New Solomon BurkeKing Of Rock N Soul (aka Rock 'N Soul) ... LP
Atlantic, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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 Solomon BurkeProud Mary – The Bell Sessions ... CD
Bell/Sundazed, 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Solomon's most famously known for his Atlantic recordings of the 60s – but immediately after working for that label, when his soul vibe was still quite strong, Solomon cut some great little sides for the Bell label in Muscle Shoals. The approach used was actually a bit rootsier than that on some of Solomon's Atlantic sides, and production on most of the cuts is by Solomon and Tamiko Jones. This CD brings together cuts from Solomon's one LP on Bell, plus 6 bonus cuts that feature him singing some pretty interesting material – done in that style he used in late Atlantic years that made even suspicious cuts sound pretty darn nice! Much of the material is cover versions of tracks – but apart from the hard-to-hear "Proud Mary" (a track that always seems a bit tired from the perspective of this generation), there's lots of nice numbers that bring out this style, like "In The Ghetto", "Change Is Gonna Come", "Uptight Good Woman", "What Am I Living For", "Please Send Me Someone To Love", "These Arms Of Mine", "Don't Wait Too Long", and "That Lucky Old Sun". 17 tracks in all.

New Solomon BurkeThis Is It – The Apollo Soul Origins ... CD
Apollo/Shout (UK), 1956/1957. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

Millie JacksonLoving Arms – The Soul Country Collection ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $14.99
Classic country soul from Millie Jackson – plus a brand new song as well – all served up in a set that shows yet another side of this legendary singer! Millie's known both for her weepy sad songs of the early years, and her bitchy blues of later ones – but during the 70s, she also cut a fair bit of country-tinged tunes as well – done in a similar space as other southern soul singers like Joe Tex, Solomon Burke, or Joe Simon! The styles vary nicely, though – not just the straight blend of country roots and soulful inflections you'd hear in the 60s – as some of the tracks are from later years, and bring in some modern soul to the mix – nicely expanding the sound. A few titles are duets with Isaac Hayes – and titles include "Angel In Your Arms", "Rose Colored Glasses", "Sweet Music Man", "Cheatin Is", "You Needed Me", "Pick Me Up On Your Way Down", and "Standing In Your Line" – plus the brand new track "Black Bitch Crazy".

OC SmithFor Once In My Life ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Very Good+ ... $0.99
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".

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.

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 Soul Music 1962 – 28 Scorching Classics ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1962. New Copy ... $19.99 28.98
A massive batch of music – and almost as worth it for the overall package as it is for the great tunes inside! Like other volumes in this series, this set is beautifully put together – not only stuffed with an amazing array of classic soul from a key year in the 60s – but also done with a full color booklet that's over 60 pages long – filled with track-by-track notes on the tunes, and filled with great photos, images, and historical data! The whole thing's a perfect soul music time capsule – with the depth of production that we've always loved in Bear Family releases for other genres. Titles include "Playboy" by The Marvelettes, "Night Train" by James Brown, "Cry To Me" by Solomon Burke, "I Know" by Barbara George, "I Found A Love" by The Falcons, "You Better Move On" by Arthur Alexander, "Release Me" by Esther Phillips, "Chains" by The Cookies, "I've Got A Woman (part 1)" by Jimmy McGriff, "I Need Your Lovin" by Don Gardner & Dee Dee Ford, "Snap Your Fingers" by Joe Henderson, and "Green Onions" by Booker T & The MGs.

New VariousCan You Dig It? – The Music & Politics Of Black Action Films 1968 to 1975 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

EmArcy (Austria), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A genius collection of smooth soul tunes – hand-picked by DJ Samir, and featuring some really righteous numbers from a variety of 70s albums! There's a sound here that goes deeper than usual – one that moves past the obvious, into a realm of tunes that are mellow, but which also have a smoothly funky undercurrent too – a groove that's sophisticated, and which often brings some hipper themes into the mix. There's loads of numbers here that are some of our favorite overlooked 70s soul tunes – and titles include "Too Little In Common" by Randy Brown, "Love On" by The Dells, "I Can Sho Give You Love" by Willie Hutch, "Virgin Man" by Smokey Robinson, "Feelin Something" by Ronn Matlock, "Leave My World" by Johnn Bristol, "Can I Touch You There" by Leon Ware, "You're What's Missing In My Life" by GC Cameron, "Use Me But Leave My Mind Alone" by Solomon Burke, "True Love" by Ed Townsend, "A Case Of Too Much Lovemakin" by Gloria Scott, and "The World Is Rated X" by Marvin Gaye.

New VariousR&B Singles Collection Vol 2 – Outta Sight Red Hot Rhythm & Blues ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... 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.
