Paradise Island (reissue) (12" 再出版) (1 per customer)
Cat: PMD 01. Rel: 22 Apr 20
  1. Paradise Island (5:24)
  2. Paradise Island (Revisited) (6:22)
  3. Fair Weather Friend (3:04)
Review: You'll struggle to find many cosmic boogie/jazz-funk records rarer than Azwon's 1980 debut single, a private press gem from Florida that has long been in demand amongst collectors. Here the finest track from that double A-side seven-inch, "Paradise Island", is given the reissue treatment. It's worth picking up, not only for the swirling, spaced-out brilliance of the original version of "Paradise Island", but also the slightly bolder, Latin-tinged "Revisited" version the band re-recorded last year for this very release. The production is very similar, sound wise, meaning it's every bit as spaced out as the cut they made 40 years ago. Bonus cut "Fair Weather Friend", a dancefloor-focused jazz-funk workout recorded but not released in 1980, is also rather good.

Review: Destination 78/79: Expansion take us deep into the illustrious back cat of revered boogaloo fusionist Willie Bobo for two of his many fiery delights. Side A is his feel-heavy cult instrumental take on Ronnie Laws' disco classic "Always There" while Side B throws us into the heart of his 1979 album Bobo with gutsy raw soul power (and just a few cheeky funk slap bass twangs for good measure) Two stone cold classics together for the first time on 45.

  1. I've Got Plenty Of Nothin' (2:47)
  2. Think Love (2:18)
Review: Blue-eyed soul singer Mickey Carroll made his name in the late 1970s, offering up a handful of singles and a couple of rock-solid albums. His musical journey began much earlier though, as "I've Got Plenty Of Nothing" proves. It was recorded in 1969 but never officially released, presumably because Carroll couldn't find a label to put it out on. This then is the track's first release. It's well worth picking up, not least because it fixes his country-tinged, crooner style vocals to a stomping, Northern Soul style backing track with added big band horns. Flipside "Think Love" swings more than it stomps, with an arrangement and vocal delivery that reminded us a little of Terry Callier's "Ordinary Joe".

Diana (7" 再出版)

  1. Diana (Caserta 7 The long Way mix) (6:00)
  2. Diana (Caserta Sing-A-long dub) (5:17)
Review: Bridge Boots main man Caserta has previously proved to be one of the most talented re-editors around, up there with higher profile artists such as the Reflex and Joey Negro. His latest offering, a red seven-inch single featuring new rearrangements of Diana Ross hit "I'm Coming Out", is another beauty. On the A-side he offers up a "Long Way Mix" that gives more prominence to Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards' killer backing track (partly via stripping it back to the groove at key points) while retaining most of Ross' vocals. On the flip you'll find a "Sing-A-Long Dub" that strips it back further during key instrumental passages to allow the Motown legend's vocals to shine.

  3. The Answer (feat Ayelle) (3:32)
  4. The West Coast (interlude) (1:04)
  5. Je Plane (feat Crenoka) (3:35)
Review: If smooth, synth-powered soul is your bag, we'd suggest checking out this EP from French future R&B star Jean Janin AKA Cezaire. It begins with a sumptuous slice of '80s soul revivalism featuring guests Phabo and Jordan Lee (the really rather good "You Came In Time") and ends with a bubbly chunk of deep electro-soul ("Je Plane", featuring Crenoka). In between, Janin treats us to some sparse, drowsy and distant lo-fi soul ("Beyonce"), a spacey slown jam featuring immaculate lead vocals by Ayelle (the synth-bass-propelled goodness of "The Answer"), and an all-to-short tribute to talkbox-sporting Los Angeles synth-funk jams of the 1980s ("The West Coast").

Cat: BH 115BLACK. Rel: 14 May 20
  1. Rescue Me (3:28)
  2. Bar-B-Q (3:28)
Review: Rework merchant Djar One can usually be relied to deliver the goods, regardless of whether he's in re-edit, mash-up or full on remix mode. For his latest trick, he's taken his scalpel to Fontella Bass soul classic "Rescue Me", beefing up the beats a little and thickening up the bassline while keeping much of the original in-tact. It's undeniably floor-friendly and reverential enough not to annoy those who love the original (which, let's face it, is almost all of us). Over on the flipside, he fattens up another classic soul gem, once again making the beats flow in a way that suits modern dancefloors without particularly tampering with the track's infectiously stomping groove.

I Called You Back Baby (coloured vinyl 7")
Cat: CLMN 183C1. Rel: 29 May 20
  1. I Called You Back Baby (3:03)
  2. Impressions Of You (3:54)
Review: Last year Kelly Finnigan - son of storied Hammond organist Mike Finnigan - released his debut album, "The Tales People Tell", a gloriously authentic and wholehearted tribute to 1960s soul and funk. It's from that set that these two tracks are taken. A-side "I Called You Baby" is an unflinchingly heavy deep funk workout rich in bustling breakbeats, memorable guitar riffs, sustained organ chords and fiery horn riffs, all topped off with a brilliant lead vocal from Finnigan. On flipside "Impressions of You", Finnigan switches mood, adding another heartfelt, passionate vocal to a slow, loved-up backing track that's every bit as impressive as the club-ready A-side.

  1. Ella Fitzgerald - "Get Ready" (Soul Flip edit) (3:53)
  2. Tammi Terrell - "Two Can Have A Party" (Soul Flip edit) (3:44)
Review: The Soul Flip crew are back to rework and carefully tweak more classic cuts to get those dance floors in a spin. This time they turn their attention to the evergreen classic "Get Ready" from jazz great Ella Fitzgerald. The already student and empowering single is beefed up with drums that have extra kick, crisp hits and fills and string stabs that are as bright as the sun. Things get a little more soulful and sun kissed with Tammi Terrell - "Two Can Have A Party" and its hip swinging finger clicks and gorgeously soaring strings.

  1. What About The Child (2:44)
  2. Now I Know (4:17)
Review: "What About The Child" by Avelino Pitts' obscure band GOLD has long been a sought-after deep funk rarity, with copies of the 1977 seven-inch single being extremely hard to come by these days. Helpfully Athens of the North's Euan Fryer knows the score and has decided to offer-up a much-needed reissue. The track is a fine slab of psychedelic soul in the vein of leading San Francisco groups of the period - Vehicle, Tower of Power and so on - with plenty of rhythmic shuffle and fine group vocals. Fryer has unearthed a gem for the flip, too: a previously unreleased cut that's on a similar sonic tip to Rotary Connection. It's worth the entrance price on its own.

  1. Johnny Hernandez - "Ain't No Big Thing" (3:56)
  2. Black Pumas - "Look At My Soul" (feat Kam Franklin) (3:27)
Review: Two years ago, Nacional Records released "Look at My Soul", an album from funk-soul multi-instrumentalist and producer Adrian Quesada that featured a wealth of guest performers. Here the LA label revisits the project, offering up two of the album's most potent cuts on "45" for the very first time. Veteran Latin American Texan Johnny Hernandez stars on superb A-side "Ain't No Big Thing", adding his gravelly but emotion-rich voice to a languid chunk of jaunty, horn-heavy 1960s style soul. On B-side cut "Look At My Soul", Quesada's psychedelic soul band Black Pumas are accompanied by righteous soul diva Kam Franklin on an even more emotive, organ-heavy chunk of end-of-night soul. By the end, we guarantee you'll be holding a lighter aloft and singing along with your eyes closed.

Little Sunflower (reissue) (12" 再出版) (1 per customer)
Cat: AS 671AB. Rel: 14 Apr 20
  1. Little Sunflower (9:11)
Review: Best known amongst house heads for being the source of the lilting orchestral sample in Pepe Bradock's "Deep Burnt", Freddie Hubbard's 1979 version of "Little Sunflower" is a soul-jazz classic and a half. Since the full version of Hubbard's vocal re-make (the trumpeter first recorded an instrumental take in 1968) only ever appeared on a hard-to-find promo 12", this Record Store Day reissue should be an essential purchase. It remains a gentle, breezy and sunset-ready jazz-dance gem, with Hubbard's emotion-rich vocals and mazy trumpet solos riding Latin-tinged percussion, elastic double bass and some suitably jammed-out jazz pianos. In other words, it's the kind of life-affirming treat that's capable of spreading sunshine on even the cloudiest day.

Review: For the second release on their new joint venture Mixed Signals, Henry Jones and Seance Centre founder Brandon Hocura have decided to offer-up a selection of tracks from Harold Lucious' overlooked 1990 album "Connected". Lucious' far-sighted blend of soulful house, new jack swing and what us Brits would call street soul comes to the fore on opener "Let The Feelin' - Turn You Out", a stripped-back, synth-heavy chunk of deep house-soul, and on the much more upbeat club cut "What Does It Take". It can also be heard, too, on delicious flipside opener "I Like It", where Lucious' layered vocals ride a tactile, lo-fi deep house groove. Our pick of the bunch though is sumptuously slow closing cut "Try My Love", which is much closer in tone to street soul.

  1. Move On Up (3:48)
  2. Give Me Your Love (3:32)
Review: By now, you should know Devon Russell's sought-after 1984 cover of Curtis Mayfield classic "Move On Up", a incredible, post-disco era reggae-soul revision that just oozes sun-splashed positivity. It's virtually impossible to pick up the original 45 so this dinked reissue from Mukatsuku Records is most welcome and has been lovingly remastered. The seven-inch is also notable for including another overlooked gem from Russell's even lesser-known 1993 album of Mayfield covers, "Darker Than Blue". His rendition of "Give Me Your Love" here presented for the very first time in a 45 format is blissfully glassy-eyed, colourful and hazy, giving the Mayfield classic a decidedly Balearic reggae feel via head-nodding grooves, fluid synthesizer lines and jazzy guitar solos. In a word: brilliant.Supported so far by DJ Koco & DJ Muro from Japan and Mr Thing, Andy Smith & Boca 45 from the uk....

Review: "Slacking Off" came from a Nassauvians session that found the band coming back together in the studio for the first time after a little break, but totally unprepared. Despite this, they struck real aloha gold, with Hawaiian soul, gently lilting funk and Balearic guitars all making it as summery as you could wish for. Flipside "The Time Is Now" is a previously unreleased AOR island recording with Nassauvians man Tommy Goodwin on guitar and pal Don Lepage on harmonica, and will make you nostalgic for a time and a place never known.

  1. Don't Act Like A Fool (4:25)

Review: Athens of the North boss Euan Fryer recently described Premonition as "the best obscure New York boogie act you've never heard of". He'll be releasing an entire album of their rare and unreleased material later in the year, but first he's treating us to a reissue of their best-known moment - impossible-to-find 1986 soulful boogie slammer "Don't Act Like A Fool". The track ticks all the right boxes -rubbery slap bass, mid-80s FM synth sounds, passionate male lead vocal, needless but delicious sax and electric guitar solos etc - and is little less than an overlooked dancefloor heater. On the flip you'll also find original B-side "In Love", which Fryer brilliantly (and accurately) describes as a "mid-tempo floater".

Here he delivers a limited-edition "45" featuring one of the album's most potent cuts, Slug and Eamon hook-up "Golden Oldies". Featuring a blend of crunchy beats, sweet '70s soul samples, loved-up chorus vocals and some tight, on-point raps from the man himself, the track lives up to the nostalgic promise of its title. Over on the flip there's a first vinyl airing for the previously cassette-only 2013 cut "It's Gone", a stuttering slab of 21st century boom-bap produced by former DMC World Champ DJ Noize.

  1. The Way We Live (3:39)
  2. This Thing Called Music (3:54)
Review: When copies of Raw Soul Express's The Way We Live crop up online, they regular fetch eye-watering sums of money. Originally released back in 1977 on T.K Records' soul/funk offshoot Cat, it remains the greatest single work by the short-lived Miami band. "The Way We Live" is a superb example of sun-kissed, feel good, conscious disco/soul/funk fusion, built around a killer, horn-toting groove and emotion-rich vocal. The jazzy, low-slung flipside "This Thing Called Music" is less in demand, but almost as good. As a result, this is a surprise reissue that all funk, soul and disco diggers should crave.

Review: Skull Snaps are one of those cult groups from the heyday of funk and soul who have slowly bubbled away under the surface, getting due props from those in the know for one seminal LP, which came out in 1973. 43 years on, and the New York group are dropping a 7" on Six Nine Records with two tracks not found on that self-titled LP. "That's The Way I Feel About You" is a powerful boogie-soul number originally penned by Bobby Womack, Joe Hicks and John Grisby. The party jam is on the flip though, a Skull Snaps original entitled "Action" with a raw punch that should get the heads as hyped as the groove hounds when it drops in the dance.

  1. Oh Linda (2:45)
  2. Track 2 (2:42)
Review: In 1977, Atlanta fusionists Starfoxx had a big hit in the US Billboard chart with "Disco Rock", a cut that -as the title suggests - added a rock and rhythm & blues edge to the then dominant disco sound. It was something of a novelty, but much of their earlier work is pretty darn hot. "Oh Linda", which first appeared in stores in 1973, could well be the hottest of the lot. Sitting somewhere between the rasping blues-rock of Cream and more extravagant American funk and soul, the track is full to bursting with crunchy Clavinet riffs, throaty vocals and mazy electric piano solos. This reissue from TRAMP contains just the one track (pressed to both sides for some reason), but don't let that put you off: it really is a must-have.

Review: You don't have to look far to find a Marvin Gaye edit or sample but few are as tasteful as this new 7" from Roots member Stro Elliot who is a master of chopping up and sampling sounds. He proves that again here as "Marvin's Mood (Part 1)" feels like a wholly new beat, with lush instrumental, lo-fi drums and carefully deployed vocal coos from the master of soul himself. "Marvin's Mood "Part 2)" makes use of similar samples but layers them over a more rolling and crisp boom-bap beat. Both are full of heart and will have early evening floors keen to get moving.

  2. Ricky Womack & The New Age Christian Ensemble - "New Day New Time" (4:40)
Review: If you have even the smallest interest in the worlds of gospel soul and gospel disco, there's a fair chance you've already picked up at least one volume in Tone B. Nimble's ongoing series of split 7" singles, "Soul Is My Salvation". If not, we'd recommend checking out this fourth volume. The A-side sports a superb slab of what sounds like late 1970s, disco-era jazz-funk/gospel soul fusion from obscure Michigan band Cash Money, which was previously featured on the B-side of an extremely rare, private press single. Arguably even better is B-side "New Day New Time", a 1990 chunk of synthesizer and slap-bass heavy gospel soul genius plucked from Ricky Womack and the New Age Christian Ensemble's similarly rare album "Something Within".

Combining previously released tracks (including some made as part of similarly obscure outfit T'Spoon and the gospel-leaning band The Davis Family), unheard extended versions and previously unreleased songs, the album is warm, soulful, slick and summery. Highlights include the stuttering P-funk flex of "Cats Meow", the sizzling dancefloor heat of "School Dance" and the deliciously extended version of glassy-eyed '80s soul jam "Never". If sparkling, synth-heavy '80s soul is your thing, this is one surprise retrospective you won't want to miss.

Their self-titled debut features covers of Jamie Lidell's classic "Green Light" with big horns and lively drums, as well as more smooth and sweet soul in the mood of The Isley Brothers, and soaring, heart swelling styles in the fashion of Leroy Hutson. Band leader, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Mathew Ajjarapu brings his love of 50s and 60s doo-wop and lo-fi works to the tracks, making them perfectly imperfect in the process.

Review: It would be fair to say that Nick Hakim's new album - his third, following 2017's breakthrough set "Green Twins" - is not a barrel of laughs. It is, though, something of a stunner. So while the lyrics are thoughtful, weighty and heartfelt, mixing social and political commentary with the kind of care-worn personal introspection he does so well - the music is stirring and emotion-rich, offering a take on soul that fuses grandiose, wall-of-sound production (read: lots of reverb) with densely layered backing vocals, snare-heavy beats, and slightly psychedelic instrumentation that recalls both the glory days of conscious soul and the kind of lo-fi soul that revels in its stripped-back looseness. Highlights are plentiful throughout, with the epic "Qadir" and super-sweet "Crumpy" initially catching the ear.
