Mercury, 1979. Very Good+ ... $1.99
The title track to Bohannon's great album of the same name – a complicated rhythm number with a warmly soulful feel! "The Beat (part 2)" has a harder edge on the rhythms – almost a hint at club sounds in the 80s import scene. 12-inch, Vinyl record

One of our favorite tunes from the old school – a beautiful blend of vocoder vocals, sinister keyboards, and some cool splashy beats! This one ties it all together – the sound of the streets, the experiments of the import scene, and the changing energy in the clubs – all with a perfect blend of moods, and that wicked "D-d-d-d-d-d-ominatrix" chant! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Heaven 17Luxury Gap ... LP
BEF/Virgin (UK), 1983. Very Good ... $4.99
Heaven 17 soften up their politics a bit with this second album (yet still address class inequality issues with the title!) – but they also manage to replace their Marxist agenda with some groovier, more soul-based tunes – just the kind of material that helped push them out of import obscurity into more of a crossover market in the US! The album's fondly remembered for the electro dancefloor numbers "Temptation", "Come Live With Me", and "Let Me Go" – all of which stand a cut above the work of their predecessors Human League, and show an ability to go past simple electronic pop riffs – even if they are all pretty darn catchy! Other tracks are great too – and the record has a joyous, optimistic quality that's every bit the best side of this scene from the early 80s generation. Titles include "We Live So Fast", "Best Kept Secret", "Crushed By The Wheels Of Industry", and "Key To The World". (Rock, Soul) LP, Vinyl record album

VariousLet's Dance Records – Mike Macharello & Duane Thamm Jr – Chicago 1983 to 1985 ... CD
Let's Dance/Still Music, Mid 80s. New Copy ... $9.99
A cool collection from the earliest years of the Chicago house music scene – a time when the city's grooves were maybe as beholden to the styles from overseas as they were the new vibe going on in the Windy City! Lots of these tracks have heavier beats than basslines, and almost reflect some of the ways that New York street soul was using drum machines in the years after hip hop got going – but there's also an approach that shows that strong Chicago love of import dance records from the UK, Italy, and beyond – with modes that were borrowed strongly, then reshaped to make the more familiar grooves that influenced generations to come. As with other Still Music projects, the package is as much a history lesson as a music compilation – a great look into a tiny little label, with detailed notes, and tracks that include "Jump Trax Mix Down" by Duane Thamm Jr, "Single Girl (voc)" by Knight Action with Sedenia, "R-Trax (special mix)" by Knight Action, "Crazy Or Not (inst)" by Mike Tomaselli, "Nobody (club mix)" by Joey O & Out Of Control, "I Like That In You (dub)" by Belinda Hoover, "Crazy Or Not (virgin)" by Mike Tomaselli, "R-Trax/D-Rail (single dance mix)" by Knight Action featuring Sedenia, and "Jump Trax Mix Up" by Duane Thamm Jr. (Funky Compilations, Soul) CD

Tony AllenHere Comes The Night Owl – West Coast R&B & Doo Wop 1954 to 1961 ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 50s-Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
West coast r&b, doo wop and all around fantastic numbers from the mid 50s to the dawn of the 60s – fantastic stuff from Tony Allen – not the Afrobeat legend, but the unjustly overlooked singer! Tony had a bunch of excellent singles on the important r&b labels of the day, but never really hit a stride that carried him into the mainstream. It's as good as the better known r&b and proto rock of the day, and this CD is a wonderful introduction to a singer we haven't been well enough acquainted with! Includes tunes cut for labels such as Specialty, Ebb, Crown, Modern, Kent & Ultra – rollicking solo numbers and others with group backing by the Chimes, The Champs, The Night Owls and The Wanders. 26 tracks in all with several previously unissued! Includes "Check Yourself Baby", "Nite Owl", "Especially", "I", "Come Back", "Lovers Mountain", "If I Had Aladdin's Lamp", "Give Me A Chance", "Don't You Know I Love You", "I Found An Angel", "It Hurts Me So", "Check Yourself", "Be My Love, Be My Love" and more.

Archie Bell & The DrellsI Can't Stop Dancing ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Fantastic work from Archie Bell & The Drells – an important record that bridges their earlier and later sounds! It's a key transitional album for the crew – as most of the album's in the harder rawer Texas funk groove of earlier year, but some of it features newer production by Gamble & Huff, in that excellent smooth dancing style that took Archie light years from his roots. The Gamble & Huff tracks are the most obvious – the singles "I Can't Stop Dancing" and "Do The Choo Choo" – and the album's got other great cuts like the original tunes "Do You Feel It?", "You're Such A Beautiful Child", "Jammin In Houston", and "Love Will Rain On You", plus versions of Curtis Mayfield's "I've Been Trying" and "Sometimes I Wonder".

✨✧ Black IvoryBlack Ivory Anthology ... LP
Playback, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 LPs ... Out Of Stock
Amazing music from one of the coolest vocal groups of the 70s – a hip New York trio who never hit the heights of the Jackson 5 or Chi-Lites, but who are maybe even more important to our ears overall! Black Ivory started young – with a harmony style that was incredible for their age, and which was perfect for both funky numbers and late nite ballads, in a way that was similar to The Whatnauts – and as the 70s moved on, they also grew up and found a style that worked well for clubbier material – which they crafted in a way that was surprisingly strong, and far different from any of the disco cliches of the period. Even in the early 80s, they could hang around the farther reaches of the soul scene – keeping an indie harmony vibe strong when others were losing steam. All the best aspects of the group's sound are collected here – in an overstuffed, double-length package that includes the cuts "Walking Downtown", "Big Apple Rock", "Surrender", "I Keep Asking Questions", "Just Leave Me Some", "Wishful Thinking", "You & I", "Don't Turn Around", "Find The One Who Loves You", "I'll Find A Way", "Spinning Around", "We Made It", "Love Won't You Stay", "Mainline", "White Wind", and "You Are My Lover".

Mary J BligeWhat's The 411? (25th anniversary edition) ... LP
Uptown/MCA, 1992. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
The landmark debut of Mary J Blige – a record that not only did a great job of blending underground hip hop and mainstream soul sensibilities – but maybe also opened the door for the Neo Soul revolution to come! Mary comes on here with a fresh new vision in female soul – one that's informed by the youth and upfront energy of the hip hop female MCs that preceded her – but with a depth that also makes Blige sort of the new Aretha Franklin for the end of the century – a deep soul singer, but one who's equally at home in the streets and the studio. Important production is by a young Sean Combs – some of his first great work on record – and the set also features guest appearances from Busta Rhymes, Little Shawn, Grand Puba, Erick Sermon, and CL Smooth. Titles include "Real Love", "Sweet Thing", "Love No Limit", "You Remind Me", "Reminisce", "What's The 411", "I Don't Want To Do Anything", "Changes I've Been Going Through", "Slow Down", and "My Love".

✨✧ Eddie BoSlippin & A Slidin – Singles As & Bs 1956 to 1962 ... CD
Jasmine (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Maybe the most overstuffed collection of work we've ever seen from early New Orleans soul legend Eddie Bo – a set that not only includes his early classics for the Ric label, but also more obscure material for Apollo, Chess, Ace, and Swan – all brought together here with a number of unissued tracks from the time! If you don't know Eddie, you're in for a treat – as the singer first began in a more familiar New Orleans R&B mode, but already had a gritty style that helped him first pave the way towards Crescent City soul, then some even more important funk territory as the 60s moved on! This set focuses on six key years in Bo's early career – clearly a very fruitful time, as the package features 43 tracks in all – titles that include "Baby", "I'm Wise", "Happy Tears", "I'll Be Satisfied", "Walk That Walk", "Oh Oh", "My Dearest Darling", "I Love To Rock & Roll", "So Glad", "I'm So Tired", "Hey There Baby", "I Need Someone", "Tell It Like It Is", "Every Dog Got His Day", "Roamin-titis", "Now Let's Pop Eye", "Hep Hep Hooray", "I Cry On", and lots lots more!

A legendary bit of fuzzy funk from James Brown – an important collaboration with the mighty Dave Matthews, who brings a more tripped-out feel to the record than some of James' other King sessions of the time! Matthews adds in lots of psych-influenced guitar – used very different than the scratching riffs of the other JB material of the late 60s – in ways that almost make the record a second chapter to Dave's Grodeck Whipperjenny album – a gritty blend of funk, soul, and psych – all with some nice touches by the James Brown Band! All tracks are co-written by Brown and Matthews, and all are instrumental – and titles include "Can Mind", "Don't Mind", "Bob Scoward", and "Just Enough Room for Storage". CD

CommodoresNatural High ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A pivotal album for The Commodores – still very funky here, with a sound that stays true to their roots – yet also able to reach out into some of the mature mellow ballads that would make them a huge crossover act in years to come! James Carmichael arranges and produces here – really helping the group to find that key focus, and make some important use of the vocals of Lionel Richie. Mr R steps out strongly on the crossover hit "Three Times A Lady" – but the whole group more than holds their own on the funky killers "X Rated Movie", "Fire Girl", and "I Like What You Do" – as well as the great mellow groover "Say Yeah".

✨✧ CybotronEnter Cybotron ... LP
Fantasy, 1983. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A mindblowing debut from Cybotron – one of the most unusual groups to ever hail from Detroit – and that's saying a hell of a lot, given the musical legacy of the city! Cybotron have a sound that's starkly electronic, and a huge influence on later electro, hip hop, techno, and house – served up here as a spare, fuzzy approach to funk – but with lots of the colder touches you'd find from post-punk imports at the time! The blend is quite unique, and even more unusual given the fact that the trio were working in virtual obscurity on the Detroit scene – as an early project from the legendary Juan Atkins, with guitarist Jon-5, and the mysterious electronician 3070! There's more funk here than most of the group's electro contemporaries – but the sound is still nicely cold in all the right parts too – and titles include the seminal "Clear", which was years ahead of its time – plus "Cosmic Cars", "Cosmic Raindance", "Industrial Lies", "The Line", and "Alleys Of Your Mind".

Fania All StarsQue Pasa – The Best Of The Fania All Stars ... CD
Columbia, Late 70s. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
Some of the best of the best of The Fania All Stars – magical music from that short stint when the combo were recording for Columbia Records in the late 70s! While at Columbia, the group grew even more than the styles of their roots at the Fania label – picking up some hipper touches of soul, club, and fusion – all of which were worked nicely to tighten up their groove. And while you might think that after playing side-long jams, these shorter cuts could represent a more commercial side for the group – to us, this shift is an important one that has the ensemble taking the old energy of the Latind descarga and bringing it nicely into focus for a huge crossover audience. The cuts here sparkle and glisten with the best non-Latin funk and club of the time – and the CD features 13 tracks from the albums Spanish Fever, Rhythm Machine, Cross Over, and Delicate & Jumpy – titles that include "Coro Miayre", "Ella Fue", "Fania All Stars Cha Cha Cha", "Los Bravos", "Peanuts", "Prepara", "Que Pasa", "Sin Tu Carino", "Isadore", and "Foofer Soofer".

✨✧ Fingers IncAnother Side ... LP
Jack Trax (UK), 1988. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A beautiful full length set from Fingers Inc – one of the more important groups on the Chicago house underground of the 80s – and maybe one of the most fully developed, too! The set shows that keyboardist Larry Heard and crew really had a lot more to offer than just standard house music – as the record's a treasure trove of 80s soul – with a mix of dancefloor groovers, midtempo burners, and heavy house cuts all laid out wonderfully over the double-length set – really developing the Fingers sound, but showing a sense of soul that didn't always come through on their more cosmic 12" single records. Both Robert Owens and Ron Wilson sing on the record – and the vibe is maybe a bit like that moment when Blaze stepped into soul music on their 25 Years Later set for Motown. Titles include "Mystery Friend", "So Glad", "Shadows", "Can You Feel It", "A Path", and "Bring Down The Walls". LP, Vinyl record album

Rock Beat, 1950s/1960s. New Copy 5CD & book ... $11.99 49.99
A completely wonderful collection of work from the legendary 5 Royales – one of the most important groups of the R&B generation, with a strong influence on 60s soul – both in the way they handled their vocals, and the way they used their guitar! The music here is fantastic – some of the most hard-hitting of their generation, and quite different than some of the sweeter or more commercial vocal group work of the period – not really doo wop, and more a strong lead singer (the mighty Lowman Pauling), backed by some great harmonies to really send him over the top! This beautiful package features all the recordings made by the group during their key years – many cuts for the legendary King Records, plus later work for House Of Blues and a few other labels – all packaged in a cool book-style cover with loads of notes and images. 141 tracks in all – including some previously unreleased songs – all in a cool 7" hardcover book!

✨✧ Four TopsChanging Times ... LP
Motown, 1970. Very Good- ... Out Of Stock
A very hip album from the Four Tops – cut with kind of a political/social edge, and a heavy vibe that was similar to what the Temptations had been using on some of their important albums for Motown at the end of the 60s. In fact, this one's got so much of that righteous Temps vibe that we wonder if the big boys at Motown didn't say to the Four Tops, "Hey, why don't you do an album like them?" Arrangements are by David Van DePitte and Jimmy Roach – and the record begins with a melange of sound effects and odd sounds, before sliding into the socially-conscious "In These Changing Times". However, the group still retains their wonderfully sweet vocal edge, and even though the political agenda's up front on the album, they still come through strongest on the sweeter and more love-oriented songs. Titles include "Right Before My Eyes", "Something's Tearing At The Edges Of Time", "Sing A Song Of Yesterday", and a medley of "Long & Winding Road" and "In These Changing Times".

Debbie HarryKookoo ... LP
Chrysalis, 1981. Sealed ... $14.99
A nice change in sound for Debbie Harry – thanks to Chic production from Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards – who really help the solo singer find a groove that's quite different than her work in Blondie! The style's a mixture of the funky club that Chic did so well, with elements that lean a bit more towards an early 80s rockish dancefloor – almost with a vibe that echoes some of the UK imports trickling over to these shores at the time, but with a definite New York vibe underneath! The setting gives Harry's vocals a great way to hit a more playful nature – that sound that was creeping in a bit in Blondie, but which some folks thought was wrong for the group – and Chris Stein is still on hand to bring in some street-sensitive riffing guitar. Titles include "Backfired", "Military Rap", "Oasis", "Surrender", "Chrome", "Jump Jump", and "The Jam Was Moving". (Rock, Soul) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jewell Gospel TrioMany Little Angels In The Band ... CD
Gospel Friend (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An essential collection of rare material by this important female gospel trio of the 50s – a group who's not only known for bringing a style to the music that was ever bit as great as male group gospel of the pre-soul years – but who also are the initial early home to later soul superstar Candi Staton! As you can tell by the cover image, the girls are quite young – at least on many of these recordings – but this isn't kiddie music at all, as there's a deeply soulful style of singing that's very mature, and which instantly sets fire to these messages of spirit – with a vibrant style that usually just features some romping piano in the lead, alongside dynamic vocals. The lineup shifts a bit, but Candi is on most of these recordings – which also saw the light of day on Excello as singles – and the set also features a few tracks from later years, with Shirley Ann Lee on vocals. Titles include "Many Little Angels In The Band", "At The Cross", "Rest Rest Rest", "Too Late", "Sin Is To Blame", "It's All Over Me", "My Faith Is In Thee", "I Looked Down The Line & I Wondered", and "Somebody's Knocking At Your Door".

MCA/PTG (Netherlands), 1985. Used ... Out Of Stock
Damn, One Way never lets us down – and although the group cut many albums back in the day, all of them have some great standout moments! The groove here seems even tighter than ever, but never slick or commercial – a very important distinction, given that so many of One Way's contemporaries really let things slide as they headed for the pop charts. Not so with Al Hudson and group, though – as they always know how to balance things out with all the best elements they had from the start – a good mix of upbeat groovers and some mellower steppers – the latter of which really make us love the record. Titles include the smooth stepper "More Than Friends, Less Than Lovers", which features lead vocals by Ewana Wilson, and some sweet harmonies by the Ridgeways that really make the track – and other titles include "Let's Talk", "Serving It", "Condemned", and "If I Knew".

Prisonaires/Marigolds/SolotonesOnly Believe – Unissued & Rare Nashville Vocal Group Recordings ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $13.99 23.98
Stunning sounds from the legendary Prisonaires – the important Memphis vocal group that first formed in prison, but was able to release a fair bit of commercial recordings over the years! The package is a great companion to previously-issued material on the group – as it features rare sides by the lineup, plus related groups that also featured the great tenorist Johnny Bragg in the lead – as well as some very obscure, and well-recorded live tracks that were only pressed on a limited private album for the prison management! Despite their roots behind bars, The Prisonaires have a style that's key in the development of the vocal group in the pre-soul years – a link between older group styles of the 30s and some of the more spiritual inflections that would blossom during the 60s – not really gospel harmonizing, but also not doo wop or pop, either – a really unique hybrid of elements that was very influential over the years. The package is awash in detail – 58 pages of notes and history, with a strong focus on Bragg – and the set features 18 tracks by The Prisonaires, including "In The Garden", "Suppertime", "Gentle Hands", "Just Walkin In The Rain", "Baby Please", "Two Strangers", "Lucy You Know I Want You", and "There Is Love In You" – plus four more by The Marigolds, including "Why Don't You", "Rollin Stone", and "Don't Say Tomorrow" – and six more by The Solotones, including "Two Strangers", "Front Page Blues", and "Pork & Beans".

A very important crossover soul album – a huge hit for Otis Redding that was released after his tragic death in December 1967 – but it's also hard to say if it would have had the impact it did had Redding not passed while the LP was still in production. In a way, the record sort of set the stage for the mythologies of pop stars that would surround the tragedies in the coming years of the late 60s – with liner notes on the back by Jon Landau about the impact of Redding's work and passing on the rest of the music industry, which would be even more charged with meaning to folks buying the album at the time, who certainly knew that Redding had cut "Dock of the Bay" a few days before his death, and had missed its meteoric rise to #1 after his passing. And in fact, the album itself is more of a loose collection of tracks pulled from singles and other sources to cash in on Redding's passing – and includes odd numbers like "The Huckle Buck", which had previously appeared on a Stax promo album, or "Tramp", his famous funky duet with Carla Thomas.

Capitol, 1980. Near Mint- ... $7.99
The last album ever from the amazing Minnie Riperton – and one of her greatest records as well! The album was sadly issued after Minnie's untimely early passing from this planet – but it's a heavenly batch of tunes that definitely shows that her love of music lives forever – thanks not only to a strong talent for songwriting and sublime production from husband Richard Rudolph – but also some important help from a variety of all-star guests who are all brought together out of deep affection for Minnie. George Benson, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Roberta Flack, Patrice Rushen, Peabo Bryson and others all make key appearances here – working with arrangements from Johnny Pate, and vocals the Minnie recorded for the record before its completion.

The music's not commercial, but some of the sharpest Motown soul of the time – the kind of work that made the young Jimmy as important a solo male act to Motown as Marvin Gaye – thanks to a wonderfully crackling, raspy style of singing that makes any tune really stand out strongly. Some of the numbers here are originals associated with Ruffin, and others are 60s hits by others – but completely remade by Jimmy with his wonderful approach – and titles include the classic "What Becomes Of The Brokenhearted", plus "I've Passed This Way Before", "Gonna Give Her All The Love I've Got", "World So Wide Nowhere To Hide", "Black Is Black", "Bless You", "How Can I Say I'm Sorry", and "As Long As There Is Love".

Nina SimoneNina Simone At Newport ... LP
Colpix, 1960. Very Good ... $19.99
A key early moment for Nina Simone – recorded live at Newport in 1960, at a time when the festival was one of the most important showcases for groundbreaking jazz – and a perfect setting for Nina to really let loose in that righteous style that would fuel her career during the 60s! Given that Simone could sometimes be turned out of the cabaret crowd with her politics, the warm welcome she gets at Newport is very fitting support – and you can really hear it in the ay she approaches the material! The set's a hip batch of tunes that includes a few standards like "Trouble In Mind" and "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", all done with the righteous Simone flair – plus other lesser-known tracks like "Flo Me La" and "Nina's Blues", opened up in the setting with some nice small combo backing!

Colpix, 1959. Very Good+ ... $19.99
An important early live show for Nina Simone – a move from the world of small nightclubs (as mentioned in the title of her first record), to the classy Town Hall venue – working in front of an audience filled with left-leaning listeners who were the perfect crowd to get the unique bag she was working on at the time! The performance is a great one – mellow, moody, and a bit folksy – with Nina singing and playing piano with power that really rings out in the larger space – really egged on by the enthusiastic response of the audience. Titles include her classic reading of "Black Is The Color Of My True Love's Hair", plus "The Other Woman", "Under The Lowest", "Summertime", "You Can Have Him", "Wild Is The Wind", "Return Home", and "Cotton Eyed Joe".

SpidersSpiders – The Imperial Sessions ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. Used 2 CDs ... $22.99
Lost harmony soul by an excellent New Orleans vocal group! The Spiders were certainly not chart-toppers in their day – but they did get the chance to cut a great number of singles in the 50s for the Imperial label, who were having some great luck on the Crescent City scene with other singers. The set is a rich document of the group's talent – important not only because New Orleans wasn't really as big a hub of vocal groups as cities like New York or Chicago, but also because soul singer Chuck Carbo was a member of the group, and did some fantastic leads! 47 titles in all – and tracks include "John The Revelator", "Is It True", "Witchcraft", "You're The One", "Mellow Mama", "Lost & Bewildered", "Tears Begin To Flow", "Why Do I Love You", "I'm Slipping In", "Sukey, Sukey, Sukey", "Bells In My Heart", "I'm Searchin", and "Better Be On My Way".

The album's got a nice mixture of Philly groove and tighter crossover arrangements from the likes of Norman Harris, Bobby Martin, Lenny Pakula, and Richard Rome – all top-shelf Philly soul talents who really help move the album past the territory of the girl group soul of the trio's earlier work! Titles include the hit "When Will I See You Again", plus the long-running classic "Dirty Ol' Man", and the cuts "Can't You See What You're Doing To Me", "I Didn't Know", "I Like Being A Woman", and "Year Of Decision".

✨✧ Allen Toussaint & OthersArtist Producer Songwriter ... CD
Sansu/Sunset Blvd, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous tribute to the genius of Allen Toussaint – the man who almost single-handedly shaped the sound of New Orleans soul in the 60s! As the title implies, Toussaint is featured here as an artist, producer, and songwriter – and most tracks were issued on his Sansu Records label, and recorded in his Sea Saint studios – a spot that was as important to New Orleans as Chess was to Chicago, and Stax was to Memphis! The singers vary here, but the songs and instrumentation have a very unified vibe – plenty of Nola funk at the bottom, and some killer lyrics that often have a lot of sharpness and wit. Tracks include "So Good" by Ernie K Doe, "Sneakin Sally From The Alley" by Lee Dorsey, "Hercules" by Aaron Neville, "Gone Gone Gone" by Eldridge Holmes, "Don't Pity Me" by Curly Moore, "Bad Luck" by Betty Harris, "All I Want Is You" by Zilla Mayes, "Wheel Of Fire" by Etta Jones, "If You Love Her" by Benny Spellman, "Omar Khayyam" by The Rubiyats, "Here Come The Girls" by Ernie K Doe, "How To Pick A Winner" by Maurice Williams, "Star Revue" by Warren Lee, "Greatest Love" by Willie West, "The Book" by Eldridge Holmes, "Wait A Minute Baby" by Diamond Joe, and "We Are The People" and "Working In A Coal Mine" by Toussaint himself.

Playback, Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
Incredible work from The Whatnauts – easily one of our favorite soul vocal groups ever! The trio work in the same sweet soul modes as more famous early 70s contemporaries on the east coast scene – like The Delfonics or Stylstics – but they've also got a special approach that's quite unique – sometimes more heartbreaking than just about any other group we can think of, but also sometimes a bit more tough, too – almost as if they're able to get in touch with all their emotional spectrum with effortless ease, and serve it up in a way that's completely unfettered from any too-commercial modes! They can blow us away on late nite ballads, then turn around and hit us over the head with deep harmonies on funky cuts too – all produced with a nice raw edge during their important years on the Stang/All-Platinum New Jersey soul label. This set brings together most of their best tracks from that time – including "Just Can't Lose Your Love", "I'll Erase Away Your Pain", "Blues Fly Away", "Try Me", "I Dig Your Act", "Soulwalking", "Let Me Be That Special One", "Why Can't People Be Colors Too", "Message From A Black Man", "Give Him Up", "Just Can't Leave My Baby", "I'm So Glad I Found You", "She's Gone To Another", "Tweedly Dum Dum", and "You Gave Me True Loving". 2CD set also features unreleased tracks – "Strolling" and "Genuine", plus GSF tracks "Instigating", "I Can't Stand To See You Cry", and "I Wasn't There" – as well as both vocal and instrumental takes of later singles "Still I'll Rise" and "Help Is On The Way" – and later Pic Hit singles "Party On", "All I Need", and "This Is It" – as well as an alternate mix of their classic "Girls".

WhispersOne For The Money/Open Up Your Love ... CD
Soul Train/Castle (UK), 1976/1977. Used ... $19.99
2 classic mid 70s albums by The Whispers – back to back, and with bonus tracks! One For The Money marks an important shift for the group – one in which they're working in an uptempo Philly soul mode, with arrangements by the great Norman Harris! Norman put together the incredible "Living Together (In Sin)", and plays some excellent guitar on the track – and he takes the sweet west coast harmonies of The Whispers into the realm of Philly Groove greatness. Other nice tracks include "You're Only As Good As You Think You Are", "Sounds Like A Love Song", and "In My Heart". Open Up Your Love has The Whispers moving back to work on the west coast – after cutting a few albums in Philly – picking up Gene Page to handle arrangements, still very much in the strident groove mode of their Philly work. However, there's also some great ballad cuts on the album – tracks that hearken back to some of their earlier recordings, with heavenly harmonies cast amidst the smooth group sound that they helped to pioneer. Titles include "Open Up Your Love", "You Are Number One", "I'm Gonna Make You My Wife", and "Chocolate Girl". CD has 17 tracks in all – with the bonus cuts "In Love Forever" and the 12" mix of "One For The Money". CD

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!

A treasure trove of gospel from the New York scene – all recorded for the Revelation Records imprint – a partner label to Bobby Robinson's legendary Fire & Fury labels! Given Robinson's strong ear for early soul, R&B, and blues, there's a lot of rootsy power in these recordings – a way of producing both the vocals and instrumental passages in styles that definitely showcase Revelation's importance during these key birth of soul years – with lots of modes that would end up in secular soul a few years later! The CD's overflowing with gems that are sure to please both soul and gospel fans – 27 tracks that include "Guide Me" by The Soul Finders, "Sinner Like Me" by Christine Clark, "I Want To Go Home" by Drexall Singers, "If I Live Right" by Five Singing Stars, "Prodigal Son" by Mighty Gians, "I Know Who Holds Tomorrow" by Dr Coleman & Her Gospel Singers, "Pick Up Your Bed" by Twilight Gospel Singers, and "I've Got A Home" by Holy Wonders.

The work here puts De-Lite right on the same level as important indies on the east coast at the turn of the 70s – and shows an especially strong ability to capture the best group styles of the period – from the sublime harmony styles being crafted in New Jersey and Philly, to some of the growing funky styles in the pre-disco years! The set's a much-needed look at this early part of the label – and also features titles on the related Red Coach label too – in a wonderful package of 25 tracks that includes "I'll Never Let You Get Away" by Universal Mind, "So Long Sweet Little Girl" by Reggie Saddler Revue, "I'm At The Breaking Point" by The Trumains, "Girl (part 1)" by Philadelphia Ambassadors, "Gotta Let Some Sunshine Into My Life" by The Exceptionals, "I'll Always Love You" by The New Cymbals, "So Fine" by The Fiestas, "The Story Of Our Love" by The Carstairs, "Love You Can't Shake It" by Reggie Saddler & The Jammers, "Nothing In The World" by The Electras, "Back On The Road Again" by Richmond International, and "Love Foundation" by Electrified Action.

The "disco" in the title should be taken lightly – as these cuts didn't play at the slick uptown dance spots – but were instead the soundtrack for the cool spots happening downtown, as the previous loft culture morphed into clubs, in this very special blend of the energy of CBGB and the underground soulful dancefloors.

A fantastic collection of postwar gospel recordings from the legendary Nashboro Records – one of the most important imprints for the music back in the 50s and 60s! We rank the work of Nashboro right up with the famous Houston-bred productions of Peacock Records – and as Peacock was part of the secular soul label Duke, Nashboro was also part of the blues powerhouse Excello – which means that the cuts here are put together at a level that's maybe got as much understanding of the needs of the record racks and jukebox scene, as they are aimed at the higher ideals of the lyrics! Nashboro excelled especially in the sorts of small vocal groups that can make gospel singles from this time every bit as much a slice of harmony heavy as rare doo wop tracks – and titles here include "Seven Angels" by The Trumpeteers, "Just One Step" by Little Johnny Jones & The Little Jones Singers, "I Received My Blessing" by Radio Four, "Touch Me Lord Jesus" by Angelic Gospel Singers, "Give Me My Flowers" by The Consolers, "I Would Not Be A Sinner" by Dixie Nightingales, "Jesus Keeps Me Alive" by The Skylarks, "Sit Down Servant" by Swanee Quintet, "When Jesus Stays Home" by Southern Echoes Singers, and "Rest From My Labor" by Supreme Angels. 16 cuts in all – and very nicely done!

There's plenty of hip hop elements at work here – harder beats, more electro modes, and other street soul elements – mixed with a rising current of house music, but again with a style that's much more tuned towards a New York vibe than the rest. 2CD set features 24 tracks in all – most of them rare 12" mixes – and titles include "Go Bang (Francois K mix)" by Dinosaur L, "Tiger Stripes (ext mix)" by Felix, "Radio Rhythm (short voc)" by Clandestine, "Weekend (club the wam bam mix)" by Todd Terry, Happiness (orig Frankie Knuckles club 12" mix)" by Nicole, "Let Me Love You For Tonight (orig house club 12")" by Kariya, "Just Waiting For You (master dub 12")" by Ann Marie, "Come Into My Life (Mantronix 12")" by Joyce Sims, "A Little Bit Of Lovin (clubby dubby mix)" by Chocolette, "Cornbelt (Larry Levan mix)" by Dinosaur L, "Chill Pill (Danny Krivit mix)" by Sounds Of JHS Brooklyn, and "What Am I Gonna Do About You (Steve Anderson silk on steel mix)" by Tafuri.

These cuts are all pulled from those magical years of the 50s – and come from a variety of important indie labels of the time – Cash, Specialty, Atlantic, Imperial, and others – collected together here in a wonderful set that really illustrates the mighty power of a rock-solid instrumental single! Some of these cuts were hits, but they're mixed with other less-remembered gems too – in a well-done package with track-by-track notes, and the kind of sound quality that goes way past the dodgier sets on the market.

An overdue look at the lost Lamp Records – a crucially important indie soul label on the Indy scene of the late 60s and early 70s – a company that was never as big as Chess or Motown, but did a similar job of documenting its city's musical scene! Indianapolis was always a very diverse city – and gave the world bigger funk and jazz luminaries like Wes Montgomery or Funk Inc – but like most cities of its size, Indy also sported a rich underground of great singers and bands who were really trying to make it big – all really great artists who were captured in deep detail by the Lamp Records label! Now Again/Stones Throw have given us a slight look at this scene in the past – most notably with their reissues of work by Ebony Rhythm Band – but this is the first really detailed dig into the label, with a huge amount of material that's only ever circulated on very rare original pressings. The work is a great mix of group soul, funky cuts, sweet harmony, and even a bit of gospel – and titles on this 2LP set include "Somebody Please" by The Vanguards, "You Made My Everything" by Words Of Wisdom Truth Revue, "Hum Bug" by Diplomatics, "I Didn't Know" by Funder Cooper, "Go To Work" by Revolution Compared To What, "Everybody Who Wants To Be Free" by Amnesty, "Can I Call You Baby" by The Pearls, "Take Me" by Fabulous Souls, "High On The Hill" by Squidd, "Soul Heart Transplant" by Ebony Rhythm Band, "See The Lord" by Mighty Indiana Travelers, "Huh" by Tony Black & Revolution Compared To What, "I'm Only Human" by Embers, "It Swells My Desire" by The PHDs, and "More Than I Can Stand" by Moonlighters.

Those rare treasures are brought forth here – in a beautiful package that's also overflowing with fantastic notes that finally give this lost history its due – all handled by Al Kent – who's a hell of a mixer himself, as well as an underground club historian. 3CD set is overflowing with gems – and titles include "I Just Wanna Say I Love You (John Luongo rmx)" by Leon Collins, "What About Love (Tony Gioe rmx)" by Marboo, "Ten Percent (Walter Gibbons Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Double Exposure, "Inside America (Rick Gianatos disco queen acetate edit)" by Juggy Murray Jones, "Dancing Free (John Luongo rmx)" by Hot Ice, "Black Water Gold (Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by The Sunshine Band, "Magic Bird Of Fire (Francois Kevorkian Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "It's Good For The Soul (Jay Negron Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "My Love Is Free (Walter Gibbons disco madness rmx)" by Double Exposure, "Reaching Out For Happiness (Jonathan Fearing rmx)" by Fay Hauser, "Let Me Be Your Fantasy (Tom Savarese rmx)" by Love Symphony Orchestra, "The Beat Goes On & On (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Ripple, "I Wanna Be Near You (John Morales Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Ruby Andrews, "I've Been Looking For Somebody (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, "The Disco Scene (Rick Gianatos rmx)" by Lake Shore Drive, "Bumpsie's Whipping Cream (Tom Savarese rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, "Janice (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Skip Mahoney, "My Number's Up (Tee Scott rmx)" by The Salsoul Orchestra, "The Love Bug Done Bit Me Again (David Todd rmx)" by Skyliners, "LA Sunshine (Robert Ouimet rmx)" by Aura, "Love Has Come My Way (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Tony Valor Sound Orchestra, "Handsome Ma (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Sparkle Tuhran & Friends, "Love Thang (Tee Scott rmx)" by First Choice, "Burn Me Up (Jellybean Benitez edit)" by Kay Gees, "Love Is The Message (Tee Scott rmx)" by Brooklyn Express, "Changes (Jellybean Benitez rmx)" by Chain Reaction, "J'Ouvert (Frank Sestito rmx)" by John Gibbs & The Jam Band, "By The Way You Dance (Bobby DJ Guttadaro rmx)" by Bunny Sigler, "It's Good For The Soul (Walter Gibbons disco madness version)" by Salsoul Orchestra, and "It's A Better Than Good Time (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by Gladys Knight & The Pips.

✨✧ VariousPut The Whole Armour On – Female Black Gospel 1940s/1950s ... CD
Gospel Friend (Germany), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
A wealth of female gospel from the early years of the genre – served up here on a double-length set that features tracks from some of the important stars of the time, plus a host of rare gems that we've never heard before! Most of the material here features a lead female singer with a smaller group – in the style that Sister Rosetta Tharpe made famous, often with an equal tie to R&B in some of the other material – backing that's spare, but which might have an electric guitar or bluesy piano – even though the fantastic vocalist is always right out front in the lead. As with other titles in this series, the package is great – a very thoughtful, essential collection of rare gospel – 54 tracks in all, with titles that include "Just A Few Days Of Labor" by Sallie Martin, "Move Up A Little Higher" by Madam Ernestin Martin, "A Traveler's Tune" by Marie Knight, "Own Me As A Child" by Lockhart Singers, "What's The News" by Sister Rosetta Tharpe, "Didn't It Rain" by Simmons/Akers Trio, "Until We Met" by Mary Frazier, "He Knows My Heart" by Sister Elisabeth Eustice, "When God Dips His Love In My Heart" by Ethen Davenport, and "Follow In His Footsteps" by Angelic Gospel Singers.

VariousSoulgliding – Presented By Rainer Trueby ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A whole new genre of soul music – all pulled together by the legendary Rainer Trueby – famous global DJ, and the guiding force behind Compost Records for many many years! This set's all older work, a mix of rare and familiar soul records from the late 70s and early 80s – but Trueby focuses on tunes that have a mellower vibe, yet still "glide" along with the rhythms – this beautiful blend of spacey soul and gentle funk, often with keyboards as a lead instrument, which makes for some sweet moogy touches along the way! We knew a fair bit of these tunes before, but they sound especially wonderful together – a great endorsement not just for Trueby, but also for the importance of a well-done compilation like this. Titles include "Lover's Holiday" by Crystal Winds, "Sweetness" by Cast, "Makin Love In The Fast Lane" by Mellaa, "Nature Boy" by Ray & James, "Next To Me" by Bridge, "Just A Little More" by Fifth Of Heaven, "Lady Of The Night" by Les Hooper, "Camouflage" by Ambiance, "It Ain't No Big Thing" by Donna McGhee, "Memories Of Moments" by Demo Cates, "Without Love" by Peter Brown, and "Dust To Dust" by Cloud One.

✨✧ VariousStax Does The Beatles (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Stax, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Stax Does The Beatles – and they do a pretty nice job of it too! The collection's a much better one than you might expect from the title and cover – as the grooves here are all pretty darn soulful, and not just simple copycat modes of hits by the Fab Four – but even more importantly, the package features a number of previously unissued tracks from the Stax Records vaults – making it even more essential, even if you have some of the originals! The vibe here is totally great – a real transformation of The Beatles' original ideas – taken into heavier Memphis soul territory, which often gets increasingly righteous during some of the later recordings here. Previously unreleased titles include "Got To Get You Into My Life" by Booker T & The MGs, "Yesterday (live)" by Carla Thomas, "With A Little Help From My Friends" by The Bar-Kays, and an alternate take of "Day Tripper" by Otis Redding – plus "Help" by David Porter, "And I Love Her" by Reggie Milner, "Something" by Isaac Hayes, "Hey Jude" by The Bar-Kays, "My Sweet Lord" by John Gary Williams, and "Lady Madonna" by Booker T & The MGs.

VariousSweet House Chicago – A Mickey Oliver Production ... CD
M Records/Still Music, 1986. New Copy ... $12.99
A classic compilation from the Chicago scene – one that stood as one of the key full-length releases of house music that was bubbling under in the Windy City – important at the time, as most other albums of house music were from overseas labels issuing Chicago recordings! As you'd guess from the title, Mickey Oliver's at the helm throughout – producing the work with a nicely soulful quality – one that takes things a bit past some of the starker, colder modes that sometimes showed up on Trax Records – and which really illustrates that great second chapter as Chicago house was maturing a bit. The beats are nice and crispy throughout, the keyboards get cool and moody – and titles include "I Can't Stop For You" by Pierre's Fantasy Club, "Take It To The Top" by Joe Magic, "House Rights" by Phortune, "Suavesito" by Ralphi Rosario, "I Want Your Love" by Jamie, "Lost Me Boy" by Mickey Oliver with Dari Mor, and "Anticipate" and "I Need A Beat" by Mickey Oliver. CD featuers bonus tracks – "Anticipate (12" rmx)" by Mickey Oliver and "I Need A Beat (12" mix)" by Ralph Rosario. CD

✨✧ VariousSweetest Tabu – Ballads & Slow Jams Collection ... CD
Tabu/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great mellow soul from the legendary Tabu Records label – home to a fair bit of groovers back in the day, including important work from Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis – but an imprint that was also great with a ballad or love song too! The range of work here illustrates the shifting sound of the soul ballad through the 80s – a move from some of the more fragile or overwrought modes of the decade before, into mature, sophisticated territory that sometimes drew a lot from the Quiet Storm generation. The set features 15 great mellow jams – including "If You Were Here Tonight" by Alexander O'Neal, "Tell Me If You Still Care" by SOS Band, "Saying It With Music" by Michael Boothman, "All For You" by Anacostia, "Can We Do It Again" by James Robinson, "Stay" by Art Wilson, "Misty Eyes" by Woods Empire, "Hey Girl (7" version)" by Lamont Johnson, and "Nothing Else Means More To Me Than Our Love" by Sharon Ridley.

VariousWattstax – The Living Word ... CD
Stax, 1972. Used 2 CDs ... $4.99
A landmark double-live album that was easily one of the most important soul record moments of the 70s! The concert was an all-star event held in LA to celebrate the anniversary of the Watts riots – but it features a killer lineup of talent from the roster of Stax Records – by then a proud independent with more than enough power to spread a nationwide message from Memphis to Los Angeles without any trouble! The record is nicely segmented – so that it offers up mini "sets" by each artist – really recreating the feel of the event, at a level that lived on in countless living rooms long after the concert was over. Titles include "Son Of Shaft/Feel It" and "I Can't Turn You Loose" by The Bar-Kays; "Ain't No Sunshine" by Isaac Hayes, "I Don't Know What This World Is Coming To" and "Hearsay" by The Soul Children, "I Like What You're Doing To Me" and "Gee Whiz" by Carla Thomas; "The Breakdown" and "Do The Funky Penguin" by Rufus Thomas, "Killing Floor" and "Angel Of Mercy" by Albert King"; "Respect Yourself" and "I'll Take You There" by The Staple Singers; and "Knock On Wood" by Eddie Floyd. Also includes 2 studio tracks recorded after the show – "Oh La De Da" by The Staple Singers, and "Lay Your Loving On Me" by Eddie Floyd. CD

✨✧ VariousWelcome To Paradise – Italian Dream House 1989 to 1993 Vol 2 ... LP
Safe Trip (Netherlands), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A much-needed look at this sometimes-missed chapter in Italian music – a moment when the Italo Club sound of the 80s had transformed into a scene that gave us some of the cleanest, leanest house music of the time! Earlier Italian imports had a big impact on the birth of house music in Chicago – and a few years later, those forward-thinking sounds were used to bring a needed revamp to Italian club as well – as you'll hear in these wonderfully-executed cuts that often have the best spare sounds of the US underground, mixed with some classic elements that warm things up in a mighty nice way! Both volumes are filled with well-chosen cuts that never got the kind of attention they should have at the time – and titles on this second part include "Welcome To Paradise (nightfly version)" by Z99, "Trasparenza" by Extreme, "Il Sole (deep mix)" by Q Base, "Dreams (club)" by The Sky, "Elements" by Leo Anibaldi, "Somnambulism" by Morenas, "Emotions" by 707 Boys, "A Key To Heaven For A Heavenly Trance" by Sasha, and "Octivation" by Transitive Elements.

✨✧ VariousWindy City Soul – Smooth 70s Soul From Chicago ... CD
Back Beat (UK), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful soul from the Chicago scene of the 70s – some great lesser-known gems by some of the biggest artists to bubble up on the Windy City scene of the 60s, represented here by some beautifully mature work! Most of the cuts on the set are from the later Chi-Soul label, run by the mighty Carl Davis – but there's also a handful from earlier years on Brunswick, that important imprint in shaping the sound of Chicago in the late 60s and early 70s. The set list is a great mix of obscure numbers and a few better-known cuts – and titles include "I Love You" by Otis Leavill, "What Goes Up" by Tyrone Davis, "Windy City Theme" by Windy City Orchestra, "Love Uprising" by Mr T, "Honey Babe" by Ginji James, "Fool Or Your Man" by Windy City, "Does She Have A Friend For Me" by Gene Chandler, "Once You Fall In Love" by Eddie McLoyd, "It Only Happens" by Jackie Wilson, "I Did It" by Barbara Acklin, "Stop I Don't Need No Sympathy" by Lyn Roman, "This Love Is Real" by The Promises, "All I Want To Do" by The Impressions, "You Don't Have To Go" by The Chi-Lites, "I'll Be Right Here" by Mighty Doug Haines, and "Sweeter As The Days Go By" by Major Lance.
