Solomon BurkeElectronic Magnetism ... LP
MGM, 1972. Very Good ... $19.99
An album of stunning beauty, and one of Solomon's best-ever! He's recording here in a vein that's more in keeping with the smoother Southern soul sound that began to dominate later in the generation – with weeping guitars, soaring strings, and smooth keyboards – and the sound is a perfect accompaniment to Solomon's raspy voice, and actually brings out a lot more soul than his rootsier recordings. The title cut is a stunning love song that taps into the natural force of magnetism, and which shows that Solomon hasn't lost an ounce of his talent. Other cuts include "Stand", "No Man Walks Alone", "Bridge Of Life", and his weird medley of Elton John tracks, called "Three Psalms of Elton". LP, Vinyl record album

Solomon BurkeKing Solomon ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Near Mint- ... $49.99
Solomon Burke's years at Atlantic just kept getting better and better! He started out very strong at the beginning of the 60s – and by the time of a record like this, he was in strong command of his vocal talents and emotion, such that he could do a fantastic job with just about any song. Proof is in the set here – as Solomon works with a host of New York and southern soul arrangements, on tracks that include versions of "Detroit City", "Presents For Christmas", "Party People", "Woman, How Do You Make Me Love You Like I Do", "It's Just A Matter Of Time", "Time Is A Thief", and "It's Been A Change". Great stuff all around! LP, Vinyl record album

Solomon BurkeThis Is It – The Apollo Soul Origins ... CD
Apollo/Shout (UK), 1956/1957. New Copy ... $3.99
Deep early soul from the great Solomon Burke – singles that he cut in NYC for the Apollo label in 1956 & 1957! Some of Burke's best work here is done in a soul stirringly intimate ballad setting – brimming with real soul – and the intensity comes through in Burke's vocals and in the nicely restrained arrangements. Other tunes are in more of a jump blue mode, and there are a few gospel soul tunes, too – all of it quite wonderful! Titles include "I'm All Alone", "I'm In Love", "Why Do Me That Way", "No Man Walks Alone", "You Can Run But You Can't Hide", "A Picture Of You", I Need You Tonight", "This Is It", "For You And You Alone", "You Are My One Love", "They Always Say", "Don't Try", "My Heart Is A Chapel" and more.

✨✧ Solomon BurkeHome In Your Heart – Best Of Solomon Burke ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, Early 60s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Genius – pure genius! Solomon Burke is one of those soul singers you always hear folks about, but who you never seem to get to hear as much as folks like Otis Redding, Ray Charles, Wilson Pickett, or any of his other label-mates on Atlantic. This excellent 2CD set will correct that problem – as it brings together 41 tracks from Solomon's glory days at Atlantic, and the selection of material is fantastic all the way through. Solomon's voice is indescribably majestic – soaring over the top of the tightly-woven arrangements that were some of Atlantic's first real forays into soul music. The set does a good job of showing the full range of his talents during the 60s – and it moves way past the few hits he had, which always seem to get repeated endlessly when anyone brings up his name. Tracks include "Save It", "Get Out Of My Life Woman", "Detroit City", "Take Me (Just As I Am)", "When She Touches Me (Nothing Else Matters)", "Looking For My Baby", "I'm Hanging Up My Heart For You", "Cry To Me", "If You Need Me", "The Price", "You're Good For Me", "Words", "It's Been A Change", "Time Is A Thief", "Stupidity", and "Woman, How Do You Make Me Love You Like I Do".

✨✧ Solomon BurkeMusic To Make Love By ... LP
Chess, 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
An incredible record – a real standout in Solomon's career! This set features him working with arrangements that are smooth, mellow, and sexy – very much in the Barry White and Isaac Hayes mode, a style that's a perfect fit for Solomon's voice, which was warm and deep back when White and Hayes were just kids! Gene Page did some of the arrangements with Solomon, and the record's a wonderfully unified session with a mellow 70s soul feel that's just great. Titles include "Everlasting Love", "Music To Make Love By", "Midnight & You", "You & Your Baby Blues", and "Let Me Wrap My Arms Around You". LP, Vinyl record album

Percy MayfieldWeakness Is A Thing Called Man ... LP
RCA, 1970. Very Good+ ... $12.99
Dynamite stuff – and one of a few excellent comeback albums recorded by Percy Mayfield in his later years! The record really moves past Percy's blues roots – into territory that has some stronger elements of modern sounds, yet which also still preserves all the soulfulness of his vocals. Arrangements are by Joe James, and in a way, the album's got the mixed blues and soul approach of work from the time by Bobby Bland or Solomon Burke. Titles include "The Flirt", "Brotherhood Week", "Minden Is A Dry Town", "Weakness Is A Thing Called Man", "California Blues", "Lonely For My Baby", and "I've Got A Secret" – plus the funky groover "Daddy Wants You To Come On Home".

Jackie WilsonBaby Workout ... LP
Brunswick, Early 60s. Very Good ... $14.99
A hard soul groove from the great Jackie Wilson – and a record that really has the singer coming into his own! The music is tight, upbeat, and mighty rocking right from the start – and Wilson takes off with these tremendous vocals that are undeniably some of the greatest in early soul music – very much on a par with the best from Clyde McPhatter or Solomon Burke! And unlike some of Wilson's other albums of the time, there's almost no pop or ballad material at all – just great groovers like "Baby Workout", "You Only Live Once", "Cute Little Girls", "Shake! Shake! Shake!", "Love Train", "Say You Will", and "The Kickapoo". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has some wear and fully split top & bottom seams.)

VariousCan You Dig It? – The Music & Politics Of Black Action Films 1968 to 1975 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99
Possibly the best-ever collection of blacksploitation grooves we've ever seen – a really comprehensive package that not only manages to cover the classics, but which also digs deep enough to come up with lots of fresh bits too! The set really sets a new level for the Soul Jazz label – and is carried off with enough authority towards Black Action films as the label's legendary efforts towards a host of less mainstream genres – truly an achievement for the label's crew, not to mention a heavier bonus for our funky listening pleasure! There's way more here than just a slapped-together batch of tunes from the early 70s – as the set's very carefully put together to showcase a wide range of sounds, along with notes that really get at the social and political power of both the music and the films. 2CD package features a massive color booklet inside the slipcase – and features 34 tracks that include "Shaft In Africa" by Johnny Pate, "Down & Out In New York City" by James Brown, "Wilford's Gone" by The Blackbyrds, "Run Fay Run" by Isaac Hayes, "Theme From Black Belt Jones" by Dennis Coffey, "Willie Chase" by JJ Johnson, "T Plays It Cool" by Marvin Gaye, "Charley" by Don Costa, "Brother's Gonna Work It Out" by Willie Hutch, "Blacula" by Gene Page, "Theme From Cleopatra Jones" by Joe Simon, "Pursuit Of The Pimpmobile" by Isaac Hayes, "Sweetback's Theme" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Aragon" by Roy Ayers, "Strung Out" by Gordon Staples, "Easin In" by Edwin Starr, "The Bus" by Solomon Burke & Gene Page, "Make A Resolution" by The Impressions, "Ed & Digger" by Cotton Comes To Harlem, "Las Vegas Strut" by Jack Ashford, "Lay It On Your Head" by Don Julian, and "Zombie March" by Nat Dove & The Devils.

✨✧ Joe SimonSimon Pure Soul ... LP
Sound Stage 7, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent early work by Joe Simon – very much in the rootsy southern mode that graced his best early singles, and which seemed to disappear quickly as his fame rose in the 70s. Joe's voice is great – with touches of Solomon Burke, Joe Tex, Brook Benton, and Ben E King, all wrapped up into one powerful style that can handle a wide range of emotions and expression. The whole album's great, and handled with a smooth southern backing that was one of the best contributions made to the music by Sound Stage 7 maestro John Richbourg. Titles include "Long Hot Summer", "Teenager's Prayer", "Too Many Teardrops", "My Special Prayer", "The Girl's Alright With Me", and "Too Many Rivers". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousFrom Sacred To Secular – A Soul Awakening (8CD set) ... CD
History Of Soul, Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 8 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A heavy set of early soul music – mixed with a fair bit of gospel as well – all to show the evolution of the sounds of the style from its roots in the church! The package willfully – and wonderfully – mixes tracks from soul, R&B, and gospel sources all together in a ridiculously huge batch of tunes – 231 songs in all – running from late 40s jump blues and gospel, through the rise of R&B in the 50s, currents of electric blues, hard-edged vocal material, and lots of key cuts from the earliest years of soul music – all packaged in a book-style cover with a set of notes and lots of vintage images within! At first glance there doesn't seem to be a strong sense of organization to the package – but there's a musical vibe that really shows up once you start listening – taking a journey from spiritual to secular, with plenty of stops along the way. The package features dozens and dozens of different artists – only a handful of whom include The Aladdins, Davis Sisters, Caravans, Marie Knigh, Linda Hopkins, Dorothy Love Coates, The Sheiks, The Drapers, Kelly Brothers, JJ Barnes & The Del Fis, Mable John, Highway QCs, Soul Seekers, Soul Stirrers, Sugar Pie DeSanto, Singin Sammy Ward, Johnny Adams, Solomon Burke, Brother Joe May, Prince La La, Womack Brothers, Arthur Alexander, Willie Tee, Valentinos, and many more – including a fair bit of bigger names from 60s soul!

✨✧ VariousR&B Singles Collection Vol 2 – Outta Sight Red Hot Rhythm & Blues ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Blazing R&B, slightly more simmering soul, and some rollicking wildcard tunes that split the difference – all on this fantastic second volume in the R&B Singles series from Outta Sight! It's a great collection, culled mostly from the fertile early 60s period when the sound was still strongly rooted in mid-to-late 50s rhythm & blues, yet beginning to lay the groundwork for gritty southern soul and tighter Northern Soul sounds to come. A nice mix of legendary names and lesser known stars alike, with titles that include "Cry To Me" by Solomon Burke, "Come On Baby" by Marie Knight, "Good Enough" by Bobby Guy, "Baby You Can Get Your Gun" by Earl King, "I've Got My Eyes On You" by Marry Clayton, "I Think I Love You" by Helen Troy, "Shake It Up & Go" by John Lee Hooker, "Work Song" by Oscar Brown Jr, "Comin Home Baby" by Mel Torme, "How I Miss You So" by Frances Burnette, "Love Must Be Taboo" by Tony Clarke, and "I Don't Know About You" by Lloyd Nolan.
