Dee Mullins kicked around Texan independent labels such as Pappy Daily's D Records before Shelby Singleton signed him to his Nashville independent SSS – later Plantation Records – in 1967, having Mullins sing the answer song "The Continuing Story of Harper Valley P.T.A." to the label's first big hit from Jeannie C. Riley. "The Continuing Story" provides the title for this 2009 compilation from Omni Records, a compilation that rounds up a generous 27 tracks that stretch all the way from 1959 to 1978, but focus on those hippie-era oddities from SSS and Plantation, pushing all 16 of those cuts toward the front. If any country music could be called psychedelic, this is it: Singleton surrounded Mullins with vocal effects, sitars, and fuzz guitars, creating genuinely odd music ranging from the eerie and unsettling ("I Am the Grass") to the absurd ("Beers").
This 18-track compilation includes everything from Kiki Dee's early-'70s Motown album Great Expectations, as well as two additional tracks from her time with the label that surfaced on the rare budget Kiki Dee album in the mid-'70s, along with four previously unreleased 1969-1970 outtakes. While it's good to have this fairly rare material thoughtfully combined into one package, it reinforces the sense that neither Motown nor Dee realized the potential from their unusual association.
