The next big coup on Floating Point's imprint Melodies International!Deep in South Chicago, a band of four brothers raised on doo-wop and flea-market instruments made a record during the mid 70s that did not only mark a seminal point in their youthful careers, but would go on to become a true collector’s favourite. Open Soul is quite simply one of the best examples of raw, stripped down soul in its purest form, and for this reason has become a highly sought after rarity. The album has been carefully reproduced and will be officially available for the first time in 40 Years, this time accompanied by an interview with one of the original brothers, various Tomorrow's People memorabilia and a number of other contributions from Melodies' friends around the world.This reissue by Tomorrow's People is released in collaboration with Timothy Burton. The master and multitrack tapes were destroyed over 20 years ago and so this LP has been restored and mastered from multiple copies of the original pressing.

Die "Gleisdreieck" Vinyl Edition ist als Doppel-LP (12", 180g, Virgin Vinyl) mit 17 Titeln erhältlich. Dazu gibt es einen MP3 Download Voucher für 17 Titel plus 9 weiteren Bonustracks und das als exklusive und auf 500 Stück limitierte hhv.de Colored Vinyl Auflage in Orange.Joy Denalane hat deutschen Soul erfunden und damit deutschen Pop geprägt. Sie hat mit Freundeskreis und Max Herre gearbeitet und ihre ganz eigene Stimme gefunden. Ihr neues Album führt sie zurück nach Berlin, zurück ans „Gleisdreieck“, das sich plötzlich auch als Symbol lesen lässt: eine Gabelung ins Ungewisse, in die Vergangenheit und die Zukunft. “Ich habe mich gefragt: Was sind die Gedanken, die mich gerade wirklich umtreiben? Was habe ich zu sagen? Wer bin ich eigentlich?” Auf diesen Fragen gründen die Songs auf “Gleisdreieck”. Gemeinsam mit ihren Songwriter-Kollegen Maxim, Tua, Jasmin Shakeri, Alex Freund, Ali Zuckowski, David Jürgens, Martin Fliegenschmidt und Max Herre hat Joy Denalane für “Gleisdreieck” einige der prägendsten Erlebnisse ihrer jüngeren Vergangenheit aufgearbeitet. Der klassische Joy-Sound, mit seinen Wurzeln im Gospel, Afrobeat und 70s-Soul, wird auf “Gleisdreieck” ergänzt und stellenweise ersetzt von einem entwaffnend eleganten Future R&B. Die Produktion von KAHEDI (alias Samon Kawamura, Max Herre und Roberto Di Gioia), Tua, Alex Freund, Philipp Niessen, Ali Zuckowski, David Jürgens, Ghanaian Stallion, KitschKrieg, FLY und Ben Bazzazian ist unbedingt im Moment und schwebt doch über den Trends und Trendchen, die einem Woche für Woche in den Feed schwappen. Immer wieder tauchen auf dem Album auch Rap-Strophen auf, wie flüchtige Begegnungen in einer überfüllten Nacht. Der junge Berliner Chima Ede ist ebenso zu hören wie Deutschlands kommender Trap-King Rin, die talentierte Hamburgerin Eunique, Tua, Megaloh, Ahzumjot, Marteria. Sie alle ergänzen Joys Geschichte/n mit ihren persönlichen Perspektiven und verorten sie noch klarer im Hier und Jetzt.

For the past four decades, a growing cult of soul music collectors have sought two obscure LPs and a handful of extremely rare 45s released on the vanity record label LAD Productions, Inc. between the late seventies and the mid eighties by the mysterious South Side Chicago singer/song writer Larry Dixon.Larry's raw songs capture the transition from R&B to boogie-down as disco was rapidly becoming extinct.They also perfectly illustrate Larry’s ability to overcome his environment and discrimination, transcended by his determination to write and produce music. With the support of his faithful musicians, Larry's success was only hindered by lack of airplay and promotion, but his talent shines through.This is the story of Larry Dixon, his label LAD Productions, Inc., and his friends and family throughout four decades of music in Chicago’s toughest neighborhoods.Jerome Derradji is proud to reactivate Past Due Records - the boogie funk division of Still Music to release this fantastic archive – what many consider to be the Holy Grail - of Chicago Funk, Boogie and Soul.

“Lovin’ Mighty Fire” is Howard Williams’ third Japanese music compilation for the Ace Records house of labels - this time, for BGP International. Assembled in between his job as a record distributor and his monthly Japan Blues show for NTS radio, the first two have taken a look at the late 50s for a blast of Japanese rockabilly (“Nippon Rock’n’Roll” CDWIKD 313), then the 60s and 70s for a romp in Japanese surf music (“Nippon Guitars” CDWIKD 297). Following his retrospective of jazz singer Maki Asakawa for Honest Jon’s, this new outing searches for the soul music of Japan, from the early 70s to the early 80s. Japan has long been known as the final destination for many a collectible soul record. Yet, who suspected that some fine soul grooves were recorded for the domestic market, from ballads, to funk and disco? Strangely enough, some of the busiest writers and producers in this field came from a late 60s rock band, Happy End, but on listening to their collaborations, their rhythmic, soulful feel is immediately apparent.The bluesy funk of Lily; the soul-diva brilliance of Minako Yoshida – represented here in both slow-grind mode and epic disco; the maverick genius of Haruomi Hosono; the lively songstress Yasuko Agawa; and the sultry steaminess of Mari Natsuki, and more. This album finally plants a Japanese flag firmly on the global map of soul.

After more than three decades as a lost classic, the debut album by Washington DC soul/gospel outfit Enlightment is finally receiving a proper release. Founded by ordained bishop Larry H. Jordan and his brother-in-law Frank Tinsley in the early 1980s, Enlightment was among the first groups to fuse modern R&B production with gospel themes. Unfortunately, the independent release of their 1984 debut album “Faith Is The Key” was torpedoed when both their distributor and pressing plant went out of business. Only a handful of “Faith Is the Key” LPs ever made it into the public’s hands.As a result, the record became a holy grail for collectors. It was re-discovered around the year 2000, when copies started selling online for over $2000. While disappointed in the record’s lack of immediate impact, the group’s founders are not surprised by its recent revival. “It’s just good music with a spiritual message, that’s why it stood the test of time,” says Tinsley. “We made sure we had very crystal clear production,” adds Jordan. Thanks to an official vinyl re-release via Nature Sounds with worldwide distribution, listeners can now experience that innovation first-hand.

94 East has become a Minneapolis Sound buzzword owing to the fact that Brooklyn transplant and bandleader Pepe Willie hired a 16-year-old Prince Rogers Nelson to add lead guitar to a bundle of his originals at Minneapolis’s Cookhouse Studios in the winter of 1975. Known colloquially as “The Cookhouse 5,” session highlight “If You See Me” makes its vinyl debut here and will also be featured on the forthcoming compilation Purple Snow: Forecasting The Minneapolis Sound. The b-side, "Games,” is a 7inch exclusive.

The Delfonics is the quintessential sweet-soul group. Hailing from Philadelphia, the crew formed in the mid-'60s, with the definitive original lineup as leadvocalist and songwriter William Hart, his brother Wilbert Hart, and mutual high-school friend Randy Cain (later replaced by Major Harris). With the help ofproducer/arranger Thom Bell—and with William's signature falsetto—the Delfonics set the tone for all other sweet-soul groups that would follow.Los Angeles producer/composer Adrian Younge envisioned a modern-day Delfonics album and pitched the idea to William Hart, who hopped a plane fromPhilly to L.A. and began work on a new album. Younge helped to reshape the Delfonics by bringing on board two excellent young vocalists, Loren Odenand Saudia Mills—as well as Om'Mas Keith on the single "Stop and Look (And You Have Found Love)"—to work alongside William.From the very beginning, it was Younge's intention to create an old-school Delfonics vibe but offer a very hip-hop-informed perspective. There aredistinguishing musical elements that Delfonics fans will recognize, like the electric sitar guitar, the French horn, string arrangements, and the tympani. Now the instrumentals are finally available.

Here's a revamped reissue of an extremely rare Italian library album from 1970. Arawak is one of the many pseudonyms that Luciano Simoncini used as a composer of film scores and background music for radio and television in Italy. This album stayed under the radar until hip-hop performer Quasimoto (an alter ego of producer Madlib) sampled 'Accade A Harlem' for the 'Suono Libero' series. The laid-back grooves and dreamy atmospheres alternate with more funky sounds to make for a truly unique listening experience.

/ It's Broken ... After two massive reissues, Emotional Rescue have come up with the goods once again, with this remastered reissue of incredibly rare 70s psyche-funk from Bob Chance. Two versions are included: the original 7" version, driven along by a razor-sharp guitar riff and sweetly lamenting lyrics, topped off with weird cosmic synths and galloping rhythm. However, the real gem is the edit entitled "Wild It's Broken" which sharpens the focus of the guitar and adds some serious kick to the drums to create a beefy counterpart to the new age original.

With this soul jazz slammer, Timmion introduces one of the most iconic Finnish contemporary jazzers, Jukka Eskola. Trumpeter Eskola's Soul Trio sounds exactly, what the name suggests, the golden era of mid 1960's soul jazz. The trio, composed of trumpet, organ and drums, delivers a sound that brings to mind classic Prestige recordings by Jack McDuff, Willis Jackson and Gene Ammons.Jukka Eskola started to make a name for himself already in the early 2000's but really gained a reputation as the tireless brass handler on Five Corners Quintet, the post millenial powerhouse of dance floor jazz from Helsinki. Since then he's been grinding hard on the international jazz circuit with his own groups and become the trumpet of choice in almost every jazz combo of note from Finland."Introducing The Soul Trio" and "Martha's New Moment" are both picked from Eskola's upcoming album on Timmion and should please everybody, who can handle their soul infused with jazz or their jazz with some greasy funk touches. Better get your plate ready, the grill is warming up!

Produced and recorded in 1965 during a time when Chicago soul was one of the most influential sounds in R&B.The Dontells entered the studio and cut two tracks that put that sound on full display. The session was led by producer Calvin Carter, world famous Arranger Johnny Pate-along with the cities top musicians. These tracks were never released and have only been heard by a few people until now. The A side “Move On Down the Line” grabs you from the first second the needle drops. A mid tempo love song with a trademark arrangement from Pate and a vocal melody and approach in the style of Chicago’s king of soul, Curtis Mayfield. “There Goes A Fool” is the B side and is a reminder why The Dontells were one of the best groups out of the Windy City. Another brilliant production with a top notch arrangement . Horns, strings, a swinging backbeat and that signature Chicago vocal sound lead by the sweet harmonies of Nate, Leroy, Manuel & Ralph. This is no doubt a 60’s soul classic in 2017!

Originally scheduled to be the second Funkadelic 45, ‘Can’t Shake It Loose’ was cancelled before release. The song had been a single (and northern soul classic) by Pat Lewis, whilst the Supremes had recorded it for Motown. It’s fascinating to hear George and the boys’ treatment released on 45 for the first time. It is backed by one of the great breakbeats – Funkadelic’s actual second single ‘I’ll Bet You’. The opening break sounds amazing on this newly mastered 45.

By far one of the most outrageous performers of the early years of rock, prone to emerging from coffins on stage, with a flaming skull named Henry as his constant companion, Screamin' Jay was an insanely theatrical figure long before it was even remotely acceptable. His 1958 debut, At Home, featuring his legendary 'I Put A Spell On You,' along with surreal hits like 'Hong Kong,' 'Take Me Back To The Boot And Saddle,' or his wild-ass reinventions of old standards like 'I Love Paris' and 'Deep Purple' is a carefully arranged yet gritty, Ray Charles-gone-crazy styled, full band rhythm and blues masterpiece, filled with enough howls and groans to send chills down your spine. Reissued on 180 gram LP with download code.

As music fans know, James Brown wasn’t just the greatest funkand soul singer the world has ever seen – he was also a musicalvisionary and businessman, who surrounded himself withgeniuses who made him better and pushed him further.From horn masters Maceo Parker and Pee Wee Ellis to vocalistsLyn Collins and Bobby Byrd, Brown was a musical A & R master,restless and always looking for the next big thing. Most times, thatwould manifest in the latest James Brown smash under his ownname. But not always. His stable of talent was overflowing in the‘60s and ‘70s, and, thankfully, the tape machine in his studio wasalways rolling.Originally released in 1988, during the era of hip-hop’s golden ageof sampling, it’s no surprise that just about every note heard in thisincredible collection has been used on not one but multiple rapclassics. Which, at the time, was proof of Brown’s (and his crew’s)staying power. But we’re almost three decades beyond those daysnow, and it has lost none of its musical potency.Diving deeper into the vaults than the also-incredible Part 1 of theFunky People series, there is not a weak track in the bunch. Movingbeyond well-known JBs cuts, things get interesting from the get-gowith Bobby Byrd’s monumental groover “I Know You Got Soul.”Hank Ballard and Marva Whitney also enter the fray, leading theway to Myra Barnes’ emotional and powerful “Message From TheSoul Sisters (Parts 1 & 2)” and Lyn Collins’ slow, smoldering coverof Isaac Hayes’ “Do Your Thing,”Politics even get the funky soul treatment, with Fred Wesley & TheJBs’ “You Can Have Watergate But Gimme Some Bucks And I’ll BeStraight” and “I’m Paying Taxes, But What Am I Buying?” And itshould not be overlooked that Maceo & The Macks’ instrumentalworkout “Soul Power ‘74” even features a proto-sampling snippetfrom MLK’s “I’ve Been To The Mountaintop” speech from 1968.This is another amazing collection of James Brown’s funky friends,without one second of filler, brought to you as a glorious 2-LPgatefold by your friends at Get On Down.

Until he was about 20, Texas-born Melvin Sparks was a rhythm & blues guitarist, backing Jackie Wilson, Curtis Mayfield and Marvin Gaye as a member of The Upsetters. But Sparks gave up his seat on The Upsetters' bus in New York City, where a chance introduction to George Benson led him to a place in soul jazz history. Melvin played and recorded with Lou Donaldson, Leon Spencer, Bernard Purdie, Jack McDuff, Jimmy McGriff, Idris Muhammad, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Charles Earland, Grover Washington Jr., Reuben Wilson and so many more. Even during the quietest years of soul-jazz Melvin stayed relevant through hip-hop and r&b; a quick search at WhoSampled turns up more than 150 samples of his funky chicken scratch. And Melvin's legacy is heard in contemporary soul/funk bands like The New Mastersounds, Soulive and The Greyboy Allstars, all of whom he also guested with several times before his early departure from this realm in 2011.This release documents Melvin's final band just months before his death. Organist Beau Sasser and drummer Bill Carbone had been working with Sparks for several years, and, despite the power dynamic - they were in their early 30s, Melvin an elder-statesmen of the genre - the unit was sharp, relaxed and performed Melvin's music with a jovial spirit. The trio played the Burlington, VT club Nectar's regularly, but this night featured two "onlys." Per the recommendation of Nectar's agent they used the "Grippo Horns," the only time Sparks used a horn section in the last several years of his life, and they allowed a multitrack recording of the show. Both were strong decisions.The tracks on this album, lovingly mixed by guitarist, producer and Melvin Sparks fan Eddie Roberts, demonstrate that Melvin played as well in the final months of his life as at any time. Sparks counts "Whip! Whop!" off at what he said The Upsetters called a "showtime tempo," and peppers it, as well as most of the album, with quotes from jazz standards, pop songs and cartoon themes, all woven effortlessly into the bebop-funk dialect he helped create. He unfolds amiable melodies, patiently and methodically, through his several-minute lead on "Breezin'." And Sparks is audibly uplifted by the Grippo Horns helping him perform his 1973 arrangement of "Ain't No Woman" for the first time in decades.

Joy Denalane hat deutschen Soul erfunden und damit deutschen Pop geprägt. Sie hat mit Freundeskreis und Max Herre gearbeitet und ihre ganz eigene Stimme gefunden. Ihr neues Album führt sie zurück nach Berlin, zurück ans „Gleisdreieck“, das sich plötzlich auch als Symbol lesen lässt: eine Gabelung ins Ungewisse, in die Vergangenheit und die Zukunft. “Ich habe mich gefragt: Was sind die Gedanken, die mich gerade wirklich umtreiben? Was habe ich zu sagen? Wer bin ich eigentlich?” Auf diesen Fragen gründen die Songs auf “Gleisdreieck”. Gemeinsam mit ihren Songwriter-Kollegen Maxim, Tua, Jasmin Shakeri, Alex Freund, Ali Zuckowski, David Jürgens, Martin Fliegenschmidt und Max Herre hat Joy Denalane für “Gleisdreieck” einige der prägendsten Erlebnisse ihrer jüngeren Vergangenheit aufgearbeitet. Der klassische Joy-Sound, mit seinen Wurzeln im Gospel, Afrobeat und 70s-Soul, wird auf “Gleisdreieck” ergänzt und stellenweise ersetzt von einem entwaffnend eleganten Future R&B. Die Produktion von KAHEDI (alias Samon Kawamura, Max Herre und Roberto Di Gioia), Tua, Alex Freund, Philipp Niessen, Ali Zuckowski, David Jürgens, Ghanaian Stallion, KitschKrieg, FLY und Ben Bazzazian ist unbedingt im Moment und schwebt doch über den Trends und Trendchen, die einem Woche für Woche in den Feed schwappen. Immer wieder tauchen auf dem Album auch Rap-Strophen auf, wie flüchtige Begegnungen in einer überfüllten Nacht. Der junge Berliner Chima Ede ist ebenso zu hören wie Deutschlands kommender Trap-King Rin, die talentierte Hamburgerin Eunique, Tua, Megaloh, Ahzumjot, Marteria. Sie alle ergänzen Joys Geschichte/n mit ihren persönlichen Perspektiven und verorten sie noch klarer im Hier und Jetzt. Die „Gleisdreieck“ Vinyl Edition ist als Doppel-LP auf 180g, Virgin Vinyl mit 17 Titeln erhältlich. Dazu gibt es einen MP3 Download Voucher für 17 Titel plus 9 weiteren Bonustracks.

Here's a revamped reissue of an extremely rare Italian library album from 1970. Arawak is one of the many pseudonyms that Luciano Simoncini used as a composer of film scores and background music for radio and television in Italy. This album stayed under the radar until hip-hop performer Quasimoto (an alter ego of producer Madlib) sampled 'Accade A Harlem' for the 'Suono Libero' series. The laid-back grooves and dreamy atmospheres alternate with more funky sounds to make for a truly unique listening experience.

JOB's musical journey started as students at the famed Booker T Washington High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma. United by a shared love of soul music and sweet harmonies, singers James Davis, Ollie Carbin, and singer-songwriter & musician Billy Bruner began to jam together and eventually formed their own band, J.O.B, upon graduation in 1977, setting to work building a reputation by playing local parties, venues and fashion shows. Very quickly the word of mouth on J.O.B became so strong that they were offered a house band gig at North Tulsa's most popular after hours spot, The Point After. During their tenure at the famed late night spot many bigger acts came to see J.O.B when in town. Tulsa's own Gap Band, Chaka Khan, and Bootsy's Rubber band all paying homage to the trio. It's extremely rare to find good quality recordings from local clubs of this era so we were delighted when this ¼ tape turned up in Billy's archive, so sit back and transport yourself back to Saturday evening, 20 August 1977.

Before he was Nigeria's self-proclaimed Mr Lover Boy, Felix Lebarty was an upcoming musician in the country's Edo-Delta region. His big brother, Aigbe, was a legendary Highlife bandleader, but Felix paid his dues playing guitar with Thony Shorby Nwenyi and the Collection of Stars, along with fellow 'star' Mighty Flames bassist, Willy Nfor. Perversely, Girls For Sale was released after Lover Boy, the slick disco album that cemented his place in Nigerian music history. It is a collection of tracks Lebarty made early in his career, when his music was rawer and his pickup lines less sophisticated and less practised. In 'Come True', Lebarty actually admits to a girl that he hasn't got any money. He begs a girl to love him in 'Love Me Kiss Me' and pleads with a rival to give him a break in 'Don't Take My Girl'. He even takes a dig at Aigbe, his more successful sibling, in 'Mr Big Brother'. It's hardly what you'd expect from the disco god behind Lover Boy, who went on to have 19 children with 7 different women. To me, that's what makes Girls For Sale worth checking out. It's gritty, lo-fi and melodic, like The Apostles with a subtle a nod towards the Jackson Five, sung with endearing insecurity. What's not to like about that? - Peter Moore

Ein Quartett aus Norwegen, berstend vor Energie und Selbstbewusstsein. Unbekümmert Old-School und gleichzeitig mit dem schnippenden Finger am Puls der Zeit: Rohey sind eine Soul-Band für das Jahr 2017. Wer die nervösen Synthesizer zum Auftakt von "Can't get this" vernimmt, wird nicht von ungefähr an Stevie Wonder erinnert. Gleichzeitig ist Rohey eine Band, die kaum zeitgemäßer klingen könnte. Sie spielen einen organischen, vor Originalität nur so sprühenden R’n‘B, wie man ihn so zuletzt höchstens von den Australiern von Hiatus Kaiyote gehört hat. Die vier trafen sich am Konservatorium in Trondheim. Keyboarder Ivan Blomqvist bringt einen sehr urbanen, retrofuturistischen Sound mit ein, während Kristian B. Jacobsen (Bass) und Henrik Lødøen (Drums) mit ihrem Spiel ein klassisches Soul-Funk-Fundament legen. Und dann ist da noch die Namensgeberin der Gruppe: Sängerin Rohey Taalah. Mit ihrer grandiosen Stimme transportiert sie die ganze emotionale Komplexität, die von einer guten Soul-Sängerin erwartet wird. Auch die Pop-Künste einer Adele und die Jazz-Fertigkeiten einer Zara McFarlane macht sie sich zu eigen. Rohey haben die Fähigkeit, jederzeit ein funkelndes Dancefloor-Tune aus dem Ärmel zu schütteln. Wenn sie es denn wollen. Ihre erste Single "Is This All There Is" beginnt mit einer Attacke aus Synthesizern und Drums, um dann in einen relaxten Jazz-Groove mit perlenden Keyboards zu verfallen. Die warme Melancholie von Stücken wie "My Dear" und "Now That You Are Free" zeugt von einer bemerkenswerten Reife. Auf Fender Rhodes und Gesang reduziert, zeigen sie das ganze Songwriting-Format der Band. Während ihrer ausgiebigen Tourneen haben Rohey schon auf beinahe jedem wichtigen skandinavischen Jazz-Festival gespielt. Mit der Veröffentlichung von "A Million Things" auf Jazzland Recordings Anfang 2017 werden sie zweifellos auch in südlicheren Gefilden für Furore sorgen. "Rohey's presence was clear. A throwback to the days of a dynamic band with an engaging singer. Music is alive outside the internet and Rohey are keeping it real."- Andy Collins, Scandinavian Soul

Cookin' On 3 Burners are Australia's foremost organ trio joining the dots between funk, soul, boogaloo & jazz. Long time partners Lance Ferguson (guitar), Ivan Khatchoyan (drums) and Jake Mason (organ) have taken their home brew of soulful Hammond get down everywhere from jazz festivals to after hours bars and clubs. Their top notch reputation led to them supporting Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings in Sydney, jamming live with Breakestra and becoming THE in demand band south of the equator. With a musical CV that includes names like Joe Bataan, Alice Russell, Mark de Clive-Lowe and The Quantic Soul Orchestra, as well as the world beating outfit The Bamboos, it's not surprising this latest CO3B album has generated huge interest even prior to its' release. Their first Freestyle album 'Baked, Broiled or Fried' featured the group in a hardcore funk groove but on 'Soul Messin' sees the sound, feel and influences widened further with some quite magical results. Versatile singer Kylie Auldist (Tru Thoughts Recordings) opens proceedings on the deep funk groove of 'Push It Up' but it is the Freestyle 45 'This Girl' (FSR7057) that provides the mellow, beautiful and incredibly catchy vocal highlight of the entire collection, shimmering horns ride over this laid back, future deep soul classic. We don't yet know what Gary Numan will make of CO3B's version of his 80's synth pop hit 'Cars' (CD only) but Jake Masons organ playing (including simultaneously supplying the super funky bass lines via his Hammond foot pedals and left hand) takes this track in a direction no one was expecting! Drummer and top notch singer Fallon Williams provides his gritty, searing voice on 'Hole In My Pocket' and 'Seen Through Your Disguise' sounding very much like US soul legend Robert Moore and the band display their versatility whilst doffing their caps in the direction of The Meters on the numbers 'Dog Wash' and 'Piranha' The down tempo, moody album closer 'The Proving Grounds' (CD only) once again shows the groups expanding musical textures and rounds off 'Soul Messin' the bands most varied and accomplished recording so far.

The fifth in our series of “The Stars Of....” EPs is drawn from the catalogue of Modern Records, UK Kent’s starting point. Of the earlier editions in the series, only “The Stars Of Mirwood” is still available – these limited editions sell out quickly, so don’t delay. Jackie Day’s ‘Before It’s Too Late’ and Vernon Garrett’s ‘If I Could Turn Back The Hands Of Time’ earned UK releases in the 60s and became early soul scene classics for British fans. Mary Love was known and appreciated back then but her Frank Wilson-penned pounder ‘I’ve Gotta Get You Back’ was an import-only job. It was not until the 80s that Johnny Gilliam’s melancholy was appreciated on the big ballad ‘You Make Me Feel Like Someone’. These four great tracks really work together and the cute 60s-style package makes them a must for Kent collectors.

A deep mystery surrounds the movie “Nell’anno della Luna” (In the year of the Moon) and its soundtrack, which was released one year later. A beautiful work that lingers in between swing and melodies, in a fad that was popular a few decades earlier, complemented by some elements of novelty borrowed from beat and rock. The title track, “Alla brasiliana” and “Samba Querida” sound more traditional, while titles like “Afro Swing”, “Underground”, “Beatmania” (all featuring the vocal ensemble I 4+4, led by Nora Orlandi) represent a more adventurous side of this soundtrack.

New LP from Chicago pop/soul outfit The Right Now. Since 2009, the band has toured much of the United States and released two albums, racking up placements in television, national commercials, and the multi-million-selling video game Watch Dogs. Starlight covers musical ground as diverse as the city that spawned TRN: dance beat elation, gritty torch songs, and synth-pop grandeur. Stefanie Berecz's ''classic and contemporary voice'' (Philadelphia Inquirer) sits atop breezy horn lines and intricate arrangements. Dubbed ''the real deal'' (Pittsburgh City Paper) and ''sweet soul satisfaction'' (Nashville Scene), TRN has opened for Fitz & The Tantrums, George Clinton & Parliament/Funkadelic, Bettye LaVette, Lee Fields, and many others; their 2012 release Gets Over You received airplay from Seattle to Ashville and hit the CMJ Top 200 charts.
