Four FreshmenDifferent Strokes ... LP
Liberty, Late 60s. Very Good+ .... $3.99
Sublime 60s work from The Four Freshmen – a record that's very different than their 50s classics, but in a wonderful way! The Freshmen had had a key influence on the sound of sunshine pop in the 60s – a fact that was often noted by Brian Wilson, who'd wanted the Beach Boys to sound like the Freshmen in the early days – and by other groups, who'd said that the group's harmonies were a key factor in their sound. Here, the Freshmen get a chance to turn the tables, and sing in a groovy groovy style that's almost an older jazz harmony approximation of the sunshine pop sound. For the set, they've got some great arrangements by Mike Melvoin, who also produced the record – and they come off with some excellent versions of tunes that include "Everyday People", "Hey Jude", "I Will Wait For You", "Bitter Honey", "A Man & A Woman", "Faces", and "It's Not Unusual".

Humble PieComplete Performance – Rockin' The Fillmore (4CD set) ... CD
A&M/Omnivore, 1971. New Copy 4 CDs .... $39.99 54.98
Some of the most hard-hitting work ever recorded by Humble Pie – and that's saying a lot, given the power of the group on other albums! The performance is very unbridled – really open-ended, at a level that showcases not just the mindbending early guitar talents of Peter Frampton (something you'd never guess if you only knew his hits), but also the raw power that Steve Marriott could unleash in the group – quite a change from his work with the Small Faces. The tunes include a number of non-Humble Pie tracks, given a raw bluesy workout on extended versions – and titles include "Four Day Creep", "Stone Cold Fever", "I'm Ready", "Rollin Stone", and "I Walk On Gilded Splinters". 4CD set features a huuuuge amount of material that's never been issued before – 15 more long tracks, pulled from all the Friday and Saturday shows that went into recording the album!

New Dennis BrownComplete A&M Years (Foul Play/Love Has Found Its Way/Prophet Rides Again) ... CD
A&M/VP, Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Dennis Brown's endearing trio of albums for A&M – Four Play, Love Has Found Its Way and The Prophet Rides Again – nicely anthologized on this great 2CD set! By the time the 80s came around, Dennis was, deservedly, a huge star in both Jamaica and the UK, but hadn't reached that level of fame in the US. It couldn't have made more sense for a major label in the States to sweep in and try to change that situation – and if the fame didn't quite come on our side of the pond, it wasn't for a lack of great music. The Professionals lay down the instrumentation and each of the 3 A&M records feature excellent production by Joe Gibbs, along with Willie Lindo, Dennis Brown and Errol Thompson. Titles include "On The Rocks", "I Need Your Love", "Come On Baby", "The Existence Of Jah", "The Cheapter", "Your Man", "Love Has Found Its Way", "Get High On Your Love", "Blood, Sweat And Tears", "Any Day Now", "Why Baby Why", "Get Up", "Out Of The Funk", "Jammin' My Way To Fame", "Too Hot", "The Prophet Rides Again", "Historical Places (Ethiopia)", "This Love Of Mine", "Storms Are Raging".

New MatchNew Light (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1969. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A Sunshine Pop treasure – and a record that perfectly straddles a few different strands of late 60s pop! The quintet have fabulous harmonies – of the sort rooted in The Four Freshmen, and given a sunny finish by The Beach Boys – but they also move here in a way that prefaces soft rock modes of the decade to come – working in arrangements from Jack Pleis that still have plenty of jazz and pop, but which also compress things in a cool way too – giving the whole album a sublime sound that's really unique! The album's not exactly like the Roger Nichols & The Small Circle of Friends, but it's definitely got a similar vibe – and no surprise, the group start things off with a great version of "Don't Take Your Time". Other tracks include "Where Do I Go", "Mornin I'll Be Movin On", "The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter", "Love Years Coming", "A Time For Us", and "Free & Easy". Includes two bonus tracks – "Time" and "Mirror Maze Lady". CD

New Greg Foat GroupGirl & Robot With Flowers ... CD
Jazzman (UK), 2012. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Amazing sounds from this very hip group – a contemporary combo, but one who play with a depth of sound to warrant their inclusion on the Jazzman label! The style is almost spiritual jazz, but a bit more laidback too – sounds that are cosmic, yet never soaring to the skies – and almost more content to contemplate their own existence in these cool little rhythmic progressions – a very hip approach that draws a lot of power from its minimalism! Instrumentation is a bit trippy at points – but mostly in the way the players fold things together – so that tinkling piano tipples over brooding basslines, or organ lines hum softly to encourage string sounds to start too – a beautifully poetic style that only gets better as the album moves along! Titles include "Cast Adrift", "For A Breath I Tarry", "Have Spacesuit Will Travel (part 2)", "Clear Skies Select Stick", "Girl & Robot With Flowers (part 6)", and "Girl & Robot With Flowers (part 4)". CD features four tracks not on the limited LP pressing. CD

New LighthouseSuite Feeling (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
RCA/Beatball (Korea), 1969. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A great title for this one – given that the album's got a full, spacious sound – one that definitely lives up to the "suite feeling" you'd expect! The style here is even more sophisticated than on the group's debut – still a mix of jazzy horns and rockish rhythms, but fused together even more perfectly – but with a leanness that's a good contrast to some of the more overblown groups of the same generation! There's just the right balance here to allow some standout solos – on horns, natch, but also some sweet Hammond too – and a young Howard Shore is also in the group on alto sax, and handled some of the arrangments for the record. Titles inlcude a great version of "A Day In The Life" – plus originals "Taking A Walk", "Could You Be Concerned", "Chest Fever", "Feel So Good", "Places On Faces Four Blue Carpet Traces", and "What Sense".

New 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 .... Out Of Stock
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!

New ShindigIssue 35 ... Magazine
Shindig, 2013. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
The reach of The Beatles was mighty strong in the 70s – so much so that even after the breakup of the fab four, their influence was felt in countless strands of music on both sides of the Atlantic! This rich issue of Shindig traces that post-Beatles legacy – with great articles on solo Paul McCartney, Harry Nilsson, Klaatu, Simones, The Deviants, Stackridge, and even the famous parody group The Rutles! The issue is one of the most unified we've ever seen from Shindig – amost a book, really – and comes in full color, complete with the usual great run of reviews, too. Magazine
