Tammi Terrell – “Irresistible” – (Limited 180 Gr. Yellow Colored Vinyl)
The ﬁrst and only solo album by Tammi Terrell, released before her premature death at the age of 24. Known for her popular duets with Marvin Gaye, Terrell scored seven Top 40 singles on the Billboard Hot 100, including the legendary Ashford & Simpson 1966 song “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”. The Irresistible Tammi Terrell is one of the greatest and most undervalued Motown albums from the 1960s. Tammi sings lead vocals accompanied by The Andantes and The Spinners, with The Funk Brothers providing the instrumental background. Included are her hits “Come On and See Me” and “I Can’t Believe You Love Me,” as well as two tracks that were later dubbed by Marvin Gaye in order to create vocal duets.
Barry McGuire – Eve of Destruction – (180 Gr. HQ Limited edition)
Includes the iconic protest song and title-track, which hit #1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in September 1965. “Eve of Destruction” was recorded by McGuire with the original composer P. F. Sloan on guitar, Phil Spector’s Wrecking Crew members Hal Blaine (who played with Frank Sinatra and The Beach Boys, among many others) on drums, and Larry Knechtel (who played with The Doors and Simon & Garfunkel, among many others) on bass.
