Heaven Sent & EcstasyGreatest Love Story ... LP
Jamieko/P-Vine (Japan), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... About October 2, 2020
Heavenly soul from the start of the 80s – a sweet little indie set that's done as a tribute to Minnie Riperton and Kenneth Armstrong! The overall format doesn't have that much to do with Minnie, but the record's still pretty darn great – and the style is a mix of modern, mellow, and boogie – all served up with a real sense of earnestness that matches the cover of the album, and which makes the record stand strongly next to some of the bigger releases of the time. A number of tracks feature vocals by the lovely Pamela Morrison, and the group hails from the Oakland scene of the time – working here under the direction of Barbara J Trotter, who also wrote a good number of the titles on the set too. Titles include the dancefloor jammer "Sho Nuf Funky Beat", plus "We're Together Again", "I See Heaven", "Satisfaction To The Bone Nitty Gritty Naked Bone", "I'm A Lady", "Rapping With My Subconscious Mind", and "We're Together Again".

✨✧ KOG & The Zongo BrigadeWahala Wahala – Joy From The Struggle ... LP
Heavenly Sweetness/Pura Vida (France), 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Really driving percussion, and some great horns as well – the former served up by KOG, who also delivers some fantastic vocals on the set – the latter from The Zongo Brigade, who work in a great mix of funky rhythms, jazzy horns, and some sweet keyboards too! The set's very different than most Afro Funk albums in recent years – with an unbridled style that's clearly driven by the energy of KOG, whose expressions really have things leaping out on most tracks right from the start – then keep things warm all the way through. Titles include "For My Money", "Medowo", "Imela", "Agoro", "Mona Lisa", "Transmission", "Mad Up", "Dr Mensa", "Sahara", and "Suro Nipa". LP, Vinyl record album

Love UnlimitedFrom A Girl's Point Of View ... LP
Uni/Mercury, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 24.99
Great stuff – the beginning of the Love Unlimited dynasty! As we're sure you know, Barry White produced this little gem of a record, and the album was a key proving ground for many of his stone cold soul production ideas before he went off and started doing the lead vocals himself. The White genius is very firmly in place – and is fantastic here mixed with female lead vocals – with this strong current of soul at the bottom, sweeping strings on the top, and a surprisingly badass sound that really makes the record different than most other girl group records. The trio of lovelies that makes up Love Unlimited do a perfect job with Barry's arrangements – singing heavenly harmonies on tracks like "If This World Were Mine", "Is It Really True Boy – Is It Really Me", and the stunning "Walking In The Rain With The One I Love", which has one of the best telephone monologues you'll ever hear on a soul track!

✨✧ Viscaynes featuring Sly StoneViscaynes & Friends ... LP
ORG, Early 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Really great work from The Viscaynes – a unique mixed-race band from the northern end of the Bay Area scene at the start of the 60s – and one that provided an early launching pad for the talents of the legendary Sly Stewart! The group sound different than Sly's Family Stone, but have a similar role in soul music during their own period – male and female voices coming together with a great love of doo wop and early group soul modes, often working with arrangements by the young Stewart, who also adds in plenty of guitar to the mix as well. The tunes have much more of an east coast feel than you'd guess – very much in the best Philly street corner vibe – and titles include "You've Forgotten Me", "Help Me With My Broken Heart", "Yellow Moon", "You're My Only Love", "A Long Time Alone", "Heavenly Angel", and "Uncle Sam Needs You". Also features related tracks – "Without Success" by The Individuals, and "Eight Reasons Why" and "Mama Told Me" by The Precisions. LP, Vinyl record album
