F|O Points on this item

Yet another essential helping from the seemingly bottomless well of archival finds from the Numero label, Eccentric Soul: Consolidated Productions is a generous collection of 28 incredible slices of scorching hot R&B. Culled from the plentiful offerings of Mel Alexander's long-running empire of the same name, Consolidated Productions includes big badass numbers from the likes of Lee Harvey, B.B. Carter, Marilyn Calloway, Del Reys, Jimmy “Preacher” Ellis, and plenty more. Lovingly remastered from the original tapes, do yourself a favour and tune in to this latest volume of Eccentric Soul! - Flying Out

Operating in the farthest margins of L.A.’s cutthroat music business from 1961-1991, Mel Alexander’s Consolidated Productions was among the longest running Black-owned independent record conglomerates of the 20th century. Caught up in a confusing web of imprints—including Ajax, Angel Town, Car-A-Mel, Emanuel, and Kris—this first volume gathers 28 smoldering R&B cuts by the likes of Lee Harvey, B.B. Carter, Marilyn Calloway, Del Reys, Deb Tones, De Velles, Gene Russell’s Trio, Jimmy “Preacher” Ellis, and Ty Karim.

Remastered from the original 1/4” tapes, Consolidated Productions Vol. I includes carefully researched annotation, discography, and photographs from a vital producer.
