Coolin SystemRefrigerate After Opening (with download) ... LP
GED Soul, 2014. New Copy ... $12.99
No need to refrigerate this great little set – as room temperature's only going to make the whole thing even funkier over time! The Coolin System are hotter than ever here – not only tighter on the instrumental tip than we remember, but also picking up some much deeper influences from the 60s – including a touch of trumpet inspiration from Blue Mitchell, killer keyboards from Cedar Walton, and a blast of Brazilian funk from Som Tres! These guys use all the best elements to rework a small combo funky sound way past the usual – and the all-instrumental set unfurls some sweet lines on Fender Rhodes, Hammond, trumpet, tenor, and flute – on cuts that include "Beyond Mobius", "Homenagem A Mongo", "Blue Juice", "Soul Village", "Funky Mule", "Soul Thing", and "Jungle Juice".

DeRobertGot The Goods ... CD
GED Soul, 2015. New Copy ... $6.99
A killer solo set from DeRobert – a cat you might know as the lead singer for the Half-Truths, but an artist who's maybe even greater here on his own! The style of the record is more blacksploitation soul than the straighter funk of DeRobert's other records – this cool, crispy sound on the rhythms that merges 70s inspiration with contemporary execution – an approach that gives the singer a lot more edge, and a lot more bite than before! The album's relatively short – only 6 full tracks, plus intro and outro numbers – but it may well deliver twice as much as any other DeRobert record that's come before. Titles include "Ask Of Me", "Let It Go", "Life Support", "Moody Tuesday", and "The More & More". CD
(Packaged in a slim sleeve.)

✨✧ AJ & The JiggawattsAJ & The Jiggawatts ... CD
GED Soul, 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first-ever full length we've ever heard from AJ & The Jiggawatts – and a record that really lives up to the promise of their work on funky 45! These guys are a deep funk combo, but one with a difference – energy that's a bit more raw and rough around the edges, in the best possible way – so that sometimes it feels like the vocals or instrumentation are ready to burst right out of the speakers! The lyrics often have this slight distortion that really reflects the feeling AJ puts into his expression – and the group more than keeps pace alongside, sometimes at a mighty fast clip. The whole thing's a great antidote to too-slick, too-polished funk records – and titles include "98 Degrees", "Pushin Forward", "Throw A Fit", "Get Wild", "Back Alley Beale Street", "Brown Bottle Fever", and "Typical Feeling".

✨✧ Magic In ThreesIV ... LP
GED Soul, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Magic In Threes is actually a quintet, and the album's numbered four – but don't let these digits confuse you, because the sound is nicely straight ahead – and a really fresh approach to instrumental funk! These guys have a laidback groove that almost reminds us of 70s soundtrack modes, but never tries at all to copy their style – and instead finds a unique space that's very different from so many of the other funky combos working today, and which hardly belies the Tennessee roots of the group! The music has this great sense of space between the rhythms – things are never too fast or too forced, but always funky throughout – served up with a shifting array of instrumentation that includes Fender Rhodes, organ, and other keyboards – plus guitar, flute, sax, and trumpet. Titles include "Vida Lago", "Sunshine", "Up In The Market", "Cinema Six Eight", "Cashin Out", "Beautiful Starship", "For The Champ", "60s Spring", and "Ringworld". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousOut Of Left Field – Where Soul Meets Country ... CD
Kent/Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $14.99
Not a set of country-styled soul music – as you might guess from the title – and instead a package that shows the undeniable influence that soul music songs had on the sound of country music in the 60s and 70s! The flipside of the scene has been well-documented on collections of western-tinged soul music we've stocked in the past – but this great set is the first we've ever heard to show the way that country singers were able to easily pick up hit soul songs of the time, then recraft them completely with a whole new sort of style! The blue-tinged message of these tunes is universal – and has equally great power in the hands of these artists you might not identify with the tracks, but who really get their vibe, and go out of their way to rework the lyrics with different arrangements that help bring the music to a whole new audience. Titles include "Who's Making Love" by Daaron Lee, "He Made A Woman Out Of Me" by Jeanne C Riley, "Baby I'm Yours" by Tanya Tucker, "Only The Strong Survive" by Skeeter Davis, "I've Been Loving You Too Long" by Anita Carter, "You Don't Miss Your Water" by OB McClinton, "He Will Break Your Heart" by David Allen Coe, "Look At Them Beans" by Johnny Cash, "Pickin Wild Mountain Berries" by Loretta Lynn & Conway Twitty, "Dark End Of The Street" by The Kendalls, and "Scratch My Back" by Razzy Bailey.

✨✧ Aged In HarmonyYou're A Melody (3 X 7" set – plus magazine) ... 7-inch
Melodies International (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 3x7 inch ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic package of rare soul from the Detroit scene of the 70s – all of the extremely rare singles by Aged In Soul, brought together in an excellent triple 45 collection! The music here has a very spare, indie sort of clubby vibe – a bit like the groove over at P&P Records, but maybe a bit less disco overall – although definitely trying for the dancefloor in the mix of riffing guitar and rhythms! Vocals are often sung by more than one singer – which gives the record a bit of a righteous vibe, and this deeper spirit that really fits the compelling songs – which are all written, arranged, and produced by Arnold Moore, who put the music together. Titles include the original and disco mix of the group's classic "You're A Melody" – plus "I Feel Like Dancing", "Theme For Someone Special", "Dance Awhile", and "Trust In Me". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Cornelius Brothers & Sister RoseCornelius Brothers & Sister Rose ... LP
United Artists, 1972. Very Good- ... $1.99
A wonderful album from this enigmatic soul group! Cornelius Brothers & Sister Rose were one of a handful of early 70s groups – like Chairmen Of The Board or 100 Proof Aged In Soul – who had a sound that was incredibly hard to peg. There were bits of southern rawness in the vocals, but the overall approach also had plenty of elements of smoother Northern Soul, and wasn't afraid to use strings or uptown arrangements when they were needed. This album's their best, and features 10 tracks written by Eddie Cornelius, plus a great little cover of Al Green's "Let's Stay Together". Tracks include the sublime easy soul number "Too Late To Turn Back Now", choppy odd groover "Treat Her Like A Lady", and the cuts "Gonna Be Sweet For You", "Let Me Down Easy", and "Lift Your Love Higher".

8th Day8th Day (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
The first album by 8th Day – a record with a bit of a complicated pedigree, but a massive amount of 70s Detroit soul as well! The set was supposedly compiled to cash in on the group's hit single "She's Not Just Another Woman" – reportedly recorded by 100 Proof Aged In Soul, but issued under the name 8th Day, so that it wouldn't compete with the group's other hits on the charts! But after that cut took off, Holland-Dozier-Holland needed a group to back it up, so they assembled some lesser-known, but strong, Detroit soul talents to record this album. Unlike the group's second album, which is a much funkier affair overall, this one sounds a lot like 100 Proof – with a raspy southern-tinged soul approach, filtered through some tighter, more full-on HDH arrangements that really give the whole thing a great sort of punch! A great album if you dig the Invictus/Hot Wax soul sound – and titles include "I'm Worried", "Enny Meeny Miny Mo", "You've Got To Crawl Before You Walk", "Just As Long", and "She's Not Just Another Woman". Features the bonus tracks "She's Not Just Another Woman (single)", "Eeny Meeny Miny Mo (inst)", "If I Could See The Light In The Window", and "If I Could See The Light In The Window (inst)". CD

Johnny HammondHigher Ground ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
Massive work from Johnny Hammond – stretching out here in some totally jamming grooves that really transform his style for the 70s! The sound here is a lot hipper and tighter than some of Hammond's more rough-edged soul jazz of the 60s – a groove that's a great precursor to his more famous meetings with Larry Mizell a few years later – and equally great! Johnny's got plenty of space here – and is really taking his time with the grooves, thanks to some open ended arrangements by Bob James, who also plays electric piano on the record! The record is a seminal piece of work in the transformation of the chunky 60s organ sound to a sweeter 70s keyboard groove – and was proof that Johnny, more than most of his 60s soul jazz contemporaries, was ready to embrace the new sounds of the decade with open arms. Includes the great sample cut "Big Sur Suite" – plus "Higher Ground", "Summertime/The Ghetto", and "Catch My Soul". CD

Joe HintonFunny (How Time Slips Away) ... LP
Back Beat, Early 60s. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
The only full album ever cut by Joe Hinton – a fantastic singer with a style that bridged soul and R&B, in the mode of Bobby Blue Bland, who was one of Joe's contemporaries on the Texas recording scene. Joe's voice is incredible – deep, but with a quality that has it break at the emotional moments, really invested in the material, opening up tunes that should be sleepy with a heck of a lot of soul! Titles include "Funny", "If You Love Me", "So Close", "Endlessly", "True Love", "Everything", "Guess Who", and "A Thousand Cups Of Happiness". LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1966. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Always exciting work from the Wicked Pickett – a set that's filled with sharp-edged soul tracks throughout – and which perfectly shows why Wilson was a key link between funk and soul back in the 60s! The album was recorded at the two great hubs of southern soul production in the 60s – Memphis and Muscle Shoals – and the tracks includes some key Pickett reworkings of other hits into his own classics, plus a few more penned for the album that are equally as great! Titles include "In The Midnight Hour", "Land Of 1000 Dances", "Something You Got", "Mercy Mercy", "Danger Zone", "It's All Over", "99 & 1/2 Won't Do", and "634-5789". LP, Vinyl record album

Leroy SmartDread Hot In Africa/Propaganda ... CD
Burning Sounds (UK), 1977/1978. New Copy ... $16.99
A pair of classics from Leroy Smart – back to back on a single CD! Dread Hot In Africa is an early album from one of the more powerful vocalists to emerge from the 70s roots reggae scene – and one with an influence that was equally felt in Jamaica and in the UK! The record's got an easygoing groove, but bites with vocal power that's both personal and political – that blend of the individual and larger ideals that was so important during the roots generation, served up here by Smart with an edge that's different than some of the bigger names of the Island Records scene. Titles include "Jah Jah Forgive Them", "Beautiful Rainbow", "Africa", "Babylon Wicked", "African Woman", "Mister Smart", "No Love", "Give Jah Praises", and "Love In My Heart". Propaganda has a sharp-edged, soulful vibe throughout – thanks to backings from a set of UK players who helped Leroy out during the London sessions for the album – including Dennis Bovell and Lloyd Donaldson! There's a sweetly soulful current to the music, with some guitar lines that are especially nice – and which slyly bring in some bluesier elements to the bottom of the groove – while Leroy himself keeps things righteous and proud, on titles that include "No Check Babylon God", "Mother Liza", "Don't Trust Them", "Learn The Good", "Shower", "Baby Why", "Propaganda", and "Stick Together".

VariousSoldier's Sad Story – Vietnam Through The Eyes Of Black America 1966 to 1973 ... CD
Kent/Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A really great little set – with a very unique take on soul music! As the title indicates, the package documents the African-American response to the Vietnam War that emerged in soul singles during the late 60s and early 70s. The feel here is quite different than the raw, ragged protest of American rock at the time – and has a more helpless, disenfranchised feel that really gets at the true spirit of what most of America was going through in dealing with the war. The range of material is really great – and includes soul from the south, Chicago, LA, New York, and Philly – with a number of tunes that you may know, but have never identified strongly as anti-war, plus other great ones that you've most likely not heard! Titles include "While I'm Away" by Eddy G Giles, "POW MIA" by The Whispers, "Mail Call Time" by Mel & Tim, "Let's Face Facts" by James Carr, "Going To Viet Nam" by Big Amos, "Lonely Soldier" by Mike Williams, "He'll Be Back" by The Players, "Greetings" by The Monitors, "Christmas In Vietnam" by Johnny & Jon, "There's Someone Waiting Back Home" by The O'Jays, and "I Can't Write Left Handed" by Bill Withers.

VariousSoul Of Money Records ... CD
Money/Kent (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
An amazing collection of obscure 45 material and rare album tracks from the archives of the legendary Money/Cash labels! Money Records was a huge beacon for somewhat rough-edged driving soul, when it found its niche on the LA scene in the early 60s. Amazing artists that never fully got their due – stars like Bettye Swann, the Larks (aka Pretenders), the Question Marks, King Solomon, Sonny Herman, and tons of others – many with roots in late 50s doo wop and r&b, recorded endearingly rawer singles for the label in the 60s, and stayed as it progressed into more of a smooth, slightly more polished and groovy sound in the early 70s. 24 tracks – most of which are pretty darn hard to track down on vinyl! Includes "Too Much For You" by Bobby Angelle, "What About Me" by Sonny Herman, "Temptation Walk" by the Larks, "Separation" by King Solomon, "You Gave Me Love" by Bettye Swann, "Baby" by Ted "Soul" Hawkins, "Lil' Valley" by M&M and the Peanuts, "Dancing With My Baby" by the T-K-O's, and tons more. Includes an excellent booklet with great photos, bios, and notes on the production and arrangements! CD

Billy ButlerRight Tracks – The Complete Okeh Recordings 1963 to 1966 ... CD
Okeh/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The complete Okeh label recordings of Billy Butler – Jerry Butler's lesser-known brother, but an even more grooving artist on the Chicago soul scene of the 60s! Billy's work at Okeh is easily some of the best of the all-great imprint – tracks that step, slide, and groove along in a flurry of tight-edged Chi-soul rhythms – nearly all of which are produced by the legendary Carl Davis, with arrangements from Johnny Pate and Riley Hampton! Billy's in the lead on vocals, but nearly all numbers have a strong harmony soul component too – support from The Four Enchanters or Chanters – in a mode that echoes The Impressions' style of the time somewhat, but which also carries more of the Butler-family emotive quality, thanks to the stronger lead. This is the first time all this material has ever been brought together so well – and the package features great notes and a number of previously unissued titles as well – including some rare versions and instrumentals that are sure to get some play from Northern Soul listeners. Titles include "Found True Love", "Lady Love", "Gotta Get Away", "Can't Live Without Her", "Right Track", "Boston Monkey", "Does It Matter", "Fighting A Losing Battle", "To Be Or Not To Be", "Singing The Blues", and "You're Gonna Be Sorry".

Gene & EddieTrue Enough – Gene & Eddie With Sir Joe At Ru-Jac ... CD
Ru-Jac/Omnivore, Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
Rare Baltimore soul from the duo of Gene & Eddie – and a collection that's equally noteworthy for its early contributions from the mighty Sir Joe Quarterman, who'd later become a funk legend in the 70s! The style is rough-edged duo soul – kind of an east coast variant of the modes of Sam & Dave, and one that's both well-suited to romping groovers, and some deeper-tinged numbers that are especially nice – moody tracks that have some righteous undercurrents that definitely fall on the hipper side of the indie soul world of the time. Quarterman contributed a number of songs and arrangements to the pair – and the set also features some of his own solo work, too – all material that came from the studios of the Ru-Jac label in the 60s. Titles include "I Would Cry", "I Tell You", "You Don't Fool Me", "It's So Hard", "Sweet Little Girl", "Let Me Go Easy", "It's No Sin", "Darling I Love You", "Why You Hurt Me", and "She's True Enough" by Gene & Eddie – plus "Every Day", "Baby I'd Drop Everything", "Nobody Beats My Love", and "If You Give Up Your Love" by Sir Joe.

Savoy/Sony (Japan), 1952/1954. Used ... $5.99
A classic 50s album on Savoy – a set that's almost as memorable for its cartoony cover as it is for the great Art Pepper material on the record! Pepper's tone here is wonderful – that sharper-edged, more soulful approach that you often get in his smaller label 50s work – a nice contrast to some of the smoother sides of Art, and the part of his sound we really love. The album's got three different west coast groups working with Pepper – with players who include Russ Freeman or Hampton Hawes on piano, Jack Montrose on tenor, Joe Mondragon or Monte Budwig on bass, and Larry Bunker or Bobby White on drums. But Art's the main star of the set – blowing beautifully throughout, with both jaw-dropping precision and a tremendous sense of sound! Titles include "Tickle Toe", "Chili Pepper", "Susie The Poodle", "Brown Gold", "Holiday Flight", "Surf Ride", "Straight Life", "Cinnamon", and "Thyme Time". CD

Piano SlimLook At Grandma Watusi – Unreleased Masters Collection 1959 to 1962 ... CD
Cicadelic, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99
Raw soul from the second Piano Slim – Willard Burton of Houston, who's heard here on some killer tracks from the start of the 60s! Slim's definitely got some blues in the way he approaches the piano, but the productions here are more soul-based and R&B-styled overall – often in ways that make use of his piano and vocals with the kind of hard-edged, socking soul modes you'd be more likely to hear from the New Orleans scene of the time – although Slim's also got plenty of Texas grit in his grooves! Some numbers are instrumentals, many have vocals – and the collection brings together early singles and a number of unreleased tracks – with titles that include "Spinning Top (parts 1 & 2)", "Sadie Hawkins Day", "Do It Now", "Look At Grandma Watusi", "Lot Of Shakin Lot Of Jivin", "Key Jammer", "Ennis Lee", and "Mister Twister".

A bit smoother than early days, but still very nice and soulful – and did we expect any less from Stevie? The record's got a nicely flanged-out soul groove – with a style that kind of expands on the vocal and keyboard production of the early 70s, taking the groove towards a sound that many other bands would cop in the 80s. Proof of this is the cut "Master Blaster (Jammin)", which many bands would cover at the time – plus lots of nice LP cuts, like "Did I Hear You Say You Love Me", "Cash In Your Face", "All I Do", and "I Ain't Gonna Stand For It".

A great session that was recorded by Freddie Hubbard in the 60s, but not issued by Blue Note until the mid 70s – and only then as part of a short-lived double length set! This version is the first real issue of the material – with the original cover art intended for the session in the 60s – and as such, it's presented in a way that helps it stand strongly with Freddie's best early albums for Blue Note! The sound here is sharp-edged and soulful – a reflection of the groove that Freddie was hitting in the Jazz Messengers of the early 60s, played by a group that features three members of that ensemble – Wayne Shorter on tenor, Cedar Walton on piano, and Reggie Workman on bass – along with Philly Joe Jones on drums! Tracks are hard, straight, and soulful – not bogged down in some of Hubbard's misdirected modernism – and titles include "Philly Mignon", "Father & Son", "Nostrand & Fulton", and "Assunta". CD
