Sam & Dave – 1967 – Soul Men

Sam & Dave, the Black Gladiators, had upstaged the music scene with blasting gutbucket Soul anthems such as “Hold On! I’m Comin‘”, “You Got Me Hummin‘” and “Said I Wasn’t Gonna Tell Nobody” in 1966… A year later, riding high on the success of the…

Tim Maia – 1970 – Tim Maia

The incredible first album by Tim Maia, Brazil’s greatest soul star in the 70s, and for good reason too – given that Tim was one of the few who could match the depth of American soul and funk at the time! Yet the music here…

Jean Carn – 1978 – Happy To Be With You

One of Jean’s classic Philly albums, recorded after she left Doug Carn, and started to make records as a solo artist. The record’s got stellar production by Gamble & Huff and Dexter Wansel, and features a nice mix of up-tempo cuts and mellow ones. With…

Ohio Players – 1973 – Ecstasy

The Ohio Players’ last album for Westbound, ‘Ecstasy’, shows the group already moving toward more commercial terrain. This was mostly evident through the swapping of drummers; heavy hitter Greg Webster was replaced by the more refined James ‘Diamond’ Williams during these sessions. But it still…

Ohio Players ‎- 1972 – Pain

“Pain” is a classic slab of raw, fatback funk, with Greg Webster’s thick in-the-pocket drumming and Marshall Jones elastic bass lines. Mostly an instrumental, with Junie Morrison adding a few lyrics and a whole lot of catchy hollers, all bandmembers get their moment in the…

Ohio Players ‎- 1972 – Pleasure

‘Pleasure’ is a raw, funk-filled album featuring the Ohio Players at their most unpolished. And like on ‘Pain’, the opening track here too is reserved for a lengthy, loose jam session with sparse lyrics. “Pleasure” rides a ferocious, rocking groove mainly due to Sugarfoot’s rollicking…

Afrodisia ‎- 1980 – Elephant Sunrise

Afrodisia’s highly collectible album ‘Elephant Sunrise’ from 1980 on Comma. Afrodisia were combination of US soldiers with local musicians from Worms, Germany that were formed in 1978 and recorded two albums during their years together with ‘Elephant Sunrise’ being the only one that was actually…

Darondo – Listen to My Song: Music City Sessions

Back in 70s Oakland, California, streetwise hipster William Darondo Pulliam was a funky singer-songwriter who could also swing the sweetest soul west of Al Green. His handful of idiosyncratic 45 releases are crowned by the heartbreaking sound of his 1973 local hit `Didn’t I‘, on…

Prince Phillip Mitchell – 1979 – Top Of The Line

A classic set of smooth 70s soul from an under-recognized genius! Phillip Mitchell is a bit like his Atlantic Records contemporary Sam Dees – in that he wrote a lot of material for other singers, recorded a handful of singles, and worked mostly in the…

Rare Earth – 1969 – Get Ready

The first really major album from Rare Earth – issued on their own self-named subsidiary of Motown! The set’s a perfect blend of the rich undercurrents of the heady Detroit scene of the late 60s – at one level a tripped-out rock record with styles…

Esther Phillips – 1972 – Alone Again, Naturally

One of the deepest soul sets from Esther Phillips’ 70s years on Kudu Records – a set with some nicely gritty grooves and a surprisingly earthy feel at times – especially when compared to some of her other albums of the time! Backings are by…

Freda Payne – 1974 – Payne & Pleasure

This is Freda’s first recording after she left Invictus. It contains the R&B single It’s Yours to Have which I just love. I Get Carried Away is a beautiful ballad which should have been a big hit. Don’t Wanna be Left out in Rain is…

The Facts Of Life – 1977 – A Matter Of Fact

A Matter of Fact is the second and last album by soul/disco trio Facts of Life. Produced by Millie Jackson, the album features a cover of Larry Santos‘ pop tune, “We Can’t Hide It Anymore“. “A producer usually doesn’t write liner notes, but never being…

Al Wilson ‎- 1973 – Weighing In

Al Wilson weighs in with another 70s classic, a set that’s poised nicely between the audacious soul of “The Snake“, and some of the mellower moments of cuts like “Show & Tell“! Neither of those hits are on here, but that’s a good thing –…

Ted Taylor – 1972 – Taylor Made

Oklahoma-born Ted Taylor, the man with the haunting, gospel-inspired falsetto voice, had come a long way before cutting this exuberantly funky LP in 1972. Having been a member of the Cadets (scoring a #4 R&B smash in 1956 with “Stranded In the Jungle“), Taylor had…

If I may ask-
Kenny Gamble (of PIR fame) cut an album late 60s, early 70s; I’m not sure of the title.
