✨✧ Magic Disco MachineDisc O Tech ... LP
Motown, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Nice little record! Although the album looks like a throwaway album of faceless disco music – it's actually a pretty good batch of strange funky tracks, many with weird little arrangements and strange instrumentation. The highlight is the break classic "Scratchin", which has good hard drums and some very strange horns! Other tracks include the moogy "Trying To Get Over", plus "Window Shopping", "Control Tower", "Jumbo Sam", and "Love Pains". Features work by James Carmichael, The Sisters Love, Freddie Perren, and Clayton Ivey. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a large name in marker, some pen, and a cutout notch. Labels have some pen.)

✨✧ Nat Dove & The DevilsPetey Wheatstraw ... LP
Magic Disc/Dolemite, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the funkiest blacksploitation soundtracks of the 70s – a rare indie gem from Nat Dove & The Devils! Dove's got a style that's a lot rougher and rootsier than other soundtrack artists of the 70s – an approach that's more based in the modes of the indie funk underground of the time, and less in the more polished studio funk you'd find on bigger film releases. The grit in the grooves is wonderfully welcome here – and it's a quality that really sets this one apart from the pack, and keeps it in heavy rotation over the years! Most of the tracks on here are instrumentals, and a few of the cuts have vocals by Mary Love – and titles include "Joy", "Petey Wheatstraw", "Steve's Den", Junkie Chase", "Zombie March", "Ghetto Street USA", and "Loving You".

Mike WestbrookMarching Song Volumes 1 & 2 (3CD set – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Deram/Turbo (UK), 1969. Used 3 CDs ... $13.99
The brilliant third album from Mike Westbrook – a sharp-edged, two volume set with a scathing anti-war theme! The work is Westbrook's first total-concept album, and it's still one of his best – written with an edge that's free from some of the more whimsical touches that showed up in Mike's later years, and played by a core group of British avant soloists with searing intensity! You've never heard large group scoring like this – bold, ambitious, and quite different than most of what's come before. And although the whole thing sounds as if it's going to fall apart at any moment, it always snaps back into a sharp focus just in the nick of time – with brilliant results that bring the same sense of surprise that you might get from, say, a classic album from Charles Mingus or Archie Shepp! Players include Kenny Wheeler and Henry Lowther on trumpets, Mike Gibbs and Paul Rutherford on trombones, John Surman on baritone and soprano sax, Mike Osborne on alto and clarinet, Alan Skidmore on tenor and flute, Brian Smith on tenor, and Harry Miller and Barre Phillips on bass. This set features both volumes of the recording – with titles that include "Landscape", "Hooray", "Other World", "Marching Song", "Transition", "Rosie", "Tension", "Ballad", "Conflict", and "Requiem". Great 3CD set features a full bonus disc of rare material – including the 7" single of "Original Peter" and "Magic Garden" – 1970 recordings of "But It Must Get Better & It Will Get Better" and "When Young" by The Mike Westbrook Quartet, and a 1966 recording of "Marching Song" by the Mike Westbrook Sextet – the last three of which have never been released!

✨✧ John Carter TrioEchoes From Rudolph's (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ibedon/No Business (Lithuania), 1977. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real lost chapter of 70s genius from reedman John Carter – a set done after his better-known recordings with Bobby Bradford, in a style that's much more spacious overall! The material features a trio – with Carter on both soprano sax and clarinet, both instruments he plays with an incredible dexterity and sensitivity in sound – much looser and more open to sudden shifts of inspiration than his music with Bradford – with accompaniment from Stanley Carter on bass and William Jeffrey on drums and percussion! The style is free, but never indulgently so – and Carter finds this way to always reach for melodic moments even at his most intense – creating the kind of magic that few other musicians might with his instruments. Titles include "Echoes From Rudolph's", "To A Fallen Poppy", "The Last Sunday", "Armin", and "Angles". 2CD set adds in a whole disc of extra material from the trio – with a 19 minute "Echoes From Rudolphs/To A Fallen Poppy", and a very long stretch of different improvised passages!

✨✧ VariousDJ Andy Smith Presents Reach Up – Disco Wonderland ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer set of rare club and underground disco – filled with lots of tracks we haven't seen on other collections! Andy Smith has given us many amazing compilations over the years – sets that have a special mix magic, made up of rocksteady, reggae, vintage funk, and even some rockabilly too! Yet as Andy says here in the notes, he first got hooked on music in the disco generation – and has always had a life-long love of unusual and underground grooves – which he definitely demonstrates here, in a stunning selection of cuts that focus on the funkier side of the disco generation – with a good number of tracks that have turned out to be sample cuts over the years. Titles include "For The Love Of Money" by Disco Dub Band, "Patty Duke" by Cloud One, "Times Are Tight" by Jimmy Young, "Share The Night" by World Premiere, "Is It In" by Jimmy Bo Horne, "Let It Flow" by Tamiko Jones, "Main Thing" by Shot with Kim Marsh, "Give It Up" by Neddy Smith, "Groove To Get Down" by T-Connection, "Holding You Tight (ext DJ mix)" by Sure Thing, "First True Love Affair (Andy Smith & Nick Halke reach up edit)" by Jimmy Ross, "Got To Have You (Whiskey Barons re-edit)" by Joanne Wilson, "I Wanna Be Myself" by Don Laka, "Get Up & Boogie" by Freedom, and "Take Me To The Top" by Advance. 2CD version features all tracks unmixed on one disc, and a special mix on the other!

✨✧ VariousSuper Breaks – Return To The Old School – Classic Breaks & Beats From The Birth Of Hip Hop ... LP
BGP (UK), New Copy 2 LPs ... $21.99 22.98
A damn classic entry in the Super Breaks series from BGP – one that's filled with crucial sample cuts from the old school – some really wonderful funky nuggets, brought together here as a great reminder of the tracks that first got us digging back in the day! There's less of the totally obscure numbers here than you might find on other Super Breaks volumes, but things aren't totally mainstream either – and the compilers have not only done a great job of pulling together tracks that were really important for hip hop, but have also managed to put a really fresh spin on the music altogether – reminding us once again that even in the age of digital music, nothing beats a well-done compilation! Titles include "Shifting Gears" by Johnny Hammond, "Mary Mary" by The Monkees, "Scratchin" by Magic Disco Machine, "It's Just Begun" by Jimmy Castor, "Africano" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Apache" by Incredible Bongo Band, "Got To Get A Knutt" by New Birth, "Get Up & Dance" by Freedom, "Super Sporm" by Captain Sky, "Who Is He & What Is He To You" by Creative Source, "Funky President" by James Brown, "Blow Your Head" by The JBs, "Johnny The Fox" by Thin Lizzy, "Let A Woman Be A Woman Let A Man Be A Man" by Dyke & The Blazers, "The Clapping Song" by Shirley Ellis, and "Get Ya Some" by Melvin Sparks.

Laura NyroLittle Magic A Little Kindness – The Complete Mono Albums Collection (More Than A New Discovery/Eli & The Thirteenth Confession/bonus track ... CD
Columbia/Real Gone, Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.99
Two full early albums from Laura Nyro – both presented here in their rare mono mixes, with bonus tracks too! First up is More Than A New Discovery – Laura Nyro's first album ever! Even at this early point, Nyro sounds wonderful – a fair bit more soulful than most other female pop singers of her time – with a fully-fleshed out approach to the vocals that's mature and sensitive, and almost a bit more confident at times than in later years. Arrangements are by Herb Bernstein, and almost have the same sort of sunny feel as The 5th Dimension in their famous covers of Nyro's tunes – again with more soul than we might have expected for the time. Titles include "Lazy Susan", "Stoney End", "Flim Flam Man", "Buy & Sell", "He's A Runner", "Billy's Blues", and "Wedding Bell Blues". Eli & The Thirteenth Confession is groundbreaking work from Laura Nyro – exactly the kind of record that sums up the unique genius in her music! The record's not folk, not pop, not soul, nor jazz vocals – but a new sort of style that draws a bit from all those genres, and comes up with a bold new approach that opened the door for countless other female singers in years to come. Despite the fame of the record, and many attempts to copy its genius over the years, Nyro is completely without cliche here – unique in her approach and presentation of the material, and as personally possessed as she is fragile and introspective. Arrangements are by Charlie Calello, and really get the spirit of the tunes right – and titles include "Luckie", "Lonely Women", "Emmie", "Timer", "Eli's Comin", "December's Boudouir", "Stoned Soul Picnic", "Woman's Blues", and "Once It Was Alright Now". Bonus tracks include "Stone End (single version with alt lyrics)", "Eli's Comin (single version)", and "Save The Country (single version)". CD

✨✧ T-ConnectionOn Fire/Disco Magic ... 12-inch
TK, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
Clubby funk from T-Connection – the title track to their TK album On Fire, served up here in a 7 minute version! The track's got plenty of tightly-crafted rhythms on the bottom, and a lot more sheer raw instrumental power than most other disco tracks of the time – especially on the keyboards and guitar, which riff out heavily during the tune. "Disco Magic" is a bit more conventional club, but still quite nice – especially since the cut features lots of moogy keyboards! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Nazia HassanDisco Deewane ... CD
Subah Zindagi (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $12.99
A disco album with a difference – given that the set was recorded in London by young Pakistani singer Nazia Hassan, and produced and arranged by Biddu – the man who gave the world the famous Biddu Orchestra records in the 70s! There's definitely grooves here that reflect Biddu's other work, but the presence of such a strong lead singer really gives the record a different vibe – and together, the pair make for surprising magic that stands apart both from American disco and some of the more famous Indian pop material of the time! The record was a surprising global hit upon release, and still sounds pretty darn great after all these years – with titles that include "Dil Mera", "Aao Na", "Disco Deewane", "Komal", "Mujhay Chahay", "Gaein Milkar", and "Leykin Mera Dil".

Stanley JordanMagic Touch ... LP
Blue Note, 1985. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A crucial album for the jazz guitar in the 80s – the debut effort of Stanley Jordan, and a set that exploded with a very fresh sound! Jordan has a really unique way of handling his instrument – playing up and down the fret board with both hands – in ways that are often so lyrically compelling and musically complicated that Blue Note had to package the album with a "warning" that there were no overdubs or production tricks on the set – as you might find from other contemporary players on labels like ECM! Instead, Stanley's got a sound that's surprisingly warm and personal – and which, in a way, is recorded with a style that echoes the legend of his initial discovery by the label, while playing in the subway. Titles include "A Child Is Born", "Fundance", "Angel", "The Lady In My Life", "Round Midnight", and "Eleanor Rigby". LP, Vinyl record album

Bunny Lee & The Aggrovators/Tommy McCookSuper Dub Disco Style (with bonus tracks)/Super Star Disco Rockers ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
Don't think "disco" as in the New York scene at Studio 54 – as these cuts are much deeper and dubbier – served up under the supervision of Bunny Lee by studio maestros Barnabas and Pat Kelly! Instrumentation is by the Aggrovators, but the magic comes equally from the production effects as it does from the massive rhythms by the group – as all the elements are filtered out in space, and criss-cross back and forth in this wonderful way – never too sloppy or experimental, but definitely tripping out with the groove! Vocals are muted when they do make an appearance – and titles include "The Aggrovators Special Dub", "Money In My Pocket Dub", "Portobello Special Dub", "Super Rockers Dub", "The Bomb Dub", "The Killer Dub", and "The Dub Specialist". Also features bonus tracks "Dubber's Delight", "Dub Vendors Choice", and "Man Never Imitate Always Originate". 2CD package also features the wonderful Super Star Disco Rockers from saxophonist Tommy McCook – an artist you'll know from important Jamaican recordings from the late 60s onward – but who's really hitting some headier territory here! The tunes are all instrumental, and have very dubby rhythms at the core – yet while the other instrumentation is often mixed up in studio effects, Tommy's lead solos are mostly nice and clear – blown with a much sharper edge than in earlier years, and often given these exotic tones too – a very cool style that really makes the album stand out from other dub instrumental albums of the time! There's some great currents of soul that almost make McCook work here as the Jamaican equivalent of Stanley Turrentine or Hank Crawford on their mid 70s recordings – and titles include "Herb & Honey", "Macka Dub Rock", "Tommy's Rocking Vibration", "The Night Rose Of Sherron", "African Jumpers", "The Bionic Horn", and "Roots Of Africa". Also features the bonus tracks "Kojack" and "Cannon". CD

One Line BandYellow Magic ... CD
Victor (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $24.99
A great little fusion combo from the Japanese scene of the 70s – one of those unique groups that manage to hit a sound that's equally appealing from an American soul perspective too! The cream of the crop of the overseas fusion players were often leaning heavily on American R&B at the time – creating a wonderful blend, ala The Crusaders, in which jazz solos soar out from some warmer soulful grooves – which they do beautifully on this set! The track's got some wickedly tight arrangements, and lyrics that are used to spice up the tunes next to riffing guitars and sweet keyboards – never overwhelming, but blending with the jazzy instrumentation in a really great way. A few other groups of this scene had a bigger global crossover impact, but that's also what makes One Line Band such a great discovery – especially on some of the tunes that feature Japanese lyrics, instead of English. Titles include "Cold Wind", "In The Movement", "You're The Only One", and "Mr M". CD

Malvina ReynoldsLittle Boxes & Magic Pennies – An Anthology Of Children's Songs 1960 to 1977 ... CD
Iron Mountain Analog Research/Omni (Australia), 1960/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.98
A long-overdue collection of the really special, really unusual songs written and sung by Malvina Reynolds – one of the strangest talents to emerge from the 60s, partly because her age was in the same range as the decade! Reynolds had long been a force on the political left on the west coast scene – but it wasn't until later in life that she started writing songs – and did a surprisingly great job, thanks to a pointed wit, and a no-nonsense approach that often made her songs as sweet as they were biting! Even when serving up songs for kids, as she does here, there's kind of a darker vision behind the music – one that seeks to open minds as much as charm them. Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, and others recorded her music – but nobody sings it better than Malvina herself – as you'll hear on this collection of tracks that mostly includes early 70s sides for the Century City, Pacific Cascade, and Cassandra labels – as well as tracks from her 1960 "discovery" album on Folkways. Titles include the classic "Little Boxes" – used famously on the show Weeds – plus "Artichokes", "The Pets", "Morningtown Ride", "Sweet Stuff", "Little Birds", "Magical Food", "The Whale", "Turn Around", "Never Touch A Singing Bird", "My Street", "I Live In A City", "One Shoe", "Funny Big Basin", "Black Horse", "Don't Push Me", and "It's Up To You".

✨✧ SpaceMagic Fly ... LP
United Artists, 1977. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Legendary cosmic disco from Space – a group who really live up to their name with a trippy use of electronics and keyboards over clubby rhythms! The album's a landmark from the time when previous prog ideals were finding a great new space in the discos – and although a few cuts here are upbeat and groovy, there's also some mellower, more spacey moments too – all a great showcase for the group's leader, keyboardist Didier Marouani! The record played big on both sides of the fence, on both sides of the Atlantic – and continues to win over new generations with its futuristic grooves. In addition to the big title cut "Magic Fly", other tracks include "Velvet Rape", "Tango In Space", "Fasten Seat Belt", and "Ballad For Space Lovers". LP, Vinyl record album

An incredible collection – and one that fills in a crucially under-documented side of the New York dancefloor generation – the wealth of special mixes and edits that were made for that city's important DJs for their own use in clubs! The package sorts through a mountain of never-issued acetates, and goes way past conventional disco or rare club collections – to showcase the special mixing talents these DJs brought to their re-presentation of the material – which was usually done on tape, then pressed onto acetate discs for their own private use! Those rare treasures are brought forth here – in a beautiful package that's also overflowing with fantastic notes that finally give this lost history its due – all handled by Al Kent – who's a hell of a mixer himself, as well as an underground club historian. Vinyl part 1 features five different records, all with lots of space for the tunes to stretch out – and titles include "I Just Wanna Say I Love You (John Luongo rmx)" by Leon Collins, "What About Love (Tony Gioe rmx)" by Marboo, "Ten Percent (Walter Gibbons Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Double Exposure, "Inside America (Rick Gianatos disco queen acetate edit)" by Juggy Murray Jones, "Dancing Free (John Luongo rmx)" by Hot Ice, "Black Water Gold (Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by The Sunshine Band, "Magic Bird Of Fire (Francois Kevorkian Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "It's Good For The Soul (Jay Negron Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "My Love Is Free (Walter Gibbons disco madness rmx)" by Double Exposure, "Reaching Out For Happiness (Jonathan Fearing rmx)" by Fay Hauser, "Let Me Be Your Fantasy (Tom Savarese rmx)" by Love Symphony Orchestra, "The Beat Goes On & On (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Ripple, "I Wanna Be Near You (John Morales Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Ruby Andrews, "I've Been Looking For Somebody (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, "The Disco Scene (Rick Gianatos rmx)" by Lake Shore Drive, "Bumpsie's Whipping Cream (Tom Savarese rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, and "Janice (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Skip Mahoney.

Salsoul, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Ahhhh . . . The Salsoul Orchestra at its finest, with Vince Montana at the helm, crafting some superb arrangements that have all of the positivity of the best funky club groove that made the group great – without any of the disco schlock of their contemporaries! The group's format is still head and shoulders above most of its imitators here – a perfect balance of larger orchestrations and tighter rhythms for the club – handled with all the best Philly elements that Montana brings to play. Titles include the superb soul track "Run Away", which features excellent lead vocals by Loleatta Holloway – one of her best tracks ever – and other instrumental titles include the funky "Getaway", plus "Magic Bird Of Fire", "It's A New Day", and "Alpha Centuri".

The instrumentation is mindblowing – impeccable guitar and basslines, set to snapping rhythms that really capture the best Miami funk mode before smoother disco took over – especially impressive on the longer tracks on the set! The whole thing's great – more like a pile of fast funky 45s than the usual disco record – and titles include the long "Do What You Wanna Do", plus "Disco Magic", "Got To See My Lady", "Peace Line", "Monday Morning", and "Mothers Love".

✨✧ Blue MagicBlue Magic/Magic Of The Blue ... CD
Atco/Playback, 1974. New Copy 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
A pair of classics from Blue Magic – brought together in a single set! First up is the self-titled Blue Magic – the start of a tremendous run from Blue Magic – easily one of the greatest harmony groups of the 70s, a quintet we'd place in a rare class with heavy hitters like The Stylistics or The Moments! The album's smooth and sweet, but never slick – perfectly arranged by the great Norman Harris, who makes the vocals sound equally great on mellow tracks and uptempo numbers – setting a new Philly standard with the album, and one that few other groups could match so well! Every piece of the core 70s Philly harmony sound is in place here – from the near-perfect (but wonderfully human) vocals of the group, to the full yet subtle backings by Sigma players who include Vince Montana, Earl Young, Bobby Eli, and Harris himself – and if you've ever needed a record to prove the genius of the east coast harmony sound, this may well be it! Titles include "Look Me Up", "What's Come Over Me", "Tear It Down", "Sideshow", "Stop To Start", "Welcome To The Club", and "Just Don't Want To Be Lonely". Magic Of The Blue is pure east coast magic all the way through! The group still manage to keep the fragile quality that made their first work so great, but they've also got a wonderfully confident approach too – using arrangements from Norman Harris, Bobby Eli, and Vince Montana to soar with a Philly proudness that's totally great – never disco or club, but with a full, rich quality that's totally great. Tracks include their big hit "Three Ring Circus", a nice follow-up to the earlier "Sideshow", and other titles include "Let Me Be The One", "Looking For A Friend", "When Ya Coming Home", and "You Won't Have To Tell Me Goodbye".

Fantastic FourGot To Have Your Love/BYOF (Bring Your Own Funk) ... CD
Westbound (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A pair of albums from this overlooked Detroit soul group – back to back on a single CD! On Got To Have Your Love, Fantastic Four are a hell of a harmony group – and one who still hold strong through this second chapter of their career – by avoiding any of the cheaper cliches of some of the groups of the disco generation! Instead, the album focuses on their vocals first, and any sort of grooves second – which makes for some wonderful mellower cuts that really follow the spirit of some of the hippest 70s group soul from Chicago or the east coast – followed by a few upbeat tracks that get handling by Tom Moulton at Sigma Sound in Philly! The balance is great – almost more like some of the best group sides from a few years before, especially Blue Magic – and the ballads really take center stage, and blow us away with the group's deeper currents of soul. Titles include "Mixed Up Moods & Attitudes", "There's Fire Down Below", "I Got To Have Your Love", "She'll Be Right For Me", "Cash Money", and "Disco Pool Blues". On BYOF, the Fantastic Four definitely bring their own funk – thanks to tight help from arranger Dennis Coffey, who also produced the set with a heavy groove that's like his own work of the time! The basslines are stronger than before for the FF – but their harmonies are very firmly intact – and, if anything, the blend of funk and great vocals really makes the album a charmer right from the get-go – especially as they aim more for midtempo steppers than too-upbeat disco tunes that might have them losing some of their charm. The overall vibe is maybe more 1974 than 1978 – and titles include "I Just Want To Love Ya Baby", "BYOF", "Cold & Windy Night", "Sexy Lady", "Shout", "Super Lover", and "Realize". CD

GundellaHour Of The Witch (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Modern Harmonic, Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
One of the creepiest albums we've ever heard – vintage recordings of Gundella, a Detroit-based, self-proclaimed witch – and one who actually received quite a bit of notoriety back in the day! Gundella's voice is very down to earth – she sounds as she looks on the cover, maybe like someone's distant great aunt – but she's also got this complete confidence in her words, and speaks them without any sense of pretense or "acting" at all – which brings a very chilling vibe to the album, as she talks openly and frankly about casting spells and performing magic – as well as her role as a modern-day witch! Backing is mostly by moody organ, performed in haunting swirls – almost like Korla Pandit – and the set may well be of a spooky classic than the Seduction Through Witchcraft album by Louise Huebner. Titles include "Gundella Tells You How To Cast A Spell", "Spell To Make A Woman Love You", "The Seven Knob Candle", "Spell To Make A Man Love You", and "Spell To Discourage An Unwanted Suitor". Sounds like she's got all the bases covered! LP, Vinyl record album

Main IngredientRolling Down A Mountainside/Music Maximus ... CD
RCA/Expansion (UK), 1975/1976. New Copy ... $14.99
Double greatness from The Main Ingredient – two full albums on a single CD! Rolling Down A Mountainside is mid 70s magic from The Main Ingredient – a set that has the trio working with even more sophistication than on previous records, yet still holding onto all the harmonies that always made them great! Cuba Gooding's lead is wonderful – rich and full of feeling, and slinking nicely over arrangements from Rene Hall and Bert DeCoteaux, both of whom bridge the simpler styles of earlier work with some of the deeper ideas going down in soul music at the time. The title track is a killer a wonderful spacey soul track with sweeping arrangements and some weird moogy bits in the background – perfect for the group's sweet style, and a complicated captivating number that pushes past the formula of their earlier hits. The rest of the album follows with equally compelling modes – and titles include "Rolling Down A Mountainside", "Thanks For The Laughs", "That Ain't My Style", "Family Man", "I Want To Make You Glad", and "The Good Old Days". Music Maximus is wicked work from The Main Ingredient – a set that's even fuller and funkier than before, yet still a perfect setting for the tremendous harmonies of the trio! The "Roman orgy" cover makes this one look like it might be more of a disco effort – but the overall sound is a sweet mix of modern soul grooves, tight funky charts, and some deeper ideas that are arranged wonderfully by Leon Pendarvis and Lou Courtney. The approach is possibly most like Courtney's own great albums of the time – rooted in a respect for older soul styles, yet really able to open up to new ideas too – and the album features a great funky version of Leon Ware's "Instant Love", plus the tracks "Car Of Love", "Many Women In My Life", "Half A Chance", "I Gotta Know You", "Can't Get Ready For Losing You", and "Who You Really Are".
