Melba MooreDancin' With Melba ... LP
Buddah, 1979. Very Good ... $7.99
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 MooreRead My Lips ... LP
Capitol, 1985. Near Mint- ... $1.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Melba MooreMelba (Buddah) ... LP
Buddah, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 ... LP
Capitol, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Melba Moore at the height of her 80s powers – stepping out here with a good bit of 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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Melba MooreYou Stepped Into My Life/There's No Other Like You ... 12-inch
Epic, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little groove from Melba Moore – one with a wicked bass bit on the intro – just ripe and waiting for someone to snatch up and sample! The cut's got plenty going on instrumentally, even before the vocals – a wonderful bit of old school funk that Melba makes even better when she sings! "There's No Other Like You" is much mellower, and a nice contrast to the a-side. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Melba MooreOther Side Of The Rainbow (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/FTG, 1982. New Copy ... 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. Other titles include "Underlove", "Mind Up Tonight", "How's Love Been Treating You", "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar-Pie Honey Bunch)" and "The Other Side Of The Rainbow". This edition includes 3 bonus tracks: "Underlove (M&M Mix)", "Love's Comin' At Ya (Instrumental)" and "Mind Up Tonight (Instrumental)". CD

✨✧ Melba MooreWhat A Woman Needs (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/FTG, 1981. New Copy ... 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. This CD includes 2 bonus tracks: "Take My Love (Edited 12" Version)" and "Just You, Just Me". CD

✨✧ Blood Sweat & TearsChild Is Father To The Man ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Very Good ... $9.99
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

✨✧ VariousSassafras & Moonshine – The Songs Of Laura Nyro ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A great tribute to the songwriting skills of Laura Nyro – presented here in a package that features key covers from some of Nyro's contemporaries, and which also includes a surprising amount of soul music too! Laura's one of those key 60s talents who started writing for others, then got the chance to spread her wings on her own – and while her own recordings have really continued to reach new audiences over the decades, it's great to have a package like this to remind us of Nyro's songwriting roots! The set's mostly heavy on material from the late 60s and early 70s – with a fair bit of female soul tunes in the mix – and it also includes a few more contemporary numbers that come as a nice surprise. Like others in Ace's "songwriter" series, the production and packaging is great – and titles include "Stoney End" by The Blossoms, "Time & Love" by The Supremes, "Wedding Bell Blues" by Bobby Gentry, "Captain St Lucifer" by Melba Moore, "Save The Country" by Thelma Houston, "Lazy Susan" by Liane Carroll, "He's A Runner" by Mama Cass, "Buy & Sell" by Nnena Freelon, "Lonely Women" by Linda Hoyle, "Eli's Coming" by Friends Of Distinction, and "Stoned Soul Picnic" by Staple Singers.

✨✧ 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

✨✧ VariousGroove On Down – 12 Full Length Rare & Classic Disco/Boogie Cuts ... CD
Soul Brother (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... 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".

✨✧ VariousPhilly Regrooved (180 gram 8LP set) ... LP
Harmless (UK), 1970s. New Copy 8 LPs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A limited edition box set – featuring the first vinyl appearance of mixes from the excellent Philly Regrooved CD series! The work is a Philly soul dream come true – classic 70s material from the legendary Philly Groove label and other local imprints, all remixed by the legendary Tom Moulton! Tom's already known for work on countless club and disco gems from back in the day – including a fair bit of classics for the Salsoul label – but here, he turns his talents to the Philly Groove label – one of the first companies to really come up with the Philadelphia groove of the 70s – that sweet blend of quick rhythms, soaring instrumentation, and soulful vocals that made the City Of Brotherly Love one of the hippest scenes at the time. And although we love these cuts in their originals, they sound even better here in the hands of Moulton – really extended remixes of 40 tracks that include "Look Me Up" by Blue Magic, "Be Thankful For What You've Got" by William DeVaughn, "I Can't Fight Your Love" by The Modulations, "Standing Right Here" by Melba Moore, "When The Game Is Played On You" by Betty Swann, "One Of A Kind Love Affair" by The Spinners, "Got To Get You Back" by Sons Of Robin Stone, "I Told You So" by The Delfonics, "Second Best" by Finishing Touch, "Gonna Keep On Lovin Him" by First Choice, "Beware She's Pulling My Strings" by The Quickest Way Out, "I'm Hopelessly In Love With You" by Moment Of Truth, "Action Speaks Louder Than Words" by Terry Collins, "Straight From The Heart" by Loose Change, "Big Stone Wall" by Tapestry, "Put Yourself In My Place" by TJM, "Whatcha Gonna Do" by Heaven N Hell, "I'm Doin Fine Now" by New York City, "I Just Can't Say Goodbye" by Philly Devotions, and "We're On The Right Track" by Ultra High Frequency.

✨✧ VariousStrange Games & Funky Things 3 – Compiled By Kenny Dope ... LP
BBE (UK), 1970s. Used 3LP ... Temporarily 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 "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'm Your Mechanical Man" by Jerry Butler, "I Wanna Do Something Freaky To You" by Leon Haywood, 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! This vinyl version features 3LPs – all unmixed – and a total of 15 tracks in all, in a very nice package! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Galt MacDermotHair – Original Broadway Cast Recording ... LP
RCA, 1968. Used ... 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

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