Sweet CreamSweet Cream & Other Delights ... LP
Shadybrook, 1978. Near Mint- .... $4.99
This one's probably best known for the cover – a disco parody of the famous Herb Albert Sweet Cream cover, one that shows an African American model covered in whipped cream like the one on the more famous A&M record jacket. Sweet Cream themselves are a hip girl trio from Detroit, featuring Gloria, Gracie, and Esther Ridgeway – who later operated under that last name as The Ridgeways on a more famous record with Gene Dozier on Capitol. And despite the fact that this one looks like a throwaway disco album, it's actually got a funky sound that's not that different from their later modern soul grooves with Dozier – a bit disco in parts, but also with a bit of a jazz fusion finish that keeps things real, and pretty interesting instrumentally. Some tracks are well-done mellow cuts, and titles include "Skunk Funk", "We're Not Gonna Make It", "You Brought Joy", and "Pretty Little Black Boy". LP, Vinyl record album

Classic! The third LP from the Time, and last before Morris Day went off and started his solo career – though by this point Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis had departed the group. Nonetheless, the sound is still tight modern funk, with Jesse Johnson and crew keeping things in the great post-Prince Minneapolis pop-funk sound, including some nice dance numbers like "Jungle Love" and "The Bird" – and Morris just being Morris on cuts like "My Drawers", "Chili Sauce" and "If The Kid Can't Make You Come".

Cotillion, Early 70s. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two early tracks by the Dynamics – both recorded in Memphis with Tommy Cogbill! "Love That I Need" is kind of a bouncing, building number – harmonies soaring up farther than the harder Memphis backings, making for a really nice contrast that gives the tune an edge. "Ice Cream Song" is a remake of the Ronnie Shannon song, done in a style that's a bit more down-homey. 7-inch, Vinyl record

New VariousCream Of Crossover Vol 1 ... CD
Soul Kitchen (Belgium), 1970s. Used .... Out Of Stock
A great selection of tunes – from a genre you might not know! In the parlance of UK soul fans, "crossover" refers to older soul tracks that have a sound that pushes past the standard style of the Northern soul groove – to include cuts that move into mellow 70s soul, sweet harmony tracks, and even a few numbers with some nice funky undertones. The result is a sound that we can wholeheartedly endorse – filled in influences from our favorite sides of the east coast and Chicago scenes of the early 70s, summed up perfectly in this set of 25 tracks that includes "Still A Part Of Me" by The Minits, "I'm Not Responsible" by Alex Brown, "The Best Girl I Ever Had" by Gene Dozier, "To Get Your Love" by Soulful Illusion, "The Look On Your Face" by James Phelps, "Trying To Get To You" by Imperial Wonders, "Echoes From The Past" by Hot Sauce, "I Just Love You" by Belita Woods, "It's A New Day" by The Sensations, and "This Life's About To Get Me Down" by Weapons Of Peace.

Motown/Culture Factory (France), 1969. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Cream Of The Crop may not have been a huge hit for The Supremes, but the record has them handling a variety of interesting work – mostly done in modes that bring the best Motown styles of the 60s into closer contact with the label's more expansive sound to come in the 70s! There's a really nice balance here, handled by a cream of the crop set of arrangers that includes Wade Marcus, David Van DePitte, and Paul Riser – on titles that include "Someday We'll Be Together", "You Gave Me Love", "Can't You See It's Me", "Young Folks", "The Beginning Of The End", "Till Johnny Comes", and "Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever".

Al GreenTokyo Live ... CD
Cream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. Used .... $18.99
A tasty double-live set from Al Green – one that has him working through longer versions of tunes than you'd hear on his studio albums, and really doing great in front of an appreciative Japanese crowd! The overall approach here is a bit more modern than on some of his older Hi albums – as the band uses the extra space to make things a bit more uptempo and really push the groove – but Al's vocals still hold the whole set together nicely, especially on the numbers where he lets loose a bit more. Linda Jones is one of the backup singers on the set – and titles include "Belle", "Let's Get Married", "Love & Happiness", "I Feel Good", "Dream", "God Blessed Our Love", "You Ought To Be With Me", and "Tired Of Being Alone".

Brenton WoodCome Softly ... LP
Cream/Hi Records, 1977. Near Mint- .... $7.99
After starting his career as a jaunty northern soul groover, with tracks like "Oogum Boogum Song" (not on this set), Brenton re-emerged during the 70s as kind of a smoother groover, with a sound that was a lot more sophisticated than the old days, and which showed Brenton to be a singer capable of hitting a more adult soul market. This album for the Cream label is the most lasting legacy of this part of Brenton's career – and features the tracks "Rock You To Your Socks", "In For The Night", "I Couldn't Stop Loving You", "Just Like The First Time", and "Come Softly To Me".

OV WrightWe're Still Together ... LP
Hi Records/Cream, 1979. Sealed .... $9.99
OV Wright's getting a bit smooth, but still sounding great – working here with really full backings from Willie Mitchell, at a level that's a bit more upbeat than his previous album at Hi Records! There's a bit more of a groove on these tunes, but most are still miles from the dancefloor – still in that time-tested OV Wright style, with echoes of earlier Memphis eras in the background, but a tighter, more mature approach upfront. Given the date of the record, the overall sound is surprising – more mid 70s Hi Records than anything else – but that's also the charm of the set, and proof that Hi could still hold strong when other labels were moving forward, perhaps a bit too quickly. Titles include "Mirror Of My Soul", "I'm Gonna Stay", "It's Cold Without Your Love", "We're Still Together", and "I Found Peace". LP, Vinyl record album

New Swamp DoggCuffed, Collared & Tagged (with download) ... LP
Cream/Fat Possum, 1972. New Copy (reissue).... Out Of Stock
An unusual session recorded by Swamp Dogg for Hi Records at the start of the 70s – a bit more polished and less full-on nasty than some of the usual Dogg grooves from the 70s, but still with plenty of that heavy Jerry Williams groove at the bottom! The album's got a nice tightness that we really love – with all original material, save for some great covers of John Prine's "Sam Stone" and The Beatles' "Lady Madonna" – both of which showcase Swamp Dogg's key appeal to the crossover crowd of the time. But it's the original tracks that we really love, especially those numbers that lay back and get a bit more personal – showcasing a side of Williams' persona that's not as caught up in Swamp Dogg's posturing. Titles include "Sam Stone", "Complication No 5", "If It Hadn't Been For Sly", "In My Resume", "Captain Of Your Ship", and "Your Last Dirty Trick". LP, Vinyl record album

Ginger Baker's Air ForceGinger Baker's Air Force ... CD
Atco/Lemon (UK), 1970. New Copy .... $13.99
Out of the wreckage of Cream came some very hip grooves! Ginger Baker was the hippest of the group's 3 members – and although he's often credited by soul fans for his work with Fela, he should also get a hats off for his work with the group Air Force – essentially a 10-piece (which seems to have been expanded beyond even that number for this set) that came up with some of the most monstrous art funk jamming we've heard! At its base, the group's in the jazz rock mode – with players that include Brit jazz luminaries Phil Seamen, Harold McNair, and Graham Bond, plus rockers like Baker, Steve Winwood, Denny Laine, and Rick Grech. The tracks are all long groovers in a post-beat group mode – and the best tracks have a jamming sound that's pretty over the top! It's full of the propulsive, Afro-influenced bass and percussion, some wild, jazz funk flute and sax, plus amazing work on violin, guitar and occasional, ephemeral vocals. Awesome stuff – one of the best and most innovative live albums of the era! Titles include "Da Da Man", "Aiko Biaye", "Do What You Like", "Doin It", and "Don't Care". It's about time this thing arrived on CD! CD

Brotherhood/Friend SoundComplete Recordings (Brotherhood 1968 /Brotherhood 1969/Joyride) ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1968/1969. New Copy 2 CDs .... $19.99 21.98
A trio of great late 60s RCA albums on a single set – the first two from The Brotherhood, and one more from the related Friend Sound! First up is the first album ever from The Brotherhood – an offshoot of Paul Revere & The Raiders, filled with some of that group's greatest early players! The core of the group features Drake Levin on guitar, Phil Volk on bass, and Mike Smith on drums – romping with the kind of raw, party-styled energy they brought to their work with their previous group – but at a level here that's way more heady, and definitely shows a stronger influence from psych! Tunes are still plenty catchy, but have some weird undercurrents too – in a cool Sunshine Pop sort of style – and the range of instrumentation is nicely fresh, and even a bit richer than usual for this sort of record. Titles include "Somebody", "Pastel Blue", "Close The Door", "Seasons", "Love For Free", "Lady Faire", and "Ice Cream". 1969's The Brotherhood is an even tighter set than the first album from the group – and one that has the group really finding a way to tap into their older garagey roots, while still keeping plenty of fuzz and psych intact! The drums are great – that powerful punch that Mike Smitty Smith always brought to his earlier pop work – but the themes are moodier, and the guitar nicely trippy, while still staying tight – sometimes with a bit more strut than we ever would have expected from these guys. The album features a few surprising covers – like "California Dreamin" and "Rose Garden" – plus nice original tracks "Deep Blue Sea", "Love Sketch", "Destination Unknown", and "Don't Let Go". But most amazing here is the Friend Sound album – an offshoot project recorded between the two Brotherhood albums – a wild batch of instrumental psychedelia – with plenty of avant garde touches thrown in! This is the sort of record that always restores our faith in major labels – and it makes us realize that no matter how many Elvis Presley albums RCA was selling in the 60s, there was also room to put out odd little record like this one. The enigmatic Friend Sound sound like a loose collective of hippie jazz musicians – playing flute, organ, guitars, percussion, piano, recorder, shovel (shovel?), finger cymbals, and just about anything else that seemed to be handy – and they had a style that was kind of like free-jamming jam band work – almost like the band and the engineers took a bucketful of drugs – so many that they got really mellow and dark – then went into the studio to cut a tripped-out album of instrumentals. The whole thing comes across with the same "anything goes" spirit of the NY 60s underground film scene – but with none of the silliness of bands like The Fugs – and it's that kind of energy that makes us love this one. Titles include "Childhood's End", "Lost Angel Proper St", and "The Empire Of Light". CD

George Duning/Henry ManciniDear Brigitte/Mr Hobbs Takes A Vacation (with bonus tracks) ... CD
20th Century/Kritzerland, 1962/1965. New Copy .... $19.99
Two different Jimmy Stewart comedy soundtracks from the 60s – both of them nice! First up is Dear Brigitte – an overlooked 1965 score by George Duning – done with a mix of the playful modes you'd expect from the story, and some of those great deeper dramatic touches that Duning used in more serious soundtracks – a really rich mixing of modes with a sound that's much stronger than we expected! Titles include "On To BBs", "The Captain", "Magical Moment", "Puzzled Cap'n", "Hey Dad", "Is It A Trick", and "She Sank". Next is an even groovier record – a rare non RCA Henry Mancini soundtrack from the early 60s – the score to Mr Hobbs Takes A Vacation, done with all the best mix of jazz and groovy elements we love in classic Mancini! Instrumentation mixes a key electric guitar melody with some lighter touches on woodwinds – really getting the most out of the melody with some shifts in timing and tone, juxtaposed with a few numbers that are even more playful! Titles include "Barn Swallow", "Something For Lauri", "Cream Puff", "Up His Nose", "A Month Off", and "Rudders & Sails". CD features 39 tracks in all – including 7 bonus tracks from the Mancini score! CD

Joe FarrellPenny Arcade ... LP
CTI, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold .... $19.99
Killer CTI work from Joe Farrell – with grooves so sharp you could cut your trousers on them! Farrell's angular reed style is in perfect form here – grooving with a small group that includes Herbie Hancock on piano, Joe Beck on guitar, Steve Gadd on drums, and Don Alias on percussion – a combo that's got a harder, tighter feel than most CTI groups – a key reason why Joe's records of this time are so legendary! The album features a fantastic version of Stevie Wonder's "Too High" – one that breaks all over the beginning with these riffs by Farrell, then grooves into a CTI electric funk mode for about 13 minutes. All tracks are long – and other tracks include "Hurricane Jane", "Geo Blue", "Penny Arcade", and "Cloud Cream". LP, Vinyl record album

David HessLast House On The Left – Original 1972 Motion Picture Soundtrack ... LP
One Way Static, 1972. New Copy Gatefold .... $22.99 24.98
David Hess's chillingly great soundtrack to one of the most notorious horror movies of the 70s – Wes Craven's Last House On The Left! Hess's musical pedigree is that of a folk and rock songwriter – and one of the things that makes his songs for Last House On The Left so effective is the way his delicate, tuneful songcraft contrasts with the terrifyingly real sadism and revenge on screen. The other thing that makes it so effective, is that Hess himself portrays the despicable Krug in the film – taking part in said cruelty! The soundtrack has Hess's oddly lovely little songs, along with some incidental period touches, swatches of dialogue and instrumental bits – composed in collaboration with Steve Chapin. This version from One Way Static is totally top notch, too – with liner notes by exploitation cinema and genre veterans Ruggero Deodato, Franco Nero, Ulli Lommel and others. Includes "Little Cows Lookin' For Some Grass", "Baddie's Theme (Instrumental)", "Mari's Birthday Surprise", "Phyllis Spills Her Guts", "Now You're All Alone", "The Chase", "Daddy, Put Your Coat Of Many Colors On", "Mayhem Montage", "Ice Cream Song", "Urban Snatch", "Edude For Chainsaw/Goodbye, Dick" and more.

A great entry in the Chess Heritage Series at the end of the 60s – one that features rare 50s Chicago recordings by Elmore James, plus some even more obscure sides by lesser-known singer John Brim! James' style is well known, and well-executed here – rough and raw, but with a good sense of focus – on tracks that include "Whose Muddy Shoes", "I See My Baby", "My Best Friend", "The Sun Is Shining", "Madison Blues", and "Talk To Me Baby". Brim is great too – a singer we didn't know before this record, with an all-out kind of quality in his voice that's almost a bit like some of the rougher soul of the 60s at times. Brim sings "Lifetime Baby", "Ice Cream Man", "You Got Me", and "Rattlesnake". CD features two bonus tracks – an alternate of "The Sun Is Shining" and the track "Gary Stomp". CD

A crack set of early 70s Latin, played by "the cream of New York" – a group that includes Louie Ramirez on piano, vibes, and organ, and Mauricio Smith on flute and sax! The whole album's pretty darn great, with a really strong jazzy touch – thanks to great work by Ramirez and Smith – and at some level, the feel of the record is similar to that of labelmates Ocho, with an equally righteous blend of styles. Most tracks have vocals, but the main focus is on the strong instrumentation – and 2 cuts on the set are instrumentals. Titles include "Salta Perico", "El Party", "Quimbia", "Mi Pais", and a great funky cover of "Cisco Kid"! CD

Modern LoversModern Lovers Live ... CD
Castle (UK), 1977. Used .... $18.99
Jonathan Richman at his childish best – working live with a later version of the Modern Lovers, after he kicked out all the rock stars! Richman at this point was a fragile genius – really concerned (honestly) with "making music that didn't hurt kids' ears". As such, he spends a lot of time working through simple – and wonderful themes best summed up by the titles of tunes like "I'm A Little Airplane", "Hey There Little Insect", "New England", "Ice Cream Man", and "The Morning Of Our Lives". And while it's easy to say that this Richman isn't nearly as punk rock as you'd like him to be, there's also a strange appeal to these tunes – like Jonathan's retreated to a kind, gentle, safe space – after seeing all the damage that the punk rock kids he inspired had done! Honestly, we used to pass this one up all the time – but now we really dig it a lot! CD

Peter & GordonIn London For Tea (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1967. New Copy .... $29.99
Groovy 60s Brit pop from the team of Peter Asher and Gordon Waller – two cats who have a way of drawing on the harmonies of the Merseybeat generation, then sending the tunes home with a bit more individual charm! Most tracks here are hits from other artists – both British and American – but the pair really add their own approach that makes the music mighty nice – a style that sometimes echoes the approach of Chad & Jeremy, but also reaches for some of the soul of the Righteous Brothers too. Arrangements are usually simple and not that gimmicky – leaving lots of room for the vocals to take the lead – but there's also a nice sense of bounce that keeps things playful throughout. Titles include "Sunday For Tea", "The Jokers", "I'm Your Puppet", "Red Cream & Velvet", and "Stop Look & Listen" – plus the excellent "London At Night". CD features the full album in mono and stereo, plus bonus tracks by Gordon Waller – including "Little Nonie", "Speak For Me", and "Rosecrans Blvd". CD

The group gets their percussive name from the dual drums of Tim Daisy and Frank Rosaly – players who bring a real intensity to the music at some moments, yet lie back and have very individual, subtle spirits at other points – often to let Rempis express some amazing tones and textures on alto, tenor, or baritone sax – given great shape and inspiration by Ingebrigt Haker Flaten on bass. All the tracks are long, and very improvised – and titles include "Algonquins", "Cream City Stomp", "Anti Goons", and "Croatalus Adamantooths". CD

Minnie Riperton's still in the band on vocals, and her work on the LP is similar to that on the legendary Come To My Garden LP.

The album features the incredible track "I Am the Blackgold of the Sun" – a haunting soul anthem that has been a favorite of groovers for years, and which was later made into a house track by NuYorican Soul. A great album all the way through, and filled with loads of excellent cuts! LP, Vinyl record album

John SurmanHow Many Clouds Can You See? ... CD
Deram/Vocalion (UK), 1970. New Copy .... $16.99
A near-perfect album from the great John Surman – recorded at the crossroads of the British jazz scene as it stepped into the 70s, and done with a fullness and focus that Surman hardly matched again! As with some of the other Deram sessions of the time, the album's overflowing with great players from the cream of the British new wave of jazz – including Barre Phillips on bass, Tony Oxley on drums, Alan Skidmore on tenor, Harry Beckett on trumpet, and John Taylor on piano – but despite strong work from the entire ensemble, Surman's work on baritone, soprano, and bass clarinet are a tremendous highlight here – poised between some of Eric Dolphy's most inventive modes on the instruments, and some of the greater changes to come in the European free scene of the 70s! There's a cohesiveness here that's really wonderful – a sound that's never too free, nor too overindulgent – but also not as tightly arranged as on work by some of Surman's contemporaries. Titles include "Caractacus", "Galata Bridge", "Premonition", and the long suite "Event". CD

Cecil TaylorJumpin' Punkins ... CD
Candid (UK), 1961. Used .... $8.99
Pretty well peak era material from pianist Cecil Taylor – doing his thing with incredible line up of jazz greats on a couple NYC dates from early 1961! A couple of the pieces here are pure magic – we're especially loving the bits where Cecil is kind of hitting the keys heavily, spurring the players from a comfortable, measured gait into something a bit more feral, but it never busts wide open, creating a dynamic tension. The cream of the crop are on board, including Clark Terry, Roswell Rudd, Steve Lacy, Archie Shepp and Billy Higgins. The numbers mostly run north of 8 minutes, for a nicely loose, lingering groove, and titles include "Jumpin' Punkins", "OP", "O Forgot" and "Things Ain't What They Used To Be". CD

Mary Lou Williams/Barbara CarrollLadies Of Jazz ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1957. New Copy .... $10.99
An odd pairing of musicians – but a classic album of piano jazz from the 50s, and some of the more obscure sides by both players! Barbara Carroll works here in a really lovely way that retains the fluidity of her 50s work on RCA, but which also has a slightly rougher edge – a mode that's got some nicely boozy undercurrents, yet still the sort of poise and grace that made Carroll one of the best female pianists of the time. Joe Shulman is on bass and Herb Wasserman is on drums – and titles include "Taking A Chance On Love", "Love Of My Life", "Autumn In New York", "Tis Autumn", and "The Lady's In Love With You". Mary Lou Williams works here in a bit of a comeback mode – some of her first American recordings in a number of years, with Carl Pruitt on bass and Bill Clark on drums. Titles inlcude "Opus Z", "S' Wonderful", "In The Purple Grotto", "From This Moment On", and "You're The Cream In My Coffee". CD

Larry YoungLawrence Of Newark ... LP
Perception, 1973. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
Incredible stuff from the jazz underground of Newark! This is one of the rarest albums ever recorded by jazz organist Larry Young – cut for the tiny Perception label during the early 70s, and featuring some of the cream of the New Jersey jazz underground. The album's got playing that bridges a number of Young's different styles – from his straighter soul jazz work at Blue Note, to his harder jamming with Santana and John McLaughlin, to his more fusion oriented albums for Arista. James Blood Ulmer's on guitar, but there's also a large ensemble of excellent players, and lots of other percussion and cool instrumentation that really gives the album an "out there" sound! Titles include "Sunshine Fly Away", "Saudia", "Hello Your Quietness", and "Khalid Of Space". LP, Vinyl record album

Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP .... $19.99
They're not lying about the title on this one – as the package definitely overflows with deep disco and boogie! But even more importantly, the whole thing's plenty darn rare, too – really killer tracks that we haven't seen compiled elsewhere – and which really represent the cream of the crop of the underground 12" scene in the late 70s and early 80s. Most numbers are nice and long, and veer towards the warmer sounds of the late disco era, rather than the harder sounds in the decade to come – a great reminder that there's still plenty of soulful club gems out there if you know where to look – and in that respect, this compilation's a great place to do so. Titles include "You Don't Care" by China Burton, "Live For Love (12" Extended Mix)" by GC Cameron, "Hot Thang" by Cash, "Bumpsie's Whipping Cream (Savares Mix)" by TJ James & The Fist-O-Funk Orchestra, "I Need You" by Ricky Womack, "Don't Fight The Feeling (12" Mix)" by Master Force, "Closer" by Chemistry, and "Brotherson" by Ojeda Penn.

An incredible compilation of dancefloor soul & disco from the early 80s – rare, extended and previously unreleased mixes by NYC legend John Morales – featuring essential material from Logg, Universal Robot Band, Tony Adderly, Class Action, Inner Life and more! Morales was a part of the DJ remix scene that made club ready soul gems out of a bunch of the pop and soul hits of the day, but this compilation on BBE goes deeper than that for the cream of the crop of the post disco grooves of the day, most running on the long side for that unstoppable dancefloor approach, while keeping the song based soul sound fully in place. Essential!

Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy .... $14.99
Classy soul and killer grooves – a great helping of rare New York sides from the late 60s – all of which show a great evolution of the Uptown style from a few years before! Things are polished, but never too smooth or commercial at all – and instead, the music's got this quality of coming right from the heart of the music scene of the time – the cream of the crop, right from the top – and that includes singers, songwriters, and session help too! Vocals are mighty deep throughout – and the tracks all have a strong indie pedigree, as they're pulled from the labels Wand, Scepter, and Musicor – all imprints we always check out when digging for rare singles. As usual, Kent's gone way beyond expectations – not just with the track selection, but with full notes too – for a total of 24 tracks that include "Runaway Slave" by Joe Perkins, "That Girl" by Porgy & The Monarchs, "Kiss & Make Up" by The Inspirations, "I Don't Want Nobody To Lead Me On" by The Masqueraders, "Horsin Around" by Benny Gordon & The Soul Brothers, "Lonely Weatherman" by The Premiers, "A Man A Woman" by Chris Bartley, "I Just Gotta Have You" by Nella Dodds, "Knick Knack Patty Wack" by Lou Lawton, "No Jealous Lover" by Lois Lane, and "I'm Gonna Have A Party" by Ed Bruce.

A dancefloor classic! The album's the second by Gregg Diamond's Bionic Boogie, and head and shoulders above the rest – a sublime blend of soul and club that's hardly been matched again! Diamond manages to make things groove, but never loses sight of the soulful styles that make the record so great – and works here with key contributions from a young Luther Vandross, who gives the album some of the same strong vocal arrangements he brought to his own first two albums on Atlantic! Luther sings lead on the album's legendary track "Hot Butterfly", and works in a group with Cissy Houston on other tracks – sweetly soaring with vocals that go far beyond most disco efforts of the time. Simply sublime, and with classics that include "Hot Butterfly", "Paradise", "Cream (Always Rises To The Top)", "Chains", and "When The Sh*t Hits The Fan (Rocket Pocket)". CD

Buddy Guy & Junior WellsBuddy Guy & Junior Wells Play The Blues (expanded edition – with unreleased tracks) ... CD
1972. New Copy .... Around January 14, 2014 (delayed)
We're not normally ones to rave about electric blues albums, but this one's a lot nicer than you might think – recorded with plenty of deep soul touches, and even a dose of funk in the right places! We hate to admit it, but a big part of the credit here goes to Eric Clapton – who produced most of the record and gives Buddy and Junior a tightness that's missing from some of their other records of the time. There's almost a post-Cream sort of groove to the record – that "hipper than rock" sensibility that colored many of Clapton's old group members' projects for Atlantic in the years after Cream disbanded. But of course, Buddy Guy & Junior Wells are the real stars of the set – and the record's good enough to make even jaded Chicago residents like us appreciate their talents here! Titles include "A Poor Man's Plea", "My Baby She Left Me", "A Man Of Many Words", "I Don't Know", and "This Old Fool". 2CD set features a whopping huge batch of bonus tracks – 13 in all – including "Tears Tears Tears", "Checkin Up On My Baby", "Last Night", "Bad Bad Whiskey (long version)", "You're So Fine (mono rough mix)", "Stone Crazy", "Dirty Mother For You", "D Blues", and "First Time I Met The Blues".

This massive batch of music is a great illustration of the special sound of the KPM library – a really unique outlet for British musicians in the 60s and 70s to craft records that were even more amazing than their studio sides – vintage jazz, soul, and electronic grooves – served up by a lineup that represents the cream of the crop of the UK scene of the time – plus a few surprising outside contributions as well!

The CD features tracks from a rare album that Criss cut in Paris during the early 60s, while he was living in the city and working with the cream of its jazz players. This all-star set has Criss blowing some wonderfully soulful alto in a combo that includes Georges Arvanitas on organ and piano, Rene Thomas on guitar, Pierre Michelot on bass, and Philippe Combelle on drums.

One Way Static, 1972. New Copy (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
David Hess's chillingly great soundtrack to one of the most notorious horror movies of the 70s – Wes Craven's Last House On The Left! Hess's musical pedigree is that of a folk and rock songwriter – and one of the things that makes his songs for Last House On The Left so effective is the way his delicate, tuneful songcraft contrasts with the terrifyingly real sadism and revenge on screen. The other thing that makes it so effective, is that Hess himself portrays the despicable Krug in the film – taking part in said cruelty! The soundtrack has Hess's oddly lovely little songs, along with some incidental period touches, swatches of dialogue and instrumental bits – composed in collaboration with Steve Chapin. This version from One Way Static is totally top notch, too – with liner notes by exploitation cinema and genre veterans Ruggero Deodato, Franco Nero, Ulli Lommel and others. Includes "Little Cows Lookin' For Some Grass", "Baddie's Theme (Instrumental)", "Mari's Birthday Surprise", "Phyllis Spills Her Guts", "Now You're All Alone", "The Chase", "Daddy, Put Your Coat Of Many Colors On", "Mayhem Montage", "Ice Cream Song", "Urban Snatch", "Edude For Chainsaw/Goodbye, Dick" and more.

Not Supermellow, but super dope – one of the grooviest albums ever from drummer Paul Humphrey, and a sweet batch of laidback electric funky jazz cuts! Paul's working here with a bit more keyboards and guitar than before – all nicely compressed into the grooves that are directed by his tight work on drums – often stepping around in a really badass mode that we totally love, and which moves past a simple approach to funky rhythms. Humphrey clearly knows that he's got to complicate things a bit more than usual to keep the ears of the increasingly sophisticated 70s listener – by going for hipper changes and timings, while still keeping the tight core funky groove intact. He's helped strongly in his efforts here by players who include Joe Sample, Wilton Felder, and Arthur Adams – all playing in a more laidback, less studio mode than on other sets – and even the arranger Nick Decaro manages to play some groovy accordion on a few tracks!

Of course, Lennon & McCartney contributed the title track "Hey Jude" – which Wilson redoes here with the same soulful inflection that Ike & Tina were bringing to some of the 60s rock cannon at the end of the decade – and other titles include "Save Me", "My Own Style Of Loving", "Toe Hold", "People Make The World", "A Man & A Half", and "Sit Down & Talk This Over".

New Michel PolnareffDouble Best Of Michel Polnareff (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Universal (France), Late 60s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 2LP .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A special vinyl-only collection of work from Michel Polnareff – one of our favorite French pop talents from the end of the 60s! Polnareff's got this quality that's unlike anyone else we can think of – very expressive, but without being overly emotive – sometimes crafting the lyrics with this warble, sometimes with a raspy whisper – and almost always set to these cool baroque arrangements that really push the whole thing over the top! Michel's not nearly as well-known on these shores as some of his contemporaries, but his music is equally wonderful – and this special set has a very strong focus on all his best years of the late 60s, with more from the early 70s – and a few key tracks from later years too. Titles include "Ame Caline", "Le Roi Des Fourmis", "Love Me Please Love Me", "L'Amour Avec Toi", "Ta Ta Ta Ta", "Ring A Ding", "Le Bal Des Laze", "Mes Regrets", "Ne Dans Un Ice Cream", "Tam Tam", "Radio", "Lettre A France", and "Holidays".

Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1976. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent groover from the legendary Vince Montana! Vince arranged, produced, conducted, and wrote just about all of this second album by hard-grooving Salsoul Orchestra – and the album's a no-nonsense batch of disco instrumentals that's way better than many of the fake albums of the type that sprung up in the group's wake. The players include the cream of the Sigma Studios team – including the Baker/Harris/Young triad – and the tracks have a wonderfully soulful sound, with loads of great instrumentation on guitar, bass, percussion, and Montana's jazzy vibes! Titles include "It's Good For The Soul", "Nightcrawler", "Nice N Naasty", "Salsoul 3001", "Ritzy Mambo", and "It Don't Have To Be Funky (To Be A Groove)". 5 bonus tracks: 12" disco mixes of "Nice N Naasty", "It Don't Have To Be Funky (To Be A Groove)", "Ritzy Mambo" and "IT's Good For The Soul" – plus the single version of "Nice N Naasty".

This is Waits in after hours yearning mode, still upright on a barstool or a piano bench, not yet having fallen in a gutter. It's one of his best records. Includes "Ol' 55", "I Hope That I Don't Fall In Love With You", "Midnight Lullaby", the beautiful "Martha" – which still one of his best written songs), plus "Rosie", "Lonely", "Ice Cream Man", "Closing Time", "Grapefruit Moon", and "Little Trip To Heaven".

80s grooves galore – and a sublime collection of rare and underground boogie tunes from a few decades back! The package was put together by rabid collectors Joey Negro and Sean P – and is a welcome contrast to some of the dodgier 80s sets on the market – because Joey and Sean have gone out of their way to present each track with the best sound possible, in a way that lets the keyboards and electro rhythms sparkle with the same energy they had back in the 12" years! But even more than that, the pair have gone out of their way to annotate each track – so that you know that the excellent track list wasn't just a happy accident, and really represents the cream of the crop of the underground 80s scene! Vinyl features 10 tracks in all – including "Love Treatment" by Brenda Watts, "Ease Out" by Mid Air, "I Can Feel Your Love" by Samson & Delilah, "To Please You" by UDM, "I Am On The Real Side" by Lisa Hill, and "Love Massage" by Lowrell Simon.

Rediffusion/RPM (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
If the supermarket still sounded this funky, they'd never have any trouble getting us to do the shopping – thanks to the wonderfully groovy sound library tunes served up on this CD! The collection's a great reminder of the days when Muzak could still sound plenty darn wonderful – an instrumental soundtrack to shopping that was very much in line with the best film and TV themes of the period – fuzzy guitar, burning Hammond, and more – all set to subtly funky rhythms that were more than enough to help keep the mood bright as the shoppers moved down the aisles with their carts! All tracks here are from the UK Rediffusion sound library – an under-tapped source of great bits that's similar to DeWolfe or KPM, but much less familiar. Most numbers are by the cream of the crop of the Brit Easy scene – and although most tracks are originals, there's also a few surprising covers too. Titles include "Take Eight" by Pete Moore, "The Cutter" by Vic Flick Sound, "Some Other Time" by Alan Moorehouse, "Hold Tight" by Howard Blaikley Orchestra, "Flash" by Val Merrall, "Next Of Kingsleigh" by Harry Stoneham, "Cat Walk" by Pete Moore, "Spoofin" by Tony Evans, "John & Paul" by Tony Osborne, "Cubanana" by Vic Flick Sound, "Friendship Train" by Rosetta Hightower, "Solar Wind" by Pete Moore, and "Soul In Space" by Harry Stoneham. 25 tracks in all – and great notes too!

New VariousImpressed With Gilles Peterson 2 – Rare, Classic, & Unique Modern Jazz From Britain 1963-1974 ... CD
Universal (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the headiest collections of jazzy grooves you'll ever hope to find – and one of the greatest, too! The tracks on the set are all hand-picked by Gilles "golden ears" Peterson – and together, they represent some of the cream of the crop of the British jazz scene at the end of the 60s and start of the 70s! At the time, British musicians were moving away from the tighter formations used in the immediate post-war years – into a realm that was steeped in the experimental and post-colonial influences that were running through London at the time. And while you might expect that to mean that the tracks are "out", or avant, they're not – as all tunes are wonderful groovers that catch our ears right away, and hold our attention with a sense of joyous expression that's so often missing in recent jazz. The package features 10 tracks in all – most of which have never been reissued – and titles include "Ursula" by Michael Garrick Septet, "Don't Fall Off The Bridge" by Tubby Hayes & Paul Gonsalves, "Starless & Bible Black" by Stan Tracey, "Metropolis (part IX)" by Mike Westbrook, "Will You Walk A Little Faster" by Niel Ardley, "A Street In Bombay" by Amanico D'Silva, "Timewind" by Mike Taylor Remembered, "The Hipster" by Harold McNair, and "Le Dejuner Sur L'Herbe" by The New Jazz Orchestra.

Kent (UK), Early 60s. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hardly the kind of music you'd want to keep in the basement – as the set's overflowing with classic soul from the 60s – especially the kind of underground nuggets we love so much! If we had to pick a style, we might say that the collection's heavy on Northern Soul rompers from the American indie scene way beyond Detroit – but there's also lots of other tasty flavors on here too, including some special west coast numbers and early funk tracks that really give the whole thing a great sense of variety – while still keeping to the upbeat, lively rhythms that make the set so great! Every track's a winner – and although most of these tracks never charted at the time, most have gone onto win big fame through constant circulation between DJs and collectors over the past few decades. Titles include "Sock It To Em Soul Brother" by Bill Moss, "The Horse" by Cliff Nobles, "Sign On The Dotted Line" by Gene Latter, "Peaches N Cream" by The Ikettes, "Tramp" by Lowell Fulsom, "I'll Never Forget You" by Marke & Chris Jackson, "Take It Baby" by The Showmen, "Ooh Wee Baby I Love You" by Fred Jackson, "Giving Up" by The Ad Libs, "With This Ring" by The Platters, "One Eye Open" by Maskman & The Agents, "Baby Please Come Back Home" by JJ Barnes, "Gotta Give Her Love" by The Volumes, and "Believe In Me Baby (part 1)" by Jesse James & The Dynamic Four.

If you know the Record Kicks name, you know that the label's a key outlet for contemporary deep funk and mod soul grooves – sounds that are steeped in the best influences of the 60s and 70s, but played by the cream of the crop of the global underground – including great funky groups on both sides of the Atlantic! With all the cuts on the collection, the set's one hell of a bargain – especially when you figure that it's got these cuts you won't find anywhere else: "Don't Judge A Book By It's Cover" by The Hawk, "Waiting For Reforms" by Gizelle Smith, "Zebra 3" by The Link Quartet, "Scaramunga (Lack of Afro 7" edit)" by Ray Harris & The Fusion Experience, "With Time" by Katzuma, "Changes (funk edit)" by Milano Jazz Dance Combo, and "Irrompibles Hi Fi" by Crabs Corporation.

A few cuts lack the Hammond – and these get an even fiercer, heavier groove with the bass placed right up front in the mix –a nd the whole thing's the kind of amazing gem that should have propelled these guys onto much bigger fame. An obscure one from the Zell side of the east coast scene – with tracks that include "Collage Thought", "Second Time For Me", "Just Like You", "Slumberland Blues", and "No Time Tomorrow".

Lo Recordings (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest, funkiest sound library sets we've heard in a long time – and a massive follow-up to the first two volumes of Nuggets from Luke Vibert! This collection draws heavily on material from the under-tapped Bruton Music library – headed by the same talent that made the KPM 1000 series so funky in the early part of the 70s – born anew here, with a slightly different aesthetic, and even more sweet electronics than ever before!

A sound library and a dancefloor? Sounds like an unlikely combination – but it results in a killer collection that's still one of the greatest sets of sound library funk we've ever heard! This massive batch of music is a great illustration of the special sound of the KPM library – a really unique outlet for British musicians in the 60s and 70s to craft records that were even more amazing than their studio sides – vintage jazz, soul, and electronic grooves – served up by a lineup that represents the cream of the crop of the UK scene of the time – plus a few surprising outside contributions as well! Titles include "That's What Friends Are For" by Alan Parker & Madeline Bell, "Second Cut" by James Clarke, "Swamp Fever" by John Cameron, "Incidental Backcloth No 3" by Keith Mansfield, "Cross Talk" by Francis Coppieters, "Jungle Baby" by Juan Erlando & His Latin Band, "Freeway To Rio" by Les Baxter, "In Advance" by Pierre Lavin, "Senior Thump" by Alan Hawkshaw, "Expo In Tokyo" by Alan Moorehouse, "Funky Express" by Duncan Lamont, "Morning 1/Morning 2" by Klaus Weiss, "Assault Course" by Johnny Pearson, and "Samba Street" by Barry Morgan. The package is a great reworking of the original KPM collection from Strut – and not only features the original funky set, but also features a bonus CD that includes a rare live performance by the KPM All-Stars in 2000 – a wicked reunion with work by James Clarke, Duncan Lamont, Alan Hawkshaw, Keith Mansfield, and other giants from the heyday of KPM.

New Kenyon Hopkins/Duke Ellington/Alex NorthHustler/Paris Blues/Long Hot Summer ... CD
El (UK), 1961. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Back to back jazz soundtracks – the cream of the crop of the early 60s! First up is The Hustler – a killer jazz score from Kenyon Hopkins – a composer we can almost always trust to turn around a killer jass score! The work is mostly in a jazz ensemble mode – and moves between swinging segments, and sadder ones – those beautifully blue passages that Hopkins did so well in the early 60s – full of emotion, but in a really subtle, mature sort of way that also marked a shift in American cinema too – quite a change from the overblown emotion of a decade before, both in the music and on screen. Players include Phil Woods, Jerome Richardson, and Phil Bodner on reeds; Joe Wilder on trumpet, Jimmy Cleveland on trombone, Hank Jones on piano, and Barry Galbraith on guitar – and titles include "Derby Time", "Dining Out", "Fast Buck", "Small Time Charlie", "The Loser", and "Minnesota Fats". Paris Blues is a moody introspective score, written for a 1961 film that starred Paul Newman as a frustrated jazz musician living in Paris. The "Paris Blues" theme is a dark, somber composition that is supposedly Newman's masterpiece as a jazz writer – and it works beautifully with the film's themes of frustration and unfulfilled desire. Ellington's at his best here, and apart from the main theme, the score also has great versions of classics like "Mood Indigo" and "Take The A Train", plus originals like "Nite", "Wild Man Moore", "Guitar Amour", and "Paris Stairs". Also features Louis Armstrong on one track! CD also features 7 more tracks from The Long Hot Summer – a more traditional score penned by Alex North, and featuring a title song by Jimmie Rodgers. CD

The orchestrations are often full, but usually have these really deep, dark sonic bits in the mix – low-end sounds that are really amazing, and which create this turgid quality that really offsets any slight sense of melody in the mix. Plus, a few cuts have some excellent electronics – almost used more in a 70s horror mode than you'd guess from the date – which gives the whole thing a surprisingly timeless feel. CD features loads of cuts from the film, plus some extra cues too – and titles include "Ice Cream Truck", "Contact", "His First Call", "Jack's Tune", "Mr Fear Goes Down", "Casey's Theme", and "Trespasser".

Minnie Riperton's still in the band on vocals, and her work on the LP is similar to that on the legendary Come To My Garden LP. The album features the incredible track "I Am the Blackgold of the Sun" – a haunting soul anthem that has been a favorite of groovers for years, and which was later made into a house track by NuYorican Soul. A great album all the way through, and filled with loads of excellent cuts! Other tracks include "If I Sing My Song", "Hey, Love", "Love Has Fallen On Me", and a cover of Terry Callier's "Song For Everyman". CD

Diskotur/World Psychedelia, Early 70s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Trippy rock from the three Hurel brothers of Turkey – a fuzzed-up, freaked-out trio that comes off with some great psychedelic touches! The sound here is a great blending of modes – similar to some of the other Turkish rock from the time that merged electric guitar with folkloric inspirations – but the overall Hurel groove is much more strongly progressive, and sometimes slightly funky at times – due to a tight set of rhythms at the bottom. There's a heaviness here that almost hits Cream-like intensity for the power trio – save for the fact that the lyrics instantly mark the work as being of non-Anglo origins, as do the eastern shadings in the use of guitar and some of the percussion. Titles include "Kol Basti", "Hoptirinom", "Yara", "Doner Dunya", "Agit", "Aglaras Anam Aglar", "Kucuk Yaramaz", and "Canim Kurban". CD

Warner (Japan), 1958/1959. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A really unique little concept for a record – and a set that does a great job of showing the state of the jazz trombone at the end of the 50s! The album's divided up into two different sides, with two different groups – and side one features an east coast lineup with arrangements by JJ Johnson, and a really swinging ensemble that features additional trombone work from Bob Brookmeyer, Melba Linston, Eddie Bert, Jimmy Cleveland and Bennie Green! The sound is great – never hokey at all, and with some great solos spiraling out from the larger trombone section – on titles that include "Neckbones", "Tee Jay", "Soft Winds", and "Dues Blues". Side two was recorded on the west coast, with vibrant production from Alvino Rey – and some equally dynamic arrangements from the great Marty Paich! The groove is way more upbeat than you might expect – hardly laidback cool jazz at all – and Paich's got that great swing he brought to some of his best vocal sessions of the time. Trombones are the cream of the crop of the west – including Frank Rosolino, Stu Williamson, Bob Enevoldsen, and Milt Bernhart – and titles include "Lassus Trombone", "It's All Right With Me", "Heat Wave", and "Impossible".

New WitchWe Intend To Create Havok – Complete Works 1972 to 1977 (4CD set) ... CD
Now Again, Mid 70s. New Copy 4CD .... Out Of Stock
Amazing sounds from Witch – a Zambian group of the 70s, and easily one of the heaviest things happening in Africa at the time! Witch stands for "we intend to create havoc" – and the group's style here definitely gets that vibe right – serving up a heady brew of fuzzy guitars, rumbling bass, and dark rhythms – all very much in the best mix of psych and funk you'd find in the Zamrock scene of the time – but with an even prouder, louder feel overall – as if the group were poised to dominate the global market of the 70s – even though it's taken them decades longer to finally get the attention of ears in the Northern Hemisphere! The mix of sharp rhythms and deep bottoms puts the group somewhere in the territory of Cream or T Rex at their best – but they've also got a looser, freer, and more honest vibe that almost pre-figures 80s indie rock in the US – a vibe that's almost Homestead moving into Sub Pop, yet with a rougher production style that really keeps things interesting. A few of the group's albums have been reissued over the years, but this full-length package is simply mindblowing – a box set, with detailed notes, featuring their complete mid 70s recordings – including the albums Lukombo Vibes, Introduction, In The Past, Lazy Bones, and Including Janet – plus a whole bonus set of rare 7" single material too. Now again have really raised the bar with this sweet package – and trust us, the whole thing's an amazing discovering in 70s rock – a real special event of Mojo-like proportions! CD

Guitar and vocals all seem to be coming out of the same fuzzed-out source on the tunes – as basslines step stiffly forward and drums snap with a flatness that supports the style perfectly – creating a glittering groove that goes way way beyond the better-known hits of the era!

New VariousTV Sound & Image – British Television, Film, & Library Composers 1956 to 1980 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD .... Out Of Stock
England was a surprisingly funky place in the 60s and 70s – home to a rich array of great grooves created by the scene's important sound library labels – staffed by the cream of the crop of the British jazz musicians and soundtrack composers of the time! The work of these cats often backed bigger names in film and TV – James Bond, The Avengers, Dave Allen, and others – but this set digs even deeper, to uncover a host of great instrumental moments that go way beyond famous movie themes – a wealth of excellent cuts from the late 50s through the late 70s – starting with exotic jazz modes, moving into 60s mod swingers, and including a fair bit of 70s electric funk as well! This scene's been reissued a bit before, but never this well – as Soul Jazz do their usual top-shelf job of bringing the music together – and offering up detailed notes and a great package that really sends the whole thing home. 2CD version features 36 tracks that include "Condition Red" by Barry Stoller, "Light Flight" by Pentangle, "Man Alive" by Tony Hatch, "The Contract Man" by Bullet, "Echo Four Two" by Laurie Johnson, "Man Friday" by Syd Dale, "Hard Hitter" by Keith Papworth, "Fragment Of Fear" by Johnny Harris, "Sort Of Soul" by Birds & Brass, "Fiesta Numero Uno" by The Marleybone Orchestra, "The Persuaders" by John Barry, "Getting Nowhere In A Hurry" by Roy Budd, "Canvas" by Brian Bennett, "Death Line" by Will Malone, "Folk Song" by James Clarke, "Steam Heat" by Barbara Moore, "Artful Dodger" by Syd Dale, "Jaguar" by John Gregory, "Whole Lotta Love" by CCS, "Face Up" by Alan Moorehouse, "Angels" by Alan Parker, and "Soul Thing" by Keith Mansfield.

New Salsoul OrchestraNice N Naasty ... LP
Salsoul, 1976. Used Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
An excellent groover from the legendary Vince Montana! Vince arranged, produced, conducted, and wrote just about all of this second album by hard-grooving Salsoul Orchestra – and the album's a no-nonsense batch of disco instrumentals that's way better than many of the fake albums of the type that sprung up in the group's wake. The players include the cream of the Sigma Studios team – including the Baker/Harris/Young triad – and the tracks have a wonderfully soulful sound, with loads of great instrumentation on guitar, bass, percussion, and Montana's jazzy vibes! Titles include "It's Good For The Soul", "Nightcrawler", "Nice N Naasty", "Salsoul 3001", "Ritzy Mambo", and "It Don't Have To Be Funky (To Be A Groove)". LP, Vinyl record album

New Swamp DoggCuffed, Collared, & Tagged/Doing A Party Tonite ... CD
West Side (UK), 1972/1980. Used .... Out Of Stock
2 different albums from Swamp Dogg – one recorded at the beginning of the 70s, one at the end of the decade, but both for the Hi/Cream label, which gives the material a more unified sound than you'd expect. The tracks are perhaps a bit less over the top than some of Swamp's recordings for other labels, but they still have his strong commitment to rough-edged soul – as you'll hear on the 18 tracks that include "Hang On, I'll Save You", "Sam Stone", "Complication No 5", "If It Hadn't Been For Sly", "Come A Little Closer Baby", "Mind Over What's The Matter", "What's Left For Y'Awll To Do", "In My Resume", "Captain Of Your Ship", and "Your Last Dirty Trick".

New Frank ZappaLumpy Gravy ... CD
Ryko, 1968. Used .... Out Of Stock
Amazing sounds from Frank Zappa – and a record that showed the world that he was also one hell of an arranger too! The album's got all the offbeat, tripped-out qualities that you'd expect from late 60s Zappa – but at times, it's also got this tightness that's really amazing – almost as if Frank's showing the world that he can easily do the same things as the studio wizards of LA pop – but chooses to keep most of his efforts on the wrong side of the tracks! There's plenty of larger backings at points – handled by some of the cream of the crop of the LA studio and jazz scene – but other moments are pretty darn raw, and have a gritty, almost homemade sound collage feel.

New VariousESP Disk Fire Music Vol 1 – A High Energy Avant Garde Jazz Compilation ... CD
ESP, 1960s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
An explosion of music from the legendary ESP Records label – a 50th Anniversary tribute to all the genius that made the imprint so wonderful back in the day – and easily one of the most important jazz labels in America! The set here focuses heavily on ESP's contribution to avant jazz – and the tracks feature the cream of the crop of the east coast scene at the time – particularly the groundbreaking New York players who were running forward with the experiments of the "new thing" generation, and starting to forge the first space for free jazz in the US! Titles include "Burn Baby Burn" by Norman Howard, "No 6" by New York Art Quartet, "The Lady" by Frank Wright, "Cocktail Piece" by Don Cherry, "Metamorphosis" by Sonny Simmons, "Other Worlds" by Sun Ra, and "Batterie" by Paul Bley.

David BoykinGalaxophone ... CD
Sonic Healing Ministries, 2004. New Copy .... $4.99
Spare improvisations from Chicago saxophonist David Boykin – recorded as a duet with butoh artist Nicole Legette, who also seems to be vocalizing a bit on the record! The album's easily one of the most challenging that Boykin's ever given us – quite open, and very expressive – sometimes concerned strongly with low tones on the saxophone, while at others screaming out with almost voice-like qualities. There's a feel here that's almost like some of Roscoe Mitchell's best solo work from years back – and the 27 minute CD features 11 smaller excerpts that are all pretty wonderful! CD

Tiny BradshawTribute To The Late Tiny Bradshaw – The Great Composer – He Wrote & Played Them All ... LP
King, Early 50s. Near Mint- .... $7.99
Of all the R&B bandleaders of the 50s, Tiny Bradshaw was one of the wildest! He had a tight rolling groove that managed to infuse his whole band with a lively sense of rhythm that was often unmatched by some of the other sleepier groups of the time – and he also managed to hire some of the better saxophone talents of the time, which means that some of his tracks are filled with wails, screams, and pops that are right out of an Albert Ayler session! This album's one of his few ever – and titles include "Stack Of Dollars", "Soft", "Ping Pong", "Light", "South Of The Orient", "Train Kept A Rollin", "Later", and "Cat Fruit". LP, Vinyl record album

New James BrownI Got Ants In My Pants And I Want To Dance (part 1/parts 15 & 16)) ... 7-inch
Polydor, 1972. Very Good .... $4.99
Shouting storming uptempo funk from JB – and a track that really hints at his work at the end of the 70s! The cut screams dancefloor all over the place – and believe us, when James has bugs in his pants, he sure knows how to scream! Plus, this single also includes the oddly-numbered "parts 15 & 16" on the flipside! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Burnt SugarSirens Return – Keep It Real 'Til It Flatlines ... CD
Trugroid, 2001. Used .... $6.99
The first part in Burnt Sugar's 2001 trilogy – a darkly jamming effort that's located somewhere at the "intersection of Stockhausen and Shorter"! The guitars are very strongly in the lead on this one – sounding almost like a Glen Branca-driven jamband, as Vernon Reid, Rene Akhan, Morgan Michael Craft, and Kirk Douglass jam like mad, and create dark waves of sound with a slightly soulful edge. Titles include "The Sirens Return", "Screamin Arthur Zafa", "Castles Made Of Sand", and "Two Bass Blipsch". CD

Aalon Butler & The New Breed BandIt's Got To Be Somethin/Gettin' Soul (Part 1) ... 7-inch
PKC/Tramp (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue).... $8.99
A couple of hard grooving tracks from Aalon Butler & The New Breed Band! "It's Got To Be Something" is a nice raw edge to the rhythm and some really feverish vocals by Butler. On the other side, you're getting' plenty of soul on "Gettin Soul (Part 1) – and plenty of funk, thanks to the monstrous bassline – one that dips deep deep deep, and sets the groove for blasting horns, and Aalon's James Brown-like screaming vocals! Mighty nice – with a helluva punch! 7-inch, Vinyl record
