Merry Clayton  Gimme Shelter front

In order to understand the genuine class act you’re dealing with here – a potted-history of Merry Clayton’s past vocal glories will set the scene. She contributed to Neil Young‘s “The Old Laughing Lady” and “I’ve Loved Her So...

Creation 1974 Creation front cover

Review by RDTEN1 This collection’s tentative claim to fame probably rests with the fact it was an early release by Leon Patillo. Patillo went on to a mid-’70s stint with Santana and then fame as a Christian singer and...


Best known for his work with Chairmen of the Board, 1972 saw singer General Johnson step out with what was technically a solo album. Produced by Johnson and the team of Raynard Mayner, Greg Perry, and William Weatherspoon, “Generally...

Charles Brimmer Soulman front

Although a lot of other LPs on the Chelsea label had more of a pop soul feel, this album (and the other one) by Charles Brimmer is an excellent batch of modern Southern Soul recorded in New Orleans with...

The Sweet Inspirations What The World Needs Now front

If one was cutting a soul, R&B, pop, rock, or girl group record in New York in the ’60s and needed female backup vocals, chances are they’d try to get the Sweet Inspirations first. The group found their way...

D.J. Rogers - It's Good To Be Alive front

An excellent LP by one of the most underrecognized talents of 70’s soul! DJ’s deep soul voice is smooth and mellow, with the kind of honest heartbreaking quality that you find in the best work by Donny Hathaway and...

Thelma Houston Sunshower front

A pretty darn amazing album from Thelma Houston – recorded during the zenith of Jimmy Webb’s career, when Jimmy was not only one of the hippest songwriters in pop, but also kind of a mini-Burt Bacharach, writing, arranging, and...


Fantastic! This is from “the best soul album you never heard”, a true masterpiece from the legendary soul icon LOU RAGLAND. Outstanding soul/funk album out of Ohio with Lou Ragland on all tracks and interestingly Gus Hawkins on flute...

City Limits  Circles front

Not one of the most famous groups on the Philly scene – but a great one! The band’s got a two-male/two-female harmony sound, with some nice jazzy inflections that remind us of similarly-structured groups, like Side Effect and Creative...

linda clifford linda front

This album is the debut outing for Linda Clifford, Curtom Records’ answer to Donna Summer. Although Clifford would soon become a well-known disco diva through hits like her over-the-top remake of “If My Friends Could See Me Now“, this...

Black Sugar front

A latin funk classic Black Sugar, the brainchild of Victor “Coco” Salazar and  Miguel “Chino” Figueroa, was formed in 1969 under the name Los Far Fen, mainly because the group had a Farfisa and a Fender amplifiers as their...

congress alley front

Congress Alley were a group named after a song by the group called Orpheus. Orpheus recorded the song on a self titled album for MGM Records in 1968, which was penned by the songwriter Steve Martin. The song of...

Lewis Webster

Webster Lewis was a fine pianist, clarinetist, conductor and arranger. Although born in Baltimore, Webster Lewis moved to Los Angeles in the mid 1970’s. Prior to his move, Webster played the live circuit, cutting ‘Live At Club 7’ on Counterpoint Records,...

keni burke  front

An Amazing album all the way through. Highly Recommended. Definately one on my favs. Don’t sleep brothers and sisters Just listen to the clips Keni Burke is one of the most talented musician/songwriter/vocalist, who never achieved the recognition and...

Mighty Doug Haynes front

An obscure soul singer, who brings his own style to soul classics. A heck of a great little soul session – by a singer we never heard from again! Doug Haynes hailed from the New York scene of the...
