Otis ClayTurn Back The Hands Of Time/Good Lovin ... 7-inch
Elka, Mid 70s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
An obscure one – as Otis does a cover of Tyrone Davis' "Turn Back The Hands Of Time", grooving the track along with a sweet style that's got a bit of modern soul, and which has his voice sounding a lot stronger than on some of his Hi recordings. "Good Lovin" is a midtempo number with a vamping groove – and Otis voice is great as he snakes around the sound of the rhythm section! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has a small sticker.)

Oneohtrix Point NeverGood Time – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack ... CD
Warp, 2017. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
The contemporary soundtrack is alive and well in the hands of an artist like Oneohtrix Point Never – brought back to a new sense of intensity that it hadn't had since the early days of electronic pioneers like John Carpenter and David Lynch! Tracks are mostly spare, but striking – and, a bit like the music to Speed, the score here has a way of referencing past modes, but condensing things with a more contemporary vibe – shaking out any of the cheesier possibilities, and really making sounds that have a strong current of darkness! Titles include "Romance Apocalypse", "The Acid Hits", "Entry To White Castle", "Ray Wakes Up", "6th Floor", "Hospital Escape", "Bail Bonds", and "The Pure & The Damned", which features Iggy Pop. CD

✨✧ Michael DeaseAll These Hands ... CD
Posi tone, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful set from trombonist Micheal Dease – possibly his best yet and certainly one of his most ambitious – tracing the history of American jazz from region to region in a way that's as fresh, presently vital as can be! It starts with "Creole Country" and from there rolls on through a dozen original songs strongly imbued with the sounds, styles and moods of jazz from coast to coast. Here more than ever Dease shows his strengths as a leader – his phrasing and "voice" on trombone have such a wonderfully uplifting effect on diverse numbers – and the range of styles provides ample opportunity for an expanded roster to shine as well. Pianist Rene Rosnes and drummer Lewis Nash are amazing, not to overlook any of the other players, including Steve Wilson on flute and saxes, Gerald Cannon and Rodney Whittaker on bass, Randy Napoleon on guitar on few tunes and more. Other titles include "Downtown Chi-Town", Benny's Bounce", Delta City Crossroads", "Good & Terrible", "Brooklyn", "Memphis BBQ & Fish Fry", "Up South Reverie", "Black Bottom Reverie" and more. CD

✨✧ VariousNorthern & Rare Soul Collector – Together For The First Time – Originally Unreleased ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning set of rare soul from the glory days of the Northern Soul years – and even more amazing because none of these tunes were ever issued at the time! Yet these aren't second-hand cuts that have lain in the vaults, nor the dregs of good recording sessions – and instead, these are killer tracks that finally saw the light of day on various reissues over the decades – years after their conception, but with enough space to have gotten them plenty of spins on later generations of Northern Soul dancefloors. The work is all wonderful – really top-shelf material that's right up there with Detroit or Philly classics – often recorded by artists you'll know from other great singles too. Titles include "Push A Little Harder" by The Metros, "Honey Please Stay" by United Four, "Turn Back The Hands Of Time" by Lonnie Youngblood, "I Wish You The World Of Happiness" by Shirley Turner, "I'm Not Afraid" by Sharon Scott, "You Only Live Twice" by Lorraine Chandler, "The Magic Touch" by Melba Moore, "It's Torture" by Maxine Brown, "Ooh It Hurts Me" by The Cavaliers, and "Hey Girl" by Porgy & The Monarchs.

✨✧ Marcos AmorimSea Of Tranquility ... CD
Adventure Music, 2016. Used ... $3.99
Beautifully subtle guitar work from Marcos Amorim – a musician who plays an electric instrument, but can often make it feel as if waves of sound are just cascading out gently into the air – more tone than attack on the strings, with this style that's deft, but very unassuming – and which works especially well with the Fender Rhodes lines used on a good number of tracks on the album! The balance is key to Amorim's talents – as the whole thing would be too smooth or slick in the hands of someone else, but still has that up-close, personal vibe we loved in Marcos' other albums for Adventure. Other instrumentation includes bass and drums – and singer Delia Fischer appears on a few of the album's tracks, although the set is mostly instrumental overall. Titles include "Bolero", "January Ashes", "Dance Of The Five Princesses", "Sea Of Tranquility", "The Further Away The Closer I Get", "Sea Time", and "My African Goddess". CD

Julius BrockingtonSophisticated Funk ... LP
Today, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Funky keyboard tracks from Julius Brockington – a mad early 70s figure who not only cut some wild funk, but who also ended up doing a fair bit of gospel work in later years. This set's a good bit of stoner funk tracks – in the wilder mode of the Perception/Today label – and it's got production by Boo Frazier and Patrick Adams that is very "hands off" when it comes to Brockington's keys. The track list includes covers of some soul stuff like "Rock Steady" and "Do Your Thing" (which is done in a nice long version), plus a good original called "Cold Water". LP, Vinyl record album

Bob DylanBootleg Series 1-3 – Rare & Unreleased 1961 to 1991 (5LP box set) ... LP
Columbia, 1960s/1970s/1980s. Sealed 5LP Box Set ... $59.99
The first entry in the Bob Dylan series from Columbia – and maybe still one of the most important – as it really focused on the kind of special material that had been changing hands in the underground for decades – part of that secret knowledge that would always make diehard Dylan fans sneer at anyone who only knew the official albums! There's some really amazing stuff here – especially great album outtakes, especially from classics like Freewheelin Bob Dylan and The Times They Are A Changin – plus some unusual 70s moments, weird early demo and live tracks, and lots more. Despite the large date rate, the set skews pretty heavily towards the mid 60s – which represents probably 50% of the material, alongside a good chunk of 70s tracks, and a few scattered 80s and 90s moments. Titles include "House Carpenter", "Hard Times In New York Town", "Mama You Been On My Mind", "Sitting On A Barbed Wire Fence", "Wallflower", "Santa Fe", "Who Killed Davey Moore (Live)", "Paths Of Victory", "Talkin Hava Negeilah Blues", "Let Me Die In My Footsteps", "Man On The Street", "Suze (The Cough Song)", "Seven Curses", "every Grain Of Salnd", "Catfish", "Tell Me", "Series Of Dreams", and lots lots more.

Amp FiddlerMotor City Booty (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Midnight Riot/Octave (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... $28.99
Amp Fiddler's got his hands on some motor city booty – and the result is one of his greatest records in years – a funky little album that mixes up his 21st Century Detroit groove with some older soundtrack styles and blacksploitation modes! The titles of the tunes give a good idea of the flavor of the set – "Soul Fly (parts 1 & 2)", "Return Of The Ghetto Fly", "Superficial", "Slippin On Ya Pimpin", and "Steppin" – and the man himself is pictured on the back cover looking very Superfly – in a way that nicely supports his work on the set. The rhythms are definitely in a contemporary mode – with lots of cosmic house elements in the mix – but there's also an older current that really gives the record a deeper sound – which might also come from the album's co-production with Yam Who. In addition to the titles mentioned above, the set also features a great remake of "1960 What?" – and this CD features bonus tracks "Soul Fly (part 1 – Sam Redmore rmx)" and "Gotta Get Home". CD

Marvin GayeWhat's Going On (original gatefold) ... LP
Tamla, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $34.99
One of the few cases in the history of pop music where the record is worth all the hype! Marvin blew everyone's mind when he unleashed this amazing suite of political soul tunes – not only just because he'd moved past the simple love songs of earlier years, but also because he was working with an amazingly complicated approach to soul music, one that would touch the work of others for years to come. David Van DePitte arranged and conducted the whole album – with soaring orchestrations mixed with smooth modern soul, in a style that reminds us a lot of the work of Charles Stepney at Cadet, who'd been doing this sort of thing for years but with less success. In the hands of Marvin Gaye, though, the material has an amazing quality – and all the disparate elements of the album are fused together in one powerful message by Marvin's incredible voice. One that we never tire of, and a record to be listened to all the way through every time. Titles include "What's Goin On", "Save The Children", "Flyin High (In The Friendly Sky)", "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)", and "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)". LP, Vinyl record album

Jose JamesLove In A Time Of Madness ... CD
Blue Note, 2017. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
Jose James has a very different look on the cover this time around – and he's got a very different sound, as well – something that might be underscored by the parental advisory logo in the bottom corner of the image! The music is far from the straight jazz or rootsy soul of previous albums from James – and has more of a slimmed-down, slightly-cosmic blend of keyboards and rhythm programs – often set to a slow pace that works perfectly with the depth of Jose's vocals, and given the kind of slight electro crackle that a few other underground soul artists were exploring in the previous decade. The approach is still very fresh, though – especially in the hands of Jose, whose vocals are often so great, they often really get to stretch out and flow in the spareness of the setting. Definitely more soul than jazz, and the album features guest appearances by Mali Music and Oleta Adams – on titles that include "Always There", "What Good Is Love", "Remember Our Love", "Ladies Man", "To Be With You", "Let It Fall", "I'm Yours", "Breathrough", and "Closer".

Howard McGhee/Kenny DrewHoward McGhee Vol 1/Introducing Kenny Drew ... CD
Blue Note, Early 50s. Used ... $9.99
Howard McGhee's trumpet work for Blue Note was probably his best-ever – and it sparkles with a modernist approach to bebop that shows the early-50's maturity of the movement in the hands of its masters. McGhee leads a crackling sextet here that includes Max Roach, JJ Johnson, Kenny Drew, and the great Brew Moore on tenor. The titles alone should give you an idea of the kind of energy and imagination fueling this set: "Lo-Flame", "Fluid Drive", and "Fugetta" – and the packaging of CD retains all of the original packaging of the original 10" release, which has a very cool abstract graphics look! As an added bonus, you also get another rare 10" jazz session – the early 50's trio album that was pianist Kenny Drew's first session as a leader. Between the two albums, the CD contains a total of 17 cuts – a whopping good deal, especially when you consider that the original albums would probably cost you $200 apiece! CD

✨✧ RogerMany Facets Of Roger/Saga Continues/Unlimited (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Robinsongs (UK), Mid 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99
A trio of albums from Roger – with bonus tracks too! On the first album, there's Many Facets Of Roger – and they're all pretty darn funky! From this vantage point, all we can think of is that Roger Troutman must have had some sort of crystal ball to see into the hip hop sampling future – either that, or he was busy cooking up west coast gangster funk drones in some secret So Cal laboratory! Whatever the case, though, the record's a classic in the Troutman/Zapp catalog – and features a sparkling west coast take on electro – offered up with lots of popping basslines, snapping electric kickdrums, and a truckfull of vocoder! There's also some pretty nice guitar in the mix – especially on the good jazzy groover "Chunk Of Sugar", which sounds like it's from a completely different record. Other tracks include "Maxx Axe", "Do It Roger", "So Ruff, So Tuff", and "Blue". The Saga Continues finds Roger still rocking his trademark effects laden vocals and vamping guitar work into the middle of the decade – with even tighter syncopated percussion, funky keys, and sharp synth bursts – sailing in a killer groove throughout! Roger produced the record along with Larry Troutman – and they bring in Maceo Parker for a horn solo and Ohio Player Billy Beck for keyboards as well! Tracks include a vocoder funk reading of Wilson Pickett's "Midnight Hour", plus "In The Mix", "Play Your Guitar Brother Roger", "The Break Song", "I Keep Trying", "Bucket Of Blood", "T C Song", and "Girl Cut It Out". Unlimited has Roger going for a sound that's maybe even more electro than some of his earlier solo work, at a level that really seems to be pushing the Zapp sound further for the 80s! The style is funky, but touched with lots of elements that have wended their way from indie hip hop up to mainstream soul – all at a level that later acts might fuse together with a bit more warmth, but which still has the starker feel of electro soul in Troutman's hands. Titles include "Thrill Seekers", "I Want To Be You Man", "I Really Want to Be You Man", "Night & Day", and "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag". Bonus tracks include "Please Come Home For Christmas", "Bedisguitarist-A-Rown", and 7" mixes of "Heard It Through The Grapevine (part 1)", "Do It Roger", "In The Mix", "I Want To Be Your Man", and "Midnight Hour (part 1)".

Gil Scott-HeronReflections ... CD
Arista (Germany), 1981. Used ... $6.99
A great little album that's often overshadowed by its hit – the 15 minute "B-Movie", which was sort of an overly-wrought protest piece about how the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 was going to turn America into a bad b-movie. Not that that track's bad – although its politics have certainly dated by now – but the real strength of the album are the jazzy numbers, written in Gil's beautiful righteous style forged in the soul jazz underground of the 70s. These include the stellar "Is That Jazz?", a contemplative track about the future of the art form, a mellow version of Bill Withers' "Grandma's Hands", the moody "Storm Music", and "Gun", a good groover with a message about the right to bear arms.

VariousBob Holmes' Nashville Soul ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
An overlooked strand of southern soul – a range of great productions by Bob Holmes, who was kind of an underground figure on the Nashville scene – where he turned out great soul singles like these amidst the larger shadows of the country music industry! The work here not only bears no resemblance to the usual Nashville sounds, it also often sounds a lot more like soul music from points north, or the late 60s Cali scene – very sophisticated arrangements, a positive vibe overall, and none of the more rootsy elements you might expect. There's definitely a few deep soul singers in the mix, but in the hands of Holmes they often come across with a very different vibe – especially in the company of all the rare singles on the set, which also includes a number of never-issued tracks! The whole thing's a great entry into the soul archive efforts of Ace/Kent Records – the kind of material they almost do better than anyone else – and titles include "I Dedicate My Life To You" by Robert Hatcher, "Got To Get Used To You" by The Avons, "Leave It Up To The Boys" by Sandra King, "Runaway Girl" by the Hytones, "Crying Won't Help You Now" by Johnny Truitt, "I Know" by The Golden Bond, "Steady" by Eddie & Freddie, "I Can't Love Nobody But You" by Roscoe Shelton, "Somebody Somewhere" by Gene Allison, "The Streets Got My Lady" by Bill Brandon, "You Never Had It So Good" by Eddie Frierson, and "You Must Leave Her Because You Love Her" by The Paramount Four.

VariousChicago Soul – Electric Blues, Funk & Soul – The New Sound Of Chicago In The 1960's ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), 1960s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99
A massive overview of the genius Chicago scene of the late 60s – and a set that's overflowing with some of the heaviest music ever recorded! The collection focuses on the most groundbreaking work from the later Chess years – particularly the funky blues, psychedelic soul, and tripped out jazz that was coming out of the Cadet Concept studios in the hands of producers like Charles Stepney, Richard Evans, and Marshall Chess! The Chess groups were ahead of their time by decades – blending together styles without a thought of simple genre restrictions, often forsaking chart fame and record sales in pursuit of an adventurous groove. And while some of the artists on the set may be familiar names, we can promise that most of them are presented in styles that you may not have heard before – as the collection features many unreissued numbers that are making their first reappearance here! 2LP set comes with a great set of notes on the inner sleeve – and features 20 tracks in all, including "Please Newsboy" by Eve Barnum, "Burning Spear" by Soulful Strings, "More & More" by Little Milton, "Baltimore Oriole" by Lorez Alexandria, "Soul Vibrations" by Dorothy Ashby, "Evil" by Howlin Wolf, "Stereo Freeze" by The Stereos, "The Way I Feel" by Phil Upchurch, "Mama's Got A Good Thing" by Laura Lee, "The Wailer" by Sonny Cox, "Leave It In The Hands Of Love" by Fontella Bass, "Why Am I Treated So Bad" by The Majestic Choir & The Soul Stirrers, "She Suits Me To A Tee" by Buddy Guy, "Memory Band" by Rotary Connection, and "In My Body's House" by Gene Chandler.

VariousGotta Get Up – The Songs Of Harry Nilsson 1965 to 1972 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
Harry Nilsson may be best-remembered for a hit that he sang penned by Fred Neill – but the man himself was a hell of a songwriter in the 60s – with an incredible approach to a tune that was unlike any of his contemporaries! Nilsson could be both sweet and nostalgic and slightly wry at the same time – touch on themes that would have turned to too-soft candyfloss in the hands of lesser writers – but which were balanced perfectly between sing-song lines and deeper emotional content – in ways that always made a song by Nilsson a really unique treat! And while we love Harry's own records from the time – especially for their arrangements and production – his songs also worked surprisingly well in the hands of other artists – with a great range of styles that are presented here. The set collects two dozen numbers that really draw focus to Nilsson's songwriting skills – along with track-by track notes – for titles that include "Story Of Rock & Roll" by Collage, "1941" by Tom Northcott, "This Could Be The Night" by the MFQ, "Mournin Glory Story" by Al Kooper, "Poly High" by Harpers Bizarre, "Best Friend" by Puppet, "He Little Girl" by Jimmie Cross, "Best Friend" by Puppet, "Ten Little Indians" by The Yardbirds, "Without Her" by Blood Sweat & Tears, "Let Me Go" by Pat & Andre, "Bath" by Doris, "Daddy's Song" by The Monkees, "Paradise" by The Shangri-Las, "I Said Goodbye To Me" by The Glass Menagerie, "Sleep Late My Lady Friend" by Jose Feliciano, "Good Times" by Alan Lake, and "The Next Day" by Debbie Burton.

An incredible collection – and one that fills in a crucially under-documented side of the New York dancefloor generation – the wealth of special mixes and edits that were made for that city's important DJs for their own use in clubs! The package sorts through a mountain of never-issued acetates, and goes way past conventional disco or rare club collections – to showcase the special mixing talents these DJs brought to their re-presentation of the material – which was usually done on tape, then pressed onto acetate discs for their own private use!

✨✧ Tina BrooksComplete Blue Note Recordings Of Tina Brooks (4LP set) ... LP
Mosaic, Early 60s. Used 4LPs & Book ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very nice! Tenorist Tina Brooks had one rare album released for Blue Note (the classic True Blue), but he also recorded 3 others for the label which never came out. Although one of them, Back To The Tracks, has since come out in the US, there's 2 more albums on here that have not been released over here. All four are great, and feature prime Blue Note hardbop by one of the best underrated tenor talents in the business. He's playing here with all star groups on every session, and players include Johnny Coles, Freddie Hubbard, Lee Morgan, Sonny Clark, Jackie McLean, and Art Blakey. Great stuff, with 4 very nicely pressed LPs, and a good booklet with photos, writings, and a discography. The whole thing's handsomely packaged in a nice box, and we're not sure, but isn't it out of print by now? LP, Vinyl record album
(Box and book are in great shape!)

✨✧ Lee PerryDubstrumentals – Kung Fu Meets The Dragon/Return Of Wax/Musical Bones ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1975. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Three hard to get and blazingly badass dub sets from the Upsetter and crew, pulled together to make one smoking double CD set. Kung Fu Meets The Dragon is one of the most sought after Upsetter sides, from the late Black Ark period, originally only issued in a small batch, and hopelessly hard to find for years. This excellent dub LP is as dope as all get out, from the kung fu imagery to the spare, funky dubs rolling along on heavy bass, quacking clavinet and earth shaking drums. Musical Bones is another lost, hard to get set, and delivers the same spacey goods: raw, gritty, funky jams cut at the Black Ark during the height of Perry's most creative period. Vin Gordon's trombone is pushed waaaay up to the front of the mix in these instrumental versions, which are basically dubs, though there's not too much in the way of echo drops and atom bomb reverb – but on this album that's just the way we like it, so we can feel every beat of the chunky rhythms! And Return Of Wax was pulled from from the same sessions that gave us the Kung Fu Meets the Dragon set, you know it's right. Tracked by Perry with Upsetters in 1975, these stripped down dubs feature some of the dopest, funky rhythms Scratch ever cut, while others have a super spare, loping Jamaican groove. The sound is crisp and tight, without the giant thunderclaps and echo drops you'd here in a Tubby mix, but chirping guitars and sublimely funky bass ducking in and out of the mix. 35 smoking jams in all, including "Enter The Dragon", "Hold Them Kung Fu", "Scorching Iron", "Black Belt Jones", "Skango", "Exit The Dragon", "Iron Fist", "Coco-Macca", "The Message", "Licky Licky", "Quinge Up", "Raw Chaw", "Four Of A Kind", "Voodoo Man", "Last Blood", "Deathly Hands", "Dragon Slayer", "One Armed Boxer", "Fists Of Vengeance", "Samurai Swordsman" and "Final Weapon".

✨✧ John ColtraneCosmic Music ... LP
Impulse/Superior Viaduct, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A set that really earns its title – as it's easily some of the most cosmic music John Coltrane ever recorded – and also kind of a way of saying goodbye to the planet, to leave his music in the hands of a next generation of creators! The album features material recorded by a Coltrane group in 1966, and an Alice Coltrane combo in 1968, after Coltrane's death – making it a great link between two moments in the group – especially since Pharoah Sanders plays tenor and Alice Coltrane plays piano on both tracks. The Coltrane tunes – "Manifestation" and "Reverend King" – both have a righteous raw power – and the Alice Coltrane numbers – "The Sun" and "Lord Help Me" – really showcase the slower-building spiritual energy that both she and Pharoah Sanders would carry on in their music. Great stuff throughout – and completely essential! LP, Vinyl record album
(Issued here with the great original cover art from the indie Coltrane Music release!)

✨✧ VariousAOR Breaks – Original Classics Sampled By Hip Hop's Finest ... LP
Warner (Australia), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Back in the day, it seemed like the only real source for hip hop was old funk and soul records – yet over the years, as production advanced, DJs found plenty of great grooves back in the 70s mainstream – by pillaging great records like this from the glory days of AOR! The set may well be one of the most unique sample collections we've ever heard – as it features a shameless collection of AM radio goodies from the 70s – but which have all grown to live anew in the hands of artists like Biz Markie, Warren G, Nas, Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa, De La Soul, and others! Some of these are tracks we always liked back in the day – numbers that really stood out from others in the mainstream mix – but they seem to get even more of a sparkle in a set like this, especially given the familiarity of the tunes from their re-use in hip hop tracks. Titles include "Lowdown" by Boz Scaggs, "Sailing" by Christopher Cross, "I Keep Forgettin" by Michael McDonald, "Give Me The Night" by George Benson, "Woman To Woman" by Joe Cocker, "Fly Like An Eagle" by Steve Miller, "Africa" by Toto, "I Can't Go For That" by Hall & Oates, "Summer Breeze" by Seals & Crofts, "This Is It" by Kenny Loggins, "Mr Blue" by Michael Franks, and "Tightrope" by Electric Light Orchestra.

Eliot ZigmundTime Was ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2017. New Copy ... $15.99 19.99
Drummer Eliot Zigmund rose to great fame in the trio of Bill Evans in the late 70s – and after that, he also had a strong stretch with pianist Don Friedman – both artists he seems to really pay tribute to here! The date's a nicely understated one – warm sounds that are spacious, but swinging – piano from Mike Eckroth, tenor and soprano from Chris Cheek, and bass from Morrie Louden – all players whose sense of timing is strongly matched with that of Zigmund, who only seems to take a few points in the recording to really state his presence. The choice of material here is wonderfully thoughtful, too – a range of tracks by Charles Minugs, Kurt Weil, Steve Swallow, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Gordon Jenkins, and others – all of which might have come out sounding a lot more hodge-podge in the hands of another leader, but which work together beautifully here. Titles include "Supposition", "Liebslied", "Duke Ellington's Sound Of Love", "Olha Maria", "Eiderdown", "Goodbye", and "Time Was". CD

✨✧ OV WrightBottom Line ... LP
Hi Records, 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
Great work from OV Wright – one of the few singers who was still strongly carrying the Hi Records torch at the end of the 70s! Although Wright had sometimes been bluesier in the past, his late 70s Hi sides have a much mellower, mature sort of feel – a ripening of the seeds in his Backbeat label work, taken to nice new heights at Hi in the hands of Willie Mitchell. Mitchell's backings have a feel that's somewhat like his work with Al Green, but OV's style of singing is completely different – not as overtly sexy, but really personal in approach. Titles include "That's The Way I Feel About Cha", "A Little More Time", "I Don't Know Why", "No Easy Way To Say Goodbye", "Let's Straighten It Out", and "The Bottom Line". LP, Vinyl record album
