MetersMessage From The Meters – Complete Josie, Reprise, & Warner Singles 1968 to 1977 (3LP black vinyl pressing) ... LP
Real Gone, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy (reissue)... On October 27, 2017
Heavy soul by one of the funkiest groups of all time – New Orleans mighty Meters, a group who forever set a new standard with the classic singles featured in this package! The Meters are an instrumental group at their core – with a moody blend of heady basslines, bubbling organ, and scratchy guitar – made famous by their early singles on the Josie label, then taken to new heights as they moved to Warner/Reprise in the 70s, and came up with some even more complicated grooves! And while the group's albums are all great, it's definitely their singles that put the money where their funk is – creating these cool, compact, mostly-instrumental modes that pack a hell of a lot of punch in just a short space. The collection features 40 of these massive numbers – titles that include "Joog", "Sassy Lady", "No More Okey", "Trick Bag", "Mister Moon", "Find Yourself", "Chug Chug Chug (parts 1 & 2)", "The Flower", "Smiling", "Do The Dirt", "Africa", "People Say", "Running Fast (long version)", "Disco Is The Thing Today", "Hey Pocky A Way", "Stretch Your Rubber Band", "This Is My Last Affair", "Chicken Strut", "Sophisticated Cissy", "Cissy Strut", "Here Comes The Meter Man", "Ease Back", "Ann", "Dry Spell", "Little Old Money Maker", "Hey Last Minute", and "The World Is A Little Bit Under The Weather Doodle Oop".

Arthur AlexanderArthur Alexander (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, 1972. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
A great little comeback album for southern soul godfather Arthur Alexander! It was recorded during a period when Warner Brothers was really committed to cutting heavy soul albums, with singers like Lorraine Ellison and Paul Kelly, and Alexander sounds great in this setting. The record's got some rootsy southern production by Tommy Cogbill – rootsier, in fact, than some of Arthur's earlier work, but Arthur reprises his famous "Rainbow Road", and other originals with a stronger emotional sensibility that works amazingly well – including "In the Middle of It All", and "Go On Home Girl", plus other cuts by Donnie Fritts, Dennis Linde, and Dan Penn. Some great bonus tracks on this CD version from Omnivore, too – including the never before released "I Don't Want Nobody" and "Simple Song Of Love", plus "Mr John", "You Got Me Knockin'", "Lover Please" and "They'll Do It Every Time".

ApolloniaApollonia (deluxe edition) ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1988. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 18.99
Solo work from Apollonia – working here past her time with both Apollonia 6 and her association with Prince – but still showing an equally strong talent for catchy 80s pop! The music is handled by a host of producers, and most numbers are in a beat-heavy mode that follows on her previous material – funky, but not always in a Prince-ish way – but always tuneful and heavy on the hooks! Titles include "Help Wanted", "Mismatch", "Sychronize", "The Same Dream", "Since I Fell For You", "You Can't Win", and "Your Eyes". This 2CD version features lots of bonus tracks – 14 more selections that include a big number of remixes of the tracks "Mismatch", "The same Dream", and "Since I Fell For You". CD

Ashford & SimpsonSo So Satisfied (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $5.99
Sublimely satisfying work from Ashford & Simpson – a stone killer from the height of their late 70s glory days on Warner Brothers! The pair are working together wonderfully at this point – wrapped up in that blend of upbeat soul and righteous undercurrents that made them a real cut above in mainstream soul – getting great help from arrangers William Eaton, Paul Riser, and Al Gorgoni – all of whom know how to hit that perfect Ashford & Simpson balance between tightness, class, and soulful spontaneity! Backings are always filled with lots of jazzy touches, too – the kind of sophisticated soul elements other would cop from the pair in years to come – and titles include "Over & Over", "It's You", "If You're Lying", "Couldn't Get Enough", "Destiny", "So So Satisfied", and "Tried Tested & Found True". CD features bonus tracks – "Over & Over (12" disco mix)", "Over & Over (single mix)", "Tried Tested & Found True (single mix)", "So So Satisfied (single mix)", and "Tried Tested & True (Mike Maurro unreleased mix)".

Brian Auger & Julie TippettsEncore ... LP
Warner, 1978. Near Mint- ... $4.99
An overdue reunion for Brian Auger and Julie Driscoll (now billed as Tippetts) – and a late 70s session that sounds quite a bit different than their mod soul of the 60s! The format here is still somewhat in a soul-based vein – but the sound is much more 70s, and much more "adult" as well – sometimes smooth, sometimes mellow, with Julie singing in a way that's still heartfelt, but not with the clear nod to American soul of her earlier work. Brian's still playing plenty of keyboards, although not getting in as many licks as on his own albums of the decade – yet still with enough space to help transform some of the best tunes. Titles include "Git Up", "Freedom Highway", "Spirit", "Future Pilot", "Rope Ladder To The Moon", "No Time To Live", and "Nothing Will Be As It Was" – a great English remake of a song by Milton Nascimento!

Banda Black RioMaria Fumaca (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner/Polysom (Brazil), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
An excellent album by one of the greatest Brazilian funk bands ever – a wonderful blend of funk, jazz, and soul – and a set that rivals any of the best work coming from the US at the time! These guys are right on the money right from the start – moving through sharp changes with effortless ease, yet never in a way that's too slick or commercial – kind of like that perfect balance that Kool & The Gang hit for just a few records in the mid 70s – but with more of a Brazilian feel overall. Jazzy licks abound – and the keyboards, guitar, and horns are just great – but the set's also got some more regional percussion, too – which really rounds out the record wonderfully. The grooves all have a really universal appeal – essential for any fan of funky sounds – and titles include "Mr Funky Samba", "Junia", "Casa Forte", "Na Baixa Do Sapateiro", "Lelbon Via Vaz Lobo", "Baia", "Maria Fumaca", and "Metalurgia".

✨✧ George BensonBreezin ... LP
Warner, 1976. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A super huge hit for George – the record that took him from being a funky jazz guitarist into an R&B superstar! The album features George playing and singing over arrangements by Claus Ogerman – some of Ogerman's best of the 70s, ones that mix together his trademark pillow of sound with a slightly funky bounce. The result is incredible – and the album is filled with loads of great songs – including George's excellent version of Bobby Womack's "Breezin", the hit version of "This Masquerade", and the cuts "So This Is Love", "Six To Four", and "Affirmation".

George BensonIn Your Eyes ... CD
Warner, 1983. Used ... $5.99
Sweetly jazzy soul from George Benson – a key classic from his great run at Warner Brothers Records, and the kind of record that George did better than anyone else at the time! Back in the 60s, we'd never have guessed that Benson's sweetly crackling vocals would dominate popular jazz more than his great guitar work – but hearing George here, it's clear that his soul work could easily outshine his guitar, especially when set up in a package like this! Atlantic soul maestro Arif Mardin produced, and as with his Chaka Khan productions for Warner at the time, he gives Benson a clean, clear modern style that's certainly pop, but also a lot less cluttered and clunky than modes used with other artists at the time. George is mostly on the vocal tip for the set, and Kashif helps out on one track – no surprise, given that Kashif was soon to walk down the path that Benson had started with his first few vocal albums in the 70s. Titles include "Love Will Come Again", "Use Me", "Late At Night", "In Search Of A Dream", "Lady Love Me", "In Your Eyes", and "Never Too Far To Fall". (Jazz, Soul) CD

George BensonWhile The City Sleeps ... LP
Warner, 1986. Near Mint- ... $1.99
This one's far more of a straight soul album than most of George Benson's earlier vocal sets – but as usual, the work is pretty high caliber throughout – and George is definitely on top of his game here, effortlessly beating others at the style they'd all started to cop from Benson by the time! Production is mostly by Narada Michael Walden, with that mix of warmth and depth that graced most of his soul sides from the time – but other tracks also get production from Kashif and Tommy LiPuma, who definitely up the pop quotient on the set. Titles include "Teaser", "Shiver", "While The City Sleeps", "Kisses In The Moonlight", "Too Many Times", and "Did You Hear Thunder". (Jazz, Soul) LP, Vinyl record album

Bootsy's Rubber BandStretchin' Out In Bootsy's Rubber Band (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner/Rhino, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Bootsy Collins' first solo album as a leader – and a masterpiece of slow bassy funk that set the tone for countless other groups to come! Bootsy steps into the spotlight with a tremendous amount of confidence and personality on the record – emerging as the one real star that could shine brightly on its own in the P-Funk galaxy – oozing personality, sexuality, and super-funky grooves throughout! George Clinton's helping Bootsy out on production a bit, and the rest of the P-Funk regulars are in the group as well – but the album's clearly Bootsy's own, and takes mainstream funk into a whole new sound – one that would really set a high bar for much of the west coast scene in years to come! Includes the massive "I'd Rather Be With You" – plus "Physical Love", "Love Vibes", and "Psychoticbumpschool". LP, Vinyl record album

CarmelDrum Is Everything ... LP
Warner, 1984. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Overlooked grooviness from the UK scene of the early 80s – and the best album ever from this jazzy pop combo! Carmel existed in the post-punk scene that saw a number of UK groups exploring the jazzier side of the spectrum – using a range of acoustic instruments with a fresher, younger flair that pushes the music way past its jazz roots. The album's got a heavily percussive sound that's really great – often building simple driving rhythms out of acoustic bass and drums – then topping them off by lead vocals from singer Carmel McCort. Titles include the groovers "Drum Is Everything" and "I Thought I Was Going Mad" – plus "The Prayer", "Rockin On Suicide", "More More More", "Rue St Denis", and "Bad Day".

Clarence CarterThis Is Clarence Carter ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1968. Used ... $6.99
A seminal debut from the great Clarence Carter – proof that there was still a lot of genius to be heard in southern soul at the time! The 60s were just about over when Clarence appeared on the recording scene – and it seemed that most of the big names in soul had already grabbed most of the thrones in the kingdom. Clarence was a real comer, though – and his sweet style of southern soul was immediately popular, filling a void promptly after the death of Otis Redding, and setting a bit more fire than some of the other Atlantic male singers, who were waning a bit at the time. Of course, it certainly helps that that lil' ol' genius Rick Hall was behind Clarence's move – arranging and producing this album with some of the strongest, least cliched Muscle Shoals backings of the time. Titles include "Slip Away", "Funky Fever", "Thread The Needle", "Do What You Gotta Do", "Looking For A Fox", and "Slippin' Around". CD

Cold BloodLydia ... LP
Warner, 1974. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of the tightest albums ever cut by this San Francisco funk combo – one titled after their lead singer Lydia Pense, who'd become a much better vocalist by this point than she was on earlier efforts. The album's strongest point, though, is still the instrumentation – which is arranged and produced here by Steve Cropper with sort of a 70s Memphis groove, one that brings out the sharpest edges of the guitar and organ riffing. Titles include "Under Pressure", "Consideration", "Just Like Sunshine", "Ready To Live", "Simple Love Life", and "When My Love Hand Comes Down". LP, Vinyl record album

Bootsy CollinsBootsy? Player Of The Year ... LP
Warner, 1978. Very Good Gatefold ... $7.99
What can we say? Bootsy's on top of the world here – not only The Player Of The Year, but also the most soulful artist in the P-Funk stable, and a master of the smooth, sly, slinky groove that would forever be taken up by bands from LA – both in the immediate soul years and in later sampling hip hop ones. The record's got a sophisticated soul approach that moves the music way past slapped basslines and funny glasses – and thanks to top-line musicianship, including some help from Fred Wesley, Bootsy avoids any cliches that might have buried this one under the mountain of P-Funk albums hitting the market at the same time. Includes the monster track "Hollywood Squares" – plus "May The Force Be With You", "Very Yes", "Bootsy?", and "Bootzilla". LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, 1986. Very Good ... $0.99
Randy Crawford's working here with arrangements and production from Reggie Lucas – all very much in that sweet 80s style he was bringing to work with other artists at the time! There's plenty of beats, guitars, and keyboards in the instrumentation – pushing an overall sound that's more electric than some of Randy's jazzier sides from the early days. But Ms Crawford's vocals come out strongly on top of it all – with a poised presence that's clearly the main focus of the set. Lucas plays guitar, and also wrote a few of the tracks – and titles include "Can't Stand The Pain", "Actual Emotional Love", "World Of Fools", "Betcha", "Desire", "Getting Away With Murder", and "Almaz".
