Stephanie MillsI've Got The Cure ... LP
Casablanca, 1984. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Bubbling 80s soul from Stephanie Mills – a set that has the singer's vocals really working strongly with some catchy rhythms that nicely balance between the clubs and the charts! Stephanie's almost in Deniece Williams territory here – working with a groove that's got plenty of potential to cross over to bigger markets – yet still marked by the really rich, full vocal approach that made her a winner right from the start! The backings definitely have that hook-heavy quality you'd hear in mainstream 80s soul – but Mills' approach more than makes the songs her own – even when things are grooving. Titles include "In My Life", "The Medicine Song", "Edge Of The Razor", "Undercover", and "Rough Trade". LP, Vinyl record album
(Still in the shrink. Cover has a cutout notch.)

Stephanie MillsMerciless ... LP
Casablanca, 1983. Sealed ... $2.99
An early 80s cooker from Stephanie Mills – not exactly "without mercy", as you might guess from the title – but instead a great slow burner that really does a great job of opening up her voice! Mills moves here in a perfect space between the late disco years and commercial 80s pop – a groove that's warm and mature, and just right for pushing Mills past some of the styles of earlier years – but also without falling into any sort of "adult contemporary" cliches! Stephanie's sound is wonderful – that crisp, distinct style that is already great on a bold number, but somehow takes on even more personality on understated tracks like these – probably thanks in part to the careful instrumental balance served up by David Wolfert's arrangements. Titles include "My Body", "Pilot Error", "Do You Love Him", "How Come U Don't Call Me Anymore", "Never Get Enough Of You", and "Eternal Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(With hype sticker. Cover has a cutout notch.)

Stephanie MillsStephanie ... LP
20th Century, 1981. Very Good Gatefold ... $3.99
Another winner from Stephanie Mills and the hitmaking team of Reggie Lucas and Mtume – two musical partners who really helped Mills find her groove! The sound here is classic mainstream soul from the start of the 80s – upbeat and catchy, but without any of the too-clunky commercial modes that would bog things down a few years later – still very much in the warmer, jazz-inspired sound you'd guess from the roots of Mtume and Lucas! The best numbers are the mid to up tempo grooves, all with a nice polish and sophisticated songwriting – and titles include "Winner", "Two Hearts", "Don't Stop Doin What Cha Do", "Top Of My List", "I Believe In Love Songs", "Night Games", "My Love's Been Good To You", and "Magic". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the original inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout notch.)

✨✧ Masters At WorkOur Time Is Coming ... CD
Tommy Boy, 2002. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
If you ask us, their time's been coming for a long long time – as the team of Kenny Dope and Louie Vega have been one of the most important production talents of the past 10 years! Together, as Masters At Work, Kenny and Louie have a vision that spans hip hop, soul, house, club, Latin, disco, and funk – summed up perfectly in this great collection of tunes produced, directed, and composed by the pair. As with their previous NuYuorican Soul set, this one features a host of famous guest stars – including India, Patti Austin, Stephanie Mills, James Ingram, Roy Ayers, and others – and like any of their work, the set's a mind-blowing trip through a variety of moods, held together through a masterful appreciation and interpretation of the past 30 years of dance and soul music! Titles include "Mr V", "Like A Butterfly", "Our Time Is Coming", "Life Is But A Dream", "Every Now & Then", "Pienso En Ti", "Latin Lover", "MAW Expensive (Tribute To Fela)", "Michelle's Message", and "Backfired".

✨✧ VariousAshford & Simpson Songbook ... CD
Expansion (UK), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Ashford & Simpson recorded plenty of great work on their own, but they were also a tremendous pair of songwriters – and had a way of penning can't-miss work that sounded great in just about anyone's hands! This collection is great testament to that fact – as it starts with gems the duo first wrote back in their early Motown days, then quickly moves up to their late 70s fame, and the way they had a major impact on the dancefloor. The tracks here are often quite familiar, but the actual recordings are sometimes obscure – lesser-known takes on some of Ashford & Simpson's best numbers, laid out back to back as proof of their genius talent for a groovy soul tune. Titles include "Top Of The Stairs" by Collins & Collins, "Keep It Coming" by Tata Vega, "Rough Times" by Angela Bofill, "California Soul" by Marlena Shaw, "Bourgie Bourgie" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Have You Ever Tried It" by The Main Ingredient, "I Wouldn't Change The Man He Is" by Blinky, "It's In There" by Jennifer Holiday, "Clouds" by Chaka Khan, "Over & Over" by Sylvester, "Hit & Run Lover" by The Dynamic Superiors, "The Boss (ext club)" by Diana Ross, "Is It Still Good To Ya" by Teddy Pendergrass, "Keep It Coming" by Tata Vega, and "Keep Away Girls" by Stephanie Mills.

✨✧ VariousSoulful Christmas ... CD
Harmless (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great little Holiday soul compilation – one that's heavy on gems from vintage years, but which also features a few surprising cuts of more recent vintage as well! The package was put together by the folks at Harmless, and it's got the same care as their excellent soul reissues – a very thoughtful lineup of 20 tracks that includes "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" by Ann Sexton, "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" by The Impressions, "Merry Christmas Baby" by Otis Redding, "My Gift To You" by Alexander O'Neal, "Christmas Time Is Here Again" by The Flirtations, "You & Me This Christmas" by Natasha Watts, "I Love Christmas" by Eugene Wilde, "Let It Snow" by Boyz II Men with Brian McKnight, "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" by The Whispers, "This Christmas" by Stephanie Mills, "I Want To Come Home For Christmas" by Marvin Gaye, and "Cold Cold Winter In The Ghetto" by Lonnie Hill.
