Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1972. (reissue)
LP ... On August 29, 2020
Well, we don't know if we'd say that Al Green is blues – because he's still singing in his wonderfully sweet Memphis soul style – but this album definitely has a sound that gives a nod to the classic bluesy soul that inspired Al's work in the years before he put things together with his ...

Captain Sky

Pop Goes The Captain
AVI/Past Due, 1979. (reissue)
LP ... About September 1, 2020
Captain Sky is sort of a bargain-basement version of Bootsy Collins. He plays lots of heavy bass riffs, lays down long funk tracks with wicked vocals and trippy space funk lyrics – but somehow he's never worthy of a ride on the mothership. The record's not a bad one, and it's an interesting ... LP, Vinyl record album
AVI/Past Due, 1978. (reissue)
LP ... About September 1, 2020
Although Captain Sky was pretty much just a proto-P-Funk wannabe on most of his records, this one's actually a pretty decent batch of grooves – and it includes the excellent "Super Sporm", a killer extended track with a great conga break, and a tight old school sample sound! Also ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ohio Players

Pleasure
Westbound (UK), 1972. (reissue)
LP ... About August 28, 2020
A true pleasure indeed – easily one of the greatest records ever by the Ohio Players, and a perfect summation of all things great in their groove! The album's a landmark effort – even for the heady days of the early 70s – as the Players manage to bring together a fair bit of jazz ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cadet/Lilith (Italy), 1971. (reissue)
LP ... About September 18, 2020
Heavy duty fuzzy funk – and a landmark album from one of the most Hendrix-inspired groups of the early 70s! The style here is guitar funk with plenty of rock thrown in – all really fuzzed-up in production, and often a bit distorted – so that the group are kind of a lost link ... LP, Vinyl record album

Warriors (Incognito)

Behind The Mask
Expansion (UK), 1982. (reissue)
LP ... About July 15, 2020
A great early 80s set from Bluey & the Incognito crew – conceived as the follow up to their benchmark Jazzfunk LP – but this tighter, more fusion inspired set ultimately moved into a sound that was just divergent enough of the established Incognito style that they issued it as The ... LP, Vinyl record album
CTI/Pleasure For Music (UK), 1968. (reissue)
LP ... About August 15, 2020
Fantastic work from Tamiko Jones – one of the more enigmatic soul singers of her generation!

LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie Terrell & The Soul Expedition

Soul Expedition
Lefevre Sound/P-Vine (Japan), 1971. (reissue)
LP ... About October 2, 2020
This one's billed as "the rarest funk album of all time" – but even if it wasn't, we'd still love it to death because it's so darn great! Freddie hails from the Georgia scene of the late 60s – and he's got a slow-burning approach to his music that mixes in a good dose of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Heaven Sent & Ecstasy

Greatest Love Story
Jamieko/P-Vine (Japan), 1980. (reissue)
LP ... About October 2, 2020
Heavenly soul from the start of the 80s – a sweet little indie set that's done as a tribute to Minnie Riperton and Kenneth Armstrong! The overall format doesn't have that much to do with Minnie, but the record's still pretty darn great – and the style is a mix of modern, mellow, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mary J Blige

My Life
Uptown/MCA, 1994. (reissue)
LP ... On September 11, 2020
Mary J's second LP, and every bit as fine as the first. She's still working with Puffy and Chucky Thompson here, staying true to the commercial R&B formula that has been Blige's mainstay over her entire career. 13 tracks of the fine Brooklyn soul sound, plus a couple of interludes, including ...

Sir Joe Quarterman & Free Soul

Sir Joe Quarterman & Free Soul
GSF/Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. (reissue)
LP ... About August 29, 2020
An undisputed funk classic – even back in the days before anyone ever said the phrase "funk classic"! This album must have been deleted the day it came out – because even though it's attained legendary proportions with groovers worldwide, it's always been hard to find – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rounder/Craft, 2006.
LP ... On July 31, 2020
A surprisingly nice set from Irma Thomas – recorded in a spare and stripped down way, but without any of the "too earnest" cliches that can sometimes mar other recent albums by classic soul stars! The feel here is almost gentle and easygoing at times – still in the powerful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stax, 1969. (reissue)
LP ... On August 29, 2020
The Beatles had Abbey Road – and Booker T & The MGs had McLemore Ave, the main street running outside the Stax studios, and a fitting title for the album that has them playing tunes from The Beatles' incredible Abbey Road album. If you've ever thought that Abbey Road was a soft-rock ... LP, Vinyl record album

Don Bryant

You Make Me Feel
Fat Possum, 2020.
LP ... About July 3, 2020 (delayed)
The mighty Don Bryant never got the chance to record much back in the day – save for one fantastic album and a set of singles on Hi Records – but he's really returned to form lately, and gets the chance to show the world his Memphis soul pedigree in all of its glory!

LP ... On July 17, 2020
A classic batch of Motown duets from Marvin Gaye and some of his best female co-stars – with a few contributions a piece from Mary Wells, Kim Weston, and Tammi Terrell! Although other artists explored the male/female duet mode back in the 60s, few did it as well as Marvin – thanks in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rivage

Sittin On It
Tempus/Athens Of The North (UK), 1981. (reissue)
LP ... About July 25, 2020
An obscure but excellent album by Rivage – recorded in the early 80s in Florida, but with a sound that's pure mid 70s Earth, Wind, & Fire! Tracks move between spacey soul and tight ensemble funk, and vocals are done in a harmony style on most tracks. The best cuts are the mellow ones, ... LP, Vinyl record album

P-Vine (Japan), 1978. (reissue)
LP ... About August 5, 2020
A rare bit of soul from the Hawaii scene of the 70s – and like some of the best of the genre, a record that's definitely got some influence from the warm Cali soul scene of the time, but which also brings plenty of its own style to play! The guitar lines have a nicely chromatic vibe, maybe ... LP, Vinyl record album
Arista/Demon (UK), 1980.
LP ... About August 7, 2020
Great later grooves from Average White Band – a real gem from the point when the group was settling nicely into a mellow soul vein!

A killer album of funk and soul! The group's got a nice warm sound, with lots of Fender Rhodes and mellow basslines – and they move between sweet ballad soul and sinister funky instrumentals!

Captain Sky is sort of a bargain-basement version of Bootsy Collins.
