Isley BrothersEverything You Always Wanted To Hear By The Isley Brothers But Were Afraid To Ask For ... LP
T Neck/CBS, 1976. Very Good ... $4.99

LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Isley BrothersGo For Your Guns ... LP
T Neck/Columbia, 1977. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
A funky album – but one that we love best for the mellow tracks! Sure, the Isleys could wear flashy suits and play some heavy guitar – but honestly, what we really love them for here are the laidback, loving tunes they do so well. The album includes 2 of their greatest ballad tracks ever – "Voyage To Atlantis" and "Footsteps In The Dark" – plus the midtempo tune "Tell Me When You Need It Again", another great track that almost has the same power as the other two. Other tracks include "Climbin Up The Ladder", "The Pride", and "Go For Your Guns". LP, Vinyl record album

Isley BrothersHeat Is On (expanded edition) ... CD
T Neck/Epic, 1975. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
A great mix of heavy funk and sweeter ballads from the Isley Brothers – and a record that's filled with two-part tracks that really let them stretch out and groove! The tunes have a bit more bass and keyboards than before – an approach that's even more electric than Isley funk of a few years back, and which steps out in some tightly vamping rhythms that still crackle with plenty of warmth and soul – especially on the mellower numbers, which dominate side two of the record, and really make this one worth having! Mellow tracks include "For The Love Of You (parts 1 & 2)", "Sensuality (parts 1 & 2)", and "Make Me Say It Again (parts 1 & 2)" – and funkier numbers include "Fight The Power (parts 1 & 2)", "The Heat Is On (parts 1 & 2)", and "Hope You Feel Better Love (parts 1 & 2)". CD also features a bonus track – a live version of "Fight The Power", recorded "live" in the studio, and never released before! CD

✨✧ Isley BrothersInside You ... LP
T Neck, 1981. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A strong extension of the Isley Brothers' funky 70s style – moving into a more compressed mode that had been taking hold of the group's style over the past few albums – giving them a smoother finish in the end, but one that actually brings out a deeper level of soul in the music! The balance is a bit hard to describe, but it's sort of an enrichment of a soulful quality that was always there in Isleys work, moved past some of the more familiar hit modes of the time. As always, we dig the mellow cuts best – especially the two part "Don't Hold Back Your Love", and the stepper "Welcome Into My Heart". Other tracks include "First Love", "Baby Hold On", and "Inside You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the lyric sleeve.)

✨✧ Isley BrothersInside You/Real Deal ... CD
T Neck/BGO (UK), 1981/1982. New Copy ... $8.99
Two early 80s groovers from the Isleys – on one great CD! Inside You is a strong extension of the group's funky 70s style – moving into a more compressed mode that had been taking hold of the group's style over the past few albums, giving them a smoother finish, but one that actually brought out some even more soulful feelings from their overall work. As always, we dig the mellow cuts best – especially the two part "Don't Hold Back Your Love", and the stepper "Welcome Into My Heart". Other tracks include "First Love", "Baby Hold On", and "Love Zone" and "Inside You". The Real Deal is authentic 80s grooving from the Isleys – mostly an album of upbeat, electro-grooving numbers that change up the style a bit more from their 70s funk work. But as usual for this period, they actually sound best on the ballads – clocking in with the sweet slow tune "All In My Lovers Eyes", and sounding even nicer on the anthemic "I'll Do It All For You" – a great little track with a bubbling, steppish groove. Other tracks include "The Real Deal", "Stone Cold Lover", "Are You With Me", and "Under The Influence". CD

Isley BrothersIsley Brothers Greatest Hits Vol 1 ... CD
T Neck/CBS, Late 70s. Used ... $1.99
An excellent collection of work by The Isley Brothers – featuring some of our favorite smooth funky tracks from the 70s by the group! The set's a nice one because it includes a lot of good tracks that are on albums that aren't that great all the way through, so you get a good album of all high-quality tracks, with cuts like "Between The Sheets", "That Lady", "Groove With You", "For The Love Of You", "Footsteps In The Dark", "It's Your Thing", "Fight The Power" and "Live It Up".

✨✧ Isley Jasper IsleyCaravan Of Love ... LP
CBS, 1985. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A huge 80s moment for the Isley Brothers empire – a set that has Ernie and Marvin Isley stepping away from the main group with Chris Jasper – to reinvent their sound for the 80s! The record still has all the slinky soul and upbeat funk of the Isley material from the late 70s – but also pushes the groove in a slightly different way – often using leaner arrangements that are focused on beats, basslines, and keyboards – which only seem to make the warm vocals of the trio sound even more seductive in the end! There's that subtle sense of majesty that the group always had in their music at their height – an influence that might well come from the presence of Jasper – and the album's noteworthy for the wonderful "Caravan Of Love", a soulful spiritual tune that's kind of to 80s soul what The Impressions "People Get Ready" was to 60s soul! The album's got a good mellow harmony sound, and other titles include "Liberation", "I Can Hardly Wait", "Insatiable Woman", and "If You Believe In Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Marlon SaundersEnter My Mind ... CD
Soul Brother (UK), 2003. New Copy ... $9.99
A stunning debut from singer Marlon Saunders – a fantastic male vocalist who's gonna be huge! Marlon's got a smooth and seductive vocal approach that really takes us back to mellow 70s Isley Brothers, later ballad tracks from the O'Jays, and even a bit of the best work from Marvin Gaye – classic-styled vocals that have a universal soul appeal, sung with a confidence and depth of expression that's rare for male singers in the current age! Marlon's known for his earlier work with the group Jazzhole, but on this set, he moves way ahead of that group – emerging as a bright new soul star to rival the work of D'Angelo or Maxwell! Titles include "Inspiration", "You Move Me", "Enter My Mind", "Keep Doin What Ya Do", "Stone Out Of Hope", and "If It's Magic". CD

VariousHow Many Roads – Black America Sings Bob Dylan ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
The oft-covered Bob Dylan songbook never sounds so soulful – classic interpretations of Dylan's canon from a great, far reaching roster of black artists – from the the ever-stirring Staple Singers, southern soul heroes Howard Tate and OV Wright, charismatic country soul from Brook Benton, great gender role perspective flipped versions by Nina Simone and Patti LaBelle, a funky tamborine take by Con Funk Shun and much more! It's another excellent entry in the Songwriter Series from Ace Records, extra excellent in that it takes an obvious hero of 60s Songwriter – and actually pulls together songs that'll take you by surprise for their depth – whether you treasure Dylan, deep 60s & 70s solo & group R&B, funk, folk soul...or all of the above! Includes "Blowin In The Wind" by OV Wright, "Girl From The North Country" by Howard Tate, "The Man In Me" by The Persuations, "Lay lady Lay" by The Isley Brothers, "Emotionally Yours" by The O'Jays, "All Along The Watchtower" by Bobby Womack, "Maggie's Farm" by Soloman Burke, "Mr. Tamborine Man" by Con Funk Shun and more. 20 tracks in all.

✨✧ Average White BandAverage White Band ... LP
Atlantic, 1974. Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
AWB's first for Atlantic – and a nice slice of funk that proves that they can mix it up with the best groups of the 70s! The record's got plenty of sweet electric keyboards over smooth funky basslines – and as the years go by, the band's white boy vocals don't sound nearly as bad as we remember them. And besides, when they play their instruments so nicely – how can you hold the singing against them? Includes the killer classic "Pick Up The Pieces", sampled more times than we can remember – plus "You Got It", "Just Wanna Love You Tonight", "Person To Person", and a nice remake of the Isley Brothers' "Work To Do". LP, Vinyl record album
(Missing the printed inner sleeve. Cover has wear and splitting.)

✨✧ VariousLand Of 1000 Dances – All Twistin Edition ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Plenty of twisting here – and a surprisingly hip little collection that takes a look at the many incarnations of the famous dance craze in the early 60s! If you think you've already got the twist sussed out, then think again – because there's way more to the style than just big hits by Hank Ballard and Chubby Checker – as many other twist-based numbers have a raunchy, R&B-soaked sort of groove – a gritty, nitty sound that makes this package way more of a soul-styled collection than you might expect, with a few bluesy moments thrown in as well! As usual with Ace, the notes do a great job of illuminating this special moment in music – and most tracks in the package are from the years 1961 and 1962 – with titles that include "Twisting On Bandstand" by The Sprouts, "Mama's Doin The Twist" by Linda Hopkins, "Ya Ya Twist" by Petula Clark, "Twistin With Linda" by The Isley Brothers, "No Twistin On Sunday" by The Zircons, "Twist Around The Clock" by Clay Cole, "Twist & Freeze" by Billy Huhn & The Casuals, "Twist A St Tropez" by Les Chats Sauvages, "The Lone Twister" by The Lone Twister, "The Twist To End All Twists" by Robby Lawrence, "Do The President Twist" by Lula Reed & Freddy King, and "The Monster Twist" by Tyrone A'Saurus & The Cro-Magnons.

✨✧ Johnnie TaylorWho's Making Love (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Stax/Craft, 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer soul from Johnnie Taylor, and really his first major LP! The record was Johnnie's second for Stax – and although the first one was good, this was the record that really had Johnnie hitting that funky bluesy sound that became his trademark into the 70s. The title cut – "Who's Making Love" – is a monster groover with a funky hook that was covered instantly by many jazz combos, and which riffs along with an Isley Brothers-ish kind of sound. The album features loads of other tasty numbers, too – all produced by Al Jackson and Don Davis – and featuring the cuts "Poor Make Believer", "I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water", "Can't Trust Your Neighbor", and "Payback Hurts".

✨✧ Beau WilliamsNo More Tears (with bonus track) ... CD
Capitol/FTG, 1986. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The last in Beau Williams' great run of albums for Capitol Records in the mid 80s – and a sweet little set that equally balances quiet storm ballads with more uptempo groovers! Williams is one of the great unsung male vocal acts of his generation – and he's got a great way here of putting over a mellow track with a level of care and sensitivity that weren't always that common in mainstream soul at the time – a approach that reminds us more of Marvin Gaye or The Isley Brothers in years before, than you might guess from the date of the album. Production is by William Reinhart, McFadden & Whitehead, Williams, and others – and titles include "I Found A Love", "All Because Of You", "There's Something About You", "Give Me Up", "Don't Be Gone To Say", "No More Tears", and "Been Too Long". CD also features a bonus instrumental version of "Give Me Up". CD

✨✧ VariousSock It To Me – Boss Reggae Rarities In The Spirit Of 1969 ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Hard-wailing classics from a key year in the Trojan Records catalog – 1969, a time when the British company was really building a bridge to bring the music of Jamaica over to the London scene – where it would have an undeniable impact for years to come! This set features a great mix of Trojan hits and underground bubblers from the time – early reggae mixed with rocksteady and other modes – in a set of titles that include "I've Tried Before" by The Impersonators, "Israel" by The Sparkers, "My Devotion" by Tony King & The Hippy Boys, "Sexy Woman" by Hopeton Lewis & The Sexy Girls, "Shangul" by Tommy McCook & The Supersonics, "Sock It To Me" by The Gaylads, "You Promised Me Love" by Bob Andy, "Long About Now" by Lloyd Charmers & The Hippy Boys, "You Belong To My Heart" by The Demons, "You Can't Stop Me" by The Emotions, and a cover of the Isley Brothers classic "It's Your Thing" by Anonymously Yours – possibly an unknown group! CD features 25 tracks in all! CD
