Little Honey CD (2008)
Live & Lively / Soul Country: Dial Records Serie 3 CD music WEST, from 2007, was one of Lucinda Williams' most personal and dark albums, a heartbroken meditation, mostly about the recent death of her mother. In years past, Williams likely would have retreated following such a major statement: in the first two decades of her career, spaces of nearly five years between albums weren't unheard of. Instead, the Louisiana-bred singer-songwriter knuckled down and recorded the exuberant LITTLE HONEY, perhaps her sunniest and most gleefully rocking album ever. Kicking off with the stomping, sexy single "Real Love," this is Williams in the rollicking "Passionate Kisses" side of her musical personality. Her lyrics are as sharp as ever, particularly on the wry ballad "If Wishes Were Horses" and the Elvis Costello duet, "Jailhouse Tears." Other guests include Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs, whose Buckingham-Nicks harmonies decorate several tunes, adding to the album's sunny and poppy vibe.

Tell Mama: The Complete Muscle Shoals Sessions CD (2001)
Live & Lively / Soul Country: Dial Records Serie 3 songs Digitally remastered by Erick Labson (Universal Mastering Studios-West, North Hollywood, California.
Having already been an established leading soul singer for 13 years and having 18 R&B hits to her name, in 1967 Etta went to record in Alabama at the legendary Muscle Shoals studio. The result was her most accomplished album, on which her voice had been mixed to perfection, allowing her to sound strong on the previously distorted high notes. James was rightly seen in a different light as one of the great soul voices of all time as she belted out powerful tracks such as "The Love Of My Man" and "Watch Dog." Her slower numbers were equally arresting, including the wonderful "I'd Rather Go Blind."

Boogaloo Down Broadway CD (1968)
Live & Lively / Soul Country: Dial Records Serie 3 album for sale Hot on the heels of his "Boogaloo Down Broadway" single, this album was not a burningly original statement, and didn't contain anything else on the order of "Boogaloo Down Broadway," but was an enjoyable mix of soul covers and originals penned by producer Jesse James. The arrangements cook really well in a lean funk-soul groove; "Cool Broadway," admittedly a knockoff of the "Boogaloo Down Broadway" vibe, has a fractured rhythm anticipating the innovations of the Meters a couple of years later. "Got What You Need" was a small soul hit, and "Baby I Need You" was a capable deep soul-type ballad. The CD reissue adds two bonus tracks: "Hitch It to the Horse," a minor hit in 1968, and "Look What Love Can Make You Do," awhich is basically the same track as "Boogaloo Down Broadway" with different lyrics. ~ Richie Unterberger

Hannibalism! CD (2001)
Live & Lively / Soul Country: Dial Records Serie 3 buy CD music The first-ever CD compilation of singles from the uncompromising Mighty Hannibal features his groundbreaking antiwar hit, "Hymn No. 5," as well as minor hits like "Jerkin' the Dog" and "I Need a Woman (Cause I'm a Man)." More revealing, perhaps, is the inclusion of several early-'70s tracks that inexplicably could not find a label to release them at the time. However, the sweet and tender declaration of love "We're Gonna Make It" and the good-time party tune "Meet Me at Mary's Place" do not prepare one for the saga of "I'm Coming Home." It is now five years after "Hymn No. 5," and the soldier's younger brother is shipping out, leaving a much more chaotic America behind: Drugs and riots are destroying his home city. He has hope, though, that he will return to a better country than he left. The song is as resonant and remarkable as the similarly themed material Marvin Gaye would release the following year. The fact that this song never saw commercial release is more than a little bit telling of the indifferent music industry Hannibal was forced to contend with. Perhaps if he had the support of a label with the prestige and promotional muscle of Motown, the story would be different. Hannibal's music is classic indie soul at its best. ~ John Duffy
Recorded between 1958 and 1972. Includes liner notes by The Mighty Hannibal.

|From the Roots Came the Rapper CD (1972)
Live & Lively / Soul Country: Dial Records Serie 3 songs The era this material represents wasn't an artistic or commercial high-water mark in Tex's career, although it's OK. Like his late-'60s sides, it bridges smooth soul with funk and anticipates rap, though it's a little lusher than his slightly earlier stuff. From From the Roots Came the Rapper itself, a highlight is the epic, eight-minute version of "Oh Me Oh My (I'm a Fool for You Baby)," which naturally includes some extended spoken sections. That and the similarly constructed 11-minute cover of "I'll Never Fall in Love Again" make you wonder whether there was some influence traveling back and forth between Tex and Isaac Hayes. The rest of that LP had fair, and not great, good-natured yet earthy soul with a bit more of a slick Northern soul production influence than his '60s records. Tex himself, surprisingly, wrote just one of the tunes, though the other writers included stalwarts Jerry Williams Jr. (aka Swamp Dogg) ("The Baby Is Mine") and Don Covay ("I Can Do It Better"). ~ Richie Unterberger
First ever CD issue of a milestone of southern soul, originally released in 1972 it's a prophecy of hip-hop to come. 20 tracks. Ace Records. 2002.
Primarily recorded between 1971 & 1975.
|Complete Dial Recordings, Vol. 4: Happy Soul/Buying a Book CD (2002)
Live & Lively / Soul Country: Dial Records Serie 3 album for sale Two Joe Tex albums from 1969 are combined onto this single-disc reissue, with the addition of both sides of a 1968 single. Happy Soul, the earlier of the pair, is one of many extremely super-loose soul concept albums of the 1960s, the inference here being that this is upbeat, good-natured, humorous soul. Actually it doesn't sound much different from Tex's usual late-'60s output, but it is short on the churchy deep soul ballads that usually occupied a large part of his repertoire and heavy on the happy, sometimes almost slightly zany songs. It's good soul-funk-pop, naturally short on songs that are as good as the greatest hits, but with some real good 'uns, like the ebullient rap-dance tune "Chicken Crazy," "You Need Me Baby" (with Tex dissing a hometown boy-done-good as not good enough for the woman he wants), and the frenetic "Go Home and Do It." The ballads aren't entirely neglected, either, particularly on the slow and sweet "You Can Tell" and the inspirational "Keep the One You Got." Buying a Book isn't as upbeat, but maintains a similar level of respectable-to-high quality, and has a more balanced assortment of the gospel-influenced stompers ("We Can't Sit Down Now"), novelty humor ("It Ain't Sanitary"), slow organ-graced ballads with spoken monologues ("That's the Way," "Buying a Book"), and dance funk with hot guitar/brass/organ interplay ("Get Your Lies Together"). Tex, incidentally, wrote all of the songs on both albums, a somewhat unusual feat for soul stars of the time. The bonus tracks, both sides of the 1968 single "Betwixt and Between"/"Chocolate Cherry," are actually instrumentals by Tex's band, both of them moody funk-soul tunes with a cinematic sweep to the horns. ~ Richie Unterberger
The Dial Records Story, Volume 4. The late Joe Tex was amongst the most popular Southern Soul artists of the mid-late 60s. Equally at home with up-tempo songs and even disco, Joe's major successes came with a series of 'preaching' deep soul singles that espoused the down home values of life in America's Deep South. This series reissues all the Tex LPs on CD for the first time and contains all his US and international hits, plus bonus tracks, recorded for Dial records until his death in 1982. Vol. 4 moves into 1969 with two more albums sold through Atlantic, Happy Soul and Buying A Book. Both albums were entirely written by Tex and the performances are exemplary. Package comes with extensive liner notes from Clive Richardson and fold out poster inlays with rare photos. Bonus tracks: 'Betwixt And Between' and 'Chocolate Cherry'. RPM. 2005.
2 LPs on 1 CD: HAPPY SOUL (1969)/BUYING A BOOK (1969).
