New JaylibChampion Sound ... LP
Stones Throw, 2003. New Copy 2LP ... $15.99
Damn! The MASSIVE collaborative album from the dynamic duo of Madlib and J Dilla! Essentially, Madlib handles the production on the even numbers in the set with Dilla on the vocals, and the roles are reversed on the odd numbers. Each producer does his own thing, as only he can do it – Madlib brings the funky sampler genius – and Dilla rocks the thumping Detroit hip hop soul crunch. A number of guest rhymers step to the mic, including Talib Kweli, Percee P, Frank-N-Dank & Guilty Simpson, and the flow is seamless. Not only was this one of the best hip hop albums of '03, it also has a dyed-in-the-wool classic production style, and it sounds just as great a few years later! So very highly recommended! Tracks include "L.A. To Detroit", "McNasty Filth" with Frank-n-Dank, "Nowadayz", "Champion Sound", "The Red", "Heavy", "Raw S*!t" with Kweli, "The Official", "The Heist", "The Mission", "React" with Quasimodo, "The Exclusive" with Percee P, "Survival Test", "Starz" and "No Games".

New John ColtraneHeavyweight Champion – Complete Atlantic Recordings (7CD set) ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, Early 60s. Used 7CDs & Book ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing set of work by John Coltrane – some of his best recordings ever, tracks that form a pivotal point between his later 50s work with Miles Davis and his mid 60s spiritual searching years. The set's unbelievably exhaustive – and includes every track that was ever issued by Coltrane on an Atlantic album, plus some great alternate takes, plus a 72 page hardbound book of photos and writings, plus a whole CD of rare material that was never issued before! (The folks at Atlantic say that they would have loved to make an even bigger set – but after a fire in their warehouse in the 70s, this one CD of tapes is all that ever remained!) The whole package is incredibly well put together – in a small discrete box with some great fold-out CD cases, and a wonderful mechanism for storage that's as great as the music in the set. Titles include "Syeeda's Song Flute", "Ole", "My Favorite Things", "Cousin Mary", "Giant Steps", "Mr Day", "Blues To Elvin", "Satellite", "Liberia", "Dahomey Dance", and sooooo much more! CD
(In great shape with the original slipcase!)

New Willie Mitchell/Bill Black's ComboChampion (part 1)/Little Queenie ... 7-inch
Hi Records/Outta Sight (UK), 1964/1966. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Two early Hi Records gems – back to back on a single 45! "Champion" is a real stormer from Willie Mitchell – cut during the raw years of his instrumental sides – with a wicked tenor honking along with some great Hammond in the groove – plus lots of cool twangy guitar! "Little Queenie" has more great guitar and tenor too – and is definitely a tune that's on the hippest side of the Bill Black spectrum! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Cola & Jimmu (Nicole Willis & Jimi Tenor)I Give To You My Love & Devotion ... CD
Herakles (Finland), 2014. New Copy ... $16.99
Jimi Tenor is a man of many talents – able to work in modes from spacey to jazzy to funky, and everything in between – as is singer Nicole Willis, who most folks know from her deep funk recordings, but who reemerges here as a house vocalist in the team of Cola & Jimmu! The look of the cover really sums up the sound of the record – a great old school vibe that reflects the best underground club releases of the late 80s – especially that deeper-than-deep house scene that never even came close to the mainstream! There's lots of spiritual elements in the lyrics – similar to the vibe of Jimi's recent Kabu Kabu records – but Nicole's delivery is very different, often parsed in short lyrical bursts amidst the keyboards and grooves. Titles include "Immortal Champion", "Earthly Delights", "Open Up Your Chakra", "Fantabulous", "Meet You At The Crossroads", and "No More Wars". CD

Micky MilanC'Est Une Bombe (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Milan/Boogie Times (France), 1982. Used ... $1.99
A bomb of a record from Micky Milan – early 80s grooves from the French scene, but with all the electro beats and keys you might expect from an underground US record of the time! Although Micky's got a visual approach that almost has him reaching for the charts, there's a nicely understated feel to this whole record – tight, but never too commercial – and more the sort of bumping grooves you'd find hitting the floors up north in the Canadian scene – kind of an unassuming groove that still keeps this one strong over the years. Titles include "C'Est Une Bomb Cette Super Fille La", "Attention Les Nanas", "Tu M'As Use", and "C'Est Pas La Peine". Bonus cuts include "Les Ailes Du Reve", "Quando Tu Dancas", "Champion (rmx)", and "Les Vacances On S'Eclate On S'Evade". CD

VariousDouble Cookin – Classic Northern Soul Instrumentals ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Dancefloor cookers from the prime Northern Soul years – all instrumental numbers on this sharp compilation on Kent – 45 sides from a labels like Money, Villa, Swan, King, Epic and Warner Brothers! For all the wonderful Kent soul compilations we've gotten our dusty fingers on over the years, it's a wonder they're never been one devoted to instrumentals – until now! Rhythms roll along at a tight tempo, the tight guitars punch it up, some strings soar, and a pounding Northern beat keeps it all stomping! Those core elements are key, but others weave in an out, from hand claps on the beat, to organ grooves, bursts of brass and more. 24 tracks in all: "Double Cookin" by Checkerboard Squares, "Make Me Yours" by Arthur Wright & His Orchestra, "Festival Time" by San Remo Golden Strings", "The Sounds Of Lane" by Tracks To Your Mind, "Champion Pt 1" by Willie Mitchell, "The Guys From Uncle" by The Spy, "Stirrin Up Some Soul" by The Mar-Ketts, "Hey America (Sing Along)" by James Brown, "California Montage" by Young-Holt Unlimited and more.

Seminal Dee Jay numbers from one of the men who's help usher in the Dancehall era in Jamaican music. Nkrumah Thomas's tracks are steeped in the roots tradition, but were looking ahead to the newer sounds rocking the Island as the musical climate changed, ad this classic album showcases the man at the top of his game, both on the mic and as producer. 10 champion tracks in all, including "Mister Walker", "Dance On The Corner", "General 007", "Trackas-Trackas", "Natty Dread The Traveller", "Cricket Lovely Cricket", "Best Dress", "Bad Man Entry" and "Marijuana-Marijuana".

New VariousStill Groove Jumping – 16 Classic Rockin R&B Tracks From RCA's Groove Label ... CD
RCA/Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A cool collection of work from RCA's great Groove subsidiary in the 50s – home to some excellent R&B singles that were a far cry from the label's mainstream pop of the time! These cuts easily stand head to head with anything on labels like Atlantic or King at the time – and the collection unearths a whole host of tracks we'd never heard before – some rough and blusey, some with a tighter edge that's definitely at the best level of the pre-soul generation! The bluesy numbers are especially great – recorded at a level you'd never expect from RCA, at least not since the 30s – and often have these raw guitar lines that ring out like something you might hear from the Chess studios at the time. The set features great notes, with session details on the tracks – and titles include "High Low Jack" by Buddy Lucas, "Down To The Bottom" and "You Better Heed My Warning" by Larry Dale, "All My Life" by Roy Guitar Gaines, "Peek A Boo" by Mr Bear, "Rockin With Red" by Piano Red, "Drink Up" by The Du Droppers, "Country Boy" by Tiny Kennedy, "She's Got No Hair" by Arthur Crudup, and "When I Got Married" by Champion Jack Dupree.

New Kanye WestGraduation ... CD
Def Jam, 2007. Used ... Out Of Stock
Kanye's tightest, most heavily synth soaked set yet – and possibly the best – a leap ahead for his evolving sound! Graduation gleams and shines more than it bounces on the bottom end, and if his LP titles to date overtly suggest that this caps off a trilogy – it really goes beyond the title – it's POST Graduation! By the end of Late Registration Kanye was dabbling in hip hop symphonies (for the better) with a few too many skits, but this one's all laser beam efficiency with a human heartbeat. Kanye's moved on, well past our expectations anyway, and he better not call the next one Class Reunion. A bunch of these cuts could rule several radio formats, and they sound great in the headphones, too. To tell the truth, any modern hip hop record with a big fat (and surely expensive) Steely Dan sample is going get an automatic recommendation from us, but Graduation works for us for many more reasons than that alone. Well done, Kanye! "Good Morning", "Champion", the Daft Punk-ed hit "Stronger", "I Wonder", "Good Life", "Can't Tell Me Me Nothing", "Barry Bonds" with Lil Wayne, "Drunk And Hot Girls" with Mos Def, "Flashing Lights" with Dwele, "Everything I Am" with DJ Premier, "Homecoming" and "Big Brother".

New Iggy PopIdiot (180 gram pressing) ... LP
RCA/4 Men With Beards, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Iggy's second solo LP proper, and a strange morass of junkie desperation and gutteral white punk funk – a conscious decision to move away from the guitar roar of the Stooges era and closer to the sounds his longtime champion David Bowie was experimenting with at the time, with a little bit of Lou Reed for good measure – but make no mistakes, this is Iggy's show. It's as fascinating as it is impressive on a more visceral level, heavy bass rhythms and keys intergral to the sound, and weary latenight storytelling that trips you out on contact. All tunes co-written by Bowie, who would go on to make a lot of money off "China Girl" a few years into the 80s when the world was more ready for it, plus the classic "Nightclubbing", "Sister Midnight", "Baby", "Dum, Dum Boys", "Tiny Girls" and "Mass Production".

New VariousRed Robin R&B Story ... CD
Red Robin/Fuel 2000, 1950s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Heady sounds from one of Harlem's hippest indie labels of the 50s – the Red Robin imprint, home to a rich array of blues, R&B, and vocal group numbers! The company had a relatively small roster, but really helped its artists find the right sort of groove – in some cases to flourish at a level they'd never done before, in others to get a great start before moving onto bigger fame elsewhere – but still always at a level that had them giving their best! This 2CD package features three dozen numbers from the 78rpm era – the kind of heavy platters that kept Harlem moving in the years between swing and soul – on cuts that include "Hard Rock" and "The Hammer" by Red Prysock, "Shake Baby Shake" and "Drunk Again" by Champion Jack Dupree, "Juicy Fruit" by Tiny Grimes, "Can't Do Sixty No More" and "Go Back" by The Du Droppers, "Daisy" and "Don't Dog Your Woman" by Brownie McGhee, "Doggin My Heart Around" by Sonny Terry, "Earthquake" by Charlie Singleton, "Bobby's Boogie" by Morris Lane, "The Man I Crave" by Sadie Birch, "I've Got A Feeling" and "Tippin" by The Topps, and "You Didn't Give Me A Chance" by Sandra Grimes.

Joni HaastrupWake Up Your Mind ... LP
Hot Casa (France), 1978. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99
Funky funky solo work from Joni Haastrup – an artist who's also known for his work in Monomono, and who sounds equally great on his own! Joni's got this tight approach that wraps together Nigerian grooves of the 70s scene, and some bolder soul star energy that would be right at home in the US – a kind of powerhouse approach that really sends these tunes home beautifully! The lyrics are in English, which really helps broaden the appeal of the cuts – and the production has these cool compressed elements that are partly like the more psych-inspired modes of other Afro Funk groups, and partly those of the UK soul scene of the 70s. We've never heard a record exactly like this, and the whole thing's a truly memorable treasure from this key moment in African music. Cuts include "Watch Out", "Do The Funkro", "Greetings", "Free My People", "Wake Up Your Mind", and "Champions & Superstars". LP, Vinyl record album

Luv N' Haight, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99 22.98
Incredible material from the formative years of Cali soul great Mike James Kirkland – singles and previously unreleased tracks that he recorded with his group Mike & The Censations in the years leading up to his underground soul classic LPs Hang In There and Doin It Right! Mike & The Censations were often lumped in with doo wop groups in their day, given Mike's roots in doo wop and gospel – but what you'll actually hear here is a range of soulful styles that dabbles in nascent 70s group soul and a little bit of funk – with charismatic vocals from Mike and perfect group backup vocals by the Censations (spelled with a C-, so they wouldn't be confused with the Philly Sensations). A stunner from our friends at Luv & Haight/Ubiquity – still the greatest champions of the work of Mr. Kirkland! Disc 1 is The Complete Story Of Mike & The Censations: "Victim Of Circumstance" (Pts 1 & 2), "Don't Mess With Me", "There's Nothing I Can Do About It", "Be Mine Forever", "Don’t Sell Your Soul", "Shopping For Love", "A Man Ain't Nothing But A Man", "I Need Your Lovin", "Baby What Are You Going To Do", "Split Personality" and more.

Van Dyke ParksClang Of The Yankee Reaper ... CD
Edsel (UK), 1975. Used ... $8.99
The last of Van Dyke Parks' classic early trio of albums for Warner Brothers – and possibly the straightest of the bunch! Parks continues the exploration of ersatz Americana explored on his previous two records – but his approach here is sometimes a bit gentler, almost sentimental at times – as if he's been pulled more strongly into the matrix of history and geography that's always informed his work. Production is still great – although not handled by Van Dyke this time around – and instrumentation includes a fair bit of steel drums, showing Parks' continuing love of the form. (He was one of the instrument's biggest mainstream champions in the early 70s.) Titles include "Soul Train", "Cannon In D", "You're A Real Sweetheart", "Another Dream", "Pass That Stage", "City On The Hill", "Iron Man", and "Love Is The Answer". CD

Secret Stash, 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
Rare soul from Minneapolis – a surprisingly great source for grooves in the years before Prince and Morris Day! Turns out, the Twin Cities were already funky, way before the Purple One came into being – as you'll hear in this wealth of rare singles from the late 60s on up through the 70s – all of them mighty darn soulful, and most of them pretty dang funky as well! The wealth of work is really surprisingly – with strong echoes of styles going on in the Chicago and Detroit scenes at the time, but maybe even more surprising, given that Minneapolis/St Paul didn't have nearly the same amount of resources. The package is easily one of the best ever done by the Secret Stash label – a set that really ups the level of their reissues – with a motherlode of killer cuts that include "Love Me Leave Me" by The Valdons, "Sweet Smell Of Perfume" by Maurice McKinnies & The Champions, "Work Your Flapper (part 1)" by Jackie Harris & The Champions, "She's A Whole Lot's A Woman" by Mojo & His Chi 4, "I Ain't Gonna Cheat On You No More" by Willie Walker, "Save Me" by Wanda Davis, "Saxophone Disco" by Morris Wilson, "Honey From The Bee" by Willie & The Bumblebees, "The Max" by Prophets Of Peace, "Get Up" by The Lewis Connection, and "Rusty McDusty" by Morris Wilson.

New BreakwaterSplashdown ... LP
Arista, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
No splashdown here – as Breakwater are every bit as soaringly soulful as they were on their debut set! The groove here is that perfect blend of jazz and soul that only a few groups in the 70s really got right – maybe Pleasure, or The Blackbyrds – and most certainly Breakwater, who were one of the reigning champions of the scene! Rhythms are often upbeat, but not in a disco or club-oriented way – and the instrumentation is tight, but never slick or smooth – always nicely funky with a nice little crackle, even on the mellow cuts – in a way that's opened up this album to new audiences for many years. This set's got a nice bit of moog that wasn't on the group's first – used almost in Mizell-like to further enhance the sound – and titles include the classics "Say You Love Me Girl", "Let Love In", "Time", and "The One In My Dreams". Great stuff, and with a really beautiful vibe! LP, Vinyl record album

New CommonPeople (radio, LP, inst)/Game (radio, LP, inst) ... 12-inch
Geffen, 2007. Used ... Out Of Stock
The first single from Common's top shelf Finding Forever LP – a classy full length that marks back-to-back solid efforts for Com, given this equally solid follow up to his perceived "comeback" BE of 2005! The forthright "People" brings out the best in Kanye West's production. As for Common, he repeats strong verses like mantras, with thick, bottom heavy beats, and a jazz funk sample backdrop. "Game" is the walloping DJ Premier style combat track – with beats by Kanye and scratches by Primo himself. We're always champions of our Chi heroes – but Common's best tracks are transcendent – and we just can't praise those enough. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo in a stickered sleeve.)

New Sonny StittTune-Up! ... LP
Cobblestone, 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
By this point in his career, Sonny hardly needed a tune up in his style – but the album's a great one from his post-Prestige years, and a real back-to-basics effort that recalls the genius of his work on Roost! The format is straight and simple – Stitt's tenor and alto fronting a quartet that includes Barry Harris, Sam Jones, and Alan Dawson – all playing in a way that puts Sonny in command on all tracks, blowing with an amazing tone that makes us want to throw away all his funk, organ, and electric outings, and just concentrate on these straight acoustic sides. Stitt has a way of blowing the reed like he's got his whole mouth moving into the sax – an earthy, human, and personal feel that first came out strongly in his work during the late 50s, but which has grown even more by this point – even if you couldn't hear the development on other sets. And given our love of funk and electric sides, we're honestly surprised we find ourselves championing a record like this from the early 70s – but it's a great one, and not to be missed if you remotely dig Stitt! Titles include "Tune Up", "Idaho", "Just Friends", "Groovin High", and "Blues For Prez & Bird". LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousTwin Cities Funk & Soul – Lost R&B Grooves From Minneapolis/St Paul 1964 to 1979 (with download) ... LP
Secret Stash, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Rare soul from Minneapolis – a surprisingly great source for grooves in the years before Prince and Morris Day! Turns out, the Twin Cities were already funky, way before the Purple One came into being – as you'll hear in this wealth of rare singles from the late 60s on up through the 70s – all of them mighty darn soulful, and most of them pretty dang funky as well! The wealth of work is really surprisingly – with strong echoes of styles going on in the Chicago and Detroit scenes at the time, but maybe even more surprising, given that Minneapolis/St Paul didn't have nearly the same amount of resources. The package is easily one of the best ever done by the Secret Stash label – a set that really ups the level of their reissues – with a motherlode of killer cuts that include "Love Me Leave Me" by The Valdons, "Sweet Smell Of Perfume" by Maurice McKinnies & The Champions, "Work Your Flapper (part 1)" by Jackie Harris & The Champions, "She's A Whole Lot's A Woman" by Mojo & His Chi 4, "I Ain't Gonna Cheat On You No More" by Willie Walker, "Save Me" by Wanda Davis, "Saxophone Disco" by Morris Wilson, "Honey From The Bee" by Willie & The Bumblebees, "The Max" by Prophets Of Peace, "Get Up" by The Lewis Connection, and "Rusty McDusty" by Morris Wilson. LP, Vinyl record album
