New Tyrone DavisCan I Change My Mind ... LP
Dakar, 1969. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
The debut album from Tyrone Davis – a supreme achievement for the Chicago soul scene of the late 60s, and a record with a sound that would set the standard for years to come! Tyrone had been bumping around as a blusier singer before this set – but here, working with arrangements by Don Myrick and Willie Henderson, he gets a sound that's sweet and soaring – taking a rough-spirited soul, and recasting it in a sweeter sound for the 70s. Tyrone's not lapsing into bluesy cliches here, and instead keeps things wonderfully soulful by hitting a loping groove that picks up his beat and gives the songs a nice lilt. You can hear this to best effect on the title track "Can I Change My Mind", but all tracks are great – including "She's Looking Good", "Call On Me", "Open The Door To Your Heart", and "Have You Ever Wondered Why?".

Tyrone DavisHow Sweet It Is – The Columbia Hit Singles 1976 to 1981 ... CD
Columbia/Superbird (UK), Late 70s. New Copy .... $6.99
How sweet, indeed – Columbia Records soul of Tyrone Davis – laidback, charismatic vocals from Tyrone and material rolls lush melodies and mellow soul, to brass & strings accented, disco ready jams! It’s wonderful stuff that's easy to get carried away in the charms off, the right mix of bigger, fuller, Chicago recorded style with just enough of his earlier, rootsier, rawer southern style. Fantastic stuff to have compiled in a well chosen set, from the clubbier jams to the more slow cooking numbers. Includes "Give It Up (Turn It Loose)", "Close To You", "This I Swear", "I Got Carried Away", "Get On Up (Disco)", "Can't Help But Day", "Heart Failure", "Just My Luck", "In The Mood", "Be With Me", "Ain't Nothing I Can Do" and more. 14 tracks in all.

Tyrone DavisI Had It All The Time ... CD
Dakar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy .... $22.99
The title's a great one – as Tyrone Davis has always had it, and has never lost it – but he sounds especially wonderful here during his legendary run for the Dakar/Brunswick label, where he was really able to forge a unique groove! Davis' vocals are wonderful – proud and powerful, but with this little rasp that brings in a great sense of humanity – and the backings are soaring in a Chicago soul style, but have a few bluesy undercurrents that really show off the west side roots of Davis. Arrangements are by Gene Barge, Tom Tom Washington, and Jerry Long – and titles include "I Had It All The Time", "Your Love Keeps Haunting Me", "After All This Time", and "Was I Just a Fool" – all great songs about love lost and love's worries!

Tyrone DavisIn The Mood (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy .... $14.99
Our favorite album ever from Tyrone Davis – even if it's completely different than most of his other work too! The set's got a wonderfully smooth feel right from the start – a mellow-grooving, slow-stepping approach that works perfectly for Tyrone's wonderful vocals – pushing them out of their bluesy roots, into a more sophisticated modern soul style that's mighty nice! The change is a key illustration of the way that Chicago soul was really growing in the 70s – moving into some of the richer territories that you'd find in work from Philly, too – and Davis' growth on a record like this is a real testament to his maturity as a singer. James Mack handled the arrangements – and titles include the sublime "In The Mood" – plus "You Know What To Do", "Keep On Dancin", "All The Love I Need", "I Don't Think You Heard Me", "Ain't Nothing I Can Do", and "I Can't Wait". CD features 2 bonus tracks – single mixes of "In The Mood" and "Ain't Nothing I Can Do". CD

Tyrone DavisTurn Back The Hands Of Time (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Dakar/Solid (Japan), 1970. New Copy .... $22.99
The second album from Chicago soul legend Tyrone Davis – and every bit as wonderful as his first! Like that set, this one bounces along on a wave of well cast Chisoul arrangements – penned by Tom Washington and Willie Henderson, with a great mix of the sweet and the rough – bubbling under with a heavier rhythm than you might expect for such a session. The whole set skips along with a sound that's totally tight, but also plenty darn righteous – and Tyrone's voice crackles with honesty and feeling on the album's entire set list. Tracks include the mega-hit "Turn Back The Hands Of Time", plus "Undying Love", "If It's Love That You're After", "I Keep Coming Back", and "Let Me Back In". CD features some nice bonus tracks too – "Need Your Lovin", "When I'm Not Around", and "If I Didn't Love You". CD

Tyrone DavisTurning Point (with bonus track) ... CD
Dakar/Solid (Japan), 1975. New Copy .... $22.99
One of Tyrone Davis' last albums for Dakar – and a great one too – issued in 1976 before the demise of that label, and Tyrone's big move to Columbia Records! Tyrone's still working strongly here in that great Chicago mix of smooth and rough – a sound first forged on his early Dakar hits, and carried through strongly here by arrangers Tom Tom and James Mack – who still keep a lot of the indie elements that made Davis' music for Dakar great right from the start. The centerpiece of the album is the title track "Turning Point", and it's situated in a set of other nice tunes, a number of which have that smoothed-out feel that Tyrone brought to his work in the late 70s. Includes a remake of "Turn Back The Hands Of Time" (done at a nice ballad tempo), plus "It's So Good (To Be Home With You)", "Saving My Love For You", and "I Can't Bump" (parts 1 & 2). CD features a bonus single mix of "It's So Good". CD

The album features a sublime stepper called "Are You Serious" – a great track that easily ranks with Tyrone's best work from later years – and the rest of the album's filled with other smoothly soulful tracks that show Tyrone at his best. Titles include "Overdue", "A Little Bit Of Lovin", "Let Me Be The One", "Where Did We Lose", and "You've Got To Save Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Tyrone DavisWithout You In My Life ... CD
Dakar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy .... $22.99
Warm and tender work from the mighty Tyrone Davis – really singing here at the height of his early powers, in that wonderful blend of the rough and smooth that made him so unique! Davis has a gritty touch in his singing style, but the backings have that perfect Brunswick Chicago soul approach – a blend that's laid out perfectly in the album's arrangements from Monk Higgins, Willie Henderson, and Tom Tom Washington! Tyrone's a singer who's really a cut above – especially on his early work like this – able to charm and convince us with just about any sort of lyric. Titles include "Wrapped Up In Your Warm & Tender Love", "I'm Just Your Man", "There It Is", "I Had It All the Time", and "True Love Is Hard to Find". CD

A landmark of Chicago soul! "Turn Back The Hands Of Time" was a huuuuuuge crossover track for Tyrone – and it mixed his roosty vocal style with the soaring Chisoul arrangements of Tom Tom in a very groovy way! "I Keep Coming Back" is an excellent lost weeper, with a deep deep soul sound that's really great, augmented by some nice bubbling under organ! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Dakar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Tyrone Davis takes on the legacy of Tommy Edwards with the title of this classic set – a record that seemed to unlock a whole new chapter in Tyrone's career! Davis had always been great from the start – singing in a sharp west side blend of blues and soul, often with all the best soaring Chicago touches – but here, he kicks back a bit more, and shows that he can still groove wonderfully even when getting mellow – at a level that would only blossom more fully in years to come. Richard Parker produced, and wrote a number of original tunes too – and arrangements are by Willie Henderson, James Mack, and Tom Tom Washington – who all keep the Brunswick sound very firmly in place. Titles cuts include a remake of "It's All In The Game", plus "Happiness Is Being With You", "You Don't Have to Beg Me to Stay", "Where Lovers Meet", and "I Can't Make It Without You". CD

New Randy BrownWelcome To My Room/Midnight Desire ... CD
Casablanca/Shout (UK), 1978/1980. New Copy .... $14.99
Two killers from Randy Brown – sublime 70s soul, back to back on a single CD! Welcome To My Room is a mellow soul masterpiece from Randy Brown – a crucially-overlooked talent from the late 70s, working here with a totally put-together vibe! The album's got the mature, mellow feel of some of the best work by better-known 70s contemporaries – like Leroy Hutson or Lamont Dozier – polished, but never slick – and flowing out with a sensual groove that's especially nice on the more laidback or midtempo cuts. Randy's vocals have some great deep soul echoes – much more so than other singers of this type – and mixed with the warm production from Homer Banks and Carl Hampton, they give the album a rich quality that totally grabs us – a bit like some of Teddy Pendergrass' best mellow work with The Blue Notes. Titles include "I Love You Baby", "Love Is All We Need", "Do It Baby", "Too Little In Common", and "I'd Rather Hurt Myself". Midnight Desire is a sweet, smooth stepper from the great Randy Brown – and a record that's got the same sublime mix of mellow grooves and earthy vocals that you might find on some of Tyrone Davis' best late 70s work for Columbia! Tunes are all plenty darn fresh – written by the team of Homer Banks and Chuck Brooks, who also produced the album – and Randy's got this way of hitting a groove that's confident, but never arrogant – a perfect late 70s masculine mode, of the sort only a handful of singers could handle this well! Titles include "Without You (I Can't Make It Through The Night)", "We Ought To Be Doin It", and "Do You Love Me?" – all of which have great hooks – plus "Do You Love Me", "Love Be With You", and "Love Formula".

Don BryantDon Bryant – The Hi Records Single Collection ... CD
Hi Records/Solid (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs .... $28.99
An excellent compilation of raw Memphis soul – from one of the rarest singers on the famous Hi Records label! In the years before Hi Records had big hits with singers like Al Green and Ann Peebles, and when they were still mostly messing around with pop instrumental tunes, the label was fortunate enough to have the talents of the great singer Don Bryant – a rich-voiced southern singer with a mix of styles who could easily slip into the styles of singers like Tyrone Davis, Otis Redding, Johnny Taylor, and Wilson Pickett. Bryant cut a number of singles for Hi, plus one album entitled Precious Soul – and most of his released work is contained here, as well as a number of rare demos, and titles cut as duets with singer Marion Brittnam. Titles include "My Baby", "Been So Long", "Love's Gonna Live Here Again", "It's So Hard To Put You Down", "Shop Around", "I'll Go Crazy", "There's Something On Your Mind (parts 1 & 2)", "You Cause Me To Wonder", "That Ain't Right Woman", "Star Of Love", "Everytime I Think About You I Get The Blues", and "Walkie Talkie Love".

Chuck JacksonGoin' Back To Chuck Jackson ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1969. New Copy .... $13.99
A real change for Chuck Jackson! This album is the singer's first on Motown – and it's a striking departure from his earlier work on the Wand label, which was often done in a classier, more polished soul style that was more in keeping with the uptown mode of Wand's New York production. This one's in a much deeper soul style – with elements of southern production, and more of a hard soul sound that brings out a raspy edge in Chuck's vocals, and makes him sound a bit like Tyrone Davis. He covers tracks like "Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever", "Can I Change My Mind", and "The Chokin Kind" – very much in the manner of the original rougher soul versions. In fact, the "Goin' Back to Jackson" tag seems to be a reference to the south – or at least to the "Jackson", Mississippi that was often referenced in that 60s song. Other tracks include "You Keep Running Away", "Are You Lonely For Me", "Can You Feel It, Babe", and "The Day My World Stood Still". CD

Willie MabonI'm The Fixer – The Best Of The USA Sessions ... CD
USA/Fuel 2000, Early 60s. New Copy .... $11.99 12.99
Really great work from singer Willie Mabon – best known as a Chicago bluesman from the 50s, but an artist who's in even more soulful territory on these sublime sides from the 60s! Willie's got a quality here that really links together Chicago's blues and soul traditions – in a vibe that prefaces later work by singers like Tyrone Davis or Syl Johnson, but shares their similar sense of deep roots and modern swing. Mabon's a hell of a charismatic force on all these cuts – a singer really ripe for rediscovery, especially on this overlooked stretch of his career. The work was all done for the excellent USA label, and shares the genre-stepping quality of much of that imprint's best music – and titles include "Some More", "Something For Nothing", "Got To Have Some", "Just Got Some", "I'm The Fixer", "Too Hot To Handle", "Somebody Gotta Pay", and "Ruby's Monkey".

Larry Saunders & OthersFree Angela ... CD
Sound Of Soul/Secret Stash, 1971. New Copy .... $13.99 16.99
An incredibly righteous bit of soul – one of the few albums ever cut by 70s mellow soul genius Larry Saunders, and an amazing tribute to Angela Davis! Larry's got a fantastic voice – one that we'd rank right up there with Donny Hathaway or Marvin Gaye, and which is recorded here with sublimely spare arrangements that have a slight southern soul touch, but which are more in the east coast indie mode in which he often worked. There's other artists in the mix, too – a few others brought together by August Moon/Mr Wiggles for the project – singing and playing some amazing work that makes the whole thing a lost righteous soul treasure. The whole album's amazing – almost like finding a part 2 to What's Going On, or listening into what Otis Redding might have sounded like, had he made it to the 70s. Titles include Saunders singing "Free Angela", "This World", and "Where Did Peace Go" – and other cuts include "Nobody Knows" by Dickie Wonder, "I Can Be" by Brother Love, "Old Uncle Tom Is Dead" by Nitroglycerine, "Baby Can't You See" by Tyrone Thomas, and "Geraldine Jones" by Soul Encyclopedia.

New Joe TexBumps & Bruises ... LP
Epic, 1977. Very Good+ .... $5.99
Joe Tex bumps with the best of his contemporaries in the 70s – but at a level that still holds onto all the warmth and humanity of his earlier recordings too! There's definitely a bit of a dancefloor groove to the record, but it never dampens the spirit in Joe's vocals – and in a way, the approach is somewhat similar to that used by Tyrone Davis and Johnnie Taylor for some of their own albums at Columbia in the late 70s. Joe's longtime producer Buddy Killen is on deck, to ensure that the spirit is just right – and some of the best tracks are more midtempo funky than out and out club numbers. The set's gotten a lot of new attention in recent years, after the great track "I Almost Got To Heaven Once" was sampled to great effect by Ice Cube – and titles also include the funky "Ain't Gonna Bump No More", which was Joe's big disco hit – plus "Be Cool", "We Held On", "Hungry For Your Love", and "Leaving You Dinner".

The big names are here, to be sure, but there's also some great lesser-knowns too – Brunswick artists who only ever cut rare singles, and who really make the set a treasure as they nestle nicely next to some of the hits. All tracks have that great Brunswick approach – that soaring, upbeat groove the label did so well – and titles include "Stephy (part 1)" by Herman, "Where Has Our Love Gone" by Ronnie LaShannon, "Love Uprising" by Otis Leaville, "My Love Ain't No Love Without Your Love" by Johnny Sayles, "Talk A Little Louder" by Wales Wallace, "Eleanor Rigby" by Gene Chandler, "Chain Gang" by Jackie Wilson & Count Basie, "Yes I'm Ready" by Mighty Doug Haynes, "Walking On A Tight Rope" by Percy Mayfield, "The Man & The Woman" by Chuck Jackson, and "Turning Point" by Tyrone Davis.

VariousBest Of Brunswick – Love Songs & Ballads ... CD
Brunswick/Solid (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy .... $13.99
Beautiful work from Brunswick Records – one of our favorite sources for mellow soul in the early 70s – and a label who could handle the genre like nobody else! Brunswick had a way of recording tracks in a style that's full, yet still very up close and personal too – and which often has a slight undercurrent of funk, even when the tunes are moving slowly – a strong precursor to the heavier bottom that you'd get in R&B ballads in decades to come, but which Brunswick and its Chicago team seemed to virtually invent themselves! This approach makes the whole set way more groovy than you'd guess from anything with "love songs" or "ballads" in the title – no sleepy late nite tracks, but instead those Chicago slow steppers that always still have a nice bite! Tracks include "She's Heaven" by The Artistics, "Have You Seen Him" by Dana Valery, "You Hurt Me For The Last Time" by Otis Clay, "I Had It All The Time" by Tyrone Davis, "Until You Return" by Ginji James, "The Girl Don't Care" by Gene Chandler, "Stop I Don't Need No Sympathy" by Odyssey 5, "I Want To Be Your Special Man" by The Directions, and "Someone Else's Arms" by Barbara Acklin.

A really cool little collection of 70s soul music – one that brings together only tunes that have a love-based them, but which still have this joyous, soaring quality overall! These aren't ballads, or weepy heartbreak numbers – but upbeat tunes that groove together wonderfully in a rich array of grooves hand-picked from the catalogs of Brunswick, HDH, and Hi Records! Detroit, Chicago, and Memphis modes come together wonderfully, in a surprisingly unified groove – and titles include "Rock Me In The Cradle" by Freda Payne, "Something You Got" by Quiet Elegance, "Let Me Back In" by Tyrone Davis, "I Still Love You" by Jackie Wilson, "Mama's Little Baby" by Brotherly Love, "Gotta Find Me A Lover" by Erma Franklin, "99 Lbs" by Ann Peebles, "Don't Count Your Chickens" by Honey Cone, "What Have You Done With My Heart" by Imported Moods, and "Home Is Where The Heart Is" by Otis Clay.

Great work by a singer you may not have heard of before – but who leant his talents to many records back in the day! The set's one of a rare few albums cut by Sidney Joe Qualls – a fantastic 70s soul talent who's probably better known for his work behind the scenes, and as a songwriter, than he is as a voice on his own. The session is produced with a style that kind of mixes Brunswick Chicago soul with rootsier southern elements – stepping proud in the 70s territory of Johnnie Taylor or Tyrone Davis, but sounding way way better here, and with a much more independent vibe. Plus, the album boasts some incredible material – original tunes written by the likes of Sam Dees, Clifford Davis, George Davis, and others. Titles include "Shut Your Mouth", "Run To Me", "I Enjoy Loving You", "Please Help Me", "Can't Get Enough of Your Love", and "The Next Time I Fall in Love". CD

Dakar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wicked lost album on Brunswick Records – the only full record we've ever seen from bluesy soulman Johnny Sayles, working here with some incredible backings from Willie Henderson! At some level, Johnny's got the raspy warmth and charm of labelmate Tyrone Davis – but Henderson also gives him a bit more of a bounce on the bottom of the backings – kicking things into a groove that's nice and funky on the best cuts! Titles include the incredible "Voice From The Inside" – a tripped out funky number with a famous sample on the intro – plus "I Understand", "Snake In The Grass", "Trouble's A Comin", "My Love", and "Feeling Is Believing".

New Elvin SpencerYou're Being Unfair/Lift This Hurt ... 7-inch
Twinight, Late 60s. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Bluesy genius from the Twinight label – two great sides, both produced by Syl Johnson! "Unfair" is a sad little ballad – with Elvin singing in a raw and open vocal style, going for much more of a hard soul approach. The flip's quite different – with sweeter vocals, and a really nice bounce that takes the tune straight into early Tyrone Davis territory – a-ok with us! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New VariousReadymade Digs Brunswick ... CD
Brunswick/Solid (Japan), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
The Readymade crew turn their talents to a host of tracks from the legendary Brunswick Records – serving up a really joyous mix of Chicago soul that definitely lives up to the best side of their sound! Brunswick soul is usually a lot more upbeat and positive than that of some of their contemporaries – filled with pride and power that really comes through in the grooves chosen for this excellent set – a mix of vocal and instrumental cuts that really remind us why we love Windy City soul from this time so much! Titles include "Where Would I Go" by Ginji James, "California Montage" by Young Holt Unlimited, "Stop Look & Listen To Your Heart" by Barbara Acklin, "Whispers" by Erma Franklin, "Sunny" by Young Holt Trio, "Love The One You're With" by Herman, "Girl I Need You" by The Artistics, "I Had It All The Time" by Tyrone Davis, "This Love Is Real" by Jackie Wilson, "Uptight" by Count Basie & Jackie Wilson, and "Sugar Sugar" by Willie Henderson.

New Little Milton CampbellSomebody's Changin My Sweet Baby's Mind/I'm Tired ... 7-inch
Checker, Late 60s. Used .... Out Of Stock
Little Milton was always one of the more soul-oriented of Chicago blues artists, and this tasty little single, with production by Donny Hathaway, shows him in this light very strongly. "Somebody's Changin" is a nice Chi-soul groover, with a feel that's similar to some of Tyrone Davis' stuff from the same time. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Chess sleeve.)

New Joe SimonGet Down ... LP
Spring, 1975. Used .... Out Of Stock
Joe's up in New York, working with producer Raeford Gerald in that early 70s "southern goes disco" mode that pushed Joe further up the charts than might have been expected. Joe's vocals still have that strong down-home honesty, but most of the tracks on the album have a mid 70s east coast club groove that's not really disco, but more in that Tyrone Davis/Johnnie Taylor smooth southern modern mode. Titles include "Get Down Get Down", "In My Baby's Arms", "Music In My Bones", "It's Crying Time In Memphis", and "Fire Burning". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light wear.)

VariousEccentric Soul – The Bandit Label (3LP set – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy 3 LPs .... $38.99 39.99
An incredible peek into a near-lost chapter of Chicago soul – the tiny Bandit label, home to The Majestic Arrows, one of the greatest indie harmony groups of the midwest in the 70s – plus a few other excellent soul artists! As with the other Eccentric Soul volume from Numero, this one offers far more than just an assortment of rare singles – and instead really digs deep to tell the true story of this tiny indie soul label. The music alone is totally great – as the set features a wealth of harmony soul tracks by The Majestic Arrows, plus other funk and soul tracks by Johnny Davis, Altyrone Deno Brown, and Linda Balintine – but the package is equally noteworthy – filled with the storied details of the unusual and exotic practices and lifestyles of the Bandit Records posse. Titles include "One More Time Around", "Another Day", "Doing It For Us", "Love Is All I Need", "Going To Make A Time Machine", "We Love Together", "The Magic Of Your Love", and "I'll Never Cry For Another Boy" by The Majestic Arrows; "We Have Love" and "Bring Back The One I Love" by The Arrows; "If You Love Me" and "Sweet Pea" by Altyrone Deno Brown; "You're A Habit Hard To Break" and "Glad About That" by Linda Balintine; and "You've Got To Crawl To Me" and "Boogedy Boogedy" by Johnny Davis. Plus, the set also features 3 rehearsal takes of tunes by the Majestic Arrows! This massive 3LP package is way bigger than the CD version – features every song recorded by Arrow Brown, 36 tracks in all – in a heavy box, with a greatly-expanded book that contains the long and sordid story of the label.
