Johnny HodgesPerdido ... LP
Norgran, Early 50s. Very Good ... $16.99
A stone cooker from Johnny Hodges – just the right kind of small group session to perfectly showcase his amazing sound on the alto sax! The group's a slightly unusual one – and features Arthur Clark on tenor, Harold Baker on trumpet, Lawrence Brown on trombone, Leroy Lovett on piano, and Louis Bellson on drums – all working with Hodges in a set of longer, more open tracks than some other Verve sides – with a really strong emphasis on solo space, in a way that makes Hodges tone sound even more delightful! Titles include "Blues For Basie", "Rose Room", "Perdido", "Mood Indigo", and "Squatty Roo" – plus a version of "This Love Of Mine", done with a vocal by Al Hibbler! LP, Vinyl record album
(MGM pressing. Cover has an X imprint on one corner.)

Naked EyesFuel For Fire (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1984. New Copy ... $9.99
Sweet electro pop from Naked Eyes – a record issued late in their early 80s run, but one that actually brings together lots of bits from earlier years! There's some alternate versions and remixes on the set – and the whole thing is actually more beat and bassline-heavy than most of their other full length sets – showing a good ability to cross over to the clubs when they want to! Titles include "What In The Name Of Love", "Eyes Of A Child", "Sacrifice", "No Flowers Please", "Answering Service", "Me I See In You", "Flying Solo", and "Flag Of Convenience". CD features 7 bonus tracks – including "Two Heads Together", "Sacrifice (Arthur Baker 12" mix)", "What In The Name Of Love (ext)", and demo versions of "Sacrifice", "Babes In Armour", and "Fuel For The Fire".

New New EditionCandy Girl ... LP
Streetwise, 1983. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A poppy record, but a great one too – and a surprisingly enduring pleasure from the Streetwise scene of the 80s! This is the album that started it all – the wave of younger groups that would come into play in 80s soul strongly by the latter half of the decade – New Edition with its now-classic lineup that includes a young Ralph Tresvant, Bobby Brown, and the Bell, Biv, Devoe trio! The album's really the brainchild of producer Maurice Starr, who's also working here with a fair bit of help from Michael Jonzun and a bit of guidance from Arthur Baker – all of whom serve up tunes that are sweet and catchy, and which are almost an 80s update of the sound of the Jackson 5 or Five Stairsteps from a decade before – given a hipper, more streetsoul undercurrent. Titles include "She Gives Me A Bang", "Pass The Beat", "Ooh Baby", "Popcorn Love", "Candy Girl", "Should Never Have Told Me", and "Gimme Your Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Criminal, 1987. Near Mint- ... $6.99

Rockers RevengeWalking On Sunshine '82 (long, short)/Rockin On Sunshine/Acapella Sunshine ... 12-inch
Streetwise, 1982. Very Good ... $0.49
Not strictly hip hop, but a breakin/electro/dance classic! With that early 80's club sound and sung vocals, produced by Arthur Baker and Jellybean. The 10-minute Rockin On Sunshine mix is a mostly instrumental version, with much more spare production, where each drum/bass/snyth line is allowed to go on for a minute without all the other orchestration. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Side 1 has a mark that clicks on track one. Label has some pencil.)

New TJMTJM ... LP
Casablanca, 1979. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A later bit of Philly disco – recorded at Sigma Sound studios with really soaring production from Tom Moulton – and some surprising help on a number of tracks from a young Arthur Baker! The style here has that Instant Funk sort of groove – a bit more bass at the bottom than earlier Philly disco, and a real penchant for instrumental breakdowns in the Salsoul mode – stepping out nicely on a set of longer tracks that really bubble over with energy! Titles include "Put Yourself In My Place", "Small Circle Of Friends", "I Don't Need No Music", and "Am I Dreaming". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo stamp.)

Island, 1983. Very Good+ (pic cover)... Just Sold Out!
Herbie Hancock's DJ, who'd go on to change the lives of millions of kids after his historic performance on Saturday Night Live. Though this one's a Laswell Material production, you can here a good bit of the sort of Arthur Baker breakers sort of track creeping in. 12-inch, Vinyl record

New FreeezIOU ... LP
Streetwise, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Nice one! The album's a classic batch of early 80s electro – featuring 8 NYC breakin' cuts produced by Arthur Baker, and featuring John Rocca on lead vocals. A bit poppy, sure – and we'll be the first to admit that we kind of wrinkled our nose at this one back in the day. But after time, it sure sounds nice – and reminds us that we need to drag our linoleum out of the basement! Includes their classic "Pop Goes My Love", plus "I.O.U.", "Freezin", "We've Got The Juice", and "Can't Keep My Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Streetwise, 1984. Used (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Loleatta's working here with Arthur Baker – changing her style considerably to fit his slick little electro beats on the blaster and master mixes! The single also features a mellower number in her older southern style – "Sweet Thing", which is a great late night cut. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Cover has some wear.)

An electro pop classic – and one of the greatest tunes by New Edition! The track's got some nice street beats from Arthur Baker, and catchy lead vocals that sound a lot like the Jackson 5 at their best! 12-inch, Vinyl record

New King CurtisArthur Murray's Music For Dancing – The Twist ... LP
RCA, 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
A stodgy cover, but a great groover – raw instrumental dance soul from sax great King Curtis – recorded for RCA in 1961 – really great, energetic covers of big band numbers and more in a hard grooving R&B mode! Don Covay and others sing on the "Twist" tunes – "Peppermint Twist", "The Arthur Murray Twist" and a couple more – but the instrumentals are pretty incredible, too. Mickey Baker and Billy Butler are on guitar, and the whole group of musicians really cook! Other tracks include "Jersey Bounce", "Honeysuckle Rose", "Stompin' At The Savoy", "The Fly" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful original mono pressing!)

New Man ParrishHip Hop, Be Bop (Don't Stop) (ext)/Heatstroke (club) ... 12-inch
Importe/12, 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
A classic electro groove – and one of the tracks that's a contender for the origin of the word "hip hop"! A very nice groove with an early Arthur Baker feel, and the kind of cut that we slept on during the 80s, but which sounds totally great today! 12-inch, Vinyl record
