    Communication (Awaiting Repress)

    Communication is a 1971 R&B album recorded by Bobby Womack. It reached No. 5 on the Billboard R&B chart and No. 20 on the Billboard Jazz Chart in 1972. It included the hit single, That's The Way I Feel About Cha, which charted at No. 2 on the Billboard R&B Singles chart and No. 27 on the Billboard pop chart. The album became Womack's breakthrough spawning the hit single That's The Way I Feel About Cha and a favorite Womack album track, (If You Don't Want My Love) Give It Back, which Womack recorded three times after the original, the first remake, a slower acoustic version, was issued on the soundtrack of the film, Across 110th Street, and an instrumental by J. J. Johnson's band. The fourth time Womack recorded it was with Rolling Stones singer and musician Ron Wood. Womack recorded his own versions of James Taylor's Fire and Rain, Ray Stevens' Everything Is Beautiful and featured a spoken word monologue in his cover of the Burt Bacharach and Hal David standard, (They Long To Be) Close to You.

    Fly Me To The Moon

    1968's Fly Me To The Moon was Womack's first solo long-player, after a decade of forging a singular path as R&B morphed into soul music, first with the Sam Cooke-sponsored Valentinos, and subsequently as a songwriter and guitarist for the likes of Wilson Pickett. Indeed, the album features Womack's version of Pickett's 'Midnight Mover,' along with very groovy interpretations of 'California Dreamin'' (a small hit at the time),' 'Moonlight In Vermont,' and the title cut. But it is the singers own superlative material - 'What Is This,' 'Somebody Special,' 'Take Me' - that shines best on this fantastic debut, produced by the estimable Chips Moman at his American Studios facility in Memphis, utilizing one of the finest session crews in southern soul.

    Facts Of Life

    Womack is one of the most prolific and influential acts in R&B and rock. With songs like I Can Understand It, Harry Hippie, and Woman Got to Have It, Womack often displayed a depth, candor, and an expert turn of phrase that helped him outpace his contemporaries. Facts of Life is the follow-up to the 1972 classic Communication. This album is even better. Womack is known for his often uncomfortably real takes on love, life, and relationships, and Facts of Life expertly deals with a myriad of subjects. The only released single is his revamped take of the standard Nobody Wants You When You're Down and Out. The song has been done ad infinitum, but Womack put a nasty edge on it that made it sound like a song he wrote himself. I'm Through Trying to Prove My Love to You is punctuated by his great guitar riffing and plaintive vocal and lyrical gems like, See when you take my heart/ I can't let you take my soul. He'll Be There When the Sun Goes Down benefits from more witticisms and a strong string arrangement from Womack and Rene Hall. Perhaps the most surprising thing about Facts of Life is that Womack is so adept at taking others' material and making it his own. Natural Man, a cover of You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman, is the biggest shock here. Where Aretha Franklin's version had her skillfully shouting from the rooftops, Womack brings tenderness to the lyric and is believable. Produced by Womack and recorded in Muscle Shoals with its renowned players, Facts of Life is an album of undeniable craft.

    Lookin' For A Love Again

    Released January 11, 1974 the album reached #85 on the Billboard U.S. Pop Charts, and #5 on the Billboard R&B Charts. It included the hit single Lookin' For A Love which charted No. 1 on the Billboard R&B Singles chart, and #10 The Billboard U.S. Pop Chart. Sadly, it was the last album in which Bobby's younger brother Harry was featured. In the March after this album was released, he would be stabbed to death by his girlfriend. Harry and the other brothers are featured singing background vocals on the album as they had with previous Bobby releases and re-sung their original 1962 hit when they were The Valentinos. Bobby had rehearsed the song and wasn't originally going to feature it but did so by the insistence of one of his musicians.

    Across 110th Street

    One of the few surviving links to the pre-Soul/R&B era, Bobby Womack - who was originally discovered as a teenager singing Gospel music by the late Sam Cooke - nowadays enjoys full-blown "Living Legend" status. Blessed with one of the warmest, most readily-identifiable voices in Soul music, he carved out his reputation with a series of classic albums and singles in the early 70s, re-emerging again in the 80s with his career masterpieces, The Poet and The Poet II, the latter achieving platinum status in Europe alone.


    This unique package concentrates on the early 70s, and is built around the iconic, award-winning original soundtrack to Across 110th Street (1972), the critically-acclaimed - albeit violent, bloodthirsty and deeply disturbing - Blaxploitation movie which starred Anthony Quinn, Yaphet Kotto and Anthony Franciosa. Perhaps Womack's most celebrated album, this compelling OST remains the most important soundtrack of the genre, the powerful title song later featuring heavily in both Quentin Tarantino's 1997 homage to Blaxploitation, Jackie Brown, and Ridley Scott's 2007 opus, American Gangster.


    Womack has enjoyed a long, rich career and still retains a strong cult status in the UK and Europe. He continues to record and tour sporadically and after battling ill-health in recent years, a new album is scheduled for release in June. The album is co-produced by Damon Albarn and Richard Russell, who also produced Gil Scott Heron's acclaimed final album.

    The Womack Live

    In 1970 Womack and manager Ed Wright decided to capitalize on his new-found solo visibility by capturing an in-person performance at a Los Angeles nightclub. The Womack Live was the result, a compelling, cathartic session where, as the original liner notes attest, Womack held church, agonizing, pleading, exhorting and testifying to a crowd fully in rapture to him. As well as extended jams on album material like 'How I Miss You Baby,' the playlist featured killer versions of 'Something' and 'Everybody's Talkin'' and some outrageous stage patter. All in all, it's an incredible recital capturing Bobby Womack in his prime, and even comes with an uncredited appearance from Percy Mayfield.

    My Prescription

    Womack returned to American in 1969 to cut My Prescription, also produced by Moman, at a time that the venue was becoming exceptionally hot with visits from the likes of Elvis, Dusty Springfield, Neil Diamond and others. Womack's sophomore album may however well be one of the most demonstrative showcases of studio and session crew, incandescent on a finely-honed program of classy and soulful performances, with the singer in full control. Tracks like 'How I Miss You Baby,' 'Arkansas State Prison' and 'I Can't Take It Like A Man' stand as some of Womack's greatest moments, and taken as a whole, My Prescription stands not only the man's first truly great solo album, but also a timeless slice of sophisticated southern soul-making.

    Safety Zone

    During the early '70s, Womack was one of the most prolific and talented artists. With albums like Communication and Lookin' For a Love Again, Womack quickly became one of the most prolific and talented singers in R&B/pop. ... Safety Zone finds Womack getting a sonic overhaul whether he needed it or not. Produced by David Rubinson who was behind the boards for everyone from the Pointer Sisters to Herbie Hancock, it creates a slick, up to the minute style that may be too perfect for Womack's core fans. The album's first track, Everything's Going to Be Alright, meanders and sets the standard for this album's pursuit of style over substance. The two covers, Something You Got and I Wish It Would It Rain, both feature eccentric arrangements but Womack's vocals seem facile around the edges. As an album like the Facts of Life scored on his honesty throughout, Safety Zone only has two instances that come within striking distance. Trust in Me, a self-written gem first recorded by his friend Janis Joplin, has Womack's gritty and wry vocal finally breaking free from the Rubinson's glossy production and arranging style. Daylight is one of Womack's best tracks. As Womack sings The real set don't get started/'Til every one else is in, you hear him conflicted, but not bothered enough to stop. For the track, Rubinson's offhanded grace made the song even stronger.

    Home Is Where The Heart Is

    Bobby Womack's move to Columbia Records heralded a shift from the earthy deep Soul sensibility of his previous records to a slicker, more sophisticated approach in step with the changing sound of contemporary R&B.


    The transition not only proves seamless, but in fact Home Is Where the Heart Is (1976) may very well be Womack's most compelling LP in some time. Recorded in both Muscle Shoals and Los Angeles, its disparate parts fit together like a well-oiled machine.


    Womack's wonderfully gruff vocals adapt well to the warmth and elegance of songs like How Long, Something for My Head and One More Chance on Love and he performs with unprecedented passion and focus.

    Ibeyi

    Ibeyi (pronounced ee-bey-ee) means "twins" in the language of the Yoruban culture
    of Lisa-Kainde and Naomi Diaz. The album of the same name, produced by
    XL Recordings boss Richard Russell, is the story of two sisters: their relationship,
    their origins, their shared history and their musical chemistry.


    The twins' roots are reflected in the polyglot nature of the lyrics - in English,
    French and Yoruban - and music which combines ritual chants with synths and
    samplers, jazz vocals with the spellbinding mystery of Björk and Fever Ray, the
    traditional with the modern. This uniquely cosmopolitan sound is the perfect
    vehicle for their intimately personal stories. According to them, "This album is
    about love and family and people who are gone."


    Lisa-Kainde and Naomi (the eldest by two minutes) were born in Paris, where
    they still live, but spent their first two years in Cuba. Their father was Miguel
    "Anga" Diaz, the member of the Buena Vista Social Club, who was acclaimed as
    the greatest conga player.


    Record producer and XL Recordings boss Richard Russell first encountered
    Ibeyi when he saw them performing "Mama Says" on a 2013 YouTube video. He
    soon invited them to meet him - a serious offer from someone who in recent
    years has produced albums by Gil Scott-Heron I'm New Here and Bobby Womack
    The Bravest Man In The Universe (co-produced with Damon Albarn), as well
    Albarn's own acclaimed 2014 solo album Everyday Robots.


    The album is a subtle melange of diverse influences: not just Lisa-Kainde's soul
    and jazz leanings and Naomi's up-to-the-minute beatmaking but the bloodlines
    of France, Cuba and Africa, including the use of Yoruban chants they first heard in
    the Santeria ceremonies. The tense, dramatic "Oya," the lead track on their debut
    EP, addresses the deity (or "Orisha") of change and destruction while "River"
    honours Oshun, the Orisha of love, rivers and fertility. Yoruban culture travelled
    from Nigeria and Benin to Cuba and Brazil with the slave ships centuries ago but
    is little-known in Europe.

The new Gorillaz empire is set on a strange floating island deep in the South Pacific at the furthest point from any land mass on the planet. Introducing Plastic Beach, an island made entirely of plastic, debris and the washed up remnants of humanity. Amongst the collection of historical remains and discarded rubble, Murdoc finds a book detailing the history of Man right up to the present day, except the last chapter The End of Days has been torn out, the future is missing. Time to get the band together, finish this album and have fun while the sun still shines. To complete the task, Murdoc has assembled some other musicians to join the band at Plastic Beach, these select people would join him on his floating Hellfire Club, as musicians, players and contributors in this wonky, damaged Plastic opera. Mos Def, Bobby Womack, The Horrors, Lou Reed, Little Dragon, rappers Kano and Bashy, Mark. E. Smith, Syrian orchestras, global musicians and more were subpoena-ed to collaborate on this visionary Gorillaz record.

    The Cost Of Living

    For The Revelations, their latest offering, The Cost Of Living (Decision/Sony RED), is a labor of love years in the making. Since they first came on the scene in 2008 with their Deep Soul EP(Decision), Brooklyn, NY's The Revelations have represented a twenty-first-century take on classic soul-one which shows reverence for the masters, but with a uniquely modern sensibility-a sound The New York Times' Jon Pareles calls "revivalism without poses or quotation marks".


    On The Cost Of Living, Rell Gaddis assumes the lead vocal duties previously provided by Tre Williams. This is by no means Rell's debut with The Revelations, however. Rell has been part of the group's writing team from their onset, and performed with the band for years, even contributing lead vocals to "It's Too Late" from their 2009 album The Bleeding Edge (Decision). Since being signed to Jay-Z's Roc-a-fella Records back in 1997, Rell has had a prolific singing and writing career, creating his own records, as well as penning and lending vocals to songs featuring artists Usher (Rell wrote Usher's #1 RnB Hit Here I Stand), Jay-Z, Kanye West, Mary J Blige, and many more.


    This workman-like mentality is pervasive throughout the band as well. The Revelations feature Wes Mingus on guitar, Gintas Janusonis on drums, and newcomer Ben Zwerin on bass. Each accomplished performing and session musicians in their own right, The Revelations have combined to provide music for icons such as the Wu-Tang Clan and Lee "Scratch" Perry, as well as soul royalty Otis Clay, Willie Clayton, Benny Latimore, and Swamp Dogg.


    The distinctive blues/rock/soul sound of The Cost Of Living was recorded at soul mecca Royal Studios in Memphis, TN, produced by Bob Perry with Lawrence "Boo" Mitchell, as well as The Revelations themselves. For this project, the band is joined by Stax and Hi Records session legends Bobby Manuel (guitar), Lester Snell (keyboards), and Charles Hodges (organ). Lyrically, The Cost Of Living weaves tales of perseverance despite hardship. From the opening track, "Mama", about a single mother scrounging to raise her children, to the jaded optimism of "It's Ok", the pragmatism of "Money Makes The World Go 'Round", and the heart-broken disillusionment of the soul classic "Got To Use My Imagination", The Revelations continue their tradition of presenting blues topics with soul music's urgency.


    The Revelations' engaging and energetic live performances continue to win over audiences from Brooklyn to the Mississippi Delta to California and beyond, creating fans such as A-listers B.B. King, Bobby Womack and Stevie Wonder in the process. This is new, true soul music with a sharp, modern edge.

    The Unissued Capitol Album

    Jim Ford's previously unissued second album and follow-up to the country-soul classic Harlan County, as it was intended to be heard, restored and re-mastered from the original master tapes in magnificent full stereo high-fidelity sound. Jim Ford was Sly Stone's best friend and Nick Lowe's biggest musical influence. Aretha Franklin, Bobby Womack and The Temptations have all recorded his songs. But after just one mythical album, Harlan County, in 1969, he disappeared. Many tried to find Jim Ford without any success, until Swedish music journalist and devoted fan L-P Anderson found him living in a northern California trailer park in 2006. Ford's modest residence contained a mountain of old master tapes and demos. Anderson befriended Ford and heard a story that even Hollywood scriptwriters would have said was too impossible to be true. Before leaving California, Anderson promised he'd get some of the tapes out on record. A compilation, The Sounds Of Our Time, appeared on Bear Family Records in 2007 and became a big success. The record spent four weeks on the Swedish charts and received worldwide critical acclaim. Ford was overwhelmed with the positive response but unfortunately he passed away in November of 2007 at the age of 66, just before the launch of Bear Family's second Jim Ford compilation, Point Of No Return.


    This self titled album was originally meant to be released by Capitol Records in October of 1970, but Ford fell out with the company's executives before the project was manufactured. Apparently, he got $20,000 and the master tapes. He also got strict orders never to show his face inside the Capitol building again. And now for the first time, here's Jim Ford's second album on 180g Import Vinyl LP.

    Mercury Rising

    'Mercury Rising' is the third studio album to be released by Rae & Christian. The duo weave together exceptional musicianship paired with a British song writing sensibility and the finest elements of studio production. 'Mercury Rising' was created at producer/musician Steve Christian's studio in Yorkshire with additional recording at songwriter/vocalist/DJ Mark Rae's London base. In London a song writing bond was formed with Ed Harcourt and Gita Langley who make excellent contributions with vocals, songs, strings and keys. Sam Genders of Diagrams threads a story of redemption lost on the Ubahn on '1975', Kate Rogers is on imperious form and rising star Jake Emlyn unravels a whole new level of microphone skills on 'Favourite Game'. The international guests include the one-and-only Jazzy Jeff and Australia's Agent 86 dealing out world class scratch treatments on 'Check The Technique' (Tony D's vocals taken from a session recorded at the birth of Grand Central Records), Brooklyn rapper Masta Ace and Mark Foster of Foster The People, a collaboration born from Mark's L.A. excursion.


    'Mercury Rising' is the first new material in many years from R&C. Their 1998 Mercury Music Prize nominated debut 'Northern Sulphuric Soul' (Vitally fresh and timelessly classic deserving a place alongside Massive Attack's Blue Lines" Uncut) and 2002's 'Sleepwalking' (Another triumph, brimming with soulful, languid grooves, deft samples and well-chosen guest singers" Q Magazine) were both released on their Grand Central Records label (Aim, Riton, Boca 45, Only Child), a defining imprint of the late 90s soul/funk/hip-hop/beats scene. Guest vocalists over the two albums included Bobby Womack, Texas, The Congos, The Pharcyde, The Jungle Brothers and Jeru The Damaja.

    Paradise & Lunch (On Sale)


    Desert Island-Worthy Paradise and Lunch Will Renew Your Faith in Music: Diverse 1974 Ry Cooder Set Comes on Like a Secret History of Song, Features Exquisite Interplay and Inspirational Harmonies


    Paradise and Lunch Mastered on 180g Vinyl from the Original Master Tapes, Pressed at RTI, and Strictly Limited to 3000 Numbered Copies: Mobile Fidelity LP Graced With Organic Sound


    Ry Cooder's exceptional Paradise and Lunch takes a popular precept - music as the common denominator across all languages and styles - to extremes few artists have envisioned let alone fulfilled. Considered by many diehards to be the California native's finest hour, the 1974 set unfurls with rarified levels of joyousness, ingenuity, and sophistication. A prime contender for any Desert Island list and an album that repeatedly restores your faith in the inimitable effects experienced upon listening to special performances, Paradise and Lunch is an eternal musicians' musician record - an adventurous, ambitious, soulful leap down roads well-traveled and paths less known.


    Such eclecticism, virtuosity, and ebullience resonate with unmatched verve on Mobile Fidelity's 180g LP reissue. Mastered from the original master tapes, pressed at RTI, and strictly limited to 3000 numbered copies, this vinyl LP boasts dead-quiet surfaces, superb transient response, front-to-back soundstaging, and an organic immediacy that heightens the enjoyment, character, and craft of the arrangements. Cooder's inspired guitar playing sounds tremendously lifelike, replete with proper scale, full-bodied tones, and a sense of decay that presents the trail ends of each note. Horns pop with three-dimensional detail and brassy colors. Akin to the contributions of all the all-star participants, Jim Keltner's percussion benefits from added stability and depth. Paradise and Lunch has never been more transparent.


    On the surface a collection of seemingly disparate jazz, blues, spiritual, and roots songs, the diversified album comes across as a secret history of music. It remains a paragon of seamless convergence in which sonic DNA differences reveal shared traits and quilt a fabric united by feeling, reinvention, and elation. Beginning with a recast rendition of a traditional folk number, Tamp 'Em Up Solid, believed to be a close descendant of the group-vocal tune sung by field hands when they stacked bales of cotton, and ending with a stirring stripped-down cover of Arthur Blake's Ditty Wah Ditty - a show-stealing duet sent up with just an acoustic guitar and jazz icon Earl Fatha Hines' spritely walking-the-line piano riffs - Paradise and Lunch charms with exquisite interplay, inspirational harmonies, and innate flair.


    At no point do the experimentations sound forced, artificial, or retro. Cooder transforms what initially appear to be obscurities into coherent, approachable songs that could have been recorded yesterday - or decades ago. In his world, a marvelous reggae-spiced and R&B-driven rendition of Bobby Womack's It's All Over Now coexists with a sanctified, harmony-based march through the gospel hymn Jesus on the Mainline anchored by restrained Dixieland accents and tolling bells. Another standard, albeit more modern, Burt Bacharach's Mexican Divorce strolls across dusty plains via gently clopping beats, shimmering Spanish motifs, and sympathetic support vocals.


    Cooder also turns up the electricity a smidge for his idea of Bobby Miller's If Walls Could Talk, a melodic snapshot of doo-wop shot through with reverb-drenched grooves. He rains funky vibes, chicken-scratch slide guitar, and churchgoing lessons down on a top-to-bottom remake of Blind Willie McTell's Married Man's a Fool, the revision evocative of the imagination, proficiency, and blending that help make Paradise and Lunch an absolute must-own album - and now, an audiophile choice for those wished-for Desert Island trips.

    Across 110th Street (40th Anniversary Edition) (Out of Stock)

    One of the few surviving links to the pre-Soul/R&B era, Bobby Womack - who was originally discovered as a teenager singing Gospel music by the late Sam Cooke - nowadays enjoys full-blown "Living Legend" status. Blessed with one of the warmest, most readily-identifiable voices in Soul music, he carved out his reputation with a series of classic albums and singles in the early 70s, re-emerging again in the 80s with his career masterpieces, The Poet and The Poet II, the latter achieving platinum status in Europe alone.


    This unique package concentrates on the early 70s, and is built around the iconic, award-winning original soundtrack to Across 110th Street (1972), the critically-acclaimed - albeit violent, bloodthirsty and deeply disturbing - Blaxploitation movie which starred Anthony Quinn, Yaphet Kotto and Anthony Franciosa. Perhaps Womack's most celebrated album, this compelling OST remains the most important soundtrack of the genre, the powerful title song later featuring heavily in both Quentin Tarantino's 1997 homage to Blaxploitation, Jackie Brown, and Ridley Scott's 2007 opus, American Gangster.


    Womack has enjoyed a long, rich career and still retains a strong cult status in the UK and Europe. He continues to record and tour sporadically and after battling ill-health in recent years, a new album is scheduled for release in June. The album is co-produced by Damon Albarn and Richard Russell, who also produced Gil Scott Heron's acclaimed final album.

    Understanding (Out Of Stock)

    Understanding is a 1972 R&B album recorded by Bobby Womack for United Artists Records.

At Muscle Shoals, he utilized top session players, including drummer Roger Hawkins, guitarists Jimmy Johnson and Tippy Armstrong, bassist David Hood and keyboardist Barry Beckett.


    The album reached No. 43 on the Billboard pop albums chart and No. 7 on the R&B albums chart. One of the key songs from the album, I Can Understand It, has become a soul classic and was a major hit for New Birth the following year. The song was also covered by Womack's brothers The Valentinos (Curtis, Harry and Friendly, Jr.) with production from Bobby. The brothers sing background on the original version.
