Throughout the '60s and into the '70s, it's apparent that Ru-Jac was intent on keeping its finger on the pulse of contemporary R&B;, to the point of mimicking current acts that were enjoying mainstream popularity. I can't pretend that the artists known as Gene & Eddie weren't an attempt to create another Sam & Dave, and the tight funk of their single "I Tell You" is a wonderful track, but an almost overly obvious nod to Stax's legendary duo. Likewise, Winfield Parker's "She's So Pretty" (from Volume 4) is a fantastic dancefloor stomper obviously inspired by Wilson Pickett singles like "Land of 1,000 Dances".

The aforementioned roster is odd in that the artists are almost all relative unknowns to just about anyone but the most dedicated scholars of Baltimore's soul scene. One possible exception is the legendary Arthur Conley, who rose to fame in 1967 with the classic "Sweet Soul Music". Prior to that massive hit, Conley recorded a handful of music for Ru-Jac, including the single "I'm a Lonely Stranger" in 1964 (bringing him to the attention of Otis Redding), but the only two Conley recordings included here are demo takes of "Whole Lotta Woman" and "Hiding Out in Blue Shadows". It's refreshing to note that this collection is heavy on demos and alternate takes, giving it a real "digging through the vault" feel.

The second installment of Omnivore's four-volume The Ru-Jac Records Story concentrates on music recorded between 1964 and 1966, and as this opens with four sides recorded by Brenda Jones, a singer who had three on the previous Something Got a Hold on Me, Get Right immediately feels quite similar to its predecessor. As its 22 tracks unfurl, some crucial differences can be heard, in great part due to the inclusion of the great Southern soul singer Arthur Conley. He migrated up to Baltimore from his native Georgia and fell into the circles surrounding Ace Promotions, which was at the epicenter of Ru-Jac.

THE BALTIMORE SOUL/R&B LABEL RU-JAC RECORDS WAS FOUNDED IN 1963 by local promoter Rufus Mitchell and investor partner Jack Bennett (their names forming the Ru-Jac name). The label primarily released regional soul/R&B singles from 1963 until the mid 1970s, when Mitchell stepped away to focus on another business venture. Omnivore has already released single-artist packages by some of the label's biggest names, including Winfi eld Parker Mr. Clean: Winfield Parker At Ru-Jac (Parker also serves as the consulting producer for all of Omnivore's Ru-Jac releases) and Gene & Eddie True Enough: Gene & Eddie With Sir Joe At Ru-Jac.

Continuing as ever on a journey of new and exciting discoveries, SOMM now brings to the catalogue of recorded music two justly admired Piano Concertos by South American and Spanish composers. The first is by Francisco Mignone, one of the finest Brazilian composers of the 20th century. His Piano Concerto from 1958 is brilliant, full of originality and technically challenging both for orchestra and pianist. It clearly merits wide circulation and Brazilian pianist Clélia Iruzun with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of Jac van Steen, clearly relishes the challenge, both technical and interpretative.

Tatum Titan È la donna più ricca del mondo, la più potente e, oltretutto, la più bella. Ci vuole molto per far colpo su un uomo come me, e inizialmente, Titan non mi aveva impressionato. In realtà, avevo notato una delle sue aziende in perdita molto prima di notare lei. Una casa editrice. Ma lei non vuole vendere. Anzi, rifiuta anche solo di ascoltare la mia offerta. La mia assistente tenta per tre volte di prendere appuntamento, e Titan risponde sempre di no. Rifiuta me, Diesel Hunt. L’uomo più potente del mondo. Non ero abituato a sentirmi dire di no. Non ero abituato ad avere una rivale con la mia stessa sicurezza, con la mia stessa intelligenza. Non ero abituato a veder prendere il controllo della situazione da qualcun altro. Ero sempre stato io ad avere il controllo. Più lei è fredda, più mi sento attratto..
