✨✧ 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 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
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
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
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

Tyrone DavisTurn Back The Hands Of Time (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Dakar/Solid (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... About April 27, 2016
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

✨✧ Tyrone DavisIn The Mood ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 DavisEverything In Place ... LP
Columbia, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A massive amount of work recorded by Chicago's mighty Tyrone Davis – an artist who burst into the world with a brilliant string of records for the Brunswick label! Actually, Davis mostly recorded for Brunswick's Dakar imprint – but that's a technicality we can handle, given the quality of the music on this set – short, tight, totally wonderful Chicago soul numbers – a perfect blend of Davis' bluesy roots and some of the hipper, more sophisticated styles that were breaking at Brunswick! We haven't checked for sure, but we do believe that some of these cuts weren't issued as LP tracks – and the 2CD collection features 51 titles that include "Need Your Lovin Everyday", "Can I Change My Mind", "One Way Ticket", "Love Bones", "True Love Is Hard To Find", "Wrapped Up In Your Warm & Tender Love", "This Time", "Where Lovers Meet", "Was It Just A Feeling", "After All This Time", "Come & Get This Ring", "We Got A Love", "When I'm Not Around", and lots lots more!

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

Larry Saunders & OthersFree Angela (with download) ... LP
Secret Stash, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 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

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

Atlantic, Late 40s/1950s/1960s/Early 70s. Used 8CDs ... $58.99
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!

CL BlastI Wanna Get Down ... CD
Cotillion (UK), 1980. New Copy ... About April 29, 2016
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".

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

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

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! Titles include the incredible "Voice From The Inside" – a tripped out funky number with a famous sample on the intro – plus "I Understand", "Snake In The Grass", "Trouble's A Comin", "My Love", and "Feeling Is Believing".

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.

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

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". LP, Vinyl record album

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.
