Beady BelleCricklewood Broadway ... CD
Jazzland (Norway), 2013. New Copy .... $18.99
Stunning sounds from Beady Belle – one of the greatest albums we've heard from the group in years – and that's saying a heck of a lot! Beady Belle are as soulful as ever, but also have a new sort of crackle too – a bit more clavinet mixed in with their Fender Rhodes, and this cool moogy way of laying down a groove that at times is almost a 21st Century version of Shuggie Otis during his Inspiration Information years! The lovely vocals of Beate Lech still keep a great degree of humanity in the music – with these beautifully personal lyrics that have always made the group one of the warmest of all their contemporaries on the Scandia scene – sung this time with a maturity that could well get these guys the much-needed audience they've always deserved on this side of the Atlantic. A gem through and through – with titles that include "Saved", "Party Pooper", "Song For Irie", "Faith", "Circlet", "So Far So Good", "My Name On The World", and "Poppy Burt-Jones". CD

Brand New HeaviesGet Used To It ... CD
Delicious Vinyl, 2006. Used .... $4.99
N'Dea Davenport returns to the Brand New Heavies – and the result is one of the greatest records from the group in many many years! The sound's here is totally wonderful – a real return to the classic funk of the Brand New Heavies' roots – and having N'Dea back in the vocal chair, it's almost as if 15 years have fallen off the calendar – taking us back to a time when we had complete and total faith in the group! Production is wonderful too – spare, stripped down, and with the grittier, more soulful edges of the first few records. Drums are heavy, basslines are tight, and we're plenty proud to say that after many years, the Brand New Heavies are very firmly back in the business of funky music! Great stuff all around – no hype, no gimmicks, and a real back to basics set that's probably a decade overdue! Titles include "Sex God", "Let's Do It Again", "We Won't Stop", "Get Used To It", "We've Got", "I Don't Know Why", "Right On", "Music", "All Fired Up", "Love Is", "I've Been Touched", and "I Just Realized".

Roy Davis JrChicago Forever ... CD
Ubiquity, 2004. New Copy .... $5.99 16.98
An instant classic from Roy Davis Jr – and a record that really takes us back to the deepest days of the Chicago house scene! Roy's tunes are simple, effective, and straightforward – yet also have a cosmic burning soul that moves them past the coldness that could sometimes hold back work from Chicago. The beats are tight, but never overbearing; the keyboards are spacey, but never too noodly; and Roy's got some great vocal help on a few cuts from singers that include Terry Dexter, Khalid, and Ayro! As a side note, the album was actually recorded a year or two before release, but delayed due to personal issues in Roy's life – which further enforces the "lost classic" feel of the set, and makes us even happier to finally have it out. Titles include "My Soul Is Electric", "If You Wanna", "Strings & Things", "Wonderland", "Nu Roots", "Heavenly Father", and "U Give U Take". CD

Anthony HamiltonAin't Nobody Worryin' ... CD
So So Def/Arista, 2005. Used .... $4.99
The best album yet from Anthony Hamilton – one of major label soul's saving graces of the mid 00s – and one of the few cats out there making records that melds an organic groove with production that's crisp & poppin'! Anthony's songs dip into the time-honored soul style of songs about love and the heartbreaking loss of it – but there's an easygoing groove to the sound that transcends subject matter – and a consistency that eludes most of his contemporaries! Nice stuff from a major talent! Tracks include "Where Did It Go Wrong?", "Southern Stuff", "Can't Let Go", "Ain't Nobody Worryin'", "Pass Me Over", "Sista Big Bones", "Never Love Again", "I Know What Love's All About" and more. CD

JamiroquaiReturn Of The Space Cowboy (2CD 20th Anniversary edition) ... CD
Sony, 1994. New Copy 2CD .... $13.99
A killer of an album from Jamiroquai – the first time we really sat up and took notice, and said "hey, these guys are onto something good!" The record's pretty darn great all the way through – a warm batch of tunes that starts with a classic 70s mode that's part Stevie Wonder, part Steely Dan – and which runs through some of the more modern London percussion/production techniques to freshen things up! Titles include "Mr Moon", "Kids", "Manifest Destiny", "Light Years", "Stillness In Time", "Morning Glory", and "Space Cowboy". 2CD version features loads of bonus tracks too – including "Space Clav", "Stillness In Time (edit)", "Space Cowboy (David Morales mix)", "Light Years (4 to da floor mix)", "Space Cowboy (demo)", and liver versions of "Scam", "Journey To Arnhemland", "We Getting Down", and "Light Years".

New JamiroquaiSynkronized ... CD
Work/Sony, 1999. Used .... $3.99
Magical work from Jamiroquai – one of those groups that never fails to please our ears, no matter how globally overplayed they get in clothing stores! This one follows nicely on the style of Traveling Without Moving – very full-on in its production style, yet still oozing with the group's classic soul influenced mode. The ghosts of Steely Dan, Stevie Wonder, and Lennie Kravitz all populate the set – stepping along with other more obscure 70s influences, amidst a nice blend of keys, beats, guitars, and strings! Titles include "Destitute Illusions", "Canned Heat", "Planet Home", "King For A Day", "Supersonic", "Soul Education", and "Black Capricorn Day". CD

New Brand New HeaviesBrother Sister ... CD
Delicious Vinyl, 1994. Used .... Just Sold Out!
The group's second real album, and one that never manages to totally capture the groove of the first – but which still has some pretty great writing and playing that set it apart from most of the soul of its generation! The cut "Dream On Dreamer" is one of those early 90s groovers that we still delight in hearing on the radio, or in a surprise mix at a club – and the record's got lots of other nice moments, too, like "Snake Hips", "Fake", and "Keep Together".
