✨✧ Gene Page/Solomon BurkeCool Breeze – Original Soundtrack ... LP
MGM, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Gene Page and Solomon Burke did the music for this obscure blacksploitation film starring Raymond St. Jacques – and although it's not the greatest funky soundtrack you can buy, it's got more than its share of nice moments! There's a bunch of nice instrumentals by Page that are kind of in a mode that's expanded from his work on Blacula, plus a few vocal cuts by Solomon in his "transitional" phase that feature him trying for a hipper sound than on his earlier Atlantic albums. Cuts include "Cool Breeze", "Icbyatht W.T.?", "The Bus", "Fight Back", and "Then I Want To Come Home" – and there's more than a few funky moments to make this one worth while! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear & a mark from sticker removal.)

✨✧ Solomon BurkeHomeland ... CD
Bizarre, 1991. Used ... Out Of Stock
A near-lost comeback effort from Solomon Burke – recorded at the start of the 90s for the mostly-rock Bizarre label, but a surprisingly well-done set overall! The mode here is often in that southern soul revival style used by Malaco heavily in the 80s and 90s – an approach that sounded a bit unusual for Solomon at the time, but which has a nicely aged appeal here. Instrumentation is sometimes modern – at least for the time – but given that Burke was hardly recording secular soul albums in the 80s, the record's kind of like the one he never got to make from that decade, with instrumentation that's sometimes a bit electric, but vocals that haven't faltered a bit! Titles include "Baby Please Don't Cry", "Try A Little Tenderness", "Make It Up To You", "Stayin Away", "Home Land", "I'll Be There", and "Love Ain't No Easy Place To Be". CD

OC SmithFor Once In My Life ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Very Good ... $1.99
Pretty darn great work from OC Smith – on of his biggest albums for Columbia! OC's working in a country soul mode that draws on a tradition shared by Solomon Burke, Joe Tex, Ray Charles, and others – turning the genre towards a more pop-driven version of country, the kind that was creeping into the crossover charts at the end of the 60s. The style's one that might have you suspicious, but it comes off surprisingly well – thanks to arrangements by the always-great HB Barnum, the man who brought a syncopated groove to some of Lou Rawls' best work in the late 60s – his Capitol sides with David Axelrod! The feel here is a bit rootsier, but still has that nice Barnum bounce underneath – and titles include "Wichita Lineman", "I Ain't The Worryin' Kind", "The Best Man", "Stormy", "Cycles", "Keep On Keepin On", "Isn't It Lonely Together", and "Promises".

Various500 Atlantic R&B & Soul Singles Vol 1 – 1964/1965 ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $48.99
Think you know the sound of Atlantic Records in the 60s? Think again – because this stunning series opens the vault to a huge amount of rare treasures from the legendary label! The package is amazing – and offers up rare tracks that were mostly only issued by Atlantic on singles – including some on the other imprints associated with the company – some by names we never even knew recorded for the label, others by bigger names, but represented here by obscure material that goes way past their hits – and which is ultra cool because of that. There's also a fair bit more deep soul than you might expect from the usual Atlantic mix – tremendous vocals, and often in less hit-heavy modes – which makes the whole thing a great revelation – and just one more reason to bow down and give even more expect to one of the key companies who helped soul music find a home in the 60s. Plus – as if that's not enough – the whole thing comes in a very cool 7" gatefold package – which emphasizes the from-singles nature of the collection. First volume features 50 great tracks that include "Baby Girl (part 1)" by Titus Turner, "Please Don't Leave Me" by The Drapels, "That's The Way That It Goes" by Bobby Marchan, "Mary Lou You Can Do The Bumble Bee" by Deanie Parker, "Gotta Find A Way" by Theresa Lindsay, "One More Chance" by Doris Troy, "Daddy Woo Woo" by The Vibrations, "Slumber Party" by The Van Dells, "Someday We're Gonna Love Again" by Barbara Lewis, "Reconsider Baby" by Al King, "Shake Up" by The Cobras, "Uh Oh I'm In Love Again" by Eddie Jefferson, "That's When It Hurts" by Ben E King, "Don't Make Something Out Of Nothing" by William Bell, "You Never Know How Much I Love You" by Oscar Mack, "Closer To My Baby" by Dorothy Williams, "The Last Girl" by The Isley Brothers, "Don't Leave Me" by The Crume Brothers, "Bashful Guitar" by Johnny Jenkins, "Take The Boy Out Of The Country" by Linda Jones, "I'm Gonna Run Away From You" by Tami Lynn, "Wild One" by The Coasters, "Yes I Do" by Solomon Burke, "Something In My Eye" by Music City Soul Brothers, "Young Man" by The Drapels, "Watchdog" by Dorothy Williams, "Romance In The Dark" by Jimmy Ricks, "Please Be Honest With Me" by Barbara & The Browns, "I'm Taking Back My Love" by Linda Jones, "Young & Foolish" by Wendy Rene, "My Girl Sloopy" by The Vibrations, "I Want To Get Married" by Rufus Thomas, "I Left There Running Because Walking Was Much Too Slow" by Chuck Bradford, and "Big Party" by Barbara & The Browns.

The beat goes on, and the groove does too – in this wonderful set of tracks that show the continued commitment of Atlantic Records to the realm of hard soul groovers! The package brings together a great blend of familiar numbers and lesser-known gems from three decades of the label's history – beginning with upbeat R&B gems from the 50s, moving through some great shifts in style that include some jukebox mambo sounds, jerking 60s soul, and even a bit of early funk – all in a sweet blend of tracks that never stops moving throughout!

Kent Records takes on the Atlantic Records catalog of the 60s – and come up with a wonderful array of cuts that go way past the obvious hits from the famous label! The groove here is a mix of hard soul and funky numbers from both big names and lesser-knowns who recorded for the Atlantic family of labels – and the package mixes hard-grooving classics with some even cooler cuts that might be a new discovery to your ears here – all laid out in that killer Kent soul style that makes every track sound even better in the company of the others.

✨✧ VariousBang – The Bert Berns Story ... LP
Sony, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic tribute to the studio genius of the great Bert Berns – maybe one of the most rough-edged producers on the New York scene at the time – as you can probably guess from his image on the cover! The set's pretty strong on Berns' soul output, but also includes some of his key rock productions too – and as always with his music, there's a nice link between both styles – with rough edges on the soul tracks, and soulful currents on the rock numbers! Titles include "Tell Him" by The Exciters, "Piece Of My Heart" by Erma Franklin, "A Little Bit Of Soap" by The Jarmels, "I Want Candy" by The Strangeloves, "Are You Lonely For Me Baby" by Freddie Scott, "Hang On Sloop" by The McCoys, "Chick A Boom" by Van Morrison, "Mr Success" by Bobby Harris, "Am I Grooving You" by Freddie Scott, "Heart Be Still" by Lorraine Ellison, "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love" by Solomon Burke, "You May Be Holding My Baby" by The Pussycats, "Show Me Your Monkey" by Kenny Hamber, and "Baby Please Don't Go" by Them.

✨✧ Esther PhillipsRelease Me – Reflections Of Country & Western Greats ... LP
Lenox, 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
A landmark album – not only for Esther Phillips, who's emerging here as a gifted young lady, very different from her R&B years, but also for the genre of country soul, which was emerging to be one of the most important strands in the new music during the 60s! Esther's not fooling around here – as she's working with Nashville arranger Cliff Parman, and getting backup from the Anita Kerr singers for that true Music City sound. Sounds hokey, sounds like it shouldn't work – but the setting is perfect for Esther's raspy rich tone, and in a way, it forces her to break out even more vocally than she does on other 60s recordings. Titles include "Release Me", "I'd Fight The World", "Am I That Easy To Forget", "I Really Don't Want To Know", "Just Out Of Reach", and "Be Honest With Me". A wonderful album – one that sits perfectly next to work by Solomon Burke, Ray Charles, and Brook Benton. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousIt Had To Be You – Southern Soul Anthology ... CD
Essential, 1970s/1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The singer on the front looks a lot different than the kind of artist usually portrayed on the cover of a southern soul collection – which is a good indication of the sound of the music within! The cuts here are less southern soul tracks with the heavy grit of the 60s, and instead showcase that shift in styles as the 70s moved into the 80s – currents of modern soul production and instrumentation, mixed with deep soul approach to the vocals – in a way that really changes any sort of easy prediction you'd have about the music, as styles criss cross in a beautiful way! The package has no dates at all, but most cuts sound like they're of 70s and 80s vintage – and a few familiar numbers feel like later remakes by the original artist. Titles include "Love Jones" by Norma Jenkins, "More" by Solomon Burke, "Casanova" by Ruby Andrews, "Wish That Someone Would Care" by Irma Thomas, "I'm Gonna Be Rich & Famous" by Jesse James, "Human" by Tommy Hunt, "Stay" by Willie Clayton, "Hold Back" by ZZ Hill, "If You Get Him" by Bette Williams, "Yours Love" by Freddie North, and "I Want To Sleep With You" by Ruth Brown.
