✨✧ Jean CarnJean Carn/Happy To Be With You (Edsel pressing) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Edsel (UK), 1976/1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brilliant modern soul from Jean Carn – 2 of her greatest albums for Philly International, back to back on one CD! Jean first got her start singing righteous jazz with husband Doug Carn for the Black Jazz label – but by the time of these albums, she was out on her own and working with the Gamble & Huff team in a whole new groove! Jean's jazz experience served her well at Philly – giving her a sense of maturity and vocal depth that made her one of the best female singers on label – as you'll hear from these 2 excellent albums. The CD features 17 tracks in all, including classics like "Don't Let It Go To Your Head", "Free Love", "I'm In Love Once Again", "Happy To Be With You", and her remake of "Revelation/Infant Eyes".

Average White BandAll The Pieces – The Complete Studio Recordings 1973 to 2003 (19CD set) ... CD
Edsel (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 19CD ... $61.99
A huge run of funky soul from The Average White Band – a group who were already well above average at the start, then just got better and better as their music grew during the 70s! The package is the first we've ever seen to honor the group in this way – and includes all their important studio albums, plus lesser-known gems from later years – and 2CDs' worth of rare material too – all in a box with a special 52 page book!

Booker T & The MGsAnd Now/In The Christmas Spirit (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Stax/Edsel (UK), 1966/1967. New Copy 2CD ... $20.99
Two classic albums from this great Memphis group – with bonus tracks as well! First up is And Now Booker T & The MGs – a great little album recorded in the post Green Onions years, at a time when the group was really coming together – with a tightness that perfectly illustrates their sublime Memphis instrumental groove! The album's heavy on guitar and organ, as you'd expect – that great Booker/Steve Cropper sound that can't be denied – and there's a rawness here that you don't get as much in later years – more of a funky 45 vibe that really keeps things fresh! Titles include a few nice originals – like "Soul Jam" and "My Sweet Potato" – but ever the covers sound pretty darn great, with a lot more imagination than the usual instrumental filler. As proof, there's a killer version of "Summertime", with a nice modal groove, plus nice takes on "Think" and "Working In A Coal Mine". In The Christmas Spirit is a seasonal classic from the legendary Stax Records – a set of all instrumental Holiday tunes, played by Booker T & The MGs! The album was recorded at the height of the group's early fame – and features a simple, straightforward groove that features plenty of Hammond from Booker T – plus tight grooves from Steve Cropper on guitar, Donald Duck Dunn on bass, and Al Jackson on drums – all of whom cook up some Memphis soul instrumental takes on seasonal favorites – in a mode that easily makes the record one of the hippest Christmas sides from the time! The whole thing's great – almost like a lost Booker T album overall – and titles include "Blue Christmas", "We Three Kings", "Winter Wonderland", "Silver Bells", and "Merry Christmas Baby". Also features 4 bonus tracks – "Booker Loo", "Red Beans & Rice", "Boot Leg", and "Be My Lady". CD

Booker T & The MGsHip Hug Her/Doin Our Thing (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Stax/Edsel (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy ... $18.99
2 full albums – plus bonus tracks too! On Hip Hug Her, Booker T's definitely getting a bit funky – stepping off with the incredible title cut, a tune which really complicates the groove from the earlier years! The sound is still solid Memphis soul, with a raw instrumental vibe – but the grooves are even better than before, and the set includes loads of great original number written by the group – the kind of cool tunes they most likely cooked up while jamming live in the studio! These gems include the seminal "Hip Hug Her" – plus "Carnaby Street", "Booker's Notion", "Soul Sanction", "Double Or Nothing", and "Slim Jenkins' Place". But the covers are groovy too – and include a version of "Pigmy", plus "Groovin" and "Sunny". Doin Our Thing has Booker T & The MGs moving their instrumental sound into a whole new range than before! The album has a very groovy feel – nice and tight, with especially great organ and guitar lines – often tuned towards 60s hits by other soul artists, but reworked strongly by the group's wonderful rhythms, and turned into a really cooking batch of Memphis soul instrumentals! There's a few key original tunes on the set – like the title track "Doin Our Thing" – and the cuts "I Can Dig It" and "Blue On Green" – but the covers are equally great, and include versions of "Ode To Billie Joe", "You Keep Me Hangin On", "Expressway To Your Heart", and "Let's Go Get Stoned". Features 2 bonus tracks – "Summertime (single edit)" and "Winter Snow". CD

A wonderful collection of work – one that not only features all the albums by this legendary soul group, but also solo projects by each member, and a host of rare bonus tracks too!

Gene ChandlerDuke Of Soul – The Brunswick Years ... CD
Brunswick/Edsel (UK), Late 60s. Used ... $11.99
Excellent compilation of some of Gene's totally hard to find Brunswick soul sides from the late 60's. The arrangments are beautiful, sophisticated, and way way past the Duke of Earl type stuff that he's best know for. And the CD includes such gems as "Teacher Teacher", "Baby That's Love", "Pit Of Loneliness", "Bet You Never Thought It", "(Gonna Be) Good Times", "Here Comes The Tears", "Never Gonna Give You Up", "Since You've Been Gone", and "There Goes The Lover". 20 cuts in all!

Randy CrawfordNightline/Abstract Emotions (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Edsel (UK), 1983/1986. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99
Two 80s gems from Randy Crawford – with bonus tracks too! Niteline is a great crossover moment for Randy Crawford – a set that's filled with catchy little numbers that really helped to break her big to a larger audience, yet still with all the jazzy class of her earlier records too! Linda and Cecil Womack contributed a number of excellent songs to the set, and these balance out the soul component nicely – rounding things out alongside a few of the more crossover tracks. Backings are polished, but still never too clunky or commercial – leaving lots of room for those classic Crawford vocals – and titles include "Nightline", "Living On The Outside", "The Bottom Line", "In Real Life", "Happy Feet", "Lift Me Up", and "Ain't No Foolin". Also features bonus cuts – "Nightline (special version)" and "Nightline (inst dub)". On Abstract Emotions, Randy Crawford's working with arrangements and production from Reggie Lucas – all very much in that sweet 80s style he was bringing to work with other artists at the time! There's plenty of beats, guitars, and keyboards in the instrumentation – pushing an overall sound that's more electric than some of Randy's jazzier sides from the early days. But Ms Crawford's vocals come out strongly on top of it all – with a poised presence that's clearly the main focus of the set. Lucas plays guitar, and also wrote a few of the tracks – and titles include "Can't Stand The Pain", "Actual Emotional Love", "World Of Fools", "Betcha", "Desire", "Getting Away With Murder", and "Almaz". CD features bonus tracks – "Getting Away With Murder (ext)", "Desire (edit)", "Desire (Victor Flores rmx)", "Desire (Victor Flores ext)", and "Desire (acappella)". CD

English BeatVinyl Collection (I Just Can't Stop/Wha'ppen/Special Beat Service/Dub Album) (180 gram vinyl – 4LP box set) ... LP
Edsel (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 4LP ... $53.99
An amazing document of one of the grooviest groups to emerge from the UK at the start of the 80s – not just their three full albums, but almost as much rare bonus material as well! The English Beat came a bit later than the initial wave of Two Tone ska revival groups – and they came with a difference, too – a bit more soul, and a slightly more contemporary approach to their music – one that pushed Jamaican roots into mod London modes – particularly the best sorts that were bubbling up in the post-punk generation! The group really helped revive some warmer sounds in British music – yet without just copying older modes from the other side of the Atlantic, too – and these three great albums definitely went onto set a fire in a host of other groups as well – the first wave of some surprisingly soulful moments from the UK in the 80s. The box set features the full albums I Just Can't Stop It, Wha'ppen, and Special Beat Service – plus a rare bonus dub album, with dub versions of 7 more tracks! LP, Vinyl record album

General JohnsonBest Of The Arista Years (General Johnson plus singles) ... CD
Arista/Edsel (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $6.99
General Johnson's self-titled set for Arista – plus singles! The self-titled set comes a few years after the breakup of Chairmen Of The Board, and General shows the world that he can keep on keeping on as a 70s soul singer! The record has some some fantastic gems that easily stand with Johnson's best work – like the smooth soul stepper "Don't Walk Away", the hard dancing "Keep Keepin On", and a remake of "Patches" that's even more complicated than the original version by Chairmen Of The Board. This version from Edsel UK is billed as Best Of The Arista Years and includes 4 singles. Tracks include "Temperature Risin'", "Lies", "All In The Family", "Only Love Can Mend A Broken Heart", "Let's Fool Around (12" Version)", "Ready Willing And Able" and "Can't Nobody Love Me Like You Do (12" Disco Version)". 12 tracks in all.

✨✧ Billy PaulWhen Love Is New ... CD
Philadelphia International/Edsel (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $6.99
Great stuff from Billy – not his most famous album, but filled with some obscure treasures that really stand out in his work – and the stellar Philadelphia International label! The record's got a tight Gamble/Huff sound – moving very much into the Philly modern style that would dominate the end of the 70s – appropriate that they'd set the pace so well for this album, the fifth LP to arrive on the Philadelphia International label. Includes an extended mellow love suite that includes the cuts "When Love Is New", "I Want'Cha Baby", and "Let's Make A Baby" – some of Billy's sweetest songs ever. Those are preceded by the nearly as great "America (We Need The Light)", "Let The Dollar Circulate", and "People Power". A real gem! CD

Boz ScaggsBoz Scaggs (1969 version/1977 version) ... CD
Atlantic/Edsel (UK), 1969. New Copy 2 CDs ... $19.99
The first-ever solo set from the great Boz Scaggs – done after a few key early performances with The Steve Miller Band – and with a style that's even more soulful than some of Scaggs' later work! The style us unabashedly soul-based – as the set was recorded at Muscle Shoals, with Duane Allman on dobro and Eddie Hinton on guitar – in a mode that's more Stax Records than the smoother groove of any of Boz's bigger hits of the 70s – even though those are pretty darn great too! The shift from Bay Area to southern soul is a great one for the singer – who really shines on titles that include "Waiting For A Train", "Loan Me A Dime", "I'm Easy", "I'll Be Long Gone", and "Now You're Gone". Great 2CD set – which includes the original 1969 mix, and the 1977 mix that was issued after Scaggs' bigger fame. CD

Lisa StansfieldAffection (2CD/DVD set) ... CD
Arista/Edsel (UK), 1990. New Copy 2CD & DVD ... $21.99
Big bouncing soul from Lisa Stansfield – a record that almost rivaled the first effort from Soul II Soul for UK impact on the American mainstream! Despite a pasty-white cover, the record's got a hell of a lot of color – some rich rhythms that reintroduced a syncopated funky sound to the charts, and soaring vocals from Lisa she hardly ever sung this well again on record. Titles include the tremendous symphonic jam "All Around the World", the beautiful "Live Together", and other nice ones like "This Is The Right Time", "You Can't Deny It", and "Mighty Love". This wonderful package features a hardcover, book-style cover – plus an insane 18 bonus tracks – including the titles "Affection", "Wake Up Baby", "My Apple Heart", "Sing It", "Lay Me Down", "Something's Happening", and "The Way You Want It" – plus loads of remixes of the best tracks from the record! Then, the DVD features 7 music videos for cuts from the albums – plus 13 more numbers from a 1990 live performance – and a 2014 video interview too! CD

Lisa StansfieldLisa Stansfield (2CD/DVD set) ... CD
Arista/Edsel (UK), 1997. New Copy 2CD & DVD ... $21.99
Damn great work from Lisa Stansfield – a record that had her bouncing back way to the top in the late 90s, while still holding onto all the wonderful styles she had at the start! The grooves are lean, clean, and very classic-styled – that mix of well-syncopated rhythms, soaring strings, and all the best Brit soul elements that really made Lisa a standout right from the beginning – and one of the key forces in 90s soul who really returned the music to the glory it had back in the 70s. Stansfield's vocals seem even more powerful than before – yet never in a cloying way – and titles include "Never Gonna Fall", "The Real Thing", "Never Never Gonna Give You Up", "The Line", "Honest", "Somewhere In Time", "I Cried My Last Tear Last Night", and "Don't Cry For Me". Great package features a book-style cover – and 13 bonus tracks that include "You Get Me", "Breathtaking", "Baby Come Back", and "People Hold On (Jon Is The Don mix)" – plus more remixes from the album! DVD features 6 promo videos for tracks on the album, plus 10 more tracks from An Intimate Evening With Lisa Stansfield from 1997! CD

Lisa StansfieldPeople Hold On – The Remix Anthology (3CD set) ... CD
Edsel (UK), Late 80s/1990s. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99
The roots of Lisa Stansfield, and lots of great lost moments too – a wealth of rare remixes and other odd bits – and from what we can tell, none of these were used as bonus tracks on the other 2CD reissues of her albums! The depths of Lisa's music knows no bounds – as her strong run of full length records really tops, if not beats the efforts of any of her UK soul contemporaries. But the albums are only part of the picture, as the Stansfield sound has been spread strongly over so many other great collaborations with other artists – including Coldcut, Massive Attack, Frankie Knuckles, and many others all featured in this 3CD set. The package has a great heavy book-styled cover – and features 33 tracks that include "Change (metamorphosis mix)", "What Did I Do To You (anti poll tax dub)", "Set Your Loving Free (low life mix)", "People Hold On (full length disco mix)", "Let's Just Call It Love (feel it mix)", "The Line (Ian O'Brien's benfleet mix)", "Live Together (big beat mix)", "All Around The World (American club mix)", "I'm Leavin (Hex Hector NYC rough mix)", "Never Never Gonna Give You Up (Frankie Knuckles classic club mix)", "What Did I Do To You (Morales mix)", "You Can't Deny It (Sky King mix)", and lots lots more!

Lisa StansfieldReal Love (2CD/DVD set) ... CD
Arista/Edsel (UK), 1991. New Copy 2CD & DVD ... $21.99
Lisa Stansfield's second solo album – slightly less sublime than the first, but still a heck of a soul album that's really held up wonderfully over the years! Tracks have that warm and smooth approach that made her early work so great – a real return to solid soul after the tinnyness of the 80s, a sound embraced by Lisa and contemporaries like Sybil, Soul II Soul, and others. And yes, she's about as pasty-white as can be on the cover – but she's got a vocal style that's all-soul, all the way! Titles include "Real Love", "Change", "I Will Be Waiting", "Soul Deep", "Make Love To Ya", "First Joy", "All Woman", and "It's Got To Be Real". Great package – with a heavy book-style cover, plus 18 bonus tracks that include "A Little More Love", "Tendery", "First Joy", and "Whenever You're Gone" – as well as loads of great mixes of cuts on the album – by Masters At Work, Driza Bone, Frankie Knuckles, and others! DVD has 6 music videos of songs on the record, 2 live cuts, and a 2014 interview too! CD

Three DegreesThree Degrees Live ... CD
Philadelphia International/Edsel (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $4.99
The Philly trio gets some great live work done in this tasty little set – hitting the stage with backings from Richard Barrett, and singing before a very enthusiastic crowd in the UK! The style's almost a bit more like the Motown live albums from years back than most Philly International sets – still in the soaring clubby mood of the group's studio work, but with a lot more interplay with the audience, and a style that's sometimes looser and more entertainment-oriented – especially in the choice of a few of the tunes. Titles include "Living For The City/For The Love Of Money", "Love Train", "Harlem", "When Will I See You Again", "Year Of Decision", and "Free Ride". CD

✨✧ Lost GenerationSly, Slick & The Wicked/Young, Tough, & Terrible ... CD
Brunswick/Edsel (UK), 1970. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A harmony soul dream! The Lost Generation were one of the masterpiece groups of the Chicago soul scene of the late 60's, and they only cut 2 albums – both of which are darn rare, and both of which (thankfully!) are on this CD! The records are great harmony soul – with a sound that rivals the east coast groups of the early 70s. The group covers a few tracks from those groups – but it's the original material that's really fantastic, like the supremely echoey "Sly, Slick, & The Wicked", the rightous "This Is The Lost Generation", and lots of other nice ones like "Sure Is Funky", "Talking The Teenage Language", "Sorry, I Can't Help You", "Someday", "You Only Get Out Of Love (What You Put In)", and "Young, Tough, & The Terrible". Great stuff – and with 23 tracks in all, including a few non-LP tracks! CD

✨✧ Tyrone DavisCan I Change My Mind/Turn Back The Hands Of Time ... CD
Dakar/Edsel (UK), 1969/1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Stunning soul from one of Chicago's greatest! Tyrone was one of Chicago's finest singers of the 60s – and he managed to create a whole new sound in the city by mixing his raw west side vocals with some stunning uptown Dakar/Brunswick production. The two albums on this CD are his finest from the early days – and they're a beautiful batch of soaring soul grooves, recorded by Tyrone in this prime early period, with arrangements by guys like Don Myrick and Willie Henderson – both of whom know how to really pack a punch! Tyrone's not lapsing into bluesy cliches here, and instead keeps things wonderfully soulful – especially on the title tracks, and on great cuts like "A Woman Needs To Be Loved", "If It's Love That You're After", "I Keep Coming Back", "Love Bones", and "Let Me Back In". 21 cuts in all – and both albums are great!

Brunswick/Edsel (UK), 1973/1974/1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
As with many of the Brunswick Chicago soul artists, Tyrone Davis' albums for the label often repeated tracks from one to another (that was Brunswick's way of cashing in on the big hits!). Fortunately, the folks at Edsel have sorted through these last 3 albums for the label to come up with all the exclusive cuts, giving you a total of the 20 tracks that made up all 3 albums in the title, without any repetition. The material's still fine fine soul from Tyrone – and catches him before he moved onto Columbia, and adopted a smoother soul sound. Cuts include "Home Wrecker", "It's All In The Game", "It Ain't Me No More", "Turning Point", "Forever", "I Can't Bump", "I Wish It Was Me", and "I Wake Up Crying". CD
