✨✧ Edwin BirdsongShe's Wrapped Too Tight (long, short) ... 12-inch
Salsoul, 1982. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A nice little electro number by Edwin Birdsong – every bit as crazy as his best 70s work! The tune snaps and percolates with a nice little groove – almost breaking, with some electronic touches, a slight bit of rapping, and a dark approach to the production that makes the whole thing feel a bit spooky! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Roy AyersTear To A Smile ... LP
Polydor, 1975. Near Mint- (reissue)... $9.99
One of the best early soul albums by Roy Ayers! Roy's working here with Dee Dee Bridgewater, Edwin Birdsong, William Allen, Harry Whitaker, and other hip players – a perfect crew to forge Roy's unique blend of jazz and soul. This is perhaps the first record to really have Roy stretching out in this mode – moving more fully away from funky jazz, into a ream of vocal tracks that would make him one of the most unique artists of the 70s. This mid 70s period of Roy's career was remarkably fertile, creatively as well as for sheer productivity – and Tears To A Smile is one of them that shows some the most artistic growth, and also a deeper sense of soul! Features righteous cuts like "2000 Black", "Ebony Blaze", "Time & Space", and "A Tear To A Smile" – plus the mellow "Magic Lady", and a great remake of Earth Wind & Fire's "That's The Way Of The World". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ MtumeKiss This World Goodbye ... LP
Epic, 1978. Near Mint- ... $24.99
An early crossover set from Mtume – one that still holds onto some of the elements first forged in the spiritual jazz underground of the early 70s, yet one that also starts to showcase more of the tighter soul groove he'd burst into prominence in the early 80s! The blend is a great one, and makes the album one of Mtume's most compelling records – as even amidst some of the more grooving numbers, there's some great offbeat elements at work too – almost putting the record in the territory of work by Roy Ayers or Edwin Birdsong. The mighty Hubert Eaves contributes lots of great keyboards to the record, and famous partner Reggie Lucas plays guitar – while Mtume himself sings along with his percussion, and also gets some female vocal help from Tawatha. Titles include the sublime "The Closer I Get To You" – plus "Just Funnin", "Kiss This World Goodbye", "Love Lock", "Metal Flake Mind", and "This Is Your World". LP, Vinyl record album
