PuzzleSecond Album ... LP
Motown, 1974. Very Good ... $7.99
The second album by this obscure rock group who briefly recorded for Motown – and a really great record with some wonderful moments! Puzzle have some nice jazzy touches on their best numbers – slightly funky, and slightly in the jazz-rock mode of groups that were coming out of the UK during the early 70s. The album's got a killer track called "State Of Mind" which has wonderfully jazzy edges, a nice organ solo, and a warm and loping groove that makes it worth the price of the album alone –a nd other track shave some good fusiony touches, the laidback "Haiku", and the choppy funky cut "Now That You Love Me". Other tracks include "Prelude", "A Moment's Rest", and "NYC". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Severin BrowneSeverin Browne ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Iggy PopLust For Life ... CD
Virgin, 1977. Used ... $1.99
Iggy Pop's official solo debut and a masterpiece of individualistic, hedonist rock & roll! Lust For Life was produced by Bowie, and it's not only proof that Iggy had a great new life of his own in the mid 70s, even if the mainstream was no more ready for it than they were The Stooges. Includes the classic "Lust For Life" – we can all thank the Trainspotting soundtrack for bring this Motown drums meets junkie punks gem into the cultural daylight – plus equally excellent and unequivocally classic single "The Passenger", plus "Some Weird Sin", "Neighborhood Threat", "Success", "Fall In Love With Me" and "Turn Blue".

Power Of ZeusGospel According To Zeus ... LP
Rare Earth, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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

Severin BrowneNew Improved Severin Browne ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... About August 5, 2015
A lot more folksy than any other work on Motown from the 70s – and proof that the label was getting more and more influenced by their new LA setting – but a nice sampling of mellow tracks, with a definite Free Soul bent. In a way, Brown's style is similar to that of Jose Feliciano in the 70s – with warm electric production backing up mellow pop/rock lyrics and acoustic guitar. Titles include "Love Song", "Do Magnolia Do", "Love Notes From Denver", "Cooking School", and "More Dreams In The Sea". CD
