MetrosSweetest One ... CD
RCA/Dusty Groove, 1967. New Copy ... $7.99 12.99
One of the greatest Northern Soul albums ever – completely great all the way through, and filled with songs that have been burning up dancefloors for years! The vocals are incredible – soaring harmonies that hold together perfectly, even when the grooves are hard and heavy – and the instrumentation is great too – handled by the Pied Piper team, who were kind of a Motown offshoot that featured Jack Ashford on vibes and percussion, Dave Hamilton and Ray Monette on guitar, and Joe Hunter on piano. Hunter and Ashford handled the arrangements – with a pitch-perfect sound that's completely sublime – sweet and grooving at the same time, and put together with the same kind of care you'd find at Motown – but with all the harder-edge qualities that always made indie work from Detroit so great. Every cut is a winner, and the set is the only full album ever done by the group – with cuts that include "Egyptian Love", "Till The End Of Time", "Since I Found My Baby", "Sweetest One", "Unlucky Sun", "I'll Never Forget You", "Do The Pied Piper", and "I'm With You All The Way". Great reissue – fully remastered from the original tapes – with new liner notes too! CD
(On the Dusty Groove label.)

✨✧ Stephen HaynesParrhesia ... CD
Engine, 2010. Used ... Out Of Stock
A sharp, exciting improv trio set on the always strong Engine label – featuring Stephen Haynes on trumpet, coronet, flugelhorn and mutes, Warren Smith on drums, percussion, marimba and voice, and Joe Morris on electric guitar – on a great little Brooklyn session! Haynes was a student of and collaborator with the great Bill Dixon, and Bill's sense of space and adventurousness is a real part of the fabric of this set. It was all captured on January 3, 2010 at Metrosonic Studios in Brooklyn, and as free and searching as the set is, it's remarkably sure footed in its way and has the feel of a longtime collaboration. Includes "Reclamation", "Quietude", "Invocation", "Flowers For Ida", "St Louis Sonority", "Yet And Still" and "Unfolding". CD
(Sleeve has a cutout hole.)
