Various: Shake What You Brought! - Soul Treasures From The SSS International Label (LP, Colored Vinyl)
(Sundazed Reords) 13 tracks, colored vinyl (gold)
On Shelby S. Singleton's SSS International label, some serious bragging rights emerged, including the funky-soaked "There's A Break In The Road" penned by Allen Toussaint, Mickey Murray's relentless "Sticky Sue", Bettye LaVette's outstanding revival of "Piece Of My Heart" and other sensational workouts! Cut by Kevin Gray and pressed on golden vinyl at Third Man Pressing!
Inaugurated in 1967, the catalogue of the Nashville-based label SSS International included pop, country and rock, as well as a particularly strong soul repertoire, which produced a whole series of great records in the early 70s. In addition to producing hits for his Nashville-based label, Singleton also had an uncanny knack for picking up other great masters - Betty Harris and Robert Parker were produced in New Orleans, while Mickey Murray, Sam Dees and Clifford Curry contributed breathtaking sides to the fertile catalogue from other soul capitals. After the beginning of the new decade the activities of SSS International were discontinued, but we can certainly be glad that he took so much time for this insane soul of the South.
