VariousStudio One Women ... LP
Soul Jazz/Studio One (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99
Ahh yes!! Not only is this latest installment in the unstoppable Studio One series on Soul Jazz up to par with the earlier sets, it pushes the whole vibe up a notch with one of the most distinctive collections of material yet! You may not imagine that with the women theme, but the breadth of material here is matched by its depth and overall badness. Whether it's smoldering rocksteady cuts, heavy roots era material or more modern jams, this collection digs up the finest and fattest numbers voiced by women for Coxsone Dodd. 16 numbers in all, including "A Deh Pon Dem" and "King Street" by the Soulettes, "My Man" and "I Am In Love" by Jennifer Lara, "Tell Me Now" by Marcia Griffiths, "Give Love Another Try" by Claudette McLean, "Dream Land" by Della Humphrey, "War No Right" by Denise Darlington, "I'm Just A Girl" by Hortense Ellis, and "You A Fool Boy" and "No Bother With No Fuss" by Angela Prince.

VariousSunshine Girls – TK Deep Soul ... CD
Sequel (UK), 1970s. Used ... $13.99
A great set of southern soul tracks by female singers – the deeper soul legacy of the TK family of labels, better known for their more famous disco hits, but a key link in the southern soul history of the 60s and 70s – as the sites of production moved from Memphis and Muscle Shoals down to Jackson, Miss and Miami, the home of TK. The 15 track set's a great batch of smooth diva soul tracks – showing the more modern side of the southern scene, with a lot of styles that will remind you of some of Atlantic Records' female singers of the time. Tracks include "Your Real Good Thing's About To Come To An End", "God Bless This Man Of Mine", "Secret Lover", and "Jazz Freak" by Paulette Reaves; "Make Me Feel Like A Woman", "Puttin It Down To You", and "It's Harder to Leave" by Jackie Moore; "Loving You Loving Me" by Ann Sexton; "I'll Be Right Here" and "A Man & A Baby Boy" by Ruby Wilson & The Blue Chips; and "One Woman's Trash Is Another Woman's Treasure" by Brandye.

VariousSuperbad Vol 1 – The Very Best Of Blaxploitation, 70s Movie Themes & Funk Soul Classics ... LP
Warner (UK), 1970s. Very Good+ 2LP ... $24.99
A classic package of 70s grooves – despite a cloying title and cover image! The set recalls the glory days of the legendary Superbad and Superbad Is Back compilations – and brings together a rich assortment of 70s funky soul that spans the gamut from hit movie themes, classic radio tracks, and other under-discovered gems that have since gone onto become classics through their use in hip hop samples! 2LP set features 15 titles that include "Bring Down The Birds" by Herbie Hancock, "Bullitt" by Lalo Schifrin, "Harlem Clavinette" by JJ Johnson, "Little Ghetto Boy" by Donny Hathaway, "Be Thankful For What You Got" by William De Vaughn, and "Sweetback's Theme" by Earth Wind & Fire. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousSweet Things From The Ellie Greenwich & Jeff Barry Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the greatest songwriting teams of the 60s – featured here in a treasure trove of singles and album tracks that really show the duo at their best! This is the third in Ace's series on the team of Ellie Greenwich and Jeff Barry, but it may well be the best so far – as the tunes are sometimes a bit more obscure, and move past the hits to show the incredible reach that the pair had in music in the mid 60s – talents that touched both soul and rock groups equally, and which have this subtle emotive power that goes way past fluffy themes from mainstream pop! As usual, Ace has given us a beautiful package – loads of notes on each track, and a stunning set list that include "I'm Nobody's Baby Now" by Reparata & The Delrons, "Our Love Can Still Be Saved" by Jeff Barry, "Whisper Sweet Things" by The Jelly Beans, "Why Do Lovers Break Each Other's Hearts" by Bob B Soxx & The Blue Jeans, "He's Got The Power" by The Exciters, "Friday" by Jay & The Americans, "Dance Marie" by Vic Donna, "Another Boy Like Mine" by The Raindrops, "Spring Fever" by Tony Pass, "Heaven Only Knows" by The Shangri-Las, and "Sugar Sugar" by Wilson Pickett.

VariousWhen The Sun Sets Over Carlton – Melbourne's Countercultural Inner City Rock Scene Of The 70s ... CD
Festival/Warner (Australia), Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99
A very cool collection of work from the Australian scene of the 70s – most of which we'd never heard before! This material isn't totally underground – but given the separation of space between Melbourne and the rest of the world at the time, the collection is an under-tapped vein of really creative material from a scene that cared little about standard labels, conventional styles, or even much of a wider audience! Bits of glammy styles, early punk, and other familiar modes show their heads from time to time – but overall, there's a really individual spirit to most of the groups and their music – styles and a quality level that could climb big on the charts, but hardly cared if they made it or not. The package features great notes on the Melbourne scene and the bands at the time – and titles include "I Love My Car" by Martin Arminger, "Rozalyn" by Stiletto, "I See Red" by The Dots, "Only The Lonely Hearted" by Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons, "Saturday Night" by Daddy Cool, "Who Listens To The Radio" by The Sports, "Hard Drugs" by Mighty Kong, "Carlton (Lygon Street Limbo)" by Skyhooks, "Comin Back For More" by Mark Gillespie, "The Bright Boy" by Eric Gradman Man & Machine, "I'll Be A Dag For You Baby" by Fabulous Nudes, and "Roll That Reefer" by Captain Matchbox Whoopee Band. 45 tracks in all!

✨✧ VariousWhere Southern Soul Began Vol 3 – 1957-1963 – History Of Soul ... CD
History Of Soul (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
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.

VariousWow Baby Wow – 1950s R&B, Blues, & Gospel From Dolphin's Of Hollywood ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 50s. New Copy ... $16.99
Wonderful wonderful music from one of the greatest sources for west coast R&B in the 50s – producer John Dolphin, who also owned a legendary record store too – and really knew his way around a groove! The set collections some rare 78s from Dolphin's mini-empire in LA – including a lot of tracks on CD for the first time ever, and a good number of never-issued gems too – all with that tight, careful approach to the music that made Dolphin such an early genius – a guy who put out records that were years ahead of their time, and which really helped pave the way for 60s soul! There's plenty of jazzy elements in the backings, but the overall execution is very soulful and bluesy – with a lot more bite than some of the more polished LA material of the time. 24 tracks in all – with titles that include "Teenagers Only" by Little Margie, "I Need The Lord To Guide Me Every Day" by Brother Prince Dixon, "All Messed Up" by Vernon Anders, "Don't Blooper" by Grady Chapman, "Elaine" by Scatman Crothers, "Heavy Artillery" by Big Boy Groves, "I Walk All Night" by Johnny Fuller, "Oh Baby" by Floyd Dixon, "Lonely Lonely Woman" by Little Eve, "My Love Is Real" by James Reed, "Hey Rube" by The Mellow Tones, and "Fancy Pants" by Tap Anthony.

ZZ TopFandango ... CD
Warner, 1975. Used ... $1.99
Texas boogie badassery from the great ZZ Top – the follow-up to the absolutely killer Tres Hombres! One side features the trio doing what it does best – slaying a live audience, this one at The Warehouse in New Orleans – and the other side features a handful of hard grooving studio tracks. Here ZZ Top proudly promises "hot, spontaneous and presented to you honestly, without the assistance of studio gimmicks." Later on they'd wholy embrace those gimmicks, but boy, did they ever kill it in the mid 70s without that stuff! Includes "Thunderbird", the greasy "Backdoor Medley", "Nasty Dogs And Funky King", "Tush" and more. CD

CrystalsHe's A Rebel ... CD
Philles/Sony (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... About August 26, 2015
The second album by The Crystals – and a glorious batch of prime girl group grooves produced by Phil Spector! The He's A Rebel album is essentially a new version of the rare Twist Uptown from the previous year – one that gave the group a better shot at reaching a huge audience, thanks to the success of the title track as a single. It's as perfect of a set of early 60s pop as you could ask for – sung beautifully by The Crystals – and a prime collection of iconic Spector-produced/Wrecking Crew-played/Brill Building-penned classics. This album also includes the surface-sweet, though dark underneath "He Hit Me (It Felt Like A Kiss)" – plus the Wall Of Sound classics "Uptown", "Oh Yeah, Maybe Baby", "He's Sure The Boy I Love", "What A Way To Turn Seventeen", "I Love You Eddie" and more.

Miles DavisBlue Moods ... LP
OJC, 1955. New Copy (reissue)... On October 30, 2015
An odd little session for Miles Davis – playing here with a great group, but one that's made up of musicians who are all uncommon sidemen for him, even at this early point in his career! Britt Woodman (a nom-du-date?) is on trombone, and Charles Mingus and Elvin Jones are in the rhythm section – plus Teddy Charles' vibes where you might expect a piano. As you might guess from the title and instrumentation, the set has more to do with Miles' more contemplative explorations of the time – his "blue moods" – than his more upbeat boppish styles, but that's where Charles' vibes come in and really make the set a great one. The group runs through a nice set of laidback, cool renditions of the tunes "Nature Boy", "Alone Together", "There's No You" and "Easy Living" – all done in nice longer takes! LP, Vinyl record album

Digital UndergroundSex Packets ... LP
Tommy Boy/Rhino, 1990. New Copy (reissue)... On August 14, 2015
Digital Underground's first album of P-Funky, hook heavy, party rockin hip hop for Tommy Boy! The first two albums by Shock G and the rest of the crew are classics, even if they don't get enough always get the props – possibly because the well the well of P-Funk samples wasn't necessarily the freshest waters, and also because the "Humpty Dance" was such a crossover smash, but few through a party like Digital Underground at the dawn of the 90s, and it's fresh and funky all these years later. Titles include the hit "Doowutchyalike" and the mega hit "Humpty Dance", plus "Freaks of the Industry", "Doowutchyalike", "The Way We Swing", plus "Sex Packets", "Street Scene", "Packet Man", "Underwater Rimes (rmx)", 'The New Jazz", "Rhymin On The Funk", 'The Danger Zone" and "Packet Reprise".

John FaheyJohn Fahey Volume 3 – The Dance Of Death & Other Plantation Favorites (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Takoma/4 Men With Beards, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... About August 10, 2015
Third volume of fingerstyle explorations of traditional folk and blues blasted off into the stratosphere by the man who virtually invented an entire sub-genre of six string antics. Now rightly viewed as seminal stuff. As the title indicates, and like others in this series a batch of death-centric themes for guitar, with 11 numbers in all, including "Wine & Roses", "How Long", "On The Banks Of The Owchita", 'Worried Blues", "What The Sun Said", "Revelation On The Banks Of The Pawtuxent", "Poor Boy", "Variations On The Coocoo", "The Last Steam Engine Train", "Give Me Corn Bread When I'm Hungry" and "Dance Of Death".

Marvin GayeTribute To The Great Nat King Cole ... CD
Tamla/Universal (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... About August 5, 2015
Marvin Gaye shows another wonderful side of his talents in the early Motown years – a classy, crooing approach that was perfect for this tribute to Nat King Cole! There's a great mix of jazz and soul going on here that's a bit different than some of Marvin's other Motown work of the 60s – and although some tracks are quite Cole-like at times, with a surprisingly accurate approximation of Nat's style – there's plenty others that almost seem to point towards the growing sophistication in Gaye's style that would emerge more strongly at the end of the 60s. Titles include "Straighten Up & Fly Right", "Nature Boy", "Unforgettable", "Send For Me", and a pretty great reading of "Calypso Blues", with a nice stepping groove! CD

Al GreenBelle Album ... LP
Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1977. New Copy ... On September 29, 2015
Al takes over the whole deal with this one – as the record features him writing, producing, arranging, and even playing lead guitar! Of course, he gets a bit of help – from Fred Jordan and Reuben Fairfax, whose names are hidden in smaller type, under the message on the back that says that the record is "something new". Well, it doesn't have Willie Mitchell, that's for dang sure. Al's voice is always nice and pretty, and the record's still got some really nice moments! Titles include "All N All", "Belle", "Loving You", "Georgia Boy", "Feels Like Summer" and "Dream". LP, Vinyl record album

Donny Hathaway/Quincy JonesCome Back Charleston Blue ... CD
Atco (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... About September 9, 2015
An unusual career in the Atlantic career of Donny Hathaway – and a unique collaboration with the legendary Quincy Jones! The music here is Hathaway's sole entry into the blacksploitation soundtrack genre of the 70s – penned for film version of a Chester Himes novel, and scored in a mix of funky 70s modes and other more standard jazz styles. Quincy's on board as the "musical supervisor" – and clearly helps Donny focus his energies towards the hipper side of the soundtrack spectrum, especially on the more contemporary styled tracks. And although most of the work here is instrumental, Hathaway also sings a bit too – most famously on the classic "Little Ghetto Boy" – which is easily one of Donny's greatest tracks ever! Other titles include "Come Back Charleston Blue", with vocals by Margie Joseph, plus "Bossa Nova", "Tim's High", "Hearse To Graveyard", "Harlem Dawn", "String Segue", "Furniture Truck", and "Liberation".

ImpressionsImpressions (1963) ... CD
ABC/Universal (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... About August 25, 2015
Fantastic soul from the Chicago scene of the 60s – the legendary first ABC album by Curtis Mayfield and The Impressions! Although the group first broke big on Vee Jay Records, it was at ABC that their genius really took flight – tightening up the harmonies of the earlier singles, and hitting a mode that was a lot more soul than the doo wop of their roots! The sound here is a great bridge between the two eras of the group's career – and a number of the best tracks here are done in a mellow, gentle sort of way that relies heavily on the harmonies – crackling out with beautifully human sounds throughout. Nearly every tune is an original by Curtis Mayfield – and there's not a spot of filler on the album! Titles include "Minstrel & Queen", "Gypsy Woman", "Never Let Me Go", "Sad Sad Girl & Boy", "Little Young Lover", "Can't You See", and "I Need Your Love". Nice cover, too – with Curtis smiling the biggest ol' bucktoothed smile you'll ever see! CD also features one bonus track – "It's All Right". CD

Pixies ThreeParty With The Pixies Three ... CD
Mercury (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... About August 25, 2015
A record that's as lively as its title and its cover – a set of party-heavy girl group tracks by The Pixies Three – a lesser-remembered trio that's still plenty darn fab! The Pixies have a sound that's perhaps a bit more skittish, and sometimes a bit more rough than some of their contemporaries in the mid 60s – but that's also a big part of the delight here, because the sound of the set is slightly off kilter on most numbers – kind of like looking at familiar girl group pop with a slightly skewed vision. The approach makes for a pretty great little album, especially when all the tracks are taken together – and titles include "442 Glendwood Avenue", "Party Party Party", "Birthday Party", "After The Party", "Brand New Boy", "House Party", and "Welcome To The Party". CD also features 8 more bonus tracks that include "Orphan Boy", "Summertime USA", "The Hootch", "Cold Cold Winter", "Our Love", and "Your Way". CD

A fantastic album from Smokey and the crew! The record features insanely wonderful lead vocals by Smokey, on a lot of tracks that are less familiar than the big hits – but still really really wonderful. Backing by the group is great, too – and the overall sound is extremely sweet harmony soul, with a perfect Motown set of arrangements behind the band. Titles include "Can You Love A Poor Boy", "Baby Baby", "I'm The One You Need", "Save Me", "Oh Be My Love", and "Swept For You Baby". CD
