New Releases, Reissues Restocks | Friday 23rd February

There are loads of great releases this week. First up we finally have the long awaited Cleo Sol ‘Gold’ album on both LP and CD, a really nice new soul album but sadly likely to disappear fast, so grab your copy while you can. We have a very few more copies of Will Downing ‘Soul Rising’ LPs plus CDs. Brenda Lee Eager superb ‘When I’m With You’ is the rarest Mizell production and is available as a regular dinked or limited edition DJ Copy whilst stocks last. Jackie Ross ‘A new beginning’ from 1980 was overlooked at the time but now in demand and now available on Japanese LP and CD along with a collection of recordings she made with Southside Movement, all in limited quantity.

O’Donel Levy ‘Simba’ is a great Jazz-Funk album originally issued on Groove Merchant and now reissued on Mr Bongo. Lonnie Lston Smith ‘Live’ is given a high quality LP reissue on BGP and music on vinyl have some great reissues of Freddie Hubbard classic ‘Red Clay’, Deodato and Weather Report all on limited coloured vinyl.
Sam records were one of the best New York Disco labels and all their great recordings are compiled on an anthology on LP or CD. Earl Young was the drummer on many Philly and Salsoul classics which are compiled on ‘Groove Machine’ also available on CD.
There are some nice 45’s on Kent, and we are back in stock of the Sisters Love and GC Cameron 45s on Soul Brother. We are also back in stock of many great Soul, Funk, Jazz and Blues classic LPs.
