Deon JacksonLove Makes The World Go Round ... CD
Atlantic/Collectors Choice, 1966. New Copy ... $5.99 11.98
Great stuff from one of our favorite soul vocalists of the 60s! We love Deon Jackson – we love his sweetly honest vocal style, we love his songs, and we love the great production he gets from the legendary Ollie McLaughlin! This album is the only one he ever cut – and it's a masterpiece all the way through! Ollie's production mixes some wonderful lilting qualities with rollicking hard soul – it's a far-reaching approach that works incredibly well with Deon's unique approach to the vocals! Includes the super-hit "Love Makes The World Go Round" and a charming uptown soul take on "King Of The Road", plus "Come Back Home", "1-2-3", "You Said You Love Me", "SOS", "Love Is What You Make It" and "Hush Little Baby".

Margie JosephHear The Words, Feel The Feeling ... CD
Cotillion/Collectors Choice, 1976. Used ... $6.99
Margie Joseph's really hitting on all burners here – thanks to sublime production from Lamont Dozier, working at the height of his mid 70s powers! Joseph's earlier deep soul vocals are given a nice sense of focus and righteous energy from Dozier's production – a fullness that somehow makes her sound almost better than before, with that mix of professionalism and personal presence that Lamont was laying down on his own great albums. Most of the rhythms are in a mellow midtempo mode – never too aimed at the clubs, but nicely picked up and smoothed out a bit from Joseph's earlier work – and sort of given that Detroit "umph" that rose to prominence in the early 70s HDH generation. Titles include "Didn't I Tell You", "Hear The Words Feel The Feeling", "Prophecy", "All Cried Out", "Feeling My Way", "I Get Carried Away", "Why'd You Lie", and "Something To Fall Back On". CD
Also available Hear The Words, Feel The Feeling ... LP 2.99

Margie JosephSweet Surrender ... CD
Atlantic/Collectors Choice, 1974. Used ... $7.99
Margie Joseph gets a hipper treatment than on earlier records – a mix of east coast styles that adds in some Philly and early modern mellow arrangements, both of which provide a great contrast to Margie's southern-tinged vocals! The approach here is great – a fulling up and fleshing out of Joseph's initial promise – with strong arrangements from Arif Mardin, focused around smaller combo backing by players who include Bernard Purdie on drums, Richard Tee on keyboards, and Norman Harris on guitars. The groove is nice and lean on the bottom, but Margie's vocals are augmented by a brace of backing singers – Judy Clay, Cissy Houston, and others – all of whom create a sense of interplay that's similar to Aretha Franklin with The Sweet Inspirations on earlier records. But Margie's also upfront in the mix on most numbers – singing personally, and somewhat intimately with an easygoing sense of soul. Titles include Margie's own "Ridin' High", Paul Kelly's "Come Lay Some Lovin On Me" and "Come With Me", Norman Harris' "(Strange) I Still Love You", and a great version of Stevie Wonder's "To Know You Is To Love You".

Dionne WarwickAnyone Who Had A Heart ... CD
Scepter/Collectors Choice, 1963. Used ... $5.99
Can 60s pop get any better than this? It's hard to think so – given the near-perfect sound of this album, and its unique blend of soul, vocal, and mainstream modes! The album's only the second in the career of Dionne Warwick, but she's already at the top of her game – singing with a sense of grace and poise that's simply tremendous, and getting some equally great backing from a young Burt Bacharach – who himself co-wrote most of the tunes here with Hal David. There's a sense of completeness to the record that few other pop albums of the time could boast – a mature, thoughtful presentation of the material that certainly set a new standard for many artists to come! Titles include "Anyone Who Had A Heart", "Don't Make Me Over", "Getting Ready For The Heartbreak", "Any Old Time Of Day", "Mr Heartbreak", "Put Yourself In My Place", and "Please Make Him Love Me".

✨✧ Duke PearsonDedication! ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare pre-Blue Note gem from pianist Duke Pearson – originally recorded in 1961 for the short-lived Jazzline label! The set appears here in a short-lived 1969 incarnation from Prestige – issued, no doubt, to cash in on Pearson's growing fame at Blue Note – and the record's a good fit for the label, as it's got a tight, right, and in-the-pocket soul jazz energy that's really great! Pearson's leading a group that includes Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Pepper Adams on baritone, and the lesser-known Willie Wilson on trombone – a great player, but one who was mostly a friend of Pearson, and only ever made this one appearance on record! Tracks have a lively well-crafted sound – mixing modern and soul jazz idioms nicely – and titles include "Lex", "Blues For Alvina", "Apothegm", and "Minor Mishap". CD

✨✧ VariousGolden Torch – Tunstall, Stoke-On-Trent 1969 to 1973 ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hotbed of soul tracks that played big at the legendary Golden Torch – one of the most famous hotspots for Northern Soul on the British scene at the end of the 60s! But as with the best Brit clubs of its type, the music here is all American – a choice collection of under-discovered soul gems from the US – of the sort that UK collectors were already turning up decades ago, then unleashing on dancefloors who were ready to devour music that had hardly gotten any sort of a notice back home! The track list is great – classic enough to be remembered well from these days, but still pretty darn obscure to most fans of American soul of the 60s – 14 smoking tracks that include "Blowing Up My Mind" by The Exciters, "Slide Tomatoes" by Just Brothers, "Compared To What" by Mr Floods Party, "Quick Change Artist" by The Soul Twins, "Walk Like A Man" by Johnny Moore, "Keep On Keepin On" by NF Porter, "Crackin Up Over You" by Roy Hamilton, "You Don't Want Me No More" by Major Lance, "I Worship You Baby" by The Glories, "The Slow Fizz" by The Sapphires, and "Bok To Bach" by Father's Angels.
