Alabama's CLARENCE CARTER has had his Atlantic Records catalogue reissued a number of times before in both the UK and the USA by good labels like Rhino, Sequel and Collectables. I've even got Japanese Atlantic versions from two years back with great sound and a reasonable price. I had "The Dynamic Clarence Carter" LP in 1969 and considered it to be my most vibrant-sounding stereo album. It is not terribly surprising that in Kent Soul's expert hands that same quality (to the extent possible) is retained on CD. With that said about the fabulous sound mastering on these two superb LP releases, one should be warned that the five previously unreleased bonus tracks are demos going back to '66-67 - so expect demo-quality sound (so different from everything that comes before on this disc).
