✨✧ Stevie WonderDown To Earth ... LP
Motown, 1966. Good ... $4.99
Sweet early soul from Stevie Wonder – an album that features his young and developing voice on a mixture of Motown soul tunes and pop covers done in a mellow sort of style. The record's still got Stevie's vocals swimming in larger backings and strings – but it does have these amazing breakout moments that really catch us off guard, coming through with a level of soul that's stripped down and lean – and which shines the gem that Stevie would soon become from this rough diamond stage! Good cuts include "Sylvia", "Thank You Love", "My World Is Empty Without You", and the sublime "Hey Love", which is one of Stevie's best cuts ever, and is worth the price of the record alone! LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono two globes pressing with deep groove.)

Stevie WonderFulfillingness' First Finale ... LP
Tamla, 1974. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
A fantastic 70s classic from Stevie Wonder – part of a great run of records in which he broke completely from his earlier Motown sound – and showed the world that he was one of the true musical visionaries of the decade! The righteous currents of his previous few albums are fully in place here, taken with a bit more focus that helped the record gain Stevie a few new followers in the crossover market, while still offering up plenty to please all the minds that had already been blown by is initial work of the 70s! There's some fantastic themes here, and so many new ideas too – and titles include the slow-funk moog classic "Creepin", which has these wonderful washes of sound throughout, weird vocals by Stevie, and some drums that bump around in off-kilter little patterns just at the right moments. The album also includes the hit "Boogie On Reggae Woman", plus "Too Shy To Say", "You Haven't Done Nothin", "It Ain't No Use", "Bird Of Beauty", and "Please Don't Go". LP, Vinyl record album

Stevie WonderHotter Than July ... LP
Tamla, 1980. Sealed Gatefold ... $39.99
A bit smoother than early days, but still very nice and soulful – and did we expect any less from Stevie? The record's got a nicely flanged-out soul groove – with a style that kind of expands on the vocal and keyboard production of the early 70s, taking the groove towards a sound that many other bands would cop in the 80s. Proof of this is the cut "Master Blaster (Jammin)", which many bands would cover at the time – plus lots of nice LP cuts, like "Did I Hear You Say You Love Me", "Cash In Your Face", "All I Do", and "I Ain't Gonna Stand For It".

Mid 80s, and while never that bad (nothing Stevie does is ever terrible – well, except for "Don't Drive Drunk"!), the record lacks that certain greatness that you'll find on even the lesser Stevie Wonder albums. Titles include "Stranger On The Shore Of Love", "Spiritual Walkers", "Land Of La La", "Overjoyed", and "Part-Time Lover". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stevie WonderInnervisions ... LP
Tamla, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $59.99
One of the best Stevie Wonder albums ever! Stevie's moving into god-like territory here – handling a multitude of styles, all well, and crafting some of the most sophisticated soul of his generation. The album's got the same jazzy references you'll find on the best work by Donny Hathaway – best heard on the sublime track "Golden Lady", which gets our clear vote for one of the best songs ever! Just about every track is great, though – and the album features the big hits "Living For The City", "All In Love Is Fair", "Higher Ground", and "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing" – plus "He's Misstra Know It All", "Jesus Children Of America", and "Too High".

Tamla/Motown, 1970s/1980s. Used 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
A classic testament to the genius of Stevie Wonder – a collection that brings together some of his most important work of the 70s, plus a few new tracks too – all graced with a back cover note that proudly states "written, arranged, and produced by Stevie Wonder"! That note is key to the strength of the set – as it documents Wonder's rise from child soul phenomenon to adult American composer – a voice that was one of the strongest of the 70s in finding a new sense of pride and power for the generation. The whole thing's great – as you'd expect – and even after all these years, the set stands as one of the best ways to jump into Stevie's work of the 70s. Titles include "Living For The City", "Superstition", "Front Line", "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life", "Superwoman", "I Wish", "Sir Duke", "Higher Ground", "Boogie On Reggae Woman", "Do I Do", "Ribbon In The Sky", "Master Blaster (Jammin)", and "Isn't She Lovely".

Tamla, 1976. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $49.99
A sweet little double LP – one that had some folks saying that Stevie should have stayed away from the "2LP syndrome", but for us a real treasure with lots of hidden gems. Besides the hits "Isn't She Lovely" and "Sir Duke", which were more than enough to carry the set in the record shops, the record's got lots of other nice cuts, including many that have that complicated jazzy feel of Stevie's work on the Inner Visions album. Titles include "Ngiculela – Esa Una Historia", "Ordinary Pain", "Black Man", "Village Ghetto Land", and "Love's In Need Of Love Today". LP, Vinyl record album

Stevie WonderWith A Song In My Heart ... LP
Motown, 1963. Near Mint- ... $9.99
One of the earliest albums ever recorded by Stevie Wonder – produced in a style that's light years from his work of the 70s, but which still has an irrepressible quality nonetheless! The format here is almost that used with Ray Charles at the time – one that goes for more familiar numbers, sung in a mix of strings and soul that sort of classes the whole thing up, yet keeps a bluesy quality in the vocals. Stevie's voice is a lot younger than Ray's, of course – and the overall song selection is different from the Charles country bag of the period – but the comparison is definitely there, especially given the image of the blind singer at the microphone on the cover. And while the approach is a bit flawed, it's still a compelling document of formative Stevie in the early years – on a set of titles that include "With A Song In My Heart", "Put On A Happy Face", "Get Happy", "Without A Song", and "Dream". LP, Vinyl record album
(Early 80s reissue pressing. Cover has a cutout notch, bent corners, and some discoloration at the edges.)

✨✧ Stevie WonderJourney Through The Secret Life Of Plants ... LP
Tamla, 1979. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very high concept work from Stevie Wonder! The record is, in fact, about the "secret life of plants" – partially used as a soundtrack for a film of the same name, but also acting as kind of a storybook in itself! Stevie's exploring a wide range of plant life and plant themes on the set – often in a way that has his keyboards taking center stage in little symphonies of soul that unfold like the petals of a flower in the morning sun – and which stand out as quite different from some of his vocal work, marking him as a talented electronic musician in his own right. Many tracks do have lyrics, too – often with themes of growing, seeding, and other garden metaphors that are easily translated to the human experience. Titles include "Secret Life Of Plants", "Outside My Window", "A Seed's A Star", "Race Babbling", "Black Orchid", "Send One Your Love", "Tree", "Come Back As A Flower", and "Ai No Sono". LP, Vinyl record album

SF Jazz, 2017. New Copy 2CD & DVD ... $24.99 35.00
A great showcase for the endless talents of the San Francisco Jazz Collective – as the set features some stunning original material, balanced with classics from Ornette Coleman, Thelonious Monk, and Stevie Wonder – all served up here in a beautiful extended performance! As always, the group are really brilliant with color – with this special quality that really sets them apart from so many other all-star groups, and which always seems to give their performances such a strongly unified vibe. Players include David Sanchez on tenor, Miguel Zenon on alto, Warren Wolf on vibes, Robin Eubanks on trombone, Sean Jones on trumpet, Edward Simon on piano, Matt Penman on bass, and Obed Calvaire on drums – and titles include the originals "Off Kilter", "Perseverance", "Tune For June", "Tidal Flow", "Venezuela Unida", and "Give The Drummer Some" – plus versions of "Creepin", "When Will The Blues Leave", "School Work", "Una Muy Bonita", "Reflections", "Criss Cross", and "Sir Duke".

SF Jazz, 2011. New Copy 3 CDs ... $24.99 35.00
The San Francisco Jazz Collective, recording in New York – doing a really wonderful job with a host of tunes from the mighty Stevie Wonder! These aren't soul songs, or easy cover versions – as the tunes are complex and jazz-based right from the start – stretched out in ways that only use the compositions as an initial framework, before adding in all these really creative arrangements, and strong solos from just about every member of the group! This time around the lineup features Stefon Harris on vibes, Mark Turner on tenor, Miguel Zenon on alto, Avishai Cohen on trumpet, Robin Eubanks on trombone, Edward Simon on piano, Eric Harland on drums, and Matt Penman on bass – an instrument that's really important to the shape of many of these tunes. The group also brings in a few originals – most in the spirit of Stevie – and titles include "Orpheus", "Young & Playful", "Sir Duke", "Creepin", "Race Babbling", "Superstition", "Do I Do", "Blame It On The Sun", "My Cherie Amour", "Visions", and "Life Signs".

RCA/Nature Sounds, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
The moog wizard Hugo Montenegro takes on the music of Stevie Wonder – in a blend that maybe makes the record one of the coolest that the studio maestro ever recorded! Hugo had already proven that he could groove in the 60s, and he picked up the moog at the end of the decade and started really working magic with the electronics – and here, the songs of Stevie Wonder provide an extra-special setting for his talents – as Hugo mixes in a range of keyboards, including some Arp, with tight studio work from Carol Kaye on bass, Hal Blaine on drums, and Larry Carolton on guitar. Titles include great versions of "Living For The City", "Too High", "Superstition", "Higher Ground", "You've Got It Bad Girl", and "All In Love Is Fair". LP, Vinyl record album

Motown, 2000. Used ... $1.99
An incredible debut – and the birth of a genre! India Arie burst upon the Neo Soul scene with this sweet little set a few years back – and her career's been burning up ever since! The set's got all the best elements of some of the best indie soul of recent years – sweet beats, honest vocals, and warm instrumental touches – but the best aspect is the "acoustic soul" use of guitar to give some tracks a slightly folksy feel – one that sets India apart from some of her contemporaries with a really personal approach! The whole thing's great – overflowing with wonderful tracks that include "Video", "Brown Skin", "Back To The Middle", "Part Of My Life", "Always In My Head", and "Nature". CD also features a bonus Stevie Wonder dedication – "Wonderful"! CD

Capitol, 1967. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A back-to-basics album of sorts – shorter, catchier songs recorded by the group after the collapse of Smile – but a record that still has some really wonderful moments overall – and which shows that The Beach Boys would never be the same after Pet Sounds! There's a mix of older rock themes and new adult ones here – sung by a group who's really growing into their emotions, and approaching things from new directions than in the past. Heartbreak and happiness are both center stage here – often at the same time – and titles include a great remake of Stevie Wonder's "I Was Made To Love Her", the haunting "Let The Wind Blow", the hippie-esque "Country Air", and lots more nice ones like "Wild Honey", "Aren't You Glad", "A Thing Or Two", "How She Boogalooed It", "Here Comes The Night", and "Mama Says".

Peven EverettReflections Of Misconception ... CD
Studio Confession, 2006. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
One of the boldest, fullest, and most soulful albums we've ever heard from Peven Everett – a set that's overflowing with enough classic influences to rival the genius of Stevie Wonder in the 70s! The groove here is really tremendous – not just house rhythms or beats and keys, but a fuller approach to soul that fills in even the smallest spaces – one that flows out majestically, and which is matched by some of Peven's best vocals ever – and that's saying a lot, given his genius in the past! There's some real instant classics here, and the album's got a new sense of confidence that comes through in the very first note. Titles include "The Superstar", "Another Tender Moment", "I Don't Want To Love Nobody Else", "I'm Missing You", "I Can't Keep From Loving You", "Kickin Up Dust", and "Party Of The Year". CD

Theo HillReality Check ... CD
Posi tone, 2020. New Copy ... $11.99 17.98
We really love the music of Theo Hill more and more with each new record – and here, the pianist is working in a quartet with Joel Ross on vibe – a player who makes a perfect partner for his music! Both Hill and Ross have this open sense of sound and timing – often using the spaces between the notes as much as the notes themselves – even when things are moving at a more full-on level, which they do often – thanks to contributions from Rashaan Carter on bass and Mark Whitfield on drums! Yet it's the sonic interplay between the vibes and keys that really blow us away – maybe especially at the few points when Theo picks up Fender Rhodes, and balances out the record with even more warmth next to his acoustic tracks. Titles include a version of the Stevie Wonder classic "Superwoman" – plus originals "Guardians Of Light", "Afrofuturism", "Scene Changes", "Mantra", "Swell", and "Song Of The Wind". CD

Paul HornVisions ... CD
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1974. New Copy ... $6.99 11.98
Nice fusiony jazz done with soul and airy atmophere by Paul Horn – including some choice covers, and sounds that range from fusiony jazz with a little bit of funk and more lilting numbers lifted by flute and wordless vocals! Horn has a tendency to go head first into a more new agey vibe, but here we get a more grounded approach with more soul and bits of funk in the bass, keys & percussion. The players include Larry Carlton, Joe Sample and Tom Scott. Includes a nice takes on a trio of Stevie Wonder numbers: "Too High", "Visions" and "Living For The City", Joni Mitchell's "Blue" and "Chelsea Morning" (the former featuring some vocals and keyboards by Joni), plus "High Tide"., "Long Time Gone", "Song With No Words" and "Dida".

Gillian Margot's a jazz singer, and clearly has a fantastic ability to use her voice with the dexterity of an instrument – but she also brings in some nice currents of soul to this standout set, which is the kind of record that should really push Gillian over the top! The great Geoff Keezer's on board, handling all the piano and keyboards on the set – and Margot seems especially well-tuned to his energy, as the voice and keys flow together wonderfully, but in very different ways from track to track – maybe no surprise, given that the set mixes Gillian's own originals with cuts by Stevie Wonder, Wayne Shorter, and Joe Sample. Titles include "This Night", "Lighthouse", "Shadow Box", "Black Is The Color", "Power Flower", and "Now Is Where You Were". CD

Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+ ... $24.99
One of the best of Les McCann's 70s Atlantic recordings, and one that captures him with a lot of fire and funkiness – and none of the looser modes of other recordings from the time! Les sings on about half the cuts – but the focus is still quite strongly on his funky jazz, which makes even the vocal numbers work well here – giving them a punch that puts the lyrics in very nice formation. Includes a nice long version of "What's Going On", with backing vocals by The Persuasions; a funky instrumental called "Shamading" that has some excellent clavinet work; and a few other vocal tracks with backup vocals by Eugene McDaniels, like "Let It Lay", "Talk To The People", and Stevie Wonder's "Seems So Long". Also features the funky instrumental "North Carolina" – one of Les' best funky tracks from the 70s, with a really messed up keyboard sound! LP, Vinyl record album

An unusual soundtrack to a great little film – a powerful narrative from the 60s, but one that's served up here with a set of Detroit soul! The music on the album isn't new for the film – but it is a tasty batch of Motown tracks, put together by the producers of the record because the music "had its original public acceptance as the popular recorded music of the period and climate surrounding the scene of the action [of the film]." Titles include "Mickey's Monkey", "You've Really Got A Hold On Me", "I'll Try Something New", and "That's The Way I Feel" by The Miracles; "Fingertips Part 2" by Stevie Wonder; "Way Over There" by The Marvelettes; "Bye Bye Baby" by Mary Wells, "Come On Home" by Holland & Dozier; and "Love Is Like A Heat Wave" by Martha & The Vandellas.

The record features songs you'd normally hear in the voices of Nina Simone, Stevie Wonder, and Billie Holiday – but given these very unusual arrangements that use guitar, drums, and light strings – plus some of Alicia's own piano – all to paint a very different version of the world when mixed with Moran's own words and very unusual style. There's a richness here that points the way towards a new spirit of America – one that's there for anyone with the ears to hear it – on titles that include "Round About De Mountain", "We All Just Live In The World", "Two Wings", "Feeling God", "Gold", "God Bless The Child", "Black Wall Street", "Higher", and "Oklahoma Girl".

Pacific ExpressBlack Fire (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Matsuli (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A seminal album from one of the hippest groups going on the South African scene of the 70s – a combo who mixed equal parts electric jazz and R&B, in a mode that's strongly inspired by American groups of the time! The Pacific Express vibe has plenty of echoes of the Earth Wind & Fire sound of the mid 70s, but also has jazzier tones at times – especially on the keyboards, which hit some spacey Stevie Wonder moments on some of our favorite tracks. Other tunes come across with a bit more of a crossover vibe – a style clearly engineered to overcome the racial boundaries in South Africa at the time, and one that helped the group sneak in the back door to fame The jazz component of some of the best tracks is especially high – mixing keyboard and guitar lines next to more biting sax work – and players in the group include Basil Coetzee, Robbie Jansen, and other luminaries who went onto solo fame in later years. Titles include "Feelings", "Brother", "Sky Ride II", "Black Fire", "Love Your Baby Right", "You're Everything", and "Windsong". LP, Vinyl record album

The whole thing's quite electric – with Lonnie on Fender Rhodes and other keyboards on most tracks, and rhythms that bring in bits of strings amidst the smaller jazz combo vamping – a blend that's smoothly soulful, but still more than funky enough to please our ears. Lonnie even sings a bit on the record, too – in this slightly-spacey quality that has echoes of Stevie Wonder – but the main focus overall is on his keyboards, which step out nicely over the backings. Titles include "Keep On Lovin", "What I Want", "No Tears Tomorrow", "Sizzle Stick", "Lean Meat", and "Filet O Sole". LP, Vinyl record album

Mel TormeLive At The Maisonette ... LP
Atlantic, 1975. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Great live work from a near-lost stretch of Mel Torme – a time when he wasn't recording as much as a few years before, but still has a hell of a lot of power in performance! Backings are tight and jazzy – served up by the Al Porcino, with the same punchy approach that Marty Paich gave Mel on other albums – and set to some surprisingly nice arrangements that Torme supposedly handled himself. The recording quality brings a nice sort of liveness to the date – really captures the crowd's enthusiasm in the Maisonette Room of the St Regis – and titles include "Jet Set", "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life", "Route 66", and "It Takes Too Long To Learn To Live Alone" – plus an extended "Gershwin Medley", a hint of Mel's medley years to come – and a surprising take on Stevie Wonder's "Superstition".

Incredibly beautiful work from this trio of female Brazilian singers – a group who recorded in France in the 90s, but who have a quality that goes right back to some of the best harmonies of the bossa nova generation! Most of the tracks are straight acapella, and feature haunting vocal renditions of tracks like "Aguas De Marco", "Garota De Ipanema", and "A Felicidade" – plus a great English reading of Stevie Wonder & Syreeta's great track "Come Back As A Flower" – and titles that include "Pra La Pra Ca", "Mar E Lua", "Ponto De Macumba", and "Rua Augusta".

VariousComplete Motown Singles 12A – 1972 (limited edition 5CD set – with bonus 45) ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, 1972. Used 5 CDs & 45 ... $74.99
The sprawling soul sounds of Motown, circa '72 – with all the amazing singles from January to July of that huge and historic year – collected here in the first of a 2 box set grand finale for the Complete Motown Singles series! Creatively, the first half of '72 was an incredible period. Veterans like Stevie Wonder, The Temptations and The Four Tops sound freshly inspired, Marvin Gaye is hitting his peak, Michael Jackson and The Jackson 5 are in full stride, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas and The Supremes are still cutting gorgeous singles. In other words, there's still a whole lot of distinctively Motown magic happening! But '72 also finds the label branching out into funk, funk rock and both sunnier and grittier material by a variety artists – from Undisputed Truth and Sisters Love, to Frankie Valli and Rare Earth. The label would soon make the move to the west coast, so it's truly the end of an era – therefore as apt of a point as possible for Hip-O Select to begin closing up their beautiful series. Vol 12A has 113 tracks on 5CDs – encased in a hardcover, 130-page full color book with essays and notes on each track – including songs by all the above, plus Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, David Ruffin, Jr. Walker & The All Stars, The Commodores, Syreeta, Edwin Starr, Thelma Houston, The Devastating Affair, Bobby Darin, Blinky, Posse, The Marvelettes, Blue Scepter, GC Cameron, The Originals, Eddie Kendricks, Gladys Knght & The Pips and more! Also includes a bonus 45 by The Blackberries – "Somebody Up There" backed by "But I Love You More" – with the Mowest logo on the inner label! Love this! Can't wait for Vol 12B! CD

More great soul music than we ever hoped to find in a single place – and a massive 6CD collection that looks at the key year of 1965 at Motown Records! The package is every bit as wonderful and thorough as the others in this series – with a whopping 166 songs collected in a lavish, full-color book that features nearly 150 pages of notes, photos, and wonderful images from the 60s! And as with other sets, the ultra-cool package even features a replica 45 stuck inside the front cover – a rare vinyl treasure that's almost as great as the CDs. But over and above the packaging, the music's the real thing to rave about here – as 1965 has Motown growing into even new levels of maturity and quality – as demonstrated by the work here by artists who include Stevie Wonder, The Supremes, Chris Clark, Frank Wilson, The Elgins, The Miracles, Earl Van Dyke, The Marvelettes, Barbara McNair, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Jimmy Ruffin, The Dalton Boys, The Four Tops, Brenda Holloway, Little Lisa, Richard Anthony, The Lewis Sisters, Danny Day, The Contours, The Vows, The Hit Pack, Kim Weston, The Freeman Brothers, JR Walker, and many others!

Motown/Hip-O Select, 1969. Used 6CDs ... $89.99
Motown at the end of the 60s – hipper and much more righteous than anyone would have expected a few short years before! The scope of work on this 1969 volume of the Complete Motown Singles set is really amazing – not just the straighter Detroit soul of their roots, but a complex blend of styles that includes heavier funk, sweeter soul ballads, smoking instrumentals, and even a taste of the label's future to come as part of the California scene. As with other volumes, the packaging and presentation here is sublime – way more than just a standard CD collection – and instead, a book-like package that features 140 full color pages, plus 6CDs that feature over 140 songs in all – a-sides, b-sides, and even some rare alternate mixes. Artists include Stu Gardner, The Marvelettes, Monk Montgomery, Jr Walker, Stevie Wonder, Arthur Adams, The Spinners, The Jackson 5, Chuck Jackson, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, Four Tops, The Rustix, Smokey Robinson, Edwin Starr, The Temptations, Shorty Long, Gladys Knight, The Originals, Jonah Jones, The Fantastic Four, Earl Van Dyke, The Honest Men, and even Soupy Sales!

Motown/Hip-O Select, 1971. Used 5 CDs ... $69.99
Massive Motown from 1971 – the ultra-hip second part of this key year for the monumental label! Motown was going through plenty of changes in 1971 – a year that saw Marvin Gaye's new righteous musical vision, a wave of fresh talent from the west coast, and the label's further push into sounds that went way beyond standard soul music – moves that are summed up beautifully here by artists who include Rare Earth, Popcorn Wylie, Stevie Wonder, Undisputed Truth, The Supremes, PJ, Jackson 5, Bobby Taylor, The Rustix, Jr Walker, Martha Reeves, Virgil Henry, Tom Clay, Diana Ross, Suzee Ikeda, Sunday Funnies, Chuck Jackson, My Friends, Valerie Simpson, Jack Hammer, The Messengers, Lodi, David Ruffin, Eddie Kendricks, and even Bobby Darin! As usual, Hip-O Select have done an amazing job with the package – pulling together 120 tracks that also includes some rare bits not on the official singles, and wrapping the whole thing up in a hardcover book that also features a bonus Michael Jackson 45 in the cover. The book is over 120 pages, with loads of notes, essay material, and rare photos that document this amazing point in the label's history! CD

Blue Thumb, 1974. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite records of all time! We've got to admit, this one's an acquired taste, but if you dig cool LA studio pop from the early 70's, this record's a real treasure! Nick DeCaro was probably best known to the world as an instrumental arranger for A&M (he did a lot of the Claudine Longet albums), but this record from the early 70's has him singing in a set of cool spacey tracks that mix studio pop and jazz for a sound that's unlike anything else we've ever heard before. Nick's backed by a tight group that includes LA jazz players like Arthur Adams, Wilton Felder, Paul Humphrey, Harvey Mason, and David T. Walker – and the sound is very compressed, very laidback, and very very hip. Tracks include "Under The Jamaican Moon", "Wailing Wall", and great versions of "Getting Mighty Crowded" and Stevie Wonder's "Angie Girl". Remember, it's an acquired taste, but if you like stuff like middle period Steely Dan or Maria Muldaur, you'll really dig this one! LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Oh, the feeling here is more than good – as the album's a stunner from the legendary Jose Feliciano, the kind of set that never fails to make us smile when we hear it! Jose's really evolved here from his earliest days – going even farther past the genius of his late 60s work for RCA, and picking up a host of more righteous soul influences in the process – really coming up with a great sound for the 70s! The record is filled with surprising gems – the kind of cuts that will make you go "damn!", and have you digging for other Feliciano records from the same time. Highlights include an excellent remake of Stevie Wonder's "Golden Lady", with loads of jazzy changes – plus the originals "Virgo", "Hard Times In El Barrio", and his classic theme to "Chico and the Man" – a cut that sounds especially great on this album, in ways we never appreciated when watching the show. Other numbers include "Essence Of Love", "Stay With Me", "You're No Good", and "I've Got To Convince Myself". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Caesar FrazierHail Caesar!/'75 ... CD
Eastbound/Ace (UK), 1972/1975. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 killers from organist Caesar Frazier – back to back on one CD! Hail Ceasar is a monster bit of funky jazz – filled with long tracks that all jam mightily, all at a level that matches or tops the best work coming out of Prestige or Blue Note Records at the time! The set is one of the rare few on the Eastbound jazz subsidiary of Detroit soul powerhouse Westbound Records – and it's the first to feature organist Ceasar Frazier as a leader – really grooving hard here with a Prestige-styled combo that includes Idris Muhammad on funky drums, Melvin Sparks on heavy guitar, and Houston Person on soulful sax – all produced with a gritty gritty edge by the legendary Bob Porter! The whole album's great – filled with incredible cuts that include a version of "Hicky-Burr", the first Bill Cosby theme – plus the tracks "Make It With You", "Running Away", "Hail Ceasar!", and "See-F". Ceasar Frazier 75 is a tightly grooving set that expands his sound a bit from the first! All the best elements are still in place here – including funky organ from Ceasar, production from jazz funk maestro Bob Porter, and a hip range of players that includes Horace Ott, Wilbur Bascomb, and Bernard Purdie. But the overall sound is somewhat shifted too – brought more into the tightly jamming jazz funk mode of the mid 70s – a bit richer and fuller overall, yet never in a way that's slick or sloppy – just more like some of the best later sides on Prestige or Fantasy from the same stretch. The record features a crazy version of the "Mighty Mouse Theme", a mellow take on the Isley's "Summer Breeze", Stevie Wonder's great "Living For The City", and the original "Funk It Down". CD

Verve, 2009. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lovely work from Bebel Gilberto – her debut for Verve – which in a way, brings her home, given that Verve released so many great records in the 60s from Brazilian artists with boundary skirting appeal! Bebel's work has never lacked warmth, but she's bringing even more of it to this set, with less clubby textures, and more of a timeless blend of voice, strings and percussion. Even the tunes produced or co-produced by John King of the Dust Brothers and Mark Ronson are steeped in a real love of classic bossa soul, just done with a nice modern groove, with some subtle programming. Carlinhos Brown's percussion is kind of the secret sauce here, but there's no overshadowing Bebel's lovely, wonderful vocals – and the covers are very well chosen. A little less than half the songs are sung in English, and titles include "Cancao De Amor", Bob Marley's "Sun Is Shining", Stevie Wonder's "The Real Thing", "Ela", "Far From The Sea", "All In One" and more.

The album's overflowing with fresh, original material – and titles include "Barreling Through", "Silver Bullet", "Maxwell Street", "Ashes", "Sock's House", "Motion", and "Event Horizon " – plus nice takes of Stevie Wonder's "You And I" and Freddie Hubbard's "Theme For Kareem".

The first Newban record is one of the sweetest ensemble funk albums of the 70s – and a record that's gone on to become a classic, despite the fact that most people know little about the group! Newban have a sound that's almost a jazzier take on the Earth Wind & Fire groove of the time – a style that's warm and fluid, and which really gets past the cliches of other larger funk acts – and manages to find a space in sound that's all its own! There's lots of odd phrasings and chords on the set – creating these very blue passages even when the group's grooving in an uptempo mode – almost like the sense of sadness that creeps out from Stevie Wonder's work during his best early 70s years. The sound is totally unique, and uniquely wonderful – and the album includes the classic "Father Time", plus the cuts "Magic Lady", "Mellow Days, Easy Nights", "Fatback Sally", and "Hungry Grin". Newban 2 is every bit as great as the first album – if not better – with some excellent excellent lost material that's the kind of stuff that still keeps you diggin' for the hard ones. Includes the track "Greenburgh", with a tight funky intro and a smooth sweet soul groove, plus lots of other great cuts like "Free Your Mind", "Easin' Through", "Find a Place to Live", and "Rhythm & Rhyme".

The second half of 1972 at Motown Records – a year so large, so productive for the label – the complete singles collection had to be cut in two! The sounds here really mark a special time for Motown – an increasing influence of the California sound on the soul of Detroit – moving forward in a push to even more sophisticated modes that really helps shake free of any overdone cliches of the 60s!

The biggest year so far for Motown singles – so massive, this series had to divide it up into 2 volumes! This first half covers the initial 1971 releases from Motown – music issued up through June of that year, marking another momentous season for the label – one that has them getting even hipper and more righteous than before! That change is clearly marked by the inclusion of Marvin Gaye's classic 45 "What's Going On"/"God Is Love" on the inside front cover – and it's followed through beautifully by a set of work that's easily some of the most mature to come out on Motown – tunes that are filled with uplifting vocals, dynamic arrangements, and production that's so sophisticated, it makes the big hits of previous years seem like simple pop singles. These crucial 6 months are covered by 5 CDs that feature 119 tracks in all – packaged as beautifully as previous volumes, with full color artwork inside a hardcover package that's better than taking a trip to any sort of music Hall Of Fame.

CBS/BGO (UK), 1975. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Jazz funk genius from Freddie Hubbard in the mid 70s! Gleam was a Japanese-only double album from the jazz giant in its original release – mighty funky at times, too – right up there with some of the best Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock Japanese sets from the 70s! It's a live set captured in March of '75 at Tokyo's Yubin Chokin Hall – long numbers played by a group that includes Freddie on trumpet, Carl Randall on tenor and flute, George Cables on electric piano, Henry Franklin on bass, Carl Burnett on drums, and Buck Clark on percussion! Each player has plenty of space to groove, and it's very well captured – you can hear the most expressive solos and the most subtle nuances. Some great solos by Freddie and the rest of the players – breathless tenor & flute by Randall, keys by Cables that are jazz funk perfection and interplay between Burnett's drums and Clark's congas & percussion that's somehow tense and comfortable at the same time. The shortest number in the set runs more than the 7 minutes and the longest is more than 20 minutes – and none is one second shorter than necessary, actually leaving us pining for more – making it all the more vital in the double album format. Released on 2CDs here! How this great album has been so hard to find over the years is a mystery. Titles include "Kuntu", "Spirits Of Trane", an amazing cover of Stevie Wonder's "Too High", "Midnight At The Oasis", "Ebony Moonbeams", and "Put It In The Pocket". CD

✨✧ JamiroquaiDynamite ... CD
Sony, 2005. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sweet flanged-out funk from Jamiroquai – a great little set that really recalls their brilliance of earlier years! There's a sound here that reminds us of the first few singles that made us love Jay and crew – a lean, clean, Stevie Wonder-inspired groove that's dripping with all the best compressed production and electric modes of the 70s – a cosmic approach to soul that's also got some pointedly acoustic touches that further expand the groove. As usual, the songwriting is straightforward and simple – the kind of clear toned tunes that rival any of the best of 70s AOR crossover work! Titles include "World That He Wants", "Feels Just Like It Should", "Dynamite", "Seven Days In Sunny June", "Starchild", "Loveblind", "Talullah", "Give Hate A Chance", and "Time Won't Wait". CD

✨✧ JamiroquaiEmergency On Planet Earth ... CD
Sony, 1993. Used ... Out Of Stock
The group's first full length album – and a classic batch of soulful funky tunes, handled with the charm and care that would make Jamiroquai one of the best new soul acts to come out of the UK during the 90s. Think Brand New Heavies meets Stevie Wonder meets Steely Dan, and you'll get only part of the picture – as Jay and crew work things together perfectly, blending a wide range of influences into a globally conscious cosmic groove that's a perfect soul platform for the 21st century! Titles include "Revolution", "Didgin Out", "When You Gonna Learn", "Too Young To Die", "Music Of The Mind", and "Emergency On Planet Earth". CD

✨✧ JamiroquaiFunk Odyssey ... CD
Sony, 2001. Used ... Out Of Stock
Jay and crew are at it again – coming up with a consistently soulful batch of tracks that shows the Jamiroquai sound has plenty of steam for the 21st Century! As with previous albums, this one's got a mix of jazzy house, Stevie Wonder soul, and touches of modern rhythms that are used tastefully and without too much pretense. However, this set's also got some interesting touches in a number of the grooves – more sensitive songwriting, intimate instrumentation, and a few rough edges that come as a real surprise after recent work. Not all the tunes hang together perfectly, but there's plenty of nice ones here – especially if you've dug any of the other Jamiroquai outings. Titles include "Little L", "Main Vein", "Twenty Zero One", "Picture Of My Life", "Love Foolosophy", "Feel So Good", and "Black Crow". CD

✨✧ JamiroquaiSynkronized ... CD
Work/Sony, 1999. Used ... Out Of Stock
Magical work from Jamiroquai – one of those groups that never fails to please our ears, no matter how globally overplayed they get in clothing stores! This one follows nicely on the style of Traveling Without Moving – very full-on in its production style, yet still oozing with the group's classic soul influenced mode. The ghosts of Steely Dan, Stevie Wonder, and Lennie Kravitz all populate the set – stepping along with other more obscure 70s influences, amidst a nice blend of keys, beats, guitars, and strings! Titles include "Destitute Illusions", "Canned Heat", "Planet Home", "King For A Day", "Supersonic", "Soul Education", and "Black Capricorn Day". CD

✨✧ Minnie RipertonPerfect Angel (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1974. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Minnie Riperton's first album for Epic – and the record that broke her from a hip Chicago underground artist into one of the seventies' biggest female soul stars! The record moves past the baroque soul of Minnie's early years with Rotary Connection and Charles Stepney – and hits a mix of mellow compressed LA styles and slicker funkier numbers that do the same thing for her Chicago-trained vocals that Rufus' backing did for that of Chaka Khan. Of course, it helps that she's got some superbly sensitive writing and arranging help by husband Richard Rudolph – and Stevie Wonder's definitely lurking in the background, too – not credited with production, due to contractual reasons, although he helped put most of the album together. Includes Minnie's huge crossover hit "Loving You", a perfect showcase for her beautiful 5 octave voice, plus the tracks "Our Lives", "Every Time He Comes Around", "Perfect Angel", and "Reasons". This legendary album finally gets its proper treatment – with very detailed notes from Minnie's husband/co-creator Richard Rudolph – and 11 bonus tracks from the vault – including "Lovin You (single version with countdown)", "Reasons (ext version)", "It's So Nice (ext version)", "Take A Little Trip (duet with Stevie Wonder)", "Seeing You This Way (acoustic)", "Edge Of A Dream (ext version)", "Perfect Angel (ext version)", "Every Time He Comes Along (ext version)", "Don't Let Anyone Bring You Down (Perfect Angel version)", "Lovin You (alt band version)", and "Our Lives (ext version)". Really fantastic – great sound and the bonus tracks are beautiful! CD

✨✧ Raphael SaadiqInstant Vintage ... LP
Universal, 2002. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A tough title to live up to – but Raphael makes it happen! The album's as wonderful as you might think – all the deeply soulful styles Saadiq worked out with Tony Toni Tone, taken back through a historical range of soul music – firmly planted in a legacy that begins with Stevie Wonder, runs through Maxwell and D'Angelo, and which points the way towards the future of urban soul. Backings are very much in the beats-n-keyboards mode, but Raphael works out such a wide range of moods and modes that the album avoids any of the shortcomings of other albums in such a style. Includes guest performances by Angie Stone, Leslie Wilson, T-Boz, Calvin Richardson, and D'Angelo – and titles that include "Doing What I Can", "Be Here", "Still Pay", "You're The One That I Like", "Excuse Me", "Tick Tock", "People", "Faithful", "Make My Day", "Blind Man", "Different Times", "What's Life Like", and "Skyy, Can You Feel Me".

✨✧ CommonBeautiful Revolution Pt 1 (with autographed booklet) ... CD
Loma Vista, 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful revolution from Common – a set that's maybe got more of a message than most of his music of the past decade – but which also comes across with a more interesting musical palette as well! Part of the album's sound comes from heavy contributions from PJ – singer Paris Jones, whose well-crafted soul vocals make for a nice match with Common's rhymes – as PJ appears on six of the album's nine tracks, and could well be billed as a co-star on the set! Other guests include Lenny Kravitz Chuck D, Black Thought, and Stevie Wonder – on titles that include "What Do You Say", "Say Peace", "Fallin", "A Place In This World", "Riot In My Mind", "Don't Forget Who You Are", and "Courageous".

✨✧ McClenty Hunter JrGroove Hunter ... CD
Strikezone, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Maybe the first album we've ever seen from drummer McClenty Hunter – but a set that's already got some heavyweight talent on board to help! Hunter's got a sound that's as sharp as his image on the cover – a classic approach to hardbop, underscored by some of the songs chosen for the session – which also features work along the way from Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Stacy Dillard on tenor and soprano sax, Eric Reed on piano, and Donald Harrison on alto – all top-shelf players who really enrich the soul of the music! McClenty also penned a few of his own tunes for the set – including some surprisingly nice ballads – which are mixed here with takes on tunes by Wayne Shorter, John Coltrane, Herbie Nichols, and Stevie Wonder. Titles include "Sack Full Of Dreams", "The Big Push", "That Girl", "Autumn", "Blue Chopsticks", "Countdown", "My Love", and "I Remember When". CD

✨✧ Janelle MonaeDirty Computer (45 rpm 2LP pressing) ... LP
Bad Boy, 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Janelle Monae knocks it out of the park here – sounding every bit as great as before, but also hitting this righteous mode that really takes the singer to incredible new territory! If you loved Janelle's previous records, don't worry – she's still as catchy and playful as ever – but there's also a depth and darkness that's inspired by recent political turns in America – which Monae also uses to address issues that go back much farther in her experience, woven together in songs that are maybe even more politically powerful because of the way that they'll also win over the mainstream! Stevie Wonder gets the very first thanks in the long notes at the end of the book – and the mix of soul and message here definitely hearkens back to Stevie in the 70s – is all Janelle's own. Heck, even guests like Zoe Kravitz, Brian Wilson, and Pharrell Williams can't get in the way – on titles that include "Screwed", "Django Jane", "I Got The Juice", "Stevie's Dream", "Don't Judge Me", "Crazy Classic Life", "Take A Byte", "Do Afraid", "Americans", "I Like That ", "Pynk", "Jane's Dream", and "Make Me Feel". And hey, you've gotta love a record that's inspired both by Vibranium and Stevie Wonder! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousCellarful Of Motown Vol 4 – The Rarest Detroit Grooves ... CD
Motown (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
An amazing return to form for this legendary collection – filled with never-heard numbers, pulled from the 60s and 70s vaults of Motown Records! Even if you think you've got plenty of Motown in your collection already, you'll find plenty more here to love – totally fresh tracks by some of the label's biggest artists, plus some other gems by lesser-known stars – all of which have all the punch, power, and sparkle of classic Motown at its best! The 2CD set is brimming over with greatness – and we're honestly stunned that they can still come up with so many unreleased gems, even after three previous volumes in the collection. Titles include "Kidnapped" by The Blackberries, "Keep On Tryin" by The Fantastic Four, "My Baby Moves Me" by Brenda Holloway, "Your Kiss Kiss" by Marvin Gaye & Oma Heard, "Miss Lonely Heart" by The Vandellas, "You Gave Me Love To Live For" by Debbie Dean, "Head Over Heels In Love With You Baby" by The Spinners, "I'd Cry" by Chuck Jackson, "Twin Brother" by Eddie Holland, "Daddy Cool" by Oma Heard, "Three Time Loser" by Marvin Gaye, "The Girl I've Chosen To Be My Bride" by Joe Stubbs, "A Bird In The Hand" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Somebody's Waiting For Me" by The Contours, "Only A Lonely Man Would Know" by Ivy Joe Hunter, "The House That Jack Built" by JJ Barnes, "The Philly Dog" by Earl Van Dyke, and "Why Don't You Come Home" by Stevie Wonder.

✨✧ LemuriaLemuria (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet bit of funk from Hawaii – and a legendary bit of free soul that's been winning global fame for decades! Lemuria is the brainchild of Kirk Thompson – who plays piano, bass, keyboards, and vibes on this very spiritual set of tracks. Master Henry Gibson was one of the executive producers, and he also plays conga on the set – which recalls some of the more spiritual collective funky projects from the early 70s Chicago scene, given a bit of a tropical twist. Many tracks feature vocals by "The Ladies Of Lemuria" – a lovely trio that's got a bit of an Emotions sort of sound – but the jazziness of the tracks is a lot freer than the backings the Emotions ever got, with more of a west coast Fantasy Records kind of approach, touched with some Stevie Wonder-like warmth. Really great all the way through – and impeccably put together, despite the indie origins of the record. Titles include "Get That Happy Feeling", "Hunk Of Heaven", "Dreams", "Mister U", "The Making Of You", and "Mystery Love". CD

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... Out Of Stock
The real sound of the old school, and the best beats from the streets – the kind of early underground hip hop tracks that still sound wonderful after all these years! These are tracks from the earliest years of the style – when funk was as much a part of the music as lyrics – and tracks were often surprisingly long, and spun out in the best sort of party mode – with an excellent focus on funky drum breaks and basslines, matched by lyrics from youthful crews and MCs that set the standard for countless artists to come! As with the first volume, the track selection here is wonderful – a mix of key classics from the Harlem and South Bronx scenes, plus some overlooked gems that are well-worth discovering – all wrapped up with the usual top-shelf attention to detail we've come to expect from Soul Jazz Records! The package features loads of great notes and photos – and titles include "Maximus Party" by TJ Swann & Pee Wee Mel, "Death Rap" by Margo's Kool Out Crew, "Lookin Good" by Eddie Cheba, "One Time Two Time Blow Your Mind" by MC Rock Lovely, "Let's Rock" by Harlem World Crew, "School Days" by Busy Bee, "Ah That's The Joint" by Kool DJ AJ, "Dancin Party People" by Little Skarsky, "Young Ladies" by Lonnie Love, "Rappin Partee Groove" by Rappers Rapp Group, "The People's Message Take Two" by Terry Lewis & Wild Flower, "Shake Your Body" by Manujothi, "Dr Ice Rap" by Zoot II, and "Rock The Message Rap" by Grand Master Chilly T & Stevie G.
