✨✧ BloodstoneDo You Wanna Do A Thing? ... CD
London/Collectors Choice, 1976. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Bloodstone moving into a whole new thing – a funkier groove than before, and one that really points the way towards the group's clubby direction at the end of the 70s! Although best known as a sweet harmony group, Bloodstone shine equally well in this upbeat mode – a territory that's somewhere in a space between the funky Isleys of the 70s, and some of the more soaring, sweeping Philly grooves of The Spinners! A few fragile, mellow moments come into the mix – which helps balance out the sound – and the group get some great east coast soul treatment from arranger Bert DeCoteaux, who co-produced the album with Tony Silvester. Titles include a great version of "Just Like in the Movies", the Ace Spectrum classic – plus the tracks "This is It", "When We're Doin It", "Do You Wanna Do a Thing", "If You Wanna Be My Baby", and "Give Me Your Heart".

✨✧ Johnny BristolBristol's Creme ... CD
Atlantic/Collectors Choice, 1976. Used ... Just Sold Out!
An excellent smooth soul groover from Johnny Bristol! The album has Johnny stepping into a more sophisticated groove than he used on his early 70s albums for MGM – mixing together styles that sound a lot like those used by artists like Leroy Hutson or Leon Ware at the time, a mix of well-produced backings with just the right touch of strings, keyboards, and tight rhythms. Johnny's voice has a bit rootsier quality than you might be used to for this sort of album – which makes for an even more unique sound, especially on the mellower cuts. Tracks include "Do It To My Mind", "Have Yourself A Good Time Thinkin' Bout The Good Times", "You Turned Me On To Love", "I Sho Like Groovin' With Ya", and "She Came Into My Life". Nice one! CD

✨✧ Johnny BristolStrangers ... CD
Atlantic/Collectors Choice, 1978. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Excellent smooth soul from Johnny Bristol – working here in territory that's a lot more sophisticated than his earlier work, in the same vein as smooth modern soul singers like Leroy Hutson, Leon Ware, or Prince Phillip Mitchell! The album's got a sweet warm feel – and the richness of the songwriting and vocals make us wonder why Johnny wasn't a bigger star on his own – because each new track is a gem, and the album's got a quality level to match the best of the biggest names of the 70s! However, it's also gems like this that keep us digging through the history of soul music – looking under the surface of the big stars to find excellent work from "almost rans" like Johnny! Cuts include "Strangers In The Dark Corners", "I'm Waiting On Love", "When The Fire Is Burning", "If You Ever Need Somebody", "You Can't Have Love (Without Complications)", and "She's So Amazing". CD

✨✧ SandpipersGuantanamera/Sandpipers ... CD
A&M/Collectors Choice, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Dreamy pop from one of the greatest groups on A&M! The Sandpipers were a spooky male trio who hit big with their rendition of the title track to "Guantanamera" – a lovely Latin-tinged ditty that was done in a style that drew on the sounds of groups like The Four Freshmen or The Hi-Los, but which was also infused with a Sunset Strip late 60s sense of ennui and marshmellowy pop wonder. The 24 tracks on the CD are a great place to start with the group's music, and they offer a grea tmix of hit tunes and more obscure numbers – including "Angelica", "What Makes You Dream, Pretty Girl?", "Bon Soir Dame", "The French Song", "For Baby", "Cast Your Fate To The Wind", "Things We Said Today", "Glass", "Try To Remember", and "Rain Rain Go Away".

VariousGolden Torch – Tunstall, Stoke-On-Trent 1969 to 1973 ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
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.

VariousHarmony Of The Soul – Vocal Groups 1962 to 1977 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 18.99
An incredible collection based around one of our favorite styles of soul music ever – the smooth, mellow male group soul approach that flourished strongly in the late 60s and early 70s – as kind of a more mature, sophisticated take on earlier doo wop modes! Like the previous format, the approach here is very heavy on vocal interplay – but never in a mode that's too overdone, nor filled with tricks and turns – and which instead has the quartet or quintet voices coming together in these completely sublime ways – gliding, stepping, and mellow-grooving along – in an assortment of tracks that are all pretty darn rare, and which includes nine tracks that appear here for the first time ever! The sound quality is wonderful, and the notes are very detailed – and the whole thing's way better than any sort of dodgy package that group soul collectors usually have to settle for – done in the same approach as the In Perfect Harmony series on Kent. Titles include "For The Rest Of My Days" by The Pretenders, "Why Can't It Be" by The Windjammers, "Girl Girl Girl" by The Determinations, "I Destroyed Your Love (part 1)" by Special Delivery, "Send My Baby Back" by San Francisco TKOs, "Where Or When" by The Superbs, "Shady Lady" by Choice Of Colors, "Whatcha Gonna Do Baby" by The Lovers, "Let Me Take Care Of Your Heart" by The Smith Brothers, "Without A Word" by The MMs & The Peanuts, and "Crying Bitter Tears" by The Steelers.
