Arthur (Arthur Lee Harper)Dreams & Images (with bonus tracks) ... CD
LHI/Light In The Attic, 1968. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
A great debut from Arthur Lee Harper – an artist who might have been a folk singer a few years before, but who sounds a lot trippier on this rare album for Lee Hazelwood's LHI label! Harper was a minor hanger-on during the LA scene of the 60s, but was championed by Hazlewood – who produced the album himself, with light arrangements from Don Randi – both bigger names who work here in really subtle ways – especially Lee, given how different most of Harper's music is from his own recordings! There's a great undercurrent of sadness – those gentle strings and blue notes that Hazlewood might cut through with his own wry wit – but which Arthur takes as a cue to open up with some of the most heartbreaking sides of his vocals – with a sense of darkness that's almost in the territory of UK acid folk. Titles include "Sunshine Soldier", "Children Once Were You", "Blue Museum", "Living Circa 1920", "Valentine Gray", "Dreams & Images", and "Pandora". Great reissue also features bonus tracks – "1860", "Coming Home", and "Excursion 13". CD

DeathFor The Whole World To See ... CD
Drag City, 1975. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
A pre-punk bit of charged, hard grooving Motor City rock from Death – a lost record that takes a tightly coiled, blazing approach to their influences of garage rock and psychedelia – and a record that's all the better in that it was recorded way back in 1975! To put it bluntly, music didn't really sound like this in '75 – and it would be as easy to label the sound as something like, "mid 70s Detroit African American precursor to Husker Du", etc, but this is a honestly a pretty remarkable album for its time that we don't want to trivialize it with a lazy nutshell description. The group does distill their influences in a way that's reminiscent of some midwestern post punk, but Death is pre-punk, making it a really fascinating record, and simply a blast to crank up in your headphones! Titles include "Keep On Knocking", "Rock-N-Roll Victim", the longer, seemingly Arthur Lee influenced "Let The World Turn" (eventually nailing a fiercer sound the likes of which Love never messed with), "You're A Prisoner", "Freakin Out", "Where Do We Go From Here???" and "Politicians In My Eyes". 7 songs, 27 minutes, and pretty awesome.

LoveDa Capo ... CD
Elektra, 1967. Used ... $6.99
A stunning second album from Love – a set that's still without the fuller orchestrations and baroque touches of Forever Changes – but which already shows the group moving in that direction! The rough, gritty edge of the group is very firmly intact – but they've already got a really fresh way of putting over a song – by complicating the rhythms a bit, going for unusual tonal colors, and furthering the really imaginative songwriting of Arthur Lee. Side one features some incredibly haunting shorter tunes that point the way towards Forever Changes – including the insanely wonderful "She Comes In Colors", the Latin-tinged "Que Vida", and the cuts "Stephanie Knows Who", "The Castle", and "Seven & Seven Is". Side two is a total freak-out – an 18 minute bluesy guitar jam, very over the top stuff – and quite unusual in length for a rock album in 1966! CD

✨✧ LoveReel To Real ... LP
RSO, 1974. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Quite an obscure one by Love – a mid 70s record that actually has quite a bit of soul in the mix! The album almost seems to be going for a Sly Stone approach – expanding the group past Arthur Lee and crew with a host of additional players that include Harvey Mandel, Bobby Lyle, and Joey Deguero. There's still plenty of bluesy and rocky tracks – but there's also a great cover of William DeVaughn's "Be Thankful For What You Got" – done in a chunky mode that really hits a great groove with us (and which is proof that people were covering the tune even back when it was first released!) Other tracks move between soulful rock, Thin Lizzy-esque compressed guitar numbers, and other styles that show a bit more soul than might be expected. Titles include "Time Is Like A River", "Everybody's Gotta Live", "You Said You Would", "Busted Feet", "With A Little Energy", and "Who Are You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the heavy inner sleeve.)

VariousMod World – Adventures In Ska, Soul, Blues & Jazz ... CD
Metro Select (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $11.99
A mod world in many flavors – not just the British rock groups that grew out of the London scene of the 60s, but all the earlier records that influenced their groove! In truth, the approach here is more soul and R&B than anything else – filled with the kind of tight, gritty cuts that crossed over big in the early years of The Rolling Stones and Who – and which have continued to be some of the sharpest grooves that have ever grabbed our ears. Most numbers here are from the late 50s and early 60s, and the 2CD set features 48 tracks that include "A Certan Girl" by Ernie K Doe, "Bring It To Jerome" by Bo Diddley, "It's Gonna Work Out Fine" by Ike & Tina Turner, "Anna" by Arthur Alexander, "If You Live" by Mose Allison, "Set Me Free" by Irma Thomas, "Shakin All Over" by Johnny Kidd & The Pirates, "Night Train Mambo" by Jimmy Forrest, "Tonk Game" by Hank Marr, "Boogie In My Bones" by Laurel Aitkin, "Easy Snapping" by Clue J & His Blues Busters, "I'm A Lover Not A Fighter" by Lazy Lester, "Congo Mombo" by Guitar Gabel & The Musical Kings, "Emmmitt Lee" by Carol Fran, and "Fortune Teller" by Benny Spellman.

VariousTav Falco's Wild & Exotic World Of Musical Obscurities ... CD
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
A weird and wild batch of tunes put together by Memphis legend Tav Falco – some of which are the heavy guitar cuts you'd expect, mixed with others that are surprising pop oddities from the 50s! The track list is nice and big – which leaves plenty of room for unusual choices and free play between the different styles – and Falco wrote the liner notes himself, at a level that really illuminates some of these unusual tunes! Titles include "I'm Doubtful Of Your Love" by Benny Joy, "It's All Your Fault" by Bobby Lee Trammell, "Warrior Sam" by Don Willis, "I'm Gonna Dig Myself A Hole" by Arthur Big Boy Crudup, "She's The One That's Got It" by Allen Page, "Harry Lime Theme" by Anton Karas, "Donauwellen" by Alexander Princes, "Guarda Che Luna" by Fred Buscaglione, "Desde El Alma" by Osvaldo Pugliese, "Jungle Fever" by Charlie Feathers, and "Real Cool Trash" by Tav himself.

Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
One song, swung a number of different ways – in this special 10" album that presents nine different readings of the classic Lecuona song "Taboo"! The tune was not just an exotica standard in the late 50s, but was a Latin classic too – and the versions here nicely skirt between both modes – from tropical instrumentation to more driving rhythms, with even a bit of vocals as well! Includes versions of "Taboo" by Arthur Lyman, Charles Blackwell, The Shangaans, Lecuona Cuban Boys, Caterina Valente, Tito Rivera, Frank Trumbauer, Sylvie Mora, and Cyril Diaz.

✨✧ LoveBlack Beauty (deluxe edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
High Moon, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Arthur Lee and Love's unreleased record from 1973! Black Beauty is a more diverse and soulful set than a lot of what we've heard from Lee's harder rocking 70s years – and it's given a much-deserved top notch release by High Moon Records! It's raw in the best possible sense, with a live feel, as played by a well-oiled band. It's got some blistering rockers, albeit with a heavy dose of bluesy soul in the mix, and includes some surprisingly effective creative twists – especially the Caribbean-inflected "Beep Beep". This is a really cool record that we're thrilled to see getting some belated love and respect – and most importantly, it's worthy of Arthur Lee's legend. Other tracks include "Young & Able (Good & Evil)", "Midnight Sun", "Can't Find It", "Walk Right In", "Skid", "Stay Away", "Lonely Pigs". "See Myself In You" and "Product Of The Times". Very cool package – a book-style cover, with 64 pages of notes and photos – and bonus tracks that include "Thomasine & Bushrod", "Keep On Shinin (live)", "LA Blues", "Every Time I Look Up I'm Down (live)", and even an interveiw!

✨✧ LoveFour Sail ... LP
Elektra, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Much more of a hard rock affair than the group's third LP – kind of a return to the heavy guitars of Da Capo after the baroque beauty of Forever Changes – but a stone winner nonetheless! Arthur Lee's genius is still firmly in place, and although there's a back to basics rock feel on the record, it's still touched by the madness that haunted earlier records – and crackles with a drugged-up intensity that would still make it a hell of an album, even if it was the only one the band ever recorded! Titles include "Robert Montgomery", "I'm With You", "Your Friend & Mine – Neil's Song", "August", "Always See Your Face", "Talking In My Sleep", "Nothing", and "Dream". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label Elektra pressing. Cover has a small cut corner and an unglyed top seam.)

✨✧ VariousCold Cold Heart – Where Country Meets Soul Vol 3 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Southern soul galore – a wonderful range of tracks that are done in that best deep soul mode that borrowed heavily from country music – but also really transformed things to fit their own righteous needs! Make no mistake, the collection is all soul music all the way through – but the songs also echo some of the more heartbreaking themes and local needs you'd find in country music – and also use some isolated elements in the instrumentation and production too! The best way to think of the package is as a collection of southern soul, but one that shows a surprising lack of color barrier when it comes to musical styles – and as always with Ace/Kent, the notes and overall conception of the whole thing is really wonderful. 24 tracks in all – including "Easy Loving" by Bo Kirkland & Ruth Davis, "Big Blue Diamonds" by Little Johnny Taylor, "I Hang My Head & Cry" by Arthur Alexander, "True Love Travels On A Gravel Road" by Percy Sledge, "Touch Your Woman" by Margie Joseph, "Who Will The Next Fool Be" by Bobby Bland, "Stand By Your Man" by The Mirettes, "Till I Get It Right" by Bettye Swann, "Another Man's Woman Another Woman's Man" by Laura Lee, and "Jambalaya" by Ralph Soul Jackson.

James CarrMan Needs A Woman (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Goldwax/P-Vine (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $19.99
Sublime southern soul from one of the greats! James Carr is right up there with the best of the 60s – Otis Redding, Arthur Conley, Joe Tex, and others – but he never made it as big as them because of personal troubles and bad planning on the part of his label and management. Fortunately, his genius has been kept alive by record collectors everywhere – for whom this rare gem is a holy grail! The album features 11 tunes that sum up the best of the south in the 60s – all sung by James with his unbelievably heartbreaking voice. Titles include "The Dark End Of The Street", "You've Got My Mind Messed Up", "A Woman Is A Man's Best Friend", "I'm A Fool For You", "Stronger Than Love", "More Love", and "Sowed Love & Reaped A Heartache". Plus, the CD also features 13 more bonus tracks – including "A Losing Game", "I Can't Turn You Loose", "Let's Face Facts", "Ring Of Fire", "The Lifetime Of A Man", "You Hurt So Good", "Message To Young Lovers", and "Who's Been Warming My Oven".

Sleeping Bag, 1981. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $21.99
An incredible full album from Dinosaur L – the legendary New York dancefloor project of Arthur Russell! The group's a punky, funky, chunky amalgam of bass thumping, guitar riffing, keyboard filling, and sax honking – all very much in the spirit of Russell's best quirky club work of the time, but with the added sound here of a more expanded approach – one that takes the tunes in a whole new territory than the more famous 12" singles! The tracks on the set are simply numbered – "1", "2", "3", and so on – and come across almost as free-jamming instrumentals! Totally great stuff – as experimental as it is funky!

Omnivore, 1981. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
Amazing Art Pepper – work from a 1981 tour of Japan, all of it unreleased – and presented here in a package that sparkles alongside some of his best later albums! Side one is mindblowing – an album-side track that has Art stretching out in so many different ways – voicing these really creative lines on the tune "Make A List", as the rhythm section of George Cables on piano, David Williams on bass, and Carl Burnett on drums make these snapping grooves to keep the whole thing going. Side two features two slightly shorter numbers – "Arthur's Blues" and "Everything Happens To Me" – both wonderful examples of the genius that Pepper was expressing near the end of his life! All tracks previously unreleased – and issued here in a limited vinyl format! LP, Vinyl record album

Two girl singers, one guy – and a sound that's a lot more striking than you might expect! With a name like The Raindrops, you might expect echoey sadness – ala The Fleetwoods – but the approach here is more punched-up and rocking, with a surprisingly soulful undercurrent too! The girls are in the lead on all numbers, but have a way of really hitting a great range in their vocals – which are often pushed by the guy coming in with deep dipping bass parts – all amidst some smashing arrangements from Brooks Arthur, produced by the great Jeff Barry! There's lots of vocal pyrotechnics – almost doo woppy at times – and titles include "Isn't That Love", "The Kind Of Boy You Can't Forget", "I Won't Cry", "What A Guy", "It's So Wonderful", and "I Won't Cry".

Jazzman take on the Cali scene – and the results are every bit as amazing as you might imagine! Like previous Texas, Florida, and Midwest Funk comps on the label, this volume is essential listening all the way through – a massive dig into rare west coast grooves of the late 60s and 1970s – presented with excellent notes on every single track, and more than enough historical detail to put the music in perspective! The whole thing's fully legit, with great mastering on most cuts – and the track list is filled with rare gems we've never seen on any other collections before – a massive funky treasure trove that includes "Turn It Over" by Chucky Thurmon, "Farm Song" by Leon Gardner, "What Goes Around Comes Around (part 1)" by Arthur Monday, "Get It Right" by Rhon Silva, "Funky Fire" by Billy Larkin, "WB" by California Gold Notes, "Curse Upon The World" by Apple & The Three Oranges, "Cold Heat" by Lil Lavair & The Fabulous Jades, "Bones" by Winter, "Smokin Tidbits" by Edwards Generation, "Al's Place" by Enrique Olivarez Y Los Vampiros, "Talking About My Baby" by John Heartsman & Circles, "What's Going On" by Mr Clean & The Soul Inc, and "All Bundled Into One" by Water Color.

✨✧ Eddie Lockjaw DavisGoin To The Meeting (Misty/Goin To The Meeting) ... CD
Prestige, 1960/1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic 60s soul jazz from Eddie Lockjaw Davis – more than an album's worth of materal on a single CD! First up is part of the album Misty – great work from the famous team that featured Eddie Lockjaw Davis on tenor and Shirley Scott on organ – recorded here in the mellow, open-ended setting of Prestige Records' Moodsville label – a perfect setting for the late nite stylings of the pair! There's a slight more groove to this session than some of the other Moodsville date – thanks to the presence of Ray Barretto in the group on congas –a longside the bass of George Duvivier and drums of Arthur Edgehill. CD also adds in the track "From This Moment On". Goin To The Meetin is a great one – and one of the rarest Prestige dates from Eddie Lockjaw Davis! The album features a unique group that includes Horace Parlan on piano – in place of the organ that had graced many of Davis' earlier Prestige records – with added groovy energy from Buddy Catlett on bass, Art Taylor on drums, and Willie Bobo on congas – all players who seem to give Davis an even sharper edge than before – not entirely the modern tones of his pairings with Johnny Griffin, but a bit less sleepy than in the company of a Hammond. The congas really kick things up nicely – and there's an undercurrent of fire that almost recalls some of the best Blue Note dates of this nature from the time. Titles include "Little Cougar", "Yes Yes", "Pass The Hat", "Goin To Meetin", and "Oh Babee". CD

✨✧ Horace TapscottGiant Is Awakened (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Flying Dutchman/International Phonograph, 1969. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An incredible album – one of the few rare early sides cut by pianist Horace Tapscott, a seminal figure in the LA underground of the 60s and 70s! The record is as pure Tapscott as you could ever get – experimental, but not too free; spiritual, but never too sappy; progressively political, but never overwrought – and Tapscott is playing with a strong quintet that includes Black Arthur Blythe on alto, David Bryant and Walter Savage on bass, and Everett Brown on drums. The lineup is great – and Blythe is a real revelation, with a tone and style that's different than some of his later work, but equally soulful – and the use of two basses makes for some wonderful rhythmic elements that really drive the modal energy of the music. The set includes an important early version of "The Dark Tree" – a modal groover that's one of Tapscott's lasting legacies – plus the tunes "Niger's Theme", "For Fats", and "The Giant Is Awakened".
