Vinyl LP pressing. UK collection. Kent's New Breed R&B series of CDs has been running for seventeen years so they thought such a venerable product deserved a fitting vinyl offering. The selection reflects the acceptance of differing R&B styles among it's followers; there is a broad ten-year time span between releases. Monster or mammoth tracks include Mike Pedicin's 'Burnt Toast And Black Coffee', Luther Ingram's 'Oh Baby Don't You Weep', Gladys Bruce's 'I've Got a Feeling For You Baby' and the Charmaines' 'I Idolize You'. The BB King, Bobby Mitchell, Johnny Guitar Watson and Albert Washington tracks are all now looked on as New Breed classics guaranteed dance action when the needle hits. Two more Kent exclusives came out in 2008; Gladys Bruce's 'I've Got A Feeling For You Baby' and Barbara Perry's 'A Man Is A Mean Thing' both livened up the burgeoning New Breed scene.
