VariousNew Soul Heaven – A Collection Of Soul Delights ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2004. Used ... $9.99
New Soul, Nu Soul, or Neo Soul – it's all good to us – and this set goes a long way towards pulling together some of the best bits from the current soul underground of the past few years! The import package is a bit different than some of the American ones that have been floating around – as it features a nice blend of work that's only been issued on overseas labels – some of it by American artists that have yet to make a bigger splash over here, and some of it by overseas acts that sound equally nice in the smooth soul end of the spectrum! The CD's got 15 tracks in all – with titles that include "You Bring Joy" by Emerald Jade, "Journey" by Otis & Shugg, "Lifetime" by Khani Cole, "Can This Be Real" by Byron Woods, "You Gotta Go" by Mysti Day, "Cupid's Arrow" by Frank McComb, "Give It UP (rmx)" by Improm2 with Patrice Rushen, "Not Everyday" by Hofstone, "You Remind Me" by Ashley Taylor, "Make It Through The Night" by Alyson Williams, "Dream" by Carmen Rodgers, and "All You Need" by TC Carson.

Lizz WrightDreaming Wide Awake ... CD
Verve, 2005. Used ... $2.99
The second outing from vocalist Lizz Wright – done in the same sweetly folksy style as her debut, but in a way that seems to have even more of a focus overall. The backing on the set is especially nice – mostly just spare keyboards, bass, and drums, plus some great work on acoustic guitar by Chris Bruce – and titles include versions of "A Taste Of Honey", "Stop", "Old Man", "Wake Up Little Sparrow", and "I'm Confessin" – plus the originals "Hit The Ground", "Trouble", and "Dreaming Wide Awake".

✨✧ VariousNeo Blue-Eyed Soul – AOR Style ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The title more than gives this one away – and the album's a great exploration of that growing global underground who've turned back towards the 70s, to re-embrace and re-invent the smooth contemporary sound of the decade! You might know a few names on here from the Dusty Groove racks – like Ed Motta or Jarrod Lawson – but many artists are ones we've not heard before, and offer up a stunning selection of tracks that may well beat some of our LA studio gems from the big labels. The vocals are wonderfully soulful – more than you might even expect – and the production is sublime – not commercial, but a cool reworking of older crossover modes with a leaner 21st Century aesthetic! Titles include "I Recall" by Andre Solomko, "Red Casette" by Mama's Gun, "Someone" by Moonstones, "Leblon" by Adam Dunning, "He's There" by Jarrod Lawson, "Some Say" by We'll Make It Right, "The Masquerade Is Over" by Pieter De Graaf with Benny Sings, "Garota" by Erlend Oye, "Hangover" by Roos Jonker, "Smile" by Ed Motta, "Always On The Run" by Roman Andren, "Always Belong To You" by Michelle Sparrow, and "You're Out Of Business" by Smooth Reunion.
