VariousInterpretations – Celebrating The Music Of Earth Wind & Fire ... CD
Stax, 2007. Used ... $8.99
A surprisingly wonderful tribute to the genius of Earth Wind & Fire – new versions of some of the group's best songs from the 70s, all put together in a set that was supervised by Maurice White himself! The package is hardly the scatter-shot affair that other tribute albums tend to be – and instead, there's a nicely unified sound that really revives the most soulful aspects of Earth Wind & Fire's music, but points it strongly towards a new generation in the 21st Century! The artists really preserve the warmth that made the original work so great – and although some of the styles are relatively modern, they've got plenty of classic undertones too. Titles include "Love's Holiday" by Lalah Hathaway, "That's The Way Of The World" by Dwele, "Reasons" by Musiq Soulchild, "Devotion" by Ledisi, "Can't Hide Love" by The Randy Watson Experience with Bilal, "Fantasy" by Meshell Ndegocello, "September" by Kirk Franklin, "Be Ever Wonderful" by Angie Stone, and "Shining Star" by Chaka Khan.

✨✧ Angie StoneUnexpected ... CD
Stax, 2009. Used ... Out Of Stock
Angie Stone's second album for Stax – and some of her most insistently catchy songs ever – with a sound that bridges a deeply melodic, modern-to-future soul vibe to the grounded, self determined and emotional neo classic groove that she's built her solo repution on! If you've been following Angie's career from her pioneering female rap crew Sequence to the late aughties, you know that she has a voice that has brought depth and soul to a number of styles, not just the natural soul sound she's arguably most famous for, so really the one thing we can expect from her, thankfully, is excellent soul music of all stripes. Unexpected has productions that are for the most part ready for the dancefloor, but the songs are much deeper than just that – with Angie's voice exuding truth and soul throughout, with songs that find her confronting and slaying negativity while celebrating life and love. Titles include "Unexpected", "I Ain't Hearin You", "Free", "Maybe", "Hey, Mr DJ", "Kiss All Over Your Body", "Why Is It", "Think Sometimes" and "I Found A Keeper". CD
