This LP was originally posted in September, 2007 but the post was rewritten some years later. For this re-up I have included new cover scans as the original scans dated from a time when I hadn't quite mastered the art of scanning a 12" LP sleeve. The volume on the tracks has been boosted using MP3Gain. The re-up also includes a folder of EP cover scans and 45 rpm single label shots from Joan K.

As for the music, this is one hell of a collection of dynamite R&B instrumentals. Satisfaction guaranteed!

Thank you for this masterpiece!

You're welcome Kurt! Your other request is "in hand" - researching additional info to go with the re-up, but new label scans have been completed. Should appear in a couple of days.

Thx for all the amazing comps you share! Nice to hear someone else uses MP3Gain. It's been indispensible for me for over a decade.

Thanks Clarence. Nowadays I tend to do volume boosting and normalizing at the WAV editing stage of converting my vinyl. Magix Audio Cleaner is good for that. I still use MP3Gain on older rips, and yes I agree that it has been an invaluable program for getting the best out of my mp3 collection.

A little suggestion to all Sonny Thompson fans. You Tube has lots and lots of Sonny Thompson music. Check it out, it's worth it! (Beware, there's a basist also named Sonny Thompson, but with a totally different kind of music.)

YouTube is a joy for fans of old R&B, Jazz and Rock'n'Roll. Beware - you go on intending to listen to a track or two and three hours later you're wondering where the time has gone. I particularly enjoy the posts by people who play the original 78s and 45s.
