You Are So Wonderful
Cat: OOT 007. Rel: 11 Jun 20
Soul
  1. You Are So Wonderful (3:43)
  2. Without You (3:19)
Review: During his time working at Jazzman, Athens of the North founder Euan Fryer tracked down the late, great Avelino Pitts, whose impossible-to-find mid 1970s work with Gold counts as some of the deepest psychedelic soul ever recorded. Here, Fryer offers up two of Gold's greatest, previously featured on a 2011 Jazzman compilation, on "45" for the first time. Both songs are deep, fluid, emotional and evocative, with Pitts' impassioned lead vocals rising above intricately detailed backing tracks that prioritise twinkling pianos, reverb-laden slow grooves and slowly shifting basslines over cheap soul showmanship. As a result, from the first listen you'll be hooked.

Looking For A Place
Cat: OOT 008. Rel: 10 Dec 20
Soul
  1. Looking For A Place (2:26)
  2. Baby Let Me Take You Home (2:14)
Review: More rare, hard-to-find treasure from Athens of the North offshoot Ocean of Tears. The tracks showcased here were first featured on the sole single from obscure Mississippi garage band the Spyres and credited vocalist Mark Prewitt, a 1967 release that has been all but impossible to find ever since. The track order has been reversed this time round in order to showcase original B-side 'Looking For a Place', a heart-breaking slice of evocative, slow-motion soul slightly influenced by British beat music of the period. Speaking of British beat music, turn to the flip for original A-side 'Baby Let Me Take You Home', a cheery, organ-heavy cover of the Animals song of the same name.

Who Do You Think You're Fooling
Cat: OOT 004. Rel: 20 Jun 19
Soul
  1. Who Do You Think You're Fooling (part I) (3:10)
  2. Who Do You Think You're Fooling (part II) (3:01)
Review: The latest must-have reissue on Athens Of The North's psychedelic-minded Ocean of Tears offshoot comes from Symphonic Four, a St Louis-based combo who released one seven-inch - from which both these tracks are taken - on local label Zudan in 1978 or 79. Interestingly, "Who Do You Think You're Fooling" - a languid, bass-heavy deep soul treat with a suitably psychedelic sound - was reportedly recorded in Detroit with members of Parliament/Funkadelic amongst the backing musicians. The A side "Part 1" version is the more straight-laced of the pair, though we prefer the wilder and weirder "Part 2" version on the flip, where odd electronic noises, delay-laden vocals and reverb-heavy instrumentation create a seriously psychedelic mood.
