Sisters LoveWith Love ... CD
MoWest/Reel Music/P&C, Early 70s. Used ... $9.99
The incredible lost album from the group Sisters Love – material slated for release in the early 70s, but never saw the light of day, save for a handful of singles – a mix of rootsier southern soul and impeccable west coast funk styles, finally brought to light and with bonus tracks, to boot! Sisters Love came to Motown/MoWest at a transitional time for the label(s), who sent the group on tour, released a rare few singles in the US & UK, but didn't get the group over into the public consciousness the way it deserved. Soul Jazz UK released a stellar compilation of great Sisters Love recordings, but the complete album that they recorded for MoWest that never saw an official release remained in the dark – until now! Reel Music/P&C Records dove into Motown's vaults and came out with the 10 tracks intended for the With Love album in the early 70s – and pulls together 5 more. 8 of the 15 tracks have never been released officially before this essential release – and each one is a straight up stunner! Great songs that were written, produced & arranged by the cream of the crop of soulful talents – Willie Hutch, Hal Davis, Gene Page, Gloria Jones & Pamela Sawyer – but this is the Sisters Love show, and they shine brilliantly! Titles include the amazing "Fast Mack" (purportedly submitted for the soundtrack to The Mack – and it's funky enough!), "Communication", "Mr Fix-It Man", "I'm Learning To Trust My Man", "Giving Up", "I Ain't That Easy To Lose", ""Do What You Gotta Do", "Sweet Inspiration", "Give Me Your Love" and more.

✨✧ Barbara AcklinLove Makes A Woman ... LP
Brunswick, 1968. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Barbara Acklin's first album – and a landmark of Chicago soul that firmly established Acklin as one of the city's best writers and new female singers! Acklin had a classy sound that was different than some of her raw soul sisters in the city – but although she was classy, she also didn't have any of that little girl stuff that you might hear from singers like Denice Chandler or Barbara Mason. Instead, she had an approach that mixed a real soul vocal with more sophisticated material, in a manner that worked well with the evolving blueprint for the Brunswick Chisoul sound. Carl Davis and Eugene Record do a perfect job producing Barbara's songs, all forged nicely into the loping soul groove that set Chicago apart from other cities in the late 60s. Includes the big title track "Love Makes A Woman" – plus "Be By My Side", "Your Sweet Loving", "Come and See Me Baby", and a great cover of "The Look of Love"! LP, Vinyl record album

Sonya Spence & OthersIn The Dark/Sings Love ... CD
High Note/Doctor Bird (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
Two full albums from the lovely Sonya Spence – plus a bonus CD of female reggae tunes by some of her contemporaries! First up is In The Dark – a sublime reggae soul classic from Sonya Spence – a singer with a voice that's maybe a bit lighter than some of her Kingston contemporaries – but which is perfectly couched in the sort of production that really sends things in the right direction! Sonya sings, but almost with a whisper-like quality – and the rhythms are gentle, and sometimes given some slightly spacey production touches – so that a tinkling piano might take off next to the lyrics, or a drum part might splash a bit with a deeper, darker vibe. All of this really brings a lot out of Sonya's unique vocals – and lets the singer shine on tunes that include "Jet Plane", "It Hurts To Be Alone", "Damn Him", "Make Love To Me In The Dark", "Peace & Unity", and "Why Did You Leave Me". Sonya Spence Sings Love has the singer coming across with a fuller, richer sound than before – really finding her sense of place in the rhythms, which have a laidback, soulful vibe that's perfect for the lovers rock mood of the set! Tunes include a few great reggae remakes, and some originals – titles that include "Let Love Flow On", "Talk Love", "Fantasy", "Where Is The Love", "Now I Know What Love Is", and "Come With Me". CD2 features High Note Sisters – 21 more tracks from Sonya's labelmates, with work by Lorna Bennett, Marcia Griffiths, Judy Mowatt, Novelette Barnett, Lillian Williams, Daughter Cherry, Claudette Miller, and others!

VariousFunk Soul Sisters Presented by SuperFunk – Classic & Rare Female Funk ... CD
BGP (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
Funky female soul galore – a killer set of rare tunes that's one of the best sets of this type we've ever stocked! The SuperFunk crew at BGP have gone through the rich array of labels handled by the company – pulling out some massive tunes that really push our understanding of female soul – taking things way past the obvious hits and girl group numbers, into hard and heavy-stepping territory that we really love! Most of the tunes on the set are completely new to our ears, and there's a great mix of northern and southern funk styles that keeps things super-fresh. Drums crackle, basslines pound, and the gals belt it out loud, clear, and funky on a set of 20 tracks that includes "Tell Me What's Wrong" by Lynn Varnado, "Listen Here" by Valorie Keys, "Know What To Do When You Get It" by The Genies, "Heavy Heavy Hangs My Heart" by Vera Hamilton, "Better Get A Move On" by Louise McCord, "Pounds Of Soul" by Betty Bibbs, "Ooh Wee Baby" by Delilah Moore, "Sunshine Of Your Love" by Spanky Wilson, "Staying At Home Like A Woman" by Lynn Varnado, "Hold On This Time" by Fontella Bass, "Mr Fix It" by Thelma Jones, "I'm Glad I Got Over You" by Jeanette Jones, "One Way Street" by Little Ann, and "It's Too Late For Tears" by Rene Bailey.

VariousOur Lives Are Shaped By What We Love – Motown's MoWest Story 1971 to 1973 ... CD
Motown/MoWest/Light In The Attic, Early 70s. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
The first ever compilation of the best music made for MoWest – the eclectic, but still soulful cuts made when Berry Gordy Jr. relocated from Motown to the west coast in the early 70s – releasing cool and sometimes strange music with a soul background, yet toasted by LA sunshine! The MoWest subsidiary lasted just a few years, and gets overlooked in the canonization of Motown at it's most classic and revolutionary – but the legacy is pretty incredible. Funk, sunshine rock and soul fused adventurously by a stunningly diverse roster – late period Frankie Vallie & The Four Seasons (who's comp-opening track is a slept on sunshine pop-soul classic), breezy-jazzy-soul from Odyssey, the sister funk of Sisters Love, a stunning solo left turn from Spinners singer GC Cameron and more great stuff from Syreeta, The Commodores, Suzee Ikeda, Thelma Houston and others. We've been dying for a well selected MoWest comp like this for years, and Light In The Attic stepped to the plate and knock it right out of the park. The songs choices are great, the notes are great. . .everything about it is a win. Essential! Includes "You're A Song (That I Can't Sing)" and "The Night" by Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, "Our Lives Are Shaped By What We Love" and "Broken Road" by Odyssey, "Don't You Be Worried" by The Commodores, "A Heart Is A House" Nu Page, "I Ain't Going Nowhere" by Thelma Houston, "I Can't Give Back The Love I Feel For You" by Suzee Ikeda, "You've Got To Make The Choice" and "Give Me Your Love" by The Sisters Love and more.

✨✧ Barry SistersWe Belong Together ... LP
Roulette, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little set from The Barry Sisters – a pair of lovely vocalists who work together in a mode that's got a bit of an older style, but which is set to some nicely updated arrangements by Jerry Fielding! Fielding really brings in a playful swing to the session – one that gets past some of the hokiness that might otherwise be associated with the duo, and which really brings out the warm interplay of voices that made The Barry Sisters a popular act with New York crowds at the time. Tunes are a nice mix of familiar and lesser-known tunes – performed in a lively duo style that's mighty nice. Titles include "We Belong Together", "Carina", "Never On Sunday", "When I Fall In Love", and "In Other Words". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Loving SistersSisters & Their Sons ... CD
Peacock/Playback, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
If you don't love the Loving Sisters already, you'll definitely fall in love with them after hearing this amazingly soulful set of 70s gospel – material that really sets the group apart from most of their contemporaries! At a time when groups like The Emotions or Sweet Inspiration were secularizing modes that were borrowed from gospel, Gladys McFadden & The Loving Sisters flipped the whole thing over – and brought in lots of heavy funk and righteous soul currents from the early 70s mainstream – fusing it with their massive vocal approach, and coming across here with a style that's maybe even hipper than The Staple Singers on Stax Records. And this time around, the Sisters get help from their Sons – including Leonard Givens, who sings lead on one track – and other male voices who help deepen things even more underneath Gladys' lead. Titles include "I Can't Feel At Home", "Let's Ride", "We're Soldiers", "Cosmic Consciousness", and "Save The World". CD

RCA, 1981. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great step into the 80s for The Pointer Sisters – a record that has them bringing in themes that are a bit more soulful than some of their previous efforts! The album's still got all the big crossover potential of their other hits – but the groove's got a solidly soulful vibe overall – plenty catchy, and with some great 80s elements bubbling underneath – more than enough to freshen up their sound, and give the trio great new territory to work through! Titles include the mega-hit "Slow Hand" – plus "Sweet Lover Man", "We're Gonna Make It", "What A Surprise", "Got To Find Love", "Fall In Love Again", "Should I Do It", and "Someday We'll Be Together".

✨✧ VariousBrunswick Singles Collection – Sisters Of Soul ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sublime female soul from one of the hippest labels we can think of – a company who was always taking a chance, always trying something new, and always willing to give exposure to some great new artists! This cool collection is definitely the best side of Brunswick Records on the Chicago scene – as it features a few better-known singers, mixed with lots more artists who never issued a full album for the label – but who cut some wonderful singles that are even better than some of the imprint's bigger hits! There's a stunning array of greatness here – from sweet soul numbers that lope along in a warm groove, to badass tracks that have a funkier vibe – all handled by the usual top-shelf talents that made bigger Brunswick artists so strong. Titles include "My Baby's Gone Away" by Shirley Karol, "Walk On My Side" by Jackie Ross, "Caution" by September, "Love Is" by The Promises, "Where Do You Go" by Lyn Roman, "Raining Teardrops" by The Demures, "It Hurts To See You Happy" by Sylvia St Claire, "What Kind Of Girl" by Demetriss Trapp, "What Did I Do" by The Sweethearts, "Memories & A Broken Heart" by Linda Hopkins, "The One Who Really Loves You" by Sugar Pie De Santo, "Love Had To Be You" by Jean Shy, "That's What You Are To Me" by Tracie Robbins, "The 3rd Movement" by Sunni Nash, and "Higher & Higher" by Erma Franklin.

Ed Bogas/Ray Shanklin/VariousFritz The Cat – Original Soundtrack (picture disc) (2018 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Fantasy, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 34.99
The funky freaky soundtrack to Ralph Bakshi's animated feature Fritz The Cat – a really messed-up little film based around the original character created by Robert Crumb! Like the movie, the album's got a very skittish kind of feel – leaping from one genre to the next with each different track – but mostly featuring some older numbers from the Fantasy catalog, plus some key newer tracks for the set that are nice and funky! Original tunes include the bad-rapping "Fritz The Cat", by Ed Bogas and The Watson Sisters – plus the instrumentals "Duke's Theme" and "Bertha's Theme" by Ray Shanklin, and "The Riot" and "Winston" by Ed Bogas. Also includes "Love Light Of Mine" by The Watson Sisters, "Black Talk" by Charles Earland, and "Mamblues" by Cal Tjader. LP, Vinyl record album

Linda CliffordIf My Friends Could See Me Now (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Curtom/Blixa Sounds, 1978. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
The standout classic from Curtom disco diva Linda Clifford – and an album that showed that Chicago could rival Philly in the clubby groove department! Linda has a proud presence that really matches that of her better-known sisters in the City Of Brotherly Love – and she's singing here with a strong sense of personality that really sets the album apart from other female disco albums of the era. One of the greatest examples of this is her stunning "Runaway Love" – which has a bad-rapping, almost Marlena Shaw-esque monologue in the middle – but other tracks are equally nice, and include "Gypsy Lady", "If My Friends Could See Me Now", "Broadway Gypsy Lady", "You Are You Are", and "I Feel Like Falling In Love Again". Arrangements are by Gil Askey – who also produced the set in collaboration with Curtis Mayfield! CD features the bonus tracks "Runaway Love (12" mix)", "Gypsy Lady (12" mix)", and "If My Friends Could See Me Now (12" mix)". CD

DeCastrosRockin' Beat ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A surprising little groover from the DeCastro Sisters – and a record that's a lot more playful than most of their other work! The girls are still working here in that older-styled female harmony mode that first came to prominence in the 30s and 40s – but they're also getting some hip retuning from arranger Jack Marshall, one of the most dynamic talents in the Capitol stable at the time, and an artist who always manages to bring something interesting to a record. Marshall's going for a slight "rockin" undercurrent – not one that's rock and roll, but which uses bouncing bass at the bottom, some occasional Hammond, and some nicely jazzy horns that are often heavy on the saxes – all of which make the tunes swing with a groovier feel than you might expect. Titles include "Goody Goody", "Undecided", "I Enjoy Being A Girl", "There Goes My Heart", "Them There Eyes", "I'm In Love", and "I Love You". LP, Vinyl record album

Jr & His SoulettesPsychodelic Sounds ... CD
Moore (Spain), Early 70s. Used ... $11.99
Raw organ funk & wah wah soul from siblings Jr & His Soulettes – led by guitarist/vocalist/big brother Harold Moore, Jr. backed by his younger sisters – all of whom range from 6 to 10-years-old! The groove is steeped in the rawest funky organ soul sound, with vocal and instrumentals, and a couple of seedy song titles, when you consider the youth of the performers – but the actual sound of those is far from offensive, and actually pretty sweet. A world away from the ultra professional slickness of the Jackson 5! Titles include "Thing, Do The Creep", "Momma, Love Tequilla", "Pimp", "Waw-Waw Rock", "Love From Above", "Flip Will", "Do Your Funky Thing", "Slow", "Kat-Walk", "Rock 'N Roll Santa", "Pop Junior Pop" and more.

A trippier version of Khruangbin than we're used to – but that's maybe no surprise, given that the whole album's a dub version of the Con Todo El Mundo record – with all the best funky currents of that sweet set, and some wilder modes as well! Drums and bass really get a great workout – and the production isn't the usual Jamaican-inspired dub, but a mode that's maybe partly got a David Axelrod quality – as these guys use the instrumental moments to open up into all these dark, moody corners – while still keeping things nicely funky overall. Titles include "With All The World", "Sisters & Brothers", "How I Love", "Four Of Five", "Hasta El Cielo", and "Order Of Operations". Also includes bonus Scientist mixes – "Rules (Scientist dub)" and "Como Te Quiero (Scientist dub)". CD

Esther MarrowNewport News, Virginia ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1969. Used ... $8.99
A real landmark of bad-walking soul – one of 2 rare albums cut by vocalist Esther Marrow, easily one of the hardest singing sisters of her generation! Esther's got roots in gospel, but she's singing here in a righteous mode that features plenty of funky undercurrents in the backings – a style that hits harder than work by Aretha Franklin or any of the better-known female singers of the time – and which holds up beautifully over the years! Many tracks here are obscure ones, arranged tightly by Artie Butler and Gene Page, both of whom do a great job of blending fuller orchestrations with tighter drums on the bottom – giving the record a good kick on most tracks, but still shading in the tunes with enough sophistication to match Esther's interpretation of the work. As hard-hitting as Marlena Shaw during her best years at Cadet – with titles that include "No Answer Came", "Money Honey", "Walk Tall", "Peaceful Man", "Hello Brother", "Chains Of Love", "It's A Long Night", and "He Don't Appreciate It".

And while the bulk of the record really shows the influence of these mainstream 80s soul artists – and not always in a good way – the record also sports a brilliant tune done with Donald Fagan of Steely Dan, the sweetly grooving "Lazy Nina", which sounds like the best work off Fagan's Nightfly, and has Greg and Don duetting on vocals! Titles include "Behind The Mask", "Signals", "Shake It", "Countdown To Love", "Come As You Are", and "Playin With Fire". LP, Vinyl record album

Red Rooster/Light In The Attic, Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 15.99
A fantastic follow-up to the legendary Philosophy Of The World album by The Shaggs – the enigmatic trio of Dot, Betty, and Helen Wiggin – three sisters all recorded by their father, who had the foresight to capture their simple but undeniable musical brilliance! The trio's first album is much more widely circulated, and has influenced decades of musicians and listeners – and the group here are slightly evolved – better musicians, sweeter singers, but still very much in the same territory of naive expression and completely charming presentation! The album was put together in the early 80s, after the successful reissue of their debut – and features a mixture of home tapes and other rare recordings – with titles that include "Wheels", "Shaggs Own Thing", "Painful Memories", "Gimme Dat Ding", "I Love", "My Cutie", "Paper Roses", and a version of "My Pal Foot Foot".

A massive collection of work from Sister Sledge – a Philly quartet who were able to take an older version of female group soul deep into the disco years – then keep on making great music well into the 80s! The hits of the group are certainly well-known, but they've got a rock-solid approach that always makes their full albums worth digging into – really wonderful records that are heavy on classic Philly soul production at the start, then continue to move past the sorts of disco cliches that so many other female 70s acts got stuck on – as you'll hear in this batch of music that moves all the way up through 1985, and still has the group sounding great! The package adds in some great bonus material too, for a total of 97 tracks – and albums include Circle Of Love, Together, We Are Family, Love Somebody Today, All American Girls, Sisters, Betcha Say That To All The Girls, and When The Girls Meet The Boys.

The second album from Sister Sledge – recorded in Munich with the team of Michael Kunze & Sylvester Levay, the guys behind the big disco hits by Silver Convention – with that tight, bright and bouncing soul groove and sultry group vocals from the sisters! The approach works very well – as girls had those perfectly adaptable vocals that could easily roll with the style of the Munich scene – as they later did to that of Nile Rogers. Great, overlooked early work from team Sledge! Titles include "Moondancer", "Funky Family", "Do The Funky Do", "Hold On To This Feeling", and versions of the Stevie Wonder songs "As" and "I Was Made To Love Her". CD

Pride/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
A totally charming record from the wonderful Foster Sylvers – a set recorded back in the days when he was just a kiddie soul phenomenon in the Michael Jackson mode – with some great support from his sisters Pat and Angie! The set's got some of the same blend of sweet soul and sharper grooves as the best early Pride Records material by The Sylvers – thanks to beautiful arrangements from HB Barnum and Jerry Peters – both cats who know how to keep things interesting, so that even the mellowest vocal finds a way of coming out nice! Foster takes the lead on most tracks, but gets lots of harmony support from the girls – and although there's no hip hop sample here, as on his first solo record, the whole thing's got a very similar vibe – at a level that makes us wish he'd recorded a lot more as a kid. Titles include a great funky version of "Montego Bay" – plus "Hang On Sloopy", "Stubborn Kind Of Fellow", "123", "I Fall In Love Every Day", "Caress Me Pretty Music", "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye", and "When I'm Near You".

VariousBaby I've Got It – More Motown Girls – More Rare Treats From Motown's Female Roster, Including 16 Previously Unissued Gems ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.98
A stunning selection of female soul from Motown – all of it rare, and much of it previously unreleased! The set is a great reminder not only of how much we still have to learn about the biggest soul label in the motor city – but also of the exceptional quality that Motown brought to their recordings – so much so that even long-unissued tracks like these can easily stand with the biggest hits from other 60s soul labels! The package is wonderful if you dig female soul – and maybe even if you just like vintage soul in general – and in addition to rare cuts by big Motown names, you'll also hear some lesser-knowns that show the way the company was always trying to reach out for new talent in the fertile world of Detroit music. As usual, Ace has provided very detailed notes that offer as much history as information on the music – and the CD features 24 titles that include "It's Been A Long Time Happenin" by Rita Wright, "There Are Things" by Ann Bogan, "It's Crazy Baby" by Liz Lands, "Baby I've Got It" by Brenda Holloway, "Honey Don't Leave Me" by The Lewis Sisters, "It's All Right" by LaBrenda Ben, "When Someone's Good To You" by Oma Page, "In My Heart I Know It's Right" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Sweet Talkin Guy" by The Marvelettes, "Cookie Boy" by Thelma Brown, "I Up & Think Of You" by Kim Weston, "There Was" by The Lollipops, "Keep Away" by Little Lisa, "Playboy (first version)" by The Marvelettes, "I Know You Don't Love Me No More (orig mix)" by Yvonne Fair, "In Your Heart" by Patrice Holloway, "You've Got Possibilities" by Barbara McNair, and "Bad News" by LaBrenda Ben.

VariousBless The People Everywhere – Gospel Funk Of Peacock & Songbird ... CD
Peacock/Playback, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $11.99
The famous Duke/Peacock label was one of the most important forces in gospel music during the 50s and early 60s – home to some of the hippest, most soul-drenched acts – especially the male vocal groups that were helping transform the genre, and pave the way for lots of soul artists to come! Yet by the time of these sides, Peacock was also picking up a lot of influence back from soul music too – using funky currents to help sell a spiritual message – all at a level that never got in the way of the vocals at all, and in face only seemed to inspire the singers with a more righteous sound overall! Once the label merged with ABC Records in the early 70s, things got even cooler and groovier – but even on the cuts before those numbers, there's a funky soul vibe that resonates throughout this collection – and makes the whole thing one of the most badass gospel sets we've ever stocked. Titles include "Where Could I Go" by Pilgrim Outlets, "Try Again" by The Loving Sisters, "Generation Gap" by Paul Owens & The Capital City Star Singers, "Something For Nothing" by Carl Bean & Universal Love, "This Is Not The First Time I've Been Last" by Inez Andrews, "Voo Doo Ism" by Spirit Of Memphis, "Bless The People Everywhere" by Liz Dargan & The Gospelettes, "What's Wrong With People Today" by The Sensational Williams Brothers, "Games People Play" by The Salem Travelers, "Living A Saved Life Now" by Josh Albert Hailey, and "Crying Won't Help" by Pilgrim Jubilees.

VariousHallelujah – The Songs Of Leonard Cohen ... CD
Ace (UK), 1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy ... $9.99 19.98
A wonderful tribute to the songwriting genius of Leonard Cohen – one that begins with some of his key contemporaries taking on his important songs – then stretches out over the space of decades, to show just how important Cohen's material has been to more contemporary performers! In fact, given that Leonard never really cracked the charts during his early run for Columbia Records, he's actually maybe been one of those artists who are more "musicians' musicians", or "singers' singers" – because his talents have been a huge inspiration to so many other creators – a bit like the statement once made about the Velvet Underground, that they never sold many records – but every one of those records seemed to find a place in the hands of people who were then inspired by them. The package features the usual great Ace Records attention to detail, which includes copious notes on the material, and lots of the history behind the songs – for titles that include "Tower Of Song" by Marianne Faithfull, "Sisters Of Mercy" by Dion, "Lover Lover Lover" by David Blue, "Hey That's No Way To Say Goodbye" by Judy Collins, "Everybody Knows" by Barb Jungr, "Heart With No Companion" by Ron Sexsmith, "True Love Leaves No Traces" by Tom Northcott, "First We Take Manhattan" by Joe Cocker, "Avalanche" by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, "Chelsea Hotel No 2" by Rufus Wainwright, "Hallelujah" by Jeff Buckley, "Famous Blue Raincoat" by Marissa Nadler, "Suzanne" by Nina Simone, "Come Spend The Morning" by Lee Hazlewood, and "God Is Alive Magic Is Afoot" by Buffy Sainte Marie.

A second turn in the Movements series on the Perfect Toy label – some of the most blazingly funky 45s you'll hear – put together by the Tobias Kirmayer of Tramp Records!

✨✧ Taj MahalOooh So Good N Blues ... LP
Columbia, 1972. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very rootsy feel overall – much more delta blues styled than some of Taj's other albums of the time – mostly with acoustic guitar behind his vocals, plus some occasional backup support from The Pointer Sisters – although even they manage to hit a rootsier feel than usual too! There's almost a folksy sort of intimacy to the record that we really love – a charming quality that we don't really hear in most of the other albums of this time from Taj Mahal. Titles include "Buck Dancer's Choice", "Dust My Broom", "Little Red Hen", "Railroad Bill", "Oh Mama Don't You Know", and "Teacup's Jazzy Blues Tune". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Taj MahalRecycling The Blues & Other Stuff ... LP
Columbia, 1972. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hardly any "recycling" going on here – as Taj Mahal takes bluesy roots and turns them in a whole new direction for the 70s, evolving the music way past the level most other bluesmen were working in at the time! At some level, Mahal's style is far more rootsy than most early 70s blues artists – often more acoustic guitar and percussion than you'd expect – but there's also a looser, freer presentation of the material – opened up a lot more than any delta bluesman from many years back, and often touched with some jazzier inflections on some of the phrasing. Plus, the music here features some unusual elements from time to time – including kalimba, tuba, banjo, and even some backing vocals by The Pointer Sisters. The album was recorded live, with a nicely organic feel – and titles include "A Free Song", "Corinna", "Conch Close", "Kalimba", "Bound To Love Me Some", "Richochet", "Gitano Negro", "Cakewalk Into Town", and "Texas Woman Blues".

✨✧ Esther MarrowNewport News, Virginia ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real landmark of bad-walking soul – one of 2 rare albums cut by vocalist Esther Marrow, easily one of the hardest singing sisters of her generation! Esther's got roots in gospel, but she's singing here in a righteous mode that features plenty of funky undercurrents in the backings – a style that hits harder than work by Aretha Franklin or any of the better-known female singers of the time – and which holds up beautifully over the years! Many tracks here are obscure ones, arranged tightly by Artie Butler and Gene Page, both of whom do a great job of blending fuller orchestrations with tighter drums on the bottom – giving the record a good kick on most tracks, but still shading in the tunes with enough sophistication to match Esther's interpretation of the work. As hard-hitting as Marlena Shaw during her best years at Cadet – with titles that include "No Answer Came", "Money Honey", "Walk Tall", "Peaceful Man", "Hello Brother", "Chains Of Love", "It's A Long Night", and "He Don't Appreciate It".

✨✧ Bonnie PointerIf The Price Is Right ... LP
Private I/FTG, 1984. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Bonnie Pointer sounding great in the mid 80s– on a hard-to-find album cut for Private I/CBS after a drawn out split with Motown – one that finds her in a prime, catchy dancefloor R&B mode! To our ears, If The Price Is Right holds up as well as a lot of the pop soul of the period, including Bonnie's siblings The Pointer Sisters – though it obviously didn't hit as hugely! It's got crisp keyboards, programming and 80s boogie, but there's also some room for more more tender balladry and chugging club soul reminiscent of the late disco years. Of course, Bonnie's lovely, soulful voice is the most important characteristic. An overlooked album that's well worth catching up with! Include "Premonition", "Johnny", "Come Softly To Me", "Under The Influence Of Love", "Your Touch", "Tight Blue Jeans", "There's Nobody Quite Like You" and "If The Price Is Right". This FTG CD has a whopping 9 bonus tracks – single, club, dub and extended 12" mixes and more – including "Your Touch (Club Version)", "Premonition (Dance Version)", "There's Nobody Quite Like You (Single Version)", "The Beast In Me (12" Version)", "Heaven" from The Heavenly Bodies soundtrack.

✨✧ Jr Walker & The All StarsWalk In The Night – The Motown 70s Studio Albums (A Gasssss/Rainbow Funk/Moody Jr/Peace & Understanding/Jr Walker & The All Stars/Hot Shot) (3CD set) ... CD
Motown/Soulmusic.com (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 3 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
6 Motown albums from Jr Walker & The All Stars – all long overdue for reissue! First up is A Gasssss – a gas of a record from Jr Walker & The All Stars – a set that has the magical Johnny Bristol producing – giving the group this really warm, soaring sound that's totally great! Walker still serves up plenty of strong tenor solos, but there's also some vocal currents in the mix – strong leads at times, but also some nice backups too – all of which really helps to keep things soaring! Titles a nice mix of Motown covers and original material – and titles include "I Was Made To Love Her", "Do You See My Love", "And When I Die", "Honey Come Back", "Holly Holy", "Riding High On Love", "At A Saturday Matinee", and "Groove & Move". Next up is Rainbow Funk – a record that definitely has Jr Walker & The All Stars picking up a bit of funk – but in a groove that still mixes things with that warmly soulful glow the group had right from the start! The basslines are definitely up a bit from before – although not rumbling in Norman Whitfield territory – and the sax solos get a bit more space to stretch out and bite on the longer numbers, but often with a bit of backing vocals to warm things up around the edges! Jr is great all the way through – Motown's very strong answer to King Curtis – and titles include "Right On Brothers & Sisters", "Way Back Home", "Feeling Alright", "Psychedelic Shack", "Pieces Of A Man", and "Teach Them To Pray". Moody Jr is a sweet early 70s groover from Jr Walker & The All Stars – a set that reunites the group with producer Johnny Bristol, who always has a great way of helping them set fire to their sound! Walker and company may have shot from the gate with a mix of R&B tenor and Motown soul – but the sound here is much more in the latter, more matured mode of the label – with strong deep soul lyrics on a number of cuts, which are balanced out nicely by Bristol's fuller production. There's plenty of sax solos too, of course – and titles include "Way Back Home", "Bristol's Way", "Don't Blame The Children", "Me & My Family", "Still Water Medley", and "Groove Thang". Peace & Understanding is a record that has Jr Walker and the group stepping out with some of the righteous touches promised in the title – partly in the choice of songs on the set, which are all nicely tucked into that strong mix of deep soul vocals and saxophone lines that had become the Jr Walker groove! The set features work from a number of different arrangers – all the hipper side of Motown in the early 70s, as the list includes, Willie Hutch, Gene Page, and James Carmichael – and tunes include two great originals, one by Hutch, one by Leon Ware. Tracks include "It's Alright Do What You Gotta Do", "Soul Clappin'", "Gimme that Beat (parts 1 & 2)", "It's Too Late", and "Peace & Understanding Is Hard To Find". The self-titled Jr Walker & The All Stars album is maybe the rarest in the bunch – an obscure UK-only record from 1974, and one that has the group's usual approach warmed up by some more ambitious arrangements – a bit like the direction some of the vocal acts of the 70s were taking at the time! The production on most of the set is by Clarence Paul – and there's mostly a focus on the saxophone, not any vocals at all – which makes the set feel a bit like some of the Willis Jackson or Lou Donaldson work for Atlantic around the same time – or maybe even a bit like Hank Crawford on Kudu. Titles include "Boogie Down", "All In Love Is Fair", "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life", "Break Down & Sing", and "Dancin Like They Do On Soul Train". Hot Shot is a mid-70s stormer from Jr Walker & The All Stars – a set that glides along on a fuller set of backdrops than before, with Holland-Dozier-Holland production from Brian Holland returning to Motown – but in a hip 70s style that has strings and funk dancing along in a great way beneath the strong sax solos in the lead! There's a bit of vocals on the record, but the real strength lies in the instrumentation – especially some of the weirder, fuzzier guitar lines and keyboards. Titles include "Why Can't We Be Lovers", "Hot Shot", "Probe Your Mind", "I Need You Right Now", and "You Ain't No Ordinary Woman". CD

Brunswick/Demon (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Lost funky work from one of the soulful sisters of Aretha Franklin! Erma's got a hard-hitting style that's right up there with Aretha's best for Atlantic – and on this album, she's working in Chicago with Johnny Pate, Sonny Sanders, and Willie Henderson – for a harder-hitting sound than her famous sis, really in the groove with the best of Brunswick from the late 60s! There's as much funk on the record as there is the deep soul you'd expect from the Franklin family, and Erma's vocals are incredible – equally at home with the original tracks on the record, as well as some late 60s hits that are nicely soulized by the boys in the band! Titles include "Hold On I'm Coming", "Baby I Love You", "Light My Fire", "You've Been Cancelled", "Can't See My Way", and "Gotta Find Me A Lover". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousHeed The Call – 17 Of The Choicest Maori/Polynesian Soul, Funk, & Disco Tracks ... CD
Vostock (New Zealand), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A little-heard assortment of rare funk tracks from the 70s – all music with a unique hybrid of styles, originally only issued for the small scene in Aotearoa – which most of us know as the nation of New Zealand! The music here draws on both American funk and south Pacific styles – and comes across in a way that's different than some of the more familiar Australian funk and soul of the same time – maybe more indie to that nation's major label polish – filled with the kinds of tracks that hardly need to answer to anyone in the mainstream – just the freaky folks on the dancefloor at a party! The tunes were recorded over the space of a decade, but almost all of them have a strong mid-70s vibe – pre-disco, but upbeat funk – with sharp instrumentation by musicians who'd clearly be comfortable playing other styles, but who often work here to back up a soulful singer in the lead. Titles include "A House For Sale" by Mark Williams, "You Can Dance" by Collision, "Voodoo Lady" by Dalvanius & The Fascinations, "That's The Kind Of Love I've Got For You" by The 1860 Band, "Mr Funky" by Inbetweens, "I Need Your Love" by Golden Harvest, "You Can Do It" by Tina Cross, "Disco Queen" by Mark Williams, "Don't Give Your Life Away" by The Pink Family, "There's A River" by Sonia & Skee, "Mr Music" by Ticket, "She's Knocking At My Door" by Johnny Rocco Band, "Sweet Inspiration" by The Yandall Sisters, "Total Man" by The Totals", and "Who Do We Think We're Fooling" by Larry Morris.

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection that looks at the relationship between American soul and reggae in a very unique way – not the early crossovers of soul and rocksteady in the 60s, but a big wave of disco-inspired sounds in the 70s! The set brings together some great Jamaican and British versions of American club tracks from the late 70s and early 80s, plus some soul cuts from earlier years – often done with rhythms that are slower and more bad-stepping, in a true reggae mode – but with songs and lyrics that are lifted right from bit hits by artists like Chaka Khan, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, and others! The mix of modes is wonderful – and maybe comes across even better than on some of the Afro disco records of the period – thanks to a great track selection, in the usual Soul Jazz standard. Titles include "I'm Every Woman" by Latisha, "In The Rain" by rRnest Ranglin, "Reggae Beat Goes On" by Family Choice, "Ring My Bell" by Blood Sisters, "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough" by Derrick Laro & Trinity, "Do It Nice & Easy" by Chariot Riders, "Don't Let It Go To Your Head" by Black Harmony, "Upside Down" by Carol Cool, "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" by Sharon Forrester, "Rappers Delight" by Xanadu & Sweet Lady, "Ain't No Stopping Us Now" by Risco Connection, "Am I The Same Girl" by Charmaine Burnette, and "Be Thankful For What You Got" by One Blood.

Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Storming groovers from the UK scene of the mid 60s – all gems from that special moment when female British singers were often working with a heavy dose of soul! You'll recognize a few of the names here, and will discover a lot more along the way – and although there have been other collections of this nature over the years, we can say that this one is plenty darn fresh – in part because it's got a good number of tracks that appear here on CD for the first time ever! Instrumentation and production is fantastic – clearly inspired by Motown and other soulful American sources, then tipped towards the special talents of the UK singers on the set – and delivered with a socking soul style that's pretty darn great all the way through. 25 tracks in all, very detailed notes, and a superb set list that includes "32nd Love Affair" by Friday Brown, "I Like A Man" by The Caravelles, "My Street" by Millie, "So Little Time" by Diana Dors, "I Really Got Carried Away" by Madeline Bell, "No One Can Take Your Place" by Karol Keyes, "Eeny Meeny" by Ayshea, "The Music Attracts Me" by Clare Torry, "Small Town" by Kiki Dee, "Love Makes The World Go Round" by Sharon Tandy, "Wishin My Life Away" by Angelina, "Girls Like Boys" by Ethna Campbell, "Make Him Mine" by Susan Maughan, "Heartbeat" by Dusty Springfield, "Keep On Lovin Me" by The Kaye Sisters, and "The Thought Of You" by Jenny Wren.

The Chicks are sisters, and work together in a mode that's very hand in glove – singing the lyrics together on this host of groovy tunes, but with a style that's a bit more down to earth than some of the harmonies of other groups of this nature – almost like the girls are so excited and happy with the tunes, they're exclaiming together – instead of trying to craft some more complex patterns with their vocals!
