New Black NastyTalking To The People (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Enterprise/4 Men With Beards, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 18.98
Excellent heavy funk from Stax! Black Nasty were one of the heaviest groups on the label – with a rock-solid guitar-based groove that went even farther than the Bar-Kays, who were no slouch in the guitar department themselves! The grooves are all slow to midtempo, with the band coming down hard on the downbeats, jamming away in a style that sounds more like heavy Detroit Westbound than sweetly soulful Memphis. Most all cuts have vocals – sung in a shouting style by the band that works well with the tripped-out hooks of the songs. This was the only album the band ever cut, but it's become a fast favorite among those who like their funk raw. Tracks include "We're Doin Our Thing", "Rushin Sea", "Booger The Hooker", "Black Nasty Boogie", "Nasty Soul", and "Getting Funky Round Here". LP, Vinyl record album

Bus People Express (Poets Of Rhythm)Augusta Georgia (Here I Come)/South Carolina ... 7-inch
Hotpie & Candy/Daptone, 1993. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99 6.99
A rarity from the early 90s funky underground by Bus People Express – who were alternately working as Soul Saints during this period – and they would soon trailblaze the contemporary funk scene as Poets Of Rhythm! "Augusta Georgia (Here I Come)" starts out with stripped-down drums and some gritty call and response group vocals, before the guitar and bass come storming in. Reminiscent of James Brown at his rawest and grittiest, ala Motherlode! "South Carolina" has a slower cooking style with some southern funky soul swagger, as you might guess from the title. A prescient blast of modern funk to come! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Chambers BrothersPeople Get Ready ... LP
Vault, 1965. Very Good- ... $6.99
The first album ever from The Chambers Brother – a much rootsier set than the psychedelic soul that later earned them fame in the 60s! The set's heavy on influences from folk, blues, and gospel – and pitches the group more towards the crossover college scene than the mainstream soul crowd – thanks to an appreciatively rootsy style of production that really has the vocals and acoustic instrumentation presented without any other augmentation. Tracks were recorded live at The Unicorn in Boston and the Ash Grove in LA – and most numbers are covers, with versions of "Summertime", "Your Old Land", "It's All Over Now", "Reconsider Baby", "People Get Ready", "Tore Up", and "Money". LP, Vinyl record album

Citrus SunPeople Of Tomorrow ... CD
Dome (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $16.99
A really sweet set from this Incognito side project – a group who are even jazzier than usual work from Bluey and crew! The album's mostly instrumental – save for some great guest vocals from Valerie Etienne – and the focus is on longer solos on keyboards, guitar, and trumpet – all spun out over the kind of classic grooves you'd expect from Incognito! Think of the record as a jazz fusion project from the late 70s, with some R&B undercurrents – just the kind of set that only a rare few like Bluey could do so well. Valerie sings on a great cover of Terry Callier's "What Color Is Love", and the album also features an instrumental take on "What's Going On", plus the tracks "Yesterday Detroit", "Cooking With Walter", "Tonight We Dance", "Mais Uma Vez", and "People Of Tomorrow".

One of the best singles on the tiny Half Moon label – a wonderful blend of old school funk and a few hip hop influences – all worked out over a snapping rhythm that's totally great! There's not much vocals here, save for a few chanted bits – and there's this great electro keyboard part that comes in almost like scratching – plus a few Newcleus-styled vocoded vocals! 12-inch, Vinyl record

There's vocals on about half the tracks, and the sound is sort of LA studio fusion from the 70's, with a nice bit of Brazil thrown in. Tracks include "Happy People", "Deja Vu", and "Dream Flow".

New DarondoLet My People Go (colored vinyl) ... LP
Luv N' Haight, Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99
Mad homegrown soul from the enigmatic Darondo – a brief Bay Area star back in the 70s, and also host of TV comedy and children's shows! Darondo only ever saw release of 3 singles, but they're all pretty darn great – a weird mix of funk, soul, and sly slinky grooves – very unique in conception, and with a heady, tripped-out vision that makes us wish he'd recorded more. Luv N Haight have really done Darondo justice with this set – bringing together all 6 tracks from the singles, plus 3 more previously unissued numbers – all in a great package that features words from the man himself, plus some great images from his older TV shows. A near-lost soul figure, but one with enough charisma to fill the careers of other more famous acts! Titles include "How I Got Over", "Let My People Go", "Legs (part 1)", "True", "Didn't I", "I Want Your Love So Bad", "My Momma & My Poppa", "Sure Know How To Love Me", and "Listen To My Song".

Contact/Boplicity (UK), 1963. New Copy ... $11.99
A great high-concept composition from Duke Ellington – one that rivals the earlier brilliance of his Liberian Suite! Like that one, vocals are a key part of this long-form work – a special performance done for the Century Of Negro Progress Exposition in Chicago in 1963 – with an all-star cast that includes Jimmy Jones both at the piano and conductor's stand; Joya Sherrill on vocals with the Irving Bunton Singers, Jimmy Grissom, Jimmy McPhail, and Lil Greenwood; Billy Strayhorn on celeste, Juan Amalbert on conga, and other familiar Ellingtonians in the larger group! The tunes have a mix of gospel and folk roots, turned towards more modern Ellington compositional modes – and almost all numbers feature vocals, including one with narration by Ellington himself. Titles include "Will You Be There", "Come Sunday", "David Danced", "Montage", "My Mother My Father", "My People", "The Blues Ain't", and "What Color Is Virtue". CD

An eight piece combo, the Fantastic Souls are a deep enough roster bring a furiously paced, heated intensity as well have enough space for solos and more dynamic interplay. The drums are nice and heavy, the guitars vamp nicely, the horns are perfectly punchy, plus a nice bit with some bongos.

Voodoo Funk (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $16.99
A very cool Afro-styled number from the 70s – but one that's got a slightly different vibe than usual! The feel here is kind of a skittish mix of funk and more offbeat elements – at a level that almost sounds like ESG recording in Lagos – especially in the blend of bass, percussion, and sing-song vocals! The horns give the whole thing a bit more of a straight Afro Funk punch at times – which balances things out nicely. The flipside is every bit as charming as the main track – with similarly bright lyrics, and cool guitar bits that almost come across with a steel pan sort of feel at times! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Four TopsMain Street People ... LP
ABC, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $2.99
Really nice work from The Four Tops – proof that they were still going quite quite strong after Motown! The album's got a hip sound that shows the group moving through a wider range of emotions than we ever remember – crafting rich deep harmonies that still stand apart from the big wave of sweet soul quartets of the early 70s, and which sparkle with all the emotion that Levi Stubbs' voice had to offer. Includes their great theme to Shaft In Africa, the track "Are You Man Enough" – plus loads of other great ones like "I Just Can't Get You Out Of My Mind", "It Won't Be The First Time", "Sweet Understanding Love", "Too Little, Too Late", "Peace Of Mind", and "Main Street People".

Lee HazlewoodNSVIPs – Not So Very Important People (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise/1972, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 24.98
A pivotal record in the career of the great Lee Hazlewood – one that presents his personal with all its wit and warmth, yet also lets Lee take on some more mature topics as well! Most of the tunes start in the same sort of storytelling style as the album Trouble Is A Lonesome Town – but Hazlewood's a lot more tongue-in-cheek with his presentation, and directs the lyrics towards much more biting commentary – not entirely politically progressive, but definitely a larger sense of society beyond the individual. The cast of characters spin out wonderfully – the NSVIPS promised in the title – but they also tie together to present this portrait of an America just waking up in the mid 60s – able to see itself more clearly, yet without any of the overpowering emotions in years to come. That balance is Hazlewood's really special contribution to music at this point – and is given great shape here with help in the studio from Reprise Records whiz kid Jimmy Bowen. Titles include "Have You Made Any New Bombs Today", "I Ain't Gonna Be", "I Might Break Even", "Go Die Big City", "I Had A Friend", and "Everybody Calls Me Something". LP, Vinyl record album

New Jimmy HeathNice People ... LP
Riverside, 1959. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A nice little collection of some classic hard bop from Jimmy Heath, with a few of the sides of some the stuff he recorded with larger ensembles thrown in for good measure, pulled together in the 80s, once the OJC family of labels came under the Fantasy umbrella. Heath's Riverside recordings of the late 50s and early 60s is some of our favorite material on the label, recording with a soulful, hip edge and fiery hard bop energy. This collection pulls numbers from The Thumper, Really Big!, The Quota, Triple Threat, Swamp Seed and On The Trail, and feature a host of top notch players, including Nat Adderley, Curtis Fuller, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, Pat Patrick, Cannonball Adderley, Julius Watkins, Freddie Hubbard, Cedar Walton, and brothers Percy and Albert Heath. 8 tracks in all, including "Nice People", "Who Needs It?", "The Picture Of Heath", "Down Shift", "Lowland Lullaby", "Dew & Mud", "Wall To Wall" and "All The Things You Are".

An excellent early track from the guys who'd later record under the Davis Import name – stepping out here in a style that's more funky club overall! "People Of The World" has a slightly righteous message, and a nicely straightforward groove – one that's aimed right at the dancefloor, and which provides a great balance to the soaring moogy keyboard lines, and the mighty catchy lyrics! "Lookin For A Love" is nice too – same spacey keyboards at the start, but a mellower groove overall – kind of slow stepping with some great funky flute alongside the vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Includes "We're In Love", "See The Real Me", "Get Up and Move", "I Love You", "I Made a Mistake", "I Thank Heaven", "Long, Long Winter", and (of course) the famous title cuts. CD

One of the greatest albums ever from The Impressions – and a set that takes their work to a whole new level, by bringing in an even more righteous sound! The core elements of the group's 60s genius are all in place here – compositions from Curtis Mayfield, arrangements from Johnny Pate, and sublime harmonies from the group. But there's also something extra too – a new level of consciousness that's creeping into the music, hinting at the more righteous subject matter of later years – but with a much more subtle approach. All tracks are great – and titles include "See the Real Me", "Woman's Got Soul", "We're In Love", "Can't Work No Longer", and "Emotions". LP, Vinyl record album

Tremendous work from Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings – a set that took a bit longer to hit the racks than expected, but which really shows a richness that more than makes up for the delay! Sharon's a singer who's always been great – but she steps out strongly here with a sense of maturity that seems to take her vocals even farther than before – and The Dap Kings are more than ready to match her energy with some funky work of their own! Jones has gone through a lot in recent years – both with the band and in her own personal life – and the record's a proud summation of life's challenges and triumphs, served up in the instant-classic style that has made Sharon one of the greatest living soul singers of the past few decades. Bosco Mann knocked things out of the park with his raw production – and also wrote a good number of tracks on the set too – and titles include "Making Up & Breaking Up", "Long Time Wrong Time", "People Don't Get What They Deserve", "Retreat", "Stranger To My Happiness", and "Now I See".

Arista, 1981. Very Good ... $6.99
A real standout from Ray Davies and crew – heavy-hitting here with guitars that seem a bit more amped up than usual, and a slight post-punkish groove that's almost a reinvention of the group's sound for an 80s new wave market! The album's a surprisingly hard rocker in parts, and has a darkness that's a nice change from some of the late 70s Kinks material – but also shows Ray still able to come up with some more tender numbers in just the right spots.

Azar LawrencePeople Moving ... CD
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
Stellar reed work from Azar Lawrence – a player who's best known for his acoustic revival in recent years, but who could play with some excellent electric backings during the 70s! The set's less an electric funk outing than it is a spiritual jazz set, with keyboards and guitar in the mix – beautifully put together by the young Skip Scarborough, with a feel that's very similar to Gary Bartz's work with Larry Mizell! Azar's reeds are wonderful – soaring, searching, in a style that's inspired by Coltrane, but with a more direct focus – again like Bartz, or maybe a bit like Hadley Caliman too – and the record features strong work from a lineup that includes Patrice Rushen on keyboards, Lee Ritenour on guitar, Paul Jackson on bass, and Harvey Mason on drums. The whole thing's got a great Fantasy Records funk groove – and includes many nice titles like "Theme For A New Day", "Kickin Back", "Canticle For The Universe", "Gratitude", and a great take on Scarborough's "Can't Hide Love".

Johnny LytleSoulful Rebel/People & Love ... CD
Milestone/Dusty Groove, 1971/1972. New Copy ... $9.99 15.98
Two lost smokers from vibes legend Johnny Lytle – back to back on a single CD! The Soulful Rebel is lost early 70s set from Lytle – totally funky, but in a way that's very different than his famous 60s work! The album's got a sweet electric groove that comes not only from Johnny's vibes, but also from the sweet Hammond and Fender Rhodes of Billy Nunn, and the smoking guitar of David Spinozza – who really wails away here, and brings in a cutting edge to the tunes that's a lot sharper than some of his later work! Lytle's vibes are wonderful throughout – filled with that sense of space, soul, and timing that's always made him one of the grooviest players ever on the instrument – and this time around, he seems to have an even greater ear for unusual tones – in a way that makes the album sparkle strongly throughout! The rhythms are smoking, too – with Ron Carter on electric bass, Jozell Carter on funky drums, and Ray Barretto on congas – cooking things up righteously on the album's funky tunes. Highlights include the stone smoker "Gunky", a great remake of "The New Village Caller", and a reworking of "Lela" – plus the extended "Soulful Rebel Suite" – mighty nice! People & Love is one of Johnny Lytle's most righteous albums ever – a soaring, spacious set that's almost to Lytle's career what Gears was to Johnny Hammond's! Of course, Lytle's groove here is different – no Mizell production, and a mellower feel overall – but the unbridled space of 70s Milestone is definitely a key influence here – and Johnny stretches out here like never before! The players are all pretty hip – and include Daahoud Hadi (aka Butch Cornell) on electric piano and organ, Marvin Cabell on flute and tenor, Bob Cranshaw on bass, Betty Glamann on harp, and Jozell Carter on drums – all perfect mates here for Johnny's spiritual exploration of sound with his vibes – in ways that are almost more amazing than work from Bobby Hutcherson or Roy Ayers at the time! Titles include an amazing original called "Libra", plus "Tawhid", "Where Is The Love", "Family", and a version of "People Make the World Go Round". CD

There's a lot of wah wah and organ in the mix – and the lyrics are pretty righteous on most songs – almost in the sort of territory that other artists were using to cross over much bigger in the US market – a space that's somewhere between Otis Redding and Joe Cocker, but nicely rough around the edges too. Titles include "Runaway People", "Disaster Area", "That's What I Feel", and a version of "Hard Day's Night". CD

Christian McBride & Inside StraightPeople Music ... CD
Mack Avenue, 2013. New Copy ... $16.99 17.98
A great record with a really great little lineup – rock-solid players who come together wonderfully under the vision of the leader! Christian McBride's really found a way to focus his energy in recent years – and this quintet set is great proof of that – a refining of all the ideas he put forth a decade or more ago, but delivered with a lot more punch here – partly due to the album's well-chosen lineup as well. In addition to Christian on bass, the set's got stellar vibes from Warren Wolf – a player we always love – plus alto from Steve Wilson, piano from Peter Martin, and drums from Carl Allen – all working together on a set of tracks that are mostly original – and which have a soulful sparkle that really stands out. Titles include "Listen To The Heroes Cry", "Ms Angelou", "Gang Gang", "Unusual Suspects", "The Movement Revisited", and "New Hope's Angel". CD

Polydor (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $22.99
Wonderful work from the great Ellen McIllwaine! Ellen's certainly not a soul artist – but she's got a particularly soulful approach to folk rock – one that's made her a favorite of groovers worldwide in the past few decades, thanks to a big push from Gilles Peterson, and the club scene in Tokyo and Germany! The approach on this record is kind of like a mixture between Chaka Khan and Joni Mitchell – lots of upbeat grooves, mixed with jazzy acoustic guitar and some wonderfully soaring vocals – in a style that needs to be heard to be fully understood. The standout cut is the amazing "Jimmy Jean", a soaring jazzy dance cut with unbelievable vocals – and other nice ones include "Sliding", "Ain't No Two Ways", and "All To You". CD

A classic bit of tripped-out soul from Buddy Miles – put together with a lot of nice psychedelic production, and an overall sound that stays nice and deep on the bottom end of things – and lets Buddy rock out heavily on rootsy vocals. There's no real standout funky numbers, but the overall sound of the album is very much inspired by the sound of funk – as well as some of the funk/rock crossovers of the time – and titles include "Joe Tex", "Place Over There", "The Segment", "Don't Keep Me Wondering", "Sudden Stop", and "That's The Way Life Is".

Speed, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the grooviest records ever recorded – and pretty darn rare, too! The Moon People – aka Los Astronautas – were a Latin Soul studio band who played behind some of the other killer recordings on the Speed Label. They're best known for their sock-boogaloo instrumental "Land Of Love" – a stone jammer which kicks off the album – and their forte is blending together Latin rhythms, soul instrumentation, and kind of a mod 60s easy production style, handled here by maestro Morty Craft. The album's got a really really weird feel – part Latin Soul, part 60s soundtrack – almost as if Joe Cuba and Quincy Jones were hanging out together! Titles include "Land Of Love", "Morty's Harem", "Indian Soul", "Happy Soul", "Revolt", and "Last Train To Clarksville". LP, Vinyl record album

"All Of Your Life" has these monstrous funky drums on the bottom – then mixes Shirley's righteous vocals with Hanc's cool guitar solo lines – really tripped-out, almost in an Eddie Fisher way, and merged beautifully alongside the lyrics! "People Are Thinking" is even more mysterious – with an exotic, almost Eastern groove – thanks to angular reed work next to the vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New People Under The Stairs12 Step Program (165 gram translucent mixed color vinyl) ... LP
Piecelock 70, 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99 24.98
The PUTS sound as fresh as ever on 12 Step Program – their 9th album, believe it or not – and it's among their best ever! People Under The Stairs hit the their creative stride in the 90s, relying on golden age styled rhymes and production, at a time when mainstream hip hop had gotten away from head nodding beatcraft, soulful samples, and dexterously rhymed wordplay. But the PUTS never felt retro, or "throwback", thanks to their contemporaneously relevant rhymes, off-kilter use of samples, and straight-up high quality work. 12 Step Program continues their long creative win streak to say the least. Like all of their best efforts, it's built to last, and we'll be listening to it for years to come. Includes "Roundabouts", "Ste. For Reefer", "Up Til Sun Up", "Cool Story Bro", "The Strand", "LA Nights", "Get Hip", "Pictures On My Wall", "Breakup Music", "Yes I Can", "Doctor Feelgood" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Stepfather has some tracks that feel a little bit more bare bones than some of their busier beats of the past, and all the better to service the great rhymes. Another fine effort from one the most dependable acts of the past decade! Tracks include "Step In", "Pass The 40", "Pumpin'", "Flex Off", "Tuxedo Rap", "Days Like These", "Jamboree (Parts 1 & 2)", "Eat Street", "Crown Ones", "La9X", "Letter To The Old School", "More Than You Know", "4 Dollar Afro", "You", "On & On" and more.

People's ChoiceTurn Me Loose ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1978. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Although they labored for years in the Philly singles-only scene of the late 60s and early 70s, People's Choice finally got their chance to cut some full LPs during the late 70s for Philly International. By that time, the band had changed their harder funk sound into a more proto-disco sound, aimed at the dancefloor, and very much designed to capture the same sort of groove that Philly International was winning with at the time. This album's one of their better ones for the label – and although it's got some silly moments, there's a few nice uptempo soul tracks. Includes the nice mellow stepper "Soft & Tender", plus "Rough Ride", "Stay With Me", "A Greater Truth", "Your Love Stays On My Mind", and "Turn Me Loose". LP, Vinyl record album

Almost a return to basics for Airto and Flora – singing here in more of a jazzy fusion style than on some of her late 70s R&B sessions. The Concord production almost gives the album the feel of a Tania Maria set for the label – using core jazzy backings, plus some expanded instrumentation – at one minute sounding stripped down and jazzy, but at others going for some more contemporary soul styles. There's enough good tunes on here to make the album worthwhile, and help you get past the few clunkers that sort of get in the way – and titles include "Nvula Leza Kia/Humbiumbi", "Jogral", "Bad Jive", "20 Years Blue", "Shoulder", and "New Flora".

New Freddie RoachMy People (Soul People) ... LP
Prestige, 1967. Near Mint- ... $39.99
Quite an unusual album from organist Freddie Roach – and probably the most progressive record he ever made! The setting here is different than Freddie's usual small combo mode – a larger group that features tenor, soprano, trombone, and flugelhorn – and Roach doesn't just play organ, but also blows a bit of flute, and even sings some fairly political lyrics on one track! The "My People" title is echoed in the liner notes, which were written by Freddie – as they offer some strong political opinions on freedom alongside the usual comments on the tracks! There's a really righteous vibe here that opens the door towards more experimental organ albums of the 70s – particularly those of Doug Carn –a nd titles include "Prince Street", "Drunk", "My People (Soul People)", "Mas Que Nada", "Freddie", "Respectfully Yours", and "I'm On My Way".

VariousJende Ri Palenge – People Of Palenque (2CDs & DVD set) ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 2012. New Copy 2CD & DVD ... $24.99
Amazing sounds from San Basilio De Palenque – a unique cultural crossroads on the coast of Colombia! The town was the first free slave community in the Americas – a distinction it's held for centuries – and continues to have strong ties to Africa, partly because of its roots, partly because of its longtime isolation from the rest of Colombia. As a result, the music is a very unique hybrid – very heavy on traditional modes, but evolved into very different directions too – and only marginally influenced by some of the more familiar Colombian styles. The sounds here are especially rootsy – given that they were recorded as part of a documentary project, which is also included in the package – and are easily some of the deepest ethnographic recordings that Soul Jazz has ever released! The music is heavy on percussion instruments and chanting – and the collection features music by Estrellas Del Caribe, Son Malagana, Santiago Ospino, Manuela Torres, Sikito, Curramberos De Gamero, and To Ane E Lo Memo Sexteto.

Polydor, Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Volume one of the legendary compilation of James Brown produced stuff that taught us to love his other work back in the 80's when it was released. We're not going to pretend that we had all the original stuff when we were kids, but we did have this great comp – which includes monster stuff by The JBs, Lyn Collins, and Maceo. Classic JB production stuff, with 13 great tracks, including a bonus CD cut that's not on the original LP (which is out of print, by the way.) This was a sampler's dream in the 80's, and it's still a listener's dream in this decade! Tracks include "Same Beat" by the JBs, "Parrty" by Maceo, "If You Don't Get It The First Time" by the JBs, "Take Me Just As I Am" by Lyn Collins, "Rock Me Again & Again & Again & Again" by Lyn Collins, "Hot Pants Road" by The JBs, "Mama Feelgood" by Lyn Collins, "Think" by Lyn Collins, and "Gimme Some More" by The JBs!

VariousJames Brown's Funky People Part 3 ... CD
Polydor, Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Amazing – and the best yet in this legendary series! Like the other volumes, this is a collection of funky work produced by James Brown for other artists, most of it lifted from his legendary People Records imprint. However, unlike the others, or at least unlike the first volume, this volume's got some amazing stuff that almost never shows up on other reissues – and it's even got some incredible unreleased material! The whole thing's a super-heavy super-funky dip into some of the rarest James Brown-related material you can find – if you can find it at all in any other format. Titles include "Pick Up The Pieces One By One" by AABB, "There Was A Time" by Dee Felice Trio, "Doin The Do" by Bobby Byrd & The JBs, "Who Knows" by Beau Dollar, "Talkin Loud & Sayin Nothin (original rock version)" by James Brown, "Mr Hot Pants" by The Believers, "Give It Up Or Turnit Loose" by Lyn Collins (a 45-only track), "How You Gonna Get Respect?" by Hank Ballard, "Hang Out & Hustle" by Sweet Charles (a 45-only track), and "Blow Your Head (undubbed version)" by The JBs! Great stuff – and at this price, you'll be funky and rich! CD

New Chi-Lites(For God's Sake) Give More Power To The People ... LP
Brunswick, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Seminal work from one of the 70s greatest groups! The band had always been great at love songs and uptempo numbers – but this record has them moving into more righteous area, picking up on some of the more socially conscious soul of their generation that had been working its way up the charts. The album features excellent production by Chi-Lite Eugene Record, who also wrote a lot of the material – plus arrangements by Tom Tom and Sonny Sanders. Great stuff all around, with the righteous social tunes "(For God's Sake) Give More Power to The People", "Trouble's A Comin", and "We Are Neighbors" – plus classic love songs "Have You Seen Her" and "Love Uprising", which are still kind of the band's strongest point. Loads more great stuff on this one, the album that helped the second wave of Chicago soul break out into the international market! LP, Vinyl record album

New Jimmy CliffWonderful World, Beautiful People ... LP
A&M, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great early album by Jimmy – and one that was issued in the US by A&M, but was licensed from London in the UK. The production is great, and tracks mix raw rocksteady rhythms with some great arrangements that add some nice baroque touches at times, especially on the title cut, which features some very nice string parts. Titles include "Hello Sunshine", "Come Into My Life", "Hard Road To Travel", "Time Will Tell", "Many Rivers To Cross", and "My Ancestors". LP, Vinyl record album

New Eddie KendricksPeople Hold On ... LP
Tamla, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A truly amazing album – unlike anything Eddie Kendricks ever did before, or since – and one of those records that really helped shape the sound of soul in the 70s! The music is as rich and powerful as the image on the cover – with some righteous undercurrents that really mark the time and place of the record, yet also help it transcend so many other standard soul modes of the period too! Arrangements are wonderfully complex – as you'll hear on the classic groovers "Girl You Need A Change Of Mind" and "Date With The Rain" – each very different numbers, but both a showcase for Kendricks' wonderful vocal approach. Other titles include the progressive "People Hold On" – plus "I'm On The Sideline", "Day By Day", "If You Let Me", "Let Me Run Into Your Lonely Heart", and "Someday We'll Have A Better World". LP, Vinyl record album

New Lat-TeensBuena Gente/Good People ... LP
Cotique, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Good people, these Latin Teens – a very cool group that was young enough to not worry about names or labels, and who jammed in the best open-ended style of the time! As their name might imply, the group was mostly made up of kids – and as such, they had kind of a freewheeling approach to their work that made for some pretty great records. This album's their second, and it's steeped in a strong sense of the boogaloo, complete with the best Cotique Records elements like drug references, soulful vocals, silly lyrics, and other nice touches! Titles include "I Remember When", "You Are Mine", "Smoke Shop", "Soulful Thing", and "El Nuevo Swing". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Cover has a cutout hole.)

New Augusto MartelliBlack Sound From White People (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Heritage (Belgium), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
If you can forgive the title of this one, you'll find it to be a very groovy record! The album's a killer batch of funky instrumentals ("black sound") recorded in Italy in 1972 by Augusto Martelli ("white people") – and it's got the groove and swing of some of the best Italian soundtracks from the time, no surprise, as Martelli had his hand in a few from that era! The music is really great, with some excellent sax and flute work that takes the tracks into a jazzier mode than usual for this sort of thing! Loads of great percussion too – and titles include "Loco Love Motor", "Mondo No", "Krypto Blues", "Ma ne Vale La Pena", "90th Compleanno", and "Sara Stato Il Futuro". LP, Vinyl record album

New Moon PeopleLand Of Love/Revolt ... 7-inch
Speed, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 great instrumentals from this obscure Latin Soul combo! "Land Of Love" has a groove you can't even begin to imagine – all the instruments jumping up and down at once, like kids bouncing on a great big bed, while horn parts descend all over the place, laying out a weird off kilter groove! "Revolt" is a mellower tune – begins like a soul number, but then launches into a nice Latinized stepping groove, with an approach that kind of points the way towards funky early 70s LA! Louie Ramirez arranged, and Dave Baby Cortez played organ. Both sides are nice and groovy, with sort of a Latin soul vibe. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has some pen.)

Hot Cup, 2004. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The self-titled debut of Mostly Other People Do The Killing – an exciting NYC quartet that manages to both celebrate and skewer jazz traditions, blending past traditions with modern experimentalism – and also making simply exciting records that are a joyful blast! These guys have chops, dexterity and smarts – but they somehow strip all pretenses down to the bone and make viscerally enjoyable compositions. Players include bassist Moppa Elliot, trumpet from Peter Evans, Jon Irabagon on sax, and drums by Kevin Shea. Titles include "Elliot Mills", "Between Panic And Desire", "Good Intent", "Moanin", the 13+ minute "Aspers" and more. CD

A killer second album from Mostly Other People Do The Killing – drawing from an even deeper well of both jazz traditions and ragged, anything goes charm than on their excellent debut – an enthralling blend of credible chops with unpredictable playfulness! Never shy about soloing, each player in the group really put down some masterful turns on Shamokin – from fluid, well trained beauty to some unhinged, exciting bursts of noise. These do it all, and they do it very well. Titles include "Handsome Eddy", "The Hop Bottom Hop", "Shamokin", "Dunkelbergers", "Lover", "Andover", Baden" and more – plus a closing with a riveting take on "Night In Tunisia". CD

New Mostly Other People Do The KillingThis Is Our Moosic ... CD
Hot Cup, 2008. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really exciting avant jazz set from Mostly Other People Do The Killing – a killer quartet who manage to roll through a wide variety of styles that show a true depth of understanding of some of the greatest jazz of the past half century – and have a heck of great time playing it! Ostensibly a tribute to Ornette Coleman, MOPDTK do a lot more than pay homage to a master on this album. They manage to roll in and out of elements of hard and post bop, nod reverently to the international 60s avant garde scenes, and so much more – all with infectious enthusiasm. It would be mess in lesser hands, but these guys pull it off! Players include Peter Evans on trumpet, Kevin Shea on drums, Jon Irabagon on sax and Moppa Elliot on double bass. Titles include "Drainlick", "Two Boot Jacks", "Fagundus", "The Bats In Belfry", "East Orwell", "My Delightful Muse", "Allentown" and more. CD

New People Under The Stairs12 Step Program ... CD
Piecelock 70, 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The PUTS sound as fresh as ever on 12 Step Program – their 9th album, believe it or not – and it's among their best ever! People Under The Stairs hit the their creative stride in the 90s, relying on golden age styled rhymes and production, at a time when mainstream hip hop had gotten away from head nodding beatcraft, soulful samples, and dexterously rhymed wordplay. But the PUTS never felt retro, or "throwback", thanks to their contemporaneously relevant rhymes, off-kilter use of samples, and straight-up high quality work. 12 Step Program continues their long creative win streak to say the least. Like all of their best efforts, it's built to last, and we'll be listening to it for years to come. Includes "Roundabouts", "Ste. For Reefer", "Up Til Sun Up", "Cool Story Bro", "The Strand", "LA Nights", "Get Hip", "Pictures On My Wall", "Breakup Music", "Yes I Can", "Doctor Feelgood" and more. CD
