Le StimTribute To Muhammad Ali (We Crown The King) (short, long) ... 12-inch
Melodies International (UK), 1980. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $16.99
A fantastic tribute to Muhammad Ali – one that's maybe a bit more disco than the Champ would have used in the ring, but which has all his same sense of bravado! The rhythm is great enough on its own – pumping things up with fast-riffing guitar, rolling bass, keyboard waves, and horn blasts – all of which get plenty of space for solo activity on the long version, which runs for over 9 minutes! The lyrics are great, too – a mighty tribute to the man himself. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Shahid WheelerJust One Dance Before You Go (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Melodies International (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
A fast-stepping groover with a mighty warm sound – the kind of cut that moves quickly enough for the dancefloor, but also has the richness of a mellower song – thanks to just the right sort of arrangements! Shahid Wheeler has this heartbreaking falsetto that's an unusual mix for the groove – but which also helps to further the sense of personality in the track – and the instrumental mix on the flipside lets you hear all the great interplay between the musicians in the group! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Jack JacobsI Believe It's Alright (vocal, extended) (with bonus zine) ... 7-inch
Melodies International (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A rare bit of blue-eyed soul from the Philly scene of the 70s – tight and funky, with this romping bassline that really drives the whole thing along – as Jack Jacobs croons out a meaningful lead that's got a strong Free Soul vibe! The tune's got this warmly funky quality that's great – with riffing guitar and rising piano lines along with the bass – and Jacobs draws on the earnestness of his earlier group soul work to really make the tune sparkle! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited edition – with bonus 16 page Melozine magazine, with pages of information on Jack – and an article on Zeriiya Zekkariyas, aka Linda Womack!)

✨✧ Bobby Wright (Abu Talib)Blood Of An American/Everyone Should Have His Day (with zine) ... 7-inch
Melodies International, Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
Two beautiful tunes from Bobby Wright, both recorded in the mid 70s with a subtle righteous power that's taken many years for the rest of the world to fully appreciate! "Blood Of An American" is a slow-moving track that mostly features the lead vocals over slow-drifting guitar – presenting a message that's as poetic as it is political – almost in Terry Callier territory, but even more intimate. "Everyone Should Have Its Day" follows in a very similar style – uplifting, but blue-tinged too – and this limited reissue single comes with a 16 page zine that features lots of information on Wright and his later years as Abu Talib. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Comes with a 16 page Melodies International zine!)
