5.00 11

Niceness from Evelyn King to cap the end of the 70s! She's really in great form here – stepping out with some fully clubby backings, and working with the mighty T-Life, who's really got a great ear for her groove! The style's a bit less disco than previous albums – some simpler soul at points, mixed with other upbeat modes that hearken a bit more towards the sound of the dancefloor in the early 80s – almost a precursor to that decade's groove at points. Evelyn's vocals are proudly soaring throughout – never too over the top, and always right on the money – and tracks include "Music Box", "I Think My Heart Is Telling", "Out There", "It's OK", "No Time For Fooling Around", and "Make Up Your Mind". (Cover has some wear, marker, and a promo stamp.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Bag Full Of Soul
RCA, 1966. Very Good+
Great early work from Jose Feliciano – and definitely the "bag full of soul" promised in the title, as the album's got a wonderfully heartfelt feel all the way through! Jose's voice is warm and beautifully melodic, and the arrangements are a bit more straight ahead than on later ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mmm
RCA, 1984. Very Good+
An 80s classics from Richard Dimples Fields – long one of the unsung heroes of the indie soul scene, stepping into the light in the 80s with some much-deserved hits! Fields has a high-toned voice that's almost falsetto soul – quite distinct among his contemporaries, and used in a style ... LP, Vinyl record album

You Fooled Me
RCA, 1978. Very Good
A great little debut album from the team of Len Ron Hanks and Zane Grey – songwriters who'd scored earlier in the 70s with tracks for Jerry Butler and LTD, but who also strike up a pretty strong groove on their own! The pair are from Chicago, but are recording in LA – and their sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

On Top Of Clear
RCA, 1976. Very Good+
One of their nice albums for RCA, with a sound that's a mix of ballads and up-tempo cuts, in the same style as a lot of other East Coast groups from the time. Van McCoy arranged and produced, and the LP includes their single "Hey, What's That Dance You're Doing", plus "Two Different ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mr Magic Man
RCA, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
A really great post-Atlantic album from Wilson – one recorded with deep soul production from Dave Crawford and Brad Shapiro, both of whom are working at the height of their best early powers! The feel is much deeper, in fact, than some of Pickett's later, waning work for Atlantic – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Try A Little Love
RCA, 1965. Very Good
Released shortly after Sam's death, this is a beautiful batch of ballad tracks to remember how sweet his voice was. The production's a bit pop, but Sam's singing is as heavenly as ever. Titles include "When A Boy Falls In Love", "Try A Little Love", "Bridge Of Tears" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Carol Townes & Fifth Avenue
RCA/Sixth Avenue, 1976. Very Good+
A really wonderful bit of group soul from the 70s – the debut effort from a quintet who'd worked hawking goods on TV at the time, but who are getting some tight production here from Lou Courtney – who pushes the album into much hipper territory than you might expect. Carol's in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cloud Nine
Gordy, 1969. Very Good
A masterpiece in psychedelic soul from The Temptations – perhaps the most perfectly realized album from their years working with Norman Whitfield! The set's awash in that bottom-heavy, rumbling funk mode that Whitfield brought to the group at the end of the 60s – served up in bold ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hip Hug-Her
Stax, 1967. Very Good+
Booker T's definitely getting a bit funky with this one – stepping off with the incredible title cut, a tune which really complicates the groove from the earlier years! The sound is still solid Memphis soul, with a raw instrumental vibe – but the grooves are even better than before, ... LP, Vinyl record album
