4.70 11

A killer album by the justly described Great JJ Jackson – and one that's been a darn tough one to find over the years! The leadoff cut is JJ's amazing single "But It's Alright", a slammin' soul track that always stops us dead whenever we hear it – which isn't often enough! The rest of the material is excellent too, and there are lots of nice tracks like "I Dig Girls", "Courage Ain't Strength", "Too Late", "Try Me", "Down But Not Out", Sho Nuff (Got A Good Thing Going", and "Four Walls". He's equally adept at uptempo soul and more ballad inflected tunes – great stuff all the way! The Collectors Choice CD version includes 8 bonus tracks, effectively encapsulating his Warner recordings of the mid 60s! Bonus tracks include "You've Got Me Dizzy", "Come See Me (I'm Your Man)", "Give Me Back To Love", "Ain't Too Proud To Beg", "Love Is A Hurting Thing", "Boogaloo Baby" and more. 20 tracks in all.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Fantastic soul from JJ – a monster 60s soul talent who's rarely given his due! JJ first struck big with the landmark hit "But It's Alright" – the leadoff track on this album, and a blistering little tune that's awash in scratchy guitars, bouncing bass, and one of the ... CD

Rock Father
Buddah/Unidisc (Canada), 1976. New Copy
Jazz violinist and vocalist Papa John Creach plays with the modern Midnight Sun soul group – and the result is a very strange batch of tracks that mix traditional stylings with modern instrumentation, and kind of a rock sound. Some tracks are jazzy, and lots are pretty hard jamming – ... CD

Can't get away from this dog – and who'd want to anyway, with music this funky! The set features a load of rare Rufus Thomas material done during his early years at Stax – that pre-funk period when Thomas was only recording a bit for the label, but really coming up with some amazing ... CD

Overlooked 70s genius from The Impressions – 2 killer albums back to back on a single CD! Loving Power is later Curtom work from the group – but still plenty darn nice, with a super-dope vocal harmony approach on the best tracks! The title cut is worth the price of admission alone ... CD

Warner (Japan), 1977. New Copy
An overlooked chapter in the New Birth sound of the 70s – one that has the group still working with all that joyous, righteous ensemble energy of their previous records – but with a slightly different vibe as well! There's been a few changes since before – no more leadership from ... CD

Warner/Real Gone, 1973. New Copy
The only full album ever recorded by Claudia Lennear – a singer who first rose to fame as a member of Ike Turner's Ikettes, but who also lent her vocals to a whole host of other great projects too! Claudia easily skirted the worlds of soul and rock on the LA scene of the early 70s – ... CD

Chaka
Warner/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy
The classic late 70s solo debut by Chaka Khan – one that made Chaka a major star, and deservedly so! This beautiful album showed that she could stand very well on her own two feet without the help of Rufus, thank you. Of course, she's got some fantastic help from Arif Mardin, who works as ... CD
