Gene ChandlerBrunswick Complete Singles Collection ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
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!

Gene ChandlerLive At The Regal ... CD
Collectables, 1965. Used ... $6.99
This landmark live recording by the great Chicago soul singer Gene Chandler is one of the first-ever true live sets by a soul star, and a record that rival's James Brown's Live At the Apollo for true energy and excitement. Recorded live at Chicago's Regal Theater for the long-gone Constellation Records, this set's an amazing batch of tracks performed with more emotion and soul than Gene ever had in the studio, and the crowd's a wild batch of kids who are totally over the top with enthusiasm. The classic version of "Rainbow '65" on here is enough proof of that, what with it's stretched out harmonies, mind-blowing falsetto, and crazy crowd screaming – but there's lots more on here that will prove that Gene was one of the best-ever Chicago singers, including "Song Called Soul", "Just Be True", and "What Now". Great stuff, and totally worth having, even if you don't like Collectables. CD

Gene ChandlerThere Was A Time (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99 About July 21, 2021
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". CD features lots of bonus tracks too, all duets with Barbara Acklin – including "Love Won't Start", "From The Teacher To The Preacher", "Show Me The Way To Go", "Anywhere But Nowhere", "Little Green Apples", and "Will I Find Love" CD

Gene ChandlerTwo Sides Of Gene Chandler ... LP
Brunswick, 1969. Very Good- ... $7.99
A fantastic lost album by the great Gene Chandler – and one of his most sophisticated soul documents! The record was Gene's last album for Brunswick – issued shortly before Gene scored big once again on Mercury, which is why it's probably often lost in the shuffle of time. The record's got some incredibly dark material that shows a different side of Gene than you'd expect from earlier hits – including the incredible track "Suicide", which is a magnificent "Iceman" track in the Chicago tradition, that features the main character contemplating suicide as a means of dealing with his sorrow. Other titles include "If You Would Love Me", "The Sun Died", "This Bitter Earth", "Eleanor Rigby", and a remake of "Can I Change My Mind". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousDedicated To You – Lowrider Love (clear swirl vinyl pressing) (2021 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Craft, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $26.99
The sound of soul, served up East LA style – which means that the collection is overflowing with sweet soul numbers that have a very heartbreaking vibe! These aren't the kind of muscle-heavy cuts you'd guess from the image of the car on the cover – and instead, they're fragile and mellow – a really well-chosen batch of rare cuts from indie labels, all of which played bit in East LA back in the day! There's a nice dose of Latin soul ballads in the mix too – and titles include "Accept Me" by Harvey Averne Dozen, "Two Lovers Make One Fool" by The Serenaders, "Nothing But Nothing" by The Dontells, "Tragic" by The Sheppards, "Negrona" by Ralfi Pagan, "I'll Be Sweeter Tomorrow" by Joe Bataan, "Me & You" by Brenton Wood, "Maybe" by Ralph Robles, "Man's Temptation" by Gene Chandler, "Dedicated To The One I Love" by The Temprees, and "That You Love Me" by The Impressions.

✨✧ VariousBrunswick Northern Soul ... LP
Brunswick/Demon (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Brilliant work from one of the greatest soul labels ever – the mighty mighty Brunswick Records, home to some of the greatest work coming out of Chicago in the 60s and early 70s! The set really does a great job of moving past the hits – bringing together an assortment of hard to find tracks that mostly originally appeared on 45, and which were done by some of the more obscure artists who recorded for the label. Brunswick titles have appeared on so many compilations that you might pass this one by – but don't, because it's filled with great bits that go way past the obvious! Titles include "Suddenly" by Tony Drake, "Sweetest Thing" by Channel 3, "Bet You Never Thought" by Gene Chandler, "The Chase Is On" by The Artistics, "I'll Bet You" by Billy Butler, "Oh Linda" by Leroy Taylor, "Don't Take It Out On This World" by Adams Apples, "Have More Time" by Marvin Smith, "I'm In Danger" by The Visitors, and "Keep Your Chin Up" by Jackie Ross.

✨✧ VariousClub Soul Vol 2 – The Twisted Wheel – Brazennose & Whitworth Street Manchester 1963 to 1971 ... CD
Charly (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The story of one of the most legendary soul clubs in the UK – home to the great wave of Northern Soul enthusiasm that burst big in the 60s – plus a fair bit of hanky panky as well! This collection shows a decidedly raw side of the club's roots – American soul from the 60s, plus a fair bit of R&B as well – a groove that's rougher than you might find on other Northern Soul collections – which often tend towards some of the tighter Detroit productions of the period. The CD features a whopping 28 tracks in all – with lots of tracks from Chicago and the Motor City – and titles include "Road Runner" by Bo Diddley, "Good Times" by Gene Chandler, "Turn On Your Lovelight" by Bobby Blue Bland, "Do The 45" by The Sharpees, "Get Down With It" by Bobby Marchan, "I Spy For The FBI" by Jamo Thomas, "And Get Away" by The Esquires, "I Can't See Your Love" by The Ballads, "Searchin" by Alvin Robinson, and "You Shot Me Through The Grease" by Alvin Cash.
