UK Sue Story - Vol 4. CD.
(Kent - CDKEND 258)
It’s well known that UK Sue’s A&R guru Guy Stevens always intended to compile and issue a fourth vinyl volume of 'The Sue Story'. Now, just 39 years after the original Volume 3 found its way into record stores and by genuine popluar demand, Ace and Kent have further honoured Guy’s visionary A&R policy by putting our own spin on things, with a Volume 4 that brings together a bunch of rarities all originally released in the UK on Sue that may well have formed that core of Guy’s own ‘wish list’ for a fourth vinyl instalment.The CD features many artists whose names will, for UK soul and R&B collectors, at least be indelibly associated with the familiar yellow and red imprint. It also features many extremely obscure acts whose repertoire took an extra amount of tracking down, but who we’re extremely glad to have on board alongside the more familiar names.The featured repertoire ranges from Chicago R&B to Big City Soul, from stomping rockers to the deepest Southern Soul from the Stax studios all totally reflective of the catholic tastes and A&R policy of the late, great Guy S. Around a third of the tracks have never been reissued on CD or LP! Meticulously mastered from the best available sources, and lovingly annotated by UK R&B journalist and UK Sue obsessive Mike Atherton, this is as compelling a collection of truly great 60s soul and R&B as you’ll find anywhere.
