✨✧ Impact All StarsJava Java Java Java ... LP
Get On Down, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Pivotal early dub! Depending upon whose history of the Jamaican recording industry you subscribe to, this is can be considered by many to be the first dub LP – and whether that's proveable or not, it's certain among the first! History aside, it's a mighty set with some raw early dub style workouts at the hands of Errol Thompson at the renowned 16 North Parade recording studio run by Randy's, with some deft production by Clive Chin. Needing virtually no introduction, the Impact All Stars drop some incredible rhythms, many which will be immediately recognizable as having been versioned from massive numbers for Augustus Pablo, Junior Byles and the Soul Vendors. Titles include "Java Dub", "Cheating Dub", "ET Special", "Ordinary Version Dub", "Hide Away Dub" and "Black Man's Dub". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ FalconsWorld's First Soul Group – The Definitive Falcons (4CD set) ... CD
History Of Soul (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 4 CDs ... $36.99 About May 28, 2021
A treasure trove of work from one of the hippest, coolest vocal groups ever – a Detroit group whose members included later solo stars Wilson Pickett, Eddie Floyd, and Mack Rice – and whose work was a big part in the development of soul music in the 60s! The Falcons started out with more familiar doo wop harmony modes, but held together over the course of a number of excellent recordings to really evolve – having an undeniable impact on the group sounds that Motown would later take to the bank – but maybe doing them with an even more heartfelt, powerful style overall. There have been other Falcons reissues on the market over the years, but this 4CD set is the first one we've seen to cover so much ground – 114 tracks that include their recordings for Lupine and United Artists, plus other tracks for labels like Mercury and Atlantic, where the group only recorded a few cuts – all brought together here in a stunning package that even includes demos, too. The booklet is very big – over 30 pages – and includes full notes on the group and its members, plus discographical information – and lots of photos and label scans too! CD
This title is scheduled for release about Friday, May 28.

Jimmy LondonBridge Over Troubled Waters (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 24.99
A beautiful collection – a full album and rare tracks from sweet-voiced reggae singer Jimmy London, plus a whole bonus disc of other material produced at Randy's too! The core album, Bridge Over Troubled Waters, is wonderful – recorded by a singer who maybe didn't hit the heights of some of his contemporaries, but who has a really universal soul quality to his vocals – a bit falsetto, a bit deeper and sweeter too – working through a mix of songs from American soul, plus a few originals – all with nicely warm production from Vincent Chin, marking that shift from rocksteady into early reggae! Titles include "Shake A Hand", "They Don't Know", "Hanging Up My Heart", "Just My Imagination", "It's Now Or Never", and "Bridge Over Troubled Water". Includes bonus tracks by Jimmy – including "Hip Hip Hooray", "Jamaican Festival 72", and "I'll Never Find Another Mood" – plus 38 more bonus tracks – by Lloyd Parks, Dennis Brown, Freedom Group, Alton Ellis, Ethiopians, Dennis Alcapone, Impact All Stars, Augustus Pablo, Carl Murphy, Max Romeo, and others.

✨✧ VariousDutch Rare Groove – 23 Classic Soul N Funk Songs From The Netherlands (plus bonus remix CD!) ... CD
Supertracks (Netherlands), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Forget all your visions of windmills and wooden shoes, and get set for the sound of Funky Funky Holland! This package is a long-overdue look at the budding Dutch groove scene of the 60s and 70s – a place where jazz players were letting their hair down, rockers were jamming on the drums, and surprising appearances by American and African artists were having a strong impact on the overall sounds coming out of the Netherlands. The tunes here are surprisingly funky – not fake funk or kitsch funk, but really great little tunes with a heavy heavy bottom and lots of strong instrumentation served up in a variety of different ways throughout the set. CD 1 features a whopping 23 tracks from vintage years – most of which were totally fresh to our ears – with titles that include "Funky But Clean" by Vitesse, "Houseparty" by Houseband, "Relax (Before Doin Sex)" by Oscar Harris & The Twinkle Stars, "Soul Party" by The Free, "Dynamite" by Fred Van Zegveld, "Snoopy" by The Playboys, "Let's Go Randstand" by Rogier Van Otterloo, "Passage To Prerov" by Jack Van Poll Tree-oh, "Hunky Dory" by Rob Franken Organization, "Funky Limbo" by Dutch Rhythm Steel & Show Band, "High Winds" by Reality, "De Glazen Stand" by Hans Van Hemert, and "It's An Ill Wind That Blows Nobody Any Good" by Swingin Soul Machine. CD 2 is totally cool too – with remixes of older tunes from the first disc, but often done in a fairly straight way that retains all the classic funky touches, and even adds in a few more bits of instrumentation! Booklet is nice also – with notes on every track, and even images of old records used on the set! CD

✨✧ Charlie ChristianGenius Of The Electric Guitar (4CD set) (amp box edition) ... CD
Columbia, Late 30s/Early 40s. Used 4 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Amazing work from guitarist Charlie Christian – an artist who only recorded for a few short years before an untimely early death – but a player whose work went onto have a huge impact on both the guitar and jazz music in general for years to come! Charlie's playing has a sharp edge that's undeniable – an approach to the guitar that's definitely jazz, yet also finds a place for bluesy inflections too – in styles that no doubt influenced later players like Grant Green or Tal Farlow – and which may have also been an inspiration to electrified bluesmen in the 50s, too. This package brings together a huge amount of Christian's crucial sides for the Columbia label – material that features his raw electric instrument in the company of the Benny Goodman sextet, where Charlie could really shine – and a bit in Benny's larger group too. The package also features raw material that has Christian playing with Count Basie & Lester Young, and the Metronome All Stars – plus detailed notes too. 98 tracks in all! CD
(Out of print first pressing – in the cool amp-styled box! Outer box has some edgewear & is priced accordingly.)
