Jackie WilsonDo Your Thing (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Brunswick/Demon (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie WilsonLonely Teardrops (with bonus track) ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Jackie Wilson really takes off here – leading the set with his landmark title track, then moving into a range of tracks that really display his tremendous vocal talents! The setting is a formative one in early soul – not entirely free from pop, but directed by the singer into really rich territory of his own – a blend of R&B roots, more sophisticated soul styles, and some more mainstream orchestrations that helped put Jackie over with a very large audience at the time. There's never been another singer like Wilson – and this album really gets at the core of his early genius – with tracks that include "Lonely Teardrops", "The Joke Is Not On Me", "Each Time I Love You More", "Love Is All", "You Better Know It", "Hush-A-Bye", "We Have Love", and "Someone To Need Me". CD features the bonus track "You Don't Know What It Means". CD

Jackie WilsonNobody But You ... LP
Brunswick, 1976. Near Mint- ... $19.99
One of the last great albums that Jackie Wilson ever recorded – a sublime set of 70s soul that has some very different backings than before, all a perfect fit for those amazing Wilson vocals! David Van DePitte handled the arrangements – and wonderfully blends together strings and soul with a very classy feel – one that's nicely mature for the 70s, without any of the too-sappy modes that Wilson sometimes wandered into the decade before. Instead, there's a sense of soul and sensuality that matches some of the best Motown work of the period – allowing Jackie to ascend to a greatness that might well rival that of Marvin Gaye – on killer cuts that include "You're The Song", "Nobody But You", "Satisfy My Soul", "Where Is Love", "Just As Soon As The Feelings Over", and "Just Call My Name".

Brunswick/CBS, Mid 60s. Sealed ... $14.99
Classic soul from Jackie! The record's an 80s CBS collection of some of his best singles for Brunswick from the 60s – seminal Windy City soul numbers that include quite a few that were penned by Berry Gordy back in Jackie's early days. 12 numbers in all, with titles that include "Lonely Teardrops", "Reet Petite", "To Be Loved", "I'll Be Satisfied", "That Is Why (I Love You So)", "Baby Workout", "Whispers (Getting' Louder)", "I Get The Sweetest Feeling", "You Better Know It", "Talk That Talk" and "Doggin' Around".

Jackie WilsonSoul Galore (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Soul Galore from Jackie Wilson – and easily one of his hardest-hitting albums of the 60s! The set's got Jackie really stepping out with his best sort of groove – that raw power that really unlocks his vocal range, set to some of the funkiest backings he'd had on record so far – a real surprise from arranger Dick Jacobs, who also doesn't give Wilson any of the weaker cuts that could sometimes hurt other records! Instead, this set is full of the kind of wicked hard soul numbers that really set Jackie on fire – killer cuts that include "Brand New Thing (parts 1 & 2)", "Stop Lying", "Let Me Build", "3 Days 1 Hour 30 Minutes", "I've Got To Get Back", "So You Say You Wanna Dance", "Everything's Gonna Be Fine", and "Your Loss My Gain".

Jackie WilsonThis Love Is Real ... LP
Brunswick, 1970. Very Good+ ... $13.99
Wonderful work from Jackie Wilson's years on the Chicago scene – a time when the singer was able to really find a way to put his excellent vocals to great new use – stretching out here with sublime production from Carl Davis, and backings from the great Willie Henderson! In his early years, Jackie's vocals were great, but the setting wasn't always perfect – yet by the time of his classic album, he's definitely corrected that lack – by working with some sublime studio talents, and a host of great songwriters too. The tunes have this hip style that really lets Wilson loose – not entirely in Curtom mode, but maybe with some of the more mature themes that were also showing up in the work of Gene Chandler or Jerry Butler at the time. Titles include the sublime hit "This Love Is Real (I Can Feel Those Vibrations)" – plus "Think About The Good Times", "Love Changed Her Face", "Say You Will", "Love Uprising", "Let This Be A Letter (To My Baby)", and "Don't Leave Me".

Jackie Wilson with Count BasieManufacturers Of Soul ... LP
Brunswick, 1968. Sealed ... $14.99
A really wonderful collaboration between two very unlikely partners – and a great album that really stands out as some of the best work from both artists in the 60s! Count Basie's group gets hard and soulful on the record – and even a little funky on the best cuts – and Jackie Wilson is in a raw bluesy vocal style that recalls the best moments of his earlier Brunswick singles – a great edge that makes the whole Basie groove sound even more hard-hitting than ever. Benny Carter arranged, but the groove is more a hard-edged Count Basie mode mixed with Brunswick soul styles – and Jackie blows it out over the top on great versions of "Funky Broadway", "Ode To Billie Joe", "I Was Made To Love Her", "Even When You Cry", and "Respect". Also features a version of "For Your Precious Love" that was a bit of a hit for the pair! LP, Vinyl record album

Julius BrockingtonUnited Chair ... CD
Today/Octave (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
Keyboardist Julius Brockington really takes off here – in a style that's not quite funk, not quite jazz – and which has some of the unique sophisticated changes that Gene Harris was bringing to his Blue Note records in the mid 70s! Like Gene, Julius already has a strong background on the keys – and here, he's able to open up and create all sorts of new rhythms in his music – working on organ, piano, and even a bit of Arp – in a combo that features Steve Turner on alto and flute, Jim Wilson on trumpet, and Garry Langston on guitar! The vibe is great – sophisticated, but funky too – and very unusual compared to other albums of the time. All the material is original – and titles include "Gettin' Into It", "Lost Tribe", "Jaded Jackie", and "In the Back of the Churchyard". CD

Atlantic/Kent (UK), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
The beat goes on, and the groove does too – in this wonderful set of tracks that show the continued commitment of Atlantic Records to the realm of hard soul groovers! The package brings together a great blend of familiar numbers and lesser-known gems from three decades of the label's history – beginning with upbeat R&B gems from the 50s, moving through some great shifts in style that include some jukebox mambo sounds, jerking 60s soul, and even a bit of early funk – all in a sweet blend of tracks that never stops moving throughout!

BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $18.99 24.99
One of the deepest-digging entries in the Super Funk series so far – a blistering batch of underground singles that serve up some of the roughest funk of their generation! We'll be honest in saying that we'd only heard a few of the tracks here before – and our hats are off to BGP for taking this already-great series and making it go even deeper – far past familiar funk classics that usually get showcased on the label, and much more into the realm of the crate-digging underground, or the ebay-rarity stratosphere! A handful of cuts here are previously unreleased – never even issued on wax back in the day – and the rest are all pretty darn hard to find too, and all plenty darn great from a musical perspective. The package features a whopping 21 tracks in all – including a rare 1970 funky remake of "Twine Time" by Alvin Cash, plus "Home Brew" by Miles Grayson, "Just Sitting" by Smithstonian, "Can't Get Enough" by 87th Off Broadway, "Hi Off Life" by Eternal Flames, "Give Me Another Chance" by The Uniques, "Hold On" by Lorenzo Holden, "Free The Soul Man" by La May & Company, "Little Boy Blue" by The Phillips Brothers, "You'd Be Good For Me" by Jeanette Jones, "Who Done It?

VariousWestbound Funk – Masterful Funk From The Detroit Powerhouse Labels Of Eastbound & Westbound ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $22.99 26.99
The title's almost redundant – as the words "Westbound" and "Funk" mean virtually the same thing! From the late 60s through the mid 70s, Westbound was one of the key record labels in the sound of raw heavy funk – working with hit groups like Funkadelic and the Ohio Players to craft a sound that laid the blueprint for countless other groups of the time, and also featuring a wealth of obscurer artists with an even harder-hitting sound! The key styles of Westbound and related jazz label Eastbound were heavy and fuzzy ones – picking up off the heady and trippy styles of the late 60s Detroit scene, mixing things up with MC5 guitars, Norman Whitfield bass, and deep underground Tribe-styled jazz touches. This 20 track masterpiece is a brilliant summation of the important Westbound sound – and includes a few hits, some funky 45 classics, and an even bigger number of tracks we might not have heard otherwise! The notes are great, the tunes are super-funky, and the whole thing's one of the best funky collections you could ever hope to purchase. Titles include "You're Messing Up My Mind" by Albert Washington, "Back To Funk" by Robert Lowe, "You Caught Me Smilin" by The 19th Whole, "Conga Man" by King Errison, "Shake Your Head" by Spanky Wilson, "I Love You" by The Motivations, "I Don't Know What It Is But It Sure Is Funky" by Mighty Elegant, "Crazy Legs" by Donald Austin, "Stone Thing (part 1)" by Alvin Cash, "RPM" by Boots, "Funky World (part 1)" by Silky Vincent, "Get Funky Sweet A Little Bit" by Jackie Harris & The Exciters, "I'll Bet You" by Funkadelic, and "Why Not Start All Over Again" by The Counts.

✨✧ VariousChange Is Gonna Come – The Voice Of Black America 1963 to 1973 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A brilliant testament to the righteous power of soul music in the civil rights era – and key proof that even a subtle message could do a lot back in the day! The package presents the work in roughly chronological order – starting from a time when politics had to be peddled softly, and moving towards a time when things could be a bit more explicit – showing a great evolution of themes of pride and power, offered up in tunes both familiar and obscure. The collection is way more than a "hip hits of the 60s" sort of set – and acts almost as a mini-documentary of the contributions of soul music to civil rights – supported by a great set of notes and photos in the booklet. We're especially happy to see the track "Have You Ever Seen The Blues" by Yaphet Kotto – alongside 22 more titles that include "Blues For Mr Charlie" by Lou Gosset & Joe Lee Wilson, "The Ghetto" by Homer Banks, "We're A Winner" by The Impressions, "When Will We Be Paid" by The Staple Singers, "Oh Lord Why Lord" by Parliament, "Message From A Black Man" by The Spinners, "Run Charlie Run" by The Temptations, "Cryin In The Streets (parts 1 & 2)" by George Perkins & The Silver Stars, "Free At Last" by Jackie Day, "Someday We'll All Be Free" by Donny Hathaway, and "The Prayer" by Ray Scott.

This one moves way past the obvious chart hits of the label – into a more obscure realm of album sides, and work by some of the more obscure soul groups the label was recording in its last few years. The style is a mixture of loping Chicago soul, heavy funk, and sweet harmony tracks – and titles include "I Always Wanted To Be In The Band" by Step By Step, "We Need Love" by The Directions, "Here Is A Heart" by Ginji James, "Funky Sign" by Strutt, "Fly" by Exit 9, "Living In The Footsteps Of Another Girl" by Maryann Farra & Satin Soul, "Let's Love Again" by Jackie Wilson, "Sugar Sugar" by Willie Henderson, "Following You" by Dana Valery, "This Is the Lost Generation" by The Lost Generation, "Light My Fire" by Erma Franklin, "Come & Get This Ring" by Tyrone Davis, "When Temptation Comes" by The Chi-Lites, and "I'll Bake Me A Man" by Barbara Acklin. 24 cuts in all.

✨✧ Darrow FletcherPain Gets A Little Deeper – The Complete Early Years 1965 to 1971 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Righteous soul from late 60s Chicago – a killer collection of early singles from the great Darrow Fletcher – only a youngster at the time, but already working at a level that's as strong as most of his older contemporaries! Darrow's got this soaring voice that really sends us every time we hear him sing – a style that's possibly a bit like Jackie Wilson, but both deeper and lighter at the same time – very unique, especially in these early years – and perfect for helping Fletcher stand out from the pack! The grooves here are nice and deep – socking hard in the best Chi-town styles of the time, with the sort of punch you'd get on the best One-Der-Ful/Mar-V-Lus recordings – with arrangements by Mike Terry, Phil Wright, Tom Tom, and others. Tracks were originally issued on a variety of labels – Groovy, Jacklyn, Uni, Congress, and Genna – and titles include "The Pain Gets A Little Deeper", "Now Is The Time For Love (parts 1 & 2)", "What Have I Got Now", "What Is This", "Gotta Draw The Line", "My Young Misery", "Infatuation", "When Love Calls", "My Judgement Day", "Sitting There That Night", "Changing By The Minute", "What Good Am I Without You", "We Can't Go On This Way", and "That Certain Little Something".

A sweet overview of the Van McCoy songbook from the early 60s to early 70s – and a stellar compilation from Ace Records – a label that's gone above and beyond in its efforts to shine a light on the songwriters and producers behind some of most moving songs of the era! The breadth ofMcCoy's talent is pretty amazing, all the more so given his huge disco era hit "The Hustle", a world away from the soaringly emotional soul songs he penned for top shelf singers like Betty Everett, Nina Simone, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Nancy Wilson, Donny Hathaway, Erma Franklin, Jerry Butler and more – many of the best of which are compiled here! 24 tracks in all: "I Got The Sweetest Feeling" by Erma Franklin, "Getting Mighty Crowded" by Betty Everett, "Baby I'm Yours" by Barbara Lewis, "Sotp And Get A Hold Of Myself" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "So Soon" by Aretha Franklin, "Giving Up" by Donny Hathaway, "Nothing Worse Than Being Alone" by The Ad Libs, "I've Lost You" by Jackie Wilson and many more.

A stellar collection of work from the legendary Brunswick Records – put together with the special vibe of the Free Soul series! The tunes here are upbeat and soaring – not club or disco, but earlier soul numbers that sparkle with this sort of positive energy – a vibe that's very much the best side of the Brunswick Records approach of the late 60s and early 70s – as the imprint picked up Chicago soul, and gave it a whole new sort of groove! Yet not all this work is Chicago-based, despite the title – and the set's got a really nice range of Brunswick cuts that includes "We Need Love" by The Directions, "Loveland" by The Lost Generation, "Broken Home" by Ben Monroe, "It Only Happens When I Look At You" by Jackie Wilson, "When Temptation Comes" by The Chi-Lites, "Following You" by Dana Valery, "Here Is A Heart" by Ginji James, "I Always Wanted To Be In The Band" by Step By Step, and "Love The One You're With" by Herman. 24 tracks – and over 80 minutes of music!

✨✧ VariousIf I Had A Pair Of Wings – Jamaican Doo Wop Vols 1 to 3 ... CD
Death Is Not The End (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Very early work from the Jamaican scene – a set that includes cuts by artists who'd later record classic tracks in the rocksteady years, but who here are working in a much different mode! The title is plenty apt, but only gets at part of the sound – as this isn't straight doo wop as you'd know from the American scene, but instead some early group harmony – of the sort that would flourish even more strongly on famous Jamaican trio recordings of the late 60s – handled here with much more stripped-down instrumentation, and a shifting set of rhythms that mixes US influences with other more Caribbean modes. Titles include "Muriel" by Alton & Eddie, "Dearest Darling" by Jiving Juniors, "Til The End Of Time" by Chuck & Dobby, "Dearest Beverly" by Jimmy Cliff, "Heavenly Angel" by Laurel Aitken, "Do You Know" by Owen & Millie, "I'm Going Back" by The Charmers, "Diamonds & Pearls" by Dobby Dobson, "Album Of Memory" by The Mellowlarks, "Have Faith In Me" by Jiving Juniors, "Now You Want To Cry" by Prince Buster & The Charmers, "I Love My Teacher" by Chuck & Dobby, "Call Your Name Forever" by The Blues Busters, "I Love You Forever" by The Echoes Celestials, "Hear My Cry" by Wilfred Jackie Edwards, "Guilty Convict" by Rupert Edwards, "Julie" by The Moonlighters, "Worried Over You" by Keith & Enid, "My Heaven" by Alton & Eddie, "Sweet As An Angel" by Jiving Juniors, "First Time We Met" by Annette & Shenley, "Dream Girl" by Ricketts & Rowe, "Don't You Know" by The Moonlighters, "I'll Always Call Your Name" by Belltones, "Never Go Away" by Wilfred Jackie Edwards, "Change Of Mind" by Higgs & Wilson, and "I've Done You Wrong" by The Blues Busters.
