✨✧ Average White BandRare Tracks Vol 1 – Clover Sessions & More ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
Fantastic early music from Average White Band – lots of 1973 recordings from their famous Clover Sessions, plus a handful of other very early tracks too! The group at this point are perfect – actually, they're often pretty darn perfect, but also have an edge here that really keeps things interesting – with a sound that's undeniably soulful, very funky at the core, and touched with just the right amount of warmth in the instrumentation without ever sounding slick or commercial. These aren't rough demos or throwaway tracks – and instead, the set is filled with killer gems from this wonderful group – 21 titles that include "Back In 67 (first version)", "McEwan's Export", "Person To Person", "There's Always Someone Waiting", "Reach Out (first version)", "It Didn't Take A Minute", "The Jugglers (first version)", "In The Beginning", and "White Water Dreams".

✨✧ Average White BandAverage White Band ... LP
Atlantic, 1974. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
AWB's first for Atlantic – and a nice slice of funk that proves that they can mix it up with the best groups of the 70s! The record's got plenty of sweet electric keyboards over smooth funky basslines – and as the years go by, the band's white boy vocals don't sound nearly as bad as we remember them. And besides, when they play their instruments so nicely – how can you hold the singing against them? Includes the killer classic "Pick Up The Pieces", sampled more times than we can remember – plus "You Got It", "Just Wanna Love You Tonight", "Person To Person", and a nice remake of the Isley Brothers' "Work To Do". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

✨✧ Average White BandFeel No Fret ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sure, it's not classic funky Average White Band, but the album's a great one that showcases the group's best second suit – their smooth compressed late 70s soul sound – a great evolution of their earlier groove, and one that showed them as a great mainstream soul act! The tunes are a bit mellower overall, but still have a lot of crackle and warmth – and Hamish Stuart's lost none of his vocal charm, and in fact may even sound better in a more laidback, less funky heavy setting! With the great break track "Stop The Rain" – and the cuts "When Will You Be Mine", "Please Don't Fall In Love", "Walk On By", "Feel No Fret", "Atlantic Avenue", "Ace Of Hearts", "Too Late To Cry" and "Fire Burning".

CrackinCrackin ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1977. New Copy ... $6.99 11.99
A classic from Crackin – an overlooked 70s band, but a great one too – working together here in a hip mix of soul, funk, and fusion – one that's not unlike Average White Band at their best! As with AWB, Crackin really have a great way with a bassline – letting things bump along nicely at the bottom, and adding in some jazzy instrumentation on keyboards, guitar, and a bit of horns. Vocals are often sung by the group together, furthering the ensemble groove of the set – and titles include "It Just Takes Awhile", "I Know You Can", "Do You Need More Time", "You'll Feel Better", "The World's A Fool For You", and "Don't You Wish You Could Be There".

CrackinSpecial Touch ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1978. New Copy ... $6.99 11.99
Crackin definitely have a special touch on this 70s set – a way of mixing together funk, soul, and jazz influences – all in a groove that's every bit as tight as contemporaries like Rufus or Average White Band, even though Crackin never reached the heights that they did! The core instrumentation is always right on the money, and never too overproduced – letting guitars and keyboards lay out the groove, then bringing in vocals from Leslie Smith and Arno Lucas, both great singers who sound especially nice when they come together. Tunes are wonderfully written – quite memorable, without ever sounding like commercial hits – and titles include "Nobody Else", "Double Love", "Too Young", "I Could Be Anything", "Don't Cha Love Me", "In Between", and "Kalalee".

Haggis HornsStand Up For Love ... LP
Haggis (UK), 2020. New Copy ... $24.99
The Haggis Horns just seem to get tighter and tighter with each new record – to a point where they're way more than just another funk combo with a gimmicky name, and have grown into a really great soul group on their own! The rhythms, arrangements, and horns are great – but there's also plenty of excellent vocals on the set from John McCallum, a singer who helps the group move way past just simple funk modes, and way into more of a fuller-blown style of vintage soul – one that might rival the best of their countrymen, Average White Band – and which almost has the sharp crackle and snap of early work by Brand New Heavies! Titles include "Burning", "Stand Up For Love", "Give It Up", "Haggis Express", "Shoulder To Shoulder", "Don't Give A Damn", and "Suzi Traffic". LP, Vinyl record album

Principal EdwardsRound One (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Deram/Esoteric (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
An obscure later album from the theatrical Principal Edwards group – one that still has all the mystical flourishes of earlier work, but which also refines the sound into a more straight ahead vibe. The band's still got a great fascination with interesting time changes and rhythms – using them to push along tunes with a playful approach that matches their themes – nicely creating little showpieces from track to track, with almost an art rock sound at times. Titles include the instrumental "Triplets", plus "Average Chap", "Halibut Rock", "Milk & Honeyland", "Dear Mrs O'Reilly", "The Rise Of The Glass-White Gangster", "The Whizzmore Kid", and "Juggernaut". 3 bonus tracks, too: "Captain Lifeboy", "Nothing" and Weekdaze".

VariousAtlantic Family Live At Montreux (with bonus track) ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1978. New Copy ... $6.99 12.98
A host of great talents from Atlantic Records all coming together in a really unique set of performances – some extended jazz and soul jams that go way beyond any studio work by the artists at the time! No single artist gets the spotlight at once – so that the even really is the "Atlantic Family" promised in the title – a richly collaborative performance that features full arrangements put together by Arif Mardin, with work from Herbie Mann on flute, Randy Brecker on trumpet, Michael Brecker on tenor, Richard Tee on keyboards, Dick Morrissey and Klaus Doldinger on tenor, Sonny Fortune and David Newman on alto, and Barry Rogers on trombone – plus a good chunk of Average White Band as well, ensuring a sweet funky groove throughout! Most moments are instrumental, but the set also features some vocals from Ben E King, Hamish Stuart, and Alan Gorrie on lead – plus backup from a group that includes Luther Vandross as well. Titles include a 21 minute version of "Pick Up The Pieces" – plus "One To One", "McEwan's Export", "Jadoo", "Bahia", and "Everything Must Change". CD features a bonus single mix of "Bahia". CD

VariousBabies Makin' Babies 2 – Misery Strikes Back, No More Babies – Compiled By ?uestlove ... CD
BBE (UK), 1970s. Used ... $9.99
Bury your love deep, deep down with ?uestlove – a soundtrack compilation of strangely sweet soul misery – and the superior sequel to the Babies Makin' Babies set on BBE! This time ?uestlove programs a number of 70s soul tunes, some relatively rare, which provide the bittersweet sounds of heartbreak. Many of the tracks have the lightly symphonic mellow soul sound that dominated the first Babies Makin' Babies set, with others that put more of a focus on the electric keys, and simmering funk number or two for good measure. A great listen – as both a thematic showpiece and as straightforward soul compilation! Tracks include "Our Love Has Died" by Ohio Players, "Mother And Son Bedroom Talk" by Blackbyrds, "Anti Love Song" by Betty Davis, "If You Don't Love Me" by DJ Rogers, "Cause We Ended As Lovers" by Syreeta, "I'm Sorry" by Delfonics, "I Almost Lost My Mind" by Albert King, "That's The Way I Feel About Cha" by Bobby Womack, "You're Supposed To Keep Your Love For Me" by Jermaine Jackson, "One Look Over My Shoulder" by Average White Band and "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart" by Al Green.
