✨✧ Barbara LewisComplete Atlantic Singles ... CD
Atlantic/Real Gone, Mid 60s. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
The best-ever collection of work we've ever seen from Barbara Lewis – and the first set to really give the soul singer her due! Lewis was a hell of a vocalist back in the 60s – an artist who could be classy one minute, and gutsy the next – often working with key production from the great Ollie McLaughlin – a Detroit talent from the time, and one who crafted a really unique groove with Barbara! The result is a batch of tracks that go way beyond familiar 60s soul – and way beyond Barbara's better-known hits too – a wealth of under-discovered tunes that really shows a lot of development, especially as the 60s move on. There's loads of tracks on here we've not heard in years – and titles include "Fool Fool Fool", "On Bended Knees", "You're A Dream Maker", "I'm All You've Got", "I'll Keep Believing", "Don't Forget About Me", "It's Magic", "Make Me Belong To You", "I Remember The Feeling", "I'll Make Him Love Me", "Sho Nuff", "Make Me Your Baby", "Love To Be Loved", "Think A Little Sugar", "My Mama Told Me", "Snap Your Fingers", "Pushin A Good Thing Too Far", "Come Home", "Baby I'm Yours", and "I Say Love".

Lewis ConnectionLewis Connection ... LP
Numero, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 15.98
Rare funk from the same Minneapolis scene that gave the world Prince – a legendary indie set from the end of the 70s, put together by Lewis brothers Pierre and Andre! Despite their French names, the duo have a mighty American groove on the set – a wicked approach to funk that's very much in the best ensemble mode of the period – but leaner too, given the smaller lineup, and relatively sparse production – which makes most of the record bristle like some rare boogie 45! Vocals are by the brothers, plus female singer Barbara Bolar, and later Prince-mate Sonny Thompson – and Prince himself even adds in some slight magic to one cut on the set. Titles include "Dynamic Duo", "Got To Be Something", "Get Up", "Higher", "Feel Good To Ya", and "Mr G". (And for the record, the group's name on the cover was originally the Lewis Conection – but our spell checker has the title listed with the regular spelling!) LP, Vinyl record album

Varese, 1960s. Used ... $9.99
Some of the sweetest sounds of the 60s – a treasure trove of 25 girl group classics! This extremely well-chosen set is great in that it not only includes work by some of the biggest and best acts of the time, but also in that it blends together trio tunes with tracks by single artists, but which still follow very much in the style and approach of the classic group sound. Includes important work produced by Barry White, Juggy Murray, Van McCoy, Phil Spector, Kim Fowley, and other heroes of ours – with tracks that include "Til" by The Angels, "Bobby's Girl" by Marcie Blaine, "Laugh Or Cry" by Yvonne Carroll, "I Wanna Love Him So Bad" by The Jelly Beans, "It May Be Winter Outside" by Felice Taylor, "Hello Stranger" by Barbara Lewis, "Give Him A Great Big Kiss" by the Shangri Las, "Right On The Tip Of My Tongue" by Brenda & The Tabulations, "You'll Lose A Good Thing" by Barbara Lynn, "Jimmy Kiss & Run" by Diane Maxwell, "I Love How You Love Me" by The Paris Sisters, "People Say" by The Dixie Cups, "I Know (You Don't Love Me No More)" by Barbara George, "Yes I'm Ready" by Barbara Mason, and "A Thousand Stars" by Kathy Young & The Innocents.

✨✧ Atlantic StarrAll In The Name Of Love ... LP
Warner, 1986. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Nelson Riddle/Jeannie C RileyHarper Valley PTA ... LP
Plantation, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty weird one – the soundtrack to the 1978 film that starred Barbara Eden, based on Jeannie C Riley's late 60s pop hit "Harper Valley PTA". Jeannie sings that song at the start of the set, and Nelson Riddle contributes a number of dreamy and disco-tinged instrumentals to give the set more of a 70s feel. A few other tracks have vocals too – like "Mr Harper" by Barbara Eden, "Ballad Of A Teenage Queen" by Johnny Cash, and "High School Confidential" by Jerry Lee Lewis – but the instrumentals are the most interesting. Titles include "Twin Tune", "Ice Cream Disco", "Dee's Visit", and "Alice's Place". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Young Holt TrioWack Wack – The Best Of Young Holt ... CD
Brunswick/Edsel (UK), Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic work from one of the funkiest rhythm sections ever – the team of bassist Eldee Young and drummer Isaac Redd Holt! Young and Holt first came to fame working with Ramsey Lewis on a string of classic Chicago soul jazz outings for Chess – but by the mid 60s, the duo took off on their own, and moved over to Brunswick Records to cut a fantastic run of soul instrumental albums that rivaled Ramsey's own work at the time! Working with a variety of different piano players, as well as larger soul-based orchestrations, the pair cut a great sound for themselves – a groove that mixed up jazz and soul, and which was surprisingly popular with the record buyers at the time. Think of this as an instrumental take on the same sound that Brunswick was cooking up with The Chi-Lites, Barbara Acklin, and others – but also imagine that groove expanded out with just a touch of jazz as well. CD features 21 tracks in all – and is easily the greatest "best of" we've seen of the Young Holt years on Brunswick. Titles include "Dig Her Walk", "Orient", "The Look Of Love", "Strangers In The Night", "California Montage", "Young & Holtful", "Soulful Strut", "Yon Gimme Thum", "Light My Fire", "Just Ain't No Love", and "Baby Your Light Is Out".

✨✧ Doris TroyDoris Troy Sings Just One Look & Other Memorable Songs ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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". CD
