Gene Chandler'80 ... LP
Chi Sound/20th Century, 1980. Sealed ... $7.99
A nice record of modern soul that got a bit overlooked at the time because of the poor fate of the Chi-Sound label. The record's filled with Chicago soul talent like Tom Tom 84, Sonny Sanders, and Carl Davis, and it's a good updating of Gene's Chicago soul sound towards a style that's more modern soul-oriented. We've got a huge soft spot for the track "Does She Have A Friend?", which is a nice two-step groover, and the LP includes a number of other nice ones like "All About The Paper", "Let Me Make Love to You", and a remake of his classic, called "Rainbow '80". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gene ChandlerGene Chandler Situation ... LP
Mercury, 1970. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Killer stuff from Gene! After recording a few sadly overlooked albums for Brunwsick, Gene hit big big big with this killer record on Mercury! The record virtually defines the Chicago soul sound of the late 60s – with arrangements by Tom Tom, production by Gene, and a great loping soul groove – but the best part of all is Gene, who's an amazing singer with a maturity that stretches years beyond his earlier hits, and which put him in a camp with the best of his generation. The songwriting is excellent throughout, with a great mix of uptempo numbers and heartbreakingly personal ones. Titles include "Groovy Situation", "Simply Call It Love", "Not The Marrying Kind", "Give Me a Chance", and "Hey, Little Angel". LP, Vinyl record album

Gene ChandlerGet Down ... LP
Chi Sound/20th Century, 1978. Very Good+ ... $1.99
The legendary Gene Chandler gets down, and gets down good – in this classic late 70s set of clubby numbers and upbeat groovers! The set's one of the best moments on the Chi-Soul series from producer Carl Davis – and features a nicely evolved version of earlier Chicago soul modes from Tom Tom 84 and Sonny Sanders – both of whom push an older Brunswick style into some smoother, more sophisticated modern soul territory! Chandler's vocals are wonderful, as always – and have a catchy snapping feel on the groovers, mixed with surprisingly deep soul on the few mellower moments. Titles include a remake of "Please Sunrise", plus "I'm The Travelin Kind", "Get Down", "Tomorrow I May Not Feel The Same", "Greatest Love Ever Known", and "What Now". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has name in pen, a trace of a sticker, and light wear.)

Gene ChandlerSoul Master ... CD
MCA, Mid 60s. Used ... $8.99
An odd collection of tracks, but they're all great, and the set's an excellent batch of some of Chandler's harder-to-find material from the mid and late 60s! The tracks are pulled from his years at Chess, Brunswick, and Mercury (one of the advantages of the recent Universal/Polygram merger!) – and there's a total of 10 songs, including "Rainbow '65 (part 2)", "To Be True", "Groovy Situation", "I Won't Need You", "Think Nothing About It", "From The Teacher To The Preacher", "To Be A Lover", "I Fooled You This Time", "River Of Tears", and "Nothing Can Stop Me".

Solid Smoke, Late 50s/Early 60s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A fantastic collection of Gene's early work – with a strong focus on the many styles he used at the time, and some of the more obscure numbers he cut for the Constellation label. Robert Pruter provided some great notes – and titles include "Festival Of Love", "I Wake Up Crying", "Song Called Soul", "Just Be True", "What Now", "Rainbow 65 (complete version)", "Walk On With The Duke", "Man's Temptation", "Bless Our Love", "You Can't Hurt Me No More", "The Big Lie", and "If You Can't Be True".

✨✧ Gene ChandlerJust Be True ... CD
Collectables/Constellation, 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
Just Be True is the kind of CD that's essential to fans of Chicago soul! The original album (on the tiny Constellation label) is totally rare, and this CD brings it back to light, along with 4 bonus cuts that were 45s Chandler recorded at the same time. This stuff takes Gene to another level, way past his early "Duke Of Earl" days, and it features some amazing Chicago soul from the city's richest years. There's 16 cuts in all, and titles include "Just Be True", "Pretty Little Girl", "Tear For Tear", "Think Nothing About It", "So Many Ways", and "Check Yourself". CD

✨✧ Gene ChandlerThere Was A Time (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Jackie WilsonDo Your Thing (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
A very cool groove from Jackie Wilson – a record that still holds onto all the great vocal range of his roots, but also pushes into a hipper late 60s style that's pretty darn nice! Wilson's really at home in the setting – re-emerging as a more mature, confident singer with a lot better choice of material, too – none of the mis-steps of his early 60s Brunswick years, and instead the kind of cuts that put him in territory next to Gene Chandler or Jerry Butler. The arrangements are mostly by Sonny Sanders – with a bit of help from Johnny Pate and Tom Tom Washington – all cats who keep things in some really great territory, and actually bring a bit of funk into the mix as well. Titles include "To Change My Love", "Why Don't You Do Your Thing", "Light My Fire", "Helpless", "Eleanor Rigby", and "Hold On I'm Comin". CD features three bonus tracks – "Do It The Right Way", "I Still Love You", and "Hum De Dum De Do". CD

VariousBirth Of Soul Vol 2 – Seminal Early 60s Sides That Reflect Soul Music's Gospel, R&B & Vocal Group Roots ... CD
Kent (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Soul music didn't just spring into the world fully-formed – and instead, the genre was the result of years of give-and-take between a variety of genres in the generation before – gospel, blues, jazz, and R&B – with maybe even a bit of influence from rock and country thrown in for good measure! And although the genre's most associated with the 60s, when it really took off, the music was still very much in a formative state at the start of the decade – a time when all the different elements, different scenes, and different artists were working in a huge variety of ways. This set brings together key tracks from the time that really helped get the soul train moving forward – a wonderful lineup of 28 titles that includes "Lipstick Traces" by Benny Spellman, "Standing In The Shadows" by Kenny Gamble, "Man's Temptation" by Gene Chandler, "I'm Counting On You" by The Freeman Brothers, "Come Tomorrow" by Marie Knight, "Heart Full Of Love" by The Invincibles, "Um, Um, Um, Um, Um, Um" by Major Lance, "Cry To Me" by Betty Harris, "I Found A Love" by The Falcons, "Always Accused" by Willie Tee, "I'll Give My Life" by Brenda Holloway, "Here's A Heart" by The Diplomats, "The Wrong Girl" by The Showmen, "Long Haired Daddy" by Vernell Hill, and loads more!

VariousBrunswick Funk ... LP
Brunswick/Demon (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $34.99 39.99
The funkier sound of Brunswick Records – mostly tracks taken from that second generation of the label, when they were operating out of studios in Chicago, and coming up with as many cool cuts as you'd find on Chess Records at the time! There's a really freewheeling approach to the music here – so that although many of the cuts feature great soul vocalists, they've also got a massive groove too – and the Chicago cuts are followed by a few very rare numbers from the final years of Brunswick, from artists who were even more off the beaten path of mainstream soul at the time! Titles include "Break Your Back" by Willie Henderson, "Shake A Leg" by Jackie Wilson, "Do The Whoopie" by Sugarpie DiSanto, "Cash Money" by Step By Step, "This Is The Lost Generation (inst)" by Lost Generation, "Soul Strut" by Floyd Smith, "Light My Fire" by Erma Franklin, "Just Ain't No Love" by Young Holt Unlimited, "There Was A Time" by Gene Chandler, "Give It Up" by The Eliminators, and "St Albans Strut" by Total Eclipse.

VariousCurtis Mayfield's Chicago Soul ... CD
Okeh/Legacy, Mid 60s/1995. Used ... $9.99
Although Curtis Mayfield isn't featured as an artist on this compilation, he did play a big part in either penning or producing most of these classic Chicago soul tracks for the city's legendary Okeh label. Some of these tracks were the stuff of 60's soul chart hits, but most of them are pretty darn tough to find these days. This set manages to cull together 18 of the biggest Okeh tracks, plus a few other lesser-known goodies that we almost never see. Titles include "You Can't Hurt Me No More" by The Opals, "Gotta Get Away" by Billy Butler & The Enchanters, "Funny (Not Much)" by Walter jackson, "Good Times" by Gene Chandler, "I'm The One Who Loves You" by Major Lance, "Patty Cake" by The Artistics, and lots more!

Craft, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $21.99 24.99
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.

Brunswick/Octave (Japan), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $12.99 14.99
DJ Muro mixes it up with the catalog of legendary soul label Brunswick Records – really digging deep into output of the mighty imprint – to come up with a wicked pastiche of funky tunes that includes bits of 40 tracks in all! The mix is more complicated than some of Muro's other outings – and while he still leaves in the best core of each tune, he also weaves them together in a wonderful way that draws definite strands together in Brunswick production, instrumentation, and songwriting – a wonderful tribute to the Chicago soul genius that flourished on the label at the end of the 60s and start of the 70s. The package features way too many snippets to mention here – but includes work from Ginji James, The Lost Generation, Tyron Davis, Bohannon, Lost Generation, Gregory James Edition, Fred Hughes, The Chi-Lites, Erma Franklin, The Eliminators, Exit 9, Gene Chandler, The Directions, Barbara Acklin, Young Holt Unlimited, and many more!

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.

An excellent batch of Chicago soul – featuring work by a host of artists who had been recording for the Vee Jay label before it folded, plus others who were cutting some great underground work in the windy city 60s scene. The Constellation label only lasted a few short years, but it released some excellent work at the time – and this collection of singles from the label is just about the only way you'll track down some of these excellent Chicago soul gems. Titles include "One Thin Dime" by Holly Maxwell, "Uncle Willie Time" by Bobby Miller, "Baby Baby" by Sonny Holiday, "Empty Arms & Bitter Tears" by Gerri Taylor, "Don't Use Me" by Nolan Chance, "Simon Says" by Bobby Miller, "I Gotta Find a New Love" by Lee Dorsey, "No More Tears" by The Impellas, "Wish You Were Here" by Gene Chandler, "Baby Think It Over" by The Peaches, "Let Him Go For Himself" by Holly Maxwell, and "Just Like The Weather" by Nolan Chance. 25 cuts in all!

✨✧ VariousPeople Get Ready – The Curtis Mayfield Songbook ... CD
Kent/Ace (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Curtis Mayfield is a hell of a singer – as most folks know from his work in the Impressions, and his later solo classics of the 70s – and he's also a hell of a songwriter too, one who was very generous with his magical material, right from the start! Back in the 60s, Curtis was sharing his songs with other up-and-coming soul singers on the Chicago scene – some of whom he was also producing in the studio, as well – and as the decade moved into the 70s, others were soon picking up Mayfield's tunes – both for their ability to deliver a personal message, and for the larger political agenda that was always in the music too! This really well-done collection brings together two dozen of Curtis' best songs, handled by other folks – mostly from the 60s and early 70s, but with a few surprises from later years too – all supported with a really great collection of notes and other information too. Titles include "Man's Temptation" by the Jackson 5, "Behind The Curtains" by Jan Bradley, "Rainbow (alt)" by Gene Chandler, "Monkey Time" by The Miracles, "I'm So Proud" by Main Ingredient, "Give Me Your Love" by Barbara Mason, "That's What Love Will Do" by The Gaylads, "Never Stop Loving Me" by Keni Burke, "I've Been Trying" by Jerry Butler, "Queen Majesty" by The Techniques, "It's All Over" by Walter Jackson, "Mama Didn't Lie" by The Orlons, "He Will Break Your Heart" by Freddie Scott, "People Get Ready" by Dionne Warwick, "Need To Belong" by Isaac Hayes, "Make Me Believe In You" by Patti Jo, "Let's Do It Again (single edit)" by The Staple Singers, "Look Into Your Heart (single edit)" by Aretha Franklin, and "The Makings Of You" by Gladys Knight & The Pips.

Stellar soul singles on Brunswick – nearly all of which come from the prime mid-to-late 60s period at the legendary Chicago label – with Jackie Wilson, Billy Butler, Barbara Acklin, Gene Chandler, Erma Franklin, Lavern Baker and many more! There's a tight focus here on mid-to-late 60s Brunswick – all of them great – and many are quite rare. There are some modest or regional hits in the set, but most might have been forgotten if not for the devotion of the Northern Soul scenes to come. It's got a number of uptempo stormers, midtempo groovers and some sweet surprises. Soul galore, indeed! Includes "Soul Galore" by Jackie Wilson, "Have More Time" by Marvin Smith, "Oh Linda" by Leroy Taylor, "I'll Bet You" by Billy Butler, "There Was A Time" by Gene Chandler, "Sweet, Sweet Revenge" by Alvin Valentine, "A Strange Way" by The Loreleis, "Just Ain't No Love" by Barbara Acklin, "I'm The Only One To Do It" by Lavern Baker, "California Montage" by Young-Holt Unlimited and many more.

The 4CDs lay out all the Vee Jay classics we could think of and loads of comparable rarities that are just as important to the label's maturation. The tunes are for the most part spun chronological to the recording and release dates, from the early back room blues and rumbling r&b of the 50s, to the spiritual soul later in the decade, to the benchmark soul of the 60s.

✨✧ Barbara AcklinLove Makes A Woman (with bonus track) ... CD
Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Barbara Acklin's first album – and a landmark of Chicago soul that firmly established Acklin as one of the city's best writers and new female singers! Acklin had a classy sound that was different than some of her raw soul sisters in the city – but although she was classy, she also didn't have any of that little girl stuff that you might hear from singers like Denice Chandler or Barbara Mason. Instead, she had an approach that mixed a real soul vocal with more sophisticated material, in a manner that worked well with the evolving blueprint for the Brunswick Chisoul sound. Carl Davis and Eugene Record do a perfect job producing Barbara's songs, all forged nicely into the loping soul groove that set Chicago apart from other cities in the late 60s. Includes the big title track "Love Makes A Woman" – plus "Be By My Side", "Your Sweet Loving", "Come and See Me Baby", and a great cover of "The Look of Love"! CD features the bonus track "Fool Fool Fool (Look In The Mirror)". CD
