Solomon BurkeThis Is It – The Apollo Soul Origins ... CD
Apollo/Shout (UK), 1956/1957. New Copy ... $3.99
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.

New Solomon BurkeChess Collection ... CD
Chess (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Most people think of Solomon Burke, and they immediately go to his famous Atlantic recordings of the 60s – but it's a little known fact that Burke worked for Chess Records in the mid 70s – at a time when the label was barely still moving forward, and in a mode that's quite different than most of Solomon's other records! The Burke of the 70s first started out even rootsier than in the 60s – but by the time he reached Chess, Solomon picked up a sweet mellow groove and started to recast his image as a sexy large man – one who's very much in the spirit of Barry White! These sides are pulled from the albums Music To Make Love By and Back To My Roots – both records that pick up a warmer, sweeter, more 70s mellow kind of mode – one that often slinks along at a slowish pace, but sometimes grooves things up a bit for the clubs. Burke sings, but also often speaks – in a deeply seductive voice that's totally great – and the CD is a long-overdue look at these surprisingly great sides! Package features 20 tracks in all – including "All The Way", "You & Your Baby Blues", "Music To Make Love By", "Let Me Wrap My Arms Around You", "Burning For Your Love", "Midnight & You", "Thanks I Needed That", "The Do Right Song", "Over & Over", "I'll Never Stop Loving You", "Love's Paradise", "Life Has Its Ups & Downs", and "Precious Flower".

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 Solomon BurkeI Have A Dream/Midnight & You ... 7-inch
Dunhill/ABC, 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
2 tracks from Solomon's very obscure album on ABC! "I Have A Dream" is a strange one – inspired by MLK, and beginning with a sample from him, which then leads into some drippy chorus vocals before Solomon comes in and strengthens the cut with some better singing. "Midnight & You" is a real winner, though – a slow, sexy number with arrangements by Gene Page – Solomon singing in a style that's clearly inspired by Barry White, but sounding almost extra-dope! 7-inch, Vinyl record

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".

Esther PhillipsRelease Me – Reflections Of Country & Western Greats ... LP
Lenox, 1962. Very Good- ... $11.99
A landmark album – not only for Esther Phillips, who's emerging here as a gifted young lady, very different from her R&B years, but also for the genre of country soul, which was emerging to be one of the most important strands in the new music during the 60s! Esther's not fooling around here – as she's working with Nashville arranger Cliff Parman, and getting backup from the Anita Kerr singers for that true Music City sound. Sounds hokey, sounds like it shouldn't work – but the setting is perfect for Esther's raspy rich tone, and in a way, it forces her to break out even more vocally than she does on other 60s recordings. Titles include "Release Me", "I'd Fight The World", "Am I That Easy To Forget", "I Really Don't Want To Know", "Just Out Of Reach", and "Be Honest With Me". A wonderful album – one that sits perfectly next to work by Solomon Burke, Ray Charles, and Brook Benton. LP, Vinyl record album

OC SmithFor Once In My Life ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Very Good+ ... $1.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing. In beautiful shape!)

Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $14.99
An excellent batch of 25 groovers, all hand-picked from the Atlantic soul catalog with a selection that moves waaaaay past the big ol' hits! 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!

VariousR&B Singles Collection Vol 2 – Outta Sight Red Hot Rhythm & Blues ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
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.

VariousSweet Soul Music 1962 – 28 Scorching Classics ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1962. New Copy ... Mid-August, 2014 (delayed)
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 Mighty SamPapa True Love – The Amy Sessions ... CD
Amy/Sundazed, Mid/Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sam McClain – aka Mighty Sam – was one of the many great southern soul artists who recorded for the Amy label during the late 60s, and like most of those artists, Sam's never gotten his proper due, even though his work is right up there with the best of his generation. This CD finally corrects that error, by bringing together 18 rare tracks by Sam – most of them only available before on singles, and the bulk of which were cut at either Muscle Shoals or Memphis during the height of their glory days in the soul music business. The groove ranges from mellow southern ballads to uptempo numbers with a bit of a Solomon Burke-esque feel. Titles include "Baby Come On Home", "Silent Tears", "Sweet Dreams", "Good Humor Man", "A Stranger to Me", "Badmouthin", "I Just Came To Get My Baby (Out Of Jail)", "When She Touches Me", and "I'm A Man".

New Bobby WomackBW Goes C & W ... LP
United Artists, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
The title sort of says it all – as Bobby Womack goes Country and Western. This was never really much of a surprise to us, though, 'cause we always felt that Bobby had a lil' bit o' country in him all the time, especially in some of his guitar chord changes. The album's a nice batch of tracks with kind of a raspy soulful feel, and it follows nicely in a country soul tradition that includes Solomon Burke and Ray Charles. Titles include "Song Of The Mockingbird", "Tarnished Rings", "Don't Make This The Last Date", "I'd Be Ahead If I Could Quit While I'm Behind", and "I Take It On Home". LP, Vinyl record album

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 ... 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.

New VariousBehind Closed Doors – Where Country Meets Soul ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

New VariousRolling With The Punches – The Allen Toussaint Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

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 VariousPlanter's Club Vol 3 Selected By DJ Samir – The Believer's Edition ... CD
EmArcy (Austria), 1970s/Early 80s. Used ... Out Of Stock
This series is fast becoming one of our favorite collections of 70s soul ever – and it's got a groove that's unlike anything else! The Planter's Club sound is one that's laidback, yet funky – sophisticated and smooth, yet also totally righteous – a great space before the sound of 80s groove came to dominate heavily, and a mellow approach to a soulful dancefloor that was often overlooked during the disco years. Many of the tracks on the collection are by artists that you'll probably recognize, but they're also tunes that you won't know nearly as well – because they're often overlooked gems from full LP sets, and tracks that didn't break big at the time on singles. There's an approach here that's years ahead of its time – and a sound that's slightly in the mode of the Natural High collections on Warner, but somehow deeper overall. Titles include "Star In The Ghetto" by Prince Phillip Mitchell, "Why Can't We Be Lovers" by Coke Escovedo, "You & Your Baby Blues" by Solomon Burke, "I Just Tripped On A Piece Of Your Broken Heart" by Bobby Bland, "In The Mood" by Johnny Taylor, "No Matter Where" by David Ruffin, "Midnight & You" by Barry White, "One Minute From Love" by Marc Sadane, "Hang Tough" by Rockie Robbins, "There You Go" by Edwin Starr, "What You Won't Do For Love" by Roy Ayers, and "Never Gonna Stop" by Linda Clifford.

New VariousSweet Inspiration – The Songs Of Dan Penn & Spooner Oldham ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.
