Genre: Disco, Funk, Soul, RnB / Label: Universal Music

There are literally dozens of Motown compilation CDs available, one for almost every occasion. The Northern Soul scene is the famous underground soul dance music scene that became popular in the north west of England in the late 60s and early 70s. The scene thrived on the discovery of rare American soul singles with a dance beat that was heavily influenced by the Motown label's trademark sound. Many of the more obscure least successful Motown acts became popular on the scene.

Séga is the traditional music of Mauritius (a small island off the coast of Madagascar) and is known as the “blues” of the Indian Ocean. The music was born during the 17th to 19th centuries by African slaves seeking relief from harsh conditions in sugar cane fields and on colonial land by dancing to improvised music incorporating rhythms from their homelands in West Africa, Mozambique, Zanzibar or Madagascar. From these diverse African influences sprang a new, insular dance and music, the séga.

One of the great blues albums of the early '80s, Classified captures the legendary New Orleans pianist James Booker not long before his premature death at the age of 43 on November 8, 1983. Recorded in a series of sometimes problematic sessions in 1982 – producer Scott Billington details them in his terrific liner notes on the 2013 reissue of the record, which is remixed and expanded – Classified appeared just a few months before Booker's death, so it's hard not to read it as something of a final statement.

This is not a new idea: in 2001 the English label Indigo produced a collection of Beatles songs by British and American blues artists. That was patchy, and so is this. The Beatles' heavy-handed treatment of "Why Don't We Do It in the Road?" was intended (surely?) to be a joke, so for Jimmy Thackery and the Drivers to roll it flat like a steamroller is kind of missing the point. Pity it's the first track. In fact it's a pity the whole album wasn't reshuffled, because the best stuff only begins to appear about halfway through. Maria Muldaur's reading of "Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da" leeches out all its cuteness, Chris Duarte's guitar-playing in "I'm So Tired" belies the title, Charlie Musselwhite and Colin Linden go arm-in-arm with harmonica and guitar to take "Dear Prudence" for a long walk and Linden also makes a pretty country blues in the style of Mississippi John Hurt out of "Blackbird".

Odunsi is the engine in the nascent alte scene. On his debut full-length album, the Naija singer draws from ‘80s and ‘90s pop culture as well as personal reflections, with guests like Nasty C and Santi adding their magic. “It’s my time, and nobody can tell me nothing”, sings Odunsi over the dreamy, keyboard-infused title track. And with songs like “take me there” and its pulsating bass chords, a collab with Davido on “divine” and the funky percussive rhythm of “outcast”—where he recounts a life that has taken him from high-school dropout to rising star—it’s hard to disagree with his claim.

Blind Pig's 2002 release Mighty Joe Young is a compilation that picks from Mighty Joe Young's Ovation releases Chicken Heads (1974) and Mighty Joe Young (1976). These are generally considered to be among Young's best work, yet they have been out of print for years and never have appeared on CD. Thankfully, this collection picks the 12 best tracks from these records, bringing back into circulation the work that showcases Young at his best. While it would have been nice to have these two albums in their entirety in their original running order, the music is so good and so rare, it's nice just to have it out officially, since this is the place to go to hear him at his best.

It seems the older a singer’s voice gets from the wear and tear of performing night in and night out can take a toll in their vocal quality. Thankfully, that does not fit this scenario for one of urban adult contemporary music’s finest, Peabo Bryson. After over three decades anchored by many top 25 R&B charting hits including “Feel The Fire,” “Show and Tell” and the classic pairing with Regina Belle, “A Whole New World.” his distinctive tenor soars soulfully with style and grace, Now writing another chapter in his stellar career, Bryson joins the legendary production duo in Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, alongside producer/musician John Jackson (En Vogue). With all this noteworthy teamwork, Bryson’s new CD, "Stand for Love" via Jam and Lewis’ Perspective Records label, worth the extended wait.

"I was working as a bellhop in Atlantic Beach, and had just written my first song. One day I was at a candy store near my house in Washington Heights, and a girl I knew walked in with Bobby – who was working as a janitor in the neighborhood. He was impressed because I was big-time; I'd just had my first song 'In All Of My Dreams' published. We walked over to the girl's place, where she had a piano. Bobby proceeded to play me five songs; I said 'Let's team up, and we'll be the biggest thing in the business'."
