VariousIntroduction To Chicago Soul ... CD
Fuel 2000, 1960s. New Copy .... $6.99 12.98
Way more than just an introduction to Chicago soul – and instead, a surprisingly hip little set that features a fair bit of indie singles from the Windy City scene of the 60s! There's a few minor chart numbers here, but most of the tracks are much more underground – and include a number of gritty deep soul tracks, some other funky numbers, and some real killers from the Mar-V-Lus and One-Derful labels. Most numbers here have a much harder edge than some of better-known Chicago soul on labels like Okeh or Brunswick from the 60s – and the package features 16 tracks in all, with titles that include "Checkin Out" by Roscoe Robinson, "Help Wanted" by Jesse Anderson, "Do You Wanna Dance" by LC Cooke, "Cut You A Loose" by Ricky Allen, "Got To Find A Way" by Harold Burrage, "The Flame Remains" by The Steelers, "Check Me Out" by Bobby Jones & The Para-Mounts, "Wrong Wrong Wrong" by Ray & Dave, "What Is Love" by Jimmy Dobbins, "I Testify" by Otis Clay, "Bowlegged Woman Knock-Kneed Man" by Bobby Rush, "Good Thing (part 1)" by Casey Jones, "I Need Someone" by Artie Blues Boy White, and "Twine Time" by Alvin Cash.

17 North Parade, 1970s/1980s. New Copy .... $10.99 11.98
This one's for the ladies – The Ladies At Joe Gibbs, that is – featuring and sweet batch of classic-level numbers recorded at the legendary studios by Marcia Aitken, Althea, Christine, Dhaima and more. It's got a handful of treasures by "First Lady of Joe Gibbs" Marcia Aitken, plus some relatively obscure numbers and a few nice extended edits. A great little compilation from 17th North Parade! Includes "Ina Jah Children" by Dhaima, "My Man" by Marcia Aitken feat Trinity, "Gonna Get Along Without You Now" by Christine Oliver, "Holiday Style" by Jem & Dean, "Let Me Go Boy" by Marcia Aitken feat Ranking Joe, "Someone Loves You Honey", extended versions of "Emotion" by Marica Aitken feat Ruddy Thomas, "I Can't Stand The Rain" by Hortense Ellis and more. 15 tracks in all.

VariousLegendary Wild Rockers 2 – A Collection Of Rare Rockabilly & Surf From The 50s & Early 60s – Compiled By Keb Darge & Little Edith ... LP
BBE (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... $21.99 22.99
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.

VariousLipstick, Powder & Paint – The New York Dolls Heard Them Here First ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s/1960s. New Copy .... $15.99
Not the New York Dolls – despite their striking picture on the cover – and instead a whole host of great tracks from previous decades – all the rich R&B, rock, and soul that inspired the later sound of the Dolls! The cuts here are all nice and gritty, and plenty soulful too – and the set's very heavy on 50s and 60s sounds with bluesy vocals, fuzzy guitar, and nice rough edged rhythms! The versions here are way different than later New York Dolls takes on the tunes – and the set features 24 tracks that include "Lipstick Powder & Paint" by Joe Turner, "Somethin Else" by Eddie Cochran, "Bad Detective" by The Coasters, "Don't Start Me Talkin" by Sonny Boy Williamson, "Don't Mess With Cupid" by Otis Redding, "Pills" by Bo Diddley, "Seven Day Weekend" by Gary US Bonds, "Who Drank My Beer While I Was In The Rear" by Dave Bartholomew, "Big Fat Mamas Are Back In Style Again" by Bull Moose Jackson, "She Wants To Mambo" by The Chanters, "Uptown" by Chambers Brothers, and "Piece Of My Heart" by Erma Franklin.

VariousLooking Good – 75 Femme Mod Soul Nuggets (3CD set) ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 3 CDs .... $28.99
A massive set of female soul – and a great reminder that back in the 60s, it was often the gals who sung with more punch than the guys! Most numbers here are upbeat and grooving – some in a Northern Soul mode, but lots more in styles that go way past the standard groovers you'll find on other sets of this nature – a really rich array of rhythms and vocal harmonies that make the entire package a delight through and through! There's loads of rare tracks on the set – many we've never heard before – and the work seems to feature more groups than solo singers, although the groups often have a soloist out in the lead. The package is great – and features a book on the music too – and the set features 75 titles that include "Run Run" by The Persianettes, "Someone To Treat Me" by The De Vons, "Put Yourself In My Place" by Azie Mortimer, "The Boy I Love" by Renee Medina, "Stuck On You" by Yvonne Carroll & The Roulettes, "So Many Days" by The Vonns, "Looky Looky" by The Yum Yums, "I Stand Accused" by The Glories, and lots lots more!

VariousPhil Spector – Back To Mono 1958 to 1969 (4CD set) ... CD
Abkco, Late 50s/1960s. Used 4CD .... $38.99
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! All that, and a thick, nearly 100 page booklet! CD

VariousRhythm & Bluesin By The Bayou – Rompin & Stompin ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy .... $14.99
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.

VariousRough Guide To Latin Rare Groove (with bonus Spanglish Fly CD) ... CD
Rough Guide, 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD .... $13.99 14.98
A wicked little set that really gets at the way that Latin record collecting has moved way past the usual sounds from New York, Puerto Rico, and Cuba – to embrace a whole host of styles from around the globe! In a world of collections that feature oft-reissued numbers from the Fania catalog, this set goes way further to dig up a whole host of gems from north and south of the border – and even a few from the other side of the Atlantic as well – mostly older numbers, but also including a few contemporary cuts that fit well alongside the vintage numbers. Pablo Yglesias handled the track selection, with the same quality he brings to other Latin projects too – and titles include "Bamba Cure" by Mario Allison, "No Pago Na" by Alfredo Gutierrez, "Esa Mujer" by Los Kenya, "Denisth" by Grupo 2000, "Funky Tumbao" by Setenta, "My Shingaling Boy" by Spanglish Fly, "Domingo Por La Manana" by Carlos Pickling, "Black Shadow" by Orchestra Dee Jay, "Pensamiento" by Piper Pimienta, "Do You Want To Be Free" by Gilberto Sextet, and "Chevere" by Joe Quijana. Also features a bonus CD from Spanglish Fly – Let My People Boogaloo – a collection of work from the group's early years! CD

VariousTop Deck Presents Ska Vocalists – 40 Crucial Vocal Classics ... CD
Universal (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy .... $12.99
The birth of ska – served up in a host of hard-edged classics from the early years – great Jamaican tracks that sound a lot more like soul music than most later incarnations of the genre – no surprise, given that many of these cuts were crafted from the strong influence of American radio on the Kingston airwaves! The rhythms are definitely what you'd call ska, but the vocals often have a deeper approach than we're used to in later work of the genre – heavily tilted towards the soul and R&B side of the spectrum, especially when more than one singer is featured on a track – and often mixed with razor-sharp instrumentation that packs the punch of a vintage funky 45! Titles include "Valley Of Green" and "Take Your Time" by Jackie Opel, "Men Alone" by The Deacons, "Lonely & Blue Boy" by Ferdie Nelson, "Sweet Dreams" by Bibby & The Astronauts, "Snake In The Grass" by Larry Marshall, "Ten Virgins" by The Angelic Brothers, "Everyday" by The Avalons, "My Darling Josephine" by Joe G Henry, "Dream For Tomorrow" by Al & The Vibrators, "Fresh Out Of Love" and "Someone" by The Jetts, and "Never Too Young To Learn" by Andy & The Avalons. 40 tracks in all!

VariousUrban Latino – Essential Barrio Grooves Today Where Salsa Meets Hip Hop, R&B & Dancehall ... CD
Nascente (UK), 2005. Used .... $4.99
A nice little dip into the sound of modern Latin music – one that offers up some of the more soul-based styles of the scene, and which nicely gets past some of the fluffier hits and chart tracks! There's a groove here that's clearly influenced by mainstream R&B and hip hop, but which also borrows plenty of influences from older Latin modes – in a style that makes for a nice criss-crossing of modes that's not dissimilar to the work in the Favela Booty Barrio scene these days. The set features 15 tracks in all – including "What You Won't Do For Love" by Ricky Gonzalez, "Dejate Llevar" by Arianna Puello, "Mas Papaya" by Sidestepper, "Rebelion" by Yo Arroyo, "Quien Tiro La Tiza" by Clan 537, "Voz Sensual" by Big Boy, and "Walk With Me" by Alex Wilson R&B Latino.

VariousWarner Sound Of Burt Bacharach ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD .... $36.99
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.

A second chapter for boy band 80s soul! After Bobby Brown set off on his own, the remaining three members of New Edition decided to remain a group and give it a go, and far from being a sad collection of the leftover members, their debut album was actually one of many successful New Jack Swing efforts the group would produce! Given a helping hand from the Shocklee brothers on production, this set includes "Poison", "Do Me!", "Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, Mike, Ralph & Johnny (Word To The Mutha!)", "She's Dope!", "BBD (I Thought It Was Me)?", "When Will I See You Again?" and "Ain't Nut'in Changed!"

Jackson SistersJackson Sisters ... CD
1976. New Copy .... Around May 20, 2014
An amazing bit of soul – and one of the rarest funk records of the 70s! This masterpiece was recorded by The Jackson Sisters, a semi-gospelly soul group that has a sound that's a bit like The Voices of East Harlem, but that's a lot harder, and that has a deeper soul sound overall! At times, the group is funky – as on their incredible track "I Believe In Miracles", a rare groove classic if there ever was one, and one of the most in-demand tracks we've ever stocked. At other times, the girls have a mellower soul sound, with great raw harmonies that remind us of the Volt work by The Emotions, but with much rougher instrumental backing. This album's the only one they ever cut – and it's just about impossible to find in the original pressing (and in fact, we've never seen a copy!) Apart from the amazing cut "Miracles", this one includes loads of gems like "Rockin' On My Porch", "Shake Her Loose", "(Why Can't We Be) More Than Just Friends", and "Boy, You're Dynamite"! CD

Stephen John KalinichWorld Of Peace Must Come (colored vinyl) (2014 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
1969. New Copy Gatefold .... Around April 19, 2014
A really lost chapter in the career of Brian Wilson – an album produced by the famous Beach Boy for poet Stephen John Kalinich, done with a bit of music and vocals by Wilson himself! The record's quite odd – spare, thoughtful poetry – often recorded with slight production touches that make the vocals sound nicely weird – and occasional bits of music or other Wilson-like touches, but all in ways that are quite different from any Beach Boys work. Kalinich's words had an impact on the Friends album by the Beach Boys, but the feel here is a lot darker – and at the few points when Brian's background vocals come into play, it creates a great sense of contrast that hints at the darker corners of the late 60s world of pop in SoCal. Titles include "The Deer The Elk The Raven", "Candy Face Lane", "Lonely Man", "A World Of Peace Must Come", "If You Knew", and "America I Know You". Also features a bonus demo of "Leaves Of Grass". (Note: This item is not for sale online until after the close of business on Saturday, 4/19/14. It is in limited supply – and by nature of the Record Store Day rules, it will be offered for sale first to customers who visit the Dusty Groove retail outlet in Chicago on that day.

That's pretty much all you need to hear to know that this album rumbles with floor shaking bass, thunderous reverb drops and chattering echo, nicing up the heavy duty rhythms laid down by the Aggrovators.

Randy NewmanRandy Newman (180 gram vinyl mono version – with original cover) (2014 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
1969. New Copy (reissue).... Around April 19, 2014
An insanely wonderful first album from Randy Newman – and a perfect example of the way his unique style was a key confluence of all the best elements simmering underneath both late 60s LA and late 60s Warner Brothers! 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". (Note: This item is not for sale online until after the close of business on Saturday, 4/19/14.

Biggie's second LP, and while the production on some of the tracks features a fair bit of Puff Daddy's gloss, they'll still get your head nodding along to Biggie's incomparable flow. It was definitely hard to follow up Ready To Die, but the best cuts here manage to live up to the promise of his debut album. 24 tracks, including "Hypnotize", "Kick In the Door", "Mo Money Mo Problems", "Miss U", "Ten Crack Commandments", 'What's Beef?" and "Nasty Boy".

Gritty and powerful grooves from The Yardbirds – mixing bluesy guitars and psychedelia in a pretty incredible way – with some gestures from guitarist Jimmy Page that indeed seem predict a course he's take in more lumbering fashion with Led Zeppelin in the following few years. The set was produced by Mickie Most, and bit of poppier feel, though, and ultimately really exciting, still relevant stuff! Includes "Little Games", "Sime On Me", "White Summer", "Glimpses", "Drinking Muddy Water", "Little Soldier Boy", "Only The Black Rose", "No Excess Baggage" and "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor".

New Bill BlackSmokie ... CD
Hi Records/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1959. Used .... Just Sold Out!
One of the earliest albums on Hi Records – and a full set of heavy instrumentals from the Bill Black Combo! The groove is more R&B than Memphis soul – and is especially heavy on the sorts of rolling rhythms you'd hear from New Orleans – a sound that had obviously filtered north, and which at this time was still helping the Tennessee scene find its groove. Yet there's some definite Memphis touches going in here too – especially in the basslines and guitar, and a bit in the tenor solos – which can be nice and biting, with plenty of soul! Titles include "Smokie (parts 1 & 2)", "Cyclone Boy", "Dee J Special", "Anytime", "Before Dawn", "Special Duty", and "Crankcase". CD features two bonus tracks too – "Smokie (part 2) (stereo)", and "Smokie (part 2) (alternate version)". CD

The sessions also produced tracks that were later issued on the Safe As Milk compilation, but really need to be experienced in context, as it is here. Other tracks include "Safe As Milk (Take 12)", "Beatle Bones & Smokin' Stones" and "Gimme Dat Harp Boy". CD

Willie ColonCrime Pays ... LP
Fania, 1972. Very Good Gatefold .... Just Sold Out!
Classic work from Willie Colon – the "payoff" of his youthful hoodlum routine, and a hard-hitting batch of salsa tunes pulled from earlier records – all in a package that defines his groove of the 70s! Hector LaVoe's on vocals with Willie's group – and he's also standing with Willie on the cover, a nice image that has the two of them dressed as big-time gangsters, standing next to a Rolls Royce! (Wonder what it cost them to rent that for the cover shoot?) But more important than Willie's perpetuation of himself as the bad boy of Latin music, is the overall sound of the record – fierce salsa, with a really strong approach that's as bold and proud as the image which supports it. Solid all the way through, and tracks include "El Malo", "Jazzy", "El Titan", and "Che Che Cole", a nice groover. LP, Vinyl record album

Atco, 1972. Very Good Gatefold .... Just Sold Out!
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

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! LP, Vinyl record album

Barbara MasonI Am Your Woman, She Is Your Wife ... LP
Prelude, 1978. Very Good+ .... Just Sold Out!
A well-done set from Barbara Mason – one that's light years from her earlier soul work, and which takes her strongly into more mature territory! The approach is a bit Philly disco, a bit mellower soul – and the more laidback cuts actually work the best – bubbling along like a gentler take on the Miami sounds at TK Records – produced by Weldon McDougal with some slight deeper soul touches at times. Barbara really shines on these mellow steppers – the great "It Was You Boy", "More Of You", "Darling Come Back Home", and the excellent title cut "I Am Your Woman, She Is Your Wife", Barbara's latest entry into the Barbara/Shirley answer song cycle. Other tracks include "Take Me Tonight", "So Good", and "Joy In My Mind". LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1973. New Copy (reissue).... Just Sold Out!
"I need a fix – and a kiiiiiiiiiissssssss!" What can we say? Johnny Thunders, David Johansen and the boys reinvented the wheel with the of wildly hedonist glam skronk spun on this still incredible debut record. Both records they made for Mercury are incredible, but this is the bonafide masterpiece. It's a classic purely on a primal rock 'n' roll level, but it's also one of rock's greatest examples of style equaling substance! The Dolls brought glammer to the gutter and vice versa, and this is no doubt their greatest moment! Includes "Personality Crisis", "Looking For A Kiss", "Trash", "Frankenstein", "Pills", "Bad Girl", "Private World" and "Jet Boy". Produced by Todd Rundgren and engineered by Jack Douglas – the former a legend in his own right, the latter whose name appears on so many great records that range from other proto-punk and punk-era classics (Patti Smith Group, The Runaways) to the trashier side of the mainstream (prime early Cheap Trick, Aerosmith and Alice Cooper).

New RodriguezSearching For Sugar Man ... CD
Sussex/Sony, Early 70s. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
Amazing sounds from the legendary Rodriguez – the brilliant 70s singer who had a groove that was equal parts soul, funk, rock, and folk – and an overall approach that was pretty darn unique! Most numbers here have some acoustic guitar over slightly funky rhythms – perfectly scored to work with Rodriguez's raspy soul vocals, which have an undeniably heartfelt style – somewhere in a space between Terry Callier and early Jose Feliciano, but very much its own mode too! This CD features great gems from Rodriguez's years at Sussex Records – including three tracks not on the albums – "Can't Get Away", "Street Boy", and "I'll Slip Away" – plus other titles that include "Sugar Man", "Cause", "I Wonder", "Like Janis", "Jane S Piddy", "I Think Of You", "Inner City Blues", and "Sandrevan Lullaby Lifestyles".

Chrysalis, 1980. Very Good+ .... 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". LP, Vinyl record album

Kudu, 1972. Very Good .... Just Sold Out!
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

Loads of tight rolling basslines and hard drums – all produced with that polished funky sound that was the band's stock-in-trade during the big chart years!

The tracks are long, and plenty jamming – still with plenty of star power from Bootsy upfront – but also some wonderfully tight rhythms from the rest of the players too, all in that mix of hard-rolling, and light-tripping funk modes that still set the P-Funk groups apart from the pack of imitators who'd cropped up in their wake!

Dionn/Jamie, 1967. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Incredible early work from Brenda & The Tabulations – one of the best male/female soul groups of their era, yet one that's often sadly overlooked! This album will more than display why the group are so great – as they have a unique quality that's soft and sweet, yet also deeply soulful at the same time – making full use of the lead vocals of Brenda Payton, but supporting them with some rich male harmony backings from the rest of the Tabulations. And although the one gal, three guy format is one used by Ruby & The Romantics and Gladys Knight & The Pips, Brenda's take on the format is quite different – more like female soul outright, with some guy soul touches – and often done in a heartbreaking east coast harmony mode! Titles include the group's big early hit "Dry Your Eyes", plus other good originals like "The Wash", "Just Once in a Lifetime", and "Hey Boy". Also with "Stay Together Young Lovers", and "Who's Lovin You" – plus a wonderful remake of "God Only Knows". CD also includes bonus cuts "That's In The Past" and "When You're Gone". CD

The record shows an earlier spirit of the Chicago scene alive and well – that genre-crossing, generation-spanning love of so many different sounds and styles at once – a mode that first burst forth on the scene two decades back, often in the hands of John McEntire, who produced this album – and which still stands strong in the hands of its best purveyors like this.

Guinness/Am Tracks (UK), 1977. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing lost soul from James Conwell – best known for his vocal work in The Exits and Smoked Sugar, but sounding even better here in the solo spotlight! The set's from the mid 70s, but it's got a warm harmony soul style that feels a lot more like work right at the start of the decade – a beautiful indie approach to mellow soul that's completely sublime – and which makes the album feel like some treasure trove of rare harmony singles from a small east coast label. The backings are great – never too full, but always with the right sort of floating groove to keep Conwell's vocals going – and most numbers feature some sort of vocal group backing James up, keeping the harmony sound strong. Arrangements are by Gene Page, Arthur Wright and Rene Hall – with tracks that include "L-O-V-E", "I'm So Glad (Love Is Here To Stay)", "Dreams Of A Shoeshine Boy", "Butterfly", "Indian Giver", "Second Hand Happiness", "Let It All Out", "Another Sundown In Watts", and "Gotta Have Money".

The title's not lying – because the set's definitely a batch of Beatle hits, done flamenco style – all served up by guitarist Sonny Curtis, best known for his earliest work with Buddy Holly & The Crickets! Here, Sonny sounds a heck of a lot different than before – playing acoustic guitar in a mode that's partly flamenco, partly folksy – and which offers up some gentler versions of Beatles tunes than you might expect – almost bossa-styled at times, given the use of acoustic guitar and gentle rhythms! We wonder if this one ever made it to the Beatle-loving scene in 60s Brazil – and if it didn't back then, it certainly should now. Titles include "She Loves You", "This Boy", "Do You Want To Know A Secret", "All My Loving", "Hard Day's Night", "Little Child", "Things We Said Today", and "PS I Love You". LP, Vinyl record album

We're the first to admit, we've taken a few shots at Dre over the years on these pages, but there's no denying his impact on hip hop, and that he's probably the producer with one of the longest and most solid careers. We're not pretending this album's any kind of landmark as far as mic skills are concerned, but it's a classic nonetheless. For better or worse, this LP was the template for too many pale imitators, but taken on its own, stands up to the test of time, whiny keyboards and all. 16 tracks in all, counting the interludes, including "F**k wit Dre Day", "Let Me Ride", "Nuthin' But A G Thang", "Lil Ghetto Boy", "A Nigga Witta Gun", "B!tches Ain't Sh!t", "The Chronic", "Deeez Nuts", "Stranded On Death Row" and more.

Island, 1970. New Copy (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

New Dyke & The BlazersWe Got More Soul – The Ultimate Broadway Funk ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The best collection we've ever seen of the work of funky soul legends Dyke & The Blazers – a double-length set that features full, unedited versions of their classics – plus a whopping batch of previously unreleased tunes! Dyke & The Blazers had a groove that was mighty solid back in the late 60s – a hard-vamping, tightly rhythmic groove that easily matched the best early funk of the time from Charles Wright, Sly Stone, or James Brown – and which was often served up with a rougher edge, and an overall sound that was a lot more dangerous! However, many of the group's singles really trimmed down their performances – shaving off key instrumental moments that are lovingly re-attached here, and combining them with some even rarer tracks that never saw the light of day back in the 60s. The whole thing's amazing – and this 2LP set features 18 tracks that include "Black Boy", "Stuff", "Moon", "Booga Jivin", "Runaway People", "Funky Broadway Time (parts 1 & 2)", "Swamp Walk", "Extra Funk", "Let A Woman Be A Woman Let A Man Be A Man", "Soul Cake", "She Knows It", "Let's Do It Together", "Bring It On Back", "Funky Walk (parts 1 & 2)", and "Triple Funk".

Quite a rare vocal jazz session – recorded for the short lived Jazz West label, which was one of the hippest LA imprints of the 50s! Jane Fielding's a pretty decent singer – with kind of a Chris Connor-ish style about her – but the real charm is from Kenny Drew's work as a pianist and arranger, both of which push the session past the usual sleepiness of a Bethlehem or Mode vocal jazz album from the time. Kenny's group features Joe Maini on alto, Ted Efantis on tenor, Lawrence Marable on drums, and either Leroy Vinnegar or Paul Chambers on bass. Titles include "Embers Glow", "Our Waltz", "Right Boy For Me", "Key Largo", "Make The Man Love Me", and "Round Midnight". CD

New Carolyn FranklinSister Soul – The Best Of The RCA Years 1969 to 1976 ... CD
RCA/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Massive work from Aretha Franklin's ultra-hip sister – singer Carolyn Franklin, a soul artist that we'd gladly trade for Aretha any time! Carolyn got her start in deep soul modes that were somewhat similar to Aretha's work on Atlantic – but she also worked with production that was a bit looser, freer, and more open to righteous influences than some of her sister's hit-bound sessions – and over the course of 4 albums for RCA she recorded some tremendously hip and funky tunes! This package is one of the first times that Carolyn's material has ever officially made it into the reissue years – and it brings together some of the best cuts from her RCA albums, including work arranged by Horace Ott, Wade Marcus, Bert De Coteaux, and other soul legends. There's a good deal of funk in the mix here – heavy bottoms on the tunes that really make them snap alongside the righteous vocals – and the package is easily one of the hardest-hitting sets of female soul you could ever hope to buy! 22 tracks in all – including "If You Want Me", "There I Go", "Ain't That Groovy", "Boxer", "Reality", "Chain Reaction", "Don't Wake Me Up In The Morning Michael", "Not On The Outside", "Boy I Love You", "You Are Everything", "Shattered Pride", "I Can't Help My Feeling So Blue", "As Long As You Are There", and "You Can Have My Soul".

The album's got a camp appeal that can't be denied – known famously for it's big post-disco hit "I Love A Man In Uniform" – but overall the whole thing actually seems pretty well thought out – taking the heady politics of earlier records, and putting them into catchy guitar-driven dancefloor tracks that clearly get the message out to a whole new audience of converts! Titles include "Call Me Up", "I Love A Man In Uniform", "Life It's A Shame", "I Will Be A Good Boy", "The History Of The World", "Muscle For Brains", "Of The Instant", and the sublime William Blake-inspired groover "We Live As We Dream, Alone".

An overlooked girl group from the 80s – but one who step out here with a sound to rival the hits of artists like Vanity 6 or The Mary Jane Girls! Like both of those acts, The Girls get help here from a bigger soul artist in the studio – Minneapolis giant Andre Cymone, who wrote and produced the record with a vibe that's very similar to his own albums of the time! Cymone always had some of the tightest grooves in the world of early 80s funk – and this album's filled with his trademark beats and basslines, and those lean keyboard lines that lay in plenty of punch underneath the vocals. The Girls sing with a style that's less harmonic than a triple-threat lead – and their catchy approach works well with the lyrics of the tunes. Titles include "Women & Men", "Don't Waste My Time", "SESEX", "Nu Boy", "My Man", and "What Do I See In You". LP, Vinyl record album

A wonderful step forward for the team of Hall & Oates – and a set that has them moving more into soul than ever before! The album's a tremendous collaboration with the legendary Arif Mardin, who takes the pair's well-crafted vocals into territory that's much more slinkily soulful than some of their previous records – that sound that was always lurking in the background, never quite right, but which emerges here fully in that classic 70s Hall & Oates mode. Daryl and John seem to harmonize more here than before, and the backings are still somewhat rockish, but have a warmth that really suits their singing. We can't argue with the sublime brilliance of "She's Gone", one of those tracks that we've heard a bazillion times, but never cease to respect – and other titles include "Everytime I Look At You", "Had I Known You Better Then", "When The Morning Comes", and "Laughing Boy".

Tracks are short, but in a good way that really keeps them focused – and other players who complete the groove include Clark Terry on trumpet and Ron Carter on bass – both of whom nicely pick up Chico's sense of adventure and humor.

Both Donny Hathaway concert albums in a single set – both on US CD for the first time! CD 1 features Donny Hathaway Live – massively beautiful work from the legendary Donny! 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. In Performance was issued after Donny's untimely death, and features rare live material from his classic years – most recorded during the same concerts on Donny Hathaway Live! As the fame of his first concert album will attest, Donny's an extremely wonderful live performer, with a wealth of talents that show that his studio work is only half the picture of his soulful creativity. Includes a great version of "Sack Full Of Dreams", plus "Nu-Po", "Song For You", "I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know", and "To Be Youg, Gifted, & Black". 2CD set features new remastering too – better than ever!

To our ears, the most exciting music comes from the unreleased cuts – work that really goes a long way towards filling out the all-too-short catalog of this legendary soul singer – and a perfect complement to his classic Atlantic Records albums from the 70s. Unreleased studio tracks include "A Lot Of Soul", "Let's Groove", "Latin Time", "Tally Rand", "Sunshine Over Showers", "Don't Turn Away", "Always The Same", "Zyxygy Concerto", "Sands Of Time & Changes", and the instrumental "Brown Eyed Lady" – and the set also features 10 previously unreleased cuts from Donny's famous 1971 run at The Bitter End – live tracks that include "Jealous Guy", "I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know", "Hey Girl", "He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother", "The Ghetto", "Voices Inside", "Sack Full Of Dreams", and "What's Going On". Another CD features great singles – including the rare early duets with June Conquest on "I Thank You Baby" and "Just Another Reason" – plus mono single versions of "This Christmas", "Magnificent Sanctuary Band", "Lord Help Me", and "A Song For You" – as well as a duet with Margie Joseph on "Come Back Charleston Blue", the studio version of "Little Ghetto Boy", and the cuts "Love Love Love", "You Were Meant For Me", "I Believe To My Soul", and "Young Gifted & Black". The final CD features duets with Roberta Flack on 13 tracks that include "Mood", "Back Together Again", "You Are My Heaven", "Be Real Black For Me", "You've Lost That Lovin Feeling", "For All We Know", and "When Love Has Grown". 58 tracks in all – and a sweet package too!

A new level of pride and power for The Impressions – as you might guess from the bold statement of the title track! It may seem hard to believe from the perspective of the 21st Century, but back in the mid 60s, a message like "We're A Winner" was quite a strong one – a new anthem of righteous identity that was one of the first truly political statements from a young Curtis Mayfield, and a great precursor of the genius to come in the 70s! But even at this early state, there's still plenty of genius going on – not just in Mayfield's sublime songwriting, but also in the harmonies of the group, and the beautiful treatment they get in the studio from arranger Johnny Pate. The album's one of their key classics from the ABC years – and titles include "We're A Winner", "Moonlight Shadows", "Nothing Can Stop Me", "I'm Gettin Ready", "Let Me Tell The World", and "Little Brown Boy".

New Teena MarieFirst Class Love – Rare Tee ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, Mid 70s-Early 80s. Used 2CD .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An absolute treasure from Hip-O Select – the early, pre-Rick James recordings that Teena Marie made at Motown in 1976 and 1977 and more – most of them produced by the great Ronnie McNeir, along with acoustic demos produced by Berry Gordy himself! There are early signs of Teena's best work to come on this set – her voice is certainly as beautiful and richly soulful as it would ever be. The McNeir productions touch on timeless emotional soul, 70s dancefloor styles with bigger arrangements and some more classic-leaning groovers – not only demonstrating her range, but they stand up very well with the official releases to come. We can't understand why it sat in a vault all this time. Disc 1 features tracks produced by McNeir (which include a trio of sweet duets with Ronnie) and some bonus mixes from 1983 for a record that never happened – plus a few great tracks produced by Winston Monseque, Kenny Kerner and Riche Wise. The 8 tracks on disc 2 might have even more of a grail-like stature – acoustic demo sessions produced by Berry Gordy in 1976. Those feature just Teena Marie accompanying herself on acoustic guitar – as intimate a setting as we've ever heard from her, and mostly doing her own songs. It's amazing stuff – and the project was approved by Teena Marie herself before she passed away. Includes "First Class Love", "More Love", "You Got Away", "Oh Love" and more featuring Ronnie McNeir, "Co-Pilot To Pilot", "Hey Boy" and more on disc 1. Acoustic demos on disc 2 include "First Class Love", "Don't Turn Your Back On Me", "God Has Created", "Wasn't I Good To You", "Happiness Is In Your Soul", "The Greatest Love Of All Time" and more.

New Paul McCartneyRam ... LP
Apple, 1971. Used Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early moment of genius from post-Beatles Paul McCartney – a solo set that's wonderfully diverse throughout – filled with the kinds of cool little twists and turns we loved in his late Beatles records, and in his 70s killers with Wings! There's a newly-emerging sweetness going on here – that great sound that started to emerge with the McCartney album – where Paul was a proud, put-together family guy – easily one of the most confident of his fab foursome, and able to bring an incredible amount of charm to just about any style he wanted to try! Some of the best cuts here are the mellower, more personal moments – still delivered with an amazing rock-solid sense of musicianship and production, too – and even the rockers, which might sound clunky in the hands of anyone else, manage to come off with a great deal of charm as well. Titles include the wonderfully playful "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey" – plus "Too Many People", "Heart Of The Country", "Dear Boy", "Ram On", "The Back Seat Of My Car", and "Smile Away".

New Eugene McDanielsOutlaw ... LP
Atlantic, 1970. New Copy (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible step forward for 60s soul singer Gene McDaniels – so much so, that most folks hearing this album can't believe he's the same guy who recorded for Liberty Records a few years before! The album's incredibly righteous right from the start – and has a genre-busting quality that isn't quite soul, but isn't rock or anything else either – and instead, the kind of progressive, "years ahead of its time" sort of set that guys like David Axelrod were cutting in the same stretch. Apart from the title, the whole record's got a strong political message that's probably best embodied in the statement on the back – "Under conditions of national emergency, like now, there are only two kinds of people – those who work for freedom, and those who do not – the good guys vs the bad guys". With words like that, you can definitely bet that Eugene is on the side of the good guys – really pushing a social agenda with some wonderfully-penned tunes on the album – set to cool musical backdrops from the equally-righteous William S Fischer. Titles include "Love Letter To America", "Black Boy", "Outlaw", and "Sagittarius Red". LP, Vinyl record album

New Blue MitchellBring It Home To Me ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1966. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Genius work from trumpeter Blue Mitchell – one of his most solid sides as a leader from the 60s, and a well-deserved treasure in the Blue Note catalog! The album's quite different than the straight soul jazz of Blue's early days on Riverside – or the more arranged dates of the late 60s – and it features him moving in a soulful, lyrical, modal style – quite similar to Horace Silver in conception, but with a fresh execution that's mighty nice – and which marks Mitchell as one of the fresher trumpet voices of his generation! The whole group's great, too – and the lineup includes Junior Cook on tenor, Blue's old bandmate from Horace Silver's group – plus Harold Mabern on piano, who really helps shape the sound of the record, Gene Taylor on bass and Billy Higgins on drums. Tracks include gems from Mitchell, Jimmy Heath, and Tom McIntosh – titles that include "Bring It Home To Me", "Blues 3 For 1", "Port Rico Rock", and "Ginger Bread Boy". CD

New Tonu NaissooTonu Naissoo Trio (with bonus track) ... LP
Jazzaggression (Finland), 1968. New Copy (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the earliest work from legendary Estonian pianist Tonu Naissoo – an artist who's only gotten his due on the global scene in the past decade or two, but who was a hell of a visionary right from the start! Tonu's got this way of balancing lyrical elements and darker corners – qualities that really come out strongly in all the original songs he penned for the record, which have a feel that's quite different than most other piano trio material from the period. There's a fresh, inventive quality that we'd compare to the best late 60s work on MPS/Saba – but Tonu's also got a really personal vibe that's all his own – this way of being restless on the keys, while still being relaxed – searching out, while still holding to himself as well. Most numbers feature just a trio – but two tracks have these lovely flute lines from Avo Joala, and one more has vocals from Els Himma. Titles include "The Opening", "Boy & Girl", "Haapsalu Town", "Two Old Women", "Journey Into The Unknown", and "Come Ever Up To My Love". LP features a bonus track – an instrumental version of "Come Ever Up To My Love". LP, Vinyl record album

The second full album from Nazz – a set that has Todd Rundgren extending even more dominance over the group through his original songs and arrangements – and, we're willing to guess, a fair bit of production work too – even though that's credited here to the entire band! Rundgren's still not singing lead vocals on most of the tunes, so they've got that slighty more psychedelic feel the group put forth on their debut – but the guitars here have also stepped back a bit, and many of the best tracks have that more fragile, more personal feel that we've always loved in Todd's solo work – even if some of the themes are still a bit varied. Titles include "Hang On Paul", "Rain Rider", "Gonna Cry Today", "Featherbedding Lover", "Kiddie Boy", "Forget All About It", "Not Wrong Long", and "Meridian Leeward". LP, Vinyl record album

Strong work from the Peterson Trio's London House gig in Chicago in 1961 – material that offers some slightly longer than usual takes on the group's sound, especially on a few numbers that really let Oscar open up on the keys! The group here is the legendary combo with Ed Thigpen on drums and Ray Brown on bass – but on the album's long versions of "Sometimes I'm Happy", "In The Wee Small Hours" and "Chicago", it's Oscar's inventive work on the keys that really dominates the nearly 10 minute run of each track.

Flicknife/Numero, 1983. New Copy (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first magnificent pairing of Nikki Sudden and Dave Kusworth – a set that's issued under Nikki's name, but which has all the magical energy of their Jacobites recordings together! There's an instantly timeless feel going on here – almost an indie punk refiguration of the best ideas of The Rolling Stones and other giants of the years before – but stripped down into a personal quality that's far more moving – and which almost makes you feel like you've stumbled upon some lost demo recordings from unknown friends of Mick and Keith. But that's only part of the picture, too – as the album's got a great sense of variety – including some female vocals at a few points – all to grace a great run of tracks that include "Six Hip Princes", "Gold Painted Nails", "Cathy", "Chelsea Embankment", "The Road Of Broken Dreams", "The Only Boy In Heaven", and "English Girls".

New SupremesMore Hits By The Supremes ... LP
Motown, 1965. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer from the early days of The Supremes – and way more than you'd guess from the "hits" in the title! The record's not really a roundup of the hit singles already out on 45 – and is actually just an apt title for what the album was destined to be – a stone hit that really put these Motown legends on the map! Production is by the Holland/Dozier/Holland team – with a marvelous wall of sound-style groove that really pushes the vocals forward tremendously – that brilliant all-in Motown mode of the best early years, where the Detroit studio was working overtime to make things sound amazing. Titles include the massive hit "Stop! In The Name Of Love" – but the whole thing's a solid effort with no filler, and other cuts include "I'm In Love Again", "He Holds His Own", "Whisper You Love Me Boy", "The Only Time I'm Happy", "Nothing But Heartaches", "Honey Boy", and "Back In My Arms Again".

Brainfeeder, 2011. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the great modern genre-busting debuts we've had the pleasure of being so stunned by in quite a while! Thundercat's Golden Age is dizzyingly brilliant mix of 80s clubby synths and keys, future soul & funky soundscapes, 70s soul jazzy atmospherics and more – but it's hardly a mere genre-mash, Thundercat's got a unique and inventive vision all his own. A number of tracks feature vocals, but it's really about the mood – and what an expansive mood it is! He shows love here for influential figures from George Duke to Brainfeeder honcho Flying Lotus, to Erykah Badu – great stuff and we're thinking he's only gonna get better from here. Titles include "Hooooooo" (inspired by mid 70s George Duke), "Daylight", "For Love I Come", "Jamboree", "Boat Cruise", "Walkin", "Mystery Machine", "Return To The Journey", "Golden Boy", "Walkin'" (feat Erykah Badu) and more.

Motown/Kent (UK), 1962/1963. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

Decca, 1970. Used 2LP Trifold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

As the title indicates, the set features older Atlantic soul classics – remixed by a host of modern talents that include King Britt, Sa-Ra, Vikter Duplaix, and Quantic – all producers who really respect the sound of the original tunes! There's a great range of styles in the original work – which runs from soul jazz, to 70s soul, to 80s groove – and in a way, the whole thing's kind of an imagined selection of what some of these tunes might have sounded like, had they been issued during the time of 12" remixes!

Blue Rock/Mercury, Late 60s. Used 2CD .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing chapter in the history of Chicago soul – a deep look at the ultra-hip Blue Rock subsidiary of Mercury Records – home to a host of amazing singles back in the 60s! Blue Rock was only around for a few years, but managed to record some really great music – soul tunes that rival the greatness of better-known Chicago soul work on Brunswick or Okeh, bluesy bits that almost beat Chess at their own game, and some grittier grooves that feel like the best indie sides you might find on Windy City labels like Twinight or Dakar. The package is filled with amazing Chicago cuts – 60 numbers that really make us proud to be living in the powerhouse of the midwest – brought together with a level of hipness we'd hardly expect from a major label collection. Titles include "Let Her Love Me" by Otis Leavill, "Baby What's Wrong" by Johnnie Mae Matthews, "Got No Excuse" by James Crawford, "Look At Me" by The Deletts, "Baby Don't Leave Me" by Jimmy Holland, "Does Anybody Love Me" by Joyce Kennedy, "I Won't Let Her See Me Cry" by Big Frank & The Essences, "Baby Boy" by Janeen Henry, "Come On & Love Me" by Dizzy Jones, "Cheaters Never Get Anywhere" by Big Tim & The Empires, "She's Mine" by The Chi-Lites, "Darling I'll Get Along Somehow" by Reggie Lamont, "Don't Go Away" by Reginald Domino, "Ooo Baby" by Bobby Hutton, "Lost & Found" by Kenny Carlton, "You're Tuff Enough" by Jr Wells, "A Grown Man Cry" by Chino Feaster, " Over My Dead Body" by Benny & Tina, "Checkin Out" by The Festivals, "Love Ain't Never Hurt Nobody" by Brenda Duff, and "I'm In Your Corner" by Roy Hytower.

Amazing work from one of Chicago's best indie labels of the 60s – a wealth of wonderful soul that easily ranks with some of the best work at Chess or Vee Jay at the time! USA's a label that's also known for work in the rock and blues field, but the company had a marvelous ear for soul back in the day – and was often able to grab key Windy City talents before they broke big – or others who were already great, but finally found the right sort of treatment they needed at USA – a care with production and presentation that often rivals some of the beautiful presentation that Curtis Mayfield was bringing to his Impressions recordings or work with other artists – lots of deep soul roots, but also the tightness and sophistication that made Chicago so great at the time. The package features 36 rock-solid tracks – and titles include "Hot Spring Water" by Billy The Kid Emerson, "Come On In" by Detroit Jr, "A Lonely Boy" by Lee Wilson, "Step It Up" by Al Perkins, "I'll Wait For You" by LC Cooke, "No Appreciation" by Tut Sutton, "Taunting Love" by Frankie Newsom, "Just Being Careful" by Baby Huey & The Baby Sitters, "What You Don't Know" by Oscar & Anita, "Sweet Little Woman" by McKinley Sandifer, and "You Gotta Pay Dues" by Chris Campbell.

Titles include "Dancin In The Key Of Life", "Gasoline", "Stand With Me", "Turn Up The Love", "Brown Baby Boy", "Feel So Real", and "She Just Don't Know". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small sticker.)

New La La BrooksAll Or Nothing ... CD
Norton, 2013. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Brand new solo work from La La Brooks of The Crystals – a singer who first worked with Phil Spector when she was only 13 years old – and who still sounds pretty darn great all these many years later! The folks at Norton have kept the record strongly in an old school 60s soul mode – a style that works perfectly with La La's lead, as she works her way through a surprisingly great range of tunes – not just soul numbers, but a few surprising rockers from the Small Faces, Bee Gees, Willy DeVille, and others – tracks that really help bring a mod soul vibe to the album. Titles include "All Or Nothing", "A Boy Like You", "Crazy For You", "Dear Boy Love Girl", "I Broke That Promise", "Sun Is Shining", and "Two Is Company". CD

New Johnny CashAmerican IV – The Man Comes Around (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
American, 2002. New Copy 2LP (reissue).... Out Of Stock
Cash's fourth volume of stark, sparely-arranged studio recordings for producer/set list provider Rick Rubin. As Johnny gets on in the years his always haunting voice, like Bob Dylan's, is weighted by age, but the heavily-breathed delivery only adds to the ghostly quality of the increasingly dark tunes. With this fourth set in the series we're far past being surprised by the choices of material – this time Cash conjures up spiritual takes on Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus", Trent Reznor's "Hurt", Lennon/McCartney's "In My Life", and more traditional material like Hank Williams' "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" and the eternally underrated Marty Robbins' "Big Iron". You can't forget that Cash's pen is still pretty sharp, too, as the really spooky imagery in the title track and others testify. The accompaniment includes the great Randy Scruggs, Beck/Tom Waits guitarist Smokey Hormel, Marty Stuart, Glen Campbell, and backing vocals by Nick Cave and Fiona Apple. Another great one from the greatest! Other tracks include "Give My Love To Rose", "Sam Hall", "Danny Boy" and "We'll Meet Again". LP, Vinyl record album

New Chicago Underground DuoLocus (with download) ... LP
Northern Spy, 2014. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Pretty electric sounds from the Chicago Underground Duo – a set that has Rob Mazurek adding in lots of electronics (even a Game Boy!) to his usual cornet lines, plus some other acoustic elements that work really well with the drums, mbira, and balaphone of Chad Taylor! The record shows an earlier spirit of the Chicago scene alive and well – that genre-crossing, generation-spanning love of so many different sounds and styles at once – a mode that first burst forth on the scene two decades back, often in the hands of John McEntire, who produced this album – and which still stands strong in the hands of its best purveyors like this. Titles include "Yaa Yaa Kole", "Blink Out", "Kabuki", "Dante", "House Of The Axe", "Borrow & Bury", and "Locus". LP, Vinyl record album

New ClipseLord Willin' (plus bonus track) ... LP
Star Trak/Get On Down, 2002. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue).... Out Of Stock
The first Clipse album to see release – and a neo-electro/drug rap/crossover hip hop masterpiece produced by the Neptunes – the debut LP on their own Star Trak label. Malice and Pusha T arrive as smooth, confident rhymers with plenty of standout moments, while the Neptunes reach an early production peak. The Neptunes' fingerprints are evident on just about every second of every track, but it doesn't diminish the role of the rappers in the least. This is a true hip hop record from beginning to end, something the 'tunes had shied away from around the same time with the hard rockin' NERD and their more pop-oriented productions. We thought from the first needle drop that this was a record we'd be able to come back to for years and years and years, and that indeed holds true! Tracks include "Young Boy", "Ma, I Don't Love Her" featuring Faith Evans, "Ego", "Comedy Central" featuring Fabulous, "Gangsta Lean", "Let's Talk About It" featuring Jermaine Dupri, and more. 2014 Get On Down reissue includes the Selector remix of "Grindin'" feat Sean Paul, Bless, Kardinall Offishall, NORE, Baby & Lil' Wayne.

New DamonSong Of A Gypsy (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Now Again, Late 60s. Used 2CD .... Out Of Stock
An amazing reissue of this now-legendary album – once a lost psych oddity, but a set that's gone onto make plenty of waves over the years! Song Of A Gypsy may well be one of the best self-issued psych sets from the American underground – a really well-written, well-recorded record that has a very dark personal vision – an approach to the music that's instantly unique, and which shows that digging for rare psych albums can really yield the occasional gem that stands head and shoulders with the bigger names of the time! Damon's voice is darkly spooky, and couched with these cool flanged-out guitar lines on the sides – creating a space that's very personal, and which seems to let the lyrics hit these qualities that go much deeper than usual. The core album's been treasured for years by the few fans who had an original copy, and by a few more who had a previous reissue – but this double-length set is the first to ever tell the true tale of the enigmatic Damon – with a huge 64 page booklet of notes, and a massive amount of rare bonus tracks too. The core album includes "Song Of A Gypsy", "Funky Funky Blues", "Don't You Feel Me", "The Night", "Feel Your Love", "Oh What A Good Boy Am I", and "Birds Fly So High". Bonus tracks include some demo and 45 versions of "Song Of A Gypsy", plus "Don't Cry", "Lonely Surfer", "Bowlin Alley Jane", "Everything Is Alright", "The Little White Cloud That Cried", "I Wonder Why", and "I've Got My Pride".

Last time round, DJ Moar worked more in a classic b-boy mode – but this time he's paying tribute to the jazzier side of the contemporary soul underground, on a hip host of vocal and instrumental tracks! The set's a bit of a mix, but most numbers are relatively intact – served up in a great array of head-nodding beats, sweet keyboards, and a few choice vocal moments! LP, Vinyl record album

New Nick DrakeBryter Layter ... CD
Island, 1970. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
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". CD

New Durutti ColumnLC (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Factory/4 Men With Beards, 1979. New Copy (reissue).... Out Of Stock
Pure and lovely sounds from the early days of Durutti Column – music from a time when guitarist Vini Reilly's conception was quite fresh, and deeply personal – so much so, his music really stood out amidst the darker sounds of his post-punk generation! As with the first Durutti Column album on Factory Records, this one often features Reilly's electric guitar overdubbed in cool ways – spare, but flowing – almost as if he's a Pat Metheny for the UK underground – but serving up short songs that are never overindulgent. But unlike the first record, Reilly also sings a bit – with this light, haunting style that's surprisingly compelling – one of those rare cases where a thin voice can often carry a lot of power – especially with spare instrumentation like this. Titles include the sublime "Missing Boy" – plus "Sketch For Dawn", "Jacqueline", "Messidor", "The Act Committed", "Detail For Paul", and "Portrait For Frazer". LP, Vinyl record album

New Don ElliottDon Elliott Sings ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1955. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Don Elliott puts down his mellophone and starts to sing – and the results are a surprisingly strong set that's one of his standouts of the 50s! Don's got a limited range, but more than makes up for it with his sense of personality – a mode that's a bit like Jackie Paris or Matt Dennis at the time, with qualities that are quite far from mainstream male pop vocals of the period! Backing is by a core cool combo that includes Billy Byers on trombone and Hal McKusick on alto and flute – and the tunes have a sweet modern quality that's mighty fresh. Titles include "Ooh Baby It Scares Me", "I Hadn't Anyone Til You", "Every Time", "Let's Fall In Love", "Whatever Happened To You", and "Looking For A Boy". CD

New Tal FarlowTal Farlow Album (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1954/1955. Used .... Out Of Stock
Tremendous guitar work from the great Tal Farlow – easily one of our favorite jazz guitarists ever, and a player with a wonderful sense of tone and timing! This early album has Tal declaring himself loudly and firmly – using a style that's got some slightly raspy edges, and which is a nice change from some of the too-clean modes of other 50s guitarists. The album features a core original 10" album session with a group that includes Oscar Pettiford on bass, Barry Galbraith on guitar, and Joe Morello on drums – plus 4 more tracks from a trio with Red Mitchell on bass and Claude Williamson on piano. Titles include "This Is Always", "Tea For Two", "Blues In The Closet", "Gibson Boy", "My Old Flame", "Is There Somebody Lovelier Than You", "Everything I've Got", "You And The Night and Music", "Love Nest", and "When The Wind And The Rain Are In Your Hair".

Capitol, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue).... 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".

An incredibly haunting session that has Stan's edgey alto fronting some of Russ Garcia's arch-modernist string arrangements – similar to those that he contributed to other Verve albums of the same style. Getz maintains a wonderfully breathy tone that floats above the orchestrations, and the album's a real winner that shows a side of Stan that wasn't always captured by Verve. Titles include "Round Midnight", "Nature Boy", "It Never Entered My Mind", and "Early Autumn". LP, Vinyl record album

Al takes over the whole deal with this one – as the record features him writing, producing, arranging, and even playing lead guitar! Of course, he gets a bit of help – from Fred Jordan and Reuben Fairfax, whose names are hidden in smaller type, under the message on the back that says that the record is "something new". Well, it doesn't have Willie Mitchell, that's for dang sure. Al's voice is always nice and pretty, and the record's still got some really nice moments! Titles include "All N All", "Belle", "Loving You", "Georgia Boy", "Feels Like Summer" and "Dream". LP, Vinyl record album
