✨✧ ArtisticsI'm Gonna Miss You/The Articulate Artistics ... CD
Brunswick/Edsel (UK), 1967/1968. Used ... $17.99
2 rare albums by this great Chicago soul group! The Artistics were one of the city's first big soul groups after the Impressions, and they honed their skills on the Okeh label, then moved over to Brunswick for some bigger hits. This nice set brings together 2 of their rare Brunswick albums – the more obscure I'm Gonna Miss You, and the semi-hit album The Articulate Artistics. The group had a great talent for mixing sweeter tracks with more uptempo ones – as you'll hear on the mix of tracks that includes "Sweeter Than Sugar", "There Is No Sadness", "On & On", "That's What My Lady Says", "Girl I Need You", "Hard To Carry On", "Man With Feeling", "Hope We Have", "Love Song", "The Other Side Of Sadness", and more!

Archie Bell & The DrellsDance Your Troubles Away ... CD
TSOP/Edsel (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $6.99
Although Archie Bell & The Drells had recorded earlier with Gamble & Huff on Atlantic, this is their first album for the team's own label – and it's a killer! In a way, Archie and group were sort of responsible for getting Gamble & Huff their own famous imprint in the first place – because their work with the team on Atlantic yielded some instant hits that really pointed the way towards the hit Gamble & Huff style of the 70s, and that sound is brought up-to-date nicely on this set. The record really retains the strong vocal sound of earlier years – and has some of the best harmonies the band ever recorded, very much in the mode of The O'Jays or Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes. McFadden & Whitehead and Bunny Sigler wrote most of the material, backing is by the Instant Funk group, and the Gamble & Huff team handled production on all cuts. Titles include "Let's Groove", "I Won't Leave You Honey, Never", The Soul City Walk", "Dance Your Troubles Away", and "I Love You (But You Don't Even Know It)". CD

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 MGsGreen Onions/Soul Dressing (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Stax/Edsel (UK), 1962/1965. New Copy ... $18.99
Two classic albums from these Stax Records legends – with bonus tracks too! First up is Green Onions – a legendary album of Memphis soul – and a full length set that helped redefine the sound of instrumental music in the 60s! The record's a monumental follow-up to Booker T & The MGs' huge hit single "Green Onions" – an extremely seductive organ-based instrumental that the band cooked up while just messing around in the studio – and it's filled with other organ-heavy grooves played by this tight Memphis quartet – a group who were just starting out at this point, but already had a sound that's unlike anyone else! The work of Booker T is especially nice – Hammond with a bit more punch than other combos of this nature – backed by some wicked guitar from Steve Cropper, bass from Lewis Steinberg, and drums from Al Jackson. The set features a nice mix of covers and original tunes – with titles that include "Green Onions", "I Got A Woman", "Twist & Shout", "Lonely Avenue", "Comin Home Baby", "Mo Onions", "Behave Yourself", and "Rinky Dink". Soul Dressing is a great little record from Booker T and group – often overlooked amidst the range between Green Onions and Melting Pot, but a very strong album of soulful Memphis instrumentals all the way through! Book's organ is bubbling hot, and the band's tight rhythm style works in a perfect laid-back mode to push the group way past the stock grooves of earlier albums – thanks to great work from the rest of the combo too. There's some mighty nice rhythm changes on this one, and a good range of non-pop tunes like "Night Owl Walk", "Chinese Checkers", "Soul Dressing", "Tic Tac Toe", "Outrage", "Home Grown", "Big Train", "Jelly Bread", and "Plum Nellie". Features 2 bonus tracks – "MG Party" and "Terrible Thing". 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

Ian DuryNew Boots & Panties!! (deluxe 2CD edition) ... CD
Edsel (UK), 1977. New Copy 2CD ... $20.99
A seminal early album from Ian Dury – recorded before his funky dancefloor crossover work, and a key link between those sides and his earlier pub rock years. Dury's wonderfully deadpan vocal approach is already very firmly in place – and in fact perhaps sounds even flatter and more disaffected next to the heady guitars and stiffly strutting instrumentation of the set. Chaz Jankel's just developing his bassy style at this point – soon to explode more strongly on later work – but the core sound is very firmly in place on the set, especially on the bonus material included with the 2CD package, which includes 4 bonus tracks pulled from singles, plus an additional 17 titles from earlier demo versions! Titles include "Wake Up & Make Love To Me", "Blockheads", "If I Was With A Woman", "Plaistow Patricia", "Blackmail Man", "My Old Man", and "I'm Partial To Your Abracadabra". Bonus tracks include "Razzle In My Pocket", "You're More Than Fair", and the classic "Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll". CD

Ian Dury & The BlockheadsDo It Yourself (2CD edition) ... CD
Edsel (UK), 1979. New Copy 2CD ... $20.99
One of the great ones from Ian Dury – a record that goes way beyond simple quirky rock, and explodes with some wonderful jazzy touches! The sound here is totally great – very much in the sway of Chaz Jankel's musical direction, and filled with great bits on sax, keyboards, and guitar that have a fair bit more warmth and soul than Dury's original records. There's actually less standout hits here – but that's ok, because the record has a really unified feel overall – strongly in the funky arty dancefloor mode that you might expect from some of the Ze Records camp. Titles include "Dance Of The Screamers", "Inbetweenies", "Quiet", "Sink My Boats", "Don't Ask Me", "This Is What We Find", and "Uneasy Sunny Day Hotsy Totsy". 2CD set features 6 bonus tracks from singles – including "Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick", and two versions of "Reasons To Be Cheerful (part 3)" – plus 6 more bonus demo tracks, and an additional 11 more live tracks from 1977!

Ian Dury & The BlockheadsLaughter (Deluxe 2CD Edition) ... CD
Edsel (UK), 1980. New Copy 2CD ... $20.99
A double CD reissue of Ian Dury & The Blockheads infamous laughter LP originally released on the legendary Stiff Records – featuring a wealth of outtakes and bonus material! Ian's gravelly voiced stories and gibberish and the loose, funky and sarcastic post disco/soul backing by the Blockheads are endearingly mean as ever! Tracks include "Superman's Big Sister", "Pardon", "Delusions Of Grandeur", "Dance Of The Crackpots", "Over The Points", "Uncoolohol", "On Mr. Peanut", "F**king Ada" and more! The bonus disc includes three outakes with vocals – "Duff 'Em Up And Do 'Em Over", "You Are Here" and "Come In No.9" – plus 13 instrumental demos including "CC's Rock", "I Know Your Name", "Manic Depression", "Back To Y-Front", "Fatback", "Peter Gunn" and more!

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

HeatwaveToo Hot To Handle/Central Heating ... CD
Columbia/Edsel (UK), 1976/1977. Used 2 CDs ... $19.99
A pair of mid 70s classics from Heawave – Too Hot To Handle & Central Heating – in a 2CD set with bonus tracks! Too Hot To Handle is a killer album of crossover soul – one that dropped like a bomb when it hit, and gave this UK group a number of big hits in America! Keyboardist Rod Temperton wrote all the tracks on the album – and he's got keen talent for both funky numbers and ballads. If soul stations played album side specials the way that classic rock stations do, side one would be in heavy rotation – as it kicks off with the funky title cut, rolls into the hit "Boogie Nights", cuts to the sample classic "Ain't No Half Steppin" (forever made famous by Big Daddy Kane), and steps into the moody ballad "Always & Forever". It's hard to beat that lineup, but side two does a pretty good job – and includes a similar mix of titles like "Super Soul Sister", "All You Do Is Dial", and "Sho'nuff Must Be Love". The CD includes 4 bonus tracks: alternate versions of "Boogie Nights", plus "Special Offer" and "Slip Your Disc To This". Central Heating is another great effort that's almost as perfectly sublime as the first! Despite their UK origin, these guys really give American late 70s soul a run for its money – hitting in a sweetly compressed sound that fuses the vocals, keyboards, and grooves together wonderfully! The album hits equally well on all burners – with some key mellow cuts, and a few funkier upbeat numbers. Titles include loads of classics – like "Mind Blowing Decisions", "Star Of A Story", "Send Out For Sunshine", "Mind Blowing Decisions, "The Groove Line", "Central Heating", "Leavin For A Dream" and more. 2 bonus tracks: remixes of "Mind Blowing Decisions" and "The Groove Line".

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

PretendersPretenders (2CD/DVD) ... CD
Sire/Edsel (UK), 1980. New Copy 2CD & DVD ... $22.99
One of the greatest mainstream rock and roll debuts of all time – and a record that still blows away just about any other later work by The Pretenders! The set's got this raw, sneering power that's neither punk, nor new wave – but which seems to be very much of that moment – a very unique blend of the group's Ohio roots and their London experience – honed to razor-sharp perfection, but never slick or polished at all. Chrissie Hynde is quite far from her ballad modes, and brings this raw, adult vibe to the record that really sets a whole new level for women in rock – never sweet, but never sexed-up either – standing as firmly in the group alongside her masculine cohorts as she does on the cover. Production is great – oddly dark in all the right ways, but with a very simple elegance – and the album's near-perfect from start to finish – with tracks that include "Precious", "The Phone Call", "Tattooed Love Boys", "Private Life", "Kid", "The Wait", and "Mystery Achievement". 2CD set features 6 more tracks from b-sides – including "Porcelain", "Cuban Slide", "Swinging London", and "Nervous But Shy" – plus 8 more demo tracks from the album, and 5 more live tracks from the same time too! DVD features 3 promo videos – "Kid", "Brass In Pocket", and "Stop Your Sobbing" – plus 6 more BBC TV appearances. 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

✨✧ Average White BandShow Your Hand/How Sweet Can You Get/Average White Band ... CD
Edsel (UK), 1973/1974. Used 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
The first chapter in the career of the Average White Band – presented here on 3 mighty albums, plus bonus tracks! First up is Show Your Hand (also issued in the US as Put It Where You Want It). Average White Band are most clearly associated with Atlantic Records during the 70s – and that label's genius move to record white soul acts for the crossover market – but this first album was recorded for MCA, and very much in the same vein as their later work. The record's not as over the top funky as some of their best work – and perhaps shows kind of a rock style that was always lurking in the group's sound – but the roots of the later greatness are still there, and the album's got more than a few nice cuts. The best track is "Reach Out", but there's some other nice groovers like "TLC" and "Twilight Zone". Package includes 8 bonus tracks, added to the album – including "Look Out Now", "It Didn't Take Me A Minute", "White Water Dreams", and "How Can You Go Home". Next up is an even greater treasure – the album How Sweet Can You Get, which was intended as the group's second MCA album, but was rejected by the label at the time – a big mistake, given how funky the record is – and what a great legacy the group was to create in years to come! Titles include early versions of some songs – with tunes that include "Keepin It To Myself", "Got The Love", "Work To Do", "There's Always Someone Waiting", "Pick Up The Pieces", and "I Just Can't Give You Up". Last up is the classic logo-covered album Average White Band – the group's first for Atlantic – and a nice slice of funk that proves that they can mix it up with the best groups of the 70s! The record's got plenty of sweet electric keyboards over smooth funky basslines – and as the years go by, the band's white boy vocals don't sound nearly as bad as we remember them. And besides, when they play their instruments so nicely – how can you hold the singing against them? Includes the killer classic "Pick Up The Pieces", sampled more times than we can remember – plus "You Got It", "Just Wanna Love You Tonight", "Person To Person", and a nice remake of the Isley Brothers' "Work To Do".
