Johnny BristolHang On In There Baby ... LP
MGM, 1974. Very Good+ ... $6.99
The first solo album from Johnny Bristol – a genius soul talent who did a bunch of great work for Motown as a writer and arranger, breaking out here on his own! Like so many other behind-the-scenes talents from the late 60s, Johnny turned out to be an excellent soul artist in his own right – even though he only got to cut a rare few albums during the 70s – and this debut album already has him emerging straight away as a fully-formed talent! The vibe is a great mix of Detroit and California Motown – arranged by HB Barnum, and produced with a style that's tight, but still open and fluid too. Backings mix soulful strings with sweet harmonies – and lots of the tunes have a great 70s mellow soul groove. Titles include "Woman Woman", "I Got Your Number", "You & I", "It Don't Hurt No More", and the anthemic "Hang On In There Baby". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner, partial splits at opening, light edge & ring wear. Name in pen on cover & labels.)

Gladys Knight & The PipsEverybody Needs Love ... LP
SOUL, 1967. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A great resurgence in the career of Gladys Knight – her debut for Motown Records, and the beginning of a new wave of sophistication and soul in her sound! The style here is much more polished than the R&B-tinged feel of her earlier recordings – a warmly growing sound that really set a new level for countless other soul acts in the 70s – especially in the way that her lead vocals are given full support by The Pips. Production is by Norman Whitfield, Johnny Bristol, and Harvey Fuqua – who all give Gladys a wonderfully full set of backings – and titles include her original recording of "Heard It Through The Grapevine", plus "Everybody Needs Love", "Ain't No Sun Since You've Been Gone", "Take Me In Your Arms and Love Me", and "Do You Love Me Just A Little Honey". LP, Vinyl record album
(Canadian stereo pressing on Tamla, including Motown inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout hole, but is nice overall!)

Lloyd PriceMusic Music ... LP
LPG/P-Vine (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $42.99 48.99
A killer of an album – a real corker from Lloyd, one of those singers who kept on growing tremendously after his early big hits! The album was recorded in Muscle Shoals, but it's got a smooth modern sort of finish – all compressed and slightly funky, in a manner that's partially inspired by Philly, partially by Marvin Gaye's mid 70s hits. The whole thing's extremely great – with lots of hip modern numbers that bear no resemblance whatsoever to Lloyd's early work, and which will have you going "Hey, who's that? He's really great!" A bit like Sydney Joe Qualls, Johnny Bristol, or Prince Phillip Mitchell – and with tracks that include "N'Sele", "Uphill Peace Of Mind", "Street Love", "Mr & Mrs Untrue", "What Did You Do With My Love", and "Music Music". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousOne Track Mind – More Motown Guys ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... $14.99
Never-heard songs from the Motown empire of the 60s – all new discoveries from the label's mighty deep vaults – all of them totally great tracks that make for a superb new look at the Detroit powerhouse of soul! Many of these cuts are in a Northern Soul mode – the kind of upbeat groovers that made Motown a huge favorite on the British scene right from the start, and which make the UK Kent label a perfect spot to showcase work this great – with detailed notes on all the tracks, excellent sound quality, and an impeccable ear for choosing just the right sort of tracks to pop a groove like the bigger singles from the label. Some of the cuts here are early recordings by artists who'd later break big, others are more obscure Motown acts – and the package features 24 titles that include "Goose Wobbling Time" by Popcorn Wylie, "I'll Be Satisfied" by Frank Wilson, "Where Are You" by Ivy Jo, "One Track Mind" by Marv Johnson, "Heart To Heart" by Earl Van Dyke, "Head Over Heels In Love With You Baby" by Edwin Starr, "I'm Here Now That You Need Me" by The Fantastic Four, "Imagination Is Running Wild" by The Spinners, "The In Crowd" by Jimmy Ruffin, "Wish I Didn't Love You So" by The Monitors, "The Touch Of Venus" by Marvin Gaye, "I'd Rather Forget" by The Temptations, and "Kissing In The Shadows" by Johnny Bristol.

✨✧ Oxford AmericanOxford American No 115 – Annual Southern Music Issue Vol 23 – Up South (with bonus CD) ... Magazine
University Of Central Arkansas, 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic entry in the Oxford American Southern Music Issue tradition – one that still focuses on music from the south, but which also traces its legacy moving northwards as well – with an especially strong look at shifts in soulful music styles that were part of the Great Migration! As always with the publication, the presentation and prose is fantastic – top-shelf writers giving really sensitive treatment to the topics they take on – in articles on Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Johnny Bristol and Al Green, Lowell George, Mary Lou Williams, Carolyn Franklin, bounce music, the Checkerboard Lounge, and many others. There's an especially nice look at Quincy Jones by Terence Blanchard, and photography by Kwame Brathwaite – and this issue marks the return of the bonus CD for the publication – with 20 well-chosen cuts by artists who include Shirley Horn, Mary Lou Williams, Betty Dvis, Johnnie Frierson, Particle Kid, Sunny War, John Doe, Black Pumas, and many others. Magazine
(Covers are variable in either Tina Turner or Aretha Franklin – both great covers, but we have no control over which ones we'll be getting.)

✨✧ Prince Phillip MitchellTop Of The Line ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A classic set of smooth 70s soul from an under-recognized genius! Phillip Mitchell is a bit like his Atlantic Records contemporary Sam Dees – in that he wrote a lot of material for other singers, recorded a handful of singles, and worked mostly in the southern scene – but he also had a sophisticated, modern style that sounded a lot more like work coming out of New York, Philly, or Chicago. This lost album for Atlantic is a great example of that fact – as it was recorded at Muscle Shoals, but also features some Philly elements too – creating a great mix of modes that's wonderfully unique! There's a feel here that's just like some of the best work from Leroy Hutson, Johnny Bristol, or Leon Ware at the same time – a majestic, mature approach to soul that's simply tremendous. Titles include "In Between Lovers", "Top Of The Line", "I'm So Happy", "Let's Get Wet", "Paying The Price", and "If It Ain't Love It'll Go Away". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original promo pressing, with gold promo stamp, and promo track list sticker.)

✨✧ VariousCellarful Of Motown Vol 5 – The Rarest Detroit Grooves ... CD
Motown (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A long-overdue fifth entry in this amazing series – and like the previous volumes, a double-length set of rare material from the Motown vaults! 20 of the 43 tracks on the set are previously unreleased – and all of the material here goes way past the hits – to really show the full amazing scope of music that Motown was recording back in the day – with obscure cuts from the big names on the label, and some equally great tracks from artists who never fully got their due! The groove is upbeat on most tracks – very much in the Northern Soul spirit of the label – and titles include "Whisper You Love Me Boy" by The Lewis Sisters, "True Fine Boy" by The Funk Brothers, "A Toast To The Lady" by Frank Wilson, "I Want A Love I Can See" by The Underdogs, "Don't Be Too Long" by Anita Knorl, "All I Have Left Are Memories" by Sammy Turner, "Hold On To Me Darling" by Ann Bogan, "Determination" by Ivy Jo Hunter, "I Don't Want You Anymore" by Chris Clark, "There's No Love Left" by Eddie Holland, "Then" by The Temptations, "A Miracle Happened" by Johnny Bristol, "All I Want Is A Little Bit Of Love" by Barbara McNair, "In Your Heart" by Patrice Holloway, "Tomorrow's Child" by Terry Johnson, "It" by Little Lisa, "When Someone's Good To You" by Oma Page, "Too Much To Hope For" by Marvin Gaye & Kim Weston, "I Wish I Liked You" by Connie Haines, "The Truth Does Hurt" by Funk Brothers, "I Don't Know What You Got" by Edwin Starr, "Only You" by Brian Holland, and "I Found My Love In You" by Tommy Good.
