ImpressionsRhythm/Star Bright ... 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
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.)

Sly & The Family StoneThank You (Fallettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)/Everybody Is A Star ... 7-inch
Epic, Late 60s. Very Good ... $2.99
A classic! "Thank You" was without a doubt Sly Stone's most far-reaching funk track – as it was covered in a million versions, by a huge amount of other jazz, soul, and funk groups. This is still one of the best versions, though – and on the flipside you get the wonderful "Everybody Is A Star". 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Memory Lane pressing. Labels have a bit of stuck-on paper.)

Piero UmilianiI Soliti Ignoti EP ... 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

✨✧ Runt (Todd Rundgren)We Gotta Get You A Woman/Baby Let's Swing – Last Thing You Said – Don't Tie My Hands ... 7-inch
Ampex, Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite possibly THE greatest single ever from Todd Rundgren – a perfect distillation of his glorious contribution to pop! "We Gotta Get You A Woman" starts with a really beautiful blue piano hook – then slides into a tightly snapping, very catchy lead vocal that's right up there with "Rikki Don't Lose That Number" for pure 70s pop brilliance! The flipside contains an incredible 3 song medley that ties together these amazing little tunes in a style that Todd could almost do effortlessly – but never as well as on this little triptych! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo. Label has a small sticker.)

✨✧ Samson & DelilahWill You Be Ready?/Woman (Red Cap pressing) ... 7-inch
Red Cap, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Killer break! The beginning of "Will You Be Ready?" starts with this amazing hard drum break, mixed with honking sax, in a way that would make a sampler weep! And if that's not enough, the track then slides into some beautiful psychedelic soul vocals, with a stunning sound, and deep raw harmonies. "Woman" is pretty darn great, too, and has some sweet organ lines behind the tight vocals of the frontline! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Sly & The Family StoneIf You Want Me To Stay/Babies Makin Babies ... 7-inch
Epic, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great single from Sly! "Babies Makin Babies" starts out with a tight funky break, then moves into a stoner funk groove with a very messed up sound, and some great organ riffs. "If You Want Me" has that great synth drum sound that Sly pioneered, and great soul vocals over the top with a catchy catchy hook! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(In an Epic sleeve. Labels have light stains.)
