Smokey RobinsonQuiet Storm ... CD
Tamla, 1975. Used ... $5.99
Incredible work – a record that should be in every household! Smokey breaks free of the group sound of the Miracles albums – hitting a whole new mode, and inventing the "Quiet Storm" radio format along the way! The title cut – "Quiet Storm" – is a majestic long-building track that's as important to mellow soul as Larry Mizell's work was to jazz funk at the same time, and it's got a similar layering effect that has sounds building and spinning, with a bit of sound effects, great keyboards, and cool moogy touches that recall some of Bobbi Humphrey's best work for Blue Note, but filtered through a mellow ballad style. The whole album's great, and other tracks include "Baby That's Backatcha", "The Agony & The Ecstasy", "Coincidentally", and "Wedding Song". Proof that Motown was still great in the 70s! CD

Alicia Hall MoranHeavy Blue ... CD
Yes, 2015. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
Alicia Hall Moran's a singer that's unlike anyone else we can think of – a vocalist with the skills to handle a complex classical repertoire, but very much dedicated to opening up a new sort of spirit in music – similar to the instrumental territory explored by pianist Jason Moran, who produced the set and plays on the record a bit too! Make no mistake, this isn't a Jason Moran project with vocals – because from the very first note, Alicia's unique sound and complex approach to the material ring out – in shifting settings that feature a bit of her own piano, some bass and cello, and guitar from either Brandon Ross, Thomas Flippin, or Mary Halvorson, depending on the track. Titles include "Shh", "Come Back Into My Life", "Believe Me", "Open Door", "Flow My Tears For Smokey Robinson", "Heavy Blue Muse", and a compelling reworking of the Ellington tune "I Like The Sunrise".

TemptationsTemptin Temptations ... CD
Motown, 1965. Used ... $3.99
Classic early Temptations – a wonderful little record produced by Smokey Robinson with a sweet group finish! The harmonies are impeccable, and the sound is perfect Motown – tight and classy, but with enough rough edges to keep things soulful at the best parts – and there's a romping sort of groove to many tracks, almost making the album sort of a mini-Motown dance party of sorts! Titles include "Just Another Lonely Night", "The Girl's Alright With Me", "Don't Look Back", "Since I Lost My Baby", "Everybody Needs Love", "My Baby", "You've Got To Earn It", and "Born To Love You".

VariousHorse Meat Disco ... CD
Strut (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $14.99
Marvelously mixed-up work from the Horse Meat Disco team – a great way for all of us to sample the revolutionary grooves they've been laying down at their famous club night in London! The work here is hardly the conventional disco you'd find on other compilations (although maybe you already guessed that from the "horse meat" in the title) – and instead, the grooves are an odd range of funky club styles from the late 70s and early 80s – including many tracks that have a jagged, percussive edge that's a far cry from smoother disco. Don't get us wrong, though – as there's definitely some great disco touches here too – yet these are still far from the mainstream, and just slide on in to warm things up before the beats take over on the next tune. 2CD set features one disc mixed by the team, one unmixed – with titles that include "In The Evening" by Sheryl Lee Ralph, "Danger" by Gregg Diamond, "Dancing Shoes" by Plaza, "Freakman" by Empire Projecting Penny, "And I Don't Love You (Larry Levan inst)" by Smokey Robinson, "Detour (party mix)" by Karen Young, "Disco Jam" by Eddie Drennon, "Love Bite" by Richard Hewson Orchestra, "I Don't Depend On You" by Two Tons, and "It's Alright" by Gino Soccio.

✨✧ Jackie De ShannonMe About You/Laurel Canyon/Put A Little Love In The Heart/To Be Free ... CD
Imperial/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Four classic albums from Jackie DeShannon – all in a single set! First up is Me About You – sophisticated Jackie at her best – working with great arrangements from Jack Nitzsche and Nick DeCaro – both cats from the California scene we can really trust for "cut-above" pop work like this – music that goes way past the simple sounds of DeShannon's start – into cool adult territory that really makes the album great. Jackie's vocals are surprisingly soulful in the setting – even more so than before – and the tunes include lots of gems, including versions of Van Dyke Parks' "High Coin", John Sebastian's "Didn't Want To Have To Do It", and Tim Hardin's "Baby Close Its Eyes". Also includes "I Keep Wanting You", "Me About You", and "Nicole". Next is Laurel Canyon – heady work from Jackie DeShannon's later years in 60s pop – an album with themes and styles that go way beyond her earlier recordings – as you might guess from the hip Laurel Canyon reference in the title! Jackie's working here in a mode that's much more strongly in a singer-songwriter style than before – with arrangements and backings that are a lot more organic, and less pop-tuned than ever – almost in a Laura Nyro approach on some numbers. As usual, a good portion of the tracks were written by Jackie herself – including "Holly Would", "Come & Stay With Me", "LA", "Too Close", and "Laurel Canyon" – and the album also features a few well chosen tracks by other writers too, like "Bitter Honey" by Paul Williams & Roger Nichols, "I Got My Reason" by Barry White, and "You've Really Got A Hold On Me" by Smokey Robinson. Put A Little Love In Your Heart is quite possibly the last great hit from singer Jackie DeShannon – an album built around the righteous spirit of the title track – filled with really wonderful original tunes penned by Jackie and soul singer Jimmy Holiday! The album may well be the best to explore the space between pop and soul that often characterized Jackie's work – and the overall sound is somewhat similar to some of Dusty Springfield's best pop/soul work from the same stretch. 10 of the album's 12 tracks are originals by Holiday and DeShannon – all set to soaring orchestrations by James Langeford, which often have a pronounced influence from the sound of Atlantic Records in the late 60s! Titles include "Put A Little Love In Your Heart", "You Are The Real Thing", "River Of Love", "Movin", "You Can Come To Me", "You Have A Way With Me", and "I Let Go Completely". To Be Free is an interesting little record – with kind of a crossover California soul feel overall – recorded with Rene Hall arrangements that echo a few rootsy modes at times, mixed in with fuller orchestrations that step a bit back towards Jackie's earlier years on Imperial – a surprisingly nice blend, with a fresh sound for the 70s. The album features a number of great tracks co-written with Jimmy Holiday – a fellow Imperial talent – and titles include "Mediterranean Sky", "Sooner Or Later", "What Was Your Day Like", "Livin On The Easy Side", "Brighton Hill", and "When Morning Comes Again".
