Jorge BenBen (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1972. New Copy ... $11.99 18.98
A stunner of a record from the mighty Jorge Ben – and a record that catapulted the Brazilian singer to international fame at the time! Ben had already been making magic for almost a decade down in Brazil – and his compositions and grooves left an undeniable impact on the scene in the post-bossa years – but this album has Jorge really emerging as the global soul star he was destined to be – from his powerful stare on the cover, right down to the grit in the grooves! The sound here is a refinement of the samba soul mode that Ben had been brewing up from the late 60s onward – a skittish mix of older samba elements, American soul, and some slight fuller production that really comes into its own here – mixing all the acoustic elements at the core with just a slight electric flourish, but never losing its edge in the process – all to provide Jorge with a sublime backdrop for his really amazing vocals. The set's a monument in funky Brazilian soul – and it includes the huge hit "Taj Mahal", which still sounds great, even after all these years – plus loads of other gems that include "O Circo Chegou", "Domingo 23", "Fio Maravilha", "Paz E Arroz", "Morre O Burro Fico O Homem", and "Que Nega E Essa". A gem all the way through – and a record we'd never part with! CD
(Limited edition of 2000 copies – in a nice LP-styled sleeve!)

✨✧ Dusty SpringfieldBrand New Me – The Complete Philadelphia Sessions ... CD
Atlantic/Real Gone, 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Dusty Springfield continues her exploration of American soul begun with the Dusty In Memphis album – but this time around, she's headed for Philly, where she gets to work with the Gamble & Huff production team! In a way, we like this work even better than Dusty's better-known Memphis recordings – because the gliding Philly groove of the time is a lot more fresh, and somehow doesn't sound as forced as some of Dusty's attempts at straighter, deeper soul. Arrangements are by Thom Bell and Roland Chambers – and rhythms are by a core combo that includes Vince Montana, Ugene Dozier, Ronald Baker, Earl Young, and Norman Harris. Tunes are all Gamble & Huff originals – and titles include "Lost", "Let Me In Your Way", "Never Love Again", "Let's Get Together Soon", "Silly Silly Fool", "Star Of My Show", and "Let's Talk It Over". 17 track CD features the complete Philly recordings – including the previously-unissued "Sweet Charlie", and the tracks "Goodbye", "The Richest Girl Alive", "Cherished", and "Summer Love".

VariousSaigon Supersound Vol 1 – 1965 to 1975 ... CD
Saigon Supersound, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
Incredible sounds from Saigon – music that's often quite funky and surprisingly soulful – and which no doubt shows a strong influence on the scene from all the American GIs who were playing their music overseas! Other collections of this nature maybe localize the music a bit more than this one – and go for sounds that aren't tied as strongly to Western grooves – but Saigon Supersound really changes that trend, and digs up lots of unusual tunes that have a rompingly soulful sound – cuts that, at the core, have plenty of appeal to fans of American funk and soul – even though the lyrics and some of the instrumentation might be a bit unusual! A really killer compilation, of the sort we love to champion here at Dusty Groove – with titles that include "Tinh Ta Nhu Lua Dom Hoa" by Carol Kim, "Neu Minh Con Yeu Nhau" by Thanh Yu, "Pho Dem" by Hoa Tau, Mua Xuan Gui Em" by Phuong Mai, "Diem Xua" by Khanh Ly, and "Can Nha Ngoai O" by Kim Loan. CD
Also available Saigon Supersound Vol 1 – 1965 to 1975 ... LP 28.99
