||Two beautifully down-trodden bluesy popcorn sides here, with strong vocals from the criminally under-recorded Mamie Perry. There is so much character on show on these two melancholic sides, both recorded at the turn of the 60s - spinning out of the R&B that had ruled the 50s and clearly anticipating the arrival of the newly refined ?Soul? music genre that was about to take over. These two songs are on the cusp of that wave, and as you can plainly hear, there are strong traces of Jazz, Blues and more within them - soul music wasn?t merely the melding of gospel to R&B as many lazy spectators have had it. They are also the kind of unique and unusual songs which are hard to categorize but perfectly fit our bourgeoning Popcorn label.
