Solomon BurkeElectronic Magnetism/Bridge Of Life ... 7-inch
MGM, Early 70s. Very Good+ .... $2.99
Amazing soul from Solomon Burke – one of his greatest recordings of the post-Atlantic years! "Electronic Magnetism" is warm, sweet southern soul – done with sublime arrangements that rise up on gentle guitars and just a bit of strings – but which take all their power from the rich country soul of Solomon's magnificent vocals! The man's never sounded better – and the single's got a sense of adult, mature love that shows a whole new side of his career! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Solomon BurkeThis Is It – The Apollo Soul Origins ... CD
Apollo/Shout (UK), 1956/1957. New Copy .... $6.99
Deep early soul from the great Solomon Burke – singles that he cut in NYC for the Apollo label in 1956 & 1957! Some of Burke's best work here is done in a soul stirringly intimate ballad setting – brimming with real soul – and the intensity comes through in Burke's vocals and in the nicely restrained arrangements. Other tunes are in more of a jump blue mode, and there are a few gospel soul tunes, too – all of it quite wonderful! Titles include "I'm All Alone", "I'm In Love", "Why Do Me That Way", "No Man Walks Alone", "You Can Run But You Can't Hide", "A Picture Of You", I Need You Tonight", "This Is It", "For You And You Alone", "You Are My One Love", "They Always Say", "Don't Try", "My Heart Is A Chapel" and more.

Gene Page/Solomon BurkeCool Breeze – Original Soundtrack ... LP
MGM, 1972. Sealed (reissue).... $13.99
Gene Page and Solomon Burke did the music for this obscure blacksploitation film starring Raymond St. Jacques – and although it's not the greatest funky soundtrack you can buy, it's got more than its share of nice moments! There's a bunch of nice instrumentals by Page that are kind of in a mode that's expanded from his work on Blacula, plus a few vocal cuts by Solomon in his "transitional" phase that feature him trying for a hipper sound than on his earlier Atlantic albums. Cuts include "Cool Breeze", "Icbyatht W.T.?", "The Bus", "Fight Back", and "Then I Want To Come Home" – and there's more than a few funky moments to make this one worth while! LP, Vinyl record album

New Solomon BurkeKing Of Rock N Soul (aka Rock 'N Soul) ... LP
Atlantic, 1964. New Copy (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Genius work from Solomon Burke – the kind of all-out, no-nonsense soul album that made Atlantic Records one of the strongest forces in the genre during the 60s! If you've ever bought one of Solomon's weaker recent albums, you owe it to yourself to check this one out – as it's a brilliant batch of tunes, 12 in all, with not a dud in the lot! The vocals are incredible, production is sublime, and the style is a teetering blend of country, gospel, R&B, and soul – never duplicated so well again on wax. Titles include "Can't Nobody Love You", "Goodbye Baby", "Cry To Me", "If You Need Me", "Just Out Of Reach", "You're Good For Me", "Someone To Love Me", and the incredible "He'll Have To Go".

New Chuck JacksonNeeding You Wanting You ... LP
All Platinum, 1975. Near Mint- .... $2.99
Groovy album that Chuck Jackson recorded with the All Platinum gang, and with a sound that gives him a nice update into the 70s. It's a bit like the Solomon Burke album recorded with the same group at the same time, except that this one's got a few tracks that are obvious up-tempo attempts to cash in on disco. Still, the slow cuts are great, and Chuck's voice is in fine, fine form. Tracks include "Love Lights", "Might As Well Take My Time", "Beautiful Woman", and the title cut. LP, Vinyl record album

Percy MayfieldWeakness Is A Thing Called Man ... LP
RCA, 1970. Very Good+ .... $13.99
Dynamite stuff – and one of a few excellent comeback albums recorded by Percy Mayfield in his later years! The record really moves past Percy's blues roots – into territory that has some stronger elements of modern sounds, yet which also still preserves all the soulfulness of his vocals. Arrangements are by Joe James, and in a way, the album's got the mixed blues and soul approach of work from the time by Bobby Bland or Solomon Burke. Titles include "The Flirt", "Brotherhood Week", "Minden Is A Dry Town", "Weakness Is A Thing Called Man", "California Blues", "Lonely For My Baby", and "I've Got A Secret" – plus the funky groover "Daddy Wants You To Come On Home".

New OC SmithFor Once In My Life ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Near Mint- .... $4.99
Pretty darn great work from OC Smith – on of his biggest albums for Columbia! OC's working in a country soul mode that draws on a tradition shared by Solomon Burke, Joe Tex, Ray Charles, and others – turning the genre towards a more pop-driven version of country, the kind that was creeping into the crossover charts at the end of the 60s. The style's one that might have you suspicious, but it comes off surprisingly well – thanks to arrangements by the always-great HB Barnum, the man who brought a syncopated groove to some of Lou Rawls' best work in the late 60s – his Capitol sides with David Axelrod! The feel here is a bit rootsier, but still has that nice Barnum bounce underneath – and titles include "Wichita Lineman", "I Ain't The Worryin' Kind", "The Best Man", "Stormy", "Cycles", "Keep On Keepin On", "Isn't It Lonely Together", and "Promises".

VariousBehind Closed Doors – Where Country Meets Soul ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy .... $14.99
A stellar collection of country soul by many of the greatest voices of any strain of soul music – Solomon Burke, Esther Phillips, Al Green, Bettye Swann, Percy Sledge, Little Milton, Candi Stanton and many more! A healthy portion of the material comes from the late 60s and early 70s – recordings that bring a depth of genuine soul to songs written or popularized by artists more often associated with the country charts. That said, it's soul music all the way – showing both the dexterity of these great soul singers and the adaptability of the such great songs. Includes "Detroit City" by Arthur Alexander, "He'll Have To Go" by Solomon Burke, "Take Time To Know Her" by Percy Sledge, "I Saw Me" by Esther Phillips, "Hangin' On" by Ann Peebles, "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" by Al Green, "Behind Closed Doors" by Little Milton, "Set Me Free" by Clarence Carter, "Yours, Love" by Joe Simon, "She Even Woke Me Up To Say Goodbye" by Brook Benton and more.

VariousBlame It On The Dogg – A Southern Blues & Soul Compilation Vol 2 ... CD
Essential, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy .... $14.99
A huge amount of work produced and presented by the legendary Swamp Dogg – a hell of a great deep soul singer in his own right – but a talent who also helped so many other artists in the 60s and 70s! The range of talents here is really surprising – not just the tight roster of deep soul singers we usually associate with the Dogg's productions – but some bigger names we never realized worked with him at all, and a range of lesser-known talents who really get a lot of grit in their grooves from his studio work and songwriting. Titles on this second volume include "Keep On Dancing" by The Commodores, "Turn My World Around" by Brooks O'Dell, "Bump The Donkey" by Guitar Shorty, "Just Loving You" by Ruby Andrews, "Boogie Truck" by Nat Cross, "He's Gone" by Patti Labelle & The Bluebells, "It's So Nice" by Arthur Conley, "Sidewalks Fences & Walls" by Solomon Burke, "I Want To Sleep With You" by Ruth Brown, and "If She's Your Wife" by Bette Williams.

VariousCan You Dig It? – The Music & Politics Of Black Action Films 1968 to 1975 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD .... $24.99
Possibly the best-ever collection of blacksploitation grooves we've ever seen – a really comprehensive package that not only manages to cover the classics, but which also digs deep enough to come up with lots of fresh bits too! The set really sets a new level for the Soul Jazz label – and is carried off with enough authority towards Black Action films as the label's legendary efforts towards a host of less mainstream genres – truly an achievement for the label's crew, not to mention a heavier bonus for our funky listening pleasure! There's way more here than just a slapped-together batch of tunes from the early 70s – as the set's very carefully put together to showcase a wide range of sounds, along with notes that really get at the social and political power of both the music and the films. 2CD package features a massive color booklet inside the slipcase – and features 34 tracks that include "Shaft In Africa" by Johnny Pate, "Down & Out In New York City" by James Brown, "Wilford's Gone" by The Blackbyrds, "Run Fay Run" by Isaac Hayes, "Theme From Black Belt Jones" by Dennis Coffey, "Willie Chase" by JJ Johnson, "T Plays It Cool" by Marvin Gaye, "Charley" by Don Costa, "Brother's Gonna Work It Out" by Willie Hutch, "Blacula" by Gene Page, "Theme From Cleopatra Jones" by Joe Simon, "Pursuit Of The Pimpmobile" by Isaac Hayes, "Sweetback's Theme" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Aragon" by Roy Ayers, "Strung Out" by Gordon Staples, "Easin In" by Edwin Starr, "The Bus" by Solomon Burke & Gene Page, "Make A Resolution" by The Impressions, "Ed & Digger" by Cotton Comes To Harlem, "Las Vegas Strut" by Jack Ashford, "Lay It On Your Head" by Don Julian, and "Zombie March" by Nat Dove & The Devils.

VariousRolling With The Punches – The Allen Toussaint Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy .... $14.99
Heavy funk, deep soul, and lots lots more – an amazing testament to the songwriting skills of New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint! Allen was a heck of a singer on his own – but he also worked plenty behind the scenes in the 60s and 70s – lending his tunes to many others, and producing a good number of recordings as well – some of the best of which are featured in this sweet little set! The package features two dozen smoking tunes from the pen of Toussaint – songs that are heavy on influences from New Orleans soul and funk – already sounding great in the hands of other soul singers in the collection, and really helping transform the style of other artists in ways you might not expect. The whole thing's got the same righteous vibe as Allen's best records from the 70s – and titles include "I'll Be Rolling" by Millie Jackson, "Hercules" by Boz Scaggs, "Occapella" by Lee Dorsey, "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by Solomon Burke, "Sweet Touch Of Love" by Irma Thomas, "Sneakin Sally Thru The Alley" by Robert Palmer, "What Do You Want The Girl To Do" by Lowell George, "Shoo Rah" by Frankie Miller, "Fortune Teller" by Benny Spellman, "Freedom For The Stallion" by Bill Medley, "Whoever's Thrilling You" by ZZ Hill, "Tampin" by The Rhine Oaks, "A Certain Girl" by Warren Zevon, and even "Southern Nights" by Glen Campell.

VariousSweet Inspiration – The Songs Of Dan Penn & Spooner Oldham ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy .... $14.99
A treasure trove of wonderful tunes – all written by the legendary southern soul team of Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham! The pair rarely entered the spotlight themselves, but contributed countless compositions that helped forge the sound of southern soul in the 60s – classic tunes that made the music of Memphis and Muscle Shoals even more mighty than anyone might have expected – thanks to a depth of feeling, sensitivity of emotion, and a trademark undercurrent of sadness that really helped the music set a new level at the time! This collection is the first to really do justice to the full range of the Penn/Oldham catalog – a beautiful batch of soul singles from a variety of different 60s labels – laid out back to back, in a breathtaking tapestry of soulful music. Titles include "Feed The Flame" by Ted Taylor, "Take Me" by Solomon Burke, "I'm Your Puppet" by Dionne Warwick, "Out Of Left Field" by Percy Sledge, "Cry Like A Baby" by Arthur Alexander, "It Tears Me Up" by Jeanne Newman, "I Met Her In Church" by Tony Borders, "I Need Someone" by The Wallace Brothers, "In The Same Old Way" by Arthur Conley, "Let It Happen" by James Carr, "Are You Never Coming Home" by Sandy Posey, and "I Worship The Ground You Walk On" by Etta James.

Miss Betty, Late 60s. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
"I Can't Sleep" is a stone cold soul ballad cut – with a deep deep deep sound, and a performance by Billy that would put the best of the 60s soul greats to shame. The cut moves in a slow bluesy way, and Billy wails with a style that's part James Brown, part Solomon Burke, and part Otis Redding. Very nice! 7-inch, Vinyl record

This is the kind of stuff that we die to find on funky 45s – only if we're lucky! Titles include "Walking Up A One Way Street" by Willie Tee, "At The Club" by The Drifters, "It Ain't What You Got" by Jimmy Hughes, "Help Me Get The Feeling" by Ray Sharpe, "Some Other Guy" by Richie Barrett, "I'm Gonna Run Away From You" by Tami Lynn, "Que Sera Sera" by The High Keys, "Keep Lookin" by Solomon Burke, and the amazing "Some Kind Of Wonderful" by Soul Brothers Six, a monster track that is worth the price of the CD alone!

New VariousMore Dirty Laundry – The Soul Of Black Country Vol 2 ... CD
Trikont (Germany), 1960s/1970s. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful follow-up to the first Dirty Laundry collection – and like that one, a killer collection of country soul from the 60s and 70s! The package does a get job of pulling together tunes from disparate sources – material recorded both in the south, and in other parts of the US – all of which represents a real "bubbling under" of country-influenced soul from back in the day. The track selection is extremely thoughtful, and doesn't just include the few bigger names from the genre – like Bobby Womack or Joe Tex – but a surprising array of other singers who didn't always record this way, but who turn in some really great entries. Notes are extensive, and in both German and English, and the CD features 24 tracks that include "She Thinks I Still Care" by Lou Johnson, "Touch Your Woman" by Margie Joseph, "Hell Yes I Cheated" by Johnny Adams, "A Gift For You" by Eric Mercury, "Honky Tonk Heaven" by Stoney Edwards, "He'll Have To Go" by Solomon Burke, "Point Of No Return" by Bobby Womack, "I'm Movin On" by Clyde McPhatter, "Pardon Me I've Got Someone To Kill" by Andre Williams, "Three Hearts In A Tangle" by James Brown, "Son Of Hickory Holler Tramp" by OC Smith, "Tennessee Waltz" by Ruth Brown, and "Smoke Smoke Smoke" by Sammy Davis Jr. CD

New VariousR&B Singles Collection Vol 2 – Outta Sight Red Hot Rhythm & Blues ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Blazing R&B, slightly more simmering soul, and some rollicking wildcard tunes that split the difference – all on this fantastic second volume in the R&B Singles series from Outta Sight! It's a great collection, culled mostly from the fertile early 60s period when the sound was still strongly rooted in mid-to-late 50s rhythm & blues, yet beginning to lay the groundwork for gritty southern soul and tighter Northern Soul sounds to come. A nice mix of legendary names and lesser known stars alike, with 30 great tracks in all: "Feelin' Kind A Lonesome" by Willie J Charles with Lionel Hampton, the eternally amazing "Cry To Me" by Solomon Burke", "Earthquake" by Roy Hamilton, "Come On Baby" by Marie Knight, "The Snake" by Oscar Brown Jr, "How Many More Times" by HB Barnum, "Shake It Up And Go" by John Lee Hooker, "A Three Dollar Bill" by Beverly Ann Gibson, "I See Your Face" by Joe Simon, "Betty Mae" by Rodger Green and more.
