PlayersHe'll Be Back ... LP
Minit, Late 60s. Very Good ... $24.99
A hip bit of southern soul – very much in keeping with other work on the Minit label during the mid 60s. Although much of the work on Minit was from New Orleans, this set appears to have some Chicago origins – as it features arrangements by Riley Hampton (who'd worked with many artists on Okeh), and production by ex-Vee Jay head Calvin Carter. The style, though, is more in a Memphis soul mode – as the group runs through a mix of covers and originals that have a really deep soul sound. Titles include "Get Hep To Love", "He'll Be Back", "I Love You A Thousand Times", "I Wanna Be Free", "I'm Glad I Waited", "Peace Of Mind", and "Why Did I Lie". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear & a partially split top seam.)

Bobby WomackUnderstanding ... CD
United Artists, 1972. Used ... $6.99
Killer 70s work from Bobby Womack – reinventing himself here in a great style that keeps all the warmth and soulfulness of his Minit recordings, and gives it a healthy dose of 70s soul production – creating a sweet new groove that pushed Womack into a huge new audience at the time! Bobby strikes a perfect balance here – keeping things hip, but also tightening things up too – yet never by getting too smooth or too commercial. The result is a great batch of tracks that includes classics like "I Can Understand It", "Woman's Gotta Have it", and "Harry Hippy" – as well as a nice version of "Sweet Caroline", and Jimmy Lewis' great "Got To Get You Back".

✨✧ Bobby WomackLookin' For A Love Again ... LP
United Artists, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stone classic from Bobby Womack – one of those records that has all his best elements firmly in place, put forward at a level that's sophisticated and polished, yet never too commercial at all! Bobby's voices are still incredible – that raspy, personal feel that's rooted in country and deeper soul modes, yet ready to take on the mainstream as well – and the tracks also still feature lots of his wonderful guitar work, which inflects the music with these deeper feelings that really holds strong – and definitely lives up to the initial charm of Womack's first few records on Minit. Most of the set was recorded at Muscle Shoals, but as a place where Womack was travelling from LA – a fact that definitely shows in the mix of rootsy elements and tighter construction – yet still handled here without any of the cliches that so many other artists might hit when recording on that scene. Titles include the killer funky stepper "You're Welcome Stop On By", which has been sampled and covered many times over the years – plus "I Don't Wanna Be Hurt By Ya Love Again", "Let It Hang Out", "Lookin For A Love", "Doing It My Way", and "Don't Let Me Down".

✨✧ VariousRhythm & Bluesin By The Bayou – Livin, Lovin, & Lyin ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massive amount of musical discoveries from the Louisiana scene – a set that features a huge amount of unissued tracks from back in the day – but all with the kind of vibe that matches some of the best early soul and R&B on labels like Specialty, Minit, and Imperial! The wealth of sounds from the swamp state are mindblowing – because even though Louisiana gave us plenty of hits in the 50s and 60s, there was so much more talent bubbling just underneath – thanks not just to some top-shelf artists who never fully got their due – but also a great network of studios and labels too. Only a few of these tracks ever came out as singles around the time they were recorded – more were issued later on reissues in the 80s, and a lot more appear here for the first time ever – in a package that might well be the best so far in this excellent series. Titles include "Don't Know Why" by Little Nolton, "Give It Up" by Lonesome Sundown", "I Keep Crying" by Cookie & The Cupcakes, "Crying Crying" by Sticks Herman, "Baby If You Want To Play"b y James Freeman, "But You Thrill Me" by King Charles, "I Got It Made" by Guitar Jr, "Boogie With Calypso" by Joe August, "Don't Say" by Tabby Thomas, "Baby's Got Bad Feet" by Eddie Williams, "I Know" by Elizabeth, "I Would Be A Sinner" by Charles Sheffield, "Baby Baby Come To Papa" by King Carl, and "Mama's Little Girl" by Van Preston.

MinitsStill A Part Of Me/If You Don't Like My Apples ... 7-inch
Sounds Of Memphis/BGP (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99
Soaring soul from this sweet Memphis soul group – an overlooked female act who have a vibe that's similar to the Sweet Inspirations, but maybe hipper and funkier overall! "Still A Part Of Me" sounds like the best work by The Emotions on Volt Records – and the never-issued "If You Don't Like My Apples" does a great job of mixing a funky groove with a sweet sing-song lyric! 7-inch, Vinyl record
