Wonderful stuff from Barbara – working here in a mixture of sophisticated soul and uptown production, still touched with the right amount of honesty and emotion, thanks to excellent guidance from producer Ollie McLaughlin!

Nearly every track's a winner, and this comp of Barbara's best 60's stuff includes lots of classics like "Baby, I'm Yours", "Hello Stranger", "Stop That Girl", "Come Home", "It's Magic", and more!

✨✧ Barbara LewisSnap Your Fingers – Barbara Lewis Sings The Great Soul Tunes ... LP
Atlantic, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brilliant early work from Barbara – and a lot more soulful than some of her later stuff! The sound is more bluesy than usual, and Barbara's singing in a style that reminds us of Etta James or Ruth Brown – with R&B arrangements that have a bit of jazz, and a touch of class. Most of the cuts on the LP are songs by other artists – but the set holds together nicely thanks to Barbara's presentation, and some great production by Detroit soul genius Ollie McLaughlin. Titles include "Snap Your Fingers", "I Don't Want To Cry", "It's Just A Matter Of Time", "Turn On Your Love Light", and "Baby, Workout". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Barbara LewisHello Stranger – 16 Smooth Sides By Detroit's Soulful Songstress ... LP
Solid Smoke, Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Easily the best vinyl collection we've ever seen of Barbara's 60s work – one of the excellent titles on the Solid Smoke label, and a set that presents the material with great notes on the sessions that really help illuminate the tunes! The tunes were all produced by Detroit great Ollie McLaughlin – and some sessions feature The Dells backing Barbara up – in that sweetly-crafted style that made her 60s work a unique bridge between soul music and more sophisticated vocals! Titles include "Make Me Your Baby", "Sho Nuff", "Baby I'm Yours", "My Mama Told Me", "Pushing A Good Thing", "Hello Stranger", "Please Please Please", "Does Anyone Want A Lover", "Make Me Belong To You", and "Someday We're Gonna Love Again".

✨✧ Barbara LewisHello Stranger – And 11 Other Great Selections ... LP
Atlantic, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
Early work from the great Barbara Lewis – a sublime little set that took soul music to a whole new level! The record has a wonderful approach that mixes older ballad modes with some of the more mellow, more compressed styles that were showing up in the more sophisticated soul of the time – particularly that of some of the male singers from Chicago. Credit here is especially due to genius Detroit producer Ollie McLaughlin, but arranger Riley Hampton also contributes plenty too – mixing strings with subtler jazzier influences – similar to some of his work with Lorez Alexandria or Walter Jackson, although maybe with a bit more of a pop flourish. Perhaps even more compelling, though, is the fact that all the titles on the albums are originals written by Barbara Lewis herself – with titles that include "Hello Stranger", "Bended Knees", "Puppy Love", "My Heart Went Do Dat Da", "Would You Love Me", and "Loneliest Night Of The Year".

✨✧ Barbara LewisWorkin' On A Groovy Thing ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
A record that was issued quite a few years after Barbara Lewis' debut for Atlantic, but a set that's equally great – thanks to some impeccable production from the great Ollie McLaughlin! The set's got a sound that's a bit more upbeat and soaring than some of Lewis' earlier work – a groove that's clearly picked up the Detroit styles of the late 60s, but which still retains all the careful classic that Barbara brought to her music. Titles include "Workin On A Groovy Thing", "I Remember The Feeling", "I'll Make Him Love Me", "Thankful", "Make Me Belong To You", "Sho-Nuff", "I'll Keep Believin'", and "Make Me Your Baby". Very sweet, very soulful, and an essential piece of 60's soul. LP, Vinyl record album

Webster LewisTouch My Love ... LP
Epic, 1978. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Webster Lewis takes off wonderfully here – finding a completely unique groove that's equal parts club, soul, and fusion! The album's almost as sublime as Roy Ayers' best from the time – and has a similar balance that's perfectly done – a depth of thought that goes way beyond conventional club, and a willingness to bring in lots more complicated elements from various jazz sources. Webster's keyboards are nicely out front in the set – and there's some great vocals by a female chorus who sweeten up the sound nicely, but not in ways that are too commercial or cliched. The whole thing's great – a righteous masterpiece through and through – and tracks include "Hideaway", "There's A Happy Feeling", "Touch My Love", "Believe In Yourself", "Barbara Ann", and "Loving".

✨✧ VariousStax Vinyl 7s Box (10 x 7 inch singles) ... 7-inch
Stax, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 10 x 7 inch set ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic sounds from the legendary Stax Records – that mighty Memphis powerhouse of soul! This very cool box is limited and numbered – and features a superb selection of second-chapter material from the label – tracks from the post-1968 time when Atlantic took away all the early hits – which maybe left Stax in a position to be even more creative and experimental than ever before! None of these titles are too-played tracks – and instead, the set brings together a nice mix of deep soul, Northern grooves, and even a bit of funk – with tracks that include "Hey You Don't Fight It" by The Montclairs, "The Stars" by Barbara Lewis, "The Whole Damn World Is Going Crazy" by John Gary Williams, "Why Must Our Eyes Always Be Turned Backwards" by Lou Bond, "Special Kind Of Woman" by Paul Thompson, "You're My Only Temptation" by Roz Ryan, "Let Hurt Put You In The Loser's Seat" by Joni Wilson, "Can You Win" by Charlene & The Soul Serenaders, "Friday Night" by Johnnie Taylor, "Happy" by William Bell, "One More Chance" by Margie Joseph, "I'll Never Stop Loving You" by Carla Thomas, "Sweet Sherry" by JJ Barnes, and "I'm The One Who Loves You" by Darrell Banks. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Atlantic StarrAll In The Name Of Love ... CD
Warner, 1986. Used ... $4.99
A mid 80s classic from Atlantic Starr – at the height of their catchy commercial fame – bouncing along with rhythms that crossover nicely to the mainstream, yet still keep a bit of their previous funky edge intact! The groove here is almost in the style that Atlantic Starr inspired in so many other younger groups in the earlier part of the 80s – although it's also a bit more polished too. Most instrumentation is electric, and tunes are mostly written by the team of David and Wayne Lewis – both of whom sing on the record. Barbara Weathers also handles female vocals, and titles include "Once Lover At A Time", "Let The Sun In", "My Mistake", "I'm In Love", "Always", "Don't Take Me For Granted", and a version of Sam Dees' "All In The Name Of Love".

CapitolsCool Jerk/Hello Stranger ... 7-inch
Karen, Mid 60s. Good ... $4.99
One of the hardest soul hits of the 60s! The cut's got a rolling piano and bass groove that's simply sublime – made even better because the horns didn't show up for the session, so the vocals and piano carry all the grooves, making the track work harder than most of its contemporaries from the time! "Hello Stranger" is the group's version of Barbara Lewis' hit – originally produced by Ollie McLaughlin, who's working with the boys here, and done in a very different style than Barbara's version! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Doris TroyDoris Troy Sings Just One Look & Other Memorable Songs ... LP
Atlantic, 1963. Good+ ... $19.99
A landmark early moment from Doris Troy – a set that has her shining not just as a key 60s soul singer for Atlantic Records – but also as a heck of a great songwriter too! She's got a really fresh approach here – one that's right up front for the time – with a mix of raw vocals and classy production, in a style that's partly New York uptown – but which also has the kind of strongly individual vibe you'd get from singers like Maxine Brown or Barbara Lewis too! Arrangements on the record are by Gregory Carroll, who also wrote the bulk of the material with Doris – including tracks like "Lazy Days", "Bossa Nova Blues", "Whatcha Gonna Do About It", "Time", and "Just One Look". Other tracks include "Stormy Weather", "School For Fools", and "Somewhere Along The Way". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousBaby I've Got It – More Motown Girls – More Rare Treats From Motown's Female Roster, Including 16 Previously Unissued Gems ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.98
A stunning selection of female soul from Motown – all of it rare, and much of it previously unreleased! The set is a great reminder not only of how much we still have to learn about the biggest soul label in the motor city – but also of the exceptional quality that Motown brought to their recordings – so much so that even long-unissued tracks like these can easily stand with the biggest hits from other 60s soul labels! The package is wonderful if you dig female soul – and maybe even if you just like vintage soul in general – and in addition to rare cuts by big Motown names, you'll also hear some lesser-knowns that show the way the company was always trying to reach out for new talent in the fertile world of Detroit music. As usual, Ace has provided very detailed notes that offer as much history as information on the music – and the CD features 24 titles that include "It's Been A Long Time Happenin" by Rita Wright, "There Are Things" by Ann Bogan, "It's Crazy Baby" by Liz Lands, "Baby I've Got It" by Brenda Holloway, "Honey Don't Leave Me" by The Lewis Sisters, "It's All Right" by LaBrenda Ben, "When Someone's Good To You" by Oma Page, "In My Heart I Know It's Right" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Sweet Talkin Guy" by The Marvelettes, "Cookie Boy" by Thelma Brown, "I Up & Think Of You" by Kim Weston, "There Was" by The Lollipops, "Keep Away" by Little Lisa, "Playboy (first version)" by The Marvelettes, "I Know You Don't Love Me No More (orig mix)" by Yvonne Fair, "In Your Heart" by Patrice Holloway, "You've Got Possibilities" by Barbara McNair, and "Bad News" by LaBrenda Ben.

VariousBirth Of Soul – Special Detroit Edition 1961 to 1964 ... CD
Kent (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
The Detroit soul scene at the start of the 60s – music from a time before Motown was dominating the city's reputation, and a whole host of other great labels brought the motor city sound to the masses! The work here is quite a surprise if you're only thinking in terms of Northern Soul and some of the more uptempo Detroit groovers – as the work here burns on so many different levels – often with a style that reflects some of the nascent soul coming out of Chicago on labels like Chess and Vee Jay, the latter of whom is featured here amidst a range of other imprints that include Wand, Atlantic, Scepter, Time, Old Town, and Brent – all of whom released some of these early Detroit soul tracks as singles back in the day. In true Ace/Kent fashion, the set also features a few unreleased gems, plus a wonderful set of notes on the city's soul scene – alongside tracks that include "Nosey Folk" by The Del-Phis, "Answer Me" by Vivian Collins, "Can't We Get Together" by Harry Reid, "Here I Am" by Betty Lavette, "Shakin Fit" by The Pyramids, "That's No Way To Spend My Time" by The Pen Ettes, "Wedding Bells" by Melvin Davis, "You Lied" by Marva Josie, "Think A Little Sugar" by Barbara Lewis, "Just One More Time" by JJ Barnes, "My Letter" by Priscilla Page, "I Know How It Feels" by Laura Johnson, "I'm A Lonely Guy" by Timmy Shaw & The Sternphones, "Come Back To Me" by La Wanda William, "I Cried For My Last Time" by The Sonnettes, and "Tears Running & Falling From My Eyes" by James Lately.

An excellent compilation – one that's still a key part of our collection, and a sampler of 60s Detroit soul produced by the fantastic Ollie McLaughlin, and released as singles under a variety of labels, including Moira, Karen and Carla. This set does a great job of showcasing the excellent rhythm and blues that was getting released by artists outside Berry Gordy's stable, 15 numbers in all, including "Hello Stranger" by Barbara Lewis, "My Magic Corner", "That's When I'll Stop Loving You" and "You Do Your Thing" by Belita Woods, "Buy Now & Pay Later" by the Firestones, "Ooh Baby" and "Love Makes The World Go 'Round" by Deon Jackson, "Hey Love" by Betty Lavette, "The Reason Why" by the Four Pros, "Take A Little Time To Tell Her" and "If I Only Knew" by Jimmy Soul Clark, and "Why Can't It Be" by the Compacts.

✨✧ Various500 Atlantic R&B & Soul Singles Vol 1 – 1964/1965 ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Think you know the sound of Atlantic Records in the 60s? Think again – because this stunning series opens the vault to a huge amount of rare treasures from the legendary label! The package is amazing – and offers up rare tracks that were mostly only issued by Atlantic on singles – including some on the other imprints associated with the company – some by names we never even knew recorded for the label, others by bigger names, but represented here by obscure material that goes way past their hits – and which is ultra cool because of that. There's also a fair bit more deep soul than you might expect from the usual Atlantic mix – tremendous vocals, and often in less hit-heavy modes – which makes the whole thing a great revelation – and just one more reason to bow down and give even more expect to one of the key companies who helped soul music find a home in the 60s. Plus – as if that's not enough – the whole thing comes in a very cool 7" gatefold package – which emphasizes the from-singles nature of the collection. First volume features 50 great tracks that include "Baby Girl (part 1)" by Titus Turner, "Please Don't Leave Me" by The Drapels, "That's The Way That It Goes" by Bobby Marchan, "Mary Lou You Can Do The Bumble Bee" by Deanie Parker, "Gotta Find A Way" by Theresa Lindsay, "One More Chance" by Doris Troy, "Daddy Woo Woo" by The Vibrations, "Slumber Party" by The Van Dells, "Someday We're Gonna Love Again" by Barbara Lewis, "Reconsider Baby" by Al King, "Shake Up" by The Cobras, "Uh Oh I'm In Love Again" by Eddie Jefferson, "That's When It Hurts" by Ben E King, "Don't Make Something Out Of Nothing" by William Bell, "You Never Know How Much I Love You" by Oscar Mack, "Closer To My Baby" by Dorothy Williams, "The Last Girl" by The Isley Brothers, "Don't Leave Me" by The Crume Brothers, "Bashful Guitar" by Johnny Jenkins, "Take The Boy Out Of The Country" by Linda Jones, "I'm Gonna Run Away From You" by Tami Lynn, "Wild One" by The Coasters, "Yes I Do" by Solomon Burke, "Something In My Eye" by Music City Soul Brothers, "Young Man" by The Drapels, "Watchdog" by Dorothy Williams, "Romance In The Dark" by Jimmy Ricks, "Please Be Honest With Me" by Barbara & The Browns, "I'm Taking Back My Love" by Linda Jones, "Young & Foolish" by Wendy Rene, "My Girl Sloopy" by The Vibrations, "I Want To Get Married" by Rufus Thomas, "I Left There Running Because Walking Was Much Too Slow" by Chuck Bradford, and "Big Party" by Barbara & The Browns.
