F|O Points on this item

Housed in a spectacular cover that recalls the great 1960s soul compilations, the music ranges from hits recorded by Jimmy Hughes and Clarence Carter to recently uncovered tracks from names such as Ben & Spence and Ralph “Soul” Jackson and several more which make their vinyl debut. There are early contributions from backroom boys such as Dan Penn, Spooner Oldham and future Swampers Jimmy Johnson and Roger Hawkins as members of the Del-Rays.

Every record label has great records that failed to scale the charts, and Fame was no different. Arthur Conley would go on to great success with ‘Sweet Soul Music’ but his two singles for the Fame label, great though they were, never really sold. Records by Art Freeman and James Barnett became northern soul classics, whilst June Conquest and Jeanie Greene were early proof of what Fame could do with female singers.
