Marvin blew everyone's mind when he unleashed this amazing political soul tune – not only just because he'd moved past the simple love songs of earlier years, but also because he was working with an amazingly complicated approach to soul music, one that would touch the work of others for years to come. Classic. 7-inch, Vinyl record

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".

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!)

Cali mic veteran Wildchild – perhaps best known for his work with with Madlib and DJ Romes in Lootpack, one of the early Stones Throw units that helped cement that label's west coast legend – but his solo work is top shelf, too! Here he's found a nice home on Georgia Anne Muldrow's and Dudley Perkins's Someothaship label – along with his fellow Likwit Allstars – in a decidedly west coast funk mode, with production by Georgia and appearances by Chalice, Jamie Lidell, Steve Arrington, Aloe Blacc and more! ncludes "Fun-Key", "Who New", "Set It Off", "My Girls" and "Body Movin'" all feat Chalice, the Kev Brown-produced "Soldier Story" feat Aloe Blacc, "Boogaloo Anthem" feat Steve Arrington, "Which Way Is Up" feat JRO and "Jamie Lidell", "Clap", ""Caught Up", "Inspiration" and more.

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.

New Donna Summer & OthersThank God It's Friday – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Columbia, 1978. Used 2LP + 12" ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

New Chi-Lites(For God's Sake) Give More Power To The People ... LP
Brunswick, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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 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.

Atlantic, 1971. Sealed ... $1.99
Yipes, this must have been a clear indication of just how popular the show really was! The album's little more than bits lifted off the TV soundtrack – with bits that include "Why God Made Hands", "Sweety Pie Roger", "VD Day", "God is Black", and "Jury Duty". We're guessing that this one probably secretly sold more to the middle-American right wingers who were buying Barry Goldwater records a few years before – than it did to the New York liberals who could get the irony of the material.

New Beach BoysBeach Boys 69 – Live In London ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Near Mint- ... $6.99
The Beach Boys live in London at the end of the 60s – working here without Brian Wilson in tow – as indicated by a postcard addressed to him back home, displayed prominently on the front cover! Despite Brian's absence, the group's still in fine form – harmonically tight, and returning to a number of earlier themes in their songs – singing in front of what must clearly be a hugely enthusiastic crowd, if we're to judge by the applause. The concert was something of a reminder to the group that they had plenty to offer, even through Brian's ups and downs – and in a way, it really set the stage for the reputation and touring the group would do strongly in the 70s. Titles include "Bluebirds Over The Mountain", "God Only Knows", "Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring", "Aren't You Glad", "Do It Again", "Wake The World", "Darlin", and "Wouldn't It Be Nice".

Capitol, Mid 60s. Used 2 CDs ... $14.99
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

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

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. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
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

Columbia, 1963. Very Good ... $3.99
A great early album by Oscar – one that focuses on his own compositions, and a few other hip tunes written by other jazz players, with new vocals added by Oscar! These kind of tracks are the stuff that made him a legend instantly – strongly voiced vocal tunes, handled with a flair that few other singers could match, save for Jon Hendricks, who also shared Oscar's talent for crafting a jazz-based lyric. Arrangements are by Oscar's hometown talent Floyd Morris – and titles include "One Foot In the Gutter", "The Snake" (later covered by Al Wilson), "So Help Me (A Little 3/4 For God & Co)", "The Tree & Me", and marvelous lyrical versions of Miles Davis' "All Blues" and Duke Pearson's "Jeanine". Essential stuff for jazz juice fans! LP, Vinyl record album

Sam CookeTribute To The Lady ... CD
Keen/Andex (Spain), 1959. Used ... $14.99
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

George FreemanFranticdiagnosis ... LP
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".

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.

A genre-bending album from harmonica player Peter Ivers – a set that madly blends together jazz, rock, blues, and elements of modern composition – all with a sound that's unlike anything else we can describe! In another setting, Ivers might just be another white boy at the end of the 60s playing blues harmonica – but here, he's teamed up with vocalist Yolanda Bavan (ex-LHR), drummer Robert Pozar, and others in a weird exploration of soundshapes and musical themes. Instrumentation includes oboe, bassoon, soprano sax, and intermodulator – and Bavan's vocals are very wild, and often tripping up and down the scale to match the energy of the other grooves. Pozar's drumming is oddly funky in places too – making the record a strong one for beatheads as well as rockers – and titles include "Lord God Love", "Showroom Model", "Cat Scratch Fever", "Water Curtain", "Travelling Lightly", "Confession", "Dark Illumination", "Gentle Jesus", and "Knight Of The Blue Communion".

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.

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".

Charles McPherson plays with a large ensemble in this tribute to Billie Holiday – in a core group with piano by Barry Harris, guitar by Earl Dunbar, bass by Sam Jones, and drums by Leroy Williams – plus larger backing by a string section. Tracks are mostly Billie Holiday standards, arranged by Ernie Wilkins with a sweet sad tone that makes the record quite different than most of McPherson's work from the time. Titles include "Don't Explain", "Miss Brown To You", "Lover Come Back to Me", "Lover Man", and "God Bless the Child". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light wear.)

New Modern Jazz QuartetLost Tapes – Germany 1956 to 1958 (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
Jazz Haus (Germany), Late 50s. Sealed ... $14.99
Beautiful live recordings from the Modern Jazz Quartet – recorded in Germany in the late 50s, and featuring some especially great vibes from Milt Jackson! The recording quality is great on most cuts – and there seems to be an especially strong focus on Milt's contribution to the group – those wonderfully shaped tones that almost have a bell-like quality at times, but which still swing better than most other cats on vibes. One track features Milt solo on a version of "Tenderly" – and other titles include "Ralph's New Blues", "Willow Weep For Me", "I'll Remember April", "I Can't Get Started", "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen", and "JB Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Meshell NdegeocelloCookie – The Anthropological Mixtape ... CD
Maverick/Warner, 2002. Used ... $3.99
There's been a big break since Meshell Ndegeocello's last album – but from the sound of the album, it's been worth it! One of the baddest soul singers of the past decade is back in business, and sounding better than ever – serving up a fierce blend of beats and vocals, done in a more laidback format than her previous albums, one that makes for an album that's even more compelling and personal. Titles include "Earth", "Criterion", "Barry Farms", "Legged Griot Trio", "God, Fear, Money", "Hot Night", "Priorities", "Trust", and "Akel Dama". CD

Dave Pell SingersMah-Na-Mah-Na ... LP
Liberty, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A tremendously groovy album from Dave Pell – an arranger best known for his 50s jazz sides, but who's working here with a very hip group of singers! 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

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

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

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".

Pete Rugolo & His OrchestraAdventure In Sound - Brass ... LP
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good ... $6.99
Pete Rugolo was one of the best arrangers of the 50's, and although his work with Stan Kenton and June Christy is well-known, his better albums (like this one) don't really show up that often. Here, he conducts a tight set of orchestral tracks that feature solos by players like Pete Candoli, Don Fagerquist, Andre Previn, Howard Roberts, and Barney Kessel. The tracks have a warm wash of sound from the brass section, and soaring solos by the west coast jazzmen. Titles include "Salute", "Brass At Work", "My Mother's Eyes", and a nice version of George Wallington's "God Child". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove.)

Archie SheppCry Of My People ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
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

Steely DanRoyal Scam ... LP
ABC, 1976. Very Good+ ... $7.99
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".

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
