✨✧ Laura LeeI Can't Make It Alone ... LP
Invictus, 1974. Very Good- ... $9.99
Sublime soul from the mighty Laura Lee – one of the best deep soul singers of the 70s, even though she recorded with the mostly-northern team of Holland Dozier Holland! The set shows that the trio really knew how to change it up after leaving Motown – and although Lee had recorded for Chess in the 60s, she really finds her groove here – mixing southern soul with a dose of 70s funk – all of which really stands out from most of her contemporaries! Laura's voice is sweet and dusky, in the mode of some of the best underground singers of her day – but also rises above the rest, thanks crack arrangements by HB Barnum and Eugene Moore – who mix strings and soul into a stellar blend of styles! Titles include the breakbeat classic "Crums Off The Table", which begins with some great hard drums – plus the cuts "Every Little Bit Hurts", "I Can't Make It Alone", "Mirror Of Your Soul", and "I Need It Just As Bad As You".

✨✧ Laura LeeLaura Lee ... LP
Hot Wax, 1972. Very Good ... $8.99
A standout set from the great Laura Lee – a deep soul singer with power to rival the greatness of Aretha Franklin, but one who's also got a funkier punch to her music too! The album's a great blend of late 60s female southern and tight 70s bad sister funk – a style that's a bit like that of Gwen McCrae at her early best, but handled here with a fuller vibe that's right in keeping with the best modes of the Invictus/Hot Wax scene from the Holland Dozier Holland team! Vocals are wonderful throughout – and the album features the breakbeat classic "Crumbs Off The Table" – plus "Guess Who I Saw Today", "If I'm Good Enough To Love (I'm Good Enough To Marry)", "Rip Off", "You've Got To Save Me", and "Workin & Lovin Together".

✨✧ Laura LeeWomen's Love Rights ... LP
Hot Wax, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
An excellent batch of hard soul grooves from the great Laura Lee! This one was her first for the Hot Wax label – and it's got the raw quality of her earlier singles for labels like Chess, with a hard vocal style that's very much in the Aretha Franklin/Fontella Bass camp – plus some arrangements that have that bouncing soulful quality that the Staple Singers were using on Stax at the time! There's lots of horns in the mix, and some congas as well, which gives the album a bit of a different twist – kind of an earthy undercurrent that works great with the vocals. Includes the great title cut "Women's Love Rights" – plus "I Don't Want Nothin' Old (But Money)", "Wedlock Is a Padlock", "Her Picture Matches Mine", and "Two Lovely Pillows". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Laura NyroEli & The Thirteenth Confession ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Groundbreaking work from Laura Nyro – exactly the kind of record that sums up the unique genius in her music! The record's not folk, not pop, not soul, nor jazz vocals – but a new sort of style that draws a bit from all those genres, and comes up with a bold new approach that opened the door for countless other female singers in years to come. Despite the fame of the record, and many attempts to copy its genius over the years, Nyro is completely without cliche here – unique in her approach and presentation of the material, and as personally possessed as she is fragile and introspective. Arrangements are by Charlie Calello, and really get the spirit of the tunes right – and titles include "Luckie", "Lonely Women", "Emmie", "Timer", "Eli's Comin", "December's Boudouir", "Stoned Soul Picnic", "Woman's Blues", and "Once It Was Alright Now".

✨✧ Laura NyroNew York Tendaberry ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Laura Nyro's second album in her legendary early run for Columbia Records – and an effort that's a bit more dramatic than the first! Laura's handling all arrangements herself this time, and they're conducted by Jimmy Haskell – but the overall sound is almost as spare as if Nyro were working alone in a studio with just her piano, singing the lyrics of her tunes with a style that's almost tentative at times – and which further deepens the humanity of her music. Laura's slightly more fragile than before – not really shaky, but just more emotionally open – and that certainly brings a lot to her interpretation of the songs, especially when compared to other folks' versions. Titles include "You Don't Love Me When I Cry", "Time & Love", "Save The Country", "Mercy On Broadway", "Gibsom Street", "New York Tendaberry", and "Captain Saint Lucifer".

Pigmeat MarkhamWorld's Greatest Clown ... LP
Chess, 1962. Very Good ... $2.99
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.

✨✧ Nancy WilsonHurt So Bad ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great set that continues the groovy late 60s sound of Nancy Wilson at Capitol Records – that unique blend of jazz and soul that seemed to inspire a whole host of imitations at the time! Nancy's still the best of the bunch at this sort of groove, though – and the arrangements here shift nicely between bouncy soul tracks and mature mellower ballads – handled with just the right sensitivity through charts by Jimmy Jones, Phil Wright, Billy May, and Oliver Nelson. Some of the best tracks are the ones with Phil Wright – like the covers of "Hurt So Bad", "Willie & Laura Mae Jones", and "You're All I Need To Get By" – which all really showcase the new soaring side of Wilson's talents. Yet the other work is plenty great too – definitely head and shoulders above the rest – on cuts that include a funky take on "Spinning Wheel", plus "One Soft Night", "Ages Ago", "Come Back To Me", and "Let's Make The Most Of A Beautiful Thing".
