VariousStrange Breaks & Mr Thing 3 – More Rock, Funk, Soul, Jazz, & Soundtrack Breaks For Mod Living ... LP
BBE (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99 27.99
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.

VariousSuper Funk Vol 5 – Super Funk Is Back – Rare & Classic Funk 1968 to 1977 ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
One of the deepest-digging entries in the Super Funk series so far – a blistering batch of underground singles that serve up some of the roughest funk of their generation! We'll be honest in saying that we'd only heard a few of the tracks here before – and our hats are off to BGP for taking this already-great series and making it go even deeper – far past familiar funk classics that usually get showcased on the label, and much more into the realm of the crate-digging underground, or the ebay-rarity stratosphere! A handful of cuts here are previously unreleased – never even issued on wax back in the day – and the rest are all pretty darn hard to find too, and all plenty darn great from a musical perspective. The package features a whopping 21 tracks in all – including a rare 1970 funky remake of "Twine Time" by Alvin Cash, plus "Home Brew" by Miles Grayson, "Just Sitting" by Smithstonian, "Can't Get Enough" by 87th Off Broadway, "Hi Off Life" by Eternal Flames, "Give Me Another Chance" by The Uniques, "Hold On" by Lorenzo Holden, "Free The Soul Man" by La May & Company, "Little Boy Blue" by The Phillips Brothers, "You'd Be Good For Me" by Jeanette Jones, "Who Done It? Who Drained The Pool?" by Big Daddy Green, "Low Rider (Deuce & A Quarter)" by Smokey Wilson, "Can't Buy Soul" by Hebrew Rogers, "Shake A Leg" by Jackie Wilson, "Face To Face" by The Explosions, and "Turn Around & Go" by Lee Bernard.

✨✧ VariousThat's Swift – Instrumentals From The Norman Petty Vaults ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... About January 1, 2017 (delayed)
Hard driving pulp instrumentals from the vaults of Norman Petty – seedy little rockers from 1961-1967 – walloping tunes by The King Pins, The Chandelles, The Five Counts, The Fireballs, The Bentleys, The Chances, The Rhythm Masters and more! The tunes carry the hallmarks of the vintage b-movie, drag strip & bikini strewn beach genres of the time – but most have heavier, headier and moodier tones that pre-figures the later garage rock and proto punk sounds. Titles include "Door Banger" (aka Ninety Four Second Surf) by The King Pins, "El Gato", by the Chandelles, "Riptide" by The Impact 5, "Wild Jam" by The Gliders, "Dream Theme" by The Techniques, "Boy Blue" by The Kingmen, "Termites" by The Cords, "Wild Kitten" by The Rhythm Masters, "Skokiaan" by The Fayrds and more. 24 tracks in all – a number of which were unreleased until now!

VariousTwelve Inch Eighties – People Hold On (3CD set) ... CD
Crimson (UK), 1980s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $12.99
The 80s were a huge decade for the 12" single – with a shift at the start of the decade to really unlock the possibilities in the format, to a move near the 90s where the format was virtually a standalone record itself – sometimes more important than full length albums by some artists! This set brings together loads of important tracks from that moment – music that begins in early 80s club, and moves through towards that time when a lot more American house was influencing the groove, and when producers had more than enough new technology on their hands to really open up a tune! Titles include "Beat Dis (extended dis)" by Bomb The Bass, "People Hold On (12" version)" by Coldcut with Lisa Stansfield, "Rockit (12" mix)" by Herbie Hancock, "I'll House You (Gee St reconstruction mix)" by Jungle Brothers, "Jump To It (12" mix)" by Aretha Franklin, "Theme From S'Express (12" version)" by S'Express, "Just Be Good To Me (12" ext)" by SOS Band, "I Really Didn't Mean It (12" mix)" by Luther Vandross, "Living In America (ext R&B dance mix)" by James Brown, "System Addict (M&M rmx)" by Five Star, "Lover Boy (12" ext)" by Billy Ocean, "Just An Illusion (ext)" by Imagination, "Lovely Day (88 rmx 12" version)" by Bill Withers, and "Saturday Love (12" version)" by Cherrelle & Alexander O'Neal.

Vee Jay, 1950s/1960s. Used 3CD & 7 Inch ... $18.99
A big, beautiful box of prime Vee Jay hits – 75 tracks on 3CDs, a 24 page booklet and a bonus red vinyl 45 featuring The Spaniels "Goodnight Sweetheart, Goodnight" (Vee Jay's first R&B hit) b/w "You Don't Move Me" – in a sweet, textured cardboard oversized box set! It's not an all encompassing archive, but it is fully loaded with completely great Vee Jay R&B and blues sides from the 50s & 60s – greatness from Jimmy Reed, The El Dorados, The 5 Echoes, The Dells, Elmore James, Jimmy Witherspoon, John Lee Hooker, Dee Clark, Eddie Harris, Gene Chandler, Betty Everett, Little Richard and more! 25 tracks on each of the 3CDs including "High & Lonesome" by Jimmy Reed, "Big Town Playboy" by Eddie Taylor, "For All We Know" by Sonny Til's Orioles, "The Pleasure Is All Mine" by Billy Emerson, "Have Faith" by Gene Allison, "Rockin'Itis" by Billy Boy Arnold, "Tupelo" By John Lee Hooker, "Your Friends" by Dee Clark, "Exodus" by Eddie Harris, "Tragic" by The Shephards, "The Shoop Shoop Song" by Betty Everett, "I Don't Know What You Got" by Little Richard and many more.

VariousWhat Does A Girl Do? – Femme Pop From The President Vaults ... CD
President (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $3.99
Girl pop, and plenty of soul music too – a batch of rare singles from the 60s, all making their CD debut on this sweet little set! The work here includes a fair bit of New York tunes from the time – music that has either an uptown soul or Brill Building vibe, but which is much more obscure than the hits – really showing the huge universe of artists who were working in the 45 underground who never fully got their due! Titles include "Jigsaw Puzzle" by The Chelmars, "Tom Tom" by Terry & The Tunisians, "I Have The Right" by The Twilights, "Love Wheel" by Millie Foster, "The Sweetest Boy" by The Kittens, "I Wanna Talk To You" by Karol Kelly, "There'll Be No Goodbye" by Susan Lynne, "What Does A Girl Do" by Marcie Blaine, "Where's My Love" by Jamie Horton, "Larry" by The Allen Sisters, and "I'm Hurt & So Is My Heart" by Little Gigi.

VariousWhere Southern Soul Began Vol 3 – 1957-1963 – History Of Soul ... CD
History Of Soul (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $10.99
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.

VariousWhere The Girls Are Vol 5 – A Decade Of Columbia Femme Pop ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A treasure trove of rare female soul – featuring singles recorded for Columbia Records in the late 60s, most of which have never been properly reissued! During the 60s, Columbia was much more of a mainstream label than a soul one – but they also managed to release some really great 45s, almost by "accident" it seems, filled with soulful work that was every bit as great as that coming out of the small labels at the time – perhaps even more so, as the quality of the writing and production was always top-notch! This set brings together 26 tracks from those rare days – titles that include "Dressed In Black" by The Pussycats, "Marching Home" by Tracey Dey, "That Boy Is Messing Up My Mind" by The Orchids, "Sing Me A Love Song" by The Glories, "You're My Lovin Baby" by The Sweet Things, "Wonderful World Of Love" by The Poppies, "You Can't Hurt Me No More" by The Opals, "The Right To Cry" by Erma Franklin, "Baby You're Mine" by Sandi Shelton, "Wasn't It You" by Peggy Lipton, and "Gonna Make Him My Baby" by April Young.

VariousWhere The Girls Are Vol 9 ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
Where the girls are is right here – served up in a beautiful blend of rare tracks from the mid 60s – almost all of them in a female group mode, at a time when that style was really hitting new heights in American popular music! The work here is a mixture of rock and soul, and almost all of it features female harmonies set to sublime pop production – modes that range from west coast dreamy to Brill Building groovy – all laid out in an extended track list that also includes a few never-issued tracks as well! This series has been running for quite some time, but it's always a great one – and we're amazed at how the folks at Ace keep turning up nuggets we never would have heard otherwise – all presented with wonderful sound, and full notes to support the whole collection – a lot more than you can say for dodgier sets on the market. Titles include "Billy Sunshine" by Evie Sands, "With A Kiss" by The Bluezettes, "Don't Forget" by The Murmaids, "That's The Way It Is" by The Sweet Three, "Moon Walking" by The Blossoms, "More Than A Friend" by The Wooden Nickels, "On A Rainy Night" by The Flowers, "What Did You Do Last Night" by The Drake Sisters, "I Can Tell I'm Losing Your Love" by Lena Calhoun & The Emotions, "You Better Stop It" by The Lovelites, "Ballyhoo" by Ramona King, "Bad Boy" by Christine Cooper, and "Baby I Miss You" by The Popsicles.

VariousWhistle Bait – 25 Rockabilly Rave Ups ... CD
Columbia/Sony, Late 50s. New Copy ... $5.99 7.99
Massive sounds from Columbia Records – a smoking set of rockabilly numbers that the legendary label cut during a time when it was making most of its money selling mainstream pop, classical music, and Broadway showtunes albums! Yet beneath all that big-cash production, Columbia found the time to get some amazing records cut in the studio – searing tracks that still bristle with plenty of power and raw energy all these many years later – and which easily match the fire and frenzy of singles you'd hear from some of the more obscure indies that are always prized by collectors of early rock singles! Some artists are Columbia country singers, stepping out for much more gritty action on cuts like these – others are more obscure rock acts that hit the label's roster far from the clean pop of Mitch Miller – and the CD features 25 gems that include "Whistle Bait" by Larry Collins, "Dig Boy Dig" by Freddie Hart, "Big Fool" by Ronnie Self, "I Got A Hole In My Pocket" by Little Jimmy Dickens, "Romp Stompin Boogie" by Jaycee Hill, "Good Rockin Baby" by Sid King & The Five Strings, "Mean Mama Blues" by Marty Robbins, "I'm Comin Home" by Johnny Horton, "Ah Poor Little Baby" by Billy Crash Craddock, "Hoy Hoy" by Collins Kids, "Everybody's Rockin" by Werly Fairburn, "Rawhide" by Link Wray, "You're Humbuggin Me" by Lefty Frizzell, and "Ugly & Slouchy" by Maddox Brothers.

VariousWindy City Doo Wop To Soul – 29 Unissued Vocal Group Classics From The 50s & 60s ... CD
Buried Treasure, Late 50s/1960s. Used ... $11.99
The title says it all – as the set's a collection of rare group soul recordings from Chicago, either unreleased recordings by obscure groups, or a few alternate takes of more famous numbers (but we use that term loosely here, as the cuts are all pretty darn rare!) Obviously, the fidelity's not in the 24-bit remaster mode – since lots of these come from rare tapes or acetates – but the set's a wonderful treasure if you're into harmony soul, especially of the Chicago sort! Titles include "Dear Lord" by The Vondells, "I Love That Guy" by The Shel-Raes, "Too Late" by Henry Ford & The Gifts, "Meet Me Halway" by The Condors, "Can't Take It" by The Sheppards, "Everyday Of The Week" by The Springers, "You Ain't Right" by The Nobles, "Darling Don't" by The Medallionaires, "Mtyllt" by The Dream Kings, "Restless Nights" by The Uniques, and "Boy Meets Girl" by The Delprados.

VariousWonderland – The Spirit Of Earth Wind & Fire ... CD
Expansion (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $14.99
An amazing document of the wide wide reach of Earth Wind & Fire at the end of the 70s – that joyous, righteous spirit that not only flowed through their own music, but seemed to touch most of the soul and jazz world as well! The set's a much-needed look at the way that energy from EWF flowed out to so many other folks too – as the group's tunes were frequently covered, its members frequently worked with other artists, and Maurice White frequently lent his production talents to others in the studio! The package is overflowing with greatness from the great ones – a killers set of tracks that include "Got To Find My Way" by Pockets, "Tequila Mockingbird" by Dee Dee Bridgewater, "Let's Get Together" by Paulinho DaCosta, "City Lights" by Valerie Carter, "Ancient Source" by Caldera, "Answer To My Prayer" by Alton McClain & Destiny, "Let Love Groove Me" by Syliva St James, "The Boy I Left Behind" by Deniece Williams, "Glow Love" by Mighty Clouds Of Joy, "And I Do" by Abraham Laboriel, "I Waited" by Blue Magic, "Dream Come True" by Stargard, and "Theme For Relana" by Gene Harris.

✨✧ Paul AnkaWalk A Fine Line ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Paul Anka may be hiding his balding pate under a hat on the cover, but the album's got the singer being very open with his style – and hitting a great AOR mode for the 80s! Anka may have hit a few clunky spots in the 70s – but he's maturing nicely on this overlooked album from the following decade – working a gentle current of soul with his vocals, amidst arrangements from David Foster, Michael McDonald, and producer Denny Diante – with a smooth vibe that's never trying too hard for any sort of easy crossover fame. Most cuts are originals by Anka – showing his songwriting skills in fine form – and titles include "Second Chance", "Golden Boy", "Gimme The Word", "This Is The First Time", "No Way Out", and "Darlin Darlin". CD
(Part of the great AOR City series from Japan!)

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

A group very much embracing the Native Tongue school of thought that is not heard much in hip hop these days. If you like that jazzy, late 80's early 90's flavor with positive lyrics and a little more movement than just head noddin, then scoop this up, because these two are on the real. Tracks include "Elevator Music", "B-Boy (We Get Shit)", "Think About" featuring J Rawls from Lone Catalysts, "Truly Unique", "Soul", "This Is Me", "Jamboree", "Dear You", "Soon Come" and more.

✨✧ Average White BandPerson To Person ... LP
Atlantic, 1976. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Their classic double live set from the mid 70s, and as tight a batch of grooves as you'll find on their studio albums! In fact, this one might even be tighter, as it's got a good set of classic tracks performed live, with a sound that's a little bit more uptight and open than the studio versions– and which is especially freewheeling on the instrumental solos. Many tracks go for a lot longer than on the original versions – and there's a version of "Pick Up The Pieces" that runs for 18 minutes, a version of "If I Ever Lose This Heaven" that grooves for 8 minutes, a version of "School Boy Crush" that jams for 7 minutes, plus nice takes on the cuts "Cut The Cake", "Love Your Life", and "Cloudy".

Great early work from Oscar Brown Jr – a hip mix of jazz and soul, working in Brown's unique sense of showmanship, and his almost beat-like flair with a lyric! Ralph Burns and Quincy Jones handled the arrangements – and the album's filled with great original tracks. Nice jazzy groove, and very much in the best style of Oscar's 60s work! including "Mr. Kicks", "Opportunity, Please Knock", Love is Like a New Born Child", "Elegy (Plain Black Boy)", "Hazel's Hips", "Forbidden Fruit", "Sam's Life", "When Malindy Sings" and more.
