South, Joe - Introspect Introspect
Pop New - LP ST 108 Capitol
Sealed 1968 Stereo Original, Two Small Cut-Out Holes. Joe South's Debut LP Was Deleted Almost Too Quickly For Most Listeners To Find It, Much Less Hear It. Now Regarded As A Country-Soul Classic (And, Perhaps, The First Country-Soul Album), Introspect Anticipated The Sound That Elvis Presley And Tony Joe White Would Both Bring To The Fore In The Following Year, Except That It Was Even More Ambitious Than Presley Or White, Mixing And Bending Genres In New And Exciting Ways. Country, Eastern Raga, Gutbucket Soul, And Pop All Brush Up Against Each Other Within The Same Songs, Some Of Which Sound Like Elvis Singing With A Backing Band That Included James Burton And Ravi Shankar. And Thanks To South's Use Of Various Electronic Devices In Association With The Considerable Virtuosity In The Playing, And His Exceptional Singing, This Is Still A Bracing Album Four Decades Later.... more details

South, Joe - Don't It Make You Want To Go Home? Don't It Make You Want To Go Home?
Pop Used - LP ST 392 Capitol
1968 Green Label With Purple Logo Stereo Original. Appears Unplayed. “Joe South's Second Proper Album Was Perhaps Just A Tad Less Impressive Than The More Well-Known Introspect, If Only Because That Earlier LP Had Included "Games People Play," "Rose Garden," And Some Other Songs That Would Be Among The Singer/Songwriter's Most Enduring. Don't It Make You Want To Go Home? Is A Worthy Follow-Up, However, That Also Adeptly Combines Rootsy Rock, Pop, Country, Soul, Gospel, And Psychedelia Into South's Thoughtful Songs, Which Ooze Both Interior Reflection And Empathetic Concern For The World At Large. The Soulful, Cheering "Walk A Mile In My Shoes" Was The Album's Hit Single, But There Are Other Songs Here Of Similar Quality, Like The Bittersweet "Clock Up On The Wall," The Straight-Ahead Soul Love Song "Shelter," And "Be A Believer," Which Has The Anthemic Exhortatory Chin-Up Feel Typical Of Much Of South's Work Of The Period. It's Definitely An Album Of Its Time, As The Occasional Segues Between Tracks And Trippy Studio Effects Make Clear. Indeed, There's One Downright Experimental Track, "A Million Miles Away," A Nearly Instrumental Gutbucket Psychedelic Blues Groove Under Which Some Radio-Like Voices Can Just About Be Detected. Somehow The Trendy Accoutrements Fit The Mood Fairly Well Instead Of Sounding Like Jarring Misfires, Though They Might Have Ensured That South Remained A Little Bit Too Idiosyncratic To Maintain His Short-Lived Commercial Success.” - Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide... more details

South, Joe - Games People Play Games People Play
Pop New - LP ST 235 Capitol
Sealed 1969 Stereo Original. “To Some Degree, Games People Play Was A Rushed Album, Issued To Capitalize On The Unexpected Hit Single Title Track (Which Had First Been Issued As An LP-Only Cut On South's Previous Long-Player, Introspect). Three Songs That Had Appeared On Introspect ("Games People Play," "Birds Of A Feather," And "These Are Not My People") Were Placed On Games People Play As Well, And Some Of The Other Songs (Like "Untie Me" And "Concrete Jungle") Had Been Recorded By Other Artists As Early As 1962. For All That, However, It Was A Pretty Cracking Good Set Of Country-Soul-Rock, And If It Was Hastily Thrown Together, It Certainly Didn't Show In The Songwriting, Production, Or Performances. South's Sage, Humanistic, And Somewhat Outside-Looking-In View Of The Madding Crowd Came Through Forcefully In "Party People," "These Are Not My People," And "Birds Of A Feather." Wholehearted Romantic Lust And Confusion Laced His Energetic Recastings Of "Untie Me" (First A Hit For The Tymes Back In 1963) And "Hush" (Which Had Just Been A Smash For Deep Purple), As Well As The Respectable Elvis Presley-Meets-Neil Diamond-Styled "Heart's Desire," Which Had The Catchiness Of A Hit Single. The Dabs Of Psychedelia Throughout The Record — Some Electric Guitar Here, Some Weird Echo There (Both At Once On "Hole In Your Soul," The Most Avowedly Strange Track) — Might Have Been Trendy, But Were Nonetheless Effective. Quite A Lot Of Fine Music Not Found On Best-Of Compilations Awaits South Fans Who Have Yet To Discover This Record.” - Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide... more details
