Vincent BellPop Goes The Electric Sitar ... LP
Decca, Late 60s. Very Good ... $19.99
The great studio guitarist Vincent Bell lays down a set of groovy poppy sitar cuts, with a sound that's part Indian pop, part easy groove – and all wild 60s!

John Carter TrioEchoes From Rudolph's (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ibedon/No Business (Lithuania), 1977. New Copy 2 CDs ... $19.99
A real lost chapter of 70s genius from reedman John Carter – a set done after his better-known recordings with Bobby Bradford, in a style that's much more spacious overall! The material features a trio – with Carter on both soprano sax and clarinet, both instruments he plays with an incredible dexterity and sensitivity in sound – much looser and more open to sudden shifts of inspiration than his music with Bradford – with accompaniment from Stanley Carter on bass and William Jeffrey on drums and percussion! The style is free, but never indulgently so – and Carter finds this way to always reach for melodic moments even at his most intense – creating the kind of magic that few other musicians might with his instruments. Titles include "Echoes From Rudolph's", "To A Fallen Poppy", "The Last Sunday", "Armin", and "Angles". 2CD set adds in a whole disc of extra material from the trio – with a 19 minute "Echoes From Rudolphs/To A Fallen Poppy", and a very long stretch of different improvised passages!

DelfonicsLa La Means I Love You ... LP
Philly Groove, 1968. Very Good- ... $24.99
A landmark album in harmony soul – one of those records that pushed the genre to a whole new level! The Delfonics emerge fully formed here as one of the most compelling groups of their time – a tremendous trio with a really unique approach to soul music – one that's heartfelt and heartbreaking, but never too sweet to be cloying or poppy – definitely just the right groove to keep things hip while also cracking the charts! The album's their first full collaboration with legendary producer Thom Bell – and it's got a sound that's summed up perfectly in the quintessential cut "La La Means I Love You" – and which is followed through beautifully on a batch of tracks that includes "Losing You", "Can You Remember", "You're Gone", "I'm Sorry", and "Break Your Promise". LP, Vinyl record album

DelfonicsLa La Means I Love You/Sound Of Sexy Soul (plus bonus track) ... CD
Philly Groove/Kent (UK), 1968/1969. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Amazing work by The Delfonics – their first 2 albums, back to back on a single CD! La La Means I Love You is a landmark album in harmony soul – one of those records that pushed the genre to a whole new level! The Delfonics emerge fully formed here as one of the most compelling groups of their time – a tremendous trio with a really unique approach to soul music – one that's heartfelt and heartbreaking, but never too sweet to be cloying or poppy – definitely just the right groove to keep things hip while also cracking the charts! The album's their first full collaboration with legendary producer Thom Bell – and it's got a sound that's summed up perfectly in the quintessential cut "La La Means I Love You" – and which is followed through beautifully on a batch of tracks that includes "Losing You", "Can You Remember", "You're Gone", "I'm Sorry", and "Break Your Promise". Sound Of Sexy Soul is an equally groundbreaking album of vocal group soul – right from the first note! The record kicks off with the sublime "Ready Or Not, Here I Come" – which starts with fierce stepping strings that are actually funky, then soars into some of the best harmonies the group ever put to record, superbly arranged by the great Thom Bell, who also wrote the track. As the album progresses, the sound expands further to encompass many elements that would become the blueprint for vocal groups over the next few years – like twangy electric sitar, cascading orchestrations, and pinched lead vocals that take a lot more chances than most group singers had been taking for years! There's still a bit of a 60s soul sound to some of the cuts, but the album's a watershed – not only for Thom Bell and the group, but for harmony soul as well! Titles include "Ready Or Not Here I Come", "My New Love", "Loving Him", "With These Hands", "Somebody Loves You", and "Everytime I See My Baby". CD also features the bonus track "You Got Yours & I'll Get Mine". CD

EuphoriaEuphoria ... LP
Heritage/Vinilisssimo, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
Sweet sunshiney wonderfulness from an incredibly groovy group – a quartet of voices who are equally trained in folk and harmony modes, but who move into some even hipper territory on this record! The album was arranged by Joe Renzetti and produced by Jerry Ross – and it's got a nicely balanced approach that's poppy, but never too much so – that great part of the post-folk generation that's come to be known as Sunshine Pop, and which is rarely presented with such perfection as on a set like this! Roger and Wendy Penney were the lead vocalists – and instrumentation includes electric autoharp and keyboards from Roger, plus bass from Wendy. Backings are often light and breezy – a perfect fit for the vocals – and titles include "Sun & Shadow", "What A Day", "There Is Now", "Ride The Magic Carpet", "Sleep", "Calm Down", "Walkin Thru The City", and "Tucscon".

ExposeWhat You Don't Know (3CD set – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/Cherry Pop (UK), 1989. New Copy 3CD ... $18.99
The female pop soul trio was alive and well in the 80s – morphed strongly from its 60s girl group roots and 70s disco chorus mode – to the point where a group like Expose was perfectly poised to take over the top of the charts! That catchy, poppy style is very firmly in place here – mixing the balance of voices with beats in a very nice way – never out to challenge the soul music establishment, but certainly out to win a few new ears, thanks to the upbeat Miami beats in the music. Titles include "Stop Listen Look & Think", "Let Me Down Easy", "What You Don't Know", "When I Looked At Him", "Tell Me Why", "Still Hung Up On You", "Your Baby Never Looked Good In Blue", "Didn't It Hurt To Hurt Me", "Walk Along With Me", "Love Don't Hurt Until You Fall", and "Now That I Found You". 3CD set is filled with a HUGE amount of bonus material – 34 alternate versions, mixes, remixes, and more – some from the many 12" single releases from the album, but a number of previously unissued tracks too!

GQFace To Face ... LP
Arista, 1981. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Wonderfully solid grooving from GQ – an album issued a few years after their bigger hits, but still plenty great overall! The trio have a great way of laying out a sweet harmony without getting too cloying, nor too poppy – and the best cuts here glide along beautifully in a mellow or midtempo mode! There's a tightness here that reminds us of Tavares or The Main Ingredient at their best – but a bit more modern soul overall, and often with a very slight nod towards the growing 80s groove mode. Titles include "Face To Face", "I Love", "Sad Girl", "Shy Baby", "Shake", "You've Got The Floor", "Dark Side Of The Sun", and "Boogie Shoogie Feelin". LP, Vinyl record album

Graham Central StationNow Do U Wanta Dance/My Radio Sure Sounds Good To Me/Star Walk (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
A trio of classic late 70s funk records from Larry Graham & Graham Central Station! Now Do U Wanta Dance is their 1977 LP and they're still burning strong here – resisting the temptation to go fully into the disco sound you might guess from the "dance" in the title, and if anything, pulling up the bass-heavy funk even more! The set's got a super-tight feel that's kind of a distillation of the successful Graham Central Station sound of earlier albums, but still comes together perfectly overall – in a mode that's clearly having a huge influence on the rest of west coast funk. They they open up sound up a fair bit on My Radio Sure Sounds Good To Me – a set that really feels like it might've influenced Prince pretty strong, given the tightly poppy vibe in the construction of the soul sound. Star Walk has a great, bass heavy funk like the the earlier work – but here he's moving into the solo spotlight a bit more than before, but it's still got an unstoppable Graham Central Station groove! 27 tracks on 2CDs – including "Lead Me On", "Crazy Chicken", "Now Do U Wanta Dance", "Last Train", "Earthquake","Love & Happiness", the tightly stepping groover "Is It Love", which has a great west coast slow funk approach, the P-Funky "Are You Happy","Turn It Out", "Pow", "Boogie Witcha Baby", and "Mr Friend", "Sneaky Freak", "Star Walk", "Foxy Lady", "Tonight", "Scream", and "The Entertainer". Also includes a pair of bonus single edits as bonus tracks! CD

Claire HoganJust Imagine ... LP
MGM, 1955. Very Good ... $14.99
One of the few albums ever cut by Claire Hogan – an overlooked 50s singer with a wonderfully lush sort of style! Claire's never soppy or poppy, but has a way of sliding into the tunes with this easygoing approach that's mighty nice – definitely informed by jazz, but not really jazz vocals either – although she definitely knows how to make things swing at all the right moments! Backings are by LeRoy Holmes, who's already showing an equal skill for a subtle swing – and songs are all by the team of DeSylva, Brown, & Henderson – with titles that include "Just Imagine", "My Sin", "Thank You Father", "If I Had A Talking Picture Of You", "Lucky In Love", and "I'll Know Him".

✨✧ Hollywood BeyondIf (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Cherry Pop (UK), 1987. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99
A classic bit of crossover soul from the British scene of the 80s – a record that's unabashedly poppy, but in a way that's held up nicely over the years! Hollywood Beyond seem to borrow plenty of production and instrumentation from the bigger acts of the period – especially the new romantics, whose influence by American soul is taken back here on some of the ballads – leaving the upbeat tracks to have more of a club music approach, but in that pre-house style that was big in the UK at the time. Titles include "Vision Of Love", "After Midnight", "Save Me", "No More Tears", "Metal On Glass", "Hollywood Beyond", "Opening Scenario", and "Crimes Of Passion". 2CD version features 11 more bonus tracks from singles – including "What's The Color Of Money (12" version)", "What's The Color Of Money (go ask Alice rmx)", "No More Tears (passion play dance mix)", "Save Me (ext mix)", "No More Tears (ext mix)", "Gift To The Innocent (Paw Pay in Nassau)", and "After Midnight (quiet moment)".

Michael JacksonThriller ... LP
Epic, 1982. Sealed Gatefold ... $19.99
Arguably the last true moment of genius in Michael Jackson's career – a record that sold a bazillion copies around the world – and for plenty good reason! Michael's still working here with Quincy Jones – in territory that steps nicely from the Off The Wall groove, into territory that's somewhat more poppy, but still quite soulful overall. And yes, the success of the album meant that cuts like "Billie Jean", "Thriller", and "Beat It" got plenty of play – thanks to both heavy radio and video rotation – but a few decades later, there's still a tremendous amount of depth here – on great cuts like "Human Nature", "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin", and "PYT" – which all hold up nicely!

✨✧ Evelyn Champagne KingSmooth Talk ... LP
RCA, 1977. Very Good ... $1.99
Wonderfully smooth soul from Evelyn Champagne King – one of her real standouts from the early days, and a tremendous collaboration with producer/arranger T Life! The sound here is upbeat and catchy, but never too poppy – done with a slight hint of that groove that King would hit more famously in the 80s, but served up here with a deeper sense of warmth, and a slightly more laidback feel. King is classy without being cloying – just like a sip of the right sort of champagne – and T Life's backings often have a slight undercurrent of funk. Titles include the club classic "Shame" – plus "Smooth Talk", "Til I Come Off The Road", "Dancin, Dancin, Dancin", "Nobody Knows", "We're Going To A Party", and "The Show Is Over".

KliqueIt's Winning Time ... CD
MCA/Universal (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... About June 13, 2018
It's definitely winning time for Klique – as the trio grooves here with a lean, clean sound that's totally great! Despite the silly jumpsuits on the cover, the group actually have a pretty nice sound in the grooves – one that's kind of a poppy approach to the boogie, filled with plenty of nice hooks and riffing rhythms – all laid out with production that never gets too cluttered or cliched! The sound is simple, but that's it's strongest suit – and the album's got a nice focused quality overall. Titles include "Love's Dance", "It's Winning Time", "From Now On", "Better Times", "So In Love With You", "I Think You Know", "Middle Of A Slow Dance", and "You Brought My Love To Life". CD

Birgit LystagerBirgit Lystager ... LP
Production Dessinee (Japan), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $42.99
A very groovy singer – with a really wonderful feel! Birgit hails from Denmark, and has the icy Scandinavian jazz vocal approach of singers like Monica Zetterlund or Karin Krog – equally well suited to standard jazz material, as it is to electric oriented tunes or bossa nova, both of which appear on this set! The overall style is almost in a Sergio Mendes Brasil 66 style – light poppy touches at times, bubbling with a bit of bossa and some cool grooves laid out on organ and piano, with some occasional backing vocals on a few tracks. Groovy sunshine pop from the Baltic scene of the early 70s – with tracks that include versions of "Sunny", "Pretty World", "Fool On The Hill", "Melting Pot", "Make It With You", "Gimme Little Sign", and "Sometimes".

Ed MottaEntre E Ouca (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner/Polysom (Brazil), 1992. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Early soul material from the great Ed Motta – a record that really has the Brazilian singer hitting his stride! Ed's a singer that we've loved for many years, and await eagerly for each new record – but this early 90s set is one of his first great musical moments, a set that has him really finding his voice, and following strongly in the Brazilian soul tradition of his famous uncle, Tim Maia! And although Motta had worked in some more beat-heavy, poppy modes on previous records, this one has a much richer vibe – and shows the love of older 70s styles that would reemerge later on his seminal AOR set – done here with leaner, more stripped down modes that are mighty nice. The songwriting is great – and Motta's voice, as always, is incredible – and the instrumentation features a fair bit of Fender Rhodes and acoustic piano, which really further the warmth of the vocals. Titles include "Bem Longe", "Agora Que O Dia Accordou", "Entre E Ouca", "A Vontade", and "Se Ate As 11". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the strongest albums by Rockie Robbins – and they're all pretty darn great – thanks to some sweet production and arrangements from the team of Skip Scarborough and Jerry Peters! Skip and Jerry bring a nice sense of smoothness to Rockie's Chicago-forged sound – expanding his sound with fuller arrangements than before, and creating a style here that's tight and professional, yet never slick or poppy. Titles include "Time To Think", "I Believe In Love", "My Old Friend", "Look Before You Leap", "Give Our Love A Chance", "An Act Of Love", "I'll Turn To You", "For You For Love", and "Talk To Me".

Edwin StarrSoul Master ... LP
Gordy, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A mod soul classic from the great Edwin Starr – a set that bridges his years in the Detroit underground and his sudden rise to fame at Motown! The tracks here have a really deep basement grooving sort of vibe – catchy, but less poppy than the usual Motown – and more with the kind of grit you'd find on some of the smaller indies of the time – not just in Edwin's vocals, but in the overall rhythms as well! There's loads of dancefloor soul cuts here, mixed with some overlooked gems – and the whole thing's wonderful, especially if you only know Edwin's later hits. Titles include "Agent Double O Soul", "I Am The Man For You Baby", "Stop Her On Sight", "I Want My Baby Back", "Soul Master", "Headline News", and "My Weakness Is You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousC88 (3CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1988. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
The third great volume in this wonderful series that looks at the huge explosion of British indie rock in the mid 80s – and a collection that maybe compiles tracks from the last great year of the scene! Not that British music stopped dead in its tracks – but the following year saw dance/house come in from surprising corners, and many groups either hit big commercial fame, or step sideways into other modes – which maybe made 1988 the last great year for guitar-driven, sharply-penned tracks like these! As with other projects of this nature from Cherry Red, the presentation is wonderful – loads of tracks in a 5" square box, with a big bonus book of notes too – all delivering a lot of greatness in a tiny package. The set features 71 tracks in all – and titles include "The Camera Loves Me" by Would Be Goods, "Clear" by Whirl, "On Tape" by the Pooh Sticks, "Lies" by Bridewell Taxis, "One Summer" by Moss Poles, "Tattered Tangled & Torn" by Bradford, "Creamation Town" by The Poppyheads, "High" by Choo Choo Train, "Elephant Stone (7" version)" by The Stone Roses, "Mary's Garden" by Mock Turtles, "Ballad Of Jet Harris" by Apple Boutique, "Heaven Knows" by The Flatmates, "They Fell For Words Like Love" by Hangman's Beautiful Daughters, "Prize" by Kitchens Of Distinction, "Shame On You" by The Darling Buds, "Dying For It" by The Vaselines, "Curry Crazy" by Bad Dream Fancy Dress, "Glastonbury" by Rodney Allen, "Shake" by The Corn Dollies, "Cubans In The Bluefields" by East Village, "Who Works The Weather" by The Great Leap Forward, and "Sun Sea Sand" by The Revolving Paint Dream.
