Jeff LorberIn The Heat Of The Night ... CD
BMG/Wounded Bird, 1984. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Sweet fusion grooving from Jeff Lorber – going strong here in a tight early 80s mode that combines jazz and R&B with effortless ease! The leadoff title track is a catchy groover, done with lead vocals by Jeff and Maurice Starr – but most of the other tracks on the set are instrumental, in that tight mode that Lorber virtually invented at the end of the 70s – and coming off with a lot of soul, thanks to guest work from Lee Ritenour on guitar and Ronnie Laws on saxophone. The set also features vocals from Philip Ingram and Alex Ligertwood – each on a track apiece – and titles include "Sushi Monster", "In The Heat Of The Night", "Rock II", "Waterfall", "Blast Off", and "Don't Say Yes".

SwitchSwitch (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Gordy/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $14.99
A seminal bit of seventies soul from Switch, and a record that really helped set the tone for countless others to come in the 80s – no surprise, given that the group's got members from both the DeBarge and Ingram families! There's a warmth here that few others can match – an earnest, honest quality that never gets lost, even amidst the well-crafted instrumentation and tight production of the record – almost an updated legacy of the early 70s east coast scene, but never polished up too much at all! There's some wonderful harmonies that work perfectly on both the upbeat and mellower numbers – warming things up beautifully on titles that include "It's So Real", "I Wanna Be With You", "I Wanna Be Closer", "You Pulled A Switch", and "There'll Never Be". CD features bonus tracks – single versions of "There'll Never Be" and "I Wanna Be Closer". CD

VariousMore Lost Soul Gems From Sounds Of Memphis ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Deep deep work from an under-tapped reservoir of soul – the legendary Sounds Of Memphis label – a key contemporary of Stax Records, but one with a huge amount of material that never got issued at the time! This excellent set corrects that fact, by bringing forth a batch of material that's almost all fresh here for the first time ever – and mixed with just a few rare SOM singles that were issued in the early 70s – all cuts that really show the righteous power of this tiny little label! There's a fair bit of artists here who touched the scene with work in other ways, and others we're really hearing for the first time ever in their company – an amazing picture into the mighty Memphis scene at the time, in a treasure trove of southern soul, deep ballads, and even a few funky numbers too. 22 tracks in all – and titles include "You're Using Me" by Rudolph Taylor, "You Don't Love Me" by Tommy Raye, "A Great Big Thing" by Carroll Lloyd, "Tempted" by Marjorie Ingram, "Hold On Hold Out" by George Jackson, "That's Why I Keep Her" by William Bollinger, "Since My Baby Left Me" by Dan Greer, and "Lost In A Dream" by Vision.

VariousTouch Of Northern Soul – 25 Dance Floor Classics To Touch Your Soul ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
Way more than just a "touch" of Northern Soul – as the set's overflowing with upbeat soul tracks from the 60s – including a fair bit we've not seen on other collections! The set list mixes big names with talents from the underground – and the grooves are often in the tightest modes that Detroit or Philly had to offer at the time – even though the artists included come from a much wider range of scenes! The package features some key tracks that have only been rediscovered by Northern Soul fans in recent years – mixed with more than really lets the whole set burn brightly all the way through. Title sinclude "I Still Love You" by Seven Souls, "When We Get There" by Paul Anka, "Night Owl" by Bobby Paris, "I'll Always Need You" by Dean Courtney, "What's It Gonna Be" by Susan Barrett, "Exus Trek" by Luther Ingram, "The Ice Man" by Billy Watkins, "Dance With Me" by The Blendells, "One More Hurt" by Marjorie Black, "Better Use Your Head" by Dennis D'Ell, "I've Got The Need" by Spooky & Sue, and "Miss Treatment" by The Incredibles. Also includes a few surprising 70s tracks – like "I Wanna Give You Tomorrow" by Benny Troy, "In The Bottle" by Brother To Brother, and "What A Difference A Day Makes" by Esther Phillips. CD

New Loose JointsPop Your Funk – The Complete Singles Collection ... CD
West End/Octave (Japan), Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The complete West End singles of Loose Joints – one of the funkiest projects to ever come from the legendary Arthur Russell – and a set of tracks that also features a fair bit of work from the funky Ingram Family too! The grooves are definitely some of the most offbeat to ever come from the mostly-disco West End label – and do a great job of crossing the space between the NYC downtown art world and club worlds of the early 80s – thanks to Russell's inventive leadership, and his wicked sounds on electric cello and keyboards too! There was never a full album issued under the Loose Joints name, but this set nicely corrects that fact by bringing together a host of different singles and lots of great remixes too – most of which get really weird and play with the original tracks a lot. Titles include "Is It All Over My Face (orig 12" mix)", "Is It All Over My Face (orig 12" Larry Levan female)", "Is It All Over My Face (Masters At Work rmx)", "Is It All Over My Face (unreleased orig full length)", "Pop Your Funk (orig 12")", "Pop Your Funk (orig single voc)", "Tell You (orig 12")", "Tell You (orig 12" new shoes edit)", and "Tell You (orig 12" inst)".

New George DukeNight After Night (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Quite a soul-based set from the great George Duke – a set that not only features his strong keyboards, but also a fair bit of vocals from singers Phil Perry, Jeffery Osborne, and James Ingram – all of whom are a great fit for Duke's evolving sound! Duke had worked heavily with singers on many other albums – and even produced for some of these artists as well – but the vibe here is also more of an extension into 90s modes, both for fusion and R&B – with a few lingering traces of his 80s work, but also a leaner style at times that's nicely appreciated. Titles include "Love Ballad", "Children Of The Night", "Miss Wiggle", "Brazilian Coffee", "This Lovin", "Mystery Eyes", and "Same Ole Love". This Japanese CD edition includes 3 bonus tracks: "560 SL", "Fuzzzion" and "Rise Up". CD

New Salsoul OrchestraHow High (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Salsoul Orchestra in all of its glory – flying high away from Vince Montana on this later release – but still soaring to new heights with help from Bunny Sigler and other Philly talents! The groove is every bit as upbeat as before – Philly club at its best, with lots of help from a classic Sigma Sound lineup – plus some lead vocal work from Cognac, and backups by Barbara Ingram, Ron Tyson, and Bunny Sigler himself! Tunes often have this playful, sing-song sort of groove – similar to Sigler's own club work from the time – which maybe makes them even catchier and more tuneful than before. Titles include "How High", "My Number's Up", "I'll Keep You Warm", "Resorts International", and "Stop & Think". CD features bonus tracks – "How High (Larry Levan rmx)", "Nothing Can Change This Love", "Catch Me On The Rebound (12" inst)", and "How High (single)". CD

New Salsoul OrchestraUp The Yellow Brick Road (with bonus track) ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the stranger moments in the Salsoul catalog, but a great groover too – an album of tunes from films, interpreted by the Salsoul Orchestra in a soaring disco mode! The style was one that was certainly aimed at the more mainstream club-goers at the time – a way to reach out to the older crowds out on Long Island, and find the kind of tunes that would bring them back into the discos. But thanks to Vince Montana, the overall style is still pretty nice – soaring and complicated in true Salsoul fashion, and featuring vocals on most numbers from a trio that includes Barbara Ingram – who really helps give the music a new sort of sparkle. Titles include "Evergreen", "Ease On Down The Road", "West Side Story Medley", and "Fiddler On The Roof Medley". CD features a bonus track – "West Side Story (12" disco version)". CD
