Luiz Henrique & Walter WanderleyPopcorn ... CD
1967. New Copy .... Around June 11, 2014
An excellent collaboration between 2 of Verve's best Brazilian artists of the late 60s – the groovy organist Walter Wanderley, and the breezy breathy vocalist Luiz Henrique! The set is a perfect example of the way that Verve took bossa playing and gave it a groovy production twist – turning it into something that was just a little bit different, in a mode that became America's best contribution to the bossa era! The legendary Sivuca puts in a great guest appearance on a few tracks – further enhancing the sound with his "singing" style of accordion work – and the whole thing bounces along in a magical groove that's hardly been duplicated again! Titles include a very unusual funk-based take on "Happy Birthday" – one that has a bit of a break to it – plus "Kee Ka Roo", "Popcorn" (not the Perry-Kingsley hit), "Florianopolis", "In My Automobile", "Dusty Road", and "Blue Island".

New Dusko Goykovich with Nathan Davis & Mal WaldronSwinging Macedonia ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1966. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A legendary German session from the 60s – and a record that really showcases the unusual criss-crossing of modes that was going on in the European scene at the time! There's a very strong MPS vibe here – as trumpeter Dusko Goykovich leads a swinging sextet that includes Nathan Davis on flute, soprano, and tenor – blowing some tremendously soulful reed lines – plus incredible rhythms from Mal Waldron on piano, Peter Trunk on bass, and Cees See on drums. The record's an attempt to bring traditional Macedonian rhythms into a jazz perspective – but with players like these, it swings in a way any Macedonian album never could – damn soulful, and with a great exotic vibe. Davis is especially great, and plays in a soaring modal vein that's similar to his work on his classic MPS sides, and on the records he cut in America in the early 70s. The album's a beautiful session that often get's overlooked because it blends it with the Enja catalog – but it's really more of a record that belongs in an MPS reissue series, and is a great lost groover that's waiting to be rediscovered by the Dusty Groove crowd. Titles include "Macedonia", "Old Fisherman's Daughter", "Jumbo Uganda", "Bem Basha", "Saga Se karame", and "The Nights Of Skopje". CD

BoogarinsAs Plantas Que Curam ... CD
Other/Fat Possum, 2013. New Copy Gatefold .... $11.99 15.99
Melodic psych fuzz grooves from Boogarins – hailing from Goiania, Brazil The group is primarily the duo of Fernando Ameida and Benke Ferraz – who are still in their late teens on this record, but they're clearly old souls – as they carry the spirit of the past 40 years of psychedelic guitar pop from Brazil and other Latin American regions. It's truly timeless stuff! We're obviously eternal lovers of Brazilian music at Dusty Groove, but we're not biased at all when it comes to the psych strains. We wouldn't stump for this so strongly if we weren't true believers. It's the real deal! Titles include "Lucifernandis", "Erre", "Infinu", "Despreocupar", "Hoje Aprendi De Verdade", "Fim", "Doce", "Eu Vou", "Cancao Perdida" and "Paul". CD

VariousDusty Heard Them Here First ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy .... $14.99
The roots of Dusty Springfield – all the great American soul songs that inspired her own UK grooves over the years – served up here in the original recordings that often pack a lot more punch than Dusty's later versions! Most of the set stands strongly as a collection of great 60s soul singles from the US – with just a few later numbers mixed in towards the end – and together, the cuts really illuminate the roots that Dusty Springfield drew from the American scene, and show the singer as one with a much deeper commitment to soul music than some of her contemporaries. And while we'll be the first to admit that we're huge Dusty Springfield fans, and really love her own records – we're also pleased as punch to have a set like this to enjoy! Titles include "Nothing In the World" by Marie Knight, "Packin Up" by Margie Hendrix, "Needle In A Haystack" by The Velvelettes, "Girls It Ain't Easy" by The Honey Cone, "No Stranger Am I" by Norma Tanega, "That Old Sweet Roll" by The City, "Every Ounce Of Strength" by Carla Thomas, "You Can Do It" by Evie Sands, "Crumbs Off The Table" by The Glass House, "Am I The Same Girl" by Barbara Acklin, and "Doodlin" by Baby Washington.

New VariousDouble Cookin – Classic Northern Soul Instrumentals ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
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.
