A brilliant early set from Honey Cone – and a perfect illustration of the way the trio really moved past simple girl group modes of the 60s! There's a bold, proud, righteous tone to the record right from the start – thanks to these soaringly soulful vocals from the girls, and these fuzzy arrangements from Tony Camillo – who seems to borrow a bit from the more righteous modes of Norman Whitfield at Motown, then give things a bit more of a girl soul twist! The combination is amazing, and the album's rock-solid all the way through – filled with great original tunes that really keep a unified feel throughout – and titles include "Are You Man Enough", "Take Me With You", "Girls It Ain't Easy", "While You're Out Looking For Sugar", "The Feeling's Gone", "Sunday Morning People", and "Take My Love". CD features a bonus 7" mix of "While You're Out".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Hot Wax/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1971. New Copy
Definitely a soulful tapestry here – as the trio of Edna Wright, Shellie Clark, and Carolyn Willis are at the height of their 70s powers – soaring forth in a massive trio mode, and one that really rewrites the sound of girl group soul for the 70s! There's a bouncy, upbeat groove to the ... CD
Hot Wax/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy
The last Honey Cone album for Hot Wax Records – and a set that's still very much at the top of their game! As with other artists from the Holland-Dozier-Holland stable of hits in the 70s, Honey Cone have a massive amount of force behind their groove – so much so, the record might still ... CD
Tabu/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1989. New Copy
The only full album ever recorded by Dezi Phillips – a set issued at the end of the 80s, but with a bouncy, catchy style that recalls soul music from a few years before! Production is by Bernard Terry – who'd worked with a few other key acts before Dezi – and he brings a strong ... CD
Tabu/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy
Anacostia make the move to Tabu Records for this sweet second set – and they seem to have picked up more of a groove along the way! The same elements as before are firmly in place here – production by Charles Kipps, with supervision from Van McCoy – but the groove is a bit more ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy
Wonderfully tight grooves from Touch – a group who step out here with their debut album, but who had been playing for years on a variety of other studio work! The core combo is wonderful – lots of choppy guitar over the tight bass and drums – and vocals that often have more than ... CD
Tabu/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1990. New Copy
Bouncy, beat-heavy soul from Mary Davis – a set that's almost got a new jack vibe at times, thanks to the dynamic energy of the production! Mary's voice has its own sense of power that really matches the groove – and the shift is a nice late Tabu extension of the label's previous modes ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy
A really compelling talent from early 70s Brunswick Records – by an artist who's got the same sort of genre-crossing vibe as Rodriguez, Jose Feliciano, or the team of Alzo & Udine! Herman hails from Colombia, but was a high school student in Miami at the time of this album – yet he ... CD
I Did It
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1971. New Copy
One of Barbara Acklin's beautiful albums for Brunswick, and one of the hardest to find of the bunch! This might be because the record features a few cuts from other albums – in a style that was sometimes oddly used by Brunswick when issuing albums on its big stars – but don't let that ... CD
Without You In My Life
Dakar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy
Warm and tender work from the mighty Tyrone Davis – really singing here at the height of his early powers, in that wonderful blend of the rough and smooth that made him so unique! Davis has a gritty touch in his singing style, but the backings have that perfect Brunswick Chicago soul ... CD
In Tune
Whitfield/Warner (Japan), 1978. New Copy
Sublime sounds from Willie Hutch – a post-Motown album made for Whitfield Records – and a set that's got a wonderfully laidback, mellow funk groove! Gene Page handled the arrangements – and the sound here is more easygoing than some of Willie's funkier work – but in a great ... CD
Best Of Friends
Elektra (Japan), 1979. New Copy
Jazzy soul all the way through – and a great little album from Lenny White and the Twennynine combo – a group that features some especially great keyboards from the great Don Blackman! The style here's a bit like some of Blackman's own work – rooted in fusion, but focused towards ... CD
Cotillion (Japan), 1982. New Copy
Massive funk from the ADC Band – some lesser-known cats from the early 80s scene on Atlantic Records – but a group with a sense of soul and power that knocks over most of their contemporaries! For those who've ever doubted the influence of P-Funk on the rest of soul music, you only ... CD
