✨✧ SouliveNo Place Like Soul ... CD
Stax, 2007. Used ... $2.99
A bit of a shift for Soulive – a record that has a lot more of a soul-based feel than before – thanks to the addition of vocalist Toussaint to the usual jamming trio! The grooves here are still as hard and funky on the bottom as ever, but they've got a bit more vocal focus too – set up to deliver a nice punch to Toussain't raspy, classic-styled singing – all very much in hopes of reviving the older spirit of Stax Records, given that the album's the group's debut for the label! There's a slightly more contemporary feel here than we might ascribe to Stax back in the 60s or 70s – but the album's not a bad one, either – and the addition of a vocalist may just be what Soulive need to help them keep on grooving freshly into their second decade of music. Titles include "Waterfall", "Mary", "Comfort", "Callin", "Outrage", "Morning Light", "Don't Tell Me", "If This World Was A Song", and "One Of Those Days". (Deep Funk, Neo Soul) CD

✨✧ Beverley KnightSoulsville ... CD
Warner (UK), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the deepest records we've ever heard from UK soul singer Beverly Knight – a set that was recorded in Royal Studios in Memphis, with a much more down-home vibe than any of her other music! Knight's always had a fantastic vocal approach – but here, she maybe gets the setting she's always deserved – a very old school mode that's bubbling over with the kind of Hammond, guitar, and horns you'd expect from a vintage album on labels like Stax or Hi Records! The shift opens up Beverly like never before – and she's right at home on tracks that include "I Can't Stand The Rain", "Middle Of Love", "When I See You Again", "Red Flag", "All Things Much Change", "Sitting On The Edge", "Still Here", and "I Won't Be Looking Back". Also includes duets – with Sam Moore on "Hold On I'm Coming", and Jamie Cullum on "Private Number". CD
