IngramJazzed Up & Funked Out – 50 Years Of Good Music ... CD
Essential, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Fantastic work from Ingram – pulled from a time when the Philly group was really coming into their own! Ingram first recorded under the name Ingram Family – and later gave the world producer Butch Ingram – but the material here is all from a really special time when they were taking their group funk sound and honing it to a razor-sharp edge – creating a style that was perfect for a mellow or midtempo groove – in a way that was often different from some of the bigger funk acts at the start of the 80s! There's almost a less-is-more approach going on here – one that makes the vocals really sound great too – and the set brings together ten classic tracks, with titles that include "Smoothin Groovin", "I Like It", "Drivin Me Crazy", "We Like To Do It", "Fantasy", "Everybody Get On Up & Get Down", "Share A Dream", "Would You Like To Fly", and "Just For You".

IngramNight Stalkers (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Mirage/FTG, 1984. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
Wonderful work from Ingram – an incredibly talented soul family who'd spent more than enough time woodshedding in earlier years, and emerged to become one of the strongest mainstream acts of the 80s scene! There's a solid feel here that goes way beyond commercial soul – a great way with some of the gentler tunes, pointing back to a Philly Soul legacy with ballads – and a hip way with the upbeat numbers, which carefully avoid some of the clunkier 80s soul modes of the period. James, butch, William, John, and Robert Ingram all had a hand in writing the tunes – and titles include "With You", "When You're Hot You're Hot", "Just For You", "Fantasy", and "I Like It". CD has 2 bonus tracks – "With You (ext 12" mix)" and "Girl What's Going On (12" mix)". CD

IngramWould You Like To Fly (with bonus track) ... CD
Mirage/FTG (France), 1983. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
A wicked 80s groove from the mighty Ingram Family! Ingram were one of those groups that actually got better as they got slicker – and by the time of this 1983 release, Butch, James, and William Ingram had had more than enough experience working together and with other artists to really forge a strong sophisticated soul sound. The record's a lot better than many of its group-soul contemporaries' – and it's more of an extension of a 70s harmony group style than it is a throwaway 80s group funk album. The songwriting's a notch above what you'd expect – and the overall soul component is very high. Titles include "Share A Dream", "No One", "Smoothin Groovin", "Spoken Words", and "Groovin On A Groove". CD features the bonus track "Mi Sabrina Tequana". CD

✨✧ VariousButch Ingram Presents Merry Christmas From Philadelphia ... CD
Society Hill, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Contemporary Christmas tracks from the Philly scene – all put together by modern soul maestro Butch Ingram, with backing from the whole Ingram Family! The style here is similar to some of Butch's non-holiday productions in recent years for the Society Hill label – kind of an update of the Philly soul mode of the 80s, especially that moment when the city had moved past disco and was embracing a newly sophisticated, adult approach to soul – as maybe heard in later work by Teddy Pendergrass and Phyllis Hyman! Here, Butch works with a mix of lesser-known Philly acts, and a few older ones – on titles that include "Christmas Time Is Here" by Toni Richards, "O Christmas Tree" by Wardell Piper, "O Holy Night" by Tru, "I Wish" by Butch Ingram, "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" by Donne Tatem, "White Christmas" by Tony Strong, "What Child Is This" by Wardell Piper, and "Marry Me This Christmas" by The Legendary Bluenotes.

Jerry KnightLove's On Our Side ... CD
A&M/Universal (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Brilliant work from Jerry Knight – an artist who often lent his talents to others as an arranger or producer, but who could also really shine in the spotlight on his own! Knight spent time with Raydio, and that vibe definitely shows through here – on tunes that are the perfect summation of 80s funky soul at its best – never over-polished, nor trying too hard for any sort of chart placement – but completely catchy and very tuneful overall! Jerry's also got some superstar help on the record – including piano from James Ingram, who also sings backing vocals with Phil Perry – and production from Leon Haywood on half the set, rounding things out with his own great groove. Titles include "She's Got To Be A Dancer", "I'm Down For That", "Fire", "Beautiful", "Do It All For You", and "Brand New Fool". CD

VariousLooking Back – 80 Mod, Freakbeat, & Swinging London Nuggets – Compiled By Paul Weller (3CD set) ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
Fantastic work from a time when the London scene was heavy on influences from American soul, blues, and R&B – and sought to turn the best elements of that music into something new and unique! Some of the groups here are ones that you'll recognize from later years and greater fame, others are early combos that featured later stars, and still others are wonderful groups you've been lost to the shifting sands of time – but who really show the fantastic edge that the British scene had in the mid 60s! Lots of this work has the mod vibe you'd expect from the title, but there's also some fuzzier moments too – and the package is a hell of a deal at this great price! 80 tracks in all – with titles that include "Looking Back" by Spencer Davis, "I Don't Need Your Kind" by The Rockin Vickers, "Done Me Wrong" by The Couriers, "Broken Truth" by A Wild Uncertainty, "Looky, Looky" by The Brothers Grimm, "Kangaroo" by Hoagy Benson, "Reviewing The Situation" Jacki Bond, "No Good Without You" by The Birds, You Can't Be Serious" by The Mirage, "Jak D'Or" by Episode Six, "Until My Baby Comes Home" by The Mojos, "Hush" by Kris Ife, "Take It Easy" by Sugar Simone, "Yes I Do" by Ram John Holder, "Take Away" by The Couriers, "I'll Be Doggone" by Glen Ingram, "Ace Of Clubs" by The Knave, "Last Night" by Laurel Aitken & The Soulmen, "Baby Do You Know What You're Doing" by Arthur Brown Set, "Please Go" by The Trekkas, and "Tough She Says" by The In Crowd.

✨✧ Legendary BluenotesThis Christmas ... CD
Society Hill, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A reformed version of this legendary Philly soul group – working here on a special set of tunes for the Holiday season! Singer Sugarbear Aikens is in the lead – in the spot that Teddy Pendergrass once held back in the 70s – and Butch Ingram produced and arranged the set, with a vibe that's more contemporary Philly than classic – but in the best style of Ingram's other recent work on the Society Hill label! Sugarbear dominates most of the vocals, but the group do a decent job on the harmonies – and titles include "The Mistletoe Jam", "Fatman Christmas", "Marry Me This Christmas", "Every Year At Christmas", "My Gift To You", and "Mary Did You Know".

✨✧ VariousUptown Soul – Downtown Funk Vol 2 ... CD
Essential, 1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An unusual collection of work that mostly seems to feature obscure soul tracks from the 80s – titles from the farther reaches of the underground, including some lesser-known numbers by acts who broke big in other years of their career! The material is from a variety of sources – some from Philly, some from specific producers – like Buddy Turner or Swamp Dogg – and some from sources we can't determine at all, but in a way that makes them some nice "surprise" entries in he collection! Titles mix together a variety of 80s modes – a bit of club, a bit of electro soul, and some of those transformed southern soul modes that maybe carried a bit more blues at the time – and the set features 17 titles that include "ET" by The Little Debs, "Come & Get Yourself Some" by Formula IV, "Coming Home (7" version)" by Truth, "Think Fast" by Pamela Joy, "You're What's Missin In My Life" by Buddy Turner, "Synthetic World" by Swamp Dogg, "I Believe In Love" by Major Harris, "I Can Do Bad By Myself" by Jesse James, "Special Touch" by Ken Thomas, "So Shy" by Mac Mac & The Jammalott Kingdom, "Give It Up Turn It Loose" by Tony & The Nite Runners, "All I Want To Do" by Johnny Ingram, "Thug Rock" by Sandra Kerr, "We Got One" by Matt Covington, and "Rough Life In The City" by Grace Rico.
