Stephanie MillsMerciless ... LP
Casablanca, 1983. Sealed ... $4.99
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.)

✨✧ Stephanie MillsI've Got The Cure ... LP
Casablanca, 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Stephanie MillsFeel The Fire – The 20th Century Collection (Whatcha Gonna Do With My Lovin'?/Sweet Sensation/Stephanie plus bonus tracks) ... CD
20th Century/Hip-O Select, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A nice anthology of all the sweetness Stephanie Mills recorded for 20th Century at end of the 70s and beginning of the 80s – the Whatcha Gonna Do With My Lovin'?, Sweet Sensation and Stephanie albums in full – plus bonus non-LP and 12" singles in a great 2CD set on Hip-O Select! Watcha Gonna Do. . .is prime, peak soul from Stephanie – one of the lady's all-time hits, and for good reason too! The album really gives Stephanie's great voice a lot of focus – an upbeat, uptempo groove that sets her firmly on the dancefloor, but always with a touch of class – and a lot more depth than some of the easy come/easy go disco divas of her day! Titles include "What Cha Gonna Do With My Lovin'", "Deeper Inside Your Love", "Feel The Fire", "Put Your Body In It", "Starlight", and "Don't Stop Dancin". Disc 1 also includes the Sweet Sensation material – still in perfectly fine formation and working again with the team of James Mtume and Reggie Lucas. The sound here is catchy and contemporary, but hardly ever too commercial – just relaxed and grooving, in a mode that lets Stephanie's vocals flow nicely over the top. Titles include the massive hit "Never Knew Love Like This Before" – plus "Sweet Sensation", "Try My Love", "I Just Wanna Say", 'Wish That You Were Mine", "D-a-n-c-i-n'", "Still Mine", and "Mixture Of Love". Disc 1 also includes the non-LP bonus single "Better Than Ever". Disc 2 opens with Stephanie – another winner with a nice polish and sophisticated songwriting from the same creative team! Titles include "Winner", "Two Hearts" with Teddy Pendergrass, "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". Also includes 5 bonus 12-inch single versions of "Whatcha Gonna Do With My Lovin'?", "Put Your Body In It", "You Can Get Over", "Sweet Sensation" and "Two Hearts". CD

✨✧ Harold Wheeler/Charlie SmallsWiz – Original Cast Album ... LP
Atlantic, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The original first recording of The Wiz – the super-soul musical that remade Wizard Of Oz for the 70s! The hits here are familiar, but the music is actually pretty great – handled by hip Harold Wheeler on most numbers, and really stepping forth with a nice mix of soundtrack grooves and bigger orchestrations! Stephanie Mills sings the parts of Dorothy here, but the best vocal numbers are usually the more ensemble ones – which come across with a bit of the badass feel of Melvin Van Peebles' musicals. Titles include the sweet instrumental "Tornado", plus "So You Wanted To See The Wizard", "What Would I Do If I Could Feel", "Ease On Down The Road", "Slide Some Oil To Me", "Home", and "Y'all Got It". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

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.
