MiraclesDon't Cha Love It ... LP
Motown, 1975. Very Good ... $3.99
Released in the same year as City Of Angels, this set was also produced by Freddie Perren, and shares the same polished feel to the groove that he provided on that outing, but without the big chart hits. Overall, it's still a fine effort, with Billy Grifffin admirably filling in for the departed Smokey Robinson, though not as strong as the group's first couple LPs without Smokey. 10 tracks in all, including "Keep On Keepin On (Doin What You Do)", "Sweet Sweet Lovin", "Don't Cha Love It", "Gemini" and 'You Are Love". LP, Vinyl record album

MiraclesHi, We're The Miracles ... LP
Motown, 1960. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Incredible work from Smokey Robinson & The Miracles – a set that's not only one of the first great records on Motown, but a set that also really links the label to the vocal scene in the rest of the country too! Although the record features a few hits, the overall presentation is nicely free of the Motown mode that would later become quite standard – and many tracks have this very relaxed, unadorned approach that's a lot more like the group soul coming from small labels in New York, Philly, and Chicago! The group harmonize with even more soul and feeling than any of their Motown contemporaries – and the presence of Claudette Rogers gives the group a high tenor voice that really creates some amazing vocal interplay. The whole thing's stunning – a record that will really revise any simple thoughts you might have about Smokey and the group – and titles include "Shop Around", "Cause I Love You", "Don't Leave Me", "Your Love", "Depend On Me", and "Heart Like Mine".

MiraclesMiracles ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1978. Used ... $6.99
An overlooked groover from The Miracles – a late 70s set for Columbia Records, and one that's got a sparkling sound throughout! The album really has the group hitting some great modern soul modes for the set – arrangements by David Foster that push them forward even more, and which work equally well on the uptempo tunes as they do on the few mellower numbers too. The style is lush, but never overdone – just right for the vocal interplay of the group, with a quality that's a bit like late 70s Jacksons – but better. Titles include "Love Doctor", "I Can't Stand It", "Hot Dance", "Mean Machine", "Sad Rain", "Reach For The Sky", and "The Magic Of Your Eyes". CD

✨✧ MiraclesRenaissance ... LP
Tamla, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $2.99
An incredible album from The Miracles – truly the Renaissance that's promised in the title, and proof that they could do amazing things away from Smokey! Of course, they've got a heck of a lot of great help on this set – from some of Motown's best, like Willie Hutch, Fonce Mizell, Freddie Perren, and even Marvin Gaye, who wrote and produced the album's incredible track "I Love You Secretly", a stone treasure that's as good as any of Marvin's recordings from the time! The whole album's great, though, filled with wonderful songs that never got their due – and which will make this one stand for years as a treasure to fans of harmony soul! Titles include "I Didn't Realize The Show Was Over", "I Love You Secretly", "I Don't Need No Reason", "Don't Let It End", and "What Is A Heart Good For". LP, Vinyl record album

Smokey Robinson & The MiraclesAway We A Go Go ... LP
Tamla, 1966. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A key set in the second chapter of Smokey Robinson & The Miracles – that time when the group moved from the mellow ballads that were their first early strength, into some dancefloor stormers that easily made them one of the most favored Motown acts of the time! Smokey definitely takes the "go go" in the title seriously – and comes up with some great grooves that feature plenty of his own lead vocals, including some lesser-known gems that we especially like. Backing by the group is great, too – and the overall sound is extremely sweet harmony soul, with a perfect Motown set of arrangements from the backing group – on titles that include "Can You Love A Poor Boy", "Baby Baby", "I'm The One You Need", "Save Me", "Oh Be My Love", and "Swept For You Baby".

Legendary stuff from Smokey Robinson and his wonderful group – a killer set from the second all-male version of The Miracles – recorded with some wonderfully soaring harmonies! The group's got a nice bite on the bottom here – a groove to go with the "go go" promised in the title – at a level that made these Miracles really take off on Motown dancefloors, yet still also have the late nite appeal of the earlier group too. The album includes the big hit dance number "Going To A Go Go", the classic ballad "Tracks Of My Tears", and loads of other wonderful numbers like "Ooo Baby Baby", "Let Me Have Some", "All That's Good", and "My Girl Has Gone".

Hip stuff by Smokey – recorded at the beginning of the 70s, but with some cuts from the glory days of the 60s. The album includes classics like "Tears Of A Clown" and "The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game" – but the best tracks are the mellow, more modern ones, which show the group developing into a sophisticated harmony act with a sound to match the best groups of the 70s. Tracks include "That Girl", "I Love You Dear", "No Wonder Love's A Wonder", and "When Sundown Comes". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia/Vocalion (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two post-Motown albums from The Miracles – back to back on a single CD! On Love Crazy, The Miracles move to Columbia Records – and pick up a whole new groove in the process – a much richer sound than previous records on Motown, with a soaring style that really works great for the harmonies! Billy Griffin's vocals are really coming into their own – as is his songwriting, too – evidenced by some of the more complicated elements in the mix, and the blend of full arrangements and tight rhythms that almost have a Philly feel overall! The change is a great one for the group – and not only helps them beat some of their best late Motown moments, but also points the way towards a heck of a lot of 80s soul too. Titles include "Too Young", "The Bird Must Fly Away", "Love Crazy", "Spy For Brotherhood", "A Better Way To Life", "Women", and the Isley-like "I Can Touch The Sky". The self-titled Miracles set is an overlooked groover from The Miracles – a late 70s set for Columbia Records, and one that's got a sparkling sound throughout! The album really has the group hitting some great modern soul modes for the set – arrangements by David Foster that push them forward even more, and which work equally well on the uptempo tunes as they do on the few mellower numbers too.

ChangeEverything & More – The Complete Collection 1980 to 2019 (Glow Of Love/Miracles/Sharing Your Love/This Is Your Time/Change Of Heart/Turn On Your Radio/Love 4 Love) (7CD set) ... CD
Edsel (UK), 1980s. New Copy 7CD ... $54.99
A huge batch of work from Change – all the group's classic albums from the 80s, plus some great work from later years too – all with bonus tracks added to most of the records! First up is Glow Of Love – the classic debut from Change – and the start of an amazing run of groovers in the early 80s! The set's got a tight, jazzy feel throughout – a stripped-down approach to disco modes, with the same focus on the basslines that you'd find in work by Chic – but a style that's almost even more instrumentally focused overall, given the great range of studio players who worked on the set. Yet there's also some key vocal moments, too – work by Luther Vandross that really helps make some of the best tracks sparkle, and which went onto catapult Vandross into a rich solo career on his own. Next is Miracles – a brilliant second set from Change – working here without Luther Vandross on lead vocals, but hardly missing a beat at all! As before, the basslines are at the core of the set – a sweet stripped-down approach that brings even more focus onto the bottom of the groove for early 80s dancefloors – with loads of numbers that step along in a really groovy mode – one quite far from the cliches of disco, and inflected by loads of jazzy elements that keep things fresh over the years! Vocals are by James Robinson – previously with Lonnie Liston Smith – Diva Gray, and Jocelyn Shaw. Sharing Your Love is sweet modern soul from this great group – one of the brightest points in major label soul during the early 80s! Change, ironically, is a group that went through a number of line-up changes, even in their prime – with the tight, clubby, yet genuinely soulful production a constant. This record is made all the better for the beautifully soulful dual lead vocals of James Robinson and Deborah Cooper. The tracks have deeply layered live instrumentation – keyboards, guitar, percussion, horns and strings – blended seamlessly with early 80s production touches. This Is Your Love is an overlooked set from Change – a record that possibly wasn't as hit-worthy as some of their previous efforts – yet one that still had the group very much at the top of their game! By this point, Change had really evolved past being just a studio project, into a rock-solid soul group with a definite ear for a groove – particularly the tight, lean sort of rhythms that percolated in the post-Chic era – making a perfect fit for the slightly jazzy production of the record. Bassbits and beats drive most of the rhythms, but there's still a nice degree of warmth – and vocals are handled by Deborah Cooper, James Robinson, Rick Brennan, and Timmy Allen – who each seem to get their moment in the spotlight, furthering the well-rounded sound of the record. Next is Change Of Heart – a game-changing album from Change – a real breakthrough for the early 80s international soul combo! Change Of Heart has some great production by Jimmy Jam/Terry Lewis – and on top of that, it's perhaps the best set of songs the group had recorded to to date. Jam/Lewis wrote half the tunes and produced most of the album, which is front-loaded with some of the best of them. Turn On Your Radio is not nearly as well-known as their first few hits, but still in that all-solid approach to the groove that was the Change trademark during the early 80s! The sound is a bit more stripped down than before – tight beats and keyboards, mostly in a mellow to midtempo mode – all topped with vocals from male and female members of the group! Change still have a great way with a hook here – an approach to soul that's tight and professional, yet not nearly as cloying as some of the chart-climbing acts of their generation. And as before, the keyboards are almost as great as the vocals – with slight jazzy inflections that warm up the tunes nicely! Last up is Love 4 Love – a 2018 comeback for Change – still sounding great all these many years later, but in a slightly different way! The balance between all elements here is fantastic – as the music has all the best parts of the group's earlier music, but also updates the sound a bit – in the way that a combo like Incognito or Brand New Heavies were updating older soul music back in the 90s, by grabbing all the strongest parts of the past, and fusing them into a fresh lean groove. The songs are upbeat, positive, and full of the kind of catchy hooks that Change always did so well! Box set features 78 tracks in all – with bonus tracks added to most albums! CD

Lyons, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sweet electric funk from Fifth Avenue – a Georgia group with a very tight little groove! The group are an obscure indie combo, but they've got a polish and professional quality that matches some of the best acts on bigger labels at the time – particularly some of the best boogie artists on Capitol, whose work sounds a fair bit like these guys. The tracks are surprisingly well-formed – and slide out with a great little bounce on the bottom, and plenty of warm jazzy instrumentation on the top – tight, but never too slick. All tracks are originals, and titles include "Got To Take A Chance", "Just Be My Lady", "Baby Change Your Mind", "Miracles", "Everything's Gonna Be Alright", and "God Has". CD

Paul Bley, Franz Koglmann, Gary PeacockAnnette ... CD
Hatology (Switzerland), 1992. Used ... $16.99
Paul Bley returns to important territory from earlier years – the compositions of Annette Peacock, which often offered up some of his best musical moments during the 70s! The format here is different than the ECM years, though – a bit edgier, in that the piano of Bley and bass of Gary Peacock is mixed with trumpet and flugelhorn lines from Franz Koglmann, who not only really gives the set an expressive depth, but also ties the Bley/Peacock mode to a later strand of European improvisation. In fact, the record's almost a sonic shift in time – representing the newer era of avant recording by Hat Art, and instantly displaying its contrast with the earlier ECM aesthetic that brought Bley to many ears. Peacock's original tune structures provide a lot of familiar signposts along the way – even though the paths taken are quite different! Titles include "Both", "Mister Joy", "Touching", "Miracles", "Albert's Love Theme", "Cartoon", "Annette", and "Kid Dynamite". CD

ElginsDarling Baby ... LP
VIP, 1966. Very Good ... $19.99
The Elgins were a great little group on Motown's VIP label during the 60s – and they had a sweet falsetto soul style that reminds us a lot of the best work by The Miracles during the same time. Lead singer Saundra Edwards has a style that's similar to Smokey Robinson's high vocals – and the heavy production by the Holland/Dozier team provides a nice counterpoint to keep the lyrics from getting too sickly sweet. Features the big hit "Darling Baby", plus "Put Yourself In My Place", "No Time For Tears", "Stay In My Lonely Arms", "Good Lovin", and "It's Gonna Be Hard Times".

Jackson SistersJackson Sisters ... LP
Tiger Lily, 1976. Very Good ... $23.99
An amazing bit of soul – and one of the rarest funk records of the 70s! This masterpiece was recorded by The Jackson Sisters, a semi-gospelly soul group that has a sound that's a bit like The Voices of East Harlem, but that's a lot harder, and that has a deeper soul sound overall! At times, the group is funky – as on their incredible track "I Believe In Miracles", a rare groove classic if there ever was one, and one of the most in-demand tracks we've ever stocked. At other times, the girls have a mellower soul sound, with great raw harmonies that remind us of the Volt work by The Emotions, but with much rougher instrumental backing. This album's the only one they ever cut – and it's just about impossible to find in the original pressing (and in fact, we've never seen a copy!) Apart from the amazing cut "Miracles", this one includes loads of gems like "Rockin' On My Porch", "Shake Her Loose", "(Why Can't We Be) More Than Just Friends", and "Boy, You're Dynamite"!

Gershon KingsleyGershon Kingsley's First Moog Quartet ... LP
Audio Fidelity, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $13.99
Wonderful work from one of the maddest talents on the moog – the enigmatic Gershon Kingsley, frequent partner of Jean Jacques Perry! This album's got Kingsley working in his unique First Moog Quartet – a four-moog ensemble that makes some really incredible music! Unlike Kingsley's earlier albums with Perry, this set goes for a sound that's much more live – less cut-ups and edits, and more straight moogified playing. The result is some really wild-sounding tracks that get pretty out there, next to other shorter tunes that are groovier, with a few vocal refrains. A key record in bridging both sides of the instrument – pop and avant garde – with tunes that include "Have It Grabe It Or Go", "Images", "Rebirth", "Sounds Of Silence", "Miracles", and "In The Beginning".

Sure, it's not the classic years of the 70s, but Kool & The Gang sound surprisingly great here on this recent set – grooving in a well-done, tightly-crafted way that may not exactly be early 70s funk, but which is still right up there with some of their later, mellower work! The rhythms are quite right on most numbers – never too stiff, and never too overdone – often with just a hint of jazz at the bottom – and vocals are delivered lightly, wrapped around the beats, keys, and riffs with a slightly subtle edge. Titles include "Dave", "Steppin Into Love", "America", "What's Happening Brother", "Made For Love", "Give It Up", "Trust Me", "Miracles", "Sorry", "Bang Bang With The Gang", and "It Is What It Is". 2CD set also features a bonus disc with 5 more hits – "Celebration", "Hollywood Swinging", "Joanna", "Summer Nights", and "Ladies Night".

Groove Merchant/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $16.99
A great later album from O'Donel Levy – recorded after his initial flurry of work for the Groove Merchant label, but still plenty darn nice! The sound here is slightly smoother and a bit more electric than before – with Levy's sweet guitar work snaking out over some larger backings that almost have a funky soundtrack feel. The groove is still great, and O'Donel brings plenty of his trademark chromatic lines to the set – guitar parts that almost sound even better in this setting! Titles include "Moisturizer", "Green Machine", "Panama Red", and a track called "I Believe In Miracles", which is not the Jackson Sisters' hit, but a nice mellow groove with vocals that sounds like some of the George Duke soul cuts!

Excellent mid 70s work from Smokey, recorded right before his landmark Quiet Storm album, and in a smooth sophisticated style that showed that he was definitely on the right track after splitting from the Miracles! The sound here is totally great – a new level of sophistication for Robinson, and proof that he was one of the key folks who would take soul music to new levels in the 70s! The record includes the excellent "Virgin Man", a loping midtempo track that's not only a great stepper, but also a famous sample riff.

Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
Paul Simon wrote some really fantastic songs in the 60s – and while most of them received big exposure in his duo with Art Garfunkel, many were other recorded by other artists in versions that were pretty great too – as you'll hear in this excellent collection of rock, pop, soul, and folk versions of some of Simon's famous songs! The collection features a few tracks from more recent years, but mostly focuses on the late 60s and early 70s – and the shift between styles is really great, and indicates just how strong Simon's songs were on their own – so that their words and rhythms could easily be picked up by other artists, and handled in modes that were very different than the sound of Simon & Garfunkel! As with other packages in this excellent series from Ace Records, there's copious notes on both Paul Simon, and on the nicely varied artists who recorded these tunes – with a total of 23 tracks that include "Keep The Customer Satisfied" by Marsha Hunt, "Blessed" by The Tremeloes, "I Am A Rock" by The Hollies, "You Don't Know Where Your Interest Lies" by Dana Valery, "Leaves That Are Green" by Doris Henderson & John Renbourn, "Mother & Child Reunion" by The Intruders, "Cecilia" by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, "The Boy In The Bubble" by Patti Smith, "Richard Cory" by The Heptones, "Fifty Ways To Leave Your Lover" by Rosemary Clooney, "Bridge Over Troubled Water" by Aretha Franklin, "The Boxer" by Emmylou Harris, "The Sound Of Silence" by Peaches & Herb, "Loves Me Like A Rock" by The Persuasions, and "The Only Living Boy In New York" by The Tennors.

One of the most unusual albums on the legendary Treasure Isle label – issued here with 46 bonus tracks too! Independence Jump Up Calypso is one of the most unusual records Duke Reid ever released – a set of mento, not rocksteady or ska – not entirely calypso, but with a similar groove – and issued here in a slightly-late 1966 package to celebrate Jamaica's split from the UK! The tracks are mostly by two key artists, and have a nice raw groove that's similar to other Treasure Isle productions – plenty of currents of jazz in the horns, romping rhythms, and lyrics that are a key precursor to the way that vocals would play out later in reggae. Titles include "Jump Independently", "The Weed", "Bam Bam", "Mulfridite", and "Hooligans" by Count Lasher – and "In The Park", "Hard Times", and "Old Man's Drive" by Count Alert – plus instrumentals "Seven Guns Alive" and "Dog War Jump Up" by Lynn Taitt & The Baba Brooks Band. CD also features a huge amount of other Treasure Isle/Duke Reid rarities – ska, rocksteady, and instrumental singles – from The Sensations, Baba Brooks Band, The Miracles, The Upsetters, Tommy McCook, The Silvertones, Lynn Tait, Joey & Butch, Tony & Dennis, Eric Morris, Herman Marquis, and many others.

✨✧ Torbjorn Zetterberg & The Great QuestionTorbjorn Zetterberg & The Great Question – Live ... CD
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 2019. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An insanely wonderful album from bassist Torbjorn Zetterberg – a player we've loved for many years, but who seems to be hitting a new level of genius with this record! As with other key bassist-driven ensembles over the years – like the work of Charles Mingus, or more appropriately, the Liberation Music Orchestra of Charlie Haden – Zetterberg has this way of driving the group from the bass position with a vivid, fluid sort of energy – never overstating his own role, and getting this wonderfully dynamic performances out of the other members – so that although the group's just a sextet, it feels as if it's got a lot more parts in motion. The lineup is as tremendous as Torbjorn's leadership – Susana Santos Silva on trumpet, Mats Aleklint on trombone, Jonas Kullhammar on tenor and flute, Alberto Pinton on baritone and flute, and Jon Falt on drums – working beautifully through long Zetterberg originals. titles include "Cherry Tree Carol/Weekday Miracles", "The Oracle In Finnaker", "Tiny Slippers", and "Song From The End Of The World".

✨✧ VariousCooley High – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Motown, 1975. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great selection of older Motown numbers – with a few newer tracks from the 70s! The selection of tunes is a bit strange – given that the film was film set in Chicago in the mid 60's, whick makes you think the kids would have been listening to Chicago tunes on local labels like Okeh, Brunswick, and other labels – but overall, it's still a decent set. The original tunes are pretty great – like the instrumental "2 Pigs and a Hog", which was an old sample back in the 80's – and the tracks "Haulin", "Sweet First Love", "Cold Blooded", and "Three AM", which feature music by Freddie Perren. Other older tunes include "Stop In The Name of Love" by The Supremes, "Baby Love" by The Supremes, "Fingertips" by Stevie Wonder, "My Girl" by The Temptations, "Reach Out I'll Be There" by Four Tops, "It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday" by GC Cameron, "Beechwood 45789" by The Marvelettes, and "Ooo Baby Baby" by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles.

✨✧ Colin BlunstoneEnnismore/Journey ... CD
CBS/Voiceprint (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The second and third solo albums by Colin Blunstone – both great follow-ups to his legendary One Year set! Ennismore is filled with amazing tracks that are perfect for Blunstone's godlike voice – a surprisingly great set that shifts the focus a bit, but with a sound that's really wonderful. The production's a bit fuller than the string-quartet/piano sound of One Year – but the musicians still include most of Colin's old buddies from the Zombies, and Chris White and Rod Argent produced the album as well – coming up with some great inflections that really send home the gentle hooks of the album's tunes! Blunstone's vocals are as magnificent as always – breathily beautiful without sounding cheesy – which is a very fine distinction here, and one that keeps the album far from other adult pop of the time. Tracks include "I Don't Believe In Miracles", "How Wrong Can One Man Be", "Andorra", "Time's Running Out", and "How Could We Dare To Be Wrong". Journey is a bit less sublime than Colin's first two – with tracks that veer a bit more towards the soft rock sound of the 70s, with some compressed AOR touches in place of the floating instrumentation of earlier albums – but it still sounds mighty nice to our ears, as Colin's voice is always a treat, and the record has a irrepressible charm in its optimistic presentation of some of the material. Essentially, if you dig Colin lots, you'll still want this one – as it's got more than a few nice moments – and is more of an evolution of his solo work than a divergence from it. Titles include "Setting Yourself Up", "Smooth Operator", "Shadow Of A Doubt", "It's Magical", "You Who Are Lonely", "Beginning", and "Keep The Curtains Closed Today". CD

✨✧ Jackson SistersJackson Sisters ... CD
Tiger Lily/Mr Bongo (UK), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing bit of soul – and one of the rarest funk records of the 70s! This masterpiece was recorded by The Jackson Sisters, a semi-gospelly soul group that has a sound that's a bit like The Voices of East Harlem, but that's a lot harder, and that has a deeper soul sound overall! At times, the group is funky – as on their incredible track "I Believe In Miracles", a rare groove classic if there ever was one, and one of the most in-demand tracks we've ever stocked. At other times, the girls have a mellower soul sound, with great raw harmonies that remind us of the Volt work by The Emotions, but with much rougher instrumental backing. This album's the only one they ever cut – and it's just about impossible to find in the original pressing (and in fact, we've never seen a copy!) Apart from the amazing cut "Miracles", this one includes loads of gems like "Rockin' On My Porch", "Shake Her Loose", "(Why Can't We Be) More Than Just Friends", and "Boy, You're Dynamite"! CD

✨✧ VariousTreasure Isle Ska Rarities (3CD set) ... CD
Treasure Isle/Trojan (UK), Mid 60s. Used 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A huge collection of rare singles from the vaults of the legendary Treasure Isle label – a company who was home to some of the hippest tracks from the early days of ska – and also did a great job of getting the music to the UK scene as well! This package goes past the familiar Treasure Isle hits, as the 7" singles feature previously unreleased tracks and rare alternate versions – all packaged up in a great box set with a mighty sharp look. The whole thing is great – nice and raw, and very different than ska revival material of later years – and this 3CD set features all the material that was on the 7" box set done a few years back, plus 74 more bonus tracks! Core cuts include "You Wish Me Bad (take 6)" by The Spanishtonians, "Love Me Or Leave Me (take 1)" by Owen & Leon Silvera, "I'm All Alone (take 1)" by Frank Cosmo, "Oh Misery (take 2)" by The Duke Reid Group, "Thinking Of The Future" by Stranger Cole, "Fooling Around" by The Rio Grandes, "Renegade (take 1)" by The Zodiacs, "Smokey Ska (take 1)" by The Baba Brooks Band, "Practice What You Preach" by Owen & Leon Silvera, "My True Confession (take 1)" by The Silvertones, "Til My Dying Day" by Winston & Slim, "Road To Nowhere (orig mix)" by Lyn Taitt & The Baba Brooks Band, "What A Bailing (take 1)" by Duke Reid Group, The Army Is Searching (take 2)" by Basil Caral & Group, "Storm Warning (take 1)" by Lyn Taitt & the Boys, "Want Me Cock (take 1)" by Owen & Leon Silvera, and "How Know Your Friend (take 1)" by Derrick Morgan – with bonus material by Duke Reid, The Movers, Justin Hinds, Tommy McCook, Froggy, Lynn Tait, Eric Morris, Baba Brooks, Lloyd & Glenn, Derrick & Naomi, The Miracles, The Zodiacs, The Melodies, Sensations, and many many more.

✨✧ New MastersoundsNashville Session 2 ... CD
One Note (UK), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The New Mastersounds return to the sweet studio in Nashville that gave us the previous album – but this time around, they change things up a bit – by using a variety of different keyboards instead of their usual Hammond! The core rhythms are every bit as sharp as before – and full of fantastic work on guitar from the mighty Eddie Roberts – but the grooves have a stronger 70s funk sound than before, thanks to the use of Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer piano, and even a bit of Prophet 5! These guys never seem to dim their instrumental talents at all – and a tight instrumental set is a great reminder of all that's made them so wonderful for so many years. Tracks include "Miracles", "Pudding & Pie", "Flimsy", "Thermal Bad", "Yokacoka", and a fresh take on "Dusty Groove". (Thanks for that one, guys!) CD
