✨✧ Bobby WomackAcross 110th Street ... LP
United Artists, 1972. Very Good+ ... $29.99
One of the best blacksploitation soundtracks of the early 70's – not only for the great title cut by Bobby Womack, "Across 110th Street", but for the excellent hard-hitting instrumentals by J.J. Johnson, which are perfectly in the groove of the blacksploitation generation! Lots of wah-wah guitar, funky keys, and tight riffing by the band – especially on the cuts "Harlem Clavinette", "Hang On in There", and "Harlem Love Theme". Also features "Do It Right" and another vocal version of "Hang On In There", both by Bobby. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bobby WomackCommunication ... LP
United Artists, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
One of the all-time great ones from Bobby Womack – and a set that definitely helped push the singer into the mainstream of soul in the 70s! Bobby says thanks to Sly Stone on the back of this album – and it's clear that he's gotten a good dose of Sly's funky soul to kick things up a bit from earlier records! Part of the record was cut in Muscle Shoals, and it's still got that rootsy southern style of Bobby's late 60s work – but there's also a tighter LA funk sound in the mix, with lots of electric guitar solos and funky electric keyboards – a blend that really helps Womack stretch past his southern soul roots, and find an even broader audience, yet without sounding commercial or cliched at all. Titles include the righteous "Communication", plus "That's The Way I Feel About 'Cha", "Everything Is Beautiful", "Come L'Amore", and a monologue-heavy version of "Close To You" that's a bit on the Isaac Hayes tip. And hey, Pam Grier's on backup vocals, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby WomackFly Me To The Moon (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Minit/Premium Cool, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 25.99
A completely sublime first album from the great Bobby Womack – and a set that already has him sounding quite different than any of his contemporaries! Bobby's got a southern soul vibe at the start, to be sure – but he also works things in this amazingly fresh way, too – a bit of Cali sun mixed in with his well-penned tunes – and a mature, confident approach that really pushes male soul in a new direction. The vocals are incredible – fresh, and raw, and with that warm little rasp that made him stand out so strongly from other singers of the late 60s – Bobby's personal touch that still always sends us after all these years. The arrangements are superb, with a mix of small-combo organ/guitar southern grooving, and just the right touches of larger orchestrations to push the whole thing over the top. The songwriting is superb – with some of Bobby's best early tracks, like "What Is This", "I'm In Love", and "Baby! You Oughta Think it Over". Even the non-original tracks are wonderful – like the track "Fly Me to the Moon", which Bobby manages to completely make his own! LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby WomackMy Prescription ... LP
Minit, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $19.99
Completely wonderful work from Bobby Womack – one of those records that shows why Bobby's so different from other singers, right from the start! Womack's guitar lines are beautiful – and echo a lot of country styles alongside his raspy vocals – but hardly at a level that's cliched country soul at all, given the overall freshness of the arrangements! Bobby handled the charts, along with Glen Spreen and Mike Leech – and the great Chips Moman produced, and gives the set a sparkling southern style overall – but one that also seems to point strongly towards Womack's wider reach towards the west coast. Womack's songwriting is already great, but even the tracks here by other writers still get a treatment that really make them his own – including Bobby's classic take on "Everyone's Gone To The Moon". Original tracks include "How I Miss You Baby", "More Than I Can Stand", "It's Gonna Rain", "Tried & Convicted", and "Thank You". LP, Vinyl record album

United Artists, 1972. Very Good+ ... $16.99
Killer 70s work from Bobby Womack – reinventing himself here in a great style that keeps all the warmth and soulfulness of his Minit recordings, and gives it a healthy dose of 70s soul production – creating a sweet new groove that pushed Womack into a huge new audience at the time! Bobby strikes a perfect balance here – keeping things hip, but also tightening things up too – yet never by getting too smooth or too commercial. The result is a great batch of tracks that includes classics like "I Can Understand It", "Woman's Gotta Have it", and "Harry Hippy" – as well as a nice version of "Sweet Caroline", and Jimmy Lewis' great "Got To Get You Back".

Bobby WomackWomack Live (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Liberty/Premium Cool, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 25.99
A great early live album from Bobby Womack – one that not only shows off his talents in a setting that's even rawer than his studio records, but which also shows a good deal of his personality as well! The set's got a great small combo feel, and is relatively spontaneous too – with Bobby singing and talking his way through the performance with effortless ease, really making all songs his own, and inspiring both the band and the crowd with his presence. The guitar work is especially nice – and things often move at a slightly faster clip than on the studio versions – and titles include great Womack originals, like "The Preacher", "More Than I Can Stand", "Oh How I Miss You Baby" – plus soulful covers of "Everybody's Talkin", "Somethin", and "California Dreamin".

✨✧ Gabor Szabo & Bobby WomackHigh Contrast ... CD
Verve/Higher Plane, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent early 70s work from jazz guitarist Gabor Szabo – a super-dope album that's one of the best he ever recorded! Part of the success of the record has to do with the presence of Bobby Womack – normally a soul singer, but also a heck of a guitarist, playing here alongside Szabo in a very cool twin-guitar style that makes for an amazing sound. Both players have a hollow, warm tone to their work on the strings – stepping around a blend of soul and jazz that's nicely tripped out in a 70s Blue Thumb style. The highlight of the record is the massive track "Breezin", a sample track used by more than one group over the years – but the whole record's amazing, filled with slow, trippy grooves that were years ahead of their time! Titles include "I Remember When", "Just A Little Communication", "Amazon", "Fingers", and "Azure Blue". CD

✨✧ Bobby WomackLookin' For A Love Again ... LP
United Artists, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stone classic from Bobby Womack – one of those records that has all his best elements firmly in place, put forward at a level that's sophisticated and polished, yet never too commercial at all! Bobby's voices are still incredible – that raspy, personal feel that's rooted in country and deeper soul modes, yet ready to take on the mainstream as well – and the tracks also still feature lots of his wonderful guitar work, which inflects the music with these deeper feelings that really holds strong – and definitely lives up to the initial charm of Womack's first few records on Minit. Most of the set was recorded at Muscle Shoals, but as a place where Womack was travelling from LA – a fact that definitely shows in the mix of rootsy elements and tighter construction – yet still handled here without any of the cliches that so many other artists might hit when recording on that scene. Titles include the killer funky stepper "You're Welcome Stop On By", which has been sampled and covered many times over the years – plus "I Don't Wanna Be Hurt By Ya Love Again", "Let It Hang Out", "Lookin For A Love", "Doing It My Way", and "Don't Let Me Down".

Beverly Glen, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first of Bobby's highly successful Poet albums from the early 80s – wonderfully done albums that showed the world that he was still very much on top of his game at the time! The sound here is great – still with that older Womack rasp and warmth, but also done in a slightly smoother mode that grooves things up with some modern soul touches, yet never loses Bobby's charm! Tunefully, the record is one of his best in years – with some wonderful mellow soul groovers that never fail to delight – all produced with a warm California sound, and featuring some great backing vocals by The Waters and a host of other Womacks. Titles include "So Many Sides Of You", "Lay Your Lovin On Me", "Secrets", "Just My Imagination", "Games", "If You Think You're Lonely Now", and "Where Do We Go From Here". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Valentinos with Bobby WomackLookin For A Love – The Complete SAR Recordings ... CD
SAR/Abkco, Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A stunning early chapter in the rich career of soul singer Bobby Womack – his early work with his brothers in both the Valentinos secular group, and the Womack Brothers gospel combo! Bobby's already a hell of a singer at this point in his career – and these recordings might well be enough, even if he didn't go onto record so many other great songs in his solo years – and like Womack's early soul work, there's a wonderful blend of raspy and smooth going on here – a deep soul vibe in the lead lyrics, but some warm harmonies alongside that sound totally great! And there's plenty of gospel influence in the soul tracks, and secular leanings in the gospel ones – so that the 23 track set is beautifully unified, and stands as the first to really represent this overlooked side of the Womack family genius. The collection features 7 previously unreleased tracks – and titles include "Lookin For A Love", "I've Got A Girl", "Baby Lots Of Luck", "Don't Go Away", "Rock In The Cradle Of Love", "Somebody's Wrong", "Sugar Dumpling", "Bitter Dreams", "Shakin This Way & That", and "It's All Over Now".

Womack & WomackLove Wars/Radio MUSC Man (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Elektra/Robinsongs (UK), 1983/1985. New Copy 2 CDs ... $9.99
A double dose of Womack & Womack – two Elektra albums back to back! Love Wars is a stone classic from Cecil and Linda Womack – and an album that may well have given the duo their biggest hit in the title track! Cecil is the brother of Bobby Womack – a former member of his Valentinos group too – and Linda is the daughter of Sam Cooke – so you can bet that both singers have plenty of chops to make the album come off right, even as they find a really special space of their own! At some level, the music echoes Bobby's blend of deeper soul vocals with warmer backings – but at others, the duo take off from an Ashford & Simpson mode to find their own sort of special way of coming together, with elements that are unabashedly crossover at times – and avoid lots of the too-familiar soul duo modes of the period. Titles include "Love Wars", "Express Myself", "Baby I'm Scared Of You", "TKO", "Good Times", and "APB". Radio MUSC Man is sweet electric funk from Womack and Womack – a set that's got the same sort of tight songwriting as their classic Love Wars set from the 80s, but a groove that's maybe even heavier on the beats and keyboards too! The style's still nice and warm, in all the right ways to work with the duo's vocals trading back to back – and in addition to Fender Rhodes from Linda, the album also features some nice worm from Bobby Lyle, Neal Larson, and Eddie Noble on the keys. Titles include "No Relief", "Maze", "Night Rider", "Strange & Funny", "Eyes", and "Radio MUSC Man". CD also features two bonus tracks – "Love Wars (inst dub)" and "Love Wars (ext voc)". CD

Outta Sight (UK), 1970s/2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
This series just keeps on getting better with each new volume – going back to the 70s and coming up with nuggets that nobody's thought about in years, then finding a way to put them all together so that they sound even better in the context of each other! There's plenty of funky cuts here – much more than you'd guess from the modern soul in the title – and the record captures that sweet shift when older deep soul and funk singers were coming into play with more sophisticated styles of arranging in the 70s – really finding a way to keep things righteous while stepping into some blacksploitation-styled grooves! As with other volumes, there's one or two more recent tracks, but most work here is of 70s vintage – and titles include "You Don't Know" by Ron Shy, "Never Let Nothing Get The Best Of You" by Bobby Womack, "Blood Is Thicker Than Water" by Willam DeVaughn, "You're Gone" by Celeste Hardie, "Lady Are You Crazy" by Mel Hayes, "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" by Karen Hernandez, "Lowdown (part 2)" by Brand New Funk, "Blind Heart" by Gene Chandler, "You Made A Believer Out Of Me" by Betty Lavette, "Somebody Please" by Billy Keene, "I'm Tired Of Running Around" by Young Ladies, and "That Love That A Woman Should Give To A Man" by Spanky Wilson.

California PlayboysTrying To Become A Millionaire (with download) ... LP
Loadstone/Manufactured, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
Stunning funky soul by California Playboys – a heck of a record that should have made the Playboys a huge combo at the time! It's a shame the group didn't become millionaires – but the obscurity of the record is maybe also one of its charms – the kind of small label set that never fully got its due at the time, but which is ripe for rediscovery all these many years later! The California Playboys were together for a number of years – forming as a backing band for singer Lester Young (not the sax player), doing session work for others, and otherwise developing their skills for years – all of which really comes through here in their sharp-edged instrumentation, which sounds even sharper in the 70s indie-level production for the album. The killer title tune sounds like it could (and should!) be the namesake tune of a funky mid 70s soundtrack – as it's really got a perfect cinematic soul vibe, ala Bobby Womack and Marvin Gaye – though in a tighter, smaller combo setting. Most tunes start with vocals and end with long instrumental riffing – and titles include"Double Love", "She's A Real Sweet Woman", "Just Say A Four Letter Word", "I've Got To Find Myself Another Girl", and "Turned On For Good".

Classic funky soul from the 70s – a set that definitely lives up to the blacksploitation groove promised in the title, thanks to a host of classics from the left field of the funky spectrum! Some of these cuts are well-remembered from back in the day, but most are the kind of underground tracks that have grown in strength over the years – thanks to circulation as hip hop samples, or on rare groove playlists – and in fact, the whole track list here might well read as kind of a dream list to hear on a funky dancefloor! Titles include "I Believe In Miracles" by The Jackson Sisters, "Give Me Your Love" by Sisters Love, "Across 110th Street" by Bobby Womack, "Testify" by Johnnie Taylor, "Talkin Loud & Sayin Nothin" by James Brown, "Love Me Back" by Willie Hutch, "I Cry" by Millie Jackson, "Hang Out & Hustle" by Sweet Charles, "Brother Louie" by Undisputed Truth, "Superfly" by Curtis Mayfield, and "Who Is He & What Is He To You" by Creative Source.

Blue Note (Japan), 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet Lou, but funky Lou too – a perfect blend of modes that makes for one of Donaldson's last great albums for Blue Note! The set's got some fuller arrangements from Horace Ott – but given Ott's work in the indie soul world during the 60s, there's still a nice edge to the record too – a mode that blends Lou's alto sax with some electric grooves in the CTI/Kudu mode – yet still with plenty of respect for the soloist at the helm! There's a bit of female chorus vocals on the record – used in a hip way to underscore the chorus bits on some of the more soulful tunes – and Donaldson almost does a Stanley Turrentine bit on the ballads, by blowing these soulful lines that sound surprisingly great in the modern setting. Rhythm features Pretty Purdie on drums, Cornell Dupree on guitar, and Horace Ott on keyboards – and titles include the funky classic "Peepin", a remake of the earlier "Herman's Mambo", and a sweet take on Bobby Womack's "You're Welcome Stop On By" – as well as the cuts "Hip Trip", "Lost Love", and "if You Can't Handle It Give It To Me".

RCA, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great early stuff by the New Birth – with a sound that's a lot funkier than some of their other records! The sound of the album shows how the band had a great formula for taking original tracks and covers, and redoing them with their unique group sound that gave them a good party feel. This is especially apparent in the record's cover of Bobby Womack's "I Can Understand It", redone here in an excellent 6 minute version with heavy percussion. The band also does a great remake of "Easy Evil", with a sinister edge that was missing from the original. Also great are the original cuts "Got To Get A Knutt" (which was also issued on a later album), and the groovy "Theme From Buck & the Preacher", with some great funky flute work!

A freewheeling, boozy solo set from the Stones' Ronnie Wood – and a star-studded one at that! 1234 is a charmingly ragged batch – with one tune co-written by R&B great Bobby Womack of all people, and a few that Ronnie co-wrote with unsung country rock genius Jim Ford, of Harlan County (should-be) fame. Ronnie's vocals sound surprisingly close to the way Bob Dylan's did in the late 70s and early 80s, albeit with a lot more of a buzzed swagger, which certainly suits the material! Perhaps the greatest perk of being a Stone is that you're granted access to the most amazing musicians – and this record features appearances by Bobby Womack, Charlie Watts, Anita Pointer, Waddy Wachtel, Bobby Keys and others. Includes "1234", "Fountain Of Love", "Outlaws", the cool honky tonk/blues instrumental "Redeyes" (dedicated to Mick Jagger. . .wonder what Mick was up to to cause the redness), "Wind Howlin' Through", "Princeless", "She Was Out There", "Down To The Ground" and "She Never Told Me".

For example, there's a section that offers pages of key records by important producers/studio forces – and specific looks at key albums from regional scenes in the US. The book also opens with a great color section, which has some rare photos and great images, with another section like that in the middle – and the book has chapters and discographies on Otis Redding, Bobby Womack, and Sam Cooke – with most of the text in Japanese. We should tell you that there's definitely a lot of Japanese-only text in the book – like most of these disc guides – but there's also plenty in English to enjoy, especially the different categories for the music – which even include lists of great songs in specific tempos. 224 pages overall – with images in color and black and white.

✨✧ Loleatta HollowayLoleatta Holloway (double 12'' promo version) ... LP
Gold Mind, 1979. Used 2 x 12" ... Out Of Stock
A really classic set of dancefloor tracks from Loleatta Holloway – and a set that's got her fully stepping into the disco diva role, after starting out as more of a deep soul singer! Holloway's rich, full voice is perfect for the setting – a proud, confident lead that really soars out in the album's great arrangements – a nicely varied mix of Salsoul-styled club cuts, arranged by Bobby Womack, Floyd Smith, and Tom Washington. The different talents bring a nice range of approaches to the record, which further helps flesh out Loleatta's nicely maturing vocal style – and tunes include That's What You Said", "The Greatest Performance Of My Life", "All About The Paper", "Sweet Mother Of Mine", and "There Must Be A Reason". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousI Got Soul – Blacksploitation Mood ... LP
Playoff (France), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Classic funky soul from the 70s – a set that definitely lives up to the blacksploitation groove promised in the title, thanks to a host of classics from the left field of the funky spectrum! Some of these cuts are well-remembered from back in the day, but most are the kind of underground tracks that have grown in strength over the years – thanks to circulation as hip hop samples, or on rare groove playlists – and in fact, the whole track list here might well read as kind of a dream list to hear on a funky dancefloor! Titles include "I Believe In Miracles" by The Jackson Sisters, "Give Me Your Love" by Sisters Love, "Across 110th Street" by Bobby Womack, "Testify" by Johnnie Taylor, "Talkin Loud & Sayin Nothin" by James Brown, "Love Me Back" by Willie Hutch, "I Cry" by Millie Jackson, "Hang Out & Hustle" by Sweet Charles, "Brother Louie" by Undisputed Truth, "Superfly" by Curtis Mayfield, and "Who Is He & What Is He To You" by Creative Source. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes download!)
