Herb Alpert & Hugh MasekelaHerb Alpert & Hugh Masekela ... CD
A&M/Herb Alpert, 1978. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
Two top trumpet talents – coming together beautifully on this groovy late 70s set! Both Herb Alpert and Hugh Masekela had a big rise to fame in the 60s – Herb, for his Tijuana Brass albums on A&M – and Hugh, for the way that he brought South African jazz currents to the American soul mainstream! Given that both had strong presence on the Cali scene in their time, the pairing here is a great one – and works well with some larger jazz backings that color things out in a mix of soul, fusion, funk, and some slight South African touches. Other players on the set include Lee Ritenour and Arthur Adams on guitars, Paulinho Da Costa on percussion, James Gadson on bass, and Hotep Cecil Bernard on piano – and titles include "Skokiaan", "Moonza", "Lobo", "African Summer", "Ring Bell", and "Happy Hanna".

DeathFor The Whole World To See ... LP
Drag City, 1975. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
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 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.

Lost & FoundLost & Found (aka Everybody's Here) ... LP
International Artists, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A brilliant set on the legendary International Artists label – a very Love-like record that's filled with colorful tunes – from Houston's Lost & Find, who fit in beautifully with other Texas psyche pioneers of the mid-to-late 60s! Both the vocals and the overall timing of the tunes clearly draw strong inspiration from Love's first few Elektra albums – but that's not a problem for us, because we love that stuff, and really appreciate Lost & Found's take on Arthur Lee's inspiration – one that pushes it a bit into the trippier Texas style psyche and others from the International Artists Roster. Titles include "Everybody's Here", "Forever Lasting Plastic Words","Zig Zag Blues", "I'm So Hip To Pain", "I Realize", "2 Stroke Blues", "Let Me Be" and "Living Eye". LP, Vinyl record album

LoveDa Capo ... LP
Elektra, 1967. Near Mint- ... $16.99
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! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousFlip Doo Wop Vol 1 ... CD
Flip/Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
A treasure trove of Los Angeles vocal group material from the earliest days of soul – all pulled together from the vaults of the sweet indie Flip Records, and collected here in a mix of rare singles and some previously unissued tracks! Flip's approach is decidedly hip – served up with some of that west coast style that would add in a key extra instrumental element to the vocal group harmonies, but with more than enough dynamic vocal interplay right up front in the mix – all the kind of energy you'd get from more stripped-down productions from the east, with some genius moments that show that LA was no slouch when it came to matching the group harmonies back in New York and Philly! Titles on this first volume include "Stay Mine" by The Falcons, "I'll Have Memories Of You" by Arthur Lee Maye & Group, "Send Me Flowers" by The Six Teens, "Death Of An Angel" by Donald Woods & The Vel-Aires, "You Yakity Yak Too Much" by The Flippers, "Don't Worry About A Thing" by The Sweet Teens, "You Are The Only One" by Candy Rivers & The Flippers, "White Port & Lemon Juice" by The Bel-Aires, and "Baby We Two" by The Rhythm Masters.

VariousTwisted Wheel 2 – Brazennose & Whitworth Street 1963 to 1971 ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $18.99
A second look at the kinds of sounds that made the Twisted Wheel one of the most important dancefloors on the UK Northern Soul scene of the 60s – and certainly one of the best when it came to really changing up the groove! The sounds here include the upbeat soul you'd expect, but also includes bits from other realms, too – often echoing a deep soul approach that comes through in the lyrics, no matter what the setting! There's a number of cuts here that we haven't seen reissued on vinyl, mixed with some other key classics – and titles include "Arabia" by The Delcos, "I've Got A Claim On You" by Betty Everett, "Anna" by Arthur Alexander, "Ain't No Soul" by Ronnie Milsap, "I Dig Your Act" by The O'Jays, "The Duck" by Jackie Lee, "That's Enough" by Roscoe Robinson, "These Chains Of Love" by Chuck Jackson, "Dance With Me" by The Blendells, "The 81" by Candy & The Kisses, "Number One Guy" by The Ferris Wheel, and "Gonna Fix You Good" by The Alan Bown Set.

✨✧ Planet ComicsPlanet Comics Collected Works Volume 14 – Issues 67 to 73 – Summer 1952 to Winter 1953 (hardcover) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), 1952/1953. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The continuing genius of Planet Comics – one of the first-ever comics devoted entirely to science fiction stories – still going strong here in the early 50s! Unlike some of its contemporaries during the stretch, Planet never got too creepy or too exploitative – but did use the growing comic market to really hone its craft, and perfect the kind of longer-form stories with recurring characters that made the magazine a real hit with audiences young and old. Female characters are as strong as the guys – and the art throughout is wonderful – with top-shelf pencils from artists who include Murphy Anderson, Lee Elias, Charles Sultan, Lily Renee, Arthur Peddy, Bill Benulis, Rudy Palais, and other unsung talents. The 280 page book is heavy, hardcover, and really well done – featuring seven full issues, all in color, with cover images and inside ads too. Book

✨✧ LoveOut There ... CD
Blue Thumb/Big Beat (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Lesser-known work by Love – recorded immediately after the group's seminal records on Elektra, with a slightly different sound! The CD brings together tracks from the albums Out Here and False Start – both of which feature the band moving back to basics, working in a harder rocking style that has less of the baroque arrangements of albums like Da Capo or Forever Changes. Arthur Lee's still as incredible as ever – with that slightly mad vocal approach that gives even the most mundane tunes a real edge – and the guitar work's supported by an even heavier style of rhythm, one that almost gives a few tracks some nice funky moments. CD features 14 tracks in all, including "Gimi A Little Break", "Nice To Be", "Listen To My Song", "I'll Pray For You", "Love Is Coming", "Signed DC", "Gather Round", and "Love Is More Than Words Or Better Late Than Never".

✨✧ VariousDave Godin's Deep Soul Treasures Vol 4 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning set of deep soul numbers – all hand-picked by one of the greatest authorities on the music ever! Dave Godin knows this stuff better than just about anyone else – and this 4th volume in his deep soul series may well be the best so far! Godin's experience with the music runs back to the 60s, so it's no surprise that his collection of tunes for the set moves way past the obvious hits – far into the realm of indie soul to come up with some real killers that mix together under-heard gems with a few well-placed classics. The groove is rootsy all the way through – a nice range of soul styles from the time, all annotated by Godin in the CD's excellent set of notes. 25 tracks in all – with titles that include "It's So Hard To Break A Habit" by The Webs, "You Got Me Diggin You" by Roosevelt Matthews, "I Don't Care Anymore" by Doris Duke, "I Made It Over" by Jimmy Robins, "Don't Ever Leave Me" by Bob & Earl, "I'm A Lonely Stranger" by Arthur Conley, "I Love You" by Jackie Lee, "Tracks of My Tears" by The Miracles, "Wrong Too Long" by Matilda Jones, "I Need You" by Chuck Edwards, "Is It Me You Really Love" by Black Velvet, and "I Believe She Will" by Eddie & Ernie.

✨✧ VariousModern Vocal Groups Vol 1 ... CD
Modern/Ace (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A huge discovery in vocal group material from the 50s – served up in this excellent series of tracks from the vaults of LA's Modern Records label! Most folks associate the early vocal group sounds with the east coast or Chicago scenes of the postwar years – but there was also plenty of harmonizing and doo wop on the west coast, too – although sometimes not as well-exposed as the bigger hits back east! This series really corrects that mistake – and serves up a stunning wealth of work from the early Cali scene – tracks recorded by the Modern Records label, a company with a rich legacy in jump blues, R&B, and other hip postwar styles – all of which they brought to play on their recordings in a vocal group mode. The Modern approach often has some wonderful arrangements that further empower the vocals – a harder swing that gives the singers the same push as some of the label's solo acts – and as usual for Ace Records, this collection moves way past the hits, to include some unreleased tracks, and rare singles from the Modern, RPM, Crown, and Flair labels. Volume 1 features 24 tracks in all – with titles that include "Native Girl" by The Native Boys, "Love Only You" by The Meadowlarks, "Sacroilliac Swing" by The Drifters, "I Wanna Love" by Arthur Lee Maye & The Crowns, "You Better Stop" by The Original Jubalaires, "Be Cool My Heart" by Oscar McLollie & His Honey Jumpers, "Let Me Be Your Man" by The Five Hearts, "Forever" by Marvin Phillips & The Barons, and "Tell Me You Love Me" by The Flairs.

Sleeping Bag/Get On Down, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 14.98
A spacey disco classic from the great Arthur Russell – one of his important singles for the dancefloor from the New York scene! "Go Bang" is a wonderful tune – with a jaunty vocal refrain that's laid over some off-kilter keyboard rhythms infused with bass – and the single features the important original release mixed by Francois K, and a never-heard mix by Walter Gibbons! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Sleeping Bag, 1981. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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!

Lars GullinLars Gullin Vol 6 – Sideman 1949 to 1952 ... CD
Dragon (Sweden), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
Although known best for his seminal work as a leader – over a range of key recordings from the 50s and 60s – Swedish reedman Lars Gullin also lent his talents to many other artists as an important sideman, as you'll hear in this much-needed look at an overlooked side of his work! Like other releases in this series, there's a huge amount of material here – over 25 tracks, running for nearly 80 minutes – featuring Gullin performances from 1949 through 1952 – lending his talents on baritone sax (and sometimes as arranger) to jazz musicians who include James Moody, Zoot Sims, Arthur Osterwalls, Stan Getz, and Putte Wickman – plus performances in all-star groups who include Leonard Feather's Swinging Swedes, Svensk Jazz 50, and Jazzkritikerorkestern 1951 – and even a few cuts with singers who include Alice Babs, Brita Borg, and Charles Judah. The collection is as comprehensive as you might guess – and titles include "Swedish Pastry", "The Man I Love", "Moody's Bounce", "Flamingo", "Two Fathers", "Who Sleeps", "The Girl With The Net", "Moon Over Miami", "Dancing In The Dark", "First Walk", and "Be Bop Knopp".

Casablanca, 1979. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A later bit of Philly disco – recorded at Sigma Sound studios with really soaring production from Tom Moulton – and some surprising help on a number of tracks from a young Arthur Baker! The style here has that Instant Funk sort of groove – a bit more bass at the bottom than earlier Philly disco, and a real penchant for instrumental breakdowns in the Salsoul mode – stepping out nicely on a set of longer tracks that really bubble over with energy! Titles include "Put Yourself In My Place", "Small Circle Of Friends", "I Don't Need No Music", and "Am I Dreaming". LP, Vinyl record album

The record's perhaps not as focused as some of the best efforts on BYG/Actuel – but it does have a strong degree of energy, and shows that the spirit that was pervading the sessions stretched past the big names on the label.

Oracle/Creole Stream (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Early work from Jimmy Helms – an American soul singer, but one who recorded more famously later on in the UK – heard here on his full length debut! The set was put together at a time when Jimmy was getting some exposure on the Merv Griffin Show (the cover shot is from one appearance) – and the style here is kind of a hip blend of jazz and soul, wrapped around a nice mix of familiar tunes and even better unusual ones! Helms later had fame on the stage, and he's definitely got an expressive style of singing – a mature mode that's different than crossover soul singers of the time, and which has echoes of hip cats like Walter Jackson and Arthur Prysock in both his phrasing, and some of the arrangements he gets on the tunes. Titles include "I Was A Boy When You Needed A Man", "Like A Young Bird", "Listen", "Iliane", "Air Of Confusion", "Until It's Time For You To Go", "Light My Fire", and "Hey Jude". CD

BBC/SSJ (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $22.99
A fantastic lost slice of work from guitarist Wes Montgomery – rare British broadcasting recordings done in the year of 1965 – during a European tour that gave us some other material by Wes over the years! This collection features the guitar genius in two different performances – one in March of 1965, with an American group that features Harold Mabern on piano, Arthur Harper on bass, and Jimmy Lovelace on drums – the second from two months later, with a British backing combo that includes the great Stan Tracey on piano, plus Rick Laird on bass and Jackie Dougan on drums. The Mabern material is great – with a familiar feel to other live tour tracks from that stretch – and the Tracey sides maybe have a surprising sort of edge, and even some of the chromes that would show up more during the late Verve and CTI years. Titles include "Full House", "Four On Six", "Twisted Blues", "Here's That Rainy Day", "Yesterdays", and "Jingles". CD

Rare Earth/Big Pink (Japan), 1971. New Copy Gatefold ... $23.99
An excellent batch of funky rock from The Sunday Funnies – a group we only know from this album, but who have the distinction of being produced by the great Andrew Oldham! The set's got a feel that's in keeping with the sound of Motown's Rare Earth label – well-crafted and jamming work, done in a style that's a bit more soulful than the average hard rock record of the time – nice currents of funk in the rhythms, and a fuzzy groove that has that label's legacy of easily stepping over different modes, but in a very cohesive way. The songwriting's especially nice – and the group have a really full-on Detroit sound in their guitars – and the album's dedicated to an unusual batch of heroes who include Arthur C Clarke, Kahil Gibran, Herman Hesse, Pieter Bruegel, and Johnny Carson. Titles include "The Axe", "Child Of Mine", "Let The Son Shine In", "Tell Me", "You & I", and "Walk Down The Path Of Freedom". CD

A sublime pop psych classic from Tommy James & The Shondells – a record that's quite different than some of the janglier work the group was issuing a few years before – and a perfect example of the way that just a few slight studio tricks can really transform a record! The tunes are all short and focused, but produced with lots of cool reverb, echo, and fuzzy touches on the sides – never overindulgent, and still plenty tuneful – but with so many weird little edges that they come through with a sound that's still pretty darn fresh after all these years – even if you think you know these guys from their hits. Titles include "Kathleen McArthur", "Do Something To Me", "I Am A Tangerine", "Smokey Roads", and "Breakaway" – plus the classic hits "Sugar On Sunday", "Crystal Blue Persuasion", and "Crimson & Clover".
