Total Satisfaction
Cat: OTS 200. Rel: 06 Apr 21
  1. Total Satisfaction (3:51)
  2. Human (3:50)
Review: 1977 single 'Total Satisfaction', a "45" released on obscure label Sound Plus, is one of the rarest and most sought after records in Brief Encounter's catalogue. Here it gets a fresh pressing on Japanse imprint Ultra Vybe. It's well worth a listen. The title track is particularly delicious: a loved-up chunk of downtempo, disco-era soul in which the group's sublime vocals rise above hazy horns, twinkling electric piano, lush orchestration and a languid, laidback groove. Flipside 'Human' is a little more up-tempo, but still largely laidback, warm and groovy, with weightier bottom end and a few more nods towards disco-soul.

Review: On its digital release earlier in the year, Celeste's debut album rocketed to the top of the album charts, thus making her the first British female artist to see her first set get to number one for over five years. Finally available on vinyl in a "deluxe edition" that boasts a couple of bonus tracks and an accompanying booklet, Not Your Muse remains a classy and inspired debut, with Celeste's smoky, timeless vocals fitting producer Jamie Hartman's accompanying backing tracks - a mixture of pared-back folk sounds, lavishly orchestrated easy listening, synth-laden power-pop and fuzzy, retro soul-influenced numbers - like a particularly comfortable glove.

Never Too Much
Never Too Much (7" repress)
Cat: ATH 091. Rel: 14 Apr 21
  1. Never Too Much (4:25)
  2. Never Too Much (instrumental) (4:18)
Review: Athens Of The North is unveiling a whole wealth of new 7"s this month and as usual, each and every one is an essential purchase. This one in particular will resonate with a wide audience thanks to the ubiquity of the source material - Luther Vandross's 'Never Too Much.' There have been many versions over the years but this reggae take from Derrick Cross is special indeed, and an OG will costs basically too much for any sane person. Now a fully legit repress makes it accessible to all once more, and hurrah for that.

  8. Expect Your Miracle (4:30)
Review: Some serious gospel-soul action here from one of the most storied gospel groups in history, the Clark Sisters. The album, which was co-produced by their mother, the legendary choir director Mattie Moss Clark, first landed in US record stores way back in 1980. It's a stunning album all told, with the sisters' incredible vocals rising above backing tracks marked out by interesting arrangements, changes of mood and tone, and plenty of authentic soul and jazz instrumentation. The superb title track and the infections 'Ha-Ya (Eternal Life)' - the latter the subject of a number of re-edits over the years - are the best-known cuts, but other highlights include 'Pure Gold', the epic 'Speak Lord' and 'Salvation Means More To Me'.

Who's Your Boss
  1. Pearl Farano & The High Lights Of Joy - "Who's Your Boss" (2:53)
  2. Zella Jackson - "Days Are Just Like People" (2:19)
Review: Greg Belson is a world leading gospel collector and DJ who had great success with his Divine Disco series. He continued his vital work with Cultures of Soul on the Devin Funk compilations series and now the label are serving up the many highlights on 7". Here we have
Pearl Farano & The High Lights Of Joy with 'Who's Your Boss', a high speed funk gem with in the pocket drum playing and energetic guitar riffs. The real star of course is the coarse vocal that cannot help but light your fires. On the flip, Zella Jackson's vocal soars next to summery flutes and raw, dense rhythm sections.

Review: Following 2014's When The World Was One, Halsall and the Gondwana collective continue their spiritual jazz adventure with another immaculate narrative. Now with much more vocal prowess, singer Josephine Oniyama plays a lead role in the story, adding consistency and personality to the Halsall's swooning, cinematic odysseys. Highlights include the Hathaway-style half spoken/half sung "Badder Weather", the frenetic double bass and brushed drum crescendos of "The Land Of", the (lark) ascending strings and oriental scales of "Cushendun" and the smoky, faraway Coltraneisms of the title track. Modern jazz doesn't get any more authentic than this.

  1. I Don't Envy Yesterdays (2:23)
  2. Color It Easy (2:34)
Review: The gold standard Big Crown label excels at heartbreaking Americana, blue-eyed soul and downbeat pop. A 116th release of such sounds now comes from Holy Hive who are back with a new bunch of songs after their 2020 debut album, Float Back To You, won widespread acclaim. Their trademark folk-soul sound is in full view once more here with falsetto vocals bring real heart aching over slow, downbeat drums. It's beautiful stuff that takes the form of two only subtle different singles here. Both wallow in their own sadness and delicateness but leaving a lasting impression.

Review: British reissue champions Soul Brother return to democratise a certified northern soul classic. Released 1969 (just three years before Linda died, aged 27), both sides hit hard with raw soul power. "I Just Can't Live My Life" stomps with Stax gutsiness while "My Heart" eases back off the tempo and gives the backing singers and soaring strings a chance to shine with Linda. Original pressings of this have previously passed for over 500 pounds Grab a double-sided slice of history.

  1. In One Piece (2:00)
  2. In One Piece (unreleased instrumental) (2:00)
Review: This year, a number of labels - most notably Dynamite Cuts - have been digging in to the seemingly bottomless archives of much-sampled American-Trinidadian artist and producer George Semper, a man many consider to be "the Godfather of Bay Area soul". Here Mukatsuku gets in on the act by offering up a fresh pressing of Semper-produced funk band In One Piece's rare, self-titled debut the first time ever on a 45. The vocal version on side A is superb, and features Cindy Jones singing attractively over a bustling, loose-limbed, B-Boy friendly rhythm track and sweaty Hammond B3 solos from jazz organist Rodney Franklin. The latter's mazy, jazzy keys-work naturally comes to the fore on the flipside instrumental, which has never before been heard let alone released until now. A genuine must-have for funk fans and B-Boys searching for drum breaks alike....As played by Pete Rock...DJ Koco from Japan...DJ Spinna....DJ Muro...Mr Thing....Rob Life....Rob Manga....The Allergies....Smoove..Bobbito....Rich Medina...

Review: Man like Jordan Rakei has become a modern neo soul pin up. His solo releases - whether under this name or a more house leaning alias Dan Kyo - drip with sensuality. His buttery vocals always well matched with smoochy beats and deep grooves. To get a window into his music collection is mouthwatering indeed, and a Late Night Yales mix seems like the perfect opportunity to do so. As expect there are jazz moments, deeply soulful sounds, a few of his own exclusives and plenty of candle lit, tender, middle of the night moments of pure musical joy.

Review: The latest volume in the long-running Late Night Tales series sees lo-fi soul star Jordan Rakei provide us with a flavour of what we might hear should we be round at his house in the early hours of the morning. It's a predictably diverse, emotion-rich and musically intricate affair, with Rakei's mix smoothly moving between sumptuous future soul (Fink), sun-splashed jazz (Afa Mist), neo-soul (Charlotte Day Wilson, Moreton), neo-folk (Puma Blue), stunning vocal soundscapes (C Duncan), horizontal Balearic pop (Oseo Leone) and jazz-flecked electronica (Homay Schmitz). In keeping with the series' ethos, Rakei has also provided a couple of exclusive cover versions, adding his distinctive spin to songs by Jeff Buckley and Radiohead.

Rockin Chair

  1. Rockin Chair (3:52)
  2. 'Till I Get My Share (2:27)
Review: 
Ultra Vybe is one of the many superb soul labels to operate out of Japan. This time they turn their attention to the sounds of the 70s soul vocalist Clarence Reid. He had a slew of hits and two of them make it on to this 7". First is 'Rockin Chair' from his 1975 album It Keeps in Raining. It's mid tempo, warm and well swung with a louche vocal turn. ''Till I Get My Share' is a more direct cut with a passionate vocal and big horn stabs over prickly rhythms. It's one of his earlier singles from 1972 but still bangs in 2021.

  3. Life (acoustic mix) (4:26)
  4. Life (Scrimshire remix) (4:55)
Review: Wah Wah 45s return to the world of reissues by offering up a fresh (and expanded) pressing of an overlooked acoustic soul gem from the early 1990s. SAM was a short-lived collaboration between singer-songwriter Sam Edwards and producer Alex Boyesen, who met while the was working for the Haringey Music Workshop community project, with the pair self-releasing a two-track single. You get both of those cuts here: the simply sublime, life-affirming acoustic soul-jazz brilliance of 'American Cars' and the even more jazzy 'Life', both of which feature staggeringly good lead vocals from Edwards. The EP also includes two fresh remixes: an extended, subtly beefed-up jazz-dance revision of 'American Cars' from Ashley Beedle's Afrikanz on Marz project, and a warming, colourful, synth-sporting take on 'Life' by Adam Scrimshire.

Took A Chance On Love
Cat: FL 012. Rel: 12 Apr 21
  1. Took A Chance On Love (3:14)
  2. Don't Wanna Lose Your Love (4:43)
Review: Satin Finish started out as a trio of Goldsboro musicians namely Donald Oliver on keys, Joe Exum on drums and Dennis Kornegay on bass. They were all scouted to the Greenback Records label out of New Jersey by two producers by the names of George Greene and Gary D. Jackson. High school graduate Karen Scott was the band's vocalist and here she does a fine job across a pair of stunning and spine tingling cuts of soul drenched, mid tempo disco funk. 'Took A Chance On Love' has great harmonies and dancing keys to get you moving and 'Didn't Wanna Lose Your Love' is the more sentimental slow song for smoochy moments.

Wish I Didn't Miss You
Cat: MSV 025. Rel: 14 Apr 21
  1. Wish I Didn't Miss You (3:53)
  2. Wish I Didn't Miss You (remix) (4:19)
Review: Oooh! Angie Stone's "Wish I Didn't Miss You" definitely belongs in the canon of all time modern soul classics. Taken from her 2001 second album Mahogany Soul, the Swizz Beats produced track made optimum usage of an O' Jays sample and was instrumental in that LP going gold and propelling the former D'Angelo collaborator to stardom. It also inspired countless official and under the counter remixes with Blaze's perhaps the most recognisable. So yes this reissue on 7" from Outta Sight is worthy if you don't have the original in your collection and features a housed up remix from Hex Hector on the flip.

Review: Amazingly, this 7" from the Young Mods has never even been sold on Discogs, which is surely a mark of just how rare it is. The group was formed when Tommy Henderson came back home to Ohio from a tour of Vietnam. He hooked up with Carl Dronaugh, Raymond Smith and Ronnie Ditto and a host of other backing group members and had huge success with their first ever release. It sent them on a nationwide tour of the States and saw them open for the he O'Jays, Delfonics & Intruders. These two gorgeous soul numbers formed their follow up single. There was only ever more more official release after this, which is all the more astonishing given how good it is.
