New Eric DolphyIron Man ... CD
Douglas/Fuel 2000, 1962. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A seminal set from Eric Dolphy – one of his most perfectly realized moments at the head of a larger ensemble – and a record that definitely set the tone for countless spiritual jazz sessions of the 70s! Dolphy recorded this session for Alan Douglas in 1962, and it features a larger array of players than you'll find on most of his records for other labels – the cream of the "new thing" players that were around New York at the time, including Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Woody Shaw on trumpet, Prince Lasha on flute, Sonny Simmons on alto, and even Clifford Jordan on soprano sax – making a rare appearance on record on that instrument! Together, the players create a set of soundscapes that lies somewhere between Dolphy's Out To Lunch album, and some of the more modernist work by Mingus – a stunning batch of tracks that go out, but never too far. Titles include "Ode to CP", "Burning Spear", "Iron Man", and "Mandrake". CD

Eydie GormeEydie In Love ... LP
ABC, 1958. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Eydie's definitely in love on this one – given the romantic nature of most of the tunes, and the gentle, ballad-heavy approach of the record – and although her longtime paramour Steve Lawrence is pictured in a photo on the back cover, the album's all Gorme's own! Backings are by Don Costa, in that lightly sparkling style he often used to great effect with Eydie over the years – a mode that keeps things simple and direct, but which brings out a personal, honest sort of warmth that cascades over the whole album with a nice sort of glow. Titles include "Love Letters", "In Other Words", "Why Shouldn't I", "In The Wee Small Hours", "Here I Am In Love Again", "In Love In Vain", and "Idle Conversation". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has spots of clear tape on the top & bottom seams.)

New Bobby Hutcherson/David Sanborn/Joey DeFrancescoEnjoy The View ... CD
Blue Note, 2014. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Bobby Hutcherson returns to Blue Note – on a set that's got a surprisingly fresh sound! The format's different both from Bobby's previous work for the label, and from his more recent albums on other imprints – in that it mixes his masterful vibes with Hammond from Joey DeFrancesco – a blend that makes for a different side of Hutcherson's talents than before, and great placement for the shifting sound of his instrument in these later years. Bobby's a bit more subtle than we remember, but still has this wonderful sense of flow and tone – soft sheets of electric sound that get sharper bite from Joey's Hammond and the alto sax of David Sanborn – who both really balance things out, and demonstrate the quadruple-leadership of the date. Billy Hart completes the groups on drums – with a laidback, spacious sensibility – and the album features a great remake of "Montara", plus "You", "Teddy", "Hey Harold", "Little Flower", and "Delia".

New Kid Creole & The CoconutsOff The Coast Of Me ... LP
Antilles/Ze, 1980. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
After a few years knocking around in the New York club scene – doing successful work with Dr Buzzard's Original Savannah Band, Machine, and other groups – August Darnell burst forth as Kid Creole, a unique musical persona that was a conglomeration of many styles, from disco to new wave to Carribean to art deco. Darnell's "Nouveau Wave" recordings from the time were extremely fresh – and a good way to borrow the campiness that was plaguing the disco scene and filter it through a hipper postmodern sense of humor. This first album wasn't his biggest in terms of dancefloor hits – but it did start a pretty good run, and really put the Ze label on the map for a few years. Titles include "Maladie D'Amour", "Yolanda", "Coast Of me", "Darrio", and "Bogota Affair". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Top seam is split.)

New Mary Jane GirlsOnly Four You ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1985. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A lasting classic from the funky female foursome who were one of the biggest acts on Motown in the mid-80s – working here with super tight production and arrangements from Rick James – who also wrote all the songs on the record too! The girls' look is a bit dated, but their sound has surprisingly strong staying power – partly because of Rick's crossover version of funk in the rhythms, but also because of the way the vocal interplay still stays nice and catchy! The album's definitely commercial, but doesn't have that clunk that makes other efforts of this time from the time fall flat – and titles include "In My House", "I Betcha", "Girlfriend", Wild & Crazy Love", "Shadow Lover", "Break It Up", and "Lonely For You".

New VariousSoul Togetherness 2012 – 15 Modern Soul Room Gems ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2012. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Soul sounds that work perfectly together – on a set that's maybe the most compelling of the Soul Togetherness series so far! There's loads of great contemporary numbers here – some nuggets from the underground, a few more mainstream tracks, and even a few mixes that really transform the tunes – making their key appearance here in CD format. The vibe is deeply soulful throughout – as the set's put together by folks who also have a strong ear for classic soul and funk – and titles include "Turn It Up" by Kenny Thomas, "Don't Give Up" by Aaries, "Taking It Too Far" by Big Brooklyn Red, "Don't Wanna Wait" by Lew Kirton, "Save Our Freedom" by Bah Samba, "Running Around" by Cool Million, "1960 What (Opolopo kick & bass rerub)" by Gregory Porter, "Woo" by Anthony Hamilton, "Let It Go" by Jazzanova, "Thinking About You" by Maurissa Rose, "Share My Love" by R Kelly, and "You Did It Again" by Soulpersona & Princess Freesia.

New VariousTheme Time Music – 23 Criminal Classic Songs About Murder, Theft & Devilish Deeds ... CD
Righteous (UK), 1930s/1940s/1950s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Dark tales from the mid-century American scene – a host of rare blues, folk, and country numbers that went onto become inspiration for a host of rockers in later years! The package is put together with a Mojo stamp of approval – and features the original recordings of tunes that are key roots for Bob Dylan, Led Zepplin, Ry Cooder, Johnny Cash, and others – some classics, others a fair bit more obscure – and brought together here with thoughtful notes by Dave Henderson of Mojo. Titles include "Cast Iron Arm" by Peanuts Wilson, "Vigilante Man" by Woody Guthrie, "Dying Crapshooter's Blues"by Blind Willie McTell, "John Hardy Was A Deperate Little Man" by The Carter Family, "Stack O Lee" by Mississippi John Hurt, "Banks Of The Ohio" by Bascom Lamar Lunsford, "Pretty Polly" by Dock Boggs, "Jesse James" by Almeda Riddle, "Prison Cell Blues" by Leroy Carr, "The Gallis Pole" by Leadbelly, "Ornie Wise" by GB Grayson, and "Miss Otis Regrets" by Ethel Waters.

New VariousTragic Songs From The Grassy Knoll – John F Kennedy 50th Anniversary Collection ... CD
Norton, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the weirdest sub-genres of music you'll ever hope to discover – a whole host of songs that were issued in the wake of the untimely early death of John F Kennedy – a batch of tribute tunes to the late president, served up in a unique collection of rare singles! There's a surprisingly large number of country songs on the set – no surprise, as the story format of the genre works perfectly for the tributes – as does the country style of stepping out with a monologue in the middle. A few other numbers are more rocking, but in a somber way – and all together, the singles unearth this lost musical legacy that really demonstrates the power of the man at the time. Titles include "Memories Of Kennedy" by Hasil Adkins, "Tragedy Of John F Kennedy" by The Justice Brothers, "A Tragedy In Dallas" by James Dotson, "John F Kennedy" by Buddy Pastuck, "Lee Harvey Was A Friend Of Mine" by Homer Henderson, "Two Brothers" by Bobby Jenzen, "Tribute To President Kennedy" by Johnny Dee, and "A Sunny Day In Dallas" by The Honorable Bob Peters.

New VariousTrue Soul Vol 1 – Deep Sounds From The Left Of Stax (CD & DVD) ... CD
Now Again, 1960s/1970s. New Copy CD + DVD ... Out Of Stock
The first volume in Now Again's incredible compilation series for the True Soul label – assembled with the personal participation of the label's owner, Lee Anthony – rare, deep and absolute True Soul and funk from the 60s & 70s catalog of the revered Arkansas indie! It's rare regional funk & soul made under the mightily imposing shadows of southern labels like Stax and Hi Records – but the tunes here are straight up incredible and as ripe for discovery as any music of the era. The label was called True Soul and they don't take that moniker lightly – but it's adventurously soulful, with strains of psychedelic soul and funk, with a bit of southern swagger. Includes "Slipping Around (45 Version)", "Funky Music", "Sister Funk (Original, Full Version)" and "Follow The Rainbow (Alternate Mix)" by Thomas East, a great instrumental cover of "Come Together" by Albert Smith, "Doing My Own Thing" by John Craig, "Funky Football", "Psychedelic Hot Pants (Full Version)" and more by York Wilbern's Psychedelic Six, "Hard Times" by Classic Funk, "I Gotta Move With The Groove" by The Right Track", "The Real Thing" by The Conspiracy and "(It's A) "Rat Race by The Leaders. 14 tracks in all on the CD– including a previously unreleased York Wilborn's Psychedelic Six track. It also comes with a DVD – featuring live footage from a 1973 True Soul Revue television program, and the set is packaged beautifully! The CD & DVD are bound in what's essentially a small hardcover book – a thick, lavishly illustrated one – full of vintage performance, studio and promo photos, discography, deeply felt notes by Eothen Alapatt, plus interviews conducted by Egon. We heard years ago that Now Again was cooking this series up. . .and it was absolutely worth the wait. CD

A very aptly titled set – as Gilles P is one of the most eclectic DJs around, and one of the best too! The set is Gilles 4th for the Trust The DJ series – and like the others, it's a well-chosen batch of tunes that pushes the boundaries of modern music in all the right directions! Gilles dips into the cream of the crop of the soulful underground – bringing together jazz-based tracks, Brazilian groovers, spiritual club tunes, and some of the most far-reaching music being made on this planet in service of the groove. Highlights on the set include "Jogando Capoeira" by Beatfanatic, "Barulhos (LTJ X-Perience rmx)" by Studio Apartment, "Longer (Wait)" by The Watch featuring Alison Evelyn, "Eple" by Royksopp, "Words & Poets" by Mr Spck, "Revelation" by Detroit Experiment, "This Journey In (voc)" by The Rebirth, and "Leave Me Now" by Stateless. 12 tracks in all – all unmixed.

New VariousWants List 2 – Another 18 Soulful Rare Grooves ... CD
Soul Brother (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing collection of funky nuggets – one that's overflowing with hip soul, funk, and break tracks! The set's the second in a series put together by the staff of London's Soul Brother Records – and like the first, it features some of the most sought-after rare grooves and sample tracks from the 70s – a rich array of titles from a variety of different labels, all collected with a keen ear for the older tracks that are still breaking big well into the 21st Century! And since these guys also run a record store themselves, they've gone way past the obvious – and have chosen an all-essential batch of tunes that aren't easily available on the market, including some killer tracks from major labels that we've been waiting years to see reissued. Titles include "Oops Here I Go Again" by Edna Wright, "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little Bit More" by Kellee Patterson, "Sho Nuff" by Sly Slick & Wicked, "All I Want Is You" by Four Flights, "Live For Love" by GC Cameron, "I Feel So At Home Here" by Michelle Wiley, "Shake It Up" by The Vibrations, "My Music" by Samuel Jonathan Johnson, "Heaven" by Ruth Copeland, "It's Got To Be Mellow (1976)" by Leon Mellow, "Making Room For Love" by Alton McClain & Destiny, and "When We're Makin Love" by Denise LaSalle.

New Maria Joao PiresMaria Joao Pires – Complete Solo Recordings (20CD set) ... CD
Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 1990s/2000s. New Copy 20 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Tremendous work from one of the most solid soloists to emerge in the Deutsche Grammophon catalog in recent decades – pianist Maria Joao Pires, an artist who is able to hold onto all the rich tradition of the imprint, while still moving forward with a very personal, very sensitive approach! This package features Maria at her best – working mostly solo, and on a few "four hands" compositions with Ricardo Castro – a set of 20 albums that are each presented with their original artwork! The package is similar to – but almost better than – some of DG's boxes of material from Martha Agerich – and composers include Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven – plus superb readings of work by Chopin, Schubert, and Schumann.

New SonzeiraBrasil Bam Bam Bam (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Talkin' Loud/Universal (Japan), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the hippest records we've heard in years from Gilles Peterson – a wonderful project that brings together classic and contemporary Brazilian talents, and some key London artists as well! The lineup features giants from the sorts of older Brazilian records that Gilles hipped us to many years ago – like percussionist Nana Vasconcelos, and singers Marcos Valle, Elza Soares, and Wilson Das Neves – plus contemporary artists like Kassin on bass (he also co-produced too), and Seu Jorge, Lucas Santtana, or Mart'nalia on vocals – and great British artists like Ski Oakenfull on keyboards, Sean O'Hagan on guitar, and Bembe Segue, Valerie Etienne, and Rob Gallagher on vocals! The list of participants is even bigger than this – and the album was recorded in London, Brighton, and Rio – with arrangements by many of the participants too – all to create this complex criss-crossing of the classic and contemporary, British and Brazilian, all with the kind of 21st Century crackle that only Gilles Peterson could carry off this well. Titles include "Where Nana Hides", "Brasil Pandeiro", "Sambaio", "The Mystery Of Man", "Aquarela Do Brasil", "Estrelar", "Bam Bam Bam", "Um Toque", and "City Of Saints". CD
(SHMCD pressing.)
