Colpix/4 Men With Beards, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 23.99
An important early live show for Nina Simone – a move from the world of small nightclubs (as mentioned in the title of her first record), to the classy Town Hall venue – working in front of an audience filled with left-leaning listeners who were the perfect crowd to get the unique bag ...

Nina SimonePastel Blues ... CD
Verve, 1965. Used ... $6.99
Wonderful stuff from Nina Simone – working here still with one foot in the jazzier style of early days, but with haunting elements of the later progressive style to come! The "pastel" in the title shouldn't imply any sort of softness on Nina's part, because if anything, she's ... (Vocalists, Soul) read more CD

RCA, 1967. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
One of Nina's first for RCA – a mixture of jazz and soul tunes handled with some classy arrangements by Sammy Lowe, most of which feature nice electric bass work at the bottom by Gene Taylor!

Tamla, 1971. Very Good ... $6.99
A classic early bit of soul from the Ashford & Simpson team – even though the record is billed under the name of Valerie Simpson as a solo act!

United Artists, 1978. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Nice second album by this band who's better known for their proto disco LP on Buddah. This one's got less of a disco feel, but it still has a sound that's mostly uptempo funk, with some good choppy grooves, and a few mellower soul cuts. Tracks include "Earl & Pearl", "Realize ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Skah ShahSkah Shah No 1 ... CD
Marc (Haiti), Mid 70s. Used ... $14.99
An obscure set of grooves from Haiti – featuring a guitar-heavy style that reminds us of African Highlife, but which is touched with other bits of Carribeana. Georges Chancy leads the group, and all cuts feature vocals, plus some nice scatter-shot drums and jangly guitar playing. Titles ... (Global Grooves, Soul) read more CD

A tremendously great album on Stax – even if it's by a non-Memphis group, and one of the few rock albums issued by the label! Two Quid Deal was the 3rd album by UK jazz rockers Skin Alley – but its license to Stax made pretty good sense at the time, given how many tracks here have a ...

Sly Stone's definitely back on the right track here – returning to the heights of his earlier powers in this late 70s comeback album for Warner Brothers! The record's got a lot of touches of the old Sly funky sound, but it's done in a slightly tighter style too – a bit more polish than ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sly Stone's looking like a one-man band on the cover, but the album's definitely got the full-on collaborative vibe of his early records with the Family Stone! The main man himself has plenty of charm, and still has that wonderful ear for a sharp-tinged funky cut – but he's also working in ... read more CD

The earliest roots of the Sly Stone sound in California – but music that's very different than his heady sounds from the San Francisco scene at the end of the 60s!
