In 1963, Fantasy hired legendary L.A. production team Cliff Goldsmith and Ray Shanklin to furnish artists for their R&B subsidiary. Over the next two years the team would produce a small but perfectly formed catalog of classy, soulful blues of the highest quality, showcased for the first time on this 25 track CD. It features 7 tracks by Little Johnny Taylor that are totally new to CD, including three titles previously unissued. Also featured are blues stalwarts like Clay Hammond and Saunders King, along with a handful of more obscure acts like Del Cunningham, Joe Johnson, Billy Keene, Rob Robinson and others. All tracks were cut in L.A. from 1963-65, with this being the debut on CD for 22 of the 24 sides.
