Jimmy HolidayTurning Point – The Exciting Voice Of Jimmy Holiday ... LP
Minit, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Dang, who is this guy? Jimmy's got a really wonderful voice (the title wasn't kidding!), with the mix of rootsiness and intensity that you'd find in the best mid 60s sides by Ben E King, inflected by some of the harder soul sound of the Minit label. Calvin Carter's producing the set here – working during the post Vee Jay years in LA – and arrangements are by Rene Hall and Jimmy Gordon. The set's a treasure, the kind of lost soul album that keeps you hitting these pages every week – and it's filled with great tracks like "I'm Gonna Move To The City", "The Turning Point", "In The Eyes Of My Girl", "I Don't Want To Hear It", and "I've Got To Live While I Can". LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice Japanese pressing! Vinyl is great – and cover has some light aging, but is nice overall.)

Bobby WomackFly Me To The Moon ... LP
Minit, 1968. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A completely sublime first album from the great Bobby Womack – and a set that already has him sounding quite different than any of his contemporaries! Bobby's got a southern soul vibe at the start, to be sure – but he also works things in this amazingly fresh way, too – a bit of Cali sun mixed in with his well-penned tunes – and a mature, confident approach that really pushes male soul in a new direction. The vocals are incredible – fresh, and raw, and with that warm little rasp that made him stand out so strongly from other singers of the late 60s – Bobby's personal touch that still always sends us after all these years. The arrangements are superb, with a mix of small-combo organ/guitar southern grooving, and just the right touches of larger orchestrations to push the whole thing over the top. The songwriting is superb – with some of Bobby's best early tracks, like "What Is This", "I'm In Love", and "Baby! You Oughta Think it Over". Even the non-original tracks are wonderful – like the track "Fly Me to the Moon", which Bobby manages to completely make his own! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original stereo pressing with deep groove. NOTE – Cover is stained, wrinkled and flaky on the bottom half.)

✨✧ Bobby WomackMy Prescription (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Minit/Premium Cool, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Completely wonderful work from Bobby Womack – one of those records that shows why Bobby's so different from other singers, right from the start! Womack's guitar lines are beautiful – and echo a lot of country styles alongside his raspy vocals – but hardly at a level that's cliched country soul at all, given the overall freshness of the arrangements! Bobby handled the charts, along with Glen Spreen and Mike Leech – and the great Chips Moman produced, and gives the set a sparkling southern style overall – but one that also seems to point strongly towards Womack's wider reach towards the west coast. Womack's songwriting is already great, but even the tracks here by other writers still get a treatment that really make them his own – including Bobby's classic take on "Everyone's Gone To The Moon". Original tracks include "How I Miss You Baby", "More Than I Can Stand", "It's Gonna Rain", "Tried & Convicted", and "Thank You". LP, Vinyl record album

Lea RobertsExcuse Me, I Want To Talk To You ... LP
United Artists, 1978. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A nice batch of mellow easy soul tracks that often gets overlooked! Lea Roberts cut some harder soul sides for Minit in the 60's, but this mid 70's album has her working with Wade Marcus on a set of tracks that have a smoother production sound, but which also focus on Lea's lovely soulful voice. The record's got some great songwrigint in kind of an indie southern soul mode, with a number of great tracks by "E Clay". Tracks include "Give it Back", "Excuse Me", "Find A Place", "I'm Losing My Mind", and "Let It Shine". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bobby WomackLookin' For A Love Again ... LP
United Artists, 1974. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
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".

VariousBig City Soul Vol 1 (EMI titles) ... CD
Goldmine (UK), Late 60s. Used ... $4.99
Great collection of rare uptown soul cuts from the United Artists, Liberty, and Minit labels, with 27 fantastic tracks of heavenly well-produced soul tracks by people like Homer Banks, June Jackson, The Diplomats, Estelle Brown, Betty Turner, Danny Wagner, and other artists that you'll pay dearly for on the originals. Plus, there's also rare material by more famous folks like Garnett Mimms, The O'Jays, and Gene McDaniels. Like finding a great radio show on some college station on the eastern seaboard on a summer night! CD

✨✧ DiplomatsGreatest Recordings ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Here's the reason why we love reissue CDs – because they offer an incredible look at groups that have nearly been forgotten in the pages of music history! The Diplomats were an east coast group who never cracked the top of the charts, but who made some excellent work during the 60s – a huge amount of which is collected on this great CD! The set brings together titles recorded for labels that include Dynamo, Arock, Wand, and Minit – as well as a number of previously unissued titles – all of which show The Diplomats to be a tremendous vocal group, with a range as great as The Dells, and a sound that really sets the scene for later east coast groups like The Moments or The Whatnauts. 25 titles in all, plus great notes on the music – and titles that include "Honest To Goodness", "I'm So Glad I Found You", "Accept Me", "Can't Get You Off My Mind", "Cards On The Table", "I Am A Witness", Soul Teacher", "Hey Mr Taxi Driver", "So Far Away", "Sure As The Stars Shine", and "Jerking Time".

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

✨✧ Orient ExpressOrient Express ... LP
Mainstream, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
We'd never come across Orient Express before, one of the rare rock-oriented acts on the Mainsteam jazz label in the late 60s and 70s – but after a spin of this super rare hybrid of heavy psychedelic rock, HUGE percussion and electric Eastern string effects we're hooked! The group mixes heavy use of the electric sitar Danelectro started producing at the time, layering it with equally trippy turns on electric oud, melodica and minitar. It's full of heavy tribal percussive pounding, and good old fashioned hard rock – which makes for one of the trippiest arse whompins' we've had in a while! Amazing stuff, especially if you're willing to indulge a nice big dose of heavy psych rock along with your big drum breaks and beats. The Eastern vibe seems to more or less be a shtick with these guys – which would be annoying ONLY if the results weren't so hot! Tracks include "Fruit Of The Desert", "Layla", "Birds Of India", "Train To Bombay", "Caravan Of Silk", "Azaar", "Cobra Fever", "A Little Star" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
