Green FutureElectrified Rock/Honey, Rhythm & Butter ... 7-inch
Venice (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $1.99
Sweet electrified rock from Green Future – more sound library funk than the title might make you expect – with some mad funky drums underneath a tight horn line on the top – and this cool organ line that bubbles away with guitar in the middle! The trio of "Honey Rhythm & Butter" grace the flipside – which has this cool funky flute jamming over fast grooves with some sweet percussion on the bottom! 7-inch, Vinyl record

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".

David HudsonTo You HoneyHoney With Love ... CD
Alston/Warner (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
A great collection of work by singer David Hudson – a great vocalist who recorded for TK during the end of the label's hit years, and in a mode that was quite different than other artists on the Miami scene at the time! The groove here is sweet and smooth modern soul – done with a great mellow approach that clearly draws from the styles forged by Latimore for TK during the earlier part of the 70s, but which also borrows nicely from some of the work going on up north at the time. There's still some great Miami soul touches in the work – especially in the guitar lines and the way the rhythms flow out in a mellow and warm mode – but the album's also got a mature, sophisticated groove that we really love – and which is a nice contrast to the way that southern soul was changing over at the Malaco studios at the time. Titles include "I Have Never Loved A Woman", "When I'm Loving You", "Let Me Wrap You In My Love", "Scratch My Back", "Ease Up", and the hit "Honey Honey". CD

Al B SureHoney I'm Home ... CD
Hidden Beach, 2009. Used ... $5.99
Al B Sure hits the Hidden Beach label – a really surprising combination, and one that makes for some of Al's best music in years! Sure's still got that undeniably distinctive voice that first rose to pop fame at the end of the 80s – but the production here is a bit more contemporary – that crisp, beat-heavy style that Hidden Beach has brought to mainstream R&B for the past decade – a bit late in coming to Al's rescue, but with results that are mighty nice! Titles include "I Love It", "I'm Glad", "Top Of Your Lungs", "Bye The Way By The Way", "Dedicate My All", "Fragile", "4 Life", and "Whatcha Got". CD

Taste Of HoneyLadies Of The Eighties (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Big Break (UK), 1982. New Copy ... $14.99
Not the Roy Ayers' group of the same name as the title – but a killer set from Taste Of Honey – a pair of lovelies who more than lay claim to the role – given the power they lent to female soul at the start of the 80s! The album's got a killer groove throughout – loads of tight-stepping rhythms that are a great development of the Taste Of Honey sound – still all the best elements that made us fall in love with the girls during the disco generation, but a leaner, meaner approach that's mighty fresh too! Titles include "I'll Try Something New", "We've Got The Groove", "Diamond Real", "Midnight Snack", "Leavin Tomorrow", "Never Go Wrong", and "Sayonara". This Big Break UK remastered edition has 3 bonus tracks: "I'll Try Something New (Single Version)", "We've Got The Groove (Single Version)" and "I Want To Be Your Girl". CD

VariousHoney & Wine – Another Gerry Goffin & Carole King Song Collection ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. Used ... $9.99
Sublime sounds from the songwriting team of Gerry Goffin and Carole King – a tremendous little package that features some of their biggest hit singles, and a fair bit of unusual work as well! The package is the second set from Ace to feature the Goffin/King magic – and it's proof that the pair had plenty of greatness to offer back in the 60s – a never-ending flow of wonderful music, recorded here by an array of soul, rock, and pop artists of the time. The songs originally appeared on a variety of different labels, but have been collected together here – presented with tune-by-tune notes that not only tell the story of the songs, but the particular recordings as well. Titles include "A Long Way To Be Happy" by Carolyn Daye, "Honey & Wine" by The Hollies, "I Happen To Love You" by The Myddle Class, "So Goes Love" by The Turtles, "No Easy Way Down" by Nancy Wilson, "Oh No Not My Baby" by Maxine Brown, "Go Away Little Girl" by Bobby Vee, "Brand New World" by Bobby Scott, "Not Just Tomorrow But Always" by Bertell Dache, "Tell Daddy" by Ben E King, "I Need You" by Chuck Jackson, "Stage Door" by Peter James, "He Hit Me & It Felt Like A Kiss" by Jody Miller, "Don't Forget About Me" by Barbara Lewis, "Take A Giant Step" by The Rising Sons, and "Is This What I Get For Loving You" by Marianne Faithful.

Blue Note, 1966. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A classic Blue Note groover – the funkiest album by Duke Pearson, and a killer batch of piano-heavy soul jazz tunes! Duke really blew out the box for this one – not only coming up with a great batch of original tunes, and playing them with an incredibly soulful touch – but also working with a top-shelf batch of players that includes Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson, and James Spaulding! The great Mickey Roker is on drums, playing away with a nice scatter-shot modal mode that grooves in all the right parts – and titles include "Big Bertha", "Sweet Honey Bee", "Sudel", "Ready Rudy?", and "Empathy".

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", "Her Comes The Night", and "Mama Says".

West Side (UK), Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very groovy girl group soul from the beginning of the 70s! Honey & The Bees were a great Philly girl group from the same era as the early Three Degrees, or the legendary First Choice – and they were working here in a style that was slightly rougher than some of their smoother contemporaries from the city of brotherly love. The tracks have a nice soul feel – similar to work by groups like The Mirettes or The Lovelites – and the CD features all 13 tracks they recorded for Josie, most of which were only ever out on rare funky 45s! Titles include "We Got To Stay Together", "Come Get It", "Love Can Turn To Hate", "What About Me", "I'll Spend My Life Loving You", "Love Is The Key", and "Help Me (Get Over My Used To Be Lover)". CD

✨✧ Honey & The BeesDynamite! ... CD
Jamie/Guyden, Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great girl group from Philly! Honey & The Bees were a very soulful quartet, with a sound that was much more in keeping with some of their male harmony contemporaries than the usual all-girl pop group. They had a real talent for putting together a song, and the 14 tracks on this new reissue CD are the kind of late-nite harmony soul tracks that just send us reeling. Some tracks are uptempo, but we really dig the mellow ones – including "I'm Confessin", "Make You Mine", "Go Now", "I'll Be There", and "Together Forever". Other tracks include "Dynamite Exploded", "Love Addict", and "Baby, Do That Thing". CD

Hot Wax/Castle (UK), 1970s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
45 tracks of 70s girl group soul by Honey Cone – undeniably one of the strongest acts of their time! This trio of lovelies bridged the gap between the girl group sound of the 60s and the diva trio sound of the late 70s – bringing adult sophistication to a genre that had previously been a bit more kiddie-oriented, and showing that a female harmony soul approach could be just as appealing to a mainstream crossover crowd as it could to the jukebox set. The package includes all of their recordings for the Hot Wax/Invictus label – including the hits "Want Ads" (in both the long and original versions) and "Stick Up" – plus "Are You Man Enough?", "We Belong Together", "A Little More", "All The King's Horses", "VIP", "Deaf, Blind, Paralyzed", "The Day I Found Myself" (long and original versions), "The Truth Will Come Out", "I Lost My Rainbow", "Sittin On A Time Bomb", and lots more! The great fold-out booklet includes notes, discography, and photos! CD

✨✧ Honey ConeTake Me With You/Sweet Replies/Soulful Tapestry/Love Peace & Soul (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Invictus/Edsel (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Four albums, plus bonus tracks – a massive collection of work from the lovely Honey Cone trio! First up is Take Me With You – a record that has them taking the girl group sound of 60s Philly, and start to forge it with some of the fuller arrangements that would transform the genre in the disco era. Tony Camillo handled all the arrangements – in a mode that's less clubby than the girls' later work, but still with that Hot Wax groove firmly in place! Titles include "Are You Man Enough", "Take Me With You", "Girls It Ain't Easy", and "Take My Love" – plus a few groovy covers! Next is Sweet Replies – the second album by Honey Cone, and the one that broke them out of the box! The record includes the huge hit "Want Ads" – a pre-disco cut that pointed the way towards future female soul groups of the mid 70s. Other tracks are in a mode that bridges earlier 60s girl group sounds and later 70s disco ones – and titles include "Deaf, Blind, Paralyzed", "Sunday Morning People", "My Mind's On Leaving", "We Belong Together", and "Blessed Be Our Love". On Soulful Tapestry, the trio of Edna Wright, Shellie Clark, and Carolyn Willis are at the height of their 70s powers – soaring forth in a massive trio mode, one that really rewrites the sound of girl group soul for the 70s! There's a bouncy, upbeat groove to the record – kind of a pre-disco approach, but one that's still strongly rooted in the best Detroit soul mode of the Holland-Dozier-Holland team too! Tracks include "One Monkey Don't Stop No Show", "Want Ads", "All the Kings Horses", and "How Does It Feel". Love Peace & Soul is the last Honey Cone album for Hot Wax Records – and a set that's still very much at the top of their game! As with other artists from the Holland-Dozier-Holland stable of hits in the 70s, Honey Cone have a massive amount of force behind their groove – so much so, the record might still be great even if the vocals were nothing special – but fortunately, the trio of Edna Wright, Shellie Clark, and Carolyn Willis bring plenty to the table too – a great sense of individual soul and all-together harmonies! Titles include "Who's Lovin You", "Stay In My Corner", "I Lost My Rainbow", "Ace In The Hole", "Sittin' On a Time Bomb", and "A Woman's Prayer". CD features 7 more bonus tracks too – including "The Truth With Come Out", "Somebody Is Always Messing UP A Good Thing", "Want Ads (unedited)", and "If I Can't Fly". CD

Herb Alpert & OthersWhipped Cream & Other Delights – Re-Whipped ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1960s/2006. Used ... $6.99
A surprisingly great take on the Tijuana Brass sound of the 60s – one that offers up new remixes of classics, but which is nicely respectful of the original Herb Albert groove! Unlike other remix projects of this type, which sometimes clutter up the tracks with too many extra bits – or abstract the originals past the point of recognition – this one maintains the sense of space, time, and rhythm that Herb first brought to his work in the 60s, while also updating the tunes with a 21st Century aesthetic. Remixers include Medeski Martin & Wood, Mocean Worker, Thievery Corporation, John King (Dust Brothers), and Anthony Marinelli – and titles include "Whipped Cream", "Taste Of Honey", "Green Peppers", "Bittersweet Samba", "Peanuts", "Love Potion #9", and "Butterball".

Darn solid work from Ashford & Simpson – one of the duo's biggest albums for Capitol Records, and a great set from their 80s run for the label! The groove here is a bit more heavy on keyboards and beats than before, but the pair still keep things plenty soulful with their positive, upbeat approach to the music – rich, full, and always steeped in soul! The title track, "Solid", is one of the most-remembered tunes from the duo – and other cuts include "Outta The World", "The Jungle", "Honey I Love You", "Babies", "Cherish Forever More", and "Tonight We Escape". CD also features 4 bonus tracks too – "Street Corner", "Babies (ext mix)", "Solid (special club mix)", and "Outta The World (12" dub)". CD

Black HeatBlack Heat ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $9.99
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". CD

17 North Parade, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
The late night lover gets on the African Roots wagon and heads deep into Rasta territory with Joe Gibbs at the helm on this mid 70s gem! Dennis Brown was well established as a leading Lovers Rock and Jamaican soul singer by the time he cut this excellent roots effort for Joe Gibbs in the mid 70s, and the transformation is noteworthy. Brown's vocals pair wonderfully with Gibbs' heavy roots rhythms for a combination that's among either man's finest work! 10 excellent tracks in all, including "Deliverance Will Come", "Love Me Always", "Concrete Castle King", "Malcolm X", "Repatriation", "Milk & Honey" and "Stay At Home".

The record's filled with extended club cuts that have a lot of keyboards and electronics, and although the lyrics are a bit silly at times, the groove is rock solid – with that amazing funky disco sound that was sort of a precursor to the house grooves of the 80s. Adams and Carmichael are on keyboards – and vocalists include Donna Green and Leroy Burgess. Nice all the way through – and tracks include "Lady Bug", "I Love You", "Honey Bun", "Space Shuttle Ride", and "I Got A Big Bee". LP, Vinyl record album

Amazing rare funk by 2 of the hippest artists in the James Brown galaxy of stars – Bobby Byrd and Vicki Anderson – a great match in real life, and on this CD! The first half of the set features rare singles with Bobby in the lead – material that doesn't just include his famous King sides, but also his Brownstone recordings as well – great cuts that explode with the same sort of energy as James Brown's own music! Vicki Anderson's work is great too – hard funky diva sides that are right up there with the best Marva Whitney and Lyn Collins work of the time. The whole thing's great – and titles include "My Concerto", "Never Get Enough", "I Need Help", "Keep On Doin' What You're Doin", and "Hang It Up", "Signed Sealed & Delivered", "If You Got A Love", and "You've Got To Change Your Mind" by Bobby Byrd; "I'm Too Tough For Mr Big Stuff", "Sound Funky", "Don't Throw Your Love In the Garbage Can", "I'll Work It Out", and "In The Land Of Milk & Honey" by Vicki Anderson – plus "Once You Get Started" and "You're Welcome Stop On By", both recorded by Vicki under the name Mommie-O! 18 tracks in all – and a great companion to the James Brown Funky People sets!

Cyrus ChestnutSoul Brother Cool ... CD
WJ3, 2013. Used ... $6.99
A really hard-hitting set from pianist Cyrus Chestnut – wrapped up here in a cover that's an homage to Max Roach in the 60s, and served up with a groove that definitely evokes the best jazz of that decade too! The group's a very sharp quartet – with Chestnut handling piano, plus Freddie Hendrix on trumpet, Dezron Douglas on bass, and Willie Jones II on drums – and also acting here as producer, given that the set's issued on his own label! The team of Douglas and Jones is mighty deft – and really adds a bristle to the rhythms right from the start – providing a perfect place for Hendrix to show off his tight skills on trumpet, while Chestnut mixes things up with lyrical moments and some harder punch on his piano. All tunes are originals by Cyrus, which furthers the fresh feeling of the record – and titles include "The Raven", "Stripes", "Soul Brother Cool", "Piscean Thought", "Spicey Honey", and "Dawn Of The Sunset".

A 16 track selection of grooves from Chocolate Milk – one of the most unsung soul groups of the 70s, with a heck of a lot of great tunes to offer! Chocolate Milk first started out with a heavy New Orleans funk sound in their work – and as the 70s progressed, they smoothed out the groove, and picked up more of the jazzier styles of other end of the decade funk acts. This set offers a great overview of that progression – starting with hard fun numbers like "Action Speaks Louder Than Words", "Ain't Nothin But A Thing", and "Pretty Pimpin Willie", then rolling into tracks like "Girl Callin", "Blue Jeans", "Who's Getting It Now", and "Take It Off". Other titles include "Running Away", "How About Love", "People", "Comin", "Groove City", and "Honey Bun". CD

Elvis CostelloAlmost Blue ... LP
Columbia, 1981. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Elvis Costello's early 80s foray into 60s Nashville and otherwise country-indebted songbooks – and it's a nice one! Even on his tighter, blistering punk era records, Elvis demonstrated not only the voice, but a great ear for the roots and soul that came before him. He showed some soul love quite profoundly a year-or-so earlier on the Get Happy album, and here he works in a similarly respectful mode for classic country, countrypolitan and even a little bit of honky tonk. Produced by Billy Sherrill – who was absolutely essential in the country crossover sound of the 60s and 70s. It's a bit overlooked, but we love this record! Includes "Why Don't You Love Me (Lie You Used To Do)", "I'm Your Toy", "Tonight The Bottle Let Me Down", "Sittin' And Thinkin'", "Honey Hush", "How Much I Lied" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

State, 1977. Very Good ... $4.99
The classic first album from Delegation – a great male soul trio from the late 70s, and one who sounds great on both sweet mellow tunes and more upbeat ones! Delegation have a sound that's quite unique, especially on this album – a groove with slightly tropical traces on some numbers, and a way of putting over a tune that borrows a bit from the earlier east coast harmony scene, but which wraps things up in a completely different style of production. The balance is hard to describe accurately, but it's definitely a standout for the time – and a real maturation of an earlier male soul group mode. Titles here include the famous break track "Oh Honey", plus "The Promise Of Love", "Mr Heartbreak", "Where Is The Love", "Soul Trippin", and "Let Me Take You To The Sun". LP, Vinyl record album

A sweet folk pop set from Bonnie Dobson – recorded at the famous Nashville Sound Studio in Nashville, and eking out every bit of warmth it could provide, most likely in spite of RCA's intent to polish her up for mass consumption! There's a bright and buzzing sound on a number of tunes that caught us off guard – uptempo and fuzzy little groovers that have more of a rockin' lilt – which may have alienated fans of the folk revival stuff she spun, but it sounds groovy to our ears. Really nice stuff! Title include Bonnie's own tunes "Sweet Man" and "You Don't Love" – plus "Light Of Love", "You Don't Know", "Clown", "Do What You Gotta Do", "Factory Girl", "Streets Of London", "A Taste Of Honey" and more.

Scott HamiltonLive At Smalls ... CD
Smalls Live, 2014. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Tenorist Scott Hamilton has made countless great records for other labels over the decades, but he sounds especially nice in this debut for the Live At Smalls series – a setting that really lets him open up, take off, and craft some wonderfully extended solos! Hamilton's a creative talent in the best old school mode – but while his phrasing and timing are often caught well in studio sets, his ability to spin a solo on the fly doesn't always come out this strongly – at a level that makes the record one of Scott's best in years. The group's very laidback – really letting the tenor take the lead at most points – and players include Rossano Sportiello on piano, Hassan Shakur on bass, and Chuck Riggs on drums – on titles that include "Ah Moore", "Estate", "Runnin Wild", "The Nearness Of You", "Easy Does It", and "Apple Honey".

Clarence Frogman HenryBaby Ain't That Love – Texas & Tennessee Sessions 1964 to 1974 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
Loads of rare work from the great Clarence Frogman Henry – a New Orleans singer with a really unusual voice – as you might guess from his name! The set includes Henry's big hit "Ain't Got No Home" but then spins out to include a wealth of under-exposed singles from later years – titles issued on the Dial and Parrot labels, as well as nine never-issued tracks which appear here for the first time ever! As the title indicates, the style stretches past the core New Orleans groove of Clarence's roots – although that rolling rhythm is almost always in place, as it seems to really encourage Henry's vocal approach to hit its heights. Titles include "Long Lost & Worried", "Looking Back", "Cajun Honey", "You Made Me Love You", "Think It Over", "Mathilda", "You can Have Her", "Hummin A Heartache", "This Time", "That's When I Guessed", and "The Glory Of Love". CD
(Limited to 1500 copies!)
