Howard HewettI'm For Real – The Elektra Recordings 1986 to 1992 (I Commit To Love/Forever & Ever/Howard Hewett/Allegiance/bonus tracks) (4CD set) ... CD
Elektra/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy 4CD ... $29.99 40.99
Howard Hewett may have came a bit late on the scene in 80s soul – but by the end of the decade, he really left his mark – as you'll hear on these four classic albums, served up with lots of bonus tracks too! First up is I Commit To Love – an 80s classic from Howard Hewett, and just the kind of set that made the singer one of the freshest voices in soul at the time! Hewett's vocals are lean and right on the money – perfectly suited to fit the 80s groove mode of the backings – especially the bubbly, bouncy kind of cuts that were always Howard's catchiest numbers – and which, honestly, should have had him crossing over much bigger at the time! Beats and keyboards glide along nicely throughout – and titles include "Stay", "Say Amen", "I Got 2 Go", "Last Forever", "I Commit To Love", "Love Don't Wanna Wait", and "Let's Try It All Over Again". Forever & Ever has a nice degree of crackle all the way through – that snappy, soulful style that Hewett did so well back in the day – working here as almost a one-man powerhouse on production and arrangements too! The tunes are catchy, but never too crossover – and Hewett has this way of bringing in a subtle drama on the upbeat tracks, while avoiding some of the cliches of his contemporaries – then sliding into some mellower moments that really hold the album together strongly. Production is definitely in a late 80s R&B mode, but with a style that really sets it apart – and titles include "Strange Relationship", "This Time", "Good Bye Good Friend", "Challenge", "Natural Love", "Once Twice Three Times", "Shakin My Emotion", and "Share A Love". The self-titled Howard Hewett set is standard-setting album from Howard Hewett – the kind of record that made him a dominant force in soul at the start of the 80s, and for good reason too! Hewett knocks it out of the park with the very first tune – his great duet with Anita Baker on "When Will It Be" – then flows wonderfully through a set of tracks that build with a nice sense of subtle drama, and use enough of the best contemporary elements to remind us that we're in the world of soul, not pop – on cuts that include "Don't Give In", "If I Could Only Have That Day Back", "Show Me", "I Do", "Let Me Show You How To Fall In Love", and "I Know You'll Be Comin Back". Allegiance is one of the biggest albums ever from Howard Hewett – already a superstar in 90s soul by the time of its release, and a master of the new sort of quiet storm that was taking over in the decades! The beats are a bit heavier than the years before – that lesson that mainstream R&B was starting to learn from the streets – while still keeping the best focus on the sort of romantic charms that first got Hewett noticed in the first place, on a set of tracks that have a gently-stepping vibe throughout. Titles include "Can't Get Over Your Love", "Say You Will", "Masquerade", "Ronnie O", "Save Your Sex For Me", "Can We Try Again", "Allegiance", "Just Like A Woman", and "To Thee I Pray". Bonus tracks include the duet with Roberta Flack on "Let Me Be A Light To Shine", one with David Sanborn on "Got To Give It Up" – and tracks that include "Stay (before midnight mix)", "Ten Commandments Of Love", "Strange Relationship (ext)", "If I Could Only Have That Day Back (12" ext voc)", "Obsession", and "I Can't Tell You Why".

✨✧ Howard HewettIt's Time ... CD
Caliber, 1994. Used ... Out Of Stock
Ex-Shalamar vocalist Howard Hewett cut this smooth set of modern soul tracks for Expansion a few years back, with himself at the production helm, and a batch of tracks that were mostly self-penned (one of the exceptions to that is a nice cover of Marvin Gaye's "Just To Keep You Satisfied".) Other cuts include "How Do I Know I Love You", "For The Lover In You", and "On & On". Nice stuff, with the usual high-quality modern soul sound of the other releases on Expansion. CD

ShalamarBig Fun ... CD
Solar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A definite bit of Big Fun from Shalamar – totally tight and very much at the top of their game – making the transition from disco modes to leaner 80s groove, thanks to lots of great production and songwriting help from Leon Sylvers! Sylvers was really emerging as one of the key forces on Solar Records at the time – and he does a great job here of shaping the trio's strong vocals – which includes work by Howard Hewett and Jody Watley – both of whom are right at home on the album's groovers. Titles include their classic "The Second Time Around", plus "Girl", "The Right Time For Us", "Right In The Socket", and "Take Me to The River". CD

✨✧ Greg PhillinganesPulse ... LP
Planet, 1985. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Greg's definitely showing off all his chops on this one – working with help from a huuuge array of famous guest stars – including The Pointer Sisters, James Ingram, Howard Hewett, Jackie Jackson, Michael Jackson, Robbie Nevil, and others. And while the bulk of the record really shows the influence of these mainstream 80s soul artists – and not always in a good way – the record also sports a brilliant tune done with Donald Fagan of Steely Dan, the sweetly grooving "Lazy Nina", which sounds like the best work off Fagan's Nightfly, and has Greg and Don duetting on vocals! Titles include "Behind The Mask", "Signals", "Shake It", "Countdown To Love", "Come As You Are", and "Playin With Fire". LP, Vinyl record album
