ImpressionsRhythm/Star Bright ... 7-inch 7-Inch
Daptone, 2013. New Copy (pic cover)... $6.99
Amazing stuff – a revived version of The Impressions, working here with original trio members Fred Cash and Sam Gooden – alongside arrangements from the legendary Johnny Pate! Pate handled the group's great work in the old days – and producer Binky Griptite really knows how to recreate the magic that made The Impressions so great during their years at ABC – that heartbreaking approach to swinging soul that managed to sound deeply personal while still hitting a groove! Both cuts are great – the sort that will really appeal to any fan of the group's great work in the 60s – so much so, you won't even notice that Curtis Mayfield is missing. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All StarsHoward Rumsey's Lighthouse All Stars Vol 5 (7 inch EP) ... 7-inch 7-Inch
Contemporary, 1953. Very Good (pic cover)... $14.99
Great early work from Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse group – working here at a level that's almost more freewheeling than on some of their later Contemporary albums! The format's still very much in place here – a host of key All Stars who include Milt Bernhart on trombone, Russ Freeman on piano, Jimmy Giuffre and Bob Cooper on tenors, and Shelly Manne on drums – but there's almost a more "live" sort of energy overall – a bit more boppish and open, with each new player leaping freely into the fray. Titles include "Sunset Eyes" and "Comin' Thru The Rye Bread". 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Red vinyl pressing. Cover has a split top seam and some light wear.)

Piero UmilianiI Soliti Ignoti EP ... 7-inch 7-Inch
RCA/Rearward (Italy), 1958. New Copy (pic cover)... $18.99
Very early work from this soundtrack genius – a rare Italian EP that features his classic "Blues For Gassman" – dedicated to Vittorio Gassman, who starred in the film – and featuring great interplay from the tune's two trombonists! Umiliani delivers some great offbeat piano – and part two of the tune features some very moody work on vibes. The EP also features the late night jazz number "Tema D'Amore", which has a slight Latin undercurrent – and the flowing full ensemble "Finale". 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Explosive DynamiksWhole Lotta Loving/I Need You ... 7-inch 7-Inch
Cultures Of Soul, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare, raw and and explosive rare soul from The Explosive Dynamiks – a group hailing from mid 60s Lexington, KY! "Whole Lotta Loving" carries quite a charge – stripped down drums, incredible organ grooves, punchy sax and dynamic vocals. This is an aptly named group! "I Need You" is a moody, slower tune, at least at the start. The organ and vocals lead the way at the beginning, but as it approachs the chorus, the drums and horns come wailing in. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited to 400 copies.)
