Three Rooms / Welcome to Dreamsville

A 2 track soul single (4m 42s) — released April 2nd 2012 on Soul7

The mighty Musicor label was formed in 1960 by Aaron Schroeder, an accomplished songwriter who had worked as a staff songwriter for Hill and Range, where he had penned several huge hits for Elvis Presley. Shroeder reportedly owned half of the record label, with United Artists owning the other half. Now known to many for its larger names such as Gene Pitney or perhaps SOUL for its legendary "Burning Spear" funk anthem, the label is awash with obscure and wonderful soul, latin and popcorn recordings. Two of these grade A obscurities are presented here.

The Audrey Freeman is a Radcliffe/Halley-produced mid-tempo banger! Perfect for northern or popcorn dance-floors it has remained under the radar due to its rarity. "Three Rooms" was also covered by H.B. Barnum as "Three Room Flat" on Imperial records later in 1964 as well as Cliff Benett & The Rebel Rousers in 1965.

Staying firmly in the mid '60s we then have the mighty Sammy Ambrose - "Welcome to Dreamsvillle" - a northern soul anthem that's straight out a David Lynch soundtrack. This 45 was actually issued in the UK in the late 60s on Stateside but even this issue would set you back £200+ such is the demand.
