Gladys KnightBefore Me ... CD
Verve, 2006. Used ... $6.99
Gladys Knight pays tribute to a range of singers who came before her – Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, and others – all the while earning our respect for her new inflections of these classics! The style here is less "torch revival" than you'd expect – and in a surprising turn, Knight doesn't simply revisit the older modes of singing, but works here in a more progressive, more positive approach that's got a really bold sort of sound. Arrangements are by Billy Childs and John Clayton – and instrumentation is a mix of small combo backing and other numbers that feature the fuller Clayton/Hamilton Orchestra. Titles include "This Bitter Earth", "The Man I Love", "Come Sunday", "Stormy Weather", "I'll Be Seeing You", "But Not For Me", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me", and "God Bless The Child".

✨✧ Gladys Knight & The PipsClaudine – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Buddah, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful mid 70s set from Gladys Knight & The Pips – a soundtrack date written and produced by Curtis Mayfield, who really helps bring a lot of depth to their music! Curtis really helps Knight and the group get out of some of their hit cliches of the 70s, and find some hipper space for the setting of the film – a mixture of some of the mellower tracks that Gladys' always sparkles on, mixed with some badder-stepping numbers that further deepen the groove – and which has kept the album alive over the years, thanks to some key hip hop samples. Tracks include the sublime "The Makings Of You", plus "Mr Welfare Man", "To Be Invisible", "Claudine Theme", "On and On", and "Hold On". LP, Vinyl record album

Martha ReevesRest Of My Life (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/FTG, 1976. Used ... $8.99
Great solo work from Motown legend Martha Reeves – a singer who managed to keep on going strongly after parting ways with the Vandellas! The set's got Martha's wonderful voice set up in a very different way – on a mix of mellow, sophisticated ballads that are somewhere between Marlena Shaw and Gladys Knight – plus some more upbeat, soaring tunes that carry a lot of east coast club touches – a nice trace of Philly groove to help Reeves reach some of the dancefloor heights of before! Production (and we assume arrangements) are by Tony Silvester, Bert De Coteaux, General Johnson, and Tony Camillo – and tracks include "Thank You", "Love Blind", "You've Lost That Lovin Feelin", "The Rest Of My Life", "This Time I'll Be Sweeter", "Second Chance", and "Now That We Found Love". CD features 7 more bonus tracks – all different mixes of LP titles! CD

VariousComplete Motown Singles Vol 7 – 1967 (limited edition 5CD set) ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, 1967. Used 5CDs ... $79.99
The Motown powerhouse is really humming along in 1967 – hitting some of its highest heights to date, and starting to open up even more from its hit formula of a few years before! As with other sets in this amazing series, this 7th volume of Complete Motown Singles is a treasure trove through and through – a package that goes way past the familiar hits of the year (even though there were plenty), to showcase a Motown that's still concerned with trying out new artists and ideas – even though it could have rested on its laurels and just survived off the hits at the time! The package features a whopping 120 tracks in all – presented with the same beautiful packaging as other volumes: a hardcover, book-like format that features 110 pages worth of notes, photos, images, and other details to support the music – plus 5CDs worth of music – by artists who include Brenda Holloway, The Contours, Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, Marvelettes, Paul Peterson, The Spinners, Stevie Wonder, The Isley Brothers, Barbara McNair, San Remo Golden Strings, R Dean Taylor, The Underdogs, Shorty Long, The Elgins, The Messengers, Chris Clark, Edwin Starr, Tammi Terrell, and many more! Also features a bonus 7" single of "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" and "It's Time To Go Know" by Gladys Knight & The Pips – done just like the original! CD

VariousLove & Affection – More Motown Girls ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $16.99
Stunning soul from the Motown label – a huge amount of tracks that were recorded by the company during their key years in soul music, but which are issued here for the first time ever! The depths of Motown never fail to amaze us – because even though these tracks might have lain in the vaults, they're still better than most of the competition – and not only match some of the bigger cuts by the artists involved, but also shed new light upon the careers of some of the lesser-known female singers in the Motown stable! These aren't throwaway numbers – and instead, the collection's brimming over with wicked Detroit soul groovers from the 60s – 25 tracks in all, supported by some nicely thorough notes on the project and recordings. Titles include "Mr Pride & Mr Gloom" by Connie Haines, "Just Go On Sleeping" by LaBrenda Ben, "Reassure Me That You Love Me" by Brenda Holloway, "Midnight Johnny (early version)" by Liz Lands, "I Can't Make It Without You" by Debbie Dean, "Close My Crying Eyes" by Yvonne Fair, "Forgotten" by Chris Clark, "Lover Man" by Kim Weston, "Check Yourself" by Chris Clark, "The Good Times Are Gone" by Barbara McNair, "Momma Tried To Warn Me" by Oma Heard, "Now That Love Is Gone" by Hattie Littles, "My Love Is Your Love" by Barbara Randolph, "The Things Time Can't Erase" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, and "Mother Tell Me What To Do" by Martha Reeves & The Vandellas.
