There many really good new releases and reissues this week with something for most people. Pride of place goes to our own Soul singer Bashiyra whose album ‘Independent’ is really strong and varied and deserves being our album of the week. Bashiyra will be at Soul Brother Records store on Sat 11th August 1.30pm signing copies of the CD, so put that date in your diary and come and meet and support one of the leading UK Soul vocalists.
Chris Jasper has made many solo albums since his days with the Isley Brothers , ‘Dance With You’ is another good album from this evergreen artist. Stephanie McKay returns after a long absence with a really nice 5 track Ep. There are good CDs on the Ropeadope label from Eddie Palmieiri Shaun Martin and Javier Santiago. The Robert Glasper R&R=Now album is now in on Double Vinyl. Blue moka is an Italian band ft Fabrizio Bossa , another good jazz album.
The ultra rare Tohru Aizawa album ‘Tachibana’ is released on Cd and Double Vinyl , grab this while you can as it is likely to sell out fast.Dimitri from Paris has remixed many Chic tracks and their productions on a double CD. There is also a good Salsoul remix project ‘Salsoul Sounds familar’.
Backstreet Brit Funk vol 2 pt 1 Lp is now finally in with the correct sound.
Lord & Dego have a new 12″ as usual this will sell out early, and we have a few copies of the previous 2000 Black 12″ back in stock.
