J RawlsLegacy ... LP LP format
Polar, 2014. New Copy ... $9.99 21.98
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.

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 RawlsLou Rawls Live (Philadelphia International) ... LP LP format
Philadelphia International, 1978. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Just in case you were fearing that Lou's late 70s talents were only part of the studio magic of Gamble & Huff, this set proves that Mr Rawls could really sparkle in a spontaneous live setting – working here with a totally top-shelf set of arrangements that display a really wide range of his talents. Lou's a consummate entertainer throughout, and slips into some great patter that recalls some of the best bits on his Capitol albums – working the audience with charm and wit, then slipping into a tune without missing a beat. Titles include "This One's For You", "Groovy People", "Lady Love", "Charge Card Blues Medley", "Stay Awhile With Me", "A Lovely Way To Spend An Evening", "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine", and "When You Say Budwiser, You've Said It All" – Lou's version of the famous 70s commercial, dedicated to his sponsor!

Philadelphia International, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Lou's classics for Philly International – a warm mix of smooth soul and adult vocals, handled with some great arrangements by Dexter Wansel and Thom Bell. There's less standout singles on this set than previous Philly records, but Lou's class and quality makes nearly every track come out wonderfully – a masterpiece of soulful understatement and grace. Titles include "We Keep Getting Closer To Being Further Apart", "Time Will Take Care Of Everything", "What's The Matter With The World", "Bark Bite", and "Lover's Holiday". LP, Vinyl record album

New Lou RawlsShades Of Blue ... LP LP format
Philadelphia International, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Lou Rawls' last albums for Philly International, and a really nice departure from the style of Lou's earlier hits for the label. It's got a sophisticated jazzy mode that has Rawls often singing with sparer piano backings than the fuller strings of the late 70s – in a way that's sort of a return to the jazziness of some of his roots. A number of tracks are standards or familiar 70s numbers, done in modes that run from bluesy soul to mellower jazz vocals. Titles include "Did You Ever Love A Woman", "A Cottage For Sale", "Be Anything", "Think", and "I Go Crazy". LP, Vinyl record album

All the best elements for Lou's Capitol work are in place – arrangements by HB Barnum, production by David Axelrod, and a hip batch of pop tracks that really push Lou into a whole new dimension! Axelrod really knows how to bring up the bass in the arrangements, and create just the right amount of space for Lou to open up his fantastic voice on cuts like the amazing title track, "Let's Burn Down The Cornfield", "Hurtin", "Will Someone Carry The Ball", "Yesterday's Dreams", "When Someone Comes Along", and "How Can That Be".

New Lou RawlsSit Down & Talk To Me ... LP LP format
Philadelphia International, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
Not as hit-heavy as some of Lou's other albums for Philly International, but a nice batch of mellow jazzy soul tracks – with arrangements by Thom Bell, Bunny Sigler, Dexter Wansel, and others. Some of the tunes get nicely uptempo – hitting the warmer clubby modes that always worked well with Rawls at Philly International – a style that still allowed for more than enough space for Lou to stretch out vocally and hit some of his hipper, more sophisticated modes. Titles include "Sit Down & Talk To Me", "You're My Blessing", "Old Times", "Ain't That Loving You", and "One Day Soon You'll Need Me". LP, Vinyl record album

David AxelrodDavid Axelrod Anthology II ... CD CD format
Stateside (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $11.99
Genius work from one of the greatest arranger/producers ever! David Axelrod isn't what you'd exactly call a household name, but over the past 40 years, he's had an undeniable influence on modern music! This set documents some of Axelrod's greatest work – his time at Capitol records during the late 60s and early 70s, when he was working some very unusual magic under the guise of simple pop records. The core of the package features tracks from David's own albums of the time – rare instrumental gems that mix together jazz, funk, and complicated soundscapes – and which have gone onto have a huge impact on the sound of hip hop production. Other tracks include Axelrod-handled productions for some other Capitol artists – surprisingly little tunes that break out with wonderful little twists, turns, and sly funky bits! Titles include "Tensity" by Cannonball Adderley, "Good Day Sunshine" by Ray Brown, "The Edge" by David McCallum, "Theme From Che" by Don Randi, "House Of Mirrors" by David McCallum, "Your Good Thing" and "Dead End Street" by Lou Rawls, "Happy People" by Cannonball Adderley, and "Warning Part 2", "Song Of Innoncence", "Merlin's Prophecy", "I Fall To Pieces", and "A Divine Image" by Axelrod himself!

John KasandraMod Messiah ... LP LP format
Respect, 1974. Near Mint- ... $6.99
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 CD format
Capitol/Now Sounds (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
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".

Tina MasonTina Mason Is Something Wonderful! ... LP LP format
Capitol, 1967. Very Good+ ... $11.99
An overlooked gem from the David Axelrod years at Capitol Records – a set that also features some nicely snapping arrangements from HB Barnum! Given that the Axelrod/Barnum team was the force behind Lou Rawls best work of the time, the sound here is pretty darn similar – simple pop, but with a great sense of space, and a nice little bounce at the bottom – a gently jaunty groove that would be great on its own, even if we didn't like Tina Mason's vocals! Fortunately, though, Tina also sounds pretty darn great – almost a bit like some of the Brit female singers of the time, even though she's an American – sweet, but never too sweet, and with a strong sense of rhythm that really works well with the backings. Speaking of backings, instrumentation includes guitar from Howard Roberts and organ from Gerald Wiggins – on titles that include "Life & Soul Of The Party", "Are You There", "A Good Kind Of Hurtin", "The Way Of Love", "You Can Have Him", and "What".

Arthur PrysockAll My Life ... LP LP format
Old Town, 1976. Very Good ... $1.99
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".

Arthur PrysockToo Late Baby – The Old Town Singles 1958 to 1966 ... CD CD format
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
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".

New Jerry ButlerNothing Says I Love You Like I Love You ... LP LP format
Philadelphia International, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
After working with Gamble & Huff on his big hits for Mercury in the late 60s, Jerry returned to work with the pair in the late 70s on their own Philly International label – stepping out with the same sweet groove that the Philly sound had brought to Lou Rawls, in a way that helped Butler really revive his sound at the time! The full rich approach really works magic with Butler's great vocals – in a way that showed that Jerry had never faltered during the 70s, but had just lost some of his steam through a bit of mis-handling by Motown on earlier albums. There's a proud, warm, all-adult sound to the album that we really love – heard to best effect on the anthemic "(I'm Just Thinking About) Cooling Out" and the great mellow groover "Let's Make Love" – but still pretty darn great on other tracks too! Titles include "Mighty Good People", "I'm Glad To Be Back", "Dream World", and "Are You Lonely Tonight". LP, Vinyl record album

New Willie HutchSoul Portrait/Season For Love (plus bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
RCA/Expansion (UK), 1969/1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

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!

Massive mixes from the mighty Tom Moulton – a huge 4CD package that not only includes some classic lost and rare mixes from the 70s, but also a whopping 17 previously unreleased Moulton mixes, appearing here for the first time ever! If there's anyone who's ever been well-suited to reworking a Philly groove, it's Tom – given his long standing association with the soul scene in the City Of Brotherly Love – and his crucial role in pushing soul tracks into the clubs during the 70s. As with most of Tom's best work, the mixes here are richly faithful to the originals – and never try to overstate themselves at all, just focus on the best elements, and bring them to the forefront of the groove! 4CDs, 31 tracks, and Moulton remixes of "Back Stabbers" by The O'Jays, "Dirty Ol Man" by Three Degrees, "Trusting Heart" by The Trammps, "Do It Any Way You Wanna" by People's Choice, "Nights Over Egypt" by The Jones Girls, "I Don't Love You Anymore" by Teddy Pendergrass, "Year Of Decision" by Three Degrees, "Slow Motion" by Johnny Williams, "The Love I Lost" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "She's A Winner" by The Intruders, "Trammps Disco Theme/Zing Went The Strings" by The Trammps, "Let's Groove" by Archie Bell & The Drells, "The Devil Made Me Do It" by Robert Upchurch, "Love Is The Message" by MFSB, "Party Time Man" by The Futures, and "See You When I Get There" by Lou Rawls.

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
