I Love You (reissue)
I Love You (reissue) (7" 再プレス) (1 per customer)
Cat: BK 029RE. Rel: 26 Oct 20
  1. I Love You (4:33)
  2. I Love You (instrumental) (5:08)
Review: Since it first hit stores in 2004, the Bees' limited-edition single "I Love You" - a heart-aching, expertly realised blue-eyed tribute to the sugary, downtempo end of the late 1950s/early 1960s soul spectrum - has become an in-demand item. Here it is finally given the reissue treatment, with the lauded Isle of Wight-based band's superb vocal version - all impassioned, teary-eyed lead vocals and harmonious, doo-wop style backing vox - once again coming backed by an instrumental mix in which their glistening guitars and authentically fuzzy horns are naturally more prominent in the mix. It's one of the single most impactful and beautiful songs in their catalogue, so you definitely need this in your life.

Norma Jean
Cat: DAP 1134. Rel: 22 Oct 20
  1. Norma Jean (3:37)
  2. Norma Jean (instrumental) (3:37)
Review: Iconic modern soul label Daptone does a fine job of capturing the rawness of old with each and every vital 7" they put out. Now they introduce another fantastic voice to the world in the form of Napoleon Demps. A Flint Michigan native raised on classic soul sounds, he is an accomplished vocalist himself these days and has long been a fan of this label. He lay down this first single last year in Penrose Recorders in Riverside, California and the results are stunning: 'Norma Jean' is funky and groovy with plenty of vocal nuance and a heart swelling sound that soars next to sweeping strings and crisp wooden hits.

Home Is Where The Edit Is (7" limited to 300 copies)
Cat: SSR 222. Rel: 26 Oct 20
  1. Home Is Where The Edit Is (4:03)
  2. Home Is Where The Dub Is (4:03)
Review: It is undervalued soul singer Esther Phillips's cover version of Gil Scott's Heron's cult classic 'Home Is Where The Hatred Is' that provides the source material for this latest edit from DJ Soopasoul. ON the a-side is a version pretty faithful to the original, only with more bulky drums, drawn out grovers and some extra drum fills for that more suitable dance floor feel. The strings will also soar on the right system. A dub pairs it back slightly to a raw funk groove with plenty of hard blue eyed soul also colouring the mix.

Turned On To You (reissue)

  1. Turned On To You (5:26)

  3. I Knew That Love (4:52)
Review: Denie Corbett, Marva Hicks, Susan Beaubian, Sylvia Striplin and Vivian Prince are Eighites Ladies, a vocal ensemble best known for their hit 'Turned On To You'. An iconic rare groove gem from the 80s, it has since been sampled any number of times by giants like A Tribe Called Quest. An edited version has been put out before on an Expansion 7" but an extended version has alway been sought after. Well, here it is along with 'Give Me Your Love', a solo tune from Sylvia. 'Sing Me' also makes the cut to ensure this soul gem is an essential pick up.

Set You Free
Cat: CORD 12003. Rel: 27 Oct 20
  1. Set You Free (long version) (11:51)
  2. Mellow (6:08)
  3. Life (4:00)
Review: Earlier in the year, rare and unissued soul specialists Cordial Recordings offered up a fine album of previously unreleased recordings by Family of Swede, an obscure Oakland, California-based band who were briefly active in the mid 1970s. The label has now decided to follow this up by releasing the full, near 12-minute recording of album highlight 'Set Me Free', a deliciously spacey, slow-motion cosmic soul number that sounds like a Californian stoner's take on some of Cymande's most laidback and intergalactic work. It's rather brilliant all told, as is flipside opener 'Mellow', a synth-laden trip through up-tempo space-funk territory that's as infectious as Covid 19 at a student house party. 'Life', a funky slab of blue-eyed soul brilliance, completes a must-have EP.

Slow Down
Slow Down (7")
Cat: MA 005. Rel: 14 Oct 20
  1. Slow Down (4:14)
  2. I Deserve A Little Bit More (4:34)
Review: Miles Away are always on a mission to unearth new old gems. Their tireless work now gives rise to a pair of big hitters from The Grooms, a band who only ever flashed this one single back in the 1970s. It came originally on a little-known label in Norfolk, VA headed up by Noah H. Biggs, called Shiptown, and was during the peak era of Motown, Atlantic and Stax. Thankfully the label boss saw its potential. The super charged 'Slow Down' on the A side is wrought with emotion and on the reverse is a more moody and heartfelt ballad called 'I Deserve A Little Bit More.'

Never Say (reissue)
Cat: BK 030. Rel: 26 Oct 20
  1. Never Say (3:16)
  2. When The Night Comes (feat Vicki Harvey) (4:17)
Review: Following its initial low-key release in 1985, Kevin "Mr Groove" McCord's 'Never Say' became a firm favourite in both his home city of Detroit, and across the Atlantic on the UK soul scene. Here the hard-to-find seven-inch version of the track - McCord's favourite version, according to the boffins behind the Backatcha label - is given a much-deserved reissue. A bright, breezy, sun-soaked affair the layers fluid piano motifs, mazy synthesizer sounds, sax solos and soulful female vocals over a typically tasty post-boogie groove, the track is three and a half minutes of pure, unadulterated joy. This time round the song comes backed with polished, smooth and sensual slow jam 'When The Night Comes', a 1991 production first featured on McCord's hard-to-find album of the same name.

Now That I Have You (Record Store Day 2020)

  2. Now That I Have You (original Soundtrack '86 Hip Kik version) (4:54)
  3. Stay With Me (original Soundtrack '81 version) (2:51)
  4. Now That I Have You (original '86 Hip Kik instrumental version) (4:52)
Review: 'Now That I Have You' is simply one of the sweetest and most effortlessly lovely songs in the Tommy McGee canon. The artist himself certainly thought so, because he recorded it a number of times during the 1980s. This essential reissue boasts all of the best versions, starting with the brilliantly produced and performed 1981 original version, which we firmly believe to be one of the greatest cosmic soul tracks of all time. Arguably even better though is the 'Hip-Kik' version from 1986, a jauntier and more rubbery-sounding affair that replaces much of the instrumentation with drum machines and synthesizer sounds. The EP also boasts an instrumental version of this killer re-make nestled on the flip, along with a more laidback 1981 recording, 'Stay With Me'.

  7. Grace Of You (4:24)
  8. Didn't You Know (3:55)
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.

Soul Is My Salvation Chapter 7
  1. Spiritual Souls - "We Came To Show You The Way" (5:11)
  2. Heaven's Sound - "Fire" (3:16)
Review: Tone B Nimble's eight part 7" series is shining a light on some essential gospel, disco, boogie and soul sounds which, when all put together, reveal a beautiful design courtesy of designer Charlotte McCrae. That makes this an extra special collector's piece even before you add the music into the bargain. Chapter 7 is a busting one with Spiritual Souls 1982 jam 'We Came To Show You The Way' layering up hardcore funk rhythms with some early rap vocals that bring the attitude. Reverse it for Heaven's Sound's 1984 gold, 'Fire,' which is an expansive and expressive vocal masterpiece.

Review: New Jersey seasoned vocalist Benny Troy is a familiar figure on the UK Northern Soul scene thanks to his 1975 disco-tinged dance floor classic - I Wanna Give You Tomorrow. From an early age Troy fell in love with R&B music and at 18 he joined a reformed Joey Dee & The Starlighters following in the footsteps of Jimi Hendrix.By the mid-seventies Troy had teamed up with singer/songwriter/producer Billy Terrell who recorded him on his own composition -I've Always Had You- for De-Lite Records, a superb slice of proto-disco and modern soul. The song was a hit for De-Lite and heralded the now legendary album Tearin' Me To Pieces featuring the track released here...I Wanna Give You Tomorrow...

Love Dream
Cat: FL 009. Rel: 12 Oct 20
  1. Love Dream (4:21)
  2. High Voltage (3:35)
Review: Jimmy 'James' Shaw and his wife Maureen were collectively known as Unity, and were backed by eight piece NYC funk band Downbeats. It is these people being this 1968 slice of smooth R&B and bubbly funk that is now reissued by Fantasy Love. It's the sort of superbly tender and heart aching slow motion soul that will sound good until forever. 'High Voltage' is a more upbeat funk cut powered by deriving rhythms and big horns. Unity & The Downbeats would continue to tour the East Coast until the end of the 70s when they disbanded and left a fine legacy of great singles.
