✨✧ DelegationIn Love's Time – The Delegation Story 1976 to 1983 ... CD
Big Break (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
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".

DelegationOh Honey/Promise Of Love – Soul Trippin ... 12-inch
Shadybrook, 1977. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Classic 12" version of this one! "Oh Honey" is a killer, with a great spacey soul sound, and a monster sample on the intro. This version is 6 minutes long – a real treat! 12-inch, Vinyl record

DelegationPromise Of Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
State/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy ... About August 25, 2017
The classic first album from Delegation – a great male soul trio from the late 70s, and one who sounds 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

✨✧ DelegationDelegation II ... LP
Mercury, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
Delegation really hold onto their groove in this rock-solid second set – an album that burns with vibrant energy right from the start – but all in ways that are really a cut above the usual uptempo soul of the time! Rhythms are a key part of the sound, but it's the trio's vocals that really hold us rapt – a warmly glowing approach to the lyrics, and one that still keeps things plenty soulful, even when tunes are upbeat, catchy, and very firmly aimed at the dancefloor! These guys were never huge at the time, but they've got a near-perfect sound throughout – a sense of funk that rivals some of the large-member ensembles, and a warmth with their vocals that matches some of the solo acts of the period. Titles include the sublime "In Love's Time", which has a great Earth, Wind & Fire kind of groove – plus "Singing", "Feels So Good", "In The Night", "Gonna Keep My Eyes On You", "12th House", "Turn On To City Life", and "I Wantcha Back". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Paul ChambersChambers' Music – A Jazz Delegation From The East ... CD
Blue Note, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". Plus, the CD also seems to include a few bonus titles from an additional 1956 session with Coltrane! CD

VariousLegacy Of Electronic Funk (3CD set – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sony (Germany), Early 80s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $12.99
Way more than just the electronic funk you might know from the chart-topping groups of the 80s – as this sweet little set digs way deeper, and comes up with some rare mixes and single versions too! The set list is superb – and almost stands as a reintroduction to the genre – as the groups are ones you'll definitely know, but represented by some more obscure cuts – a wonderfully well-chosen set list that really matches the longer length of the package! Titles include "Show Me" by Glenn Jones, "It's Your Turn (extended)" by Delegation, "Searching For The Lady" by New Horizons, "Coast To Coast" by Plush, "You Wouldn't Have To Work At All" by Michael Henderson, "Programmed For Love (12" ext)" by Roy Ayers, "B Boys (12" mix)" by Nona Hendryx, "Are You With Me" by Isley Brothers, "Cover Girl (12" version)" by Johnny Kemp, "Singlehanded (ext)" by Haywoode, "Crimes Of Passion" by Oattes Van Schaik, "Who's Getting It Now (12" version)" by Chocolate Milk, "Thinking Of You (European edit)" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Beat Wise" by Herbie Hancock, "Step By Step (ext rmx)" by Jeff Lorber, "Dial My Number (ext dance)" by Pauli Carman, "Happy (ext version)" by Surface, "Your Spell" by Bobby Glover, "Heaven Sent You (12" mix)" by Stanley Clarke, and "Release The Beast" by Breakwater.
