✨✧ General CrookTell Me What'Cha Gonna Do (When You Want To Be Loved)/Reality ... 7-inch
Wand, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
"Tell Me What'cha Gonna Do" is one of the General's best sweet soul cuts – a slow-building number with falsetto soul at the start, and a deeper approach as the track builds and builds in a style that reminds us a bit of the Soul Children. "Reality" is funkier – kind of a righteous message cut with some nice electric piano, guitar, and bass – grooving hard until Crook comes in on vocals. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ General CrookWhat Time It Is (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Down To Earth, Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best tracks from this Chicago funk legend! The tune starts with a great break, has a fuzzed-out Superfly kind of groove, and funks it on in a totally righteous way! Loads of great fuzzy guitar – and a very hip sound that takes it past most of The General's other work! 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousSoul On The Real Side #6 ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $14.99
An all-classic volume of this wonderful series – one that offers up way more rare 70s tracks than on some of their previous editions – including a lot of cuts that we'd never heard before! Lots of this work is in a really unique spot – not funk, not mainstream soul, but also not disco or club either – and instead in a territory that's a bit pre-modern soul, when artists were turning towards upbeat modes, both in sound and spirit – but still mostly keeping things at a warmly personal level! Some of these tunes remind us of some of our favorite Chicago soul – like work from the Brunswick/Dakar label – but others have more of an east coast vibe, and the tunes flow together wonderfully in that way that really makes us know when we've stepped into something special. Titles include "Something New About You" by Silent Majority, "Funny How We've Changed Places" by Debra Anderson, "Thanks But No Thanks" by General Crook, "Woman" by The Nicky Newarkers, "You Got To Know Better" by Touch Of Class, "When A Boy Falls In Love" by Willie Hutch, "I Love You" by Weldon Irvine, "Soul Travelin (part 1)" by Gary Byrd, "Mr Magic Man" by Wilson Pickett, "I Need Your Love" by Clydene Jackson, "Open Up Your Heart" by Wood Brass & Steel, "I Trust You" by Billy Paul, "Now That You're Gone" by Sonny Turner & Sound Limited, "I Only Hurt Myself" by Lonnie Youngblood, and "Better Late That Never" by Diane Ducane.
