The 2LP vinyl collector’s edition of Right Now: Atlantic Club Soul And Deep Cuts sees Lois Wilson (Mojo, Record Collector) select 32 of the most sought-after cuts from her 86-track 3CD compilation.

Following her highly successful explorations of the Motown and Chess catalogues, Lois Wilson (Mojo, Record Collector) turns her attention to the iconic Manhattan-based Atlantic Records. Founded in 1947 by Ahmet Ertegun and Herb Abramson, the key participants in the company’s rise to success included studio engineer Tom Dowd, consummate record man Jerry Wexler, Ahmet’s brother Nesuhi and the dynamic songwriting/production team of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, and crucial early signings included Joe Turner, Ruth Brown, Ray Charles, Chuck Willis, Clyde McPhatter and LaVern Baker.

All those names are represented on Right Now, alongside other performers who recorded for Atlantic and its subsidiary Atco (founded in 1955) in the forties, fifties and early sixties, years which saw the evolution of rhythm & blues into soul. The diversity of Atlantic’s roster is represented by the presence of early Atlantic hit-makers Stick McGhee and Joe Morris, consummate soul singers Solomon Burke, Ben E. King, Bettye LaVette and Barbara Lewis, a pre-Motown Isley Brothers, New Orleans piano man Professor Longhair, saxophonists Willis “Gator” Jackson and King Curtis, blues guitar pioneer T-Bone Walker, Louisiana rock ’n’ roller Dale Hawkins, jazz singer Mel Torme, and the vocal group sound of the Clovers, the Coasters and the Falcons (then including Wilson Pickett and Mack Rice in their ranks). Some of these recordings were acknowledged successes from their initial release; others have acquired popularity among collectors and on the club scene over the intervening decades.

Right Now offers club-friendly and deep catalogue selections drawn from the wealth of rhythm & rock released on the hallowed label.
