Tiara, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $3.99
A sweet little harmony track from Chicago – begins with a horn flourish, and has the group singing together with a little break in their vocals, nice and sweet, soaring up after the hook, and settling down again nicely on the verses. Written by General Crook, who also produced! 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousBill Brewster Presents Tribal Rites (3CD set) ... CD
Eskimo (UK), 1970s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 3CD ... $21.99
Bill Brewster's taught us plenty about music over the years – both as a writer and dancefloor historian, and with some of his ultra-cool collections for various labels! But this time around, Bill tells us as much about himself as he does the history of popular music – by tying together some of his favorite records of the 70s and 80s, in a mix of modes that's nicely loose, and which features loads of great surprises along the way! The set's not your standard mix of funk and dancefloor tracks – as the vibe here is maybe more like some of those cool celebrity-chosen collections from a decade or so back – like the great Trip series, or some of its contemporaries. And although we always thought Brewster really knew a lot about music, he really blows us away here – with a huge amount of tracks that we'd never heard before, all working together in great new ways in the setting. Titles include "Maranatha" by Latin Breed, "Rhythm Kung Fu" by Banzai, "Cartoon People" by Freddi & Henchi, "Life In The Big City" by The General, "No Limit" by Final Edition, "Issmak" by Apatchi Band, "Reggae Makossa" by Brent Dowe & The Gaytones, "Rejoice" by Agape, "Animal Rhapsody (version)" by The Raincoats, "Side A Side B" by Deborah & The Puerto Ricans, "Walk On The Wild Side" by Jeff Duff, "Crazy Beat" by Motion, "Turning Back" by Peter Accident, "Family Prayer" by Clifton King, "Night Images (Swayzak early mid afternoon mix)" by Larry Heard, "Excursion 2" by B McCarthy & Rasoul, "What Time It Is (part 2 – Bill Brewster edit)" by General Crook, and "Don't Stay For Breakfast" by Stroer.

✨✧ Chairmen Of The BoardGive Me Just A Little More Time ... CD
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A landmark album of 70s soul – and perhaps the most enduring full LP by this enigmatic harmony group! The vocals of General Crook alone are more than enough to win us over – some of the most distinct lead soul singing we've ever heard, pitched perfectly with the backings of the rest of the group. But the overall package is even better – righteous arrangements that really show the new Holland-Dozier-Holland energy for the 70s – more of a punch than most of Motown a few years before, and open to some headier elements that only serve to do even more with the vocals! Titles include the group's huge hit "Give Me Just A Little More Time", a totally compelling number with a scattershot beat, and some wonderful lead vocals from the always-great General Johnson – plus, their cover of Clarence Carter's "Patches" – which was a big single for them – and the tracks "Bravo Hooray", "Since The Days Of Pigtails & Fairytales", "Come Together", "You've Got Me Dangling on a String" and "Tricked & Trapped".

✨✧ VariousSoul On The Real Side #6 ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.
