Ace has covered his Goldwax recordings in great detail but we have never released a Greatest Hits compilation for music fans who want one handy package of the very best tracks. Apart from the hit singles there are classic southern soul tracks like 'Lover's Competition', 'Life Turned Her That Way', 'A Losing Game' and 'Forgetting You'. Those were also issued as Goldwax 45s whereas Carr's stunning version of Otis' 'These Arms Of Mine', Wee Willie Walker's 'A Lucky Loser' and his own funky 'Your Love Made A U-Turn' were not discovered until 25 to 30 years after their recording. His deep soul takes on the Masqueraders' 'Let's Face Facts' and Spencer Wiggins' 'Love Attack' also languished until the late 70s when they sneaked out unexpectedly on expensive Japanese LPs.
