Big Legal Mess/Fat Possum, 1960s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Raw and rumbling gospel sounds from the Designer Records vaults – real and resonant southern gospel from Reverend Douglas Bell & Th Stage Cruisers! Heavy vocals & sermonizing with swirling organ and wailing keyboards along with the impassioned vocals. As with the material on the Together compilation, the material is well produced, with bluesy, gritty immediacy. Titles include "Nuclear Blast", "Bitter And The Sweet", "I Got To Make Heaven My Home", "Hard Love Affair", "I Got A Home", "I'll Fight Goliath", "How Many Miles To Heaven", "What You Need From The Lord" and more.

Luther Johnson with Muddy Waters Blues BandCome On Home ... LP
Douglas, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Wild guitar from Luther Johnson – an obscure earlier session recorded with a nicely gritty feel, and a fair bit of funk in the rhythms too! The group's billed as the Muddy Waters Blues Band – and Muddy appears to be on the record, although the notes are a bit lean – and the album features a number of great instrumentals, with really ripping guitar solos – plus a few vocal tracks too. The record's got a raw sound that's more of a Delmark Chicago blues vibe than a Chess Records one – and titles include "Top Of The Boogaloo", "Sting It", "Natural Wig", "Blues For Hippies", "Remember Me", "Snake", and "Sad Day Uptown".

KainBlue Guerrilla ... LP
Juggernaut, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the rawest, hardest-hitting albums of soul poetry of the 70s! Kain – aka Gylan Kain – was a member of the original Last Poets, a group who emerged in New York during the late 60s, but were eclipsed by the second (more famous) ensemble sharing the name who recorded for Douglas Records. Kain's anger and passion is incredible – far stronger than anything you'd hear on any of the better-known Last Poets records of the early 70s – and this solo record is completely over the top, both politically and performance-wise. The record has a hard hard hard sound – with over-the-top spoken bits that almost make the other Last Poets seem like they're kind of mellow. Cuts include "Silly Sh*t", "Harlem Preacher", "I Ain't Black", and "Constipated Monkey". Juggy Murray produced – and the album's a wild wild trip! LP, Vinyl record album

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.

VariousHarp Blues – Stompin, Wailin Amplified Harmonica Blues From The Classic Postwar Masters ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 40s/1950s/1960s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
One of the best collections of harmonica blues we've ever heard – a totally smoking set that focuses on the hippest material of the postwar years – filled with obscure tracks that go way past some of the overplayed tracks in the genre! Almost all the tunes here have the instrument blown boldly, and through a microphone with really great force – as you'd guess from the image on the cover – with a sound that's still pretty darn amazing all these many years later, as the instrument is taken from a rootsy role into a very powerful mode of expression during the years in which the electric guitar was also having a huge influence on the music too! Most of the numbers mix soulful vocals with searing harp blues solos – and titles include "A Fool No More" by Eddie Hope & Manish Boys, "Ride With Your Daddy Tonight" by Frank Frost, "Wine Women Whiskey" by Papa Lightfoot, "Walking By Myself" by Jimmy Rogers, "Chicago Breakdown" by Doctor Ross, "Up The River" by Cousin Leroy, "Steady" by Jerry McCain, "Monkey Doin Woman" by Shy Guy Douglas, "Western Union Man" by Chicago Sunny Boy, and "Boogie Twist" by Snooky Pryor.

VariousNo Jive – Authentic Southern Country Blues ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Rootsy blues from the great Excello Records – most of it recorded not too far from the Tennessee city in which the label made its home! The southern scene in the 50s was going through plenty of changes – partly because of all the migration northwards that started during the wartime years, partly because of the way that radio and growing indie labels were helping criss-cross sounds and scenes through their musical efforts – with a huge run of changes that were taking place in the urban scene. Even out in the sticks, stronger use of the electric guitar really transformed rural blues – even in spare recording settings that might have mirrored blues records of the 20s and 30s – and the use of new ideas, new inflections, and new ways of putting over a tune are perfectly captured here in a batch of rare tracks done by the Excello label. Most of the cuts are super-rare singles, issued here with excellent sound – and there's a few other numbers on the set that are issued here for the first time ever – with great sound and excellent notes. Titles include "I'm Bad" by Good Rockin Bob, "No Jive" by Little Al, "Honey Babe" by Arthur Gunter, "The Natural Facts" by Leroy Campbell, "Wasted Time" by Shy Guy Douglas, "Dirty Britches" by The Leap Frogs, "Welcome Home Baby" by Slim Hunt, and "Quit My Drinkin" by Robert Garrett.

VariousPied Piper Finale ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Rare soul from the Detroit underground of the 60s – all of it from the vaults of Pied Piper Productions – a fantastic company who flourished in the shadows of Motown! Pied Piper was headed by Motown percussionist Jack Ashford – who contributed to many better-known Detroit soul tracks of the period – and the music here draws on all the experience that Ashford had with that bigger label, and sometimes borrows a bit of Motown talent as well! Yet the music is also more in the indie mode, too – similar to excellent Detroit singles on imprints like Groovesville or D-Town, both of which would be good comparisons to the Pied Piper sound. Some tracks are instrumental, but the majority of the work is vocal – and features some top-shelf singers and groups – all documented in the wonderful notes in the package. You'll recognize a few of these tracks from titles that Pied Piper placed with bigger labels, but there's also some small imprint singles, and even some unreleased tracks as well – 24 titles that include "It Takes Two" by The Four Sonics, "No Baby" by The Metros, "Ease My Mind" by Lorraine Chandler, "I Can't Change" by Yvonne Baker & The Sensations, "I Like Your Style" by Freddy Butler, "Crazy Things" by Joseph Douglas, "I'd Like To Know" by The Pied Piper Players, "American Dollar" by Willie Kendrick, "It's Better" by Reggie Alexander, "Soul Superman" by The Hesitations, "She Don't Want You" by Lorraine Chandler, "We Go Together" by The Cavaliers, "That Girl Of Mine" by The Persians, "Deserted" by Freddy Butler, "I'm With You" by September Jones, "Sweetest One" by The Metros, and "Gambler's Blues" by Nancy Wilcox.

✨✧ VariousMusic City Blues & Soul – The Best Of Bullet & Sur-Speed Records ... CD
Road Records, 1960s. Used ... Out Of Stock
An under-documented side of the Nashville scene of the 60s – and part of that city's rich legacy of underground soul and blues recordings! The set brings together rare singles from the related Bullet and Sur-Speed labels – companies formed on the older history of R&B work for Bullet, but who were recorded in a more strongly soul-based approach during the 60s. The sound here is still relatively rough and rootsy – not so much the warmer deep soul of other southern labels, but a style that's frayed a bit around the edges, and recorded without the fuller backings that accompanied better-known southern soulsters of the time. At some level, there's almost a Birth Of Soul feel to the set – even though most of the work was cut more strongly after the start of the genre on other labels. Titles include "All I Want From You" and "You're The Only Good Thing" by Art Mayes, "Walk Tall" by Johnny Bragg, "Go On Girl" by The Cheques, "Look Out Heart" and "Just Two Of A Kind" by Rubin Russell, "Recipe For Love" and "Surfside Slide" by John Colbert, "I'm So Glad You're Home" and "Somebody Help Me" by Larry Birdsong, "Sugar Daddy" and "Lovin On My Mind" by Levert Allison, "Mean Man" by Robert Garrett, and "Stone Doin Alright" by Shy Guy Douglas.
