Synopsis

Product Description
A plethora of truly great girl groups recorded for Memphis's greatest labels. Stax had Jeanne and the Darlings, the Emotions and the Charmels and in the 70s Hi had the wondrous sounds of Quiet Elegance. In recent years we have exhumed the Sounds Of Memphis archive and brought the spotlight onto Barbara & The Browns. From the same archive come the soul masterpieces of the Minits. This CD brings together all 12 of that group's recordings for Sounds Of Memphis.Consisting of sisters Mary Ann and Carolyn Watkins and Mary Anderson, they were signed to Sounds Of Memphis by Dan Greer and released three singles, including the highly sought-after northern soul classic Still A Part Of Me. Their sound was in the pop-soul arena, possibly trying to capture some of the market of the Honey Cone or the post-Diana Ross Supremes. The compilation includes all of their singles, the unreleased tracks that have dotted our Sounds Of Memphis compilations and two unreleased tracks - a vibes heavy version of their second single Lover Boy and an amazing unreleased sister funk number called If You Don't Like My Apples.The Sounds Of Memphis Archive allows us to fill the booklet with an incredible array of photographs of the girls. In full color, they were taken in and around the Memphis-based studio at the time of recording, making for an incredible celebration of this little-known act.
