✨✧ Albert CollinsCompleat Albert Collins ... LP
Imperial, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Funky blues from Albert – recorded in Nashville with a nice raw groove! The tracks are about half vocal and half instrumental – but the real standout star of the album is Albert's guitar, which is played here with a raw raspy quality that cuts through just about any sort of arrangement. Titles include "Bitsey", "69 Underpass Roadside Inn", "Coon N Collards", "Sweet N Sour", "Swamp Sauce", and "Junkey Monkey". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner, otherwise looks great!)

✨✧ Albert CollinsTrash Talkin' ... LP
Imperial, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
We're not normally fans of blues – especially much of the revivalist blues of the late 60s – but Collins' records for Imperial have a nice funky touch that holds up well over the years. This set's not really funky in the same sense as many of Collins' contemporaries in the soul scene of the time – but it's got some great funky elements, especially in the drums and guitar, which is always razor-sharp. 12 numbers in all: "Jawing", "Trash Talkin", "Harris County Line-Up", "Conversation With Collins", "Grapeland Gossip", "Chatterbox", "Medley", "Lip Service", "Talking Slim Blues", "Back Yard Back Talk", "Tongue Lashing" and "And Then It Started Raining".

VariousLand Of 1000 Dances – Special Soul & Funk Edition ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... About August 1, 2016
A massive collection of soulful groovers – tunes that packed the dancefloors in the days before disco, and which definitely show the harder edge of the soul spectrum! The set starts off with mid-60s tunes based around a simple rhythm and a quirky dance gimmick – then branches out into some hard-hitting sock-soul numbers from later in the decade, and eventually slides into some sweet 70s funk! The overview of tunes is a great one, with some tasty familiar numbers, some great obscurities, and a few tracks that have been massively hard to find on CD! Titles include "The Greasy Frog" by Jeb Stuart, "The Matador" by Major Lance, "The Dip" by The Whispers, "Jerk It" by The Gypsies, "The Chicken" by Jackie Lee, "The Meditation" by TNT Band, "Broadway Freeze (parts 1 & 2)" by Harvey Scales & The Seven Sounds, "Walkin The Duck" by The Triumphs, "Temptation Walk" by The Entertainers IV, "Moon Walk (parts 1 & 2)" by Joe Simon, "Bumpin & Stompin" by Garland Green, "Bus Stop" by Fatback Band, and "Do The Sissy" by Albert Collins. 26 tracks in all!

✨✧ Four TopsIndestructible ... CD
Arista, 1988. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Indestructible sounds from The Four Tops – a set that still has the legendary quartet going strong! The production and arrangements definitely show a late 80s Arista Records touch, with a fair bit of keyboards and electric rhythms – but the core sound of the group is still very firmly in place – those amazing vocals of Levi Stubbs, Duk Fakir, Lawrence Payton, and Obie Benson – soaring out at a level that still tops the singing chops of all the younger groups of the time. Production is by a fair number of big names – including Narada Michael Walden, Jerry Knight, and Albert Hammond – as well as Phil Collins and Huey Lewis, who are clearly going for more of a crossover appeal for the group. Yet even the slick spots can't dim the strength of the vocals – on titles that include "Change Of Heart", "I'm Only Wounded", "Loco In Acapulco", "When You Dance", "Let's Jam", and "If Ever A Love There Was".
