Aloe BlaccGood Things ... LP
Stones Throw, 2010. New Copy 2LP ... Just Sold Out!
Cinematic soul rooted in the rawer organ, drums and horns vibes that resonated deeply in records from north to south in the 70s – done with a lean, tight and head nodding groove no doubt informed by Aloe Blacc's own roots in hip hop – on his best album yet and one of best raw soul styled albums ever to come from our friends at Stones Throw! Good Things is a giant leap ahead of Shine Through, Aloe's previous full length on the label. We loved that record for its gritty, unique approach to funky soul, but, Good Things reaches for the heights of Aloe's heroes from Donny Hathaway to Marvin Gaye – and comes closer than we could have imagined! It's produced by the Truth & Soul team, with a timeless funk & soul vibe comparable to their work with the great Lee Fields. We have a feeling we'll still be listening to this album 10-15-20 years from now. Essential! Titles include the underground breakout "I Need A Dollar", an incredible cover of The Velvet Underground's "Femme Fatale" (we must have dropped the needle on that 50 times in the first couple days we had it), "Green Lights", "Miss Fortune", "Good Things", "Loving You Is Killing Me", "Mama Hold My Hand", "Hey Brother" and more.

New Jill Scott & OthersCollaborations ... CD
Hidden Beach, 2007. Used 2CD ... $4.99
Jill Scott's a singer with a mighty generous spirit – and in addition to her own (all too few) recordings over the years, she's made some tremendous appearances on records under the leadership of other artists – a good deal of which are included in this set! Jill's not the kind of singer to just sleepwalk into the studio and deliver a few standard vocals when making a guest shot – and instead, she brings a new sense of life and energy to each different appearance in the set – coming across with a street-heavy vibe one minute, a more laidback cosmic mode the next, and a more classically-tuned soul sound at still another point. The set's a great illustration of the depths of Scott's rich talents – and even though we'd rather have Jill spending more time in the studio recording her own music, we're still plenty happy to have so many of her great guest appearances together in one package like this! CD features 14 tracks in all – including "Love Rain" with Mos Def, presented in "head nod" and "coffee shop" remixes – plus "Said Enough" with The Isley Brothers, "One Time" with Eric Roberson, "Good Morning Heartache" with Chris Botti, "Daydreamin" with Lupe Fiasco, "Let Me" with Sergio Mendes & Will I Am, "8 Minutes To Sunrise" with Common, "Sometime I Wonder" with Darius Rucker, "Slide" with Jeff Bradshaw, "The Rain" with Will Smith, and "God Bless The Child" with Al Jarreau & George Benson. CD
(Also features a bonus CD – with material by Hidden Beach artists who include Jill Scott, Keite, Jeff Bradshaw, Peter Black, Sunny Hawkins, and Onitsha.)

Joss StoneSoul Sessions ... CD
S Curve, 2003. Used ... $2.99
A surprisingly deep batch of pop soul from Joss Stone – one that manages to live up to the title! Joss goes way out with her strong, deeply 70s influenced vocal histrionics on a batch of tunes that stretch all over the songwriting landscape. She tackles tunes by as far-reaching a group of writers as Harlan Howard on the opening "The Chokin' Kind" to the Isley Brothers' "For The Love Of You" and many points in between, with the same extroverted approach. She kind of comes off as a female equivalent of Remy Shand – and she's enlisted an all star cast of support players and producers including ?uestlove, Angie Stone, Little Beaver and others. Other tracks include "Super Duper Love", "Dirty Man", "I've Fallen In Love With You", "Victim Of A Foolish Heart", "I Had A Dream", "Some Kind Of Wonderful" and others. CD

New Kloud 9On Kloud 9 (US version with bonus tracks) ... CD
Compendia/Expansion, 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great bit of smooth modern soul from Kloud 9 – an American duo with a sound that's reminiscent of the mellow Isley Brothers work of the late 70s and early 80s! These guys are totally great – warm, soulful, and in a mode that male vocalists hardly seem to match these days – voices drifting back and forth with effortless ease, yet also hitting a deeper approach that keeps things going very strong – mixed with keyboards for a sweetly soulful groove all the way through. The album features guest production by Bluey of Incognito and Ray Hayden of Opaz, a guest appearance by Incognito, duet vocals with Karen Bernod – but the real strength lies in the work of Kloud 9, a great pair of singers we hope to hear more from! Titles include "Never Knew", "If You Ever", "Let's Not Lose", "Priority", "Soul Mate", "Promise", "With Me", "Make You Mine", "Mercy Of Your Love", "A Moment", and "On Kloud 9". US pressing features 2 bonus tracks – "Everything About This Love" and "Ready Willing Wanting". CD
(Out of print, small amount of writing in pen inside booklet.)

New VariousLuxury Soul 2013 (3CD box set) ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2013. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Soulful luxury at a mighty nice price – 3CDs and 35 tracks of music from both the contemporary underground, and back in the day! The package is one of the best so far in this annual series – and like the others, it has a great way of turning up unusual numbers we might have missed otherwise – some subtle gems and overlooked sleepers, which makes the package as much of a place for new discovery as it is a musical bargain. Titles include "So Inspired" by Big Brooklyn Red, "Suddenly" by Adriana Evans, "On The Rebound" by Dave Appell & Friends, "When I Think Of You" by Holloway & John Whitehead, "Rise" by Beggar & Co, "Someday We'll All Be Free (Yam Who rmx)" by Diplomats Of Soul, "Just Like Me" by Junk Funk, "Major Bossa" by Khari Simmons, "Loving You" by Soul Talk, "Believe" by Lady Alma, "Blown Away" by Kevin Leo, "Time For The Party" by Sheree Brown, "Taste of Your Love" by Valentine Brothers, and "Dime" by Kloud 9.
