Linda LewisTear & A Smile (with bonus tracks) ... CD
CBS/Big Break (UK), 1983. New Copy ... $8.99
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

✨✧ Linda LewisLark ... LP
Reprise, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the best-ever albums by this lovely soulful singer! Linda Lewis had an amazing style that was somewhere in between Minnie Riperton, Joni Mitchell, and Ellen McIlwaine – meaning that she mixes soul, folk, and a bit of jazz into her own unique vibe. This album's a gem, and is filled with groovy little songs that have a great sweetly jazzy vibe, and some excellent production that keeps things nicely in place. Linda wrote all the tracks, and backing is by a tight little group that mixes guitar, keyboards, and percussion, in kind of an LA small studio combo sort of way. Titles include "Spring Song", "It's The Frame", "Feeling Feeling", "Waterbaby", and "More Than A Fool". Great songwriting, and one of the loveliest voices that never got the fame it deserved! LP, Vinyl record album

Frank RosolinoFrank Rosolino – Kenton Presents ... LP
Capitol, 1954. Near Mint- ... $24.99
One of the first albums ever cut as a leader by trombonist Frank Rosolino – a hip set issued under the Stan Kenton Presents banner for Capitol in the mid 50s – but done in a smaller combo mode than you'd hear with Stan! The setting provides a great showcase for the emerging solo talents of Rosolino on trombone – a player with a soulful swing that get way past his goofy image on the cover – and which is set up here in the company of some great collaborators who include Charlie Mariano on alto sax – playing so strongly, the album might well include him as a co-leader – plus piano from either Claud Williamson or Pete Jolly, trumpet from Sam Noto, bass from Max Bennett or Curtis Counce, and drums from Mel Lewis or Stan Levey. There's not only a lot of Kenton influence in the players, but a lot of Bethlehem Records styles as well – a reference that definitely shapes the sound of this set, and makes it a strong one for any fan of 50s work on that label – or Mode Records as well. Titles are a mix of standards and originals – and include "Ragamuffin", "Linda", "Carioca", "Besame Mucho", "Yo Yo", and "Freckles". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great Japanese pressing – with insert!)

Esperanza SpaldingRadio Music Society (CD & DVD) ... CD
Telarc, 2012. Used CD & DVD ... $6.99
Maybe the greatest record so far from the lovely Esperanza Spalding – a set that has her moving farther from jazz, into a wonderfully warm style of soul music overall! The mix of modes is exquisite – a blend of Spalding's jazz-trained vocals with some beautiful arrangements that sparkle and glisten with this righteous vibe we'd put right up there with the best 70s recordings by Minnie Riperton or Linda Lewis – a really rare breed that goes way beyond the wonderful promise Esperanza's always had right from the start! The album is an instant treasure – the sort that's sure to please everyone who's already followed Spalding on her journey, yet also win her a huge new audience as well. Q-Tip helped a bit on production, but most of the work is by Spalding herself – and titles include "Radio Song", "Cinnamon Tree", "Crowned & Kissed", "Land Of The Free", "Black Gold", "Let Her", "Endangered Species", "Smile Like That", and "I Can't Help It". Deluxe edition comes with bonus DVD that includes 11 short films and lots of bonus footage! CD

VariousForever Free Soul Collection (3CD set) ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1970s. New Copy 3CD ... $28.99
A triple-length soul spectacular – three full CDs of rare soul from the 70s, plus some surprising extra additions too! The vibe here is very much in the Free Soul mode – that warm blend of soul and funk, with AOR moments, jazzier bits, and other smooth sounds from the 70s – and the tracks include a few additions from left field, mixed in with more familiar numbers – tracks we might not expect, but which fit into the mix really well! There's almost four hours of music in the package – 64 tracks that include "Footprints On The Moon" by Johhny Harris, "You Fooled Around" by Sister Sledge, "Memory Of Our Love" by Donny Hathaway, "Remind Me" by Patrice Rushen, "Feel Alright" by Crackin, "Papillon" by Chaka Khan, "There's No Vibration" by Edgar Broughton Band, "Spring Song" by Linda Lewis, "Come With Me" by Eric Kaz, "Brazil" by Geoff & Maria Muldaur, "Bird Of Beauty" by Svante Thuresson, "Let's Be Friends" by Marilyn Scott, "I Want You Back" by CCS, "Hang On In There" by Stovall Sisters, "Supermarket Blues" by Eugene McDaniels, "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life" by Cold Clood, "Love'll Get You High" by Jo Mama "Whachersign" by Pratt & McClain, "Fantasy" by Aquarian Dream, and "All Along The Watchtower" by Barbara Keith.

✨✧ CommonGo ( LP, inst, radio, acapella)/Chi-City (LP, inst, radio, acapella) ... 12-inch
Getting Out Our Dreams/Okayplayer, 2005. Used ... Out Of Stock
The second single from the stellar BE LP! "Go" rocks along on a sample of the Linda Lewis jam "Old Smokey" – with an vamping appearance by the cut's producer Kanye West – and a certain middlebrow singer-songwriter whose name we won't mention – but he was funny when he appeared on Chappelle's Show! Much better is the flipside "Chi-City" – with a rock solid soul beat production and excitable rhymes by Com. 12-inch, Vinyl record
