New Lost GenerationSly, Slick & The Wicked ... LP
Brunswick, 1970. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of the greatest harmony soul albums to ever come out of Chicago – a sublime batch of tracks that showed that the mighty talents of The Lost Generation could easily match the best vocal group work coming out of the east coast at the time! The sound here is somewhere in the moody, mellow territory of early Moments or Whatnauts – tunes that are steeped in older vocal group traditions, but turned towards a more badass mode for the 70s – a style that still keeps some sweet and fragile aspects in tact, but which also has a great undercurrent of darkness too! The group get some great help in the studio here from arranger Tom Washington, bandleader Willie Henderson, and producer Eugene Record – the last of whom was already figuring out how to record vocals wonderfully with his own group, The Chi-Lites. Titles include the group's amazing single "The Sly The Slick & The Wicked" – recorded with an amazing echoey feel that's worth the price of the album alone! Other tracks include a few remakes of tunes from their contemporary harmony competitors – with ttles that include "Love Land", "Love on a Two Way Street", "Someday", "Sorry I Can't Help You", "You're So Young But You're So True", "Wait A Minute", and "Give Me Just a Little More Time".

New VariousSoul In The City ... CD
Glory, 2004. Used ... Out Of Stock
Easily the greatest collection so far on Glory Records – the folks who've brought us the excellent Neo-Soul United series, but who really top themselves with this tasty little set! This time around, the Glory folks go even deeper with their sound – taking the "city" in their title seriously, and expanding past the usual neo-soul grooves, into a wonderfully wide-ranging batch of tracks. The overall commitment to underground soul is still firmly in place – but the styles of the tunes open up nicely to show the full scope of grooves being crafted on the modern urban scene these days – and not just the easy cliches that tend to get passed off on the latest record by the umpteenth soul singer to claim that she used to sing backing vocals for Erykah Badu! The set's got 16 tracks in all – including "Like Rain" by Alison Crockett, "Take My Song" by Freedom Bremmer, "I Love You" by Damon Cooper, "Season To Love" by Jazmine Sullivan, "Obvious" by Stori James, "I Like It" by Josephine Sincere, "Fire" by Heavy, "Building" by Blk Sunshine, "Glorious" by Sa-Ra Creative Partners, and "My Job" by Mia Miata. Also includes a bonus "Supersoul Medley"! CD

New VariousTroubled Waters – Deep Soul From The Deep South ... CD
Grapevine (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of deep soul – featuring rare and unissued tracks by some of our favorite artists of the genre! The set goes way way past the usual collections of southern soul – to bring together obscure singles, album tracks, and rare vault material – going past the obvious mainstream of Memphis and Muscle Shoals, to include some totally incredible material! There's a very sophisticated vibe here overall – almost heading towards the mellow soul of the 70s north, but still recorded with an earthier quality that's steeped in traditions borrowed from gospel, and infused with the best that the secular south had to offer. An impeccable set throughout – as pleasing to any collector of rare soul as it is to a newcomer – with tracks that include "Warm Loving Man" by Carolyn Faye, "Two Wrongs Don't Make It Right" by Patterson Twins, "Troubled Waters" by Sam Dees, "If You See That Girl Of Mine" by Hank Sample, "The Town I Live In" by McKinley Mitchell, "When A Man Cries" by Joe Wilson, "A Quitter Never Wins" by Jimmy Dobbins, "Why Oh Why" by J Count Hughes, "I Won't Be The Last To Cry" by Eddie Houston, "Bluer Than Blue" by Ruby Wilson, and "I Believe In Love" by Billy Cee. 23 tracks in all – with great production and excellent notes!

New VariousTrue Soul Vol 1 – Deep Sounds From The Left Of Stax (CD & DVD) ... CD
Now Again, 1960s/1970s. New Copy CD + DVD ... Out Of Stock
The first volume in Now Again's incredible compilation series for the True Soul label – assembled with the personal participation of the label's owner, Lee Anthony – rare, deep and absolute True Soul and funk from the 60s & 70s catalog of the revered Arkansas indie! It's rare regional funk & soul made under the mightily imposing shadows of southern labels like Stax and Hi Records – but the tunes here are straight up incredible and as ripe for discovery as any music of the era. The label was called True Soul and they don't take that moniker lightly – but it's adventurously soulful, with strains of psychedelic soul and funk, with a bit of southern swagger. Includes "Slipping Around (45 Version)", "Funky Music", "Sister Funk (Original, Full Version)" and "Follow The Rainbow (Alternate Mix)" by Thomas East, a great instrumental cover of "Come Together" by Albert Smith, "Doing My Own Thing" by John Craig, "Funky Football", "Psychedelic Hot Pants (Full Version)" and more by York Wilbern's Psychedelic Six, "Hard Times" by Classic Funk, "I Gotta Move With The Groove" by The Right Track", "The Real Thing" by The Conspiracy and "(It's A) "Rat Race by The Leaders. 14 tracks in all on the CD– including a previously unreleased York Wilborn's Psychedelic Six track. It also comes with a DVD – featuring live footage from a 1973 True Soul Revue television program, and the set is packaged beautifully! The CD & DVD are bound in what's essentially a small hardcover book – a thick, lavishly illustrated one – full of vintage performance, studio and promo photos, discography, deeply felt notes by Eothen Alapatt, plus interviews conducted by Egon. We heard years ago that Now Again was cooking this series up. . .and it was absolutely worth the wait. CD

New VariousWants List 2 – Another 18 Soulful Rare Grooves ... CD
Soul Brother (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing collection of funky nuggets – one that's overflowing with hip soul, funk, and break tracks! The set's the second in a series put together by the staff of London's Soul Brother Records – and like the first, it features some of the most sought-after rare grooves and sample tracks from the 70s – a rich array of titles from a variety of different labels, all collected with a keen ear for the older tracks that are still breaking big well into the 21st Century! And since these guys also run a record store themselves, they've gone way past the obvious – and have chosen an all-essential batch of tunes that aren't easily available on the market, including some killer tracks from major labels that we've been waiting years to see reissued. Titles include "Oops Here I Go Again" by Edna Wright, "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little Bit More" by Kellee Patterson, "Sho Nuff" by Sly Slick & Wicked, "All I Want Is You" by Four Flights, "Live For Love" by GC Cameron, "I Feel So At Home Here" by Michelle Wiley, "Shake It Up" by The Vibrations, "My Music" by Samuel Jonathan Johnson, "Heaven" by Ruth Copeland, "It's Got To Be Mellow (1976)" by Leon Mellow, "Making Room For Love" by Alton McClain & Destiny, and "When We're Makin Love" by Denise LaSalle.
