Freda PayneBand Of Gold ... CD
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $13.99
A landmark album from Freda Payne! Freda had been knocking around a bit as a more jazz-oriented singer, and had cut one album for Impulse and one for MGM before this one – but when she hooked up with the hitmaking Holland-Dozier-Holland team for this record, her career really went over the top! The team take Payne's deep soulful voice away from the sophisticated pop of earlier years, and hook it up with a mix of fuzzy Detroit soul and sweeter southern styles. The album includes loads of great cuts – most notably the sublime crossover hit "Band of Gold", but also plenty of other lesser-known gems, like "The Easiest Way to Fall", "Unhooked Generation", "Deeper and Deeper", and "This Girl Is a Woman Now". Her best by far! CD
Also available Band Of Gold (180 gram pressing) ... LP 28.99

Freda PayneReaching Out (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Invictus/Demon (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
It's a few years after Freda's big hit "Band of Gold", and she's recording here in a very different mode! The record is produced by Holland-Dozier-Holland, with arrangements by a number of different talents, like McKinley Jackson, Tony Camillo, and Michael Smith – and the overall sound is much more sophisticated than on some of Freda's earlier work. The vocals are especially sharp – quite mature, and almost in a mode that points towards later work by singers like Jean Carn or Marlena Shaw during the late 70s. Includes the nice midtempo groover "We've Gotta Find A Way Back To Love", worth the price of the album alone – plus "Mood For Love", "Reaching Out", "Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right", "Mother Misery's Favorite Child", and "Right Back Where I Started From".

✨✧ Freda PayneOut Of Payne Comes Love ... LP
ABC, 1975. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly great little album from Freda Payne – recorded after her years with Holland Dozier Holland – but done with a sweet smooth style that's almost southern/modern – and which really works for her voice! The album's got a really unified feel – never too over the top, with some solid sophisticated soul songs that show Freda with a side that we wouldn't have expected. Titles include "Look What I Found", "You", "Keep It Coming", "Seems So Long", "You Brought The Woman Out Of Me", "Lost In Love", "Million Dollar Horse", and "See Me One Last Time".

✨✧ Freda PaynePayne & Pleasure ... CD
ABC/Reel Music, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Genius work from Freda Payne – a set recorded after her bigger fame years for Invictus/Hot Wax – but a record that's done with an even deeper feel overall! The album features some key contributions from Lamont Dozier – who wasn't credited on the original record, due to his continuing contract with HDH – and his bold, righteous approach in the studio is definitely felt here – as he gives Freda the same great groove he'd hit on his own ABC albums! As with those, McKinley Jackson handles the arrangements – which work perfectly with the punctuated groove of Dozier's production – and Payne really sparkles in the setting, stretching out with these magnificent vocals that go way beyond what you might expect. The tunes are impeccable – as well-written as those on other Dozier projects of the time – loads of original numbers that include "Didn't I Tell You", "It's Yours To Have", "I Get Carried Away", "Run For Your Life", "Shadows On The Wall", and "Don't Wanna Be Left Out" – plus versions of "A Song For You" and "I Won't Last A Day".

✨✧ Freda PayneStares & Whispers ... LP
Capitol, 1977. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet club grooving from the legendary Freda Payne – a very different album than her initial hits for Holland-Dozier-Holland, and a set that has a mature mix of disco and modern soul! Production is by Tony Camillo and Frank Wilson – and the tracks are long and nicely stretched out – getting Freda past the hooks and into territory that almost rivals the best on Philadelphia International at the time. The best cuts here are the ones that are slightly mellow, grooving in a midtempo mode – really letting Payne show off this new style to best effect. Titles include "Master Of Love", "Stares & Whispers", "Bring Back The Joy", and "I Get High On Your Memory". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Freda PayneContact (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A totally great album from Freda Payne – a set that moves strongly past her initial early hits for the Holland Dozier Holland team, into a realm that's even more sophisticated overall! There's a full approach here that's really wonderful – almost a higher-concept version of soul music, yet still with all the punch that Payne packed on her key singles from the first album! Strings and larger arrangements really round out the sound in a very unique way – but the whole thing's still plenty soulful all the way through, with a righteous undercurrent that definitely lives up to the HDH legacy – thanks to arrangements from McKinley Jackson and HB Barnum. Freda's vocals are wonderful – even more powerful than before – and titles include "I'm Not Getting Any Better", "The Road We Didn't Take", "Odds & Ends", "I Shall Not Be Moved", "Mama's Gone", "Suddenly It's Yesterday", "You Brought The Joy", and "You've Got To Love Somebody (Let It Be Me)". CD features lots of bonus tracks – including "He's In My Life", "You Brought The Joy (single version)", "Just A Woman", "Come Back", "Band Of Gold (alt)", "Deeper & Deeper (single version)", "You're The Only Bargain I've Got", and "How Can I Live Without My Life".

VariousDisco Soul Gold – The Nigel Lowis Mixes – 16 Modern Disco Soul Gems ... CD
Disco Soul Gold (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $16.99
The glory of disco is alive and well – thanks to a host of contemporary club talents who really help the music find a new groove in the 21st Century! The title and cover might make you expect a collection of tracks from years back – but the work here is all recent, and brings together soaring sounds from some killer singers who really bring a hell of a lot of spirit to the grooves! All tracks here are mixes handled by Nigel Lowis – which makes for a nicely unified vibe to the whole collection – as tunes bubble with a beautiful blend of upbeat rhythms and soaring strings. Titles include Lowis remakes of "Soul Town" by Ola Onabule, "State Of Mind" by Soul City People, "Can't Knock Me Down" by Chubby Tavares, "Bring It Home To Me" by Marc Staggers, "No Payne No Gain" by Clif & Freda Payne, "Sunny Day" by Hannah White, "Show Me" by McCrei, "Dance" by Gina Carey, "We Bring The Party" by The Dig Band with Dina Carroll, "What The Child Needs" by Terry Ronald, "Soul Night" by Mather & Kingdon, and "Make You Mine" by Samuel D Sanders.

✨✧ VariousSoul Music Lovers Only – Women's Soul Rights – Female Deep Singers Collection ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $13.99
A great collection of female soul – one that focuses on the deep soul styles promised by the title, but which also follows the mode through the end of the 70s into the 80s – when some great transformations were taking place in the music! You'll definitely recognize some classics in a more familiar southern-inflected mode – but the set also has tracks from a time when more evolved elements were coming into the music, too – changing things up, and adding even more personal power to the vocals! Titles include "Mom & Dad 1980" by Coffee, "You're Just What I Need" by Betty Wright, "Will You Be My Man" by Quiet Elegance, "Guess I'm Gonna Have To Say Goodbye" by Sharon Ridley, "Take Me With You" by Honey Cone, "I Shall Not Be Moved" by Freda Payne, "He Keeps Something Groovy Goin On" by Gwen McCrae, "With Pen In Hand" by Dorothy Moore, "Can You Smell My Love Burning" by Wild Honey, and "When The Next Tear Trop Falls" by Rhonda Clark.

VariousSuper Breaks 2 – Essential Jazz, Soul and Funk Breakbeats ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99 22.99
Classic breaks – all the way through – the kind of sharp funky nuggets that have had a rich new life, thanks to their use in hip hop and club tracks in recent years! This may not be the most underground stuff in the world to those out there who've been digging through crates for funk and soul for the past ten years, but it is an exquisite compilation that features some of the best funky tracks used as samples by hip hoppers, nearly every one of them a famous cut that you'll probably recognize in a minute! Titles include "I Like It" by The Emotions, "Dance To The Drummer's Beat" by Herman Kelly, "Cramp Your Style" by All The People, "Hard Times" by Baby Huey, "Ghetto: Misfortune's Wealth" by 24 Carat Black, "Kool Is Back" by Funk Inc, "Our Generation" by Ernie Hines, "Heaven & Hell" by 20th Century Steel Band, "Unhooked Generation" by Freda Payne, "Papa Was, Too" by Joe Tex, "Just A Groove In G" by Wilbur Bascomb & The Zodiac, "Be Thankful For What You Got" by William De Vaughn, and "You're Getting A Little Too Smart" by The Detroit Emeralds. 18 cuts in all!

✨✧ VariousWorld We Live In – Holland/Dozier/Holland Compilation (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Invictus/Demon (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Massive soul from the start of the 70s – some of the heaviest cuts ever put together by the Holland Dozier Holland team – all issued on their own family of labels after the trio split with Motown! The work here is way deeper than their Motown sides – maybe more in the territory of Norman Whitfield, Westbound Records, and some of the other great work coming out in that second wave of soul from Detroit – more progressive and more righteous overall, often with more emphasis on the bottom groove too! As you'd guess from the cover, the tunes all appeared on the HDH labels Invictus, Hot Wax, and Music Merchant – and titles include "Cheeba" by The 8th Day, "New Breed Kinda Woman" by Lamont Dozier, "Love Factory" by Eloise Laws, "Sliced Tomatoes" by The Just Brothers, "Crumbs Off The Table" by Laura Lee, "Working On A Building Of Love" by Chairmen Of The Board, "Unhooked Generation" by Freda Payne, "Sunday Morning People" by Harrison Kennedy, "Don't Leave Me (inst)" by Lamont Dozier, "Breakdown" by Parliament, "I Shall Not Be Moved" by Barrino Brothers, "Sittin On A Time Bomb" by Lee Charles, "The World We Live In" by The Politicians, "I'm Bugging Your Phone (part 1)" by Smith Connection, "I Got It (part 1)" by New York Port Authority, and "Want Ads" by Honey Cone.
