TempreesLove Maze ... LP LP format
We Produce, 1973. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Heavenly heavenly vocal group soul! Although recorded in Memphis for the Stax subsidiary of We Produce, the sound of the record is much more in keeping with some of the best of the New Jersey group soul records from the time – fragile at times, with a sweetness that's quite different than the bolder sound of early 70s Stax! The vocals are very raw, but woven together perfectly – into a soaring sound that will reach up and rip your still-beating heart right out of your chest! Tracks include "Love's Maze", "Wrap Me In Love", "Trust In Me", "At Last", "You Make The Sunshine", and their great cover of "People Make The World Go Round", which is stone cold one of the best Stax tracks from the early 70s!

Con Funk ShunCon Funk Shun/Secrets (plus bonus track) ... CD CD format
Mercury/Robinsongs (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy ... $13.99
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

SwitchReaching For Tomorrow ... CD CD format
Gordy (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
A stone classic from Switch – one of Motown's leading hopes in the early 80s soul scene, and for good reason too! These guys have a wonderfully well-rounded approach – great on ballads and even more compelling on groovers – a balance here that puts them proudly in the company of contemporaries like Maze or Slave, with a sound that's sometimes right in the middle of both. We love the mellow cuts especially, as they really give the group a chance to show off their vocal chops – and singers include both Bobby and Tommy DeBarge. Titles include "Keep Movin On", "Get Back With You", "Don't Take My Love Away", "I Finally Found Someone New", and "My Friend In the Sky". CD

New TempreesBest Of The Temprees ... CD CD format
We Produce/Stax, 1981. Used ... $7.99
Nice compilation of the Temprees' great vocal group sides cut for the Stax/We Produce label in the early 70's. If you don't know this stuff, their harmonies are great, and they deliver up a soulful batch of tracks that sound more like they would have come from the great east coast group recordings in Philly and New Jersey from the time, than they would have come from Memphis. 12 tracks in all "Love...Can Be So Wonderful", "I'm For You, You For Me", "Explain It To Her Mama", "Love's Maze", "Dedicated To The One I Love", "My Baby Love", "A Thousand Miles Away", "You Make The Sun Shine", "At Last", "Come And Get Your Love", "I Love, I Love" and "(Girl) I Love You".

New Chapter 8Chapter 8 ... LP LP format
Ariola, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first album from Chapter 8 – a set that's probably best remembered for introducing the world to Anita Baker, but one that's also pretty darn great on its own! Chapter 8 have a sharply soulful focus, one that takes them a bit above some of the other mainstream ensembles of the time – a balance of grooving rhythms and deeper feelings that's just about perfect – about at the level you might get from Maze or LTD, two other groups who both sported equally soulful lead singers! Gerald Lyles sings the male parts alongside Anita, and the blend is perfect – one that should have made the record even bigger than it was at the time, but maybe all that much better, since the lack of hit quality really keeps things fresh. Titles include the singles "Ready For Your Love" and "I Just Wanna Be Your Girl", plus "Don't You Like It", "Let's Get Together", "Come & Boogie", "I Go Disco", and "We Need Love".

New ParliamentFunkentelechy Vs The Placebo Syndrome ... LP LP format
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!

New Earth Wind & FireThat's The Way Of The World ... LP LP format
CBS, 1975. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily 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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some surface wear and some light stains.)

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
