Womack & WomackLove Wars/Radio MUSC Man (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Elektra/Robinsongs (UK), 1983/1985. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99
A double dose of Womack & Womack – two Elektra albums back to back! Love Wars is a stone classic from Cecil and Linda Womack – and an album that may well have given the duo their biggest hit in the title track! Cecil is the brother of Bobby Womack – a former member of his Valentinos group too – and Linda is the daughter of Sam Cooke – so you can bet that both singers have plenty of chops to make the album come off right, even as they find a really special space of their own! At some level, the music echoes Bobby's blend of deeper soul vocals with warmer backings – but at others, the duo take off from an Ashford & Simpson mode to find their own sort of special way of coming together, with elements that are unabashedly crossover at times – and avoid lots of the too-familiar soul duo modes of the period. Titles include "Love Wars", "Express Myself", "Baby I'm Scared Of You", "TKO", "Good Times", and "APB". Radio MUSC Man is sweet electric funk from Womack and Womack – a set that's got the same sort of tight songwriting as their classic Love Wars set from the 80s, but a groove that's maybe even heavier on the beats and keyboards too! The style's still nice and warm, in all the right ways to work with the duo's vocals trading back to back – and in addition to Fender Rhodes from Linda, the album also features some nice worm from Bobby Lyle, Neal Larson, and Eddie Noble on the keys. Titles include "No Relief", "Maze", "Night Rider", "Strange & Funny", "Eyes", and "Radio MUSC Man". CD also features two bonus tracks – "Love Wars (inst dub)" and "Love Wars (ext voc)". CD

✨✧ Con Funk ShunCon Funk Shun/Secrets (plus bonus track) ... CD
Mercury/Robinsongs (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A super-funky set – two vintage albums from Con Funk Shun – back to back on a single CD! The self-titled Con Funk Shun album is quite different than their later, better known hits! The group sure knew how to slap that bass, even back on this first album for Mercury – but then again, they – along with other big Mercury groups like The Ohio Players – were pioneering the bass-heavy sound that would influence countless bands over the next decade in soul. This first album's actually one of the group's best, with some nice rough edges that we like even more than the smoother sound of later albums. And oddly, some of our favorite cuts are the mellower ones – like the smooth jazzy instrumental "Foley Park", which has a nice moogy solo in the middle. Other good mellow cuts include "Another World", which almost has a "Summer Madness" quality to it, plus "Forever Just Ain't Long Enough" and "Never Be The Same". Secrets is a great early album from Con Funk Shun – a mix of funkier tunes and some excellent smooth modern ones in step with the mellower work by Cameo or Maze – done with more soaringly emotional sounds that moves beyond their peers! A love for earlier 70s styles might be what pushes Secrets above and beyond – honest, intimate, and at times just more focused in the vocals department than both the funky soul groups of the time and the quiet storm singers of the approaching early 80s – and still doesn't spare the bass, horns and funky interplay! High points include the closing instrumental "Indian Summer Love" and funky centerpiece "Ffun" –plus "Doowhachawannadoo", "Who Has The Time", "Secrets", "Tear In My Eye" and "I'll Set You Out OK". CD also features a bonus track – "Ffun (12" version)" – a clubby killer! CD

ParliamentFunkentelechy Vs The Placebo Syndrome ... LP
Casablanca, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Ahhhhh . . . By this point, George Clinton and the P-Funk team were on top of the world! The record is a masterful dose of slick mothership jamming – perfectly woven together with that tightly compressed style that really served Clinton's production work well. The tracks are long, but never too loopy – and thanks to help from the Bernie Worrell, Jerome Brailey, Gary Shider, and the Horny Horns, the album stays very tight instrumentally all the way through! Loads of Parliament classics, including "Bop Gun", "Funkentelechy", "Sir Nose D'Voidoffunk", and the massive "Flash Light", which we've heard a million times, but which never ceases to amaze us!

✨✧ Sunday's ChildSunday's Child ... LP
Sunnyside/Reprise, 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
A pretty great trio of female vocalists – taking that 60s Motown sound into a deeper vein, like the work of the Sweet Inspirations for Atlantic during the same time. The album's got a nice rootsy sound – despite its LA roots – and the girls alternate between singing harmonies and taking solo leads from track to track. Titles in clude "Feelin Good", "Maybe I'm Amazed", "Half & Half", "You're Good For Me", and "To Love Somebody". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has a radio station tracklist sticker, a name in marker, a sticker spot, and some ringwear.)

✨✧ Earth Wind & FireThat's The Way Of The World (expanded edition) ... CD
CBS, 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Amazing! Earth Wind & Fire's ultimate moment of the 70s – and a perfect blending of all their influences that stands as a lasting tribute to their super-huge effect on soul music! The record features all aspects of the band coming into perfect cohesion – bassy funk, mellow soul, and afrocentric jazz – all expertly handled by the great Charles Stepney, who still has the same rich talent for blending styles that he had while working at Chess/Cadet during the glory days of the late 60s. Some of these songs have been played to death (and covered so much) over the years that it's often easy to forget what a crowning moment this was for former underground soul heroes Earth Wind & Fire – but we'll never cease to be amazed at the power of their mid 70s work, and this album's the best of the best. Titles include "Shining Star", "That's The Way Of The World", "Reasons", "Africano", "See The Light", and "Happy Feelin". CD also features 5 bonus tracks – "Shining Star (future star)", "All About Love (first impressions)", "Happy Feelin (anatomy of a groove)", "Caribou Chaser (jazzy jam)", and "That's The Way Of The World (Latin expedition)".
