✨✧ SylvesterStars ... LP
Fantasy, 1979. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sylvester's definitely heading for the sound he would embrace more in the 80s – working here with more electronic-driven rhythms, in a stretched-out clubby mode that's more in keeping with the style of Giorgio Moroder than his earlier work for Fantasy. Given his great vocals, though, Syl really makes things sound wonderful – especially on his surprisingly great remake of "I Who Have Nothing", which is done here as an uptempo disco groover. Other tracks include "Body Strong", "Stars", and "I Need Somebody To Love Tonight". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the heavy inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)

Patrick CowleyAfternooners ... LP
Dark Entries, Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $20.99
The continuing lost legacy of Patrick Cowley – the San Francisco 80s club maestro who made some famous records with Sylvester – but who also did a huge amount of underground sounds for porno films at the time! This set digs deep into that legacy – by featuring music that Cowley did for the 1982 film Afternooners, as well as a few other tracks from the time – material that's a great 80s extrapolation of the sorts of slinky funk you'd know from 70s porn! The sounds here are heavy on beats and keyboards – a much more slowed-down take on territory that Cowley explored on his club singles of the period – and the basslines are plenty heavy, and very seductive – as you might imagine, given the images they were used with on the screen. We should tell you that the package does include a few nude images inside – so be warned if you're offended by that sort of thing. Titles include "Love Come Set Me Free", "Big Shot", "Surfside Sex", "Hot Beach", "The Runner", "One Hot Afternoon", "Leather Bound", and "Bore & Stroke". LP, Vinyl record album

Patrick CowleySchool Daze ... LP
Dark Entries, 1981. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $21.99
Rare work from Patrick Cowley – an artist who most folks know for music with Sylvester in the 80s, but heard here on a selection of tracks he did for porno films at the same time! The music has lots of the sweet electro touches of Cowley's singles for the clubs – post-disco funk, and instrumentation that's almost all electric, but handled with a warmly soulful vibe – beats layered over basslines over beats – served up here in a mix of uptempo modes and mellower moments, which must have been crafted to fit the different sexy scenes in the films! The music here comes from to films – School Daze and Muscle Up – and titles include "Seven Sacred Pools", "Muscle Up", "Zygote", "Mocking Bird Dream", "Tides Of Man", and "Primordial Landscape". LP, Vinyl record album
(Note: Package interior does contain some x-rated images from the films – so be warned!)

Herbie HancockMagic Windows ... CD
Columbia (France), 1981. Used ... $9.99
A great little soul album from Herbie Hancock – but one that's often lost in the valleys between his bigger hits of the time! The record was cut in the space right before Herbie's big "Rockit" success – and it's a sweet bit of funky fusion that has a good dose of R&B in the mix – similar to other records from Hancock's Columbia label keyboardist contemporaries – like Rodney Franklin, Webster Lewis, or Charles Earland! All orchestrations are performed by Herbie on a host of keyboards and synthesizers, and just about every cut has vocals – from singers who include Sylvester, Gavin Christopher, and The Waters. But even with this soul component, Herbie still keeps things jazzy – using a good bit of keyboards to open up the tunes in the middle, and hitting hard on all numbers with that classic Hancock approach to funk! Titles include "Magic Number", "Tonight's The Night", "Everybody's Broke", "Help Yourself", and "Satisfied With Love". CD
(Out of print EU digipack pressing.)

✨✧ Enid MosierNo Cover, No Minimum ... LP
Decca, Late 50s. Very Good ... $14.99
Obscure set of vocal jazz tracks featuring the lost Enid Mosier (of whom we know nothing). Good stuff, though, and like a lot of the best Decca vocal LPs of the time, this one has a good mix of material, and excellent recording quality. The set includes a number of obscure tracks, like "Darts!", "Sylvester", "He Never Looks My Way", and "Kiss Me Cross-Eyed", and the accompaniment is fairly spare. LP, Vinyl record album

Sly5thAveInvisible Man – An Orchestral Tribute To Dr Dre ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $9.99 11.99
An orchestral homage to Dr Dre spearheaded by Brooklyn's Sylvester Onyejiaka, aka Sly5thAve – fleshing out hooks and melodies from throughout Dre's career, from classic singles to deep cuts, into large scale jazzy soul – with a stellar roster of guests including Mark De Clive-Lowe, DJ Center, Quantic, Jimetta Rose and more! It's pretty diverse, capturing timeless Cali funk & soul backdrops as well as slightly more stripped down live band hip hop-style versions, and mostly, but not entirely instrumentals. One exception is "Let Me Ride" with singer Jimetta Rose, who delivers some great, spontaneously emotional vocals – but the whole set is excellent – and titles includes "Shiznit" with Jessie Fisher, "California", "Drelude For Woo" feat Mark De Clive-Lowe, "No Diggity" feat Sydney Driver, "The Jam" feat Matthias Loescher, "Who Am I" feat Paul Wilson, "Still Dre", "My Name Is" feat Robert Searight, "Guilty Conscience", "Nuthin' But A G Thang" feat Brad Allen Williams, "The Edge" feat Quantic, "Next Episode", "Peace" and more.

Steven & SterlingOne Magic Night ... CD
RCA/PTG (Netherlands), 1982. New Copy ... $11.99
A groovy little gem from early 80s RCA – a set that sparkles with the same sort of energy as the label's work with Keni Burke at the time! Steven & Sterling are a hip duo who trade vocals back and forth nicely – working over rhythms that are mellow and midtempo, often with a hip undercurrent of jazz as well! The pair worked together previously in the trio Living Proof – but really come into their own here as a duo – with a mature sound that's even better than before. The players are a big factor in the album's sound – and they include Reggie Burke on keyboards, Paul Jackson Jr on guitar, Ollie E Brown on drums – all working with arrangements handled by Sylvester Rivers and the album's producer Tito Jackson – who's surprisingly sharp at the helm of the whole thing. The balance here is great – smooth, but never sleepy – and the record stays away from some of the more chart-friendly modes of the time. Titles include "One Magical Night", "Fragile", "Don't Stop", "Just One Step", "Dead Giveaway", and "Tomorrow". CD

VariousBirth Of Soul – Los Angeles Special ... CD
Ace/Kent (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
Rare work from the early years of soul music – and a special set that focuses on sounds created in and around Los Angeles – a city that's not nearly as well known for 60s soul as Chicago, Detroit, or New Orleans! Yet during the postwar years, LA had just as much going on as those eastern cities – a huge new population influx, who'd move over from the south during the wartime years – and new labels that had cropped up to capture their sounds and serve their audience! 50s LA was already humming with R&B material, which gave the rising styles of soul plenty of places to get recorded – so much so, that there's even some work on this set that was never issued at the time! The vibe is great – similar to other Birth Of Soul sets from Ace/Kent – in that the music carries a bit of R&B and blues bite from earlier years, mixed with more romping and tighter soul styles – in a smoking set list of 24 tracks that include "But What About My Broken Heart" by Don Wyatt, "Everybody's Got A Lover But Me" by Richard Berry, "Have You Heard" by The Vows, "With These Hands" by The Wonders, "You Better Watch Out Girl" by The Imperialites, "Lose My Cool" by Ike & Tina Turner, "Let Him Walk Away" by Darlene Love, "My Pillow" by The Numbers, "Help Me With My Broken Heart" by Sylvester Stewart, "That Other Guy" by The Mandarins, "Don't Drop It" by The Question Marks, and "Young Lover" by Wilks & Wilkerson.

✨✧ Sly & The Family StoneWho In The Funk Do You Think You Are – The Warner Bros Recordings ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1979/1982. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The complete Warner Brothers recordings of Sly Stone – and a much-needed look at an oft-ignored side of his career! The set features the full tracks from the albums Back On The Right Track and Ain't But The One Way – as well as 5 previously unissued demos, which have a rough and ready feel that almost makes them the best of the bunch! The work on the albums is surprisingly great – not classic early Sly, but with this warmly compressed groove that extends his sound nicely – and which has a really great mainstream funk appeal. Sly's using the studio as an instrument more than ever before – getting some great sounds out of the way he brings the vocals, drums, and guitars all together in the mix – and reinventing himself a bit, without losing his groove. Titles include "The Same Thing (Makes You Laugh, Makes You Cry)", "Shine It On", "It Takes All Kinds", "Who's To Say", "Sheer Energy", "LOVINU", "One Way", "High, Y'All", "Ha Ha Hee Hee", "You Really Got Me", "Sylvester", "You're The One (inst demo)", "In Other Words (demo)", "Hand Of Love (demo)", and "Get Back (backing track takes 2 & 3)".

✨✧ James WilliamsFlying Colors ... CD
Zim/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early date from pianist James Williams – one that has him opening up in a very hip, soulful 70s mode – on both acoustic and electric piano! If you only know Williams from later years, when his phrasing became a bit more "classic", you'll really be surprised at the open flow of this set – as it's a whole group effort, with really wonderful work from Bill Easley on alto and flute, Bill Pierce on soprano and tenor, and Slide Hampton on trombone! Rhythm is from James Baker on drums, and Sylvester Sample on electric bass – the latter of which adds a nice current of warmth – and titles include "Stretching", "Soulful Bill", "Flying Colors", and "1977 AD". CD
(Part of the "Jazz Premium Seats – Rare Jazz – Live & Sessions" series!)

✨✧ Silver ConventionSave Me ... LP
Midland, 1975. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A huge breakout moment for disco in the 70s – the first album from Silver Convention, a very early example of the European power on the club scene! The group's the brainchild of arranger Sylvester Levay and producer Michael Kunze – who come up with some great German disco rhythms for the record, mixed with soaring female trio vocals, by a group that includes two German gals and American soul singer Roberta Kelly! The vocal approach is similar to that 70s Philly group mode – popularized by First Choice, Three Degrees, and others – and pumped it up with the Munich sound of throbbing bass and heavy beats, which was arguably one of the first steps towards house music in the 80s. Titles include the huge hit "Fly Robin Fly", plus "Save Me", "I Like It", "Chains Of Love", "Tiger Baby", "Always Another Girl", and "Heart Of Stone". LP, Vinyl record album

Universal (Netherlands), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
They got the "sizzlers" in the title right – and the set actually goes past just disco – as it brings together a nice range of upbeat and groovy tunes from the 70s – with a few surprises along the way! Titles include "Boogie Nights" by Heatwave, "Soul Makossa" by Manu Dibango, "Car Wash" by Rose Royce, "Adventures In Paradise" by Minnie Riperton, "Love's Theme" by Love Unlimited Orchestra, "You Make Me Feel Mighty Real" by Sylvester, "Fire" by Ohio Players, "Get Up Offa That Thing" by James Brown, "Let's Start The Dance" by Bohannon, "Love Hangover" by Diana Ross, "Don't Leave Me This Way" by Thelma Houston, "I Need A Man" by Grace Jones, "Can You Feel The Force" by The Real Thing, "Casanova" by Coffee, and "Got To Give It Up" by Marvin Gaye.

Cotillion/Wounded Bird, 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
