OUTTA SIGHT presents 24 more rare R&B treasures from the Great American Cellar of Soul.
A second foray into the hidden sounds of black America has unearthed the best collection yet of rare, classic, upbeat, unheard and exotic rhythm & blues. The set includes Phil Upchurch’s million selling MOD anthem “You Can’t Sit Down”, presented here as it was originally recorded, parts 1 and 2 segued together. Other hits include Little Willie John’s R&B dancer “I’m Shakin’” (covered by Jack White in 2012) and Ben E King’s “Young Boy Blues” (originally released in 1961 and later reactivated as the title track to his 1964 hit album). Other familiar luminaries of soul performing their lesser know sides are Little Milton, Ruth Brown, Mitty Collier, The Miracles, Johnnie & Joe and Dakota Staton who graces our cover. But the real stars of this set are the largely unknown, forgotten and unsung heroes Jimmy Rogers, Jeanie Allen, Sally Stanley, Paul Perryman, Calvin And Clarence and Clentt Gant.
Lost in R&B… Lost In Sin…
