Chakachas – 1972 – Chakachas

The coolest, funkiest, and most soulful set ever issued by Chakachas – a record that’s way different than most of their Latin-based music – with a strong American funk vibe all the way through! There’s still lots of percussion in the mix, but it’s often…

Bill Brandon – On the Rainbow Road: The Muscle Shoals and Birmingham Sessions

One of Southern Soul’s most criminally underrated and unsung heroes, Bill Brandon cut some of the genre’s finest singles for a host of labels in the late ’60s and early ’70s. His full-throttled, raw vocal style – somewhat reminiscent of Johnnie Taylor – makes all…

Dionne Warwick ‎- 1963 – Presenting Dionne Warwick

Most pop-rock albums of the early 1960s were not conceived of as long-playing recordings, instead throwing on a hit or two with a bunch of quickly recorded filler. But while several of the songs on Presenting Dionne Warwick did show up on her early singles,…

Touch – 1977 – Energizer

Wonderfully tight grooves from Touch – a group who step out here with their debut album, but who had been playing for years on a variety of other studio work! The core combo is wonderful – lots of choppy guitar over the tight bass and…

Patti Labelle – Miss Patti’s Christmas

In many ways, Patti LaBelle is perfectly suited for a holiday album.  Her voice, at once both traditional and expressive, has enough Gospel in it to make it fit the spiritual nature of the music and enough sass to make it all sound wonderfully contemporary. …

Frederick Knight – 1977 – Knight Kap

Frederick Knight has the thankless pop monicker of being a ‘one-hit wonder’, scoring huge in 1973 with the catchy “I’ve Been Lonely for So Long”. Soul buffs like myself, however, know that Knight was more than that. Much more. A prolific writer, musician, producer and…
