Brown Bombers & Soul PartnersWait For Me/Just Fun ... 7-inch
Numero, Late 60s. New Copy ... $5.99
The Brown Bombers come on here with plenty of firepower – soaring with the groove on "Wait For Me" – which has an upbeat Northern soul groove and some great harmonies to match! "Just Fun" follows in a similar spirit – an instrumental groove that echoes the vocal number on the a-side, but with some cool strings and guitar getting a bit more room to open up in the mix! 7-inch, Vinyl record

DVDFun Slides – Slides For Kids (DVD) ... DVD
PDP Productions, 2011. New Copy ... $2.99 19.99
The Chicago steppers scene hits the junior crowd – and comes up with a host of simpler slides for younger dancers! The package is billed as being for kids, but actually works well for anyone who finds some of the more complicated steps too difficult (like us, if you've ever seen us on the dancefloor!) New slides include "Tambourine", "Wobble", "Cupid Slide", and "The Turbo Slide" – and the set has the delightfully grass roots packaging of some of the other Chicago steppers DVDs we've stocked! DVD

FatnicePeace Love Unity & Havin Fun (Lil' Dave Fun Size mix, Windy City mix)/My Favorite Things (Buscates Vibrate mix) ... 7-inch
Record Breakin, 2014. New Copy (pic cover)... $9.99
Not a cover of the Afrika Bambaataa classic of the same name – although the cut does borrow the chorus for its own – and instead some mighty fresh work from Fatnice, set to some crackling cosmic beats! Our favorite is the stripped-down "windy city mix", which has a brasness the Lil Dave mix is missing – and the flipside features Fatnice's own take on the concept of "Favorite Things" – served up with this true school vibe that should make him huge, if the world has any sense of justice! 7-inch, Vinyl record

XMore Fun In The New World (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Elektra/Real Gone, 1983. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
The last true masterpiece by the greatest rock band to ever come out of the late 70s and early 80s L.A. scene. More Fun In The New World serves in a lot of ways as X's upright middle finger to the early years of the Reagan era, with the anthemic opener "The New World", and the ballad "I Must Not Think Bad Thoughts", perfectly encapsulating the fear and loathing brought about by the ridiculous politics that infected the entire decade. The album is very much a sequel to the amazing Under The Big Black Sun, full of razor pop anthems, Billy Zoom's punkabilly guitar acrobatics, and amazing depth thanks to John and Exene's sensitive and perceptive song writing. Awesome! Other tracks include "True Love", "We're Having Much More Fun", "Poor Girl", "Make The Music Go Bang", "Devil Doll", "Painting The Town Blue", "Hot House", "Drunk In My Past", "I See Red", and "True Love Part 2". 4 bonus tracks: demo/alternate mixes of "Poor Girl", "True Love Part 2", "Devil Doll", and "I Must Not Think Bad Thoughts".

Tommy Stewart (of "Bump N Hustle Music" fame) wrote and arranged this tight batch of instrumental groovers for Salsoul, and the record's got more of a funk sound than you'd expect from the label. There are some nice choppy funk tracks with a harmonica in the frontline, and a bit of a War/Lee Oskar groove in that sense. Titles include "Hey Music Man", "Hambone", "Win or Lose", and "Big Fat Juicy Fun". CD

The tune's a wicked stepper that sounds even better in this edit – and it's backed with "Love Ain't Just No Fun" – a two-step bumper that's mighty nice too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New DaytonHot Fun/Feel The Music ... CD
Liberty/Expansion (UK), 1981/1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
80s groove galore – a pair of classic albums form Dayton! Hot Fun is a wonderfully sweet groover from Dayton – a group that's equal parts modern soul and 80s groove – and outta site all the way! The album's big title hit is a remake of Sly Stone's classic "Hot Fun In The Summertime", done in such a way that it's got a cool skating stepper's groove to it – and set amidst some jazzy riffing and ensemble vocals that are totally great. The rest of the album follows in a similar mode – really bouncy and joyous, with mixed male and female vocals stepping out over a set of lean, mean 80s groovers that should have been huge! Tracks include "Hot Fun", "Patiently", "We Can't Miss", "Meet The Man", "Movin Up", and "Gunch". Feel The Music is a massively wonderful album from Dayton – an album that has the group really getting their groove together – still sticking a bit in the older funk mode from the past, but also bringing in some warmer, deeper touches to their music too! There's a solidness here that's undeniable – a balance of rhythms and instrumentation that few other soul groups of the time were hitting – topped by vocals that have a nice dose of jazz in the mix too, with the sort of sophistication you might expect to hear from some of Wayne Henderson's At Home productions. Production is nice and warm, never too cold or commercial – and titles include the group's great cut "The Sound Of Music" – not the theme from the Broadway show, but a great two-stepper that's instantly infectious – plus "Caught In The Middle", "It Must Be Love", "Promise Me", and "Lookin Up".

DJ SpinnaCompositions 2 EP ... LP
Female Fun, 2002. Sealed ... $11.99
DJ Spinna's fantastic Compositions 2 – for the most part, find Spinna in his most mellow and tripped out mode. The purely hip hop, tightly clipped beats bear Spinna's patented forward momentum, but the spare accompanying parts are all about a hypnotic, trippy swirl. Flanged out instrument samples fill the air, and the trippy keys remind us of the best Jay Dee productions. Tracks include ""Sunshine", "Platinum", "Verbz", "Dayz", "Starz" and "Germz".

Alessandro Alessandroni/Gianfranco PlenizioLa Signora Gioca Bene A Scopa/L'Infermiera ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1974/1975. New Copy ... $16.99
A duo of mid 70s Italian erotic comedy scores – Alessandro Alessandroni's La Signora Gioca Bene A Scopa and Gianfranco Plenizio's L'Inermiera from '74 and '75 – back-to-back! La Signora Gioca Bene A Scopa features fun waltzy numbers with tinkering keys and sweet strings, and some of the most playfully out there vocalism we've ever heard Edda Dell'Orso! Includes 19 sequences of the title theme. L'Infermiera features a fairly straight, nicely groovy score by Gianfranco Plenizio with style to spare – from laidback & jazzy to more playful with grooves with oddball comic sound flourishes. Includes 12 variations on the title theme. CD

Atlantic StarrAtlantic Starr (with bonus track) ... CD
A&M/PTG (Netherlands), 1978. New Copy ... $18.99
The first album by Atlantic Starr – a tight set of modern soul tunes with a very different feel than their later work! Part of the credit goes to Bobby Eli – who arranged and produced the set, giving it a feel that's almost late Philly – tight, sophisticated, and right on the money at all the best points! There's a number of sweet mellow ballads with lead vocals by Sharon Bryant, and other tracks that groove in an uptempo way that points towards more of the group's 80s work – a great mix of modes that makes for a really well-developed album right out of the gate. Titles include "Gimme Your Lovin", "The Love I Never Had", "Visions", "Keep It Comin", "Stand Up", "Where There's Smoke There's Fire", "We Got It Together", and "Being In Love With You Is So Much Fun". CD features a bonus track – "Stand Up (single version)". CD

New Bar-KaysFlying High On Your Love ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good ... $5.99
A great step forward for The Bar-Kays – an album that actually has them taking on a few mellower moments, amidst the heavy funk you might expect – yet all without softening their groove at all! The album's very much in the best spirit of the group's Mercury debut – still recorded in Memphis, with production that's tight, but never uptight – enough to firmly put the group at the top of the funk superstar scene of the mid 70s, yet never sell out the rich Memphis groove that first got them going! Titles include "You Can't Run Away", "Let's Have Some Fun", "Can't Keep My Hands Off You", "Whatever It Is", and "Shut the Funk Up". LP, Vinyl record album

The first live album from The Beach Boys – and a bit more straight than later live dates, but still pretty nice overall! Like their Party album from the 60s, this set shows a slightly different side of the group than their Brian Wilson-polished studio sessions – a bit more freewheeling but still incredibly harmonic, almost a glimpse at what it might have been like when they were just jamming around in the early days. Titles include "The Little Old Lady From Pasadena", "In My Room", "Monster Mash", "Let's Go Trippin", "Fun Fun Fun", "Long Tall Texan", "Papa Oom Mow Mow", "The Wanderer", and "I Get Around".

A long-overdue look at one of the greatest 80s groove bands around – the mighty Central Line, one of the few British soul groups to really kick it up back in the day! Central Line had a sound that was very much in the spirit of the times – a sweeeet blend of bass riffing, keyboards, and nice electro touches – always done with a soulful approach to the vocals that nicely offsets the electronics! The set's got 16 tracks in all – original and Larry Levan remixes of "Walking Into Sunshine", plus the tracks "I Need Your Love", "Don't Tell Me", "Shake It Up", "That's No Way To Treat My Love", "Surprise Surprise", "Nature Boy", "You've Said Enough", "Goodbye", "Bad Floyd", "Time For Some Fun", and "Lost In Love".

This is the third full length from the group that brings you politically scathing, party bangin, conscious hip hop for your urban revolution fun time. There's a lot of live instrumentation funky sloppiness for your neck and body to get loose to.

Tracks include the smart "5 Million Ways To Kill A C.E.O.", "Ghetto Manifesto", "Get Up" featuring Dead Prez, "Lazy Muthaf*cka", "Ride The Fence", "Everythang", "Wear Clean Draws", "Pork And Beef", "Thought About It 2", "Tight", "Nowalaters", and "Heven Tonite".

Joe Cuba SextetBang! Bang! Push! Push! Push! ... LP
Tico, 1966. Very Good+ ... $38.99
A Latin classic from the word "bang"! This album was the one that busted Joe Cuba out of the Latin ghetto – into the sound of 60s soul, early funk, and beyond. The record's a stone winner – filled with boogaloo tracks delivered by Joe's firey young sextet, a killer ensemble that was setting the Latin world on its ear at the time. The title track – "Bang Bang" – is one of those tracks that you'll recognize from a million references, but which never sounds as good as it does on this impeccable version from Joe. The whole album follows in a similar suit – blending Latin, jazz, and soul with effortless ease – shifting between English and Spanish lyrics in a genre-busting style that really captures all the freshness of the era. The whole thing's great, and titles include "Asi Soy", "Alafia", "Triste", "Mujer Divina", "Oh Yeah", "Sock It To Me", and the "Bang Bang" follow-up, "Push, Push, Push". Great, hard, and a heck of a lot of fun! LP, Vinyl record album

Tracks include "Mama Inez", "Tea For Two", "Taboo", "Sway", "It Happened In Monterey", "Always In My Heart", and "Amapola". For the most part the songs are fun and jolly with just a few that are a bit more dramatic and sweeping. LP, Vinyl record album

New Danger DoomMouse And The Mask ... CD
Epitaph, 2005. Used ... $4.99
You guessed it. Danger Mouse and MF Doom! The Doom team up albums are bound to fall flat at some point, but it doesn't happen on this one. The album is also a collaboration with the writers and voice talent of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block of programming, so the dangerous duo makes room for appearances by Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Space Ghost, Brak, Zorak, Harvey Birdman, Sealab 2021 and the Mooninites – plus live action characters Ghostface, Talib Kweli and Cee-Lo. Basically, you can look at the project as a crass, college market research driven coup and an affront to classic hip hop – or you can look at it as sort of a less pretentious Gorillaz. We're rollin with the latter, and it's a helluva lot more fun, too! Whatever it is, we love the f**kin' thing! DM's and Doom's styles compliment each other as well as Doom's and Madlib's – and the participation of Adult Swim makes this one of the few hip hop albums in which you actually look forward to the skits! One question, though. Where is Schoolly D? Tracks include "Sofa King", "ATHF", Mince Meat", "Old School" feat Talib Kweli, "Bizzy Box" feat Cee-Lo, "Space Hos" and more. CD

One of the few albums cut by this oft-overlooked southern soul diva – and one that mixes Muscle Shoals production with some nice uptown touches! Produced by Jerry Williams, Jr., aka Swamp Dogg! While the title comes of a bit flamboyantly, in truth, this record is an honest, personal, and earthy southern soul should-be classic. It's not only a personal triumph for Doris Duke, it's also one of greatest Swamp Dogg-produced records!

EmbryoOpal (180 gram pressing with bonus CD – and bonus track) ... LP
United Artists/Mirumir (Russia), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
One of the great space rock records of the 70s – the sublime debut from Embryo – a group who were a lot more unique than most of their contemporaries! Embryo's almost more of a jazz fusion combo than a progressive rock one – and some of their later efforts have them working with key jazz figures on the European scene, in a mode that's definitely pretty far-reaching overall. This record's maybe a bit more down to earth, with slightly shorter songs and more focus on fuzzy guitars – yet the overall approach still points to the skies with a really well-fused sort of energy, and this strong sense of imagination that really packs a lot into a small amount of space. Titles include "Opal", "You Don't Know What's Happening", "Revolution", "Glockenspiel", "Got No Time", "Call", "End Of Soul", "People From Out Of Space". Includes the bonus track "You Better Have Some Fun". LP, Vinyl record album

Handshake/Boogie Times (France), 1982. Used ... $4.99
The Gang's Back, and they're ready for grooving – especially those sweet sort of grooves that are heavy on the keyboards! The album's an overlooked gem from the early 80s – as tight and focused as the best mainstream funk on Capitol or Elektra at the time – and done with instrumentation that's heavily electric, but still quite warm and soulful throughout – thanks to great production, excellent group vocals, and a sense of songwriting that's never to gimmicky or commercial. The best tracks on here bounce like work from the BB&Q Band or TS Monk – and this is definitely one of those "should have been huge" sets from the time! Titles include "I'll Take Some Of That", "Got My Eye On You", "Our Music", "Night Time's The Right Time", "Hot Fun", "You Got What It Takes", and "All I Wanna Do Is Spend Time With You". CD

Richard L GrahamGovernment Issue – Comics For The People 1940s to 2000s (paperback) ... Book
Abrams Comic Arts, 2009. New Copy Book ... $6.99 29.95
Cool comics from a very unlikely source – publications put together by the US government to spread ideas and inform the public – many of which were handled by top comics talents from the mainstream! The quality of this material is surprisingly wonderful – not schlocky propaganda, but thoughtfully-scripted, well-penned comics that have the same sort of appeal as work from the cleaner, more wholesome side of the Silver Age! Artists include Neal Adams, Charles Biro, Kurt Schaffenberger, Joe Kubert, Milt Caniff, and many others – including a fair bit of unknown illustrators too. The book is surprisingly fun, and a much-needed look at this lesser-known strand of 20th Century comics. 308 pages, full color, and softcover. Book

The record's not a bad blend of jazz and R&B – continuing a style explored on the few previous CBS albums – with a number of tracks written by Rod Temperton, and production by Narada Michael Walden, Herbie, and Jay Graydon. Wayne Anthony is the lead vocalist on a number of cuts – and titles include "Lite Me Up", "The Bomb", "Can't Hide Your Love", "The Fun Tracks", and "Motor Mouth". CD

Dan HartmanRelight My Fire (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Sky/Purpose, 1979. New Copy ... $14.99
A stunning disco classic from Dan Hartman – maybe an unlikely talent for the dancefloors, given his image on the cover – but an artist who definitely went onto shape the sound of the clubs at the end of the 70s! The album's got the Hartman groove really hitting hard, and right on the money – a tightly compressed approach to disco that really lays heavily on the hooks – in a style that's similar to where Peter Brown was going at the time, with a similar compressed sensibility that gets past any of the fluff that was drowning others in the disco generation! In fact, it could well be argued that the approach here really helps focus a dancefloor sound towards the modes of the 80s – while still allowing for the fluid soul of the disco years too – a style that's summed up perfectly in the album's extended classic "Vertigo/Relight My Fire", which features famous vocals by Loleatta Holloway! Other titles are all sweet too – and include "Free Ride", "I Love Makin Music", "Just For Fun", "Love Strong", and "Hands Down". CD features some nice bonus tracks too – "Boogie All Summer (single)", "Relight My Fire (single)", "Hands Down (12" version)", "Hands Down (Hands Up)", "Relight My Fire (historical 1979 rmx)", and "Vertigo/Relight My Fire (progressive instrumental rmx)".

The mode is a fun one – but not too silly – and the tracks have a fresh swing that's quite surprising! Titles include "Toccata", "Little Rock Getaway", "In A Little Spanish Town", "Frenzied Flight", "Cocky Coo Coo Clock", and "Tea For Two". LP, Vinyl record album

Late 50s jazzy recordings from Kenyon Hopkins – best known as a soundtrack composer, working some magic on the Rooms and Sound Of New York LPs – on a single CD! Rooms is one of those groovy late 50s pre-concept albums, with 10 pieces put together to portray moods via jazzy backing of trumpet, clarinet, tenor sax, bass, piano and percussion, conducted by Hopkins. Titles include "Alone", "Dreams", Escape", "Going", "Panic", "Daydream" and "The End". The Sound Of New York (A Music-Sound Portrait) is a whimsical kind of day-in-the-life, idealized and totally fun musical portrait of the Big Apple, with originals "The Sound Of New York", "East Side, West Side", "Coney Island Visit" and more with adaptations of New York themed material by Rodgers & Hart ("Manhattan"), Billy Strayhorn ("Take The 'A' Train)" and more, with groovy vocal sound bites. 22 tracks in all!

Willie arranged and produced, and there's lots of nice moogy and guitary bits – plus sweet backup chorus vocals and a few more soaring elements – making this one a cool mix of grittier grooves, stranger textures and a few softer touches. Titles include "Get Ready For The Get Down", "Don't You Let Nobody Tell You How To Do Your Thing", "I'm Gonna Stay", "Mark Of The Beast", "Woman You Touched Me" and "Life's No Fun Living In the Ghetto".

We love the piano work of Tizian Jost – a player with a really special way of ringing out his tone on the keys, often with this sort of joyful flow that comes across right away! A few notches either way, and Jost might be too sentimental or too smooth – but instead, he's got this really perfect balance of warmer emotions that comes through especially well on this album's all-original tracks. Each number has this fresh sort of sparkle that really fits the mood of Jost's piano – and the trio features well-matched work on bass from Thomas Stabenow and drums from Mario Gonzi.

Roland KirkPre-Rashaan (Kirk's Works/Jaki Byard Experience) ... CD
Prestige, 1961/1968. New Copy ... $5.99 11.98
Nice 2-in-1 set that reissues 2 hard to find albums by Roland Kirk! Kirk's Work is a strange and tasty album that Kirk made with organist Jack McDuff in the early 60s. The album's also been issued under the title Funk Underneath – but this is the original version. Kirk's tenor, manzello, stritch, and flute sound great next to Brother Jack's organ, and his sense of humor matches that of the great keyboardist. They swing hard, and have a lot of fun, especially on tracks like "Kirk's Work", "Three for Dizzy", and "Doin' the Sixty-Eight". The second album was cut under Jaki Byard's name – and is an amazing (and often forgotten) quartet session that brings together the enigmatic pianist and the mind-blowing multi-reed player. Kirk and Byard had played together previously, most notably on some of Kirk's Mercury recordings, and they fit together perfectly in this mad session of off-kilter jazz. The two of them are backed by Alan Dawson on drums and Richard Davis on bass, and the group's as tight as a drum. Titles include "Parisian Thoroughfare", "Evidence", "Memories Of You", and "Hazy Eve". CD

KnightsHot Rod High ... CD
Capitol (Japan), Mid 60s. Used ... $9.99
High school and hot rods – groovy Capitol work, courtesy of producer Gary Usher – and of course, it features an incredible roster of west coast studio geniuses behind the curtain! A fun mix of instrumentals and vocal tunes, with beach and surf harmonies, R&B-indebted rumblers and other thematic touches – honking sax, gritty percussion, nicely grooving organs and chugging guitars – what more could you ask for? The niceness of the vocal tunes is a surprise, but the instrumentals are unsurprisingly great! Titles include "Hot Rod High", "Midnight Auto", "School Days", "Be True To Your School", "Hot Rod, USA", "I Get Around", "Rock Around The Clock", "Skippin' School", "Theme For Teen Love" and more. CD

Kool & The GangAs One (with bonus tracks) ... CD
De-Lite/Big Break (UK), 1982. New Copy ... $14.99
Solid 80s grooving from Kool & The Gang – a group who inspired so many others in the early 80s soul generation, but who could still do it better than most of the rest! The style here is tight and smooth, but never too slick – and Deodato's giving the group some really great production for the album – helping them to focus their energy and soar soulfully, but without resorting to any stiff gimmicks or cliches! There's a great groove running through most of the numbers here – a confident quality that's never too commercial, and which bubbles along nicely throughout. Titles include "Street Kids", "Big Fun", "As One", "Hi De Hi Hi De Ho", "Let's Go Dancin", and "Pretty Baby". CD features lots of bonus tracks – including "Big Fun (single)", "Let's Go Dancin (single)", "Street Kids (single)", "Hi De Hi Hi De Ho (single)", "Let's Go Dancin (12" promo rmx)", and "Street Kids (12" dance rmx)".

Sven LibaekNature Walkabout (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Festival/Votary (Australia), 1966. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 25.98
An incredible record from the great Sven Libaek – a soundtrack for a land-based TV adventure that's every bit as great as his underwater music from the 70s! The style is very jazzy, and heavy on vibes and woodwinds – sounds that really showcase the best sound of the growing Australian jazz scene at the time, and its particularly strong influence from the LA scene, both cool jazz and 60s soundtracks – as well as some key European elements as well! Rhythms are wonderful – lively and loping, but also very gentle too – maybe an influence from bossa nova, but also very individual too. A gem through and through – and tracks include "Bush Theme", "Nature Walkabout", "Lonely Australian Landscape", "Fun Music", "Danger Elements", and "Excitement". LP, Vinyl record album

Lord Sutch & Heavy FriendsLord Sutch & Heavy Friends ... CD
Cotillion/Esoteric (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $15.99
The lasting legacy of Screaming Lord Sutch – and an album that's almost equally well-known for its work by a host of famous guests – including Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, John Bonham, and others! Page is perhaps the most involved here – as he produced the set with Sutch, co-wrote some tracks, and plays some mighty searing guitar – as does Beck, which makes the album almost worth it alone for all the wonderful solos! But Sutch himself is pretty great too – kind of a mish-mash of late 60s nasty camp references, with the same sinister vibe as Kim Fowley – and an equally freewheeling approach to a tune that makes the album a heck of a lot of fun. Titles include "Gutty Guitar", "Flashing Lights", "Wailing Sounds", "Thumping Beat", "Union Jack Car", and "London". CD

It's fun stuff, with some some funky horns and jazz flute – plus some disco influenced guitar grooves. It's also got some straighter suspense soundtrack sounds, and some odd electronic touches here and there. Includes 14 sequences, with some varied sounds and changed up styles, but it always comes back to the funky cop/crime caper groove. Cool stuff! CD

New NERD (Neptunes)Fly Or Die ... CD
Virgin, 2004. Used ... $3.99
NERD is the first hip hop bar band – and if they accomplish nothing more than that, we love them dearly for it! Two albums into their career (or three, if you count the alternate versions of the debut), we still don't know what NERD's really trying to accomplish – but it's starting to look like they don't either, and maybe that's why their records are such great fun. You'd think that a couple of cats who've made their name as the most in-demand electro studio wizards in the world would have something serious to say with their actual band (live drums, organ, bass and guitar are out front on most tracks) – and they do indeed have a few tracks with some almost alarmingly serious subject matter. But there are also stretches in which Pharell seems to be making the lyrics up as he goes along, and makes with the sexual braggadocio and the spaceship-sized asses he wants to take a ride on. The Neptunes don't have to be the Neptunes all the time – NERD's all about catchy-as-hell, funky synth rock. If they weren't millionaires you'd want to hire them for your backyard throwdown. Take that or leave it. We'll take it! "Don't Worry About It", "Fly Or Die", "Backseat Love", the great single "She Wants To Move", "Jump", "Drill Sargeant", "Thrasher", "The Way She Dances" and more.

The album follows strongly in the catchy, crossover mode of Parker's work from the middle part of the decade – almost equally balanced between mainstream rock and soul styles of the time – with lots of popping rhythms and plenty of Ray's guitar underneath his vocals. Titles include "I'm A Dog", "Sex & The Single Man", "I'm In Love", "Girls Are More Fun", "Good Time Baby", and "Everybody Wants Someone". LP, Vinyl record album

Stepfather has some tracks that feel a little bit more bare bones than some of their busier beats of the past, and all the better to service the great rhymes. Another fine effort from one the most dependable acts of the past decade!

There's a song here called "Don't Jump To Conclusions", and that could be the unofficial motto after you see Evan's uber 80s coif and style on the cover – but this is a really fun record worth checking out! His voice is warm and genuinely soulful and the songs are insistent as can be. Includes "Hold On", a cool cover of Prince's "Private Joy" with some searing guitar as a counterweight to the electro soundscapes, "Full-Time Lover", "Sweet 16", "1-Track Mind", "Be Mine Tonight" and more.

Fascinatingly, Ronson starts the record with a crooning cover of "Love Me Tender", with his recognizable riffs kicking in a bit after his plaintive vocals – but it's that kind of anything goes wierdness that makes the album loads of fun, kind of closer to Queen style pomp than Bowie's astral trailblazing.

Clark TerryEverything's Mellow/Plays The Jazz Version Of All American ... CD
Prestige/Universal (Germany), 1961/1962. New Copy ... $13.99
A pair of overlooked gems from trumpeter Clark Terry – back to back on a single CD! On Everything's Mellow, things are mellow indeed – and that fact makes the record one of Terry's greatest from the 60s! The obscure session features Clark blowing in the laidback style of Prestige's Moodsville imprint – almost a swing-based, Verve-styled mode that makes for some really great tunes. Terry plays both trumpet and flugelhorn on the session – working through really restrained readings of tunes that include "The Simple Waltz", "Out In The Cold Again", "Among My Souvenirs", and "In The Alley" – and the rest of the players on the session include Junior Mance on piano, Joe Benjamin on bass, and Charlie Persip on drums. All American is a surprisingly nice little set from Clark Terry – featuring arrangements by Oliver Nelson, and a pretty nice little group that includes Budd Johnson on tenor and Eddie Costa on vibes and piano. The material appears to be lifted from the musical All American – by the team of Charles Strouse & Lee Adams – although the notes, and certainly not the title, don't do much to indicate this. The best part of the set is Nelson – who manages to, here as always, take any sort of material and give it a really strong swingin – bouncing it up with a lot of soul, and creating plenty of space for some strong breakout solos. Titles include "What A Country", "Same Language", "The Fight Song", "Nightlife", and "It's Fun To Think". CD

The tunes here really show the sharpest changes in Latin music at the time – the strong embrace of soul and jazz sounds from other stretches of the uptown scene – and the move to smaller, tighter groups after years of bigger bands – which makes for the kind of lively instrumental interplay you're more likely to hear from a funk combo! Some numbers here have swinging soulful vocals, others are really cooking on the instrumental tip – and titles include "The Aztec Theme" by The Aztecs, "Having Fun" by Pepe Fernandez, "Ain't That Right" by Arthur Sterling, "Mi Guajira" by Frankie Nieves, "El Gallo" by Al Gonzalez, "Damelo Baby" by The Aztecs, "C-Rations & Cornbread" by Pepe Fernandez, and "Do The Boogaloo" by New York All Stars & Orquesta Novel.

VariousEccentric Soul – The Forte Label ... LP
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 LP Gatefold ... $18.99 22.98
Killer soul from the Forte label of Kansas City – a tiny imprint, but a really great one too – and a company with an especially strong ear for the funkier side of the spectrum! This Numero set really gets back to the greatness that first made us fall in love with their collections in the first place – and brings together a really wonderful batch of rare singles that work perfectly as a whole album – no filler, no trans-genre stepping, and just a rock-solid batch of soul cuts that you'd have to dig deep in the American underground to find this strongly! The package is wonderful – plenty of notes, photos, and the usual Numero sense of history – but even without all that, the music is more than enough – a smoking pile of singles that includes "Whtever You Do" by Gene Williams, "I'm Gonna Get Your Thing" by Lee Harris, "Baby Your Love Is Amazing" by The Four Darlings, "I'll Never Be Satisfied" by Tony Ashley & The Delicates, "Baby Be Good" by The Rayons, "With Fun In My Life" by James Whitney, "Reaching For Our Star" by Sharon Revoal, "Daddy Don't Know About Sugar Bear" by Marva Whitney, and "Cry Night & Day" by The Fantasticks.

VariousKu-Pow! – British Guitar Instrumental Music Of The Sixties ... CD
El (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $8.99
Explosive Joe Meek instrumentals from the 60s UK scene – with scorchers by The Tornados, The Packabeats, The Moontrekkers, The Fentones, The Ted Taylor Four, The Outlaws, Tony Hatch, The Phantoms and many more! If you're unfamiliar, Meek was a virtuoso producer with a sound and style that was anything but meek – anchored by raw rhythms, searing guitars and electronic embellishments that were far ahead of their time – all fueling these mad instrumentals with touches of R&B, rockabilly, surf and soundtracky styles ranging from sci fi to westerns! Wild, fun stuff that's almost completely instrumental. Titles includes "Theme From 'The Traitors'" and "Evening In Paris" by The Packabeats, "Telstar" and "Earthy" by The Tornados, "Ku-Pow!" and "Sioux Serenade" by The Outlaws, ""There's Something At The Bottom Of The Well" and "Hatashiai" by The Moontrekkers, "The Mexican" by The Fentones, "Cloak And Dagger" by The Echoes, "Taboo" by Sounds Inc", "Checkpoint", "Border Patrol" and ore by Dennis Newey, "Out Of This World" by Tony Hatch and more. 33 tracks in all!

VariousMasterpiece Volume 14 – The Ultimate Disco Funk Collection ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. Used ... $9.99
Basslines, keyboards, and plenty of beats – all stepping out strongly in a sweet selection of clubby numbers from the early 80s! The set's not really disco, but is definitely funk – of the lean, clean style that groups were serving up in the post-disco years – kind of a refinement of the earlier ensemble sound of the 70s, taken to a tighter rhythmic focus for the next decade! Titles include "Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover" by Cookie, "Turn Me Down" by Nick Straker, "Love Is What I'm After" by Richard Jon Smith, "Please Come Back" by Dean Edwards, "Time For Some Fun" by Central Line, "Cash Play (rmx)" by Yvette Cason, "This Time" by Funk Deluxe, "I Can't Forget You" by California Executives, and "How Do You Feel Tonight" by Bobby M with Jean Carn.

VariousMuro King Of Diggin – Diggin' Salsoul Breaks ... CD
Salsoul/Octave (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $28.99
Great grooves from Salsoul Records – but served up in a way that's quite different than usual, with a very strong emphasis on the more break-heavy side of the spectrum! The tracks here still come from the same club and disco sources you'll know from Salsoul – but in the hands of DJ Muro, the get a special focus towards the old school – honed in to the most funky, most snapping elements of the cuts – in ways that really unlock a whole new understanding of the label! Muro never messes with the tracks too much – but he does bring them together in ways that re-emphasize his skill as a master selector – in a mix of 22 tracks that includes "Slap Slap Lickey Lap" by Instant Funk, "Sadie" by Joe Bataan, "Psyched Up" by Dr Perri Johnson, "The Incredible Hump" by Sound On Sound Productions, "I Like It Like That" by Inner Life, "High" by Skyy", "Win Tonight" by Edwin Birdsong, "Sugar Frosted Lover" by Flakes, "Kongas Fun" by Kongas, "Sun God" by Tierra, "El Caravanero" by Chocolat, and "Girl From Ipanema/Brazilian Nights" by Gary Criss.

Big Beat (UK), Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
Groovy, moddish, magnificent and sunny girl pop from The Land Of The Rising Sun – pummeling drums, jumping arrangements and groovy vocals from the mid-to-late 60s Japanese scene! This is fantastic stuff, any kitch or novelty appeal you might be expecting is kind of muted by the exceptional quality and excellent performances – but it is flat out fun! As the title states, strains of pop, beat & bossa – plus mod & psychedelic fuzz – and the vocals girl group vocals are bright, rocking, playful or sultry or innocent depending on the groove! 25 tracks in all: "Black Room by Jun Mayuzumi, Sharock No 1" by Mie Nakao, "Nagisa No Tenshi" by Mieko Hirota, "Hatsu Koi No Letter" by Miki Obata, "Bazazz Tengoku" by The Cupids, "Aeba Suki Suki" by Margaret With Bunnys, "Nukui Aitsu" by Mika Nohira, "Kiiro No Sekai" by J Girls and more.

VariousPop Goes The Easel – The Start Of The Swinging Sixties ... CD
El (UK), Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99
A mad mix of soundtrack styles – pulled together in support of a mighty cool package that showcases the best of the British art films of the early 60s! By this point, UK cinema was really coming into its own – and finding a fresh voice that was neither influenced by American productions, nor slavishly tied to other European cinematic styles – but was instead a new mode that packed all the power and punch of London in the swinging 60s. The music here is sometimes rock, sometimes jazz, sometimes other styles that were bubbling under in the UK – and tracks are performed by a diverse group that includes the John Barry Seven, Craig Douglas, Chris Barber, Barba Windsor, Jet Harris, The Spotnicks, The Wayfarers, Jimmy Crawford, John Dankworth, and many others – and the package features music from the films Whistle Down The Wind, It's Trad Dad, Just For Fun, Victim, The Painted Smile, Pop Goes The Easel, Idle On Parade, The Amorous Prawn, Play It Cool, and All Night Long.

VariousRare Psych, Moogs, & Brass – Sonoton 1969 to 1981 ... CD
Sonoton/Hidden Treasures (Germany), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99
One of the coolest sound library sets we've ever heard – and a collection that really lives up to its title! There's plenty of fuzz in the mix here – on both the guitars and keyboards – but the tunes are never trippy, as they're almost always funky – very forward-moving, with tight orchestrations that echo some of the best crime and action film styles of the time! And there's definitely some sweet moogy moments, too – but never spare or spacey, and instead just mixed with funky drums and and heavy bass – to give those sweet keyboards a very groovy focus. Titles include "Newcomer" by Walt Rockman, "Action One" by Sammy Burdson, "Vision Receiver" by Walter Rauxel, "Moog & Brass" by Sammy Burdson, "Life In The Fast Lane" by John Fiddy & Sammy Burdson, "70s Fun Pop" by Otto Sieben, "Big Brother Is Watching You" by Helmuth Brandenburg, "High Tension" by Sven Perner, and "Towerstreet 17" by Gerhard Narholz.

VariousTwistin Rumble Volume 10 – The Swinginest Dance Party Ever ... LP
Twistin Rumble, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $18.99
Plenty of twang, plenty of raunch, and plenty of weird and wild singles from the underground scene of the late 50s and early 60s! The cuts here are all from really tiny labels, and show why digging through mountains of 45s can always be a hell of a lot of fun – as you're always able to come up with really offbeat little gems like this – the kind of strange tracks that really fit the image on the cover! Music is a mix of R&B, early soul, and raw guitar rockers – and titles include "Sawmill" by The Admirals, "Slick Chick" by Vernon Harrel, "Two Tacos" by Felix Garcia, "Don't" by LB Wilson, "Let's Get One" by The Imperialites, "Lolo Baby" by The Medallions, "Hully Gully All Night Long" by The Peridots, "The Pig" by Ludaway, and "The Duck" by Earl Forest.

VariousVelvet Tinmine – 20 Junk Shop Glam Ravers ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $12.99
A walloping collection of singles from the hard-charging bubble gum glam era – tunes that go far beyond the more art school inclined sensibility of the Bowie/Eno/Roxy Music set – and more indicative of the giddy fun of the Bay City Rollers and Slade, mixed with the heavy crunch of T Rex! Adrenaline-fueled, pre-punk power chord mania that's one fun track after another! 20 tracks in all: "Rebels Rule" by Iron Virgin, "Another School Day" by Hello, "Let's Get The Party Going" by Warwick, "Kick Your Boots Off" by Sisters, "Big Wheel Turning" by Flame, "Rock Star" by Bearded Lady, "(Baby) I Gotta Go" by Simon Turner, "Va Va Voom" by Grett Smiley, "Neo City" by the Plod, "Bay City Rollers We Love You" yb Tartan Horde, "Kick Out The Jams" by Tubthumper and more!

New Eric KlossLove & All That Jazz ... LP
Prestige, 1966. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
Great early Eric Kloss record, with a tight organ jazz feel, courtesy of Groove Holmes and Don Patterson. Kloss was totally tight at this point, and less given to the sort of sloppy experimentation that weakened him later. He's backed by two great tight organ jazz groups, and the feel is nice and loungey, but with a good modern edge. Tracks include "Gemini", "Just for Fun-k", and a great version of "Love for Sale". Nice cover too. LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has a couple of light stains along the opening.)

New Les Baxter/Mike Curb/The 13th PowerWild In The Streets ... LP
Tower, Late 60s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hilarious! This is the soundtrack to a goofy late 60s shocker film about the time when hippies and young folks would take over America. Les Baxter handled the musical score for the film, but the real treat is the schlocky rock tracks – written by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, with arrangements by Mike Curb in that fuzzy Tower/AIP mode! The lyrics are hysterical, but also oddly catchy, even though they're trying to make fun of 60s rock. Titles include "Psychedelic Senate", "Fourteen Or Fight", "Wild In The Streets", "Sally LeRoy", and "Free Lovin". LP, Vinyl record album

New Elmer BernsteinStaccato ... LP
Capitol, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great lost crime jazz soundtrack – penned by Elmer Bernstein in the style of some of his best work from the 50s! There's a real Man With The Golden Arm feel here – as the orchestra rises and falls in a mode matching the Staccato title – and solos break out with a fluid and brazen sort of feel – plenty of jazz to show the west coast origin of the recording! Players include Don Fagerquist and Pete Candoli on trumpets, Dick Nash on trombone, Ted Nash and Dave Pell on saxes, John Williams on piano, and Barney Kessell on guitar. The show itself is pretty darn cool – and starred a young John Cassavetes as detective Johnny Staccato – a role that supposedly gave Cassavetes enough money to shoot the film Shadows in his free time! Great all the way through – with tracks that include "Staccato's Theme", "Thinking Of Baby", "Poi & Juice", "Deadly Game", "Night Mood", "Jazz At Waldo's", "Like Having Fun", and "MacDougal Street Special".

New Edwin BirdsongWhat It Is ... LP
Polydor, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wild weird stuff from Edwin Birdsong – an artist who's best known for his work with Roy Ayers during the 70s. This effort's got a very similar righteous soul sound to some of Roy's early work for Polygram – with a mix of jazz, soul, funk, and lots of cosmic wisdom – although Edwin also lets his politics get in the groove a bit more strongly, in a manner that's similar to Eugene McDaniels. Includes the spacey club classic "Pretty Brown Skin" – a wonderfully off-beat groover that sounds like it could be a Roy Ayers tune. Other tracks include the bizarre "It Ain't No Fun Being A Welfare Recipient", plus "The Spirit Of Do", "The Uncle Tom Game", and "Mongoose". LP, Vinyl record album

New Jaki ByardOn The Spot! ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the great ones! No kidding, Jaki Byard was an amazing talent in the 60s – and records like this one are rare treasures to be sought-after by any serious jazz fan. Byard had an incredible range of talents and influences – and, like his frequent bandmate Roland Kirk, he could often run through all of them in a very short stretch, packing each song with a wealth of feeling, technique, and sheer raw fun. This album's a darn tough one to find on vinyl – and it's reissued here with a previously unissued track. The group includes Byard on piano and alto, plus Jimmy Owens, Paul Chambers, and Billy Higgins. Tracks include "Spanish Tinge", "Olean Visit", "Geb Piano Roll", "Snow Flakes", and "On The Spot". Also includes the previously unissued "Snow Flakes". CD

New Miles DavisWater Babies ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A much different album than you might expect from the cover – hardly the funky 70s set implied by the Big Fun-styled cover – and instead a lost slice of work from his groundbreaking late 60s years! The set was recorded in 1967, but unissued until Miles late 70s time away from the studio – hence the cover, which attempts to contemporanize the record – and the music is very much in the dark moods and sharp tones of Filles De Kilimanjaro, and features a somewhat similar group! The core quintet of Wayne Shorter on tenor, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums handles the first half of the set – but the group's then expanded to include Chick Corea on electric piano along with Herbie on keys – and Ron Carter steps out so that Dave Holland can bring some more modern tones to the bass. Tracks are all somewhat long, and titles include "Capricorn", "Water Babies", "Sweet Pea", and "Two Faced". LP, Vinyl record album

New Paul Desmond with Jim HallEasy Living ... LP
RCA, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Paul Desmond doesn't get any better than this – blowing his icy cool alto next to warm guitar lines from the mighty Jim Hall – a classic RCA Records pairing in jazz, heard to great effect on this classic album! There's a slight bossa groove to some of the rhythms, which is great for Desmond's sound – and the backing is also free of piano, so the guitar and alto hang together wonderfully by themselves – suspended in space, dipping and turning around each other beautifully! The pair get some very light rhythmic accompaniment from Connie Kay on drums, and either Percy Heath or Gene Wright on bass – on titles that include "That Old Feeling", "Easy Living", "Blues For Fun", "Polka Dots & Moonbeams", and "When Joanna Loved Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing with deep groove.)

New George Duning/Gianfranco ReverberiZodiac Blues/Orgiastic Ritual ... 7-inch
Finders Keepers (UK), Late 50s/Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A cool and unlikely pairing of 2 groovy tracks from 2 different movies that portray black magic in very different ways! First up is George Duning and the Brothers Candoli, with "Zodiac Blues" from Bell Book & Candle – the late 50s Kim Novak/James Stewart classic – in which enchantress Kim puts her seductive charms on Jimmy! The song has a fun little nightclub jazzy vibe, kicking off with a cat's meow to set the tone. The flipside is "Orgiastic Ritual" by Gianfranco Reverberi, an eerily percussive tune from the 70s erotic horror film The Reincarnation Of Isabel –- which uses some sultry moaning to good effect! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Donald EdwardsEvolution Of An Influenced Mind ... CD
Criss Cross (Netherlands), 2014. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The title's a bit obtuse, but it also really gets at the vibe of the record, too – a great progression of individualistic jazz – inspired by previous generations, but voiced in a really fresh way by this combo led by drummer Donald Edwards! The approach is more open and varied than usual for a session on the Criss Cross label – from the initial spiritual passage of "American Drum Call To Mama", to David Gilmore's guitar atmospherics on "Niecee", to the richness of the album's original compositions. Gilmore's sense of color and phrasing really balance wonderfully with the tenor of Walter Smith – and Orrin Evans' piano is at its most melodically complex as well. The record opens up in so many ways, but still also finds plenty of room to swing, too – on titles that include "The Dream", "Dock's House", "The Essential Passion", "Nightmare Of Fun", and "Culmination For Now".

A charming batch of mid 60s popular tunes done in loungey, sort of boozy arrangements in some places and uptempo mod in others from Noel Harrison – who went on to have a few hits as well as a successful acting career – tackling Dylan, Lennon/McCartney, and more with a really swinging aplomb! Moddish touches abound, with some rocking soul & pop backing in the rolling drums, trippy organ washes, horn punctuation and girl backing vocals! Really cheeky stuff and good fun! "It's All Over Now Baby Blue", "God Bless The Child", "She's A Woman", "Mr Tamborine Man", "A Young Girl (Of Sixteen)", "All Blues", "Like Stranger", "Tomorrow Is My Turn" and more.
