It is an amazing week for releases this week. Will Sessions and Amp Fiddler have made an absolute belter of an album featuring Dames Brown. Hard, soulful boogie of the highest order: imagine The Eighties Ladies jamming with an underground Detroit Boogie producer in 1981. The LP is in now CD is expected next week. We have a great new Soul album from Vivian Sessoms on Ropeadope. We are introducing a great independent soul artist from L.A. Raquel Rodriquez. We have an album on CD and LP plus 2 EP Cd’s and 2 45’s from this new talent.You can watch the video of her in store and listen to an interview with her here.
Outta Sight have a great new compilation Soul on the Realside Vol 9 which has arrived early and is in store now. It is another good addition to this great series.
J.P. Bemini has made a good retro soul album, his story of recovering from being a refugee to a recording artist is a heartening one.
Fima Ephron continues the legacy of Ropeadope with another good jazz album. Cesar Mariano ‘Sao paulo Brasil’ is classic Brazilian Jazz Fusion album from the 70’s a bit like Azymuth, now reissued on Cd and LP. There are also some good comps from Soul Jazz plus a copule of great 12″ from Sylvia Striplin and Polish Jazz EABS on 22a.
