    King & Queen (50th Anniversary Edition)

    King & Queen is a studio album by American recording artists Otis Redding and Carla Thomas, originally released on March 16, 1967, by Stax Records. It is Thomas' fourth album and Redding's sixth and the final studio album before his death on December 10, 1967. Influenced by Marvin Gaye's duets, the album features ten covers of soul classics and the eleventh finishing song co-written by Redding.


    The album includes crossover hits Tramp and Knock on Wood. Following Redding's death, the single Lovey Dovey was also released. The original album's liner notes were written by Tennessee Senator Howard H. Baker, Jr.

    Carla

    Paired with Stax writing whiz-kids Isaac Hayes and David Porter, Thomas had her greatest chart run, beginning with the hit B-A-B-Y and continuing with Let Me Be Good to You. Both of those appear here, alongside evocative slabs of country-soul in covers of Hank Williams's I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry and Patsy Cline's I Fall to Pieces. For good measure, Thomas also tries her hand at the blues with covers of Howlin' Wolf's Little Red Rooster and Jimmy Reed's Baby What You Want Me to Do?

Redding's impassioned, sweat-soaked delivery kept him straddling both pop and soul charts until his untimely death in 1967. Here is a 180-gram vinyl exact reproduction of King & Queen, a 1967 duet album with Carla Thomas. Everything is taken from the absolute master tapes in knockout stereo. Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fabulous!

    Twist Uptown

    The Crystals' first LP Twist Uptown, originally released in the summer of 1962, occupies an important position in Phil Spector's remarkable body of work. As the first full album produced by Spector and the first LP to be released on his legendary Philles label, it's a crucial cornerstone in the building of the fabled Wall of Sound. Beyond its historic significance, though, Twist Uptown retains a timeless resonance, thanks to Spector's seminal studio wizardry and the Crystals' sweet-but-streetwise vocal magic.


    The New York-based Crystals, all of whom were still in their teens at the time, were handpicked by Spector as the first act signed to Philles, and the first performers to receive the full-on Wall of Sound studio treatment. The quintet quickly scored major successes with their Spector-produced singles There's No Other (Like My Baby) and Uptown. The latter, penned by Brill building stalwarts Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, also made history for introducing a new level of gritty social realism to pop.


    Indeed, Twist Uptown perfectly embodies the combination of yearning innocence and worldlier emotions that would come to define Spector's greatest work. In addition to the aforementioned classics and the minor hit Oh Yeah, Maybe Baby, the album features such lesser-known girl-group gems as I Love You Eddie, Please Hurt Me, What A Nice Way to Turn Seventeen and the one-of-a-kind oddity Frankenstein Twist, along with an early version On Broadway, actually recorded before the Drifters' reworked hit version, and an upbeat take on the Carla Thomas chestnut Gee Whiz.
