This collection of rarities from the Sceptor vaults strengthens the case for the Shirelles to be considered the finest of the girl groups of the 60s. Lost & Found succinctly describes this rare collection of Shirelles material. The remastering job is excellent here and equally fine on all other Shirelles collections re-issued on the Ace label. Hooray!!!!
One of the hippest albums ever from the team of Harold Land and Bobby Hutcherson – and a set that's even more open than some of their other records on Blue Note or Chess! This set's a bit more electric than some of the other records from the pair – with these drawn-out Fender Rhodes lines from Bill Henderson – who comps and vamps with modal energy that really draws out some searing, searching solos from Land's tenor! Bobby's vibes are maybe a bit more restrained, but offer a key element in the overall soundshape of the record – and the rest of the lineup includes Reggie Johnson on bass, Ndugu and Woody Theus on drums, and Harold Land Jr on additional piano.

Newman, Link Davis & of course Bill Woods, the godfather of Bakersfield country. 28 tracks.
