Marvin GayeI Want You ... CD
Motown, 1976. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
An incredible record – quite possibly our favorite ever by Marvin Gaye! The album is quite unique – written by Leon Ware, and recorded in collaboration with him – done as a "suite" of tracks based on themes of passion, joy, and new love – all of which were very much on the mind of Marvin during his troubled years of the mid 70s. The whole thing's beautifully put together – superbly orchestrated with just the right funky touches, and even a sweet bit of electronics to give the set a nice edge. An amazing album – one of those soul records that goes deeper and deeper than you ever thought pop music could go – filled with great tracks that include "I Want You", "After the Dance", "Come Live With Me", and "Since I Had You". Genius – pure genius! CD

Marvin GayeTrouble Man ... CD
Motown, 1972. New Copy ... $4.99 11.98
Marvin Marvin Marvin – just when we thought you couldn't impress us any more, you took it to the next level! Trouble Man is a heck of a wonderful surprise from an artist that most folks really only knew as a singer – a fantastically funky blacksploitation soundtrack, conceived and composed by Marvin himself – and served up with some occasional vocals that work beautifully with the album's cool instrumental grooves! The set's easily one of Gaye's most righteous records ever – almost a second chapter to What's Going On, but more instrumental – and like that classic set, it really shows the whole new range of vision that Marvin was able to work in the studio. Gaye gets a bit of arranging help on some tracks from Gene Page and JJ Johnson – and the album's filled with great cuts – including the landmark "T Plays It Cool", plus other gems like "Don't Mess With Mister T", "Main Theme From Trouble Man", "The Break In", and "T Stands For Trouble". Very funky, very sophisticated, and very soulful! CD

Marvin GayeVulnerable – Motown Master Series ... CD
Motown, 1978/1979. Used ... $9.99
A posthumous masterpiece from Marvin Gaye – a beautiful album of mellow ballads that's unlike anything else he ever recorded in the 70s! The project was originally begun in 1967, when Gaye worked with arranger Bobby Scott on charts for a series of adult ballads – arrangements that were more mature and sophisticated than some of the previous standards and ballads that Gaye cut for Motown – with a track selection to match. The notes here are a bit vague on dates, but it seems that this final release of the project is compiled from original sessions from the time, and later vocal performances from the 70s – a really compelling blend of sounds, and one that has the aging Marvin sounding really amazing – all of the sex and sophistication of the What's Going On/I Want You generation, but presented with a bit more subtlety. A true treasure all the way through – with titles that include "Why Did I Choose You", "She Needs Me", "This Will Make You Laugh", "Funny Not Much", "I Wish I Didn't Love You So", "I Won't Cry Any More", and "The Shadow Of Your Smile". CD

Marvin GayeWhat's Going On (expanded edition) ... CD
Motown, 1971. New Copy ... $4.99 5.98
One of the few cases in the history of pop music where the record is worth all the hype! Marvin blew everyone's mind when he unleashed this amazing suite of political soul tunes – not only just because he'd moved past the simple love songs of earlier years, but also because he was working with an amazingly complicated approach to soul music, one that would touch the work of others for years to come. David Van DePitte arranged and conducted the whole album – with soaring orchestrations mixed with smooth modern soul, in a style that reminds us a lot of the work of Charles Stepney at Cadet, who'd been doing this sort of thing for years but with less success. In the hands of Marvin Gaye, though, the material has an amazing quality – and all the disparate elements of the album are fused together in one powerful message by Marvin's incredible voice. One that we never tire of, and a record to be listened to all the way through every time. Titles include "What's Goin On", "Save The Children", "Flyin High (In The Friendly Sky)", "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)", and "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)". This expanded edition includes the B-side tracks "God Is Love" and "Sad Tomorrow". CD

VariousJazz Club – Jazz Loves Marvin Gaye ... CD
Jazzclub (Germany), 1970s. New Copy ... $8.99
Jazz loves Marvin Gaye – and we do too! Guess that makes us the perfect folks to rave about how wonderful this set is – a killer collection of 70s jazz funk numbers that pays homage to the great one – offering up instrumental versions of grooves originally recorded by Marvin for Motown – taking the tunes way past their original renderings with loads of sweet instrumental touches! There's still plenty of soul in the mix – given that most numbers here are done in an electrified fusion mode – and a few even feature some slight chorus vocals, too. Titles include "You Sure Love To Ball" by The JBs, "What's Going On" by Quincy Jones, "I Want You" by Gato Barbieri, "Distant Lover" by David Newman, "Don't Mess With Mr T" by Regina Carter, "When Did You Stop Loving Me" by Mongo Santamaria, "Inner City Blues" by Phil Upchurch, and "Trouble Man" by Grover Washington Jr. CD

Leon BridgesComing Home ... CD
Columbia, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99
An album with a very classic look on the cover – and an equally classic sound to match – one that takes us back to some of the hippest, coolest work by early 60s singers like Sam Cooke or Marvin Gaye! Both artists are a good comparison here, as Leon Bridges is unabashedly in the same territory – cool, classy, yet undeniably soulful – at this level that never has to overstate itself, or try too hard to reach for facile funky parts, or any kind of party-moving sort of vibe. Leon's vocals are wonderful – clearly born to sing music this great – and the backings are a nice change from the usual retro soul modes, and instead have this deep soul vibe that's perfectly captured in a Texas small studio setting. Titles include "Better Man", "Brown Skin Girl", "Lisa Sawyer", "Pull Away", "Flower", and "Twistin & Groovin". CD

Lou CourtneyI'm In Need Of Love ... CD
Epic/Soul Brother (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $14.99
A wonderful album of mellow soul tracks! The record is Lou Courtney's masterpiece – and it's a jam-packed set filled with great tracks that rank right up there with classic 70s work by artists like Marvin Gaye, Leroy Hutson, or Leon Ware! Leon Pendarvis handled most of the arrangements – and the record's got a wonderfully full soul sound – with a mix of moody keyboard-driven groovers and ballads – all topped by excellent vocals from Lou, miles ahead of any work he did in the early days! The best thing, though, is the songwriting, as these tracks rank right up there with the best underground mellow soul we can think of – sophisticated yet not soppy, filled with soulful lyrics about love and losing it, never giving into cliches of other soul from the time. A real dream of an album – and filled with great tracks like "I Will If You Will", "I'm In Need Of Love", "Just To Let Him Break Your Heart", "Somebody New Is Loving On You", "Just To Let Him Break Your Heart", and "The Common Broken Heart".

Main IngredientEuphrates River/Afrodisiac ... CD
RCA/Expansion (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $14.99
Two of our favorite albums by The Main Ingredient – back to back on a single CD! Euphrates River is a wonderfully complex batch of tunes that shows that the group were taking a cue from some of their hipper contemporaries, and pushing past a stock hit formula. Bert DeCoteaux was still arranging, but the group produced themselves, giving the record a sexy funky feeling in the best parts, not that dissimilar from some of Marvin Gaye's work, or records by groups like The Isley Brothers or The O'Jays. Includes great versions of two Seals & Crofts songs – "Summer Breeze" and "Euphrates" – both a perfect example of this style, as is "Happiness Is Just Around The Bend" – plus a great reading of Willie Hutch's "California My Way", which has a super-dope sample at the beginning. Of course, the album still includes material like their hit " "Just Don't Want To Be Lonely", a sweetly style AM radio pop hit in the band's best style of earlier years. Afrodisiac is one of the most righteous albums ever from the Main Ingredient – as you might guess from its title and stylish cover! The group are really opening up here – and show a distinct Stevie Wonder influence throughout – not just because they perform their own hip takes on a number of tunes by Stevie, but also because Wonder himself plays a bit on the record! Rhythms are inventive, and grooves nice and complex – way past standard chart soul, into a heady mix that holds up beautifully over the years. Keyboards slide in great with the harmonies – and titles include great versions of Stevie Wonder tunes "Superwoman", "Where Were You When I Needed You", "Something Lovely", "Girl Blue", and "I Am Yours" – plus the great breakbeat track "You Can Call Me Rover", which has a very tight drum sound at the beginning, and tight soul harmonies all the way through. Also features a hip take on the Isleys' "Work To Do" too! CD

MaxwellMaxwell's Urban Hang Suite ... CD
Columbia, 1996. Used ... $3.99
An excellent bit of modern soul – a smooth seductive album that fits perfectly with an older mellow groove, but which also sparkles with the best recent efforts of the past decade. Maxwell's got a wonderful vocal style – reminding us a bit of classic Isley Brothers, Leon Ware, or O'Jays in a ballad mode – and it sits perfectly amidst warm jazzy arrangements by Musze, filled with all the subtle instrumental touches (keyboards, sax, and guitar) you'd find on a late album by Marvin Gaye, or some of the slow jams by the Isleys. The vibe is warm and acoustic, and the record's a wonderful return to a classic mellow midtempo soul style – and did quite well upon its initial release. Also interesting was the fact that the record was pressed up heavily on vinyl – something that was rare for a mainstream soul album at the time, and which was particularly ubiquitous in our hometown of Chicago, where DJs on the steppers scene were snatching up the record like hotcakes! Includes the titles "Ascension", "Whenever Wherever Whatever", "Lonely's The Only Company (parts 1 & 2)", "Reunion", and "Suitelady (The Proposal Jam)" – but the whole thing's great! CD

Curtis MayfieldNever Say You Can't Survive ... CD
Curtom/Charly (UK), 1977. Used ... $9.99
A great album of mellow soul tracks from Curtis Mayfield – laidback, slinky, and almost to his earlier work what Let's Get It On was to the early 70s career of Marvin Gaye! The album's got a warm, soulful vibe that's totally great – not as all-out funky or politically righteous as before, and instead more deeply personal, and almost intimate at times – in a way that really lets Curtis open up with those fragile and heartbreaking vocals that made his 60s work so great. The restraint here is totally great – another mid 70s masterpiece from arranger Rich Tufo – and at times, Mayfield hits a similar mode to some of Leroy Hutson's best Curtom work from the time! Titles include "Just Want To Be With You", "All Night Long", "When We're Alone", "I'm Gonna Win Your Love", "Sparkle", "Never Say You Can't Survive", and "Show Me Love". CD

Lloyd PriceMusic Music ... CD
LPG/P-Vine (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $24.99
A killer of an album – a real corker from Lloyd, one of those singers who kept on growing tremendously after his early big hits! The album was recorded in Muscle Shoals, but it's got a smooth modern sort of finish – all compressed and slightly funky, in a manner that's partially inspired by Philly, partially by Marvin Gaye's mid 70s hits. The whole thing's extremely great – with lots of hip modern numbers that bear no resemblance whatsoever to Lloyd's early work, and which will have you going "Hey, who's that? He's really great!" A bit like Sydney Joe Qualls, Johnny Bristol, or Prince Phillip Mitchell – and with tracks that include "N'Sele", "Uphill Peace Of Mind", "Street Love", "Mr & Mrs Untrue", "What Did You Do With My Love", and "Music Music".

Lewis TaylorLewis Taylor (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Island/Caroline (UK), 1996. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99
A hell of a classic from UK singer Lewis Taylor – one of the best blue-eyed soul albums recorded in the 90s, and a record that's still years ahead of its time! In a stretch when so many others were putting out fake soul – or breathing heavily on downtempo records – Taylor found a way to really deliver something new and unique, yet also come across with the classic mellow flow of 70s work by artists like Marvin Gaye or The Isley Brothers! Taylor's vocal delivery here owes plenty to both, but the production is very crisp and individual – handled by Lewis himself, and in a spare mix of modes that's quite different than some of the more stock "beats and keys" modes that would take over underground soul in the next decade! Instead, there's this great range of subtle tones and textures that work beautifully alongside Taylor's sublime vocals – all to suit some beautifully-written tunes too. Titles include "Lucky", "Track", "Betterlove", "Right", "Spirit", "Bittersweet", and "Whoever". 2CD set is wonderful – and includes 12 more bonus cuts from singles and other projects – including "Asleep When You Come", "You Got Me Thinking", "Waves", "Trip So Heavy", "A Little Bit Tasty", "Lewis III", "Pie In The Electric Sky/If I Lay Down On You", "I Dream The Better Dream", "Bittersweet (ext)", and "Lucky" in three different mixes by Kruder & Dorfmeister!

Harold VickAfter The Dance ... CD
TK/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $18.99
A sweet soulful groover from the great Harold Vick – quite a different record than some of his other 70s sessions, but a nice one too! The sound here is very mellow – and very much in the "After The Dance" mode that the album references from the Marvin Gaye tune – laidback, slinky, sexy, and a sweet blend of jazz instrumentation and some larger backdrops put together by William Eaton – almost with a vibe that would be more at home on Kuduo or CTI! Vick solos wonderfully – stepping out with a line that's spare, but right on the money – similar to some Stanley Turrentine solo work on projects like this – amidst other instrumentation from Richard Tee on keyboards, Eric Gale on guitar, and Ralph MacDonald on percussion. Titles include a great version of Marvin Gaye's "After The Dance", plus "You Are Everything", "Blue In The Face", "Ghetto Fantasy", "In My Life" and "Things Ain't Right". CD

VariousComplete Motown Singles Vol 4 – 1964 (limited edition 6CD set) ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, 1964. Used 6CD ... $64.99
An incredible year for Motown Records – beautifully documented in a complete run of singles from 1964! This may be the heaviest-hitting volume in the Complete Motown Singles series so far – as 1964 was a real breakthrough time for the label, a point when they exploded into mainstream consciousness with some landmark hits – but were also still trying their hand at a variety of unusual work with lesser-known artists! And as you've probably found out from the other volumes, looking at Motown through the full range of its singles, you get a far different picture of the label than their overplayed hits – because amidst the famous classics there's plenty of unusual sounds and rare soul moments – an amazing range of greatness that never fails to please! This package features a whopping 6CDs in all (plus a bonus 45 packaged in the cover!) – 165 songs in all, presented in a completely great hardcover package – with 136 pages of notes on each track, plus essays, color photos, and loads of cool images from the 60s! Includes music by Earl Van Dyke, Mary Wells, The Supremes, The Majestics, The Headliners, The Four Tops, Kim Weston, Marvin Gaye, Ray Oddis, The Miracles, The Contours, Carolyn Crawford, Howard Crockett, The Velvelettes, Choker Campbell, Lee Alan, R Dean Taylor, Howard Crockett, Brenda Holloway, Eddie Holland, Bruce Channel, and many others!

Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
A killer collection of soul, jazz, and R&B – all the kind of cuts that helped shape the sound of groundbreaking UK singer Georgie Fame in the 60s! Georgie drank heavily from a heady brew of American tunes in the years before he cut his own great records – and was always ready to credit the big influences on his music – either by covering their tunes, or by doing the best to keep on grooving in their own soulful styles! This sweet package offers up a great look at Georgie's roots – and offers up 25 tracks along with very detailed notes – all in a mod, soulful groove that's fully enjoyable on its own, even if you're not the sort of Fame fanatics that we are. Titles include "The Dog" by Rufus Thomas, "Sweet Thing" by The Spinners, "Pride & Joy" by Marvin Gaye, "Pink Champagne" by Joe Liggins, "One Whole Year Baby" by Earl Curry, "Eso Beso" by Paul Anka, "Gimme That Wine" by Lambert Hendricks & Ross, "All About My Girl" by Jimmy McGriff, "Funny How Time Slips Away" by Joe Hinton, "Shop Around" by The Miracles, "Sitting In The Park" by Billy Stewart, and "Monkeying Around" by William Bell.

Never-heard songs from the Motown empire of the 60s – all new discoveries from the label's mighty deep vaults – all of them totally great tracks that make for a superb new look at the Detroit powerhouse of soul! Many of these cuts are in a Northern Soul mode – the kind of upbeat groovers that made Motown a huge favorite on the British scene right from the start, and which make the UK Kent label a perfect spot to showcase work this great – with detailed notes on all the tracks, excellent sound quality, and an impeccable ear for choosing just the right sort of tracks to pop a groove like the bigger singles from the label. Some of the cuts here are early recordings by artists who'd later break big, others are more obscure Motown acts – and the package features 24 titles that include "Goose Wobbling Time" by Popcorn Wylie, "I'll Be Satisfied" by Frank Wilson, "Where Are You" by Ivy Jo, "One Track Mind" by Marv Johnson, "Heart To Heart" by Earl Van Dyke, "Head Over Heels In Love With You Baby" by Edwin Starr, "I'm Here Now That You Need Me" by The Fantastic Four, "Imagination Is Running Wild" by The Spinners, "The In Crowd" by Jimmy Ruffin, "Wish I Didn't Love You So" by The Monitors, "The Touch Of Venus" by Marvin Gaye, "I'd Rather Forget" by The Temptations, and "Kissing In The Shadows" by Johnny Bristol.

Think you've heard everything on Motown? Think again – because this sweet little set is filled with unissued 60s recordings by some of the best male singers on the label! The collection is a soul fan's dream come true – as the music here represents some real lost corners of Motown, with sounds that span almost the full stretch of the 60s – and really show the label's greatness at work – because if most of these tracks were recorded by other labels, they would have been pushed as potential hits! There's great work from artists who were just starting out, surprising moments from big names at the time, and a few entries we wouldn't have guessed without looking at the notes – and titles include "Headin North" by Shorty Long, "Only On The Weekend" by The Headliners, "Satisfaction Is Guaranteed" by Bobby Taylor & The Vancouvers, "Safety Zone" by Marv Johnson, "Hold On To Me" by The Spinners, "Show Me You Can Dance" by The Hit Pack, "Tell Me How To Forget A True Love" by Johnny Bristol, "Mojo Hannah (studio)" by Marvin Gaye, "I Wanted To Cry" by Bruce Channel, "I'm Gonna Make It To The Top" by Freddie Gorman, "This Ole Heart" by The Quails, "The Night We Called It A Day" by The Four Tops, and "Just Your Love" by Ivy Jo.

✨✧ California PlayboysTrying To Become A Millionaire ... CD
Loadstone/Manufactured, 1976. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Stunning funky soul by California Playboys – a heck of a record that should have made the Playboys a huge combo at the time! It's a shame the group didn't become millionaires – but the obscurity of the record is maybe also one of its charms – the kind of small label set that never fully got its due at the time, but which is ripe for rediscovery all these many years later! The California Playboys were together for a number of years – forming as a backing band for singer Lester Young (not the sax player), doing session work for others, and otherwise developing their skills for years – all of which really comes through here in their sharp-edged instrumentation, which sounds even sharper in the 70s indie-level production for the album. The killer title tune sounds like it could (and should!) be the namesake tune of a funky mid 70s soundtrack – as it's really got a perfect cinematic soul vibe, ala Bobby Womack and Marvin Gaye – though in a tighter, smaller combo setting. Most tunes start with vocals and end with long instrumental riffing – and titles include"Double Love", "She's A Real Sweet Woman", "Just Say A Four Letter Word", "I've Got To Find Myself Another Girl", and "Turned On For Good".

A sweet step forward for the mighty Caesar Frazier – an artist you might know more as a Hammond organist from his earlier albums as a leader – but one who steps out here as a soul singer with a mighty sweet groove! The record's way more than just a quick shift to disco for some cash – as Caesar's getting some excellent help here from arranger David Van DePitte – the Motown genius who brought great sounds to Marvin Gaye and others, and who really helps keep things at a more sophisticated level here – as Frazier sings in the lead, instead of playing his usual keyboards. And while the set was recorded in Detroit, it also got a final mixdown at Sigma Sound in Philly by the great Tom Moulton – who really finds a way to bring out the best energy of the cuts. Titles include "Child Of the Wind", "Lady", "Another Life", "Till Another Day", and "I Got To Have Your Love". CD features two bonus tracks – the unissued "Gonna Lay It On Ya", and "Till Another Day (Tom Moulton 7" edit)". CD

Amazing stuff! Arguably Leon Ware's greatest record – and one of the greatest Motown records of the 70s! The record is a beautiful set of interwoven mellow soul tracks, recorded right on the heels of Marvin Gaye's I Want You album, which was written and conceived by Ware, then taken at the last minute by Marvin! For this set, Ware creates a very similar sound – mixing together smooth keyboards with subtle bits of funk and electronics, all wrapped up in his own sweet warm vocals, which sound better here than on any other album. The whole thing's filled with loads of beautiful tracks, including "French Waltz", "Journey Into You", "Phantom Lover", and the great "Turn Out the Light", written with Minnie Riperton. Plus, this reissue features 5 previously unissued bonus tracks – Leon's original versions of "Comfort (aka Come Live With Me Angel)", recorded with Minnie Riperton, and "I Wanna Be Where You Are", both done by Marvin Gaye on I Want You, plus the tracks "Don't You Wanna Come", "Long Time No See", and "You Are The Way You Are".

A sweet set of funky club cuts from the late 70s and early 80s – music that's definitely on the funkier side of the disco spectrum, and which also does a nice job of covering ground from the time before and after the big dancefloor explosion too! This isn't gritty funk, of the funky 45 variety – but instead the tighter, sharper, more mainstream modes that came into play as the 70s moved on – still played by musicians who were at the top of their game, and recorded in ways that allowed all the sharpness of the music to find a new sort of groove! The package includes a few never-issued mixes – including "That's What You Get For Being Polite (DJ Reverent P edit)" by The Jacksons, "Looking Up To You (DJ Reverent P edit)" by Michael Wycoff, "So You Wanna Stay Down (DJ Reverend P edit)" by The Isley Brothers, and "Rockin After Midnight (DJ Reverend P edit)" by Marvin Gaye – plus the cuts "Till You Take My Love (12" mix)" by Harvey Mason, "Love Is Always On Your Mind (12" mix)" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Brazilian Love Affair" by George Duke, "Dazz (Dazz disco mix)" by Brick, "Joy To Have Your Love" by Patti LaBelle, "Remote Control" by The Reddings, "Play That Funky Music White Boy" by Wild Cherry, "Haboglabotribin" by Bernard Wright, "Get It Right" by Aretha Franklin, "Sun Goddess" by Ramsey Lewis, "The Groove" by Rodney Franklin, "I've Had Enough" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Hurry Up & Wait" by The Isley Brothers, "Coming To You Live" by Charles Earland, "Lowdown" by Boz Scaggs, "Funkin For Jamaica" by Tom Browne, "Risin To The Top" by Keni Burke, and "Do It Any Way You Wanna (Tom Moulton mix)" by People's Choice.
