Anthony DavidLocation Location Location ... CD
Rolling Mojo/E1, 2011. Used ... $4.99
The second album from Anthony David in 2011 – and it's another really strong one! Location Location Location has a trio great new songs to start it out – somewhat gentle and soaringly soulful numbers that really do earn some of the comparisons David has gotten to Terry Callier. Acoustic guitar and light strings back his clear, soulful voice. Other tracks include some solid remixes and live versions of some the best of Anthony's recent recordings. Something of a companion to his Above So Below album – but it's one that stands out just as strongly on its own! Includes "Location Location Location", "Rollin Mojo", "The Further We Go" feat Giaovanca, "4Evermore (DJ Kemet Deep House Remix)", "Reach Ya (Masheen Remix)", "Let Me In (Live)", "Find Your Love (Live)", "Cold Turkey (Live)" and more.

✨✧ VariousWorld Soul Collective Vol 4 ... CD
Sweet Soul (Japan), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic entry in this ultra-cool series – one that digs through the farther reaches of the global soul underground – to come up with the kinds of tracks that would take you a month of online surfing to find! You'll recognize some of the artists here from full length titles that have circulated over the years, but there's also a number of new names here too – creating a blend of wonderfully contemporary cuts with a rock-solid approach to soul music! Titles include "See You When I Get There" by Avery Sunshine, "Sit Back" by Orly, "Rebirth" by Loretta, "Clear My Name" by Debra Debs, "By Your Side" by Mad Satta, "Blank Page" by Joyce-Lou & JDMC, "Crazy" by Mary Davis Jr, "Joy" by Nao Yoshioka, "Feel Free" by Brandon Williams with Frank McComb, "Hold On" by Raquel Rodriguez, "Work For It" by Shirma Rouse, and "Next To Me" by Rebekka Ling.

Beady BelleOn My Own ... LP
Jazzland (Norway), 2016. New Copy 2LP ... $11.99
Beady Belle's not really on her own here – just working away from her regular group, with an all-star batch of musicians that includes Bugge Wesseltoft on piano and Fender Rhodes, and the mighty Joshua Redman on tenor sax! The album's got even more of a jazz core than some of the other Beady Belle albums of the past decade or so – thanks especially to some strong rhythmic lines propelled by the drums of Gregory Hutchinson and bass of Reuben Rogers, who work really well with Bugge's always-great keyboard lines – especially that strong sense of soul that he's developed in his acoustic playing in recent years. The set was recorded both in Oslo and New York – maybe making the record one of Beady's most international in approach, and maybe appeal as well – which (we hope!) will finally give this amazing Scandinavian soul singer the American fame she deserves. Titles include "Traffic In Mumbai", "Castle", "On My Own", "Bury", "Almost", "Marbles", "Lost Face", "Dear Hope", and "The Clouds". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia NightsIn All Things ... CD
Record Breakin, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99
We waited years for the full length debut of Columbia Nights, and not only was it worth the wait, it's a stunner – a beautiful batch of timeless spacey soul! Essentially the multi-instrumentalist trio of John E Daise, Jason "Brotherspanky" Edwards and Hayling Price, they have really expansive sound – built from bass, synths, keys, percussion that lifts it to cosmic heights – in a perfect mix of atmospheric instrumentals and vocal-led tracks. The sound carries influences from soaring 70s soul jazz, to post millennium electronic soul – which mingle seamlessly, and carry a real depth of genuine soul, however spacey the composition! The guest vocalists are top notch, including Diggs Duke, Aaron "AB" Abernathy, Vaughan Octavia and others, and titles include "Sphere", "Cerulean", "In All Things", "Circle", "Now" with Diggs Duke, "The Rhythm" with Sarai Abdul-Malik, "Coming Home" with Aaron "AB" Abernathy, "Neverend/All For You" feat Siara Shawn, "Ever Between" with B Jamelle and "Glide" with Vaughan Octavia.

Dudley PerkinsExpressions ... LP
Stones Throw, 2006. Near Mint- 2LP ... $16.99
Another great little left coast leftfield nusoul effort from Dudley Declaime Perkins, who we like to think of as the ODB of neo classic soul. Just as you might hope, Dudley leans a little more heavily on a healthy dose of rhyme vocalese rather than smooth crooning on this crispy little album that rides a fine line between raw, gritty soul and hazy late, late, late night numbers from producer Madlib. 13 numbers in all, including "Funky Dudley", "The Last Stand", "Dear God", "Come Here My Dear", "Testin' Me", "Get On Up", "Dolla Bill", "That's The Way It's Gonna Be" and "Separate Ways".

DweleW.ants W.orld W.omen (W.W.W.) ... CD
E1, 2010. Used ... $7.99
Dwele returns with a thematically ambitious effort – a 3 section album divided into W.ants, W.orld and W.omen – and it pays off very well and actually works as cohesively as anything he's done to date! Wisely, Dwele doesn't veer to hard stylistically from one section to the next, a solid modern hip hop soul sound on the production tip, and we're not hearing any short sighted bows to current trends or throwback soul. It's honest and real, just as we'd hope from one of Detroits brightest graduates of the neo soul scene – with guests David Banner, Slum Village, Raheem Devaughn & others. Titles include "Wants (Intro)", "I Wish", "Grown", "Dodgin Your Phone" feat David Banner, "Dim The Lights" & Smoke Up The Back (Interlude)" feat Raheem DeVaughn, "World (Intro)", "How I Deal" feat Slum Village, "My People", "Women (Intro)" feat Kindra Parker, "I Understand", "Love You Right", "I Wanna" feat DJ Quik, "What's Not To Love" and more.
