Ada MooreAda Moore with Tal Farlow, John LaPorta, & Oscar Pettiford ... LP
Debut, 1954. Near Mint- ... $11.99
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.)

Jimmy Rushing/Ada Moore/Buck ClaytonCat Meets Chick ... LP
Columbia, 1956. Good+ ... $3.99
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 some wear, aging and tape along the seams.)

MadamSensuous Black Woman ... LP
Kent, 1972. Very Good+ ... $9.99
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 MadamSensuous Black Man/Sensuous Black Woman ... LP
Kent, Early 70s. Very Good ... $9.99
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.

✨✧ Francois De RoubaixBoulevard Du Rhum ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... About March 15, 2016
A groovy French soundtrack – composed by Francois DeRoubaix for this obscure film set in the 20s, starring Brigitte Bardot and Lino Ventura. Despite the 20s setting of the film, though, many of the tracks have a great groovy 60s sound – a bit like some of the best of A&M records from the time, with weird touches of periodisms amidst more modern production, and DeRoubaix's often strange approach to instrumentation. Titles include "La Posada", "Chant Des Rumrunners", "Sur Le Boulevard Du Rhum", "Boulevard Express", "Au Cinema Muet", and "Ben Moore Hotel". 18 tracks in all – with great notes in English and French!

✨✧ VariousReturn Of Funk Soul Sisters Presented by SuperFunk – Super Rare, Slinky & Funky Female Funk ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... About April 1, 2016
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.

✨✧ 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".

✨✧ Phil Moore & The Afro Latin SoultetAfro Brazil Oba! ... LP
Tower, Mid 60s. Used (reissue)... Temporarily 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

✨✧ Rudy Ray MooreRudy Ray Moore Zodiac Album ... LP
Comedian International, Mid 70s. Used ... 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! LP, Vinyl record album
(With the removable sticker mostly peeled. Cover has some wear and splitting.)

✨✧ Rudy Ray Moore & The Soul Rebellion OrchestraDolemite ... LP
Generation International, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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
