✨✧ 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 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!

Last PoetsLast Poets/This Is Madness (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Douglas/Snapper (UK), 1970/1971. New Copy 2 CDs ... $10.99 11.98
The first two Last Poets albums back to back in one great 2CD set! The Last Poets is 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! This Is Madness is 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! Deluxe package comes with 2 CDs – and bonus tracks that include "Sport" and "Spoon" by Lightnin Rod – plus "Doriella Du Fontaine", which features Lightnin Rod and Jimi Hendrix! CD

✨✧ Luther Johnson with Muddy Waters Blues BandCome On Home ... LP
Douglas, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Malcolm XHis Wit & Wisdom ... LP
Douglas, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the strongest albums of recordings we've heard by Malcolm X – issued on the Douglas Records label, and featuring shorter snippets of longer speeches. The package is put together with a strong focus on Malcolm's true charisma as a speaker – his incredible ability to deliver righteous messages with a down-home charm and a good degree of wit. Very nice stuff – and although we wish the set had better notes, we're more than happy to listen without them! (Comedy/Spoken, Soul) LP, Vinyl record album

VariousHarp Blues – Stompin, Wailin Amplified Harmonica Blues From The Classic Postwar Masters ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 40s/1950s/1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 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 ... $11.99 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.

✨✧ VariousDisco Fantasy – Songs Inspired By Stage, Screen, & Superheroes ... CD
Essential, Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ VariousWarner Pop Rock Nuggets Vol 4 – Yes I Will ... CD
Warner (Japan), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Totally great tracks from a magical moment in pop music – that special period when rock had already gotten going, mainstream pop wasn't as soppy as the decade before, and soul music was starting to have a strong influence in the way both singers and groups delivered their vocals! All those qualities and more come into play here – in a fantastic series of cuts that come from deep in the Warner Brothers vaults – not just music from the main label, but also all the indies they've come to absorb over the years – labels like Colpix, Del-Fi, Gone, Mustang, Jubilee, and others who were an even greater force for music like this! The "nuggets" in the title is one way to see these cuts – material that came out in the generation right before the harder-edged material featured in the Nuggets series – but every bit as inventive and great in its own way. Volume 4 includes 25 great tracks – with a fair bit of UK numbers (previous volumes were more US) – and titles that include "It's Not Easy" by Normie Rowe, "Don't Just Stand There" by Danny Williams, "Driftin" by The Drifters, "Shakin All Over" by Johnny Kidd & The Pirates, "A Change Of Heart" by Craig Douglas, "I'm The One Who Loves You" by The Paramounts, "Baby I Need Your Loving" by The Fourmost, "Rudi's In Love" by The Locomotive, and "Come To The Party" by The Image.
