✨✧ Wilton FelderWe All Have A Star ... LP
ABC, 1978. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Solo sounds from Crusaders reedman Wilton Felder – a really great set that's very much in the best vibe of his larger group at the time – yet one that also offers up a stronger focus on Wilton's sublime solo work on tenor! The album's got plenty of Crusaders help on board – given that Stix Hooper and Joe Sample produced the set along with Wilton – and the vibe's a wonderful blend of electric backings, with especially great keyboard lines, and Felder's well-phrased saxophone lines over the top! A few cuts feature vocals – sung by Angela Bryant or Debbie Demoia Ross – and titles include "We All Have A Star", "I Know Who I Am", "The Cycles Of Time", "Why Believe", "Ride On", and "You & Me & Ecstasy".

Johnny Otis & FriendsWatts Funky ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99 22.99
Some of the greatest funky work you could ever hope to find by Johnny Otis! The package brings together tracks recorded by Johnny in his fantastic post-R&B years – the late 60s and 1970s, when he was scrappling around a variety of small labels, but also getting the chance to use that freedom to cut some incredibly great work! The spirit of the CD retains all the great feel of Johnny's funky live show – as it runs through a variety of different artists, from hip instrumentalists to sock-soul divas to Johnny himself, who's still sounding pretty darn funky at the time! There's some killer material here that makes the package an instant "must-have" for fans of heavy heavy funk – and titles include "Watts Breakaway" by Johnny Otis, "Country Girl" by The Johnny Otis Show, "But I Ain't No More (GSTSKDTS)" by Vera Hamilton, "Spells & Incantations" by Debbie Lyndsey, "Cool Ade" by Preston Love, "Funky Disco Boogie" by Demar & Carla, "I Don't Understand It" by Ice Water Slim & The Fourth Floor, "If You'd Be Mine" by Shuggie Otis, "Comin At Ya Baby" by Johnny Otis, "Jaws" by Johnny Otis, "Hey Boy! I Want You" by Barbara Morrison with the Johnny Otis Show, "You Got To Do It Right" by Willie Jitterbug Webb, and the killer "The Humpty Dump" by The Vibrettes! Also features the previously unreleased "Miss Pretty" by Shuggie Otis! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Eddie Parker/Debbie Taylor & The HesitationsBut If You Must Go/All That I Have ... 7-inch
Kent/Deep Soul (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $9.99
A beautiful deep soul ballad from Eddie Parker – penned by Lorraine Chandler and Jack Ashford, and done here with this slow-tripping groove that really lets Parker open up and soar on the lyrics! The tune's wonderful – very majestic, while heartbreaking at the same time – and it's backed by an unreleased Debbie Taylor tune – another slow-burner taken from the vaults during the time she was recording for the GWP label! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Oscar PetersonAffinity ... LP
Verve, 1962. Very Good ... $4.99
Affinity – a beautiful word to describe the Peterson trio on this set – as at the time of the recording, Oscar's piano was perfectly matched with the bass of Ray Brown and the drums of Ed Thigpen! The album's got a simple genius that's hard to describe adequately – especially as the Peterson approach has been copied by so many other players over the years. Suffice it to say that the tunes are a masterpiece of simple, elegant soul – understated but never under-performed – on a set list that includes "Six & Four", "Waltz For Debbie", "Gravy Waltz", "This Could Be The Start Of Something Big", and "Baubles Bangles & Beads".

Debbie PoryesDebbie Poyres Trio ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $8.99
Pianist Debbie Poryes works here with a Dutch trio formed right after her arrival on that scene – a nicely-balanced group that really respects Debbie's sensitive touch on the keys, and seems to make her subtle sounds come out even more than they might in the setting! Poryes has an approach that's on the mellower side of lyrical – kind of a post-Bill Evans approach, but even more subtle overall – yet one that's also very striking in its subtlety – as the lean choices of notes show just how far and free jazz piano had come by this time, but in ways that could still swing and stay inside. The group features Hein Van De Geyn on bass and Hans Eykenaar on drums – and titles include "For Brad", "Sweet Georgie Fame", "Holland", "Foolish Door", and "My Romance". CD

Sa-Ra Creative PartnersNuclear Evolution – The Age Of Love (plus bonus disc) ... CD
Ubiquity, 2009. Used 2 CDs ... $8.99
Cosmic hip hop soul from Om'Mas Keith, Shafiq Husayn & Taz Arnold – a long awaited proper full length from the Sa-Ra Creative Partners – and an excellent one! Sa-Ra's signature spacey funk & beatcraft, hypnotic and boundless grooves have been critical behind the scenes for some of their superstar friends, most famously Kanye West and Erykah Badu, but Sa-Ra's own records haven't gotten them to mainstream hugeness. The mainstream's loss is the indie scene's gain, though, as this set for Ubiquity as all we hoped it would be and more. The beats and bass are insistent, headnodding hip hop funk, with spacier textures galore, and the tunes range from an astral hip hop soul to jazzy funk, and the roster of guests is as deep as Sa-Ra's music – from Erykah Badu, to other female vocalists such as Debi Nova, Noni Limar & Rozzi Dame bringing the sweeter vibes, plus legendary jazz sax great Gary Bartz and his quartet! Tracks include "Spacefruit" with Debbie Nova, "Dirty Beauty" with Erykah Badu, "Traffika", "Bitch Baby", "Love Czars", "Gemini's Rising" with Rozzi Dame, "Love Today", "Can I Get U Hi?", "Cosmic Ball" with the Gary Bartz Quartet and more. CD version includes a bonus disc with 6 more tracks: "Spaceways Theme", "Just Like A Baby", "Double Dutch (Co Co Pops)" feat Aazable, "Death Of A Star (Supernova)", "Powder Bump" and "Hangin By A String".

VariousAnswer To Everything – Girl Answer Songs Of The 60s ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A great gimmick, and a great little collection – a batch of all-female "answer" songs to hits sung by bigger male artists of the 60s! As was common back in that decade, if one artist issued a hit, another might piggy-back off its popularity by recording an answer song – a tune that sometimes made fun of the famous numbers, or other times offered up a different side to the story – such as the female perspective to the tale told by the male singer in the lyrics. This 28 track package is an amazing array of lesser-known answer songs – tunes that responded to hits like "Runaround Sue", "King Of The Road", "This Diamond Ring", "Tell Laura I Love Her", "Walk On By", "I Like It Like That", and many more familiar songs – all supported with notes on the tunes and singers. Titles include "Queen Of The House" by Jody Miller, "I'm No Run Around" by Ginger Davis & The Snaps, "Don't Let Him Shop Around" by Debbie Dean, "They Took You Away I'm Glad I'm Glad" by Josephine, "I'll Just Walk On By" by Margie Singleton, "Duchess Of Earl" by The Pearlettes, "Son In Law" by The Blossoms, "I'll Be There" by Damita Jo, and "I'll Believe It When I See It" by The Sierras.

VariousDaniel Wang's Personal West End Megamix ... CD
West End/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $24.99
We're not sure how "personal" this mix might be – given that it's on a CD for commercial sale – but we can say that it's plenty great, and a wonderful collection of rare gems from the catalog of disco powerhouse West End Records! Daniel Wang embraces all the upbeat, quick-jamming qualities of the label right from the start – and serves up a blistering non-stop mix of cuts that touches on many of the best moments from West End – cuts that both have soulful vocals soaring over the top, and some mighty heavy rhythms on the bottom! Titles include "Speak Well (Tom Moulton 12" mix)" by Philly USA, "Let's Go Dancin (club version)" by Sparque, "Give Your Body Up To The Music (Larry Levan 12" mix)" by Billy Nichols, "Mary Hartman Mary Hartman (inst)" by Sounds Of Inner City, "Heat You Up (melt down mix)" by Shirley Lites, "Ride On The Rhythm" by Mahogany, "Can't You Feel It" by Michele, "I Was Born This Way (Tom Moulton 12" mix)" by Carl Bean, "Another Man" by Barbara Mason, and "Searchin For Some Lovin" by Debbie Trusty.

VariousGWP – NYC – TCB ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A long-overdue tribute to one of the hippest labels in 60s soul – the short-lived but excellent GWP label, home to a flurry of great indie singles at the end of the decade! GWP was a key precursor to styles that would show up more strongly in later years on east coast indies like All Platinum/Stang and Perception/Today – and the company also employed some great studio talents who would emerge even more strongly on these other labels – like Ed Bland, George Kerr, and Ray Dahrouge, all key figures in soul production at the start of the 70s. The CD does a great job of pulling together the richness of the GWP sound – a mix of uptown soul, sock-soul, sweet soul, and some deeper soul numbers that really round out the sound of the set nicely. 24 tracks in all – including "He's What I Need" by Little Rose Little, "I've Been Down For So Long" by Benny Gordon, "Let's Prove Them Wrong" by Debbie Taylor, "I Don't Know How" by The Persians, "No Defense" by Bobby Penn, "Gotta Find A Way" by The Hesitations, "Heaven's Will" by Alice Clark, "Keep Your Love Warm" by Lilly Fields, "Doin The Gittin Up" by The Devonnes Band, and "I'm Ready" by Milton Bennett.

✨✧ VariousPhil's Spectre 3 – A Third Wall Of Soundalikes ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... About September 1, 2016 (delayed)
Possibly the grooviest entry so far in this excellent exploration of 60s pop and the long-reaching influence of producer Phil Spector at the time! As with other volumes, this one features Spector sound-alikes – tracks that heavily borrow from his classic "wall of sound" techniques, and apply them on a range of 60s pop styles – from girl group vocals, to soul, rock, and more! The "culprits" in these acts include some Spector associates and other well-known music forces at the time – arrangers and producers who include Sonny Bono, Jack Nitzsche, Bergen White, Howard Farber, Quincy Jones, Gene Page, Bill Baker, Claus Ogerman, and even Bill Medley – who some could say learned his craft from Phil himself. Titles include "Just A Fool" by Jerry Ganey, "Down By The Ocean" by George N Sonny Sands, "He's Mine" by Alice Wonderland, "Let The Good Times Roll" by Judy Henske, "He Really Loves Me" by Debbie Rollins, "Goodbye Baby" by Maureen Gray, "Yes Sir That's My Baby" by The Satisfactions, "That's The Way" by The Kit Kats, "Look Of Love" by Leslie Gore, "Sweet Sweet Love" by Bobby Sheen, "Cause I Love Him" by Alder Ray, "Gee I'm Sorry Baby" by The Sapphires, and "In My Lonely Room" by Martha & The Vandellas.

✨✧ BlondieAutoamerican ... LP
Chrysalis, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Out of New York rock and roll ideas, Debbie Harry decides to pilfer the subcultures to make her sound a bit more interesting! Fortunately for us, she got some help from guitar maestro Chris Stein on the track "Rapture" – and Stein's real interest in the music gave it a stone old school groove that's held up pretty well over the years! More famously, Harry went for a bit of reggae on the track "The Tide Is High" – taking Duke Reid's original, and turning it into a global hit! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Barbara Jean EnglishSo Many Ways ... LP
Althia, 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
Great work from one of the less-remembered stars of the east coast indie soul scene of the early 70s. Barbara Jean English has a style that's partly in the mode of harder soul singers like Linda Jones or Debbie Taylor, but she's also equally at home with more sophisticated material – which she does in a style that's a bit like Nancy Wilson, but with more of the rougher soul overtones of the All Platinum crew. The album was arranged by Lou Toby and Bernie Hoffer, and it's got some compelling original tracks that push past the usual sort of material you get on an album like this. Barbara really lays it on the line on tracks like "All This", "I'm Living A Lie", "Lil Baby", "Danger Signs", and "So Many Ways To Die". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ed PiskorHip Hop Family Tree Monthly #3 ... Book
Fantagraphics, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The comic series that tells the tale of the early days of hip hop – but presents the story in the style of a Marvel Comics tabloid from the 70s! Ed Piskor's approach to the material is really unique – and he extrapolates historical details into an extended narrative of the scenes with colorful comic-style images. The monthly series anthologizes the stories in a way that's even truer to Piskor's comic book influences than the graphic novel collections. Amazing! Issue #3 has a funky fresh graffiti trivia question cover – where you can pick the mugshot you think created the first rap gold record. Slick Rick? Debbie Harry? Rammellzee? Tupac? Kurtis Blow? Inside are frames featuring Soul Train, Enjoy Records, Funky Four Plus One, the Sugar Hill scene and more. Book

✨✧ VariousLove & Affection – More Motown Girls ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Stunning soul from the Motown label – a huge amount of tracks that were recorded by the company during their key years in soul music, but which are issued here for the first time ever! The depths of Motown never fail to amaze us – because even though these tracks might have lain in the vaults, they're still better than most of the competition – and not only match some of the bigger cuts by the artists involved, but also shed new light upon the careers of some of the lesser-known female singers in the Motown stable! These aren't throwaway numbers – and instead, the collection's brimming over with wicked Detroit soul groovers from the 60s – 25 tracks in all, supported by some nicely thorough notes on the project and recordings. Titles include "Mr Pride & Mr Gloom" by Connie Haines, "Just Go On Sleeping" by LaBrenda Ben, "Reassure Me That You Love Me" by Brenda Holloway, "Midnight Johnny (early version)" by Liz Lands, "I Can't Make It Without You" by Debbie Dean, "Close My Crying Eyes" by Yvonne Fair, "Forgotten" by Chris Clark, "Lover Man" by Kim Weston, "Check Yourself" by Chris Clark, "The Good Times Are Gone" by Barbara McNair, "Momma Tried To Warn Me" by Oma Heard, "Now That Love Is Gone" by Hattie Littles, "My Love Is Your Love" by Barbara Randolph, "The Things Time Can't Erase" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, and "Mother Tell Me What To Do" by Martha Reeves & The Vandellas.

✨✧ Janice LakersRainbow Lady ... CD
Limetree/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1985. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Janice Lakers is a singer we only know from this one album – but she's a hip vocalist with a very compelling style – one that's very much in the best mode of some of the cooler American jazz singers of the late 70s! The song choices are great – some hipper jazz standards – and she's got a way of opening up with the lyrics that's far different than older vocal modes of the 50s – instead nearer to the territory of artists like Janet Lawson or Judy Roberts. Backing is by a hip trio with Debbie Poryes on piano – who really open up with their own sense of presence on the record, too – and titles include "Waltz For Debby", "Like A Lover", "Falling Grace", "Rainbow Lady", "In Your Own Sweet Way", and a nicely grooving take on "Moondance".
