CD Reviews

A Great CD
Pollybug | Philadelphia PA | 03/03/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I deliberated over buying this CD -- I really only wanted The Real Thing by Tina Britt -- but man am I glad I finally bought it! This is one really great CD, especially if you like that kind of bluesy mid 50s/early 60s rock. A highly recommended CD."
Tina Britt And So Much More!!
PETER J SAMMON | GLEN RIDGE, NEW JERSEY United States | 01/26/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sue records was founded by one Mr. Juggy Murray in 1958 and was based in NYC through the 60's. As the record co. sported several different labels e.g. Symbol and became the Northeast R&B label of that decade! Like another reviewer...I too was only after Tina Britt's..."The Real Thing" which is absolutely a dynamite record and perhaps the most overlooked R&B classic of all-time! You do really get so much more than that one great song as every track is wonderful. You even get the hard to find Poets' class..."She Blew A Good Thing." Anybody who loves the 60's sound is in for a real treat with this CD despite the monaural sound. Yes...indeed some shortcomings of the master tapes are evident but overall...Sue never sounded better!"
Underrated Soul Music

"Before Berry Gordy and Motown there was Juggy Murray and Sue Records. This collection provides a cross section of releases that pretty much were staples in the R&B market. Arguably the most overlooked and underrated producer from that era, Juggy's biggest success was with Ike & Tina Turner. A very good introduction to the Sue catalog that is available in box set format."
