Stephanie Mills – 1979 – What Cha Gonna Do with My Lovin’

When Stephanie Mills enjoyed a major commercial breakthrough with her third album, What Cha Gonna Do with My Lovin’, the singer often found herself being described as a disco diva — and it wasn’t a description that she agreed with. Mills saw herself as primarily a romantic R&B traditionalist,…

Spiders Webb – 1976 – I Don’t Know What’s On Your Mind

A real treasure from the Cali scene of the 70s – the one and only album from drummer Spider Webb – and a wicked batch of bass-heavy grooves throughout! Spider’s drums are definitely great, and his offbeat vocals are completely charming, too – but the…

Z.Z. Hill – 1971 – The Brand New Z.Z. Hill

Sounding like the middle ground between Bobby “Blue” Bland and Otis Redding, Z.Z. Hill had only just begun to make an impression on the charts after a few singles for Kent and United Artists when his contract was sold and he found himself recording for…

Bob James – 1975 – Two

A monster – and quite possibly one of the greatest Fender Rhodes albums of all time! Bob James is really at the height of his powers here – stepping out with a sound that’s a lot smoother than some of his earlier work, yet in…

Bottom & Co. ‎- 1976 – Rock Bottom

Such a great little album full of funk and soul gems. In particular the funky “Do you wanna do a thing” and my fave the fab soul/funk “You can belong to me (if you let me love you)” a real treat for the ears that…

Motown Spotlight – August/September 2018

Something different this month I thought, and maybe a little off-beat, but here goes. Let’s talk about one of the most significant albums in Motown’s history – Stevie Wonder’s “Songs In The Key Of Life”, his 18th studio album, released in September 1976, some forty-two years ago. Originally scheduled for October ‘75, but delayed because …

The Isley Brothers ‎- 1976 – Harvest For The World

I don’t own every Isley Brother’s albums but this one is really my favorite. It’s great art by all means. This album is just an excellent blend of funk, soul, pop and rock. Just listen to “Harvest For The World” and you’ll feel like you…

Jeanette Jones – Dreams All Come True

Jeanette Jones is one of soul’s great enigmas. She’s revered by a coterie of deep soul buffs even though little is known about her (no one’s even sure if she’s still alive). Equally she was never prolific as a recording artist. There are maybe a…

Harvey Mason – 1977 – Funk In A Mason Jar

Smooth soulful jazz from Harvey Mason – one of his strong 70s winners for the Arista album, and a record that really brings a new level of class to his sound! There’s less of the grit in the grooves than you might expect from the…
