Severin BrowneNew Improved Severin Browne ... LP
Motown, 1974. Very Good ... $3.99
A lot more folksy than any other work on Motown from the 70s – and proof that the label was getting more and more influenced by their new LA setting – but a nice sampling of mellow tracks, with a definite Free Soul bent. In a way, Brown's style is similar to that of Jose Feliciano in the 70s – with warm electric production backing up mellow pop/rock lyrics and acoustic guitar. Titles include "Love Song", "Do Magnolia Do", "Love Notes From Denver", "Cooking School", and "More Dreams In The Sea". LP, Vinyl record album

Severin BrowneSeverin Browne ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
A great easy groover from early 70s Motown! Severin Browne's the brother of Jackson Browne – and as such, is more of a mellow rock artist than a soul artist – but this album's got a sweet soul vibe in the mix, and is a surprisingly nice release from Motown's early LA years! In a way, you can hear a James Taylor-ish influence in Browne's vocalizing and guitar work, but the backing behind him is more in the smooth LA studio style – a bit like that used on the 70s work of Jose Feliciano or Nick DeCaro. The songs are surprisingly wonderfully crafted – and to discover Browne's work is to tap into the lost career of a under-recognized 70s singer/songwriter. Titles include "Darling Christina", "Snowflakes", "Sister", "Not Quite Time", "Skip Tune", and "Just A Matter Of Time". CD

New David JohansenIn Style ... LP
Blue Sky, 1979. Very Good+ ... $1.99
David Johansen's second post-New York Dolls solo record – and the first one where he really sheds the feral rock vibe – but with Mick Ronson on board as co-producer, it's still got plenty of pomp! David would go on to take many creative detours – but in this first real stretch, he's bringing in some Motown influences – with some R&B backing vocals here and there, along with ome sax, piano and other smoothed out touches. That said, it's not that huge of a jump – with some ruggedness and grit reminiscent of his earlier work –and it's got a bunch of really good songs. Titles include "Melody", "She", "Big City", "She Knew She Was Falling In Love", "Swaheto Woman", "Wreckless Crazy", "Flamingo Road" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
