Fantastic harmony soul LP with great Chicago soul production by Gene Chandler,
and singing from Mel & Tim that will blow your mind! The tracks are
a fantastic example of the sort of psychedelic soul sound that was
coming out of Chicago at the time -- with tight catchy hooks in the
songs, soaring soulful harmonies, and excellent instrumentation that
has some good fuzzy bits and nice hard drums.
Here is the next 3 albums of a group which mix Latin Rock, Funk and Soul.
1970 the Malibus changed their name to Malo and things started
happening with a guitarist was brought in by the name of Jorge Santana,
the brother of the already famous Carlos Santana. At times numbering as
many as ten or more musicians, Malo's powerful sound was different to
that of Santana in that the line-up included a serious
horn section, which included, at various times, leading trumpet player
Luis Gasca, as well as percussionists Coke Escovedo, Francisco
Aguabella, Victor Pantoja and Richard Bean (of Sapo fame).They were
signed to Warner Brothers Records and recorded their first album, which
was simply enti

I finally obtain this vinyl after a long time searching. This
is the debut LP for Sussex records in 1972. Very rare even to find it
on mp3. Not to be confused with 1975 RCA album with only her name too. Even All Music is wrong having 1975 songs in this album’s song list.
of the most amazing singer/songwriters of the 1970s. Sometimes funky,
sometimes sensitive. Zulema's distinct style of soul is always
dramatic, passionate and unapologetically in-your-face. This lady
doesn't play around! Like her lyrics, her voice is powerful, holding
nothing back. At times, her full-blown delivery is similar to the style
of Chaka Khan, yet Zulema's fire is distinctly her own.
compared to Aretha Franklin, singer Margie Joseph earned neither the
fame nor the critical success lavished upon the Queen of Soul, but a
series of excellent records for Atlantic during the 1970s nevertheless
won her a spot in the pantheon of soul cult favorites.
A great second generation southern soul singer
who really helped the label find a new sound in the 70s! Margie got her
start on Stax, but she sounds even better here -- a bit more mature,
slightly more urban.
Producer Freddy Briggs
took the helm for Joseph's , "Your Sweet Loving"; released in the
summer of 1970, the single proved a mi

One of the best albums ever recorded in any kind of music
Ranked #99 in Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums Of All Time"
dark soul album with layered drums, electric piano and forbodding bass
sounds. The vocals, mostly by Sly, are full of despair and emotion, as
are much of the lyrics. "Family Affair" is a major classic with some
really druggy vocals from Sly. "Africa Talks to You" i

V.A. - What It Is! Funky Soul and Rare Grooves (1967-1977)
Ninety-one tracks deep and five hours long. This
may be the desert island comp for funk and soul fans. From the New
Orleans ' R&B of Allen Trousie Toussaint," to the funk universalism
of Earth, Wind and Fire, this comp touches nearly all the bases.
are seminal jams such as Bay Key's "Soul Finger," but much of this
focuses on rare gems from many of soul's biggest names. Perhaps the
disk's greatest virtue, though, is the attention paid to lesser known
acts, which makes this collection as much a beginning as it is an end.
An absolute masterpiece and a peak in 70's soul-music.
"For The love Of Money" is a definite track of the period and a good
example of how ambitious the architects behind the so-called Philly
Sound actually were. The title track is a hair-rasising account of the
ships that brought over the slaves from West Africa and it is
definitely another carer high.
A New Orleans funk and soul ensemble who enjoyed moderate success in the mid-'70s, Chocolate Milk
recorded for RCA from 1975 to 1983. Chocolate Milk was lucky enough to
have worked with Allen Toussaint who produced their albums for Sansu
songs were up-tempo and/or light dance/novelty numbers such as "Action
Speaks Louder Than Words" in 1975, "Girl Callin" in 1978, and "Blue
Jeans" in 1981. All were Top 20 R&B hits.
A very rare Soul Disco Funk album. I always enjoy listen to it, very difficult to find it. Never released on CD. A must have.
stuff from this super, but frequently forgotten, modern soul funk disco
group. The record's a nice mix of mellow tracks with more up tempo ones
and in its best moments, the production by Jerry Peters hits a nice
spacey edge. Includes the singles "Wake Up & Be Somebody" and
"Loving You Is Really My Game"
