Michael JacksonBad (special edition) ... CD
Epic, 1987. Used ... $3.99
The third great album in the trilogy that includes Off The Wall and Thriller – and a set that still has Michael Jackson running strong at the height of his solo powers! Quincy Jones is still at the helm, and Michael more than proves that he can still come up with a pop tune without going too far over the top – catchy, compelling numbers that played well all over the world of pop – but which still hang onto just a little part of his soul roots too! That balance is a key factor to the success of this set – a record that helped re-ignite interest in Jackson's music, and introduce him to a whole new generation – while still keeping most of the older fans plenty pleased too. Titles include "Just Good Friends", "Smooth Criminal", "Bad", "Another Part Of Me", "Man In The Mirror", and "Speed Demon". CD

Michael JacksonFarewell My Summer Love 1984 ... LP
Motown, Early 70s/1984. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A very strange little album – one that features material recorded by Michael Jackson for Motown in the early 70s, remixed with new instrumental backings to cash in on his fame in the mid 80s! Given that the work is early, the vocals are great – very much in the best Jackson 5 mode of the time – but the odd thing is the way that the new backings give the tunes all a bit more of a modern touch – by lining up keyboards and a bit of electric percussion next to the warmer older Motown arrangements. The approach oddly isn't bad, and there's a few nicely compelling tunes here – tracks that we certainly love a lot more than the place Michael went a few years after 1984. Titles include "Melodie", "You've Really Got A Hold On Me", "Don't Let It Get You Down", "Girl You're So Together", "Farewell My Summer Love", "Call On Me", and "To Make My Father Proud".

Michael JacksonInvincible ... LP
Epic, 2001. Near Mint- 2LP ... $39.99
Well, it turned out that the man himself wasn't invincible – but his music has had surprising durability over the years – to a point where even later material like this sounds pretty darn great over the passing of time! The rhythms and production are more contemporary than some of Jackson's classics, but that also maybe gives the whole thing a crackle that keeps it interesting too – partly because so many of these songs were a bit under-discovered when the set was released. The song titles themselves give some idea of where Jackson's headspace was at during the creation of the album – and tracks include "Invincible", "Break Of Dawn", "Butterflies", "Threatened", "Heaven Can Wait", "2000 Watts", "Cry", "The Lost Children", "Unbreakable", "Heartbreaker", "Whatever Happens", "Privacy", and "Don't Walk Away".

Michael JacksonMichael ... CD
Sony, 2010. Used ... $3.99
An album that's bound to be the stuff of debates for years to come – the last material recorded in the studio by Michael Jackson, formed into an album after his death! If anything, the set's going to be a great reminder that, amidst any controversy over his personal actions, MJ's still a hell of a soul singer – one who can, despite any outside odds, manage to lay down a track that's got a lot more lasting permanence than most of his contemporaries – and that includes a large roster from the past few decades. Some of the numbers here really stand out – and we're not sure if we should credit Michael or the producers, but there's a new maturity that almost shows Jackson moving away from pop territory – some gentler tunes that really show a lot of warmth, and which to us are the real standouts in the set. The set features duets with Akon, 50 Cent, and Lenny Kravitz – and titles include "I Like The Way You Love Me", "Hollywood Tonight", "Hold My Hand", "Keep Your Head Up", "Behind The Mask", "Much Too Soon", and "Another Day".

Michael JacksonThis Is It (2CDs and book) ... CD
Sony, 1980s/1990s/2000s. Used 2CD/Book ... $5.99
The soundtrack to This Is It – the celebratory release of the King Of Pop's rehearsal footage from the days before his untimely death – which also serves as sort of a best of Michael's years at Epic/Sony! It does a fine job of touching on the each of the diverse styles Michael handled in his Epic years, the pioneering guitar accented pop soul magic to the more tender numbers, but, the boon for This Is It is the title track. It's a previously unreleased number with backing harmonies by the Jackson's, a fairly gentle and memorable tune, plus some disc 2 demos. Titles include "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'", "Jam", "They Don't Care About Us", "Human Nature", "Smooth Criminal", "The Way You Make Me Feel", "Beat It", "Black Or White", "Earth Song", "Billie Jean", "Man In The Mirror" and "This Is It" (main and orchestra version). Disc 2 includes demos for "She's Out Of My Life", "Wanna Be Startin Somethin" and a "poem" version of "Planet Earth". CD

Michael JacksonThriller ... LP
Epic, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 20.98
Arguably the last true moment of genius in Michael Jackson's career – a record that sold a bazillion copies around the world – and for plenty good reason! Michael's still working here with Quincy Jones – in territory that steps nicely from the Off The Wall groove, into territory that's somewhat more poppy, but still quite soulful overall. And yes, the success of the album meant that cuts like "Billie Jean", "Thriller", and "Beat It" got plenty of play – thanks to both heavy radio and video rotation – but a few decades later, there's still a tremendous amount of depth here – on great cuts like "Human Nature", "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin", and "PYT" – which all hold up nicely!

Michael Jackson strikes out on his own, and does a pretty darn nice job! The overall sound is prime Motown pop soul – with some very very tight arrangements by Gene Page, The Corporation, and James Carmichael – but there's also a bit more depth here too, an attempt to give Michael even more feeling than in the group with his brother – quite a surprise for such a young solo act! Tracks have a pretty good groove to them – apart from the ballad title cut, "Ben" – and other titles include "What Goes Around Comes Around", "Everybody's Somebody's Fool", "My Girl", "In Our Small Way", "You Can Cry On My Shoulder", and a version of "People Make The World Go Round".

Jermaine JacksonDynamite (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/FTG, 1984. Used ... $9.99
Maybe not dynamite, but an album that definitely has an explosive feel right from the start – thanks to some 80s grooves that really help re-ignite the solo career of Jermaine Jackson! Jermaine's soaring vocals are right at home in these beat-heavy arrangements – sparkling with a sense of soul and a great ear for a catchy chorus, yet somehow never sounding too commercial overall – really a great surprise, given what you might expect from the album! That trademark Jackson ear for a tune is right on the money – and the set features a few duet cuts – including "Tell Me I'm Not Dreaming" with Michael Jackson, "Take Good Care Of My Heart" with Whitney Houston, "When The Rain Begins To Fall" with Pia Zadora, and "Escape From The Planet Of The Ant Men" with Randy and Tito Jackson. Solo cuts include "Dynamite", "Sweetest Sweetest", "Oh Mother", "Come To Me", and "Some Things Are Private". CD features 5 bonus tracks that include "Sweetest Sweetest (US rmx)", "Come To Me (12" rmx)", "Do What You Do (12" rmx)", "Dynamite (12" rmx)", and "When The Rain Begins To Fall (12" voc with breakdown)".

Jackson 5Diana Ross Presents The Jackson 5 ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
The fantastic first record from the Jackson 5 – and very much the stuff of legend all the way through! The tracks feature a number of tunes sung previously by other artists – but the quintet are already at a level that really transforms the material – not just through their unified sense of soulful harmonies, but especially from the breakout leads – which have a fresh, vibrant style that's really unlike any soul group that ever came before – especially when the young Michael steps forth, and shows us he's one hell of a charmer! Production is from Bobby Taylor and The Corporation – and the former definitely brings in some of the deeper, headier tones you'd hear in his music – one more aspect that really keeps the record from being just a kiddie soul novelty – and which instead makes it a truly lasting Motown gem! Titles include the always-wonderful "I Want You Back", one of those tunes that we've heard a million times, but still love to death – plus the tracks "Nobody", "Chained", "Born To Love You", "Stand", "My Cherie Amour", and "Standing In The Shadows of Love". Hell, even their version of "Zip A Dee Doo Dah" is pretty darn great! CD

The unusual mix of this classic album – produced originally for the Quad market, and different than the standard versions of these tunes! A testament as to how many hits the Jacksons produced in a short amount of time – this Greatest Hits was compiled only three years after the group's first record was released. It contains all the goodies you'd ever want by them, from arguably their best years. This excellent single LP contains cuts like "I Want You Back", "ABC", "The Love You Save", "Mama's Pearl", "Goin Back To Indiana", "Maybe Tomorrow", and "I Found That Girl".

A great set from Rebbie Jackson – a batch of 80s groovers that's way different than work from siblings Michael or Janet – and done with a percolating sort of vibe that's quite different from some of the core projects of the rest of the Jacksons universe! Wayne Henderson handled most of the production for the set, and brings in a nice sense of class that pushes the work far from too-commercial soul – that strong balance that always makes his name on a record one key reason to check it out! There's still a bit of Jackson influence on the vocals – as Rebbie gets help from Michael, Tito, and Randy Jackson – alongside additional guest vocals from Gary Glenn, Patryce Banks, Maxie Anderson, and The Weather Girls. Titles include "Centipede", "Play Me", "Open Up To My Love", "Hey Boy", "Come Alive It's Saturday Night", "Ready for Love", and "A Fork In The Road". LP, Vinyl record album

Five StairstepsFirst Family Of Soul – Best Of The Five Stairsteps ... CD
Buddah, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
Killer work by this fab Chicago soul group – a bunch of young kids, ala The Jackson Five, with sweet soul sound that actually predates the work of Jermaine and Michael and Tito, and which paved the way for countless 70s groups to come! The Five Stairsteps were first discovered by Curtis Mayfield – who wrote and produced a number of tracks on the set – but they had a strength of their own (thanks in part to a young Keni Burke, who was in the group), and continued to grow over the years, changing their sound to fit their expanding ages, and the changing material they needed to cope with the growth in soul in the early 70s. The set's filled with classics – including the super-huge hit "Ooh Child", plus "The Girl I Love", "Behind Curtains", "Come Back", "World Of Fantasy", "You Waited Too Long", "We Must Be in Love", "Oooh, Baby Baby", "Don't Waste Your Time", "Something's Missing", and the break-heavy "Don't Change Your Love".

A heavy groove and a heady title that points the way towards Michael Jackson's soon-to-be legendary solo career – all served up in a batch of tracks that resonate nicely with the Off The Wall groove! The sound here really isn't disco or club, but it's a nicely upbeat groove that shows The Jacksons at the top of their game – tightly stepping and often highly rhythmic – and striking a great balance between strong lead vocals and some of the sweeter harmonies that got them going in the past. Titles include the sublime groovers "Blame It On The Boogie" and "Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground)", plus great sleepers like "All Night Dancin", "Bless His Soul", "Things I Do For You" and "That's What You Get For Being Polite".

There's a fair bit of Off The Wall-era Michael that informs this set – the kind of upbeat, grooving tracks that made that record so great – mixed with some newer takes on older Jacksons material, often revamped a bit with a slightly modern soul groove! There's a nice sort of liveness to the record – not as too-polished as you might imagine – and titles include "Can You Feel It", "Off The Wall", "Heartbreak Hotel", "She's Out Of My life", "ABC", "I Want You Back", "I'll Be There", "Rock With You", "Working Day & Night", "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough", and "Shake Your Body Down To The Ground".

This set is still an all-Jacksons affair – produced and written by the whole group, and put together with some of those uptempo groovers that both Michael and Jermaine would showcase heavily in their own solo work. The sound's a nice extension of the late 70s Jacksons vibe, peppered with some of Michael's new strengths – and titles include "Can You Feel It", "Lovely One", "Your Ways", "Everybody", "This Place Hotel", "Give It Up", and "Wondering Who".

Epic (UK), 1984. Used ... $1.99
Michael Jackson's last album with his famous family – a set of electric 80s soul that's a bit different than Jackson's well-known solo work! In a way, the later Jacksons albums almost feel like a place where Michael can try out some ideas that don't fit as tightly into the overall sound of his own records – and there's definitely more diversity here than before – a shift between gentle ballads, beat-heavy tunes, and even a few rockish/poppish moments. Of course, we should probably be crediting the other Jacksons for their help in the sound here too – as they're certainly credited on the cover – but there's also less of the "many parts as one" sound than before, so it's hard to tell how they're working together. Titles include "The Hurt", "Wait", "Torture", "One More Chance", "Body", "We Can Change The World", and "State Of Shock", the big single, which features a guest appearance by Mick Jagger. CD

✨✧ Seu Jorge & AlmazSeu Jorge & Almaz ... CD
Now Again, 2010. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Incredible music from Seu Jorge – and that's saying a lot, given how much we've loved all of his previous records! This time around, Jorge really knocks it out of the park – by stepping away from some of his tighter styles, and going for a looser, more organic approach that's totally great – forged strongly with the cool combo Almaz, which features members of Nacao Zumbi, and bassist Antonio Pinto – the guy behind the great music in City Of God! The result is a record that's completely fresh, new territory for Jorge – but a set that also still holds onto all the best charms of his previous records too – and given that he's always seemed poised for superstardom and global crossover, it's even more incredible that he's made such a rootsy record like this! The record's filled with cool covers – all given the Almaz twist – tunes by Kraftwerk, Roy Ayers, Michael Jackson, Jorge Ben, Tim Maia, and others – completely reworked, and tuned up with spare instrumentation that's mostly guitar, bass, and drums. Titles include "Everybody Loves The Sunshine", "The Model", "Cala Boca Menino", "Girl You Move Me", "Juizo Final", "Cirandar", "Tempo De Amor", and "Rock With You". CD

Invictus/Demon (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99

The record is produced by Holland-Dozier-Holland, with arrangements by a number of different talents, like McKinley Jackson, Tony Camillo, and Michael Smith – and the overall sound is much more sophisticated than on some of Freda's earlier work. The vocals are especially sharp – quite mature, and almost in a mode that points towards later work by singers like Jean Carn or Marlena Shaw during the late 70s. Includes the nice midtempo groover "We've Gotta Find A Way Back To Love", worth the price of the album alone – plus "Mood For Love", "Reaching Out", "Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right", "Mother Misery's Favorite Child", and "Right Back Where I Started From".

Ross has a strong crossover feel on the set – one that works well with Gibb's songwriting, which is often aided by other Bee Gees members too – but she also makes the record more than her own, with a confident approach to the lyrics that holds onto her own sense of personality, and keeps things from being too chartbound overall. Titles include "Eaten Alive", "Oh Teacher", "Chain Reaction", "Experience", "More & More", "I'm Watching You", "Don't Give Up On Each Other", and "Crime Of Passion". CD

RCA, 1982. Used ... $9.99
Diana Ross really finds a way to remake her groove here – a sweet new sound that fits her revamped look in the Andy Warhol image on the cover! Although Ross could sparkle strongly during the disco years, the best cuts here are some of the more midtempo moments – nicely spaced out in ways that allow the singer to modulate her approach, and never push things too far, or get overly dramatic. There's definitely a few of those later modes here – both on ballads and more upbeat numbers – but the core of the record lingers nicely in the silky electric style promised in the title – especially on the great cut "Muscles", which was written for the record by Michael Jackson. Other titles include "So Close", "Still In Love", "Who", "Love Lies", "In Your Arms", and "I Am Me". CD

SpoonbreadHow Can You Mend A Broken Heart/I'm The One ... 7-inch
Stang, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Wonderful stuff from an obscure younger singer! Spoonbread was a bit like Jimmie Briscoe or Foster Sylvers – in that he was a kid singing soul with an adult-styled approach. The style really works well on "How Can You Mend" – done here as a gentle sweet-soul version, with a spoken intro that's really cool. The flip's nice too – kind of a Michael Jackson-type number, one that rocks on a groove nicely. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Includes jukebox strips.)

Foster SylversFoster Sylvers Featuring Pat & Angie Sylvers ... CD
Pride/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... About December 18, 2019
A totally charming record from the wonderful Foster Sylvers – a set recorded back in the days when he was just a kiddie soul phenomenon in the Michael Jackson mode – with some great support from his sisters Pat and Angie! The set's got some of the same blend of sweet soul and sharper grooves as the best early Pride Records material by The Sylvers – thanks to beautiful arrangements from HB Barnum and Jerry Peters – both cats who know how to keep things interesting, so that even the mellowest vocal finds a way of coming out nice! Foster takes the lead on most tracks, but gets lots of harmony support from the girls – and although there's no hip hop sample here, as on his first solo record, the whole thing's got a very similar vibe – at a level that makes us wish he'd recorded a lot more as a kid. Titles include a great funky version of "Montego Bay" – plus "Hang On Sloopy", "Stubborn Kind Of Fellow", "123", "I Fall In Love Every Day", "Caress Me Pretty Music", "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye", and "When I'm Near You".

Tenor TriageTenor Triage ... CD
Ropeadope, 2019. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
A trio of tenorists from the Brooklyn scene – Michael Eaton, Sean Sonderegger, and James Brandon – working here with just the bass of Brad Jones and drums of G Calvin Weston for support! The mix of three horns, bass, and drums is totally great – as the players leap along between rhythm, melody, and individual expressions – in a way that's sometimes got a reed-like take on brass band modes, but which more frequently recalls some of the sax quartet experiments of the 80s, but with more rhythm at the core – maybe no surprise, since the notes have a dedication to Bern Nix, and a quote on harmelodics from Ronald Shannon Jackson! Eaton also blows soprano, and Sonderegger bass clarinet – and titles include "The Beat Down", "The Fifth", "Parallax", "Mushi Mushi", "Try Tones", and "Blues For Bern". CD

Christmas Motown in all of its glory – a huge collection that features a whopping 46 tracks in all – most of them Holiday classics from the earliest years of the label, plus just a few important Christmas tunes from more recent years too!

VariousHustle – Reggae Disco – Kingston London New York (expanded 3LP edition – with download) ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... $32.99 34.98
A fantastic collection that looks at the relationship between American soul and reggae in a very unique way – not the early crossovers of soul and rocksteady in the 60s, but a big wave of disco-inspired sounds in the 70s! The set brings together some great Jamaican and British versions of American club tracks from the late 70s and early 80s, plus some soul cuts from earlier years – often done with rhythms that are slower and more bad-stepping, in a true reggae mode – but with songs and lyrics that are lifted right from bit hits by artists like Chaka Khan, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, and others! The mix of modes is wonderful – and maybe comes across even better than on some of the Afro disco records of the period – thanks to a great track selection, in the usual Soul Jazz standard. Titles include "I'm Every Woman" by Latisha, "In The Rain" by rRnest Ranglin, "Reggae Beat Goes On" by Family Choice, "Ring My Bell" by Blood Sisters, "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough" by Derrick Laro & Trinity, "Do It Nice & Easy" by Chariot Riders, "Don't Let It Go To Your Head" by Black Harmony, "Upside Down" by Carol Cool, "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" by Sharon Forrester, "Rappers Delight" by Xanadu & Sweet Lady, "Ain't No Stopping Us Now" by Risco Connection, "Am I The Same Girl" by Charmaine Burnette, and "Be Thankful For What You Got" by One Blood.

✨✧ Dizzy GillespieMusician Composer Raconteur ... CD
Pablo, 1981. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really great live date from Dizzy Gillespie – one that has a fair bit of speaking in between some of the tracks, as hinted at by the title – but a set that's most noteworthy for the fantastic sound of the group! The tracks are long, open, and stretched out in that best way that Dizzy brought to small group live recordings from the end of the 50s onward – and the sextet features some wonderful instrumentation from Milt Jackson on vibes, Ed Cherry on guitar, and James Moody on alto, tenor, and flute! The guitar and vibes make for some nice twists on familiar Gillespie numbers – and Jackson really gets a lot of room to step in and make the tunes his own. Plus, drummer George Hughes gets a bit funky at times, too – bringing an unexpected kick to the tunes in a great way, augmented by deft work from Michael Howell on bass. Tracks are mostly nice and long – and the set features versions of "Olinga", "Brother King", "Tanga", "Manteca", "SKJ", and "Con Alma". CD

Hot 8 Brass Band definitely take the title seriously here – as they serve up a quintet of covers – including one Joy Division tune, one George Benson classic, and three Michael Jackson hits – all done by the group in their horn-heavy style! Hot 8 have always been one of the hippest brass bands on the planet – but this record definitely cinches their reputation – as they blow us away with fierce funky remakes of "Love Will Tear Us Apart", "Shake Your Body Down To The Ground", "Remember The Time", "Give Me The Night", and "Baby Be Mine".

✨✧ Wadada Leo SmithNajwa ... CD
Tum (Finland), 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wadada Leo Smith is really on fire here – on a record that feels a lot more like something from the early 80s underground than some of his earlier work – from the lineup of performers, right down to the overall sound of the set! The group's very heavy on guitars – and features work from Michael Gregory Jackson, Henry Kaiser, Brandon Ross, and Lamar Smith on the instrument – often criss-crossing and weaving these beautiful sonic textures – powerful, but never too noisy, and augmented beautifully by some surprisingly thoughtful bass work by Bill Laswell – whose at his most subtle and collaborative here. The rest of the lineup features Pheeroan AkLaff on drums and Adam Rudolph on piano – and Wadada's trumpet really soars to the skies on the longer tracks, which include "Ornette Coleman's Harmelodic Sonic Hierographic Forms – A Resonance Change In The Millenium", "Ronald Shannon Jackson – The Master Of Symphonic Drumming & Multi-Sonic Rhythms Inscriptions Of A Rare Beauty", and "Ohnedaruth John Coltrane – The Master Of Kosmic Music & His Spirituality In A Love Supreme".

A beautiful blend of bossa nova and late 60s pop! The set's as groovy as groovy can be – and it features a dream selection of tunes pulled from albums on Warner Brothers, Atlantic, and Elektra from the late 60s and early 70s, plus a few oddball tunes that fit perfectly into the mix sound-wise. There's a lot of excellent numbers on here that would otherwise be buried on so-so albums – but which sparkle like jewels in the company of so many other fine tunes. Titles include "Eden Rock" by The Fifth Avenue Band, "Down In Brazil" by Michael Franks, "Goodbye Columbus" by The Association, "Carnaval" by The Hi Los, "The Night We Flew Out Of The Window" by Fantastic Something, "I Don't Know What Time It Was" by Tony Hatch, "Magical Connection" by John Sebastian, "Buzzin Fly" by Tim Buckley, "The Mothman Samba" by Hirth Martinez, "The Song Is Ended" by Milt Jackson, and "Golden Sun Goddess" by Jesse Davis. 22 tracks in all – and all very dreamy!

A really great idea for a book – served up by a thoughtful British writer with plenty of experience in the rock mainstream of the 70s, 80s, and 90s! The book looks at 40 key moments in the career of that many rock stars – not as a "datebook" or diary-styled publication, but with richly-crafted essays on each moment – tracing the rise of Bob Dylan in the Village scene, or the moment when Elvis stepped forward in Memphis, Buddy Holly's plane crashed in Iowa, John Lennon was shot, Bob Geldof created Live Aid, Michael Jackson filmed his Pepsi commercial – and on and on – the kinds of defining moments that not only shaped the careers of these artists, but also the music as well.

✨✧ Minnie RipertonLove Lives Forever ... LP
Capitol, 1980. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
The last album ever from the amazing Minnie Riperton – and one of her greatest records as well! The album was sadly issued after Minnie's untimely early passing from this planet – but it's a heavenly batch of tunes that definitely shows that her love of music lives forever – thanks not only to a strong talent for songwriting and sublime production from husband Richard Rudolph – but also some important help from a variety of all-star guests who are all brought together out of deep affection for Minnie. George Benson, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Roberta Flack, Patrice Rushen, Peabo Bryson and others all make key appearances here – working with arrangements from Johnny Pate, and vocals the Minnie recorded for the record before its completion. Titles include the perennial favorite "Here We Go" – easily one of Minnie's greatest tunes ever – plus "I'm In Love Again", "You Take My Breath Away", "Strange Affair", "Island In The Sun", and " The Song Of Life (La-La-La)".

Jr Walker & The All StarsWalk In The Night – The Motown 70s Studio Albums (A Gasssss/Rainbow Funk/Moody Jr/Peace & Understanding/Jr Walker & The All Stars/Hot Shot) (3CD set) ... CD
Motown/Soulmusic.com (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $24.99
6 Motown albums from Jr Walker & The All Stars – all long overdue for reissue! First up is A Gasssss – a gas of a record from Jr Walker & The All Stars – a set that has the magical Johnny Bristol producing – giving the group this really warm, soaring sound that's totally great! Walker still serves up plenty of strong tenor solos, but there's also some vocal currents in the mix – strong leads at times, but also some nice backups too – all of which really helps to keep things soaring! Titles a nice mix of Motown covers and original material – and titles include "I Was Made To Love Her", "Do You See My Love", "And When I Die", "Honey Come Back", "Holly Holy", "Riding High On Love", "At A Saturday Matinee", and "Groove & Move". Next up is Rainbow Funk – a record that definitely has Jr Walker & The All Stars picking up a bit of funk – but in a groove that still mixes things with that warmly soulful glow the group had right from the start! The basslines are definitely up a bit from before – although not rumbling in Norman Whitfield territory – and the sax solos get a bit more space to stretch out and bite on the longer numbers, but often with a bit of backing vocals to warm things up around the edges! Jr is great all the way through – Motown's very strong answer to King Curtis – and titles include "Right On Brothers & Sisters", "Way Back Home", "Feeling Alright", "Psychedelic Shack", "Pieces Of A Man", and "Teach Them To Pray". Moody Jr is a sweet early 70s groover from Jr Walker & The All Stars – a set that reunites the group with producer Johnny Bristol, who always has a great way of helping them set fire to their sound! Walker and company may have shot from the gate with a mix of R&B tenor and Motown soul – but the sound here is much more in the latter, more matured mode of the label – with strong deep soul lyrics on a number of cuts, which are balanced out nicely by Bristol's fuller production. There's plenty of sax solos too, of course – and titles include "Way Back Home", "Bristol's Way", "Don't Blame The Children", "Me & My Family", "Still Water Medley", and "Groove Thang". Peace & Understanding is a record that has Jr Walker and the group stepping out with some of the righteous touches promised in the title – partly in the choice of songs on the set, which are all nicely tucked into that strong mix of deep soul vocals and saxophone lines that had become the Jr Walker groove! The set features work from a number of different arrangers – all the hipper side of Motown in the early 70s, as the list includes, Willie Hutch, Gene Page, and James Carmichael – and tunes include two great originals, one by Hutch, one by Leon Ware. Tracks include "It's Alright Do What You Gotta Do", "Soul Clappin'", "Gimme that Beat (parts 1 & 2)", "It's Too Late", and "Peace & Understanding Is Hard To Find". The self-titled Jr Walker & The All Stars album is maybe the rarest in the bunch – an obscure UK-only record from 1974, and one that has the group's usual approach warmed up by some more ambitious arrangements – a bit like the direction some of the vocal acts of the 70s were taking at the time! The production on most of the set is by Clarence Paul – and there's mostly a focus on the saxophone, not any vocals at all – which makes the set feel a bit like some of the Willis Jackson or Lou Donaldson work for Atlantic around the same time – or maybe even a bit like Hank Crawford on Kudu. Titles include "Boogie Down", "All In Love Is Fair", "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life", "Break Down & Sing", and "Dancin Like They Do On Soul Train". Hot Shot is a mid-70s stormer from Jr Walker & The All Stars – a set that glides along on a fuller set of backdrops than before, with Holland-Dozier-Holland production from Brian Holland returning to Motown – but in a hip 70s style that has strings and funk dancing along in a great way beneath the strong sax solos in the lead! There's a bit of vocals on the record, but the real strength lies in the instrumentation – especially some of the weirder, fuzzier guitar lines and keyboards. Titles include "Why Can't We Be Lovers", "Hot Shot", "Probe Your Mind", "I Need You Right Now", and "You Ain't No Ordinary Woman". CD
