Earth, Wind & Fire were one of the most musically accomplished, critically acclaimed, and commercially popular funk bands of the '70s. Conceived by drummer, bandleader, songwriter, kalimba player, and occasional vocalist Maurice White, EWF's all-encompassing musical vision used funk as its foundation, but also incorporated jazz, smooth soul, gospel, pop, rock & roll, psychedelia, blues, folk, African music, and, later on, disco. Lead singer Philip Bailey gave EWF an extra dimension with his talent for crooning sentimental ballads in addition to funk workouts; behind him, the band could harmonize like a smooth Motown group, work a simmering groove like the J.B.'s, or improvise like a jazz fusion outfit. Plus, their stage shows were often just as elaborate and dynamic as George Clinton's P-Funk empire.

Digitally remastered two-fer from the Soul duo containing a pair of their original albums: You Fooled Me (1979) and Prime Time (1980). Zane Grey and Len Ron Hanks were songwriters and producers from Chicago. Like their Philadelphia contemporaries McFadden & Whitehead, they stepped into the studio as recording artists in the late '70s to capitalize on their success and the vast popularity of the day's Soul and Disco sound. On these two albums recorded for RCA, their sole output as artists, they combine their studio skills with a display of Zane Grey's formidable vocal prowess atop a congregation of the finest musicians in the genre (including Earth Wind & Fire" on hits "Dancin'" and "You Fooled Me"). Includes the 'rare groove' "Since I Found You" and boogie classic "Now I'm Fine".

It was four years between the release of Bo's last album of all-new cuts, 500% More Man, and this album, during which time he'd spent time recording with Chess' top bluesmen, Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf. The death of Leonard Chess in October of 1969 resulted in the sale of the label to the GRT corporation, and cost the company what little artistic guidance it had.

After the anti-disco reaction at the end of the 1970s, the band struggled to obtain both airplay and sales, and during the early 1980s they disbanded. Rodgers and Edwards produced records for a variety of artists together and separately. The Chic rhythm section of Rodgers, Edwards, and Thompson provided instrumental back-up for the successful album Diana for Diana Ross that ended up selling over ten million albums internationally, with Rodgers and Edwards producing. It yielded the four weeks at number-one single "Upside Down" and the top ten song "I'm Coming Out".

"The Girl Can't Help It" is rightly considered to be the finest rock and roll movie made in the 1950s. It was the only rock and roll movie made in colour and released in wide screen. Most of the other equally famous rock and roll movies were low-budget affairs of B movie status. "The Girl Can't Help It" featuring several major stars including Tom Ewell, Edmund O'Brien and of course, Jayne Mansfield.

Time Waits for No One is the seventh album by American soul singer Mavis Staples. The album was her first on Prince's Paisley Park Records label and was released on May 24, 1989.[1] The album includes six Prince-penned songs and two songs written by Homer Banks and Lester Snell. Shortly after this album, she continued her collaboration with Prince. In September 1989, she recorded the song "Melody Cool" which would appear in the 1990 movie Graffiti Bridge, as well as on its soundtrack, and on her 1993 follow-up album The Voice.

The once-dominant disco group Change enjoyed its final hit with this 1985 album. The lineup had changed radically from the days when Luther Vandross or James Robinson were providing exciting, soulful leads. The leads throughout this session, even on the lone successful single, "Let's Go Together," were more efficient than distinctive. The group's founder, Jacques Fred Petrus, returned to the production helm and recycled the arrangements that once made the group a major act.

Style: Funk, Jazz, Rock & Roll, R&B | Label: Jazzman

Between 1988 and 2000, the shadowy crew behind the Strip label put out six volumes of "Las Vegas Grind", a compilation series celebrating sleazy - and usually undeniably obscure - rhythm and blues, rock and roll and novelty lounge records from the 1950s and '60s. Here the series returns thanks to Jazzman, who somehow managed to to track down the digger responsible - and his eccentric record collection. From skewed surf-rock and low-slung rhythm and blues to comedy big band swing, rousing proto-funk and "Rocky Horror Picture Show" style madcap stompers, the album offers a whirlwind romp through some seriously good - and not to mention especially silly - gems rescued from dollar bins, dumpsters and yard sales the World over. Do yourself a favour and check it out.

The Spinners were the greatest soul group of the early '70s, creating a body of work that defined the lush, seductive sound of Philly soul. Ironically, the band's roots lay in Detroit, where they formed as a doo wop group during the late '50s. Collection includes: 'Pick Of The Litter' (1975); Dancin' And Lovin' (1979); 2LP-in-1CD 'From Here To Eternally' (1979)+ 'Love Trippin' (1980); 2LP-in-1CD 'Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow' (1977) + 'Labor Of Love' (1981).

An odd album, one of two the duo did in 1971. This one yielded no hits, but included an interesting version of "Baby (What You Want Me To Do)" and a remake of "Tell The Truth," from their first album. It was otherwise prototype Ike and Tina, but Tina didn't sound so enthused and Ike wasn't generating much magic behind her.

Nice pressings of '60s and '70s material, including an interesting recut of the Spector-produced Classic. As usual, Tina's vocal is intense, impassioned, and "real". Very interesting liner notes provided (inner page) on who is really singing on I Think It's Gonna Work Out Fine".

On Who I Am (1975) former Temptations' vocalist David Ruffin joins forces with the multi-talented Van McCoy. McCoy who produced and arranged the album was a hot commodity thanks to his disco hit "The Hustle." Although Motown had relocated to Los Angeles, Ruffin and McCoy brought the project to New York City and availed themselves of the finest studio musicians that the Big Apple had to offer: Richard Tee (keyboards), Eric Gale (guitar), Hugh McCracken (guitar), and Steve Gadd (drums), just to mention a few. The opening midtempo title composition sets the pace and establishes the prevalent dance-centric nature.
