Welcome to MUCHO MUSIC
The No 1 shop for rare and collectible CDs – plus the odd dab of vinyl. Although we specialise in Old School soul, we love blues, R & B and rock ‘n’ roll very much as well. We aim to stock all the important reissue and new CDs of the styles of music from all over the world. This is the best music from the 50s to the 80s all under one roof, from hard to find out of print items to the latest re-issues. Our stock is expanding every month so check back here regularly for new releases.
DEEP SOUL DELIGHTS VOL 1
The excellent Li-Jan label from Thailand kicks off what we hope will be a series of CDs with an absolute cracker. Deep Soul Delights has 20 tracks of top top quality music - not a dud anywhere to be seen. An absolutely unmissable release - a sure fire success. Wonderful!
This CD collects all of Lee Moses’ non-album singles and B-sides, plus three never-released tracks together for the first time ever. Most of the material here pre-dates 1971’s Time and Place album, reflecting his initial bid for stardom via a series of now-legendary 45s recorded with Atlanta producer Johnny Brantley. What remains is an oeuvre that has become synonymous with raw and emotionally charged Southern soul. Essential listening for anyone with a heart. All tracks are remastered.
Memphis veteran Don Bryant returns with a stonking new CD. Some remakes from the superb Bryant songbook and a couple of new songs all done in a loving reprise of the 70s Hi sound. The best new recordings of 2020 no question! We also stock the LP - contact us for details. Unmissable!
WEST COAST WINNERS
Excellent selection of rare and obscure West Coast indie soul from 1962 - 1982. Really fine songs from artists including Vernon Garrett, Betty & Jay, Carl Underwood, Leon Haywood and Jesse James. This is Vol 18 in the first class SGTM catalogue. Another gem.
DEEP DIP INTO MISSISSIPPI
SOUL VOL 2 - GREENVILLE
As far as we are aware, this is the only ever retrospective of Mississippi music with the Greenville connection. As the notes state, this compilation is probably the first time these songs have been available since the records were pressed over 50 years ago. No big names here – no soul or blues superstars and no national hits either, but you will find a heartbeat of little label music – the backbone of Afro-American culture as it was heard in the juke joints and bars of the Mississippi Delta in the 60s.
CHESS HIDDEN GEMS VOL 1
This really is a little gem of a CD. 24 of the rarest Chess sides of the 50s including some gospel from the wonderful Rev. Ballenger, some very tough blues from the likes of Calvin Bostick and Lou Sargent as well as group sounds from the 4 Cruisers. Chock full of lovely R & B! Highly recommended.
BROTHERS & SISTERS OF SOUL
The Red Onion label brings us another interesting compilation this time featuring a mix of male, female and mixed groups in their Relative Soul series. Obscurities abound and it would be a very committed collector who had these outstanding tracks on original 45 in their collection. So we thank Red Onion for making these rare tracks available to us all.
JAMES & BOBBY PURIFY
JAMES AND BOBBY PURIFY shot to fame in late 1966 with their debut single for Bell Records, ‘I’m Your Puppet’,which quickly became established as a soul classic. Written by Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham, the song was a smash hit, reaching the US Top 10 Pop and R&B Billboard charts, and was nominated for a Grammy. Thereafter, the pair recorded two albums and several singles for Bell before eventually leaving Bell in 1968. Named after their biggest hit, I’M YOUR PUPPET includes all of James And Bobby Purify’s recordings during that dizzy two year period, including both LPs, all non-album tracks and a clutch of recordings which only surfaced in 2002. Many tracks are currently unavailable on CD.
