Mose AllisonAutumn Song ... LP
Prestige, 1959. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Mose Allison's last album for Prestige Records – before moving onto even bigger fame at Columbia and Atlantic during the 60s! Unlike Allison's later sets, this one is mostly instrumental – but there are a few sweet vocal tracks that bring out the hip, rootsy lyrical modes that would make Mose a big hit with the mod scene overseas – including the classic "Eyesight To The Blind", plus "That's All Right" and "Do Nothing Till You Here From Me". The remaining piano trio sides have a great rollicking groove – rootsy, yet slightly modern too – with bass by Addison Farmer and drums from Ronnie Free – on titles that include "Promenade", "It's Crazy", "Strange", "Autumn Song", and "Groovin High". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing.)

Keren AnnYou're Gonna Get Love (deluxe edition) ... CD
Universal (France), 2016. New Copy ... $19.99
Wonderful work from Keren Ann – a French singer we first fell in love with on her albums done with producer Benjamin Biolay – working here with a different talent at the helm, but a sound that's equally sublime! Keren's also making a big step towards a global market here, too – continuing her trend of singing in English, which is the case throughout the album – which really helps get her captivating tunes and amazing sound to a larger market on this side of the Atlantic – all without losing the breathy charm of her previous French language vocals. The tunes have this moody vibe, almost in a hip early 70s singer/songwriter mode – and backing instrumentation that really follows suit. Titles include "Again & Again", "you Knew Me Then", "Bring Back", "The Separated Twin", "You Have It All To Lose", and "The River That Swallows All The Rivers". CD

Arnaldo Antunes, Edgard Scandura & Toumani DiabateA Curva Da Cintura (Brazilian pressing) ... CD
Rosa Celeste (Brazil), 2011. Used ... $18.99
One of the coolest records in years from the always-creative Arnaldo Antunes – a trio effort that has him working with Toumani Diabate and Edgard Scandurra – in a pan-Atlantic set of sounds that's really amazing! Antunes' creative approach to songwriting is very much in place – but it's also inflected by an earthier element than before, given the presence of the two other artists – kora and percussion from Diabate, and some great acoustic guitar from Scandurra – both of which really warm up the tunes, and help unlock a whole new side of Arnaldo's vocals! The album was recorded both in Mali and Brazil – with results that definitely show that blend – and titles include "A Curva Da Cintura", "Cara", "Um Senhor", "Psiu", "Ce Sabe Como E", "Ir Mao", "Kaira", and "Grao De Chaos". Also features some great bonus tracks too – written by Diabate and Scandurra. Not even the MTV logo on the front can take away our enthusiasm for the record! CD

Derek Bailey/George Lewis/John ZornYankees ... CD
Celluloid, 1983. Used ... $6.99
Spare improvisations from this transatlantic trio of avant jazzers – Derek Bailey on guitar, George Lewis on trombone, and John Zorn on alto, soprano sax, and clarinets! Despite the avant-rock stylings of other work on Celluloid at the time, this one's got a spare, free sound that's very much in keeping with the best work by the players on other labels at the time – coming across more like a record on Parachute or Incus than some of the sloppier crossovers that usually hit the decks on Celluloid. Surprisingly strong all the way through, with titles that include "City City City", "The Warning Track", "On Golden Pond", and "The Legend Of Enos Slaughter". CD

Pierre BarouhCa Va, Ca Vient ... LP
Saravah (France), 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $29.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing – non-gatefold, but with obi.)

Archie Bell & The DrellsDance Your Troubles Away ... LP
TSOP, 1975. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Although Archie Bell & The Drells had recorded earlier with Gamble & Huff on Atlantic, this is their first album for the team's own label – and it's a killer! In a way, Archie and group were sort of responsible for getting Gamble & Huff their own famous imprint in the first place – because their work with the team on Atlantic yielded some instant hits that really pointed the way towards the hit Gamble & Huff style of the 70s, and that sound is brought up-to-date nicely on this LP. The record really retains the strong vocal sound of earlier years – and has some of the best harmonies the band ever recorded, very much in the mode of The O'Jays or Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes. McFadden & Whitehead and Bunny Sigler wrote most of the material, backing is by the Instant Funk group, and the Gamble & Huff team handled production on all cuts. Titles include "Let's Groove", "I Won't Leave You Honey, Never", "Let's Groove", "The Soul City Walk", "Dance Your Troubles Away", and "I Love You (But You Don't Even Know It)".

Big MaybelleI've Got A Feelin' – Okeh & Savoy Recordings 1952 to 1956 ... CD
Okeh/Rev-Ola (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $3.99
A great overview of the important early years of Big Maybelle – work that's probably still some of her best-remembered, all done in a gutsy, soulful style that's every bit as wonderful as 50s R&B on Atlantic from Ruth Brown and Lavern Baker! The package brings together both Maybelle's work for Savoy and Okeh – and in doing so, covers all of her key sides of the mid 50s – some of which are oft-remembered hits, others of which are lesser-known, but even better – in that slightly off-center way that can make obscure R&B still sound great after the passage of many years. CD features 28 titles in all – including the classics "Gabbin Blues" and "Candy" – plus "Ain't No Use", "I'm Getting Long Alright", "You Never Know", "Maybelle's Blues", "Such A Cutie", "So Good To My Baby", "That's A Pretty Good Love", "Ring Dang Dilly", "Pitiful", and "I Don't Want To Cry".

Rene BlochLatin Discotheque ... LP
Clarion, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $33.99
One of the excellent overlooked Latin albums recorded by Atlantic during the 60's – most of which were never issued again. Rene Bloch leads a nice little orchestra through a lively set of mambos and Latin jazz tracks, with a set that's mostly instrumental, and which has a different sound, due to the inclusion of a prominent electric guitar on many tracks. Cuts include "Mambo Watusi", "Sera Charanga?", "Mr. Latin's Mambo", and "Lamento Latino". Nice stuff, and a record that we don't see much! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has sticker remnants on front and very light surface wear.)

Solomon BurkeProud Mary ... LP
Bell, 1969. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Solomon Burke may be most famously known for his early recordings for Atlantic Records – but he still sounds pretty darn great on this set, recorded at Fame Studios in 1969, and with a rootsier feel than before! Solomon himself handled the arrangements, and co-produced with Tamiko Jones – and the instrumentation is quite lean and very stripped-down – drums from Roger Hawkins, guitar from Jimmy Johnson and Eddie Hinton, and keyboards from Barry Beckett – all burning down at the bottom range of the Muscle Shoals spectrum! Titles include a surprisingly great remake of "Proud Mary", plus "These Arms Of Mine", "I Can't Stop", "What Am I Living For", "Uptight Good Woman", "Don't Wait Too Long", and Solomon's own "How Big A Fool (Can a Fool Be)". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover and labels have a drillhole through the center.)

Solomon BurkeProud Mary – The Bell Sessions ... CD
Bell/Sundazed, 1969. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Solomon's most famously known for his Atlantic recordings of the 60s – but immediately after working for that label, when his soul vibe was still quite strong, Solomon cut some great little sides for the Bell label in Muscle Shoals. The approach used was actually a bit rootsier than that on some of Solomon's Atlantic sides, and production on most of the cuts is by Solomon and Tamiko Jones. This CD brings together cuts from Solomon's one LP on Bell, plus 6 bonus cuts that feature him singing some pretty interesting material – done in that style he used in late Atlantic years that made even suspicious cuts sound pretty darn nice! Much of the material is cover versions of tracks – but apart from the hard-to-hear "Proud Mary" (a track that always seems a bit tired from the perspective of this generation), there's lots of nice numbers that bring out this style, like "In The Ghetto", "Change Is Gonna Come", "Uptight Good Woman", "What Am I Living For", "Please Send Me Someone To Love", "These Arms Of Mine", "Don't Wait Too Long", and "That Lucky Old Sun". 17 tracks in all.

James CarrMy Soul Is Satisfied – The Rest Of James Carr ... CD
Kent (UK), 1970s/1990s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A tremendous collection of rare work by Memphis soul legend James Carr – featuring material that's virtually impossible to track down elsewhere! The set brings together a real range of titles – including James' rare single for Atlantic, some obscure River City recordings, a few gospel sides, and even some excellent later tunes, done very much in the style of his classic 60s work! And while you might think that such a blend of work from different sources might sound schizophrenic, it's not – and has a really cohesive quality that's largely carried by James' wonderful deep soul vocals. The package features 23 cuts in all – including "Pouring Water On A Drowning Man", "A Losing Game", "I'll Put It To You", "Bring Her Back", "Hit & Run", "A Woman's Got The Power", "It's Sweet On The Backstreet", "Jordan River", "He'll Be There", "That's When The Blues Began", "She's Better Than You", and "What The World Needs Now Is Love".

Clarence CarterFame Singles Vol 2 – 1970 to 1973 ... CD
Kent (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Sublime sounds from Clarence Carter – wonderful work from his second wave of singles for Fame Records – a wealth of great music from a time when Carter was really coming into his own! Clarence was great right from the start, but here you can really hear him finding his own voice – that all-knowing, storytelling approach that could make even a simple lyric spin out in a way that was totally captivating – with a quality that set Carter apart from some of his more tear-jerked southern soul contemporaries, into a space of class and confidence that would serve him well for years to come! Every number here was recorded at the Fame Studios, with the kind of killer backings you'd expect from the Muscle Shoals team – and although the singles were initially issues over a few different labels (Fame, Atlantic, and United Artists) – they're brought together here in complete order, for a massive 22 track set. Tracks include "I'm The One", "I Hate To Love & Run", "Slipped Tripped & Fell In Love", "Say It One More Time", "It's All In Your Mind", "Sixty Minute Man", "Heartbreak Woman", "Love's Trying To Come To You", "I Found Somebody New", and "Put On Your Shoes & Walk" – plus "If You Can't Beat Em", which is a duet with Candi Staton!

CheckersCheckmate – The Complete King Recordings 1952 to 1955 ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A long-overdue look at one of the greatest vocal groups of the 50s – an quartet with a sound to rival that of The Drifters or The Dominoes at their best! That comparison is no accident, as The Checkers featured members from both groups – although the overall strength of the vocal work on this set is more in line with the hard-wailing Clyde McPhatter Drifters years on Atlantic than it is some of the better-known Dominoes work for King. There's a vocal range and confidence here that's really amazing – a dipping, turning, soaring quality that shows up on nearly all the tunes – and which makes us wonder why the group wasn't at the top of the charts during the years. All tunes are very nicely presented here – with great mastering and full notes on all the Checkers' years at King – and the CD features a total of 26 tracks that includes "You Never Had It So Good", "Don't Stop Dan", "Night's Curtains", "I Wanna Know", "Let Me Come Back", "I Wasn't Thinking I Was Drinking", "Friend In Need", "Mama's Daughter", "I Promise You", and "Love Wasn't There".

Billy CobhamAyajala Live ... CD
Hi Hat, 1978. New Copy ... $16.99
A really sweet late 70s live set from drummer Billy Cobham – recorded live in Chicago, and done with a groove that's right up there with his best Atlantic Records albums from the mid 70s! Billy's on fire throughout, but is also much more in his funky style than his rockish mode – working here with a great lineup that includes deft keyboards from Mark Soskin, guitars from Ray Mouton and Charles Singleton – who also plays a bit of reeds as well. Randy Jackson provides some mighty heavy bass, and Alvin Batiste adds some surprisingly nice clarinet lines to the mix – on titles that include "On A Magic Carpet Ride", "AC/DC", and "Ayajala", and a "Drum Solo" too!

Ornette ColemanOrnette Coleman Trio At The Golden Circle Vol 2 ... LP
Blue Note, 1965. Near Mint- ... $22.99
Important mid 60s work from Ornette – and one of the few recordings of this format to see larger release at the time! The set captures Ornette in a much freer style than heard on his Atlantic recordings from a few years before – paying alto, violin, and trumpet, in a trio with David Izenzon on bass and Charles Moffett on drums. Tracks are long and unbridled – with less of the rhythmic changes that you'd hear in work by the classic quartet, and more of a full-on fierce soloing mode. Titles include "Snowflakes & Sunshine", "Morning Song", "The Riddle", and "Antiques". LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty pressing with Van Gelder stamp.)

Ornette ColemanTown Hall 1962 ... CD
ESP, 1962. Used ... $5.99
A really unique chapter in the career of Ornette Coleman – an album that he produced by himself in 1962, away from any other label – as an effort to showcase the newly freer sounds of his music! The recording's the first in a really groundbreaking stretch for the 60s – and it was fortunately finally issued by ESP Records a few years after the recording – providing a nice link between Coleman's earlier experiments and the sound of the younger generation usually showcased by the label. The group's a trio, with a sound that's quite different than the more rhythmic modes of Coleman on Atlantic Records – a freer, less structured lineup that features percussion from Charles Moffett and bass from David Izenzon. One track also adds in a string quartet – making the record one of Coleman's first experiments with this format – and titles include a 23 minute recording of "The Ark", plus "Doughnut", "Sadness", and "Dedication To Poets and Writers".

John ColtraneAfro Blue Impressions ... CD
Pablo, Early 60s/1977. Used 2 CDs ... $4.99
One of the best posthumous releases by the legendary John Coltrane Quartet – and a set that really captures the group at a perfect moment – when they were really beginning to stretch out a lot, yet still in a style that was mostly inside! The material was recorded in Berlin and Stockholm – and features wonderfully fresh versions of tunes you'll know from classic Impulse and Atlantic albums by Coltrane – really reworked in this live setting, and opened up in that magical style of the group! In addition to some wonderful soprano and tenor sax from Coltrane, the group also features McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – on titles that include "Lonnie's Lament", "Afro Blue", "Cousin Mary", "Spiritual", and "My Favorite Things".

John ColtraneBlack Pearls ... LP
Prestige, 1958. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A beautiful name for a beautiful record – a classic set of hardbop material from John Coltrane's early years as a leader – and a session that has him working with Donald Byrd on trumpet, Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums! The album's got a beautifully laidback feel that prefaces some of the Coltrane's more exploratory work on Impulse and Atlantic – but one that still also has the earthy, straight ahead feel of his best early years on Prestige – a great combination that makes the record a key moment in the early career of The Great One. Tracks are all quite long – not exactly blowing session tunes, but done with a feel that's more open than some of the other Coltrane albums of the time – and titles include "Black Pearls", "Lover Come Back To Me", and "Sweet Sapphire Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label trident pressing. Cover has a bit of gloss separation on the opening.)

John ColtraneJohn Coltrane Quartet Plays ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Very Good- Gatefold ... $39.99
Modal Coltrane at its finest – a record that almost returns the great one to the territory explored at the end of his years at Atlantic Records, but which still incorporates all of the new ideas learned afterwards! The album's actually one of the straightest that John Coltrane cut after 1964 – and it features 4 long, beautiful tracks that soar with rhythms from McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison, and Elvin Jones – topped with searing, searching work on tenor and soprano sax from Coltrane! Titles include one of the greatest readings of "Chim Chim Cheree" we've ever heard – a version that remakes the tune almost as a part 2 of "My Favorite Things" – and other titles include "Song of Praise", the classic "Nature Boy" and "Brazilia". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange & black label A-85 mono pressing, with Van Gelder stamp. Vinyl has a small mark that clicks on "Brazilia". Cover has some pen inside the gatefold and a scrape on back.)
