✨✧ Al Gardner/Jack AshfordSweet Baby/I'll Fly To Your Open Arms ... 7-inch
Kent (UK), 1969/1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
There's a great groove and some heavy twang on "Sweet Baby" – tight drums and sharp guitar that provide a subtle current of funk underneath the great lead vocals by Al Gardner! The cut was put together by the great Jack Ashford – who gets his time in the lead on the flipside – soaring out on a cut from nearly a decade later, with a warmly-grooving Cali soul style, and some nice larger arrangements from Paul Riser! 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousJack Ashford's Just Productions ... LP
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 22.99
A huge legacy of Detroit soul – all from the masterful hands of onetime Motown maestro Jack Ashford and his Just Productions team! Ashford's had his hands in countless great records over the years – early work with Motown, key Detroit Pied Piper Productions material, and all these excellent cuts from later years – done by Jack in a mix of Northern Soul styles, and some even funkier modes for the 70s! Almost all these tracks only got released on tiny little labels, mostly as singles – and the set also includes a few never-heard tunes from the Ashford vaults – although overall, most of this music is still pretty darn obscure. Yet that never stops it from being great – as, similar to Detroit contemporary Dave Hamilton, Ashford was always working at a top level – and always found a way to bring his A-game to the table, even if he wasn't going for a hit. LP version features the vinyl debut of a few tracks – and titles include "Payback's A Drag" by The Smith Brothers, "I'll Fly To Your Open Arms" by The Family Brick, "Sweet Baby" by Al Gardner, "I'm Gone" by Eddie Parker, "The Story Of My Life" by Billy Sha-Rae, "There Can Be A Better Way" by The Smith Brothers, "Don't Leave Me Baby" by Ray Gant & The Arabian Knights, "Stay Here With Me" by Sandra Richardson, "I Need Your Love" by The Stylists, and "Let Me Take Care Of Your Heart" by Jack Ashford himself. LP, Vinyl record album
