Sweet Thing
Sweet Thing (7") (1 per customer)
Cat: TR 732. Rel: 03 Dec 20
Soul
  1. Sweet Thing (4:27)
  2. My Baby's Outta Sight (Amen!) (4:30)
Review: Some four years after making his debut with crossover soul gem 'Love Can Last Forever' - the first release on occasional Timmion Records offshoot Styleart, no less -Fred (real name Frederik Lof) finally returns for round two. This time, he's joined forces with Timmion's in-house revivalist 60s soul and funk band, Cold Diamond & Mink, who return to base following a surprise outing on San Francisco's Ubiqiuty Records. A-side 'Sweet Thing' lives up to its title, with Lof's slick, high-register vocals rising above a deliciously positive backing track rich in hazy horns, sweeping strings, and a nostalgic soul groove. Over on the flip you'll find instrumental number 'My Baby's Outta Sight', which appears to be a languid, vocal-free take on the sublime A-side.

Closer
Closer (7")
Cat: FUR 7393. Rel: 11 Dec 20
Soul
  1. Closer (4:26)
  2. Closer (instrumental) (4:23)
Review: Pre-pandemic, Ubiquity Records helped Timmion Records house band Cold Diamond & Mink get into the studio with American soul original Mike James Kirkland, whose two early 1970s have long been favourites of serious soul-heads. The result is a string of new singles, of which 'Closer' is one of the strongest (admittedly in a very strong bunch). Kirkland is at his smooth and seductive best singing tales of love over a typically classic-sounding Cold Diamond and Mink backing track (think hazy horns, languid grooves and glistening guitars). As usual with the Finnish combo's releases, you'll find their impeccable instrumental take on side B.

Stay Don't Go
Cat: FUR 7394. Rel: 11 Dec 20
Soul
  1. Stay, Dont Go (4:13)
  2. Stay, Dont Go (instrumental) (4:12)
Review: Mike James Kirkland is an American soul and rhythm & blues original. He's best known for his early 1970s albums on Bryan Records, Hang On in There and Doin' It Right, but he continues to perform and record to this day. Pre-pandemic, Ubiqiuty Records and Timmion Records joined forces to get him in the studio with the latter's house band, Cold Diamond & Mink. 'Stay Don't Go' is the one of a number of simultaneously released singles by the Kirlland/Cold Diamond combo. It sees him adding his distinctive, life-affirming vocals to a typically breezy, Hammond-and-horn-heavy backing track from the classic soul revivalists, in the process creating a timeless modern soul anthem.

Ain't That Love
  1. Carlton Jumel Smith, Cold Diamond & Mink - "Ain't That Love" (4:25)
  2. Cold Diamond & Mink - "Ain't That Love" (instrumental) (4:25)
Review: Like Daptone house band the Dap-Kings, Timmion's go-to combo Cold Diamond and Mink are absolute masters at delivering revivalist soul and funk cuts that offer authentically old sounds and fuzzy production with new beats, grooves and melodies. They're at it again here with regular collaborator Carlton Jumel Smith. As usual, you'll find the full version on the A, with Smith delivering a raw, impassioned lead vocal above the Finnish band's languid, sweet, sixties-style soul backing track. That instrumental can be enjoyed in all its jazzy, sun-kissed, horn-tooting beauty on side B. As with their other instrumentals, it's near perfect.
