✨✧ 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".

✨✧ Bobby WomackUnderstanding ... LP
United Artists, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 WomackAcross 110th Street ... LP
United Artists, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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 WomackRoads Of Life ... LP
Arista, 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great album from Bobby – different than his earlier albums for United Artists, but in a good way – one that revives his whole career, and takes his sound into a whole new direction! The album's got a smooth soul finish with some touches of synth funk – produced by Bobby and Patrick Moten, who would later work together on the masterful Poet LP – and the contrast between the more modern arrangements and Bobby's raspy soul vocals works wonderfully! The mellow tracks are really great – with a tight, lightly funky sound bubbling under Bobby's wonderful vocals – and the album's got loads of nice cuts like "The Roads Of Life", "Give It Up", "The Roots In Me", "Honey Dripper Boogie", "How Could You Break My Heart", and "What Are You Doing".

Wilson PickettWilson Pickett Sings Bobby Womack ... CD
Atlantic/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Two of the hippest soul artists of the late 60s – coming together here for an incredible collection of work! Bobby Womack would explode into huge fame as a star in his own right at the end of the decade – but at the time of these recordings, he was mostly getting play as a songwriter – and the young Wilson Pickett was one of the strongest supporters of his work! The tracks here were all recorded between 1966 and 1968 for Atlantic Records – including many excellent Muscle Shoals recordings – and the style of Womack's writing is a perfect blend with the deep soul vocals of the Wicked Pickett – at a level that almost seems to provide a blueprint for the mode that Bobby would use on his first few length albums. The lyrics are wonderful – full of fantastic feeling, and arguably more mature than some of the contemporary soul from the time – and it's wonderful to hear all the selections together in one place, especially with detailed notes that really frame the whole project. Titles include "It's A Groove", "Let's Get An Understanding", "People Make The World What It Is", "Trust Me", "Remember I Been Good To You", "I've Come A Long Way", "Sit Down & Talk This Over", "Nothing You Can Do", "I'm In Love", "I'm Sorry About That", "I Found A True Love", "We've Got To Have Love", and "Jealous Love" – and the CD also features two great bonus tracks – an early Bobby Womack single from Atlantic in 1967 – with Bobby singing "Find Me Somebody" and "How Does It Feel".

✨✧ George BensonBreezin ... LP
Warner, 1976. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A super huge hit for George – the record that took him from being a funky jazz guitarist into an R&B superstar! The album features George playing and singing over arrangements by Claus Ogerman – some of Ogerman's best of the 70s, ones that mix together his trademark pillow of sound with a slightly funky bounce. The result is incredible – and the album is filled with loads of great songs – including George's excellent version of Bobby Womack's "Breezin", the hit version of "This Masquerade", and the cuts "So This Is Love", "Six To Four", and "Affirmation".

Cornell CampbellDance In A Greenwich Farm ... CD
Radiation Roots (Italy), 1975. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Sublime soul from Cornell Campbell – a Jamaican singer, but one who lists Sam Cooke, Curtis Mayfield, and Bobby Womack as his strongest inspirations! You can definitely hear that trio of heavyweights on Cornell's vocals here – which are wonderful, and filled with inflections from 60s soul – sliding slinkily over rhythms provided by The Agrovators, and produced with a very rich sound by the great Bunny Lee! The album's a great 70s evolution of the rocksteady soul of the previous decade – with almost a sweet soul current in the mix – and titles include "Conquering Gorgon", "Girl Of My Dreams", "Natural Facts", "Lost In A Dream", "Somebody Has Stolen My Girl", "Why Did You Leave Me", and "Watch This Sound".

Atlantic, 1968. Very Good- ... $9.99
One of Aretha's undisputed classics – a seminal session that furthered her deep soul agenda with key backings from Arif Mardin and Tom Dowd! The Sweet Inspirations provide sublime backing vocals behind Franklin's maturing delivery of the lyrics – and the music is by an all-star group of players that includes Spooner Oldham, Bobby Womack, Jimmy Johnson, King Curtis, Tommy Cogbill, Roger Hawkins, and even Eric Clapton! Cuts include "You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman", "Chain Of Fools", "Money Won't Change You", "Come Back Baby", and "Ain't No Way". LP, Vinyl record album

Billy PrestonI Wrote A Simple Song ... LP
A&M, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $3.99
Billy Preston's first album on A&M Records – a surprisingly great home for his ever-evolving style! Billy give some big thanks in the notes to George Harrison, Bobby Womack, and Quincy Jones – all of whom he credits for bringing the album into being – although it's Quincy who really seems to do the most, given that he handled the string and horn arrangements for the set! Jones' touch is very apparent in the overall sound, as Preston's got a new sense of tightness for the record – a focus to his previous range of styles that really hits home hard, and which sets the tone for big successes to come. Titles include the nice funk instrumental "Outta Space", plus "I Wrote A Simple Song", "John Henry", "The Bus", "The Looner Tune", "You Done Got Older", and "Should've Known Better".

VariousGetting To Me – 25 Tracks From The Classy Atlantic End Of The Rare 60s Soul Spectrum ... CD
Atlantic/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Excellent rare soul from Atlantic – and a very different side of the label's output! The focus here is on tracks that are a bit more sophisticated than the hits – not really mellow, as most of the numbers are very nice groovers, but just with a twist that sets them apart from some of the label's other material. The 25-track set begins with a previously unissued gem from Ben E King – "Getting To Me", which has some of the most amazing arrangements we've heard on his records – and the collection follows with an equally great batch of lesser-known cuts from the legendary soul label – really wonderful all the way through, and handled with the usual Kent Records excellent notes and sound quality. Other titles include "Sly Girl" by Derek Martin, "My Love Is Getting Stronger" by Cliff Nobles, "Here Come The Tears" by Darrell Banks, "You My Love" by Tami Lynn, "Across The Street" by Lenny O'Henry, "Come On Baby & Hurt Me" by Naomi & Harris, "New Day Begins" by Parliaments, "Find Me Somebody" by Bobby Womack, "Got To Get You Back" by Johnny Newbag, "Suffering City" by Johnny Copeland, "Where Did I Go Wrong" by The Embers, and "Thank You John" by Willie Tee.

✨✧ CrusadersVocal Album – The Greatest Vocal Hits From The Crusaders ... CD
MCA/Capitol, Late 70s/1980s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An essential document of the great soulful side of The Crusaders – that wonderful stretch when they started inviting singers to work along with their groove – further expanding their music into great territory for the 80s! There were some folks who wrinkled their nose at this at the time – thought it was a jazz group selling out by adding singers. But to us, it was a brilliant move – as The Crusaders already had a strongly soul-influenced groove – one that any vocalist would more than be happy to work with. Singers here include Bobby Womack, Flora Purim, Randy Crawford, Tina Turner, Bill Withers, Nancy Wilson, Joe Cocker, and BB King – and titles include "Better Not Look Down", "Hold On", "Help", "Soul Shadows", "The Way It Goes", "Burnin Up The Carnival", "Street Life", and "This Old World's Too Funky For Me".

✨✧ Lou DonaldsonSweet Lou ... LP
Blue Note, 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".

✨✧ New BirthBirth Day ... LP
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!

✨✧ Loleatta HollowayLoleatta Holloway (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Gold Mind/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... 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". CD features bonus tracks – "The Greatest Performance Of My Life (12" disco)", "That's What You Said (12" disco)", "All About The Paper (ext version)", and "The Greatest Performance Of My Life (Larry Levan rmx)".

✨✧ California PlayboysTrying To Become A Millionaire ... CD
Loadstone/Manufactured, 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Shaun EscofferyEvergreen ... CD
Dome (UK), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Why isn't Shaun Escoffery bigger? He's easily been one of the top soul singers in the world for over a decade – and a record like this should be in everyone's collection! Shaun's always had a cutting edge sound in his music – and this time around, he inflects it with a bit of classic soul too – mixing his 21st Century style with a sound that puts him rock solidly in the territory of Al Green, Marvin Gaye, or Bobby Womack – all artists we wouldn't hesitate to compare Shaun to – given the depth and consistency of his music! The record's a stunner – maybe the one that will finally break Escoffery to a bigger global audience – and even if it doesn't, it's one you'll be loving for years – which we know we will. Titles include "Love Shine Down", "Evergreen", "Healing Me", "When Love Is Gone", "Here Comes The Rain Again", "Lost For Words", "Win Again", and "Teachers". CD

✨✧ VariousI Got Soul – Blacksploitation Mood ... CD
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.
