I was saying a while back how it was a bit of a break to have only four reviews to write for the next Ugly Things, issue #54—-well, those are now written, but UT editor/publisher Mike Stax has convinced me to take on another four reviews, and as I am anxious to get free review copies of all of these, I happily agreed. One CD and three LP’s:

CD: various artists, MORE LONG-LOST HONKERS AND SHAKERS (Ace, UK)

the long-awaited second volume in the fine ACE series of obscure rockin’ instrumentals, with 14 unissued sides

more honkers

…………………………………………..

LP’s (all are Record Store Day 2020 vinyl from the Org Music label):

NAT TURNER REBELLION, “Laugh To Keep From Crying”, acclaimed unreleased 1969-70 LP from Philly area soul-funk group

Various Artists, “Sun Records Curated by Record Store Day, Volume 7: Blues”, nice one-LP collection of Sun Records blues–don’t forget that Sun started off as a Blues label

JIMMY SWEENEY, “Without You”, nice collection of released and unreleased sides from this Southern singer-songwriter whose famous “unknown” demo “Without You” (included here) was played for Elvis by Sam Phillips in 1954 (Elvis later recorded the song in the 1970’s). Sweeney will make a lot of new fans from this eclectic and well-researched set.

And I’ve already got a few albums set to review in UT #55, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves here….
