Severin BrowneSeverin Browne ... CD CD format
Motown (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $9.99
A great easy groover from early 70s Motown! Severin Browne's the brother of Jackson Browne – and as such, is more of a mellow rock artist than a soul artist – but this album's got a sweet soul vibe in the mix, and is a surprisingly nice release from Motown's early LA years! In a way, you can hear a James Taylor-ish influence in Browne's vocalizing and guitar work, but the backing behind him is more in the smooth LA studio style – a bit like that used on the 70s work of Jose Feliciano or Nick DeCaro. The songs are surprisingly wonderfully crafted – and to discover Browne's work is to tap into the lost career of a under-recognized 70s singer/songwriter. Titles include "Darling Christina", "Snowflakes", "Sister", "Not Quite Time", "Skip Tune", and "Just A Matter Of Time". CD

Keith98.6 Ain't Gonna Lie (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Mercury (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Great great work from Keith – one of those overlooked pop talents of the 60s, but one who really came across with a great sound at the time – kind of a mix of Burt Bacharach arrangements with a pop psych sort of edge! The tunes are sweet, but swinging too – and Keith's got this vocal style that slides in nicely with the larger charts – at a level that's almost more A&M-styled pop than you'd guess from the Mercury Records placement of the set! Jerry Ross produced, and brings in some nice soulful undercurrents – of the sort you'd hear on his more famous material – almost a Motown sensibility, but mixed with rolling horns, piano hooks, and great guitar lines – on titles that include the wonderful hit "98.6", plus "Mind If I Hang Around", "Sweet Dreams", "Tell Me To My Face", "I Can't Go Wrong", and "Pretty Little Shy One". CD has loads of bonus tracks – 27 titles in all, including the complete Out Of Crank album – with tracks that include "Sugar Man", "Candy Candy", "Easy As Pie", "Hope Girl", "Be My Girl", "Hurry", "The Pleasure Of Your Company", and "Happy Walking Around".

Righteous BrothersSouled Out ... LP LP format
Verve, 1967. Very Good ... $3.99
One of the greatest blue eyed soul albums of the 60s – and one of the few full albums ever recorded by the mostly-singles Righteous Brothers! The album builds wonderfully on the duo's earlier work for Phil Spector – and uses Motown maestro Mickey Stevenson to give the record a sophisticated uptown soul sound that's a perfect match for the well-crafted vocals of Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield. The songs here are pretty fresh too – a batch of tunes that gets past their familiar hits, and features some great Motown influences from writers Leon Ware, Stevenson, and others. Titles include "Been So Nice", "Stranded In The Middle Of Noplace", "You Bent My Mind", "Without You I'd Be Lost", "Love Keeps Callin My Name", and "So Many Lonely Nights Ahead". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, a bit of splitting on the spine, and some light stains on the back, with a sticker and a piece of masking tape in the one corner.)

XitPlight Of The Redman ... LP LP format
Rare Earth, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
A killer batch of funky rock from Xit – one of the best of the Native American groups that came to prominence during the early 70s! (And what ever happened to that movement anyway? Did we forget about them again?) The album's a proud visionary set that revels in the freedoms of Motown's Rare Earth label – using some of the space to jam in a Rare Earth way, but also working through some more complicated and personal tunes that help get across their agenda. Titles include "War Cry", "Someday", "The Coming Of The White Man", "At Peace", and "Mihaa Shil Hozo". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

New Power Of ZeusGospel According To Zeus ... LP LP format
Rare Earth, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavy rock and heavy drums – a fuzzed out classic that's one of the best lost hard rock albums of the 70s! These guys may have been a strange choice for Motown's rock-based Rare Earth label back in the day, but they've more than made a place for themselves in the history books – thanks to some really fierce rocking, and an approach to the drums that's kept the record in more than a few crates over the years – not totally a break record, but with plenty of tight work on the drums and some really monster bass! Titles include "Hard Working Man", "Uncertain Destination", "No Time", "Realization", "The Sorcerer Of Isis", "It Couldn't Be Me", "The Death Trip", and "In The Night". LP, Vinyl record album
