Magic SamBlack Magic ... CD
Delmark, 1968. Used ... $8.99
Rough-edged blues from the west side of Chicago – a stone classic from the mighty Magic Sam – a player who was taken from us all too soon! On the west side, they mix plenty of soul in with their blues – and you can definitely hear that on this stone smoker – a record that has roots in the same scene as Syl Johnson, whose modes definitely creep into the groove at times! Sam's combo here is mighty nice – with Eddie Shaw on tenor, Lafayette Leake on piano, and Mighty Joe Young on guitar – and titles include "Stop You're Hurting Me", "Easy Baby", "What Have I Done Wrong", "It's All Your Fault", "You Belong To Me", "You Don't Love Me Baby", and "San Jose".

Toussaint McCallNothing Takes The Place Of You ... CD
Ronn/P-Vine (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
An amazing collection of work from Toussaint McCall – a set that finally gives this classic soul singer his due! McCall stands as one of the best southern soul singers of his time – and one who's often painfully overshadowed by the better known singers on Atlantic and the larger labels. His hit "Nothing Takes The Place Of You" is well known as a soul classic – but Toussaint recorded a number of other tracks during the 60s, nearly all of them as sublime as that hit! This 24 track package is oddly one of the first times that this work has been properly collected together – and the compilation is a much-needed look at Toussaint's incredible soul talents. Trust us, you'll be playing this one again and again – right next to your Dave Godin Deep Soul volumes, or your James Carr reissues! Titles include "Nothing Takes The Place of You", "One Table Away", "What Part Do I Play", "That's Life", "Shimmy", "The Toussaint Shuffle", "I'm Gonna Make Me A Woman", "I'll Do It For You", "The Title Escapes Me", "Step By Step", and "All For A Love Like You".

Robert Randolph & The Family BandLive At The Wetlands ... CD
Dare, 2002. Used ... $1.99
Pretty unique work from Robert Randolph – one of the most soulful pedal steel players you'll ever hear! Randolph's working here in a live setting before a very enthusiastic crowd – playing pedal steel and singing with a deeply soulful approach – running through styles that range from funk to soul to blues and touches of 70s rock. Titles include "Tears Of Joy", "I Don't Know What You Come To Do", "Ted's Jam", "The March", and "Pressing My Way". (Neo Soul, Blues) CD

VariousFoxy R&B – Richard Stamz Chicago Blues ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Foxy R&B, and a fair bit of soul as well – wonderful work from the previously-untapped Paso and Foxy record labels – headed up by legendary Chicago DJ Richard Stamz! Stamz was a key early force in African-American broadcasting in the Windy City – an important DJ not just in blues and soul, but also a TV figure as well – one who really helped get a heck of a lot of great music started in the early days of soul! This package features some real killers by artists who do a great job of skirting the rough line between blues and soul in Chicago in the 60s – some of whom would record more famously on other labels, like One-Der-Ful, but who really sound great here. The package was put together by the folks who've researched and recounted Stamz colorful life in print – and has a great array of rare music, plus stories of the DJ as well. Titles include "Say You Love Me" by Harold Burrage, "The Buzzard" by Freddie Robinson, "What's The Matter With You Sam" by The Ideals, "Just One More Time" by Loretta Branch, "You Gonna Cry" by Flora D, "I'm Trying" by Lee Shot Williams, "Gittin Along" by Willie Williams with the Howlin Wolf Band, "Goin Home" by Mary Johnson, "Please Love Me" by Harold Burrage, "Romeo Joe (part 1)" by Robert & The Rockin Ravens, and "Garlen's Mambo" by Ze Majestics.

VariousFunky Blues 1960s to 1970s – Modern/Kent Blues Treasures ... CD
Modern/Kent/P-Vine (Japan), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $18.99
The title gets it right – and the grooves do too – nothing but funky blues from the 60s and 70s, the kind of gritty, hard-edged tunes that are way better than the sort of blues you might be used to hearing at frat boy bars! All of the work here was originally issued on west coast indie powerhouse Kent/Modern – and the package does a good job of pulling out some under-recognized gems from the funkier side of their output at the time – tracks that often have some very tight drums, rumbling basslines, and scratchy guitar alongside the more soul-oriented vocals. Titles include "Let Your Hair Down" and "You Make Me Cry" by Arthur K Adams; "Kidney Stew" and "Two Ton Mama" by Newman Family; "Funky Way" by Jimmy Bee; "Women's Liberation" by TV Mama Jean; "What You See Is What You're Gonna Get" by Brenda George; "The Turning Point" by Rudy Ray Moore; "Night Time" and "Go To Train" by Smokey Wilson; "Tramp" by Foxfire; and "Mellow Together", "Funky Broadway", "The Thing", and "Hobo Meeting" by Lowell Fulsom.

VariousOriginal Blues/Risque Blues – It Ain't The Meat – Original King Recordings ... CD
King/Gusto, Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... $4.99
Raw, raunchy sounds – all pulled together from a time before soul and rock even existed! Most of the work here is from the classic catalog of King Records – a killer imprint in the postwar R&B market, and a company who wasn't afraid to do what it took to make a knockout record! In the case of these tracks, the singers often hit some fairly suggestive material – often hidden in early 50s innuendo, but barely so – with a vibe that's often nastier than even the most hardcore rockabilly sounds to come! The music here has its roots in blues, but is inflected with plenty of jazz, and the presence of the singers often point the way towards soul music – especially the James Brown crowd that would later rise at the same label. Titles on this volume include "It Ain't The Meat" by The Swallows, "Salty Dog" by The Lamplighters, "Ride Daddy Ride" by Orvill Fats Noel, "The Walkin Blues" by Fluffy Hunter, "I Knew He Would" by The Sharps & Flats, "Wasn't That Good" by Wynonie Harris, "Shake That Thing" by Wynonie Harris, and "Roll Roll Pretty Baby" by The Swallows.

VariousShattered Dreams – Funky Blues 1967 to 1978 ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Funky blues treasures from the late 60s & early 70s – a once-scoffed at movement from a period when aging blues stars and purist blues fans alike were hesitant to accept their beloved style modernized in a funky fashion – but the best of it stands up today as some of the coolest and most unique funk, blues and soul of the era! BGP does a terrific job here of digging a bit deeper then some the more famous blues funk fusions, with numbers by Slim Green, Al King, Icewater Slim, Little Milton, The Johnny Otis Show, Al King, Big Daddy Rucker, Buddy Guy and more. 21 tracks in all: "Shake 'Em Up" by Slim Green, "It Took A Long Time" by Finis Tasby, "I'm Not The Best" by Buddy Guy, "Tough Competition" by Ray Agee, "Eli's Pork Chop" by Little Sonny, "Playing On Me" by Albert King, "Good Feeling" by Freddy Robinson, "Welcome Home" by Lowell Fulson, "Comin' At Ya Baby" by The Johnny Otis Show, "That's What Love Will Make You Do" by Little Milton and more. (Funky Compilations, Blues) CD
