New Bill Medley/Eric Burdon/Mike Curb/David LucasMagic Garden Of Stanley Sweetheart ... LP
MGM, Early 70s. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A weird assortment of tunes from a variety of artists – designed to accompany what looks like a pretty stoned-out film! Most tracks on here are rock or vocal numbers, a variety of covers and originals that include "Nobody Knows" by Bill Medley, "Magic Mountain" by Eric Burdon & War, "Water" by Michael Greer, "Funny How It Happens" by Stilroc, "Sound Of Love" by Angeline Butler, and "Sweet Gingerbread Man" and "Happy Together" by The Mike Curb Congregation. Those are all fine, but the really wonderful track on the record is "Blood" by David Lucas – a very trippy instrumental that begins tight and funky, with lots of bass/drum/guitar grooving, plus nice use of vibes, and which then goes really over the top near the end and gets way fuzzed out and messed up!

VariousRolling With The Punches – The Allen Toussaint Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy .... $14.99
Heavy funk, deep soul, and lots lots more – an amazing testament to the songwriting skills of New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint! Allen was a heck of a singer on his own – but he also worked plenty behind the scenes in the 60s and 70s – lending his tunes to many others, and producing a good number of recordings as well – some of the best of which are featured in this sweet little set! The package features two dozen smoking tunes from the pen of Toussaint – songs that are heavy on influences from New Orleans soul and funk – already sounding great in the hands of other soul singers in the collection, and really helping transform the style of other artists in ways you might not expect. The whole thing's got the same righteous vibe as Allen's best records from the 70s – and titles include "I'll Be Rolling" by Millie Jackson, "Hercules" by Boz Scaggs, "Occapella" by Lee Dorsey, "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by Solomon Burke, "Sweet Touch Of Love" by Irma Thomas, "Sneakin Sally Thru The Alley" by Robert Palmer, "What Do You Want The Girl To Do" by Lowell George, "Shoo Rah" by Frankie Miller, "Fortune Teller" by Benny Spellman, "Freedom For The Stallion" by Bill Medley, "Whoever's Thrilling You" by ZZ Hill, "Tampin" by The Rhine Oaks, "A Certain Girl" by Warren Zevon, and even "Southern Nights" by Glen Campell.

New Tammi TerrellCome On & See Me – The Complete Solo Collection ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, 1960s. Used 2CDs .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing, simply amazing – the full story of Tammi Terrell's short-lived soul genius – presented here in a mix of Motown recordings, and a host of much more rare sides from the 60s! The collection is a cracker from start to finish – a much-needed full-length look at this singer who's probably best known for her duets with Marvin Gaye – but who well deserves all the attention of more famous female soul stars from her generation! And instead of the usual Motown-heavy material you might expect – the package begins with a whole host of cuts from the Wand/Scepter label – sides done under the name of Tammy Montgomery, issued as singles in the 60s – mixed with a few more from a record shared with Chuck Jackson, and a few more recorded with James Brown, plus a duet with singer Jimmy Radcliffe! Then, the set moves into the full recordings for Tammi's album Irresistible for Motown – plus rare non-LP singles – then moves into a huge section of rare Motown material never issued – and caps off with a set of tracks recorded live at Detroit's Roostertail in 1966! The 2CD collection features 50 tracks in all – and way more than a reissue, it's more of a discovery in music – given how much here you've probably never heard. The notes are as deep as the track selection – and titles include "If You See Bill", "If I Would Marry You", "This Time Tomorrow", "I Can't Hold It In Anymore", "I Wancha To Be Sure", "I Can't Believe You Love Me", "There Are Things (stereo)", "It's Been A Long Time Happenin", "When Love Comes Knocking At My Heart", "Memory Chest", "My Heart", "Tears At The End Of A Love Affair", "I Can't Believe You Love Me (live)", "Come On & See Me (live)", and a live medley of "What A Difference A Day Makes/Runnin Out Of Fools/Tell Me The Truth/Baby Love".

New 5th DimensionPortrait ... LP
Buddah, 1970. Used Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
A wonderful record by The 5th Dimension – hip, sophisticated, and one that shows that they had a depth that went beyond simple soul harmonies! The proof of this is the group's killer track "One Less Bell To Answer", one of the frankest songs about adult love and breakup to ever crack the charts in the 60s – but there's plenty of other gems, including "Puppet Man", "Feelin Alright", "A Love Like Ours", "Save The Country", "Dimension 5ive", and the extended medley of "The Declaration/Change Is Gonna Come/People Got To Be Free". Arrangements are by producer Bones Howe, with the team of Bob Alcivar and Bill Holman – both of whom helped to shape the group's sound nicely in the post-Jimmy Webb years. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small split on the top seam and a bit of light wear.)

Susan CarterWonderful Deeds & Adventures ... CD
Epic/Rev-Ola (UK), Late 60s. New Copy .... $6.99
A mixture of folksy and jazzy vocals from singer Susan Carter – part of the Laurel Canyon scene of the late 60s! Although Susan was one of the "Ladies Of The Canyon", she's got a sound here that's much more wider-ranging than that of Joni Mitchell – a unique mixture of jazz and rock influences that come across with a different sound on nearly every track on the set. The arranger for the album is Dick Halligan, who we've never heard of before – but who should get a lot of credit for the way that he mixes together odd phrasings and timings to match the shifting styles of Susan's vocals. Titles include "I'm So Tired", "I Need A Good Man Bad", "Medley For Billie Holiday", "Bluebird", and "Jam Session". CD

Don CherryArt Deco ... CD
A&M, 1989. Used .... $9.99
A late, straight side from Cherry, and a nice one at that! Cherry's joined by West Coast jazz men from his past James Clay, Charlie Haden And Billy Higgins, for a nice set with standards intermingled with the group's own tunes and a couple of Ornette numbers, too. The readings are crisp yet expansive, with these elder statesman delivering performances that betray the confidence they've built up over many years of playing. 10 tracks in all: "Art Deco", 'When Will The Blues Leave", "Body & Soul", "Bemsha Swing", "Maffy", "Folk Medley", "The Blessing", "Passing", "I've Grown Accustomed To Your Face" and "Compute".

New Grant GreenShades Of Green ... LP
Blue Note, 1972. Very Good .... $18.99
A stellar album from Grant Green – very different than most of his other work for Blue Note, and a sly electric groover recorded with vibist Billy Wooten! The sound here is a bit more spacious than some of Grant's earlier albums, yet no less funky – thanks to a hip undercurrent of soul in the drums, and arrangements from Wade Marcus that keep things fluid throughout. Wooten's vibes are wonderful, a ringing counterpoint to Green's great lines on guitar – and even the more familiar tunes on the record turn out to be really unique readings here – thanks to the arrangements and overall conception. Mellow moments are dripping with plenty of soul, and the funky ones are pretty great too – and titles include a killer medley of James Brown's "I Don't Want Nobody To Give Me Nothing" and "Cold Sweat", a heavy version of his instrumental groover "In The Middle", and a great original called "California Green" – plus "Never My Love", "Sunrise Sunset", "Got To Be There", and "If You Really Love Me".

CK Mann & His Carousel 7Funky Highlife (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Qua Msa/Mr Bongo (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy .... $15.99
A non-stop funky party from CK Mann – and a set that definitely lives up to its title! The album's got an unusual approach – in that the first side is presented as a single long track – billed as a "medley" number, but wrapped together in a way that still seems to preserve each individual moment of music within – a shifting array of styles that runs from highlife to funkier African rhythms! The cut is a massive fourteen minute number that's worth the price of admission alone – then rolls into some great shorter tracks on the second half – arranged by Ebo Taylor with the same hip criss-crossing of modes you'd find in his own 70s work. Titles include "Asafo Beesuon Medley", "Beebi A Odo Wo", "Yebeyi Wo Aye", and "Do Me Ma Mondo Wo Bi". CD features lots of bonus tracks, too – titles itnat include "Efi Na Matase", "Se Menya Wo A", "Fawakoma Ma Me", "Araba Lucy", and "Medzi Makoma Ma Wo". CD

New Jimmy RowlesJam Face ... CD
Choice (UK), 1978. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
Jimmy Rowles has always been one hell of a musician, but he really seemed to hit a special stretch in his work during the 70s – a time when he was able to balance his traditional roots with plenty of fresh ideas – all expressed perfectly here in a trio with Buster Williams on bass and Billy Hart on drums! Both players provide an excellent counterpoint to Jimmy's richly soulful lines on piano – and allow him to still hit that cool sense of tone that we love in other records, while also giving the album some more modern rhythmic impulses that really seem to inspire Rowles too. Jimmy sings a bit at times – in that raspy voice that's not unlike the modes used by Bob Dorough or Dave Frishberg – and titles include "Blood Count", "While We're Young", "Irene", "My Mother's Love", and a nice long medley of standards.

New Dizzy Gillespie, Lee Konitz, Dave Lambert, et al3/27/65 – Charlie Parker 10th Memorial Concert ... LP
Limelight, 1965. Used Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Way more than the simple Charlie Parker tribute promised in the title! For starters, the set's got two of the best cuts by Gillespie's mid 60s group with James Moody – "Um-Hmmm" and "Groovin High" – both of which have Moody playing in an incredibly unbridled tone that's just great! Next up are Coleman Hawkins and Roy Eldridge fronting a hip group with Billy Taylor on a long version of "Now's The Time". Taylor also makes an appearance on Dave Lambert's scatted vocal version of "Donna Lee", as well as on a large group medley of the tunes "Bird Watcher" and "Disorder At The Border". Finishing off the set is an amazing Lee Konitz solo version of "Blues For Bird", his own composition, played as a spare solo tune on alto! LP, Vinyl record album

New K Frimpong & His Cubano FiestasK Frimpong & His Cubano Fiestas ... CD
Continental, 1977. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
The great second album from Ghana's K. Frimpong – backed by the group Vis-a-Vis (though billed in the title as his Cubano Fiestas) – a stunning blend of Ghanian Highlife music and rawer Afro Funk & soul! A few K. Frimpong numbers appeared on some of our favorite African compilations of the late 90s & 00s – but this original album from 1977 has remained rare. K. Frimpong sings and he's backed up by the fairly large Vis-A-Vis players, but they deliver a pretty tight groove – drums, congas and other percussion, trumpet and sax, some really soulful electric guitar, some piano, and occasional waves of spacey synth. Amazing stuff! Includes "Hwehwe Mu Na Yi Wo Mpena", "Asaase Yi So", "Awisa" and the side-long "Adama Nana (Medley)". CD

New Dizzy GillespieMy Way ... LP
Solid State, 1969. Used Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
A weird batch of groovy tracks from Diz – more of a pop soul jazz instrumental set than a straight jazz one, recorded in 1969 with arrangements by Jimmy Mundy, who conducts a group with Paul Griffin, Billy Butler, and Jerome Richardson. As usual, Dizzy rises to any occasion – and brings out some great work for the album, grooving in a number of different modes as the moods of the tracks change with the backing colors of the band. Titles include a medley of "Aquarius" and "Let The Sun Shine In", plus "Exotica", "Besame Mucho", "Magic Tree", "This Girl's In Love With You", and "Galveston". Not all great – but with some really nice moments! LP, Vinyl record album

New Sonny StittJust In Case You Forgot How Bad He Really Was (32 Jazz pressing) ... CD
32 Jazz, 1981. Used .... Out Of Stock
A smoking little bop set from Sonny Stitt – recorded live at the Keystone in 1981, as sort of a "summit meeting" of horns – one that features Richie Cole and John Handy in the frontline with Sonny! The rhythm section alone is enough to cook this one up nicely – with Cedar Walton on piano, Herbie Lewis on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – and the sextet is expanded by Bobby Hutcherson, whose vibes seem to bring an even deeper level of soul to the set. But the main focus here is on the horns – and it's a focus that's well-kept, especially on the longer tunes, which really sparkle in the range of tone and mood expressed. Highlights include an extended "Ballad Medley" and versions of "Wee", "Lover Man", and "Star Eyes". (And by the way, that's "bad", as in "good" – in case you couldn't guess from the title!)
