This amazing one-off album produced by Roy Ayers featured the group Eighties Ladies made up of the singing talents of Susan Beaubian, Marva Hicks, Vivian Prince, Denie Corbett & Sylvia Striplin backed by an all-start line-up Roy Ayers band...

P.P. Arnold front

I have a major soft spot for P.P. Arnold.  She came to England with the Ike and Tina Turner Review and stayed to become part of Swinging London.  Main squeeze of Mick Jagger, she signed with Immediate Records, whose...

maxi anderson front

I have been after this album for many many years, in which was only availble on vinyl back in the seventies and eigties for a lot of monies, a rare groove masterpiece it is a trully beautiful album of...

Creative Source front

The massive first album from Creative Source – a really unique group who really helped push the ensemble vocal mode forward in the 70s! The mixed male/female lineup recalls similar groups of the late 60s – but Creative Source...

The Stairsteps Step By Step By Step front

Although this set was issued by Buddah in 1970, it’s a great set featuring some of the earliest work that the Five Stairsteps recorded for Curtis Mayfield’s Windy C label during the late 60s, under his production talents as...

Melba Moore Look What You're Doing to the Mam front

A great early soul set from Melba Moore – recording here as a much more righteous vocalist than on her previous theater performances in Purlie and Hair! The album’s got a solid feel all the way through – one...

The-Soul-Searchers-Salt-Of-The-Earth-front.jpeg

The second Soul Searchers LP expands the band’s music into deep and dark new dimensions. While boasting an even funkier street-smart approach than the previous We the People, Salt of the Earthachieves new levels of jazz-inspired sophistication as well....

emotions-1977-rejoice-front

A huge hit for both The Emotions and Maurice White – whose Kalimba Productions handled this album in the same hit mode they’d been using for Earth Wind & Fire! There’s a polished, soaring bounce her that definitely shows...

Delegation - 1977 - The Promise Of Love front

Delegation was a British soul musical group with a lengthy career, and a huge amount of international success. They were widely accepted in US as the leading light of soul from the UK based on the crossover hit, “Oh...

Eddy Senay Step By Step front

Eddy Senay’s second and final Sussex effort hones his music to a lean, mean edge. For a record so loose and laid-back on its surface, Step by Step contains not a single superfluous note or accoutrement, creating fierce funk...

West Coast Revival front

  One Of The Rarest And Most Desirable Soul-Funk Albums Out Of Southern California. Includes The Wicked, Heavy Soul-Funk Percussion Breakbeat Tune “My Mind Is At Ease” Plus The Slow Groovin’ With Fat Bass “Feelin’ Alright“. Male soul vocal...

COLLINS AND COLLINS front

A stunning set – and one of our favorite modern soul albums ever! The set was recorded at Sigma Sound Studios in 1980, and it’s one of the best-ever records to come out of that hallowed hall of grooves...

Hank Crawford - I Hear A Symphony front

Not really a symphony, but a great album that features the soulful alto sax of Hank Crawford blowing over some rich larger backings from David Matthews – all with a sweetly funky Kudu sound! The style’s a bit more...

front

The smooth voices of Harry Ray, Billy Brown, and Al Goodman ring true on ten hit and miss sides. The misses are the filler that comprise half the ten songs; they aren’t irritating or ingratiating, just bland tunes with...

front

Don Downing is the older brother of Al Downing, but the siblings differ musically. Al is urban smooth, while Don favors Disco. “Dream World” and the southern-flavored “Lonely Days, Lonely Nights” enjoyed some minor chart success a few years...

white heat front

An obscure side project of Barry White (“White” Heat, get it?) – and a pretty darn tasty batch of ensemble funk tracks! The sound is less White-oriented than some of his other side groups – with a stripped-down sound...
