Tyrone DavisCan I Change My Mind ... LP
Dakar, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The debut album from Tyrone Davis – a supreme achievement for the Chicago soul scene of the late 60s, and a record with a sound that would set the standard for years to come! Tyrone had been bumping around as a blusier singer before this set – but here, working with arrangements by Don Myrick and Willie Henderson, he gets a sound that's sweet and soaring – taking a rough-spirited soul, and recasting it in a sweeter sound for the 70s. Tyrone's not lapsing into bluesy cliches here, and instead keeps things wonderfully soulful by hitting a loping groove that picks up his beat and gives the songs a nice lilt. You can hear this to best effect on the title track "Can I Change My Mind", but all tracks are great – including "She's Looking Good", "Call On Me", "Open The Door To Your Heart", and "Have You Ever Wondered Why?".

Tyrone DavisIn The Mood ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Very Good ... $9.99
Our favorite album ever from Tyrone Davis – even if it's completely different than most of his other work too! The set's got a wonderfully smooth feel right from the start – a mellow-grooving, slow-stepping approach that works perfectly for Tyrone's wonderful vocals – pushing them out of their bluesy roots, into a more sophisticated modern soul style that's mighty nice! The change is a key illustration of the way that Chicago soul was really growing in the 70s – moving into some of the richer territories that you'd find in work from Philly, too – and Davis' growth on a record like this is a real testament to his maturity as a singer. James Mack handled the arrangements – and titles include the sublime "In The Mood" – plus "You Know What To Do", "Keep On Dancin", "All The Love I Need", "I Don't Think You Heard Me", "Ain't Nothing I Can Do", and "I Can't Wait".

Tyrone DavisIt's All In The Game ... LP
Dakar, 1974. Very Good- ... $9.99
Tyrone Davis takes on the legacy of Tommy Edwards with the title of this classic set – a record that seemed to unlock a whole new chapter in Tyrone's career! Davis had always been great from the start – singing in a sharp west side blend of blues and soul, often with all the best soaring Chicago touches – but here, he kicks back a bit more, and shows that he can still groove wonderfully even when getting mellow – at a level that would only blossom more fully in years to come. Richard Parker produced, and wrote a number of original tunes too – and arrangements are by Willie Henderson, James Mack, and Tom Tom Washington – who all keep the Brunswick sound very firmly in place. Titles cuts include a remake of "It's All In The Game", plus "Happiness Is Being With You", "You Don't Have to Beg Me to Stay", "Where Lovers Meet", and "I Can't Make It Without You".

Tyrone DavisTurning Point! ... CD
Dakar/Brunswick, 1975. New Copy ... $4.99 10.98
One of Tyrone Davis' last albums for Dakar – and a great one too – issued in 1976 before the demise of that label, and Tyrone's big move to Columbia Records! Tyrone's still working strongly here in that great Chicago mix of smooth and rough – a sound first forged on his early Dakar hits, and carried through strongly here by arrangers Tom Tom and James Mack – who still keep a lot of the indie elements that made Davis' music for Dakar great right from the start. The centerpiece of the album is the title track "Turning Point", and it's situated in a set of other nice tunes, a number of which have that smoothed-out feel that Tyrone brought to his work in the late 70s. Includes a remake of "Turn Back The Hands Of Time" (done at a nice ballad tempo), plus "It's So Good (To Be Home With You)", "Saving My Love For You", and "I Can't Bump" (parts 1 & 2). CD

Tyrone DavisWithout You In My Life ... LP
Dakar, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99
Warm and tender work from the mighty Tyrone Davis – really singing here at the height of his early powers, in that wonderful blend of the rough and smooth that made him so unique! Davis has a gritty touch in his singing style, but the backings have that perfect Brunswick Chicago soul approach – a blend that's laid out perfectly in the album's arrangements from Monk Higgins, Willie Henderson, and Tom Tom Washington! Tyrone's a singer who's really a cut above – especially on his early work like this – able to charm and convince us with just about any sort of lyric. Titles include "Wrapped Up In Your Warm & Tender Love", "I'm Just Your Man", "There It Is", "I Had It All the Time", and "True Love Is Hard to Find". LP, Vinyl record album

Tyrone DavisI Just Can't Keep On Going ... CD
Columbia/Elemental (France), 1980. New Copy ... About October 15, 2016 (delayed)
Tyrone Davis the mellow master – still going strong into the 80s! The album's an overlooked gem from Tyrone's years at Columbia Records – a time when he was changing up his style a bit, and really finding a great new groove – a way of getting past some of the overdone modes of his Brunswick/Dakar recordings, and moving way way past his Chicago roots! The album's got these warm modern soul arrangements that still hold onto a bit of the blues from Tyrone's past – but often glide forward in this stepping sort of style that's offset nicely by that raspy, honest vocal approach that makes Davis such a unique singer. Titles include the excellent mellow stepper "Overdue", plus "I'm Glad You're Here With Me Tonight", "I Just Can't Keep On Going", "Wanna Make It Good", and "Comin Back Baby". CD

CL BlastI Wanna Get Down ... CD
Cotillion (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $8.99
A lost southern soul gem – cut at the end of the 70s, in that rare blend of southern and modern styles that few performers could really carry off well! Frederick Knight produced the album, and it really steps off of his own mellow work of earlier years – taking things even further, thanks to a really wonderful presentation on the vocals by CL, sounding here like the best 70s work by Johnnie Taylor or Tyrone Davis! The album's got a really special feel – and if it was cut for a smaller label, it probably would have gone onto become a rare groove treasure – instead of a slightly-overlooked record on Cotillion. The whole thing's great – and titles include "Our Love Will Last", "I've Got To Make It On My Own", "I Wanna Get Down", "If I Had Loved You More", "Love Don't Feel Like Love No More", and "Let's Do Something Different Tonight".

Chuck JacksonGoin' Back To Chuck Jackson ... LP
Motown, 1969. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A real change for Chuck Jackson! This album is the singer's first on Motown – and it's a striking departure from his earlier work on the Wand label, which was often done in a classier, more polished soul style that was more in keeping with the uptown mode of Wand's New York production. This one's in a much deeper soul style – with elements of southern production, and more of a hard soul sound that brings out a raspy edge in Chuck's vocals, and makes him sound a bit like Tyrone Davis. He covers tracks like "Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever", "Can I Change My Mind", and "The Chokin Kind" – very much in the manner of the original rougher soul versions. In fact, the "Goin' Back to Jackson" tag seems to be a reference to the south – or at least to the "Jackson", Mississippi that was often referenced in that 60s song. Other tracks include "You Keep Running Away", "Are You Lonely For Me", "Can You Feel It, Babe", and "The Day My World Stood Still". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny WilliamsWomen/Breaking Point ... 7-inch
Twinight, Late 60s. Good ... $7.99
Obscure and wonderful! The single's one of the many rare sides produced by Syl Johnson for Twinight, and it's very much in the vein of his own work! "Breaking Point" begins with fast fast choppy guitar – riffing away madly, while horns blare over the top, and Johnny sings in a sweet raspy voice. "Women" is very nice, too – and has a west side Tyrone Davis sort of feel to it. Johnny was a great singer – right up there with Tyrone and Syl, and it's a shame he never cut a full LP! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Little MiltonIf Walls Could Talk ... LP
Checker, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great example of why Little Milton was always one of the few Chicago blues artists who could also break strongly in the soul camp at the time – and a beautifully balanced set that perfectly shows both sides of the Chicago scene of the time! Production is by old Vee Jay maestro Calvin Carter, and arrangements by Gene Barge, who manages to slide effortlessly between blues and soul on the set – almost pushing Milton into Tyrone Davis territory, but keeping things a bit more rougher and down home on some of the other numbers. The sound is wonderful – very deep and rich, and with a sound that's head and shoulders above most other albums of this type in the late 60s. Titles include "Baby I Love You", "If Walls Could Talk", "Things That I Used to Do", "Let's Get Together", "I Play Dirty", "Blues Get Off My Shoulder", "I Don't Know", and "Poor Man".

✨✧ VariousLuxury Soul 2016 (3CD set) ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2016. New Copy 3 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer collection of contemporary soul – all pulled together with the kind of cool, classy sound we've come to expect from the Expansion label over the years! Expansion always has a great ear for digging out the best of the underground – and honestly, these guys were committed to Neo Soul before the movement had even formed – through their own recordings of American artists in the early 90s. That tradition continues strongly with a set like this – where the label offers up 35 gems on a well-priced 3CD package – brimming over with contemporary soul cuts that have way more going on than mainstream work on the charts. The set's a great way to discover a huge amount of Neo Soul cuts at a great price – and titles include "Promise" by Diane Marsh, "Love Crazy" by Chazz Mac, "Love In My Eyes" by Gene O, "Treat You Right" by Ian Martin with Jill Zadeh, "The Other Side" by Matthew Winchester, "Listening To Your Heart" by Tyrone Lee, "Even A Fool" by Dunn Street, "Help Yourself To My Love (live)" by Kashif, "Will You Be My Lady" by Damon Cooper, "The Road" by Paul Johnson, "Amazing" by Victor Haynes, "Funky Maharaja (heavy funk mix)" by Sham De Re with Xantone Black, "It's All Divine" by James Day & Darren Polite with Tina Broussard and U-Nam, "Call On Me" by The R&R Orchestra, and "Heartbreaking (classic mix)" by The Sound Principle with Richard Anthony Davis.

✨✧ VariousReal Good Feeling – 20 Funky Nuggets ... CD
Essential, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare cuts from a variety of different sources – maybe presented without the deeper notes of compilations on labels like Ace or Numero, but with a musical quality that's totally great all the way through! We recognize some of these cuts from the Chicago and west coast scenes of the late 60s – but there's also more obscure gems from the 70s south, and other points too – all brought together as a non-nonsense package that reminds us of the kind of less-official funky compilations we used to have to turn to back in the 90s. Titles include "Turn Her Loose" by Chuck Bernard, "I'm Running A Losing Race" by Tyrone Davis, "Real Good Feeling" by Bobby Byrd, "Everybody Gonna Give Their Thing Away" by Lee Fields, "I Know You Love Me" by The Sisters Love, "Funky Funky Horse (part 1)" by Lester Young & The California Playboys, "If This Ain't Really Love" by Bobby & Cindy, "Baby You're Right" by Monk Higgins, "We'll Meet Again" by Lee Sain, "Jim Jam" by The Ultimate Truth, "Eight Miles High" by Eight Miles High, "Theme For Sisters Greene" by The Greene Sisters, "I'm Gonna Try To Be Real True To You"b y Bird Rollins, "You're The Real Thing" by Pride, "Break Down" by We The People, and "War" by franky & The Spindles.

✨✧ Johnny MooreLonely Heart In The City ... CD
Grapevine (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sockin soul from an under-heard Chicago legend! Johnny Moore was one of the best deep soul singers in the Windy City scene of the late 60s – but an artist who only ever recorded singles across a variety of labels, so he's not as well remembered as album-oriented artists, like Syl Johnson or Tyrone Davis. Not that that's a problem, though – because in some way, it means that a CD like this is even more essential than finding the original vinyl! The set's really wonderful – and features Johnny belting out a huge range of original tunes – all with a care, confidence, and soulful depth that makes us wonder why he wasn't huge! The first-ever set like this of Johnny's work – with a total of 25 tracks, and great notes. Titles include "Lonely Heart In The City", "It May Be Tears Of Joy", "Sold On You", "You're The One To Blame", "It's All Over", "Just Be For Real", "That's What You Said", "What More Can I Do", "Spend The Rest Of My Life", and "Baby If You Let Me".

✨✧ Joe TexBumps & Bruises (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Joe Tex bumps with the best of his contemporaries in the 70s – but at a level that still holds onto all the warmth and humanity of his earlier recordings too! There's definitely a bit of a dancefloor groove to the record, but it never dampens the spirit in Joe's vocals – and in a way, the approach is somewhat similar to that used by Tyrone Davis and Johnnie Taylor for some of their own albums at Columbia in the late 70s. Joe's longtime producer Buddy Killen is on deck, to ensure that the spirit is just right – and some of the best tracks are more midtempo funky than out and out club numbers. The set's gotten a lot of new attention in recent years, after the great track "I Almost Got To Heaven Once" was sampled to great effect by Ice Cube – and titles also include the funky "Ain't Gonna Bump No More", which was Joe's big disco hit – plus "Be Cool", "We Held On", "Hungry For Your Love", and "Leaving You Dinner". CD also features three bonus tracks – the single mixes of "Ain't Gonna Bump No More", "Hungry For Your Love", and "We Held On". CD

✨✧ Larry Saunders & OthersFree Angela (with download) ... LP
Secret Stash, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An incredibly righteous bit of soul – one of the few albums ever cut by 70s mellow soul genius Larry Saunders, and an amazing tribute to Angela Davis! Larry's got a fantastic voice – one that we'd rank right up there with Donny Hathaway or Marvin Gaye, and which is recorded here with sublimely spare arrangements that have a slight southern soul touch, but which are more in the east coast indie mode in which he often worked. There's other artists in the mix, too – a few others brought together by August Moon/Mr Wiggles for the project – singing and playing some amazing work that makes the whole thing a lost righteous soul treasure. The whole album's amazing – almost like finding a part 2 to What's Going On, or listening into what Otis Redding might have sounded like, had he made it to the 70s. Titles include Saunders singing "Free Angela", "This World", and "Where Did Peace Go" – and other cuts include "Nobody Knows" by Dickie Wonder, "I Can Be" by Brother Love, "Old Uncle Tom Is Dead" by Nitroglycerine, "Baby Can't You See" by Tyrone Thomas, and "Geraldine Jones" by Soul Encyclopedia. This great vinyl version from Secret Stash comes with a sweet 8 page booklet, too! LP, Vinyl record album
