Cissy HoustonCissy Houston (Private Stock) ... CD CD format
Private Stock/Cherry Pop (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $8.99
One of the best 70s showcases for the mighty vocals of Cissy Houston – that tremendous approach that was rooted in gospel, but burst out strongly in the secular world – thanks to records like this! Houston's working here with clubby maestro Michael Zager, but the set's not all disco – and instead does a great job of mixing mellower cuts with more upbeat numbers – always with a focus on Cissy's bold approach to the lyrics. Titles include "He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother", "Tomorrow", "Morning Much Better", "Love's Holding On", "Love Is Something That Leads You", and "It Never Really Ended". CD

New Cissy HoustonThink It Over ... LP LP format
Private Stock, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
No need to think it over here – as the album's so groovy, we jump right in – thanks to plenty of upbeat disco arrangements from arranger Michael Zager! Zager worked previously with Cissy Houston, but here he really takes her out to the clubs – mixing strings and rhythms into some sweetly soaring backings that really work well with Houston's gospel-trained voice! There's a nice sense of drama to some of the grooves, but never too much to be campy – and titles include "Warning Danger", "An Umbrella Song", "Somebody Should Have Told Me", "Think It Over", "I Won't Be The One", and "Love Don't Hurt People". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

New Walter MurphyFifth Of Beethoven (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Private Stock/Hot Shot (UK), 1976. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A huge crossover album of the 70s – one that took an east coast disco groove, and introduced influences from a wide variety of classical themes – best summed up in the title hit "A Fifth Of Beethoven", which was a surprisingly successful radio tune at the time! The effort's a strange one, but was part of a larger movement at the time that was introducing many older musical modes – such as standards or showtunes – onto the dancefloor in an effort to give the less underground clubgoers something to sink their teeth into. And while the approach seemed like a bit of a gimmick, it was also probably inspired by Deodato's big hit with "Zarathustra" and a few other classical themes – echoed here by Murphy's great keyboard work on a few other numbers. The album features the classical tracks "Flight 76", "Night Fall", "Fifth Of Beethoven", and "Russian Dressing" – plus the non-classical Murphy originals "California Strut" (with vocals by Angie Bofil), "Be Your Own Best Friend", "Suite Love Symphony", and "Midnight Express". CD features bonus tracks – "Flight 76 (part 2)" and "Fifth Of Beethoven (ext version)". CD

New Norman ConnorsPassion ... LP LP format
Capitol, 1988. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
Late 80s – but Norman's still the king of the mellow soul groove! The album's got Connors working with his Starship Orchestra on a set of tunes that bubble forth with the same jazzy touches as in earlier years – showing a bit of the trace of their time in the group's silly costumes on the back cover, and the use of electric rhythms on a number of cuts – but more than making up for that with a soulful feel overall. Vocals are by Gabrielle Goodman and Spender Harrison – and Freddie Hubbard guest stars on one track. Titles include "Samba For Maria", "Welcome To My Life", "That's The Way Of The World", "I Am Your Melody", "Passion", and "Private Stock". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)
