Gladys KnightSolo Collection – Miss Gladys Knight/Gladys Knight (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
A pair of solo albums from Gladys Knight – back to back in a single set, with lots of bonus tracks too! First up is Miss Gladys Knight – her very first solo album, after years of recording with The Pips! The change has maybe a bit more focus on Knight's incredible vocals in the lead, but the approach is also strongly similar to the best work with The Pips at the same period – with the Jim Gilstrap singers providing backup vocals, but at a lighter level, with less harmonies that soar out – so that Knight really carries the tunes in a wonderful way. Most tracks are in that mellow mode that Gladys was really doing so well in the 70s – and titles include "I'm Coming Home Again", "I'm Still Caught Up With You", "The Way It Was", "I'll Take a Melody", "Love Gives You The Power", and "Sail Away/Freedom For The Stallion". The second set – Gladys Knight – is a really wonderful solo set by Gladys – a record that has her stepping out strongly on her own, during a brief break from The Pips! The set's arranged by Gene Page – who mixes together strings and soul at a level that supports the classy style that Knight had forged at Buddah Records on previous records with her group – but which also gives her a bit more of a modern soul vibe overall, very much in the increasingly sophisticated style that other female singers were getting at the time. There's a few groovers, and some great mellow cuts – and titles include "You Loved Away The Pain", "It's The Same Old Song", "The Best Thing We Can Do Is Say Goodbye", "My World", and "You Bring Out The Best In Me". CD features bonus tracks that include "Am I Too Late (single)", "It's The Same Old Song (ext single)", "You Bring Out The Best In Me (single)", "You Bring Out The Best In Me (12" version)", "It's Me Again", "For All We Know", "Am I Losing You", and "Maybe Maybe Baby (1979 version)".

Gladys Knight & The PipsVisions (UK pressing) ... CD
CBS (UK), 1983. Used ... $6.99
Sweet 80s groove from Gladys Knight & The Pips – just the kind of record that shows why the group kept going strong for so many years! The classic approach is still very firmly intact – Gladys' wonderful lead, soaring out over the Pips' warm harmonies – a vocal power that so many other groups could never get this right – evolved amazingly here from the early soul years of the group's origins. The approach of the set is lean and smooth, yet turns out to be a perfect fit for the maturing Knight/Pips sound – a mode that still keeps them right out in front of the pack, with a great mix of grooving and sophistication. Titles include "Save The Overtime (For Me)", "Heaven Sent", "When You're Far Away", "Just Be My Lover", "Don't Make Me Run Away", "Ain't No Greater Love", "O La De Da", "You're Number One", and the longstanding classic "Hero (Wind Beneath My Wings)".

✨✧ Gladys Knight & The PipsAbout Love ... LP
CBS, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Gladys Knight with Ashford & Simpson – a perfect pairing of two post-Motown talents! Gladys Knight & The Pips are one of those groups that never stopped being great – and later albums like this are well worth tracking down, especially with the team of Nick Ashford and Valerie Simpson making the quartet sound so great! As before, Gladys' lead vocals are tremendous – deeply soulful and always personal, quite far from any easy cliches – and supported wonderfully by the three male voices of The Pips. The Ashford & Simpson groove really helps keep things fresh, too – and the set's got a nice balance of uptempo cuts and some of the heartfelt mellow numbers Gladys always does so well. Titles include "Landlord", "Taste Of Bitter Love", "Get The Love", "Friendly Persuasion", "We Need Hearts", and a great reading of the club classic "Bourgie Bourgie". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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

Patty & The EmblemsMixed-Up, Shook-Up Girl ... CD
Philly Archives, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
Sweet female soul from Philly – featuring 24 tracks by Patty & The Emblems, a group in the tradition of Gladys Knight & The Pips, or more specifically, Brenda & The Tabulations, in that the quartet is fronted by a female singer, with a trio of guys doing backup harmony. Patty's got a great voice – a little raw, which makes for a nice counterpoint next to the smoother sounds of the guys – and the Ben/Lee production on the tracks gives most of the tunes a strong mid 60s romping Northern groove. The CD also features 4 tracks recorded in 1999 by Patty, done in a mode that's much more in a sophisticated soul vein – but it's the 60s work that really sends the set! Titles include "Mixed Up Shook Up Girl", "You Took Advantage Of A Good Thing", "I'm Gonna Love You A Long Time", "My Heart's So Full Of You", "Give Me Time", "Love Will Come", "Ordinary Guy", "I'll Cry Later", and "All My Tomorrows Are Gone".

VariousLove & Affection – More Motown Girls ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $13.99
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.

VariousMessin Around Root Down! – A Selection of Dancefloor Jazz, Funky Flavas, & Block Rockin Latin Beats ... CD
Verve/Universal (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used ... $16.99
A great little set of jazzy grooves – put together by the Messin Around team from London's Jazz Cafe! The package features 18 groovy little gems – a mix of funk and strident jazz dancers, handled with the fresh approach of the London scene, and with a feel that reminds us a lot of some of the best Gilles Peterson compilations for Talking Loud. There's plenty of gems on here that haven't been reissued – plus other tunes that have provided samples for the likes of The Beastie Boys or Fat Boy Slim. Includes the totally rare Roy Ayers cut "Party Sex", worth the price of the compilation alone – plus "La Descarga Del Bobo" by Willie Bobo, "Cloudburst" by Jon Hendricks, "Outrageous" by Johnny Pate, "Burning Spear" by Kenny Burrell, "Jim On The Move" by Lalo Schifrin, "Sliced Tomatoes" by The Just Brothers, "Gimme Some More (very live)" by The JBs, "The Sidewinder" by Kai Winding, "Sunny" by Herb Albert, "Mathar" by Dave Pike, "Afrodisia (Snowboy rmx)" by Roy Hargrove's Cristal, "Au Right" by George Duke, and "Got Myself A Good Man" by Gladys Knight.

Motown/Universal (UK), 1960s. New Copy 7 x 7 inch ... $78.99
The vinyl debut of 14 rare gems from Motown – all cuts that were only dug up much later than the time at which they were recorded – and which made brief appearances on a variety of different CD reissues over the past decade or so – but appear here on vinyl for the first time ever!

✨✧ Rozetta JohnsonWoman's Way – The Complete Rozetta Johnson 1963 to 1975 ... CD
Clintone/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The complete recordings of a crucially overlooked deep soul singer – the amazing Rozetta Johnson, a voice that should have been as big as Aretha Franklin or Gladys Knight, if there were any justice in the world! And Johnson isn't just a great singer on her own – she gets incredible help here from Sam Dees – a hell of a songwriter, and a great producer that puts Rozetta in perfect territory – a mode that's often more righteous than traditional southern soul, with some funky currents at the bottom – and an overall badass vibe that fits her vocals perfectly! There was a previous collection of Rozetta's music about a decade ago – but this set supercedes that with excellent sound and some unreleased alternate tracks, too – plus the usual top-shelf Ace/Kent presentation, which makes the collection as much of a joy to hold as it is to hear. Titles include "Mama Was A Bad Seed (alt)", "You Better Keep What You Got (alt)", "I Can Feel My Love Coming Down", "It's Been So Nice", "Personal Woman", "Chained & Bound", "Holding The Losing Hand", "Who Are You Gonna Love (Your Woman Or Your Wife)", "Mine Was Real", "A Woman's Way", "Willow Weep For Me", "That Hurts", "For That Man Of Mind", "How Can You Lose Something You Never Had", and "To Love Somebody".

✨✧ VariousMotortown Revue Live – Special Guest The Temptations ... LP
Motown, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best Motortown Revue albums – thanks to a decidedly heavy groove! The album does a great job of showcasing some of the rising talents at Motown at the end of the 60s – and although it does feature work by a few bigger acts, it's the up-and-comers who are the real surprise here – sounding a bit more unbridled in this live setting than on their studio work. Titles include "Does Your Mama Know About Me" and "Malinda" by Bobby Taylor, "I Can't Turn You Loose" and "I Wouldn't Change The Man He Is" by Blinky, "Sing A Simple Song" by The Originals, "Uptight" by Stevie Wonder, "Cloud Nine" by The Temptations, and a number of tracks by Gladys Knight & The Pips, including a very cool "Monologue" track that's a bit like Lou Rawls live! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousComplete Motown Singles Vol 7 – 1967 (limited edition 5CD set) ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, 1967. Used 5 CDs ... Out Of Stock
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
