Last PoetsThis Is Madness ... CD
Douglas/Restless, 1971. Used ... $6.99
One of the Last Poets greatest albums – and one of their most sophisticated as well! Gone are the rough-hewn rhymes of the group's first album, and in their place are better arranged, more thought-out tracks that mix in a wealth of musical influences – and which expand the group's verbal expression past simple protests, and into the realm of Jazzoetry that became their trademark during the mid 70s. Tracks include "Related to What", "Black Is", "White Man's Got a God Complex", "Black People What Y'All Gonna Do", and "This is Madness" – and a number of tracks are preceded by strong and forceful chants before the lyrics kick in!

✨✧ New York City BandNew York City Band ... CD
Douglas (France), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An unusual group – but a nice little record! New York City Band are less of a group on their own, than a combo pulled together for this album – an ersatz soundtrack to the film Sunnyside, a disco-era production starring John Travolta's younger brother Joey! The group's mostly directed and organized by keyboardist Harold Wheeler, who gives their work a smooth groove that's pretty nice on the best cuts – a bit disco-fied, but also with some jazz funk touches – and still pretty strong thanks to vocal contributions from Luther Vandross, Lani Groves, and others. Titles include "Loving You", "Got To Have Your Body", "Ride That Wave", "New York City Band", "Sometimes", and "Sunnyside". CD

✨✧ Last PoetsRight On! ... LP
Juggernaut, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $16.99
One of the wildest albums ever by the mighty Last Poets! Billed as "a woodstock in poetry", this is the soundtrack to the obscure film Right On (billed as "the hit film" on the cover), which was shot using the first version of the Last Poets that included Felipe Lucianao, David Nelson, and the wild card Gylan Kain – a group who originally had the name and style of protest poetry, but who had been eclipsed when the poet Abiodun left them and formed the group that first recorded for Douglas Records. The album, sort of a "we're back" effort, was produced by Juggy Murray, and apparently all recorded at the Cubiculo Theatre in New York – and it's one of two albums on the Juggernaut label, which also featured Kain's solo record. Most of the record is spare percussion, with the band shouting over the top – and the sound is even rawer than the group's first LP on Douglas. The titles should say it all – as the record features "My Pretty N*gger", "Tell Me Brother", "Die Nigga!", "James Brown", "Soul", "Poetry Is Black", "Into The Streets", and "Library", clearly a big influence on KRS-1.

✨✧ VariousCharlie Gillett's Radio Picks – Honky Tonk Vol 2 ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
R&B, soul, roots rock, country, and more – all served up in a heady space that was the unique sound of Charlie Gillett's famous Honky Tonk radio show in the 70s! Charlie did a heck of a lot for breaking down musical barriers at the time – and was a hugely influential DJ whose work in London also helped shape an American understanding of musical roots as well – as Gillett could effortlessly bring together sounds from many different sides of the spectrum, finding stylistic elements that really unified the music! The range of work here is spun over decades, varied scenes, and many styles – but the whole thing sounds great together, and is supported by really rich notes on Gillett's show and his lasting musical legacy. Titles include "Walk On By" by Leroy Van Dyke, "Tulsa Telephone Book" by Tom T Hall, "Saturday Night" by Roy Brown, "Nitty Gritty" by Sir Douglas Quintet, "Red Hot" by Billy The Kid Emerson, "Foolish You" by Kate & Anna McGarrigle, "Sweet Dreams" by Roy Buchanan, "Love My Baby" by Little Junior's Blue Flames, "The Swan" by Jona Lewie, "Such A Night" by Dr John, "Ruler Of My Heart" by Irma Thomas, "Stealing In The Name Of The Lord" by Paul Kelly, "The Promised Land" by Johnnie Allan, "Lover Please" by Dennis Turner, and "Think" by The 5 Royales.

✨✧ VariousGroove – Belgium Popcorn – Blended Soul & R&B With Eastern Promise ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not entirely soul, but not really pop either – and instead a special sort of space that's always been dug by soul fans in the Belgian scene! The groove here was dubbed "popcorn" many years back – and it features soulful vocals coming into play with tight 60s production – stomping rhythms, sparkling strings, and perfect production that often brings in some cool echoey touches to the mix! The feel here is quite different than the usual northern soul set of this nature – and a great illustration that there's still so much to learn about 60s soul music in general – as evidenced by the range of artists included, and the great record label images inside the cover! Titles include "Promised Land" by Buddy Lamp, "I Gotta Run" by Bobby Scott, "That's All It Takes" by Carrol Connors, "Let Her Go" by Gene Stridel, "Steady Cha Cha" by Frank Pizani, "Quite Girl" by Don Rondo, "Cha Cha Italiano" by Mary Mazza, "You'll Come Back" by Ronny Douglas, and "Living Dream" by Lenny Miles.
