✨✧ George DukeAura Will Prevail ... LP
MPS, 1975. Very Good ... $11.99
The aura here is spreading wide – as George Duke really grows his sound strongly from the early years, and takes hold of a whole host of cosmic influences! The record's one of Duke's biggest for MPS – a beautiful balance between jazzy fusion and spacey soul – served up with help from an array of great singers and players from the west coast scene. Duke's still stretching out plenty on keyboards – but never in a too-jamming, too-indulgent way – always sensitive enough to never mess up the groove, and always with a sense of space and timing that never showed up this well in his later records. Players include Airto on percussion, Alphonso Johnson on bass, Ndugu Chancler on drums, and Duke himself on more keyboards than we could ever hope to list here! Vocals are by Sylvia St James, Gee Janzen, and Kathy Woehrle – as well as Duke himself – and titles include "Foosh", "For Love", "Uncle Remus", "Fools", "The Aura", "Enchinda's Arf", "Floop De Loop", and "Dawn".

Laura NyroFirst Songs ... LP
Columbia, 1966/1973. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Laura Nyro's first album ever – originally issued by Verve/Forecast in the mid 60s, but brought back out on the market by Columbia, during the height of Nyro's early 70s fame for the label! Even at this early point, Nyro sounds wonderful – a fair bit more soulful than most other female pop singers of her time – with a fully-fleshed out approach to the vocals that's mature and sensitive, and almost a bit more confident at times than in later years. Arrangements are by Herb Bernstein, and almost have the same sort of sunny feel as The 5th Dimension in their famous covers of Nyro's tunes – again with more soul than we might have expected for the time. Titles include "Lazy Susan", "Stoney End", "Flim Flam Man", "Buy & Sell", "He's A Runner", "Billy's Blues", and "Wedding Bell Blues". (Rock, Soul) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Laura LeeUp Tight Good Woman ... LP
Chess/P-Vine (Japan), Late 60s. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massive collection of rare work by Laura Lee – a singer who's best known for her 70s hits on the Hot Wax label, but who sounds equally great here on her earlier sides for Chess! Lee's deep soul approach was a perfect match for Chess at the end of the 60s – and the work here often has her coming across with a hard and heavy approach that rivaled the best female soul coming out of Stax or Atlantic during the same era – no surprise, considering that most of the material here was recorded down in Muscle Shoals, far from the Chicago studios and sweeter production styles of most other artists on Chess! The package is a great discovery of southern soul from the end of the 60s – and brings together singles and album tracks that Lee recorded for Chess – including some rare alternates! Titles include "Mama's Got A Good Thing", "Need To Belong", "Dirty Man", "It's How You Make It Good", "A Man With Some Backbone", "Wanted Lover – No Experience Necessary", "You Need Me", "Uptight Good Man", "Stop Giving Your Man Away", "It's All Wrong But It's All Right", "But You Know I Love You", "Another Man's Woman", and "Are You Doing Me Wrong". Beautiful Japanese-only collection! LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes insert – great cover and vinyl!)

Pigmeat MarkhamWorld's Greatest Clown ... LP
Chess, 1962. Very Good ... $4.99
Early genius from Pigmeat Markham – a classic performance at the Apollo Theater, recorded by Chess in a style that would set the tone for countless imitations to come! The cover has kind of a "sad clown" sort of look, but Pigmeat's in full force on a series of routines that include "Go Ahead & Sing", "Restaurant Scene", "Hello Bill", "Ritz Service", and "Frisco Kate".

VariousSoul Gold Vol 1 ... LP
SSS International, Late 60s. Sealed Gatefold ... $11.99
An excellent collection of indie soul recorded for the hip SSS International label in the 60s – one of the cooler companies in the southern scene, with a blend of rootsy and more polished styles in its roster. A few of these numbers are familiar, but there's more that aren't – and the record does a good job of filling in holes in our understanding of the label. Titles include "Shout Bamalama" by Mickey Murray, "I Almost Called Your Name" by Johnny Soul, "There's A Break In The Road" by Betty Harris, "Flat Foot Sam" by Mickey Murray, "I Have No One" by Big John Hamilton, "Pickin Wild Mountain Berries" and "Lover's Holiday" by Peggy Scott & Jo Jo Benson, "Pledging My Love" by Laura Greene & Johnny McKinnis, and "Honey" by Sil Austin.

✨✧ Brenda RussellGet Here ... LP
A&M, 1988. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A seminal bit of late 80s soul – and one of Brenda's biggest albums ever! This 1988 set features some really sweet tunes by Brenda – a bit more off-beat pop than some of her contemporaries, recorded in a style that has some nice jazzy touches. David Sanborn guests on the track "Le Restaurant", and other titles include "This Time I Need You", "Get Here", "Gravity", "Just A Believer", "Piano In The Dark", and "Make My Day". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a hype sticker and promo stamp.)
