Patti LabellePatti Labelle (1977) ... LP
CBS, 1977. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Patti's first solo album – recorded after splitting with the group Labelle, moving into a more sophisticated Diva soul mode that kept her strong for years to come! The album's pretty great, stepping out into the solo soul realm with terrific footing – and the best tunes have a smoothed out modern approach that's actually quite refreshing – and a bit better than some of the work by Labelle in the late years! 9 tracks in all, including "Dan Swit Me", "You Can't Judge A Book By The Cover", "I Think About You" and "Do I Stand A Chance". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Name in pen on cover & labels. Cover has light edge wear.)

Patti LabelleSpirit's In It ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1981. Sealed ... $5.99
Smooth early 80s work from Patti – a bit over the top at times, but nicely restrained at others. Despite the fact that Patti's in the hands of top Philly International talents like Gamble & Huff, and Dexter Wansel – the effort's still very much her own, in full diva mode over a range of styles, from uptempo to mellow. Titles include "Family", "Boats Against The Current", "Shoot Him On Sight", "Over The Rainbow", "The Spirit's In It", and "I Fell In Love Without A Warning". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed copy with 'Nice Price' sticker. Cover has a cutout hole and light corner bend.)

Patti LaBelle & The BluebellsYou'll Never Walk Alone/Decator Street ... 7-inch
Parkway, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Early work from Patti LaBelle, done in a very girl group style, with very young vocals, and kind of a popping organ style on both sides. Patti gets raw on the tracks, breaking over the top in a cool pleasing style that reminds us a lot of the best work by The Exciters from the time – especially on "Academy Award"! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Patti LabelleWinner In You ... LP
MCA, 1986. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A bit one for Patti Labelle in the 80s – a set that crossed over big at the time, but which still has the lady in very soulful territory! Patti seems to sparkle most here on the mellower cuts – the gentle groovers and laidback ballads that helped open her up to a whole new audience, and which really give her a different sound than her 70s Labelle years. Titles include the Bacharach/Carol Bayer Sager title "On My Own" – sung as a duet with Michael McDonald – plus "Oh People", "There's A Winner In You", "Finally We're Back Together", "Beat My Heart Like A Drum", "Kiss Away The Pain", "Something Special", and "You're Mine Tonight". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

LaBelleLaBelle ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1971. New Copy ... $10.99 12.98
A real breakthrough in female soul for the 70s – the initial album from Labelle – a set that's very different material than the group were doing on their girl group singles in the 60s! The trio here is legendary – Patti Labelle, Nona Hendryx, and Sarah Dash – three tremendous singers all working together at a level that really sets the standard for bad-rapping female soul in the 70s! We're not sure what happened with Patti and the group between their 60s material and this set – but whatever it was, it was something great – a turn towards a style that would keep them in the record racks for years! Titles include "Too Many Days", "Running Out Of Fools", "When The Sun Comes Shining Through", "Heart Be Still", and a nice version of "Time & Love". CD

LaBelleMoon Shadow ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy ... $10.99 12.98
One of the greatest albums ever by Labelle – known especially for the massive funky title cut, which has been an in-demand groover for years! "Moonshadow" begins with a nice funky piano intro, then rolls into a 10 minute groove that's really tasty – filled with lots of jazzy riffing, tasty conga, and a weird monologue by Patti that runs through different parts of the body and why you should appreciate them! The cut was lost on American audiences of the 70s, but became a huge one in the European jazz dance scene of the late 80s, probably because most of them couldn't understand how silly Patti's vocals were! The cut's nice and funky, though – and there's some other nice ones on the record, too, including "Sunday News", "Touch Me All Over", and "Peace With Yourself". Much more interesting than most of their stuff, with a hip mixture of jazz, soul, and hard grooving! CD

✨✧ LabellePhoenix ... LP
Epic, 1975. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet 70s set that has the trio of Patti Labelle, Nona Hendryx, and Sarah Dash teaming up with New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint – who brings the group some of the chunkier grooves he'd been using in his own great 70s work! The album's got a nicely romping sound throughout – a surprisingly good fit for the rockish soul of the girls – and the heavier use of guitar works really well with some of Toussaint's funky undercurrents – much more so than we'd think in a straighter setting. Titles include "Far As We Felt Like Goin'", "Slow Burn", "Cosmic Dancer", "Black Holes In The Sky", and "Messin' With My Mind". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has ringwear, edge wear, and a name in pen on both sides. Labels have a name in pen.)

ChantelsChantels ... LP
End, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $7.99
One of the greatest girl groups of the fifties – and one of the few who could sing with the same sort of depth as the best male lineups of the time! The Chantels really know how to hit on all burners when they get going – which they do here – and their work of the time is hardly a precursor for bubble gum pop of the 60s, and should more be seen as the start of a tradition that would include later groups like Patti Labelle & The Bluebelles, or The Sweet Inspirations. The whole thing's great – and although production has a bit of echo and electric bass, the sound is nice and raw, and hardly pop at all – and in the best End Records tradition, the vocals stay center stage throughout. Titles include "Maybe", "The Pleae", "Whoever You Are", "Every Night", "If You Try", "Sure Of Love", "Whoever You Are", "He's Gone", and "Congratulations". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s Roulette pressing.)

Damon HarrisDamon ... LP
WMOT/Fantasy, 1978. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Smooth Philly Soul from Damon Harris – ex-singer for both the Temptations and Impact, working here in that smooth late 70s mode that was showing up on a lot of the WMOT Productions projects – a rich groove that has help from members of the Ingram Family, and backing vocals arranged by Patti Labelle! The record's a mixture of modern soul and mellow club tracks – that later Philly groove that's very well placed here, and which makes Damon's vocals sparkle in much the same way that you might hear from that other Harris of the time – Major Harris. Titles include "Silk", "Ride On", "It's Music", "Dish It Out", "Funday", and "My Love For You". LP, Vinyl record album

Grover Washington JrIn The Name Of Love – The Elektra Years 1979 to 1984 (Paradise/Winelight/Come Morning/Best Is Yet To Come/Inside Moves/bonus tracks) (5CD set) ... CD
Soulmusic.com/Elektra (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 5CD ... $36.99 51.99
A great run of music from Grover Washington Jr – five full albums, plus lots of bonus tracks too! First up is Paradise – one of those records you see so much it's easy to forget how great it is! Grover's a real genius with the sax on this record – taking a "less is more" cue from Stanley Turrentine's 70s work, and toning down his playing to an even tighter style than on the Kudu albums of earlier years, to a level of ultimate economy that really leaves us breathless. Grover hits a rarified level here that we'd only reserve for a small few – like Steely Dan or The Crusaders, both groups who teeter on the same brink, and make it work perfectly. Titles include "Asia's Theme", "Tell Me About It Now", "Feel It Comin", "Icey", and "The Answer In Your Eyes". Winelight is a smooth smooth classic from Grover Washington Jr – a set that has a classy image on the cover, and a classic groove within – a completely sublime blend of jazz, soul, and funk, all given the sort of masterful finish that you might have found on the best records by The Crusaders at the time! The difference, though, is that Washington's the lead soloist throughout – crafting some especially nice lines on his trademark soprano sax – which he used in ways that made him one of the most important mainstream jazz artists of his time – and one of the few to really open the doors of the music to folks who might not have been listening otherwise. Grover's sense of space and timing is wonderful throughout – and titles include the classic debut with Bill Withers on "Just The Two Of Us" –plus "Winelight", "Let It Flow", "In The Name Of Love", "Take Me There", and "Make Me A Memory (Sad Samba)". On Come Morning, Grover Washington blows over some great arrangements from William Eaton – full, but lean too – and with the same sort of slinky groove that always worked best for Grover back at Kudu Records! The sound is tight, but never too slick – that magically soulful approach that always made Grover a real standout from his contemporaries – one of the few cats who could smooth out jazz without ever losing its soul – thanks to lots of well-crafted lead lines on soprano sax! Titles include "East River Drive", "Jamming", "Little Black Samba", "Be Mine", and "Reaching Out". Best Is Yet To Come is a set that strongly continues the special spirit that Grover Washington brought to his music during the Elektra Records years – as one of the few artists who really found a way to move forward from the style of 70s jazz funk, but not fall into some of the smoother jazz cliches that were about to envelop his contemporaries! Part of the strength of the record lies in Grover's strongly soul-based sense of timing – allowing for just the right amount of space between the notes to remind you that you're listening to a jazz soloist first and foremost, even when a guest like Patti Labelle might step in for a bit of vocals. Titles include "Brazilian Memories", "Mixty Motions", "Can You Dig It", "I'll Be With You", "Things Are Getting Better", and "The Best Is Yet To Come". Inside Moves has Washington soaring to the skies on soprano sax – as expressive a voice on the record as any soul singer might be – and maybe even more so on the few spots that do include vocals. Jon Lucien sings a bit on the record – and if you read these pages, you know how much we love him – but Grover's still the giant here, with a sense of timing and phrasing that few of his contemporaries could ever hope to match in a setting like this. Titles include "Jet Stream", "Sassy Stew", "Dawn Song", "Inside Moves", "Watching You Watching Me", and "Secret Stew". 5CD set features 19 more bonus tracks – all the single edits of songs from the albums!

VariousAtlantic Unearthed – Soul Sisters (rare & previously unissued tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $6.99 12.99
Sublime soul work from the glory days of Atlantic Records – and most of it unfamiliar too! As with the male volume in this great Unearthed series, this female volume is filled with amazing rarities from Atlantic – 5 previously unreleased tunes by some of the label's best female singers, plus another 11 tracks that show that even when they were topping the charts, Atlantic was still dedicated to putting out some great deep soul singles! Compiler David Nathan really did his homework here – not only picking out choice singles and b-sides for the compilation, but also digging up the rare unissued tunes that totally make the set worthwhile, even if you think you've got it all in your record collection! Titles include the previously unissued tracks "I Ain't That Easy To Lose" by Betty Swann, "Rescue Me" by Dee Dee Warwick, "It's Growing" by Margie Joseph, "Count The Days" by Patti Labelle & The Bluebells, and "Ain't Nothing Gonna Change Me" by The Sweet Inspirations – plus the titles "Thankful For What I Got" by Barbara Lewis, "It Ain't Who You Know" by Jackie Moore, "Full Time Woman" by Irma Thomas, "I Got To Love Sombody's Baby" by Judy Clay, "What A Man" by Laura Lee, "My Way" by Aretha Franklin, and "Please Little Angel" by Doris Troy.

Atlantic/Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
An all-Atlantic Records volume of this excellent series from Ace Records – one that features rare singles from the 60s that go way past the label's familiar hits – including a good blend of soul tracks, sweet harmonies, and rare rockers we never would have heard otherwise! The collection offers up the strong focus on mid 60s female work that you'll find in previous volumes – but there's also some harder edges here, given the Atlantic approach – and the tracks run the gamut from New York numbers to Motorcity sounds, and even some west coast gems!
