✨✧ Last PoetsLast Poets (Douglas pressing) ... LP
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!

✨✧ Diddys featuring Paige DouglasAgony & Extasy (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
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

Last PoetsThis Is Madness ... LP
Douglas, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ New York City BandNew York City Band ... CD
Douglas (France), 1979. New Copy ... Temporarily 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

Lost Highway, Mid 40s/1950s/1960s/Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... $10.99
A pretty amazing batch of soul, R&B, and funk from the Nashville scene – from an astonishing range of years, too! Of course the memorabilia industry that is "Music City USA" is dominated by country music and pop, and this long, long, LONG overdue collection of singles from 1945-1970 demonstrates how much more was going on in East Tennessee beyond Chet Atkins and the Opry! The tunes range from jump blues & soul of the late 40s and 50s, and on through the harmony soul of the 60s and the pre-funk late 60s. 38 tracks on two CDs: "Nashville Jumps" by Cecil Gant, "Just Walkin' In The Rain" by The Prisonaires, "Baby Let's Play House" by Arthur Gunter, "Christene" by Little Hank Crawford, "You Can Make It If You Try" by Gene Allison, "Somebody, Somewhere" by Larry Birdsong, "Monkey Doin' Woman" by Shy Guy Douglas, "What'd I Say" by Etta James, "Snap Your Fingers" by Joe Henderson, "I Want To" by Joe Tex, "The Chokin'" Kind" by Joe Simon, "Rediscover Me" by Johnny Adams and tons more!

✨✧ VariousCharlie Gillett's Radio Picks – Honky Tonk Vol 2 ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... 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. New Copy ... 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.
