✨✧ VariousR&B Singles Collection Vol 3 – Outta Sight Red Hot Rhythm & Blues ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Smoking work from the early years of soul music – that time when the style was just coming into its own, through equal parts jazz, R&B, blues, and gospel! The cuts here are those which might be called R&B in another setting, but definitely work together to inform the roots of soul – all in the style that's carried on by the later 60s reissues on the Outta Sight label. Lots of the cuts have the feel of some of the best Jazzman/Jukebox Jam reissues in recent years – a very different take on R&B than previous generations of collectors have explored. Titles include "I Get The Feeling" by Eli Lee, "Let's Start A Romance" by Little Joe Hinton, "Hard Times" by Jacki Ross, "Cherringale" by Ed Townsend, "Twist 62" by Jerry McCain, "My Book" by Bruce Cloud, "The Girl That Radiates The Charm" by June Alexander, and "Dynamite" by Big Jay Bush & The Houserockers.

Freddy Briggs (aka Coldwater Stone)Lost Soul Of Freddie Briggs – Defrost Me (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
GSF/Outta Sight (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $9.99
Wow, we knew almost nothing about this record! Freddy Briggs is the main force behind Coldwater Stone – as he wrote and produced all the tracks, and sings lead vocals throughout the record. His style's sort of a mix of funk and soul, and he works in the heavier style that was used by some of the other bands on the legendary GSF imprint – but also has a nice southern soul style in the best moments! Not as grittily funky as the Skullsnaps, but a fitting labelmate – and with a smoldering, geniune soulfulness that's positively killer – a record that's as rare as any other on the label, if not more so! Titles include "End Of the World", "Jefferson Park", "Outside Love Affair", "You're the One", "Biggest Mistake In The World", and "Without The One You Love". This excellent CD version from Outta Site UK packages the remastered Coldwater Stone's Defrost Me album with 2 bonus tracks: "Sound Off" and "I'm So Sorry", with credit and top billing to Freddy Briggs – with notes that provide some insight in the man that we simply didn't have before and we appreciate it!

Michael Valvano's ContoursI'm A Winner – The Albuquerque Sessions 1978 to 1979 ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy ... $6.99
A previously-unreleased chapter in the career of the legendary Contours – heard here on some rare late 70s sessions that are quite different than their famous work for Motown! All the core soul of the Contours is still hanging on nicely – especially in the vocals, which have more of an early 70s indie soul feel than you'd guess from the date – almost somewhere in the territory of New Jersey soul at its best, especially on the harmonies. And the production is nicely stripped-down – possibly a part of the mastering – not rough, but laidback – in ways that keep things from ever getting too uptight, or too polished to wipe out the group's charm. Titles include "Get In The Groove", "I'm A Winner", "Makes Me Wanna Come Back", "Try A Little Understanding", "Love Me All The Way", "Take It In Your Stride", and "Let Your Love Through". CD also features 5 bonus tracks – two versions of "For The First Time In My Life", plus "Get In The Groove (inst)", "Let Your Love Through (inst)", and "Love Has Gone (alt)". CD

Willie & West/New SoundsWillie & West Meet The New Sounds (Willie & West At Their Best/New Sounds/bonus tracks) ... CD
Stang/Outta Sight (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $9.99
Rare soul galore – a pair of totally rare albums, plus bonus tracks too! First up is Willie & West At Their Best – a killer of a soul album from the New Jersey underground! This is the same Willie from Willie & The Mighty Magnificents – working here with singer West, who he supposedly started out with. The pair have a style that's a bit like some of the sock-soul duos of the 60s – but they're also willing to let each other take the lead from time to time, singing in a deep soul style that belies their Augusta, Georgia roots! The album's nice and raw – a rare soul gem with a rough and ready heart that keeps it strong over the years. Titles include "Can You Hear The Voices", "The Will", "Beautiful Party", "Deep Down In Your Soul", "You & Me", "Key To My Happiness", and "Watch Yourself". The next album by The New Sounds is some of the deepest soul ever cut by the All Platinum family of labels – done by a vocal group who were contemporaries of The Moments and Whatnauts, but who sang with an even grittier sound overall! There's definitely some sweet New Jersey touches on the set, but some tracks also bring in a bit of a southern soul element too – a nice sense of raspiness on the vocals that's a completely charming combination with the spare instrumentation and rough-edged production! The album's exactly the kind we keep digging rare soul for – and it's a lost treasure from the early 70s east coast group scene – with cuts that include "Don't Take Your Love From Me", "Two Of A Kind", "Sweet Memories", "Having You Around", "Moving", "Tell Me Your Name", and "Just As I Am". CD also features 2 bonus tracks from Willie & West – "Attica Massacre" and "Nobody's Fault But Mine" – and one more bonus track from Robert Tanner, "Sweet Memories". CD

VariousNorthern Soul Survivors ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
A big collection of underground soul from the American scene of the late 60s – all brought together to show the sorts of grooves that kept on spinning strong all through the 70s, as part of the legendary All-Nighters scene at the UK's Wigan Casino! That bit of history aside, the music is more than great enough on its own – especially if you dig upbeat soul of the less-familiar variety – tracks that are rare, but put together with the same sort of top-shelf quality as the best of Motown or Atlantic Records at the time! Titles include "I Was Born To Love You" by Herbert Hunter, "Night Owl" by Bobby Paris, "What" by Judy Street, "I'm Comin Home In The Mornin" by Lou Pride, "Tear Stained Face" by Don Varner, "She'll Come Running Back" by Mel Britt, "Quick Change Artist" by The Soul Twins, "I Don't Like To Lose" by The Group featuring Cecil Washington, "If It's All The Same To You Babe" by Luther Ingram, "All Of My Life" by Detroit Soul, "Out Of My Mind" by Rain with Charity Brown, "It Hurts Me" by The Majestics, "Backfield In Motion" by Mel & Tim, and "Sidras Theme" by Ronnie & Robyn.

✨✧ VariousOn A Cool Day – The Soulful Side Of Cool Jazz ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
Not just cool jazz – despite what the title might say – and instead a whole host of soulful jazzy styles from the late 50s and early 60s – pulled forth from the kind of singles that once boomed from backroom jukeboxes in taverns on the south side of town! The collection is great – very much in the spirit of some of the Mod Jazz compilations on Ace, but maybe even a bit more farther-reaching too – and the tracks are a great mix of instrumental and vocal jazz numbers, put together with the same great ear as the soul collections on the Outta Sight label. Titles include "Like Young" by Ann Henry, "I Walk The Streets" by Lyn Avalon, "Scenes In The City (edit)" by Charles Mingus, "Comin Home Baby" by Dave Bailey, "Johnny With The Gentle Hands" by Cootie Williams & Wini Brown, "Baby Do You Ever Think Of Me" by Sonny Stitt, "Goodbye Old Girl" by Art Farmer, "Wayning Moments" by Wayne Shorter, and "Sack O Woe" by Ray Bryant.

VariousOnly Way Is Up – Move On Up To Modern Soul ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $11.99
Upbeat, positive grooves from the glory days of soul music – tunes from a time when things were changing up a bit – moving from the straighter styles of the Northern Soul years to the more sophisticated modes that would come to be known as "modern" by British fans in the 70s – but which, to us, just mean the kind of soul music that we've always found inspirational! Most of the music here is from the tail end of the 60s and start of the 70s – but there's a very forward-thinking vibe, and a great sense of energy that takes the righteous spirit of the times, and focuses it in some very personal directions. Titles include "Stop Steppin On My Dreams" by Jerry Butler, "It Hurts So Good" by Katie Love & The Four Shades Of Black, "Lucky Felly" by The Independents, "The Only Way Is Up" by Otis Clay, "We're Not Too Young To Fall In Love" by The Jacky Beavers Show, "Too Much Love Makin" by Gloria Scott, "Don't You Care" by Alice Clark, "Come Back (part 1)" by The Fantastic Puzzles, and "Now That You're Gone" by Sonny Turner & Sound Limited, and "You Girl" by Wendell Watts.

VariousR&B & Classic Soul Vol 1 – Workin Man's Songs From The Cellar Of Soul – 1954 to 1962 ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
Deeply soulful sounds from a crucial time in music – that late 50s/early 60s stretch when R&B was merging into soul, and created so many wonderful records in the process! The set's filled with quick-stepping groovers that are on the hip side of the spectrum – tunes that might have a jazzy inflection here, or a skittish rhythm there – and always topped by a fantastic singer who really knows how to belt it out of the park! These are the same sort of gems we've been digging on Jazzman's Jukebox Jam series – and titles include "Screaming Please" by Buddy Ace, "Anytime" by Dee Irwin, "Where's My Money" by Willie Jones, "For This I Thank You" by Geno Parks Lovetones, "It's Alright" by Art Lassiter, "You Don't Have To Go" by Sam Myers, "A Help Each Other Romance" by Lavern Baker & Ben E King, "Miss You So" by Lillian Offitt, "Workin Man's Song" by The Falcons, and "Sally Lou" by Little Frankie Edwards.

VariousR&B & Classic Soul Vol 2 – Lost In Sin – From The Cellar Of Soul 1953 to 1962 ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $5.99
Great gritty grooves from this wonderful series – a sublime set of R&B tracks, but all chosen from the perspective of later soul music too! The tracks are a nice change from the older style R&B compilations – as they all have a great little groove, and plenty of elements that really point the way towards 60s soul – both in the instrumentation and the really great vocals over the top! We totally trust the Outta Sight label for their choices in Northern Soul – and with sets like this, we find we can equally trust their choices in older music too – thanks to a sweet set list that includes "I Really Love You" by Jeanie Allen, "Homework" by Otis Rush, "I'm Shakin" by Little Willie John, "What Have I Done" by Jimmy Rogers, "Just Like You Like It" by Clennt Gant, "What A Mess" by Bobby Adams, "Gonna Catch Me A Rat" by Milt Trenier, "I'll Have To Let You Go" by Sally Stanley, "Crap Shottin Sinner" by Cile Turner, "Keep A Callin" by Paul Perryman, "I Want You Here Beside Me" by Johnnie & Joe, "Oriental Garden" by Ramona King, and "Lost In Sin" by Spirit Of Memphis.

Outta Sight (UK), 1966/1985. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Candy & The Kisses come on with a great Northern soul stormer here – the wonderful "Are You Trying To Get Rid Of Me" – a song penned by the trio of Jo Armstead, Nick Ashford, and the young Valerie Simpson! Ashford & Simpson also handled "Mr Creator" – which Val sings herself, in this nicely sharp style that's quite different than later work at Motown and Warner! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Lee MosesBad Girl (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Musicor/Outta Sight (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A great early gem from Lee Moses – recorded for the Musicor label, and with a sound that's maybe even more put-together than some of Lee's later work! Those raw, raspy Moses vocals are still very much in place – but they're backed with this great combination of jangly guitar, rough drums, and slow-burning organ lines that are mighty nice – with more than enough energy to roll through a second part! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New BirthNew Birth ... CD
RCA/P&C, 1970. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
Way more than just another soul group – as The New Birth are almost big enough to be their own sort of soul music village – complete with different neighborhoods along the way! Vocals are handled by the combined groups of The Mint Juleps and Now Sound – gals and guys that soar together wonderfully with backings from The Nite-Liters – who help give the record a righteous undercurrent at most points, which makes the whole thing sound way hipper than any other projects of this nature! Vernon Bulllock acts as the music director for the whole group – really pulling things together with a tightness that's outta sight – and leadership of the project comes from Harvey Fuqua – who arranged and produced as well. There's some massively heavy talent on board for this initial outing, and you can definitely hear it all come into play beautifully – a wonderful harmony of rich talents, without any egos or issues to get in the way. Vocals chance nicely throughout – sometimes a female lead, sometimes male – as do the grooves, which are funky one minute, and mellow the next! Tracks include "All The Way", "Pretty Words Don't Mean A Thing", "One Way Bus", "It's You Or No One", "Do The Funky Chicken", "The Unh Song", and "What'll I Do". Great reissue – with excellent sound, and very detailed notes! CD

Lyman Woodard TrioLive At The 1996 Ford Montreux Detroit Jazz Festival ... CD
Corridor/Uuquipleu, 1996. New Copy ... $9.99
Late work from Detroit organ legend Lyman Woodard – and sounds that are still very much at the top of his game! The set's a trio date, with drummer Leonard King – who was on the classic Woodard Organization Records – and Lyman's still got that lean, slinky groove on the Hammond that's totally outta sight – a soulful, vibe that's quite different than mainstream organ jazz, and which has this chunky approach that's totally infectious right from the very first note! The group also features Robert Tye on guitar – and the three musicians work together with a lean sound that's mighty nice – with a vibe that even transforms the familiar tunes in the set. Titles include "Serenata", "Disco Tease", "Ain't That Good News", "The Breeze & I", and a medley of "Perry Mason Theme/You Don't Know What Love Is". 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.

Lil WayneFuneral ... LP
Universal/Republic, 2020. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $31.99 35.99
The album's no funeral for Lil Wayne – and instead it's a bit of a rebirth, the kind of set that not only shows the world that Weezy's alive and well – but he's also not going anywhere anytime soon! The pace really picks up on a number of these tracks – maybe showing more youth and vitality than we might have expected – and Lil Wayne more than holds his own in a large group of guests, with contributions from Big Sean, Lil Baby, Jay Rock, Takeoff, 2Chainz, OT Genasis, XXXTentacion, and Adam Levine. Titles include "Funeral", "Dreams", "Wayne's World", "Not Me", "Bing James", "Trust Nobody", "Stop Playin With Me", "Wild Dogs", "Know You Know", "I Don't Sleep", "Bastard", "Get Outta My Head", and "Sights & Silencers".
