Rarer Stamps draws its inspiration from the album Rare Stamps issued by Volt Reoords a Stax subsidiary in 1969. The original LP was the inspiration of Al Bell and was one of 3 Rare Stamps collections each featuring archive material from Eddie Floyd, Johnnie Taylor and splitting the 3rd package between JJ Barnes and Steve Mancha. The Barnes/Mancha pairing went on to become an iconic album, an essential part of any respectable soul collection.

Here we bring together two of Detroit’s finest, the mighty Barrett Strong and the much overlooked Gino Parks. Each side spotlights the best of their hot R&B action plus a super rare 45: in the case of Barrett Strong we include his first and rarest Tamla recording “Let’s Rock”; and from Gino we feature the incredibly obscure Detroit doo-wop cut “Last Night I Cried”.
