✨✧ Barbara Lewis/Carla ThomasStars/I Play For Keeps ... 7-inch
Kent (UK), 1969/1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great obscure track from Barbara Lewis – recorded in her overlooked years after Atlantic Records – and with a sophisticated blend of vocals and groove that almost feels like Marlena Shaw! Carla Thomas served up "I Play For Keeps" on the flipside – a tune with a nice two-step groove, and a vibe that's a bit different than her usual Memphis soul! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Webster LewisTouch My Love ... LP
Epic, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic StarrAll In The Name Of Love ... LP
Warner, 1986. Very Good ... $0.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

Neal HeftiOh Dad Poor Dad – Mama's Hung You In The Closet/Boeing Boeing ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1966/1967. New Copy ... $11.99
A pair of swinging RCA soundtracks from Neal Hefti – back to back on a single CD! Oh Dad Poor Dad is great grooviness from Neal Hefti – working here at the height of his 60s powers! The film stars Robert Morse, Barbara Harris, and Jonathan Winters – and the score's got a 60s screwball approach that mixes organ, woodwinds, percussion, and bits of strings together, all filtered through Hefti's rich style of arrangement. The overall feel is great – with loads of mod mod numbers, dancing around with wonderful rhythms that fall somewhere between bossa and beat. Ttiles include "Boy Girl Calypso", "Into The Sunset", "Spooky Coffins", "Oh Dad Calypso", "The Revolt of Johnathan Rosepettie III", and "Home Movies". Boeing Boeing is a weird comedy directed by John Rich, and starring the unlikely team of Jerry Lewis and Tony Curtis – plus some hotties as stewardesses! The best part, most likely, is this fab soundtrack by Neal Hefti – which has many great touches that result in some extremely groovy material! There's some especially nice numbers on the set that mix organ and guitar with larger backing, creating a sound that's much more like late 60s work by Piero Piccioni than Hefti's usual style. A few tunes are more serious, but overall, the soundtrack's a nice one – and is also graced by an excellent cover that sums up the goofy film with a nice cartoony image. Titles include "More Blues For Bertha", "Senor Boeing", "English Breakfast", "Frenchie", "Girl Chasin", and "Champagne Promises". CD

✨✧ David Murray OctetHome ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1982. Near Mint- ... $8.99
A great leap forward for David Murray – an album recorded at the start of the 80s, and one that showed he really had some great new directions going on in his music! The album's got all the warm tones and complicated sentiments you might expect from a title like "Home" – brilliantly put together not only as a showcase for Murray's writing, but also for his arranging style as well – a key octet recording that shows Murray's talents as a leader as great as his role as a player. David plays tenor and bass clarinet – and other players include Henry Threadgill on alto and flute, Olu Dara on trumpet, Butch Morris on cornet, George Lewis on trombone, Anthony Davis on piano, Wilber Morris on bass, and Steve McCall on percussion. Titles include "Home", "Santa Barbara & Crenshaw Follies", "3D Family", "Choctaw Blues", and "Last of the Hipmen". LP, Vinyl record album
(In beautiful shape!)

VariousLadies Of Detroit Sound Vol 1 ... CD
Bar, 1960s. Used ... $4.99
26 rare Detroit soul singles – all cut by the many lovelies who recorded in the city, but never got as big as some of the huge stars on the Motown label. That's a-ok with us, though, because these gals have a raw, honest quality that's really refreshing – and finding this set is like unlocking a treasure trove of a lost soul tradition. Titles include "Midnight Johnny" by Liz Lands, "Goodbye Cruel World" by Linda Griner, "Lonely Lonely Girl Am I" by The Velvettes, "You're Gonna Love My Baby" by Barbara McNair, "I Got A Feeling" by Barbara Randolph, "Baby Boy" by Juanita Williams, "Sweetheart Darling" by Rose Batiste, "I'm Spellbound" by Tamiko Jones, "Keep On Lovin Me" by Frances Nero, and "You Need Me" by The Lewis Sisters. CD
(Note: CD appears to have been mastered from vinyl sources – and although printed professionally, it's a bit low-budget in terms of the packaging. CD may not play well on all players.)

✨✧ Carrie LucasHello Stranger/Summer In The Street ... 12-inch
Constellation, 1985. Used ... Out Of Stock
A sweetly stepping remake of the Barbara Lewis classic "Hello Stranger" – done here by Carrie Lucas with a nicely subdued groove! The track bubbles and steps along with a nicely slow pace to fit the original lyrics – and there's a few nice modern touches on beats and keyboards. Those elements come into much stronger play on "Summer In The Street" – a sweet bit of electro pop with a very upbeat feel! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ CapitolsCool Jerk/Hello Stranger ... 7-inch
Karen, Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
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
(Blue label pressing with horizontal lines. Label has some marker.)
