A rare bit of soul from the Hawaii scene of the 70s – and like some of the best of the genre, a record that's definitely got some influence from the warm Cali soul scene of the time, but which also brings plenty of its own style to play!

Trojan/Music On Vinyl (UK), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... About August 7, 2020
Reggae Power may have the name of the growing Jamaican genre in its title, but the set's still heavy on the rocksteady and ska rhythms that first provided fire for the sharp vocals of The Ethiopians – the trio's great way of trading vocals back and forth, at a level that seems perfectly ...

Great later grooves from Average White Band – a real gem from the point when the group was settling nicely into a mellow soul vein!

A massive bit of funk – and from 70s France, no less!

Mary J BligeMy Life ... LP
Uptown/MCA, 1994. New Copy (reissue)... On November 20, 2020
Mary J's second LP, and every bit as fine as the first. She's still working with Puffy and Chucky Thompson here, staying true to the commercial R&B formula that has been Blige's mainstay over her entire career. 13 tracks of the fine Brooklyn soul sound, plus a couple of interludes, including ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Trading Places (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... About July 20, 2020 (delayed)
Ultrafunk return on the strangely-titled Meat Heat album – a record that's a bit more disco than before, but which also still continues the tight funky approach of the Ultrafunk debut! Tracks are long, and have some Euro club elements in the mix – including some stepping strings over ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

OsibisaBlack Magic Night – Osibisa Live At The Royal Festival Hall ... LP
Bronze/Trading Places (UK), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... About July 20, 2020 (delayed)
A surprisingly strong set from Osibisa – one that's got a full, rich, soulful feel – much better than we might have expected for an album recorded at the Royal Festival Hall! The venue's no surprise, though, given that Osibisa were clearly on top of their game at the time – and ... (Global Grooves, Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

The mighty Don Bryant never got the chance to record much back in the day – save for one fantastic album and a set of singles on Hi Records – but he's really returned to form lately, and gets the chance to show the world his Memphis soul pedigree in all of its glory!

Hot Wax/Demon (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... About April 25, 2020 (delayed)
A stone burner from 100 Proof Aged In Soul – a group who really take off with this tight second record! The album's a classic from the days when soul music ruled AM radio on both sides of the tracks – and the rest of the album is equally great – packing that tight post-Motown ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

An incredible blend of southern and modern soul – the second album by soul songwriter Sydney Joe Qualls, recorded in both Chicago and Muscle Shoals, with a stone mellow sound that's outta site!

The rare second album from Gift Of Dreams – and that's saying a lot, because their debut was already pretty darn rare!
