Tyrone DavisCan't You Tell It's Me ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1979. New Copy ... $7.99 12.98
Fantastic mellow soul from Tyrone Davis – a great reminder that his vocals were still some of the burningest in 70s soul – sounding especially great in a record like this! Side one of the album's especially great – an all-mellow side that almost acts like some mini-suite of love songs, with a slinky, sexy, late nite sound! Side two picks up the groove a bit, but never too much – and Davis' warmly crackling vocals come through with a tremendous amount of feeling, even amidst clubby rhythms. Leo Graham produced, and arrangements are by Tom Tom, Gil Askey, and James Mack – on tracks that include "Can't You Tell It's Me", "Be With Me", "Heart Failure", "Burnin Up", "Love You Forever", and "Really Gonna Miss You".

Tyrone DavisEverything In Place (with bonus track) ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1981. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
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". CD features a bonus 7" mix of "Just My Love". CD

Tyrone DavisHome Wrecker ... LP
Dakar, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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 Can't Go On This Way ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1978. New Copy ... $7.99 12.98
A late 70s gem from Tyrone's years on Columbia Records – one that shows both sides of his talents for the label! The set starts out with an extended clubby groover called "Get On Up (Disco)" – a bumping sort of number that's clearly trying to push him into Johnnie Taylor territory, and which comes off surprisingly well. But even better are the rest of the tracks on the set – which update Tyrone's older Brunswick sound with a smoother, more sophisticated sort of style – still recorded in Chicago, and with some southern soul traces – but usually done in a warmer midtempo groove, with excellent lead vocals and great backing from The Haywood Sisters. Titles include "It's You It's You", "Bunky", "All I Ever Need", "I Can't Go On This Way", and "Can't Help But Say". CD

Tyrone DavisIn The Mood ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Very Good+ ... $11.99
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 DavisTurning Point! ... LP
Dakar, 1975. Very Good+ ... $2.99
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).

✨✧ Little MiltonFriend Of Mine ... LP
Glades, 1976. Good+ ... $9.99
Tight and soulful blues from Little Milton – just the sort of record that helped him cross over to bigger audiences back in the day, and a set that still sounds plenty great all these many years later! The set was done in Chicago – arranged by James Mack, with backing vocals from Kitty & The Haywoods – and the sound is a sweet west side mix of rootsy and soulful elements – a blend that shows the same growing sophistication of the Malaco scene at the time, at a level that moves nicely away from college circuit blues cliches of the 70s. Milton's vocals are wonderful – raspy and appealing with a Tyrone Davis-like charm – and titles include "Friend Of Mine", "Don't Turn Away", "You're Gonna Make Me Cry", "It's All Bad News", "Sundown", "Bring It On Back", and "Baby It Ain't No Way".

Little MiltonIf Walls Could Talk ... LP
Checker, 1969. Very Good- ... $9.99
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".

Percy MayfieldWalking On A Tightrope ... LP
Brunswick, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Great work from R&B legend Percy Mayfield – one of the singer's most obscure sessions, and really more of a soul record overall! The album was done for Brunswick at the end of the 60s – and has lots of work from Chicago soul arrangers like Johnny Cameron and Willie Henderson – both of whom give the set a nice sort of west side kick, with a groove that's somewhere in between Syl Johnson and Tyrone Davis! Mayfield's vocals definitely still hang onto an older school of singing – but the arrangements can't help but update his groove – and a number of the tracks have this great funky crackle at the bottom that's a mighty nice surprise. Titles include "I Made It Just The Same", "Alma Lee", "My Baby's Gone", "To Me Your Name Is Love", "PM Blues", and "Danger Zone". LP, Vinyl record album

Sun RaSun Ra & His Arkestra – At Inter-Media Arts – April, 1991 ... CD
Modern Harmonic, 1991. New Copy 2CD ... $23.99 24.98
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".

Ted TaylorTaylor Made ... LP
Ronn, Early 70s. Good+ ... $8.99
An obscure one from Ted Taylor – a lot blusier than some of his earlier soul work from the 60s, but with some great funky touches that really make the record great! As with most of these Ronn/Jewel albums, there's no real credits, so we have trouble figuring out who helped Ted get his groove so strongly – but we can tell you that the album feels like a combination of Stax soul (ala Johnny Taylor) and west side Chicago soul (ala Tyrone Davis.) Includes the great cut "It's A Funky Situation", plus "Houston Town", "Who's Doing It To Who", "Papa's Gonna Make Love", "I Feel A Chill", and "This Is A Troubled World". LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby WomackHome Is Where The Heart Is ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Very Good ... $3.99
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

✨✧ VariousBlack Fire New Spirits – Deep & Radical Jazz In The USA 1957 to 1982 ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... Out Of Stock
Deeply spiritual jazz from the American underground of the 20th century – music that sits in a perfect space between straight jazz and more avant garde material – always reaching out in this really soaring, searching sort of way – but never too outside or free! Rhythms are at the core of most of these numbers – often modal elements, with especially strong basslines – or earthy percussion with strong Afrocentric inspirations, recast here in the huge wave of jazz experimentation of the 60s and 70s! Most tracks are from those key decades, but he set also features some overlooked gems from the 80s too – and a good deal of these tracks are from albums we hardly ever see anymore these days. As usual, Soul Jazz has done a stunning job with the notes and package – dovetailing with their book of the same name – and tracks include "Second Line March" by David Lee, "Flashback Of Time" by Creative Arts Ensemble, "Chang Chang Chang" by Yusef Lateef, "Utopia & Visions" by Don Cherry, "It's A Trip" by Last Poets, "Universal Spiritual Revolt" by Tyrone Washington, "In The Moog" by Harold McKinney, "Spaces & Things" by Doug Hammond, "Tzaddi Vau (part 1)" by Pheeran Ak Laff, and "Dealin" by Richard Davis.
