Review: Get ready for more extended breaks fun with this new edit from the popular Breaks & Beats bootleg 45 series. Unknown cut and paste masters are behind these two special editions, the first of which tackles Brother Soul's 'Cookies' and flips it into a driving funk tune with big, rousing horns and subtle funk riffs. It's a tasteful banger to pump any party and on the flip comes the more subtle and jazz tinged Ramsey Lewis tune 'Back In The USSR.' Noodling keys leave wispy arias in their wake as the bristling rhythm section powers along below.

Review: Awesome sulltry Japanese only cover version of Roy Ayers annual summer anthem.Essential dubbed out bliss on the flipside.Limited stocks !Second time around for Robert 'Dubwise' Browne's sweet and sweltering reggae cover of Roy Ayers classic 'Everybody Loves The Sunshine', which appeared and disappeared from record stores in double-quick time earlier in the year. If you missed out then, we'd recommend taking a listen, because it offers the perfect fusion of leisurely, organic reggae grooves, spacey synths, twinkling pianos, super-soulful lead vocals from Browne and brilliant backing vocals from an all-female collective of singers. It also comes with a deliciously horizontal, spaced-out dub version on the flip - a revision that features even more intergalactic synth squiggles amongst the head-nodding grooves and delay-laden vocal snippets.

  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.'

Nation Song
Cat: P 74502. Rel: 19 Jan 21
  1. Nation Song (3:32)
  2. Groovin' At The Night Club (4:42)
Review: Burton Inc is perhaps not one of the better-known soul bands of the late 1970s. Formed by married couple Charles and Barbara Burton and featuring their son Tire amongst the backing musicians, the band recorded and released one album, 1976's L.A Will Make You Pay $$$, on their own private press imprint. It's from that set that these two tracks are taken. A-side 'Nation Song' is a glossy, slow-motion call for global unity featuring the twin attractions of incredible horn arrangements and spacey synthesizers (not to mention a fine lead vocal from Barbara), while flipside 'Groovin At The Night Club' is a slightly more up-tempo affair rich in jazzy guitar flourishes, fluid bass guitar and more incredible horn sounds.

  1. Terry Callier - "Ordinary Joe" (4:14)
  2. Jerry Butler - "Ordinary Joe" (3:26)
Review: On the latest edition of their excellent Soul Essentials series, Outta Sight has decided to bring together two versions of 'Ordinary Joe', a seemingly perennial favourite written by the late, great Terry Callier. His celebrated 1972 recording - all bold, sing-along choruses, organ stabs, jangling piano and lolloping grooves - breezes its way across side A, while Jerry Butler's earlier version, laid to tape in 1970, sits on side B. His version is much more expansive and musically detailed than Callier's take, with superb production from Gamble & Huff and some brilliant orchestral arrangements courtesy of Donny Hathaway. Both versions are, or course, incredible.

  1. Try Walking In My Shoes (3:20)
  2. Midnight Shingaling (3:15)
Review: Charles Dickens Records makes its bow with a first record from Marvin Cotterell, a big lunged soul singer in whom the spirit of Northern Soul lives large. His first tune 'Try Walking In My Shoes' was written by Clive Scott and Ian Levine, the legendary Blackpool Mecca resident and pivotal Northern Soul DJ, so its credentials are unquestionable. 'Try Walking In My Shoes' is the attention grabbing a-side with its slick, high speed rhythm section and big horn stabs, but 'Midnight Shingaling' makes a more lasting impression - the Motown tambourines, the swinging drums, the constantly uplifting arrangement - it's an impossibly feel good tune that you cannot resist but dance to.

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: Some four years after making his debut with crossover soul gem 'Love Can Last Forever' - the first release on occasional Timmion Records offshoot Styleart, no less -Fred (real name Frederik Lof) finally returns for round two. This time, he's joined forces with Timmion's in-house revivalist 60s soul and funk band, Cold Diamond & Mink, who return to base following a surprise outing on San Francisco's Ubiqiuty Records. A-side 'Sweet Thing' lives up to its title, with Lof's slick, high-register vocals rising above a deliciously positive backing track rich in hazy horns, sweeping strings, and a nostalgic soul groove. Over on the flip you'll find instrumental number 'My Baby's Outta Sight', which appears to be a languid, vocal-free take on the sublime A-side.

Stay Don't Go
  1. Stay, Dont Go (4:13)
  2. Stay, Dont Go (instrumental) (4:12)
Review: Mike James Kirkland is an American soul and rhythm & blues original. He's best known for his early 1970s albums on Bryan Records, Hang On in There and Doin' It Right, but he continues to perform and record to this day. Pre-pandemic, Ubiqiuty Records and Timmion Records joined forces to get him in the studio with the latter's house band, Cold Diamond & Mink. 'Stay Don't Go' is the one of a number of simultaneously released singles by the Kirlland/Cold Diamond combo. It sees him adding his distinctive, life-affirming vocals to a typically breezy, Hammond-and-horn-heavy backing track from the classic soul revivalists, in the process creating a timeless modern soul anthem.

Review: Pre-pandemic, Ubiquity Records helped Timmion Records house band Cold Diamond & Mink get into the studio with American soul original Mike James Kirkland, whose two early 1970s have long been favourites of serious soul-heads. The result is a string of new singles, of which 'Closer' is one of the strongest (admittedly in a very strong bunch). Kirkland is at his smooth and seductive best singing tales of love over a typically classic-sounding Cold Diamond and Mink backing track (think hazy horns, languid grooves and glistening guitars). As usual with the Finnish combo's releases, you'll find their impeccable instrumental take on side B.

Review: Jesse James links up with the Soul Junction label to offer up a previously unreleased version of his '(The Girl In) Clinton Park' which is best known from its 1974 version, recorded by Masterplan. The original was written at a time three years previous when James was disillusioned with major labels but undeterred. It was also thought to be lost until the artist was digging through his possessions during the covid-19 lockdown and happened upon it. It's a lush bit of happy soul music that will brighten up any day. Flip over for his cover version of the Terry Callier/Larry Wade composition 'Just As Long As We're In Love'.

  1. Everybody Needs Lovin Nows The Time (3:23)
  2. Hey Look At Me (3:32)
Review: The tenth release on Fantasy Love takes us back to the Spring of 1978 and Miami Sound Studios, where Aaron McCarthy Junior AKA Jelly had been lending a hand with the recording of Herman Kelly's now celebrated album, 'Percussion Explosion'. 'Everybody Needs Lovin, Now's the Time' was demo'd for that album but never completed; instead, McCarthy joined forces with producer Thomas Fundora to record a tweaked version, featuring his own lead vocals, which was then released on the latter's obscure, small-run label. Here reissued for the first time, the track is a pleasingly celebratory slab of Miami soul that comes backed by 'Hey Look at Me', a sugary, eyes-closed love ballad with similarly fine Floridian instrumentation.

Review: There's much to admire about this first solo outing in two years from rising soul-jazz star Allysha Joy, which sees her appear on DJ Gilla's First Word label for the very first time. Check first superb opener 'Watercolours', an opaque and drowsy chunk of horizontal neo-soul bliss rich in warming instrumentation, before admiring the more up-tempo, jazz-fired fuzziness of 'Light it Again', where the Australian's confident vocal performance rides a backing track that reminded us a little of Dego and Kaidi Tatham's 2000 Black operation. Elsewhere, 'Batter' is a slow and elastic slab of broken soul, while closing cut 'Mardi' brilliantly joins the dots between jazz, jazz-funk and broken beat.

Review: Toronto vocalist Maya Killtron (real name Maya Chilton) is a valued member of the Love Touch family. 'Fired Up' is her second release for the Canadian label - her first, 'Found You', dropped in late 2019 - and once again sees her join forces with producer Gil Musada of Circle Research and The Precious Lo's fame. In its' A-side full vocal form, the track is a gloriously colourful and celebratory slab of early '80s boogie revivalism that's so accurately executed that it genuinely sounds like it could have been made and released in 1983. That instrumental - all vibrant synthesizer sounds, squeezable bass, clipped guitar riffs, sweeping (synth) strings and unfussy drum machine beats - can be admired in full on the flip.

Review: After some time off, The Preservation Project label is back with a very limited re-issue of The Larks's - a U.S. vocal group from Philly - overlooked stunner 'Sleepless Nights', an incredibly soulful 7" from the 60s. It's a track with soaring vocals and a driving backbeat that gets enriched by some lush harmonies that all add up to a soul classic. The vocals muse on heartbreak and insomnia and really hit home. 'For The Love Of Money' on the B-side is a second serving of the same lush soul sound that will swell your heart.

Review: California Soul queen Tiombe Lockhart returns to Mother Tongue with a special follow up to her The Aquarius Years album. Both tracks get special remix treatment, first up it is jazz man Christian Scoot who serves up a super pained, late night and spiritual remix where the beats are heavy hearted and the sax beautifully tragic. Intergalactic ace Carlos Nino then works with Nate Mercereau & Jamael Dean on the flip to make the tune into a steamy and sensuous neo-soul lullaby. The vocal harmonies are enough to send shivers down your spine.

Review: Daptone does a brilliantly job of serving up new soul sounds that are rich with the sound of yesterday. They utterly authentic tunes that you'd be sure were 40 odd years old if you didn't know otherwise, and one of the many jewels in the label's crown is the Menahan Street Band. Here they're back to their best with a tidy 7" of heart aching blue eyed instrumental soul. 'Midnight Morning' is forlorn but hopefully with its sorrowful trumpets and psyched out guitar riffs while 'Stepping Through Shadow' goes super slow. The horns hang heavy in the air and the tinkling keys are heart broken.

Review: We're firmly convinced that the A-side of this sneaky seven-inch from Mushi 45 main man Mister Mushi borders on genius. Entitled "Hard Lifetime", it sees the Japanese DJ/producer pepper a killer hip-hop-meets funk groove - all tight horn blasts, addictive drum breaks and jazzy soul guitar riffs - with elements of Mr Byrne's celebrated vocal from Talking Heads classic "Once in a Lifetime". The whole thing is wonderfully infectious, toe-tapping and hip-wiggling, breathing new life into one of music's most familiar tunes (and, for the record, the production is so good that Byrne's vocal sounds like it was tailor-made for the backing track). You'll find the Mushi one's fine instrumental take, shorn of all T Heads references, tucked away on the flipside.

Review: On her previous seven-inch singles, Japanese singer Nayutah has delivered material that sits somewhere between the smooth '80s soul of Sade, and the more organic, loose-limbed sound of turn-of-the '80s jazz-funk. On Ryuhei The Man's vocal edit of 'Kimiomitsukete', she explores the latter sound more than the former, with sweet, soulful choruses, stirring synth-strings and fluid jazz piano solos rising above a warming, pleasingly live-sounding groove. Turn to the flip for the 'Exclusive R&B Version', a rework that places the same gorgeous instrumentation and vocals around amore head-nodding, turn-of-the-90s R&B beat.

This "45" boasts two tasty cuts from that set. On the A-side you'll find 'Dreaming Our Lives Away', a heady crossover soul/funk tune whose reverb-laden female vocals, punchy horn lines and tactile grooves should appeal to all serious '70s soul heads. Over on the flip you'll find starry-eyed, loved-up slow jam 'A Feeling Inside', a no less potent but far more laidback affair.

Two years ago they hit the heights with a fine debut album on P-Vine and now they've become an integral part of Toronto's Love Touch Records family. 'More Than Friends' is sparse, soulful and, frankly, superb, with Masuda and guest vocalist Maylee Todd performing a pitch-perfect duet atop a crunchy hip-hop soul beat rich in colourful boogie synths and one of the most squelchy, G-funk style basslines we've ever heard. Flip to the B-side to savour the pair's brilliant beat in full via the similarly essential Instrumental Mix.

Review: The two tracks showcased originally featured on two separate 1967 seven-inch singles by Fred Ramirez, a self-taught Latin-jazz musician and bandleader who had a passion for recording salsa, rumba and mambo-influenced covers of soul and funk hits of the day. Both records are extremely difficult to find these days, in part because collectors rarely part with their cherished copies. The A-side version of Sam & Dave classic 'Hold On, I'm Coming' is simply superb, with Ramirez new arrangement including ear-catching Latin percussion, rousing horns and fluid style piano solos. Over on the flip Ramirez and his band interpret 1960s jazz standard 'Coming Home Baby', delivering a version that sounds like a cross between gangster movie big-band jazz, and Ramsey Lewis classic 'Wade in the Water'. Ace!

Review: 2020 has been a hugely productive year for Neil Anderson, the vintage reggae, ska and soul loving producer behind the Original Gravity label. Here he rounds off the year via a new single from The Regulators, one of the label's most reliable revivalist reggae combos. The headline attraction here is undoubtedly the skanking cover of Oasis's Britpop smash 'Don't Look Back in Anger', which we're sure will annoy Noel Gallagher no end. Built around a rocksteady groove replete with trademark organ sounds and lazy trumpet and trombone solos, it's a cheeky but brilliantly executed cover. Over on the flip they deliver a more faithful cover of Freddie McKay's 1967 rocksteady standard 'Love is a Treasure'. It's good, but sadly lacks the A-side's "wow" factor.

Subtitled 'Lesson 1', it sees Smoove stitch together snatches of tracks sampled by De La Soul (or more specifically, Prince Paul) on the peerless Three Feet High and Rising album, throwing in all manner of well-known vocal snippets previously used by Steinski and others. He flips the script on B-side 'Hall & Soul', sneakily blending elements of De La Soul classic 'Say No Go' with one of the tracks that it sampled, blue-eyed soul favourite 'I Can't Go For That'.

Review: Izipho Soul once again link up with Sound of Superbad here on a super smooth and seductive funk 7". This one raises the bar even in comparison to the super nice 'I Want Cha' last time out. Chicago-based singer extraordinaire Robert IMtume Owens is the man who offers up his beautifully buttery tones, which are layered over nice classy drums and warm synths, with trumpets and strings all adding ear golden texture. The 'S.O.S. Vibe Mix' on the flip is a heavier jam thanks to the more direct percussion, but with everything else also turned up it's still a super lush tune with those vocals doing plenty of great work.

Looking For A Place

Review: More rare, hard-to-find treasure from Athens of the North offshoot Ocean of Tears. The tracks showcased here were first featured on the sole single from obscure Mississippi garage band the Spyres and credited vocalist Mark Prewitt, a 1967 release that has been all but impossible to find ever since. The track order has been reversed this time round in order to showcase original B-side 'Looking For a Place', a heart-breaking slice of evocative, slow-motion soul slightly influenced by British beat music of the period. Speaking of British beat music, turn to the flip for original A-side 'Baby Let Me Take You Home', a cheery, organ-heavy cover of the Animals song of the same name.

Review: Back in 2010 composer and Latin jazz specialist Claudio Passavanti put together a scaled-down ensemble of Latin musicians and percussionists to record a salsa cover version of the Jackson Sisters disco classic "I Believe In Miracles". The seven-inch single was a riproaring success, with jazz and Afro-Latin DJs around the world turning it into a bona fide scene anthem. Happily, Passavanti has decided to reissue it on red vinyl to celebrate the track's tenth birthday. It's a superb cover all told and, somewhat surprisingly, "I Believe In Miracles" actually works really well as a Salsa record. Full of fiery horns, sing-along, Boogaloo style vocals and infectious percussion, we actually prefer it to the over-played Jackson Sisters take. Recommended!
