Contours & Dennis EdwardsJust A Little Misunderstanding – Rare & Unissued Motown 1965 to 1968 ... CD
Motown/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
Just when you think you know everything there is to know about Motown, here comes a set to open your ears and blow your mind all over again! The set unearths a huge amount of rare work by The Contours – the rollicking group who gave Motown a sweet album and handful of singles in the 60s, but who also recorded a lot of other work that was never issued at the time – including a sweet array of tracks that feature a young Dennis Edwards as their lead vocalist! Edwards is best known for his work in the Temptations – but these tracks predate that time, when Dennis was brought in to give fresh focus to the ailing Contours – and lent his strong lead vocals to their massively grooving sound. The package features a whopping 26 tracks – 14 issued here for the first time ever, and a lot more pulled from only collections of rare Motown releases – and titles include "Determination", "I'll Turn To Stone", "I Like Everything About You", "Can't Do Without Your Love", "Come See About Me", "I Grow Deeper In Love Every Day", "Our Last Rendezvous", "Which Way To My Baby", "Need Your Lovin", "What's So Good About Goodbye", "Sunny", and "I'm Here Now That You Need Me".

Isley BrothersMotown Anthology ... CD
Motown (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
A massive amount of Isley Brothers material recorded for Motown – almost more than we ever knew the trio recorded for the label! The 2CD set is filled with hard-hitting gems from these seminal years for the Isleys – a key time when they were turning their rough-edged groove towards some tighter soul ends – really setting the stage for their 70s breakout on T-Neck Records! There's a few familiar classics here, mixed with a motherlode of lesser-known gems – a whopping 52 tracks in all, including some rare mono and stereo mixes too. Titles include "Good Things", "Little Miss Sweetness", "Ain't That Real Satisfaction", "It Moves Me To Tears", "Take Some Time Out For Love", "Who Could Ever Doubt My Love", "Seek & You Shall Find", "Whispers", "One Too Many Heartaches", "It's Out Of The Question", "Save Me From This Misery", "Put Yourself In My Place", "Nowhere To Run", "I Hear A Symphony", "Take Me In Your Arms", "My Love Is Your Love", "How Sweet It Is", "Leaving Here", "Greetings", and lots lots more!

Diana RossRoss (Motown) (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Motown/Culture Factory (France), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
Diana Ross in the sweet clubby 70s – working here in a set of upbeat groovers that really show off her talents as a disco diva! The tunes are mostly upbeat, and surprisingly fresh – not nearly as disco cliched as you might expect, and handled in just the right way to take advantage of Diana's soaring solo vocals. Nothing's ever too overly-postured, and there's no throwaway hits here, either – which makes the album a nice discovery of overlooked Diana Ross gems from the time. Arrangements are by Art Wright, Greg Wright, Jimmie Haskell, Michael Masser, Gene Page, and Paul Riser – and titles include "Lovin Livin & Givin", "Never Say I Don't Love You", "Reach Out I'll Be There", "You Were The One", "To Love Again", and "Together".

Way more than just a "best of" – as the record is more like a full Spinners album for Motown – issued as a way of bringing together some of the best singles the group recorded for the label! The work's not really hits – at least not at the level of the group's later fame on Atlantic – and instead the set is a key illustration of the group's Detroit roots, with a soaring Motown groove mixed with their sublime harmonies – a style that's often forgotten, given their big move to Philly styles in the 70s! The whole thing's great – about as killer as you can get for Motown group soul – and titles include their classic "It's A Shame" – plus "Oooh Child", "Truly Yours", "We'll Have It Made", and "I'll Always Love You".

VariousOur Lives Are Shaped By What We Love – Motown's MoWest Story 1971 to 1973 ... CD
Motown/MoWest/Light In The Attic, Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
The first ever compilation of the best music made for MoWest – the eclectic, but still soulful cuts made when Berry Gordy Jr. relocated from Motown to the west coast in the early 70s – releasing cool and sometimes strange music with a soul background, yet toasted by LA sunshine! The MoWest subsidiary lasted just a few years, and gets overlooked in the canonization of Motown at it's most classic and revolutionary – but the legacy is pretty incredible. Funk, sunshine rock and soul fused adventurously by a stunningly diverse roster – late period Frankie Vallie & The Four Seasons (who's comp-opening track is a slept on sunshine pop-soul classic), breezy-jazzy-soul from Odyssey, the sister funk of Sisters Love, a stunning solo left turn from Spinners singer GC Cameron and more great stuff from Syreeta, The Commodores, Suzee Ikeda, Thelma Houston and others. We've been dying for a well selected MoWest comp like this for years, and Light In The Attic stepped to the plate and knock it right out of the park. The songs choices are great, the notes are great. . .everything about it is a win. Essential! Includes "You're A Song (That I Can't Sing)" and "The Night" by Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, "Our Lives Are Shaped By What We Love" and "Broken Road" by Odyssey, "Don't You Be Worried" by The Commodores, "A Heart Is A House" Nu Page, "I Ain't Going Nowhere" by Thelma Houston, "I Can't Give Back The Love I Feel For You" by Suzee Ikeda, "You've Got To Make The Choice" and "Give Me Your Love" by The Sisters Love and more.

New Brenda HollowayArtistry Of Brenda Holloway – With Bonus Tracks From The Motown Vaults ... CD
Motown/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful collection of work from Brenda Holloway – one that really digs deep to find some overlooked gems from her 60s years at Motown – including 8 previously unissued tracks! The core of the collection features The Artistry Of Brenda Holloway album – a late 60s UK-only recorded issued by Tamla, and one that features rare singles from Holloway that weren't on any other albums – kind of a special overseas package dedicated to those early UK soul fans who helped Motown explode so strongly at a global level. Holloway's vocals are wonderful – as careful a mix of class and soul that you'd find from the best Motown artists of the period – served up at a solo lead level that's only matched by Mary Wells on the label at the time, and which really seems to point the way towards a solo direction that Diana Ross would later take on her own. In addition to the 16 track album, the CD also features 8 more gems from the Motown vaults – making for a set that's all-great, no-filler, and filled with properly finished killers that should have made much bigger waves at the time. Titles include "Together Til The End Of Time", "I'll Be Available", "Hurt A Little Every Day", "Where Were You", "I've Got To Find It", "Operator", "I'll Always Love You", "Just Look What You've Done", "Mr Lifeguard", "After All That You've Done", "The Love Line", "Can't We Be Strangers Again", and "Just Another Lonely Night".

New Imperial WondersMotown Years ... CD
DYOB, Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Previously unreleased work from the west coast Imperial Wonders – work recorded during an early 80s stretch when leader Al Boyd was working at Motown! The sound here is surprisingly great for cuts that stayed in the can for so many decades – just the kind of upbeat, bubbling group soul that Motown would have loved to release at the time – filled with plenty of smooth grooves and well-placed hooks! Al's usually in the lead, still with some of the sweetness of earlier years – and although the mix on the record is a bit rough, that kind of adds a bit of indie charm as well. Titles include "My Mission Is Love", "Jet Set", "Work Of Art", "No Harmony", "Possession", "Sensitivity Session", "Cincerella/Cinderfella", "Once In A Lifetime (parts 1 & 2)", "Mean Ol Miss Treater (part 1)", and "My Mission Is Love".

A marvelous package of work – one that features 6 full albums by The Marvelettes, plus a huge amount of bonus material as well – all done up in beautiful Hip-O Select style, with an excellent booklet of notes! The set does the world a much-needed service, and finally brings these gems back out to the CD market – some amazing records that really helped shape the sound of Motown from the start, given the the group were one of the label's first big acts! The scope of music here is really wonderful – a treasure trove of female group soul recordings that captures The Marvelettes both live and in the studio, presenting some tracks in both mono and stereo versions as well. 3CD set features the full albums Playboy, Please Mr Postman, The Marvelettes Sing, The Marvelous Marvelettes, Live On Stage, and The Marvelettes Greatest Hits – plus bonus material from the Live On Stage sessions, and rare singles as well. 87 tracks in all – a tremendous bargain at any price!

Motown/Hip-O Select, Mid 60s. Used 4CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hefty helping of The Marvelettes – a set that not only shows why the trio was one of Motown's best groups of the 60s, but which also unearths a wealth of previously-unissued material too! The core of the package are a quartet of sublime albums by the girls – The Marvelettes, Sophisticated Soul, In Full Bloom, and The Return Of The Marvelettes – great "second chapter" work that shows the trio really stretching out in the best Motown modes of the mid 60s – hitting grooves that complicate things nicely from the early days, with vocals that are even tighter than before, yet still packed with a hell of a lot of soul as well! Production is wonderful – equally tight, yet never too polished – and the set not only features all tracks from the albums, but also 10 more bonus tracks, and additional full mono LP versions of The Marvelettes and Sophisticated soul – both quite rare! And, if that's not enough, CD 4 features 24 previously-unissued tracks – all Motown vault material from the 60s, with more than enough tracks to make up two more full records by the girls – a huge discovery in 60s soul music, and essential listening, even if you've got their records on vinyl. Unreleased titles include "Johnny Do Right", "Queen Of The Fools", "From Now On", "Three Months", "My Baby Won't Come Back", "Dance A While Cry A While", "I Can't Wait Till Summer Comes", "Why'd You Do It", "Change Of Heart", and "The Train That's Bringing My Baby". 4CDs, 119 tracks, and wonderful packaging too!

A great little package of clubby soul from Motown – 4 12" singles in a box! Though the label wasn't particularly known as a home to disco, they weren't allergic to it either, and fielded their share of nice club friendly tracks throughout the late 70s, and even on through the 80s, though this set features some great highlights from 1978 and 1979. 5 tracks are spread out across 4 12" singles, with a handful of instrumental flip sides, too, and the numbers include both the vocal and instrumental takes of Rick James' "Bustin' Out", vocal and instrumental takes of High Inergy's "Shoulda Gone Dancin'", vocal and instrumental takes of Billy Preston & Syreeta's "Go For It", and "I Just Keep Thinking About You Baby" and "Get Up For Love" by Tata Vega.

Northern soul from the source – over two dozen 60s soul stompers from Motown Records – most of them the kind of underground grooves that have always been prized on the Northern scene! The work here moves past obvious Motown hits, and really shows the kind of hard-burning stormers that set fire to the British all night dance scene in the 60s – music that moved the mods, then continued to help redefine our understanding of soul for decades to come! The set's a treasure trove of gems – some of which would cost you a pretty penny as original singles – and titles include "For The Love Of Mike" by Patrice Holloway, "You Can Do It" by Kim Weston, "Crying In The Night" by The Monitors, "Baby Come Home To Me" by Shorty Long, "Sure Is A Lotta Woman" by The Isley Brothers, "You're Gonna Love My Baby" by Barbara McNair, "I've Been Blessed" by Bobby Taylor, "Look What You Done Boy" by The Lollipops, "I Miss You Baby" by Marv Johnson, and "Keep On Loving Me" by Frances Nero.

New MonitorsSay You – The Motown Anthology 1963 to 1968 (Greetings! We're The Monitors plus previously unissued material and B-Sides) ... CD
Motown/Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A real lost gem from Motown – and a whole lot more! Greetings! We're The Monitors is the only full album ever cut by The Monitors – a 3-man, 1-woman vocal group who were in a popular Motown mixed harmonies mode. The quartet had a wonderfully strong vocal presence – blasting away at most tracks with a strength that groups like The Miracles or Gladys Knight & The Pips could never match – and like those groups, they bridge that key period between late doo wop-oriented harmonies, and tighter 60s group soul. The LP brings together singles the Monitors cut for Motown during the previous few years, but it also works extremely well as a unified album – and it's a refreshing change from some of the oft-heard Motown material. Titles include "Greetings (This Is Uncle Sam)", "Number One In Your Heart", "Bring Back The Love", "Step By Step (Hand In Hand)", and "Baby Make Your Own Sweet Music". This incredible anthologogy from Kent starts off with that album and includes 12 unissued tracks – a whole album's worth – plus 2 B-Sides. Unissued tracks include "Too Busy Thinking About My Baby" , "The Letter", "Poor Side Of Town", "Anything", "Guilty" and more. 26 tracks in all! CD

The collection is a real discovery, even for Motown fans – and the set is filled with gems that go way past the obvious – some real Detroit soul treasures that make the whole thing a delight! Lots of the work is from that key early Motown stretch, when the label was really coming into its own, but still trying out a lot of new ideas too – and as such, were really willing to move past some obvious hit modes of the time. And make no mistake – these cuts aren't leftovers, or half-baked – as all of them have top-shelf production and arrangements – further proof that the Motown approach never dimmed at all. Titles include "Do You Know What I'm Talkin About" by LaBrenda Ben, "Don't Turn Your Back On Me" by Brenda Holloway, "Build Him Up" by Martha & The Vandellas, "Like A Nightmare" by The Andantes, "Dance Yeah Dance" by Thelma Brown, "When Somebody Loves You" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "My Black Belt" by Hattie Littles, "It's Too Soon To Know" by Kim Weston, "I Gotta Right To Sing The Blues" by Liz Lands, "If Wishes Came True" by Anita Knorl, and "So Let Them Laugh At Me" by Linda Griner.

Motown, 2000. Very Good+ 2LP ... $14.99
An incredible debut – and the birth of a genre! India Arie burst upon the Neo Soul scene with this sweet little set a few years back – and her career's been burning up ever since! The set's got all the best elements of some of the best indie soul of recent years – sweet beats, honest vocals, and warm instrumental touches – but the best aspect is the "acoustic soul" use of guitar to give some tracks a slightly folksy feel – one that sets India apart from some of her contemporaries with a really personal approach! The whole thing's great – overflowing with wonderful tracks that include "Video", "Brown Skin", "Back To The Middle", "Part Of My Life", "Always In My Head", and "Nature".

The record's got a personal, intimate quality that's head and shoulders above most of the harder-hitting divas on the charts these days – and although other indie singers have attempted India's sound on their own recent records, Arie shows that she's still one of the few who can get a sound like this right. Gentle guitar and warm vocals float together in perfect tandem throughout the record – and the whole thing has a very cohesive approach that never seems to ruin the groove, even on the few obvious attempts at a hit! Titles include "India Song", "I Am Not My Hair", "Summer", "Good Mourning", "Private Party", "There's Hope", "These Eyes", and "Wings Of Forgiveness". LP, Vinyl record album

Erykah BaduNew Amerykah Part Two (Return Of The Ankh) ... LP
Motown, 2010. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $15.99 17.98
The second chapter of Erykah Badu's New Amerykah – recorded for the most part, quite incredibly, during the same period and with the same collaborators as the mind-altering, murky and righteous hip hop funk experimentalism that was Part One – some months that must be among the most dizzyingly creative in Badu's career! We're reluctant to call Return Of The The Ankh a lighter listen than its predecessor, but, it's a less dense and outwardly experimental batch in the sonic realm – the emotionalism and the head nodding warmth is at the forefront, yet she's as uncompromising and real as ever. The sound is still innovative, unique and her own on all fronts, but the songs chosen for Part Two are ones you want to approach and embrace from the opening seconds – there's not as much of a tripped out overall vibe and you don't need to acclimate from a distance – these songs pull you right in! Includes collaborations with James Poyser, Shafiq Husayn, Ta'Raach, Karriem Riggins, Madlib and Georgia Anne Muldrow. Includes "20 Feet Tall", "Window Seat", "Agitation", "Turn Me Away (Get Munny)", "Gone Baby, Don't Be Long", "Love", "Out My Mind, Just In Time" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Erykah BaduWorldwide Underground ... CD
Motown, 2003. Used ... $3.99
A nice one from Badu – one with a depth of feeling and genuine soulful vibes that live up to its title, despite the fact that she records for one of the world's biggest media conglomerates! It's all about the vibe here. Erykah rolls her syllables, scats and emotes feelings more than an actual narrative in the strongest of these cuts. It's not that she's forgone lyrics; but it's all about the ambience, not radio sing-a-longs. She also dives head first into her organic soul and hip hop hybrid sound a little more sparingly, but still better than any of the ladies that followed her lead after Baduizm. She channels Donald Byrd on the great "Think Twice", which is pretty indicative of the vibe as a whole. The groove is sorta mellow, but in a very tripped-out way, with deep organ washes and synth, scratchy soul guitar, and crisp organic beats. There's an appearance by Dead Prez on "Steady On The Grind", and a really sweet old school flavored remake of the great "Love Of My Life" track from the Brown Sugar soundtrack with Queen Latifah and Bahamadia, but for the most part Erykah is sweating soul on her own spiritual plane here. It's gonna take a little while to sink in, but this may be her best album (despite whatever naysaying BS you may read in mainstream reviews.) Tracks include "Bump It", the great single "Danger", "Woo", "Back In The Day" and "I Want You". CD

Blaze25 Years Later ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1990. New Copy ... $13.99
A fantastic bit of soul and house that was woefully overlooked at the time of its release – and one of our favorite albums of the past 25 years! The Blaze production team had been hitting the underground club scene hard for a few years with their raw New Jersey house singles – then Motown grabbed them in the studio, and had them cut this classic album of soul tracks that pays homage to a set of greats that runs from Leroy Hutson, to Donnie Hathaway, to Norman Harris, and a host of others – all with a sense of soulfulness and depth that goes way past their standard work for the clubs! The dancefloor tracks are great, but the album's also got some wonderfully mellow moments too – with tracks that include "So Special", "We All Must Live Together", "Missing You", and "Get Up". The CD version has the added bonus of being a bit of a "mini-opera" – with spoken bits that have a narrative quality, linking the tracks together in a way that didn't occur with the LP. CD

BloodstoneDon't Stop! ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A great later album from Bloodstone – recorded after their initial classics for London, but in a sweet and mellow soul mode that's totally outta site! Part of the strength of the set is the mighty Al Johnson – who provides arrangements here that push the group firmly into a more modern take on harmony soul, and which have a gentle groove that makes for plenty of sweet steppers and mellow midtempo groovers. The vocals are every bit as great as on the earlier albums – just given a brighter setting in which to shine. Titles include "Just Wanna Get The Feel Of It", "She Wants To Hear The Words", "It's Been A Long Time", "Throw A Little Loving My Way", "It's All Been Said Before", and "Don't Stop". CD

Boyz II MenCooleyhighharmony ... CD
Motown, 1991. Used ... $3.99
A landmark album from Boyz II Men – and a set that shows that the classic harmony style was alive and well into the 90s! Although the production and rhythms here are somewhat contemporary, the vocals have a classic approach all the way through – maturing masculine soul styles that are totally great, and which have aged beautifully over the years – way past the chart-reaching cliches of other groups of the time, and well deserving of attention as a great later Motown moment! Most production is by Dallas Austin – who structured the album beautifully into "adagio" and "allegro" sections – and titles include "Please Don't Go", "Lonely Heart", "Little Things", "Motownphilly", "Under Pressure", "Sympin", "It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday", and "Uhh Ahh".

A lot more folksy than any other work on Motown from the 70s – and proof that the label was getting more and more influenced by their new LA setting – but a nice sampling of mellow tracks, with a definite Free Soul bent. In a way, Brown's style is similar to that of Jose Feliciano in the 70s – with warm electric production backing up mellow pop/rock lyrics and acoustic guitar. Titles include "Love Song", "Do Magnolia Do", "Love Notes From Denver", "Cooking School", and "More Dreams In The Sea". LP, Vinyl record album

Motown (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
A great easy groover from early 70s Motown! Severin Browne's the brother of Jackson Browne – and as such, is more of a mellow rock artist than a soul artist – but this album's got a sweet soul vibe in the mix, and is a surprisingly nice release from Motown's early LA years! In a way, you can hear a James Taylor-ish influence in Browne's vocalizing and guitar work, but the backing behind him is more in the smooth LA studio style – a bit like that used on the 70s work of Jose Feliciano or Nick DeCaro. The songs are surprisingly wonderfully crafted – and to discover Browne's work is to tap into the lost career of a under-recognized 70s singer/songwriter. Titles include "Darling Christina", "Snowflakes", "Sister", "Not Quite Time", "Skip Tune", and "Just A Matter Of Time". CD

The album hits perfectly on both sides of the group's strengths – the tight ensemble funk on which they were raised, and some of the sweeter aspects that were showing up as Lionel Richie emerged as the solo male singing star – not nearly as cheesy here as in later years, and a surprisingly nice element to offset the heavier funk. Titles include the funky classic "Brick House", the mellow hit "Easy", and the cuts "Squeeze The Fruit", "Zoom", "Funky Situation", "Won't You Come Dance With Me", "Funny Feelings", "Heaven Knows", and "Patch It Up".

Lots of Midnight Magic from The Commdores – still nice and funky at the start of the evening, but also chilling out in the wee hours too – really finding a great way to follow the trajectory of the night with the tracks in this set! The album sparkles with strong arrangements and production from James Carmichael – who furthers the vibe perfected on Natural High, yet continues to avoid most of the cliches that would slow down the group in later years. Lionel Richie's given room to step forth on the ballads "Still" and "Sail On" – but the group feel is still nicely maintained on the rest of the record – which also features the tracks "Getting It", "You're Special", "Wonderland", "Sexy Lady", and "Might Magic".

Motown/PTG (Netherlands), 1975. New Copy ... $18.99
A killer early set from The Commodores – and exactly the kind of record that shows why the group was so great at the start! Long before they were the giants of adult pop, the group were a tight funk act who were able to really balance mellow moments with more full-on grooves – a quality that meant they could slide into a warm harmony soul number at one point, then boom the bass right out of the box the next – all with a quality that at this point was light years ahead of most of their contemporaries! There's lots of modes here that other groups would cop more strongly in years to come – but the album's still better than any others that tried to imitate its strengths – thanks to classic cuts like "Hold On", "Free", "(Can I) Get A Witness", "Sweet Love", "Mary Mary", and "Gimme My Mule" – as well as the great spacey instrumental "Cebu", which has an excellent moogy Dexter Wansel-ish vibe! That cut alone is a major discovery for anyone who doesn't know the group at this point – and will show you that they can be totally hip when they want. CD

James Carmichael arranges and produces here – really helping the group to find that key focus, and make some important use of the vocals of Lionel Richie. Mr R steps out strongly on the crossover hit "Three Times A Lady" – but the whole group more than holds their own on the funky killers "X Rated Movie", "Fire Girl", and "I Like What You Do" – as well as the great mellow groover "Say Yeah".

By this point in their career, The Commodores have lost Lionel Richie and any sort of funk credibility they had from their early years – but they also somehow manage to reemerge with a great new talent for a sweet mellow groove! The title tune "Nightshift" was one of those tracks that crossed over massively at the time – but to our ears, it also kind of redeemed the group too – as it's got a surprisingly soulful quality that really got the group past the soppiness of their ballads and love songs – gliding along with an almost-righteous quality that makes it a nice later cap to an earlier Motown 70s groove. Other tunes on the album don't always fare as well, but there's still some nice moments here – tunes that benefit from some Dennis Lambert production and hit just the right kind of mellow groove to follow up on the spirit of the single. Tracks include "Nightshift", "Slip Of The Tongue", "Lay Back", "Lightin Up The Night", and "The Woman In My Life". LP, Vinyl record album

A heck of a lot nicer than we remember, and pretty great all the way through – with tracks that include "I Like It", "I'll Never Fall In Love Again", "All This Love", "I'm In Love With You", "Can't Stop", "It's Getting Stronger", and "Life Begins With You".

Motown, 1978. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
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". CD

An amazing record that stunned the world almost as much as Marvin's previous effort, What's Going On. Like that one, this album's an amazingly unified batch of tracks – with a visionary message about sex and love that is as honest and bracing as the politics and social commentary of his previous record. The record shows a sexy side of Marvin that would stun fans of his 60s work – very adult, very warm, and very preoccupied with desire and love. In a way, this sort of full-on love fest was a big payoff for all the folks who'd hung onto his simpler expressions of affection in the earlier years – sort of like getting let into the bedroom after spending years on the front porch! The record was produced by both Marvin and Ed Townsend – and the arrangements by David Van DePitte, Rene Hall, and Gene Page are smooth and seductive all the way through.

A backing chorus supports Marvin over the small combo backings, but the whole thing's recorded so that Gaye's very firmly in the lead – on cuts that include "Mojo Hanna", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "One Of These Days", "Stubborn Kind Of Fellow", "Pride & Joy", "Hitch Hike", and "Get My Hands On Some Lovin".

A posthumous masterpiece from Marvin Gaye – a beautiful album of mellow ballads that's unlike anything else he ever recorded in the 70s! The project was originally begun in 1967, when Gaye worked with arranger Bobby Scott on charts for a series of adult ballads – arrangements that were more mature and sophisticated than some of the previous standards and ballads that Gaye cut for Motown – with a track selection to match. The notes here are a bit vague on dates, but it seems that this final release of the project is compiled from original sessions from the time, and later vocal performances from the 70s – a really compelling blend of sounds, and one that has the aging Marvin sounding really amazing – all of the sex and sophistication of the What's Going On/I Want You generation, but presented with a bit more subtlety. A true treasure all the way through – with titles that include "Why Did I Choose You", "She Needs Me", "This Will Make You Laugh", "Funny Not Much", "I Wish I Didn't Love You So", "I Won't Cry Any More", and "The Shadow Of Your Smile".

One of the few cases in the history of pop music where the record is worth all the hype! Marvin blew everyone's mind when he unleashed this amazing suite of political soul tunes – not only just because he'd moved past the simple love songs of earlier years, but also because he was working with an amazingly complicated approach to soul music, one that would touch the work of others for years to come. David Van DePitte arranged and conducted the whole album – with soaring orchestrations mixed with smooth modern soul, in a style that reminds us a lot of the work of Charles Stepney at Cadet, who'd been doing this sort of thing for years but with less success. In the hands of Marvin Gaye, though, the material has an amazing quality – and all the disparate elements of the album are fused together in one powerful message by Marvin's incredible voice. One that we never tire of, and a record to be listened to all the way through every time. Titles include "What's Goin On", "Save The Children", "Flyin High (In The Friendly Sky)", "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)", and "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)". CD

Finis HendersonFinis ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $13.99
A sweet 80s classic from Finis Henderson – and the kind of record that should have launched him on a much bigger run as a lead singer! Despite the plastic look of the cover, the album's really solidly put together – produced by Al McKay with a vibe that definitely echoes his work with Earth Wind & Fire, and a style that also shows some of Henderson's roots in the Chicago group Weapons Of Peace – which means lots of jazzy inflections with the grooves, in a style that works perfectly for Finis' style of singing. And given that Henderson has a range that sometimes hits Philip Bailey territory, the match is a great one – and gives the album a sense of class that other Motown soul from the time didn't always have. Titles include "Lovers", "Making Love", "Skip To My Lou", "Vina Del Mar", "Crush On You", "I'd Rather Be Gone", and "You Owe It All To Love". CD

A pretty darn amazing album from Thelma Houston – recorded during the zenith of Jimmy Webb's career, when Jimmy was not only one of the hippest songwriters in pop, but also kind of a mini-Burt Bacharach, writing, arranging, and conducting albums for a variety of stars. This little gem features Thelma fronting a set of 11 original tunes by Jimmy – arranged with a hip pop sophistication that few other talents of his time could match – soul and strings coming together in a wonderful swirl that makes for one of Thelma's most compelling records. Titles include "Mixed Up Girl", "This Is Where I Came In", "Pocketful Of Keys", "Cheap Lovin", "This Is Your Life", "If This Was The Last Song", and "Sunshower". CD

Motown, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A monster! Foxy Brown is Willie Hutch's magnificent soundtrack for Foxy Brown – a Pam Grier blacksploitation film from the early 70s – and it's pure genius all the way through, a record filled with some of the best funky soundtrack cuts of the era! Willie's got a real Curtis Mayfield sound here – with a dope mixture of full orchestrations and heavy funk, guitar riffing away as drums snap tightly across the album's best rhythms! Includes the classic funky numbers "Ain't That Mellow Mellow" and "Give Me Some of that Good Old Love" – plus "Whatever You Do", "Foxy Lady", "You Sure Know How To Love Your Man", "Theme Of Foxy Brown", "Out There", and "Chase".

CD reissue of Willie Hutch's classic score about pimpin' & mackin'! The album (and film) is virtually a handbook for junior grade hoods, and we can remember back around 1990, when the first wave of candy-ass hardcore hip hoppers were coming up, this was sort of a holy grail. And it still holds up nicely, despite the legions of Compton wanna-bes who've overplayed it to death – with classic cuts like "Brothers Gonna Work It Out", "Vampin", "Theme Of The Mack", "Mack's Stroll/The Getaway", and "Slick". 80's pressing with a different cover.

One of the nicer Willie Hutch albums on Motown – a killer batch of heavy and funky tracks that evoke some of his soundtrack work from the same time – as well as a more hard grooving album-oriented approach! Willie arranged and produced, and there's lots of nice moogy and guitary bits – plus sweet backup chorus vocals and a few more soaring elements – making this one a cool mix of grittier grooves, stranger textures and a few softer touches. Titles include "Get Ready For The Get Down", "Don't You Let Nobody Tell You How To Do Your Thing", "I'm Gonna Stay", "Mark Of The Beast", "Woman You Touched Me" and "Life's No Fun Living In the Ghetto".

The record's got more of a vocal focus than some of Willie's other albums – and his rich voice is perfectly set up in some sweet and soulful arrangements that have a full sound and a classy finish, but still a raw edge that keeps things exciting. Willie arranged and produced the whole thing, again proving that he was one of the freshest talents at Motown during the 70s. Includes the Little Beaver-esque dope guitar cut "Ode To My Lady", plus "Party Down", "Love Power", "Talk To Me", "(I'm Gonna) Hold On", "You Gotta Give Love Up", and "Love Me Back". CD

Michael Jackson strikes out on his own, and does a pretty darn nice job! The overall sound is prime Motown pop soul – with some very very tight arrangements by Gene Page, The Corporation, and James Carmichael – but there's also a bit more depth here too, an attempt to give Michael even more feeling than in the group with his brother – quite a surprise for such a young solo act! Tracks have a pretty good groove to them – apart from the ballad title cut, "Ben" – and other titles include "What Goes Around Comes Around", "Everybody's Somebody's Fool", "My Girl", "In Our Small Way", "You Can Cry On My Shoulder", and a version of "People Make The World Go Round".

Early Michael Jackson at his best – a brilliant solo album that sparkles with honest warmth and sweet soul energy! There's a gentleness to the tunes that's quite striking, but never childish – a simple and effective approach to the material that's sung in a manner that's years beyond Michael's young age – produced to perfection by The Corporation, with lots of great 70s soul touches. Titles include nice versions of "Ain't No Sunshine", "Got To Be There", and "I Wanna Be Where You Are" – plus the nice Willie Hutch tune "Girl, Don't Take Your Love From Me", and the unfortunate novelty cut "Rockin Robin".

Jackson 5Dancing Machine/Moving Violation (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Motown, 1974/1975. Used ... $12.99
2 Jackson 5 classics on one CD! Dancing Machine contains some excellent later work by the Jacksons, featuring a shift from their earlier pop material, into a great style that was a bit more baroque, and which yielded some very nice moments. The album includes the funky pre-disco "Dancing Machine", a perennial favorite – but the real treats are the cuts "The Mirrors Of My Mind" and the haunting "I Am Love", an beautiful symphonic soul track with a sound that still blows us away! On Moving Violation the boys are expanding their sound with the club-oriented grooves of the time – using Holland, Dozier, and Holland on many cuts, trying for a similar strident groove as some of the trio's work on their own Invictus label. The move's actually a great one – as the maturing group has a strong adult harmony sound, the one that they would lean on more heavily during their years as The Jacksons, and which calls for much smoother arrangements than before. The record's got a strident righteous sound – and titles include "Forever Came Today", "Moving Violation", "You Were Made Especially For Me", "Honey Love", "Body Language", "All I Do Is Think Of You", and "Breezy". CD also contains 2 bonus tracks – "Through Thick & Thin" and "Forever Came Today" – for a total of 20 tracks in all! CD

Jackson 5Diana Ross Presents The Jackson 5 ... LP
Motown, 1969. Very Good ... $11.99
The fantastic first record from the Jackson 5 – and very much the stuff of legend all the way through! The tracks feature a number of tunes sung previously by other artists – but the quintet are already at a level that really transforms the material – not just through their unified sense of soulful harmonies, but especially from the breakout leads – which have a fresh, vibrant style that's really unlike any soul group that ever came before – especially when the young Michael steps forth, and shows us he's one hell of a charmer! Production is from Bobby Taylor and The Corporation – and the former definitely brings in some of the deeper, headier tones you'd hear in his music – one more aspect that really keeps the record from being just a kiddie soul novelty – and which instead makes it a truly lasting Motown gem! Titles include the always-wonderful "I Want You Back", one of those tunes that we've heard a million times, but still love to death – plus the tracks "Nobody", "Chained", "Born To Love You", "Stand", "My Cherie Amour", and "Standing In The Shadows of Love". Hell, even their version of "Zip A Dee Doo Dah" is pretty darn great! LP, Vinyl record album
