Tyrone DavisCan I Change My Mind ... LP
Dakar, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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 DavisEverything In Place ... LP
Columbia, 1981. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Great work from Tyrone Davis' under-recognized years at Columbia Records – a wonderful set of mature modern soul numbers that really let the singer find a whole new groove! The whole thing's nicely free of any sort of commercial overtones – and instead, the album has Davis really spinning out this rich, warm groove – arranged throughout by James Mack, who brings in a perfect Chicago balance of soul and sophistication – elements that many of Tyrone's contemporaries cooked up in the past, but hardly did this well at the time! And Davis' vocals somehow seem better than ever – more expressive in more ways, but never overtone – really illustrating that path that deep soul took to the Windy City, while changing up its sound in the process. Titles include a remake of "Turn Back The Hands Of Time", plus "Just My Luck", "I Won't Let Go", "You're Heaven Sent", "You Made Me Beautiful", and "Let's Be Closer Together". LP, Vinyl record album

Tyrone DavisHome Wrecker ... LP
Dakar, 1974. Very Good ... $14.99
Tyrone Davis never seems to miss – and even on an overlooked Brunswick album like this, he still sounds better than most of his contemporaries! Davis is really able to blend both deep soul roots and more sophisticated phrasing – at a level that helped transform the sound of southern soul in the 70s! Even though Tyrone himself hailed from Chicago, he has a vibe here that clearly informs new modes from singers like George McCrae, Johnny Taylor, and many others who'd move in the same direction that Davis had been handling this well for years. Arrangement and production are by the cream of the Brunswick stable – talents that include Carl Davis, Willie Henderson, Monk Higgins, and Otis Leavill – and titles include the great cut "Homewreckers", written by Sam Dees and Tyrone – plus "Was I Just A Fool", "How Could I Forget You", "It Aint' Me No More", "This Time", and "After All This Time".

Tyrone DavisI Had It All The Time ... LP
Dakar, 1972. Very Good- ... $3.99
Another stone winner from Tyrone Davis – cut during his classic stretch on the Dakar label! During the Dakar years, Tyrone just kept turning out great little soul songs – filled with that raspy emotion that was his unique vocal trademark, and touched with a bit of the blues from his west side roots. The title cut's a hit on this, but there's loads of other beautiful songs about love and remorse – "Your Love Keeps Haunting Me", "After All This Time", and "Was I Just a Fool". Produced by Willie Henderson, with arrangements by Gene Barge and Tom Tom Washington. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tyrone DavisI Just Can't Keep On Going ... CD
Columbia/Elemental (France), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
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

Dakar, 1972. Very Good ... $2.99
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

✨✧ Banks & HamptonPassport To Ecstasy ... LP
Warner, 1977. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Modern soul, but with a bit of a southern twist – a sweet set recorded in Muscle Shoals by the team of Homer Banks and Carl Hampton – and produced by Brad Shapiro with all the great mix of modes he was bringing to records with Millie Jackson and others! The album's got a nice sort of groove – almost with an undercurrent of funk at points, bubbling along nicely with the vocals of Banks and Hampton in a way that's almost similar to some of Tyrone Davis' great work for Columbia – a great update of older southern soul modes, but in ways that still hold onto some of the best roots too. There's a great blend of smooth groovers and mellow midtempo tracks on the set – and titles include "Let's Make Up", "I'm Gonna Have To Tell Her", "Passion & Promises", "Passport to Ecstasy", "Believe", "Loving You", and "We're Movin' On".

Chocolate City, 1980. Very Good ... $2.99
A sweet, smooth stepper from the great Randy Brown – and a record that's got the same sublime mix of mellow grooves and earthy vocals that you might find on some of Tyrone Davis' best late 70s work for Columbia! Tunes are all plenty darn fresh – written by the team of Homer Banks and Chuck Brooks, who also produced the album – and Randy's got this way of hitting a groove that's confident, but never arrogant – a perfect late 70s masculine mode, of the sort only a handful of singers could handle this well! Titles include "Without You (I Can't Make It Through The Night)", "We Ought To Be Doin It", and "Do You Love Me?" – all of which have great hooks – plus "Do You Love Me", "Love Be With You", and "Love Formula".

Willie MabonI'm The Fixer ... LP
USA/P-Vine (Japan), Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $38.99
Really great work from singer Willie Mabon – best known as a Chicago bluesman from the 50s, but an artist who's in even more soulful territory on these sublime sides from the 60s! Willie's got a quality here that really links together Chicago's blues and soul traditions – in a vibe that prefaces later work by singers like Tyrone Davis or Syl Johnson, but shares their similar sense of deep roots and modern swing. Mabon's a hell of a charismatic force on all these cuts – a singer really ripe for rediscovery, especially on this overlooked stretch of his career. The work was all done for the excellent USA label, and shares the genre-stepping quality of much of that imprint's best music – and titles include "Some More", "Something For Nothing", "Just Got Some", "I'm The Fixer", "Somebody Gotta Pay", and "Lover Gal".

✨✧ Junior ParkerLike It Is/Honey Drippin Blues ... CD
Mercury/BGO (UK), 1967/1969. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A pair of late 60s gems from the bluesy singer Junior Parker – back to back on a single CD! Like It Is features standout soul from the great Junior Parker – a singer who started out in blues, and already had a big legacy of music for Sun and Duke Records by the time of this Mercury set – but maybe sounding even more amazing here with some soul touches in the backings! The set was produced by Bobby Robinson, and arranged by Gene Bowlegs Miller – and has a Memphis recording pedigree that's a bit like the best way that Stax/Volt was mixing blues and soul in the late 60s! There's still some of the slower-burning Duke moments, but there's also some great sock-soul tracks too – on titles that include "Come Back Baby", "Just Like A Fish", "Country Girl", "Sometimes I Wonder", and "Cracked Up Over You". Honey Drippin Blues is killer work from Junior Parker – an artist who was already great in his early Duke Records years – but one who really seemed to take off even more as the 60s moved on! On records like this, Parker picks up a strong undercurrent of funky soul – a groove that's a perfect fit for Mercury's Blue Rock label – which often did a great job of merging the worlds of blues and soul – especially in the music of Junior Wells. Production has lots of nice Chicago soul touches, and at times Junior's vocals move into a territory that's almost a bit like the groove of Tyrone Davis at the time. Great stuff throughout – and titles include "I Got Money", "Lovin Man On Your Hands", "Easy Lovin", and "I'm So Satisfied". CD

Sun RaSun Ra & His Arkestra – At Inter-Media Arts – April, 1991 (2016 Black Friday Release) ... CD
Modern Harmonic, 1991. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99
Fantastic late live material by Sun Ra and the Arkestra – presented here properly for the first time ever – with fantastic sound, and the full contents of two different sets – which really lets you get to hear the Arkestra at their best! Each concert is a wonderful progression of material – and really show the way that, near the end of Ra's life, the group was able to embrace so many different generations of jazz at once – sounding straight one minute, out the next, leaning trad at others, and snapping back with a sense of modernity that's still years ahead of its time! June Tyson and Michael Ray sing on a few tracks – and John Gilmore even sings once, too – and the group features Gilmore on tenor, Marshall Allen on flute and alto, James Jacson on flute and bassoon, Tyrone Hill on trombone, Knoel Scott on alto, Jothan Callins on bass, Charles Davis on baritone, and Ahmed Abdullah and Michael Ray on trumpets. As with most Arkestra concerts, the transition between moods and songs is what really makes this set great – with lots of unique moments that further our faith in the live Sun Ra experience. Titles include "Yeah Man", "Mayan Temples", "Advice To Medics/Friendly Galaxy", "Opus In Springtime", "Carefree", "Cocktails For Two", "Planet Earth Day", "Space Loneliness", "Retrospect/East Of The Sun", "Early Autumn", "Hocus Pocus", "Prelude To A Kiss", and "Space Is The Place/We Travel The Spaceways".

Larry Saunders & OthersFree Angela (with download) ... LP
Secret Stash, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
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

Solid (Japan), 1970s. New Copy ... $8.99
A really cool little collection of 70s soul music – one that brings together only tunes that have a love-based them, but which still have this joyous, soaring quality overall! These aren't ballads, or weepy heartbreak numbers – but upbeat tunes that groove together wonderfully in a rich array of grooves hand-picked from the catalogs of Brunswick, HDH, and Hi Records! Detroit, Chicago, and Memphis modes come together wonderfully, in a surprisingly unified groove – and titles include "Rock Me In The Cradle" by Freda Payne, "Something You Got" by Quiet Elegance, "Let Me Back In" by Tyrone Davis, "I Still Love You" by Jackie Wilson, "Mama's Little Baby" by Brotherly Love, "Gotta Find Me A Lover" by Erma Franklin, "99 Lbs" by Ann Peebles, "Don't Count Your Chickens" by Honey Cone, "What Have You Done With My Heart" by Imported Moods, and "Home Is Where The Heart Is" by Otis Clay.

VariousOne-Der-Ful Collection – M-Pac Records ... CD
One Der Ful/Secret Stash, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
A stunning collection of rare Chicago soul – pulled from the M-Pac label, which was part of the One-Derful family of records – and packed with vintage singles and 10 previously unreleased tracks too! This series is fantastic – the first really deep look at the Chicago underground genius of Ernie Leaner – producer, distributor, studio owner, and all-around non-stop force in Windy City soul during the 60s – as you'll hear from the gems on this set! The work here languished slightly in the shadows of bigger labels – like Okeh, Brunswick, and Chess – but the quality is all top-shelf, with an especially great run of male singers, both as solo acts and as groups. And like other volumes in the series, the notes and historical details are great – almost worth the price of admission alone, as they really illuminate this lost slice of Chicago soul – and point out that there's lots more greatness to discover, when you move past Curtis Mayfield, Tyrone Davis, and Jerry Butler. Titles include "All Of My Life" by The Ringleaders, "New Girl" by The Accents, "Angel" by Benny Turner, "So Glad" by Willie Parker, "Damper Down" by Bobby Davis, "Bad Situation" by Harold Burrage, "Change Of Heart" by Andrew Tibbs, "Never In A Million Years" by Willie Parker, "Don't Try To Fool Me" by Stacy Johnson, "Lonely Man" by Big Daddy Simpson, "Hey Mister" by Dorothy Prince, "The Earth Worm (part 1)" by Maurice Dollison & The Turnkeys, and "Let's Start Over" by The Ringleaders.

Essential, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
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.

Four rare slices of west coast soul – all hand-picked from the overlooked catalog of Modern Records – a label that's better-known for its R&B of the 50s, but which served up some fantastic soul in the following decade! Jackie Day belts it out of the park on "Before It's Too Late" – an upbeat, positive groover – and Vernon Garrett almost hits Tyrone Davis territory, with his own different tune titled "If I Could Turn Back The Hands Of Time". The Frank Wilson-penned "I've Gotta Get You Back" has a Detroit soul vibe – thanks to sweet lead vocals from Mary Love, and some nicely crafted arrangements – and Johnny Gilliam follows with "You Make Me Feel Like Someone" – a lost sophisticated soul cut that's very much in the best Walter Jackson territory of the time! 7-inch, Vinyl record

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".

✨✧ Bobby WomackHome Is Where The Heart Is ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
An exceptional album from Bobby Womack's years at Columbia Records – and a record that brings together smooth and roosty styles wonderfully! When Womack moved to Columbia, he was doing it at a time when a number of other older deep soul artists (Johnny Taylor, Betty Wright, Tyrone Davis) were making the shift – pulling their sound out of the indie ghetto, and going for a more sophisticated approach that expanded their style without dampening their spirit! In the case of Bobby, the shift was perhaps near perfect – as the raspy Womack vocals are still wonderfully in place, but the increasingly great choice of songs, warmer style of arrangements, and completely professional presentation of the material really helps push Bobby to the next level. Material was recorded in both Muscle Shoals and LA – and the set includes some great Womack originals, plus a few more great numbers by Prince Phillip Mitchell! Titles include "Home Is Where The Heart Is", "Something For My Head", "A Little Bit Salty", "How Long", "Standing In the Safety Zone", and "One More Chance On Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Willie's got a killer vocal style, with a warm raspy style that reminds us a bit of Tyrone Davis – but he's produced here with a swinging soul vibe by David Axelrod, and he sings to some spectacular arrangements by HB Barnum that are in his best style of the late 60s! The tracks are a wonderful mix of raw soul vocals and sophisticated production, and the album's the kind of rare soul album that we only ever turn up once in a while! Includes a great vocal version of Cannonball Adderley's "Walk Tall", plus the tracks "Bring On The Heartaches", "I'm Only A Man", "Mirror", and "Take Your Time". Excellent stuff! CD

Expansion (UK), 2016. New Copy 3 CDs ... 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.

Cotillion (UK), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ VariousAtlantic Rhythm & Blues – 1947-1974 (8 CD box set) ... CD
Atlantic, Late 40s/1950s/1960s/Early 70s. Used 8CDs ... Out Of Stock
Here it is, the mother of them all! The set's got 8CDs worth of killer soul, funk, and Rhythm & Blues – all culled from the rich history of the Atlantic records label, and lovingly put together with great notes and everything! Although this sort of set usually tends to be a bit simplistic, this box actually features a beautiful mix of tracks, lots of which are hard to get in any format. It's a lot to go through, but it's worth the trip – and this LP version just about never shows up anymore! We can't even begin to list the tracks here, there's 203(!) of them in all, but some of the artists include the Bar Kays, the Beginning of the End, Archie Bell & The Drells, Ruth Brown, Solomon Burke, the Capitols, Clarence Carter, the Chords, the Cookies, Don Covay, King Curtis, Tyrone Davis, the Drifters, Roberta Flack, King Floyd, Aretha Franklin, Major Harris, Donny Hathaway, the Ikettes, Willis Jackson, Nat Kendricks & The Swans, Barabra Lewis,the Mar-keys, Les McCann & Eddie Harris, Stick McGhee, Otis & Carla, the Persuaders, Percy Sledge, The Spinners, Willie Tee, Joe Tex, Chuck WIllis, Betty Wright and loads more! CD
(Out of print, please note that the outer box is not included – 8 CDs & booklet.)
