Formula 5 (Formula V)Determination ... LP
Malaco, 1985. Very Good ... $2.99
A Cali group, but one who cut this sweet 80s set for the Malaco label – a record that's definitely much more street beat oriented than most of the usual blues and southern soul you'd find on the imprint! The tunes have a snapping array of beats and keyboards, one that definitely matches the group's leather jackets on the cover – but the vocals can often be warmer than the instrumentation, with a nice indie soul feel throughout. Titles include "Back To Love", "Undercover Lover", "Killer Groove", "Love Hour", "Cleaning House", "Part Time Lover Full Time Fool", and "New Fool On The Block". LP, Vinyl record album

FreedomFarther Than Imagination ... LP
Malaco, 1978. Very Good ... $19.99
An amazing, unjustly obscure bit of southern funky soul – played with kind of a club oriented groove, and a strong nod towards middle-period Earth, Wind, & Fire – a far different vibe than a lot of the southern soul on the Malaco label! The band has some nice harmony vocals over a jazzy bass-heavy style – and the record mixes uptempo funky tracks with smoother mellower ones. Includes the dancefloor cuts "Dance Sing Along" and "Get Up And Dance" – plus great mellow numbers like "Summer Memory" and "Wake Up Your Mind". Other titles include "Farther Than Imagination", "Know You Better" and "You've Just Got To Be The One". LP, Vinyl record album

Denise LaSalleLady In The Street ... LP
Malaco, 1983. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A lady in the streets – and a freak in the bedroom! Hey, that's not us making that claim – it's Denise, on the leadoff track of this excellent early 80s set! Denise really pushes herself for the record – almost reinventing her sound, and coming up as one of the Queens of southern soul at the time – working in that tight blend of deep and bluesy soul that was the crowning achievement of the Malaco scene! The album's a lot rootsier than you'd guess from the date, and titles include "Lady In The Street", "This Bell Was Made For Ringing", "Lay Me Down", "Don't Mess With My Man", "I Was Not The Best Woman", and "I Was Tellin Him About You".

Dorothy MooreDorothy Moore ... LP
Malaco, 1977. Near Mint- ... $0.99
A great little record from Dorothy Moore – a singer who was to the emerging southern soul Malaco Records what Aretha Franklin was to Atlantic a few years before! Moore was one of the first really strong talents to emerge on the label – a great singer with a style that works equally well on deep soul, smooth soul, and uptempo material – all of which is brought into play here, with a well-rounded blend that makes for an extremely thoughtful outing. Moore's approach takes the hard soul diva approach into a more sophisticated vein, a bit like Jackie Moore a few years before, but pushing things even more strongly with a timeless vibe that never ges old. Titles include "Love Me", "I Believe In You", "Too Blind To See", "Loving You Is Just An Old Habit", and "For Old Time's Sake". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dorothy MooreMisty Blue ... LP
Malaco, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
A pivotal moment in the development of southern soul – as the album was one of the first really big hits to come out of the growing Malaco scene in Jackson, Mississippi. The style of the record is a mix of older female southern soul styles, plus some of the warmer mellow production that was coming out of the Alston/Miami scene at the same time. And although Malaco mostly moved into cheesy blues during the early 80s, this one's very much in a popular crossover soul style. Features the title hit "Misty Blue", plus "It's So Good", "Too Much Love", "Ain't That A Mother's Luck", "Enough Woman Left (To Be Your Lady)", and "The Only Time You Ever Say You Love Me".

Willie ClaytonCrossroad Of The Blues ... CD
KES, 2017. New Copy ... $9.99
Always-great work from Willie Clayton – a blues singer in scene, but one who often works with a sound that's equal part southern soul – especially that late 70s moment when some of the older southern soul singers moved onto the Malaco Records blues scene! Willie's recorded with Otis Clay in the past, and you can definitely hear a level of vocal phrasing that lives up to Clay's legacy – set to instrumentation that's a bit more Chicago electric blues overall, but well-crafted, without any sense of cliche. Titles include "We Had A Good Thang", "Keep On Loving Me", "Two Wrongs Don't Make It Right", "Backside Of Fifty", "Bartender Blues", and "Sneaking & Creeping". (Blues, Soul) CD

Thelma HoustonSummer Nights EP ... LP
Preservation (UK), 1980. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Fantastic work from Thelma Houston – material recorded in 1980, but never issued at the time – and maybe even better than most of Thelma's own records from the period! The tracks were recorded at Muscle Shoals, with tight production by Clayton Ivey and Terry Woodford – in a way that's nice and lean, but still very professionally done (these definitely aren't demo tracks!) – and which really showcase the deeper currents of Thelma's vocals! Most tracks have a midtempo groove, and a slight current of southern funk in the mix – nicely less commercial than some of Houston's bigger hits, and with a richness that feels more like some lost modern soul gem recorded for a southern label like TK or Malaco. The vinyl-only EP features 5 tracks in all – "Summer Nights", "Touch Me While I'm Dancing", "No Love In The Morning", "Slippin Up Slippin Around", and "Regrets". LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram vinyl.)

King FloydKing Floyd ... LP
Cotillion, 1971. Sealed ... $26.99
One of the best-remembered moments from the mighty King Floyd – a southern soul singer who came into the game slightly later than some of his Atlantic Records contemporaries, but who still packs a punch that's right up there with the best of them! The album's best known for the huge hit "Groove Me" – a slinky, catchy tune that's gotten King plenty of play over the years – but the whole thing is pretty darn great, and shows a new sound and style of southern soul coming into play – as Floyd's working in Jackson, at the Malaco Studios, with Wardell Quezergue producing – in a sound that's a bit free of some of the more obvious Memphis and Muscle Shoals modes, yet without any of the cliches that would later hold some folks back too. King balances things perfectly throughout – and in addition to "Groove Me", the set also features "Let Us Be", "Messing Up My Mind", "What Our Love Needs", and "Don't Leave Me Lonely". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Little MiltonFriend Of Mine ... LP
Glades, 1976. Good+ ... $9.99
Tight and soulful blues from Little Milton – just the sort of record that helped him cross over to bigger audiences back in the day, and a set that still sounds plenty great all these many years later! The set was done in Chicago – arranged by James Mack, with backing vocals from Kitty & The Haywoods – and the sound is a sweet west side mix of rootsy and soulful elements – a blend that shows the same growing sophistication of the Malaco scene at the time, at a level that moves nicely away from college circuit blues cliches of the 70s. Milton's vocals are wonderful – raspy and appealing with a Tyrone Davis-like charm – and titles include "Friend Of Mine", "Don't Turn Away", "You're Gonna Make Me Cry", "It's All Bad News", "Sundown", "Bring It On Back", and "Baby It Ain't No Way".

Mutt & Jeff, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the few albums we've ever seen on Joey Jefferson's Mutt & Jeff label – and a smooth bit of southern soul from Joyce Lawson. The set was recorded in LA, but it's got a feel that's very similar to work coming out of the Malaco scene in Jackson at the time – older southern soul styles infused with some of the more modern production techniques of the time. Titles include "Love Uprising", "Passion", "Stop Dogging Me", and "Try Me Tonight". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bettye LavetteTell Me A Lie ... CD
Motown/Reel Music, 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare set from legendary southern soul diva Betty Lavette – recorded as a one-off for Motown in the early 80s, but done in a deep soul style that has plenty of 70s touches! The feel here is almost in the Malaco mode – southern soul, but with some more sophisticated modern touches – an approach which takes Betty's great vocals and makes them come across with a warm, sensuous glow that's really great. And if you've got any doubts about the date of the record, or the label it's on, shelve them now – because this is a great record with plenty of wonderful mellow soul numbers that display a whole new side of Betty's talents – every bit as great as her earlier work for rootsier labels, and proof that she was always a shining star in the deep soul scene, no matter what the setting! Titles include "I Like It Like That", "Tell Me A Lie", "Right In The Middle", "Either Way We Lose", "Suspicions", and "Before I Knew Your Name". CD

✨✧ John EdwardsLife, Love, & Living ... LP
Cotillion, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
A stellar solo set from John Edwards – one of the tightest talents of the southern scene in the mid 70s, and a singer who would later break big with The Spinners! This album's got a really unique vibe – with some slight tropical touches hinted at by the cover image – and some deeper production from David Porter down at the Malaco and Ardent Studios – which ensures that the deep soul component of the music still stays strong! The whole thing's unlike anything else we can think of – and is a definite bridge between 70s soul scenes at the time – echoes of folks like Al Green or Sam Dees, but a tighter approach at points too. Titles include "You, Trouble, & Me", "That's That", "The Key To My Life", and "Baby, Hold On To Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a tracklist sticker.)
