ShirellesHappy & In Love/The Shirelles (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1971/1972. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Two albums and bonus tracks too – all rare material from an overlooked chapter of The Shirelles' career! First up is Happy & In Love, a great second chapter for The Shirelles – hardly the girl group pop they cut in the 60s, and instead a more righteous soul style for the 70s – in a mode that's like Honey Cone or Three Degrees! The backings are nice and soulful – almost funky at times – with arrangements from George Andrews and Joe Scott that mix fuller strings with tighter grooves at the core – in a way that really sets the vocals free amidst some very interesting material! Had the girls only cut this record, it might have been a 70s soul hit – but it's unfortunately gotten lost to the shifting sands of time because it's not as iconic as their hits. Don't make that mistake, though, because the album's a real charmer – and titles include "Boy You're Too Young", "There's Nothing In This World", "It's Gonna Take A Miracle", "Take Me", "We Got A Lot Of Lovin To Do", and "Strange I Still Love You". The 1972 album The Shirelles is surprisingly great later work by The Shirelles – nice and soulful, thanks to arrangements from David Van De Pitte and Wade Marcus – both of whom push the trio way past their roots, into more sophisticated group soul for the 70s! The approach carries the best (then) contemporary styles from New York and Philly – particularly that strong way of mixing group vocals with focused grooves – as you'd hear from some of the more successful male groups of the time on RCA, like Main Ingredient or Choice Four. The Shirelles have a strong sense of harmony that really pushes the tunes forward – and the material is nice and creative – with titles that include "Walk On In", "Brother Brother", "Sunday Dreaming", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Let's Stay Together", "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart", and "Drowning In The Sea Of Love". CD also features bonus tracks – "Let's Give Each Other Love", "Do What You've A Mind To", and "Touch The Wind". CD

✨✧ Shirelles & King CurtisShirelles & King Curtis Give A Twist Party (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Scepter/Sundazed, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
And give a party they do – a really rocking, raw soul party that goes way past any teeny-bopper sort of associations with the "twist" – into a realm that may well make the album The Shirelles greatest record ever! Both King Curtis and The Shirelles trade tracks back and forth – in a style that will definitely have you forget the twist in the title, because the overall feel is mostly R&B and raw soul – served up with a mighty nice groove! The Shirelles hit some great harmonies in an uptempo mode – way past simple chart pop, and nicely soulful throughout – and King Curtis plays tenor and sings a bit, and turns in some nice tracks that rank with his early 60s work for the Fire/Fury label! Titles include "Mister Twister", "New Orleans", "Welcome Home Baby", "Potato Chips", "Mama Here Comes The Bride", "Take The Last Train Home", and "Love Is A Swinging Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousDJ Snowboy Presents The Good Foot – The Soundtrack To His Soho Night ... CD
BGP (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $9.99
A different groove than usual from the mighty Snowboy – not the Latin you may know from his own records, or the funk you'll find on his other compilations – but instead a smoking batch of 60s soul, with a really wonderful batch of well-chosen cuts throughout! The album's a counterpart to Snowboy's hip Soho club night – and it's got the feel of mod London in the 60s, but the side of the city that was overflowing with appreciation for American soul, jazz, and R&B! Most artists here are familiar, but the cuts are mostly nice and obscure – really great singles and a few key album tracks – all the kind of wonderful numbers you'll only find at a set spun by a legendary DJ like this. Titles include "You Don't Love Me" by ZZ Hill, "Can't Shake It" by Etta James, "Soul Brothers Testify (part 2)" by Chester Randle's Soul Senders, "Just A Mistake" by The Barrino Brothers, "Coming Back To Me Baby" by James Carr, "Boys" by The Shirelles, "Nuthern Like Thuthern" by Willis Jackson, "Do The See Saw" by The Contours, "The Watusi Roll" by Hank Marr, "Looking At The Future" by Little Johnny Taylor, "Misery" by The Dynamics, "I Say You're Driving Me Crazy" by Dorothy Berry, "I'll Give You My Love" by Sun Ann Jones, and "Baby Don't You Know" by The Brownettes.

VariousNorthern Soul Story Vol 1 – The Twisted Wheel ... CD
Sony (UK), 1960s. Used ... $7.99
Volume 1 of this incredible series – a treasure trove of 60s soul, all of it music that played big at the legendary Twisted Wheel! The club was one of the early hotbeds of Northern Soul activity in the UK – and the cuts here have a raw-edged, hard-grooving quality that showcases the mix of R&B and soul that was first going down in the scene – pulled together from a range of smaller label 45s, and presented by Ian Dewhirst with track-by-track notes, and some good memories from years back as well! Titles include "Hide & Go Seek" by Bunker Hill, "That's What I Want To Know" by James Carr, "No Sad Songs" by Oscar Toney, "My Elusive Dreams" by Moses & Joshua Dillard, "A Little Bit Of Something" by Little Richard, "It's The Beat" by Major Lance, "Look What You've Done To My Heart" by Shirley & The Shirelles, "The Cheater" by Bob Kuban & The In-Men, "Magic Potion" by Lou Johnson, "I Need Your Love So Desperately" by Peaches & Herb, "Breakin Down The Walls Of Heartache" by The Bandwagon, "Everybody's Going To The Love-In" by Bob Brady & The Con-Chords, and "You're Gonna Make Me Love You" by Sandi Sheldon. 25 tracks in all!

VariousSoul On The Real Side #3 ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), 1970s/2015. New Copy ... $16.99
A set that's heavy on classic cuts from the 70s, but throws in a few contemporary numbers too – all in this wonderful blend of music that's got a wicked mellow groove all the way through! The style is a bit modern soul, but more in that smooth 70s mellow style we love so much – lots of midtempo rhythms, less disco inflections, and plenty of room for amazing lead vocals that really send the tunes home with a hell of a lot of warmth and soul! Familiar cuts mix with lesser-known gems we'd totally missed – and titles include "Getaway" by Walter Thomas, "All I Want Is You" by Convertion, "I Need You More Than Ever" by The Montclairs, "Keep On Pushing Love" by Al Green, "Work To Do" by The Main Ingredient, "Don't Walk Away" by General Johnson, "You Got It" by Roy G Hemmings, "The Walk" by Jesse Gomez & TCB, "If Loving You Is All I Have To Do" by Anna Brooks, "Corazon" by LTG Exchange, "Mercy Mercy Me/Inner City Blues/What's Going On" by The Shirelles, "Love Knocked You Down" by The Nights, and "Just To Be With You" by The O'Jays.
