Never Say You Can't Survive was the last Curtis Mayfield album done in a pure soul vein for the next three years – its style and sound place it in a direct continuity with the rest of his output right back to 1958. The singing on love songs such as "Show Me Love," "Just Want to Be With You," and "When We're Alone" is among the most achingly lyrical and passionate of his career. The title track boasts ravishing backup singing by Kitty & the Haywoods (who also perform outstandingly on "I'm Gonna Win Your Love") and a beautiful arrangement by James Mack.

Less sociopolitical than previous efforts, Give Get Take Have offers "Mr. Welfare Man" as its sole attempt to enlighten and enhance. Mayfield was obviously experiencing the joys of new love when he cut "Only You Babe" and "This Love Is Sweet," and the tear-jerking numbers "In Your Arms Again" and "Party Night." His aching falsetto coos and purrs, but sounds weakened on this LP. Overall, the album falls short of Mayfield's former releases, but even great artists don't always achieve their usual high standards. Never Say You Can't Survive was the last Curtis Mayfield album done in a pure soul vein for the next three years.

Curtis Mayfield did it all, from playing guitar to arranging and producing recording sessions to running his own label. He also wrote songs, and great ones, like "People Get Ready," that should make the personal, social, and political soundtrack of just about everyone in the late 20th century. He also wrote scores of beautiful love songs, all of which sounded exactly like Curtis Mayfield, which was great if you got it, pretty repetitive if you didn't. This set features 15 of Mayfield's post-Impressions love songs, including the almost-country "Dirty Laundry," the gentle and assured "What You Gawn Do?," and a soothing plea for solace, "Just Ease My Mind," but there's a whole lot more of them out there.

Label: Icon For Hire | Release Year: 2016

“You Can’t Kill Us” is the third studio album by American rock band Icon For Hire. Icon For Hire hosted a kick starter campaign which received over $120,000 in backings despite a $2,016 goal. Rewards included three songs being released every three months. The female fronted rock act has built a bulletproof reputation in their years of creating stellar, hard hitting songs. “You Can’t Kill Us” is the title track from the band album and if this is any indication, the collection will be a force to be reckoned with.

Soul, Funk, R&B | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 71 min | 165 MB
Label: Shout | Rel: 2012

The O'Jays had an extensive recording career, taking in stints for several labels before they become big stars with their Philadelphia International hits in the 1970s. A large chunk of their pre-'70s discography was on Imperial, and this compilation contains 28 tracks they put out with the company between 1963 and 1966. Although some of these were low- to moderate-charting singles, the group really didn't hit either a commercial or artistic stride during this period. A lot of that was due to failing to find much of a musical identity. Some of the songs bridge doo wop with early soul; some are a little in an early New Orleans soul style, like their version of Allen Toussaint's "Lipstick Traces"; some are, like much soul of the time, very Motown-influenced, and some of the more orchestrated arrangements show the influence of hitmakers like the Righteous Brothers and the Drifters (whose "On Broadway" is heavily echoed by "I'm Gonna Make It").
