Jr Walker & The All StarsGotta Hold On To This Feeling ... LP
SOUL, 1970. Very Good ... $9.99
An excellent album by Jr Walker and group – one that has them moving past the honking sax combo format of other albums, into a more expanded Motown-esque soul approach that mixes vocals and tenor into a swirling blend of grooves! Arrangements are by Paul Riser and Willie Shorter, and Johnny Bristol gave the album some of that sparkling production he could whip up on his best days. Includes the hit "What Does It Take (To Win Your Love)", plus "San Ho Zay", "Hot Cha", "Sweet Soul", "Ame Cherie", and "Cleo's Mood". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a cutout notch.)

VariousHi Records Rarities Vol 2 – Funky & Groovy – Harlem Shuffle ... CD
Hi Records/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $18.99
The funky side of Hi Records – music that goes way past the mellow burning soul you might normally know from the label – served up here in a wealth of rare singles from the Memphis powerhouse of soul! Hi had a lot more going on in the 70s than just the big hits and classic albums that most people know – and the cuts here show a version of the label that was working every bit as hard as Stax to come up with fresh grooves and unusual ways of mixing southern soul and funk for the new generation! The set list is huge – 25 numbers, many of which should be pretty fresh to your ears – and titles include "Sweet Thing" by Willie Walker, "Slidin In & Out" by The Memphians, "Got To Find My Baby" by James Gadson, "Fried Chicken" by Rufus Thomas, "Everybody Got Soul" by Gene Miller, "Disco Hustle" by Heinsight, "If You Can't Please Your Woman" by Tuxedo, "Love Map" by Lyndon, "You Made Me What I Am" by Erma Coffee, and "Patricia" by George Jackson.

VariousTwin Cities Funk & Soul – Lost R&B Grooves From Minneapolis/St Paul 1964 to 1979 ... CD
Secret Stash, 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
Rare soul from Minneapolis – a surprisingly great source for grooves in the years before Prince and Morris Day! Turns out, the Twin Cities were already funky, way before the Purple One came into being – as you'll hear in this wealth of rare singles from the late 60s on up through the 70s – all of them mighty darn soulful, and most of them pretty dang funky as well! The wealth of work is really surprisingly – with strong echoes of styles going on in the Chicago and Detroit scenes at the time, but maybe even more surprising, given that Minneapolis/St Paul didn't have nearly the same amount of resources. The package is easily one of the best ever done by the Secret Stash label – a set that really ups the level of their reissues – with a motherlode of killer cuts that include "Love Me Leave Me" by The Valdons, "Sweet Smell Of Perfume" by Maurice McKinnies & The Champions, "Work Your Flapper (part 1)" by Jackie Harris & The Champions, "She's A Whole Lot's A Woman" by Mojo & His Chi 4, "I Ain't Gonna Cheat On You No More" by Willie Walker, "Save Me" by Wanda Davis, "Saxophone Disco" by Morris Wilson, "Honey From The Bee" by Willie & The Bumblebees, "The Max" by Prophets Of Peace, "Get Up" by The Lewis Connection, and "Rusty McDusty" by Morris Wilson.

✨✧ VariousPawn Stars – The Pawn Label Story ... CD
Cream/Hi Records/Demon (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lost source of southern soul – and even better, the sister label of the legendary Memphis powerhouse Hi Records! Pawn was a short-lived offshoot of Hi that ran during the mid 70s – and it was a company that released some great work that had a slightly rougher sound than the Hi hits of the time, kind of a return to the sweet Memphis grooves that first got Hi going in the soul charts at the start of the decade, crafted in a setting that offered a little more freedom than the star-studded bigger label. The set's got a total of 22 tracks in all – every single released on the label, and nearly every one of them a sweet southern tune with a style that's similar to the Willie Mitchell produced tracks over at the bigger label. Titles include "Slidin In & Out" and "Who Will The Next Fool Be" by The Memphians; "It's Time You Made Up Your Mind", "Baby You're Ready", "Too Much Of Nothin", and "Gotta Have Money" by Willie Clayton; "Love Junkie" and "Be Good To The One" by Jimmy Mack; "He's Got It" and "How Can I Believe In You" by Known Facts; "I Love Her" and "Sweet Thing" by Willie Walker; and "Laugh" and "California Dreamin" by The Jacksonians.
