✨✧ Chi-Lites(For God's Sake) Give More Power To The People ... LP
Brunswick, 1970. Very Good+ ... $9.99
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
(Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Chi-LitesLove Your Way Through ... LP
Excello, 1981. Very Good+ ... $19.99
An obscure later album by The Chi-Lites – a mix of smooth modern soul styles, very different than the usual southern soul grooves you'd expect from the Excello label. The group's in fine form harmony-wise, and the best cuts feature some mellow stripped-down production that's sort of an update of the hits of earlier years. Titles include "The Only One for Me", "We're Right For Each Other", "Love Your Way Through", "You Won't Be Lonely For Long", "Stay A Little Longer", "All My Life", and "Getting Back At You". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has a cut corner and light wear.)

✨✧ Chi-LitesHalf A Love ... LP
Brunswick, 1975. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Nothing half about The Chi-Lites at all – as the group were always tremendous during their famous run at Brunswick Records – able to come across perfectly on mellow ballads and more upbeat numbers! This set is a wonderful illustration of the really unique Chicago-based approach that the group and the label brought forth at the time – a complexity without showing off too much, a sense of humanity without too much weakness, and a way of sending home lyrics in group form that have a sense of individuality that's often greater than any single singer! Arrangements are wonderful – often headed by group member Eugene Record – and the set's full of classic cuts that include "Half A Love", "Here I Am", "Living In The Foosteps Of Another Man", "When Temptation Comes", "Go Away Dream", and "Ain't Too Much Of Nothin".

VariousT Groove Presents TK Super Disco Classics 1977 to 1979 ... CD
TK/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 70s. New Copy ... $28.99
Classic cuts from the TK Records stable of Miami disco from the 70s – all of which are served up here on 7" single mixes, a fair bit of which appear here on CD for the first time ever! TK is maybe best known for it's long-spun club cuts that were a perfect fit for the budding 12" format in the mid 70s – but the label also turned out plenty of cuts with a tight, catchy groove that was perfect for a funky 45 – which might have been why TK was one of the few labels to rule both on the radio and on the dancefloors back in the day! Japanese DJ T Groove takes us through 20 TK singles here – with tracks that include "Return Of Vader" by AD, "Macho" by Celi Bee & The Buzzy Bunch, "Higher" by Chi-Lites, "Star Cruiser" by Gregg Diamond, "Moon Ride" by Universal Love, "Let's Dance" by Wild Honey, "Have A Good Day (part 1)" by Gail Eason, "Music (voc)" by Montreal Sound, "I'm Gonna Dance" by Asha Puthli, "Dancin In My Feet" by Laura Taylor, "Holding Back" by Gregg Diamond, "At Midnight" by T Connection, "If There's Love" by Amant, "Spank" by Jimmy Bo Horne, and "The Break (short)" by Kat Mandu.

✨✧ Delroy WilsonGo Away Dream ... LP
Pressure Sounds, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A fantastic record from the great Delroy Wilson – a set that's dubby at the core, but also has a righteous sense of soul too – almost a Jamaican extension of the hippest styles of early 70s American soul! Delroy's vocals are wonderful – very powerful, even without trying too much – and set up amidst some great production from Bunny Lee that really makes the whole thing shine like a slow-burning dark star – a perfect vibe that's laidback, but never lazy – and a great change from some of the more polished early 80s Jamaican soul. Titles include a great remake of the Chi-Lites "Go Away Dream" – plus "No More Heartaches", "Spit In The Sky", "When She Was My Girl", "I Can't Take You Back", "I Can't Fight It Anymore", "Won't You Come Home", and "Silhouette Silhouette".

Famous break tracks abound – in this all-star batch of tracks that includes some of the better known samples from classic years! The tracks here go beyond the ordinary hip hop breaks, and include a number that have been used in more mainstream dance tracks as well – but that doesn't stop them from being great funk tracks on their own, making the set a delight no matter how you recognize the tunes! Titles include "Candy" by Cameo, "Super Freak" by Rick James, "Knee Deep" by Funkadelic, "You Can't Turn Me Away" by Sylvia Striplin, "Hercules" by Aaron Neville, "Wicky Wacky" by Fatback Band, "Funky Worm" by Ohio Players, "We Are Neighbors" by Chi Lites, "Are You Being Real" by Bar-Kays, "Funky Drummer" by James Brown, "Free At Last" by Al Green, and "I'm A Good Woman" by Barbara Lynn.

Pat & PamHey Love/My Baby & I ... 7-inch
Day Dreaming, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A great female harmony duo from Chicago! "Hey Love" is a sweet swinger with a nice little bounce – arrangements by Tom Tom, and nicely cracking vocals by the girls, singing in a style that's almost like The Lovelites! "My Baby" is mellower, but still has a good groove at the bottom – some nice rhythms that chug along with a good stepping feel, and vocals that really have an honest soulful approach! 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousSka After Ska After Ska ... CD
Treasure Isle/Heartbeat, 1960s. Used ... $6.99
Mad ska from the King of Soul & Blues, proprietor of the heavy, heavy Trojan Sound System – after which the famous UK label would name themselves – Duke Reid! While Coxsone Dodd's Studio One has dominated the reissue scene for decades, back in the day he was the underdog compared to Duke Reid's Treasure Isle, home to some of the biggest ska and rocksteady numbers ever to rock Kingston! Heartbeat collects 21 scorching Treasure Isle ska jams on this outstanding set, for a non stop set of full blast gems, including "Thoroughfare" and "Street Corner" by Don Drummond & The Skatalites, "Magnificent Ska" by Lynn Taitt & The Baba Brooks Band, "It's Real" and "True Confession" by the Silvertones, 'When You Are Wrong" by the Techniques, "Rough & Tough" by Stranger Cole, "Only Suffering" by Funny Man & The Boys, "Get Your Feet Moving" by Eric Monty Morris, "Burial" by Duke Reid & His Group, "Storm Warning" by Lynn Taitt & His Comets, "Nuclear Weapon" by the Baba Brooks Band, "Carry go, Bring Home" by Justin Hinds & The Dominoes and "Alley Cat Ska" by the Treasure Isle All Stars.

✨✧ EmotionsHeart Association/Touch Of Your Lips ... 7-inch
Volt, 1970. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two great little ballad cuts from The Emotions – a beautiful blend of the sweeter harmonies they forged in Chicago, and some of the harder Memphis soul of the Volt label. "Touch Of Your Lips" is especially great, and it sounds like some lost little gem from The Lovelites! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ LovelitesMy Conscience/Man In My Life ... 7-inch
Lovelite, Early 60s. Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest tracks ever recorded by this hip Chicago girl group! "My Conscience" begins with a great stepping soul groove – really tight, and a perfect foil for the lyrics of the song, done up nicely by lead singer Patti Hamilton. "Man In My Life" is a bit mellower, but a great sweet number with a late night sound, and some dreamy lyrics about love and loyalty. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousStudio One Story (CD & DVD – NTSC version) ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used 2CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
To say this one's been a long time coming would be an understatement! This awesome set features a 4 hour (!) DVD, loaded with rare footage of the Skatalites, Jackie Mittoo and Ernest Ranglin, plus in-depth interviews with Dodd and a whole host of artists that had worked their way through the Studio One stable throughout the years. Then there's the 16 track CD – a fitting complement to the film and next worthy installment in the fine series of compilations of Studio One material that Soul Jazz has undertaken, this time spanning all the genres that Studio One would cover, including ska, rocksteady, roots and dancehall, including Theo Beckford "Easy Snapping", The Skatalites "Guns Of Navarone", Delroy Wilson "Dancing Mood", The Heptones "Baby", Alton Ellis "I'm Still In Love With You", Tommy McCook "Tunnel One", Sugar Minott "Jah Jah Children", The Dub Specialist "Banana Walk", Dennis Alcapone "Run Run", The Lone Ranger "Love Bump" and Jackie Mittoo "Freak Out".

✨✧ Derrick Harriott & OthersDerrick Harriott – Reggae, Funk, & Soul 1969 To 1975 ... LP
Dub Store (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The title certainly gets it right – as Derrick Harriott serves up a wonderful mix of sounds that owes plenty to American funk and soul of the early 70s – some cool Kingston covers of famous US tunes, and some other originals that are equally groovy overall! The set's one of the best that we've ever heard from the Dub Store label – and almost has a Soul Jazz level of track selection – really wonderful work that either features Derrick in the lead, or working with some hip contemporaries, in a groove that's totally great – neither straight reggae, but also quite far from more familiar funk and soul too. Titles include "Black Moses" by The Preacher, "Tougher Than Tough" by I Roy, "Brown Baby" by Derrick Harriott, "Hell Below" by Crystal Generation, "Going Back Home" by The Chosen Few, "Psychedelic Train" by Derrick Harriott, "Slippery" by Karl Bryan & The Crystalites, "Home Sweet Home" by Bongo Herman & Les, "Rescue The Children" by Junior Murvin, "Phoenix" by Noel Brown, "People Make The World Go Round" by The Chosen Few, and "Message From A Black Man" by Derrick Harriott. LP, Vinyl record album
