Melba MooreDancin' With Melba ... LP
Buddah, 1979. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A album of club tracks, as you might guess from the title, but every bit as strong as Melba More's other work from the late 70s! The album's got some top-shelf club help throughout – including production from Van McCoy and McFadden & Whitehead, the latter of whom also contributed a few key tracks – and the whole thing's also mixed by Richie Rivera with a soaring, spacious sound, and one that's never too cloyingly commercial. Melba's strong vocals are right at home in the setting, and even the longer tracks don't seem to dampen her enthusiasm at all. Titles include "Standing Right Here", "Free", "Play Boy Scout", "Promised Land", and "Make Me Believe In You". LP, Vinyl record album

Melba MooreLot Of Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/FTG, 1986. New Copy ... $7.99 13.98
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. This FTG edition has 5 bonus remixes, extended and alternate versions – including "Love The One I'm With (A Lot Of Love) (extended version)", "It's Been So Long (extended remix)", and "A Little Bit More (radio edit)".

Melba MooreMelba (Buddah) ... LP
Buddah, 1976. Very Good- ... $0.99
Soaring soul from Melba Moore – a singer who really came into her own with this sweet 70s album! Melba always had a great voice, right from the start – but here, she's working with arrangements and production by Van McCoy – updating her sound with a bit of a clubby groove, in a way that helps Moore reach even greater heights than usual – and cross over to a big audience with ears for the growing disco sounds of the time! McCoy really knows how to pitch things right – and overall, the album's got a much deeper feel than some of his own disco work of the time – thanks, no doubt, to Melba's rich vocal approach. Titles include "So Many Mountains", "Good Love Makes Everything Alright", "The Way You Make Me Feel", "The Greatest Feeling", "Mighty Clouds Of Joy", and "Ain't No Love Lost". LP, Vinyl record album

Melba MooreNever Say Never (with bonus track) ... CD
Capitol/FTG, 1983. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
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)".

Melba MooreRead My Lips (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/FTG, 1985. New Copy ... $7.99 13.98
An early 80s set from Melba Moore – recorded at a time when she was really coming into her own! Read My Lips has Melba working nicely with some tight Capitol soul backings – often a bit heavy on the beats, but in a way that guides the tunes strongly from the bottom, and lets Melba's vocals really shine over the top! The instrumentation is heavy on the keyboards, and also features some polished guitars – and production is by Beau Huggins and the Hush Productions team – on titles that include "The Love Of A Lifetime", "Read My Lips", "I Can't Believe It", "When You Love Me Like This", "King Of My Heart", "Winner", and "Mind Over Matter". CD features lots of bonus tracks – including "I Can't Believe It (ext version)", "Read My Lips (special mix)", "When You Love Me Like This (special club)", "Winner (inst)", "Read My Lips (ext)", and "When You Love Me Like This (monster groove mix)".

✨✧ Melba MooreOther Side Of The Rainbow ... LP
Capitol, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early 80s classic from Melba Moore – best known for one of her biggest hits, "Love's Comin' At Ya", an enduring number that's got an irresistible groove! Like many of Melba's other albums, this one does a wonderful job of delivering radio-friendly pop soul and still hitting us on a deeper soul level – with some great vocal work from Melba! Her voice soars over the period production details that sound fresh once again. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Melba MooreStanding Right Here – The Anthology – The Buddah & Epic Years ... CD
Epic/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A huge run of greatness from singer Melba Moore – an artist who maybe hit her heights on the late 70s Buddah and Epic Records material featured here! Moore already had a fantastically well-developed voice by the time of these recordings – thanks to time on the stage in a number of key productions, including Hair and Purlie – but the late 70s also shows her really finding the right sort of focus for her unusual talents – maybe pulling back a bit at the right moments, and folding her strength into the overall groove of a tune – spearheaded here with excellent work from producers who include McFadden & Whitehead, Eugene McDaniels, and Van McCoy! CD1 features 17 tracks from her time at Budddah Records, CD2 features 14 more cuts recorded for Epic – and the collection also features some rare b-sides and other material from singles. Titles include "My Sensitive Passionate Man", "Standing Right Here", "I Am His Lady", "This Is It (12" mix)", "Stay Awhile", "So Many Mountains", "Good Love Makes Everything Alright (12" mix)", "You Stepped Into My Life", "Night People (12" mix)", "Next To You", "Rest Inside My Love", "You Stepped Into My Life (special disco mix)", "There's No Other Like You", "Just Another Link", "Night People (12" mix)", and "Burn (UK rmx)".

VariousBad Boys – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Capitol, 1982. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A pretty cool little soundtrack to this early Sean Penn film – one that starred him as a tough JD on the streets of Chicago! The score was written by Bill Conti – bu tthis album doesn't include any work by Bill at all – just some great electro soul tracks that burst out with a sweet 80s groove! The best of the late Capitol Rare sound is firmly in place here – tight rhythms, an upbeat bouncing groove, and strongly soulful vocals with a nice little hook! Soul tunes include "One More Time" by McFadden & Whitehead, "Too Hot To Be Cool" by Ebonee Webb, "Don't Go Away" by Melba Moore, "Street Corner" by Ashford & Simpson, "Superstar" by T Connection", and "Check Us Out" by Light Of The World – and as an added bonus, you also get Billy Squier singing the sublime "In The Dark"!

VariousManhattan Soul Vol 3 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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.

VariousNighttime Lovers Vol 22 – A Fine Collection Of Disco Funk Classics Of The 80s ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy ... $11.99
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.

VariousNorthern & Rare Soul Collector – Together For The First Time – Originally Unreleased ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
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.

✨✧ VariousGroove On Down – 12 Full Length Rare & Classic Disco/Boogie Cuts ... CD
Soul Brother (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fab collection that's casting light on one of the neglected eras in soul reissues, the cusp of the 80s, with an emphasis on great, soulful disco numbers. All the tracks here have a nice pumping 4/4 beat underneath, but the tempos on most numbers sit nicely in the middle, building a set of great 80s boogie numbers, roller skating soul and sophisticated club tracks that fill in some gaps in your 12" collection! There's a number of styles represented, with some nice moogy bits on a few tracks and soaring strings on others, but every cut's a gem, 12 of them in all, with Charme "Georgy Porgy", Harvey Mason "Groovin You", Melba Moore "Standing Right Here", Vaughn Mason "Bounce, Rock, Skate, Roll", Young & co "I Like What You're Doing to Me", Dunn Pearson "Groove On Down", "New Jersey Connection "Love Don't Come Easy", James Perry "April Lady", Garfield Fleming "Don't Send Me Away", Goldie Alexander "Show You My Love", Hipnotic "Are You Lonely" and the Circle City Band "Magic".

✨✧ VariousLegacy Of Disco (3CD set – with bonus track) ... CD
Sony (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily 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.

✨✧ Galt MacDermotCotton Comes To Harlem ... LP
United Artists, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... 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
