Venice (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $4.99
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

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

Duke PearsonSweet Honey Bee ... LP
Blue Note, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
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".

Taste Of HoneyTaste Of Honey ... CD
Capitol/Universal (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
Probably the most successful album the Mizell Brothers ever produced, and a fine set of uptempo groovers from this female soul duet! There's some nice jazzy moments underneath the catchy lyrics, and in a way, the album's style is sort of a blueprint for the sound that would emerge over the next few at Capitol Records, where some incredible albums of modern soul would be recorded. And sure, at one level the group's hit "Boogie Oogie Oogie" is a bit of oversaturated pop disco – but there's plenty of other great moments that show the group as a more sophisticated soul outfit, including "This Love Of Ours", "Sky High", "Distant", "You're In Good Hands", "Sky High" and "If We Loved". This remastered version from Big Break UK includes bonus mixes: "Boogie Oogie Oogie (Single Mix)", "Boogie Oogie Oogie (12" New Boogie Mix)" and "Disco Dancin' (12" Disco Mix)". CD

Taste Of HoneyTwice As Sweet ... CD
Capitol/Universal (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
Twice as sweet, and mighty neat – a killer set from Taste Of Honey, and one that has the girls moving away from Mizell Brothers help in the studio, and getting some great grooves from George Duke! Duke brings in all his best jazzy soul to the duo – lots of keyboards stepping around the tight vocals, and a way of laying together the rhythms so that they're nicely focused, yet never too commercial – that same great balance that George had in his own music at the time! Titles include the single "Sukiyaki", plus "Ain't Nothin' But A Party", "Rescue Me", "I'm Talkin Bout You", "She's A Dancer", and "Don't Lead Me On". This Big Break UK remastered edition includes the bonus track "I'm Talkin' 'Bout You (Single Version)". CD

Capitol/Big Break (UK), 1982. New Copy ... Around April 6, 2015
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

Bobby ScottTaste Of Honey ... LP
Atlantic, 1960. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Forget everything you've ever heard about the song "A Taste Of Honey" – because long before it became an oft-covered upbeat trumpet tune, it was the bittersweet theme to one of the darker works of the 60s. This album – a beautiful set of jazz tracks written by pianist Bobby Scott – was the soundtrack for the dramatic work Taste Of Honey, performed on Broadway and immortalized forever as one of the British "angry young man" film classics of the 60s. Scott's score is perfect for the play – filled with dark moody passages, augmented by the reed work of Frank Socolow – and the unresolved introspective quality of the material is every bit as haunting as the film. Titles include "Peter's Vamp", "Rain Music", "Bridge Scene", "Peter's Theme", and "Heat Music". LP, Vinyl record album

Ashford & SimpsonSolid (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Cherry Pop (UK), 1984. New Copy ... $13.99
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

BeatlesPlease Please Me (180 gram vinyl – mono) ... LP
Parlophone/Apple, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 22.98
An overstuffed album of early greatness – served up with a classic image of the Fab Four on the cover! The tunes are a mix of Lennon/McCartney originals and American soul and rock numbers that are reinterpreted wonderfully by the group – in ways that perfectly show why, unlike most of their contemporaries, The Beatles weren't just trying for slavish imitation of American authenticity – and instead were already taking off with new ideas inspired by the music! Titles include "Please Please Me", "Love Me Do", "Misery", "Anna", "I Saw Her Standing There", "Boys", "Baby It's You", "Do You Want To Know A Secret", "Twist & Shout", "A Taste Of Honey", and "Chains".

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

Black SheepWolf In Sheep's Clothing ... CD
Mercury, 1991. Used ... $3.99
A Native Tongues classic from 1991 – one that sounded great way back when, and has held up beautifully over the years – and rightly considered amongst the greatest hip hop albums ever! Wolf In Sheep's Clothing is playful rap at it's best, with funky and and funny cuts galore – but the title is apt, as the wit is pretty sharply barbed – especially when they're skewering hardcore and gangsta cliches. It's as brilliant as ever. Includes the massive "Flavor Of The Month", "Similak Child", "Pass The 40", "To Whom It May Concern", "Butt In The Meantime", "Strobelite Honey", "Are You Mad?", "Blunted", "For Doz That Slept" and more.

RCA, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A spacey Patrick Adams/Greg Carmichael dance classic – and very much in the P&P disco mode! 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

State, 1977. Very Good- ... $3.99
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.

Lee Fields & The ExpressionsMy World ... CD
Truth & Soul, 2009. New Copy ... $9.99 14.98
One of the best new soul records we've heard in years – a tremendous accomplishment for the mighty Lee Fields, and a set that's quite different than any of his other work! We've always loved Lee's funk and deep soul sides, but this album's something new altogether – almost done in the hard-edge, downtempo mode of the east coast harmony scene of the late 60s and early 70s – like some of the best group soul work coming out of New Jersey or Philly, with some super-dope production and instrumentation that's really amazing! The grooves follow strongly in the same laidback style as recent El Michels work – no surprise, given the El Michels connection to the music – with beats that are hard, but slow – and instrumentation that's funky, but in a mellow sort of way. Lee's vocals are as deep as ever – very much trained in the James Brown tradition, but turned here towards a really unique groove that makes us completely reevaluate his talents – an amazing achievement not just for Fields, but also for the whole Truth & Soul/El Michels crew! An instant classic – with tracks that include "My World", "Ladies", "Expressions Theme", "Honey Dove", "Money I$ King", "Love Comes & Goes", "Do You Love Me", and "Last Ride". CD

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".

Gloria GaynorNever Can Say Goodbye ... CD
MGM/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
The start of a very successful run for Gloria Gaynor – a seminal bit of crossover 70s soul – one that perfectly linked the dancefloor with the airwaves, and managed to take on more than a few living rooms as well! Gloria's not entirely in full blown disco-diva mode yet, and works here with a soaring Philly-styled groove – of the sort you'd hear with groups like First Choice or Three Degrees – almost grounded a bit in earlier female soul, especially in the vocals and overall changes in the grooves – yet sparkled up plenty with some fuller, richer 70s arrangements. Those are handled by Norman Harris and Harold Wheeler – who do plenty to warm up the production by Meco – and the set includes the stunning 6 minute version of Gloria's big hit "Never Can Say Goodbye", plus "All I Need Is Your Sweet Lovin", "We Belong Together", "Real Good People", "Honey Bee", and "Reach Out I'll Be There".

✨✧ 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".

Impulse/GRP, 1964. Used ... $5.99
A warm and wonderful 60s session from Lionel Hampton – recorded in a personal and intimate way, one that even surpasses his great small combo sides of the 50s! There's a relaxed feel here that you don't always get with Hamp – a gently grooving quality that we really like a lot, and which is traditional, but never too staid or too "easy" in its choices. The set benefits from some really strong horn work from Clark Terry on trumpet and Ben Webster on tenor – the latter of whom really crackles out with a great sound here. Other players include Milt Hinton on bass, Hank Jones on piano, and Osie Johnson on drums – and there's also a very slight bit of vocalizing on the record as well. Titles include "Tempo's Birthday", "Vibraphone Blues", "Trick Or Treat", "Cute", "Swingle Jingle", and "Taste Of Honey". CD

There's a fair bit of soul in the mix here, including some great work on vocoder – blended in with Hancock's work on jazzy keyboards – all wrapped up in a cosmic level that really fits the image on the cover, and which acts as a preface for some of the electro work to come in the early 80s! The blend is great – with that sublime balance that Hancock did better than anyone else – and titles include "Trust Me", "Tell Everybody", "Honey From The Jar", and "Knee Deep".

Bill HarrisComplete 50s Sessions (Bill Harris & Friends/Ex-Hermanites/Bill Harris Herd) ... CD
Lonehill (Spain), 1946/1952/1957. Used 2CDs ... $14.99
The only 3 albums ever cut as a leader by trombonist Bill Harris – a player who first rose to fame in the Woody Herman group of the early 50s, but who was also a heck of a great leader on his own! Like other Hermanites, Harris here displays an amazing talent for both tightness of group formation and respect of solo space – a style that allows for some bold head arrangements on most tunes, but also really makes the best of solo voices from players who include Ben Webster on tenor, Terry Gibbbs on vibes, Lou Levy on piano, and Harris himself on trombone. Most of the tunes are standards, but arranged in a manner that's quite fresh – another Hermanite touch – and the 2CD package features 7 tracks from Bill Harris & Friends (with Ben Webster), 8 more from Bill Harris & The Ex-Hermanites (with Gibbs, Lou Levy, and a bit of vocals), and 12 from The Bill Harris Herd, which features four trombones and four saxes, in Hermanite formation. CD also features one 1946 track recorded with Ralph Burns – making for a total of 28 tracks that include "It Might As Well Be Spring", "Laura", "Apple Honey", "Just One More Chance", "I Surrender Dear", "Your Father's Moustache", "Lemon Drop", "Early Autumn", "Bill Not Phil", "You're Blase", "Jive At Five", "Tutti Frutti", "Sue Loves Mable", and "Introspection".

Tubby HayesTubby Hayes Quartet Live At The Dancing Slipper ... CD
Harkit (UK), 1966. Used 2CD ... $14.99
Lost live material from one of Tubby Hayes' hippest later groups – a quartet with drummer Tony Levin, who really helps to open up Tubby's sound on the set! Hayes plays both flute and tenor on the record – and although the tunes are all standards, they're taken at extremely long takes that let Tubby open up tremendously – reworking the familiar melodies into extended vehicles for creative improvisation. Levin's rhythms help a lot towards this end too – as their often unusual for the tunes, and play with conventional expectations long before Tubby's solos come into the mix. 4 of the album's 6 tracks run for over 15 minutes each – stretching out in extremely creative ways that even far surpasses other live Tubby Hayes work from this period – and titles include "Taste Of Honey", "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most", "By Myself", "Alone Together", and "What Is This Thing Called Love".
