New Benninghoff's Bad Rock Blues BandBeethoven Bittersweet ... LP
SSS International, Early 70s. Sealed ... $14.99
Very cool bit of instrumental funk, played with sort of a rock-ish edge, and filled with many many rock-oriented breaks. The tracks are long, and R.J. Benninghoff plays funky organ and rocksichord! The rest of the group's pretty nice, too, and tracks are quite long. Titles include "Supersong", "Da Da Da Daah", "Error-otica", and "The Boggy Bayou Revival". Wild cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed original pressing – without the tape in the image – and with a bonus 45 packaged inside!)

New HY SledgeBootleg Music ... LP
SSS International, Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the extremely trippy albums of rock recorded for the SSS International label during the early 70s. Like others on the imprint, we know little about the band, almost never see the record, but do find it to be a pretty good blend of prog and hard rock styles with a nice sense of indie freedom. Titles include "Citation On Liberty", "Cellophane Lady", "Canadian Exodus", "It's In The Air", and "Finding It". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

Linda MartellColor Me Country ... CD
Plantation/Real Gone, 1970. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
The one and only album from Linda Martell – one of the first African-American women to dip into the genre of country music! The album's got a pretty straight country feel overall – none of the country soul you might hear from deep soul singers of the time – or those later modes that artists like Millie Jackson picked up in the 70s. But the set was also recorded as part of the SSS International family of labels headed by Shelby Singleton – who also cut a fair bit of soul music at the time – often blending modes, musicians, and songs on the Nashville scene of the time. The best example of that approach here is Linda's excellent remake of "Color Him Father" – first made famous by The Winstons – done as a sweet-stepping number with a very different feel than the original. Other tracks include "The Wedding Cake", "Before The Next Teardrop Falls", "Old Letter Song", and "Tender Leaves Of Love". CD

New Johnny AdamsChasing Rainbows – The Tan Canary – New Orleans Soul 1969 to 1981 ... CD
Shout (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
A massive look at the lost years of southern soul singer Johnny Adams – 2CDs worth of music that bring together a wealth of tracks recorded between his initial years on SSS International Records, and his later revival in the 80s on Rounder! These cuts all appeared on much more obscure albums – records issued by the Chelsea, Ariola, and Hep Me labels – none of which ever got much exposure back in the day, but which are wonderfully pulled together here to capture these lost years in Johnny's career! In a way, this material may be some of the best that he ever recorded – as it's got a sense of poise and maturity, but also feels somewhat relaxed and intimate – that stronger sort of sophistication that was bubbling in the undercurrent of southern soul as the 70s moved on. Adams' vocals are impeccable throughout – often crackling with a nice sort of rasp, even when the backings are tight or smooth – and titles include "The Image Of Me", "Chasing Rainbows", "I Can't Believe She Gives It All To Me", "After All The Good Is Gone", "Night People", "Memories", "Stand By Me", "I Can't Be All Bad", "Too Much Pride", "Nothing Takes The Place Of You", "Give Me A Chance", "I Don't Wanna Cry", "Baby Baby I Love You", and "I'll Never Fall In Love Again".
