Gene ChandlerDuke Of Soul – The Brunswick Years ... CD CD format
Brunswick/Edsel (UK), Late 60s. Used ... $14.99
Excellent compilation of some of Gene's totally hard to find Brunswick soul sides from the late 60's.

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 CD format
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

Billy PaulWhen Love Is New ... CD CD format
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

Patrice RushenPatrice/Pizzazz/Posh (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Elektra/Edsel (UK), 1978/1979/1980. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
Three wonderful albums – all wrapped up in a sweet single packag! First up is the self-titled Patrice album – a sweeeeeet groover by Patrice Rushen – her first album for Elektra, and a stunning blend of funky jazz and soul! The record really has Patrice stepping out from her earlier years at Prestige – working in some surprisingly great vocals next to tight lines on Fender Rhodes, synth, and clavinet, handled with a smooth and soulful quality that's wonderful all the way through – a blend of soul and jazz that few other players could do this well – no matter how many others tried to copy her style over the years! Rhythms are as hard and heavy as on the Prestige years, and the keyboards have a great sort of focus too – just the right mix of jazz to offset the vocals – which themselves are a wonderful discovery. The whole album's a gem – and tracks include the great funky classic "Hang It Up", plus "Changes (In Your Life)", "When I Found You", "Play", "Didn't You Know?", and "Music Of The Earth". Features bonus tracks "Hang It Up (12" version)" and "Play (12" version)". Next is Pizzazz – one of the records that not only broke Patrice out of the jazz funk ghetto, but which also had a pretty profound influence on the progression of soul in the early 80s – really pushing the use of jazzy elements that would help take R&B to a new level with bigger artists. Patrice plays keyboards and sings, and the sound's a sweet mix of funk and soul, smoothed down to get everything in the door at the same time. Titles include "Givin It Up Is Givin Up", "Call On me", "Haven't You Heard", and "Let The Music Take Me". On Posh, Patrice is at the height of her powers – equally magic on keyboards and vocals, and coming up with groove after groove in a sublime blend of 70s jazz funk and Minnie Riperton-esque soul! The whole album's a winner – real magic that never gets old, and the kind of LP that makes you understand why you'll find Patrice's records in just about any soul collection from the time! Tracks include "I Need Your Love", "Time Will Tell", "The Dream", "Never Gonna Give You Up", and "Don't Blame Me". Features bonus tracks "Look Up (long version)" and "Never Gonna Give You Up". CD

New Patrice RushenStraight From The Heart/Now (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Elektra/Edsel (UK), 1982/1984. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
A pair of 80s classics from the great Patrice Rushen! First up is Straight From The Heart – a huge album for Patrice Rushen – thanks largely to the track "Forget Me Nots", which is a perfect blend of jazz and soul, in that warm sweet style she was forging after her early days as more of a fusion artist. The rest of the album's every bit as great – and the songwriting and quality of the work shows that Patrice, like other jazz funkateers of her generation, was every bit as capable of changing round her styles and still staying strong. Titles include "I Was Tired Of Being Alone", "Where There Is Love", "Breakout", "If Only", and "Remind Me". Also features bonus tracks – "Forget Me Nots (special dance mix 12")", "Breakout (12" version)", "Number One (inst 12" version)", "Forget Me Nots (single)", and "I Was Tired Of Being Alone (Byron Clark rmx)". The album Now is filled with sweet grooves from the lovely lady – one of Patrice Rushen's last truly great albums, and a masterpiece of 80s groove with lots of jazzy touches! The keyboard sound has evolved a bit here – compressed with more electronic percussion than on Patrice's earlier records, but still done with a degree of soul that sets it apart from work by most of her contemporaries! Titles include "Gotta Find It", "Gone With The Night", "My Love's Not Going Anywhere", "High In Me", "To Each His Own", "Heartache Heartbreak", and "Feels So Real". Features bonus tracks "Get Off (dance mix)", "Get Off (inst)", "Feels So Real (inst)", and "Feels So Real (dub)". CD

Lisa StansfieldAffection (2CD/DVD set) ... CD CD format
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 StansfieldFace Up (2CD/DVD set) ... CD CD format
Arista/Edsel (UK), 2001. New Copy 2CD & DVD ... $21.99
Lisa Stansfield expands her groove, but loses none of her soul in the process – on a record that keeps on reminding us why Lisa's music is such a delight to our ears over the years! Some cuts have those rock-solid rhythms that got Stansfield going so strongly at the end of the 80s – and others open up into territory that's both more creative from a contemporary London perspective, and more traditional from an R&B approach – creating this wider palette of Lisa's sounds, without ever sounding forced or stretched too thin at all! The whole thing's great – another feather in Stansfield's mighty large musical cap – and titles include "Boyfriend", "Wish On Me", "8 3 1", "I've Got Something Better", "Let's Just Call It Love", "How Could You", and "When The Last Sun Goes Down". Great package – with heavy cover, great notes, and 16 bonus tracks that include "All Over Me", "More Than Sex", "Can't Wait To", and lots of remixes of tracks from the album. DVD features the video for "Let's Just Call It Love", plus a 17 track live performance at Ronnie Scott's from 2002! CD

Lisa StansfieldLisa Stansfield (2CD/DVD set) ... CD CD format
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 StansfieldReal Love (2CD/DVD set) ... CD CD format
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

Lisa StansfieldSo Natural (2CD/DVD set) ... CD CD format
Arista/Edsel (UK), 1993. New Copy 2CD & DVD ... $21.99
A great title for this gem of a record from Lisa Stansfield – as the album's got a feel that's maybe even warmer and more natural than Lisa's previous records – and those were already pretty darn great! At a point when Stansfield could have gone for more clunky, commercial work, she instead only deepens her groove – really fine-tuning her role as a classic-styled soul singer, and even working with John Barry at one point! Titles include "So Natural", "Goodbye", "Marvellous & Mine", "Sweet Memories", "Never Set Me Free", "I Give You Everything", "Little Bit Of Heaven", "In All The Right Places", and "Be Mine". Great package – book-style cover, and 15 bonus tracks tha tinclude "Someday I'm Coming Back", "Gonna Try It Anyway", and remixes of tracks from the album! DVD features promo videos for 5 tracks from the record – plus 2014 interview footage. CD

Three DegreesThree Degrees Live ... CD CD format
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
Also available Three Degrees Live ... LP 0.99

Dionne WarwickWindows Of The World/In The Valley Of The Dolls/Promises, Promises/Soulful (plus bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Scepter/Edsel (UK), 1967/1968/1972. New Copy 3CD ... $19.99
Four albums on three CDs – with lots of bonus tracks as well! Windows Of The World is seminal later work from Dionne Warwick – an album that perfectly sums up her evolving genius at Scepter Records! Windows continues the very successful Bacharach-led arrangement scheme – but also features Dionne deepening things a bit more vocally, and also hitting some more personal notes on a few tunes arranged by Peter Matz. 11 titles in all – including "The Windows Of The World", "I Say A Little Prayer", "Love", "Taking A Chance On Love", "(There's) Always Something There To Remind Me", "The Beginning Of Loneliness", "What's Good About goodbye", "Taking A Chance On Love", and "Somewhere". Valley Of The Dolls is not really the soundtrack for the movie – but a sweet batch of tracks that feature the lovely Dionne Warwick singing the title tune – and stretching out on a host of other great 60s numbers too! The album was recorded in two different sessions, mostly with backings by Burt Bacharach – who always makes his own music sound great – with a bit of extra help from Pat Williams, Manny Albam, and Garry Sherman – who each get a tune to work with. Gone is the dreamy optimism of some of Dionne's earlier albums – and in its place is a more mature, slightly sadder style that's really great. Titles include "Valley Of The Dolls", "For The Rest Of My Life", "Do You Know The Way To San Jose", "Silent Voices", "Let Me Be Lonely", "You're My World", "Where Would I Go", and "Walking Backwards Down The Road". Promises Promises is filled with sublime sounds from Dionne Warwick – a classic Scepter Records set produced by Burt Bacharach, who also wrote a good number of the tunes too! Arrangements are by a few different top-shelf studio talents – Don Sebesky, Peter Matz, and Bacharach himself – all in that breathy gentle style that works so well with Dionne's vocals. Titles include "Promises Promises", "This Girl's In Love With You", "Where Is Love", "Who Is Gonna Love Me", "Where Am I Going", "Whoever You Are I Love You", and "Wanting Things". On Soulful, Dionne Warwick working with Memphis producer Chips Moman, in a mode that's clearly designed to give her more credibility with the hipper soul scene at the end of the 60s! Burt Bacharach's still in the shadows, but Moman's the real genius on this set – working with Dionne to create a style that's got some of the same touches as Aretha Franklin's work on Atlantic, but a bit smoother overall – in keeping with the Warwick vocal mode. Dionne opens up amazingly in the set – hitting notes never heard on the Bacharach sides, and going for an almost gospel-inspired approach on a few numbers. Tracks includes "I'm Your Puppet", "You've Lost That Loving Feeling", "You're All I Need To Get By", "Do Right Woman", "People Get Ready", "We Can Work It Out", and "People Got To Be Free". CD features 19 bonus tracks that include "Give A Damn", "To Be Young Gifted & Black", "Stand", "Hurt So Bad", "The Weight", "The Love Of My Man", "Slaves", "Odds & Ends", and "The April Fools". CD

A darn nice compilation of Screamin' Jay's classic work for the Okeh label – and just about the only way you'll get his work on vinyl! The set includes the classic "I Put A Spell On You", plus loads of other crazy numbers like "Little Demon", "Alligator Wine", "Yellow Coat", "Orange Colored Sky", and "Frenzy". And sure, this is the stuff that Screamin Jay later says that he regretted recording – but it's still a lot better than anything he did since! LP, Vinyl record album

New BohannonFootstompin' Music – The Best Of Bohannon ... CD CD format
Edsel/Brunswick (UK), Early/Mid 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Killer funky instrumentals! Although Hamilton Bohannon later went onto make a lot of weak disco records, his early work for the Brunswick label was incredible – a mad bunch of rhythms with a pace that's unlike any other funk we can think of. Bohannon really had a way with a beat – coming up with skipping grooves that pushed the boundary of funk, taking things to a new level with strange syncopations supporting trimmed-down instrumentation – all in a mode that made for some lean, clean funk with a very unusual edge! This set brings together 14 of the best cuts from those years – and nearly all of them are tight little groovers, with a good uptempo funky feel. The set includes loads of classic funky 45 tracks – like "The Pimp Walk", "South African Man", "Stop & Go", "Bohannon Walk", "Zulu", "Truck Stop", and "Rap On Mr. DJ". Very tasty – and quite hard to find! CD

Arista/Edsel (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

New Lisa StansfieldPeople Hold On – The Remix Anthology (3CD set) ... CD CD format
Edsel (UK), Late 80s/1990s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
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!
