New Bubbha Thomas & The LightmenCountry Fried Chicken (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Lightin/P-Vine (Japan), 1975. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
One of the strangest covers we've seen in years – and a perfect fit for this obscure session of unusual grooves! Drummer Bubbha Thomas is working here in a mode that's kind of an electrified 70s take on the Texas showband style of earlier years – a mode that has the core funky combo augmented by electric keys and moog in just the right places! The tunes on the set are all instrumentals – jamming along in a sweet little style that mixes funky jazz with some of the rougher touches of the indie 45 scene – letting the band stretch out on extended solos on most cuts, but still keeping the rhythms very tight and in the pocket! In a way, the approach almost feels like some of the funkier work on Tribe Records from Detroit, especially on tracks that have more ambitious solo work. Players include Doug Harris on flute and tenor, Ronnie Laws on tenor, John Henderson on electric piano, and a young Hugh Ragin on trombone – and titles include "Herbs Of Life", "Sweet Ray", "Famous Last Words", "Country Fried Chicken", and "Survival Song".

CommodoresNightshift ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1985. New Copy .... $13.99
By this point in their career, The Commodores have lost Lionel Richie and any sort of funk credibility they had from their early years – but they also somehow manage to reemerge with a great new talent for a sweet mellow groove! The title tune "Nightshift" was one of those tracks that crossed over massively at the time – but to our ears, it also kind of redeemed the group too – as it's got a surprisingly soulful quality that really got the group past the soppiness of their ballads and love songs – gliding along with an almost-righteous quality that makes it a nice later cap to an earlier Motown 70s groove. Other tunes on the album don't always fare as well, but there's still some nice moments here – tunes that benefit from some Dennis Lambert production and hit just the right kind of mellow groove to follow up on the spirit of the single. Tracks include "Nightshift", "Slip Of The Tongue", "Lay Back", "Lightin Up The Night", and "The Woman In My Life". CD

Al WilsonShow & Tell ... CD
Rocky Road/Essential, 1973. New Copy .... $13.99 14.99
A classic bit of LA crossover soul, with the huge hit "Show & Tell" – a track that broke Al Wilson out for and became a worthy staple of 70s AM radio – but beyond that, it's a totally great record for Wilson! Arrangements are by H.B. Barnum, so you can expect a nice depth of soul in with Al's more theatrical performance style. Al's at his most charismatic throughout the set, definitely up there with his best work. Otther cuts include "Queen Of The Ghetto", "What You See", "Moonlightin", and "For Cryin' Out Loud". CD
(This is an on-demand title printed in limited quantities.)
