Steven Hufsteter & OthersKiss Of The Damned (with download) ... LP
Soraya, 1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy ... $24.99
The soundtrack to Kiss Of The Damned – kind of a modern take on the style of sultry European vampire films of the 70s – nicely done by composer Steven Hufsteter and featuring some cool stand-alone songs, too! If you dig seedy 70s cinema and soundtracks as much as we do, you'll recognize from the cover art that the film is an homage to the style of filmmakers Jess Franco, Jean Rollin others – which has gotten some love in recent years, especially for the evocative soundtracks. The film is directed by Xan Cassavetes (daughter of film maverick John Cassavetes) and composer Hufsteter does a terrific job here putting a modern spin on the sexy sounds of 70s – some that would sound right at home on a vintage soundtrack resurrected by Finders Keepers, but others are more clearly contemporary. Also includes cool period songs AND contemporary tunes by the legendary Brigitte Fontaine, Jane Weaver, Acanthus and more! Includes "KOTD Love Theme", "Vapeur", "Bath Of Tears", "Threshold", "Backstage Jazz", "Adieu Vampiers" and more by composer Steven Hufsteter, "Parade Of Blood Red Sorrows" by Jane Weaver, "Le Ciel Est Doux" by Brigitte Fontaine, "Sleeping Beauty (Angiosse Temporelle)" by Acanthus, ""Hexen Leben Langer" by Der Fluch and more.

J Frank Wilson & The CavaliersLast Kiss ... CD
Josie/Warner (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
A classic album from J Frank Wilson & The Cavaliers – a 60s Texas group who are best-remembered for their classic "Last Kiss" hit, but who've got plenty more to offer here! There's an echoey brilliance to most of these numbers that really stands out – a stark, spare, simple approach to pop that shows why the hinterlands of the US scene were often some of the hippest places to look for new music back in the day. Wilson's heartfelt vocals really come across with a tremendous sense of sadness here – spun out with very spacious sound in the studio, and backed by a beautifully blue blend of electric guitar, organ, and saxophone. Titles include "Last Kiss", "Sea Of Love", "Over The Mountain", "Ding Go The Chimes", "Kiss & Run", "Young Love", and "Day Before Our Wedding". CD

New MtumeKiss This World Goodbye ... LP
Epic, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early crossover set from Mtume – one that still holds onto some of the elements first forged in the spiritual jazz underground of the early 70s, yet one that also starts to showcase more of the tighter soul groove he'd burst into prominence in the early 80s! The blend is a great one, and makes the album one of Mtume's most compelling records – as even amidst some of the more grooving numbers, there's some great offbeat elements at work too – almost putting the record in the territory of work by Roy Ayers or Edwin Birdsong. The mighty Hubert Eaves contributes lots of great keyboards to the record, and famous partner Reggie Lucas plays guitar – while Mtume himself sings along with his percussion, and also gets some female vocal help from Tawatha. Titles include the sublime "The Closer I Get To You" – plus "Just Funnin", "Kiss This World Goodbye", "Love Lock", "Metal Flake Mind", and "This Is Your World". LP, Vinyl record album

New Nikki Sudden & Roland S HowardKiss You Kidnapped Charabanc ... LP
Creation/Numero, 1987. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Some of the moodiest music that Nikki Sudden recorded in the 80s – and that's saying a lot, given his other albums! The record's a duet with Roland S Howard – of Birthday Party and Lydia Lunch collaborative fame – and Howard has Nikki really moving into noisier territory – both with the guitar parts used on the tunes, and in the overall presentation of the lyrics and ideas of the tunes! There's no other band on the set, which gives the music a looser, less-structured feel than some of Sudden's other records – really letting the vocal and instrumental concepts ruminate in a space that's all their own – with completely sublime results. Titles include "Feather Beds", "A Quick Thing", "Crossroads", "Don't Explain", "Better Blood", and "Rebel Grave". LP, Vinyl record album

"One Way Ticket" has those strings, too – and features a nice hook-heavy number that's almost in a Tyrone Davis mode. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Nancy AmesLatin Pulse ... LP
Epic, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... $5.99
Nancy sings some sweet Latin groovers in Spanish – backed by groovy 60s arrangements from Joe Sherman! The feel here isn't quite as driving as on her classic "Mas Que Nada" album – but it does have a similar style – sort of blending easy 60s vocals with swinging pop Latin rhythms, all in a style that's pretty darn groovy, especially on the upbeat numbers! Tracks include Spanish versions of "Yesterday", "That Kiss", "A Taste Of Honey", "Call Me", and "Shadow Of Your Smile". LP, Vinyl record album

Erykah BaduMama's Gun ... CD
Universal, 2000. Used ... $3.99
Great stuff from Eryka Badu – sweet, mellow, soulful, and with a very righteous vibe! The record's got some impeccable production – and the best cuts have a stripped-down groove that mixes keyboards and vocals in a way that's similar to recent work by D'Angelo and Jill Scott. Eryka's all her own woman, though – and she keeps things very real with her own unique vocal style and phrasing on the lyrics. Loads of great tracks – and titles include "Kiss Me On My Neck", "Didn't Cha Know", "My Life", "AD 2000", "Bag Lady", "In Love With You", and "Booty". CD

Captain BeefheartSun, Zoom, Spark – 1970 to 1972 (Lick My Decals Off/Spotlight Kid/Clear Spot/Outtakes) (4LP set – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise/Rhino, Early 70s. New Copy 4LP ... $89.99 99.98
The Reprise Records run of Captain Beefheart – presented here in a special package that also features a full album of never-issued rare material as well! Beefheart at Reprise was a real high point – as the Captain was still full of all the primal, gritty elements of the previous years – but also refining the sound of the Magic Band as well – to a point where the increased musicianship only got more complex, yet helped focus the energy of the songs as well! The whole thing's worth it alone for the mindblowing combination of roots and modern on the guitar work – and the progression over three albums is one of the most striking you'll see at the time for any artist, in any style. The package features the full three albums Lick My Decals Off Baby, The Spotlight Kid, and Clear Spot – and the bonus Outtakes CD features titles that include "Little Scratch", "Kiss Where I Kain't", "The Witch Doctor Life (inst take)", "Harry Irene", "Alice In Blunderland (alt)", "Two Rips In A Haystack/Kiss Me My Love", "Nowadays A Woman's Gotta Hit A Man (early mix)", "Dirty Blue Gene (alt 1)", "Pompadour Swamp/Suction Prints", and "I Can't Do This Unless I Can Do This/Seam Crooked Sam".

Pattie BrooksLove Shook/Our Ms Brooks ... CD
Casablanca/FTG, 1977/1978. Used ... $19.99
A disco double-header! First up is Love Shook – classic disco from Pattie Brooks, and a soaring 70s set that's right up there with the best Casablanca Records grooves of the time! The rhythms here are upbeat and lively – strings mixed in with quick-stepping rhythms, all set to the vocals of Pattie, which have just the right sort of flow to take off nicely in the setting! Titles include "Love Shook", "Let's Make Love To The Music", "Girl Don't Make Me Wait", and a totally cool "Pop Collage Medley", which features bits of "Popcorn" and "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye". Next is Our Ms Brooks – a record that has Pattie reunited with the Soul Galore production team – working with backdrops that are full, but never too overblown – right in that perfect Casablanca mode! Titles include "Heartbreak In Disguise", "After Dark", "This Is The House Where Love Died", and "The Back-up Singer". CD

James BrownBodyheat ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
An enduring classic from James Brown – quite possibly the strongest of his late 70s albums, and a record that nicely balances the harder funk of the early part of the decade with a more sophisticated style that almost gets slightly jazzy at times! The vocals are planted strongly at the top of most tunes – really calling out the shots and directing the rhythms – even though they seem tight enough to keep snapping along on their own – and also noteworthy are some of the mellower numbers on the set, which are almost more compelling than some of the groovers! Titles include "Bodyheat", "What The World Needs Now", "Don't Tell It", "Kiss In 77", "Woman", "Wake Up And Give", and "I'm Satisfied". CD

Wilson Das NevesSamba-Tropi (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1970. Used ... $26.99
Heavy drums, and some great grooves throughout – a wonderful album from percussionist Wilson Das Neves, and maybe his best record ever! The album's more funk than the samba in the title – although the best numbers have a little bit of both – almost an instrumental take on the same territory as Jorge Ben at the end of the 60s, with wickedly riffing guitar and some nicely heavy drums. The lineup is an all-star one – Dom Salvador on piano, Ze Roberto on organ, and trombone from Ed Maciel – and the arrangements are handled by Erlon Chaves, with the same funky approach as his own great music! There's loads of great originals on the record – including "Essa Moca Ta Diferente", "Sarro", "Repouso", and "Bebete Vao Bora" – plus versions of cuts like "Venus", "Evil Ways", and "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye", all done as groovy instrumentals.

One of Miles' last great albums – a soundtrack composed in conjunction with Marcus Miller, and recorded with a mix of atmospheric electronics and trumpet solos, coming off in a way that sounds far better than most of his other attempts at this style from the time. Miller plays all the other instruments in the set, apart from some occasional guest work by players that include John Scofield, Earl Klugh, Omar Hakim, and Jason Miles. Titles include "Conchita", "Lament", "Los Feliz", "Lost In Madrid", "Siesta", "Kitt's Kiss", and "Wind". LP, Vinyl record album

A beautiful collection of vintage rock photographs, with a heavy focus on the 60s and 70s – wrapped up in a really lovely volume that also includes essays by Greil Marcus and a few photographers – in support of these gorgeous shots of artists who range from David Bowie to Johnny Cash, to The Supremes, Beastie Boys, Chet Baker, James Brown, Deborah Harry, B-52s, Iggy Pop, Kiss, Labelle, Lou Reed, and dozens and dozens of others! There's no overarching theory to the book, just a focus on really well-done, really striking photographs from a number of different photographers – over 100 images in all, wrapped up in a great oversized book with heavy paper that offers great reproductions of the color and black and white images.

A record that reunites Patty Duke with arranger Arnold Goland – whose pop talents in the studio work the same kind of magic with the singer that you'd find in some of the more impressive Brit female pop records of the time! Titles are a mix of different modes, all brought together nicely in the arrangements – and tunes include "The World Is Watching Us", "One Kiss Away", "Sure Gonna Miss Him", "Nothing But You", "Little Things Mean A Lot", and "Whenever She Holds You".

Concord (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
The Concord label gave guitarist Herb Ellis some of his greatest moments of the 70s – like this early cooker with guitarist Joe Pass – recorded live at the Concord Jazz Festival that gave the label its name! The 1973 performance has both players really opening up – never overwhelming each other, but driving with energy right from the start, then spacing out their own territory strongly on the solos. Backing is from bassist Ray Brown and drummer Jake Hanna – but the record leaves lots of room for guitar throughout – with tones and moments from both players that are a real surprise. Titles include "Seven Come Eleven", "Prelude To A Kiss", "Perdido", "Easy Living", and "Concord Blues". CD

John Ellison (Soul Brother Six)Up From Funk ... CD
Jamie, Late 60s/Early 70s/2013. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99 27.98
A deep deep retrospective on soul singer John Ellison – best known for his work in the group Soul Brother Six – but a heck of a great talent on his own! The set's an unusual one – in that it features a fair bit of old recordings from the vaults of Jamie Records, mixed with new recordings and remixes of older classics – including some of John's best with his famous group! Modern instrumental styles dominate most of the record, but Ellison's vocals are definitely old school – and have this crackling quality that shows his continued commitment to soul. The one thing missing from the package is a full set of dates, which might help us understand the recording history a bit more – but in their place are some surprisingly great notes from Ellison, which certainly makes up for that loss. Titles include "Leave Me Alone", "Sex Is Sex", "Magic Touch", "Wild & Free", "She's Hot She's Some Kind Of Wonderful", "A Kiss In The Wind", "Let Your Hair Hang Down", and "Spend The Rest Of My Life Making Love To You" – plus remakes of "I Need You Yes I Do", "I Don't Want To Cry", and "You Better Check Yourself" – and remixes of "See You Later Baby", "Play With Fire", and "Keep On Making Love To Me".

Bill Evans & Toots ThielemansAffinity ... LP
Warner, 1978. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A beautiful pairing – the keyboards of Bill Evans and harmonica of Toots Thielemans – presented here in a space that marks the record as one of the best from both players in the 70s! Some tunes are sad and blue, and very spare – others a bit more upbeat and lyrical, almost taking us back to Bill's more sprightly modes of the early 60s – and the clear, clean sound offers up the best tones from both players in a perfect space. Other musicians include Marc Johnson on bass, Eliot Zigmund on drums, and Larry Schneider on flute, tenor, and soprano sax – and Evans plays a bit of electric piano in addition to acoustic, something we always love! Titles include "I Do It For Your Love", "The Days Of Wine & Roses", "Jesus' Last Ballad", "The Other Side Of Midnight", "Blue & Green", and "Tomato Kiss". LP, Vinyl record album

Red Garland with Ray BarrettoRojo ... CD
Prestige (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $13.99
Red Garland's really cooking on this late 50s set – thanks to some added conga work from Ray Barretto on most of the album's tracks – and that great little groove that Barretto's percussion brought to some other soul jazz cookers like this from the time! Garland still gets plenty of space to spin out in that lyrical style he did better than just about anyone else – and core trio rhythm support is from George Joyner on bass and Charlie Persip on drums, who burn nicely when Barretto sits out – although we're definitely partial to the more complicated grooves featured with Ray. Titles include "Rojo", "Mr. Wonderful", "We Kiss In A Shadow", "Darling Je Vous Aime Beaucoup", and the nice groover "Ralph J Gleason Blues". CD

Dizzy GillespieReal Thing ... LP
Perception, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Stunning funk from the great Dizzy Gillespie – light years away from his early bop recordings! The album's a slammin batch of 70s instrumentals – Dizzy's trumpet firmly in the lead over electric backings that have more than a bit of funk in them. The bass is the main driving factor of the tunes – played either by Phil Upchurch or Chuck Rainey – and the tracks bounce along with a fierce and righteous groove that also includes hard riffing on guitar and some sweet piano lines. Players include Mike Longo, James Moody, and Bernard Purdie – and tracks include "N'Bani", "Matrix", "Soul Kiss", "Ding A Ling", and "Alligator". Great stuff, and a crucial album in Dizzy's lost career! Damn funky, too. LP, Vinyl record album

Chrysalis/Big Break (UK), 1983. New Copy ... $8.99
Sweetly grooving early 80s UK soul from David Grant – his first solo album after the breakup of Linx – and it's a nice one! There's a leaner pop soul sound at play here, one that would have sounded right at home on the US charts of the time – but it's never too poppy – and always with David's genuinely soulful voice out front. The songs are of pretty solid, with some uptempo numbers and some more ballad-y tunes – the latter of which are really nice! Includes "Rock The Midnight", "Love Will Find A Way", "Stop And Go", "Organize", "Watching You, Watching Me", Holding On", "In The Flow Of Love", "Wrap Yourself Around Me" and more. This Big Break CD edition has a healthy batch of bonus tracks and alternate versions – 9 in all: "Stop And Go (12" Master Mix)", "Love Will Find A Way (Single Version)", "Kiss Away The Blues", "Klik Trax", :Rick The Midnight (Single Version)" and more.

Herbie Hancock/YardbirdsBlow Up – Original Soundtrack (180 gram pressing) ... LP
MGM/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
An amazing little record – not only a fab 60s soundtrack, but a rare non-Blue Note 60s album by Herbie Hancock! The set was recorded for the film Blow Up – an incredibly dark thriller by Michaelangelo Antonioni, set in swinging London of the 60s, which provided a very groovy backdrop for Herbie's score! The tunes get plenty groovy on this set – dancing out with a combination of fast rhythms, nice piano and organ, and some of the jazzy flourishes you'd expect from a Quincy Jones soundtrack of similar vintage. The Yardbirds also make an appearance on the cut "Stroll On" – which features in one of the best scenes in the film – and other Herbie Hancock tracks include "The Thief", "Verushka", "The Naked Camera", "Bring Down The Birds", "The Kiss", and "The Bed".

Motown/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1977/1978. New Copy ... $14.99
Both of Thelma Houston & Jerry Butler's duo records for Motown – back-to-back in a single set! 1977's Thelma & Jerry is up first – and it's a truly sweet pairing of the 2 legendary voices – tempering the more crossover disco mode that Thelma was working so strongly in the mid-to-late 70s just a bit, but still done with a fairly slick, nice and warm sound. The vocal chemistry with Jerry is pretty wonderful, too! Butler and Hal Davis take partial credit for production and tracks include a great, soul style medley of the pop hits "If You Leave Me Now/Love So Right", "Only The Beginning", Stevie Wonder's "Joy Inside My Tears", "Let's Get Together", "It's A Lifetime Thing","I Love You Through Windows" and more. The follow-up Two To One is another gem – this one featuring arrangements by Willie Hutch, Van McCoy, and Terry Woodford. Titles include "Find A Way", "We Owe It To Ourselves", "Never Gonna Get Enough", "If It Would End", "Chicago Send Her Home", and "Don't Pity Me". Also includes the bonus Motown single "Kiss Me Now".

Isley Jasper IsleyBroadway's Closer Than Sunset/Caravan Of Love/Different Drummer ... CD
Superbird/CBS (UK), 1984/1985/1987. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
An Isley Jasper Isley 3-fer – the '84, '85 & '87's Broadway's Closer To Sunset Boulevard, Caravan Of Love and Different Drummer – in a single set! Broadway was the first breakaway effort from the trio of Ernie Isley, Chris Jasper, and Marvin Isley – a set that's got an even leaner groove than some of the Isley Brothers material from years before! The group really hit their stride right away – stepping out in a sweet array of funky rhythms that have some definite 80s touches on the beats, yet which still share all the best Isleys elements overall! Guitar parts are especially sharp – that carved in soul sound that showed up in most Isleys projects from the early 70s onwards – and the vocals have a great sense of warmth and soul, especially on the mellower tunes in the set, which turn down some of the more hook-heavy rhythms heard on other tracks. Titles include "Serve You Right", "Sex Drive", "Love Is Gonna Last Forever", "Kiss & Tell", "I Can't Get Over Losin You", "Look The Other Way", "Break This Chain", and "Broadway's Closer Than Sunset Blvd". Ernie and Marvin Isley team up with Chris Jasper and for Caravan, and more fully reinventing their for the 80s! The record features the wonderful "Caravan Of Love", a soulful spiritual tune that's kind of to 80s soul what The Impressions "People Get Ready" was to 60s soul! Different Drummer was the last album by this configuration of the group, taking on different modes, with some soul gems in the mix. Titles include "Dancing Around The World", "High Heel Syndrome", "Liberation" and more. Includes "Different Drummer", "Do It Right", "Blue Rose", "8th Wonder Of The World" and more. CD

Spring/Southbound (UK), 1979. Used ... $4.99
A bit of a disco effort from Millie, given the time, but also a record that still has plenty of nice soul touches – thanks to Brad Shapiro, Millie's longtime partner at the production helm! The album features a great 2 parter with a nice monologue, entitled "What Went Wrong Last Night (parts 1 & 2)", plus the strangely-titled "Never Change Lovers In The Middle Of The Night" – as well as the tracks "A Moment's Pleasure", "Kiss You All Over", "We Got To Hit It Off", and "Once You've Had It".

Syl JohnsonIs It Because I'm Black (limited edition) ... CD
Twinight, Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
An incredible new version of Syl Johnson's classic album Is It Because I'm Black – packaged here with a huge number of bonus cuts in a collection designed by Syl himself! The core album is one of the best ever soul albums to come out of Chicago – and it may well be one of the best soul albums to ever come out of the 60s! Syl Johnson mixes west side bluesy soul with some great Chicago soul arrangements by Jimmy Jones & The Pieces Of Peace – and the result is one of the heaviest soul albums you'll ever hear – hard-hitting and funky one minute, sweeter and more groovy the next – a wonderful portrait of the depth of Chicago soul at the time. Added to the original album are some tracks from later years – including a 2006 remake of "Is It Because I'm Black", some more conventional southern soul numbers from the early 70s, and Johnson's seminal 80s groover "Ms Fine Brown Frame". 20 tracks in all – with titles that include "Right On Sister", "Is It Because I'm Black", "Kiss By Kiss", "One Way Ticket", "Get Ready", "Black Balloons", "Walk A Mile In My Shoes", "Concrete Reservation", "Talk Bout Freedom", "New Day", "Your Love Is Good For Me", "That Is Why", "Together Forever", and "Tell The Truth".

Pete JollySweet September ... CD
AVA/VSOP, 1963. New Copy ... $10.99 14.99
Great work from one of the grooviest pianists of the 60s – a player who could always keep things lively and swinging, even in a small combo session! The album's one of Pete Jolly's gems for the Ava label – a follow-up to his semi-hit Little Bird, and like that one, a record done with some slight additional help from Howard Roberts on a few tracks. But this time around, Roberts' work is only on a few of the titles – leaving Pete's core trio to take over most of the grooves themselves, building strongly from warmly rolling rhythms by Chuck Berghofer on bass and Larry Bunker on drums, topped by Jolly's surprisingly soulful lines on piano – all in a blend that reminds us of the great balance between lyricism and groove we always find in the best work of Vince Guaraldi. Titles include "Sweet September", "Can't We Be Friends", "Any Number Can Win", "Soft Winds", "Oleo", "Yours Is My Heart Alone", "I'm Beginning To See The Light", and "Kiss Me Baby". CD

New Fern KinneyGroove Me ... LP
Malaco, 1979. Sealed ... $4.99
A standout classic from Fern Kinney – and a set that not only marked a big moment of evolution for southern soul, but also for the Mississippi scene as well! The set was recorded at the Malaco studios in Jackson, but has a vibe that's much closer to some of the TK Records material from Miami – that maturation of southern soul during the disco era – as warmer, more modern touches came into play with rootsier styles of vocals! Mike Lewis handled the string arrangements – giving the record the same disco vibe as some of his other work of the time, including Anita Ward's big debut – and Fern's vocals have this higher range than usual for a southern singer – almost more innately tuned towards clubby rhythms. Titles include a big hit remake of King Floyd's "Groove Me" – really marking the change from the original version – plus "Baby Let Me Kiss You", "Pillow Talk", "Sun Moon Rain", "Angel On The Ground", and "Under Fire".

You probably know the title cut, as it was her biggest hit, and the inspiration for loads of "answer" songs (some of which came from the James Brown camp!) – but the whole album's great, and filled with raw female soul material produced by Wardell Quezquerque with an edge that's a bit harder than the usual Stax set of the time! Titles include "Mr Big Stuff", "Take Him", "Think It Over", "Your Six Bit Change", and "You City Slicker". CD also includes some great bonus tracks – including the cut "Do Me", which has a great funky intro – plus "Helping Man", "Carry On", "Save The Last Kiss For Me", "Pick Up The Pieces", and "You Think You're Hot Stuff".

Ubiquity, 2007. New Copy ... $5.99 16.98
Majestic grooves from the mighty Shawn Lee – all put together with a brilliance to rival the best soundtrack and sound library work of the 70s! The set may well be the best so far in Lee's series of projects for Ubiquity – and it's got an even wider-ranging set of grooves than before – rhythms that run from conventionally funky to chromatically complex – all blossoming with sweet little touches, twists, and turns that keep things interesting throughout! Subtle strings mix with bouncing bass, electric keys, abstracted vocals, and lots of other weird sounds – creating a sense of sonic delight that never lets up, and which should go a long way towards redefining the sound of funk in the 21st century! Lee's never sounded better than in this setting – and titles include "Song For David", "Francoise Hardy", "Glass Act", "Kiss The Sky", "Fiendish Fifth", "Mondo Mondo", "Tired", and "Jawbreaker". CD

This is complex, accomplished material – classic soundtrack styled strings and other grander orchestrations blend with soundscape errata that's hard to define and describe – be it creaky, crackling beats, eerie bits of echo, or fuzzy effects.

Breathy vocals from the great Julie London – an album recorded early in her years on Liberty Records, but with a slightly full sound overall! Backings are by the orchestra of Pete King – a little heavy on the strings, but never too much so – just enough to give the tunes a sad-tinged sort of sound that glows and shimmers nicely behind Julie's vocals – very much in the moody feel you might expect from the trashy image of London in an alley on the cover! The set's never sleepy, and has a nicely dark undercurrent – on titles that include "Nobody's Heart", "The Exciting Life", "Something I Dreamed Last Night", "Well Sir", "In The Middle Of A Kiss", "Pousse Cafe", "Mad About The Boy", and "My Man's Gone Now".

The group's a small one, and features some especially great work from Tony Coe on alto and clarinet – still in a relatively swing-based mode, but already with those sharp edges that we love so much – and the rest of the record has a similar blend of older jazz with modern inflections, played by a group that also includes Johnny Picard on trombone, Ian Armit on piano, and Jimmy Skidmore on tenor – plus Humph himself on trumpet. Titles include "Love For Sale", "Undecided", "Willow Weep For Me", "Blue Lou", "Prelude To A Kiss", and "Bewitched". CD

Great solo work from Mama Cass – an unbridled batch of pop tunes with a sweet and dreamy finish, but this odd sort of edge too! The album's got a really wild approach – a sound that's even more baroque at times than that of The Mamas & The Papas, arranged and conducted by the great Jimmie Haskell with loads of weird little twists and turns in the backings – of the sort that only seem to unlock more of the strangely sinister side of Mama's sound at the best moments! Cass has a great range, but also a wonderful sense of personality – this slightly twisted vibe that really makes the sweet songs sound slightly eerie – on titles that include "Blow Me A Kiss", "Sour Grapes", "He's A Runner", "Lady Love", "Who's To Blame", "I Can Dream Can't I", and "Welcome To The World". CD features the bonus track "Make Your Own Kind Of Music" – plus five more tracks too! CD

Atlantic/Real Gone, 1981/1982. New Copy ... $15.99
A sweet double-header from Ullanda McCullough – a singer who's been previously overlooked in the world of CDs! First up is the Ullanda McCullough album from 1981 – a standout set from the great Ullanda – a singer who'd worked on countless sessions in the 70s, but who really came into her own with this self-titled set! The record has Ullanda working with the team of Ashford & Simpson – who she'd helped on her own records – and the music has this joyous, upbeat groove that's right in the best A&S mode – a style that's mostly uptempo, but still deeply soulful – and with a much wider range than the usual disco set. Titles include "Bad Company", "I'll Just Die", "Warm & Gentle Explosion", "It's You", and "Rumors". Watching You Watching Me follows up with an even deeper groove – a sweet jazzy take on 80s soul, done at a level that's almost more in the mode of some of the modern soul sets over at Capitol at the time – and with a vibe that shows that Ullanda's got a much richer vibe than you'd expect, if you only knew the singer from some of her session work! There's some great keyboards and jazzy inflections that really percolate the tunes nicely – and titles include "Getting Ready For Love", "Men Kiss & Tell", "What's It All About", "Don't Wanna Let You Go", and "Try Love for A Change".

"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". Produced by Todd Rundgren and engineered by Jack Douglas – the former a legend in his own right, the latter whose name appears on so many great records that range from other proto-punk and punk-era classics (Patti Smith Group, The Runaways) to the trashier side of the mainstream (prime early Cheap Trick, Aerosmith and Alice Cooper).

Incredible, simply incredible – and the best album to date from Rahsaan Patterson! Rahsaan first clocked in at the end of the 90s – as one of the first singers in a new spirit of soul that's now been firmly taken up by the Neo Soul underground. But instead of resting on his laurels and holding onto a surefire sound, Rahsaan's grown tremendously in the years since his last full LP – really pushing his style, deepening his approach, and coming up with a sound that's more powerful than we would have even expected! The album's got a completely solid feel that makes it a near-classic all the way through – spare and intimate, yet done with a fullness and confidence that easily puts Rahsaan in line with some of our favorite male soul singers of all time. Titles include "I Always Find Myself", "The One For Me", "The Best", "Loving You", "Don't Run So Fast", "So Hot", "April's Kiss", and "You Make Life Good". CD

Universal (France), 1954. Used ... $6.99
Beautiful work from one of the most sensitive song stylists in postwar Paris – pianist Bernard Peiffer, a player who really sparkles here in a set of familiar standards! There's a laidback, easygoing feel to the whole record – kind of a moody, late nite sort of vibe – one that lets Peiffer really play around with these familiar tunes! The album's a great French example of the criss-crossing of piano lines that was also happening in the US during the 50s – some of the fresher, modern ideas at play, while at the same time, a strong dose of sentiment that could also be pulled from the piano. Most numbers only feature the bass of Jean-Marie Ingrand behind Bernard's piano – and a few also feature drums from Pierre Delin. Titles include "Just You Just Me", "If I Had You", "Lullaby Of Birdland", "You Are My Sweetheart", "Memory Of A Dream", and "Prelude To A Kiss".

The late-career high points get loftier and loftier for the great Robert Plant! Plant is working here with his Sensational Shapeshifters, a band name that just as aptly applies to Plant himself, having shifted over to a progressive folk and roots mode, decades after conquering hard rock in Led Zeppelin! Recorded in England, after moving back home, with a more global-centric vibe than the Americana style of his previous couple records, it's really great stuff – and we genuinely appreciate him pushing creative boundaries at this stage, rather than coasting on his legend status. Includes "Little Maggie", "Rainbow", "Pocketful Of Golden", "Turn It Up", "A Stolen Kiss", "Somebody There", "Poor Howard", "House Of Love", "Up on The Hollow Hill (Understanding Arthur)" and "Abraden (Maggie's Babby)".

The masterpiece by one of the greatest genuine rock bands of all time – finally remastered! Let It Be veers all over the place, or at least as much as jangly rock music can, in the best way possible. Includes the pseudo twangy opener "I Will Dare", with the distinctly midwestern hardcore of the group's earlier years showing up on "We're Coming Out" and "Tommy Gets His Tonsils Out", and Westerberg's great heart-on-sleeve, ragged balladry appearing for the closers. Like the Meat Puppets and X, the 'Mats really found themselves after they shed the rigid rules of punk rock, and developed into something every bit as genuine. They followed the rock songbook just enough to keep their work warm and familiar, but with way too huge and hard-pounding heart to ever seem even the least bit derivative. Hell, they even make Kiss's "Black Diamond" sound sincere!

The title track is an incredible 20 minute workout – one that almost feels improvised, but which is never too free – always pulsating with a killer groove from the drums of Elvin Jones and bass of Jimmy Garrison – and featuring the trumpet of Freddie Hubbard in the frontline with Rollins' tenor – blowing with quite an edge throughout!

Sure, Pee Wee was a bit of a traditionalist on his instrument – the clarinet – but he's working here in a starkly modern way that almost recalls some of the best 50s work of Jimmy Guiffre, or some of the earlier sides by Steve Lacy. There's still a swing-based approach to the tunes, but they're handled in a spare style that features equal interplay between Russell, trombonist Marshall Brown, bassist Russell George, and drummer Ronnie Bedford – a great player who really makes the album sparkle! The tracks include a couple of Thelonious Monk titles – "Ask Me Now!" and "Hackensack" as well as a couple of Marshall Brown originals – "Licorice Stick" and "Calypso Walk". Other titles are Ornette Coleman's "Turnaround", Coltrane's "Some Other Blues" and Ellington's "Prelude To A Kiss". LP, Vinyl record album

Classic vocal work from Slim Smith – easily one of the most soulful singers in the Jamaican scene at the end of the 60s – heard here with some lead tracks on his own, and singing with his group The Uniques – which also featured work from Ken Boothe and Derrick Morgan! All tracks here were produced by Bunny Lee, at a variety of Kingston studios – in modes that lie equally between rocksteady and early reggae rhythms – with instrumentation from likely suspects who include Sly & Robbie on drum and bass, and either Winston Wright or Ansel Collins on organ. Titles include "Take Me Back", "Sunny Side Of The Sea", "Keep That Light", "Kiss Me Each Morning", "Time Has Come", "Blessed Are The Meek", and "Give Me Some More Loving". LP, Vinyl record album

Joanie SommersLet's Talk About Love ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $13.99
A very powerful little session from Joanie Sommers – and like most of her work from the time, one that's done in a great blend of jazz and mainstream pop! Orchestrations are by Tommy Oliver, and there's plenty of dynamic horn passages to keep things interesting – even on the mellower numbers, which are often some of the best in the set – and feature Joanie's sweeter vocals amidst a darker bank of trombones that dip and turn gently. The more upbeat numbers often feature some nice percussion touches to get the groove going – and titles include "Till There Was You", "Make The Man Love You", "Spring Is Here", "Let's Talk About Love", "After The Lights Go Down Low", "Namely You", "Kiss & Run", and "I'll Never Stop Loving You".

Nikki SuddenTexas/Dead Men Tell No Tales (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Creation/Secretly Canadian, 1986/1987. New Copy 2 CDs ... $12.99 16.98
Nikki Sudden's first couple records for the Creation label – the hugely influential, if somewhate modest selling Texas and Dead Men Tell No Tales – in 2CD set, with a lot of excellent bonus tracks! Sudden was always one to balance experimental creative tendencies with more immediately engaging classic rock influences, going back to his days in Swell Map, and those strengths are in full force here in the mid-to-late 80s. Jangly guitars and emotionally resonant lyricism abound, and you can truly sense the impact he had on some of best indie rock songwriters of the late 80s onward. Essential stuff! Texas includes "Jangle Town", "Death Is Hanging Over Me", "Broken Tooth", "Dumb Angel/Stuka", "Wedding Dress", "Deppers Bridge" and more, plus the bonus tracks "Back To The Coast", "Breaking Lines", "The Last Bandit" and more. "Dead Men Tell No Tales" includes "When I Cross The Line", "Dog Latin", "Cupful Of Change", "(Girl With The) Wooden Leg" and "Kiss At Dawn" and more, plus bonus tracks "Flowerbed Romance", "When She Smiles", "The Ragged School" and more. The 2CDs include the 2 complete original albums, plus 11 bonus tracks in all! CD

SupremesWhere Did Our Love Go ... LP
Motown, 1964. Very Good ... $9.99
About as classic as you can get for the early Supremes – a set that has the group really hitting hard on all levels, thanks to production from the team of Holland-Dozier-Holland, plus a bit of help from Smokey Robinson – all of whom really help push the Supremes out of simple girl group soul – into the realm of Motown genius they would nearly rule for years to come! Tunes are by HDH, Norman Whitfield, and Smokey – top-shelf songwriting that further enforces the strength of the set – with that mix of poise and class, yet soul and feeling that always graced the group at their best. Titles include the sublime "When The Love Light Starts Shining Through His Eyes", plus the classics "Where Did Our Love Go" and "Baby Love", and the tracks "Come See About Me", "I'm Giving You Your Freedom", "Your Kiss Of Fire", "Ask Any Girl", and "A Breath Taking Guy".

Betty SwannComplete Atlantic Recordings ... CD
Atlantic/Real Gone, Early 70s. New Copy ... $15.99
A tremendous collection of work from the great Betty Swann – a hell of a soul singer who'd recorded previously for the Money and Capitol Records, but who really hit her height on this string of 70s singles for Atlantic Records! Betty never cut a full album for the label, so this period is a bit overlooked – but this smashing set really makes up for that loss, and finally brings together all these wonderful tunes – including a fair bit of rare b-sides, duets with singer Sam Dees, and five previously unreleased tracks! The work was produced at a range of different sites that really help definite the sound – a host from the Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, produced by Rick Hall; more from Philly with arrangements by Thom and Tony Bell; and a host of mature southern soul numbers done by the great Brad Shapiro. Together, the tracks show Betty really evolving as a singer – moving with strength that she never had in her early years, and this sensitivity of expression that only gets better as the collection moves on. 23 tracks in all – including "Cold Day In Hell", "Victim Of A Foolish Heart", "I Feel The Feeling", "All The Way In Or All The Way Out", "Kiss My Love Goodbye", "Time To Say Goodbye", "Yours Until Tomorrow", "Be Strong Enough To Hold On", "Heading In The Wrong Direction", and "Just As Sure".

Johnny ThundersSo Alone (200 gram pressing) ... LP
Drastic Plastic, 1978. New Copy ... $25.99
The most legendary post-New York Dolls solo work by Johnny Thunders! Thunders is one of the great rock guitar stylists of his time – messy as he was, the messiness is a big part of the charm – but the biggest surprise on this album is the disarmingly beautiful title tune. Also includes some great, loud, sloppy cover tunes on was well Johnny's own, and we've come to love it over the years just as much as the Dolls ouvre! Other tracks include "Pipeline", "Great Big Kiss", "Ask Me No Questions", "Subway Train", "Downtown", "London Boys", "Daddy Rollin' Stone" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Piero Umiliani/Basso ValdambriniI Piaceri Proibiti (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
CAM/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A beautifully jazzy soundtrack from the great Piero Umiliani – one that features solo work by some of the key members of the Basso Valdambrini sextet! The style here is very much in the mode of the best jazz soundtracks used during the French new wave years – simple themes that burst out boldly, and allow plenty of space for jazz improvisation – often along highly rhythmic lines! The music would be very much at home in a Roger Vadim film – and includes plenty of trumpet and tenor lines throughout, plus some additional more playful bits. Nora Orlandi sings "Baby Don't Kiss Me" – and other tunes include "Notte In Algeria", "Night Twist", "Storie Proibite", "Paparazzo's Jump", "Alienazione", and "Carlo E Sofia". LP, Vinyl record album

Watts 103rd Street Rhythm BandTogether (cartoon cover) ... LP
Warner, 1968. Very Good- ... $14.99
Mad mad funk, and the fantastic second LP by the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band – the group that proved to everyone that LA could be just as funky as any other city in the 60s! The record draws strongly from the group's indie roots in the funky 45 scene – and the album's filled with short tracks that bump along in jagged rhythms, offbeat arrangements, and some slight touches of sweeter soul. Charles Wright is leading the group on vocals, and taking a stronger presence on these soul-based cuts – but as before, it's the strength of the overall group that really makes the album great – especially the bass work of Melvin Dunlap and the funky drums of James Gadson! Titles include some killer original tracks by the band – like "Do Your Thing", "Giggin' Down 103rd", "Phuncky Bill", "65 Bars & A Taste Of Soul", and "A Dance, A Kiss, & A Song" – plus great covers of "Something You Got", "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag", and "Knock On Wood". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has some wear, a split top seam with a small rip, some splitting and packing tape on the other seams, a promo sticker, a spot of tape residue, an ink stamp on the front, and a bit of pen and a couple of small stains on the back.)

Nancy WilsonBut Beautiful (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1969. Used ... $4.99
One of the greatest Nancy Wilson albums of the 60s – a small combo jazz date, done with a style that's different than some of Wilson's larger sessions of the time! The group has a relaxed, easygoing feel – and Wilson slides in with a style that's a lot more laidback and subtle than on other Capitol dates – almost the mellow feel of a late 50s Dakota Staton date, but still song with all the careful class that Nancy brings to her vocals! The group's a quartet, led by pianist Hank Jones – and featuring Gene Bertoncini on guitar, Ron Carter on bass, and Grady Tate on drums – on titles that include "Happiness Is A Thing Called Joe", "Do it Again", "Glad To Be Unhappy", "Prelude To A Kiss", "Supper Time", and "I Thought About You".

VariousChristmas Of Emotions ... CD
Expansion (UK), New Copy ... $16.99
A stunningly soulful Holiday set – one that goes way past the overplayed Christmas soul tunes of the 70s and 80s, and which has a lot fresher feel than a Christmas Slow Jams set as well! Most of the numbers here are contemporary, and are a mix of Neo Soul artists from the underground, and a few favorite voices from years past – all represented in a batch of tracks that are mighty darn great, and will help your December listening get way past "This Christmas" and Motown Holiday records! Titles include "Give Me A Star" by Bebe & Cece Winans, "Christmas At My House" by Rahsaan Patterson, "Thank You" by Ledisi, "Christmas Day" by Frank McComb, "It's Not Really Christmas" by Trina Broussard, "A Love Letter Christmas" by R Kelly, "Christmas Time Is Here" by Jeffrey Osborne, "Cold Winter In The Ghetto" by Lonnie Hill, "December 25th" by Rosie Gaines, "Christmas Love & You" by Will Downing, "A Kiss For Christmas" by Luther Vandross, and "Christmas Of Emotions" by Eddie Sea with Shauntia Toussaint.

VariousDisco (Not Disco) – Left Field Disco Classics From The New York Underground ... CD
Strut (UK), 2000. Used ... $24.99
The quirky 80s downtown club scene lives again in this chilling post-disco collection from Strut! The set's got a similar feel to the 9 O'Clock Drop set on Nuphonic – and fits in nicely with the rediscovery of groups like ESG and 23 Skidoo. The cuts are extremely hard to pin down – a bit funk, a bit punk, some disco, and a touch of soul – and there's more than a few on here that we never thought we'd hear again after 1985! Titles include "Kiss Me Again" by Dinosaur, "Cavern" by Liquid Liquid, "I Walk" by Don Cherry, "Over & Over" by Material, "Tell You Today (12" mix)" by Loose Joints, "School Bell" by Indian Ocean, "Voices Inside My Head" by Common Sense, "Spasticus Autisticus (version)" by Ian Dury & The Compass Point All Stars, and "Walking On Thin Ice (1981 re-edit)" by Yoko Ono.

VariousDisco Giants Volume 11 – 20 Full Length Disco Classics Of The 80s ... CD
Vinyl Masterpiece (Netherlands), Mid 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $21.99
Plenty of giants here, although not of the 70s disco scene you might expect from the title – and instead some great 80s groovers who really helped transform the sound of the dancefloor in the years after disco! There's plenty of basslines, beats, and keyboards in the mix – and most numbers are nice and lean, with a very focused sound. Titles include "Weekend" by Class Action, "Breakin (US club mix)" by Ollie & Jerry, "If You Should Ever Be Lonely (club mix)" by Val Young, "Work That Sucker To Death" by Xavier, "Takes A Little Time (Bandito mix)" by Total Contrast, "Just The Way You Like It" by SOS Band, "Circles" by Atlantic Starr, "Hold On To What You've Got" by Evelyn Champagne King, "Shiver" by George Benson, "Sucker For Candy (hot candy kiss mix)" by Rozlyn Sorrell, "Serious" by Donna Allen, and "Can I" by Cashmere.

VariousFree Soul 2010s – Urban Sweet ... CD
Victor (Japan), 2014. New Copy ... $23.99
One of the coolest collections of contemporary soul we've ever heard – a wonderful batch of work in a laidback, cosmic sort of vibe! The music here resonates strongly with the 70s vintage you'll find in most of the other Free Soul compilations – but it's all relatively recent, and represents a great new wave of music from the (mostly) American underground – by artists who may well be tomorrow's version of Stevie Wonder or Marvin Gaye! As usual with the Free Soul sets, the track list is superb – so much so, that there's loads of tracks here we would have missed otherwise – and titles include "Never Be The Same" by Bilal, "Look Up" by Daley, "Kissing Game" by Dwele, "What's Going On" by Brian Owens, "Kiss Of Life" by Chris Turner, "Wonderlove" by Kris Bowers with Chris Turner, "Shangri La" by James Tillman, "All We Do For Love" by Benny Sings, "Superwoman" by Anita Wardell, "Sweet Dreams" by Laura Holding, and "The Man I Love" by Gregoire Maret with Cassandra Wilson.

New VariousHoney & Wine – Another Gerry Goffin & Carole King Song Collection ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. Used ... $9.99
Sublime sounds from the songwriting team of Gerry Goffin and Carole King – a tremendous little package that features some of their biggest hit singles, and a fair bit of unusual work as well! The package is the second set from Ace to feature the Goffin/King magic – and it's proof that the pair had plenty of greatness to offer back in the 60s – a never-ending flow of wonderful music, recorded here by an array of soul, rock, and pop artists of the time. The songs originally appeared on a variety of different labels, but have been collected together here – presented with tune-by-tune notes that not only tell the story of the songs, but the particular recordings as well. Titles include "A Long Way To Be Happy" by Carolyn Daye, "Honey & Wine" by The Hollies, "I Happen To Love You" by The Myddle Class, "So Goes Love" by The Turtles, "No Easy Way Down" by Nancy Wilson, "Oh No Not My Baby" by Maxine Brown, "Go Away Little Girl" by Bobby Vee, "Brand New World" by Bobby Scott, "Not Just Tomorrow But Always" by Bertell Dache, "Tell Daddy" by Ben E King, "I Need You" by Chuck Jackson, "Stage Door" by Peter James, "He Hit Me & It Felt Like A Kiss" by Jody Miller, "Don't Forget About Me" by Barbara Lewis, "Take A Giant Step" by The Rising Sons, and "Is This What I Get For Loving You" by Marianne Faithful.

Outta Sight (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
Not Belgian music – despite what you might think from the title – but an assortment of great American soul and pop from the early 60s – all of which have a very sweet-stepping groove! The style here is the mode that's always been a favorite of Belgian soul fans – who dig a more midtempo groove than the British Northern Soul dancers – and the tracks do a great job of stepping across scenes and genres, to bring in a surprisingly wide range of music – all of which really sounds great together! The set (and the whole series) is a really nice change from the usual Brit soul collections – and is filled with wonderful tunes we never would have discovered otherwise – a great lineup that includes "I Say That's Allright" by Roosevelt Jones, "High In The Misty Sky" by Jackie Lynton, "Let Me Be The Fool" by Lucky Clark, "Thinking Of You" by Freddy Jaye, "Familiar" by Richard Hayes, "Kiss Away" by Otis Blackwell, "Magic Carpet" by Al Reed, "Someday & Someway" by Michael Stevens, and "Big Hand Little Hand" by Ronnie Savoy.

A disco double-header! First up is Love Shook – classic disco from Pattie Brooks, and a soaring 70s set that's right up there with the best Casablanca Records grooves of the time! The rhythms here are upbeat and lively – strings mixed in with quick-stepping rhythms, all set to the vocals of Pattie, which have just the right sort of flow to take off nicely in the setting! Titles include "Love Shook", "Let's Make Love To The Music", "Girl Don't Make Me Wait", and a totally cool "Pop Collage Medley", which features bits of "Popcorn" and "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye". Next is Our Ms Brooks – a record that has Pattie reunited with the Soul Galore production team – working with backdrops that are full, but never too overblown – right in that perfect Casablanca mode! Titles include "Heartbreak In Disguise", "After Dark", "This Is The House Where Love Died", and "The Back-up Singer". CD
