Candy & The Kisses/Val SimpsonAre You Trying To Get Rid Of Me/Mr Creator ... 7-inch
Outta Sight (UK), 1966/1985. New Copy ... $11.99
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)... $12.99
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

✨✧ Chuck JacksonSilencer/Little By Little ... 7-inch
Wand/Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A cool one from Chuck Jackson – his take on the great theme song to the Matt Helm film "The Silencer" – but done in a romping soul style that's very different than the original! "Little By Little" is another upbeat number from Chuck – the kind of dancefloor soul that's a good reminder that his 60s work wasn't always in a heartbreaking mode! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Etta James/Mary Ann FisherSeven Day Fool/Put On My Shoes ... 7-inch
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A slamming classic from Etta James – an early Chess recording that really brings the singers vocals into focus – upbeat, grooving, and with a catchy hook you'll be humming the rest of your life! "Put On My Shoes" is a stormer – recorded in the years before Mary Ann Fisher would go on to greener pastures as a Raelette, this is a heavy late 50s R&B heater with Mary Ann growling and cooing in equal measure. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Nolan PorterKeep On Keeping On/If I Could Only Be Sure ... 7-inch
Outta Sight (UK), 1971/1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two rare ones from the early 70s years of Nolan Porter – a time when he was one of the most unusual soul singers around! "Keep On Keeping On" comes on strong with a romping rhythm and this weird, almost watery wah wah guitar line – almost mixing Northern Soul with a more righteous 70s approach! "If I Could Only Be Sure" has a more fluid 70s groove – tripping along with a sunny sort of energy, and almost an Al Wilson style of vocals from Nolan! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Mel Torme/Solomon BurkeComing Home Baby/Cry To Me ... 7-inch
Outta Sight (UK), 1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic little number from Mel Torme – his hard-swinging, jazzed-up take on "Comin Home Baby" – a tune that's still maybe one of the most definitive vocal versions of the song! "Cry To Me" is one of the key calling cards of Solomon Burke in the 60s – a tune that burns with a fire mixing gospel and soul – and which has these mindblowing vocals that really let you know how great a singer the man truly was! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousSoul On The Real Side #10 ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of vintage soul – really well-chosen tracks that go way past the hits, to uncover some great lost moments from singers both famous and obscure! We've loved all the other entries in this series, but this one may well be one of our favorites – as it's full of stunning soul surprises, even for longtime collectors like us – tracks that are not just great by themselves, but which also sound especially nice in the company of the others – making for the kind of killer collection that still tops anything we could find in the digital market, or put together ourselves from a handful of 45s. 20 tracks in all, all of them great – with tunes that include "Singing A New Song" by Fred Waters, "Let's Try It All Over Again" by Willie Hutch, "Day Before Tomorrow" by Smallwood Brothers, "You & I" by Joe Anderson, "Don't Let Him Get The Best Of You" by Whirlwind, "You'll Wake Up Wiser" by Betty Lavette, "Give It Up" by Bobby Womack, "Where Did You Learn To Make Love The Way You Do" by Sharon Ridley, "Truth & Love" by The True Pages Of Life, "Can't Stop A Man In Love" by Mirage, "When You're Gone" by Al Hudson & The Soul Partners, and "Girl You're My Kind Of Wonderful" by Bob Relf.

✨✧ Cody Black/Charles SpurlingI'm Slowly Molding/She Cried Just A Minute ... 7-inch
King/Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Two Northern Soul gems back to back! Cody Black's "I'm Slowly Molding" is a nice little tune that starts out with some walloping drums augmented by handclaps, and Cody's deeply felt soul vocals backed nicely with groovy harmonies and horns – soaring and building as the tune goes on – with energy that's not moldy at all! Charles Spurling is on the flipside – serving up an original tune that's got this romping piano line underneath his own lead – backed by a tight trio of female singers, with an extra-catchy vibe! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Freddie Chavez/Dave NewmanThey'll Never Know Why/Make Up Your Mind ... 7-inch
Outta Sight (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Freddie Chavez really cooks along here in a Motown mode – really echoing bigger Detroit sounds on "They'll Never Know Why" – at least in the arrangements and overall structure – while still managing to come across with a nicely rougher groove in the end! Dave Newman is on the flipside with "Make Up Your Mind" – a bright little groover that almost has southern show band horns on the start, before moving into this jaunty groove that bubbles and dips with Dave's rough-edged, but catchy delivery of the lyrics! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Herbert Hunter/JadesI Was Born to Love You/I Know The Feelin ... 7-inch
Spar/Outta Sight (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Two sock-soul groovers – back to back! Herbert Hunter's got this full, rich voice that's completely magnificent – a smooth polish over the top of the grooves, which have this vibrant energy that's like Motown moving down to Nashville – bumped up a bit along the journey, but in the best way possible! The Jades are a group with Hunter in the lead, and some gals in the back up – and they make similar romping magic on the flipside with "I Know The Feelin"! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Betty MoorerSpeed Up/It's My Thing ... 7-inch
Wand/Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Excellent stuff! "Speed Up" is an incredibly groovy loping soul track from Chicago, with arrangements by Tom Tom and production by Bill Bunky Sheppard in keeping with his best work from the time! Betty's got a nice raw soul voice, and really belts out the groovy track – which has an excellent hook. The flip's nice, too, and is a good cover of the Isleys' early hit – but taken into female funk territory by Betty! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousWanted & Needed – A Northern Soul Playlist ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Northern Soul, but of the rare variety – the sort that have always ended up on want lists of collectors, even though they've gained some fame on soul music dancefloors around the world! The set definitely goes past the obvious – as even amidst the world of Northern tracks, there's few oft-reissued numbers here – and many of the tracks are from the Swan and Jet-Eye labels, both quite obscure. Titles include "Never Too Young" by The Modern Redcaps, "Run Run Run" by The Persianettes, "Such Misery" by The Precisions, "Wake Up To The Sunshine Girl" by Joey Delorenzo, "And In Return" by Sheila Ferguson, "Tracks To Your Mind" by The Sounds Of Lane, "In Love" by Tony Galla, "The Spy" by The Guys From UNCLE, "Let My Baby Go" by The Embraceables, "Just Say You're Wanted & Needed" by Gwen Owens, and "How To Make A Sad Man Glad" by The Capreez.

✨✧ Patti JoMake Me Believe In You/Stay Away From Me ... 7-inch
Scepter/Outta Sight (UK), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Patti Jo's "Make Me Believe In You" is one of the greatest Curtom singles ever – and it wasn't even on Curtom! Patti Jo sings a sublime Curtis Mayfield number here – working with production from Mayfield and arrangements by Rich Tufo – a wonderful blend of righteous funky soul and strings that's more in the Curtom mode than most singles on Curtom! Socking female soul – and totally great! "Stay Away From Me" is also a Curtis Mayfield number – and the whole thing grooves with all the best energy of The Impressions' work on ABC in the 60s – but with the greta Patti in the lead! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Garrison/Outta Sight (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great back-to-back set of Northern soul! "Carlena" is a hard-rolling groover by Just Brothers – an obscure 60s harmony combo with a rough edge that's just right for the groove! The Honey Bees really kick it on "Let's Get Back Together" – a tune produced here with a hell of a motor city groove – and these fantastic raw vocals by the lead lady in the group! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Jeff Perry (Jeffree)/MandrillLove Don't Come No Stronger/Too Late ... 7-inch
Arista/Outta Sight (UK), 1975/1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the first great moments to come from the pen of Jeff Perry – the 70s soul singer who'd later rise to great fame as Jeffree on another label! The tune's got a strong piano in the lead, and a raspy vocal that almost makes the whole thing feel more like some indie gem than you'd expect from the more mainstream Arista label – and there's a snapping groove that really fits the positivity of the lyric! "Too Late" is a fantastic later cut from Mandrill – one that's very different than their earlier trippy funk, with a warm sound that's totally great! There's a piano line at the beginning that totally blows us away – and some soaring harmony vocals that make the cut an instant killer! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousCleethorpes Pier – Talk Of The North All Nighter – Central Promenade, Cleethorpes 1975 to 1978 ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The picture on the cover hardly does the music justice – as the image of a British pier doesn't even begin to reflect the soul and funk tracks within – even though they all got big play at Cleethorpes back in the 70s! Most of the work here is from the start of the 70s – and reflects a time when the rabid British soul scene was moving from the Northern modes that dominated the 60s with Detroit and Philly-styled grooves, to some of the newer funk that was coming out in the 70s – with space for even a bit of harmony soul and early club music too! The mix of tracks here is great – more funk and early disco than some of the other Outta Sight compilations – and titles include "Your Autumn Of Tomorrow" by The Crow, "I'm Your Pimp" by Skull Snaps, "Tear Stained Face" by Don Varner, "Like Her (part 1)" by Gentlemen & Their Lady, "The Gig" by Raw Soul, "I've Got The Need" by Spookie & Sue, "Marching Out Of Your Life" by Betty Baker & The Jaxis, "This Man" by Wally Cox, "Rainmaker" by The Moods, "Game Players" by Dooley Silverspoon, "Afternoon Of The Rhino" by Mike Post Coalition, "My Heart Needs A Break" by Linda Jones, "Spring Rain (short)" by Silvetti, and "Elusive" by Babe Ruth.

✨✧ VariousSoul On The Real Side #9 ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer soul from the end of the 60s and start of the 70s – all of it definitely on the real side promised by the title – with hardly a hit in the mix at all! The work here is nicely underground, but never rough and raw – instead, these great little sweet songs that always have a little groove – more midtempo steppers than hard soul rompers, and done in the best possible style of the time – with topshelf arrangements and production that really make the vocals sparkle! After years of soul collecting, we're stunned at how many great cuts can still be uncovered and put together in a great collection like this – but that's also what keeps us coming back for more, and what keeps us loving this series so much. Titles include "Tears" by Gloria Shannon, "Stay Away From Me" by Patti Jo, "When The Boy That You Love" by Peggy Gaines, "Girl I Miss You" by The Caesars, "Got To Get Through To You" by The TSU Tornadoes, "Don't You Know I Love You" by Major Lance, "You Girl" by Wendell Watts, "Do Something" by Ernest Ernie & The Sincerities, "Just Be Glad" by Willy Wiley, "Wedding Ring"by Timothy Wilson, "Boss Thing Together" by Kent Drake, "Keep Up With My Man" by Gloria Edwards, "I Hear A Melody" by Spice Of Life, "Hey Baby" by Anthony White, and "Second Time Around" by Innervision.

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

✨✧ Jimmy SmithGot My Mojo Workin' ... LP
Verve, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The title's a bit bluesy, and the record is too – one of the grittier collaborations between Hammond legend Jimmy Smith and ultra-hip arranger Oliver Nelson – who manages to make the whole thing come across with all the right soul styles in the end! There's definitely a nod to the electric blues of Chess Records and Chicago, but the approach is more sculpted in Nelson's tight, swinging big band modes – which snap along in the background, as Jimmy takes some freewheeling solos on Hammond that are outta sight – and even vocalizes occasionally along with his grooves – in a grunting, bluesy sort of way! Rhythm is augmented strongly by Grady Tate on drums and Kenny Burrell on guitar – and titles include "Mustard Greens", "Hobson's Hop", "Got My Mojo Workin", and "High Heel Sneakers". LP, Vinyl record album
(MGM pressing. Cover has surface wear and some clear tape on the seams.)

✨✧ Curtis HardingFace Your Fear ... LP
Anti, 2017. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The cover looks a lot like a vintage soul album from the 70s – and the whole thing sounds a lot like one too – as the vocals of Curtis Harding are maybe even more wonderful here than on his debut album, and set up with these majestic grooves that are completely outta sight! The record blends deep soul, funky currents, and soaring arrangements – all with a no-nonsense, no-gimmick vibe that hardly sounds like a contemporary effort at all – and instead, much more like one of those rare times when a current producer can really get a classic sound just right! Sam Cohen mixed and produced most of the cuts here – so our hat's most likely off to him, as he's in a rare contemporary breed that might include Adrian Younge – but the strength of Harding's ability to slide right into the grooves is also a key part of the album's success, as is the really righteous quality of his songs. Titles include "Face Your Fear", "On & On", "Wednesday Morning Atonement", "Need Your Love", "Dream Girl", "Welcome To My World", "Ghost Of You", and "Need My Baby". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousReach The Top – Rare Gems From The Tony Macaulay Songbook 1965 to 1974 ... CD
Teensville, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Tony Macaulay may not be the biggest name in 60s pop, but he wrote a few key hits in the second half of the decade – as well as a great legacy of overlooked gems that are brought together here! The set might be one of the nicest we've ever seen from the Teensville label – as it does a great job of collecting obscure tunes by Tony, a number in recordings that feature the man himself as part the group – all brought together in a way that seems to trace a growth from Sunshine Pop to more compressed modes of the 70s! If you dig groovy sounds from the glory days of AM radio, you'll find plenty to love here – lots of jingle-jangle gems that are pretty darn unusual, but completely outta sight. Titles include "Blame It On The Pony Express" by Peter Noone, "Reach The Top" by The West Coast Delegation, "San Diego" by Carl Wayne, "My Whole World Seems To Be Tumbling Down" by Billy Fury, "Waiting For A Call From You" by Tony's Defenders, "Don't Let A Little Pride Stand In Your Way" by Don Paul, "It Looks Like The Daybreak" by The 4 Kinsmen, "Alison Please" by Chris Kelly, "I Only Have Myself To Blame" by The Images, "Sad Eyed Romany Woman" by James Darren, "Baby Make It Soon" by Michele & Jeff, and "I Can't Stop Thinking About You" by Linda Kaye.
