✨✧ VariousI Got Soul – Blacksploitation Mood ... CD
Playoff (France), Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Classic funky soul from the 70s – a set that definitely lives up to the blacksploitation groove promised in the title, thanks to a host of classics from the left field of the funky spectrum! Some of these cuts are well-remembered from back in the day, but most are the kind of underground tracks that have grown in strength over the years – thanks to circulation as hip hop samples, or on rare groove playlists – and in fact, the whole track list here might well read as kind of a dream list to hear on a funky dancefloor! Titles include "I Believe In Miracles" by The Jackson Sisters, "Give Me Your Love" by Sisters Love, "Across 110th Street" by Bobby Womack, "Testify" by Johnnie Taylor, "Talkin Loud & Sayin Nothin" by James Brown, "Love Me Back" by Willie Hutch, "I Cry" by Millie Jackson, "Hang Out & Hustle" by Sweet Charles, "Brother Louie" by Undisputed Truth, "Superfly" by Curtis Mayfield, and "Who Is He & What Is He To You" by Creative Source.

James BrownPure Dynamite! ... CD
King/Universal (Japan), 1964. Used ... $13.99
Raw live energy from the great James Brown – and a record that comes hot on the heels of Live At The Apollo! Like that one, this set was supposedly "recorded on the spot" – and it's even harder, faster, and noisier than that classic – with a loud-bursting sound that definitely lives up to the "dynamite" title, and which is far more unbridled than James on his King studio albums. The crowds seem to get equal time in front of the microphones as James – further enforcing the liveness of the record – and titles include "I'll Never Let You Go", "Good Good Lovin", "Shout & Shimmy", "Like A Baby", and "I'm Tired But I'm Clean". Album cover is great too – with a cool gatefold cover that's filled with photos of James, fans, and some lovely ladies! CD

Bo Diddley/Muddy Waters/Little WalterSuper Blues ... CD
Chess/MCA, 1967. Used ... $14.99
A Chicago blues trifecta – and the first time ever that Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley, and Little Waters ever worked together! The set's got a raw power that definitely lives up to the title – a wicked mix of raw guitars, rough rhythms, and some wonderfully soulful vocals – all served up in a style that has the modes of each different player stepping forth into the limelight from track to track, but with the others shouldering forth themselves to challenge the lead! The mix of Bo's twang and Muddy's grit is mighty nice – and Little Walter helps bring a soulful focus that really holds the whole thing together. Titles include "I'm A Man", "Who Do You Love", "Bo Diddley", "I Just Want To Make Love To You", "My Baby", "Long Distance Call", and "You Don't Love Me". (Blues, Soul) CD

EthicsBest Of The Ethics ... CD
Jamie/Guyden, Late 60s. Used ... $8.99
Some of the greatest vocal group work to ever come out of the Philly scene – sweet, soaring harmony soul from The Ethics – a group whose recordings were a key precursor to the sound of 70s Philly! The group sported an especially great vocalist in the young Ron Tyson – who had a crackling tenor approach that was instantly recognizable, and which gives these tunes an earnest, honest quality that grabs us right away. And added to that are arrangements by Thom Bell and Vince Montana – a great way to mix the rough with the smooth, and wrap things up with the kind of complexity that few other groups could hope to match at the time – save for the young O'Jays or The Intruders! The CD features a total of 16 tracks – some of which were issued as singles on the Vent label, others which appear here for the first time – and titles include "Standing In The Darkness", "Sad Sad Story", "Searching", "Keep Away From My Baby", "Lost In A Lonely World", "Standing In The Darkness", "Now Is The Time", "Lonely Hearts", and "I Want My Baby Back".

VariousDave Hamilton's Detroit Soul ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s. Used ... $9.99
Rare Detroit soul from the archives of Dave Hamilton – the vast majority from the fertile late 60s period, plus a couple of later cuts – soulful Hamilton productions and featuring wonderful numbers by Bobby Dee, Priscilla Page, The Moderations, Frenchy & The Chessmen, Harry Reid, Charmaine, Sue Ann Jones, Emanuel Taylor, Billy Soul and more! Hamilton may not be one of the best known names in the soul music canon, but his imprint is massive – both as a producer and performer. This great Ace comp of rare singles is a fine document and it's filled with excellent tracks. A treasure trove! 25 tracks in all: "Take Care Of Your Own Business" by Dave Hamilton, "Sweet Thing Part 1" by Bobby Dee, "I'm Pretending" by Priscilla Page, "I'm Begging You" by Chicago Pete, "All Because Of You" by The Moderations, "You Gotta Show Me" by Billy Soul, "Won't You Come On Home by Harry Reid, "Don't You Listen" by Charmain, "Missing You" by Sue Ann Jones and more.

VariousModern Vocal Groups Vol 6 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... $6.99
A huge discovery in vocal group material from the 50s – served up in this excellent series of tracks from the vaults of LA's Modern Records label! Most folks associate the early vocal group sounds with the east coast or Chicago scenes of the postwar years – but there was also plenty of harmonizing and doo wop on the west coast, too – although sometimes not as well-exposed as the bigger hits back east! This series really corrects that mistake – and serves up a stunning wealth of work from the early Cali scene – tracks recorded by the Modern Records label, a company with a rich legacy in jump blues, R&B, and other hip postwar styles – all of which they brought to play on their recordings in a vocal group mode. The Modern approach often has some wonderful arrangements that further empower the vocals – a harder swing that gives the singers the same push as some of the label's solo acts – and as usual for Ace Records, this collection moves way past the hits, to include some unreleased tracks, and rare singles from the Modern, RPM, Crown, and Flair labels. Volume 6 moves a bit into the early soul years – and features 24 tracks that include "This Heart Of Mine" by Curley Williams, "B Bomb Baby" by The Jewels, "LFMST Blues" by The Meadowlarks, "Sweet Thing" by The Rams, "Maybe I'm Wrong" by Bobby Sanders, "If Love Was Money" by Tony Allen & The Wanderers, "Love Can Do Most Everything" by The Cadets, "Dear One" by Marvin & Johnny, "One More Kiss" by The Senders, "Always On My Mind" by The A-Rabs, "Crazy Feeling" by Etta James, and "She's A Flirt" by The Jewels.

✨✧ Average White BandCut The Cake/Soul Searching/Benny & Us ... CD
Edsel (UK), Mid 70s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavy funk from the glory years of Average White Band – three albums on a single 2CD set! Cut The Cake is a killer – and if you need to own one album by Average White Band, this may be it! The album features the band at their funky best – playing hard and chopping away with a strong crossover sound that put them firmly on the map during the early 70s. Loads of tight rolling basslines and hard drums – all produced with that polished funky sound that was the band's stock-in-trade during the big chart years! The record includes their funky classic "School Boy Crush", still a sampling favorite – plus loads of other nice moments, like "If I Ever Lose This Heaven", "Cloudy", "High Flyin Woman", and the hit title cut "Cut The Cake". Soul Searching is sublime mid 70s work from The Average White Band – and a record that really has the group deepening their groove a bit – moving past the heavier funk of their roots, into some mellower grooves that are totally great! There's a great undercurrent of jazz in some of the playing here – a real consciousness for clever changes, hip instrumental flourishes, and some other fusion-inspired moments – although all delivered with an understated quality that's mighty nice. The feel's a bit like The Headhunters on their second album, or some of the great Wayne Henderson groups on Fantasy – a great mix of jazz funk and soul that makes the record one of our favorites by the group. Titles include "Sunny Days", "Digging Deeper", "Love Your Life", "Queen Of My Soul", and the stellar mellow "A Love Of Your Own". On Benny & Us, Ben E King joins the Average White Band for this sweet 70s set – a killer record that not only stands as one of King's best efforts of the decade, but one that also gives the group a great new frontman! Ben's not the only singer on the record, but his presence here can definitely be felt – deepening up the grooves nicely, and giving the already-great AWB sound an even more badass feel! Titles include the classic "Star In The Ghetto", a funky remake of "What Is Soul", an earlier hit for King – plus "Keepin It To Myself", "Imagine", "Someday We'll All Be Free", "Get It Up For Love", and "The Message".
