Guinga & Carlos Gomes QuartetoAvenida Atlantica ... CD
SESCSP (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the most exciting albums we've ever heard from Guinga – the Brazilian singer and guitarist whose been making great records for many years, but who really seems to open up something new with this one! The album features Guinga next to a string quartet – his own voice and guitar very strong in the lead, but often getting both rhythmic and melodic elements from the quartet – who bring a gentle sort of drama to the music, and really highlight the sometimes-missed power of Guinga's music. The approach is never too "arch" – never overly cerebral, and instead maybe hits that same emotive vibe that we love in the way that Astor Piazzolla could use a violin or larger string arrangements without interfering with the core of a song. Arrangements are by Paulo Aragao – who's to be equally credited with the strength of the record – and titles include "Odalisca", "Chapliniana", "Saci", "Domingo De Nazares", "Suite Casa De Villa", "Tom E Vinicius", and "Pucciniana".

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".

VariousLet The Electric Children Play – The Underground Story Of Transatlantic Records 1968 to 1976 (3CD set) ... CD
Transatlantic/Esoteric (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99
A very cool look at the freakiest years of the legendary Transatlantic Records label – an important British imprint that was essential to blues and folk in the late 60s, but which also released some much trippier material too! The music here is a frenetic blend of jazz, folk, prog, and some surprisingly funky modes at times – a really fresh, freewheeling assemblage of different musical elements by a younger generation of musicians who were neither slavish to their influences, nor willing to let anyone hold back their creativity! Bigger names on the Transatlantic label have gotten huge rediscovery in recent years, but many of the artists here are much more obscure – brought together beautifully, along with a big booklet of notes that really gets at the diversity of the music. Titles include "Norwegian Wood" and "II BS" by Circus, "We Can Swing Together" and "Obadiah's Grave" by Alan Hull, "Metamorphosis" and "Billy The Monster" by The Deviants, "Paint It Black" and "We've Had It" by Jody Grind, "Skin Valley Serenade" by Skin Alley, "Criminal World" by Metro, "Mendle" by Mr Fox, "Don't Ever Give Up Trying" by Unicorn, "Mice & Rats In The Loft" by Jan Dukes De Grey, "Born To Be Free" by Marsupilami, "All In Your Mind" by Stray, "Tear Down The Wall" by Peter Bardens, "A Distant Thought A Point Of Light" by CMU, "Shelter" by Renia, "Opening Move" by Gryphon, "Journey's End" by Decameron, "Saturday Round About Sunday (single version)" by The Humblebums, and "Mona" by Mick Farren. 49 tracks in all!

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".

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

✨✧ Gary BartzHarlem Bush Music – Uhuru ... LP
Milestone (UK), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $17.99 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

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".

Archie Bell & The DrellsDance Your Troubles Away ... CD
TSOP/Sony (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
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)". CD

Miles BonnyLet It Out EP ... LP
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 BrownSoftly (aka Ruth Brown 65) ... LP
Mainstream, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
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

Bobby ByrdHelp For My Brother – The Pre-Funk Singles 1963 to 1968 ... CD
BGP (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Incredible work from Bobby Byrd – the man who was literally standing in the shadow of James Brown during the 60s – given how many times Bobby appeared with James on stage, and worked with him in the studio! Yet despite that near-lifetime association with The Godfather, Bobby's a hell of a singer on his own – definitely in the JB mold, but with a voice that can sometimes sweetly crackle in a very personal style – and also open up into different themes that sometimes move his music more towards Stax or Atlantic than some of James' King Records material from the time! All that range and plenty more is presented here – in an overlooked side of Bobby's career – all the wonderfully strong solo tracks he recorded with James Brown as a producer – issued in the mid 60s by the Smash and King Records labels, and a hell of a discography on its own. In fact, had Byrd not worked with James, we'd maybe guess that he would have hit even bigger fame on his own with these singles – such is the quality in both the vocals and overall presentation. This is the first time this material has ever been pulled together like this – and most of it has never been reissued at all – and the 24 track CD is overflowing with great notes that also give Bobby his due. Titles include "Write Me A Letter", "I Found Out", "Ain't No Use", "I'm Just A Nobody (parts 1 & 2)", "Lost In The Mood Of Changes", "You're Gonna Need My Lovin", "Let Me Know", "Time Will Make A Change", "No One Like My Baby", "Funky Soul (parts 1 & 2)", "You Gave Me Heart A Song To Sing", "My Concerto", and "I'm Lonely".

✨✧ Cane & AbleCane & Able ... LP
AKT, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A fantastic bit of tripped out funk! Cane & Able were one of the many groups that came out of the collective surrounding the Lafayette Afro-Rock Band in the early 70s – and like that group, Cane & Able draw on a wide range of influences to create a heavy funky sound. The album mixes the African influences used by the LARB with more of a hard soul vocal approach, with some cuts sounding a bit like material from Atlantic albums of the late 60s, but handled with more of a fuzzy edge. Includes a great funky reading of Wilson Pickett's "Don't Knock My Love", a cover of "Who's Gonna Take The Weight", and the long tripped-out groover "Girl You Move Me"! LP, Vinyl record album

CapitolsDance The Cool Jerk ... LP
Atco, 1966. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A landmark set of grooves by this excellent Detroit group – a trio who recorded for the local indie Karen, but got a much bigger boost towards fame when their record was picked up by Atlantic! The set's one of the killer 60s Motor Town sets produced by Ollie McLaughlin – and like the rest, it's got a really special edge – music that goes way past any simple 60s soul cliches, and which will make the set one of the real standouts in your collection. Arrangements are by Dale Warren, Riley Hampton, and Mike Terry – and titles include The Capitols' big hit "Cool Jerk", and also includes loads of other great tracks written by Donald Storball of the group – like "Dog & Cat", "Zig Zaggin", "The Kick", and others – plus versions of "Hello Stranger", "Love Makes The World Go Round", and "Good Lovin".

CapitolsWe Got A Thing ... LP
Atco, 1966. Very Good+ ... $9.99
An obvious follow-up to their big hit "Cool Jerk", but a great album of raw soulful tracks that puts this Detroit group right up there with the best of the 60s up-tempo harmony groups! Apart from the nice original title cut, the record's also got a number of other great tracks like "It's Googaloo Time", "Tired Running From You", "I Got To Handle It", and "I Feel Alright". There's a few other Atlantic soul covers, but since the great Ollie McLaughlin produced the session in Detroit, the album's got a much more exciting feel than a lot of other Atlantic soul albums from the time!

Mercury, 1981. Near Mint- (reissue)... $6.99
"Walking Into Sunshine"s THE standout cut from Central Line – a track so big that it got the group noticed over here on our side of the Atlantic, and forever gave them a place in the hallowed halls of 80s groove! The tune chugs along at a great roller skating rhythm – with some spare use of keyboards that pepper the track alongside the catchy vocals. 12-inch, Vinyl record

ChangeReach For The Sky – Anthology ... CD
Groove Line Records (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
Sublime soul from Change – an Italian combo who got some great American help on their early 80s for Warner Brothers! The Change groove is totally great – a stripped-down blend of beats, bass, and keyboards that was head and shoulders above much of the clunkier 80s soul of the time – a lean groove forged from the best Italian club influences of the time, then brought over to this side of the Atlantic for some warmer touches on production and vocals. Luther Vandross sings lead on a few key cuts here, and other tracks have some equally great vocals, including work by Jocelyn Brown, Fonzi Thornton, Deborah Cooper, and Alyson Williams – plus a nice undercurrent of jazz in the mix, especially on the guitar and keyboards. This really well-done collection presents the full scope of the group's genius – and also include some unreleased tracks, and some of those excellent 12" mixes that really stood out with the club scene at the time! Titles include the unreleased "Hold Tight (long version)" and "Keep On It (alt mix)", as well as "It's A Girl's Affair", with vocals by Jocelyn Brown – plus "The Very Best Of You", "Glow Of Love (12" long version)", "Lover's Holiday", "Promise Your Love", "Sharing Your Love (single)", "Hard Times", "Heaven Of My Life", "Miracles", "Searching", "Paradise", "This Is Your Time", "Don't Wait Another Night", "You'll Never Realize (single)", "Got To Get Up (12" rmx)", "Change Of Heart (12" long version)", "It Burns Me Up (single)", "You Are My Melody", "Warm", "Say You Love Me Again", "Let's Go Together", "Mutual Attraction (12" rmx)", and "Oh What A Feeling (Paul Hardcastle 12" rmx)".

Rob ChapmanPsychedelia & Other Colours (hardcover) ... Book
Faber & Faber (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $4.99 36.00
An incredibly dense book on the psychedelic scene of the 60s – a huge volume that not only looks at an impressive array of music, but also the wider trippy culture, too – but all with a level of text that goes far beyond most of the thinner volumes on the period! Many of the chapter titles refer to key musical texts, but then quickly extrapolate from those moments – soaring out from "I Am The Blackgold Of The Sun", "The Greta Garbo Home For Wayward Boys & Girls", and "Painting With Light" – and looking at psychedelia on both sides of the Atlantic in the 60s, with lots of surprising insights along the way. Despite a very vivid cover, the book itself is all text, no images – a hefty 638 pages, hardcover, and a very deep read! Book
