✨✧ Voices Of East HarlemBrothers & Sisters (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Elektra/Big Pink (Japan), 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
A rare nugget from the Voices Of East Harlem – an obscure second album of material for Elektra Records, issued after their debut on the label – but only as an overseas release! The album follows strongly in the righteous blend of gospel and soul on Right On Be Free – and the set seems to feature material that may well have been recorded at those sessions, plus some other unreleased tracks too – all pulled together in a style that could have made these guys as big as The Staple Singers on Stax! There's actually a deeper vibe here – and a sound that's even deeper than on their two later albums for the Just Sunshine label – as the group take on work by some rock acts, like Bob Dylan or Creedence Clearwater Revival – and mix the music with their own soulful music to create something really amazing. Titles include "Nation Time", "Oxford Town", "Sit Yourself Down", "No No No", "Hey Brother", "I Want To Be Free", "Proud Mary", "Freedom", and "Kind Woman". CD
(Includes obi! Barcode has a promo sticker.)

East CoastEast Coast (Encounter) ... LP
Encounter, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Righteous soul – and the only record ever cut by East Coast – a group led by Larry Blackmon, featuring early vocals by Gwen Guthrie! The style is very hip – a mixture of funk and progressive grooving, all held together with a sound that's young, proud, and which moves easily between influences from a number of different camps. In a way, the group's almost a cross between early Earth Wind & Fire and The Voices Of East Harlem – with a style that's got some nicely soulful jazz elements, but served up with a dose of sweeter soul. Gregory Johnson plays some great keyboards on the set, and titles include "I've Got To Reclaim You", "Something Deep Inside", "Any Thing You Have In Mind", "Miss Gigi", "Keep On Trying", "I Found You", and "You Can't Let It Get You Down". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Alice ClarkComplete Studio Recordings (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mainstream/BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $18.99
The great self-titled Alice Clark LP on Mainstream plus earlier singles for Warner Brothers and unreleased tracks – the complete studio recordings from '68-72 – in one great set! There weren't many vocal albums on the Mainstream label during the early 70s, and this rare soul side is a real overlooked gem! Alice Clark has a rich soulful voice, with a style that sounds a bit like Esther Marrow, mixed with some of the lead vocalists in Voices Of East Harlem – a really right-on sort of sound that's totally great, and way hipper than most 70s chart soul! Arrangements are by Ernie Wilkins, who brings in a touch of jazz – but again, with a much hipper feel than most of his other backings – and most of the tracks are quite obscure, well-written tunes – of the sort of material you might expect to hear sung by Gil Scott-Heron or Donny Hathaway. Includes "Don't You Care", "Charms Of The Arms Of Love", "Maybe This Time", "Looking At Life", "Hey Girl", "Don't Wonder Why", "It Takes Too Long To Learn To Live Alone", "Hard Hard Promises" and the rest from the classic and always sought self-titled album from 1972 – plus great earlier Warner Brothers singles "You Hit Me (Right Where It Hurts Me)" and "Heaven's Will (Must Be Obeyed)" from 1969, and the previously unreleased "Before Her Time".

King James VersionFirst Time We Met (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Peacock/Universal (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $19.99
A gospel album at heart, but one that comes across with the sound of some of the hippest soul of the early 70s – very much in the same righteous style as the classic albums by Voices Of East Harlem! Like that group, these guys are clearly trained by the church, but open enough to reach out with lots of secular modes, too – a soaring, soulful vibe that's often got a nice current of funk at the bottom, and a wickedly warm blending of the voices in the group – which include lead male singer Charles Green, and female singers Bernadine Smith, Vicki Trent, and Elaine Joe. Production is by Lee Young – much more classic 70s mellow soul than the usual gospel set of the period – and titles include "I'll Still Love You", "Meeting Up Yonder", "What Then", "My Life Is Getting Sweeter", "The First Time We Met", and "Won't Have Time To Worry". CD
