4.50 11

A pretty darn nice deep soul album – the only one we've ever seen from singer Bill Brandon, and a real obscurity on the mostly-disco Prelude labe! The album was put together by the team of Moses Dillard and Jesse Boyce, but it's much more laidback and mellow than the clubbier work by the pair – very much in a mature 70s southern soul mode – that cut-above, no-cliches style that very few male singers of the generation were able to hit! A few numbers pick up the pace, but usually only slightly – and even on these, Brandon's warm vocals sound great – flowing and grooving with a quality that's almost like Walter Jackson, but a bit deeper soul overall. Titles include "Baby, Love is A Two Way Street", "Hands Full Of Nothing", "Just Can't Walk Away", and "Can't We Just Sit Down And Talk It Over". CD also features the bonus track "We Fell In Love While Dancing (12" version)".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Forget the "funk" in this album – because the best bits are the mellow ones! Creme D'Cocoa are one of those groups pushing slick bass-heavy funk when they should stick to the mellower cuts – which they do nicely on this album, in a smooth male/female harmony style that has a ... CD

Think Positive
De-Lite/Unidisc (Canada), 1982. New Copy
It's past the disco years, and Crown Heights Affair have emerged nicely – with a sweet modern soul style that's got a bit of 80s groove, and which shows a lot more soul than some of their earlier work! The band's singing in a sweet harmony style that works very well with the music – ... CD

Prelude/Unidisc (Canada), Early 80s. New Copy
Seminal 80s groove from James "D Train" Williams – a killer batch of tracks lifted from his strong 12" singles of the time! D Train was great in that he was one of the few artists of his scene who could come up with a whole album of strong material – but that didn't also ... 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

Eddie Kendricks
Tamla (Japan), 1973. New Copy
A legendary album from the great Eddie Kendricks – a set that not only has the singer soaring on the kind of sublime old school vocal numbers he always did so well – but one that also has Eddie stepping out into some great dancefloor modes that would have a huge impact for years to come! ...
