✨✧ Baby HueyBaby Huey Story – The Living Legend (limited edition) ... LP
Curtom/Run Out Groove, Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic! The lost link in the Chicago soul scene of the 60s was Baby Huey – and he was a pretty darn big link too, if you've ever seen him in pictures! Weighing in at about 300 pounds, Baby Huey was sort of a rockin' soul star who played clubs on both sides of the city, to audiences of all types – working in a party-styled blend of funk, rock, and soul that was one of the most powerful grooves going down in the Windy City at the time! Huey sadly passed away at a very young age, leaving only this full album as his legacy – a great batch of hard-hitting soul tracks that are among some of the funkiest work ever recorded for the legendary Curtom label! The set includes Huey's classic version of "Mighty, Mighty", a club favorite from the live shows – plus the excellent Curtis Mayfield tune "Hard Times", famous as an oft-used sample track! Other titles include "A Change Is Going To Come", "California Dreamin", "Running", and "Mama Get Yourself Together". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition! Beautiful pressing – with a heavy tip-on cover.)

✨✧ Baby HueyHard Times/Listen To Me ... 7-inch
Soul Brother (UK), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the best-remembered tunes from this Curtom funk legend – a track that begins witht his famous break made from drums and fluttering flute – then rolls into a super-righteous lyric that's delivered with all the majesty that Baby Huey had to offer! "Listen To Me" is also great – one of his funkiest tracks ever, with a massive bass break at the start – then the kind of full-on vocalizations that made Huey a legendary live draw during his few short years on the planet! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ AuraAura ... LP
Mercury, Mid 70s. Very Good Gatefold ... $8.99
Is this the same group that went onto become Aurra and record disco records for Salsoul? We don't think so, but folks tell it that it is. Whatever the case, though, the record's a great batch of funky rock tracks, with some really hard groovers that crossover to a funky soul market – despite the obvious rock leanings of the group. Check out the group's excellent version of "Listen To Me (The Ragg)", done with these great descending guitars, soaring organ, and soulful vocals by Al Lathan that are very much in the Baby Huey mode. Other tracks include "No Opportunity Needed, No Experience Necessary", "Song Of Everything", "Life Is Free", "Cross Eyed Eagle", and "Truckin". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

Cookie & The CupcakesKings Of Swamp Pop ... LP
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A much rawer group than you'd guess from the name – a sharp New Orleans combo that bridges the space between R&B and early soul – led by Huey Cookie Thierry on vocals and saxophone! Titles include "I Cried", "All My Loving Baby", "Feel So Good", "Mathilda", "I'm Twisted", "I Heard That Story Before", "Walking Down The Aisle", "Got You On My Mind", and "Mary Lou Doing The Pop Eye".

John Legend & The RootsWake Up (180 gram pressing with bonus download card) ... LP
GOOD/Columbia, 2010. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
John Legend shakes loose of the contemporary pop soul style of his previous couple of records with a comparatively raw and direct soul vibe – revisiting some of best socially aware, emotionally resonant and still relevant songs of the 60s & 70s! The best tracks on the set are the ones that have the rawest, most live sounding groove – and there's plenty of that, as he's backed by The Roots. There's no denying John Legend's truthful love of this material, and he sings with genuine depth. They wisely choose numbers with lyrics that stand true to this day, a few of which feature fresh rhymes by guest MCs that further bridge the eras. The track selection is excellent – covering classics by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, Bill Withers, Curtis Mayfield, Donny Hathaway and they also go as deep as Baby Huey & Eugene McDaniels. Includes "Hard Times" with Black Thought, "Compared To What", "Wake Up Everybody" with Common & Melanie Fiona, "Our Generation" feat CL Smooth, "Little Ghetto Boy" feat Black Thought (plus the prelude with Malik Yusef), "Hang On In There", "Wholy Holy", "Shine" and more.

VariousRockin In The USA – Hot 100 Hits Of The 80s ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $9.99 19.99
80s come back, all is forgiven – especially when you sound so great in a collection as cool as this one! Ace Records is an imprint that we've loved for decades in the worlds of soul, rare rock, and R&B – but they've also got a keen ear for all things chartbound, and have served up some excellent pop collections from the 50s and 60s over the years. This time around, they hit the 80s – and bring together 23 tracks that hit the charts big in the early part of the decade – some by artists who were among the biggest of the period, others by folks that are maybe best remembered by these single hits – all given the care, liner notes, and proper showcase that Ace brings to its reissues. In other words, this overstuffed package is way better than some of those schlocky no-name collections on the market – and will have you reveling in the glory of tunes that include "What I Like About You" by The Romantics, "I Need You" by Paul Carrack, "Baby I Lied" by Deborah Allen, "Time After Time" by Cyndi Lauper, "I'm Happy That Love Has Found You" by Jimmy Hall, "Hope You Love Me Like You Say You Do" by Huey Lewis & The News, "I've Done Everything For You" by Rick Springfield, "Our Lips Are Sealed" by The GoGos, "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" by Pat Benatar, "Walking Down Your Street" by The Bangles, "Is It Love" by Mr Mister, "10 9 8" by Face To Face, "No Getting Over Me" by Ronnie Milsap, "ROCK In The USA" by John Cougar Mellencamp, and "The Valley Road" by Bruce Hornsby & The Range.

✨✧ Curtis MayfieldThere's No Place Like America Today ... LP
Curtom, 1975. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great album by Curtis Mayfield – filled with some excellent lesser-known gems! There's No Place Like America was Curtis' scathing testament to the State Of The Union – and it's got a hip political tone that's right up there with the best of his early 70s songwriting – perhaps even more so, as the message is a bit subtler than on other albums, and laid out in this stoner mellow funk vein that's very tasty throughout, and which makes for an extremely unified album! The album includes a version of the cut "Hard Times", which was done earlier by Baby Huey, plus "Blue Monday People", "Love To The People", and "When Seasons Change". Also includes the great sweet love song, "So In Love"! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has unglued seams.)

✨✧ Elaine BrownElaine Brown ... LP
Black Forum/Motown, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A very unusual musical moment in Motown – a set that was issued by their Black Forum label, and which was the second of two albums that Elain Brown recorded while part of the Black Panther Party! This one's even more radical than the first – a very interesting mix of modes, with production by Freddie Perren and Fonce Mizell, and arrangements by the avant jazz legend Horace Tapscott! The sound here is different than Tapscott's own music, but equally righteous at times – folksy, and message-oriented – maybe more acoustic than you'd guess for Motown and the Panthers, with moody songs about lost men, dead soldiers, and helpless babies. Liner notes are by Huey Newton – and titles include "Can't Go Back", " All The Young And Fine Men", "Child In The World", "Little Baby", and "Until We're Free". LP, Vinyl record album
