Jesse GreenNice & Slow ... LP
EMI (UK), 1976. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A classic set from Jessie Green – the singer's biggest album ever, and a great blend of 70s soul with deeper Caribbean roots! Jessie hails from Jamaica, and got his start in reggae – but by the time of this record, he was reaching out with a wider, global sort of style – one that has island rhythms bubbling amidst warmer modern soul arrangements – all in a blend that's completely sublime, and which has some of the same tight-grooving appeal as the best Miami soul of the TK Records scene! The set features the classic "Nice & Slow" – a tune that's more midtempo than you'd guess from the title – and lots of other great tracks that include "Don't Do it", "Will You Won't You", Come With Me", "Flip", "The Greatest Love", "Don't Knock My Love", "You Came You Saw You Conquered", and "Let's Go". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small cutout hole and small initials in pen on back.)

Labi SiffreRemember My Song ... LP
EMI/Mr Bongo (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
Easily the best-remembered album by Labi Siffre – thanks to some well-used sample tracks over the years! But over and above the fame of the funky tunes "The Vulture" and "I Got The", the record's a key part of Siffre's 70s catalog – a record that's as great for its complex songwriting and deeply personal lyrics as it is for its Fender Rhodes lines, and tight musical backings from the combo of Big Jim Sullivan. All titles here are originals, and even when the groove slows down there's a depth that clearly marks Labi as one of the best singer/songwriters of the 70s – a talent who's been finally rediscovered in recent years, although sometimes only remembered for a few jazzy hooks from these tunes, and not the strength of the whole magilla! Here's your chance to dip into the Siffre sound at its fullest – on tracks that include "The Vulture", "I Got The", "Another Year", "Down", "Old Time Song", "Sadie & The Devil", "Remember My Song", and "Turn On Your Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice heavy-cover vinyl reissue!)
Also available Remember My Song ... CD 14.99

Stevie WonderLight My Fire ... LP
EMI/Motown (UK), Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Even though Stevie's wearing some very groovy 70s garb on the cover of this compilation that was issued in the 70s, the material here is collected from his earlier years at Motown. There's some of the hits that put him on the map and a number of covers, including "I Was Made To Love Her", "Send Me Some Lovin", "My Girl", "Can I Get A Witness", "Sunny", "God Bless The child" and "Please, Please, Please". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ GonzalezOur Only Weapon Is Our Music ... LP
EMI, 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
A killer bit of work from this jazzy funky soul combo from the UK! This was one of two albums the band put out during the 70s – and it's a mix of styles that runs from choppy jazz fusion through white boy funky soul, ala Average White Band. There are vocals on about half the tracks, and they're not bad – but the real strength of the group is their instrumentation, which is tight on every cut, especially the drums and bass. Titles include "DNS", "Rissoled", "Ain't It Funky", "Got My Eye On You", and "White Lightning". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Brass ConstructionConversations ... LP
Capitol/EMI, 1983. Used ... Out Of Stock
A lesser-remembered gem from Brass Construction – and a tight bit of 80s groove that builds nicely on the group's ensemble funk work of the 70s! The group's still quite large, with a brassy finish that befits their name – but there's also a nice undercurrent of funky guitar, bass, and keyboards – riffing in a mode that has some nice jazzy licks from time to time, and fits well with some of the sweeter vocals on the set. Titles include "Easy", "Physical Attraction", "I Do Love You", "No Communication", and "We Can Work It Out". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo stamp and a razor mark.)
