New Jimmy ForrestMost Much! ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1961. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Gutsy tenor work from Jimmy Forrest – a player who was poised to rival Sonny Stitt and Gene Ammons at the start of the 60s, and who could have easily done so, given the strength of his work for Prestige! The record's one of a few that the St Louis player got to cut for the label – and it's a tightly-crafted combo effort that features Hugh Lawson on piano, Tommy Potter on bass, and Clarendon Johnson on drums – plus a bit of added conga from Ray Barretto, bringing in that extra "kick" that pushed off other great soul jazz sessions from the time! Tracks are short, and have a good focus on Forrest's wonderful tone – and titles include "Sonny Boy", "Annie Laurie", "I Love You", "Most Much", "Soft Winds", "Matilda", and "Autumn Leaves". CD

Sun RaContinuation (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Saturn/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1963. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 19.99
Mindblowing music from Sun Ra & The Arkestra – sounds recorded during the same marathon session that gave the world the records Other Planes Of There, When Sun Comes Out, and When Angels Speak Of Love – but titles that are much more obscure overall! The initial release of the material featured very misleading notes, but the true details of the session are even more impressive – as Ra plays a variety of unusual instruments alongside piano – including the piano strings, space organ, and clavioline – alongside some sublime straight horn work from John Gilmore on tenor, Marshall Allen on alto and oboe, Pat Patrick on baritone, Danny Davis on alto and clarinet, Walter Miller on trumpet, Robert Cummings on bass clarinet, and Ali Hasaan on trombone! The lineup here has that raw power the Arkestra first unleashed after their initial move to New York – almost a sense of new freedom in the new environment – even at a time when they weren't clicking on a financial level, but still continued to push forward with new ideas in music! Some passages have this great approach that links the cosmic ideas of the Arkestra with older traditions of jazz soloing – while others reflect the growing concern of the group with new textures and sounds – making for some very impressive elements on both the horns and percussion. The group is completed by Ronnie Boykins on bass, Art Jenkins on space voice and percussion, and Tommy Hunter on drums, percussion, and some mighty nice reverb – and titles include "Biosphere Blues", "Intergalactic Research", "Earth Primitive Earth", "New Planet", and "Continuation To Jupiter Festival". Beautiful 2CD reissue features sublime sounds from the original tapes, remastered – plus a full bonus CD of unreleased tracks that include "Blue York", "Conversation Of The Universe", "Red Planet Mars", "Cosmic Rays/Next Stop Mars", "The Myth", "Meteor Shower", "Infinity", "The Beginning Of", and "Endlessness".

Bob Wills & His Texas PlayboysRiding Your Way – The Lost Transcriptions For Tiffany Music 1946/1947 ... CD
Real Gone, 1946/1947. New Copy 2 CDs ... $32.99 39.98
An amazing, largely unheard collection of recordings by Bob Wills & His Texas Playboys! If you're not down with the lore, what's now known as The Tiffany Transcriptions is a series of recordings that the western swing pioneers cut for Tiffany Music, Inc. in the mid-to-late 40s, which were intended only for syndicated radio play at the time – but Tiffany went bust shortly thereafter, and a lot of went unheard for years and years. Wills and his Playboys are really at a peak level here – bridging rural dancehall music with swing jazz in landmark fashion and folksy charm. We've always been huge fans of Playboys singer Tommy Duncan, and he's in top form here, - and the set includes some excellent instrumentals, too. It features 50 tracks on 2CDs – 30 of which have never been reissued, or included on earlier Tiffany Transcriptions anthologies – and 20 of the 50 have never been released before now! Includes "Put Another Chair At The Table", "Travelin' Blues", "Bubbles In My Beer", "Detour", "Sliver Dew On The Blue Grass Tonight", "On The Alamo (Instrumental)", "Ragtime Annie (Instrumental)", "Goodnight Little Sweetheart", "I Wonder If You Feel The Way I Do", "She's Gone", "Still Water Runs The Deepest" and many more. Deluxe package, too! CD

VariousSavage Rhythm – Swingin' Dance Floor Sounds To Blow Your Top ... CD
Stag O Lee (Germany), 1930s/1940s. New Copy ... $16.99
A tightly swinging batch of late 30s jazz and nascent rhythm & blues numbers from the early 40s – the pivotal period in which veteran players of the grander swing orchestras of the years prior were paring down into smaller combo – and knocking out a grittier, more primal sound! It's exciting stuff, with jumping rhythms and thumping arrangements, with some well-remembered tunes and comparably forgotten numbers, too. Impeccable stuff, and you can hear the groundwork being laid for the R&B and bebop to come! Includes "House Rent Party Day" by Louis Prima & His New Orleans Gang, "Shout, Sister Shout" by Tiny Bradshaw, "Loose Lid Special" by Tommy Dorsey, "Traffic Jam" by Artie Shaw, "I Never Knew" by Big Sid Cartlet, "Chicken Rhythm" by Slim Galliard & His Flat Foot Floogie Boys, "Ridin' & Jivin'" by Earl Hines & His Orchestra, "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles" by Gene Krupa & His Chicago All Stars and more. 24 tracks in all!

New Tommy Boyce & Bobby HartI Wonder What She's Doing Tonite (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
A&M (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brilliant 60s pop from the team of Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart – best known for their key early songwriting work for The Monkees, but a heck of a great duo on their own! Boyce & Hart have a sparkly, sunshiney sound that's very much a part of The Monkees generation – a beautiful post-folk, post-surf blend of styles, and one that's served up with all the warmth and charm that made The Monkees so great – yet also with some cool twists and turns that make a record like this so great – the kind of chance-taking that A&M sometimes allowed its artists to take at the time! Backings are super-groovy – arranged by Artie Butler and Don McGinis – and titles include "I Wonder What She's Doing Tonite", "Teardrop City", "I Wanna Be Free", "The Countess", "Population", and "Two For The Price Of One" – a great cover of a Larry Williams & Johnny Watson soul tune! Features bonus mono single tunes – "The Ambushers", "Love Every Day", "Where Angels Go Trouble Follows", and "I Wanna Be Free". CD

New VariousEra Records & West Coast Northern Soul – 28 Soul Gems From The Hollywood Dancefloor ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Northern Soul from the west coast – a batch of rare singles pulled from the Era Records label, plus some previously-unissued tracks as well! Era was one of the first companies to really dive into soul on the LA scene of the early 60s – an imprint that also handled a fair bit of pop at the time, but was also more than willing to give a lot of local artists their chance to shine! Era productions were always top-shelf, which means that most of the tracks here have the sort of tight groove and romping rhythms you'd expect from Detroit material at the time – especially given that the Northern Soul experts at Outta Sight hand-picked all the tracks for the set. Previously unreleased tracks include "Hang On" by Jesse Davis and "Chico's Lament" by Chico Barber – and other tracks include "I've Arrived" by Jewel Akens, "Exit Loneliness Enter Love" by Tommy Mosley, "There's Nothing Else To Say" by The Incredibles, "If The World Only Knew" by Dee Dee Dorety, "Lucky Is My Name" by Bruce Cloud, "River Of Salt" by Ketty Lester, "With These Hands" by The Wonders, "I Want A Boyfriend" by The Soul-Mates, "Walk With Me" by Celia Marie, and "Sales Pitch" by Tommy T & The Targets.

New VariousSwamp Pop By The Bayou – Strollers, Happy Rockers & The Old Tearjerker From The Swamps ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A diverse batch of bayou-bred pop and rock from the late 50s and early 60s – rare treasures from the urban scenes and swampy areas of Louisiana and Texas by Bobby Webb, Warren Storm, Tommy Strange, Rocket Morgan and others – backed by groups that include The Blue Notes, The Blue Kings, Boogie Knights, Krazy Kats and more! There's a pronounced southern boogie and R&B influence to most of the tunes here – with jivey rhythms and boogie woogie piano among the common traits – but beyond that connection, there's a bunch of different styles at play here, from swampy rock to dance pop, most with charismatic singers out front. Includes "Sneakin' Home" by Vince Anthony with The Blue Notes, "Tell Me" by Bobby Webb & The Jets, "Oh Oh Baby" by Warren Storm, "Good Lovin'" by John Fred, "Lonely Lonely Heart" by Tommy Strange, "You Jezebel" by Guitar Jeff, "Cry Your Heart Out" by Donny Williams & The Blue Notes, "Rose Marie" by Buck Rogers & His Jets, "Down In New Orleans" by John Fred & The Playboys and more. 28 tracks all.
