✨✧ Ada MooreAda Moore with Tal Farlow, John LaPorta, & Oscar Pettiford ... LP
Debut, 1954. Used ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful early session on Charles Mingus' Debut Records label – one that features singer Ada Moore – a thin-voiced, yet soulful songstress with an edgey sort of tone! The album's got lots of nice rough edges that take it away from the cliched vocal album of the time – including searingly modern solos from LaPorta, slightly muted guitar work from Farlow, and an overall recording style that's very "roomy" – with almost a loft-like feel to the set. Titles include "Something To Live For", "Strange Fascination", "Devil Is A Woman", and "Lass From The Low Country". LP, Vinyl record album
(OJC limited reissue pressing.)

MadamSensuous Black Woman ... LP
Kent, 1972. Very Good+ ... $13.99
One of two albums produced by Rudy Ray Moore – the other being The Sensuous Black Man – which define the art of making love from a gender-based perspective. Like Rudy's Sensuous Black Man, The Madam's version features one side of "instructional" dialogue – very XXX-rated, in bitchy mode that verbally orders a man to make love to a woman properly. Side two features "Rap Session", kind of a Q&A session in which The Madam lays down a bit more knowledge about sex over some bluesy music. There's plenty of bits on here that have been sampled over the years – and the record was a big one in the early mixes of the Chicago house scene. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a mostly split top seam, a split spine, and splitting on the bottom seam.)

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 Moore/The MadamSensuous Black Man/Sensuous Black Woman ... LP
Kent, Early 70s. Very Good ... $14.99
Nice split LP that combines a side apeice from the classic Sensuous Black Man and Woman LPs! Both sides feature nice nice funky music – and very very explicit descriptions of "the proper way to make love to a lady". The music is slammin', and Rudy Ray Moore's at his worst as he describes different positions, techniques, and approaches to the art of love. LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has a center split on the spine.)

✨✧ VariousSouth Texas Rhythm & Soul Revue Vol 2 – From The Vaults Of Crazy Cajun Records ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
The great state of Texas turned out plenty of soul records in the 60s – and some of the best of them came from the hands of Huey P Meux – the legendary talent who's responsible for all the work on this set! Huey was also known as the Crazy Cajun – also the name of a label on which some of these cuts appeared – and his work shares a bit of the deeper, swampier sounds you might expect from Louisiana soul of the time, mixed with the rich bluesy currents that Texas had been turning out since the postwar years! The result is some stellar music that never fully got its due back in the day – tracks that maybe had a bit of regional fame, but never hit as big as sounds from Memphis or Muscle Shoals, which makes this collection such a great discovery – rare tracks by Texas artists, and other talents who were pulled down near the Houston scene for these recordings – all presented in a set of well-chosen tracks with some mighty nice notes. Titles include "Too Good To Be True" by The Traits, "Half A Man" by Charles Berry, "The Bad Times Make The Good Times" by Warren Storm, "T'Ain't It The Truth" by Jean Knight, "Strange Love" by Eugene Gamble, "All About Love" by Big Sam, "I'm Losing You" by Henry Moore, "Total Disaster" by Lee Maye, "At Your Wedding" by Jackie Paine, "You're Losing Me" by Jo Jo Benson, "Spunky Onions" by Johnny Adams, and "The Pleasures Of My Woman" by Rocky Gil & The Bishops.

✨✧ Lucky MillinderLet It Roll Again – 1949 to 1955 ... CD
King/Rev-Ola (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from Lucky Millinder – one of the few swing-era artists who made a strong transition to R&B, heard here on a huge batch of classic singles for the King label! At some level, there's a jazz-based sound here that stretches back to the Kansas City groove of the 30s – but at another, there's a leaner, tighter, more hard-swinging style overall – especially on the numbers that feature vocals, sung by Annisteen Allen, Wynonie Harris, Big John Greer, Melvin Moore, and many others. The instrumentalists are great too – and include Joe Wilder, Henry Glover, Ike Quebec, Sam Taylor, Seldon Powell,a nd others – all of whom really pack a lot of punch into the sound of Lucky's band! CD features 29 tracks in all – with titles that include "Ow", "Heavy Sugar", "Lord Knows I Tried", "Adam Come & Get Your Rib", "I'll Never Be Free", "D Natural Blues", "Teardrops From My Eyes", "Oh Babe", "The Jumpin Jack", "Chew Tobacco Rag", "Backslider's Ball", and "Moanin The Blues".
