Beats InternationalLet Them Eat Bingo ... CD
Elektra/Collectors Choice, 1990. Used ... $0.99
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".

King FamilyChristmas With The King Family (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Collectors Choice, 1965. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
Warm 60s television sounds from The King Family – that copious collection of singers that features the core King Sisters at the start, then expands to include their kids and most of their other relatives as well! These are the kind of tracks that really take us back to the kind of TV specials that used to warm our hearth during the Holiday season – the kind of unabashedly sentimental renderings of Christmas tunes both secular and spiritual, which always made us feel all warm and safe inside – set to full orchestrations that must have been something massive to pull off in the space of a television studio! As with other King Family albums, there's a nice variety to the vocals here – mixing full group numbers with smaller ones and some solo moments – on tracks that include "White Christmas", "Caroling Caroling/Come Dear Children", "Some Children See Him", "What Child Is This", "The Holiday Of Love", and "Hear The Sledges With The Bells". CD also features a huge amount of bonus tracks – many even groovier than the main album cuts – titles that include "Sleigh Ride", "Children Go Where I Send Thee", "The Christmas Song/The Christmas Waltz", "The Holiday Of Love", "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas", "A Soalin/God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen", and a medley of "Twas The Night Before Christmas/Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" – totally groovy, mod, and worth the price of the CD alone!

New Bootsy's Rubber BandThis Boot Is Made For Fonk-N ... CD
Warner/Collectors Choice, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Bootsy's still keeping the P-Funk flag flying high at the end of the 70s – arguably stepping out here with a sound that's got more of the Parliafunkadelicment elements intact than some of George Clinton's other spinoff groups! 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! Titles include "Jam Fan (Hot)", "Bootsy Get Live", "Under The Influence Of A Groove", "Chug-A-Lug", "Oh Boy", and "Shejam". Plus, the Collector's Choice folks have actually managed to reproduce all of the original comic book artwork from the original album booklet! CD

New Deon JacksonLove Makes The World Go Round ... CD
Atlantic/Collectors Choice, 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 Wilson PickettDon't Knock My Love ... CD
Atlantic/Collectors Choice, 1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
There's no knocking Wilson Pickett here – as his funky groove is still right on the money, set up in some sweet Muscle Shoals arrangements, at a level that's right up there with his first recordings for Atlantic Records! Production is by Brad Shapiro and Dave Crawford, who bring in a few slight 70s southern soul touches – but overall, the whole thing's got all the raw, heavy-grooving energy you'd expect from The Wicked Pickett on Atlantic. Some cuts slide into each other nicely – which makes for an album that's really unified – and Dennis Coffey plays some great guitar on the set, alongside keyboards from Crawford and Barry Beckett, drums from Roger Hawkins, and percussion from Jack Ashford. Titles include "Don't Knock My Love (parts 1 & 2)", "Fire & Water", "Call My Name I'll Be There", "Hot Love", "A Mighty Long Way", and "You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover". CD
