Cissy HoustonCissy Houston (Private Stock) ... CD
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

MobMob (Private Stock) ... LP
Private Stock, 1975. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Obscure 2nd album by the band who struck it big in both the Northern soul and Beach music scenes with the single from their first album, "I Dig Everything About You". Like that album, this one's a nice batch of soul tracks by a bunch of white guys who have a nice feel for a groove, and a real dedication to producing a mellow soulful sound. Tracks include "Get It Up For Love", "I Can't Stop This Love Song", "When You Get Right Down To It", "Who's Foolin' Who", and "Magical Lady". LP, Vinyl record album

Walter MurphyFifth Of Beethoven (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Private Stock/Hot Shot (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99
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

Crippled Dick (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little collection of obscure singles from the height of the British underground – punk, post-punk, and new wave delights – all collected together with a fair bit of rare numbers in the set! The vibe here is a bit more straightforward than other post-punk set's we've stocked for the dancefloor – and given that most of these numbers were 7" singles that clocked in at 3 minutes or less, even when they go way out, they still come back to bass pretty quickly. As usual with Crippled Dick, the whole thing's a cut above the average – in a way that might have you digging through bins for rare UK singles, even if you didn't previously care. Titles include "Private Plane" by Thomas Leer, "Making Love With My Wife" by Henry Badowski, "The Man Man Man" by Mark Beer, "This Is Your Life" by Glaxo Babies, "Constant Beat" by Contact, "Gerry & the Holograms" by Gerry & The Holograms, "Redbox" by I Jog & The Tracksuits, "Jive Jive" by Brian Brain, "Drumbeat For Baby" by Weekend, and "Don't Try To Cure Yourself" by They Must Be Russians.
