New Anita BakerSongstress ... LP
Beverly Glen, 1983. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
From the female singer in the obscure group Chapter 8, Anita went onto become one of the biggest selling soul music acts during the 80s – and this album's her first effort as a solo act. The record's a smooth sophisticated batch of soul tunes, with lots of nice jazzy touches, and a classy sound that was quite refreshing in the face of some of the overly-synthesized soul work of the time. Patrick Moten produced and wrote most of the cuts – but it's Anita's deep vocals that make the record work so well. Titles include "You're The Best Thing Yet", "Feel The Need", "No More Tears", "Will You Be Mine", and "Do You Believe Me". LP, Vinyl record album

New Johnnie TaylorBest Of The Old & The New ... LP
Beverly Glen, 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing post-Columbia Records work from Johnnie Taylor – a set that's tighter, better, and more put-together than ever before – and which really takes the singer into some great new territory! The vibe here is warm and sophisticated – a mellow modern soul mode that's carried off by arrangements from Gene Page – who wraps up Johnnie's bluesy vocals in this wonderful setting that really takes off from his best work at Columbia. The album may well be one of our favorite moments ever from Taylor – completely different than his work at Stax, but equally great in a really unique way – and titles include "Seconds Of Your Love", "What About My Love", "I'm So Proud", "Hey For The Winner", "Shoot For The Stars", and "Just Ain't Good Enough". LP, Vinyl record album

New Johnnie TaylorJust Ain't Good Enough ... LP
Beverly Glen, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little album of modern soul, cut by Johnnie Taylor years after his early raw Stax recordings, and about half a decade after his hit with "Disco Lady". The record's a surprising treat, and has Johnnie singing with smooth slick arrangements, in a warm mellow style, given a nice edge by the bluesy roots in his vocals. Gene Page handled the arrangements, and there's some great mellow steppers – like "What About My Love", "I'm So Proud", and "Don't Wait". Also features a few slap-bass tracks like "I Need A Freak" and "Just Ain't Good Enough" – but stick with the mellow stuff. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has moisture staining along the right half.)

New Bobby WomackPoet ... LP
Beverly Glen, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first of Bobby's highly successful Poet albums from the early 80s – wonderfully done albums that showed the world that he was still very much on top of his game at the time! The sound here is great – still with that older Womack rasp and warmth, but also done in a slightly smoother mode that grooves things up with some modern soul touches, yet never loses Bobby's charm! Tunefully, the record is one of his best in years – with some wonderful mellow soul groovers that never fail to delight – all produced with a warm California sound, and featuring some great backing vocals by The Waters and a host of other Womacks. Titles include "So Many Sides Of You", "Lay Your Lovin On Me", "Secrets", "Just My Imagination", "Games", "If You Think You're Lonely Now", and "Where Do We Go From Here". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has ring & edge wear.)

New Bobby WomackPoet II ... LP
Beverly Glen, 1984. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of Bobby's biggest albums of the 80s – and a smooth soulful set that features some nice guest work from the likes of George Benson, Patti Labelle, and Wilton Felder. We're a bit more partial to Bobby's earlier work, but his voice is always a treasure, with a raspy soulful edge that never goes away, no matter how smooth the production. Titles include "Tryin To Get Over You", "Through The Eyes Of A Child", "Love Has Finally Come At Last", "Who's Foolin Who", and "I Wish I Had Someone To Go Home To". LP, Vinyl record album
(Shrinkwrap is torn at the spine.)

Les BaxterLost Episode Of Les Baxter (10-inch ep) ... LP
Dionysus, 1961. New Copy ... $11.99
Some of the coolest sounds ever recorded by Les Baxter – issued here for the first time ever! The material was done during Baxter's famous run of exotica albums for Capitol Records – but is pulled from a videotape of an obscure TV performance, and features some of the few live performances that Les ever did of this music! There's some great jazz elements in the music at times – thanks especially to wonderful vibes from the great Larry Bunker, who also plays a fair bit of percussion too – and two numbers feature sublime vocals by Beverly Ford, a singer with a space-age range to match that of Bas Sheva or Yma Sumac, but with an almost-electronic quality that rivals that of Mary Mayo with Dick Hyman. Titles include "Quiet Village", "Ruby", "Lover", "Chopsticks", and "It's A Big Wide Wonderful World". LP, Vinyl record album

Fonzi ThorntonLeader ... LP
RCA, 1983. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Slammin' 80s groove material from Fonzi Thornton – a bit dated, perhaps, but sparkling with the best of its generation! Fonzi's vocals are less the strong part of the album than are the tight arrangements that mix together bass riffing, keyboards, and a smooth approach to the groove that makes most of the tracks pretty darn infectious. Titles include "The Leader", "There Goes My Heart", "Sha N Da (Happy Love Song)", "Beverly", "Be My Baby", "Perfect Lover", and "Sayin Goodbye". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousGirls On 45 Vol 2 – A selection Of Girl Groups, Girlie Pop, & Soulful Ladies 1963 to 1967 ... CD
Teensville, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
A beautiful batch of prime quality, but quite obscure girl group singles – 45s cut for the majors and larger indies in the mid 60s – but didn't break out in a big way, despite being just as lovely and catchy as the big hits of the day! This is the second volume in what we hope will be a long series, and it's got a few names that'll be recognizable to diggers of rare rock, pop and soul – but the material has for the most part been buried for way too long. Beautiful stuff! It's a packed collection, too. 26 tracks in all: "Usher Boy" by Merry Clayton, "Run Johnny Run" by Ramona King, "Outside City Limits", "He's Hurtin' Me" by Beverly Williams, "Changed Disposition" by The Party Favors, "Big Man" by Barbara Jackson, "After Last Night" by The Rev-Lon, "You're My Baby" by The Carolines, "You're Not The Guy For Me" by Ernestine Anderson, "Don't Say Goodbye" by Jean King, "Don't Pity Me" by Joanie Sommers, CD

VariousMid Century Minx – Female Vocal Seduction From The Fifties & Sixties ... CD
Cherry Red/Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the coolest sets of female vocal jazz we've ever heard – a package that goes way past the overdone torch song cliches or the bluer-toned weepies – and reminds us that at the heart of the matter, all the best singers from the time still had an undeniably sexy appeal! The collection features a few bigger names, but most are relatively lesser-known – the kind of singers who were more than happy to stick to the underground and just get the odd recording date here and there – because it meant that they never had to go pop or try to sacrifice their craft in the hopes of a hit record. Titles include "Off Shore" by Ethel Ennis, "For Heaven's Sake" by Anne Phillips, "Beyond The Next Hill" by Beverly Kenny, "Blue City" by Shirley Horn, "A Stranger In Town" by Lurlean Hunter, "Shangri-La" by Dolores Gray, "Baltimore Oriole" by Barbara Lea, "Can't We Be Friends" by Toni Harper, "Along With Me" by Jane Fielding, and "Travlin Light" by Marcy Lutes.

VariousR&B Singles Collection Vol 2 – Outta Sight Red Hot Rhythm & Blues ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
Blazing R&B, slightly more simmering soul, and some rollicking wildcard tunes that split the difference – all on this fantastic second volume in the R&B Singles series from Outta Sight! It's a great collection, culled mostly from the fertile early 60s period when the sound was still strongly rooted in mid-to-late 50s rhythm & blues, yet beginning to lay the groundwork for gritty southern soul and tighter Northern Soul sounds to come. A nice mix of legendary names and lesser known stars alike, with 30 great tracks in all: "Feelin' Kind A Lonesome" by Willie J Charles with Lionel Hampton, the eternally amazing "Cry To Me" by Solomon Burke", "Earthquake" by Roy Hamilton, "Come On Baby" by Marie Knight, "The Snake" by Oscar Brown Jr, "How Many More Times" by HB Barnum, "Shake It Up And Go" by John Lee Hooker, "A Three Dollar Bill" by Beverly Ann Gibson, "I See Your Face" by Joe Simon, "Betty Mae" by Rodger Green and more.

New Herbie MannFlamingo – Herbie Mann Quartet Volume 2 ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An early showcase for the cool, compressed flute work of the young Herbie Mann – a style that created a great bridge to jazz for so many later players on the instrument! The Mann heard here isn't the overblown, soul-drenched Herbie of the 60s – but a player who's very careful with his tone and timing, yet still able to swing incredibly well! Herbie's solos are a masterpiece of economy – and set up strongly in a hip quartet that features some equally careful work from Joe Puma on guitar – plus Charles Andrus on bass and Harold Granowsky on drums. There's a number of strong original tunes on the set – numbers written with a bit of wit and angular finish – and titles include "Jasmin", "Woodchuck", "One Way Love", "Sorimao", "The Influential Mr Cohn", and "Beverly".

New FlashbackIssue 4 – Winter 2013 ... Magazine
Flashback (UK), 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Over 200 pages, with a heavy cover, full color images, and the kind of in-depth presentation that almost makes Flashback more of a book than a magazine! The cover feature looks at the fuzzy folk rock combo Trees – and other big articles include Wilkinson Tri Cycle, Mandrake Memorial, July, producer Peter Eden, and the London scene memories of Beverly Martyn – plus a deep discussion on the virtues of mono versus stereo, 50 intriguing albums in the exploitation genre, and a stunning amount of CD, LP, and book reviews!

New VariousMainstream Soul Survey – Man Needs A Woman ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare look at the soul music side of Mainstream Records – a label that's mostly known for its famous jazz fusion sides of the early 70s – but who also turned out a fair bit of great soul work as well! Most of the Mainstream soul tracks were only ever issued as 45s – making this collection even more valuable in the way that it scoops up countless bits of lost wax, and brings them together in a whopping 26 track package – much of which has never been reissued before! The titles here all originally appeared on the Mainstream, IX Chains, and Brown Dog label – and although Mainstream often had a reputation for tight production on its jazz, there's a nicely rough-edged feel to most of these numbers – styles that echo southern soul and New Jersey indie work from the same time. Equally important is the fact that many of these cuts represent obscure early material by artists who would score much bigger on later labels – a great help to filling in the cracks in their early careers. Titles include "You Can Be Cured", and "Take A Few More Steps" by Randolph Brown, "We're Not Too Young To Fall In Love" and 'When Something Is Wrong With My Baby" by Jackie Beavers, "It's All In The Back Of Me Now" and "Everyone Has Someone" by Linda Perry, "Where Can I Run" by The Underground Express, "Call On Me" and "Intruder" by LJ Reynolds, "Down On Me" by Jeany Reynolds, "Satisfy My Woman" by Calvin Arnold, "Grass Ain't Greener" by Charles Beverly, "We Gonna Make It" by Roger Hatcher, "You Shot Me" by The Georgia Soul Twisters, and "Business Deal" by Doris Duke.

New Serendipity SingersLove Is A State Of Mind (mono & stereo mixes – plus bonus tracks) ... CD
United Artists/Now Sounds (UK), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful sounds from a very groovy group – a mixed male/female ensemble who come off here with a surprisingly cool sound – kind of a mix of Sunshine Pop with some surprisingly dark undercurrents that definitely nod at the psych image on the cover! A few years earlier, these guys might have sounded all bright and squeaky – the kind of group you'd hear singing on airline commercials – but here, they lay back and get all nice and moody, while still letting their harmonies stay strong – mixing the lighter and deeper vocals with some orchestrations that have lots of nice jazzy undercurrents too! Titles include a great version of "It Ain't Necessarily Byrd Avenue", plus "Rain Doll", "I'd Stumble & Fall", "Signs Of Love", "The Boat That I Row", and "Beverly Believer". CD features both mono and stereo versions of the album – plus bonus tracks "Illusions" and "What Will We Do With The Child". CD

New VariousNames You Can Can Trust – Volume One ... CD
Names You Can Trust, 2012. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first full length compilation from NYC Trust – including cuts from limited vinyl releases and some previously unreleased bits – with tracks by Greenwood Rhythm Coalition, Midnight Lab Band, Frente Cumbiero, Doctor Stereo and Beverly Road All Stars! It's modern dancefloor grooves with global roots – the kind that eschews trends, yet has a contemporary feel. It was mostly recorded from 2009-2012, and built to last – this will still sound fresh a decade down the road! Includes "Secret Stash (Fumaca Jazz Remix)", "Over Easy's: and "Guajira '78" and more by Greenwood Rhythm Coalition, "Pavita" and "Unconvention" by Frente Cumbiero, "Moonwalking", "The Forgotten Chant (Revisted by Los Fulanos)" and more by Midnight Lab Band, "La Cumbia Perdida" by Doctor Stereo, "Murder She Wrote" by Beverley Road All Stars and more.
