Jimmy Rushing/Ada Moore/Buck ClaytonCat Meets Chick ... LP
Columbia, 1956. Very Good ... $5.99
An interesting set – kind of a parody of the Girl Meets Boy album that had been issued a year or two before on Columbia – done with vocals by Jimmy and Ada Moore, and recorded as a "story in jazz" about love, love found, and love lost. Jimmy and Ada sing both separately and together, Buck Clayton plays a few instrumental sides – and titles include "The Blues", "Cool Breeze Woman", "Ain't She Sweet", "If I Could Be With You", and "Pretty Little Baby". LP, Vinyl record album
(6 eye pressing, with deep groove. Cover has wear, a mostly split spine & top seam, with tape residue along all seams.)

Francois De Roubaix/Brigitte BardotBoulevard Du Rhum (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
A groovy French soundtrack from the great Francois De Roubaix – composed for a film set in the 20s, starring Brigitte Bardot and Lino Ventura – but done in a range of compelling styles, with lots of the odd instrumental twists and turns we love in Francois' music for film! There's only scant echoes of the period in the music – the occasional strummed acoustic guitar – and many of the elements have a warmer, more modern glow – and include A&M Records-like marimba or snakey trumpet lines, other flowing jazzy French bits, and even some playful themes that verge on whimsy. The record includes a few vocal numbers – "Sur Le Boulevard Du Rhum" by Brigitte Bardot, "Chanson De Ronald" by Guy Marchand, and "Plaisir D'Amour" by Bardot and Marchand – as well as Joe Turner singing "Mac Allister's Wedding Song". All other numbers are instrumental – and include "La Posada", "Chant Des Rumrunners", "Sur Le Boulevard Du Rhum", "Boulevard Express", "Au Cinema Muet", and "Ben Moore Hotel". CD features three bonus tracks too. CD

✨✧ Roy BuddWild Geese ... CD
A&M/Masters Film Music (Canada), Mid 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Tightly-strung score for this forgotten war flick starring Roger Moore, Richard Burton, and Richard Harris. Budd does a nice job with the orchestra on this one, and most of the themes have a snappy militaristic style, in the vein of The Magnificent Seven or The Great Escape. Not as many jazzy bits as usual, but a nice dramatic score, and still up to Budd's usual high standards. Joan Armatrading sings vocals on the "Flight Of The Wild Geese", but skip that, and stick to tracks like "Rafer's Theme", "Reunion", "Wild Gese Theme", and "Flight To Africa". CD

Rudy Ray Moore & The Soul Rebellion OrchestraDolemite ... LP
Generation International, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Quite possibly THE mother of all funky soundtracks – the legendary score to Rudy Ray Moore's classic first Dolemite film! The record's been referenced for years, and all the hype is totally right – because the whole thing's overflowing with funky tracks both vocal and instrumental – cut with a sound that's as gritty and badass as the movie itself! The Soul Rebellion Orchestra provided the wicked instrumental grooves for the set – and vocalists include Mary Love and Ben Taylor – and the pacing of the whole record almost makes it come across like a mini-movie in sound! You'll find enough samples on here to cut a lifetime's worth of hip hop LPs, and the funky tracks will have you coming back to the record again and again! Tracks include "The Queen", "The Rumble", "Mayor Get Away", "The Jive Jungle", "Creeper", and "Ghetto Expressions". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Rudy Ray MooreRudy Ray Moore Zodiac Album ... CD
Comedian International/Dolemite, Mid 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best of the Rudy Ray Moore raunchy party albums from the 70s, and one that must be seen to be believed! The cover has "Rudy" standing nude with "The Madam" – but the man on the front really isn't Rudy, as you can plainly see that his face has been pasted over the image of another male model! Around this image, different Zodiac signs are interpreted by images of a couple making love in different positions! But if that's not enough, the album actually has a great long track called "The Sensuous Black Man Meets The Sensuous Black Woman", plus two shorter "Trips Through The Signs Of The Zodiac" by Rudy – one for men, and one for women!

✨✧ Rudy Ray MooreRudy Ray Moore – His Filthy Best ... CD
Dolemite, 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Raunchy madness from the legendary Rudy Ray Moore – a collection of some of his best moments from the 70s – pulled from a host of super-rare party records! Moore's become the stuff of legend in recent years – finally getting some mainstream due for the revolutionary way he blended music, comedy, and some very powerful language – into a rich catalog of recordings that circulated strongly at a grassroots level in the pre-hip hop years. Countless folks cite Rudy as an influence – not just for the way he could tell it like it is (or was), but also for his ability to weave together strands of African-American history and experience into his own badass sound – pushing consciousness further, while still referencing his roots. The track list here is great – a good distillation of Rudy's classic comedy albums for Kent – on tracks that include "Dolemite", "Pimpin Sam", "Campaign Speech", "3 Boyfriends", "The Streaker", "How Grewsome", "Signifying Monkey", "The Sighs Of Love", and "Petey Wheatstraw".

✨✧ Phil Moore & The Afro Latin SoultetAfro Brazil Oba! ... LP
Tower, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A very unique little record – and one with a sublime blend of Latin, soul, and vocal styles! The record's a fair bit more sophisticated than most other efforts like this from the 60s – thanks to a strong batch of talents that includes Gil Fuller on arrangements, Phil Moore III on piano, Leni Groves on vocals – and a host of small combo players who include Joe Pass on guitar, Hadley Caliman on tenor and flute, and Francisco Aquabella on percussion! There's a warmly soulful west coast jazz sound here that's perhaps the strongest aspect of the record – a style that steps off nicely from the hipper side of LA, but throws in a few Latin influences – making for a really great sound that's totally fresh, and which really makes this record stand out from the pack! Titles include a great version of "What Is Wrong With Groovin", plus "Midnight Blue", "Batucada", "I Want Your Kiss", "Lavender Lady", and "The 8th Day". LP, Vinyl record album

Nat King Cole as a leader and a sideman – incredible material from 1936-1946 – featuring the King Cole Trio, side work with Eddie Cole's Solid Swingers, Dexter Gordon, The Keynoters and The Lester Young Trio! There's a number of great tunes here with Nat singing, but also a whole bunch of recordings that shine a light on his impeccable work as a group piano player of the finest caliber, working as Nat King Cole and under some funny pseudonyms while he was recording hits for Capitol! Packaged stunningly, even by Hip-O Select Standards – essentially housing the CDs in a hardcover book of 31-pages with an essay by David Ritz, 7 3/8" square package with detailed session notes, and beautifully reproduced art work from original 78s and 10-inch LPs!

VariousReturn Of Funk Soul Sisters Presented by SuperFunk – Super Rare, Slinky & Funky Female Funk ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 LPs ... $16.99 22.99
Female funk galore – and one of the greatest all-girl compilations we've ever heard! The set's a brilliant follow-up to the first Funk Soul Sisters set on BGP – but we've gotta say that we like it even better than the first, and really appreciate the wide range of unusual tunes collected on the set! There's a depth here that goes way past the obvious – a love of bad-rapping funky female soul that digs deeper, and comes up with some key gems that explode cliches and really expand our love of the music. Titles include both rare album and single tracks pulled from a variety of American indies of the late 60s and early 70s – and although many are by familiar artists, they offer up a side of their talents you really wouldn't expect! Titles include "Easily Persuaded" by Martha & The Vandellas, "Family Tree" by Little Rose Little, "Who Told You" by Jackie Moore, "That's How I Feel" by The Sisters Of Righteous, "Ain't No Love Lost" by Patti Jo, "Love Connection" by Annette Snell, "Gotta Get Away" by Harolyn Montgomery, "Just A Mistake" by The Ebonettes, "Do You Really Want To Rescue Me (part 1)" by Elsie Mae, "It's My Thing" by Betty Moorer, "Speed Ticket" by Inez & Charlie Foxx, "Get On Up & Do It Baby" by Marie Adams, and "Jesse Joe" by Jean Knight.

✨✧ William ParkerMeditation/Resurrection ... CD
Aum Fidelity, 2017. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Bassist William Parker in two different settings, but both served up here with a very unified feel! The material was all recorded on a single day, with a core trio that features Parker on bass, Hamid Drake on drums, and Rob Brown on alto – a group whose energy you can really feel building up right from the core, especially in the interplay between Parker and Drake, a pair who only seem to get better together over the years! The first half features trumpeter Jalalu Kalvert Nelson – whose soaring sense of pride really adds a new dimension to the music – this righteous quality that opens up new channels of beauty when he steps in. The second half features pianist Cooper-Moore, instead of the trumpeter – and his tones are maybe more introspective, and produce a similar shift in the music, especially in the way Parker shapes his notes. This change really deepens our understanding of the trio on both sides – and shows just how adaptive they are to each other. Titles include "Horace Silver Part 2", "Things Falling Apart", "Give Me Back My Drum", "Rodney's Resurrection", "Urban Disruption", and "Orange Winter Flower". CD
