Toshiko Akiyoshi-Lew Tabackin Big BandRoad Time ... LP
RCA, 1976. Very Good+ 2LP ... $3.99
A great little live set from the glory days of the Toshiko Akiyoshi/Lew Tabackin Big Band – a series of performances from Japan, recorded in 1976, all featuring the ensemble at its best! The double-length nature of the record takes the group even farther than usual – really letting them stretch out with the kind of bold tones and broad colors that made the group so great. Soloists include Bobby Shew on trumpet, Jimmy Knepper on trombone, and Gary Foster on alto sax – alongside leaders Lew Tabackin on tenor and flute, and Toshiko Akioshi on piano. Titles include a nicely dancing reading of the classic "Warning: Success May Be Hazardous To Your Health" – plus "Kogun", "Henpecked Old Man", "Tuning Up", "Since Perry/Yet Another Tear", and "Soliloquy".

Gene Ammons & Sonny StittTogether Again For The Last Time ... LP
Prestige, 1976. Near Mint- ... $3.99
1973 recording that would become the last that Jug and Stitt did before Jug's untimely death in the mid 70's. Duke Pearson produced it (even though it wasn't for Blue Note), and the group includes Junior Mance on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and either Mickey Roker or Ajaramu on drums. Tracks include "One For Amos", "The Window Pain", "Saxification", and "I'll Close My Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album

New John AndersonTime Will Tell ... LP
Tangerine, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Excellent hard swingin' big band album recorded for Ray Charles' Tangerine label, and with the kind of gutbucket sound you'd expect, if you've heard other releases on the label. The band's filled with great west coast soul jazz players, like Jack Wilson, Harold Land, Lou Blackburn, Bobby Bryant, Teddy Edwards, Walter Benton, and Buddy Collette – and the solos come hard, fast, and searing. Titles include "Flame On The Desert", "Brasilia", "Woman Of Stature", and "The Twister". Very nice stuff, and a record that you might pass up otherwise – but don't, after our recommendation.

Bobby BareHard Time Hungrys ... LP
RCA, 1975. Sealed ... $5.99
A mid 70s album by Bobby Bare – the ambitious, concept-driven Hard Time Hungrys – a worthy effort from one the most unique voices and personalities of his era! This album is heavy with songs written by Bare family friend and frequent songwriting partner Shel Silverstein. Johnny Cash gets all the mainstream attention for collaborating with Shel on "A Boy Named Sue", but Shel and Bare have a far richer collaborative history together. Home For The Hungrys tells the story of the impoverished, with the title track, "Back Home In Huntsville Again", "Bottles And Boxes", "Truck Driver, Truck Driver", "The Unemployment Line" and more.

Count BasieBasie One More Time ... LP
Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $3.99
The genius of Basie meets the genius of Quincy Jones – a 60s pairing that's every bit as great as the 50s pairing of Basie and Neal Hefti! Jones and Basie worked together in a number of settings during the 60s – including a very successful album for Frank Sinatra on Reprise – but here, the pair are really going full-on and hard-swinging, in a fresh style that's got all the hipness of Quincy's budding talent in the 60s, played with the deeply soulful manner of the still-great Basie band of the time. Titles include "Rat Race", "For Lena & Lennie", "The Big Walk", "Meet BB", "Jessica's Day", "Muttnik", and "Quince". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original multi-color bar label pressing, with deep groove. Cover has a split spine, splitting on the top and bottom seams, some pen notes, and edge flaking on the back paste-on.)

Count BasieCount Basie & The Kansas City Three – For The Second Time ... LP
Pablo/OJC, 1975. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A Count Basie trio set – the second meeting of the Kansas City Three, a combo that features Ray Brown on bass an Louis Bellson on drums! Basie's really great here – out front, and moving with modes that are quite different than his fuller group sessions – surprisingly sensitive at points, even though still imbued with all of his trademark swing! Bellson's touch on the kit really helps – punctuating things, while never going too far at all – a nice punch, right when needed – and Ray Brown proves once again that he's just the right fit for just about any combo. Titles include "Racehorse", "Blues For Eric", "Draw", "Sandman", "If I Could Be With You For One Hour Tonight", and "I Surrender Dear". LP, Vinyl record album

Elaine BrownSeize The Time ... LP
Vault, 1969. Very Good- ... $14.99
A righteous treasure from the end of the 60s – an album of vocal tracks recorded by the Minister Of Information for the Black Panther Party, set to backings from the legendary Horace Tapscott! Elaine Brown's less of a soul singer than a powerful speaker who delivers the lyrics with an almost folksy quality – singing boldly and with a sense of power that matches Tapscott's great orchestrations for the record – done in a style that's a fair bit like his Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra work for Nimbus Records, but a bit more inside – given the vocal setting of the record. Titles include "The Meeting", "The Panther", "Assassination", and "Very Black Man". LP, Vinyl record album

James Brown20 All Time Greatest Hits! ... LP
Polydor/Universal, 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $27.99 34.99
Not a classic from the early years of James Brown – but a later greatest hits package that's gone onto have legendary status – given all the key cuts it includes! Most numbers here are the shorter single versions – and together, they pack a hell of a punch – showing an especially strong focus on the best soul and funk years of the legendary Godfather Of Soul! Titles include "I Got You", "Sex Machine (part 1)", "I Got The Feelin", "Mother Popcorn (part 1)", "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag (part 1)", "Think", "Get Up Offa That Thing", "Hot Pants (part 1)", "Superbad (parts 1 & 2)", "Papa Don't Take No Mess (part 1)", "Payback", "Get On The Good Foot", and more!

One of the lesser-known sets in Dave Brubeck's classic "time" series for Columbia – even more inventive than Time Out! Paul Desmond plays alto – and titles include "Travellin Blues", "He Done Her Wrong", "Cassandra", "40 Days", "Time In", and "Lost Waltz". LP, Vinyl record album

Dave BrubeckTime Out ... LP
Columbia, 1959. Very Good+ ... $49.99
Easily the crowning moment of genius for the legendary Dave Brubeck Quartet – the moment when all things came together magically, and the group somehow elevated themselves to a whole new level in jazz! At the time of the set, Brubeck, Paul Desmond, and the rest had already been making plenty of waves with their creative yet swinging approaches to modern jazz – heard on a number of successful albums for Fantasy and Columbia in the 50s. But with this record, they really knocked one out of the park – blending Desmond's cool alto, Brubeck's unusual piano phrasing, Joe Morello's melodic drum work, and Eugene Wright's pulsating bass into a waltzing, almost modal groove that crossed over to many camps at the time! The classics "Take Five" and "Blue Rondo Ala Turk" were both hits on their own – but all titles are great, and include "Kathy's Waltz", "Strange Medow Lark", "Everybody's Jumpin", and "Pick Up Sticks".

New CanRite Time (180 gram vinyl with bonus download) ... LP
Mute, 1989. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 20.98
The last studio album from the legendary Can – recorded at the end of the 80s, and a set that features original vocalist Malcolm Mooney! Mooney's got an undercurrent of funk that really brings a different sound to the groove – almost a sharper edge than some of the smoother currents of the vocals on the few previous records – a mode that seems echoed by the guitar of Michael Karoli and some of the more skittish drum passages from Jaki Liebezeit! Tunes are mostly shortish, but also seem to be these focused answers to the generations that had copped Can's elements and made them their own – especially the British and German indie scenes of the mid/late 80s, who seem to get their come-uppance here by the originals. Titles include "The Withoutlaw Man", "Like A New Child", "Hoolah Hoolah", and "In The Distance Lies The Future". LP, Vinyl record album

Chambers BrothersTime Has Come ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Very Good ... $4.99
One of the biggest albums ever from The Chambers Brothers – a set that helped them cross over big into the mainstream – shaking off their previous folksy roots with a rumbling approach to psychedelic soul! The record's got a much heavier groove than any of the group's previous work – a way of hitting a track that still holds onto their gospel-influenced roots, but which also brings in plenty of the fuzzier, funkier touches that were sparking in soul music during the late 60s – especially over at Columbia Records, where their labelmate Sly Stone was capturing a big audience with a very similar sound. The record features the full-length version of the group's massive "Time Has Come Today", an excellent psychedelic soul number that's been lifted for movies and TV shows more times than we can count – and other tracks include "People Get Ready", "Please Don't Leave Me", "In The Midnight Hour", "What The World Needs Now Is Love", "All Strung Out Over You", "I Can't Stand It", "So Tired", and "Uptown".

Stanley ClarkeTime Exposure ... LP
Epic, 1984. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A nice funky electric groover from Stanley Clarke's mid 80s R&B years! Time Exposure has a lot of period electro funk in the mix, particularly Clarke's impeccable bass lines, which are heavy throughout! A brilliant mix of 80s fusiony future funk with jazz precision – definitely a funky highlight from this period in Clarke's career – and those bass lines are just unreal! A pretty eclectic roster of guest musicians play on this one, including tenor sax player Ernie Watts, fellow bassist Louis Johnson of Brothers Johnson, singer Howard Hewitt and rock guitar guru Jeff Beck. Titles include "Play The Bass 10", "Are You Ready (For The Future)", "Heaven Sent You", "Time Exposure", "Speedball", "Future Shock", "Spacerunner", "I Know Just How You Feel" and more.

New John ColtraneColtrane Time ... LP
United Artists, 1958. Very Good ... $11.99
This is a repackaged version of an album that was originally issued under Cecil Taylor's name, under the title Hard Drive (and later Stereo Drive, or something like that). The record brings together two of the late 50's most promising modernists – Cecil Taylor and John Coltrane – in a group that includes Kenny Dorham, Chuck Israels, and Louis Hayes. The music is a startling mix of styles – as Taylor's heavy piano clashes noisily with Trane's free flowing lines on the tenor. It doesn't always work, but it's well worth a listen, and stands as a critical meeting of two important talents that were both best known on their own. Tracks include "Shifting Down", "Double Clutching", and "Just Friends". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the few albums cut by this oft-overlooked southern soul diva – and one that mixes Muscle Shoals production with some nice uptown touches! Produced by Jerry Williams, Jr., aka Swamp Dogg! While the title comes of a bit flamboyantly, in truth, this record is an honest, personal, and earthy southern soul should-be classic. It's not only a personal triumph for Doris Duke, it's also one of greatest Swamp Dogg-produced records! Includes "I Wish I Could Sleep", "It Sure Was Fun", "He's Everything I Need", "Since I Fell For You", "Let Love Touch Us Now", "Bad Water", and a cool cover of "By The Time I Get To Phoenix".

New Duke Ellington & Count BasieFirst Time – The Count Meets The Duke ... LP
Columbia, 1962. Very Good ... $1.99
Hard to believe it took a few decades in the careers of both players for them to record together – but that's exactly what you've got here – a landmark meeting of Count Basie and Duke Ellington from the early 60s, near the tail end of Duke's classic stretch on Columbia! Teo Macero produced the session with just the right amount of care and class to keep the whole thing from being an exercise in cliche – and there's a surprising amount of depth here that you might not expect – the best modern elements of Duke's orchestra on Columbia, coming into play with a bit more of the fire and vamp of the Basie group at the time! Titles include "Battle Royal", "Wild Man", "Segue In C", "Jumpin At The Woodside", "To You", and "Take The A Train". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, Late 50s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $5.99
Blue Note 2-fer that brings together some of Gil Evans' great modernist jazz pieces for the World Pacific label. The material was all recorded in New York in 1958 and 1959, and the groups include crack jazz players like Steve Lacy, Art Blakey, Cannonball Adderley, Johnn Coles, Elvin Jones, and Evans himself. The tracks are mostly standards, but they're given super-sharp arrangements by Evans, in the style that he was using for some of his work with Miles Davis. They also feature prominent soloists, also as with the Miles work, and titles include "Chant Of The Weed", "Lester Leaps In", "Round Midnight", "Manteca", and "Sruttin With Some Barbeque". 2 LPs, with a good essay on Evans' work.

Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $0.99
Brilliant harmony vocals by the Four Freshman! A jaunty 1964 session that has the Freshmen moving into territory they'd explore more deeply on their work for Liberty Records – expanding into a range of new styles for the 60s, and working here with some nicely groovy arrangements from Jimmie Haskell and Shorty Rogers! There's some nice use of electric bass and guitar on a few tracks – giving them a bit more of a romp than usual – and a few others feature some nicely-recorded tinkling piano that trips alongside the vocals with a breezy 60s edge, including a few with country western tinges. Titles include "Don't Make Me Sorry", "My Baby's Gone", "Charade", "Wake The Town & Tell The People", "Funny How Time Slips Away", "Hold Me", "We've Got A World That Swings", and "Tears In Our Eyes".

Hi Records, 1976. Very Good- ... $2.99
Although the date of this one might make you think that Al's softening it up a bit, that's definitely not the case! If anything, the record's a bit rougher than some of his earlier albums on Hi – with Willie Mitchell still working on production and arrangements, but perhaps not crossing all the T's and dotting all the I's as perfectly as before. Not that that's a bad thing, as the record makes for a great addition to any collection of Al's work – and includes some lesser-known gems that are carried off with a deep sense of soul and emotion. Titles include "Something", "I Tried To Tell Myself", "Keep Me Cryin", "Smile A Little Bit More", "Have A Good Time", "Happy", and a version of "Nothing Takes The Place Of You".

Bunky GreenTestifyin' Time ... LP
Argo, 1965. Very Good- ... $14.99
A really great little record – and one that goes way past the hokey soul jazz reference you might guess from the title! Bunky Green's definitely "testifyin" on the set – but he's really moving past 60s soul jazz cliches, and never falling into some of the too-gospelly notes of some of his contemporaries. Instead, he finds a great space between hardbop, modern jazz, and more soulful moments – all delivered with a hip freshness that's right up there with some of his best contemporaries on the Argo/Cadet label at the time. Thank Chicago for that quality – and the combo on the record, which includes Marshall Thompson on drums, Cleveland Eaton on bass, James Meyer on tenor, and Walter Strickland on trumpet. Titles include "Tamra", "Orbit Six", "My Ship", and "Tweedlee Dee". LP, Vinyl record album

Merle Haggard's affectionate 1969 tribute to the genius of Jimmie Rodgers. For all of his rough, outlaw ways and reactionary moods – particularly in the immediate years after Okie from Muskogee – Merle was also deeply sensitive and respectful of his influences. His voice was never sweeter than on this set of Rodgers tunes – despite the fact the Merle's genius pen didn't write any of the tunes here, this may still be his masterpiece. All of the songs and narration tracks from the original LP are here – 25 in all! LP, Vinyl record album

Smooth mellow soul by Michael Henderson – taking up where he left off with his work with Norman Connors, and proving that he was an even better vocalist than bassist. The overall sound of this one's perhaps a bit slicker than his first 2 albums on Buddah – but there's still some strong modern soul moments, and good production from the Sigma Sound Studios. The best cuts have a smooth mid-tempo groove – not unlike the modern soul coming out of Philly at the time, and perfectly suited to Henderson's jazzy sensibilities. Titles include "Take Me I'm Yours", "Whisper In My Ear", "Am I Special", "One To One", and "In The Night-Time". LP, Vinyl record album

A great set of rare Canadian psych folk from the early 70s – rawly beautiful work that's way too good to have languished in the purgatories of general obscurity and collectors' hopes and dreams! Upon A Once Time is an all acoustic set, a good deal of it just Huckle's airy voice and guitar, plus some fiddle, mandolin and other spare accompaniement. It's warm and inviting songcraft, too, as opposed to some of weirder obscure post-hippie sounds of the period – the kind of record that really deserves an audience! Includes "Upon A Once Time", "April", "Beyonder", "Lady Goldberry", "The Minstrel Song" and "Ocean". LP, Vinyl record album

The group's fronted by keyboardist Reggie McCants, who wrote most of the songs and also sings – and they've got a sound that's professional, but never too slick – very much like one of the few rare combos you might catch in the clubs during these more obscure soul years in Chicago.

There's a sophistication here that's different from most of Jackson's contemporaries on King – almost the mature masculine sound you'd find in Billy Eckstine or Al Hibbler, but which is undercut by more R&B elements too – including some great use of tenor sax alongside the vocals.

Daptone, 2011. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Damn damn damn – maybe the funkiest album ever from Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings! The group have always been great, but there's something here that goes even farther than usual – an especially funky snap on the drums at the bottom, even on more laidback tunes – and a stone classic approach to funky soul, one that's definitely been honed to a "T" through their important work on the road during the previous few years! And Sharon Jones is great – with vocals that are way deeper and much longer-lasting than any rehab outpatient wannabe – sending home these tunes with a quality that may well pass most of her classic female soul inspirations from back in the day. And even though the set brings together some older singles and other odd bits, it's got a rock-solid punch that makes it a very unified album throughout! Titles include "Settling In", "I'm Not Gonna Cry", "When I Come Home", "Ain't No Chimneys In The Projects", "New Shoes", "Without A Trace", and "Inspiration Information". LP, Vinyl record album

Anthony Joseph has always sounded great – but this time around he's got some stellar help from Meshell Ndegeocello – who wrote, arranged, and produced the entire album! The result is the best material we've ever heard from Joseph – a completely righteous record that gives his wonderful vocals a whole new sense of focus and pride – set up in backings that have an even heavier, funkier quality – and which really befits Anthony's 70s-style blend of soul, jazz, and funk! Meshell plays some mighty funky bass on the record, and also sings too – and the instrumentation is served up by a tight combo with a very lean feel. The music is every bit as great on record as it sounds on paper – a really timeless record that's bound to turn on whole new generations to Joseph's music! Titles include "Hustle To Live", "Tamarind", "Heir", "Alice Of The River", "Joy", "Botanique", and "Michael X". LP, Vinyl record album

A nice set that follows the soft southern mode that Knight virtually invented in the early 70s – a style that almost takes the earlier achievements of Aretha Franklin, and redirects them to a hipper, more adult audience for the new decade – and sometimes a crossover one at that! Most of the best tracks here kind of flow out from the bottom – slow burning and gently glowing with a really sort of special magic that few other singers could hope to achieve. Titles include "I'll Be Here", "Oh What A Love I Have Found", "The Singer", "All I Need Is Time", "Heavy Makes You Happy", "The Only Time You Love Me Is When You're Losing Me", and "Here I Am Again".

One of the coolest, grooviest albums we've ever heard from German reedman Rolf Kuhn – a set that not only features a fair bit of tunes penned by Horace Silver – but one that also includes lots of sweet Hammond from the great Ingfried Hoffmann! You might know Hoffman from his excellent work with Klaus Doldinger – and famous MPS and soundtrack appearances too – and here on this early date, he's already at the top of his game – a fast, fluid player who may well be the European scene's answer to Jack McDuff! Kuhn really opens up in Hoffmann's company – and swings his clarinet a lot harder than usual – with a style that's much more mod 60s than previous records. The rest of the group features Herman Schoonderwalt on bass and Cees See on drums – and titles include "Sister Sadie", "Mayreh", "Blowing The Blues Away", "Stop Time", "Hippy", "Bemsha Swing", and "Solar".

After Sinatra famously played Lewis on screen, he furthered his tribute to the tragic figure by taping Joe at the Flamingo Hotel in Vegas – a wonderful live set presented here, with all the raw energy that made Joe a key inspiration for The Rat Pack!

Little FeatTime Loves A Hero ... LP
Warner, 1977. Very Good ... $3.99
A later album from Little Feat – and one that adds some new dimensions to their ever-searching vibe! On Time Loves A Hero, Little Feat takes some surprising steps – even for them – into a bit of a fusiony rock vibe some of the time. Still, the soulful boogie rock and stripped down folky elements they always worked with are still in play. As always, they make these far-flung styles work together into a cohesive whole! Includes "Time Loves A Hero", "Hi Roller", "Old Folks Boogie", "Red Streamliner", "Rocket In My Pocket", "Missin' You", "Day At The Dog Races" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis JrI Hope We Get To Love In Time ... LP
ABC, 1977. Sealed ... $2.99
The first solo album from the team of Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis Jr – and a set that's arguably even more soulful than their work together in The 5th Dimension! The pair are lucky to have Groovesville soul maestro Don Davis at the helm – helping them hit a more mature, more contemporary sound that mixes equal parts club rhythms with some of the smoother styles of the late 5th Dimension years. McCoo's vocals are especially wonderful – classy, but always quite heartfelt – at a level that almost comes across like some of the best Philly International vocalists of the same period – especially on the soaring disco numbers! Titles include "You Can't Change My Heart", "You Don't Have To Be A Star", "We've Got To Get It On Again", "Easy Way Out", "My Love For You", and "I Hope We Get To Love In Time".

Jack McDuffGoodnight, It's Time To Go (aka Sanctified!) ... LP
Prestige, 1961. Very Good ... $14.99
A pivotal album for Brother Jack McDuff – and one that has him cleaning the sound of his Hammond a bit – moving into the lean, clear tone that would dominate his work for most of the 60s! There's a great sense of focus here – one that moves past simple R&B-influenced organ lines, and into a more confident jazz-based mode – one that's starting to unlock the unique rhythm and solo inflections that made McDuff so great. The group here is excellent too – with a very young Grant Green on guitar, Harold Vick on tenor, and Joe Thomas on drums. The tracks are long, with some nice flourishes that make the record shine nicely – and titles include "I'll Be Seeing You", "McDuff Speaking", "A Smooth One", and "Sanctified Waltz".

Stephanie MillsFor The First Time ... LP
Motown, 1975. Sealed ... $5.99
A really unusual album from the young Stephanie Mills – not only because it captures the singer at a wonderful early point in her career, when she was still open to a rich range of expression – but also because the whole thing was written and produced by the team of Burt Bacharach and Hal David – who almost work with Mills as a 70s update of their classics with Dionne Warwick! Yet the sound here is also different – deeper in that nicely matured way that Burt had brought to his own great albums and special projects of the time – with these sensitive emotional moments that are a real surprise from Mills, especially as she could have just been phoning it in at this point. Backings are definitely Bacharach-like, but nicely subtle too – again like the direction Burt himself was going at the time – and titles include "No One Remembers My Name", "Loneliness Remembers (What Happiness Forgets)", "This Empty Place", "The Way I Fell About You", and "All The Way To Paradise".

This one's a pretty open-ended blowing date – one that gives both horn players plenty of room to stretch out, in a setting that's filled with sharp-edged, and imaginative lines! The rhythm section is rock solid too – with Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and the great Charlie Persip on drums – kicking things nicely on the kit to get a groove going.

Art Yard/Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
Amazing grooves like you've never heard before – the seminal sides by Salah Ragab and his Cairo Jazz Band! As you can probably guess from their name, the ensemble was an Egyptian one – working at the end of the 60s in an incredible blend of jazz and more traditional Egyptian-styled sounds – a blend that comes across with all the exotic feel of the pyramids at dawn, but which manages to groove like some of the best funky work from America at the time! Instrumentation includes lot of percussion, heavy piano and horns, and some especially great flute on most tracks – all coming together with a sound that's unlike anything else we've heard before. This collection is the first time that this music has been brought together officially, all with the kind of top-shelf production and packaging we've come to expect from the Art Yard label! LP version includes the tracks "Egypt Strut", "Ramadan In Space Time", "Dawn", "Neveen", "Oriental Mood", "Kleopatra", and "Mervat". LP, Vinyl record album

The group features some nice tenor work by a young Hadley Caliman, and groovy organ by Henry Caine – all of which sets Della's vocals in a much nicer groove than on some of her other albums from the 60s. Tracks include "So Nice", "Good Times", "Big City", and "Don't You Know" – and many tracks are preceded by a hip monologue, in a manner that's similar to that used on some of the best Lou Rawls albums for Capitol.

A great little album from Max Roach – one that has him finding a whole new voice in jazz! The set was recorded on the heels of Max's time with Clifford Brown – and it's a great little album that has him bouncing back nicely from the loss by moving into a new realm that shows off his more lyrical side! The group on the album features Kenny Dorham, Sonny Rollins, Billy Wallace, and George Morrow – and as you'd guess by the title, most tunes are in a jazz waltz mode, which gives them a nicely dancing quality, soft and a bit exotic – almost modal at times – and a nice change from Roach's more full-on hardbop style of the Clifford Brown years. Titles include "Little Folks", "Lover", "The Most Beautiful Girl In the World", and "Blues Waltz". LP, Vinyl record album

Even though the motivation behind the album was a bit mercenary, though, it's a nice thing that it came out – as these tracks are very nice, and feature Rollins playing some excellent pre-retirement hardbop. Some of the cuts feature a quartet with Sonny Clark on piano, and others have Rollins in the Kenny Dorham Quintet (one of which even has some additional harp playing!) with Oscar Pettiford, Hank Jones, and Max Roach.

Most tracks kick along with that great rolling bass sound that the group practically invented – and which has been their everlasting legacy to mainstream funk – and Steve Arrington's still in the group on lead vocals, really hitting some soaring notes that help the tunes groove even more. Titles include "Party Lites", "Snap Shot", "Smokin", "Wait For Me", "Funken Town", and "Steal Your Heart". LP, Vinyl record album

New Percy SledgeTake Time To Know Her ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good- ... $14.99
It's hard to imagine a more perfect 60s southern soul album – the legendary vocals of Percy Sledge mixed with classic Muscle Shoals production from Quin Ivy – all wrapped around a host of hip tunes that go way past the easy 60s soul hits! The formula here is similar to that cooked up by Otis Redding on Stax, but it goes perhaps a few steps more – relaxing into its own confidence, and hitting an easy, open approach to the material that's neither too "stock", nor too slick. And although Otis first started the groove, Percy really helps push it forward strongly on this record – by bringing a deepening spirit and new sophistication to the music that would help it thrive greatly into the 70s. Many tracks are written by the team of Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham, including "I Love Everything About You", "Out Of Left Field", and "Feed the Flame" – and other titles include "Sudden Stop", "Baby Help Me", "Cover Me", "Between These Arms", and "High Cost Of Leaving".

At their core, the quintet work in a sunny way that's not unlike other pop acts – but the key difference here is that they're getting some incredible production and arrangements from James William Guerico, working in a pre-Chicago mode that has complicated horn charts pushing up brightly underneath the vocals – edging the whole mix way up into the stratosphere with a uniquely soaring sound! Other instrumentation is great too – bright, but never slick, and really complementing the vocals perfectly.

Heavy bass, tight percussion, and a wonderfully trippy groove – the stunning second album from Cymande, and one of our funk favorites from the 70s! These guys have a sound that's completely unique – a vibe that mixes African and Jamaican influences up in the heady London scene of the early 70s – with results that were years ahead of their time, and which still go onto blow many minds all these years later! The bass alone is worth the price of admission – as dubby as anything from Kingston, but with a tighter focus – one that drives some sinister lines from the vocals, and which gets strong support from lots of lively conga passages. There's a slight stoner undercurrent, but the sound of the set is never sleepy at all – and titles include the classic "Anthracite", "Fug", and "Them & Us" – plus "Genevive", "Willie's Headache", "For Baby Ooh", "Bird", and "Crawshay".

Enigmatic folk rock and soulful bluesy vocals from Karen Dalton – her legendary lost 1971 album that's credited with inspiring some the most idiosyncratic work by folk rock superstars and contemporary freak folk heroes alike! Karen was a fixture on the 60s NY folk scene – Dylan even gives her props in his Chronicles Vol 1 memoirs – but she rarely recorded. Her voice carries a huge Billie Holiday influence – but the delivery is wholly unique in her earthy folk phrasing, a real dip back into Harry Smith territory. Her guitar and banjo picking is strong, too! In My Own Time was recorded for Paramount at the end of 1970 and beginning of '71, with really rich and surprisingly soulful backing on an interesting selection of material written or popularized by Dylan & The Band, George Jones, Paul Butterfield, and even a folksy soul take on "When A Man Loves A Woman". Light In The Attic shines a huge light for this reverential reissue – pristinely remastered with notes by Lenny Kaye, Nick Cave and Devendra Banhart. Other tracks include "Something On Your Mind", "In My Own Dream", the traditional "Katie Cruel", "One Night Of Love" and "Are You Leaving For The Country". LP, Vinyl record album

New MazeGolden Time Of Day ... LP
Capitol, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent work from Frankie Beverly and Maze! The record is one of the group's best, and has a wonderful mellow groove that's totally on the money on nearly every cut – a mature, sophisticated approach to soul that really made Maze a standout act at the end of the 70s! There's a slight jazzy vibe running through most of the record, supported with warmly flowing grooves, impeccable songwriting, and great vocals from Frankie all the way through. Titles include the excellent track "Golden Time Of Day", one of those slinky modern soul midtempo numbers that were one of the best things about the late 70s soul years – plus the tunes "I Need You", "I Wish You Well", and "Travelin Man".

New Mighty Clouds Of JoyIt's Time ... LP
ABC, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Forget the group's gospel roots, because this is an excellent album of 70s soul, with a sound that's a lot more secular than you'd expect! Dave Crawford produced and wrote, and Wade Marcus arranged, with a sweet harmony style that's perfectly forged in the Sigma Studios during the glory days of the mid 70s. With help from Norman Harris, Bobby Eli, Vince Montana, Ronnie Baker, and Earl Young, the album sounds more like some crossover classic on Philly International or Atlantic than one of the rootsier gospel albums that ABC was releasing at the time. A good precursor to their disco fame, with the cuts "Stoned World", "Time", "Mighty Cloud Of Joy", "The Master Plan", and "Heart Full Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album

New Thelonious MonkIt's Monk Time (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite Thelonious Monk albums ever – a bare bones, no nonsense session that's filled with great work from tenorist Charlie Rouse! The record's filled with everything that's great about the Monk/Rouse team in these years – an incredible interplay between sax and piano, served up over the sorts of angular tunes that Monk had been putting forth for years, but somehow at a level that's even more perfect, more "Monkish" than before! Other members of the group are Butch Warren on bass and Ben Riley on drums – and titles include "Lulu's Back In Town", "Memories Of You", "Brake's Sake", "Stuffy Turkey", and "Shuffle Boil".

New MonksBlack Time (Black Monk Time) ... LP
Polydor, 1966. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The one astounding studio album of proto punk/abrasive psych genius from the Monks – a true masterpiece if their ever was one, a record that's been ripped off by myriad more famous groups in both the mainstream and rock underground of the past 40 years! The group's status as discharged G.I.'s informs some of spewed vitriol, but beyond that there's little connection to any trends or scenes, the Monks are true originals in a world of imitators, and that adds a layer of excitement to an already mind blowing listen. The album's wild organ washes, primitive drums and guitar, and harsh, bizarre vocal rants prefigured everything from the Stooges, to Rocket From The Tombs, to the more predictable punk stuff that arrived 18 years later – yet it still grooves. Outrageous and incredible! 16 tracks in all: "Monk Time", "Shut Up", "Boys And Boys And Girls And Girls", "Higgle-Dy-Piggle-Dy", "I Hate You", "We Do Wie Do", "Drunken Maria", "Blast Off", "That's My Girl", "Cuckoo", "Love Can Tame The Wild", "He Went Down To The Sea" and more!

New Larry NozeroTime (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Strata/180 Proof, 1974. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet reeds and lots of Fender Rhodes – a lost 70s album from the Detroit underground, and one of the best-ever sets from saxophonist Larry Nozero! Larry's working here in close collaboration with keyboardist Dennis Tini – whose Rhodes and Clavinet work really make the album sparkle, giving the whole thing a spacey sound that really suits Larry's long-spun lines on flute, tenor, and soprano sax! The style is mellow, yet never sleepy – a vibe that's even deeper than the CTI sound at its best, and served up here with an underground style that really keeps a sharp edge throughout. Added strings seep into the mix at times, almost giving the record a soundtrack vibe at points – but most of the best action is from the interplay of Nozero and Tini, who dominate nearly every tune. Tini uses overdubs to create these scatting voices at a few points – and titles include "Tony", "Chronicle Of The Murdered House", "Tune For LN", "Two Worlds", "All The Things You Are", and "Impressions Of My Lady". LP, Vinyl record album
