(Sleazy Records) ´Voodoo Man´ is a catchy Rhythm & Blues number to enjoy on the radio or the dancefloor, which seduces you from the first listening and quickly makes your body move. Flipping the record, Lola Lola pay tribute to Curtis Knight, with their take on ´Voodoo Woman´, a magnificent and heartfelt prayer by a needy soul, which they convey with the rawness innate to great tunes.

Italoconnection sind Fred Ventura und Paolo Gozzetti, Brüder im Geiste der 80er Italo Disco. Sie haben schon Remixes für Human League, Hurts, Ou Est Les Swimming Pool u.v.a. gemacht. Italoconnection is the result of over twenty years of friendship and occasional creative meeting between two electronic underground scene agit-props in Milan. Fred Ventura and Paolo Gozzetti produced, arranged and mixed a host of dancefloor tracks in their individual careers with great continuity and clarity of intent. Around 2010 they decided to join their forces and give more continuity to their electronic raids using the pseudonym Italoconnection. The aim was to revive the glories of the early 80s Italo Disco in a modern form. The Human League, Hurts, Ou Est Les Swimming Pool, Raffaella Destefano and Flabby are just some of the artists who have been remixed by italoconnection. After 7 years of success and numerous releases the band comes out with first full length album containing simply amazing mixture of melody, sound and athmosphere. Now the time has come for a CD format of it released exclusively by Analog Language. The AL release contains previously unreleased material on bonus CD2, such as remixes and instrumental versions.
Ladylike heiress Audrey Weathersby is careful to never rock her family´s boats.

While her friends tear up the dancefloor, however, Audrey meets the foil to her suppressed desires and curiosity.Dylan. The resident bad girl with an affinity for good girls like Audrey.What begins as a torrid fling soon transforms into something that opens Audrey´s eyes to the life she´s always wanted. The longer she´s with Dylan, the more she realizes the sources of her suffocation. A toxic family. Airheaded friends. Caring for nothing but the trappings of wealth.Dylan has dated her fair share of heiresses, but Audrey is the first one to make her believe in a chance at love.Yet it´s not easy to give over to someone like Audrey. She represents everything Dylan has spent her whole life rejecting, for she knows all too well what it´s like to be forced into the good girl role.And her past is constantly threatening to ruin everything she´s built for herself since her darkest days.The fatalistic love that haunts both Dylan and Audrey will last the summer. After that? Someone will have to give up the only life they´ve ever known.Easier said than done.Please note that this book contains examples of transphobia and growing up in an abusive cult. 1.

(Charly) 16 tracks ´What Foes Around, Turn Around´ runs on old maxim which still holds true. In music, as in all things to do with fashion, tastes go round in full circle. What was passe last year can well be this year´s in thing. We´ve seen *the return of the mini-skirt and now it´s the turn of 1960´s soul music to get a much deserved resurgence of popularity. Maybe it´s a sign that I´m getting old but — the explosion of rock ´n´ roll onto the scene around 1955 excepted — I can think of no other era or musical style which possessed quite the same measure of excitement and delightful discovery as did ´Sixties Soul. True, there have been many great records in the years since but I can´t imagine ever again feeling confident enough to place a standing order with my local record shop for every single release on not one but half-a-dozen labels, knowing that I´ll like every one of them! Sue, London American, Stateside, President, Jay Boy, Chess. Atlantic, Stax and Tamla Motown, were the much-sought-out UK labels amongst soul fans in those heady days. Now, two decades later, the music is ´coming back strong´ (to quote a Tony Clarke classic from the era) thanks initially to the efforts of such re-issue labels as Charly and, latterly, to the renewed chart status of oldies from the likes of Sam Cooke and Marvin Gaye, thanks to the use of the songs in TV commercials. Clubs up and down the land are playing the classic songs to a whole new audience while the faithful minority (and it isn´t a small one) who have never deserted the music have taken the chance to stock up on fresh copies of their well-worn favourites. I´ve a strong conviction that both groups will find plenty to entertain them in this great album. Birdlegs And Pauline : The British version of the Sue label, run for Island Records by that colourful character, the late Guy Stevens, was *prized by ´60s soul music collectors for unearthing the real rarities from the American RUB scene. Many were great. some were abysmal, all were interesting. ´´Spring´´ was one of the most talked about UK Sue issues, and one of the most obscure in origin (indeed, it wasn´t until sitting down to pen this present sleevenote that I discovered they had an *album issued, on the Cuca label). From that LP´s sleevenote I´ve gleaned the following information! It was the idea of Chicago bluesman Shakey Jake to put the two together — Birdlegs (aka Sidney Banks) and Pauline (a good friend of Pearl Bailey). Cut originally for Cuca. the quirky ´Spring´ was picked up by Ewan Abner (later to be a Motown exec) for release nationally on Vee Jay. Bob And Ear : Men of many names, Bob and Earl first rocked the emergent British disco scene with the emminently danceable ´Harlem Shuffle´ back in 1963 but it wasn´t until re-release in 1969 that it cracked the UK top-ten. Bobby Relf also recorded as Bobby Garrett while his partner Earl Nelson also masqueraded on records — with some success — as Earl Cosby, Jackie Lee and Jay Dee. Just to further clarify things, the original Bob in the duo had been Bobby Byrd. otherwise known as Bobby Day, of ´Rockin´ Robin´ fame! * The original pairing had emerged from the Hollywood Flames. for whom Nelson sang lead on the 1957 hit ´´Buzz Buzz´´, and recorded for Class until 1959 when Relf replaced Byrd. ´Harlem Shuffle´ was originally released in the US by Marc, one of several LA based labels for which they recorded, usually under the aegis of producer Fred Smith and arranger Barry White (later to be a soul superstar) who devised a totally distinctive sound. With the Rolling Stones´ recent cover version having returned that group to its ´60s R&B roots, the time seems ripe for the original ´´Harlem Shuffle´´ to return to the nation´s dance-floors. Barbara Lewis : A product of the Ollie McLoughlin stable, which also included Deon Jackson and the Capitols, Barbara Lewis had an R&B chart-topper in 1963 with the superb ballad ´Hello Stranger´´, leased from McLoughlin´s Carla label by Atlantic, and quickly scored again with ´Baby I´m Yours´ and ´Make Me Your Baby´. Shades Of Blue: Of Shades of Blue I know nothing except that they were a white Detroit based act and that their ´Oh How Happy´ was written by Edwin Starr and was widely performed by British soul acts in the late ´60s. It was released in the UK on Sue. Brenton Wood: Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, on July 26 1941, Los Angeles´ based Brenton Wood wasn´t a one-hit wonder, he was a two-hit wonder! It was Double Shot Records who
