Stevie WonderIn Square Circle ... CD
Tamla, 1985. Used ... $4.99
Mid 80s, and while never that bad (nothing Stevie does is ever terrible – well, except for "Don't Drive Drunk"!), the record lacks that certain greatness that you'll find on even the lesser Stevie Wonder albums. Still, there's some decent enough numbers that keep the album fresh – and even at this point, Stevie's vocals are still sublime! Titles include "Stranger On The Shore Of Love", "Spiritual Walkers", "Land Of La La", "Overjoyed", and "Part-Time Lover". CD
(Out of print, tray card has a crease and a small cutout hole.)

✨✧ John ValentiAnything You Want/Why Don't We Fall ... 7-inch
Ariola/P-Vine (Japan), 1976. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
A blue-eyed soul classic from John Valenti – despite the black and white eye image on the cover! "Anything You Want" has a warm jazzy groove, great keyboards, and the kind of cresting vocals you'd expect to hear on one of Stevie Wonder's best cuts from the 70s! "Why Don't We Fall In Love" is nice too – romping, with a nice jazzy current underneath – almost with a Fantasy Records 70s sort of vibe! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Part of the excellent Groove Diggers series!)

Joe FarrellPenny Arcade/Upon This Rock/Canned Funk ... CD
BGO (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
3 killer CTI classics from Joe Farrell in a 2CD set! Penny Arcade has grooves so sharp you could cut your trousers on them! Farrell's angular reed style is in perfect form here – grooving with a small group that includes Herbie Hancock on piano, Joe Beck on guitar, Steve Gadd on drums, and Don Alias on percussion – a combo that's got a harder, tighter feel than most CTI groups – a key reason why Joe's records of this time are so legendary! Includes a version of Stevie Wonder's "Too High" – one that breaks all over the beginning with these riffs by Farrell, then grooves into a CTI electric funk mode for about 13 minutes. All tracks are long – and other tracks include "Hurricane Jane", "Geo Blue", "Penny Arcade", and "Cloud Cream". Upon This Rock is another massive set from the funky reedman – with a lean, edgy groove to the set that's totally great. One cut features a guest group – with Herbie Hancock on piano, Steve Gadd on drums, and Don Alias on percussion – and the album includes the massively break-heavy title cut "Upon This Rock", plus "Seven Seas", "I Won't Be Back", and "Weathervane". There's nothing canned on Canned Funk – as the sound, style, and groove of the record is as fresh and freaky as the classic image on the cover! The sax lines are as angular as the rhythms – tight, choppy, and completely funky – no wonder the record's a CTI classic that folks have dug for years! Tracks are all nice and long – and titles include "Canned Funk", "Animal", and "Spoken Silence". CD

Main IngredientSuper Hits ... LP
RCA, 1976. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A tasty collection of work from the second era of the Main Ingredient – after the death of original member Donald McPherson, and during the time when Tony Silvester was leaving the group to work on his ill-planned solo career. Cuba Gooding Sr is lead vocalist on all tracks – and the record features 2 great Leon Ware tunes – "Instant Love" and "Rolling Down A Mountainside" – plus "Just Don't Want To Be Lonely, "Shame On The World", and Stevie Wonder's "Girl Blue". Lots of nice uptown arrangements by Bert DeCoteaux and Rene Hall, in that "transition from the 60s" style that was the group's real strength. LP, Vinyl record album

Janelle MonaeDirty Computer ... CD
Bad Boy, 2018. New Copy ... $9.99 18.98
Janelle Monae knocks it out of the park here – sounding every bit as great as before, but also hitting this righteous mode that really takes the singer to incredible new territory! If you loved Janelle's previous records, don't worry – she's still as catchy and playful as ever – but there's also a depth and darkness that's inspired by recent political turns in America – which Monae also uses to address issues that go back much farther in her experience, woven together in songs that are maybe even more politically powerful because of the way that they'll also win over the mainstream! Stevie Wonder gets the very first thanks in the long notes at the end of the book – and the mix of soul and message here definitely hearkens back to Stevie in the 70s – is all Janelle's own. Heck, even guests like Zoe Kravitz, Brian Wilson, and Pharrell Williams can't get in the way – on titles that include "Screwed", "Django Jane", "I Got The Juice", "Stevie's Dream", "Don't Judge Me", "Crazy Classic Life", "Take A Byte", "Do Afraid", "Americans", "I Like That ", "Pynk", "Jane's Dream", and "Make Me Feel". And hey, you've gotta love a record that's inspired both by Vibranium and Stevie Wonder! CD

OmarOmar – The Anthology ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 1990s/2000s/2010s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A huge career overview of the music of Omar Lyefook – one of our favorite soul singers of the past few decades – right from the moment he first wowed the world with a bedroom-produced album that rivaled the greatness of Stevie Wonder! Omar's placement on the UK scene has maybe got him less attention than he's deserved on our shores – but don't let that stop you from diving in and really digging the sublime array of sounds on the set – music that was some of the freshest, most original soul of the 90s – and which continued to move at a very high level as Omar kept creating over the decades. The 2CD package includes out of print gems from his early records, and other bits from more recent years – and a fair bit of collaborations with artists who include Carleen Anderson, Terri Walker, Stevie Wonder, Caron Wheeler, Erykah Badu, Leon Ware, and Robert Glasper. 33 tracks in all – including "Music", "Last Request", "There's Nothing Like This", "Pass It On", "Feeling You", "Kiss It Right", "The Man", "Treat You", "F*ck War Make Love", "De Ja Vu", "Insatiable", "Doobie Doobie Doo", "Gave My Heart", "Be Thankful", "This Is Not A Love Song", "Little Boy", "Tell Me", "Vicky's Tune", "Bully", "Who Chooses The Seasons", and "Last Request".

Stone AllianceLive In Bremen ... CD
PM/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99
A rare European performance from the Stone Alliance trio – one that was recorded at the same time as their legendary run of albums for the PM label, but never issued at the time! The tracks are nice and long here, and the group really break out – still every bit as tight as on their well-remembered albums of hard funk and heavy jazz, but with some freer elements at times – especially from Steve Grossman's tenor on his long solos, and also from percussionist Don Alias on one long track that's just a 9 minute solo on congas! Other titles include a nice reading of Stevie Wonder's "Creepin", plus "Samba De Negro", "Sweetie Pie", "King Tut", and "Taurus People". CD

VariousShel's Girls – From The Planet Records Vaults ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
Producer Shel Talmy is maybe best known for his work behind some of the bigger rock artists on the UK scene of the 60s – but he also really had a great way with a gal singer too – as you'll hear in this killer collection of female pop singles from the time! The tunes here groove like the best from big names like Sandie Shaw, Dusty Springfield, or Cilla Black – with a similar focus of strong lead singer amidst some very groovy arrangements – but the songs are much more obscure overall, and stand strongly as a rich dip into the world of female British pop of the 60s, even if you don't care at all about Shel's legacy! Fortunately, we're huge fans of both – and completely adore this well-done collection – which has two dozen tracks we never would have heard otherwise, along with very detailed notes and plenty of images of the ladies within. Titles include a great version of the Brian Wilson tune "Guess I'm Dumb" by Dani Sheridan – plus "No More Love" by Liz Shelly, "Gotta Get Away" by Van Lenton, "Cruel Way To Be" by Debbie Sharron, "Surrender" by Perpetual Langley, "A Strange World" by Stevie Holly, "Stay At Home" by The Orchids, "This Heart Is Not For Sale" by Margo & The Marvettes, "Tar & Cement" by Liz Shelly, A Shoulder To Cry On" by Christine Holmes, and "A Ladies Man (alt version)" by Colette & The Bandits.

✨✧ Stone AllianceStone Alliance ... CD
PM/Solid (Japan), 1975/1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing little group – and one of the real standouts in indie jazz during the 70s! Stone Alliance are a killer power trio made up of players who'd previously worked for Elvin Jones – and all three of them have inherited a frenzied sense of rhythm from Jones – and that great sharp edge he brought to his initial early recordings in the post-Coltrane years! But there's also a deeper sound going on here, too – a bit of funk, and definitely a bit of Latin in the percussion and basslines – which makes for these grooves that are as complicated as they are infectious – often given some sweet spiritual tones from the reeds on top! The lineup features Steve Grossman on tenor and soprano sax, Gene Perla on bass, and Don Alias on drums and percussion – all working together with tremendous energy, but a great focus too – always soulful, and never too jamming at all. Titles include the insane break track "Sweetie Pie", plus Stevie Wonder's "Creepin", "Duet", "King Tut", "Samba De Negro" and "Vaya Mulatto". CD

✨✧ Stevie WonderInnervisions ... LP
Tamla, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best Stevie Wonder albums ever! Stevie's moving into god-like territory here – handling a multitude of styles, all well, and crafting some of the most sophisticated soul of his generation. The album's got the same jazzy references you'll find on the best work by Donny Hathaway – best heard on the sublime track "Golden Lady", which gets our clear vote for one of the best songs ever! Just about every track is great, though – and the album features the big hits "Living For The City", "All In Love Is Fair", "Higher Ground", and "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing" – plus "He's Misstra Know It All", "Jesus Children Of America", and "Too High". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ DJ RogersDJ Rogers ... LP
Shelter, 1973. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Mindblowing music from the great DJ Rogers – his first record, and a rootsy album of spiritual soul, right up there with the best 70s work by artists like Donny Hathaway, Rance Allen, or Stevie Wonder! Like all of those giants, DJ's got a deeply soulful vocal style that's more than influenced by a history in the church – and also like all of them, DJ takes that sound past any gospel cliches, and reworks it into a sophisticated new groove, perfect for the growth in the 70s soul market at the time, and touched with just the right bit of smooth modern production. DJ produced, wrote, and sung on all the album – and also handled a fair bit of the keyboard work as well. Titles include "Listen To The Message", "Where There's A Will", "Take Time", "March On", "Don't You Want To Ride", "Bail Out", and "Celebration". LP, Vinyl record album

SyreetaSyreeta ... LP
MoWest, 1972. Very Good+ ... $38.99
One of our favorite soul records of the 70s – and one of the most unique albums ever cut by Motown, too! The lovely Syreeta steps out here with key studio help from then-partner Stevie Wonder – who makes things even more righteous and more cosmic than on any of his own 70s material – almost as if working with Syreeta really cut Stevie loose to explore territory he'd never have handled on his own! Yet the real charm here is Syreeta, too – amazing vocals that are on a par with Minnie Riperton at her righteous best – set to very unique backings that are very heavy on keyboards and electronics – almost a deeper, hipper take on the early territory of Timmy Thomas – given a very spiritual spin by Syreeta and Stevie! The pair wrote lots of material for the album – including the amazing tracks "I Love Every Little Thing About You", "Black Maybe", and "Keep Him Like He Is". The album also includes an incredible version of "She's Leaving Home" – plus the tracks "Baby Don't You Let Me Lose This", "To Know You Is To Love You", and "Happiness". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sharon Jones & The Dap KingsHoliday Soul Party ... CD
Daptone, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful Holiday set from Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings – easily one of the coolest albums you'll ever hope to spin in December! The group really recreate the vibe of a classic Christmas soul album – like records from James Brown or Stevie Wonder – and do an excellent job of moving between funky numbers, deeper soul, and some righteous message cuts that remind us that the Holidays aren't always happy for everyone on the planet. And these guys also don't just hang out at Christmas – and instead touch on other December holidays too – in a sweet mix of cuts that features Sharon in the lead on many numbers, plus some great instrumentals from the Dap-Kings too. Titles include "8 Days", "Ain't No Christmas In The Projects", "Big Bulbs", "Funky Little Drummer Boy", "World Of Love", "Got Rest Ye Merry Gents", "Silent Night", "Just Another Christmas Song", and "Please Come Home For Christmas".

Paul HornVisions ... LP
Epic, 1974. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Nice fusiony jazz done with soul and airy atmophere by Paul Horn – including some choice covers, and sounds that range from fusiony jazz with a little bit of funk and more lilting numbers lifted by flute and wordless vocals! Horn has a tendency to go head first into a more new agey vibe, but here we get a more grounded approach with more soul and bits of funk in the bass, keys & percussion. The players include Larry Carlton, Joe Sample and Tom Scott. Includes a nice takes on a trio of Stevie Wonder numbers: "Too High", "Visions" and "Living For The City", Joni Mitchell's "Blue" and "Chelsea Morning" (the former featuring some vocals and keyboards by Joni), plus "High Tide"., "Long Time Gone", "Song With No Words" and "Dida".

Idle HandsSolid Moments ... CD
Posi tone, 2020. New Copy ... $11.99 17.98
There's nothing idle about these hands – as the group have a tightness that makes you think they've been together for years – which is maybe partly the case, as many of the artists are part of the great and ever-growing legacy of the Posi-Tone label! And while the company has given us great albums with single artists in the lead over the years, they've maybe been hitting even more strongly of late with groups of this nature – almost an all-leader effort, but in which all players come together with great sympathy for each other – in a lineup that features Will Bernard on guitar, Behn Gillece on vibes, Sam Dillon on tenor sax, Art Hirahara on piano, Boris Kozlov on bass, and Donald Edwards drums. The album's overflowing with fresh, original material – and titles include "Barreling Through", "Silver Bullet", "Maxwell Street", "Ashes", "Sock's House", "Motion", and "Event Horizon " – plus nice takes of Stevie Wonder's "You And I" and Freddie Hubbard's "Theme For Kareem".

SolUpfront – An EC3 Vibe ... CD
Pacific Coast Jazz, 2017. New Copy ... $6.99 10.99
Great sounds from Sol – an artist with a warm glow right from the start, but also a nice sense of crispness that really personalizes his lyrics! Sol's got an approach here that almost feels like gospel – especially given his vocal range, and his positive energy – but the music is definitely secular overall, and features some well-done covers of work by Bill Withers and Stevie Wonder! There's a killer take on "Lovely Day", with almost a Latin jazz sort of vibe – and Stevie's great "Golden Lady", one of our favorite tunes ever, is taken at a slightly quicker clip, with an nice sax bit too. Yet the original tunes are almost even better – and include "That's The Way I Feel You", "Always", "Invisible", and "After The Sunrise". CD

Warner, 1977. Very Good+ ... $6.99
The second album by this band of very successful studio players – and quite a big hit for the group! Players include Richard Tee, Cornell Dupree, Steve Gadd, and Eric Gale – and the record is a culmination of the players' long history of soul work during the 70s, particularly that which was done on LA sessions that were trying for a rootsy "authentic" feel. The group's at their best when they open up into a sweet CTI-type slick funk mode, grooving instrumentally with a nice warm electric finish. The best tracks have a great smooth jazz finish – like "Sometimes Bubba Gets Down", "And Here You Are", "Honey Coral Rock", and their cover of Stevie Wonder's "As". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Morgana KingNew Beginnings ... LP
Paramount, 1973. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A completely hip little record from Morgana King – one that takes her amazing voice, and sets it amidst some expansive arrangements that push past jazz to include some trippier 70s styles! The whole session's got a nice mix of the mellow and baroque – with a subtle funky undercurrent at points, and definitely a fair bit more soul than we're used to hearing from Morgana! Arrangements are by Torrie Zito and Bob James – and the production often compresses the vocals in a really cool way – sliding them amidst the instrumentation with a haunting quality that's hard to describe in words, but which makes the album one of King's most breathtaking ever! The back cover has Morgana getting props from Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Paul Williams, and Kenny Rankin – all names we can certainly trust – and titles include a great version of "We Could Be Flying", "All In All", "A Song For You", "Like A Seed", and "The Sands Of Time & Changes".

We Want Sounds (UK), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A lovely little record from singer Jaye P Morgan – a talent that most folks know from her 70s appearances on the Gong Show, but who was also a pretty nice vocalist on her own! The set here showcases a much more soulful side of Jaye's style than her earlier albums – a smoothly jazzy approach that's almost modern soul at times, and which is done with some great backings on keyboards and electric guitar – all sweetly compressed into a warm 70s mode that's mighty nice. Part of the strength of the set is from the artists working with Jaye on the album – including David Foster, who arranged and produced – plus studio jazzers that include Harvey Mason, Greg Adams, Lee Ritenour, George Bohannon, and even the Tower Of Power horn section! The album's got a great smooth stepper called "Here Is Where Your Love Belongs", a nice cover of Stevie Wonder's "It's Been So Long", the soulful funky tune "Let's Get Together", and wonderfully gliding take on "Can't Hide Love". Other tracks include "I Fall In Love Everyday", "Keepin It To Myself", "Closet Man", and "It All Goes Round". LP, Vinyl record album

Side A's a perennial favorite here in Chicago – "The Real Thing" is a funky cover of the Stevie Wonder tune by the same name, done in a tight smooth 70s jazz funk mode, a style that's keep the song fresh for many years to come! "Mozambique" pops along in a similarly slick late 70s funk crossover mode, too! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Arrangements are bigger than ever before – with large backings arranged by Lonnie, and some vocals that have a really wonderful, warm, Stevie Wonder-esque quality to them. The best tracks groove along at a nice midtempo pace, with strong work on keyboards by Lonnie, and a warm, dreamy, soulful quality that's quite different from his Blue Note work, but equally pleasing in another sort of way. Titles include "What's Done Is Done", "I Need Your Love", "Sweet Honey Wine", "My Latin Sky", and "Journey To Within". LP, Vinyl record album

A killer of an album from Jamiroquai – the first time we really sat up and took notice, and said "hey, these guys are onto something good!" The record's pretty darn great all the way through – a warm batch of tunes that starts with a classic 70s mode that's part Stevie Wonder, part Steely Dan – and which runs through some of the more modern London percussion/production techniques to freshen things up! Titles include "Mr Moon", "Kids", "Manifest Destiny", "Light Years", "Stillness In Time", "Morning Glory", and "Space Cowboy". LP, Vinyl record album
