✨✧ AJ & The JiggawattsAJ & The Jiggawatts (with bonus download) ... LP
GED Soul, 2014. New Copy ... 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".

✨✧ 100 Proof Aged In Soul100 Proof Aged In Soul ... LP
Hot Wax, 1972. Very Good ... $19.99
A stone burner from 100 Proof Aged In Soul – a group who really take off with this tight second record! The album's a classic from the days when soul music ruled AM radio on both sides of the tracks – and the rest of the album is equally great – packing that tight post-Motown punch that made the Hot Wax label one of the best proponents of Detroit soul in the 70s! Arrangements are by a huge amount of early 70s heavyweights – McKinley Jackson, Paul Riser, and HB Barnum – and the set was produced by General Johnson and Greg Perry, in a style that soars along with the Chairmen Of The Board albums of the time. Titles include "Words", "I Don't Care If I Never Get Over You", "Everything Good Is Bad", "Ghetto Girl", "Nothing Sweeter Than Love", and "Don't You Wake Me". LP, Vinyl record album

100 Proof Aged In SoulSomebody's Been Sleeping In My Bed ... LP
Hot Wax, 1970. Very Good- ... $11.99
One of the best-remembered groups from the Detroit scene of the early 70s – thanks to the massive title track on this album, and a whole host of other wonderful cuts as well! The group features the great Steve Marcus on vocals – an artist who'd cut some key Northern soul singles for smaller labels in the 60s – but who really bursts out of the box here with great presentation from the Holland Dozier Holland empire! The record features some great songs by General Johnson and Greg Perry – and Perry also handled some of the production work for the record – really pushing the group with the sort of full, rich sound the Chairmen Of The Board brought to their own work. Titles include "Somebody's Been Sleeping", "Too Many Cooks (Spoil The Soup)", "One Man's Leftovers", "Love is Sweeter", "Age Ain't Nothin' But a Number", and "Back Track". LP, Vinyl record album

8th Day8th Day ... LP
Invictus, 1971. Very Good ... $29.99
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".

✨✧ Wilson PickettHey Jude (180 gram green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/4 Men With Beards, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... About June 5, 2018
Wilson Pickett at Fame Studios – an unbeatable mix that yields up one of his greatest albums ever! All the best elements of Pickett's strength at Atlantic Records are firmly in place here – hard, raw vocals at the front, supported by funky accompaniment from Fame Studios regulars, plus a bit of vocals from The Sweet Inspirations – all tied together by near-perfect production from the legendary Rick Hall! But best of all, the tracks here are all winners through and through – mostly penned by the cream of the crop of southern-tinged soulsters of the time – including George Jackson, Bobby Womack, Raymond Moore, and the team of Isaac Hayes & David Porter. Of course, Lennon & McCartney contributed the title track "Hey Jude" – which Wilson redoes here with the same soulful inflection that Ike & Tina were bringing to some of the 60s rock cannon at the end of the decade – and other titles include "Save Me", "My Own Style Of Loving", "Toe Hold", "People Make The World", "A Man & A Half", and "Sit Down & Talk This Over".

✨✧ Wilson PickettExciting Wilson Pickett ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Martha High with Osaka MonaurailTribute To My Soul Sisters (with bonus track) ... CD
Record Kicks (Italy), 2017. New Copy ... $15.99
A hard-smoking set of female funk – with backing from the mighty Osaka Monaurail combo! Years ago, Martha High was something of a "lost" female soul figure – an artist who worked with James Brown in the 60s, recorded a bit of disco in the 70s, but never fully got her due. Yet in recent years, she's re-emerged with a bold new sound – maybe even funkier than back in the day, and working with some very cool contemporary combos – at a level that's maybe made her second just to Sharon Jones for hard-edged funky soul music! This time around, High returns to working with Japan's Osaka Monaurail – maybe one of our favorite funky groups of recent years, and an ensemble who are very committed to the sound of the James Brown band in the late 60s – which is a perfect fit for the songs that High's using here – which were originally recorded by Lyn Collins, Marva Whitney, Vicki Anderson, and Yvonne Fair. The whole thing's mighty smoking – and titles include "Unwind Yourself", "Mama's Got A Bag Of Her Own", "Mama Feelgood", "Answer To Mother Popcorn", "Put It On The Line", "Things Got To Get Better", "Think", and "A Little Tasted Of Soul". CD features the bonus track "Oh What A Feeling". CD

James BrownBody Heat – Live At Studio 54 ... LP
Phoenix10, 1982. Good+ ... $4.99
A lot less disco than you'd guess from the setting – still very much in that fast-funk mode that James was using at the end of the 70s – a style that was his answer to club music, but which was still largely forged out of a soulful funk-based groove! Titles include "Sex Machine", "Body Heat", a 14 minute take on "This Is A Man's World", and the short "Bay Ridge Boogy", an instrumental by the Bay Ridge Band. LP, Vinyl record album

Gene & EddieTrue Enough – Gene & Eddie With Sir Joe At Ru-Jac (blue vinyl pressing – with download) ... LP
Ru-Jac/Omnivore, Late 60s. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
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.

Art PepperSurf Ride ... CD
Savoy/Sony (Japan), 1952/1954. New Copy ... $18.99
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

✨✧ Gil Scott-HeronReflections ... LP
Arista, 1981. Very Good- ... $7.99
A great little album that's often overshadowed by its hit – the 15 minute "B-Movie", which was sort of an overly-wrought protest piece about how the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 was going to turn America into a bad b-movie. Not that that track's bad – although its politics have certainly dated by now – but the real strength of the album are the jazzy numbers, written in Gil's beautiful righteous style forged in the soul jazz underground of the 70s. These include the stellar "Is That Jazz?", a contemplative track about the future of the art form, a mellow version of Bill Withers' "Grandma's Hands", the moody "Storm Music", and "Gun", a good groover with a message about the right to bear arms.

Tamla, 1980. Very Good Gatefold ... $6.99
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".

DelfonicsSound Of Sexy Soul ... LP
Philly Groove, 1969. Very Good+ ... $49.99
A groundbreaking album of vocal group soul – right from the first note! The record kicks off with the sublime "Ready Or Not, Here I Come" – which starts with fierce stepping strings that are actually funky, then soars into some of the best harmonies the group ever put to record, superbly arranged by the great Thom Bell, who also wrote the track. As the album progresses, the sound expands further to encompass many elements that would become the blueprint for vocal groups over the next few years – like twangy electric sitar, cascading orchestrations, and pinched lead vocals that take a lot more chances than most group singers had been taking for years! There's still a bit of a 60s soul sound to some of the cuts, but the album's a watershed – not only for Thom Bell and the group, but for harmony soul as well! Titles include "Ready Or Not Here I Come", "My New Love", "Loving Him", "With These Hands", "Somebody Loves You", and "Everytime I See My Baby". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the greatest R&B vocal groups of the 50s, featuring singer Lowman Pauling, who was a huge influence on James Brown! The tracks all have a great hard-edged sound, with little of the schmaltz that can sometimes date these songs a bit too much. The material is very rootsy soul stuff – tracks include "Right Around The Corner", "You Didn't Learn It At Home", "Devil With The Rest", "Come On & Save Me", "The Slummer The Slum", and "I Could Love You If You Let Me".

✨✧ Willie HutchSoul Portrait/Season For Love (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Expansion (UK), 1969/1970. New Copy ... $15.99
A pair of overlooked albums from the great Willie Hutch – back to back on a single CD! First up is Soul Portrait – pre-Motown work from Willie Hutch – but a great little record that really points the way towards Willie's famous sides to come in the 70s! Hutch here already sounds pretty darn great – singing with a raspy tone that reminds us a bit of Curtis Mayfield – especially given that Willie uses the same sort of righteous undercurrent as Curtis – not yet as over the top political, but brewing under nicely with a really marked sense of power! The backings are great too – all arranged by Hutch himself, and already showing some of the hipper styles that he'd bring into play in his later blacksploitation work. One of the deepest soul albums on RCA at the time – with a righteous vibe that's totally great – and filled with wonderful original tunes that include "Lucky To Be Loved By You", "Ain't Gonna Stop", "You Gotta Try", "Let Me Give You The Love You Need", "Do What You Wanna Do", and "Good To The Last Drop". Season For Love is early work from the great Willie Hutch – a set that's different than his more famous Motown music of the 70s, but which already shows a nicely ambitious approach! Willie's a warmer, sweeter-voiced singer here – working through some great original tunes of his own, plus a few well-chosen classics – all in a mix of soul and strings that definitely grooves, but which could also have gotten Hutch some bigger exposure in the larger music world as well. A few numbers are almost more in a jazz vocal territory – or at least in territory of artists like Lou Rawls or Arthur Prysock – while others have the righteous energy of Willie's later sound too. The arrangements are by Rene Hall and Perry Botkin Jr – and titles include "Season for Love", "The Shortest Distance", and "Trying To Understand A Woman", plus covers like "Hurt So Bad" and "Twelfth of Never". CD also features a bonus track – "When A Boy Falls In Love (parts 1 & 2) (45 version)". CD

ImpressionsCheck Out Your Mind/Times Have Changed ... CD
Curtom/Love Vinyl (UK), 1970/1972. New Copy ... $14.99
A pair of Impressions killers – back to back on a single CD! Check Out Your Mind is righteous late 60s soul from The Impressions – the group's last album with Curtis Mayfield in the lineup! The sound here follows heavily from the Young Mods and This Is My Country years – a heavier take on the trio's soul stylings than their work over at ABC in the mid 60s – pushed into more heady political territory, yet still informed with an unmatched approach to harmony soul. Arrangements are by Riley Hampton and Gary Slabo, and they've got some great psychedelic soul touches that are a perfect precursor to Curtis Mayfield's solo work to follow on Curtom – a great groove that steps out wonderfully with an undercurrent of funk in the mix. Henry Gibson plays some great congas on the set – again hinting at the Mayfield sound to come – and titles include "Check Out Your Mind", "Madam Mary", "We Must Be In Love", "Only You", "Say You Love Me", "Turn On To Me", "Do You Wanna Win", and "You're Really Something Sadie". Times Have Changed is a post-Curtis Mayfield album by The Impressions – but one that crackles with the raw righteousness of Curtis' first few solo albums on Curtom! Mayfield's place here is held by the amazing Leroy Hutson – one of our favorite soul talents of the 70s, really sparkling here in the trio before moving onto his own run of classics for Curtom – with a vocal quality that's solidly soulful, and possibly even more progressively pointed than Curtis. Hutson helped co-arrange the album with Riley Hampton – and production is by Curtis Mayfield, who brings in all the right elements of fuzz and funk to really keep the group sounding hip. Titles include the classic peace song "Stop the War", plus "I Need To Belong To Someone", "Love Me", "Our Love Goes On & On", "This Love's for Real", and a cool cover of "Inner City Blues". CD

Pony Canyon (Japan), 2004. New Copy ... $15.99
Junior Mance works in a great trio here – one that really helps capture the deeper side of his talents on the piano – thanks to strong contributions from Paul West on bass and Idris Muhammad on drums! There's a fair bit of blues-tinged tunes in the mix, but the set also includes some wider-ranging jazz numbers as well – really showing off that round, full tone that's always made Mance so great – captured here beautifully by the open, yet understated production of this Japanese label session – at a level that Junior maybe wouldn't have had on an American date. Titles include Mance's own "Jubilation", plus "Soul Eyes", "Lester Leaps In", "Solitude", "Funky Carnival", "Stormy Monday", "Jitterbug Waltz", and "God Bless The Child". CD

Idris MuhammadPower Of Soul (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Kudu/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99
An incredible record from funky drummer Idris Muhammad! Idris is probably known for his funky break work on Blue Note and Prestige records sessions of the late 60s and early 70s – but by the time of this 1974 album, he was really expanding his style, hitting a laidback groove that went way beyond the simple drum break, into a world of complicated fills and riffs that forever changed the face of funk. The best example of this is the album's standout groove – the massive cut "Loran's Dance", which has a mellow jazzy vibe that you'll recognize from its popular use as a sample cut over the years (by the Beastie Boys, DJ Shadow, and others.) All cuts are long and mellow, and other titles include "Power Of Soul", "Saddest Thing" and "Piece of Mind". LP, Vinyl record album
