A wonderful album from Linda Lewis – certainly one of her best from the early days, and a completely captivating mixture of soul, jazz, and rock that sparkles like Minnie Riperton's best work from the time! The album's got a sweet LA sound – with Linda's great vocals up front in the mix, and lots of nice touches on acoustic guitar, almost foreshadowing the later work Sheree Brown with some nicely jazzy undercurrents! Lewis' sound here is great – very unique, warm and sweet, with a quality that really makes her stand out from other artists of her generation. Tracks include "Lullabye", "Fathoms Deep", "I'm In Love Again", "Play Around", "Wise Eyes", "On The Stage", and "Goodbye Joanna". Includes some nice bonus tracks too – the classic groover "Sideway Shuffle", the track "Safe & Sound", and an acoustic demo of "Red Light Ladies".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Market (UK), 2005. New Copy
One of our favorite female soul singers of the 70s – captured here in a really great recent live show at Ronnie Scotts! The album shows that Linda's lost none of her brilliance over the years – and is still able to work in that dreamy mix of jazz, acoustic guitar, and lightly soulful ... CD
Croydon Municipal (UK), Early 60s. New Copy
A bit soul, a bit pop, a bit vocal – and a wonderful batch of tunes pulled together in support of the "popcorn" sound of the Belgian scene! The popcorn groove is different than Northern Soul, but shares a similar love of old vinyl – in this case a compelling blend of songs ... CD
Atlantic/Big Break (UK), 1981. New Copy
Seminal 80s groove from 70s Miami soul star Gwen McCrae – reinventing herself here for the new decade with a totally different sound! The album's best known for the amazing club track "Funky Sensation" – one of those tracks that crossed over big, and had a huge influence in ... CD
De-Lite/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy
Kool & The Gang sounding super-tight, but mighty right as well – a groove that still has all the great jazz elements of their mid 70s records, but which also has them picking up the bassy bottom a bit more too! The sound is not nearly as slick as their 80s hits – and instead still ... CD
Arista/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy
A killer bit of modern soul – one of the standout classics from the best years of Arista! Richard Evans produced and arranged this excellent set of smooth soul grooves for Linda Williams. Linda plays keyboards and sings, and the album was recorded in 2 different sessions – one in LA, ... CD
Joneses
Epic/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy
A killer for the Joneses – probably their strongest album all the way through, thanks to some great production and arrangements by Bobby Eli! This one's got the group taking the fragile harmony style of their earlier records, and filtering it through the Philly powerhouse groove to create a ... CD
United Artists/Big Break (UK), 1976. New Copy
Soaring grooves and mellow moments – a perfect blend of 70s soul styles, summed up here beautifully by Enchantment! The album's one of the group's greatest – and certainly one that's been very well-remembered around these parts – thanks to some rock-solid arrangements from Johnny ... CD
Ariola/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy
A sweet bouncy groover – one of the rare albums of modern soul cut by the group Delegation! The group in this incarnation are a trio – Ray Patterson, Ricky Bailey, and Bruce Dunbar on vocals – stripped-down harmonically, a perfect fit for the album's groove-heavy arrangements. ... CD
Gold Mind/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy
Loleatta Holloway's emerging here as the queen of the disco – trading the southern soul of her early years for a more full-on club groove! Given the strength of her vocals, the approach works great – and if anything, the setting really helps Loleatta find an even better space than ... CD
Cuchi Cuchi (with bonus tracks)
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy
A surprisingly soulful album from this novelty singer from the 70s! Back in the day, Charo was everyone's idea of a joke on TV, but this album's actually a pretty great little session – thanks to help from Vince Montana and the Philly crew! The album has Charo breathily singing and talking ... CD
Force (with bonus tracks)
De-Lite/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy
Kool & The Gang's a little bit slicker and a little bit smoother on The Force than on earlier classic records – but thankfully, they're still getting on down to the funky sounds! The Force does indeed have more of a spacey boogie than a jungle boogie vibe, but they're still doing what we ... CD
Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1976. New Copy
A beautiful album from Jon Lucien – one that's been far too neglected over the years! This was Lucien's second album for Columbia – and it's a wonderfully strong effort that fuses together jazz, soul, and Brazilian styles, in a manner that recalls some of his best work for RCA – ... CD
