180g Audiophile Vinyl! Mastered by Friday Music's Joe Reagoso from Original Atlantic Records Tapes!

Clarence Carter will be forever known as one of the original classic soul pioneers like Ray Charles, Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett who had a knack of mastering funk grooves drenched in gospel, soul, rock and pop. Along with Fame Studio legendary producer Rick Hall, Clarence Carter created some of the greatest sides ever for Atlantic.

In 1971, Clarence was honored with his first greatest hits collection by Atlantic simply titled The Best Of Clarence Carter. This stunning array of his top charters includes Patches, Slip Away and Snatchin’ It Back and other smash hit singles, like Too Weak to Fight and I Can’t Leave Your Love Alone. Most of them feature the legendary musicianship of folks like Duane Allman, Spooner Oldham and Barry Beckett. This top charting collection hasn’t been available on vinyl for many decades...that is until now!

Friday Music is very proud to announce for the first time ever the stunning 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of The Best Of Clarence Carter. Mastered from the original Atlantic Records tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Mastering in Hollywood, these classic tracks truly reach sonic heights in the audiophile vinyl domain. Friday Music has also included the original artwork elements by Haig Adishian and the classic photos by Rayburn Sparks, not seen in LP cover form in years!

The soul lives on here at the Friday Music label, and as with their recent original pioneering soul albums from Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Solomon Burke, Wilson Pickett and others, they feel this stunning Clarence Carter 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl will be a much anticipated and welcomed release to all the soul, funk and rock audiophile vinyl fans.
