✨✧ Spirit Of AtlantaBurning Of Atlanta ... LP
Buddah, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Totally great – and a record you probably know nothing about! The album's one of the greatest ever to come out of the Hotlanta scene of the 70s – a tight batch of funk tracks with a heck of a lot of guitar. The set was produced by Tommy Stewart, of "Bump and Hustle" fame – and it's got an unusual style that's equally appealing to fans of funk, and fans of clubbier music – lots of tight playing, hard riffing, and longer grooves that soar along with impeccable grace. The whole thing's almost like the classic Wood Brass & Steel album – but with some rougher edges that make it even better! Includes the great tracks "Vine City" and "Messin Around", both of which are very long funk tracks, plus shorter cuts that are just as funky, like "Down Underground", "Freddie's Alive and Well", and "Buttermilk Bottom". Don't pass this up, it's a funky monster classic! LP, Vinyl record album

Blind Willie McTellAtlanta Twelve String ... LP
Atlantic, 1949. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
A 70s album, but one that features very early sides from Atlantic Records – raw acoustic blues from Willie McTell, recorded on a 12 string guitar down in Atlanta! The album's not just a great example of McTell at his best – witty vocals, and really sharp lines on the acoustic guitar – but also a key illustration of the Atlantic approach right at the start – an ability to find the best setting for the best talents – and really let them open up in a spontaneous, soul-drenched style! Titles include "You Got To Die", "Kill It Kid", "The Razor Ball", "Broke Down Engine Blues", "Dying Crapshooter's Blues", "Blues Around Midnight", "Pearly Gates", and "Soon This Morning".

Chance HaydenGet Somethin' ... CD
Ropeadope/Atlanta, 2018. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Tight guitar from Chance Hayden – a player who definitely knows how to get a lot of color and tone out of his instrument, even while picking out a sharp note solo! There's a dexterity in Hayden's style that's clearly inspired by the more proficient blues guitarists in recent generations – but the overall sound here is much more jazz funk, with a core quartet that features keyboards, bass, and drums – all in a nicely lean sound that allows Chance to shine in the spotlight at a level that's a bit like Eddie Roberts (of New Mastersounds fame) on some of his solo sets. Jarrod Lawson provides guest vocals on a great version of the Donny Hathaway tune "Someday We'll All Be Free" – and other tracks include "Hung Up On My Baby", "Get Somethin", "Matrix", "Take The Call", "Kissing My Love", "Many Disguises", and "You Mother You".

✨✧ AzanyahOne ... CD
Jazzman (UK), 1987. New Copy ... $8.99
One of the hippest records we've ever heard from the Atlanta scene of the 80s – a spiritual jazz set that feels like something that could have been recorded over a decade before – given the warm acoustic instrumentation, and righteous overall vibe! In fact, it may well have been the late 80s issue of this album that's kept it so lost over the years – a bit late in the game for any audiences digging this type of music, and with an odd date that's possibly gotten it missed by diggers mostly looking for 70s spiritual jazz sessions. Yet whatever the case, the album's a gem through and through – with these long, open tracks that build with a great blend of sax, flute, guitar, piano, and plenty of percussion – as well as the warm, solid basslines of Mamaniji Azanyah, the group's leader. There's a bit of vocals, but overall the album's instrumental – with a vibe that feels like some of the best mid 70s sounds on the Black Fire label. Titles include "The One", "In The Beauty Of Holiness", "Praise", "Guiding Light", and "I Will Surely Come Again". CD

David Allan CoeMysterious Rhinestone Cowboy/Once Upon A Time ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1974/1975. New Copy ... $16.99 24.99
Two great outlaw country records on a single CD! David Allan Coe might be the scariest outlaw ever – If Waylon and Hag knew that the gates of hell were about to crack open and beckon them in they might have been as ornery as Coe. This Bear Family collection assembles the full Mysterious Rhinestone Cowboy and Once Upon A Time LPs on CD for the first time – and it serves as a reminder of how so many great albums that don't quite dig their way into the public consciousness get neglected for far too many years! Tracks include "A Sad Country Song", "Crazy Mary", "The 33rd Of August", "Atlanta Song", "Desperados Waitin' For The Train", "The Old Grey Goose Is Dead", "Jody Like A Melody", "Sweet Vibrations", "Another Pretty Country Song", "Fraulein", and "Shine It On". 20 in all.

Anthony DavidHello Like Before – The Songs Of Bill Withers ... CD
Shanachie, 2018. New Copy ... $9.99 18.98
A really great combination of talents – the songs of Bill Withers and the vocals of Anthony David – a singer whose acoustic undercurrents make him a perfect partner for Bill's music! If anything, the presentation here might be even more spare and stripped-down than Withers' originals – as the music was recorded on the Atlanta scene, with backing from some of David's key associates – all in a laidback groove that's jazzy and electric one minute, spare and acoustic the other. The songs give David a majesty we've never heard before – and titles include "I Can't Write Left Handed", "Use Me", "Hope She'll Be Happier", "Lovely Day", "Kissing My Love", "Spend The Night", "Hello Like Before", "I Don't Know", "Grandma's Hands", and "You Can't Just Smile It Away".

✨✧ DaytoniansLet Jesus Work It Out ... LP
Church Door/Everland (Austria), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
The Daytonians may let Jesus work it out, but they also do a heck of a lot themselves – more than plenty to make the record a rare funky gospel treasure from the 70s! The group hail from Dayton, Ohio, and cut the record in Atlanta – and there's some indication that Calvin Arnold was involved with the whole thing – as there's key funky currents to the music that remind us of the mix of rootsy grit and tightness in his own records, and which sound even better next to the magnificent harmonies of the group! As with the best soul-styled gospel albums of the period, the grooves and production are pretty darn down to earth – meaning that there's plenty here to love even if you're not taken with the spirit – and even more if you are. Titles include "Shelter", "Why Can't I", "Jesus Is Calling", "Deep River", "My Rock", and "I Got Everything". LP, Vinyl record album

Diamond Street PlayersDiamond Street Players (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Gemco, 2019. New Copy ... $17.99 18.99
Raw funky soul from Diamond Street Players – heavy on vintage inspired, timelessly spun instrumentals, but nailing down some standout vocal jams with Orgone vocalist Adryon de Leon and Atlanta soul singer Amanda Joy – and ultimately delivering a solid gem for the Gemco label! The core group is a 5 piece with Ben Davis on sax and flute, Ian Newberry and Kevin Scott on guitars, Mark Raudabuagh on guitars and Spencer Garn on Hammond & Rhodes. Garn grooves strong enough to qualify as the group's secret weapon, but they're really a well oiled unit all around, nailing it on the intrumental tip and on soul-steeped backing vocals. Titles include "How Many Lies, How Many Times" with Adryon De Leon "Split The Difference", "Bada Dum Dum", "Healey '67", "Murky Retrograde", "Organ Workout", "Suzy's Boogaloo", "Million Miles" with Amanda Joy LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Disco Space Funk BandJourney Through The Night ... CD
Baby Grand/Everland (Austria), 1978. New Copy ... $14.99
A sweet little record that's way better than you might ever guess from the title – almost more of a jazz funk effort overall, with excellent work on guitar, trumpet, saxes, and keyboards! There's vocals on the album, but maybe more in a backup sort of way – and although the cuts could work on a dancefloor, they've often got the mix of jazz and groove that you'd find in some of the funkier Kudu Records material of the time – which might have been an inspiration for these guys! The album was recorded on the Atlanta scene of the late 70s, with lead guitar from Gary Ruffin – and titles include "Get Up & Get Down", "Summer Love", "Randy's Nap", "Simple Song", and "Journey Through The Night".

DonnieDaily News ... CD
Soul Thought, 2007. Used ... $2.99
An incredible second full album from Donnie – a set that's arguably even better than his neo-classic Colored Section album – thanks to tight backings from Steve "The Scotsman" Harvey! Donnie's vocals, lyrics, and overall vibe are as wonderful as before – and Steve really helps give the album a tremendous groove on the bottom – a warmly funky style that's got its roots firmly in the 70s, but without any sort of too-retro cliches, or overused funky gimmicks. The sound is lean, clean, and totally righteous – a snapping sort of groove that fits perfectly with the full, rich flow of Donnie's incredible voice – more proof that he's easily one of the greatest male singers in soul music working today, and an artist who's finally given us another full taste of his genius! Titles include "Impatient People", "Suicide", "Classifieds", "Daily News", "Atlanta Child Murders", "Robot", "Mason Dixon Line", and "If I Were You". CD

Loleatta HollowayLoleatta (1973) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Aware/Tidal Waves, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
If you only know Loleatta Holloway as a disco singer, you'll be really amazed at this debut album from 1973 – because Loleatta emerges first as deep soul singer with a strong southern vibe – very much in the mode the Atlanta scene did best, before picking up the pace a bit more as the 70s moved on! There's a mellow, blue sort of vibe to the record – but still plenty of that pride and power that made Holloway an equally great singer on an upbeat tune – served up here on tunes by Sam Dees, Ashford & Simpson, and other hip songwriters of the period – set to strong arrangements by Mike Terry, who does a great job of bringing out the lady at her best. Titles include "We Did It", "Mother Of Shame", "Only A Fool", "So Can I", "Our Love", and "Love Woke Me Up". LP, Vinyl record album

Millie JacksonLovingly Yours ... LP
Spring, 1976. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A great point in Millie Jackson's career – recorded when she was picking up more confidence and class, but not going too far into that badass mode of later years! The sound here is still mostly southern soul, but Millie and co-producer Brad Shapiro have warmed it up a lot – bringing in some of the clubbier touches that were bubbling through the Atlanta scene of the mid 70s – smoothing things out, but in a way that still has Jackson's heartfelt soul at the heart of the record. Both The Moments and Brandy sing backing vocals on some cuts, and titles include "From Her Arms To Mine", "A Love Of Your Own", "You Can't Turn Me Off", "I'll Be Rolling", "Help Me Finish My Song", "Body Movements", "I'll Live My Love For You", and "Something Bout Cha".

King HannibalTruth ... LP
Aware/Tidal Waves, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... About November 15, 2019
Mad funky soul from King Hannibal – a down and dirty singer from the Atlanta scene of the 70s! The notes on the back say "He's black, he's proud, he's arrogant – the combination is powerful" – and we've gotta say that we agree with that assessment, because King really grabs his groove from the very first note on the set! Backings are hard and funky – lots of fuzzy guitar work from Herman Hitson and Lee Moses – and the tunes come across with a gritty mode that sometimes rolls into mellower southern soul styles, but still never lose their edge. Bits of politics creep into the lyrics nicely, but never get in the way of the groove – and tracks include a long version of Hannibal's classic "Hymn No 5", plus "Party Life", "I Got That Will", "The Truth Shall Make You Free", "Wake Up", "Black Girl", and "It's What You Do".

Includes "Hide Me In The Bosom", "Honey It Must Be Love", "Sending Up My Timber" (takes 1 & 2), "Lord Have Mercy If You Please", "It's My Desire", "Don't Forget It", "You Can't Get Stuff No More" and more.

Cecilia Stalin & Khari SimmonsStory Of Love EP ... LP
Cecilia Stalin (UK), 2015. Sealed ... $9.99
We've always loved vocalist Cecilia Stalin, no matter what the setting – but here, she might be in the best company ever – working with jazzy backings from Khari Cabral Simmons and other members of the Atlanta scene – on a record that's drenched in soul from the very first note! Stalin hails from London, was born in Sweden, and worked with Koop and other overseas acts – but she's also got this strongly soulful quality that's always made her a favorite with American listeners too – and here, working with Khari, she's almost returning the favor by giving a special sort of Atlanta spin to her music! The music's based on strong basslines from Simmons, and features lots of warm keyboards – and all the rhythms are live, with a spontaneous jazzy undercurrent that works perfect with Cecilia's lovely vocals. Our only complaint might be that we would have loved a full record from the duo – but the four songs here offer maybe more than most other full LPs. Titles include a great reworking of Jon Lucien's "Sunny Day", plus "He Loves You", "The Story Of Love", and "Norwegian Wood". LP, Vinyl record album

BGP (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.98
Funky soul from one of the less-discovered scenes in the south – the hotbed of small labels that were making some mighty great grooves in Atlanta during the 70s! The Peachtree city isn't nearly as well-cited as a soul music source in comparison to places like Memphis, Muscle Shoals, and even Miami – but back in the mid 70s, there was something really special going on – and for a strong moment, a few different labels really gave the city some great music! Much of the work here represents the changing character of Atlanta itself – deep soul vocals that were forged in a longer southern tradition, mixed with well-crafted grooves that show all the modern elements coming into play as the city grew and matured. Most of this work has a pre-disco vibe – with rhythms that are similar to the early work of Fatback or Kool & The Gang – with the difference that the singers in the lead are all pretty darn great on their own. BGP did an excellent job of choosing the tracks for the set, and the notes, as always, are great – and the package features 22 titles that include "Let's Dance" by Family Plann, "Seeds Of Life" by East LA Car Pool, "Down At The Disco" by Maggabrain, "Ain't It Funky" by Johnny Jacobs, "The Bump" by Floyd Smith, "Help Me (parts 1 & 2)" by Archie Russell, "I Don't Know What It Is But It Sure Is Funky" by Ripple, "Funk Pump" by The Counts, "Claim Jumpin" by Bill Brandon, "Checkmate" by The Ebony Godfather, "Shouldn't I Be Given The Right To Be Wrong" by Joe Hinton, "Husband In Law" by CL Blast, "Only A Fool" by Loleatta Holloway, "When I Build My World" by Jimmy Lewis, and "Complain To The Clouds" by Deep Velvet.

Beautifully sensitive work from pianist Geri Allen – a session cut with a core trio of Ron Carter on bass and Jimmy Cobb on drums, but one that sparkles even more from guest contributions by Wallace Roney and Carmen Lundy! Geri's piano is at the forefront of the set – sliding out gracefully with a sound that's not exactly timeless, but which has a soulful energy that reminds us a lot of some of the best styles of her roots – focused a bit more here, and augmented on a few tracks by the Atlanta Jazz Chorus, a vocal group who hardly dominate the record, but float in very gently alongside Geri's piano – almost in a style that's similar to the use of voices on some of Duke Pearson's last recordings for Blue Note. Titles include "Portraits & Dreams", "Oh Freedom", "Melchezedik", "Well Done", "La Strada", "I Have A Dream", "Nearly", "In Real Time", "Our Lady", and "Timeless Portraits & Dreams".

Brick's Atlanta-bred groove is very much in place here – that lean, mean approach to funk that made them a standout right from the get-go – almost setting the scene for the stripped-down modes that so many other groups would follow well into the 80s! That tighter sound lets the group really hit a strongly soulful focus here – serving up some of their best vocals to date, and reminding us that some of the best mainstream funk groups always had a strong ability to harmonize over their grooves.

She's got a way of putting over a lyric with lots of jazzy twists and turns – fusing her soul with a slightly cosmic approach that makes her sound head and shoulders above most of her contemporaries on the indie soul scene. Plus, Julie's lyrics are always far beyond cliche – sophisticated, yet simple and personal – with a "dexterity" that's as charming as it is soulful!

The style's a bit more contemporary than the Curtom years, but never too much so – and there's more than enough warmth in the instrumentation to match Mayfield's still-great vocals on the lyrics. The tunes are decidedly less political – more about love and romance – but that's ok with us, because they're the sort of themes that Curtis first started with back in the early years of his career.

The real key to the group is bassist Layman Jackson – who's got a round, warm tone that really shines out wonderfully on the best numbers. The drummer, Allen Murphy, is capable of some sharply rhythmic moments, and Mitchell's piano work is pretty soulful and mellow too – but it's Jackson's bass that really sets the pace, laying out some round and warm passages that remind us a lot of some of the best Monty Alexander records on MPS. The album includes nice versions of "Alone Again Naturally", "Killing Me Softly", and "Windmills Of Your Mind" (with vocals by Murphy) – plus the originals "Another Way To Feel", "Can't Make It Anymore", and "Now That I Know What Loneliness Is", all of which have vocals. Not the funky, but with a really nice mellow and soulful finish – and issued on the house label of the Dante's Den nightclub! LP, Vinyl record album

Lead singer Stevo is only part of the package here – as the group features work from and songs by funky 45 legend Calvin Arnold, and indie club genius Tommy Stewart – both of whom have given us some wonderful records over the years! The vibe is maybe most like Tommy Stewart's excellent music – especially his self-titled classic album – a mode that's funky club, but never straight disco at all – thanks to lots of hip touches in the instrumentation and overall song construction, which really seems to respect the funky talents of the musicians. A killer funk set throughout – and titles include "Pay The Price", "Universal Love", "Messing Up A Good Thing", "Jammin", "Livin For The City", "Save The World", and "Party Night". CD

The sticker's well-placed, though – as Chris doesn't just drum, but also opens the door for a host of strong guest stars to provide plenty of lyrical content – a large lineup that includes Anderson.Paak, Bilal, Tweet, Sy Smith, Donald Rose, Krndn, Sir, Stokley Williams, Eric Roberson, Phone Coleman, Goapele, Anna Wise, Shafiq Husayn, and others – all of whom bring enough range of expression to match the energy of the Black Radio project from Robert Glasper! Like those records, this set's one that you never would have expected from Blue Note years back – but it's also a great example of the way the label's trying to find a new energy of expression in jazz – as Dave's drums work with keyboards from James Poyser, organ from Marcus Hodge, guitar from Isaiah Sharkey, and other great instrumental contributions from the likes of Keyon Harrold, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, and DJ Jazzy Jeff. The sound of the set is as diverse as its many collaborators – and titles include "Job Well Done", "Lady Jane", Trippy Tipsy", "Universal Language", "Rocks Crying", "Spread Her Wings", "Destiny N Stereo", "Clear View", "Atlanta Texas", "Whatever", "Sensitive Granite", "Cosmic Intercourse", "Dat Feelin", and "Black Hole".

✨✧ DaytoniansLet Jesus Work It Out ... CD
Church Door/Everland (Austria), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Daytonians may let Jesus work it out, but they also do a heck of a lot themselves – more than plenty to make the record a rare funky gospel treasure from the 70s! The group hail from Dayton, Ohio, and cut the record in Atlanta – and there's some indication that Calvin Arnold was involved with the whole thing – as there's key funky currents to the music that remind us of the mix of rootsy grit and tightness in his own records, and which sound even better next to the magnificent harmonies of the group! As with the best soul-styled gospel albums of the period, the grooves and production are pretty darn down to earth – meaning that there's plenty here to love even if you're not taken with the spirit – and even more if you are. Titles include "Shelter", "Why Can't I", "Jesus Is Calling", "Deep River", "My Rock", and "I Got Everything". CD

✨✧ Curtis MayfieldHonesty ... CD
Boardwalk, 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Curtis Mayfield's still very firmly on track with this set – recording in his new hometown of Atlanta, but also working with Chicago talents like Rich Tufo and Morris Jennings – all in a warm mellow groove that's totally great! The style's a bit more contemporary than the Curtom years, but never too much so – and there's more than enough warmth in the instrumentation to match Mayfield's still-great vocals on the lyrics. The tunes are decidedly less political – more about love and romance – but that's ok with us, because they're the sort of themes that Curtis first started with back in the early years of his career. Titles include "Summer Hot", "Still Within Your Heart", "Hey Baby", "Nobody But You", and "If You Need Me". CD

✨✧ Ric CarteyOooh Eee – The Complete Ric Cartey ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Ric Cartey may not be the biggest name in late 50s rockabilly – but man, does he sure sound great on this set – the first-ever collection to bring together Cartey's classic singles for RCA, plus a wealth of other rare 45s too! Cartey hails from Atlanta, and recorded a bit for that city's famous NRC indie – but despite the setting, Ric's got a great romping sound that's definitely all his own – maybe less hillbilly than some of his contemporaries of the period, and always ready to romp out with a hard-wailing groove! Production on most of these numbers is great – the kind of spare, stark, echoey vibe that makes already-great elements sound even cooler – and the whole package features a huge booklet of notes that tell the tale of Ric's overlooked career in music. Titles include "Crying Good Bye", "Mellow Down Easy", "Oooh Eee", "Poor Me", "Go On Fool", "Scratchin On My Screen", "To Love", "Leave Me Loose", "Born To Love One Woman", "I Wancha To Know", and "Let Me Tell You About Love" – and CD also features 11 more bonus tracks related to the collection, by Sonny James, The Jiv-A-Tones, Charlie Broome, Bobby Wilson, and Chuck Atha.
