Unlimited TouchUnlimited Touch ... LP
Prelude, 1981. Very Good ... $6.99
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 ... 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". LP, Vinyl record album
(In original shrinkwrap, with hype sticker.)

Prelude, 1982. Used 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A pretty cool 2LP set that brings the "mastermix" formula of New York's Kiss-FM to wax!

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.

Joy UnlimitedSchmetterlinge (aka Butterflies) ... LP
BASF/Garden Of Delights (Germany), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99
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!)

Roger (Roger Troutman)Unlimited! ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1987. Used ... $4.99
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

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".

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".

Walter WanderleyMoondreams ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1969. Used ... $14.99
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".
