New DelegationOh Honey/Promise Of Love – Soul Trippin ... 12-inch
Shadybrook, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic 12" version of this one! "Oh Honey" is a killer, with a great spacey soul sound, and a monster sample on the intro. This version is 6 minutes long – a real treat! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Shady Brook sleeve.)

New DelegationPromise Of Love ... LP
State, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
The classic first album from Delegation – a great male soul trio from the late 70s, and one who sounds great on both sweet mellow tunes and more upbeat ones! Delegation have a sound that's quite unique, especially on this album – a groove with slightly tropical traces on some numbers, and a way of putting over a tune that borrows a bit from the earlier east coast harmony scene, but which wraps things up in a completely different style of production. The balance is hard to describe accurately, but it's definitely a standout for the time – and a real maturation of an earlier male soul group mode. Titles here include the famous break track "Oh Honey", plus "The Promise Of Love", "Mr Heartbreak", "Where Is The Love", "Soul Trippin", and "Let Me Take You To The Sun". LP, Vinyl record album

New Eddie Lockjaw Davis with Al SmithBlues Shout (aka Hear My Blues) ... LP
Prestige, Late 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Vocalist Al Smith is backed by Eddie Lockjaw Davis' group with Shirley Scott on organ – making for a hip little set that's got a rougher edge than most of the other vocal albums on Prestige. The label delegation for this one was Prestige's Bluesville imprint, but that's not exactly right either, as Al's got a more sophisticated sound, and is more jazz-based in some of his singing – ala Jimmy Witherspoon or Eddie Vinson – than other singers on that label. Titles include "I'll Be Alright", "Night Time Is The Right Time", "Come On Pretty Baby", "Tears In My Eyes", and "Never Let Me Go". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has some wear, small splits on the top and bottom seams, some stains, and an ink stamp on the back.)

New VariousOverdose Of The Holy Ghost – The Sound Of Gospel Through The Disco & Boogie Eras ... LP
Z Records (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Spiritual sounds for the dancefloor – a completely compelling mix of disco and gospel modes, served up here with some of the best-ever examples of the style! Given the decades of crossing between the secular and spiritual worlds of soul music before the disco years, the blend is hardly a surprise – especially since so many disco singers had their roots in the church. But what is a surprise is how great the music works together – how the soaring spirit of one genre works perfectly with the tight rhythms of another – giving these tunes a lofty, righteous quality that goes far beyond the usual emptiness of disco lyrics. There's a mighty message on most of these numbers, and the groove is pretty damn great too – as you'll hear on cuts that include "I Need You (Joey Negro edit)" by Ricky Womack & Christian Essence, "Awake O Zion" by Elbernita Clark, "Overdose Of The Holy Ghost" by The Clark Sisters, "He Lives" by The Young Delegation, "A Better Day" by Sharon Johnson, "He's My Friend" by Rahni Harris & Family Love, and "Love Is The Message (Joey Negro edit)" by Dan Greer. 10 tracks in all on the vinyl. LP, Vinyl record album
