  1. Nice mix. There’s quite a bit of overlap with the first Soul Jazz compilation of the same name, which was a superb disc (Vol. 2 is also good). I hadn’t heard ‘Bargain Basement Dress’ before though, it’s great.

    I’ve grown quite fond of Kitty Wells’ version of ‘Delta Dawn’, which you ended with, so I’m curious to hear more of her recordings from that period. It seems the 1972 LP it’s from – I’ve Got Yesterday – has never been on CD or otherwise reissued since – one I’ll look out for.
