VariousDon't Blow Your Cool – More 60s Girls From UK Decca ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $14.99 22.99
Girl pop gems we never would have heard otherwise – a huge assortment of UK female numbers from that special stretch in the 60s when it seemed like the scene was turning out gem after gem with effortless ease – all mixed up with a blend of rock, pop, and soul modes that really set the work apart from American singles of the time! You may know the way that Dusty Springfield mixed together soul and rock styles in her big hits – but the assortment of singers here maybe even take the mode further, and really showcase the heady brew of sounds that was taking place in mid 60s London! As always with Ace, the song selection and notes are fantastic – and titles include "You" by Lorraine Child, "Jenny Let Him Go" by Antoinette, "He Loves Me He Loves Me Not" by Dana Gillespie, "All The Time In The World" by Stevie Kimble, "Spark That Lights The Flame" by Margo, "Me About You" by Billie Davis, "Mind How You Go" by Barry St John, "Primrose Hill" by Kathe Green, "Don't Blow Your Cool" by The Caravelles, "Love For Living" by Clare Torry, and "Mr Scrooge" by The Orchids.

Janelle MonaeDirty Computer ... CD
Bad Boy, 2018. New Copy ... $9.99 18.98
Janelle Monae knocks it out of the park here – sounding every bit as great as before, but also hitting this righteous mode that really takes the singer to incredible new territory! If you loved Janelle's previous records, don't worry – she's still as catchy and playful as ever – but there's also a depth and darkness that's inspired by recent political turns in America – which Monae also uses to address issues that go back much farther in her experience, woven together in songs that are maybe even more politically powerful because of the way that they'll also win over the mainstream! Stevie Wonder gets the very first thanks in the long notes at the end of the book – and the mix of soul and message here definitely hearkens back to Stevie in the 70s – is all Janelle's own. Heck, even guests like Zoe Kravitz, Brian Wilson, and Pharrell Williams can't get in the way – on titles that include "Screwed", "Django Jane", "I Got The Juice", "Stevie's Dream", "Don't Judge Me", "Crazy Classic Life", "Take A Byte", "Do Afraid", "Americans", "I Like That ", "Pynk", "Jane's Dream", and "Make Me Feel". And hey, you've gotta love a record that's inspired both by Vibranium and Stevie Wonder! CD

OmarOmar – The Anthology ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 1990s/2000s/2010s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A huge career overview of the music of Omar Lyefook – one of our favorite soul singers of the past few decades – right from the moment he first wowed the world with a bedroom-produced album that rivaled the greatness of Stevie Wonder! Omar's placement on the UK scene has maybe got him less attention than he's deserved on our shores – but don't let that stop you from diving in and really digging the sublime array of sounds on the set – music that was some of the freshest, most original soul of the 90s – and which continued to move at a very high level as Omar kept creating over the decades. The 2CD package includes out of print gems from his early records, and other bits from more recent years – and a fair bit of collaborations with artists who include Carleen Anderson, Terri Walker, Stevie Wonder, Caron Wheeler, Erykah Badu, Leon Ware, and Robert Glasper. 33 tracks in all – including "Music", "Last Request", "There's Nothing Like This", "Pass It On", "Feeling You", "Kiss It Right", "The Man", "Treat You", "F*ck War Make Love", "De Ja Vu", "Insatiable", "Doobie Doobie Doo", "Gave My Heart", "Be Thankful", "This Is Not A Love Song", "Little Boy", "Tell Me", "Vicky's Tune", "Bully", "Who Chooses The Seasons", and "Last Request".

VariousShel's Girls – From The Planet Records Vaults ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $7.99 18.99
Producer Shel Talmy is maybe best known for his work behind some of the bigger rock artists on the UK scene of the 60s – but he also really had a great way with a gal singer too – as you'll hear in this killer collection of female pop singles from the time! The tunes here groove like the best from big names like Sandie Shaw, Dusty Springfield, or Cilla Black – with a similar focus of strong lead singer amidst some very groovy arrangements – but the songs are much more obscure overall, and stand strongly as a rich dip into the world of female British pop of the 60s, even if you don't care at all about Shel's legacy! Fortunately, we're huge fans of both – and completely adore this well-done collection – which has two dozen tracks we never would have heard otherwise, along with very detailed notes and plenty of images of the ladies within. Titles include a great version of the Brian Wilson tune "Guess I'm Dumb" by Dani Sheridan – plus "No More Love" by Liz Shelly, "Gotta Get Away" by Van Lenton, "Cruel Way To Be" by Debbie Sharron, "Surrender" by Perpetual Langley, "A Strange World" by Stevie Holly, "Stay At Home" by The Orchids, "This Heart Is Not For Sale" by Margo & The Marvettes, "Tar & Cement" by Liz Shelly, A Shoulder To Cry On" by Christine Holmes, and "A Ladies Man (alt version)" by Colette & The Bandits.

✨✧ Joe FarrellPenny Arcade/Upon This Rock/Canned Funk ... CD
BGO (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
3 killer CTI classics from Joe Farrell in a 2CD set! Penny Arcade has grooves so sharp you could cut your trousers on them! Farrell's angular reed style is in perfect form here – grooving with a small group that includes Herbie Hancock on piano, Joe Beck on guitar, Steve Gadd on drums, and Don Alias on percussion – a combo that's got a harder, tighter feel than most CTI groups – a key reason why Joe's records of this time are so legendary! Includes a version of Stevie Wonder's "Too High" – one that breaks all over the beginning with these riffs by Farrell, then grooves into a CTI electric funk mode for about 13 minutes. All tracks are long – and other tracks include "Hurricane Jane", "Geo Blue", "Penny Arcade", and "Cloud Cream". Upon This Rock is another massive set from the funky reedman – with a lean, edgy groove to the set that's totally great. One cut features a guest group – with Herbie Hancock on piano, Steve Gadd on drums, and Don Alias on percussion – and the album includes the massively break-heavy title cut "Upon This Rock", plus "Seven Seas", "I Won't Be Back", and "Weathervane". There's nothing canned on Canned Funk – as the sound, style, and groove of the record is as fresh and freaky as the classic image on the cover! The sax lines are as angular as the rhythms – tight, choppy, and completely funky – no wonder the record's a CTI classic that folks have dug for years! Tracks are all nice and long – and titles include "Canned Funk", "Animal", and "Spoken Silence". CD

✨✧ Stone AllianceLive In Bremen ... CD
PM/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare European performance from the Stone Alliance trio – one that was recorded at the same time as their legendary run of albums for the PM label, but never issued at the time! The tracks are nice and long here, and the group really break out – still every bit as tight as on their well-remembered albums of hard funk and heavy jazz, but with some freer elements at times – especially from Steve Grossman's tenor on his long solos, and also from percussionist Don Alias on one long track that's just a 9 minute solo on congas! Other titles include a nice reading of Stevie Wonder's "Creepin", plus "Samba De Negro", "Sweetie Pie", "King Tut", and "Taurus People". CD

✨✧ Stevie WonderInnervisions (numbered limited edition) ... CD
Tamla, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the best Stevie Wonder albums ever! Stevie's moving into god-like territory here – handling a multitude of styles, all well, and crafting some of the most sophisticated soul of his generation. The album's got the same jazzy references you'll find on the best work by Donny Hathaway – best heard on the sublime track "Golden Lady", which gets our clear vote for one of the best songs ever! Just about every track is great, though – and the album features the big hits "Living For The City", "All In Love Is Fair", "Higher Ground", and "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing" – plus "He's Misstra Know It All", "Jesus Children Of America", and "Too High". CD has digital remastering, with original artwork and lyrics. CD

✨✧ GC CameronLove Songs & Other Tragedies (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Motown/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous solo act from GC Cameron – a singer who first rose to fame in The Spinners, but who really sounds wonderful on his own! GC's moved away from The Spinners here – into a wide range of styles that show him ready to take on most of the rest of the competition! He's working here with the best of the best of Motown – production from Stevie Wonder and Willie Hutch – and arrangements by both, plus Paul Riser, Gene Page, James Carmichael, and Frank Wilson – all of whom really give their best to the record, and show that Motown was putting plenty of effort into making GC one of the next big stars of the 70s. We're not sure why things never took off as strongly for Cameron, but whatever the case, the album's a great step for the solo artist – on cuts that include "If You Don't Love Me", "Tippin", "All In Love Is Fair", "If You're Ever Gonna Love Me", "Come Get This Thang", "I'm Gonna Give You Respect", and "Let Me Down Easy". CD features an insane amount of bonus tracks – 13 more tracks that include "Act Like A Shotgun", "Girl I Really Love You", "I'm Gonna Get You (parts 1 & 2)", "Don't Wanna Play Pajama Games", "You Are That Special One", "Have I Lost You", "Time", "Topics", and "No Matter Where".

VariousGood Times With Joey & Norman Jay – Classic Party Tunes From The Good Times Sound System ... CD
Nuphonic (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s. Used 2CD ... $14.99
A fitting tribute to two of the most important DJs in London over the past 20 years! Sure, Gilles P has a worldwide radio show, Russ Dewbury's got his Afro funk grooves, and Keb Darge has redefined the funk scene – but way before any of them Norman Jay was blowing out the rare grooves in London, hipping that city to a motherlode of great soul and funk back when most folks were still twiddling with post-punk club tracks or bad knock-off acid house records. Teamed with his brother Joey, the pair has been a seminal part of the Notting Hill carnival every year – as their Good Times Sound System pumps out a mix of club, soul, reggae, and funk as a never-ending soundtrack for this massive annual party. Nuphonic have come up with a stunning tribute to the pair, serving up a heaping platter of great rare tracks that perfectly capture the Good Times spirit, with enough music to take you late into the afternoon of any carnival Saturday. Titles include "Funky Nassau" by Ray Munnings, "Open Up" by Chic, "If You Really Love Me" by Stevie Wonder, "Thank You (MAW mix)" by Bebe Winans, "Mission Impossible" by Byron Lee & The Dragonaires, "Prophecy" by Fabian, "Optimistic" by Sounds Of Blackness, "Rebel Without A Pause" by Public Enemy, "Sound Of Da Police" by KRS One, "Stone To The Bone (7" version)" by James Brown, "Fearless" by Incognito, "El Bobo" by Webster Lewis, "California Soul" by Marlena Shaw, "Just Us" by Two Tons Of Fun, "Hanging On A String (ext mix)" by Loose Ends, "I Heard That" by Eddie Russ, and "I Hear Music In The Streets" by Unlimited Touch. 27 tracks in all!

DJ PatifeNa Estrada ... CD
Trama (Brazil), 2006. Used ... $9.99
An incredible record by DJ Patife – far more subtle and soulful than any of his previous efforts, and way much more than just his initial Brazilian take on drum n bass! The sound here easily matches the spirit of the best soulful work on Trama – and the album's done with the depth and integrity of recent gems from Patricia Marx or Bruno E – pretty heady company, but Patife is more than ready for the comparison! Frequent partner Mad Zoo is also along for the album as well, but is a bit more in the background than before – giving space to the subtler instrumentalists who make some of the best tunes to great – letting keyboards, guitar bits, and other jazzy touches really deepen the feel of the record. Vocals are by Cleveland Watkiss, Laura Finnochiaro, Wilson Simoninha, Janaiana Holland, and Camila Andrade – and titles include a great cover of Stevie Wonder's "Overjoyed", plus "Enigma", "Diariamente", "The Midnighter (live bar mix)", "Lovin U", "The Secret", "Link", "Made In Bahia", and "Que Pena".

Idle HandsSolid Moments ... CD
Posi tone, 2020. New Copy ... $11.99 17.98
There's nothing idle about these hands – as the group have a tightness that makes you think they've been together for years – which is maybe partly the case, as many of the artists are part of the great and ever-growing legacy of the Posi-Tone label! And while the company has given us great albums with single artists in the lead over the years, they've maybe been hitting even more strongly of late with groups of this nature – almost an all-leader effort, but in which all players come together with great sympathy for each other – in a lineup that features Will Bernard on guitar, Behn Gillece on vibes, Sam Dillon on tenor sax, Art Hirahara on piano, Boris Kozlov on bass, and Donald Edwards drums. The album's overflowing with fresh, original material – and titles include "Barreling Through", "Silver Bullet", "Maxwell Street", "Ashes", "Sock's House", "Motion", and "Event Horizon " – plus nice takes of Stevie Wonder's "You And I" and Freddie Hubbard's "Theme For Kareem".

SolUpfront – An EC3 Vibe ... CD
Pacific Coast Jazz, 2017. New Copy ... $6.99 10.99
Great sounds from Sol – an artist with a warm glow right from the start, but also a nice sense of crispness that really personalizes his lyrics! Sol's got an approach here that almost feels like gospel – especially given his vocal range, and his positive energy – but the music is definitely secular overall, and features some well-done covers of work by Bill Withers and Stevie Wonder! There's a killer take on "Lovely Day", with almost a Latin jazz sort of vibe – and Stevie's great "Golden Lady", one of our favorite tunes ever, is taken at a slightly quicker clip, with an nice sax bit too. Yet the original tunes are almost even better – and include "That's The Way I Feel You", "Always", "Invisible", and "After The Sunrise". CD

VariousLord Have Mercy – The Soulful Gospel Of Checker Records ... CD
Playback, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $11.99
A much-needed look at an under-exposed side of the legendary Chess Records – the label's incredible run of gospel records, most of which were every bit as great as their Chicago soul sessions! This package is the first to really dig into that rich history – and has a wonderful focus on the grittier, funkier, groovier side of the label's catalog – served up here in a mix of rare album tracks, from records that have never been reissued – plus more stunners from funky 45s, most of which have been overlooked by soul collectors over the years. And yes, there's a spiritual message to these tracks, but it's often delivered with a very secular style – both in the vocals and instrumentation – as you'll hear on "Lord Keep Me Day By Day" by The Gospel Six, "Trying To Get Ready" by The Violinaires, "Soon I Will Be Done" by East St Louis Gospelettes, "Please Lord" by The Messiahs Of Glory, "Crying Pity & A Shame" by Salem Travelers, "It's So Good To Be Alive" by The William Singers, "Troubles" by Estella Burke, "The Whole World Is Watching" by Charlie Brown, "Same Old Bag" by Stevie Hawkins, and "Bless Me" by The Inspirational Singers.

✨✧ VariousMotown Meets The Beatles ... CD
Motown/Spectrum (UK), 1960s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
It's no surprise that the music of The Beatles crossed over big with all music listeners of the 60s – and this great set documents that huge influence the Beatles' original tunes had on Motown! The set features 17 tracks – from the early sweet days of Motown, to the later slightly-psychedelic ones, all Beatles tunes, done in soulful versions that really work wonders with the original compositions. Titles include "The Fool On The Hill" by The Four Tops, "Hey Jude" by The Temptations, "We Can Work It Out" by Stevie Wonder, "Eleanor Rigby" by Four Toops, "Hard Days Night" by The Supremes, "My Sweet Lord" by Edwin Star, "Imagine" by Diana Ross, "Something" by Martha Reeves & the Vandellas, "She's Leaving Home" by Syreeta, "And I Love Her" by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, and "Yesterday" by Marvin Gaye.

✨✧ Paul HornVisions ... CD
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Nice fusiony jazz done with soul and airy atmophere by Paul Horn – including some choice covers, and sounds that range from fusiony jazz with a little bit of funk and more lilting numbers lifted by flute and wordless vocals! Horn has a tendency to go head first into a more new agey vibe, but here we get a more grounded approach with more soul and bits of funk in the bass, keys & percussion. The players include Larry Carlton, Joe Sample and Tom Scott. Includes a nice takes on a trio of Stevie Wonder numbers: "Too High", "Visions" and "Living For The City", Joni Mitchell's "Blue" and "Chelsea Morning" (the former featuring some vocals and keyboards by Joni), plus "High Tide"., "Long Time Gone", "Song With No Words" and "Dida".
