Arthur ConleySweet Soul Music ... LP
Atco, 1967. Very Good ... $24.99
One of the all-time soul classics from Atlantic – the fantastic debut of singer Arthur Conley, introduced as a protege of Otis Redding, who also produced the record! The sound is similar to Otis' own work, but often a fair bit rawer – and Redding works here with both Jim Stewart of Stax and Rick Hall of Fame Studios, ensuring that the album has equal doses of Memphis and Muscle Shoals in the mix! Otis also wrote some great tracks for the album, along with Conley and the legendary Dan Penn – and although the title track is Conley's huge single "Sweet Soul Music", the album is filled with loads of other great original tracks, including "Who's Foolin' Who", "There's A Place For Us", "Wholesale Love", "I'm Gonna Forget About You", and "Let Nothing Separate Us".

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

✨✧ Sly & The Family StoneHigh Energy ... LP
Epic, Late 60s/1975. Very Good 2LP ... $6.99
A 2LP set issued in the mid 70s that collects some of Sly's best moments from the early days at Epic! As you'd expect by the title, the focus is on funky material – but even more importantly, the set brings together album cuts that go past the more famous singles you'd find on Sly's "greatest hits" set. Titles include "Dynamite", "Chicken", "Jane Is A Groupee", "I'm An Animal", "M'Lady", "Turn Me Loose", "Run Run Run", "Underdog", and "Plastic Jim". LP, Vinyl record album

Melvin Van PeeblesBrer Soul ... LP
A&M, 1968. Sealed Gatefold ... $24.99
Amazing stuff from Melvin Van Peebles! Brer Soul is a mad mix of funky soul insanity and straight up wisdom – a mix of moods that also seems to inform the best of his films, now that we think about it – and it's put together with enough wild clashes of culture to shake anyone up. Funk, soul, jazz, poetry, and righteousness blend into a great batch of tracks! Includes groovy cuts like "Lilly Done the Zampoughi Everytime I Pulled Her Coattail", "Mirror Mirror On The Wall", "The Coolest Place In Town", "The Dozens", "Tenth And Greenwich (Women's House Of Detention)", and "Sera Sera Jim". It's the right kind of late 60s crazy from one of the most unique artists ever to pick up a microphone, camera or any other artistic medium put of front of him! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousHenry Stone's Miami Sound – The Record Man's Finest 45s ... LP
Athens Of The North (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $25.99
One of the coolest collections of music we've ever heard from the legendary TK Records in Miami – a company that was a powerhouse of 70s hits and disco classics – but which also cut some wonderful underground soul at the time! This sublime set looks at that great lesser-known legacy of TK – the hipper, more sophisticated music they cut in between the chart numbers and boogie singles – often by soul artists who had some involvement with bigger acts, but who really got a chance here to shine on their own! There's a surprising amount of funk in the mix – that deeper current that made Miami a key heir to 60s funky styles from Memphis and New Orleans – and there's some equally great modern soul, but served up with a complexity that goes way past the usual – both in the songwriting and arrangements. If you've only heard TK hit collections, you'll find plenty to love here – and even for deeper diggers like us, there's still plenty of new bits to be discovered! Titles include "Confusion" by Leno Phillips, "You Knock Me Out" by Wildflower, "Hey There Jim" by Jimmy Bo Horne, "Tears Of The World" by Robert Moore, "I Got Bills To Pay" by Johnny K, "I Want To Be Loved" by Stevens & Foster, "Sleep On Dream On" by Raphael Munnings, "Life Is A Beautiful Feeling" by Formula 1, "Bahama Soul Stew" by Funky Nassau, "Lay It On Me" by Willie Johnson, "The Silence That You Keep (version 1)" by Milton Wright, and "There Must Be Something" by Friday Saturday & Sunday.

✨✧ Brian & Brenda RussellWord Called Love ... LP
Rocket, 1976. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Partly a soul set, and partly an adult contemporary one – and almost a precursor to the male/female duet style that would play into pop more fully a decade later – one that takes a bit of familiar emotion and spins it out over relatively time-tested themes. Brian and Brenda sing all lead vocals, and they've got some all-star help from Elton John and members of his band – plus Steve Cropper, James Newton Howard, Jim Horn, and others. Titles include "Please Pardon Me", "Livin With You", "You'll Never Rock Alone", "A Player In The Band", "Tell Me When The Whistle Blows", and "Highly Prized Possession". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gladys Knight & The PipsImagination ... LP
Buddah, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pivotal album for Gladys Knight and group – as the record features their super-huge hit "The Midnight Train To Georgia", a landmark track that not only had a catchy pop hook, but which spoke volumes about African-American migration in the postwar years. The track's one of those you've heard a million times, but it's got a strength that still holds up tremendously. Part of this is due to great production work by Tony Camillo – who handled arrangements and studio work on about half the tracks – and part is due to Jim Weatherly, who wrote the song, and about half the others on the album. The whole album's great – one of the best Buddah Records moments for the group – and titles include "I've Got To Use My Imagination", "Window Raising Granny", "Where Peaceful Waters Flow", "Once In A Lifetime Thing", "Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me", and "Storms Of Trouble Times".

Blue Thumb/Chisa, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent little record from Hugh Masekela – cut right during that perfect time when he was mixing soul, funk, and just the right amount of jazz to keep things real! The record features some nice electric piano from Joe Sample, and the best cuts have a choppy funky groove. Some cuts have vocals, but the best moments are instrumental – like the riffs on "Jungle Jim", "Night In Tunisia", and "In The Marketplace". (Global Grooves, Soul) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ DramaticsDramatic Experience ... LP
Volt, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic early work from The Dramatics – an amazing blend of sweet soul harmony vocals, Memphis soul production, and some other-worldly songwriting that far surpasses later work of the group. This album's one of the band's most righteous, with a mixture of Curtom-type message cuts and sweeter love songs – and it includes the cuts "The Devil is Dope", "Beware of the Man (With The Candy In His Hand)", "Jim, What's Wrong With Him?", and "Hey You! Get Off My Mountain". Stellar soul sound, with a vibe that's unlike a lot of other stuff on the Stax/Volt label! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Al WilsonSearching For The Dolphins ... LP
Soul City, 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful early album from soul singer Al Wilson – a well-crafted mix of modes that really stands out in late 60s pop – and which showed that Al was quite different than most of his contemporaries! The album's got some very hip production by Johnny Rivers – who was really stretching out his own sound at the time – and arrangements are by Gene Page and Marty Paich, who create a sublime blend of jazz, soul, and strings – plus a slight undercurrent of more righteous modes from the late 60s post-folk underground! In addition to straighter soul, Wilson sings a mix of hip contemporary compositions by Fred Neil, Jimmy Webb, and others – showing a depth of sound that's really wonderful. Instrumentation's by a small combo that includes Hal Blaine on drums, Larry Knechtel on keyboards, and some especially great flute from Jim Horn – whose sound here really brings some dark moments to the record. Titles include a classic version of Oscar Brown Jr's "The Snake" – which has gone onto become something of a dancefloor stormer over the years – plus the cuts "Shake Me Wake Me", "I Stand Accused", "Who Could Be Lovin You", "Brother Where Are You", "Summer Rain", "Do What You Gotta Do", and a groovy cover of Fred Neil's "The Dolphins".

✨✧ Bama – The Village PoetGhettos Of The Mind ... LP
Aware, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A lost classic in the funky poetry mode of the 70s – and right up there with the best work from the time by the Last Poets, Jim Ingram, or Gil Scott Heron! Bama's got a rough-edged voice that works very well with the funkier backings of the set – handled by a team that includes Bernard Purdie on drums, Richard Tee on keyboards, and Cornell Dupree on guitar – and this rough vocal style also fits the themes of the tunes, which are still as political and righteous as other work in the genre, but a bit more down to earth as well. The music itself was arranged and composed by Jimmy Wizner and Billy Jackson – and titles include "Ghettos Of The Mind", "The Right To Be Wrong", "Nothingness", "Drunken Sister", "I Got Soul", "Welfare Slave", "Social Narcotics, and "Blackman, My Brother".

✨✧ Clea BradfordNow ... LP
Mainstream, Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
On earlier recordings, Clea was much more of a bluesy singer with a strong R&B sound. On this one, arranger Jim Tyler nicely uncovers a sweeter, more sophisticated side to her singing – and sets her voice in some larger arrangements with a very mellow sound. In a way, the overall approach is similar to early 60s work by Sarah Vaughan or Dinah Washington – with a slyly subtle approach that's nicely supported by the singer's rich vocal tradition. Titles include "Little Boy Bad", "I Had A Ball", "All Around The World", "Row, Row, Row", "Hey Look Me Over", and "After You". LP, Vinyl record album

Roy AyersVirgo Red ... LP
Polydor, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A great little album from Roy Ayers – a very funky record that's almost all instrumental all the way through! The sound is a bit in the vein of Roy's Live At Montreux set – but funkier overall, thanks to some very heavy rhythms on the bottom – and an approach to the tunes that's short, tight, and very much on the money! In addition to Roy's great vibes, the set also features Harry Whitaker on electric piano, Jimmy Owens and Cecil Bridgewater on trumpets, Garnett Brown on trombone, and Dennis Davis on drums and percussion – all very hip players who really help Roy find the mix of jazz and funk he was going for at the time. Dee Dee Bridgewater sings a bit of vocals on the record, joining Roy on the sublime spiritual track "Love From The Sun" – but most other tracks on the album have a more instrumental approach. The record includes a great remake of Leroy Hutson's track "Giving Love", sung more famously by Voices of East Harlem, and it's also got a nice funky cover of the hit "Brother Louie" – plus the tracks "The Morning After", "Des Nude Soul", "Virgo Red", "Love From The Sun", and "I Am Your Mind".

Solomon BurkeProud Mary ... LP
Bell, 1969. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Solomon Burke may be most famously known for his early recordings for Atlantic Records – but he still sounds pretty darn great on this set, recorded at Fame Studios in 1969, and with a rootsier feel than before! Solomon himself handled the arrangements, and co-produced with Tamiko Jones – and the instrumentation is quite lean and very stripped-down – drums from Roger Hawkins, guitar from Jimmy Johnson and Eddie Hinton, and keyboards from Barry Beckett – all burning down at the bottom range of the Muscle Shoals spectrum! Titles include a surprisingly great remake of "Proud Mary", plus "These Arms Of Mine", "I Can't Stop", "What Am I Living For", "Uptight Good Woman", "Don't Wait Too Long", and Solomon's own "How Big A Fool (Can a Fool Be)".

Not one of Jimmy's strongest – kind of a batch of smooth tunes going for that bass-heavy early 80s approach to funk. Jimmy, as usual, plays a host of instruments and sings lead vocals – and he's got backup vocals on the album by The Chantels, who almost do a kind of Parlet kind of thing on the faster tracks. Titles include "Psych Out", "Goodbye", "I Just Wanna Stop", "Party People", and "Don't Do That". LP, Vinyl record album

Excellent raw live set from the early 70s – featuring a host of artists from the RCA stable, all paying tribute to the late Dr. Martin Luther King. The best stuff on here is by Jimmy Castor, and the album includes a totally funky remake of "Hey Leroy" that's got little bits of "Trogolodyte" style funk – plus a version of "Trogolodyte" itself, and more. Other highlights include The Main Ingredient doing "Spinning Around", "Everybody Plays The Fool", and the Isley's great "Work To Do". Lots more by Flip Wilson, Jose Feliciano, Friends of Distinction, and others – plus some words of wisdom by Coretta King! LP, Vinyl record album

CherrelleAffair ... LP
Tabu, 1988. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis classic – and key proof that their pairing with singer Cherrelle was a mighty good thing! Cherrelle's got a voice that's perfect for the beat-heavy approach of the pair – light enough to dance around the rhythms, but bold enough with a presence all its own, too – a quality that helps keep most of these tunes pretty darn catchy, while still staying in front of some of the blander mainstream soul of the time. The groove here is practically early new jack at times – with some great influences from hip hop and electro in the mix – and titles include "Looks Aren't Everything", "Affair", "Discreet", "Everything I Miss At Home", "Keep It Inside", "My Friend", and "What More Can I Do For You".

Ronnie Dyson(If You Let Me Make Love To You Then) Why Can't I Touch You? (first cover version) ... LP
Columbia, Early 70s. Very Good ... $1.99
A wonderful first album from Ronnie Dyson – a set that's mostly soul, but also has some nicely trippy touches too – which provides a great springboard for Dyson's famous role in the musical Hair! Ronnie's got a voice that's gospelly deep at times – able to soar out with these bold lines that really state his presence, even when the overall backings might be laidback and slightly mellow. The set was recorded at the start of the 70s, and has this great balance between 60s uptown soul styles and some of the groovier, more sophisticated modes that were coming in at the time – a mode that makes Dyson sound nice and adult overall, even though his image on the cover is somewhat youthful. Most arrangements are by Jimmy Wisner, who blends together soaring strings, backing vocals, and some sweet standout instrumental moments – on titles that include "Why Can't I Touch You?", "Fever", "She's Gone", "I Just Can't Help Believin", "Band Of Gold", "Emmie", and "I Don't Wanna Cry".

Alton EllisSoul Train Is Coming ... LP
Rockashacka (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $24.99
One of the more obscure sides of work from the legendary Alton Ellis – but one of the best as well! The set features some cuts issued by Alton on his own Ellis label – and many of the numbers here feature the singer acting as a producer too – a surprisingly strong side of his talents, as he's able to craft just the right sort of laidback rocksteady grooves for his wonderfully soulful voice! Alton never broke as big on an international scale as artists like Peter Tosh or Jimmy Cliff – but hearing these tracks, you'll definitely feel the way in which the paths Ellis took were clearly roads that allowed much bigger reggae grown in years to come! Titles include "My Time Is The Right Time", "I Love You Girl", "Again". "Dedication", "Baby Talk", "Past Time", "Soul Train Is Coming", "Bam Bye", "If I Had The Right", and "Big News".

5th DimensionWorst That Could Happen (aka The Magic Garden) ... LP
Soul City, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $2.99
The second version of the Magic Garden LP, simply brilliant work – arguably the best album the 5th Dimension ever cut! The reason for this is Jimmy Webb – who arranged and conducted the album, which is comprised entirely of his own work. Gone are the simple pop tunes of earlier years, and in their place are some incredibly dark tunes that ride the razor edge between love and sadness in the best mode of Bacharach's genius work from the same time. Includes the sublime "The Girl's Song", a track that out-Bacharachs Burt himself – plus "Requiem 820 Latham", "The Worst That Could Happen", "Paper Cup", and "Carpet Man". LP, Vinyl record album

FunkadelicStanding On The Verge Of Getting It On (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
A blistering little set from Funkadelic – one that features the return of Eddie Hazel's guitar, finely honed to the leaner, more soul-based sound of the group in the mid 70s! The title is prophetic, as the group are really "standing on the verge" here – working hard to tighten up their sound from the more rock-based years, and moving into a catchier funk groove that would put them over the top for many records to come! The title cut "Standing On The Verge" is one of the most anthemic funk tracks you'll ever find – with a chorus and groove that will stay in your head for years after you first hear the song – and there's lots of other tasty tracks like that on the set, really honing the Funkadelic approach down into an incredibly powerful sound! Titles include "I'll Stay", "Standing On The Verge", "Good Thoughts Bad Thoughts", "Red Hot Mama", "Jimmy's Got a Little Bit of Bitch In Him", and "Sexy Ways". LP, Vinyl record album

Vee Jay/Kent (UK), 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Stellar work by Jimmy Hughes – one of those southern soul talents whose name you've heard, but can't always find on record! Jimmy's best known for his classic Muscle Shoals tune "Steal Away" – and that great number, plus many other similar ones, are presented on this obscure Vee Jay release – issued at a time when both that label and Chess were licensing a number of titles from Rick Hall's Fame studios. The sound is great – a key link in the southern scene of the 60s, and one that's often lost because it wasn't recorded for a bigger label, like Atlantic. Titles include "Steal Away", "Try Me", "I Want Justice", "Shot Of Rhythm & Blues", "Neighbor Neighbor", "I'm Getting Better", and "I'm Gonna Rise Again". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy G & The TackheadsFederation Of The Tackheads ... LP
Capitol, 1985. Near Mint- ... $6.99
An obscure early 80s electro effort from George Clinton – all the more surprising, given how much he pretended to hate hip hop! At some level, Jimmy G & The Tackheads are mostly an 80s groove outfit – using lots of bass and keys to pop and lock the groove, while throwing in plenty of wikki-wikki instrumental touches to complicate things. And at another level, there's even a bit of Go-Go inspiration in the mix – particularly in the use of percussion on a few tracks, and the overall party feel of the set. But given the name of the group, and the kind of "street" feel of the album's graphics (which includes a lot of photos and images of early 80s street hustler tackhead culture), the album's also trying for a definite appeal to the old school crowd – with a look that's trying for a lot more cred than Clinton's own work of the time. Jimmy G's actually Jimmy Giles, a relation of Clinton – but from the sound of things, George and co-producer Steve Washington are firmly in control – on tracks that include "Clockwork", "I Want Your Daughter", "Family Funk", "Lies", and "Slingshot".

Curtis Knight & The Squires feat Jimi HendrixYou Can't Use My Name – The RSVP/PPX Sessions (with bonus download) ... LP
Legacy/Experience Hendrix, Mid 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99 19.98
A brilliant presentation of this standout material from the early years of Jimi Hendrix – work done with the group of soul singer Curtis Knight – often issued in poor formats over the years, and finally brought out in all of its stunning glory! The recordings feature a young Hendrix on guitar – really wailing alongside Knight's combo The Squires – so much so that Jimi's often way out in the lead, with this raw, fuzzy power that really hints at his greatness to come – but which already has plenty of punch in this hard-hitting soul setting! Knight's a great singer too – kind of raw and raspy – and his use of Jimi's guitar in the combo often recalls some of the great guitar-driven work of Ike Turner during the early 60s. This stunning package remasters all the material, presents it with notes, and finally sheds real light on this stretch of Jimi's career that's always come out in shadier versions. Titles include the never-heard "Station Break" – plus "How Would You Feel", "Gotta Have A New Dress", "Fool For You Baby", "No Such Animal", "Strange Things", and "Knock Yourself Out".

Fantastic album of hardcore funky cuts, with a great jazzy tip on the righteous solos laid down by Maceo and the band. Recorded in the time that Maceo was away from James' band, with a crack lineup of players including Melvin Parker, Jimmy Nolan, Bernard Odom, and L.D. Williams. Nearly every cut is a lost funky gem, with funky bass, hard drums, and cool horn solos with a large sense of humor.

A later album by Barbara Mason – one in which she teams up with the Ingram family, and returns to a mellower style of earlier years! The approach is a good one – as Barbara shows off a deeper soul style of singing than was appearing on her clubbier albums of the time, sounding almost like a southern soul diva on a number of the mellower tracks. Arrangements are by Butch, Billy, and Jimmy Ingram – and Barbara wrote nearly every track on the album, with titles that include "You Did Not Stay Last Night", "All Inside Of Me", "Love Having You Around", "You Know Who I Love", "Let Me Give You Love", and "On & Off".

Jackie MittooJackie Mittoo – The Keyboard King At Studio One ... LP
Universal Sound/Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99
Killer funky organ – and 100% Dynamite! Jackie Mittoo is one of the all-time great organists – as essential to Jamaica as Booker T was to Memphis, or Jimmy McGriff was to New York. He's legendary these days as the player who completely transformed the Hammond sound with his unique Jamaican instrumental style during his early years with the Skatalites, and on his later solo recordings for Studio One. This set's probably the first time Mittoo's work has been properly packaged and remastered – and the folks at Soul Jazz have done an amazing job of selecting just the right tracks for such a project. The whole thing wails along with a stone rocksteady groove – with plenty of nice drum parts and funky rhythm bits underneath Jackie's soulful organ. If you dug the label's 100% Dynamite series, you'll really dig this one – and the whole thing's very much in the same vein. Tracks include "Drum Song", "Reggae Rock", "Hot Tamale", "Killer Diller", "Black Organ", "Stereo Freeze", "Wall Street", "Darker Shade Of Black", "Juice Box", and "Killer Diller".

Great early work from Melba Moore – recorded at a time when she was winning big accolades for her work on stage as a parody of Diana Ross in Hair – but stepping out here as a hell of a great soul singer on her own! The tunes have a groove that's a bit more complicated than the usual soul work of the time – charts by Charlie Calello that show all his wonderful background in creative pop in the 60s – plus a few more numbers charted by Thom Bell and Jimmy Wisner. Melba's vocals are superb – very on the money, no matter what the setting – and titles include "Captain St Lucifer", "I Got Love", "Time & Love", "I Love Making Love To You", "I Messed Up On A Good Thing", "Easy To Be Hard", and "The Facade".

✨✧ Laura NyroNew York Tendaberry ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Very Good ... $4.99
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".

Well, we don't think we'd call this the most exciting organ ever – but the record is one of Billy's best, and it's got a hard wailing raw groove that's missing from a lot of his later work! There's a very churchy sound in the organ, with all the stops open and a very large sound coming out of the speaker – and Billy wails in a manner that's similar to some of Jimmy McGriff's early work – nice and heavy at the bottom, with plenty of fluttering notes at the top!
