New Joe CainLatin Explosion (aka Latin Au Go Go) ... LP
Time, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the few albums ever issued as a leader by the great Joe Cain – a wonderful Latin arranger with a really mad ear for a groove! Cain's approach is often quite choppy in the rhythms – short, hard, and very very sharp – then topped with sweeter, jazzier lines – played on this set by Clark Terry on trumpet, Jerome Richardson on tenor and flute, and Frank Anderson on piano and some especially nice organ lines! Percussion is super-heavy throughout – played by Jose Mangual, Chocolate, and Marcelino Valdes with a vibe that's just right for the rhythms – and additional support is from Cachao on bass and Herbie Lovelle on drums. The grooves are incredible – quite different than anything else on Mainstream Records at the time, and even different than most of the New York scene – and titles include the amazing "It's A Mad Mad Mad Mambo (parts 1 & 2) (also known elsewhere as "Mambo Au Go Go") – a cut that sounds like some sort of crazy avant garde percussion banging, all made to keep in time to a mambo beat, with jazzy organ solos over the top. Other titles include "Mongo Mongo Baby", "Papa Bajo", "Que Paso", "Tanga Pa Katanga", and "Chunga A Go Go". LP, Vinyl record album

CandidoThousand Finger Man ... LP
Solid State, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $44.99
Stone lost Latin funk! This one's Candido's rarest – and it's a killer batch of conga-heavy grooves, recorded in the late 60s for Solid State, and featuring a very groovy set of mod Latin arrangements by Joe Cain. The band features organ, guitar, bass, horns, and some upfront conga solos from Candido. Tracks are longer than usual for this sort of album – and there's a lot of strange elements floating through the tracks, in a very nice way! Titles include "Thousand Finger Man", which has some especially firey conga breakdowns, plus "Jump Back", "Soul Limbo", "Tony's Theme (from Lady In Cement)", and "Come On Choo Choo Train". LP, Vinyl record album

Mauricio SmithBitter Acid ... LP
Mainstream, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99
A killer album of hard instrumental Latin soul tracks – one of the few albums ever done by funky reed player Mauricio Smith! On the set, Smith plays flute, alto, and soprano sax – and the record's filled with short little groovers that have a nice choppy sound, and lots of heavy conga work by Marcelino Valdes and Victor Pantoja! Other instrumentation includes organ, trumpet, and guitar – blasting out with some really mad rhythms, and very much in keeping with the crazy 60s work of Joe Cain, who arranged the whole thing. The album's got a sound that's very much in keeping with it's funky ghetto cover – and titles include "Hot Peppers", "Viva Guajira", "More Bread", "Mambo For Mauricio", "Puttin You Down", and "El Green Hornet". Excellent! LP, Vinyl record album

La LupeEs La Reina (The Queen) ... CD
Tico/Fania, Late 60s. New Copy ... Around August 1, 2014 (delayed)
La Lupe was certainly the queen of Latin music at the time of this set – and she works here in a mix of emotive ballads and more lively groovers that show the full range of her talents! Joe Cain handled arrangements on all of side one – and he casts Lupe in a string-heavy mode that really brings a dark undercurrent to the ballads and sadder songs used on the set. Hector Rivera takes over on side two, and puts Lupe in a more percussive setting that bubbles with life and joy – sometimes hinting at Latin Soul modes of the time, but mostly sticking into a rootsier, more traditional mode. Titles include "Puro Teatro", "Sueno", "Ultimo Adios", "A La Orilla Del Mar", "El Dia Que Yo Naci", "La Reina", "Me Siento Guajira", "Cafe Con Leche", "That's The Way It's Gonna Be", and "Guaguanco Bembe".

New Clark TerryMumbles ... LP
Mainstream, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly great little record from Clark Terry – filled with warmth, humor, and some really great grooves! The core of the album is the track "Mumbles", one that's based around Terry kind of slurring a scat vocal to a jazzy 60s groove. The track was a minor hit at the time, and Mainstream recorded a whole album around it – using the arranging talents of Joe Cain, who runs through a lot of elements that really make the set cook – from Latin percussion, to Hammond organ grooving, electric guitar, and an overall sound that's got a hip Verve Records feel. Players include Vinnie Bell, Willie Bobo, Grady Tate, and Jerome Richardson – and Cain really makes the record groove in ways that we've never heard on another Terry session. Titles include "Mumbles", "Rum & Mumbles", "Big Spender", "The Mumbler Strikes Again", "El Blues Latino", and "The Cat From Cadiz". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousR&B Singles Collection Vol 3 – Outta Sight Red Hot Rhythm & Blues ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
Smoking work from the early years of soul music – that time when the style was just coming into its own, through equal parts jazz, R&B, blues, and gospel! The cuts here are those which might be called R&B in another setting, but definitely work together to inform the roots of soul – all in the style that's carried on by the later 60s reissues on the Outta Sight label. Lots of the cuts have the feel of some of the best Jazzman/Jukebox Jam reissues in recent years – a very different take on R&B than previous generations of collectors have explored. Titles include "I Get The Feeling" by Eli Lee, "Let's Start A Romance" by Little Joe Hinton, "Hard Times" by Jacki Ross, "Cherringale" by Ed Townsend, "Twist 62" by Jerry McCain, "My Book" by Bruce Cloud, "The Girl That Radiates The Charm" by June Alexander, and "Dynamite" by Big Jay Bush & The Houserockers.

New VariousSoul In Germany – When Ein Man Liebt Ein Woman ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1960s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Soul in Germany – an unusual sort of concept, but one that comes off surprisingly well – as you'll hear on the tunes in this set! The package features mostly German language soul tunes from the 60s – tracks that are mostly covers of American soul hits – sung either by Americans adapting to the language for the German audience, or by European singers who do a fairly good job of capturing the spirit of the originals – if not the language! Some of the cuts here are somewhat pop-oriented, but still come off well – and others are genuine soul tunes that are hard to distinguish from the American version, save for the language. The package features a whopping 40 page booklet – with notes in German, plus a wealth of cool photos and record images! 28 tracks in all – including "Du Bist Da" by Gilla, "Baby Ich Such Nach Dir" by Michael Holm, "Es Liegt Nur An Dir" by Buddy Caine, "Mein Girl" by The Temptations, "Geh Vorbei" by Dionne Warwick, "Ich Ich Habe Niemand" by Renate Pichler, "Aus" by Peggy Peters, "Komm Zu Mir" by Ronny Twen, "Was Hab Ich Dir Getan" by Jacob Sisters, "Kein Weg Ist Zu Weit" by Cornflakes, "Johnny & Joe" by Supremes, "Niemand Ist Ein Engel" by Toni Cavana, "Zweisamkeit" by Joy & The Hitkids, "Wie Schon Das Ist" and "Sympatica" by Marvin Gaye, and "Man Nennt Mich Mr Pitiful" by Micha & Peter.
