James BrownSay It Loud – I'm Black & I'm Proud ... LP
Polydor, 1969. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
A bomb! The title of this one says it all – a burning anthem of pride and power, issued in 1969, at the end of one of the most troubling decades in America. James answers all the Uncle Tom cries from his critics – and comes up with "Say It Loud", an instant chant that was taken up around the world, and which still packs a pretty hard punch today! The album's filled with other excellent cuts – like the tasty funk number "Lickin' Stick", with some rocket-driven guitar, and the great instrumental "Shades of Brown". Other titles include "Goodbye My Love (parts 1&2)", "Let Them Talk", "I Love You", and "I Guess I'll Have To Cry Cry Cry". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousHarry Smith's Anthology Of American Folk Music Volume 4 – Rhythmic Changes (200 gram vinyl) ... LP
Folkways/Mississippi, 1920s/1930s/1940s. New Copy 2LP (reissue).... $34.99
A landmark collection of music – the now-famous series of American Folk Music volumes put together by Harry Smith in the 50s! The work here spans the space of a few early decades of recorded music – all in styles expertly chosen by Smith, with countless examples of music that might have fallen beneath the sands of time if not otherwise included in the series! Even back at the original release of the collection, the series was a crucial bit of musical archeology – and over the ensuing space of decades, has only gone onto become even more important. This 4th volume was never issued in the 50s – but finally saw the light of day as a collection in 2000 – still from older rare records, and still very much in the best spirit of the initial volumes. Styles run the gamut from blues to roots to folk and other styles in between – and this fourth volume features work by Jesse James, Monroe Brothers, Sister Clara Hudmon, Al Hopkins & The Buckle Busters, Uncle Dave Macon, Roosevelt Graves, The Carter Family, Arthur Smith Trio, Blue Sky Boys, Memphis Jug Band, and many others! LP, Vinyl record album
(Really amazing package – 2 very heavy piece of vinyl, in a fabric-covered, heavy cardboard gatefold – even more durable than the original pressing! Limited to 2000 copies.)

VariousLondon Is The Place For Me Vol 6 – Mento, Calypso, Jazz, & Highlife From Young Black London ... LP
Honest Jons (UK), 1950s. New Copy 2LP Gateflod .... $16.99
London's always been one of the hippest cities in the world – but back during the postwar years, there was an especially wonderful outpouring of music on the scene – a rich array of new sounds and styles pulled from around the globe – as so many residents from crumbling British empire came to live in the UK! Musicians and listeners arrived in London with plenty of cultural baggage on hand – influences from the Caribbean, West Africa, and India too – plus other smaller scenes that once fell under the British banner, all now the fuel for the cultural fire that was happening in England! The title here tells plenty about the music being made in this newly-formed scene – bits of African highlife, Jamaican calypso, American jazz, Cuban Latin, and more – all filtered into the modernism of the 50s, and given a new twist that was decidedly urban as well. The package may well be the most impressive so far in this legendary series – and is certainly the one that moves the farthest past any sort of easy expectations or cultural conventions. Titles include "The Escape" by Dizzy Reece, "Mambo Contempo" by Ginger Johnson, "Life In Britain" by Mighty Terror, "Sway" by Buddy Pipp's Highlifers, "Song Of Joy" by Rupert Nurse's Calypso Band, "Joe Louis Calypso" by Lord Beginner, "Uncle Joe" by Fitzroy Coleman Quintet, "Me Donkey Want Water" by Tony Johnson, "Belly Lick" by Eric Hayden, "Nigeria Odowoyin" by West African Rhythm Brothers, and "Football Calypso" by King Timothy.
