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 DavisI Can't Go On This Way ... LP
Columbia, 1978. Very Good+ ... $7.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

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 DavisHome Wrecker ... CD
Dakar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... About April 27, 2016 (delayed)
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 ... CD
Dakar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... About April 27, 2016 (delayed)
The title's a great one – as Tyrone Davis has always had it, and has never lost it – but he sounds especially wonderful here during his legendary run for the Dakar/Brunswick label, where he was really able to forge a unique groove! Davis' vocals are wonderful – proud and powerful, but with this little rasp that brings in a great sense of humanity – and the backings are soaring in a Chicago soul style, but have a few bluesy undercurrents that really show off the west side roots of Davis. Arrangements are by Gene Barge, Tom Tom Washington, and Jerry Long – and titles include "I Had It All The Time", "Your Love Keeps Haunting Me", "After All This Time", and "Was I Just a Fool" – all great songs about love lost and love's worries!

Dakar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... About April 27, 2016 (delayed)
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". CD

Dakar/Solid (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... About April 27, 2016 (delayed)
The second album from Chicago soul legend Tyrone Davis – and every bit as wonderful as his first! Like that set, this one bounces along on a wave of well cast Chisoul arrangements – penned by Tom Washington and Willie Henderson, with a great mix of the sweet and the rough – bubbling under with a heavier rhythm than you might expect for such a session. The whole set skips along with a sound that's totally tight, but also plenty darn righteous – and Tyrone's voice crackles with honesty and feeling on the album's entire set list. Tracks include the mega-hit "Turn Back The Hands Of Time", plus "Undying Love", "If It's Love That You're After", "I Keep Coming Back", and "Let Me Back In". CD features some nice bonus tracks too – "Need Your Lovin", "When I'm Not Around", and "If I Didn't Love You". CD

Columbia/FTG, 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An overlooked smooth soul gem from Tyrone Davis – cut during his early years at Columbia, and recorded with a sweet Chicago finish! Arrangements are by James Mack, who also handled the small backing group on the record – and Tyrone's singing with that raspy style we always love, fused into a mode that's a bit more modern than the work on his later Brunswick albums – with this laidback, warm style that really fits the spirit of the title – and which has Davis maturing into a style we never would have expected a few years before! The balance of southern and modern elements is great – and titles include "Beware Beware", "Put Your Trust In Me", "Give It Up", "You're Too Much", "Wrong Doers", and "Close To You". CD features bonus tracks – 7" single versions of "Give It Up", "Close To You", and "Wrong Doers". CD

✨✧ Chuck JacksonGoin' Back To Chuck Jackson ... LP
Motown, 1969. Very Good+ ... $16.99
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

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

Spring, 1975. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Joe's up in New York, working with producer Raeford Gerald in that early 70s "southern goes disco" mode that pushed Joe further up the charts than might have been expected. Joe's vocals still have that strong down-home honesty, but most of the tracks on the album have a mid 70s east coast club groove that's not really disco, but more in that Tyrone Davis/Johnnie Taylor smooth southern modern mode. Titles include "Get Down Get Down", "In My Baby's Arms", "Music In My Bones", "It's Crying Time In Memphis", and "Fire Burning". LP, Vinyl record album

Joe TexBumps & Bruises (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $5.99 13.99
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

✨✧ Bobby WomackHome Is Where The Heart Is/Pieces ... CD
Columbia/Soul Brother (UK), 1976/1978. Used ... $11.99
2 mid 70s gems from Bobby Womack – back to back on a single CD! Home Is Where The Heart Is is an exceptional album from Bobby'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". Pieces is great too – done with a strong mellow soul sound that still incorporated a lot of Womack's roots and his strengths, but which was also a lot more forward-looking, and which helped Bobby escape from some of the cliches of his later UA albums. In a way, his shift was similar to that of Johnnie Taylor at the label, and it's no surprise that the great Don Davis was at the helm. There's plenty of great guests, too, like Candi Staton, David Ruffin, and The Horny Horns. Titles include "Trust Your Heart", "It's Party Time", "When Love Begins, Friendship Ends", "Caught Up In The Middle", "Never Let Nothing Get The Best Of You", and "Wind It Up". CD

Expansion (UK), 2016. New Copy 3 CDs ... $16.99
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.

Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... About April 27, 2016 (delayed)
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". CD

At some level, Johnny's got the raspy warmth and charm of labelmate Tyrone Davis – but Henderson also gives him a bit more of a bounce on the bottom of the backings – kicking things into a groove that's nice and funky on the best cuts!

Cotillion (UK), 1980. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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".

Dakar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Classic work from this massively overlooked 70s soul singer! The set's one of a rare few albums cut by Sidney Joe Qualls – a fantastic talent who's probably better known for his work behind the scenes, and as a songwriter, than he is as a voice on his own. The session is produced with a style that kind of mixes Brunswick Chicago soul with rootsier southern elements – stepping proud in the 70s territory of Johnnie Taylor or Tyrone Davis, but sounding way way better here, and with a much more independent vibe. Plus, the album boasts some incredible material – original tunes written by the likes of Sam Dees, Clifford Davis, George Davis, and others. Titles include "Shut Your Mouth", "Run To Me", "I Enjoy Loving You", "Please Help Me", "Can't Get Enough of Your Love", and "The Next Time I Fall in Love". CD

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.

One Der Ful/Secret Stash, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.
