First ChoiceStars Of Salsoul – For Listening, For Dancing, For Turning On A Party ... LP
Salsoul (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99
A heady collection of work from the famous Philly soul trio First Choice – a group who'd already been around for years before these recordings, but who really hit their stride with the style of Salsoul Records! The label's mix of soul and club worked perfectly for the girls – really setting their vocals free – and their style seemed especially at home with the label's strong use of remixers, which is really featured here! The package brings together all rare 12" mixes of some classics by First Choice for the label – and titles include "Double Cross (Shep Pettibone 12" mix)", "Love Thang (Tee Scott rmx)", "Breakaway (Tee Scott 12" mix)", "Let No Man Put Asunder (Shep Pettibone 12" mix)", "Doctor Love (Tom Moulton 12" mix)", "I Can Show You (Tee Scott 12" mix)", "Let No Man Put Asunder (Frankie Knuckles rmx)", and "Double Cross (Larry Levan 12" mix)".

Philly Groove/KRL (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
22 tracks from one of the most important female groups of the 70s! First Choice were seminal in the transformation of 60s girl group soul into a 70s club diva sound – and their work here with producer Stan Watson and arranger Norman Harris was virtually the blueprint for all other east coast girl groups to follow during the decade! The set includes work from the girls' first two albums for Philly Groove, plus a number of single tracks and other hard to find gems. The styles on the set are a mix of early disco, sweet soul, and female harmony – and titles include "The Player", "Smarty Pants", "Newsy Neighbors", "Love Freeze", "Guilty", "Armed & Extremely Dangerous", "Gotta Get Away", "Hustler Bill", "Let Him Go", "Gonna Keep On Lovin Him", "A Boy Named Junior", "All I Need Is Time", "Runnin Out Of Fools", "This Is The House", and "This Little Woman".

People's ChoiceAny Way You Wanna – The People's Choice Anthology 1971 to 1981 ... CD
Big Break (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
Funky Philly soul at its finest! This is the first-ever People's Choice compilation we've seen – all the more impressive for pulling together essential recordings made for the Philadelphia International, Casablanca, TSOP, West End and Phil-LA Of Soul labels – recordings that cover an incredible decade-long run! People's Choice burst out of the gate in the early 70s with a wave of funky, electric piano flavored singles – soon catching the attention of Gamble & Huff, which helped open doors both commercially and creatively in the years that followed. We'd be hard pressed to pick a finer batch of tracks from early 70s to early 80s than you'll find here – including standout early singles and album tracks, rarer B-sides and single mixes – when considered all together really showing the group in all its multi-faceted glory! 33 tracks on 2CDs: "Do It Anyway You Wanna", "I Likes To Do It", "Cold Blooded & Down-Right-Funky", "Nursery Rhymes", "My Feet Won't Move, But My Shoes Did The Boogie", "Turn Me Loose", "Grunt", "Love Shop", "Asking For Trouble", "Don't Send Me Away", "A Mellow Mood", "You Ought TO Be Dancing", "If You Gonna Do It (Put Your Mind To It)" (Parts 1 & 2), "Boogie Down USA", "Soft And Tender", "A Great Truth", Tom Moulton mixes of "Opus-De-Funk" & "Do It Any Way You Wanna" and "Jam Jam Jam (All Night Long)" and more!

✨✧ Ron Henderson & Choice Of ColourGemini Lady ... CD
Grapevine/Soul Junction (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A 70s soul genius – even if you've never heard of the guy! Ron Henderson's a real enigma – a totally great soul artist who recorded throughout the 60s and 70s, but never really cracked the big time – thanks to the fact that his work was spread out over a number of different labels, and never given the push or full album release it deserved. His sound is one that rivals the best bigger names of the 70s mellow soul era – and Ron's got a wonderful talent for gently grooving rhythms and lovingly laidback tunes – in a style that reminds us a bit of Bobby Wilson, or of some of Leroy Hutson's first solo work, and which has a similar evolution as the 70s progress. This excellent CD finally gives Henderson his due – and presents a total of 20 tracks recorded during the early and mid 70s – all packaged with great sound and a full set of notes on Ron's life and music. Titles include "Gemini Lady", "I Feel I Have It In Me", "Your Love", "Problem Child", "The Other Side", "Hooked On Your Love", "Yours Is The Love I Want", "I'll Be Around", "Baby I Wanna Be Yours", "Sunshine", "Mary Green", "You're Twenty One Today", and "She Pleases Me".

Soul Jazz/Studio One (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Another essential batch of Studio One Soul, every bit as great as the first! 18 more astoundingly great Jamaican renditions of soul and R&B numbers from the hands of Coxsone Dodd and his extraordinary stable of artists, some deeply soulful, and others with a more rootsy, raw grain to them. All flavors of reggae get represented here, but never departing from the soul theme, with dee jay numbers and dark dubs rubbing up against straight up renditions of numbers that are unafraid to pledge their allegiance to the great originals! Tracks include "Swing Easy" by the Soul Vendors, "Choice Of Colours" by the Heptones, "People Make The World Go Round" by Hortense Ellis, "Choice Of Music (Part 2)" by Jackie Mittoo and the Brentford Disco Set, "Thinking" by Ken Boothe, "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by Tony Gregory, "Fool For Love" by Prince Jazzbo, "Fancy Pants" by Jackie Mittoo, and "Darker Block" by the Dub Specialist.

Mary J BligeMary Christmas ... CD
Verve, 2013. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
A sparkling Christmas set from Mary J Blige – one that takes full advantage of those wonderful vocals, and lets them loose on a whole host of Holiday tunes! The album's on Verve, and has a feel that's a lot more classic than some of Mary's other work – a vibe that's somewhere between contemporary R&B and the older vocal jazz you'd hear on Christmas favorites from years past – an approach that comes through strongly in Mary's choice of tunes. Most of the numbers are favorite standards from the Holiday season, given a special Blige twist – arranged by David Foster, and titles include "Little Drummer Boy", "My Favorite Things", "This Christmas", "The Christmas Song", "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer", "Do You Hear What I Hear", "The First Noel", and "Petit Papa Noel".

✨✧ Miles Davis with John Coltrane & Sonny StittIn Stockholm 1960 Complete (4CD set) ... CD
Dragon (Sweden), 1960. New Copy 4CD ... $35.99 51.98
The complete recordings of a legendary live cycle of shows in Stockholm from 1960 – material that was previously issued on two different 2LP sets during the album era, now brought together here with bonus tracks too! The first third of the set features incredible work from the team of Miles Davis and John Coltrane – working together in space that's very open, and far more exploratory than their studio work of the late 50s – maybe at a level that really shows the impact that Coltrane's growth was having on the solo approach of Davis! The key rhythm trio keeps things swinging – Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – which almost seems to allow the horn players even more freedom. The second two thirds of the set are equally striking, but in a very different way – as they feature the great Sonny Stitt, blowing both alto and tenor with Miles' group – a choice that's maybe a bit surprising, but equally wonderful too – a Stitt brings the sound maybe back to a bop core, but also seems to really get a chance to show off some of those modern currents that he had to soft-pedal on his albums for Roost. Titles with Coltrane include "So What", "On Green Dolphin Street", "All Blues/Theme", "Walkin/Theme", and "Fran Dance" – and titles with Stitt include "Autumn Leaves/Theme", "Walkin", "All Of You", "June Night", "Stardust", "Lover Man", "If I Were A Bell", "No Blues/Theme", "Softly As In A Mornin Sunrise", and "So What".

Roland HannaSir Elf (second cover) ... LP
Choice, 1973. Near Mint- ... $4.99
The first solo set from Roland Hanna – even though he had a long and varied career in dating back to the 50s – and a gem of a timeless solo piano jazz recorded from the early 70s. It's probably the best record to his name, with warmth to spare, a few recorded in a small recital hall at Nola Studios, and couple in the intimate confines of a home living room. Wonderful! Titles include "Yours Is My Heart Alone", "Night Of My Lights", "There Is No Greater Love" "Walkin", and "Morning". LP, Vinyl record album

Jazzmeia HornSocial Call ... CD
Prestige, 2017. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
The album's titled after a famous song by Betty Carter, and the sound of the set might well match her legacy too – as Jazzmeia Horn is clearly a singer we'll be hearing plenty from in years to come! Horn's got an incredible range – the first female jazz singer we've heard in years to really open up in the instrument-inspired style of the famous vocalists of years back – but she's also an artist who's not just copping old school jazz modes, as the presentation and choice of material is very strongly her own, and really blows us away! For everyone who's dug the music of top-shelf jazz singers like Betty Carter, Shirley Horn, and Dee Dee Bridgewater – Jazzmeia Horn may well be the next step forward. Players on the album include Victor Gould on piano, Ben Williams on bass, and Jerome Jennings on drums – and the set also features contributions from Josh Evans on trumpet, Frank Lacy on trombone, and Stacy Dillard on tenor. Titles include "Tight", "Up Above My Head", "Social Call", "People Make The World Go Round", "The Peacocks", "I Remember You", and "Afro Blue/Eye See You/Wade In The Water". CD

I RoyGussie Presenting I Roy (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
The classic full length debut of I Roy on record – although by this point, his reputation on the Kingston scene had already been set! Heavyweight producer Gussie Clarke decided to make a move into the Dee Jay realm in the early 70s and recruited microphone fiend I Roy to chat up some of his fiercest rhythms, then pimps the man out in a choice pink suit for the cover shoot, adding up to an irresistible package! When the album was released, I Roy was already a top DJ – part of a whole new hip-stepping generation who could bring a special sort of spin to the music – dropping wisdom and wit with an effortless sense of style – over rhythms that bubble along in a fantastic way – equally effortless in their laidback groove! Titles include "Red Gold & Green", "Pusher Man", "Black Man Time", "Smile Like An Angel", "Peace", "Coxsone Affair", "Screwface", "First Cut Is The Deepest", "Tripe Girl", and "Cow Town Skank".

Ben E KingDon't Play That Song ... LP
Atco, 1962. Good ... $19.99
A stellar record from Ben E King – and one of a few early 60s gems that really have him leaving a longstanding mark on soul music! There's a balance here that's unbelievable – a quality that's emotive right from the start, yet also perfectly put together too – with Ben's tremendous vocals backed by some tight Atlantic backings – in a style that's virtually the blueprint for lots more uptown soul singers to come in the 60s. The song choice is impeccable too – numbers from Doc Pomus, Mort Shuman, and Phil Spector which perfectly straddle the lines of soul music at the time – tunes that include classics like "Here Comes The Night", "Don't Play That Song", "Young Boy Blues", and "Stand By Me" – plus lesser-known gems like "Brace Yourself", "I Promise Love", "Yes", "First Taste Of Love", and "Show Me The Way".

Alton McClain & DestinyIt Must Be Love/More Of You ... CD
Polydor/Expansion (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy ... $14.99
A pair of overlooked female soul gems – back to back on a single CD! The first album is It Must Be Love – sweet late 70s modern soul from Alton McClain & Destiny – a great little female vocal trio with a sound that ranges from lightly funky with jazzy flourishes, to soaringly soulful! The group kind of follow in a tradition started by Honeycone and First Choice, and improved upon by The Emotions – and like that latter group, the girls move from the easier disco tracks that you'd normally expect, into a range of soulful styles that all come off equally well with their vocal technique. Webster Lewis handled some of the nice string arrangements – and players include Wah Wah Watson on guitar and Lee Ritenour on keys. titles include "Crazy Love", "Sweet Temptation", "Taking My Love For Granted", "My Empty Room", "Push & Pull", and "The Power Of Love". More Of You is one of the best records by this great little modern soul trio who should have gone onto bigger and better things. The session's got a strong mellow groove, typical of some of the non-hit soul coming out of labels like Polydor and Capitol at the end of the 70s – and tracks include "Stares & Whispers", "Love Waves", "More Of You", "99 1/2", "You Bring Me To My Morning Light", and "Thank Heaven For You".

✨✧ Smokey RobinsonEssar ... LP
Tamla, 1984. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Smokey's a little bit off course here – heading into a range of mellow pop soul styles that are clearly inspired by artists who were inspired by Smokey's own majestic solo turn in the 70s – but who never manage to match his quality. And since Smokey's taking inspiration from the uninspired, there's also a quality to this set that feels the weight of that choice. The vocals are fine enough, but perhaps a bit too overly emotive on the ballads – especially for smooth Smokey. The more upbeat numbers have a feel that's trying too hard for a crossover – and even the title (which is a play on Smokey's initials, "SR") is kind of a deal-breaker. Titles include "Train Of Thought", "I Can't Find", "Gone Forever", "Close Encounters of The First Kind", "Little Girl Little Girl", "Girl I'm Standing There", and "Driving Thru Life In The Fast Lane".

Jack SheldonLive At Don Mupo's Gold Nugget ... CD
VSOP, 1965. Used ... $9.99
A very unusual session by Jack Sheldon – but one that also really captures the Sheldon that was well known to the mainstream in the 60s, but hardly ever caught this way on record! Sheldon first came to fame as a straight jazz trumpeter on the LA scene of the mid 50s – but as the 60s wore on, Jack really started grooming himself as an overall entertainer – not just one who played trumpet, but who also sang and did a bit of comedy patter along with the tunes – a great choice, given that Sheldon had a nutty sense of humor that was one of his strongest calling cards in the jazz community. And while Sheldon was a frequent guest on TV shows of the 60s and 70s, where he'd work in this kind of mode, most of his albums never really captured that side of his talents. This excellent live set from 1965 really changes that fact – as it shows Sheldon working in all 3 modes wonderfully. The group is a quintet with Howard Roberts on guitar, Joe Mondragon on bass, and Stan Levey on drums – and Jack Marshall joins in on vocals on a few of the more complicated numbers with Jack – doing some great comedy schtick on parodies of "Girl From Ipanema", "What Kind Of Fool Am I", and "Goldfinger". Other tracks include the original vocal tunes "Jack's Blues", "Bodega Bay", and "Wait & See" – plus versions of "She's A Woman", "You Fascinate Me So", and "Steeplechase". CD

Silver ConventionSave Me ... LP
Midland, 1975. Very Good+ ... $2.99
A huge breakout moment for disco in the 70s – the first album from Silver Convention, a very early example of the European power on the club scene! The group's the brainchild of arranger Sylvester Levay and producer Michael Kunze – who come up with some great German disco rhythms for the record, mixed with soaring female trio vocals, by a group that includes two German gals and American soul singer Roberta Kelly! The vocal approach is similar to that 70s Philly group mode – popularized by First Choice, Three Degrees, and others – and pumped it up with the Munich sound of throbbing bass and heavy beats, which was arguably one of the first steps towards house music in the 80s. Titles include the huge hit "Fly Robin Fly", plus "Save Me", "I Like It", "Chains Of Love", "Tiger Baby", "Always Another Girl", and "Heart Of Stone". LP, Vinyl record album

SunWanna Make Love/Sun Power/Sunburn ... CD
Capitol/BGO (UK), 1976/1977/1978. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99
A trio of records from Sun – an excellent funk ensemble from the end of the 70s! First up is Wanna Make Love – one of the greatest records ever cut by Sun – a group whose records never made the charts as strongly as their contemporaries, but not for lack of quality! This set's a great batch of heavy ensemble funk with an edge that's not always heard on other Sun records – lots of razor-sharp guitars riffing away in saw-cut modes, striking hard at the grooves of the record, and chilling out nicely for the mellower cuts. The blend is wonderful – totally tight, and totally top-shelf all the way through – yet never in a commercial way at all. Titles include "Wanna Make Love", "My Woman", "Live On Dream On", "The Show Is Over", "Love Is Never Sure", and "They're Calling For Me". Sun Power is a solid smoker from Sun – the kind of tight funk set that made the group one of the greatest soul acts on Capitol Records during the late 70s! There's a wicked Ohio vibe going on throughout – everything focused together, and right on the money – even despite the large size of the ensemble – and touched with a slightly jazzy undercurrent that carries strong echoes of Earth Wind & Fire! Rhythms are nice and tight, with keyboards, guitar, and brassy horns over the top – and on the mellower cuts the vocals have a nicely compressed quality. Titles include "Conscience", "We're So Hot", "Organ Grinder", "She Lives Alone", "Time Is Passing", and "Light Me Up". Last up is Sunburn – a tightly crafted batch of dancefloor funk that reminds us of some of our favorite work from Fantasy Records at the time – especially some of the more righteous groups that blended equal parts jazz and soul! Sun's got a tightness here that's amazing – right up there with Earth Wind & Fire at their best, but not as commercial overall – and instead, always delivered with a nice sense of righteous energy! The set kicks off with the wicked "Sun Is Here", a guitar-driven groover with a very famous sample riff – and a sound that's somehow more stripped-down and jazz funk-driven than a lot of the group's other tunes. Other cuts are pretty great too, with lots of warm bubbly soulful moments – and titles include "Dance", "Long Drawn Out Thang", "I Had A Choice", "Sun Of A Gun", and "You're The One". CD

Philadelphia International, 1975. Very Good ... $4.99
Seminal work by Three Degrees – stepping proudly here from their girl group roots, into a dramatic pre-disco mode that's clearly influenced by similar Philly work by First Choice – some of the finest material ever! The music is by MFSB, with arrangements by Philly maestros like Bobby Martin and John Davis – and given that pedigree it's as wonderful as you'd imagine. Paired with the sweetly beautiful singing by the lovely voices of Three Degrees, this is some truly great Philadelphia International soul! Titles include "TSOP", "Loving Cup", "Get Your Love Back", "Long Lost Lover", "Take Good Care Of Yourself", "Another Heartache", and a nice cover of Marvin Gaye's "Distant Lover". This remastered CD version from Big Break UK has a number of bonus tracks: a Tom Moulton mix of "TSOP", Japanese single version of "When Will I See You Again", "Midnight Train", "Nigai Namida", "La Chanson Populaire" and "Somos Novios (It's Impossible)".

Larry DixonStar Time – Larry Dixon & Lad Productions Inc – Chicago 1971 to 1987 (4LP set) ... LP
Past Due, 1970s/1980s. Near Mint- 4LP ... $49.99
Two rare albums from Chicago soul singer Larry Dixon – plus an even more obscure array of rare singles and lost tapes from the same time too! The set begins with Larry's wonderful indie set I Am So In Love – originally issued on vinyl with a glued-on photocopy on the cover image! The album's a self-produced effort from Chicago soul singer Larry Dixon – and a great mix of sweeter soul and a few clubbier numbers – all of which sound surprisingly great, given the homemade look of the package! According to the label, the album was recorded live – most likely live in the studio, but with a freewheeling freshness that gets away from some of the cliches of this time – and which is really in keeping with the honest, personal approach Larry brings to the record. Titles include "What I Am", "Body", "Show Me", "Star Time", "Free Me", "Hey Girl", and "I'm So In Love". Next up is 1984's Can't Price Love – done with a bit more of an 80s soul vibe, but still villed with wonderfully sweet vocals from Larry! Dixon co-wrote some of the tunes and his guitarist Charles Parks takes credit for some of the others – and titles include one gospel song "Wait For Me" (both vocal and instrumental) , "Can't Price Love" (also vocal and instrumental version), "Doing What Comes Naturally", "Dance To The Beat", and "Make Up Your Mind". The second half of the collection is maybe even cooler than the first – a huge array of rare tracks done by Larry Dixon, from the early 70s through the mid 80s – really showing the evolution of both the indie soul sound of the time, and of the sort of artists who never fully got their time in the spotlight! Some tracks are by Dixon, others feature a different singer in the lead – and together, the work really illustrates the choices made by indie singers who were usually working a few years behind mainstream trends, but with a sharpness that really belies their lesser-star status. The music is already great on the rare funk or harmony singles at the start – but gets even more interesting as Larry and musicians cook up a sweet jazzy take on club – one that's almost more cosmic funk at times, with kind of a Cali-Tex vibe, than any sort of the disco on the east coast – especially given the placement of really strong musicians in the group. These 20 tracks are a huge revelation – and titles include "Next Time", "The Only One", "Don't It Make You Dance", "Love In Your Heart", "Feelings So Fine", and "Being With You" by Larry Dixon; "Space Caravan", "Groove It All Night", and "Love We Had (demo)" by Charles Parks III & The High Society Players; and "Ready For Your Touch", "That Kind Of Love", and "Ready For Your Touch (Jerome's dub)" by Chuck-A-Luck.

VariousLe Beat Bespoke Vol 7 – Tailor Made Cuts Compiled By Rob Bailey ... CD
Detour (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $15.99
A fantastic collection of funky mod and psych tracks from the great Rob Bailey – the man who's steered us through a handful of other wonderful compilations over the years, and won our undying respect in the process! Rob's choices are quite far from the obvious – and are made up from a selection of ultra-rare singles that maybe start in the grooviest freakbeat or garage modes of the mid 60s – but then quickly step out in more expansive styles, too – often with a full-on fuzzy guitar in the lead, and some really romping rhythms at the core. The whole thing's a mindblower right from the very first track – and titles include "No One Knows The Day" by Paragraph Music, "Face The New Day" by The Sound Track, "Polka Dotted Eyes" by The Snaps, "If I Didn't Love You Girl" by Travis Pike's Tea Party, "Situation Sad" by Finnigans Wake, "Won't You Say Yes To Me Girl" by Chuck Conlon, "Can't Tell You" by The Fabulous Depressions, "Norwegian Skies" by Bill Euker, "He Means So Much To Me" by Marilyn Mattson, and "Such A Good Thing" by The Showmen.
