Foreign ExchangeTales From The Land Of Milk & Honey (colored vinyl) ... LP
HBD, 2015. New Copy 2LP ... $23.99 24.98
The deepest work yet from Foreign Exchange – and as hard as it is for us to believe, a record that unofficially kicks off the second decade of the one-time transatlantic partnership of Nicolay and Phonte – which has evolved into a bonafide indie soul supergroup with Zo!, Tamisha Waden and Carmen Rodgers! Tales From The Land Of Milk And Honey is as full of life as anything we've heard from them, and honestly, a record we'll be able to keep coming back to for years. On the production front, Nicolay has found a way to pay homage to the past half century of breezy soul and R&B, club grooves, bossa and more, and distill it all into a fairly tight sound that belongs to FE+. Phonte is as vocally charismatic on his cuts as ever, whether he's playing it straight, or just having a little bit of fun – like when he's affecting a British accent on "Asking For A Friend" – and the women's voices are never less than beautiful, on both the lead vocal turns and the hooks. Includes "Milk And Honey", "Work It To The Top", "Truce", "Disappear", "Sevenths And Ninths", "Asking ForA Friend", "Body", "As Fast As You Can", "Face In The Reflection" and "Until The Dawn (Milk And Honey Pt II)".

MinistryLand Of Rape & Honey (200 gram pressing) ... LP
Sire, 1988. New Copy (reissue)... $27.99
A huge moment for Ministry – and the record that strongly brought forward all the underground styles that Al Jourgenson was bringing to the Chicago scene! The vocals and overall sound are a lot rawer than ever before – especially the earliest Ministry music, which was more in a Brit pop mode – and the record is honestly more of a Wax Trax release, as it shows Al's strong links to the industrial underground that had grown up around that Chicago label – as well as a surprising interest in hardcore too. Recorded in both Chicago and London, with some great guest work from Chris Connelly (onetime Dusty Groove employee!) – and titles that include "Deity", "The Missing", "Destruction", "Golden Dawn", "Stigmata", "Land Of Rape & Honey", and "Flashback".

Duke PearsonHoney Buns ... LP
Atlantic, 1965. Very Good ... $14.99
An excellent Duke Pearson album – and (dare we say it?) better than any of his Blue Note LPs! The record features a very tight lineup with Johnny Coles on trumpet, Garnett Brown on trombone, Les Spann on flute, James Spaulding on alto, and George Coleman on tenor – all players who are well suited to Pearson's warm funky style on the piano, but who also have a strong modernist sensibility that really comes through on the solos. The album is filled with nice tracks – like "New Girl", "Honeybuns", "Heavy Legs", and the fantastic lyrical groover "Is That So", plus "You Know I Care" and "Our Love". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

Lenny WelchTaste Of Honey – The Complete Cadence Recordings 1959 to 1964 ... CD
Cadence/Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... About July 1, 2016
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".

✨✧ Honey ConeSweet Replies ... LP
Hot Wax, 1971. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ John Lennon/Yoko OnoMilk & Honey ... LP
Polydor, 1984. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The second album released of material from the Double Fantasy sessions – released in 1984, years after John's murder, and record we can easily admit having a lot of affection for all these years later! The production has something of a rough, unfinished vibe to it – yet fairly conventional in instrumentation – with John's to-the-point lyricism working pretty well in that setting. Yoko's eccentric vocals – sometimes plaintive and intimate and at other points in a ghostly echo sound better on this record than she's ever been given credit for. Tender, affectionate John & Yoko – quite appropriate given the time of release and sad circumstances. Includes "I'm Stepping Out", "Sleepless Night", "I Don't Wanna Face It", "Don't Be Scared", "Nobody Told Me", "O'Sanity", "Borrowed Time", "Your Time", "Let Me Count The Ways", "You're The One" and more.

✨✧ Taste Of HoneyTaste Of Honey ... LP
Capitol, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 throwaway 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", and "If We Loved".

Arthur AlexanderMonument Years ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
28 tracks from Arthur Alexander – a seminal force in the development of southern soul, featured here in some super-rare tracks from the Monument and Sound Stage Seven labels! Arthur's early hit "I'm Movin On" was recorded for Dot, and is pretty well compiled elsewhere – but this set pushes past that one, and takes us to a few years later, when Arthur was working out of Nashville, taking in equal parts 60s soul and country, mixing both into a sublime sound that should have gotten greater notice. The set features a number of issued singles, plus a wealth of previously unreleased material – and titles include "Baby For You", "The Other Woman In My Life", "Stay By Me", "Me & Mine", "Baby This Baby That", "In My Sorrow", "Miles & Miles From Nowhere", "Taking Care Of A Woman", "Concrete Jungle", "Another Place Another Time", "Call Me Honey", "The Migrant", "In The Middle Of It All", "Bye Bye Love", and "We're Gonna Hate Ourselves In The Morning".

Trumpety magic from Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – a record that's known not only for its classic cover of a model dipped in whipped cream, but also for it's tremendously groovy groove! The Tijuana sound is very firmly in place by the time of this set – Mexican-inspired, but compressed down into a sweet little LA groove in that magical A&M way – never too over the top, done in a way that takes a previously-hokey brassy sound, and smoothes it out for the Now Sound generation! Titles include the hit single "Whipped Cream", plus "Taste Of Honey", "Green Peppers", "Bittersweet Samba", "Lemon Tree", "Ladyfingers", and "Butterball". LP, Vinyl record album

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

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

✨✧ Archie Bell & The DrellsDance Your Troubles Away ... LP
TSOP, 1975. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Although Archie Bell & The Drells had recorded earlier with Gamble & Huff on Atlantic, this is their first album for the team's own label – and it's a killer! In a way, Archie and group were sort of responsible for getting Gamble & Huff their own famous imprint in the first place – because their work with the team on Atlantic yielded some instant hits that really pointed the way towards the hit Gamble & Huff style of the 70s, and that sound is brought up-to-date nicely on this LP. The record really retains the strong vocal sound of earlier years – and has some of the best harmonies the band ever recorded, very much in the mode of The O'Jays or Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes. McFadden & Whitehead and Bunny Sigler wrote most of the material, backing is by the Instant Funk group, and the Gamble & Huff team handled production on all cuts. Titles include "Let's Groove", "I Won't Leave You Honey, Never", "Let's Groove", "The Soul City Walk", "Dance Your Troubles Away", and "I Love You (But You Don't Even Know It)".

Black HeatDeclassified Grooves – Black Heat/No Time To Burn ... CD
Atlantic/Label M, Early 70s. Used 2CD ... $9.99
The first 2 rare funk albums by Black Heat in one package! The group was one of the best funk acts to record for Atlantic during the 70s – and they've got a sound that's a mixture of New Orleans funk, African influences, and New York heavy jamming. The tracks are about 50% instrumental – and these are the best numbers, as they've got a tightly compressed groove, mixing choppy guitar, hot organ licks, and sweet sax solos into a very tight blend. The first album's got some guest work on reeds by David Newman – but the real strength lies in the group's overall ability to lay down a funky rhythm track and keep it going strong and long. Titles include "Chip's Funk", "Super Cool", "M&M's", "No Time To Burn", "Love The Life You Live", "Rapid Fire", "Things Change", "Wanoah", "Barbara's Mood", "Chicken Heads", "The Jungle", "Send My Lover Back", "Honey Love", and "Time Is gonna Catch You".

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

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.

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".

Narvel FeltsThose Rockabilly Days ... CD
Stomper Time (UK), Late 50s/2002. New Copy ... $9.99
A much-needed collection of work from the legendary Narvel Felts – a legendary early rocker whose output was initially limited to just a handful of rare singles! Almost all those singles appear here – material recorded for Mercury and other labels – mixed with tracks that were unissued in the late 50s, but finally saw release during an 80s wave of rockabilly reissues – and which are mixed here with another batch of material from later years when Felts was back in the studio, recording surprisingly strong tracks in 1989, 1997, and 2002 – all still in a spare, stripped-down classic rockabilly mode! As you can imagine, we still like the old stuff best, and there's plenty of that on here – given that the collection features 30 tracks in all, an notes on Narvel's career too. Titles include "Cry Baby Cry", "Tally Ho", "Cutie Baby", "Darling Sue", "Honey Love", "Rocket Ride", "My Babe", "Go Go Go", "Cindy Lou", "Did You Tell Me", "Woman Love", and "Mystery Train". CD

Don Gardner & Dee Dee FordDon Gardner & Dee Dee Ford – Absolutely The Best ... CD
Fire/Fuel 2000, Early 60s. New Copy ... $5.99 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".

Herbie HancockFeets Don't Fail Me Now (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1979. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Sweet keyboard grooves from Herbie Hancock – and a set that has him taking up some of the territory of younger players he'd inspired – like Bobby Lyle, Webster Lewis, or Rodney Franklin! 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", "You Bet Your Love", "Tell Everybody", "Honey From The Jar", and "Knee Deep". Lots of bonus tracks – including "You Bet Your Love (special disco version)", "Honey From The Jar (special disco version)", "Tell Everybody (disco version)", and 7" mixes of some other tracks too.

Ronnie HawkinsBest Of Ronnie Hawkins – Featuring His Band (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
Searing sounds from Ronnie Hawkins – one of the sharper, more hard-hitting mainstream talents in the early days of rock and roll – and one of the few who could bring an indie sound to a bigger market, all without ever losing his edge! Ronnie gets great backings from The Hawks – a tight combo who keep things from ever sounding too poppy, and who often back Hawkins' excellent vocals with some strong guitar lines that create some surprisingly bluesy currents. Hawkins himself is a great singer, too – with a style that's got a bit of a rockabilly twang, but a slower, more soulful approach too – almost a precursor to later swamp rock – no surprise, given that Ronnie pulled himself up from home territory in the Ozarks! Titles include "Searchin", "Mojo Man", "Sexy Ways", "Bossman", "Bo Diddley", "Come Love", "Honey Love", and "Arkansas". CD features 6 bonus tracks too – including "Forty Days", "Southern Love", "Need Your Lovin", and "One Of These Days". CD

High FashionFeelin Lucky ... LP
Capitol, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
An 80s groove classic – and a killer bit of Captiol Records soul from High fashion! Of all US major labels, Capitol was probably putting out the best soul in the early 80s – and this is a tight modern batch of up-tempo tracks, right up there with other contemporary classics on the label, like work by BB&Q Band, Taste Of Honey, and TS Monk! The tunes all manage to have a great groove without sounding cheesy – thanks to some nice jazzy touches in the arrangements, good hooks in the songs, and some great soulful vocals. Very, very nice – and nearly every cut's a winner! Tracks include "Feelin Lucky Lately", "Next To You", "Hold On", "When The Lover Strikes", "I Want To Be Your Everything", and "You're the Winner".
