• Garnet MIMMS - The Early Years Featuring The Gainors – The Complete Recordings 1958-1961

The recordings of Garnet Mimms between 1963 and 1966 are rightly acknowledged as some of the most incredible early soul music ever made, and with Garnet's earliest work being off the market for a few years it seemed only right to revisit it. So here it is; 22 tracks he recorded as lead singer of his 'doowop-ish' vocal group, The Gainors.

Although originally available on obscure singles during the late '50s much of this material was not released on LP until after his US pop chart success in 1963. This is (we think) the first time these 22 tracks have appeared in one package.

Detailed liner notes covering Garnet's career.
