A really great collection of Chess Records work by JB Lenoir – one of the more unusual singers on the Chicago scene at the time – and one with a sound that's pretty darn great all the way through! Lenoir's tone is a pitch or two up from most of his contemporaries – not as gritty and deep, and with inflections that almost point the way towards soul singers in the generation to come. Yet the backings are definitely in the best Windy City modes of the time – as Lenoir plays some great electric guitar, alongside Alex Atkins on alto, Ernest Cotton on tenor, Joe Montgomery on piano, and Willie Dixon on bass. The set mixes vintage singles with a few unreleased tracks – and titles include "Natural Man", "Don't Dog Your Woman", "Don't Touch My Head", "Five Years", "Mama What About Your Daughter", "Korea Blues", "Let Me Die With The One I Love", "I'm In Korea", and "Carrie Lee". (90s reissue pressing, sealed. Shrinkwrap has a small hole. Cover has a cutout notch.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Naughty
Warner, 1980. Very Good
A great album of mellow modern soul tracks recorded in Chaka's post-Rufus years! The record was produced by the great Arif Mardin, the man who made so many of the 70s Atlantic soul records work so well – and he handled Chaka's voice with a sweet sweet sound that you don't always get on her ...

Ain't Nothing You Can Do
Duke, 1964. Near Mint-
Beautiful early soul stuff by one of the greatest singers ever. Bobby's young soulful voice is in top form on this set, and the LP includes such great cuts as "Ain't Nothing You Can Do", "I'm Gonna Cry", "Black Night", and "Steal Away". Very cool cover, ... LP, Vinyl record album
