For 21 years, Scottish Pop band Deacon Blue have kept their fans happy and the charts busy with hit singles, hot selling albums and sold-out tours. The band's hitmaking formula falls somewhere in between the slickness of Sade and the quirkiness of Prefab Sprout, yet they are constantly evolving, musically. This compilation celebrates their anniversary with 16 of their biggest hits ('Dignity', 'Real Gone Kid', 'Your Swaying Arms', etc) plus three brand new tracks: 'Bigger Than Dynamite', 'Haunted' and 'One About Loneliness'.

Genre: Jazz, Blues | Label: Sunset Blvd Records

Multi-instrumentalist & vocalist Slim Gaillard's joyous music appealed to adults and little children alike, with songs about love, traveling, potato chips, beer, and everything in between. Searching For You: The Lost Singles of McVouty (1958-1974) is the first collection of new Gaillard music officially released with the endorsement of the Gaillard family in decades. Very little is known about the label sources (i.e., Putti Records, SGM Records, Delgado, Blue Chip Records, etc.), but they all seem to have been made for companies likely owned by Slim that he was sending out to A&R men and radio stations trying to score regional hits. Most tracks in this collection come from co-producer Tom Samuels, who won a series of eBay auctions containing rare 45s.

Nancy Wilson was one of the most prolific singers of the 1960s. Her style was all encompassing, taking in ballads, jazz, R&B, show tunes and pop music, making her classification as a singer hard to define but that is part of her charm and a key element in her seemingly endless career which continues today. Collected here are her first two albums 'Like In Love' and 'Something Wonderful' plus four bonus tracks which include "My Foolish Heart", which was her first taste of chart success. Although this collection of Nancy's early material may lack charting hits, it is chock full of great songs including a wonderful version of T-Bone Walker's "Call It Stormy Monday".

Percy Mayfield is commonly described as 'The Poet Laureate of the Blues', by contemporary writers and historians and he enjoyed a string of hits on the Los Angeles based, Specialty label during the early 50s and then enjoyed a major renaissance as a songwriter in the 60s thanks to Ray Charles. This superb double CD features all of his greatest recordings and contains the original versions of such well known classics as "Please Send Me Someone To Love", "Strange Things Happening" and "The River's Invitation". This is the most complete collection of Percy Mayfield's work yet released and is an absolute must for all blues and R&B fans.

When we talk about those artists who represent the transition between blues/r&b and soul it is usually Ray Charles, James Brown and Sam Cooke who come to the fore. The subject of this 2CD collection, Nappy Brown is not usually in the mix but after you have listened to this collection of his singles released between 1954 and 1962 you will certainly be wondering why.

Say what you want about the Cult, a band who will certainly go down as one of the most schizophrenic in rock history, but singer Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy could sure write a great tune. Just glance at a few titles included on the greatest-hits collection Pure Cult: The Singles 1984-1995: "Edie (Ciao Baby)," "Love Removal Machine," "She Sells Sanctuary," "Wild Flower," "Fire Woman," "Rain," "Lil' Devil" – you get the picture. Spread haphazardly across the disc (rather than in chronological order), each track's uniqueness is even more evident, further showcasing the Cult's fearless creativity. Early songs such as "Spiritwalker" and "Resurrection Joe" will surprise most fans with their class and maturity, while later cuts like "Wild Hearted Son," "Heart of Soul," and "Coming Down" (from their disappointing latter-day albums) are given new life when viewed on their own merits.

Before his untimely death in 1963, blues guitarist Elmore James was one of the most influential players in the genre, with a distinctive sound that would inspire everyone from Stevie Ray Vaughan to the Rolling Stones. Though he covered a variety of different blues styles throughout the 1950s, his unique, amped-up tone came from a standard acoustic guitar that he had modified with electric pick-ups. This two-disc collection from the Acrobat label covers all of James' A- & B-side singles from his 1951 debut to the year just before his death. His cover of Robert Johnson's "Dust My Broom" would become one of his signature songs and it leads off this 54-track collection, which also includes standouts like "The Sky Is Crying," "Rollin' and Tumblin'," and "Early in the Morning." This is a solid introduction to one of the post-war blues' biggest icons.

Bobby Bland, often known as Bobby 'Blue' Bland, was one of the best blues, R&B and soul singers of the post-war era, recognized as one of the finest interpreters of blues-influenced songs, comparable within his genre to the likes of Frank Sinatra in the broader popular spectrum. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame described him as second in stature only to B.B. King as a product of Memphis's Beale Street blues scene. He enjoyed chart success right through until the 1980s, but this extensive collection of his formative decade and more includes all his R&B No. 1s plus other landmark recordings.
