BreakawayBreakaway/Right On To The Top ... CD
Breakaway/BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
A pair of completely rare albums from Breakaway – a St Louis combo from the late 70s – with a groove that's equal part jazzy club and blue-eyed soul! Breakaway is the group's debut – recorded in 1977 with a surprisingly tight sound – especially given that the group were essentially a local club act who got the chance to record a bit in a local studio! The feel is very much in the best LA mode of the time, but maybe a bit looser too – with emphasis on some funky riffing from the male members of the group, plus sweet lead vocals from singer Kathy Newbry-Taylor – an artist who might have been pop, had she worked on the coasts – but who stretches her style nicely here. The album's been made famous by both On Track and Americana comps on BBE – and titles include "There's A New Group In Town", "Who Was It This Time", "Love My Eyes", "Understudy DJ", "Everything's Been Said About You", and "My Symphony". Right On To The Top is the second set from Breakaway – and the album already shows a great deal of growth – especially in the territory of rhythm! Breakaway have definitely dug some of the best club modes from the New York scene – and work here in a jazzy disco style that's filled with sweet keyboard lines alongside the female lead vocals – all with a vibe that's nicely stripped-down, and still lives up to the indie spirit of the group. The set features some guest work on horns, which nicely expands the sound – and titles include "Straight On To The Top", "You Are Love", "Back & Forth", "There's A New Tree In The Forest", "Work With The Music", and "Breakaway".

Nagaoka (Japan), New Copy ... $4.99
A cool open-top plastic sleeve for storing your CDs! This one works like the LP and 45 sleeves we stock – in that the plastic hugs your CD package on the front and back, and on the sides and bottom – but the top is open, so you can slide out the jewel case for easy access when listening! There's no flap at all to get in the way – and the sleeves are great if you store your CDs on shelves vertically, and don't like the outside cases to get scratched up. This version fits a range of multi-disc packages – including older-styled jewel cases that handle 2 to 4 CDs, and most of the contemporary larger slipcover styled CD packages too. Record Care

New Paul ChambersBass On Top ... CD
Blue Note, Late 50s. Used ... $7.99
One of the most obscure of the Paul Chambers albums on Blue Note – and one of the most interesting as well! Although best known for his solid rhythm work on late 50s hardbop recordings, Chambers breaks out here with a more introspective, more exploratory style on the bass – using the instrument "on top", as a lead solo force in a group with Kenny Burrell on guitar, Hank Jones on piano, and Art Taylor on drums. The sound is surprisingly soulful, and modern yet swinging – in the manner of Oscar Pettiford's best sides of this style. Titles include "Yesterdays", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "Confessin", and "The Theme". CD

Van McCoy arranged and produced, and the LP includes their single "Hey, What's That Dance You're Doing", plus "Two Different Worlds", "Mysterious Lady", "Beautiful Glow", "Come Down To Earth", and "Everybody's Got A Story".

First PlanetTop Of The World/I Want To Thank You Baby ... 12-inch
Voodoo Funk (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... $16.99
Sweet Lagos disco from First Planet – two clubby cuts from the 70s, served up in a mighty special package! "Top Of The World" has this snapping sort of vibe that's like a great post-disco cut from the US – a bit of funk and club mixed together, with very cool processing on the lyrics that almost bring in some slight Miami elements as well! "I Want To Thank You Baby" follows with even a stronger Miami vibe – lots of spacey keyboards over riffing guitars and fast drums – almost like some lost 12" single from the vaults of TK Records! 12-inch, Vinyl record

FusionTop Soul ... CD
Alba/Lion, 1975. New Copy ... $12.99
Top Soul indeed, as Fusion is a hip Chilean funk band from the early 70s – one who take plenty of influence from American grooves, but also bring in their own soulful elements as well! The sound here is somewhere between Kool & The Gang and Banda Black Rio – with quite a bit of the blend of the latter, especially in the way more local percussion riffs fill out grooves that have a solid grounding in American funk! Instrumentation listed is tenor, guitar, keyboards, bass, and drums – but there's clearly a lot more horns too, as well as some very hip percussion – played in ways that are almost more Brazilian than straight Latin – with a really fluid sensibility that jams nicely with the grooves. There's a slight bit of vocals on the record, but most of the album is instrumental – and titles include versions of Sly Stone's "Thank You" and The Crusaders "Way Back Home" – plus "Dedos", "Balada De Matias", "Dee Blooz", "Para Toda La Gente", "Pulsearas", and "Lamentation".

Ahmad JamalPoinciana Revisisted – Ahmad Jamal At The Top ... LP
Impulse, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99
Wonderful open-ended Ahmad Jamal music from the end of the 60s – and a set that really shows his growth as a player at the time! The "revisited" in the title refers to Jamal's earlier success on Argo records with a recording of "Poinciana" – one that forever made the tune his, thanks to a long-flowing approach that took the familiar standard, and turned it into the perfect foil for Jamal's expressive piano style. But the vibe here is very different – even more open than before, with a beautiful 9 minute reworking of the tune that's worth the price of admission alone! The trio features Jamil Sulieman on bass and Frank Gant on drums – and titles include "Poinciana", "Call Me", "Lament", "How Insensitive", and "Have You Met Miss Jones". LP, Vinyl record album

Little Buck & The Top CatsDon't Make Me Cry/Cat's Back ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy ... $7.99
A really rare one from Little Buck – although all of his singles are plenty darn rare! "Don't Make Me Cry" has a very special sort of sound – Buck's raw soul vocals mixed with an overall feel that's maybe more sweet soul structure overall – almost as if a deep soul singer was singing on a tune by Sam Cooke! The hook is great, and the Top Cats really hold the groove – and get a chance to shine even more on the flipside, which is an instrumental with cascading horns and drums! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Idris MuhammadBoogie To The Top ... LP
Kudu, 1977. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Quite different than Idris' funky drumming on early 70s jazz records – but not a bad little album on its own terms. As you'd guess by the title, the album's more of a disco/club effort than before, but thanks to some good arrangements by Dave Matthews – who'd worked some good magic with other Kudu artists, as well as James Brown – the funk component's still pretty high. Most tracks have vocals, and the record's got long drawn-out funk tracks with a lot of electric keyboards and wah-wah guitar work. Titles include "One With A Star", "Boogie To The Top", "Bread", and "Stick It In Your Face". LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny StittSonny Stitt & The Top Brass (Jazzlore) ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A heck of a great little record – one that shouldn't work so well, but it does! For the set, Sonny Stitt's blowing in front of a larger brass section – and while the prospect of a Sonny Stitt big band record might not sound that great at first, this one really kicks, largely because of Sonny's great solo work! Stitt's in perfect form by this point – blowing freely above a core brass group that features Blue Mitchell, Jimmy Cleveland, and Willie Ruff – arranged tightly by Tadd Dameron and Jimmy Mundy, yet still given enough room to swing with a heck of a lot of soul! Also quite nice is the organ work on the set by the obscure female player Perri Lee – a great little groover with a lean sound that cuts through the arrangements and really makes them sparkle! Titles include "Souls Valley", "On A Misty Night", "Stittsie", "Poinciana", "Sea Sea Rider", and "The Four Ninety". LP, Vinyl record album

Ernie WilkinsTop Brass Featuring The 5 Trumpets ... CD
Savoy, 1955. Used ... $9.99
Hard-swingin tracks from Ernie Wilkins – one of the most soulful arrangers of his time, working here in a wonderful all-star session from the 50s! The album's definitely got the "top brass" promised in the title – a lineup that features Donald Byrd, Ray Copeland, Idrees Sulieman, and Joe Wilder on trumpets – all working at a level that allows plenty of space for well-blown solos, but tied up in tighter ensemble formation overall – all with that Wilkins sense of swing that really set Ernie apart at the time. Rhythm is from a trip that includes Hank Jones on piano, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Kelly Clarke on drums – and titles include "58 Market Street", "Trick Or Treat", "Speedway", "Dot's What", "Top Brass", "Imagination", and "Willow Weep For Me". CD features 2 bonus tracks: "Blues In 6/4" and "Trumpets All Out". CD

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!

New Chuck BerryChuck Berry Is On Top ... LP
Chess, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Chuck Berry is definitely on top with this classic Chess Records set – an album that shows that Berry always had a lot more to offer than some of his oldies rocker contemporaries! Sure, there's a few hits here, but the overall quality of the music is more in the mode of Chess blues of the time – lots of raw backings that are as heavy on piano lines and romping rhythms as they are Chuck's own searing lead guitar – a sound that definitely sets the tone for generations to come, and which is always heard best here in its early hoke-free setting. The whole album's wonderful, and even familiar hits sound newly brilliant in this context – a smoking lineup that includes "Jo Jo Gunne", "Around & Around", "Hey Pedro", "Anthony Boy", "Sweet Little Rock & Roller", "Almost Grown", "Roll Over Beethoven", and "Maybellene".

James doesn't sing soul, so much as jazz – in front of large backings by Louis Bellson, with arrangements by Oliver Nelson that are in his best 60s soul mode – and which give the album a very very groovy feel overall! The record's not funky, but James' vocals are plenty darn soulful – and the album is proof that he could be a huge talent in just about any mode that he chose – shining with a brilliance that was irrepressible! James covers a few of his older tracks on the album, and sings a few other pop standards – and titles include nice versions of "It's Magic", "The Man In The Glass", "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag", "That's My Desire", and "I Need Your Key (To Turn Me On)". CD features the previously unissued bonus track "There Was A Time" – plus the full, unedited versions of 4 other tracks – appearing here for the first time ever! CD

Monguito's different than his old man in that he's a pianist and a singer – and not a percussionist – but this gem of an album has a hard-hitting sound that easily ranks with the best of Mongo's work from the time, and perhaps is even better because it's got a more freewheeling New York Latin sound! The group features a young Rene McLean on alto – blowing nice and soufully – as well as Harvey Hargraves on trumpet and Jose Mangual on bongo – and tracks include some groovy Latin Soul numbers – like "Juicy", "Beans & Greens", "Boogaloo Sabroso", and "Puchi's Boogaloo".

Success-N-EffectFreeze (voc, inst)/Roll It Up (Remix – fat mix, radio, bass kickin' beats) ... 12-inch
On Top, 1989. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Since we couldn't put it any better, here's a quote from Frankie Knuckles off of discogs – "For the first 6 months of my arrival to the U.K. back in the later months of 1989, this was my most treasured track, the one people would remember me for. The vocal "Let The Bass Kick" followed by The Winstons "Amen Brother" breakbeat with a sub 808 that was deadly. Felix Samas edit work was effective on this chopping Big Daddy Kanes Vocal "Let It Roll" (made popular by Doug Lazy) into little bits before crashing into that 808/breakbeat again. Carl Cox would get his copy from Lenny Dee in Feb. 1990 and went and did a white label remix which would result in his ink with Perfecto Records for "I Want U (Forever). After that it became the template for the young U.K. youth who began to experiment in the studio. The end result being Jungle and Drum & Bass. This record was the prototype." 12-inch, Vinyl record

Alex BandEccentric (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Helicon/GAD (Poland), 1980. New Copy ... $16.99
A sublime set from this hip Polish ensemble – a group who got their start in funky fusion, but who really stretch out here in a more sophisticated space too – mixing some of their electric elements with these really beautiful horn passages – arranged at a level that's full of color and life! The approach is a bit like some of the best MPS big bands of the 70s – with some keyboards and electric guitar in the mix, driving the rhythms along – while the skilled lineup of trumpets, trombone, and tenor sax carve out these soulful lines over the top – all at a level that's extremely fresh, very thoughtful, and which almost beats most American jazz of this type from the time! The style is more mid 70s than you'd guess from the date – and the album's a great lost treasure from the overlooked Polish scene. Titles include "Wet Za Wet", "Sam Na Manhattanie", "Switaniec", "Hispanzkie Izy", and "Morskie Slonce". CD features three bonus tracks – "Gra Milosna", "Fikolek", and "Tanczaca Anaconda". CD

Tony AllenBlack Voices ... LP
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1999. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A seminal set that really put Tony Allen back on top – a record that showed that Allen was way more than just Fela's drummer, or another Afro Funk artist in general – but instead a really free-thinking, deep-concept musician overall! The album comes from key time that Allen spent on the Paris scene in the 90s – really refining a new sound, while keeping all the best bits from before – creating this new sort of darker groove that almost mixes older percussion with kind of a spacey style that's echoes proggish funk from a range of groups from Can to Cymande! There's loads of cool keyboards and tight guitar lines, and even the vocals have some spacey production that makes them fit nicely with the grooves. Titles include "Asiko", "Get Together", "Black Voices", and "The Same Blood". LP, Vinyl record album

Trumpety magic from Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – a record that's known not only for its classic cover of a model dipped in whipped cream, but also for it's tremendously groovy groove! The Tijuana sound is very firmly in place by the time of this set – Mexican-inspired, but compressed down into a sweet little LA groove in that magical A&M way – never too over the top, done in a way that takes a previously-hokey brassy sound, and smoothes it out for the Now Sound generation! Titles include the hit single "Whipped Cream", plus "Taste Of Honey", "Green Peppers", "Bittersweet Samba", "Lemon Tree", "Ladyfingers", and "Butterball". Includes the bonus tracks "Rosemary" and "Blueberry Park". CD

The record is a 50s compilation of singles that Jug cut for Mercury during the late 40s, when he was transforming from a hard swing player into a firey bopper – but one who was capable of infusing his solos with a rich sense of emotion that was enough to bridge both generations of jazz. The tracks are great, and are essential listening I the career of Gene Ammons. The original recordings are very tough to find – and even this album doesn't show up that often. Filled with great tracks – like "Red Top", "Hot Springs", "Concentration", "Jeet Jet", and "Odd En Dow". LP, Vinyl record album

Andrew Soul/Steven Tang/Prof DelacroixOsunlade Atonement Sampler – Disconnected Thoughts/Sunspot/Build Her ... LP
R2 (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $12.99
Some of the warmest grooves we've heard so far from Osunlade – a beautiful selection of tracks that work perfectly together – almost as if the artist himself had a hand in their creation! The tracks follow strongly in the vein of organic house that Osunlade's always brought us – but they also seem to have a special sort of glow here – one that's more subtle, but still rhythmically bold – never too over the top in the way the instrumentation glides along, with especially great work on keyboards. Most tracks are instrumental – and this EP features three tracks from the full CD – "Disconnected Thoughts" by Andrew Soul, "Sunspot" by Steven Tang, and "Build Her" by Professor Delacroix.

The tune builds slowly – with raspy guitar lines over rumbling drums – then explodes with the kind of organ-woven groove we first loved from these guys as The Daktaris – with some exotic flourishes on the horns that make the whole thing sound wonderfully hip! The track's a great reminder that in a world of countless Afro-styled combos, Antibalas are still very much at the top of the heap! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New ApostlesOnye Akpa/Oshi Onwu ... 7-inch
Academy/Voodoo Funk, Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $7.99 12.99
Early 70s Afro Funk treasures by the Apostles on a stunning 45 – material mined in a joint effort by Academy & Voodoo Funk – both among of the most reverent and respectful diggers of rare African recordings around these days! The Apostles have a unique vibe of their own, though they carry the influences of, and a love for, the global funk and soul of their time. "Onye Akpa" pulls us right in with loose-limbed, yet walloping drums and a relentless rhythm. Punctuated with woozy organ and sweet guitar lines under shout soul vocals, this one kills all the way! "Oshi Onwu" on the other side is cut from the same sweaty cloth, begging you to shout along with the vocals and then slays you with a funky drum break and limber guitar solo. Top notch all the way down to the picture sleeve. Don't miss out! 7-inch, Vinyl record

The male lead has a nice edge, which mixes with this great flute line and the great female backup – all to create this complex interplay of colors and sounds that goes way past the usual tune of this nature! "My Baby" is a bit mellower, but no less complicated – a real flurry of ideas at once, including this very cool ringing bell-like tone in the backings! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Apple & The Three OrangesFree & Easy – The Complete Works 1970 to 1975 (with download) ... LP
Now Again, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99
A funky treasure trove from Apple & The Three Oranges – a group we hardly know at all, but who really blow us away with the cuts on this collection! The groove is plenty hard right from the get-go – the best of the funky 45 underground of the early 70s – which means that there's more 60s rawness on the record than you'd get from bigger-label funk at the time – as Ed "Apple" Nelson still works here with a mostly underground vibe! Ed plays drums – which are mighty hard on most numbers – and his vocals have this offbeat, off-kilter, over the top quality that almost reminds us a bit of the Hank Ballard/James Brown recordings for late 60s King – particularly in the way that Nelson's completely unbridled with his energy. The whole thing's great – one of the best funky collections we've heard in years – and presented with a rich amount of notes and historical information too. Titles include "Free & Easy (parts 1 & 2)", "Moon Light", "Curse Upon The World", "What Goes Around Comes Around", "Down Home Publicity", "True Love Will Never Die", "Gotta Stand For Something (parts 1 & 2)", and "I'll Give You A Ring".

One of Joan Armatrading's real classics of the 70s – a record that perfectly blends her acoustic soul with some slightly tighter arrangements – but all at a level that still feels really personal and spontaneous! Joan's unique singing style is very much upfront – that individual voice that no other singer's ever been able to touch – and it sounds great next to the sweetly slinky arrangements in the backings, which often mix acoustic guitar from Joan with some mellow keyboards and a slight bit of electric fuzz. There's a great sense of feeling on most tracks – but at a level that's different both from conventional soul or rock – and titles include "Bottom To The Top", "Your Letter", "Am I Blue For You", "You Rope You Tie Me", "Baby I", "Wishing", and "Barefoot & Pregnant".

One of The Artistics' most beautiful albums for Brunswick – and the one that includes the title song that was perhaps their greatest single! "I Want You To Make My Life Over" is a classic bit of Chicago soul – done at a level that really sums up all the sophisticated changes the city had brought to the music at the start of the 70s – and served up with cool vibes, great vocals, and a heavenly production style that wraps up the harmonies tightly together, and floats them over the top with nary a wrinkle! That cut kicks off the album, and things only just get better and better – on titles that include "Just Another Heartache", "Nothing But Heartaches", and "Trouble Heartache & Pain" (hey, these guys had a lot of heartache!) – plus "Out In The Country", "Sugar Cane", and "What The World Needs Now".

Jack AshfordHotel Sheet ... CD
Magic Disc/Creole Stream (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $22.99
One of the coolest club records ever cut – and one with a great gimmick too! That gimmick is the "hotel sheet" – an instrument created by percussionist Jack Ashford, which is a light piece of metal that's snapped back and worth to create these cool wibbly, wobbly waves of sound – almost like a moog at times, which gives some of these tracks a bit of a P&P Records vibe! Ashford was a member of The Funk Brothers – and a percussionist on countless classic Motown sessions – but this album was recorded in LA with a sweet electric groove, and a mix of strings and funk that almost rivals Jack's only other full album – a rare blacksploitation soundtrack. The set features full arrangements from Paul Riser, orchestrations from Gordon Staples, and the whole thing was recorded at the Marvin Gaye studios – which you can almost hear in Ashford's surprisingly great vocals. The title cut "Hotel Sheet" has this wonderful popping moogy sound that's very nice – and other tracks include "Funky Disco Party", "Shar", "Hi Mom, Hi Al", and "Get Right On Top". CD

Always-great work from the team of Ashford & Simpson – the kind of a record that has them at the top of their game, even though they'd changed their overall sound over the years! The vibe here is more in an 80s groove mode than some of the duo's Warner albums, but they've still got an undeniable talent for a massive hook – the kind that makes even the simplest tunes really go over the top. Plus, they're just about one of the only male/female duo teams that you can hear on record and actually believe that both singers are on the same page! Titles include "Side Effect", "Experience", "It's A Rush", "High-Rise", "Still Such A Thing", "It's Much Deeper", "I'm Not That Tough", and "My Kinda Pick Me Up". 5 bonus tracks on this Big Break UK remastered edition: single versions of "High-Rise", "It's Much Deeper and "I'm Not That Tough", plus a "High Rise (12" Version and 12" M+M Instrumental Mix)".

The album's never too slick, yet has a sense of perfection that matches some of the best soulful fusion dates at Blue Note or Fantasy in the mid 70s – a quality that's especially strong on the vocal tracks on the set – one of which features Lew Kirton in the lead! The players are all totally top-shelf – and include Lonnie Smith and Jimmy McGriff on keyboards, John Faddis and Marvin Stamm on trumpets, and Jimmy Ponder on guitar – and the set's got a beautiful balance that few other records like this can match.

The album's very much in the best spirit of the group's Mercury debut – still recorded in Memphis, with production that's tight, but never uptight – enough to firmly put the group at the top of the funk superstar scene of the mid 70s, yet never sell out the rich Memphis groove that first got them going! Titles include "You Can't Run Away", "Let's Have Some Fun", "Can't Keep My Hands Off You", "Whatever It Is", and "Shut the Funk Up". LP, Vinyl record album

New Count Basie & The Mills BrothersBoard Of Directors ... LP
Dot, 1967. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A late 60s swinger from The Mills Brothers – with the aging vocal group get some great assistance from the Count Basie Orchestra! By the time of this sessions, The Mills Brothers had been recording for at least 4 decades – and although their early hits had gained the group a great deal of fame, their career as a whole was fading considerably in the 60s. Enter Basie, whose group was still very much at the top of its form in the decade – thanks to a great ear for transforming older tunes into fresher takes, and newer tunes into more swinging jazz-based vehicles. Working here with arranger Dick Hyman, the Basie group gives the Mills Brothers a soaring, bouncing kind of support – one that takes their vocals, tightens them up, and really sends the tunes home with a nice sort of zing! Old and new numbers come off great in the setting – and titles include "Release Me", "I Want To Be Happy", "Down Down Down", "I Dig Rock & Roll Music", "Let Me Dream", "April In Paris", "I May Be Wrong But I Think You're Wonderful", and "Tiny Bubbles".

Joe Bataan's in top form throughout – serving up a blend of Latin grooves and 60s soul influences that few other artists of the time could touch – soaring and upbeat one minute, but mellow and laidback the next. There's a number of longer tracks on here that really move past the standard Latin Soul modes – bringing in bits of descarga jazz, instrumental soul, and mellower ballads to Joe's already-great blend of styles. The depth here is tremendous, and nearly every track's a winner! Titles include the slamming "It's A Good Feeling (Riot)", "Muneca", and "Mambo De Bataan" – plus the soul tracks "What Good Is A Castle", "My Cloud", "Daddy's Coming Home", "Ordinary Guy", and "For Your Love".

This is all about soaring, groovy harmonies and impeccable production – on tunes that include "I Get Around", "All Summer Long", "Hushabye", "Little Honda", "Wendy", "Carl's Big Chance", "Girls On The Beach", "Drive-In", "Don't Back Down" and more.

New Beach BoysPet Sounds ... LP
Capitol, 1966. Very Good- ... $34.99
One of the greatest records of all time – and don't you forget it! Despite the countless lines of type that have been written about this record, nothing does it full justice like an all-through listen – something we're reminded of every time we put this one on the turntable, which is a heck of a lot over the years! Brian Wilson busted his ass making this little gem – and the rest of the world, and the band, were never the same again – awash in harmonies that most other groups tried to match, set to themes of young loss, longing, and frustration that really mark an emotional development – not just in the Beach Boys, but in pop music in general. And although some of the tracks are ones you've heard a million times on oldies stations, they somehow resonate together much more strongly here – taking on new meaning as the smaller elements of each song come into constellation with each other – creating a complicated tapestry of feelings set to near-godlike orchestrations. Titles include "God Only Knows", "Caroline No", "Pet Sounds", "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times", "Wouldn't It Be Nice", and "You Still Believe In Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Bee GeesMorning Of My Life – The Best Of The Bee Gees 1965/1966 ... CD
Warner (Australia), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
Wonderful lost work from The Bee Gees – some surprisingly wonderful Australian recordings, made in the few years before their American debut! The vocal strengths of the group are already firmly in place – those amazing harmonies with a quality that's unlike any other act we can think of – rising together on these beautiful little tunes that have a simplicity that's really a nice contrast to later years – which lets us focus on the vocals even more! Some moments are nice and raw, too – with sharper guitars and tighter drums that almost echo the coming psych and garage sounds of the US – but mixed with the trio's voices in this really great way. If you've only ever heard early Bee Gees on Atco, you'll find a heck of a lot to love here – on a set of 24 tracks that includes "The Storm", "Spicks & Specks", "I Am The World", "I Want Home", "Butterfly", "Jingle Jangle", "Playdown", "Second Hand People", "And The Children Laughing", "Wine & Women", "Coalman", "How Many Birds", and "Top Hat".

This one's far more of a straight soul album than most of George Benson's earlier vocal sets – but as usual, the work is pretty high caliber throughout – and George is definitely on top of his game here, effortlessly beating others at the style they'd all started to cop from Benson by the time! Production is mostly by Narada Michael Walden, with that mix of warmth and depth that graced most of his soul sides from the time – but other tracks also get production from Kashif and Tommy LiPuma, who definitely up the pop quotient on the set. Titles include "Teaser", "Shiver", "While The City Sleeps", "Kisses In The Moonlight", "Too Many Times", and "Did You Hear Thunder". LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie BertLike Cool – The Contemporary Trombone Artistry Of Eddie Bert (aka Let's Dig Bert) ... LP
Somerset, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $4.99
A nice little album that features some of Eddie Bert's best work as a leader – a set with some sharp modern tones and a very cool feel overall! The outing's a strong small combo one – with Bert in lead on trombone, plus tenor by Dave Schildkraut, guitar by Barry Gailbraith, piano by Hank Jones, and drums by Osie Johnson. Tracks are more open than you'd expect – with lots of great blowing by Bert in that dark moody mode he worked on with Mingus. Schildkraut's sax is very nice, too – and tracks include "Blue Beetle Original", "Father Time", "Cool School Days", "Home Cookin", and "Speedster". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has staining and waviness on most of the front and back, with a small split on the top seam. Labels have staining.)

Justo BetancourtPa Bravo Yo (remastered edition) ... CD
Fania, 1972. New Copy ... $9.99 10.99
A really top-shelf album from Justo Betancourt – a perfect illustration of the power of his vocals at their height! The set's got a really classic 70s salsa feel – a horn-heavy groove that almost effortlessly flows from a combo of strong players, topped by majestic vocals from Justo – stretching out soulfully with these wonderful inflections, timings, and turns that go far beyond the simple lyrics of the tunes. The record's almost a casebook study in the way that the Fania singers of the 70s could be completely expressive without resorting to any sort of over-emotive cliches – a new level of Latin masculinity in song, served up here with impeccable arrangements by Javier Vazquez. Titles include "Pa Bravo Yo", "Psicologia", "Oyeme Cantar", "Guaguanco Ta Moderno", "Adios Felicidad", "Catano", and "Una Audiencia Muerta". CD

New BG Knocc Out & DrestaReal Brothas ... CD
Outburst/Universal (Japan), 1995. New Copy ... $13.99
A strong, consistent and nowadays under-acknowledged standout in the early-to-mid 90s west coast gangsta rap boom from Eazy E proteges BG Knocc Out & Dresta! They don't reinvent the wheel on Real Brothas, but it really is a solid snapshot of the sound and the era – and the rhyme skills are top notch – flowing as strongly as their more legendary Compton peers. Includes "Everyday All Day", "Jealousy", "Whose The G", "Life's A Puzzle", "Micc Checc", "Compton & Watts", "Do Or Die", "Take A Ride", "50/50 Love", "Real Brothas", Down Goes Anotha N***a" and more.

Big Brother & The Holding CompanyBig Brother & The Holding Company ... LP
Mainstream, 1967. Very Good- ... $7.99
The first full album featuring the incredible voice of Janis Joplin, as the singer of Big Brother & The Holding Company! Even at this early point, it's clear that there's some really incredible things happening with this band. Originally released on Mainstream, the production is a bit thin compared to the bigger sounding records to come, hich actually works incredibly well – as Janis's voice just tears right through in a really exciting way. The rawer Big Brother backdrop is great, too! Titles include "Easy Rider", "Bye, Bye Baby", "Intruder", "Women Is Losers", Moondog's "All Is Lonliness", and "Down On Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Mainstream pressing. Cover has a split top seam & some wear.)

BilalLove Surreal ... CD
Purpose/E One, 2013. New Copy ... $11.99 17.98
Tremendous work from Bilal – and further proof that his life on the indie side of the soul spectrum has been a very good thing! There's a crispness to the record that crackles right from the start – slight cosmic touches in the beats, but never too over the top – just enough to electrify the vocals and push Bilal past any sort of mainstream soul – and help him deliver the rich promise we first heard in his music so many years ago – but never found this fully formed during his major label stretch! There's some nice electric bits that percolate forth – moogy keys or sparkling samples – yet the vocals still have all the core warmth that's kept us coming back. Titles include "Astray", "Lost For Now", "West Side Girl", "Back To Love", "Longing & Waiting", and "Butterfly", which features a guest appearance from Robert Glasper! CD

Bionic BoogieHot Butterfly (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A dancefloor classic! The album's the second by Gregg Diamond's Bionic Boogie, and head and shoulders above the rest – a sublime blend of soul and club that's hardly been matched again! Diamond manages to make things groove, but never loses sight of the soulful styles that make the record so great – and works here with key contributions from a young Luther Vandross, who gives the album some of the same strong vocal arrangements he brought to his own first two albums on Atlantic! Luther sings lead on the album's legendary track "Hot Butterfly", and works in a group with Cissy Houston on other tracks – sweetly soaring with vocals that go far beyond most disco efforts of the time. Simply sublime, and with classics that include "Hot Butterfly", "Paradise", "Cream (Always Rises To The Top)", "Chains", and "When The Sh*t Hits The Fan (Rocket Pocket)". CD
Also available Hot Butterfly (with bonus tracks) ... CD 15.99
