✨✧ Carol DouglasFull Bloom ... LP
Midland, 1977. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Soaring disco from Carol Douglas – a tightly produced set, but one that still has a surprising degree of soul! Douglas has a way of holding it together a bit more than some of her contemporaries on the Midsong label – and the backings here are all by John Davis, and filled with warm touches that are heavy on Philly Soul influences. There's plenty of strings, but also a core combo with Davis on the keyboards – and the percussion stands out nicely on many numbers. Titles include "Full Bloom Suite", "I Want To Stay With You", "We're Gonna Make It", "We Do It", and "I Got You On My Mind". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo stamp.)

✨✧ Carol DouglasCarol Douglas Album ... LP
Midland, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pop disco classic – issued to follow up on Carol's big hit "Doctor's Orders" – the leadoff number on this set! The record's a great example of the way in which female singers on the New York scene were easily making the move towards disco – and the set uses arrangements by Bert De Coteaux, John Davis, and Lew Del Gatto to sweeten up the groove with lots of string-heavy rhythms that would take over nicely, no matter who the singer! Includes the classic "Doctor's Orders", plus "Take Me", "I Fell In Love With Love", "Will We Make It Tonight", "Boy You Know Just What I'm After", and "Baby Don't Let This Good Love Die". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Diddys featuring Paige DouglasAgony & Extasy (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Bam-Boo/Shout (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very cool, really rare soul album from the Philly scene – one that was written, produced, and arranged by Hammond organist Charles Earland – but which is a sweet soul album with a really great feel! There's definitely a touch of Earland's keyboard work on the set – especially some of those non-organ lines he brought to his records for Mercury – and there's a jazzy groove that really sets The Diddys apart from other east coast groups of the time – a more complex approach to rhythm and instrumentation that almost makes some of the tunes feel as if they came from the James Mason side of the spectrum! The whole thing's wonderful – as unique as it is rare – and titles include "Intergalactic Love Song", "Strange Love", "Your Love Is Like A See Saw Baby", "How Long Have You Loved Him", and "My Special Love". CD features lots of bonus tracks – alternate takes of nearly every number on the record! CD

✨✧ Last PoetsLast Poets (Douglas pressing) ... LP
Douglas, 1970. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The first album by the second group to call themselves the Last Poets – and as fierce a document of their rich talents as you'll ever find – bursting forth with anger and righteousness at a level as tight as Gil Scott-Heron's first album! The group here is the key second lineup of the ensemble of wordsmiths – comprised of Abiodun Oyewole, Alafia Pudim, and Omar Ben Hassan, plus the percussionist Nilaja – and most cuts feature only spare percussion backing over the spoken protest poetry – delivered with a brutal edge that really sums up the righteous politics of the time. Titles include "Run, N*gger", "On The Subway", "When The Revolution Comes", "Jones Comin' Down", "Black Thighs", "N*ggers Are Scared Of Revolution", and "Wake Up, N*ggers" – all of which should give you a good picture of what's going on with the record!

New York City BandNew York City Band ... CD
Douglas (France), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
An unusual group – but a nice little record! New York City Band are less of a group on their own, than a combo pulled together for this album – an ersatz soundtrack to the film Sunnyside, a disco-era production starring John Travolta's younger brother Joey! The group's mostly directed and organized by keyboardist Harold Wheeler, who gives their work a smooth groove that's pretty nice on the best cuts – a bit disco-fied, but also with some jazz funk touches – and still pretty strong thanks to vocal contributions from Luther Vandross, Lani Groves, and others. Titles include "Loving You", "Got To Have Your Body", "Ride That Wave", "New York City Band", "Sometimes", and "Sunnyside". CD

✨✧ Last PoetsThis Is Madness ... CD
Douglas/Restless, 1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the Last Poets greatest albums – and one of their most sophisticated as well! Gone are the rough-hewn rhymes of the group's first album, and in their place are better arranged, more thought-out tracks that mix in a wealth of musical influences – and which expand the group's verbal expression past simple protests, and into the realm of Jazzoetry that became their trademark during the mid 70s. Tracks include "Related to What", "Black Is", "White Man's Got a God Complex", "Black People What Y'All Gonna Do", and "This is Madness" – and a number of tracks are preceded by strong and forceful chants before the lyrics kick in!

KainBlue Guerrilla ... LP
Juggernaut, Early 70s. Sealed (reissue)... $9.99
One of the rawest, hardest-hitting albums of soul poetry of the 70s! Kain – aka Gylan Kain – was a member of the original Last Poets, a group who emerged in New York during the late 60s, but were eclipsed by the second (more famous) ensemble sharing the name who recorded for Douglas Records. Kain's anger and passion is incredible – far stronger than anything you'd hear on any of the better-known Last Poets records of the early 70s – and this solo record is completely over the top, both politically and performance-wise. The record has a hard hard hard sound – with over-the-top spoken bits that almost make the other Last Poets seem like they're kind of mellow. Cuts include "Silly Sh*t", "Harlem Preacher", "I Ain't Black", and "Constipated Monkey". Juggy Murray produced – and the album's a wild wild trip! LP, Vinyl record album

Last PoetsRight On! ... LP
Juggernaut, 1968. Very Good- Gatefold ... $9.99
One of the wildest albums ever by the mighty Last Poets! Billed as "a woodstock in poetry", this is the soundtrack to the obscure film Right On (billed as "the hit film" on the cover), which was shot using the first version of the Last Poets that included Felipe Lucianao, David Nelson, and the wild card Gylan Kain – a group who originally had the name and style of protest poetry, but who had been eclipsed when the poet Abiodun left them and formed the group that first recorded for Douglas Records. The album, sort of a "we're back" effort, was produced by Juggy Murray, and apparently all recorded at the Cubiculo Theatre in New York – and it's one of two albums on the Juggernaut label, which also featured Kain's solo record. Most of the record is spare percussion, with the band shouting over the top – and the sound is even rawer than the group's first LP on Douglas. The titles should say it all – as the record features "My Pretty N*gger", "Tell Me Brother", "Die Nigga!", "James Brown", "Soul", "Poetry Is Black", "Into The Streets", and "Library", clearly a big influence on KRS-1.
