J RawlsLegacy ... LP
Polar, 2014. New Copy ... $19.99 21.98
Jazzy hip hop producer/rhymer and longtime under-appreciated uber-talent J Rawls delivers what's billed as his final album as a solo emcee – and to underline the point, it's called The Legacy – focusing squarely on rhymes and lyrics and letting top notch producers handle the beats! It's a testament the J Rawls skills that a record with a different producer for each track can hold together so strongly. They include Rashad, Bombeado, Kev Brown, Rob Riley, Lakim and more. Mic guests include Masta Ace, John Robinson, Illa J, Wordsworth and more. Titles include "Alpha" with Barb Fant, "My People". "Bilss" feat Masta Ace, "Non-Stop", "Southside" feat Ms Sarad, ""The Rest Of My Life" feat Illa J, "Omega" feat JG The Juggernaut, "One Time" feat Wordsworth, "The Legacy" feat John Robinson, Ceezar & Lea Anderson and more – plus the bonus "Best Producer On The Mic II" feat Oddissee, Nottz, Raw & Blueprint.

Capitol, Late 60s. Good+ ... $2.99
One of the great ones – produced by David Axelrod, with HB Barnum arrangements, and sublime vocals by Lou, who's really at his best in this sort of setting! The album features 2 hip monologues – "Righteous Woman" and "Dead End Street" – plus the famous sung version of the latter, and the tracks "You're Takin My Bag", "I'll Take Time", "Why", and "Yes, It Hurts (Doesn't It?)".

Lou RawlsYou've Made Me So Very Happy ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
All the best elements for Lou's Capitol work are in place – arrangements by HB Barnum, production by David Axelrod, and a hip batch of pop tracks that really push Lou into a whole new dimension! Axelrod really knows how to bring up the bass in the arrangements, and create just the right amount of space for Lou to open up his fantastic voice on cuts like the amazing title track, "Let's Burn Down The Cornfield", "Hurtin", "Will Someone Carry The Ball", "Yesterday's Dreams", "When Someone Comes Along", and "How Can That Be".

Another one of the really good Lou Rawls albums from the late 60's. David Axelrod produced, and the drums are nice and hard, especially on "I Can't Make It Alone", which he arranged. Other tracks include "Give Me Your Love" (not the Curtis Mayfield song), "When She Speaks", and "Your Good Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

Lou Rawls with Les McCann LtdStormy Monday ... LP
Capitol, 1962. Very Good+ ... $3.99
One of Lou's most jazz-oriented albums – featuring backing by Les McCann's famous trio with Leroy Vinnegar and Ron Jefferson, perfectly suited to Lou's soulful renditions of the tunes on the album. Most of the numbers are bluesy ones, but as usual, Lou manages to give them his own hip twist – always a pleasure for us! Titles include "In The Evening", "Sweet Lover", "Willow Weep For Me", "Stormy Monday", and "'Tain't Nobody's Biz-ness If I Do". LP, Vinyl record album

New Lou Rawls/Don CostaSoul Of N*gger Charley ... LP
MGM, 1973. Sealed ... $39.99
A great little soundtrack – even if it looks a bit snoozy from the outside! Don Costa's usually not our favorite arranger, but he does a great job with this one – laying out some hard blacksploitation grooves that have funky keyboards, sweet sitar, and lots of nice cop show grooves to them. The bulk of the record is instrumental – with some great funky cuts like "Main Title – Charley", "Main Theme to Water Tower", "Can You Dig It?", and "Train's Comin" – plus a few more "with chorus" tracks that are a bit more mellow. Lou Rawls sings on two cuts – the groovy "Sometime Day", which has a very strong "soundtrack theme" feel, and the mellower "Morning Comes Around", which ends the record with a nice soulful tone.

One of the nice moments from the days when David Axelrod was producing Lou Rawls! The record's a great mix of soul and tight LA production, and features the breakbeat cut "Fa Fa Fa Fa Fa (Sad Song)".

New Lou RawlsBlack & Blue/Tobacco Road ... CD
Capitol, 1962/1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
2 early Capitol classics by Lou Rawls – back to back on one CD, and perfectly paired throughout! Black and Blues is quite possibly the first truly great Lou Rawls album for Capitol – an all-out swinging jazz session done with arrangements by Onzy Matthews, in a mode that firmly helped put the Lou Rawls sound on the map! The tracks are mostly older numbers from a long lineage of blues and R&B – but with hipper 60s touches by Matthews in the backings, Lou really swings the work into a whole new territory – moving older, clunky compositions into more adult, more mature modes that aren't nearly as sad or downtrodden as their roots! Titles include "I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water", "Roll Em Pete", "Kansas City", "World Of Trouble", "Trouble In Mind", "Strange Fruit", and "Six Cold Feet Of Ground". Tobacco Road was a real breakthrough for Lou – a set that again paired him with arranger Onzy Matthews, and which even more deeply explored the unique space between jazz, soul, and the blues that became Rawls' prime territory back in the 60s! Matthews' backings are hip and jazzy throughout – filled with bold horn touches from players that include Lou Blackburn, Curtis Amy, Sonny Criss, and even Horace Tapscott – who's playing trombone here instead of his more familiar piano. Ray Crawford's guitar underscores a good number of the tracks here with that clean, lean, single-note style of his – but Lou is the clear star throughout with his deeply-voiced lyrics of older familiar tunes. Titles include his landmark reworking of "Tobacco Road", plus "Summertime", "Stormy Weather", "Rocking Chair", "Ol Man River", "St Louis Blues", and "Sentimental Journey". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "When It's Sleepy Time Down South" and the previously unissued "Gloomy Sunday". CD

New Lou RawlsLou Rawls Live! (Capitol) ... LP
Capitol, 1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums to ever sum up the genius of Lou Rawls in the 60s – a brilliant live set put together with the talents of David Axelrod! The record perfectly captures the easy-going soul of Rawls in the early years – a natural approach to his music that made him one of the best singers of his genre at the time, and which comes out especially strong in the album's upbeat monologues, which are often delivered by Lou with musical accompaniment, then leap strongly into the lyrics of a tune. Backing is by a small jazzy combo that includes Herb Ellis on guitar and the great rhythm team of Jimmy Bond on bass and Earl Palmer on drums – both of whom bring a nice little groove to most of the album's numbers. Titles include "Street Corner Hustler's Blues/World Of Trouble", "Southside Blues/Tobacco Road", "The Shadow of Your Smile", "In The Evening When The Sun Goes Down", "I Got It Bad And That Ain't Good", and "The Girl From Ipanema". LP, Vinyl record album

New Willie HutchSoul Portrait/Season For Love (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Expansion (UK), 1969/1970. New Copy ... $16.99
A pair of overlooked albums from the great Willie Hutch – back to back on a single CD! First up is Soul Portrait – pre-Motown work from Willie Hutch – but a great little record that really points the way towards Willie's famous sides to come in the 70s! Hutch here already sounds pretty darn great – singing with a raspy tone that reminds us a bit of Curtis Mayfield – especially given that Willie uses the same sort of righteous undercurrent as Curtis – not yet as over the top political, but brewing under nicely with a really marked sense of power! The backings are great too – all arranged by Hutch himself, and already showing some of the hipper styles that he'd bring into play in his later blacksploitation work. One of the deepest soul albums on RCA at the time – with a righteous vibe that's totally great – and filled with wonderful original tunes that include "Lucky To Be Loved By You", "Ain't Gonna Stop", "You Gotta Try", "Let Me Give You The Love You Need", "Do What You Wanna Do", and "Good To The Last Drop". Season For Love is early work from the great Willie Hutch – a set that's different than his more famous Motown music of the 70s, but which already shows a nicely ambitious approach! Willie's a warmer, sweeter-voiced singer here – working through some great original tunes of his own, plus a few well-chosen classics – all in a mix of soul and strings that definitely grooves, but which could also have gotten Hutch some bigger exposure in the larger music world as well. A few numbers are almost more in a jazz vocal territory – or at least in territory of artists like Lou Rawls or Arthur Prysock – while others have the righteous energy of Willie's later sound too. The arrangements are by Rene Hall and Perry Botkin Jr – and titles include "Season for Love", "The Shortest Distance", and "Trying To Understand A Woman", plus covers like "Hurt So Bad" and "Twelfth of Never". CD also features a bonus track – "When A Boy Falls In Love (parts 1 & 2) (45 version)". CD

Donna LorenThese Are The Good Times – The Complete Capitol Recordings (Beach Blanket Bingo/singles) ... CD
Capitol/Now Sounds (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
A huge amount of material from the lovely Donna Loren – star of both the big and the small screen in the 60s – and a surprisingly great singer, too! The package features singles, unreleased tracks, and Loren's classic Capitol album Beach Blanket Bingo – which has great work from the team of HB Barnum and David Axelrod! The Barnum/Axlerod combo is perhaps a bit more pop-oriented here than on some of the pair's other Capitol work from the 60s – such as their work with Lou Rawls – but there's often a nice sense of space, groove, and timing to these tracks – a mode that mixes the sweeter pop of Donna's voice with a bit more bounce on the bottom – all in a jaunty groove that's pretty great! Titles include "Cycle Set", "Fly Boy", "I Am My Ideal", "New Love", "It Only Hurts When I Cry", "I Think You Think", and "Beach Blanket Bingo". But in addition to the 10 tracks on the album, this collection adds in 19 more bonus cuts – including "Drop The Drip", "Ninety Day Guarantee", "Woman In Love", "Just A Little Girl", "So Do The Zonk", "Call Me", "My Way", "Hold Your Head High", "Good Things", "Smokey Joe's", and "Leave Him To Me".

Tina MasonTina Mason Is Something Wonderful! ... LP
Capitol, 1967. Very Good+ ... $24.99
An overlooked gem from the David Axelrod years at Capitol Records – a set that also features some nicely snapping arrangements from HB Barnum! Given that the Axelrod/Barnum team was the force behind Lou Rawls best work of the time, the sound here is pretty darn similar – simple pop, but with a great sense of space, and a nice little bounce at the bottom – a gently jaunty groove that would be great on its own, even if we didn't like Tina Mason's vocals! Fortunately, though, Tina also sounds pretty darn great – almost a bit like some of the Brit female singers of the time, even though she's an American – sweet, but never too sweet, and with a strong sense of rhythm that really works well with the backings. Speaking of backings, instrumentation includes guitar from Howard Roberts and organ from Gerald Wiggins – on titles that include "Life & Soul Of The Party", "Are You There", "A Good Kind Of Hurtin", "The Way Of Love", "You Can Have Him", and "What".

Gene McDanielsHit After Hit ... LP
Liberty, 1962. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A well-titled album, as it features some of Gene's big early hits, mixed along with lesser-known gems – all done in that proud, loud style he used before becoming the Headless Hero! Snuff Garrett produced most of the work, and the tunes have a bold approach that certainly draws from the Liberty pop sound of the time – but which also has the same righteous soul touches that you might find in Lou Rawls work of the time, and which makes Gene a key link between Lou and earlier singers like Roy Hamilton or Tommy Edwards. Titles include "A Hundred Pounds Of Clay", "Chip Chip", "I Don't Want To Cry", "Tower Of Strength", "A Tear", "Send For Me", and "Point Of No Return". LP, Vinyl record album

Arthur PrysockToo Late Baby – The Old Town Singles 1958 to 1966 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
A great run of music from the mighty Arthur Prysock – an incredibly soulful singer who was at the top of the heap in the early 60s, but who's largely forgotten all these many years later! Prysock had a really unique approach – and one that really paved the way for some of the bigger male ballad soul singers in the late 60s and 70s – a bit of jazz, with a definite influence from Billy Eckstine – mixed with a deep range that's a lot bluesier than his classy look might make you think – often set to backings that open up a new sort of sophisticated territory. Without Prysock, it's hard to imagine Walter Jackson, Lou Rawls, Jerry Butler, and many others – and this sweet batch of singles really sums up the power of the man at his height. The CD features 24 tracks in all – many on CD for the first time – and titles include "Come & See This Old Fool", "Worry Bout You", "Again", "House By The Side Of The Road", "It's Too Late Baby Too Late", "Our Love Will Last", "One More Time", "If Ever I Should Fall In Love", and "Keep A Light In The Window For Me".

One of Della's grooviest records, and a great little live set – recorded at the Playboy Club in Hollywood, with backing by the soulful Bobby Bryant Quintet. The group features some nice tenor work by a young Hadley Caliman, and groovy organ by Henry Caine – all of which sets Della's vocals in a much nicer groove than on some of her other albums from the 60s. Tracks include "So Nice", "Good Times", "Big City", and "Don't You Know" – and many tracks are preceded by a hip monologue, in a manner that's similar to that used on some of the best Lou Rawls albums for Capitol.

VariousPhiladelphia International Classics – The Tom Moulton Remixes (4CD set) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Harmless (UK), 1970s. New Copy 4CD ... $28.99
Massive mixes from the mighty Tom Moulton – a huge 4CD package that not only includes some classic lost and rare mixes from the 70s, but also a whopping 17 previously unreleased Moulton mixes, appearing here for the first time ever! If there's anyone who's ever been well-suited to reworking a Philly groove, it's Tom – given his long standing association with the soul scene in the City Of Brotherly Love – and his crucial role in pushing soul tracks into the clubs during the 70s. As with most of Tom's best work, the mixes here are richly faithful to the originals – and never try to overstate themselves at all, just focus on the best elements, and bring them to the forefront of the groove! 4CDs, 31 tracks, and Moulton remixes of "Back Stabbers" by The O'Jays, "Dirty Ol Man" by Three Degrees, "Trusting Heart" by The Trammps, "Do It Any Way You Wanna" by People's Choice, "Nights Over Egypt" by The Jones Girls, "I Don't Love You Anymore" by Teddy Pendergrass, "Year Of Decision" by Three Degrees, "Slow Motion" by Johnny Williams, "The Love I Lost" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "She's A Winner" by The Intruders, "Trammps Disco Theme/Zing Went The Strings" by The Trammps, "Let's Groove" by Archie Bell & The Drells, "The Devil Made Me Do It" by Robert Upchurch, "Love Is The Message" by MFSB, "Party Time Man" by The Futures, and "See You When I Get There" by Lou Rawls.

New David Axelrod & OthersEdge – David Axelrod At Capitol Records 1966 to 1970 ... CD
Capitol, Late 60s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A great look at the genius of David Axelrod – the groundbreaking producer who recorded some incredibly hip albums at Captiol during the late 60s, but who's now only finally getting his due! Axelrod brought a whole new sensibility to the studio in his day – an approach that really stripped down the overly-cluttered modes of the era of Phil Spector and Brian Wilson, and which went instead for a spacious approach to the music that seemed to use silence as heavily as it did sound! Axelrod's genius was heard most famously on key 60s recordings by Cannonball Adderley and Lou Rawls for Capitol, but while at the label, he also got the chance to cut some incredibly mind-blowing albums on his own – and to work with some other artists who really benefited from his amazing touch in the studio. This set's a masterpiece – and it features 17 Axelrod numbers from the Capitol years – all hand-picked by Egon of Stones Throw (himself an Axelrod expert), and supported by comments from David himself! Titles include "House Of Mirrors" and "The Edge" by David McCallum, "Theme From The Fox" by Don Randi, "Tensity" by Cannonball Adderley, "Pula Yetla" by Letta Mbulu, "Lifetime Monologue" and "You've Made Me So Very Happy" by Lou Rawls, and "The Signs (part 1)", "Warning Talk (parts 1 & 3)", "The Smile", "The Mental Traveller", "The Fly", and "London" by David Axelrod himself.

OC SmithFor Once In My Life ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Pretty darn great work from OC Smith – on of his biggest albums for Columbia! OC's working in a country soul mode that draws on a tradition shared by Solomon Burke, Joe Tex, Ray Charles, and others – turning the genre towards a more pop-driven version of country, the kind that was creeping into the crossover charts at the end of the 60s. The style's one that might have you suspicious, but it comes off surprisingly well – thanks to arrangements by the always-great HB Barnum, the man who brought a syncopated groove to some of Lou Rawls' best work in the late 60s – his Capitol sides with David Axelrod! The feel here is a bit rootsier, but still has that nice Barnum bounce underneath – and titles include "Wichita Lineman", "I Ain't The Worryin' Kind", "The Best Man", "Stormy", "Cycles", "Keep On Keepin On", "Isn't It Lonely Together", and "Promises".

One of the hippest Halloween collections you could ever hope to buy – an amazing follow up to Ace Records' legendary These Ghoulish Things – and like that one, a treasure trove of oddball novelty numbers with a sweet October spirit! The work here goes way past familiar "Monster Mash" modes – and instead, really trawls the depths of late 50s and early 60s rock and roll – in search of weird tunes that make great use of odd production techniques, offbeat instrumentation, sound effects, and lots of horror film-inspired styles – a perfect blend of music for the Halloween holiday, and for all year long! The notes are as great as the music – and the set features 25 titles that include "Terrible Ivan" by Art Roberts, "The Cave" by Chuck Holden, "Dracula's Theme" by The Ghouls, "Do The Zombie" by The Symbols, "The Mad Scientist" by The Zanies, "They're Here" by Boots Walker, "The Goo Goo Muck" by Ronnie Cook & The Gaylads, "Spooky Movies" by Roy Clark, and "Sleepy Hollow" by The Last Word.
