I Got Soul : Blaxploitation Mood

photo: 
a propos: 
"I Got Soul " Blaxploitation Mood" - Is the first Soul Music compilation from 'Playoff Records'. Inspired by the Blaxploitation movies, the aim is to showcase tracks taken from these films, as well as other lesser known ones that could easily feature in any movie soundtrack. The 70's follow the troubled period of the civil rights movement and the struggle against segregation. The Afro-American community is searching for new heroes, some they found in music and cinema.Musically we enter a crossroads period, where the vintage R&B sound is gradually replaced by more sophisticated productions (Johnnie Taylor, David Porter…). Artistic creativity is freer and more diverse, this is apparent on these two covers. By using the group 'Undisputed Truth', the producer Norman Whitfield regenerates a piece by British group 'Hot Chocolate'. The addition of wah wah guitars from the version by 'Creative Source' takes this Bill Wither's song to another level. Artists like the "Godfather" James Brown explore a new groove, introducing a drum kick that will become the essence of funk and go on to influence others like 'Sweet' Charles Sherrel & Sir Joe Quaterman. Millie Jackson perpetuates the southern mood in this song, the profound lyrics address social issues . Whereas the Jackson Sisters gave birth to what some consider as one of the first ever Disco cuts. Willie Hutch and Bobby Womack remind us that a song can be both groovy and melodic. Curtis Mayfield brings this selection to an end with his influence as producer with the group 'The Notations', songwriter of this punchy cover version from the 'Sisters Love' and finally performing his all time classic 'Superfly'

Eyes Of Love

photo: 
a propos: 
Incarcerated funk has no right to feel this free. Musical convicts and actual convicts from across the Commonwealth, The Edge Of Daybreak's membership wrote and recorded Eyes Of Love while serving out sentences of six to sixty years. Set to tape inside Powhatan Correctional Center on the outskirts of Richmond, Virginia, these intimate 1979 sessions unlock the prison gates and peer into a collective consciousness concocted by a core of four confined artists. Assembled from distant love ballads and fanciful odes to freedom, Eyes Of Love is a prison letter composed by committee, recorded hastily, and circulated regionally amongst adventurous clientele willing to take a chance on these felonious talents.

Christians Catch Hell: Gospel Roots 1976-79

photo: 
a propos: 
Utterly magnificent, sublimely soulful survey of the Gospel Roots label, subsidiary of the mighty TK Records at the height of the Miami Sound.A&R was co-ordinated by Gospel legends Ira Tucker — from the Dixie Hummingbirds — and Ralph Bass, veteran producer with Savoy, King and Chess. The label was run by Timmy Thomas, who had recently smashed with Why Can’t We Live Together, for another TK spin-off, Glades. Operations were overseen by Henry Stone himself, unlikely King of Disco, who had recorded a young Ray Charles, and pushed forward James Brown. They drew in artists from all over the US, from St. Louis, Columbus, Memphis, Brooklyn, Cabrini Green in Chicago: unknowns like Camille Doughty, reluctant to jeopardise her job at GM (‘Generous Motors’) in Detroit, and huge-sellers like the revered Brooklyn All Stars, who started out on Peacock in 1958.Choral belters, deep ballads, harmony quartets, epic city-blues, gritty funk, powerhouse female soul… Killer-diller Philly like a scorching version of Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes’ Wake Up Everybody; and Jean Austin’s raw Spirit Free, co-written by Ronnie Dyson, produced by Jesse James at Future Gold. Chicago Sound like The Fantastic Family Aires — named after the family’s furniture store on North Cicero, but reminiscent of the Staple Singers at their best — through to the full-blown glory of The Fountain Of Life Joy Choir, led by Marvin Yancy from The Independents, and featuring Natalie Cole… Singers like Versie Mae Gibson, from the Jordans, by rights up there with Irma, Etta and Ree… Bangers 100%-guaranteed to find their way into Theo Parrish sets; and mortal delirium for the prissiest of soul and gospel purists.Beautifully presented, with a 12”-square, full-colour, sixteen-page booklet of photos and original artwork — and truly outstanding notes, including insightful new interviews across the board; mastered at Abbey Road.

Love Is A Hurtin' Thing

photo: 
a propos: 
Finally, Gloria Ann Taylor’s musical output on Selector Sound has been compiled and will be presented in a deluxe triple-gatefold double LP package complete with photos and extensive liner notes. TIP! Soul singer Gloria Ann Taylor has no rags to riches tale to tell. Her story is one of personal sacrifice, failed relationships, and missed opportunity. She was leading a hard knock life before being swept-up by the flash and promise of a marriage and business partnership with a successful record producer. She would be nominated for a Grammy, rub shoulders with James Brown and Bootsy Collins, and turn heads from Motown. But in the end she rejected professional singing, the music business, and the lifestyle that came with it. Thankfully for music lovers, before Gloria closed the doors on her singing career, she left us with some amazing soul songs. Deeply shaded by gospel roots, her haunting sound clearly comes from the gut. Gloria did not fake the funk.Gloria was a partial owner of the Selector Sounds label, along with her husband/producer Walter Whisenhunt (previously a right-hand man to James Brown), and her brother Leonard. They released five Gloria Taylor singles between 1971 and 1977. They also released the three-song Deep Inside You EP, under the name Gloria Ann Taylor and Walter Whisenhunt’s Orchestra. In the studio Whisenhunt would work up a unique musical brew that mixed northern soul with exotic percussion and fuzzy psychedelic guitars. He moved Gloria through a range of tempos and stylings from ballads to disco. Her gritty vocal performance was set to orchestral arrangements creating a juxtaposition of grandeur and solace. The pinnacle of their collaborations has to be the jaw-droppingly epic EP version of “Love Is a Hurting Thing”; a chugging, string-laden disco track, that sounds like proto-Theo Parrish. (excerpt from liner notes by Andrew Jervis)

Fantastic all killer no filler compilation of sun-drenched gems from pop-soul legend Tina Turner.

Also included are outstanding covers of Led Zepplin's 'Whole Lotta Love' and a great extended mix of Ann Peebles-penned 'I Can't Stand The Rain'.

It Takes Two

photo: 
a propos: 
Lynn Williams may not be someone you have heard of but her pedigree is strong. Her father was Hank Ballard (of King and James Brown Fame) and her mother was 60s Miami Radio Personality and dance group leader Vanilla ''Miss Boom Boom'' Williams. Lynn cut 5 Excellent 7"s for various Henry Stone owned Miami labels in the 70s here we present her two most collectable. The first 'It Takes Two' is a smokey deepfunk killer that would cost you £1000 any day of the week for good reason. On the flip "Don't be Surprised" is one of Miami's best ever deep soul records period, a dark serious ballad pulled off with amazing emotion considering her young years at the time of recording.- One of Miami Rarest Deepfunk 45s.- Original sells for over £1000- Daugher of Hank Ballard, of James Brown and King Fame
