Eddie HendersonEddie Henderson – Anthology ... CD
Soul Brother/Passion (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
The first compilation to really do justice to jazz funk legend Eddie Henderson – and a great one, too! Henderson's spacey trumpet style graced some of the best Blue Note and Capitol jazz sides to come out during the 70s – and his open-ended snakey way of playing was very different than many of his 70s contemporaries on the instrument. Plus, Eddie never minded a little bit of smooth production, and was certainly one of the more soulful players of his generation – forging a unique style that was in the same camp as Donald Byrd's sweet fusion work for Blue Note in the mid 70s, but with a spacey style that's really great. Nearly every cut on the CD features production work by Skip Drinkwater – who was to Eddie what Larry Mizell was to Donald Byrd – and most of this work has been long unavailable for years! Titles include "Kudu", "Explodition", "Involuntary Bliss", "Inside You", "Galaxy", "Butterfly", "Say You Will", "Amoroso", "Open Eyes", "Prance On", and "Hopscotch". Excellent work throughout – performed in the company of some of the 70s best funky fusion players! (Jazz, Soul) CD

Junior ParkerYou Don't Have To Be Black To Love The Blues ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A fitting title to this one – as it virtually describes the standard that the blues business was operating on during the early 70s – as artists came out of the shadows and found big audiences on college campuses, rock clubs, and other crossover scenes! The concept is carried to the Nth degree on the cover – which has a front image of a young Asian boy eating a big watermelon, Sambo-style – and the back cover features notes that say things like "Chinese kids like watermelon, Irish like bagels, black people like Jewish rye, and today everybody loves the Blues." Fortunately, this comic packaging doesn't affect the album too much – as Junior's still in the fine form he was at the end of the 60s, cruising between blues and soul, with a slight touch of jazz, in a unique way that sounds better to our ears than the work of most of his contemporaries. Titles include "Five Long Years", "That's Alright", "Way Back Home", "Man Or Mouse", and "I Like Your Style". (Blues, Soul) LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Guitar WatsonListen/I Don't Want To Be Alone, Stranger ... CD
Fantasy/Ace (UK), 1973/1975. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
2 of Johnny Guitar Watson's best albums ever – back to back on a single CD! First up is Listen – quite possibly the rarest of all Johnny Guitar Watson albums – and his first from the 70s – a mindblowing batch of trippy soul tunes that sounds far different than much of his later work! Johnny's not yet in the funky mode here – and he's working in a very cool flanged-out approach that has his vocals tripping lightly with his guitar – in a spacious soul mode that captures some of the energy of Shuggie Otis at the time. The overall sound is incredibly righteous – and the album's a delight throughout! Titles include "Lovin You", "If I Had The Power", "You Bring Love", "I Get A Feeling", and "You're The Sweetest Thing I've Ever Had". I Don't Want To Be Alone Stranger is sublime mid 70s work from Johnny Guitar Watson – a Bay Area blend of soulful production, jazzy playing, and bits of bluesy phrasing, with a hard-to-match quality that we'd put in the same camp as work by Shuggie Otis from the time. Johnny's vocals and guitar are amazing – very laidback and trippy, without all the silly stuff that you sometimes get on later records. "I Don't Want To Be A Lone Ranger" is a great stepper with a jazzy finish and a really catchy hook – and other good cuts include "Lonely Man's Prayer", "You Make My Heart Want To Sing", "Tripping", "Strong Vibrations", and "It's Way Too Late", a reworking (and real steal) of a song from Jon Lucien's great "Rashieda" album!

✨✧ VariousMore Mellow Cats & Kittens – Hot R&B & Cool Blues 1946 to 1952 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent music from that postwar stretch when it seemed like all the genres were wonderfully unstable – and so may different sounds and styles were coming into contact with each other! This set serves up a brilliant batch of genre-crossing sounds from the LA scene at the time – music that isn't quite jazz, isn't really blues, maybe hints at R&B to come – yet which somehow bristles with the best that all those styles had to offer – and a lot more too! The work here is all from the stunningly deep catalog of Modern Records – and the collection features 15 tracks that have never been issued before – all documenting the wonderful wealth of fresh styles coming out of LA at the time. The work here has echoes of bop, swing, and lots of soulful modes to come – and titles include "Yas Yas Yas" by Three Bits Of Rhythm, "Bardu's Boogie" by Bardu Ali, "Just Got Back" by Jimmy Grissom, "How Long" by Kitty Stevenson, "Bacon Blues" by Clarence Williams, "Cake Jumps" by Al Cake Wichard, "Goodnight Wherever You Are" by The Scamps, "Lazy Daisy" by The Noc-Tunes, "Sister Kool Breeze" by Jake Porter, "Billboard Special" by tiny Webb, "Looky Ploot" by Emmitt Slay & His Slayriders, "Going Home Blues" by Hootie McShann, "Your Red Wagon" by Butch Stone, and "Jive I Like" by Pearl Traylor.

✨✧ Doug Clark & The Hot NutsPanty Raid ... LP
Gross, Late 60s. Very Good ... $3.99
They still haven't kicked Doug Clark off campus yet, and he's working the college crowds here in a party-heavy mix of songs and off-color patter – a kinder, less profanity oriented approach to the party record style – but one that's still plenty darn great! As with other Hot Nuts albums, the best bits here are the ones where Clark works out a run of simple gags during a run of shorter jokes – all strung together in a song-based mode. Great panty raid cover too! (Comedy/Spoken, Soul) LP, Vinyl record album

Lee DorseyRide Your Pony – Get Out Of My Life, Woman ... LP
Amy, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A stunning album of raw New Orleans soul – recorded by the great Lee Dorsey, with production by Allen Toussaint and Marshall Sehorn! The record falls in the same camp as The Meters – and although Dorsey's work has vocals, the choppy instrumental backing is pure Crescent City all the way – even though the cover art oddly features a bunch of teenagers in New York City! Titles include the monster funky break track "Get Out Of My Life Woman", the wonderfully funky "Ride Your Pony", plus loads of other nice ones like "The Kitty Cat Song", "So Long", "Work Work Work", "Shortnin Bread", "Can You Hear Me", and "People I Wish You Could See".

✨✧ Norma JeanNorma Jean ... LP
Bearsville/Warner, 1978. Sealed ... $4.99
Norma Jean Wright was one of the singers in Chic – the super-huge pop-disco combo led by Bernie Edwards and Nile Rogers. This solo album was issued during the height of the group's fame, and it's got a lot of elements of Chic's style – but also more of a straighter soul edge. Tracks are a bit less campy, and Norma goes for some soulful moments on tracks like "I Believe In You", "Saturday", "This Is The Love", and "So I Get Hurt". LP, Vinyl record album

Syl JohnsonDiamond In The Rough (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Hi Records/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. Used ... $11.99
The great Syl Johnson – doing his thing for Hi Records on a record that's more shiny diamond than it is rough – his second album for the label and a truly underappreciated gem from the Chi soul great! Diamond In The Rough is a much sweeter set of tunes than Syl's Chicago work on Twinight, with warmer production by southern soul guru Willie Mitchell to keep his sound much more in the Memphis soul camp – but still a nice album of bluesy stoked sweetness, and proof that Syl was one of the better talents on the Hi label. Titles include "Keeping Down Confusion", "Let Yourself Go", "Could I Be Falling In Love", "Stuck In Chicago", and "I Hear The Love Chimes", "Please, Don't Give Up On Me" and "Diamond In The Rough".

Lattimore BrownNobody Has To Tell Me ... CD
Sound Stage 7/Soulscape (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 19.99
Sound Stage Seven recordings from Lattimore Brown – a heck of a great southern soul singer from the 60s, but one who almost never gets his due in the history books! Lattimore's got a raspy quality to his voice that's very much in the Bobby Blue Bland camp – but the backings he gets on these singles are much more soul-based than Bobby's work – and groove with the best mix of southern and funky styles used during the classic Sound Stage Seven years! Brown's voice is fantastic all the way through – easily at a level that should have made his work rival that of the best on Stax or Atlantic at the time – and his lack of fame is probably only due to the smaller distribution received by the SSS label. CD features a great range of tracks – 21 titles in all – including material that originally appeared on the Sound Stage Seven, Seventy Seven, and Renegade labels – with very detailed notes on Brown and his music. Titles include "I Will", "Sweet Desire", "Yak A Poo", "Boo Ga Lou Sue", "Please Please Please", "Little Bag Of Tricks (parts 1 & 2)", "It's Such A Sad Sad World", "So Says My Heart", "Cruse On Fanny Cruise On", "Otis Is Gone (parts 1 & 2)", "Shake & Vibrate", "Nobody Has To Tell Me", and "I Know I'm Gonna Miss You".

MontanaHeavy Vibes ... CD
Temposphere (Italy), Late 70s/1980s. Used 2CD ... $12.99
Stunning – an overloaded set of grooves by one of the greatest Philly soul talents ever! Vince Montana's probably had a hand in more records than you'd think – either playing vibes, which he did on countless Philly classics, or arranging and producing, which he did with a freewheeling soulful style, influencing club music for years with his unique talents! Vince has mostly preferred to work in the background – hiding out under the names of groups like Philly Sound Works, Montana, or Goody Goody, and laboring endlessly in the biggest factory of modern soul ever, the landmark Sigma Sound Studios in Philly. This set's one of the first to ever do him justice – a huge sampling of work recorded in the late 70s and 1980s, when Vince's talents were still riding very high, and in some ways, he was working as a one-man campaign to keep alive the MSFB style of the 70s – still working in a very classic mode, a blend of soul, jazz, disco, and funk – augmented with the sorts of quality touches that were rarely turning up in music at the time. CD features 22 titles on 2 CDs – including "It Looks Like Love (new club)", "Esto Parese Amor (love vibes)", "Heavy Vibes (club mix)", "It Looks Like Love", "Do It Any Way You Wanna", "What Happened To The Music", "Make Me Hot (dub)", "I Wanna Know", and "South Soul Party (club mix)". Great package, with a nice book on Vince, too! CD

Rudy Ray MooreDolemite For President ... LP
Kent, 1972. Very Good ... $4.99
Rudy Ray Moore takes the white house – or at least tries to – in this cool 1972 album that must have been a great antidote to the campaigns of Richard Nixon and George McGovern! The set starts with Rudy running his way through a whole bunch of campaign issues – including "Free Love" and "Mary Wanna" – all delivered in faux politico mode, with a crowd cheering him on, and an introduction that features music from "Exodus"! The rest of the set is a bit more typical Dolemite material – almost even more raunchy than the presidential mode – and other titles include "Dance Of The Freaks", "Bulldaggers", "Good Pussy Lil", and "Sit In Your Mama's Lap". Language is raw – so be warned! LP, Vinyl record album

Asha PuthliAsha Puthli ... LP
CBS, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Asha Pulthi's first album – an excellent set of funky soul tunes, recorded in Germany with backings that are a mixture of spacey electric, smooth funk, and campy easy grooves. Asha's voice is very weird – a bit in the "love to love you baby" mode, and with a range of sounds that moves up and down the scale almost as much as Minnie Riperton. The record's got a nice mix of jazzy arrangements, and Asha's unique high-pitched vocals work great on tracks like "Lies", "Right Down Here", and George Harrison's "I Dig Love". Other tracks include "Truth", "I Am A Song", "Let Me In Your Life", and "This Is Your Life". LP, Vinyl record album

William SalterIt Is So Beautiful To Be ... CD
Marlin/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... About January 25, 2017 (delayed)
Sophisticated soul from William Salter – a lost treasure from the Ralph MacDonald camp at the end of the 70s, and a vocalist that we only know from this one obscure album! MacDonald produced the set with William Eaton – who also did the arrangements, as he did on some of Ralph's own work – and Salter sings lead in a style that's part modern soul, part adult – working with some nice jazzy touches on the best cuts. The album's got work from jazzers like Bob James, Eddie Daniels, and Jon Faddis – plus backup vocals from Patti Austin and Valerie Simpson – and the best tracks groove along at midtempo pace with a sunny kind of finish. There's a few clunkers on here, but the good cuts more than make up for them – and titles include "You Got Style", "It Is So Beautiful To Be", "Three Days Of Flowers", "Lena", and "When You Smile" – a nice jazzy stepping tune!

✨✧ Allen ToussaintSouthern Nights (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise/4 Men With Beards, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
Damn great work from Allen Toussaint – a record that was cut at a time when he'd really made his way into the mainstream of American music, yet could still come across with a hard New Orleans groove! The title cut, "Southern Nights", is a perfect illustration of this fact – as it was written by Toussaint, but became a big hit for Glen Campbell, who recorded a very soppy version of the number. Yet here, Allen turns it into a weird trippy tune – produced with great Sansu production, and backing by New Orleans legends like Leo Nocentelli, George Porter, and Art Neville – all of whom help the tune bristle with new energy, and a really sinister groove. The rest of the record continues in a similar vein – with a spacey LA mellow sound that actually works great for Toussaint's vocals, and gives them a wild flanged-out sound that's pretty amazing – and downright spooky at points! Titles include "Southern Nights", "Basic Lady", "Last Train", "Worldwide", "You Will Not Lose", "When The Party's Over", and "What Do You Want The Girl To Do". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousCole Slaw Music Club – A Rhythm & Blues Revue ... CD
Cree (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy ... $21.99 24.99
Hard-grooving R&B from a host of hip talents from the 50s – music that's a bit blues, a bit jazz, and which goes past the obvious tunes you'd usually find on a collection like this! The cuts were chosen by the folks at the Cole Slaw Club in Germany – a specialist spot to step to old school grooves like these – and the sounds are a very cool mix of jukebox jive, groovy instrumentals, and some deeper-voiced tunes that really give the collection a lot of depth! The collection's not afraid to step between different genres in search of a swinging groove – in the best Bear Family/Cree Records style – and titles include "I Changed My Mind Jack" by Jo Ann Campbell, "Spider In The Web" by The Dooley Sisters, "Big John" by Richard Berry, "The Sneak" by Jimmy Oliver's Orchestra, "Salome Twist" by The Carroll Brothers, "Talk About Me" by Screamin Jay Hawkins, "Sugar Diabetes" by Eddie Banks, "Stolen Love" by Miss Lavell, "Sweet Little Love Like You" by Al Brown & The Tune Toppers, "Dance Of The Goony Bird" by Pat Miller, "Summertime" by Sylvia Mora, and "My Old Man" by Buddy & Ella Johnson.

VariousDisco Fantasy – Songs Inspired By Stage, Screen, & Superheroes ... CD
Essential, Late 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
Some of the most playful tracks of the disco generation – songs that draw a heavy inspiration from film and TV – sometimes by offering up clubby covers of the original versions, sometimes by taking off in great new directions of their own! There's a decidedly camp vibe to the set – as some older themes are updated with disco rhythms and soaring strings – or other tracks take off into the "fantasy" territory of the title, by bringing a strong 70s vibe to subjects that you might not expect. Our all-time favorite cut here is the wonderful "Superman" by Celi Bee & The Buzzy Bunch – and other cuts include "Night Fever" by Carol Douglas, "Star Wars" by Boris Midney, "Star Trek (ext)" by Shufflin Tymes, "The Entertainer" by JR Bailey, "Love Boat" by Jack Jones, "Theme From Swat" by Inner City Symphony, "More" by Carol Williams, "Don't Cry For Me Argentina (12" mix)" by Festival, and "Secret Agent Man (ext mix)" by Ultimate.

VariousOut In The Streets Again – The Soul Sounds of Scepter (2016 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Scepter/Sundazed, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $24.99
Rare soul from the Scepter label – the famous home to the early work of Dionne Warwick and Burt Bacharach, but a very hip record company with a strong commitment to underground soul in the 60s! The best of that stretch is presented here – in a really well-done collection that's filled with obscure tracks that only every appeared as 45s, including some obscure cuts by bigger names, including a few that might surprise you! There's also a few blue-eyed soul tracks here too – titles that might seem a bit surprising on paper, but really fit the groove of the collection. Titles include "Work Song" by Tommy Hunt, "Dearly Beloved" by Jack Montgomery, "Just One More Time" by JJ Barnes, "The Change" by Ernestine Eady, "I'm Stepping Out Of The Picture" by Johnny Maestro & The Crests, "Out In The Streets Again" by Candy & The Kisses, "Lost Love" by Irma & The Fascinators, "Hey Watcha Doin" by Jerry Tiffe, "Marching" by The Camp, "Groovy Guy" by The Shirelles, "Tonight's The Night" by Candy & The Kisses, and "Ain't No Soul Left In These Old Shoes" by Ronnie Milsap.
