Album Review

Complete Goldwax Singles Volume 1 1962-1966 [coll] – [Ace Records]

Cousin Mary   7/10/2010   CD, Soul

Volume 1 (of 3) CD reissue not just the BEST of, but ALL of the 45’s released by Goldwax and its subsidiaries between 1962 and 1966. A lot of variety, mostly good and often great cuts from this Southern soul label. Tracks are arranged in chronological order, with both the A and B side from the original 45, sound quality is excellent throughout..Really took me back – some novelty songs, “The Day the World Cried” about JFK’s assassination, and a couple of “dance craze” tracks. DJs should note that if any listeners request a “break up” song, this collection has enough for at least 10 handkerchiefs. Some tracks lean toward soul, some have a strong country flavor, others are more pop or blues.
