BlackbyrdsWalking In Rhythm – The Essential Selection 1973 to 1980 ... LP
Fantasy/Decision, 1970s. New Copy 3 LPs ... $16.99 23.98
Some of the sharpest, jazziest funk you'll ever hope to hear – a smoking collection of the legendary 70s work by The Blackbyrds on Fantasy Records! The group started as a jazz combo under Donald Byrd's supervision – right at a time when Byrd was making his own fantastic funky records in the 70s – but working for the Bay Area Fantasy label, they really took off into an amazing groove that was all their own – still informed by jazz, but free to open up to lots of funk and soul elements too – sometimes with vocals in the lead, sometimes more focus on the kinds of solos that always set them apart from all their contemporaries! The cuts have some wonderful keyboard work from a young Kevin Toney – who's gone onto a lot of fame over the years – and production on all cuts is either by Larry Mizell, Donald Byrd, or George Duke – key 70s jazz funk forces who keep things mighty tight in the studio! The package features work from all Blackbyrds albums of the 70s – including the Cornbread Earl & Me soundtrack, and the Night Grooves remix set – and the package features 25 titles that include "Enter In", "Party Land", "Do It Fluid", "Gut Level", "Summer Love", "I Need You", "The Baby", "Blackbyrds' Theme", "City Life", "Rock Creek Park", "Walking In Rhythm", "A Hot Day Today", "Wilford's Gone", "One Gun Salute", "Supernatural Feeling", "Mysterious Vibes", and "Soft & Easy".

New Keith HudsonPlaying It Cool & Playing It Right ... LP
Basic Replay/Joint International (Germany), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
A rare side from Keith Hudson, teaming up with Bullwackie Barnes for a mighty set – two of our favorite producers in one place – and one that's been painfully hard to come by for some time. Issued originally on the Joint International imprint in the early 80s, we can't remember the last time we came across a copy of this set, featuring deep space dub mixes, with gut rumbling bass and murky reverb following hot on the heels of their vocal accompaniment, voiced by Wayne Jarrett, the Lovejoys and Hudson himself. A dozen jams in all, including "Playing It Cool", "Playing It Right Dub", "Trust & Believe", "By Night Dub", "Not Good For Us", "Be What You Want To Be" and "Still Need You Dub".

Mary LoveLay This Burden Down – The Very Best Of Mary Love ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $14.99
An amazing journey in soul music – told not just in the music, but in the detailed notes of the set as well! Mary Love is a singer who never broke big, but who cut some wonderful records on the LA scene of the 60s and 70s – a range of work that rivals some of the better-known female soul work from Detroit or Philly at the time! Mary's got a gut-wrenching vocal style that comes through right away – set up initially with these upbeat, uptempo grooves for the set's first half of Modern Records sessions – then holding strong through a batch of material for other labels that include Josie, Elco, Generation, and Modern Disc. Most material here is in a Northern Soul vein, and a few of the later cuts have a more modern soul vibe – all to match the shift in Mary's tragic life, as told in the notes within. Titles include "Joy", "I'm In Your Hands", "You Turned My Bitter Into Sweet", "Hey Stoney Face", "Think It Over", "Move A Little Closer", "Is That You", "Talkin About My Man", "There's Someone For Me", and "Power Of Your Love".

New Direction UnitLive At Moers Festival (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $22.99
The group here definitely earns the "new direction" in their name – as they work at a level that's quite compelling – kind of their own variant of free jazz, but with a spaciousness that's definitely spiritual – and which also seems to reflect some elements of more traditional Japanese music too! The tracks are all quite long – and have a really different flavor, even as they each progress – no surprise given that the instrumentation is quite varied, even amidst the quintet of musicians – with Masayuki Takayanagi on electric guitar and gut guitar; Kenji Mori on alto, floute, clarinet, and shinobue; Akira Iijima on electric guitar and gut guitar; Nobuyoshi Ino on cello, and Yasuhiro Yamazaki on drums and a variety of percussion. Titles include "Bohimei", "Resistance", "Mass Hysterism", and a compelling take on "Subconscious Lee". CD

The set is a very loving tribute to 60's soul, and includes a huge mix of tracks – popular and obscure – packaged in a cool replica of an original box that holds old singles. The CDs themselves are packaged in tiny sleeves that replicate classic Atlantic, Motown, and other sleeves – and you get a cool book, collector cards, and lots lots more!

BlackbyrdsBlackbyrds ... CD
Fantasy (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Around September 24, 2014
A funky jazz treasure – and the band's landmark first album! The Blackbyrds were a legendary 70s combo that were discovered by Donald Byrd while he was teaching at Howard University – and they had a tight style that mixed raw funk influences with smoother jazz playing, creating a sound that was different from many of their contemporaries, and which pushed funk and soul into a whole new level. Byrd's work with the band was as groundbreaking as Larry Mizell's work on his own Blue Note albums – and coincidentally, Larry Mizzell's Sky High Productions handles the studio chores for the set – but in a way that's much more sharply funky than his albums with Byrd! Titles include the tight choppy funk tracks "Do It, Fluid" and "Funky Junkie", plus other nice groovers like "Summer Love", "Gut Level", and "The Runaway". CD

New BlackbyrdsNight Grooves ... LP
Fantasy/BGP (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great album of funky dancefloor tunes! Originally issued in 1978, and clearly for the New York dancefloor crowd – the record takes the earlier work of funk group The Blackbyrds, and remixes the tracks slightly to pump up the groove a bit for the dancers. While the approach might not sound good on paper, it actually works wonderfully on the record – as the tunes retain all of the jazz funk feel of the originals, without any of the cheap tricks you might expect. The album's as essential as any of the group's earlier albums – and it's filled with great versions of classics like "Supernatural Feeling", "Gut Level", "Walking In Rhythm", "Do It Fluid", "Rock Creek Park", and "Happy Music".

New Nick ToschesSave The Last Dance For Satan (paperback) ... Book
Norton/Kicks, 2011. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Yeah, THIS is the Nick Tosches we want! Tosches has a way of chronicling the diseased, mobbed up underbelly of the 20th Century music rackets that's simply unrivaled – it's gut level brilliant and street smart writing like no one does anymore. Save The Last Dance For Satan is a more fleshed out and newly spun continuation of material published more than a decade ago as Hipsters And Hoodlums in Vanity Fair (boy, mainstream magazine content sure has changed a bunch since 2000) – chronicling the sleaze and criminality at the core of the 50s & 60s music biz. It's great! His best stuff has often read with the sweaty, intoxicating allure of seedy pulp storytelling, so it's with the utmost pleasure to see his work put out by Kicks Books - which literally puts Tosches' work in just that kind of old school hip pocket paperback! He joins Andre Williams (whose "Jailbait" single is mentioned early in this book as the badass antidote to mid 50s candy-coated rock & roll that it most certainly was) and Sun Ra at Kicks. A couple of Tosches' more recent books have been a tough slog – more about his own near obsessive search for impossibly hidden subjects than anything else – but this slim 120 page tome is the opposite – it has us slobbering for more!

Mose AllisonCreek Bank ... LP
Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $14.99
One of Mose's best early albums – even though he hardly gets a chance to sing on it! The album features some great work by Allison's trio of the time – Addison Farmer on bass and Ronnie Free on drums – simple piano-driven groovers, performed with a slight gutbuckety approach, and lots of sweet down home soul. Mose sings a bit on the classic "Seventh Son", a groover that's kept him going for years, and on the great tune "If You Live", which also has a similar feel. Other tracks include "Mule", "If I Didn't Care", "Moon & Cypress", and "Creek Bank". LP, Vinyl record album

Classic early material from these godfathers of the German prog scene – 1969's Phallus Dei – the first LP from the "II" grouping of the Duul commune! Phallus Dei encompasses everything from free jazz, to spiraling psychedelia and outright space jams – all graced with the group's trademark oddball vocal flourishes! A pivotal moment of late psych and early prog – and titles include the side-long, 20+ minute masterpiece "Phallus Dei" – plus "Luzifers Gholom", "Kanaan", "Dem Guten, Schonen, Wahren", and "Henriette Krotenschwanz".

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

Art BlakeyArt Blakey & The Jazz Messengers At The Jazz Corner Of The World Vols 1 & 2 ... CD
Blue Note, 1959. Used 2CDs ... $24.99
Killer live material! Although the Jazz Messengers often recorded at Birdland (aka The Jazz Corner Of The World), the two albums on this disc are some of their best – and rarest – from that venue! The set features both volumes of these rare releases – which caught Blakey's group in an under-recorded transitional time when the lineup included new guard players Lee Morgan and Bobby Timmons, plus old guard tenor giant Hank Mobley. The mix is beautiful, and has a lot more gutbucket soul than the later sessions with Wayne Shorter. Tracks are all pretty long – and filled with live fire and frenzy. Titles include "Hipsippy Blues", "Justice", "Just Coolin", "Art's Revelation", and "M&M". CD

Mary J BligeLove & Life (limited edition with bonus DVD) ... CD
Geffen, 2003. Used CD & DVD ... $4.99
The queen of hip hop soul takes it back to the gutter with guest spots by Jay-Z and P-Diddy on "Love & Life", 50 Cent on "Let Me Be The One", and Method Man on "Love @ 1st Sight", but overall this one has Mary in a better mood than the last album! You've probably heard by now that Mary's got Diddy back on the boards for most of the album, and the production is, for the most part anyway, no nonsense and unfussy. This appropriately makes Mary's great-as-always lead vocals the star of the show. Dr. Dre produced "Not Today", and we'd like to hear more of that team, but that's pretty much our only complaint! Other tracks include "Don't Go", "When We", "Ooh!", "Willing & Waiting", "Free", "It's A Wrap", "All My Love" and more. CD

Jaki ByardOut Front! ... LP
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.

Wonderful work from the team of Donald Byrd and Gigi Gryce! Byrd is at his youthful best here – blowing with a soulful imagination that's surprising, given his young age, and honed to a modern edge by the arrangements of Gryce. Conversely, Gryce's tone on the alto is fantastic – less measured than on other albums, and perhaps given a bit more of a gutsy push by his work here with Byrd. Of course, the rest of the group helps, too – and with Art Taylor on drums, Tommy Flanagan on piano, and Wendell Marshall on bass, the whole set grooves nicely! Titles include "Little Niles", "Sans Souci", "Nica's Tempo", and "Speculation". CD

Island/Culture Factory (France), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99 18.99
Dazzling work from John Cale – exactly the kind of record that shows why his solo years were so great! The record's got this unusual vibe – on one hand, it's put together like a more conventional rock set of the time – but on the other, it's got strange dark currents that run through the whole thing in very weird ways – a bit like some of the Roxy Music edges from the early years. No surprise, both Brian Eno and Phil Manzanera contribute strongly to the set – but the energy of the record definitely comes from Cale's great songwriting and offbeat vocals – and his great ear for a weird-sounding tune. Titles include "Mr Wilson", "Rollaroll", "Ski Patrol", "Guts", "The Jeweller", and Cale's famous version of "Heartbreak Hotel". CD

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!

The cover's got a picture of Bo holding a conventional hollow-body – nice and echoey, and a bit different than his later trademark square guitar – but the sound is still loud and proud throughout. Titles include "Bo Diddley", "I'm A Man", "Hey Bo Diddley", "Bring It To Jerome", "Say Bossman", "Diddley Daddy", "Hush Your Mouth", and "Who Do You Love". CD

William Eaton's vocals are wonderful – kind of crackly and personal, and a great complement to the tight jazzy instrumentation of the record – produced by Ralph MacDonald, who works with Eaton to give the record some of the cool complicated elements of his own records of the time. There's loads of great musicians on the date – saxes from Michael Brecker and Tom Scott, trumpet from Randy Brecker, and guitar from Eric Gale – and the set's also got some guest vocal moments, these cool kind of "characters" that appear in songs – provided by Gwen Guthrie, Yolanda McCullough, Zachary Sanders, Vivian Cherry, and others.

The record's one of a few that the St Louis player got to cut for the label – and it's a tightly-crafted combo effort that features Hugh Lawson on piano, Tommy Potter on bass, and Clarendon Johnson on drums – plus a bit of added conga from Ray Barretto, bringing in that extra "kick" that pushed off other great soul jazz sessions from the time! Tracks are short, and have a good focus on Forrest's wonderful tone – and titles include "Sonny Boy", "Annie Laurie", "I Love You", "Most Much", "Soft Winds", "Matilda", and "Autumn Leaves". CD

Freeman's one of those talents that we're especially happy to have grown up with – a musician who taught us plenty on the inside that we thought could only happen on the outside – subtle sounds, twists, and turns in his music that always kept us listening, even when the setting might seem familiar. And here, the tunes are all ones you've heard, but Freeman delivers them in a deeply personal way – blowing tenor with a gutbuckety depth, yet none of the gutbuckety cliches that always make us hate the word "gutbuckety" so much. No too-hard Texas tenor, no bop retro rehash, just clear Chicago soul – handled by Von in ways that nobody else can touch. Players include Jodie Christian on piano, Eddie DeHaas on bass, and Wilbur Campbell on drums – and titles include "All About Ronnie", "I Love You", "A Nightingale Sang In Berkely Square", "Lester Leaps In", and "Scrapple From The Apple".

Curtis FullerSouth American Cookin' ... CD
Epic (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $13.99
Not Curtis Fuller in South America, but a record that picks up a very slight Latin vibe in the rhythm – which makes for a nice change from Fuller's sessions for Blue Note! The date was recorded during that great short run of soul jazz cookers on early 60s Epic Records – and is a perfect talent for the well-voiced solo talents of Fuller – which really take great fire in a group that also includes Zoot Sims on tenor, Tommy Flanagan on piano, and Dave Bailey on drums. The record's got some of the gutbuckety energy of Bailey's classic sets for Epic at the same time – a strong recommendation from us – and titles include "One Note Samba", "Besame Mucho", and "Wee Dot".

Lesley GoreGirl Talk (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Mercury/Ace (UK), 1964/1965. New Copy ... $14.99
Really tremendous work from Lesley Gore – and just the sort of record to show that she's way more than just another girl singer from the 60s! The sound here is incredibly groovy right from the start – a mix not just of the romping arrangements of Claus Ogerman (in his best Soul Searching mode), and the production of Quincy Jones – but also of Gore's great vocals, which have this surprising tinge of sexuality – and a depth that comes from the unique style of folding over her lead in the studio, to create a wide-flanged vocal approach! There's a sense of guts and lust here that goes past the usual weepy girl pop modes – a style that undeniably had an influence on other singers like Dusty Springfield or Cilla Black. Titles include "Hey Now", "You've Come Back", "Say Goodbye", "Live & Learn", "Movin Away", "It's Just About This Time", and "I Wish I Were A Boy". CD features 13 more bonus tracks too – including "That's The Boy", "After He Takes Me Home", "Consolation Prize", "A Girl In Love", "What Am I Gonna Do With You", and "You Didn't Look Round". CD

Bennie GreenBennie Green Blows His Horn ... CD
Prestige (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $22.99
Bennie Green blows his horn – and really blows us away in the process! Green emerges here as one of the most biting trombonists of the postwar years – a player who can handle his instrument with a deftness usually heard more on a trumpet – a sense of phrasing that's incredibly sharp and on the money, and which mixes here with some wicked lead lines from Charlie Rouse on tenor sax! Rouse has all his early gutbuckety tones firmly intact – and steps out here in a group that also features Cliff Smalls on piano, Paul Chambers on bass and Osie Johnson on drums. Candido plays conga on half the record – and titles include the classic "Groovin the Blues", plus "Body & Soul", "Say Jack", "Sometimes I'm Happy", "One Track", "Hi Yo Silver", and "Laura". CD

Maybe the most amazing collection we've ever seen of the work of Woody Guthrie – not just for the music included, but for all the extra bits too! The core contents are already the stuff of legend – 6 CDs that feature the complete Library Of Congress recordings that Guthrie did with Alan Lomax – issued here together for the first time, and easily one of the greatest representations of Woody's genius and amazing spirit! The package also features some home demo recordings never heard before, including songs done for a VD health program – plus radio skits, and some other wartime radio performances too. The package also includes a DVD – Roll On Columbia/Woody Guthrie & The Bonneville Power Administration – plus book-length notes, pdf files of transcriptions of the songs and spoken materials, unpublished photos, unpublished drawings by Guthrie, and even a rare 78rpm single – with Bob Dylan singing "VD City" on one side, and Woody singing an unreleased version of "The Biggest Thing That Man Has Ever Done" on the other!

David HessLast House On The Left – Original 1972 Motion Picture Soundtrack ... LP
One Way Static, 1972. New Copy Gatefold ... $15.99 24.98
David Hess's chillingly great soundtrack to one of the most notorious horror movies of the 70s – Wes Craven's Last House On The Left! Hess's musical pedigree is that of a folk and rock songwriter – and one of the things that makes his songs for Last House On The Left so effective is the way his delicate, tuneful songcraft contrasts with the terrifyingly real sadism and revenge on screen. The other thing that makes it so effective, is that Hess himself portrays the despicable Krug in the film – taking part in said cruelty! The soundtrack has Hess's oddly lovely little songs, along with some incidental period touches, swatches of dialogue and instrumental bits – composed in collaboration with Steve Chapin. This version from One Way Static is totally top notch, too – with liner notes by exploitation cinema and genre veterans Ruggero Deodato, Franco Nero, Ulli Lommel and others. Includes "Little Cows Lookin' For Some Grass", "Baddie's Theme (Instrumental)", "Mari's Birthday Surprise", "Phyllis Spills Her Guts", "Now You're All Alone", "The Chase", "Daddy, Put Your Coat Of Many Colors On", "Mayhem Montage", "Ice Cream Song", "Urban Snatch", "Edude For Chainsaw/Goodbye, Dick" and more.

Beautiful work from Jamal's early Chicago years – and a perfectly titled set that really gets at the differences he made in modern jazz! The tunes are wonderfully fluid, soulful, and swinging – but not in the gutbuckety style of other trios of the time, more in a lightly modern style that features almost equal interplay between Jamal's piano, the bass of Israel Crosby, and the guitar of the wonderful Ray Crawford – who really ads an amazing touch to the record. Tracks include the great original "New Rhumba", plus cool versions of "Jeff", "Darn That Dream", "Spring Is Here", and "All Of You". CD

New JJ JohnsonJJ Inc (second cover) ... LP

JJ Johnson's greatest album – without a doubt! This gem of a session was recorded in 1960 in New York, with an incredibly hip sextet that includes Cedar Walton, Clifford Jordan, and Freddie Hubbard. The tracks are all long, hip, and very much in a Blue Note soul jazz mode – very unusual not only for Johnson, but for Columbia records as well. The album feels like it should have been issued on Epic, with those killer Dave Bailey sides from 1961 – which might be why it has frequently gotten lost in Johnson's career, hidden amidst some of the sleepier material that seems to see the light of day more often than this one. The album's a stone winner all the way through – and features Johnson playing some of his gutsiest solos ever. Tracks include "Minor Mist", "In Walked Horace", "Fatback", "Aquarius", and "Shutterbug". LP, Vinyl record album

Sharon Jones & The Dap KingsNaturally ... LP
Daptone, 2004. New Copy ... $13.99 16.98
The long-anticipated second album from Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings is a stunner – undoubtedly stronger than the group's fantastic debut – and a record that not only transcends the late model funk revival genre, but stands on footing as solid as the best hard funky soul of the late 60s and early 70s! If you're expecting a rehash of the heavy funk jams that burned on the Dap Dippin' album you won't be disappointed, but get ready for a deep, natural (hence the title) soulfulness that not only caught us off guard, but really forms the big, hard-beating heart of the album. The frothing, frenetic funk is as tight as ever, and in spots just as furious, but the attention to songcraft this time out is just as searing and indelible. The eight piece Dap Kings continue to be the best band in the land – with El Michels on baritone sax, Neal Sugarman on tenor, Homer Steinweiss on drums, not-so-secret weapon Bosco Mann on bass, vibes and piano. Guest appearances include fellow Daptone powerhouse vocalist Lee Fields on the the duet "Stranded In Your Love", and strings courtesy of the Bushwick Philharmonic, but make no mistake, this is the band's album. Amazing stuff from in indispensable group – an album that'll keep spinning in our circles for as many years as the great albums by the gritty soul forefathers do! Tracks include "How Do I Let A Good Man Down?", "Natural Born Lover", "My Man Is A Mean Man", a soulful reading of Woodie Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land", "Your Thing Is A Drag", "Fish In A Dish" and "All Over Again".

The groove's overflowing with tight wah wah guitar, topped off by some nice chromatic Willie Hutch-like work – all in service of Sharon's fierce vocals in the lead! "This Land" is a remake of the classic – taken to soul territory with a slow funk groove that's outta site – and in a style that we're sure Woody Guthrie would have approved himself! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Robin KenyattaEncourage The People (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Wolf/Clinck (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $24.99
Post-Atlantic work from Robin Kenyatta – but an album that follows in a very similar mode! This date was done for the Wolf subsidiary of TK Records, but it's got a very hip New York groove – one that's almost even more righteous than some of Robin's earlier work, with some excellent arrangements from Arthur Jenkins – who's managed to fill the set with a great sense of soul! Kenyatta's alto and soprano sax are set up with keyboards from Jenkins and Richard Tee, plus bass, guitar, percussion, and some great backing vocals at points – used sparingly, but in ways that almost remind us of Oneness Of Juju at some of their smoother moments. Kenyatta's reeds have a Plunky-like feel too – more inside than the Juju work of the mid 70s, but pointing towards Plunky's smoother sounds to come. Given that the vocal group features Gwen Guthrie, Vivian Cherry, and Patti Austin, you can bet they sound pretty sweet – and titles on the set include "Love Me", "Oh Oh Oh", "You", "Bluebird", and "Of Life & Love".

A brilliant 70s comeback for Ben E King – a record that shows the world that his vocals are still some of the best in soul, long after his early hits – and a massively mature effort that also grooves like a mofo! King's style here is completely different than before – rich, full, and a bit clubby in parts – perfectly put together by maestro Bert DeCoteaux with a smooth-stepping groove that draws a lot from the best Philly work of the 70s – a surprisingly great fit for Ben's wonderful vocals. Gwen Guthrie co-wrote a number of the cuts on the record, too – and also sings a bit of backup – and titles include the seminal "Supernatural Thing", a perennial dancefloor fave that's offered up here in 2 parts – plus "Your Lovin Ain't Good Enough", "Do It In The Name Of Love", "Imagination", "Do You Wanna Do A Thing", and "What Do You Want Me To Do" – and a great version of Sam Dees' "Extra Extra".

Excellent early work from Roland Kirk – not as groundbreaking as later sessions, but still filled with fire and imagination, and proof that the famous blind player was a genius even at an early age! Kirk plays alto, tenor, and soprano – and on all tracks, he plays them in his unique "3-in-1" style, in which he's actually blowing all horns at the same time! The result is an incredible sound, unlike anyone else we can think of – and it's an amazingly raw tone that still swings very hard. Players include Jimmy Madison on piano, Carl Pruitt on bass, and Hank Duncan on drums – a really rootsy quartet that helps Roland hit a really gutbuckety sound on the record. Titles include "Triple Threat", "Slow Groove", "Roland's Theme", "Easy Living", "The Nearness Of You", and "A La Carte". LP, Vinyl record album

But Sutch himself is pretty great too – kind of a mish-mash of late 60s nasty camp references, with the same sinister vibe as Kim Fowley – and an equally freewheeling approach to a tune that makes the album a heck of a lot of fun.

Medaphoar shortens his moniker to the less cumbersome Med for his full length debut Push Comes To Shove – a strong album that's more in tune with a tighter, straighter hip hop sensibility than many of the more tripped out efforts on Stones Throw! With smart, dexterous rhymes by Med, and production by Madlib (plus guest work by J Dilla, Oh No, and a very surprising appearance by Just Blaze), this record really has some s**t going for it! It's got the space funk, stutter-synth Madlib sound, but it's also one of the straighter Madlib productions – the kind that doesn't get as much press and attention as the freaky ones that appeal to college radio kids. There are also more rugged, grimy bits, like an eerie flute here, and some gutteral drum funk there. A pretty solid effort – one that, dare we say it – may age more gracefully than some of the trendier Stones Throw albums! MC and vocal guests include Diamond D, Dudley Perkins and Noelle of Rebirth! Tracks include "Serious" feat Oh No, "Pressure" feat Diamond & Poke, "Never Saw It Coming", "Can't Hold On", "So Real", "Never Give You Up", "Special" and "Nightlife" feat Noelle, "Get Back", "Now You Know" feat Dudley Perkins, "Yeah" and more!

An obscure late 50s set from the mighty Hank Mobley – and like all of the tenorist's sides for Blue Note, an essential gem that tops most work by the rest of his contemporaries! The setting here is a really warm and lyrical one – as Mobley's playing with Horace Silver on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, Art Blakey on drums, and the great Art Farmer on trumpet – making one of his rare (and appreciated!) Blue Note appearances on the set! The tracks have a good mixture of hardbop and more lyrical overtones – in a manner that's similar to Silver's work, but with a little more gutbucket soloing on tenor from Mobley. Titles include "Base On Balls", "Fin De L'Affaire", "Funk In Deep Freeze", and "Startin From Scratch". LP, Vinyl record album

The album's still somewhat inside, but the overall feel is much more spacious than before – a sound that has some nice open moments, and which shows Hank not content to simply blow tenor in a deep, gutbuckety mode – even though that was still pretty darn great! The lineup is a sextet – with Woody Shaw on trumpet, Eddie Diehl on guitar, Cedar Walton on piano, Mickey Bass on bass, and Leroy Williams on drums – a different-than-usual combo for Mobley, and one that furthers the unusual feel of the record. Side one features the extended "Suite" – proof that Mobley's writing had grown as much as labelmate Lee Morgan by the end of the 60s. Other tracks continue that fact – and include "Justine", "You Gotta Hit It", and "Talk About Getting It" – plus "Gayle's Groove", which was written by Bass.

The combo hail from Cinnicinnatti, and feature Curtis Peagler on tenor and alto sax – a player who'd become famous decades later under his own name, but who's already a hell of a sharp talent in this group.

Johnny Thunders, David Johansen and the boys reinvented the wheel with the of wildly hedonist glam skronk spun on this still incredible debut record. Both records they made for Mercury are incredible, but this is the bonafide masterpiece. It's a classic purely on a primal rock 'n' roll level, but it's also one of rock's greatest examples of style equaling substance! The Dolls brought glammer to the gutter and vice versa, and this is no doubt their greatest moment! Includes "Personality Crisis", "Looking For A Kiss", "Trash", "Frankenstein", "Pills", "Bad Girl", "Private World" and "Jet Boy".

New York DollsNew York Dolls (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Mercury/Culture Factory, 1973. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
"I need a fix – and a kiiiiiiiiiissssssss!" What can we say? Johnny Thunders, David Johansen and the boys reinvented the wheel with the of wildly hedonist glam skronk spun on this still incredible debut record. Both records they made for Mercury are incredible, but this is the bonafide masterpiece. It's a classic purely on a primal rock 'n' roll level, but it's also one of rock's greatest examples of style equaling substance! The Dolls brought glammer to the gutter and vice versa, and this is no doubt their greatest moment! Includes "Personality Crisis", "Looking For A Kiss", "Trash", "Frankenstein", "Pills", "Bad Girl", "Private World" and "Jet Boy".

Joe NewmanJoe Newman Quintet At Count Basie's (Trip pressing) ... LP
Mercury/Trip, 1961. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A nice little set by Joe – recorded live, and much more freewheeling than some of his other albums from the time! The set's unusual for Joe, in that it's got more of a down and dirty approach – not exactly soul jazz, but with a much more gutbuckety groove than we might have thought! Newman's playing here with a great group that includes sax work by Oliver Nelson – working on tenor, and always a treat in a set like this – plus piano by Lloyd Mayers, drums by Ed Shaughnessy, and bass by Art Davis. Includes the long original tune "Wednesday's Blues", plus "Caravan", "Love Is Here To Stay", "Someone To Love", and "The Midgets". LP, Vinyl record album

John PattonGot A Good Thing Goin' ... LP
Blue Note, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $119.99
A classic by Big John Patton! The master organ player is joined by Grant Green on guitar, and the much-overlooked drummer Hugh Walker – a fantastic player on the kit, little known, but who played with this incredible "skipping" groove – one that sounds that reminds us a lot of some of the work that Joe Dukes did with Jack McDuff in the 60s! There's no bass on the set at all – and Walker's drums combine with added conga from Richard Landrum – giving the songs an extra roll, and a modal approach that expands Patton's sound past his usual gutbuckety soul jazz! Includes loads of great tracks – especially the jazz dance classic "The Yodel", as well as on Sam Cooke's "The Shake", Duke Pearson's "Amanda", and the great "Soul Woman". LP, Vinyl record album

New John PattonThat Certain Feeling ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $19.99
A brilliantly bubbling session from Hammond genius John Patton – and a set that serves as a real link between the gutbucket soul of his early years, and some of the fresher phrasing he was beginning to explore at Blue Note! Patton's lines on the keys are a wonderful thing to behold (and behear!) – as they're both rhythmic, but extremely fluid and exploratory – more conceived around some of the new ideas on tenor at the time, and pushing forward roughly into the same territory as Larry Young – but with more of Patton's rootsy soul still intact. Junior Cook is in the group on most tracks on tenor – sounding quite fresh himself in this context as he leaps around with new energy – and the rest of the group features Jimmy Ponder on guitar and Clifford Jarvis on drums. The cuts are all originals, further proof of Patton's genius through his writing – and titles include "String Bean", "I Want To Go Home", "Dirty Fingers", and "Daddy James". CD

Noel PointerPhantazia/Hold On ... CD
Blue Note/BGO (UK), 1977/1978. New Copy 2 CDs ... $11.99
A pair of great pair of records from electric fusion violinist Noel Pointer – Phantazia from '77 and Hold On from '78 – in a 2CD set! Like others of the 70s generation, Pointer plays the violin in a way that's clearly heavily influenced by keyboards of the time – electric in amplification, and worked in a mode that uses the instrument to create waves of sound that flow out amongst the tighter fusion rhythms of the set. Dave Grusin arranged and produced the Phantazia set – in his best lean soulful mode of the time – and other players include Earl Klugh, Ralph MacDonald, Steve Gadd, and Grusin himself. Titles include "Mirabella", "Night Song", "Living For The City", "Phantazia", and "Wafaring Stranger". Hold On was recorded in a smooth, soulful mode – and once again has Pointer working with Grusin! Noel's sweet work on electric violin is set up nicely with keyboards from Dave, guitar from Eric Gale, drums from Steve Gadd, and percussion from Ralph MacDonald. Noel sings a bit on the set, but even better are the vocals from Patti Austin, Gwen Guthrie, Yolanda McCullough, and others – who flesh out the backgrounds on some tunes. Titles include "Staying With You", "Movin In", "Superwoman", "Stardust Lady", "Hold On", and the extended "Roots Suite", based on Quincy Jones music for the show! CD

Iggy PopIdiot (180 gram pressing) ... LP
RCA/4 Men With Beards, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 18.99
Iggy's second solo LP proper, and a strange morass of junkie desperation and gutteral white punk funk – a conscious decision to move away from the guitar roar of the Stooges era and closer to the sounds his longtime champion David Bowie was experimenting with at the time, with a little bit of Lou Reed for good measure – but make no mistakes, this is Iggy's show. It's as fascinating as it is impressive on a more visceral level, heavy bass rhythms and keys intergral to the sound, and weary latenight storytelling that trips you out on contact. All tunes co-written by Bowie, who would go on to make a lot of money off "China Girl" a few years into the 80s when the world was more ready for it, plus the classic "Nightclubbing", "Sister Midnight", "Baby", "Dum, Dum Boys", "Tiny Girls" and "Mass Production".

Popol VuhEinsjager & Siebenjager (180 gram pressing with bonus tracks) ... LP
Wah Wah (Spain), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
A leaner lineup of Popul Vuh – mostly guitar and piano or keyboard lines, mixed with percussion – but a record that also has some of the group's most tuneful moments of the early 70s – and a sound that really shows them moving forward with a new sort of energy! Most of the tracks are short, and never overindulgent – yet they also show a growing skill with guitar solos, which helps bring out a rockish quality the group never had this strongly before – even though most of the record has an instrumental approach. Djong Yun sings a bit on the set, often in a moody, lyric-less way – and tracks include the side-long title cut, plus "Kleiner Krieger", "Gutes Land", "Morgengruss", "King Minos", and "Wurfelspiel". Also features two bonus tracks – "King Minos II" and "Wo Bist Du". LP, Vinyl record album

Ike QuebecEasy Living (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1962/1987. New Copy ... $18.99
A killer set of work from this tremendous tenorist – rare sides, but titles that stand with his best classics from the time! Lost material that Ike Quebec recorded for Blue Note in the early 60s, but which wasn't issued until the 80s. A few of the tracks on the album were issued on the rare short-lived 1981 album Congo Lament, but this is the first time the tracks were brought together for the first time. Half of the material features a quartet with Quebec on tenor, Sonny Clark on piano, Milt Hinton on bass, and Art Blakey on drums – and the other half feature a larger group with Stanley Turrentine and Bennie Green added in. Overall, the larger group titles are a lot harder grooving than some of Quebec's other work – especially the titles "Congo Lament" and "Que's Pill". Other tracks have a nice mellow easy feel, with great gutsy tenor work from the master! Titles include "Easy Living", "Nancy", and "I've Got A Crush On You". Includes the bonus tracks "BG's Groove Two" & "IQ Shuffle". CD

Sonny RollinsWhat's New? ... LP
RCA, 1962. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A very unique album from Sonny Rollins – one that features him blowing tenor over some Latin-based rhythms that have a tight uptempo feel. The core group on the album features Jim Hall on guitar, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Ben Riley on drums – but they're augmented by larger arrangements that mix together bossa nova and calypso rhythms, which forge a surprisingly great background for Rollins' gutsy tenor. Although it's easy to dismiss the record as a throwaway cash-in affair on the Latin boom of the early 60s – Rollins actually handles himself wonderfully, and the longer-than-usual tracks on the album show a whole new side of his talents that were later reprised on Latin sessions during the 70s. Titles include "Bluesongo", "Jungoso", "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes", and "Brownskin Girl". LP, Vinyl record album

Clark TerryGlobetrotter ... LP
Vanguard, 1977. Near Mint- ... $4.99
The title's a right one, as Terry was one of the world's biggest-selling jazz acts at the time – playing a variety of settings during the 70s, and making a lot more penny than some of his contemporaries. Fortunately, that fame didn't mean that he sold out his talent – because he still sounds quite strong here, working with a group that includes Vic Sproles, Ronnie Mathews, and Ernie Wilkins – plus some guest work by Roland Prince and Walter Bishop Jr. Tracks are swinging and sometimes playful – with a lot more strident soul than you might expect, given the cover. Titles include "Zip Co-Ed", "Globetrotter", "Autumn Leaves", and a reprise of the old Dave Bailey-recorded tune "One Foot In The Gutter". LP, Vinyl record album

Stanley TurrentineJoyride ... LP
Blue Note, 1965. Very Good- ... $8.99
A very successful album for Blue Note – and one that took the searing tenor sax of Stanley Turrentine and backed it with some boldly soulful arrangements from Oliver Nelson! Nelson was perfect at this sort of session – able to provide full backings that infused the record with energy, yet never dominated the space of the soloist – and Turrentine really rises to the occasion here, and matches the quality heard in similar Nelson sessions with Jimmy Smith, Lou Donaldson, and Cannonball Adderley! Other players in the core group here include Kenny Burrell and Herbie Hancock – but Stan's the main star of the set with his gutsy tenor lines, all blown beautifully in a way that points towards his later experiments in this mode. Titles include "Bayou", "Mattie T", "Little Sheri", and "River's Invitation". LP, Vinyl record album

Kazuo YashiroLove Is Here To Stay (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Takt (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $24.99
A sweet set of piano work from the Japanese scene of the 60s – as tight and soulful as anything that was coming out of the US at the time, and with perhaps some of that extra spark you'd find on the best late 60s piano sessions on MPS! Kazuo Yashiro is a hell of a player – rock-solid in the rhythm department, but also able to hit a really open flow on the keys – one that's greatly encouraged here by excellent work from Masanaga Harada on bass and Jimmy Takeuchi on drums. The overall feel is similar to some of Les McCann's acoustic trio sides of the mid 60s – short and lively, with a bit of gutbucket in the playing, but also a nice light touch on the keys. Titles include "How Insensitive", "Day Tripper", "Sunny", "Summer Samba", "Being A Good Magician", and "Emily". CD also contains a bonus live track! CD

Classic club and soulful disco, all brought together in service of the lasting memory of Larry Levan – legendary DJ at the Paradise Garage, and a key force in shaping the sound of the dancefloor for years to come! The set features some material presented in special Larry Levan mixes, plus others pulled from rare 12" singles back in the day – and together the whole thing makes for a great collection of grooves from the left end of the spectrum – a great antidote to popular disco at the end of the 70s, and proof that the creative sound of the dancefloor was still burning strong! 2CD set features a total of 22 tracks – surprisingly well collected for anything with the Rhino name on it, and including "Love Has Come Around (12" version)" by Donald Byrd & 125th Street NYC, "Lover's Holiday (12" version)" by Change, "It Should Have Been You (12" voc)" by Gwen Guthrie, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough (garage version)" by Inner Life, "Why Leave Us Alone (12" long version)" by Five Special, "Lost In Music (1984 Niles Rodgers rmx)" by Sister Sledge, "Baby I'm Scared Of You" by Womack & Womack, "You Can't Hide" by David Joseph, "Bad For Me (12" long version)" by Dee Dee Bridgewater, "Smack Dab In The Middle" by Janice McClain, "We Got The Funk (12" US re-edit)" by Poisitive Force, "Haven't You Heard" by Patrice Rushen, "Weekend (12" extended)" by Phreek, "Clouds" by Chaka Khan, "Love Injection" by Trussel, "Can't Play Around (12" vocal)" by Lace, and "Heartbeat (club)" by Taana Gardner.

Masterpieces all the way through – especially if you dig club cuts and groovers from the early 80s! As with previous volumes of this series, this set is overflowing with rare gems from back in the day – cuts that show that there was still plenty of great music aimed at the dancefloors in the years after disco – and which often hit their groove in a completely different way! Much of the instrumentation here is electric – heavy on beats, basslines, and keyboards – but the sound is still plenty darn soulful, and the tunes themselves are filled with great hooks. Titles include "Slip N Slide" by Roy Ayers, "Freak In Me" by Dante, "Back At Ya" by Kerr, "Turn It Up" by Conway Brothers, "Love's Gonna Get You" by UK Players, "Closet Freak" by Videeo, "You Got Something Special" by Lemelle, "Who Needs A Love Like That" by Brenda Watts, "Outside In The Rain" by Gwen Guthrie, "Velocity" by Kopper, "Love Situation (Frankie Rodriguez' loved re-edit)" by Mark Fisher, and "Tonite's The Night" by Take Three.

Rough Guide, 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99 14.98
A wicked little set that really gets at the way that Latin record collecting has moved way past the usual sounds from New York, Puerto Rico, and Cuba – to embrace a whole host of styles from around the globe! In a world of collections that feature oft-reissued numbers from the Fania catalog, this set goes way further to dig up a whole host of gems from north and south of the border – and even a few from the other side of the Atlantic as well – mostly older numbers, but also including a few contemporary cuts that fit well alongside the vintage numbers. Pablo Yglesias handled the track selection, with the same quality he brings to other Latin projects too – and titles include "Bamba Cure" by Mario Allison, "No Pago Na" by Alfredo Gutierrez, "Esa Mujer" by Los Kenya, "Denisth" by Grupo 2000, "Funky Tumbao" by Setenta, "My Shingaling Boy" by Spanglish Fly, "Domingo Por La Manana" by Carlos Pickling, "Black Shadow" by Orchestra Dee Jay, "Pensamiento" by Piper Pimienta, "Do You Want To Be Free" by Gilberto Sextet, and "Chevere" by Joe Quijana.

Cannonball AdderleyCannonball Adderley Quintet In Chicago ... CD
EmArcy/Universal (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... Around October 8, 2014
A great session from 1959 – one that features John Coltrane playing with the Adderley group, recorded in Chicago when they were stopping through the city with Miles Davis' combo at the time! In fact, since the rhythm section includes Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb – and since Coltrane's sitting in with Cannon – the album's essentially a Kind Of Blue-era Miles album, recorded without Miles on trumpet, and grooving in a slightly more soul-based Adderley mode. Given the presence of Coltrane, there's a bit less of the gutbuckety soul jazz that Cannon was cutting in his own Quintet – but that's more than ok with us, as the Coltrane solos more than make up for that difference! The set's got 2 great originals by Coltrane – "The Sleeper" and "Grand Central" – plus the cuts "Wabash" and "Limehouse Blues". CD

You might need to be a Diddley diehard to know it, given the pretty hokey early 60s Beach Party cover photo – get past that and what you'll find is a rowdy, rumbling and completely incredible live album from Bo! It features material captured on a 2 night stand at The Beach Club in Myrtle Beach, SC in July of 1963 – raw and rambunctious, with the band pummeling fast and furious on some numbers and taking others into more of a gutbuckety bluesy vibe that's something else. Occasionally you can hear the screams of a clearly knocked out audience – boy, if we could find a wormhole to travel back in time and take this one in for ourselves. Includes "Memphis", "Gunslinger", "Hey Bo Diddley", "Old Smokey". "Bo Diddley's Dog", "I'm All Right", "Mr Custer", "Bo's Waltz", "What's Buggin' You (aka Crackin' Up)" and "Road Runner".
