Elder Charles BeckElder Charles Beck – Your Man Of Faith ... CD
Gospel Friend, Late 30s/1940s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Two decades' of work by Elder Charles Beck – a really important force in the early years of gospel music, and an artist who really helped link the music to more secular styles too! Beck plays both piano and trumpet – the latter quite a surprise, and is used here on early cuts to emphasize the jazzier currents in his music – that brash, bold personality that was maybe a bit different for a spiritual recording in the 30s, and which really helped establish styles of stardom for years to come! Beck's vocals are great, too – he's a hell of a singer with a really nice range and a great ear for a groove – which also links some of the later cuts here to R&B, a bit in the way that Sister Rosetta Tharpe was able to lay the groundwork with her recordings too. The set features 26 tracks in all, almost 80 minutes of music – and titles include "Winehead Willie Put That Bottle Down", "Shouting With Elder Beck", "Didn't It Rain", "Dry Bones", "I Got a Home In That Rock", "Blow Gabriel", "Precious Lord", "Talk On Talkers", "He Knows Just How Much We Can Bear", "Handwriting On The Wall", "Rock & Roll Sermon", and "When".

✨✧ Carolina Chocolate DropsLeaving Eden ... CD
Nonesuch, 2012. Used Gatefold ... $8.99
Possibly the best yet from the Carolina Chocolate Drops! The Chocolate Drops are a group that can (and do) make a banjo and beatbox go together like pork and beans – they're that damn good. On this set, they're working with producer Buddy Miller, who seems a perfect choice. On his own records, Buddy honors folk & country heritage, all the while standing strongly in the contemporary landscape, so we can see why he'd be selected by Chocolate Drops. The group themselves have always been great at bringing out the soul in traditional folk music, and they do that as beautifully as ever here. Includes "Riro's House", "Kerr's Negro Jig", "Country Girl", "Run Mountain", "West End Blues", Po' Black Sheep", "I Truly Understand That You Love Another Man", "No Man's Mama", "Brigg's Shucking Jig/Camptown Hornpipe", "Pretty Bird" and more. (Folk/Country, Blues) CD

Albert CollinsTruckin With Albert Collins ... CD
Coral/MCA, 1969. Used ... $6.99
Great early work from Albert Collins – the kind of mean, lean music that Collins specialized in before his later years of cliche – served up here in a style that's almost more funk than blues overall! The tracks are all instrumentals, with lots of raw guitar and soulful saxophone – coming across with a rootsy feel that's much more in the mode of work on a soul-based indie than you'd expect from the usual slicker sides on Blue Thumb – hardly smooth LA, and instead almost a funky 45 vibe overall! The titles give a good example of the stripped-down sound of the tunes – and they include "Kool Aide", "Thaw Out", "Hot N Cold", "Frosty", "Tremble", and "Icy Blue". CD
