Can't say I'm actually listening to these yet but tomorrow I'm going into London to investigate the recent Japanese Atlantic Soul & R&B reissues on CD.

They're only £5 each (original track listing, original covers, no bonus tracks) and they look FANTASTIC.
The record labels of the 60s certainly knew how to catch the eye in a record shop, has there ever been better artwork in any discipline?

I'm going for the two Don Covay CDs from '65 and '66 and the Doris Troy one from '63 (George would definitely have approved) but I'll probably come away with more.

I've had my eye on those Atlantic titles for some time.

One of my best friends, who is a huge James Taylor fan, mentioned that 43 years ago today his recording of "You've Got a Friend: debuted on the Hot 100. I decided to celebrate by listening to Tapestry.  ;D

It sure is. When I listen to it it takes me back to the summer I turned 8 and my best friend/cousin and I included quite a few of these songs in the show we put on in the garage for our captive audience (our parents). We even had real microphones courtesy of that great band "Dog Breath" who practiced there. (They were well known in several counties.) The mics weren't live but we still thought they made us look quite cool. LOL Of course these songs have much more meaning to me now and I'd love it even without the memories but they do make it extra special.

I've got a new hero! Don Covay. I can't tell you how wonderful the two Japanese reissues are. And for £5 each they're a steal. Alas, I didn't see the Doris Troy one, but I'll try in HMV next week.

The Japanese are also putting out a huge number of Atlantic Jazz reissues from the same era, also at £5, and while I can't see myself getting Mel Torme or any MOR supper club stuff (in fact, I won't!), there are some really fantastic looking CDs by the likes of the MJQ (who recorded for Apple) I might take a punt on.
Many are worth buying for the sleeve design alone.
