VariousNorthern Soul's Classiest Rarities Vol 5 – A Spicy Mix Of Unissuded, Collector's Items, Super Rarities & Hard To Find Favourites ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Rare soul, with a really great approach – cuts that aren't the usual hits or Northern Soul rarities – and which instead lie in a special space of their own! The title's a reference to the care with which these cuts were put together – not just in the vocals, but also the arrangements – which are usually a cut above, and manage to groove while still adding in larger charts and fuller backings – often at a level that reflects the California origin of many of these tracks, but also echoed by artists from other scenes as well! All of the tracks are super-rare – and a good number are issued here for the first time – handled with that perfect Ace/Kent style, right down to the detailed liner notes too. Titles include "Just Another Smile" by Mel Davis, "When The Boy That You Love" by The Avons, "Hang Around" by Marva Holiday, "They Didn't Know" by Terri Goodnight, "Losing Control" by Mary Saxton, "If You Don't Know" by The Dialtones, "Do The Popcorn" by Little Johnny Hamilton, "Break Someone Else's Heart" by Jeanette Jones, "This Man Wants You" by Jesse Cowan, "It Ain't No Achievement" by The Millionaires, "Butterfly" by The Ballads, and "I'm Sending Vibrations" by The Webb People.

VariousRhythm N Bluesin By The Bayou – Mad Dogs, Sweet Daddies, & Pretty Babies ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... $14.99
Genius work from the Louisiana scene – all cuts that go way way deeper than the familiar sounds of New Orleans soul – and which are pulled from the darkest reaches of the bayou, to include a lot of work that was never issued at the time! The package is maybe the best so far in this Bayou series from Ace – as it moves far past familiar artists, and even rare collectable singles – to go for under-issued, hardly-circulated records that really get at the unique feel of this scene in the late 50s and early 60s. New Orleans triplets start out some of the grooves, but the work also draws heavily on Texas blues, Mississippi roots, and lots more – in a wicked batch of tracks that include "Hello Baby What You Know" by Leroy Washington, "Hoo Wee Sweet Daddy" by Katie Webster, "Papa Lou & Gran" by Little Victor & His Orchestra, "Mad Dog" by Mad Dog Sheffield, "I Called You Up Daddy" by Anna Mae Rogers, "Long Way From Home" by Guitar Gable, "One More Chance (alt)" by Carol Fran, "Pretty Woman" by Lester Robinson, "You Know Yeah" by Wonder Boy Travis, "A Merry Christmas" by Sad Leroy White, "Rooty Tooty" by Lionel Torrence, "I'll Never Hold It Against You" by Clarence Garlow, and "I Need Your Love" by Jimmy Dotson.

VariousRough Guide To Latin Rare Groove (180 gram vinyl – with download) (2014 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Rough Guide, 2014. New Copy ... $18.99
A wicked little set that really gets at the way that Latin record collecting has moved way past the usual sounds from New York, Puerto Rico, and Cuba – to embrace a whole host of styles from around the globe! In a world of collections that feature oft-reissued numbers from the Fania catalog, this set goes way further to dig up a whole host of gems from north and south of the border – and even a few from the other side of the Atlantic as well – mostly older numbers, but also including a few contemporary cuts that fit well alongside the vintage numbers. Pablo Yglesias handled the track selection, with the same quality he brings to other Latin projects too – and titles include "Bamba Cure" by Mario Allison, "No Pago Na" by Alfredo Gutierrez, "Esa Mujer" by Los Kenya, "Denisth" by Grupo 2000, "Funky Tumbao" by Setenta, "My Shingaling Boy" by Spanglish Fly, "Domingo Por La Manana" by Carlos Pickling, "Black Shadow" by Orchestra Dee Jay, "Pensamiento" by Piper Pimienta, "Do You Want To Be Free" by Gilberto Sextet, and "Chevere" by Joe Quijana.

VariousStill Groove Jumping – 16 Classic Rockin R&B Tracks From RCA's Groove Label ... CD
RCA/Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $19.99 28.98
A cool collection of work from RCA's great Groove subsidiary in the 50s – home to some excellent R&B singles that were a far cry from the label's mainstream pop of the time! These cuts easily stand head to head with anything on labels like Atlantic or King at the time – and the collection unearths a whole host of tracks we'd never heard before – some rough and blusey, some with a tighter edge that's definitely at the best level of the pre-soul generation! The bluesy numbers are especially great – recorded at a level you'd never expect from RCA, at least not since the 30s – and often have these raw guitar lines that ring out like something you might hear from the Chess studios at the time. The set features great notes, with session details on the tracks – and titles include "High Low Jack" by Buddy Lucas, "Down To The Bottom" and "You Better Heed My Warning" by Larry Dale, "All My Life" by Roy Guitar Gaines, "Peek A Boo" by Mr Bear, "Rockin With Red" by Piano Red, "Drink Up" by The Du Droppers, "Country Boy" by Tiny Kennedy, "She's Got No Hair" by Arthur Crudup, and "When I Got Married" by Champion Jack Dupree.

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ 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.

VariousTav Falco's Wild & Exotic World Of Musical Obscurities ... CD
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
A weird and wild batch of tunes put together by Memphis legend Tav Falco – some of which are the heavy guitar cuts you'd expect, mixed with others that are surprising pop oddities from the 50s! The track list is nice and big – which leaves plenty of room for unusual choices and free play between the different styles – and Falco wrote the liner notes himself, at a level that really illuminates some of these unusual tunes! Titles include "I'm Doubtful Of Your Love" by Benny Joy, "It's All Your Fault" by Bobby Lee Trammell, "Warrior Sam" by Don Willis, "I'm Gonna Dig Myself A Hole" by Arthur Big Boy Crudup, "She's The One That's Got It" by Allen Page, "Harry Lime Theme" by Anton Karas, "Donauwellen" by Alexander Princes, "Guarda Che Luna" by Fred Buscaglione, "Desde El Alma" by Osvaldo Pugliese, "Jungle Fever" by Charlie Feathers, and "Real Cool Trash" by Tav himself.

Tasty soul singles from the later years of the Vee Jay label – including a few gems that we've only ever found on 45, plus a few other numbers by some of their bigger artists. Titles include "Make Up Your Mind" by Barrett Strong, "Let's Do It Over" by Joe Simon, "May I" by Maurice Williams & The Zodiacs, "You Can't Take It Away" by Fred Hughes, "Watch Over Her" by Wade Flemons, "Spring" by Birdlegs & Pauline, "Giving Up On Love" by Jerry Butler, "I Knew You When" by Wade Flemons, "Young Boy" by Barbara Greene, "Tell The World" by The Dontells, and "Whisper Of The Wind" by The Daylighters.

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 ... $24.99
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!

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.

Miles DavisBlue Moods ... LP
OJC, 1955. New Copy (reissue)... On June 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

John FaheyJohn Fahey Volume 1 – Blind Joe Death (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Takoma/4 Men With Beards, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... On June 10, 2015
The seminal debut of the great John Fahey – posing here as Blind Joe Death – an acoustic guitarist whose bluesy undercurrents showcase Fahey's love of early recorded music! The style is pure Fahey throughout – those magical tones that cascade effortlessly off the heavily-plucked strings of his guitar – echoing older blues and folk modes, but never in a way that's stereotypical – and which is already woven through with the kind of sonorities that continued to make Fahey such an important artist over the years. Think of the set as a skewed version of American history – filtered through one mind and one set of hands – and you'll be well on the way to understanding the power of this music. The set features songs penned by Fahey, and redone versions of older numbers – and tracks include "West Coast Blues", "St. Louis Blues", "I'm A Poor Boy Far Away From Home", "John Hardy", "Transcendental Waterfall", "Desperate Man Blues", "Sun Gonna Shine In My Back Door", and "On Doing An Evil Deed Blues".

HeptonesNight Food/Party Time ... CD
Island (Japan), 1976/1977. New Copy ... On July 1, 2015
CD two-fer combining the classic 70s Heptones sides Night Food and Party Time, two of the band's strongest albums. The first set was cut at Harry J's, and is a bit more produced than some of their earlier sides, but has some great vocal harmonies and updates of awesome Studio One rhythms, which originated with bass player and lead singer Leroy Sibbles. The follow up, Party Time, finds the Heptones teaming up with Lee Perry for a wonderful set laid down at the legendary Black Ark, with Sibbles' always great songwriting over a set of nice roots rhythms laid down by Boris Gardiner, Winston Wright, Mikey Boo, Willie Lindo and others. Includes "Country Boy", "Book Of Rules", "Love Won't Come Easy", "Fatty Fatty" and "Mama Say", "Party Time", "Crying Over You", "I Shall Be Released", "Why Must I" and "Sufferer's Time", 20 tracks in all.

Milt JacksonJazz N Samba ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... On June 17, 2015
This may not be Milt Jackson's purest album – but oh how we love it! Milt's working here more in a Verve pop jazz mode than a highbrow third stream one – with bossa backings on about half the album, and good small combo work on the rest. Side one features Jimmy Heath on tenor, Tommy Flanagan on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Connie Kay on drums – all grooving nicely next to Milt's vibes on tracks like "Blues For Juanita", "Gingerbread Boy", and "Big George". The real charmer, though, is side two – which has Milt playing with the same group, minus Flanagan, plus 2 guitarists for that bossa sound. Lillian Clark sings vocals on 2 cuts – "Jazz N Samba" and "Kiss & Run" – and the side also features the great groover "Jazz Bossa Nova", and the incredible "The Oo-Oo Bossa Nova", which features Joe E Ross from Car 54 going "Oo Oo!" on the breakdowns!

Wanda JacksonRockin' With Wanda ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... On July 22, 2015
One of the best rock and/or country LPs of the late 50s and early 60s! Capitol signed the rockabilly rebel princess several years prior to the release of this collection of her jumpy, frenetic singles, and had Wanda record more crossover material, which she succeeded at in incredible fashion. That left Capitol to finally release a record of her earlier trademark style, and boy it's a doozy! You get "Fujiyama Mama", one of the most incendiary unsung rock and roll singles of all time, plus other great ones like "Rock You Baby", "Cool Love", "Honey Bop", "Baby Loves Him", "Mean Mean Man", "You've Turned To A Stranger" and bonus tracks including "Sinful Heart" and "I'd Rather Have You". Sweet, but feral honky tonk rockers of the first order! CD

Os MutantesDivina Comedia Ou Ando Meio Desligado ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... On June 10, 2015
The third album from the legendary Os Mutantes – part of the essential trio of sides released during the Tropicalia years! The record's got a sound that's tighter and a bit more straightforward than their previous efforts – stricter song formats, and styles that lean heavily on rockish guitars and organ. But as the odd cover images on the front and back will attest, the band is still in a very creatively arty mode here – still working strongly with arranger Rogerio Duprat, in a wash of sounds and moods that fold contemporary music back upon itself with plenty of odd twists, turns, and surprises! Titles include "Desculpe Baby", "Oh Mulher Infiel", "Quem Tem Medo De Brincar De Amor", "Hey Boy", "Halleluia", "Ave, Lucifer", and "Meu Refrigerador Nao Funciona". CD

Bernie SenenskyNew Life ... LP
PM, 1975. New Copy ... On March 1, 2015 (delayed)
A wonderful little record from Canadian pianist Bernie Senensky – his first as a leader, and an incredibly strong debut that's filled with life, love, and a keen sense of imagination! The tracks are all originals penned by Bernie, and the set's recorded in a spacious, open style that's very much in keeping with other jazz work at the time on the PM label – but done in a mode that's gentler and sweeter than some of the heavier-hitting jams that PM was known for. Senensky's got a wonderful ear for a lyrical tune – and many of the numbers on the set leap along in a lively mode that gives the album a few great jazz dancers. Bass is by Michel Donato, drums are by Marty Morell – and titles include "Poochie", "Lolito's Theme", "Little Waltz For A Little Boy", "BB", and "Another Gift". LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1963. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Just to get things straight: Ann's the Beauty and Al's the Beard – and they're paired together in this surprisingly tasty set that stands as one of Ann's jazziest albums for RCA! Part of the strength is from arranger Marty Paich, who has Al's trumpet and Ann's voice working with a small group that includes Red Norvo on vibes and Al Hendrickson on guitar. Tunes are a bit laidback, especially for Ann – and titles include "Mutual Admiration Society", "Personality", "My Baby Just Cares For Me", "Little Boy", and "The Best Man". LP, Vinyl record album
