Bianca IngramLinguistics ... CD
Society Hill/Essential, 2014. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the younger stars in the Ingram Family galaxy – and one of the more contemporary-sounding ones as well! Bianca Ingram has an approach here that's quite different than some of the more classic-styled work you'd know from Butch and some of her family members – very much in a modern urban mode, with sweet beats bubbling underneath her lovely vocals – and a sharp edge on most tracks that points more towards the streets than the bedroom. And in true contemporary soul mode, the album features a number of guest shots – from Prima, Ock Milly, KD, and Jbrown – on titles that include "Gimme A Break", "Nice Guys", "Just Go", "Sing", "You", "IV", "Come Closer", "So Busy", and "Corruscate".

Ronnie DysonPhase 2/Brand New Day ... CD
Cotillion/Real Gone, 1982/1983. New Copy ... $15.99
A pair of later albums from the great Ronnie Dyson – both of which show him moving strongly well into the 80s! The first set is a self-stated Phase 2 in Ronnie Dyson's career – one that has him moving with a bit more confidence than before, and nicely maturing into a sweet 80s sort of sound! Bobby Eli's at the helm, both on production and rhythm arrangements – and the style here is almost a bit more sophisticated than Dyson's earlier work – kind of that Philly Modern that some of Eli's older contemporaries were hitting. There's no standout hits, but the album's got a nice sense of balance because of that – and overall, the instrumentation's more late 70s than some of the thinner 80s commercial modes. Titles include "Now", "Say You Will", "Heart To Heart", "One More Chance For The Fool", and "Even In The Darkest Night". On Brand New Day, Ronnie's a long way from his falsetto soul hits of the early 70s – but he's seriously back on track as a soul artist, thanks to some smooth help from the Ingram family! Butch Ingram produced the album, and the rest of the Ingrams helped out on instruments, vocals, and even some of the songwriting. In fact, this is more of an Ingram record – with a sound that's very much like their work from the same time – than it is a Ronnie Dyson album. Not that that's a problem, though, as the record's a pretty nice batch of 80s groovers that includes the tracks "You Better Be Fierce", "I Gave You All Of Me", "Tender Lovin Care", "Waiting For You", and "All Over Your Face".

Loose JointsPop Your Funk – The Complete Singles Collection ... CD
West End/Octave (Japan), Early 80s. New Copy ... $22.99
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)".

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".

Philly CreamGroovin ... CD
Society Hill/Essential, 2014. New Copy ... $14.99
The wonderful return of Philly Cream – a group who made some great records at the end of the 70s, and who seem like they haven't missed a beat at all! The style here is really in the old school Philly harmony mode – maybe the modern soul variant, with some slight contemporary touches in the instrumentation – but an overall feel that has all the vocals coming together wonderfully! Old group member Art Austin is working here with younger female singers Simone Talley and Adrienne Aje – and the record has plenty of musical support from Ingram, with Butch Ingram at the production helm – in a similar mode to the other great recent sides on Society Hill. Titles include "Somebody Told Me", "A Beautiful Morning", "Crystal Blue Persuasion", "Slow Down", "Cowboys To Girls", and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For". CD

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.

VariousNorthern Soul – The Film (2CDs/DVD) ... CD
Harmless (UK), Late 60s/2014. New Copy 2CD & DVD ... $26.99
A stunner of a soul set – put together to support the film on England's Northern Soul scene! The package is worth it for the music alone – a massive 54 tracks that stand together as one of the sweetest Northern Soul collections we've seen in years – a really great choice of material that mixes classics from the scene with the sort of newly-discovered gems that have really kept the scene going for far longer than anyone might have expected back in the 60s and 70s. All work here is of late 60s vintage, and titles include "I Gotta Find Me Somebody" by The Vel Vets, "Crying Over You" by Duke Browner, "Exus Trek" by Luther Ingram Orchestra, "Your Autumn Of Tomorrow" by The Crow, "Come On Train" by Don Thomas, "It Really Hurts Me Girl" by The Carstairs, "I Was Born To Love You" by Herbert Hunter, "She'll Come Running Back" by Mel Britt, "Little Love Affair" by Patrinelle Staten, and "You Don't Love Me" by Epitome Of Sound. And if that's not enough, the set also includes a bonus DVD – with an interview with Elaine Constantine, director of the film – plus an audio interview with legendary Northern Soul DJ Richard Sterling, and a slide show of his most cherished relics from the scene in the 70s.

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.

New Carla BensonYou Should Be Here ... CD
Society Hill/Essential, 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet solo record from Philly singer Carla Benson – a vocalist you'll probably know best for her role in the Sweethearts Of Sigma trio, where she backed up countless soul singers in the 70s! The set's a new one, but has a nicely classic vibe – done in more of an 80s Philly modern soul mode, with production and arrangements by Butch Ingram that nicely match his other recent work for the Society Hill imprint. Carla's vocals are richly expressive – maybe more so now than ever – and the set is mostly mellower numbers and midtempo cuts, with titles that include "You Show Me", "I Dreamed A Dream", "You Should Be Here", "Autumn Leaves", "Outstanding", and "Ready For Love".

New Heavy WeatherMovin Easy ... CD
Society Hill/Essential, 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Killer funk from Heavy Weather – a contemporary combo, but one who groove like it's 1982! The group have a tight ensemble approach that rivals that of The Gap Band, Cameo, or Con Funk Shun at their best – all instrumentation right on the money, with a sharp focus that hardly belies the size of the group! The sound is sharp and tight, but never slick or smooth – and these guys use a fair bit of keyboards amidst their snapping grooves and basslines – but always with a touch that's more than warm enough to match the vocals. Butch Ingram produced – and the set shows all his great experience in funky soul over the years – and titles include "Movin Easy", "Let The Music Take You On A Ride", "Ain't No Thang", "Wonderlove", "Stick To It", and "I Came To Dance".

New IllusionsIllusions ... CD
Society Hill/Essential, 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Warm harmony soul in the best Philly mode – work from the Illusions trio, who've got one of their city landmarks featured very prominently on the cover! The group have a style that's a nice throwback to older east coast harmony soul of the 70s – that great moment when groups like this were really able to focus on their sound, and come across with a mature, classy style that few acts from other cities could do this well! The Illusions continue that great tradition, and work here with strong Philly help from Butch Ingram and other Ingram members – who keep things in a perfectly laidback mode to fit the mellow spirit of the vocals. Titles include "Let's Make A Baby", "Darlin Darlin Baby", "I'll Never Love The Same Way Twice", "What's Come Over Me", "I Told You So", and "Think About Tomorrow". CD

New TruBack For More ... CD
Society Hill/Essential, 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A contemporary set, but one that's got a really classic harmony feel – great work from the Philly trio Tru, a group who really keep that old school sound alive and well! These guys have a care with their harmonies that really takes us back to the O'Jays, Delfonics, and other great groups on the scene decades ago – and the production is relatively laidback and unobtrusive, so that the strongest focus is always on the vocals – with just bits of mellow rhythms drifting through the mix to keep things going! Butch Ingram produced, and the rest of the Ingram family provided the instrumentation – and titles include "I'm In Love Again", "To Be True", "I'm Back For More", "Say You Love Me", "Touch Me In The Morning", "Once IN Awhile", and "Let's Spend The Night".

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
