Family AtlanticaCosmic Unity ... CD
Soundway (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $6.99 11.98
The title certainly gets it right – as there's a strongly unified sense of spirit here from Family Atlantica – even more so than on their debut album! As before, there's a range of global elements moving through the mix – currents of South American and African styles, given a slightly more contemporary European presentation – but somehow these guys have really found a way to put everything together with an even tighter, more cohesive sound – one that expands through jazzy solo work on tenor, alto, trumpet, and trombone – and which really draws a lot from the wide range of percussion and other instrumentation used by co-leader Jack Yglesias. The lovely Luzmira Zerpa handles most of the vocals – and some percussion too – and the album also features guest appearances from 70s legends Orlando Julius on tenor and Marshal Allen on alto sax. Titles include "Baiao Infinito", "Near The Ocean", "Efik", "Cosmic Unity", "Canto De Pilon", "El Rio", "Cacao", "Okoroba", and "Neti Neti". CD

Ralph McTellAll Things Change – The Transatlantic Anthology 1967 to 1970 ... CD
Transatlantic/Cherry Tree (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99
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".

✨✧ VariousRoulette Rock N Roll Vol 2 ... CD
Roulette/Sequel (UK), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
The title says "rock n roll", but the music is mostly soul and R&B – all recorded for the legendary Roulette Records at the end of the 50s, and featuring a fair bit of obscure singles showing up here on reissue for the first time! The package is surprisingly great, considering the simple cover image – and there's a fair bit of great musical surprises in the lineup – including some tracks that help Roulette stand strongly next to Atlantic and King Records as a home to some hard-wailing R&B and sweet doo wop harmonies! Titles include "The Drag" and "Everybody's Gonna Rock" by The Isley Brothers, "The Whammy" and "Strange" by Screamin Jay Hawkins, "7-11" by Gone All Stars, "Screamin Ball" by The Duponts, "Hippy Dippy Daddy" by The Cookies, "Roll Over Beethoven" by The 4 Chaps, "Hindu Baby" by The Emanons, "Dance With Me" by The Chaperones, "Alabama Rock & Roll" by Mabel King, "The Woo Woo Train" by The Valentines, and 4 previously unissued tracks by Wynonie Harris – including "Did You Get The Message", "Josephine", "Spread The News", and "Saturday Night".

✨✧ VariousWhere Southern Soul Began Vol 3 – 1957-1963 – History Of Soul ... CD
History Of Soul (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... 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.

Arthur AlexanderArthur Alexander – The Greatest ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
A seminal collection of work by one of the earliest figures in southern soul of the 60s – the amazing Arthur Alexander, a key link between 50s R&B and many years of great music to come! The CD features most of Alexander's early 60s recordings for Dot Records, including previously unissued numbers – some of the first soul sides to come out of the Muscle Shoals scene, most of which were recorded by a young Rick Hall. Alexander's voice is quite different than many other southern singers in years to come – but that's the great thing about these recordings, as they allow you to hear the genre in transition – with a sound that didn't just leap out of the minds of a few talents at Stax or Atlantic. CD features 21 tracks in all – titles that include "Black Cat", "You're The Reason", "Anna", "After You", "Where Have You Been", "A Shot Of Rhythm & Blues", "Detroit City", "Go Home Girl", "Keep Her Guessing", and "I Hang My Head & Cry".

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".

Harry ArnoldHarry Arnold + Big Band + Quincy Jones = Jazz! ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Very Good ... $6.99
Hard swinging big band material from Sweden – featuring the big band of Harry Arnold arranged by Quincy Jones. Quincy had been spending a lot of time in Sweden during the mid 50s – bringing with him a host of great players that would soon become big names on the European scene. Biggest of these is Benny Bailey, who plays some good solos here with a mostly-Swedish group that includes Arne Domnerus, Bengt Hallberb, Ake Persson, and Bengt-Arne Wallin. The style of the work, and its trans-Atlantic jazz orientation, is a direct precursor of later work by the Clarke-Boland Big Band – of whom Bailey was a big part. Titles all swing nicely, and tracks include "Doodlin", "Room 608", "Quincy's Home Again", "Brief Encounter", and "Meet Benny Bailey". LP, Vinyl record album

Astors/NewcomersAstors Meet The Newcomers – Sweet Soul From Memphis ... CD
Stax, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $3.99
An excellent CD that brings together some hard to find tracks recorded by two of the few vocal groups to record for the legendary Stax label! The Astors recorded during the mid 60's, and their work has a sound that's similar to some of the classic Stax recordings during the Atlantic years, but with a feel that's a little bit rootsier. The CD includes 11 tracks by them, including "Candy", "Mystery Woman", "More Power to You", and "In the Twilight Zone". The Newcomers recorded for the label during the early 70's, but they never recorded a full album, and were lesser-known than groups that did, like the Dramatics or the Soul Children. On this CD, they lay down some tracks with a youthful, Jackson 5-type sound, and others with a more mature group soul sound. Tracks by them include "Pin The Tail On The Donkey", "The Whole World's A Picture Show", "Keep An Eye On Your Close Friends", and the great "(Too Little In Common To Be Lovers) Too Much Going On To Say Goodbye".

Roy AyersLive At The Montreux Jazz Festival ... LP
Polydor (Japan), 1972. Near Mint- ... $43.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Darrell BanksDarrell Banks Is Here! ... LP
Atco/Blank (Australia), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 24.98
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".

Crest/Hot Casa (France), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
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".

Gary BartzHarlem Bush Music – Uhuru ... LP
Milestone (UK), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $13.99 19.99
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

Archie Bell & The DrellsLet's Groove – The Archie Bell & The Drells Story ... CD
Big Break (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
A great great group who never lost their groove – featured here on a set that's the first-ever label-spanning collection of their genius! The set begins with a huge amount of tracks from the Atlantic Records years of Archie Bell & The Drells – records that start with their raw Texas funk groove, then move into the group hitting a Philly soul mode – which they do wonderfully, and continue to expand their sound in a really great way! The second half focuses on their sublime 70s Philly gems for Gamble & Huff – tracks that showed up on the Philadelphia International family of labels, and which had Archie and the group sounding equally great on the modern club dancefloors! There's also some rare material that was recorded in between these stretches for the Glades label – and the 44 track, 2CD set is overflowing with rare gems, well-remembered favorites, and other well-chosen tracks. Titles include "Soul City Walk", "I Love My Baby", "My Balloon's Going Up", "You Never Know What's On A Woman's Mind", "Girls Grow Faster Than Boys", "Old People", "Strategy", "Show Me How To Dance", "Glad You Could Make It (12" disco)", "Go For What You Know", "Showdown", "Dog Eat Dog", "A Soldier's Prayer 1967", "Do The Choo Choo", "Girl You're Too Young", "Don't Let The Music Slip Away", "Wrap It Up", "Deal With Him", "Archie's In Love", "Ain't Nothing For A Man In Love", "I've Been Missing You", and "Nothing Comes Easy".

Bionic BoogieHot Butterfly (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/FTG, 1978. Used ... $9.99
A dancefloor classic! The album's the second by Gregg Diamond's Bionic Boogie, and head and shoulders above the rest – a sublime blend of soul and club that's hardly been matched again! Diamond manages to make things groove, but never loses sight of the soulful styles that make the record so great – and works here with key contributions from a young Luther Vandross, who gives the album some of the same strong vocal arrangements he brought to his own first two albums on Atlantic! Luther sings lead on the album's legendary track "Hot Butterfly", and works in a group with Cissy Houston on other tracks – sweetly soaring with vocals that go far beyond most disco efforts of the time. Simply sublime, and with classics that include "Hot Butterfly", "Paradise", "Cream (Always Rises To The Top)", "Chains", and "When The Sh*t Hits The Fan (Rocket Pocket)". Includes 4 bonus cuts too – "Hot Butterfly (Jim Burgess disco rmx)", "Chains (Gregg Diamond spectacular rmx)", "Fess Up To The Boogie (Gregg Diamond disco rmx)", and "Chains (Jim Burgess disco rmx)".
