DeRobert & The Half-TruthsI'm Tryin' ... LP
GED Soul, 2013. New Copy ... $12.99
The greatest work we've heard so far from DeRobert Adams and the Half-Truths – a record that really pushes the singer into classic soul territory! DeRobert has always had a vintage approach to his music – but this full set plumbs a depth we never would have expected at the start – an extremely rich sense of delivery that's rooted in gospel, linked together with a range of southern soul and funk modes that really belie the Tennessee roots of the group, plus contemporary touches that really get past some of the more stock modes of the deep funk underground! All tracks are originals, but they're so good you'd swear you know them from older records – and by that, we don't mean that they're copies or cliches – just the kind of work that's so good, you're surprised you're hearing it for the first time. And if the strength of the record is any indication of justice in the mainstream, you'll be hearing lots more from the group in the near future – as this sweet set sounds like the start of a great career. Titles include "My Momma Told Me", "Goin Places", "Write A Letter", "Do It Alone", "I Don't Get Mad No Mo", "The Speech", "The Dole (part 2)", and "Ooo Wee". LP, Vinyl record album

Watch OutGeneral Richardson ... CD
Monde Green (Spain), 2011. Used ... $2.99
Heavy congas, hard-hitting horns, and tight soulful vocals – an excellent debut set from Watch Out – one of the funkiest European combos we've heard in years! The group have a natural, organic feel that's very nice – a way of serving up the kind of full funky sound that you'd hear from the 70s mainstream in the US, but with an energy that's much more fitting to a more obscure, funky 45 sort of outfit! This blend of modes comes from some especially thoughtful production – a way of recording the record that sets the group apart from both the frequent American and British funky albums of this nature – and even from some of their Spanish contemporaries as well. Instrumentation is always tight, and the rhythms are almost always at the head of the pack – kicking things off with a groove first, then letting the vocals and melodic moments follow along in the mix. Titles include "Black Cat", "Tap The Time", "Tasting", "K Cheese", "Check 5", "Everybody's Getting Down", and "Tea Pot". CD
