Me Guesta Boogalo
Cat: HR7 S 160. Rel: 20 Nov 20
  1. Me Guesta Boogaloo (3:10)
  2. Pastime Paradise (4:13)
Review: It's all about the cover version of Stevie Wonders anthem on the flip from this Japanese based latin centric outfit. Killer !Alien Liberty International may not be that well known this side of the World, but the expansive Latin combo have been releasing sizzling music -mostly on CD, for some reason - in their native Japan for the last couple of years. Here they make their long-awaited vinyl debut with a sizzling slab of authentic 1960s Harlem boogaloo full of infectious rhythms, rousing horns and vocals that may inspire sing-alongs if dropped at the right time. Equally as impressive is their flipside instrumental cover of Stevie Wonder classic 'Pastime Paradise', which brilliantly re-imagines the song as Latin jazz-funk gem complete with flanged guitars, a rousing horn section, a brilliant percussion-only breakdown and duelling flute and sax solos, both of which do a great job replicating the original's vocal melody.

Cat: PRS 1004. Rel: 11 Nov 20
  1. When You Go (That's When You'll Know) (3:34)
  2. Over & Over (3:47)
Review: Some seriously dewy-eyed revivalist southern soul here from Daptone's superb Penrose sub-label. It comes courtesy of The Altons, a blue-eyed soul band from Maryland whose debut album on Mango Hill, In The Meantime, is well worth your attention. Neither of these two slow and emotive songs are featured on that set, but they'd fit right in. A-side 'When You Go (That's When You Know)' is impressively heartfelt and languid, with jazzy guitars, sustained Hammond organ chords and a laidback, early '6-s style soul groove underpinning sugary group harmony and lead vocals. Flipside 'Over & Over' is a slow and heart-wrenching break up song that's arguably even more impactful. Impressive stuff.

  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.

  1. Don't You Worry Baby The Best Is Yet To Come (3:39)
  2. Try To Leave Me If You Can (4:31)
Review: The amount of ultra-rare, hard to find, essential Northern Soul classics seems to be infinite. Here comes another reissue that aims to right that wrong with an officially licensed pair of tunes from the Phase One Network that has artwork based on the original promo version. 'Don't You Worry Baby The Best Is Yet To Come' is brimming with soul and immediately swells your heart with its elegant strings, graceful piano chords and swirling sense of groove all lifting you off your feet. 'Try To Leave Me If You Can' is a heartbroken slow song to conjure up memories of all the loves you've lost, or maybe never had.

Take Me With You
Cat: HR7S 154. Rel: 20 Nov 20
  1. Take Me With You (3:25)
  2. Take Me With You (version) (3:30)
Review: With sunshine becoming a regular occurrence again just in time for summer, two of France's more soulful producers have decided to join forces and offer up something suitably warm and relaxing. With the assistance of vocalist Kahina Ouali, Blundetto and Booker Gee have recorded a killer, Hammond-laden version of Lyn Christopher classic "Take Me With You" that sits somewhere between the organs-and-lo-fi-drum machines flex of Timmy Thomas' "We Can't We Live Together" and the soulful reggae grooves of 1980s lovers rock. The fine A-side original mix, which boasts Ouali's full vocal, is our pick of the pair, though the flipside instrumental "Version" mix, in which Booker Gee gets busy on the organ, is also superb.

Baluba Shake
Ace
Cat: NW 5. Rel: 24 Nov 20
  1. Brunetta - "Baluba Shake" (2:22)
  2. Rita Pavone - "Il Geghege" (2:15)
Review: Ace Records are she-pop experts who have kept a constant stream of high quality offerings from the 1960s coming. Featuring mostly British and American artists the label now widens its net to serve up a pair of high impact tunes from their well-received Ciao Bella! Italian Girl Singers Of The 1960s compilation CD. Brunetta's 'Baluba Shake' has big and cavernous drums, plucked guitar riffs and rollicking great chords next to lung-busting vocals. It's a real dancer. Things get more impassioned on the high speed funk chase that is Rita Pavone's 'Il Geghege.'

Review: Two much over soul vocalist from the North Soul era step up on one mighty 7" here with Tyrone Davis' essential version of Clarence Carter's 'Slip Away' on the first side. It has never been available as a single before and with the brass build and funky groove, it's irresistible. Flip it over and drop that needle for a different but equal good sound, this time as Gene Chandler builds a high energy and intense vibe as he covers James Brown's huge 'There Was A Time'. Sharp, driving and high impact, it's the second sizzler on this fine 7".

Never Gonna Fall In Love Again (Like I Fell In Love With You)
  1. Never Gonna Fall In Love Again (Like I Fell In Love With You) (feat Vanessa Haynes) (6:25)
  2. Never Gonna Fall In Love Again (Like I Fell In Love With You) (Disco instrumental) (6:13)
Review: This record is a re-make of a Carmen Amez disco and boogie gem from 1983. The original goes for well over L200 and isn't even that good a pressing. This cover first saw the light of day as a 12" in September that was only acquired by certain DJs. It soon started trading for high prices as people wondered what the hell it was, who it was by, and whether it was a shifty bootleg. That's all resolved now as it gets a proper out with a freshly re-recorded version with strings, horns, bells, whistles and Vanessa Haynes on vocals. It's a lush bit of floor filling heart swelling disco, funk and soul gold with soaring strings to boot.

Review: Marsh Mellow first put out this tidy funk 7" in 2011 and now reissue 100 copies of it on white vinyl. Side A is DJ Suro a re-work of Patti Drew's 1968 version of 'Hard to Handle' that has big brass sounds, low slung bass and a fine soul vocal scoring to real heights. The flip is a distinctly Latin take on 'Por Eso' that swaggers between wooden hits and Spanish vocals. It's pure sunshine on 7" and though the water might be closing in, this one keeps the good time open air party vibes well and truly alive.

Review: US soul and rare groove outfit Heaven Sent & Ecstasy are a mysterious duo who only made this one record, but boy what a record it is. It first came in 1980 and has a weird sub title, but that doesn't detract from the gloriousness of the music. Some of its tunes were included in the soundtrack of Scrolls, The Book of Life and this is the first time it has landed on vinyl after a 2006 CD reissue. There are intricate moments of r&b pain, soaring jazz-funk grooves that will make any dance floor move and more raw funk jams driven by hard hitting kick and angular guitar riffs.

  1. Get On Out There (3:26)
  2. Why (3:51)
Review: Both of these tunes are from the early 80s and are somehow previously unreleased. Jay Stovall played with several bands before finally putting together Machine in 1977 at a time when disco soul and R&B were all in a happy and endless state of cross-pollination. That is embodied in 'Get On Out There', a killer bit of disco with nice raw claps cantering way over a strident beat that comes with a mandatory diva vocal. Flip it over and you'll find a much more sentimental and slow motion mood on 'Why', a rueful and reflection love song riding on lo-fi drums with gloriously soaring vocals.

  1. How Long Do I Have To Wait For You? (vocal mix) (4:03)
  2. How Long Do I Have To Wait For You? (instrumental) (2:58)
Review: Remarkably, 16 years have passed since Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings first released 'How Long Do I Have To Wait', one of the revivalist soul and funk band's sweetest and most heartfelt songs. Written and produced by Dap-Kings main man Bosco Mann, the song features one of Jones' most evocative and impassioned lead vocals, as well as a pleasingly laidback, loose-limbed groove, jazzy guitars and pitch-perfect horn blasts. As it did back in 2004, this reissue pairs the peerless vocal version with Mann's typically fuzzy, lovingly crafted instrumental take. If you missed out first time round, make sure you grab a copy.

What If We All Stopped Paying Taxes?
  1. What If We All Stopped Paying Taxes? (4:40)
  2. This Land Is Your Land (4:28)
Review: Daptone recently released a killer collection of archival cover versions by in-house band the Dap-Kings and their sadly departed lead singer Sharon Jones. One of the headline attractions on that set, the band's righteous, call-to-arms soul version of Woody Guthrie's folk anthem 'This Land Is Our Land', is also featured on this must-have reissue of a "45" that first dropped in 2004. It's superb, but even better is A-side 'What If We All Stopped Paying Taxes?', a floor-friendly conscious soul/funk crossover written and recorded at the height of the second Gulf War with Iraq. As usual, Jones' impeccable lead vocal is supported brilliantly by the band's fiery instrumentation and Bosco Mann's fuzzy, sixties-style production.

Review: Miami soul man Jason Joshua Hernandez-Rodriguez was last seen (and heard) lending his slick, emotive vocals to local "organ funk" combo Scone Cash Players' 2019 album "As The Screw Turns". Here he joins forces with producer Bosco Mann and a specially assembled group of Florida-based backing musicians for a first single on Daptone's "Southern Soul" offshoot Penrose. "Language of Love" is a pleasingly heavy but jaunty affair where headline-grabbing horns and Hernandez-Rodriguez's impassioned lead vocal ride a bustling Latin soul groove. The Floridian artist takes a different approach on the flip, doffing a cap to Joe Bataan on a heart-aching, mid-tempo torch song full of tumbling violin lines, and sumptuous soul grooves.

Review: Given that the last time this prime slab of Texan funk appeared on wax was way back in 1969, we'd say this special Record Store Day 2020 reissue is long overdue. A-side 'Iron Leg' is a bona-fide bomb: a fuzzy, low-slung, psychedelic-era instrumental funk smasher rich in hazy Hammond stabs, mazy solos, crunchy breakbeats, rising horn riffs and insanely weighty bass. It comes backed with 'Chocolate', a similarly bass-heavy but slightly jazzier instrumental funk workout that's well worth dancefloor spins. Original copies regularly change hands for three figure sums, so copping this essential reissue will save your bank balance (or leave plenty spare to buy other killer funk records!).

Review: This year, a number of labels - most notably Dynamite Cuts - have been digging in to the seemingly bottomless archives of much-sampled American-Trinidadian artist and producer George Semper, a man many consider to be "the Godfather of Bay Area soul". Here Mukatsuku gets in on the act by offering up a fresh pressing of Semper-produced funk band In One Piece's rare, self-titled debut the first time ever on a 45. The vocal version on side A is superb, and features Cindy Jones singing attractively over a bustling, loose-limbed, B-Boy friendly rhythm track and sweaty Hammond B3 solos from jazz organist Rodney Franklin. The latter's mazy, jazzy keys-work naturally comes to the fore on the flipside instrumental, which has never before been heard let alone released until now. A genuine must-have for funk fans and B-Boys searching for drum breaks alike....As played by DJ Koco from Japan...DJ Spinna....DJ Muro...Mr Thing....Rob Life....Rob Manga....The Allergies....Smoove Evil Ed...etc

They came up in the Bay Area of San Fran and worked with various other bands and producers before the Basey Brothers went it alone. They set up the NIA label and kicked it off with the two soul gems presented here. 'Help Me' is a golden cut with big horns and strings, driving rhythm section and vocal harmonies to swell the heart. 'Spellbound' then sends you into a spin with its soaring vocals reaching up to the heavens, gentle drums and warming keys.

  1. Love Will Come (2:36)
  2. She's So Confused (2:58)
Review: 20 years ago, the previously unissued 'Love Will Come' was featured on a compilation of Northern Soul style tracks from Philadelphia. Here it finally gets a much-deserved vinyl pressing courtesy of MD Records. It's well worth picking up, because it's a mid-1960s gem that combines a Northern Soul-friendly stomping soul groove with boisterous, celebratory horns and simply superb lead vocals from Patty Russell. Quite why it has never made it onto wax before remains a mystery; either way, we're glad it finally has. Turn to the flip and you'll find a previously unheard treat from the band: an answer record to their successful single 'Mixed Up, Shook Up, Girl' to adds doo-wop style harmony vocals to a handclap-heavy, pop-soul backing track of the sort that was so popular in 1964.

Review: Those familiar with the 2000s nu-jazz scene should be aware of Cecilia Stalin, whose star turn on Koop single 'Waltz for Koop' made the track something of a scene anthem back in the day. Surprisingly, the Swedish singer has not released that many solo records, with this set marking her first full-length for the best part of 15 years. I Am is a smooth, evocative and emotion-rich affair in which Stalin adds her distinctive voice (both singing and speaking) to a variety of tactile jazz workouts. While some of these are quite traditional, others draw on jazz-funk, cool jazz, trip-hop, downtempo and soul-jazz. It makes for an attractive, easy-to-listen-to set that provides a perfect vehicle for Stalin's obvious - if sadly not widely known - vocal talents.

Review: Thaba is a collaboration between South African singer-songwriter Khusi Seremane and American produce and musician Gabriel Cyr, and this album comes with a rather sad caveat: back in summer, Seremane died just a few days after turning 41 from long term health issues. The music, though, lives on, with plenty of references to bubblegum, kwaito, 90's R&B, and classic downtempo. It is a testament to the transformative power of love and the impermanence of all things with deep and spiritual tunes next to more freeform and jazz laced thinkers such as 'Confided.' The ofd love song even sneaks on with gems like 'Mungu' really resonating.

Review: Penrose is a brand new "sub-division" of much-loved revivalist soul and funk label Daptone. It was established by main man (and producer extraordinaire) Bosco Mann to showcase soul and funk music from in and around Southern California, where his studio is now based. The imprint's first single comes courtesy of Thee Sacred Souls, a San Diego-based trio who recorded this fine debut single under Mann's watchful eye. A-side "Can I Call You A Rose" is particularly potent, with super-sweet lead and backing vocals rising above an emotive bed of glistening jazz guitar licks, slow drums and warming bass guitar. The future SoCal stars pick things up on the flip, delivering a retro-futurist, reverb-laden gem that reminded us a little of some of Mayer Hawthorne's most loved-up works.

Review: For those who don't always pay as much attention as they should to the contemporary modern soul scene, Expansion's annual Soul Togetherness compilations are a godsend. There's naturally plenty to set the pulse racing on the 2020 edition, including a bunch of killer modern soul and 21st century ER&B gems that have never before appeared on wax. Highlights include the slick '80s soul revivalism of DW3's 'Never Gonna Stop', the smooth soulful house warmth of Will Downing's 'Right Where You Are', the early '80s boogie flex of Cool Million's 'Keep On', the sparking '70s disco heat of Privat Projekt's 'Don't Walk This Way' and the head-nodding positivity of Carmichael Musiclover's 'Pure Sweetness'.

Review: Symphonical Records serve up a fantastic and thorough in-depth exploration of black and brown American soul artists from back in the day on this new compilation. It's a super sweet sound that offers up a number of obscure singles which have previously been private press only. Most of the artists are unknown but they shouldn't be as these tunes sit up there with some of the most beautifully heart aching soul sounds you could wish to hear. There are languid rollers like 'Take A Good Look', sentimental love songs like 'Fools Love' and plenty in between. Importantly, each song is released in direct collaboration with the artists and producers themselves.

Because Of You

Review: If you have ever tried to track down an original copy of this cult Northern Soul classic you will know it will cost you anywhere between L200 and L400 for the b-side, and around L80 for the a-side. They come from 1973 and 1967 respectively and are real classics of the genre now carefully, and cost-effectively, reissued by Deptford Northern Soul Club Records. The opening side is the sound of Jackie in fantastic form. 'Because Of You' is a truly pained tale of love that captures the intensity of such experiences perfectly.
