Early-’60s rock and blues records didn’t come any smoother than Lee Dorsey’s ”Ya Ya” or any rawer than Elmore James’ ”Shake Your Moneymaker.” These classics and more can be found on The Fire/Fury Redcords Story, a raucous two-CD retrospective of the Fire and Fury labels run by Bobby Robinson out of his Harlem record store. Robinson didn’t just know how to pick ‘em (Wilbert Harrison’s ”Kansas City,” Gladys Knight’s ”Every Beat of My Heart”), he knew how to make great records with ‘em, too. B+
