✨✧ Archie BellI Never Had It So Good ... LP
Becket, 1981. Very Good+ ... $9.99
By this point in his career, Archie's recording without the Drells, and has moved from Philly International onto the smaller Becket label in New York. However, he's still recording in a very similar style to his late 70s work in Philly – with a smooth grooving sound that's very seductive on the dancefloor, and which continues Archie's forays into sophisticated modern soul. One of the best cuts is "Harder & Harder", a midtempo tune with nice jazzy touches on sax and piano, smooth vocals from Archie, and a hook that hangs the whole thing together! Other tracks include "Don't Wait for The World", "Why Didja Do Me", "Without You", and "I Never Made Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jerry BellWinter Love Affair ... LP
MCA, 1981. Very Good+ ... $13.99
Smooth soul produced and written by Michael Wycoff, with Wycoff playing keyboards and doing background vocals. Sort of makes us wonder what he needed Jerry Bell for, but Bell's voice is pretty nice, and we like it better than Wycoff's. With the tracks "Call On Me", "I Still Remember", and "Something Bout You Baby". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Archie Bell & The DrellsDance Your Troubles Away ... LP
TSOP, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Although Archie Bell & The Drells had recorded earlier with Gamble & Huff on Atlantic, this is their first album for the team's own label – and it's a killer! In a way, Archie and group were sort of responsible for getting Gamble & Huff their own famous imprint in the first place – because their work with the team on Atlantic yielded some instant hits that really pointed the way towards the hit Gamble & Huff style of the 70s, and that sound is brought up-to-date nicely on this LP. The record really retains the strong vocal sound of earlier years – and has some of the best harmonies the band ever recorded, very much in the mode of The O'Jays or Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes. McFadden & Whitehead and Bunny Sigler wrote most of the material, backing is by the Instant Funk group, and the Gamble & Huff team handled production on all cuts. Titles include "Let's Groove", "I Won't Leave You Honey, Never", "Let's Groove", "The Soul City Walk", "Dance Your Troubles Away", and "I Love You (But You Don't Even Know It)".

✨✧ William BellSoul Of A Bell ... LP
Stax, 1967. Used ... Out Of Stock
Excellent work from singer William Bell – and one of the best-ever full LPs to come out of Stax Records in the 60s! At this early point in his career, Bell was simply stunning – a blend of southern soul with some of the more sophisticated touches happening up north, all summed up in the album's landmark tear-jerker track, "You Don't Miss Your Water" – one of those tracks that we never tire of hearing! The whole album's great, filled with fantastic original songs – and titles that include "Any Other Way", "You're Such A Sweet Thang", "Everybody Loves A Winner", and "Eloise". LP, Vinyl record album

Gary GlitterGary Glitter ... LP
Bell, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold ... $5.99
A great little album from Gary – his one big American hit, and a sublime blend of glam and groove, featuring the massive "Rock & Roll", a track that's still played ad infinitum today at sports events – and which never fails to charge up the scene! Gary must have gotten a bucket of royalties for that one – and the rest of the record's equally great, filled with power-driving numbers that have a roar like a Harley in low gear. Also includes "Baby Please Don't Go", "I Didn't Know I Loved You (Till I Saw You Rock & Roll)",'Ain't That A Shame", "Rock On","The Famous Instigator" and "Shaky Sue". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Leonard RosenmanBeneath The Planet Of The Apes ... LP
Bell/Amos, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $44.99
Totally excellent – and probably the best of the Planet Of The Apes soundtracks! The record features lots of snippets of dialogue from the film – including Cornelius telling the creed of the fate of man, General Ursus addressing Ape City, and the chilling Mass Of The Holy Bomb. The main score has some great work by Leonard Roseman, in kind of an off-kilter style with lots of atonal string passages – but it also features a few tasty funky cuts. The best of these is the "March Of The Apes", a great little funky 70s soundtrack number, and there's also a weird funky passage at the end of the "mass", with voices chanting in a hippy dippy kind of way! A great relic of a wild weird film, and one we don't see often! LP, Vinyl record album

RumplestiltskinRumplestiltskin ... LP
Bell, 1970. Near Mint- ... $49.99
An excellent rock album with lots of funky breaks, and some very very heavy drums by Rupert Baer! The set was put together by Shel Talmy, but he also got some help from the great Alan Hawkshaw, of funky KPM and Serge Gainsbourg fame – who seems to hone the record into a groove that goes way beyond its initial potential! The overall concept is a bit silly – as you might guess from the cover – and although some of the lyrics are lackluster, the record more than makes up for it with the mix of drums, bass, and organ in the instrumental sections – and there's more than a few nice moments here to please the beatheads! Tracks include "Make Me Make You", "No One To Turn To", "Squadron Leader Johnson", "Pate De Foie Gras", and "Knock On My Door". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '77Love Music ... LP
Bell, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
Warm mellow magic from Sergio Mendes in the 70s – a great little album that's got a sweet electric feel! The set was recorded with help from Tom Scott and Bob Alcivar on arrangements, and has a sunny southern California feel that's a nice extension of Sergio's 60s work – yet which also takes his sound to a whole new level. There's still some traces of Braziliana in the mix, but there's also a lot more straight soulful pop – really working that twin female vocal lead style nicely, and wrapping it around some great tunes like "I Wouldn't Last A Day Without You", "Hey Look At The Sun", "Love Music", "Killing Me Softly", "Where Is The Love", "Put A Little Love Away", and "Walk The Way You Talk".

✨✧ 5th DimensionIndividually & Collectively ... LP
Bell, 1972. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An early 70s treasures from The 5th Dimension – continuing the group's amazing run from the late 60s onward – a sublime blend of the group's great harmonies with standout lead vocals – all produced by Bones Howe, and arranged with help from from Bob Alcivar and Bill Holman! There's a growing sophistication in the set that we really like – a deeper, more personal feel on some of the lyrics – especially some of the more "adult" styled numbers that always showed that the group was way more than just a simple pop machine. Tracks include a scatting vocal version of the Johnny Alf bossa groover "Sky & Sea", plus "I Didn't Get To Sleep At All", "All Kinds Of People", "Tomorrow Belongs To The Children", "Turn Around To Me", "Band Of Gold", and "Border Song".

✨✧ 5th DimensionLiving Together, Growing Together ... LP
Bell, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
The group's grown plenty by the time of this set – hitting a new level of sophistication that takes them way beyond the familiar pop of earlier years! There's definitely a more adult feel to some of these tracks than before – a maturing quality that's really wonderful – probably summed up best in the lead vocals of Marilyn McCoo or Florence LaRue – but still sounding pretty great even when the whole group's singing together! Bones Howe is still at the helm, guiding the group with a heavenly sound that's the pinnacle of pop at the time – and titles include two great Burt Bacharach numbers – "Living Together,Growing Together", lifted from the Lost Horizon soundtrack, and "Let Me Be Lonely" – plus the tracks "Woyaya", "What Do I Need To Be Me", "Open Your Window", and "The Riverwitch".

✨✧ Michel LegrandThree Musketeers ... LP
Bell, 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
70s soundtrack work from the mighty Michel Legrand – his score for the famous Three Musketeers film directed by Richard Lester! 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. As you might guess from the story, there's a few period themes at points – although not as many as you might expect. Titles include "He Ain't Heavy He's The Cardinal", "Four Abreast", "Sword For Your Supper", "To Love A Queen", and "Dirty Business Amongst The Dirty Laundry". LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1975. Near Mint- ... $7.99
The best from The Band in years – their first all originals studio effort in a few years, and one that deservedly re-established them creatively, if not commercially, as one of the all time great rock bands! Robbie Robertson is solely credited for the compositions, but make no mistake, this record is by The Band – not just notes committed to a page and played – it's a fluid, intuitive and timeless album that we love nearly as much as anything they'd ever done – possibly as much as Big Pink or self-titled, even more on some days. Essential! Titles include "Rags & Bones", "Acadian Driftwood", "Hobo Jungle", "Ophelia", "Ring Your Bell", Jupiter Hollow" and "It Makes No Difference". LP, Vinyl record album

Delaney & BonnieHome ... LP
Stax, 1969. Very Good+ ... $16.99
Roots rock but with a strongly soulful undercurrent – thanks to key late 60s Stax production from Donald Duck Dunn and Don Nix, both of whom make the record sound a lot hipper than many other similar sets from the time! The record showcases the singing and songwriting talents of Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett – a pair who were hyped heavily by the rock scene of their era, but who also step out here with equally soulful appeal – almost a blue-eyed soul take on the Stax sound of the late 60s! Of course, it helps that the pair get plenty of help on the record from folks like Booker T & The MGs, The Memphis Horns, Isaac Hayes, and William Bell – but their own efforts are pretty great too, as heard on tracks that include "My Baby Specializes", "Things Get Better", "We Can Love", "Just Plain Beautiful", "Everybody Loves A Winner", and "Pour Your Love On Me". CD features 6 bonus tracks – including "A Long Road Ahead", "I've Just Been Feeling Bad", "Dirty Old Man", and "Get Ourselves Together". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ DelfonicsTell Me This Is A Dream ... LP
Philly Groove, 1972. Very Good- ... $11.99
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

Art FarmerSing Me Softly Of The Blues ... LP
Atlantic, 1965. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A sublime little set – one of Art Farmer's seminal quartet recordings from the mid 60s, and a blend of modern lyricism with an ease and economy that's hardly ever been matched again! There's a careful, measured style here that's really tremendous – one that's never too sleepy or lazy with its approach, and which almost seems to carry on the modes of expression first begun by Jimmy Giuffre in the 50s – although in completely different ways! The group features Pete LaRoca on drums, Steve Kuhn on piano, and Steve Swallow on bass – but it's Art's effortless trumpet solos that really make the album sparkle, as they drift over the top of the album's hip original tunes, written by Carla Bley and LaRoca. Titles include "Ad Infinitum", "Petite Bell", "Tears", and "One For Majid". LP, Vinyl record album

The best cuts are actually the mellowest ones – which have a slinky French late 60s soundtrack theme approach – with guitar, piano, or a bit of flute laying out the theme over some rhythmic string passages – almost in the best style of Francis Lai. Titles include "Fight After OJ", "Panda Telephones Gig", "Panda", "Theme From Made For Each Other", and "Zoom In On Dolls", which has some "special effect water guitar" by Vince Bell!

Johnny Mathis gets a great new sound here – thanks to Philly production and arrangements from the great Thom Bell! Thom had quite a hand in the songs, too – as almost all numbers were written by the team of Bell and Linda Creed – really sensitive songwriters who've got an adult, mature approach to the music – one that still respects Mathis' roots in other vocal territory, but which also gives him a bit more soulful depth, too. The setting is wonderful, and the record's a real standout in Johnny's 70s career – one that helped reignite interest in the singer at a time when so many folks had left him behind. Titles include "I'm Coming Home", "Foolish", "I'm Stone In Love With You", "A Baby's Born", "Life Is A Song Worth Singing", "I Just Wanted To Be Me", and a classic version of "Stop Look & Listen To Your Heart".

The production's pretty straight, but the group's playing in a cool open-ended style that still has elements of their earlier work, but which really makes things a lot more interesting than some of the Atlantic recordings. Milt Jackson's vibes have a bit more of a bell-like quality on some parts, and the rhythm team of Percy Heath and Connie Kay kick it with a soul jazz vibe on a few numbers – a nice change from the sleepier rhythms of earlier albums. Titles include "The Blue Necklace", "Exposure", "Jasmine Tree", and "Three Little Feelings". LP, Vinyl record album

Great early work from Melba Moore – recorded at a time when she was winning big accolades for her work on stage as a parody of Diana Ross in Hair – but stepping out here as a hell of a great soul singer on her own! The tunes have a groove that's a bit more complicated than the usual soul work of the time – charts by Charlie Calello that show all his wonderful background in creative pop in the 60s – plus a few more numbers charted by Thom Bell and Jimmy Wisner. Melba's vocals are superb – very on the money, no matter what the setting – and titles include "Captain St Lucifer", "I Got Love", "Time & Love", "I Love Making Love To You", "I Messed Up On A Good Thing", "Easy To Be Hard", and "The Facade".

The album's got a solid feel all the way through – one that really sets Moore on the right path in this side of her career, in ways that maximize the most righteous aspects of her vocals without going too far over the top, or into the area of showy cliches. Arrangements are by Charles Coleman, Charlie Calello, Jimmy Wisner, Thom Bell, and Bert DeCoteaux – and titles include "Loving You Comes So Easy", "Heaven Help Us All", "Searchin For A Dream", "Look What You're Doing To The Man", "Patience Is Rewarded", and "You Got The Power".

One of the best things to ever happen to The Persuaders – a wonderfully rich album that has the group still sparkling strongly, long after their early hits! The harmonies are wonderful – very much on par with the bigger names at Philly International at the time – and recorded with sweet Sigma Sound production, and arrangements by Tony (not Thom) Bell that are a perfect blend of sweet and soulful – strings at some points, but a bassy bottom at others – so that the group manage to hit some even more righteous moments than before. Tunes are great, too – with some killer originals by Phil Hurtt – and the whole set's a no-filler gem that's kept us coming back for years! Titles include "Some Guys Have All The Luck", "Hold On (Just A Little Bit Longer)", "All Strung Out On You", "Stay With Me", "That's The Way She Is", and "We're Just Trying To Make It".

✨✧ Philadelphia International All-StarsLet's Clean Up The Ghetto ... LP
Philadelphia International, Late 70s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
An amazing little record that's easily one of the most righteous albums ever from Philadelphia International – a set designed to "give back" to the communities who supported the label strongly in the 70s, as a unique fund-raising effort, done before such records were commonplace! The Philly International roster of stars teamed up to put out this stunning set of tracks aimed at cleaning up the "ghettoes", both physical and mental, that continue to haunt the African-American communities in the US – and the set features key new numbers, plus a few more older tracks pulled from other Philly records that really work well to support the righteous message of the set. The centerpiece is the long title cut – "Let's Clean Up The Ghetto" – which has Lou Rawls doing a monologue about the garbage strike in New York, then launches into performances by Teddy Pendergrass, The O'Jays, Billy Paul, and Archie Bell. Other highlights include "The Big Gangster" by The O'Jays, "Old People" by Archie Bell, "Everybody's Talkin" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, and "Now Is The Time To Do It" by Teddy Pendergrass.

Vivian Reed was an obscure soul singer who cut a few equally obscure albums for Epic, of which this is the first. Given that she was a new discovery by the label, it's not surprising that the record was handled in the way that it was – she was produced in 2 different styles, one with arrangements by Jimmy Wisner that have a rootsier soul quality, the other with nice Philly touches by Thom Bell and Bobby Martin. The Philly stuff's the best, and the Bell/Martin team really knows how to get the best out of Vivian – especially on tracks like "Let's Fall In Love All Over Again", "Look The Other Way", "Down Here On The Ground", and "Walk On My Side".

Titles include "Bull Dog", "Give Him A Great Big Kiss", "It's Easier To Cry", "Leader Of The Pack", "What Is Love", "Dressed In Black", "He Cried", and "I Can Never Go Home Anymore".

The album's not filled with hits, but that's a big part of its charm – as the group still sounds great, with smoother than smooth vocals – and the tunes move nicely between the soaring style the group discovered in Philly, and some of the mellower moments we've grown to like even more in their work over the years. Most players are Sigma Sound regulars, and titles include "I'm Tired Of Giving", "You Got The Love That I Need", "Painted Magic", "Easy Come Easy Go", "Love Is One Step Away", "Back In The Arms Of Love", and "Heaven On Earth".

Arrangements are actually by Tony (not Thom) Bell and Richard Rome – and backings are by the cream of the Philly crew, including Vince Montana, Ron Baker, Bobby Eli, Norman Harris, and Phil Hurtt.

Chess, Early 60s. Very Good ... $19.99

Big MaybelleBlues, Candy, & Big Maybelle (80s pressing) ... LP
Savoy, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
The title kind of says it all – as the album's a set of 10 bluesy tracks by Maybelle, built around her perennial hit "Candy" – a sweet and dreamy tune that's been forever kept alive by her version! The style is very much in the vein of that hit, and other tunes on the album include "Ring Dang Dilly", "Blues Early Early", "Pitiful", "So Long", "Ramblin Blues", and "There I've Said It Again".

Ralph BurnsJazz Studio 5 ... LP
Decca, Mid 50s. Good+ ... $14.99
Fantastic work from one of our favorite jazz arrangers ever! As proven by some of his impeccable work crafting larger backings for artists on the Verve and Clef labels, Ralph Burns had an approach that was quite different than most of his contemporaries. He worked in a mode that seemed pretty standard at the outset – with an approach to backdrops that worked in broad colors of sound and tone – but he also had a talent for putting in strange modern twists, little surprises, and other embellishments that never detracted from the soloist, and instead seemed to keep them on their toes, forcing them to really come up with some great stuff during their time at the recording. You'll hear plenty of that kind of action going on here – in one of Burns' rarest sets ever, recorded with a group that includes Billy Byers, Joe Newman, Dave Schildkraut, Herbie Mann, and Milt Hinton. Mann's particularly great, and plays a number of horns with ease – and titles include "Cool Cat On A Hot Tin Roof", "What Am I Here For", "I'll Be Around", "Jazz Club USA", and "South Gonzales Street Parade.

✨✧ Kenny BurrellTender Gender ... LP
Cadet, 1966. Very Good- ... $5.99
Straight, strong, and soulful sounds from guitarist Kenny Burrell – quite possibly one of his best albums of the 60s, thanks to a really well-focused sound throughout! The groove here is nice and tight – a cooking little rhythm section that features Richard Wyands on piano, Martin Rivera on bass, and Oliver Jackson on drums – snapping away on the kit on some of the best tracks, and really helping Burrell to hit this groove that's mighty nice! Kenny seems to have a bit more bite than usual too – and even the laidback tunes have plenty going on to keep our ears happy. Titles include "La Petite Mambo", "Suzy", "The Tender Gender", "Girl Talk", "Isabella", "If Someone Had Told Me", and "Hot Bossa". LP, Vinyl record album

Captain BeyondCaptain Beyond ... LP
Cotillion, 1972. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A surprisingly great batch of kick ass rock and roll tunes – southern fried, but done with a cosmic undercurrent that makes for a mighty weird approach! The drums are amazing – fierce right from the get-go, in a way that has made the record a favorite with break collectors for years – and the fuzzy guitars really step out strongly too – with just a slight southern twang, and a great edge that keeps things pretty funky at parts! Bobby Caldwell is in the group on percussion, piano, vibes, and bells – and he also co-wrote most of the songs on the album – and titles include the classic "Dancing Madly Backwards", plus "Myopic Void", "Frozen Over", "Thousand Days Of Yesterdays", "As The Moon Speaks", and "Astral Lady".

CrusadersThose Southern Knights ... LP
Blue Thumb/ABC, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $1.99
Apart from the title's terrible pun on the Glenn Campbell hit of the mid 70s, this album's a real treat – a very soulful batch of smooth funky jazz tunes by The Crusaders, who by this point have fully emerged to claim the throne of the pop soul jazz genre they virtually invented. The record's got razor-sharp production, which you'll hear perfectly in the album's jazz stepping hit "Keep That Same Old Feeling", one of the best tunes ever to come from the pen of Wayne Henderson, and a track that he recorded endlessly with other groups. Other tracks include "Feeling Funky", "Spiral", and "Til The Sun Shines". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dick Dale And His Del-TonesMr Eliminator ... LP
Capitol, 1964. Very Good- (reissue)... $34.99
Dick Dale may have been the King Of Surf Guitar, but knew how to burn rubber on drag strip rockers, too – firing it up on the Mr Eliminator LP – with arrangements credited to Hank Levine, but surf-and-drag genius Gary Usher deserves a lot of credit, too! Musicians include Usher's session whizzes including Glen Campbell & Bruce Johnston, but Dale's fiery lead guitar blazes past for the win. Includes "Mr Eliminator", "50 Miles To Go", "Flashing Eyes", "Taco Wagon", "The Victor", "Firing Up", "Blonde In The 406", "Firing Up", "Hot Rod Alley" and ore, LP, Vinyl record album

DzyanTime Machine ... LP
Bellaphon (Germany), 1973. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Heavily jamming work from Dzyan – two early 70s prog sets back to back! Time Machine is a set that's informed with plenty of jazzy changes – very much in the best rock fusion mode of the time, with Eddy Marron on a range of quick guitars, Reinhard Karwalky on basses, and Peter Giger on drums and percussion – often played to driving, bombastic excess. Marron sings a bit on the record, but the instrumentation seems to take center stage – and titles include "Kabisrain", "Magika", and "Light Shining Out Of Darkness". Electric Silence is from a year later, and features a similar lineup, but a slightly softer sound – one that picks up a few spacey touches, as you might guess from the title. There's some meditative moments and Eastern instrumentation in the mix here – nicely changing the sound from before, on tracks that include "A Day In My Life", "Road Not Taken", "Back To Where We Come From", "For Earthly Thinking", and "Electric Silence". LP, Vinyl record album
(Recent German reissue on Long Hair, including the insert.)
