Barbara AcklinLove Makes A Woman ... LP
Brunswick, 1968. Very Good ... $8.99
Barbara Acklin's first album – and a landmark of Chicago soul that firmly established Acklin as one of the city's best writers and new female singers! Acklin had a classy sound that was different than some of her raw soul sisters in the city – but although she was classy, she also didn't have any of that little girl stuff that you might hear from singers like Denice Chandler or Barbara Mason. Instead, she had an approach that mixed a real soul vocal with more sophisticated material, in a manner that worked well with the evolving blueprint for the Brunswick Chisoul sound. Carl Davis and Eugene Record do a perfect job producing Barbara's songs, all forged nicely into the loping soul groove that set Chicago apart from other cities in the late 60s. Includes the big title track "Love Makes A Woman" – plus "Be By My Side", "Your Sweet Loving", "Come and See Me Baby", and a great cover of "The Look of Love"! LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label promo. Cover has ring & edge wear, old tape on the spine, and some aging.)

✨✧ Barbara AcklinBrunswick Singles – A sides & B sides ... CD
Brunswick/Edsel (UK), Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
As with any soul artist of her era, Barbara Acklin recorded most of her best work on 7" singles. This tasty 25 track set feature 13 rare singles – both a and b-sides full intact (two singles share the same b sides, so the set's only got 25 cuts instead of 26). A number of these cuts are on LPs, but there's a number of other ones that aren't – and Barbara's lovely voice makes all tracks a great treat anyway! Titles include "Fool, Fool, Fool", "Just Ain't No Love", "Be By My Side", "After You", "Someone Else's Arms", "Is It Me", "I'm Living With A Memory", "I Can't Do My Thing", "Lady, Lady, Lady", "Love You Are Mine Today", and "Come & See Me Baby".

Gene ChandlerGet Down With The Get Down – Best Of The Chi Sound Years 1978-1983 ... CD
Chi Sound/West Side (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $12.99
Gene Chandler's one of those artists who never fails to surprise us. First known for his big early hits for Vee Jay – including "Duke Of Earl" – Gene stayed strong over many many years, shifting labels from time to time, continuing to grow as a singer and move through a range of different styles all handled quite well. This set offers an oft-lost side of Gene's career – his later recordings for Carl Davis' Chi-Sound label, home to a number of older Chicago soul artists who worked with Davis earlier at other labels. As with other singers on the label – such as Walter Jackson – Gene here moves into a smooth modern soul vein, mixing uptempo and midtempo tunes with ease, showing a sophisticated vocal style that you'd hardly ever expect from his earlier work! There's some real gems on this set – which features some of the best moments from Gene's years at Chi-Sound, including a few unissued cuts and at least one 12" track. 15 cuts in all, including "I'll Be There", in a previously unissued duet with Barbara Acklin, plus "Skate (aka Miss Crazy Legs)", "Does She Have A Friend", "I Keep Coming Back", "Time Is A Thief", "All About The Paper", "I'll Make The Living If You Make The Loving Worthwhile", "When You're #1", "Do What Comes Natural", "Love Is The Answer", and "Get Down", in both 12" and demo versions.

Dynamic TintsPackage Of Love (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Twinight, Late 60s. Good ... $8.99
A great lost group single on Twinight – with Chisoul production by Syl Johnson! The group's got a very tight harmony sound, and should have been bigger – but to our knowledge they only cut a few singles for the Twinight imprint at the end of the 60s. This one's an excellent 2-parter, with a leaping loping Chisoul groove, and a riff that almost reminds us of Barbara Acklin's "Am I The Same Girl"! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has some wear.)

Maryann Farra & Satin SoulNever Gonna Leave You (with bonus track) ... CD
Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $9.99
A 70s indie club classic – and the only album we've ever seen from Maryann Farra & Satin Soul! The group have a sound that's equal parts Brunswick Chicago soul and New York early disco groove – a combination that's brought out even more by the production talents of disco maestro Tony Valor and Chi-soul genius Eugene Record! The tunes groove along in a really rich style of arrangement – often using sweeping strings over tighter rhythms – sometimes hitting the loping midtempo groove you'd expect from Brunswick records at the time, yet also going for some of the faster, freer rhythms that were cropping up on the east coast indies of the time. Some tracks have a tight dancefloor feel – like "Never Gonna Leave You", "Do Those Little Things", and "Just A Little Timing" – while others have a beautiful soul groove – like "You Got To Be The One" and "Living In The Footsteps of Another Girl" – which both have a sound that feels like it was lifted from a lost Barbara Acklin or Chi-Lites album! The set also includes a female soul remake of "Stoned Out Of My Mind" that's almost worth the price of the record alone! CD also features a bonus cut – the single version of "Never Gonna Leave You".

VariousBrunswick Revisit – Selected By Tatsuo Sunaga ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
A host of great soul cuts from Brunswick Records – all pulled together by Sunaga T! Sunaga has one of the grooviest, most joyous styles of all the Japanese DJs we can think of – and he really brings that approach into play here with some wonderful numbers from Brunswick – most of which are Chicago soul tunes from right at the end of the 60s or start of the 70s – usually produced with that soaring, leaping groove that was big on the Windy City at the time. Vocals are wonderful as the grooves – and titles include "We Need Love" by The Directions, "Stoned Out Of My Mind" by The Chi-Lites, "Love Land" by Lost Generation, "Who You Really Are" by Fred Hughes, "Honey Baby" by Ginji James, "I'll Bake Me A Man" by Barbara Acklin, "Don't Say Boodbye" by First Love, "Whatcha Gonna Do About Me" by Jackie Wilson, "How Insensitive" by Young Holt Unlimited, and "Love Hangover" by Touch.

VariousReadymade Digs Brunswick ... CD
Brunswick/Solid (Japan), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $13.99
The Readymade crew turn their talents to a host of tracks from the legendary Brunswick Records – serving up a really joyous mix of Chicago soul that definitely lives up to the best side of their sound! Brunswick soul is usually a lot more upbeat and positive than that of some of their contemporaries – filled with pride and power that really comes through in the grooves chosen for this excellent set – a mix of vocal and instrumental cuts that really remind us why we love Windy City soul from this time so much! Titles include "Where Would I Go" by Ginji James, "California Montage" by Young Holt Unlimited, "Stop Look & Listen To Your Heart" by Barbara Acklin, "Whispers" by Erma Franklin, "Sunny" by Young Holt Trio, "Love The One You're With" by Herman, "Girl I Need You" by The Artistics, "I Had It All The Time" by Tyrone Davis, "This Love Is Real" by Jackie Wilson, "Uptight" by Count Basie & Jackie Wilson, and "Sugar Sugar" by Willie Henderson.

✨✧ Gene ChandlerBrunswick Complete Singles Collection ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful work from our favorite stretch of music from the legendary Gene Chandler – an artist who started out on Vee Jay Records, but really hit his prime here at Brunswick! Chandler was a key singer in the early years of soul – and some of his first recordings had strong appeal to doo wop and R&B crowds – but by the time of this set, Gene was really moving into some more mature, more sophisticated styles – an approach that easily rivals that of Chicago soul contemporaries Jerry Butler and Walter Jackson! Chandler's often a bit more upbeat and swinging than either of those – especially Jackson – but here, he shares a similar open, emotive quality – much more adult than before, and delivered with a confidence that's very different than earlier weepy pop. A number of cuts here are duets with the great Barbara Acklin – and titles include "Will I Find You", "Show Me The Way To Go", "The Girl Don't Care", "Love Won't Start", "There Was A Time", "Teacher Teacher", "Anywhere But Nowhere", "This Bitter Earth", "Familiar Footsteps", "My Love", "There Goes The Lover", and the sublime "Suicide" – maybe one of our favorite Gene Chandler tracks ever!

✨✧ VariousSoul From The Cities Vol 2 – Chicago ... CD
Richmond/Demon (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nice little collection of Chicago soul – featuring mostly Carl Davis-produced tracks from the Brunswick and Chi-Sound labels, stretching back to the late 60s, and running up until the end of the 70s. There's a good mix of styles on here – but the work is all strongly linked by Davis' high level of quality in the studio, and by his willingness to keep a nice groove in a track, no matter what the pace. Titles include "There It Is" by Lionel Hampton, "Oh Boy" by Dana Valery, "It's Cool" by Walter Jackson, "Lady Lady Lady" by Barbara Acklin, "Wrapped, Tied, & Tangled" by Lavern Baker, "Especially For You" by Manchild, "Come To My Party" by The Impressions, "The Girl Turned Me On" by Jackie Wilson, "Windy City Theme" by Windy City Orchestra, and "Love Uprising" by Otis Leavill.

✨✧ VariousMuro King Of Diggin – Diggin' Brunswick ... CD
Brunswick/Octave (Japan), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
DJ Muro mixes it up with the catalog of legendary soul label Brunswick Records – really digging deep into output of the mighty imprint – to come up with a wicked pastiche of funky tunes that includes bits of 40 tracks in all! The mix is more complicated than some of Muro's other outings – and while he still leaves in the best core of each tune, he also weaves them together in a wonderful way that draws definite strands together in Brunswick production, instrumentation, and songwriting – a wonderful tribute to the Chicago soul genius that flourished on the label at the end of the 60s and start of the 70s. The package features way too many snippets to mention here – but includes work from Ginji James, The Lost Generation, Tyron Davis, Bohannon, Lost Generation, Gregory James Edition, Fred Hughes, The Chi-Lites, Erma Franklin, The Eliminators, Exit 9, Gene Chandler, The Directions, Barbara Acklin, Young Holt Unlimited, and many more!

✨✧ Ruby AndrewsEverybody Saw You ... LP
Zodiac/Everland (Austria), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest female soul records ever to come from Chicago – a killer set of work from the legendary Ruby Andrews! Ruby's a hell of a talent that should have been huge at a national level – possessed with a deep soul style that matched the best from Betty Lavette or Mavis Staples, but often set up in more sophisticated arrangements too – in a mode that worked perfectly in a "double-edged sword" model that was often employed by other Chicago singers, like Barbara Acklin or Patty Drew. The album was issued as a follow-up to Ruby's massive cut "Casanova", which is a perfect example of this style – with Ruby's raw vocals over the top, some loping string arrangements underneath, and the whole thing working perfectly together in an amazing blend of styles! The whole album's incredibly strong, and other tracks include "Casanova 70", "You Made A Believer Out Of Me", "Tit For Tat", and "Can You Get Away". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousBrunswick Bubblers – Presented By Gilles Peterson ... CD
Brunswick/Octave (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The legendary Gilles Peterson turns his magical ears to the catalog of Brunswick Records – and comes up with some of the label's hippest tunes of the 60s and 70s! Brunswick is best known for its famous soul hits of the late 60s and early 70s, but Peterson goes much deeper to come up with overlooked gems that are then laid out in a way that really makes them resonate strongly together – at a level that really illustrates the unified groove of the label! Brunswick often worked with a tight array of producers, arrangers, and session players – and Peterson finds key links between these tunes, often in surprising places – which makes the collection a real delight once you start stepping through it. Titles include "Keep On Dancing" by Bohannon, "Inner City Blues" by The Chi-Lites, "Harlem" by Willie Henderson, "This Is The Lost Generation" by The Lost Generation, "Ain't No Sunshine" by Gregory James Edition, "Light My Fire" by Jackie Wilson, "Disco Boogie" by Total Eclipse, "Will I Find Love" by Gene Chandler, "This Love Is Real" by Dana Valery, and "Go With Love" by Barbara Acklin.
