✨✧ Unlimited TouchUnlimited Touch ... LP
Prelude, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
An excellent bit of 80s groove! Unlimited Touch have a cool 2-female lead vocal style – and they keep it tight and soulful on grooves that have a nice tight club sound, in a style that often reminds us of Roy Ayers produced albums, like Ladies Of The 80s, or some of the more uptempo tracks on the Ramp album. The record's one of the more soulful efforts to come out on the Prelude label at the time – and it's got lots of nice tracks like "Private Party", "In The Middle", "Happy Ever After", and "I Hear Music In The Streets". LP, Vinyl record album

MFSBLove Is The Message (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $14.99
A key moment for the Philly soul scene of the 70s – and the first album to feature the MFSB backing group as a solo act on their own! The ensemble were responsible for key sounds on countless soul singles of the time – yet also find a way to soar beautifully on their own – in a sweet instrumental groove that matches the strength of Barry White's Love Unlimited Orchestra, and which was definitely a key inspiration for the sound of the Salsoul Orchestra! There's definitely a bit of early disco in the mix, but the style's more uptempo east coast overall – that pre-disco groove that was going down in the clubs – with larger strings added to a core group of funky rhythm players. Gamble & Huff production make the whole thing sparkle, and arrangements are by Vince Montana, Bobby Martin, and Jack Faith – on titles that include "Love Is The Message", "Cheaper To Keep Her", "TSOP", "Zack's Fanfare", "Touch Me In The Morning", and "My One & Only Love". CD features bonus tracks – "Love Is The Message (single version – with Three Degrees)", "TSOP (with Three Degrees)", and "Love Is The Message (Tom Moulton mix)". CD

VariousBrunswick Revisit – Selected By Tatsuo Sunaga ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
A host of great soul cuts from Brunswick Records – all pulled together by Sunaga T! Sunaga has one of the grooviest, most joyous styles of all the Japanese DJs we can think of – and he really brings that approach into play here with some wonderful numbers from Brunswick – most of which are Chicago soul tunes from right at the end of the 60s or start of the 70s – usually produced with that soaring, leaping groove that was big on the Windy City at the time. Vocals are wonderful as the grooves – and titles include "We Need Love" by The Directions, "Stoned Out Of My Mind" by The Chi-Lites, "Love Land" by Lost Generation, "Who You Really Are" by Fred Hughes, "Honey Baby" by Ginji James, "I'll Bake Me A Man" by Barbara Acklin, "Don't Say Boodbye" by First Love, "Whatcha Gonna Do About Me" by Jackie Wilson, "How Insensitive" by Young Holt Unlimited, and "Love Hangover" by Touch.

✨✧ Anita KerrSounds (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite possibly the grooviest album ever from Anita Kerr – a set that brings the sweet sound of her vocal quartet into play with some of the best elements of the Sunshine Pop generation! The orchestrations, arrangements, and tunes here are all a lot hipper than before – not just simple pop tunes, given the Kerr touch – but a completely remade approach to the music, with deep consideration for all elements, and where they might be used the best! There's a really heavenly quality to the entire set – a sound that's somewhere between early Association and the best Singers Unlimited work at MPS – and along with a few well-chosen tunes by other writers, Anita even includes a few self-penned gems of her own. Titles include "I'm Falling In Love Again", "I Would Love You", "The Two Of Us", "They Always Ask Me", "Wine In The Wind", "Happiness Is", and "Today Is". CD features three bonus tracks – "One Day", "All This", and "One Up On Me". CD

Roger (Roger Troutman)Unlimited! ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... $13.99
Plenty of beats here from Roger Troutman – going for a sound that's maybe even more electro than some of his earlier solo work, at a level that really seems to be pushing the Zapp sound further for the 80s! The style is funky, but touched with lots of elements that have wended their way from indie hip hop up to mainstream soul – all at a level that later acts might fuse together with a bit more warmth, but which still has the starker feel of electro soul in Troutman's hands. Titles include "Thrill Seekers", "I Want To Be You Man", "I Really Want to Be You Man", "Night & Day", and "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag". CD

Walter WanderleyMoondreams ... LP
CTI/A&M, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $29.99
Walter Wanderley opens up wonderfully on both organ and electric harpsichord here – going for a very different sound than on his earlier records, and with plenty of great late 60s CTI touches! The music is as heavenly as you might guess from the title – a dreamy recasting of Brazilian bossa modes with some of the sunnier 60s touches of the A&M scene – all wrapped together with impeccable arrangements both from Deodato and Wanderley himself. The record mixes a bit of strings with a sweet chorus of flutes and just a bit of trumpet – all undercut by some snapping rhythms that include a bit of percussion from Airto, plus occasional chorus vocals sung by Flora Purim and Stella Stevens! The mix of players, modes and sounds here is really wonderful – and makes for a unique album that propels the older 60s bossa sound firmly towards the more sophisticated modes of the 70s – all at a level that Wanderley never hit again in the studio! Titles include great versions of Marcos Valle's "Proton, Electron, Neutron", Egberto Gismonti's "O Sonho (Moondreams)", Luiz Gonzaga's "Asa Branca", and Young-Holt Unlimited's classic "Soulful Strut" – plus "Penha", "L'Amore Dice Ciao", "5:30 Plane", and "Mirror Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Vinyl has a mark that clicks on "5:30 Plane".)

Young-Holt UnlimitedBeat Goes On ... LP
Brunswick, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
The beat goes on, and just keeps getting better and better too – thanks to the growing sophistication of the Young/Holt duo, once they broke away from Ramsey Lewis! The bass and drums share equal space in the spotlight – and the production has the former really up high in the mix, which makes for a non-stop sort of energy that begins with the group's jazzy roots, but often takes off tighter flights into instrumental funk! And unlike the group's initial trio outing for Brunswick, this album has some great larger arrangements from Sonny Sanders – who brings in lots of excellent funky touches. Titles include a number of strong original instrumentals like "Yon Gimme Thum", "Dig Her Walk", "Baby Your Light Is Out", "Yum Yum", and "Doin' The Thing" – plus covers like "Listen Here", "Good Vibrations", and "The Beat Goes On". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Anita KerrAll You Need Is Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
All you need is love – that, and some great vocals and backings as well! Anita Kerr really gets groovy on this little set – taking the famous sound of her harmony quartet into some great late 60s territory – a range of pop tunes hinted at by the Beatles reference on the cover – all arranged and conducted by Anita herself, and produced with some great Sunshine Pop touches! The mixed male/female sound of the quartet is a nice precursor to the 70s recordings by Singers Unlimited – sweet and smooth, but bumped along by a groove on most of these tracks – and titles include "Autumn Afternoon", "No Salt On Her Tail", "Holiday", "A Natural Woman", "Never My Love", "I Make A Fool Of Myself", and "The Last Waltz". CD features bonus tracks – "The Smile You Save For Strangers", "I Can't Help Remembering You", and "For Bert". CD

✨✧ Young-Holt UnlimitedFunky But! ... LP
Brunswick, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Funky but also loosely jazzy and soulful grooves from Young Holt Unlimited! This is easily the most obscure album by the Young Holt combo for Brunswick – and a really wicked set that has them stretching out a lot from their early years! The album's got some nice electric touches that point the way towards the group's looser, freer 70s work – yet still moves very nicely in the pocket, through a mix of soul jazz originals and very groovy covers – all done in the group's trademark tight, syncopated groove! Titles include "Lady Madonna", "Valley Of The Dolls", "Orient", "Country Slicker Joe", "The Funky Duck", "Sombrero Sam", "Eleanor Rigby", "Secret Love" and "Honey". LP, Vinyl record album
