New Dazz BandJukebox ... LP
Motown, 1984. Very Good+ ... $2.99
The Dazz Band must have been on plenty of jukeboxes by this point in their career – hitting hard with that catchy, synth-heavy groove that marked most of their Motown years! The album's got all the catchy pop elements you might guess from the time – not as classically funky as the group in their roots, with lots of emphasis on the keyboards and guitar – that crossover Motown soul mode of the mid 80s. Titles include "So Much Love", "Dream Girl", "She's The One", "Heartbeat", "Let It All Blow", "Undercover Lover", and "Main Attraction". LP, Vinyl record album

Dazz BandKeep It Live ... LP
Motown, 1982. Sealed ... $2.99
Dazz Band keep it plenty live on this early 80s gem – a killer set from the group's hit run for Motown! The set's got a bouncy groove that's very much in the best Motown funk style at the time – lots of bass at the bottom, and plenty tight on production – but never as smooth or commercial as work from a few years later. The group balance things out well with a few mellower cuts – numbers that still have some sort of a groove, but one that's a bit more laidback, and which shows they're not just a funk-driven outfit. Titles include the massive hit "Let It Whip" – plus "Gamble With My Love", "Just Can't Wait 'Till The Night", "Shake What You Got", "Keep It Live", and "Let Me Love You Until". LP, Vinyl record album

Great stuff! "Dazz" is the group's super-huge hit, and a stone classic! The track's got a percolated funky groove that's ensured the tune a long long life – and which has lead to more than a few samples over the years! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Dazz BandHot Spot (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Motown/FTG, 1985. Used ... Out Of Stock
Dazz Band's final album for Motown – crisp, lean and funky dancefloor groovers that didn't hit the peaks of popularity that a few of their previous records achieved, but it's it's got plenty of great moments! It's filled with tight stormers defined by terse beatcraft, spacey keys and soulful vocals from the group – with some blazing guitar work that really sets the group apart from those they influenced! That stands to reason, as guitarist Marlon McCain and keyboard player Keith Harrison were leading the group at this point, with vocal arrangements by Harrison and sax player Bobby Harris. Includes "If Only You Were In My Shoes", "Hot Spot", "Paranoid", "All The Way", "She Used To Be My Girl", "When You Need Roses" and Slow Rap". This Funky Town Grooves edition has 5 bonus tracks – 12-inch versions and alternate mixes of album tracks and more – including "Hot Spot (Club Mix)", "Heartbeat (12" Version)", "Let It All Blow (Special Disco Remix)", "Swoop (I'm Yours) (12" Version)" and "Joystick (Vocal 12").

New Dazz BandInvitation To Love (with bonus track) ... CD
Motown/PTG (Netherlands), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer start to the 80s for the Dazz Band – with great tunes in a funky mode as well as more measured group soul numbers – and it all adds up one of their best albums ever! Tunes like the opener "Shake It", plus "Shake It Up" and "Magnetized" bring the funkier vibes – with a vamping guitar, thumping bass groove, punchy horns, and top notch vocals from the group – while tunes like the title track and "Beyond The Horizon" have a more soaring arrangement of horns and some strings,still with an impeccable core groove. It's not as smoothed out in the production booth as some of their later grooves of the 80s – a total gem! Other titles include " Skate Lovers", "Carry On", "Do It Again", "Do It Again", "Sooner Or Later" and "Beyond The Horizon". CD includes the bonus track single version of "Invitation Of Love". CD

New Dazz BandWild & Free (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Geffen/PTG (Netherlands), 1986. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Dazz Band may be wild and free in the title, but the album's tighter than ever – a lean, focused approach to the Dazz Band sound – done here with loads of 80s production and instrumentation in the mix! The rhythms are heavy with drum machine lines – often mixed with keyboard bits and swirled together with a sound that's even more crossover than some of the group's earlier work. Vocals often take a back seat to the grooves – but on the ballads they shine through nicely, and remind us of the group's roots. Titles include "The Beat That's Right", "Wild & Free", "Love MIA", "Sunglasses", "Something You Said", and "Time Will Heal A Broken Heart". CD features bonus tracks – "Wild & Free (ext dance rmx)", "Last Chance For Love", "Love MIA (house mix)", and "A Place In My Heart". CD

BrickGood High ... LP
Bang, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A killer debut from Brick – the start of a massive run at the end of the 70s, a time when the group was easily one of the biggest acts to come out of the up-and-coming Atlanta scene! Like some other Atlanta acts of the time, Brick had a way of fusing older funky soul on a tighter modern groove – coming up with a sound that was nice and lean – perfect for these key transitional years of funk – with influences that were felt for years, in places as far away as the west coast! Case in point is the album's classic "Dazz" – one of those cuts that never gets old – nestled nicely in a lineup that also includes "Music Matic", "Here We Come", "Good High", "Brick City", and "Sister Twister".

Herbie MannSuper Mann ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A wonderful 70s set from Herbie Mann – and one that features some heavy help from P&P maestro Patrick Adams! The album's more of an Adams-directed affair than the usual Herbie set – as Adams produced and arranged all the tracks, and really takes Mann in the direction of a hip late 70s dancefloor! Rhythms are upbeat and lively – the best side of 70s disco – and there's still plenty of room for Herbie's flute to solo over the top, even though the cuts also feature added keyboards from Adams and Leroy Burgess, plus some occasional vocal choruses as well. Titles include a remake of Celi Bee's "Superman", plus "Etagui", "Jisco Dazz", "Django", "Body Oil", "Rock Freak", and "Stomp Your Feet". CD

John CaleSlow Dazzle (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Island/Culture Factory (France), 1975. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Dazzling work from John Cale – exactly the kind of record that shows why his solo years were so great! The record's got this unusual vibe – on one hand, it's put together like a more conventional rock set of the time – but on the other, it's got strange dark currents that run through the whole thing in very weird ways – a bit like some of the Roxy Music edges from the early years. No surprise, both Brian Eno and Phil Manzanera contribute strongly to the set – but the energy of the record definitely comes from Cale's great songwriting and offbeat vocals – and his great ear for a weird-sounding tune. Titles include "Mr Wilson", "Rollaroll", "Ski Patrol", "Guts", "The Jeweller", and Cale's famous version of "Heartbreak Hotel". CD

First ClassFirst Class ... LP
UK/London, 1974. Very Good ... $4.99
A brilliant extension of the sound of American harmony pop of the 60s – and one that blends it together with a good deal of 70s soft rock as well! First Class are the brainchild of Brit studio legend John Carter – and they're kind of a recast take on the sound of the Beach Boys in later years – filtered through a nicely compressed UK mid 70s pop approach that brings in some sweeter, softer modes, but which also has some of that "bump" of glam-era pop as well. The group's best known for their massive 70s hit "Beach Baby" – but they've got a great sound that's more than worth rediscovering all these years later. Titles include "Beach Baby", "Won't Somebody Help Me", "Bobby Dazzler", "The Disco Kid", "Long Time Gone", "Surfer Queen", and "What Became Of Me". LP, Vinyl record album

New Tony Hatch & OthersEssential Tony Hatch – Grooves, Hits, & Themes (3CD set) ... CD
Pulse (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used 3CD ... $29.99
A really great little set – featuring 3 styles of work by Brit pop legend Tony Hatch! One disc features Hatch doing instrumental work from the 60s – lively renditions of instrumentals and covers, including a few numbers that have gone onto be loungecore classics – tracks like "Soul Coaxing", "Beautiful In The Rain", "Music To Watch Girls By", "Wives & Lovers", "Bedazzled", "Light My Fire", "Birds", "Love Is Blue", "Forget Him", "I Know A Place", and "Crosstown Commuter". Next up is a disc that includes pop hits written or arranged by Tony for other artists – some of the cream of British pop in the 60s! Tracks on that disc include "Downtown", "Call Me", "Don't Sleep In The Subway", and "I Couldn't Live Without You" by Petula Clark; "Lonely Without You" by Julie Grant; "Sugar & Spice" by The Searchers; "Trinity Street" by Two Of Each; "Messing About On The River" by Josh Macrae; "The Two Of Us" by Tony Hatch & Jackie Trent; "Major To Minor" by The Settlers; and "You've Gotta Be Loved" by The Montanas. Last up is the most exciting – a whole disc of TV themes from the 60s and 70s – a genre that Hatch was great at, and really handled well! Tunes on that disc include "Sportsnight", "Ben Casey", "Emmerdale Farm", "Perry Mason", "Crossroads", "The Champion", "Man Alive", "Theme From Who Dun It", "Ghost Squad", "The Naked City", and "Mr & Mrs". 60 tracks, 3CDs – what a deal!

HeatwaveHot Property ... LP
Epic, 1979. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Man, these guys never seem to miss – and always come up with some great little tunes that snap along in a really compelling way! This album might be easy to overlook in favor of the band's bigger classics, but it's a stone winner all the way through – with a number of tunes that groove on beautifully with tight hooks, skipping beats, warm vocals, and that beautifully compressed production style that always gave Heatwave a sound that slide perfectly into an AM soul radio groove. And sure, there's a few hooks here that feel like they're "borrowed" from some of the bigger hits – but they work wonderfully as a reprise of greatness, and keep us half stepping into the album even more. Titles include "Razzle Dazzle", "Eyeballin", "Raise A Blaze", "First Day Of Snow", "One Night Tan", "All Talked Out", "Disco", and "Therm Warfare". LP, Vinyl record album

Little Anthony & The ImperialsOn A New Street/Hold On (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Avco/Soulmusic.com, 1973/1975. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99
Harmony heaven – a pair of Little Anthony & The Imperials albums together in a single set, with some sweet bonus tracks too! On A New Street is wonderful work from Little Anthony – and a great update to his smooth 60s harmony sound with The Imperials! Anthony wisely employs the use of two of 70s top harmony arrangers on the album – using Thom Bell on one side, and Teddy Randazzo on the other – both of whom really help take the group to a whole new level! The Thom Bell material fits perfectly with his work with The Stylistics from the same time, and the cuts have a wonderfully mellow east coast harmony style that's quite different than Anthony's earlier work. Teddy Randazzo does a pretty nice job, too – but with a fuller sound too, almost in a Manhattans mode that makes for a nice change from the previous fragility of Anthony's vocals. Titles include "I Don't Have Time To Worry", "That's What Love is All About", "I'm Falling In Love with You", "Heartache Never Entered My Mind", and "The Loneliest House on the Block". Also features an alternate take on "La La La At The End". Hold On has Little Anthony & The Imperials really hitting some great Philly modes – working with help from Tony Bell and Phil Hurtt, and getting lots of sweet backing from the Sigma Studio team – all in a mode that rivals some of the bigger soul group work of the 70s! The vibe's got a bit of Spinners in the mix, but still also holds on to the more fragile style that made The Imperials so great – especially on the mellower cuts, which have Anthony's voice cracking in that completely wonderful, very human way. But like Eddie Holman on Salsoul, he can also really shine on the clubbier cuts too – and the blend makes for a mighty compelling album from the group! Titles include "Hold On", "You Are The World To Me", "Promise Me", "I've Got To Let You Go", and "Back Where You Belong". CD also features some bonus cuts – "Hold On (stereo single mix)", "I've Got To Let You Go (stereo single)", "I've Got To Let You Go (stereo)", and "I've Got To Let You Go (mono short version)". CD

Little Anthony & The ImperialsOutside Looking In – The Best Of Little Anthony & The Imperials ... LP
Veep/EMI (UK), Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Anthony and crew were one of the few groups who actually got better when they moved from the raw indie scene to the slicker major label one – as you'll hear perfectly on this set of some of their best work for the Veep/DCP/United Artists label. Teddy Randazzo handled the arrangements and production, and his breathy uptown style works perfectly with the band's soulful harmonies. 16 tracks in all, including "Hurt So Bad", "I'm On The Outside (Looking In)", "Out Of Sight Out Of Mind", "Ten Commandments Of Love", "Better Use Your Head", "It's Not The Same", "I'm Hypnotized", "You Better Take It Easy Baby", "Yesterday Has Gone" and "Going Out Of My Head".

Sam RiversContrasts (180 gram pressing) ... LP
ECM (Germany), 1979. New Copy ... $23.99 25.99
A beautifully avant session from ECM – and a great late 70s showcase for the reed talents of the great Sam Rivers! The album's got a mixture of focus and freedom that makes it one of Sam's best from this period – a group outing that features Rivers on tenor, soprano, and flute – in a quartet that features exceptional work on trombone from George Lewis, plus Dave Holland on bass and Thurman Barker on drums. And while the music has some of the open, improvised feel of Rivers' other 70s material – it's also got some of the sharper structure that we love in his earliest 60s work too – kind of a redefinition of "new thing" modes via fresh ideas explored in the loft jazz years. The album's a real standout in ECM from the time – and titles include "Circles", "Zip", "Solace", 'Dazzle", "Images", and "Lines". LP, Vinyl record album

Cherry Red (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $13.99
A warm batch of sunny songcraft, primarily from the 60s – from groovy small combo jazz, to good natured, string-laden vocal tunes, post doo wop group sounds, groovy organ soul, soundtracky instrumentals and beyod – selected by Saint Etienne! It's clear from their own recorded output that Saint Etienne always had terrific ears for breezy, diversely swinging 60s sounds – and they demonstrate that nicely here on a 25 track set compilation – with tunes by Vince Guaraldi, Dave Baby Cortez, The Paris Sisters, Jerry Butler, Connie Francis, Lalo Schifrin and many more! Includes "Be Sure My Love" by Teddy Randazzo, "Be Bom" by Sammy Davis Jr, "Yes I Love You" by The Paris Sisters, "Cha Cha Charming" by Ellie Gaye, "Our Winter Love" by Bill Pursell, "Stranger On The Shore" by The Drifters, "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise" by Vince Guaraldi, "Moon River" by Kerry Butler and more.

New Joshua AbramsNatural Information ... CD
Eremite, 2010. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the most meditative, spiritual sounds we've ever heard from the great Josh Abrams – a record that goes way past his more familiar work on bass – even though that's pretty darn great! For this set, Abrams reaches out to a host of different instruments – including the harmonium, dulcimer, and guimbiri – as well as additional percussion, and acoustic bass as well – all instruments he uses in this really rich, textured way – layring the organic sounds with contributions from Jason Adasiewicz on vibes, Emmett Kelly on guitar, and Frank Rosaly on drums. The record also features a few more really compelling instruments – a bit of Arp from Jim Baker, harmonium from Lisa Alvarado, and autoharp from Ben Boye – instruments that come in towards the end of the record, to make things even more hypnotic and mesmerizing. Titles include "Dolphin Cave Dazzling", "Mysterious Delirious Fluke Of The Beyond", "Abide In Sunset", "A Lucky Stone", and "Soul Talisman". CD

New Jay-ZBlack Album ... CD
Roc-A-Fella, 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
"This here is the victory lap," raps Hove midway through The Black Album, his supposed career-capper (for this stage, anyway), and if nothing here immediately dazzles us to the core the way the best of his past singles have done, overall this is probably the most consistent front-to-back listen of all his albums. One of the nicest things about the Black Album is the brevity. As tight as the best of his recent output has been over the last couple of years – from singles, to album tracks, to guest spots – Jay-Z's simply been TOO productive, which has diluted the overall power of his presence. That issue is addressed right off the bat here – with a very manageable 14 tracks, no guest rhymers, and a consistent overall sound and mood thanks in part to strong production by Kanye West, 9th Wonder, Neptunes, Timbaland, Eminem (who's baroque synth productions are getting dangerously close to going stale, but it fits Jay-Z's dramatic finale theme very well), Rick Rubin and DJ Quik. It's a wildly disparate cast behind the boards, but this thing flows incredibly well thanks to Jay-Z's predetermined mission to make a great album, not just a hot record. Smart ass critics are gonna whine that Jay-Z hasn't reinvented the wheel here or anywhere else in his career, but that was never the point. The point HERE is to go out on his own terms (for the time being, anyway) after achieving so much more than he ever would have dreamed, and as the clear victor of all of his challengers without really taking any parting shots (why the hell would he bother, when he's already won?) We may still have to lean towards Blueprint as his late masterpiece, but this is way up there. "December 4th", "What More Can I Say?", "Encore", "Change Clothes", "Dirt Off Your Shoulder", "Threat", "Moment Of Clarity", "99 Problems", "Justify My Thug", "Lucifer", "Allure", "My First Song", and a couple of brief interludes.

Hot & Sour, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty crazy little series – and a pretty offensive little one at that – a collection of lost rock, soul, and R&B nuggets that recall a time when the American scene was a little bit too freewheeling about its conception of Asian cultures – and was ready to sell out just about any nationality for the sake of a novelty tune! Yet despite that sense of racism – or possibly because of it – there's also a pretty compelling cultural clash going on here – especially on the more urban numbers that seem to have a mixed sense of its neighbors in the city – a mixture of misunderstanding and mysticism that really comes through in the lyrics. Other tracks are instrumental – and go more for a sense of exotica run through more electric guitars and tight drums – kind of a surf or rockabilly take on the world of Martin Denny! Titles on this second volume include "Karate" by The Torkays, "Charlie Chan" by The Sounds, "Hot Saki" by Eddie Atwood & The Goodies, "Suki Yaki Rocki" by The Quarter Notes, "Chinese Boogie" by Hy Tones, "Hong Kong Baby" The Tabbys, "China Girl" by The Four Pharoahs, and "OO Clazy" by The Dazzlers.

A storming mix of R&B, early soul, and rare rockers – all hand-picked by the famous team of Keb Darge and Little Edith! We first knew Keb as an expert in raw funk over 20 years ago – back at a time when few DJs cared about the style – and you can definitely hear Keb's funk-trained ears at work here – as the tunes are all plenty raw and filled with sharp edges – way way different than any mainstream assumptions you might have about rock or soul from this time! The vibe is similar to some of the best Cramps-fueled compilations, or some of the hipper Norton titles – and titles include "Get Whiz" by The Dazzlers, "Jam & Jelly" by The Col-Lee Jets, "Shis Kebab" by The Black Albinos, "Dance Franny Dance" by The Floyd Dakil Combo, "Nervous Breakdown" by Gregory Dee & The Avanties, "Steady With Betty" by Benny Joy, "Please Give Me Something" by Bill Allen & The Back Beats, and "The Shake" by George Fleming.

New O'BryanDoin' Alright/You And I ... CD
Capitol/Expansion (UK), 1981/1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Smooth and sophisticated 80s soul from O'Bryan – his first two Capitol albums together on one CD – thanks to the classic soul devotees at Expansion UK! Doin' Alight and the follow-up You And I are a great mix of smoothed out modern soul, bits of funk and classic soul touches. Most of it is co-produced with Don Cornelius, of Soul Train fame, who helped O'Bryan get his start. A good bit of the debut Doin' Alright has a kicked back, nice and mellow approach – grooving in a modern Capitol Rare mode, with some pop funk bass and elegant strings for good measure. Tracks include "It's Over", "Love Has Found A Way", "Doin Alright", "Can't Live Without Your Love", and "Still Water (Love)". The follow-up brings in a bit more electro and pop funk into the mix – especially on the first half of the record – before settling in with some nice laidback soul and ballads on the second half. The funky "I'm Freaky" kicks it off, and other tracks include "Dazzlin' Lady", "I'm In Love Again", "Shake", "Soft Touch" and the sweet soul title cut. CD

Celeste (Japan), Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the dreamiest sets of sound library tunes we've ever heard – a sampling of work from the De Wolfe Sound Library, with a sound that's different than most other compilations of this type! While most sound library compilations focus on the funkier or beat-heavy tracks, this great little gem goes for the groovy and jazzy numbers – and picks the best of De Wolfe's light and breezy output, including some killer bossa and soundtrack-type cuts. There's a really jazz feel to the whole set – no surprise, as many of the talents were actual recording jazz players themselves, simply working in the studio for De Wolfe in order to bring in a little extra cash. The whole thing's great – really overflowing with great numbers that will show you that the sound library scene is still wonderfully under-tapped! Titles include "Gentle Soul", "Sandy", and "Dazzle" by Roger Webb; "Red Spanish Onions" by David Goykovich, "Boat Race" by Ludovic Decosne, "Holiday Job" by Simon Haseley, "Big Incentive" by Reg Tilsley, and "Up & Away" by P Kass.

New Bembeya Jazz NationalSyliphone Years ... CD
Sterns (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
An awe-inspiring mother lode of classic Guinean grooves from one of Africa's greatest bands! Senegal's Orchestra Baobab have become the media favorite of Africa's golden era, but it only takes one spin of this fabulous anthology to realize that Bembeya Jazz National were as good as any band the continent ever produced. As the title says, this material is culled from the recordings the band made for the great state-owned Syliphone label, and it reflects an era of dazzling creative potency – sensual Afro-Cuban tropes are blended into a powerful mix of Mande melodies, sashaying grooves, and jaw-dropping solos. Most of this collection features lead vocals by the sweet and soulful Aboubacar Demba Camara, who died in a tragic car accident in 1973, while the prodigiously talented Sekou "Diamond Fingers" Diabate unspools one astonishing lead after another. A still-powerful version of the group reunited in 2001, but nothing can match these recordings. Truly essential stuff! Tracks include "Dembaty Galant", "Waraba", "Super Tentemba", "Fatoumata", and "Sina Mousso". Newly repackaged and with and extra track!! CD
