✨✧ Ralph McTellAll Things Change – The Transatlantic Anthology 1967 to 1970 ... CD
Transatlantic/Cherry Tree (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99
Beautiful work from Ralph McTell – a British singer with roots in folk music, but an artist who was already finding his own territory by the time of these albums! Unlike other British folkies of the time, who seemed to be heading towards more ancient territory, and were often trying to sound even more old school in their phrasing – McTell was always trying out something new, and moving more towards some of the singer/songwriter territory that a few key American contemporaries were trying at the time. The set brings together three full albums by Ralph for the Transatlantic label – Eight Frames A Second, Spiral Staircase, and My Side Of Your Window – plus the Ralph McTell Revisited album, which features reworked material, as well as some bonus tracks too – all a fantastic summation of Ralph's early years – a time when he was maybe at his best. 51 tracks in all – with titles that include "Nanna's Song", "The Fairground", "Last Train & Ride", "Michael In The Garden", "Clown", "Girl On A Bicycle", "Father Forgive Them", "Are You Receiving Me", "Bright & Beautiful Things", "Daddy's Here", "Terminus", "Suzanne", "Blues In More Than 12 Bars", and "Kew Gardens".

✨✧ StrayAll In Your Mind – The Transatlantic Years 1970 to 1974 (Stray/Suicide/Saturday Morning Pictures/Mudanzas/Move It/bonus tracks) (4CD set) ... CD
Esoteric (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 4CD ... $32.99
The mighty lost legacy of Stray – an overlooked UK hard rock outfit of the early 70s – presented here in a package that includes all their five albums, plus a full CD of rare material too! These guys have a riffing dexterity that should have won them guitar hero praise of years to come – and drummer Ritchie Cole is a monster on the kit – right up there with John Bonham or Keith Moon for the way he can both be complex yet keep things moving completely forward – providing a fantastic foil for the soaring vocals of Steve Gadd (not to be confused with the American jazz drummer of the same name.) There's a tightness here that matches the intensity of Thin Lizzy at their early 70s best – and clearly these guys can handle their instruments enough to really stretch out in a proggy way if they want, but instead choose wisely to keep things close to the chest. CD set features five full albums, plus 13 more bonus tracks from singles, and a few demos too – plus a huge set of notes on the band and their music. CD

✨✧ VariousRhythm On The Radio – Oval Records Singles 1974 to 1987 ... CD
Oval/Ace (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most unusual labels on the British scene at the end of the 70s – a small indie that first began by issuing sounds from the US, but which then went onto have a strong role in the growing new wave and Brit pop scene of the time – before moving into world music in their later years! The mix of cuts here is quite surprising at first, but soon falls into a cohesive groove – especially when Oval Records hit that point when they were becoming the farm team for acts that would break later on bigger labels – including a few entries here that might come as a real surprise! The package is very well done – the usual Ace Records sensitivity to the history behind the music – and given that Oval Records titles never got much circulation on our side of the Atlantic, the whole thing's a real revelation to American listeners like us. Titles include "Lucky Number" by Lene Lovich, "One Heart One Song" by Pete Fowler, "The Lull" by Reluctant Stereotypes, "Tell That Girl To Shut Up" by Holly & The Italians, "Rhythm On The Radio" by ABC, "Mumbo Jumbo" by Woodhead Monroe, "Don't Depend On Me" by Direct Drive, "We'll Be Together" by Bosca, "Highlife Time" by George Darko, "The Jack That House Built" by Jack N Chill, "C'Est La Danse" by African Connexion, "Brickyard Blues" by Helen Shapiro, "I'm On A Rocket" by Harry Kakoulli, "English Guns" by Airstrip 1, "Don't Be Mistaken" by First Light, and "Hippy Street" by Local Heroes SW9.

✨✧ VariousWhere Southern Soul Began Vol 3 – 1957-1963 – History Of Soul ... CD
History Of Soul (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
An excellent look at the sounds that gave birth to southern soul – that blend of blues, R&B, gospel, and other righteous sounds that were brewing below the Mason-Dixon line at the end of the 50s – which later rose to tremendous fame on labels like Stax and Atlantic! The tracks here are mostly from before a time when those labels focused on the music, though – and include a huge number of obscure singles we'd never heard before – all packaged with lavish notes on the music and full color images – clearly showing a lot more care to the presentation than you'd usually get for a collection of this nature. There's a whopping 55 titles in the set – and tracks include "The Wash" by The Varios, "Baby Come & Get It" by The Adorables, "Velma" by Roland Dice, "Everybody's Talking" by Bob & Peggy, "I'll Have To Let You Go" by Sally Stanley, "Goodbye My Love" by Oscar Perry, "I'm Cally My Baby" by Gene Vell, "Baby It's True Love" by Roscoe Shelton, "Why Not Give Me A Chance" by Jackie Verdell, "Keep On Trying" by Guitar Ray, "Bad Boy" by Fontella Bass, "Wait A Minute" by Barbara Stephens, and "Please Wait" by Charles James.

Mose AllisonI'm Not Talkin – The Song Stylings Of Mose Allison 1957 to 1972 ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Mose Allison is one of the coolest, grooviest singers ever to grace the face of jazz – a voice you'll recognize instantly, even if you don't know his name – and an artist who had a huge influence on the sound of the London scene in the 60s! Mose was mod before mod was a thing – and was able to mix his sharp jazz skills on piano with a gutbuckety style of singing that drew heavily from the sound of New Orleans – as did his sense of rhythm – but always with an approach that was more upbeat and jazzy overall, with a hip sophistication that few other artists could hope to touch! And while Mose recorded excellent sounds for decades, this collection focuses in on some of the most important work he ever cut – music done for Prestige, Columbia, and Atlantic Records from the late 50s through the early 70s – served up in the most amazing tribute to Allison we've ever seen. 24 tracks in all – with cuts that include "Foolkiller", "I'm Not Talking", "If You Only Knew", "The Seventh Son", "I'm Smashed", "Wild Man On The Loose", "Back On The Corner", "I Love The Life I Live", "Jus Like Livin", "If You Live", "V8 Ford Blues", "Parchman Farm", "Baby Please Don't Go", "Western Man", "Your Molecular Structure", "Hellow There Universe", and "Swingin Machine".

Roy AyersComin' Home Baby – Herbie Mann Presents The Roy Ayers Quartet ... LP
Columbia (Japan), Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $59.99
Damn! This is an amazing rare album from Roy Ayers, and one that, we believe, was only ever issued in Japan! The whole session is made up of 4 tracks, and they were recorded during the time when Roy was playing with Herbie Mann, and recording on Atlantic. This session was cut Direct-To-Disc, and the record plays at 45 rpm for extra high fidelity! The quartet includes Sonny Sharrock on guitar, and Miroslav Vitous on bass. Cuts include "Comin' Home Baby", "Man & A Woman", and "Scarborough Fair". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mid 70s Denon pressing, with obi and insert.)

Roy AyersLive At The Montreux Jazz Festival (Japanese pressing – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $19.99
A beautiful live set from 1972 – and a very unique album from Roy Ayers' Polydor years! The album originally was never issued in the US – clearly done for a hipper European market at the time – and it's got more of a jazz vibe than some of Roy's other work on Polydor, with sounds that echo back to his earlier years on Atlantic! Yet despite the jazz setting, there's still a nice dose of funk in the mix too – a bit like the vibe that Ayers hit on his Virgo Red album, but leaner too – given that the group's only a quartet. The smaller lineup really allows Roy a lot of space to solo strongly on vibes – and he's also joined by the great Harry Whitaker on electric piano, always a treat in a setting like this. The album features an extended early version of "Move To Groove", plus "In A Silent Way", "Your Cup Of Tea", and "Daddy Bug". Plus, the CD includes some great bonus cuts – like "Thoughts", "He Gives Us All His Love", and "Sketches in Red, Yellow, Brown, Black, and White". CD

Darrell BanksDarrell Banks Is Here! ... CD
Atco/Sepia Tone, 1967. Used ... $6.99
Amazing – simply amazing – and one of the best full albums of 60s soul you could ever hope to buy! Darrell Banks was one of the many lost talents laboring in Detroit during the 60s – and he was part of the city's hip underground soul scene that included monster talents like Steve Mancha and JJ Barnes, all of whom fall into the "should have been famous" category, but who have fortunately been honored for years by soul fans worldwide. This album's one of two that Banks ever issued under his own name – and it's a collection of singles that were put together by Revilot, but issued in full LP format by Atlantic. Banks mixes together raw deep soul vocals with some hipper uptown production – and the result is soul that's about as classic as "classic" could be! Every single cut's a winner, written by some of the finest talents in soul music at the time – and tracks include "Here Come The Tears", "Our Love (Is In The Pocket)", "I'm Gonna Hang My Head & Cry", "Baby What'cha Got For Me", and Banks' semi-hit, "Open The Door To Your Heart".

Barbara & The BrownsCan't Find Happiness – The Sounds Of Memphis Recordings ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
The first-ever full length collection of work by Memphis singer Barbara Brown – a vocalist who appeared both as a solo act, and with her sisters – on a variety of singles for labels like Cadet, Atlantic, Tower, and MGM in the late 60s and early 70s! Barbara's got a deep, rich voice that's clearly schooled in gospel, but pointed towards more secular ends – an approach that's very much in keeping with the best late 60s wave of soul from Atlantic Records, and which is carried off here with a sharpness and precision that's simply mindblowing! Why Brown never scored bigger is a real mystery to us, because these tunes come off like the cream of the crop of southern soul at the end of the 60s – not just obscurities for obscurity sake, but some of the highest level of soul a female soul singer could hope for at the time! The 20 track package features great notes on Brown's career, and on the tunes – a decent portion of which are previously unissued, too. Titles include "Man Around The House", "Can't Find No Happiness", "Pity A Fool", "Big Party", "Watch Dog", "You Don't Love Me", "Plenty Of Room", "I'm Gonna Start A War", "Things Have Gone To Pieces", "Great Big Thing", "Play Thing", and "If I Can't Run To You I'll Crawl".

Sue BarkerSue Barker (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Crest/Playback (Australia), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
A hip Australian jazz singer from the 70s – and one who isn't afraid of picking up a bit of soul, too – as she mixes songs from Stax Records, Motown, and Atlantic alongside more familiar standards in the set! Sue clearly got the chance to record in a scene that was less concerned with labels than might have been the case up here in the US – and she gets hip small combo backing that match all the right inflections in her vocals – jazzy when needed, more southern soul at other points – often with more of a 60s acoustic mode than the sorts of more-electric instrumentation other singers of the time were using. Arrangements are by Grahame Conlon, the guitarist in the group – and titles include "What's Going On", "Lover Man", "Think", "6345789", "How Sweet It Is", "Love To The People", "You Stepped Out Of A Dream", and "Groovin". CD adds in three bonus tracks – "Zimbabwe", "Half Moon", and "You Can't Always Get What You Want". CD

Pierre BarouhCa Va, Ca Vient (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Saravah (Japan), 1971. Used ... $9.99
Genius early work from Pierre Barouh – the artist best known for his contribution to the film A Man & A Woman, but also the owner of the legendary Saravah Records label – one of the grooviest imprints around! The set is a real move forward from Barouh's earlier material, which was a bit straighter – although still pretty hip – and this time around, he's bringing in a wide range of elements – Brazilian bits, folksy touches, and more – all served up with an approach that's as uniquely personal as work by other Saravah artists, like Brigitte Fontaine or Areski! Barouh's a brilliant writer and singer, and his work is a lost link in a tradition that spans Caetano Veloso, Leonard Cohen, Serge Gainsbourg, and others – crucially overlooked on this side of the Atlantic, and extremely important to us over the years. Titles include "De L'Amour A L'Amour", "Le Courage D'Aimer", "80 AB", "La Foret", "Le Petit Cheval De Bois", "Le Petit Cine", and "Paris Wellington". CD features bonus tracks – "Le Naufrage", "Perdu", "Ca Va Ca Vient (cinema version)", and "80 AB". CD

✨✧ Gary BartzHarlem Bush Music – Uhuru (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Milestone/Concord, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
An essential record from Gary Bartz – one of two albums he cut with Andy Bey, and the killer group he was calling his NTU Troup! Andy's vocals are incredible – light years ahead of anything he did with his sisters, and similar to those he laid down on his own solo album for Atlantic, and on Blue Note sides with Horace Silver – a righteous mix of jazz and soul, with a burning intensity that makes the political themes of the tracks come out strongly. The album includes one of Andy's all time classics – the original 7 minute version of "Celestial Blues", plus the fantastically grooving "Uhuru Sasa" – as well as the cuts "The Planets", and "Blue (A Folk Tale)". And Gary Bartz is pretty great too – dropping in these angular reed lines that really give the record an edge, and which sound totally great next to Bey's vocals! LP, Vinyl record album

Gianni Basso & Renato SellaniIsn't It Romantic? ... CD
Philology (Italy), 2001. New Copy ... $18.99 21.98
A fantastic update of an older tenor and piano mode – served up here by the great Gianni Basso and Renato Sellani! Both players are stalwarts of the Italian scene, and both often never fully got their due on this side of the Atlantic – and together, they craft a wonderful set of moody, late nite ballads that could just as easily have been cut by Ben Webster and Oscar Peterson – although maybe with some darker, more modern currents on Sellani's piano than Oscar – and some classic, but individual phrasing by Basso! The tunes are all standards, but opened up in that very personal way that the best soloists can acquire – and titles include "Nancy", "Everything I Have Is Yours", "Deep Purple", "I Remember Clifford", "I Should Care", "Body & Soul", and "I'll Remember April".

George BensonIn Your Eyes ... CD
Warner, 1983. Used ... $3.99
Sweetly jazzy soul from George Benson – a key classic from his great run at Warner Brothers Records, and the kind of record that George did better than anyone else at the time! Back in the 60s, we'd never have guessed that Benson's sweetly crackling vocals would dominate popular jazz more than his great guitar work – but hearing George here, it's clear that his soul work could easily outshine his guitar, especially when set up in a package like this! Atlantic soul maestro Arif Mardin produced, and as with his Chaka Khan productions for Warner at the time, he gives Benson a clean, clear modern style that's certainly pop, but also a lot less cluttered and clunky than modes used with other artists at the time. George is mostly on the vocal tip for the set, and Kashif helps out on one track – no surprise, given that Kashif was soon to walk down the path that Benson had started with his first few vocal albums in the 70s. Titles include "Love Will Come Again", "Use Me", "Late At Night", "In Search Of A Dream", "Lady Love Me", "In Your Eyes", and "Never Too Far To Fall". CD

Jane BirkinBaby Alone In Babylone (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A later album from Jane B, but one that's still pretty darn groovy, thanks to arrangements from Alan Hawkshaw! The overall sound is somewhat in keeping with the date – keyboards and rhythms that sound more 80s than 70s – but the tunes themselves have all the breathy, sensual qualities of Birkin's best work with Serge Gainsbourg from years back – no surprise, given that Serge wrote all the tunes in the set! As before, the combination of Birkin and Gainsbourg is hard to resist – still the standard by which so much other work like this should be judged – on either side of the Atlantic. Titles include "Overseas Telegram", "Rupture Au Miroir", "Haine Pour Aime", and "Norma Jean Baker". CD

Bastard Jazz (UK), 2017. New Copy (pic cover)... $13.99
Beautifully layered vocals, trumpet, and beats from Miles Bonny – a set that reminds us that he's still one of the freshest talents in the contemporary underground! All the tracks here were recorded in KC, but have a future soul sound that can easily rival work on either side of the Atlantic – as Bonny blows his horn over these laidback grooves that are all sweet and spacey around the edges, and cosmically deep in the middle – topped with vocals that are surprisingly soulful, in a way that never tries to do too much – which is really one of their greatest strengths! Beats are by Ta-Ku – and titles include "As You Sleep In My Lap", "The Future's Today", "I'll Be Here For You", "People Going Crazy", and "Welcome To My Arms". LP, Vinyl record album

Ruth BrownRuth Brown '65 ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99
A very unusual setting for the legendary Ruth Brown – the singer who first rose to fame singing raw-edged R&B tracks for Atlantic Records in the 50s – but who works here in a much jazzier mode overall! The set features backings from Peter Matz – who often accompanied the classier singers of the time – and Ruth really does a great job of mixing her bold vocals with his jazzy charts – soaring to new heights in a way that swings nicely, and makes for much deeper soul than most of Matz's other projects. Musicians include Hank Jones on piano, Clark Terry on trumpet, Barry Galbraith on guitar, Urbie Green on trombone, and Richard Davis on bass – and there also seem to be some female backup singers in a few spots too. Titles include two from Nellie Lutcher "Hurry On Down" and "He's A Real Gone Guy" and Dick Hyman's "Watch It", "Whispering Grass", "I Know Why", "Here's That Rainy Day", and a very interesting interpretation of "On The Good Ship Lollipop" – which almost makes the whole tune sound like a sad ballad.

✨✧ Dave BrubeckTwo Generations Of Brubeck – Live At The Apollo Theater 1973 ... CD
Hi Hat, 1973. New Copy ... $16.99
A great live recording of the Two Generations Of Brubeck group that also issued a few albums for Atlantic Records in the early 70s – and a set that's maybe even more dynamic than those better-known albums! The group here features father Dave Brubeck on piano – working alongside Darius Brubeck on keyboards, Chris Brubeck on trombone, and Dan Brubeck on drums – a combo that come on with a nice degree of force here in a live performance from the Apollo Theater – especially Darius, whose use of keyboards (Rhodes?) really packs a punch! The group also features excellent work from a young Jerry Bergonzi on alto and tenor, and the great Perry Robinson on clarinet – and things even get a bit funky at times too. The elder Dave is sometimes a bit lost in the proceedings, but that also makes the whole thing a nice change from usual. Titles include "Don Juan", "Earth Rise", "Blues For Newport", "Jet Set/Circadian Dysrhythmia", "Unsquare Dance", and "Three To Get Ready". CD
