Koko TaylorBasic Soul ... CD
Chess (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Around August 27, 2014
A stone killer from Koko Taylor – way more than blues, and recorded with that hard and heavy sound that Chess was using at the time for the crossover audiences! Koko's vocals are as tight as any hard soul diva – and the backing on the record is a small combo that includes Joe Young on guitar, Lafayette Leake on piano, and Louis Satterfield on bass. Willie Dixon produced, and wrote a number of the songs – and titles include "Pollution", "Tease Your Man", "That's The Way Love Is", "Un Huh My Baby", "It's A Poor Dog", "I Need More & More", and "Let Me Love You Baby".

New Luther IngramPity For The Lonely – The KoKo Singles Vol 1 ... CD
Koko/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of overlooked Memphis soul – the earliest work of the legendary Luther Ingram – brought together here properly for the first time ever! Although Ingram's probably best known for his mega-huge hits in the early 70s, he really sounds amazing here in the early days – a vocalist with a bit more grit than we remember, working with backings that have an underground, deep soul take on the Memphis sound of the time. There's a somewhat more down home quality to some of these tunes than on other Memphis work from the late 60s – a style that probably didn't play as big up north as some of the hitmakers from the scene, but which is really worth of rediscovery all these many years later. Unlike other over-cliched work on Stax and Hi Records, most of these tunes have a really fresh, new sort of feel – less-iconic, and all the more appealing because of that fact. CD features 19 tracks in all, pulled from Ingram's first 10 singles – including "You've Got To Give Love To Get Love", "Ghetto Train", "I Can't Stop", "My Honey & Me", "Missing You", "Looking For A New Love", "Pity For The Lonely", "Home Don't Seem Like Home", "To The Other Man", "I'll Love You Until The End", and a rare radio promo of "My Honey & Me".

New Luther IngramLet's Steal Away To The Hideaway/Do You Love Somebody (plus bonus track) ... CD
Koko/Kent (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two classics from Luther Ingram! First up is Let's Steal Away – a masterfully mature record that really helped take southern soul to the next level in the mid 70s! The music has a slow-building, sensuous sort of feel that's really great – a classy, sophisticated approach, but one that still has enough roots in the older modes to keep things real – a balance that's struck wonderfully by arrangers Johnny Baylor and John V Allen. Recording was done in Muscle Shoals, but at a level that really gets past some of the more standard modes that were being trotted out for more crossover artists – almost like they were holding back the best, waiting for Luther. Titles include "Sweet Inspiration", "Let's Steal Away To The Hideaway", "All That Shines", "I've Got Your Love In My Life", "It's Too Much", and "I'm Gonna Be The Best Thing". On Do You Love Somebody, Luther Ingram takes things deep deep deep – working up that more sophisticated groove developed on earlier albums, into a slinky southern style that's totally great – and pretty darn standard-setting all these many years later! As before, Ingram's working with producer Johnny Baylor – who also handled the arrangements with help from Tommy "Bump & Hustle" Stewart – really capturing a new level of maturity that was happening in the southern scene of the time – a wave perhaps inspired by Al Green's hits, but which really pushed forward in new directions for itself. Titles include "Time Machine", "Do You Love Somebody", "Do You Think There's A Chance", "Sorry", "Get To Me", "Faces", "Ain't Good For Nothing", and "Funny People". CD also features a bonus track – "I'll Love You Until The End (version 2)". CD

ExcitementsSometimes Too Much Ain't Enough ... LP
Penniman (Spain), 2013. New Copy ... $13.99
Plenty of excitement from this hip Spanish group – a really old school-styled soul act, complete with one hell of a great lead singer – and a very deep sound to match! Koko Jean Davis really tops most of the usual work of this nature – and is a true soul singer, at a Sharon Jones level – instead of just another retro-styled diva with a funk band in the back. And the rest of The Excitements are super-tight – and play more in a mode that's got the best late 60s funky soul echoes of Memphis than any sort of overdone cliches – really respectful of the singer in the lead, even though they've clearly got some great instrumental chops on their own. And best of all, the album's filled with original tunes, too – lots of fresh numbers that go way deeper than just the usual run of old soul covers, but which have a level of quality to match the classics too. Titles include "Don't You Dare Tell Her", "Ha Ha Ha", "Keep Your Hands Off", "That's What You Got", "I Believe You", "Fishing Pole", "The Hammer", and "Sometimes Too Much Ain't Enough".

Manfredo FestManifestations ... CD
Tabu (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $16.99
An incredible batch of Brazilian fusion – cut by keyboardist Manfredo Fest, and one of the few records he ever waxed in the US during the 70s! The record mixes Fest's soaring Brazilian groove with a tight soulful set of arrangements by Jerry Peters – a bit club-oriented, with a similar sound to some of the other records on the Tabu label at the time, but always sensitive to Fest's playing and writing – especially his Brazilian roots! The record features wonderful vocals by Roberta Davis – a very soulful singer who had a hip wordless style that was similar to Tania Maria's at the time – breezy, scatting, and very nice. Her work really makes the record sparkle, working perfectly with Fest's jazzy electric keyboards in a perfect way! Titles include "Jungle Kitten", "Koko & Leeroe", "Arigo", and "Who Needs It". Sweet reissue – in book-style cover, with new liner notes and an interview with Jerry Peters. CD

Gene HarrisNexus ... LP
Blue Note, 1976. Very Good ... $7.99
A great little solo set from Gene Harris – and a perfect example of that magical time after he'd left the Three Sounds, but hadn't yet hit the more standard styles of later years – a period when Harris was really experimenting with a wide range of keyboards and sounds! The set has arranger Jerry Peters weighing in – bringing some of his own quirky touches into play with Gene's wonderful work on keyboards – which includes plenty of Fender Rhodes and moog, as well as other keys of the time too. Funky titles include "Koko & Lee Rose", "Funky Business", "Rushin Roulette", "HRD (Boogie)", and "Gettin Down Country" – and the set's got a great mellow moody soul track called "Prayer 76", with a bit of a Roy Ayers feel.

Savoy (Japan), 1945/Early 60s. Used ... $4.99
Well, it's not the whole Charlie Parker Story – but the album does feature some great material from a very famous session, recorded on 11/26/1945, originally issued on 78s, along with extra tracks, compiled here in one of Savoy's posthumous Bird LPs from the early 60s. The group includes Miles Davis on trumpet, Bud Powell on piano, Curley Russell on bass, and Max Roach on drums – and titles include original and alternate takes of "Thriving From A Riff", "Meandering", "Koko", "Now's The Time", and "Billie's Bounce", all in early famous versions!

Charlie ParkerComplete Savoy Studio Sessions (Japanese pressing) (3CD set) ... CD
Savoy (Japan), Late 40s. Used 3CD ... $45.99
You'll be hard pressed to find a better collection of Charlie Parker's classic work on vinyl! Bird's great recordings for Savoy have often been poorly packaged over the years, but here you get the whole batch of seminal bop sides by the pioneering artist of the genre! Bird's the leader on most of these sides, but there's a nice set of recordings under Tiny Grimes and a very young Miles Davis too, with a host of players from the dawn of the bebop age, including Dizzy Gillespie, Bud Powell, Sadik Hakim, John Lewis, Duke Jordan, Curly Russell, Tommy Potter and Max Roach. An as you'd expect from this kind of set, you get loads of multiple takes so you can hear these pioneering players creating the style that would change the face of jazz forever. This set features 67 tracks in all, spread out over 3 CDs, with a nicely annotated book, and includes "I'll Always Love You Just The Same","Romance Without Finance", "Billie's Bounce", "Now's The Time", "Thriving On A Riff", "Koko", "Donna Lee", "Chasin The Bird", "Buzzy", "Milestones", "Half Nelson", "Another Hair Do", "Bird Gets The Worm", "Barbados", "Ah-Leu-Cha", "Constellation", "Parker's Mood", "Perhaps","Marmaduke", "Steeplechase" and more!

Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99 18.98
A classic set from this legendary Detroit festival – a mighty assemblage of roots and jazz performers that was put together by John Sinclair! The event was legendary at the time – and has lived on strongly via this great recording by Atlantic – one that really gets at the special fire of all the performers, and their very enthusiastic welcome by the audience too! Most of the material here is blues – but the set features a key track from Sun Ra & His Solar Myth Arkestra – a performance of "Live Is Splendid" from the Space Is The Place Suite. Other tracks include "I Walk On Gilded Splinters" by Dr John, "Road Runner" by Jr Walker, "Wang Dang Doodle" by Koko Taylor, "Gambler's Blues" by Otis Rush, "Ain't That Loving You" by Bobby Blue Bland, "Honey Bee" by Muddy Waters, "Form Kinetic" by CJQ, "Dust My Broom" by Johnny Shines, and "Goin Down" by Freddie King.

A nice selection of classic 60s soul numbers, focusing on women who like to exercise their pipes, and while we had remembered this set hewed close to the mainstream, there's a few nice little nuggets on here that they dug a little deeper for. 14 tracks in all: "The Nitty Gritty" by Shirley Ellis, "Tell Mama" by Etta James, "Hard To Handle" by Patti Drew, "Bold Soul Sister" by Ike & Tina Turner, "Lee Cross" and "You Send Me" by Aretha Franklin, "Heartbeat" by Gloria Jones, "Stay With Me" by Lorraine Ellison, "Wang Dang Doodle" by Koko Taylor, "I Know (You Don't Love Me No More)" by Barbara George, "Rescue Me" by Fontella Bass, "Hypnotized" by Linda Jones, "Why (Am I Treated So Bad)" by the Sweet Inspirations, and "Ask Me" by Maxine Brown.

New Orchestra BaobabNight At Club Baobab – Senegalese Dance Music Of The 70s ... CD
Oriki (France), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous compilation of rare work by one of the hippest African groups of the 70s – the mighty Orchestra Baobab, a combo who wove together many different strands of jazz, funk, and soul! The tunes here are all live ones – recorded in the mid 70s in the group's home turf at Club Baobab, and often done in a looser, more open mode than some of their better-known sessions – a perfect setting for the complicated rhythms, snakey horn parts, and soulful vocals that emerge as the set moves on! A few tracks here get nice and funky – funkier than even we would have expected from the group – and others maintain a compellingly creative sound that really keeps things interesting, with plenty of exotic overtones and otherworldly styles! The whole thing's great – way more than just a collection of 70s Afro Funk, and a record that's nicely links up the worlds of both Fela and Mulatu through its creative interplay of sounds. CD features 13 tracks that include "Jin Ma Jin Ma", "Souleymane", "Saf Mana Dem", "Kelen Ati Leen", "Seeri Koko", "Liti Liti", "Dirarabi", "On Verra", "Cabral", "Wango", "Sey", and "Yolanda". CD

A holy grail of 70s African Funk – and not just for the unusual look of the cover! The set's a really unique one – almost rootsier than most of the better-known Ghanian grooves of the time, but funkier too – with a brilliant blend of raw percussion, quirky basslines, and some smoking horn parts that are a lot more American soul and funk than the usual 70s African groove! The whole thing's stunning all the way through – a record that totally informs an understanding of its generation, yet in ways that no other record can touch. Wonderful all the way through, with not a bit of filler – and all cuts are right on the money for any fan of African funk!

KokoloHeavy Hustling ... LP
Record Kicks (Italy), 2009. New Copy ... $13.99
An amazing new sound from Kokolo – one that takes their Afro Funk groove, and turns it on a host of James Brown classics – all with a result that's completely unique! The album's hardly a copycat of James' original style – and instead, it reworks his funky favorites with a complicated approach to rhythms – one that shows a rich criss-crossing between JB and Fela modes, almost an echoing amplification of the 70s influences that were passing back and forth between the US and African funk scenes! The vocals are something else entirely – as rhythmic as the grooves, with a quality that isn't as all-out soulful as James – but in a good way, as this helps them simmer down nicely with the instrumentation, and throw in a whole new level of counterpoint to the music. We're honestly stunned – quite surprised and impressed at this turn that Kokolo has taken, reaching forward for a sound that nobody else has touched. Titles include versions of "Mind Power", "The Popcorn", "Soul Power", "The Grunt", "Think", "Bring It Up", and "It's A New Day". LP, Vinyl record album

"Outro Mundo" cooks with a groove that's similar to Antibalas and Kokolo – a style that's a proud heir to the sound of Fela in the 70s, served up in a slightly more modern mode that features female and male vocals mixing on the lead! The live version has a bit more bite than the studio one – but both sides are pretty darn great! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soundway (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99 19.98
One of the coolest collections of rare psychedelia we've heard in a while from anywhere in the world – this one focusing on Afro Rock & psych from 70s Nigeria – among the greatest releases to date on the Soundway label, which only does great work! The music has the touchstone elements of raw garage funk & rock sounds from around the globe at the time – fuzzed out guitars and organs, searing solos, hard grooving rhythms and passionate vocals. But the guitars and rhythms are uniquely African, too, with highlife and Afrobeat gestures along with the global psychedelic soul sounds. 33 tracks on 2CDs: "Nwantini/Die Die" by The Ify Jerry Krusade, "Rough Rider" by The Hygrades, "Yem Efe" by Tony Grey Super 7, "Ikoko" yb Eppi Fanio, "All Night Long" by Bongos Ikwue, "Babalawo" by The Thermometers, "Eti Ufok" by The Ceejebs, "Active Action" by The Action 13, "Onye Ije" by The Strangers, "Bullwalk" by The Comrades, "Egwu Aja" by Ofo The Black Company and more.

New OsibisaHeads ... LP
MCA, 1972. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really wonderful third album from Osibisa – and a record that really crystallizes the group's sound into a trademark blend of African roots and more progressive-styled jamming! There's a mode here that's perfect for the cross-cultural London of the post-colonial 70s – a style that brings many strands of music into the capital, and mixes them up with some of the headier styles going down at the time. Bits of highlife echo alongside more tribally-based percussion – but most of the instrumentation on the set also has a strong ear for jazzy changes, especially during the flute and keyboards passages that make the record so great. Titles include "Kokorokoo", "Che Che Kule", "Sweet Sounds", "Sweet America", and "Do You Know". LP, Vinyl record album

New Mississippi Fred McDowellI Do Not Play No Rock N Roll ... CD

An incredible record from Mississippi Fred McDowell – a set that was issued on a big label, but which has a wonderfully rootsy feel throughout – in a way that almost out-does any work from the indie blues labels of the time! The package was put together by Tommy Couch as an early Malaco production – but it's even more stripped-down than later blues work from those studios – as it features mostly just Fred on vocals and guitar, introducing himself and his music – then working through these incredible inflections on electric guitar, which are as far from the rockish sound of all the crossover blues that McDowell promises he won't provide in the title! Really timeless stuff, brilliantly recorded – with cuts that include "Red Cross Store", "61 Highway", "Jesus Is On The Mainline", "Kokomo Me Baby", and "Good Morning Little School Girl". CD
