Hamiet BluiettNali Kola ... CD
Soul Note (Italy), 1989. New Copy ... $7.99 16.99
A real standout session from reedman Hamiet Bluiett – a record that's heavy on Afro-centric influences, with lots of heavy percussion at the bottom, and a rare jazz combo appearance for the time by trumpeter Hugh Masekela! There's kind of an earthy loft jazz sort of feel to the date – almost spontaneous creation, as Bluiett plays baritone sax and flute, and Masekela trumpet and flugelhorn, over percussion from Chief Bey, Titos Sompa, Seku Tonga, and Okeryema Asante – the last of whom we know from his record for the Black Fire label. Plunky plays soprano sax on one number – furthering the Black Fire connection – and other musicians include Donald Smith on piano and Billy Spaceman Patterson on guitar, each on one track. Quincy Troupe delivers some hip poetry on the cut "Snake Back Solos" – and other titles include "Bouka", "Enum", "Broken Sticks", and "Nali Kola". CD

Gene ChandlerTwo Sides Of Gene Chandler ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $21.99
A fantastic lost album by the great Gene Chandler – and one of his most sophisticated soul documents! The record was Gene's last album for Brunswick – issued shortly before Gene scored big once again on Mercury, which is why it's probably often lost in the shuffle of time. The record's got some incredibly dark material that shows a different side of Gene than you'd expect from earlier hits – including the incredible track "Suicide", which is a magnificent "Iceman" track in the Chicago tradition, that features the main character contemplating suicide as a means of dealing with his sorrow. Other titles include "If You Would Love Me", "The Sun Died", "This Bitter Earth", "Eleanor Rigby", and a remake of "Can I Change My Mind". CD

Michael Garrick (Garrick's Fairground)Mr Smith's Apocalypse/Epiphany ... CD
Argo/Vocalion (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the trippiest albums ever recorded by British pianist Michael Garrick – a set done with his Garrick's Fairground group – at a level that's almost a wilder abstraction of some of the other work he'd done at the end of the 60s! The album's an extended suite of shorter tracks – linked together thematically, and by the use of vocals from Norma Winstone, Betty Mulcahy, and others, plus a larger chorus – and with some even more compelling instrumental passages as well! The whole work almost feels like one of Mike Westbrook's more high-concept albums – especially given the use of vocals – and Garrick's own work on organ is augmented by Art Themen on saxes and flute, Henry Lowther on trumpet, Don Rendell on tenor and clarinet, Coleridge Goode on bass, and Trever Tomkins on percussion. Titles include "Blues", "Who Can Endure", "For We Are Lost", "I Have Torn Up", "Invocation", "The Waters Of Love", "To The Celebration", "What Is This Clamour", "I Will Speak I Will Say", and "Organ Improvisation. CD also features "Epiphany" and "Blessed Are The Peacemakers" – two smaller group tracks originally issued as a single, both with vocals by Norma Winstone, and both quite beautiful! CD

Chuck JacksonOn Tour (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Wand/Sundazed, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 21.99
Incredible mid 60s soul from Chuck Jackson – tearing it up live at The Apollo Theater! It's great set that has Jackson opening up with a range of more grooves than usual – picking up some jazzy touches on a few songs, moving into Motown on a few others, and returning to his original Iceman groove on the rest. The crowd noise is very up in the mix – bristling with more electricity than we might expect from Chuck – and he delivers a real knockout set! Titles include "Billie Baby", "Please Please Please", "Any Day Now", "Any Other Way", "Stubborn Kind Of Fellow", "Beg Me", and "Chuck's Soul Brothers Twist". LP, Vinyl record album

Chuck JacksonOn Tour/Dedicated To The King!! ... CD
Wand/Kent (UK), 1964/1967. Used ... $9.99
2 of Chuck Jackson's more unusual albums for Wand Records – back to back on one CD! On Tour is a great little live set that has Jackson opening up with a range of more grooves than usual – picking up some jazzy touches on a few songs, moving into Motown on a few others, and returning to his original Iceman groove on the rest. The crowd noise is very up in the mix – and from what we can tell, the album feels more live than the usual "canned" 60s set of this type, bristling with more electricity than we might expect from Chuck! Dedicated To The King is even more unusual – as "The King", in this case, is Elvis – which makes for a very strange album for Jackson! The album has Chuck dropping his Iceman style for a rougher, almost southern soul-styled approach – a mode that would show up more strongly on later albums, and which works surprisingly well with a set of Elvis tunes here! CD features 21 tracks in all – including live takes on "Billie Baby", "Any Other Way", "Stand By Me", "Please Please Please", "Beg Me", "I Don't Want To Cry", "Chuck's Soul Brothers Twist", and "I Wake UP Crying" – plus Elvis tunes "Hound Dog", "Don't Be Cruel", "Love Me Tender", "It's Now Or Never", and "I Forgot To Remember To Forget You".

Simon JonesMelanie & Me ... CD
Strawberry Rain, 1975. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
Really spare, laidback sounds from Simon Jones – material used in a mid 70s Australian film, but a record that's more than strong enough to stand on its own! Jones has this trippy style, but one with a bit of an edge, too – kind of a long-haired version of folk with fuzz, but recorded with some echo too – in a mode that almost feels more like it's from the generation of Spaceman 3 and Nikki Sudden than you'd guess from the time. The harmonics in the guitar are really wonderful – really get to the core of the songs' appeal right from the start – with a psychic focus that's undeniable, even given the looseness of the tunes. The set features both male and female vocals, but seems to offer more guitar more than anything else – and titles include "Welcome", "Goodbye", "Nine To Five", "You By Me", and "Relax". CD

Just-IceMasterpiece ... LP
Fresh, 1990. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A later set by Just Ice – produced by Grandmaster Flash – and record that sounds a lot better than we remembered! Tight, hard hitting dawn of the 90s beats from Flash and that gruff, tight rhyme delivery from Just-Ice. It might not be a masterpiece on par with Kool & Deadly, but it's plenty tough to our ears after all these years. Includes "Get Into Something", "The Iceman Cometh", "Slow, Low & Dope", "Rollin With The Just", and "I Write This In The Dark" with Angie B of The Sequence, known today as Angie Stone!

Erkin KorayElektronik Turkuler (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Turkofon/Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1974. New Copy Gatefold ... $25.99
A masterpiece of Turkish psychedelia – and quite possibly the greatest album ever from Turkish psychedelic maestro Erkin Koray – a mad blend of sounds that definitely lives up to its "elektronik" title! Most numbers feature a weird blend of electric guitar and baglama – used in a style that's similar to Koray's earlier Arabesk recordings, but in ways that are often more tripped out and free-thinking – almost in a groove that's similar to late 60s blends of Eastern influences and progressive rock in the US and Europe – but even wilder and weirder throughout! There's a bit of vocals on the set, but the instrumentation dominates – and titles include "Sir", "Karli Daglar", "Cemalim", "Inat", "Hele Yar", "Turku", and "Korkulu Ruya". LP, Vinyl record album

Sun RaSolar-Myth Approach Vol 1 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
BYG/Actuel, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $11.99
Very dark stuff from Sun Ra – one of his records that received wider circulation than most of the Saturn releases of the 70s, and a set that maintains a pretty sharp edge overall! Ra plays some killer keyboards – moog, spacemaster, and acoustic piano – often with these really eerie tones – and other players include Kwame Hadi on trumpet, Akh Tal Ebah on space dimension mellophone, Ali Hassan on trombone, Marshal Allen and Danny Davis on alto and flute, John Gilmore on tenor, and Pat Patrick on baritone – and the whole group vocalizes at points, joined by other singers who include June Tyson and Art Jenkins. Recorded at the Sun studios in New York in 1970, the album features a number of shorter tracks like "Spectrum", "The Satellites Are Spinning", "Seen III, Took 4", "Adventures Of Bugs Hunter", and the longer tracks "Legend" and "The Realm Of Lightning".

New Soul Cop (Oliver Christian)I Keep Coming Back For More/Tribute To Girls ... 7-inch
Norfolk International, Late 70s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
From the name, we're guessing that Oliver was a policeman by trade, and a soul singer in his spare time. The record's not that bad, actually, and "I Keep Coming Back" is a smooth modern soul number with a pretty nice hook. "Tribute To Girls" is a bit goofy, but kind of heartfelt, too. 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousIstanbul 70 – Psych, Disco, Folk Classics ... LP
Nublu, 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2LP ... $18.99 19.99
Turkish psych, funk, and disco – plus cross-pollinated grooves created from all of the above! If you don't know the Turkish scene of the 70s, there's plenty here to love – a really wicked combination of Western modes and local elements – styles that echo out in some of the classic arabesk rock of the scene, as well as some more unusual modes that are a great addition here. The full length set follows up on previous 12" singles from Nublu – but offers all original material from back in the day, with no edits or remixes at all – just killer classics that show why the Turkish scene of the time is well worth digging up! Titles include "Cemalim" by Erkin Koray, "Yaz Gazeteci" by Derdiyoklar, "Nem Alacak Felek Benim" by Cem Karaca, "Ikimiz Bir Fidaniz" by Kamuran Akkor, "Hal Hal" by Nazan Soray, "Derman Bulunmaz" by Ersen & Dadaslar, "Teselliye Sen Gerek" by Nazay Soray, and "Binboganin Kizi" by Baris Manco & Mogollar.

Dare Dare/Pulp Flavor (France), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $12.99
Rare grooves from the European scene – just the kind of sweet overseas goodies we've come to love from the La Guepe series! The record's filled with great little gems that never got issued on our side of the Atlantic in the 60s and 70s – a range of funky instrumentals, jazzy groovers, sound library tracks, and Brazilian bits – all brought together with a really great ear for the kind of styles that still sound wonderful all these many years later. Every cut's a gem – and titles include "If Only" by Gustav Brom, "Peacemaker" by Rosko, "Ketja Rock" by Eberhard Schoener, "Serenna E Lomunno" by Riz Ortolani, "Dark Orchid" by Jayme Marques, "Comin Home" by The Peddlers, "Serenna E Lomunno" by Riz Ortolani, "Free Stop" by Orchestre Tany Turens, "Skinny Dip" by New Visions, "Watch Out For The System" by Yared Orchestra, and "Cool Steel" by The Firebirds.

New Jerry ButlerJerry Butler, Esq/He Will Break Your Heart ... CD
Vee Jay/Collectables, 1959/1960. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Stellar soul from Jerry Butler! The CD contains two of Jerry's rarest albums ever – his first two for the Vee Jay label (and in fact, Jerry Butler Esq was issued on the related Abner label in 1959) – and both records are landmark examples of the "Iceman" style of soul music that was forged by Jerry, and copped by so many other artists during the 60s. The quality of the work is amazing, and the tracks are a perfect example of how Jerry was one of the first singers to bring the maturity formerly held by jazz-only singers into the newly shaped genre of soul music. You'll know a few hits on here, like "For Your Precious Love", "The Gift Of Love", "He Will Break Your Heart", and "Sweet Was The Wine" – but there's a lot more rare material by Jerry, including "If You Let Me", "The Challenge", "Chi Town", "Rainbow Valley", "You Go Right Through Me", "Give Me Your Love", "Have A Good Time", and "The Lights Went Out". 24 tracks in all.

New Garland GreenVery Best Of Garland Green – 24 Tracks From Chicago's Master Soul Singer's Illustrious Career ... CD
Kent (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A windy city hero – the amazing Garland Green, a singer who makes us mighty proud we hail from Chicago! Garland's got an incredible style that few others can touch – partly schooled in the 60s iceman modes of Jerry Butler and Walter Jackson, with all the sophistication that might imply – but also often given a raspier twist, with slightly southern echoes that make Garland's music feel even more deeply personal! And while most folks know Green's big hits for the Uni label, this package shows a rich legacy that goes much father than that – work recorded for labels that include Cotillion, Spring, RCA, Ocean Front, and Revue – in addition to some key Uni tracks. This trans-label set really does a wonderful job of showing the full range of Garland's mighty talents – a sublime set of soul cuts that run from the start of the 70s right up to the early 80s modern years – packaged with detailed notes too. Titles include "Since You've Been Gone", "These Arms", "Just Loving You", "Just My Way Of Loving You", "He Didn't Know", "Don't Think That I'm A Violent Guy", "Love's Calling", "Just What The Doctor Ordered", "Sweet Loving Woman", "Ask Me What You Want", "You Played On A Player", "Don't Let Love Walk Out On Us", and "Sending My Best Wishes".

New Chuck JacksonChuck Jackson Arrives ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Chuck arrives at the Motown label – and already finds a fresh new sound that's different from his earlier years at Wand Records! Chuck only worked with Motown for a few short years, but his time at the label marked a big shift in his work – a move away from the more staid "Iceman" soul of the Wand recordings, and into a sound that was deeper, more expressive, and nicely mature as well. There's a growing southern soul sensibility to many of these tracks – as Chuck seems to be taking a cue from some of the better singers of the late 60s, and deepening his sound with influences brought north from Memphis and Muscle Shoals. The core sound's still prime Motown, though – with top-shelf arrangements and productions – and in a way, these recordings mark the link between Memphis and Detroit that would be explored a lot more heavily in key 70s recordings by Don Davis and other producers who skirted between the two cities' scenes. Titles include "Lonely Lonely Man Am I", "To See The Sun Again", "Ain't No Sun Since You've Been Gone", "I Can't Go On Sharing Your Love", and "Where You Gonna Run To Now". CD

A wonderful lost tune from the great Chuck Jackson – served up here with a darkly stepping groove that's somewhere in the best Drifters territory from the early 60s – but topped with Chuck's great iceman vocals! Maxine Brown belts it out on "Torture" – a tune that's definitely at the more upbeat side of her range, and done with a style that's almost more Detroit than her usual sound! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Moacir SantosMaestro ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing 70s work from Moacir Santos – the first album the Brazilian arranger recorded for Blue Note, and a set that sparkles with warmth and soul from the very first note! The approach is a brilliant updating of the famous sound that Santos crafted in Brazil the decade before – recast here with some warmer elements that includes great organ from Clare Fischer, electric piano from Bill Henderson, trombone from Frank Rosolino, and flute and tenor from Don Menza! Santos sings on a number of tracks, but in this cool angular way that's often right in line with the instrumentation – almost submerged a bit in the mix, as an element that gives the record a strong degree of warmth. The album's unlike any other we can think of – even a bit different than Santos' two other albums for Blue Note – and has a wonderful fusion of influences that never fails to delight our ears over the years! Titles include his version of "Nana", which was performed often by others – plus "Luanne", "Bluishmen", "Kermis", "Mother Iracema", and "Astral Whine". CD

Kent (UK), 1961/1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful heartbreaking soul in the "iceman" style that was pioneered by Jerry Butler, and taken up by Chuck in these first two albums of stellar east coast uptown soul. Both of the the title tracks are hits you might know, but there's also 22 other tracks of good stuff like "Salty Tears", "A Man Ain't Supposed to Cry", "In Between Tears" (we wonder if Chuck wasn't just a big cry baby!), "Angel of Angels", "The Breaking Point", and "Who's Gonna Pick Up the Pieces". With the original covers, and a faithful reproduction of the two LPs, totally intact! CD

The songwriting and vocals are all credited to group guitarist/leader Don Brewer – but there are some really strong harmonies throughout the tunes – which often have a fuzzy, rollicking edge to them without losing sight of the sunny groove! Tracks include "Epistle To Paradise", "Shadows Of Your Mind", "Art's A Happy Man", "Bridge Under A Sky", the epic centerpiece "You Don't Care", "Face Behind The Sun", "Dainty General Rides" and "Civilization Machine".
