Caetano VelosoForeign Sound ... CD
Nonesuch, 2004. Used ... $7.99
A landmark album for Caetano Veloso – a full set of tracks sung in English, as beautifully done as we ever could have hoped! The arrangements are really fresh – in a style that makes the album far more than just a set of standards – and instead gives it the edgey approach of some of Caetano's best recent work. The set was co-produced by Jacques Morelenbaum, and has a range of instrumental approaches that shifts to fit the mood of each new track – and given that the work on the set runs from tunes by Cole Porter to Nat King Cole, Nirvana, David Byrne, Arto Lindsay, Elvis Presley, Stevie Wonder, and Bob Dylan – you can imagine the changing moods at work! Titles include "So In Love", "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes", "Diana", "Manhattan", "Nothing But Flowers", "Cry Me A River", "Nature Boy", "Jamaica Farewell", "If It's Magic", "Detached", "Blue Skies", and "Something Good". Loads of tracks, too – 22 in all – and packaged beautifully! CD

Grover Washington JrAll My Tomorrows/Soulful Strut/Breath Of Heaven ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1994/1996/1997. New Copy 3CDs ... $12.99
A trio of 90s albums from Grover Washington! All My Tomorrows is an overlooked gem from reedman Grover – recorded in his later years, but a set that's actually got more of an acoustic style overall – one that goes back to the roots farther than any of Grover's fusion records! Washington's a great straight player in this setting – filled with soul on tenor and soprano sax – and working with top-shelf small group players like Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Hank Jones on piano, Bobby Watson on alto, and Robin Eubanks on trombone. Guitarist Romero Lumbambo arranged one great Brazilian-tinged number – and other arrangements are by Grover, Larry Willis, Slide Hampton, and Freddy Cole – who sings on two tracks too. Titles include "E Preciso Perdoar", "Happenstance", "All My Tomorrows", "Nature Boy", "Flamingo", and "Estate". Soulful Strut is bouncy soul from Grover Washington – a set that returns to his earlier roots in a space between soulful fusion and R&B! The slinky Washington soprano sax gets plenty of space in this set – blown with those seductive notes that always made Grover one of the most distinctive players on the instrument – and the backings often have this gentle R&B groove that's even stronger on the few cuts here with vocals. Titles include "Soulful Strut", "Bordertown", "Village Groove", "I Can Count The Times", "Headman's Hunt", and "Can You Stop The Rain". Breath Of Heaven is a holiday record from Grover Washington – but one that's got a fair bit more to offer than just the usual Christmas tunes! The set mixes older favorites and lesser-known numbers – all done in that soulful fusion style that Washington brought to his records from other seasons of the years – set up here with the leader on alto, tenor, and soprano sax – amidst arrangements from vibist Joe Lock, and keyboardist Donald Robinson, and guitarist Hiram Bullock – all of whom play on the record. Lisa Fischer sings on one number, but most of the record is instrumental – and titles include "Breath Of Heaven", "The Magi's Song/A Child Is Born", "I Wonder As I Wonder", "Christmas Time Is Here", "The Love In His Infant Eyes", and "Christmas Day Chant".

Grover Washington JrInner City Blues ... LP
Kudu, 1972. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Sweet funky jazz from Grover Washington – an early standout session from his classic years on Kudu Records, put together with hip arrangements from the mighty Bob James! The record's got the same spacious sense of grooving as James' first few for CTI – a style that's funky fusion, but a bit more laidback than most – not nearly as jamming, and with almost as much focus on lean rhythms as on key solos from the players in the group! Most tracks have a long, open sort of feel – and in addition to alto and tenor from Grover, other instrumentation includes organ from Richard Tee, guitar from Eric Gale, drums from Idris Muhammad, percussion from Airto, and electric piano from Bob James himself. Titles include versions of "Mercy Mercy Me", "Ain't No Sunshine/Theme From Man & Boy", "Until It's Time For You To Go", and "Inner City Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, Howlin Wolf, & OthersFolk Festival Of The Blues ... CD
Argo (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
Not the folk festival you might expect – especially given that the blues here are electric – and a set that was recorded at a small Chicago club, not some stuffy outdoor concert on the east coast! The album's an early powerhouse meeting of the best Chess blues talents at the time – a date that features Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, Howlin Wolf, Sonny Boy Williamson, and Willie Dixon in varying settings – mostly getting center spotlight as a solo act with the same backing combo, but also coming together as well at one point too. The whole thing's great – a gritty live record of electric Chicago blues in the 60s – with a strong sense of liveness that really recreates the small club feel! Titles include "Wee Wee Baby", "Sitting & Thinking", "Worried Blues", "Sugar Mama", "Bring It On Home", "Got My Mojo Working", "May I Have A Talk With You", and "19 Years Old". CD

George Wein's Newport All StarsGeorge Wein's Newport All Stars ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1969. Used ... $7.99
Although the name of George Wein is usually associated with some super un-hip trad jazz projects, this album's actually a pretty cool batch of grooves that matches Wein's older jazz tendencies with some newer styles of playing – and some good electric instrumentation on the best cuts. The album's got a super-nice version of "Sunny", plus "Blue Boy", "In A Little Spanish Town", "Topsy", and "Ja Da" – and believe it or not, Wein even plays some electric piano! Players include Red Norvo, Tal Farlow, Larry Ridley, and Barney Kessel. CD

Mary WellsNever, Never Leave Me – The 20th Century Sides ... CD
Ichiban/Soul Classics, Mid 60s. Used ... $21.99
A much-needed collection of Mary Well's lost recordings for the 20th Century label – featuring titles from her self-titled album for the company, plus other assorted singles, and even some unreleased material! The work on the set is perfectly-done uptown soul – a mixture of Motown and the New York sound of the time – sung beautifully by Mary in a voice that's a bit fragile, but solidly soulful all the way through. Titles include "Ain't It The Truth", "Stop Takin Me For Granted", "Jive Guy", "Everlovin Boy", "Never Never Leave Me", "I'm Learnin", "I'm Sorry", "Memories Are Creeping Up On Me", and "Say What You Gotta Say". 18 tracks in all – and oddly, the collection features none of the tracks from Mary's Love Songs To The Beatles album – but that's likely because of copyright issues!

Mary WellsOne Who Really Loves You/Two Lovers ... CD
Motown/Kent (UK), 1962/1963. New Copy ... $19.99
A pair of incredible early Motown albums from Mary Wells – one of the label's first truly great singers – in a great single set from Kent UK! Mary Wells never sounded better than in her Motown years – and 1962's The One Who Really Loves You is key proof of her talents, as it's overflowing with laidback and mellow soul tunes – done in Mary's great blend of bluesy and classy styles! Titles include classics like "Drifting Love", "Strange Love", "The Day Will Come", "I've Got A Notion", "The One Who Really Loves You", "You Beat Me To The Punch", "Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right", "I'll Still Be Around" and more. The follow-up Two Lovers features the subtitle And Other Greatest Hits, but it's actually a great batch of songs that were most newly-recorded by Mary at the time – and not at all a simple round-up of singles! The approach here has just a little more rawness than some of the girl groups Berry Gordy was scoring hits with at the time, but also a sense of urban classiness. As is their wonderful way, Kent goes above and beyond here – with a great booklet of notes and photos – which shines a light on the making of these great records. Wonderful stuff! Titles include "Two Lovers", "Guess Who", "My 2 Arms - You = Tears", "Goody, Goody", "Stop Right Here", "Laughing Boy", "Looking Back", "(I Guess There's) No Love", "Was It Worth It" and "Operator".

Motown, 1966. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A very strong compilation of some of the best soul that Mary Wells recorded for Motown – and probably her only real album for the label. Although issued in 1966, the material hearkens from earlier days at Motown – and titles include "The One Who Really Loves You", "Two Lovers", "Honey Boy", "My Guy", and "You Beat Me To The Punch".

New Spanky WilsonWestbound Years (Specialty Of The House plus unreleased tracks) ... CD
Westbound (UK), 1974/1975. Used ... $9.99
A beautiful collection of work by funky soul diva Spanky Wilson – a set that features her full Westbound album Specialty Of The House, plus a nice array of even harder-hitting singles! Spanky first rose to fame as a gritty singer mixing jazz and soul on a series of late 60s/early 70s sides with HB Barnum, but during her Westbound years she cleaned things up a bit – taking her already-rich vocals, and turning them towards fuller backings and more soaring soul that almost hit the heights of soul singers like Marlena Shaw or Motown artists of the time. Backings penned by David Van DePitte, Paul Riser, and others gave Wilson a nicely mature sound that was a good change from her aging style of previous years – but other singles still maintained a grittier, funkier groove too – allowing for a nice range of modes during these short years at Westbound Records. This CD's the first to give full due to these overlooked years in Spanky's career – and it breaks up the core album and intersperses some of the funkier singles, plus unreleased tracks – in a blend that sounds even better than the original records! 18 tracks in all – including the break classic "Kissing My Love", plus "Shake Your Head", "Non Stop Flight", "He Called Me Baby", "Easy Lover", "Spend The Night With Me", "Missing Pieces", "I Think I'm Gonna Cry", "Standing Room Only", "Love Song", "The Downer I Get", and "I'll Stake My Life On You Boy".

WinstonsColor Him Father ... LP
Metromedia, Late 60s. Very Good ... $14.99
The one and only album ever cut by The Winstons – an obscure mixed-race soul combo who had roots in Otis Redding's touring band, and who hit big with a soul Grammy in 1969 for the title track to this one, "Color Him Father". The cut's an amazing document of its time, a sweet little story-song about a boy who's lost his dad in the war (Vietnam?), and who grows to love the new guy that his mom is dating. Sounds sappy, but it's one of the most compelling soul singles of the 60s – and is always a treat to hear. The other big cut on the record is the classic breakbeat track "Amen Brother", which is an instrumental reading of the gospel standard, done in a fast-funk style that's been sampled for years – both by hip hoppers and by drum n bass producers! (Noteworthy, too, is the fact that this 33rpm album offers a bonus on the cut that the 45rpm single does not – you can play the album at 45rpm to speed up the break in the track, getting a great jungle effect!) The rest of the record is pretty good – but mostly features the group trying to cover work by other artists, on songs like "The Chokin Kind", "The Greatest Love", "Everyday People", and "Only The Strong Survive".

WipersIs This Real? ... LP
Jackpot, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
The trailblazing debut of Greg Sage and The Wipers – really one of the best punk/post punk records of the end of the 70s/start of the 80s – and a near-perfect balance of blazing guitar and surprisingly melodic, if still pretty raw vocal intensity. It's mostly full-speed ahead, but there's a few slower, more brooding moments that you can tell had a huge influence on some of the more famous Pacific Northwest rock figures to come in both the underground and mainstream scenes! It gets going with the forever great "Return Of The Rat" and doesn't really let up from there. Other titles includes "Mystery", "Up Front", "Let's Go Away", "Is This Real?", "Tragedy", "Alien Boy", "Don't Know What I Am", "Wait A Minute" and "Potential Suicide". LP, Vinyl record album

Bernard WrightNard/Funky Beat ... CD
Arista/GRP/Robinsongs (UK), 1981/1983. New Copy ... $13.99
Early 80s greatness from Bernard Wright – the benchmark Nard from '81 and his Funky Beat from '83 – in a single set! Nard is a masterpiece of smooth jazzy funk – and super-hip session headed up by the young keyboardist! Wright's working here with an insider crowd of jazz funk players that includes Bobby Broom, Dave Grusin, Marcus Miller, and Don Blackman, whose funky style is very similar to Wright's. The record sort of picks up the groove where some of the Fantasy Records sessions of the 70s left off – mixing together jazz and soul into a captivating blend that's made even better by Dave Grusin's tight production. Includes Don Blackman's sample classic "Haboglabotribin", a nice version of Weldon Irvine's "Music Is The Key", and the cuts"Just Chillin' Out", "Master Rocker", and "Bread Sandwiches". Funky Beat is his second album – an 80s groove electro classic that's quite different than his first LP! It takes Bernard firmly into a b-boy jazz mode – working keyboards, bass, and drum programs into a groove that's farther reaching and more soulful than anything that Herbie Hancock was doing at the time. And as with his first album, Bernard's got plenty of great help on this one – as the record features work by Weldon Irvine, Lenny White, Dave Grusin, and others. The album includes some great Weldon Irvine compositions – like a remake of "Mr Clean", and the sweet vocal numbers "Won't You Let Me Love You" and "Keep On Doing That Right Thing", both of them warm wonderful tunes that stand with the best work on the album! Also includes a straight jazz version of "Joy Spring", and the breakin' tracks "Funky Beat", "Get Your Lover Back", "Video Generation", and "Move Your Body". CD

That said, it's still the work of an outsider, and got a cool, oddball groove to show for it. Includes "An Easy Goin' Country Girl", "My Sally", "Black Birds In The Sky", "The Nice Boy", "Pigeon Falls", "Mrs. Jennings Fruit Fly Farm", "I'm So Glad You Came", "One Room And A Brass Bed", "Come A Long" and more.

Some of Lester Young's first great moments of prominence – his late 30s recordings with the Count Basie Band, offered here in a well-done collection issued as a memorial after his death in 1959! The sets are all led by Basie, but most feature strong saxophone lead by Young – solos that helped define the tenor sax sound of a generation, nestled in alongside other top-shelf players who include Buddy Tate on tenor, Freddie Green on guitar, and Harry Edison and Buck Clayton on trumpets. The set features a hefty 24 tracks in all – and titles include "Broadway", "Blow Top", "Dickie's Dream", "Clap Hands Here Comes Charlie", "Pound Cake", "Rock A Bye Basie", "Riff Interlude", "Easy Does It", "Jump For Me", "Hollywood Jump", "Tickle Toe", "12th Street Rag", "I Left My Baby", and "Shoe Shine Boy".

The fantastic follow-up to one of our best-selling titles! Like it's precursor, this second volume to Bombay The Hard Way takes 70s Bollywood brownsploitation film funk tracks and dialogue, and remixes them to pump up the beats, pull out the grooves, and create a more coherent sound overall. There's a more complicated sound to this volume that pushes the Indian-inspired grooves even further – and which actually creates some more discreet tunes that would work well on a heavy dancefloor, or as a soundtrack for your own exotic adventures! Remixers include Kid Koala, Steinski, Pak Man, Eynomite D, and Mix Master Mike – and titles include "Bionic Kakaa", "Theme From Twin Sheiks", "Bollywood B-Boy Battle, "Sexy Mother Fakir", "Inspector Jay's Big Score", "Electric Vindaloo", "Oil Street Blues", "Chakra Khan", and "TJ Hookah".

VariousChicago Deep ... CD
Ronn/P-Vine (Japan), Mid 70s/1985. New Copy ... $22.99
Chicago's plenty deep – something we've known for years, being Windy City lifers ourselves – but this set really gets at the special sound of the city's blues scene – especially some of the overlooked hybrids that were coming out of the underground in the 70s and 80s! At that time, Chicago was swelling with a fresh influx of folks from the south – new listeners in the blues scene who were also raised on southern soul and older R&B – and who brought up a different mode than some of the electric styles of the 50s and 60s that are more commonly associated with Chicago. The work here is a great illustration of that change – produced by the Jewel/Ronn label with a mode that would work equally well for southern soul, and often served up in a mode that's far from some of the cliches that were chomping down on the more college-bound blues scene of the period. The CD features the whole Blues Boy album by Artie White – with cuts that include "Funny How Time Slips Away", "Warm Room", "Leaning Tree", "I Need Someone", and "Turned Out" – plus other singles that include "Dip My Dipper" and "Be Good To Me" by Cicero Blake, "Good Thing (parts 1 & 2)" by Casey Jones, "Just Another Man" and "I'm Tired Of These Changes" by Isaac Taylor, "Checking Out" and "Baby Baby" by Lee Shot Williams, and "Sitting On The Banks Of The River" and "Can't Let You Go" by Billy Perry.

Seminal sounds from the New Orleans scene of the 60s – all great soul tracks recorded in the studios of Cosimo Matassa – as important a force in the Crescent City sound as Allen Toussaint at the time! The grooves here are plenty deep – building off New Orleans modes from the R&B generation, but bursting out with a whole new sort of soul – really righteous vocals that go far beyond the overdone cliches you might know from overplayed New Orleans hits – even though there's a few familiar numbers nestled in here, next to the more obscure material. As usual with Ace, the production is superb – great notes on Cosimo, done in conjunction with the folks who've carried on his legacy – and a rich range of titles that include "Trick Bag" by Earl King, "New Orleans Twist" by Blazer Boy, "This Is The City" by Berna Dean, "I'm Gonna Get You Yet" by The Tick Tocks, "You Told Me" by Willie West, "Teasin You" by Willie Tee, "I Got To Know" by Eddie Bo, "We Got A Party (part 2)" by The Party Boys, "The Joke" by Reggie Hall, "Second Fiddle Girl" by Barbara Lynn, "Play A Cornbread Song For Me & My Baby" by Joe Haywood, and "Did She Mention My Name" by Ronnie Barron.

A beautiful batch of prime quality, but quite obscure girl group singles – 45s cut for the majors and larger indies in the mid 60s – but didn't break out in a big way, despite being just as lovely and catchy as the big hits of the day! This is the second volume in what we hope will be a long series, and it's got a few names that'll be recognizable to diggers of rare rock, pop and soul – but the material has for the most part been buried for way too long. Beautiful stuff! It's a packed collection, too. 26 tracks in all: "Usher Boy" by Merry Clayton, "Run Johnny Run" by Ramona King, "Outside City Limits", "He's Hurtin' Me" by Beverly Williams, "Changed Disposition" by The Party Favors, "Big Man" by Barbara Jackson, "After Last Night" by The Rev-Lon, "You're My Baby" by The Carolines, "You're Not The Guy For Me" by Ernestine Anderson, "Don't Say Goodbye" by Jean King, "Don't Pity Me" by Joanie Sommers, CD

Jewel/Fuel 2000, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99 17.98
Way more than just the gospel you might expect from the title – given that the music here comes from the Jewel Records label, a real powerhouse for southern soul and blues! The style here is plenty secular overall – with lots of the best deep soul overtones we've come to expect from Jewel in the late 60s and early 70s – including that relaxed sort of production approach that makes the label's music way different than that of any of their southern contemporaries on the scene. The tunes are definitely spiritual, but carried off in a way that's very appealing to any fan of southern soul at the time – and the double-length set features a massive 36 gospel gems from Jewel that include "You Better Get Right" by Willie Morganfield, "I'm Traveling On" by The Soul Stirrers, "Solid Rock" by The Violinaires, "Little Boy" by Ted Taylor, "He Changed" by Albertina Walker & The Caravans, "All The Way" by The Violinaires, "Confusing Times" by Clarence Fountain, "A Change Is Gonna Come" by The Meditation Singers, and "There's A Creator" by Roscoe Robinson.

A nice collection of the blusier groovers on Jewel and Paula – from the mid 60s and on through the 70s – with underappreciated gems from stars like Bobby Rush, Fontella Bass, Lightnin' Hopkins and Lowell Fulsom, plus equally strong singles by The Carter Brothers, Peppermint Harris, Brenda George, Wild Child Butler, Jimmy Preacher Ellis, Teddy Taylor and many more! Label founder Stan Lewis's roots are in Shreveport, LA, but the genesis of his Jewel label – and the later Paula and Ronn imprints – are inspired by Chicago's Chess Records empire. So there's more of an amplified Chicago sound on a good deal of the material – with touches of contemporary soul and R&B. Nice! 36 tracks on 2CDs: "Southern Country Boy" by The Carter Brothers, "You Love Me Pretty Baby" by Banny Price, "Homogenized Love" by Jerry McCain, "Move On" by Curtis Griffin, "My Back Scrather" by Frank Frost, "Count The Days I'm Gone" by Ray Agee, "Back Door Friend" by Lightnin Hopkins, "Put It All In There" by Wild Child Butler", "True Love" by Al Prince, "Sleeper" by Lowell Fulsom, "Go On And Help Yourself' by Albert Washington, "Food Stamp Blues Pt. 1" by Eddie Lang, "Stoop Down Baby" by Cash McCall, "Home Wrecker" by Fontella Bass and more.

Pulp Flavor/Dare Dare (France), 2002. New Copy ... $12.99
A sweet little selection of grooves from the folks at Pulp Flavor Records! The label's best known to our customers for their great reissues of French groove obscurities from the 60s and 70s – but this selection features work by a number of newer artists involved with the label, interspersed by a few other older tunes pulled from sound library records. The overall feel is perfect – slightly Latin, slightly easy, slightly soundtracky – with a timeless quality that really blows away most American attempts at this sort of title. Tracks include "Dynamoog" by Jean Jacques Perry, "Vibra D'Electrique" by Apine, "Bagheera" by Nino Nardini & Roger Roger, "Freejazz Box" by Undress Code, "To The Bass" by Zimpala, "It's A Boy" by Ama D Us, "Epoch Making Sense" by Kan Takagi, and "Deja Mort" by Concorde Music Club.

BBE (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99
Wild sounds from the early years of rock and roll – a heady brew of guitar-heavy instrumentals, soulful stompers, and more – all pulled from the hinterland of the rare 45 underground! The tunes here go way past familiar oldies – and even past the sorts of sounds that usually show up on surf compilations – because, as he does with funk records, Keb Darge has a great ear for the unusual – the sorts of odd platters that have always show up in his best record digging and DJ gigs – laid out perfectly here in a really overstuffed collection! Keb turns in nice notes on each track – and titles include "Honey Bun" by Larry Donn, "Ghost Train" by The Swanks, "I Don't Wanna Leave" by Deacon & The Rock & Rollers, "Gorilla" by The Shandells, "She's The One That Got It" by Allen Page, "Madness" by Rhythm Rockers, "Woodpecker Rock" by The Braves, "Let's Dance" by The Excels, "Bad Bad Boy" by Bobby Lollar, and "Lobo Jones" by Jackie Gotroe.

Groovy music from the films of Sophia Loren – from mambo jazz, to lush balladry, to swinging numbers and more – with music from Woman Of The River, Houseboat, Boy On A Dolphin, The Legend Of The Lost, Pride And The Passion, and The Key – plus several of Sophia's lovely pop singles of the time! The composer on the set include George Duning (Houseboat), Malcolm Arnold (The Key), Elmer Bernstein (Desire Under the Elms) and others, and it's lush, evocative film music that's among the finest of the 50s, and the numbers sung by Ms Loren are pretty wonderful, too. Titles include the singles "I Wanna Guy", "Why Tomorrow" and "Felecita", plus "Mambo Bacan" from Woman Of The River, ""Bing! Bang! Bong!" and more from Houseboat, "The Café", "Nocturnal Sea" and more from Boy On A Dolphin", "Chop Suey Polka" and more from The Key, and lots more. CD

VariousNight Walker – The Jack Nitzsche Story Volume 3 ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $14.99
Jack Nitzsche was one of the greatest producers of the LA scene of the 60s – a legendary talent whose work was a key counterpart to frequent associate Phil Spector, but which also took on lots of other weird twists and turns of its own! Jack has this mad appeal that you can probably guess from his image on the cover – a quiet genius who really finds a way to make artists shine at their best – whether he's working the knobs in the studio, or just scoring an arrangement or penning a tune! This volume is easily the most wild of Ace Records' series on Nitzsche – and features lots of offbeat tunes that almost feel more like Kim Fowley tracks than some of the more mainstream numbers that came from Jack's hands. The range of music here is really wonderful – lots of lost LA gems from the 60s, plus a few key tracks from later years too – in a lineup that includes "Puddin N Tain" by The Alley Cats, "What About You" by Ramona King, "Educated Fool" by Billy Storm, "Daddy You Just Gotta Let Him In" by The Satisfactions, "Louie Louie" by Honey Ltd, "Little Boy" by The Crystals, "Night Walker" by Jack Nitzsche, "If My Car Could Only Talk" by Lou Christie, and "Night Time Girl" by Modern Folk Quintet.

The classic box set featuring so many of the biggest, best, and brightest pop, rock & soul singles of the late 50s and on through the 60s – those ubiquitous, but no less incredible productions from that crazy genius Phil Spector! Back To Mono features many of the best known numbers by the Ronettes, the Righteous Brothers, Darlene Love, the Checkmates, the Crystals and many more – all of it with the appropriately dubbed Wall Of Sound that made Phil Spector the most famous producer of all time! We'd love to see an addendum someday featuring a set of Spector's productions for those idiosyncratic superstars of the 70s (the Ramones, Leonard Cohen, the post-Beatles) – but as a snapshot of an era, this box can hardly be beaten! 60 tracks on the the main 3CDs in the set – plus a 4th CD featuring the classic Christmas Gift For You From Phil Spector album from 1963! Titles include "To Know Him Is To Love Him" by the Teddy Bears, "Spanish Harlem" by Ben E King, "I Love How You Love Me" by Paris Sisters, "He's A Rebel" by the Crystals, "(Today I Met) The Boy I'm Going To Marry" by Darlene Love, "Be My Baby" by the Ronettes, "Hold Me Tight" by the Treasures, "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" by the Righteous Brothers, "River Deep Mountain High" by Ike & Tina, "Love Is All I Have To Give" by Checkmates and tons more – plus the immortal holiday disc featuring the Ronettes, Bob B Soxx & The Blue Jeans, Crystals, Darlene Love and more!

Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
The wealth of music from the Louisiana scene knows no bounds – as you'll hear in this tremendous batch of R&B work from the end of the 50s – a set that not only features a batch rare singles, but also a whopping 19 previously-unissued tracks! The work lies in a special space between early soul, rock, and blues – and has a quality that's quite different than R&B from bigger spots like Memphis or Texas – styles that maybe echo modes from both locales, but which also mix in some grittier, swampier sounds as well! The whole "By The Bayou" series from Ace is mighty darn great, but we're especially in love with this R&B volume – and know you'll dig great cuts like "Silly Filly Oh Baby" by Jay Nelson, "She's Got Eyes Like A Cat" by Wonder Boy Travis, "Walkin In The Park" by King Karl, "Lucille" by Classie Ballou, "Tomorrow" by Carol Fran, "I'm A Country Boy" by Ivory Jackson, "My Girl Across Town" by Lester Robertson & The Upsetters, "Teenage Queen" by Tabby Thomas, and "You're So Good Looking" by Otis Smith.

One of the coolest, hippest collections you could ever hope to find – not just the usual mix of vintage soul or obvious jazz tracks, but a wealth of wonderful work we never would have discovered otherwise! Mr Thing digs even deeper for this third volume than the previous two – working with a range of rare 70s records that span a great range of underground genres – mixing funky soul with sound library instrumentals, obscure themes, jazzy bits, and more – really getting back to the best spirit of BBE compilations like this from a decade or so ago.

The mix of talents here is quite usual, and comes across unusually well – sometimes with a bit of flash, but in ways that are really to be appreciated, given that the producers could have gone for the same overdone cliches if they wanted. Titles include "Ain't No Sunshine" by Bobby Blue Bland and Yo Gotti, "Wish I Had Answered" by Mavis Staples with North Mississippi All Stars, "Push & Pull" by Bobby Rush with Frayser Boy, "They Wanna Be Like Me" by The Bar-Kays with 8Ball and MJG, "Trying To Live My Life Without You" by Otis Clay with P-Nut, "Supposed To Be" by Booker T with Al Kapone, "I Forgot To Be Your Lover" by William Bell with Stax Music Academy and Snoop Dogg, and "Walk Away" by Terrence Howard with Hi Rhythm Section.

Warner (Japan), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99
One of the grooviest collections of Burt Bacharach songs we've ever heard – a sweet double-length set that dips deep into the Warner Brothers catalog of the 60s, then moves into later decades for a few choice moments too! Tracks here represent a great range of Warner pop from the time – a bit of jazz, mod instrumentals, soul, girl pop, and more – including some excellent cuts from overseas that fit perfectly in with the American tracks that dominate the set. CD2 moves into some later territory that includes some 70s and 80s takes on Burt's music – showing the ever-growing power of Bacharach, even after his initial burst of songwriting and production. Titles include "Made In Paris" by Trini Lopez, "The Look Of Love" by Anita Kerr Singers, "Cross Town Bus" by Gals & Pals, "And This Is Mine" by Connie Stevens, "You're Following Me" by Caterina Valente, "Promise Her Anything" by Marty Paich, "I'll Never Fall In Love Again" by Ella Fitzgerald, "Baby It's You" by Jeff Phillips, "Me Japanese Boy" by Harpers Bizarre, "Non Mi Innamoro Piu" by Johnny Dorelli & Catherine Spaak, "I Wake Up Crying" by Watts 103rd Street Rhythm BAnd, "I Say A Little Prayer" by Siw Malmkvist, "In My Reality" by Natalie Cole, "Alfie" by Everything But The Girl, "Are You There With Another Girl" by Mari Wilson, "Tell It To Your Heart" by Randy Crawford, and "Anyone Who Had A Heart" by Linda Ronstadt.

Can opens up a bit with Unlimited Edition – expanding upon their earlier Limited Edition compilation – fleshing out that set of archival Can errata into a sprawling, boundless 70+ minute set of brilliant, yet largely unused genius from the group's earlier archives! Can is legendary for constructing their greatest studio material out of freewheeling studio experimentation, so it stands to reason that there was a whole heck of a lot of worthy material left out. Boy, was there ever! It's got bits from both the Mooney and Suzuki periods, as well as spacious Can instrumental material. It's made up largely of brief bits that didn't find their way into a whole piece, but there's some longer numbers, too – and one epic: the 17+ minute "Cutaway". Titles icnlde "Gomorrha", "Doko E", "The Anpress And The Ukraine Song", "TV Spot", "Mother Upduff", "Connection", "Fall Of Another Year", "Transcendental Express", "Ibis", "Blue Bag (Inside Paper)", "Musette", "EFS No. 10", "I'm Too Leise" and more.

The album really marked a departure for Willie – moving past the bad boy style of earlier records, that kind of "tough guy in the hood" look – into a mode that was more open to other Latin scenes, and which marked an even greater rise to Latin stardom.

An odd little session for Miles Davis – playing here with a great group, but one that's made up of musicians who are all uncommon sidemen for him, even at this early point in his career! Britt Woodman (a nom-du-date?) is on trombone, and Charles Mingus and Elvin Jones are in the rhythm section – plus Teddy Charles' vibes where you might expect a piano. As you might guess from the title and instrumentation, the set has more to do with Miles' more contemplative explorations of the time – his "blue moods" – than his more upbeat boppish styles, but that's where Charles' vibes come in and really make the set a great one. The group runs through a nice set of laidback, cool renditions of the tunes "Nature Boy", "Alone Together", "There's No You" and "Easy Living" – all done in nice longer takes! LP, Vinyl record album

In a world of soundalike groups in the 60s, The Eighth Day really stand out – working in a batch of all-original material here, one that uses folk, Sunshine, and harmony styles in the presentation – but somehow manages to focus the best elements of all modes together into a really sparkling little sound! Most numbers have a catchy sing-songy quality that should have made them bigger hits – yet there's also an under-discovered quality here that's probably one the things that makes the record so great!

The classic example of this is the stellar cut "Blind Alley" – a famous sample from years back, and a wonderful funk tune on its own. Other tracks include "Boss Love Maker", "Love Ain't Easy Onesided", "Show Me How", "Love is The Hardest Thing To Find", and "Boy I Need You". CD

An oft-overlooked gem from the JBs – their last album for People Records, and a stone funk classic that's every bit as essential as the others! The band is still in fine fine form – with none of the fast-funk or proto-disco of some later recordings – and they're working here in some really tight song formats that almost go back to the early days of the group's first few singles. The album's filled with great playing, wonderful grooves, and Fred Wesley's keen sense of humor – which sparks the whole set with a sense of warmth and creative play that show why the JBs are still the greatest funk band ever. Includes the excellent "Little Boy Black", which begins with some tasty James Brown vocals; the oft-sampled "Rockin' Funky Watergate"; plus "Step Child", "Makin Love", and "Rice & Ribs". Not as drawn out as Doing It To Death, but more complicated than Food For Thought, and still a totally essential bit of funk! CD

One of the most compelling albums so far from funky maestro Shawn Lee – all instrumental versions of 00s tunes by stars like Gwen Stefani, Amy Winehouse, Britney Spears, Blur, Badly Drawn Boy, Justin Timberlake, and Outkast! As you might guess from Shawn's previous records, the approach here is quite different than the originals – lean, mean, and totally funky – with sweet keyboards and horns in place of most of the vocals, although a few cuts seem to have a bit of chorus bits too. The vibe is mostly in a 70s mode – and takes these current numbers way back in time, to the era that arguably influenced the new songs. Titles include "Rehab", "Trick Me", "Rock Your Body", "Hey Ya", "Out Of Time", "Once Around The Block", "Clint Eastwood", "Get UR Freak On", "Toxic", "By The Way", and "Can't Get You Out Of My Mind".

Side two changes up the vibe a bit, with vocals and a slightly slicker approach, with a kind of Bootsy-esque funk vibe creeping in just a bit. 9 tracks in all, including the sublime "Solar Flight (Opus I)" and "Third World Calling (Opus II)", plus "Keep Tryin", "Masked Music Man" and "Masked Marauder".

The set's a brilliant batch of baroque and trippy tunes – presented as a "science fiction pantomime", but coming off more like a series of fab pop tunes that kind of crossup Brit Invasion and California Sunshine Pop sensibilities. The great Syd Dale (of KPM fame) handled the arrangements, so the album's got a nice extra-groovy punch – and titles include "We Can Help You", "Satellite Jockey", "Lonely Boy", "Wings Of Love", "In The Courtyard Of Stars", "You Are Just The One", and "Pentecost Hotel".

A pivotal album in the development of the Japanese piano trio sound of the 70s – one that links together an older mode of expression with some of the newer freedoms on the scene! Yuji Ohno grabs us here from the very first note with a bold voice on the keys – one that's got some echoes of 60s American players, but which soon takes off in a more spacious, more fluid style that's every bit the best legacy that Japanese players grew from the influence of Bill Evans. The trio here is often nicely rhythmic – with pulsating bass from Yoshio Ikeda and drums that snap then stop when needed from Kazuyoshi Okayama. Titles include the beautiful original numbers "My Little Angel" and "Mr Happy-Gon" – both tunes that should have become standards – plus versions of "A Boy On A Dolphin", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Alone Togther", and "My Foolish Heart".

Duke Pearson recorded this set in 1969 – during the middle of his last productive period of activity, at a time when he was doing some tremendous genre-crossing jazz that really broke from his earlier styles. The set's got Duke on acoustic piano and celeste – backed by a rhythm section that includes Bob Cranshaw on bass and Mickey Roker on drums, plus Airto on percussion! The sound's more open, more free than you'd expect for a Christmas album – extremely soulful overall, in a mode that makes for some great readings of "Sleigh Ride", "Wassail Song", "Go Tell It On The Mountain", "Jingle Bells", and "Little Drummer Boy".

Dickerson's got an amazing tone on the vibes, and he's working here with pianist Austin Crowe, who creates beautiful spiralling piano lines that ring out in glorious tones next to Dickerson's darker metallic ones. The album's comprised of almost all original material, and has a fresh sound that's very different from any other jazz vibes albums from the time (except for Dickerson's other LPs). Titles include "Ode To Boy", "The Good Earth", "Sense Of Direction", and "Why". Very nice! CD

DonovanWear Your Love Like Heaven (mono pressing) ... LP
Epic/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
One of Donovan's greatest albums – and in the original mono mix, too! Wear Your Love Like Heaven is a perfect blend of pop psychedelia – complicated little songs that sum more in a short space than some of Donovan's contemporaries could do in a single album side. Nearly every cut on here is a tiny little 3 minute gem – with a sunny and accessible psych folk vibe – but that doesn't overshadow the deeper, more complex and adventurous arrangements underneath. Classic! Tunes include "There Was A Time", "Sun", "The Land Of Doesn't Have To Be", "Wear Your Love Like Heaven", "Little Boy In Corduroy", and "Mad John's Escape". LP, Vinyl record album

Nick DrakeBryter Layter (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Island, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
The second album from the legendary Nick Drake – one of those records we could never ever live without – and a true piece of genius that's been turning on generations of listeners since Nick first recorded it back at the start of the 70s! The format is folksy, but the execution is something else entirely – filled with jazzy phrasing, hypnotic lyrics, and arrangements that really go far beyond any cliches or contemporary work you might expect. The great Joe Boyd produced – and really helps give a strong focus to Nick's vocals and guitar – and the cool mix of added instrumentation – which includes organ and celeste from John Cale, flute and alto from Ray Warleigh, piano from Chris McGregor, and guitar from Richard Thompson. Drake's work is impossible to describe adequately, but if you've ever heard him, you probably stopped dead in your tracks the minute you first caught his voice. We still do the same – and it's a pleasure to have this one in stock! Titles include "Fly", "At The Chime Of A City Clock", "Hazy Jane", "Poor Boy", and "One Of These Things First". LP, Vinyl record album

New ExcitersExciters ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Although we don't normally dig some of the sweeter 60s girl groups, we love The Exciters! Lead singer Brenda Reid has one of the most amazing voices in soul music – filled with rough sexy tones that always grab our attention, even when the lyrics shouldn't – and this album's one of the group's rare few full-length recordings. The album was the group's first after leaving United Artists – where they had scored bit with their oldies hit "Tell Him" – and although that cut's not on this album, the record's probably an even more compelling batch of soul tunes than anything the group had previously recorded. Reid's lead vocals are sublimely backed by harmonies by two other ladies, and the nicely-placed baritone of Herb Rooney – and the styles run from uptown soul to mellower ballads. Tracks include "That's How Love Starts", "Something To Shout About", "I Knew You Would", "Run, Mascara", "My Father", "I Want You To Be My Boy", and "Are You Satisfied". CD

Kind of lovable, easygoing 70s rock from Nils Lofgren's Grin – amiable guitar and piano grooves – with a bit of bite in the guitars, but with an laidback sensibility overall! The tunes have an unpretentious, catchy vibe to them, which in other hands in the 70s would have come off as more of a soft rock record, but this Lofgren, he can play the guitar, see! Really nice stuff, and joy to have available all these years later. Includes "You're The Weight", "Boy & Girl", "What About Me", "One More Time", "True Thrill", "Believe", "Ain't For Free" and more.

Donny HathawayThese Songs For You, Live! ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, Early 70s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A fantastic document of the genius of Donny Hathaway – and a set that shows that the 70s soul legend was every bit as wonderful live as he was in the studio! The set features a huge number of unreleased tracks by Donny – grouped with numbers pulled from his two successful 70s live sets (Donny Hathaway Live and In Performance, neither of which are in print in the US!) The tracks feature Donny on electric keyboards and organ – leading a group of players that includes Phil Upchurch, Cornell Dupree, and Richard Tee – all coming together in a tightly-jamming small group formation that's quite different than the backing on Hathaway's studio albums. There's a warm, organic feel to the set that's really wonderful – and which offers new versions of tunes you might only know from their studio incarnations, as well as a few covers of work by contemporary soul acts that come off amazingly well. Includes previously unreleased live recordings of "Flying Easy", "Valdez In The Country", "Superwoman", "Yesterday", "Someday We'll All Be Free", and "He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother" – as well as a short interview – plus the tracks "Little Ghetto Boy", "A Song For You", "Sack Full Of Dreams", "The Ghetto", and "I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know".

The legendary John Lee Hooker, heard here in one of his more obscure recordings from the late 50s – at least in contrast to his famous sides for Vee Jay Records! This set's an unusual date – recorded in Detroit, despite the claim of the title – and featuring Hooker on acoustic guitar and vocals, without any other instrumentation at all – pitched much more towards the growing folk blues scene than some of his more familiar Chicago recordings. Tracks are short, but pack plenty of punch – and titles include "Black Snake", "I Rowed A Little Boat", "Bundle Up & Go", "Behind The Plow", "Water Boy", "Tupelo Blues", and "Pea Vine Special". CD

There's an instantly nostalgic quality to the record, but one that's nicely undercut by Newman's familiar sense of wit – a bit more subtle here, and presented with amazing backings from Van Dyke Parks – who almost brings in a lightly symphonic touch at times. The work's almost in the vein of hipper jazz sides by Bob Dorough or Dave Frishberg at the time – and although some of the tunes are familiar from later versions, they still sound best here in Randy's originals. Titles include "Love Story", "So Long Dad", "I Think He's Hiding", "Laughing Boy", "Cowboy", "The Beehive State", "Davy The Fat Boy", and "Bet No One Ever Hurt This Bad". LP, Vinyl record album

New Junior ParkerYou Don't Have To Be Black To Love The Blues ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A fitting title to this one – as it virtually describes the standard that the blues business was operating on during the early 70s – as artists came out of the shadows and found big audiences on college campuses, rock clubs, and other crossover scenes! The concept is carried to the Nth degree on the cover – which has a front image of a young Asian boy eating a big watermelon, Sambo-style – and the back cover features notes that say things like "Chinese kids like watermelon, Irish like bagels, black people like Jewish rye, and today everybody loves the Blues." Fortunately, this comic packaging doesn't affect the album too much – as Junior's still in the fine form he was at the end of the 60s, cruising between blues and soul, with a slight touch of jazz, in a unique way that sounds better to our ears than the work of most of his contemporaries. Titles include "Five Long Years", "That's Alright", "Way Back Home", "Man Or Mouse", and "I Like Your Style". LP, Vinyl record album

Billy PaulGoing East (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
One of Billy Paul's greatest albums ever – or perhaps the greatest! The record is an amazing blend of soul, jazz, and a soaring sense of spiritualism that's not only rare for Billy Paul – but which makes the record sound different than any other Philly International LP from the time! Billy's way more than a soul singer here – and working in a mode that's very high-concept, reaching towards the sky to bring a new maturity to the music that pushes way past his other pop and soul recordings in the 70s – almost with a consciousness of the spiritual jazz underground, but a bit more focused as well. You can hear this best on the classic track "East", a swirling long groover that takes an extended funky soul jazz journey – and other good cuts include "Jesus Boy (You Only Look Like A Man)", "Love Buddies", "I Wish It Were Yesterday", "Magic Carpet Ride", "This Is Your Life", and a nice cover of "Compared To What".

Roaring Lion has 16 tracks, 11 of which are from one mastertape full of top shelf dubs, and the other 5 are heretofore unreleased alternate mixes and dub plates of prime period material. Fantastic stuff in the quintessential Black Ark style – right up there with the Lee Perry & The The Upsetters more famous material of the era – heavy, bouncing bass, hazy atmosphere, tricked out bits of melodica and other atmospheric washes of sound – plus some soul-steeped vocals in the mix, too.

2 Tone/Chrysalis, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
The second great set from The Specials – music once billed as "revival ska" – but which has arguably gone onto have a bigger impact than the first wave of the genre! There's a rough edged quality to the music that's totally great – a rude boy aesthetic filtered through the post-punk generation – perfect for the spare, earthy Two Tone production – and just right for a post-colonial London, looking for new ways to express itself! The studio work is as great as the core grooves from the band – lots of odd echoes and cool effects – kind of a Brit take on Kingston dub, served up beautifully to abstract the tunes. So many others ruined this approach in later years with weaker work – but here's a chance to hear it perfectly in an original conception! Titles include "International Jet Set", "Enjoy Yourself", "Stereotypes", "Holiday Fortnight", and "I Can't Stand It". Very cool package also fetaures a bonus 7" single – with "Braggin & Tryin Not To Die" by Roddy Radiation & The Specials b/w "Rude Boys Outta Jail (version)" by Neville Staples.

The style here is still quite rootsy overall – and the double-length session features one album recorded in the studio, and a second done live at the Super Cosmic Joy-Scout Jamboree – key evidence of the growing hippie audience for blues like this! The core group features Waters on vocals with Otis Spann on piano, Mike Bloomfield on guitar, Paul Butterfield on harmonica, Donald Duck Dunn on bass, and Sam Lay on drums – and guest players include Phil Upchurch on bass and Buddy Miles on drums – each on one number. Titles include "All Aboard", "Mean Disposition", "Forty Days & Forty Nights", "Sugar Sweet", "Twenty Four Hours", "I'm Ready", "Walkin Thru The Park", "Got My Mojo Working (parts 1 & 2)", "The Same Thing", "Baby Please Don't Go", and "Honey Bee".Studio & live recordings.

A record we'd never part with – and easily our favorite album ever from The Who! Quadrophenia represents the group at its peak from all perspectives – songwriting, performance, and even studio presence – as the album's got a sonic sensibility that few other albums of the time can match! The set's a concept record – a story, like Tommy – yet it remains incredibly lean, without any overcluttered rock opera feel – so much so that most tunes stand mightily on their own, but also have a dense sense of texture when taken together as part of the double-length album. And we'll also say that the record's one of the few extended sets we always end up breezing through from start to finish – almost surprised by the time it comes to a close – and often hitting repeat to hear the whole thing over again! Titles include "I Am The Sea", "The Real Me", "Cut My Hair", "The Punk & The Godfather", "Sea & Sand", "5:15", "Bell Boy", "Love Rein O'Er Me", and "Is It In My Head". LP, Vinyl record album

Decca, 1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
An amazing moment from The Who – and from the UK rock scene in general – as Tommy is one of the most fully-conceived concept albums ever recorded – a masterful effort that's still pretty hard to match all these many years later! Pete Townshend really knocked it out of the park with this one – and pushed the group way way past the simpler songs the were recording just a year before – into this deeply introspective territory, spun out both in the album's words and music. The Tommy tale's been well told many times over the years – so we won't bother with the full narrative – but just let us say that it's hard to go wrong with this one, an essential item in any collection of adventurous rock – classic or otherwise. Titles include "The Acid Queen", "It's A Boy", "Sally Simpson", "Miracle Cure", "Pinball Wizard", "Do You Think It's Alright", "Cousin Kevin", "Christmas", "Tommy's Holiday Camp", "I'm Free", and "We're Not Gonna Take It".

In keeping with the success of the Mercy Mercy Mercy album done with Axelrod, Capitol did everything they could to catch Cannonball in a live setting – a great move, given the open, soulful energy his group had in the format – crowd-pleasing, but always plenty darn creative too! Added to the mix here is some nice production by David Axelrod, capturing all the right moments in all the right ways – especially when Joe Zawinul steps up to take some sweet solos on the keys – and the great Charles Lloyd serves up some mighty nice work on flute and tenor sax. Other players include Nat Adderley on cornet, Sam Jones on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums – and titles include "The Song My Lady Sings", "Little Boy With The Sad Eyes", "Work Song", and "Sweet Georgia Bright".

Soulful southern rock at its absolute finest – and the Allman Brothers at their peak! The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings box set puts together performances from a legendary series of concerts the band played that year – originally serving as the source material for the classic At Fillmore East live album, but as geniunely great as that album is, it only hints at the expansive improvisational genius that happened live on stage. This set does a terrific job of putting that on display – and it's brilliant stuff! The 4LP version is jam-packed with both consise tunes and freewheeling jams – all recorded by Tom Dowd – on March 12 and March 13 (2 sets each night), plus a closing show on June 27. It's also heavy duty and top quality – with hours of essential recordings from those 5 sets – on 4 X 200 gram LPs packaged in a heavy outer box!

All their best southern roots are firmly tied together here – not just the country-touched approach to rock that was the group's calling card, but also their ties to some of the Georgia soul scene as well – an element that really surfaces in some of the album's piano lines and rhythms, which really help underscore the depth of the tunes – and give the group a solid footing that's stronger than some of their more cliched contemporaries. These tunes hold up wonderfully over the years – and have a visionary approach that almost sparkles even more strongly here in the 21st Century than when we first started digging their sounds on radio back in the 70s.

The work is surprisingly strong like some of the best uptown soul we've heard on New York indies in the Wand/Scepter mode – and the set comes complete with a great booklet that's loaded with notes on the music, great photos, and even a full discography of Patti's work!

Other players include Bud Shank, Art Pepper, Richie Kamuca, and Jim Hall (on rhythm guitar) – and titles include "A Country Boy", "My Old Flame", "Goose Grease", "You Know", "Remember", and "Patricia".

2 early classics by The Emotions – back to back on one CD! So I Can Love You is much rootsier than their later hit recordings at Columbia, with a raw soul groove that reaches back to the girls' roots as an indie soul act. This one's got arrangements by Isaac Hayes that work perfectly for the record – tight, deep, and soulful, with a real no-nonsense approach that opens up the vocals and sets up plenty of tasty hooks. Features the organ-heavy "So I Can Love You", the slightly-funky "Got To Be The Man", and the tracks "Going On Strike", "I Found My Man", and "The Best Part Of A Love Affair". But the best track is "I Like It" – which has this amazing intro that begins with a tight drumbreak, rolling over some descending basslines, then vamping into some horn flourishes before the vocals come in! On Untouched, the group are getting some extra heavy production from Ronnie Williams and David Porter – who bring a darker side to their sound, coming up with heavy soul grooves that really open them up. The classic example of this is the stellar cut "Blind Alley" – a famous sample from years back, and a wonderful funk tune on its own. Other tracks include "Boss Love Maker", "Love Ain't Easy Onesided", "Show Me How", "Love is The Hardest Thing To Find", and "Boy I Need You". CD

New Bob EnevoldsenSmorgasbord – The Music Of Bob Enevoldsen (Reflections In Jazz/Smorgasbord) ... CD
Liberty/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1955. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Under-discovered genius from one of the freshest players on trombone in the 50s – LA modernist Bob Enevoldsen, heard here on 2 great dates from 1955! First up are 5 tracks from the Tampa album Reflections In Jazz – a hip set led by Bob Enevoldsen on both valve trombone and tenor – and featuring Marty Paich on piano and accordion, Larry Bunker on vibes, and Red Mitchell on bass. Enevoldsen's work on the valve trombone is really great here – as well-spaced and timed as that of Bob Brookmeyer in the period – but also given some interesting inflections, due to the use of vibes and accordion, which seem to bring out even more harmonics in the session. Titles include "Topsy", "Loaded With Bass", "Iron Works", "Blues & Rhythm", and "Don't Be That Way". The second half of the CD is from the Liberty album Smorgasbord – done with a similar lineup and some really incredible arrangements! Bunker's vibes are especially great, and often ring out with a colder tone that underscores the modernism of some of the tunes – but which is also offset by some warmer notes from Enevoldsen. The set features a number of great original tunes, and titles include "Mr Know It All", "Ding Dong, The Witch Is Dead", "John's Jumble", "You're In Love", "Bob's Boy", and "Swinger's Dream". CD

New FreeezIOU/I Dub U/Acapella U ... 12-inch
Streetwise, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of those b-boy cuts that straddles the line between soul and hip hop, but definitely an 80s breakin'/electro/dance classic! Anything from 1982 produced by Arthur Baker and mixed by Jellybean is bound to be dope and this one is no exception. With production and sung vocals similar to the Planet Patrol records from that time. Complete with an instrumental/dub version if you don't want the vocals. 12-inch, Vinyl record

New GandalfGandalf ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic lost psych album – with a moody spacey sound augmented by lots of organ, harpsichord, and electric piano! The best cuts are short and echoey – with kind of a trippy pop feel that sounds like post-Brit invasion lyricism, mixed with LA stoner freedom, and a good dash of Love-esque soul. Titles include Tim Hardin's great "You Upset the Grace of Living", "Hang Onto A Dream", and "Never Too Far" – plus a very cool version of "Nature Boy", and the tracks "Tiffany Rings", "I Watch The Moon", and "Me About You". LP, Vinyl record album

New Hall & OatesH2O ... LP
RCA, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One that we heard way too much when it was out, but which we kind of love now! The album's part of H&O's great comeback years in the early 80s – a time when they were mixing their white boy soul with some nice 80s groove and electro touches, often going for a spare mix of groove and vocals that's really compelling. Includes the sublime "Maneater", everything that was right with pop in the 80s – plus "One On One", "Open All Night", "Crime Pays", "Go Solo", "Delayed Reaction", "At Tension", and "Italian Girls". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch.)

New Donny HathawayDonny Hathaway Live ... LP
Atco, 1972. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Massively beautiful work from the great Donny Hathaway! After two studio albums that had firmly put him on the map as one of the 70s best soul talents, Atco had the genius to have Donny record this live album before very enthusiastic crowds in Hollywood and New York. The result is one of the best soul albums ever – one that shows a totally different side of Donny, and which has him jamming with a smaller, hipper, jazz-oriented group in long versions of some of his best tracks. Features a massive 12 minute version of "The Ghetto", which has loads of excellent instrumental breakdowns, a 13 minute version of "Voices Inside (Everything Is Everything)", a superior version of the track "Little Ghetto Boy", which was only ever on a soundtrack, and covers of "What's Going On" and "Jealous Guy" that really transform them from the original versions. Very similar to the classic Curtis Mayfield 2LP live set on Curtom – and with a similar "Chicago studio soulster goes jazzy and intimate" feel. LP, Vinyl record album

New HeptonesNight Food ... LP
Island, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Seminal mid 70s work from Leroy Sibbles, the lead singer of the Heptones, perhaps more well known the house bass player at Studio One, the man behind many now classic rhythms! This mid 70s set was cut at Harry J's, and is a bit more produced than some of their earlier sides, but no less great – with some great vocal harmonies and updates of awesome Studio One rhythms! Includes "Country Boy", "Book Of Rules", "Deceivers", "In The Groove", "Love Won't Come Easy", "Fatty Fatty" and "Mama Say". LP, Vinyl record album
(Side 2 has marks that click a bit on a few tracks. Cover has some wear, a bit of sticker residue, and a few small peeled marks along the bottom.)

New Goldie HillDon't Send Me No More Roses ... CD
Righteous (UK), 1950s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the best early heartbreaking country numbers you're likely to hear – the hugely underappreciated earlier records cut by singer Goldie Hill in the 50s – work the influenced some of the very best female honky tonk singers of 50s, 60s & 70s – but Goldie still doesn't get the credit she deserves for it! The tunes are full of heartbreak and sadness, par for the course for the much of the post Hank Williams singers of the scene, but it's done her with a sweet tenderness, and a perceptive truthfulness in her tone – it's impossible to imagine Loretta Lynn doing what she did in the 60s & 70s if Goldie didn't get there first! Titles include "Call Off The Wedding", "Don't Send No More Roses", "Waiting For A Letter", "I'm The Loneliest Gal In Town", "Fickle Heart", "Why Talk To My Heart", "I'm Yesterday's Girl", "Miss You So", "Please Don't Betray Me", "Young At Heart", "Say Big Boy", "Treat Me Kind" and "Why Don't You Let Me".

New Rebbie JacksonCentipede ... LP
Columbia, 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great set from Rebbie Jackson – a batch of 80s groovers that's way different than work from siblings Michael or Janet – and done with a percolating sort of vibe that's quite different from some of the core projects of the rest of the Jacksons universe! Wayne Henderson handled most of the production for the set, and brings in a nice sense of class that pushes the work far from too-commercial soul – that strong balance that always makes his name on a record one key reason to check it out! There's still a bit of Jackson influence on the vocals – as Rebbie gets help from Michael, Tito, and Randy Jackson – alongside additional guest vocals from Gary Glenn, Patryce Banks, Maxie Anderson, and The Weather Girls. Titles include "Centipede", "Play Me", "Open Up To My Love", "Hey Boy", "Come Alive It's Saturday Night", "Ready for Love", and "A Fork In The Road". LP, Vinyl record album

New King TubbyRoots Of Dub ... LP
Jamaican Recordings (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Roots Of Dub from The Dub Master – the one-and-only King Tubby – heard here in one of a trio of crucial records he cut in the mid 70s – all of which really helped define the sound of dub at the time! The production is wonderful – and the album rumbles with floor-shaking bass, thunderous reverb drops, and chattering echo – nicing up the heavy-duty rhythms laid down by the Aggrovators, with results that still blow away most of the competition. Hail to the King! Titles include "Natty Dub", "Dub Magnificent", "A First Class Dub", "the Stepping Dub", "Rude Boy Dub", "Dub You Can Feel", and "Dread Locks Dub". LP, Vinyl record album

Jamaican Recordings (UK), 1975. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The dub LP from King Tubby & The Aggrovators – 1975's Shalom Dub, mixed at King Tubby's and produced by Bunny Striker Lee. A bit of an overlooked set of dubs, generally not highly regarded or really even acknowledged on the same level as other Tubby dub sets of the era, but the hazy riddims and echoey atmosherics sound pretty sweet to us! Includes "Natty Dub", "Lee's Dub", "I'm Gone Dub", "Rasta Train Dub", "Feel Lost Dub", "Dawn Dub", "Mmove Out Of Babylon Dub", "Country Boy Dub", "True Believer Dub", "When Will I Find My Way Dub" and more.
