Deniece WilliamsFree – The Columbia/Arc Recordings 1976 to 1988 (8CD set) ... CD
Columbia/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 70s/1980s. Used 8 CDs ... $36.99
An insanely big collection of work from the great Deniece Williams – eleven full albums, plus bonus tracks more – all to sum up a decade in which she was one of the strongest forces going in mainstream soul! Williams got her start as Deniece Chandler on the Chicago scene – where she had a vocal range that rivaled that of Minnie Riperton, which had her initially stepping out here in a mode that's a bit similar on the first album or two in the set – working with sophisticated soul production that really brings out the best in her sound! As things move on, she also showcases the way she can wrap that fantastic voice around a catchy groove and a playful hook – a quality that made Williams one of the surprising crossover soul stars as the 80s moved in, with a big run of hits that are all included here on albums that still represent a well-balanced blend of chart tracks and some deeper full length material. The set features the full albums Niecy, Songbird, When Love Comes Calling, My Melody, a second Niecy album, I'm So Proud, Let's Hear It For The Boy, Hot On The Trail, Water Under The Bridge, and Good As It Gets – plus an album of duets with Johnny Mathis, titled That's What Friends Are For. The final CD is filled with bonus tracks – single mixes, remixes, and more! CD

✨✧ Deniece WilliamsThis Is Niecy ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Genius work from Denice Williams – a singer who'd cracked the charts a bit as Denice Chandler, with a little girl soul sound, way back in the 60s – but who's grown up considerably by this essential 70s set! Chandler's voice is still a bit high – almost in a Minnie Riperton sort of mode – and she's working with some great help from the Earth Wind & Fire camp, considering that production is by Maurice White and Charles Stepney! Like the best EWF work of the 70s, the album's polished, but has a tremendous sense of depth – feelings that are mature and massively soulful, and which are quite different than Williams later pop from the 80s. Titles include her standout classic "Free", plus "It's Important to Me", "Watching Over", "Cause You Love Me Baby", "How'd I Know That Love Would Slip Away", "That's What Friends Are For", and "Slip Away". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light staining on the bottom half, a name in pen, and some wear. Label has a name in marker.)

✨✧ Jaki GrahamJaki Graham – 35th Anniversary Collection (Heaven Knows/Breaking Away/bonus tracks) (4CD set) ... CD
Cherry Pop (UK), Mid 80s. New Copy 4CD ... Just Sold Out!
A huge package of work from Jaki Graham – a set that features two full albums' worth of music, and even more than that in bonus material! First up is Heaven Knows – a really lovely little record from Jaki Graham – a set that's unabashedly turned towards the poppier side of the soul spectrum, but with the kind of care and class that made Jaki one of the standout acts of her generation! There's a mix of catchiness and maturity going on here – almost as if Deniece Williams and Phyllis Hyman got together and found a way to mix the best elements of their styles – carried forward with a style that has Graham shining equally well on the more playful numbers as on the serious ones. Titles include "Hold On", "The Facts Of Love", "Round & Round", "Heaven Knows", "Stay The Way You Are", and "What's The Name Of Your Game". Next is Breaking Away – a record with a wonderful balance between hook-heavy tunes and more serious moments – the kind of songs that offset Graham's chart appeal with a deeper presentation that echoes some of the stronger voices of the quiet storm generation of the 80s, while also pointing the way towards some of the crossover soul to come. Titles include "Set Me Free", "Breaking Away", "Still In Love", "Let's Get Blue", "Step Right Up", "Love Me Tonight", "Mated" with David Grant, and "Luv 2 Much". 4CD set features 34 more bonus tracks – all sorts of remixes, single versions, and other cuts from 12" singles and other sources from the time!

Johnny MathisYou Light Up My Life/That's What Friends Are For/Best Days Of My Life/Mathis Magic ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 19.99
A quartet of late 70s albums from Johnny Mathis – back to back in a single set! You Light Up My Life is mellow magic from Johnny Mathis – a late 70s set that updates his older style for a crossover audience in adult contemporary! The style is smooth and polished, but never so much so that Johnny's amazing voice can't shine through – thanks to soulful arrangements from Gene Page, who'd done plenty of work with hipper soul artists in the 70s – and Deniece Williams makes a great guest appearance on a number of tracks – really bringing Mathis into that duet style that would hit even bigger for the singer in the 80s. Titles include "If You Believe", "To Much Too Little Too Late", "How Deep Is Your Love", "It Was Almost Like A Song", and "Till Love Touches Your Life". That's What Friends Are For is a superb set of duets between Johnny Mathis and Deniece Williams – a set that's a key part of Johnny's rise into soul music during the 70s, and one that also forms a cornerstone of the early career of Deniece Williams too! Williams' soaring vocal range is a great match for the trademark Mathis modes – and the pair take on some great tunes that are mostly in a midtempo groove, which allows for all this fantastic interplay between the vocals – at a level that really shows what the duo can do together, and how they're not just two superstars who happened to be in the same studio. Titles include "You're All I Need To Get By", "Ready Or Not", "Touching Me With Love", "Me For You You For Me", and "Until You Come Back To Me". Best Days Of My Life features Johnny Mathis at the end of the 70s – still working in some of the best soul modes he explored during the decade, but also reaching forward in a more adult sort of style too! The album has Mathis working with arrangements from Gene Page – who balances things between some fuller soul numbers that have Johnny hitting a few groovier styles, and some mellower moments that preface the move he'd make towards adult contemporary in the 80s – but with a bit more of a laidback approach. Songs are from a variety of sources, and include a few nice remakes of older standards – and titles include "Gone Gone Gone", "The Bottom Line", "The Last Time I Felt Like This", "Begin The Beguine", "As Time Goes By", and "There You Are". Mathis Magic has a nice sort of bite at times – Johnny breaking out of just mellow modes, and getting a bit of inspiration from Gene Page, who handled the arrangements for the set. A few tunes almost kick into a clubby sort of vibe, in which Johnny's vocals soar nicely – and titles include "Love", "Night & Day", "My Body Keeps Changing My Mind", "No One But The One You Love", "To The Ends Of The Earth", and "Heart Soul Body & Mind". 2CD set features bonus tracks – "I Never Said I Love You", "So Deep In Love", "Without Us", and "Comme Ci Comme Ca".

VariousWonderland – The Spirit Of Earth Wind & Fire ... CD
Expansion (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
An amazing document of the wide wide reach of Earth Wind & Fire at the end of the 70s – that joyous, righteous spirit that not only flowed through their own music, but seemed to touch most of the soul and jazz world as well! The set's a much-needed look at the way that energy from EWF flowed out to so many other folks too – as the group's tunes were frequently covered, its members frequently worked with other artists, and Maurice White frequently lent his production talents to others in the studio! The package is overflowing with greatness from the great ones – a killers set of tracks that include "Got To Find My Way" by Pockets, "Tequila Mockingbird" by Dee Dee Bridgewater, "Let's Get Together" by Paulinho DaCosta, "City Lights" by Valerie Carter, "Ancient Source" by Caldera, "Answer To My Prayer" by Alton McClain & Destiny, "Let Love Groove Me" by Syliva St James, "The Boy I Left Behind" by Deniece Williams, "Glow Love" by Mighty Clouds Of Joy, "And I Do" by Abraham Laboriel, "I Waited" by Blue Magic, "Dream Come True" by Stargard, and "Theme For Relana" by Gene Harris.

✨✧ VariousFor The Love Of You – A Selection Of Soulful Lovers Rock Covers ... LP
Athens Of The North (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A really fantastic idea for a compilation – a set that brings together obscure covers of funk and soul tunes – mostly from the late 70s/early 80s generation, and mostly in a laidback, soul-stepping style! If you're a lover of rare groove, you'll recognize plenty of the songs, but not the versions – as these are all pretty darn rare and obscure, usually cut by indie artists who barely got any circulation for their recordings at the time – in the best tradition of super-rare work we usually expect from the Athens Of The North label! And while the title might indicate that the set features tracks in a lovers rock mode, the approach is maybe more indie soul overall – with only a hint of reggae inspiration in some of the grooves. The package features new takes on songs by Leon Ware, Mtume, Deniece Williams, Lowrell, and others – with titles that include "Rocking You Eternally" by Peter Hunningale, "For The Love Of You" by Simplicity, "What You Won't Do For Love" by Michael Gordon, "Do Me Baby" by Family Love, "Don't Let Love Get You Down" by Pure Silk, "Mellow Mellow Ride On" by Misses Misty, "Body Fusion" by Michael Prophet, and "Outstanding" by Al Charles.

✨✧ Kylie AuldistThis Is What Happiness Looks Like ... LP
Soul Bank, 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Aussie singer Kylie Auldist first cut her teeth singing for deep funk groups – but on a set like this, it's clear that she's ready to step out and soar into a wide world of soulful modes! The record brings in more 80s styles than we've heard from Kylie before – some keyboards and beats that bubble and turn nicely with the catchy lyrics of the tunes – and, in a way, it might almost seem like the singer is even better suited to music like this than some of the harder funk that got her going in the first place! The record's got a lot of tasty crossover cuts that almost hit mid 80s Deniece Williams territory – and titles include "All Mine", "Lyb", "Just Show Me", "Fly", "I Get It", "Everythink", and "Stay In Front". LP, Vinyl record album
