✨✧ Georgie Fame & Alan PriceFame & Price/Price & Fame/Together (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Made In Germany (Germany), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great reunion of two grown-up figures from the bluesier side of the British scene of the 60s – vocalist Georgie Fame and ex-Animal Alan Price, both of whom really sound great together! After leaving The Animals, Price worked strongly in the UK as a solo act – often hitting grooves that were similar to Fame's R&B-drenched material, and making him a great counterpart for an album like this. Fame's style is tighter and warmer than Price's – and the numbers that feature both artists singing together have a great sense of interplay – two very unique voices that are extremely comfortable with each other, and encourage a nice sense of personality and presence. Overall, the album's often a bit more bluesy than Fame's usual work – but in a great way that illustrates that he was always up for a new mode of expression. Titles include "John & Mary", "The Dole Song", "Yellow Man", "Rosetta", "I Can't Take It Much Longer", "Blue Condition", "Ballad Of Billy Joe", and "Home Is Where Your Heart Is". CD

✨✧ VariousHammond Heroes – 60s R&B Organ Grooves ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy ... $19.99 21.98
A great collection of 60s Hammond organ groovers – and from sources you might not normally expect! Given the fame of jazz players on the instrument – like Jimmy Smith and Jimmy McGriff – it's easy to forget how many rock and roll groups were also playing the Hammond in the 60s – clearly inspired by the work of Smith, McGriff, and others – but taking the instrument into a unique pre-fusion world that blended together rock, soul, jazz, and funk! And while much of the groups' work on organ was often overlooked alongside their more famous vocals, this set really corrects that fact by bringing together an all-instrumental lineup – 23 tracks pulled from lost albums and singles from some of the best of the British scene at the time – the cream of the crop of the beat group generation who were so influenced by American soul and jazz! Titles include "Stevie's Groove" by Spender Davis Group, "Jumping Jack Flash" by Wynder K Frog, "Zoom Widge & Wag" by Bobby Graham, "Working Out" by Dave Davani, "Adventures Of A Young Organ" by Ten Years After, "Jive Samba" by Remo Four, "Horses Cellar" by Peddlers, "Zoot's Sermon" by Zoot Money, "Critic's Choice" by Alan Price Set, and "Impressions Of Oliver" by Herd.

✨✧ Walter Bishop JrCoral Keys ... CD
Black Jazz, 1971. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The keys are coral, and the sound is sublime – one of the greatest albums ever from pianist Walter Bishop Jr, and proof that he can really stretch out, given the right setting! The piano here is all acoustic, but there's an almost-electric vibe to the date – long, open tracks that sway and swell with some great spiritual energy – made even more wonderful by work from reedman Harold Vick, who plays tenor, flute, and soprano sax on the record – and makes it one of his best recordings ever! The reedwork alone is worth the price of admission – but the rhythms are also great too – a mix of soulful, modal, and some slight funky bits – handled by Reggie Johnson on bass, and either Idris Muhammad or Alan Benger on drums. Woody Shaw plays trumpet on some cuts, too – and titles include "Coral Keys", "Soul Turn Around", "Freedom Suite", "Track Down", "Waltz For Zweetie", and "Three Loves". CD

✨✧ Steve ReichRadio Rewrite/Electric Counterpoint/Piano Counterpoint ... CD
Nonesuch, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Three different pieces by the great Steve Reich – including one world premiere! The title of the CD refers to the longest work here – "Radio Rewrite", a compelling composition based around themes from the music of Radiohead – which are then really abstracted by Reich, and taken into a sublime instrumental setting! The music is performed by the Alarm Will Sound ensemble, conducted by Alan Piersen – with instrumentation that includes two sets of vibes, two pianos, flute, clarinet, violin, cello, and viola. That piece alone is worth the price of admission – but the set also includes a great new recording of Reich's "Electric Counterpoint" – performed by Johnny Greenwood on electric guitar – and the solo piano "Piano Counterpoint", which is a new variation on Reich's "Six Pianos" from 1973. Definitely a highlight in the Steve Reich catalog – one of the best CDs of his music in years! CD

Dolly Parton & Porter WagonerJust Between You & Me – The Complete Recordings 1967 to 1976 (6CD box set) ... CD
RCA/Bear Family (Germany), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 6CD ... $141.99 176.99
One of the greatest duets in country music – heard here in the complete range of their famous records for RCA! Porter Wagoner was a mighty dark singer on his own in the 60s, but in the company of newcomer Dolly Parton, he really found a warmer side – a way of mixing his sometimes-bleak views on love and life with Parton's undeniably ebullient approach – and her wonderful voice, which really helped balance out his own deeper tones. The work here runs from the early tracks – when Wagoner was the lead act, to mid 70s material – at a time when Parton was very ascendant, and still helped Porter find a way to stay in the spotlight. The beautiful box features all the album, singles, and rare material by the duo – 160 tracks on 6CDs, complete with one of those beautiful Bear Family LP-sized books – almost worth the price of the whole thing, given the data and wonderful images!

Enrico SimonettiGrazie – Nonna ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1975. New Copy ... $16.99
Swirling strings and stepping keyboards from Enrico Simonetti – an Italian soundtrack composer who also also has a great ear for a sexy groove! Mellower melodies are mixed with Barry White-styled soulful strings – in a blend that creates some excellent funky instrumentals at a few key points, which really take the soundtrack way past territory of other Italian sex comedies of the time! These standout funky cuts are worth the price of admission alone – but they really get a strong sense of balance and presence from the gentler keyboard numbers, which pace the record beautifully, but all without losing any sense of soul. CD features 22 tracks in all – with keyboard solos by Simonetti himself! CD

VariousCome Spy With Us – The Secret Agent Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
Seminal spy sounds from the 60s – a treasure trove of spy-themed tunes, and one that features loads of material you might not hear otherwise! The set doesn't feature the big hits from the James Bond films, and instead includes all the great little records that sprung up in the wake of those movies – cool jazz, vocal, and instrumental records that sometimes feature weird reworkings of more famous soundtrack numbers, sometimes lesser-known cuts from b-grade films, and sometimes fresh new spy numbers on their own! The style ranges from groovy guitar numbers to blaring jazzy tracks to slinky steppers that find a very cool balance between suspense and swing. Titles include "Dr Goldfoot & The Bikini Machine" by The Supremes, "The Last Of The Secret Agents" by Nancy Sinatra, "Theme From Danger Man" by Red Price, "A Man Alone" by John Barry, "Deadlier Than The Male" by The Walker Brothers, "Burke's Law" by Wynton Kelly, "We Should've" by Cleo Laine, "Our Man Flint" by Billy Strange, "Theme From Where The Spies Are" by Jimmy Smith, "The Liquidator" by Shirley Bassey, "I Spy" by Roland Shaw, "Come Spy With Me" by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, and "High Wire" by Brian Fahey.

✨✧ Clifford BrownMemorial Album (Blue Note) (75th anniversary edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 1953. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Clifford Brown only recorded a handful of sides for Blue Note – but all of the best ones are included in this excellent album – a full length set that culls together Brown's material from the 10" years, issued as a memorial to his early death in 1956! Side one features Brown with the modernist Gigi Gryce on flute and alto sax – plus Charlie Rouse on tenor, John Lewis on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Art Blakey on drums – a lineup that has a strong sense of soul, balanced with a dose of modernism – on titles that include the classic "Hymn to the Orient" – worth the price of the album alone – plus "Easy Living", "Cherokee", "Wail Bait", and "Minor Mood". Side two features an equally sharp group – with Lou Donaldson on some excellent alto, and the great Elmo Hope on piano – on titles that include "Brownie Speaks", "De Dah", "Cookin", "You Go To My Head", and "Carving The Rock".

✨✧ Eddie NoackGentlemen Prefer Blondes (3CD set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1950s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
Don't know the music of Eddie Noack? Well you certainly will after this wonderfully-complete set – a 3CD package that features over 100 songs in all – almost a Bear Family box set in itself! Eddie Noack is one of those artists who started the 50s in country music, but then picked up a bit of a rockabilly vibe as the decade moved on – using his already great skills on guitar and ear for a tune, and finding a way to electrify his music with some even more romping rhythms! And while artists who made this switch are usually portrayed on either side of the fence, this huge package allows you to hear Noack slowly making the shift over time –starting with great early Texas recordings for the Gold Star and Four Star labels, then moving into singles for Starday, Del Rio, and other labels – all of which really do a great job of balancing country with more rocking modes. The package also comes with a huge book – almost 100 pages – with full notes on Noack's overlooked career, and stunningly complete details on all the sessions too – with songs that include "Price", "Paul Jones", "Invisible Stripes", "Six Feet Down", "Relief Is Just A Swallow Away", "Are You Really Here", "You've Got A Woman", "Fair Today Cold Tomorrow", "Can't Play Hookey", "For You I Weep", "What's The Matter Joe", and lots lots more!

✨✧ BreakwaterBreakwater ... LP
Arista, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A landmark set from a group who only ever gave the world two albums – but who've gone on to have a huge influence over the years! This initial offering from Breakwater is a masterful blend of jazzy fusion and mellower soul – a sound sifted together so perfectly, it really tops the rest of the combo's contemporaries – hitting a careful balance that never gets too cheesy or commercial, and which still manages to glow as strongly into the 21st century as it did when first released back in the day! The sound here is sublime – warm, but never sleepy – jazzy, but never cliched – and mixed in such a way that the vocals and instruments almost get center stage in the spotlight without trying to crowd one another out. Titles include the incredible "Work it Out" – worth the price of the record alone – plus "No Limit", "That's Not What We Came Here For", "Free Yourself", "Do It Till The Fluid Gets Hot", and "Feel Your Way".

✨✧ Michael JacksonBad – 25th Anniversary Edition (3CDs/DVD – includes Live At Wembley) ... CD
Epic, 1987. Used 3CD & DVD ... Out Of Stock
The third great album in the trilogy that includes Off The Wall and Thriller – and a set that still has Michael Jackson running strong at the height of his solo powers! Quincy Jones is still at the helm, and Michael more than proves that he can still come up with a pop tune without going too far over the top – catchy, compelling numbers that played well all over the world of pop – but which still hang onto just a little part of his soul roots too! That balance is a key factor to the success of this set – a record that helped re-ignite interest in Jackson's music, and introduce him to a whole new generation – while still keeping most of the older fans plenty pleased too. Titles include "Just Good Friends", "Smooth Criminal", "Bad", "Another Part Of Me", "Man In The Mirror", and "Speed Demon". Second CD is filled with great bonus material – a huge amount of tracks that include "Free", "Song Groove", "I'm So Blue", "Don't Be Messin Round", "Streetwalker", "Fly Away", "Price Of Fame", "Toto Mi Amor Eres Tu", "Je Ne Vieux Pas La Fin De Nous", "Bad (Afrojack rmx)", "Speed Demon (Nero rmx)", and "Bad Afrojack club)". Also features the CD and DVD of Michael Jackson's massive performance at Wembley Stadium in 1988 – part of the Bad world tour,a nd filled with great performances! CD

✨✧ Pery Ribeiro/Bossa RioInternacional (Gemini V En Mexico/Pery/Bossa Rio/Alegria/Bossa Rio Live In Japan/Pery Ribeiro 1971/Pery Ribeiro 1972) (7CD set) ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 7CD ... Out Of Stock
A really wonderful collection of work from Brazilian singer Pery Ribeiro – and a set that also features some rare material from the Bossa Rio group as well! Pery's a vocalist who was skilled in jazz, and cut some great bossa work in Brazil during the 60s – and this set acts as a great look at this second chapter of his career – when he was reaching out to work in the US as well! As mentioned, the package features albums by Bossa Rio – the really groovy Brazilian vocal group that was somewhere in the territory of Brasil 66, but a bit more balanced with male singers – hence Pery's apperance. The package features the full albums Bossa Rio and Alegria – both of which came out in the US – plus the excellent Bossa Rio Live In Japan, maybe worth the price of the package alone! One other album is the rare Gemini V En Mexico – which has Ribeiro singing live, alongside the great Leny Andrade, with backing by Bossa Tres – and the set also features Pery from 1968, a wonderful album with a deeper feel than usual! And the last two albums in the package are self-titled sets by Pery – a bit more mellow, but still nice. CD
