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.

Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969. New Copy
A stunning early set from The Artistics – and exactly the kind of record that shows why they were one of the best Chicago soul groups at the end of the 60s! The harmonies are wonderful – smooth, but with a rough undercurrent too – balanced at a level that few groups could touch ... CD

Dakar/Solid (Japan), 1972. New Copy
Massive grooves from the mighty Hamilton Bohannon – the kind of skittish, nervous rhythms that made his funk unlike any other artist of the 70s! There's a sense of rhythmic progression here that's super-tight, but often quite subtle in its inflections – a mode that went onto have a ... CD

Dakar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy
A massive amount of fast funk groovers from the mighty Hamilton Bohannon – just the kind of skittish, upbeat, and totally amazing tracks that have made him a legend for years! The sound is really stripped down – usually just bass, drums, and guitar – wrapped together in this ... CD

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

Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976. New Copy
Quite possibly the greatest soul band ever to come out of Milwaukee – and a tight little ensemble who've got a really great sound! The overall feel of their work is a bit hard to peg – as the group are equally great at mellow midtempo group numbers as they are at tighter, clubbier ... 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

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
