Betty Harris/Big John HamiltonThere's A Break In The Road/Big Bad John ... 7-inch
SSS International/Fraternity, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A great soul track from the legendary Betty Harris – one that's written by Allen Toussaint, produced by him and Marshal Sehorn, and with a funky drum in the beginning that's right off a Meters' record! Then, Betty comes in with some killer New Orleans soul vocals and rips the whole track to pieces! "Big Bad John" is a fantastic funk track from Big John Hamilton – one that would be worth it alone for the massive break and bassline at the start, but which just gets better and better as the tune rolls on – with this southern funk sound that's totally on the money! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Peggy ScottShe's Got It All – Rare 70s Soul ... CD
Shout (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Obscure 70s work from southern soul vocalist Peggy Scott – recorded during some lesser-known years in her career! Peggy's probably best known for her work with Jo Jo Benson on SSS International in the late 60s – and for her recent fame as Peggy Scott-Adams – but here, she's heard on a selection of late 70s sides recorded at Malaco Records, all of which update her older style with a slightly more contemporary vibe! The sessions were produced by Bob McRee, and although a few tracks were issued previously as singles in Europe, this CD presents them as an album for the first time ever – showing a Scott who's much more mature than her early duet soul years, and working in a mix of modes that includes a number of tracks aimed at the dancefloor – a bit like some of her contemporaries at TK Records during the same time. McRee's production is smooth, but never dominates the vocals – and the clubbier tracks still come off nicely thanks to Peggy's handling of the lyrics – in a way that reminds us of some of the deeper soul disco on Prelude. Titles include "Make It Soon", "Let Me Untie You", "Make Me Loose", "You've Got It All", "Your Loving Is Tasty", "Came Down Hard On Me Baby", "Start My Motor", and "Firepower". CD

✨✧ Kim FowleyInternational Heroes (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Capitol/Vinilisssimo (Spain), 1973. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Kim Fowley's best records as an artist – and way up there in greatness with some of the best he produced for everyone else, too! '73's International Heroes was Kim's second album for Capitol Records, and unlike the strange, underground rock vibe on his first Capitol effort, this one has a far more ambitious production aesthetic. It's a cool mix of trashy and rambunctious rockers, with more adventurous acoustic instrumentation at times. Kim's vocals are as great here as they'd ever be – not nearly as gruff as on I'm Bad – and sweetened even more here by some groovy backing vocals. We REALLY love this record! Includes "International Heroes", "ESP Reader", "Ugly Stories About Rock Stars And The War", "I Hate You", "Born Dancer", "World Wide Love", "Dancing All Nite" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ LaghoniaGlue (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mag/Vinilisssimo (Spain), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Great work from Laghonia – the group who later grew into We All Together, and who work here with a really wonderful sound that blends garage and psych roots with some of the more sophisticated touches they would use in their later group! The material here still has echoes of the cool Peruvian underground use of American and British influences – but there's also some loftier ideas going on too – not in a proggish way, although the instrumentation is pretty well-crafted – but more in a blend of both vocal and instrumental harmonies, set to English language lyrics that should have gotten these guys a lot more play on the international scene. There's a cool Beatles vibe on some of the best tracks – but never in a slavish copycat way – and titles include "Neighbor", "The Sand Man", "Baby Baby", "Glue", and "Trouble Child" – plus the great Latin rock number "Bahia" – which almost has a Santana-like sort of jamming! LP, Vinyl record album
