✨✧ Bettye LavetteTell Me A Lie ... CD
Motown/Reel Music, 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare set from legendary southern soul diva Betty Lavette – recorded as a one-off for Motown in the early 80s, but done in a deep soul style that has plenty of 70s touches! The feel here is almost in the Malaco mode – southern soul, but with some more sophisticated modern touches – an approach which takes Betty's great vocals and makes them come across with a warm, sensuous glow that's really great. And if you've got any doubts about the date of the record, or the label it's on, shelve them now – because this is a great record with plenty of wonderful mellow soul numbers that display a whole new side of Betty's talents – every bit as great as her earlier work for rootsier labels, and proof that she was always a shining star in the deep soul scene, no matter what the setting! Titles include "I Like It Like That", "Tell Me A Lie", "Right In The Middle", "Either Way We Lose", "Suspicions", and "Before I Knew Your Name". CD

✨✧ Bettye LavetteDo Your Duty ... LP
Silver Fox/Sundazed, Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Classic soul from Bettye Lavette – with some her best recordings ever – a batch of tunes cut in Memphis with Lelan Rogers for the Silver Fox label in '69 & '70! The Betty heard here is a lot harder than on her earlier soul sides – recorded with a raw power that could easily blow away Aretha Franklin or any of her hard soul sisters – and done with a unique crossing of southern, funky, and country soul modes! Amazing! Titles include "My Train's A Coming", "Do Your Duty", "Love Made A Fool Of Me", "At The Mercy Of A Man", "Piece Of My Heart", "Easier To Say Than Do", "He Made A Woman Out Of Me", "We Got To Slip Around", "I'm In Love" and "Games People Play".

✨✧ VariousWest End Story Vol 2 – A Second Edition Of Original Full Length Versions Of History Making Dance Classics From The Label That Started It Al ... LP
West End, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $26.99
Classic club cuts that still sound wonderful all these many years later – tracks from the New York underground at the end of the 70s – and the sorts of grooves that were a big inspiration to the rise of house music too! The package brings together a stunning selection of cuts from the West End label – an imprint who was maybe second only to Salsoul for its importance to the New York clubs, but also one who maybe kept more of a commitment to the underground, both in the themes of its music and in the way it really let the DJs and mixers do their thing! Tracks on this second volume include "Work That Body (club version)" by Taana Gardner, "Is it All Over My Face (female version)" by Loose Joints, "Another Man (12" voc)" by Barbara Mason, "Give Your Body Up To The Music" by Billy Nichols, "Ride On The Rhythm (voc)" by Mahogany, "Girl I Like The Way You Move (voc)" by Stone, "Doin The Best That I Can (Walter Gibbons special mix)" by Bettye Lavette, and "Just In Time (voc)" by Raw Silk. LP, Vinyl record album
