Chuck BerryBack Home ... LP
Chess, 1970. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Surprisingly nice work from Chuck Berry – material recorded at the start of the 70s, all with a sound that's much more bluesy than you might expect! There's hardly any oldies cliches going on here at all – and although Chuck still pushes his classic chugging guitar groove on many numbers, it's got less of the overplayed style that you might expect. Production is slightly hip, and although not in the funkier mode of other Chess blues sides of the time, there is a subtle undercurrent of funkiness in some of the rhythms. Titles include "Instrumental", "Gun", "Christmas", "Tulane", "Some People", "Fish & Chips", and "Flyin Home". (Soul, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover & labels have a drillhole through the center.)

Chuck BerryConcerto In B Goode (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Mercury/Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $29.99
If you think that Chuck Berry only hit his heights at Chess Records, then get ready to change your mind – as this late 60s record for Mercury is quite a cooker! Side one has Berry working in a cool hybrid of blues and soul, but with some very weird production – handled by Chuck himself, with almost a nod towards the way that the younger generation was messing up electric blues a bit with their rock experiments. Chuck uses a bit of unusual echo here and there, but still nicely avoids any cliched attempts to cash in with a rock blues mode – and then on side two, he really gets crazy – by offering up a side-long song that runs for over 18 minutes in length – the mighty "Concerto In B Goode", which is one hell of a guitar-heavy jam! Other shorter titles include "Good Looking Woman", "It's Too Dark In There", "Put Her Down", and "My Woman". (Soul, Rock) CD
(SHM-CD pressing!)

K BytesI Adore Commodore – Computer Music Flash ... LP
Mondo Groove (Italy), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A naked guy, holding a Commodore computer – a image that gives you a very good idea of what to expect here! The songs are all instrumentals, made on the Commdore at a time when that computer was one of the hottest things going – and they're all sexy, slinky numbers that move between electro groove styles – sometimes with a bit of soundtrack drama, sometimes with more of a funky flair! Titles include "Omega Race", "Jupiter Lander", "Space Invaders", "Le Mans", "Solar Fox", "Sargon Chess", "Depth Charge", and "Blue Print". (Sound Library, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album

OrmDiscofil (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Panton/GAD (Poland), 1979. New Copy ... $16.99
Disco grooves from 70s Poland – music that might seem like a joke at first glance, but which comes off quite nicely – thanks to lots of keyboard work on moog, Hammond, Arp, and Fender Rhodes! The keyboards are really the star of the set – even though there's vocals from keyboardist Peter Orm on many cuts – but the approach is relatively stripped-down and lean, less American disco than that moment when some of the European groups who might have once been prog shortened their songs, upped the rhythms, and allowed for lots of nice keyboard elements – ala the Italian groups in the Cosmic scene! Peter's partner in the group is Pavel Orm, who handles guitars and bass – and titles include "Magic Fly", "Chime Course", "Further & More", "Chess King", "Weekend", "Winding Off The Tape", "Boomerang", and "It's Only Moon Of Know Of Us". CD features bonus tracks – single versions of "Boomerang", "Fany & Any", "Carousel", and "Magic Fly". CD

✨✧ MaudsHold On ... LP
Mercury, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly groovy outing from the Chicago scene of the 60s – a garagey group, but one with some soulful touches too! The set was partially recorded at Chess studios, and Eddie Higgins handled some of the arrangements – and the record features versions of "Knock On Wood", "Harlem Shuffle", "When Something Is Wrong With My Baby", "Mercy Mercy Mercy", and "Hold On". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Frank David Selection with Okko & Herb GellerBlues & Electronics ... LP
MPS/BASF, 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the strangest MPS albums we've ever seen – almost a German counterpart album to the famous Moogie Woogie session on Chess! This one's exactly what's promised by the title – a mixture of blues and electronics – and while the blues are straight on some numbers, right down to the vocals, on other tracks they take a freer approach that opens up into a range of great sounds! Side two features the extended "Space Suite" which stretches into some great jamming tracks that have much more of a cosmic fusion sound than the straighter blues on side one – and the tunes feature some great funky sax and flute work by Herb Geller, plus great moogy bits by Okko and Simon Alcott. Titles include "Lost In Outer Space", "Fly Me To The Moog", "Destination Unknown", "Galactic Breakdown", "OK Blues", and "Blues In Electronic Flat". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has some wear with a sticker remant in one corner.)

✨✧ Chuck BerryFrom St Louie To Frisco ... LP
Mercury, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
The title might say "Frisco", but the album's a real back-to-basics record from Chuck Berry – produced by the man himself, with a lean, stripped-down vibe that almost goes back to his earlier work at Chess Records! There's definitely a few 60s soul currents in the mix, but in the best way possible – helping Berry mature his sound a bit, but without turning it towards any easy crossover gimmicks – which means that there's still a lot of bluesy elements at the core, and Chuck's charms really come through on both his vocals and guitar. Titles include "Louie To Frisco", "Ma Dear", "The Love I Lost", "Rock Cradle Rock", "Misery", and "I Can't Believe". (Soul, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed! Cover has a small cutout hole.)

Mark MorrissTaste Of Mark Morriss ... CD
Acid Jazz (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $16.99
Solo work from Mark Morriss – formerly a member of The Bluetones, but maybe even more striking here as an artist on his own! The album features a compelling mix of covers – songs originally recorded by Jess Conrad, Scott Walker, OMD, Buffalo Springfield, Jesus & Mary Chain, Weezer, and even Madonna – but all given a very personal spin by Morriss! Mark's got this way of weaving together different 60s influences – a bit of blue-eyed pop, touches of mod or psych instrumentation, even some slightly folksy currents – all to suit the modes of the individual songs – with a mode that maybe even gets past the idea of any sort of single style for the record. Titles include "Duchess", "Self Control", "Angel", "Almost Gold", "Don't Let Go", "Love Comes Quickly", "Rock & Roll Woman", "Souvenir", "This Pullover", and "Lucretia (My Reflection)". CD
