✨✧ Singers Unlimited & Art Van DammeInvitation ... CD
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest albums ever cut by the Singers Unlimited – thanks to great instrumentation from the mighty Art Van Damme! Art plays accordion – in a way that works perfectly with the banks of sound and sweetness we love from the group – an instrument whose own breathy tones turns out to be a perfect accompaniment for their harmonies, especially in the way it sets a very melancholy mood! Other instrumentation is great too – relatively spare use of the guitar of Sigi Schwab, plus vibes from Heribert Thusek, bass from Eberhard Weber, and drums from Charly Antolini – and titles include a really sublime version of Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Wave", plus "Violets For Your Furs", "Cherry", "Spring Is Here", "Ecstasy", "We Could Be Flying", and "Invitation".

Anita KerrAll You Need Is Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
All you need is love – that, and some great vocals and backings as well! Anita Kerr really gets groovy on this little set – taking the famous sound of her harmony quartet into some great late 60s territory – a range of pop tunes hinted at by the Beatles reference on the cover – all arranged and conducted by Anita herself, and produced with some great Sunshine Pop touches! The mixed male/female sound of the quartet is a nice precursor to the 70s recordings by Singers Unlimited – sweet and smooth, but bumped along by a groove on most of these tracks – and titles include "Autumn Afternoon", "No Salt On Her Tail", "Holiday", "A Natural Woman", "Never My Love", "I Make A Fool Of Myself", and "The Last Waltz". CD features bonus tracks – "The Smile You Save For Strangers", "I Can't Help Remembering You", and "For Bert". CD

Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of FriendsFull Circle (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Now Sounds (UK), 2007. New Copy ... $8.99
A wonderful return to form for Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of Friends – working here in the same sublime space they hit on their one and only album for A&M Records in the 60s! The style here is somewhat more modern – but still mostly 70s-styled, as opposed to contemporary – and in a way, Nichols and the group hit some of the warmer modes that groups like Free Design or Singers Unlimited were using at the start of the 70s. All tunes are originals by Roger, most penned with his early songwriting partner Paul Williams – and the vocals by Nichols, Murray MacLeod, and Melinda MacLeod are presented with some great light instrumentation – mostly keyboards, guitar, and bass from Roger himself. We're surprised at how much we like this one – and instead of thinking of it as an album recorded 40 years after the group's debut, we'd rather like to think of it as a "lost" session from the early 70s – because that's the way it sounds overall! Titles include "The Winner's Theme", "I Kept On Loving You", "Let Me Be The One", "Out In The Country", "You're Foolin Nobody", "Always You", "I'm Comin To The Best Part Of My Life", "Look Around", "I'm Gonna Find Her", "Talk It Over In The Morning", and "Watching You". CD also fetaures 5 bonus tracks too – unreleased demo versions of tracks on the album! CD

✨✧ VariousGilles Peterson – Magic Peterson Sunshine ... LP
MPS (Germany), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $34.99
The magic sunshine here is all from the legendary catalog of MPS Records – unusually groovy jazz tracks from the 60s and 70s, all hand-picked by the equally legendary DJ Gilles Peterson! Peterson first turned many ears onto MPS back a few decades ago – with his excellent Talkin Jazz series – and this set follows strongly in that legacy, but also really shows both the deeper knowledge of the label's catalog we've acquired over the years, and the further development of Gilles' incredible ear for finding an unusual tune! The music here isn't just funky jazz, it's a huge range of sounds at once – some modal and spiritual elements, some global jazz experiments, a few vocal tracks, and even some very cool space-age styles – served up in a package that seems to make each new track burst forward with fresh feeling in the company of the others – that rare quality that can make a compilation like this so great. Titles include "Lillemor" by Francy Boland, "Out Of The Sorcellery" by Eddie Louiss, "Big P" by Modern Jazz Group Freiburg, "Stone Ground Seven" by Singers Unlimited, "Harp Revolution" by Johnny Teupen, "Service" by Orchester Roland Kovac, "Love Train" by Third Wave, "Dew" by Don Ellis, "Our Chant" by Gunter Hampel, "Denn Liebe Ist Stark Wie Der Tod" by Wolfgang Lauth, "Why & How" by Mark Murphy, and "Cancion Del Fuego Fatuo" by Pedro Iturralde with Paco DeLucia.

✨✧ OV WrightOV Box – The Complete Recorded Works By The Boss Of Southern Soul For Backbeat & ABC Labels (5CD set) ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 5 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of work from one of the greatest southern soul singers ever – and one of the few artists who's never gotten his proper due on the reissue market! OV Wright was a seminal figure in the Memphis scene before the Hi Records soul explosion of the 70s – an artist who worked with Willie Mitchell, but in a way that was slightly different than the more polished style going down at Hi – a bit rougher around the edges, and more of a link between the bluesier modes of Memphis in previous years, and the well-crafted soul of the 60s and 70s. Wright's albums on the Backbeat label are always treasured among soul collectors – but most are nearly impossible to find on both LP or CD. This set wonderfully corrects that mistake, though – by offering up the albums Memphis Unlimited, A Nickel & A Nail, Nucleus Of Soul, and 8 Men & 4 Women – plus the later Treasured Moments collection of his earlier Goldwax work – all presented in LP-styled sleeves, and wrapped up in a beautiful slipcover box with notes! The package is amazing – almost as mindblowing as finding one of Wright's rare records in mint shape (which is pretty near impossible!) – and our hat's off to P-Vine for doing such a wonderful job with the whole thing. There's a total of 71 tracks on the 5CD set. CD

✨✧ Anita KerrSounds (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Quite possibly the grooviest album ever from Anita Kerr – a set that brings the sweet sound of her vocal quartet into play with some of the best elements of the Sunshine Pop generation! The orchestrations, arrangements, and tunes here are all a lot hipper than before – not just simple pop tunes, given the Kerr touch – but a completely remade approach to the music, with deep consideration for all elements, and where they might be used the best! There's a really heavenly quality to the entire set – a sound that's somewhere between early Association and the best Singers Unlimited work at MPS – and along with a few well-chosen tunes by other writers, Anita even includes a few self-penned gems of her own. Titles include "I'm Falling In Love Again", "I Would Love You", "The Two Of Us", "They Always Ask Me", "Wine In The Wind", "Happiness Is", and "Today Is". CD features three bonus tracks – "One Day", "All This", and "One Up On Me". CD
