Barbara LewisHello Stranger – Best Of Barbara Lewis ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, Mid 60s. Used ... $14.99
Some of the best non-Motown soul to ever come out of Detroit, and a brilliant example of the uptown soul sound of the 60's! Barbara Lewis was an amazing singer – and although her work was always pretty darn polished, it was handled in a unique way that still remained very soulful, and which was filled with loads of nice twists and turns. This 20-track set from Rhino features the best of her Atlantic years – and nearly every track's a little gem of 60s soul! Includes lots of classics like "Baby, I'm Yours", "Hello Stranger", "Make Me Your Baby", "Puppy Love", "Snap Your Fingers", "Don't Forget About Me", "Baby What Do You Want Me To Do", and more! Heavenly soul, and stuff that we never tire of! CD

New Lewis ConnectionLewis Connection ... LP
Numero, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare funk from the same Minneapolis scene that gave the world Prince – a legendary indie set from the end of the 70s, put together by Lewis brothers Pierre and Andre! Despite their French names, the duo have a mighty American groove on the set – a wicked approach to funk that's very much in the best ensemble mode of the period – but leaner too, given the smaller lineup, and relatively sparse production – which makes most of the record bristle like some rare boogie 45! Vocals are by the brothers, plus female singer Barbara Bolar, and later Prince-mate Sonny Thompson – and Prince himself even adds in some slight magic to one cut on the set. Titles include "Dynamic Duo", "Got To Be Something", "Get Up", "Higher", "Feel Good To Ya", and "Mr G". (And for the record, the group's name on the cover was originally the Lewis Conection – but our spell checker has the title listed with the regular spelling!) LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousSoulsville Sings Hitsville – Stax Sings Songs Of Motown Records ... CD
Stax, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A mighty meeting of Motown and Memphis – as Stax Records artists serve up their own versions of Motor City classics! Given the popularity of Motown in the 60s, it's no surprise that Stax artists covered their hits – but even in a world of familiar tunes, the end results here are often quite different – takes on the songs that are harder, heavier, and significantly deeper than anything Motown was doing at the time! As with The Beatles release in this series, this volume also features some unreleased material – the cuts "Chained (alternate)" by Mavis Staples and "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" by The Bar-Kays – plus first-time CD releases of the cuts "Ask The Lonely" by John Gary Williams and "I Wish It Would Rain" by OB McClinton. Other titles include "Oh Be My Love" by Barbara Lewis, "You've Got To Earn It" by Staple Singers, "I Don't Know Why I Love You" by David Porter, "Never Can Say Goodbye" by Isaac Hayes, and "Someday We'll Be Together" by Frederick Knight.

New Webster LewisTouch My Love (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/Expansion (UK), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Webster Lewis takes off wonderfully here – finding a completely unique groove that's equal parts club, soul, and fusion! The album's almost as sublime as Roy Ayers' best from the time – and has a similar balance that's perfectly done – a depth of thought that goes way beyond conventional club, and a willingness to bring in lots more complicated elements from various jazz sources. Webster's keyboards are nicely out front in the set – and there's some great vocals by a female chorus who sweeten up the sound nicely, but not in ways that are too commercial or cliched. The whole thing's great – a righteous masterpiece through and through – and tracks include "Hideaway", "There's A Happy Feeling", "Touch My Love", "Believe In Yourself", "Barbara Ann", and "Loving". CD features 4 bonus tracks too "Wee Church", "Japanese Umbrella", "Spirit Of Love", and "Touch My Love (alt mix)". CD

New THP OrchestraEarly Riser/Two Hot For Love – Disco Recharge ... CD
Harmless (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A smoking disco double-header from THP Orchestra – two excellent albums back to back, with loads of bonus tracks too! Early Riser has a groove that really has the group starting out strongly – a perfect early disco approach that's funky and instrumental, but which often echoes some other earlier instrumental eras too – partly in the choice of songs, partly in the way that familiar grooves are disco-fied for the 70s! There's more covers here than in later years, but all of them are done mighty well – with a strong use of funky guitars and keyboards that keep a nice edge on the rhythms. Titles include "Theme From SWAT", "More", "Dawn Patrol", "Early Riser", "Crazy Crazy", "Manha De Carnaval", and "Sugar Sugar". CD features 8 more bonus tracks added to the album – including "Theme From SWAT (orig 7" mix)", "Early Riser (orig 12" mix)", "Manha De Carnaval (7" edit)", "Fightin On The Side Of Love (12" mix)", "Fightin On The Side Of Love (inst 7" mix)", and "Fightin On The Side Of Love (inst 12" mix)". Two Hot For Love is a great little disco album – really a cut above its contemporaries, thanks to some great instrumentation overall! Side one features the extended "Two Hot For Love" title track – presented as a mini-suite of sorts with lead vocals from Barbara Fry, a singer who's really a lot more soulful than you'd expect. But even better are the keyboards by Michael Lewis – soaring out with similar spacey touches to his own AVI work, and bringing in some interesting interplay to the tune. Side two features some shorter tracks – including a great funky remake of "Manha De Carnival" with more great Lewis keyboards – plus "Crazy Crazy", "Dawn Patrol", and "Early Riser" – all longer versions than on the group's first album. CD features lots of bonus remixes of the title single "Two Hot For Love" – including an "RCA 12" mix", "7 inch b-side", "Pete Waterman 12" edit", and a few more single mixes. CD

New VariousElaste Vol 4 – Meta Disco & Proto House –Originals Ahead Of Their Time – Compiled By Dompteur Mooner ... CD
Compost (Germany), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest entries in this series so far – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given the great music that Elaste has already given us! The set pushes past the boundaries of the dancefloor – to focus on cosmic cuts that might have gotten some play with DJs, but also really unlock a whole new world of listening too – moving from simpler electronic disco into a range of rhythms and sonic experiments that still sound as fresh today as they did when first cut back in the late 70s and early 80s! Some tunes have surprising warm elements, others have some starker touches that really set the tone for later techno – but are much simpler overall – and far more effective, too. Titles include "Gluttony" by Rinder & Lewis, "It's Heavy (Dompteur Mooner edit)" by Barbara Norris, "XXXO" by Equip, "Notice Me (notice the house mix)" by Sandee, "Beat It" by Disco D, "Mumbo Jumbo" by Cybotron, "Shake The Mind" by C Cat Trance, and "Raga Madhuvanti" by Charanjit Singh.
