Obscure material by Bobby Stevens & The Checkmates – recorded after their baroque soul album for A&M, with arrangements by Bobby and the band.

A&M, 1977. Used Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Cat Stevens' most soulful moment!

Billy StewartBilly Stewart Teaches Old Standards New Tricks ... LP
Chess, 1966. Very Good+ ... $4.99
This was the follow-up LP to Billy Stewart's huge single of Gershwin's "Summertime", and it's got a similar approach of "funky soul takes on American pop music standards".

Epic, 1975. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A nice little mid 70s set from Sly – one recorded without the Family Stone, but still grooving wonderfully with lots of funky edges!

Seems like The Stylistics were recording a new album every few months at this point – and thankfully, through all that work they still managed to come up with a few great numbers now and then!

Avco, 1974. Very Good ... $6.99
Mid-period Stylistics, recorded after their association with Thom Bell and Linda Creed, and during the time that the group was handled by Hugo & Luigi.

StylisticsSpecial Style ... LP
Streetwise, 1985. Very Good ... $6.99
A whole new sound for The Stylistics – one that has the group working here with Maurice Starr in a sweet 80s street soul style!

Bill SummersStraight To The Bank ... LP
Prestige, 1978. Sealed ... $4.99
Probably Bill Summers' best LP for Prestige, and certainly the one in which he got his groove straightened out, and more in the pocket than on some of his other ones. The title cut's a massive groover, and the LP version ends in a cool acappella sweep on the chorus that sounds (in our opinion) ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

MCA, 1983. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Bill Summers' London Style here is one that's definitely influenced by the changes on the dancefloor coming from the UK in the early 80s – and the groove is a slightly more electrified take on the rhythms that Bill was laying down on previous albums for MCA!

✨✧ SupremesBit Of Liverpool ... LP
Motown, 1964. Near Mint- ... $19.99
It's always interesting to note the way that Berry Gordy tried to move Motown out of the ghetto of US soul indies, by attempting various moves to realign the music with other spheres bigger than the scope of Detroit soul. Sometimes these moves were clear "loss leaders" that wouldn't ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
