✨✧ Matt BerryBlue Elephant ... CD
Acid Jazz (UK), 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The music of Matt Berry just keeps getting better and better – to a point where he's almost creating a parallel career to his work on screen – one that's equally great, but which is completely different overall! Berry brought out a wealth of vintage keyboards for the record – pulled from his huge collection – and he mixes those with subtle work on guitar, and guest drums and percussion – all in this swirling blend of sounds that really surpasses the instrumentation of any of his previous work! The set's much more instrumental than vocal – which is maybe part of the charm – and Berry's turned out to be a hell of a musician, as well as a great producer – as he manages to make the record resonate with just the right currents of contemporary psych, but without ever overindulging in that approach. At times, his command of a variety of instruments handled just by himself in the studio seems to rival the work of Sean O'Hagan – and titles include "I Cannot Speak", "Summer Sun", "Safer Passage", "Now Disappear", "Alone", "Blues Inside Me", "Like Stone", "Forget Me", and "Invisible".

✨✧ Jimi HendrixWest Coast Seattle Boy – The Jimi Hendrix Anthology (4CDs/DVD set) ... CD
Sony, 1960s/1970. Used 4CDs/DVD ... Out Of Stock
An excellent anthology of rare Hendrix – featuring previously unreleased recordings of songs we've never heard from Jimi, alternate recordings of staples, incendiary live recordings and tracks from Jimi's early years as a sideman – plus the full length Jimi Hendrix: Voodoo Child documentary on DVD! It's an amazing set tracing Jimi's roots as a session player for soul stars, through his iconic days as a rock guitar deity. Disc 1 of the 4CD set is the only one that features a wealth of tracks that have been previously released – the remaining discs are heavily weighted with unreleased tracks and alternate versions – tracks from the mid 60s featuring Jimi on sessions for the Isley Brothers, Don Covay, Frank Howard & The Commanders, Little Richard and others. Titles include "Testify" and more with the Isley Brothers, "Mercy, Mercy" and "Can't Stay Away" with Don Covay, "I Don't Know What You Got But It's Got Me" with Little Richard, "Instant Groove" with King Curtis, "My Diary" and "Utee" with Rosa Lee Brooks and more. Discs 2 to 4 features the soul shredding Jimi we know and love – unheard alternate recordings of the classics and much much more, plus rare live recordings and covers. Includes versions of "Fire", "Are You Experienced?", "Can You See Me?", and amazing version of Dylan's "Tears Of Rage", plus "Message To Love", "In From The Storm", "Bolero", "All God's Children", "Everlasting First", "Freedom", "Peter Gunn/Catastrophe", "Suddenly November Morning", live versions of "Stone Free", "Wind Cries Mary", "Star Spangled Banner" and much much more. 59 tracks on 4CDs, with a thick book of notes & photos, and the 90 minute DVD featuring the documentary by Bob Smeaton.

✨✧ Bobby KeysBobby Keys ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really cool album from saxophonist Bobby Keys – a record with no vocals at all, just Bobby's solos – but a set that's maybe better tagged as instrumental rock than jazz, given the heavyweight guest musicians in the lineup! Keys blows with an all-star array of talent from the rock scene of the time – including Jack Bruce and Felix Pappalardi on bass, Leslie West and Dave Mason on guitars, Nicky Hopkins on keyboards, and Ringo Starr on drums – plus a bit more guitar from George Harrison, too! Yet what's great about the record is that all these talents put aside their ego and follow Bobby's lead – in a groove that's maybe a bit southern soul, a bit down-home rock – with some definite currents of Memphis and Muscle Shoals in the music. Titles include "Crispy Duck", "Steal From A King", "Bootleg", "Smokefoot", "Altar Rock", "Command Performance", and "Sound & Foam". CD

VariousTen Commandments Of Rock & Roll – Commandment 4 – Show Affection/Come On & Love Me ... CD
Atomicat, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A searing set of tracks that uphold the commandments of rock and roll – but which might also make you break some of the Lord's commandments as well! The tracks here are all raw, gritty, and grooving – the mix of early rockers, R&B, and other late 50s styles we love from these Atomicat collections – presented without much in the way of notes, but packing plenty in the socking set list of 30 tunes on the CD! Titles include "Laurie Anne" by Glen Glenn, "Don't Burn Me Up" by Ray Ellington, "Mama Doll" by Roy Teo, "Liza Jane" by Dale Hawkins, "Steppin Out" by The Flairs, "Yes I'm Gonna Love You" by Sonny Anderson, "Little Jewel" by Tommy Jim Beam & The Four Fifths, "Short Fat Ben" by Phil Barclay & The Sliders, "Pretty Baby What's Your Name" by The Mellows, "I Ain't Givin Up Nothin" by Priscilla Bowman, and "Come On & Love Me" by The Champions.

VariousTen Commandments Of Rock & Roll – Commandment 5 – Form A Partnership ... CD
Atomicat, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
Love's a bursting in this cool little collection – one of the more unusual themes in this really great series, and one that's maybe a bit more upbeat than some of the rest! The tunes here are a mixture of rock, soul, and other postwar styles – and almost all of them deal with the subject of two folks coming together in unity – finding love, and possibly a bit more – as the set makes its way across 30 tracks that come from the farther reaches of the indie label 45 scene at the time! Titles include "Love Fever" by Gene Wyatt, "Oh What A Night For Love" by Roy Tyson, "Please Be My Love" by The Spirals, "Say So" by Mac Curtis, "Look What You Did" by The Staffords, "Just One More Smile" by Vikki Nelson, "Goin Wild" by Jimmy Isle, "Heaven's Plan" by Johnny Devlin, "Be My Girl" by Frankie Brent, "Our Love Will Last" by Francis Zambon & The Naturals, and "What Did She Say" by The Solitaires.

VariousTen Commandments Of Rock & Roll – Commandment 6 – Be Faithful/Let's Jump The Broomstick ... CD
Atomicat, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
Two folks coming together has never sounded so groovy – as the set celebrates the union of man and woman, but in an array of different styles, on different singles – a good deal of which we'd never heard before! This series always has a bit of a theme to each volume – but the main attraction is always the well-chosen cuts from the postwar years, no matter what the topic – a treasure trove of tunes that moves between rock, soul, R&B, and other late 50s/early 60s styles. There's a whopping 30 tracks in all – and titles include "Ma Petit Cherie" by Luis Mariano, "This Is It" by Paris Brothers, "Never Let Me Go" by Mel Albert, "You Excite Me" by Johnny O'Keefe, "Come Marry Me" by Terry Noland, "Little Girl Of Mine" by Cupids, "Want You For My Own" by The Minorbops, "Pretty Little Girl" by The Shells, "The Only One" by Gene Ross, "Love My Baby" by Jesse Allen, "Let's Jump The Broomstick" by Brenda Lee, "Just Me & My Baby" by Chuck Atha, "Love You So" by Earl Gaines, and "Baby That's Alright" by Robert Gill & The Dreamers.

VariousTen Commandments Of Rock & Roll – Commandment 7 – Be Empathic/She's A Flirt ... CD
Atomicat, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A weird little back of rock and rollers – songs that have to do with a woman's infidelity, and a man's need to understand her needs too! If that sounds complicated, just get past the concept and give the CD a spin – because, like other great titles in this series, it's mostly just a batch of rare 45s from the glory days of the 7" single – brought together with a loose idea of a concept that's hardly needed much because the tracks are so great! There's a fair bit of R&B and early soul material on the set – and titles include "It's All Over" by Niki Sullivan, "Don't Lie" by Steve Schickel, "Devil Doll" by Lee Denson, "You Broke My Heart" by The Gleams, "You Never Had It So Good" by The Checkers, "Gonna Be Waitin" by Charlie Rich, "You're Just Wasting Your Time" by Jimmy Bowen, "Mean Woman Blues" by Jerry Lee Lewis, "You Don't Love Me" by Ike Turner, "I'm Your Taboo Man" by Eugene Church, "Feelin Kinda Lonesome" by Chuck Wheeler, "I'm Gonna Leave You" by Walt Benton, "Mabel's Gone" by Johnny Jano, "Don't Leave Me Fanny" by Royal Jokers, and "She's A Flirt" by The Jewels. 30 tracks in all!

VariousTen Commandments Of Rock & Roll – Commandment 8 – Do Not Commit Adultery/The Cheater ... CD
Atomicat, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A sweet little look at cheating in the world of early rock and soul music – served up here in a selection of 30 tracks that go way way past the tear-jerking tunes of the charts, and which also show that infidelity can be a pretty rocking subject as well! As with other volumes in this great series, the theme is even less important than the track selection – as there's a huge amount of material here we'd not heard before, even though we think we know this generation of music pretty darn well. Titles include "Cute Little Girls" by Jackie Wilson, "Screamin & Dyin" by Charles Glass, "Bitter Feelings" by Larry Phillipson, "I Still Love You All" by Vince Riccio, "Baby You've Had It" by Joyce Paul, "The Cheater" by Bobby De Soto, "Hey Sally Mae" by The Fabulous Silver Tones, "Why Did You Leave Me" by Lou Josie & The Spinners, "Oh Baby Please" by Little Mummy, "Who Slammed The Door" by Little Caesar, "That's Tough" by Joe Boot, and "Got A Right To Cry" by Glen Owens.
