Brian Auger & The Trinity & Julie DriscollMod Years 1965 to 1969 – Complete Singles, B-Sides, & Rare Tracks ... CD
Fresh Fruit/Mig (Germany), Mid/Late 60s. Used ... $14.99
The earliest side of Brian Auger's mighty talents – tracks he recorded in the mid and late 60s with vocalist Julie Driscoll and his hard-burning Trinity trio – all a beautiful blend of jazz, soul, and R&B! The work was really revolutionary for the time – a British reworking of American modes started by Ray Charles, James Brown, Jimmy McGriff and others – but not done with any attempt to hide their origins, and instead firmly brought into the mainstream of mod 60s English consciousness! The CD features a whopping 21 tracks in all – both hits and rarities from Auger's key late 60s years – and titles include "Back At The Chicken Shack", "I Am A Lonesome Hobo", "Road To Cairo", "Save Me (parts 1 & 2)", "The In Crowd", "Baby Take Me", "Can Get A Witness", "Holy Smoke", "Baby Baby", and "Oh Baby Don't You Do It".

✨✧ Brian AugerTiger ... CD
Atom (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A wealth of early work from UK Hammond hero Brian Auger – material from a variety of different settings, and which really expands things nicely past his famous albums of the time! As with much Auger material, the dates and session details are a bit hazy, but the quality is superb – and most tracks feature Brian really wailing away on the organ, in a mix of inspirations from jazz and soul, all filtered through a modder late 60s London mode! Some tracks feature Auger vocals, a number of others have Julie Driscoll singing in the lead – and a few tracks feature Brian with Rod Stewart's early group Steampacket, and another features Jimmy Page and Sonny Boy Williamson. 25 tracks in all – and titles include "Baby Come Back To Croydon", "Little Girl How Old Are You", "The Goat", "Foolkiller", "Own Up Lady Astor", "Tiger", "Don't Send Me No Flowers", "Walkin", "Holy Smoke", "Baby Baby Baby", "Don't Do It No More", "I Didn't Want To Have To Do It", and "Shadows Of You".

Julie DriscollJulie Driscoll 1969 ... CD
Polydor/Greyscale (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Julie's come a long way from her years with Brian Auger here – stepping out in a freer sound that marks the shift in the British scene from beat group grooving to jazz-rock jamming. The session features a host of likely suspects – including Keith Tippett, Elton Dean, Brian Godding, Nick Evans, and Chris Spedding – and Julie's vocal style is finely tuned to match the craft of the players on the set. She's a lot more open-ended in her singing, with less of the R&B inspired approaches of the late 60s, and more of the expansive vocalizations that were showing up in the work of other European vocalists of the 70s. Titles include "Leaving It All Behind", "Break-Out", "A New Awakening", "Walk Down", and "I Nearly Forgot – But I Went Back". CD

Martha VelezFiends & Angels/Escape From Babylon ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1969/1976. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
Two classic albums from Martha Velez – back to back in a single set! Fiends & Angels features badass work from Martha Velez – a rock singer at the core, but one with some plenty soulful touches! The album's a UK effort with help from a host of top-shelf talents at the time – but the groove is pretty gritty, and almost has that key rock/funk crossover mode that female singers were hitting in the US – a somewhat colorblind groove that often worked better for a singer like Velez than it did for male vocalists trying for a similar groove. Drums are nice and heavy on some cuts, and the album sports organ from Brian Auger, guitar from Eric Clapton, and heavy bass from Jack Bruce. Titles include "Swamp Man", "I'm Gonna Leave You", "Drive Me Daddy", "Feel So Bad", "Tell Mama", "Very Good Fandango", "A Fool For You", and "Come Here Sweet Man". On Escape From Babylon, Martha Velez gets some heavy help from Bob Marley – who produced the album with a bit of extra help from Lee Perry! The set's a nice mix of Martha's soulfully-styled vocals and Marley's Kingston rhythms – a blend that has similar appeal to some of Serge Gainsbourg's reggae-related projects, but in a slightly different style overall – almost more Marley-like in the end, with Bob pushing Martha into his side of the musical spectrum, instead of the other way around. Backing vocals are by the I-Three – and titles include "Wild Bird", "Money Man", "Happiness", "Get Up Stand Up", "Disco Night", and "Come On In". CD

✨✧ VariousTake What You Need – UK Covers Of Bob Dylan Songs 1964 to 1968 ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The music of Bob Dylan, taken in completely new directions – served up here by a host of 60s British singers who offer up versions of the tunes that are quite different than American covers of the time! There's definitely a fair bit of folk in the mix here, but there's also some freer, trippier styles too – and many of these numbers have very different vocal phrasing than the originals – which keeps the material from being slavish copycat tunes, and instead really shows the way that the influence of Dylan was subtly developed as the 60s moved on, to a point where groups might have drawn a big inspiration from the man's songs, but also then opened the door to lots of new territory. But if you're a fan of Dylan's originals, don't worry – there's also plenty here to love – as the craft of the man himself really shines through, and shows that in the right creative hands, his style was not watered down, but augmented in great ways. As usual with Ace, the package is superb – 22 tracks, complete with detailed notes – on titles that include "Love Minus Zero" by Noel Harrison, "Don't Think Twice It's All Right" by The Fairies, "One Too Many Mornings" by Julie Felix, "Down Along The Cover" by Cliff Aungier, "Tears Of Rage" by Country Fever, "Lay Lady Lay" by Sandie Shaw, "To Ramona" by The Alan Price Set, "Visions Of Johanna" by The Picadilly Line, "Tom Thumb's Blues" by Alex Campbell, "Oxford Town" by Three City Four, "If You Gotta Go Go Now" by Manfred Mann, "It's All Over Now Baby Blue" by The Cops N Robbers, "Absolutely Sweet Marie" by The Factotums, and "I'm A Lonesome Hobo" by Julie Driscoll with Brian Auger & The Trinity.

✨✧ James Taylor QuartetFew Useful Tips About Living Underground ... CD
Acid Jazz (Australia), 1996. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A unique little album from organist James Taylor – proof that he was always changing things up in pursuit of a groove! The set has Taylor moving past some of the warmer, more soulful modes of some of his other 90s work – hitting a vibe that's still plenty darn funky, but which moves his organ more in the direction of Brian Auger than the Johnny Hammond lines he'd hit on his few previous records! The sound is quite majestic at times – Hammond pushing forward alongside guitars, driven by cosmic rhythms that move way past the mod soul of James' early years, pushing into the stratosphere with a great deal of power. Taylor's work on the keys is sublime throughout – possibly even more impressive in this setting than ever before, given the dexterity required to keep up with the rhythms – and the production is wonderful, and really makes the album come across like some of Auger's best work of the early 70s. There's no vocals at all – and titles include "Selectivity", "Summer Fantasy", "Don't Let Money Be Your God", "Serenity", "Theme From Dirty Harry", and "It's Your World". CD
