New Breed is back with a historical bang. The opening track and title inspiration is Aaron Collins & the Teen Queens' 'Every Saturday Night'. Its R&B pedigree is inestimable; Aaron was a member of the Flairs/Flares LA vocal group and wrote songs for Z.Z. Hill, Jackie Day, Cookie Jackson and others and, in 1972, Ray Charles recorded his 'Every Saturday Night' for ABC. The Modern tape vaults have given up this original 1966 R&B take of the song with both Aaron and his sisters, the Teen Queens, performing at their best. All the more remarkable as the girls had not recorded since 1962 and it was to be their last session, both dying tragically a few years later. More unissued beauties come from East Coast outfit the Corvairs with 'I'll Never Do It Again', Oakland's funky bluesman Johnny Talbot and 'Satisfied', Gay Meadows' Atlanta-recorded 'Head Doctor', a trio of obscure Ohio R&B outfits - Little Macey & The Valiants, Big Charley & The Domans and Pee Wee Foster. Rare 45s come courtesy of Curly Mays, Pat Garvis, Esko Wallace and the Tren-teens. There are Ace CD tracks that went largely undiscovered by the New Breed crowd from Prince Conley, Rob Robinson and the Lon-Genes, while other highlights come from the very recently discovered Freddie Williams track 'Purty Little Mama' recorded for Norman Petty in New York, Slim & The Twilights' New Orleans-sounding 'Family Man' and Tony Clarke's early Detroit rocker 'Your Love Must Be Taboo' - presented digitally from master tape for the first time. We have stunning photos of Margaret Lewis, Flora D, the Metallics, Rob Robinson and Johnny "Guitar" Watson, along with some fax 'n' info for the serious Breeder. Compilation and notes by Ady Croasdell.
