Linda LewisHeart Strings ... LP
Reprise, 1974. Very Good ... $4.99
Great stuff from Linda Lewis – one of the sweetest soul talents of the 70s! Linda's got a great jazzy vocal style that's somewhere between Minnie Riperton and other more folksy singers, like Ellen McIlwaine, and she's really got a knack for writing great little tracks that have a good groove to them. This album's sort of a combination of tracks from some of her other Reprise albums, plus a few others that didn't appear elsewhere. It includes her classic "Sideways Shuffle", which is always a big hit with the groove scene, plus lots of other nice ones, including "Fathoms Deep", "On The Stage", "I Dunno", and "I'm In Love Again". LP, Vinyl record album

Linda LewisLark ... LP
Reprise, 1973. Very Good ... $9.99
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

VariousLadies Of Detroit Sound Vol 1 ... CD
Bar, 1960s. Used ... $6.99
26 rare Detroit soul singles – all cut by the many lovelies who recorded in the city, but never got as big as some of the huge stars on the Motown label. That's a-ok with us, though, because these gals have a raw, honest quality that's really refreshing – and finding this set is like unlocking a treasure trove of a lost soul tradition. Titles include "Midnight Johnny" by Liz Lands, "Goodbye Cruel World" by Linda Griner, "Lonely Lonely Girl Am I" by The Velvettes, "You're Gonna Love My Baby" by Barbara McNair, "I Got A Feeling" by Barbara Randolph, "Baby Boy" by Juanita Williams, "Sweetheart Darling" by Rose Batiste, "I'm Spellbound" by Tamiko Jones, "Keep On Lovin Me" by Frances Nero, and "You Need Me" by The Lewis Sisters. CD
(Note: CD appears to have been mastered from vinyl sources – and although printed professionally, it's a bit low-budget in terms of the packaging. CD may not play well on all players.)

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.

VariousSuper Duper Love – Mainstream Hits & Rarities – 1973 to 1976 ... CD
Mainstream/Kent (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Killer cuts from one of the coolest indie labels on the east coast scene in the 70s – Mainstream Records, an imprint that may be best-remembered for its righteous jazz albums of the time – but a company who also cut a heck of a lot of stellar soul on funky 45s! This collection does a great job of looking at this under-circulated side of Mainstream – music that hasn't hit the reissue market as much as some of their albums – and singles that maybe never made it past the Mississippi at the time, even though the quality of work is totally wonderful! There's a few of Mainstream's bigger soul tracks here – some of the few they got on radio play at the time – but there's lots more work that's even more obscure, and which really opens up our understanding of the label. Much of the work has a warm pre-disco sort of groove – strong group soul, excellent female singers, and a number of great funk cuts – all served up here in a set of 24 tracks with complete notes and excellent sound. Titles include "Seven Day Lover" by Raymond Smith, "Whatever's Your Sign (You Got To Be Mine) (part 1)" by Prophecy, "I Need Someone" by Linda Perry, "Soul Makossa" by Afrique, "Success Don't Come Easy" by The Steptones, "I Can See Him Loving You" by Trieste, "Business Deal" by Doris Duke, "Let The Music Play" by JG Lewis, "I Need You Back Home" by Sandra Phillips, "King Kong" by The Electric Ladies, "Just In The Nick Of Time" by Chocolate Syrup, "Then I Reach Satisfaction" by The Eleventh Commandment, "Tonight Let The Other Woman Cry Some" by Ellerine Harding, "Super Duper Lover (parts 1 & 2)" by Sugar Billy, and "Friendly Neighborhood Freak (part 1)" by Calvin Arnold.

✨✧ Lady WrayDo It Again/In Love ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... 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
