Booker T & The MGsBest Of Booker T & The MGs (with bonus tracks) ... CD

What can we say? Booker T and crew are always tops in our book – and this album's as strong a batch of their classic singles as you'll ever find!

New Erotic Drum BandCollection ... CD
Prism/Unidisc (Canada), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2CD .... $11.99
A collection of club tracks from the Erotic Drum Band – a group with a sound that definitely lives up to their name! Most of the numbers here build up heavily from percussion on the bottom – sometimes raw congas layered in among the basslines and keyboards, sometimes rhythms that are a bit more convention disco – but always great work throughout, with a depth that goes way beyond the cheesiness of the group's name! The 2CD package features album tracks and rare singles – a whopping 15 long numbers in all, with titles that include "Love Disco Style", "Action 78 (edit)", "Jerky Rhythm", "Love Christmas Style", "Touch Me Where It's Hot", "Dance In Your Pants", "Sweet Seduction", "Everybody Get Dancin", and "Horny".

Jackson 5Come & Get It – Rare Pearls (2CDs & 7" single) ... CD
Motown, Early 70s. Used .... $19.99
An amazing little package, and one that definitely lives up to the Rare Pearls promised in the title – as it served up nearly three albums' worth of unreleased tracks from the Motown vaults – all recorded during the glory days of the young Jackson 5! The quality level is amazing – work that would have been more than enough to get other groups a hit – and the tracks show the group really working new things out in the studio – yet always with a poise and polish that nobody else could even hope to touch! These aren't demos, or backing tracks – but fully-finished, completely-cooked tracks that come together like a pile of lost Jackson 5 albums from the 70s – an amazing document of the group's strength, given how many other tracks from the years have already been released. Some cuts have a surprisingly funky edge – more so than we know from some of their albums – and in addition to two CDs' worth of music, the 7" box also features a bonus 45, a great book, and a sticker too! Titles include "Music Makers", "Keep Off The Grass", "If You Want Heaven", "Our Love", "Makin Life A Little Easier For You", "Mama Told Me Not To Come", "I Got A Sure Thing", "If The Shoe Don't Fit", "You Better Watch Out", "I'm Your Sunny One", "Someone's Standing In My Love Light", "Love Trip", "Label Me Love", and "Jumbo Sam".

Rainbow TeamSong For You ... CD
PTG (France), 1982. Used .... $8.99
Rainbow Team, where have you been all our lives? You're a heck of a great little group – and we love the sound you've got on this second album! Sure, we know you're wearing a bunch of silly day-glo costumes on the cover – and that's probably what's made this record slip by our crates in the past – but one listen to the tightness of your grooves, and we're more than willing to forgive you for any bad fashion choices! The sound of the set is totally great – soaring along in the best sort of 80s groove mode – with tight snapping rhythms at the bottom, and a full set of arrangements that bring in some added horns and just the right amount of sweetening strings. And although Rainbow Team are Italian, the record's got a stone American soul sound – very much like the best of the Capitol Rare generation in the US. Titles include "A Song For You", "Let Em Be", "Please Let's Go", "Bite The Apple", "Hope He Wants", "Let's Forget", and "Don't Cry For Me". CD features the bonus track "Stay". CD

New Minnie RipertonPerfect Angel (Japanese version) ... CD
Epic (Japan), 1974. Used .... $16.99
Minnie Riperton's first album for Epic – and the record that broke her from a hip Chicago underground artist into one of the seventies' biggest soul divas! The record moves past the baroque soul of Minnie's early years with Rotary Connection and Charles Stepney – and hits a mix of mellow compressed LA styles and slicker funkier numbers that do the same thing for her Chicago-trained vocals that Rufus' backing did for that of Chaka Khan. Of course, it helps that she's got some superbly sensitive writing and arranging help by husband Richard Rudolph – and Stevie Wonder's definitely lurking in the background, too. Includes Minnie's huge crossover hit "Loving You", a perfect showcase for her beautiful 5 octave voice, plus the tracks "Our Lives", "Every Time He Comes Around", "Perfect Angel", and "Reasons". CD

Allen ToussaintAllen Toussaint Songbook ... CD
Rounder, 2013. Used .... $4.99
A wonderfully intimate set from Allen Toussaint – one that features Toussaint at the piano, working in a live setting, and serving up new versions of his own famous compositions – often with some great pre-song patter that gives a bit of background on the tunes! The performance is a great back to basics moment for Allen – one that's far rootsier than most of his other recent projects, and which has this sense of history that's quite strong – a great reminder of the many years he's been setting the world on fire with his music. Titles include "It's Raining", "Lipstick Traces", "Holy Cow", "With You In Mind", "It's A New Orleans Thing", "Southern Nights", "Get Out Of My Life Woman", and "Who's Gonna Help Brother Get Further".

VariousShrine – The Rarest Soul Label Ever ... CD
Shrine/Kent (UK), Late 60s. Used .... $9.99
What is it with these British labels that think that they need to just put "rare" or "rarest" in the title, and the record will be desirable? Fortunately, in this case, the formula actually lives up to its ploy, and this set of 24 tracks from the rare Washington DC Shrine label is a nifty batch of 60s soul stormers, with more of a Detroit sound than you'd guess! Titles include "Fall Guy" by The Cautions, "My Only Love" by The Counts, "Don't Let Him Hurt You" by Les Chansonettes, "Stop Overlooking Me" by The Cairos, "Guess Who Loves You" by Eddie Dave & The 4 Bars, "Let Me Walk Away" by Tippie & The Wisemen, "The Weekend" by Sidney Hall, and "I Know About Her" by The DC Blossoms. Nice stuff, and as you've guessed, you'll never find the originals! CD

New Edwin BirdsongDance Of Survival (with bonus track) ... CD
Bamboo/Shout (Japan), 1975. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Tripped out funky soul from the great Edwin Birdsong – a rare indie album released between his years at Polydor and Philly International! The set's got a wilder sound than any of his other work – kind of a righteous funk set for the dancefloor – recorded with lots of weird production touches, edgey guitar bits, and a style that's almost psychedelic-folk-jazz-disco! Birdsong's lyrics are more "out there" than ever, and there's some great spacey production that really makes the whole thing sound great – and which gives the record a very cool feel that's unlike anything else we can think of. A real lost treasure from the 70s indie underground – with titles that include "Dance Of Survival", "What's Your Sign", "Night Of The Full Moon", "Astral Walk", and "Your Smile Gave Birth To My Idea". CD features the bonus 7" mix of "Dance Of Survival". CD
