Carl DouglasKung Fu Fighting – And Other Great Love Songs ... LP LP format
20th Century, 1976. Very Good ... $3.99
Carl Douglas' classic pop soul track about "Kung Fu Fighting" is an enduring favorite, as we're reminded everytime our local UHF station cops it for a promo for a martial arts double feature they're running on Saturday afternoon! The rest of the tracks on here aren't as great, but there's some nice moments with a similar feel to the hit – like "Dance The Kung Fu", and "Changing Times". LP, Vinyl record album

New Last PoetsLast Poets (Douglas pressing) ... LP LP format
Douglas, 1970. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first album by the second group to call themselves the Last Poets – and as fierce a document of their rich talents as you'll ever find – bursting forth with anger and righteousness at a level as tight as Gil Scott-Heron's first album! The group here is the key second lineup of the ensemble of wordsmiths – comprised of Abiodun Oyewole, Alafia Pudim, and Omar Ben Hassan, plus the percussionist Nilaja – and most cuts feature only spare percussion backing over the spoken protest poetry – delivered with a brutal edge that really sums up the righteous politics of the time. Titles include "Run, N*gger", "On The Subway", "When The Revolution Comes", "Jones Comin' Down", "Black Thighs", "N*ggers Are Scared Of Revolution", and "Wake Up, N*ggers" – all of which should give you a good picture of what's going on with the record! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has moderate wear and a worn spine. Vinyl plays with clicks and crackles.)

New Diddys featuring Paige DouglasAgony & Extasy (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Bam-Boo/Shout (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very cool, really rare soul album from the Philly scene – one that was written, produced, and arranged by Hammond organist Charles Earland – but which is a sweet soul album with a really great feel! There's definitely a touch of Earland's keyboard work on the set – especially some of those non-organ lines he brought to his records for Mercury – and there's a jazzy groove that really sets The Diddys apart from other east coast groups of the time – a more complex approach to rhythm and instrumentation that almost makes some of the tunes feel as if they came from the James Mason side of the spectrum! The whole thing's wonderful – as unique as it is rare – and titles include "Intergalactic Love Song", "Strange Love", "Your Love Is Like A See Saw Baby", "How Long Have You Loved Him", and "My Special Love". CD features lots of bonus tracks – alternate takes of nearly every number on the record! CD

KainBlue Guerrilla ... LP LP format
Juggernaut, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $7.99
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

VariousCharlie Gillett's Radio Picks – Honky Tonk Vol 2 ... CD CD format
Ace (UK), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
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 CD format
Outta Sight (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
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.

VariousSweet N Salty Popcorn ... CD CD format
Croydon Municipal (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
A bit soul, a bit pop, a bit vocal – and a wonderful batch of tunes pulled together in support of the "popcorn" sound of the Belgian scene! The popcorn groove is different than Northern Soul, but shares a similar love of old vinyl – in this case a compelling blend of songs from a range of different sources, almost all of which have a hip stepping rhythm at the bottom, perfect for a different sort of soulful dancefloor! Some cuts showcase well-crafted vocals over the groove, others are instrumental, and the mix of artists here is really unusual – hardly talents you'd expect to hear together on the same collection, until you pop in the CD and dig its wonderful grooves. The package was put together for St Etienne's Croydon Municipal label, and has a feel that's every bit as playful as their imagined "Songs For" series – and titles include "To The One I Love" by Roy Hamilton, "Find Another Girl" by Jerry Butler, "Continental Strut" by Little Iva, "La Tanya" by Jay Abbott, "Some Of Your Lovin" by Johnny Nash, "The Tingle" by Jackie Weaver, "Johnny With The Gentle Hands" by Eartha Kitt, "River In My Blood" by Steve Karmen, "Elephant Walk" by Donald & The Delighters, and "Oh What A Day" by Craig Douglas.
