Roy BrownGood Rocking Tonight – Legendary Recordings Vol 2 ... LP
Route 66 (Sweden), Late 40s/Early 50s. Near Mint- .... $11.99
Although Roy Brown had a slightly softer edge than some of his R&B contemporaries – he could definitely rock and wail when he wanted to, as you'll hear on this set! The set does good job of digging through Roy's work from the late 40s and early 50s, pulling together 15 tracks that mix Wynonnie Harris-ish rockers (no surprise, as King often had Brown and Harris splitting "Battle Of The Blues" albums together), with mellower soulful tunes. Tracks include "Black Diamond", "Mighty Mighty Man", "Long About Midnight", "Miss Fanny Brown Returns", "Butcher Pete part 2", "Brown Angel", "Grandpa Stole My Baby", and the original version of "Good Rockin Tonight", which is a lot rawer than you'd expect!

Coleman Hawkins, Roy Eldridge, Pete Brown, et alColeman Hawkins All Stars At Newport ... LP
Verve, 1957. Near Mint- .... $9.99
Three great horn players with plenty of space to solo freely – working together on the stage of the Newport Jazz Festival in 1957! The combo's one put together for the date, but they groove together nicely – rhythm by the trio of Ray Bryant on piano, Al McKibbon on bass, and Jo Jones on drums – and top-line solo work from Coleman Hawkins on tenor, Roy Eldridge on trumpet, and the great Pete Brown on alto! The album may well be one of Brown's last appearances on Verve, and his work from the 50s is always a treat – and he gets in an especially nice solo on a version of "Day By Day". Other tracks include "I Can't Believe You're In Love With Me", "Moonglow", "Embraceable You", and "Sweet Georgia Brown". LP, Vinyl record album

Clocktower, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue).... Out Of Stock
Compilation of classic level U-Roy from the peak mid-to-late 70s period – with those thick, hazy rhythms heavy, heavy bass lines – and fronted by the inimitable voice of The Originator! Cuts appear to be alternately titled jams originally produced by Bunny Lee – and it's prime dub sounds all the way. Includes "Gorgon", "Hold On Rasta", "Deck Of Cards", "War", "Come On Deh", "I Shall Not Remove", "Joyful Locks" and "Dub Of Locks". LP, Vinyl record album

Roy AyersVirgo Red ... LP
Polydor, 1973. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
A great little album from Roy Ayers – a very funky record that's almost all instrumental all the way through! The sound is a bit in the vein of Roy's Live At Montreux set – but funkier overall, thanks to some very heavy rhythms on the bottom – and an approach to the tunes that's short, tight, and very much on the money! In addition to Roy's great vibes, the set also features Harry Whitaker on electric piano, Jimmy Owens and Cecil Bridgewater on trumpets, Garnett Brown on trombone, and Dennis Davis on drums and percussion – all very hip players who really help Roy find the mix of jazz and funk he was going for at the time. Dee Dee Bridgewater sings a bit of vocals on the record, joining Roy on the sublime spiritual track "Love From The Sun" – but most other tracks on the album have a more instrumental approach. The record includes a great remake of Leroy Hutson's track "Giving Love", sung more famously by Voices of East Harlem, and it's also got a nice funky cover of the hit "Brother Louie" – plus the tracks "The Morning After", "Des Nude Soul", "Virgo Red", "Love From The Sun", and "I Am Your Mind".

Duke Ellington & Johnny HodgesSide By Side ... CD
Verve, 1959. Used .... $7.99
A great little session that builds on the strength of Johnny Hodges' small group 50s sessions for Verve – and which lets Duke Ellington in on some of the action! The format is nicely stripped-down throughout – featuring Hodges in sextet and septet formation with players that include Ben Webster, Roy Eldridge, Les Spann, Lawrence Brown, and Jo Jones. And while Duke's actually only on piano on 3 tracks on the album (Billy Strayhorn handles keys on the other 6), the session's still a great example of small combo Ellingtonia at its best! Titles include "Ruint", "Stompy Jones", "Big Shoe", "Going Up", "Just A Memory", and "You Need to Rock". CD

Archie SheppAttica Blues Big Band Live At The Palais Des Glaces ... CD
Blue Marge (France), 1979. New Copy 2CD .... $18.99 24.99
Attica Blues, and beyond – a great late 70s performance that has Archie Shepp turning the clock back towards that famous album – but also making some very new grooves with a richly expanded lineup! The double-length set was recorded in Paris, in front of a very lively crowd – and it's honestly one of Shepp's most dynamic records from the time – definitely inspired by all the freedom he'd had in the French scene for the previous decade – yet also brought together with a great sense of focus too. The lineup is excellent – with vocals from Joe Lee Wilson and Irene Datcher – trumpets from Malachi Thompson, Charles McGhee, and Roy Burrowes; trombones from Charles Greenlee, Dick Griffin, and Steve Turre; reeds from Marion Brown, James Ware, and Marvin Blackman; plus piano from Art Matthews, some added strings, great percussion, and piano, tenor, and soprano sax from Shepp himself! Ray Copeland directs the group – giving it the hip focus of his few key recordings like this – and titles include "Star Love", "Moon Bees", "Attica Blues" (in two parts), "Steam", "Quiet Dawn", "Hi Fly", "U-Jaama", "Ballad For A Child", "Simone", "Crucificado", :A Change Has Come Over Me", "Goodbye Sweet Pops", and "Skippin'".

Sonny StittOnly The Blues (Verve Elite pressing – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Verve/Essential Jazz (Spain), 1957. Used .... $14.99
Probably the most classic of Stitt's sides for Verve – and certainly the one that gets rated time and time again by jazz collectors. We think it's pretty darn great – although we always wonder why folks don't give Stitt's other sides for Verve as much of a chance, because they're all pretty darn excellent! The record's a very laidback session, with 4 long tracks that feature plenty of room for Stitt to meander along on his solos. The group includes Roy Eldridge, Oscar Peterson, Herb Ellis, Ray Brown, and Stan Levey – and titles include "The String", "BW Blues", and "Blues For Bags". CD

Lem Winchester & The Ramsey Lewis TrioPerform A Tribute To Clifford Brown ... LP
Argo, 1958. Very Good- .... $8.99
The great underrated vibist Lem Winchester plays a tribute to the late Clifford Brown, along with the classic Ramsey Lewis trio, which included Eldee Young and Redd Holt. Despite the lack of an actual trumpet on the date (although the cover has a crazy image of the group standing around the instrument on some rocks!), the set does manage to capture the warmth and lyricism of Brownie, and the vibes/piano lines are a mixture of bop, plus some of the mellower sounds of similar lineups – like the classic Roy Ayers/Jack Wilson LPs. Tracks include "Joy Spring", "Jordu", "Sandu", "Message From Boysie", and "Where It Is", an original by Winchester. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousCan You Dig It? – The Music & Politics Of Black Action Films 1968 to 1975 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD .... $24.99
Possibly the best-ever collection of blacksploitation grooves we've ever seen – a really comprehensive package that not only manages to cover the classics, but which also digs deep enough to come up with lots of fresh bits too! The set really sets a new level for the Soul Jazz label – and is carried off with enough authority towards Black Action films as the label's legendary efforts towards a host of less mainstream genres – truly an achievement for the label's crew, not to mention a heavier bonus for our funky listening pleasure! There's way more here than just a slapped-together batch of tunes from the early 70s – as the set's very carefully put together to showcase a wide range of sounds, along with notes that really get at the social and political power of both the music and the films. 2CD package features a massive color booklet inside the slipcase – and features 34 tracks that include "Shaft In Africa" by Johnny Pate, "Down & Out In New York City" by James Brown, "Wilford's Gone" by The Blackbyrds, "Run Fay Run" by Isaac Hayes, "Theme From Black Belt Jones" by Dennis Coffey, "Willie Chase" by JJ Johnson, "T Plays It Cool" by Marvin Gaye, "Charley" by Don Costa, "Brother's Gonna Work It Out" by Willie Hutch, "Blacula" by Gene Page, "Theme From Cleopatra Jones" by Joe Simon, "Pursuit Of The Pimpmobile" by Isaac Hayes, "Sweetback's Theme" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Aragon" by Roy Ayers, "Strung Out" by Gordon Staples, "Easin In" by Edwin Starr, "The Bus" by Solomon Burke & Gene Page, "Make A Resolution" by The Impressions, "Ed & Digger" by Cotton Comes To Harlem, "Las Vegas Strut" by Jack Ashford, "Lay It On Your Head" by Don Julian, and "Zombie March" by Nat Dove & The Devils.

VP, 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 4CD .... $33.99 59.98
A sprawling set that commemorates the Reggae Golden Jubilee– one that's beautifully put together by VP – and featuring 100 pivotal tracks from the early 60s to the late 00s! Selector Mr. Seaga does a pretty terrific job on the tracklist – which focuses as much on tracks that proved to be among the most trailblazing as it does on big hits. It touches on the styles and subgenres from throughout reggae's history – from ska, to rocksteady, reggae, dub, deejay, dancehall and beyond – with bellwether material by Theophilus Beckford, Higgs & Wilson, Skatalites, U-Roy, Peter Tosh, Jimmy Cliff, Yellowman, Third World, Dennis Brown, Maxi Priest, Sugar Minott, Beres Hammond, Sizzla, Shaggy and many, many more.

Clef, Early 50s. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful meeting of two of the biggest 50s talents on the drums – and a session that's great not only for the expected firey percussion, but also for the horn work by other members on the set! Given the "drum battle" style of the record, the tracks are long and very open – done in a studio mode that recalls some of the Krupa/Rich meetings at JATP, and like the JATP sides, featuring plenty of space for players to take longer solos. Dizzy Gillespie, Illinois Jacquet, Flip Phillips, and Roy Eldridge get in some nice licks on the set – and other players include Oscar Peterson, Herb Ellis, and Ray Brown. Titles include "Gene's Blues", "Bernie's Tune", "Buddy's Blues", and "I Never Knew". LP, Vinyl record album

New Michal UrbaniakEcstasy (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Marlin/Clinck (Japan), 1978. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most soul-based albums in Michal Urbaniak's catalog – a session originally done with TK records during the height of their dancefloor years, fitted up with some really great clubby grooves! The sound here is a mix of fusion and soul – done in a way that still gives Urbaniak plenty of room to solo on violin, sax, and keys – but which also sets up a warmer groove overall and really lets the vocals come center stage. Urszula Dudziak sings on about half the tracks – and other vocals are by Kenyatta and Calvin Brown – and the jazzy inflections of the tune really set this apart from lots of the other Miami disco on Marlin, giving the record a much deeper feel overall, and a quality that's held up very nicely through the years! Dark edges mix with warmer moments nicely, almost in a Roy Ayers way – and titles include "A Day In The Park", "Just A Funky Feeling", "Body Rub", "Ecstasy", "Creation", and "Want's Ta Make You Feel Good".

Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Blazing R&B, slightly more simmering soul, and some rollicking wildcard tunes that split the difference – all on this fantastic second volume in the R&B Singles series from Outta Sight! It's a great collection, culled mostly from the fertile early 60s period when the sound was still strongly rooted in mid-to-late 50s rhythm & blues, yet beginning to lay the groundwork for gritty southern soul and tighter Northern Soul sounds to come. A nice mix of legendary names and lesser known stars alike, with 30 great tracks in all: "Feelin' Kind A Lonesome" by Willie J Charles with Lionel Hampton, the eternally amazing "Cry To Me" by Solomon Burke", "Earthquake" by Roy Hamilton, "Come On Baby" by Marie Knight, "The Snake" by Oscar Brown Jr, "How Many More Times" by HB Barnum, "Shake It Up And Go" by John Lee Hooker, "A Three Dollar Bill" by Beverly Ann Gibson, "I See Your Face" by Joe Simon, "Betty Mae" by Rodger Green and more.

A tremendous double-length set by this hip group of legendary players – a quartet lineup that features trumpeter Roy Campbell, reedman Daniel Carter, bassist William Parker, and drummer Hamid Drake – all working together in sounds that definitely reach some other dimensions in music! The format is very loose and open-ended – perfect for the loft jazz-styled improvisations from the combo – working here in a very friendly, supportive setting in front of a Parisian audience – who clearly inspire the musicians to new heights. Some tracks are quite long, but stand as bold statements throughout – and others are a bit shorter, and nicely compact. Titles include "Other Dimensional Space Travelers Hip Bop", "Blues Configuration", "Slam Me Down", "Blues For Baghdad", "Desert Dance", "Suite For Miles Davis", and "James Brown Ascension". CD

New Roy AyersRoy Ayers Ubiquity ... LP
Polydor, 1971. New Copy (reissue).... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest Roy Ayers albums of all time – and one of the rarest! The record is right in the same vein as Roy's groundbreaking He's Coming LP – a righteous mix of soul jazz, subtle funk, and some of the cosmic wisdom that Roy was spreading among the jazz funk underground – all wrapped up beautifully, but never in a way that's like commercial soul of the time. There's a few instrumental tracks on the album, plus some vocal ones that show that off-beat male/female style that Roy would use more famously in later tracks like "Everybody Loves The Sunshine" or his work with Ramp. Players include Harry Whitaker on electric piano, Edwin Birdsong on organ, Alphonse Mouzon on drums, Jumma Santos on congas – and titles include a version of Nat Adderley's "Hummin", done as "Hummin In The Sun", and very much in the Ramp vein. Also features instrumental cuts "The Fuzz", which has Roy's vibes toned way up, and the cool mellow "The Painted Desert", a really offbeat slow jazz number. The group also does a great job with Edwin Birdsong's "Pretty Brown Skin", picking up the song as a really anthemic groover that gives the record a nice kick! LP, Vinyl record album

Rather than rock, these tunes are more rockabilly, of course – and Wanda's amazing, raspy yet pretty voice is definitely rooted in classic honky tonk, too. It's a really fun record from her prime at Capitol. Tracks include "Lonely Week-Ends", "Kansas City", "Fallin", "Hard Headed Woman", "Tongue Tied", "Sparkling Brown Eyes", and "Man We Had A Party".

Jazzman blow the roof off the Carolina scene here – digging through a wealth of rare 70s funk to explode the myth that the states are only home to beach music and shag tunes! The grooves here are every bit as gritty as previous Jazzman outings to Texas, Florida, and the Midwest – and the package offers up a few classics, some unreleased numbers, and a bunch of tunes we've never heard before – all supported by the kind of in-depth notes that Jazzman does better than anyone else! And sure, we've been digging funky 45s for years – but its sets like this that almost get us more excited in the music than the originals – thanks to the overall conception and quality of the work. Titles include "Creation Of Music" by Primitive, "Darkness" by Gamith, "Just Take Your Time" by Innersouls, "Super Good" by Dynamite Singletary, "Funky Soul Brother" by The Soul Drifters, "The Road" by Communicators & Black Experience Band, "Theme Of Blackbyrds" by The Black Exotics, "Good Time" by George Campbell, "Funky Mind" by Donnie Brown, "Doing What You Need To Do" by Anthony Burns, "JD's Funky Party Time" by JD, "Bad Woman" by Frankie & The Damons, "Ease It To Me" by Shirlean Williams & The Tempo's Band, "Stand Up & Be A Man (part 1)" by Sundia, and "You Ain't Miss It" by Roy Roberts.

Randy BrownWelcome To My Room/Midnight Desire ... CD
Casablanca/Shout (UK), 1978/1980. New Copy .... $14.99
Two killers from Randy Brown – sublime 70s soul, back to back on a single CD! Welcome To My Room is a mellow soul masterpiece from Randy Brown – a crucially-overlooked talent from the late 70s, working here with a totally put-together vibe! The album's got the mature, mellow feel of some of the best work by better-known 70s contemporaries – like Leroy Hutson or Lamont Dozier – polished, but never slick – and flowing out with a sensual groove that's especially nice on the more laidback or midtempo cuts. Randy's vocals have some great deep soul echoes – much more so than other singers of this type – and mixed with the warm production from Homer Banks and Carl Hampton, they give the album a rich quality that totally grabs us – a bit like some of Teddy Pendergrass' best mellow work with The Blue Notes. Titles include "I Love You Baby", "Love Is All We Need", "Do It Baby", "Too Little In Common", and "I'd Rather Hurt Myself". Midnight Desire is a sweet, smooth stepper from the great Randy Brown – and a record that's got the same sublime mix of mellow grooves and earthy vocals that you might find on some of Tyrone Davis' best late 70s work for Columbia! Tunes are all plenty darn fresh – written by the team of Homer Banks and Chuck Brooks, who also produced the album – and Randy's got this way of hitting a groove that's confident, but never arrogant – a perfect late 70s masculine mode, of the sort only a handful of singers could handle this well! Titles include "Without You (I Can't Make It Through The Night)", "We Ought To Be Doin It", and "Do You Love Me?" – all of which have great hooks – plus "Do You Love Me", "Love Be With You", and "Love Formula".

The vocals are amazing – thanks to the lead talents of the legendary Loman Pauling – and the instrumentation is nice and tight, with even a bit of guest organ from Bill Doggett, who really helps things cook! Titles include their classic "Think" – later redone by James Brown, as a nod to the influence the group had on his music – plus "Someone Made You For Me", "Come On & Save Me", "Dedicated To The One I Love", "Messin Up", "Tears Of Joy", "Thirty Second Lover".

The second 10" LP in Johnny's classic "collates" series for Verve – a hard-hitting batch of tracks that blows away any work he recorded with Ellington in earlier years! Johnny's at the head of the group – and the set offers an amazing focus on his alto sax lines – some of the deepest, most soulful on the instrument up to that time – given very sympathetic backing by a group that features Flip Phillips and Al Sears on tenor, Lawrence Brown on trombone, and Leroy Lovett on piano. Titles include "Below The Azores", "Jeep's Blues", "What's I'm Gotchere", "Rosanne", and "Duke's Blues". Great David Stone Martin cover, too! CD

King CurtisDoing The Dixie Twist ... LP
Tru Sound/Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good- .... $11.99
Quite a groovy early album from King Curtis – one that's got a strange little gimmick, but one that works wonderfully! The "dixie twist" theme means that King's taking older standards associated with the south, and playing them in a fast-crackling, highly rhythmic style that has plenty of "twist" elements! The groove is surprisingly great – really playful, and filled with great work on tenor, trombone, and guitar – all nicely grooving in a style that will really make you forget the origins of the tunes. Titles include "Sweet Georgia Brown", "A Shanty In Old Shantytown", "Royal Garden Blues", "Basin Street Blues", and "Up A Lazy River". LP, Vinyl record album
(Tru-sound pressing with deep groove. Cover has wear, some small stains, some seam splitting, and promo stamp and some pen on the back.)

Charles McPhersonSiku Ya Bibi (Day Of The Lady) ... LP
Mainstream, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold .... $11.99
Charles McPherson plays with a large ensemble in this tribute to Billie Holiday – in a core group with piano by Barry Harris, guitar by Earl Dunbar, bass by Sam Jones, and drums by Leroy Williams – plus larger backing by a string section. Tracks are mostly Billie Holiday standards, arranged by Ernie Wilkins with a sweet sad tone that makes the record quite different than most of McPherson's work from the time. Titles include "Don't Explain", "Miss Brown To You", "Lover Come Back to Me", "Lover Man", and "God Bless the Child". LP, Vinyl record album

Niney The ObserverDubbing With The Observer ... CD
Jamaican Recordings (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy .... $13.99
The first-ever dub album from Niney The Observer – based around rhythms he'd cooked up for Dennis Brown, Max Romeo, and Delroy Wilson – all transformed completely in the studio by King Tubby! The sounds here are often very abstract – light years away from the originals – and given these spacey, repetitive cycles that seem to trip out even more than conventional dub! A landmark little record, and one that sounds even darker all these many years later – with cuts that include "Casanova Dub", "Rebel Dance", "Jam Down", "Parade Dub", "Turntable Dub", "Corn Man", "Mister D Brown Skank", and "Youth Man". 3 CD bonus tracks on this version: "Yagga Dub", "Tenement Dub" and "You're No Dub".

Bobby ThurstonYou Got What It Takes ... LP
Prelude, 1980. Very Good .... $4.99
A pretty darn soulful album of disco tracks from Bobby Thurston – produced with help from Willie Lester, Rodney Brown, and Al Johnson, who also sings in the backup vocal group. The album's got two killer mellow soul cuts – the stretched out slinky groover "I Want Your Body", which has a super-dope 70s groove that would make Leroy Hutson proud, and a great remake of "Sittin In The Park", which Bobby had recorded earlier, but not as well as he does here. Other tracks include "Check Out The Groove", "You Got What It Takes", and "I Wanna Do It With You". LP, Vinyl record album

Stilton (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy .... $12.99
An excellent compilation of rare funky jazz tunes – issued here supposedly as a lost soundtrack, but really just a collection of tunes from other sources, all with a nice soundtrack-y jazz feel! There's a few familiar names here, but most of the material is from rare European and American indie jazz LPs, and sound library sources of late 60s/early 70s vintage, with a nice mix of electric and acoustic playing. Titles include "Troublemaker" by John Cameron, "Voodoo Love Dance" by Melvyn Price, "Do Whatever Sets You Free" by Gus Giordano, "Chili Mac" by Preston Love, "La Folla" by Solar Plexus, "A New Generation" by Oscar Brown Jr & Jean Pace, "Dancer" by Gregory Charles Royal, "Zazueira" by Meta Roos, and "Jody's Freeze" by James Reese & The Progressors.

Nice set of funky tracks from 70s films – and one that includes a few hits, and a few other hard to find tracks. This isn't going to be the be-all and end-all of blacksploitation tracks, but the set's a nice general sampler, with a dozen good tracks from the 70s. Titles include "Are You Man Enough" by The Four Tops, "Little Ghetto Boy" by Donnie Hathaway, "Let's Do It Again" by The Staple Singers, "Theme/Overture Of Foxy Brown" by Willie Hutch, "Car Wash" by Rose Royce, "It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday" by GC Cameron, and "No Way Back" by The Dells.

VariousGodfather's R&B – James Brown's Productions 1962 to 1967 ... CD
Smash/BGP (UK), 1960s. New Copy .... $14.99
A host of wonderful work produced by James Brown – most of it by a range of different singers, and one by The Godfather himself! The collection brings together some of the earliest James Brown productions – mid 60s tracks recorded for King and Smash Records, most of which aren't nearly as well known as later JB productions for the People and Polydor labels! As with that later work, all the grooves here are right in the same territory that James was hitting himself – upbeat, funky, and stone out of sight soul – all with plenty of rough edges, and backings from the same tight core of musicians that were helping out Brown on his recordings. The package is a real treasure – and is a great complement to the James Brown Singles collections from the Hip-O Select label – proof that even in these early days, James was clearly the hardest working man in show business – given all his time in the studio with other artists! 22 tracks in all – including "I Found Out" and "I'll Keep Pressing On" by Bobby Byrd, "That's When I Cry" and "If You Don't Think" by Anna King, "I Don't Care" and "Unexplainable" by Dizzy Jones, "Got No Excuse" and "If You Don't Work You Can't Eat" by James Crawford, "Do You Really Want To Rescue Me (part 1)" by Elsie Mae, "Lookie Lookie Lookie" by The Jewells, "Wide Awake In A Dream" and "Nobody Cares" by Vicki Anderson, "Devil's Den" by The Poets, "It Hurts To Be In Love" by Yvonne Fair, "That's The Spirit" by Rev Willingham, "Faith" by The Five Royales, "I Cried" by Tammy Montgomery, "Soul Food (parts 1 & 2)" by Al Brisco Clark, and "New Breed (The Boo Ga Loo) (part 1)" by James Brown.

New Randy BrownWelcome To My Room ... CD
Casablanca/Universal, 1978. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A mellow soul masterpiece from Randy Brown – a crucially-overlooked talent from the late 70s, working here with a totally put-together vibe! The album's got the mature, mellow feel of some of the best work by better-known 70s contemporaries – like Leroy Hutson or Lamont Dozier – polished, but never slick – and flowing out with a sensual groove that's especially nice on the more laidback or midtempo cuts. Randy's vocals have some great deep soul echoes – much more so than other singers of this type – and mixed with the warm production from Homer Banks and Carl Hampton, they give the album a rich quality that totally grabs us – a bit like some of Teddy Pendergrass' best mellow work with The Blue Notes. Titles include "I Love You Baby", "Love Is All We Need", "Do It Baby", "Too Little In Common", and "I'd Rather Hurt Myself". CD

Who would have imagined the Casio could sound so great! Lloyd Jammy James showcases his right to the throne established by King Tubby, his mentor, on this massive collection of the sound of modern reggae that he pioneered in the early 80s. 20 groundbreaking numbers that ushered in the digital age of reggae that still dominates the Jamaican record industry, classics in every sense of the word all the way through!

New Paul MotianConception Vessel ... LP
ECM, 1973. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Paul Motian didn't always record that much as a leader, but the dates under his own name are always compelling ones – and quite a change from his more famous work with Bill Evans! This set is a sparkling showcase of original tunes by Motian – played by a shifting array of players that includes Charlie Haden on bass, Sam Brown on guitar, Keith Jarrett on piano and flute, and Leroy Jenkins on violin – all with a much freer, more out sound than you might expect to hear on ECM in later years. The set's one of the standouts from the time when the label was nodding more in the free jazz directions of some of their European contemporaries – and Motion proves to be a surprisingly great choice for the session. Titles include "Georgian Bay", "Ch'I Energy", "Rebica", "Conception Vessel", and "American Indian Song Of Sitting Bull". LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousCold Heat – Heavy Funk Rarities 1968-1974 Vol 1 ... LP
Now Again/Stones Throw, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP .... Out Of Stock
Stones Throw does it again – with a massive batch of older funk rarities that tops most of the rest on the market! Cold Heat is a follow-up to the label's smoking Funky 16 Corners set – and like that one, it's overflowing with great bits that have barely (or never) been heard by the rest of the world at large. Compiler Egon has gone through a range of rare singles, masters, and demos – and has come up with tunes that burn with a brightness that's undeniable. The grooves are all on the harder end of the James Brown Funky People side of the spectrum – and some tracks are by names that are finally getting their due, thanks to the work of Ego, Wax Poetics, and some of the other funky forces doing the good work over the past few years. In a way, the collection's a summation of some of the singles and reissues coming out through the Now Again/Stones Throw imprint – but it also features some other bits and alternate versions that are totally great! Titles include "Don't Go" by Aristocrats Organization, "Loaded To The Gills (edit)" by Michael Liggins & The Supersouls, "Mr Chicken (alternate)" by The Soul Seven, "Slipping Into Darkness" by Dayton Sidewinders, "James Brown Medley" by The Apollo Commanders, "Scorpio" by Kashmere Stage Band, "Sad Chicken" by Leroy & The Drivers, "Street Scene" by Leon Mitchinson, "Free Your Mind" by Amnesty, "The Thing" by Carleen & The Groovers, "Go For Yourself (edit)" by Kenny Smith & The Loveliters, and "The Stretch (edit)" by Detroit Sex Machines.

New VariousDouble Blast Of Super Soul – Saturday Night At The Uptown/Apollo Saturday Night ... CD
Pacific, Mid 60s. Used .... Out Of Stock
An incredible session of soul – tracks recorded live at the legendary Apollo Theater in Harlem, featuring some of the hippest Stax and Atlantic artists in a very raw setting! The album's got a feel that's a lot less forced than other famous live Apollo sets of the time – very relaxed, but very authentic too – as the singers are given plenty of space to take the lead, and heard here with a quality that's more spontaneous than some of their studio sides. The audience gets a bit of space – but never as bombastically so as on a James Brown record – and given how many artists Atlantic discovered at The Apollo, the album's a nice nod of "thanks" in the right direction! Titles include "I Found A Love" and "Alabama Bound" by The Falcons, "Pain In My Heart" and "These Arms Of Mine" by Otis Redding, "Speedo's Back In Town" by The Coasters, "Misty" and "Say Yeah" by Doris Troy, "Rockin Chair" and "Walkin The Dog" by Rufus Thomas, "Stand By Me" and "Groovin" by Ben E King, and a special finale version of "What'd I Say". Classic live stuff at the Uptown Theatre in Philly, with a mix of Atlantic artists, and artists borrowed from other east coast labels. Performances include "My Girl Sloopy" by The Vibrations, "Down The Aisle" by Patti LaBell & The Bluebells, "If You Need Me" by Wilson Pickett, "The Watusi" by The Vibrations, "Mixed Up, Shook Up Girl" by Patti & The Emblems, "Can't You Hear The Beat" by The Carltons, and more!

New VariousKeb Darge Presents Funk For The 21st Century ... CD
Do Right (Canada), 2002. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Think funk music has to be old to be good? Think again – as Keb Darge takes you on a tour of some of the best funk you'll ever find on one CD, and it's all by current groups! Nobody knows more about old funk than Keb – as his work as a DJ, collector, and compiler have been keeping the music alive for years. But Keb's also open minded enough to realize that there's a heck of a lot of new groups that have been inspired by the classic grooves of the late 60s and early 70s – and who share his love for totally authentic funky tracks that are perfect in every way, top to bottom with dirty, heavy, messed-up funk! The set brings together 14 recent tracks from the deep funk underground – killer cuts that were issued as rare 7" singles, plus a few previously unissued numbers, all with the sock-hard finish of classic work by James Brown or The Meters – and with the added bonus that these are groups that you could actually get up, go out, and see in a club! Tracks include the previously unissued tracks "Wait Up" by Speedometer and "The Badger" by Connie Price & The Keystones – plus "Texas Rumble" by The Imaginary Visions, "Forty First Street Breakdown" by Naomi Davis, "One Note Brown" by The New Mastersounds, "Got To Be The Way It Is" by Sharon Jones, "Who's The King" by Joseph Henry, "The Matador" by The Mighty Imperials, "GT" by The New Mastersounds, "Funky So & So" by The Sugarman Three, and "Blow Your Top (part 1)" by The Soul Destroyers.

Sound Stage 7/Fuel 2000, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs .... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest labels in southern soul at the end of the 60s – a Nashville-based imprint that really helped bridge the space between Memphis and Muscle Shoals – plus some key other points in the south as well! Sound Stage Seven always knew how to record a cut with the right sort of punch – even if it was a ballad – a way of putting over a tune that makes the labels singles almost all worth seeking out – part of an incredible run of top-shelf music that few other indies of the time can hope to touch! Of course, it also helps that the label was run by John Richbourg – a key radio force at the time, with an ear turned towards just the right sort of modes to make his artists sparkle strongly – often much more so than on some of their recordings for other labels. The set features 36 tracks in all – a great mix of southern soul, funky soul, deep soul, and even a few rawer numbers as well – with titles that include "We Gotta Bust Out Of The Ghetto" by Moody Scott, "Breakaway" by The Valentines, "He Called Me Baby" by Ella Washington, "Just Like She Said She Would" by The Soul Ambassadors, "I Want To Keep You" by Roscoe Shelton, "You're Gonna Need Me" by Ted Ford, "Right On Time" by Jimmy Church, "I Can't Be Your Part Time Baby" by Gwen Davis, "Just Another Heartache" by Little Richie, "I'm Not Through Lovin You" by Sir Lattimore Brown, "Let Me Come On Home" by Bobby King, "I Got Love" by Leon Byrd, "Hey Girl" by Jackey Beavers, "I Love You" by Sam Baker, and "Don't Destroy Me" by Margie Hendrix.

The Let's Boogaloo series gets an extra-special pedigree this time around – the added talents of Gerald from Jazzman Records, which makes for an even funkier entry than ever! The cuts are a mix of rare Jazzman grooves and contemporary deep funk killers – all delivered with a sound that's right up there with the best of the late 60s/early 70s funky underground, with lots of heavy drums, hard-riffing guitars, blasting horns, and deeply soulful vocals! Titles include "Makini" by Sal Davis, "Now I've Got A Woman" by Freddy King, "I'm Shakin" by Little Willie John, "Spacin Out" by The Invaders, "Funky Fire" by Billy Larkin, "Angel Food" by The Port Angels, "Newborn" by Shade & The Jazz Destroyers, "Mr Magic" by John Heartsman, "He Spoke" by All Nations Quartet, "It's An Explosion" by Royale VII, "Funky Puggin" by Soul Fantastic, and "Dance Man" by Keisa Brown.
