Melba MooreLook What You're Doing To The Man ... LP
Mercury, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $1.99
A great early soul set from Melba Moore – recording here as a much more righteous vocalist than on her previous theater performances in Purlie and Hair! The album's got a solid feel all the way through – one that really sets Moore on the right path in this side of her career, in ways that maximize the most righteous aspects of her vocals without going too far over the top, or into the area of showy cliches. Arrangements are by Charles Coleman, Charlie Calello, Jimmy Wisner, Thom Bell, and Bert DeCoteaux – and titles include "Loving You Comes So Easy", "Heaven Help Us All", "Searchin For A Dream", "Look What You're Doing To The Man", "Patience Is Rewarded", and "You Got The Power".

✨✧ Melba MooreI Got Love ... LP
Mercury, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great early work from Melba Moore – recorded at a time when she was winning big accolades for her work on stage as a parody of Diana Ross in Hair – but stepping out here as a hell of a great soul singer on her own! The tunes have a groove that's a bit more complicated than the usual soul work of the time – charts by Charlie Calello that show all his wonderful background in creative pop in the 60s – plus a few more numbers charted by Thom Bell and Jimmy Wisner. Melba's vocals are superb – very on the money, no matter what the setting – and titles include "Captain St Lucifer", "I Got Love", "Time & Love", "I Love Making Love To You", "I Messed Up On A Good Thing", "Easy To Be Hard", and "The Facade".

✨✧ Melba MooreWhat A Woman Needs ... LP
EMI, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early 80s set from Melba Moore – with some bubbling club soul grooves carried over from the 70s, plus spacier and funkier touches – largely produced by McFadden & Whitehead and featuring Kashif on moog bass! Given the production style here and the release date, we get the feeling that Melba & co. were resisting the prominent drum machine sound and otherwise more programmed backdrops that were taking hold in chart soul at the time, and even if she'd succeed with the more pronounced 80s vibe just a little later on, this record still feels plenty modern to our ears. A slept on gem! Includes "Let's Stand Together", "Your Sweet Lovin'", "What A Woman Needs", "Take My Love", "Overnight Sensation", "Each Second", "Piece Of The Rock", "Let's Go Back To Lovin" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

✨✧ Lafayette Harris Jr with Melba MooreHappy Together ... CD
Muse, 1995. Used ... Out Of Stock
Melba Moore makes a key guest appearance here – only singing on 4 of the album's 12 tracks, but really helping pianist Lafayette Harris expand his sound strongly! The core sound of the record comes from Harris' trio – a tight ensemble with Dwayne Dolphin on bass, and Cecil Brooks III on drums – the latter of whom produced the record with that sharp focus he brought to other great work on Muse Records at the time. Melba's the real surprise, though – coming across with a sensitively jazzy feel that's really wonderful – on numbers that include "I'm Smilin", "In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning", "Lady Sings The Blues", and "He Could Be Perfect For Me". Other titles include "Where Am I", "Hat's On Blues", "Happy Together", "The Sun Is", and "Solace". CD

Blood Sweat & TearsChild Is Father To The Man ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Very Good- ... $11.99
A wild debut from Blood Sweat & Tears – one of those records that forever changed the face of popular music! The set's noteworthy not just for early vocals from Al Kooper – who was a key part of the group at their start – but also for key production work from a young John Simon – who helped arrange a bit, threw in a few musical touches, and really gave the group some focus on record – of the sort that would continue over the course of man albums. The set's got some added strings at points, and there's even some backup vocals from the duo of Valerie Simpson and Melba Moore. Titles include "Overture", "I Can't Quit Her", "Just One Smile", "Without Her", "My Days Are Numbered", "Morning Glory", and "So Much Love/Underture". LP, Vinyl record album
(360 stereo pressing. Cover has some wear.)

VariousNighttime Lovers Vol 22 – A Fine Collection Of Disco Funk Classics Of The 80s ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99
Club-ready soul from the dawn of the 80s – a time when synths were becoming an integral part of the vibe, but lively 70s influences were still a vital piece – with nicely grooving tunes by Starpoint, Dynasty, Melba Moore, First Love, Blue Moderne, Mtune, Heatwave, High Fashion and more! This volume has 13 cuts, all from the first couple years of the decade, and it runs more than an hour long – so there's a lot to love here! Most of the tracks have genuinely soulful vocals, and a nicely elongated vibe guaranteed to keep the dancefloor moving – with "Bring Your Sweet Loving Back" by Starpoint, "Never Say Never" by Melba Moore, "Strokin'" by Dynasty, "Melodies Of Love" by Pink Rhythm, "Distant Destiny" by Zoom, "So You Wanna Be A Star" by Mtume, :"Do That Again" by Blue Moderne and more.

✨✧ Galt MacDermotCotton Comes To Harlem ... LP
United Artists, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A funky classic from Galt MacDermot! The record is Galt's score for the blacksploitation film that starred Godfrey Cambridge and Raymond St Jacques – and it's a mix of vocal and instrumental tunes that takes off from the sound of his late 60s work. Melba Moore sings on a few cuts – and others have lyrics sung by George Tipton, Sakinah, Leta Galloway, and Denise Dillpena, mostly in a early 70s pop soul sort of mode. The instrumentals are actually the best bits, though – with those odd little rhythms that Galt could hit when he really wanted to! Titles include "Man In Distress", "Harlem Medley", "Black Enough", "Stockyard", "Deke", "Ed & Digger", "Coffin Ed & Gravedigger", and "Harlem By Day". LP, Vinyl record album
