2. The Frightnrs "I'd Rather Go Blind"

The Frightnrs

Buy it on Bandcamp - bit.ly/1CLoQKX Buy it at the Daptone Shop - http://shop.daptonerecords.com Buy it Digitally - radi.al/TheFrightnrs We would like you all to give a gregarious “Great To Meet Ya’” to Daptone’s newest sensation, The Reigning Rocksteady Kings of Queens, New York: The Frightnrs. Once you hear their version of the late great Etta James’ classic (pressed into Daptone Family recipe petroleum based chips), “I’d Rather go Blind,” you will find it impossible to not want to get down with friends and foes alike, imbibing on rum-flavored hooch lovingly poured into a pineapple or preferred tropical-fruit shaped vessel. Flip over this waxen platter of reggae perfection and find the dubbed-out ‘VERSION’, expertly produced by long time Daptone ringer, Victor ‘Ticklah' Axelrod.

8. House Of Soul Essentials: Eddie & Ernie - "Bullets Don't Have Eyes"

House Of Soul Essentials: Eddie & Ernie -

"Bullets Don't Have Eyes" b/w "In These Very Tender Moments": http://bit.ly/1DWHYCY "Bullets Don't Have Eyes" b/w "You Make My Life A Sunny Day": http://bit.ly/1zKWCZ5 Sometime in the 1960s Hank Mullen’s friend and fellow Buffaloian Carl LaRue, an organ player, traveled with his group (Carl LaRue and His Crew) all the way to Phoenix, Arizona, where he’d secured a steady gig as the house band at the local Zanzibar club. Soon after starting the job, he would invite a young (16yr & 19yr old) vocal duo to perform some of their original songs in front of his band during shows. Ernest Johnson Jr. and Eddie (Edgar) William Campbell were eager to make it in music and for the next 10 odd years would attempt to do so. They managed to record and release a handful of singles across varied imprints spread throughout the United States, from South Carolina to Chicago, from New York to Phoenix. One of their singles, “Time Waits for No One” hit #1 on New York’s WWRL, which subsequently landed on the bill at the Apollo, appearing alongside soul heavyweight’s Gene Chandler, Wilson Pickett, and the Temptations. Through ups and downs, none of their pair’s recordings ever served to catapult them to greater fame and sadly in the early 70’s, Eddie’s premature death would close the door on their partnership. One of the duo’s last recordings, “Bullets Don’t Have Eyes” was never released at the time of its creation in 1972. The 45 was eventually released on Daptone imprint Ever-Soul in 2009. There are two versions of the 45 available in the Super Soul Super Store. One with the b-side "In These Very Tender Moments" and another 45 which features a different b-side, "You Make My Life A Sunny Day," which is exclusively available in our shop.

9. The Como Mamas "Out of the Wilderness"

The Como Mamas

MP3 available September 9th. Order the 45 at the Daptone Shop: http://bit.ly/1EuKssW With this record, The Como Mamas join forces with the boys of Menahan Street Band (billed pseudonymously here as The Radiant Rhythm Band) to lay bare the funkier side of gospel music. “The rhythms we all play were already right there in their vocals,” explains drummer Homer Steinweiss, “so it felt natural to lay down the grooves behind them.” Thomas “T-N-T” Brenneck, the up-and-coming producer who brought us both Menahan Street Band and Charles Bradley, presided over the collaboration, which took place in the old Dunham Studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. https://www.facebook.com/thecomomamas http://www.daptonerecords.com

10. House Of Soul Essentials: Bob & Gene - "I Can Be Cool"

House Of Soul Essentials: Bob & Gene -

Next up in our House of Soul Essentials series, Bob & Gene's classic soul ballad "I Can Be Cool." Pick up this 45 in the Super Soul Super Store http://bit.ly/1FYVAQy Though Bobby Nunn and Eugene Coplin were still teenagers in 1967 when Nunn's father William decided to start his own label, Mo Do Records, the duo didn't let their age stop them from spending their afternoons writing songs and practicing their harmonies. Their single "You Gave Me Love" was the first to be released on Mo Do, and before the label folded in the early '70s due to financial troubles, Bob & Gene, as they called themselves, had become local Buffalo, NY, celebrities. Looking for better musical opportunities, Bobby Nunn eventually moved to California to pursue his career further, singing with Rick James, releasing his own albums on Motown in the '80s, and working as a songwriter for other artists, while Coplin stayed in Buffalo and became an ordained minister. In 2001, record collector and soul music enthusiast David Griffiths came across a 45 from Bob & Gene, a cover of Marvin Gaye's "If This World Were Mine." Intrigued by what he heard, he contacted William Nunn, who then gave Griffiths all of Bob & Gene's old tapes. Believing there was possibility in the collection, Griffiths encouraged the family to allow him to get them released. Daptone Records, a label that specialized in funk and soul, took interest in what Griffiths presented them, and released the full-length If This World Were Mine... in 2007, shortly after the elder Nunn's death.
