Millie JacksonIt Hurts So Good ... LP
Spring, 1973. Near Mint- ... $36.99
An excellent early album from Millie Jackson – recorded in a southern soul style in New York and Muscle Shoals, but a lot hipper than most of the rest of the female soul that was coming out of the south at the time. For one thing, Millie was a bad mamma singer – rapping hard and frankly about the way things is (or were). For another, Millie's not necessarily as great in the sweet department as some of her contemporaries – so she sticks to the harder material, except for a few tear jerking ballads, and adds in a lot of humor and touches of the fierce sarcasm that would soon become her calling card in the soul business. Gary Byrd penned the leadoff cut "I Cry", and the other tracks include "Two Faced World", "Hypocrisy", "Good To The Very Last Drop", "Help Yourself", and "Now That You Got It". LP, Vinyl record album

Millie JacksonLoving Arms – The Soul Country Collection ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Classic country soul from Millie Jackson – plus a brand new song as well – all served up in a set that shows yet another side of this legendary singer! Millie's known both for her weepy sad songs of the early years, and her bitchy blues of later ones – but during the 70s, she also cut a fair bit of country-tinged tunes as well – done in a similar space as other southern soul singers like Joe Tex, Solomon Burke, or Joe Simon! The styles vary nicely, though – not just the straight blend of country roots and soulful inflections you'd hear in the 60s – as some of the tracks are from later years, and bring in some modern soul to the mix – nicely expanding the sound. A few titles are duets with Isaac Hayes – and titles include "Angel In Your Arms", "Rose Colored Glasses", "Sweet Music Man", "Cheatin Is", "You Needed Me", "Pick Me Up On Your Way Down", and "Standing In Your Line" – plus the brand new track "Black Bitch Crazy".

✨✧ Millie JacksonLovingly Yours ... CD
Spring/Ace (UK), 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great point in Millie Jackson's career – recorded when she was picking up more confidence and class, but not going too far into that badass mode of later years! The sound here is still mostly southern soul, but Millie and co-producer Brad Shapiro have warmed it up a lot – bringing in some of the clubbier touches that were bubbling through the Atlanta scene of the mid 70s – smoothing things out, but in a way that still has Jackson's heartfelt soul at the heart of the record. Both The Moments and Brandy sing backing vocals on some cuts, and titles include "From Her Arms To Mine", "A Love Of Your Own", "You Can't Turn Me Off", "I'll Be Rolling", "Help Me Finish My Song", "Body Movements", "I'll Live My Love For You", and "Something Bout Cha".

✨✧ Millie JacksonMillie Jackson (1972) ... CD
Spring/Southbound (UK), 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
Ahhh . . . Great stuff! This Millie Jackson's tremendous debut album – and the work here is completely different from later records that have her more in a bitchy mode! Here, Millie's a heartbroken southern diva – right in the vein of Ann Sexton, Doris Duke, or Shirley Brown – and even though the arrangements are done north of the Mason/Dixon line (in New York by Bert DeCoteaux, and in DC by Tony Camillo), the record feels like it was lifted off the pressing plant in Muscle Shoals or Jackson! Titles include "I Ain't Giving Up", "I Miss You Baby", "Ask Me What You Want", "My Man, A Sweet Man", "I Just Can't Stand It", and "Strange Things". CD

Facts Of LifeJust The Facts – The Complete Kayvette Recordings 1975 to 1978 ... CD
Kayvette/Southbound (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 21.99
A treasure trove of southern soul – the complete Kayvette Recordings of Facts Of Life – a really unique trio with a great talent for mellow songs about life, love, and messing around! The work was recorded in Muscle Shoals by Brad Shapiro and Millie Jackson – and it's often got the best qualities of Millie's own mellow work – not the upbeat tracks, but the laidback ones in which she tells a little story with her lyrics. But given the trio nature of the group, there's often some great interplay between the male and female vocals – in a way that reminds us a lot of The Soul Children towards the end of their run at Stax – when they really matured a lot, and used the male/female group format to really expand on older styles of southern soul. Shapiro's production is tight, but never overdone – often letting the vocals cup through the most strongly, even on some cuts that augment the grooves a bit. The 2CD package features both albums by the group – Matter Of Fact and Sometimes – plus material from singles too. 23 tracks in all – including "Sometimes", "Uphill Peace Of Mind", "Caught In The Act Of Getting It On", "Bitter Woman", "Did He Make Love To You", "It's Only A Matter Of Time", "Dr Feelgood", "I'm Way Ahead Of You", "Do You Wanna Make Love", "If You Can Give You Can Get", "Love Is The Final Truth", and "What Would Your Mama Say".

VariousHave Mercy! – The Songs Of Don Covay ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
A wonderful testament to songwriting mastery of Don Covay – one of greatest singing and songwriting double threats ever – and if you didn't already know that, this excellent compilation will set you straight! No tribute to Covay the songwriter would be complete without Aretha Franklin's "Chain Of Fools" – but the set actually goes a lot deeper, with straight-up classic soul treasures, raucous R&B, stirring vocal tunes, some funk and funky rock. The reach is impressive, with the aforementioned Aretha hit, plus songs recorded by Wilson Pickett, Etta James, Joe Tex, The Staple Singers, Wanda Jackson, The Wailers, Little Richard, Gene Vincent, Dee Clark, Connie Francis and more! 26 tracks in all, completed by a great set of notes: with "Three Time Loser" by Wilson Pickett, "You're Good For Me" by Lena Horne, "Don't Drive Me Away" by Ben E King, the funky gem "Sookie Sookie" by Tina Britt, "She Said Yeah" by Joe Tex, "Watch The One Who Brings You The News" by Millie Jackson, "Long Tall Shorty" by The Graham Bond Originization, "Mon Cherie Au Revoir" by Arlene Smith and more.

✨✧ VariousMasterpieces Of Modern Soul Vol 5 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Stunning soul from the deepest depths of the American underground – upbeat groovers that mix a clubby vibe with deeper vocals – but all without hitting a disco sound at all! Some of these numbers are from the years before Studio 54, but showcase a changing style of soul – more sophisticated, a bit more funk in the mix – and this fantastic blend of instrumentation, arrangements, and production – all of which give the songs a level of perfection that definitely deserves the "masterpiece" in the title! Most of these tracks are from rare singles, but a few haven't been issued before – and together, the cuts really show the ever-evolving understanding we have of classic soul – always shaped strongly by excellent collections like this. Titles include "LOVE" by Leon Thomas, "How Can I Go On Without You" by John Edwards, "Mr So & So's Daughter" by Loleatta Holloway, "Can We Talk It Over" by Eddie Floyd, "I Believe" by New Experience with Elayne Starr, "I Guess God Wants It This Way" by Freddie Scott, "We'll Go On" by Eon, "Ride The Disco Train" by The Moderations, "That's The Story Of My Life" by Major Lance, "Your Momma Had A Baby" by Street People, "I'll Continue To Love You" by Millie Jackson, "A Star In The Ghetto" by Foxfire with Johnny Adams, "Hello Stranger" by Reggie Milner, "Gotta Be Loved (part 2)" by Herman Davis, "I'll Life My Life Loving You" by The Headliners, and a great version of "Lucky Fellow" by The Independents – a song later made more famous by Leroy Hutson!
