✨✧ Atlantic StarrAll In The Name Of Love ... LP
Warner, 1986. Sealed ... $3.99
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".

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

Doris TroyDoris Troy Sings Just One Look & Other Memorable Songs ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1963. New Copy ... $9.99
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". CD

VariousAtlantic Unearthed – Soul Sisters (rare & previously unissued tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $5.99
Sublime soul work from the glory days of Atlantic Records – and most of it unfamiliar too! As with the male volume in this great Unearthed series, this female volume is filled with amazing rarities from Atlantic – 5 previously unreleased tunes by some of the label's best female singers, plus another 11 tracks that show that even when they were topping the charts, Atlantic was still dedicated to putting out some great deep soul singles! Compiler David Nathan really did his homework here – not only picking out choice singles and b-sides for the compilation, but also digging up the rare unissued tunes that totally make the set worthwhile, even if you think you've got it all in your record collection! Titles include the previously unissued tracks "I Ain't That Easy To Lose" by Betty Swann, "Rescue Me" by Dee Dee Warwick, "It's Growing" by Margie Joseph, "Count The Days" by Patti Labelle & The Bluebells, and "Ain't Nothing Gonna Change Me" by The Sweet Inspirations – plus the titles "Thankful For What I Got" by Barbara Lewis, "It Ain't Who You Know" by Jackie Moore, "Full Time Woman" by Irma Thomas, "I Got To Love Sombody's Baby" by Judy Clay, "What A Man" by Laura Lee, "My Way" by Aretha Franklin, and "Please Little Angel" by Doris Troy.

VariousHoney & Wine – Another Gerry Goffin & Carole King Song Collection ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. Used ... $9.99
Sublime sounds from the songwriting team of Gerry Goffin and Carole King – a tremendous little package that features some of their biggest hit singles, and a fair bit of unusual work as well! The package is the second set from Ace to feature the Goffin/King magic – and it's proof that the pair had plenty of greatness to offer back in the 60s – a never-ending flow of wonderful music, recorded here by an array of soul, rock, and pop artists of the time. The songs originally appeared on a variety of different labels, but have been collected together here – presented with tune-by-tune notes that not only tell the story of the songs, but the particular recordings as well. Titles include "A Long Way To Be Happy" by Carolyn Daye, "Honey & Wine" by The Hollies, "I Happen To Love You" by The Myddle Class, "So Goes Love" by The Turtles, "No Easy Way Down" by Nancy Wilson, "Oh No Not My Baby" by Maxine Brown, "Go Away Little Girl" by Bobby Vee, "Brand New World" by Bobby Scott, "Not Just Tomorrow But Always" by Bertell Dache, "Tell Daddy" by Ben E King, "I Need You" by Chuck Jackson, "Stage Door" by Peter James, "He Hit Me & It Felt Like A Kiss" by Jody Miller, "Don't Forget About Me" by Barbara Lewis, "Take A Giant Step" by The Rising Sons, and "Is This What I Get For Loving You" by Marianne Faithful.

VariousMasters At Work 10th Anniversary Collection Part 1: 1990 to 1995 (Definitive Remixes & Original Productions) ... CD
BBE (UK), Early/Mid 90s. Used 4CDs ... $18.99
A fantastic tribute to one of the greatest production teams of the 90s! Kenny Dope and Little Louis Vega – working together as Masters At Work – are perhaps the most influential team to hit soul music since Gamble & Huff or Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis. They bring a huge amount of underground dancefloor influences to the mix – from house, to Latin, to funk, to hip hop, to classic club – and they handle all styles equally well, with none of the bullshit crossover weak-ass sounds that you'll hear from other fake-heavy producers. This set features a huuuuuuge amount of work by the team, and it's only part 1 of a 2-part masterworks collection on BBE that celebrates the 10th anniversary of Kenny & Louie's partnership! This CD version is packaged in a very nice little box, and includes 4 CDs worth of material – broken into the themes "vocals", "dubs and MAW vocals", "beats & loops", and "tools & grooves". The selection of tracks is excellent, and there's so much stuff in here, you may as well open up your own club! Titles include "Love & Happiness" by River Ocean with India, "Carry On" by Martha Wash, "Voices In My Mind" by Voices, "Ride On The Rhythm" by Marc Anthony, "Beautiful People" by Barbara Tucker, "Para Los Rumberos" by Tito Puente, "Set Your Lovin Free" by Lisa Stansfield, "Getting It Right" by Allison Limerick, "When You Touch Me" by MAW & India, "Moonshine" by Kenlou, "Souffles H" by Mondo Grosso, "We Can Make It" by Sole Fusion, "Sume Sigh Say" by House Of Gypsies, "The Ha Dance" by MAW, and "Boomin In Ya Jeep" by Kenny Dope with Screechy Dan.

✨✧ VariousIn The Pocket – 70s Jazz Funk ... CD
Backbeats (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
In the pocket, and plenty darn funky – a killer collection of 70s jazz funk that's heavy on electricity, yet still keeps things mighty sharp throughout! The groove is tight – tighter than the raw soul of the 60s jazz years – yet never uptight, as all these cuts are plenty fresh and freewheeling, and definitely preserve the most spontaneous vibe of the players. Some cuts have a bit of vocals, some have some larger backings, but all still have some great solos in the middle – with an especially strong emphasis on sweet keyboards! Titles include "Zauis" by Eddie Russ, "Barbara Ann" by Webster Lewis, "Coming To You Live" by Charles Earland, "Brazilica" by Ramsey Lewis, "Sinbad" by Weldon Irvine, "Put It In The Pocket" by Freddie Hubbard, "Palos" by Willie Bobo, "Chicago Theme" by Hubert Laws, "Hop Scotch" by Harvey Mason, and "In The Park" by Lonnie Liston Smith.

✨✧ VariousMake Music – Folk Funk Flavours & Ambient Soul ... CD
Harmless (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful compilation – with a really unique sound! The compilers have gone for the sort of tracks that have provided an inspiration for some of London's more spacious soul artists of the past few years – and they've carved out a special slice of tunes from the cusp of the 70s, right at the point when hippie freedoms were sneaking into soul, folk, rock, and funk – in rare instances creating a fantastic blend of moods and modes, tunes that deliver that rare sound known in the underground as the "folk funk experience". The package is different than most funk compilations you'll buy this year – with a laidback groove that features lots of acoustic guitar, hand-played percussion, and even some nice touches of strings in just the right parts. The familiar mixes with the obscure – and the result is one of the tastiest listens our ears have heard in a long time! Titles include "You" by Bill Withers, "Play With Fire" by Barbara & Ernie, "And That's Saying A Lot" by Christine Perfect, "Les Fleur" by Minnie Riperton, "Milk & Honey" by Bonnie Dobson, "For What It's Worth" by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66, "Reach For The Truth" by Linda Lewis, "Make Music" by Rena Sinakin, "I Have Seen" by The Pedllers, "The Dolphins" by Al Wilson, "Our Lives Are Shaped By What We Love" by Odyssey, and "Aht Uh Mi Hed" by Shuggie Otis.

✨✧ VariousSweetest Feeling – A Van McCoy Songbook 1962 to 1973 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet overview of the Van McCoy songbook from the early 60s to early 70s – and a stellar compilation from Ace Records – a label that's gone above and beyond in its efforts to shine a light on the songwriters and producers behind some of most moving songs of the era! The breadth ofMcCoy's talent is pretty amazing, all the more so given his huge disco era hit "The Hustle", a world away from the soaringly emotional soul songs he penned for top shelf singers like Betty Everett, Nina Simone, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Nancy Wilson, Donny Hathaway, Erma Franklin, Jerry Butler and more – many of the best of which are compiled here! 24 tracks in all: "I Got The Sweetest Feeling" by Erma Franklin, "Getting Mighty Crowded" by Betty Everett, "Baby I'm Yours" by Barbara Lewis, "Sotp And Get A Hold Of Myself" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "So Soon" by Aretha Franklin, "Giving Up" by Donny Hathaway, "Nothing Worse Than Being Alone" by The Ad Libs, "I've Lost You" by Jackie Wilson and many more.
