Screamin' Jay Hawkins

What That Is
Philips/Third Man, 1969. (reissue)
LP ... About November 5, 2020
Screamin Jay Hawkins caught at the height of one of his first "revival" periods – the late 60s, when he was opening for the Rolling Stones, and popping out of the same sort of coffin pictured on the cover! The style of the record takes the older R&B mode of Hawkins' 50s singles ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stag O Lee (Germany),
LP ... About November 13, 2020
... LP, Vinyl record album
Canyon/Alive, 1970. (reissue)
LP ... On November 13, 2020
One of the earliest albums ever from Swamp Dogg – and one of the best as well! The set was cut down at Capricorn Studios in Macon, and has a wicked blend of southern funk and deep soul that Swamp never hit this well ever again – a quality that almost makes us think the album was more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Aretha Franklin

ARETHA
Atlantic, Late 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s/Early 2010s. 2LP Gatefold

A collection of rare material and alternate tracks! LP, Vinyl record album

Mary J Blige

My Life
Uptown/MCA, 1994. 2LP (reissue)
LP ... On November 20, 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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Just Sunshine/Tidal Waves, 1974. (reissue)
LP ... On November 27, 2020
Genius work from Norman Feels – a virtually unknown mellow soul singer from the 70s, but one who should have been huge! Norman sings with this sweetly crackling style that we loved the moment we first heard it – a sound that's somewhere in territory covered by Marvin Gaye or Leroy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie Wilson with Count Basie

Manufacturers Of Soul (180 gram pressing)
Brunswick/Demon (UK), 1968. (reissue)
LP ... About November 27, 2020
A really wonderful collaboration between two very unlikely partners – and a great album that really stands out as some of the best work from both artists in the 60s! Count Basie's group gets hard and soulful on the record – and even a little funky on the best cuts – and Jackie ... LP, Vinyl record album
Invictus/Demon (UK), 1972. (reissue)
LP ... About November 27, 2020
The sublime second album from The Glass House – even rarer than the group's first, and an overlooked gem in the Holland-Dozier-Holland treasure box of the early 70s! There's a sweetness here that you don't always find on other H-D-H projects – a touch of harmony soul that really makes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ohio Players

Ecstasy
Westbound/Ace (UK), 1973. (reissue)
LP ... About November 27, 2020
Fuzzy funk from some of the all-time greats – one of the key Westbound Records classics from the mighty Ohio Players! This album's got the Players working at their all-time best – a bit jazzy, with a more sophisticated undercurrent than some of their contemporaries – a righteous ... LP, Vinyl record album

Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1977. (reissue)
LP ... On November 27, 2020
A spectacular soul album from Holland – but one that's got a much more American groove than some other overseas records of its type! The cuts all feel as if they could have been lifted from indie sides of the east coast scene of the early 70s – and Billy shines beautifully both on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Funkadelic

Funkadelic
Westbound/Ace (UK), 1970. (reissue)
LP ... About December 18, 2020
One of the darkest records to ever come out of the Detroit soul scene! As you might guess from the title, the album is Funkadelic's first – and it's a swirling mass of psychedelic guitars, echoey drums, and bass-heavy riffing, all topped off by the band's harmony vocals, which sound like a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Polydor, 1971. (reissue)
LP ... About December 31, 2020
An amazing double-live album that's to concert records what James Brown's Payback was to the sound of studio funk! Like that classic, this is a double-length 2LP set that really has James and the JBs stretching out and doing their thing – working here in a setting that's supposed to be the ... LP, Vinyl record album

RCA/Abkco, Early 60s. 2LP
LP ... On January 22, 2021
A brilliant overview of Sam Cooke's best secular soul from the 60s – a well-done collection that contains tracks from Sam's early sessions for RCA, and which presents the material with a full set of notes by Peter Guaralnick, and complete details on all the sessions! Some of the tunes on ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA/Abkco, 1964. (reissue)
LP ... On January 22, 2021
A classic live album – one of the first in soul music, and a beautiful set of smooth soul tunes from Sam Cooke! Sam's singing at the high-end nitespot The Copacabana – and like many live sets performed there, this one's tailored a bit to the classy crowd at the show – but that ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA/Abkco, 1964. (reissue)
LP ... On January 22, 2021
Good news galore from the great Sam Cooke – maybe THE album in which he fully shows off his unique contribution to soul music in the 60s – that mix of raw and sweet, easygoing and progressive – a mode that had a huge impact at the time, and went onto become a strong influence for ... LP, Vinyl record album

Linda Jones

Let It Be Me
Turbo/Pleasure For Music, Early 70s. (reissue)
LP ... About February 15, 2021

A collection of rare work that Dr John did for the Crazy Cajun label! LP, Vinyl record album
Demon (UK), Mid 60s.
LP ... About October 23, 2020 (delayed)
A great little collection that definitely gets at the mojo of Dr John – the legendary New Orleans soul singer who really sprang forth in the mainstream at the end of the 60s! Much of this set captures the doctor before that time – early tracks from both New Orleans and LA, all of which ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny Claiborne & The Armed Gang

Kenny Claiborne & The Armed Gang
Espacial (Spain), 1983. (reissue)

... LP, Vinyl record album

JR Bailey

Just Me & You
MAM/Be With (UK), 1974. (reissue)
LP ... About September 18, 2020 (delayed)
A really sublime rare groover from JR Bailey – vocalist in the Cadillacs back in their doo wop years, but a heck of a great 70s mellow soul artist in this obscure little set! JR wrote and co-produced all the tunes on the set – in a mode that steps along beautifully with a subtle groove ... LP, Vinyl record album
Westbound/Be With (UK), 1976. (reissue)
LP ... About September 18, 2020 (delayed)
A funky tribute to all the "Super Groupies" who were helping out the 70s music scene – maybe the closest thing that Junie Morrisson every came to a tribute album – and a set that's got all the same wonderful complexity of his other solo albums on Westbound! As with those ... LP, Vinyl record album
Spring/BGP (UK),

LP ... On November 13, 2020
... LP, Vinyl record album

Nina Simone

Pastel Blues
Philips/Universal, 1965. (reissue)
LP ... On November 13, 2020
Wonderful stuff from Nina Simone – working here still with one foot in the jazzier style of early days, but with haunting elements of the later progressive style to come! The "pastel" in the title shouldn't imply any sort of softness on Nina's part, because if anything, she's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nina Simone

I Put A Spell On You
Philips/Universal, 1964. (reissue)
LP ... On November 13, 2020
Captivating work by Nina – working here in that unique crossover style she was using in the mid 60s – a blend of jazz and soul arrangements that were perfect for her intimate folksy style. The album's one of her first few for Philips, and it really has her opening things up a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lyman/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1979. (reissue)
LP ... About October 10, 2020 (delayed)
A killer little set from funky organist Lyman Woodard – an old bandmate of Dennis Coffey, and one of the standout stalwarts of the 70s Detroit jazz funk scene!

Z Records (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. 2LP
LP ... About October 1, 2020 (delayed)
... LP, Vinyl record album
Mango/Soul Makossa (France), 1980. (reissue)
LP ... About September 15, 2020 (delayed)
Not "Soul Makossa", but also not a bad album of afro funk featuring Manu Dibango's usual squealing soprano sax, plus Fender Rhodes and vibes. Recorded in Jamaica, with a bit of a Carribean feel, and the tracks "Frozen Soul", "Doctor Bird", and "Full Up". LP, Vinyl record album
Wagram (France),
