Martha High with Osaka MonaurailTribute To My Soul Sisters ... LP
Record Kicks (Italy), 2017. New Copy ... $18.99
A hard-smoking set of female funk – with backing from the mighty Osaka Monaurail combo! Years ago, Martha High was something of a "lost" female soul figure – an artist who worked with James Brown in the 60s, recorded a bit of disco in the 70s, but never fully got her due. Yet in recent years, she's re-emerged with a bold new sound – maybe even funkier than back in the day, and working with some very cool contemporary combos – at a level that's maybe made her second just to Sharon Jones for hard-edged funky soul music! This time around, High returns to working with Japan's Osaka Monaurail – maybe one of our favorite funky groups of recent years, and an ensemble who are very committed to the sound of the James Brown band in the late 60s – which is a perfect fit for the songs that High's using here – which were originally recorded by Lyn Collins, Marva Whitney, Vicki Anderson, and Yvonne Fair. The whole thing's mighty smoking – and titles include "Unwind Yourself", "Mama's Got A Bag Of Her Own", "Mama Feelgood", "Answer To Mother Popcorn", "Put It On The Line", "Things Got To Get Better", "Think", and "A Little Tasted Of Soul". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Charles BradleyChanges (with download) ... LP
Dunham/Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Jaw-dropping work from Charles Bradley – a stunning album that's maybe his best so far – and that's saying a hell of a lot, given the quality of his previous work! There's a focus and power here that really puts Charles on top – from the bold statement at the start of the record, to the range of expressive, emotive lyrics all the way through – given superb support in a range of deep soul and funky currents from the likes of Budos Band, Menehan Street Band, Gospel Queens, Saun & Starr, and Sha La Das! Yet none of these guests ever feel like they're sharing the spotlight with Charles – because, like the James Brown Show of the late 60s, all these super-strong talents are working in constellation around Bradley's majesty – a bold soul vision that's never burned this brightly before. Titles include "Ain't It A Sin", "Nobody But You", "Good To Be Back Home", "Things We Do For Love", "Crazy Love", and "Slow Love" – plus a cover of Black Sabbath's "Changes". LP, Vinyl record album
