Beach BoysThat's Why God Made The Radio ... CD
Capitol, 2012. Used ... $1.99
A surprisingly great comeback for The Beach Boys – working here with Brian Wilson at the production helm, in a mode that really recalls the glory of the group's post-Pet Sounds years! We'll be honest that we were initially cringing at the title – and expected the worst – but there's a compelling, charming quality here that comes not just from the group's well-crafted harmonies, or the sensitive and careful production – but also from the fact that these guys have aged a heck of a lot, and seem to bring a sense of humanity to the music they wouldn't have had before! It's almost like that early 20s moment when the Boys were starting to grow up and bringing a new sense of pain to their previous teen lyrics – but recast here in a post-middle age mode that's even more human and honest – yet somehow still served up with all the sweetness that's always made the group great! It's that mix of sweet sounds and bittersweet undercurrents that really makes the album shine – a balance that even Brian Wilson never managed to capture this well in some of his own solo projects over the past few decades. So our hat's off to the group (showing the same bald spot that most of them have too) – thanks for a nice album that includes the cuts "Shelter", "The Private Life Of Bill & Sue", "Think About The Days", "Isn't It The Time", "Pacific Coast Highway", "Summer's Gone", and "From There To Back Again".

New Kenny BurrellGod Bless The Child ... LP
CTI, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
A stone classic from Kenny Burrell – a record that brought the guitarist to a whole new audience, with a wonderful sound that's a perfect summation of CTI at its best! The vibe here is perfect – spare, airy guitar lines from Burrell – playing with a freer style than usual, although with all of the deep soul of before – in ways that are a bit like the early Wes Montgomery material for CTI, but taken to the next level with a more sophisticated set of backdrops too! Don Sebesky handled arrangements, Freddie Hubbard solos alongside Kenny, and many track shave some mighty nice electric piano, too. Titles include funky track "Love Is The Answer", and mellower tunes "Child Is Born", "Do What You Gotta Do", and "Be Yourself". LP, Vinyl record album

Chi-Lites(For God's Sake) Give More Power To The People ... LP
Brunswick, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Seminal work from one of the 70s greatest groups! The band had always been great at love songs and uptempo numbers – but this record has them moving into more righteous area, picking up on some of the more socially conscious soul of their generation that had been working its way up the charts. The album features excellent production by Chi-Lite Eugene Record, who also wrote a lot of the material – plus arrangements by Tom Tom and Sonny Sanders. Great stuff all around, with the righteous social tunes "(For God's Sake) Give More Power to The People", "Trouble's A Comin", and "We Are Neighbors" – plus classic love songs "Have You Seen Her" and "Love Uprising", which are still kind of the band's strongest point. Loads more great stuff on this one, the album that helped the second wave of Chicago soul break out into the international market! LP, Vinyl record album

New Blind Willie JohnsonPraise God I'm Satisfied (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Yazoo, Late 20s. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
He may be blind, but he's plenty satisfied – and so are we, with this excellent package of rare 78rpm recordings from Willie Johnson! The sound quality is great – which is important, as Willie's got a style of guitar that's almost lighter in tone than some of his contemporaries – a deft thinness that really comes through well in this presentation of the music, really showing his skill on the strings. Vocals are surprisingly raw at points, making for a real contrast to the guitar – and titles include "I Know His Blood Can Make Me Whole", "Praise God I'm Satisfied", "Dark Was The Night Cold Was The Ground", "When The War Was On", and "Mother's Children Have A Hard Time".

New Otis G JohnsonEverything – God Is Love 78 ... LP
Numero, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 16.98
Otis Johnson may well be the Timmy Thomas of gospel music – as here, he's working with just spare organ lines and rhythm machine – in a way that gives most of these tracks the raw, personal feel of Timmy's classic "Why Can't We Live Together"! The overall sound is a bit more rough – given that Otis was working in a small Michigan studio, and not the TK scene in Miami – but the album's definitely got that slow-stepping feel we love in Timmy's early music – and the vocals echo out with this personal sense of yearning that's mighty great – and quite different than the bolder, confident sound you'd hear in more mainstream gospel recordings. The album's a damn enigma, and a great one too – and titles include "All Thing", "Come Back", "Your Day", "He's The Way", and "Time To Go Home". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great packaging too – with a heavy tip-on cover, and a sweet rice paper obi!)

New Donna Summer & OthersThank God It's Friday – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Columbia/Casablanca, 1978. Used 2CD ... $16.99
A huge disco cash-in moment of the 70s – but a great one too, and a strong illustration of the power that Casablanca Records had in both the clubs and charts at the time! The movie and record were both a bit over-pressed upon release, but they nonetheless stand as a great snapshot of the way that funky soul had taken over the clubs during the disco generation – giving showcase to a whole host of new young artists, and exposing lots of mainstream listeners to soul music at a level they wouldn't have touched a few years before! Donna Summer was one of Casablanca's big acts at the time – and she really dominates the record with her classic rendition of "Last Dance", plus tracks "With Your Love" and a disco remake of "Je T'Aime Moi Non Plus". Both other cuts are strong too – and include "Lovin, Livin, & Givin" by Diana Ross, "Too Hot Ta Trot" by The Commodores, "Disco Queen" by Paul Jabara, "Leatherman's Theme" by Wright Bros Flying Machine, "Floyd's Theme" by Natural Juices, and "Find My Way" by Cameo.

VariousGood God! – Born Again Funk ... CD
Numero, 1970s. New Copy ... $15.99 18.98
Damn funky gospel soul – the sort you'd hardly expect from spiritual folks like these, but which flourished strongly alongside more standard church-related work in the 70s! The package is a stunning follow up to Numero's first Good God volume – and really digs even deeper than that great set – pulling out a mad flurry of rare funky 45s that easily match any hip secular soul at the time, at least in the spirit of the groove! The lyrics are definitely on the righteous tip, but never too much so – and the earthly rhythms at the bottom of most tracks is more than enough to help pitch the grooves strongly towards anyone who's never even set foot inside of a church. As usual, Numero do an excellent job with the notes and details on all cuts – showing they really put a hell of a lot of thought into the collection – and titles include "I Know I've Been Changed" by Victory Travelers, "Pray A Little Longer" by Lucy Sister Soul Rogers, "Packing A Grip" by Golden Echoes, "Like A Ship" by Pastor TL Barrett & The Youth For Christ, "Been Trying" by Chicago Travelers, "The Same Thing It Took" by Inspirational Gospel Singers, "Somebody Watching You" by Sacred Four, "Peter & John" by Andrew Wartts & The Gospel Storytellers, "I Thank You Lord" by Little Chris & The Righteous Singers, and "Share Your Love" by Sensational Five Singing Sons.

A landmark bit of avant prog psych from the American underground of the late 60s – the astral mindblower that is God Bless The Red Krayola & All Who Sail It! This second album is the group's early masterpiece – a brilliant, jarring psychedelic work of genius! It's got the strangeness of the Parable LP, but Mayo & the boys have a way with strange melody that escaped the earlier album. It's often buried under the astral wierdness and abrasive tendancies, but it nevertheless casts a spooky glow throughout!

New Mark LaneganHas God Seen My Shadow? – Anthology 1989 to 2011 (3LP box set) ... LP
Light In The Attic, Late 80s/1990s/2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy 3 LPs ... Out Of Stock
A top notch solo anthology for Mark Lanegan – who we first heard as vocalist for the Pacific Northwest rock heavies Screaming Trees – but his brooding vocal presence was always begging for the sparer, noirish setting of his best solo and duo settings. Lanagan has been pretty active over the years, collaborating with Isobel Campbell for some impressive duo records, as well has his work with the Twilight Singers and Queens Of The Stone Age – but the solo stuff is pretty tough to beat. The setlist features solo recordings from a 20+ year stretch, recorded for Sub Pop and Beggars Banquet, many in a moody acoustic setting – and often backed by Pacific Northwest scene legends and Sub Pop labelmates who sound as great in a quieter sound as they do playing heavier rock – including members of Soundgarden and Queens Of The Stone Age. It also includes full bonus LP of previously unreleased tracks, and the titles include "Bombed", "100 Days", "Come To Me", "Mirrored", "Low", "Lexington Slow Down", "Wild Flowers", "Sunrise", "Carnival", "Pendulum", "The River Rise", "Dream Lullaby", "A Song While Waiting", "Big White Cloud", "Grey Goes Black", "Halcyon Daze", "Blues Run The Game (Live)" and more.

Yipes, this must have been a clear indication of just how popular the show really was!

A more laidback set than usual from Ammons' early 70s stretch on Prestige – but a record that nicely gets back to that big-toned tenor sound he used often on ballads from earlier years! The combo mixes both electric piano and organ – the former from Hank Jones, the latter from Ernie Hayes – and drums are mostly by Idris Muhammad, but in a style that's a bit more roundly open and soul-based than some of his funkier jams. But there's still a nice groove to many numbers – a gentler one, with a sly undercurrent of soul – even on a few that feature fuller strings arranged by Ed Bogas.

Capitol, Mid 60s. Used 2 CDs ... $16.99
My God – they finally did it! After all these years of hearing about the legendary Smile album from The Beach Boys – hearing snippets on other albums, studio bonus tracks, re-recordings, and all the other sources they've dangled in front of us for decades – Capitol's finally gone and done what they never did back in the 60s – released the whole legendary set together, as one package – and in formats that even exceed anything that might have been issued back in the day! You've probably heard a good number of the songs here before – some as they were chopped up and included on Smiley Smile, 20/20, and other post-Pet Sounds albums by the group – and in some recent re-recordings by Brian Wilson. But trust us, they all sound amazing here together – in the original recordings, with sublime 60s studio production, and godlike arrangements by the young Brian Wilson. Titles include "Our Prayer", "Gee", "My Only Sunshine/You Are", "Cabin Essence", "Wonderful", "Surf's Up", "Holidays", "Vege-Tables", "Good Vibrations", "Love To Say Dada", "Do You Like Worms", "Barnyard", and "I'm In Great Shape". Plus, this hip box set has loads of cool bits – 2CDs that include the original album with 8 bonus tracks on the first disc – then a full bonus CD of "finished" work from the project – alternate takes, expanded versions, and more – including "Our Prayer Dialogue", "Surf's Up 1st Movement", "Vege-Tables (fade)", "Cool Cool Water (version 2)", "Heroes & Villains (children were raised)", and more.

William BellWow/Bound To Happen ... CD
Stax, 1969/1971. Used ... $12.99
Late 60s magic from William Bell – two tremendous albums on a single CD! Wow is a record that definitely earns the "wow" in its title – as it makes us sit up and take new notice of William Bell's talents! Although Bell's best known for his earliest Memphis hits, he really changed a lot near the end of the 60s – evolving into a hipper, more mature singer capable of reaching new heights with his vocals – and touching on themes that go way beyond the early years. Part of the strength of the record is also due to the production – a full, proud effort helmed by Al Bell – and featuring contributions from a galaxy of Memphis and Muscle Shoals talents who include The Bar-Kays, Booker T, Eddie Hinton, and The Memphis Horns! Titles include the amazing track "I Forgot To Be Your Lover" – a number that really redefined William's sound – plus "You'll Want Diamonds", "I Can't Make It", "All For The Love Of A Woman", "My Door Is Always Open", and "I Can't Make It (All By Myself)". Bound To Happen is killer work from William Bell – a record that has him really unfolding and growing at the end of the 60s – taking off with a new sort of energy that we hardly would have expected a few years before! The sound here is nicely deep and mature – still in a classic Memphis mode, but with nods to some of the changes going on in soul all around the country from in the 60s – a style that sifts in some of the best righteous elements from other scenes, then wraps them up nicely with a sweet Tennessee glow. Titles include covers of "Western Union Man" and "Everyday People", plus a number of great post-1968 Stax tunes, most of which were written by Booker T. Jones – including "Johnny I Love You", "All God's Children Got Soul", and "A Smile Can't Hide". CD

Big BoysLullabies Help The Brain Grow (limited edition cassette) ... Cassette
Modern Classics/Burger, 1983. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
Early 80s underground rock from 80s punk genre blenders Big Boys – a band that would go from furious hardcore blasts, to horn heavy punk funk from one track to the next – and sometimes in the same track! There was really no one exactly like the Big Boys back then, and they trailblazed paths for a lot of bands we'd associate with the southern California "skake rock" in the years to come – which is especially fascinating, given that The Big Boys are from Austin, TX! As varied as their approach is, it's ultimately still in the punk wheelhouse, thanks to raw production – courtesy of SST records house producer Spot – and the bands manic energy and really reckless lyrics. Includes "We Got Your Money", "Lesson", "Funk Off", "I'm Sorry", "We're Not In It To Lose", "Gator F**kin", "Brick Wall", "Baby Let's Play God" and more. Cassette
(Cassette co-released with Burger Records and limited to 500 hand-numbered copies in our exclusive tip-on tape box.)

Fabrizio BossoPurple ... CD
Verve (Italy), 2013. New Copy ... $11.99
A really unusual project for this great Italian trumpeter – a set that has Fabrizio Bosso working with his Spiritual Trio – a group that features lots of Hammond organ, and plenty of tight drums! The "spiritual" in their name is a reference to an American gospel and soul tradition – one that's given plenty of play here, as most numbers are old spiritual standards from the church, reworked by Bosso into jazz instrumentals! Given the heavy use of organ, the approach is a bit like some of the Lou Bennett albums on the European scene of the 60s – with maybe a nod to the Donald Byrd albums of a spiritual nature for Blue Note. But there's also some very personal elements here too – either unusual instrumental inflections or production techniques, or some other aspects that show a greatly evolved understanding of this mode in jazz. Titles include "This Little Light Of Mine", "Purple", "A Little 3/4 For God & Co", "Dreams Come True", "Wishy Washy", "Total Praise", "A Change Is Gonna Come", and "Wade In The Water". CD

Jaimeo BrownTranscendence ... CD
Motema, 2013. Used ... $6.99
A compelling conception from drummer Jaimeo Brown – a set that mixes the jazz performance of his trio with inspiration from older gospel music – in particular the famous work of the Gee's Bend Singers, who are sampled here on a number of tracks! About half the record draws vocals from vintage Gee's Bend recordings – and the other half shifts between instrumental passages, and other new vocal performances with singer Selah Brown, Marisha Brown, and Falu. At the core, Brown's trio keeps things on edge, and pushes the project far from hoke with their nicely dark tones – subtle work on drums from Jaimeo, plus tenor from JD Allen and guitar from Chris Sholar. Titles include "Mean World", "You Can't Hide", "Patience", "Power Of God", "Be Free", "You Needn't Mind Me Dying", and "Baby Miesh". CD

Blue Note/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A Donald Byrd treasure – and an album that was almost left in the vaults by Blue Note, until they briefly released it at the end of the 70s! The cover and title are a bit unfamiliar, but the music is right up there with Byrd's classic sessions with baritonist Pepper Adams – a great player here, with a deftness on his horn that's incredible – matching all the sharp changes and soulful undercurrents of Byrd's sparkling trumpet! There's a nice hard sound to the whole thing – almost the raw power of the pair's albums for the Warwick label – and as with those, Herbie Hancock is on piano – giving the whole thing an excellent soul jazz groove that really kicks the main soloists into action! Titles include "Great God", "I'm An Old Cowhand", "That's All", "You're Next", and "Chant". LP, Vinyl record album

Sam CookeTribute To The Lady ... CD
Keen/Andex (Spain), 1959. Used ... $19.99
An early gem from the great Sam Cooke – a pre-RCA session, but one that already has Sam showing a stronger jazzy side of his talents – as you might guess from the title! The Lady, in this case, is the late Billie Holiday – recently passed at the time of this recording, and lovingly paid tribute to by a young Sam Cooke – with vocals that have a perfect blend of sweet and raspy to really unlock the tension in Holiday's music – yet also deliver the sound with a much different vibe overall. The set's a great example of how strongly Cooke could sing in a sophisticated jazzy style – and he does a great job with Holiday standards like "God Bless The Child", "Solitude", "Lover Girl", and "They Can't Take That Away From Me". Rene Hall did the orchestrations – and the album's an interesting example of how Cooke, like Holiday, could work within conventional forms to work a subtly progressive agenda! CD

Bam-Boo, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A legendary bit of funk – and a killer record from one of the most unique guitarists ever! George Freeman's got a sound and a style unlike any other player we can think of – an approach to funky guitar that's often got a really hard touch on the strings, and which gets nice and noisy at the best funky moments. Freeman's probably best known for the few obscure records he cut with Groove Holmes, but this album's his out and out masterpiece – a rare one-off session cut in the funky Philly scene and supervised by DJ Sonny Hopson – and featuring a rare mix of players that includes Cesar Frazier on organ and Charles Earland on Arp! The mix of organ and Arp is really incredible – especially on the side-long jammer "Franticdiagnosis", which runs for nearly 20 minutes, and is one of the most messed-up funky jazz jams of the 70s! Other players include Von Freeman on tenor sax and Dave Hubbard on alto flute – and the album features the legendary jazz dance track "The Bump", plus the cuts "Free-Man" and "God Bless The Child".

A tasty double-live set from Al Green – one that has him working through longer versions of tunes than you'd hear on his studio albums, and really doing great in front of an appreciative Japanese crowd! The overall approach here is a bit more modern than on some of his older Hi albums – as the band uses the extra space to make things a bit more uptempo and really push the groove – but Al's vocals still hold the whole set together nicely, especially on the numbers where he lets loose a bit more. Linda Jones is one of the backup singers on the set – and titles include "Belle", "Let's Get Married", "Love & Happiness", "I Feel Good", "Dream", "God Blessed Our Love", "You Ought To Be With Me", and "Tired Of Being Alone".

A landmark bit of jazz funk – from one of the greatest backup groups of the 70s! Herbie Hancock first brought The Headhunters to light – working with the San Francisco-based combo that included Bennie Maupin, Mike Clark, Paul Jackson, and Bill Summers – using their sound to give his work the right dose of funk it needed to reach new audiences during the decade. This album's the first to feature the group on their own, without Herbie – and if we don't mind saying so, they sound even better without him! The whole thing's a wonderful mix of jazz funk grooves and very unusual rhythms – and the record contains the monster full length version of "God Make Me Funky", which is 9 minutes and 35 seconds of non stop funk, plus the cuts "If You've Got It, You'll Get It", "Magic", and "Here & Now".

Was there a sexier 70s celebrity than Joey Heatherton? It's hard to think so – and the cover of this one is more than enough proof that she was America's greatest answer to Brigitte Bardot! And while we certainly remember her from countless variety show appearances at the time, it's actually a bit hard to remember her as a singer (something that's due, no doubt, to the fact that we were so busy looking – not listening!) The album's done in a sexy sort of 70s pop mode – slight country touches on a few tunes, but mostly glistening adult-styled backings from the team of Tony Scotti and Tommy Oliver. Tunes include "God Only Knows", "It's Not Easy", "Right Or Wrong", "I'm Sorry", "Gone", "Say Hello", and "Someone To Watch Over Me". CD

New ImaginationsImaginations ... LP
20th Century, Mid 70s. Very Good- ... $14.99
An excellent group soul from Chicago – and no wonder, since The Imaginations were previously Brighter Side Of Darknes, a sublime falsetto harmony group who had a huge hit in 1972 with "Love Jones". This record's very much in the vein of that song – but also features a maturation of the group's emotions and harmonies, taking them into a mix of sophisticated love songs and righteous society tunes that puts them with the best of the early 70s harmonicists from the east coast. The album was produced in Chicago by Star-Vue Productions, and it's got arrangements by Tom Tom and Benjamin Wright that are very much in the mode of late Cadet and Brunswick work. Titles include "Because I Love You", "Ballad Of Matheia", "Love Diet", "God Bless You Love", "Me, Myself & I", "Searchin'", and "Talk About the World". LP, Vinyl record album

Jobim plays electric and acoustic piano, guitar, and sings a bit – and Deodato handled the arrangements with a breezy brilliance that matches all the magic of Jobim's wonderful compositions, but gives them a slightly more fluid feel too – in a way that's somewhat more sophisticated than the sound of Jobim's previous CTI outings – Tide and Wave. Other players on the album include Joe Farrell on soprano sax, Hubert Laws on flute, and Airto on percussion – and there's a great mix of Brazilian and American styles on the set – electric, sinister, breezy, and always wonderful!

The vocals have that same sort of crazy pinched sound that he had with The Chairmen, and there's loads of great original tunes here – plus a few Chairmen numbers, thrown into the mix, in the way that things sometimes got repeated on the Invictus label – but that's OK with us, because the tunes are so great. The grooves are nice and bouncy – and cuts include "God's Gift To Man", "Every Couple's Not A Pair", "I'll Never Get Tired Of You", "Mary Lou Thomas", and "My Credit Didn't Go Through".

Incredible music from Seu Jorge – and that's saying a lot, given how much we've loved all of his previous records! This time around, Jorge really knocks it out of the park – by stepping away from some of his tighter styles, and going for a looser, more organic approach that's totally great – forged strongly with the cool combo Almaz, which features members of Nacao Zumbi, and bassist Antonio Pinto – the guy behind the great music in City Of God! The result is a record that's completely fresh, new territory for Jorge – but a set that also still holds onto all the best charms of his previous records too – and given that he's always seemed poised for superstardom and global crossover, it's even more incredible that he's made such a rootsy record like this! The record's filled with cool covers – all given the Almaz twist – tunes by Kraftwerk, Roy Ayers, Michael Jackson, Jorge Ben, Tim Maia, and others – completely reworked, and tuned up with spare instrumentation that's mostly guitar, bass, and drums. Titles include "Everybody Loves The Sunshine", "The Model", "Cala Boca Menino", "Girl You Move Me", "Juizo Final", "Cirandar", "Tempo De Amor", and "Rock With You". CD

The lineup is mixed male/female – and they sing with a tight sophisticated sound that works beautifully with the pop material included on these two albums. Plus, Anita had a wicked talent for coming up with slightly off-beat arrangements – which means that the group's treatment of the material is a lot fresher than you'd expect. There's a total of 11 tracks on this set – including "Lalena", "When The World Was Young", "Happy Heart", "God Bless The Child", "You & I", "My Way", "You've Made Me So Very Happy", and "The Windmills Of Your Mind".

Most of the tracks here are from Bobby's albums of the past decade or so for Ubiquity's Cubop imprint – records that set a whole new standard in Latin jazz, and which really returned the music back to its hard-driving, acoustic roots.

The album's got a cool slinky style that's totally great – slightly funky at the bottom, with traces of Sunshine Pop in the overall phrasing of the tunes – a great blend between easy vocal and groovy pop styles of the 60s, and a real standout from the time! The choice of tracks is especially great – and the set includes incredible remakes of "Oh Calcutta", "Keem-O-Sabe", and "Mah Na Mah Na" – all very different than the originals, but all plenty darn wonderful. Other tracks include "Sweet Caroline", "Get Together", "Laughing", "Sugar Sugar", "Ruby Don't Take Your Love To Town", and "Thank God The War Is Over". LP, Vinyl record album

Linda PerhacsSoul Of All Natural Things ... CD
Asthmatic Kitty, 2014. New Copy ... $8.99 14.98
The return of a legend – and the first album from Linda Perhacs in many many years! Perhacs is very well-remembered for her groundbreaking Parallelograms record from the start of the 70s – a sublime blend of older folk aesthetics with some much deeper, darker elements – a quality that's re-captured surprisingly well here in this set of new recordings! Linda's on vocals throughout, and accompanied by light guitar, keyboard, percussion, and a bit of strings – arranged with this careful, gentle quality that almost takes us back to the best creative work of the British acid folk generation – particularly the best work on Island Records or Transatlantic. Perhacs sounds incredibly timeless in the setting – almost as if it's just been a few years since her last record, not forty four – and titles include "Freely", "Prisms Of Glass", "Song Of The Planets", "Immunity", "The Soul Of All Natural Things", and "River Of God".

Peter Peter & Peter KyedValhalla Rising ... LP
Weme, 2009. New Copy 2LPs ... $28.99 32.98
A very dark score for this Viking fantasy film – one that comes across more like some vintage industrial and noise experiments – especially when heard away from the images on the screen! Most tones are very low-end, and seem to come from conventional instruments, abstracted – plus a bit of electronics – almost at this organ-wrenching level that reminds us of Varese at his most intense! There's none of the glory or drama that you'd get from an older soundtrack for a film like this – and instead the whole thing follows suit in the spirit of some of the early work of Throbbing Gristle, sans vocals. Titles include "Free", "Men Of God", "The Boat", "Hell", "Montage", "One Eye Fights", "Escape", and "Arrowhead". LP, Vinyl record album

New Esther PhillipsAlone Again, Naturally (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Kudu/Real Gone, 1972. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the deepest soul sets from Esther Phillips' 70s years on Kudu Records – a set with some nicely gritty grooves and a surprisingly earthy feel at times – especially when compared to some of her other albums of the time! Backings are by James Brown's old reedman, Pee Wee Ellis – and although there's some of the usual Kudu electric funk in the mix, there's also some deeper soul elements too – a vibe that's often a bit laidback and open, almost more Atlantic Records at points – which is a mighty good fit for Esther's wonderful voice! As usual for Kudu, the players are an all-star lineup – one that includes Richard Tee on keyboards, George Benson on guitar, Maceo Parker on tenor, and Bernard Purdie and Billy Cobham on drums – and Don Sebesky's also on deck a bit, to sweeten a few tracks up with light strings. The album's got a great version of Bill Withers' "Use Me" that features a tasty break in the intro – and other titles include a great version of "Alone Again (Naturally)", plus the cuts "Let's Move & Groove", "Cherry Red", "Let Me In Your Life", and "You & Me Together". CD features two bonus cuts – live versions of "Cherry Red" and "God Bless The Child". CD

Sun RaAntique Blacks ... CD
Saturn/Art Yard, 1974. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
Amazing work from Sun Ra – record that really features a great range of sounds and styles, and a heck of a lot of soul as well! Ra plays some especially nice rocksichord on the set – that freaky, fuzzy keyboard that comes off sounding like a guitar, even though it's played with keys – and there's some spiritual undercurrents to the set that are different than some of Ra's other albums with the instrument – some deeply feeling rhythms and soulful, spiritual expressions that really belie the Space Is The Place generation in which the album was cut. A few recitations imbue the record with a bold sense of poetry, which seems to be carried through strongly in the instrumentation too – especially on John Gilmore's tenor lines, which almost have a Shepp-like quality at points. Other players include Marshal Allen and Danny Davis on alto, Ahk Tal Ebah on trumpet, Clifford Jarvis on drums, and Sly on electric guitar – and titles include "Song No 1", "There Is Change In The Air", "Antique Blacks", "Would I For All That Were", "Ridiculous I & The Cosmos Me", and "This Song Is Dedicated To Nature's God".

Sun RaNidhamu/Dark Myth Equation Visitation ... CD
Saturn/Art Yard (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
Sun Ra returns to the motherland – to serve up a host of classic recordings done in Egypt in the early 70s! There's a cool exotic feel to some of the best tracks here – a vibe that's quite similar to the groove Salah Ragab was hitting at the time in Cairo, although probably a bit more outside overall – thanks to the Arkestra's strongly modern tones. Recordings were done at a few locations – and the set mixes live concert material with even more intimate sides done at the home of Hartmut Geerken, who was a key force in getting the Arkestra to play in Egypt at the time. Ra plays a host of great keyboards – including rocksichord, tiger organ, and moog – and other players include John Gilmore on tenor, Marshall Allen on flute and alto, Danny Thompson on baritone and flute, Kwame Hadi on trumpet, Hakim Rahim on alto and flute, and the trio of Tommy Hunter, Clifford Jarvis, and Lex Humphries on drums. Occasional vocals are sung by June Tyson, Verta Grosvenor, Gloristeena Knight, and Richard Wilkinson – and the set features a whopping 11 tracks, orignally issued on two different Saturn albums, with bonus material too. Titles include "Space Loneliness #2", "Discipline #11", "Nidhamu", "Solar Ship Voyage", "Discipline #27", "Cosmo Darkness", "The Light Thereof", "Friendly Galaxy #2", "To Nature's God", and "Why Go To The Moon?"

New Emitt RhodesMirror ... LP
Dunhill, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $7.99
One of the best records that Emitt Rhodes cut on his own after leaving The Merry Go Round – a slightly rough blend of rock, folk, and dimmed sunny pop influences – and a perfect document of the waning light of the west coast scene at the turn of the 70s. There's almost a boozy feel to the work – Rhodes' vocals a little scratchy, and the songs honestly plucked out like some of Nilsson's more intimate work – touched with occasionally more expansive instrumentation. Titles include "Side We Seldom Show", "Mirror", "Really Wanted You", "My Love Is Strong", "Better Side Of Life", "Love Will Stone You", and "Golden Child Of God". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny RobinsonMemphis High ... LP
Epic, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $7.99
The only album we've ever seen by Johnny Robinson – a rare non-Hi Records set produced by Willie Mitchell, with a sound that's as deeply soulful as some of the best indie work coming out of the Memphis scene in the 60s! Willie's style here is rougher than that used with Al Green or Ann Peebles – and Robinson comes off wonderfully in a nice mix of funk, deep soul, and slower burning backings – all handled with a sense of poise, but also enough of a down-home sense to keep all the raw edges nicely intact! The album's a rare Memphis gem from an unusual source – and titles include "God Is Love", "We Are Gonna Make It", "Slip Away", "Reconsider Me", "Funky Feet", "Lady Doctor", and "Don't Take It So Hard".

New RootsHow I Got Over ... LP
Def Jam, 2010. New Copy ... $9.99 12.98
A less tense and caustic Roots than the crew that hit us on the majority of Rising Down a couple years earlier – and this one's as strong of an album as they've delivered since moving over to Def Jam. In truth, we were a little scared when we saw some of the guests credited – Monsters Of Folk, John Legend, Joanna Newsom and other headscratchers on top of more likely collaborators such as Phonte, Blu, Peedi Peedi and Dice Raw – it gets over very, very well here! How I Got Over is a Roots effort through and through, with contemplative and soulful tracks that simmer and stew in tried and true fashion. The tracks with those indie rock guests turn out to be among the Roots-iest tracks on the record. Believe that! So you can rest easy, the Roots are The Roots here, just what we wanted and just what we get! Includes "A Peace Of Light" feat Amber Coffman, Angel Deradoorian & Haley Dekle, "Walk Alone" feat Truck North, PORN & Dice Raw, "Now Or Never" with Phonte & Dice Raw, "Dear God 2.0" with Monsters Of Folk, "The Day" feat Blu, Phonte & Patty Crash, "Doin It Again", "Tunnel Vision" and more.

New Joe SampleCarmel ... LP
ABC, 1979. Very Good+ ... $0.99
God, we love this record – and we're not ashamed to admit it! Sure, it sold a gazillion copies – and sure, for some folks it showed the true demise of the Crusaders ensemble. But for us, it's a masterpiece of smooth fusion, and a landmark album of easy jazz that spawned countless imitators that could never hope to match Sample's simple and elegant use of funky riffing and lyrical chords – coming in with just the right dash of darkness when the record's in danger of sounding too light. Most of the rest of the Crusaders had a hand in the record, and the set's got the smooth west coast sound you'd expect from the title. Tracks include "Carmel", "Cannery Row", "Sunrise", and "More Beautiful Each Day". LP, Vinyl record album

New Archie SheppCry Of My People ... CD

One of the most righteous albums ever from Archie Shepp – a beautiful late Impulse set of grooves, and a record that matches the genius of Attica Blues! Shepp's working with a losse collective of players that includes Charles Greenlee, Harold Mabern, and Beaver Harris – plus vocalists like Joe Lee Wilson and Peggie Blue – all to craft a set of tunes that are as righteous and political as they are spiritual and soulful! The great Cal Massey handled arrangements on a number of the tracks on the set – bringing together the players with a wonderfully unified feel, pushing away the easy spirituality of earlier records to forge a massively powerful sound – and Shepp matches his great efforts by blowing some of his most soulful lines on record! Titles include the wonderful "African Drum Suite (parts 1 & 2)", plus "A Prayer", "Cry Of My People", "The Lady", "All God's Children Got A Home In The Universe", and "Rest Enough". CD

My god, what a record! This one's genius through and through – a set that sometimes gets eclipsed in the brilliance to come, but which is easily one of our favorites ever by Steely Dan! There's a beautifully focused feel here – thanks to Donald Fagan's incredible lead vocals, and a sense of songwriting that never takes any left turns – no odd forays into different styles or previous genres, just all steeped in Steely, as the group should be by this point! John Klemmer turns in some wonderful sax work that really helps shape the sound, and titles include the wonderful "Caves Of Altimira", "Kid Charlemagne", "Don't Take Me Alive", "Green Earrings", and "The Royal Scam".

New Dexter StorySeasons ... CD
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2012. Used ... $9.99
A beautiful project from the contemporary underground scene in LA – a record that shares lots of energy and musicians with recordings by Build An Ark and Life Force Trio! Dexter Story's the main force behind the record, but the set's a strongly collaborative effort – and features keyboards from Mark De Clive-Lowe, flute from Derf Reklaw, strings from Mighel Atwood-Ferguson, vocals from Dwight Trible, and key studio work from Carlos Nino! Story's vocals and overall conception are wonderful – soaring and soulful, with some slight cosmic touches that give the record a bit more crackle than related projects – a sound that's still steeped in spiritual jazz elements, yet which also really opens up as the set rolls on. There's a wonderful sense of variety to the tracks – due to the shifting lineup – but the overall feel is still very cohesive, and an amazing demonstration of Story's bold musical vision. Titles include "Seasons", "Into The Hour", "Love Force Trio (part 1)", "Underway", "Water Bearer", "Paddle Boat", "Bloop Drip", "Gyre Song", "As Is", "God Sun", and "Suijin". CD

Swell MapsArchive Recordings Volume 1 – Wastrels & Whippersnappers – Early Home Recordings (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Munster (Spain), Late 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
Really great early recordings from The Swell Maps – and a set of tracks that fits very well with their all-too-few albums on Rough Trade! The tracks here were all recorded at home, but don't differ that much from their later, "professional" releases – given the raw power of the group, and their keen ear for experimentation! As with the full albums, the work here swings between full-on punky tracks and more subtle, sonic passages – already extremely creative at this point, and even with some of that later Nikki Sudden charm showing through. The package comes with full notes from Sudden and Jowe Head – and titles include "Gramofonica", "Wireless", "Televisions", "Pet's Corner", "Shubunkin", "Full Moon Blam Full Moon", "God Save The Queen", "Johnny Seven", and "Sweet & Sour (parts 2, 3, & 4)".

The first album from The Kevin Toney 3 – headed by the piano player and one-time leader of the legendary Blackbyrds – and it's a nicely melodic set of soulful trio jazz! There's a warm, affectionate vibe throughout, and it's played by skillful veterans with genuine passion. Toney composed, produced and arranged in collaboration with bassist Michael Bradford, and the trio is completed by the great drummer Chris Coleman. They're working with a range moods that roll from smoothly measured to charged and anthemic. Solid stuff! Includes "New American Suite", "Love Is All We Need", the slow-building standout "A Soulful Union", "Spacious Skies", "Cyberia", "The Entertainer", "E Pluribus Unum", "In God We Trust" and "Family Times – Getting Happy".

Phife and Tip are still on point lyrically, and honestly, this is pretty much the last LP that Tribe dropped that's got nearly all hits and no misses on it. With the cuts "Award Tour", "Midnight", "Electric Relaxation", "Clap Your Hands", "Oh My God", "The Chase, Part II", and "Keep It Rollin". LP, Vinyl record album

A really great album from the revived 70s version of The Tymes – a group who draw on a long legacy of harmonies in Philly soul, and who work here in a setting that really brings out their best! The whole record was produced and directed by Billy Jackson – and it's got a Philly/New York studio feel that pushes the group way past the simplicity of their earlier hits – some great arrangements from Richie Rome that echo some of the best Sigma Sound styles of the time, and which let the quintet vocals really soar out in a mix of uptempo grooves and even better midtempo moments. Titles include "To The Max", "If I Can't Make You Smile", "It's Cool", "God's Gonna Punish You", "Only Your Love", "Goin Through The Motions", and the sweet stepper "Hypnotized". CD features two bonus tracks – single mixes of "Only Your Love" and "God's Gonna Punish You". CD

The album's got the same jazzy references you'll find on the best work by Donny Hathaway – best heard on the sublime track "Golden Lady", which gets our clear vote for one of the best songs ever! Just about every track is great, though – and the album features the big hits "Living For The City", "All In Love Is Fair", "Higher Ground", and "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing" – plus "He's Misstra Know It All", "Jesus Children Of America", and "Too High". CD has 24 bit digital remastering, with original artwork and lyrics. CD
