THE JIVE TURKEYS: Bread & Butter (Vinyl LP)

THE JIVE TURKEYS:  Bread & Butter (Vinyl LP)All the way back in 2010, Cincinnati’s The Jive Turkeys scored a pair of impressive firsts: the release of their accomplished debut long player for one and the fact that it was the first ever album release on label Colemine Records. The release in question was one which Colemine are shortly to re-release on vinyl and that is of course, their Bread & Butter LP – a twelve-track set of almost

THE SURE FIRE SOUL ENSEMBLE: Step Down

THE SURE FIRE SOUL ENSEMBLE: Step DownRating: ★★★★★ Time for another dope full-length payload from the Colemine label with the arrival of a brand new LP from The Sure Fire Soul Ensemble – Step Down. The ten-tracker is actually the fourth studio album by the San Diego nine-piece and is every bit as packed full of heavy instrumental soul and retro soundtrack thrills as past outings would make you hope for

ALANNA ROYALE: Fall In Love Again

ALANNA ROYALE: Fall In Love Again “Don’t you wanna fall in love again?” ponders Alanna Royale on the hook of new single entitled (perhaps not surprisingly) Fall In Love Again. And you know what?  You just might fall in love again – with classic soul music at the very least (because you already fell in love with it before, right?) as she channels the best of the early seventies golden era on this cut from Colemine

DELVON LAMARR ORGAN TRIO: Cold As Weiss

Like its predecessor Jimmy’s Groove released at the start of the month, new Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio single Cold As Weiss is a solely digital release. At the moment anyway, though if there are no plans for wax ultimately, I suspect there will a clamour for it before much longer. Why? Because this is essentially two minutes, forty seconds of ice-cold funky class. Apparently a celebration of

DELVON LAMARR ORGAN TRIO: Jimmy’s Groove (Vinyl 7″)

DELVON LAMARR ORGAN TRIO: Jimmy's GrooveCurrently in digital format only (though eventually it will be part of a Pt 1/ Pt 2 45), is new Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio single, Jimmy’s Groove. Initially, it’s a relatively sparse arrangement, consisting mainly of a fat drum-break, bass and organ (naturally) in that order, though the guitar contribution picks up increasingly from rhythmic chops and stabs around a quarter of the way in to

THE FREEDOM AFFAIR: Freedom Is Love (Vinyl LP)

THE FREEDOM AFFAIR: Freedom Is Love (Vinyl LP)If you missed the autumn release of Freedom Is Love, the debut LP by Kansas City soul outfit The Freedom Affair, maybe now’s a good time to check-in, given its imminent release on vinyl. And while that’s an excellent reason for showing some interest, the main one is actually the rich soul power of this nine-piece outfit (a six-piece bandand three soul sister vocalists) which rivals

COLEMINE RECORDS: Brighter Days Ahead (Double vinyl LP)

Brighter Days Ahead (Double vinyl LP)When Covid hit last year, Colemine Records figured that in the absence of gigs, with pressing plants closed and tours off the menu for the foreseeable, maybe their normal release schedule wasn’t quite the thing. And so they flipped the script and came up with their Brighter Days Ahead summer single series. The idea was simple – release a single every Friday throughout the
