✨✧ George & Gwen McCraeTogether ... LP
Cat, 1975. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A Miami soul classic from the 70s – and a legendary pairing of George and Gwen McCrae – with results that soar past the individual work by the pair! Gwen's vocals are killer – deep, soulful, and still with the bite of her own TK albums – and the grooves here echo a bit more of George's world, but in a way that really makes for great interplay between the two singers – a back/forth sort of energy that pushes things away from any sleepy moments and throwaway tracks – and which also offers up a great 70s Miami take on the soul duo mode of the 60s. The record includes the wonderful "I'll Do The Rocking", plus "Mechanical Body", "Winners Together Or Losers Apart", "The Rub", "You And I Were Made For Each Other", "Let Your Love Do The Talking", and "I'm Coming At You". LP, Vinyl record album

Gwen McCraeGwen McCrae (1974) ... CD
Cat/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
A landmark album from the Miami soul scene of the 70s – the record that put Gwen McCrae on the map, and showed to the world that the TK sound was about to dominate the charts! There's a really unique groove to the set – part older southern soul, part percolated electric modes – that funky groove that Little Beaver, Timmy Thomas, and some of Gwen's TK contemporaries had been cooking up at the time. Both Beaver and Thomas are working on the sessions – as are Willie Clark, Latimore, and George Perry – and even the backup vocals are hip – with help from George McCrae, Betty Wright, and KC of Sunshine Band fame. But throughout it all, Gwen's the real star – singing with an impeccable vocal approach that's full of soul, yet never overdone – heard to amazing effect on the classic track "90% Of Me" – and other gems that include "For Your Love", "He Keeps Something Groovy Going On", "It Keeps On Raining", "He Don't Ever Lose His Groove", "Move Me Baby", and "Let Them Talk".

Gwen McCraeLet's Straighten It Out ... LP
Cat, 1978. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A killer bit of southern soul from Gwen McCrae – one that's in the best tradition of Miami work of the time, but which also takes Gwen into even deeper territory vocally! The record's got a mature depth that we totally love – a quality that shows the key "adult" transitions that were going on in the Miami studios of the 70s – as southern soul was shaking off its rougher roots, and going for a more sophisticated audience – yet still managed to keep all the raw power and honest emotion that made the genre so great in the first place. Most tracks here are in a mellow or midtempo mode, and there's surprisingly little club-oriented tracks on the set. Titles include a killer remake of Latimore's "Let's Straighten It Out", plus "Love Insurance", "Cradle Of Love", "At Bedtime", and "Early Morning Love", an excellent number by the great Sam Dees.

✨✧ Gwen McCraeSomething So Right ... LP
Cat, 1976. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Sexy soul from the great Gwen McCrae – a key follow-up to her massive Rockin Chair, and an album that showed that she could go a lot deeper than just crossover soul! Given Gwen's contribution to the early disco years, the record's got a surprisingly laidback feel – classic female southern soul at its best, with a number of tracks that hit a great sort of late nite, lovelorn sort of mode – almost like some of Ann Sexton's work from the time. Other tunes pick up the groove a bit more, but still go for more of a funky soul sort of style than a disco one – and all tracks really make the best use of Gwen's deep soul vocals. Clarence Reid wrote most of the material, and great cuts include "Love Without Sex", "Something So Right", "Tears On My Pillow", "Mr. Everything", "Damn Right It's Good", and "Iron Woman". LP, Vinyl record album

Reid IncReid Inc ... CD
TK/Solid (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $19.99
An obscure female soul project from 70s-era TK Records – one that features production by Clarence Reid, hence the group's name! The groove here is very much in the best Miami club mode of the time – upbeat, but still nicely gritty overall – more fast funk in the instrumentation, with slight touches of strings – and vocals from the quartet that slide nicely into the rhythms, which themselves bear plenty of TK touches! The whole thing's got a feel that's a lot better than you might guess from the cover – kind of a rougher take on the Gwen McCrae vibe of the time, almost set loose to do things with a more relaxed approach overall. And the vocals are surprisingly strong at points too – with one singer coming to the forefront with a deeper soul mode than you might expect. Titles include "I'll Be Damned If It's Me", "What Am I Gonna Do", "Push Me Back In The Corner", "More Of A Woman", "That's How It Is When You Are In Love", "New York City", and "This Time Tomorrow".

VariousCover Me – The Eddie Hinton Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.98
We'd put the great Eddie Hinton right up there with Dann Penn and Spooner Oldham for southern soul songwriting genius – and like that pair, Eddie never got as much time in the spotlight as he did in the background – where his genius for a heartfelt tune helped give more than a few artists some great success over the years! This package is a long-overdue look at Hinton's mighty talents with a tune – and it includes a great mix of soul, rock, and pop artists taking on some of his finest work – mostly recordings from that late 60s/early 70s time when Eddie was working at full capacity – and lending his talents to some killer tracks coming out of the Muscle Shoals scene. Most numbers have a deep soul vibe – even the rock ones – and titles include "Cover Me" by Jackie Moore, "Down In Texas" by Oscar Toney Jr, "Every Natural Thing" by Aretha Franklin, "Love Waits For No Man" by Al Johnson, "Lay It On Me" by Gwen McCrae, "Poor Mary Has Drowned" by Brick Wall, "Masquerade" by Don Varner, "A Little Bit Salty" by Bobby Womack, "Sure As Sin" by Candi Staton, "300 Pounds Of Hongry" by Tony Joe White, "Always David" by Sweet Inspirations, "Where's Eddie" by Lulu, "Breakfast In Bed" by Dusty Springfield, "If I Had Let You In" by The Box Tops, "Home For The Summer" by The Hour Glass, "People In Love" by Lou Johnson, and "Where You Come From" by Bonnie Bramlett.

VariousMessage From TK – It's A Miami Modern Soul World ... CD
TK/Solid (Japan), Late 70s. New Copy ... $23.99
A soulful message from the 70s – served up here on a collection that focuses on a mighty nice side of the TK Records label from back in the day! TK hit big fame with its Miami spin on disco in the mid 70s, but the label also had a great ear for other sorts of soul music too – and here, the focus is on the warmer, more sophisticated modern soul tracks that marked their output away from the chart hits – work created in the south, but with a hip vibe that resonates strongly with the best work in New York, Philly, or other northern cities. The tracks are all hand-picked by DJ Ryuhei The Man – who also does his own edits of a few tracks – and the set also features some rare singles from artists who never recorded a full album for TK. Titles include "All This Love That I'm Givin" by Gwen McCrae, "I Like My Birdie" by Leno Phillips, "Keep Her Happy" by Phillip Wright, "Never Had A Love So Good" by Charles Johnson, "Bessie" by JBs Wedge, "It's Your Sweet Love" by Jimmy Bo Horne, "The Way We Life" by Raw Soul Express, "Where Is The Love" by Betty Wright, "Listen To My Heartbeat" by Little Beaver, "Human (Ryuhei The Man express 45 edit)" by Brief Encounter, "What Am I Gonna Do (Ryuhei The Man Miami 45 edit)" by Reid Inc, and "Be With Me (Ryuhei The Man Miami 45 edit)" by Milton Wright.

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ Betty WrightDanger High Voltage (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Alston/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Massive music from Betty Wright – an album that really has her coming into her own – and showing the world how great Miami soul can be, when it's done this right! The album's overflowing with key help from TK legends like Willie Clarke, Clarence Reid, Steve Alaimo, and KC – all of whom bring in a cool shifting set of grooves to really expand Betty's style – still with all the charm of her early hits, yet also showing a classy, sophisticated side that we never would have expected before – a vibe that's even more powerful than Gwen McCrae on her albums from the time. Titles include the classic "Tonight's the Night" – made famous in a later live take, but done here in the original studio version – plus the tracks "Show Your Girl", "Where Is The Love", "Everybody Was Rockin", "Love Don't Grow On A Love Tree", "Don't Thank Me Baby Thank Yourself", and "Shoorah Shoorah". CD features 5 bonus tracks "Value Your Love", "My Baby Ain't My Baby Anymore", "It's Bad For Me To See You", "Secretary", and "One Thing Leads To Another". CD
