✨✧ Eli's Second ComingEli's Second Coming ... CD
Silver Blue/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $22.99
A great little set of 70s soul – and one of the more obscure groups to ever record for the TK Records family of labels! Not to be confused with the Laura Nyro hit "Eli's Coming", this group's one that's headed up by Philly Soul maestro Bobby Eli – composer of, producer for, and guitarist on countless 70s soul hits! The group's Bobby's own, and has a sound that's very much in keeping with the best Philly disco of the period – with likely suspect players that include Ron Kersey on keyboards, Vince Montana on vibes, and Larry Washington on congas. Most tunes feature a 3-woman vocal chorus singing the lyrics – very much in the classic Philly female disco group mode – and titles include "Heavenly", "Foxfire, "Lickety Split", "Love Chant", "Why Don'cha", "Hop Scotch", and oh, a version of "Eli's Coming"! CD
(Part of the Miami Sound – Original Soul/Funk/Disco Collection series!)

✨✧ VariousFunky Blues 1960s to 1970s – Modern/Kent Blues Treasures ... CD
Modern/Kent/P-Vine (Japan), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The title gets it right – and the grooves do too – nothing but funky blues from the 60s and 70s, the kind of gritty, hard-edged tunes that are way better than the sort of blues you might be used to hearing at frat boy bars! All of the work here was originally issued on west coast indie powerhouse Kent/Modern – and the package does a good job of pulling out some under-recognized gems from the funkier side of their output at the time – tracks that often have some very tight drums, rumbling basslines, and scratchy guitar alongside the more soul-oriented vocals. Titles include "Let Your Hair Down" and "You Make Me Cry" by Arthur K Adams; "Kidney Stew" and "Two Ton Mama" by Newman Family; "Funky Way" by Jimmy Bee; "Women's Liberation" by TV Mama Jean; "What You See Is What You're Gonna Get" by Brenda George; "The Turning Point" by Rudy Ray Moore; "Night Time" and "Go To Train" by Smokey Wilson; "Tramp" by Foxfire; and "Mellow Together", "Funky Broadway", "The Thing", and "Hobo Meeting" by Lowell Fulsom.

VariousMasterpieces Of Modern Soul Vol 5 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
Stunning soul from the deepest depths of the American underground – upbeat groovers that mix a clubby vibe with deeper vocals – but all without hitting a disco sound at all! Some of these numbers are from the years before Studio 54, but showcase a changing style of soul – more sophisticated, a bit more funk in the mix – and this fantastic blend of instrumentation, arrangements, and production – all of which give the songs a level of perfection that definitely deserves the "masterpiece" in the title! Most of these tracks are from rare singles, but a few haven't been issued before – and together, the cuts really show the ever-evolving understanding we have of classic soul – always shaped strongly by excellent collections like this. Titles include "LOVE" by Leon Thomas, "How Can I Go On Without You" by John Edwards, "Mr So & So's Daughter" by Loleatta Holloway, "Can We Talk It Over" by Eddie Floyd, "I Believe" by New Experience with Elayne Starr, "I Guess God Wants It This Way" by Freddie Scott, "We'll Go On" by Eon, "Ride The Disco Train" by The Moderations, "That's The Story Of My Life" by Major Lance, "Your Momma Had A Baby" by Street People, "I'll Continue To Love You" by Millie Jackson, "A Star In The Ghetto" by Foxfire with Johnny Adams, "Hello Stranger" by Reggie Milner, "Gotta Be Loved (part 2)" by Herman Davis, "I'll Life My Life Loving You" by The Headliners, and a great version of "Lucky Fellow" by The Independents – a song later made more famous by Leroy Hutson!

✨✧ VariousThis Is Real – Kent/Modern Deep Soul Treasures ... CD
Kent/Modern/P-Vine (Japan), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $32.99
A huge helping of deep soul tracks from the south – South California, that is – from the mighty Kent/Modern label, home to a huge amount of under-discovered music in the 60s! Modern first hit its stride recording R&B and blues in the postwar years – but during the 60s, the company continued as a strong indie, through its Kent label – with a real dedication to the sorts of sounds that were not getting as much exposure elsewhere! Kent recorded a fair bit of artists from points south and east – hitting the southern circuit to find talent as much as Atlantic Records – but they also allowed the artists to really do their own thing, and come up with standout styles that aren't nearly as hammered down into a single label signature approach. The result is a great blend of music, as you'll hear here on this 48 track set – overflowing with gems by Earl Wright, Ruth Davis, Robert Ramsey, Danny Monday, Jimmy Robins, Foxfire, Johnny Adams, Vernon Garrett, The Other Brothers, Bobby John, Billy Watkins, The Sims Twins, Willie Gauff & The Love Brothers, Freeman King, Jeanette Jones, and many more!
