Billy PaulLet 'Em In ... CD
Philadelphia International/CEMA, 1976. Used ... $6.99
Probably not Paul's strongest record, but you can't deny his voice sounds great and we're never ones to argue with Gamble & Huff production. Recorded at Sigma Sound and features arrangements and productions by Dexter Wansel alongside Jack Faith and Gamble & Huff, this album still represents the Philly sound nicely. Includes the title track, a cover of McCartney's "Let 'Em In", "How Good is Your Game", Wansel's "Love Won't Come Easy", "Word Gets Around", and "I Think I'll Stay Home Today." CD

David Brent (Ricky Gervais)Life On The Road ... CD
BBC/Universal (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
A big leap into the musical mind of David Brent – aka the character created by Ricky Gervais for the original UK version of The Office – now off to follow his dream as a singer/songwriter! The music here follows from those last few musical moments that Gervais gave us on the final installment of The Office UK – with maybe a bit less of the sexy soul vibe, and more of an earnest songwriter vibe – with some hilarious attempts at "correct" politics! Make no mistake, this is definitely an album of music – not comedic bits – and the songs are performed and produced at a level that's totally straight – so much so, they almost feel like lost AOR numbers from the late 70s, until you plug into the wit of the lyrics and their delivery by Gervais. Titles include "Spaceman", "Please Don't Make Fun Of The Disableds", "Lady Gypsy", "Native American", "Life On The Road", "Freelove Freeway", "Ain't No Trouble", "Electricity", and "Don't Cry It's Christmas".

Jerry ButlerJerry Butler Sings Assorted Sounds – With The Aid Of Assorted Friends & Relatives ... LP
Mercury, 1971. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of the albums in which Jerry Butler showcases the talents of a new generation of young Chicago soul talents – including Terry Callier, Donny Hathaway, Chuck Jackson (from The Independents, not the New York soul star), and his brother Billy Butler. Billy Butler had already scored big with his own singles on Okeh in the 60s, but Terry, Donny, and Chuck were still emerging soul talents at this time – and it was pretty darn nice of Jerry to give them exposure on a record like this. Proof that The Iceman always was much more than just the simple singer of pop hits that he always gets tagged for – as it was pretty magnanimous of him to share the wealth of his big contract with Mercury, not to mention pretty smart to infuse his career with some good young songwriting talent. The whole record's got a good groovy soul sound, and includes the cuts "How Did We Lose It", "If It's Real What I Feel", "What Is It", and "Do You Finally Need a Friend". LP, Vinyl record album

Ice Man's BandIntroducing The Ice Man's Band ... LP
Mercury, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... $8.99
A pretty great album by The Ice Man's Band – the instrumental group who worked behind Jerry "Iceman" Butler on some of his cool early 70s work. The album's nice and laidback – with some very nice mellow keyboards and smooth dope guitar, and the whole thing's a very nice kicked-back instrumental set. Reggie Burke is on the keys, and the real highlight on here is the group's amazing cover of "People Make the World Go Round", a sample favorite from way back! Also includes "It's Down to That", "To Be Continued", "I Wanna Be Where You Are", and a bunch of Jerry Butler hits. LP, Vinyl record album

Chuck JacksonAny Day Now ... LP
Wand, Early 60s. Good ... $6.99
Beautifully heartbreaking soul from Chuck Jackson – singing here in his early "iceman" style – clearly influenced by Jerry Butler's work on Vee Jay, but also a perfect fit for the uptown soul sound of New York! The title track – "Any Day Now" – is a late night mellow soul classic that never gets old – but the album's also filled with some great fresh numbers that make it a wonderful no-filler set all the way through! Titles include "Angel of Angels", "The Breaking Point", "Just Once", "I Keep Forgettin", and "Who's Gonna Pick Up The Pieces". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Wand pressing. Cover has some wear. Vinyl plays with clicks & crackles.)

Chuck JacksonI Don't Want To Cry/Any Day Now ... CD
Wand/Kent (UK), 1961/1962. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
The start of an amazing legacy in 60s soul – the first two Wand albums from Chuck Jackson, back to back in a single set! First up is I Don't Want To Cry – a real landmark from soul singer Chuck Jackson – part of a unique wave of male vocalists who really took the music to new heights in the 60s! Jackson's got this way of balancing heartbreaking emotion with masculine control – summed up perfectly in the album's title track, then carried forth in a set of other blue-tinged numbers that strike an equal balance! The approach is similar to the best work by Jerry Butler and Walter Jackson – with a similar blend of deep range and sophisticated ideals – and titles include "I Don't Want To Cry", "I Wake Up Crying", "A Man Ain't Supposed To Cry", "Tears On My Pillow", "I Cried For You", "Lonely Teardrops", "Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying", and "In Between Tears" – plus more songs about crying, believe it or not! Next is Any Day Now – beautifully heartbreaking soul from Chuck Jackson – singing here in his early "iceman" style – clearly influenced by Jerry Butler's work on Vee Jay, but also a perfect fit for the uptown soul sound of New York! The title track – "Any Day Now" – is a late night mellow soul classic that never gets old – but the album's also filled with some great fresh numbers that make it a wonderful no-filler set all the way through! Titles include "Angel of Angels", "The Breaking Point", "Just Once", "I Keep Forgettin", and "Who's Gonna Pick Up The Pieces". CD

Chuck JacksonOn Tour/Dedicated To The King!! ... CD
Wand/Kent (UK), 1964/1967. Used ... $4.99
2 of Chuck Jackson's more unusual albums for Wand Records – back to back on one CD! On Tour is a great little live set that has Jackson opening up with a range of more grooves than usual – picking up some jazzy touches on a few songs, moving into Motown on a few others, and returning to his original Iceman groove on the rest. The crowd noise is very up in the mix – and from what we can tell, the album feels more live than the usual "canned" 60s set of this type, bristling with more electricity than we might expect from Chuck! Dedicated To The King is even more unusual – as "The King", in this case, is Elvis – which makes for a very strange album for Jackson! The album has Chuck dropping his Iceman style for a rougher, almost southern soul-styled approach – a mode that would show up more strongly on later albums, and which works surprisingly well with a set of Elvis tunes here! CD features 21 tracks in all – including live takes on "Billie Baby", "Any Other Way", "Stand By Me", "Please Please Please", "Beg Me", "I Don't Want To Cry", "Chuck's Soul Brothers Twist", and "I Wake UP Crying" – plus Elvis tunes "Hound Dog", "Don't Be Cruel", "Love Me Tender", "It's Now Or Never", and "I Forgot To Remember To Forget You".

Walter JacksonOkeh Recordings Vol 3 – Speak Her Name (with previously unreleased tracks) ... CD
Okeh/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
Unbelievably beautiful work – and possibly the greatest album ever from the mighty Walter Jackson! Jackson was one of the best singers to come out of the Chicago soul scene of the 60s, and his Okeh recordings are a perfect example of the city's sophisticated approach to Iceman soul – as perfected by Walter, Jerry Butler, and (later) Garland Green. The arrangements are by Riley Hampton, and they have a cold fragile beauty that lingers somewhere between a Scott Walker album and Riley's earlier work with Lorez Alexandria – and the no-filler selection of songs is one of Jackson's best ever– a range of work that really show his deep talents, and his maturing approach to a tune – proud, powerful, and a new level of adult sophistication in soul. Titles include the amazing title cut "Speak Her Name" – plus "Corner In The Sun", "My One Chance To Make It", "It's An Uphill Climb To The Bottom", and "Not You". This expanded CD makes the original album ever better – and adds in a full batch of 10 bonus tracks – some of which are unissued, others of which are rare singles from Jackson's later Okeh years, plus rare Epic sides. Bonus titles include "No Butterflies", "Ad Lib", "The Look Of Love", "The Bed", "Forget The Girl", "My Ship Is Coming In", "Road To Ruin", and "Just One Smile". CD

✨✧ Sun RaSolar-Myth Approach Vol 1 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
BYG/Actuel, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Very dark stuff from Sun Ra – one of his records that received wider circulation than most of the Saturn releases of the 70s, and a set that maintains a pretty sharp edge overall! Ra plays some killer keyboards – moog, spacemaster, and acoustic piano – often with these really eerie tones – and other players include Kwame Hadi on trumpet, Akh Tal Ebah on space dimension mellophone, Ali Hassan on trombone, Marshal Allen and Danny Davis on alto and flute, John Gilmore on tenor, and Pat Patrick on baritone – and the whole group vocalizes at points, joined by other singers who include June Tyson and Art Jenkins. Recorded at the Sun studios in New York in 1970, the album features a number of shorter tracks like "Spectrum", "The Satellites Are Spinning", "Seen III, Took 4", "Adventures Of Bugs Hunter", and the longer tracks "Legend" and "The Realm Of Lightning".

VariousHeart of Southern Soul Vol 3 – The Flame Burns On ... CD
Excello/Ace (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
An extremely hip batch of southern soul from the start of the 70s – tracks that show the real growth in the genre as the decade approached – a move into deeper, more sophisticated forms that really helped break past the hit cliches of the 60s! All of the work here is from the Excello family of labels – including Mankind and A-Bet Records – all imprints dedicated to unearthing and exposing some of the deeper talents on the southern soul scene at the time – with fresh production styles that really gave the singers a chance to open up on the tunes. Most numbers are in a mellow or midtempo mode – presented with a nice degree of polish in the instrumentation, but never in a smooth or slick way. The package features great notes on these musical treasures – and the CD features a total of 22 tracks that include "I'm Going To Win Her Love" by Bobby Powell, "Bad Water" by Doris Duke, "Daddy's Home" by 5 Degrees Fahrenheit, "Tears (I Shed For You)" by Big T & The Pacemakers, "The Next Man" by Jean Stanback, "Got To Travel On" by Brooks O'Dell, "For The Good Times" by The Seventh Wonder, "Ten Carat Fool" by Jimmy Jules, "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye" by Rose Davis, "Sun Comes Up" by Freddie North, "I'm Going To Try You One More Time" by Bobby Powell, "This Is My Chance" by Art Gentry, and "Lovin' On Back Streets" by Freddie North.

✨✧ Jerry ButlerBest Of Jerry Butler (Mercury) ... LP
Mercury, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Seminal work by one of our favorite soul singers of all time! Jerry first came to fame with The Impressions and on his own in the early 60s – singing dark moody easy tunes that well earned him the nickname of "Iceman". In the late 60s, though, he moved onto Mercury where he broke through even bigger with some excellent early production by Gamble & Huff, which took Jerry to a whole new level, and which gave his work a swinging soul groove that worked great with his vocals. This set compiles some of the best moments of the Mercury years – including "Never Give You Up", "Lost", "Moody Woman", "Mr Dream Merchant", "Hey Western Union Man", and "Only The Strong Survive".

✨✧ CookersCast The First Stone ... CD
Plus Loin (France), 2010. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A brilliant set from The Cookers – a combo that includes the mighty Billy Harper on tenor sax, and who step out here with a soaringly brilliant sound that recalls some of Harper's best material in recent years! Yet Billy's only the tip of the iceberg, as all players are great – truly the cookers promised by the name– including Eddie Henderson and David Weiss on trumpets, Craig Handy on alto sax, George Cables on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Billy Hart on drums – plus some key guest work from Azar Lawrence on tenor and soprano sax too! The rhythms are perfect for the record – modally comping, with just the right sort of searching energy to inspire the most spiritual performances from the players – and titles include great versions of Billy Harper's "Cast The First Stone", "Croquet Ballet", and "The Seventh Day", – plus "Think On Me", "Peacemaker", "The Chief", and "Looking For The Light".

Sweet smooth soul from Walter Jackson – recording here in his later years, with a style that's a lot more modern than his classic 60s recordings for Okeh, but still surprisingly nice, and a great evolution of his "Iceman" soul sound! The set features Eugene Record's great title cut, "Tell Me Where It Hurts", plus a version of Stevie Wonder's "If It's Magic", a remake of "At Last" – and the tunes "What If I Walked Out On You", "When I See You", and "Living Without You".
