Carla ThomasCarla (180 gram mono pressing) ... LP
Stax, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.99
Carla Thomas' second album for Stax – one of the classiest Memphis albums of the 60s, in a way that already had the young singer setting a new standard for the city's scene! While the early sound of Stax might normally be associated with gritty grooves, bumping and grinding out of the city's small club scene – right from the start, Carla Thomas was a talent who let the label hit a whole new level – able to work her vocals with the cool qualities of some of the bigger New York and Detroit divas of the time, which also seemed to elevate the overall Stax production vibe too. Original tracks are by the Isaac Hayes & David Porter team, and titles include "BABY", "What Have You Got To Offer Me", "I Got You Boy", "Fate", "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry", "I Fall To Pieces", and "Let Me Be Good To You".

Dana ValeryNot The Flower But The Root ... LP
Brunswick, 1972. Sealed ... $38.99
A tremendous bit of Chicago soul – from a very unlikely source! Dana Valery's an Italian singer by birth, and spent some time on the London scene in the 60s – but she soars out here in the best sort of Windy City groove we've come to love from the Brunswick label – a sound and style to rival that of labelmates like Barbara Acklin or Jackie, but with a different sort of twist as well! Given Dana's pedigree, the set's almost her own Chicago-styled version of Dusty Springfield's Memphis recordings – as Valery works with killer Brunswick backings put together by Tom Tom Washington and Sonny Sanders – set to that sublime production that only Carl Davis and Willie Henderson could provide – a studio team who really help pull out the best grooves and deepest soul of all the cuts in the set. Added to the mix is the fact that a host of tracks were penned by Eugene Record – making for a mighty sweet set with titles that include "Lady Lady Lady", "I'm Gonna Pay You Back", "Have You Seen Him", "Oh Boy", "The Fountain", and "This Love Is Real". LP, Vinyl record album

WailersWailing Wailers ... LP
Studio One (UK), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 24.99
Landmark work from The Wailers – the early trio version of the group, with a legendary lineup that includes Peter Tosh and Bob Marley! The style here is different than both Tosh and Marley's music to come, but the sound is already totally top-shelf – a wickedly soulful blend of American soul harmonies and Jamaican rhythms – very well-crafted, mostly with Bob in the lead, but often with the kind of vocal interplay that makes all three members of the group shine in the spotlight, including third member Neville Livingston! The set's an early Studio One treasure, and is proof that Clement Dodd was already on the right track – and musical backing is by The Soul Brothers and Skatalites. Titles include "Lonesome Feelings", "I Need You", "Put It On", "Rude Boy", "Love & Affection", "Simmer Down", "I'm Still Waiting", and "Ten Commandments Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Scott WalkerScott 2 ... LP
Fontana/Universal (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... About October 20, 2017
Amazing! Although Scott Walker had issued one solo album before this one, Scott 2 is the record that really has his true genius beginning to shine through! The record still features Scott singing dark moody takes on 60s pop tunes – like "Best Of Both Worlds" and "Black Sheep Boy" – plus the usual round of Brel tunes – including "Jackie" and "The Girls & The Dogs", but it's also got some of his best songwriting ever, etched out in incredible original compositions like "The Amorous Humphrey Plugg", "The Girls From The Streets", and "Plastic Palace People". Those three songs alone might have been enough if Scott had stopped there in his career – as they're perfectly realized visions that match the world of Brecht, Bergman, and Sartre he'd been steeping himself in. Orchestrations are sublime on all tracks, and the record's one we'll treasure forever! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Scott WalkerScott 4 ... LP
Fontana/Universal (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... About October 20, 2017
A brilliant testament to the songwriting genius of Scott Walker – and an incredibly haunting batch of original tunes, filled with images of lonely madness and unactualized emotion, all sung by one of the greatest voices of the century! The album's not a record to be taken lightly – as the Scott Walker approach to music is really over the top here – almost mini-movies in sound, pasted from scenes both epic and private – all held together by an impeccable set of arrangements! The style beautifully links Walker's older pop persona with the growing sophistication in European pop – especially from the French – and with a record like this, Scott easily matches the genius of Brel, Brassens, and Gainsbourg. All titles are originals – and titles include "Rhymes Of Goodbye", "The Old Man's Back Again", "Hero Of The War", "Boy Child", "Seventh Seal", and "On Your Own Again". LP, Vinyl record album

George Wein's Newport All StarsGeorge Wein's Newport All Stars ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good ... $0.99
Although the name of George Wein is usually associated with some super un-hip trad jazz projects, this album's actually a pretty cool batch of grooves that matches Wein's older jazz tendencies with some newer styles of playing – and some good electric instrumentation on the best cuts. The album's got a super-nice version of "Sunny", plus "Blue Boy", "In A Little Spanish Town", "Topsy", and "Ja Da" – and believe it or not, Wein even plays some electric piano! Players include Red Norvo, Tal Farlow, Larry Ridley, and Barney Kessel. LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & green Broadway label pressing.)

Walt WeiskopfWay You Say It ... CD
Posi tone, 2016. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Tenor, vibes, and organ – a great combination here in the hands of leader Walt Weiskopf, who also wrote most of the tracks on the record! Walt's records have been some of our favorites on the Posi-Tone label in recent years – and here, he works with label heavyweights Behn Gillece on vibes and Brian Charette on Hammond – with drums from Steve Fidyk in a beautifully balanced quartet! Charette's got these long-flowing lines on the Hammond that are both melodically matched and periodically punctuated by Gillece on vibes – with sounds that can brew slowly together, or really take off – as Walt blows these nicely-edged solos throughout! Titles include "Dreamlining", "Separation", "Coffee & Scones", "Envisioned", "Invisible Sun", "Manny Boy", and "The Way You Say It". CD

Mary WellsVintage Stock ... LP
Motown, 1966. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A very strong compilation of some of the best soul that Mary Wells recorded for Motown – and probably her only real album for the label. Although issued in 1966, the material hearkens from earlier days at Motown – and titles include "The One Who Really Loves You", "Two Lovers", "Honey Boy", "My Guy", and "You Beat Me To The Punch". Great for late night listening on a summer night through an open window! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole and some flaking at the bottom.)

✨✧ Andrew WhiteSaxophonitis Wondersax Series Vol 4 – I Love Japan/Have Band Will Travel ... CD
Andrew's Music, 1979. New Copy ... $12.99 14.99
A pair of great records from saxophonist Andrew White – back to back on a single CD! First up is I Love Japan – a great second set from Andrew White's One Step series – a record dedicated to jazz listeners in Japan, but featuring some core elements from the American scene of the postwar years! The group on the album features Blackbyrds Keith Killgo on drums and Kevin Toney on piano, plus excellent bass work by the great Steve Novosel – whose round warm tones really make the album groove! On side one, White really sparkles on some bop tunes, taken to the limit – versions of "Good Bait" and "Parker's Mood" that are handled with rich energy that really shows off his great one. Side two features some incredible versions of John Coltrane material – a take on "Crescent" – plus a "Coltrane Triptych" – with versions of "Some Other Blues", "Blue Train", and "The Sleeper". Have Band Will Travel was recorded as part of Andrew White's One Step series – but one that also has a different feel than some of the others – as it features some shorter tunes that have a bit more straightforward approach than some of his other work! The group on the album features Blackbyrds Keith Killgo on drums and Kevin Toney on piano, plus excellent bass work by the great Steve Novosel – whose round warm tones really make the album groove! Side one features sweet takes on Coltrane tunes "Naima" and "Central Park West" – plus "What's New", "Mahogany", and "Rim Shot". Side two stretches out with the classic "Big Nick" – then offers White's own "Theme Signature" and "Superfly Disco Boy". CD

✨✧ Andrew WhiteSaxophonitis Wondersax Series Vol 5 – Super Bonus Sampler ... CD
Andrew's Music, Mid 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 14.99
Rare tracks from reedman Andrew White's own label – almost all recorded during that mid 70s stretch when White was really on fire, and making some important contributions to the DC jazz scene! White's a hell of a player, and if you've never heard him before, this set's a great place to start – as Andrew can stretch out on an alto like few other folks – as open and spiritual as Coltrane or Dolphy, but also able to step back in and swing when needed too – as you'll hear on the wonderful array of tracks on this set! The work augments the previous four volumes in White's CD series – and we believe these are extra tracks that weren't on those other titles – with players who include Kevin Toney and Donald Waters on piano, Keith Killgo and Bernard Sweetney on drums, and the mighty Steve Novosel on bass throughout. White's in the spotlight on most numbers – blowing amazing solos – on titles that include "Big Nick", "Superfly Disco Boy", "Straight Ahead Blues", "Giant Steps", "Mr PC", "What's New", and "Rim Shot".

✨✧ Deniece WilliamsBlack Butterfly – The Essential Niecy ... CD
Columbia/Big Break (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
A treasure trove of work from Deniece Williams – one of the coolest, classiest soul singers to hit the mainstream at the end of the 70s! Williams has roots that go deep in the Chicago scene – including young work under the name of Deniece Chandler – but this set picks off from the time when she hit Columbia Records as a full-formed adult soul singer – one of the freshest talents of her generation – with an ability to hit some of the spiritual currents of Minnie Riperton, and some of the grooves you might expect from Cheryl Lynn! Both those sides and many more are featured here – in a 35 track set that's overflowing with gems, produced by soul music legends who include Maurice White, Charles Stepney, Thom Bell, Ray Parker Jr, George Duke, Jeff Lorber, and others. Titles include "Baby Baby My Love's All For You", "What Two Can Do", "I Can't Wait", "I'm So Proud", "Black Butterfly", "Silly", "God Is Amazing", "Free", "Healing", "All I Need", "Waiting By The Hotline", "Let's Hear It For The Boy (12" version)", "Do What You Feel (single version)", "When Love Comes Calling", "I've Got The Next Dance (12" version)", "That's What Friends Are For", and "It's Gonna Take A Miracle". Also features duets with Johnny Mathis on "Without Us", "Love Won't Let Me Wait", "Too Much Too Little Too Late", and "You're All I Need To Get By". CD

Nancy WilsonToday, Tomorrow, Forever ... CD
Capitol, 1964. Used ... $8.99
A very groovy set of standards and 60s pop tunes – all done by Nancy in her great soulful swinging style! The record's got far more to offer than you'd guess from the track list, as Nancy's at the height of her early career here – and she's getting backing from a very sympathetic west coast group that includes Jack Wilson on piano and organ, Lou Blackburn on trombone, Bill Perkins on tenor, and Milt Holland on percussion. Titles include "Our Day Will Come", "Call Me Irresponsible", "Go Away, Little Boy", "Tonight May Have To Last Me All My Life", "Unchain My Heart", and "One Note Samba". CD

✨✧ VariousAfter Hours ... LP
King, Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99 9.98
A classic 50s compilation from the legendary King Records – one that really shows off the grittier, bluesier side of their catalog – and features some key crossover cuts from the postwar years too! The music here is a wonderful mix of modes – instrumental R&B, jukebox jazz, and some rootsier blues – all captured with that core intensity that really made King's singles stand out from the rest of the pack – maybe even more than labels like Chess or Vee Jay at the time. The tunes work together wonderfully, in a surprisingly unified vibe – and titles include "Long Gone (parts 1 & 2)" and "Mellow Blues (parts 1 & 2)" by Sonny Thompson, "After Hours" by Jimmy Nolen, "What's New" by Bill Jennings, "Midnight To Dawn" by Earl Bostic, "Ooh Midnight" by Pete Guitar Lewis, "In The Morning" by Washboard Bill, "Eventide" by Bill Doggett, and "Blues For The Red Boy" by Todd Rhodes.

✨✧ VariousBlack Cat Trail ... CD
Mamlish, Late 40s. New Copy ... $11.99 13.99
A great collection of postwar blues – material that springs forth from a wealth of rare 78rpm recordings – and which includes a number of tracks that you may never hear otherwise! The set looks at the sort of records that were pivotal in pushing blues forward in the years after the war – some with changed-up instrumentation, most with new sorts of phrasings that sometimes brought in a jazz level of sophistication, while still keeping things at a rootsy core. Titles include "Murmur Low" by Big Boy Spires, "Vacation Blues" by Johnny Howard, "Bad Woman Blues" by Slim Pickins, "Crying Won't Help You" by Robert Nighthawk, "Walking Down Hill" by Otis Hinton, "Boogie Twist" by Snooky Pryor, "TP Railer" by Black Diamond, "Western Union Man" by Chicago Sunny Boy, and "Black Cat Trail" by Country Paul.

VariousBlack Solidarity Presents – Dance Inna Delamere Avenue ... LP
Jamaican Recordings (UK), Mid 80s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Early dancehall from the Black Solidarity label – all nicely cool cuts, recorded at the label's studio in Delamere Avenue in Kingston! These tracks are pivotal – not the overproduced dancehall of later years, but instead that early version of digital reggae – which still had all the warmth and organic energy of the roots years, and maybe just a bit more of an electro flourish in all the right places – which worked surprisingly well with some of the deeper, dubbier currents in the mix. And despite the small label status of many of these recordings, you'll recognize more than a few crucial names on the cuts – on titles that include "Get Ready" by U Roy, "Bubble Up" by Linval Thompson, "Let Them Prosper" by Al Campbell, "Funny Tricks" by Early B, "Gwaan Go Dance" by Lover Boy, "Each One Teach One" by Sammy Dread, "Cool Youth" by Jolly Stewart, "Rebel Girl" by Robert Ffrench, "Dance Inna Braeton" by Sassafras, and "The Siren" by Phillip Frazier.
