Zoot Money's Big Roll BandBig Time Operators – The Singles 1964 to 1966 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia/Wah Wah (Spain), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Slammin soul from Zoot Money – one of the hottest acts going on the mid 60s London scene, and an artist whose work was awash in styles borrowed from American R&B and soul jazz! Zoot's work of the time was a key force in opening the door to more soul-based sounds in the UK – and although others always credit the Rolling Stones with bringing blues to Britain, we've always been much more partial to the jazz-based styles of Zoot Money and others of the beat group generation – whose work helped transform sounds tremendously, and allow a shift towards more progressive fusions in years to come! The vibe on most of these tracks borrows heavily from James Brown, Ray Charles, and other bigger American soul acts – but there's also plenty of smoking Hammond and deeply-blown tenor on most tracks too, furthering the jazzier side of Money's sound. The set features all of Zoot's important singles, both a and b-sides – and titles incude "The Uncle Willy", "Good", "Bring It On Home To Me", "Let's Run For Cover", "Self Discipline", "Zoot's Sermon", "Mound Moves", "Star Of The Show", "Jump Back", "It Should've Been Me", "Please Stay", and "Zoot's Suit". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500 copies – in a great cover that has that classic UK 60s back-flap style, with a bonus insert of notes and photos too!)

Blossom DearieThat's Just The Way I Want To Be (Japanese pressing) ... LP
Fontana/Universal (Japan), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... About October 21, 2015
An amazing record – one that we'd never part with! The session is one of Blossom Dearie's greatest records ever – a sublime set of tunes recorded in London, at the end of the 60s, with larger arrangements than usual, and a feel that's almost psychedelic. Backings were arranged and conducted by Brian Gascoigne – with a host of Brit underground jazz players that include Harold McNair, Ian Carr, Kenny Wheeler, and Ray Warleigh. More incredibly than that, though, is the set of tunes that Blossom wrote and chose for the record – tunes that have really dark edges, playful turns, and which go past the simplicity of some of her other work. The whole thing's truly amazing – really – and is a record that we've been coming back to again and again and again over the years! Titles include "I Know The Moon", "Long Daddy Green", "Hey John", "That's Just The Way I Want To Be", "Dusty Springfield", "Will There Really Be A Morning", and "I Like London In The Rain".
