New Unlimited TouchI Hear Music In The Streets/In The Middle ... 12-inch
Prelude, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Genius, pure genius – and one of our favorite Prelude singles ever! "I Hear Music" is one of those tunes that takes a single track and creates a mini-symphony of groove – starting with a snapping catchy 80s groove sort of mode (one that's clearly inspired by Roy Ayers) – then stepping things up with a different approach on the chorus, then going back to the initial groove – and gliding through the whole thing with a soulful grace that's simply amazing! "In The Middle" is pretty darn nice too – a bit more uptempo and straight club, but a winner all the way through! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has initials in marker.)

New Unlimited TouchSearching To Find The One ... CD
Prelude/Unidisc, Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An excellent bit of 80s groove! Unlimited Touch have a cool 2-female lead vocal style – and they keep it tight and soulful on grooves that have a nice tight club sound, in a style that often reminds us of Roy Ayers produced albums, like Ladies Of The 80s, or some of the more uptempo tracks on the Ramp album. Their music is some of the most soulful to come out on the Prelude label at the time – and this CD collects titles from the years 1980 to 1984. Titles include "Searching To Find The One", "Love Explosion", "Your Love Is Serious", "Private Party", "In The Middle", "Happy Ever After", and "I Hear Music In The Streets". CD

New MFSBLove Is The Message ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A key moment for the Philly soul scene of the 70s – and the first album to feature the MFSB backing group as a solo act on their own! The ensemble were responsible for key sounds on countless soul singles of the time – yet also find a way to soar beautifully on their own – in a sweet instrumental groove that matches the strength of Barry White's Love Unlimited Orchestra, and which was definitely a key inspiration for the sound of the Salsoul Orchestra! There's definitely a bit of early disco in the mix, but the style's more uptempo east coast overall – that pre-disco groove that was going down in the clubs – with larger strings added to a core group of funky rhythm players. Gamble & Huff production make the whole thing sparkle, and arrangements are by Vince Montana, Bobby Martin, and Jack Faith – on titles that include "Love Is The Message", "Cheaper To Keep Her", "TSOP", "Zack's Fanfare", "Touch Me In The Morning", and "My One & Only Love". LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousBrunswick Revisit – Selected By Tatsuo Sunaga ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A host of great soul cuts from Brunswick Records – all pulled together by Sunaga T! Sunaga has one of the grooviest, most joyous styles of all the Japanese DJs we can think of – and he really brings that approach into play here with some wonderful numbers from Brunswick – most of which are Chicago soul tunes from right at the end of the 60s or start of the 70s – usually produced with that soaring, leaping groove that was big on the Windy City at the time. Vocals are wonderful as the grooves – and titles include "We Need Love" by The Directions, "Stoned Out Of My Mind" by The Chi-Lites, "Love Land" by Lost Generation, "Who You Really Are" by Fred Hughes, "Honey Baby" by Ginji James, "I'll Bake Me A Man" by Barbara Acklin, "Don't Say Boodbye" by First Love, "Whatcha Gonna Do About Me" by Jackie Wilson, "How Insensitive" by Young Holt Unlimited, and "Love Hangover" by Touch.

Walter WanderleyMoondreams ... CD
A&M/CTI (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
Walter Wanderley opens up wonderfully on both organ and electric harpsichord here – going for a very different sound than on his earlier records, and with plenty of great late 60s CTI touches! The music is as heavenly as you might guess from the title – a dreamy recasting of Brazilian bossa modes with some of the sunnier 60s touches of the A&M scene – all wrapped together with impeccable arrangements both from Deodato and Wanderley himself. The record mixes a bit of strings with a sweet chorus of flutes and just a bit of trumpet – all undercut by some snapping rhythms that include a bit of percussion from Airto, plus occasional chorus vocals sung by Flora Purim and Stella Stevens! The mix of players, modes and sounds here is really wonderful – and makes for a unique album that propels the older 60s bossa sound firmly towards the more sophisticated modes of the 70s – all at a level that Wanderley never hit again in the studio! Titles include great versions of Marcos Valle's "Proton, Electron, Neutron", Egberto Gismonti's "O Sonho (Moondreams)", Luiz Gonzaga's "Asa Branca", and Young-Holt Unlimited's classic "Soulful Strut" – plus "Penha", "L'Amore Dice Ciao", "5:30 Plane", and "Mirror Of Love".

New Perry ComoJust Out Of Reach – Rarities From Nashville Produced By Chet Atkins ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1973/1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Perry Como goes country? Not exactly – as the work here fits very well within the best later sides by the magical Como – but the music does have a special sort of Nashville flair, thanks to sublime production from Chet Atkins! Atkins and RCA had a really unique approach for recordings in Music City – a way of isolating instruments and voices, and creating a sense of compression in the studio that was years ahead of its time – and which turns out to work perfectly for Perry here! Como's pillowy-soft approach never had it so good – and with Atkins' touches here, he gets a cool kind of 70s mellow sound throughout – almost into Singers Unlimited sort of territory, especially when additional singers join in. The CD features 23 tracks in all – the full album Just Out Of Reach, plus other outtakes, singles, and even a few Spanish-language tracks too – all produced by Chet, with titles that include "Yellow Beach Umbrella", "Let's Do It Again", "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye", "The Grass Keeps Right On Growin", "Take Me Home", "It Was Such A Good Day", and "Walk Right Back".
