A rare solo effort from Danny Woods – a record cut away from Chairmen Of The Board during a stretch when the group had temporarily disbanded – and an excellent showcase for Danny's strength on his own! Woods is really wonderful here – with a proud, righteous quality that really soars out away from General Johnson and Harrison Kennedy – perfect for the righteous backings arranged by HB Barnum and McKinley Jackson – whose spirits really fit some of the more progressive modes of the music. There's plenty of upbeat, positive moments throughout – and titles include "Two Can Be As Lonely As One", "Let Me Ride", "It Didn't Take Long", "Everybody's Got A Song To Sing", "Working On A Building Of Love", and "Roller Coaster". CD also features the bonus track "Everybody's Tippin".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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), 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

Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1970. New Copy
Seminal work from one of the 70s greatest groups! The band had always been great at love songs and uptempo numbers – but this record has them moving into more righteous area, picking up on some of the more socially conscious soul of their generation that had been working its way up the ... 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

ABC/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1978. New Copy
A real classic from Lenny Williams – most likely his strongest solo album ever! By the time of this set, Lenny had been out of Tower Of Power for a few years, working on his own in the west coast scene. But the real genius here comes from producer/arranger Frank Wilson – once a key ... CD

RCA/Big Break (UK), 1981. New Copy
Odyssey certainly does have the melody – and that's always been one of the factors that's made them stand out from the rest! Even though the group worked largely in a territory that had a strong dancefloor feel, they always put enough work into their vocals and overall tunes to make for work ... CD

RCA/Big Break (UK), 1982. New Copy
A really nice step forward for Odyssey – a record that's a bit tighter and more electric than previous sets, but which also has a nice sort of depth as well! These guys manage to balance a love of the hook with all the right sort of touches to keep the cuts from ever being too poppy or ... CD

Gold Mind/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy
A really classic set of dancefloor tracks from Loleatta Holloway – and a set that's got her fully stepping into the disco diva role, after starting out as more of a deep soul singer! Holloway's rich, full voice is perfect for the setting – a proud, confident lead that really soars out ... CD
