VariousLife Is Dance – Further Plugged-In Adventures From The Pakistani Picture House ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $24.99
Wow! Here's a really far out collection of music from 70s Pakistan – the second volume in great series of Lollywood recordings put together by Finders Keepers – wildly eclectic music that ranges from freaked out, fuzzy psych rock, to rawly percussive funk, spacey synth tunes and numbers with both lovely female vocals and wildly bugged out screams! Finders Keepers excels and digging up great, rare global film music that challenged convention both in its era and all these years later – but it's not novelty stuff, it's genuinely artful and ingenious grooves! Includes "Zambo Zambo" by Tafo feat Nahid Akhtar with Mehdi Hassan & A Nayyar, "Life Is Dance" by Nazir Ali feat Nahid Akhtar & Mehinaz, "Shola Sa Bharka by Tafo feat Nahid Akhtar, "Naughty Boy" by Tafo feat Nahid Akhtar, "Dil Be-Qarar Mangda Ae Payr" by Tafo feat Noor Jehan & Cheeku, "Don't Drink" by Kamal Ahmed feat Noor Jehan and more. 16 tracks in all.

VariousMidwest Funk – Funk 45s From Tornado Alley ... CD
Jazzman/Stones Throw, Late 60s/1970s. Used ... $9.99
Quite possibly one of the greatest funk compilations ever – and we're not just saying that because we're from the Midwest! The genius compilers at Jazzman spent years scouring the smaller cities of the American hinterlands – tracking down obscure musicians, long-lost labels, and nearly-gone master tapes – all to bring together 23 bits of rare funk that bristle with the same energy and excitement as the day they were first recorded! The package is incredible – not only filled with incredible tunes that somehow manage to push the boundaries and redefine our understanding of classic funk from the time, but also doing so in a package that's filled with liner notes that offer more information on the artists than probably their own mothers know! Plus, the set's also got some previously unissued numbers as well – making it a must-have for any funk fan, even if you've somehow managed to track down original copies of some of these choice bits! Titles include "Whip It" by The New Establishment In Soul, "Let's Do It Today (full version)" by The Us, "Pushin To The Top" by Markus Kelly & The Impassions, "Sissy Walk" by Billy Ball & The Upsetters, "Tell Her" by Fred Williams & The Jewels Band, "The Hatch" by The TMGs, "Boots Groove" by The Soul Tornados, "Po Boy's Dream" by Illinois Connection, "It's Not You For Me (live)" by Billy Joe Holloman, "Funky In Here" by Dayton Sidewinders, "Master Groove" by Henry Peters & The Imperials, and "A Day In The Life" by Chocolate Snow.

VariousMoods In Jazz/Reflections In Jazz ... CD
Tampa/VSOP, Mid 50s. Used ... $9.99
A great reissue that pairs together 2 obscure west coast sides from the 50s – both of them featuring some of the scene's best players, caught in a very different setting! The first 6 tracks on the set are from a 10" LP that originally appeared on the Skylark label under the leadership of drummer George Redman. Redman's playing and leadership are fine, but the real strength of the set is its work by Bob Gordon on tenor sax and Herbie Harper on trombone – coming together here beautifully in the deft style used often on the Nocturne recordings by both players. Titles include "Babette", "Sonny Boy", "Moer Blues", "Slow Mood", and "Just George". The remaining 5 tracks on the set are from Reflections In Jazz – an even hipper set led by Bob Enevoldsen on both valve trombone and tenor – and featuring Marty Paich on piano and accordion, Larry Bunker on vibes, and Red Mitchell on bass. Enevoldsen's work on the valve trombone is really great here – as well-spaced and timed as that of Bob Brookmeyer in the period – but also given some interesting inflections, due to the use of vibes and accordion, which seem to bring out even more harmonics in the session. Titles include "Topsy", "Loaded With Bass", "Iron Works", "Blues & Rhythm", and "Don't Be That Way". CD

VariousMore Ballroom Kings ... CD
RCA/Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $14.99 28.98
Cool cuts from the early 50s years of country music – material that follows in the wake of Pee Wee King's popular work, and which mixes equal parts honky tonk, western swing, and some pre-rock use of electric guitar! The rhythms are strong throughout – romping and very groovy – and the lyrics often follow suit, too – with all the best playful energy that RCA brought to its excellent country catalog at the time. King's featured in a number of tracks here, but the real treats are some of the lesser-known artists – who really illuminate our understanding of these 50s country years – and as usual, Bear Family have included plenty of notes and session details to enrich our knowledge of the scene. Titles include "Hadacol Boogie" by Jesse Rogers & His 49'ers, "You Played On My Piano" by Hank Penny, "Waxahachie Dishwasher Boy" by Jim Boyd & His Men Of The West, "Jaw Jaw Yap Yap Yap" by Texas Jim Robertson & His Panhandle Punchers, "I Feel Like The Blues Comin On" by Elton Britt, "Old McDonald's Boogie" by Johnny Tyler & His Riders Of The Rio Grande, "Seven Come Eleven" by Pee Wee King, and "Honey Honey Mine" by Hal Lone Pine & His Mountaineers.

VariousNew Spirit Of Capitol ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $8.99
A great collection of all things hip on Capitol at the end of the 60s – some of the label's headiest rockers, plus a few more bits from left field! The album has a great trippy cover of a long-armed dude playing piano in a very Peter Max sort of pose – and titles include "Broke & Hungry" by Guitar Jr, "A Little Girl Lost" by David Axelrod, "Boy Soldier" by Edgar Broughton Band, "Jamie" by Hedge & Donna, "Little Girl" by Steve Miller, "Red Cross Store" by Mississippi Fred McDowell, and "It's Time" by The Sons.

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 (with bonus Spanglish Fly CD) ... CD
Rough Guide, 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99 14.98
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. Also features a bonus CD from Spanglish Fly – Let My People Boogaloo – a collection of work from the group's early years! CD

VariousStar Talent Records Story ... CD
Airline, Early 50s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A great document of a tiny little label – one based in Dallas at the start of the 50s, but an imprint that also gave important early exposure to artists from Memphis and New Orleans too! The collection is a much-needed look at Star Talent, and related Talent label – both companies who only issued a handful of 78s, but were years ahead of their time in recording artists like Rufus Thomas and Professor Longhair – as well as a key batch of down-home Texas blues artists too! Styles here run from raw acoustic blues to some wicked R&B work – and the collection's got a great set of notes that also tell the full tale of the label, and its relationship with these artists. Titles include "I Treated You Wrong" by Rattlesnake Cooper, "I'm So Worried" and "I'll Be A Good Boy" by Rufus Thomas, "Black Cat Rag" and "Howling Wolf Blues" by Willie Lane, "My Walking Baby" by Cha Cha Hogan, "Mardi Gras In New Orleans" and "She Ain't Go No Hair" by Professor Longhair, "Rhythm Blues" by Sonny Boy Davis, and "Rattlesnake Blues" by Rattlesnake Cooper.

VariousSunshine Girls – TK Deep Soul ... CD
Sequel (UK), 1970s. Used ... $11.99
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.

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!

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.

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 (delayed)
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.

HanaOla/Be With (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... About August 7, 2015 (delayed)
Cypriano is a Hawaiian singer and this record has many references to beach culture and Hawaiian place names. She does a few covers like "Dancing In The Streets" that can easily be dismissed but there are some nice tracks that have a little bit of a disco feel to them like "Moon Of Manakoora" and then some other songs with a slower tempo like "Livin Without You" which are pretty and pleasant. Other titles are "Island Boy", "Mystery Blue", "Lihue", "South Sea Island Music", and a version of "You Are So Beautiful" sung in Hawaiian. LP, Vinyl record album

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
Also available Blue Moods ... CD 6.99
