Love UnlimitedLove Unlimited – The Uni, MCA, & 20th Century Records Singles 1972 to 1975 ... LP
Universal, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99 34.99
A fantastic selection of work from one of the hippest girl groups of the 70s – the mighty Love Unlimited trio, three singers who all worked under the genius of Barry White in his prime! Unlike other girl trios of the time, who often used an older soul mode refitted with disco grooves – sometimes acting more like a chorus than a lead act – Love Unlimited always brought their full vocal strengths to play, and do a fantastic job here working in modes that rival some of the best male harmony groups of the early 70s – especially the sweet soul groups from New Jersey, New York, and Philly. And yes, Barry does kick up the groove a bit at times, but even then things are usually more in a midtempo mode, not a disco one – which makes for tremendous sounds throughout. This is the first-ever proper collection of the girls' singles from the early 70s – and titles include "Oh Love Well We Finally Made It", "Fragile Handle With Care", "Are You Sure", "I Should Have Known", "Is It Really True Boy Is It Me", "Walkin In The Rain With The One I Love", "Under The Influence Of Love", "It May Be Winter Outside", "I Love You So Never Gonna Let You Go", "I Belong To You", "So Nice To Hear", "People Of Tomorrow Are The Children Of Today", and "Share A Little Love In Your Hear LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Barry White & Love Unlimited OrchestraTogether Brothers – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Mercury, 1974. Used ... $14.99
A stunner of a soundtrack from the maestro Barry White – his only entry into the blacksploitation film genre of the 70s, and a complete doozy throughout! For the album, Barry's stripped down the bigger space of his own records, and his Love Unlimited productions – into some shorter tracks that really focus on that blend of funk and strings that he could do so well – making for a batch of killer instrumentals that really offer up a special Barry White take on the funky film sound of the 70s! Love Unlimited also sing on two tracks – "Somebody Is Gonna Off The Man" and "People Of Tomorrow Are The Children Of Today _- but most of the record is instrumental, played by the Orchestra – and tracks include "Killer's Lullaby", "So Nice To Hear", "Killer Don't Do It", "Can't Seem To Find Him", "Alive & Well", "Theme From Together Brothers", "Do Drop In", and "Here Comes The Man".

20th Century/Universal (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic 70s female soul – and one of the best albums ever recorded by Love Unlimited – a trio of ladies recording with Barry White during his glory years! The album's got a really incredible approach – partly in the mode of older female group soul, but also done with a hipper, more righteous style – one that pushes the sound past older standards for the music, yet which falls into none of the disco cliches of the time. The album includes a great vocal version of "Love's Theme", plus the group's totally killer "Move Me No Mountain" – and the tracks "I Love You So, Never Gonna Let You Go", "Share A Little Love In Your Heart", and "I Needed Love – You Were There".

Unlimited Gold, 1980. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wicked late work by Barry White's instrumental group – soaring strings, snapping beats, and a tight dancefloor sound that shows that these guys were undaunted by disco! The orchestrations on the set are handled by Dave Roberts – and the sound is a nice update on the classic feel of the Love Unlimited Orchestra – with slightly longer tracks than before, and beats that still snap like the old days, but which also complicate the groove in a new way. Titles include "I'm In The Moon", "Jamaican Girl", "Bayou", "I Wanna Boogie & Woogie With You", "Young America", and "Vieni Qua Bella Mi". LP, Vinyl record album

MFSBLove Is The Message ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1973. Very Good ... $9.99
A key moment for the Philly soul scene of the 70s – and the first album to feature the MFSB backing group as a solo act on their own! The ensemble were responsible for key sounds on countless soul singles of the time – yet also find a way to soar beautifully on their own – in a sweet instrumental groove that matches the strength of Barry White's Love Unlimited Orchestra, and which was definitely a key inspiration for the sound of the Salsoul Orchestra! There's definitely a bit of early disco in the mix, but the style's more uptempo east coast overall – that pre-disco groove that was going down in the clubs – with larger strings added to a core group of funky rhythm players. Gamble & Huff production make the whole thing sparkle, and arrangements are by Vince Montana, Bobby Martin, and Jack Faith – on titles that include "Love Is The Message", "Cheaper To Keep Her", "TSOP", "Zack's Fanfare", "Touch Me In The Morning", and "My One & Only Love".

Supremacy, 1974. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A record of tracks recorded before Barry White's superstar years – but released during them to cash in on his big success. The work's still pretty good, though – and it's interesting to hear Barry working in an earlier mode than his slick 70s work. Some material features Barry singing, and the rest is by the Barry White Orchestra – a precursor to Love Unlimited Orchestra. Tracks include "Come On In Love", "Under The Influence Of Love", "Fragile – Handle With Care", and "Out Of The Shadows Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Young-Holt UnlimitedYoung-Holt Unlimited Plays Super Fly (yellow vinyl) (2022 Record Store Day Drop) ... LP
Paula/Liberation Hall, 1973. New Copy ... $21.99 24.99
The last-ever album from this legendary duo – and a set that's maybe their funkiest record too! Of course, that's probably no surprise, given that they're playing the Curtis Mayfield tunes from Superfly here – great tracks that make for a really wonderful setting for the pair's highly rhythmic style – Eldee Young on bass and Isaac Redd Holt on drums – plus great Fender Rhodes lines from pianist Ken Chaney! The set also features a bit of congas from Derf Reklaw, and organ and guitar as well – and the whole thing's a long overdue follow up to the funky electric jazz style of their earlier album Oh Girl, on Atlantic. Titles include great takes on "Freddie's Dead", "Give Me Your Love", "Pusher Man", and "Superfly" – plus a few of the group's own numbers, like "Hey Pancho" and "Mystical Man" – as well as a super-dope cover of "People Make the World Go Round".

✨✧ Young-Holt UnlimitedSoulful Strut ... CD
Brunswick/Solid (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A funky soul instrumental classic – all the way through! The team of Eldee Young and Redd Holt first came to prominence with Ramsey Lewis' first Chicago trio, then branched out on their own as a jazz act – but by the time of this set, they'd picked up a hipper, funkier late 60s sort of soul groove – and were working with larger backings and a nice deal of extra bass! The pianist in the group is the super-dope Ken Chaney – a player who uses space as much as he uses notes – providing a cool counterpoint to the funky and jazzy riffing of the Young/Holt bass/drum combo. The album includes the landmark track "Soulful Strut" – with tinkling piano over funky backings mixed with sweetened strings – and other tracks include "Funky Is As Funky Does", "Baby Your Light Is Out", "Who's Making Love", "Ain't There Something Money Can't Buy?", "Be By My Side", and "Please Sunrise". A high point in the Chicago soul scene – with backings by Willie Henderson! CD

Barbara AcklinSeven Days Of Night ... CD
Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
An excellent second album by Barbara Acklin – and a perfect demonstration of her really unique Chicago soul talents! Acklin's really at the cusp of two generations here – at one level still with some of the sweetness of the earlier style of 60s girl soul, but at another full of the power and pride that was really flowing into other artists of the 70s – a balance that's a great summation of the unique way that Chicago artists could play both ends of the spectrum, and come up with something really unique in the process! The album includes the great cut "Am I The Same Girl", a loping soul groover that was all set to be a big single for Barbara – but for some reason, Brunswick held the tape back, stripped off the vocals, put on some piano, and released it as the instrumental "Soulful Strut" by Young-Holt Unlimited at the same time! Yet we still dig Barbara's version better, though – nestled here alongside other great cuts that include "Seven Days of Night", "A Raggedy Ride", "Go With Love", "Mr Sunshine", "Until You Return", and "Where Would I Go".

This is the kind of Italian disco we can get our ears around! Bebu Silvetti is on keyboards, and at the helm of the orchestra – working here like an Italian Barry White, on a groove that's very similar to the best work of the Love Unlimited Orchestra. The tracks have a harder focus on the drums and beats than you'd expect – which punches things up nicely, and is a perfect complement to the breathy vocals and smooth Euro grooving over the top of the mix. Great stuff – a real treasure, and with a lot more soul than you'd expect! Titles include "Primitive Man", "Spring Rain", "Two Cups Of Coffee", "Voyage Of No Return", "Coconut Rain", and "Contigo". CD also features a bonus track – a single edit of "Spring Rain". CD

Enrico Simonetti with GoblinGamma (180 gram white vinyl pressing) (2022 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1975. New Copy ... $34.99
One of the sweetest, funkiest Italian soundtracks we've heard from the 70s – originally written for a sci-fi TV show by Enrico Simonetti, and filled with some really great work on keyboards! Despite the spacey setting of the show, a lot of the tunes here are nicely straightforward – jazzy numbers that make nice use of lively rhythms and sweet electric piano lines – played with a nice sense of spaciousness, and augmented by some warmer strings as well. There's a full feel that's almost like American soul backings of the time – a great approach that reminds us of Love Unlimited Orchestra at points, but with more keyboards, and a sharper groove overall. Titles include "Drug's Theme", "Gamma", "Paoletta", "Invidia", "Mascia", "Black Jack", "Amico Piano", and "Chi Mi Cherchera". LP, Vinyl record album

Hysear Don WalkerComplete Expressions Vol 2 (with bonus track) ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A mindblowing album of electric piano tracks! Don Walker was a funky pianist from Chicago who worked briefly with the Young-Holt Unlimited group – and who cut a rare few albums of his own for the Brunswick label. This second solo album features some excellent Fender Rhodes work by Don – set to a very mellow set of grooves with conga, electric bass, and percussion in the rhythm group. In a way, the record feels similar to the work of the Cabildos group in Italy – but with less of the band's heavy funk moments. Titles include "Sun Ray", "DM", "Inner Face Rebirth", "Black Marble", and a nice mellow version of "Children Of The Night". Great all the way through – and a real treasure if you dig mellow electric grooves! Plus, the CD also features a bonus track – "Love You're Mine Today". CD

Compost (Germany), 2000. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most interesting albums we've ever heard on the always-interesting Compost label! Les Gammas take the groove way past some of the other Compost outings, into a sophisticated mix of jazz, soul, and soundscapes that recalls some of our favorite moments of the mid 90s London scene that included Chris Bowden, Jessica Lauren, and others. The record's got many moods – from groovy vocal tracks, to mellow instrumental ones, to complicated bits that work beautifully as links between the varying styles – and the whole record is tied together wonderfully by the group's rich imagination. They're joined by MPS alum Karl Berger on a few tracks, including a few in which he conducts a small section of the Munich Symphony Orchestra! Titles include "Love Unlimited", "La Vie Des Anges", "Document A", "See The Sun", and "Afternoon At Rossi's". CD

WEA (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest collections of mellow grooves we've ever heard – way more soulful and way less cheesy than you'd expect from the title and the cover! Although there's certainly an "easy" vibe going on here, most of the work is pulled from the hipper end of the spectrum of Atlantic Records at the end of the 60s and start of the 70s – and represents some great laidback moments from artists who are better known for more forceful or funkier work – intercut with a few key tracks from the hippest side of the mainstream instrumental spectrum. The vibe here is really sublime – as spare organ lines trip nicely alongside chilled out soul vocals – then run into spare takes on funky grooves, all done in a style that's really in love with sound and space! Titles include "Venga" by Chris Hinze Combination, "Yesteryear" by Arif Mardin, "Shadow Of Your Smile" by Jack McDuff, "Nature" by Les Crane, "Sometimes I Cry" by Les McCann, "Heather" by Billy Cobham, "I'm Still Here" by Young-Holt Unlimited, "Lady Euphoria" by Harold Alexander, "Nostalgia" by Passport, "Daydream" by Franck Pourcel, "How Can I Tell Him" by Dionne Warwick, "The Bream Are Still Biting In Ferriday" by Eric Quincy Tate, "Destination Paradise" by Yusef Lateef, and "Ode To Billie Joe" by Booker T & The MGs.

✨✧ VariousGilles Peterson – Magic Peterson Sunshine ... LP
MPS (Germany), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The magic sunshine here is all from the legendary catalog of MPS Records – unusually groovy jazz tracks from the 60s and 70s, all hand-picked by the equally legendary DJ Gilles Peterson! Peterson first turned many ears onto MPS back a few decades ago – with his excellent Talkin Jazz series – and this set follows strongly in that legacy, but also really shows both the deeper knowledge of the label's catalog we've acquired over the years, and the further development of Gilles' incredible ear for finding an unusual tune! The music here isn't just funky jazz, it's a huge range of sounds at once – some modal and spiritual elements, some global jazz experiments, a few vocal tracks, and even some very cool space-age styles – served up in a package that seems to make each new track burst forward with fresh feeling in the company of the others – that rare quality that can make a compilation like this so great. Titles include "Lillemor" by Francy Boland, "Out Of The Sorcellery" by Eddie Louiss, "Big P" by Modern Jazz Group Freiburg, "Stone Ground Seven" by Singers Unlimited, "Harp Revolution" by Johnny Teupen, "Service" by Orchester Roland Kovac, "Love Train" by Third Wave, "Dew" by Don Ellis, "Our Chant" by Gunter Hampel, "Denn Liebe Ist Stark Wie Der Tod" by Wolfgang Lauth, "Why & How" by Mark Murphy, and "Cancion Del Fuego Fatuo" by Pedro Iturralde with Paco DeLucia.

Titles include "Lejos De Mi" by Utopia, "Celia" by David Buckland, "Each Moment We Survive" by Naz Jazz, "Rainy Day Blues" by Adventure Unlimited, "Vacation From My Mind" by Jeanette Baker, "If I Had Loved You" by Sunshine Earth Band, "The Storm" by Care Package, and "Not So Long Ago" by Kerry.

An incredible collection of funky breaks – and better than any other volume in this all-great series! This 5th take on the Right On sound goes way deep – deep enough to cross genres in search of a funky groove, hitting bases across a wide range of Warner/Atlantic jazz, funk, soul, and rock albums to come up with some killer cuts that are incredibly fresh! Most tracks are linked by a love of heavy drums and monster basslines – even though they come from a disparate selection of albums and singles – and the set does an especially nice job of bringing together tracks from records that only have one good track on them – thereby saving you the trouble of paying for the full LP! Wonderful throughout, with tracks that include "15 Degrees" by Sam Samudio, "Pick Up The Pieces" by Willis Jackson, "The Creeper" by Young Holt Unlimited, "Feelin Alright" by Wade Marcus, "Hi Jack" by Herbie Mann, "Spanish Moon" by Little Feat, "Freaks For The Festival" by Rahsaan Roland Kirk, "Space A La Mode" by Herb Geller, "Hang Loose" by Don Randi, "Mr Man" by Air, "It Ain't Easy" by Sweetwater, "Leroy The Magician" by Gary Burton, and "Jungle Eyes" by Gene Page.

✨✧ Gene PageHot City/Lovelock ... CD
Atlantic/BGO (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of 70s soul classics from arranger Gene Page – back to back on a single CD! First up is Hot City – an excellent album of Barry White-styled instrumentals – put together by Barry's right hand man Gene Page, and produced by Barry himself! The record's one of the best that Gene Page ever cut – apart from his seminal blacksploitation soundtracks – and it's very much in the mode of White's Love Unlimited Orchestra albums from the same time, although perhaps with less of a string section – and more of an emphasis on funky drums at the bottom. Players are an all-star cast of LA studio groovers that includes David T Walker and Ray Parker on guitar, Ernie Watts and Wilton Felder on saxes, and Clarence McDonald on keyboards – and tracks are mostly originals by Page and White. Titles include "Jungle Eyes", "She's My Main Squeeze", "I Am Living In A World Of Gloom", "Satin Soul", and "To The Bone". Lovelock features Gene Page at the height of his 70s powers – using all the talents he forged as a background artist for other soul talents, and all the majesty he added to his soundtrack work – all focused nicely into a sweet set of warmly soulful grooves! The style's a bit clubby, but also has some wider depth too – maybe an undercurrent of fusion that comes from players like Lee Ritenour and David T Walker on guitar, Joe Sample and Sonny Burke on keyboards, and Oscar Brasher on trumpet – who find a way to work wonderfully alongside the albums vocals from singers Merry Clayton, Edna Wright, and Jim Gilstrap – all with a style that's not unlike some of the best Quincy Jones material of the time! As with Quincy, there's a sense of care and confidence that really holds the album together – on titles that include "Higher My Love", "Organ Grinder", "Into My Thing", "Wild Cherry", "Fantasy Woman", "Straw In the Wind", and "Together Whatever".

The tracks here are a hip mix of styles – not just familiar funk and soul sources, but some funky tracks from other surprising records too – presented together in a way that makes for a nice sense of variety, even while the cuts are all still staying in the groove! Titles include "Who Is She & What Is She To You" by Madelaine, "Golden Ring" by American Gypsy, "Just One Time" by Juicy Lucy, "Condor" by Geoff Love, "Steal Away" by Photoglo, "The One You Love" by Joey Newman, "Metropolis" by Walter Hawkins, "Happiness Is Just Around The Bend" by Main Ingredient, "Seacoast" by Archie Whitewater, and "Strange Games & Things" by Love Unlimited Orchestra. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Singers UnlimitedEventide ... LP
MPS, 1977. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Sweetly dreamy vocal group numbers from the great Singers Unlimited – working here with orchestral backings by Robert Farnon, arranged by Gene Puerling of the group. The album has a wonderfully mellow feel, as you'd expect by the title of the set – and tracks drift along in a heavenly harmony mode that's not nearly as hokey as some of the group's other work. Titles include "Eventide", "Marlies", "Yours Truly Rosa", "I Loved You", and a great reading of Satie's "Gymnopedies". LP, Vinyl record album
(PAUSA pressing.)
