✨✧ Brass ConstructionConquest ... LP
Capitol, 1985. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pumping bit of 80s soul from Brass Construction – a record that moves pretty strongly away from the horn-heavy style of their roots, yet one that still bubbles along nicely with some sweet dancefloor grooves! Randy Muller seems to keep his focus here on the beats and keyboards – used rightly and tightly, and with the kind of energy you'd find in the indie club scene a few years before – polished up nicely for this mid 80s Capitol release by the group. Titles include "Goodnews", "Modern Touch", "Give & Take", "Comeback", "Zig Zag", "Secret Lover", and "My Place". LP, Vinyl record album

William Parker & The Little Huey Creative Music OrRaincoat In The River Vol 1 – ICA Concert ... CD
Eremite, 1991. Used ... $6.99
William Parker's a player who always adds a lot to an improvisation session, but he's also a hell of a composer, and a visionary leader too – able to work in these large concepts and musical ideas that seem to come off better than most similar work by any of his contemporaries! There's a sense of power and vision to this record that recalls some of the most ambitious projects on Soul Note/Black Saint from the start of the 80s – an ability to mix improvisation with richer shades and group movements – as Parker directs a lineup that includes reeds from Rob Brown, Ori Kaplan, Charles Waters, and Darryl Foster – and trombones from Steve Swell and Alex Lodico, trumpet from Roy Campbell and Richard Rodriguez, and a bit of vocals from Leena Conquest. The performance has a majesty that takes us back to the Arkestra at their best – but the poetic power of the music is also all Parker's own as well. Titles include "Meditation For Two Voices", "Raincoat In The River", "Painter's Celebration", "Mountain/Maintain", and "Anast Crossing The Lake Of Light". CD

William Parker Double QuartetAlphaville Suite – Music Inspired By The Jean Luc Godard Film ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2007. New Copy ... $15.99
A really unusual project from bassist William Parker – a great tribute to the legendary Godard film Alphaville, done with music that's a surprisingly great fit! There's almost a jazz soundtrack feel to the record at points – a bit straighter than usual for Parker, but still with plenty of edge – although other tracks sometimes get a bit more outside and improvisational, making for a really nice balance in the record. The core group features Parker on bass, Rob Brown on alto, Lewis Barnes on trumpet, and Hamid Drake on drums – which is then augmented by two cellos, violin, and viola – shading in the sound nicely. Parker really does a great job of capturing the quick shifts, bold moments, and striking qualities that make Godard's film so great – and titles include "Alphaville Main Theme", "Interrogation", "Alph 60", "Doctor Badguy", "Oceanville Evening", and "Civilization Of Light" – plus two versions of the great track "Natasha's Theme", a spiritual soulful number with vocals by Leena Conquest!

VariousComplete Fame Singles Vol 1 – 1964 to 1967 ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $21.99
Legendary work from one of the greatest soul labels ever – a tiny Alabama imprint that helped bring the Muscle Shoals sound to the masses – thanks to the work of producer Rick Hall, and his crack band of session players! The music here set a whole new standard for soul in the south – and really helped bridge older 50s modes and the new wave of more expressive, more sophisticated singers – an evolution that you'll really hear over the span of the label's complete singles, even in this first volume. A few names here are big – like Jimmy Hughes and Arthur Conley – but there's also some great lesser-knowns that really make the collection great – some singers we never even knew recorded for Fame, and a few session players as stars on their own – like Dann Penn or Spooner Oldham. Titles include "Wish You Didn't Have To Go" by Spooner & The Spoons, "Party Talk" by June Conquest, "She Wants What She Can't Have" by Terry Woodford, "You're Gonna Lose That Girl" by The Villagers, "In The Same Old Way" by Arthur Conley, "You Can't Believe Everything You Hear" by Jimmy Hughes, "The Road Of Love" by Clarence Carter, "Take A Good Look" by James Barnett, "Let Them Talk" by Dann Penn, "A Piece Of My Heart" by Art Freeman, and "Time Will Bring You Back" by Jimmy Hughes. 52 tracks in all – with both a and b-sides too!

✨✧ Donny HathawayNever My Love – The Anthology (4CD set) ... CD
WEA, Early 70s. Used 4CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Don't think "anthology" – think "new musical discovery" – as this amazing package features two full CDs' worth of unreleased music from Donny Hathaway – plus some bonus rare tracks from singles, mono mixes, and key Roberta Flack duets as well! To our ears, the most exciting music comes from the unreleased cuts – work that really goes a long way towards filling out the all-too-short catalog of this legendary soul singer – and a perfect complement to his classic Atlantic Records albums from the 70s. Unreleased studio tracks include "A Lot Of Soul", "Let's Groove", "Latin Time", "Tally Rand", "Sunshine Over Showers", "Don't Turn Away", "Always The Same", "Zyxygy Concerto", "Sands Of Time & Changes", and the instrumental "Brown Eyed Lady" – and the set also features 10 previously unreleased cuts from Donny's famous 1971 run at The Bitter End – live tracks that include "Jealous Guy", "I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know", "Hey Girl", "He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother", "The Ghetto", "Voices Inside", "Sack Full Of Dreams", and "What's Going On". Another CD features great singles – including the rare early duets with June Conquest on "I Thank You Baby" and "Just Another Reason" – plus mono single versions of "This Christmas", "Magnificent Sanctuary Band", "Lord Help Me", and "A Song For You" – as well as a duet with Margie Joseph on "Come Back Charleston Blue", the studio version of "Little Ghetto Boy", and the cuts "Love Love Love", "You Were Meant For Me", "I Believe To My Soul", and "Young Gifted & Black". The final CD features duets with Roberta Flack on 13 tracks that include "Mood", "Back Together Again", "You Are My Heaven", "Be Real Black For Me", "You've Lost That Lovin Feeling", "For All We Know", and "When Love Has Grown". 58 tracks in all – and a sweet package too!

✨✧ VariousCharly's Extraordinary Sensations – 20 Mod Soul Classics ... CD
Charly (UK), Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very nice feel to this one, and more of a 60's soul sound than Charly's other comps. Eddie Piller, of the Acid Jazz label, put togther 20 tracks of rare soul with a 60's "mod" sound to them. The set's got a nice mix of deep soul tracks and uptown charmers – and has none of the northern soul overindulgence that sometimes gets to be too much on thes UK comps. Tracks include "Ride Your Pony" by Betty Harris, "What's This I See" by June Conquest, "(Gonna Be) Good Times" by Gene Chandler, "Groovy" by P.P. Arnold, "I Spy (For The FBI)" by Jamo Thomas, "Lipstick Traces (On A Cigarette)" by Benny Spellman, "What Does It Take (To Win Your Love)" by The Electrifying Cashmeres, "I Hurt On The Other Side" by Sidney Barnes, and "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by Lee Dorsey. Killer grooves, and a great 60's soul feel! CD
