Smokey RobinsonQuiet Storm ... LP
Tamla, 1975. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Incredible work – a record that should be in every household! Smokey breaks free of the group sound of the Miracles albums – hitting a whole new mode, and inventing the "Quiet Storm" radio format along the way! The title cut – "Quiet Storm" – is a majestic long-building track that's as important to mellow soul as Larry Mizell's work was to jazz funk at the same time, and it's got a similar layering effect that has sounds building and spinning, with a bit of sound effects, great keyboards, and cool moogy touches that recall some of Bobbi Humphrey's best work for Blue Note, but filtered through a mellow ballad style. The whole album's great, and other tracks include "Baby That's Backatcha", "The Agony & The Ecstasy", "Coincidentally", and "Wedding Song". Proof that Motown was still great in the 70's! LP, Vinyl record album

Motown, 1967. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lots of great ones – from that period when Smokey was making the group an all-male one, with a harmony sound that was a bit harder than earlier days. Titles include "Going To A Go Go", "Tracks Of My Tears", "Ooo Baby Baby", "I Second That Emotion", "Save Me", "Choosey Beggar", "Whole Lot Of Shakin In My Heart", and "Come On Do The Jerk".

Smokey and the group do a great job on some lesser-known numbers – all presented with that wonderful warm polish that The Miracles brought to soul, a sound that's always great, even on a lesser-hit album like this! Titles include "Give Her Up", "Special Occasion", "Yester Love", "If You Can Want", "Just Losing You", "Much Better Off", and "You Only Build Me Up To Tear Me Down". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Smokey RobinsonTime Flies When You're Having Fun ... CD
RobSo, 2009. Used ... Out Of Stock
Time flies, but Smokey Robinson keeps things cool – laidback and mellow, and very much in the mode of his best solo work from earlier years – with a subtle glow in the backings that has us thinking "quiet storm" all over again! Given Robinson's rep, it would have been easy to just record any sort of dross, and expect a few sales – but Smokey's really gone deep this time around, and has focused on the elements that really work best for his famous vocal style – a spare mix of keyboards and mellow rhythms, produced with a slightly earthy feel at points – which arguably makes this set the most "classic" sounding record Robinson's recorded since the 70s! There's a few famous guests on the record – Carlos Santana, India Arie, and Joss Stone – but even they can't get in the way, and we're damn impressed at how much Smokey's in control throughout. Titles include "Girl Friend", "Time Flies", "Don't Know Why", "Love Bath", "That Place", "Whatcha Gonna Do", "Satisfy You", "You're Just My Life", "You're The One For Me", and "Please Don't Take Your Love".

VariousMotown Rare & Unreleased (blue vinyl pressing) (2019 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Motown, Mid 60s-Early 70s. New Copy ... $29.99
A treasure trove of rare Motown from some of legendary label's most classic acts – Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Four Tops, Brenda Holloway, Martha & The Vandellas, The Supremes, The Originals, Bobby Taylor, The Marvelettes, Marvin Gaye & The Jackson 5 – prime vintage late 60s to early 70s recordings that have barely if ever seen light of day! Motown recording artists put a lot of work into the recording side of their artistry back in the day, so there was a lot classic level material that didn't come out right away, some finding release on later compilations or on box sets, some STILL just now seeing release. Half of this dozen song collection have never come out in any form until now – including "If I Ever Lose This Heaven" by The Originals and stereo mixes of "For Once In My Life" by Diana Ross & The Supremes, "Pretty Little Brown Skin Girl" by The Temptations and "Touched By Love" by Bobby Taylor and more – plus the rarities "You're Walking Out With My Heart" by Brenda Holloway, "Which Way Is The Sky" by the Four Tops, "Let's Have A Party" by the J5, "The Boy From Crosstown" (Version 1) by The Marvelettes and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ MiraclesCity Of Angels (plus bonus track) ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
At the beginning of the 70s, Smokey Robinson and The Miracles parted company – and while to some, it might have looked like the group would flounder without the help of their famous leader, The Miracles hit the 70s wonderfully, and continued to grow tremendously as a group! Of course, part of that growth was due to the fact that Smokey had been replaced by singer Billy Griffin – who shared many of his talents, but also brought his own approach to the group. This concept record called City Of Angels, was their 4th, and probably most successful LP, with some smart production and nice arrangements from Freddie Perren and Wade Marcus. Includes "Night Life", "Love Machine", "Free Press", "Ain't Nobody Straight In LA", "Poor Charlotte", "Waldo Roderick DeHammersmith" and "Smog". Also features a bonus instrumental version of "Love Machine"! CD

✨✧ Bonnie PointerBonnie Pointer (1978) ... LP
Motown, 1978. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great Motown set from the 70s – a record that grooves with the new styles the label was exploring at the time, yet still has a rock-solid quality that links back to its 60s heritage too! The main strength here comes from Bonnie Pointer – whose vocals have an instantly classic sound that really fits the grooves – but the record also has killer help from top to bottom, too – including production from Berry Gordy and Jefrey Bowen, songs penned by Bowen, Smokey Robinson, Angelo Bond, Lamont Dozier, and Truman Thomas, and top-shelf help from California Motown studio giants. Titles include "When I'm Gone", "Free Me From My Freedom/Tie Me To A Tree", "Heaven Must Have Sent You", "Ah Shoot", "I Wanna Make It", and "My Everything". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. NOTE – Vinyl is in great shape, but cover has ring and edge wear, a bit of marker on front, and some stuck-on paper along the bottom on back.)

✨✧ VariousMotown Remixed Vol 3 EP – Chill ... LP
Motown/Universal, 2005. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
"Motown" and "chill" aren't two words we'd necessarily use in the same sentence (or the same decade for that matter!) – but the remixes on this set manage to bring the two together nicely, and take an older Motown groove into the realm of downtempo and electronics! The EP features 3 longer tracks from the Motown Remix CD – and titles include "Papa Was A Rollin Stone (DJ Jazzy Jeff & Pete Kuzma soulful mix)" by The Temptations, "Let's Get It On (Da Producers MPG groove mix)" by Marvin Gaye, and "Quiet Storm (Groove Boutique chill jazz mix)" by Smokey Robinson, which features bonus vibes by Roy Ayers!

✨✧ BlondieHunter ... LP
Chrysalis, 1982. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A weird one from Blondie – and with lot more going for it than the reception at the time would suggest! Following up the diverse pop leanings of Autoamerican, in some ways this is the logical next step from there – Debra's voice way out front in the mix, layers of additional preclusion, horns, global pop accents (post "The Tide Is High", that's a given), oddball covers – The last Blondie album of the 80s, even though it was only 1982, and their last as a band until a late 90s reunion – and as such, ignored by some and maligned by others at the time. It's fair enough for serious fans of the first couple LPs to dismiss the pop pastiche of the last couple, but there's some really interesting stuff here – including a title them written for (and rejected by) the Bond film "For Your Eyes Only" that's radically different than the Bill Conti/Sheena Easton song, a cover the Smokey Robinson-penned "The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game", "Danceway", "Orchid Club", "Island Of Lost Souls", "English Boys" and more.

✨✧ Tammi TerrellIrresistible ... CD
Motown, 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
An irresistible solo album from the great Tammi Terrell – the Motown singer who's best remembered for her duets with Marvin Gaye, and who hardly ever got a chance to work on her own! Despite that lack, though, this album's a standout classic – a slightly different take on the female Motown sound of the 60s, with production by Harvey Fuqua and Johnny Bristol – in a vibe that's maybe just hinting a bit at the sound to come – which makes us wonder how much Terrell would have given us in the 70s, if she hadn't passed from this planet all too soon! Titles include cuts by Smokey Robinson, Johnny Bristol, and Fuqua himself – with tracks that include "I Can't Believe You Love Me", "Come On And See Me", "What A Good Man He Is", "He's The One I Love", and "Can't Stop Now (Love Is Calling)".

✨✧ VariousPops, We Love You ... LP
Motown, 1979. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A unique Motown project from the end of the 70s – an album recorded in tribute to Berry Gordy, Sr – father of Motown owner Berry, Jr – and a key force in the development of the warm spirit and family-like climate at the label. The set's an all-star affair, with contributions from some of the label's biggest stars at the time – a number of whom appear here in exclusive tracks. The set features a remixed version of "God Is Love" by Marvin Gaye, plus "Mother's Son" by Smokey Robinson, "Reach Out & Touch" by Diana Ross, "This Is Your Live" by The Commodores, "You'll Never Rock Alone" by Jermaine Jackson & Tata Vega, "I'll Keep A Light In My Window" by Marvin Gaye & Diana Ross, "Come In Heaven" by Tata Vega, and the title cut "Pops We Love You", in 2 versions, by the team of Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and Smokey Robinson.

✨✧ VariousCome Spy With Us – The Secret Agent Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Seminal spy sounds from the 60s – a treasure trove of spy-themed tunes, and one that features loads of material you might not hear otherwise! The set doesn't feature the big hits from the James Bond films, and instead includes all the great little records that sprung up in the wake of those movies – cool jazz, vocal, and instrumental records that sometimes feature weird reworkings of more famous soundtrack numbers, sometimes lesser-known cuts from b-grade films, and sometimes fresh new spy numbers on their own! The style ranges from groovy guitar numbers to blaring jazzy tracks to slinky steppers that find a very cool balance between suspense and swing. Titles include "Dr Goldfoot & The Bikini Machine" by The Supremes, "The Last Of The Secret Agents" by Nancy Sinatra, "Theme From Danger Man" by Red Price, "A Man Alone" by John Barry, "Deadlier Than The Male" by The Walker Brothers, "Burke's Law" by Wynton Kelly, "We Should've" by Cleo Laine, "Our Man Flint" by Billy Strange, "Theme From Where The Spies Are" by Jimmy Smith, "The Liquidator" by Shirley Bassey, "I Spy" by Roland Shaw, "Come Spy With Me" by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, and "High Wire" by Brian Fahey.
