✨✧ GQGQ Two ... LP
Arista, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Completely sublime grooves from GQ – a second set that's almost even better than their first – thanks to perfect production, and wicked rhythms that are right on the money, track after track! The group start the set with a flurry of upbeat grooves that really show the full potential of ensemble funk at the end of the 70s – tight cuts that steer far from any disco or dancefloor cliches, and which have a bass-heavy sound that's completely infectious! Then, they flip things over with an equally great batch of ballads – mellow cuts that show that the group can handled the slower side of the tempo scale too – a perfect balance that really earns them the class you'd guess from a name like GQ. The set features a killer remake of Billy Stewart's "Sitting In The Park", plus the cuts "Standing Ovation", "Is It Cool", "Someday In Your Life", "Lies", "GQ Down", "Don't Stop This Feeling", and "Reason For The Season".

Billy StewartOne More Time – The Best Of Billy Stewart ... CD
Chess/MCA, Mid 60s. Used ... $4.99
Billy Stewart was one of the greatest soul singers ever to record for Chess (even though he wasn't from Chicago), and although his work for the label stretched from the early to the late 60's, he's not nearly as well-remembered as he should be. This set aims to correct that, and features 20 great tracks of some of the most unusual soul you'll ever hear. You may already know Billy's voice from his amazing crossover version of "Summertime" (which still shows up on oldies stations), but that's only the beginning of the way this stuff grooves, as the arrangements are fantastic, and have a tight punch and loping groove that will knock you off your feet. Tracks include the classic "Sitting In the Park" (later covered by GQ), "Cross My Heart", "Secret Love", "Tell Me The Truth", "Strange Feeling", "Fat Boy", and the nice version of "Every Day I Have the Blues", which begins with some tight funky drums. Great stuff throughout, and one of the truly unique voices in soul music! CD

✨✧ VariousSouthport Weekender Classics Vol 1 ... CD
Endulge (UK), 1970s/1980s/1990s. Used 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
A set that's overflowing with classic clubby tunes – a selection of soulful numbers from many years back, most of which have played big on the UK's Southport Weekender over the past two decades! The bulk of the tracks here are from the 70s, but there's also some later numbers that take classic club for inspiration – and if we had to define a dominant groove here, we might say modern soul more than disco – because most of the rhythms here are midtempo, and the whole thing moves along at a warmly relaxed pace! Titles include "Sweet Power Your Embrace" by James Mason, "Top Of The Stairs" by Collins & Collins, "Was That All It Was" by Jean Carn, "Risin To The Top" by Keni Burke, "I Want You For Myself" by George Duke, "Make My Dream A Reality" by GQ, "Optimistic" by Sounds Of Blackness, "To Be In Love" by Masters At Work with India, "A Love Supreme" by Will Downing, "Days Like This (Spinna & Ticklah club mix)" by Shaun Escoffery, "Real Love" by Driza Bone, "Keep On Movin" by Soul II Soul, "Hangin On A String" by Loose Ends, "Let The Music Use You" by Nightwriters, and "Too Much Lovemakin" by Gloria Scott.

✨✧ VariousLove Vibes – 18 Feel Good Factor Upbeat 70s & 80s Soul Gems ... CD
Expansion (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wicked little collection that really lives up to its name – a set that's filled with warmth and good energy throughout – not to mention a great array of overlooked soul tracks too! Most of the numbers here are lesser-known gems from the late 70s and early 80s – upbeat, but not in a disco way – and usually somewhere in a space between modern soul and boogie, which works perfectly for the positive vibes of the tunes! There's a soaring feel that definitely takes off from an Earth Wind & Fire sort of style – and although most of the artists here are familiar, you'll really be surprised at the tracks chosen for the set. Titles include "Love Vibes" by The Emotions, "Something On Your Mind" by Melba Moore, "Razzle Dazzle" by Heatwave, "Better Things" by Sylvia St James, "Riding" by Michael Henderson, "Can You See Where I'm Coming From" by Instant Funk, "All In The Way You Get Down" by Ray Parker Jr & Raydio, "Sweet Fire" by Mighty Fire, "Here I Am" by Dynasty, "No One" by Flakes, "Love Is Such A Crazy Thing" by The Spinners, "Wonderful" by GQ, and "When I'm Dancin" by Lenny Williams.

✨✧ Dedication OrchestraSpirits Rejoice ... CD
Ogun (UK), 1992. Used ... Out Of Stock
An incredibly powerful British jazz supergroup – very much in the spirit of the larger ensembles of the 70s UK scene, but with a sense of poise and maturity that marks the album as an extremely different work! The lineup on this one is enough to recommend the set – as players include Lol Coxhill, Elton Dean, Evan Parker, Alan Skidmore, Kenny Wheeler, Phil Minton, Harry Beckett, Django Bates, Louis Moholo, and at least a dozen additional figures important to British jazz in the 70s and 80s – but the amazing thing about the record is the way in which so many egos can come together in one musical vision, sharing the best parts of their talents without clashing in the studio. The set features a variety of originals by Dudu Pukwana, Harry Miller, Louis Moholo, and Mongezi Feza – and titles include "B My Dear", "Dancing Damon", "Ithi Gqi", "Traumatic Experience", "Sonia", "Manje", and "Woza".
