✨✧ Clarence CarterPatches ... LP
Atlantic, 1970. Very Good+ ... $9.99
The album that very firmly put Clarence Carter on the mainstream soul map – thanks to his brilliant version of the title tune! By the time of this set, Carter was already one hell of a soul singer – and really brought amazing sounds to play with classic production from Rick Hall and the Fame Studios gang. But when he pointed those talents towards the country soul story "Patches", he really found his groove – mixing southern roots from both sides of the fence into one really unique groove – and following it up with a host of other well-chosen tunes that really helped establish Carter's unique place in music. George Jackson co-wrote a number of the best tunes – a few with Clarence – and titles include "Patches", "I'm Just A Prisoner", "Till I Can't Take It Anymore", "Changes", "Say Man", "Willie & Laura Mae Jones", "CC Blues", and "Getting the Bills (But No Merchandise)". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ 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". (Comedy/Spoken, Soul) LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner.)

Brenda RussellGet Here ... LP
A&M, 1988. Very Good+ ... $2.99
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 light wear.)

VariousSoul Groove! ... LP
Capitol, 1970s. Very Good+ ... $3.99
One of those compilations that was either a loss leader, or a commercial attempt to capitalize on past hits laying around the vaults (often sold in supermarkets and drug stores), but still quite a respectable collection of soul and jazz numbers from Capitol: Nancy Wilson "Uptight (Everything's All Right)" and "West Coast Blues", Cannonball Adderley "74 Miles Away" and "I Remember Bird", Lou Rawls "I Love You, Yes I Do" and "We Baby Blues", King Curtis "Soul Serenade" and "Watermelon Man", and Bettye Swan "Willie & Laura Mae Jones" and "Don't Touch Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Tony Joe WhiteBlack & White ... LP
Monument, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Damn soulful work from Tony Joe White – exactly the kind of set that shows why he was so great at skirting both the borders of rock and soul music at the end of the 60s! There's a really fresh, new groove going on here – a vibe that shows an artist who's spent a decade drawing in all the best elements of Memphis and Muscle Shoals, with a slight touch of Nashville country at times too (no surprise, given the Monuments Records release of the set) – but also a more biting singer/songwriter ethos that really pushes the whole thing out to a much bigger rockish vibe! Drums are amazing – played by Jerry Carrigan with an especially funky quality on side one – and the tunes are a mix of great originals by White – many of which would be covered by others in years to come – plus some well-chosen covers, too. Tracks include "Soul Francisco", "Willie & Laura Mae Jones", "Polk Salad Annie", "Aspen Colorado", "Who's Makin Love", and "Scratch My Back". (Rock, Soul) LP, Vinyl record album
