Various – Rockin Soul Party 5


SKU: Koko Mojo 175 Categories: , ,


Koko Mojo Records' album Let's Throw A Rockin' Soul Party 05 showcases thirty Doo-Wop, Soul, Pop, Tamla, and Rhythm & Blues titles with cross-over appeal. The plethora of recordings is sourced from the years 1959 to 1963. There are several big-name performers from the soulful side of rockin' music and the album showcases twenty-nine different artists including; Roy Hamilton whose beautiful voice brings to life the melodic and catchy If Only I Had Known, The Rivingtons version of Unchain My Heart is uplifting, and The Robins will enthral you with the tale of Live Wire Suzie. The Marvelettes are hoping for love during Please Mr Postman, Memphian Jeb Stuart is Coming Down With The Blues, the delightful Dee Clark is a male song thrush serenading a lady with the cry of Because I Love You, Sammy Turner performs with The Twisters the spirited Sweet Annie Laurie, and solo he sings the catchy love song Always. Eugene Church has lost his love but has not given up hope during Pretty Baby Won't You Come On Home, and the same sentiment applies to The Isley Brothers whose plea is You Better Come Home, and Marv Johnson has a love wish and consults the Magic Mirror. The not so well known artist who despite failing to gain a chart hit recorded fantastic songs include; Myrna March, Our Love, It Grows, The Lions, No One (No One But You), Taffie Lee, Stay Away From My Baby, Freddy Jaye, Thinking Of You, The Pleasures, Music City, and The Metallics who close the album with Need Your Love. If you don't know the names we invite you to become acquainted with the singers on this album, you won't be disappointed! The album is compiled by Austin, Texas-based Mr Rock and Soul and topped off with the best possible sound quality possible from our mastering team at our El Paso, Texas, Studio. The concept is lavishly decorated by Furbman / Retrograph, and the sleeve is made from top-quality.
