PuzzlePuzzle ... LP
Motown, 1973. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Who are these guys? They're actually pretty great – a jazz rock group with some nice soulful influences, sounding better than you'd expect for such an ensemble. Tracks have a sound that's somewhere in the Blood Sweat & Tears/Chicago vein – but lighter, with more of a west coast jazzy finish. Titles include "Suite Delirium", "Brand New World", "On With The Show", "Lady", and "The Grosso". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has ring & edge wear, sticker spot, and a half split top seam.)

Rare EarthEcology ... CD
Motown, 1970. Used ... $19.99
A stone smoker from Rare Earth – recorded a a time when they were able to easily handle a groove made up of equal parts funk, rock, and soul! The vibe here is almost like War at times – not for the LA touches in the mix, but for the heady and heavy way these guys roll forward – pulling together all the best elements of the underground at the time, and bringing them into their own smoky groove. Instrumentation is wonderful – and some of the cuts have a really great jamming sort of feel – especially the 11 minute reading of "(I Know) I'm Losing You" – originally done by the Temptations, and produced by Norman Whitfield for the album! Other titles include "Long Time Leavin", "Satisfaction Guaranteed", "Nice Place To Visit", "No 1 Man", and a sweet version of "Eleanor Rigby". (Soul, Rock) CD
(Out of print.)

Lesley GoreSomeplace Else Now ... LP
MoWest, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
An obscure later album from Lesley Gore – and a set that's far more mature and adult than you might know from her 60s girl pop hits! The album's cut for Motown's MoWest subsidiary, and has the same hip style as other albums on the label at the time – kind of a California singer/songwriter style, which fits well with all the original material penned by Gore for the album – arranged with kind of a gentle, glowing sound by Artie Butler and the team of Michael Omartin and Jimmie Haskell. The approach is laidback and warm on most numbers, with compressed orchestrations that would be right at home behind Dionne Warwick – and titles include "She Said That", "Out Of Love", "For Me", "The Road I Walk", "Someplace Else Now", "Mine", and "Be My Life".

Nick & The JaguarsIch-I-Bon #1/Cool & Crazy ... 7-inch
Tamla/Third Man, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
One of the coolest, weirdest early singles from Motown – a guitar instrumental that's more rock than the usual soul we'd expect from Tamla – complete with an exotic shouted chant at the beginning, and some Eastern-styled guitar to match! The drums are mighty romping – and continue on the flipside, which definitely has the group getting cool and crazy! (Funky 45's, Rock) 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Beautiful reissue pressing – in a tricycle logo paper sleeve just like the early Tamla pressing!)

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

Rare EarthDreams/Answers (limited edition LP sleeve pressing) ... CD
Verve/Culture Factory, 1968. New Copy ... $13.99 19.98
The funky blue-eyed debut of Rare Earth – an early Detroit combination of soul, rock, and funk! The group really sprang to fame on Motown right after this early album for Verve – but this set may be even harder and heavier than any of their later records – produced by Dennis Coffey, with a nice blend of fuzz and funk, at a level that's very much like the best Atlantic sounds from Vanilla Fudge – but much more born from the Detroit scene that could give the world The Stooges and Funkadelic at the same time! Many cuts are soul standards, redone with a heavy-drum style that's pretty great – and some of the originals have more of the psych feel, but are graced by some genuinely soulful vocals, often done in harmony style. Titles include "Mothers Oats", "New Rochelle", "Yesterday On Third Avenue", "Red Apple", "Get Ready", "6-3-4-5", and "Sidewalk Cafe". (Soul, Rock) CD

✨✧ Rare EarthGet Ready ... LP
Rare Earth, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first really major album from Rare Earth – issued on their own self-named subsidiary of Motown! The set's a perfect blend of the rich undercurrents of the heady Detroit scene of the late 60s – at one level a tripped-out rock record with styles that almost hint at MC5, at another level a batch of blue-eyed funky soul, with keen appreciation for the grooves coming out of the headier end of the Motor City indie spectrum! There's lots of tripped-out guitar work on the set – reminiscent of contemporary work by Dennis Coffey and George Clinton – mixed with a Mitch Ryder, R&B-inspired vocal style that actually comes across pretty darn well. Added to this is the group's flat-out ability to jam – showcased best in the side-long title cut "Get Ready" – a massive jammer which runs for nearly 22 minutes, and takes up all of side two! Other tracks include "Train To Nowhere", "Magic Key", "Tobacco Road", and "In Bed". (Soul, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sue BarkerSue Barker (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Crest/Hot Casa (France), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A hip Australian jazz singer from the 70s – and one who isn't afraid of picking up a bit of soul, too – as she mixes songs from Stax Records, Motown, and Atlantic alongside more familiar standards in the set! Sue clearly got the chance to record in a scene that was less concerned with labels than might have been the case up here in the US – and she gets hip small combo backing that match all the right inflections in her vocals – jazzy when needed, more southern soul at other points – often with more of a 60s acoustic mode than the sorts of more-electric instrumentation other singers of the time were using. Arrangements are by Grahame Conlon, the guitarist in the group – and titles include "What's Going On", "Lover Man", "Think", "6345789", "How Sweet It Is", "Love To The People", "You Stepped Out Of A Dream", and "Groovin".

✨✧ Birds Of A FeatherBirds Of A Feather – The Page One Recordings (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Page One/RPM (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An album that's maybe best remembered for its connection with the world of the young Elton John – as the man himself plays piano on the record, and also contributed a number of songs – but a set that's also a standout achievement from sisters Doreen and Irene Chanter! The duo are British, but sing together in a way that clearly draws a lot of inspiration from southern soul – that version of the music that you'd find refracted through a British prism on records like Honky Chateau or Tumbleweed Connection – but coming through nicely in the girls' own songs too. Production is great – nicely understated, even when full – and the main focus is on the vocals, which are surprisingly soulful throughout. Titles include "Take Me To The Pilot", "Border Song", "Leaving The Ghetto", "Country Comfort", "All God's Children Got Soul", "One More Time", "Take The World", "Bad Side Of The Moon", and a cool cover of "Gimme Shelter" that's almost got a Motown vibe! CD features two bonus tracks – "Blacksmith Blues" and "Sing My Song & Pray". CD
