Brothers JohnsonRight On Time ... LP
A&M, 1977. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A funky classic from the Brothers Johnson – sweet funky soul, done with a polish few could match! The pair are still working with Quincy Jones at this point, and the record's filled with lots of tight jazzy grooves that certainly show Quincy's touch – and which set the record apart from a number of similar mainstream funk records flooding the market at the time. The standout cut on the album is their great reading of "Strawberry Letter 23" – originally done by Shuggie Otis in a stoner version, but nicely stripped down here by the Bros, and given a very nice pop psychedelic soul twist! Other tracks include "Right On Time", "Q", "Free Yourself, Be Yourself", and "Love Is". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes booklet.)

✨✧ Brothers JohnsonStomp/Let's Swing ... 12-inch
A&M, 1980. Used (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
No stomping here, and instead a sweetly soaring groove – very much in the best Brothers Johnson mode! Quincy Jones produced, and the track is a great one from the Light Up The Night album – bouncing, soulful, and with a great boogie bottom – topped off with some nice basswork and keyboards that even get a bit moogy! "Let's Swing" has some nice electro undertones, but still retains most of the warmth that we dig in The Brothers' best work! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Betty & Charles/Patterson Twins/FiestasSoul Chant – Soul Brothers & A Soul Sister ... LP
Malaco/Vivid (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Brilliant southern soul from the Malaco scene – slices of work from both the late 60s and early 70s! The set begins with some great work by the duo of Betty Johnson and Charles Warren – singing together in a mode that has echoes of some of the other southern soul duos of the time, but which also seems to sparkle a bit more – almost a Marvin/Tammi influence which sneaks in nicely on some tracks. There's also some solo material by each singer – and the set also includes "Two Wrongs Don't Make It Right" and "I Need Your Love" by Patterson Twins, and "Is That Long Enough For You" and "I'm Gonna Hate Myself" by Fiestas.

Miguel De Deus/Boogaloo ComboBlack Soul Brothers/Hot Pants Roads ... 7-inch
Odeon/Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $9.99
Killer funky soul from Brazil! "Black Soul Brothers" begins with this massive break, and an "uhhhh" exclamation that would have made Syl Johnson proud – all before the tune then rolls into these heavy horns and a sweet female chorus singing the lyric! "Hot Pants Road" is a wicked remake of the James Brown classic – maybe even funkier than the original! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Louis JohnsonEvolution (with bonus track) ... CD
Capitol/FTG, 1985. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
A Johnson Brother, working alone – but in some bassy territory that's right up there with his more famous material! The best cuts here have that jazzy, jaunty undercurrent that made the Brothers Johnson sparkle right from the start – a sound that's hard to describe in words, but which is completely charming on record – and which really makes Johnson-styled grooves stand out from the rest! Other numbers bring in the beats a bit more, and turn up the guitars – showcasing perhaps a bit more of Louis' ego in the music, which is no surprise for a solo set like this – and guest vocals are by Denise Wise, and Tony Haynes – the latter of whom delivers a rap on the cut "Midnight". Other numbers include "Our Love", "Might As Well Make Love", "I Tried", "A Touch Of Class", "I Wanna Take You Away", and "Your Vain & Shallow Love". CD also features the bonus cut "Kinky (extended 12" mix)". CD

Chairmen Of The Board feat Ken KnoxWords Left Unsaid ... CD
MoPhilly, 2017. New Copy ... $8.99
Wonderful contemporary work from the legendary Chairmen Of The Board – not exactly the same version of the group that climbed the charts at the start of the 70s, but one that definitely gets their spirit completely right! The album's a recent recording, but it features plenty of vintage talent on board – including the Philly songwriting team of the Steals Brothers, and Detroit soul legend McKinley Jackson on production work – handling things with an approach that really reminds us of the kind of group soul albums they cut back in the day! Ken Knox is the lead here, with a very different style than that of General Johnson – and in a way, the album's maybe thought of best as a criss-cross between classic Philly group and Detroit modes, rather than just another Chairmen Of The Board set. Titles include "Each Morning I Wake Up", "Words Left Unsaid", "No One Else", "I'm Ready Willing & Able", "Get Your Lovin", "All I Need Is You Tonight", and "Get Your Lovin (DJ mix)". CD

Kenny WellingtonFree Spirit ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
A fantastic album from trumpeter Kenny Wellington – one that shows us that the 70s spirit of artists like Roy Ayers and the Mizell Brothers is alive and well – as long as you know where to look! The record's contemporary, but has a really classic blend of jazz and soul – one that still allows plenty of space for Kenny's soaring solo work, but also has a wonderful focus on sharp rhythms and a righteous overall sound! The balance is no surprise – given that Kenny's got a legacy that goes back to classic work in the groups Central Line, Light Of The World, and Beggar & Co – but this album's way deeper and more powerful than anything Washington gave us back in the day – and features some especially nice work on vocals, by a quartet that's headed up by Augie Johnson, who brings in a vibe that's similar to his music with Side Effect and the LA Boppers. The whole thing's wonderful – righter than most folks sound when they go for a groove like this – and titles include "Heading Home", "Dreaming Of Futures Bright", "Fat Cherry", "Kings For A Day Masters Of The Night", "You Can Run", "E3 Symphony", and "Miles 2 Go".

Various500 Atlantic R&B & Soul Singles Vol 2 – 1965 ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1965. New Copy 2CD ... $48.99
Think you know the sound of Atlantic Records in the 60s? Think again – because this stunning series opens the vault to a huge amount of rare treasures from the legendary label! The package is amazing – and offers up rare tracks that were mostly only issued by Atlantic on singles – including some on the other imprints associated with the company – some by names we never even knew recorded for the label, others by bigger names, but represented here by obscure material that goes way past their hits – and which is ultra cool because of that. There's also a fair bit more deep soul than you might expect from the usual Atlantic mix – tremendous vocals, and often in less hit-heavy modes – which makes the whole thing a great revelation – and just one more reason to bow down and give even more expect to one of the key companies who helped soul music find a home in the 60s. Plus – as if that's not enough – the whole thing comes in a very cool 7" gatefold package – which emphasizes the from-singles nature of the collection. This volume features a whopping 50 tracks – with titles that include "King Of Love" by The Admirals, "Let Our Love Go On" by Music City Soul Brothers, "More Of The Jerk" by Bobby Harris, "Free For All" by The Barracudas, "Can't See You When I Want To" by David Porter, "Sweet Thing" by Gorgeous George, "Peepin" by Solomon Burke, "Ad For Love" by Lee Jackson, "The Record" by Ben E King, "Give You What I Got" by Wendy Rene, "Thank You John" by Willie Tee, "My Lover" by Barbara & The Browns, "It's Just A Matter Of Time" by Merle Spears, "Fancy Free" by Mary Wells, "You Make A Strong Girl Weak" by The Premiers, "Don't Stop Now" by William Bell, "Let's Go Get Stoned" by The Coasters, "Thank You For Helping Me See The Light" by Ted Taylor, "Just One More Day" by Otis Redding, "Do The Duck" by The Autographs, "Boss" by King Curtis, "Try Me Again" by Ted Taylor, "Every Night I See Your Face" by The Music City Soul Brothers, "I Don't Want Trouble" by Barbara & The Browns, "Keep Your Mouth Shut" by Lee Jackson, "It's Nice To Know You" by Rosetta Johnson, and "Dedicated To You" by Willie Tee.

VariousDisco Train 3 ... CD
Universal (Japan), Late 70s/1980s. Used ... $2.99
A sweet ride on the Disco Train – served up in a non-stop mix, built from a selection of classic cuts from the end of the 70s and start of the 80s – all of them some well-remembered gems from the dancefloor! Despite the "disco" in the title, the series also features some great tracks from the years beyond Studio 54 – including a few choice import groovers that played big on American dancefloors, the sort of shifting sounds that took over once the second wave of British invasion hit US clubs after the decline of disco – as well as some big crossover pop tracks that continued the groove well into the 80s. The result is a batch of tracks that's familiar, but presented in a nicely fresh way – and this third volume features a mix of 30 surprising cuts that include "Light Up The Night" by Brothers Johnson, "Word Up" by Cameo, "She's A Super Lady" by Luther Vandross, "Miss Me Blind" by Culture Club, "Upside Down" by Diana Ross, "Dancing Queen" by Abba, "Now That We Found Love" by Heavy D & The Boyz, "Conga" by Gloria Estefan & Miami Sound Machine, "She Talks To Me With Her Body" by The Bar-Kays, "Let The Music Play" by Shannon, "Fascination" by Human League, "Samba De Janeiro" by Bellini, "Mr Saxobeat" by Alexandra Stan, "Telephone Operator" by Pete Shelly, and "Hungry Like The Wolf" by Duran Duran.

VariousSoul On Fire – The Detroit Soul Story 1957 to 1977 (3CD set) ... CD
Soul Time (UK), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99
Not the complete Detroit soul story, but a set that's even more interesting than that – as the huge package looks at a wealth of lesser-known tracks from the farther reaches of the scene – mostly with a focus on the kinds of underground 60s cuts that made the Motor City so great! A good deal of the work here is from the labels of producer Robert West – who's probably best known for the Lu-Pine label singles, but also worked with other imprints too – a number of which are included here in a package that goes out of its way to present tracks that go way past the usual Motown-styled modes! There's a good deal of group soul work here, and many of the numbers are from the earlier part of the decade, and show a soul scene that still had plenty of grit, despite the later famous Detroit production policy. Also, many of the tracks are presented in a way that features two tracks or more by a single artist in a row – as if you're flipping over both sides of a single – and the box has a huge booklet that really details all the music too! There's 86 tracks in all – including some unissued numbers from the 60s – and the package features work by Ed Robinson, Sax Kari, The Conquerors, The Falcons, Marv Johnson, Tornados, Delores Maxwell, Don Juan & The Vulcans, The Minor Chords, The Rayber Voices, The Knight Hawks, The Fourmost, The Corvells, Gene Martin, Mack Rice, Eddie Floyd, Betty Lavette, Tina Marvel, Just Brothers, Eddie King, The Precisions, Tony & Tyrone, and many others! You might know a few of these tracks – but you'll also find plenty more to discover. CD

VariousStax Of Funk – The Funky Truth ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Funky genius from the legendary Stax studios! During the 60s, Stax was well known for their work in the soul music field – turning out hit singles by the likes of Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, and others – but after 1968, when the label finished their deal with Atlantic, they really started getting down and dirty, and hitting on all burners in the funk department. This tasty set features 21 tracks from those exiting years –many of them only ever issued on singles, and a few of them by some of the label's more famous LP artists – but all of them with a nice Memphis funky groove! Titles include "Turn Your Damper Down" by Rufus Thomas, "Broadway Freeze" by Harvey Scales, "Life Is Funky" by Round Robin Monopoly, "The Dryer" by Roy Lee Johnson, "She's My Old Lady Too" by Lee Sain, "Slipped & Tripped" by The Sweet Inspirations, "Brothers & Sisters" by Kim Weston, "Movin Dancer" by Bobby Holley, "Eli's Pork Chop" by Little Sonny, "A Man Never Knows" by Chris & Shack, "Grab A Handful" by Art Jerry Miller, "I'll Kill A Brick (About My Man)" by Hot Sauce, "Watch The Dog That Brings The Bone" by Inez Foxx, "Sock Soul" by The Bar Kays, and "Getting Funky Round Here" by Black Nasty!

VariousSuper Breaks – Essential Funk, Soul & Jazz Samples and Breakbeats ... LP
BGP/Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99 22.99
Way more than just a typical collection of rare funk and soul – as the selections here not only meet the stunningly high standards of the BGP label – but they've also been sampled in more recent years for hip hop records and other contemporary recordings! Essentially, you've got the best of both worlds – vintage funk from the late 60s and early 70s – brought together in a great collection – and work that's gone onto form the blueprint for contemporary urban sounds as well – which means you'll probably recognize some or part of most of these songs from their use in more contemporary recordings. Nearly every cut's been sampled at least more than once – and titles include "Blind Alley" by The Emotions, "Chick A Boom" by Pazant Brothers, "Eva" by Jean Jacques Perry, "Walk Tall" by Cannonball Adderley, "Baby Let Me Take You In My Arms" by Detroit Emeralds, "Bouncy Lady" by Pleasure, "Tramp" by Lowell Fulson, "Take Yo Praise" by Camille Yarbrough, "Thinking Single" by The Counts, "Different Strokes" by Syl Johnson, "Ike's Mood" by Isaac Hayes, "What A Man" by Linda Lynell, and "Smokey Joe's La La" by Googie Rene.

✨✧ Pure EssenceThird Rock/Wake Up (part 1) ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massively funky disco break cut – stretched out over two spacey parts, and served up with a really really wonderful sound! "Wake Up" clicks in from the very first note – snapping drums that let you know the tune's going to be a winner – followed by spacey keys, rough-edged bass, and some wispy lyrics that float around the tune beautifully before the harmonies come into the mix! Think of this one as a funky 45 for the disco crowd – then flip it over to hear the equally-great "Third Rock" – which has more amazing bass, and a tighter, jazzier groove that sounds like Shuggie Otis jamming with Brothers Johnson! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Warner, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best Candi Staton albums from the 70s – recorded for Warner Brothers, but with strong southern production by Rick Hall and the Fame Studios team. The group includes classic Muscle Shoals players like Spooner Oldham, Roger Hawkins, and Jimmy Johnson – and although the record's a bit slicker than earlier efforts, it's still got a much more honest soul sound than some of Candi's other 70s recordings. Lots of good songwriting, too – and titles include "Here I Am Again", "Clean Up America", "A Little Taste Of Love", "As Long As He Takes Care Of Home", "Six Nights & A Day", and "Can't Stop Being Your Fool".

✨✧ VariousStrictly Britxotica – Palais Pop & Locarno Latin ... LP
Trunk (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That couple on the cover's looking pretty darn groovy – and the sound of the record is definitely one to match – the sound of postwar Britain starting to let its hair down, and open up to a lot of new musical ideas! Like the previous volumes of Britxotica, this collection offers up tracks recorded in England, but which draw strong musical inspiration from points around the globe – a bit of Cuba in some rhythms, touches of other Caribbean instrumentation at points, a dash of Pacific exotica, and even some heavier African elements too – all served up in tight, jazzy numbers that never would have been recorded in the London of the previous decade. Titles include "Mambo In Old Lisbon" by Joe Loss, "Dream Talk" by John Warren Orchestra, "Papa Loves Mambo" by Johnson Brothers, "Cha Cha Charlie" by Martinas & His Music, "Besame Mucho" by John Graven Quintet, "Goodness Gracious Me" by Dave Lee, "Americano" by Eddie Calvert, "Cerveza" by Victor Silvester, and "Green Turtle" by Phil Tate.

The set features a couple of fine originals, takes on classics by Freddie Hubbard and Wayne Shorter, a Rodgers & Hart standard and a couple of sly, surprising covers – with the players given plenty of space shine. The band includes Marriott on trumpet & fluegelhorn, Mark Taylor on sax, Bill Anschell on piano & Rhodes, Jeff Johnson on bass, Matt Jorgensen on drums, and vibes by Joe Locke on a couple tunes. Titles include "Take It To The Ozone", "Masqualero", "Spring Is Here", "Little Francis", "Detours Ahead", "Brothers & Sisters", "You Only Live Twice", "Circadian Rhythms" and "Almost Blue"/ CD
