MetersMessage From The Meters – Complete Josie, Reprise, & Warner Singles 1968 to 1977 ... CD
Warner/Real Gone, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $24.99 27.98
Heavy soul by one of the funkiest groups of all time – New Orleans mighty Meters, a group who forever set a new standard with the classic singles featured in this package! The Meters are an instrumental group at their core – with a moody blend of heady basslines, bubbling organ, and scratchy guitar – made famous by their early singles on the Josie label, then taken to new heights as they moved to Warner/Reprise in the 70s, and came up with some even more complicated grooves! And while the group's albums are all great, it's definitely their singles that put the money where their funk is – creating these cool, compact, mostly-instrumental modes that pack a hell of a lot of punch in just a short space. The collection features 40 of these massive numbers – titles that include "Joog", "Sassy Lady", "No More Okey", "Trick Bag", "Mister Moon", "Find Yourself", "Chug Chug Chug (parts 1 & 2)", "The Flower", "Smiling", "Do The Dirt", "Africa", "People Say", "Running Fast (long version)", "Disco Is The Thing Today", "Hey Pocky A Way", "Stretch Your Rubber Band", "This Is My Last Affair", "Chicken Strut", "Sophisticated Cissy", "Cissy Strut", "Here Comes The Meter Man", "Ease Back", "Ann", "Dry Spell", "Little Old Money Maker", "Hey Last Minute", and "The World Is A Little Bit Under The Weather Doodle Oop".

Arthur AlexanderArthur Alexander (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, 1972. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
A great little comeback album for southern soul godfather Arthur Alexander! It was recorded during a period when Warner Brothers was really committed to cutting heavy soul albums, with singers like Lorraine Ellison and Paul Kelly, and Alexander sounds great in this setting. The record's got some rootsy southern production by Tommy Cogbill – rootsier, in fact, than some of Arthur's earlier work, but Arthur reprises his famous "Rainbow Road", and other originals with a stronger emotional sensibility that works amazingly well – including "In the Middle of It All", and "Go On Home Girl", plus other cuts by Donnie Fritts, Dennis Linde, and Dan Penn. Some great bonus tracks on this CD version from Omnivore, too – including the never before released "I Don't Want Nobody" and "Simple Song Of Love", plus "Mr John", "You Got Me Knockin'", "Lover Please" and "They'll Do It Every Time".

ApolloniaApollonia (deluxe edition) ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1988. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 18.99
Solo work from Apollonia – working here past her time with both Apollonia 6 and her association with Prince – but still showing an equally strong talent for catchy 80s pop! The music is handled by a host of producers, and most numbers are in a beat-heavy mode that follows on her previous material – funky, but not always in a Prince-ish way – but always tuneful and heavy on the hooks! Titles include "Help Wanted", "Mismatch", "Sychronize", "The Same Dream", "Since I Fell For You", "You Can't Win", and "Your Eyes". This 2CD version features lots of bonus tracks – 14 more selections that include a big number of remixes of the tracks "Mismatch", "The same Dream", and "Since I Fell For You". CD

Brian Auger & Julie TippettsEncore ... LP
Warner, 1978. Near Mint- ... $6.99
An overdue reunion for Brian Auger and Julie Driscoll (now billed as Tippetts) – and a late 70s session that sounds quite a bit different than their mod soul of the 60s! The format here is still somewhat in a soul-based vein – but the sound is much more 70s, and much more "adult" as well – sometimes smooth, sometimes mellow, with Julie singing in a way that's still heartfelt, but not with the clear nod to American soul of her earlier work. Brian's still playing plenty of keyboards, although not getting in as many licks as on his own albums of the decade – yet still with enough space to help transform some of the best tunes. Titles include "Git Up", "Freedom Highway", "Spirit", "Future Pilot", "Rope Ladder To The Moon", "No Time To Live", and "Nothing Will Be As It Was" – a great English remake of a song by Milton Nascimento!

Banda Black RioMaria Fumaca (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner/Polysom (Brazil), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
An excellent album by one of the greatest Brazilian funk bands ever – a wonderful blend of funk, jazz, and soul – and a set that rivals any of the best work coming from the US at the time! These guys are right on the money right from the start – moving through sharp changes with effortless ease, yet never in a way that's too slick or commercial – kind of like that perfect balance that Kool & The Gang hit for just a few records in the mid 70s – but with more of a Brazilian feel overall. Jazzy licks abound – and the keyboards, guitar, and horns are just great – but the set's also got some more regional percussion, too – which really rounds out the record wonderfully. The grooves all have a really universal appeal – essential for any fan of funky sounds – and titles include "Mr Funky Samba", "Junia", "Casa Forte", "Na Baixa Do Sapateiro", "Lelbon Via Vaz Lobo", "Baia", "Maria Fumaca", and "Metalurgia".

CarmelDrum Is Everything ... LP
Warner, 1984. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Overlooked grooviness from the UK scene of the early 80s – and the best album ever from this jazzy pop combo! Carmel existed in the post-punk scene that saw a number of UK groups exploring the jazzier side of the spectrum – using a range of acoustic instruments with a fresher, younger flair that pushes the music way past its jazz roots. The album's got a heavily percussive sound that's really great – often building simple driving rhythms out of acoustic bass and drums – then topping them off by lead vocals from singer Carmel McCort. Titles include the groovers "Drum Is Everything" and "I Thought I Was Going Mad" – plus "The Prayer", "Rockin On Suicide", "More More More", "Rue St Denis", and "Bad Day".

✨✧ Bootsy CollinsUltra Wave ... LP
Warner, 1980. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Bootsy's tightening things up a bit from before, but still sounding plenty darn great – that classic Collins groove in all its P-Funk glory! All the best elements are certainly in place – production by George Clinton and Bootsy, horn arrangements by Fred Wesley, and the slinky soulful sound that made Bootsy's albums some of the most enduring of the P-Funk posse. The album shows a bit of the transformation in soul bass playing that Bootsy helped to foster during the late 70s – but it's still not as "whompin" as some of the many groups that were springing up in his wake – a good thing, to us, because so many of Bootsy's imitators had a way of playing their bass way too much! Titles include "Mug Push", "Is That My Song", "It's A Musical", "Sound Crack", and "Fat Cat". LP, Vinyl record album

Randy CrawfordWindsong ... LP
Warner, 1982. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Randy Crawford at the height of her powers – working here with a sweet jazzy vibe, but a deeper sense of soul that makes her one of the few vocalists to balance so perfectly between both styles! The record has relatively full arrangements – smooth, but never too slick – and Randy's got this way of bursting out throughout, with that sort of youthful freshness that first made us fall in love with her sound when we heard her with The Crusaders. Titles include "Look Who's Lonely Now", "Letter Full Of Tears", "He Reminds Me", "Windsong", "One Hello", "Don't Come Knockin", "We Had A Love So Strong", and "This Night Won't Last Forever".

✨✧ Randy Crawford, Flora Purim, Eddie Harris, et alSharky's Machine ... LP
Warner, 1981. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
One of the coolest soundtracks ever for a Burt Reynolds film – an a hip mix of soul and jazz tracks that's gone onto become a classic over the years! The album's a compilation of sorts, but most of the material was recorded fresh for the film – and the different artists really work together here to forge some great backdrops for the action on the screen! Al Capps handled the larger charts, but most numbers really spotlight an individual artist – and highlights include Randy Crawford singing a new version of "Street Life" – different than the one with The Crusaders – Sarah Vaughan singing "Love Theme From Sharky's Machine", Peggy Lee vocals on "Let's Keep Dancing", and Julie London singing "My Funny Valentine" – as one of the first recordings after many years of retirement. Other great numbers include "Dope Bust" by Flora Purim & Buddy DeFranco, "Sharky's Theme" by Eddie Harris, "Before You" by Sarah Vaughan & Joe Williams, "8 To 5 I Lose" by Joe Williams, and the instrumental cuts "Sexercise" and "High Energy" by Doc Severinsen.

Ian Dury & The BlockheadsDo It Yourself (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Repertoire (Germany), 1979. Used ... $4.99
One of the great ones from Ian Dury – a record that goes way beyond simple quirky rock, and explodes with some wonderful jazzy touches! The sound here is totally great – very much in the sway of Chaz Jankel's musical direction, and filled with great bits on sax, keyboards, and guitar that have a fair bit more warmth and soul than Dury's original records. There's actually less standout hits here – but that's ok, because the record has a really unified feel overall – strongly in the funky arty dancefloor mode that you might expect from some of the Ze Records camp. Titles include "Dance Of The Screamers", "Inbetweenies", "Quiet", "Sink My Boats", "Don't Ask Me", "This Is What We Find", and "Uneasy Sunny Day Hotsy Totsy". (Rock, Soul) CD

✨✧ Lorraine EllisonHeart & Soul ... LP
Warner, 1966. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A tremendous early album from Lorraine Ellison – one that mixes her deep soul roots with some sophisticated jazzy arrangements from Oliver Nelson – a blend that gives the record a wonderfully rich feel, right from the start! The style's somewhere in the territory of Nancy Wilson on Capitol, but a bit more soul-based too – even when Lorraine's singing standards – and production is by uptown soul great Jerry Ragovoy, who brings in subtle rhythmic touches and light strings to create just the right sort of shimmer at just the right moments. Some tunes showcase Ellison's gospel background, some have more of a jazz-based presentation – and titles include "He's My Guy", "That's For Me", "Stay With Me", "Games That Lovers Play", "A Change Is Gonna Come", "Heart & Soul", and "When Love Flies Away".

This great soul diva gets sort of a LA studio treatment with cool arrangements by Nick DeCaro and production by Ted Templeman. The sound has sort of that "spiritual soul for whiteys" feel, but it's still pretty great, and Lorraine Ellison has a voice that's good enough to cut through most of the bullshit. Tracks include "Walk Around Heaven", "No Relief", and "I'll Fly Away". LP, Vinyl record album

Michael FranksBurchfield Nines ... CD
Warner, 1978. Used ... $4.99
Great songs, great vocals, great instrumentation, and another late 70s classic from Michael Franks – one of the few mainstream masters of understatement in his generation! As on all his best albums, the style here is a subtle blend of jazz and pop with a bit of a Brazilian inspiration – kind of a more mainstream take on styles that Bob Dorough and Blossom Dearie had first put forth, with all the sort of hip songwriting that sort of reference might imply. Deodato's at the helm of the arrangements here – keeping things lean and clean, and using key contributions from players like Leon Pendarvis, John Tropea, Steve Gadd, and Bud Shank to flesh out the jazzier side of Franks' sound. Titles include "Wrestle A Live Nude Girl", "In Search Of The Perfect Shampoo", "Vivaldi's Song", "Dear Little Nightingale", "When The Cookie Jar Is Empty", "A Robinsong", and "Meet Me In The Deerpark".

One of the sweetest Funkadelic albums from the middle period, and a good batch of tracks that often gets overlooked in the haze of similar Pedro Bell covers! Don't miss this one, though – because it is a very strong album – key in the shift from more guitar-based funk to more groove-oriented rhythms – and a record that's got more than a few tasty numbers. Includes nice ones like "You Scared The Lovin Outta Me", "Comin Round The Mountain", and "If You Got Funk, You Got Style", plus a live version of "Cosmic Slop" that's totally great!

FunkadelicUncle Jam Wants You ... LP
Warner, 1979. Very Good- Gatefold ... $11.99
One of our favorite Funkadelic albums ever – a tightly grooving classic that never lets up at all! There's a sense of perfection to everything here – one that really gets the group past their tripped-out early years, and firmly into the sublime territory George Clinton hit with Parliament – an amazing sound that's wrapped up perfectly on every single track – grooves that definitely raised the bar for a huge amount of mainstream funk acts who were popping up at the time. Production is never too slick, and there's still lots of tasty guitar licks wrapped up in the mix – and titles include the classics "Freak Of The Week" and "Not Just Knee Deep" – plus "Field Maneuvers", "Holly Wants To Go To California", and "Foot Soldiers".

Larry Graham & Graham Central StationMy Radio Sure Sounds Good To Me ... LP
Warner, 1978. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Larry Graham's opening his sound up a fair bit for this one – bringing in a bit more of a rock influence than before, and letting the guitars fly all over the tunes! The style's one that's almost got a bit of a pre-Prince influence – more tightly poppy in the construction of the soul, and with a good crossover sound that might have earned Graham some of the "radio" in the title. Tracks include the tightly stepping groover "Is It Love", which has a great west coast slow funk approach, the P-Funky "Are You Happy", and the jazzy "Turn It Out", which has some particularly nice bass work. Other tracks include "Pow", "Boogie Witcha Baby", and "Mr Friend". LP, Vinyl record album
