Chi-LitesGreatest Hits (Epic pressing) ... LP
Brunswick/Epic, Late 60s/Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Issued in 1983, but a good look back at the classic Brunswick years of this massive soul group from Chicago! The Chi-Lites are one of the best harmony acts ever to come out of the Windy City – and while at the Brunswick label during the late 60s and early 70s, leader Eugene Record forged a sound that became a virtual blueprint for the Chicago group sound of the next decade to come. The harmonies are impeccable on the record – as you probably know if you've already heard hits like "Have You Seen Her", "(For God's Sake) Give More Power To The People", "Lonely Man", "Oh Girl", "The Coldest Days Of My Life", "A Letter To Myself", and "Homely Girl".

Nancy AmesLatin Pulse ... LP
Epic, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
Nancy sings some sweet Latin groovers in Spanish – backed by groovy 60s arrangements from Joe Sherman! The feel here isn't quite as driving as on her classic "Mas Que Nada" album – but it does have a similar style – sort of blending easy 60s vocals with swinging pop Latin rhythms, all in a style that's pretty darn groovy, especially on the upbeat numbers! Tracks include Spanish versions of "Yesterday", "That Kiss", "A Taste Of Honey", "Call Me", and "Shadow Of Your Smile". LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Bailey SextetGetting' Into Somethin' ... LP
Epic, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $7.99
Heavy duty hardbop – and one of three amazing Epic sessions cut by drummer Dave Bailey! The set grooves as massively as his One and Two Feet In The Gutter albums – and is recorded with a similar lineup that includes Horace Parlan on piano, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Charlie Rouse on tenor, and Clark Terry on trumpet. Dave's drumming is mighty and soulful, and the set smokes with a lively rolling groove that mixes hardbop and soul jazz into a raw early 60s sound! Includes the 17 minute long jam "Blues For JP", plus "Slop Jah", "Little Old Mongoose", and "Evad Smurd". LP, Vinyl record album

The original 10 inch pressing of this great collection of singles, b-sides and various odds and ends, pulled together in the middle peak of the Clash's career! Black Market Clash holds up incredibly well – it's blazing stuff recorded from '77 to '80 and issued to start that decade. 9 numbers in all, including "Capital Radio One", "The Prisoner", "Pressure Drop", "Cheat", "City Of The Dead", "Time Is Tight", "Bank Robber/Robber Dub", "Armagideon Time" and "Justice Tonight/Kick It Over".

New ClashClash ... LP
Epic, 1977. Very Good ... $19.99
One of the most stunning debut albums of the 70s – and a set that burst on the scene with a sound that summed up a generation, but which had never been heard this clearly before! This self-titled Clash album was different from other landmarks of the time – work by the Sex Pistols, Ramones, and others – as the group had a sense of raw power, but also a tunefulness too – a way of pushing their message into territory that others wouldn't have reached – with tunes that were as surprisingly hummable as they were politically correct! There's a bit less Jamaican influence here than in later Clash years, but that quality is still present somewhat – and over the years, this is definitely a set we can return to again and again – with no sense of apology or outdated ideals at all. Nearly every cut's a classic – and titles include "Janie Jones", "Career Opportunities", "Police & Thieves", "Garageland", "Clash City Rockers", "I Fought The Law", "White Riot", "London's Burning", "White Man In Hammersmith Palais", and "I'm So Bored With The USA".

Sure, the cover's a bit dated – but the politics have stayed surprisingly strong over the years – as has the music as well! Keep in mind that The Clash were waging war in the Mideast years before Desert Storm – in this searing mix of London punk, rocksteady roots, and slight new wave elements – delivered here with a surprising sense of self that really gave the whole thing a sense of wit – and more than enough legs to keep on going without collapsing under the passage of time! Titles include the hit "Should I Stay Or Should I Go", the classic "Rock The Casbah", and the tracks "Ghetto Defendant", "Car Jamming", "Know Your Rights", "Straight To Hell", and "Inoculated City".

ClashLondon Calling (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Epic, 1979. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)... $22.99 29.98
Quite possibly the crowning masterpiece by The Clash – and a record that certainly pushed them out of the punk rock ghetto and into the collections of countless mainstream folks over the years! This is the set that really pushed the group over the top – the one that harnessed all the best energy of the previous two records and gave it a strong new focus – one that draws on roots as deep as the late 50s Elvis reference of the cover art, but which also bubbled over with newly approaching 80s musical ideas and politics! Yet the message never gets in the way of the guitar-heavy tuneful appeal of the songs – ringing out for decades on classics like "Train In Vain", "London Calling", "Spanish Bombs", "Lost In The Supermarket", "Guns Of Brixton", "Clampdown", and "Rudy Can't Fail".

Epic/Rhyme Syndicate, 1989. Near Mint- ... $13.99
Before Anti-Pop, before Blackalicious, before Del there was the Divine Styler. The original forward thinking abstract lyricist's debut LP thankfully isn't quite as left field as its follow up Spiral Walls Containing Autumns Of Light, but it's an essential piece of hip history, and way, way ahead of its time. You need "Divinity Stylistics", "Ain't Sayin Nothin", "Tongue Of Labyrinth" and "Koxistin U4ria". Also includes "Word Power", "In Divine Style", "Free Styler", "The Last Black House On The Left", "It's A Black Thing", "Rain", "Get Up On It", and "Play It For Divine". LP, Vinyl record album

DonovanMellow Yellow (mono pressing) ... LP
Epic/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy ... $21.99
Easily one of Donovan's most successful albums – but also a brilliant blend of folk and jazz that forged a bold new sound in the 60s – here in the original mono mix! Part of the strength of the set comes from arranger John Cameron – an artist that we love for his jazz and easy work of the late 60s, and who's working here with players that include British jazzmen Phil Seamen, Tony Carr, Ronnie Ross, and Harold McNair! The instrumental component of the album alone is worth the price of admission – as Cameron gently blends together moddish and trippy styles, alongside some folksier vocals and guitar from Donovan. But it's also Donovan's own extrapolation of styles of the time that really makes the album a masterpiece – a strange post-folk mode of expression that's almost a British counterpart to the genius of Simon & Garfunkel, but which is arguably darker and more intellectual. Apart from classic hits like "Museum" and "Mellow Yellow", the album also features some moodier brilliance on tracks that include "The Observation", "Hampstead Incident", "Sunny South Kensington", "Writer In The Sun", "Sand & Foam", and "House Of Jansch".

New DonovanSunshine Superman ... LP
Epic, 1966. Very Good ... $9.99
One of the grooviest albums of the 60s – and the first album in Donovan's legendary run with producer Mickie Most! The sound here is light years away from the heavy Dylan of Donovan's first recordings – and is steeped in eastern influences that sparkle in both the songwriting and arrangements – and which can be most strongly heard in the album's trademark use of tablas and electric sitar! Donovan's vocals are completely sublime, too – done in that raspy, almost lispy style that brings out all the best edges in his songwriting – and the lyrics of the tunes are a mind-expanding array of themes that really pushed the boundaries of 60s pop. Titles include the sublime classic "Sunshine Superman", plus "Bert's Blues", "The Fat Angel", "The Trip", "Celeste", "Three Kingfishers", and the funky funky "Season Of The Witch"!

DonovanWear Your Love Like Heaven (mono pressing) ... LP
Epic/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
One of Donovan's greatest albums – and in the original mono mix, too! Wear Your Love Like Heaven is a perfect blend of pop psychedelia – complicated little songs that sum more in a short space than some of Donovan's contemporaries could do in a single album side. Nearly every cut on here is a tiny little 3 minute gem – with a sunny and accessible psych folk vibe – but that doesn't overshadow the deeper, more complex and adventurous arrangements underneath. Classic! Tunes include "There Was A Time", "Sun", "The Land Of Doesn't Have To Be", "Wear Your Love Like Heaven", "Little Boy In Corduroy", and "Mad John's Escape". LP, Vinyl record album

Epic, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $14.99
A pretty hip one from a young Dave Grusin – working here as an already-accomplished pianist, in a swinging trio with Milt Hinton on bass and Don Lamond on drums. The basis of the material is the score to the obscure but delightful Broadway show Subways Are For Sleeping – one of the hipper entries on The Great White Way, and the source of many great tunes that are turned into jazz numbers by the trio. Titles include "Ride Through The Night", "I'm Just Taking My Time", "Now I Have Someone", "Comes Once In A Lifetime", "Who Knows What Might Have Been?", and "Getting Married". LP, Vinyl record album

Dan HicksDan Hicks & His Hot Licks – Original Recordings ... LP
Epic, 1969. Near Mint- ... $7.99
The debut album from Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks – a brilliant little set, and quite possibly the truest realization of his subtle acoustic genius! The sound here is free from cliches that later got in the way with Hicks – and the album's a refreshing return to roots, but without any of the too-posturing modes of other groups like this from the time! Hicks keeps things real cool here – very subtle, and quite spare at times – with elements of acoustic swing, bluegrass, and country all bubbling underneath – but an overall execution that's somewhat focused and urbane. There's none of the too old-timey moments you might expect – and if anything, we're impressed at how freshly contemporary a bunch of acoustic hippies can sound here! Titles include "Slow Movin", "I Scare Myself", "Canned Music", "How Can I Miss You When You Won't Go Away", "It's Bad Grammar Baby", and "Jukie's Ball". LP, Vinyl record album

An excellent collection of early work recorded under Johnny Hodges' name in the early years – sessions from 1938 and 1939 that were originally issued on 78s, but presented here in a classic Columbia LP! The tracks are a great assortment of small group numbers that focus on Hodges' tremendous tone on alto sax – recorded with Ellingtonian players that include the Duke himself, as well as Cootie Williams on trumpet, Harry Carney on reeds, Lawrence Brown on trombone, and Billy Taylor on piano. The set features 16 tracks in all – and titles include "Empty Ballroom Blues", "Jeep's Blues", "Good Gal Blues", "Skunk Hollow Blues", "Hodge Podge", and "Rent Party Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Epic, Late 30s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $7.99
An excellent album that features late 30s recordings by some of Duke Ellington's most famous sidemen! The groups on most of these are fairly similar – mostly small group sessions from the larger Ellington outfit – pulled out in ways that give a strong focus on the solo talents of the session leader – and as with other packages in this series, the fidelity is much better than the original singles, and accompanied with full notes on the music! Titles include "Rexatious" and "Lazy Man's Shuffle" by Rex Stewart; "Echoes Of Harlem", "Swing Pan Alley", and "I Can't Believe You're In Love With Me" by Cootie Williams; "The Rabbit's Jump", "Pyramid", and "Jitterbug's Lullaby" by Johnny Hodges; and "Caravan" and "Stompy Jones" by Barney Bigard.

Nice fusiony jazz done with soul and airy atmophere by Paul Horn – including some choice covers, and sounds that range from fusiony jazz with a little bit of funk and more lilting numbers lifted by flute and wordless vocals! Horn has a tendency to go head first into a more new agey vibe, but here we get a more grounded approach with more soul and bits of funk in the bass, keys & percussion. The players include Larry Carlton, Joe Sample and Tom Scott. Includes a nice takes on a trio of Stevie Wonder numbers: "Too High", "Visions" and "Living For The City", Joni Mitchell's "Blue" and "Chelsea Morning" (the former featuring some vocals and keyboards by Joni), plus "High Tide"., "Long Time Gone", "Song With No Words" and "Dida".

New Michael JacksonXscape (180 gram vinyl with download) ... LP
Epic, 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99 19.98
Some of the best work we've heard from Michael Jackson in years – even though the set brings together lost recordings from the many years of Michael's career! The range of sounds here is really wonderful, and the performances are surprisingly great – moments that somehow never found their way onto Jackson's albums for Columbia and Sony, and which really stand out with a special feel because of that – partly due to the help from the extra contemporary producers who helped finish off the work for release. The set begins with "Love Never Felt So Good" – a killer number with a late 70s vibe that puts it right up there with the classic Off The Wall album – and other cuts include the sexy, slinky "Chicago", the cool remake of an old America song titled "A Place With No Name", and the tracks "Slave To The Rhythm", "Loving You", "Do You Know Where Your Children Are", and "Xscape".

A heavy groove and a heady title that points the way towards Michael Jackson's soon-to-be legendary solo career – all served up in a batch of tracks that resonate nicely with the Off The Wall groove! The sound here really isn't disco or club, but it's a nicely upbeat groove that shows The Jacksons at the top of their game – tightly stepping and often highly rhythmic – and striking a great balance between strong lead vocals and some of the sweeter harmonies that got them going in the past. Titles include the sublime groovers "Blame It On The Boogie" and "Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground)", plus great sleepers like "All Night Dancin", "Bless His Soul", "Things I Do For You" and "That's What You Get For Being Polite".

KrystolGetting' Ready ... LP
Epic, 1984. Very Good+ ... $11.99
An 80s girl group classic from Krystol – the debut album from this tight quartet who really seem to rise to the challenge of the album's polish! Production is quite tight – handled by Leon Sylvers III, and a few others, in that west coast Sylvers mode of the time – but the girls have a way of stepping out with their own sort of feeling – harmonizing, switching leads, and even trading lines that really give us a feel for the character of each member of the group – singers Tina Scott, Roberta Steiger, Karon Floyd, and Dee Marie Warren. There's definitely a vibe here that prefaces lots of other female group soul to come – and titles include "Obsession", "Same Place Same Time", "You're The One For Me", "Nobody's Gonna Get This Lovin But You", "You Ask Too Much", "Acrobat", "After The Dance Is Through", and "Information 411".

New Webster LewisLet Me Be The One ... LP
Epic, 1981. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A jazzy soul masterpiece from Webster Lewis – light years away from the rougher funk he cut at the start of the 70s! The album's beautifully put together – almost perfect at all points, at a level that we'd rank right up there with the best work by Leroy Hutson, Roy Ayers, or other contemporary maestros in the studio. Unlike some of the more commercial artists of his generation – who also came to soul through jazz – Webster doesn't push the hooks too hard, nor try too much for a hit. And instead, he's more than happy to stay in his own righteous space – with a sound that's smooth, but never slick – tight, but not uptight. He's got some great help on the record – including keyboards from Herbie Hancock and Skip Scarborough, guitar from David T Walker, and percussion from Willie Bobo – all of whom keep things cool. Vocals are handled by a number of singers, including Webster himself – and titles include "Bout The Love", "Let Me Be The One", "Love Won't Harm No One", "El Bobo", "Kemo Kemo", "A Quiet Thing", and "Flying High".

MtumeKiss This World Goodbye ... LP
Epic, 1978. Very Good ... $14.99
An early crossover set from Mtume – one that still holds onto some of the elements first forged in the spiritual jazz underground of the early 70s, yet one that also starts to showcase more of the tighter soul groove he'd burst into prominence in the early 80s! The blend is a great one, and makes the album one of Mtume's most compelling records – as even amidst some of the more grooving numbers, there's some great offbeat elements at work too – almost putting the record in the territory of work by Roy Ayers or Edwin Birdsong. The mighty Hubert Eaves contributes lots of great keyboards to the record, and famous partner Reggie Lucas plays guitar – while Mtume himself sings along with his percussion, and also gets some female vocal help from Tawatha. Titles include the sublime "The Closer I Get To You" – plus "Just Funnin", "Kiss This World Goodbye", "Love Lock", "Metal Flake Mind", and "This Is Your World". LP, Vinyl record album

MtumeTheater Of The Mind ... LP
Epic, 1986. New Copy (reissue)... $4.99
A great little album from James Mtume – a bit more complicated and righteous than some of his previous albums on Epic, and with a real mix of styles that works nicely together! The album starts off with "Theme For Theater Of The Mind", a sort of 80s take on the spiritual/political soul jazz sound of the 70s – and a cut that really sets the mood for the album. The record features 80s funk numbers like "I Don't Believe You Heard Me", which is a tribute to James Brown, "New Face Deli", and "POP Generation", which was a bit of a hit. It's also got some great smooth quiet storm numbers – like a remake of Bootsy's "I'd Rather Be With You", and the slinky late night number "Body & Soul (Take Me)". And the extended guitar-jamming "Deep Freeze", which features a "rap-a-song" part! LP, Vinyl record album

Great early work from Billy Ocean – a smooth album of understated groovers, all done in a style that's nicely retrained, and which places a good focus on Billy's great vocals! Most of the record skips along in a warm mellow groove – never too over the top, and in a way that makes us wish he would have kept on this track for years to come!

Epic, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
The second album from Shuggie Otis – a wild and wooly batch of grooves that really stretches out the sound from the first! Shuggie's got much more of a hand in the arrangements here – and the tunes are grooving in a sweet blend of funk, rock, and soul – really drenched in the best cross-cultural influences going down on the west coast scene of the time – a kind of color-blind quest for the groove that comes across with a really righteous power! Tracks include the original version of "Strawberry Letter 23" – plus the cuts "Ice Cold Daydream", "Freedom Flight", "Sweet Thang", "Purple", and "Me & My Woman". LP, Vinyl record album

New Shuggie OtisHere Comes Shuggie Otis (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Epic, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
A classic album of bluesy funk – one that features the guitar of Johnny Otis' young son Shuggie, in a slightly tighter setting than he'd been getting on some of Johnny's own LPs! Shuggie here is still very much under the guidance of his dad – working in a mode that really emphasizes the fuzzier side of his guitar, in a style that was clearly an attempt to hook Shuggie up with the Hendrix audience. Not that that's a problem, though – as the record also features some stone funky playing too, as well as organ work by Leon Haywood, sax by Preston Love, and some other great studio work by members of The Crusaders! Tracks include "Hurricane", "Shuggie's Boogie", "Bootie Cooler", "Funky Thithee" and "The Hawks". LP, Vinyl record album

New Shuggie OtisInspiration Information (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Epic, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
An insanely wonderful album! Shuggie Otis is the son of Johnny Otis – the LA R&B maestro who was moving heavily into funk at the end of the 60s – and he has this tripped out, super-dope guitar style that he played to strong effect on Johnny's albums of the late 60s and early 70s, and on his first two solo albums, which were kind of bluesy in tone. For this album, though, he shocked the world by moving into a stripped-down mode that pairs his guitar with spare drum machine rhythms, flanged-out deeply soulful vocals, and one of the most laidback conceptions of funk you'll ever hear. The album's a landmark – one of those gems that's unlike anything else you can think of, but which will redefine your concept of what you want in a record for years to come. Every track's a winner – and the whole thing's a perfectly unified batch of tunes that includes instant classics like "Inspiration Information", "Island Letter", "Aht Uh Mi Hed", "XL 30", and "Rainy Day".

Quadron steps up the bigs with Avalanche – an impeccable second album and first to be co-released Epic Records – and as much as we appreciated their earlier album on Plug Research, this really is an epic-level creative leap forward for the duo! They're still working mix of electro and hip hop soul steeped production by Robin Hannibal, fronted beautifully by the soulful vocals of Coco O, and last, but not least, and great jointly-written songs. It's just bigger and better now. You can hear innovative pop soul influences from the 80s onward in their style, but they put it together in way that's all their own. We'd love it if they took over the mainstream with this record. It's that good!

Legacy/Epic, 1992. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 19.98
The classic agit-rap-rock debut of Rage Against The Machine – with the most fiery political lyricism and imagery of any massively popular record of its time – and as great of a pairing of revolutionary rap and heavy guitars as there ever was! It's hard to imagine now, but there were very few straight up rap rock bands before Rage Against The Machine. Hard rock breaks were ample, of course, but straight up rap rock bands were pretty scarce, pre-Rage. Rage Against The Machine's pop culture revolution was as massive as the social and political revolution that their songs called for! Includes "Bombtrack", "Killing In The Name", "Take The Power Back", "Settle For Nothing", "Bullet In The Head", "Know Your Enemy", "Wake Up", "Fistful Of Steel", "Township Rebellion" and "Freedom".

Sly & The Family StoneDance To The Music ... LP
Epic, 1968. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Classic funkiness from Sly & The Family Stone – an album that really pushed them to the top of their game, and exploded on the late 60s scene like a righteous funky bomb! The title cut's a mega-hit that you'll recognize right away – but the whole album's great, and is filled with the simple, joyous energy that made Sly's groove one of the freshest of his generation – and which helped foist all the great work going on in the 60s underground firmly into the light of a much wider mainstream audience. The messages are subtle here, but the group are already doing their part to change the world bit by bit – and the funky rhythms at the bottom assure that they'll be doing it ass by ass on the dancefloor! Titles include "Dance to The Music", "Ride The Rhythm", "Higher", "Don't Burn Baby", and the 12 minute "Dance To The Medley", with the groovy "Music Lover" passage! LP, Vinyl record album

Sly & The Family StoneFresh ... LP
Epic, 1973. Sealed Gatefold ... $38.99
Sly's leaping into the air on the cover of this one – and for good reason too, given the overall groove of the set! The album's a bit more stripped-down and upbeat than the previous few – almost more of a return to the simple funky style of the first albums, but with a slightly more electric sound than before – especially in the keyboards, which almost slide into the mix here with a Stevie Wonder-like quality. The electricity bubbles and brews wonderfully at the bottom of the rhythms – charging things up a bit, but still hanging back with a super-cool, laidback quality that few other groups could muster! There's a great sense of balance here that's brilliant – and which makes the album one of Sly's undisputed masterpieces from the Columbia years. Titles include the incredible "If You Want Me To Stay" – one of our favorite Sly Stone cuts ever – plus "Keep on Dancin", "Babies Making Babies", "Que Sera Sera", "If It Were Left Up To Me", "In Time", and "Let Me Have It All".

Hard to find a stronger early album by Sly – as this one has him still funking hard, but also getting his soul bag together a bit more, hitting some really righteous vibes that mix together politics and partying in an incredibly seductive way. The album's filled with anthemic numbers like "Sing A Simple Song", "Stand", "Don't Call Me N_gger Whitey", and "Everyday People" – classic crossover material for the heady crowd of the late 60s – and it also includes a very cool 13 minute track called "Sex Machine", which is a messed-up stoner funk number that shows Sly's ties to the Fillmore freakout scene!

Three DegreesStanding Up For Love ... LP
Epic, 1977. Very Good+ ... $0.99
A sweet late 70s set from The Three Degrees – who've moved on over to CBS/Epic after their hot streak at Philly International – with a bit more of an expansive sound than usual! They're still working in a core Philly mode with recording at Sigma Sound and arrangements by Richard Rome – but also with tunes that hit a growing range of more sophisticated, adult-oriented themes. The trio are clearly out to show that they're not just a dancefloor act here – as the album features some sensitive ballads – and those are done beautifully! The Three Degrees are Sheila Ferguson, Valerie Holiday and the returning Helen Scott on this relatively overlooked, though solid record – which includes the slightly funky "Macaroni Man", plus "People With Feeling", "What I Did For Love", "We're All Alone", "Gee Baby", "Standing Up For Love", and "In Love We Grow" and "Just Leave Me Alone". 3 LP, Vinyl record album

The music for Casanova 70 is oddly not credited on the album – but features some excellent jazzy tunes, really swinging with lots of nice horn parts – and a few especially nice numbers that use electric harpsichord and have a very mod 60s feel! Darling is a British film with mellower work – larger orchestrations by John Dankworth – and Marriage Italian Style moves back into the realm of the groovy with a few nice numbers by Armando Trovajoli.

The rare mono mix of Hurdy Gurdy Man – easily one of the headiest Donovan albums of the 60s – a record that moves past the simple psychedelic pop of earlier hits, and into a range of mind-expanding themes and styles! There's a cerebral quality here that seems to take hold even on the simpler, catchier tunes – a deeply introspective approach that has Donovan working in a world that's really all his own – less concerned with hit singles, and more focused on a personal journey in music, one that ties together many strands of music borrowed from Celtic, West Indian, jazz, and folk sources. Arrangers are John Cameron and John Paul Jones – and titles include "Get Thy Bearings", "Peregrine", "The Entertaining Of A Shy Girl", "West Indian Lady", "Jennifer Juniper", "Tangier", "The River Song", "The Sun Is A Very Magic Fellow", and "Hi It's Been A Long Time".
