New 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.

Lou RawlsBlack & Blue/Tobacco Road ... CD
Capitol, 1962/1963. Used ... $8.99
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

Lou RawlsLou Rawls Live! (Capitol) ... CD
Capitol, 1966. Used ... $7.99
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".

New Cannonball Adderley with Nancy Wilson & Lou RawlsIn Person ... LP
Capitol, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Almost everything soulful at Capitol Records in the mid 60s – packed together in one sweet little place! The set's a winner in a great line of Cannonball Adderley live dates from the time – produced by David Axelrod, and done with that great mix of angular, slightly electric groove the combo was virtually pioneering – thanks to help from Joe Zawinul on electric piano, and Nat Adderley on cornet! Cannon also plays some great soprano sax – an instrument that he was taking off beautifully with at the time – and sets fire to a few great tunes with the instrument. But as if that's not enough, Lou Rawls joins in on vocals on a few cuts, and Nancy Wilson comes in on a few more – and the album alternates singing with instrumentals in a really great way. Titles include two very nice extended tracks by Joe Zawinul – "Rumplestiltskin" and "The Scavenger", both of which are over 10 minutes long, and which have the group stretching out in a nice live vein – and other cuts include "The Scene", "Somewhere", "Sweet Emma", and "Zorba".

New Lou RawlsMan Of Value ... LP
MGM, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked 70s gem from Lou Rawls – and a record that provides a great bridge between the style of his 60s Capitol albums, and his more sophisticated work at Philly International! The mode here is full and rich – with arrangements by Reg Powell that mix Lou's soul leanings with some larger orchestrations – often in a mode that's still quite groovy, but which also helps add a bit of maturity to some of the themes of the tunes. There's still a bit of homespun influence in Lou's style here, but there's also a grander style too – one that seems a bit influenced by Grady Tate's work at Skye Records, but which is delivered here by Rawls with a bit more punch! Really great stuff – and one of Lou's most unified and focused albums. Titles include "Goodbye's A Long Long Time", "Song For You", "The Politician", "Where The Wind Blows Free", "Walk On In", "Learning Cup", "Too Much Living To Do", and "Evil". LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from Lou Rawls on Capitol – one of his fine fine albums produced by David Axelrod, with that snapping tight groove that works amazingly well with his vocals! The arrangements are super-tight – jazzy backings that have Lou shifting between that monologue style that he virtually patented at the time, and straighter swinging tunes that have a heck of a lot of soul. Titles include "Problems", "When Love Goes Wrong", "Ear Bender Monologue", "What Are You Doing About Today", "The Love That I Give",a nd "Hard To Get Thing Called Love". LP, Vinyl record album

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". CD features 3 bonus cuts – "A Little Les Of Lou's Blues", "Blues Is A Woman", and an alternate take of "Stormy Monday". CD

New Lou RawlsNow Is The Time/Close Company ... CD
Epic/Expansion (UK), 1982/1984. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of post Philly International gems from Lou Rawls on Epic – Now Is The Time from '82 and Close Company from '84 – in a single set! Now Is The Time is a solid soul effort from Lou, still working wonders here in the early 80s on a record that stands the test of time surprisingly well! The production doesn't overdo it with period production flourishes, with some sweeping arrangements on some numbers and more of an easygoing vibe on others. Titles include "Kiss Me One More Time", "Let Me Show You How", "Ain't That Love Baby", "This Love" and "Back To You". Close Company features a fair bit of production from Dexter Wansel, in a way that continues the groove from a few years before! The sound's got a smooth, sophisticated feel that works great with Lou's maturing vocals – and the overall feel is right up there with the best classy soul coming out on Epic at the time – work that's really stood the test of the time because it never gave in too much to commercial trends. Titles include "Close Company", "All Time Lover", "In The Middle Of The Night", "Pretty Eyes", "Forever I Do", "Ready Or Not", and "Say It Again". 17 tracks in all on the CD. 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".

Expansion (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $11.99
Smooth and jazzy soul from the team of James Mtume and Reggie Lucas – two of the finest producers and arrangers in their field! The set brings together tracks recorded by the pair with a host of different artists across a host of different labels – offering for the first time a true picture of the genius of Mtume, and featuring a load of excellent cuts that are appearing on CD for the first time ever! Mtume himself cut a few famous albums on Columbia, some with Lucas, and together the pair worked across a variety of labels in the late 70s and early 80s – taking modern soul to the next level with a really top-shelf sound! The package is a 15-track monster, filled with loads of great tracks we're happy to have together – and titles include "Love Lock", "Closer I Get To You", and "Juicy Fruit" by Mtume; "Under Your Spell" and "You Know How To Love Me" by Phyllis Hyman, "Never Too Late For Your Lovin" and "Step In The Light" by Sunfire, "What Cha Gonna Do With My Lovin" by Stephanie Mills, "Got To Be Love" by The Spinners, "If I Had A Chance" by Rena Scott, "Back To You" and "Now Is The Time For Love" by Lou Rawls, "Keep Going On" by Gary Bartz, and "Two Hearts" by Stephanie Mills & Teddy Pendergrass.

Teddy PendergrassLive Coast To Coast ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1979. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
Teddy Pendergrass follows up the style of Lou Rawls' double live album for Philly International – and goes for a very similar mix of modes that showcases all his charm and soulful spirit! The 2LP set features material recorded in both Philly and LA – with a fair bit of Teddy's working the audience along with the tunes. And as an added bonus, side 4 of the album also features radio interview material with Teddy, plus a few new studio tracks for the set – a nice addition, but one that also makes us wonder why, after 2 locations of live recording, they couldn't get together enough concert material for the record! Titles include "Life Is A Song Worth Singing", "Only You", "Turn Off The Lights", "Do Me", "Close The Door", "Come Go With Me", "Where Did All The Lovin Go", "Get UP Get Down Get Funky Get Loose", "When Somebody Loves You Back", "Shout & Scream", "It's You I Love", and "LA Rap".

New Arthur PrysockAll My Life (with bonus track) ... CD
Old Town/Big Break (UK), 1976. Used ... $8.99
A great 70s move for Arthur Prysock – and an overlooked disco treasure that sits somewhere between the work of Barry White with Love Unlimited Orchestra, and the best Lou Rawls grooves for Philly International! Prysock's voice has lost none of its depth over the years – and here, instead of jazzy ballads, Arthur's working with some great midtempo grooves put together by John Davis – who produced and arranged, and gives the album all the full clubby depth of his own records with the Monster Orchestra! The mix of groove and grace, baritone and bump, soul and sophistication is all mighty great territory for Prysock – and titles include "When Love Is New", "One Broken Heart", "All My Life", "Love Makin Love To You", "I Wantcha Baby", and "All I Need Is You Tonight". Features a bonus single mix of "When Love Is New". CD

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.

VariousSound Of Philadelphia – Gamble & Huff's Greatest Hits ... CD
Philadelphia International, 1970s. Used ... $5.99
A sweet little set of classic 70s Philly – one of the best collections of work by the team of Gamble & Huff we've ever seen! There's nothing too obscure or offbeat here – and instead, the collection focuses mostly on the massive crossover tracks produced by the pair back in the day – the landmark soul that not only redefined the sound of Philly, but also the 70s as well! And while most of this material has been on the market often over the years, it's still pretty darn nice to see it all clustered together in one place. Most titles are the full-length album versions – and the CD features 14 tracks that include "Me & Mrs Jones" by Billy Paul, "When Will I See You Again" by Three Degrees, "TSOP" by MFSB, "Do It Any Way You Wanna" by People's Choice, "I'll Always Love My Mama" by The Intruders, "Use Ta Be My Girl" by The O'Jays, "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine" by Lou Rawls, "The Love I Lost" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Back Stabbers" by The O'Jays, "Love Train" by The O'Jays, "Ain't No Stoppin Us Now" by McFadden & Whitehead, "Close The Door" by Teddy Pendergrass, and "If You Only Knew" by Patti LaBelle.

New David AxelrodSongs Of Experience ... LP
Capitol, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums ever by studio genius David Axelrod! The album's one of Axelrod's first on his own – cut for Capitol Records at a time when he was working with some of the label's biggest selling soul acts – like Cannonball Adderley and Lou Rawls – turning their already-successful sounds into super-hit material by adding some nice funky touches, and excellent baroque production. This album lets Axelrod fully explore his talents for larger studio arrangements and complex yet soulful instrumentation. The record is subtitled "an anthology of awareness after birth, based on the 18th century poems of William Blake" – and it features incredible arrangements conducted by Don Randi, played by a host of excellent LA jazz and studio players. The overall sound is spacey and dark, with nice touches of funk, and plenty of cool instrumental passages that have been sampled over the years by hip hoppers and other producers. Titles include "London", "The Fly", "The Human Abstract", "A Divine Image", and "The Sick Rose". Reissued with the original gatefold cover and everything! LP, Vinyl record album

We've been fans of El Da Sensai from the Artifacts days, and he doesn't disappoint with his latest effort, where he reminisces about the glory days of the early 90s, which we definitely agree was in many ways a golden age of hip hop. He recaptures that vibe here with beats by J Rawls, P Original, Koolade and Kan Kick and avoids falling into the trap of too many skits and guest spots, though there are nice appearances by Sadat X, J Live and Asheru. 14 tracks, plus intro and outro and 2 interludes, including "Relax", "Speakin", "So Easily", "On & On", "Focus", "In The Lab" and "What You Wanna Do?".

New Dakota Staton with Manny AlbamCongratulations To Someone ... CD
Groove Merchant/LRC, 1973/1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very hip work from Dakota Staton – a collection of her work for the Groove Merchant label from the early 70s, most of which appeared on the albums Country Man and Madame Foo Foo! Backings here are by the band of Manny Albam – in a mode that's jazzy, but inflected with plenty of soul – and which has the same sort of rhythmic pulse that you'd find in Lou Rawls' best later work for Capitol. The style's a great one for Dakota – one that brings a bit more focus and energy to her music, and which almost sets her up more as a soul singer than a jazz one. Titles include "Girl Talk", "Cry Me A River", "Country Man", "Make It Easy On Yourself", "How Did He Look", "Blues For Tasty", and "A Losing Battle". CD

New David Axelrod & OthersEdge – David Axelrod At Capitol Records 1966 to 1970 ... CD
Capitol, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
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.

New Philadelphia International All-StarsLet's Clean Up The Ghetto ... LP
Philadelphia International, Late 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
An amazing little record that's easily one of the most righteous albums ever from Philadelphia International – a set designed to "give back" to the communities who supported the label strongly in the 70s, as a unique fund-raising effort, done before such records were commonplace! The Philly International roster of stars teamed up to put out this stunning set of tracks aimed at cleaning up the "ghettoes", both physical and mental, that continue to haunt the African-American communities in the US – and the set features key new numbers, plus a few more older tracks pulled from other Philly records that really work well to support the righteous message of the set. The centerpiece is the long title cut – "Let's Clean Up The Ghetto" – which has Lou Rawls doing a monologue about the garbage strike in New York, then launches into performances by Teddy Pendergrass, The O'Jays, Billy Paul, and Archie Bell. Other highlights include "The Big Gangster" by The O'Jays, "Old People" by Archie Bell, "Everybody's Talkin" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, and "Now Is The Time To Do It" by Teddy Pendergrass.

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.

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".

New VariousPhiladelphia International Classics – The Tom Moulton Remixes (8 x 12" set) ... LP
Philadelphia International/Harmless (UK), 1970s. New Copy 8LP ... Out Of Stock
Massive mixes from the mighty Tom Moulton – a huge package that not only includes some classic lost and rare mixes from the 70s, but also 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! This totally cool package features 31 mixes in all – pressed up as eight 12" EPs – most with four tracks each, leaving plenty of room for very long mixes! Titles include Moulton mixes of "Jam Jam Jam" by People's Choice, "I Don't Love You Anymore" by Teddy Pendergrass, "Party Time Man" by The Futures, "Intro/My Love Don't Come Easy" by Jean Carn, "Trusting Heart" by The Trammps, "Don't Leave Me This Way" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Let's Groove" by Archie Bell & The Drells, "Dirty Ol Man" by Three Degrees, "Slow Motion" by Johnny Williams, "I'll Always Love My Mama" by The Intruders, "The Devil Made Me Do It" by Robert Upchurch, "Back Stabbers" by The O'Jays, "See You When I Get There" by Lou Rawls, and "Love Epidemic" by The Trammps.

New Will PowersAdventures In Success (main, dub) ... 12-inch
Island, 1983. Used (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An 80s classic from Will Powers – a number that snaps along with a slightly stark little groove – almost post-punk electric in approach, but a bit more in a clubby style. The vocals are spoken – as if in an instruction record – and the track crawls along in a slow but catchy groove! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Cover has a tear on the spine.)
