Brief EncounterWe Want To Play (with bonus track) ... LP
Dream/Athens Of The North (UK), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
An obscure bit of boogie from Brief Encounter – a southern soul group known best for their mid 70s sides for the Sound Stage Seven label, stepping out here in a completely different 80s groove! Most tracks are upbeat and dancefloor funky – plenty of bass on the bottom and some sweet electric keys – but often used in a way that's more in a 70s ensemble funk mode than the keyboards you'd hear on other early 80s indie soul. There's a warmth here that's quite nice, and most tracks feature the larger group harmonizing on vocals – in a way that sounds especially sweet on the mellower tracks. And while the recording quality of the original record is sometimes a bit muted, the group themselves sound plenty great – really bouncing along wonderfully with a soaring groove and a sense of tightness that goes beyond their indie roots! Titles include "Sweet Tender Loving", "We Want To Play For You", "Now I Know I Love You", "Rocking", "Since I Met You Girl", "Just For Love", "Open Up Your Heart", and "If You Want My Love". Features the bonus track "Always". LP, Vinyl record album

Lurlean HunterLonesome Gal ... LP
RCA, 1956. Very Good- ... $4.99
Moody set of vocals recorded by this obscure Chicago singer. Lurlean got her start at the classy south side Club DeLisa, home to Sun Ra, and a host of other Chicago talents – but by the time of this recording, she'd moved downtown, and had become a classy smoky voiced singer with a good talent for more mature material. This hard to find early session features backing by Al Nevins, and arrangements by Quincy Jones and Marion Evans. Tracks include "Brief Encounter", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Alone Together", and "A Stranger In Town". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear, aging, and a Meet The Girls sticker.)

VariousMessage From TK – It's A Miami Modern Soul World ... CD
TK/Solid (Japan), Late 70s. New Copy ... $22.99
A soulful message from the 70s – served up here on a collection that focuses on a mighty nice side of the TK Records label from back in the day! TK hit big fame with its Miami spin on disco in the mid 70s, but the label also had a great ear for other sorts of soul music too – and here, the focus is on the warmer, more sophisticated modern soul tracks that marked their output away from the chart hits – work created in the south, but with a hip vibe that resonates strongly with the best work in New York, Philly, or other northern cities. The tracks are all hand-picked by DJ Ryuhei The Man – who also does his own edits of a few tracks – and the set also features some rare singles from artists who never recorded a full album for TK. Titles include "All This Love That I'm Givin" by Gwen McCrae, "I Like My Birdie" by Leno Phillips, "Keep Her Happy" by Phillip Wright, "Never Had A Love So Good" by Charles Johnson, "Bessie" by JBs Wedge, "It's Your Sweet Love" by Jimmy Bo Horne, "The Way We Life" by Raw Soul Express, "Where Is The Love" by Betty Wright, "Listen To My Heartbeat" by Little Beaver, "Human (Ryuhei The Man express 45 edit)" by Brief Encounter, "What Am I Gonna Do (Ryuhei The Man Miami 45 edit)" by Reid Inc, and "Be With Me (Ryuhei The Man Miami 45 edit)" by Milton Wright.

✨✧ Elephant's MemoryElephant's Memory (1969 – Buddah) ... CD
Buddah/Intermusic (Spain), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pretty wild set from Elephants Memory – one that's as trippy as you'd guess from the group's image on the cover – and equally collaborative too! There's a strong mix of male and female vocals here – over guitar and rhythms that move effortlessly between blues rock and psych – all with a pretty loose, freewheeling sense of production – but enough tightness to make some of the chorus moments snap out nicely! Wes Farrell produced, but seems to really let the band do their thing – and in addition to songs written by group members Stan Bronstein, Michal Shapiro, and Richard Sussman – there also seems to be some song contributions from Tony Visconti too. Titles include "Hot Dog Man", "Talkin A Walk", "RIP", "Jungle Gym At The Zoo", "Don't Put Me On Trial No More", "Crossroads Of The Stepping Stones", "Band Of Love", and "Brief Encounter". CD

✨✧ VariousKraut Jazz Futurism – A New Wave Of German Bands Inspired By Krautrock, Afrobeat, Jazz, & Electronica (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Kryptox (Germany), 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A great little collection that's everything it promises in the title – a survey of the current German underground, with a focus on the best bands who've been inspired by the styles of the past! Apart from Karl Hector & The Malcouns, all the other work here is new to our ears – and the set's not just a collection of other releases, but also features a fair bit of debut tracks that show up here for the first time ever – and some others that never had anything other than a brief digital history online! Most of these artists really know how to take off from their inspirations – not just recreate music from the past, but use elements of modes like jazz funk or afro beat in great new settings – really opening up the German scene with the same sort of excitement we felt when we first encountered Compost Records many years back. Titles include "Der Inder" by Karaba, "Magnolia Tree" by Salomea, "Space Station" by David Nesselhauf, "Dick Schaffrath" by CAR, "Acrasian Beat" by Sissi Rada, "The Little Giant" by Stimming x Lambert, "Orange Man" by Karl Hector & The Malcouns, "El Fuego" by Toresch, "Night In Bacalar" by Keope, and "Balanphontanz In Drei Schuben" by Nicklas Wandt. LP, Vinyl record album
