New Lee WileyWest Of The Moon ... LP
RCA, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great set of torchy ballads from Lee Wiley – a singer who virtually helped invent the genre on record with her classic sets for Columbia Records! This album's done a few years after those – and features backings by Ralph Burns, who brings a fair bit more sentimental moments to his work here than you might expect from some of his other more modern outings. The proceedings have a nice touch of jazz – thanks to players who include Urbie Green on trombone, Nick Travis on trumpet, and Moe Wechsler on piano – and although Lee's vocals have a slightly aging quality, that only serves to help the fragile emotions of the best numbers in the set. Titles include "You're A Sweetheart", "This Is New", "Who Can I Turn To Now?", "My Ideal", "Limehouse Blues", "I Left My Sugar Standing In The Rain", and "Keepin' Out Of Mischief Now". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing with deep groove.)

Barbara LeaBarbara Lea ... CD
Prestige (Japan), 1956/1957. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the few 50s albums ever cut from singer Barbara Lea – a great vocalist who seemed to get a bit more of a chance in the studio much later in her life! This session's got a slightly unusual feel – in that it's not really torchy, but also not as outrightly swinging either – and part of that feel might have to do with the backings, which are by 2 different small groups led by trumpeter Johnny Windhurst, who swings things along on the record, but never in a way that's too over the top. Barbara herself has a style that's expressive, but not overly emotive – a bit like Lee Wiley or some of her contemporaries, but slightly "cooler" at points. Titles include "I've Got A Pocket Full Of Dreams", "I Had Myself A True Love", "Baltimore Oriole", "Blue Skies", "My Honey's Loving Arms", and "Nobody Else But Me". CD features 2 bonus tracks! CD

VariousLast Kind Words – 1926 to 1953 ... LP
Mississippi, Late 20s/1930s/1940s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $11.99
Deep, lost, or long-buried blues and gospel records from the old days – creaky 78s that creep deep into the soul – beautiful stuff from Lottie Kimbrough, Robert Petway, the Anglin Brothers and more! Great stuff, from chugging rustic guitar and voice blues, to some very moving pre-R&B gospel vocal gems, impeccable all around! Titles include "Last Kind Words" by Geechie Wiley, "Church Bells" by Kid Prince Moore, "Catfish Blues" by Robert Petway, "Rolling Log" by Lottie Kimbrough, "That's No Way To Get Along" by Robert Wilkins, "Money Cannot Buy Your Soul" by The Anglin Brothers, "Death Is Only A Dream" by Edward Clayborn and more.

VariousWants List 3 – 17 Classic, In-Demand & Soulful Rare Grooves ... CD
Soul Brother (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $11.99
Sublime 70s soul all the way through – a tremendous collection of mellow groovers and midtempo steppers – quite possibly the best volume so far in the Wants List series! The cuts here are all wrapped around a really unified groove – that 70s style that was never too funky, nor too uptempo – just nicely laidback and warm, yet still with a bubbling, gentle sort of rhythm. Production is full on most tracks, but there's always a great edge in the vocals – and although many of the artists here are bigger names, the cuts on the set (as you might guess from the title!) represent some of their more obscure tracks from the decade! Titles include "Lovely Lady" by Vernon Burch, "Trying To Get Next To You" by Arnold Blair, "If I Can't Stop You" by CB Overton, "Is This Really Love" by Charles Drain, "Show Me The Way To Love" by Carl Davis & The Chi-Sound Orchestra, "Midnight Lovers" by Passion, "Smother Me With Your Love" by Betty Wright, "The Rub" by George & Gwen McCrae, "Feed Me your Love" by The Fatback Band, "Harder & Harder" by Archie Bell, "The Man In The Street" by William Bell, "Sweet Music Soft Lights & You" by Ken Williams, "Wondering" by Betty Everett, "Electrified Love" by Ernie Hines, and "Feel Good" by Michelle Wiley.

New VariousBoppin' By The Bayou – 28 Raw Louisiana Rockers ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Rumblin' numbers from late 50s Louisiana – a bit of rockabilly, some that are more rock/less 'billy, still others with the swampier sound you'd expect to be bubbling up outta the bayou! You can feel the influence of 40s New Orleans R&B in the DNA – particularly on the numbers with brass – but there's also some rugged rockers here that would sound right at home in Memphis, or anywhere else – with singles by Tommy Todd, Al Ferrier, Rod Bernard & The Twisters, Arnold Broussard, Jay Chevalier & The Long Shots, Rocket Morgan and others. 28 tracks in all: "Tag Along" by Tommy Todd, "She's Mine" by Johnny Jano, "Linda Gail" by Rode Bernard & The Twisters, "Some Other Time" by Arnold Broussard, "Release Me" by Rocket Morgan, "Boogie Children/Walking With Frankie" by The Playboys, "Rattlesnake" by Wiley Barkdull with Rusty & Doug, "Kansas City" by Warren Storm and more.

New Charles MingusJazz Experiments Of Charlie Mingus (remastered edition) ... LP
Bethlehem, 1954. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A pivotal album in the career of Charles Mingus – one that really has him honing his sound, and reaching for that trademark mix of modernism and raw emotion that set a whole generation on fire! The album's a lot more freewheeling than other Mingus material from the time – although still a bit more compact than the Atlantic or Columbia sides – and the group's staffed with key early interpreters of Charles' vision – including John LaPorta on alto, Teo Macero on tenor and baritone, Thad Jones on trumpet, Clem DeRosa on drums, and Jackson Wiley on cello – an instrument that really helps shade in some of the darker corners of the tunes. Titles include great early originals like "Four Hands", "Minor Intrusion", "Thrice Upon A Theme", and "The Spur Of The Moment" – plus his great take on "Stormy Weather", which is a bit stormier than most! LP, Vinyl record album
(Newly remastered version!)

New VariousChimpin' The Blues – With Jerry Zolten & Robert Crumb ... CD
East River, 1920s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not just another collection of rare material from 78rpm recordings – and instead, a great little set that's definitely got a personality of its own! The package presents rare work from the collections of 78 diggers Jerry Zolten and Robert Crumb – the latter of whom created some great cover art for the compilation as well – and in addition to some very well-recorded material from the original discs, the set also features a few tracks of Crumb and Zolten "chimpin" – some quick patter that serves up specific details on the records, and opinions from both collectors. Titles include "Humming Blues" by Joe Linthcombe, "Rolling Log Blues" by Lottie Kimbrough, "Guenene Tini" by Cheikha Tetma, "Walk Right In" by Cannon's Jug Stompers, "Last Kind Words" by Geeshie Wiley, "Warm Wipe Stomp" by Macon Ed & Tampa Joe, and "Washboard Cut Out" by Bobbie Leecan's Need More Band.

New VariousWants List 2 – Another 18 Soulful Rare Grooves ... CD
Soul Brother (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing collection of funky nuggets – one that's overflowing with hip soul, funk, and break tracks! The set's the second in a series put together by the staff of London's Soul Brother Records – and like the first, it features some of the most sought-after rare grooves and sample tracks from the 70s – a rich array of titles from a variety of different labels, all collected with a keen ear for the older tracks that are still breaking big well into the 21st Century! And since these guys also run a record store themselves, they've gone way past the obvious – and have chosen an all-essential batch of tunes that aren't easily available on the market, including some killer tracks from major labels that we've been waiting years to see reissued. Titles include "Oops Here I Go Again" by Edna Wright, "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little Bit More" by Kellee Patterson, "Sho Nuff" by Sly Slick & Wicked, "All I Want Is You" by Four Flights, "Live For Love" by GC Cameron, "I Feel So At Home Here" by Michelle Wiley, "Shake It Up" by The Vibrations, "My Music" by Samuel Jonathan Johnson, "Heaven" by Ruth Copeland, "It's Got To Be Mellow (1976)" by Leon Mellow, "Making Room For Love" by Alton McClain & Destiny, and "When We're Makin Love" by Denise LaSalle.
