VariousAfrican Spirits – A Spiritual Jazz Journey Looking Back To Africa ... CD
Soul Brother (UK), 1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy ... $11.99
Afro-centric jazz from the 70s through the 90s – a real spiritual journey in music, compiled from a host of hard to find records, most of which are long out of print! The music on the collection is from three different decades, but the set's got a wonderfully unified feel – thanks to a strong spiritual current that runs through all the tunes, and a linked heritage of performance that was shared by many of the players over the years. Tracks are from a very diverse set of sources – including many American and European indie labels of the 60s and 70s – and all tunes are long, soulful, and plenty darn righteous! Titles include "Song For Mozambique" by Archie Shepp, "Africa" by Sathima B Benjamin, "The Almoravid" by Joe Chambers, "Our Roots Began In Africa" by Pharoah Sanders, "Days Gone By" by Moe Koffman, "Children" by Nation/African Liberation Arts Ensemble, "Mrafu" by Nate Morgan, "Afro Blue" by J Life, "Desert Fairy Princess" by Adele Sebastian, and "Banks Of The Nile" by Carlos Garnett.

VariousFallin Off The Reel Vol 4 ... CD
Truth & Soul, 2000s. New Copy ... $13.99
Music so great, it's falling off the reels – spinning out of the archives of the Truth & Soul label as they continue to put out some of the freshest funky work around! These guys have their roots way back in the deep funk underground, and they approach the music with a level of maturity that other labels can't even touch – always willing to try new things, expand their sound, and find ways of making the old resonate with the new – but all without any simple tricks or easy gimmicks! The work here is a real testament to the lasting strength of Truth & Soul – and really shows why we continue to love them so much – and the package features long-gone singles, rare mixes, and other unusual tracks – with a set list that includes "You're The Kind Of Girl" by Lee Fields & The Expressions, "The Rain Song" by The Olympians, "Pimp" by Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band, "One Hundred Years From Now" by Quenstine Strong, "I'll Be Home Soon" by Beau Williams, "Nightbird" by The Fabulous Three, "Blackout" by The Original Brothers, "Please Love Me" by Liam Bailey, "Money" by lady, "Girl From The Mountain" by The Ghetto Brothers, "Blind Love" by El Michels Affair, "Get Ready (Ticklah rmx inst)" by Lady, "Sunday Kind Of Love" by JD & The Evil's Dynamite Band, "Faithful Man (bare bones version)" by Lee Fields, "Laventille Road March" by Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band, "All Of Your Life" by Shirley Nanette, and "King Masuru" by Zafari. 22 tracks in all!

✨✧ VariousFree Soul – 21st Century Standard ... CD
Universal (Japan), 2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy ... $21.99
A great entry into the 21st Century side of the Free Soul series – a cool collection that moves up from the underground territory of other volumes that focus on recent work – to select some key cuts that have become real standards for soul music in the millenium! These aren't big hits – although the artists are well-known – but key cuts by each singer that have gone onto really have some weight in recent years, and which really help define the growth in soul music in the past decade or so! Titles include "Rocksteady" by Remy Shand, "J Dillalude" by Robert Glasper, "Feel Like Makin Love" by D'Angelo, "Open" by Rhye, "Open Your Eyes" by Platinum Pied Pipers with Dwele, "Poetry" by RH Factor with Q-Tip & Erykah Badu, "Soul Sista" by Bilal with Raphael Saadiq, "The Light" by Common, "Private Party" by India.Arie, "Beautiful Love" by Myron, and "Limit To Your Love" by James Blake.

✨✧ VariousMovements Vol 7 – Compiled By Tobias Kirmayer ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99
Maybe the coolest collection so far in this all-great series – a package that really has the Movements set expanding its vibe – to include some jazzier and more R&B-based titles as well – a perfect mix for their long-running love of funk and soul! The collection's got a gritty sound right from the start – a reach that goes back to the earliest days of soul to find some skittish nuggets that are great groovers – and a run up to the 70s to pull together some hip modal jazz tracks that provide a wonderful sense of contrast – sounds that are all groovy, all soulful, but span a rich world of styles and scenes! There's loads of gems here we'd never heard before at all – and titles include "California Dreaming" by Nu Art Quartet, "Sugar" by Howard B Smith, "Woke Up This Morning" by Rene Baily, "Unchain My Heart" by Johnny B & The Music Makers, "Nitty Gritty Humbug" by Steve Mason Trio, "He's A Real Gone Guy" by Dorothy Ramsey, "Out Of This World" by George Smith, "How Can You Be So Cold" by Lee Mitchell, "Dasheka" by Bob Hines Trio, "The Deep End" by Ray Johnson, and "The Purple Jellybean" by Johnny Walker Trio.

✨✧ VariousBrunswick Lost Soul Vol 2 ... CD
Brunswick, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A funk and soul treasure trove – wicked rare work from the legendary Brunswick label – most of it only issued on 45s back in the 60s and early 70s, and not reissued on CD! The package is a stunner – a real surprise that shows us there's plenty to dig for at Brunswick when you get past the hits – some wonderful Windy City soul from the late 60s, and gritty New York cuts that balance things out nicely too – and which definitely show a harder-edged side of Brunswick than you'd guess from the label's better-known tracks. There's some great obscurities here – the kind of cuts that we'd normally only find on rare 45s – like "It's Gonna Be Good" by Johnny Jones & The King Casuals, "Baby It's Time" by Marshall & The Chi-Lites, "Just A Little Misunderstanding" by Johnny Williams, "You Are" by Bobby Reed, "I Want Something To Remember You By" by Marvin Smith, "How Can You Say Goodbye" by Sidney Joe Qualls, "Once You Fall In Love" by Eddie McLoyd, "Karate Boogaloo" by The Emperors, and "Talk A Little Louder" by Wales Wallace – plus rare Brunswick material by folks you'd normally associate with other labels – like "Sweet Temptation" by Isaac Hayes, "Easy Evil" by Walter Jackson, "Since You've Been Gone" by Major Lance, and "Try Some Of Mine" by Little Richard.

✨✧ VariousBrunswick Singles Collection – Sisters Of Soul ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $21.99
Sublime female soul from one of the hippest labels we can think of – a company who was always taking a chance, always trying something new, and always willing to give exposure to some great new artists! This cool collection is definitely the best side of Brunswick Records on the Chicago scene – as it features a few better-known singers, mixed with lots more artists who never issued a full album for the label – but who cut some wonderful singles that are even better than some of the imprint's bigger hits! There's a stunning array of greatness here – from sweet soul numbers that lope along in a warm groove, to badass tracks that have a funkier vibe – all handled by the usual top-shelf talents that made bigger Brunswick artists so strong. Titles include "My Baby's Gone Away" by Shirley Karol, "Walk On My Side" by Jackie Ross, "Caution" by September, "Love Is" by The Promises, "Where Do You Go" by Lyn Roman, "Raining Teardrops" by The Demures, "It Hurts To See You Happy" by Sylvia St Claire, "What Kind Of Girl" by Demetriss Trapp, "What Did I Do" by The Sweethearts, "Memories & A Broken Heart" by Linda Hopkins, "The One Who Really Loves You" by Sugar Pie De Santo, "Love Had To Be You" by Jean Shy, "That's What You Are To Me" by Tracie Robbins, "The 3rd Movement" by Sunni Nash, and "Higher & Higher" by Erma Franklin.

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99
Way more than just another collection of 70s disco – as the folks at Soul Jazz have really gone all-out for this one, and turned up a range of tremendous cuts from the underground! None of these tracks were disco hits at the time, and instead they're the sort of numbers that only bubbled far away from the mainstream – the kind of hip, inventive club tracks that have only gotten global recognition all these many decades later – as DJs and collectors brought them back to light! And speaking of collectors, the legendary Disco Patrick put the whole thing together – in conjunction with his book for Soul Jazz too – and he's one cat who definitely knows his grooves. Titles on volume 1 include "Hooked On Your Love (John Morales mix)" by Fantastic Aleems featuring Calebur, "Superfunk" by Superfunk, "The River Drive" by Jupiter Beyond, "That's Hot" by Jessie G, "Easton Assassin" by The Sunburst Band, "Disco Madness" by Sparkle, "Dance To The Beat Freakout" by Wayne Ford, "Sweet Lady" by Chain Reaction, and "Trinidad (special disco mix)" by John Gibbs.

VariousEccentric Soul – The Capsoul Label ... LP
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $18.99 21.98
A treasure trove of funk and soul from one heck of a great little label – Columbus, Ohio's short-lived Capsoul imprint – only around for 5 years in the 70s, but home to a great flurry of indie singles! We first caught onto the label's brilliance with their funky classics "Hot Grits" by Elijah & The Ebonies and "Sock It To Em Soul Brother" by Bill Moss – but as this set wonderfully demonstrates, the label's got a heck of a lot more to offer – and all of it great! The label's brilliance has been masterfully unearthed by the crate-digging team at Numero Records – who've brought together 20 of the best Capsoul singles in a beautiful package that really tells the story of the tiny imprint, getting at the details and struggles that faced independent soul in the marketplace of the 70s. Way more than just a set of old singles, the set's a rich document of indie soul in one of the near-forgotten corners of the Midwest – filled with great tunes that may well have you booking the next flight you can find to Columbus! Titles include "Sock It To Em Soul Brother" by Bill Moss, "Pure Soul" by Elijah & The Ebonies, "Without Love" by Ronnie Taylor, "You're All I Need To Make It" by Johnson, Hawkins, Tatum, & Durr, "Hot Grits" by Elijah & The Ebonies, "Too Far Gone" by Four Mints, "I Want To Be Ready" by Kook Blues, "Go On Fool" by Marion Black, and "Number One" by Bill Moss. Updated version features new mastering and additional notes – plus the bonus track "All I Need To Make It" by The Capsoul Group. LP, Vinyl record album

Now Again, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy LP & Book ... $26.99 29.98
Mellow soul heaven – and one of the greatest compilations of this style we've ever heard! This is exactly the kind of laidback, tripped-out soul we totally love – a host of rare ballads and love songs pulled from the 45 underground of the late 60s and early 70s – sometimes by groups who are better known for funky tracks, other times by overlooked harmony groups and solo singers who rival the greatness of east coast artists like The Moments or Whatnauts! And while the music is totally great on its own – the sort we're usually content to have someone slip us on a dodgy CD – the whole package is even more incredible – a huge 80 page book that features loads of photos, record images, and notes on these obscure giants – really a Numero-level sort of presentation for these amazing tracks. Titles include "I Don't Think I'll Ever Love Another" by Darling Dears, "Slippin Around" by Thomas East, "Since You've Been Gone" by Little Janice, "Love" by Black Conspirators, "What Am I Waiting For" by Black Exotics, "Who Do You Think You're Fooling (part 1)" by Symphonic Four, "I'll Find A True Love" by Lee Bonds, "Young Girl" by Jazzie Cazzie & The Eight Sounds, and "Is It Me You Really Love" by Black Velvet.

VariousYAORcht Rock (deluxe edition) ... CD
Warner (Australia), 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $19.99
A smooth set of grooves from the 70s – just the kind of cool compressed pop that used to fill the 70s AM radio airwaves when we were kids – and which sounds even better in a hip compilation like this! The package doesn't go for easy hits – and instead digs deep into the treasure trove of 70s album-oriented rock – to find cuts that really glow anew in each others' company, filled with surprises that we never would have expected! Some folks have taken to calling these sounds "yacht rock" – but to us, the sound is pure 70s at its best – a sublime batch of tracks that includes "Georgy Porgy" by Toto, "Wait A Little While" by Kenny Loggins, "Here To Stay" by Boz Scaggs, "Fazon" by Sopwith Camel, "Whatcha Gonna Do For Me" by Average White Band, "Tranquilo" by Carly Simon, "Nightmoves" by Michael Franks, "Steal Away" by Robbie Dupree, "Tin Man" by America, "She's Gone" by Hall & Oates, "Midnight Prowl" by JD Souther, and "Ride Like The Wind" by Christopher Cross.

Bethlehem/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Mid 50s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A cool collection of classic work from the Bethlehem Records label – and one that's got a very different vibe than usual! The set's part of the excellent Cafe Apres Midi series from Japan – and like other volumes in the series, there's a special focus on groovier, more upbeat numbers from Bethlehem – with an especially strong emphasis on the kinds of vocal tracks that made the label great! There's less late night and blue numbers here than there are the kind of sprightly tracks that really stand out in the catalog – and the set's got a massive 28 tracks in all, with over 80 minutes of music – on titles that include "Night In Tunisia" by Frank Minion, "Mountain Greenery" by Paula Castle, "My Romance" by Joe Derise, "Blue Turning Grey Over You" by Audrey Morris, "The Way You Look Tonight" by Mel Torme, "That Old Black Magic" by Bobby Troup, "Lullaby Of Birdland" by Chris Connor, "Let's Fall In Love" by Teal Joy, "How About You" by Terry Morel, "Old Devil Moon" by Bob Dorough, "Gone With The Wind" by Donna Brooks, "All Of Me" by Johnny Hartman, and "This Can't Be Love" by Pat Moran.

Ministry Of Sound (UK), 1970s/1980s. Used 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massive mix of tunes from Jazzie B – a set that really goes back to the rare grooves of his roots! Long before the international stardom of Soul II Soul, Jazzie B was a key DJ in the London rare groove scene of the 80s – and for this massive 3 CD package, he's done a great job of recreating the sound from those bygone days – serving up key tracks from his years at the Africa Centre and before – starting with 70s funk and soul, moving into 80s groove, and picking up a bit of house and hip hop near the end! The 3CD, 39 track package is a delight throughout – a great reminder of the British love of soulful club in the 80s, and a wonderful way to hear the rhythmic roots that went into the later recordings of Soul II Soul. Titles include "Blow Your Head" by The JBs, "Strategy" by Archie Bell & The Drells, "You Stepped Into My Life" by Melba Moore, "I'll Be Your Pleasure" by Esther Williams, "Mr Magician" by Mystic Merlin, "Eyes On You" by Dayton, "I Love It" by Lillo Thomas, "Let's Get Together" by El Coco, "Good Loving Is Good Living" by Creative Source, "You Don't Know" by Serious Intention, "Salsa Boogie" by Nolen & Crossley, "Windy City Theme" by Windy City Orchestra, "Bump & Hustle Music" by Tommy Stewart, "I Know You Got Soul" by Eric B & Rakim, "Soul Man" by Sweet Charles, "Jack The Groove" by Raze, "Do What You Want" by 2 In A Room, "No Way Back" by Adonis, "Fairplay (Wookie mix)" by Soul II Soul, "Roots" by Copyright with Jazzie B, "Can You Feel It" by Mr Fingers, and "Children's Story" by Slick Rick.

DJ Spinna takes on the sound of Motown, with wonderful results – and a groove that's quite different than any other project we've heard from him! If you only know Spinna as a talent in a contemporary mode, you'll really be surprised at his love and understanding of classic Motown – as he mixes together 22 vintage tracks from the legendary soul label, all in a non-stop groove that features some great Spinna twists and turns as the music comes together! There's a few tracks that are all new Spinna edits of classics, and others have little touches here and there as they move on – a thoughtful way of mixing that really makes all the cuts resonate strongly together.

Possibly the best-ever collection of blacksploitation grooves we've ever seen – a really comprehensive package that not only manages to cover the classics, but which also digs deep enough to come up with lots of fresh bits too! The set really sets a new level for the Soul Jazz label – and is carried off with enough authority towards Black Action films as the label's legendary efforts towards a host of less mainstream genres – truly an achievement for the label's crew, not to mention a heavier bonus for our funky listening pleasure! There's way more here than just a slapped-together batch of tunes from the early 70s – as the set's very carefully put together to showcase a wide range of sounds, along with notes that really get at the social and political power of both the music and the films. 2CD package features a massive color booklet inside the slipcase – and features 34 tracks that include "Shaft In Africa" by Johnny Pate, "Down & Out In New York City" by James Brown, "Wilford's Gone" by The Blackbyrds, "Run Fay Run" by Isaac Hayes, "Theme From Black Belt Jones" by Dennis Coffey, "Willie Chase" by JJ Johnson, "T Plays It Cool" by Marvin Gaye, "Charley" by Don Costa, "Brother's Gonna Work It Out" by Willie Hutch, "Blacula" by Gene Page, "Theme From Cleopatra Jones" by Joe Simon, "Pursuit Of The Pimpmobile" by Isaac Hayes, "Sweetback's Theme" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Aragon" by Roy Ayers, "Strung Out" by Gordon Staples, "Easin In" by Edwin Starr, "The Bus" by Solomon Burke & Gene Page, "Make A Resolution" by The Impressions, "Ed & Digger" by Cotton Comes To Harlem, "Las Vegas Strut" by Jack Ashford, "Lay It On Your Head" by Don Julian, and "Zombie March" by Nat Dove & The Devils.

Harmless (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A heady host of disco tracks produced by Ian Levine – a longtime figure on the UK underground soul scene, and a surprisingly important force in club music for a few years too! Ian got his start on the Northern soul scene, but also had a great ear for larger, fuller arrangements – especially behind female singers – which made him a natural talent for the disco generation, when he really flourished strongly as a talent in the studio! This 2CD package features a big batch of work that all bears the Ian Levine imprint – mostly longer tracks with a soaring soulful vocal on top – including a few key cuts that bring older soul singers back to the limelight.

Weird tracks are mixed nicely with tuneful numbers – so that there's a really great sense of discovery as the set rolls on – a vibe that's as well-chosen as some of Ace Records' Halloween compilations, but in a sci fi sort of mode. Titles include "Armstrong" by John Stewart, "Destination Moon" by The Ames Brothers, "Lunar Rhapsody" by Les Baxter, "Happy Blues For John Glenn" by Lightnin Hopkins, "Theme From Star Trek" by Leonard Nimoy, "Everyone's Gone To The Moon" by Bobby Womack, "Doctor Who" by BBC Radiophonic Workshop, "Visa To The Stars" by Jean Jacques Perry & Gershon Kingsley, "Rocket To The Moon" by Moon Mullican, "Forbidden Planet" by David Rose, "Everybody Gets To Go To The Moon" by Themla Houston, and "Footprints On The Moon" by Johnny Harris.
