MFSBLove Is The Message ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1973. Very Good+ ... $5.99
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".

VariousKiss Mastermixes Vol 1 ... LP
Prelude, 1982. Very Good+ 2LP ... $19.99
A pretty cool 2LP set that brings the "mastermix" formula of New York's Kiss-FM to wax! The "mastermix" was a daily feature on the station – one that took 3 big tracks of the day, and blended them into one long tune. Mixes are by Shep Pettibone – and tracks include "A Little Bit Of Jazz" by Nick Straker Band, "Give it To Me" by Conquest, "Dyin To Be Dancin" by Empress, "Searchin To Find The One" by Unlimited Touch, "Come Let Me Love You" by Jeanette Lady Day, "Can You Handle It" by Sharon Redd, "Gonna Get Over You" by France Joli, "Body Music" by The Strikers, and "You're The One For Me" by D-Train.

✨✧ Audrey WheelerLet It Be Me (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/FTG, 1987. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Audrey Wheeler's debut album – a really top-shelf effort crafted after years of lending her vocals to other folks' records, and a classic early stint in the group Unlimited Touch! Preston Glass handled production, and the set's about as sharp as can be for a mainstream soul album of the time – still a bit heavy on the beats that had come into vogue a few years before, but put together with a richness that really fits Wheeler's deep vocals – and which shows some of the changes that soul music was making towards the end of the 80s. There's plenty of hooks in the mix, but things are also nicely free from commercial cliches too – and titles include "Love On The Inside", "Irresistible", "Forget About Her", "I Miss You Love ", "Don't Lose Your Touch", and "Let It Be Me". CD features bonus tracks "Irresistible (extended)", "Irresistible (UK rmx)", and "Forget About Her (club mix)". CD

✨✧ Gunter Kallmann ChoirKallman Choir Originals Vol 1 – Elisabeth Serenade/Serenade Im Schlosspark ... CD
Polydor/Verve (Germany), 1962/1964. New Copy ... $12.99
Dreamy vocals from the Gunter Kallmann Choir – two early albums back to back on a single CD! Elisabeth Serenade has the mixed male/female ensemble taking on a host of tunes that sometimes have traditional roots, other times are more contemporary German numbers – but still a bit different than the groovier songs they'd cut later in the 60s. Arrangements are by Kurt Edelhagen and Werner Twardy – and while the vocals are pretty straightforward, they do have a wonderfully lush vibe that prefigures the sound of later groups like Singer Unlimited. Titles include "La Montanara", "Serenade Aus Die Millionen Des Harlekin", "Traum Melodie", "Elisabeth Serenade", and "Bei Walzermusik". Serenade In Schlosspark is a batch of tunes set in a castle garden – served up with a slightly regal feel in the arrangements, in ways that almost have the Gunter Kallman ensemble singing with an even more heavenly sound than usual! A few numbers have playful melodies, with almost some Alpine touches – while others are more staid – and titles include "Indian Song", "Kerzen Serenade", "Liebe Die Nie Vergeht", "Tiritomba", "Wiegenlied", and "Concerto D'Amour".

Young-Holt UnlimitedBeat Goes On ... LP
Brunswick, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
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".

✨✧ Joy UnlimitedSchmetterlinge (aka Butterflies) ... LP
BASF/Garden Of Delights (Germany), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Fusion-inspired rock from Joy Unlimited – a heady group that really picked up the best of the progressive side of the German sound of the early 70s, but who also managed to give the tunes a bit more focus and direction than usual! Instrumentation includes some heavy jamming organ, guitar, and horns – all with plenty of jazzy touches – but the real strength of the set is almost the lead vocals by Joy, who sings here in a bluesy mix of rock and soul, almost hitting a Lydia Pense sort of style. Titles include "In Search Of The Last Word", "Rudiment", "Connection", "For You & Me", "Suppression", "Rankness", "Face Of War", "Sensual Impressions", and "Eden Park". LP, Vinyl record album
(Hand numbered limited edition of 1000! Includes a great bonus insert, too!)

✨✧ Walter Raim ConceptEndless Possibilities ... LP
MTA/Decca, 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
Heavenly work from The Walter Raim Concept – a warmly-tinged vocal group with a sound that's somewhere between Spanky & Our Gang and Singers Unlimited! A few years earlier, and the group might have just been a stock "chorus vocals" sort of ensemble – but here, at the dawn of the 70s, they're recording with a style that has a fair bit of Sunshine Pop touches too – a mode that reminds us a lot of the Alan Copeland Singers album on A&M, thanks to a nice undercurrent of groove in the mix! Singers are both male and female – coming together with a sweet style that's a bit like The Free Design, but a bit more grown up too – and the titles include some originals by Raim, plus a few other well-chosen tunes. Tracks include "Endless Possibilities", "It's Always Somewhere Else", "A Woman Looking For Love", "City Of Grey", "Those Beautiful People", "Nice Lady", "I'll Never Fall In Love Again", and "I Hear Bells".

✨✧ Roger (Roger Troutman)Unlimited! ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
