  1. Process and the Doo Rags - Colorful changes

    Process & the Doo Rags started when Rick James enlisted his back-up singer James “Bunty” Hawkins (aka Process), the brother of the funk legend’s guitarist and musical director Kenny Hawkins. He wanted to begin preparing some of his male backup singers to form a stand-alone act, much like the Mary Jane Girls. James and Kenny picked out Stacey “Wave” Lattimore, Henry “Gumps” Graham, Dennis “Shorty” Andrews and Michael “Smooth” Gibson and Process and the Doo Rags were born. The group was almost a quartet. Over 400 singers auditioned for the group and Lattimore, Graham and Gibson were picked to join the brothers Hawkins. Then Andrews asked for a late audition. “I'm a little guy," Andrews said at the time. “But I have a big voice." And he was in. *Re-release-date: 15-4-2016 Learn More

  2. Charles Earland – Coming To You Live

    “Coming to you live” is a reissue of a massively in demand 1980s soul/funk classic from the “Mighty Burner”. Originally soul-jazz organist, Earland turned his hand to a more disco/funk sound later in his career. It is one of Charles Earland's sweet albums from his years at Columbia Records – done in a mode that's much more R&B than his earliest work, but in a great style for sure. The title track “Coming To You Live” is a seriously classy slice of soul heaven with layers of funky slap bass, horns and silky smooth vocals from Earland’s wife Sheryl Kendricks - pure dancefloor dynamite! The album is greatly helped out by arrangements from Tom Washington, Weldon Irvine, and Marcus Miller – all great talents for mixing soul into Earland's jazzier keyboards – yet in a way that still keeps all of the best elements intact! But also listen to the soulful “I Will Never Tell” with its beautiful breathy vocals and masterful organ work, truly a great song. Most of the tracks feature vocals, but in a gently soulful way that glides in nicely alongside the keys – and speaking of keys, Charles plays Fender Rhodes and Arp here in addition to his usual organ. This re-issue album is digitally remastered from original mastertape. Learn More

After a couple of singles the Miracles released "Do It Baby" in 1974, which peaked at #4 on the Billboard R&B charts and became the group's first big hit with Griffin. Like Robinson before him, Griffin co-wrote many of the Miracles' songs, in addition to singing lead vocal. Griffin and original Miracles member Pete Moore wrote all of the Miracles' 1975 platinum selling album, "City of Angels". During his tenure with the group, they recorded three hits: "Do It Baby" in 1974, and the Miracles' most successful single, the number-one hit "Love Machine", in 1975 which sold 4.5 million records worldwide. *Release-date: 18th of March 2016 Learn More

  7. Scott White – Succes... Never Ends

    Artist: Scott White Title: Success ... never ends Label: PTG Records Cat. nr: PTG 34217 Barcode: 8717438198170
    Scott White’s album Success...Never Ends (two titles from tracks on the album stitched together) received critical acclaim and offered a solid match between White’s gospel-infused vocals and Song’s bright production sound and contemporary songwriting. Scott White showcased his versatility through a balanced mixture of smart dancefloor tunes and silky soul songs. The urban R&B set included the club favorite and sole single off the album “I Don’t Understand It”, the CD-only bonus track “Been Gone Too Long”, the sophisticated dancer “Hypnotized” – reminiscent of “Save The Overtime (For Me)” by Gladys Knight & the Pips –, producer Darryl Duncan’s one contribution “Never Ends”, the techno-funk beater “Love Emergency” – that might as well have been fabricated by David Frank and Mic Murphy of The System – and the scorching ballads “Success” and “Time Has A Hold On Love”, both co-written by White. The seasoned session singers Janice Dempsey and Vaneese Thomas provided the backing vocals.
