Albert WashingtonSad & Lonely (180 gram pressing) (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Eastbound/Tidal Waves, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
An obscure bit of heavy soul – and the only vocal album on the jazz-based Eastbound imprint of Detroit's legendary Westbound Records! Albert's a blues artist, and sings in a soulful electric style that's similar to some of the Stax work of Albert King – but which has a bit more of a funk twist to it. Albert's vocals are definitely in the bluesy mode, but the backing is more in a Memphis soul style, with hints of Stax production styles in the mix, and lots of swirling organ underneath the vocals, in that Hi Records mode from the early 70s. Titles include "You're Messing Up My Mind", "Mischievous", "Feel The Need", "I Can't Stand It No More", "No Matter What The Cost Might Be", and "My Mother's Prayer". A pretty solid soul album all the way through – with a strong deep soul feel that's different than the usual Westbound/Eastbound bag! LP, Vinyl record album
(2019 Record Store Day UK/EU release!)

VariousSpotlight On Fraternity EP ... 7-inch
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy (pic cover)... $11.99
A great look at Fraternity Records – an Ohio company who never issued that many records back in the day, but who made some fantastic contributions to the scene! Fraternity is best known as the home to a few crossover rockers, but the company also recorded some great soul tracks too – following the lead of fellow Cincinnati label King Records, although maybe with a better ear for rock tracks than King would have as the 60s moved on. This beautiful 7" EP features four great tracks from Fraternity – "Jealous Woman" by Albert Washington & The Kings, "Rockin Pneumonia" by The Charmaines, "Walk Like A Man" by 2 Of Clubs, and "Sa Ba Hoola" by Lonnie Mack. 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousWestbound Funk – Masterful Funk From The Detroit Powerhouse Labels Of Eastbound & Westbound ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99 22.99
The title's almost redundant – as the words "Westbound" and "Funk" mean virtually the same thing! From the late 60s through the mid 70s, Westbound was one of the key record labels in the sound of raw heavy funk – working with hit groups like Funkadelic and the Ohio Players to craft a sound that laid the blueprint for countless other groups of the time, and also featuring a wealth of obscurer artists with an even harder-hitting sound! The key styles of Westbound and related jazz label Eastbound were heavy and fuzzy ones – picking up off the heady and trippy styles of the late 60s Detroit scene, mixing things up with MC5 guitars, Norman Whitfield bass, and deep underground Tribe-styled jazz touches. This 20 track masterpiece is a brilliant summation of the important Westbound sound – and includes a few hits, some funky 45 classics, and an even bigger number of tracks we might not have heard otherwise! The notes are great, the tunes are super-funky, and the whole thing's one of the best funky collections you could ever hope to purchase. Titles include "You're Messing Up My Mind" by Albert Washington, "Back To Funk" by Robert Lowe, "You Caught Me Smilin" by The 19th Whole, "Conga Man" by King Errison, "Shake Your Head" by Spanky Wilson, "I Love You" by The Motivations, "I Don't Know What It Is But It Sure Is Funky" by Mighty Elegant, "Crazy Legs" by Donald Austin, "Stone Thing (part 1)" by Alvin Cash, "RPM" by Boots, "Funky World (part 1)" by Silky Vincent, "Get Funky Sweet A Little Bit" by Jackie Harris & The Exciters, "I'll Bet You" by Funkadelic, and "Why Not Start All Over Again" by The Counts. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousKeep The Dream Alive – A Tribute To Mayor Harold Washington ... LP
Ecobert, 1988. Very Good+ ... $4.99
An obscure late 80s soul effort – dedicated to the memory of (then) recently-departed Harold Washington – the first African-American mayor of Chicago! The set's a batch of message-oriented soul tracks – most dealing with Washington's legacy in some way – and the album was put together by the team of Charles and Curtis Colbert. Jerry Butler and Albertina Walker both make an appearance on the set – but most of the other singers are lesser-knowns from Chicago. Titles include "Words To Harold", "Carry On", "For The Love", "Thank You", "He Was The One", "Friend Of Mine", and "Keep The Dream Alive". LP, Vinyl record album
