Laurie JohnsonAvengers – Original Television Scores ... LP
Starlog/Varese, 1960s/1982. Near Mint- ... $24.99
An excellent collection of great soundtrack numbers from British maestro Laurie Johnson! This set was pulled together in the early 80s, so it not only features numbers from the first run of the Avengers series, but also from the New Avengers, as well as a great batch from the Professionals series, too, all done in an excellent, sweeping orchestral style! 14 numbers in all, including the "Main Title", "Theme From Obsession", "Cat Amongst The Pigeons", "Theme From Joker", "Tale Of The Big Why", "Theme from Pandora", "Sleuthing", "On The Scent", "In Pursuit", 'Waiting And Ambush" and "On Target".

Mike Sammes Singers & The John Gregory OrchestraChannel West (TV Western Themes/Avengers & Other TV Themes/Let's Get Away From It All/The Melody Moves) ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $8.99 13.99
Two very different slices of work from the Brit easy scene at the start of the 60s – TV music from arranger John Gregory, and a set of swinging vocal sides from the great Mike Sammes Singers! Gregory dominates the first record – which is split between an album of western themes, mostly from American sources – taken at a relatively serious level with added vocals from Sammes' group. The second half of the Gregory tracks are more swinging – and feature work from The Avengers and other 60s crime/spy material. Gregory titles include "The Avengers", "Sunset Strip", "Johnny Staccato", "Route 66", "Tightrope", "Sugarfoot", "Maverick", "Bonanza", "Rawhide", and "Perry Mason". The other part of the collecvtion features excellent material from the Mike Sammes Singers – a mixed male/female group who work in a very jazzy style – clearly schooled in the vocalese of Lambert Hendricks & Ross or The Blue Stars – but also working with more of a lyrical approach, and this sprightly feel that would have been perfect on 60s TV. The arrangements are great – jazzier than they are cheesy – and titles include "Taking A Chance On Love", "Pick Yourself Up", "Passing Breeze", "Spring Spring Spring", "Nice To Know You Care", "I Know That You Know", and "Manhattan". Package also fetaures more bonus tracks from the Sammes Singers! CD

✨✧ Laurie JohnsonLaurie Johnson With A Vengance ... CD
Sequel/Castle (UK), Late 60s. Used ... $9.99
Cool beans! We've always loved the original Avengers TV show from England (mostly, we admit, for the chance to see Diana Rigg in black leather!) Now, Sequel have gone and put out some of Laurie Johnson's great music for the show, plus a whole batch of other 60's UK easy tracks with a nice groove to them! If you know the Avengers, you know that Laurie's a great composer of the sort of swingin' crime stuff that makes a show like that go so well – and here, he gets heavily into that sort of mod groove, plus other good soundtrack themes and instrumentals. The cool package has 30 cuts in all, including "Avengers", "Top Secret", "Grand Central", "Times Square", "South Beach", "Drum Crazy", "Minor Bossa Nova", "Chaka", "Latin Quarter", "West End", "The City", and "Solo".

VariousArock/Serock/Sylvia – Soul Story Continued ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
A trio of New York labels from the 60s – all of which worked together closely, under the guidance of the mighty Al Sears – and turned out a motherlode of uptown soul gems in the process! The work here is mostly deeper than any chart hits of the time – tunes that have all the care and perfection of soul material you'd hear from bigger NY labels of the time – like Atlantic, Wand, or Scepter – but the cuts are all pretty darn obscure, in a way that makes the collection a huge discovery in soul! A few artists are ones who scored big on other imprints, but most are much lesser-known – yet there's a focus and clarity to these tunes, right from the start – the best sort of New York soul sharpness of the time, cut with a few deep soul touches too. Titles include "I Can't Stay Away" by Joan Moody, "When The Going Gets Rough" by Tutti Hill, "Take My Hand" by Gene Burks, "Love Is Such A Good Thing" by The Corvairs, "It Won't Work Out" by Junior Lewis, "Did You Hear" by Don Covay, "Another Sleepless Night" by The Larks, "Kindness Love & Understanding" by Eddie King, "Something Else" by Chet Ivey & His Fabulous Avengers, "You Were All I Needed" by The DC Playboys, "This Is My Prayer" by Theola Kilgore, "It Ain't No Big Thing" by Van McCoy, "Chained Am I" by Ansler Montell, "I Wanna Come In" by Billy Washington, and "Nobody But Me" by Sinner Strong.

BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Funky funky funky – way more so than you might think from the hokey title! The set's overflowing with rare instrumentals pulled from the indie label and funky 45 underground of the late 60s and early 70s – very much in the spirit of the Super Funk compilations on BGP, but almost harder-hitting, as the groove's completely without vocals overall – and the range of material is even more obscure than some of the usual BGP/Ace bits! The combos on the set range from rocking R&B combos to early funky jazz outfits – and the recording quality on most of these tracks is nice and rough and ready – with just the right edge to send over these cuts even more! Titles include "More Soul" by Ron Buford, "Ninety Eight Cents Plus Tax" by Detroit City Limits, "Chocolate Cherry" by Joe Tex Band, "Humpin" by Frank Armstrong & The Stingers, "Stokin" by Leon Ferguson & The Groove Tones, "Thing" by Lowell Fulsom, "Sundance (part 1)" by Lorenzo Holden, "Put Your Weight On It (part 1)" by Fillmore Street Soul Rebellion, "Roly Poly Mickey Lolich" by The Fans, and "Bad On Bad" by Chet Ivey & His Fabulous Avengers.

VariousSoul Emissaries – Super Funk – Rare Black American Music From The 1970s & 80s ... CD
BGP (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $14.99
A really great entry in the excellent Super Funk series – one that offers up cuts that are every bit as strong on their soulful vocals as they are their funky grooves! The track selection is wonderful – rare cuts from 45s, of the sort that funk diggers have been trading for years – plus some of those extra-special unreleased tracks, which the folks at Ace/BGP always seem able to dig up through their access to the vaults! The notes are filled with rare photos, label scans, and loads of information on the cuts – showing that their selection here wasn't just a random process – and despite the title, most tracks here are 70s numbers from the heavy funk years. Titles include "Dark Skin Woman" by Billy Cee, "Love Highjacker" by George Jackson, "You Bring The Tears" by Sampson & Delilah, "Born To Live With Heartache" by Mary Lvoe, "Sweet Thang" by William Bostic, "Foolish Man (part 2)" by The Huck Daniels Co, "Work It Out" by Marcene Harris, "Jodine" by Earl Harris, "Funky Kingston" by Tribe, "Brother Jack" by The Funky Kids, "Forgotten" by Lamont Johnson, "Daddy Please Stay Home" by Obrey Wilson, and "So Fine" by Chet Ivey & His Fabulous Avengers.

VariousSuper Funk Vol 4 – Rare & Classic Street Funk From The Vaults 1966 to 1972 ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Heavy funk galore – and easily one of the best titles in the massive Super Funk series! This one seems to go deeper than all the previous volumes – really digging down for some obscure tracks that push past the obvious funky 45 standards, to include some lost gems from rare sources in the southern scene! The set's awash in hard drums, fuzzy bass, tripped out guitar, and lots of rootsy deep soul vocals – stepping from track to track with a quality level that beats most other funky 45 collections on the market, made even better by some superb liner notes from compiler Dean Rudland! Titles include "I Got Some" by Billy Garner, "Deep Soul (part 2)" by Ron Buford, "Doin The Model" by Eddie Clearwater, "Crazy Legs (part 2)" by Albert Washington, "Momma Momma" by Betty Barney, "Don't Ever Change" by Chet Ivey & His Fabulous Avengers, "The Warm Up (part 1)" by Clifton White, "Chicken Scratch" by The Chili Peppers, "Fat N Funky" by Charles Crawford, "Super Cool (You're Just A Super Fool)" by Pat Hunt, "Out Of Sight" by The Soulsetters, and "Boogaloo Party" by Joe Swift's International. 20 tracks in all!

VariousThings Gonna Get Better – Street Funk & Jazz Grooves 1970 to 1977 ... CD
BGP (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Plenty of street funk and just a bit of jazz here – all served up in the kind of killer funky collection we've always loved from the BGP label! As with some of their other gems, this set goes way beyond the obvious – and digs deep to not just feature rare singles and album tracks, but also include some never-issued recordings from the same period – which makes the set every bit as important for collectors of vintage 45s as it is for newcomers just looking to get a funky taste! There's a hard, deep vibe to most of these tracks – definitely some of the righteous message promised by the cover and title, but also just some plain old funky elements too – served up with lots of sinister guitar lines, heavy drums, and a mix of instrumental riffing and hard soul vocals. Titles include a special instrumental DJ edit of "A Joyful Process" by Funkadelic – plus "Dose Of Soul" by Chet Ivey & His Fabulous Avengers, "Do It" by Billy Sha Rae, "Music For The Brothers" by The Solicitors, "What's The Matter With The World" by Dave Hamilton, "Chains" by Blacks & blues, "Things Gonna Get Better" by Clarence Coulter, "Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get" by Pretty Purdie & The Playboys, "One Man's Loss" by Vernon Garrett, "125th Street & 7th Ave" by Richard Groove Holmes, "Mucho Macho" by Macho, "Push On Jesse Jackson" by The Pace Setters, "Shorty The Pimp" by Don Julian, and "Payin Dues" by Ruby Delicious.

VariousToo Much Monkey Business – Wild Beat, R&B, & Fuzzy Pop Nuggets From The HMV Vaults – 1965 to 1969 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
HMV/Universal (New Zealand), Late 60s. New Copy ... $38.99
Prepare to discover a whole new scene in sound – the New Zealand underground of the late 60s, and a surprisingly hotbed of totally wonderful psych, beat, and garage-styled groups! The music here is everything promised by the title – and maybe even better than you might expect, as so many of these cuts are the kind of nuggets that would have broke huge on the US or UK scenes at the time, but which never got their due thanks to the obscurity of NZ at the time! Yet don't let that distance hold you back now, because this beautifully-done collection finally illuminates these overlooked years – and the wealth of raw talent seething in the scene down under – with edges that are maybe even sharper than some of the better-known Australian groups of the time. We'd not heard many of these groups or tracks before – and our collective hats are off to the producers who brought the whole thing together – a stunning batch of rockers that include "Too Much Monkey Business" by The Bitter End, "Love" by Mr Lee Grant, "Water Pipe" by The Avengers, "My Mama George" by The Fourmyula, "Morning Dew" by Retaliation, "The Grooviest Girl In The World" by Simple Image, "Time Beyond" by Top Shelf, "I'm A Dog" by Librettos, "Ain't Got You" by The Breakaways, and "Get The Picture" by The Selected Few.

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
England was a surprisingly funky place in the 60s and 70s – home to a rich array of great grooves created by the scene's important sound library labels – staffed by the cream of the crop of the British jazz musicians and soundtrack composers of the time! The work of these cats often backed bigger names in film and TV – James Bond, The Avengers, Dave Allen, and others – but this set digs even deeper, to uncover a host of great instrumental moments that go way beyond famous movie themes – a wealth of excellent cuts from the late 50s through the late 70s – starting with exotic jazz modes, moving into 60s mod swingers, and including a fair bit of 70s electric funk as well! This scene's been reissued a bit before, but never this well – as Soul Jazz do their usual top-shelf job of bringing the music together – and offering up detailed notes and a great package that really sends the whole thing home. 2CD version features 36 tracks that include "Condition Red" by Barry Stoller, "Light Flight" by Pentangle, "Man Alive" by Tony Hatch, "The Contract Man" by Bullet, "Echo Four Two" by Laurie Johnson, "Man Friday" by Syd Dale, "Hard Hitter" by Keith Papworth, "Fragment Of Fear" by Johnny Harris, "Sort Of Soul" by Birds & Brass, "Fiesta Numero Uno" by The Marleybone Orchestra, "The Persuaders" by John Barry, "Getting Nowhere In A Hurry" by Roy Budd, "Canvas" by Brian Bennett, "Death Line" by Will Malone, "Folk Song" by James Clarke, "Steam Heat" by Barbara Moore, "Artful Dodger" by Syd Dale, "Jaguar" by John Gregory, "Whole Lotta Love" by CCS, "Face Up" by Alan Moorehouse, "Angels" by Alan Parker, and "Soul Thing" by Keith Mansfield.

✨✧ VariousMore Lost Legends Of Surf Guitar (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sundazed, Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
More Lost Legends Of Surf Guitar put together by Sundazed – absolutely killer tunes from the creme of the underground crop! These are the inventors and originators of the seedy surf garage sound – including The Trashmen, The Belairs, Jan Davis, The Gladiators, The Avengers VI and many more. All the hallmark elements of classic surf are here in full force – the reverb guitar sound, heavy sax, shouted vocals and the all around rumbling vibe. Sundazed gives it the reverent treatment these tunes deserve, but it's still presented in a fun, unfussy way. Incredible! 28 tracks on 2LPs – including a few previously unissued tunes – and it's all in the original mono mixes. Includes "Time Bomb" by The Avengers VI, "Surfbuster" by Jan Davis, "Volcanic Action" by The Belairs, "The Hearse" by Al Casey, "(They Call The Wind) Maria" by PJ And Artie, "Surfbeat" by The Surfriders, "Istambul" by The Gladiators, "Moon Race" by The Citations, "Strange Fever" by Thom Starr And The Galaxies, "The Truant" by The Truants, "Raw-Hide" by The Pastels.
