VariousTwin Cities Funk & Soul – Lost R&B Grooves From Minneapolis/St Paul 1964 to 1979 ... CD
Secret Stash, 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
Rare soul from Minneapolis – a surprisingly great source for grooves in the years before Prince and Morris Day! Turns out, the Twin Cities were already funky, way before the Purple One came into being – as you'll hear in this wealth of rare singles from the late 60s on up through the 70s – all of them mighty darn soulful, and most of them pretty dang funky as well! The wealth of work is really surprisingly – with strong echoes of styles going on in the Chicago and Detroit scenes at the time, but maybe even more surprising, given that Minneapolis/St Paul didn't have nearly the same amount of resources. The package is easily one of the best ever done by the Secret Stash label – a set that really ups the level of their reissues – with a motherlode of killer cuts that include "Love Me Leave Me" by The Valdons, "Sweet Smell Of Perfume" by Maurice McKinnies & The Champions, "Work Your Flapper (part 1)" by Jackie Harris & The Champions, "She's A Whole Lot's A Woman" by Mojo & His Chi 4, "I Ain't Gonna Cheat On You No More" by Willie Walker, "Save Me" by Wanda Davis, "Saxophone Disco" by Morris Wilson, "Honey From The Bee" by Willie & The Bumblebees, "The Max" by Prophets Of Peace, "Get Up" by The Lewis Connection, and "Rusty McDusty" by Morris Wilson.

New Webster LewisLet Me Be The One ... LP
Epic, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A jazzy soul masterpiece from Webster Lewis – light years away from the rougher funk he cut at the start of the 70s! The album's beautifully put together – almost perfect at all points, at a level that we'd rank right up there with the best work by Leroy Hutson, Roy Ayers, or other contemporary maestros in the studio. Unlike some of the more commercial artists of his generation – who also came to soul through jazz – Webster doesn't push the hooks too hard, nor try too much for a hit. And instead, he's more than happy to stay in his own righteous space – with a sound that's smooth, but never slick – tight, but not uptight. He's got some great help on the record – including keyboards from Herbie Hancock and Skip Scarborough, guitar from David T Walker, and percussion from Willie Bobo – all of whom keep things cool. Vocals are handled by a number of singers, including Webster himself – and titles include "Bout The Love", "Let Me Be The One", "Love Won't Harm No One", "El Bobo", "Kemo Kemo", "A Quiet Thing", and "Flying High".

New VariousHi Records Rarities Vol 2 – Funky & Groovy – Harlem Shuffle ... CD
Hi Records/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The funky side of Hi Records – music that goes way past the mellow burning soul you might normally know from the label – served up here in a wealth of rare singles from the Memphis powerhouse of soul! Hi had a lot more going on in the 70s than just the big hits and classic albums that most people know – and the cuts here show a version of the label that was working every bit as hard as Stax to come up with fresh grooves and unusual ways of mixing southern soul and funk for the new generation! The set list is huge – 25 numbers, many of which should be pretty fresh to your ears – and titles include "Sweet Thing" by Willie Walker, "Slidin In & Out" by The Memphians, "Got To Find My Baby" by James Gadson, "Fried Chicken" by Rufus Thomas, "Everybody Got Soul" by Gene Miller, "Disco Hustle" by Heinsight, "If You Can't Please Your Woman" by Tuxedo, "Love Map" by Lyndon, "You Made Me What I Am" by Erma Coffee, and "Patricia" by George Jackson.

New VariousHi Records Rarities Vol 4 – Slow & Deep – Sweetness Ain't Sweet No More ... CD
Hi Records/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Hi Records goes nice and deep – not just in a deep soul style, but in a setting that also showcases some of the lesser-known talents who recorded for the legendary Memphis soul label! The package is overstuffed with rare goodies from the vaults of Hi – 26 tracks that include a fair bit of really obscure gems from the Memphis scene of the late 60s and early 70s – a motherlode of music that's almost like digging into some of the deeper reaches of the Stax/Volt single collections! There's a few more familiar names here, but we really treasure the more obscure artists – who come together in a very unified collection of laidback, mellow-grooving, deep soul numbers. Titles include "Mama's Boy" by James Fry, "Sweetness Ain't Sweet No More" by T99, "Is It Over" by David Duke, "Say Yes To Love" by Willie Clayton, "I Love Her" by Willie Walker, "I Wanna Share Everything" by Teacher's Edition, "Wake Up Fool" by Masqueraders, "I'm Gonna Wait" by George Jackson, "Hey Little Girl" by Norm West, "Charlie Tuttle" by Sam Mosley, "Back To You" by Jean Plum, "She's My Woman" by Bobo Mr Soul, "That's The Man Is For" by Phillip Mitchell, and "Be Good To You" by Jimmy Mack.

New VariousJewel Records Gospel Story ... CD
Jewel/Fuel 2000, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Way more than just the gospel you might expect from the title – given that the music here comes from the Jewel Records label, a real powerhouse for southern soul and blues! The style here is plenty secular overall – with lots of the best deep soul overtones we've come to expect from Jewel in the late 60s and early 70s – including that relaxed sort of production approach that makes the label's music way different than that of any of their southern contemporaries on the scene. The tunes are definitely spiritual, but carried off in a way that's very appealing to any fan of southern soul at the time – and the double-length set features a massive 36 gospel gems from Jewel that include "You Better Get Right" by Willie Morganfield, "I'm Traveling On" by The Soul Stirrers, "Solid Rock" by The Violinaires, "Little Boy" by Ted Taylor, "He Changed" by Albertina Walker & The Caravans, "All The Way" by The Violinaires, "Confusing Times" by Clarence Fountain, "A Change Is Gonna Come" by The Meditation Singers, and "There's A Creator" by Roscoe Robinson.

New Lance Scott Walker/Peter BesteHouston Rap Tapes ... Book
Sinecure, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really great companion to the Houston Rap photo book – one that features interviews and oral histories from the Texas hip hop scene – alongside a small amount of additional photos taken for the original project! This volume is mostly words – but pretty compelling material from producers and MCs that include Bun B, Willie D, Paul Wall, Big Mike, DMD, Lil Troy, and others – plus older artists like Rick Royal and MC Wickett Crickett. The personal details are great – and serve up a world we never could have grasped this fully from our northern perspective. The book is 283 pages, softcover, and features almost 20 pages of black and white photos in the middle. Book
