Eloise Greenfield with Byron MorrisHoney I Love (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Honey Productions/Shout (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $19.99
Quite a groovy little record from writer Eloise Greenfield – done in a unique style that has the poet interacting with a set of children throughout – who sing and recite both lyrics and poetry, with this honest approach that almost recalls some of the hipper jazz/poetry projects on Folkway Records, or classic albums from Langston Hughes! The music is a big part of the album's success – as it's handled by the great Byron Morris, who shifts a bit from his own modal jazz and really creates some amazingly sensitive backdrops throughout. The vibe's a bit like a Bill Lee project from the same period – but with even more variety – and titles include the instrumental numbers "In My Father's Music House" and "Eyewitness News Bluze" – plus "I Look Pretty", "Honey I Love", "Moochie", "Rope Rhyme", and "Way Down In The Music".

Hi Fly OrchestraMo Slow/Sweet Honey Bee ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), 2006. New Copy ... $7.99
Leave it to Tramp Records to make our turntable happy – because both cuts here are totally great! "Mo Slow" is a snapping little jazz number that feels like it was lifted from a mid 60s Lee Morgan album – less the deep funk that the label first gave us years back – and more a soul jazz tune with a great sense of rhythm, and wonderful interplay between trumpet and tenor sax! Not surprisingly, the flipside is a great remake of Duke Pearson's "Sweet Honey Bee" – penned around the same stretch – and done here with a slow-loping flute line that's really great! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Honey ConeSweet Replies ... LP
Hot Wax, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $6.99
The second album by Honey Cone – and the one that really broke them out of the box! The record's got a groove that gets going right from the start – a sense of upbeat, soulful energy that really shows why the Honey Cone approach was so different than most of the girl groups who came before them – a groovier, more righteous style that shows that the ladies are very much in charge – and able to send things over the top with their unified energy! Production is great – very rumbling and bold, which further helps the groove – and titles include the huge hit "Want Ads" – a pre-disco cut that pointed the way towards future female soul groups of the mid 70s – plus "Deaf Blind Paralyzed", "Sunday Morning People", "My Mind's On Leaving", "We Belong Together", and "Blessed Be Our Love LP, Vinyl record album

Vinyl Mania/Get On Down, 1986. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 17.98
A spare clubby classic from the hands of Larry Levan – a cut that was carve at the same time that Chicago house was really taking off, but in a groove that's nicely different from the Windy City sound! There's definitely that spare vibe here that you'd know from house – especially in the moody keyboard line and edgey beats – but there's also some echoes of an earlier NYC club element, but stripped down to the core! The instrumental mix is especially wild – very stark and spooky. 12-inch, Vinyl record

A nice little sleeper from Jimmy – a record that's hiding behind a title and cover that looks pretty corny, but one that features McGriff wailing away on a nice set of shorter tunes, most of which are 60s soul covers, done in that lean clean style he was using a lot at the time! Forget the "Honey" and go for "I Thank You", "I Got The Feelin", "Tell Mama", "We're A Winner", "Respect", and "Chain Of Fools" – all of which are quite nice! LP, Vinyl record album

Lenny WelchTaste Of Honey – The Complete Cadence Recordings 1959 to 1964 ... CD
Cadence/Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The complete Cadence recordings of the wonderful Lenny Welch – a singer with a voice that's as smooth as butter, and a key link between some of the more pop-oriented vocalists of the 50s, and the new generation of 60s "icemen" like Jerry Butler and Chuck Jackson! Like those two, Lenny's got a great way of putting over a sad tune with just the right balance of emotion – never too overdone, nor self-indulgent – but perfectly poised with a nicely mature quality. And Lenny's also a great singer on a more upbeat number – a surprisingly rocking vocalist when he wants to be, as you'll hear on some of the more groove-oriented titles on this set – tunes that have a classy early soul approach, one that's almost a bit like uptown soul of a few years later. The package features 20 tracks in all – singles recorded by Welch for Cadence, with titles that include "Changa Rock", "Mama Don't You Hit That Boy", "You Don't Know Me", "I Need Someone", "Darlin", "Three Handed Woman", "You Can Have Her", "Father Sebastian", "If You See My Love", "Are You Sincere", and "Congratulations Baby".

Capitol, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A back-to-basics album of sorts – shorter, catchier songs recorded by the group after the collapse of Smile – but a record that still has some really wonderful moments overall – and which shows that The Beach Boys would never be the same after Pet Sounds! There's a mix of older rock themes and new adult ones here – sung by a group who's really growing into their emotions, and approaching things from new directions than in the past. Heartbreak and happiness are both center stage here – often at the same time – and titles include a great remake of Stevie Wonder's "I Was Made To Love Her", the haunting "Let The Wind Blow", the hippie-esque "Country Air", and lots more nice ones like "Wild Honey", "Aren't You Glad", "A Thing Or Two", "How She Boogalooed It", "Here Comes The Night", and "Mama Says".

Fantasy/Honey, 1980. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Although Marsha Wash and Izora Armstead later metamorphosed into the too-silly Weather Girls later in the 80s, at this point in their career, they were pretty decent singers – and were being produced by Harvey Fuqua in a great style that took bits of soul, bits of disco, and forged a modern club groove that worked very nicely for their strong vocal techniques. The best tracks are pretty darn catchy – and the record's a great soul album that shouldn't be passed up, even if you're scared of their Weather Girls reputation. Titles include "Never Like This", "I Depend On You", "Can't Do It By Myself", "I Been Down", and "Your Love Is Gonna See Me Through". LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy sings some sweet Latin groovers in Spanish – backed by groovy 60s arrangements from Joe Sherman! The feel here isn't quite as driving as on her classic "Mas Que Nada" album – but it does have a similar style – sort of blending easy 60s vocals with swinging pop Latin rhythms, all in a style that's pretty darn groovy, especially on the upbeat numbers! Tracks include Spanish versions of "Yesterday", "That Kiss", "A Taste Of Honey", "Call Me", and "Shadow Of Your Smile". LP, Vinyl record album

Epic, 1969. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Rod Argent's project immediately after the breakup of the Zombies! There's plenty of Zombie-like ideas here – particularly those floating around the Odyssey and Oracle album, but they're also done without the dreamy pop style of Colin Blunstone's vocals, which makes for a much harder sound overall. Added into that the guitar of Russ Ballard, which really kicks into the tunes nicely, and you've got some great rock and roll work – written with a pop sensibility, but played with a razor-sharp edge that's pretty hard hitting. Titles include "Like Honey", "Liar", "Schoolgirl", "Bring You Joy", "Stepping Stone", and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Not one filler track this strong debut LP from one of the dopest MCs of the 90s! There's jazzy soul pedigree to the production that pairs perfectly with her rhymes, with excellent use of samples – a mode that was falling out of mainstream fashion by this point in the decade, but it's fresh as ever even now. An underrated classic! Beats by Primo, Guru, the Beatminerz, the Roots, Ski and others.

Sunflower is the kind of record that's easy to pass by when you're first getting into the group, but later on – after digging for gems on records like Wild Honey or Friends, you'll come back to it as a totally solid record, filled with loads of excellent little songs like "Slip On Through", "This Whole World", "Cool, Cool Water", "Tears In The Morning", and "Add Some Music To Your Day". The whole thing holds together better than any other post-Smile album we can think of – and it's an endless treat that we're always coming back to! LP, Vinyl record album

Black HeatBlack Heat ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good ... $39.99
A searing debut from Black Heat – one of the best funk acts to record for Atlantic during the 70s, and a tight little group with a sound that's a mixture of New Orleans funk and New York heavy! The album's got a bit of vocals – figuring in on about half the tracks – but the main focus here is definitely instrumental – with a strong emphasis on choppy guitar, sweet organ licks, and cooking horn solos on trumpet, tenor, and flute – the last two of which are played by David Newman – not normally a member of the combo, but a great guest for this session! The sound is very tight, but never slick – and often recorded with an earthiness that recalls some of the best indie label funk of the period – like the kind of grooves you might find over at Perception/Today – with all the trippiness that might imply. Titles include "Chip's Funk", "Wanoah", "Barbara's Mood", "Chicken Heads", "The Jungle", "Send My Lover Back", "Honey Love", and "Time Is Gonna Catch You". LP, Vinyl record album

John BlairWe Belong Together ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
A strange bit of soul from the later years of CTI – and one of the few albums we've ever seen from the enigmatic John Blair! Blair is an artist with a bit of a cosmic vibe – kind of a spacey sense of soul that maybe fits his appearance on the cover – and which is couched here in kind of a flanged-out rock style that's a bit different than some of the other CTI sessions of the time! D avid Matthews handled the arrangements – mixing in a bit of his funk with some fuzzier currents – and the great Googie Coppola joins John on vocals on a number of cuts, using a spacey soul style that's mighty nice. Titles include "Feather Lite & Honey Smooth", "I'm A Wizard", "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", "Moonlight Serenade", "We Belong Together", and "Don't Feel That Way No More". CD

A&M/Universal (Japan), 1971. New Copy 2CD ... $28.99
Memphis goes to California – with surprising results! The album's one of a few that Booker T cut after splitting with the MGs – of legendary Stax Records fame – and it's completely different than his earlier sides, and not in a bad way! Book recorded the set in California with wife Priscilla Jones, and it's done in a mixture of soul, rock, and folk styles – one that's as much in keeping with the Laurel Canyon or San Francisco scenes than Book's earlier work was with the Memphis ones. Booker and Priscilla both sing – sometimes together, sometimes apart – and the double-length set is pretty warm, fuzzy, and a bit trippy. Titles include "Delta Song" and "Wedding Song", both of which are standout tracks – and other titles include "She", "Funny Honey", "Medley From The Jones Ranch", and "The Sun Don't Shine". CD

BrickGood High/Brick (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Bang/Robinsongs (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
Two funky soul classics from Brick – back to back on a single CD! First up is the album Good High – a killer debut from Brick – the start of a massive run at the end of the 70s, a time when the group was easily one of the biggest acts to come out of the up-and-coming Atlanta scene! Like some other Atlanta acts of the time, Brick had a way of fusing older funky soul on a tighter modern groove – coming up with a sound that was nice and lean – perfect for these key transitional years of funk – with influences that were felt for years, in places as far away as the west coast! Case in point is the album's classic "Dazz" – one of those cuts that never gets old – nestled nicely in a lineup that also includes "Music Matic", "Here We Come", "Good High", "Brick City", and "Sister Twister". Includes two bonus tracks "Dazz (Dazz Disco mix)" & "That's What It's All About (single version)". Next up is the self-titled Brick – which has the group absolutely killing it with this self-titled second album! Brick has a feel that would be taken up heavily a few years later by LA funk combos – particularly those on the Solar label – and their style of slicking up funky licks into a tightly compressed sound was obviously a big hit with the kids of their generation. Includes the sample classic "Dusic", plus "Living From The Mind", "Happy", "Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody", "Honey Chile", Fun", "Hello" and more. This CD edition on Wounded Bird has 2 bonus tracks: "Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody (Single Version)" and "Dusic (Short Version)". CD

Warner, 2015. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
A brilliant debut for singer Andra Day! Ms. Day, as you're surely aware if you've read any of her press, is profoundly influenced by classic soul, but believe us, she's got style, confidence and a voice – wow, that voice – that truly transcends retro revivalism. This is truly one of the finer major label soul/ R&B records we've heard in a while! Andra has a way of owning the material without over-singing, and paying homage to divas past without carbon copying soul history – working with producers and studio players – from Raphael Saadiq to members of the Daptone crew – all of whom are well-suited to accompany her. We snoozed on Andra Day for months...our bad! She's the real deal. Titles include "Forever Mine", "Only Love", "Gold", "Not Today", "Mistakes", "Rearview", "Red Flags", "Honey Or Fire", "Gin & Juice (Let Go My Hand)", "Rise Up", "City Burns" and "Cheers To The Fall".

✨✧ Aretha FranklinLa Diva ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A late 70s gem from Aretha Franklin – and although a bit overlooked, a record that still shows many of the best sides of Aretha's talents for Atlantic in the decade! The main arrangements here are done by Van McCoy – and while they show a bit of a dancefloor spin, they're not as overly disco as you might expect – and instead serve mostly to buoy up Aretha's vocals with a full, rich approach to soul music – one that still lets the lady really take the lead vocally, but also get a wonderfully warm sound that helps mature things nicely. There's none of the too-commercial style of the Arista years going on here – and instead, most of these numbers have an earnest, personal feel that's really great – echoing the best modes of previous 70s albums by Franklin. Titles include "Honey I Need Your Love", "Only Star", "Reasons Why", "You Brought Me Back To Life", "Half A Love", "The Feeling", "What If I Should Ever Need You", and "Ladies Only".

Don Gardner & Dee Dee FordDon Gardner & Dee Dee Ford – Absolutely The Best ... CD
Fire/Fuel 2000, Early 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Storming soul from Don Gardner & Dee Dee Ford – one of the hardest-hitting duos of the early 60s, and a pair who set the tone for countless other acts to come! The style here is definitely soul, but steeped in plenty of R&B too – partly from Dee Dee's smoking work on Hammond, and the way her vocals come together with Don's – almost more live than any other studio work of its type – with a spontaneous vibe that always kept the Gardner/Ford singles mighty interesting! Don had worked previously with Jimmy Smith and Groove Holmes as the organist in his group – but when Dee Dee hit the mix, the sound really took off – as Gardner's rich vocals found their perfect counterpart in the energy of the young keyboardist and singer. The set's one of the best we've ever seen to bring together their work for the Fire label – with 23 tracks in all, including long and short versions of "I Need Your Loving" – plus "Tell Me", "TCB", "I Got A Notion", "Honey Sweet", "Let's Go To The Party", "You Said", "The Quicker The Better", "Bad Luck", "Does He Or Doesn't He", and "I Got A Man".
