Beats InternationalLet Them Eat Bingo ... CD
Elektra/Collectors Choice, 1990. Used ... $2.99
A big one for Norman Cook – caught here in his post-Housemartins, pre-Fatboy Slim years – working here in a playful blend of beats and samples that really point the way towards his later chart fame to come! The tracks here have a simple elegance that might have sounded dated a few years after release, but which is now finally beginning to win us over again – a really basic use of musical elements to construct a beat-heavy tune – one that's decidedly poppy, given all the hooks and vocals in the album, but which is also kind of refreshing to hear these days, considering all the wrong directions such efforts took in later years! The straightforward Cook remix approach is in full effect here – with one key idea hung on each tune – but it's also an approach that works well when not to much is expected of it, as you'll hear on tracks that include "Dance To The Drummer's Beat", "Dub Be Good To Me", "Burundi Blues", "Blame It On The Bassline", "Tribute To King Tubby", and "Babies Makin Babies".

Deon JacksonLove Makes The World Go Round ... CD
Atlantic/Collectors Choice, 1966. New Copy ... $5.99 11.98
Great stuff from one of our favorite soul vocalists of the 60s! We love Deon Jackson – we love his sweetly honest vocal style, we love his songs, and we love the great production he gets from the legendary Ollie McLaughlin! This album is the only one he ever cut – and it's a masterpiece all the way through! Ollie's production mixes some wonderful lilting qualities with rollicking hard soul – it's a far-reaching approach that works incredibly well with Deon's unique approach to the vocals! Includes the super-hit "Love Makes The World Go Round" and a charming uptown soul take on "King Of The Road", plus "Come Back Home", "1-2-3", "You Said You Love Me", "SOS", "Love Is What You Make It" and "Hush Little Baby".

New Shel SilversteinFreakin At The Freakers Ball (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Collectors Choice, 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the trippiest albums ever recorded by creative wordsmith Shel Silverstein – an amazing talent who's known for his famous work with Playboy, his poetry for kids, and even his contributions to country music! This set's got a wild style that definitely lives up to the Freakers Ball promised in the title – kind of a hippie happening that feels like it's recorded live in the studio, with Shel almost making up the words as he goes along – yet also grooving with a style that's tighter than ever, and which has some surprising undercurrents of funk at times. Given the playful themes of the tunes, the record's not far off from a Schoolhouse Rock feel at points – although the overall content is far more adult! Titles include "Liberated Lady 1999", "The Peace Proposal", "Stacy Brown Got Too", "Polly In A Porny", "I Got Stoned & I Missed It", and "Freakin At The Freakers Ball". CD

New BloodstoneDo You Wanna Do A Thing? ... CD
London/Collectors Choice, 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Bloodstone moving into a whole new thing – a funkier groove than before, and one that really points the way towards the group's clubby direction at the end of the 70s! Although best known as a sweet harmony group, Bloodstone shine equally well in this upbeat mode – a territory that's somewhere in a space between the funky Isleys of the 70s, and some of the more soaring, sweeping Philly grooves of The Spinners! A few fragile, mellow moments come into the mix – which helps balance out the sound – and the group get some great east coast soul treatment from arranger Bert DeCoteaux, who co-produced the album with Tony Silvester. Titles include a great version of "Just Like in the Movies", the Ace Spectrum classic – plus the tracks "This is It", "When We're Doin It", "Do You Wanna Do a Thing", "If You Wanna Be My Baby", and "Give Me Your Heart".
