Badder Than Evil/Barbara Mason/New BirthGordon's War ... LP
Buddah, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A brilliant funky soundtrack – with great work from a number of different artists! The Buddah soul stable came out in full force for this soundtrack, including Harvy Fuqua, The New Birth, Barbara Mason, and Horace Ott – as well as the little known group Badder Than Evil! They play on the great instrumental track "Hot Wheels", which is the chase theme in the film, and a great sample track! Also includes "Super Shine #9", sung by Sister Goose & the Ducklings, which is a very groovy, goofy, soulful number – plus the tracks "Child Of Tomorrow", "Harlem Dreams", "Child Of Tomorrow", and "Come On & Dream Some Paradise".

New FunkadelicElectric Spanking Of War Babies ... LP
Warner, 1980. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
A surprisingly wonderful record! Back in the day, we remember that we didn't like these later P-Funk albums because they weren't as druggy, trippy, or guitar heavy as the early stuff. Now, though, they sound pretty darn sweet to our ears – especially this one, which has lots of cool pre-electro grooves with sweet keyboards, vocoder vocals, and spacey basslines that blow out in deep rich waves of funky soul. The whole thing's an amazing evolution of the George Clinton groove – and titles include "Electric Spanking Of War Babies", "Funk Gets Stronger", "Shockwaves", "Icka-prick", "Brettino's Bounce", and "She Loves You". Nice Pedro Bell cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Billy PaulWar Of The Gods (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $14.99
A stone treasure from one of the greatest soul singers of the 70s – and a set you'll regularly find in the coolest of record collections from back in the day! Billy Paul was always one of the hippest talents on Philly International – mixing together soul and jazz influences with a deeper sense of spirituality, and long experience as a sophisticated vocalist. This album's one of his most sublime efforts – kind of a quasi-spiritual record with a similar high-concept approach to some of Marvin Gaye's work from the same time – really righteous, in ways that the Philly label didn't always hit – and which really goes past even most of Billy's already hip previous efforts. Gamble and Huff produced and wrote most of the record – including the two long tracks that make up side one, "I See The Light" and "War Of The Gods", the latter of which starts out slow and moody, then breaks out into a club groove. Other titles include the more standard soul tune "The Whole Town's Talking", plus "Thanks For Saving My Life" and "Peace Holy Peace". CD features bonus tracks – "War Of The Gods (part 1)", "The Whole Town's Talking (single)", and "I Was Married (single)". CD

Caterina ValenteWake Up & Shake Up/Ich War So Gern Bei Dir ... CD
Vocalion (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $16.99
Two different albums from Caterina Valente – recorded in two different languages! Wake Up & Shake Up has Valente singing in English – something she didn't always do on record, but which comes off very well here – partly because the instrumentation is by Fats Sadi & The Belgians! Fats' combo sounds mighty nice – and a lot more trippy than you'd expect – partly because Caterina also sings with The Valente Singers, who add chorus modes to some tunes, but in a way that's a great mix of creepy and sunny! The overall approach is somewhere between MPS easy listening and the Mike Sammes Singers at their best – both high recommendations from us – and titles include versions of Roy Budd's "Sun On My Face", Jorge Ben's "Ching Ching Ching Ching", Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now", Joao Bosco's "Bala Com Bala", and Airto's "Misturada". Ich War So Gern Bei Dir is sung in German – with a set of mostly original tunes from producers Heinz Geitz and Kurt Feltz, who set Caterina Valent up in these sunny, bouncy 70s modes that fit with the best side of the Economic Miracle easy scene of the time! The style situates Valente nicely back in her home turf – and titles include "Oho Aha", "Du Bist Musik", "Wir Kamen In Die Strasse", "Es Gibt Noch Marchen", and "Fiesta Cubana". CD

New WarWorld Is A Ghetto ... LP
United Artists, 1972. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A monster from start to finish – not only the greatest album from War, but maybe one of the greatest mainstream funk albums of all time! The set's got a really unique groove – one that so many others tried to copy, but which was forged here first – in a wicked LA blend of Chicano funk, heavy organ lines, and soulful singing that sews the whole thing together perfectly. Just about every cut is upbeat and funky – rolling along at that low-rider pace that was War's lasting contribution to funk music – and the album features the huge hits "World Is A Ghetto" and "Cisco Kid", two of the brightest spots on radio funk from the 70s – plus classics like "Four Cornered Room", "City Country City", "Where Was You At", and "Beetles In The Bog".

War/Curtis Mayfield/Kool & The GangFirst Annual Benefit Concert For The Congressional Black Caucus ... CD
Chess (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
A killer moment in 70s soul – but kind of a lost gem, too – given that the album was issued by Chess Records, but features a number of big names who mostly recorded for other companies! The live performance was recorded at the first annual benefit for the Black Congressional Caucus – and the tunes have the right sort of righteous energy to match the important political event – really special performances that include a searing 9 minute version of "Wild & Peaceful" by Kool & The Gang, super-heavy versions of "Give Me Your Love" by Curtis Mayfield and the Mayfield-penned "On & On" by Gladys Knight & The Pips. War follows up with a smoking Hammond-heavy take on "Gypsy Man" – and even Jimmy Witherspoon sounds pretty darn great on a take of his classic "Goin Down Slow". CD

Motown, 2008. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Badu is back with some of the deepest, funkiest and best music of her career – a mindblowing treatise for a New Amerykah – and what we'll consider an instant classic whether the world at large catches on or not! Erykah steps up this time with a set that balances the wilder impulses of her criminally underappreciated Worldwide Underground and more of a hip hop based, righteously grooving style – but still bursts with a freshness that's unrivaled to say the least. From free spirited soul, to sparse hip hop funk this record is both blunt and beautiful – with a slow-building emotional resonance that'll reach the most jaded souls. Modern soul music of the first order that gives us goosebumps from the first spin to the last beat! The album kicks off with Erykah riffing on and remixing Ramp's "American Promise" as an intro – and it just gets deeper from there. Producers/collaborators include Madlib, Sa-Ra, Karriem Riggins, James Poyser and ?uestlove. Amazing!!! Titles include "The Healer", "Me", "My People", "Soldier", "The Cell", "Twinkle", "Master Teacher", "The Hump" and "Telephone". The 9th Wonder produced single "Honey" is an unlisted bonus track.

New Henry ManciniWhat Did You Do In The War Daddy? ... LP

Kind of nutty stuff from this weird Blake Edwards film that starred James Coburn and Dick Shawn. The material's not a jazz-based as some of Mancini's other scores, but it does have a delightfully nutty sound that's in keeping with the kind of mad 60s film it was written for. The postwar memory of the film situates it in Italy, so a fair number of the melodies have slight Italian overtones – including "Sicily Forever", "Gina", "Wine and Women", and "Festa!".

New Edwin StarrWar & Peace ... CD
Gordy (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A real breakout album for Edwin Starr – and the kind of full-on set that really helped give his music a bold new focus! Starr had already scored nicely on some playful tracks from the Motor City scene of the late 60s – but here, he emerges as a singer with a lot more depth than before – not only on the righteous tunes, like the classic title track – but also on some of the warmer ones too, which showcase a new adult style of singing we might not have expected a few years before! Unlike other Motown efforts of this level, there doesn't seem to be any core arranger and producer – which means that Edwin himself did an even greater job of pulling the whole thing together – a great run of tracks that includes the classic "War (What Is It Good For)", a killer version of "California Soul", one of the best Motown-penned tracks from the time – and the tracks "Time", "I Just Wanted To Cry", "All Around The World", "At Last I Found A Love", "I Can't Replace My Old Love", and "She Should Have Been Home".

RCA, 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
Well, it's all pretty much over by now – and this album's kind of a pale imitation of War's earlier excellent sound. All the right elements are there, but the overall sound is pretty lackluster – more of a tourist version of east LA that you'd hear on an episode of Quincy or Hunter, especially when the group adds in a bit of an 80s "street" sound. Just about the only good thing is Lee Oskar's harmonica, which sneaks in and out nicely on the best tracks, adding in some mellower colors that sound ok enough. Titles include "You Got The Power", "The Jungle", "Just Because", and "Cinco De Mayo". LP, Vinyl record album

PTSD has a fairly loose dystopian sci fi theme/story that's a sometimes metaphorical, some times explicitly laid out struggle for truth and honestly in crooked music business and difficult world in general – like the best kinda/sorta concept albums, the story doesn't get overbearing at any point, and Pharaohe's pen remains as sharp as ever, and his flow as excellent as ever. This one doesn't have the manic, bugged out energy of Internal Affairs, but that's not a knock – we take the more measured, smartly paced approach as a sign of maturity, and an eagarness to avoid repeating himself. Good stuff! Includes "The Recollection Facility", "Losing My Mind", "Heroin Addict", "Damage", "Bad MF", "Rapid Eye Movement" with Black Thought, "Broken Again", "Post Traumatic Stress Disorder", "DREAM" with Talib Kwelie, "Scream", "Eht Dn Arg Noisulli" with Stepkids and more.

Sweet modern soul with a sound that would get picked up on years later by the LA G-Funk scene. The album's produced by War's Far Out production team – and it's got a smooth sound that's mixed with moogy keyboards and compressed instrumentation on the best cuts. Some tracks are a bit too funky, but the mellow ones are very tasty. Includes the excellent track "Summer Love", plus "Cream City", "Magic Night", "Lonely Princess", and "Jungle Desire".

Count Basie with Lester YoungLester Leaps In ... CD
Epic (Japan), Late 30s/1955. New Copy ... $13.99
A beautiful mid 50s issue of some of the classic material that Lester Young recorded with Count Basie during the late 30s – all nicely packaged with a great cover, and annotated in a way that offers a lot more information than the original release of the material on 78rpm discs! These are the records that made Lester a giant – and for good reason, as the Basie setting seems to propel Young's horn with even more force than it might have on its own – allowing a great setting for the fresh voice that would go onto transform generations of tenor players to come! The set features 12 tracks in all – and titles include "Moten Swing", "Taxi War Dance", "Dickie's Dream", "Jump For Me", "Song Of The Islands", and "Lester Leaps In". CD

Tim BuckleyGoodbye & Hello ... LP
Elektra, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $23.99
Easily one of our favorite albums by Tim Buckley – and a record that really opens up with some key jazzy touches! Buckley's still got his roots in folk here, and his vocals are yet to hit the extremes of Starsailor or Lorca – but there's also a new sense of inflection to the way he puts over the lyrics, shaded in by use of vibes, kalimba, harmonium, and harpsichord – the latter two of which are played on the session by Don Randi! Tracks are relatively short, but high in concept – and include the protest song "No Man Can Find The War", plus "Hallucinations", "Phantasmagoria In Two", "Carnival Song", "Pleasant Street", "Morning Glory", and "Goodbye & Hello".

Jimmy CastorIt's Just Begun/Phase Two ... CD
RCA/Robinsongs (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
A pair of classics from the Jimmy Castor Bunch – back to back on a single CD! It's Just Begun is wickedly fuzzy funk! Jimmy Castor recorded in a lot of different styles during the 70s – but the one he used on this album is still his best! The record's a non-stop guitar-heavy batch of classic funk tracks – and it features the storming break track "It's Just Begun", the funky goofy "Troglodyte", and plenty other nice moments like "Bad", "LTD", "I Promise To Remember", and "Psychee". Fuzzy guitar meets heavy drums meets some of the most insane lyrics ever on a mainstream funk album! One of our most requested records – and for good reason! Phase Two is probably Jimmy's second best album of the 70s – one with many of the same elements as his legendary It's Just Begun record! The band is grooving hard – with plenty of heavy conga, fuzzed out guitar, and trippy grooves that serve as a perfect foil for Jimmy's super-dope sense of humor. The record features a remake of Jimmy's earlier "Hey Leroy", still done with a Latiny groove, but also with many elements of "It's Just Begun" thrown into the funky mix. The album also features Jimmy's guitar-heavy "Tribute To Jim [Hendrix]", and "Luther The Anthropoid", which was a follow-up to "Troglodyte", with similar stoner caveman lyrics! Another tasty cut is "Party Life", a 7 minute Latin funk number with a very War-like groove! CD

East Of UndergroundHell Below (East Of Underground/Soap/Black Seeds/Sound Trek) (3CD set) ... CD
US Army/Now Again, 1971/1972. New Copy 3CD ... $18.99 24.98
Proof that the US Army had plenty going on during the 70s – as you'll hear from this killer set of military-produced grooves from East Of Underground! The set goes way past the previous East Of Underground reissue – to feature work by the groups Soap, Black Seeds, and Sound Trek – all wrapped up in a beautiful package that's as visually pleasing as the music is funky! The cuts here were all recorded by US Army servicemen during the height of the Vietnam war – as Army-issued albums designed to encourage recruitment (as if a few funky grooves could help offset the bad press the war was getting on TV!) But despite that odd origin, the music here is all pretty great – mostly covers of familiar tunes from the time, but recorded with a nicely gritty quality that's mighty nice – and which makes the overall feel of the records like digging into some lost small studio tapes – ala Numero! Now Again have done a great job of putting together the whole package, too – contributing a wealth of notes and photos, and really digging deep into the scene in which these unique records were created. Not only that, but the packaging also replicates the style of the original odd releases too! The set features a CD each of music by East Of Underground and Soap – plus another CD that brings together an unusual double LP by the groups Black Seeds and Sound Trek. Titles include "I Just Want To Celebrate", "Kool & The Gang", "Walking In The Rain", "Backstabbers", "I Love Everything About You", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Go Outside In The Rain", "Black Magic Woman", "Hell Below", "Higher", "Popcorn/Santana", "Walk On By", "Java Girl", and "Get Together".

Now Again, 1971. New Copy 2 CDs Gatefold ... $12.99 19.98
A pair of great albums – brought together in one super-heavy package! First up is the legendary East Of Underground record – an uber-obscure LP recorded in 1971 by a group of US Army servicemen at the Armed Forces Network studios in Frankfurt, Germany – originally used as a recruiting tool during the Vietnam war! Given the strength of the set, we wouldn't be surprised if plenty of folks signed up for a tour of duty after hearing it – as the set cooks like some of the best American funk from the indie 45 world at the time. The production is nice and dark – with an echoey quality that makes us guess the album was a live recording – done by American servicemen with the feel of some backroom funk show from the Indy or Ohio scene of the 70s. Some of the tracks are familiar numbers from American hits – but redone here with a nicely gritty feel – and titles include the awesome medley "Bet'Ya Never Lose My Love California Dreamer" – plus "Higher", "Smiling Faces", "Hell Below", "Getting Over", "Popcorn/Santana", "I Love You", "Java Girl", and "Walk On By". The set also includes the Soap album – a very similar record with a mix of rock and soul, done with the same sort of US Army-endorsed approach – and some great raw production that really makes the album sparkle! Many tunes are covers, but they're played here with a gritty live energy – so that even the rock tunes feel a bit funky at times – given a really odd edge. Titles include weird versions of "Uncle Albert", "Ticket To Ride", "Southern Man", "I Just Want To Celebrate", "Get Together", and "Walk Away". CD

New Douglas EwartSongs Of Sunlife – Inside The Didjeridu ... CD
Innova, 2003. New Copy ... $13.99
Wonderful explorations of the sound of the didjeridu – done at a level that's quite different than any other use of the instrument we've ever heard – no surprise, given that the music here is all created by AACM legend Douglas Ewart! The performances bridge Ewart's two worlds of organic improvisation and more serious tonal composition – both of which prove to be perfect settings for the instrument – which is used here at a level that's completely respectful, and without any sense of gimmick at all. Different variations on the didjeridu are used on different tracks – mostly solo in the lead, but with occasional accompaniment on string bass, bells, and electronics. Titles include "Walk & Drop", "Ginep", "Seeds Of War", "Mud Bath III", and "Dancing Inside Of Soul". CD

Great early work from Jose Feliciano – and definitely the "bag full of soul" promised in the title, as the album's got a wonderfully heartfelt feel all the way through! Jose's voice is warm and beautifully melodic, and the arrangements are a bit more straight ahead than on later releases – with occasional folksy touches that highlight Jose's acoustic guitar playing, but still let his beautifully sweet vocals come through wonderfully. The sound is sometimes spare, sometimes upbeat and rollicking – and tracks include "If I Really Bug You", "Help", "A Woman A Lover A Friend", "Masters Of War", "Where I'm Going", and "Go On Your Way".

Frankie Goes To HollywoodWelcome To the Pleasuredome ... LP
ZTT/Island, 1984. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $2.99
Arguably one of the greatest concept albums of the 80s – and the only really strong full length album cut by Frankie Goes To Hollywood! At the time of the set, the group was riding high on the success and controversy of their singles "Relax" and "Two Tribes" – but in the ambitious ZTT mode, sought to expand their sound way past familiar hits, and into a realm of sonic exploration that rivaled that of labelmates Art Of Noise. Don't get us wrong, because the Frankie of this album is still very much in groove-oriented territory – but they also let Horn take over with some more striking tunes that are both longer and shorter than the usual pop track – offsetting the vocal numbers on the record with a rich tapestry of musical backdrops that also more firmly forward the group's social and sexual leanings. The album features surprising covers of "War", "Do You Know The Way To San Jose", and "Born To Run" – plus the hits "Relax" and "Two Tribes", and the original numbers "Welcome To the Pleasure Dome", "Krisco Kisses", "The Ballad Of 32", "Wish The Lads Were Here", "Black Night White Light", "The Only Star In Heaven", "The Power Of Love", and "Bang".

Funky organ, hard tenor sax, and plenty of choppy guitar make this another jazz funk gem in the crown of the legendary Funk Inc! The group are still totally at the top of their game here – stepping out with a deep, soulful Indy-bred blend of jazz and funk – a groove that was easily one of the hippest going in the early 70s Prestige Records scene – and that's saying a lot, given the company the label was keeping at the time! The record's got one track that features some nice soulful vocals – the political cut "Let's Make Peace & Stop The War" – but the best cuts are the instrumentals, grooving along hard in the band's best modal funky tradition! Titles include "The Better Half", "Jung Bungo", and "Running Away". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

Killer funky reissue of this rare soundtrack by Don Julian & The Larks! You probably already know Don Julian's funky work from the Savage soundtrack, and this one's just as good – with even more cuts than the original, including a lot of tasty soul cuts and covers with a deep soulful sound. The plot of the film has Don and The Larks playing a cool little lounge funk band, caught up in sort of a mini gang war between 2 thugs who want to manage them. One of the thug's named "Shorty The Pimp", and his name provides Don with the funky title to the great theme of the film, which is a very tasty groover. Other tracks have the band covering other current soul hits, and playing some extra-dope instrumentals with a nice hard sound. Titles include "Schoolin & Foolin", "Vato's Brew", "Brother What It Is", "Super Slick", "Inner City Blues", "If There's A Hell Below", and "Message From A Black Man". On CD only! CD

Transition is right – as the cover has Barbara floating above a Curtis Mayfield-ish scene of drugs, war, gambling, and Satan – a really righteous image that beautifully sums up the vibe of the record! The set was recorded at Sigma Sound in Philly – with excellent arrangements from Norman Harris, Richard Rome, and Bobby Eli – who all bring in a slight blacksploitation vibe to match the image on the cover – easily the funkiest setting that Barbara Mason ever had! But the real star here is the lady herself – who's pushed herself beyond the little girl soul themes of a few years before, to take on a host of societal issues with a surprisingly righteous vibe – mostly on tracks she penned herself. The song titles sum up lots of the energy of the record – and include "World in a Crisis", "Trigger Happy People", "The Devil is Busy", "Sunday Saint (Weekday Sinner)", "Half Sister Half Brother", and "Time Is Running Out". A real surprise from Barbara Mason – and a great one too! CD

Reggae In Jazz does indeed have some jazz-steeped solos augmenting the vibe quite nicely, but it's perhaps not the full on reggae/jazz hybrid the title suggests – which is a good thing, actually! The rhythms are strongly rooted in classic Dynamic and Channel One reggae instro territory, but the vibe is enhanced a bit by soul jazzy organ, guitar and more on the solo tip – and a bit of funk, too! Produced by Buster Riley, with Sly Dunbar, Santa Davos. Robbie Shakespeare, Chinna Smith, Ansel Collins, Jackie Mitoo and other legends on the session. Titles include "Grass Root", "Caution", "Sin", "Wild Bunch", "Bam-Bam", "Collin '1'", "Collin '2'", "Bad Man", "Good Bye". "Black-Out", "Rock Away" and "War".

Those are all fine, but the really wonderful track on the record is "Blood" by David Lucas – a very trippy instrumental that begins tight and funky, with lots of bass/drum/guitar grooving, plus nice use of vibes, and which then goes really over the top near the end and gets way fuzzed out and messed up!

OdettaOdetta Sings Dylan ... LP
RCA, 1965. Very Good ... $7.99
A stripped down, bluesy folk soul set of Dylan tunes by Odetta – returning some kudos to a kid who was hugely inspired by her earlier material in the late 50s – a really beautiful record and possibly one of the best ever Dylan covers albums! Odetta Sings Dylan is actually one of the earliest full LPs of Dylan covers – pretty soon everyone and their brother would be covering him, very few as naturalistic and wonderfully as Odetta! Odetta's perfect vocals and guitar are accompanied by guitarist Peter Childs and bassist Les Grinage, and the titles include "Baby, I'm In The Mood For You", "Long Ago, Far Away", "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright", "Tomorrow Is A Long Time", "Walkin' Down The Line", "Masters Of War", "Long Time Gone" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

New OmarMan ... LP
Freestyle (UK), 2013. New Copy ... $19.99
A killer set from Omar – an artist we've loved right from the start, and someone who's never ever let us down! The record's got a great lean feel – almost a return to the modes that Omar first released on his classic material for Talking Loud – that tight, no-nonsense approach to soul that really blows away most of the competition by showing that a heck of a lot can be done with just a little! Omar's vocals are very firmly in the lead – serving up positive, thoughtful lyrics that show why his work has always gone far beyond any mainstream cliches in R&B – and which continue to mark the man as one of the most powerful forces in the underground. The set's got guest work from Scratch Professor, Caron Wheeler, and a few others – but honestly, Omar's the Man who's really got us paying attention all the way through! Titles include "I Can Listen", "The Man", "Simplify", "I Love Being With You", "When You Touch We Touch", and "F*ck War Make Love". LP, Vinyl record album

William OnyeaborWho Is William Onyeabor – World Psychedelic Classics 5 ... CD
Luaka Bop, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Grooves unlike anything else you've ever heard before – the rightly legendary musical legacy of William Onyeabor, one of the most enigmatic talents to come from the African scene of the 70s! The work here is all plenty darn funky, but it's also very different from familiar Afro Funk too – as the instrumentation is heavy on keyboards, handled by William with incredible dexterity – and spun out in these soaring lines that bristle with righteous touches that really support the message of his tunes! The vibe mixes in some electro elements with long-drawn rhythms – and the vocals often step aside for lots of keyboard and rhythm interplay, then come in to send things home at just the right moment. Onyeabor's been a pretty elusive cat over the years, and it's taken Luaka Bop quite some time to put this collection together – amazing work that may well make the album one of the most important to ever come from the label – and the first introduction to the non-African world of Onyeabor's incredible sounds. Titles include "Body & Soul", "Atomic Bomb", "Something You'll Never Forget", "Why Go To War", "Love Is Blind", "Fantastic Man", and "Let's Fall In Love". CD

OrgoneKillion Floor ... CD
Ubiquity, 2007. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
A monstrous debut from one of the heaviest acts we've heard in years – LA's Orgone, easily one of the most up-and-coming funky combos around! Although Orgone share a bit with some of the leaner deep funk groups who've cropped up in the past decade or so, they've also got a sound that's a bit more advanced overall – sort of that second-generation approach to funk that hit the scene by the mid 70s, as some of the bigger funk acts like Black Heat or War moved out of the indie scene and really started to hit a wider audience! That doesn't mean that Orgone's commercial at all – because they've got a sound that's still as sharp-edged as any smaller group – but with a lineup that's quite large, they're able to encompass a very wide range of soulful styles – gritty 45 riffing, slinky Chicano-styled grooves, Afro Funk, tighter soul tracks, and lots lots more – all carried off with perfection throughout. The album feels like some lost masterpiece on Fantasy, or possibly some overlooked early 70s major label funk set on WEA or United Artists – and titles include "Who Knows Who", "I Get Lifted", "Funky Nassau", "Lone Ranger", "Prism Break", "Crabby Ali", "Duck & Cover", "Dialed Up", "Said & Done", "Hambone", "It's What You Do", "Do Your Thing", and "Sophisticated Honky".

Pearls Before SwineUse Of Ashes ... LP
Reprise, 1970. Very Good ... $14.99
An incredibly beautiful album from Pearls Before Swine – one that uses light orchestrations to create a baroquely folksy sort of feel – easily elevating the album past previous efforts, into classic territory we'd rank with the best from Nick Drake or Leonard Cohen! The whole album's great – with fragile and haunting songs from Tom Rapp, all supported by sparsely arranged instrumentation that includes harpsichord, flute, oboe, cello, and dobro. Genius throughout – and a clear inspiration for music still being made 30 years later – with classic tracks that include "The Jeweler", "Rocket Man", "Song About A Rose", "The Old Man", "When The War Began", and "From The Movie Of The Same Name".

PentwaterPentwater ... LP
Golden Pavilion, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 22.98
A pretty wild record by Pentwater – a Chicago outfit who deliver a mix of spacey, yet accessible proggish rock, ala Hawkwind or King Crimson with a dash Zappa-esque eccentricity, but from there they really blast off into their own unique realm! Feverish vocals, some killer guitars and unpredictable rhythmic changes make it uneasy, but compelling listening all the way – with some unique instrumental elements that include oboe, flute and extra percussion. Includes "Frustaration Mass", "Living Room Displays", "Memo", "Orphan Girl", "AM", "Palendrome", "War" and "Gwen's Madrigal". LP, Vinyl record album

Jim PepperPepper's Pow Wow ... LP
Embryo, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
A strangely beautiful little record – the standout career effort from tenorist Jim Pepper – a Native American player who draws heavily here on his heritage! Although Pepper plays sax on most numbers, he also sings a fair bit too – in kind of a raspy style that alternates from slightly soulful to somewhat chanting – all in a uniquely haunting way that's unlike anything else we can think of! There's a definite jazz core to the record – guitar from Larry Coryell, piano from Tom Grant, and drums from Billy Cobham and Spider Rice – but the sound is often far from standard, given the vocals and Native American influences. Titles include the sublime "Witchitai-To" – Pepper's lasting legacy in music – plus "Newlyweds Song", "Nommie Nommie", "Senecas", "Yon A Ho", "Slow War Dance", and "Drums". LP, Vinyl record album

Pharoahe MonchAgent Orange (single version) (clean, inst, dirty) ... 12-inch
Rawkus, 2003. Near Mint- ... $1.99
The Pharoahe returns with "Agent Orange", his weapon in the war against wack hip hop, and a verbal brick tossed at the window of the Oval Office. The politics don't get in the way of the beat, though – the SA-RA production falls just over the gritty-right of HOT – with a deep electro pulsing squeel building up to the chorus. The world of hip hop needs the manic, freaked-out likes of Pharoahe Monch right now, and it's great to have him back on the radar! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Greensleeves (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $10.99 11.98
This is sort of a Prince Jammy riff on the format of the popular Junjo Lawes-produced Scientist dub series. Nonetheless, he steps up to bat, and indeed defeats the evil planet munchers, with the able help of the Roots Radics rhytnm section. Recorded at Channel One and mixed at Tubby's – and how can you argue with that!? Fat, heavy rhythms dubbed into deep, deep outer space by the heir to the throne! 8 tracks in all, including "Conspiracy On Neptune", "Saturn Bombardment", "Attack on Ganymede", "Martian Encounter", "The Great Red Spot", "Life On Uranus", "Final Destruction" and "War In The Asteroid Belt".

Excellent work from Richard Pryor's early years – a record done in the usual "party" style of the Laff label, but with a freewheeling and hip approach to the material that finds its humor in far more than just blue topics and sexual double-entendres! Pryor is frenetic and energetic throughout, running through topics that include "Passin Gas", "Colored Folks", "War", "Army", "Git A Little", "Birth Control Pill", "Negro Judge", and "Slippin In Poo Poo" – all before a live audience.

New Rare EarthEcology ... LP
Rare Earth/Motown, 1970. Very Good ... $2.99
A stone smoker from Rare Earth one of those really early gems by the group – recorded a a time when they were able to easily handle a groove made up of equal parts funk, rock, and soul! The vibe here is almost like War at times – not for the LA touches in the mix, but for the heady and heavy way these guys roll forward – pulling together all the best elements of the underground at the time, and bringing them into their own smoky groove. Instrumentation is wonderful – and some of the cuts have a really great jamming sort of feel – especially the 11 minute reading of "(I Know) I'm Losing You" – originally done by the Temptations, and produced by Norman Whitfield for the album! Other titles include "Long Time Leavin", "Satisfaction Guaranteed", "Nice Place To Visit", "No 1 Man", and a sweet version of "Eleanor Rigby". LP, Vinyl record album

Red RippersOver There. . .And Over Here ... CD
Paradise Of Bachelors, 1983. Used ... $6.99
A cool combat-themed country rock record by The Red Rippers – largely the work of songwriter and Vietnam veteran Lt. Edwin Bankston – and a pretty riveting obscurity from the early 80s private press vaults! The sounds range from breezy, Creedence-styled backdrops and 70s outlaw country inspired grooves, to more of a fuzzed out, slightly harder-edged feel – but it's the lyricism that really pushes Red Rippers into a different realm. It's full of war-wizened songs about forgotten soldiers, bloody jungle battles and other prideful and mournful tales from this veteran's point of view! The difference between the catchy, if quite raw tunefulness and the frank lyricism gives it a really dichotomous, intriguing feel! Includes "I Roll", "Soldier Of Fortune", "Firefight", "Who Remembers", "Vietnam Blues", "The Dark And Bloody Road", "She's Been Down", "Body Bag". CD
