✨✧ Hamilton BohannonBrunswick Complete Singles Collection ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
Killer cuts from the legendary Hamilton Bohannon – an artist who first broke big on the Brunswick label with a really unique approach to a groove! Bohannon's cuts were always funky, but never straight funk – and instead, he had this minimalist way of layering together elements that was definitely a huge influence on later disco and club – but heard here in a style that's much more raw and down to earth! The package offers up 23 tracks that come from 45s that Bohannon did for the Brunswick label – some of which have different mixes, and all of which are razor-sharp groovers that are sure to please any fan of funk. Titles include "Run It On Down Mr DJ (parts 1 & 2)", "Come Winter", "Happy Feeling", "Gittin Off", "Have A Good Day", "Bohannon's Beat", "East Coast Groove", "The Fat Man", "Red Bone", "Truck Stop", "Stop & Go", "Save Their Souls", and "The Pimp Walk".

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.

VariousFree Soul Windy City – Brunswick Treasure ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
A stellar collection of work from the legendary Brunswick Records – put together with the special vibe of the Free Soul series! The tunes here are upbeat and soaring – not club or disco, but earlier soul numbers that sparkle with this sort of positive energy – a vibe that's very much the best side of the Brunswick Records approach of the late 60s and early 70s – as the imprint picked up Chicago soul, and gave it a whole new sort of groove! Yet not all this work is Chicago-based, despite the title – and the set's got a really nice range of Brunswick cuts that includes "We Need Love" by The Directions, "Loveland" by The Lost Generation, "Broken Home" by Ben Monroe, "It Only Happens When I Look At You" by Jackie Wilson, "When Temptation Comes" by The Chi-Lites, "Following You" by Dana Valery, "Here Is A Heart" by Ginji James, "I Always Wanted To Be In The Band" by Step By Step, and "Love The One You're With" by Herman. 24 tracks – and over 80 minutes of music!

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.

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 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!

Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sublime female soul from one of the hippest labels we can think of – a company who was always taking a chance, always trying something new, and always willing to give exposure to some great new artists! This cool collection is definitely the best side of Brunswick Records on the Chicago scene – as it features a few better-known singers, mixed with lots more artists who never issued a full album for the label – but who cut some wonderful singles that are even better than some of the imprint's bigger hits! There's a stunning array of greatness here – from sweet soul numbers that lope along in a warm groove, to badass tracks that have a funkier vibe – all handled by the usual top-shelf talents that made bigger Brunswick artists so strong. Titles include "My Baby's Gone Away" by Shirley Karol, "Walk On My Side" by Jackie Ross, "Caution" by September, "Love Is" by The Promises, "Where Do You Go" by Lyn Roman, "Raining Teardrops" by The Demures, "It Hurts To See You Happy" by Sylvia St Claire, "What Kind Of Girl" by Demetriss Trapp, "What Did I Do" by The Sweethearts, "Memories & A Broken Heart" by Linda Hopkins, "The One Who Really Loves You" by Sugar Pie De Santo, "Love Had To Be You" by Jean Shy, "That's What You Are To Me" by Tracie Robbins, "The 3rd Movement" by Sunni Nash, and "Higher & Higher" by Erma Franklin.

Majestic male soul from Brunswick Records – the label who recorded some of the best material ever from singers like Gene Chandler and Jackie Wilson, and who also gave lots of other singers a great shot too! This set moves way past obvious Brunswick hits, and includes loads of lesser-known singles that are totally great – some funky, some laidback, and lots of them very very groovy – in that totally hip Chicago soul mode that Brunswick did so well. There's a number of artists here who only recorded briefly for Brunswick, before hitting fame elsewhere – and others who are remembered for the few rare gems they left behind at the label – all brought together here in a wonderful 25 track set. There's plenty of surprises throughout – and titles include "Doing The Feeling" by Alvin Cash, "Contract On Your Love" by Chuck Bernard, "I'll Bet You" by Billy Butler, "Sweet Sweet Revenge" by Alvin Valentine, "Hold On" by Marvin Smith, "This Melody Is For My Baby" by Ben Monroe, "Sweet Temptation" by Isaac Hayes, "Wrapped Up In Your Warm & Tender Love" by Richard Parker, "A Mean Thing" by Donald Height, "Just A Little Misunderstanding" by Johnny Williams, "You Got Me Walking" by Cicero Blake, "Once You Fall In Love" by Eddie Mcloyd, "Just A Thing Called Love" by John Parker, and "You Are" by Bobby Reed.

Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great group soul from the wonderful Brunswick Records – and a sweet selection that goes way beyond the hits and the bigger groups who recorded for the label! Sure, Brunswick is known for its big groups from Chicago – who were some of the best of their time – but the label also recorded a lot of up-and-comers who were totally great too – but who never got to put together a full album for the label! Lots of those groups are collected here – in a wonderful collection that's filled with soaring harmonies, deep soul leads, and some totally groovy arrangements that are in the best Brunswick ultra-hip style of the early 70s. Titles include "Chickens" by Complaments, "Purple Haze" by Johnny Jones & King Casuals, "Lonely Street" by The Admirations, "I'll Take You Just As You Come" by The Nialations, "Until You came Along" by The Visitors, "I Think I'll Cry Out Loud" by The Realistics, "The Sweetest Thing" by Channel 3, "Sing A Ling" by The Cooperettes, "Don't Fail Me Now" by The Symphonics, "A Strange Way" by The Loreleis, "Don't Take It Out On This World" by Adam's Apples, "Cowboys To Girls" by Jalynne Sound, "He's Got Your Number" by The Demures, and "Stay With Me Baby" by BW & The Next Edition.

Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An incredibly rich collection of work from the legendary Brunswick and Dakar Records labels – and one of the first to really get at the labels' rich legacy of 7" singles that were never issued on any sort of full length albums! The Brunswick sound was a powerhouse in the late 60s and early 70s – a force that saw big records from The Chi-Lites, Jackie Wilson, Artistics, and others – yet the company also recorded a heck of a lot more music too – all of which was every bit as great as the hits, from the grooves at the bottom, to the tight arrangements in the middle, and the fantastic range of vocals on the top! This series finally gets at digging into all the many artists who never issued full albums on Brunswick or Dakar Records – and this first volume features 24 tracks that include "One Two Three Hamilton Street" by The Equations, "The Sweetest Thing" by Channel 3, "Stay With Me Baby" by BW & The Next Edition, "Where Our Love Has Gone" by Ronnie LaShannon, "Soul Strut" by Floyd Smith, "Let's TCB" by Richard Parker, "Contract On Your Love" by Chuck Bernard, "Funky Fatso" by The Aqua Sonics, "Dynamite" by John Freeman, "Forever & A Day" by Wales Wallace, "Turn Me Loose" by Donnie Vann, "You're My Sweet" by The Realistics, and "Falling In Love" by The Complaments.

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!

Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful work from the later years of Brunswick Records – a time when the company briefly re-emerged as a surprising force on the hipper dancefloors of the time – thanks to a great run of funky club, soulful disco, and seminal boogie tracks! Brunswick didn't issue many albums at the time – and they were quite far from their hit years of the early 70s – but their 12" output from the period is wonderful, and way more than just the usual throwaway work for the discos – done with a real sense of quality, and a devotion to both funk and soul undercurrents that really keep things strong. Titles on this great 3rd volume include "Don't Say Goodnight" and "Love Me Today" by First Love, instrumental and vocal versions of "I Wanna Boogie With You" by Charlie Singleton & Stargasm, "Jammin Big Guitar" and "Rockin Big Guitar" by Vaughan Mason, vocal and instrumental versions of "Word Up" by Legacy, vocal and instrumental versions of "Gimme The Funk" by Charade, "Rock The House (parts 1 & 2)" by Elite, and the fantastic groover "You Are The One" by AM/FM.

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.

A fantastic mix of music from the mighty Brunswick Records – tracks that are mostly from that 70s point when its artists were picking up a fair bit of funk in their soul, all served up together in a continuous blend by the mighty Japanese DJ Ryuhei The Man! These aren't the Brunswick hits, but the lesser-known groovers – including a number from that mid 70s point when the company was really starting to shift into clubby modes, yet still hanging on to all the deeper soul modes of before! Titles include "I'm Sorry" by Sound Investment, "I Always Wanted To Be In The Band" by Step By Step, "I Love You Love You Completely" and "Jive Man" by Exit 9, "Disco Boogie" and "Be True To Yourself" by Total Eclipse, "Just A Little Timing" and "Never Gonna Leave You" by Maryann Farra & Satin Soul, "Energizer" by Touch, "Love Changed His Face" by Ginji James, "Said You Didn't Love Him" by Strutt, "Love Me All Night" by Young & Company, and "Following You" by Dana Valery.

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

Gene ChandlerThere Was A Time (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Brunswick/Demon (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
A soaring, burning set from Gene Chandler – completely different than his early hits, and a key point in the transformation of Chicago soul in the 60s! Gene's always had a heck of a great vocal range – and he really gets a chance to use it to best effect on this album of jaunty and groovy little tracks – tunes that bounce around with that majestic Chi-soul style of the late 60s, all produced to perfection by the great Carl Davis! The sound is sublime – a pulling together of so many different strands into one bold, proud sound – sophisticated yet soulful, and with a rhythmic component that really sets the album apart from the pack. And even when Gene's singing tunes that you may know from other singers' hits, he does a tremendous job of transforming them – recasting them into his more mature groove, and managing to funky them up in ways we wouldn't expect! Evidence to this is the album's great version of James Brown's "There Was A Time" – which is followed by loads of other great cuts, including "Cowboys To Girls", "Fooling Around", "Pit Of Loneliness", "Never Gonna Give You Up", and "Laughter To Tears".

Chi-Lites(For God's Sake) Give More Power To The People ... LP

Seminal work from one of the 70s greatest groups! The band had always been great at love songs and uptempo numbers – but this record has them moving into more righteous area, picking up on some of the more socially conscious soul of their generation that had been working its way up the charts. The album features excellent production by Chi-Lite Eugene Record, who also wrote a lot of the material – plus arrangements by Tom Tom and Sonny Sanders. Great stuff all around, with the righteous social tunes "(For God's Sake) Give More Power to The People", "Trouble's A Comin", and "We Are Neighbors" – plus classic love songs "Have You Seen Her" and "Love Uprising", which are still kind of the band's strongest point. Loads more great stuff on this one, the album that helped the second wave of Chicago soul break out into the international market! LP, Vinyl record album

Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the biggest records ever from The Chi-Lites – thanks to the "Oh Girl" title hit that's referenced on the cover! But apart from that ballad classic, the record's actually got a heck of a lot more to offer – some incredible harmony soul tracks that show that even during their hit years, The Chi-Lites were one of those groups who could still stay true to their roots – and still come up with amazing tunes again and again! Mainman Eugene Record is at the helm producing and writing most of the tunes on the set – and some of the best numbers have that little gentle groove that was the best Chi-soul contribution to the sound of the 70s – that lilt or bounce from the 60s, turned towards slightly more sophisticated modes for the new generation. Titles include "Being In Love", "Love Is", "Coldest Days Of My Life", "Living In the Footsteps Of Another Man", "Ain't Too Much Of Nothing", and "A Lonely Man" – and a cover of "Inner City Blues". CD also features the bonus track "The Coldest Days Of My Life (part 1)". CD

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".

Orlando Marin is probably mostly known as an arranger, and a leader from the earlier years of the New York scene – but during the Latin Soul years he cut this fantastic set for Decca – easily one of the best of the all-great Latin sides the label was doing at the time! Lyrics are often in English, and sung with a good deal of soul by Eddie Revere – and Orlando's group crackles with the intensity of the Joe Cuba Sextet – thanks to a timbales-heavy sound in the lead, lots of dark piano on the bottom, and some trumpety flourishes on the top – all with a nice dose of jazz in the mix. Soul-based titles include "Sugarfoot Baby", "The Hustler", and "Out Of My Mind" – and other titles include "Eenie Meenie Chow Chow", "Chickie's Cookie", "La Lengua", "Palo Monte", and "No Puede Ser".

Sound InvestmentSound Investment ... CD
Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
Tight funky soul from this really great 70s combo – a group with a sound that's much more like the funky 45 underground of the early part of the decade than you might guess from the date of the record! The style is a mix of deep soul with funky undercurrents – and some vocals are by an excellent female singer who manages to soar strongly, yet still have this raspy edge that's really personal. A male singer comes into the lead on other tracks – and creates this multi-voiced quality that really matches the diversity of the grooves – especially when he tries out some slightly witty bits. Every cut's an original, and there's some really well-penned tracks on the set – not throwaway club tracks, nor filler for a full record – but well-conceived numbers that really show that Sound Investment's the real deal, all the way through. Titles include "Woe Is Me", "Funky Skunk", "Spare Ribs & Fried Chicken", "I'm Sorry", "Our First Child", and "Dirty Man". CD

Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A hard soul groove from the great Jackie Wilson – and a record that really has the singer coming into his own! The music is tight, upbeat, and mighty rocking right from the start – and Wilson takes off with these tremendous vocals that are undeniably some of the greatest in early soul music – very much on a par with the best from Clyde McPhatter or Solomon Burke! And unlike some of Wilson's other albums of the time, there's almost no pop or ballad material at all – just great groovers like "Baby Workout", "You Only Live Once", "Cute Little Girls", "Shake! Shake! Shake!", "Love Train", "Say You Will", and "The Kickapoo". CD features 8 bonus tracks too – including "The New Breed", "Haunted House", "Call Her Up", "I'm Travelin On", "I'm Going Crazy", "Baby Get It", and "He's A Fool". CD

✨✧ Jackie WilsonI Get The Sweetest Feeling (plus bonus track) ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99
Pure greatness from the second chapter of Jackie Wilson on Brunswick Records – that great stretch when the singer had some mighty fresh backings from the best soul talents Chicago had to offer – which really helped him set loose with a whole new groove! Wilson's vocals have all the dynamic energy of his early soul years, but he also gets an added level of sophistication in the arrangements too – a vibe that's almost Chess/Cadet at its best, handled by arrangers Carl Davis, Willie Henderson, and Sonny Sanders. There's a few ballads that show a more mature, adult side of Wilson – mixed with some soaring, spacious numbers that are mighty nice too – and even the familiar tunes are nicely changed up by the work of the arrangers and the singer. Titles include "You Keep Me Hangin' On", "I Get The Sweetest Feeling", "You Brought About A Change In Me", "Growin Tall", and "Since You Showed Me How To Be Happy". CD features the bonus track "The Who Who Song". CD

Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $13.99
Jackie Wilson takes over the Copa – bringing his early soul styles to the New York elite – but a few years before The Supremes and other Motown artists got their chance! The album's got Wilson acting with great poise and grace, but still losing none of his vocal power at all – soaring, stretching on some numbers that begin with familiar standards, then move into more of Wilson's hits – kind of a progression from uptown to the party crowd over the course of the set. Sy Oliver handles the backings, and brings in some nice jazzy elements at times – and titles include "A Perfect Day", "Love For Sale", "Lonely Teardrops", "Doggin Around", "To Be Loved", "The Way I Am", and "I Love Them All".

Brunswick, 1968. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A really wonderful collaboration between two very unlikely partners – and a great album that really stands out as some of the best work from both artists in the 60s! Count Basie's group gets hard and soulful on the record – and even a little funky on the best cuts – and Jackie Wilson is in a raw bluesy vocal style that recalls the best moments of his earlier Brunswick singles – a great edge that makes the whole Basie groove sound even more hard-hitting than ever. Benny Carter arranged, but the groove is more a hard-edged Count Basie mode mixed with Brunswick soul styles – and Jackie blows it out over the top on great versions of "Funky Broadway", "Ode To Billie Joe", "I Was Made To Love Her", "Even When You Cry", and "Respect". Also features a version of "For Your Precious Love" that was a bit of a hit for the pair! LP, Vinyl record album

Brunswick, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $3.99
One of a great run of grooves from the legendary team of bassist Eldee Young and drummer Redd Holt – a smoking batch of instrumentals done in the best Chicago soul style of the time! Young and Holt got their start in the early trio of Ramsey Lewis – but here, they've fully expanded to their "Unlimited" mode with larger backings from Sonny Sanders and Willie Henderson – which often feature a tippling soulful piano out front of some larger Chicago soul charts with a mighty nice groove. The album follows their hit Soulful Strut set, and has a very similar feel – with a mix of instrumental readings of soul hits, and a few sweet originals too. Titles include the standout cut "Young and Holtful", a great cover of "Light My Fire", which has been sampled more than once over the years – and the tracks "When I'm Not Around", "I Wish You Love", "Just A Melody", "Gotta Find Me A Lover", and "Give It Away".

Brunswick, Late 60s. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A completely charming vocal session from Louis Armstrong – done in the later pop years of his life, but a record that's not nearly as well known as his bigger hits for Kapp! Louis works with arrangements from Dick Jacobs – the Brunswick arranger who first provided the early charts for Jackie Wilson – and the style is kind of a 60s update of 20s styles – that retro mode that was showing up in the decade as a few artists like Armstrong were reinvented for the younger generation. But despite the setting, Louis is wonderful throughout – with that honest, raspy tone of later years – and just a bit of trumpet to jazz things up amidst the pop. Titles include "I Will Wait For You", "Sunrise Sunset", "Rosie", "Willkommen", "I Believe", "The Happy Time", and "Talk To The Animals". LP, Vinyl record album

Brunswick/West Side (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Walter Jackson was one of the greatest voices of the Chicago soul scene – from his early recordings on the Okeh label to the later material included on this tasty set! During the late 70s, Walter recorded some very nice albums for the Chisound subsidiary of Brunswick and 20th Century – and by that time, he'd changed his style into a smooth, easy, modern one – drawing a bit on the style of Teddy Pendergrass, but still keeping true to his classic roots as a Chicago "Iceman". The material showed the sophistication of earlier years – but also reflected the changing face of American songwriting, and the non-stop talents of great Chicago and Philly songwriters. We really dig this set – and find it to be an incredible batch of oft-overlooked smooth soul tracks with a very mellow sound. Titles include "The Meeting", "I'll Come Back", "Love Woke Me Up This Morning", "It's Cool", "Touching In The Dark", "And If I Had", "Love Is Lovelier", and "Come To Me". 20 cuts in all – and a great selection from some of Walter's obscure albums!

An overlooked gem from blues legend T Bone Walker – recorded for the Brunswick Records label in Chicago, but cooked up with some gritty swamp production from the great Huey P Meux – who steeps Walker's guitar in lots of Texas and Louisiana elements, which makes for a much heavier record than you'd expect! The album's not just T-Bone working for a soul label – and instead stands strongly with some of Walker's best material from these later years – given very respectful presentation, and just the right sort of accompaniment for his sharp guitar lines and raspy vocals. Titles include "I Ain't Your Fool No More", "I Don't Be Jiving", "Hate To See You Go", "Treat Your Daddy Well", "Let Your Hair Down Baby", "Old Time Used To Be", and "It Ain't No Right In You". CD

As with other Brunswick albums, there's a few nuggets here that might show up elsewhere, but the album's got plenty of greatness to love on its own, too – with tracks that include "Toby", "There Will Never Be Any Peace", "I Like To Live The Love", "You Got To Be The One", "The Sound Of Lonely", "I Lied", "That's How Long", and "Gettin On Outta Town".

There's as much funk on the record as there is the deep soul you'd expect from the Franklin family, and Erma's vocals are incredible – equally at home with the original tracks on the record, as well as some late 60s hits that are nicely soulized by the boys in the band!

Brunswick/Crimson (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A spectacular run of music from the great Jackie Wilson – a 3CD set that features 60 tracks in all – with a heavy dose of both of Jackie's chapters in soul music for the Brunswick label! Wilson started out recording for Brunswick in New York – where he brought a new level of power to the pre-soul years, learned from his roots in R&B – but fused into a more sophisticated style that had a huge impact on many others to rise in soul during the 60s! Then, during the middle of that decade, he moved over to work in Chicago – where help from Carl Davis and other key Brunswick talents gave Wilson's magnificent vocals a whole new groove – and a way to keep on going strongly all the way to the 70s. This great set documents all those years, and is overflowing with great cuts – titles that include "3 Days 1 Hour 30 Minutes", "Soul Galore", "New Girl In Town", "You Left The Fire Burning", "I Can Feel Those Vibrations This Love Is Real", "Just Be Sincere", "Love Uprising", "Whatcha Gonna Do About Love", "You Brought About A Change In Me", "Just Call My Name", "To Make A Big Man Cry", "No Pity In The Naked City", "I Get The Sweetest Feeling", "Reet Petite", "Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher & Higher", "The New Breed", "Light My Fire", "The Tear Of The Year", "Talk That Talk", and "Doggin Around".

Excellent early material by The Chi-Lites – work that instantly soars above that of most of their contemporaries – with that incredible Windy City soul sound forged by the group's Eugene Record and producer Carl Davis! The groove is wonderful – free and easygoing, yet tight and right on the money too – lighter than the dancefloor styles of Detroit, a bit more sophisticated too – yet never apt to fall into all of the overly-emotive styles of the east coast too. This balance is what makes the group so wonderful – and really comes through on this early album – a treasure trove of songs penned by Eugene Record too! Titles include "Let Me Be The Man My Daddy Was", "Give It Away", "What Do I Wish For", "My Whole World Ended", "24 Hours Of Sadness", and "To Change My Love".

There's a freshness here that few other groups could ever hope to match – lots of new material, penned by group leader Eugene Record – and these wicked arrangements by Record and Sonny Sanders – often put together with this gentle undercurrent of funk that kicks things along from the bottom, yet still saves plenty of space up top for the group's sublime harmonies! The approach is quite different than modes that east coast vocal groups were using at the time – and even different than Detroit, too – a really sophisticated blend of styles that shows the Windy City soul scene at its best. The whole thing's great – no filler at all – and titles include "Give It Away", "I Like Your Lovin", "Are You My Woman?", "Let Me Be The Man My Daddy Was", and "You're No Longer A Part Of My Heart".

✨✧ Jackie WilsonHigher & Higher (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Brunswick/Demon (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A wonderful little album from Jackie Wilson – one that helped him redefine his sound and save his career! Jackie's earlier work for Brunswick was a mish-mash of styles that ranged from raw R&B to smooth supper-club jazz to silly novelty numbers, all of which had gotten pretty stale by the mid 60s. Elsewhere at Brunswick, though, things were really popping during the time – as Carl Davis was turning the label's Chicago offices into a hotbed of soul, forged in the newer hipper styles of the Chisoul scene. Davis got Wilson into the Chicago scene for this album – had him working with arranger Sonny Sanders and director Gerald Sims – to create a wonderful batch of strident soul tunes that perfectly embody the loping Chisoul groove that was Davis' real legacy in soul music during the 60s. The prime example of this is the title cut "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher & Higher" – which became a runaway hit that put Wilson back on the map I the soul business. The rest of the album's just as great, though, and includes loads of solid numbers like "Soulville", "I've Lost You", "Those Heartaches", and "I'm The One To Do It". LP, Vinyl record album

Young & Company were an obscure New Jersey group who struck big momentarily with the single "I Like What You're Doing To Me", and got a brief chance to cut this one and only album for Brunswick as a follow-up. The album's an interesting one, because it came at a time when the last-gasping Brunswick was showing a real talent for cutting underground cuts – mostly issued on 12" singles, and rarely drawn out to a full LP like this – but at a level that really makes this album a lost gem! There's kind of a strong roller skating groove on the best cuts – moving along at a good midtempo pace with compressed instrumentation on guitar and keyboards, never too over the top, and definitely not disco. You can hear that to best effect on the big hit "I Like What You're Doing To Me", but the album's got plenty of other nice cuts, like "Strut Your Stuff", "Checking You Out", "Love Me All Night", and "Mellow Mood".

Amazing stuff from bassist Eldee Young and drummer Isaac "Red" Holt! At the time of this release, the pair had already risen to great fame as the rhythm backing for Ramsey Lewis in his first trio – but broke out on their own as a solo act, with a real focus on rhythmic piano grooves! Working here with pianist Hysear Don Walker, the pair attempt to recreate a bit of the rolling soul jazz groove they hit with Ramsey – but they also take a hipper approach, by moving the drums and bass forward in the mix, especially Young's bass, which was capable of amazing funky riffs and elegant whimsical lines. The title cut, "Wack Wack", is one of those 60s instrumental hits we'd put on a par with "Bang Bang" or "Soul Finger" – and the album also includes wonderful versions of jazz and pop hits like "Monday, Monday", "Song for My Father", "Sunny", and "Girl Talk", all of which are completely transformed by the group!

Beautiful beautiful work from The Chi-Lites – and a record that we might even say tops the best of their late Brunswick book! Despite the move from that label to Mercury, the group have a sound here that's still wonderfully fragile and harmony-focused – especially on the mellower cuts, which crackle with a sense of humanity that so many other harmony groups were losing at the time. But even the more upbeat tunes are great too – rolling along on some spacious arrangements by Tom Tom Washington, and showing that Chicago could come up with grooves to rival the sound of Philly!

Davis is really able to blend both deep soul roots and more sophisticated phrasing – at a level that helped transform the sound of southern soul in the 70s! Even though Tyrone himself hailed from Chicago, he has a vibe here that clearly informs new modes from singers like George McCrae, Johnny Taylor, and many others who'd move in the same direction that Davis had been handling this well for years. Arrangement and production are by the cream of the Brunswick stable – talents that include Carl Davis, Willie Henderson, Monk Higgins, and Otis Leavill – and titles include the great cut "Homewreckers", written by Sam Dees and Tyrone – plus "Was I Just A Fool", "How Could I Forget You", "It Aint' Me No More", "This Time", and "After All This Time".

The album's got these warm modern soul arrangements that still hold onto a bit of the blues from Tyrone's past – but often glide forward in this stepping sort of style that's offset nicely by that raspy, honest vocal approach that makes Davis such a unique singer.

BRC/Demon (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
The one and only album by Exit 9 – an obscure funk combo who recorded this rare set for Brunswick in 1975! The group is extremely tight instrumentally – working at a very fast funky clip that's kind of similar to work by Bohannon or Sound Experience – both of whom shared Exit 9's pre-disco approach to dancefloor grooves – more fast-funk than the tighter club sound of later years, and proof that a funky combo could hit the dancefloor if it had the right groove! Most numbers have vocals, and instrumentation includes lots of nice guitar work that keeps a rawer edge on the tracks – choppy and gritty in a really great way. Tracks include "MFB", "Miss Funky Fox", "Fly", "Julie I Love You", "Jive Man", and "Rhapsody in Funk". LP, Vinyl record album

ImpressionsFinally Got Myself Together/I'll Always Be Here ... 7-inch
Curtom, 1973. Very Good ... $6.99
Two great tracks from the album Finally Got Myself Together – a great later Impressions album that has a classic Curtom sound! The cut "Finally" has a sound that's a lot like the work that Curtis did with the Staples on "Let's Do It Again" – and "I'll Always Be Here" is a wonderful upbeat number, with that high-stepping Brunswick-styled Chicago groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has a touch of pen.)

Odyssey 5First Time Around ... LP
Brunswick/Demon (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... About August 28, 2020
A lost set of female soul tracks – recorded in the waning years of the Brunswick label, when they were really experimenting with some great obscure groups, most of whom got lost in the tax shuffles of the label's demise! Odyssey 5 hail from North Carolina, and they've got an ensemble female vocal style that's a bit like Voices Of East Harlem, but with rootsier southern soul touches – and a righteous quality that we totally love!. Alonzo Tucker produced the album with a real full-on sound – and although some cuts have a standout female lead, most tunes feature the group trading vocals pretty strongly together – in a really great way that makes the best cuts super-catchy. Titles include "Peace Of Mind", "Got To Be An Answer", "What's It Gonna Be", "Master Plan", "Golden Dreams", "My Best Friend", "More Ways Than One", and "Happiness Is Being With You".

Sidney Joe QuallsI Enjoy Loving You (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Dakar/Demon (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Classic work from this massively overlooked 70s soul singer! The set's one of a rare few albums cut by Sidney Joe Qualls – a fantastic talent who's probably better known for his work behind the scenes, and as a songwriter, than he is as a voice on his own. The session is produced with a style that kind of mixes Brunswick Chicago soul with rootsier southern elements – stepping proud in the 70s territory of Johnnie Taylor or Tyrone Davis, but sounding way way better here, and with a much more independent vibe. Plus, the album boasts some incredible material – original tunes written by the likes of Sam Dees, Clifford Davis, George Davis, and others. Titles include "Shut Your Mouth", "Run To Me", "I Enjoy Loving You", "Please Help Me", "Can't Get Enough of Your Love", and "The Next Time I Fall in Love". LP, Vinyl record album

StaplesFamily Tree (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, 1977. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
The Staple Singers pick up a great Chicago soul groove – with production by Eugene Record and arrangements by Tom Tom Washington – all in a sound that's almost as if they'd left Stax Records and started to record for Brunswick! The groove's every bit as soaring and joyous as Record and Washington crafted a few years before in the Chicago indie scene – with perhaps just a few more late 70s elements to round things out, including some tightly funky guitar bits and a few quick-stepping rhythms that nicely push the Staples towards the dancefloor! Titles include "Family Tree", "What You Doing Tonight", "I Honestly Love You", "See A Little Further", "Color Me Higher", "Let's Go To The Disco", and "Boogie For The Blues". CD features bonus single edits of "Let's Go To The Disco" and "I Honestly Love You". CD

✨✧ Young/HoltFeature Spot ... LP
Cadet, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Great early work from the Young/Holt combo – a debut outing under their own name, done before their music on Brunswick Records! Before they went off to record on their own – or maybe as a prediction that they would – Eldee Young and Red Holt cut this album of jazz tracks during the time that they were working with Ramsey Lewis! Since the album's a piano trio record, with Lewis on piano, it's sort of the same thing as the records they cut with him, but since they're on the marquee over his name, there's a little bit more focus on Young's bass and Holt's drumming. Tracks include "Dee's New Blues", "Travel On", "It Ain't Necessarily So", "Swamp Girl", and "Peace & Tranquility", and the album grooves with a good Chicago soul jazz sound. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousEccentric Soul – The Way Out Label ... CD
Numero, 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $12.99 29.98
Great work from a label that was way out in the Cleveland scene of the 60s – but which bristles with some of the best energy of Detroit and Chicago at the time! The tiny imprint never cracked the big time, but not for lack of quality – as the cuts here have a sharp blend of deep soul vocals and tight arrangements – of the sort that we've always loved in the best smaller Chicago indies of the late 60s – particularly the kind of labels that were operating in the shadows of Chess and Brunswick. A core group of artists recorded most of this music – and make for a very unified feel throughout – especially given that even some of the numbers with solo singers still really maintain a group soul sort of vibe. And the overall quality of the package takes us back to the earliest days of projects like this from the Numero Group – right down to the very detailed story of the label's unique place in 60s soul music. Titles include "There's No You" by The Occasions, "Demanding Man" and "Two Can Make It" by The Sensations, "She Didn't Know" by Sammy Jones, "Ain't That A Heartache" and "Baby Don't Go" by Norman Scott, "You're Not Loving A Beginner" by Jesse Fisher, "How long Will It Last" by The Soul Notes, "Why" by The Springers, and "Party At Lester's" by Lou Ragland & His Bandmasters. 2CD set – with 40 tracks and a great booklet!

The latest volume in one of our favorite series of soul jazz tracks! This one opens the scope way past previous volumes, and features a rollicking party of tasty little groovers – most of them with a raw, uptempo, funky 45 jukebox kind of feel! Tracks are from the Chess, Fantasy, Jewel, and Brunswick catalogs – with many rare numbers like "Fever" by Sharon Cash, "Get Ready" by Ella Fitzgerald, "Ain't There Something That Money Can't Buy" by Young Holt Unlimited, "Light My Fire" by Erma Franklin, "Hush" by Woody Herman, "Another Plan For School Mix Up" by The Cals, "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" by Karen Hernandez, "Caesar's Pad" by Googie Rene, "The Point" by Aaron (Chico) Bailey & The Family Affair Band, "I Got To See My Baby" by Lee Jones & The Unforgotten Two, and "Ain't It A Groove" by Dave Hamilton. 23 cuts in all – and very very groovy!

Rojac/Traffic, 1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Big Maybelle's got a new bag – and we like it! This tasty set was cut for the tiny Rojac label in between Maybelle's earlier years at Savoy and later albums on Brunswick – and it's got a swinging, 60s mod sort of style that's pretty darn groovy, baby! The arrangements are by Bob Gallo, and most of the tracks are 60s pop and soul standards – but Maybelle sings them with a gusty, sincere style – and brings a really great approach to the album – almost giving it the feel of some of the best Tangerine label albums from the decade. Titles include "Eggplant That Ate Chicago", "I Can't Control Myself", "Coming On Strong", "Mellow Yellow", "96 Tears", "Eleanor Rigby", and "Black Is Black". Kind of nutty, but it kind of works! CD

✨✧ Candace LoveNever In A Million Years – Rare Soul Recordings ... CD
Aquarius/Essential, Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare female soul from Candace Love – a singer who only recorded a handful of singles in her career, which are all collected here to make the first-ever full album of her work! Candace sung on the Chicago scene of the late 60s – and these tunes definitely have all the best elements the Windy City sound had to offer at the time – particularly that nicely-stepping midtempo groove you'd know from labels like Brunswick or Okeh, given a slight indie spin, as these tracks were all done for the smaller Aquarius label. Production and songwriting is by Fred Bridges, Ric Williams, and Bobby Eaton – and titles include "Peace Lovin Man", "Something's Gonna Happen", "Love Transplant", "Wonderful Night", "Uh Uh Boy That's A No No", "That's How It Is", "Never In A Million Years", and "Heaven & Hell" – plus a few takes on "I Want To Get Back".

✨✧ Billy Lee RileyBilly Lee Riley Rocks ... CD
Sun/Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Maybe one of the most hard-hitting in this great "rocks" series from Bear Family Records – and maybe one that features one of the artists most deserving the title, too – as the legendary Billy Lee Riley steps out here on a host of classic singles for Sun Records, unissued material, and other gems recorded for Brunswick, Philips, Rita, Jaro, and Home Of The Blues! Riley had a short but great career on the Memphis scene – where he was one of the rawest, most hard-ripping talents to cut up the underground in the days of the bigger early rock giants – a hell of a singer with a very raw sound, and a guitar player too – although these tracks also feature great work from Sonny Burgess and Roland Janes as well. CD features 35 tracks in all – including "Barefootin (alt)", "Red Hot", "Rock With Me Baby", "Is That All To The Ball", "Your Cash Ain't Nothin But Trash", "Thunderbird", "Arkansas Traveler", "Pearly Lee", "College Man", "Open The Door Richard", "Got The Water Boiling", "Nightmare Mash", "Searchin", "Speed Lovers", "The Little Green Men", and "Catfish".

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ Brenda LeeQueen Of Rock N Roll ... CD
Decca/Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rocking early work from Brenda Lee – a set that's filled with groovers all the way through, making for a nice change from some of the mellower sounds of her bigger hits! The package does a great job of sifting through early Lee 45s recorded for Decca and Brunswick – material that certainly has a strong country component, but which also features plenty of rocking guitars and basslines too – really bouncing things along nicely, and helping Brenda stay away from the bluer side of the spectrum. Her vocals are really great on some of the best numbers here – with a bite that really surprised us, as we often think of her mostly singing in a tear-stained mode. A great collection from Ace, supported with wonderful notes – and featuring 28 tracks that include "One Step At A Time", "Is It True", "What'd I Say", "Anybody But Me", "Rock The Bop", "Here Comes That Feelin", "That's All You Gotta Do", "Dynamite", "Let The Four Winds Blow", "Bigelow 6 200", "Crazy Talk", and "Dum Dum".

✨✧ Carol WilliamsReflections Of Carol Williams ... CD
Quality/BBE (UK), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest moments ever for legendary club soul singer Carol Williams – even though the album was originally released only in Canada, and lost to most folks at the time! Williams works here in a wonderful setting – with help from disco maestro Tony Valor, who always has this wonderful way of keeping things funky when still using fuller charts – maybe an evolution of the Barry White approach of the early 70s, as served up on some of Valor's own classics for Brunswick Records! Tony's work here easily matches, if not tops those sets – and there's maybe an even more cohesive vibe overall, thanks to a host of original tunes written by Carol herself – which really gives the record a great sense of energy. Titles include "Tell The World About Our Love", "Love Constitution", "He's My Man", "Take Your Time", "Dance The Night Away", and "I Get It". CD
