New Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassHerb Alpert's Ninth ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1967. Used .... $5.99
Wonderfully jaunty and jagged work from trumpeter Herb Alpert – and a session that has him opening up the Tijuana Brass groove a bit more than usual! There's clearly an influence here of the Brazilian sound that was showing up strongly at A&M Records at the time – heard to greatest effect on the album's version of Chico Buarque's "A Banda", but also in gentler, more subtle ways that seem to emerge in other tunes that trade the group's older sound for one that has more of a bossa sense of subtlety. Also, there's some great A&M pop that's beginning to emerge here too – as in the album's great takes on "The Happening" and "Love So Fine" – both of which really sound beautiful here! Other tracks include "Cowboys & Indians", "Flea Bag", "Love Nest", and "Bud". CD

Herb Alpert with Lani HallSteppin' Out ... CD
Shout Factory, 2013. New Copy Gatefold .... $14.99 15.98
A great groove from Herb Alpert – and a set that almost returns him back to his best fusion styles of the 70s! Lani Hall's billed on the title of this one, but only sings on a handful of tracks – leaving most of the set to focus on Herb's sweet trumpet lines, out front of backings that often have a core jazzy style with sweet electric touches! If you dig Herb from his "Rise" years, you'll find plenty to love here – on titles that include "Jacky's Place", "Our Song", "Green Lemonade", "Cote D'Azur", "It's All In The Game", "And The Angels Sing", "Migration", and "Oblivion".

John ColtraneJohn Coltrane – The Bethlehem Years (Winner's Circle/Art Blakey Big Band) ... CD
Bethlehem/Shout Factory, 1957. Used 2CD .... $7.99
The complete recordings done by John Coltrane for Bethlehem Records – mostly cut during December of 1957, and issued on the albums The Winner's Circle and Art Blakey Big Band! Both albums were a bit unusual for the label – in that The Winner's Circle was sort of a blowing/jam session type record, cut with some of the big poll winners of the year, but with shorter tracks than the usual Prestige-styled set of that nature. The lineup includes Donald Byrd, Al Cohn, Eddie Costa, Oscar Pettiford, and Philly Joe Jones – and Coltrane's a bit buried in the group, but gets out some nice licks from time to time. The second set of tracks was recorded for a unique big band session led by Art Blakey – featuring a core group with Coltrane, Donald Byrd, Walter Bishop Jr, and Wendell Marshall on some tracks – plus a larger lineup on a number of others. The CD brings together a whopping 27 tracks from these sessions, including some great alternate takes – and titles include "Midriff", "Tippin", "The Outer World", "The Kiss Of No Return", "Pristine", and "Oasis" – a previously unreleased track!

New English BeatI Just Can't Stop It (with bonus track) ... CD
IRS/Shout Factory, 1980. New Copy .... $5.99 11.98
The first album from The English Beat – and not only is it one of the most essential of the English ska revival era of the late 70s and early 80s – it's one the most enduring records of 1980 in any genre! The English Beat, like the best of their peers, used ska and rocksteady inspiration to fuel their own contemporary UK sound – and it sounds great to this day! The rhythms are tighter and punchier here than on later records, with some pop, mod and soul lacing their songwriting and vocal. A landmark! Includes "Mirror In The Bathroom", "Hands Off. . .She's Mine", "Twist & Crawl", "Big Shot", "Best Friend", "Jackpot" and more. This 2012 CD version also includes "Ranking Full Stop" – which wasn't on the original UK release. CD

New English BeatSpecial Beat Service (with bonus tracks) ... CD
IRS/Shout Factory, 1982. New Copy .... $5.99 11.98
The third album from The English Beat and another step further away from their rougher roots – which may not have sat well with strident fans of their earlier, punchier ska revival sounds – but it stands up today as one of the most timeless leftfield pop albums of the early 80s! The Beat never discarded their calypso, ska, rocksteady inspirations, they simply expanded upon them – and there's plenty of hooky, catchy songcraft on Special Beat Service – as well as the uncommonly soulful pop of songs like "Save It For Later"! Other tracks include "I Confess", "Jeanette", "Sorry", "Sole Salvation", "She's Going", "End OF The Party", "Ackee 1 2 3" and more. This 2012 CD version has 4 bonus tracks: "What's Your Best Thing", "March Of The Swivel Heads", "Cool Entertainer" and "A Go Talk (Tappy Luppy Dub)". CD

Gladys Knight & The PipsClaudine/Pipe Dreams ... CD
Buddah/Shout Factory, 1974/1976. New Copy .... $10.99 13.98
A great 2-in-1 from Gladys Knight & The Pips – the Claudine and Pipe Dreams soundtracks back to back on a single CD! Claudine is a wonderful mid 70s set from Gladys Knight & The Pips – a soundtrack date written and produced by Curtis Mayfield, who really helps bring a lot of depth to their music! Curtis really helps Knight and the group get out of some of their hit cliches of the 70s, and find some hipper space for the setting of the film – a mixture of some of the mellower tracks that Gladys' always sparkles on, mixed with some badder-stepping numbers that further deepen the groove – and which has kept the album alive over the years, thanks to some key hip hop samples. Tracks include the sublime "The Makings Of You", plus "Mr Welfare Man", "To Be Invisible", "Claudine Theme", "On and On", and "Hold On". After hitting big as a singer on the soundtrack for Claudine, Gladys Knight finally got her chance in front of the camera for Pipe Dreams – a record that featured her both as the star on film and on the soundtrack! The styles here are a bit more wider-ranging than the usual 70s soundtrack of this type – a bit of ballad soul, mellow numbers, and more – arranged by Dominic Frontiere and Michael Masser in styles that are a bit like some of Knight's own albums of the time. We like especially the jazzy vocalesey number "Pot Of Jazz", a nice number that deserves further discovery on a compilation – and other cuts include "Find A Way", "Follow My Dreams", "So Sad The Song", and "Alaskan Pipeline".

Charles MingusModern Jazz Symposium Of Music & Poetry (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Bethlehem/Shout Factory, 1957. New Copy .... $3.99 13.99
A fantastic album – one of our favorite-ever records from Charles Mingus! The album was recorded in the same breath as his legendary works Tijuana Moods, The Clown, and Pithecanthropus Erectus – and it features the same sort of fire and emotion that made those classics so great. The group alone is amazing – with Horace Parlan on piano, Shafi Hadi on alto and tenor, Jimmy Knepper on trombone, and the amazing Clarence (aka Gene) Shaw on trumpet – all getting plenty of room to open up on the album's longer tracks! The work bristles with a sense of imagination and dark energy that Mingus hardly had in his music in later years – and each new tune brings a fresh sense of vision that never fails to astound us! In keeping with the "poetry" title, the album begins with an incredible 12 minute track "Scenes in the City" – which features a long spoken bit written by Langston Hughes about one man's love of jazz and the way that it affects his life in the city – all supported with excellent instrumentation from the group. Other titles are instrumental, and include "Nouroog", "New York Sketchbook", "Slippers", and "Duke's Choice". CD also features 3 bonus tracks – "Woody N You", "Billie's Bounce", and an alternate take of "Slippers". CD

Richard PryorNo Pryor Restraint – Life In Concert (7CDs/2DVDs) ... CD
Shout Factory, Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 7 CDs & 2 DVDs .... $64.99 99.98
A massive collection of classic Richard Pryor – in a box set that spans the best years of his career, and pulls together some of his greatest material ever – plus rare and unreleased bits! This is probably the best and most ambitious set of Richard's work that's ever been put together – especially considering that it features recordings from different record labels – particularly Laff, Stax and Warner. The 7 CDs feature the best bits from comedy albums released on those labels from 1968 to 1983 – including Richard Pryor, 'Craps' (After Hours), That N**er's Crazy, Is It Something I Said?, Bicentennial N**er, Wanted/Richard Pryor – Live In Concert, Live On The Sunset Strip and Here And Now – plus rare bits that have only ever been released on hard-to-find compilations and more – with nearly 2 hours of previously unreleased material. The 2 DVDs feature 3 complete classic concert films: Live In Concert, Live On The Sunset Strip and Here And Now. Last, but not least, it comes with a deluxe booklet with rare photos, essays, discography, filmography and more more! CD

New Donny HathawayDonny Hathaway Live/In Performance ... CD
Atco/Shout Factory, 1972/1980. New Copy 2CD .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Both Donny Hathaway concert albums in a single set – both on US CD for the first time! CD 1 features Donny Hathaway Live – massively beautiful work from the legendary Donny! After two studio albums that had firmly put him on the map as one of the 70s best soul talents, Atco had the genius to have Donny record this live album before very enthusiastic crowds in Hollywood and New York. The result is one of the best soul albums ever – one that shows a totally different side of Donny, and which has him jamming with a smaller, hipper, jazz-oriented group in long versions of some of his best tracks. Features a massive 12 minute version of "The Ghetto", which has loads of excellent instrumental breakdowns, a 13 minute version of "Voices Inside (Everything Is Everything)", a superior version of the track "Little Ghetto Boy", which was only ever on a soundtrack, and covers of "What's Going On" and "Jealous Guy" that really transform them from the original versions. Very similar to the classic Curtis Mayfield 2LP live set on Curtom – and with a similar "Chicago studio soulster goes jazzy and intimate" feel. In Performance was issued after Donny's untimely death, and features rare live material from his classic years – most recorded during the same concerts on Donny Hathaway Live! As the fame of his first concert album will attest, Donny's an extremely wonderful live performer, with a wealth of talents that show that his studio work is only half the picture of his soulful creativity. Includes a great version of "Sack Full Of Dreams", plus "Nu-Po", "Song For You", "I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know", and "To Be Youg, Gifted, & Black". 2CD set features new remastering too – better than ever!

New Otis ReddingComplete Stax/Volt Single Collection (3CD set) ... CD
Stax/Shout Factory, Mid 60s. New Copy 3 CDs .... Out Of Stock
A massively cool collection of work from the legendary Otis Redding – a set that brings together every single that Otis cut for Stax Records, plus a number of posthumous tracks issued on Atlantic too – each presented here with every a and b-side, all in their original mono mixes too! Even if you've got some other Otis Redding in your collection, the package is still pretty darn essential for a number of reasons – not just because it offers up a lot of overlooked b-sides, or because the mono mixes really give the cuts a new sense of raw power – but also because the package traces an evolution of Redding's music in chronological order, and really stands as a true testament to his big steps forward in the short few years he was on this planet! Plus, the package also has a really unique level of presentation – a 7" book-style jacket, which then offers up full color scans of each single included in the set – so that each page you turn is like handling a piece of vintage wax itself. Loads of great tracks throughout – 70 gems that include "Hard To Handle", "Direct Me", "Ooh Carla Ooh Otis", "Snatch A Little Piece", "Johnny's Heartbreak", "That's A Good Idea", "Nock On Wood", "Tramp", "Good To Me", "I'm Sick Y'All", "Respect", "Any Ole Way", "Come To Me", "Hey Hey Baby", and lots lots more!

New James BrownIt's A Mother (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
King/Culture Factory, 1969. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A definite mother from James Brown – the kind of all-funky album that few of his contemporaries could ever hope to match! If you've ever doubted the sheer raw power of James at the end of the 60s, the first few notes of this one will definitely make you a convert – and the stretched-out grooves as the album rolls on will pull you even further into the fold. Most tracks roll on with that improvised studio jamming style that James was hitting at the time – a pre-JBs mode that's not as long as later years, but which still makes you feel that there probably was plenty more recorded on the dates that didn't make it into the two-part versions of the tracks! And although James is singing on most numbers, the real focus is more on the band – hitting hard, vamping sharp, and grooving massively under shouted calls and directions from Brown. Titles include two great instrumentals – "Popcorn With a Feeling" and "Top of the Stack" – plus "Little Groove Maker Me (parts 1 & 2)", "Mother Popcorn (parts 1 & 2)", "Mashed Potato Popcorn (parts 1 & 2)", "Any Day Now", "You're Still Out Of Sight", and "I'm Shook" – as well as the great mellower number "If I Ruled The World" – redone here as an African-American anthem of pride and power!
