New Linda LewisLark (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Reprise/Big Break (UK), 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best-ever albums by this lovely soulful singer! Linda Lewis had an amazing style that was somewhere in between Minnie Riperton, Joni Mitchell, and Ellen McIlwaine – meaning that she mixes soul, folk, and a bit of jazz into her own unique vibe. This album's a gem, and is filled with groovy little songs that have a great sweetly jazzy vibe, and some excellent production that keeps things nicely in place. Linda wrote all the tracks, and backing is by a tight little group that mixes guitar, keyboards, and percussion, in kind of an LA small studio combo sort of way. Titles include "Spring Song", "It's The Frame", "Feeling Feeling", "Waterbaby", and "More Than A Fool". Great songwriting, and one of the loveliest voices that never got the fame it deserved! CD also features the bonus track "Rock A Doodle Doo" – kind of a hit for Linda! CD

New Linda LewisTear & A Smile (with bonus tracks) ... CD
CBS/Big Break (UK), 1983. Used ... Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem from Linda Lewis – an early 80s album recorded after her time in the 70s limelight – and a set that's every bit as strong, if not stronger than, most other soul records of the time! Lewis is working here with studio help from two different forces – a warm New York sound from the mighty Bert DeCouteaux, and some snappier London grooves supplied by The Quick – who help update Lewis' sound slightly, yet still keep things right on the money! Linda's vocals are wonderful – and if anything, they've gotten even better with maturity – shedding off some of that little girl feel of previous years, and really making us believe some of the more bittersweet lyrics in the set. Titles include "Destination Love", "I Am What I Am", "Don't Let It Go", "This Boy", "Why Can't I Be The Other Woman", "Sweet Heartache", and "You Don't Know What You're Missing". CD features 5 bonus tracks – "Come On Back", "I Can Take It", "Class/Style (12" groove mix)", "You Turned My Bitter Into Sweet (12" megamix)", and "Class/Style (single)". CD

New Linda LewisFathoms Deep (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Reprise/Big Break (UK), 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful album from Linda Lewis – certainly one of her best from the early days, and a completely captivating mixture of soul, jazz, and rock that sparkles like Minnie Riperton's best work from the time! The album's got a sweet LA sound – with Linda's great vocals up front in the mix, and lots of nice touches on acoustic guitar, almost foreshadowing the later work Sheree Brown with some nicely jazzy undercurrents! Lewis' sound here is great – very unique, warm and sweet, with a quality that really makes her stand out from other artists of her generation. Tracks include "Lullabye", "Fathoms Deep", "I'm In Love Again", "Play Around", "Wise Eyes", "On The Stage", and "Goodbye Joanna". Includes some nice bonus tracks too – the classic groover "Sideway Shuffle", the track "Safe & Sound", and an acoustic demo of "Red Light Ladies". CD

New Linda LewisLive In Old Smokey ... CD
Market (UK), 2005. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite female soul singers of the 70s – captured here in a really great recent live show at Ronnie Scotts! The album shows that Linda's lost none of her brilliance over the years – and is still able to work in that dreamy mix of jazz, acoustic guitar, and lightly soulful vocals we loved so much in her classic work for Reprise. But she's got a warmer sound here too – a great small combo mode with plenty of jazz touches, nicely freed up from some of the clunkier styles that sometimes hurt her studio albums. Breezy and beautiful throughout – a great testament to the ongoing strength of Lewis as an artist – with tracks that include "Do You Know Dino", "Love Plateau", "I'm In Love Again", "Waving", "Sideway Shuffle", "Grandaddy's Calypso", "Far Cry", "Moon & I", and "For Love's Sake".

David SanbornSanborn ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99
A damn great early moment from David Sanborn – a record that really shows the reedman at his best – working some tight solos over soulful backings in the same 70s manner as Tom Scott or Wilton Felder! Like both of those players, David's got the chops to step out in front of the backings strongly – blowing some of his best notes with surprisingly little flourish, and crafting a soulful lead that's supported by work from Hiram Bullock on guitar, Rosalinda De Leon on keyboards, and Victor Lewis on drums. There's a bit of vocals on the album – courtesy of Patti Austin, Lain Groves, Phoebe Snow, and Paul Simon – and titles include "Indio", "Smile", "Concrete Boogie", "Mamacita", and "7th Ave". CD
Also available Sanborn ... CD 6.99
