Susan PhillipsSoft Sexy Soul (2017 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
All Platinum/Soul Brother (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
An appropriately titled set from Susan Phillips – an overlooked bit of slinky female soul that we'd rank right up there with All-Platinum early 70s releases by Sylvia and Eleanor Mills! The production is a wonderful mix of stripped down grooves with just the right amount of sweet strings and horns – creating just a gentle sort of New Jersey soul style that really works well with Phillips' vocals. Titles include her classic "He Knows My Key (Is Always In The Mailbox)" – plus "He's Gone", "Answer To A Prayer", "Please Don't Keep Me Lonely", "Just How Long", and "Goodbye My Love".

✨✧ Eleanore MillsThis Is Eleanore Mills ... LP
All Platinum/Soul Brother (UK), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The only album ever cut by Eleanor Mills – and a female soul treasure from the 70s that we've totally loved for years! Eleanor has a style that's partly deep soul, but she often works with some of the sweeter soul tendencies of the east coast scene at the time – no surprise, as she recorded this set of tracks for the All-Platinum subsidiary Astroscope in 1974, with production by Sammy Lowe and The Moments – with a sound that's just out of the world! Eleanor's rich voice is produced with a super-dope New Jersey sound, occasionally mixed with harder instrumentation, and the kind of spacey soul arrangements that make the cuts float away into the heavens. The album's one of the lost holy grails of New Jersey soul – a female soul album you can stack proudly next to your All-Platinum classics by The Whatnauts or Moments – and titles include "Fascinating Devastating Man", "He Said Goodbye", "Stop Accusing Me", "Telegram", "Teach Me Baby", and "I'm Gonna Get You". CD features three great bonus tracks – "Singing The Blues", "Something Is On Your Mind", and a very cool vintage radio ad promoting the album! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Retta YoungYoung & Restless ... LP
All Platinum/Expansion (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic sweet soul album – and one of our favorite records ever from the New Jersey soul empire of All-Platinum Records! The set's got a spacey soul sound that's really wonderful – quite different than some of the clubbier modes that other female singers were using at the time – and the record features both production and songwriting work by Harry Ray and Al Goodman of The Moments, who give Retta Young the same sweet touch they brought to their own excellent records for the label! The album's one of those really special female soul sets that goes way beyond expectation or familiar modes – a record we'd put right up there with other rare classics by singers like Ann Sexton or Gloria Scott. Titles include "I Love My Jim", "Now Or Never", "We're So In Love", "Really Really", "My Love Is On His Way", and "Let's Make Up For Lost Time". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Briscoe & The Little BeaversMy Ebony Princess (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Pi Kappa/P-Vine (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... About May 15, 2020 (delayed)
An east coast harmony classic from Jimmy Briscoe & The Little Beavers – a sweetly-voiced young soul group with a really positive sound! Jimmy and the group have a groove that's more mature than some of the other young soul acts to emerge in the wake of the Jackson Five – and the tracks on the set are a great balance of gentle ballads and more forceful numbers, done in modes that share a lot with some of the best New Jersey groups of the time, particularly those on the All-Platinum label. Production is full and rich – never too much so overpower the vocals, but with some wonderfully chosen instrumental touches from maestro Paul Kyser – but it's Jimmy's heartbreaking vocals that really drive the set. Titles include "My Ebony Princess", "I Only Feel This Way When I'm With You", "Theme From Forever", "Where Were You", "Pack Up", "My Fallen Angel", "Together", and "Country to the City". CD features 2 bonus tracks – "Why Do Fools Fall In Love" and "Sugar Brown". CD

Linda JonesHypnotized & 19 More Golden Classics ... LP
Collectables, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Great collection that appears to take the best of her hits for the Loma label, as well as the stuff she recorded for All Platinum. Hard southern soul sound, by a lady who's always been overlooked. 20 tracks in all, including "Hypnotized", "I Can't Stop Lovin' My Baby", "Give My Love A Try", "You Can't take It", "The Things I've Been Through", "Make Me Surrender (Baby, Baby Please)", "I'll Take Back My Love", "Fugitive From Love", "Not On The Outside", "I'll Be Sweeter Tomorrow" and "You Hit Me Like TNT".

✨✧ Tommy McGeeI'm A Stranger (Positive Negative plus bonus tracks) ... LP
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $22.99 24.99
A treasure trove of rare soul work from Tommy McGee – a fantastic sweet soul singer from the Michigan scene of the 70s, and one who should have been huge – judging by the quality of the work on this set! The core of the package is Tommy's rare 1976 album Positive Negative – a record that feels like some of the best All-Platinum/Stang New Jersey soul of the period – laidback, but with an edge – mellow, but slowly funky too – with Tommy's sweet vocals at the core of the whole thing, cascading gently around some really well-penned tunes! The set also includes a range of rare singles, too – some with Tommy in the lead, some by his TMGs band – a wonderful mix of rare Michigan funk and soul, all handled with the usual rock-solid Numero Group presentation. Titles include "What Can I Do", "Aggravation", "Give & Take", "The Hatch", "Now That I Have You", "Stay With Me", "Come On", "To Make You Happy", "Make Sure", "Take Me Home", "Guilty", and "We Ought To Be Together".

OptimisticsOptimistics ... LP
Turbo/Be With (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A fantastic album from this young Baltimore group – and one of the most obscure records on the All-Platinum label at the start of the 70s! The company was home to harmony soul heavyweights The Moments and The Whatnauts – and The Optimistics follow in very similar territory – nicely fragile, and kind of a 70s update of earlier street corner modes – but with a great development towards deeper soul styles by the lead singer – all captured in east coast harmony soul perfection by producer George Kerr! A really overlooked gem in the Sylvia Robinson empire – and titles include "You Put Something New In My Life", "Let's Love", "Should I Let Myself Go", "Say It Baby", "Man", and "If I Could Influence Man".

ThompsonsI'll Get Over It ... LP
BCW, Mid 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
A tremendous album from a totally hip Philly soul group of the 70s – the kind of quartet who would have been huge, had they recorded in another city – but whose genius was most likely eclipsed by the superstars that were stuffing the Philadelphia scene at the time! These guys have a great way of blending the rough with the smooth, the sweet with the funky – a vibe that's maybe more in the mode of some of the hip acts on Stang/All-Platinum, especially The Whatnauts – or with the badass vibe of their contemporaries Soul Generation – all with a sound that's got a lot more raw power than you'd guess from their rented tuxedos on the cover! The production is nice and raw – just dynamic group soul vocals, with just the right touches of funk instrumentation and larger orchestrations – all with an edge that really hangs on, even on the mellower numbers. Titles include "Love In Her Eyes", "Message", "Invincible", "You Gotta Get Down To Ever Get Up", "I'll Always Love You", "I'll Get Over It", and "We Love To Sing". LP, Vinyl record album

Willie & West/New SoundsWillie & West Meet The New Sounds (Willie & West At Their Best/New Sounds/bonus tracks) ... CD
Stang/Outta Sight (UK), 1971. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Rare soul galore – a pair of totally rare albums, plus bonus tracks too! First up is Willie & West At Their Best – a killer of a soul album from the New Jersey underground! This is the same Willie from Willie & The Mighty Magnificents – working here with singer West, who he supposedly started out with. The pair have a style that's a bit like some of the sock-soul duos of the 60s – but they're also willing to let each other take the lead from time to time, singing in a deep soul style that belies their Augusta, Georgia roots! The album's nice and raw – a rare soul gem with a rough and ready heart that keeps it strong over the years. Titles include "Can You Hear The Voices", "The Will", "Beautiful Party", "Deep Down In Your Soul", "You & Me", "Key To My Happiness", and "Watch Yourself". The next album by The New Sounds is some of the deepest soul ever cut by the All Platinum family of labels – done by a vocal group who were contemporaries of The Moments and Whatnauts, but who sang with an even grittier sound overall! There's definitely some sweet New Jersey touches on the set, but some tracks also bring in a bit of a southern soul element too – a nice sense of raspiness on the vocals that's a completely charming combination with the spare instrumentation and rough-edged production! The album's exactly the kind we keep digging rare soul for – and it's a lost treasure from the early 70s east coast group scene – with cuts that include "Don't Take Your Love From Me", "Two Of A Kind", "Sweet Memories", "Having You Around", "Moving", "Tell Me Your Name", and "Just As I Am". CD also features 2 bonus tracks from Willie & West – "Attica Massacre" and "Nobody's Fault But Mine" – and one more bonus track from Robert Tanner, "Sweet Memories". CD

VariousMotown Disco – Selected By Muro & T-Groove ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $26.99
A fantastic look at the funkier side of Motown in the 70s – and a collection that's not just straight disco, thanks to the mighty selection talents of DJ Muro and T-Groove! Muro handles all of CD1 – and mixes in some excellent soundtrack numbers with more familiar soul tracks – and also presents a few classic cuts in remixed versions too! T-Groove is on CD2 – which has cuts that are maybe a bit more iconic in the Motown club sound of the 70s, but still pretty darn great when heard together in this set. Neither CD appears to be mixed – tracks all appear discrete and standalone – and the package features 37 titles that include "You Made Your Bed" by Reuben Howell, "Books & Basketball" by David Shire & James Di Pasquale, "T Plays It Cool (unedited version)" by Marvin Gaye, "Erucu" by Jermaine Jackson, "Mirrors Of My Mind" by Jackson 5, "Date With The Rain (DJ Spinna refreak)" by Eddie Kendricks, "Ego" by Ozone, "Big Time (M+M big time 2016 mix)" by Rick James, "Treat Her Like A Lady" by The Temptations, "Brothers Gonna Work It Out (Joey Negro return of the mac mix)" by Willie Hutch, "He's A Friend" by Eddie Kendricks, "Down To Love Town" by The Originals, "Go For It" by Billy Preston & Syreeta, "Full Speed Ahead" by Tata Vega, "Let's Be Young Tonight" by Jermaine Jackson, "Heaven Must Have Sent You" by Bonnie Pointer, "Shoulda Gone Dancin" by High Energy, "Saturday Night Sunday Morning" by Thelma Houston, "Star Love" by Three Ounces Of Love, "Tailgate" by 21st Creation, "Scratchin" by Magic Disco Machine, "Standing On The Verge" by Platinum Hook, and "I Need Your Lovin (M+M lovin all night long mix)" by Teena Marie.

✨✧ MonophonicsIt's Only Us ... CD
Colemine, 2020. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Monophonics sound better here than ever before – as if the group's gone through some great mutation that's got them coming across with a richer, more mature sound than we ever might have expected a few years before! Things are still pretty darn funky, but there's also strong currents of deeper 70s soul – both a fragile east coast harmony vein, and some fuller arrangements from time to time – almost as if All-Platinum Records were co-producing a set with Curtom – although with some of the sunnier Cali elements we've always heard from the group. Kelly Finnigan produced, and handled lead vocals and plenty of keyboards – but the set's definitely a group affair, and sounds different than Finnigan's other work – and has a sublime sound that's right at home on the Colemine label. Titles include "Tunnel Vision", "Last One Standing", "It's Only Us", "All In The Family", "Run For Your Life", "Day By Day", and "Suffocating". CD

✨✧ Tiombe Lockhart feat Robert Glasper, Bilal, eCUSSIONISTAquarius Years ... LP
Mother Tongue, Early 2000s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first official release of this debut solo album from Tiombe Lockheart – originally distributed via shows when she was a member of the Platinum Pied Pipers, and still a completely winning bit of spacey soul – with a vibe that really prefaces so much energy on the west coast in more recent years! Tiombe gets help on beats from Bilal, drums from Otis Brown Jr, and piano from Robert Glasper – but it's also very clear that the music is all very much her own – this spacey melange of influences from hip hop and soul, woven together in very deep textures, and topped with her beautifully crispy vocal approach! Titles include "California Dreaming", "Tip Of My Tongue", "You Need Me", "Mr Johnnie Walker", "Working Girls Suicide", "Sexy Suzy On A Sunday 1.5", and "GP". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sondra SimonFunky Fairytales ... CD
Midsong/Essential, Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The only full album ever recorded by New Jersey soul singer Sondra Simon – a vocalist who'd worked doing backup in a few other settings in the 70s – but who really soars here in the lead on her own! The album was done for the Midsong International label – an imprint that mostly specialized in cheaper disco records, but which really did a great job here with Sondra – who easily must have been the most soulful singer to work for the company at the time! Songs are really well-balanced between mellow numbers that burn with a New Jersey essence, and more upbeat tracks that have some Philly club touches – and the ballads alone are worth the price of admission, as they're the sort of special sleepers that are always prized on singles from a label like Stang/All-Platinum. Titles include "You Make So Naughty", "Weekend Genie", "Dead Weight", "Let's Make Love", "Funky Fairytales", "Good News", and "You Walked Right Out". CD

✨✧ FrightnrsNothing More To Say (with download) ... LP
Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Frightnrs have plenty more to say here – and they say it in a really sharp-edged approximation of older rocksteady modes! The group are contemporary, but like the best acts on Daptone, they've got an instantly classic feel – thanks to instrumentation and production that take us right back to late 60s Kingston, but with some of the sharper funky currents we've come to expect from the label! And while The Frightnrs may pitch themselves as an old school reggae act, they're also one that have a heavy dose of soul – almost a late night New Jersey current to their music at times – as if the All Platinum/Stang label put out their own version of Jamaican soul. The approach is great, and very unique – and titles include "Hey Brother", "Gotta Find A Way", "What Have I Done", "Nothing More To Say", "All My Tears", "Purple", "Dispute", and "Till Then".

✨✧ Herb AlpertRise ... LP
A&M, 1979. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A whole new level of genius for Herb Alpert – a record that's light years away from his earlier work with the Tijuana Brass, and which has the trumpeter stepping strongly into the world of smooth jazzy fusion! The title track here went platinum the minute it was released – and became an end-of-the 70s instrumental anthem that seemed to drift out of speakers around the country. The rest of the album's pretty great too – built on the modes explored by Donald Byrd, Freddie Hubbard, and other soulful fusion players of the 70s – but cast out with a bit more drama overall. Titles include the seminal jazz dance classic "Rotation" – plus "Rise", "Street Life", "Aranjuez (Mon Amour)", "1980", "Angelina", and "Love Is". LP, Vinyl record album
