Stone Foundation Everybody, Anyone Everybody, Anyone features 11 new songs and as before, there’s a sprinkling of guest musicians who feature on the album including Kathryn Williams, Dr Robert, Mick Talbot, Steve White, & The Average White Band’s Hamish Stuart. And unable to stay away, Paul Weller (who produced and featured on the last album) sneaks back in with a bit of piano, guitar and BVs on a couple of tracks. Everybody, Anyone sees a harder, heavier funk vibe than it’s predecessor but with the great grooves comes great songs. Talking about the album, bassist Neil Sheasby says: “In recent years I’ve heard a lot of records with great grooves but there’s no song, the message & melodies were still key to the records creation. To me it sounds like a very cohesive collection of tunes, a body of work that hangs well as a complete album. The next natural step for Stone Foundation” 100% CD | LP
Stone Foundation A Life Unlimited The fourth full length studio album from Stone Foundation. 'A Life Unlimited' features contributions from Graham Parker (The Night Teller), US soul stalwart Nolan Porter (Beverley), vocal harmony group The Four Perfections (Pushing Your Love) and Blow Monkeys frontman Doctor Robert Howard (A Love Uprising). 'A Life Unlimited' sees Stone Foundation develop their unique style of soul, funk & jazz to a much broader scale. Horn driven arrangements add colour to an inspired display of songs that are unquestionably the group's strongest to date. Thought provoking lyrics and strong melodies sit upon a stylish musical bed.

Paul Weller Paul Weller Reissue of the 1992 debut solo album by Paul Weller. The album represents something of a return to Weller's 'roots', with Into Tomorrow and Uh Huh Oh Yeh in particular being heavily influenced by 60s R&B. "'Uh Huh Oh Yeh' – and, after it, the Stanley Road album – was me revisiting my roots," he said. "I hadn't been down to Woking in a long time. That was the first time, in the early '90s, when I was finding my feet again." The album as a whole retained some of the funk influences displayed by The Style Council, particularly on I Didn't Mean To Hurt You and Remember How We Started. Tellingly, however, the political leanings of The Style Council are - explicitly at least - abandoned; the lyrical themes visited on the album being much more personal. UMC LP

Paul Weller True Meanings The fourteenth full length album from Paul Weller, rapidly following on from his critically acclaimed 2017 album A Kind Revolution. ‘True Meanings’ is a record unlike any he has ever made before. It is not “a departure”, in the sense that soul bearing, melancholic songs have always been an important part of what he does: from ‘English Rose’, to ‘Brand New Start’, right up to ‘The Ballad Of Jimmy McCabe’ from last year’s ‘Jawbone’ soundtrack. But never, ever before has he allowed himself an entire album to exhibit this side of his song-writing, or presented them quite like this. Parlophone CD | LP
