Willie NelsonIt Will Come To Pass – The Metaphysical Worlds & Poetic Introspections Of Willie Nelson ... CD
RCA/Omni (Australia), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.98
Willie Nelson without the long hair – really sounding great on a set of early recordings for RCA! That amazing voice is already very firmly in place – that sharp, raspy tone that was an instant original in country music – especially when singing Nelson's own words, which really dominate this wonderful collection – a set that, as you'd guess from the title, really highlights Willie's more contemplative nature! The whole thing's wonderfully free from any overdone country music cliches – and is a great document of this under-reissued side of Nelson's catalog – the roots that led to the superstardom of the 70s, but with a much more personal, heartfelt quality too. CD features 28 tracks in all – and titles include "Healing Hands Of Time", "Suffer In Silence", "Truth Number One", "Jimmy's Road", "Pages", "Little Things", "Blackjack County Chain", "Me & Paul", "These Are Difficult Times Remember The Good Times", "Born To Lose", "The Ghost", and "Darkness On The Face Of The Earth".

Peter NeroSalute To Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass/Screen Scene ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1966/1967. New Copy ... $16.99
A pair of obscure albums from Peter Nero – both pretty groovy! Peter Nero Plays A Salute To Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass follows on a surprisingly common genre in the 60s – an instrumental album that seeks to cash in on Herb's big work of the time – but done here with piano from Nero, instead of the usual trumpet in the lead! That switch makes for a nice change – as does Nero's own arrangements, which aren't nearly as copycat as you'd get on other Alpert tribute albums – so that the whole thing feels more like an extrapolation of A&M Records ideas, brought through the more traditional easy style of RCA. Titles include "What Now My Love", "The Lonely Bull", "Work Song", "The Mexican Shuffle", "Spanish Flea", and "A Taste Of Honey". Screen Scene is a cool set of instrumental themes from 60s films – a well-chosen selection that has Peter Nero at his most groovy – playing with a bit more left hand soul at times, and hitting some unexpectedly mod moments too! Nero handled the arrangements – and while some charts have the fullness of his own records, others are nicely compact – especially when the song calls for it. Titles include "My Favorite Things", "Help", "The Silencers", "What's New Pussycat", "Thunderball", and "Chim Chim Cheree" – plus Nero's own "The Flick". CD

New BirthBlind Baby/Comin From All Ends ... CD
RCA/Collectables, 1974/1975. Used ... $11.99
Two strong mid 70s groovers from The New Birth! Blind Baby was the band's first for the Buddah label – and it shows them taking a strong step away from their work at RCA with Harvey Fuqua. This one has the group (ever-enormous as always!) absorbing some of the other elements of modern soul that were floating around at the time – and they make a nice mark for themselves on the album's mix of ballad tracks and uptempo numbers. Titles include "Blind Man", "Blind Baby", "Dream Merchant", "Forever", "I Remember Well", and "Granddaddy" Comin From All Ends is back in the RCA groove, and features the group in that funky ensemble style they were hitting with the Nite Liters, Fuqua, and other related combos. Tracks include "Lady Love", "End to End", "I Wash My Hands of the Whole Damn Deal", "Echoes of My Mind", and the classic groover "Comin From All Ends", a nice full-on funky number that runs for about 8 minutes.

New New York Community ChoirNew York Community Choir (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1977. Used ... $8.99
A landmark album from the New York Community Choir – a gospel group at heart, but one who've ended up in plenty of 70s soul collections – thanks to the strength of this sweet little set! The vocals are tremendous – proud and righteous, with a power that's undeniable – and backed by secular soul arrangements from Leon Pendarvis – who really finds a way to focus the group's energy and push it over the top! Pendarvis is wonderful here – and the album's filled with catchy groovers that match or beat most of the mainstream soul of the time – wicked tracks that really helped push gospel to the next level, and managed to get the group plenty of secular listeners as well. The whole thing's completely sublime – filled with positive feelings and mighty grooves – and titles include "Since You Came In My Life", "Nothing Can Separate Me", "Draw Now Closer", "Tell It All", "Changed", "Have A Good Time", and "Express Yourself". CD features three bonus tracks – "Express Yourself (12" mix)", "Have A Good Time (12" mix)", and "Easy To Be Hard". CD

Nite-LitersA-Nal-Y-Sis ... CD
RCA/Dusty Groove, 1973. New Copy ... $7.99 12.99
A masterpiece of hard and heavy funk – from one of the best bands of the early 70s! The Nite Liters were a legendary funky combo that provided the backing for some of New Birth's best albums – but on their own, they were even funkier, and had a sound that was part JBs, part Meters, and all funky! This album may well be the group's best – their last for RCA, and a set that really has them honing their edge incredibly. The drums are amazing, the keyboards great, and the horns have this quality that's both complex, yet right on the money – making for a richness in sound that really sets the group apart from their contemporaries. A few singers from The New Birth provide chorus vocals on a few tracks – but most of the set is instrumental, and the record's one we'd gladly stack next to our Meters albums on Josie or JBs classics on People. Every track's a gem – and titles include "Drumology", "Excuse Me While I Do My Thing", "Serenade for a Jive Turkey", "Happy Hooker", "Craaashing", "Damn", "Pee-Foul", and a sweet cover of "Valdez in the Country" that's been sampled at least once over the years!

OdysseyHappy Together (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Big Break (UK), 1982. New Copy ... $14.99
A really nice step forward for Odyssey – a record that's a bit tighter and more electric than previous sets, but which also has a nice sort of depth as well! These guys manage to balance a love of the hook with all the right sort of touches to keep the cuts from ever being too poppy or commercial – a balance that may well come from the album's great lineup of instrumentalists – who include Gary Bartz on alto, Bobby Eli on guitar, Marcus Miller on bass, and even some help from Nile Rogers and Bernard Edwards on one track too. Titles include a surprisingly good funky soul cover of The Turtles' "Happy Together" – plus "Together", "Inside Out", "Happy People", "Love's Alright", and "Magic Touch". CD features bonus tracks – "Inside Out (single)", "Together (single)", "Magic Touch (single)", "Happy People (single)", "Inside Out (12" version)", and "Magic Touch (12" version)". CD

Os CobrasO LP ... CD
RCA (Brazil), 1964. Used ... $9.99
A landmark session of bossa jazz – about as great as you can get for the genre! This little beauty was recorded in 1964 – and it features work by some of Brazil's greatest bossa musicians of the time: Milton Banana on drums, Tenorio Jr on piano, Raulzinho on trombone, and Paulo Moura on saxes. The group's incredibly tight – and despite the individual fame of the players, they come together as a seamless unit, one in which the egos of each is put aside for the sake of the bossa grooves! Brilliant stuff throughout – and essential for any collection. Titles include "The Blues Walk", "Mar Amar", "Chao", "40 Graus", "Uganda", "Praia", "Moca Da Praia", and "Nana". CD

Anita PointerLove For What It Is (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Big Break (UK), 1987. New Copy ... $14.99
A gem of a record from Anita Pointer – a set that really helps give her some sharp focus and direction, thanks to strong production work from Preston Glass! We love Preston's later records on his own – and here, he works a bit like Kashif during that singer's years as a studio force before his solo years – crafting a really unified overall feel for the record, in contrast to so many other mixed-producer records from the time – and helping Pointer find the right sort of spaces to unfurl both her rich emotion on the ballads, and her good ear for a hook on the groovers. Titles include "Love Me Like You Do", "Overnight Success", "More Than A Memory", "Beware Of What You Want", "The Pledge", "You Don't Scare Me", and "Temporarily Blue". CD features bonus tracks – "Overnight Success (12" dance)", "Overnight Success (inst)", "Overnight Success (single)", "More Than A Memory (12" east coast mix)", "More Than A Memory (12" west coast rmx)", and "More Than A Memory (inst)".

RCA/Big Break (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $9.99
A great step into the 80s for The Pointer Sisters – a record that has them bringing in themes that are a bit more soulful than some of their previous efforts! The album's still got all the big crossover potential of their other hits – but the groove's got a solidly soulful vibe overall – plenty catchy, and with some great 80s elements bubbling underneath – more than enough to freshen up their sound, and give the trio great new territory to work through! Titles include the mega-hit "Slow Hand" – plus "Sweet Lover Man", "We're Gonna Make It", "What A Surprise", "Got To Find Love", "Fall In Love Again", "Should I Do It", and "Someday We'll Be Together". CD features bonus tracks "Someday We'll Be Together (edit)", "What A Surprise (edit)", and "Holdin Out For Love". CD

RCA, 1985. Used ... $4.99
The Pointer Sisters in their slick, sultry pop soul mode of the mid 80s – at this point doing the synthesizer soul sound as well as ever – with big hooks and more subtle stylistic flourishes in the production! The Pointers were on one heck of a commercial win streak at this point, and the memorable vocal harmonies are a big part of that, but the album as a whole stands up a whole lot better than many mid 80s mainstream R&B efforts by The Pointer Sisters and many others! Titles include "Hey You", "Twist My Arm", "Dare Me", "Freedom", "Pound Pound Pound", and "Contact". CD

Quartetto Di LuccaQuartetto (LP sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Rearward (Italy), 1962. New Copy ... $19.99
A bracingly fresh combination of vibes, piano, bass, and drums – and a real standout set of modern jazz from the Italian postwar years! At first glance, the lineup of the group is relatively conventional – forged with the same instrumentation as the Modern Jazz Quartet or George Shearing group – but from the very first note of the record, you know that the sound is something quite different indeed – a bold new musical vision, carried off perfectly! The rhythms here are especially unique – often chopped up and slightly skittish – so that the vibes and piano are often handling rhythmic duties as often as melodic ones – rolling along with the bass and drums in a set of beautiful changes and timings that explode with color and life. Players include Vito Tommaso on piano, Giovanni Tommaso on bass, Antonello Vannucchi on vibes, and Giampiero Giusti on drums – and titles include "Quartetto", "Soft Winds", "Estate 61", "Gabry", "Blues For Carole No 2", and "Like Someone In Love". CD also features 3 bonus tracks – "West Blues","Estate 58", and "Lullaby Of Birdland". CD

RCA/Kritzerland, 1944. New Copy ... $19.99
Without a doubt, one of the most famous scores to come out of Hollywood in the 40s – David Raksin's enduring soundtrack for Laura – and it's as beautiful now as ever! The theme was recorded time and time again over the next few decades – in vocal and instrumental versions, by hundreds of artists. The entire score is wonderful though – and mighty influential, too! It's lush and lovely, with noirish touches – seemingly serving as a template for so many dramatic scores to come! Includes the main title theme plus "The Phonograph", "The Cafe", "Waldo Walks Away", "Mark", "Apartment House", "The Party", "Laura Leaves", "Night" and more. This great CD version on Kritzerland includes full original score – plus the a bonus test demo fand also presents the full "Laura Suite – Theme And Variations" by Raksin, conducted by Alfred Newman, and runs over 27 minutes long!

New Evan RogersLove Games (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1985. Used ... $6.99
A pretty sweet 80s synth/pop/funk/R&B set by Evan Rogers – a few years after his time in the funky soul group Dayton (which is what we know Evan best for around here) – a mid 80s album that's heavy with the synthy sounds of the era and highlighted by some catchy songs and Evan's genuinely great voice! There's a song here called "Don't Jump To Conclusions", and that could be the unofficial motto after you see Evan's uber 80s coif and style on the cover – but this is a really fun record worth checking out! His voice is warm and genuinely soulful and the songs are insistent as can be. Includes "Hold On", a cool cover of Prince's "Private Joy" with some searing guitar as a counterweight to the electro soundscapes, "Full-Time Lover", "Sweet 16", "1-Track Mind", "Be Mine Tonight" and more. This 2011 edition from FTG has 3 bonus tracks: "Secret Love (12" Version)", "Stay Here With Me (12" Version)" and "Hold On (Remix)". CD

A wonderful album of Latin grooves from Shorty! The record is one of his best, and features a whopping array of percussionists – including Carlos Vidal, Modesto Duran, and Mike Pacheco all coming into play with Shorty's west coast style of arrangements, tweaked greatly here to pick up an Afro Cuban sound. Players include Bud Shank, Bill Holman, Frank Rosolino, Herb Geller, and Bob Cooper – and the album is very similar to Perez Prado's Voodoo Suite album, which was also recorded for RCA around the same time. Includes the cuts "Un Poco Loco", "Manteca", "Viva Puente", and the extended suite "Wuayacanjanga". CD

New Diana RossEaten Alive (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1985. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.98
Michael Jackson gave Diana Ross the big title hit for this set – a track that also features his own guest vocals too – but most of the record was handled strongly by Barry Gibb, who not only co-produced the set, but wrote most of the material as well! Ross has a strong crossover feel on the set – one that works well with Gibb's songwriting, which is often aided by other Bee Gees members too – but she also makes the record more than her own, with a confident approach to the lyrics that holds onto her own sense of personality, and keeps things from being too chartbound overall. Titles include "Eaten Alive", "Oh Teacher", "Chain Reaction", "Experience", "More & More", "I'm Watching You", "Don't Give Up On Each Other", and "Crime Of Passion". CD2 features bonus tracks – including four mixes of "Eaten Alive", three mixes of "Experience", and two mixes of "Chain Reaction". CD

Diana RossRed Hot Rhythm & Blues (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1987. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.98
An overlooked gem from Diana Ross' 80s years – a record that's quite different than her Motown music of the 60s and 70s, but in a way that really shows the singer stepping out and trying something new! The album's maybe more soulful than some of Diana's previous albums – thanks to work from producer Tom Dowd – and the material is a surprising mix of songs, from sources as varied as Leonard Cohen, Luther Vandross, and Mick Hucknall! Ross does nice a nice job in reworking older soul classics – like Jackie Ross' "Selfish One" and The Drifters' "There Goes My Baby" – nestled in nicely next to more contemporary tracks that include "Dirty Looks", "Shockwaves", "Tell Me Again", "Shine", "Summertime", and "It's Hard For Me To Say". 2CD set features nice bonus tracks – including more retro remakes on "Mr Lee", "Sweet Soul Music", and "Tell Mama" – plus four mixes of "Dirty Looks", and three remixes each of "Shockwaves" and "Mr Lee".

RCA/FTG, 1984. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.98
A surprising hit for Diana Ross – a record that really helped the singer shine brightly in the 80s, but with a vibe that's quite different than her years at Motown! The album's got plenty of star power on board – production work from Arthur Baker, Richard Perry, Daryl Hall, Lionel Richie, and Bernard Edwards – and a musical lineup that features half those artistes, plus work from Jeff Beck, Nile Rodgers, and the Brecker Brothers too! Diana's vocals aren't as over the top as during the disco years – and find a nice place to percolate within the warmer 80s grooves – mostly rhythms that have a nice sort of crossover potential, but not in a way that's as clunky or commercial as some of her contemporaries. Titles include "Missing You", "It's Your Move", "Swept Away", "Telephone", "All Of You", "Touch By Touch", "Nobody Makes Me Crazy", and "Rescue Me". CD 2 features 9 bonus tracks – different mixes of "Swept Away", "Touch By Touch", "Missing You", and "Telephone" – plus the 7" version of "Fight For It". CD

George RussellJazz Workshop ... CD
RCA/Koch, 1956. Used ... $13.99
Very hip early work from George Russell – a set that's maybe not as high-concept as some of his later records, but which still has a strikingly modern vibe! Russell's trying out some of his new tonal ideas here – and has a group that's very well-chosen for the project – with Art Farmer on trumpet, Hal McKusick on alto, Bill Evans on piano, and Barry Galbraith on guitar – all players with just the right sort of color in their tone, able to illustrate George's ideas but still bring a bit of personality to the mix as well. Titles are mostly originals, written with slight touches of whimsy, but less of the indulgence on that front as you'd hear on west coast material – and tracks include "Witch Hunt", "The Sad Sargeant", "Ballad Of Hix Blewitt", "Knights of The Steamtable", "Jack's Blues", and "Night Sound".

New Tony ScottTouch Of Tony Scott ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $13.99
Early work from reedman Tony Scott – recorded in the years when he was much more of a regular on the New York scene – before he started working in trippier styles for the 60s! The album features Scott in a host of different settings – from quartet, to tentet, to orchestra grooving – in a mix of modes that embraces both modern jazz inventions and some of the previous styles of the swing generation – both of which Scott handles very well on clarinet, with the same sort of generation-spanning confidence you'd get from Buddy DeFranco at the same time. Bill Evans plays piano on most tracks – a notable early date as a sideman, and one of his excellent pairings with Scott – and Gigi Gryce plays alto on some of the large group tracks. Originals mix with standards in the lineup – and titles include "Vanilla Frosting On A Beef Pie", "Poinciana", "Walkin On Air", "Round Midnight", "My Old Flame", "Moon Walks", and "Rock Me But Don't Roll Me".

ShirellesHappy & In Love/The Shirelles (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1971/1972. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Two albums and bonus tracks too – all rare material from an overlooked chapter of The Shirelles' career! First up is Happy & In Love, a great second chapter for The Shirelles – hardly the girl group pop they cut in the 60s, and instead a more righteous soul style for the 70s – in a mode that's like Honey Cone or Three Degrees! The backings are nice and soulful – almost funky at times – with arrangements from George Andrews and Joe Scott that mix fuller strings with tighter grooves at the core – in a way that really sets the vocals free amidst some very interesting material! Had the girls only cut this record, it might have been a 70s soul hit – but it's unfortunately gotten lost to the shifting sands of time because it's not as iconic as their hits. Don't make that mistake, though, because the album's a real charmer – and titles include "Boy You're Too Young", "There's Nothing In This World", "It's Gonna Take A Miracle", "Take Me", "We Got A Lot Of Lovin To Do", and "Strange I Still Love You". The 1972 album The Shirelles is surprisingly great later work by The Shirelles – nice and soulful, thanks to arrangements from David Van De Pitte and Wade Marcus – both of whom push the trio way past their roots, into more sophisticated group soul for the 70s! The approach carries the best (then) contemporary styles from New York and Philly – particularly that strong way of mixing group vocals with focused grooves – as you'd hear from some of the more successful male groups of the time on RCA, like Main Ingredient or Choice Four. The Shirelles have a strong sense of harmony that really pushes the tunes forward – and the material is nice and creative – with titles that include "Walk On In", "Brother Brother", "Sunday Dreaming", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Let's Stay Together", "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart", and "Drowning In The Sea Of Love". CD also features bonus tracks – "Let's Give Each Other Love", "Do What You've A Mind To", and "Touch The Wind". CD

One of the weirdest records ever from Shel Silverstein – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given what a weirdo he is! The set was recorded hot on the heels of the big Johnny Cash recording of "Boy Named Sue" – and it features Shel singing that famous tune, plus a host of other original country material – all of which is quite different than the usual songs coming from Nashville in the 60s! Production was done by Chet Atkins – who must have flipped a wig recording this one – and Shel's raspy, nasally voice is surprisingly at home in the professional Nashville backings. The record's a great leftfield country relic from the 60s – and titles include "Boy Named Sue", "Dirty Ol Me", "Alimoney", "Someday's Here", "Time", "Comin After Jinny", and "Daylight Dreamer". CD

Nina SimoneEmergency Ward!/It Is Finished/Black Gold ... CD
RCA (Germany), 1970/1972/1974. Used 2CD ... $9.99
3 great Nina records collected together in one package! Emergency Ward is a great little album cut by Nina Simone during the time she was working with Weldon Irvine. The record features 4 long tracks, all cut live in concert, and with large arrangements done by Weldon, and lots of improvising on lyrics by Nina Simone. Includes a haunting version of "My Sweet Lord", the classic "Poppies", and a great poem/song called "Today Is A Killer". It Is Finished was the kind of record that once made purists turn up their noses, but which is now being rediscovered as a unique jazz/soul crossover album, filled with loads of nice moments! The instrumentation's pretty darn interesting – and includes sitar, harp, Spanish guitar, and other odd percussion instruments. Includes Nina's nice version of "Funkier Than a Mosquito's Tweeter", plus "I Want A Little Sugar In My Bowl", "Dambala", "Obeah Woman", and "The Pusher". Black Gold was one of the excellent LPs she cut with the Stroud Productions imprint during the early 70s. The style here is even hipper than her late 60s work on Philips – with a mixture of open-ended jazz and soul that's best summed up in the album's extended reading of "Black is the Color of My True Love's Hair", and a great version of "To Be Young Gifted & Black", which was written by Weldon Irvine, who's probably playing piano here with Nina. 18 tracks on 2 CDs!

Tamba TrioTamba Trio (1975) ... CD
RCA (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $8.99
A mid 70s gem from the Tamba Trio! The record takes their core 60s sound of piano trio grooving and bossa harmony vocals, and gives it a strong 70s twist – with mellow production that flanges the style out a bit more, and arrangements that add in some extra instrumentation from the likes of Helio Delmiro, Ivan Lins, Toninho Horta, Danilo Caymmi, and Joao Bosco – each of whom play a bit of guitar on the record, the last of whom also sings a bit of guest vocals too! Luiz Eca handled the arrangements, all with that subtle sense of sophistication that we've always loved in the group – even more mature here than in the 60s, and with a sound that's totally great. Titles include "3 Horas Da Manha", "Visgo De Jaca", "Beira Mar", "Chorinho No 1", "Jogo Da Vida", "Sanguessuga", and "Beijo Partido". CD

Leon ThomasBlues & The Soulful Truth ... CD
Flying Dutchman/RCA (France), 1972. Used ... $13.99
Leon Thomas takes his vocals to new heights – moving past the straight spiritual jazz modes of his work with Pharoah Sanders, to embrace a whole host of new styles too! There's a slight trace of the blues promised in the title, but always inflected through a more soulful approach overall – thanks to backings arranged by Pee Wee Ellis – known best for his work with the James Brown band of the late 60s! Pee Wee handles reed solos on the tunes, and the group also features some great work on keyboards from Neal Creque – from Pucho's band – plus some guitar from Cornell Dupree and Larry Coryell. Yet Thomas is clearly the main attraction – sounding beautifully expressive at that level that no other jazz singer could ever hope to touch – that genre-starting style that continues to amaze us after all these years. Titles include the classic "China Doll" – plus "Love Each Other", "Boom Boom Boom", "Gypsy Queen", and "Shape Your Mind To Die". CD

RCA (Japan), 1983. Used ... $26.99
Slammin' 80s groove material from Fonzi Thornton – a bit dated, perhaps, but sparkling with the best of its generation! Fonzi's vocals are less the strong part of the album than are the tight arrangements that mix together bass riffing, keyboards, and a smooth approach to the groove that makes most of the tracks pretty darn infectious. Titles include "The Leader", "There Goes My Heart", "Sha N Da (Happy Love Song)", "Beverly", "Be My Baby", "Perfect Lover", and "Sayin Goodbye". CD

ToomorrowToomorrow ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1970. New Copy ... $11.99
That's "Toomorrow", not "tomorrow" – a pretty wild sci-fi musical from the start of the 70s – and one that features this very groovy group! The quartet features some vocals by a young Olivia Newton John – but it's the instrumentation here that really sends us – kind of a pop soundtrack presentation of psych modes, which often comes off with a lot more mod easy touches than you might expect! Hugo Montenegro wrote one tune for the record, but the rest of the material still has instrumentation and a feel that's very much in that spirit – almost the kind of rock songs on the Barbarella or Get Carter soundtracks from the same generation. Larger charts inflect the core sounds with some wonderful soundtrack-y elements – and some of the best tunes here are the instrumentals, including one very nice moogy track! Titles include "Toomorrow", "Walkin On Air", "Spaceport", "Let's Move On", "If You Can't Be Hurt", "Goin Back", and "You're My Baby". CD

Piero UmilianiDa Roma A New York ... CD
RCA/Rearward (Italy), 1957. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
One of the first great moments from Italian composer Piero Umiliani – an artist who later did a huge amount of soundtracks in the 60s, but really got his start in jazz! Umiliani's wonderful here right from the start – laying out a set of all original tracks that mix tight arrangements with strong breakout solos – a mode that's clearly inspired by the California scene of the early 50s, but which already shows Piero's own sense of timing and color throughout. Musicians include Eraldo Volonte on tenor, Sandro Bagalini on baritone, Giulio Libano on trumpet, Gil Cuppini on drums, and Piero himself on piano – and the vibe is like some of the best European jazz soundtracks of the time – with perhaps a bit less hardbop than the French new wave scores. Titles include "Da Roma A New York", "Blues For Toni Sciacca", "I Sette Peccati", "Sic Et Simpliciter", "Aria Di Danza", and "Vasi A Samo". CD

Piero UmilianiSmog – Musiche Dalla Colonna Sonora Originale ... CD
RCA/Rearward (Italy), Early 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
An early jazzy soundtrack from the great Piero Umiliani – made even better by some key work from Chet Baker on trumpet and Helen Merrill on vocals! The set was done at a time when both artists were spending some time in Italy – shaping the scene with their presence, and really standing out on a handful of rare recordings like this one – quite different than their American material of a few years before! Baker is especially striking – with lead solos that have a great sense of compression, and a depth of soul that really move beyond the Pacific Jazz recordings. And Merrill is wonderful, too – with that special flavor she only ever seemed to open up when she went overseas – and got to move into more unusual settings. But the real star is Umiliani throughout – balancing modern impulses with late night jazz in a way that really points the way towards his later scores in the 60s – but which is already nearly perfect here! Titles include "Smog" (done in instrumental and vocal versions by Baker and Merrill), plus "Dawn", "Tensione", "Tops", "California In The Summer", "Hollywood Tonight", "Bowling", and "Twilight At Los Angeles".

Barney WilenBarney (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the most classic albums ever from tenorist Barney Wilen – recorded at a time when he was making big waves on both sides of the Atlantic! The tracks are longer than on some of Wilen's more tightly-arranged albums – which really gives Barney a chance to show off his tremendous solo talent at this early stage – a soulful depth that easily made him one of the best European jazz artists of the time! As with some of Wilen's other gems from the period, the set also features key work from American players who admired his strengths – including Kenny Dorham on trumpet and Duke Jordan on piano – with rhythm from French players Paul Rovere on bass and Daniel Humair on drums. Titles include a classic reading of "Besame Mucho", plus "Lady Bird", "Jordu", and "Stablemates". CD also features 4 previously unissued titles – "Lotus Blossom", "I'll Remember April", "Temoin Dans La Ville", and "Everything Happens To Me". CD

Like the Barney album, these tracks are fantastic – some of the most open-ended playing that Wilen ever did in the 50s, and proof that his tenor work was some of the best jazz coming out of Europe in the postwar years! All tracks are long – and titles include "Reets & I", "The Best Things In Life Are Free", "All The Things You Are", "Round Midnight", and "Time On My Hands". CD

New Esther WilliamsInside Of Me ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1981. Used ... $12.99
A killer batch of clubby soul from Esther Williams with a great New York sound! Inside Of Me a perfect example of the kind of excellent material that verges on disco, but which still keeps things pretty darn soulful. Released in '81, it's steeped in the warm, timeless and beautifully well produced style of the mid-to-late 70s rather than latching on to the electronics and programming that were soon to revolutionize the scene. The album doesn't include her breakbeat classic "Last Night Changed It All", but that's just about the only thing it lacks! Titles include "I'll Be Your Pleasure" (remixed by Larry Levan), "You Can Have It All", "You Can Use It", "Who Said It Was Wrong", "Ready For Love", and "Make It With You". CD

Michael WycoffCome To My World/On The Line ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1980/1983. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
A killer double-header – two early 80s classics from the great Michael Wycoff! Come To My World is a beautiful set from Michael Wycoff – a perfect example of the kind of sophisticated groove he had right from the start of his legendary run on RCA – the kind of vibe that maybe kept Wycoff off the charts at the time, but which has made him a favorite on the underground scene for years! Keyboards play a big part in the sound – especially Fender Rhodes from Webster Lewis – and Wycoff's got a voice that sometimes goes for the wide, far range of DJ Rogers, but also can really glide along with the keys as well, a bit like Stevie Wonder! Titles include "One Alone", "Do Ya Think", "Feel My Love", "Soneone Standing By", and "Just As Long". On The Line is sparkling early 80s soul groove from Michael Wycoff – working here with Webster Lewis on keys and in the production booth – in a pumped up mode that's different from Wycoff's earlier albums! Wycoff's getting a new sound here – the bass groove at the core is tight and thumping, and the overall sound is really crisp – with Michael's emotive vocals always at the forefront. Lewis' keyboards sound as great as they always do – balancing perfectly between jazz and soul, vamping and comping to push Wycoff's vocals into new territory – and his production touches are as balanced as the playing. There's some sweet female backing vocals on a few tune, some groovy pop funk touches, and subtle string arrangements by Lewis – which feature Dorothy Ashby's harp. About half the cuts are in a slower ballad mode, but the groovers are the thing here! Titles include "On The Line", "There's No Easy Way", "So Close", "You've Got It Coming", "Tell Me Love", "I'll Do Anything For You" and "Do It To Me Baby". CD

Chucho Zarzosa Y Su ConjuntoConcierto En Jazz (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
RCA/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $24.99
A live set from this obscure Mexican jazz combo – recorded in the early 60s, in a mode that's kind of a small combo take on an Ellington sound, but with some freer twists too! The approach is nicely offbeat – starting out familiar at first, but then opening up with some offbeat elements that come partly from the group's phrasing, and partly from the way the whole thing's put together – all of which makes for a great little record that goes way past the usual! Pianist Chucho Zarzosa heads of the group – playing an odd-toned instrument with a lot of charm – and other players include Pepe Solis on trumpet, Rodolfo Sanchez on baritone and alto, Mario Ballina on bass, and Felix Agueros on drums – working together nicely on the album's four long tracks. Sanchez is especially nice – with an unusual tone that really comes through on the album's extended version of "Peter Gunn", which features him blowing oddly and in lots of curvy ways – and other tracks include "Perdido", "My Funny Valentine", and "Take the A Train".

RCA/Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $19.99 28.98
Pre-rock gems from the RCA catalog of the 50s – music that might have been western swing a few years before, or rockabilly a few years later – but which instead falls into a great space of electric 50s honky tonk and country! The package is heavy on historical details – including session information, photos, and bios of each artist – which is a great contrast to some of the bare-bones sets of this nature – and the set list and presentation take off from a well-remembered compilation on the London scene many years back. Titles include "I Need A Good Girl Bad" by Wade Ray, "Love Me To Pieces" by Janis Martin, "Beatin Out The Boogie" by Lee Bell, "Moblin Baby Of Mine" by Eddie Marshall, "Walkin The Chalk Line" by Jack Turner, "You Ain't Seen Nothin Yet" by Curtis Gordon, "Is It True" by Melvin Endsley, "Rock A Bye Boogie" by Davis Sisters, and "Caffeine & Nicotine" by Curtis Gordon.

RCA, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 60CD ... $110.99 125.98
A treasure trove of work from one of the greatest runs of classical music ever recorded – packaged here in a totally sweet set! Like the first limited volume in this series, this second one features a heavy cube that contains 60 classic albums in the RCA Living Stereo series packaged in tiny LP-style covers – plus a full booklet of notes on all the music, and wonderful sound throughout! RCA really helped pioneer the use of stereo in classical music – and these 60 albums really showcase not only the best technical side of the label, but also its amazing ear for talent and composition – which made for a legacy that few other companies could ever hope to match. Works include Beethoven Piano Concertos 1 through 5 by Arthur Rubinstein with Josef Krips, Tchaikovsky Symphonies 4 through 6 by Pierre Monteux, Guiliani/Arnold Guitar Concertos by Julian Bream, Schubert Piano Sonata in D Major by Emil Gilels, Prokofieff's Alexander Nevsky by Fritz Reiner, Beethoven and Schubert Trios by Heifetz/Primrose/Piatigorsky, Mahler Symphony 1 by Erich Leinsdorf, Dvorak Symphony 4 by Charles Munch, Beethoven's Symphonies 1 and 9 by Fritz Reiner, and seminal recordings of Berlioz' Romeo & Juliet, Verdi's Requiem, Bach's Mass in B Minor, and Rossini's Barber Of Seville.

RCA/Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $19.99 28.98
Cool cuts from the early 50s years of country music – material that follows in the wake of Pee Wee King's popular work, and which mixes equal parts honky tonk, western swing, and some pre-rock use of electric guitar! The rhythms are strong throughout – romping and very groovy – and the lyrics often follow suit, too – with all the best playful energy that RCA brought to its excellent country catalog at the time. King's featured in a number of tracks here, but the real treats are some of the lesser-known artists – who really illuminate our understanding of these 50s country years – and as usual, Bear Family have included plenty of notes and session details to enrich our knowledge of the scene. Titles include "Hadacol Boogie" by Jesse Rogers & His 49'ers, "You Played On My Piano" by Hank Penny, "Waxahachie Dishwasher Boy" by Jim Boyd & His Men Of The West, "Jaw Jaw Yap Yap Yap" by Texas Jim Robertson & His Panhandle Punchers, "I Feel Like The Blues Comin On" by Elton Britt, "Old McDonald's Boogie" by Johnny Tyler & His Riders Of The Rio Grande, "Seven Come Eleven" by Pee Wee King, and "Honey Honey Mine" by Hal Lone Pine & His Mountaineers.

New Basso Valdambrini SextetSestetto Basso Valdambrini – The Best Modern Jazz In Italy 1962 ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A really landmark album in European jazz – one of those records that always tops the lists of collectors, and for good reason too! The sextet of trumpeter Oscar Valdambrini and tenorist Gianni Basso was easily one of the greatest things going in jazz on that side of the Atlantic in the early 60s – a fresh, modern group who could still play with plenty of soul – avoiding some of the cool jazz traps of other European combos, and really hitting hard with solo work that matched the best American work of the time. The sound here is really incredible – tunes that bristle with electricity from the very first note, played with a cohesiveness that makes the record far more than just a happy accident in the studio! Titles include the originals "Coltrane Style" and "Monotonia", plus versions of Jackie McLean's "Dr Jackle", Junior Mance's "Jubilation", and Benny Golson's "Are You Real". CD

New Gary BurtonGenuine Tong Funeral ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
One of the most ambitious projects ever from vibist Gary Burton – an extended piece written by Carla Bley – and billed as "A Dark Opera Without Words"! The work has a feel that's much more fluid than opera, though – and is a great instrumental outing that not only features Gary's vibes at their youthful best, with support from his quartet – but which also includes extra work from Steve Lacy on soprano sax, Gato Barbieri on tenor, and Carla Bley herself on piano. The music is never too far out, but with angular tones and strange time changes that mark the record as being quite different from Gary's other sides for RCA. It also makes the record one of his best, too – as the set has that wonderfully fresh sound that you get from early work by Bley – never too silly, and with a serious approach to composition that also never loses sight of its roots in jazz. Titles include "The New Funeral March", "Silent Spring", "Mother Of The Dead Man", "Death Rolls", and "The New National Anthem". CD

New Jimmy CastorIt's Just Begun/Phase Two ... CD
RCA/Robinsongs (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A pair of classics from the Jimmy Castor Bunch – back to back on a single CD! It's Just Begun is wickedly fuzzy funk! Jimmy Castor recorded in a lot of different styles during the 70s – but the one he used on this album is still his best! The record's a non-stop guitar-heavy batch of classic funk tracks – and it features the storming break track "It's Just Begun", the funky goofy "Troglodyte", and plenty other nice moments like "Bad", "LTD", "I Promise To Remember", and "Psychee". Fuzzy guitar meets heavy drums meets some of the most insane lyrics ever on a mainstream funk album! One of our most requested records – and for good reason! Phase Two is probably Jimmy's second best album of the 70s – one with many of the same elements as his legendary It's Just Begun record! The band is grooving hard – with plenty of heavy conga, fuzzed out guitar, and trippy grooves that serve as a perfect foil for Jimmy's super-dope sense of humor. The record features a remake of Jimmy's earlier "Hey Leroy", still done with a Latiny groove, but also with many elements of "It's Just Begun" thrown into the funky mix. The album also features Jimmy's guitar-heavy "Tribute To Jim [Hendrix]", and "Luther The Anthropoid", which was a follow-up to "Troglodyte", with similar stoner caveman lyrics! Another tasty cut is "Party Life", a 7 minute Latin funk number with a very War-like groove! CD

Flying Dutchman/RCA, 1971/1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 of Gato Barbieri's greatest albums of the 70s – back to back on one CD! Bolivia is one of Gato's better albums from the early 70s – and like a lot of his Latin-themed ones, a swirling mix of soulful soloing, modal grooves, and unbridled emotion. Lonnie Liston Smith is playing piano on most cuts, and he's a perfect blend for Barbieri's horn – giving it the same sort of soulful base as in his classic recordings with Pharoah Sanders. Titles include "Merceditas", "Eclypse", "Bolivia", and "Vidala Triste". Under Fire is filled with Latin rhythm influences forged on Gato's Impulse sessions of the same time, plus some nice spiritual blowing in the Pharoah Sanders tradition in which he was linked in the immediate post-Coltrane years. Airto and Mtume are on percussion on most tracks, and Lonnie Liston Smith plays some pretty outside piano on the set. All tracks are long, and titles include "El Parana", "Antonico", "El Sertao", and "Maria Domingas". CD

The Thin White Duke turns to the east – and gets a whole new sound with help from Brian Eno! The album is an amazing departure from some of David Bowie's previous work – a set that's sparer, more spacious, and which is often instrumental – quite a statement, given Bowie's reputation as a songwriter at the time! It's almost like Bowie's shaking off all the confused stardom of the previous parts of the 70s – and is stepping forward as a new being from a new space – cleaner, leaner, and simpler than before – but hardly evacuated of soul at all, certainly not as much as you might guess from the Man Who Fell To Earth image on the cover. Titles include "Speed Of Life", "Be My Wife", "A New Career In A New Town", "Warsawza", "Art Decade", "Weeping Wall", and "Sound & Vision". CD

The session was recorded at the same vintage as Sam Cooke At The Copa – another live record that was issued during the 60s, and which some claim caused the repression of this one, a much livelier, harder, and soulful session, recorded way uptown, at the Harlem Square Club. The Sam you hear here is a much harder soul artist than the one at the Copa – working his way through some great versions of tracks that include "Cupid", "Chain Gang", "Feel It", "Bring It On Home To Me", and "Nothing Can Change This Love".

RCA, Late 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest club combos of the 70s – the mighty Dr Buzzard's Original Savannah Band – a group with a sound that's a lot tighter than their name! The group's probably best known for giving exposure to August Darnell in his pre-Kid Creole years – but they've also got a sound that's really all their own, and which draws strongly from all members of the group – making them way more than just another Darnell side project. Old and new styles come together wonderfully in the band's music – but the approach isn't just easy retro disco, and instead is often a warmer take on mainstream 70s disco modes – one that dips into the past to pull back the right elements to bring a bit more life to the sound. Arrangements are mostly by Stony Browder Jr, who co-wrote most of the tunes – and titles include "The Gigolo & I", "You Got Something/Betcha The Love Bug Bitcha", "Transistor Madness/Future DJ", "Cherchez La Femme/Se Si Bon", "Mister Love", "Sunshower", "Nocturnal Interludes", "Soraya/March Of The Nignies", "Auf Wiedersehen/Darrio", "I'll Play The Fool", and "Hard Times".

Jive, 1989. Used ... $4.99
Classic Boogie Down Productions circa '89 – with prime street poetry from KRS and those raw beats and absolute prime end of the 80s production! Blueprint is an apt title for a couple reasons – the beats aren't what we'd call spare, but they're raw and unvarnished – a perfect framework for KRS's clear, consise and tough rhymes. It's also the blueprint for some of the best, tough and street aware hip hop to come. Includes "Jack Of Spades", "The Blueprint", "You Must Learn", "Who Protects Us From You?", "Why Is That?", "Breath Control", and "Bo! Bo! Bo!". CD

Jimmy CastorE-Man Groovin ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
Jimmy Castor's looking mighty butch on the cover of this one – what with the leather and motorcycle in the photo – and he's bringing all that energy to play strongly on the album's heavy heavy funk tracks! The record's a great extension of the funky style that Castor first started forging at RCA – touches with plenty of Jimmy's multi-instrumental touches on tenor, alto, and timbales – and given that great monster-inspired approach to lyrics – which ensures that the whole thing stays plenty vivid throughout! Vocals are nice and rough, and the instrumentation is heavy on basslines and clavinet – on titles that include the two part "Dracula", plus "Super Love", "I Love A Mellow Groove", "E Man Groovin", "I Don't Want To Lose You", and "Space Age".

Nelson Cavaquinho, Candeia, Guilherme De BritoQuatro Grandes Do Samba ... CD
Sony (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $8.99
A beautiful album of samba tracks – recorded with a warm intimacy that really gets at the talents of the group! Four samba giants – Nelson Cavaquinho, Cadeia, Guilherme De Brito, and Elto Medeiros – join forces in this 1977 session recorded for RCA Brazil. The vocal stylings of the artists are shifted from track to track – so that most numbers feature one of the quartet stepping out as a lead vocalist, with accompaniment by the others – which makes for a very collaborative, almost spontaneous sort of feel – just the right setting for these legends of the genre. Titles include "Sem Ilusao", "Noticia", "Amor Perfeito", "Nao E So Voce", "A Vida", "Sou Mais O Samba", and "Gotas De Luar". CD

A great set of modern soul Rhonda Clark – one that really should have catapulted to super-stardom in the late 80s! Rhonda has the goods here – crisp, modern productions that are as strong as any R&B circa '89 – a diverse, attractive voice and a bunch of great songs. We can't fathom why it didn't top the charts at the time, but it's really strong stuff! Between Friends has production on Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis on the masterful single "State Of Attraction"– and their on board as musicians on some other tracks, too – with production by Randy Ran, Chuck Howard and Jellybean Johnson.

Sam CookeTribute To The Lady ... CD
Keen/Andex (Spain), 1959. Used ... $14.99
An early gem from the great Sam Cooke – a pre-RCA session, but one that already has Sam showing a stronger jazzy side of his talents – as you might guess from the title! The Lady, in this case, is the late Billie Holiday – recently passed at the time of this recording, and lovingly paid tribute to by a young Sam Cooke – with vocals that have a perfect blend of sweet and raspy to really unlock the tension in Holiday's music – yet also deliver the sound with a much different vibe overall. The set's a great example of how strongly Cooke could sing in a sophisticated jazzy style – and he does a great job with Holiday standards like "God Bless The Child", "Solitude", "Lover Girl", and "They Can't Take That Away From Me". Rene Hall did the orchestrations – and the album's an interesting example of how Cooke, like Holiday, could work within conventional forms to work a subtly progressive agenda! CD

George Duning/Henry ManciniDear Brigitte/Mr Hobbs Takes A Vacation (with bonus tracks) ... CD
20th Century/Kritzerland, 1962/1965. New Copy ... $19.99
Two different Jimmy Stewart comedy soundtracks from the 60s – both of them nice! First up is Dear Brigitte – an overlooked 1965 score by George Duning – done with a mix of the playful modes you'd expect from the story, and some of those great deeper dramatic touches that Duning used in more serious soundtracks – a really rich mixing of modes with a sound that's much stronger than we expected! Titles include "On To BBs", "The Captain", "Magical Moment", "Puzzled Cap'n", "Hey Dad", "Is It A Trick", and "She Sank". Next is an even groovier record – a rare non RCA Henry Mancini soundtrack from the early 60s – the score to Mr Hobbs Takes A Vacation, done with all the best mix of jazz and groovy elements we love in classic Mancini! Instrumentation mixes a key electric guitar melody with some lighter touches on woodwinds – really getting the most out of the melody with some shifts in timing and tone, juxtaposed with a few numbers that are even more playful! Titles include "Barn Swallow", "Something For Lauri", "Cream Puff", "Up His Nose", "A Month Off", and "Rudders & Sails". CD features 39 tracks in all – including 7 bonus tracks from the Mancini score! CD

Donnie & Joe EmersonStill Dreamin Wild – The Lost Recordings 1979 to 1981 ... CD
Light In The Attic, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy Gatefold ... $11.99 14.98
Rare work from the team of Donnie & Joe Emerson – first brought to light on their obscure outsider album Dreamin Wild – and here featured in a host of previously unreleased tracks! The vibe of the music follows in the same spirit as the duo's few released recordings – kind of a blue-eyed soul style with echoes of Hall and Oates or some of the hipper AOR artists of the LA scene of the 70s – but captured with an honest, earnest innocence because of the more stripped-down recording style – which almost makes the whole thing feel like you've stumbled across a lost stash of demo tapes from ABC Records, circa 1976. Lots of polymoog keys mix with Donnie's lead vocals and guitar lines – never too slick, but always a bit dreamy. Titles include "Big Money", "Ooh Baby Yeah", "Stand By Love", "Don't Disguise The Way You Feel", "Everybody Knows It", "Ride The Tide", "Don't Fight", and "One True Love". CD

Flying LotusUntil The Quiet Comes ... CD
Warp, 2012. New Copy ... $14.99
The best yet from Flying Lotus – who we keep allowing ourselves to believe has hit an insurmountable peak with each new record – but he just keeps getting better! Where the preceding Cosmogramma upped the stranger, spacier and more abstract textures, Until The Quiet Comes is a bit more inviting – and to his credit, Flying Lotus keeps things as innovative as ever, while still giving this one just a bit more immediately appealing atmosphere. There's nearly always a compelling beat, whether it's abstract boom bap or bubbly and synthy, with heavy bass and thick waves of sound floating over. An incredible roster of guests contribute, too – including string-arranger Miguel Atwood Ferguson, vocalists Erykah Badu, Laura Darlington and Radiohead's Thom Yorke, keyboardist Dorian Concept, and others – but there's little doubt that this is purely the Flying Lotus show. Greatness! Titles include "All In", "Sultan's Request", "See Thru To U" with Erykah Badu, "DMT Song" with Thundercat, "The Nightcaller", "Only If You Wanna", "Electric Candyman" with Thom Yorke, "Hunger" with Niki Randa, "Phantasm" with Laura Darlington, "Dream To Me" and more.

Warp, 2014. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Flying Lotus is not only very much alive on You're Dead! – he's as lively as ever – delivering his best, most diverse record to date! The Flying Lotus sound is in peak form here – glitchy beats and spacey keyboards, deftly layered samples, and carrying boundless influences from cosmic soul jazz to leftfield hip hop! An impressive guest roster from both realms participate – with appearances by Herbie Hancock (!!!), Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, frequent collaborator and stylistic sibling Thundercat, strings arranger Miguel Atwood Ferguson and others. Standout moments include the tracks "Tesla" and "Moment Of Hesitation", both with some incredible keyboards by Herbie Hancock, plus the uber-moody, Ennio Morricone-sampled "Turtles" – but the whole thing is great, and shows that the Flying Lotus phenomenon is still in ascension, circa 2014. Other cuts include "Cold Dead", "Never Catch Me" with Kendrick Lamar, "Dead Man's Tetris" with Snoop Dogg, "Turkey Dog Coma", "Stirring", "Obligatory Cadence", "The Protest" and more. CD

New Roberto GerhardElectronic Explorations From His Studio & The BBC Radiophonic Workshop – 1958 to 1967 ... CD
Sub Rosa (Belgium), Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $15.99
Groundbreaking work from Roberto Gerhard – a composer born in Spain, but who created some amazing electronic sounds in the British scene of the 50s and 60s – easily some of the first and most important electronic music to come from the UK! Gerhard was a key member of the newly-formed BBC Radiophonic Workshop – which would go onto record even more famously in the 60s – and even in these early works, he's creating sounds that rival the best of the German and French musique concrete artists of the time – really striking passages that include "Audiomobile In The Manner Of Goya", "Audiomobiles 2 – DNA In Reflection", "Caligula", and the extended "Lament For The Death Of A Bullfighter", which features the recitation of a poem by Federico Garcia Lorca.

Garland GreenVery Best Of Garland Green – 24 Tracks From Chicago's Master Soul Singer's Illustrious Career ... CD
Kent (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $14.99
A windy city hero – the amazing Garland Green, a singer who makes us mighty proud we hail from Chicago! Garland's got an incredible style that few others can touch – partly schooled in the 60s iceman modes of Jerry Butler and Walter Jackson, with all the sophistication that might imply – but also often given a raspier twist, with slightly southern echoes that make Garland's music feel even more deeply personal! And while most folks know Green's big hits for the Uni label, this package shows a rich legacy that goes much father than that – work recorded for labels that include Cotillion, Spring, RCA, Ocean Front, and Revue – in addition to some key Uni tracks. This trans-label set really does a wonderful job of showing the full range of Garland's mighty talents – a sublime set of soul cuts that run from the start of the 70s right up to the early 80s modern years – packaged with detailed notes too. Titles include "Since You've Been Gone", "These Arms", "Just Loving You", "Just My Way Of Loving You", "He Didn't Know", "Don't Think That I'm A Violent Guy", "Love's Calling", "Just What The Doctor Ordered", "Sweet Loving Woman", "Ask Me What You Want", "You Played On A Player", "Don't Let Love Walk Out On Us", and "Sending My Best Wishes".

A catchy slice of mid 80s soul from Randy Hall – an excellent musician who handles quite a bit of the instrumentation, on top of being a charismatic singer – and this one's produced by Ray Parker Jr, whose ear for catchy hooks is in top form! Hall spins a lot of plates on his own – most of the vocals, some guitar, bass, keys and programming – but there's a lot of other great players in the studio, including producer Parker – and that dedication to real musicianship puts I Belong To You on higher level than a lot of pop soul, circa '84! Great stuff! Includes "I've Been Watching You (Jamie's Girl)", "A Gentleman", "Feel My Eyes", "She's My Little Star", 'I Want To Touch You", "I Belong To You", "A Real Man" and more. CD
