Detroit EmeraldsDo Me Right/You Want It You Got It (plus bonus track) ... CD
Westbound (UK), 1971/1972. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A pair of killers back to back on a single CD – two Westbound albums by The Detroit Emeralds! Do Me Right is a gem of a record from the mighty Detroit Emeralds – a group who are really finding a new 70s vibe here, while still holding onto all the rich harmonies they developed on their early singles! The trio work here together with a fluid sound and the kind of harmonies you might have heard from The Impressions a few years before – but they also get a really unique groove that befits their presence on Detroit's legendary Westbound label – a style that's maybe a bit more heady, and sometimes righteous! Titles include the classic title cut "Do Me Right", the great loping groover "Lee", and the cuts "Holding On", "I Can't See Myself", and "What You Gonna Do About Me". Next up Is You Want It You Got It – an early 70s gem from the group! Detroit had plenty of great harmony groups in the 60s – but by the early 70s, The Detroit Emeralds were right on top – a feat that was easy to do with work this great! The trio have a fantastic approach here – a bit of the psychedelic soul sound of the Norman Whitfield generation, but also some warmer, sweeter harmonies too – a bit of an east coast vibe that really stands out – and which is done by the group at a level that's way better than most of their contemporaries! Arrangements are by group member Abe Tilmon, and very hip – and titles include the group's great take on "Baby Let Me Take You In My Arms", which has a great sample used by De La Soul – plus "You Want It You Got It", "Feel The Need In Me", "There's love For Me Somewhere", "Till You Decide To Come Home", and "I've Got To Move". CD also features a bonus radio promo spot too! CD

Cookers QuintetCookers Quintet Vol 1 ... CD
Do Right (Canada), 2014. New Copy ... $9.99
A sweet little combo who definitely live up to their name – and work here in a very old school approach to jazz! The group's got a great groove right from the start – maybe not as full-on modal as Five Corners Quintet, but somewhere in a same space – but they also don't just let the rhythms determine their solo expressions – and really step out here in a great range of colors and tones! Key solos come from Ryan Oliver on tenor and Tim Hamel on trumpet – and the group also features Richard Whiteman on piano, Alex Coleman on bass, and Morgan Childs on drums – all great players who also wrote all the material for the album as well. The sound is a bit in keeping with the retro look of the cover – but is never just a retro gimmick, and instead has a classically well-crafted jazz appeal. Titles include "The Ramble", "Blues To Booker", "Obligatory Blues", "Mudbug Shuffle", "Open Air", "The Fork Test", and "See You Next Thursday". CD

BT ExpressDo It (Til You're Satisfied) ... CD
Scepter/St Clair, 1974. Used ... $14.99
The monumental debut of BT Express – and an excellent funk album that often gets overlooked by fans of the music because of the band's bigger fame as a disco group! This first record has the combo grooving hard and instrumentally – in the mode of a tight blacksploitation soundtrack, with plenty of tight wah wah guitar riffing, conga beats, and funky flute and sax – topped off by just the right amount of strings to make the set soar even more! The album's best known for the title track "Do It (Til You're Satisfied)" – which was a big hit, but is still an excellent groover – and the set also includes loads of other great cuts too – like "Express", which was the original song that the created the JBs' response track "Monorail"; "This House is Smokin'", which has lots of funky descending horn bits; and other great tunes that include "Mental Telepathy", "If It Don't Turn You On", and "Do You Like It".

Nelson Cavaquinho, Candeia, Guilherme De BritoQuatro Grandes Do Samba ... CD
Sony (UK), 1977. Used ... $6.99
A beautiful album of samba tracks – recorded with a warm intimacy that really gets at the talents of the group! Four samba giants – Nelson Cavaquinho, Cadeia, Guilherme De Brito, and Elto Medeiros – join forces in this 1977 session recorded for RCA Brazil. The vocal stylings of the artists are shifted from track to track – so that most numbers feature one of the quartet stepping out as a lead vocalist, with accompaniment by the others – which makes for a very collaborative, almost spontaneous sort of feel – just the right setting for these legends of the genre. Titles include "Sem Ilusao", "Noticia", "Amor Perfeito", "Nao E So Voce", "A Vida", "Sou Mais O Samba", and "Gotas De Luar". CD

✨✧ Dining RoomsDo Hipsters Love Sun (Ra)? – A Soundtrack Of Cosmic Funk, Abstract Jazz, & Cinematic Avant Garde ... CD
Schema (Italy), 2015. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99
Maybe the hippest album we've ever heard from The Dining Rooms – something we probably could have guessed from their evocation of Sun Ra in the title! And while that title seems a bit obtuse – maybe even a joke – the music here is right on the money, and some of the most serious, most spiritual the group has ever given us – quite far from some of the easier dance-styled sounds we know from their early years. There's still a lot of samples and electronics in the mix, but they're used in extremely thoughtful ways – and often sourced with more interesting material, too – so that there's a core of 70s cosmic jazz and fusion that seems to drive the record, which also comes through in the group's own keyboards as well. The approach isn't entirely jazz, but not far off at times – and titles include "Interstellar", "Light Time Tales", "Marte"," Love Story", "Saturno", "Devil's Moon", "Once Were Warriors", and "Sergio Leone Asteroid".

Maureen EvansLike I Do – The Sixties Recordings ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
An overlooked British singer from the 60s – and one who really covers a great range of territory on the 31 tracks included in the set! Maureen Evans first began recording at the start of the 60s, with a style that's like that best Brit pop mode of recasting American work of the period – focusing on both the subtle groove and the right balance of drama – which Evans' vocals can handle beautifully, without making things ever sound overdone! She trills at times – hinting at a greater vocal range than presented here, but in ways that are also nicely understated, and fit the arrangements perfectly – in a way that shifts nicely as the 60s move on. The package is the first we've ever seen to present these singles, and features great sound and detailed notes – plus titles that include "Oh What A Guy", "Get Away", "Like You Used To Do", "Please Understand", "Acapulco Mexico", "The Big Hurt", "Speak Sugar Speak", "I Almost Called Your Name", "We Just Couldn't Say Goodbye", and "Poco Sole".

Vernon GarrettDon't Do What I Do/I've Learned My Lesson ... 7-inch
Watts/Funky Delicacies, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99 8.98
Two of the funkiest cuts that Vernon Garrett ever cut – a nice surprise in contrast to some of his more blues-based material! "I've Learned My Lesson" has a rock-solid punch, right at the start – this bassline that's complicated, but wonderfully grooving – and which sets a scene for Vernon to step in with some great raw soul vocals! Those vocals come on even more strongly on "Don't Do What I Do" – a tune that almost hits a James Brown late 60s sort of clip – moving away at breakneck speed, but never losing its groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mayer HawthorneHow Do You Do ... CD
Universal Republic, 2011. Used ... $7.99
Mayer Hawthorne moves to the majors on How Do You Do – bringing that fun, neo classic bedroom soul sound he did so well on Stones Throw with him – pretty much picking up right where Strange Arrangement left off! The Mayer Hawthorne story was a strange one from the start – white producer/DJ crafting real deal moody, sultry throwback soul under a pseudonym that gets him signed to Stones Throw. The best news, really, is that he's still doing what we loved on the Stones Throw LP and singles. Skirting throwback Motown and indie soul conventions, but winking ever so slyly at them, making strings sound scratchy, warm and well-worn, subtle horns to sooth and stir, his own vocals layered for a group-like effect. Bonus points for his use of the superstar cameo – he brings Snoop Dogg in to SING, not to serve as an obligatory rhyme cameo. Well played, Mayer Hawthorne! Includes "Get To Know You", "A Long Time", "Can't Stop" with Snoop, "Finally Falling", "Hooked", "You Called Me", "No Strings", "Dreaming", "The Walk" and more. CD

Smokey HoggServe It To The Right – The Combo & Modern Recordings 1947 to 1952 ... CD
Modern/Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
A great second chapter of work from Smokey Hogg's years at the Modern Records label – material that's got a bit more of a west coast polish than the rootsy vibe of his previous sides! Smokey still has plenty of Texas in his vocals and work on guitar, but the arrangements here often emphasize hipper piano lines and groovier rhythms, too – bringing Hogg's sound more into contact with the growing sophistication of the west coast scene. The mix is a really compelling one – as there's definitely some country blues phrasing in the guitar, but a lot more of a jump blues sound in the rhythms – coming together in that really special way that happened on the west coast during the postwar years. As usual with Ace, the presentation here is great – excellent sound on rare 78s, right from their original source material – plus a number of never-issued tracks, too – making for a total of 25 numbers that include "Patrol Wagon Blues", "River Hip Mama", "Worried Blues", "Come On Home", "You're Gonna Look Like A Monkey", "I Believe To My Soul", "Good Morning Little Baby", "Two Mama Blues", "Possum Hunt", "Talk It Over", "Whoa Mule", and "Can't Do Nothin".

✨✧ Luther IngramI Don't Want To Be Right – The KoKo Singles Vol 2 ... CD
Koko/Kent (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
A sublime second chapter in the career of Memphis soul singer Luther Ingram – one of the greatest talents of his generation, represented here by some of his best work ever! Ingram first got his start doing rougher, more fragile soul tunes – but by the time of these 70s recordings, he'd really found his voice – and hit a more confident, more sensuous style that could easily go head to head with Al Green or any of his southern soul contemporaries. There's a key Stax connection to most of the material here, but the sound's a bit different too – thanks to the production efforts of Koko label head Johnny Baylor, who gives Ingram a sound that's nicely apart from the pack. The booklet features a really in-depth look at the music – 14 pages of track-by-track notes on the tunes – and the CD features 19 singles recorded over most of the mid 70s. Titles include "Missing You", "Puttin Game Down", "If Loving You Is Wrong I Don't Want To Be Right", "Always", "Help Me Love", "Love Ain't Gonna Run Me Away", "Ain't Good For Nothing", "These Are The Things", "Let's Steal Away To The Hideaway", "I Like The Feeling", "I'm Gonna Be The Best Thing", "Do You Love Somebody", "Get To Me", "How I Miss My Baby", and "You Were Made For Me".

Syl JohnsonDo You Know What Soul Is ... LP
Numero, 1960s. New Copy ... $12.99
Do you know what soul is? Whether you do or not, this incredible collection of Syl Johnson singles cut for for various small labels back in the day is a prime place to find it! The set is a wonderful collection of the raw, hard soul singles Syl recorded in the 60s for a variety of small Chicago labels, really cutting his teeth as independent singer, songwriter, producer triple threat here after some stellar early singles for Federal and before his underground funky soul LP classics a little later on. Amazing stuff! Titles include "She's Alright", "I Know", "This Heart Of Mine", "Half A Love", "Do You Know What Love Is", "Do You Know What Love Is", "Things Ain't Right", "Surrounded", "Falling In Love Again", "I've Been Talked About", "Straight Love, No Chaser" and "I've Got To Get Over". 14 tracks in all.

Steve MarshallDo What You Will ... CD
Reynolds/Dope Brother, Late 70s. Used ... $3.99
Steve Marshall towers above the 70s San Francisco skyline on the cover of this record – and the set features some equally towering grooves to match! The style here is a bit unusual – kind of a west coast take on the underground modes of the P&P empire out east, mixed with a bit of soul jazz – spare, simple club tracks that are a lot more stripped-down than regular disco – with a real focus on the core rhythms and select instrumentation on the cuts! Bits of strings slide into the mix, but they're never overdone – and most numbers pulsate with a really earthy sort of groove – heavy on bass, peppered with female vocals, and lots of funky keyboards and horns. There's also a slightly jazzy vibe at times – especially on numbers that feature flute work from Marshall – which gives the tunes a lyrical quality that's nice and warm, especially alongside the chorus vocals – which sometimes have a righteous qualitytoo. The reissue really brings up the sound nicely – with the Kenny Dope stamp of approval right on the back – and the CD also features lots of bonus tracks too! Titles include "Do What You Will", "This Choiceless Awareness", "Disco Rhapsody", "Maintain", "In The Country", and "Children Of The Mind". CD features 5 bonus tracks – including "Maintain (12" version)", "Do What You Will (12" version)", "Maintain (7" version)", "Creative Happiness (7" version)", and "Still Thinking Of You (flute solo)".

Otis & ShuggWe Can Do Whatever ... CD
Expansion (UK), 1996. New Copy ... $14.99
The long-overdue release of an album that should have been a Neo Soul classic! The team of Otis Cooper and Shugg David recorded this gem of a set back in the mid 90s along with help from longtime friend and producer Raphael Saadiq – but due to shifting priorities at the major label, the set was shelved and is only now finally seeing the light of day! Despite the wait, though, the album bristles with electricity and has a totally fresh sound – bubbling over with the warmth and soul of the best Saadiq production work of the time, and hitting a vibe that's almost in the same mode as his own recent Ray Ray recordings. But even more charming are the talents of Otis & Shugg – two down-to-earth vocalists who work in a style that's nicely free of cliche, and which really shows them setting a tone that would be followed by many other make singers in the Neo Soul years to come. Titles include "Right On Track", "Fantasy", "If You Want It", "My First Mistake", "Round & Round", "Indiana", "This Is My Phone Call", and "Something Inside Of Me". CD

Sly & The Family StoneWho In The Funk Do You Think You Are – The Warner Bros Recordings ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1979/1982. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
The complete Warner Brothers recordings of Sly Stone – and a much-needed look at an oft-ignored side of his career! The set features the full tracks from the albums Back On The Right Track and Ain't But The One Way – as well as 5 previously unissued demos, which have a rough and ready feel that almost makes them the best of the bunch! The work on the albums is surprisingly great – not classic early Sly, but with this warmly compressed groove that extends his sound nicely – and which has a really great mainstream funk appeal. Sly's using the studio as an instrument more than ever before – getting some great sounds out of the way he brings the vocals, drums, and guitars all together in the mix – and reinventing himself a bit, without losing his groove. Titles include "The Same Thing (Makes You Laugh, Makes You Cry)", "Shine It On", "It Takes All Kinds", "Who's To Say", "Sheer Energy", "LOVINU", "One Way", "High, Y'All", "Ha Ha Hee Hee", "You Really Got Me", "Sylvester", "You're The One (inst demo)", "In Other Words (demo)", "Hand Of Love (demo)", and "Get Back (backing track takes 2 & 3)".

Tapecar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $23.99
Elza Soares grooves things nicely here – working in a samba mode that's relatively traditional, but which is also warmed up by arranger Ed Lincoln! Ed's backings here are different than those used on his famous organ albums of the 60s – but they've got the equal sort of soul and swing – just the right groove to bring out the best qualities of Elza's vocals, even when she's getting support from a larger chorus! The tunes are playful, and plenty compelling – and titles include "Nos Bracos Do Samba", "Lendas E Festas Das Yabas", "Primeiro Eu", "Nem Vem", "Confesso Que Chorei", "Cansanda De Esperar", and "Viagem De Jangada".

Score/Past Due, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
A sweet EP of 80s soul from Subway – one of the Memphis acts who got some great handling in the studio from underground legend Lee Moore! The vibe here is nice and tight – and Subway are much more in the clean mix of keys, basslines, and beats that you'd hear from New York – than they are in the deeper soul modes of Memphis in the 70s! Vocals are nicely processed with the male singers – allowing them to slide right in alongside the keyboards – and there's a killer female singer on "What You Do For Love" and "What's In The Dark" – one who really makes the music take off to new heights! 12-inch, Vinyl record

President (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $3.99
Girl pop, and plenty of soul music too – a batch of rare singles from the 60s, all making their CD debut on this sweet little set! The work here includes a fair bit of New York tunes from the time – music that has either an uptown soul or Brill Building vibe, but which is much more obscure than the hits – really showing the huge universe of artists who were working in the 45 underground who never fully got their due! Titles include "Jigsaw Puzzle" by The Chelmars, "Tom Tom" by Terry & The Tunisians, "I Have The Right" by The Twilights, "Love Wheel" by Millie Foster, "The Sweetest Boy" by The Kittens, "I Wanna Talk To You" by Karol Kelly, "There'll Be No Goodbye" by Susan Lynne, "What Does A Girl Do" by Marcie Blaine, "Where's My Love" by Jamie Horton, "Larry" by The Allen Sisters, and "I'm Hurt & So Is My Heart" by Little Gigi.

A beautifully overstuffed collection of early work from New Orleans soul legend Allen Toussaint – a set that not only includes many of his key recordings from the scene in the 60s, but also some of his important productions for other artists too! The package begins with Toussaint in the lead on a series of sides on CD one – working either as himself, or as Al Touson, or with The Stones, The Rubyiats, or Allen & Allen – all with these choppy, loping, heavy-grooving rhythms that were Toussaint's huge contribution to New Orleans soul right from the start! Titles include "Whirlaway", "Whipped Cream", "Moo Moo", "Wham Tousan", "Omar Khayyam", "I Don't Need One", "Baby Do Liddle", "Tomorrow", "Fat Cat", "Banana Split", and "Java". CD2 features a series of recordings done for the Minit, Instant, and Sansu labels – all with Toussaint involved either as producer, arranger, or musician – on material that forever shaped the sound of New Orleans – titles that include "A Certain Girl" by Ernie K Doe, "Over You" by Aaron Neville, "I Like It Like That (parts 1 & 2)" by Chris Kenner, "Sophisticated Cissy" by The Meters, "Holy Cow" by Lee Dorsey, "I'm Evil Tonight" by Betty Harris, "Oogsey Moo" by Jessie Hill, "It Will Stand" by The Showmen, "Ruler Of My Heart" by Irma Thomas, "Fortune Teller" by Benny Spellman, and "Hot Tamales (parts 1 & 2)" by The Primemates. 50 tracks in all!

✨✧ JoyceAnos 80s (Feminina/Agua E Luz/Tardes Cariocas/Saudade Do Futuro/bonus tracks) (4CD set) ... CD
EMI/Discobertas (Brazil), Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... Out Of Stock
An incredible collection – four albums that feature this amazing singer at her height, along with bonus tracks too! First up is Feminina – one of Joyce's greatest albums – and maybe the first record we'd point to for anyone interested in her music! The set's an incredible blend of vocals, acoustic guitar, and these lightly gentle arrangements – all at this new level of expression that still recognizes Joyce's bossa roots, but really moves beyond with all the sophistication of MPB in the 70s! The sound of the whole thing is wonderful – completely transcendent and mesmerizing right from the start – and Joyce penned most of the tunes and handled the arrangements – with help from Gilson Peranzzetta on a few tracks. Titles include the classic "Feminina", plus "Essa Mulher", "Coracao De Crianca", "Aldeia De Ogum", "Compor", and "Misterios". Next is Agua E Luz – an amazing mix of jazzy vocals, sparkling production, and beautiful light guitar – the younger Joyce at her best – in a wonderfully uncluttered style that makes the record a treasure all the way through! Joyce sings and plays acoustic guitar – and gets these lightly jazzy backings that often feature a bit of electricity, but never too much to dampen the acoustic heart of the record – that great sense of personality that's always made Joyce unlike any other Brazilian artist we can think of – even though so many others have tried to copy her style over the years! Joyce did all the arrangements herself, Sivuca guests on one track – and titles include "Muito Prazer", "Samba De Gago", "Agua E Luz", "Mais Uma Vez, Mais Uma Voiz", "Banho Maria", and "Meio A Meio". Tardes Cariocas is a set recorded during the same key stretch as her early 80s albums for EMI – yet much more obscure! The album's got the same brilliant blend of jazz and bossa phrasing as her classics Agua E Luz and Feminina – and really brings Joyce's beautiful vocals to the forefront, with a strong focus on that fluid, jazzy style we totally love! Acoustic guitar is key to the instrumentation, yet there's also a few electric touches on keyboards – yet used quite softly, so that the presence of Joyce really dominates the record – but with a power that's greater than some of her more solo sets. Wonderful throughout –a nd with cuts that include "Nacional Kid", "Curioso", "Baracumbarra", "Tardes Cariocas", "Luz Do Chao", and "Ela". Saudade Do Futuro is a totally hard to find Joyce album from the mid 80's. Recorded for the obscure Pointer label in Brazil, this set has more of a modern fusion feel than some of her classic recordings that we stock, but Joyce's voice is still sweet and lovely, and her songwriting's as strong as always. The set includes her classic cut "Fa Da Bahia", plus other nice tracks like "Peixe Estrela", "Sonora Garoa", "Quadrantes", "Minha Gata Rita Lee", "Stone Washed, and "Tema Para Jobim", which has a guest performance by Milton Nascimento! Set features 7 bonus tracks – recordings done with Viva Voz, Antonio Adolfo, Mario Adnet, and others – with titles that include "Acalanto", "Terra", "Pega Leve", "Canconeta", "Revendo Amigos", "Diga Ai Companheiro", and "Planeta Azul".
