4.50 11

One of the last great records by Johnny Guitar Watson – and an album that's got some wonderfully subdued moments, which is a real relief after some of the too-funky bits on some of his other sets from the late 70s! Johnny returns to the tight soul of the mid 70s Fantasy LPs – still keeping the guitar up in the mix, but also really focusing on his wonderfully compressed style of vocals – a slightly tripped out mode that dances along beautifully with the guitar – ta-ta-ing us to some great mellow grooves, and really letting Watson's personality shine! Titles include "Love Jones", "Asante Sana", "Lone Ranger", and "Children of the Universe". CD features 2 previously unissued bonus tracks – "Funky Blues" and "Untitled Mix". (Tray card has a cutout hole.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

You
FTG, 1988. Used
Slow-stepping soul from Keni Stevens – an artist who always seems to have a better way with a ballad than he does with a groove! The music here is often nicely laidback – late nite stuff, but in an 80s sort of way – given that most of the rhythms and instrumentation are electric, ... CD

Epic, 1992. Used
Sade's last LP from the early 90s before she went into her brief recording and performing hiatus. Like the preceding records, the approach is heavy on the jazz side of things, with a crisp, spare touch on the production and a wonderfully soulful feel to the songwriting. At this point she no ... CD

BE
GOOD/Geffen, 2005. Used
"I rap with the Passion of Christ, Ni**a, cross me!" BE isn't exactly a back-to-basics LP in the vein of his classic work for Relativity – but it is indeed a return to a focused, genuinely soulful, no BS approach – and it's a very welcome one at that! It seems like Com was a ... CD
