New Luiz Henrique & Walter WanderleyPopcorn ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
An excellent collaboration between two 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".

VariousDouble Cookin – Classic Northern Soul Instrumentals ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
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.

New VariousDusty Heard Them Here First ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.
