Laura NyroMore Than A New Discovery (mono violet vinyl pressing) ... LP
Verve/Real Gone, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 23.99
Laura Nyro's first album ever! Even at this early point, Nyro sounds wonderful – a fair bit more soulful than most other female pop singers of her time – with a fully-fleshed out approach to the vocals that's mature and sensitive, and almost a bit more confident at times than in later years. Arrangements are by Herb Bernstein, and almost have the same sort of sunny feel as The 5th Dimension in their famous covers of Nyro's tunes – again with more soul than we might have expected for the time. Titles include "Lazy Susan", "Stoney End", "Flim Flam Man", "Buy & Sell", "He's A Runner", "Billy's Blues", and "Wedding Bell Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition violet colored vinyl pressing! First mono issue since 1967!)

✨✧ Laura Nyro with LabelleGonna Take A Miracle (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia, 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous album from Laura Nyro – a real return to the soulful style of her roots, thanks to help from Labelle on backing vocals, and the team of Gamble & Huff on production! If Nyro only ever gave the world this record, that would more than be enough – because the whole thing's an incredibly hip blend of her own great songwriting and some of the more righteous strands of American soul music at the time. Most of the tracks are older soul numbers – some done relatively straight, others done with the more personal, contemplative style you'd expect from Nyro during these years. And decades before Amy Winehouse or Joss Stone started hitting territory like this, Nyro proved that a set of soul tracks like this could come off well, if handled with the right talent! Titles include "The Bells", "I Met Him On A Sunday", "Spanish Harlem", "You've Really Got A Hold On Me", "Desiree", "The Wind", "Nowhere To Run", and "It's Gonna Take A Miracle". CD features 4 bonus tracks too – "A Natural Woman", "Ooh Child", "Up On The Roof", and "Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing". CD

✨✧ Eli's Second ComingEli's Second Coming ... CD
Silver Blue/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little set of 70s soul – and one of the more obscure groups to ever record for the TK Records family of labels! Not to be confused with the Laura Nyro hit "Eli's Coming", this group's one that's headed up by Philly Soul maestro Bobby Eli – composer of, producer for, and guitarist on countless 70s soul hits! The group's Bobby's own, and has a sound that's very much in keeping with the best Philly disco of the period – with likely suspect players that include Ron Kersey on keyboards, Vince Montana on vibes, and Larry Washington on congas. Most tunes feature a 3-woman vocal chorus singing the lyrics – very much in the classic Philly female disco group mode – and titles include "Heavenly", "Foxfire, "Lickety Split", "Love Chant", "Why Don'cha", "Hop Scotch", and oh, a version of "Eli's Coming"!

(Part of the Miami Sound – Original Soul/Funk/Disco Collection series!)

✨✧ Wendy WaldmanLove Has Got Me/Gypsy Symphony/Wendy Waldman ... CD
Warner/BGO (UK), 1973/1974/1975. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A trio of overlooked gems from Wendy Waldman – brought together in a single set! First up is Love Has Got Me – a hell of a solo start for singer/songwriter Wendy Waldman – a great album that should have had the lady right up there on the charts with some of her best 70s contemporaries, but which sadly never got the attention it deserved! Wendy wrote most of the material here herself, and sings with the confidence of a Laura Nyro or Carole King – but maybe with some of the jazzier inflections that Maria Muldaur or Joni Mitchell were bringing into their work – yet always with an individual spirit that makes it difficult to directly compare Waldman to anyone! Titles include "Train Song", "Gringo En Mexico", "Old Time Love", "Natural Born Fool", "Horse Dream", "Can't Come In", and "Thinking Of You". On Gypsy Symphony, Wendy Waldman's working at the Muscle Shoals studio – a place that really brings out some of the warmth, soul, and jazzy inflections in her vocals – yet all without reducing her music to another Muscle Shoals cliche! Instead, Wendy seems to transform the familiar lineup of players with a voice that's strong, proud, and one of the great overlooked female singer/songwriter talents of the 70s – on titles that include "You Got To Ride", "Studio Song", "Mad Mad Me", "The Road Song", "My Love is All I Know", and "Northwoods Man". The self-titled Wendy Waldman is one of the leanest albums ever recorded by Wendy Waldman – a set with small group backing that only seems to set Wendy's vocals even more free than before! As with her other great work of the time, there's a jazzy current to some of the singing – a mode that resonates with Joni Mitchell or Maria Muldaur – and as before, the songs are strong and proud, really great material that marks Waldman as one of the better songwriters of her generation, maybe right up there with Laura Nyro in spirit and openness – and like Nyro, very much her own woman. Titles include "Racing Boat", "Explain It", "Sundown", "Constant Companion", "Spring Is Here", "Wild Bird", and "Wings". CD
