(Treasure Trove of unsung legends - and some household names)

Finishing out this week of Sue Records classics, a single by Bonnie Rice which doesn't appear on the 45 discography but is a great track anyway (any information would be greatly appreciated - G.S.). I've Had It comes from the 1964 period, considered by many collectors to be the twilight of the golden era for the label. Sue Records would still have hits, though not to the extent they had in the 1950's and early 60s before Juggy Murray sold the label to United Artists (EMI). A box set compilation came out in the 1990's which is sadly out of print today, but Ace Records in the UK have been reissuing a lot of Sue Records material, including all the great early Ike & Tina Turner tracks they did for the label in the late 50s and early 60s. A great label with some great artists that keeps getting discovered and rediscovered.

Further evidence great music never dies - it just gets misplaced.
