Van McCoyDisco Baby ... LP
Avco, 1975. Very Good+ ... $3.99
This is it! The record that helped put disco over in a huge way, with a sound that would go on to be heavily imitated for years to come. Sweeping disco production from Hugo & Luigi arranged and conducted by Van McCoy, already a studio mainstay by this point, coupled with a set of accessible numbers paved the way towards huge mainstream appeal for tracks like "The Hustle". This album also includes the title track, "Get Dancin", "Spanish Boogie", "Turn This Mother Out" plus covers of the Ohio Players' "Fire" and AWB's "Pick Up The Pieces". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ McCoy TynerTime For Tyner ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brilliant work by McCoy Tyner – an album that has him firmly stepping out of the shadow of Coltrane with a sound influenced by the rising Afro-centric style of soul jazz to emerge in the 70s! The group on the set is a quartet with Bobby Hutcherson on vibes – and the mixture of Hutcherson's vibes and Tyner's piano is extremely compelling – stretching out in long, rhythmic, modal lines that dance and light the groove no matter what the tune. The rest of the group features Herbie Lewis on bass and Freddie Waits on drums – and titles include the great original compositions "African Village", "May Street", and "Little Madimba". LP, Vinyl record album

AnacostiaAnacostia (1978) ... LP
Tabu, 1978. Very Good ... $1.99
Anacostia make the move to Tabu Records for this sweet second set – and they seem to have picked up more of a groove along the way! The same elements as before are firmly in place here – production by Charles Kipps, with supervision from Van McCoy – but the groove is a bit more focused, in ways that slide out spaciously with that warmer modern soul feel that made Tabu a real up-and-comer of a soul label in the late 70s. There's hints of 80s groove on the record, but at an earlier, warmer stage – mixed with some mellow cuts that really send the album home! Titles include "Take It Or Leave It", "I Don't Need", "All For You", "Ain't Nothin To It", "You've Got Love On Your Side", and "Anything For You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Chris BartleySweetest Thing This Side Of Heaven ... LP
Vando, 1967. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A sweet soul classic from late 60s Philly – the one and only album recorded by vocalist Chris Bartley – arranged and produced by Van McCoy! The style's really great – with a host of original tunes by Van that follow nicely in the style of Chris' hit title cut, and which show him off to be quite a well-versed singer. We're not sure why he never made it bigger – but possibly he was so eclipsed by the talents of Van it was hard to get out on his own! Includes the hit title cut – "Sweetest Thing This Side Of Heaven" – plus "Gotta Tell Somebody", "For You", "Sittin Pretty", "Hooked On You", "I'll Be Loving You", and "Sugar Baby".

Maxwell, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $24.99
Hard to find first LP by this east coast mixed male/female soul group that includes Zulema on vocals, along with two other singers. Production, arrangements, and a fair bit of songwriting by Van McCoy, with that good polished sound he was getting at the time. Includes their big first single, "So Much Love", plus "The Wings Of Love", "I'm Gonna Love You", "Make Love To Me", and "Let's Try It Over". LP, Vinyl record album

Faith Hope & CharityFaith Hope & Charity (RCA) ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... About March 20, 2018
Sweet 70s soul from Faith Hope & Charity – a trio who had recorded previously, but who really burst out here at the start of the disco years with some strong studio help from the great Van McCoy! The style of the record isn't really disco, but isn't far off either – as McCoy mixes lively rhythms and soaring strings with the vocal interplay of the trio – who come off much more as a well-formed soul group than some of the other trios of the generation – who were often just doing chorus vocals for the grooves! Singer Brenda Hillard really soars at times – with a lead that sets fire to the tracks nicely – and titles include the classic "Find a Way", plus "Just One Look", "Disco Dan", "Rescue Me", "Little Bit Of Love", "Don't Go Looking For Love", and "To Each His Own".

Good album by this female-male-female soul trio, with a lot of tracks written and arranged by Van McCoy, with the good New York soul sound that he was laying down with groups like this in the days before he hit the disco. Zulema's on vocals, and she also wrote a few tracks. Cuts include "God Bless The World", "I Worship The Very Ground You Walk On", "Heavy Love", "I Was There", and "We Can Change The World".

James GilstrapLove Talk ... LP
Roxbury, 1976. Very Good+ ... $2.99
The second album by Jim Gilstrap – a singer who did an awful lot of studio work for other folks during the 70s, and who scored a minor hit with his own "Swing Your Daddy", which was on the first album. This set's a bit more far-reaching, with arrangements by Gene Page that are kind of in a Barry White/Van McCoy expanded soul mode, which pushes Jim past the sweet soul of earlier days. Side one features the extended "Love Talk", a 13 minute number with lots of strings and grooves – not disco, but more of the baroque soul of Isaac Hayes or Barry White. Side two features three shorter cuts – two in a similar mode, "Never Stop Loving Me" and "Move Me", plus a great mellow soul remake of Todd Rundgren's "Hello It's Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Walter JacksonWelcome Home – The Many Moods of Walter Jackson ... LP
Okeh, 1965. Very Good- ... $8.99
A sublime mix of new tunes and re-imagined standards – and a set that takes Walter Jackson into even more sophisticated soul territory than before! The record is proof that the up and coming soul artists of the 60s had a key place alongside the more established mainstream acts on the other side of the fence – as Walter's working here with arranger Riley Hampton to re-cast a number of familiar tunes in his cool Iceman soul mode – changing the themes, rhythms, and inflections of the tracks for a more contemporary soul market – and also interspersing them with a few great new songs of his own! The approach is amazing – far better than even Jerry Butler or Chuck Jackson's work in a similar idiom – and the album features the sublime hit "Welcome Home", plus the Van McCoy tunes "Suddenly I'm All Alone", "Still At The Mercy Of Your Love", and "The Magic's Gone" – alongside versions of "Moon River", "Let It Be Me", "Imagination", and "My Funny Valentine".

Gladys Knight & The PipsOne & Only ... LP
Buddah, 1978. Very Good ... $0.99
The last Buddah Records album from Gladys Knight & The Pips – and a set that's a great summation of all the new territory the group hit with the label! The album's a mix of the mellower ballads that made Gladys one of the biggest female soul singers of the 70s, and some of the upbeat groovers that turned out to be a really great fit for the group's style – a mode that's not really disco, but which offers a strong mix of strings and rhythms. Tony Camillo and Van McCoy both bring some good production elements to the record – and titles include "Sorry Doesn't Always Make It Right", "Come Back & Finish What You Started", "It's A Better Than Good Time", "Saved By The Grace Of Your Love", "Butterfly", and "The One & Only".

Melba MooreMelba (Buddah) ... CD
Buddah/Sony (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... About March 20, 2018
Soaring soul from Melba Moore – a singer who really came into her own with this sweet 70s album! Melba always had a great voice, right from the start – but here, she's working with arrangements and production by Van McCoy – updating her sound with a bit of a clubby groove, in a way that helps Moore reach even greater heights than usual – and cross over to a big audience with ears for the growing disco sounds of the time! McCoy really knows how to pitch things right – and overall, the album's got a much deeper feel than some of his own disco work of the time – thanks, no doubt, to Melba's rich vocal approach. Titles include "So Many Mountains", "Good Love Makes Everything Alright", "The Way You Make Me Feel", "The Greatest Feeling", "Mighty Clouds Of Joy", and "Ain't No Love Lost". CD

Melba MooreThis Is It ... CD
Buddah/Sony (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... About March 20, 2018
A real stormer from Melba Moore – brilliantly-arranged dancefloor soul with beautiful lead vocals by Melba – on one of her best records of the 70s! Melba is straight-up amazing here, bringing genuine soul to feverish dancefloor gems and otherwise soaring numbers. This Is It was produced and arranged by Van McCoy, who was at the peak of his disco-era popularity at the time. We'd call this work here on Melba's record a creative peak for Van – even though if it didn't break Melba out in a big way commercially at the time. It includes the McCoy-penned should-be classic "This Is It", plus "Free", "Stay A While", a sweet cover of Curtis Mayfield's "Make Me Believe In You", "Lean On Me" (one of the greater showpieces for Melba's incredible voice), "Blood Red Roses", "Brand New" and more.

New CensationNew Censation ... CD
Pride/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $22.99
The only full album we've ever seen from this obscure 70s soul group – an ensemble who work here with plenty of help on production, arrangements, and songwriting from the great Van McCoy! Van's still a bit shy of his bigger disco fame here – and instead, he showcases that groundbreaking style that helped lots of east coast groups really hit a new groove in the years before Studio 54 – a mode that uses the fuller production styles that Van first worked up in the late 60s, but which also sets things to a more compressed rhythmic style that's pretty darn great! Lots of the work here recalls the style of groups over at RCA – like Choice Four or Main Ingredient – but these guys have a mixed male/female vocal style, which makes for a unique difference too. Tracks include "Let's Get Back Together", "I Was Made For You", "I'm So Glad", "Come Down To Earth", and "Everybody's Got A Story". CD

Presidents5-10-15-20-25-30 Years Of Love ... LP
Sussex, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $16.99
The early 70s sweet soul masterpiece by The Presidents – a great album that kicks off with a title track of that was a huuuuuuuge hit back in the day, but the full length album by the group just about never shows up! It's just beautiful stuff, with lots of tasty harmony soul tracks with production by Van McCoy, who also wrote and arranged the bulk of the material. The vocals are great and the strings soar pretty grandly, without compromising the group soul backdrop. Includes the big title hit, of course, plus "Gotta Keep Movin", "For You", "Sweet Magic", "This Is My Dream World", and "How Can You Say You're Leavin". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a light scratch on the front, but is nice overall.)

✨✧ Sharon RidleyStay A While With Me (Sussex pressing) ... LP
Sussex, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible album of deep deep soul! Recorded way before Sharon Ridley became a big club diva, this record mixes deep soul vocal stylings with some well produced Van McCoy arrangements, and backing by some crack New York players. The result is one of the best female vocal soul albums we can think of from the early 70s – and the kind of lost soul album that makes you keep tracking down rare wax! Includes the incredible cut "You Sold Me A One Way Ticket", which begins with an amazing intro, and has a hook so strong you could hang a parka on it – plus the cuts "Stay A While With Me", "I Found Him, I Loved Him, I Lost Him", and "When A Woman Falls In Love".

✨✧ Wayne ShorterJu Ju ... LP
Blue Note, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Genius, pure genius! Like all of Wayne Shorter's Blue Note sessions from the mid 60s, this album's a beautiful blend of hard bop ideas with a modern spiritual soulful consciousness – as important in its own way as Coltrane's work of the time – an incredible precursor for sounds from generations to come! Shorter's tenor solos are the main focus here, and he plays with creativity and imagination that you don't often hear on his later works – a sharp, soulful approach – but one that's already light years ahead of some of his Blue Note contemporaries – reaching for new ideas, but without any sense of effort – none of the overly-tense notes you'd get later, and instead just a marvelously fluid feel that really makes sense from the very first note – tremendous listening for both the lifetime jazz fan or the newcomer. McCoy Tyner plays piano, and Reggie Workman and Elvin Jones complete the group – and titles include "House Of Jade", "Deluge", "Mahjong", and "Yes Or No". LP, Vinyl record album

Maybe the best of their mid 70s records for RCA, in a similar style tp a lot of other East Coast groups from the time who had bigger hits and more mainstream popularity, even if few of their peers were truly as wonderful as the mighty Choice Four! On Top Of Clear is a close to perfect mix of uptempo cuts and ballads, with some of the sweetest lead and harmony vocals of the 70s! Van McCoy arranged and produced, and titles includes their single "Hey, What's That Dance You're Doing (Tom Moulton Mix)", "Two Different Worlds", "Mysterious Lady (Tom Moulton Mix)", "Beautiful Glow", "Come Down To Earth", and "Everybody's Got A Story". 4 bonus tracks on the FTG Soul & Funk Classics edition – "A Time For Celebration" (short version and long version), plus the great, longer 12" versions of "Two Different Worlds" and "Come Down To Earth".

✨✧ ZulemaJust Can't Say Goodbye – The Best Of The RCA Years ... CD
RCA/Soulmusic.com (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer overview of the RCA years of Zulema Cusseaux – a heck of a great singer, and one who worked with some excellent styles during her 70s years in soul! Zulema's got a slightly righteous approach to her music – a style schooled in the deep soul of her Floria roots, but focused on some tighter, groovier charts here – thanks to top-shelf work from studio talents like Bert DeCoteaux, Leon Pendarvis, and Van McCoy – all of whom bring a really special sort of magic to these sides! Zulema's got the kind of voice that might have faltered if given the wrong direction – but here, it really takes off – especially given the excellent choices in the collection, which nicely avoids some of the few mis-steps on Zulema's fuller albums. 19 tracks in all – including "Standing In The Back Row Of Your Heart", "I Love You Baby", "Pity For The Children", "You Had To Know", "Half Of Your Heart", "It Will Never Be The Same Again", "Why Did It Have To End This Way", and "Love To Last Forever".

David Ruffin at the height of his solo powers – working in that mature mix of soul and strings that made him one of the more sophisticated Motown talents of the time! The set's produced and arranged by Van McCoy – at a level that's maybe more Philly soul than the Detroit sounds of David's roots – and the singer's vocals open up beautifully as he hits a few upbeat groovers, and some especially nice midtempo tracks that really make the album shine! McCoy also wrote most of the songs, too – and titles include the classic "Walk Away From Love", one of Ruffin's sweetest numbers ever – plus the tracks "Who I Am", "Wild Honey", "Statue Of A Fool", "Heavy Love", "It Takes All Kind Of People To Make A World", "Love Can Be Hazardous To Your Health", and "The Finger Pointers".

A mindblowing album from Ahmad Jamal – a fantastic start to the 70s, and a set of music that shows just how far the pianist had come in just a few short years! The album's all acoustic, but has some of that spacious flow that Jamal would bring to his work on Fender Rhodes – with an approach that's even more open in terms of song structure than his earlier trio material – as if Jamal's choosing to omit more notes than he's including – but all with a quality that still keeps the music very full and rhythmic – pulsating with a special sort of energy that's neither Bill Evans, nor McCoy Tyner – but instead this really amazing sound that's all Ahmad's own. The trio features equally wonderful work from Jamil Nasser on bass and Frank Gant on drums – and titles include "The Awakening", "I Love Music", "Patterns", "Wave", and "Dolphin Dance". CD

Top shelf jazz trio from pianist Jon Davis – an artist who might look pretty laidback, sipping wine on the cover – but who serves up some great original material as well as key takes on some classics! Working with bassist Boris Kozlov and drummer Mark Ferber on this one, Davis earnestly sets out to pay homage to the 60s modern piano jazz genius of his five favorite players – and also manages to really show some of his own best work – a really impressive feat! The originals shine brightly – including "Happy Juice", "Slant Six", "As We Know", "Bred On Read" and "Mostly Minor" – and fit in seamlessly with the nods to classics by Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, McCoy Tyner and Keith Jarrett – including "The Two Lonely People", "Tones For Joans Bones", "Speak Like A Child", "Search For People" and "Rainbow".

Dragon (Sweden), 1983. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
Pianist Ake Johansson is an underground genius – a player who never got that much exposure on this side of the Atlantic, but who always grabs our ears right away! Don't mix this Ake up with Sven Ake Johansson – as this one is much more inside, and not an avant player at all – but he has this great way of leaping out on long lines that spin from his fingers with effortless ease – often very bold in both his sense of rhythm and improvisation, maybe vaguely in a McCoy Tyner mode – but definitely his own man overall! The energy of his trio is key to the strength of his records – and here, he gets superb collaborative work from Kjell Jansson on bass and Goran Levin – a tightly-matched unit who really shine in this live setting. Titles include "La Mesha", "Synkopen I Umea", "Kom Ner", "A Tribute To Bud", "Waitin", and "Igen". CD features bonus tracks – "The Song Is You", and "Some Other Spring". CD

The set cooks with that classic New Jersey soul jazz vibe that Savant's strongly carried forward after the demise of Muse Records – a kind of no-nonsense, back-to-basics groove that few labels get as right as this – plenty of room for Mike to stretch out on hard-riffing Hammond, as Alexander blows some beautiful notes, Bernstein comps along a fantastic rhythm, and Farnsworth proves once again he's one of the most rock-solid drummers around. Titles include "Blues For McCoy", "Rock With You", "Little Mary", "Bopsolete", "The Groover", "Sunday In New York", and "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me". CD

✨✧ VariousBridge Into The New Age – Funky Afro-Centric Spiritual Sounds From Jazz's Forgotten Decade ... CD
BGP (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautifully spiritual jazz from the post-Coltrane generation – a wealth of righteous grooves from the early 70s – brought together in one mighty collection! If you dig the work of Pharoah Sanders, Alice Coltrane, and other giants on Impulse Records, this is a great way to dig even deeper – and hear the way their late 60s legacy inspired other musicians to new heights in their own music – sounds that hit a new level of freedom in jazz, yet which are still filled with enough swing and soul to avoid some of the more avant modes of the free jazz scene! If that description sounds a bit obtuse, then just plug into the collection, and let the music do its thing – as it's got a very powerful vibe throughout – the kind of inspirational, socially conscious work that flourished best during the 70s – and which is finally getting its due all these many years later. The package is new territory for Ace/BGP, but they've done a great job as usual – picking key tracks from the era, and coming up with detailed notes on each of the long tracks. Titles include "Free Angela" by Bayete, "Bridge Into The New Age" by Azar Lawrence, "Tress Cun De O La" by Joe Henderson, "Ebony Queen" by McCoy Tyner, "Peace" by Idris Muhammad, "Mother Of The Future" by Norman Connors, "Brown Warm & Wintry" by Jack DeJohnette, "I've Known Rivers" by Gary Bartz, and "Fire" by Joe Henderson & Alice Coltrane.

Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite compilations of all time – a smoking batch of soulful jazz from the 60s, with a slight bit of funk and blues thrown in as well! The set's exactly what's promised in the title – jazz cuts, but with an ultra-cool mod vibe – the kind of soulful sounds that played big with the younger London crowd digging American music in the mid 60s – and also the kind of music you'd be likely to find blasting out of a backroom jukebox on the west side of Chicago! There's loads of rare single mixes of LP tracks on the set, and a number of smoking 45s from artists you might know better from more mainstream work – really hitting hard here, alongside a few special numbers from the indie underground too. Tracks are cool enough for old school hipsters – but appealing enough to bring in a new listener too – and as proof of that, we've given this one away for many years as a Christmas present. The collection features 25 tracks in all – non-stop pleasure throughout – with titles that include "Soul Shoutin" by Shirley Scott, "Tengo Tango" by Cannonball Adderley Sextet, "Whip It On Me" by Billy Hawks, "Yeh Yeh" by Mongo Santamaria, "Black Talk" by Charles Earland, "I'm Ready" by Otis Spann, "Mama Rufus" by Merced Blue Notes, "Theme From NYPD" by Johnny Hammond, "Step Out & Get It" by The Nomos, "Why Don't You Do Right" by Mark Murphy, "Collard Greens" by Freddie McCoy, "Theme From The Carpetbaggers" by Jack McDuff, "Filthy McNasty" by Eddie Jefferson, "Evil Ways" by Cal Tjader, "Kenny's Theme" by Kenny Burrell, and "Games" by Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones.

Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
We only know Reggie Moore from a handful of records – but he's a hell of a pianist, and one who definitely earns the furioso name in the title! There's a complicated mix of ideas going on in Reggie's head here – sometimes the soaring modalism of the McCoy Tyner generation, sometimes the more subtle approach of the Bill Evans scene, and at other points a more gutbucket style that has Moore exploding in ways that should have made him a stronger contender for the more soulful side of his contemporaries. Yet it's the balance between all these peaks that make Moore so unique, and the album such a charmer – as Reggie works here on acoustic piano throughout, with Hank Haynie on bass and Chip Lyles on drums. Titles include "Little Tracy", "Furioso", "Collage", "Consider Her Ways", and "Where Is The Love". CD

A fantastic tribute to the studio genius of the great Bert Berns – maybe one of the most rough-edged producers on the New York scene at the time – as you can probably guess from his image on the cover! The set's pretty strong on Berns' soul output, but also includes some of his key rock productions too – and as always with his music, there's a nice link between both styles – with rough edges on the soul tracks, and soulful currents on the rock numbers! Titles include "Tell Him" by The Exciters, "Piece Of My Heart" by Erma Franklin, "A Little Bit Of Soap" by The Jarmels, "I Want Candy" by The Strangeloves, "Are You Lonely For Me Baby" by Freddie Scott, "Hang On Sloop" by The McCoys, "Chick A Boom" by Van Morrison, "Mr Success" by Bobby Harris, "Am I Grooving You" by Freddie Scott, "Heart Be Still" by Lorraine Ellison, "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love" by Solomon Burke, "You May Be Holding My Baby" by The Pussycats, "Show Me Your Monkey" by Kenny Hamber, and "Baby Please Don't Go" by Them.
