Ashford & SimpsonStay Free ... LP
Warner, 1979. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Great stuff! From Motown songwriters to world-class superstars, the trip was a well-deserved one for Valerie Simpson and Nick Ashford – and this album's perhaps their crowning achievement in sophisticated club soul! The record's got a great groove that offers a more soulful version of disco than most of the competing albums on major labels at the time – a perfect summation of the care and craft that Ashford & Simpson had always put into their music right from the start! The pair handle all production on the record, and also contributed all the songs too – and the whole thing's so wonderfully tight, right, and on the money, the album soars to the top even before the vocals come into the mix. Titles include more than a few club classics, like "Found A Cure", "Stay Free", and "Nobody Knows" – plus the cuts "Dance Forever", "Crazy", "Follow Your Heart", and "Finally Got To Me".

Beach BoysSummer Days & Summer Nights ... LP
Capitol, 1965. Very Good- ... $8.99
A mixed bag record, but with some really wonderful moments – and essential listening as a lead-up to the Pet Sounds album to follow! There's a mix of styles here – some rough rocking numbers that are a bit stiff, mixed with some really amazing tunes that get at Brian Wilson's new sensitivities – tunes like "Girl Don't Tell Me", "You're So Good To Me", "Summer Means New Love", and "Let Him Run Wild" – all complicated in subtle ways, with a great sense of tension underneath. Other tracks include "Help Me Rhonda (45 single version)", "California Girls", "I'm Bugged At My Old Man", and "Amusement Parks USA". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label mono pressing. Cover has some wear and a split spine, with some splitting and tape on the other seams. Label has the remnants of a sticker.)

BeatlesBeatles – On Air – Live At The BBC Vol 2 ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. New Copy 3 LPs Gatefold ... $39.99 59.98
Just when you thought your Beatles collection couldn't get any bigger – out comes this amazing set with 37 tracks that have never been released before! As you might guess from the cover image, the focus here is on the early years of the Fab Four – and the package features rare BBC performances from 1962 to 1965 – offering up a much more vivid portrait of the initial years of The Beatles than just their studio albums. There's plenty of unique takes on famous tunes, plus some killer covers, and a few unusual entries too – and the package also features a number of spoken passages, with all the charm we've come to expect from the group in their press and film appearances of the time. Titles include "Beautiful Dreamer", "I'm Talking About You", "Glad All Over", "Lucille", "Anna", "Lend Me Your Comb", "Devil In Her Heart", "Sure To Fall", "Twist & Shout", "I'll Follow The Sun", "There's A Place", "From Me To You", "Happy Birthday Dear Saturday Club", "Memphis Tennessee", "Misery", "The Hippy Hippy Shake", and "I Got A Woman" – plus bonus interview tracks with each member too!

Cee-LoCee-Lo Green And His Perfect Imperfections ... LP
Arista, 2002. Very Good+ 2LP ... $11.99
Cee-Lo Green gits up and gets out on his own – without the heavy burden of too many guest appearances – and the result may be the best album to come out of the Dirty South in quite a while! Cee-Lo's raspy, cotton-mouthed speak & sing style has always been one of the strongest attributes of the Goodie crew, and it's great to hear it stretched out over a fully-realized LP that is worthy of his unique talents. Sweaty, deeply funky, and a bit similar to the kind of material we used to expect from the Native Tongues at their strongest, but with Cee-Lo's unmistakable Cameo inspired croon out front. Includes "Bad Mutha", "Big Ole Words (Damn), "Closet Freak", "Live (Right Now)", "El Dorado Sunrise", "A Thug's Concern", "One For The Road", "Let Him Sing If He Wants To (Break)", "Suga Baby" featuring Big Gipp and Backbone, "Gettin' Grown", "Bass Head Jazz", "Microhard" featuring Jahalla and Kirland Underwater, "Under The Influence", "(Follow Me)", "Medieval Times (Great Pretender)", "Country Love", "Awful Thing", "Maintenance Man (Break)" "Young Man (Sierra's Song)", and "Well Damn, Lo (Break)".

New Celi Bee & The Buzzy BunchCeli Bee & The Buzzy Bunch ... LP
APA, 1977. Very Good ... $1.99
A sweet campy disco classic – and a record that's been close to our hearts for years! Celi Bee may have had white hair and a hokey kind of look, but she won us forever with her incredible "Superman" – a five minute homage to the man in red and blue, and the leadoff track on this debut set! "Superman" is a sweet disco number with lots of strings, heavy rhythms at the bottom, and an erotic vocal that seems to offer the big guy more action than Lois Lane ever did. The rest of the tracks follow in a similar sleaze disco mode, and titles include "Smile", "It's Sad", "Hurt Me Hurt Me", "One Love", and "Closer Closer". LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Cuba SextetBang! Bang! Push! Push! Push! ... LP
Tico, 1966. Very Good+ ... $38.99
A Latin classic from the word "bang"! This album was the one that busted Joe Cuba out of the Latin ghetto – into the sound of 60s soul, early funk, and beyond. The record's a stone winner – filled with boogaloo tracks delivered by Joe's firey young sextet, a killer ensemble that was setting the Latin world on its ear at the time. The title track – "Bang Bang" – is one of those tracks that you'll recognize from a million references, but which never sounds as good as it does on this impeccable version from Joe. The whole album follows in a similar suit – blending Latin, jazz, and soul with effortless ease – shifting between English and Spanish lyrics in a genre-busting style that really captures all the freshness of the era. The whole thing's great, and titles include "Asi Soy", "Alafia", "Triste", "Mujer Divina", "Oh Yeah", "Sock It To Me", and the "Bang Bang" follow-up, "Push, Push, Push". Great, hard, and a heck of a lot of fun! LP, Vinyl record album

D TrainMiracles Of The Heart (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1986. Used ... $8.99
James D-Train Williams' first album for a major label – and a really great follow-up to the indie success of his initial recordings for Prelude Records! The style here is very similar to the clubby grooves of D-Train's earlier sides – thanks to strong keyboards, production, and songwriting help from Hubert Eaves – the jazzy talent who helped give Williams' his trademark sound! Instrumentation veers slightly more towards mainstream 80s soul at times, but the Eaves' sound is still very firmly in place here – and titles include the groovers "Oh How I Love You (Girl)", "Misunderstanding", and "Let Me Love You" – plus "You Are Everything", "I Got Your Number", "Stand Up & Fight", and "Miracle Of The Heart". CD features some great bonus ttracks – "Oh How I Love You (12" mix)", "You Are Everything (acapella)", "Misunderstanding (12" mix)", "Misunderstanding (acapella & house dub)", "Let Me Love You (12" mix)", and "Let Me Love You (dub)".

George DukeGuardian Of The Light (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus track) ... CD
Epic (Japan), 1983. New Copy Gatefold ... $26.99
A funky concept album from George Duke – and one that's filled with some mighty nice grooves! Guardians Of The Light is a full-on "musical fantasy" – with the story line laid out in the liner notes, yet still a bit difficult to follow – but we can't fault him for that when it's done in his masterful R&B-fusion-funk approach! George sings on all cuts, but he also gets some stellar vocal assistance from Jeffrey Osborne, Portia Griffin, and Patti Austin. The record also has some surprisingly sweet mellow moments that bring a deeper level of spacey soul to the out-there concept – those laidback lines that George could always do better than anyone else! Titles include "Born To Love You", "You Are The Light", "Reach Out", "Give Me Your Love", "Stand", "Soon", and "Fly Away". Also includes a bonus track – "Reach Out (12" single)". CD

Ed OG & Da BulldogsLife Of A Kid In The Ghetto ... LP
Polygram, 1991. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Ed OG's nice debut, with a slightly jazzy touch on the production and literate, intelligent lyrics. We really couldn't get with "Bug A Boo", but besides that, this first LP's solid from start to finish, from the days when that wasn't so uncommon. Drop the needle on this and head back in time to a day when backpacker wasn't necessarily a derogatory term, a beat wasn't a straight loop of a common sample, and rhyme skills included being able to follow the beat, which was typically at least a little bit funky. With the now classic "Be A Father To Your Child", plus standout tracks like "I'm Different", "Speak Upon It", "I Got To Have It" and "Life Of A Kid In The Ghetto". 12 tracks in all, also includes "Gotta Have Money", "Feel Like A Nut", "She Said It Was Great", "Dedicated To The Right Wingers", 'Let ME Tickle Your Fancy" and "Stop (Think For A Moment)".

New Lee Fields & The ExpressionsMy World ... CD
Truth & Soul, 2009. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
One of the best new soul records we've heard in years – a tremendous accomplishment for the mighty Lee Fields, and a set that's quite different than any of his other work! We've always loved Lee's funk and deep soul sides, but this album's something new altogether – almost done in the hard-edge, downtempo mode of the east coast harmony scene of the late 60s and early 70s – like some of the best group soul work coming out of New Jersey or Philly, with some super-dope production and instrumentation that's really amazing! The grooves follow strongly in the same laidback style as recent El Michels work – no surprise, given the El Michels connection to the music – with beats that are hard, but slow – and instrumentation that's funky, but in a mellow sort of way. Lee's vocals are as deep as ever – very much trained in the James Brown tradition, but turned here towards a really unique groove that makes us completely reevaluate his talents – an amazing achievement not just for Fields, but also for the whole Truth & Soul/El Michels crew! An instant classic – with tracks that include "My World", "Ladies", "Expressions Theme", "Honey Dove", "Money I$ King", "Love Comes & Goes", "Do You Love Me", and "Last Ride". CD

Aretha FranklinSoul Sister/Take It Like You Give It ... CD
Columbia/American Beat, 1966/1967. Used ... $8.99
Aretha Franklin's last 2 Columbia albums – back to back on a single CD! Soul Sister is a later date for Columbia Records that hints a bit at the sounds to come on Atlantic! Backings are by Robert Mersey and Belford Hendricks – both of whom use some relatively full orchestrations and occasional backing vocals – in ways that almost translate a 60s country soul aesthetic to a leaner, cleaner sound for Aretha's strong vocals. Franklin, as always, is great – the kind of singer that really illuminates any tune she gets – even familiar numbers that seem to take on new life in her hands. The material is a bit deeper-digging than before on Columbia – less covers, and more tunes that are well-suited to Aretha's sensibilities – including a few penned by Van McCoy or Hendricks. Titles include "Until You Were Gone", "Follow Your Heart", "A Mother's Love", "I'm Losing You", "Take A Look", and "Can't You See Me". On Take It Like You Give It, Franklin steps out with even more of a hard soul style than before – in a record that's a great close to her early years on Columbia Records! Arrangements are by Belford Hendricks and Clyde Otis – the latter of whom is clearly responsible for the deepening sound of Franklin's music here – although Hendricks' work also sounds pretty great too, with a leaner feel than before. Franklin's vocals really sparkle nicely on the set – sometimes supported with backing singers, sometimes all out on their own – always in that iconic style that inspired whole generation of female soul singers. Titles include "A Little Bit Of Soul", "Only The One You Love", "Deeper", "Remember Me", "Land Of Dreams", "Lee Cross", "I May Never Get To Heaven", and "Take It Like You Give It". CD

Roy C HammondMore Sex & More Soul ... CD
Collectables, 1977. Used ... $11.99
Classic 70s southern soul from Roy C – a brilliant follow-up to his excellent Sex & Soul album, but a great little record that more than stands on its own! Although Roy's roots are in New York City, his sound here is one that echoes strongly with the changes going on down in the Memphis, Jackson, and Miami soul scenes at the time – an approach to southern soul that still maintains the rootsiness of the vocals, yet which wraps them up in a warmer, more adult sort of mode – almost inspired by the work of Al Green, but a bit more down home. Titles include "From The Outside Looking In", "Sure Nuff In Love With You", "After Loving You", "Show Me Love, I'll Show You Pain", and "Great Great Grandson Of A Slave". CD features 4 bonus tracks too – "Love Me Till Tomorrow Comes", "Virgin Girl", "Don't Stop Short Of Satisfaction", and "Every Woman Has A Right". CD

Thelma Houston & Jerry ButlerThelma & Jerry/Two To One (with bonus track) ... CD
Motown/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1977/1978. New Copy ... $14.99
Both of Thelma Houston & Jerry Butler's duo records for Motown – back-to-back in a single set! 1977's Thelma & Jerry is up first – and it's a truly sweet pairing of the 2 legendary voices – tempering the more crossover disco mode that Thelma was working so strongly in the mid-to-late 70s just a bit, but still done with a fairly slick, nice and warm sound. The vocal chemistry with Jerry is pretty wonderful, too! Butler and Hal Davis take partial credit for production and tracks include a great, soul style medley of the pop hits "If You Leave Me Now/Love So Right", "Only The Beginning", Stevie Wonder's "Joy Inside My Tears", "Let's Get Together", "It's A Lifetime Thing","I Love You Through Windows" and more. The follow-up Two To One is another gem – this one featuring arrangements by Willie Hutch, Van McCoy, and Terry Woodford. Titles include "Find A Way", "We Owe It To Ourselves", "Never Gonna Get Enough", "If It Would End", "Chicago Send Her Home", and "Don't Pity Me". Also includes the bonus Motown single "Kiss Me Now".

Fantastic soul from JJ – a monster 60s soul talent who's rarely given his due! JJ first struck big with the landmark hit "But It's Alright" – the leadoff track on this album, and a blistering little tune that's awash in scratchy guitars, bouncing bass, and one of the catchiest hooks in 60s soul! Other tracks follow along in a very similar mode – playful, catchy, and shifting easily between a sock-boogaloo groove and a deeper soul style that really lets JJ go to town! Titles include the killer "But It's Alright", plus other groovers like "I Dig Girls", "Boogaloo Baby", "You've Got Me Dizzy", "That Ain't Right", "Come See Me I'm Your Man", and "Ain't Too Proud To Beg"!

Impeccable mid 80s work from the mighty King Kong! Includes "Mash It Up Already", "Move Insane", "Follow Me", "Mix Up", "Trouble Again", "Legal", "Emmanuel Road" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Taj MahalSing A Happy Song – The Warner Brothers Recordings (Music Fuh Ya/Brothers/Evolution/live tracks) ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1976/1977. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99 18.98
A trio of albums from Taj Mahal – and some unreleased live tracks as well! First up is Music Fuh Yah – a sweetly soulful set that has Taj Mahal really trying on some new flavors – yet still keeping things strongly in the bluesy territory of his roots! In addition to the lead vocals and lots of acoustic guitar, the set also features key contributions from Rudy Costa on a range of saxes, plus flute and kalimba too – plus other unusual elements that include steel drums, timbales, and banjo – all of which inflect different moments with freshly playful sounds, and a surprisingly Caribbean vibe at times. Titles include "You Got It", "Sailin", "Truck Driver's Two Step", "Curry", and "The Four Mills Brothers". Brothers is one of the better records that Taj Mahal cut during in the later 70s – probably because it was a soundtrack, and pushed the groove into some interesting places – with Taj's gruff vocals working over some Caribbean rhythms and modern blues, and more smoothed out moments! The latter moments actually creep near or even cross over the line into kind of a fusiony soul feel, with the tightly thumping electric bass and rolling sax, but Taj keeps the overall vibe as uncommonly diverse as his other records for Columbia. Tracks include "Malcolm's Song", "David & Angela", "Night Rider", "Brother's Doin Time", "Free The Brothers", "Love Theme In The Key Of D", and "Funky Butt". Evolution is a well-titled set – given that the record really shows an evolution in the style of Taj Mahal! Some cuts are still in an older bluesy mode, but a few others feature some great backings from Leon Pendarvis – who creates this fuller, soaring sort of style that takes off with plenty of power! The approach is a great way to use Taj's vocals in a richer 70s soul setting – and those cuts are balanced by some more stripped-down numbers that include a few that follow in the recent Mahal use of steel drums. Titles include "Sing A Happy Song", "Lowdown Showdown", "Why You Do Me This Way", "Highnite", and "Salsa De Laventille". 2CD set also features 7 bonus live tracks recorded in Chicago in 1977 – but not issued at the time!

Great stuff from Gary – one of his more obscure albums, and a record dedicated to the signs of the Zodiac! The tracks are a mixture of Gary's usual easy jazz approach – with vibes, whistling, and bossa-style rhythms showing up a lot – plus a few more driving numbers that are more like his arranged work for other players, and which even include some nicely funky tunes! A real gem – lost amidst most of his catalog – possibly because the marketplace wasn't ready for such zodiacary! Titles include "Sad Eyes", "Long Live The King", "Close Your Eyes & Follow Me", "Can't Help Dancing", "Runaway Heart", "Thanks But No Thanks", and "Days Dipped In Dreams". LP, Vinyl record album

New Helen MerrillNearness Of You/You've Got A Date With The Blues ... CD
Phoenix (Spain), 1957/1958/1959. Used ... $9.99
Icy brilliance from a young Helen Merrill – The Nearness Of You – a record that's easily the Mercury equivalent of June Christy's classic work on Capitol or Chris Connor's classics for Bethlehem! Helen's working here with small combo backings on all tracks – carved out with players who include Bobby Jaspar, Bill Evans, Oscar Pettiford, and George Russell – all swinging gently alongside the vocals, but also taking care to shade things in with some of the darker, bluer colors that always worked best for Merrill – and which made her voice echo with a depth that few other singers could match! Titles include "When The Sun Comes Out", "I Remember You", "Summertime", "Let Me Love You", and "All Of You". You've Got A Date With The Blues – maybe our favorite album ever from Merrill – certainly from the early days – and a unique outing cut for MGM's excellent Metrojazz label! The set's got a more laidback sound than Merrill's previous records – and a definite bluesy undercurrent too – one that comes through strongly in the piano and arrangements of Jimmy Jones, and in the tremendous tenor work from Frank Wess – whose playing on the record gives the set a soulful quality we're not used to hearing with Helen! Tunes all follow the theme of the title – but are done in really inventive ways, especially when Wess gets a chance to solo – and titles include "Blues In My Heart", "The Blues", "The Thrill Is Gone", "You've Got A Date With The Blues", "The Meaning Of The Blues", and "Vous M'Ebloussez".

New MiraclesRenaissance/Do It Baby (with bonus track) ... CD
Tamla/Hip-O Select, 1973/1974. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Incredible early-to-mid 70s albums from The Miracles – Renaissance and Do It Baby – plus a bonus Tom Moulton remix! First up, Renaissance truly is one, and proof that the the group could do amazing things away from Smokey Robinson! Of course, they've got a heck of a lot of great help on this set – from some of Motown's best, like Willie Hutch, Fonce Mizell, Freddie Perren, and even Marvin Gaye, who wrote and produced the album's standout track "I Love You Secretly", a stone treasure that's as good as any of Marvin's recordings from the time! The whole set is great, though, filled with wonderful songs that never got their due – and which will make this one stand for years as a treasure to fans of harmony soul! Titles include "I Didn't Realize The Show Was Over", "I Love You Secretly", "I Don't Need No Reason", "Don't Let It End", and "What Is A Heart Good For". The follow-up Do It Baby is another overlooked post-Smokey gem – a beautifully display of Miracles' unmatched soul harmony mastery – on a record that's just about as good as anything they did with Smokey. This one actually reminds us a lot of some of our favorite Philly albums coming out at the same time! Arrangements are handled by James Carmichael, Freddie Perren, and Willie Hutch – and it's heavy with slinky smooth soul groovers like "Do It Baby", "You Are Love", "What Is A Heart Good For", and "Give Me Just Another Day", one of a few great cuts on the record written by Leon Ware! This much needed Hip-O Select package includes a bonus track, too: Tom Moulton's mix of "Do It Baby" – which extends that classic cut to more than 7 minutes of dancefloor soul greatness! CD

Timbaland & MagooUnder Construction Part II ... CD
Universal, 2003. Used ... $1.99
So we'd guess by the title to this latest Timbo effort that it's meant as a follow up to the last Missy Elliott album, and in a lot of ways it is. As with earlier Tim & Magoo efforts, you're not getting this one for lyrical finesse, but the bouncing beats, which get stripped down to the bare essentials this go 'round, and that's nothing to wince at either. Tim revisits a few of his hotter tracks from this past summer, but if the ubiquity of the "Jump Off" is any indication, you can bet this one'll be bumpin' from trunks for some time to come. Not too many guest spots here, just a couple cameos from Bubba Sparxx and Missy Elliott, with 16 tracks in all, including "Cop That S**t", "Shenanigans", 'That S**t Ain't Gonna Work", "Don't Make Me Take It There", "Indian Flute", "Naughty Eye", "N 2 Da Music", "Throwback" and "Hold Cuts".

Steady Sounds/Peoples Potential, Late 70s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy ... $9.99
Messed-up electronic rock from Trash Company – a group who really live up to their name with the noisy, grubby sounds in this set! The music is somewhere between dark post-punk work from the early 80s, and some of the lower-fi indie moments of the decade to follow – yet together, the tracks definitely have a really unique feel – almost as if Suicide recorded for K Records, or an aging Neu suddenly found themselves working in the Portland scene! Given the vintage of most of these cuts, and the overlooked locale in which they were recorded, the whole thing's a definite musical discovery – one with a feel that definitely lives up to the promise of our references here. Titles include "He's Only A Man", "She", "Little Black Bag", "Come To Me Softly", "No Regrets", "Electra Glide", "Ow", and "I'll Slide Away". LP, Vinyl record album

James WellsMy Claim To Fame/Explosion – Disco Recharge (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Harmless (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99
A pair of lost club classics from James Wells – back to back, with a lot of bonus tracks too! My Claim To Fame is the first album from Chicago soul singer James Wells – an artist with vocals that often run much deeper than some of his disco contemporaries at the time, and which really get a showcase here on some of the longer songs! There's often a lot of disco at the start of the records – long tunes that build the rhythms slowly, then layer in other elements before the vocals – but when James emerges on vocals, things really take off – and the singer is very well suited to the more upbeat backgrounds. Ian Levine – of UK Northern Soul fame – wrote and arranged the set – and titles include "I Guess That's Life", "True Love Is My Destiny", and "That's The Way The Wind Blows". The second album is an Explosion of soul from singer James Wells – and a tight follow-up to his previous disco outing with Ian Levine! Wells has roots in older soul styles than disco – and really makes his presence felt here on some of the album's best tracks – even amidst the sometimes stronger focus on high-stepping rhythms, percussion jams, and other instrumentation. Tracks include "Explosion", "More To Me Than Meets The Eye", "Double Dose Of Love", "There's Nothing Sweeter Than Success", and "A Case Of Mistaken Identity". CD features loads of bonus tracks – not just remixes, but a 12 completely different numbers, including a few duets with Susen Wells. Titles include "RSVP", "Baby I'm Still The Same Man", "All I Ever Need Is Music", "No Cure For Me", "Never Let Go", "My Days Are Numbered", "Great Minds Think Alike", and "Mirror Image". CD

Warner, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
The last album recorded by Charles Wright with the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band – and a set that's even more stretched out and trippy than their other albums! Gone are the tight short cuts of earlier days, and in their place are longer messed-up funky numbers that have more of a jamming party feel – tunes that let the whole group open up in a relaxed and soulful mode that must have been plenty great to see happening live in the studio! Charles sings in a style that mixes straighter soul with "crazy man" kind of lyrics – of the sort that he later sang on his own LPs – and the album features the wicked tune "Express Yourself II", a great follow-up to the first one, done in a more open-styled way, but still with the same hook and rhythm! Other tracks include "Just To Settle My Nerves", "Let's Make Love Not War", "What Can You Bring Me?", "Your Love", and "You're So Beautiful". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousNew Orleans Funk – The Original Sound Of Funk Vol 2 – Second Line Strut ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
An incredible follow up to the first New Orleans Funk compilation on Soul Jazz – even harder-hitting than the first, and filled with funky rare gems! This set took nearly a decade to follow the first, but it's been well worth the wait – and the crew at Soul Jazz have clearly used all that time to dig way past the obvious on the New Orleans scene, and come up with a really incredible batch of all-funky cuts all the way through! Even if you've got a dozen other New Orleans funk collections in your collection, you'll find plenty here to win you over – as the package goes out of its way to pull cuts from rare singles and under-reissued material – then wraps the whole thing up with the usual extra-thorough Soul Jazz approach to liner notes and details. And while some of the names are familiar here, they're nicely interspersed with lesser-known folks who keep things fresh – making for a winning lineup that really sets a new standard for this sort of set. Titles include "The Twitch" by Danny White, "Street Parade" by Earl King, "Four Corners" by Lee Dorsey, "Hot Tamales" by The Prime Mates, "Tequila" by Allen Toussaint, "Right Place Wrong Time" by Ray J, "Gossip" by Cyril Neville, "Hold On Help Is On The Way" by G Davis & R Tyler, "Funky Belly" by Warren Lee, "I'm Mr Big Stuff" by Jimmy Hicks, "The Rubber Band" by Eddie Bo, "12 Red Roses" by Betty Harris, "What Do You See In Her" by Inell Young, "You Keep Me Hanging On" by Bonnie & Sheila, "Yeah You're Right You Know You're Right" by The Gaturs, "The Tap" by Porgy Jones, and "Bo Diddley" by Art Neville.

VariousSpirit Of Philadelphia 2 ... CD
Expansion (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $10.99
A tremendous follow up to the first Spirit Of Philadelphia collection – released many years after that seminal set, and with an even farther-reaching selection of music! The first Spirit set focused on the best mellow and midtempo soul efforts of the Philly International label – but this one expands the groove even more to show the wide influence that Gamble & Huff had on the sound of Philly soul on other labels – especially the major labels, who'd begun following the indie lead in their productions by the mid 70s. There's a fair bit of work here by bigger names at the time, but all of it's got a stone Philly sound – and is either work by artists who first sprung out of the Philly scene directly, or others from different points around the country, and who'd made a trip to Philly in the 70s to record in a hipper groove! Titles include "Do You Remember Yesterday" by New York City, "Falling In Love With You" by Jimmy Ruffin, "It's Not What You Got" by Eddie Kendricks, "We Got Love" by Ben E King, "Don't Take Your Love" by The Whispers, "Can't Accept The Fact" by Gateway, "Straighten It Out" by Anglo-Saxon Brown, "Midnight Lady" by David Morris, "You Make Me Feel So Good Baby" by The Temprees, "It's Love" by The Persuaders, "In Love Again" by The Joneses, "Let's Go All The Way Down" by Brenda & The Tabulations, "Walk Away From Love" by Jackie Moore, "I Don't Have Time To Worry" by Little Anthony & The Imperials, and "That's What Love Does" by Vince Montana & The Philly Sound Orchestra.

VariousSweet Dreams – Where Country Meets Soul Vol 2 – 23 Exceptional Examples Of How Blurred The Line That Separates Country & Soul Music Can Be ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Great sounds from a very special place – that magical meeting point where country meets soul – a spot that was crossed surprisingly often in the southern soul scene of the 60s and 70s! The set's a great follow-up to the excellent first volume – and really does a wonderful job of showing the way that a country ethos could work equally well in soul music – with results that will definitely have you re-thinking your ideas of cultural separation in the south. Much of the work is from that great late 60s/early 70s point when the country soul genre was really maturing – moving past the earlier moments of Ray Charles or Brook Benton, and using the style to express a new level of lyrical sophistication – especially in songs of love lost. Titles include "Sweet Music Man" by Millie Jackson, "Don't You Ever Get Tired" by Bettye Swann, "I Hate You" by Bobby Bland, "Statue Of A Fool" by David Ruffin, "Tennessee Waltz" by Otis Redding, "Bad News" by Clarence Carter, "Sunday Morning Coming Down" by Hank Ballard, "But You Know I Love You" by Sweet Inspirations, "Please Help Me I'm Falling" by William Bell, "Sometimes" by Facts Of Life, "I'll Release You" by Ted Taylor, and "All I Have To Offer" by Eddie James.

Light In The Attic, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99
A second set of grooves from the Seattle scene – and a much-needed follow-up to the first Wheedles Groove compilation! This set picks up where the last one left off – still digging the funk and soul of the 70s, but also following the scene into clubby territory, modern soul, and boogie too – with a range of under-discovered gems that groove right into the mid 80s! Just about all the work here is new to our ears – pulled from obscure indie singles from the city's small labels – and served up in some surprisingly sophisticated styles that match all the poise and class of the best Cali soul of the time. Light In The Attic have done a really wonderful job with the package – deep notes that really match the research that went into the record – but a sense of funk and flair that makes the whole thing way more than just a history project. The grooves are totally great – a really fresh discovery, especially if you dig 80s boogie and club – and tracks include "Don't Lose Your Love" by Don Brown, "Get Off The Phone" by Epicentre, "Trouble In Mind" by Malik Din, "Love One Another" by Frederick Robinson III, "I Don't Wanna Lose Your Love" by Bernadette Bascom, "I'm Through With You" by Romel Westwood, "Holding On" by Unfinished Business, "You Turn Me On (Portland session mix)" by Push, "I Wonder Love" by Seattle Pure Dynamite, "Darlin Oh Darlin" by Steppen Stones, and "Let's Backtrack" by Cold Bold & Together.

Massive modern soul – hand-picked by the UK's Modern Soul Collective with a sweet selection of classics and some especially nice overlooked gems! The groove here is smooth, but never sleepy – upbeat, but not really disco – and instead that great blend of modes that really characterized the modern soul sound of the late 70s and early 80s! The package is designed as a follow-up to the previous No Boundaries collection, but we honestly dig it even more than that one – and the CD features a few more recent cuts mixed in with the older classics too. Titles include "You're Messing Up A Good Thing" by Heywood Cash, "Looks Like Rain" by Main Ingredient, "We Need Love" by Directions Band, "The Magic That You Do" by The Realistics, "Too Many People (Blacksmith dancehall mix)" by Pauline Henry, "Can You Feel My Love" by Khemistry, "I'll Be True" by Cookie Woodson, "Under Construction" by Al Supersonic & The Teenagers, "In The City" by Jesse Gomez & SWB, "Rough Out Here" by The Modulations, "Strip Me Naked" by Love Peace & Happiness, and "Make It Last" by DJ Jazzy Jeff with Ayah.

Funky wonderfulness from Gary Bartz – one of his hip sets from the early 70s recorded with his NTU group – a very righteous blend of soul, jazz, and funky elements! Huber Eaves plays some great electric piano on the record – and so does Bartz, alongside his usual soprano and alto sax – and the wonderful Andy Bey is on vocals, bad-rapping his way through an incredibly positive, powerful batch of tunes. Stafford James plays these nice phat funky basslines – and the album's got kind of a mix of modal jazz and shakey soul – that unusual Gary Bartz sound of the time!

A bit over the top – and the kind of record that might have bankrupted Curtom in its later years! Linda's very much in full-disco mode, singing to long clubby arrangements by Gil Askey that have more strings and less soul than previous efforts. The one saving grace of the album is the cut "Don't Give It Up", a hip follow-up to "Runaway Love", which has a similar bad talkin' approach, with Linda doing a bit of a monologue in the middle. Other tracks include "Let Me Be Your Woman", "Hold Me Close", "Sweet Melodies" and the pairing of "One Of Those Songs" and "Bridge Over Troubled Water", which takes up all of the 2nd disc in the 2LP set.

Bobby Moore & The Rhythm AcesSearching For My Love ... CD
Checker (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Around August 27, 2014
A wonderful album of southern soul – and the only full-length LP cut by Bobby Moore and his long-lived Rhythm Aces combo! The group's the sort that slaved away endlessly in live shows all over the south – playing on their own, or providing extra backup for countless big stars touring through the area. Bobby's on tenor, and the group has some incredibly rich vocal talents – unnamed, but with a group harmony style that's equally at home with sweet ballads or hard stompin party numbers. The latter style is the band's strongest suit, though – with an approach that's somewhere between the hard soul of Sam & Dave and the party grooves of Doug Clark & The Hot Nuts – and like that group, Moore's style was probably forged out of years of playing at beach dances, frat parties, and bar gigs, the real proving ground for a tight combo like this! A great little LP, with a fresh sound throughout – and tracks include "The Hamburger Song", "Follow Me", "Searching For My Love", "Hey, Mr. DJ", "Searching For My Love", "Jenny, Jenny", "Come Back Baby", and "We've Got That". Recorded at Fame in 1966 with Rick Hall, too! CD

New Lee Fields & The ExpressionsMy World ... CD
Truth & Soul, 2009. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best new soul records we've heard in years – a tremendous accomplishment for the mighty Lee Fields, and a set that's quite different than any of his other work! We've always loved Lee's funk and deep soul sides, but this album's something new altogether – almost done in the hard-edge, downtempo mode of the east coast harmony scene of the late 60s and early 70s – like some of the best group soul work coming out of New Jersey or Philly, with some super-dope production and instrumentation that's really amazing! The grooves follow strongly in the same laidback style as recent El Michels work – no surprise, given the El Michels connection to the music – with beats that are hard, but slow – and instrumentation that's funky, but in a mellow sort of way. Lee's vocals are as deep as ever – very much trained in the James Brown tradition, but turned here towards a really unique groove that makes us completely reevaluate his talents – an amazing achievement not just for Fields, but also for the whole Truth & Soul/El Michels crew! An instant classic – with tracks that include "My World", "Ladies", "Expressions Theme", "Honey Dove", "Money I$ King", "Love Comes & Goes", "Do You Love Me", and "Last Ride". CD

Righteous late 60s soul from The Impressions – the group's last album with Curtis Mayfield in the lineup! The sound here follows heavily from the Young Mods and This Is My Country years – a heavier take on the trio's soul stylings than their work over at ABC in the mid 60s – pushed into more heady political territory, yet still informed with an unmatched approach to harmony soul. Arrangements are by Riley Hampton and Gary Slabo, and they've got some great psychedelic soul touches that are a perfect precursor to Curtis Mayfield's solo work to follow on Curtom – a great groove that steps out wonderfully with an undercurrent of funk in the mix. Henry Gibson plays some great congas on the set – again hinting at the Mayfield sound to come – and titles include "Check Out Your Mind", "Madam Mary", "We Must Be In Love", "Only You", "Say You Love Me", "Turn On To Me", "Do You Wanna Win", and "You're Really Something Sadie".

The second half of the album, though, is quite different – mellower numbers that follow through on some of the more personal soul styles that Curtis was laying down on other Curtom albums from the time – a great blend of gentle rhythms, warm instrumentation, and those always-sweet Mayfield vocals – a sound that almost reminds us of some of the best mellow soul of the time from labelmate Leroy Hutson.

Back in the Diana Ross days, the Supremes had paired up with The Temptations on 2 great sets – and now, at a time in the 70s when both The Supremes and The Four Tops were a bit less successful on the charts, it's clear that Motown was trying to find some direction for them both. The approach isn't bad, although a bit forcedly "classy" at times, in a mode that hearkens back more to Motown 60s than some of the better directions both of these groups would take in the 70s – especially The Four Tops.

Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The only full length album we've ever seen from this youthful combo – and a killer set that's gotten plenty of play over the years! Young & Company were an obscure New Jersey group who struck big momentarily with the single "I Like What You're Doing To Me", and got a brief chance to cut this one and only album for Brunswick as a follow-up. The album's an interesting one, because it came at a time when the last-gasping Brunswick was showing a real talent for cutting underground cuts – mostly issued on 12" singles, and rarely drawn out to a full LP like this – but at a level that really makes this album a lost gem! There's kind of a strong roller skating groove on the best cuts – moving along at a good midtempo pace with compressed instrumentation on guitar and keyboards, never too over the top, and definitely not disco. You can hear that to best effect on the big hit "I Like What You're Doing To Me", but the album's got plenty of other nice cuts, like "Strut Your Stuff", "Checking You Out", "Love Me All Night", and "Mellow Mood". CD features two bonus tracks – "I Like What You're Doing To Me (long version)" and "I Like What You're Doing To Me (inst)". CD

New Merle HaggardOkie From Muskogee – Live (2CD version – with Fightin' Side Of Me) ... CD
Capitol, 1969. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
An amazing live document of Hag at his late 60s best! Recorded in – you guessed it – Muskogee, OK in 1969, this excellent 45th Anniversary edition also includes the nearly as great, comparably rare follow-up live album Fightin' Side Of Me, recorded in Philly in 1970. If you've seen Merle Haggard live over the years, you might have gotten the picture that "Okie" is more of a satire of conservatism than an indictment of hippies – but it's powerful anyway – and the album also includes great live versions of a bunch of his best ever songs, including "Mama Tried", "No Hard Times", "In the Arms Of Love", "If I Had Left It Up To You", "White Line Fever", "Blue Rock", "Okie From Muskogee", and a medley of "Swinging Doors", "I'm A Lonesome Fugitive", "Sing Me Back Home", and "Branded Man". Fighting Side Of Me is best known for the reactionary title tune, quite unfortunately, since it's a really amazing document of Haggard and the Strangers at their all time best. Like most of Merle's live shows throughout the years, it's bookended by some great original tunes like "I Take A Lot Of Pride In What I Am" and "Today I Started Loving You Again", plus a travelogue of 20th Century country music – from the spare sadness of Jimmie Rodgers's "T.B. Blues" to the Western swing of "Corrine, Corrina", to Tommy Collins's "When Did Right Become Wrong", Johnny Cash's "Orange Blossom Special", Hank Snow's "I'm Moving On" and well beyond. All of which is to say it's one of the best live country albums ever recorded for a major label! CD

A pair of incredible early Motown albums from Mary Wells – one of the label's first truly great singers – in a great single set from Kent UK! Mary Wells never sounded better than in her Motown years – and 1962's The One Who Really Loves You is key proof of her talents, as it's overflowing with laidback and mellow soul tunes – done in Mary's great blend of bluesy and classy styles! Titles include classics like "Drifting Love", "Strange Love", "The Day Will Come", "I've Got A Notion", "The One Who Really Loves You", "You Beat Me To The Punch", "Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right", "I'll Still Be Around" and more. The follow-up Two Lovers features the subtitle And Other Greatest Hits, but it's actually a great batch of songs that were most newly-recorded by Mary at the time – and not at all a simple round-up of singles! The approach here has just a little more rawness than some of the girl groups Berry Gordy was scoring hits with at the time, but also a sense of urban classiness. As is their wonderful way, Kent goes above and beyond here – with a great booklet of notes and photos – which shines a light on the making of these great records. Wonderful stuff! Titles include "Two Lovers", "Guess Who", "My 2 Arms - You = Tears", "Goody, Goody", "Stop Right Here", "Laughing Boy", "Looking Back", "(I Guess There's) No Love", "Was It Worth It" and "Operator".

New Vikki CarrDiscovery (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Liberty (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The title's a great one for the set – not just because Vikki Carr was a new artist for the 60s, but also because she's turned up a really fresh approach to vocals as well! Vikki's still rooted a bit in jazz modes of the decade before, but she's also got this sharper, more punctuated approach that somehow sounds a bit bolder, and more adult – a style that's a great match for the deep range of her voice as well! Bob Florence handled the arrangements, and uses a great gentle jazz style throughout as full as Vikki's voice at its best, but also equally understated too. Titles include "Bluesette", "Don't Talk To Me", "Should I Follow", "How Insensitive", "Never Will I Marry", and "I Cry Alone". CD

New VariousNew Orleans Funk – The Original Sound Of Funk Vol 2 – Second Line Strut ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 3LP ... Out Of Stock
An incredible follow up to the first New Orleans Funk compilation on Soul Jazz – even harder-hitting than the first, and filled with funky rare gems! This set took nearly a decade to follow the first, but it's been well worth the wait – and the crew at Soul Jazz have clearly used all that time to dig way past the obvious on the New Orleans scene, and come up with a really incredible batch of all-funky cuts all the way through! Even if you've got a dozen other New Orleans funk collections in your collection, you'll find plenty here to win you over – as the package goes out of its way to pull cuts from rare singles and under-reissued material – then wraps the whole thing up with the usual extra-thorough Soul Jazz approach to liner notes and details. And while some of the names are familiar here, they're nicely interspersed with lesser-known folks who keep things fresh – making for a winning lineup that really sets a new standard for this sort of set. Titles include "The Twitch" by Danny White, "Street Parade" by Earl King, "Four Corners" by Lee Dorsey, "Hot Tamales" by The Prime Mates, "Tequila" by Allen Toussaint, "Right Place Wrong Time" by Ray J, "Gossip" by Cyril Neville, "Hold On Help Is On The Way" by G Davis & R Tyler, "Funky Belly" by Warren Lee, "I'm Mr Big Stuff" by Jimmy Hicks, "The Rubber Band" by Eddie Bo, "12 Red Roses" by Betty Harris, "What Do You See In Her" by Inell Young, "You Keep Me Hanging On" by Bonnie & Sheila, "Yeah You're Right You Know You're Right" by The Gaturs, "The Tap" by Porgy Jones, and "Bo Diddley" by Art Neville.

New VariousReturn Of Funk Soul Sisters Presented by SuperFunk – Super Rare, Slinky & Funky Female Funk ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Female funk galore – and one of the greatest all-girl compilations we've ever heard! The set's a brilliant follow-up to the first Funk Soul Sisters set on BGP – but we've gotta say that we like it even better than the first, and really appreciate the wide range of unusual tunes collected on the set! There's a depth here that goes way past the obvious – a love of bad-rapping funky female soul that digs deeper, and comes up with some key gems that explode cliches and really expand our love of the music. Titles include both rare album and single tracks pulled from a variety of American indies of the late 60s and early 70s – and although many are by familiar artists, they offer up a side of their talents you really wouldn't expect! Titles include "Easily Persuaded" by Martha & The Vandellas, "Family Tree" by Little Rose Little, "Who Told You" by Jackie Moore, "That's How I Feel" by The Sisters Of Righteous, "Ain't No Love Lost" by Patti Jo, "Love Connection" by Annette Snell, "Gotta Get Away" by Harolyn Montgomery, "Just A Mistake" by The Ebonettes, "Do You Really Want To Rescue Me (part 1)" by Elsie Mae, "It's My Thing" by Betty Moorer, "Speed Ticket" by Inez & Charlie Foxx, "Get On Up & Do It Baby" by Marie Adams, and "Jesse Joe" by Jean Knight.

New VariousSpirit Of Philadelphia 2 ... CD
Expansion (UK), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous follow up to the first Spirit Of Philadelphia collection – released many years after that seminal set, and with an even farther-reaching selection of music! The first Spirit set focused on the best mellow and midtempo soul efforts of the Philly International label – but this one expands the groove even more to show the wide influence that Gamble & Huff had on the sound of Philly soul on other labels – especially the major labels, who'd begun following the indie lead in their productions by the mid 70s. There's a fair bit of work here by bigger names at the time, but all of it's got a stone Philly sound – and is either work by artists who first sprung out of the Philly scene directly, or others from different points around the country, and who'd made a trip to Philly in the 70s to record in a hipper groove! Titles include "Do You Remember Yesterday" by New York City, "Falling In Love With You" by Jimmy Ruffin, "It's Not What You Got" by Eddie Kendricks, "We Got Love" by Ben E King, "Don't Take Your Love" by The Whispers, "Can't Accept The Fact" by Gateway, "Straighten It Out" by Anglo-Saxon Brown, "Midnight Lady" by David Morris, "You Make Me Feel So Good Baby" by The Temprees, "It's Love" by The Persuaders, "In Love Again" by The Joneses, "Let's Go All The Way Down" by Brenda & The Tabulations, "Walk Away From Love" by Jackie Moore, "I Don't Have Time To Worry" by Little Anthony & The Imperials, and "That's What Love Does" by Vince Montana & The Philly Sound Orchestra.

Dope Folks, 1991. New Copy ... $22.99
A raw, funky EP of early Alkaholiks – pre-Loud/RCA era material produced by E Swift – and it's a vital slice of dawn of the 90s LA hip hop! The title ESP refers to the the trio's early moniker, Everyday Street Poets, and it's timeless stuff with a rawer vibe than the major label recordings to follow – but it's not raw as in "unfinished" sounding, it's gritty, but wholy worthy of their legacy and a real gem that any fan of timeless, golden age west coast hip hop outta love. Includes "We Gets Funky", "Mr. Troublemaker", "Ni**az Ain't Laughing No More", "Wadadang", "L.A. Law" and "Welcome To The Grooveyard". LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassGoing Places ... LP
A&M, 1965. Very Good ... $0.99
Herb Alpert's definitely Going Places by the time of this set – and his trademark Tijuana Brass sound proves itself to be a great fit for just about any sort of number! The album kicks off with the wonderful "Tijuana Taxi", a sublimely jaunty tune that almost takes Herb into Bacharach territory – and which is followed up by the even-greater "Spanish Flea" – an ear-popping anthem that's one of the greatest bits of 60s instrumental pop ever recorded! And over and above those two tunes, the album's still got plenty more to offer too – a wonderful array of tracks all given the Tijuana touch, with titles that include "More & More Amor", "Mae", "Walk Don't Run", "Felicia", and "Cinco De Mayo".

Gene Ammons & Sonny StittPrime Cuts (Boss Tenors & Boss Tenors In Orbit) ... LP
Verve, 1961/1962. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
A nice little 2-fer collecting two great meetings of two greats! Jug and Stitt go head to head on Boss Tenors, a classic album of tracks that perfectly captures the joy and fury of their live performances from years before! The record was cut in Chicago with a very hard rhythm section that includes John Houston on piano, Charles Williams on bass, and George Brown on drums – and it's way heavier than the usual Verve "meeting of the masters" session, and feels more like a record that should have been issued on Prestige or Argo. Both players are impeccable, and the solos stretch out for a long long very live time. Titles include "Blues Up & Down", "The One Before This", and "Counter Clockwise" – but these guys even groove amazingly on standards like "Autumn Leaves" and "No Greater Love". Boss Tenors In Orbit was a follow up one year later, an obscure little session with the pair once again recreating the energy of their live shows – as they stretch out nicely on very long tracks that have spare backing by the Don Patterson trio! The cuts are mostly standard stuff – "John Brown's Body", "Walkin", "Long Ago And Far Away" – but the twin-tenor sound is great, and Patterson's free organ lines riff away nicely!

Ross Andru & Mike EspositoRoss Andru & Mike Esposito's Get Lost ... Book
Hermes, 1950s. New Copy ... $8.99 29.99
One of the greatest publications to ever rip off Mad Magazine – and an early effort from the team of Ross Andru and Mike Esposito – later known for famous work at both Marvel and DC Comics! Get Lost follows from the early Mad comic book style – and features lots of well-done parodies of popular genres – film, fiction, and more! The writing is good, but the art is even better – very angular and edgey, at a level that's quite different than any other later work from the team – definitely influenced by the work of early Mad artists, but quite unique as well. The book brings together all three issues of the short-lived publication in glorious full color – and also features an interview with Mike Esposito on the fate of the comic as well. 96 pages, color, oversize.

Posi tone, 2013. New Copy ... $11.99 16.99
A great follow-up to the previous collaboration between pianist Ehud Asherie and tenorist Harry Allen – this time titled after a darker corner of downtown New York! As with the other date, this one features no other instrumentation at all – just warmly expressive duets on piano and tenor – spun out with the kind of classic tones you'd expect from Allen's work with bigger groups, yet also more intimate and personal as well. Tunes are mostly older standards, evoking the Lower East of the postwar years, and the key clubs that used to grace that scene – and titles include "Hey There", "Thou Swell", "Sposin", "Portrait In Black & White", and "Some Other Time".

The album stands as one of Ayler's most powerful, and with performances that hint strongly at the ESP recordings that would follow shortly, and have become more well known. Ayler's vision is fully in place here as he blows with unrestrained energy. The group here features Don Cherry, Gary Peacock and Sonny Murray. Amazing!

New Erykah BaduWorldwide Underground ... LP
Motown, 2003. New Copy ... $9.99 10.98
A nice one from Badu – one with a depth of feeling and genuine soulful vibes that live up to its title, despite the fact that she records for one of the world's biggest media conglomerates! It's all about the vibe here. Erykah rolls her syllables, scats and emotes feelings more than an actual narrative in the strongest of these cuts. It's not that she's forgone lyrics, but it's all about the ambience, not radio sing-a-longs. She also dives head first into her organic soul and hip hop hybrid sound a little more sparingly, but still better than most who that followed her lead post-Baduizm. She channels Donald Byrd on the great "Think Twice", which is pretty indicative of the vibe as a whole. The groove is sorta mellow, but in a very tripped-out way, with deep organ washes and synth tones, scratchy soul guitar, and crisp organic beats. There's an appearance by Dead Prez on "Steady On The Grind", and a really sweet old school flavored remake of the great "Love Of My Life" track from the Brown Sugar soundtrack with Queen Latifah and Bahamadia, but for the most part Erykah is sweating soul on her own spiritual plane here. It's gonna take a little while to sink in, but this may be her best album (despite whatever naysaying BS you may read in mainstream reviews.) Tracks include "Bump It", the great single "Danger", "Woo", "Back In The Day" and "I Want You". LP, Vinyl record album

The film followed on the Star Wars boom, and had lots of space effects, but Barry keeps things mostly orchestral here – not going for the electronics or sound effects you might think. Shirley Bassey sings 2 versions of the "Moonraker" theme – one straight and one disco – and titles include "Bond Smells A Rat", "Bond Lured To Pyramid", "Bond Arrives In Rio", "Flight Into Space", and "Space Lazer Battle".

New Les BaxterFruit Of Dreams (Ports Of Pleasure/The Sacred Idol) ... CD
Capitol/El (UK), 1957/1960. New Copy ... $4.99
2 rare slices of exotica by Les Baxter – back to back on one CD! The first half of the set features material from the album Ports Of Pleasure – a dreamy exploration of south sea ideals that's got a more lightly drifting quality than some of Baxter's more percussive exotica albums, and which is awash in dreamy soundscapes penned by Les himself! The orchestrations are large and bold throughout – mixing strings and woodwinds almost in a soundtrack-y mode – but always with the light sense of interplay that makes Baxter's work so great. Titles include "Monkey Dance Of Bali", "Pearls Of Ceylon", "Tahiti A Summer Night At Sea", "Hong Kong Cable Car", "Tramp Steamer To Singapore", "Harem Silks From Bombay", and "Sidewalk Cafes Of Saigon". The Sacred Idol is a real standout set from the end of Les Baxter's run at Capitol Records – originally scored for a film that was never released, but a great set of tracks that more than stands strongly on its own! The theme here is a Mexican/Latin American one – explored by Baxter with his trademark blend of larger orchestrations and lighter exotica touches – often swirling around in an extremely evocative mode that makes us wish the film had been issued to the public, and at a few key moments even hinting at the funkier modes that would follow on some of Les' later work for other labels. Titles include "Aqueducts", "Gardens Of The Moon", "Pyramid Of The Sun", "Temple Of Gold", and "Procession Of The Princes". CD

The set kicks off with Maybelle's perennial hit "Candy", one you've probably heard over and over, over the years – and it follows up with a surprisingly wide range of material, running from harder R&B to sophisticated jazz to heartbreaking ballads. There's plenty of strong jazzy players backing up Maybelle on the session – and tracks include "Ring Dang Dilly", "So Long", "Goin Home Baby", "How It Lies", "I Ain't Got Nobody", "Rockhouse", "I Don't Want To Cry", "That's A Pretty Good Love", and "A Good Man Is Hard To Find".

The set's a great discovery of these rare sides from 1976 – and titles include "Siin Baarbaada", "Ishururuu", "Silaa Murtii Beeke", "Kophaa Koo", and "Ammalele". LP, Vinyl record album

Not a biography of one-time Spacemen 3 mainman – but a very cool look at the wealth of great guitar rock that emanated from the Pacific Northwest from the late 50s onward! There must be something in the water up there, because countless great guitar giants have hailed from Washington State and nearby locals – artists as diverse as Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain, and a huge host of important guitar groups like The Ventures, Wailers, Kingsmen, and others! The book wisely gives its strongest focus to the 60s – with a wealth of information on the local scenes and small labels who really brought the Northwest sound to the rest of the world – then follows with a bit more on the 70s and 80s, as well as the 90s wave of punk and grunge. 304 pages, softcover, with some black and white images.

Ogun (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99
A lost treasure – never-issued material from the legendary Blue Notes combo – and a set that really helps fill some space in their all-too-small recorded catalog! The set captures the group at the end of the 70s, working in their most openly-creative mode – a style that partly shows their strong roots in the South African jazz scene of the 60s, but which also really opens up with some of the freer modes of the following decade – hitting a mix of modes that's not unlike some of the AACM at their best, although often with a lot more intensity, too! The group at this point is a quartet – with Chris McGregor on piano, Johnny Dyani on bass, Louis Moholo on drums, and Dudu Pukwana on some especially amazing alto sax – blown with such righteous force, we might well say that his instrument is center stage on the record – were it not for the wonderfully complex rhythms from the other three group members too! Tracks are long, and filled with righteous soul – and titles inlcude "Ithi Gui", "Mange", "Lonta Uyagula", "Lakutshonga Ilanga", "The Bride", and "Funk Dem Dudu". CD

The record's a monumental follow-up to Booker T & The MGs' huge hit single "Green Onions" – an extremely seductive organ-based instrumental that the band cooked up while just messing around in the studio – and it's filled with other organ-heavy grooves played by this tight Memphis quartet – a group who were just starting out at this point, but already had a sound that's unlike anyone else! The work of Booker T is especially nice – Hammond with a bit more punch than other combos of this nature – backed by some wicked guitar from Steve Cropper, bass from Lewis Steinberg, and drums from Al Jackson. The set features a nice mix of covers and original tunes – with titles that include "Green Onions", "I Got A Woman", "Twist & Shout", "Lonely Avenue", "Comin Home Baby", "Mo Onions", "Behave Yourself", and "Rinky Dink".

TSR/Harmless (UK), 1983/1985. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A pair of albums from Miquel Brown – plus lots of bonus tracks too! First up is plenty of Manpower from Miquel Brown– the Canadian club singer who scored big with the classic "So Many Man So Little Time" club cut in the early 80s – then followed it up with this full album of late disco grooves! Brown's vocal approach is in the higher side of the spectrum – and the cuts take off on the style of some of the Canadian disco modes for divas from a few years before – but feature some instrumentation that's a bit more 80s, especially in the keyboards and beats. There's a few older soul touches at times – and the album's produced by Ian Levine and arranged by co-producer Fiachra Trench – usually in a mode that's somewhat poppy and hook-heavy. Titles include "So Many Men So Little Time", "Manpower", "Beeline", "Sunny Day", "He's A Saint He's A Sinner", and "Maybe He Forgot". CD also features "So Many Men So Little Time (hot tracks Rob Kimble rmx)", "Beeline (Mike Mayberry 12" rmx)", and "So Many Men So Little Time (2009 metropolitan soul rmx)". Close To Perfection has Miquel Brown hitting more of an 80s groove than before – but still holding onto a few of her best disco elements – in the hands of the same production team as previous singles, but maybe also trying to reach for more contemporary club modes as well. Titles include "One Hundred Percent", "Learn The Lines Of Love", "White Lace", "The Easy Way Out", "Blind Date", and "Black Leather". CD also features "Black Leather (12" mix)", "Close To Perfection (M&M rmx)", and "Love Reputation (12" ext dance)". CD

Prestige, 1965. Very Good ... $24.99
One of the greatest records ever from pianist Jaki Byard – a razor-sharp set that features some tremendous work from tenorist Booker Ervin and trumpeter Richard Williams! Byard starts out the set in trio formation for the first two numbers – echoing the great qualities of his earlier albums for New Jazz/Prestige – and then Ervin and Williams slide in on the following two tracks – really expanding the sound with a nice sense of added fire. Both players are a perfect fit for Byard – schooled in a Mingus modernist sensibility that has them really pushing the edges, but never going too far out or getting too free. A few numbers have almost a gutbuckety sense of soul – one that stretches back over previous eras of jazz expression – and titles include "Searchlight", "European Episode", "Out Front", "Two Different Worlds", and "When Sunny Gets Blue" – a track that has Byard on alto and piano, recorded a few years before. LP, Vinyl record album

New Robert CacciapagliaSei Note In Logica (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Wah Wah (Spain), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
Sublime minimal sounds from Italian composer Robert Cacciapaglia – a record we'd rank right up there with the 70s best from Terry Riley, Steve Reich, and Philip Glass! Cacciapaglia follows in a tradition begun by other Italian modernists – like Giusto Pio and Franco Battiatto – but he also adds in phase-oriented playing that really opens things up – a beautifully lyrical vibe that's probably most close to Terry Riley in its hypnotic swell, but which is carried off here through complicated variations of strings, woodwinds, electronics, marimba, and some especially great vocal passages! The cover's as wonderful as the music – and the whole thing's a set we've treasured for years. LP, Vinyl record album

CapitolsWe Got A Thing ... LP
Atco/Karen, 1966. Very Good ... $14.99
An obvious follow-up to their big hit "Cool Jerk", but a great album of raw soulful tracks that puts this Detroit group right up there with the best of the 60s up-tempo harmony groups! Apart from the nice original title cut, the record's also got a number of other great tracks like "It's Googaloo Time", "Tired Running From You", "I Got To Handle It", and "I Feel Alright". There's a few other Atlantic soul covers, but since the great Ollie McLaughlin produced the session in Detroit, the album's got a much more exciting feel than a lot of other Atlantic soul albums from the time!

John CarpenterAssault On Precinct 13 ... CD
Record Makers/Death Waltz (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
A super-dope electronic classic – John Carpenter's original soundtrack for his 1976 film Assault On Precinct 13! The main theme of the film is tremendous – early, raw electronic drums and bass – all moving in a slow, spacey, heavy funk sort of style – with nice noisy touches on the fringes, and an overall approach that's as thrilling as the film. The other tracks follow with a similar approach – using some really spare electric drums to set the pace, then filling in the rhythms with sinister bits on keys, bass, and added percussion. The whole thing's a pre-hip hop, pre-electro masterpiece – with a sound that's almost more mindblowing today than it was back in the 70s! Titles include "Street Thunder", "Main Title", "Napoleon Wilson", "Energy Stop", "Wrong Flavour", "Well's Flight", "Walking Out", and "Second Wave". CD

Alvin Cash & The RegistersTwine Time ... LP
Mar V Lus, 1965. Sealed ... $11.99
The classic album of short funky Chicago soul dance tracks, recorded for Mar V Lus as the follow-up to Alvin's huge "Twine Time" single. Most of the cuts on here have the same sort of groove, and most of them were written by either Andre Williams or Monk Higgins, with the kind of hard soul approach they were taking at the time with Chicago soul. Tracks include "Burn Just A Hair", "Do It One More Time", "Barracuda", "Hawk Eye", and "Bump". A potentially great record that's marred only by the rough recording quality of the Mar V Lus studios – every copy we've come across has sounded somewhat distorted and dirty, regardless of how clean the vinyl is .

Jimmy CastorIt's Just Begun/Phase Two ... CD
RCA/Robinsongs (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
A pair of classics from the Jimmy Castor Bunch – back to back on a single CD! It's Just Begun is wickedly fuzzy funk! Jimmy Castor recorded in a lot of different styles during the 70s – but the one he used on this album is still his best! The record's a non-stop guitar-heavy batch of classic funk tracks – and it features the storming break track "It's Just Begun", the funky goofy "Troglodyte", and plenty other nice moments like "Bad", "LTD", "I Promise To Remember", and "Psychee". Fuzzy guitar meets heavy drums meets some of the most insane lyrics ever on a mainstream funk album! One of our most requested records – and for good reason! Phase Two is probably Jimmy's second best album of the 70s – one with many of the same elements as his legendary It's Just Begun record! The band is grooving hard – with plenty of heavy conga, fuzzed out guitar, and trippy grooves that serve as a perfect foil for Jimmy's super-dope sense of humor. The record features a remake of Jimmy's earlier "Hey Leroy", still done with a Latiny groove, but also with many elements of "It's Just Begun" thrown into the funky mix. The album also features Jimmy's guitar-heavy "Tribute To Jim [Hendrix]", and "Luther The Anthropoid", which was a follow-up to "Troglodyte", with similar stoner caveman lyrics! Another tasty cut is "Party Life", a 7 minute Latin funk number with a very War-like groove! CD

Neneh CherryBlank Project ... CD
Smalltown Supersound (Sweden), 2014. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
Some of the most striking work we've heard from Neneh Cherry in years – and a great follow-up to her previous project with The Thing! This set has Neneh working with producer Kieran Hebden – who returns Cherry to the offbeat, arty sound of her early years on the British scene – particularly her excellent work with Rip Rig & Panic! As with that period, the rhythms here are key – but are also rhythms that really veer from the usual – odd basslines and beats that provide a jagged bottom underneath Cherry's soulfully flowing vocals – a sense of counterpoint that really gives the album a lot of power. Titles include "Naked", "Spit Three Times", "Blank Project", "Cynical", "422", "Out Of The Black", "Dossier", and "Everything". CD

ClashSoundsystem Box Set (11CDs & DVD) ... CD
Sony, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 11 CDs & DVD ... $169.99 249.98
The ultimate set for any true lover of The Clash – a set that features their first five albums, plus three more CDs' worth of bonus material – plus a DVD, and lots of amazing bonus bits too! The box is amazing in and of itself – styled like an early 80s boombox, and about as big as one too – and stuffed with bonus materials that include a set of metal dog tags, a vintage sticker set, a 15" poster, two bumper stickers, three reprints of the Armagideon Times zines, a Clash folder, a paperback book (The Future Is Unwritten), three DIY stickers, five badges, a service manual, and a special DVD too, with unreleased video and film footage. Also includes three CDs' worth of bonus material – lots of singles, rare tracks, and more – and then moves onto the first five (and five best) records by The Clash – their landmark self-titled debut, with the great UK track list; the brilliant follow-up Give Em Enough Rope; the blistering London Calling double set; the game-changing, genre-stepping Sandinista (originally a 3LP set); and the still-great Combat Rock – maybe the last album to still have all the best Clash elements still in place! See the photo for the full scope of material in the set – mindblowing! CD

Classic funky groovers from Dennis Coffey – with his hard guitar sound gettin' all fuzzy over some loud drums and funky Sussex production! This one's still very much on the "Scorpio" vibe, when the label was keeping things nice and hard – and before Dennis got a bit hooked into disco. Includes the cuts "Ride Sally Ride" and "Taurus", which was his similar sounding follow-up to "Scorpio". Also includes "Can You Feel it", "Midnight Blue", "Toast & Jam", "Man & Boy", "It's Too Late" and "Bridge Over Troubled Water". LP, Vinyl record album

Phil Cohran & The Hypnotic Brass EnsembleKelan Philip Cohran & The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble ... LP
Honest Jons (UK), 2012. New Copy 2LP ... $21.99
An amazing bit of music – and an incredible document of generations of creative jazz energy as well! The legendary Phil Cohran teams up here with Hypnotic Brass Ensemble – a collective made up of Cohran's sons, who follow strongly in the rich legacy of his own Artistic Heritage group – yet in a very different way! Hypnotic Brass have caught the ear of many during their bright rise to fame – with a fluid, horn-heavy groove that's really amazing – echoes of Sun Ra and other Chicago creative legends – yet played almost entirely on brass instruments, which gives them an even bolder vibe. Here, working with their progenitor brings the group even more depth than before – an excellent sound that really spins things out wonderfully – percussion layered underneath the horns, solos taking jazzy flight, and an overall righteous vibe that holds things together beautifully. The album's way more than the sum of its parts – and those parts are already rich indeed – and titles include "Stateville", "Cuernavaca", "Ancestral", "Spin", "Zincali", "Apsara", and "Frankincense & Myrrh".

Michel ColombierUne Chambre En Ville ... CD
Universal (France), 1982. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99
A rare score from French arranger Michel Colombier – penned for an equally-obscure film directed by the great Jacques Demy! The album follows the same musical style as some of Demy's better-known work from the 60s – like Umbrellas Of Cherbourg or Young Girls Of Rochefort – although the overall style is a bit darker, and Colombier's music definitely rises to the challenge. Vocals don't feature as heavily as on some of Demy's movies with Michel Legrand, but they still have a strong role in the music – and this beautiful 2CD package brings the complete score to light for the first time – quite an achievement considering that the film never even made it to video. Titles include "Edith Et Sa Mere", "Violette Amoureuse", "Visite D'Edmond", "La Chambre D'Hotel", "Chez La Baronne", "La Rupture", and "Mme Pelletier Et Sa Fille". CD

New Alice CooperLove It To Death ... LP

The third album from Alice Cooper and perhaps the first great one – starting the 70s sleaze show win streak with the massive "I'm Eighteen" and an LP full of great, gritty and grimy rock and roll. Bob Ezrin's producing for the first time, and if the songs and the whole show isn't yet as menacingly theatrical as it would get to be in the following couple of years, the angry anthemic vibe is here and it's heavy! Other tracks include "Caught In A Dream", "Hallowed Be My Name", "Black Juju", "Is It My Body", "Second Coming", "Ballad Of Dwight Fry" and "Sun Arise". LP, Vinyl record album

Gal CostaRecanto Gal Ao Vivo (DVD) ... DVD
Universal (Brazil), 2013. New Copy DVD ... $24.99
Amazing sounds from Gal Costa – a brilliant live album that follows strongly in the mode of her Recanto studio album! Like that set, this one features Gal in the most experimental style she's used in years – bits of electronics and contemporary underground modes layered in with her sublime vocals – all in ways that reopen that leftfield side of Costa's talents that have been buried for so many years! Some tracks are quite intimate and personal, others are very powerful – and the performance was put together by both Caetano and Moreno Veloso, with backing by a trio that also features percussion from Domenico too. Titles include "Tudo Gil", "Da Maior Importancia", "Mansidao", "Forca Estranha", "Meu Bem Mel Mal", "O Amor", "Baby", "Deus E O Amor", "Segunda", "Barato Total", and "Autotune Autoerotico". DVD features subtitles in Portuguese, English, and Spanish. DVD

CromagnonCave Rock ... CD
ESP, 1969. New Copy ... $10.99 15.99
Crazy psyche era wierdness from Cromagnon – the band name and album title may reference prehistory, but this stuff is actually way ahead of it's time – if we didn't see the date on this thing, we'd have sworn it to be from the art damaged post punk early 80s! The group is credited to Austin Grasmere, Brian Elliot and "The Connecticut Tribe" – and the instrumentation is billed as vocals, music and sounds – you figure out the rest. The set opens with some soundbites of Hollywood fan fare that segues into a mix of bagpipes, thundering percussion and vocals that sound like screams and whispers at the same time. The following track "Ritual Fest Of The Libido" rivals "LA Blues" by the Stooges in gutteral grunted nightmare soundscapes, but later tracks mix in more laidback grooves that are just as freaky. A total mindfrack of a record, and a pretty amazing one, if not for everybody! Other titles include "Organic Sundown", "Fantasy", "Crow Of The Black Tree", "Genitalia", "Toth, Scribe I" and "First World Of Bronze". CD
