✨✧ Chris BellI Am The Cosmos ... LP
4 Men With Beards, Mid 70s. Near Mint- ... $29.99
The legendary lost masterpiece of Chris Bell – an "album" that was only pulled together many years after his tragic early death, as a solo revelation of the genius that Bell had brought to the first album by Big Star! The tracks are incredible – with plenty to love if you love Big Star, but also maybe a more confident sort of presentation – as if, with any strange turn of psyche, Bell would have been able to rise into 70s pop stardom – had so many forces not conspired against him. Even before the release of the material in the early 90s, the sounds within seemed to have inspire some of the best on the forefront of creative underground work in the 80s – and from the perspective of the 21st Century, the whole thing's one of those records that now feels as if it's been perfectly placed in the legacy it deserves – every bit as magical now as when it was recorded. Titles include the classic "You & Your Sister", plus "Look Up", "I Got Kinda Lost", "There Was A Light", "Fight At The Table", "Make A Scene", "Better Save Yourself", "Speed Of Sound", and "I Am The Cosmos". LP, Vinyl record album

William BellRelating ... LP
Stax, 1973. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A great return to basics for William Bell – and an album recorded with a warm, intimate quality that we really love! The vibe here is almost in the style of some of the growing Malaco work coming out of the Jackson scene – with a sound that's smooth, but somehow even more deeply soulful than before – lots of room up top for the lead vocals to come across with a sense of personal commitment – but also some full, rich backings that include organ, guitars, and even a bit of strings. Rhodes Chalmers Rhodes back William up on most tracks – and titles include "Lovin On Borrowed Time", "Getting What You Want", "Such A Fever", "Drinkin & Thinkin", and "Nobody But You".

✨✧ Archie Bell & The DrellsHere I Go Again ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
Nice compilation that brings together some of the excellent lesser-known work that Archie and the group did for Atlantic in the late 60s! You may know their funky hit "Tighten Up" (not on this album), but after that, Archie and The Drells got into an excellent Philly soul vein, with fantastic loping grooves, and very catchy tracks that never let up. This album's got plenty of those, and titles include all-time favorites of ours like "My Balloon's Going Up", "Houston Texas", "I Love My Baby", "There's Gonna Be A Showdown", "Giving Up Dancing", and "Girl, You're Too Young".

Giovanni FuscoLa Guerre Est Finie ... LP
Bell, 1966. Sealed ... $6.99
An evocative soundtrack to Alain Resnais directed film La Guerre Est Finie – with a variety of moods, but often done with a spare touch and a measured, moody melodicism! There's a lot of harpsichord in the arrangements, which bring both gently emotional and sweetly poignant movements – sometimes building up with busier arrangements and wordless vocals bringing some very effective atmosphere.

Michel LegrandLes Trois Mousquetaires ... LP
Bell (France), 1973. Near Mint- ... $4.99
70s soundtrack work from the mighty Michel Legrand – his score for the famous Three Musketeers film directed by Richard Lester, and unissued music for the film Robin & Marian! The Musketeers music is quite dramatic – often filled with action, but with a few tender spots as well – and although somewhat more conventional in terms of scoring, there's still some of those sweeter Legrand touches we love so much – especially in some of the orchestral moments that echo his energy from Peau D'Ane.

✨✧ Dee Dee BridgewaterDee Dee Bridgewater (1980) ... LP
Elektra, 1980. Very Good ... $4.99
One of Dee Dee Bridgewater's few truly soul-based records – recorded during a brief break from jazz at the end of the 70s, and done with some sweetly grooving from Thom Bell! The sound here's a bit like that of some of the later Philly International work from the same stretch – a maturing style that still has a bit of the earlier groove in place, yet which also takes on a more sophisticated approach, especially on the mellower cuts and ballads. In a way, the format's a bit like that used for Jean Carn or Phyllis Hyman at the time – and like those singers, Dee Dee seems to work best here when she's got a nice gentle groove to bring out the jazzier inflections in her voice! Titles include "When You're In Love", "That's The Way Love Should Feel", "Give In To Love", "Lonely Disco Dancer", "One In A Million Guy", and "Jody (Whoever You Are)". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ George ClintonComputer Games ... LP
Capitol, 1982. Sealed ... $19.99
Great post-Parliafunkadelicment work from George Clinton – surely the biggest hit of his albums for Capitol – especially since it features the singles "Atomic Dog" and "Loopzilla"! We'll be honest in saying that at the time this one came out, as die-hard Detroit funk fans, we remember thinking "oh gosh, George has lost it" – but from the perspective of many years later, the record sure sounds like classic P-Funk to us – really picking up where the last few Funkadelic and Parliament albums left off! The album sports a great Pedro Bell cover, features some nice work with Bootsy, includes the hits "Atomic Dog" and "Loopzilla" – and also features some lesser-known gems that include "Pot Sharing Tots", "Get Dressed", "Computer Games", and "One Fun At A Time".

DelfonicsLa La Means I Love You ... LP
Philly Groove, 1968. Good+ ... $19.99
A landmark album in harmony soul – one of those records that pushed the genre to a whole new level! The Delfonics emerge fully formed here as one of the most compelling groups of their time – a tremendous trio with a really unique approach to soul music – one that's heartfelt and heartbreaking, but never too sweet to be cloying or poppy – definitely just the right groove to keep things hip while also cracking the charts! The album's their first full collaboration with legendary producer Thom Bell – and it's got a sound that's summed up perfectly in the quintessential cut "La La Means I Love You" – and which is followed through beautifully on a batch of tracks that includes "Losing You", "Can You Remember", "You're Gone", "I'm Sorry", and "Break Your Promise". LP, Vinyl record album

DelfonicsSound Of Sexy Soul ... LP
Philly Groove, 1969. Very Good+ ... $49.99
A groundbreaking album of vocal group soul – right from the first note! The record kicks off with the sublime "Ready Or Not, Here I Come" – which starts with fierce stepping strings that are actually funky, then soars into some of the best harmonies the group ever put to record, superbly arranged by the great Thom Bell, who also wrote the track. As the album progresses, the sound expands further to encompass many elements that would become the blueprint for vocal groups over the next few years – like twangy electric sitar, cascading orchestrations, and pinched lead vocals that take a lot more chances than most group singers had been taking for years! There's still a bit of a 60s soul sound to some of the cuts, but the album's a watershed – not only for Thom Bell and the group, but for harmony soul as well! Titles include "Ready Or Not Here I Come", "My New Love", "Loving Him", "With These Hands", "Somebody Loves You", and "Everytime I See My Baby". LP, Vinyl record album

Classic East Coast harmony soul! This is one of the best-ever albums of the genre, and it's a massive collection of the Delfonics mighty singles from the early 70s. Thom Bell did all the arrangements and wrote nearly all the songs – 11 tracks in all: "La La Means I Love You", "Ready Or Not Here I Come", "Break Your Promise", "I'm Sorry", "You're Gone", 'With These Hands", "You Got Yours And I'll Get Mine", "Let It Be Me", "Loving Him", "My New Love" and "Somebody Loves You".

DelfonicsTell Me This Is A Dream ... LP
Philly Groove, 1972. Very Good ... $19.99
The Delfonics just kept on getting better and better! The longer the group recorded, the more they picked up this strange spacey quality that pushed them past some of their contemporaries of the early 70s. And on an album like this, they prove that they're way more than just Thom Bell puppets by showing that they have a rich talent for a wide variety of complicated arrangements that really push the vocal group sound of the 70s. They take many stylistic risks, coming up with really sinister new harmonies, and always managing to stay clear of the cliches that buried some of their mates on the charts. Bell still arranges some of the material, but the record also features work by Norman Harris and Caldwell MacMillan, who did the real genius work on the record. This masterpiece includes the sublime "Hey, Love", plus "Walk Right Up to the Sun", "I'm A Man", "Too Late", "Love You Till I Die", "Looking for a Girl", and "Round & Round". LP, Vinyl record album

Duke EllingtonDuke Ellington Meets Coleman Hawkins ... LP
Impulse, 1962. Very Good Gatefold ... $29.99
The meeting of two classic talents late in their careers – in a setting that's ideal to bring out all the complexity of their well-honed genius! The approach of the album is mostly an Ellington one – as the group features some of Duke's stalwarts, like Ray Nance, Johnny Hodges, Harry Carney, Lawrence Brown, and Aaron Bell – but Coleman Hawkins gets plenty of space as the main soloist on each number, alongside Duke, who also solos strongly on piano! As with most later records by the players, the writing is great – with a lot more dark moments than you'd expect – and titles include "The Rictic", "You Dirty Dog", "Limbo Jazz", "Wanderlust", and "Self Portrait Of The Bean". LP, Vinyl record album

Curtis FullerBoss Of The Soul-Stream Trombone ... LP
Warwick, 1960. Near Mint- ... $26.99
We're not sure what "soul-stream" is as a genre – but given the strength of this record, we'd be more than willing to grant it onto Curtis Fuller all by himself! The record's a gem that's even more obscure than Fuller's already-rare dates for Blue Note at the end of the 50s – a crack set done for the Warwick label, and one that features an all-star group who've got a great blend of modern edges and soulful rhythms. Alongside Fuller's trombone, other players include Yusef Lateef on tenor and flute, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Walter Bishop on piano, Buddy Catlett on bass, and Stu Martin on drums – making a rare early appearance here. Titles include "If I Were A Bell", "Do I Love You", "Chantized", "Flutie", "The Court", and "Mr L". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ FunkadelicHardcore Jollies ... LP
Warner, 1976. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
One of the sweetest Funkadelic albums from the middle period, and a good batch of tracks that often gets overlooked in the haze of similar Pedro Bell covers! Don't miss this one, though – because it is a very strong album – key in the shift from more guitar-based funk to more groove-oriented rhythms – and a record that's got more than a few tasty numbers. Includes nice ones like "You Scared The Lovin Outta Me", "Comin Round The Mountain", and "If You Got Funk, You Got Style", plus a live version of "Cosmic Slop" that's totally great!

FunkadelicTales Of Kidd Funkadelic ... LP
Westbound, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
An oft-overlooked gem by Funkadelic – the group's last album for Westbound, and a record that really has them growing into a great new groove! Bootsy and Eddie Hazel have stepped aside for the set, but that gives Bernie Worrell plenty of room to work his magic on keyboards – in a way that really increases the spacier elements of the set, and almost trades a messed-up moogy sort of feel for the heady guitars of earlier years – a slippery kind of Funky Worm groove that we totally love! The set is self-described as "delightfully putrid" on the Pedro Bell cover – and we couldn't agree more! Titles include "Undisco Kidd", "Let's Take It To The People", "How Do Yeaw View You", "Butt-to-Butt Resuscitation" and "Take Your Dead Ass Home!". LP, Vinyl record album

Baystate/Timeless (Netherlands), 1982. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A great session from Red Garland – recorded in the early 80s with support from Ahmad Jamal's old trio-mates – Jamil Nassar on bass and Frank Gant on drums! The Garland heard here is a gentler one than on his earlier recordings – playing with a nice Jamal-like sense of spacious exploration and mellow grooving. Tunes are mostly standards, but they're handled here in a manner that makes them feel much more like personal statements of expression than familiar chestnuts – and titles include "This Can't Be Love", "Misty", "But Not For Me", "Over The Rainbow", and "If I Were A Bell".

Johnny Griffin & Matthew GeeSoul Groove ... LP
Atlantic, 1964. Very Good ... $24.99
A heck of a soul jazz treasure from the 60s – and one of the hardest-hitting jazz albums ever issued by the Atlantic Records label! The vibe here is almost more Prestige Records overall – with very gutbuckety work from Johnny Griffin on tenor and Matthew Gee on trombone – on gritty tunes that snap along beautifully, and have Geen hitting some of the best tones he'd ever record – trombone that's maybe in the spirit of Bennie Green at his best. The combo also features Hank Jones on both piano and organ – plus Aaron Bell on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – and titles are nicely unusual, and include "Mood For Cryin", "The Swingers Get The Blues Too", "Twist City", "Oh Gee!", "Here", and "Renee".

Goldie HawnGoldie ... LP
Reprise, 1972. Sealed ... $19.99
A rare vocal outing from Goldie Hawn – recorded early in her career, and kind of a seminal shift away from the goofier side of her Laugh-In years! The style is surprisingly heartfelt, and quite intimate – a bit like that of Claudine Longet's later records at times, which is well suited to Goldie's voice, and no surprise considering that Longet's maestro Nick DeCaro had a hand in the set. Other tracks, though, bring in a bit more of a country influence – which is somewhat odd, but a really nice surprise in this setting – and shows a bit more depth than we'd expect from Hawn. Goldie's got some help on the record from Dolly Parton, Porter Wagoner, and Buck Owens & The Buckaroos – and titles include the wonderful "The House Song", plus "Carey", "Cloudy Summer", "Ring Bell", "Pasadena", "My Blue Tears", and "Uncle Pen".

Isaac HayesTough Guys ... LP
Enterprise, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
One of Isaac Hayes' richest soundtracks – deeper and more complicated than the groove of Shaft and Truck Turner, and filled with some great tunes that glow with color, life, and imagination – showing an Isaac Hayes that almost seems to be moving beyond the usual blackploitation groove! The album sports 2 really classic tunes – the title theme "Tough Guys", and the classic "Hung Up On My Baby" – both of which have a solidly funky feel that will more than please the usual soundtrack beathead crowd. But overall, the other tunes twist and turn in a delightful mix of modes – expanding on the soulful territory Ike first explored in his original soundtracks, and offering up a great range of moods and emotion. The album's got some especially great chromatic guitar work – and other titles include "Joe Bell", "Randolph & Dearborn", "Buns O Plenty", "Run Fay Run", and "Red Rooster". LP, Vinyl record album

Kay-GeesFind A Friend ... LP
Gang, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
The Kay-Gee's are getting a little disco here, but they also still manage to lay down some nice funky tracks, in the best Kool & The Gang tradition of their early work. Ronald Bell of Kool & Gang is still working with the group – and he wrote a lot of material and also performs on the LP. The record shows signs of the direction that Kool & The Gang were taking at the time, with a move towards electric keyboards instead of raw funky guitars – but like Kool's work from the period, the use of these keyboards is nicely restrained, and adds some good jazzy elements to the sound. Cuts include "Waiting At The Bus Stop", "Mr. Nothin", "STP", "Be Real", and a number of versions of "Find A Friend". LP, Vinyl record album

This set's got an equally groovy feel, but in a different way – as Dave's on piano with the great Andy Simpkins on bass – and Lori Bell adds in some nicely lyrical touches on flue. Most tracks are original – and the mix of flute, piano, and bass is quite compelling. LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie MooreSweet Charlie Babe ... LP
Atlantic, 1973. Very Good ... $8.99
A classic set of 70s crossover deep soul – recorded in the mode of similar work by Betty Wright or Laura Lee, and done with a similar mix of raw southern vocals and tighter production! About half the work was handled by the team of Dave Crawford and Brad Shapiro – working in the Criteria Studios in Miami to give Jackie a sound that's similar to Shapiro's work with Millie Jackson. The other half was produced in Philly, by the Young Professionals team of LeBaron Taylor, Tony Bell, and Phil Hurt – who give Jackie a warm, gliding, sweet 70s Philly groove! And although you might think that this Philly/Miami split would make for a mixed bag of tunes, the album's surprisingly unified – and in a way, does plenty to link together the growing dancefloor scenes in both cities. Titles include "Willpower", "Both Ends Against The Middle", "Time", "Something In A Look", "Clean Up Your Own Yard", "If", and "Darling Baby". LP, Vinyl record album

Oliver NelsonSound Pieces ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $29.99
One of the most impressive albums ever from arranger Oliver Nelson – a set that really shows the full depth of his mighty talents! Side one features Nelson working with a larger orchestra – similar to the kind of ensemble he arranged for other artists in the 60s, but handled here with an open, searching sort of sound – really impressive modern jazz elements on the title track, then some sweeter, warmer soul sounds on a few shorter numbers too! Nelson plays soprano sax, and his use of the instrument is definitely Coltrane-informed at times – and a nice change from his more familiar alto. The flipside features just a quartet – Oliver again on soprano sax – plus Steve Kuhn on piano, Ron Carter bass, and Grady Tate on drums. With Kuhn on piano, bringing a nice modern edge that works perfectly with the soprano. Titles include "Sound Piece For Jazz Orchestra", "Patterns", "Flute Salad", "The Lady From Girl Talk", and "Elegy For A Duck". LP, Vinyl record album

The band wasn't the greatest harmony group in the world – although they did feature John Brown, who'd cut his teeth in the Five Satins – but when you teamed them up with production by Thom Bell, and backing from the Sigma Sound Studios, they created an unstoppable sound that was a perfect pop peddling of the harmony group sound. This album was their biggest – and it includes the classic "I'm Doin' Fine Now", plus lots of other nice tracks like "Hang Your Head In Shame", "Quick, Fast, In A Hurry", "Uncle James", and "Reach Out".

The album's pretty great, stepping out into the solo soul realm with terrific footing – and the best tunes have a smoothed out modern approach that's actually quite refreshing – and a bit better than some of the work by Labelle in the late years! 9 tracks in all, including "Dan Swit Me", "You Can't Judge A Book By The Cover", "I Think About You" and "Do I Stand A Chance".

Cedar WaltonEastern Rebellion (Muse) ... LP
Timeless/Muse, 1975. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A seminal work in the development of the career of Cedar Walton – the formation of his excellent Eastern Rebellion ensemble, a group that became a platform for soul jazz expression for the next two decades! The group on this set features George Coleman on tenor, Sam Jones on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – all working in territory that Walton and Clifford Jordan were exploring heavily at the time – long, drawn-out soul jazz tunes – frequently built upon modal rhythms, and touched with traces of post-Coltrane blowing. The key factor, though, is that the work's never too outside, never too overindulgent – just hard-swinging soul jazz, in a 70s expression of the older Blue Note ideal! Titles include "Bolivia", "5/4 Thing", "Mode For Joe", and "Naima". LP, Vinyl record album
(US Timeless/Muse pressing. Cover has a small bit of wear in the top left corner.)

✨✧ Bells Of JoyLet's Talk About Jesus With The Bells Of Joy ... LP
Peacock/MCA (Japan), Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer album of rare Duke Records gospel material by this hip male quintet – as much deep soul as church music! The set features 16 titles in all, and might be the only full album we've ever seen by the group on their Peacock/Duke material! LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes obi, too!)

✨✧ LabelleChameleon ... LP
Epic, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stone classic in the genre of bad-rapping female soul – and one of the key albums cut by the trio of Patti Labelle, Nona Hendryx, and Sarah Dash! The arrangements and production are handled by David Rubinson, who gives the set a nicely polished feel that gets a bit past some of the slight cliches that had been creeping into the girls work – a style that shows them equally well skilled at mellower numbers than at the funkier rockier tunes that were their more familiar stock in trade. Titles include "Come Into My Life", "A Man In A Trenchcoat (Voodoo)", "Get You Something New", "Going Down Makes Me Shiver", "Gypsy Moths", and "Who's Watching The Watcher?". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cut corner.)

✨✧ Patti LaBelleBe Yourself ... LP
MCA, 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hit set from the end of the 80s – one that showed Patti still going strong in her third decade in soul music! The set's got a style that's decidedly more modern than some of the classic work we know from Patti – but her vocals are still very strongly in place, and if anything, the overall presentation of the album has her strutting her stuff as a diva even more strongly than before. Titles include "Yo Mister", "I Can't Complain", "If You Asked Me To", "I'm Scared Of You", "Can't Bring Me Down", "Need A Little Faith", and "I Can Fly". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)
