VRevelation Is Now Televised ... CD
BBE (UK), 2005. Used .... $7.99
An instant classic – and one of the best new soul albums of the 21st Century so far – the debut of Valvin Roane II, aka V – a fresh talent from the wide side of the Philly scene! V's working here with production from Jazzy Jeff, Pete Smoovah, and Pete Kuzma, Jill Scott's bandleader – and the set has an amazing quality that more than lives up to it's classic-styled cover and title! V sings with a voice that would be great enough on its own – a church-schooled mode that's deeply soulful, and which hearkens back to 70s Marvin Gaye or Stevie Wonder – but with the added production from Jeff and the Petes, he really strides forward with a bold new sound – one that's spacey one minute, crispy the next – often laidback, yet never lazy in its approach to the music. And while it would be easy enough to label this one as "classic soul" and leave it at that, V's also got a vibe that's richly his own – one that really fits the unpretentious photo on the cover, and which is a refreshing change from overly-postured male soul (and that includes even the stuff that's pretending its not!) Titles include "Born Again", which features Jill Scott – plus "Confess", "Best Friend", "Picture This", "Still", "Who Would I Be", "Would U Be Mine", "Anotha Phase", "Melody", and "Hey Pretty Baby".

New RajdulariJourney Of A Woman ... CD
Rajdulari Music, 2014. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really great debut from Rajdulari – a singer with a hell of a strong voice, and a great ability to mix her lyrics with funky instrumental elements – maybe the best artist to do so since the debut of Jill Scott! The record's got a really special sort of punch – a quality that's upbeat and positive, yet laidback and confident too – never over-postured, but perfectly put-together – with a quality that sends the whole thing out of the park from the very first tune! It's great to hear a record this fresh, and this striking – especially from an artist we've never dug before – a really fresh voice that's one of the best new soul singers we've heard from New York in years. Titles include "Natural", "Peace", "Open Air", "Real Love", "Miracles", "Juicy", and "Journey Of A Woman". CD

New Eric RobersonEric Roberson Presents: The Vault Vol 1 ... CD
Eric Roberson, 2002. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Brilliant work from America's next great soul singer – the incredible Eric Roberson, one of the freshest male soul vocalists in years! At one level, Eric's work is steeped in the classic styles of Donnie Hathaway and Marvin Gaye – but at another, it's completely without cliche or stylistic precedent – as fresh as the best newer work by female singers like Jill Scott or Julie Dexter. Roberson's rhythmic conception is really tremendous – open, free, and presented in a way that pushes the vocals past obvious patterns that so often plague male soul singers. The set's got a really fresh approach that's also due in part to Roberson's use of a variety of producers – including Osunlade, Vidal Davis, Redhead Kingpin, and others. Jill Scott does guest vocals on the track "One Time", but it's Eric's genius that really brings the whole set home! Titles include "Rock With You", "Past Paradise", "She Couldn't Hear Me", "Rebound", "Rain On My Parade", and "When Love Calls" – and if you've been looking for a soul record to change your life, this is it!
