Another winner coming soon from Ace Records – The Other Side Of The Trax: Stax-Volt 45rpm Rarities 1964-1968 which is via the Stax label.

Here is the headline: 24 Stax singles from the ‘Blue’ era that have never been on CD before. In fact, most haven’t been available on vinyl since their original releases in the mid-1960s.

Almost all of the tracks are taken from Stax’ original production masters, with the exception of Johnnie Taylor’s popular northern soul tune ‘Changes’, which appears for both the first time on CD and in stereo.

Tracks all listed below, with the release date down for 29th January 2016. £13.99 is the retail price of this one. Oh yes, the usual Ace packaging too, which includes a label scan of every featured 45 and plenty of background.
