A Miami soul masterpiece from start to finish – and a lesser-known record from drum machine hit maestro Timmy Thomas! The album's got the feel of Timmy's classic Why Can't We Live Together album – but the overall sound is a bit fuller and richer, with a soulfulness that grabs us right away – and holds on through the entire set! Most of the tracks have that warm percolating early drum machine undercurrent that Timmy virtually pioneered at the time – followed by some great guitar work from Willie "Little Beaver" Hale, and some vocals from Timmy that sometimes have a nice deep soul feel. The album's worth it alone for the title track "You're The Song I've Always Wanted To Sing" – but the whole thing's great, and tracks include "Deep In You", "Let Me Be Your Eyes", "I've Got To See You Tonight", "One Brief Moment", "Ebony Affair", and "Deep In You".

This Is Love
Fan/BBE (UK), 1981. New Copy Gatefold
Sweet soul from Hal Bradbury – a 70s Hawaiian singer, and one with a good deal of AOR groove as well! The album's an indie effort, but it's got the poise and balance of anything coming from the west coast in the mid 70s – that mixture of soulful currents and blue-eyed vocals that some ... CD

An incredible fusion of all the greatness that was going on in the Bay Area scene of the 70s – put together by Coke Escovedo – the brother of Pete and Sheila E, former leader of Azteca, and onetime member of Santana! Yet this set sounds like none of that previous work at all – ... CD

Popcorn Girls
Croydon Municipal (UK), Early 60s. New Copy
An excellent collection of female groovers from the early 60s – one that mixes together rare soul, pop, and vocal numbers from a variety of obscure singles – definitely not the kind of stuff that was hitting the charts at the time! Most numbers have a "popcorn" kind of groove ... CD

Polydor, 1971. New Copy
Subtitled "Live At the Apollo Vol 3", but waaay better than any of the earlier volumes, this monster 2LP live set has James and the JB's wailing away in a freewheeling live set of hard hard hard funky grooves. Excellent work by the band, and a great way to see how sharp they were out of ... CD
