Nathan HainesPoet's Embrace ... LP
Warner (UK), 2013. New Copy .... $14.99
A really great change for saxophonist Nathan Haines – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given how much we already liked him before! The set's a straight jazz outing – of the kind that really lets Haines' strengths on reeds shine forth beautifully – soaring out soulfully in ways that are quite different than his more groove-oriented recordings – yet still equally soulful! Nathan's tenor is wonderful – as deep in tone and rich in feeling as some of the greats of the 60s generation – yet informed with a slight spiritual sense of phrasing as well, even though the overall production and setting is downright classic. The group's a quartet – with Kevin Field on piano, Alain Koetsier on drums, and Thomas Botting on bass – and titles include the Haines' originals "Realisation", "Universal Man", "Ancestral Dance", "The Poet's Embrace", and "Consequence" – plus a version of Roy Brooks' "Eboness".

New Eddie Harris & Les McCannSecond Movement ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1971. Used .... $8.99
A massive batch of funky soul jazz – the Second Movement (to the first album Swiss Movement) of the collaboration of Eddie Harris and Les McCann! The vibe here is even freer, and hipper, than on the first set – with a host of long tracks that have Les really working the Fender Rhodes into some great grooves, as Eddie blows along some mean, mad Varitone with equal charm! Players include Bernard Purdie, Buck Clarke, and Cornell Dupree – and titles include "Saima", "Carry On Brother", "Universal Prisoner", and the brilliant sample cut "Shorty Rides Again"! CD

ZZ HillLet's Make A Deal ... LP
Columbia, 1978. Very Good .... $4.99
As with Johnny Taylor, ZZ Hill was a rootsier soul singer who was brought into the ranks of Columbia Records for some nice smooth recordings in the late 70s. This album's got ZZ singing with arrangements and production by Bert DeCoteaux, and on a set of tracks written by Jimmy Lewis, Fredrick Knight, Harvey Scales, and ZZ himself. Titles include "Let's Make A Deal", "Message To The Ladies", "Universal Love", and "Near But Yet So Far". LP, Vinyl record album

Masaaki HiraoNippon Rock N Roll – The Birth Of Japanese Rokabirii 1958 to 1960 (10 inch vinyl) ... LP
Big Beat (UK), Late 50s. New Copy .... $19.99
Rare rock from the Japanese scene of the postwar years – but sounds that definitely have a universal appeal overall! Masaaki Hirao is way more than just a novelty remake of American rockers of the time – as he's got a sharp-edged sound that easily rivals the best we had to offer here in the US – the charm of Elvis, the propulsion of Johnny Burnette, and the offbeat appeal of Buddy Holly! Yet the sounds here are often quite their own thing, too – especially on the Japanese language numbers which make up most of the set, and which have Masaaki stepping away from straight American cover versions, and really doing some great things on his own. The guitar lines are especially great – recorded with brilliant twang and echo that really matches the power of the vocals – and the set features some mighty nice live tracks that are even more biting than the studio material! 10 cuts in all – including "Lawdy Miss Clawdy", "Hoshi Wa Nandemo Shitteiru", "Isuki No Komoriuta Rock", "Crazy Love", "Ooh My Soul", "Jenny Jenny", "Miyo Chan", and "Blue De Memphis".

Jones Family SingersSpirit Speaks ... CD
Arts+Labor, 2014. New Copy .... $11.99
A contemporary gospel group, but one with a killer sound that really takes us back to the best styles of 60s and 70s soul-influenced ensembles! The Jones Family Singers is a tight, well-crafted outfit – one who express themselves with plenty of secular passion alongside their spiritual message – a universal, earthbound appeal that's gotten them some great attention in the non-gospel world! Patriarch Bishop Jones comes from a long line of Texas gospel singers – and he puts that legacy to work strongly here, and really keeps the whole record crackling – without any of the too-polished modes of more contemporary gospel records. Titles include "Bones In The Valley", "Going Home", "Down On Me", "Leaning On You", "Through It All", and "You Woke Me Up This Morning". CD

KemKemistry ... CD
Motown, 2003. Used .... $4.99
The debut release of a new soul superstar – the magnificent Kem, an all-in-one artist with a sound that's tremendous! Kem wrote, arranged, and produced the whole album himself – wrapped up in banks of keyboards, lush rhythms, and some exquisite vocals that have lots of nice jazzy phrasing. His sound is a unique hybrid of a variety of influences – all blended into a style that's deep enough to please any NuSoul connoisseur, and universal enough to ensure him a huge audience in years to come. Titles include "Matter Of Time", "Say", "Miss You", "Inside", "You Are", "Brotha Man", and "Love Calls". CD

Evelyn Champagne KingCall On Me (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1980. New Copy .... $13.99
A wonderful gem from Evelyn Champagne King – her third effort with the great producer T Life, who always helped bring out the most soulful elements in King's music! Life's got a way of grooving, but never going for modes that are too easily commercial – still lots of disco and club in the mix, but with more than enough space for Evelyn to really stretch out and be her own woman on the vocals, too! This mix comes out especially well on some of the more midtempo groovers – which have this flourish and polish that's really wonderful – way beyond some of the cliches of King's contemporaries, and with a personal quality that really comes through right away. Some of these cuts include "Your Kind Of Loving" and "Call On Me" – both real standouts on the record – and other numbers include "Let's Get Funky Tonight", "I Need Your Love", "Universal Girl", "Bedroom Eyes", and "Just A Little Bit Of Love". CD features bonus tracks – "Let's Get Funky Tonight (12" mix)", plus "I Love You", "Is It Good", "Sweet Delight", and "Long Time Waiting On You". CD

KleeerI Love To Dance (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/FTG, 1979. New Copy .... $13.99
The first-ever album from Kleeer – and a set that's already got them head and shoulders above most of their contemporaries! The set's got just a bit of the keyboards that would later really define the Kleeer sound – and has some surprising disco elements, too – used by the quartet as a way to step away from the overblown mainstream of the time, into a groove that's leaner and cleaner for the next generation! The great Woody Cunningham is at the lead of the group – singing, drumming, arranging, and writing a good portion of the work – and the group members have already had plenty of experience as The Jam Band, Pipeline, and Universal Robot Band – years of background practice that's really helped them forge some very strong grooves. And while the title may reference the danceability of the times, there's also some nice deeper elements going on too – on titles that include "I Love To Dance", "To Groove You", "Kleeer Sailin", "Amour", "It's Magic", "Keep Your Body Workin", and "Tonight's The Night". CD features bonus tracks that include "Keep Your Body Workin (voc)", "Keep Your Body Workin (7" version)", "Tonight's The Night (7" version)", "It's Magic (long)", and "It's Magic (7" version)". CD

Fon KlementFon Klement (180 gram pressing) ... LP
BASF/Wah Wah (Spain), 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue).... $29.99
A Dutch dude, but one with a really universal appeal – and a quality that links his music to the hippest sounds of the UK scene on labels like Island or Harvest! Fon Klement is a singer-songwriter, but with none of the cheesier qualities that were coming into the American scene of self-indulgence of the early 70s – and instead has this great way of really holding back, and letting his English vocals slide in and out of well-crafted arrangements that beautifully blend bits of strings with folksier rock elements – all in a blend that's maybe not as hip as Nick Drake, but which definitely has a similar space in the universe. Titles include "It's You", "Wonder Why", "New Love", "Why", "Early Morning", "Song For A Blue Lady", and "Margaret". LP, Vinyl record album

Harvey MasonMVP – Most Valuable Player (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1981. New Copy .... $13.99
Harvey's fifth and final album for Arista – another win for the funk-soul-fusion MVP! Given that Harvey worked on some of the best fusion sessions of the 70s, it's more than safe to give him "most valuable player" award – because without his drums, many a record would have faltered! Here, though, Mason's much more in his all-out soul mode – singing, playing, and producing in a smooth blend of jazz and modern soul, still with some funky grit in the mix. It not only benefits greatly from his years as one of the great studio players, but even more so for his triple threat talent as a writer, producer and performer. Tracks are all quite tight and catchy – soul groovers with some funk. Feature arrangements from Kenny Mason, Patrice Rushen and Jerry Peters. Titles include "Universal Rhyme", "Don't Doubt My Lovin", "On and On", "You And Me", "Spell", and "How Does It Feel". This expanded edition from Soulmusic.com includes 2 bonus tracks: "How Does It Feel (UK Single)" and "On And On (UK Single)". CD

PleasureFuture Now ... CD
Fantasy/BGP (UK), 1979. New Copy .... $11.99
A wonderful album from Pleasure – a group who were already great before, but who really seem to hit a great new level with this late 70s classic! Pleasure started out as a sweet jazz/funk combo with a great edge to their music – but by the time of this set, they'd actually gotten even tighter and better – but all without losing their depth at all! Most of the group's contemporaries just got slick and commercial – but instead, Pleasure found a way to hone their skills wonderfully – and take on some new spacey and electric touches in the process – definitely pointing towards the funky future promised in the title. The set's filled with some of the funkiest and most soulful moments of the group's career – including "Space is the Place", which has great funky drums on the intro; the mellow "Thoughts of Old Flames", a real stunner with a great moody feel; and the classic "Glide", a great dancefloor groover that still stands up well. Other tracks are all great too – and include "Universal", "Strong Love", "Nothin To It", and "Dedication To The Past". CD

Sun RaSub-Dwellers – Space Poetry Vol 2 ... LP
Norton, Late 60s/1982. New Copy .... $12.99
Amazing sounds from Sun Ra – vocal recitations, weird words, and spoken bits – all set to some mighty cosmic music! The work here is all previously unissued, and pulled from rare tapes recorded in 1966, 1968, and 1982 – an amazing discovery in the Ra archive, with a real focus on his more poetic side! The set begins with some wonderfully echoey bits – Ra's vocals in the lead, and some cool abstract sounds and electronics behind him. Other tracks have even more obscure elements in the background, and a few others provide some more familiar jazz elements – but overall, the whole thing's got a wickedly spaced-out feel – very much what you might expect if you'd ever heard the myth of Ra before hearing one of his records! Titles include "The Universe Is Endless", "The Sub-Dwellers", "Music Is A Universal Language", "The Universe Sent Me", "A Cosmic Dimension Of Music", "They Taught Me To Share", and "Worship Of A Statue".

An amazing follow up to Ricardo Ray's first album of Jala Jala and Boogaloo tracks – a real killer Latin soul set that's even better than the first! The record's got a full-on style that kicks in from the very first note – a blend of uptight Latin tracks and some very groovy 60s-styled numbers with plenty of sock-soul touches – a definite boogaloo influence, but still some strong Puerto Rican modes too. Lyrics are mostly in Spanish, but the grooves have a universal appeal that kicks in no matter what the language! Stormin and groovy all the way through – with tracks that include "Tin Marin", "Mr. Trumpet Man", "More Richie", and "Musica Ye Ye". LP, Vinyl record album

The core of the book is in Japanese – including mini reviews on each of the records – but the visual information is universal, and offers up plenty for the English-reading customer – listings of hundreds of rare records that are essential for any collection of classics! The book is divided up into various sections – Latin Jazz, Salsa, Latin Disco/Rock, Merengue, and Pachanga/Descarga/Boogaloo – and the book is done in the same great style as some of our other Japanese discographies. 158 pages, softcover, with lots of color images.

Spacey sounds, soulful vocals and a boundlessly creative overall vibe from Sonnymoon – inspired stuff on Plug Research! The Plug Research label has been a reliable resource for leftfield electronic and cosmic hip hop soul styled artists for a few years now, and this is another winner! It's the duo of Anna Wise and Dane Orr – Anna's vocals floating beautifully over freewheeling, atmospheric, though insistent production – the kind of record hat you hear something new in each time you play it. Includes "Wild Rumpus", "Greatness", "Flit, Fleet, Float", "Nothing Thought", "Universal Appeal", "Others By", "Zone 2", "Every Summer Night", "Just Before Dawn" with strings by Miguel Atwood-Fergusion and more.

Tommy Stewart & OthersTommy Stewart's Disco Love Affair ... CD
Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s. New Copy .... $14.99
Amazing rare grooves from Tommy Stewart – the Atlanta studio wizard who cut some of the hippest club tracks in the south at the end of the 70s! This package digs way deeper than even Tommy's classic self-titled album – to feature some obscure and unreleased material that show the tremendous power of Stewart in the studio – the kind of energy that made him a one man powerhouse to rival some of the bigger teams turning out grooves at the major labels! As with his classics, all the tunes here have a great funky feel – not really disco, but more upbeat funk, turned towards the dancefloor – served up with lots of sharp edges on the rhythms that keep things mighty nice – and which avoid any too-familiar cliches of the time. In a way, Stewart's groove is a bit like the grittier club from P&P up north – as you'll hear on this set that features the cuts "Night Flight", "Beyond Love", "Hot Box", and "Everything's Made For Love" by Stewart – plus great collaborations with vocalist Stevo on "Pay The Price", "Universal Love", "Party Night", "Starry Eyes", "Livin For The City", "Jammin", and "Messing UP A Good Thing". Also features two Al Kent remixes, too! CD

Caterina ValenteLive At The Talk Of The Town/Caterina Valente Live ... CD
Vocalion (UK), 1969/1970. New Copy 2CD .... $16.99
Two different live albums from Caterina Valente – served up here in a single set! Live At Talk Of The Town is one of Valente's great albums in the US – upbeat, swinging, and with a very groovy feel that has Caterina sounding especially nice on some of the album's medley tracks – done with a feel that's a lot less hokey than you'd hear from other artists! The spoken bits show her German accent, but the rest have a groovier swinging feel – and the backings are surprisingly jazzy throughout, handled by Burt Rhodes, with vibes and bongos from the great Fats Sadi! Titles include an excellent "Bacharach Medley", plus "Parade Medley", "Mother Goosanova", "Falling In Love", "Canto De Ossanha", and "Spanish Medley". Caterina Valente Live is a record that's mostly sung in German, but one that also has a really universal appeal – thanks to backing from a cool jazz combo that includes MPS heavyweights Fats Sadi on vibes and bongos, and Sigi Schwab on guitar! Horst Jankowski directs the music, and other great instrumental elements include organ from Gotz Wendland and guitar and flute from Silvio Francesco – both mixed up in these really playful arrangements from Heinz Kiessling that show Valente's great ability to skirt both jazz and pop. There's some nice medley numbers – including "Musical Hit Parade", and "Italian Hit Parade" – plus versions of "Canto De Ossanha", "Singing My Song", "Falling In Love With Love", and "The Windmills Of Your Mind".

New Muriel WinstonA Fresh Viewpoint & Muriel Winston (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Strata East/Shout (Japan), 1974. New Copy Gatefold .... $19.99
One of the most unusual albums on the legendary Strata East label – an unusual mix of jazz and soul vocal material, put together by singer Muriel Winston with arrangements from the great Bill Lee! There's a relaxed, easygoing feel to the record – one that's upfront and personal on the tunes that feature Muriel in the lead on ballads, but gets a bit more righteous on some of the spoken passages, then feels really collaborative on some of the numbers that feature a chorus of younger singers (including Spike Lee's sister, Joy). The material is an unusual mix of styles – some straighter jazz vocals, some more spiritual – and the album's divided into two sides "The Universal Side" and "The Personal Side" – the latter of which features a number of lesser-known Tadd Dameron compositions. Lee handles the music direction and arrangements, and plays bass in a small combo that also features Clifford Jordan on flute, Stanley Cowell on piano, and Billy Higgins on drums. Winston's a vocalist with a slightly spiritual kind of sound, and some of the tracks on the record are nice light little ditties with piano by Stanley Cowell, drums by Billy Higgins, flute by Clifford Jordan, and bass by Lee. Titles include "Love Took the 7:10 Tonight", "I'm Never Happy Anymore", "We'll Remember Those Years", "Children's Trilogy", "A Song To Everyone In The World", "Soul Trane", and "Weekend". CD

Analog Africa (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy .... $22.99
Amazing sounds from 70s Ghana – a killer collection that really lives up to all the greatness of other collections on the Analogue Africa label! There's a sharpness here right from the start – an approach to funk that's really universal, and shows why collections from a generation like this move way past the context of standard world music modes – and instead unlock a rich version of the world in which music alone can build plenty of bridges – way beyond the context of politics or national boundaries! By that, we mean that any Anglo crate-digger can find plenty to love here – wicked drums, scratchy guitar, riffing Hammond, and monstrous bass that bounces these tunes beautifully from start to finish – sewing together the grooves in a way that will have you forgetting you can't even understand most of the lyrics. And yet, as with other titles on this great label, the music is also well-situated culturally too – thanks to a hefty set of notes and great images – which will give you plenty of visual discovery while you're digging the sounds on the disc. Titles include "Wop Me A Ka" by The African Brothers, "Do Your Own Thing" by De Frank's Band, "Aja Wondo" by Uppers International, "Loose Up Yourself" by Rob, "I Beg" by Tony Sarfo & The Funky Afrobisi, "Arabo" by K Frimpong, "Say Min Sy Soh" by Pierre Antoine & Vis A Vis, "God Is Love" by Complex Soundz, and "Kana Soro" by Los Issufu & His Moslems.

Way more than just another Blue Note compilation – as the set features a big number of cool under-exposed gems from the Blue Note scene overseas – including some excellent bits from the label in Japan and Italy! The set's a great sprinkling of gems from more recent years that illustrate the continuing influence of the classic years of the legendary label – all cuts that are remakes of older Blue Note songs from the 50s and 60s, but served up here in fresh versions with a great sense of variety. There's also a few numbers that show the recent EMI/Universal merger – which brought even more great artists into the Blue Note fold. Titles include "Summertime" by Soil & Pimp sessions with Jose James, "Ghana" by Nicola Conte with Gregory Porter, "Senor Blues" by David Sanborn, "Footprints" by Terence Blanchard, "Little B's Poem" by Akiko, "Maiden Voyage/Everything In Its Right Place" by Robert Glasper, "Night In Tunisia" by Toshio Matsura with Joes James, "Afrodisia" by Quasimode, "Adams Apple" by High Five, "Us Three" by Junko Onishi, "Un Poco Loco" by Jacky Terrasson with Bob Belden, "Blue Bossa" by Chick Corea, "Speak Like A Child" by Christian McBride with Nicholas Payton & Mark Whitfield, "Cleopatra's Dream" by Chihiro Yamanaka, and "Recado Bossa Nova" by Gonzalo Rubalcaba.

Incredible electronics from the French scene of the 70s – spacey, funky, trippy, and even a bit clubby too – a perfect cross-section of all the cool analogue elements that were ebbing forth from Paris at the time! A few of the bigger French artists broke big on these shores – often paving the way for soppier work of the next generation – but this set features a much deeper range of talents than we ever would have expected – plenty of cats who easily match the most experimental styles of the German prog electronics world, or the dark corners of Italian soundtrack composers, or even some of the fiercer grooves to come in the pre-house years in the clubs! Reading the set list, you might be surprised to hear some of these artists in the same company as each other – but hearing the set, you'll be wonderfully pleased at the way the whole thing comes together – a great range of cuts that includes "Motel Show" by Pierre Bachelet, "Shanti Dance (parts 1 & 2)" by Droids, "Magic Fly" by Space, "Temps X" by Didier Marouani, "Le Reve" by Patrick Juvet, "Le Bracelet" by Alain Gouraguer, "Rocket Man (inst)" by Rockets, "Disco Energy" by Universal Energy, "Love Machine" by Space Art, "Survol" by Francois De Roubaix, "Le Physique Et Le Figure" by Serge Gainsbourg, and "Spirit" by Frederic Mercier.

New VariousCosmic Machine – A Voyage Across French Cosmic & Electronic Avant Garde 1970 to 1980 (with bonus CD) ... LP
Because (France), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... $28.99
Incredible electronics from the French scene of the 70s – spacey, funky, trippy, and even a bit clubby too – a perfect cross-section of all the cool analogue elements that were ebbing forth from Paris at the time! A few of the bigger French artists broke big on these shores – often paving the way for soppier work of the next generation – but this set features a much deeper range of talents than we ever would have expected – plenty of cats who easily match the most experimental styles of the German prog electronics world, or the dark corners of Italian soundtrack composers, or even some of the fiercer grooves to come in the pre-house years in the clubs! Reading the set list, you might be surprised to hear some of these artists in the same company as each other – but hearing the set, you'll be wonderfully pleased at the way the whole thing comes together – a great range of cuts that includes "Motel Show" by Pierre Bachelet, "Shanti Dance (parts 1 & 2)" by Droids, "Magic Fly" by Space, "Temps X" by Didier Marouani, "Le Reve" by Patrick Juvet, "Le Bracelet" by Alain Gouraguer, "Rocket Man (inst)" by Rockets, "Disco Energy"b y Universal Energy, "Love Machine" by Space Art, "Survol" by Francois De Roubaix, "Le Physique Et Le Figure" by Serge Gainsbourg, and "Spirit" by Frederic Mercier.

BBE (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2CD .... $13.99
An incredible compilation of dancefloor soul & disco from the early 80s – rare, extended and previously unreleased mixes by NYC legend John Morales – featuring essential material from Logg, Universal Robot Band, Tony Adderly, Class Action, Inner Life and more! Morales was a part of the DJ remix scene that made club ready soul gems out of a bunch of the pop and soul hits of the day, but this compilation on BBE goes deeper than that for the cream of the crop of the post disco grooves of the day, most running on the long side for that unstoppable dancefloor approach, while keeping the song based soul sound fully in place. Essential! CD version has 19 tracks on 2CDs: "Ain't No Mountain High Enough Part I" (JM 4AM mix), "Breaking Down (Sugar Samba)" (JM After-Session M&M mix) by Julia & Company, "Barely Breaking Even" (club version) by Universal Robot Band, "I Ain't Mad At You" (JM extended M&M mix) by Tony Adderly, "Never Can Say Goodbye" (demo version) by La-Rita Gaskin, "All Over Your Face" (JM After-Session M&M mix) by Ronnie Dyson, "(Knock Out) Let's Go Another Round" (JM After-Session M&M mix) by Inner Life, "You Got (That Something)" by Logg and more, "Down For Double" (JM After-Session M&M mix) by Cubie Burke and more.

Le Smoke Disque, Late 60s/1970s. Used .... $5.99
Wickedly funky reworks of classics by Sly & The Family Stone – most of which are harder-hitting than the famous original versions! The package is a great assemblage of lesser-known cover versions – many of which are done in rough-edged, deep funk modes – not just by American groups, but from artists around the globe – showing the far far reach of Sly's music, even in the early days! The language is sometimes changed in the lyrics, but the grooves are totally universal – the chopped-up funk that Sly Stone and the Family cooked up in the SF scene of the late 60s – served up here in a wide variety of groovy new versions. Titles include "Sing A Simple Song" by Tomorrow's Children, "Thank You (extended album version)" by Kashmere Stage Band, "Stand" by He 6, "Thank You" by Blue Star Gang, "Everyday People" by Sacramento Senior High School 1970, "Family Affair" by Jimmy Stone, "Remember Who You Are" by Breakestra, "Are You Ready" by LA Carnival, "Loose Booty" by Horizons High School Band, "Sing A Simple Song' by Donald Seward, "Messin With Sly" by Hot Chocolate, and "I Want To Take You Higher" by Gougoush.

This one's compiled by Skye, and it features some killer cuts that have only ever been reissued on dodgy comps over the years – and which sound great together in this break-heavy extravaganza! More than a few classic sample cuts here – and in general, most of the cuts are not ones that show up on other sets.

Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Mid 70s. New Copy .... $15.99
Amazing sounds from the pre-Ayatollah years in Iran – an incredible blend of different global influences, coming together in the sort of sound you'd expect from one of the most progressive scenes in the Mid-East! The work here has some of the same psych elements of Turkish work from the time – but also borrows lots from other sources too – including elements of Bollywood grooves from India, heavy funk from the US, and even some of the more inventive post-colonial sounds from London and Paris! Vocals are almost never in English, but the song structures create a really universal feel to the music – a transcendent sound that's documented perfectly by the selections in this well-done set. Titles include "Asal" by Sattar, "Eshghe To" by Gita, "Dele Khoshbavar" by Shohre Soltai, "Asheghi Ham Hadi Dare" by Shahram, "Pichak" by Nooshafarin, "Tishe O Risheh" by Amir Rassaie, and "Yek Roose Taazeh" by Neli.

New Copy .... Around June 2, 2014
A really wonderful project that was years in the making – a mix of American club and Brazilian elements – put together by a group that includes members of Azymuth and Banda Black Rio, as well as the legendary Arthur Verocai! Jose Roberto Bertrami's the strongest contributor here – and the music really echoes that great late 70s/early 80s point when the Azymuth fusion groove crossed over into tighter, funkier territory – coming off here with a sound that's got really universal appeal and a wickedly classic vibe overall – like some unusual cross-breeding of Brazilian grooves and Salsoul Records! Vocals are by Mia Mendes and Marcina Arnold, but the instrumentation is even better than the lyrics – filled with jazzy touches, blended with bits of strings, and perfectly produced all the way through. Really tremendous stuff – one of the freshest records we've heard from Far Out in years – with titles that include "Mystery", "Keep Believing", "Dead Dance", "The Last Carnival", "A Disco Supreme", "Vendetta", and "Don't Cha Know He's Alright".

New VariousHaiti Direct – Big Band, Mini Jazz & Twoubadou Sounds 1960 to 1978 (with bonus CD) ... LP
1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... Spring 2014
A much-needed look at the confusing world of grooves from Haiti – a scene that's always been accessible to most listeners in the US, but never with the kind of focus and direction we need! Haitian records are often a bit perplexing to our crate-digging ears – they look great on the cover, usually feature a hip lineup of cats with jazz instruments, but often move into territory that's either too sweet or too loose – not the kind of heavier sounds we were expecting. Yet this set really brings the right sort of focus to Haitian music – and uses the Strut Records approach that's been tuned towards African and South American grooves in the past – all to pull out the funkiest, jazziest, grooviest tunes from the 60s and 70s. The package has a great set of notes that really illustrate the scene and styles behind the music on the disc – and titles include "Ce Pas" by Tabou Combo, "Pile Ou Face" by Les Loups Noirs, "Ti Garcon" by Ibo Combo, "Choc Vikings" by Les Vikings, "Ti Machine" by Les Animateurs, "Cote Moune Yo" by Super Jazz Des Jeunes, "Cochon St Antoine" by Ti Paris, "L'Artibonite" by Les Freres Dejean, "Suspann" by Caribbean Sextet, "Line" by Bossa Combo, and "Ti Lu Lupe" by Scorpio Universal.

Pink Elephant/Wah Wah (Spain), 1970. New Copy (reissue).... Just Sold Out!
A really rich, really moody little record – recorded on the Dutch scene at the start of the 70s, and done with this wonderfully universal blend of acoustic roots and sharper edges! Both guitar and harmonica figure heavily in the instrumentation – but the latter is hardly used in a bluesy way, as its rich tones and complex lines remind us more of jazz harmonica from Toots Thielmans – laid out over these slow-stepping grooves that have a nice folk-funk feel as the electric basslines trip out underneath moody lyrics. A really great set that's way more than just another rare record – the kind of set that would have hit worldwide appeal, had it been issued on labels like Harvest or Island. Titles include "Fire Child", "Easter Song", "Sick & Tired", "Overture", "Ballad Of The Sun", and "The Head". LP, Vinyl record album

TK/Shout (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD .... Just Sold Out!
A great look at the 12" single legacy of TK Records – and a set that goes way past the familiar album hits and chart singles from the label! There's some surprisingly unusual material here – either long mixes and rare takes of cuts by already-known TK artists – or some even groovier tracks from talents we never new worked with the label – including some great acts from the soul underground and the overseas scene as well! The overall flavor is disco, but there's also lots of variations too – funky club, boogie, and a whole lot more – on a double-length set of tracks that includes "Don't Stop" by Ish, "Get On Down" by King Sporty & The Roots Rockers, "Odyssey (part 2)" by Johnny Harris, "Dance To Freedom" by Sherman Hunter, "Moon Ride" by Universal Love, "Ooh Ooh I Like It" by Milton Wright, "Keep On" by King Tutt, "I Just Wanna Be Your Lovin Man" by The Imperials, "I Can't Turn The Boogie Loose" by The Controllers, "Cosmic Funk" by Mad Dog Fire Department, "Indigo Country" by Ultrafunk, "Safari (parts 1 & 2)" by Modern Sound Corporation, "What They're Doing Downtown" by Skybirst, and "Turn Me Turn Me Turn Me" by Mary Love.

Essential stuff! This 2 CD set includes the entirety of Albert Ayler's Live In Greenwich Village album – plus a huge amount of previously unreleased live material, played by the Ayler group in New York, during 1966 and 1967. Ayler's brother Don is on trumpet, and other players include Joel Freedman, George Steele, Bill Fowell, Beaver Harris, Sunny Murray, Alan Silva, and Henry Grimes. The tracks have the same intensity of Ayler's ESP work – and many tunes are quite long, very free and open. Titles include "Light In Darkness", "Divine Peacemaker", "Angels", "Omega Is The Alpha", "Universal Thoughts", "Change Has Come", "Infinite Spirit", and "Spiritual Rebirth". 14 tracks in all – and one of the most important slices of Ayler's career!

Selda packs a heck of a punch on this late 70s set – a record that's still got all the wonderful elements of her previous three albums – that unique mix of folksy roots, protest themes, and nicely trippy production! Selda's holding an electrified version of the baglama on the front cover – and the instrument really sounds great on the tracks throughout – piercing with a punctuated sound that's almost like an electric sitar, but a more more straightforward – a perfect accompaniment to the rich, flowing lines of Selda's vocals. None of the tunes are in English, but there's a really universal appeal to the music – as Selda's the kind of singer that's so expressive, one hardly needs to know the lyrics to get the meaning of her tunes. Titles include "Ona Don", "Hele Yar", "Ayaginda Kundura", "Hizir Pasa", "Cendarme", "Izin Ize Benzemiyor", and "Sorsunlar Beni". LP, Vinyl record album

There's still some of the old school jazz in the mix that we love from Mario's Schema work – but the album's also got a fuller production style at times, one that really expands the palette of Biondi's colors, and which has him working here with help from key guests who include Omar, Leon Ware, Al Jarreau, Incognito, and Chaka Khan – and even a bit of organ from the James Taylor Quartet! Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick helped co-write a good number of tracks on the set – and titles include "Shine On", "Come To Me", "Woman Woman", "What Have You Done To Me", "Never Stop", "La Voglia La Pazzia L'Idea", "Girl Blue", "Light To The World", and "Catch The Sunrise".

The album's got a perfect groove from start to finish – tight live instrumentation that's heavy on Fender Rhodes, served up with a focus that really serves Ruth's wonderful vocals – which have this floating, flowing quality that really matches the keyboards, but has more than enough power to drive home the English language lyrics too. And while we're not sure that Bulgaria's going to be the next hotbed of soul music, we've got great hopes for Ruth herself!

One of the hippest compilations of boogaloo work we've ever stocked – and one that goes way past the bigger names on Fania or Tico, into the underground of small labels from the late 60s! The tunes here are all especially rare – issued originally on labels that include Speed and Ghetto, and brought together beautifully here with an ear for soulful vocals, snapping rhythms, and some of the grooviest styles of the Latin Soul generation! The Speed recordings are especial favorites of ours, because the label had a really great way of setting up a groove, and often broke from more conventional Latin modes to hit some very unique rhythms. But all the work here is totally great – and titles include "Alla Tu" by Conjunto Universal, "Do Your Shing A Ling" by Pijuan, "I'll Be A Happy Man" by Latin Blues Band, "Return To Spanish Harlem" by Tony Middleton & Bobby Matos, "Latin Soul Boogaloo" by Paul Serrano, "One Way Ticket" by The Real Thing, "Symphony Sid In Acapulco" by Frankie Nieves, "Brass Boogaloo" by Sounds Tropicana, "Hippy Skippy Moon Strut" by Moon People, and "Mi Negra Va Gozar" by Paul Ortiz.

An excellent album by one of the greatest Brazilian funk bands ever – a wonderful blend of funk, jazz, and soul – and a set that rivals any of the best work coming from the US at the time! These guys are right on the money right from the start – moving through sharp changes with effortless ease, yet never in a way that's too slick or commercial – kind of like that perfect balance that Kool & The Gang hit for just a few records in the mid 70s – but with more of a Brazilian feel overall. Jazzy licks abound – and the keyboards, guitar, and horns are just great – but the set's also got some more regional percussion, too – which really rounds out the record wonderfully. The grooves all have a really universal appeal – essential for any fan of funky sounds – and titles include "Mr Funky Samba", "Junia", "Casa Forte", "Na Baixa Do Sapateiro", "Lelbon Via Vaz Lobo", "Baia", "Maria Fumaca", and "Metalurgia".

A recent tribute to Albert Ayler – but one that's performed by some of his immediate musical heirs of the 70s! The performance picks up nicely where Ayler left off – and although some of the tunes are famous Ayler numbers, the overall style is almost a loft jazz extrapolation of Albert's ideals – deconstructing them a bit from their original intensity, and allowing new avenues of sound to open up in the process! Tracks are quite long, and build with a beautifully organic sensibility – and Campbell's great work on trumpet is mixed with McPhee's tenor and pocket trumpet – in a group that also features William Parker on bass and Warren Smith on drums and percussion. Titles include "Prophet John", "Universal Indians", "Music Is The Healing Force Of The Universe", "Muntu", "Obama Victory Shoutout", and "Truth Is Marching In". CD

A wonderful gem from Evelyn Champagne King – her third effort with the great producer T Life, who always helped bring out the most soulful elements in King's music! Life's got a way of grooving, but never going for modes that are too easily commercial – still lots of disco and club in the mix, but with more than enough space for Evelyn to really stretch out and be her own woman on the vocals, too! This mix comes out especially well on some of the more midtempo groovers – which have this flourish and polish that's really wonderful – way beyond some of the cliches of King's contemporaries, and with a personal quality that really comes through right away. Some of these cuts include "Your Kind Of Loving" and "Call On Me" – both real standouts on the record – and other numbers include "Let's Get Funky Tonight", "I Need Your Love", "Universal Girl", "Bedroom Eyes", and "Just A Little Bit Of Love".

The first-ever album from Kleeer – and a set that's already got them head and shoulders above most of their contemporaries! The set's got just a bit of the keyboards that would later really define the Kleeer sound – and has some surprising disco elements, too – used by the quartet as a way to step away from the overblown mainstream of the time, into a groove that's leaner and cleaner for the next generation! The great Woody Cunningham is at the lead of the group – singing, drumming, arranging, and writing a good portion of the work – and the group members have already had plenty of experience as The Jam Band, Pipeline, and Universal Robot Band – years of background practice that's really helped them forge some very strong grooves. And while the title may reference the danceability of the times, there's also some nice deeper elements going on too – on titles that include "I Love To Dance", "To Groove You", "Kleeer Sailin", "Amour", "It's Magic", "Keep Your Body Workin", and "Tonight's The Night".

Kullhammar's always been one of our favorite contemporary players – one of the few true living giants on the tenor sax, in fact – and recent years have only seen him get better and better as a player – matching his already-wonderful sense of tone and technique with this new depth of feeling that gives his music an even more universal, more classic quality that we never would have expected at the start. This album could easily rival, if not topple, the best in the American scene today – and if the world were a better place, this would be the record that would put Jonas at the forefront of global jazz – and not serve as the possible swan song intended by the title. The group's a genius outfit, too – with Torbjorn Gulz on piano, Torbjorn Zetterberg on bass, and Jonas Holgersson on drums – working in magical harmony with Jonas on titles that include "Helenas Song", "So Far", "Ballad For Laila", "One For The Bartender", and "Dyningar".

New New World GenerationNew World Generation ... CD
Now Again, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD .... Out Of Stock
Genius work from a little-known group – but a great one too! New World Generation were an early 80s combo from the Boston scene – but they've got a groove that's very much in keeping with some of the most righteous funk acts of the late 70s – particularly those that brought a nice degree of spiritualism to their music, like James Mason or RAMP! This sweet little set carries some great echoes of that generation – a warmer, jazzier style that most other early 80s soul music you'd hear from elsewhere – and a richly-conceived vision that has New World Generation sounding way different than your usual funk, club, or boogie act of the time. Plus, the package is really fleshed out with additional sounds from related groups Universal Rhythms and Orision – tracks that, like the New World Generation numbers, weren't really issued at the time – but which represent a very hip side to underground soul in the US – one that's often eclipsed by bigger acts going for easy chart fame. Now Again have really outdone themselves with the package – bringing together rare tracks from almost-gone tape sources, and putting together a set of notes that really helps illuminate this amazing batch of music! Titles include "Sunshine", "Curious Soul", "Dreamland", "One Of A Kind", "I'm Feelin' Fine", "Mystical Planet", "New World Generation", "Worry", "Free Your Mind", "How Do You Feel", "Listen From Your Soul", "Loving You", and "Someday The World Will Be As One".

New Snarky Puppy & Bukuru CelestinAmkeni ... CD
Ropeadope, 2012. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A really cool shift for the Snarky Puppy sound – one that has the group's great live instrumentation serving as the backdrop for Burundi singer Bukuru Celestin! The set's based around lyrics penned by Celestin, but inflected with the warm jazzy style of Snarky Puppy – a live groove that brings a really organic feel to the music, and which helps create this universal soulful appeal – even if you can't understand the language of the lyrics. There's a joyous quality to the music that really comes through, especially on some of the tracks when Bukuru is joined by a chorus – and titles include "Shima", "Ntumbero", "Muzogezahe", "Amkeni", and "Ndagunkunda".

New Tommy Stewart & OthersTommy Stewart's Disco Love Affair ... CD
Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s. Used .... Out Of Stock
Amazing rare grooves from Tommy Stewart – the Atlanta studio wizard who cut some of the hippest club tracks in the south at the end of the 70s! This package digs way deeper than even Tommy's classic self-titled album – to feature some obscure and unreleased material that show the tremendous power of Stewart in the studio – the kind of energy that made him a one man powerhouse to rival some of the bigger teams turning out grooves at the major labels! As with his classics, all the tunes here have a great funky feel – not really disco, but more upbeat funk, turned towards the dancefloor – served up with lots of sharp edges on the rhythms that keep things mighty nice – and which avoid any too-familiar cliches of the time. In a way, Stewart's groove is a bit like the grittier club from P&P up north – as you'll hear on this set that features the cuts "Night Flight", "Beyond Love", "Hot Box", and "Everything's Made For Love" by Stewart – plus great collaborations with vocalist Stevo on "Pay The Price", "Universal Love", "Party Night", "Starry Eyes", "Livin For The City", "Jammin", and "Messing UP A Good Thing". Also features two Al Kent remixes, too! CD

New VariousJazz Club – Henry Mancini Songbook ... CD
Verve (Germany), 1960s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A mighty tribute to one of the greatest soundtrack composers of the 50s and 60s – served up in a host of jazz and vocal gems from the equally mighty Universal catalog! Most of the numbers here are from the 60s, and showcase Mancini at his jazziest – the period from Peter Gunn onward, when it seemed like every tune Hank touched turned to gold – and became a great jumping-off point for expression in a wide variety of musical styles. The 18 track package features some gems we've never seen reissued before, plus more familiar tunes that sound even better in this ultra-hip setting – and together, the tracks are a tremendous testament to the genius of Mancini at a time when he was working at his fullest potential. Titles include "Sally's Tomato" by Cal Tjader, "Wait Until Dark" by Walter Wanderley & Margie Dotson, "Peter Gunn" by Art Healie & The Electric Saxophone, "Days Of Wine & Roses" by Dizzy Gillespie, "A Shot In The Dark" by Shirley Scott, "Nothing To Lose" by Claudine Longet, "Moon River" by Billy Eckstine, "Shadows Of Paris" by Elsie Bianchi, "Baby Elephant Walk" by Bert Kaempfert, "Experiment In Terror" by Kai Winding, "Charade" by Johnny Hartman, "Slow Hot Wind" by Sarah Vaughan, "Bird Brain" by Quincy Jones, and "Two For The Road" by Gunter Kallmann Choir.

Jazzclub (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Psychedelic Jazz galore – a wonderful look at the hip blend of funky grooves and tripped-out production that emerged at the end of the 60s! The sounds here are every bit as amazing now as they were a few decades back – a genre-busting blend of electric instrumentation, chunky rhythms, and weird techniques – all mixing up elements from soul, funk, rock, Latin, and other sources into a really unique sort of groove! The work here is both from the US and overseas – pulled from Universal-owned labels like MPS, Chess, and Philips – and the package does a great job of mixing key examples of the genre with some other under-reissued gems. 16 tracks in all – including "The Squire" by Mike Nock, "The Fuzz" by Roy Ayers, "Burning Spear" by Jimmy Smith, "Summertime" by Gabor Szabo, "Zoom" by Volker Kriegel, "Uwiii" by Wolfgang Dauner, "The Moving Finger" by Dorothy Ashby, "Big Family" by Free Orbit, "Love Me" by Johnny Teupen, "Ganges Delta" by Okko, "Misty Purple" by Kuhn Brothers & The Mad Rockers, "Guru-Vin" by Don Sebesky, and "Season Of The Witch" by Julie Driscoll & Brian Auger.

New Yuzo Hayashi & Salon 68Memory Of Monica Vitti ... CD
April/Beatball (Korea), 2005. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A groovy groovy little set that's as sexy as the Monica Vitti it remembers! The album was recorded recently, but has a fab 60s sound comprised of electric harpsichord, organ, scatting vocals, and a breezy, bossa-styled groove – all done without any kitsch or fakery, and coming across with a real love of the older sources that clearly inspire the record. In fact, the quality of instrumentation and recording are so strong that you'll hardly believe these guys are a newer act – and we mean that really strongly, as we have a pretty low tolerance for fake retro work! All titles are in Japanese, but the album's got a universal appeal for any fan of 60s soundtrack work from France, Italy, or Brazil! CD

New TornaadoInstrumentaaltsukkel Regatt (10 inch pressing) ... LP
Frotee (Estonia), 1979. New Copy (reissue).... Out Of Stock
Really wonderful grooves from late 70s Estonia – music with a surprising origin, but a clubby quality that's definitely got universal appeal! The group here were supposedly formed to cash in on the Estonian hosting of the sailing sessions for the 1980 Moscow Olympics, and penned these tunes as sailing-themed numbers – yet the overall approach is more instrumental funk than anything else, and hardly the kind of music that evokes images of the sea and surf! Instrumentation features two guitars in the lead, over tight basslines and drums – often dipping, turning, and curving nicely around each other – with a quality that's almost like some of the punkier funk that was soon to appear in the downtown scene in New York. Tracks include "Star", "Soling", "Tornaado", "Jahiklass 470", "Lendav Hollandlane", and "Finn". LP, Vinyl record album

Oriki (France), 1970s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Incredible grooves from the Malian scene of the 70s – all long tracks that spin out with amazing rhythms and a great undercurrent of funk! There's a flowing, spun-out quality to most of these numbers – as percussion builds along with guitar and kora, in ways that create a hypnotic, evocative groove that would be great enough on its own – but which is then also topped with some even more beautiful vocals! Despite the difference of language, there's a really universal appeal to these tunes – a border-crossing brilliance that grabs us from the very first note – and which hangs on throughout, in an amazing journey in sound. CD features 8 titles that include "Djiguiya", "Marigoundo", "Ma Awaba", "Wasso", "Nama", "Yobalema", and "Affair Social". CD

New VariousMaster Of The Masterpiece Vol 2 – More of The Best Of Patrick Adams ... CD
P&P, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Few folks might feel confident to lay claim to being the "master of the masterpiece" – but given the mighty talents of Patrick Adams, the title is certainly well put! Adams has a legacy that's mighty wide in soul music – from group recordings of the late 60s, to harmony soul of the early 70s, to seminal funk and club of the latter 70s – some of the best of which is featured in this set! The collection draws on material that Adams recorded for the P&P family of labels during his partnership with Peter Brown in the 70s and early 80s – a critical relationship that had an undeniable impact on the sound of underground club for many years to come, and which is still really just being discovered fully today. This second chapter in the Adams/Masterpiece series follows strongly on the first – and in a way, it's even more essential as it features a few less hits and some more lost treasures – including some numbers that push the groove a bit more than before – both back to older soul styles, and forward to some slightly more electro-influenced sounds. Titles include "Everybody Dance" by Bumblebee Unlimited, "Happy Is The Only Way" and "Rotation" by Sine, "Busy Body" and "Nasty Rock" by The P Crew, "Never" by Center Stage, "Dance & Shake Your Tambourine (original demo)" by Universal Robot Band, "No Deposit No Return" by Debbie Taylor, "Looking For A Brand New Game" by The Eight Minutes, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough (original demo)" by Inner Life, and "I Got A Big Bee (original demo)" by Bumblebee Unlimited.

The sun shines brightly on Mario Biondi – really making this record sparkle with a charm that goes way beyond Mario's previous albums – a quality that's less retro than before, and which shows Biondi as a growing soul star with really universal appeal! There's still some of the old school jazz in the mix that we love from Mario's Schema work – but the album's also got a fuller production style at times, one that really expands the palette of Biondi's colors, and which has him working here with help from key guests who include Omar, Leon Ware, Al Jarreau, Incognito, and Chaka Khan – and even a bit of organ from the James Taylor Quartet! Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick helped co-write a good number of tracks on the set – and titles include "Shine On", "Come To Me", "Woman Woman", "What Have You Done To Me", "Never Stop", "La Voglia La Pazzia L'Idea", "Girl Blue", "Light To The World", and "Catch The Sunrise".

New Masaaki HiraoNippon Rock N Roll – The Birth Of Japanese Rokabirii 1958 to 1960 ... CD
Big Beat (UK), Late 50s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Rare rock from the Japanese scene of the postwar years – but sounds that definitely have a universal appeal overall! Masaaki Hirao is way more than just a novelty remake of American rockers of the time – as he's got a sharp-edged sound that easily rivals the best we had to offer here in the US – the charm of Elvis, the propulsion of Johnny Burnette, and the offbeat appeal of Buddy Holly! Yet the sounds here are often quite their own thing, too – especially on the Japanese language numbers which make up most of the set, and which have Masaaki stepping away from straight American cover versions, and really doing some great things on his own. The guitar lines are especially great – recorded with brilliant twang and echo that really matches the power of the vocals – and the set features some mighty nice live tracks that are even more biting than the studio material! 23 cuts in all – including "Hoshi Wa Nandemo Shitteiru", "Isuki No Komoriuta Rock", "Yuuyake Koyake", "Ooh My Soul", "Jenny Jenny", "I Love You", "Shiranu Furi", "Miyo Chan", and "One Way Ticket".
