MiraclesLove Crazy/Miracles (SACD multi-channel disc) ... CD
Columbia/Vocalion (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $19.99 24.99
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. 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

✨✧ Smokey Robinson & The MiraclesPocket Full Of Miracles ... LP
Tamla, 1969. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A great one by The Miracles! Smokey and the group are clearly pushing the envelope here – stretching out for a deeper harmony sound, moving towards some of the smoother styles they'd use a bit more in the 70s. The result is a slightly-confused album, but one with some really interesting material that gives the group a chance to experiment more with their vocal phrasing. Includes the heavy soul number "Flower Girl", plus the tracks "Who's Gonna Take The Blame", "Darling Dear", "The Reel Of Time", "Wishful Thinking", "Point It Out", and "Don't Take It So Hard". Also features a great medley of "Something" and "Something You Got". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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 ... Just Sold Out!
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

Norman Weeks & RevelationsMiracles ... LP
Evergreen/High Jazz (Switzerland), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A fantastic mix of 70s soul and gospel – served up here by keyboardist Norman Weeks, who heads up a really strong group of singers on the set as well! Weeks plays Fender Rhodes, piano organ, and a range of other keyboards – and different singers take the lead on each track, including some really great female vocalists with a range that's amazing – trained in gospel, but also given a strong secular soul spin here by the way that Weeks sets up the arrangements. There's a few strong groovers on the set – and even the midtempo tracks pack a hell of a punch, with a sense of joy that resonates strongly throughout the entire set. Titles include "Living For Him", "It Took A Miracle", "I Got A Song In My Heart", "I Will Stand On It", "Being With You", and "I Wanna Sing For You". LP, Vinyl record album

Casablanca/Big Pink (South Korea), 1979. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from Kenny Nolan – the blue-eyed 70s singer whose work was always on the more soulful side of the AOR spectrum! This set's got Kenny at the top of his groove – soaring out in the best late 70s Casablanca Records mode – not entirely disco, but upbeat and grooving – while Nolan delivers the charming vocal leads that always make his delivery of the lyrics so sweet! Juergen Koppers co-produced the record with Kenny, and you can definitely hear his touches in the instrumentation – on titles that include "Maybe I'm Mindless", "Dancin To Keep From Cryin", "Ride A Wild Horse", "Motor Workout", "Wine Women & Champagne", and "Us & Love".

India Navigation/Valley Of Search, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
One of the only albums ever issued by New York reedman Alan Braufman – a player who works here in a setting that really captures the best energy of the loft jazz scene in the 70s – at a time when Braufman was part of a musicians collective on Canal Street that also included David S Ware! Ware isn't on this set, but that's OK with us, because the rest of the group is so great – Braufman on alto, flute, and pipe horn – with Cooper Moore on piano and dulcimer, the latter of which is used in very cool ways – plus Cecil McBee on bass, David Lee on drums, and Ralph Williams on percussion. Cooper Moore delivers a striking spoken passage on "Chant" – and other titles include "Miracles", "Ark Of Salvation", "Rainbow Warriors", and "Love Is For Real". LP, Vinyl record album

Dynamics180,000 Miles & Counting ... CD
Big Single (France), 2011. Used ... $12.99
Reggae dub soul from The Dynamics – and they do more than that, too – a richly diverse, easy going and soulfully resonant set from the France-based, globally-reared group! There's a real love for classic soul at the roots of the group's sound – as well as the hazy rhythms and breezy groove of dub reggae and some grittier funky soul. The combine it all really well, along with strains of Afro Soul. The group first made a name for themselves with some truly brilliant cover tunes, and they're still master adapters, but 180,000 Miles & Counting also a lot of great original material in which we get to hear the group on a more personal level – and it's the album is all the better for that! Includes "For The Love Of Money", "I Know She Cares", "Can You Handle This Dub", "International Soul", "Do The Dance", "Bring Me Up", "Show Me", "My Stride", "Squeezed Lookums", "Walk On The Wild Side", "Shibuya Crossing", "Tonight", "Miracles" and more. 17 tracks on the CD.

Raw and riveting gospel-folk-soul from Johnnie Frierson – only ever issued as a self-released cassette before this vital re-discovery by Light In The Attic! Johnnie is one of the vital, though relatively unknown voices in the Stax/Volt universe, working with a his sister Wendy Rene and in the group The Drapels in the late 60s, before going to Viet Nam and being pretty quite in the proceeding years. The songs Have You Been Good To Yourself and raw and direct, but anything but simple – just voice and guitar, but carrying such a depth of feeling. Truly wonderful stuff! Includes "Have You Been Good To Yourself", "Heavenly Father, You've Been Good", "Miracles", "Out Here On Your Word", "You Were Sent To This World", "Woke Up This Morning" and "Trust In The Lord".

✨✧ Billy GriffinSystematic ... CD
Columbia/PTG (Netherlands), 1985. New Copy ... $11.99 19.99
The third album in Billy Griffin's great run after leaving The Miracles – and a set that features some especially nice help from mellow groove maestro Leon Ware! Ware brings a depth to the record that takes it way past Billy's outdated look on the cover – that trademark ear for a killer midtempo groove that few other songwriters or producers could match – and which proves to be just the right setting for Billy's beautiful vocals! Instrumentation is heavy on beats and keyboards, with a definite electro approach – but there's a warmth here that goes way past the setting, both vocally and in the way the tunes come across. Titles include a remake of "If I Ever Lose This Heaven" – plus "Can't Keep Running Away", "This Ain't Puppy Love", "Electrified", "Systematic", "Everybody Needs Somebody", and "Waiting To Touch". CD

Tiger Lily/Mr Bongo (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
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

Groove Merchant/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99 About July 7, 2021
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!

Ennio MorriconeTwo Mules For Sister Sara (2CD expanded edition) ... CD
Kapp/La La Land, 1970. New Copy 2CD ... $29.99
A really fantastic score from Ennio Morricone – maybe better this time around than the images on the screen for some of his other westerns of the period – more proof that the maestro was always willing to rise above, and give his best no matter what the setting! The music begins with some already-fantastic elements – mule-like noises that mark the theme and title of the film – carried out with that fantastic sense of western flourish that Morricone could do so well – a use of space in the music that evokes the landscape, even without images to view – as subtle orchestrations mix with occasional guitar, and a fair bit of the sorts of unfamiliar sounds that the maestro was always able to create! Titles include "The Braying Mule", "The Battle", "The Cool Mule", "La Cueva", "Night On The Desert", and "Time For Miracles". This massive 2CD edition features the original 11 track album from 1970 – plus a full bonus CD of songs from the film score, most of which appear here for the first time ever – 21 more tracks, and a bonus hour's worth of music!

Smokey RobinsonQuiet Storm ... CD
Tamla, 1975. Used ... $7.99
Incredible work – a record that should be in every household! Smokey breaks free of the group sound of the Miracles albums – hitting a whole new mode, and inventing the "Quiet Storm" radio format along the way! The title cut – "Quiet Storm" – is a majestic long-building track that's as important to mellow soul as Larry Mizell's work was to jazz funk at the same time, and it's got a similar layering effect that has sounds building and spinning, with a bit of sound effects, great keyboards, and cool moogy touches that recall some of Bobbi Humphrey's best work for Blue Note, but filtered through a mellow ballad style. The whole album's great, and other tracks include "Baby That's Backatcha", "The Agony & The Ecstasy", "Coincidentally", and "Wedding Song". Proof that Motown was still great in the 70s! CD

SupremesBit Of Liverpool/TCB (with the Temptations) ... CD
Motown (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... $32.99
2 odder Supremes albums on one CD! A Bit Of Liverpool is a strange set in which The Supremes strangely sing hits of the British Invasion – like "How Do You Do It", "You Can't Do That", "House Of The Rising Sun", and "I Want To Hold Your Hand" – nearly all of which are done in fairly rock-heavy versions that sound nothing like the group's bigger soul hits of the time. It's hard to imagine that such an album would appeal to either the group's regular fans or those who liked true British rock, but perhaps that's also why the record features a version of The Contours "Do You Love Me" and The Miracles' "You've Really Got A Hold Of Me" who are also listed in the notes as being part of the "male group" phenomenon that is really what the Brit invasion was about. TCB is a soundtrack to a film that starred the group, with some guest appearances by The Temptations – in Motown-show versions of tracks that often feature the singers lapsing into medleys of other tunes, or doing some popular hits of the day. Titles include "Respect", "Somewhere", "Stop In The Name Of Love", "TCB", "For Once In My Life", "Hello Young Lovers", "I Hear A Symphony", and "The Impossible Dream". CD

A treasure trove of rare Motown from some of legendary label's most classic acts – Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Four Tops, Brenda Holloway, Martha & The Vandellas, The Supremes, The Originals, Bobby Taylor, The Marvelettes, Marvin Gaye & The Jackson 5 – prime vintage late 60s to early 70s recordings that have barely if ever seen light of day!

VariousSound Of The R&B Hits (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Motown/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
A really classic collection – expanded here with lots of bonus tracks too – all to focus on the best sounds of the early years of Motown! The set's not R&B at all – but it is an important 1964 UK release of vintage Motown material – put on the overseas market after the Beatles, Stones, and other English groups were dipping into the world of motor city soul for their own recordings – which meant that it was more than time enough for some of the original tracks to their a new level of exposure! Motown maybe shaped the sound of rock in the UK even more than it did over here – and this collection is also a great portrait of the key core of artists who made the label so great at the start, before the company started branching out to bring other artists into the roster. Titles include "Money" by Barrett Strong, "Shop Around" and "I Don't Want To Take A Chance" by Mary Wells, "Way Over There" and "The One Who Really Loves You" by The Marvelettes, "Everybody's Gotta Pay Some Dues" and "I'll Try Something New" by The Miracles, "Mocking Bird" by Martha & The Vandellas, and "Let Me Go The Right Way" by The Supremes". The original 14 track album has been expanded to 28 cuts here – with bonus material that includes "Hitch Hike" and "Pride & Joy" by Marvin Gaye, "Please Mr Postman" and "I Want A Guy" by The Marvelettes, "Shake Sherry" by The Contours, "Oh I Apologize" by Barrett Strong, "You've Really Got A Hold On Me" and "I've Been Good To You" by The Miracles, "I Found Myself A Brand New Baby" by Mike & The Modifiers, "You Beat Me To The Punch" by Mary Wells, and "I Found A Girl" by The Valadiers.

✨✧ Paul Bley, Franz Koglmann, Gary PeacockAnnette ... CD
Hatology (Switzerland), 1992. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Timmion (Finland), 2018. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Ernie Hawks looks right out of the 70s on the cover – with his long hair, fringe jacket, and fiercely-held flute – which he mixes here with some great grooves from the Soul Investigators, in a vibe that's maybe even better than classic! The album's all instrumental, and has this fantastic sound that's way different than the usual contemporary funk set – nicely trippy at times, with echo and other effects applied to the instrumentation – and a strong ear for the overall sound, not just the power of each member of the group! Hawks is often out front, soloing with a funky flute sound – but he also handles vibes, pianoman, and trombone – in a very cool lineup that also has Martti Vesala on wah-wah trumpet, and Jimi Tenor on saxophone. All tunes are original, and they're really fantastic – each the kind that if you found on a rare soundtrack or lost jazz album, you'd be willing to pay plenty to own. Titles include "Still Trippin", "Bag Full Of Miracles", "Cold Turkey Time", "Scorpio Walk", "Windy City Blues", "Journey To The Bottom", and "Street Of Tears". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ SuperbsBest Of The Superbs – Lush Harmonies From Los Angeles' Finest Soul Set ... CD
Dore/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Superb soul from The Superbs – a great group from the LA scene of the 60s – and one who never cracked the charts as much as their contemporaries! The group mixes a female voice in with the male harmonies – in a style that doesn't always have the female singer in the lead, but recalls the early Miracles or The Sensations – especially the former, as many of the tunes here really sparkle in a laidback ballad mode that's mighty nice. Other tracks are upbeat groovers with almost a Detroit sort of vibe – great production the group got during this crucial run on Dore Records – one of the better soul music imprints on the west coast in the 60s! The set brings together 24 tracks in all – with rich notes on this overlooked group – and titles include "The Story Book Of Love", "The Wind Is Blowing", "My Heart Isn't In It", "Hold Back The Dawn", "Sad Sad Day", "Where Or When", "Wind In My Sails", "Your Eyes", "He Broke A Young Girl's Heart", "On A Day When It's Raining", and "My Heart Isn't In It".

✨✧ Deniece WilliamsNiecy ... CD
Columbia/Reel Music, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Totally great work from Deniece Williams – still mostly free from the tinny pop of later years, and done in a solidly soulful style at Sigma Sound, with arrangements and production from the mighty Thom Bell! The groove is almost an update of 70s Philly, with traces of the maturing mellow side of Williams – all wrapped up with a good degree of confidence on the vocals, but enough tenderness to remind us of the greatness of Williams' roots. Deniece at her early 80s best! Titles include "I Believe In Miracles", "Waiting By The Hotline", "It's Gonna Take A Miracle", "Love Notes", "How Does It Feel", "Now Is The Time For Love", "Waiting" and "A Part Of Love". CD

✨✧ MonitorsSay You – The Motown Anthology 1963 to 1968 (Greetings! We're The Monitors plus previously unissued material and B-Sides) ... CD
Motown/Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A real lost gem from Motown – and a whole lot more! Greetings! We're The Monitors is the only full album ever cut by The Monitors – a 3-man, 1-woman vocal group who were in a popular Motown mixed harmonies mode. The quartet had a wonderfully strong vocal presence – blasting away at most tracks with a strength that groups like The Miracles or Gladys Knight & The Pips could never match – and like those groups, they bridge that key period between late doo wop-oriented harmonies, and tighter 60s group soul. The LP brings together singles the Monitors cut for Motown during the previous few years, but it also works extremely well as a unified album – and it's a refreshing change from some of the oft-heard Motown material. Titles include "Greetings (This Is Uncle Sam)", "Number One In Your Heart", "Bring Back The Love", "Step By Step (Hand In Hand)", and "Baby Make Your Own Sweet Music". This incredible anthologogy from Kent starts off with that album and includes 12 unissued tracks – a whole album's worth – plus 2 B-Sides. Unissued tracks include "Too Busy Thinking About My Baby" , "The Letter", "Poor Side Of Town", "Anything", "Guilty" and more. 26 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ Benny SingsMusic ... CD
Stones Throw, 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Benny Sings has a scruffy sort of look on the cover here – but his music is wonderfully smooth and soulful – every bit the sound that we've loved on all of his previous records, and which makes Benny maybe one of the under-discovered talents of the global scene of the past decade or so! Benny's got a way of putting together songs that are simple and tuneful, often with relatively light instrumentation – but which have a way of getting his charms across right from the start, like he's some sort of top-shelf Cali talent from the 70s, just cooking up cool little tunes in his home studio on Fender Rhodes. Titles include "Here It Comes", "Nobody's Fault", "Break Away", "Sunny Afternoon", "Run Right Back", "Miracles", "Music", and "Lost Again". CD

✨✧ SupremesSupremes A Go Go ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the biggest charting LPs by The Supremes – and one of the best, too! The girls are opening it up a bit here – getting in on some of The Miracles Go Go action of the period, and laying down tunes that have a bit more of a northern groove to them – relying a bit more on a more steady overall groove than the hugely catchy choruses of some of their biggest hits. A groovy record – with a tight theme! Titles include "These Boots Are Made For Walking", "I Can't Help Myself", "Get Ready", "Money", "Hang On Sloopy", "Come & Get These Memories", "Shake Me, Wake Me", and "Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart".

(Part of the Motown Did It First Series!)

✨✧ Torbjorn Zetterberg & The Great QuestionTorbjorn Zetterberg & The Great Question – Live ... CD
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 2019. New Copy Gatefold ... 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".
