✨✧ Aziza Miller (Linda Williams)Journey Of Love ... CD
Street Jam Groove, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful work from Aziza Miller – a jazz keyboardist and soul singer with a very deep range of expression – one that comes from her many years in music, which include an important 70s sting as the music director for Natalie Cole, and her own famous album for Arista – recorded under the name of Linda Williams! This set's got a vibe that takes us back to those days – but just in terms of quality, as the music's not retro soul – but instead a beautiful hybrid of Aziza's jazz leanings and soul phrasings – on open-ended tracks that have a great sense of flow, and which change things up nicely as things move on. Aziza plays keyboards and sings on all numbers – and the set's got additional guitar, drums, bass, and percussion – with maybe an initial focus on the instrumentation first on the tunes, then a shift towards the vocals once the song rolls on – a bit like some of the best Larry Mizell productions of the 70s. The package is slim – just an LP-styled sleeve – but the record's got a lot more depth than its presentation might make you expect – on titles that include "A Song For My Friend", "A Journey Of Love", "I Don't Say Much", "Say Yes", "A Brand New Song", and "A Song For Silver" – the last of which is dedicated to Horace Silver!

✨✧ Linda WilliamsCity Living ... LP
Arista, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A killer bit of modern soul – one of the standout classics from the best years of Arista! Richard Evans produced and arranged this excellent set of smooth soul grooves for Linda Williams. Linda plays keyboards and sings, and the album was recorded in 2 different sessions – one in LA, and one in Chicago. The album's got a nice jazzy sound, with a similar feel to the Breakwater LPs on Arista at the time. Linda's voice is as wonderful on this set as on anything we've heard from her, and with her depth of talents on the piano & keys, and on the songwriting tip, she's a real creative force at the top of her game here! Tracks include "No Love, No Where, Without You", "Oh Honey", "Loving You Forever", and the great groover "Elevate Our Minds", which is worth the price of the record alone! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Various500 Atlantic R&B & Soul Singles Vol 1 – 1964/1965 ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
Think you know the sound of Atlantic Records in the 60s? Think again – because this stunning series opens the vault to a huge amount of rare treasures from the legendary label! The package is amazing – and offers up rare tracks that were mostly only issued by Atlantic on singles – including some on the other imprints associated with the company – some by names we never even knew recorded for the label, others by bigger names, but represented here by obscure material that goes way past their hits – and which is ultra cool because of that. There's also a fair bit more deep soul than you might expect from the usual Atlantic mix – tremendous vocals, and often in less hit-heavy modes – which makes the whole thing a great revelation – and just one more reason to bow down and give even more expect to one of the key companies who helped soul music find a home in the 60s. Plus – as if that's not enough – the whole thing comes in a very cool 7" gatefold package – which emphasizes the from-singles nature of the collection. First volume features 50 great tracks that include "Baby Girl (part 1)" by Titus Turner, "Please Don't Leave Me" by The Drapels, "That's The Way That It Goes" by Bobby Marchan, "Mary Lou You Can Do The Bumble Bee" by Deanie Parker, "Gotta Find A Way" by Theresa Lindsay, "One More Chance" by Doris Troy, "Daddy Woo Woo" by The Vibrations, "Slumber Party" by The Van Dells, "Someday We're Gonna Love Again" by Barbara Lewis, "Reconsider Baby" by Al King, "Shake Up" by The Cobras, "Uh Oh I'm In Love Again" by Eddie Jefferson, "That's When It Hurts" by Ben E King, "Don't Make Something Out Of Nothing" by William Bell, "You Never Know How Much I Love You" by Oscar Mack, "Closer To My Baby" by Dorothy Williams, "The Last Girl" by The Isley Brothers, "Don't Leave Me" by The Crume Brothers, "Bashful Guitar" by Johnny Jenkins, "Take The Boy Out Of The Country" by Linda Jones, "I'm Gonna Run Away From You" by Tami Lynn, "Wild One" by The Coasters, "Yes I Do" by Solomon Burke, "Something In My Eye" by Music City Soul Brothers, "Young Man" by The Drapels, "Watchdog" by Dorothy Williams, "Romance In The Dark" by Jimmy Ricks, "Please Be Honest With Me" by Barbara & The Browns, "I'm Taking Back My Love" by Linda Jones, "Young & Foolish" by Wendy Rene, "My Girl Sloopy" by The Vibrations, "I Want To Get Married" by Rufus Thomas, "I Left There Running Because Walking Was Much Too Slow" by Chuck Bradford, and "Big Party" by Barbara & The Browns.

✨✧ VariousNorthern Soul – The Collection – The Ultimate Northern Soul Anthems (3CD set) ... CD
Warner (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $11.99 12.99
Maybe not the ultimate Northern Soul collection – you'd need a room full of CDs for that – but a pretty wonderful collection of upbeat 60s soul groovers pulled from the vaults of Warner Brothers and Atlantic Records! The 3CD set features a whopping 85 tracks in all – and most of them are rare cuts, even the ones by some of the bigger names – so that the whole thing really goes way past the obvious, and delivers surprise after surprise over the course of the long listening if has to offer! There's plenty of soul nuggets here that we haven't seen elsewhere on CD – and titles include "A Last Minute Miracle" by Linda Jones, "Baby Help Me" by Percy Sledge, "Call On Me" by The Dynells, "Walkin Up A One Way Street" by Willie Tee, "After Closing Time" by Hal Frazier, "This Beautiful Day" by Levi Jackson, "If You Ask Me" by Jerry Williams, "Mr Creator" by The Apollas, "Seven Days Too Long" by Chuck Wood, "Dance Dance Dance" by The Casualeers, "Can't Help Lovin Dat Man" by Ila Vann, "Skiing In The Snow" by The Invitations, "Teardrops Are Falling" by Little Natalie & Henry, "Bar B Q" by Wendy Rene, "Yes To The Lord" by The Stovall Sisters, "Change My Darkness Into Light" by The Flirtations, "It Hurts Me" by David & Ruben, "Livin In Love" by Sheila Anthony, "Please Operator" by Tony & Tyrone, and "Tell Me Why" by Life".

✨✧ Rita WrightTouch Me Take Me/Love Is All You Need ... 7-inch
Soul Brother (UK), 1978. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic funky cut from Rita Wright – one that has a great break at the start, then slides into a seductive blend of keyboards, strings, and soul, all while keeping the break riding high at the bottom! "Love Is All You Need" is more full-on funky soul – the kind of cut you might hear from Linda Williams or Marlena Shaw! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousMainstream Modern Soul 2 – 1969 to 1976 ... CD
Mainstream/Kent (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic soul from Mainstream Records – an imprint that's normally best-known for their work in the field of jazz, but a label that also cut some killer soul singles in the early 70s! Mainstream soul artists almost never got a chance to record a full-length album – so over the years, this soul legacy has been somewhat lost in the shifting sands of time (and shifting piles of funky 45s) – which makes this collection a much-needed resurrection of that material – especially when given the ultra-hip, extra-level presentation of the Kent label! The CD features 23 great tunes from these years – some of them in the modern soul mode promised in the title, lots more in kind of a hip funky soul approach – very early 70s New York, with righteous themes mixed with more familiar soul styles – all set to impeccable instrumentation. Titles include "Oh My Love" by Almeta Latimore, "Come Back With Your Love (part 1)" by Special Delivery, "Grass Ain't Greener" by Charles Beverly, "Love Bug" by Sugar Billy, "You'll Do It" by Calvin Arnold, "I'll Never Trust Love Again" by McArthur, "You've Got A Lot To Give" by Chocolate Syrup, "I'll Never Be The Same (part 1)" by Chapter Three, "I've Been Trying To Love You" by Lenny McDaniel & The Last Nikle, "Slow Down World" by Charles Colbert, "Everyone Has Someone" by Linda Perry, "Your Love Is Like A Rising Sun" by Steptones, "Let Her Know" by Bobby Earl Williams, "Please Don't Set Me Free" by Jeany Reynolds, and "Today Or Never" by Eleventh Commandment.

✨✧ VariousMainstream Modern Soul – 1969 to 1976 ... CD
Kent/Mainstream (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.
