What Color Is Love
Cadet/Verve, 1973. (reissue)
LP ... On September 14, 2018
Possibly the greatest album ever by the legendary Chicago soul singer Terry Callier! Terry's rich mellow voice is mixed with superb arrangements from the Cadet studio team, with Charles Stepney at the head, and the result is completely sublime. The songs are longer than on earlier albums – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tamla, 1979. (reissue)
LP ... On September 7, 2018
Very high concept work from Stevie Wonder! The record is, in fact, about the "secret life of plants" – partially used as a soundtrack for a film of the same name, but also acting as kind of a storybook in itself! Stevie's exploring a wide range of plant life and plant themes on ... LP, Vinyl record album
99 Records/Fire (UK), 1983. (reissue)
LP ... On July 24, 2018
The only real full length album that ESG ever cut back in the day – and a great little set that's filled with tightly-snapping funk all the way through! The vibe here is one that strongly continues the groove laid down by the first ESG EP – a hypnotic blend of simple basslines, vocal ... LP, Vinyl record album
Reflections
ALA/Modern Harmonic, 1976. (reissue)
LP ... On August 17, 2018
A fantastic album of bad-rapping spoken material from Iceberg Slim – one of the hippest 70s sets of its type, and a great audio tribute to the man who wrote the books Pimp, Trick Baby, and Mama Black Widow! Slim reads his own work in a very laidback style, but one with a slinky, pimpish feel ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists/Universal (Japan), 1972.
CD ... About September 19, 2018
A fairly loose set of diverse material from the tumultuous duo, from the tender, lovely chorus backed and string accented grit of the title track to more stripped down, kinda country funk accented number. Includes "Annie Had A Baby", "Don't Believe Her", "Early One ... CD
United Artists/Universal (Japan), 1971.
CD ... About September 19, 2018
The Ike & Tina Turner Revue shakes the foundation at Carnegie Hall on April Fools Day, 1971! There's a good reason for there being so many live albums by Ike & Tina – it's because they're damn great on stage – and this NYC set is a strong showcase for The Ikettes and The Kings ... CD

... CD
United Artists/Universal (Japan), 1971.
CD ... About September 19, 2018
One of their last together, and a record that's very much in the hit Ike & Tina style! Lots of hard heavy guitar, pounding drums, and raw heavy soul vocals from Tina. Tracks include "Baby", "Sweet Flustrations", "I Love What You Do To Me", "Tell The ... CD
Liberty/Universal (Japan), 1971.
CD ... About September 19, 2018
A nicely pivotal album by Ike & Tina Turner – one that has them still retaining some of the earthiness of earlier years, yet also honing their groove for the crossover audience that was digging them big at the end of the 60s! The best results of this shift is the increasing funk ... CD
Liberty/Universal (Japan), Late 60s.
CD ... About September 19, 2018
A classic mix of rock and soul from the late 60s Ike & Tina Turner team – with cuts that include "Contact High", "I Want To Take You Higher", "Honky Tonk Woman", "Evil Man", "Doin It", "Young & Dumb", and "Come ... CD
Capitol/Universal (Japan), Late 60s.
CD ... About September 19, 2018
Hard heavy stuff from Ike & Tina – very much in their earlier style, with perhaps a bit of bluesiness thrown into the mix. Tina's on vocals on most cuts – and titles include "I Can't Believe", "Get It Get It", "Strange", "My Babe", "Roost ... CD
Blue Thumb/Universal (Japan), Early 70s.
CD ... About September 19, 2018
A pretty sweet little album from Ike & Tina Turner – recording during a period when it seemed like they had contracts with just about every soul label on the market! This one's definitely got that hip "play it for the Fillmore crowd" sound that you'd expect from Blue Thumb ... CD
Minit/Universal (Japan), Late 60s.
CD ... About September 19, 2018
... CD
A&M/Universal (Japan), 1966.
CD ... About September 19, 2018
A legendary pairing of two key 60s pop talents – the soulful sounds of Ike & Tina Turner, and the soaring production styles of Phil Spector! The album's quite different than some of the grittier Turner projects of the time – lots of full orchestrations and strings, mixed with the ... CD

CD ... About July 25, 2018
From the look of the cover, and Leslie's silly expression on the front, this album should be a bad one – but it ends up being a surprisingly great batch of well-produced modern soul tunes. The record's one of a few great ones that Elektra snuck onto the market during the early 80s – ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1975.
CD ... About July 25, 2018
A great record from the mid 70s – one that has Marlena Shaw further developing her style as a sophisticated soul diva with a sharp modern edge! Although already great in the 60s, Shaw emerges here as an all-adult, all-woman singer – dealing with issues that never would have gotten ... CD
Tamla, 1970. (reissue)

A great little set from Leroy Hutson – proof that he was still going strong through all his years at Curtom! For years we passed this one by, wrongly thinking "it's late, it can't be that good" – but the album's a real winner, with a blend of clubby uptempo cuts and some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Killer early soul by Leroy Hutson – and a record that really shows him opening up as a vocalist and songwriter!

An obscure disco trio from the Miami soul scene of the 70s – working here in a way that's maybe like a deep soul take on some of the Philly female trios of the same time!

Upward Bound
Midwest International/Everland (Austria), 1980. (reissue)

The only full album from Starvue – a late 70s Chicago group who were part of that overlooked scene in the city once the bigger labels had moved on! In truth, if Starvue were working on the coasts, they could have been huge – as they've got a really sharp, focused approach to ensemble ... LP, Vinyl record album
Who Is She
United Artists/Universal (Japan), 1978.
CD ... About June 13, 2018 (delayed)

Can't Hide Love
Blue Note (Japan), 1976.
CD ... About July 25, 2018
Sweet soul from Carmen McRae – a great 70s album for Blue Note, and one that has the classic singer moving into some very groovy material! The feel here is much more soul than jazz – at least the jazz of the torchy style from Carmen's roots – but as you'd guess from McRae, the ... CD
Funky Snakefoot
Blue Note (Japan), 1974.
CD ... About July 25, 2018
A really unique album from funky drummer Alphonse Mouzon – a set that has him putting away some of the guitars used heavily on other Blue Note records, in exchange for a keyboard-heavy groove that almost sounds a bit like Gene Harris a the time! In addition to drums, Alphonse solos a fair ... CD
Little Brown Eyed Soul
Key Loc/Big Crown, Late 60s.
CD ... On July 27, 2018
One of our favorites ever cut by Tex-Mex soulsters Sunny & The Sunliners – largely because it's got some really nice funk tracks! The album features a set of all English language tracks – with Sunny Ozuna singing in his best sweet soul style on the ballad tracks, and hitting a raw ... CD
Sextet
Factory/Mute, 1982. (reissue)

Fantastic funky flute from Ronald Snijders – a European player of the 70s, but one whose work really reminds us a lot of the soulful groove of Bobbi Humphrey at the same time! Like Bobbi, Ronald often has this clear, clean tone on his instrument – as spacious as it is soulful, which ... LP, Vinyl record album
