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 ... On December 20, 2017
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 ... On December 20, 2017
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

✨✧ Luther IngramI Don't Want To Be Right – The KoKo Singles Vol 2 ... CD
Koko/Kent (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sublime second chapter in the career of Memphis soul singer Luther Ingram – one of the greatest talents of his generation, represented here by some of his best work ever! Ingram first got his start doing rougher, more fragile soul tunes – but by the time of these 70s recordings, he'd really found his voice – and hit a more confident, more sensuous style that could easily go head to head with Al Green or any of his southern soul contemporaries. There's a key Stax connection to most of the material here, but the sound's a bit different too – thanks to the production efforts of Koko label head Johnny Baylor, who gives Ingram a sound that's nicely apart from the pack. The booklet features a really in-depth look at the music – 14 pages of track-by-track notes on the tunes – and the CD features 19 singles recorded over most of the mid 70s. Titles include "Missing You", "Puttin Game Down", "If Loving You Is Wrong I Don't Want To Be Right", "Always", "Help Me Love", "Love Ain't Gonna Run Me Away", "Ain't Good For Nothing", "These Are The Things", "Let's Steal Away To The Hideaway", "I Like The Feeling", "I'm Gonna Be The Best Thing", "Do You Love Somebody", "Get To Me", "How I Miss My Baby", and "You Were Made For Me".

✨✧ VariousUptown Soul – Downtown Funk Vol 2 ... CD
Essential, 1980s. New Copy ... Temporarily 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.

✨✧ VariousLooking Back – 80 Mod, Freakbeat, & Swinging London Nuggets – Compiled By Paul Weller (3CD set) ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ Ronnie DysonPhase 2/Brand New Day ... CD
Cotillion/Real Gone, 1982/1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of later albums from the great Ronnie Dyson – both of which show him moving strongly well into the 80s! The first set is a self-stated Phase 2 in Ronnie Dyson's career – one that has him moving with a bit more confidence than before, and nicely maturing into a sweet 80s sort of sound! Bobby Eli's at the helm, both on production and rhythm arrangements – and the style here is almost a bit more sophisticated than Dyson's earlier work – kind of that Philly Modern that some of Eli's older contemporaries were hitting. There's no standout hits, but the album's got a nice sense of balance because of that – and overall, the instrumentation's more late 70s than some of the thinner 80s commercial modes. Titles include "Now", "Say You Will", "Heart To Heart", "One More Chance For The Fool", and "Even In The Darkest Night". On Brand New Day, Ronnie's a long way from his falsetto soul hits of the early 70s – but he's seriously back on track as a soul artist, thanks to some smooth help from the Ingram family! Butch Ingram produced the album, and the rest of the Ingrams helped out on instruments, vocals, and even some of the songwriting. In fact, this is more of an Ingram record – with a sound that's very much like their work from the same time – than it is a Ronnie Dyson album. Not that that's a problem, though, as the record's a pretty nice batch of 80s groovers that includes the tracks "You Better Be Fierce", "I Gave You All Of Me", "Tender Lovin Care", "Waiting For You", and "All Over Your Face".

✨✧ Greg PhillinganesPulse (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Planet/Big Break (UK), 1985. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Greg's definitely showing off all his chops on this one – working with help from a huuuge array of famous guest stars – including The Pointer Sisters, James Ingram, Howard Hewett, Jackie Jackson, Michael Jackson, Robbie Nevil, and others. And while the bulk of the record really shows the influence of these mainstream 80s soul artists – and not always in a good way – the record also sports a brilliant tune done with Donald Fagan of Steely Dan, the sweetly grooving "Lazy Nina", which sounds like the best work off Fagan's Nightfly, and has Greg and Don duetting on vocals! Titles include "Behind The Mask", "Signals", "Shake It", "Countdown To Love", "Come As You Are", and "Playin With Fire". CD features 6 bonus tracks – "Only You", "Behind The Mask (12" version)", "Playin With Fire (12" version)", "Behind The Mask (inst)", "Behind The Mask (single)", and "Playin With Fire (inst)". CD

✨✧ People's ChoiceJammin Philly Style ... CD
Essential, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The long-overdue return of People's Choice – a great Philly group who gave us some killer funky 45s in the late 60s, then moved towards more of a clubby groove in the following decade! The sound here is much more in that later vibe by the group – produced and arranged by Butch Ingram, who works the right sort of studio magic to make these guys sound surprisingly youthful overall and really strip down to the funky core of their sound! The group handles most of the instrumentation on the rhythms, and also does a great job of trading vocal lines back and forth – which really opens up the more party-hearty side of their sound – on cuts that include "Let's Groove", "Jammin Philly Style", "Party Is A Groovy Thing", "Do It Any Way You Wanna", "Nursery Rhymes", "TSOP", "I Wanna Know Your Name", and "Jam Jam Jam".
