VariousGirls Girls Girls – A Recollection Of Dream Dates 1955 to 1965 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 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.

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.

✨✧ Richard EvansRichard Evans ... CD
Horizon (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the few albums as a leader by Chicago Soul genius Richard Evans – a key late 70s effort that perfectly sums up all his genius on record for countless other artists! The album's got a warm, smooth groove that's totally great – one that builds tremendously from the sophisticated soul advances on the Chicago scene of the 70s – and which features bits of jazz, soul, and even Brazilian influences gliding wonderfully through the mix! There's a sense of pride, power, and confidence here that graces every single number – and in a way, the album's almost like a Quincy Jones effort from the same stretch – with Evans' showcasing a new side of his talents, and his collaborators, on every different number. Linda Williams sings vocals on the groovy "Capricorn Rising", Eddie Harris plays on "Do Re Me For Soul", Billy Durham sings on "Windy City", Tower Of Power guest on "Educated Funk", and the group offers up a remake of Evans' Soulful Strings classic "Burning Spear".

✨✧ Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of FriendsFull Circle (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Now Sounds (UK), 2007. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful return to form for Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of Friends – working here in the same sublime space they hit on their one and only album for A&M Records in the 60s! The style here is somewhat more modern – but still mostly 70s-styled, as opposed to contemporary – and in a way, Nichols and the group hit some of the warmer modes that groups like Free Design or Singers Unlimited were using at the start of the 70s. All tunes are originals by Roger, most penned with his early songwriting partner Paul Williams – and the vocals by Nichols, Murray MacLeod, and Melinda MacLeod are presented with some great light instrumentation – mostly keyboards, guitar, and bass from Roger himself. We're surprised at how much we like this one – and instead of thinking of it as an album recorded 40 years after the group's debut, we'd rather like to think of it as a "lost" session from the early 70s – because that's the way it sounds overall! Titles include "The Winner's Theme", "I Kept On Loving You", "Let Me Be The One", "Out In The Country", "You're Foolin Nobody", "Always You", "I'm Comin To The Best Part Of My Life", "Look Around", "I'm Gonna Find Her", "Talk It Over In The Morning", and "Watching You". CD also fetaures 5 bonus tracks too – unreleased demo versions of tracks on the album! CD
