✨✧ IzyIrene ... LP
Hope Street (Australia), 2021. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Izy's an Australian trio, but they've got a strong influence from American soul from the 70s onward – yet have a way of coming up with a groove that's lean, and very much their own! Instrumentation is just guitar, bass, and drums – but used with a sense of richness that really comes across well – as do the vocals, which are handled by all three members of the trio, who also make things feel much richer than just a few lyrics thrown over funky rhythms! There's some very fresh, inventive rhythms on the set – a sound that sets these guys apart, and which hardly makes them a copycat version of their heroes – as you'll discover on tracks that include "Moon", "No Further Than You", "They Don't Care", "Not So Tall", "Smile", "Treat Me Bad", and "Don't Turn Off Your Light". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Emma Donovan & The PutbacksCrossover ... LP
Hope Street (Australia), 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic work from Australian soul singer Emma Donovan – an artist who's grown greatly in the space between her last album with The Putbacks – to a point where she and the group really stand apart from most other records of this nature! This isn't a funk group doing a retro thing with a female singer in the lead – and instead, the whole thing is a very well-crafted soul record – not entirely contemporary, but really free of overdone 60s and 70s modes – as the Putbacks often move in slow-stepping funky styles, which really lets the deep deep sound of Emma's vocals build and resonate powerfully over the righteous lyrics of the tunes. The record's got the kind of global appeal that will have you shuffling away your recent Mavis Staples albums for the younger, more personal vibe that Donovan and the group bring here – on titles that include "Mob March", "Crossover", "Don't Give Up On Me", "Leftovers", "Pretty One", and "Hold On".

Mark IIIMarvin Whoremonger ... CD
Black Lite/Now Again, 1976. New Copy ... $9.99 20.98
One of the weirdest funk records you'll ever hope to own – an obscure concept album on the life and loves of a Las Vegas hustler! The set's got the gritty street-level vibe you'd expect from its cover – a very stripped-down, homegrown studio effort that features vocalist Marvin Neroes backed by a small three piece funk combo – in a mode that's almost like a garage-styled version of a blacksploitation soundtrack! There's less of the full strings and horns of those sorts of records, though – although the album does get a bit of sweetening at times – but the overall approach is a lot more gritty, and really fits the spirit of the songs well – very unusual tracks that include "Sex In Motion", "Pusher Man", "Street Scene", "Funky Heaven", "Going To The Top", and "The Party's Over". Great reissue features full notes on the unusual project – and bonus tracks too! CD
Also available Marvin Whoremonger (with bonus download) ... LP 44.99

✨✧ Steve MarcusCount's Rock Band/The Lord's Prayer ... CD
Collectables/Vortex, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Nice 2-fer that brings together both of the albums recorded by reed player Steve Marcus for Vortex – the short-lived Herbie Mann-run subsidiary of Atlantic. The CD's a nice messed-up batch of slightly-funky, slightly-rocky jazz, with a tripped out kind of sound that shows the early rumblings of a funky fusion movement. Marcus plays electric and acoustic sax here, in a vein that's a bit similar to some of Tom Scott's wilder early sessions, and he's backed by some similarly-minded players, like Larry Coryell, Bob Moses, Mike Nock, Herbie Hancock, and Larry Clark. Titles include "Theresa's Blues", "Scarborough Fair", "Ooh Baby", "Hope", "Wild Thing", "T With Strings", "Hey Jude", "America", and "Back Street Girl". CD

✨✧ Bill WithersJust As I Am/Still Bill ... CD
Sussex/Raven (Australia), 1971/1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the most righteous soul of the 70s – the first two albums by Bill Withers, back to back on one CD, and with bonus tracks! Bill had a sound like nobody else – a blend of folksy guitar, deeply soulful vocals, spare funky backings, and the occasional touch of strings and larger orchestrations – just enough to take things to the next level, but not too much to bury Bill's shining light. The albums are filled with tunes that are both mainstream and underground soul classics – tunes you might have heard a million times, but which never get old, next to others that you'd never caught before, soon to become new favorites. The CD features the tracks "Harlem", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Grandma's Hands", "Hope She'll Be Happier", "Moanin & Groanin", "Better Off Dead", "I Don't Know", "Lean On Me", "Use Me", "Lonely Town Lonely Street", "Let Me In Your Life", "Who Is He & What Is He To You", and "Kissin My Love". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "Better Days", from the soundtrack to Man & Boy, and "It's All Over Now", a duet with Bobby Womack! CD

✨✧ NasIt Was Written ... LP
Columbia/Get On Down, 1996. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The second album, and even if it's not as dope as as the mythical Illmatic, but how could anyone hope to live up to those expectations? The Trakmasters come up with some nice beats, chided for being a bit on the commercial side by critics at the time, but they've aged a lot better than most street rap chart fodder at the time. Lyrically Nas is still on point, and going back to this record, especially considering a few of the ones he's dropped since, it wears well with the test of time. Includes "Street Dreams", "If I Ruled The World", "Affirmative Action" and "Black Girl Lost" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
