Ericka Blount DanoisLove Peace & Soul – Behind The Scenes Of America's Favorite Dance Show – Soul Train Classic Moments ... Book
Back Beat, 2013. New Copy ... $5.99 24.99
One of the greatest soul music TV shows ever (and one that originated in Chicago, too!) – presented here in deep detail with loads of interesting stories and anecdotes too! The book's almost a more personal history of the show than a technical one – but that's OK with us, because it really gets at the tales behind those iconic images on the screen – and the all-pro presentation of Don Cornelius too. And, in addition to the main body of the book, the publication also includes this massive show-by-show list of appearances – for 37 seasons of Soul Train, including the later rerun years – with details on the performers and dates for each show, in a section that's over 50 pages in length! The book also includes some nice color images in the middle, and is 243 pages, softcover. Book

Def Jam, 2002. Very Good+ 2LP ... $0.99

✨✧ John ColtraneMy Favorite Things ... LP
Atlantic, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful wonderful wonderful work from the legendary John Coltrane – and even though it's probably one of his best-selling albums of all time, it's still a treasure – and has an essential place in just about any jazz collection! We've heard the original title version of "My Favorite Things" a million times – but it still blows our mind the way Coltrane hits this incredibly soulful modal groove, twisting and turning on soprano sax, always keeping things interesting, so that we're surprised that the cut's 13 minutes have gone by so quickly! The rest of the record's equally great – and the 3 other long cuts are "Everytime We Say Goodbye", "Summertime" and "But Not for Me". As great today as when it was cut, and still one of Coltrane's most revelatory albums! With McCoy Tyner on piano, Steve Davis on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ My Favorite MartianMy Favorite Martian – The Complete Series Vol 1 (hardcover) ... Book
Hermes, 2011. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Very cool TV comics from the 60s – the first volume of material for the short-lived, but very groovy comic book version of My Favorite Martian! The show starred Ray Walston as a visitor from outer space, living with swinging bachelor Bill Bixby – and the comic does a good job of capturing the spirit of the show – thanks to illustrations from 60s talents who include Russ Manning, Dan Spiegle, Mike Arens, and Sparky Moore – who work well to keep the Western/Dell house style in place – full of color that makes the lively images pop nicely! Art is a strange mix of realistic representation and cartoony flourishes – which reconciles the live action show and comic book format nicely – and the hardcover book features the first five issues, plus additional images – all in full color, for a playful 191 pages.

Voilaaa (Patchworks)On Te L'Avait Dit ... CD
Favorite (France), 2015. New Copy ... $18.99
Beautiful grooves from Bruno "Patchworks" Hovart – a set that mixes his classic-styled club sound with some sweet Afro-funk touches – all to create this wonderful hybrid of sounds that makes for one of his best records in years! The style here is more in the Afro-disco mode of the late 70s – particularly the groove that occurred when African acts would get a chance to record up in Paris, and create this wicked interplay of heavier roots and European grooves – often with results that were extra-funky in the process! Earthy percussion mixes with sweet keyboards, riffing guitar, and plenty of massive basslines – and vocals are by Sir Jean, Pat Kalla, Foule Badiaga, and Renaud Bilombo. Titles include "Niarela", "Spies Are Watching Me", "On Te L'Avait Dit", "Bark", "Le Disco Des Capitales", "Vampires", "Enlevez Moi Ca", and "Jungle Fire". CD

Favorite (France), 1976. New Copy ... $16.99
A rare smooth 70s set from Hawaii – and a record that's even better musically than it is obscure! Greg Yoder had already won us completely when we flipped the album over and saw that he does a version of Stevie Wonder's "Golden Lady" – alongside really fresh remakes of "Moondance", "Parchman Farm", and Kenny Rankin's groover "Haven't We Met" – really great company of songs alongside his own material – presented by a group that also features vibes on most tracks, which step out in solos on some key moments – and really make for a different variation on the AOR sound of the time! Plus, the whole thing's got a vibe that's more indie jazz vocal than any sort of overproduced commercial material – a really charming approach served up in a relaxed Honolulu studio setting – on titles that include all the great ones listed above, plus a version of Emmitt Rhodes "You Must Have", and the cuts "Dreamer Of Life", "Things Were So Easy", and "She's So Easy".

Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
AOR sounds from around the globe – proof that sweet, smooth 70s grooves didn't just come from studios in California and New York! The records here are all relatively obscure – mostly non-American acts, but working with a wonderfully groovy, wonderfully laidback style – nicely polished, but never too slick or commercial – and very much in that special spirit that's been lauded of late by the growing waves of AOR collectors around the globe! Most numbers come across with a nicely soulful vibe, and a fair bit of jazzy inflections – and although the pace is usually somewhat slow-stepping, there's definitely a groove in place on all these tracks! Titles include "Je Suis En Amour" by Diane Tell, "Rio Sinal Verde" by Junior Mendes, "Got To Be Lovin You" by Erik Tagg, "Peppermint Park" by Paul Hart, "Space Lady" by Ulla, "In Alto Mare" by Loredana Berte, "Neon" by Placa Luminosa, and "Lihue" by Nohelani Cypriano.

Sweet sounds from around the globe – served up by a range of artists who've drawn key inspiration from the LA sound of the 70s, and manage to take the music into some great territory of their own! The sort of smooth production and tight inspiration of the Steely Dan generation had a huge impact on many – and gave singers who might have started in jazz or folk a whole new way to express themselves – stepping out with a bit of a cosmic vibe, and a warm blend of electric and acoustic instrumentation – served up here from scenes as diverse as those in France, Australia, Jamaica, Hawaii, and even the former Yugoslavia! Titles include the killer funky stepper "Two Sides" by Renee Geyer – one of our favorite Aussie soul tracks ever – plus "Long Way Home" by Jay Days, "Everything I'm Living For" by Robert Cotter, "Quelques Mots Gentils" by Carol Ray Band, "Love You Out Of Your Mind" by Byrne & Barnes, "Prepad" by Boban Petrovic, "The Shadow" by O Ji Ji, and "Things Were So Easy" by Greg Yoder.

VariousBrazilian Disco Boogie Sounds 1978 to 1982 ... CD
Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99
Brazilian grooves that sound a lot more American than you might expect – a great run of funky club cuts that are dripping with plenty of soul and jazzy instrumentation! These tracks may hail from Brazil, but they have a vibe that really shows the growing Brazilian love of American soul at the time – especially the sweet blend of styles that came into play on the dancefloors of the late 70s! None of these tracks are straight disco, and none have the too commercial styles of the European disco wave of the period – and instead, all the instrumentation is nice and tight, and done in styles you might know from bigger Brazilian groups like Banda Black Rio or Unaio Black – but served up here by more focused solo artists in the lead. Junior Santos hand-picked the tracks from his deep collection of grooves – and titles include "Moral Tem Hora" by Cristina Camargo, "Quero Um Baby Seu" by Solange, "Gosto Amargo De Vida" by Paulo Ramos, "Relax" by Painel De Controle, "Labirinto" by Famks, "Escorpiao" by Carlos Dafe, "Negra Flor" by Sandra De Sa, and "Um Momento Qualquer" by Claudia Telles.

VariousBrazilian Disco Boogie Sounds Vol 2 – 1977 to 1984 ... CD
Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
Tremendous work from the Brazilian scene of the 70s – one of the few global sites to really capture the same sort of energy of American funk and soul, yet still be able to give it a great local twist of its own! From the bossa years onwards, Brazil was always full of super-tight musicians – and by the time the 70s rolled around, there were plenty of records with grooves as great as work in the US from greats like Kool & The Gang or Earth Wind & Fire – both groups who've clearly provided a lot of inspiration to most of the acts on this set! And like some of the best American groups, the Brazilian once started to change their style a bit once the 70s came to a close – with these lean, funky modes that are mighty nice – and which were maybe already more present in Brazil than they were in the American mainstream. But all that history aside, this is one smoking little set – killer clubby funk tracks that have a flavor that's completely universal, even if you can't understand the lyrics – but even the way those lyrics are sung, they're plenty darn catchy, even without the benefit of language. Titles include "Amgio Branca" by Marcia Maria, "To Parada Nua Tua" by Almir Ricardi, "Contigo" by Adriana, "Cara Feita" by Kaito, "Alegria No Ar" by Rosana, "Natureza Viva" by Brenda, "Minas Do Rei Salomao" by Cristina Camargo, and "Valeu A Pena" by Lady Zu.

VariousCaribbean Disco Boogie Sounds – Rare & Obscure Gems From The Caribbean Territories 1977 to 1982 ... CD
Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99
A killer collection of funky soul from the Caribbean – not tracks that have a typical island sort of sound, with roots in calypso, soca, or reggae – and instead just he kind of key cuts that match the best underground work on the New York scene! Keep in mind that lots of American disco came from musicians who'd moved up north from the Caribbean – bringing a sunny spirit and driving rhythms in the process, as well as a post-colonial, diaspora approach to the music – which was then fused with American soul and funk for the clubs! This set has a very similar vibe, but just reverses the process – with grooves that borrow plenty from the hipper club styles of the late 70s and early 80s, and come across with a freshly non-commercial vibe, given their Caribbean roots. We'd never heard most tracks here before – hats off to Waxist for compiling the collection – and titles include "Cosmopolitan London" by Ray Williams, "Praise Jah" by Oluko Imo, "My African Religion" by Paul Hurlock, "Going To The Party" by Barry Bryson, "Let Me Love You" by Teddy Davis, and "Macho Man" by Eddie & The Movement.

Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
That's a mighty sexy cover on the front – and the grooves inside definitely have the flavor to match! The work here is from the obscure French disco underground – a European scene that never got the same exposure as German or Italian work for clubs – which makes the whole package a really great discovery in sound! The music is surprisingly fresh, and often quite funky too – and done in modes that are arguably warmer and more soulful than most other European disco – and often a lot like the best American underground club of the period. Some tracks have breathy female vocals, while others have bolder lyrics that almost echo some of the global musical crossovers happing in 70s Paris and a few of the later tracks bring in electro elements, but in a subtle way we totally love. The collection's a follow-up to the Brazilian Disco Boogie Sounds compilation – and like that one, it's really a cut above the usual! Titles include "Super Star" by Contessa, "Lady Jones" by Over Drive, "Music Madness (ext Charles Maurice version)" by Beckie Bell, "Y'A Du Blues" by Marche Noire, "Un Fait Divers & Rien De Plus (re-remix)" by Le Club, "Pour Moi Ca Va (Charles Maurice version)" by France Lise, "Polar (Charles Maurice version)" by Bernard Guyvan, and "Minuit L'Heure Du Swing" by Didier Makaga.

A wicked boogie from from Magic Source – a contemporary recording, but one with a classic sort of vibe! That quality's no surprise, given that Bjorn Wagner's at the head – fresh from experience in the Mighty Mocambos, but showing much more of a late 70s club style here – with lots of snapping percussion, sweet keyboard lines, a sax solo, and female chorus vocals – almost making the whole thing sound like some of the grooviest French club tracks from years back!

The original mix is already great enough – and the extended Waxist edit is even cooler – fleshed out in a really great way, with an expansive vibe to the vocals and keyboards. "Take Me To New York City" is equally wonderful – very upbeat, but never too much so – and with a sweet keyboard solo right at the start, before Lamar's great vocals send the whole thing home! 12-inch, Vinyl record

The grooves are plenty tight, but also stretch out nicely to the sky, too – almost taking on a proggish tinge at points, but without any jamming – just a bit of majesty on some of the vocals, and a strong, powerful lead on some of the fuzzy guitars! Most tracks have some sort of lead vocals, but there are a few instrumentals too – and titles include "Egg", "Hiroshima", "Love Like This", "Delusion", "I Got A Dream Of My Own", "Feeling On My Mind", and "The Lonely Man".

Alessandro AlessandroniPrisma Sonora ... CD
Cometa (Italy), 1972. New Copy ... $19.99
A dream of a record from the legendary Alessandro Alessandroni – an obscure sound library set, but one that we'd rank right up there with our favorite Italian soundtrack classics of the time! Alessandroni's going for a very Morricone-like feel here – lots of spacious rhythms, isolated instruments, and a feel that's watery, but never sleepy – kind of a liquid groove that's really beautiful throughout! Instruments are nice and compressed – way down in the rhythms, and stepping along with a La Donna Invisible quality that's really sublime – just a few electric touches, but mostly acoustic, and with an equal sense of grace and groove. Titles include "Dialoghi D'Amore", "Punti Di Vista", "Breve Dialettica", "Vocali Sul Pentagramma", and "Aspetti Musicali". CD

✨✧ Eric AlexanderNightlife In Tokyo ... CD
Milestone, 2002. Used ... $11.99
Always-great work from Eric Alexander – one of our favorite tenor players of the modern age, and a talent who gets better and better with each album! This one features Eric working with pianist Harold Mabern – in a wonderful union that's been forged over the course of a number of records, and which seems to be one of the greatest things that's happened to either player. Mabern lays out loads of wonderful modal lines in the set – keeping a rhythmic pulse that stretches out Alexander's solos in sweeping brilliance on the upbeat tracks, holding them back with gentle soul on the mellower ones. The rest of the group is completed by Ron Carter on bass and Joe Farnsworth on drums – and titles include "Nemesis", "I Can Dream, Can't I?", "Nightlife In Tokyo", "Cold Smoke", "Island", and "Big RC".

Lorez AlexandriaSings The Songs of Johnny Mercer Vol 1 ... LP
Discovery, 1981. Very Good+ ... $5.99
While not as funky as some of her other records for Discovery, this tasty session of vocal tracks still has Lorez singing in a beautifully soulful style, of the type that she's finally getting recognition for these days! The lady has always been one of our favorite vocalists, and she's got some nice backing here from the Mike Wofford trio, plus some additional tenor and flute work by Herman Riley. The whole thing's got a very nice round soulful sound – and titles include "Days of Wine & Roses", "I Remember You", "Early Autumn", and "My Shining Hour". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lorez AlexandriaStar Eyes ... CD
Muse, 1993. Used ... $1.99
Always-great work from singer Lorez Alexandria – still sounding wonderful, even at this late date! Her presentation's a bit earthier than before, but no less poised than on earlier sessions – with the same sense of space and timing that's always made her one of our favorite jazz singers! And as always, there's a soulfulness to the music that really makes the whole thing sparkle – a sound that goes way past overdone torchy vocals, or hackney sets of standards – in that unique space that Lorez seems to inhabit nearly on her own. Backing is by a group that includes Houston Person on tenor, Bruce Forman on guitar, and Michael Carvin on drums – and titles include "Star Eyes", "Make Someone Happy", "My One & Only Love", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "Long Ago & Far Away", and "You Stepped Out Of A Dream".

✨✧ Nancy AmesSpiced With Brasil ... LP
Epic, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Bossa with a great American twist! Nancy Ames was an American pop singer of the 60s – one who did mostly folksy tunes with a light California feel, and who here is coming up with some great bossa nova numbers, set to arrangements by Stu Phillips! The package has all the sunniness of a summer LA afternoon at the beach – with the driving groove of a pop bossa session from Rio. The album's perennial favorite is Nancy's remake of "Mas Que Nada" (done here as "Pow Pow Pow") – but there's loads of other wonderful numbers, and the whole album's great! Titles include "Laia La Daia", "Love's Like Wine", "So Nice", and "A Man & A Woman". As the song says – Pow Pow Pow! Her greatest LP by a mile, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Murphy AndersonBuck Rogers In The 25th Century – The Complete Sudays 1958 to 1959 (hardcover) ... Book
Hermes, 2014. New Copy ... $15.99 40.00
One of our favorite sci-fi comics artists ever – presented here in a short but wonderful run on the Buck Rogers Sunday pages of the late 50s! Murphy Anderson is a genius – an artist whose work on DC titles like Hawkman, Strange Adventures, Mystery In Space, and even Superman helped define a generation – really giving a slick, clean line to the look of comics in the silver age – and concurrent with the start of that run, Anderson also took over the Buck Rogers newspaper strip for its large Sunday pages – which are presented here in stunning color, in a beautifully oversized book! Anderson's as great here as on some other series – like The Atomic Knights – and although the book only has the Sunday pages, they work together to form a single story week to week, without the need for daily pages. 80 pages, oversize, and in full color.

Earl AnderzaOuta Sight ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1962. Very Good+ ... $28.99
A lost treasure from the glory days of the LA soul jazz bop scene of the early 60s! Alto player Earl Anderza has this crazy tone that's unlike anything we've ever heard – and he plays with a calculated approach to atonality that hints at later work by Ayler and others – but which comes across here a lot more straight ahead. Unlike Ayler, Anderza is backed by a tight soul jazz combo that includes stunning work by pianist Jack Wilson, one of our all-time favorite players – working here on both straight piano and electric harpsichord – which has a very crazy sound! Other players include George Morrow and Jimmy Bond on bass, plus Donald Dean on drums – and titles include "Blues Baroque", "Freeway", "Benign", and a great version of Wilson's modal classic "Outa Sight"!

Horace AndyFeel Good All Over – Anthology 1970-1976 ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
Okay. . .okay, there may be a few other singers we like to hold up as our favorite (like Jimmy Cliff), but for real, Horace Andy's at the top of the heap. Maybe it's because we're from Chicago and have a soft spot for sweet falsetto a la Eugene Record or Curtis Mayfield, though we'd never claim Andy hasn't got his own thing going on. In any case, his sweet soulful vocals bless a lot of wonderful tracks on this 2CD anthology of his earlier years . You get awhopping 46 tracks on this 2CD compilation focusing on 1970-1976, produced by Phil Pratt, Bunny Lee and others. Includes "I Feel Good All Over", "Lonely Woman", "You Are My Angel", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Rain From The Skys", "Dream Lover", "Riding For A Fall", "Can I Change Your Mind", "My Guiding Star", "Psalm 68", "The Love Of A Woman", "Nice And Easy", "Get Wise", "True Love Shines Bright" and many more.

Ashford & SimpsonGimme Something Real (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Big Break (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $14.99
One of our favorite albums from this legendary duo – Nick Ashford & Valerie Simpson's first album for Warner Brothers, and compared to the numbers moved by biggest hits, you could call this one a hidden gem – filled with near perfect mellow soul jams and more sweetly soaring groovers alike! There are moments that steer it into more of a rootsy style, kind of an intimate take on the LA soul sound with easy going, elegant backings and production that's nicely tailored to voices, particular Valerie's lovely vocals – but those lead to bigger emotional payoff that hit you deep! This is an underappreciated early effort from the duo as a headlining act, and finds them setting up to change the sound of R&B to come! Titles include "Can You Make It Brother", "Bend Me", "Gimme Something Real", "I'm Determined", "I Need Your Light", "Anywhere", and "Have You Ever Tried It". CD features bonus tracks – the never-issued "Have You Ever Tried It (long version)" and 'I'd Know You Anywhere (single version)". CD

Roy AyersSoulful Vibes – Jazz Club ... CD
Polydor/Jazzclub (Germany), 1970s. New Copy ... $8.99
A cool collection of work from one of our favorite artists ever – literally one of the guys whose music was so great, it inspired us to start Dusty Groove! The package brings together a really hip assortment of Roy Ayers' best work for Polydor in the 70s – really incredible tracks that merge together jazz, soul, and funk at a level that nobody else can touch – not just the sum of the parts, but a sublime fusion that's completely Ayers-like, and which has gone onto inspire countless other folks over the years – even though nobody else can ever do it this well! The track selection is great – way hipper than the usual best-of on Roy – and titles include "And Don't You Say No", "Moving Grooving", "Come Out & Play", "Magic Lady", "Don't You Worry Bout A Thing", "Vibrations", "Tear To A Smile", "When Is Real Real", "Together", "He's A Superstar", and "He Gives Us All His Love".

Roy AyersVibrations ... CD
Polydor, 1976. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
One of Roy Ayers' greatest albums of the 70s – a set that tightens up the groove from previous Polydor productions, yet still keeps all the soul intact! The record picks up the style begun with the Mystic Voyage album, and pushes it to some slightly tighter territory – a more focused Roy Ayers sound that's totally great, and which makes the album sparkle wonderfully throughout! All aspects of Roy's talents are perfectly balanced here – his warm vocals and jazzy vibes, his uptempo grooves and mellower rhythms – played to perfection by a hip lineup of players that includes Philip Woo on electric piano, Justo Almario on tenor sax, and Steve Cobb on drums. Edwin Birdsong guests a bit on the record – bringing in a nice edge to a few tunes – the album's got a really unique dark undercurrent, even in smoother moments – that subtle Roy Ayers' approach that's always made him one of our all-time favorite artists. Titles include the wonderful jazz-tinged "Searching", a great midtempo stepper that we really love; the funky break track "The Memory", a righteous number that feels like work from earlier records; the clubby classic "One Sweet Love to Remember"; and the sweet instrumental "Vibrations", which has a mellow kickback feel! Other tunes include "Higher", "Domelo (Give It To Me)", "Baby I Need Your Love", and "Better Days". CD

B & G RhythmB & G Rhythm ... LP
Polydor, 1978. Very Good ... $7.99
An excellent album of fusion-inspired soul – recorded for Wayne Henderson's At-Home productions, and done with a jazzy vibe that's simply tremendous! The album features some really great work by by Bobby Lyle and Roland Bautista – and at some level, the whole thing's got a sound that's right up there with Lyle's best Capitol work of the time. Our favorite track here is the massive "Hibaros", a great long fusion jammer, that starts out with a tasty drum break, then rolls into soaring keyboards, and a nice smooth stepper's groove. The whole album's great, though, and other tracks include "Teresa", "I Know You", and "Earth Light". LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Bailey2 Feet In The Gutter ... LP
Epic, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99
Hardbop albums don't get any better than this – and although drummer Dave Bailey only recorded for a brief stretch as a leader, this session's one that shows that he was a heck of a force to contend with! The record's got an intensity that easily rivals the best by Art Blakey over at Blue Note during the early 60s – but Dave's also got a slightly looser groove too – a bit more sense of humanity, and one that allows for really organic interplay between the players. There's a slight soul jazz undercurrent – especially in the piano lines of Billy Gardner – and other players in the quintet include Bill Hardman on trumpet, Frank Haynes on tenor, and Ben Tucker on bass. The group wails on an early version of Tucker's classic "Comin' Home Baby", plus other great originals like "Coffee Walk", "Lady Iris B", and "Two Feet In the Gutter".

Ray BarrettoSenor 007 ... LP
United Artists, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of our favorite Ray Barretto albums of the 60s – a real gem from the pre-Latin Soul years! The album's a clear attempt to cash in on the cash in on the James Bond craze of the time – issued by United Artists, who were releasing the Bond films, but also had Ray under contract during the period too. But despite that simple gimmick, it's a great little set – with a quality level that goes way beyond Bond soundtracks, or the usual from Barretto at the time! The tracks are all hard and groovy, with an excellent jazz feel – and some killer arranging from Ray that's right up there with the work he did for his legendary Charanga Moderna album! You may recognize the song titles – but their versions here are superb, and the album's filled with many many wonderful moments that step out with mad rhythms and great jazzy touches. Titles include "Mister Kiss Kiss Bang Bang", "OO7", "Search For Vulcan", "Thunderball", and "Goldfinger". Nice "spy" shot of Ray on the cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Beach BoysBeach Boys' Party – Uncovered & Unplugged ... CD
Capitol, 1965. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.98
A really cool little album from the Beach Boys – in a stripped down way we've never heard it before! The original version definitely takes its "party" title seriously, in a way that has the group singing in a somewhat live and spontaneous manner! There's sort of a "live in studio" feel here – with production that's less polished than on other records, and instrumentation that's heavy on acoustic guitar and percussion – almost like the group are hanging out at the beach, riffing on some of their favorite tunes. The album features the group's famous take on "Barbara Ann" – plus versions of a number of other 60s classics, like "The Times They Are A Changin", "Papa Oom Mow Mow", "Mountain Of Love", "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away", "Devoted To You", "Alley Oop", and "I Should Have Known Better". This great 2015 2CD version includes the classic original album and new version with added "party" elements stripped away, for a truer representation of the Beach Boys studio sound – a massive 81 bonus tracks, pulled from five different sessions in August and September of 1965!

A stormer from Archie Bell & The Drells – one of our favorite soul albums ever, and a masterpiece of mid-tempo soul! Archie Bell & The Drells sound amazing here – light years from the rougher funk of their earlier years, yet still with a groove that's undeniable – an incredible meeting of soul music scenes handled by the young Gamble & Huff team – who not only produce most of the record, but also wrote most of the tracks on the set! The groove is lightly lilting, and totally on the money – a sound that's incredible, and hard to describe in words – but which really grabs us from the get-go. All tracks are great, and totally fresh – and tunes include "I Love My Baby", "Houston Texas", "Showdown", "My Balloon's Going Up", "Giving Up Dancing", "Girl You're Too Young", and "Green Power". CD
