New FreedomFarther Than Imagination (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Malaco/Clinck (Japan), 1978. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
An amazing, unjustly obscure bit of southern funky soul – played with kind of a club oriented groove, and a strong nod towards middle-period Earth, Wind, & Fire – a far different vibe than a lot of the southern soul on the Malaco label! The band has some nice harmony vocals over a jazzy bass-heavy style – and the record mixes uptempo funky tracks with smoother mellower ones. Includes the dancefloor cuts "Dance Sing Along" and "Get Up And Dance" – plus great mellow numbers like "Summer Memory" and "Wake Up Your Mind". Other titles include "Farther Than Imagination", "Know You Better" and "You've Just Got To Be The One". This CD version is loaded with bonus tracks – including the extended 12" mixes of "Dance Sing Along" and "Get Up And Dance" – plus rare singles "The Funktionary", "Come On And Dance", "At The Party", "Whodat" and "All For You".

Ralph Soul JacksonAlabama Love Man ... LP
Rabbit Factory, 2012. New Copy .... $9.99
The return of a legend – or maybe more accurately, the first time this legend's ever really gotten his due! Ralph Jackson's been working in the Alabama soul underground for decades – yet this smoking album may well be the first time he's ever really gotten out front, and able to do his thing – working with a tight group of younger musicians who really respect the southern soul vibe that Ralph's going for – and help him hit a really great sound in the process! The set's a soul record through and through – not one of these modern funk workouts with an old singer thrown into the mix – but the kind of old school album you'd hear from Malaco or Criteria Studios – particularly during that point when deep soul was growing up in the 70s. Production and arrangements are right on the money – and all tunes are written by Jackson, save for one totally great cover of The Ides Of March classic "Vehicle"! Other titles include "You've Been Very Good To Me", "Searching", "For Just One Second", "I Can't Leave Your Love Alone", "I'll Take Care Of You", and "There Must Be A Reason". LP, Vinyl record album

Syl JohnsonSyl Johnson With Melody Whittle ... CD
Twinight, 2013. New Copy .... $8.99 9.99
Syl Johnson, back in action and sounding great – and working here with key help from the younger generation too! As the title indicates, Johnson's singing here with up-and-coming vocalist Melody Whittle – a contemporary artist, but one with deep soul touches that work perfectly with Syl's classic approach – all wrapped up here with a style that's partly old school, and partly that modern evolution of the southern soul style you might find on a label like Malaco – further proof that Johnson just keeps on growing after all these years! Daughter Syleena makes an appearance on the set, and shades things in with some of her own flavors too – and titles include a few remakes of old tracks too. Tracks include "Mr Invisible", "I'm With You Too", "Turn Back The Hands Of Time", "Is It Because I'm Black 2006", "Ms Fine Brown Frame", "Loving On The Run", "Baby I'm Scared Of You", "Goodie Goodie Good Times", "Mellow Down Easy", "I'm Just A Freak For You", and "Just Make Love To You".

King FloydI Feel Like Dynamite – The Early Chimneyville Singles & More 1970 to 1974 ... CD
Chimneyville/Kent (UK), Early 70s. New Copy .... $14.99
A dynamite collection of southern soul singer King Floyd's early-to-mid 70s recordings for Chimneyville – and a badly needed one, too – shining a light on so many funk-steeped southern soul treasures! King Floyd is one of those great musical figures whose name isn't nearly as famous as his most popular song – which in his case, is the all time classic "Groove Me" – but the thing is, most of the contemporaneous cuts are just as amazing as that one! "Groove Me" appears early in this set, and a good deal of the tunes have a similar edge, balancing gritty backdrops with some sweeter moments where strings stand out a bit more. Recorded at Malaco with arrangements by Wardell Quezergue – with "What Our Love Needs", "Groove Me", "Baby Let Me Kiss You", "Let Us Be", "It's Wonderful", "Woman Don't Go Astray", "Here It Is", "Messin' Up My Mind", "Do Your Feeling", "Thank You", "I Feel Like Dynamite", "Handle With Care" and many more. 24 tracks in all!

King FloydKing Floyd ... CD
Cotillion (Japan), 1971. New Copy .... $13.99
One of the best-remembered moments from the mighty King Floyd – a southern soul singer who came into the game slightly later than some of his Atlantic Records contemporaries, but who still packs a punch that's right up there with the best of them! The album's best known for the huge hit "Groove Me" – a slinky, catchy tune that's gotten King plenty of play over the years – but the whole thing is pretty darn great, and shows a new sound and style of southern soul coming into play – as Floyd's working in Jackson, at the Malaco Studios, with Wardell Quezergue producing – in a sound that's a bit free of some of the more obvious Memphis and Muscle Shoals modes, yet without any of the cliches that would later hold some folks back too. King balances things perfectly throughout – and in addition to "Groove Me", the set also features "Let Us Be", "Messing Up My Mind", "What Our Love Needs", and "Don't Leave Me Lonely". CD

McKinley MitchellMcKinley Mitchell ... LP
Chimneyville, 1978. Very Good+ .... $0.99
Jackson soul from McKinley Mitchell – more polished than his earlier work, but still with that Chimneyville/Malaco late 70s southern style that was the best heir to 60s work in Memphis and Muscle Shoals. Tracks include "Open House At My House", "You're So Fine", "The Town I Live In", "You Know I've Tried", "Run To Love", "Dream Lover", "End Of The Rainbow", and "Follow The Wind".

Natural HighNatural High 1 (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Chimneyville/Clinck (Japan), 1979. New Copy .... $22.99
An obscure little modern soul groover – with a jazzy funk touch that you wouldn't expect from a record cut at Malaco Studios and released on the southern soul heavy Chimneyville imprint – usually home to much rootsier material! The group's got a soaring groove – with a lot of uptempo moments and few mellower ones – always exuberant, and filled with a sense of joy and power that really comes through right away! The groove is upbeat, and has the same sense of positive energy you'll find in the lyrics and tight instrumentation – and titles include "Dance To The Funk", "Come & Go Away With Me", "You Make Me So Happy", "Reachin Out", "Time Is Wasting", "Don't Be Lonely", and "Trust In Me". CD features 4 bonus tracks – "Flying Too High", "I Don't Love Nobody But You", "The Whole World Is Dancin'" and "That's Why". CD

Peggy ScottShe's Got It All – Rare 70s Soul ... CD
Shout (UK), Late 70s. New Copy .... $6.99
Obscure 70s work from southern soul vocalist Peggy Scott – recorded during some lesser-known years in her career! Peggy's probably best known for her work with Jo Jo Benson on SSS International in the late 60s – and for her recent fame as Peggy Scott-Adams – but here, she's heard on a selection of late 70s sides recorded at Malaco Records, all of which update her older style with a slightly more contemporary vibe! The sessions were produced by Bob McRee, and although a few tracks were issued previously as singles in Europe, this CD presents them as an album for the first time ever – showing a Scott who's much more mature than her early duet soul years, and working in a mix of modes that includes a number of tracks aimed at the dancefloor – a bit like some of her contemporaries at TK Records during the same time. McRee's production is smooth, but never dominates the vocals – and the clubbier tracks still come off nicely thanks to Peggy's handling of the lyrics – in a way that reminds us of some of the deeper soul disco on Prelude. Titles include "Make It Soon", "Let Me Untie You", "Make Me Loose", "You've Got It All", "Your Loving Is Tasty", "Came Down Hard On Me Baby", "Start My Motor", and "Firepower". CD

Soul ChildrenThere Always (Finders Keepers/Where Is Your Woman Tonight) ... CD
Epic/Shout (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy .... $6.99
The post-Stax, Epic southern soul of the Soul Children – 1976's Finders Keepers and 1977's Where Is Your Woman Tonight back-to-back! Finders Keepers is a strong little album by the group – recorded with a very different sound than the Stax work – but one that's still totally great overall! The grooves are a bit warmer and more modern soul styled – uptempo at times, but never in a throwaway club mode – and in a way, the shift is a bit similar to that taken by The Dramatics at the same point. There's still plenty of nicely rough edges in the vocals – that raspy sense of soul that first made us fall in love with the group – and by this point, the lineup has been reduced to a trio, with more of a focus on male vocals than before. The session's filled with work by great Detroit talents who include Don Davis, Steve Mancha, and Harvey Scales – and tracks include "Finders Keepers", "A Little Understanding", "We Got To Get Our Thing Together", and "I'm Just A Shoulder To Cry On". Where Is Your Woman Tonight is another Epic gem with the group going for a smoother soul sound. Some tracks are a little uptempo, in hopes of a crossover hit – but mostly, just a a solid effort with the group continuing to grow from a raw soul group into a smoother one. This session features production by David Porter at Malaco studios, with the kind of mellow slightly funky vibe that the studio was perfect at for a few years. Titles include "Take Me Make Me", "Head On Collision", "Where Is Your Woman Tonight", "There Always", and "You Don't Need A Ring". CD

New Irma ThomasFull Time Woman – The Lost Cotillion Album ... CD
Cotillion/Real Gone, 1972. New Copy .... $15.99
A full album's worth of material from the legendary Irma Thomas – most of it never heard before! Irma got her start as one of the most important female soul singers from New Orleans in the 60s – but the music here was all recorded for Atlantic Records at the start of the 70s – at a time when Irma was really ready to explore new ideas and stretch out creatively! All the depth of her older vocals is very much in place – and the collection features this really surprising range of settings for Thomas to groove on – dates recorded in Detroit, Philly, Miami, and at the Malaco studios in Jackson – each of which showcase another side of the singer, and almost act like a roadmap for the directions of soul music at the start of the 70s. Two tracks here were issued on a single – "Full Time Woman" and "She's Taken My Part" – but it's all the other unreleased tracks we really love, especially some of the more urban-styled material that makes a nice change from more southern soul modes we usually hear from Irma. Titles include "Try To Be Thankful", "Shadow Of The Sun", "Waiting For Someone", "Our Love Don't Come That Easy", "Time After Time", "Tell ME Again", "Could It Be Differently", "A Song For No Name", and "Adam & Eve".

Wilson WilliamsEating Ain't Cheating ... CD
SDEG, 2007. Used .... $0.99
Contemporary blues work from Wilson Williams – produced, backed, and co-written by Jerry "Swamp Dogg" Williams – who we've got to assume must have some sort of family connection! The style's a fair bit like some of Swamp's recent work – a mix of southern soul and contemporary chitlin circuit bluesy modes – backed with small combo instrumentation on most numbers, and with a relaxed, easygoing feel that reminds us of recent work from the Malaco scene. Titles include "You're Never Around When I Need You", "Big House", "Nobody But Me", "One Man's Leftovers Is Another Man's Feast", "Eating Ain't Cheating", "Real Confessions 2", and "My Woman Got A Case Worker".

New ZZ HillAm I Groovin' You? – Great R&B Hits ... CD
United Artists/Micro Werks, Early 70s. Used .... Just Sold Out!
The title's a bit misleading – as the set's not exactly the stuff of hits – but it is a wicked collection of material that ZZ Hill recorded for United Artists Records in the early 70s – sublime southern soul, finally getting its due in this reissue package! Hill's style here owes a lot to some of the Memphis singers of the 60s – especially Otis Redding and Bobby Blue Bland, both of whom would be welcome references here – although ZZ's also stepping out strongly with his own bad self as well – putting in a bit more punch, and hipping things up for a 70s market that had southern soul audiences stretching way up north and out west too. There's also none of the blues modes that Hill adopted in later years – which is great if you've only heard his Malaco dates – and titles include "Bad Mouth & Gossip", "I Created A Monster", "I Don't Need Half A Love", "Ain't Nothing You Can Do", "Am I Groovin You", "Look What You've Done", "That Ain't The Way You Make Love", "Snap Your Fingers", "Can I Get A Witness", and "Dream Don't Let Me Down".

New John EdwardsLife, Love, & Living ... CD
Cotillion (Japan), 1976. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A stellar solo set from John Edwards – one of the tightest talents of the southern scene in the mid 70s, and a singer who would later break big with The Spinners! This album's got a really unique vibe – with some slight tropical touches hinted at by the cover image – and some deeper production from David Porter down at the Malaco and Ardent Studios – which ensures that the deep soul component of the music still stays strong! The whole thing's unlike anything else we can think of – and is a definite bridge between 70s soul scenes at the time – echoes of folks like Al Green or Sam Dees, but a tighter approach at points too. Titles include "You, Trouble, & Me", "That's That", "The Key To My Life", and "Baby, Hold On To Me". CD
