Roscoe Lee BrowneHand Is On The Gate ... LP
Verve, 1966. Sealed 2LP ... $5.99
Pretty interesting stuff – almost a who's who of African American socially conscious singing actors in the early 60s – with a cast that includes James Earl Jones, Moses Gunn, Leon Bibb, Josephine Premice, Cicely Tyson, and Roscoe Lee Browne, who also arranged and directed the whole affair. Even cooler is the fact that the music was written by Bill Lee and the great Stuart Scharf – and played by the pair with help from Seldon Powell on flute and Floyd Williams on percussion. The performance is part musical, part spoken – a string of passages from writers that include Richard Wright, Langston Hughes, Gwendolyn Brooks, WC Handy, Julian Bond, Le Roi Jones, and others – working together beautifully in a very righteous, slightly radical theater piece.

✨✧ Donna Summer & OthersThank God It's Friday – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Columbia, 1978. Very Good+ 2LP + 12" ... $4.99
A huge disco cash-in moment of the 70s – but a great one too, and a strong illustration of the power that Casablanca Records had in both the clubs and charts at the time! The movie and record were both a bit over-pressed upon release, but they nonetheless stand as a great snapshot of the way that funky soul had taken over the clubs during the disco generation – giving showcase to a whole host of new young artists, and exposing lots of mainstream listeners to soul music at a level they wouldn't have touched a few years before! Donna Summer was one of Casablanca's big acts at the time – and she really dominates the record with her classic rendition of "Last Dance", plus tracks "With Your Love" and a disco remake of "Je T'Aime Moi Non Plus". Both other cuts are strong too – and include "Lovin, Livin, & Givin" by Diana Ross, "Too Hot Ta Trot" by The Commodores, "Disco Queen" by Paul Jabara, "Leatherman's Theme" by Wright Bros Flying Machine, "Floyd's Theme" by Natural Juices, and "Find My Way" by Cameo.
