New Killah PriestBehind The Stained Glass ... CD
Good Hands, 2008. Used ... Out Of Stock
Raw funk & soul beats with both grit and soaring, string sample flourishes – backed with straight forward storytelling for Wu Tang veteran Killah Priest!

Titles include "I Believe", "4 Tomorrow", "A Crying Heart", "Hood Nursery", "Redemption", "Profits Of Man", "The World", "God's Time", "Born 2 Die" and more – plus the bonus track "The End Is Coming".

Tyrone DavisTurning Point (with bonus track) ... CD
Dakar/Solid (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99
One of Tyrone Davis' last albums for Dakar – and a great one too – issued in 1976 before the demise of that label, and Tyrone's big move to Columbia Records! Tyrone's still working strongly here in that great Chicago mix of smooth and rough – a sound first forged on his early Dakar hits, and carried through strongly here by arrangers Tom Tom and James Mack – who still keep a lot of the indie elements that made Davis' music for Dakar great right from the start. The centerpiece of the album is the title track "Turning Point", and it's situated in a set of other nice tunes, a number of which have that smoothed-out feel that Tyrone brought to his work in the late 70s. Includes a remake of "Turn Back The Hands Of Time" (done at a nice ballad tempo), plus "It's So Good (To Be Home With You)", "Saving My Love For You", and "I Can't Bump" (parts 1 & 2). CD features a bonus single mix of "It's So Good". CD

Ruthann FriedmanComplete Constant Companion Sessions ... CD
Reprise/Now Sounds (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the only full albums ever issued by the lovely Ruthann Friedman – a talent who's known both for her seminal 60s work as a songwriter in LA, and for a slew of unreleased tracks that never saw the light of day! This album's different – and is a lasting testament to Friedman's strength as a singer/songwriter – a really under-produced late 60s Warner Brothers gem that mostly just features Ruthann's vocals and acoustic guitar – a mode that might have sounded folksy a few years before, but which takes on the pride and power of the Joni Mitchell generation in Friedman's hands – with lots of dark undercurrents and surprising jazzy inflections in both the vocals and guitar. Titles include "Topsy Turvy Moon", "Ringing Bells", "Morning Becomes You", "Peaceable Kingdom", "Danny", "No Time", and "Look Up To The Sun". CD also features 12 more tracks recorded for Warner at the time, but never issued – including sessions with help from Ry Cooder, Van Dyke Parks, and members of The Byrds. Some of these expand the instrumentation a bit more – but the vibe is very much the same – and titles include "World's End", "The Sky Is Moving South", "Have A Good Time", "Carry On Through", and "Chocolate Sea" – plus an early demo of her classic composition "Windy".

Krzysztof KomedaCul De Sac – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Soundtrack Classics (Germany), Early 60s. New Copy ... $7.99
Dark and spooky jazz from the godlike hands of Kryzstof Komeda! Komeda's best known in the US for his soundtrack work for the film Rosemary's Baby, but this album features tracks he scored for an earlier Roman Polanski film, the dark thriller Cul De Sac. The music is a strange blend of bossa nova, crime jazz, and some sci-fi touches – horns, piano, off-beat rhythms, and some odd production serving up a wonderful set of tunes that make the album one of Komeda's best soundtracks ever. 7 tracks in all – but it's also the only way you'll find this material in this form, and comes with a good set of notes on the music and Komeda. Titles include "Walk On The Water", "Pushing The Car", "Radio One", "Cul De Sac", and "Dicky's Death". CD

Dean MartinDream With Dean (2014 Record Store Day Release) (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Reprise/Legacy, 1964. New Copy ... $19.99 24.98
Easy to dream with Dean Martin with the record's this mellow – a great late night session that really shows Dino sparkling on a set of laidback ballads and love tunes! The style's a great reminder that Martin could be as good of a ballad singer as he was an upbeat jokester and hipster – a quality that didn't always some through as strongly in his Rat Pack years. Backing is by a cool jazz combo – with Barney Kessel on guitar, Ken Lane on piano, Red Mitchell on bass, and Irv Cottler on drums – and titles include "I'll Buy That Dream", "I'm Confessin", "Blue Moon", "I Don't Know Why", "Hands Across The Table", "Smile", and the original recording of "Everybody Loves Somebody".

Hank MobleyStraight No Filter (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Note, 1966. Used ... $6.99
No filters here, as Hank Mobley's sound is clean, lean, and right on the money – hitting that newly-sophisticated groove of the Caddy For Daddy years in this sweet unissued set! The date was recorded in the 60s, but unissued by Blue Note for many years – another one of those head-scratching mysteries from the label, yet also a real treat to 80s jazz fans who finally got their hands on the sides – a whole new discovery of Hank Mobley's genius, further appreciated at a time when we weren't hearing more from him. The players are top-shelf all the way through – and include Freddie Hubbard or Donald Byrd on trumpet, Herbie Hancock or Barry Harris on piano, Paul Chambers or Butch Warren on bass, and Philly Joe Jones or Billy Higgins on drums. CD version really expands from the original LP – with 9 titles that include "Chain Reaction", "Third Time Around", "Hank's Waltz", "Yes Indeed", "Straight No Filter", "Syrup & Biscuits", and "The Feelin's Good".

Willie NelsonIt Will Come To Pass – The Metaphysical Worlds & Poetic Introspections Of Willie Nelson ... CD
RCA/Omni (Australia), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.98
Willie Nelson without the long hair – really sounding great on a set of early recordings for RCA! That amazing voice is already very firmly in place – that sharp, raspy tone that was an instant original in country music – especially when singing Nelson's own words, which really dominate this wonderful collection – a set that, as you'd guess from the title, really highlights Willie's more contemplative nature! The whole thing's wonderfully free from any overdone country music cliches – and is a great document of this under-reissued side of Nelson's catalog – the roots that led to the superstardom of the 70s, but with a much more personal, heartfelt quality too. CD features 28 tracks in all – and titles include "Healing Hands Of Time", "Suffer In Silence", "Truth Number One", "Jimmy's Road", "Pages", "Little Things", "Blackjack County Chain", "Me & Paul", "These Are Difficult Times Remember The Good Times", "Born To Lose", "The Ghost", and "Darkness On The Face Of The Earth".

Rune Grammafon (Germany), 2014. New Copy ... $16.99
A fierce combination of piano and percussion – the former by Sten Sandell, the latter by Paal Nilsson Love – two very well-matched improvisers! The tracks here are mostly long and dynamic – very freewheeling performances by both musicians, but at a level that really holds strong with a good sense of focus – the kind of sounds that migh run off the rail in the hands of two lesser players, but which continue to burn very hard from the team of Sten and Paal! Tracks include "Jacana", "Kauri", and "Curvature". CD

Gentle magic from singer Jimmy Scott – one of our favorite of his comeback recordings of recent years! The album features tracks that Jimmy Recorded over sessions done in 2000 and 2001 – working with a host of great jazz players like Eric Alexander, Joe Beck, Hank Crawford, David Newman, Grady Tate, and Cyrus Chestnut – all of whom bring a warm and mellow feel to the set, allowing Jimmy some good space to breeze around in understated brilliance. Titles include "Yesterday", "Those Who Were", "How Long Has This Been Going On", "Time On My Hands", and "If I Should Lose You". CD

Johnny Hammond SmithThat Good Feelin' ... LP
New Jazz, 1959. Very Good- ... $28.99
Good feelings and plenty of soul – some very early work as a leader from Hammond hero Johnny Smith! The set's got Johnny using the organ with lots of stops out – that full, wide range of the instrument that initially knocked so many folks for a loop when it first came into jazz – then really took strong formation in the hands of a player like this! The groove's a bit like a Jimmy Smith record for Blue Note, but a lot grittier too – with some occasional elements of R&B mixed in with the more far-reaching jazz sensibilities. The group features Thornel Schwartz on guitar, who'd played famously with Jimmy Smith – plus George Tucker on bass and Leo Stevens on drums. Titles include the originals "Puddin" and "That Good Feelin" – plus "My Funny Valentine", "I'll Remember April", and "Billie's Bounce". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original New Jazz pressing, with RVG stamp. Vinyl has some marks that click. Cover has some edge wear, initials in marker on the front, and some wear and light stains on the back.)

Delroy Wilson/Prince JammyDub Plate Style ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 70s. Very Good+ 2LP ... $14.99
Another mighty batch of dubness from Pressure Sounds! Oiginally issued as 20 Golden Hits, this fat batch of dubs takes some of Delroy Wilson's smoothest easy rocking numbers produced by Striker Lee, and hands them over to Prince Jammy at Tubby's for a clean spare dub reading, aimed straight for the sound system, but equally at home in your headphones, too! Jammy applies an easy touch to the dub antics here, preserving Wilson's soulful vocal performances and adding just the right touch atmosphere and highlighting the snapping rhythms underneath! 20 sweet tracks in all, including "A Bright & Sunny Day", "You Have To Get A Beating", "I'm Still Waiting", "Can I Change My Mind", "Ms Grace", "Living In The Footsteps Of Another Man", "Better Must Come", "Rain From The Skies", "I'm Doing My Thing", "She Is Just A Play Girl", "Love Uprising", "Here Come The Heartaches", "Mash It Up", "Stick By Me", "You Are Mine" and "Do Good (Everyone Will Be Judged)".

New Paul WinterRio ... LP
Columbia, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
Even though Paul Winter's always been a little bit of a phony, this bossa LP on Columbia is pretty good stuff! The record was recorded with some of Brazil's best bossa players – like Luiz Bonfa, Roberto Menescal, and Luiz Eca (of Tamba Trio fame). John Hammond produced the session, so you can be sure it's got the kind of rootsy sound that will make the tracks have a bit more kick than if the album was in the hands of a regular pop-bossa producer. Titles include "Avion", "Reza", "Vagamente", "Ela E Carioca", "Zomba", and "Alem Da Imaginacao". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label 2 eye pressing. Cover has a tracklist sticker, some marker, and a center split on the top seam.)

VariousBeat From Badsville Vol 1 – Trash Classics from Lux & Ivy's Vinyl Mountain ... CD
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... $16.99
An amazing package – filled with loads of rare gems – all vintage vinyl nuggets from the enormous collection of The Cramps! Lux Interior and Poison Ivy are legendary record collectors – and have been digging in thrift stores, warehouses, and basements for many decades – filling a love of music that even predates the formation of their famous group – and which went onto inform the sounds they made on their own! Given that the duo were out there digging for many years before the rest of us, they've definitely gotten their hands on some amazing gems over the years – a good number of which are presented here – subtitled in ways that really give you an idea of the sounds – "ghoulish exotica", "lip-curling rock n roll", "crazy mixed up sounds", and "instrumental madness". Titles include "The Cave" by Gary Spider Webb, "Wild Man Walk" by The Ebonettes, "Mashed Potatoes" by Noble Watts, "Unitar Rock" by Willie Joe & His Unitar, "Jibba Jab" by Tic & Toc, "From The Top Of Your Guggle" by The Five Blobs, "Gang War" by Gene Maltais, "Sugar Doll" by Johnny Jay, "Bongo Beatin Beatnik" by Joe Hall & The Corvettes, and "Dragon Walk" by The Noblemen.

New VariousJoey Negro – Remixed With Love ... CD
Z Records (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99
Joey Negro takes on a host of killer club cuts from the end of the 70s – and turns in some of his best remix work to date! Given that Joey's own music is always very classic-styled – whether as The Sunburst Band, or under other names – his approach here is very respectful of the originals, and really serves to just enhance elements of these tunes that we might have missed in the first place! And honestly, the set's filled with numbers we never would have expected to be so great in this setting – cuts that were already pretty good, but which sparkle in brilliant new ways in the hands of Joey Negro – all with a deeply soulful energy that takes us back to the Warehouse or Paradise Garage. Titles include completely unique mixes of "Welcome To Our World" by Mass Production, "Hot Shot" by Karen Young, "I Love To Dance" by Kleeer, "I Should've Loved Ya" by Narada Michael Walden, "Down For The Third Time" by Bobby Caldwell, "The Same Old Scene" by Roxy Music, "Love Money" by TW Funkmasters, "Haven't You Heard" by Patrice Rushen, "Get On Up Get On Down" by Roy Ayers, "Over & Over" by Ashford & Simpson, "Half A Minute" by Matt Bianco, "Always" by Electric Empire, and "Cosmic Lust" by Mass Production.

VariousKenny Dope Vs P&P Records – P&P Rarities & Re-Edits ... CD
P&P, Late 70s/2005. Used 2CD ... $6.99
A guided tour of one of the grooviest club labels ever – all at the hands of the legendary Kenny Dope! The incredibly well-priced package features 2 CDs worth of music – one disc with a 26 track mix of the best and rarest of the P&P Records catalog, and one disc featuring 13 of the label's best cuts, unmixed save for a few special Kenny Dope edits! The core mix is great enough – a mindblowing 76 minutes of music that steps along with that sweet, soulful, and moogy P&P Records groove – crafted way back in the late 70s by the legendary team of Patrick Adams and Peter Brown! And although there's been some other P&P collections over the years, the umixed disc features 4 tracks that have never been reissued before – plus some great lesser-known bits and edits!

VariousNicola Conte Presents Mystic Prestige – Deep Afrocentric Modal Jazz From Prestige Archives ... CD
Prestige/Universal (Japan), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $28.99
Nicola Conte digs deep into the catalog of Prestige Records – and comes up with a host of spiritual and modal jazz tunes in the process! Conte's ears are always wonderful – not just on his own albums, or his work with Schema Records – but also when he's given material like this – sounds that might seem familiar at the outset, but which really bristle with new energy in his hands! You'll recognize most of the artists here, but Nicola's done an excellent job of pulling out really special tracks – including some under-heard album gems that resonate with some of the earliest examples of spiritual undercurrents in jazz. Titles include "Taboo" by Yusef Lateef, "Poinciana" by Jerome Richardson, "Blues In Bloom" by Gigi Gryce, "Cubano Chant" by Art Taylor, "Talkin Bout JC" by Larry Young, "Barengo" by Barry Harris, "Quiet Dawn" by Cedar Walton, "Feeling Good" by Andy & The Bey Sisters, and "Stolen Moments" by Eddie Lockjaw Davis.

Perfect Toy (Germany), 1960s/1970s/2000s. New Copy 2LP ... $11.99
A fresh and funky second Shake-A-Leg compilation from Perfect Toy – chronicling the styles spun at the Shake-A-Leg DJ nights, which shake up the Munich club scene on a monthly basis – with the best rare vintage and contemporary jazzy funk, Afro Beat and deep soul! You know you're in good DJ hands when the setlist plays like a 40 something year history of globetrotting, dancefloor ready jazz and funky soul – spanning the old(er) school styles of Charles Earland, Willis Jackson, Dizzy Gillespie, Pucho & The Latin Soul Brothers and more, plus contemporary torch carriers such as The Qualitons, Cesar's Salad and Deep Jazz. Compiled by Jerker Kluge and Tobias Kirmayer.

New Bill WithersJust As I Am ... LP
Sussex, 1971. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A beautiful album by Bill Withers – filled with incredibly well written songs, and an amazing instrumental technique that blended folksy elements with smoother 70s soul, in a sound that would put Bill at the top of the charts for many years, yet still give him cred with soul fans for decades! Booker T Jones arranged, produced, and played electric piano on the album – and we can say without a doubt that the record's one of the few good things to come out of his move to LA! Although the album's not a greatest hits one, given the strength of the tracks, it may as well be, as it includes Withers classics like "Grandma's Hands", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Harlem", and "Hope She'll Be Happier". Also features the nice groover, "Better Off Dead", which has a very tasty intro! LP, Vinyl record album

New ShirellesLost & Found – Rare & Previously Unreleased Shirelles ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great re-evaluation of the music of The Shirelles – one that takes us way past their familiar hits, into a range of rare and obscure work from the 60s! The tunes here are a refreshing change from some of the too-compiled material in The Shirelles' career – and offer up a good number of previously unissued gems from the vaults of Scepter Records, plus a few other tunes that saw the light of day over the years – but only briefly, and in limited ways. A good deal of the tracks are really solid 60s soul – not girl-group pop, but tracks done with styles that echo work from the best of the New York uptown and Chi-soul generation – and the vocals go a bit deeper than we expected, in a way that really renews our appreciation of the group! CD features 29 titles in all – including "I Might Like It", "Remember Me", "I'm Yours", "Lonesome Native Girl", "Why Does Every Boy Remind Me Of You", "Hey Rocky", "Hands Off He's Mine", "Groovy Guy", "Go Tell Her", "Crossroads In Your Heart", and "Long Day Short Night".

New Baby WashingtonI've Got A Feeling – The Best Of Baby Washington ... CD
Stateside/EMI (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite possibly the best collection we've ever seen on Baby Washington – a great 60s soul singer who's got a heck of a lot more to offer than just her best-remembered hit! Despite a diminutive name, Baby's got a heck of a great vocal style – one that's heartbreakingly sweet at times, but which also comes across with a deeper soul approach that was often a strong link between uptown and southern soul styles in the 60s. This massively overstuffed set brings together more work from Washington than we've ever seen on one CD before – a selection of tunes from both her Sue and Veep Records singles and albums of the time. 28 tracks in all, including "The Ballad Of Bobby Dawn", "There He Is", Leave Me Alone", "Careless Hands", "Standing On The Pier", "I Can't Wait Until I See My Baby Again", "No Time For Pity", "I'm On The Outside (Looking In)", "Take Me Like I Am", "Get A Hold Of Yourself", "Hurt So Bad", "Think About The Good Times", "Hold Back The Dawn" and more!

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massive overview of the genius Chicago scene of the late 60s – and a set that's overflowing with some of the heaviest music ever recorded! The collection focuses on the most groundbreaking work from the later Chess years – particularly the funky blues, psychedelic soul, and tripped out jazz that was coming out of the Cadet Concept studios in the hands of producers like Charles Stepney, Richard Evans, and Marshall Chess! The Chess groups were ahead of their time by decades – blending together styles without a thought of simple genre restrictions, often forsaking chart fame and record sales in pursuit of an adventurous groove. And while some of the artists on the set may be familiar names, we can promise that most of them are presented in styles that you may not have heard before – as the collection features many unreissued numbers that are making their first reappearance here! CD set comes with a 40 page set of notes – and features 20 tracks in all, including "Please Newsboy" by Eve Barnum, "Burning Spear" by Soulful Strings, "More & More" by Little Milton, "Baltimore Oriole" by Lorez Alexandria, "Soul Vibrations" by Dorothy Ashby, "Evil" by Howlin Wolf, "Stereo Freeze" by The Stereos, "The Way I Feel" by Phil Upchurch, "Mama's Got A Good Thing" by Laura Lee, "The Wailer" by Sonny Cox, "Leave It In The Hands Of Love" by Fontella Bass, "Why Am I Treated So Bad" by The Majestic Choir & The Soul Stirrers, "She Suits Me To A Tee" by Buddy Guy, "Memory Band" by Rotary Connection, and "In My Body's House" by Gene Chandler.

An incredible record – one of the best sides of Latin jazz you could ever hope to find! West coast vibist Bobby Montez had a fantastic sound during the 50s – one that mixed together Latin rhythms in a way that few other players were using. He kind of fixed on a changing modal groove, the sort that would later be used more heavily by Dave Pike or Bobby Vince Paunetto – and he worked his combo like a shifting plate of rhythms, swirling around the grooves on piano, bass, and percussion in a weirdly complicated way, yet never failing to swing, or to hit that right groove for the dancefloor. This 1958 album is a rare gem – the sort that changes hands for hundreds of dollars in the original, and for good reason. It's been lovingly remastered here – and we're pleased as punch that it's finally back out again at a good price! The whole thing's brilliant – with loads of great tracks like "African Fantasy", "Jungle Sunset", "Chango", "Swinging At The M", and "Cha Cha Cha Por Neuva York". CD

New Nina SimoneLittle Girl Blue (aka Jazz As Played In An Exclusive Side Street Club) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Bethlehem, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
A classic set of early jazz recordings by Nina Simone – one of her first albums ever, but already with an approach that's quite different from other singers of the time! Nina's singing a fair bit of standards here, but she brings a deeply personal approach to the material – inflecting the tunes with gospel-inspired soul, and showing some very slight folksy touches – of the sort that would come in more heavily on later records, but which is already shining pretty strongly here! Nina accompanies herself on some mighty soulful piano – with bass from Jimmy Bond and drums from Al Heath – on titles that include "Plain Gold Ring", "Good Bait", "He Needs Me", "Don't Smoke In Bed", and "I Loves You Porgy". CD features 3 bonus tracks, including the excellent groover "African Mailman" – plus "He's Got The Whole World In His Hands" and "For All We Know". CD

New StumpDoes The Fish Have Chips – Early & Late Works 1986 to 1989 ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the oddest groups on the British scene of the 80s – the bass-heavy, bottom-leading Stump – a combo with a really unique sort of sound! At the root of their groove was a Captain Beefheart or Pere Ubu-inspired drive to put subject all instruments to the rhythm – but the execution was often much cleaner, leaner, and somewhat more arty than Beefheart ever was – a sound that was one of the bright lights of the post-post-punk years, and one of the few more experimental modes cracking the mainstream at the time. The group's music was often mixed with a good dose of humor too – thanks to frontman Mick Lynch, whose lyrics were certainly some of the maddest of the Irish-influenced years of British 80s pop. The set features key initial work from Stump from the Mud On A Colon and Quirk Out records – plus Peel Session tracks, and some very important compilation cuts done by the group over their late years. Titles include "Orgasm Way", "Tupperware Stripper", "Grab Hands", "Our Fathers", "Bit Part Actor", "Big End", "Down On The Kitchen Table", "Living It Down", "The Queen & The Pope", "Maggie", "Lipstick Maker", and "Seven Sisters".

New Julius BrockingtonSophisticated Funk ... LP
Today, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Funky keyboard tracks from Julius Brockington – a mad early 70s figure who not only cut some wild funk, but who also ended up doing a fair bit of gospel work in later years. This set's a good bit of stoner funk tracks – in the wilder mode of the Perception/Today label – and it's got production by Boo Frazier and Patrick Adams that is very "hands off" when it comes to Brockington's keys. The track list includes covers of some soul stuff like "Rock Steady" and "Do Your Thing" (which is done in a nice long version), plus a good original called "Cold Water". LP, Vinyl record album

New Townes Van ZandtSunshine Boy – The Unheard Studio Sessions & Demos 1971 to 1972 (clear vinyl) (2013 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Omnivore, 1971/1972. New Copy 3 LPs ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful 3LP set of long buried Townes Van Zandt recordings from the early 70s – a period that you can easily argue was his peak – even though few people were buying his records at the time! You get a pretty solid representation of 2 sides of the Townes sound on this great compilation from Omnivore. Disc One features alternate studio versions of some of our favorite songs – a good deal of which were produced by Cowboy Jack Clement at his Nashville studio in 1972 – plus a handful that Townes recorded in LA a year earlier. These have a sound that are fleshed out enough instrumentally, but without the horns, strings and some of the other grander aspects of the officially released album versions in hopes of breaking Townes through to a larger audience at the time. Ironically, it's the rawness and intimacy that Townes fans are drawn to – and that's what you get here! The second disc features demos that mostly feature just Townes's voice and acoustic guitar – and it's achingly beautiful! Despite the familiar track list, every song on this 2CD set is previously unreleased – and essential for longtime Townes fans and newbies alike! Includes "T For Texas", "Who Do You Love", "Sunshine Boy", "Pancho & Lefty" (an alternate 1972 mix without strings and horns), "Sad Cinderella", "Lungs", "Mr. Mudd & Mr. Gold", "White Freight Liner Blues", "Two Hands" and more on the studio sessions disc – and the titles on the disc of demos includes "Heavenly Houseboat Blues", "Diamond Heel Blues", "Tower Song", "Hightway Kind", "Old Paint", "Standin'" and more. 28 tracks in all – and it features some excellent notes by Colin Escott.

New VariousRolling With The Punches – The Allen Toussaint Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Heavy funk, deep soul, and lots lots more – an amazing testament to the songwriting skills of New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint! Allen was a heck of a singer on his own – but he also worked plenty behind the scenes in the 60s and 70s – lending his tunes to many others, and producing a good number of recordings as well – some of the best of which are featured in this sweet little set! The package features two dozen smoking tunes from the pen of Toussaint – songs that are heavy on influences from New Orleans soul and funk – already sounding great in the hands of other soul singers in the collection, and really helping transform the style of other artists in ways you might not expect. The whole thing's got the same righteous vibe as Allen's best records from the 70s – and titles include "I'll Be Rolling" by Millie Jackson, "Hercules" by Boz Scaggs, "Occapella" by Lee Dorsey, "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by Solomon Burke, "Sweet Touch Of Love" by Irma Thomas, "Sneakin Sally Thru The Alley" by Robert Palmer, "What Do You Want The Girl To Do" by Lowell George, "Shoo Rah" by Frankie Miller, "Fortune Teller" by Benny Spellman, "Freedom For The Stallion" by Bill Medley, "Whoever's Thrilling You" by ZZ Hill, "Tampin" by The Rhine Oaks, "A Certain Girl" by Warren Zevon, and even "Southern Nights" by Glen Campell.

New Meat PuppetsOut My Way (with bonus tracks) ... LP
SST/MVD, 1986. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The Meat Puppets in one of their peak periods – less shambling than on their first few trailblazing records, sure – and kind of recasting ragged rock in their defiantly weird image! They're flirting with more the mainstream rock sound here, but it's still too weird and Meat Puppet-y for most people. Kinda boogie-oriented southwestern hard rock, but wild-eyed and frayed in ever-brilliant ways. Includes "She's Hot", "Out My Way", "Other Kinds Of Love", "Not Swimming Ground", "Mountain Line", their insane take on "Good Golly Miss Molly" (a song that's rambunctious in anyone's hands, but you'll need to sit down after the Meat Puppets version) and more. 2013 reissue includes 4 bonus tracks that weren't on the original vinyl release: "I Just Want To Make Love To You", "On The Move", "Everything Is Green".

New Johnny Hammond SmithThat Good Feelin' ... CD
New Jazz (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Good feelings and plenty of soul – some very early work as a leader from Hammond hero Johnny Smith! The set's got Johnny using the organ with lots of stops out – that full, wide range of the instrument that initially knocked so many folks for a loop when it first came into jazz – then really took strong formation in the hands of a player like this! The groove's a bit like a Jimmy Smith record for Blue Note, but a lot grittier too – with some occasional elements of R&B mixed in with the more far-reaching jazz sensibilities. The group features Thornel Schwartz on guitar, who'd played famously with Jimmy Smith – plus George Tucker on bass and Leo Stevens on drums. Titles include the originals "Puddin" and "That Good Feelin" – plus "My Funny Valentine", "I'll Remember April", and "Billie's Bounce". CD

You know you're in good DJ hands when the setlist plays like a 40 something year history of globetrotting, dancefloor ready jazz and funky soul – spanning the old(er) school styles of Charles Earland, Willis Jackson, Dizzy Gillespie, Pucho & The Latin Soul Brothers and more, plus contemporary torch carriers such as The Qualitons, Cesar's Salad and Deep Jazz. Compiled by Jerker Kluge and Tobias Kirmayer.

Sven LibaekSet (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Philips/Votary (Australia), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 25.98
An Australian sexploitation soundtrack, but one with all the best European elements of the time – thanks to genius work from the continent-hopping Sven Libaek! Sven's got styles here that recall Italian mod, Brit sound library, and dreamy French film scores – including jazzy vocals, slinky instrumentation, bubbling Hammond organ, and even a few bossa nova moments – all wrapped together beautifully in one of the most seductive soundtracks we've ever heard! There's never a dull moment here – and we'd rank this one right up there with Sven's excellent work for underwater adventures and sound library records too – every bit as individual as those, and filled with jazzy goodness. Titles include "Touching Hands", "Love Me", "The Set", "You'll Love It", "The Youngsters", "Partytime At Bronski's", "Start Growing Up Now", and "That's Peg's Affair". LP, Vinyl record album

New OV WrightBottom Line ... LP
Hi Records, 1978. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Great work from OV Wright – one of the few singers who was still strongly carrying the Hi Records torch at the end of the 70s! Although Wright had sometimes been bluesier in the past, his late 70s Hi sides have a much mellower, mature sort of feel – a ripening of the seeds in his Backbeat label work, taken to nice new heights at Hi in the hands of Willie Mitchell. Mitchell's backings have a feel that's somewhat like his work with Al Green, but OV's style of singing is completely different – not as overtly sexy, but really personal in approach. Titles include "That's The Way I Feel About Cha", "A Little More Time", "I Don't Know Why", "No Easy Way To Say Goodbye", "Let's Straighten It Out", and "The Bottom Line". LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousAOR Breaks (deluxe edition) ... CD
Warner (Australia), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Back in the day, it seemed like the only real source for hip hop was old funk and soul records – yet over the years, as production advanced, DJs found plenty of great grooves back in the 70s mainstream – by pillaging great records like this from the glory days of AOR! The set may well be one of the most unique sample collections we've ever heard – as it features a shameless collection of AM radio goodies from the 70s – but which have all grown to live anew in the hands of artists like Biz Markie, Warren G, Nas, Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa, De La Soul, and others! Some of these are tracks we always liked back in the day – numbers that really stood out from others in the mainstream mix – but they seem to get even more of a sparkle in a set like this, especially given the familiarity of the tunes from their re-use in hip hop tracks. Titles include "Lowdown" by Boz Scaggs, "Sailing" by Christopher Cross, "I Keep Forgettin" by Michael McDonald, "Give Me The Night" by George Benson, "Woman To Woman" by Joe Cocker, "Fly Like An Eagle" by Steve Miller, "Africa" by Toto, "I Can't Go For That" by Hall & Oates, "Summer Breeze" by Seals & Crofts, "This Is It" by Kenny Loggins, "Mr Blue" by Michael Franks, and "Tightrope" by Electric Light Orchestra.

Bold, boozy work from Carmen McRae – a wonderfully mature album from that great time when her style was equal parts jazz and soul – put together here by arranger/producer Arif Mardin, a perfect choice for the record! There's a care to the overall presentation not heard in some of McRae's albums from a few years before – not just jazz vocals with a backing group, but a really rich presentation of some hip, modern, all-adult material that somehow sounds even better in Carmen's hands than anyone else. Titles include the sublime title tune "Just A Little Lovin" – plus"Goodbye Joe", "I Love The Life I Live", "Carry That Weight", "Something", "I Want You", "More Today Than Yesterday", and "Didn't We".

New Mississippi SheiksComplete Recorded Works In Chronological Order – Volume 3 (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Document/Third Man, 1931/1932. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
If you've never got the concept of a string band, this is the record to really illuminate your ears – as it features a beautiful set of stripped-down sides by the Mississippi Sheiks – all recorded in the early 30s, and a wonderful blend of bluesy inflection and folksy roots! Most tracks just features guitar, violin, and some especially great vocals – pushed with lots of delta-styled elements on the edges, but set to music that's got plenty of touches from the other side of the fence. The blend is wonderful, and the set features tracks recorded in Atlanta in October of 1931, and Grafton, Wisconsin in July of 1932. Titles include "Bed Spring Poker", "Things About Comin My Way", "Kind Treatment", "Livin In A Strain", "Lazy Lazy River", "Too Long", "Shake Hands & Tell Me Goodbye", "When You're Sick With The Blues", and "It's A Pain To Me".
