✨✧ Gil Scott-HeronSecrets (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Arista (Japan), 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 ... $11.99
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
