Diddys featuring Paige DouglasAgony & Extasy (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Bam-Boo/Shout (Japan), 1977. New Copy .... $19.99
A very cool, really rare soul album from the Philly scene – one that was written, produced, and arranged by Hammond organist Charles Earland – but which is a sweet soul album with a really great feel! There's definitely a touch of Earland's keyboard work on the set – especially some of those non-organ lines he brought to his records for Mercury – and there's a jazzy groove that really sets The Diddys apart from other east coast groups of the time – a more complex approach to rhythm and instrumentation that almost makes some of the tunes feel as if they came from the James Mason side of the spectrum! The whole thing's wonderful – as unique as it is rare – and titles include "Intergalactic Love Song", "Strange Love", "Your Love Is Like A See Saw Baby", "How Long Have You Loved Him", and "My Special Love". CD features lots of bonus tracks – alternate takes of nearly every number on the record! CD

Last PoetsLast Poets/This Is Madness (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Douglas/Snapper (UK), 1970/1971. New Copy 2CD .... $15.99 17.98
The first two Last Poets albums back to back in one great 2CD set! The Last Poets is the first album by the second group to call themselves the Last Poets – and as fierce a document of their rich talents as you'll ever find – bursting forth with anger and righteousness at a level as tight as Gil Scott-Heron's first album! The group here is the key second lineup of the ensemble of wordsmiths – comprised of Abiodun Oyewole, Alafia Pudim, and Omar Ben Hassan, plus the percussionist Nilaja – and most cuts feature only spare percussion backing over the spoken protest poetry – delivered with a brutal edge that really sums up the righteous politics of the time. Titles include "Run, N*gger", "On The Subway", "When The Revolution Comes", "Jones Comin' Down", "Black Thighs", "N*ggers Are Scared Of Revolution", and "Wake Up, N*ggers" – all of which should give you a good picture of what's going on with the record! This Is Madness is one of the Last Poets' greatest albums – and one of their most sophisticated as well! Gone are the rough-hewn rhymes of the group's first album, and in their place are better arranged, more thought-out tracks that mix in a wealth of musical influences – and which expand the group's verbal expression past simple protests, and into the realm of Jazzoetry that became their trademark during the mid 70s. Tracks include "Related to What", "Black Is", "White Man's Got a God Complex", "Black People What Y'All Gonna Do", and "This is Madness" – and a number of tracks are preceded by strong and forceful chants before the lyrics kick in! Deluxe package comes with 2 CDs – and bonus tracks that include "Sport" and "Spoon" by Lightnin Rod – plus "Doriella Du Fontaine", which features Lightnin Rod and Jimi Hendrix! CD

KainBlue Guerrilla ... LP
Juggernaut, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
One of the rawest, hardest-hitting albums of soul poetry of the 70s! Kain – aka Gylan Kain – was a member of the original Last Poets, a group who emerged in New York during the late 60s, but were eclipsed by the second (more famous) ensemble sharing the name who recorded for Douglas Records. Kain's anger and passion is incredible – far stronger than anything you'd hear on any of the better-known Last Poets records of the early 70s – and this solo record is completely over the top, both politically and performance-wise. The record has a hard hard hard sound – with over-the-top spoken bits that almost make the other Last Poets seem like they're kind of mellow. Cuts include "Silly Sh*t", "Harlem Preacher", "I Ain't Black", and "Constipated Monkey". Juggy Murray produced – and the album's a wild wild trip! LP, Vinyl record album

Last PoetsRight On! ... LP
Juggernaut, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue).... $9.99
One of the wildest albums ever by the mighty Last Poets! Billed as "a woodstock in poetry", this is the soundtrack to the obscure film Right On (billed as "the hit film" on the cover), which was shot using the first version of the Last Poets that included Felipe Lucianao, David Nelson, and the wild card Gylan Kain – a group who originally had the name and style of protest poetry, but who had been eclipsed when the poet Abiodun left them and formed the group that first recorded for Douglas Records. The album, sort of a "we're back" effort, was produced by Juggy Murray, and apparently all recorded at the Cubiculo Theatre in New York – and it's one of two albums on the Juggernaut label, which also featured Kain's solo record. Most of the record is spare percussion, with the band shouting over the top – and the sound is even rawer than the group's first LP on Douglas. The titles should say it all – as the record features "My Pretty N*gger", "Tell Me Brother", "Die Nigga!", "James Brown", "Soul", "Poetry Is Black", "Into The Streets", and "Library", clearly a big influence on KRS-1.

VariousSweet N Salty Popcorn ... CD
Croydon Municipal (UK), Early 60s. New Copy .... $13.99
A bit soul, a bit pop, a bit vocal – and a wonderful batch of tunes pulled together in support of the "popcorn" sound of the Belgian scene! The popcorn groove is different than Northern Soul, but shares a similar love of old vinyl – in this case a compelling blend of songs from a range of different sources, almost all of which have a hip stepping rhythm at the bottom, perfect for a different sort of soulful dancefloor! Some cuts showcase well-crafted vocals over the groove, others are instrumental, and the mix of artists here is really unusual – hardly talents you'd expect to hear together on the same collection, until you pop in the CD and dig its wonderful grooves. The package was put together for St Etienne's Croydon Municipal label, and has a feel that's every bit as playful as their imagined "Songs For" series – and titles include "To The One I Love" by Roy Hamilton, "Find Another Girl" by Jerry Butler, "Continental Strut" by Little Iva, "La Tanya" by Jay Abbott, "Some Of Your Lovin" by Johnny Nash, "The Tingle" by Jackie Weaver, "Johnny With The Gentle Hands" by Eartha Kitt, "River In My Blood" by Steve Karmen, "Elephant Walk" by Donald & The Delighters, and "Oh What A Day" by Craig Douglas.

New Mai TaiMai Tai (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Critique/FTG, 1985/1986. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare 80s grooves from female soul trio Mai Tai – carrying an effervescent post disco soul groove well into the mid 80s on this self-titled album from 1985 – plus a handful of bonus tracks! Mai Tai never really got over in the States, but made a pretty pronounced impact in the Dutch scene where the group formed, with a clean Euro electro soul sheen to the tracks courtesy of producers Eric Van Tajn & Jochem Fluitsma – but it's the vocals that really charm on this one. Corolien De Windt, Jetty Weels and Mildred Douglas bring true soul in their dynamic lead vocals and big backing vocals, and they really shine! Titles include "History", "Body & Soul", "Chemistry", "What, Where, When, Who", "You Control Me", "Am I Losing You Forever" and more – plus bonus tracks including 12" mixes and some later singles, including "History" (12" extended mix), "1 Touch 2 Much", and more. 14 tracks in all!

New Master Plan IncMaster Plan Inc ... CD
Jazzman (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Previously unreleased work from an excellent Chicago soul group – Master Plan Inc, a group with deep roots in the Windy City scene, but hardly ever any presence in the record racks! The combo worked together heavily throughout the 70s – and you can really hear that in their grooves on this set – tunes that are better-crafted than most of their contemporaries' work, and played with this sharp edge that really belies the indie status of the act. The ensemble's got a punch that's past the usual smaller group sound of the funky 45 generation – yet they still have all the rawness of that era too, and none of the disco or boogie modes you might guess from the date of these recordings. Drums are especially nice, and really kick strongly on most numbers – and the set's got some especially nice notes, which feature personal reflections from grup leader Frederick Douglas Shorts. Titles include "Bright Lights Big City", "Heartbreaker", "Bag Up", "Try It You'll Like It", "Younger Generation", "You", "Something To Be Done", and "Special Love". CD
