✨✧ VariousLittle Taste Of Soul – From The Outta Sight Diner – A Cool Blend Of R&B, Blues, Doo Wop, & Early Soul ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Stirring sounds from the start of the 60s – all pulled from that magical moment when soul was first coming into place – brought together out of different strands of grooves that were rumbling around in the 50s! The set mixes R&B, vocal group, and even a bit of pop – but all with a sound that's plenty soulful throughout – and really uncovers some lesser-known gems in the process! These Outta Sight collections are always great for Northern Soul – and this one shows the roots of the genre – and really illustrates the way that so many 21st Century collectors are turning back to the generation before Motown. Titles include "I Say Hello" by Jimmy Breedlove, "Darling I Know Now" by The Mystics, "Because Of You" by The Dreamers, "Boss Bossa Nova" by Bellino, "Summertime" by Barbara D'Orleans, "Hi Fi Baby" by Teddy McRae, "Humdinger" by Little Marie Allen, "Please Don't Go" by Johnny Acey, "Baby Oh Baby" by The Shells, "Oh What A Fool" by Big Jay McNeeley, and "I Walk On" by Little Tommy & The Elgins.

✨✧ VariousR&B Singles Collection Vol 4 – Outta Sight Red Hot Rhythm & Blues ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The fourth smoking volume in this wonderful series – filled with excellent pre-soul grooves all the way through! The Outta Sight label is one that we normally know for Northern Soul reissues, but in recent years they've also been handling a lot of R&B – but all with an ear towards the sounds that also appeal to fans of later soul too – which makes for a very fresh approach to material from the 50s and early 60s – and often discovery of tracks that haven't gotten any notice for years! The package collects material from their 7" single reissue series – the a and b-sides of 15 different 45s – with titles that include "Image (part 1)" by Hank Levine, "I Want To Know" by Gay Poppers, "Tie Me Tight" by Bob Kayli, "Catch That Teardrop" by The 5 Royales, "Strange Exotic Melody" by Ruth Christie, "Do You Think That's Right" by Judy Clay, "If You Wanna" by Baby Jean, "Have Your Way" by Lightnin Slim, "Cherry Wine" by Little Esther, "Wild Child" by Donnie Elbert, "I'm Cuttin Out" by Ivory Joe Hunter, "Wow" by David Michael, and "What A Mess" by Bobby Adams.

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 ... $8.99 16.99
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

VariousHot Day In Harlem – The Soul Of The City 1970 to 1979 ... CD
All Platinum/Outta Sight (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
Funk, soul, and plenty more too – a massive batch of work from the legendary All Platinum label – the pre-hip hop chapter of the Sugar Hill Records scene! The work here nicely runs the gamut – as the set features lots of the great funk you'd find on All Platinum 45s, mixed with some warmer soul tunes, and even a few ballads too! We love the label (and all it's related imprints) to death – and it's been years since anyone's brought out so many gems like this from the New Jersey powerhouse of soul. And even though the title is oddly misleading – this isn't really a Harlem collection at all – we love the results of the whole thing – a smashing array of 70s soul cuts that includes "Ton Of Dynamite" by Frankie Crocker, "Beautiful Summer Day" by Mother Freedom Band, "Stand In For Love" by Pandella Kelly, "Home" by Gloria Barnes, "3 Minutes 2 Hey Girl" by George Kerr, "Hot Day In Harlem" by Rimshots, "Chance With You" by Brother To Brother, "She Comes Up" by Storm, "Too Sweet To Be Lonely" by The Internationals, "Young Bird" by Soul Generation, and "The Prime Of Love" by BBP.

VariousMod – The New Religion ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
A huge host of very groovy soul tracks from the 60s – all numbers that played big in the mod scene in London at the time, but which still sound great all these many years later! The grooves are upbeat and positive – the kind of swinging soul cuts that would play well into the wee hours at the sorts of small clubs and packed dancefloors that made London a very receptive place for American soul in the 60s – especially for the kind of killers like this! The set mixes together minor hits with lost Northern Soul gems – and the CD features 27 titles that include "Soul Sauce" by Timebox, "Bread & Water" by Mike Finnegan & The Surfs, "This Heart Of Mine" by Jimmy James & The Vagabonds, "Shake" by Sam Cooke, "Wooley Bully" by Lonnie Youngblood, "Help Me" by Owne Grey, "I Want To Know" by Sugar Simone, "Twine Time" by Alvin Cash, "Everybody Dance Now" by Soul City, and "Right Track" by Billy Butler.

VariousNo Boundaries – The Modern Soul Collective – 20 New & Treasured Club Classics ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
Sweet 70s grooves, and a few key contemporary cuts too – a really wonderful set that's full of overlooked modern soul gems and a great mix of mellow groovers! The package really serves up some of our favorite sounds from the 70s – tracks that are upbeat, yet never uptempo – and find a way of stepping along a midtempo groove that leaves plenty of room for the vocalist to really soar in the lead – hitting these rich, righteous lines that sparkle strongly throughout! The set list is superb, and features even a few surprises to our ears long-trained on modern soul – and tracks include "There I Go" by The Notations, "I Hate Hate" by Razzy, "Pour Your Little Heart Out" by The Drifters, "Daylight" by Bobby Womack, "Got To Find Ms Right" by Buddy Miles, "Tripping Out (Featurecast 2013 re-edit)" by Curtis Mayfield, "What Do You See In Her" by Inell Young, "You Made A Believer Out Of Me" by Betty Lavette, "This Side Of Heaven" by Gavin Christopher, "Spoiled Like A Baby" by Mystique, "If You Really Need A Friend" by Bobby Foster, "Smoothie Pie" by Sky Hi, and "I Don't Know" by Glen Anthony Henry.

✨✧ VariousSoul On The Real Side #12 ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A really fantastic selection of rare soul music from the 70s – not chart cuts that everyone knows, nor too-familiar rare groove numbers either – and instead, a wonderful selection of under-discovered gems that really lives up to the fantastic spirit of the other volumes in the series! There's a special kind of vibe here that's a bit hard to put our finger on – a quality that's upbeat, both in instrumentation and spirit – tunes that have a positive vibe, but still stay very groovy too – all in a special space between 60s soul and modern soul – the best sort of 70s mellow groove overall! Titles include "This World Is Moving Too Fast" by The Relatives, "You're A Friend Of Mine" by Words Of Wisdom, "American Girl" by Roscoe Thomas, "It's So Real" by McArthur, "I Ain't Got Much" by Ellerine Harding, "You Must Know Magic" by Darryl Stewart, "I Fell In Love With Love" by Leo McCarty, "I Got It From Heaven" by Billy Harner, "Gif6 Of Love" by Gloria Walker, "All These Memories" by Almeta Lattimore, and "I Wanna Make Love To You" by Jimmy Norman.

Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

Roy BuchananLoading Zone ... LP
Atlantic, 1974. Very Good+ ... $9.99
One of those 70s rock albums that seems to turn up in a fair bit of collections of hip soul and jazz – a bit like the work of Harvey Mandel, and with a similar blend of blues rock currents with farther-reaching ideals! Roy Buchanan is spectacular on the guitar here – the kind of player who almost could have fronted a bigger arena rock group, given his chops – but who choses instead to keep things close to the chest, with the more down to earth vibe of his look on the cover – even though his playing here is pretty outta sight. Roy's got some great help on the album – including some of the MGs on a version of "Green Onions" – plus more guitar from Steve Cropper on other tracks, plus piano from Jan Hammer, bass from Stanley Clarke, and drums from Narada Michael Walden. Other titles include "Judy", "Your Love", "Done Your Daddy Dirty", "The Circle", and "Hidden". LP, Vinyl record album

Luv'd OnesTruth Gotta Stand ... CD
Beat Rocket, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 26.99
A very hip group from the Michigan scene of the 60s – an all-female outfit, but one with a sound that's a lot more raw than the sweet girl group sounds you might be expecting! The Luv'd Ones have a great way with a bassline and sinister guitar riff – at a level that often gives these tracks a garagey vibe that's really outta sight, and which is even more surprising when the vocals come into play with the instrumentation – very different than other 60s standards, with a quality that really sets these guys apart from the pack! The set brings together rare singles and a number of unissued tracks – all to make for a lost girl rock treasure that includes the titles "Scratchy", "Please Get Up", "He Cried", "Dance Kid Dance", "Stand Tall", "Yeah I'm Feelin Fine", "The Memory Of It All", "Up Down Sue", "Truth Gotta Stand", "Walk Me Too The Door", and "Stand Tall".

OpalsCan't Give It Up/End My Suffering ... 7-inch
Ace/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
The Opals were a great Chicago area group who never cut many records while they were at the Okeh label – so this cut is an extra-special treat, as it's an unreleased number that has the trio working in this bad-stepping mode that's really outta sight! The harmonies soar nicely with the groove – and the flipside is also an unissued cut from the same time – one with this jazzy groove that really does great things with the vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jimmy SmithGot My Mojo Workin' ... LP
Verve, 1965. Very Good- Gatefold ... $7.99
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".

✨✧ New BirthNew Birth ... CD
RCA/P&C, 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ VariousAll Night Long – Northern Soul Floorfillers ... CD
Numero/J&D, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ SylviaSweet Stuff ... LP
Vibration/We Want Sounds (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The great Sylvia Robinson hit the charts in the 70s with a huge crossover hit – but somehow, this album from the time has always been one of her trickiest to find – a complete gem through and through, done with a slinky, sexy style that's completely outta sight! Robinson's maybe best known as the force behind Sugarhill Records – but a few years before, she was already a maestro in the studio at the helm of the Vibration/All-Platinum label – cooking up sublime New Jersey soul tracks with other groups, and using all those talents on her own vocals as well! There's a mellow, midtempo groove to the set – just like Sylvia's big hit – and the approach is perfect for her sensual vocals – on titles that include "I Can't Help It", "Pussycat", "Soul Je T'Aime", "Sho Nuff Boogie", "Private Performance", "The Notion", and "Coward's Way Out".

Greer can be a one-man band at times, but here he works with help from some other musicians too – although mostly serves things up with his own instrumentation on funky drums, Fender Rhodes, organ, moog, congas, and even flute – the last of which Greer plays with a slinky, soulful quality that's really outta sight! Titles include "Bumpy Rhodes", "Hollow Water", "Gorilla Funk Two", "Hazy Lazy", "Druid Soul", "Night Of The Fox", "Hell's Pilgrims", and "Space Debris". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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
