India ArieSongversation (deluxe version – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Motown, 2013. New Copy 2LP .... $24.99 29.98
Feels like forever since we've last heard from India Arie – and damn if we didn't miss her! And this time around, she sounds better than ever before – stepping out with this proud, righteous groove right from the start – the kind of music that, from the very first notes, show why India Arie's way more than most of the pretenders who've tried to cop her act in recent years – but can never touch the genius of the lady at her finest! Most tracks here were done in collaboration with Shannon Sanders, who electrifies the music without making it too commercial or beat-heavy at all – and, if anything, the whole record has this amazing quality in which the vocals seem to embody the rhythms on their own – working with a flow that's really tremendous, and still retaining some of the acoustic soul of the early years. Titles include "Flowers", "Nothing That I Love More", "Cocoa Butter", "Just Do You", "Break The Shell", "This Love", "Thy Will Be Done", and "Brother's Keeper" – plus some cool "Soulbird" interludes. Features four bonus tracks too – "Soulbird Reprise Ney", "Thank You", "6th Avenue", and "Strange Fruit". LP, Vinyl record album

New Brand New HeaviesBrother Sister ... CD
Delicious Vinyl, 1994. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

New Aloe BlaccGood Things ... LP
Stones Throw, 2010. New Copy 2LP .... Out Of Stock
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.

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

VariousLuxury Soul 2013 (3CD box set) ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2013. New Copy 3 CDs .... Just Sold Out!
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.

New Marc StaggersBack 2 Soul ... CD
Mar Reg, 2013. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Really rich work from vocalist Marc Staggers – a singer who's got a very classic approach to his music, and a style that most other contemporaries can't match! Staggers has a fullness to his range that almost recalls contemporary gospel – but his musical approach is definitely secular, and has this warm mix of rhythms and vocals that sparkles with loads of sweet 70s touches – not in a retro way, but just in a mode that shows that Marc's already on course to serve the kind of music you'll be going back to again and again over the years! The set's self-produced, and features great original material – a wonderfully unpretentious, ungimmicky album that's almost in the territory of classic work by The Isley Brothers. Titles include "Soul Summer Love", "You're My Everything", "Not Gonna Stop", "There's Nothing Better Than Love", "Key To My Heart", "Let's Just Take Our Time", and "With The Things You Do". CD
