Melba MooreLot Of Love ... LP
Capitol, 1986. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Crisp, warm, and nicely-grooving soul from Melba Moore – one of her most consistent albums of the period, and possibly the biggest hit of career! The team of writers and producers on the album is top-shelf – with work from Kashif, Paul Lawrence, Gene McFadden, and others – who really craft the right sort of sounds to fit Melba's wonderful voice! The first half of the album features more danceable, synth flavored 80s sounds, and the second has some great ballads – including the great duet "A Little Bit More" with Freddie Jackson. Other tracks include "Love The One I'm With (A Lot Of Love) "There I Go Falling In Love Again", "You Trip Me Out", "Falling", "Stay", "Don't Go Away", and "I'm Not Gonna Let You Go" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Melba MoorePortrait Of Melba ... LP
Buddah, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The vocals of Melba Moore, and some great Philly soul rhythms – put together with tight arrangements from McFadden & Whitehead, who give Moore a similar approach to some of the best Philadelphia International records of the time! There's a really nice sense of balance to the record – some mellower moments mixed in with the groovers, and a few stepping midtempo numbers that are especially nice – and which seem to unlock a depth and maturity in Melba's vocals we can really appreciate. Titles include "Living Freee", "You Are My River". "Standing Right Here", "Just Another Link", "Is This The End", "Promised Land" and "I Don't Know No One Else To Turn To". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the insert. Cover has light wear & a cut corner.)

✨✧ Melba MooreNever Say Never (with bonus track) ... CD
Capitol/FTG, 1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Melba Moore at the height of her 80s powers – stepping out here with help from Kashif, who sings a bit and plays keyboards – along with Paul Lawrence Jones, whose keys also shine brightly on the set! There's a nicely jazzy undercurrent to some of the best numbers – that flowing 80s groove style that's never too overdone, and which does a good job of reigning in some of Melba's too-commercial tendencies – and the quality of the record is a great example of the way that Moore could hold things together, even when reaching for a larger audience. Titles include "Lean On Me", "Lovin Touch", "Never Say Never", "Love Me Right", "Keepin My Lover Satisfied", and "Got To Have Your Love". CD also features a bonus track – "Love Me Right (ext rmx)".

✨✧ VariousJohn Morales – The M&M Mixes Vol 4 – The Ultimate Collection – NYC Classic Underground Anthems & Previously Unreleased Remixes (4CD set) ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... Just Sold Out!
John Morales has a wonderful talent for taking a funky track and making it sound even funkier – which he does beautifully here in this killer collection of old school tunes! Many of the numbers are vintage clubby soul from the late 70s and early 80s – and Morales has this great way of crystalizing all the best elements in the songs, and pulling them to the forefront – but all without ever ruining the integrity of the tracks that sounded so great in the first place! In other words, the work here isn't the imprint of some young DJ trying to overstate his presence – but a true music maestro who really knows what makes a club track great – a vibe that takes us back to the brilliant edits of the early NYC scene. All titles here are previously unreleased – and the massive 4CD set features titles that include Morales mixes of "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More Baby" by Barry White, "You Got Me Running" by Lenny Williams, "Mind On You" by Level 42, "Vertigo/Relight My Fire" by Dan Hartman, "Lovergirl" by Teen Marie, "Standing Right Here" by Mannix, "Love Is The Message" by MFSB, "Let The Music Play" by Barry White, "Don't Leave Me This Way" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Funkin For Jamaica" by Tom Browne, "All Night" by Katzuma, "Hi Tension" by Hi Tension, "Girl You Need A Change Of Mind" by Eddie Kendricks, "Before I Let Go" by Frankie Beverly, "Got To Be Real" by Cheryl Lynn, "Star Love" by Three Ounces Of Love", "You Stepped Into My Life" by Melba Moore, "Life Is A Song Worth Singing" by Teddy Pendergrass, "Walk Away From Love" by David Ruffin, "Life Goes On" by The Jones Girls, "This Time Baby" by Jackie Moore, "Turn Me Up" by Keith Barrow, "Circles" by Atlantic Starr, "Joy & Pain" by Maze, "Stay" by The Controllers, "Take Me Home" by Cher, and "Can't Live Without Your Love" by Tamiko Jones.

VariousTwelve Inch 70s – More More More (3CD set) ... CD
Crimson (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $12.99 13.99
The 12" single was born in the 70s, and it instantly came of age in the disco generation – thanks to help from the sorts of wonderful grooves features in this set! The package is way more than just a batch of hit disco singles – as the range of material is nicely wide, and mixes hits with underground numbers that are well-remembered over the years – many served up here in special versions that were exclusive to the original 12" singles – with the requisite sonic punch you might expect! 3CD set features 32 tracks in all – and titles include "You Don't Have To Go (12" version)" by The Chi-Lites, "Got To Be Real (12" version)" by Cheryl Lynn, "Ain't No Stoppin Us Now (12" version)" by McFadden & Whitehead, "More More More (12" version)" by Andrea True Connection, "It's A Disco Night (12" disco single)" by Isley Brothers, "Love Train (extended)" by The O'Jays, "Keep On Dancin (12" version)" by Gary's Gang, "Taste Of Bitter Love (extended)" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Pick Me Up I'll Dance (12" mix)" by Melba Moore, "Gone Gone Gone (disco mix)" by Johnny Mathis, "Rasputin (maxi version)" by Boney M, "This Time Baby (12" version)" by Jackie Moore, "You Bet Your Love (12" version)" by Herbie Hancock, "Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick (12" version)" by Ian Dury & The Blockheads, "Giving Up Giving In (long version)" by The Three Degrees, "Strut Your Funky Stuff (UK 12" rmx)" by Frantique, "Shake Your Body Down To The Ground (12" John Luongo disco mix)" by The Jacksons, "That Funky Disco Rhythm (12" version)" by Gene Chandler, "Love Is The Message (special 12" version)" by MFSB, "We're On Our Way Home (parts 1 & 2)" by Brainstorm, and "Don't Leave Me This Way (Tom Moulton mix)(" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes.

✨✧ Galt MacDermotHair – Original Broadway Cast Recording ... LP
RCA, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most influential musical moments of the 60s – Hair! Hair not only forever changed the concept of musical theater on Broadway, but it also gave the world an incredible array of groovy tunes with odd rhythms – and made a place for composer Galt MacDermot to continue his musical experiments for years to come – eventually influencing a generation of beatheads and hip hoppers as a result! This package features the official Broadway recording of the score – with singers who include Ronnie Dyson, Diane Keaton, and Melba Moore! Titles include "Aquarius", "Where Do I Go", "My Conviction", "Frank Mills", "Be In", "Abie Baby", "Colored Spade", and "Air". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousLegacy Of Disco (3CD set – with bonus track) ... CD
Sony (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A great little set of classic disco tracks, but one that also includes a few rare mixes too – all brought together in a monumental tribute to the sound of the east coast scene at the end of the 70s! The package is heavy on tracks with origins in Philly and New York – including a fair bit of Philadelphia International gems from the Gamble & Huff team, mixed with other work from the larger holdings of Sony labels – including Epic, Columbia, RCA, and Buddah at the time. There's a nicely unified feel to the whole thing – one that really makes us re-appreciate some of these cuts in the setting – and titles include unreleased cuts "Love is The Message (Danny Krivit edit)" by MFSB, "I Don't Wanna Lose Your Love (DJ Reverend P edit)" by The Emotions "You Can't Had From Yourself (Mike Maurro rmx)" by Teddy Pendergrass, and "Love Epidemic (DJ Reverend P edit)" by The Trammps" – plus the cuts "Don't Leave Me This Way (Tom Moulton mix)" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Was That All It Was (78rpm version)" by Jean Carne, "Ain't No Smoke Without Fire (DJ Reverend P edit)" by Eddie Kendricks, "Bad Luck (Mike Maurro ext rmx)" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Where Will You Go When The Party's Over (Tom Moulton mix)" by Archie Bell & The Drells, "This Time Baby (Tom Moulton mix)" by Jackie Moore, "You Stepped Into My Life (John Luongo rmx)" by Melba Moore, "I Love Music (Tom Moulton mix)" by The O'Jays, "See You When I Get There (Tom Moulton mix)" by Lou Rawls, "Could Heaven Ever Be Like This (DJ Reverend P edit)" by Idris Muhammad, "Taste Of Bitter Love" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "It's In Your Blood (special disco version)" by Linda Hopkins, "Boogie Wonderland (12" version)" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Walk Right Now (John Luongo disco mix)" by The Jacksons, "Standing Right Here (Tom Moulton mix)" by Melba Moore, "Groovin You (12" mix)" by Harvey Mason, and "Dirty Old Man (Tom Moulton ext 12" mix)" by Three Degrees.

✨✧ VariousStrange Games & Funky Things 3 – Compiled By Kenny Dope ... CD
BBE (UK), 1970s. Used 3CDs ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest soul compilation series ever! Kenny Dope put together this 3rd volume, and we might be tempted to say that it's the best one of the 3! Strange Games has a deceptively simple approach – but the compilation features the kind of grooves that will keep you coming back and back again, and which will play well with both fans of older soul and modern beat-heads alike. Nearly every track has been sampled at some point over the past 10 years – so you'll recognize many of the beats and riffs – but the tracks are also totally excellent, and hold up extremely well on their own as smooth modern soul classics. Titles include "Superman Lover" by Johnny Guitar Watson, "Standing Right Here" by Melba Moore, "Free" by Deniece Williams, "Holding You, Loving You" by Don Blackman, "Was It Something I Said" by Sylvester, "I've Been Watching You" by Parliament, "I'm Your Mechanical Man" by Jerry Butler, "I Wanna Do Something Freaky To You" by Leon Haywood, "Stars In Your Eyes" by Herbie Hancock, "Thoughts Of Old Flames" by Pleasure, "What Am I Missing?" by Rufus, and "Freddie's Dead" by MFSB. Also features a few cuts that have been on other compilations – by artists like Ramp, Labbi Siffre, Love Unlimited Orchestra, and Barry White – but they're all great anyway, and are fine to have again! CD version features 3 CDs! Disc 1 is a mixed set of tracks – and discs 2 and 3 are unmixed, and include 21 cuts between them. Packaged in a totally great slipcase, too! CD
(Out of print, digipack sleeve has some light edgewear.)

✨✧ Joey NegroProduced With Love (with bonus CD) ... CD
Z Records (UK), 2017. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Joey Negro's got a decades-long love of disco – one that began at a time when so many other artists were going for colder, easier ways of serving up a groove – and Joey was a rare talent who could really take things back to the glory days of the clubs! That talent has only gotten greater and greater over the years – through projects done under Negro's own name, his work with the Sunburst Band, and even his unstoppable efforts to work as a dancefloor historian through his Z Records label! All that energy, and more, seems to come to play here – on a set that soars to the skies with the very first note – reminding us that, alongside Bluey from Incognito, Joey's one of the few cats who can get a classic sound completely right, right from the start – but also have a way of sending the music forward for a new generation too! The album's a dream right from the start – with great work from Kaidi Tatham on keyboards on some tracks – and an array of great guest singers young and old, who include Angela Johnson, Donna Gardier, Lifford, Alex Mills, Diane Charlemagne, Melba Moore, and Linda Clifford. Titles include "Must Be The Music (orig disco version)", "Everything", "Into The Blue", "Overnight Sensation", "Won't Let Go", "Anyway", "Prove That You're Feeling Me", "It's More Fun To Compute", "In Search Of The Dream", and "Stomp Your Feet". Features a full CD with bonus mixes and productions by Joey – including "Anyway (Joey Negro rmx)" by Melba Moore, "Spanish Hustle (Joey Negro rmx)" by Fatback Band, "Love Is Thicker Than Water" by Peven Everett, "Into The Blue" by Alex Mills, "Message In Our Music (Joey Negro rmx)" by The O'Jays, "What A Life (Joey Negro rmx)" by Gwen Guthrie, "Must Be The Music (disco boogie xtravaganza dub)" by Joey Negro, and "Dancing Into The Stars" by Joey Negro & Horse Meat Disco.

✨✧ VariousManhattan Soul Vol 3 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really special set of soul tracks – and one that's got a vibe that's maybe even different from the previous two Manhattan Soul collections! This package is filled with the kind of overlooked gems that sometimes get lost because people are a bit too focused in their record-collecting tastes – mellow cuts that are still a bit funky, deep soul from up-north sources, and even some group numbers that are neither upbeat and Northern, nor slow enough to be mellow harmonies. Instead, these cuts together really defy the rules – showing that in the deeper corners of the New York underground, there were always great new ideas going on – not work that was trying to challenge the stars at Atlantic, or the Brill Building best – but instead very happy to just do their own thing, in some very groovy ways. The work comes from the Wand, Scepter, and Musicor family of labels – better-known for big hits, but also very dedicated to cool indie singles that only seem to be getting their due in more recent years. CD features 24 tracks in all – and titles include "Giving Up" by Junior Lewis, "Now That You're Gone" by Sonny Turner & Sound Limited, "Open Up Your Heart" by Dan & The Cleancuts, "Every Little Bit Helps" by Helen Henry, "Two Stupid Feet" by The Shirelles, "The Same Old Song" by The Dinos, "Nobody Made You Love Me" by The Charts, "Fun City Woman" by Ann Bailey, "The Landlord" by The Tabs, "Does Love Believe In Me" by Melba Moore, "Mr Schemer" by Brenton Wood, "You Picked Me" by The Soldier Boys, and "Never In My Life" by Lee Moses.

✨✧ VariousNorthern & Rare Soul Collector – Together For The First Time – Originally Unreleased ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning set of rare soul from the glory days of the Northern Soul years – and even more amazing because none of these tunes were ever issued at the time! Yet these aren't second-hand cuts that have lain in the vaults, nor the dregs of good recording sessions – and instead, these are killer tracks that finally saw the light of day on various reissues over the decades – years after their conception, but with enough space to have gotten them plenty of spins on later generations of Northern Soul dancefloors. The work is all wonderful – really top-shelf material that's right up there with Detroit or Philly classics – often recorded by artists you'll know from other great singles too. Titles include "Push A Little Harder" by The Metros, "Honey Please Stay" by United Four, "Turn Back The Hands Of Time" by Lonnie Youngblood, "I Wish You The World Of Happiness" by Shirley Turner, "I'm Not Afraid" by Sharon Scott, "You Only Live Twice" by Lorraine Chandler, "The Magic Touch" by Melba Moore, "It's Torture" by Maxine Brown, "Ooh It Hurts Me" by The Cavaliers, and "Hey Girl" by Porgy & The Monarchs. LP, Vinyl record album
