Various Artists: Spotlight On Fraternity / Various

1. Product Details

In the 1950s and 60s the Cincinnati recording scene was dominated by Syd Nathans King label whose R&B catalogue made it a major player among post-war independents. In its shadow was Fraternity a smaller concern launched by Harry Carlson in 1954. The well-respected Carlson set about building an artist roster which reflected his conservative musical taste scoring smash hits by Cathy Carr and Jimmy Dorsey a couple of years later which established the label as an indie to be reckoned with. Here though we spotlight decidedly non-MOR Fraternity recordings by influential guitar hero Lonnie Mack soulful girl group the Charmaines bluesy singer-guitarist Albert Washington and female duo the 2 Of Clubs. For those with appetites whetted by this old-fangled 7-inch vinyl sampler further Fraternity recordings by each of these artists can be found elsewhere in the Ace Records catalogue. For now though heres your chance to enjoy four fine examples of the sound of mid-60s Cincinnati.

1.1 Sa-Ba-Hoola - Lonnie Mack
1.2 Jealous Woman -Albert Washington the Kings
1.3 Rockin Pneumonia - the Charmaines
