Melba MooreWhat A Woman Needs ... LP
EMI, 1981. Near Mint- ... $4.99
An early 80s set from Melba Moore – with some bubbling club soul grooves carried over from the 70s, plus spacier and funkier touches – largely produced by McFadden & Whitehead and featuring Kashif on moog bass! Given the production style here and the release date, we get the feeling that Melba & co. were resisting the prominent drum machine sound and otherwise more programmed backdrops that were taking hold in chart soul at the time, and even if she'd succeed with the more pronounced 80s vibe just a little later on, this record still feels plenty modern to our ears. A slept on gem! Includes "Let's Stand Together", "Your Sweet Lovin'", "What A Woman Needs", "Take My Love", "Overnight Sensation", "Each Second", "Piece Of The Rock", "Let's Go Back To Lovin" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch and a small tear on the opening.)

Labi SiffreRemember My Song ... LP
EMI/Mr Bongo (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Easily the best-remembered album by Labi Siffre – thanks to some well-used sample tracks over the years! But over and above the fame of the funky tunes "The Vulture" and "I Got The", the record's a key part of Siffre's 70s catalog – a record that's as great for its complex songwriting and deeply personal lyrics as it is for its Fender Rhodes lines, and tight musical backings from the combo of Big Jim Sullivan. All titles here are originals, and even when the groove slows down there's a depth that clearly marks Labi as one of the best singer/songwriters of the 70s – a talent who's been finally rediscovered in recent years, although sometimes only remembered for a few jazzy hooks from these tunes, and not the strength of the whole magilla! Here's your chance to dip into the Siffre sound at its fullest – on tracks that include "The Vulture", "I Got The", "Another Year", "Down", "Old Time Song", "Sadie & The Devil", "Remember My Song", and "Turn On Your Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice heavy-cover vinyl reissue!)

New Brass ConstructionConversations ... LP
Capitol/EMI, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lesser-remembered gem from Brass Construction – and a tight bit of 80s groove that builds nicely on the group's ensemble funk work of the 70s! The group's still quite large, with a brassy finish that befits their name – but there's also a nice undercurrent of funky guitar, bass, and keyboards – riffing in a mode that has some nice jazzy licks from time to time, and fits well with some of the sweeter vocals on the set. Titles include "Easy", "Physical Attraction", "I Do Love You", "No Communication", and "We Can Work It Out". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole.)

New Smiley LewisI Hear You Knocking (80s pressing) ... LP
Imperial/EMI, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic New Orleans soul from Smiley Lewis – an artist who's best known for his classic "I Hear You Knocking", but who has a lot more great tracks under his belt! This album's one of the rare full albums that was ever cut by him – as like most of his contemporaries in the R&B world, Smiley cut mostly singles instead of albums. Titles include "Bumpity Bump", "Bells Are Ringing", "Blue Monday", "Lost Weekend", "Real Gone Lover", and "One Night". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s pressing.)

New Wilson PickettI Want You ... LP
EMI, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Later work from soul pioneer Wilson Pickett – working at EMI here, and in an updated style – on a record that would be better remembered, if not for the trailblazing importance of Pickett's earlier career. Having previously helped define raw southern soul and deliver it to the masses, it's easy to see why later, less revolutionary recordings in an more modern/contemporary vein would fail to catch the zeitgeist. But the grit and emotional intensity that Wilson delivers over some straighter, laidback 70s soul arrangements is still pretty special! Produced by Andre Perry – with cuts that include "I Want You", "Love Of My Life", "Shameless", "Live With Me", "Groove City", "Superstar", and "Granny". LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousFrom Route 66 to the Flamingo ... LP
Stateside/EMI (UK), Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Smokin soul and instrumental tunes from the 60s – including many hard grooving New York jukebox hits! The compilation's issued by EMI – and the cuts are from 60s labels like Sue, Capitol, United Artists, and Blue Note, with a focus on the kind of storming tunes that would be big on a British northern soul dancefloor. There's a whopping 24 cuts in all – and the quality is excellent. Titles include "Loop De Loop" by The Soul Sisters, "So Far Away" by Hank Jacobs, "Sticks" by Cannonball Adderley, "Hey Girl" by Freddie Scott, "Lipstick Traces" by Benny Spellman, "Googa Mooga" by Freddie Roach, "Don't Put Me Down Like This" by Derek Martin, "You Can't Sit Down" by Phil Upchurch, and "She Put The Hurt On Me" by Prince La La.

New Stevie WonderLight My Fire ... LP
EMI/Motown (UK), Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Even though Stevie's wearing some very groovy 70s garb on the cover of this compilation that was issued in the 70s, the material here is collected from his earlier years at Motown. There's some of the hits that put him on the map and a number of covers, including "I Was Made To Love Her", "Send Me Some Lovin", "My Girl", "Can I Get A Witness", "Sunny", "God Bless The child" and "Please, Please, Please". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and a peeled spot on back.)
