✨✧ Otis BrownSouthside Chicago ... LP
Numero, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Otis Brown wasn't the biggest name on the Chicago scene of the 60s – but during that decade, he cut some fantastic work for a variety of small labels – and finally gets his due on this complete collection of his rare 45s! Although home to big labels like Chess, Vee Jay, and One-Der-Ful, Chicago also had countless small imprints back in the day – great companies who let singers like Otis really open up and do their thing – working in the shadows of the bigger groups and names, but with a quality level that would have made them huge, had they been in smaller cities where they might have gotten bigger exposure. That's definitely the case here with Otis Brown – a singer who's wonderful on heartbreaking cuts with a mellow groove, but who can also soar on more upbeat numbers too – served up here in a variety of rare material recorded for the Ole, Lujana, and Expect More labels – presented here as the first full-length package to focus on his music. Titles include "The Willie Bop", "I Don't Wanna Cry", "Southside Chicago", "Whatever You Do Do It Good", "You Girl", "Find Somebody New", "Mama Don't Allow Now Loving IN Here", "What Would You Do", "Who's Gonna Take Me Home", "I'm Ready For Love", and "Sound Of The Wind".

Sir Lattimore BrownThis Is Lattimore's World ... LP
77 Records/Sound Stage 7, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $28.99
One of the few rare full LPs on the Sound Stage Seven label – and a collection of excellent late 60s singles by Sir Lattimore Brown (not to be confused with the Latimore from Miami!) The tracks have a bluesy Tennessee soul groove to them – with some great mellow numbers, and a few harder tracks that have a nice sockin soul sound! Includes the 2 part version of "Otis Is Gone", plus "Boogaloo Sue", "Bless Your Heart", "I've Got Everything (My Baby Needs)", "So Says My Heart", and "Don't Trust No One". Sublime southern soul – from the hands of John Richbourg! LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, from 1978 – with insert! Cover has some very light wear, but this is a great copy.)

✨✧ VariousHard To Handle – Black America Sings Otis Redding ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The music of Otis Redding – sung by some of his hippest contemporaries, and by a whole new generation inspired by his talents! The tunes here are all numbers you'd know from Redding's famous recordings for Stax and Atlantic – yet the versions are nice and fresh – some done with a gritty down-home feel that's rougher than any of Redding's records, others done with an inventive style that pushes the music forward into new modes – possibly those that Otis might have explored on his own, had he not been taken from us so soon! The package is a great testament to the Otis Redding legacy in soul music – and is filled with a whopping 25 tracks, all of them well-chosen – including "Baby Cakes" by Maxine Brown, "Just One More Day" by Clarence Carter, "Give Away None Of My Love" by Buddy Miles, "Wholesale Love" by Arthur Conley, "Hawg For You" by Tina Britt, "Hard To Handle" by Patti Drew, "Chained & Bound" by Bettye Swann, "I'm Missing You" by Mitty Collier, "Sister Pitiful" by Judy Clay, "These Arms Of Mine" by Albert Washington & The Kings, "Monkey On My BacK" by Jackie Hairston – plus the previously unreleased "Loving By The Pound (part 2)" by Otis Redding himself!

Carlos GarnettCosmos Nucleus ... CD
Muse/Soul Brother (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
Carlos Garnett really finds his own sound here – and steps into a wonderful blend of funky riffs, spiritual styles, and more – all in one of the most ambitious albums he cut during the 70s! There's a really expansive blend of acoustic and electric instrumentation going on here – played by a large ensemble, but one that's got a nicely focused feel – a groove that really pushes the sound of Garnett's other records with its wide instrumentation, yet which still has all the punch and power of before! Carlos brings in a few slight Caribbean touches – elements he'd experimented with a bit before – and the lineup includes Kenny Kirkland on Fender Rhodes, Roy Campbell and Abdul Malik on trumpets, Al Brown and Charles Dougherty on also sax, Zane Massey and Akum Ra Amen Ra on tenor, Andrew Washington and Cliff Anderson on trombone, Otis McCleary on guitar, Cecil McBee on bass, and Neil Clark and Gene Ballard on percussion. Cheryl P Alexander Sings soulfully at one great spot – the stunning "Mystery Of Ages", which almost feels like a Oneness Of Juju cut – and other titles include "Cosmos Nucleus", "Wise Old Men", "Kafira" and "Bed-Stuy Blues".

Marvin Peterson & The SoulmastersMarvin Peterson & The Soulmasters In Concert (Japanese pressing) ... LP
Century/P-Vine (Japan), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 About October 6, 2021
Rare early work from Hannibal Marvin Peterson – doing it live at the Burning Bush in Denton, TX in November of 1968, around the time Peterson was still a student at North Texas State University – an incredible formative live document of one of the great soul jazz players, in a more soul & early funk inspired groove than the more exploratory style to come! The set's credited to Marvin Peterson & The Soulmasters – aptly billed, we might add – and it's a mix of organ funk, a more slow cooking number or two, and a couple nods to James Brown style funk soul! Marvin, not yet billed as Hannibal, is on trumpet and he sings on his own "Five Foot Seven" and also contributes some vocals to the JB cover "I Can't Stand It". Tim Peterson is on sax and flute, penned the set opening "Groove For Otis" and co-wrote "Our Groove" with Peterson. The group also covers the Gershwin classic "Summertime" and other players include Mike Campell on alto sax, Clevend Gay on trombone, Eugene Carrier on organ and tamborine, Richard Thompson and Eugene Murray on bass and Emry Thomas on drums.

Matthew WhitakerConnections ... CD
Resilience, 2021. New Copy ... On August 20, 2021 (delayed)
A beautiful record from an up-and-coming pianist who's bound to be making huge waves in jazz for years to come – stepping out here with a very personal statement that's crafted with the help of a shifting array of musical associates! Bassist Derrick Hodge produced the record, and also plays on a number of tracks – but at the core, it's clearly Matthew Whitaker who's the driving force of the record – shifting between piano, organ, and keyboards depending on the mode of the soon – invoking a wide history of jazz, but also filtering things through a dynamic approach that belies his youthful, optimistic vision. Other players include Marcos Robinson on guitar, Otis Brown III and Johnathan Blake on drums, and Karim Hutton and Endea Jones on bass – and the set features guest work from John Batiste on piano, Regina Carter on violin, and Steve Oquendo on trumpet. Titles include "A New Day", "Bye Ya", "Journey Uptown", "Spain", "Stop Fighting", "Lately", "I'm Sorry", and a nice remake of the Duke Pearson tune "Jeannine". CD

VariousAll Night Long – Northern Soul Floorfillers ... CD
Numero/J&D, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $7.99
Hard soul galore – a killer batch of upbeat vintage soul tunes – all pulled together from the wide range of many projects the Numero Group has handled over the years! This is the label's way of answering back to some of those overseas collections of American soul from the 60s – showing that Numero is every bit as well-tuned to the needs of Northern Soul clubbers and collectors as imprints like Ace/Kent, Outta Sight, and some of the other British labels! The package features a whopping 20 tracks in all – sock-soul groovers that you might have missed between the overstuffed track listings of other Numero compilations – sounding really great here together in the company of each other. Titles include "Wait A Minute" by Eddie Ray, "You Are My Sunshine" by Jerry Townes, "I'm Ready For Love" by Otis Brown, "Little Girl Blue" by The Webs, "Demanding Man" by The Sensations, "You're Not Loving A Beginner" by Jessie Fisher, "Do You Know What Love Is" by Syl Johnson, "Your Love Makes Me Lonely" by The Chandlers, "Stubborn Heart" by Earnest Mosley, "Look Around" by Two Plus Two, "Just Fun" by Brown Bombers & Soul Partners, and "Do The Pearl Girl (part 2)" by Matta Baby.

Atlantic (UK), Late 40s/1950s/1960s/Early 70s. Used 8CDs ... $69.99
Here it is, the mother of them all! The set's got 8CDs worth of killer soul, funk, and Rhythm & Blues – all culled from the rich history of the Atlantic records label, and lovingly put together with great notes and everything! Although this sort of set usually tends to be a bit simplistic, this box actually features a beautiful mix of tracks, lots of which are hard to get in any format. It's a lot to go through, but it's worth the trip! We can't even begin to list the tracks here, there's 203(!) of them in all, but some of the artists include the Bar Kays, the Beginning of the End, Archie Bell & The Drells, Ruth Brown, Solomon Burke, the Capitols, Clarence Carter, the Chords, the Cookies, Don Covay, King Curtis, Tyrone Davis, the Drifters, Roberta Flack, King Floyd, Aretha Franklin, Major Harris, Donny Hathaway, the Ikettes, Willis Jackson, Nat Kendricks & The Swans, Barabra Lewis,the Mar-keys, Les McCann & Eddie Harris, Stick McGhee, Otis & Carla, the Persuaders, Percy Sledge, The Spinners, Willie Tee, Joe Tex, Chuck Willis, Betty Wright and loads more!

VariousKing R&B Box Set (4CD set) ... CD
King, Late 40s/1950s. New Copy 4CD ... $21.99 29.99
A really great collection of work from the early years of King Records – music from a time when the Cincinnati label was one of the key forces in helping shape the sound of R&B in the years before soul music – always with a quality level that set them apart from the rest! Sure, plenty of folks know Atlantic Records and Chess, but back at the time of these recordings, King might have had both of them beat – a label with a fantastic ear for the sorts of acts who were turning late swing and jump blues into something leaner and groovier – a range of artists that includes vocal groups, solo singers, and instrumental combos! There's plenty of classics here, but the package digs nicely into the deeper range of King as well – and as a special bonus, there's even a few unusual spoken passages from the legendary label owner, Syd Nathan. The set features 87 tracks in all, a very big booklet of notes, and work by artists who include Smokey Smothers, Bullmoose Jackson, The Dominoes, Johnny Watson, The Charms, Tiny Topsy, Champion Jack Dupree, Mabel Scott, The Midnighters, Wynonie Harris, Lucky Millinder, Roy Brown, Lonnie Johnson, Todd Rhodes, Little Esther, Dave Bartholomew, The Swallows, Roy Byrd, Tiny Bradshaw, Sonny Thompson, The King Pins, Otis Williams & The Charms, The Ravens, Little Willie Littlefield, Hank Ballard, and many others!

✨✧ Tiombe Lockhart feat Robert Glasper, Bilal, eCUSSIONISTAquarius Years ... LP
Mother Tongue, Early 2000s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first official release of this debut solo album from Tiombe Lockheart – originally distributed via shows when she was a member of the Platinum Pied Pipers, and still a completely winning bit of spacey soul – with a vibe that really prefaces so much energy on the west coast in more recent years! Tiombe gets help on beats from Bilal, drums from Otis Brown Jr, and piano from Robert Glasper – but it's also very clear that the music is all very much her own – this spacey melange of influences from hip hop and soul, woven together in very deep textures, and topped with her beautifully crispy vocal approach! Titles include "California Dreaming", "Tip Of My Tongue", "You Need Me", "Mr Johnnie Walker", "Working Girls Suicide", "Sexy Suzy On A Sunday 1.5", and "GP". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousEccentric Soul – Sitting In The Park (with bonus download) ... LP
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful tribute to a legendary Chicago soul historian – the late Bob Abrahamian, well-remembered as a completely devoted soul music collector, DJ, and one-man archive who spent the late years of his life trying to uncover lost corners of the Windy City soul scene of the 60s and 70s! Bob's specialty was Chicago groups, and this set is overflowing with rare harmony soul that most of us would never have heard otherwise – the kind of obscure cuts that Abrahamian played on his famous radio show on WHPK (also the alma mater of Dusty Groove, too) – and presented beautifully here by the folks at Numero, on one of the best collections they've given us in years! The notes not only present Bob's story, but also feature bits of interviews he did with obscure Chicago soul artists, alongside photos and other notes too – to support a stunning selection of harmony soul cuts that include "How Could You Love Him" by Shades Of Brown, "Hard To Know" by Oneness, "A Fool Like Me" by Enchanters, "Reach For The Truth" by Puzzle People, "The Girl In The Window" by The Mist, "Second Story Man" by Chocolate Sunday, "Let Love Come In" by Cliff Curry, "Southside Chicago" by Otis Brown & The Delights, "Moaning & Crying" by The Dontells, "So I Can Make This Change" by Krash Band, and "It Ain't Fair (part 1)" by Ahead Of Our Time.

Bear Family (Germany), 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massive batch of music – and almost as worth it for the overall package as it is for the great tunes inside! Like other volumes in this series, this set is beautifully put together – not only stuffed with an amazing array of classic soul from a key year in the 60s – but also done with a full color booklet that's over 60 pages long – filled with track-by-track notes on the tunes, and filled with great photos, images, and historical data! The whole thing's a perfect soul music time capsule – with the depth of production that we've always loved in Bear Family releases for other genres. Titles include "Oh No Not My Baby" by Maxine Brown, "The Jerk" by The Larks, "Needle In A Haystack" by The Velvelettes, "Chapel Of Love" by The Dixie Cups, "Wish Someone Would Care" by Irma Thomas, "Funny" by Joe Hinton, "20 75" by Willie Mitchell, "Steal Away" by Jimmy Hughes, "Security" by Otis Redding, and "Devil With The Blue Dress" by Shorty Long.

✨✧ VariousHome Schooled – The ABCs Of Kid Soul ... CD
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Jackson 5, move over – because the folks at Numero Records have uncovered a whole host of rare kid soul acts from the 70s – most of them a fair bit funkier than their Motown contemporaries! The tracks here all clearly follow the lead started by Michael and his brothers at the end of the 60s – but the music is way more than just a simple copycat of Jackson modes – as each of these artists have a really individual approach, and a heck of a lot of personality in their music – despite their youthful years. In true Numero fashion, most of the cuts here are from tiny little labels – issued only as singles back in the day, but produced with a great deal of enthusiasm for the music – and a confident, competent sound that's quite striking, given the age of the performers. The package comes with complete notes on the music – opening up a whole world of lesser-known kid soul acts – and titles include the amazing "Trust Your Child" by Patrizia & Jimmy, plus "I'm Not Ready For Love" by Promise, "One Is Enough For One" by Jack & the Mods, "Now That School Is Through" by Cindy & The Playmates, "Jersey Slide (part 1)" by 3 Stars, "You Are My Dream" by 3 Simmons, "Can't Let You Break My Heart" by Quantrells, "If You're Looking For Love" by Triads, "Yellow Ribbons" by Atons, "Sweet Pea" by Altyrone Deno Brown, "Time After Time" by Step By Step, "Time" by Otis The 3rd, and "Little Girl" by Michael Washington.

BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A mind-expanding look at Memphis soul – one that gets way past common cliches about the city and its music! There's a heavy dose of funk in the mix on most numbers here – a gritty, fuzzy approach to the music that seems slightly borrowed from the Detroit scene at the end of the 60s – then mixed with some rougher, rootsier southern soul styles too! But other tracks take on a more sophisticated sound too – some of the righteous elements that hit Stax in the post-1968 period, especially as Isaac Hayes and David Porter were working on their own great solo work. Yet unlike Hayes and Porter, most of the artists here are much lesser-known – singers and groups who never charted big, but who got the chance to record for Memphis labels like XL, Stax, Select-O-Hits, and Sounds Of Memphis. CD features 20 tracks in all – and titles include "Dig It" by The Optimistics, "Mississippi Mud" by Smithsonian, "Two Paces Ahead Of Love" by Willie Walker, "Pullin" by The Minits, "It's Bump Time" by Gene Bowlegs Miller, "Blackrock Yeah Yeah" by Blackrock, "Keep The Faith" by Mel & Tim, "Watch Dog (alt)" by Barbara & The Browns, "Come What May" by John Gary Williams, "Strange Things" by Art Jerry Miller, "Shake" by The Ovations, "Tip Toeing" by Alvin Cash, "The Way Of Me" by Hannon, "Take A Giant Step" by LaCleve Milon, "Papa Killed A Chicken" by Willie Toliver, and "Don't Boom Boom" by Lillian Hale.

Stax/Volt/Atlantic, 1950s. Used 9 CDs ... Out Of Stock
This is it! A pretty darn complete document of one of the greatest soul labels of all time – put together in a wonderful box with a book on the label that's almost as great as the music on the 9CDs in the set! This one established a new standard for box sets when it was issued in 1991, and it was the first time you could really get a clear picture of the great work of Stax without spending a lifetime tracking down obscure singles. A portion of this work will be familiar to you – as it includes classic tunes by the likes of Otis Redding, Eddie Floyd, The Bar-Kays, Booker T & The MGs, Rufus Thomas, Carla Thomas, William Bell, and others – but there's also a wealth of amazing soul by artists who recorded for Stax and Volt, yet never made it big on the charts, and never cut full albums for the label. Just a small amount of these folks include The Memphis Nomads, Jeanne & The Darlings, Derek Martin, Barbara & The Browns, Eddie Jefferson, The Tonettes, Macy Skipper, The Premiers, Sir Isaac & The Do-Dads, Ruby Johnson, Bobby Wilson, Eddie Purrell, Sir Mack Rice, and many others. A lifetime of listening in one box – and an essential set if you dig 60s soul! This is the nicely compact jewel case version – 9CDs in a box that's roughly 6" square. CD
