✨✧ Heaven & EarthHeaven & Earth ... LP
Mercury, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent work from this smooth Chicago vocal group! The album may well be the best the group ever recorded – and it features some stellar ballad work produced with a nice spacey tone, almost in a Rose Royce mellow mode – by Jerry Butler's Fountain Productions team and by Clarence Johnson, who brought the group up from the beginning! The real strength of the album, though, is the group's vocals – wonderfully harmonious, but with a rougher edge and a deeper soul than many other 70s groups of the same type. The album includes the massive semi-hit "Guess Who's Back In Town" – plus other good ballads like "How Do You Think You're Gonna Find Love", "Let's Work It Out", and "Distant Melody". The album also features some uptempo numbers – and other tracks include "Run & Tell That", "Dance A Thon", and "No Limit". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Heaven 17Luxury Gap ... LP
BEF/Virgin (UK), 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heaven 17 soften up their politics a bit with this second album (yet still address class inequality issues with the title!) – but they also manage to replace their Marxist agenda with some groovier, more soul-based tunes – just the kind of material that helped push them out of import obscurity into more of a crossover market in the US! The album's fondly remembered for the electro dancefloor numbers "Temptation", "Come Live With Me", and "Let Me Go" – all of which stand a cut above the work of their predecessors Human League, and show an ability to go past simple electronic pop riffs – even if they are all pretty darn catchy! Other tracks are great too – and the record has a joyous, optimistic quality that's every bit the best side of this scene from the early 80s generation. Titles include "We Live So Fast", "Best Kept Secret", "Crushed By The Wheels Of Industry", and "Key To The World". LP, Vinyl record album

Chris BartleySweetest Thing This Side Of Heaven ... LP
Vando, 1967. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A sweet soul classic from late 60s Philly – the one and only album recorded by vocalist Chris Bartley – arranged and produced by Van McCoy! The style's really great – with a host of original tunes by Van that follow nicely in the style of Chris' hit title cut, and which show him off to be quite a well-versed singer. We're not sure why he never made it bigger – but possibly he was so eclipsed by the talents of Van it was hard to get out on his own! Includes the hit title cut – "Sweetest Thing This Side Of Heaven" – plus "Gotta Tell Somebody", "For You", "Sittin Pretty", "Hooked On You", "I'll Be Loving You", and "Sugar Baby".

Oscar Brown Jr.Between Heaven & Hell ... LP
Columbia, 1962. Very Good ... $4.99
Great early work from Oscar Brown Jr – a hip mix of jazz and soul, working in Brown's unique sense of showmanship, and his almost beat-like flair with a lyric! Ralph Burns and Quincy Jones handled the arrangements – and the album's filled with great original tracks by Brown, including "Mr. Kicks", "Opportunity, Please Knock", Love is Like a New Born Child", "Elegy (Plain Black Boy)", "Hazel's Hips", and many more! Nice jazzy groove, and very much in the best style of Oscar's 60s work! LP, Vinyl record album

Sam Cooke with the Soul StirrersThat's Heaven To Me ... LP
Specialty, Late 50s. Very Good ... $6.99
It's a well-known fact that before Sam Cooke went into soul music, he was cutting some incredible work with the Soul Stirrers gospel quintet – work that was every bit as soulful and sexy as his pop hits, perhaps more so, given the supposedly restrained nature of the setting. This album brings together some very nice numbers from Sam's days with the group – a 12 track selection that includes the titles "I'm So Happy", "That's Heaven To Me", "Mean Old World", "Joy Joy To My Soul", "All Right Now", and "Lord, Remember Me".

✨✧ Miles DavisSeven Steps To Heaven ... LP
Columbia, 1963. Very Good ... $14.99
A key point in the development of the Miles Davis sound of the 60s – his first album to feature work from Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams – augmented by some equally nice work on other tracks from Victor Feldman and Frank Butler! The sound here is beautifully spare – a wonderful exploration of ideas that Miles had been putting forth on some other albums for Columbia, but crafted here with a vision that's apparent in the very first note – and which transforms both the tunes and the work of the players into a focused, near-perfect sound all the way through. Titles include "So Near So Far", "Seven Steps To Heaven", "I Fall In Love Too Easily", "Joshua", and "Basin Street Blues" – which even sounds great in this setting! LP, Vinyl record album

Rance Allen GroupBrothers ... LP
Truth/Stax, 1973. Very Good ... $16.99
A lesser-known gem from Rance Allen and group – recorded during their incredible early run at Stax! The sound here seems even more powerful than on the group's first album – a wicked blend of gospel and soul, served up with relatively spare instrumentation that features keyboards and strings, but still plenty of space for Rance and the other Allen brothers to open up with some incredible harmonies. And indeed, there's vocal passages on here that not only crackle with Rance's amazing lead, but which also have the supporting voices soaring to the skies with the kind of sound you'd expect from The Dramatics or The Temprees at the time! Titles include "Get Your Lives Together", "Time For Playing", "For Once In My Life", "Be True", "Heaven Is Where The Heart Is", and "We're The Salt Of The Earth". LP, Vinyl record album

Rance Allen GroupSoulful Experience ... LP
Truth/Stax, 1975. Very Good+ ... $16.99
A beautiful mix of gospel soul and heavy Memphis production – and the kind of heavy soul album that made Rance Allen one of Stax's best new artists during the 70s. David Porter produced and arranged, and the album has some great electric keyboard work by Rance that provides a perfect counterfoil for his rich baritone voice. The album's a lot more stripped down than later efforts – with a rootsy sound that should have made Rance even bigger with the crossover crowd. Titles include "Talk That Talk", "The Painter", "Ring My Bell", and "Harlem Heaven". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Average White BandCut The Cake ... LP
Atlantic, 1975. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
If you need to own one album by Average White Band, this is it! The album features the band at their funky best – playing hard and chopping away with a strong crossover sound that put them firmly on the map during the early 70s. Loads of tight rolling basslines and hard drums – all produced with that polished funky sound that was the band's stock-in-trade during the big chart years! The record includes their funky classic "School Boy Crush", still a sampling favorite – plus loads of other nice moments, like "If I Ever Lose This Heaven", "Cloudy", "High Flyin Woman", and the hit title cut "Cut The Cake".

BrainstormStormin' ... LP
Tabu, 1977. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A set that definitely lives up to its title – a stone stormer from Brainstorm – one of the tightest funky ensembles of their generation, and one of the few who could go deep while still laying down a groove! The set's got a perfect balance of modes – enough of the appeal of bigger mainstream funk acts of the time, but also some righteous undercurrents that really show the group's roots – both in the approach of the lyrics, and in the jazzy instrumentation of the backings – which often show a righteous side of the group that's mighty surprising! The record's one that just grows and grows with each new listening, and is put together with some great sharp-edged production by Jerry Peters – who has a way of showcasing all the most interesting elements, while still keeping things focused too. Titles include the classic "Wake Up & Be Somebody" and "Loving You Is Really My Game" – plus "Waiting For Someone", "We Know A Place", "Hangin' On", "Easy Thangs", and "This Must Be Heaven".

Peabo Bryson & Roberta FlackBorn To Love ... LP
Capitol, 1983. Very Good+ ... $4.99
The beautiful full scale duets set from Peabo Bryson and Roberta Flack – a record that's no doubt defined by it's biggest hit – but the rest is just as great! Born To Love kicks off with "Tonight I Celebrate My Love For You" – a song that's doubtlessly one of the most inescapable slow dance classics ever – and if its ubiquity overshadows the rest of the record, that's not because it's any less excellent! Peabo's affectionate style is in top form here, and Roberta is such a perfect duet partner – with plenty of lead moments of her own. It definitely feels like a perfectly balanced partnership. The record's got some lovely slow jams on par with the aforementioned pop soul standard, plus some great ones that up the tempo a little bit. Other titles include "Blame It On Me", "Born To Love", "Heaven Above Me", "Comin' Alive", "Can We Find Love Again", "You're Looking Like Love To Me" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy CastorC ... LP
Long Distance, Early 80s. Near Mint- ... $5.99
An extremely interesting 80s album from Jimmy Castor – and not nearly as bad as you'd think! The record is proof that Jimmy was always willing to work in the music biz – changing his sound and style as the years dictated, but still retaining most of the same elements that were there in the first place. Just as his early 70s work on RCA was almost a "comeback" from his roots in 60s soul – so is this 80s album a comeback of funk in the style of those RCA albums. The record begins with a solo sax version of "The Star Spangled Banner", then rolls into an uptempo club number "Stay With Me/Stay The Night". That gives way to a funkier track called "Con Man", which then rolls into a 5 minute instrumental reading of "Stairway To Heaven", done with Jimmy's tenor sax in the lead, and a lot of guitar! Side two features two ballads, then a strange little funk number with a Japanese title that seems to be about Godzilla. The album ends with another monster number – "The Mummy" – done as a funked-up story sort of tune, with a reprise of the Troglodyte style of monologue. Not Jimmy's best, certainly – but he was definitely going all out on this one! LP, Vinyl record album

Earl ColemanEarl Coleman & The Latin Love In ... LP
Worthy, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A Latin monster – and one of our favorite albums from the New York scene! The record is the only one we've ever seen from pianist Earl Coleman – and it's a groove-happy fiesta that's every bit Spanish Harlem at its best. Earl's piano is flowing and free, and the band grooves through tracks that dip, turn, and soar like some of the best hard-jamming numbers from Joe Cuba, Ray Barretto, or Joe Bataan from the time. Some tracks feature soulful English vocals, and the titles alone should give you the feel of the set – "Hippy Heaven", "Latin Love-In", "Banana-Loo", and "What You Gonna Do". LP, Vinyl record album

CommodoresCommodores ... LP
Motown, 1977. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Not The Commodores first album – but a really that really broke them out of the box and exposed the group to a huge new audience! The album hits perfectly on both sides of the group's strengths – the tight ensemble funk on which they were raised, and some of the sweeter aspects that were showing up as Lionel Richie emerged as the solo male singing star – not nearly as cheesy here as in later years, and a surprisingly nice element to offset the heavier funk. Titles include the funky classic "Brick House", the mellow hit "Easy", and the cuts "Squeeze The Fruit", "Zoom", "Funky Situation", "Won't You Come Dance With Me", "Funny Feelings", "Heaven Knows", and "Patch It Up".

A fantastic record from one of the first great female voices in Jamaican music – the completely righteous Phyllis Dillon, a singer who set a whole new standard for the genre! The tunes here are beautiful rocksteady numbers – a number of which just have bass, drums, and organ stepping along behind Dillon's powerful lead. A few others change up the rhythms a bit, but Phyllis holds the whole thing together nicely – both on original material, and transformative versions of other tunes from the time. Titles include "One Life To Live", "Love The One You With", "I Can't Forget About You Baby", "Woman Ghetto", "Close To You", "We Belong Together", "You Are Like Heaven To Me", and "Long Time No Nice Time".

DramaticsShake It Well ... LP
ABC, 1977. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Incredibly great work from The Dramatics – the kind of record that hits on all burners instantly, and just keeps on cooking all the way through! The set kicks off with the title funky cut "Shake It Well" – done in a mode that the group handle surprisingly well, thanks to some excellent vocals. These vocals only get better on following tracks, though – as the group kicks back, relaxes, and stretches into some amazing mellow tunes that rank with some of the best harmony soul of the late 70s! Part of the magic of the set is thanks to producer Don Davis – who had a hand in all of the best cuts, using that mix of rough and sweet that was always the best side of his 70s sound. Titles include "Come Inside", "Spaced Out Over You", "That Heaven Kind Of Feeling", "Ocean Of Thoughts & Dreams", "You Make The Music", "I Like Makin You So Happy", and "Music Is Forever".

Bob DylanTime Out Of Mind (20th anniversary pressing – with bonus 7 inch single) ... LP
Columbia, 1997. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $24.99 29.98
A critical comeback album for Dylan – who never really went away, he was just floundering a bit commercially and critically for a number of years – one that set him up to ride high again for years to come! This is his second album working with producer Daniel Lanois, who helmed the pretty excellent Oh Mercy a few years earlier. Lanois's trademark haze and mood hover over Dylan and his band's wonderful take on timeless folk-blues-roots rock and some of his best, most forthright lyricism since Blood On The Tracks. Wrestling with mortality, Dylan delivers a late career classic. Includes "Love Sick", "Dirt Road Blues", "Standing In The Doorway", "Million Miles", "Trying To Get To Heaven", "Til I Fell In Love With You", "Not Dark Yet", "Cold Irons Bound", "Can't Wait", "Make You Feel My Live" and the seemingly improvised, old school Dylan-styled (if more meandering) "Highlands".

Five SpecialSpecial Edition ... LP
Elektra, 1980. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Classic funky soul from Five Special – tightly crafted throughout, and clearly with an eye on the charts – but also the kind of work that plays nicely on the dancefloor too! The record's got a groove that fits in nicely with some of the lesser-remembered groovers on Elektra at the time – like Shadow or Chameleon – with plenty of jazzy inflections in the rhythms, and a nice sense of 80s groove that keeps the uptempo tracks from being just copycat club. But the vocals here are especially nice, and sparkle even more on the ballads, which have a smooth and warm sound that's tight, yet never commercially cloying. Titles include "Do Something Special", "Heaven", "Who You Been Lovin", "Jam", "Choosin You For Me", and "Had You A Lover". LP, Vinyl record album

Virgin, 1990. Very Good ... $8.99
The first album from Donny Hathaway's soulful daughter – an album that we initially approached with a bit of reservation, but were surprised to find out we liked so much! Lalah's got a nearly-classic style in her work that's a fresh departure from many other soul acts of this period – a style that's almost influenced by the Soul II Soul or Loose Ends groove of the time, but is a bit more mainstream – and which shows that Hathaway has a lot more to offer than a famous last name. Production and arrangements are by Gary Taylor, Angela Winbush, Craig T Cooper, and Andre Fischer – and titles include "Baby Don't Cry", "Heaven Knows", "Somethin", "Stay Home Tonight", "I'm Coming Back", "I Gotta Move On", and "Obvious".

Leroy HutsonCloser To The Source ... LP
Curtom/Acid Jazz (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... About May 11, 2018
One of the greatest albums ever by Chicago soul maestro Leroy Hutson – a masterpiece of soul, sophistication, and downright good vibes – all put together at a level that makes it one of our favorite albums of the 70s! The set was recorded hot on the heels of the massive Hutson and Hutson II albums – and is done in a very similar style – with Leroy pushing 70s mellow soul to new heights through his masterful vocals, arrangements, and production – completely his own man, and towering at a level that should have made him as huge as Marvin Gaye, Leon Ware, or Roy Ayers. The album's incredibly tight, but never slick – a brilliant statement of soul that's gentle one moment, forceful the next – and always proud and powerful. Titles include "Closer to The Source", "Heaven Right Here On Earth", "Get To This (You'll Get To Me)", "You're A Winner", "Everybody's A Masterpiece", and "Where Did Love Go". LP, Vinyl record album

Like the preceding album from the team, the pairing's a great one – and the Jacksons' pop soul harmonies match up very nicely with the full, rich sound of the Philly groove! Titles include "Music's Takin' Over", "Goin' Places", "Different Kind Of Lady", "Even Though You're Gone", "Jump For Joy", "Heaven Knows I Love You, Girl", "Man Of War", "Do What You Wanna", and "Find Me A Girl".

Johnson Spiritual SingersDon't Let The Devil Ride ... LP
Detroit Gospel Reissue Project, Mid 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
Totally wonderful work from this obscure Detroit group – a quintet of very young gospel singers, and one that gets some wicked work on electric guitar as well! The music has a vibe that's every bit what you'd expect from the cover – very raw, and at-home – with that guy on his knees laying down some bluesy guitar licks on just about every track, really helping the energy of the younger voices to soar! The lyrical themes are spiritual, but the delivery is maybe far grittier than any of the hippest funky 45 soul of the time – on titles that include "It's Going To Rain", "Don't Let The Devil Ride", "Precious Lord", "Jesus Met The Woman At The Well", "Running For Jesus", "I Believe There's A Heaven Somewhere", and "This Train".
