D'AngeloLive At The Jazz Cafe, London – The Complete Show ... LP
EMI, 2000. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $27.99 34.99
The first-ever full length presentation of a legendary live set from D'Angelo – recorded early in his career, and working through a host of classic tunes that really add in a nice layer to his own great music! D'Angelo's caught here in the legendary temple of groove – London's Jazz Cafe, home to some of the best funk and soul shows in Europe over the past few decades – and a perfect setting for the singer to really break past his more hitbound material, and relaxed in an old school format with a tight funky combo on the stage. The crowd is extremely enthusiastic, and the whole thing falls together beautifully – with a hard raw soul vibe that's similar to, but edgier than, D'Angelo's studio albums – much funkier overall, and more in a 70s soul mode. Instrumentation is very heavy on Fender Rhodes – and titles include "Sh*t, Damn, Motherf*cker", "Me & Those Dreamin Eyes Of Mine", "Brown Sugar", and "Cruisin" – plus great covers of 70s soul hits "Fencewalk", "Can't Hide Love" and "Sweet Sticky Thing". 2LP set features titles never issued before – including a 9 minute long take on "Lady".

First CircleBoys Night Out ... LP
EMI, 1987. Near Mint- ... $7.99
An overlooked killer from First Circle – the only album ever cut by this obscure Brooklyn group, and a sweet set of 80s groove all the way through! There's a tight bounce to the whole record – thanks in part to production from Randy Muller, who gives the set the same focus and energy as his work at the time with Brass Construction – but minus the brass, of course! Randy plays keyboards on the record, and those keys really dominate the overall groove – stepping tightly over bassy bottoms, with a rhythmic focus that almost outweighs the vocals – making lots of these cuts perfect for mixing and dropping on an 80s-styled dancefloor. Titles include "Workin Up A Sweat", "Miracle Worker", "Can't Find A Love", "In The Name Of Love", "Boys' Night Out", and "You're On My Mind". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Melba MooreWhat A Woman Needs ... LP
EMI, 1981. Very Good+ ... $4.99
An early 80s set from Melba Moore – with some bubbling club soul grooves carried over from the 70s, plus spacier and funkier touches – largely produced by McFadden & Whitehead and featuring Kashif on moog bass! Given the production style here and the release date, we get the feeling that Melba & co. were resisting the prominent drum machine sound and otherwise more programmed backdrops that were taking hold in chart soul at the time, and even if she'd succeed with the more pronounced 80s vibe just a little later on, this record still feels plenty modern to our ears. A slept on gem! Includes "Let's Stand Together", "Your Sweet Lovin'", "What A Woman Needs", "Take My Love", "Overnight Sensation", "Each Second", "Piece Of The Rock", "Let's Go Back To Lovin" and more.

✨✧ Caron WheelerUK Blak ... LP
EMI, 1990. Used ... Out Of Stock
Caron Wheeler's first album after parting company with Jazzy B & Soul II Soul – still done in a very Soul II Soul-like style, though, with plenty of chunky beats that work well with Caron's deeply soulful vocals. There's a different producer on nearly every track – including Carl Macintosh, Blacksmith, Afrika Baby Bam, Derek Johnson, and Steely & Clive – and titles include "Never Lonely", "UK Blak", "Livin In The Light", "Enchanged", "This Is Mine", "No Regrets", and "Proud".

✨✧ Labi SiffreFor The Children (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
EMI/Edsel (UK), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really wonderful album from singer/songwriter Labi Siffre – a set that has him exploring a few more righteous themes than before, but still mostly stepping along in that more compressed pop of his earliest albums! The tunes are catchy, compelling, and done in that great blend of acoustic guitar and flanged-out vocals that made Siffre's 70s work so great – a sound that's slightly aligned with the groove of Gilbert O'Sullivan, but a bit more soul based overall. There's a subdued sense of drama here on the best tunes – one that puts them over earnestly without going too far over the top – and slight electric touches spice things up a bit, and point towards funkier work to come. Titles include "Someday", "Children Of Children", "Entertainment Value", "Somesay", "Odds & Ends", "Let's Pretend", and "If You Have Faith". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Labi SiffreSinger & The Song (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
EMI/Edsel (UK), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An incredible record from Labi Siffre – spare, simple, and totally beautiful – in a space beyond category! The album is the sort that should have been a real standout in the 70s – early work by one of the freshest songwriters to hit the British scene, sung in a style that's a bit jazzy, a bit soulful – with playful inflections that never get in the way of the beautiful lyrics at all. Labi's got a unique blend of modes here that ranks with a rare few in music – Terry Callier, Joni Mitchell, and a few other beyond-category artists from the same generation. The whole thing's extremely beautiful – and Labi's voice and guitar are backed by some subtle arrangements that shade in the bottom with electric keys, a bit of bass, spare strings – and sometimes nothing at all! Titles include "Thank You Lucky Star", "Bless The Telephone", "There's Nothing In The World Like Love", "You're Lovely", "A Number Of Words", "Who Do You See", "Not So Long Ago", "Relax", and "Interlude".

Fela & Africa 70Afrodisiac (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Knitting Factory, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
A stunner from Fela – a record that really leaps right into the groove right from the very first note – then never lets up at all! Igo Chiko provides some fantastic tenor sax solos on the tunes – and both Tunde Williams and Eddie Faychum serve up some killer trumpet – while the rest of the group moves at amazing speed, driven on by the legendary drums of Tony Allen! Fela handles a bit of keyboards, with a really cool, moody sound alongside the groove – and the whole thing was recorded at Abbey Road Studios, which might have been a surprising change from some of the more staid material in the halls of EMI. Titles include "Alu Jon Jonki Jon", "Jeu Ko Ku", and "Eko Ile". (Global Grooves, Soul) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Fela Kuti & Africa 70Open & Close (Philips) ... LP
Philips (Nigeria), 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hard to find Fela album from the 70's, recorded for EMI with his crack group from the 70's. 3 looooong cuts (as usual): "Open & Close", "Swegbe & Pako", and "Gbagada Gbagada Gbogodo Gbogodo". Lots of tight grooves, long funk jams, and excellent playing throughout. (Global Grooves, Soul) LP, Vinyl record album
(NOTE: FAIR CONDITION. 1987 Nigerian pressing on Philips. Cover has some wear. Vinyl plays with some clicks & crackles.)

✨✧ Fela & Africa 70Fela's London Scene (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A great batch of rare tracks from the legendary Fela Kuti – unreleased for many years after their recording – which was done in London in 1971, when EMI sent Fela to the UK for a special session at their Abbey Road studios! The set benefits from the great production values of that historic place – and the band grooves tightly in tracks that are a little bit shorter than usual, but which still burn with all the intensity of the later African recordings – almost a more focused approach that draws a bit more link between American funk before some of the freewheeling jams of the side-long Afro Funk tracks! Titles include "J'ehin J'ehin", "Egbe Mi O", "Who're You", "Buy Africa", and "Fight To Finish". (Global Grooves, Soul) LP, Vinyl record album
