Heaven 17Play To Win – The Virgin Years (Penthouse & Pavement/Luxury Gap/How Men Are/Pleasure One/Teddy Bear Duke & Psycho/mixes/demos/bonus tracks) (10CD set) ... CD
Virgin, 1980s. New Copy 10CD set ... $109.99 124.99
An insanely huge tribute to the genius of Heaven 17 – a group who never broke that big on these shores, but who were one of the hipper British electro pop acts at the start of the 80s! The group broke off from Human League right during their earlier, noisier years – then headed into territory that was a lot more overtly political, especially on their earlier releases – while still finding a way to play strongly on the clubs! These guys were maybe some of the first to bring Marxist ideals to the dancefloor – a trend that would continue in the UK strongly for the rest of the decade – but they're also tremendous pop producers too, and worked simultaneously as BEF (British Electric Foundation) to craft some excellent work with other artists. This huge 10CD package brings together just about everything the group did together – all five of their albums – Penthouse & Pavement, Luxury Gap, How Men Are, Pleasure One, and Teddy Bear Duke & Psycho – plus a full CD of 22 demo tracks from 1980, four more CDs of dance/single mixes that really helped spread the group's message, and lots more bonus tracks that include unusual a-sides and b-sides too – plenty of non-LP tracks to really round things out. The package is a big 12" by 12" – and features 157 tracks in all, plus a big booklet of notes! CD

✨✧ Lalah HathawayIt's Somethin – The Virgin Years (Lalah Hathaway/A Moment/bonus tracks) ... CD
Virgin (UK), Early 90s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pair of wonderful albums from the young Lalah Hathaway – plus bonus tracks too! First up is the self-titled Lalah Hathaway – the first album from Donny Hathaway's soulful daughter – an album that began a legacy that's lasted plenty strongly on its own – even without such a great family pedigree! Lalah's got a nearly-classic style in her work that's a fresh departure from many other soul acts of this period – a style that's almost influenced by the Soul II Soul or Loose Ends groove of the time, but is a bit more mainstream – and which shows that Hathaway has a lot more to offer than a famous last name. Production and arrangements are by Gary Taylor, Angela Winbush, Craig T Cooper, and Andre Fischer – and titles include "Baby Don't Cry", "Heaven Knows", "Somethin", "Stay Home Tonight", "I'm Coming Back", "I Gotta Move On", and "Obvious". Next is A Moment – an overlooked second set from the lovely Lalah Hathaway – a record that got less circulation than her classic debut, but which still very much continues the groove! As before, Lalah's working with a number of different producers throughout – changing things up a bit, but still holding strong with a quality level that's better than most of her contemporaries – thanks to vocals that are there first, and hardly need any studio help at all – and which really unify the proceedings throughout. Titles include a great remake of "Family Affair" with excellent help from BEF – plus "Bad By Myself", "Lean On Me", "Separate Ways", "Better As A Memory", "Do You Suppose", "Rise", and "Let Me Love You". 2CD set features 12 bonus tracks – including "It's Somethin (radio mix)", "Heaven Knows (7" version)", "Baby Don't Cry (radio)", "Heaven Knows (Yvonne Turner rmx)", "It's Somethin (12" mix)", "Baby Don't Cry (crybaby club version)", "It's Somethin (smoove & sassy rmx)", "Night & Day", "Let Me Love You (bed time mix)", "Dreams Don't Lie (club)", "Separate Ways (stringapella)", and "Night & Day (acappella)".

D'AngeloVoodoo ... CD
Virgin, 2000. Used ... $3.99
Sweet and gritty soul from D'Angelo – who takes a huge step into deeper territory on Voodoo – and it's one of the most monumental records of its time! On one level, Voodoo works as a nicely stripped-down session with a very classic soul feel. Gone are the overzealous flourishes that sometimes overwhelmed his earlier songs, and in their place are some sweetly crafted vocal parts with a classic Marvin Gaye/Al Green feel. That warmth is probably what made Voodoo a massive popular success – but what makes it such a creative triumph are the darker undercurrents – hinting at a troubled soul struggling for spiritual truth. One of the rare cases in popular music when great art became music for the masses! Titles include "Left & Right (feat Method Man & Redman)", "The Line", "Spanish Joint", "Africa", "Feel Like Makin Love", "The Root", "Playa Playa", "Devil's Pie", and "Greatdayndamornin/Booty". CD

DweleSubject ... CD
Virgin, 2003. Used ... $2.99
A sparkling debut from Detroit's Dwele – a sweet vocalist in the Donny Hathaway tradition, but with a tight, beat heavy soul sound that glides between 70s soul jazz, mellowed-out Jay Dee synth hop groove, and the natural soul vibe ?uestlove brings to his productions! We first caught wind of Dwele on Slum Village's "Tainted" single, and that's a good indication of the sound you'll find on the debut. Mellow, trippy keys and sound washes drench the album from beginning-to-end, with Dwele's often deeply layered vocals weighing the bright, modern groove aspects of the sound with a rich sense of soul history. There's a slight 70s soul jazz vibe, too, in spots – a sophisticated studio groove with bright bass and some sunny, soulfully strummed electric guitar. Dwele finds some truly nice middle ground between the natural soul scene, modern groove, and the mellower beats and grooves of the best Detroit hip hop of recent years – a scene that Dwele indeed was a player in before finding his soul muse. Great stuff – similar enough to some of his contemporaries – but still wholly unique in Dwele's embrace of a bright, sunny, polished sound that still manages to maintain naturally soulful grit and grease! The title track is a classic – crackly, thumping beats, sweetly chiming keys, and capital M Moody vocals – and many others are nearly as strong! Includes "Truth", "Find A Way", "Day At A Time", "Subject", "Sho Ya Right", "Possible", "Money Don't Mean A Thing", the bonus track "Let Your Hair Down", and more. 15 in all on the CD. CD

Brian Eno at the crux of his career – hanging perfectly between the guitar-heavy glam of earlier years, and the spacey electronics of later material – both of which he presents wonderfully on the record! The album is one of his last to feature real rock songs, with the kind of vocals you'd know from Eno's first two albums – and it mixes straighter styles with more complex electronic soundscapes, resulting in some wonderfully cold and abstract material that prefaces musical territory that many other artists wouldn't hit until the following decade! Titles include "Golden Hours", "The Big Ship", "St Elmos Fire", "Sky Saw", "Spirits Drifting", and "Becalmed". CD

✨✧ Brian EnoBefore & After Science ... CD
Virgin, 1977. Used ... $5.99
The final album in Brian Eno's initial burst of genius in the 70s – and the last of those records to feature real rock songs, with vocals and lyrics! Eno steps off even further here from the territory he first explored on Another Green World – referencing some of his more private sonic experiments, but also still keeping things in a relatively tuneful mode – yet also somewhat personal, too – maybe a bit like Robert Wyatt at his early solo best. The record features contributions from some of his hipper contemporaries – Phil Manzanera and Robert Fripp on guitars, Fred Frith on "cascade guitars", Jaki Liebezeit and Phil Collins on drums (back when Phil was still hip!) – and more familiar musical partners Percy Jones on bass and Rhett Davies as the engineer. The whole album's brilliantly laid out – from fierceness to ambience, and back again – on titles that include "No One Receiving", "Kurt's Rejoinder", "King Lead Hat", "Spider & I", "Engery Fools The Magician", "Backwater", and "Here He Comes".

Brian EnoDiscreet Music (original recording remastered) ... CD
Virgin/Astralwerks, 1975. Used ... $8.99
A modern minimalist watershed – and maybe one of the first indications that Brian Eno was moving onto higher ideas in his music! The album's an important release on the Obscure series from Island Records – a special imprint that was curated by Eno, as a way of giving showcase to new ideas in British music that were neither free jazz, punk, prog, or any of the styles that were getting more play on the bigger labels! Instead, Eno and Obscure was to the British avant composition world what Lovely or CRI were to the US – although maybe had the bigger role of some of the Columbia Records releases by Philip Glass, Steve Reich, and Terry Riley. The album features the beautiful title piece – "Discreet Music", a long work that relies on a simple system of delay and recall, with slight variations occurring over the space of time, due to slight occasional interference from the composer. Side two features "Three Variations On The Cannon In D Major By Johann Pachelbel" – a great reworking of the baroque music classic – which works along similar lines, taking this very familiar classical theme, and breaking it down into simple components, which are then interwoven and played in repetition, creating a strange little bit of romantic minimalism. That second piece is performed by the Cockpit Ensemble, conducted by Gavin Bryars – who also got some great early releases on the Obscure label too! CD

Gil Evans, Jerry Dammers, & OthersAbsolute Beginners ... LP
Virgin/EMI, 1986. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A great snapshot of jazzy London in the years before the acid jazz explosion of the late 80s – and a surprisingly great soundtrack that's stood the test of time much more than the actual film! The music here represents a jazz-based undercurrent of the London scene that was already turning its ears back in time – to a pre-mod era of the late 50s, which is the setting for Colin McInnes original novel used for the film – portrayed here in a pastiche of vocal and instrumental songs that often have a fair bit of classic touches! Gil Evans was brought in for most of the instrumentals, and turns out some really sparkling charts that have all the charm of his best work of the 50s – and other contemporary artists do a pretty great job themselves – at least on the more jazz-based numbers. Evans numbers include "Va Va Voom" – and the better jazzy tunes includes the excellent "Killer Blow" by Sade, plus "Have You Ever Had It Blue" by The Style Council, "That's Motivation" and "Absolute Beginners" by David Bowie, "Rodrigo Bay" by Working Week, "Selling Out" by Slim Gallard, and "Riot City" by Jerry Dammers.

Ricky FanteIntroducing Ricky Fante EP ... CD
Virgin, 2003. Used ... $0.99
The debut of a new classic soul star – the amazing Ricky Fante, a young singer with a sound that takes us back to the 70s work of Al Green and Joe Tex! Fante's got a pure, honest style of soul vocals – one that's backed here by arrangements that invoke the deep soul of Memphis and Muscle Shoals in the 60s – with well-placed horn parts, and burning organ and guitar in the rhythm section. Ricky's vocals are enough to carry the album alone, though – steeped in years of tradition, and going back to a soul sound that few can ever reach these days – and somehow managing to carry off the whole thing without sounding hokey, phony, or flat! 4 tracks in all – "It Ain't Easy", "It's Over Now", "Smile", and "I Let You Go" – all great!

Heaven 17 soften up their politics a bit with this second album (yet still address class inequality issues with the title!) – but they also manage to replace their Marxist agenda with some groovier, more soul-based tunes – just the kind of material that helped push them out of import obscurity into more of a crossover market in the US! The album's fondly remembered for the electro dancefloor numbers "Temptation", "Come Live With Me", and "Let Me Go" – all of which stand a cut above the work of their predecessors Human League, and show an ability to go past simple electronic pop riffs – even if they are all pretty darn catchy! Other tracks are great too – and the record has a joyous, optimistic quality that's every bit the best side of this scene from the early 80s generation. Titles include "We Live So Fast", "Best Kept Secret", "Crushed By The Wheels Of Industry", and "Key To The World". LP, Vinyl record album

And although the record is a bit of a departure from the group's noisier first few albums, it's also still got a dark edge that we'd kind of missed the first time around. Includes a nice remake of the theme from "Get Carter", plus loads of little great synth tunes like "I Am The Law", "Seconds", "The Sound Of The Crowd", and "Darkness" – as well as the hits "Love Action", "Don't You Want Me", and "The Things That Dreams Are Made Of".

Do these guys ever lose their touch? We think not – as this album, the group's umpteenth, is pretty darn great! Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick pulled out all the stops on this set – working with a range of vocalists that includes Joy Rose, Kelli Sae, Tony Momrelle, Joy Malcolm, and Brazilian soul legend Ed Motta! The range of voices on the set really gives it a lot of depth – moving past the easy jazz funk moments of earlier sets, and going for an all-solid, all-soulful approach that really blows our mind! Great stuff all the way through – maybe their best album in years – and a record you'll be playing into the next decade. Titles include "Morning Sun", "Who Needs Love", "Stone Cold Heart", "Where Love Shines", "Blue", "Fly", "If You Want My Love", and "Cada Dia".

Massive AttackMezzanine (2CD deluxe edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Virgin, 1998. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.99
A heavier, darker prime era set from Massive Attack – and rightly remembered as a classic! The grooves are still really strong, but the trip hop pioneers are delving more deeply into a bass heavy dub trip with a deep, rumbling bottom running throughout the tracks and some distorted guitar and reverb drenched key and sample bits punctuating the cuts and moody vocals. Stunningly strong to this day – which is no mean feat given the rapid musical evolutions of the 90s onward! Includes "Angel", "Risingson", "Teardrop" (which features vocals by Cocteau Twin Elizabeth Fraser), "Inertia Creeps", "Exchange", "Dissolved Girl", "Man Next Door", "Black Milk", "Mezzanine" and "Group Four". 2CD set features a 20th Anniversary mix of the record – and a bonus CD with a Mezzanine Mad Professor selection of mixes – all handled by Mad Professor, with titles that include "Metal Banshee (Mad Professor mix one)", "Teardrop (Mazaruni dub one)", "Group Four (security forces dub)", "Wire (leaping dub)", "Inertia Creeps (floating on dubwise)", "Angel (angel dust)", "Exchange (mountain steppers dub)", and "Risingson (setting sun dub two)".

MekonsQuality Of Mercy Is Not Strnen ... LP
Virgin/Superior Viaduct, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
The tremendous debut of The Mekons – a very different group at this stage than the well-loved act that has graced the Chicago scene for years! Instead, The Mekons resonate with a quality that really shows their link to the same Leeds scene that spawned Gang Of Four – and, if the gods were just, this album would have gotten the same sort of exposure and enthusiasm as that group's Entertainment – as The Mekons have a fantastic blend of punk, jagged rhythms, and wit – the last of which is maybe summed up by the cover and title, which is the group's play on the old idea of an infinite number of monkeys at an infinite number of typewriters being able to write Shakespeare! The songs are wonderful – a great counterpart to their first few singles on the Fast Product compilation – and titles include "Join Us In The Countryside", "Like Spoons No More", "After 6", "Watch The Film", "I Saw You Dance", "Lonely & Wet", and "Dan Dare".

Mike OldfieldOmmadawn ... LP
Virgin, 1975. Near Mint- ... $3.99
The third album from symphonic rock pioneer Mike Oldfield – at this point unable to steer his way out of the engulfing shadow of his massive Tubular Bells album of a couple years earlier – yet still bearing fruit creatively, as Ommadawn is his third excellent and pretty much unprecedented album of layered instrumental mood rock grandeur in a row! It's not only his third album, it's his third 2 part, single piece epic in a row that's woven from acoustic, electric, classic and modern instrumentation – with a choir and and folk instrumentation keeping in something of an earthy realm, even with synthezisers and more otherworldly touches. Influences from Irish folk to African percussion, it's uncompromising, intricate and interesting to this day! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Soul II SoulKeep On Movin' ... LP
Virgin, 1989. Very Good ... $8.99
Essential! When this one came out at the end of the 80's, it not only restored our faith in modern soul music, but it also drew the world's attention to the rich, rich talents that had been bubbling under in London's mid 80's rare groove scene. The record's a classic, and most of the tracks still sound as fresh today as when they were first minted – probably because Jazzie B drew heavily upon a classic soul sound in his production style, which assured the album an instant place in the upper lineage of R&B! Cuts include "Jazzie's Groove", "Keep On Movin", "Back To Life" "Fairplay", and "African Dance". Great stuff, and surprisingly fresh! LP, Vinyl record album

Virgin, 1990s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Jazzy soul & straight up hip hop from Guru's pioneering Jazzmatazz series – cuts culled from Volumes 1-3 – the Virgin years! Not only did Guru do an admirable job of inspiring a host of jazz legends and contemporary players to get involved, Jazzmatazz also proved to be an excellent platform for singers in the emerging neo soul scene of the 90s – from Lonnie Liston Smith, Ramsey Lewis, Branford Marsalis, Donald Byrd and many more from the jazz world, to Mica Paris, Angie Stone, Kelis, N'Dea Davenport and others on the soul side – plus the Roots and Bahamadia representing hip hop. We always appreciated Guru's efforts with his Jazzmatazz – and it's pretty sweet that it has this lasting positive influence! 18 tracks in all: "No Time To Play" feat Ronnie Jordan & D Cee Lee, "Trust Me" feat N'Dea Davenport, "Slicker Than Most" feat Gary Barnacle, "Down The Backstreets" feat Lonnie Liston Smith, "Sights In The City" feat Courtney Pine & Carleen Anderson, "Loungin'" feat Donald Byrd, "Watch What You Say" feat Chaka Khan & Bradford Marsalis, "Looking Through Darkness" feat Mica Paris, "Choices" feat N'Dea Davenport & Bobbi Humphrey, "Supa Love" feat Kelis and more.

If the opening couple tracks set the bar a little to high to be sustained to the end, there's still a lot to love here, and the other titles include "Weather Storm", "Spying Glass", "Better Things", "Eurochild", "Sly", "Heat Miser" and "Light My Fire".

✨✧ Dexter WanselCaptured (with bonus track) ... CD
Virgin/Cherry Red (UK), 1986. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem from Dexter Wansel – a mid 80s set recorded after his famous albums for Philly International, and a record that offers a nice transition of his earlier groove! The set's got a keyboard-heavy vibe – similar to the mode that Wansel brought to the studio in the late 70s, but with a different 80s spin overall – especially given the use of drum programs in most of the rhythms, and a mix of other instruments from electric sources as well. Yet given Dexter's ear for a tune, the whole thing comes together with a nice degree of warmth, and a sense of soul that's deeper than you'd expect – especially given that Virgin Records were clearly trying for a crossover hit on this one. There's some great vocals on the leadoff track by The Jones Girls – and other vocals are by Meeta Gajjar, Dr Pearl Williams Jones, and Cynthia Biggs El – who co-wrote most of the record with Wansel. Titles include "Captured", "Do What You Wanna Do", "Nam", "In The Wind", "East Meets West", "Heart On The Line", "Conversations", "Turn Me On", and "Year Of Living Dangerously". CD also features a bonus 12" mix of "Captured". CD

As before, Lalah's working with a number of different producers throughout – changing things up a bit, but still holding strong with a quality level that's better than most of her contemporaries – thanks to vocals that are there first, and hardly need any studio help at all – and which really unify the proceedings throughout. Titles include a great remake of "Family Affair" with excellent help from BEF – plus "Bad By Myself", "Lean On Me", "Separate Ways", "Better As A Memory", "Do You Suppose", "Rise", and "Let Me Love You".

Janet's massive follow up to Rhythm Nation 1814 and it's a triumph, too – delivering on all the strengths of other peak era efforts and slyly working in some stylistic detours along the way – asserting herself here as strongly as ever! Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis once again show why they're among the most heralded pop soul producers of the era, from beats driven dancefloor jams to sexy club soul to tender ballads, but make no mistakes, this is Janet's show – this one's official title is Janet, period after all – with badass spoken interludes, vocals that soar in range of styles and an all around assertive vibe that's strong to this day. Includes "That's The Way Love Goes", "You Want This", "If", "This Time", "Throb", "What'll I Do", "Funky Big Band", "Where Are You Now", "Any Time, Any Place", "Because Of Love", "Again" and more.

Mad Professor's moody remixes and dubby takes on classic Mezzanine material – created in '98 and intended to come out that same year as a companion piece to that most legendary of Massive Attack albums – but them most of it was shelved for more that 20 years! With such such an inventive producer/remixer working with such brilliant original material, this is not only a stellar companion piece, it's a timeless effort that stands strongly on its own, too. A few tracks escaped the vaults back in the day as B-sides, but it's pretty revelatory to hear it all after all these years. It hasn't aged a day. Includes "Metal Banshee (Mad Professor Mix One)", "Angel (Angel Dust)", "Teardrop (Mazaruni Dub One)", "Inertia Creeps (Floating On Dubwise)", "Risingson (Setting Sun Dub Two)", "Exchange (Mountain Steppers Dub)", "Wire (Leaping Dub)" and "Group Four (Security Forces Dub)".

✨✧ McDonald & GilesMcDonald & Giles ... CD
Virgin (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning spinoff from the first incarnation of King Crimson – a brilliant record from the team of Ian MacDonald and Michael Giles – both of whom move into territory that's quite different than their work with the more famous Fripp-led group! There's definitely elements here of the music the pair brought to King Crimson – but the songs are looser, more personal, and often have more jazz-rock elements in the mix – which can even result in some cool funky passages at times that are a quite soulful surprise! The album also features strong lyrical contributions from Peter Sinfield, who also sounds a bit hipper here – and work from Steve Winwood, who may well be one of the forces for the more soulful side of the spectrum. Lots of nice flute lines – almost Harold McNair-ish at times – and titles include "Suite In C", "Flight Of The Ibis", "Is She Waiting", "Tomorrow's People The Children Of Today", and "Birdman".
