Harris & His Christmas AvengersGet Down Auld Lang Syne (stereo, mono) (red vinyl) ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2014. New Copy ... $6.99
A fierce, funky bit of Holiday music – one that soars out here in a sweet instrumental mode that takes us back to James Brown's best Christmas cuts of the 60s! The group here starts out slow and somber, but quickly speeds up with hard-riffing guitar, monstrous funky drums, and this burning Hammond that cooks the whole thing nicely all the way through! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited to 500 copies – and pressed on sweet red vinyl!)

✨✧ AvengersEveryone's Gonna Wonder ... CD
Parlophone/RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not the American Avengers punk group from the San Francisco scene of the late 70s – nor the UK television duo of Emma Peel and John Steed – but a totally great late 60s group from New Zealand, and one who've got a beautifully baroque sense of psych to their sound! The group have maybe the same lofty approach that the Bee Gees were using on their own sublime late 60s records, but the sound here is a bit more stripped down, gritty, and garagey – with the higher elements coming both from the way the group harmonizes, and creatively uses conventional small group instrumentation – with these deft turns of instrumental phrase that illuminate the darker corners of the songs in a really great way. The package brings together a host of rare singles, mostly recorded in New Zealand by the Parlophone label – and also even includes some very cool radio spots too! 27 tracks in all – with titles that include "Days Of Pearly Spencer", "Love Hate Revenge", "Midnight Visitation", "Sunshine Lady", "Everyone's Gonna Wonder", "Take My Hand", "Night In The City", "Sally", "September Winds", "What Price Love", "Flower Girl", "Out Of Sight Out Of Mind", "Love Is A One Way Ticket", "Fisherwoman", "Night Time", and "Waterpipe".

Laurie JohnsonAvengers ... LP
Hanna Barbera, 1966. Very Good+ ... $29.99
An unusual American release from British maestro Laurie Johnson – best known as the composer to the Avengers Theme, but presented here on a wide variety of tunes! Although billed with an Avengers title, only the main theme is featured here – alongside some other Johnson original instrumentals, and a few covers – all done in a soaring, full-on orchestral style that glistens and glides in the same manner as Johnson's famous theme. There's a few jazzy touches on some numbers, but also plenty of strings – and titles include "It's Love", "Dear Friend", "Squaresville", "Minor Bossa Nova", "Sabre Dance", "Manuela", and "The Avengers".

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

VariousInstrumental Explosion – Incendiary Funk & R&B Instrumentals 1966-1973 ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99 22.99
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.

VariousModernists – Modernism's Sharpest Cuts ... LP
Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $14.99 18.98
Not "modernists" as in the kind you'd find in the art world – but instead "mods", of the sort that were the biggest proponents of soul music in mid 60s London! The package is a stellar array of rare soul tracks that all fit right in the best mod vibe that bubbled big for a few key years in the UK – a blend of romping soul, heavy R&B, and groovy jazz numbers that flow together with nonstop energy and a righteous sort of power that was extremely liberating at the time – and which still stuns us all these many years later! And unlike a lot of mod soul sets, this one isn't filled with overdone hits, and instead tries to find more obscure cuts that really fit the mod spirit of the glory days – all rare 60s numbers, but some of which never even circulated much back in the day. Wonderful stuff throughout – a great soul music counterpart to the Mod Jazz series on Kent – with titles that include "Sundown" by The Merced Blue Notes, "Dancing Everywhere" by Bob & Earl, "Soul Is My Game" by Chet Ivey & His Fabulous Avengers, "East Side" by Hank Jacobs, "Jet Set" by Mel Williams, "Ain't That Soul" by Teddy Reynolds, "Go" by Little Johnny Hamilton & The Creators, "Hard Working Girl" by Clarence Daniels & Obie Jessie, "Another Child Lost" by Floyd White, "A Feeling Deep Inside" by The Corvairs, "The Real Thing" by Troy Dodds, "You Should Have Been A Doctor" by Bessie Banks, "I'm Gonna Get You" by Leroy Harris, and "All Around The World" by Chuck Higgins.

VariousSuper Funk Vol 4 – Rare & Classic Street Funk From The Vaults 1966 to 1972 ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 LPs ... $16.99
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! LP, Vinyl record album
