Bo Donaldson & The Heywoods70s Classic Hits ... CD
Sunset Blvd, 2019. New Copy ... $9.99 10.99
As you can guess by their image on the cover, Bo Donaldson & The Heywoods were hardly the stuff of cutting-edge rock in the 70s – but they certainly made for some great pop classics during the glory days of AM Radio! The cover photo is old, but this set is actually new – a reformed version of the group, working in a surprisingly faithful studio setting – to recapture the pristine pop glory of their hits, and some other classics from the 70s! In fact, if we hadn't dipped into the notes, we'd be tempted to say that all the work here is vintage – which is our tip of the hat to the production team behind the record – who really do a great job with tunes that include "Billy Don't Be A Hero", "Sad Eyes", "Who Do You Think You Are", "Sky High", "Hooked On A Feeling", "Wildflower", "Hello It's Me", and "Saturday Night".

Lee DorseyNight People – The Best Of Lee Dorsey (3CD set) ... CD
Sunset Blvd, 1960s/1970s. New Copy 3CD ... $28.99 29.99
The biggest collection of work we've ever seen from Lee Dorsey – a set that starts with his early Fire/Fury singles at the start of the 60s, then moves through his big recordings for Sansu and other labels that helped establish the New Orleans soul style of the late 60s – then even includes great later work for Polydor, Spring, and ABC – plus some unreleased tracks too! Lee Dorsey is one of the key figures who put the funk in New Orleans Funk – and most of the music here features the production talents of Allen Toussaint and Marshall Seehorn – two Crescent City talents who could always come up with the funk, but who really found their muse in Dorsey's vocals! The 3CD package features 66 tracks in all – and titles include "A Place Where We Can Be Free", "Yes We Can Can", "Freedom For The Stallion", "Sneakin Sally Through The Alley", "Night People", "Soul Mine", "Thank You", "Babe", "Draining", "Lonelyology", "I Gotta Find A New Love", "Ride Your Pony (live)", "Chin Chin", "Behind The 8 Ball", "Ya Ya", "You're Breaking Me Up", "Mess Around", "People Sure Act Funny", "O Me O My O", "Riverboat", "My Old Car Commercial", "What Am I Loving For", "Who's Gonna Help Brother Get Further", "As Quiet As It's Kept", "Hoodlum Joe", "When I Met My Baby", and "Ixie Dixie Pixie Pie".

Four TopsFour For The Road ... CD
Sunset Blvd, 1996/2019. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
The original and most legendary line-up of the Four Tops – Levi Stubbs, Abdul "Duke" Fakir, Renaldo "Obie" Benson and Lawrence Payton – reunited for a triumphant anniversary show at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas! Levi Stubbs is his impassioned soulful self out front and the harmonies are endearing and heartfelt in a way that really makes us wish we were in the room – and if the live recording lacks the manicured grandeur of the monumental Motown classic versions, it has energy and experience to spare. Includes "MacArhur Park", "Shake Me, Wake Me", "Baby I Need Your Loving", "Ain't No Woman (Like The One I Got)", "Bernadette", "Walk Away Renee", "Reach Out I''l Be There", "Standing In The Shadows of Love", "Reach Out To Me", "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)", and nod to thier influencees with "(I Can't Get No)Satisfaction" and "Jumpin Jack Flash".

King CurtisSoul Of King Curtis ... CD
Enjoy/Sunset Blvd, Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.99
Searing sax instrumentals from the great King Curtis – plus a lot more too – as this package not only brings together the King's records as a leader for Enjoy Records, but also digs up lots of performances as a sideman for that famous Harlem record label too! The grooves here are raw and ready, nice and tight, and done with a nitty gritty style that might have been funk if the cuts were recorded a few years later – but which definitely had a bit influence on countless soul instrumental modes to come, both in the rhythms and in King's wicked lead work on saxophone! The package features some of the best instrumental singles that Curtis cut for Enjoy Records, from his Soul Twist album and other singles – and CD2 also features material that Curtis cut for Enjoy as a soloist on records for other artists! CD1 features 18 tracks that include "Soul Twist", "Twisting Time", "The Monkey Shout", "Hot Potato", "Midnight Blue", "Wobble Twist", "What'd I Say (parts 1 & 2)", and "Big Dipper". CD2 features tracks that include "Our Love Will Never End" by The Avons, "I'm Gonna Catch You" by Curtis Carrington, "Madisonville USA (parts 1 & 2)" by The Strolls, "Juicy Fruit" by Rudy Greene, "Fine Little Girl" by The Arcades, "Ice Cream Baby" by The Pearls, "Air Raid" by Curley Hammer, "Mama Don't Allow" by Tyron Rowe, and "Korea Korea" by Bob Kent.

Allen Toussaint & OthersArtist Producer Songwriter ... CD
Sansu/Sunset Blvd, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A tremendous tribute to the genius of Allen Toussaint – the man who almost single-handedly shaped the sound of New Orleans soul in the 60s! As the title implies, Toussaint is featured here as an artist, producer, and songwriter – and most tracks were issued on his Sansu Records label, and recorded in his Sea Saint studios – a spot that was as important to New Orleans as Chess was to Chicago, and Stax was to Memphis! The singers vary here, but the songs and instrumentation have a very unified vibe – plenty of Nola funk at the bottom, and some killer lyrics that often have a lot of sharpness and wit. Tracks include "So Good" by Ernie K Doe, "Sneakin Sally From The Alley" by Lee Dorsey, "Hercules" by Aaron Neville, "Gone Gone Gone" by Eldridge Holmes, "Don't Pity Me" by Curly Moore, "Bad Luck" by Betty Harris, "All I Want Is You" by Zilla Mayes, "Wheel Of Fire" by Etta Jones, "If You Love Her" by Benny Spellman, "Omar Khayyam" by The Rubiyats, "Here Come The Girls" by Ernie K Doe, "How To Pick A Winner" by Maurice Williams, "Star Revue" by Warren Lee, "Greatest Love" by Willie West, "The Book" by Eldridge Holmes, "Wait A Minute Baby" by Diamond Joe, and "We Are The People" and "Working In A Coal Mine" by Toussaint himself.

✨✧ Sister Rosetta TharpeShout Sister Shout ... CD
Sunset Blvd, Late 40s/Late 50s/1960s. New Copy 2CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic overview of the later genius of Sister Rosetta Tharpe – a key figure in the development of rock, soul, and a number of other styles from that key midcentury moment in American music! Tharpe's a singer with a voice that influenced Aretha Franklin and other female soul artists – and a guitarist with a fast-riffing style that was born in gospel, but had a huge influence on rock and roll – as you'll hear here in a really well-chosen batch of cuts from the second half of her career! The package features two titles from 40s radio broadcasts, but all the rest of the material is from the years 1957 to 1971 – half with Rosetta in front of a larger ensemble, half with just the singer and her guitar. There's a bit less in the way of notes than we'd like, but it appears that much of the solo material is from her live set of 1970 – leaving a mix of other material along the group side of the collection. 30 tracks in all – with titles that include "Can't No Grave Hold My Body Down", "Mansions In The Sky", "Didn't It Rain", "Rock Daniel", "Shout Sister Shout", "This Train", "Precious Moment", "Up Above My Head I Hear Music", "Peace In The Valley", "Is Everyone Happy", and "Vacation In The Sky".

✨✧ Aaron NevilleLove Letters – The Allen Toussaint Sessions ... CD
Sunset Blvd, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Aaron Neville's made many great records over the years – but to some of us, he never sounded better than on these early sides with legendary producer Allen Toussaint – a studio genius who really helped set Neville in just the right sort of space! Lots of these tracks are mellow, but have a nice undercurrent of funk – a solid punch at the bottom that works beautifully alongside the classic flow of Neville's singing – in ways that keep things from ever getting as soppy as in later years, and which really pushes that legendary vocal approach with just the right sort of vibe. The mix of music here runs from 60s soul to some great 70s numbers too – and titles include the classic break track "Hercules", plus "You Can Give But You Can't Take", "Been So Wrong", "She's On My Mind", "You Don't Love Me Anymore", "Speak To Me", "Struttin On Sunday", "Love Letters", "Cry Me A River", "Wild Flower", and "Tell It Like It Is". 20 tracks in all!

Isley Jasper IsleyBroadway's Closer Than Sunset (with bonus track) ... CD
Iconoclassic/CBS, 1984. Used ... $8.99
The first breakaway effort from the trio of Ernie Isley, Chris Jasper, and Marvin Isley – a set that's got an even leaner groove than some of the Isley Brothers material from years before! The group really hit their stride right away – stepping out in a sweet array of funky rhythms that have some definite 80s touches on the beats, yet which still share all the best Isleys elements overall! Guitar parts are especially sharp – that carved in soul sound that showed up in most Isleys projects from the early 70s onwards – and the vocals have a great sense of warmth and soul, especially on the mellower tunes in the set, which turn down some of the more hook-heavy rhythms heard on other tracks. Titles include "Serve You Right", "Sex Drive", "Love Is Gonna Last Forever", "Kiss & Tell", "I Can't Get Over Losin You", "Look The Other Way", "Break This Chain", and "Broadway's Closer Than Sunset Blvd". CD also features the bonus track "Kiss & Tell (long version)". CD
