Gil Scott-HeronSecrets ... CD
Arista/Soul Brother (UK), 1978. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A key crossover set from Gil Scott-Heron – still every bit as political as his earlier work, but with a stronger sense of soul as well! The great Brian Jackson is firmly in tow here – bringing warm keyboards and a nice little groove to most of the tracks – and the previous acoustic moments are replaced with more electric instrumentation overall, but never in a way that seeks to dampen Gil's message, nor push him into easy commercial territory. Instead, the tighter rhythms seem to really hammer home some of the lyrics – most famously in "Angel Dust", which almost touched a wider audience than the drug itself – and equally nicely on cuts that include "Cane", "Angola,Louisiana", "Show Bizness", "Better Days Ahead", and "Madison Avenue".

✨✧ Style CouncilOur Favourite Shop (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1985. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A blue-eyed soul classic from the UK scene of the 80s – probably the last truly great album from The Style Council, and a great blend of 60s influences with the post-Jam sound of Paul Weller. The album's got a bit more polish than before, but still none of the too-poppy modes that would mar the group at their end – and Weller's vocals are great, as always – with a sense of warmth we never would have expected in the early days of The Jam. The songwriting's great too, and Mick Talbot manages to give the record a jazzy enough sensibility to please our dusty-tuned ears. Titles include "Homebreakers", "All Gone Away", "Come To Milton Keynes", "Internationalists", "Boy Who Cried Wolf", "A Man Of Great Promise", and "Luck". CD
