GQFace To Face (with bonus track) ... CD
Arista/FTG, 1981. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Wonderfully solid grooving from GQ – an album issued a few years after their bigger hits, but it's still plenty great and just as worthy! The trio have a wonderful way of laying out a sweet harmony without getting too cloying, nor too poppy – and the best cuts here glide along beautifully in a mellow or midtempo mode! There's a tightness here that reminds us of Tavares or The Main Ingredient at their best – but a bit more modern soul overall, and often with a very slight nod towards the growing 80s groove mode. Titles include "Face To Face", "I Love (The Skin You're In)", "Sad Girl", "Shy Baby", "Shake", "You've Got The Floor", "Dark Side Of The Sun", and "Boogie Shoogie Feelin". This edition from Funky Town Grooves includes the bonus track "Try Smurfin'". CD

Billy StewartOne More Time – The Best Of Billy Stewart ... CD
Chess/MCA, Mid 60s. Used ... $7.99
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

✨✧ Hal RubensteinGentry Man – A Guide For The Civilized Male – The Best Of Gentry Magazine 1951 to 1957 ... Book
HarperCollins, 2012. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great guide to male culture, circa 1955 – served up in images and articles from Gentry – which was a postwar magazine in the realm of GQ and Esquire! The book is beautifully done, with full page reproductions of the best features from the magazine's 22 issues – all done with a great sense of design, cool typography, and loads and loads of very cool images! Unlike other books on men's magazines, which usually tell the story and show pictures, but never offer up the whole thing – this volume really gets at the heart of Gentry, with over 250 pages that are a lot more striking and fun to read than some fragile, yellowing old issues. Loads of great articles on cars and men's fashion – plus more on eating, drinking, and even gambling! Book

An inspired set of soulful anthems put together by Harmless UK – one that's not so subtly inspired by the 2012 London Olympic Games – with a pretty deep selection of classic era Northern Soul, uptempo R&B, funk and otherwise driving, dancefloor-ready soul!

✨✧ Chris McGregorIn His Good Time (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ogun (UK), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Amazing sounds from the legendary Chris McGregor – a rare set of solo piano performances that shows a whole new side of his genius! The music here is still steeped in South African roots, yet has a style that's a bit more personal and intimate than some of Chris' better-known recordings with The Brotherhood Of Breath, or The Blue Notes – as McGregor here has to carry all the weight on his own – and does a tremendous job of spinning out these haunting melodies on piano – usually with a rhythmic pulse that's as compelling as the tune! The style's got echoes of previous Afro-inspired piano jazz from Randy Weston or Dollar Brand – but there's a deftness, and sense of feeling here that's completely McGregor's own – a really compelling quality that holds us rapt in ways that few other solo piano sets might do. This CD brings together lots more material than was on the original LP release – over 70s minutes of music, with track sthat include "Call", "Raincloud", "Umhome", "Mngqusho", "The Bride", "In His Good Time", "Ududu Nombambula", "Kwa Tebugo", and "Green Hymn".
