Lou RawlsAll Things In Time/Sit Down & Talk To Me ... CD
Philadelphia International/West Side (UK), Late 70s. Used ... $15.99
Two of Lou's best Philly albums on one CD! All Things In Time is the classic album that broke Lou's career through to the next level, and which contained his worldwide hit groover "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine", plus other nice ones like the amazing "Groovy People", "You're The One", and "Lets Fall In Love All Over Again". The other album's pretty darn nice, too, and features more of Lou's sophisticated Philly adult soul – like "You Are", "You're My Blessing", "Ain't That Loving You", and "When You Get Home". 17 cuts in all – at a darn nice price!

Lou RawlsToo Much! ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good ... $4.99
One of the great ones – produced by David Axelrod, with HB Barnum arrangements, and sublime vocals by Lou, who's really at his best in this sort of setting! The album features 2 hip monologues – "Righteous Woman" and "Dead End Street" – plus the famous sung version of the latter, and the tracks "You're Takin My Bag", "I'll Take Time", "Why", and "Yes, It Hurts (Doesn't It?)".

Lou Rawls with Les McCann LtdStormy Monday ... CD
Capitol, 1962. Used ... $8.99
One of Lou's most jazz-oriented albums – featuring backing by Les McCann's famous trio with Leroy Vinnegar and Ron Jefferson, perfectly suited to Lou's soulful renditions of the tunes on the album. Most of the numbers are bluesy ones, but as usual, Lou manages to give them his own hip twist – always a pleasure for us! Titles include "In The Evening", "Sweet Lover", "Willow Weep For Me", "Stormy Monday", and "'Tain't Nobody's Biz-ness If I Do". CD features 3 bonus cuts – "A Little Les Of Lou's Blues", "Blues Is A Woman", and an alternate take of "Stormy Monday". CD

✨✧ Lou Rawls/Ramsey Lewis/Maxine BrownCentral Park Music Festival ... LP
Capitol/Music Images, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $2.99
A pretty great little live set – recorded in Central Park in the late 60s, before a very large crowd! Lou sounds great, as always – and the Ramsey Lewis material is very much in the spirit of the live mid 60s Cadet recordings. Maxine Brown is the real treat, though, as the live setting is quite a contrast to her more staid sides for Wand. Maxine sings "In The Midnight Hour" and "Soul Serenade", Lou Sings "They Don't Give Medals", "Tobacco Road", and "On Broadway", and Ramsey plays "Salute To Ray Charles", "Hang On Sloopy", and "Goin Out Of My Head".

✨✧ J RawlsLegacy ... LP
Polar, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Jazzy hip hop producer/rhymer and longtime under-appreciated uber-talent J Rawls delivers what's billed as his final album as a solo emcee – and to underline the point, it's called The Legacy – focusing squarely on rhymes and lyrics and letting top notch producers handle the beats! It's a testament the J Rawls skills that a record with a different producer for each track can hold together so strongly. They include Rashad, Bombeado, Kev Brown, Rob Riley, Lakim and more. Mic guests include Masta Ace, John Robinson, Illa J, Wordsworth and more. Titles include "Alpha" with Barb Fant, "My People". "Bilss" feat Masta Ace, "Non-Stop", "Southside" feat Ms Sarad, ""The Rest Of My Life" feat Illa J, "Omega" feat JG The Juggernaut, "One Time" feat Wordsworth, "The Legacy" feat John Robinson, Ceezar & Lea Anderson and more – plus the bonus "Best Producer On The Mic II" feat Oddissee, Nottz, Raw & Blueprint.

✨✧ Willie HutchSoul Portrait/Season For Love (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Expansion (UK), 1969/1970. New Copy ... $16.99
A pair of overlooked albums from the great Willie Hutch – back to back on a single CD! First up is Soul Portrait – pre-Motown work from Willie Hutch – but a great little record that really points the way towards Willie's famous sides to come in the 70s! Hutch here already sounds pretty darn great – singing with a raspy tone that reminds us a bit of Curtis Mayfield – especially given that Willie uses the same sort of righteous undercurrent as Curtis – not yet as over the top political, but brewing under nicely with a really marked sense of power! The backings are great too – all arranged by Hutch himself, and already showing some of the hipper styles that he'd bring into play in his later blacksploitation work. One of the deepest soul albums on RCA at the time – with a righteous vibe that's totally great – and filled with wonderful original tunes that include "Lucky To Be Loved By You", "Ain't Gonna Stop", "You Gotta Try", "Let Me Give You The Love You Need", "Do What You Wanna Do", and "Good To The Last Drop". Season For Love is early work from the great Willie Hutch – a set that's different than his more famous Motown music of the 70s, but which already shows a nicely ambitious approach! Willie's a warmer, sweeter-voiced singer here – working through some great original tunes of his own, plus a few well-chosen classics – all in a mix of soul and strings that definitely grooves, but which could also have gotten Hutch some bigger exposure in the larger music world as well. A few numbers are almost more in a jazz vocal territory – or at least in territory of artists like Lou Rawls or Arthur Prysock – while others have the righteous energy of Willie's later sound too. The arrangements are by Rene Hall and Perry Botkin Jr – and titles include "Season for Love", "The Shortest Distance", and "Trying To Understand A Woman", plus covers like "Hurt So Bad" and "Twelfth of Never". CD also features a bonus track – "When A Boy Falls In Love (parts 1 & 2) (45 version)". CD

Gene McDanielsHit After Hit ... LP
Liberty, 1962. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A well-titled album, as it features some of Gene's big early hits, mixed along with lesser-known gems – all done in that proud, loud style he used before becoming the Headless Hero! Snuff Garrett produced most of the work, and the tunes have a bold approach that certainly draws from the Liberty pop sound of the time – but which also has the same righteous soul touches that you might find in Lou Rawls work of the time, and which makes Gene a key link between Lou and earlier singers like Roy Hamilton or Tommy Edwards. Titles include "A Hundred Pounds Of Clay", "Chip Chip", "I Don't Want To Cry", "Tower Of Strength", "A Tear", "Send For Me", and "Point Of No Return". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing. Vinyl has a slight warp but plays just fine.)

Arthur PrysockAll My Life (with bonus track) ... CD
Old Town/Big Break (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99
A great 70s move for Arthur Prysock – and an overlooked disco treasure that sits somewhere between the work of Barry White with Love Unlimited Orchestra, and the best Lou Rawls grooves for Philly International! Prysock's voice has lost none of its depth over the years – and here, instead of jazzy ballads, Arthur's working with some great midtempo grooves put together by John Davis – who produced and arranged, and gives the album all the full clubby depth of his own records with the Monster Orchestra! The mix of groove and grace, baritone and bump, soul and sophistication is all mighty great territory for Prysock – and titles include "When Love Is New", "One Broken Heart", "All My Life", "Love Makin Love To You", "I Wantcha Baby", and "All I Need Is You Tonight". Features a bonus single mix of "When Love Is New". CD

Respect/Stax, 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
A mixed up bag of styles – like all of Kasandra's work from the time – kind of a concept soul album mixed with a showier style, and bits of jazz and vocal-based material. Imagine Lou Rawls letting down his hair during the Capitol years – and you've got only part of the picture – as Kasandra raps a bit, sings a bit, and tells it like it T-I-S! Titles include "Good Whiskey & Bad Women", "Love Will Never Go Out Of Style", "My Home", "I'll Take Time", "Love Consultation", "Ain't I Good?", "The Other Brother", and "That Woman".

✨✧ Les McCannInvitation To Openness – The Jazz & Soul Photography Of Les McCann 1960 to 1980 (hardcover) ... Book
Fantagraphics, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An incredible lost side of the many talents of the great Les McCann – the ultra-hip pianist, singer, and jazz composer who we've loved for years! This book showcases McCann's lesser-known skills as a photographer – a subtle shutterbug who would often take pictures in the same spaces he was performing – gaining backstage access to other musicians, and also shooting them in performance as well – all with a sensitivity that goes far beyond the usual music journalist photographs! The candid shots are especially wonderful – and capture various musical legends in ways we've never seen before – often a bit tuned-down, and much more down to earth than you might expect. The heavy book features a wealth of subjects – including Stevie Wonder, Sonny Rollins, Tina Turner, Ben Webster, Grover Washington Jr, Donald Byrd, Muhammad Ali, Average White Band, James Coburn, John Coltrane, Bill Cosby, Paul Desmond, Angie Dickenson, Eugene McDaniels, Wes Montgomery, Jimmy Smith, Pops Staples, Wilson Pickett, Lou Rawls, Jesse Jackson, Quincy Jones, Aretha Franklin, Redd Foxx, Duke Ellington, Dexter Gordon, Dizzy Gillespie, and dozens more. 200 pages, hardcover, oversized, and filled with black and white images!

✨✧ Arthur PrysockToo Late Baby – The Old Town Singles 1958 to 1966 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great run of music from the mighty Arthur Prysock – an incredibly soulful singer who was at the top of the heap in the early 60s, but who's largely forgotten all these many years later! Prysock had a really unique approach – and one that really paved the way for some of the bigger male ballad soul singers in the late 60s and 70s – a bit of jazz, with a definite influence from Billy Eckstine – mixed with a deep range that's a lot bluesier than his classy look might make you think – often set to backings that open up a new sort of sophisticated territory. Without Prysock, it's hard to imagine Walter Jackson, Lou Rawls, Jerry Butler, and many others – and this sweet batch of singles really sums up the power of the man at his height. The CD features 24 tracks in all – many on CD for the first time – and titles include "Come & See This Old Fool", "Worry Bout You", "Again", "House By The Side Of The Road", "It's Too Late Baby Too Late", "Our Love Will Last", "One More Time", "If Ever I Should Fall In Love", and "Keep A Light In The Window For Me".

✨✧ VariousLay Back & Chill – More Superior Sensuous Soul ... CD
Backbeats (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Here's some chillout music we can really get behind – mellow soul tracks with a beautifully gentle groove – all cut back in the days when an artist could relax a bit without ever losing their cool! The set's heavy on mellow modern soul numbers – all hand-picked by Expansion Records frontman Ralph Tee – who's shown us for decades that he's really got a golden ear when it comes to music like this! There's loads of great gentle steppers on the package, sung by some of the best voices of the mainstream soul scene at the end of the 70s – cuts that include "We Need Love" by Chapter 8, "Be My Girl" by Michael Henderson, "We Found Love" by The Dynamics, "Gonna Make Changes" by Phyllis Hyman, "No Love Nowhere Without You" by Linda Williams, "Ain't That Love Baby" by Lou Rawls, "Brother Brother" by Esther Phillips, "What Do You Want Me To Do" by Lou Courtney, "Stay" by Glenn Jones, "We Never Said Goodbye" by Dionne Warwick, and "Paintings Of Love" by Keni Burke.

✨✧ VariousBeginner's Guide To Latin Jazz (3CD Box Set) ... CD
Nascente (UK), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Not so much an introduction to Latin jazz, as it a wonderful collection of Latin-tinged tunes from the mighty catalog of Blue Note Records – and not just New York and Cuban Latin grooves, but also a fair bit of bossa nova and Brazilian sounds too! The 3CD package is overflowing with goodness – and titles include a range of killer Blue Note gems from the 60s – plus related cuts from labels like Capitol, Liberty, and World Pacific. The groove changes nicely throughout the set, and the instrumentation is superb – as you'll hear on cuts that include "Sandalia Dela" by Duke Pearson, "Chitlins Con Carne" by Kenny Burrell, "Loie" by Ike Quebec, "Samba De Orfeu" by Charlie Rouse, "Bossa For Baby" by Hank Mobley, "South Of The Border" by Lou Donaldson, "Rhapsodia Del Maravilloso" by Sabu Martinez, "Minors Holiday" by Kenny Dorham, "Congalere" by Horace Parlan, "Ghana" by Donald Byrd, "Latin Fever" by Jack Costanzo, "No Problem" by Jerome Richardson, "Girl From Ipanema" by Lou Rawls, "Rojo" by Bobby Hutcherson, and "Thousand Finger Man" by Candido. 38 tracks in all!

✨✧ John KasandraMod Messiah ... LP
Respect, 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
Kasandra's 4th LP for Stax under the ostensibly gospel Respect imprint, though this is no gospel album. Like his other albums, the set's a bit of a high-concept affair, with lyrics and presentation that veer too far from the sort of rough, raw southern soul that was Stax's stock in trade, coming on in a kind of low-rent Lou Rawls mode, which we'll count as a plus rather than as a slam! Kasandra pulls in James Gadson and Cal Green for some able help wioth the arrangements, and titles include "Ou Est L'Amour", "Take It All", "Just One Minute More", "Lay Our Axes Down", and "A House Divided".

✨✧ Donna LorenThese Are The Good Times – The Complete Capitol Recordings (Beach Blanket Bingo/singles) ... CD
Capitol/Now Sounds (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A huge amount of material from the lovely Donna Loren – star of both the big and the small screen in the 60s – and a surprisingly great singer, too! The package features singles, unreleased tracks, and Loren's classic Capitol album Beach Blanket Bingo – which has great work from the team of HB Barnum and David Axelrod! The Barnum/Axlerod combo is perhaps a bit more pop-oriented here than on some of the pair's other Capitol work from the 60s – such as their work with Lou Rawls – but there's often a nice sense of space, groove, and timing to these tracks – a mode that mixes the sweeter pop of Donna's voice with a bit more bounce on the bottom – all in a jaunty groove that's pretty great! Titles include "Cycle Set", "Fly Boy", "I Am My Ideal", "New Love", "It Only Hurts When I Cry", "I Think You Think", and "Beach Blanket Bingo". But in addition to the 10 tracks on the album, this collection adds in 19 more bonus cuts – including "Drop The Drip", "Ninety Day Guarantee", "Woman In Love", "Just A Little Girl", "So Do The Zonk", "Call Me", "My Way", "Hold Your Head High", "Good Things", "Smokey Joe's", and "Leave Him To Me".
