There's definitely a need for a thorough career retrospective of Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes: one covering their '50s and '60s period, the hit-filled run headed by Teddy Pendergrass during the first half of the '70s, and even the group's less viable post-Pendergrass years. Of course, with the maze of record companies involved, this is a tall order. So, those wanting to check out the group should start with this collection of their prime Philadelphia International hits. Although only containing eight tracks, Collectors Items has most of the chart-toppers, including "If You Don't Know Me By Now," "Wake Up Everybody," and "The Love I Lost." The slick, Philly bump groove marks most of the material, showing why producers Leon Huff and Kenny Gambell, as well as arranger Thom Bell, deserve a good portion of credit for their label's success beyond having a major impact on the black music scene, the Philly Sound, like Motown and Stax before, had substantial crossover appeal as well, influencing the likes of David Bowie and Elton John. And with Pendergrass' soul-fire, gospel-drenched vocal delivery lighting up extended cuts like "Bad Luck" and "Where Are All My Friends," not to mention most of the numbers here, the smooth musical backdrops are infused with just the right amount of grit. A great collection, topped off with a fine duet featuring Pendergrass and future Blue Notes singer Sharon Paige. If you feel the need for a more thorough collection than this budget-price release, check out Epic's 15-track If You Don't Know Me By Now: The Best of Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, which covers the same mid-'70s period.

Les Grands Angles...
Betty Davis, la panthère funk

Sans elle, point de Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse ou Janelle Monáe ! Partie au paradis le 9 février 2022, Betty Davis reste la pionnière des soul sisters félines. La déesse funk par excellence. Egalement celle qui offrit l’électricité à un certain Miles Davis, dont elle sera l’éphémère épouse. Mais qui étais-tu Betty ?

Ray Charles, styliste sous influence

Père fondateur de la soul dont la carrière a duré un demi-siècle, Ray Charles ne saurait se résumer à la poignée de tubes que tout le monde connaît. C’est surtout le maître du crossover musical, la variété haut de gamme qui fait du mélange des genres un art, en approche un pour mieux embrasser l’autre. Ray Charles a sécularisé le gospel, enrichi le blues, joué du jazz, chanté de la country et frôlé le rock’n’roll. Retour sur son style unique fondé sur les cinq qui précèdent.

Curtis Mayfield, Black Music Matters

Guitariste esthète adulé par Hendrix, chanteur au falsetto démentiel vénéré par Prince et songwriter de haute volée, Curtis Mayfield sculptait des symphonies mêlant funk, gospel et soul en cinémascope. Vingt ans après sa mort, sa musique engagée colle toujours aussi bien à l’Amérique.
