Aziza Miller (Linda Williams)Journey Of Love ... CD
Street Jam Groove, 2016. New Copy ... $12.99
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)... $9.99
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

Rita WrightTouch Me Take Me/Love Is All You Need ... 7-inch
Soul Brother (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $8.99
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

VariousGirls Girls Girls – A Recollection Of Dream Dates 1955 to 1965 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
A bit of a gimmick, but a great one at that – an entire CD made up of girl-themed tunes – some of them hits, some of them obscure little gems from the end of the 50s and the start of the 60s! The package mixes together equal parts rock, pop, soul, and R&B – and features both hits and misses in all genres, supported by wonderful notes penned by Billy Vera – with more than enough justification for the inclusion of each track on the CD! 28 tracks in all – with titles that include "Hello Mary Lou Goodbye Heart" by Gene Pitney, "Plain Jane" by Bobby Darin, "Lilly Maebelle" by The Valentines, "Oh Carol" by Neil Sedaka, "Cindy Oh Cindy" by The Tarriers, "Isabella" by Roy Tann, "Jo-Ann" by The Twin-Tones, "Baby's Crazy" by Larry Williams, "Jamie" by Eddie Holland, "Lilly Lou" by Fabian, "Anna" by Arthur Alexander, "Jeannie Jeannie Jeannie" by Eddie Cochran, "Blanche" by The 3 Friends, "Linda" by Jan & Dean, "Nadine" by Chuck Berry, and "Midnight Mary" by Jerry Cole.

VariousLadies Of Detroit Sound Vol 1 ... CD
Bar, 1960s. Used ... $4.99
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.

Warner (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
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".
