OLD: Today I ordered "Night Train to Nashville", a 35-cut double CD that's been getting alot of press lately, spotlighting that city's somewhat overlooked rhythm & blues scene from 1945-70. Artists featured include Joe Simon, Arthur Alexander, Roscoe Shelton, Peggy Scott & Jo Jo Benson and a host of others.

NEW: I've been digging the new Graham Parker release, "Your Country" this week. I've been a fan of this pub rockin' r&b singer since his first LP in '76. A perennially underrated songwriter and singer still making great music.

More old: In the past month I've picked up copies of Laura Nyro's "Eli & the 13th Confession" and Tommy James & the Shondells "Anthology".

Hello again, soulful friends!

In the vynil era, I haved the bad habit to give my 7'' 45's to my friends when i acquired the albums that contained the 45's. Fortunately, when i acquired the Masquerader's "Everybody Wanna Live On" album (that today have a "ex" of mine) I keep the 45 "Listen" / "Baby It's You" (ABC-Hot Buttered Soul, 1976). Nice harmonies!.

Also this same "ex" have one album that i only have heard one time before she "confiscated" it! (no smile!), and don't remember the title, i believe was also on Isaac Haye's Hot Buttered Soul Records as the other, have a illustration of cards in the sleeve. Also I have read in some web-site that the Masqueraders were almost to signing a deal with Gambe & Huff before Isaac Hayes producing them (?). Somebody knows?

Peace & Soul Food

Teddy Pendergrass. A compilation of stuff from his Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes days, as well as his single stuff. I saw it at the supermarket checkout and couldn't resist it.

Yep, satisfaction WAS guaranteed.

The one before that was Jimmy Ruffin.

However, it was only last month that I saw "The Alarm" in concert in London, and found myself jigging around next to a former Sex Pistol. A friend of mine is a keen follower of all that stuff. And I just love to soak up the atmosphere. I try to get to as many different types of concert as I can. It helps me remember how different we all are, but united in a love of music.

I also just ordered the new Lionel Richie CD from the UK. I didn't want to wait for the US release because the US version won't have as many songs.

LadyMystique I like what you wrote about Dawn Silva!!! LOL I love the woman and her CD is indeed one of the best funk albums of the last 15 years... I was instrumental in getting her the record deal that allowed her to get the commercial release that she never got in the US... her US album is autoproduced while we have a different art cover over here but it's on a commercial label.

Now the last album I bought (new) is Peter Müller's M-VYBEZ... fantastic jazz-funk bass player in the same vein as Marcus Miller... check it out at :
http://cdbaby.com/cd/petermuller

Otherwise I recently upgraded my copy of Spontaneous Combustion by the Shirelles
And bought the following:
Sylvers II (I had been looking for that one for ages, don't know why but it is pretty hard to get)
Tony Lamar Ladie’s Choice
Marys Wells 1st LP on 20ieth Century

That twist of Motown, is one cool album, well worth others checking that out.

The Spirit of Philidelphia is also essential.

Man, it's been so long since this new stuff's excited me, that it feels like the last new music that I bought was by the cat named Beethoven. They say that he's goin' places. It's still in the original shrink wrap, it's a classic. He sampled Ruff Daddy & 3 Cents. It's Gangster Classical & I think it was produced by Grumble & Hoff, on the GIR label. What'cha know about this one Bobby E :) :) :)
