✨✧ Amy WinehouseLioness – Hidden Treasures (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Universal, 2011. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A (sadly) posthumous release from Amy Winehouse – a voice we loved for a couple good years before knowing how troubled she was in real life and now lament the loss of – and this set, largely put together by producer Salaam Remi turned out surprisingly well! It'd be pretty easy to bow to cynicism, but for our money, there's more than enough strong stuff here. It features production by Remi, plus Mark Ronson on a couple tracks, and it's a mix of styles that ably demonstrate Amy's depth as an interpreter. There's some great, kinda late night jazzy soul numbers, classic level 60s R&B and thoroughly modern hip hop soul – all with strong vocal performances from Amy. Includes "Our Day Will Come", "Between The Cheats", "Tears Dry (Original Version)", "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow (2011)", "Like Smoke" feat Nas (and some eerily timely lyricism, as of this album's release date), "Valerie ('68 Version)", "Half Time", "The Girl From Ipanema", "Half Time", "Body & Soul" with Tony Bennett, "A Song For You" and more.

✨✧ Eric RobersonEric Roberson Presents: The Vault Vol 1 ... CD
Eric Roberson, 2002. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Brilliant work from America's next great soul singer – the incredible Eric Roberson, one of the freshest male soul vocalists in years! At one level, Eric's work is steeped in the classic styles of Donnie Hathaway and Marvin Gaye – but at another, it's completely without cliche or stylistic precedent – as fresh as the best newer work by female singers like Jill Scott or Julie Dexter. Roberson's rhythmic conception is really tremendous – open, free, and presented in a way that pushes the vocals past obvious patterns that so often plague male soul singers. The set's got a really fresh approach that's also due in part to Roberson's use of a variety of producers – including Osunlade, Vidal Davis, Redhead Kingpin, and others. Jill Scott does guest vocals on the track "One Time", but it's Eric's genius that really brings the whole set home! Titles include "Rock With You", "Past Paradise", "She Couldn't Hear Me", "Rebound", "Rain On My Parade", and "When Love Calls" – and if you've been looking for a soul record to change your life, this is it!

✨✧ Personal LifeMorning Light ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first we've heard from this UK group – but given the strength of the record, we're betting we'll be digging them for many years to come! The album's a great no-nonsense contemporary soul affair – put together in a really old school sort of way that recalls the energy of Brand New Heavies or Incognito at their best – with a similar blend of funk and jazz alongside some positive, upbeat lyrics – and an overall groove that's definitely inspired by the best of the 70s soul generation! Male and female vocals mix together to give the record a nice full sound – and titles include "Rainy Day In London", "There's A Time For Everything", "Classic Lady", "Distance Can Be Sweet", "Give Into The Night", and "Morning Light".

Nicolas BeardeAll About Love ... CD
Right Groove Rekkids, 2004. Used ... $4.99
Smooth and lush soul from singer Nicolas Bearde – a great vocalist with a really classic approach! Nicolas has a sound that almost reminds us of some of the classic Norman Connors albums from the late 70s – soul, but with a jazz sensibility clearly working underneath. And although the arrangements are modern, they've got a warm feel that has plenty of classic overtones – putting Nicolas in sweetly soulful territory all the way through! Includes a very Connors-esque version of "Naima", plus "Trying Times", "Summer Sunday", "Be Mine", "Wild Is The Wind", "Promise Me", "One Look At You", and "Love Of My Life". CD

MaxwellNow ... CD
Columbia, 2001. Used ... $1.99
Maxwell's third album, and he just keeps getting better. His songwriting skills have become more finely honed, and the arrangements and general feel still maintain his warm, retro modern vibe. We never tire of his soulful vocals, and music that references classics like the Isleys, Marvin Gaye, Leon Ware or Leroy Hutson without ever having to resort to aping them or sampling their hooks. 12 tracks, including "Getting To Know Ya", "Lifetime", "Changed", "For Lovers Only", "Temporary Nite", "Silently", "Symptom Unkown" and "Now/At The Party".

✨✧ Erykah BaduBaduizm ... CD
Universal, 1997. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A strange title for a first record – but quite fitting, given the impact that Erykah Badu has had on soul music! The record defines a whole new style of expression – "Baduizm", if you will – one in which Erykah sings with a depth that stretches back through a century's worth of jazz, soul, and gospel influences – but works a groove in a stripped-down and forward-thinking mode that sets the pace for countless Neo Soul singers to come! Titles include "Certainly (Flipped It)", "Next Lifetime (radio)", "On & On", "Appletree", "No Love", "4 Leaf Clover", and "Sometimes (mix #9)". CD
