✨✧ Linda LewisTear & A Smile (with bonus tracks) ... CD
CBS/Big Break (UK), 1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem from Linda Lewis – an early 80s album recorded after her time in the 70s limelight – and a set that's every bit as strong, if not stronger than, most other soul records of the time! Lewis is working here with studio help from two different forces – a warm New York sound from the mighty Bert DeCouteaux, and some snappier London grooves supplied by The Quick – who help update Lewis' sound slightly, yet still keep things right on the money! Linda's vocals are wonderful – and if anything, they've gotten even better with maturity – shedding off some of that little girl feel of previous years, and really making us believe some of the more bittersweet lyrics in the set. Titles include "Destination Love", "I Am What I Am", "Don't Let It Go", "This Boy", "Why Can't I Be The Other Woman", "Sweet Heartache", and "You Don't Know What You're Missing". CD features 5 bonus tracks – "Come On Back", "I Can Take It", "Class/Style (12" groove mix)", "You Turned My Bitter Into Sweet (12" megamix)", and "Class/Style (single)". CD

VariousMainstream Modern Soul – 1969 to 1976 ... CD
Kent/Mainstream (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 18.99
A huge array of soul tracks from the Mainstream label – an imprint that was probably best known for its jazz work of the early 70s, and as the launching pad for a few key rock groups – but one who also cut some killer soul tracks in the best New York and Philly styles of the period! Mainstream only ever issued most of its soul material as singles – 45s issued on their own label, and under the IX Chains, Brown Dog, and New Moon imprints too – spread out in an array of under-circulated, poorly-distributed releases that never fully got their due at the time – partly because much of the music was years ahead of its time! There's a groove here that reminds us of the hippest sounds from bigger labels – including Philly International or All-Platinum – with a similar blend of sweetness, honest vocal performances, and some top-shelf studio work that gives the lyrics a hell of an instrumental push, but all without ever sounding slick or commercial. The package is a much-needed look at this scattered legacy – and brings together 24 rare cuts that include "These Memories" by Almeta Lattimore, "I'm The One Who Loves You" by JG Lewis, "Come Back (part 1)" by The Fantastic Puzzles, "I Can't Give You Up" by Linda Perry, "It Ain't Like It Used To Be" by Randolph Brown & Company, "No Rebate On Love" by The Dramatics, "You're A Friend Of Mine" by Words Of Wisdom, "Satisfy My Woman" by Calvin Arnold, "Plain Out Of Luck" by Nia Johnson, "We're Not Too Young To Fall In Love" by Jackey Beavers Show, "Let The People Talk" by The Steptones, "To Whom It May Concern" by Ellerine Harding, "It's So Real" by McArthur, "Stop & Think A Minute" by Charles Beverly, and "That's The Way She Is" by Bobby Earl Williams.

✨✧ Lady WrayDo It Again/In Love ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great female soul track, but one with a nicely vintage vibe – thanks to great handling from the El Michels empire! The tune's got this slow-stepping, gently-snapping funky sound at the core – while Lady Wray delivers these beautiful lyrics over the top, with almost a 70s sort of New Jersey soul vibe! "In Love" begins with an acoustic guitar line, but moves with more of the dope undercurrents of the main cut – and the mix of guitar and Wray's sweet voice almost makes the whole thing feel like one of Linda Lewis' best cuts from back in the day! 7-inch, Vinyl record

David SanbornSanborn ... LP
Warner, 1976. Very Good+ ... $2.99
A damn great early moment from David Sanborn – a record that really shows the reedman at his best – working some tight solos over soulful backings in the same 70s manner as Tom Scott or Wilton Felder! Like both of those players, David's got the chops to step out in front of the backings strongly – blowing some of his best notes with surprisingly little flourish, and crafting a soulful lead that's supported by work from Hiram Bullock on guitar, Rosalinda De Leon on keyboards, and Victor Lewis on drums. There's a bit of vocals on the album – courtesy of Patti Austin, Lain Groves, Phoebe Snow, and Paul Simon – and titles include "Indio", "Smile", "Concrete Boogie", "Mamacita", and "7th Ave". LP, Vinyl record album
