Audrey WheelerLet It Be Me (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/FTG, 1987. Used .... $9.99
Audrey Wheeler's debut album – a really top-shelf effort crafted after years of lending her vocals to other folks' records, and a classic early stint in the group Unlimited Touch! Preston Glass handled production, and the set's about as sharp as can be for a mainstream soul album of the time – still a bit heavy on the beats that had come into vogue a few years before, but put together with a richness that really fits Wheeler's deep vocals – and which shows some of the changes that soul music was making towards the end of the 80s. There's plenty of hooks in the mix, but things are also nicely free from commercial cliches too – and titles include "Love On The Inside", "Irresistible", "Forget About Her", "I Miss You Love ", "Don't Lose Your Touch", and "Let It Be Me". CD features bonus tracks "Irresistible (extended)", "Irresistible (UK rmx)", and "Forget About Her (club mix)". 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".

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.

BlossomsShockwave ... LP
Lion/MGM, 1972. Very Good+ .... $13.99
An obscure girl group soul album from the early 70s, recorded in LA with arrangements by such folks as Gene Page and The Paris Brothers – and with a sound that's similar to Love Unlimited, or other West Coast combos like that. Page's work is probably the best on the album, and his titles include "Touchdown", "Last Call For Love", and "Cherish What Is Dear To You". LP, Vinyl record album

Perry ComoJust Out Of Reach – Rarities From Nashville Produced By Chet Atkins ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1973/1975. New Copy .... $15.99 16.98
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".

Young-Holt UnlimitedFunky But! ... LP
Brunswick, Late 60s. Very Good+ .... $9.99
Funky but also loosely jazzy and soulful grooves from Young Holt Unlimited! This is easily the most obscure album by the Young Holt combo for Brunswick – and a really wicked set that has them stretching out a lot from their early years! The album's got some nice electric touches that point the way towards the group's looser, freer 70s work – yet still moves very nicely in the pocket, through a mix of soul jazz originals and very groovy covers – all done in the group's trademark tight, syncopated groove! Titles include "Lady Madonna", "Valley Of The Dolls", "Orient", "Country Slicker Joe", "The Funky Duck", "Sombrero Sam", "Eleanor Rigby", "Secret Love" and "Honey". LP, Vinyl record album

Walter WanderleyMoondreams ... CD
1969. New Copy .... Around June 11, 2014
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".
