The spotlight turns on the Spring label for the latest in our series of limited edition EPs from iconic US soul imprints. Spring ran from 1967 to the mid-80s and was highly successful. We have included megastar Millie Jackson, revisiting her second LP for the bouncy and irresistible 'Close My Eyes'; a swinging, uptempo number that will now get it's deserved dancehall spins on a DJ-friendly 7-inch. Millie had around 20 albums on the label while the Ray Godfrey-produced group Act I managed just the one. What a terrific LP it was, though, and again we are liberating one of it's highlights, 'It's The Same Old Story', on a conveniently sized disc for 45 collectors and top soul spinners to enjoy again. For soul fans, Garland Green's emotive vocals are up there with the best and his Spring sessions with Brad Shapiro in 1973 produced the superb ballad 'Just What The Doctor Ordered', which until now has only featured on a 1990 Kent vinyl LP. Winfield Parker is another for the connoisseurs. 'Starvin' was the follow-up to his only hit, a 1971 remake of 'S. O. S. Stop Her On Sight'. Although musically it's equal yet way more progressive, it was to be his final 45 on the illustrious label
