✨✧ Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger, & The TrinityOpen (aka Jools) ... LP
Atco, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $29.99
Great stuff – one of the amazing early albums from the team of Julie Driscoll and Brian Auger – kind of a next-generation to the Brit beat group sound of the mid 60s – one that moves beyond simple R&B modes, to bring in more sophisticated soul and jazz touches! Driscoll's vocals are amazing – some of the boldest belted out in the British scene at the time – and Auger's Hammond work really cooks throughout – at a level that easily makes him one of the best UK organists to hit the scene, amidst some very heady company in the 60s. There's a few bluesy moments, but our favorites are the funky ones – especially the group's reading of "Season Of The Witch", which is tremendous. Other cuts include "In & Out", "Black Cat", "Goodbye Jungle Telegraph", and "Break It Up". (Vocalists, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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". (Vocalists, Rock) CD

✨✧ VariousTake What You Need – UK Covers Of Bob Dylan Songs 1964 to 1968 ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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.

✨✧ Martha VelezFiends & Angels/Escape From Babylon ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1969/1976. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
