DelegationIn Love's Time – The Delegation Story 1976 to 1983 ... CD
Big Break (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99
A career-spanning look at the music of Delegation – one of the few UK soul groups of the 70s who could go head-to-head with the best American acts of the time! Delegation have this razor-sharp style that almost prefaces 80s groove – a mode that was born in the disco generation, but which is much leaner overall – and really well-suited to the vocal approach of the trio – who themselves are maybe tighter and hipper than a good deal of their contemporaries! By the time the 70s were drawing to a close, Delegation had really grown into something wonderful – and you'll hear a great evolution in sound and style on this massively-packed set – which includes early work for the State label, plus bigger sides for Ariola and Mercury – including a few single mixes too. 33 titles in all – with tracks that include "Turn On To City Life", "12th House", "It's Your Turn (12" mix)", "Heartache No 9 (12" mix)", "Oh Honey (12" mix)", "Stand Up", "Sho Nuff Sold On You", "Let Me Take You To The Sun", "Mr Heartbreak", "Gonna Bring The House Down", "Feels So Good", "Dance Prance Boogie", "Singing (12" mix)", "I Figure I'm Out Of Your Life", "I Wantcha Back", "Tell Her", "Welcome To My World", "We Can Make It", and "Someone Oughta Write A Song".

DelegationPromise Of Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
State/Big Break (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
The classic first album from Delegation – a great male soul trio from the late 70s, and one who sound great on both sweet mellow tunes and more upbeat ones! Delegation have a sound that's quite unique, especially on this album – a groove with slightly tropical traces on some numbers, and a way of putting over a tune that borrows a bit from the earlier east coast harmony scene, but which wraps things up in a completely different style of production. The balance is hard to describe accurately, but it's definitely a standout for the time – and a real maturation of an earlier male soul group mode. Titles here include the famous break track "Oh Honey", plus "The Promise Of Love", "Mr Heartbreak", "Where Is The Love", "Soul Trippin", and "Let Me Take You To The Sun". CD features new mastering – and bonus tracks – including "Love Is Like A Fire", "Honey I'm Rich", "Baby You're My Mystery", "Oh Honey (12" mix)", and "It Only Happens When I Look At You". CD

✨✧ DelegationDelegation ... LP
Mercury, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet bouncy groover – one of the rare albums of modern soul cut by the group Delegation! The group in this incarnation are a trio – Ray Patterson, Ricky Bailey, and Bruce Dunbar on vocals – stripped-down harmonically, a perfect fit for the album's groove-heavy arrangements. The album's got the same warm finish, with a touch of jazz, that you might find in some of the Arista modern soul albums from the same era – infused with a bit more of a club approach on a few of the more uptempo cuts. Titles include "Blue Girl", "Heartache No 9", "One More Step To Take", "Sho Nuff Sold On You", "Darlin", "You & I", "Stand Up", and "Put A Little Love On Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has ring & edge wear.)

Paul ChambersChambers' Music – A Jazz Delegation From The East (Score pressing) ... LP
Jazz West/Score, 1956. Very Good ... $84.99
Great early work from one of the hippest bassists of his generation! Paul Chambers cut this obscure little album in LA, featuring a "jazz delegation from the east" that included Philly Joe Jones on drums and John Coltrane on tenor – plus pianist Kenny Drew, who had already been working on the west coast – all in a style that's much more relaxed and stretched-out than most other jazz recorded in LA at the time! The album is one of the earliest small group sessions with Coltrane, and it's a very spare batch of tracks that lead off with Chambers' amazing work on bass – but which also feature some incredible early work from Trane – very raw and loud in the mix, with a lot more bluesiness than you'd expect – and we mean that in a good way! Titles include "Dexterity", "Visitation", "John Paul Jones", and "Eastbound". LP, Vinyl record album
(Score pressing. Cover looks great overall, save for a light age stain on the top seam & a small split on the bottom seam.)

✨✧ Eddie Lockjaw Davis with Al SmithBlues Shout (aka Hear My Blues) ... LP
Prestige, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $7.99
Vocalist Al Smith is backed by Eddie Lockjaw Davis' group with Shirley Scott on organ – making for a hip little set that's got a rougher edge than most of the other vocal albums on Prestige. The label delegation for this one was Prestige's Bluesville imprint, but that's not exactly right either, as Al's got a more sophisticated sound, and is more jazz-based in some of his singing – ala Jimmy Witherspoon or Eddie Vinson – than other singers on that label. Titles include "I'll Be Alright", "Night Time Is The Right Time", "Come On Pretty Baby", "Tears In My Eyes", and "Never Let Me Go". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing.)
