Maxine BrownMaxine Brown – Best Of The Wand Years ... CD
Wand/Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Maxine Brown on Wand Records is really something amazing – not just because she began her recording career at the label, but also because she never again hit the heights of these recordings! Brown was a really important singer with these sides – still partly in the class and poise of some of the jazz-tinged vocalists that came before her – but also able to open up with a deeper soul vibe that paved the way for Aretha Franklin and so many other singers to come in the second half of the 60s! The production and presentation of these tracks is wonderful, too – great songwriting, and top-shelf studio charts that only lift, and never drown the brilliance of Maxine's unique voice. Titles include "One In A Million", "It's Torture", "Let Me Give You My Lovin", "Yesterday's Kisses", "Oh No, Not My Baby", "Gotta Find A Way", "Baby Cakes", "Why Did I Choose You", "Misty Morning Eyes", "Since I Found You", "Losing My Touch", "If I Had Known", "It's Gonna Be Alright", and the completely fantastic "If You Gotta Make A Fool Of Somebody".

Maxine Brown/Chuck JacksonI Wonder What My Baby's Doing Tonight/Two Stupid Feet ... 7-inch
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
Maxine Brown and Chuck Jackson recorded some famous duets in the 60s – but here, each are featured as solo acts, on a great repressing of rare tracks! "I Wonder" is a very groovy number from Maxine – a bit more upbeat than some of her other work, and with a nice swing that's almost Northern Soul! Chuck Jackson has all the depth of his bluer work on "Two Stupid Feet" – but the tone's also got a nice groove too – a midtempo stepper for a classic soul dancefloor! 7-inch, Vinyl record

BrownsBrowns Sing Songs From The Little Brown Church Hymnal/Our Favorite Folk Songs – Two Full Albums Plus Bonus 45 ... CD
Jasmine (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Two fantastic early albums from The Browns – one of the greatest country harmony acts of all time! First up is Our Favorite Folk Songs – a set that maybe has a bit more of a stripped-down vibe than some of the other records by The Browns – stronger acoustic guitar, which is matched by the superb vocals of Jim Ed Brown and sisters Maxine and Bonnie! There's some slight traces of RCA production, but in keeping with the title, things are nicely and folksy – very up-close, which makes the vocals even more stunning – on titles that include "My Pretty Quadroon", "Pretty Wildwood Flower", "Columbus Stockade Blues", "John B Sails", "In The Pines", and "Down In The Valley". The Little Brown Church Hymnal has The Browns in the kind of spiritual territory that always served their vocals so well – often harmonizing with a slight bit of organ in the mix – never too churchy, but enough to evoke the spirit of songs – as the trio harmonize beautifully through "Just As I Am Without One Plea", "In The Garden", "An Evening Prayer", "Whispering Hope", and "When They Ring Those Golden Bells". CD also features bonus tracks – "Send Me The Pillow That You Dream On" and "You're So Much A Part Of Me". CD

Benny GolsonTime Speaks ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
A great little session – ostensibly a tribute to Clifford Brown, but way more than that! The set's actually an excellent soul jazz session – hardly the boppish affair you might guess from the title, and instead a deep-feeling set of jazz with some surprisingly spiritual touches. Golson's at his later hip best here – and is recording with a sextet that features Woody Shaw and Freddie Hubbard on trumpets – supported by a massive rhythm section that includes Kenny Barron on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Ben Riley on drums! The album's a great one if you dig Woody Shaw – and Hubbard's playing is a real treat too, with that stretched out later sound he did so well after the 70s electric years. Tracks include "No Dancin", "Time Speaks", "Blues For Duane", "Theme For Maxine", and "Jordu". CD

VariousHard To Handle – Black America Sings Otis Redding ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The music of Otis Redding – sung by some of his hippest contemporaries, and by a whole new generation inspired by his talents! The tunes here are all numbers you'd know from Redding's famous recordings for Stax and Atlantic – yet the versions are nice and fresh – some done with a gritty down-home feel that's rougher than any of Redding's records, others done with an inventive style that pushes the music forward into new modes – possibly those that Otis might have explored on his own, had he not been taken from us so soon! The package is a great testament to the Otis Redding legacy in soul music – and is filled with a whopping 25 tracks, all of them well-chosen – including "Baby Cakes" by Maxine Brown, "Just One More Day" by Clarence Carter, "Give Away None Of My Love" by Buddy Miles, "Wholesale Love" by Arthur Conley, "Hawg For You" by Tina Britt, "Hard To Handle" by Patti Drew, "Chained & Bound" by Bettye Swann, "I'm Missing You" by Mitty Collier, "Sister Pitiful" by Judy Clay, "These Arms Of Mine" by Albert Washington & The Kings, "Monkey On My BacK" by Jackie Hairston – plus the previously unreleased "Loving By The Pound (part 2)" by Otis Redding himself!

VariousReal Thing – The Songs Of Ashford, Simpson, & Armstead ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Mindblowing music from the trio of Nick Ashford, Valerie Simpson, and Jo Armstead – most of it composed and recorded in New York during the mid 60s – before Armstead left for the Chicago scene, and Ashford & Simpson went to work for Motown in Detroit! The three writers have a really beautiful way of putting over a tune – fresh lyrics that are perfect for the budding soul generation of the 60s – and which often get some production work from the members of the trio too, especially on some of the tracks here that were issued by Wand Records. The package does a perfect job of unearthing these early years – pulling together compositions by the three (and occasionally just by Ashford & Simpson) – and illuminating this period with notes that are as thorough as the selection of tracks on the set. Titles include "Dance Children Dance" by Mary Love, "The Shoe Won't Fit" by Betty Everett, "Look Away" by The Shirelles, "Are You Trying To Get Rid Of Me Baby" by The Crystals, "I Don't Need No Doctor" by Sandy Nelson, "Please Little Angel" by Doris Troy, "The Real Thing" by The Chiffons, "Smokie Joe's" by The Jewels, "Say It Again" by Marie Knight, "Looky Looky" by Candy & The Kisses, "Mr Creator" by The Apollas, "You're Absolutely Right" by Tina Britt, "I'm Satisfied" by Chuck Jackson & Maxine Brown, "Cry Like A Baby" by Aretha Franklin, "Same Old Feeling" by Jo Ann & Troy, "Only Your Love Can Save Me" by Betty LaVette, and "Love Ain't What It Used To Be" by The Diplomats.

VariousSoul Chronology Live – The Sixties (4CD set) ... CD
History Of Soul, Early 60s. New Copy 4CD ... $28.99
A pretty unique take on the rich world of 60s soul – a set that brings together tracks that are all live recordings from the time – maybe no surprise, given that soul music was one of the first genres to really explore the use of concert-based recordings – thanks to early 60s albums by James Brown, Etta James, Gene Chandler, and many others! The work here is from a variety of sources, and really holds up to some of the classic live soul records on labels like Stax, King, and Motown – and the music here spans the space of most of the decade, spread out over a full 4CDs, with 100 tracks in all, by a lineup that includes Eddie Floyd, Etta James, Curtis Mayfield, The Delfonics, Drifters, Garnett Mimms, Freddie king, Major Lance, Lee Dorsey, Kim Weston, Arthur Conley, Betty Harris, Maxine Brown, The Meters, Mitty Collier, Sam & Dave, Sly & The Family Stone, Joe Tex, and many more.

✨✧ VariousSpring NYC Soul ... CD
Spring (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic look at the Spring Records label in New York – a company that had a few big crossover hits in the 70s, but also issued a lot more rare and obscure material over the years – with a long legacy that even hit the early years of the old school scene! One of Spring's great contributions was finding a way for fast funk groups to shift into a disco mode when the earliest years of the clubs got going – but there's also a lot more going on here too – including some great deep soul ballads, warm midtempo steppers, and cuts that point the way towards the modern soul generation on the rise. The package also features six never-issued cuts, alongside some well-chosen and overlooked Spring Records gems – all put together with the usual strong notes and excellent sound we love from Ace/Kent! Titles include "If We Get Caught I Don't Know You" by Prince Philip Mitchell, "Falling In Love" by Victor Tavares, "Save The Best For Me" by The Determinations, "Do You Feel Me" by Act I, "I'm The Other Half Of You" by Maxine Weldon, "If You Could Turn Into Me" by The Fatback Band, "Magic's In The Air" by Ronnie Walker, "Hold On" by Ray Godfrey, "If You Say You Love Me" by Us, "The Storm Is Passing Over" by Jackie Verdell, "Beauty" by The Joneses, "Kill The Monster" by Flower Shoppe, "I Ride Alone" by The Internationals, "Get Right" by Richard Barbary, "Daddy's Coming Home" by Prince Harold, and "Of Your Life" by Vernon Brown.
