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 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

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".

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 ... $34.99
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.

Antonio Pinto & Ed CortesCity Of God – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Milan, 2002. Used ... $7.99
A now-legendary soundtrack for the internationally acclaimed film City Of God – one that features some incredible new Brazilian funk by the team of Antonio Pinto & Ed Cortes – plus a good smattering of older numbers from the 70s Samba Soul generation, the inspiration for the sound of the film! The set's as great as any of our collections of classic Brazilian funk from years back – overflowing with wild percussion, mad guitars, and choppy rhythms that never let up. Original tracks include "Meu Nome E Ze", "A Transa", "Estoria Da Boca", "Funk Da Virada", "Vida De Otario", and "Morte Ze Pequeno" – plus older tracks that include "Na Rua Na Chuva Na Fazenda" by Hyldon, "Metamorfose Ambulante" by Raul Seixas, "Nem Vem Que Nao Tem" by Wilson Simonal, and "No Caminho Do Bem" by Tim Maia.

Donna Summer & OthersThank God It's Friday – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Columbia, 1978. Very Good+ 2LP + 12" ... $1.99
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.

Tiny TimGod Bless Tiny Tim ... LP
Reprise, 1968. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
One of the weirdest albums of the 60s, and a surprisingly big hit for the legendary Tiny Tim – a character then know to TV audiences for his appearances on Laugh-In and other shows – but an artist who sounds surprisingly culture-counter all these years later! The album's got some wonderfully odd elements in the production and arrangements – the former by Richard Perry, the latter by Artie Butler – all in that hip faux-nostalgia style that was huge in the Warner/Reprise universe of the time. And although Tim's certainly weirder and maybe goofier than Harper's Bizarre, Van Dyke Parks, and Randy Newman – you can definitely hear a through line to that scene in this album – as well as links to other odd 60s moments by folks like Brute Force or John Simon. Tunes are both old and new, and all are completely remade by Tiny Time – songs that include the hit "Tip Toe Thru The Tulips", plus a fantastic cover of the Biff Rose tune "Fill Your Heart", and "The Coming Home Party", "The Other Side", "Daddy Daddy What Is Heaven Like", "Welcome To My Dream", "The Viper", and "On The Old Front Porch".

New Otis G JohnsonEverything – God Is Love 78 ... LP
Numero, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

New VariousGood God – Apocryphal Hymns ... CD
Numero, 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Hardly the gospel of your father's generation – and hardly even the gospel of previous Numero releases either – as the set's a wonderfully offbeat batch of tracks that definitely lives up to the "apocryphal" in the title! Production sounds and musical styles go way past the mainstream – and lots of these numbers feel like secular soul from the definite left end of the spectrum in the 70s – especially the mellower cuts, which have a trippy quality that comes from weird instrumentation and unusual studio work – often matched by vocal presentation that's anything but spiritual, and which feels more like Darondo overall! These tunes are a real discovery – a deeper level of unusual gospel recordings than even the funk and or soul sides featured on other compilations – all pulled from the hinterland of self-released albums and singles from back in the day. As usual, Numero's done as great of job with the notes and packaging as they have with the music – really telling the full tale of this unusual stream of music – in a smoking set that features "That's All I Need" by Sensational Saints, "A Message Especially From God" by Robert Vanderbilt & The Foundation Of Souls, "Come Holy Spirit" by God's Band, "Faith" by Soul Superiors, "Can't Run This Race Alone" by Flying Eagles Gospel Singers, "Searching For The Truth" by Dwain Vinyard, "Get Involved" by Jonah Thompson, and "I Hear You Calling" by Francis Reneau & The Mission Singers.

Gene AmmonsGot My Own ... LP
Prestige, 1973. Very Good ... $2.99
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. Titles include "God Bless The Child", "Strange Fruit", "Fine & Mellow", "Lady Sings The Blues", "Play Me", "Tin Shack Out Back", and "Ben". LP, Vinyl record album

Fontella BassFree ... LP
Paula, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Very righteous work from Fontella Bass – an album done after her time at Chess Records, and after her work in Paris with the Art Ensemble Of Chicago – in a heartfelt, southern soul mode that's totally great! Fontella's back working with producer Oliver Sain, who first brought her fame back in the 60s – but the sound is a bit more sophisticated than before, drenched with roots from gospel and country soul, but also inflected with some of the more righteous modes of the early 70s too. Fontella's vocals are incredible – with a range that should have made her one of the leading ladies of soul in the 70s – and titles include "To Be Free", "I Need Love", "Wiping Tears", "Hold On this Time", "Talking About Freedom", and "My God My Freedom My Home".

Jon Batiste & Stay HumanSocial Music ... CD
Razor & Tie, 2013. New Copy Gatefold ... $7.99 13.98
A really unique album from pianist Jon Batiste – a set that's straight jazz at some points, a bit Crescent City at others, but always with a feel that's very individual – and one of the freshest new styles we've heard in years! Jon's instrumental tracks are wonderful – full of rich feeling and color that comes not just from his own work on piano and other keyboards, but also from the quintet's instrumentation – which occasionally features tuba used in this unusual bassy-bottom mode – alongside great alto from Eddie Barbash. Some numbers are vocal tracks – with lyrics that are personal, and surprisingly powerful – usually relatively simple, but integrated with the instrumentation at a level that's very different than the usual jazz vocal mode. Titles include "It's Alright", "Lonely Cry In Manhattan", "D Sharp Movement 1", "The Spirit Is With Us", "Express Yourself", "Let God Lead", "San Spirito", and "Naima's Love Song". CD

Beach BoysPet Sounds (mono & stereo mixes) ... CD
Capitol, 1966. Used Gatefold ... $6.99
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". Includes mono and stereo mixes of the whole album! CD

Fabrizio BossoPurple ... CD
Verve (Italy), 2013. New Copy ... $16.99
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

Bush BabeesGravity (single vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1996. Very Good ... $11.99
While we did like the Bush Babees first LP, it veered a bit further into the commercial realm than we care for on some cuts, probably due to Jermaine Dupri's involvement. This second effort, available only as a promo on vinyl, is the one to check for. There's less of the ragga style here, and tight post-Native Tongues production by Mr. Man, Shawn J Period, the Ummah, Rahzel and Pos of De La. In fact we'd be tempted to call this second generation Native Tongues, if it didn't stand so well on it's own, and merit guest spots that seem more like full fledged participation by Q-tip and Mos Def. Includes "God Complex", "Melting Plastic", "The Love Song", "Gravity", "Wax", "3 MCs", "Rock roots", "SOS", "Maybe", "The Beatdown", "The Ruler", "In Meh Dreams" and "The Ninth Presentation".

The sound here is a perfect summation of Doug's early genius – his own work on organ and keyboards, never overdone and mixed perfectly with a righteous array of acoustic sounds from Rene McLean on alto and tenor and Olu Dara on trumpet – both players who soar to the skies on waves of energy begun by Carn! Wife Jean Carn sings on a number of tracks – with this heavenly style that's mighty righteous – every bit as soulful as her later work at Philly International, but in a very different way. The set includes Doug's great reading of "Naima" – plus other wonderful cuts that include "Power & Glory", "Feel Free", "Jihad", "Fatherhood", and "God is One". CD

The Chi-Lites are one of the best harmony acts ever to come out of the Windy City – and while at the Brunswick label during the late 60s and early 70s, leader Eugene Record forged a sound that became a virtual blueprint for the Chicago group sound of the next decade to come. The harmonies are impeccable on the record – as you probably know if you've already heard hits like "Have You Seen Her", "(For God's Sake) Give More Power To The People", "Lonely Man", "Oh Girl", "The Coldest Days Of My Life", "A Letter To Myself", and "Homely Girl".

Rootsy gospel from The Como Mamas – a tremendous trio of female singers, working here in an all-acapella mode that's completely sublime! The set's an offshoot of the Como Now project done by Daptone a few years ago, and has the same timeless feel – quite a difference from the heavy funk you might normally hear on Daptone, yet equally soulful all the way through! The tunes are spiritual, but served up with more than enough depth to please any fan of secular soul, too – and the lack of any instrumentation, mixed with straightforward production, all makes the record feel like some lost indie label gem from decades ago. Titles include "Nobody's Fault But Mine", "Peace Of Mind", "Thank Him Enough", "God Is Good To Me", "I Know It Was The Blood", "Old Landmark", "Ninety Nine & A Half Won't Do", and "Soon I Will Be Done".

Sam CookeTribute To The Lady ... CD
Keen/Andex (Spain), 1959. Used ... $23.99
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

Jamie Cullum's second album for Verve, and quite possibly an even stronger pop effort than the first! Cullum's still got plenty of his jazz roots intact, but he's also going here for a tighter groove than before – one that has his catchy original tunes nicely focused on the hooks, yet still presented in a relatively stripped-down mode that has Jamie's piano work driving most of the groove. There's a few mis-steps here – like Dan The Automator's help on "Get Your Way" – but overall, most of the record retains the gentle charm that first got Cullum going, yet also manages to improve on it a bit too. And with a few more steps, Jamie will be quite far from jazz – but that seems to be a very good thing for his career overall! Titles include "Catch The Sun", "7 Days To Change Your Life", "Nothing I Do", "London Skies", "Get Your Way", "Mind Trick", "21st Century Kid", and "Oh God". CD

Delmore, 2012. Used ... $1.99
Beautiful stuff from singer Diana Darby – one of our favorite voices in the indie folk landscape! There's a hushed tone to Diana's voice that softens some fairly heavy lyricism – on personal songs that manage to speak the plain, sometimes harsh truths of love and spirituality with a fragile, hypnotic beauty. She accompanies herself on guitar, and the other instrumentation is as subtle and strong as her singing and songcraft – with light percussion, cello, bass, pedal steel, banjo and sax. Diana has been with Delmore Recordings for over a decade now – the label that's doing the world such a service by unearthing archival Karen Dalton – and it's great to hear new music on Delmore that'll truly stand the test of time just as strongly! Includes "Looking For Trouble", "Snow Cover Me", "If Love", "Spinning", "Buttercup", "Oh Butterfly", "Ugly Little Toad", "Heaven", "The Alphabet", "Elena", "Little One" and "Talking To God". CD

Denny certainly didn't invent the tropical style of easy listening that came to be known as "exotica" in the 50s – but with a record like this, he delivered the goods better than anyone else – by taking away all the too-sweet styles of Hawaiian music, and serving up a stripped-down, jazzy kind of sound! The album features Denny's classic original quartet – with Arthur Lyman on vibes and Augie Colon on bongos – and titles include "Stone God", "Jungle Flower", "Busy Port", "Lotus Land", and his hit recording of "Quiet Village".

David Van DePitte arranged and conducted the whole album – with soaring orchestrations mixed with smooth modern soul, in a style that reminds us a lot of the work of Charles Stepney at Cadet, who'd been doing this sort of thing for years but with less success. In the hands of Marvin Gaye, though, the material has an amazing quality – and all the disparate elements of the album are fused together in one powerful message by Marvin's incredible voice. One that we never tire of, and a record to be listened to all the way through every time. Titles include "What's Goin On", "Save The Children", "Flyin High (In The Friendly Sky)", "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)", and "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)". This expanded edition includes the B-side tracks "God Is Love" and "Sad Tomorrow". CD

Joe Gibbs' great and rare dub set Dub Serial – with JG handling production of the heavyweight rhythms – purportedly the very first Joe Gibbs dub LP and it's a great one!

Includes "Satta Mmassa Gana Version", "More Dub Version", "Love Me Girl Version", "Money In My Pocket Version", "Rainy Night In Georgia Version", "God Bless The Children Version", "Be The One Version", "He Prayed Version" and more. 12 in all.

Al GreenTokyo Live ... CD
Cream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. Used ... $14.99
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".

Scott HamiltonRemembering Billie (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
Blue Duchess, 2013. New Copy ... $16.99
Scott Hamilton seems a bit too young to actually remember a time when Billie Holiday walked this planet, but his music here definitely echoes a classic era of jazz – with a rich tenor sound that's always been steeped in plenty of influence from Lester Young and Ben Webster! The album's got a laidback, understated feel – very much in the mode we've come to expect from Hamilton over the years – a strong focus on his own tight tenor solos in the lead, with gentle support from Tim Ray on piano, Dave Zinno on bass, and Jim Gwin on drums. Duke Robillard makes a guest appearance on acoustic guitar on two titles – and tracks include "This Year's Kisses", "Them There Eyes", "I'll Never Be The Same", "God Bless The Child", and "You're My Thrill".

New HeadhuntersSurvival Of The Fittest ... LP
Arista, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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".

Joey HeathertonJoey Heatherton Album ... CD
MGM/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $22.99
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

Sony, 1960s/1970. Used 4CDs/DVD ... $24.99
An excellent anthology of rare Hendrix – featuring previously unreleased recordings of songs we've never heard from Jimi, alternate recordings of staples, incendiary live recordings and tracks from Jimi's early years as a sideman – plus the full length Jimi Hendrix: Voodoo Child documentary on DVD! It's an amazing set tracing Jimi's roots as a session player for soul stars, through his iconic days as a rock guitar deity. Disc 1 of the 4CD set is the only one that features a wealth of tracks that have been previously released – the remaining discs are heavily weighted with unreleased tracks and alternate versions – tracks from the mid 60s featuring Jimi on sessions for the Isley Brothers, Don Covay, Frank Howard & The Commanders, Little Richard and others. Titles include "Testify" and more with the Isley Brothers, "Mercy, Mercy" and "Can't Stay Away" with Don Covay, "I Don't Know What You Got But It's Got Me" with Little Richard, "Instant Groove" with King Curtis, "My Diary" and "Utee" with Rosa Lee Brooks and more.

Other titles include "Betsy In A White Dress", "Sport & Iris", "The .44 Magnum Is A Monster", and "God's Lonely Man". CD

Thelma HoustonThelma Houston (MoWest) ... LP
MoWest, 1972. Very Good ... $5.99
Thelma Houston's first album for Motown – and the start of a tremendous run of music in the 70s! The set's a great mix of modes – with vocals from Thelma that definitely show her roots in gospel – and rich, mature backings that give Houston the same sort of star treatment that Diana Ross would get during her early solo years – or which Dionne Warwick was getting over at Warner! Like the latter, Thelma's got a great way of being smooth, yet still keeping it real – and the set sparkles with warm soulful backings by Artie Butler, Gene Page, and Michael O'Martian. Tracks include "What If", "Black California", "Blackberries", "And I Never Did", "And I Thought You Loved Me", "There Is A God", and "I'm Letting Go". LP, Vinyl record album

Anita KerrVelvet Voices & Bold Brass ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Anita Kerr was a hugely successful arranger during the 60s Nashville scene – but even better was her work at the head of her tight vocal quartet, an amazing ensemble that had a sound similar to other groovy groups like The Free Design or The Singers Unlimited. 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".

Priest takes a deeper, more spiritually minded approach to the mic than most of the Wu Tang canon – and this fairly under the radar release is a worthy set for Wu completists. Titles include "I Believe", "4 Tomorrow", "A Crying Heart", "Hood Nursery", "Redemption", "Profits Of Man", "The World", "God's Time", "Born 2 Die" and more – plus the bonus track "The End Is Coming".

Last PoetsLast Poets/This Is Madness (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Douglas/Snapper (UK), 1970/1971. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 17.98
The first two Last Poets albums back to back in one great 2CD set! The Last Poets is the first album by the second group to call themselves the Last Poets – and as fierce a document of their rich talents as you'll ever find – bursting forth with anger and righteousness at a level as tight as Gil Scott-Heron's first album! The group here is the key second lineup of the ensemble of wordsmiths – comprised of Abiodun Oyewole, Alafia Pudim, and Omar Ben Hassan, plus the percussionist Nilaja – and most cuts feature only spare percussion backing over the spoken protest poetry – delivered with a brutal edge that really sums up the righteous politics of the time. Titles include "Run, N*gger", "On The Subway", "When The Revolution Comes", "Jones Comin' Down", "Black Thighs", "N*ggers Are Scared Of Revolution", and "Wake Up, N*ggers" – all of which should give you a good picture of what's going on with the record! This Is Madness is one of the Last Poets' greatest albums – and one of their most sophisticated as well! Gone are the rough-hewn rhymes of the group's first album, and in their place are better arranged, more thought-out tracks that mix in a wealth of musical influences – and which expand the group's verbal expression past simple protests, and into the realm of Jazzoetry that became their trademark during the mid 70s. Tracks include "Related to What", "Black Is", "White Man's Got a God Complex", "Black People What Y'All Gonna Do", and "This is Madness" – and a number of tracks are preceded by strong and forceful chants before the lyrics kick in! Deluxe package comes with 2 CDs – and bonus tracks that include "Sport" and "Spoon" by Lightnin Rod – plus "Doriella Du Fontaine", which features Lightnin Rod and Jimi Hendrix! CD

Manfred MannMy Little Red Book Of Winners (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Ascot/Sundazed, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99 19.98
A great step forward for Manfred Mann – a record that's deeper, stronger, and nastier than previous efforts – as evidenced by their wicked take on Burt Bacharach's "My Little Red Book"! What the cats do to that tune perfectly sums up their genius at this point – a sharp fusion of blues and soul influences, put together in ways that are really different than other UK combos of the period – often past any cliches that would show their roots too much, and with the start of a sneer that would appear more strongly from other fronts in the 60s. Original tunes include "You're For Me", "The One IN The Middle", and "Without You" – and the set also features versions of "Brother Jack", "Poison Ivy", "With God On Our Side", and "My Little Red Book". LP, Vinyl record album
