CD


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.

Venture/Unidisc (Canada), 1978. New Copy
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

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

Motown (Japan), 1974. New Copy
Syreeta's second album for Motown – and a set that really expands the groove from the first! (Then) husband Stevie Wonder is all over the album – and in a way, the shift between this album and the first is similar to the shift between Stevie's Music Of My Mind and later efforts like ... CD

DeBarges
Motown (Japan), 1981. New Copy
The wonderful first album from DeBarges – a surprisingly great batch of harmony soul that really updates the "family" sound of 70s groups like The Sylvers and Five Stairsteps – and helps it find a whole new place in the 80s! The arrangements are wonderfully old school – ... CD

Ain't No Turnin Back
Motown/Universal (Japan), 1984. New Copy
A great little set from Phyllis St James – a Motown album from the mid 80s, and one that was crucially overlooked at the time! At a time when most of her contemporaries were losing a bit of control in the studio, Phyllis is still very firmly in charge – writing and arranging most of ... CD

Moods Of Marvin Gaye
Tamla/Universal (Japan), 1966. New Copy
The moods of Marvin Gaye are many, even at this early point in his career – as the set has the young Marvin really taking off strongly – hitting hard on classic Motown groovers, but also showing a sensitive side at times too! The album kicks off with some killer rhythms on cuts like ... CD

Wish It Would Rain
Gordy (Japan), 1968. New Copy
A pivotal moment for The Temptations – a set that has the group hitting even more of a deep soul sound than before – at a level that really sets them apart from some of the other groups on Motown at the time! There's a richer, fuller sound going on here – as the group work with ... CD
