Carleen AndersonUp To Now – The Best Of Carleen Anderson ... CD
Virgin (UK), 1990s/Early 2000s. Used ... $12.99
An incredible collection of work by Brit soul legend Carleen Anderson – born of American parents (and James Brown bandmates) Bobby Byrd and Vicki Anderson, but a key figure in the London soul revival of the 1990s and beyond! The set brings together work from a wide array of sources – not just Carleen's initial solo records for Virgin, but also her more recent indie soul efforts, a few rare singles, and work with groups that include Young Disciples, Brand New Heavies, and Full Flava! Carleen's got an incredible voice that's easily one of the best bits of UK soul in the past 25 years – and the set list really features some of her best work ever, all tied up in one tidy package! Titles include "Apparently Nothin (Circa mix)", "Nervous Breakdown (radio)", "True Spirit", "Sights In The City (with Guru)", "Fortune's Drive (edit)", "Maybe I'm Amazed", "Let It Last", "Mama Said", "Leopards In The Temple", "Swinging Big Tom" and "Saturday Nite" (both with Brand New Heavies), "Stories" (with Full Flava)", "Dance In The Rain", and "Don't Look Back In Anger (live)".

Brand New HeaviesAll About The Funk ... CD
Shanachie, 2004. New Copy ... $11.99 18.98
The Brand New Heavies back on top in the early 00s – coming across with a batch of funky soul tracks that should cross over large! The sound here is much tighter and hook-heavy than on their recent Japanese release – more in the vein of the chart-crossing funk the group were cooking up at the end of their early 90s run – a blend of 70s soul influences, stripped-down production, and enough modern R&B twists to carry their work quite far from their London roots. There's a heck of a lot of guitar on the set – fuzzed-up but compressed nicely, underneath vocals from new singer Nicole Russo. Titles include "Boogie", "Waste My Time", "Need Some More", "Surrender", "How Do You Think", "How We Do This", and "I Feel Right". CD

EstelleAll Of Me ... CD
Atlantic, 2012. Used ... $2.99
The beats bounce right from the start – and really get things going for this cooker of an album by Estelle – funky, soulful, and plenty darn joyous all the way through! Some tunes are heavy on electronics, others are more laidback and straightly soulful – and on these numbers, Estelle really shines brightly – showing a vocal strength that's almost surprising in the context of some of the more heavily-produced numbers – and really balancing out the album nicely! Titles include "Cold Crush", "Break My Heart", "Thank You", "Wonderful Life", "Back To Love", "International (Serious)", "The Life", "Speak Ya Mind", and "Do My Thing". CD
