VariousGreat Googa Mooga – These Words Don't Make No Sense ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... About July 1, 2016 (delayed)
An instant party throughout – a bubbling set of R&B and soul tracks with a focus on goofy lyrics and nonsensical bits! The tracks here really unlock the grooviest part of older R&B styles – the hard-hitting sounds that have been compiled on sets like Stompin over the years, distilled down into one great 27 track set – complete with the high standards for sound quality and liner notes we've come to expect from the Ace label! Pop this one in the CD player, crack open a few beers, and we can guarantee there won't be a stick of furniture left standing in the house by the end! Titles include "Um Bow Bow" by The Bobbettes, "Yama Yama Pretty Mama" by Richard Berry, "Bip Bop Bip" by Pretty Boy, "Ookey Ook" by The Penguins, "Great Googa Mooga" by Tom & Jerrio, "Rubber Biscuit" by The Chips, "Jambo" by Claude McLin, "Ay La Bay" by Dolly Cooper, "Shimmy Shimmy Ko Ko Bop" by Little Anthony & The Imperials, "Voodoo Voodoo" by Lavern Baker, and "Boom Pacha Boom" by Billy Byrd & His Penguins.

VariousShreveport Southern Soul – The Murco Story ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... About July 1, 2016 (delayed)
Not New Orelans, but the Shreveport scene – the other side of Louisiana soul in the 60s, music with a very different sound than Crescent City soul! The Shreveport sound was much more in keeping with styles heard in other southern cities – Jackson, Memphis, Muscle Shoals, and beyond – and the work on this set comes from the labels run by producer Dee Marais – Murco, Peermont, and Hy Sign. Most tracks were recorded during the late 60s, and together, they serve up a blistering set of deep soul numbers with killer female vocals, rough and ready rhythm, and some really spiritual sounding male singers. 26 tracks in all – with titles that include "It's Not That Easy" and "Actions Speak Louder Than Words" by Reuben Bell, "Got Nobody To Love" and "Try Love" by Dori Grayson, "Not Guilty" by Marion Esther, "Losin Boy" and "Love With A Feeling" by Eddy Giles, "A Sad Sad Song" by Charles Crawford, "Got To Get Me A Job" by Ann Alford, "I'm Comin Home" by Marcus Brown, "Sweet Lovin Man" by Dori Grayson, and "Let Me Be The Fool" by Abe & Marion Esther & The Casanovas.

Columbia, 1968. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
One of the group's greatest moments – thanks in part to sweet Cali production from Gary Usher! Titles include "You Ain't Going Nowhere", "Hickory Wind", "Life In Prison", "Blue Canadian Rockies", "Pretty Boy Floyd", "You're Still On My Mind", and "Nothing Was Delivered". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ NirvanaStory Of Simon Simopath (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Island/Universal, 1967. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Tremendous! This album is one of the few relics cut by the British group Nirvana – a late 60s ensemble that is not to be confused with the more famous Seattle one – a really cool combo who are way more than the usual pop psych of the time – and have so many great twists and turns of their own! The set's a brilliant batch of baroque and trippy tunes – presented as a "science fiction pantomime", but coming off more like a series of fab pop tunes that kind of crossup Brit Invasion and California Sunshine Pop sensibilities. The great Syd Dale (of KPM fame) handled the arrangements, so the album's got a nice extra-groovy punch – and titles include "We Can Help You", "Satellite Jockey", "Lonely Boy", "Wings Of Love", "In The Courtyard Of Stars", "You Are Just The One", and "Pentecost Hotel". CD features the full mono and stereo mixes of the album – plus bonus tracks that include "I Believe In Magic", "Life Ain't Easy", "Feelin Shattered", and "Requiem To John Coltrane". CD

VariousStrange Breaks & Mr Thing 3 – More Rock, Funk, Soul, Jazz, & Soundtrack Breaks For Mod Living ... CD
BBE (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
One of the coolest, hippest collections you could ever hope to find – not just the usual mix of vintage soul or obvious jazz tracks, but a wealth of wonderful work we never would have discovered otherwise! Mr Thing digs even deeper for this third volume than the previous two – working with a range of rare 70s records that span a great range of underground genres – mixing funky soul with sound library instrumentals, obscure themes, jazzy bits, and more – really getting back to the best spirit of BBE compilations like this from a decade or so ago. The whole thing's wonderful – really illuminating and full of surprises – and tracks include "La Da Da" by Dynamic Concept, "One More Time" by Nu Sounds Express, "The Sweeney" by Woolwich Polytechnic School Concert Band, "Fire To The Galleon" by Smiling Hard, "Rings Within Rings" by Harry Beckett, "La Bimini" by Spunk, "Nature Boy" by Sharon Cash, "Candy" by Chuck Jackson, "Romantic Atitude" by John Fitch & Associates, "Crossroads" by Graham Walker Sound, "Do It Again" by Disco Orchestra, "Oriental Weekend" by James Asher, "Give A Damn" by The Internationals, and "Art The Grass" by Dum Dum. 2CD set features one mixed disc, and one of unmixed tracks!

✨✧ Cannonball AdderleyCannonball Adderley's Fiddler On The Roof ... CD
Capitol, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Once again, Cannon proves that it's not the song, it's the singer! This set of tunes from the hit musical Fiddler On The Roof should be schmaltzy – but thanks to the quality of the group (a great sextet with Nat Adderley, Charles Lloyd, Joe Zawinul, Sam Jones, and Louis Hayes), and thanks to some hip production from David Axelrod, the album really sparkles! The tones of Cannon and Lloyd are great together – and the make the best songs sound like strange Eastern-tinged jazz numbers. Tunes include "To Life", "Fiddler On The Roof", "Cajvalach", "Sewing Machine", "Matchmaker", and "Now I Have Everything". CD features 4 bonus tracks too – "Little Boy With The Sad Eyes", "Goodbye Charlie", "Island Blues", and "Sweet Georgia Bright". CD

✨✧ Allman BrothersBrothers & Sisters ... LP
Capricorn, 1973. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Allman Brothers at their best – and a key 70s set that may well have the group working at their peak! All their best southern roots are firmly tied together here – not just the country-touched approach to rock that was the group's calling card, but also their ties to some of the Georgia soul scene as well – an element that really surfaces in some of the album's piano lines and rhythms, which really help underscore the depth of the tunes – and give the group a solid footing that's stronger than some of their more cliched contemporaries. These tunes hold up wonderfully over the years – and have a visionary approach that almost sparkles even more strongly here in the 21st Century than when we first started digging their sounds on radio back in the 70s. Titles include "Southbound", "Jessica", "Pony Boy", "Wasted Words", "Ramblin Man", "Come & Go Blues", and "Jelly Jelly". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a half split bottom seam.)

✨✧ Ruby AndrewsJust Loving You – The Zodiac Sessions 1967 to 1973 ... CD
Grapevine (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A masterful set of recordings from Chicago soul chanteuse Ruby Andrews – tunes she cut for Zodiac Records between 1967 and 1973! Ruby could handle any soul style her producers threw her way, be it driving dancefloor stompers or pure torch balladry, but she had a way of infusing everything she did with a great sense of emotion. It's the same kind of emotive, deep soul sweep that was buried so heavily in Curtis Mayfield's recordings – perhaps it's the Chicago factor! Whatever the case, this is wonderful stuff – essential to anyone interested in the best late 60s/early 70s female soul! 28 tracks in all: "Uh! Uh! Boy, That's A No No", "Help Yourself (Lover)", "Whatever It Takes To Please You", "Tit For Tat", "Good N' Plenty", "Can You Get Away", "Let's Get A Groove Going On", "Just Loving You", "The Love I Need", "Come To Me", "Wonderful Night", "Away From The Crowd", "Didn't I Fool You", "You Ole Boo Boo You", "All The Way" and lots more.

Transatlantic/Cherry Tree (UK), 1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Duo material from the late 60s British folk revival – nice stuff from Dave & Toni Arthur – resonating versions of traditional folk numbers – many with just voices and no instrumental accompaniment! It's pretty endearing stuff, the kind of thing you wish pubs full of people would sing, and their given that kind of reverence here by Dave & Toni. Includes "A Maiden Came From London Town", "Morning Stands On Tip Toe", "Padstow Drinking Song", "The Guilty Sea Captain", "Green Grass", "The Barley Grain Song", "Green Groom", "Bendigo Champion Of England" and more. Includes a couple bonus tracks, pop tunes recorded as The Strollers: "The Cuckoo" and "A Rich And Rambling Boy". CD

✨✧ Oscar Brown JrKicks! – The Best Of Oscar Brown Jr ... CD
Sony/BGP (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the most unique vocal work ever recorded – a stunning collection of Columbia sides by Oscar Brown Jr, a singer who mixed together equal parts jazz, soul, and folk – and came up with a sound that was all his own! Oscar bubbled out of the hip Chicago scene of the early 60s – and had a much more righteous approach than most of his contemporaries – not only writing his own lyrics for most of the tunes, but working in a genre-blending style that crossed over to a variety of difference audiences. Oscar could groove with the best in a southside club, but also appeal to the northside intellectuals – opening doors wherever he went with a fresh approach to jazz vocals! The set features work from all 4 of his Columbia albums – including a number of tracks on CD for the first time – and features arrangements by Quincy Jones, Floyd Morris, and Ralph Burns – on 23 tracks that include "All Blues", "Work Song", "Excuse Me For Living", "The Snake", "Mr Kicks", "Afro Blue", "Signifying Monkey", "Dat Dere", "Hazel's Hips", "Jeannine", "Opportunity Please Knock", "The Tree & Me", "Elegy (Plain Black Boy)", "Tall Like Pine", and "But I Was Cool".

✨✧ Chris ClarkSoul Sounds (with bonus track) ... CD
Motown/Reel Music, 1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great Motown album from Chris Clark – one of the few white singers ever signed to the label, and a great vocalist at that! Chris has a sound that's quite unique – halfway between Motown soul and some of the soul-inspired pop of the time – particularly that of UK singers like Dusty Springfield and some of her generation. There's a proud, bold sound here – all Motown in the backings, and often done with the kind of tightly-stepping grooves that have made some of Chris' singles big ones on the Northern Soul scene over the years. Titles include "I Want To Go Back There Again", "Day By Day Or Never", "From Head To Toe", "Sweeter As The Days Go By", "Do Right Baby Do Right", "Born To Love You Baby", "Love's Gone Bad", and "Whisper You Love Me Boy". CD also features a previously unreleased alternate stereo mix of "Do Right Baby Do Right" – and the overall package is amazing – with a 20 page full-color booklet that includes long notes on Clark's career, vintage photos, and even session details for the album!

✨✧ Willie ColonCosa Nuestra ... LP
Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A monster album of 70s salsa – and one that has bad boy Willie Colon taking the Latin world by storm – forging the new sound that would push him and the New York scene into the frontline of 70s Latin! Willie's got a strength on the set that's very much in keeping with his machine gun pose on the cover – a no-nonsense salsa groove that's overflowing with righteous pride and youthful energy – consciously aware of its new direction, and not afraid to show it! The album features the classic dancefloor groover "Che Che Cole", plus the tracks "Lo Me Llores Mas", "Sonero Mayor", "Sangrigorda", "Ausencia", and "Te Conozco". LP, Vinyl record album

A 2 LP retrospective of some of the more spiritual exploratory sides 'Trane was cutting in the mid to late '60's for Impulse. A number of cuts feature the classic quartet with Jimmy Garrison, McCoy Tyner & Elvin Jones, but a few feature some of the later lineups with Pharoah Sanders, Reggie Worman & Alice Coltrane. Tracks arte "Dear Lord", "Chasin the Trane", "Up 'Gainst the Wall", "Crescent", "Nature Boy", "Welcome", "Cosmos", "Dedicated to You", "Expression" & "Living Space". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ De La SoulGrind Date (with bonus track) ... LP
Sanctuary, 2004. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first post-Tommy Boy De La Soul album – and it's a winner! We've been on board with De La throughout their long career – anyone with open ears must know that even their spottiest records (and this is NOT one of those) feature at least a handful of treasure tracks. Grind Date is easily the best later De La Soul album, and brevity is as key to the album as the group's proven longevity. 13 tracks, 49 minutes, no skits. Two songs in you'll find the stellar "Verbal Clap", one of J Dilla's finest productions ever, with precise on beat rhymes by De La. Other highlights include "He Comes" with Ghostface, a soulful track that would sound just as great on Ghost's Supreme Clientele. Most critics will say this is De La's best album since Stakes Is High. We'll say it's better! Featuring production by Dave West, J Dilla, Madlib and 9th Wonder – plus guest appearances by Yummy, Ghostface, Carl Thomas, MF Doom, Common and others. Other tracks include "The Future", "Much More" feat Yummy, "The Grind Date", "Shopping Bags", "Days Of Our Lives" with Common, "Come On Down", "Rock Co. Kane Flow" featuring MF Doom and more – plus the bonus "Shoomp" with Sean Paul. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dyke & The BlazersWe Got More Soul – The Ultimate Broadway Funk ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The best collection we've ever seen of the work of funky soul legends Dyke & The Blazers – a double-length set that features full, unedited versions of their classics – plus a whopping batch of previously unreleased tunes! Dyke & The Blazers had a groove that was mighty solid back in the late 60s – a hard-vamping, tightly rhythmic groove that easily matched the best early funk of the time from Charles Wright, Sly Stone, or James Brown – and which was often served up with a rougher edge, and an overall sound that was a lot more dangerous! However, many of the group's singles really trimmed down their performances – shaving off key instrumental moments that are lovingly re-attached here, and combining them with some even rarer tracks that never saw the light of day back in the 60s. The whole thing's amazing – and this 2LP set features 18 tracks that include "Black Boy", "Stuff", "Moon", "Booga Jivin", "Runaway People", "Funky Broadway Time (parts 1 & 2)", "Swamp Walk", "Extra Funk", "Let A Woman Be A Woman Let A Man Be A Man", "Soul Cake", "She Knows It", "Let's Do It Together", "Bring It On Back", "Funky Walk (parts 1 & 2)", and "Triple Funk". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Eighth DayOn The Eighth Day ... LP
Kapp, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Seven guys and gals, coming together in harmony pop brilliance – thanks to a great set of arrangements from the legendary Artie Butler! In a world of soundalike groups in the 60s, The Eighth Day really stand out – working in a batch of all-original material here, one that uses folk, Sunshine, and harmony styles in the presentation – but somehow manages to focus the best elements of all modes together into a really sparkling little sound! Most numbers have a catchy sing-songy quality that should have made them bigger hits – yet there's also an under-discovered quality here that's probably one the things that makes the record so great! Titles include "Hey Boy", "Raining Sunshine", "Long Winter Nights", "Bandit Of Brazil", "Building With A Steeple", "Brandy", and "It Takes The Rain". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing.)

✨✧ Carolyn FranklinSister Soul – The Best Of The RCA Years 1969 to 1976 ... CD
RCA/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Massive work from Aretha Franklin's ultra-hip sister – singer Carolyn Franklin, a soul artist that we'd gladly trade for Aretha any time! Carolyn got her start in deep soul modes that were somewhat similar to Aretha's work on Atlantic – but she also worked with production that was a bit looser, freer, and more open to righteous influences than some of her sister's hit-bound sessions – and over the course of 4 albums for RCA she recorded some tremendously hip and funky tunes! This package is one of the first times that Carolyn's material has ever officially made it into the reissue years – and it brings together some of the best cuts from her RCA albums, including work arranged by Horace Ott, Wade Marcus, Bert De Coteaux, and other soul legends. There's a good deal of funk in the mix here – heavy bottoms on the tunes that really make them snap alongside the righteous vocals – and the package is easily one of the hardest-hitting sets of female soul you could ever hope to buy! 22 tracks in all – including "If You Want Me", "There I Go", "Ain't That Groovy", "Boxer", "Reality", "Chain Reaction", "Don't Wake Me Up In The Morning Michael", "Not On The Outside", "Boy I Love You", "You Are Everything", "Shattered Pride", "I Can't Help My Feeling So Blue", "As Long As You Are There", and "You Can Have My Soul". CD
Also available Sister Soul – The Best Of The RCA Years 1969 to 1976 ... CD 11.99
