8th DayShe's Not Just Another Woman/I Can't Fool Myself ... 7-inch
Invictus, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Classic work from 8th Day – working here in 2 different modes! "She's Not Just" is a funky soul tune – heavy on the downbeats, in that early 70s Holland-Dozier-Holland mode. "I Can't Fool Myself" is more of a soulful ballad, with good lyrics by General Johnson and Greg Perry. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(In an Invictus sleeve.)

Glass HouseInside The Glass House ... CD
Invictus/P-Vine (Japan), 1971. Used ... $9.99
A great album by one of lost groups on the Invictus label! Glass House were a stellar male/female vocal group with a good deep soul sound – very much in the spirit of other Invictus albums of the era, with a tremendous feel for down home, gritty soul but executed with the smooth HDH vibe. Ronald Dunbar handled all of the production for Holland-Dozier-Holland, and he also wrote most of the tracks. Cuts include "You Ain't Livin' Unless You're Lovin", "Crumbs Off The Table", "Heaven Is There To Guide Us", and "I Surrendered". CD

Isley BrothersThis Old Heart Of Mine (50th anniversary – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Tamla, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
The Isley Brothers on Motown – a really key step forward for the group, who find a whole new level of soul with help from the Holland Dozier Holland team! There's a warmth here missing from previous Isleys material – that rough edge that was more part of their rocking years, softened a bit to let the vocals really take off with straightforward power – that mix of raw energy and sublime precision they'd explore later on the T-Neck years – helped strongly here by the Motown influence. Titles include the massive hit "This Old Heart Of Mine", plus "Take Some Time Out for Love", "Baby Don't You Do It", "Nowhere To Run", "Put Yourself In My Place", "Seek & You Shall Find", and "Who Could Ever Doubt My Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram pressing – which oddly replicates the cover art for the UK version of the 60s!)

Ronn MatlockLove City ... LP
Cotillion, 1979. Very Good ... $14.99
The one and only album from Detroit underground legend Ronn Matlock – but a modern soul classic through and through! By the time of this late 70s set, Matlock had spent nearly a decade working under Motor Town legends like Norman Whitfield and the Holland-Dozier-Holland team – and he emerges here fully formed as a wonderful soul songwriter with a really mature approach to his music! The album's more mellow soul than the uptempo disco you might expect for the time – and Matlock's very much in the spirit of Leroy Hutson or Leon Ware here – hitting gentle grooves that are never too sleepy, and which come off with a really mature, sophisticated feel. Production and arrangements are by Michael Stokes, but we're guessing that it's Matlock's talents that are still the main guiding light on the set – and titles include the sublime stepper "I Can't Forget About You", plus "Take Me to the Top (Of Your Mountain)", ""Back Street", and "You Got the Best of Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the original lyric sleeve. Cover has a promo stamp, some wear, and a tracklist sticker.)

Jimmy RuffinRuff 'N Ready ... CD
SOUL/Reel Music, 1969. Used ... $9.99
A tremendous little album from Jimmy Ruffin – as "ruff" as the title implies, with a much deeper groove than you might find from other Motown releases at the time! The style here is really wonderful – rich, heartfelt vocals from Jimmy that easily match the best of the Detroit underground of the time – a style that's a bit like Darrell Banks or JJ Barnes, with echoes of the southern sound of the 60s – but produced to perfection with all the best that Motown could muster! Jimmy gets lots of heavy help from Norman Whitfield – who produced about half the tracks on the set, and gives Ruffin a sound that's somewhere between his righteous soul with the Temptations, and the best Motown grooves of his earlier work for the label. Other production is by Brian Holland & Lamont Dozier, William Weatherspoon & James Dean, and Richard Morris – all of whom follow Whitfield's lead nicely – and although the album's got few runaway hits, it's a rock-solid effort throughout – just the kind of album that makes us love the Motown full-length scene even more than the label's singles! Titles include "Lonely Lonely Man Am I", "It's Wonderful (To Be Loved By You)", "Don't Let Him Take Your Love From Me", "Everybody Needs Love", "Sad & Lonesome Feeling", "Love Gives Love Takes Away", and "Farewell Is A Lonely Sound". Great reissue package too – with excellent sound, very detailed notes, and some great vintage images! CD

VariousPhil's Spectre – A Wall Of Soundalikes ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... About August 1, 2016
That's not a typo in the title – the compilation's a collection of tracks that all bear the mark of Phil Spector – Spector's Spectres, if you will! It's a well known fact that Phil had a monumental impact on 60s rock, pop, and soul music – as his "wall of sound" production style forever transformed the sound of the single back in the sixties. And although there's been lots of compilations that focus on Phil's own work, this is the first one we've seen to showcase his proteges and contemporaries – a surprisingly wide range of studio talents who all picked up on Phil's tricks and twists! The tunes on the set include some great 60s soul and pop numbers, and a bunch of the tracks are reissued legally here for the first time. Plus, the set's got some wonderful liner notes – really taking you through the tracks, and explaining the connection to Spector and the overall sound of the music. Features production work by Nick DeCaro, Van McCoy, Jan Davis, Abner Spector, Brian Holland & Lamont Dozier, Brian Wilson, Sonny Bono, and Jack Nitszche – and titles that include "When You Walk In The Room" by Jackie DeShannon, "When The Boy's Happy" by The Four Pennies, "Hang On" by The Wall Of Sound, "Tremblin" by Gene Pitney, "A Little Love" by Alder Ray, "On The Spanish Side" by The Corsairs & Landy McNeil, "Why Do Fools Fall In Love" by The Beach Boys, "Just You" by Sonny & Cher, "I Can't Make It Alone" by PJ Proby, "And That Reminds Me" by The Dolls, "You're So Fine" by Dorothy Berry, "Missing My Baby" by Clydie King, and "I Just Couldn't Say" by Lorraine & The Delights.

✨✧ Jackson 5ABC ... LP
Motown, 1970. Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A seminal step forward for this legendary group – easily one of the greatest albums they ever cut! With ABC, the Jacksons are expanding their sound with the club-oriented grooves of the time – using Holland, Dozier, and Holland on many cuts, trying for a similar soaring groove as some of the trio's work on their own Invictus label. The move's actually a great one – as the maturing group has a strong adult harmony sound, the one that they would lean on more heavily during their years as The Jacksons, and which calls for much smoother arrangements than before. The record's got a surprisingly righteous, joyous sort of sound – and titles include "The Love You Save", "ABC", "One More Chance", "Never Had A Dream Come True", "I'll Bet You", "I Found That Girl", "La-La Means I Love You", "2-4-6-8", and "The You Folks". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Eddie KendricksLove Keys ... LP
Atlantic, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked solo gem from Eddie Kendricks – recorded at a time when he was years past his solo Motown fame, but still burning strong on Atlantic Records! The set was recorded down in Alabama, and gives Eddie a slightly different setting – one that unlocks some really rich aspects of his vocals, but also keeps things in a mature, modern mode as well! The Controllers provide vocal support, and the Muscle Shoals Horns add in some musical flourishes as well – but Kendricks is still the main charm of the album, as his vocals crackle wonderfully on well-penned tunes by 70s soul maestros like Lou Courtney, Ronn Mattlock, and the team of Holland Dozier Holland. There's a new groove that's a real shift from the boogie of Eddie's 70s albums – a nice groove that sounds especially great on the midtempo numbers. Titles include "Looking For Love", "I'm In Need Of Love", "I Don't Need Nobody Else", "I Need Your Lovin", and "In Love We're One". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo stamp and tracklist sticker.)

✨✧ MarvelettesPlayboy ... LP
Tamla, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunning early album from one of Motown's first great groups – served up here in a cover that's as graphically intense as the music within! The record's got a great mix of older sad-tinged vocal styles with some of the new pride and power the Marvelettes helped unlock at Motown – a great mix of modes that really gives the album a rock-solid quality all the way through – thanks also to a whole host of great compositions by Berry Gordy and the Holland/Dozier/Holland team! Titles include "Playboy", "Someday, Someday", "Goddess Of Love", "You Should Know", and "I'm Hooked". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original white label pressing with blue globes! This copy was sealed, but opened to determine pressing, and remains unplayed. Cover has a small cutout hole.)

✨✧ Dionne WarwickJust Being Myself ... LP
Warner, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
While the title may claim that Dionne Warwick is "Just Being Myself", the sound of the set is something completely different – a surprisingly great album that has the lady working with the post-Motown production team of Holland-Dozier-Holland! There's a quality here that resonates strongly from the very first note – a bold move away from Bacharach to some of the more adult soul modes explored in the 70s – handled by HDH with full-on backings on some numbers, but with a more gentle Warwick-styled groove on others. The album's got a depth we never would have expected – especially from the slightly-soppy cover – and Dionne's manage to bring in all the strengths from earlier years, yet also recast them a bit with a fuller soul-based groove on the set. The album features the surprisingly funky "I'm Just Being Myself", which has some great sinister flute over skittish drums – plus the tracks "You're Gonna Need Me", "Come Back", "Don't Burn The Bridge", "Don't Let My Teardrops Bother You", and "I Think You Need Love".
