Al GreenHigher Plane ... LP
Myrrh, 1981. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Al Green's definitely on a higher plane here – singing an album of gospel music after his abandonment of secular soul – but thankfully, still very much in the spirit of his best work on Hi Records! The religion here is very soft-pedaled – and most tunes are very warm soul numbers that have a similar glow to Al's best late work for Hi – no surprise, as Green's producing here himself, as he did after taking the reigns from Willie Mitchell, but still keeping all the best lessons learned from Willie in the early years. Titles include "Where Love Rules", "Higher Plane", "People Get Ready", "The Spirit Might Come", and "Amazing Grace". LP, Vinyl record album

Gypsy LanePredictions ... CD
Drive/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $19.99
Gypsy Lane were produced here by Jacques Morali, of Village People fame – but don't hold that against them, as the set's got a deeper vibe than you might expect! The group seem pretty tight on their own already – and work more as a tight ensemble funk group than the kind of disco studio creations Morali was more tied to – grooving at a level that seems informed by the best mid 70s advances of Earth Wind & Fire, which includes some warmer moments next to the uptempo cuts. Lead vocals are by Alfonso Carey, but other members of the group often harmonize alongside – and titles include "Show Me How To Groove", "We'll Have Love", "Hey Sister", and "I Could Use Some Loving".

Charlie HadenBallad Of The Fallen ... CD
ECM/Warner, 1983. Used ... $11.99
One of the greatest records that Charlie Haden ever did, and a record that stands as sort of a bookend to his Liberation Music album on Impulse. As with that record, he's got a large group on here, and also like that one, he's playing a batch of tracks that have a definite political bent. Players include Don Cherry, Carla Bley, Dewey Redman, Paul Motian, Jim Pepper, and Michael Mantler; and tracks include "Ballad Of The Fallen", "Too Late", "La Pasionaria", and "The People United Will Never Be Defeated". The sound's a little bit less harsh than his Impulse recording, but it's no less impassioned, and the record's a very emotional batch of music. CD

Tom T HallOld T's In Town/Soldier Of Fortune ... CD
RCA/Morello (UK), 1979/1980. New Copy ... $11.99
It's the end of the 70s, but Tom T Hall's still going strong – as you'll hear here on this pair of albums for RCA! Old T's In Town has Tom spinning out the kind of tunes that nobody could do as well as him – some sorry songs, some message tunes – but all delivered with wink and wit that always helped Hall step outside of both himself, and the larger country scene – able to comment on changing society better than most, and never get caught up in the trappings of the process. There's a lot of overlooked gems here – and titles include "Jesus On The Radio", "The Last Country Song", "Greed Kills More People Than Whiskey", "The Different Feeling", and "The Old Side Of Town". A Soldier Of Fortune is a record that almost seems to have Tom T Hall evoking all the changes that other folks had wrought in the industry during the 70s – some of the sense of history of Merle Haggard's early 70s concepts, or some of the identity that some of the outlaw singers could embrace – but all while working comfortably within the Nashville mainstream of the time. Given that so many other contemporaries were trying too hard for crossover material, it's great to hear Tom not only sticking to his guns – but also finding a way to give his wit and songwriting skills new life. Titles include "Back When Gas Was Thirty Cents A Gallon", "We're All In This Thing Alone", "The World According To Raymond", "The Six O'Clock News", "Texas Never Fell In Love With Me", and "Whiskey Castles".

Hedge & DonnaAll The Friendly Colours ... LP
Capitol, Early 70s. Very Good ... $4.99
Pretty sweet folk rock material from the husband/wife team of Hedge & Donna Capers – recorded with a soulful undercurrent, and a moody, dark feel that's somewhere in the neighborhood of some of Fred Neil's work on Capitol. Production is by Nik Venet, arrangements are by James Bond, and backings are light and gentle, but with a spaciously dark LA folksy sound. Titles include "The Pride Of The Rain", "Jeliene", "There Came A Question", "Jamie", and "Two People". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimi Hendrix ExperienceFreedom – Atlanta Pop Festival (200 gram pressing) ... LP
Legacy, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $31.99 36.98
A legendary performance from Jimi Hendrix – recorded at the second Atlanta Pop Festival just ten short weeks before Jimi's death, and a searing set throughout! The concert was the biggest that Hendrix ever played in the US – about 200,000 people in attendance – but the recording quality is very up-close and intimate, and very much in the same range as other important live performances by Jimi – making the set a key addition to his catalog! Tracks are nice and long, and filled with monstrous solos that really push past the studio versions – and Hendrix is in amazing form throughout, making us wonder what would have happened if he hadn't departed us all too soon. Titles include "Fire", "Lover Man", "Spanish Castle Magic", "Message To Love", "Room Full Of Mirrors", "Stone Free", "Voodoo Child", "Purple Haze", "Freedom", "All Along The Watchtower", "Hear My Train A Comin", and "Star Spangled Banner" – a nice touch, given that the set happened on July 4th, 1970!

Honey ConeSweet Replies (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Hot Wax/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
The second album by Honey Cone – and the one that really broke them out of the box! The record's got a groove that gets going right from the start – a sense of upbeat, soulful energy that really shows why the Honey Cone approach was so different than most of the girl groups who came before them – a groovier, more righteous style that shows that the ladies are very much in charge – and able to send things over the top with their unified energy! Production is great – very rumbling and bold, which further helps the groove – and titles include the huge hit "Want Ads" – a pre-disco cut that pointed the way towards future female soul groups of the mid 70s – plus "Deaf Blind Paralyzed", "Sunday Morning People", "My Mind's On Leaving", "We Belong Together", and "Blessed Be Our Love". CD features two bonus tracks – "Want Ads (unedited version)", and "The Day I Found Myself (single version)". CD

✨✧ Honey ConeTake Me With You ... LP
Hot Wax, 1970. Very Good ... $14.99
A brilliant early set from Honey Cone – and a perfect illustration of the way the trio really moved past simple girl group modes of the 60s! There's a bold, proud, righteous tone to the record right from the start – thanks to these soaringly soulful vocals from the girls, and these fuzzy arrangements from Tony Camillo – who seems to borrow a bit from the more righteous modes of Norman Whitfield at Motown, then give things a bit more of a girl soul twist! The combination is amazing, and the album's rock-solid all the way through – filled with great original tunes that really keep a unified feel throughout – and titles include "Are You Man Enough", "Take Me With You", "Girls It Ain't Easy", "While You're Out Looking For Sugar", "The Feeling's Gone", "Sunday Morning People", and "Take My Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jazzmeia HornSocial Call ... CD
Prestige, 2017. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The album's titled after a famous song by Betty Carter, and the sound of the set might well match her legacy too – as Jazzmeia Horn is clearly a singer we'll be hearing plenty from in years to come! Horn's got an incredible range – the first female jazz singer we've heard in years to really open up in the instrument-inspired style of the famous vocalists of years back – but she's also an artist who's not just copping old school jazz modes, as the presentation and choice of material is very strongly her own, and really blows us away! For everyone who's dug the music of top-shelf jazz singers like Betty Carter, Shirley Horn, and Dee Dee Bridgewater – Jazzmeia Horn may well be the next step forward. Players on the album include Victor Gould on piano, Ben Williams on bass, and Jerome Jennings on drums – and the set also features contributions from Josh Evans on trumpet, Frank Lacy on trombone, and Stacy Dillard on tenor. Titles include "Tight", "Up Above My Head", "Social Call", "People Make The World Go Round", "The Peacocks", "I Remember You", and "Afro Blue/Eye See You/Wade In The Water". CD

Freddie HubbardPolar AC ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
Warm and wonderful work from Freddie Hubbard – a killer of an album recorded for CTI, and one of his most soulful efforts for the label! The album's got a bit more of a human heart than some of the more cosmic sessions Freddie cut at the time – a bit more contemplative and introspective, but no less open-minded and electrically charged. The assortment of players is all top-shelf – with Billy Cobham, Airto, Lennie White, George Cables, Hubert Laws, and George Benson all backing Freddie up on the set – and titles include a great take on "People Make the World Go Round", plus "Naturally", and "Son of Sky Dive", which grooves just like its papa!

✨✧ Isley BrothersHarvest For The World ... LP
T Neck, 1976. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Fantastic Isleys from the mid-70s! The record has the group dropping their heavy funk style (which was sounding a bit tired by this point), and picking up a strident soul groove that buoyed their tracks with a spiritual sound that reminds us of some of the best moments from the Brother Brother Brother album! This one includes the incredible song "Harvest For The World", one of the most anthemic soul songs of the 70s – and a monster groover that mixes message-driven vocals with some tight guitar work. Other tracks include "You Still Feel the Need", "Let Me Down Easy", and "People of Today" – and the whole album's one of the group's best from the 70s! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Isley Jasper IsleyCaravan Of Love ... LP
CBS, 1985. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A huge 80s moment for the Isley Brothers empire – a set that has Ernie and Marvin Isley stepping away from the main group with Chris Jasper – to reinvent their sound for the 80s! The record still has all the slinky soul and upbeat funk of the Isley material from the late 70s – but also pushes the groove in a slightly different way – often using leaner arrangements that are focused on beats, basslines, and keyboards – which only seem to make the warm vocals of the trio sound even more seductive in the end! There's that subtle sense of majesty that the group always had in their music at their height – an influence that might well come from the presence of Jasper – and the album's noteworthy for the wonderful "Caravan Of Love", a soulful spiritual tune that's kind of to 80s soul what The Impressions "People Get Ready" was to 60s soul! The album's got a good mellow harmony sound, and other titles include "Liberation", "I Can Hardly Wait", "Insatiable Woman", and "If You Believe In Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie IvorySoul Discovery ... LP
Atco, 1965. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Obscure organ jazz record by the player who's probably best known to people from the good records he made with Willis Jackson on Prestige. This set's a nice stripped down set of tracks, with Ivory on organ, Paul Renfro on tenor, and Bill Nicks on drums. Good spare organ and tenor lines, with a mix of originals and jazz standards. Tracks include "The Monkey Woman", "Thank Heaven", "Do It To Death", "So What", and "Lonely Avenue". LP, Vinyl record album

Milt JacksonSunflower ... LP
CTI, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... $11.99
Proof that Milt Jackson was easily the hippest member of the Modern Jazz Quartet – and one of the few who could really open up into different sounds away from that combo! This sweet 70s set for CTI is totally great – a whole new chapter for Jackson's vibes, and a real re-setting of the soulful modes he'd explored as a leader in the 60s. There's a wonderfully warm and chromatic feel to the set from the start – as Milt's vibes are set in fuller arrangements from Don Sebesky – with added instrumentation from Herbie Hancock on electric piano, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, and Phil Bodner on reeds. The highlight of the album is a nice long take on "People Make The World Go Round", but it's all pretty sweet, and other titles include nice versions of "Sunflower" and "What Are You Doing For The Rest Of Your Life" – and Jackson's own "SKJ" and "For Someone I Love".

Lou JohnsonSweet Southern Soul (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Cotillion/Run Out Groove, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 25.98
An incredible bit of southern soul – and one of the few records ever by deep soul singer Lou Johnson! The masterpiece was recorded at the Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, at a time when the outfit was at the height of its powers – capturing Lou with a sweet-burning style that matches (if not betters) the best by Otis Redding or James Carr from the same period. Each song is a treasure, handled by Lou as if it were his own, and transformed completely by the amazing setting of the recording. Titles include "Tears Tears Tears", "Don't Play That Song", "People In Love", "It's In The Wind", "Rock Me Baby", and "I Can't Change". LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram vinyl pressing – in heavy cover! Run Out Groove pressing quantity based on pre-release demand – limited to 898 copies worldwide!)
