Heavy vinyl new arrivals!


CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Soul Train Is Coming
Rockashacka (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
One of the more obscure sides of work from the legendary Alton Ellis – but one of the best as well! The set features some cuts issued by Alton on his own Ellis label – and many of the numbers here feature the singer acting as a producer too – a surprisingly strong side of his ... LP, Vinyl record album (Reggae)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Atlantic/Expansion (UK), 1984/1985. New Copy
A pair of killers from Kleeer – back to back on a single CD! First up is the classic Intimate Connection – tight 80s soul from Kleeer – one of the group's standout classics, and a set that's produced with kind of a jazzy finish by Deodato, who also plays some nice keyboards on ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2015. New Copy
The music of Janelle Monae gets some really wonderful treatment here – served up in an instrumental mode by trumpeter Jason Palmer – with a similar spirit to his previous project based around the music of Minnie Riperton! The approach is definitely jazz, but it's wonderful to hear ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Stunning soul from the Detroit underground of the late 60s – a treasure trove of gems that literally grew up in the shadows of Motown – given that the work here was spearheaded by the Pied Piper Productions team of Jack Ashford, Mike Terry, Joe Hunter and Herbie Williams of the ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Atlantic/Warner, Late 60s. New Copy 3CD
A stunning document of early solo work from the great Robin Gibb – one full album, one never-issued album, and lots of bonus tracks too – a massive 3CD package with 63 tracks in all, 46 of which are previously unreleased! First up is the Robin's Reign album – a wonderful early ... CD (Rock)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Hum Dono
EMI/Vocalion (UK), 1969. New Copy
One of the most compelling albums ever recorded by British alto genius Joe Harriott – a very unusual record that has him working with guitarist Amanico D'Silva, in a style that's got some wonderful modal undertones! The feel here is a bit like Harriott's work with Michael Garrick – ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dagored (Italy), 1972. New Copy
Seminal Italian cop sounds from Stelvio Cipriani – penned for a key film in the poliziottesco genre in the 70s! The music here steps nicely off the style of Morricone at the time – these cool stepping orchestrations that have this inherent groove, even when moving slow – and lots ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
European Jazz Sounds
Brunswick/Be! (Germany), 1957. New Copy
Some of the earliest work we've ever heard from German tenorist Joki Freund – a player who'd trip out a bit more in later years, but who blows here with a sound that's sharp, modern, and very swinging throughout! The group features trombone from Albert Mangelsdorff, who's also on the ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Reprise/Sanctuary, 1966. New Copy (reissue)
Excellent work by The Kinks – cut right on the cusp of their earlier bluesier years, and their perfect picture postcard pop sides of the late 60s! The album's got a number of groovy little tunes that virtually put the jangle in 60s pop – with impeccable writing by Ray Davies, and all ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
CAM/Dagored (Italy), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
Great stuff – a very different Morricone soundtrack, with some incredible features! The score is for a dark film about a gangster avenging the death of his sister, and the music features a chorus of wordless vocals, sparse string passages, pipe organ, and some weirdly fuzzed-out keyboards ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rockashacka (Japan), 1978. New Copy
A replica of a disco 10" EP from the late 70s Jamaican scene – but one that's got a much deeper range of grooves! Sam Carty moves in a slow, righteous style on this alternate version of "Bird In The Hand" – very head-noddy, and with Sam's unique vocals really stepping up ... LP, Vinyl record album (Reggae)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Columbia/FTG, 1976. New Copy
An overlooked smooth soul gem from Tyrone Davis – cut during his early years at Columbia, and recorded with a sweet Chicago finish! Arrangements are by James Mack, who also handled the small backing group on the record – and Tyrone's singing with that raspy style we always love, fused ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Specialty/Concord, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD
A wonderful selection of work from the great Little Richard – a 64 track package that not only includes loads of gems from his early years on Specialty Records, but also includes a lot of near-forgotten material from his great run on Vee Jay as well! The Specialty tracks are the stuff of ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Born Bad (France), Late 60s. New Copy
Fab French grooves from the end of the 60s – funky, trippy, and a whole lot more – and a set that goes way beyond the sorts of familiar French tracks you'll know from your local coffee shop or bistro! Instead, these tunes really dig deep – very obscure work by artists who were ... LP, Vinyl record album (Funky Compilations)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
King/Universal (Japan), 1968. New Copy
A great lost album from James Brown – and totally funky! The record's got a super-hip cover that shows James standing in a blue room with three fine foxy ladies, and the words "I Can't Stand Myself When You Touch Me" are emblazoned across the top – and the whole thing's as ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
VII
Conyadosssongs, 2015. New Copy
Hard to believe we're hearing a seventh full album from the great Conya Doss – but we've also been loving the lady so long, it's hard to believe we could ever do without her! As before, Conya's working here at a level that's really a cut above – wonderful vocals, thoughtful songwriting ... CD (Neo Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Omaha Civic Auditorium 17th November 1975
Hi Hat (UK), 1975. New Copy
Herbie Hancock and his mighty Headhunters group playing live in Omaha in 1975 – in a set that may well have been the hippest thing to happen in Nebraska that year! The performance follows strongly off of Herbie's famous albums with the combo – with that perfect mix of cosmic elements ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Electronia (LP sleeve edition)
RCA/Contempo (Italy), 1965. New Copy Gatefold
A totally great little record – every bit the gem you might expect from the title and the cover! The music is less electronic than infused with all the best electric instrumental styles of the 60s on keyboards and guitar – used on these short, jaunty instrumentals that are somewhere ... CD (Sound Library)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Note, 1955. New Copy (reissue)
Great early material from Hank Mobley – a record that's practically a Jazz Messengers album, given the lineup – and which comes across with the fire and power of that classic group at their start! Mobley's tenor is set tightly in a combo that includes Horace Silver on piano, Doug ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Now Again, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy CD & Book
An artist you might not know at all – but one you'll be digging plenty after hearing this wonderful set! Richard Marks is a guitarist and singer with a very funky, very gritty sound – really right up there with the best of the funky 45 underground of the time – which makes this ... CD (Soul)
