bon & rau are rainy citys newcomer jacques bon and christopher rau. jacques is originally from paris and takes care of the smallville recordstore in la cité d amour. he fell in love with hamburg though when he first came there and calls st. pauli a home since a little while now. while hanging at smallville record store in hamburg, he met christopher rau, who blew away the whole smallville crew with his > ne travaillez jamais< on dérive records in 2008 and had his smallville debut with >childhood< on smallville 16. the youngsters teamed up as bon & rau and we are proud to present the 12inch debut of another smallville dreamteam. cloverleaf days was already presented on the smallvilles label compilation cd -and suddenly its morning-, that gained huge reputation last year- but it more than deserved an appearance on 12inch now. a reduced groove that takes you to somewhere unsearchable. the b-side presents two versions of brothers & sisters- a modern house-anthem that twists into your ears with a subtle melody. the poodle dub on b2 rounds up a perfect 12inch with a tribute to hamburgs finest golden pudel club. three tracks that can definitely make the moment on the dancefloor.

one of the most important harmony groups in the entirety of jamaican music, the paragons have a long and complicated history. first formed in the ska years by bob andy and tyrone evans as the duo of andy and ronnie, the group soon expanded to a quartet through the addition of howard barrett and john holt, the latter naturally assuming lead duties, following the subsequent departure of andy, holt, evans and barrett made the paragons the quintessential rock steady trio. they had an incredible run of hits for duke reid and coxsone during the mid-to-late ‘60s, and also issued some self-produced work, before holt’s solo career skyrocketed, leaving the group on the back-burner. then, in the mid-1970s, the paragons reformed, cutting material for new york-based labels such as clocktower and clintones, which led to this intriguing album, which saw material recorded in jamaica at harry j for bunny lee mixed with work cut at bullwackie’s studio in the bronx, along with re-workings of classics such as ‘left with a broken heart’ and ‘memories by the score’ is a whole range of new material, dealing with contemporary themes.
the late 1960s / early 70s brought about a change in sound for many gospel groups. producers and label heads at abc peacock recognized that the traditional sound of gospel needed to be updated to appeal to the younger market. the groups started to incorporate elements of soul and funk with arrangements influenced by the r&b records of the time. this compilation presents 13 striking examples of this seismic shift in black music by some of the greatest groups in gospel music’s rich heritage.
this compilation should enrich everybody’s soul with a mix of something for everyone who likes or wants to explore the variety of early soul tracks which are finding new favour on today’s uk soul scene. from the lesser known tracks from big name artists like aretha franklin, otis redding, gladys knight and the drifters, to established hits from the valentinos, sam cooke, steve alaimo, chuck jackson and timi yuro.
