New Joyce CollinsGirl Here Plays Mean Piano (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Jazzland (Japan), 1960. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The girl here DOES play mean piano – using her instrument in a way that's surprisingly soulful and filled with lyrical touches! We really don't know Collins much at all – but we've always dug this standout album on Jazzland, part of the label's wave of new discoveries right at the start of the 60s – and the set's got almost an Oscar Peterson Trio sort of vibe, with tunes that hit hard rhythmically one minute, then lay back into more intimate expressions the next. Rhythm here is by the team of Roy Green on bass and Frank Butler on drums – and tracks include versions of "Day In Day Out", "The End Of A Love Affair", "I Let A Song Go Out Of My Heart", "Walkin", and "Ah Moore".

New Collins & CollinsCollins & Collins ... CD
A&M/Souldify (Netherlands), 1980. Used .... Out Of Stock
A stunning set – and one of our favorite modern soul albums ever! The set was recorded at Sigma Sound Studios in 1980, and it's one of the best-ever records to come out of that hallowed hall of grooves – a one-off debut from the team of Tonee & Bill Collins, set to impeccable arrangements from the mighty John Davis! The set's not really disco – more a blend of mellow soul and midtempo club – with a sound that evokes artists like Barry White, Leon Ware, and Leroy Hutson – but which also grooves with a feel that's all its own. Nearly every cut's fantastic, and although you may know the duo's classic "Top Of The Stairs" from other collections, there's loads of other nice tracks here too – like "You Know How To Make Me Feel So Good", "Can't Turn Down Love", and "You Made Me Believe".

Dennis CoffeyDennis Coffey ... CD
Strut (UK), 2011. Used .... $7.99
The return of Detroit funk and soul guitar legend Dennis Coffey – and it's not only a welcome one, it's great – a record that finds Dennis at an exuberant, funky high point! On this self-titled set, he's joined by adventurous creative spirits who he's inspired over the years, including Kings Go Forth, Fanny Franklin of Orgone, Mayor Hawthorne, Paolo Nutini and members of The Detroit Cobras, The Bellrays and The Dirtbombs. It's not only a testament to Coffey's genius that such a diverse roster of guests are happy to pitch in here, it's a statement to his far reaching style that it all works so well. From his roots with Motown house band The Funk Brothers to his wild solo work and breakbeat funk staples, he's a timeless master of soul, funk, rock and the confluence of all the above. His influence is as apparant as ever well into a new millenium, so it's a real treat to have him back and in such vital form. Includes the knockout instros "7th Galaxy", "Plutonius", "Knockabout", "Space Traveller" "Miss Millie" with Kings Go Forth and "Don't Knock My Love (Pt 2)" – plus Don't Knock My Love" feat Fanny Franklin, "All Your Goodies Are Gone" feat Mayer Hawthorne, "Only Good For Conversation" feat Paolo Nutini, "I Bet You" with Mick Collins of The Dirtbombs and Rachel Magy of Detroit Cobras and more.

VariousYou Better Believe It – Rare & Modern Soul Gems 1967-1978 ... CD
WEA (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used .... $8.99
This is the kind of soul music we live for – sweet, rare tracks that never made the charts, but which sound as great as any of the bigger hits from the time! The collection brings together 25 tracks recorded for Atlantic and Warner Brothers during the late 60s and 1970s – many of them done in the same studios, with the same producers and arrangers, as the bigger hits of the time – but with a fresher feel that's kept them in the underground for many years. A few of the numbers on the set are lesser-known tracks by bigger artists, and others are incredible contributions from acts who never got the chance to cut a full LP – stepping forth here with some wonderful smooth soul tunes that rank with our favorite work from the time! The whole thing's great, and titles include "Calling For Your Love" by The Enticers, "You'll Never Be Sorry" by Gerald Sims, "I've Got To Come In" by Jean Battle, "Paint Yourself In The Corner" by The Classic Sullivans, "Without A Doubt" by Major Lance, "Save Your Love For Me" by Vivian Reed, "One On One" by Prince Phillip Mitchell, "Free (I'm Coming Home)" by Cool Sounds, "I Love You" by Terry Collins, "Nice & Easy" by Barbara Lynn, "Let's Get Together" by The Aristocrats, "Fragile Handle With Care" by Sam Dees, and "May Not Be What You Want" by Bobby Sheen.

New Carmen McRaeAny Old Time (Jazz Heritage pressing) ... CD
Denon/Jazz Heritage, 1986. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A warm later set from Carmen McRae – recorded with great small combo jazz backing that features tenor sax work from Clifford Jordan! The album's a real back-to-basics one for McRae – and gets away from crossover modes used in the 60s and 70s, taking Carmen back to the more jazz-based sound of her earliest records – but going even one further by bringing in Jordan, since Carmen mostly started out with straight trio backing. Other players include Eric Gunnison on piano and John Collins on guitar – and the tunes themselves are mostly standards, sung with impeccable phrasing. Titles include "Tulip Or Turnip", "Body & Soul", "I Hear Music", "This Is Always", "It Could Happen To You", "Old Devil Moon", and "Have You Met Miss Jones". CD

New Billy TaylorBilly Taylor Touch ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1951/1957. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Billy Taylor touch is mighty nice here – on a blend of tracks that were partially recorded during Billy's earliest years as a leader, and partially recorded during his big rise to fame in the late 50s! Taylor's handling of the piano is beautiful throughout – already quite soulful, but showing some of the warmer, more lyrical modes of Billy's early years too! Half the tracks are from 1951 – recorded with a quartet that includes John Collins on guitar, Shadow Wilson on drums, and Al McKibbon on bass – and the other half are from 1958, with Billy's famous trio with Ed Thigpen on drums and Earl May on bass – a lineup similar to his recordings for ABC. Titles include "Good Groove", "Somebody Loves Me", "You Make Me Feel So Young", "Can You Tell By Looking At Me", and "Earl May". CD

New VariousCreme De La Creme Vol 2 – More Philly Soul Classics & Rarities ... CD
WEA (UK), 1970s. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sublime soul from 70s Philly – not just the hits, but a great range of lesser-known gems as well! The set follows strongly on the first volume of the series, but goes even deeper – and presents a range of rare singles here for the first time on CD, and a few more previously unissued numbers – alongside a well-chosen batch of overlooked album tracks from the 70s catalogs of Warner, Atlantic, and related labels who all worked often on the prime Philly scene. There's a wide Sigma Sound groove that runs deeply through the set – a magnificent blend of tight rhythms and smooth instrumentation, mostly cut in the pre-disco years and applied to vocals from a range of excellent male and female singers! Titles include "Look Me Up" by Blue Magic, "Action Speaks Louder Than Words" by Terry Collins, "Happy Man (part 1)" by Impact, "When The Game Is Played On You" by Bettye Swann, "Each Morning I Wake Up" by Major Harris, "No Danger Ahead" by Ben E King, "What A Man" by Jackie Moore, "Mama Never Told Me (Tom Moulton rmx)" by Sister Sledge, "Spinnin Top" by Movin Violation, "Loving You Is Mellow" by Aristocrats, "Are You Ready For Love" by Spinners, "That's The Way Love Should Feel" by Dee Dee Bridgewater, "You & Me" by Margie Joseph & Blue Magic, "Never Love Again" by Holly Maxwell, "Tired Of Being Alone" by Vivian Reed, and "Some Guys Have All The Luck" by The Persuaders. Includes 4 previously unreleased tracks! CD

New Marvin GayeHere, My Dear (expanded 2CD edition) ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, 1978. Used 2CD .... Out Of Stock
Wonderful stuff – and one of our favorite-ever Marvin Gaye albums! This is the legendary two-record set that Marvin wrote and recorded as an alimony payment to his ex-wife Anna Gordy (the story's pretty long, and we won't get into it here – suffice it to say that when stars get a divorce, watch out!) Although the album was thought of as a no-brainer quickie at the time – and predicted to fail so that Anna wouldn't get any cash from it – the record is an extremely well-crafted one, filled with extremely personal songs that also have a warm soulful finish, in the style of Marvin's work on the LP I Want You (which is kind of a nice bookend to this one – as it was an extended love poem to the young girlfriend that caused him to split up with Anna!) Hard and soulful, the record's a searing testimony to the relationship between Marvin and Anna, and a painful document of the troubles between them – set to some mellow grooves that are easily some of Marvin's greatest of the 70s! The set's filled with great "lost" Marvin Gay songs, too – like "Sparrow", "When Did You Stop Loving Me", "Anger", "You Can Leave, But It's Going To Cost You", and "Time to Get it Together". Expanded CD features the famous 12" instrumental version of "A Funky Space Reincarnation" – plus a full set of 12 bonus alternate mixes produced by the likes of Mocean Worker, Easy Mo Bee, Leon Ware, Marcus Miller, Prince Paul, Bootsy Collins, Slaam Remi, and The Randy Watson Experience – including "Anger (alt extended)", "Here My Dear (alt mix)", "Time To Get It Together (alt extended mix)", "Falling In Love Again (alt version)", "I Met A Little Girl (alt version)", "Sparrow (alt version)", and "Anna's Song (inst – alt version)".
