✨✧ TwinkYou Reached For The Stars – The Best Of Twink (purple vinyl pressing) ... LP
Sundazed, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A career-spanning look at the legendary Twink – the British psychedelic genius who was a key part of the Pretty Things and Pink Fairies, and an even more legendary artist on his own – continually creative over the decade, at a quality level that even has later tracks sounding every bit as fantastic as work on his classic album Think Pink! The collection was put together by Twink himself, and the later nuggets are a real revelation if you only know his earlier work – sounds that stayed true to that groundbreaking mix of psychedelic styles and more mindbending modes – all with a razor-sharp edge that's kept the music very relevant over the years – maybe more so than some of Twink's contemporaries! Titles include "Lydia Ladybird", "Brand New Morning", "Dead End", "Animal Man", "Ain't Got A Clue", "Ten Thousand Words In A Cardboard Box", "You Reached For The Stars", "The Sparrow As A Sign", "Fluid", and "Suicide".

✨✧ TwinkThink Pink (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Decca/Retroworld (UK), 1969. New Copy 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
A legendary album from the Brit psych scene at the end of the 60s – and one of the few records from that time that's still completely mindblowing all these many years later! Twink is John Alden, who'd had already had years of work behind him before putting together this set – including stints with Tomorrow and Pretty Things – and the direction here is very different than most of what was taking place at the time – much looser and more experimental, as the album seems to leap into very heady territory right from the start! There's no effort at putting out an easy single or crossover hit – and instead, some of these tunes have a sonic complexity that almost prefaces later more experimental work from the British scene, including the 80s industrial years – with one number that's just kind of a weird melange of voices, and another that's a lot of noise on drums, sitar, tablas, and effects – as well as a "pixie horn"! A few of the more vocal numbers – like the standout "Suicide" or "Three Little Piggies" – almost feel like work from Wicker Man – and other titles include "The Coming Of The One", "Ten Thousand Words In A Cardboard Box", "Fluid", "Dawn Of The Magic", "The Sparrow Is A Sign", and "Mexican Grass War". 2CD version features the full album in mono, then stereo – plus bonus tracks that include alternate versions of "Fluid", "Suicide", "10,000 Words In A Cardboard Box", "Dawn Of Magic", and "Rock An Roll The Joint".

Erykah BaduNew Amerykah Part One (4th World War) (purple vinyl pressing) ... LP
Motown, 2008. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $26.99 29.99 On December 9, 2022
Badu is back with some of the deepest, funkiest and best music of her career – a mindblowing treatise for a New Amerykah – and what we'll consider an instant classic whether the world at large catches on or not! Erykah steps up this time with a set that balances the wilder impulses of her criminally underappreciated Worldwide Underground and more of a hip hop based, righteously grooving style – but still bursts with a freshness that's unrivaled to say the least. From free spirited soul, to sparse hip hop funk this record is both blunt and beautiful – with a slow-building emotional resonance that'll reach the most jaded souls. Modern soul music of the first order that gives us goosebumps from the first spin to the last beat! The album kicks off with Erykah riffing on and remixing Ramp's "American Promise" as an intro – and it just gets deeper from there. Producers/collaborators include Madlib, Sa-Ra, Karriem Riggins, James Poyser and ?uestlove. Amazing!!! Titles include "The Healer", "Me", "My People", "Soldier", "The Cell", "Twinkle", "Master Teacher", "The Hump" and "Telephone". The 9th Wonder produced single "Honey" is an unlisted bonus track.

Keith BarrowKeith Barrow (Columbia) ... LP
Columbia, 1977. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Keith Barrow's first album of secular soul – a soaring set of vocals that really shows off his gospel roots! The record's produced by Bobby Eli with a bit of a Philly soul touch, but in ways that go quite past the conventional modes of the time – kind of offbeat at points, with a richness in sound that really matches Barrow's vocal range! Keith is one of those singers who's very confident in his style – working lines over and over, and driving a tune into a nice sort of frenzy – even at some mellow moments. We like these mellow moments best – as they have a great sort of focus – and titles include the underground groover "I Put The Twinkle In Your Eye", which has a hook you'll be singing for days, plus the cuts "A World Of Loney People", "Didn't You Know You'd Have to Cry Sometime", "Precious", "Mr Magic Man", and "Questions".

✨✧ ChasePure Music ... LP
Epic, 1974. Very Good+ ... $3.99
The third album from the mighty Chase – proof that the group was still going strong several years after their groundbreaking debut! The grooves here are almost tighter than before – a bit more complicated instrumentally, with some of the trumpets backed off a bit, to leave more room for great lines on guitar and keyboards – really stretching out over the propulsive groove of the rhythms. There's still some vocals on the record, but they seem a bit more on the backburner than on the group's earliest efforts – and titles include "Close Up Tight", "Twinkles", "Weird Song #1", "Run Back To Mama", and "Bochawa".

Earl KlughDream Come True/Crazy For You/Low Ride ... CD
United Artists/BGO (UK), 1980/1981/1983. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99 20.99
An Earl Klugh triple-header – three great albums in a single package! First up is Dream Come True – warm guitar magic from Earl – exactly the kind of record that helped cement his fame at the start of the 80s – making Klugh one of the leading guitarists of his time! The style's often a bit mellow, but never in a sleepy way – just a great extension of the mode that Earl first displayed on his debut – a way of doing more with less – leaving more than enough space between the notes to keep things soulful, and offering a nice contrast to some of the too-jamming fusion artists of his generation. There's often some sweet keyboards nestled in with the guitar – and Dave Matthews handled all the arrangements, so you can bet there's a tight, soulful feel to the whole record! Titles include "Spellbound", "Doc", "Amazon", "I Don't Want To Leave You Alone Anymore", and "Message To Michael". Crazy For You steps along with a smooth and soulful groove here – one that mixes Earl Klugh's own acoustic guitar with warm electric instrumentation, and some nice use of strings as well! Arrangements are by a few different folks who all help shape the sound of the set – Greg Phillinganes, Patrick Williams, Dave Matthews, and Johnny Mandel – all talents who know how to hit the right balance of soul and sophistication to work well with Klugh's guitar! Titles include "I'm Ready For Your Love", "Soft Stuff", "Broadway Ramble", "Calypso Getaway", "Crazy For You", and "Twinkle". Low Ride is one of Earl Klugh's tightest groovers of the 80s – a record that features plenty of great keyboards from Greg Phillinganes, who slides in perfectly alongside Earl's guitar! The set also features a bit of electric guitar from Paul Jackson – and there's an acoustic/electric balance here that's not unlike the albums of Rodney Franklin over at Columbia – although Klugh's got an arguably tighter, more R&B-influenced sound overall. There's a few light vocals at points – and titles include "Low Ride", "Back In Central Park", "Night Drive", "I Never Thought I'd Leave You", and "If You're Still In Love With Me". CD

VariousBirth Of Soul Vol 3 – More Seminal Early 60s Sides That Reflect Soul Music's Gospel, R&B & Vocal Group Roots ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
The third volume in one of the greatest series on Kent – a selection of tunes from the early days of soul music, when R&B had peaked, gospel was lending a bit of influence, doo wop was turning into group harmony, and the term "soul music" was just a twinkle in the eyes of a few critics and punters! The vintage for most of these tunes is 1960 to 1964 – and Kent have done a great job of pulling together tunes with deep roots in the styles of the past, but which have one ear firmly turned towards the future of 60s and 70s soul. There's a total of 28 tracks in all – and titles include "She Put The Hurt On Me" by Prince La La, "Shorty's Got To Go" by The Impressions, "The Rains Came" by Big Sambo, "Talk To Me" by Sunny & The Sunliners, "Just For You (Stone Fox)" by Billy Watkins, "You Can't Run Away From me" by The Wanderers, "Play It Again" by Pat Lundy, "Help Me" by The Diplomats, "Have Love, Will Travel" by Richard Berry, "The Teacher" by The Falcons, "I Wanna Thank You" by The Enchanters, "People In Love" by The Taylor Brothers, "Don't Stop The Wedding" by Ann Cole, and "Don't Feel Sorry For Me" by Jimmy Ruffin.

VariousSoul Togetherness Presents – Village Soul ... CD
Expansion (UK), Late 60s/1970s/1990s. Used ... $9.99
Forget the cover – because this is a great set of soul music! The album's a collection of older and newer soul tunes – all put together in the spirit of the legendary Soul Togetherness nights at The Norfolk Village night club in London. What does that mean to us Americans? Not much from the history books – but it does make for a great set of rare soul! The compilation's really really fresh – blending together deep soul, female soul, 70s mellow soul, and a few surprising entries from the 90s – all to make one of the freshest collections of tracks that we've heard in a long time. And yeah, the cover of an older British guy on the front doesn't do much to get us excited – but if you get past the artwork, the music's great. Titles include "Tell It Like It Is" by The Marriotts, "I Put The Twinkle In Your Eye" by Keith Barrow, "You Made A Believer Out Of Me" by Betty LaVette, "Sha La Bandit" by Delores Hall, "Stay With Me" by Rance Allen Group, "Do This World A Favor" by Beres Hammond, "Everybody's In A Hurry" by Ronnie McNeir, "Little Girl" by Corey Glover, "Where Is That Rainbow" by Dee Dee Warwick, "Simply Grateful" by Kim English, "Make Love Last Forever" by Karen Pree, "Where Is The Love" by MFOS, "Keep Trying" by Mildred Clark, "There's Not Too Many More" by Jo Armstead, "I Come Running Back" by Sandra Wright, and "I Have A Dream" by Beverlei Skeete.

✨✧ VariousStrange Breaks & Mr Thing 2 – More Rock, Funk, Soul, Jazz & Soundtrack Breaks For Modern Living ... CD
BBE (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
A fantastic funky follow-up to the first Mr Thing compilation from BBE – and a set that's equally filled with rare and soulful grooves! If we didn't know better, we'd swear he went into our crates and pilfered our own record collections – because the package contains plenty of overlooked cuts that we've loved for years, but which have never gotten their due – and not even all of them are from totally obscure pressings or small indie labels – just the kind of records that people pass over sometimes, because they don't know how great they sound! There's lots and lots and lots of deeply funky numbers on the collection – and the package really takes us back to the glory days when BBE compilations were always turning us onto something new – especially during the Keb Darge glory days. 2CD set features one mixed disc, one unmixed – with titles that include "Back Ground Music" by Kalyanji Anandji, "Searching For Soul" by Jake Wade & The Soul Searchers, "ABC" by Hot Butter & Soul, "Spooky Do" by Dick Walter, "The Horse" by Val Merral's Orchestra, "It's Just Begun" by Hot City Bump Band, "Sally" by Frank Pleyer Big Band, "Love Is Just A Word" by Johnny Griffith Inc, "Can't Stop Talkin" by Art & Ron, "Family Affair" by The Generation Gap, "Gacek" by Jerzy Milian, "Rockin Chair" by John L Watson with White Mouse, "Pink Panther" by Alan Tew, "Twinkle Stars Boo Galoo (live)" by Oscar Harris & The Twinkle Stars, "The Message" by Tinga Stewart, and "Pru Urebu" by The Rias Orchestra.

✨✧ Susumu YokotaSymbol ... LP
Skintone/P-Vine (Japan), 2005. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A beautiful bit of ambient work from Susumu Yokota – a set that seems to continue some of the spirit of the Japanese minimal scene of the 80s, but with some instrumentation and production that's a bit more contemporary – especially in the "crispy" way that some of the rhythms and samples come into the mix! Where some of Susumu's predecessors were pioneers in music like this, it's almost as if Yokota is here trying to bring forward all the other global elements that had been influenced by earlier Japanese electronic music – but took things into all their own directions – directions that are embraced here with a real sense of beauty and balance! Titles include "Song Of The Sleeping Forest", "Purple Rose Minuet", "Blue Sky & Yellow Sunflower", "Capriccio & The Innovative Composer", "Fairy Dance Of Twinkle & Shadow", and "Traveler In The Wonderland".

✨✧ Joe SimonNine Pound Steel – The Best Of Joe Simon (3CD set) ... CD
Sound Stage 7/Sunset Blvd, Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A really great overview of the early years of deep soul singer Joe Simon – a massive 3CD set that brings together more of his work for the Sound Stage 7 label than we've seen in any other package! Joe doesn't always get his due, but back in the late 60s stretch when he recorded these tracks, he was a crucial figure in American soul – maybe a bit like Joe Tex, in that he came from deeper southern roots, but was able to bring a new sophistication to the music too – effortlessly handling funk, deep soul, sophisticated tracks, and even a bit of country soul too – all of which you'll hear in this well-done set! The 3CD collection features 61 titles that Simon recorded for the Sound State 7 label in Tennessee, including a number of singles-only cuts – titles that include "The Girl's Alright With Me", "Moon Walk (parts 1 & 2)", "I Got A Whole Lot Of Lovin", "Silver Spoons & Coffee Cups", "San Francisco Is A Lonely Town", "In The Ghetto", "Time & Space", "Wounded Man", "Come On & Get It", "In The Same Old Way", "Can't Find No Happiness", "Twinkle", "Dreamin", "Standing In The Safety Zone", "Looking Back", "In Reach Of Your Arms", "I'm Too Far Gone To Turn Around", "The Chokin Kind", "San Francisco Is A Lonely Town", "Rainbow Road", and lots lots more.
