When my Ace colleagues Roger Armstrong and Peter Gibbon began combing the Stax vaults for unreleased recordings in the 1990s, they were surprised by the quality and quantity of the material. As soon as they returned to the UK they began compiling CDs from these vault goodies. A reassessment of the remaining unissued material over the last couple of years has led to many more highly agreeable Stax packages, and this month sees the release of the first-ever CD by Memphis’ underrated sweet soulsters the Newcomers. Memphis' underrated sweet soulsters finally get their own CD. The group's complete Volt, Stax and Truth singles, with 13 additional masters and demos, many released for the first time.
