Julius BrockingtonSophisticated Funk ... LP
Today, 1972. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
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

Tyrone DavisTurning Point (with bonus track) ... CD
Dakar/Solid (Japan), 1975. New Copy .... $22.99
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

Bob Downes Open MusicYou're Funkin' Good ... CD
Bob Downes Music, 2001. New Copy .... $4.99
A clunky title, a so-so cover, a later recording date – and yet, the record's wonderful overall – a surprisingly funky effort from British reedman Bob Downes! The album is Bob's tribute to funky sounds oif the 60s and 70s – and although it includes a few tracks penned by Downes back in the day, the music was recorded in the past decade or so – yet done with a surprisingly classic feel overall – one that really serves the funky style of the music very well! The group is very stripped-down – just a trio with electric bass and keyboards, plus Downes on tenor, alto, flute, soprano sax, and even a bit of vocals – the kind of shouted, James Brown-chorus type – which are processed here to give them a really offbeat sound. The whole thing's pretty great – and you can bet that if this was a small label pressing from the US scene of a few decades back, it would be changing hands for a pretty penny. Titles include "Afro Swing", "Happy Funk", "A Man Without A Woman", "Pow Wow", "Funky Groove", "Hottin Up", "C'Mon Baby", and "You're Funkin Good". CD

Marvin GayeThat Stubborn Kinda Of Fellow ... CD
Motown/Universal (Japan), 1963. New Copy .... $13.99
Early genius from Marvin Gaye – a set that's one of his first biggest hit-making albums for Motown, and for good reason too! Gaye's really come a long way here in just a few short years – hitting hard on the album's title hit, with that trademark rasp that would only get stronger and more charming by the end of the 60s. The backings pack a punch too – pure Motown 60s soul all the way through, with backing vocals from Martha & The Vandellas – although Marvin's own lead is more than strong enough on its own! Titles include the big title hit "Stubborn Kind Of Fellow" – plus "Hitch Hike", "Get My Hands On Some Lovin", "It Hurt Me Too", "Pride & Joy", and "Wherever I Lay My Hat" – all written by a young Marvin!

Syl JohnsonSyl Johnson With Melody Whittle ... CD
Twinight, 2013. New Copy .... $8.99 9.99
Syl Johnson, back in action and sounding great – and working here with key help from the younger generation too! As the title indicates, Johnson's singing here with up-and-coming vocalist Melody Whittle – a contemporary artist, but one with deep soul touches that work perfectly with Syl's classic approach – all wrapped up here with a style that's partly old school, and partly that modern evolution of the southern soul style you might find on a label like Malaco – further proof that Johnson just keeps on growing after all these years! Daughter Syleena makes an appearance on the set, and shades things in with some of her own flavors too – and titles include a few remakes of old tracks too. Tracks include "Mr Invisible", "I'm With You Too", "Turn Back The Hands Of Time", "Is It Because I'm Black 2006", "Ms Fine Brown Frame", "Loving On The Run", "Baby I'm Scared Of You", "Goodie Goodie Good Times", "Mellow Down Easy", "I'm Just A Freak For You", and "Just Make Love To You".

Meat PuppetsOut My Way (with bonus tracks) ... LP
SST/MVD, 1986. New Copy (reissue).... $17.99 19.99
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".

O'JaysLove Train – Best Of The O'Jays ... CD
Legacy, Early 70s. Used .... $1.99
10 tracks from one of the biggest vocal groups of the 70s! The O'Jays had been knocking around other labels for some time during the mid and late 60s, but when they hooked up with the Gamble & Huff team at the burgeoning Philadelphia International label, things really started taking off! Gamble & Huff's strident approach to soul provided the perfect foil for the band's soaring harmonies – and the result was a full-on sound that sounded great both in the clubs, or blaring out of a small AM radio. Ten tracks aren't nearly enough to give you the full picture of the group's genius – but you'll get a pretty good start with classics like "Love Train", "Back Stabbers", "Livin For The Weekend", "I Love Music", "Survival", "For The Love Of Money", and "Put Your Hands Together".

Bethlehem, Early 60s. Very Good .... $19.99
We're not sure if Bethlehem pulled this nice little collection of its all star cast of female vocalists together as a loss leader, or kind of after the fact to re-capitalize on some of their recordings, but you can't argue with the stellar lineup, featuring a dozen tracks by some of the finest female jazz vocalists of the day: "He's Got The Whole World In His Hands", "I Loves You, Porgy", "For All We Know" and "African Mailman" by Nina Simone, "Cottage For Sale", "What Is There To Say", "Try a Little Tenderness" and "Good Bye" by Chris Connor, and "Old Devil Moon", "You Made Me Care", "Last Time For Love" and "To Much In Love To Care" by Carmen McRae.

Johnny Hammond SmithThat Good Feelin' ... CD
New Jazz (Japan), 1959. New Copy .... $22.99
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". CD

Bobby Stevens & The Checkmates LtdLife ... LP
Rustic, Early 70s. Near Mint- .... $9.99
Obscure material by Bobby Stevens & The Checkmates – recorded after their baroque soul album for A&M, with arrangements by Bobby and the band. The record's kind of a concept album – in which Bobby performs poems and monologues between each song, then rolls into covers of late 60s pop and soul hits like "Walk On By", "My Girl", "Turn Back The Hands Of Time", and "I Am I Said". The format's pretty good, and the band gets a bit trippy on the best cuts, although they still stay pretty close to the heavy Checkmates sound of the late 60s. LP, Vinyl record album

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 .... $53.99
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.

Bill WithersJust As I Am (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sussex/4 Men With Beards, 1971. New Copy (reissue).... $18.99 21.99
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

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.

VariousChicago Soul – Electric Blues, Funk & Soul – The New Sound Of Chicago In The 1960's ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s. New Copy .... $22.99
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.

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.

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.

VariousRolling With The Punches – The Allen Toussaint Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy .... $14.99
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 Bobby MontezJungle Fantastique ... CD
CuBop/Ubiquity, 1958. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
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

Killer hard female soul! Fontella Bass was one of the best voices of the 60s – and she cut a lot of great work besides her one huge hit "Rescue Me" (which everyone always seems to think was by Aretha Franklin anyway!) This CD brings together 16 great tracks from her years at Chess, when she was brought to the label by Oliver Sain, who also handled most of the recordings. The sound here is pure and simple hard soul, with none of the more sophisticated stuff that Bass got into later, after hooking up with Lester Bowie. Titles include "Recovery", "The Soul Of A Man", "Don't Mess Up A Good Thing", "Don't Jump", "Leave It In The Hands Of Love", and "Joy Of Love". Also features a few duets with Bobby McClure, and a previously unissued track. CD

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

New VariousChicago Soul – Electric Blues, Funk & Soul – The New Sound Of Chicago In The 1960's ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s. Used .... 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.

New Meat PuppetsOut My Way ... LP
SST, 1986. Used .... 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.

New OdysseyOdyssey (RCA) ... LP
RCA, 1977. Used .... Out Of Stock
A crossover classic from the late 70s – a record that was born in the clubs, but bred in the mainstream – and the start of a very good relationship between Odyssey and RCA! The album will forever be known for its classic cut "Native New Yorker" – a seminal groover that balances disco rhythms with mainstream 70s soul – but overall, the record's got even more to offer than that gem – including some surprisingly well-done mellower cuts that really make great use of the vocals of Lillian and Louise Lopez. Production is by Sandy Linzer and Charles Calello – the latter of whom is clearly right at home with the groovers – and in addition to "Native New Yorker", other cuts include "Ever Lovin Sam", "You Keep Me Dancin", "Thank You God For One More Day", "Weekend Lover", "Easy Come Easy Go", and "Golden Hands".

Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy 2 x 10" .... Out Of Stock
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 in an ultra-cool 10" vinyl package – 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 – Part A ... LP
Z Records (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 LPs Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
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. Part 1 of this vinyl version features Joey Negro mixes of "The Same Old Scene" by Roxy Music, "Welcome To Our World" by Mass Production, "Over & Over" by Ashford & Simpson, "I Love To Dance" by Kleeer, "Haven't You Heard" by Patrice Rushen, "Tonight" by Narada Michael Walden, "Love Money" by TW Funkmasters, and "Hit & Run" by Loleatta Holloway.

New Julius BrockingtonSophisticated Funk ... LP
Today, 1972. Used .... 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
(Vinyl has numerous marks and plays with some crackling and clicks. Cover is worn, with split seams mostly held together by tape.)

A live battle between the Cold Crush Brothers and the Fantasic 5, with DJ's Grand Wizard Theodore, Charlie Chase and Tony Tone. Recorded live at the Harlem World in 1981. There may be a few parts where the "Throw your hands in the air" chants go on a little long, but there are also some amazing freestyle (and written) MC'ing. Also, a good glimpse of what live hip hop sounded like way back then. LP, Vinyl record album

Carmen McRaeJust A Little Lovin ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1970. New Copy .... $15.99
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".

Mississippi SheiksComplete Recorded Works In Chronological Order – Volume 3 (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Document/Third Man, 1931/1932. New Copy .... $16.99 19.99
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".

New Main IngredientShame On The World/I Only Have Eyes For You ... CD
RCA/Expansion (UK), 1975/1981. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Two great ones from The Main Ingredient – back to back on a single CD! First up is I Only Have Eyes For You, a great later album from the Main Ingredient – professional, polished, and filled with wonderful harmony vocals! Maestro Patrick Adams arranged and produced the set – and he gives the record a really wonderful sound that's light years from his indie club work of the early 70s – a tight approach to vocal group soul that still lets the harmonies shine wonderfully, but which also takes them into more mature, sophisticated territory. Cuba Gooding's returned to the group, and his beautiful vocals are a very welcome (re)addition to their sound – and the album's got some key midtempo groovers that stand with some of the group's best work. Titles include "Party People", "Only", "Evening of Love", "Just Once", "All Because of You", "Rediscover Me", and a great modern soul remake of "I Only Have Eyes For You". Next up is Shame On The World – an album from 6 years earlier, but a great step forward for The Main Ingredient – a record that's still got all the harmony soul charm of their earlier work for RCA, but with a tighter feel overall – one that has them moving into the same mature group soul mode as The Manhattans over at Columbia! Production and arrangements are by Cuba Gooding and Luther Simmons of the group, with some help from Rene Hall on arrangements too – and the sound is polished, but never slick – a tightening up of the early 70s group soul sound, but in ways that sparkle even more than before! Titles include "Shame On The World", "Let Me Prove My Love To You", "Over You", "Old Greyhound", "Jamaica", "Put Your Love In My Hands", and "Lillian". CD also features the bonus track "Spoiled". CD

New VariousPhilly Regrooved (180 gram 8LP set) ... LP
Harmless (UK), 1970s. New Copy 8 LPs .... Out Of Stock
A limited edition box set – featuring the first vinyl appearance of mixes from the excellent Philly Regrooved CD series! The work is a Philly soul dream come true – classic 70s material from the legendary Philly Groove label and other local imprints, all remixed by the legendary Tom Moulton! Tom's already known for work on countless club and disco gems from back in the day – including a fair bit of classics for the Salsoul label – but here, he turns his talents to the Philly Groove label – one of the first companies to really come up with the Philadelphia groove of the 70s – that sweet blend of quick rhythms, soaring instrumentation, and soulful vocals that made the City Of Brotherly Love one of the hippest scenes at the time. And although we love these cuts in their originals, they sound even better here in the hands of Moulton – really extended remixes of 40 tracks that include "Look Me Up" by Blue Magic, "Be Thankful For What You've Got" by William DeVaughn, "I Can't Fight Your Love" by The Modulations, "Standing Right Here" by Melba Moore, "When The Game Is Played On You" by Betty Swann, "One Of A Kind Love Affair" by The Spinners, "Got To Get You Back" by Sons Of Robin Stone, "I Told You So" by The Delfonics, "Second Best" by Finishing Touch, "Gonna Keep On Lovin Him" by First Choice, "Beware She's Pulling My Strings" by The Quickest Way Out, "I'm Hopelessly In Love With You" by Moment Of Truth, "Action Speaks Louder Than Words" by Terry Collins, "Straight From The Heart" by Loose Change, "Big Stone Wall" by Tapestry, "Put Yourself In My Place" by TJM, "Whatcha Gonna Do" by Heaven N Hell, "I'm Doin Fine Now" by New York City, "I Just Can't Say Goodbye" by Philly Devotions, and "We're On The Right Track" by Ultra High Frequency.

Hip-O, Late 40s/1950s/1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 4 CDs .... Out Of Stock
A career-spanning BB King anthology in a heavy-duty box – nicely representative of his roots and evolution over the decades – and including a great 64-page, hardback booklet of essay and photos! The CDs are chronological – with Disc One covering 1949-1964, Disc Two taking care of the rest of the fertile decade of the 60s, Disc Three spanning 1970-1983 and Disc Four from 1984 to 2003. Ladies & Gentleman. . . , simply put, has to be our favorite of all the BB King retrospectives we've seen. His styles over the years are so well consolidated, and the material that's chosen is so prime – from the early talking blues, to the show-stopping 60s electric blues, to the best of late career highlights – it's hard to find much fault! Even the packaging is handsome – and it's got 77 songs on 4CDs: "When Your Baby Packs Up", "Three O'Clock", "You Upset Me Baby", "Night Life", "The Thrill Is Gone", "Lucille", "Why I Sing The Blues", "Nobody Loves Me But My Daughter", "Chains And Things", "Guess Who", "Ghetto Woman", "Let The Good Times Roll (Live)", "Into The Night", :When Loves Comes To Town", "I'm Moving On", "Caldonia", "Ten Long Years", "See That My Grave Is Kept Clean" and many, many more.
