Oscar Brown Jr.Between Heaven & Hell ... LP
Columbia, 1962. Good+ ... $2.99
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

Deep JazzHeaven & Earth ... LP
Perfect Toy (Germany), 2009. New Copy ... $11.99
An album that's every bit as hip as you'd expect from its Sam Rivers-inspired cover image – a beautiful tribute to the modal jazz scene of the 60s, particularly the work of John Coltrane and some of his followers on Impulse Records! Apart from a cover of "Naima", though, the set's hardly a simple rehash of Coltrane modes – as all other tunes are originals, and the band delivers them with a core piano trio groove, then adds in flute, tenor, and soprano sax on different tracks! Rhythm is at the heart of the record, and bassist/leader Jerker Kluge really moves the group with a pulsating sound on his instrument – a deep, soulful tone that's matched beautifully by the brightly soaring piano lines of Jo Junghanss. A few cuts feature vocals by Julia Fehenberger, who further deepens the soul of the record – and the whole thing's a massive killer – like finding some lost Saba/MPS gem from the late 60s, with all the European jazz genius you'd expect from such a reference. Titles include "Heaven & Earth", "Naima", "Orange Flower", "Red Smoke", "Starlings Talk", and "Black Tiger". LP, Vinyl record album

Heaven & EarthHeaven & Earth ... LP
Mercury, 1978. Very Good ... $7.99
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

Washington PhillipsWhat Are They Doing In Heaven Today? ... LP
Mississippi, 1920s/1930s. New Copy ... $11.99
Very early gospel work from Washington Phillips – a spiritual singer, but one who works in a style that's a lot more blues-based than later proponents of the genre! The style here is relatively spare – mostly just Washington's vocals and a bit of guitar or piano – the latter of which has the small-voiced sound of the instrument in the image on the cover – which leaves a lot more room for the vocals! Phillips inflects most of the lyrics with a definite blues-based sensibility, too – which brings plenty of secular feel to the music – and titles include "Denomination Blues (parts 1 & 2)", "Train Your Child", "Paul & Silas In Jail", "I Was Born To Preach The Gospel", and "What Are They Doing In Heaven Today".

Reality, 1978. Near Mint- ... $699.99
A cool 70s psychedelia set from Rick Saucedo – a rare one, made in the years before he became much more famous as one of the world's most renowned Elvis impersonators! Rick is a fascinating fella, and this totally credible, and nicely raw set is a far cry from The King. Titles include "Reality", "In My Mind", "Country Shakin, History Makin", "Ka Mon W're Gonna Rock All Night Long", and the side long title track. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousMusic From Planet Earth Vol 2 – Aliens, Teenie Weenie Men, Moonbeams, & The Gayway To Heaven (10 inch vinyl pressing) ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $23.99
Music from outer space, but sounds with an origin on planet earth – all recorded during that late 50s/early 60s stretch when so many folks were experimenting with new modes of expression in the studio! The tracks here are a mix of rockers and more offbeat instrumental ones – great postwar space-age stuff from the time when rockets were first cresting over the horizon – inspiring musicians to make new sounds for the coming age of exploration. Guitars collide with theremin, percussion, atonal strings, electronics, and more – and titles include "Into Space" by Russ Garcia, "Mist O The Moon" by Dr Samuel J Hoffman, "Hey Moon" by Carl & The Spindletoppers, "Rocking Chair On The Moon" by Rusty Wellington, "Moonshot" by Joe & Rose Lee Maphis, "Gayway To Heaven" by Attilio Mineo, "The Alient Planet" by Jean Jacques Perry, "Teenie Weenie Man" by Danny Wheeler, and "Rocking To Telstar" by Cees & His Skyliners.

New Miles DavisSeven Steps To Heaven ... LP
Columbia, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

New Heaven & EarthRefuge ... LP
Ovation/Lion, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful early 70s psych folk set from the angelic vocal and songwriting duo of Pat Gefell and Jo D Andrews – their Refuge album for Ovation in 1973 – highlighted by their gorgeous vocals, but committed with lovely, lightly soaring arrangements! Save for a solid cover of the Elton John/Bernie Taupin penned "Sixty Years On", Gefell and Andrews wrote the songs here, and it's remarkably strong stuff! The duo vocals and harmonies are especially sweet. The Chicago-based production wisely leaves ample space in the arrangements for them to sort of loosely, emotively embellish with their voices – with string arrangements by co-producer George Andrews and an impressive roster of session players including bassist Phil Upchurch, drummer Don Simmons and percussionist Bobby Christian. Includes "Jenny", "Voice In The Wind", "To A Flame", "Tomorrow Is A Long Time", "Refuge", "Song For Craig", "A Light Is Shining", "Feel The Spirit" and more. Heavy vinyl and cover – and features a great insert with notes! LP, Vinyl record album

New Teddy PendergrassHeaven Only Knows ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Teddy Pendergrass' last album for Philly International – showcasing a warmer Teddy than ever before – one who glides along with a majestic, mature approach to his music – in a way that shows that Pendergrass was as good an interpreter of ballads and mellow cuts as he formerly was of more club-driven tunes. A few tracks on the album still hit a nice midtempo groove, but there's a mellower feel here overall – one that has the aging Teddy setting a sound that other singers would steal heavily in the decade to come. Titles include "Just Because You're Mine", "Crazy About Your Love", "Judge For Yourself", "Life Is For Living", "Heaven Only Knows", and "Don't Ever Stop". LP, Vinyl record album

New Stevie WoodsTake Me To Your Heaven ... LP
Cotillion, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
The first album from Stevie Woods, and one of just a few records ever by the early 80s soul groover as a headliner! It's made up of sweet mid tempo cuts, slightly spacier keys & percussion flavored numbers, slow jams with string accents and more – really nice stuff all around! Stevie's a charismatic singer, and this is well tailored, nicely produced and easygoing work. We're surprised Stevie didn't have more years in the limelight! Includes "Fly Away", "Just Can't Win 'Em All", "Take Me To Your Heaven", "Steal The Night", "Through The Years", "Wanna Be Close To You", "Read Between The Lines", "Throw A Little Bit Of Love My Way" and "Gotcha".

New DonovanWear Your Love Like Heaven (mono pressing) ... LP
Epic/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of Donovan's greatest albums – and in the original mono mix, too! Wear Your Love Like Heaven is a perfect blend of pop psychedelia – complicated little songs that sum more in a short space than some of Donovan's contemporaries could do in a single album side. Nearly every cut on here is a tiny little 3 minute gem – with a sunny and accessible psych folk vibe – but that doesn't overshadow the deeper, more complex and adventurous arrangements underneath. Classic! Tunes include "There Was A Time", "Sun", "The Land Of Doesn't Have To Be", "Wear Your Love Like Heaven", "Little Boy In Corduroy", and "Mad John's Escape". LP, Vinyl record album

AfterbachMatinee ... LP
Columbia, 1981. Very Good ... $19.99
A distant star in the Earth Wind & Fire galaxy – and the only album by this sweetly grooving group that owed a lot to the EWF sound! The record's produced by Verdine White, executive produced by Maurice White, and even features a bit of guest vocals by Philip Bailey – and the overall style is sort of in a bouncy 80s groove mode, with a mix of jazzy touches, and warmer instrumentation than you might usually hear on this sort of set. The sound's a lot leaner than Earth Wind & Fire – but carries some of the best modern soul influences of the massive group, and certainly shows some of the best influences of both White and Bailey. Titles include "Ladies Of The 80s", "Wanna Fill You Up", "I Thank Heaven", "It's You", "Wrap It Up", and "Me Myself & I". LP, Vinyl record album

AliveCall It Jazz ... LP
Redwood, 1981. Near Mint- ... $11.99
The second album by this excellent all-female San Francisco jazz combo – a live date that's even more cooking than their debut! As before, there's a sweetly breezy style to the record – that hip SF sound of the 70s – with echoes of Braziliana and soul amidst the group's jazzier leanings – all wrapped together with a sound that's tight, but never uptight! The female vocals give the music a feel that's like Janet Lawson, Sheila Landis, or some of the hipper European singers of the 70s – and instrumentation is mostly acoustic, save for a bit of Fender Rhodes. Titles include a version of Gil Scott-Heron's "Willing", plus "Greeting Song", "Call It Jazz", "Too Bad", "Golden River/Golden Dream", and "Heaven Is In Your Mind". LP, Vinyl record album

Patti AustinEnd Of A Rainbow ... LP
CTI, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
Wonderfully warm soul from the great Patti Austin – a key artist in the late 70s, and one who really helped push the music forward with a new sense of sophistication! Patti's got a strongly jazzy vibe here – and works with David Matthews arrangements that are really well put-together – less funky than some of Dave's other work of the period, and filled with these mellow moments that really let Austin's energy flow! The overall feel is a bit like some of Jean Carn's work on Philly International – hip, sophisticated, and filled with plenty of jazz touches – although with an even stronger approach to ballads – and titles include the classic "This Side Of Heaven", plus "More Today Than Yesterday", "Say You Love Me", "In My Life", "Give It Time", and "What's At The End Of A Rainbow".

Beach BoysFriends ... LP
Capitol, 1968. Very Good- ... $14.99
An under-discovered album from The Beach Boys – and one of our favorite records by the group! The set's kind of a slinking back to the personal, quirky territory of Smile, but with a somewhat more intimate, less-ambitious feel – one that comes off like a tapestry of simple expressions from the group – surprisingly heartfelt at times, fragile at others, and always with a soul-bearing quality that's really wonderful. This one's light years from their surfer pop of a few years before – even a strong maturation from the Pet Sounds set of just two years back – and the harmonies really have the group hitting new strides – hardly a copycat of earlier male group modes, pure harmony heaven for the late 60s! The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include "Friends", "Transcendental Meditation", "Anna Lee The Healer", "Wake The World", "Meant For You", "Busy Doing Nothin", "Little Bird", "Be Here in the Mornin'", and "Diamond Head".

A sparkling set from Les Brown & His Band Of Reknown! A mid 50s session that features mostly older numbers from the 30s and 40s, retooled a bit for the new decade, yet still very much in a swing-based mode! There's some hip instrumental touches in the charts that definitely update the music nicely – horn flourishes that you'd never hear a decade before, recorded with high quality Hollywood fidelity for the date. Titles include "Stardust", "Sleepy Time Gal", "Swingin Down The Lane", "My Blue Heaven", "I Never Knew", and "Cecilia". LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1983. Near Mint- ... $1.99
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

A second dose of solo weirdness from Peter Buck – who's best known, of course, as guitarist and co-founder of REM – but he's also done cool and interesting stuff with the Minus Five, The Baseball Project and more in the post REM years – and we admire the heck of his freewheeling solo stuff, too! This one's filled with skronky blues rockers and poetic acoustic tunes alike, with lots of dissonant guitars and unpredictable twists and turns. Other players include Scott McCaughey and other frequent collaborators and special guests. Includes "Ride That Road", "My Slobbering Decline", "Life Is Short", "Southerner", "Here In Heaven", "(You Must Fight To Live) On The Planet Of The Apes", "Welcome To The Party", "Drown With Me", "West Of Sunset", "Roswell" and more.

New ChangeSharing Your Love ... LP
Atlantic, 1982. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Sweet modern soul from this great group – one of the brightest points in major label soul during the early 80s! Change, ironically, is a group that went through a number of line-up changes, even in their prime – with the tight, clubby, yet geniunely soulful production a constant. This record is made all the better for the beautifully soulful dual lead vocals of James Robinson and Deborah Cooper. The tracks have deeply layered live instrumentation – keyboards, guitar, percussion, horns and strings – blended seamlessly with early 80s production touches. Includes the hits "The Very Best In You" and "Hard Times (It's Gonna Be Alright)", and others that are just as sweet: "Take You To Heaven", "Oh What A Night", "Promise Your Love","Keep On It", "You're My Number One" and more.

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

Seminal sounds from the early years of soul music – that time when spiritual recordings had a strong influence on the style of the secular world – as showcased in the album's cover shot of the great Sam Cooke! The collection brings together some of Sam's gospel recordings alongside work by two other groups who were more spiritual overall – The Gospel Harmonettes and The Blind Boys – both great vocal groups who really show how much the gospel harmony style went onto influence soul groups for the 60s. The package is great – and really gets at the roots of Cooke's legendary sound – and titles include "I Thank God", "Deep River", "That's Heaven To Me", and "Steal Away" by Sam; plus "Jericho Walls, "Love Lifted Me", and "Trust & Obey" by Gospel Harmonettes; and "Oh Lord Fix It", "This Friend Jesus", and "You Got To Move" by The Blind Boys.

A brilliant full-length statement from Mark De Clive-Lowe – an artist who's been making some big waves in the global underground for the past few years – including a range of singles and remixes so great, we can almost forgive him for the length of his name! The set's everything we could have hoped for from Mark – a swirling, cosmic set that effortlessly blends together beats, keys, and a bit of vocals – yet which manages to come off with a complexity that goes far beyond the sum of its parts. Mark recorded the album in London and Auckland – but there's a deeper soul here that almost feels like part of the best side of the Detroit 21st Century scene – especially on the album's excellent vocal numbers! Guest appearances include Bembe Segue, Abdul Syllon, Capitol A, and Lain – and titles include "Traveling", "Quintessential", "Masina's World", "Slide", "State Of The Mental", "Sila's Theme", "Heaven", and "4 YV".

8th DayI Gotta Get Home (Can't Let My Baby Get Lonely) ... LP
Invictus, 1973. Very Good- ... $24.99
A bit confused at points, but one of the funkiest albums on Invictus! The 8th Day group was a loosely conceived batch of Detroit soul talents designed to cash in on a concept of the Holland-Dozier-Holland team – but fortunately, they also included some wonderful talents that could make some great music when they wanted to. One of these was the vastly under-discovered Detroit organist Lyman Woodard –who contributed the fantastic track "Cheba" to the album, an incredible organ groover that's unlike anything you've ever heard, rolling on with this pinched Hammond sound over congas, all-instrumental, and completely seductive! Another was Melvin Davis, who had recorded the song "Good Book" as a solo artist – but which was released here as if it was by the group. There's also a great guitarist in the group – unnamed due to the lack of liner notes – but who really shines on the funky tracks "Anythang", "Rocks In My Head", and "Heaven Is There To Guide Us", all with a fuzzed-out Detroit 70s groove!

Mercury, 1975. Very Good ... $11.99
An incredible fusion of all the greatness that was going on in the Bay Area scene of the 70s – put together by Coke Escovedo – the brother of Pete and Sheila E, former leader of Azteca, and onetime member of Santana! Yet this set sounds like none of that previous work at all – and instead is great grooving soul, infused both with the sophistication of fusion and some of the Latin elements of Escovedo's roots – all produced to perfection by Patrick Gleeson – who most folks know for his own spacey keyboard work with Bennie Maupin and others! The mix of elements going on is really complex, but comes across with effortless ease – one of those rare fusions that could happen at a bigger label when all the right talents were brought together. The record kind of "out-Fantasys" the best of Fantasy Records in the Bay Area at the time – and makes great use of singers Linda and Calvin Tillery, plus the great Harvey Mason on drums. Titles include wonderful covers of Lamont Dozier's "Why Can't We Be Lovers" and Leon Ware's "If I Ever Lose This Heaven" – plus the tracks "What Are You Under", "No One To Depend On", "Easy Come Easy Go", and "Make It Sweet".

Elektra, 1980. Very Good ... $4.99
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

Fantastic stuff – and one of the greatest albums ever by Chicago soul maestro Leroy Hutson! 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. The album's incredibly polished, 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", "Everbody's A Masterpiece", and "Where Did Love Go". LP, Vinyl record album
