Dusty GrooveDusty Groove Extra-Large Tote Bag – Green ... Misc
Dusty Groove Gear, New Copy ... $1.99
A brilliant update of the Dusty Groove tote bag – one that's super-big, super-wide, and able to carry a few dozen albums or CDs at once! The bag comes with a flat bottom insert – so that you can spread the gusset wide, and slide in whatever you've got to carry – and while the overall design is somewhat lightweight (like those re-usable grocery bags you get at the store), you can still fit plenty inside. You might not want to lug around records in this bag all day long, but it will do in a pinch – and in the meantime, you can fit lots of other everyday things inside – including groceries, gym clothes, tools, sports equipment, and even a basketball (we tried it ourselves!)

A special shoulder bag from Dusty Groove – big enough to carry 20 albums, a bunch of books, or even some groceries – with an adjustable strap that lets you carry the load on your shoulders! The bag's made of the same sort of material you'll find in other re-usable bags on the market – which makes it very light and easy to fold up when not in use – then ready at your side to carry the day's booty whenever you need it!

Dusty Groove Gear/Vaya, New Copy ... $104.99
A totally cool, totally amazing record bag – designed by Dusty Groove with a special eye towards bike-riding record diggers! We buy a lot of records here at Dusty Groove – and we also bike around Chicago a heck of a lot – but we've never found a shoulder bag that's right for records and biking together – until now! With help from the folks at Vaya Bags, we've designed this extra-deep record bag that should hold 40 to 50 LPs snugly in a waterproof bag – with an extra pouch for 7" singles – and even an inner pouch for other goodies too. The bag itself is super-strong – great stitching and very durable – and it's made from recycled bicycle tires, canvas sails, and other reclaimed materials – so you can feel extra-good about using it – and it's got all these other great features too. One of the coolest is the special Vaya adjustable shoulder strap – which is easy to slide up and down while you're wearing it – and a chest-cinching clip, so the bag rides tight. Plus, there's a big reflective strip on the back – for biking at night – and a large flap over the top with lots of velcro to hold it shut. All that, and it's even got the Dusty Groove logo – nice and big! And yes, it's a bit pricey – but this is the kind of bag that will last for years – and works well even if you're not a biker, too.

✨✧ Richie HavensMixed Bag ... LP
Verve, 1967. Very Good+ ... $4.99
The genius of Richie Havens at this point is beyond compare – a unique take on the dying folk sound of the 60s, one that infused it with a deeper sense of soul that helped it get new legs in the Woodstock generation – yet which is also heard here before any of the post-hippie cliches that would bog down some of Richie's later work. There's an earnestness to this music that's also touched with a good degree of worldly sense – a notion that the world was changing, but one person at a time, and mostly through the gentle efforts and honest efforts of souls like Richie. This LP features 11 tracks in all – with titles that include "High Flyin' Bird", "San Francisco Bay Blues", "Just Like A Woman", "Sandy", "Three Day Eternity", "Follow", and "Handsome Johny".

Hipsters In The ZoneInto The Afro-Latin Bag ... CD
Nabel (Germany), 1994. Used ... $11.99
Forget the stupid name – because this is a great set! The album was recorded in Germany during the mid 90s, but with a very groovy feel that sounds like some of the classic Verve and Blue Note sides from the 60's! There's a cool vibes/piano sound, and some of the cuts have guest vocals by the great Monika Linges. Breezy and jazzy, but with the kind of rolling grooves that you'd find on a Cal Tjader or Horace Silver record. Includes a great cut called "Waterloop" that's sort of a update of "Cantalope Island", plus lots of other good groovers like "Ayola", "Hellas", "Stepping", and "Peace To". Stupid name, but a great record! CD

Karin Krog & Morten Gunnar LarsenIn A Rag Bag ... CD
Meantime (Norway), 2012. New Copy ... $18.99
Karin Krog really lives up to the title here – working with pianist Morten Gunnar Larsen in a set of tracks that hearken back to the earliest days of jazz – and which definitely open up some ring new territory for the singer! Krog's a vocalist that we've come to associate with some of the most modern elements in jazz – but she's also a sensitive stylist who turns out to do great things with older numbers too – using her mindblowing vocals in ways that are very different than traditional interpretations of these tunes. Morten's piano is very individual, too – ringing out in ways that are more contemporary, yet still resonate with tradition. Titles include "Euphonic Sounds", "In The Dark/In A Mist", "Way Down Yonder", "Spanish Steps", "Wild Cat Blues", "Blue Turning Grey Over You", and "Feeling Too Good Today Blues". CD

✨✧ Tricky Lofton & Carmell JonesBrass Bag ... LP
Pacific Jazz, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $18.99
A gem of an album – and one of the few rare sides cut by trumpeter Carmell Jones! The album features some hip early 60s LA soul jazz arrangements by Gerald Wilson – played by a group that features work by Jones, trombonists Tricky Lofton and Lou Blackburn, and pianist Frank Strazzeri. The small combo's backed by a larger "trombone choir" with 4 other players (including Wayne Henderson), but the record takes a straight hard solo approach – very much in the "sock" trombone style that you'd get from a record by Slide Hampton or Benny Green. Jones' trumpet wails over the top, adding in some nice tight punctuation to the session's grooves, and blowing hard and fast on a few fast tracks. Titles include "Celery Stalks At Midnight", "Bluer Than That", "Brass Bag", and a great take on "Mood Indigo". LP, Vinyl record album
(Silver & black label pressing, with deep groove. Cover has a cutout hole, a bit of wrinkling in the laminate, and some splitting on the top seam – but this is still quite a nice copy.)

Don't be put off by the "blues" in the title – as this is a great album from Jimmy, with a complicated jazzy feel! The set was arranged, composed, and conducted by Manny Albam – who sets Jimmy's organ in a suite of tracks that have a far-reaching sound that you won't find on Jimmy's other albums from the time. Jerome Richardson plays some incredible work on saxes, and the rest of the group includes Joe Newman, Richard Davis, and Mel Lewis. Titles include "Better Late Than Never", "Slim Jim", "Time Waltzes On", "The Deacon's Peekin", and "Friday Nite's Rite". LP, Vinyl record album

Mongo SantamariaSoul Bag/Stone Soul ... CD
Columbia/SPV (Germany), 1968/1969. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99 19.99
A pair of tremendous albums from Mongo Santamaria – back to back in one cool collection! Soul Bag is a stone 60s smoker from Mongo Santmaria – and a great little set that really lives up to its title! The "soul" reference points to the record's host of 60s soul tunes, which are given a hip Latin spin by Mongo – working here with killer boogaloo arrangements from the great Marty Sheller – with a combo that includes soulful reed lines from Hubert Laws, Sonny Fortune, and Mauricio Smith – plus trumpet from Luis Gasca, and some killer drums from the legendary Pretty Purdie! The mix of jazz and Latin players on the record is really wonderful – and although the tunes are familiar, the presentation is mighty fresh – especially given the way the horn players manage to pack so much into their solos. Titles include "Baby What You Want Me to Do", "Hot Dog", and "Chili Beans" – plus cool versions of "Cold Sweat", "In The Midnight Hour", "Respect", and "Green Onions". Stone Soul is a killer album from Mongo Santamaria's classic 60s run for Columbia – and a record that also features some wonderful alto work from a young Sonny Fortune! Sonny's the key soloist on the record – bringing some sharp jazz elements to an album that's equal part Latin and 60s soul instrumental – served up with key arrangements from Marty Sheller, and played by a cool mix of Latin and soul players that includes Mongo on congas and bongos, plus Pretty Purdie on drums, Haldey Caliman and Hubert Laws on tenor, Luis Gasca on trumpet, and Stephen Berrios, Julito Collazo, and Osualdo Martinez on percussion! Tunes are a mix of covers and cool originals – and titles include "Hitchcock Railway", "See Saw", "Cloud Nine", "Where We Are", "Love Child", "Who's Making Love", and "The Now Generation". CD

VariousBig Ol' Bag O' Boogaloo Vol 3 ... LP
Andale, Late 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
A third great bag of boogaloo – and easily one of the hippest Latin series we've ever carried! As with other volumes, this batch of tracks is dug from the deepest underground of the late 60s east coast Latin scene – the smaller labels that lived in the shadows of Fania, Tico, and Alegre – imprints like Speed, Ghetto, and a few others – all serving up rougher-edged Latin than you might know from the hits! The sound here is often in the best Latin Soul or boogaloo mode – but there's often some rougher edges that make the tracks particularly interesting – ways of approaching the grooves that are quite unique, and a mix of vocal and production techniques that never fail to blow our minds! Titles include "Soul Mambo" by Bruce Cloud, "So Good" by Milton Zapata, "Already Satisfied" by Tony Middleton & Bobby Matos, "Rainy Night All Over" by Solid State, "Lay An OZ On Me Baby" by Latin Blues Band, "Morty's Harlem" by Moon People, "Wabble With Boogaloo" by Orquesta Olivieri, and "Riki Chi" by La Orquesta Boogaloo.

Andale, Late 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
A massive batch of Latin soul from the late 60s – all pulled from the deeper corners of the New York underground – from a range of fresh, young musicians who go way beyond the bigger names on Fania and Tico! The tunes here really show the sharpest changes in Latin music at the time – the strong embrace of soul and jazz sounds from other stretches of the uptown scene – and the move to smaller, tighter groups after years of bigger bands – which makes for the kind of lively instrumental interplay you're more likely to hear from a funk combo! Some numbers here have swinging soulful vocals, others are really cooking on the instrumental tip – and titles include "The Aztec Theme" by The Aztecs, "Having Fun" by Pepe Fernandez, "Ain't That Right" by Arthur Sterling, "Mi Guajira" by Frankie Nieves, "El Gallo" by Al Gonzalez, "Damelo Baby" by The Aztecs, "C-Rations & Cornbread" by Pepe Fernandez, and "Do The Boogaloo" by New York All Stars & Orquesta Novel.

Jackie McLeanJackie's Bag ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1959/1960. New Copy ... On July 1, 2015
A real classic by Jackie McLean – a record that's pulled from 2 different sessions, but which stands out with a strikingly unified feel! The album was cut during the height of Jackie's bop years for Blue Note – with one 1959 session that featured Donald Byrd and Sonny Clark, and another from 1960 that featured Blue Mitchell, Kenny Drew, and the great Tina Brooks on tenor. Brooks' appearance on the album is especially great, as the tracks which feature him and McLean together crackle with some of the first modernist energy to show up on one of Jackie's albums – really hitting hard on original compositions that include "A Ballad For Doll", "Appointment in Ghana", and "Isle of Java". One of McLean's best-ever – and filled with great original tracks! CD

Sleeping Bag, 1981. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $21.99
An incredible full album from Dinosaur L – the legendary New York dancefloor project of Arthur Russell! The group's a punky, funky, chunky amalgam of bass thumping, guitar riffing, keyboard filling, and sax honking – all very much in the spirit of Russell's best quirky club work of the time, but with the added sound here of a more expanded approach – one that takes the tunes in a whole new territory than the more famous 12" singles! The tracks on the set are simply numbered – "1", "2", "3", and so on – and come across almost as free-jamming instrumentals! Totally great stuff – as experimental as it is funky!

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassHerb Alpert's Ninth ... LP
A&M, 1967. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Wonderfully jaunty and jagged work from trumpeter Herb Alpert – and a session that has him opening up the Tijuana Brass groove a bit more than usual! There's clearly an influence here of the Brazilian sound that was showing up strongly at A&M Records at the time – heard to greatest effect on the album's version of Chico Buarque's "A Banda", but also in gentler, more subtle ways that seem to emerge in other tunes that trade the group's older sound for one that has more of a bossa sense of subtlety. Also, there's some great A&M pop that's beginning to emerge here too – as in the album's great takes on "The Happening" and "Love So Fine" – both of which really sound beautiful here! Other tracks include "Cowboys & Indians", "Flea Bag", "Love Nest", and "Bud". LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassSRO ... LP
A&M, 1966. Very Good ... $0.99
A standing room ovation in the A&M Studios – certainly the kind of reception we'd imagine Herb would get during these glory years of his career! The set's one of the most no-nonsense Tijuana Brass sessions of the 60s – a tightly crafted album that has a bit more jazz than usual sneaking in on some of the tunes, but still enough of that snapping, punchy rhythmic approach that makes Herb and the group so great! As usual, the fluidity here is the strongest point – as the A&M touch takes a sound that should be hokey, and flips it into something really really groovy through warm use of compression in the studio. Titles include "Blue Sunday", "Bean Bag", "Work Song", "Our Day Will Come", "Mexican Road Race", and "Freight Train Joe". LP, Vinyl record album

Great stuff from Eryka Badu – sweet, mellow, soulful, and with a very righteous vibe! The record's got some impeccable production – and the best cuts have a stripped-down groove that mixes keyboards and vocals in a way that's similar to recent work by D'Angelo and Jill Scott. Eryka's all her own woman, though – and she keeps things very real with her own unique vocal style and phrasing on the lyrics. Loads of great tracks – and titles include "Kiss Me On My Neck", "Didn't Cha Know", "My Life", "AD 2000", "Bag Lady", "In Love With You", and "Booty". And on top of all that, if the album weren't dope enough as is, here is the limited edition promo version, packaged in a really awesome picture cover envelope styled sleeve! Ultra-rare!

Black HeatNo Time To Burn ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $6.99
A stone classic from Black Heat – the group's second album, and even tighter than their first! The group's size has dropped a bit between albums – but that only helps them cook even more – dropping a bit of the horn section from before, which allows even more emphasis on their razor-sharp rhythms! There's a slight hint of Afro Funk in some of the rhythms – and the keyboards cook with lots of sweet clavinet lines – mixed with a production style that features some bubbling electronic elements that remind us a lot of that crazy "magic bag" that was used by the Lafayette Afro-Rock Band. That group might be a good point of comparison, but the band also shares a lot of Kool & The Gang's ensemble funk style – especially on their cover of "Love The Life You Live" – which they burn here beautifully! Other tracks include "Super Cool", "M&M's", "Rapid Fire", "You Should Have Listened", "Times Have Changed", and "Check It All Out". CD

Cicero BlakeHere Comes The Heartache – The Soul Years ... CD
Grapevine (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 19.99
Hard hard hard soul from the great Cicero Blake – a singer who's better known these days for his down-home blues work, but who was a heck of a great soul artist in the 60s and 70s! This wonderfully-done set collects together 23 singles from Cicero's diverse recordings of the 60s and 70s – pulling together recordings that were issued on a variety of different labels, but when taken together show Blake to be an incredibly powerful singer, with a depth to rival that of his Chicago contemporaries, like Tyrone Davis or Syl Johnson! And honestly, even though we'd heard the odd single by Cicero here and there over the years, we'd never gotten a complete picture of his career until this wonderful set – and we're extra-thankful to the folks at Grapevine for doing such a great job on the notes and track selection. Titles include "See What Tomorrow Brings", "Sad Feeling", "Soul Of Pain", "Take It From Me", "Loving You Woman Is Everything", "Shing A Ling", "Here Comes The Heartache", "Should I Go", "Could This Be Love", "Face The Case", "Don't Wait Until Tomorrow", "Bad But Beautiful Bag", "Doin What Comes Naturally", "Dip My Dipper", "Be Good To Me", "Your Love Is Like A Boomerang", and a bonus 90s sweet soul number, "Don't Wanna Blow My Chance With You".

James BrownJames Brown At The Garden ... CD
King/Universal (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
Not as well-known as James Brown's live albums from the Apollo, but a really cooking set from the 60s that keeps up a plenty hard groove all the way through! As with most of James' live dates, the tracks here move at a clip that's often even faster than the studio work – played to perfection by the group with razor-sharp tightness that's simply breathtaking – possibly even more so in this environment. And although the crowd noise swells up at time, there's definitely less of the "fake" live sound of other JB albums of this nature – just a gritty little live party that blows the speakers out from all the action at the low end! Titles include versions of "Ain't That A Groove", "I Got You", "Bring It Up", and "Out Of Sight" – plus the groovy "Hip Bag '67" and "Let Yourself Go". Nice cover, too – with a back photo that has a picture of James and Hubert Humphrey, and a front cover that's a cool cartoony image of New York near the Garden! CD

Raw soul, indeed – a term that could have been coined for James Brown's vocal approach, and which probably makes one of its first appearances here on a record! The album's kind of a grab bag of earlier sides that James recorded for King, but it's a perfect showcase for his amazing sound in any setting – as it brings together funky bits with more straightforward soul numbers. Tracks include the great funky numbers "Money Won't Change You" and "Bring It Up", both of which show the new hard sound of James coming to the forefront – plus the tracks "Stone Fox", "Tell Me That You Love Me", "Money Won't Change You (parts 1 & 2)', "Let Yourself Go", and the hip message cut "Don't Be A Drop Out".

A lost treasure from James Brown & The JBs – a vintage live performance from the early 70s, and one that captures the group at the height of their powers! The format here is very similar to the excellent Revolution Of The Mind set – a totally funky, totally righteous live performance that has James and the group even more energized than in the studio – working with the kind of razor-sharp intensity that made them a legendary funk act – leaping from tune to tune with nary a break at all! Bobby Byrd acts as the MC, and joins James for a bit of vocals – and the group at this point still includes Bootsy Collins on bass, plus loads of great guitar from Catfish Collins, and Fred Wesley on trombone and Jabo Starks on drums. Dave Matthews handled some of the arrangements – and titles include "Soul Power", "Sex Machine", "Bewildered", "It's A New Day", "Ain't It Funky Now", "Brother Rapp", "Super Bad", "Give It Up Or Turnit A Loose", and "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag/I Got You/I Got The Feelin". Note – this is the first presentation of the material exactly the way that James Brown intended – as a 3LP set, without the remixing from the previous CD – pulled right from the original reels!

King/Verve, 1970. Used ... $7.99
A different James Brown album – but a nice one! James doesn't sing soul, so much as jazz – in front of large backings by Louis Bellson, with arrangements by Oliver Nelson that are in his best 60s soul mode – and which give the album a very very groovy feel overall! The record's not funky, but James' vocals are plenty darn soulful – and the album is proof that he could be a huge talent in just about any mode that he chose – shining with a brilliance that was irrepressible! James covers a few of his older tracks on the album, and sings a few other pop standards – and titles include nice versions of "It's Magic", "The Man In The Glass", "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag", "That's My Desire", and "I Need Your Key (To Turn Me On)". CD features the previously unissued bonus track "There Was A Time" – plus the full, unedited versions of 4 other tracks – appearing here for the first time ever! CD

LC CookeComplete SAR Recordings ... CD
SAR/Abkco, 1964. New Copy ... $8.99 9.98
The first-ever release of this full album of material by LC Cooke – the younger brother of the late Sam Cooke, but a hell of a singer in his own right! LC issued a few labels for Sam's SAR label in the early 60s, but this full set never saw the light of day – as it was scrapped after Sam's untimely early death – which makes this package the long-overdue release of the album at last! LC's style is a bit deeper than Sam's – still as well put-together, but with a bit less polish on the edges, and a lot more grit in the grooves – and the album mostly features production by Sam Cooke, over sessions from the early 60s – plus some final recordings done by LC with the Magnificent Montague. These 18 tracks are a great revelation – especially when taken together – and Peter Guaralnick wrote a great essay for the notes, which really ties the whole thing together. Titles include "Tell Me", "Take Me For What I Am", "The Lover", "Magic Words", "Sufferin", "Miss Sally", "Gonna Have A Good Time", "Do You Wanna Dance", "You're Working Out Your Bag", "Chalk Like", and "Put Me Down Easy".

Miles DavisBags Groove ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1954. Used ... $4.99
Classic Miles Davis from that pivotal year of 1954 – featuring work from 2 different sessions, both of them great! The title track on the album is a key reading of "Bag's Groove", presented here in two versions, both recorded by a quintet that includes Milt "Bags" Jackson on vibes, Thelonious Monk on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – carving out the tune in a nicely modern idiom. The rest of the set features work by Miles in a quintet with Sonny Rollins and Horace Silver – again with support from Heath and Clarke – on tunes that include 2 versions of "But Not For Me", plus early recordings of Sonny Rollins' standards "Oleo", "Airegin", and "Doxy".

Lou DonaldsonMidnight Creeper ... CD
Blue Note, 1968. Used ... $9.99
Funky genius from Lou Donaldson – one of his first funky albums for Blue Note, and a real killer all the way through! The album has a great young group working with Lou – players that include Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Lonnie Smith on organ, Leo Morris (aka Idris Muhammed) on drums, and George Benson on guitar – grooving with that really soulful early sound of his! The album has that hard Lou Donaldson funky sound that still sounds fantastic today – and titles include "Dapper Dan", "Midnight Creeper", "Bag of Jewels", and "Love Power". CD

Fania All-StarsLive At The Red Garter Vol 2 ... LP
Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A Latin soul party – beyond compare! The album's a completely wonderful live set that really captures the energy, excitement, and warm sociability of the hip New York scene at the end of the 60s. The music is stunning – a freewheeling blend of jazz, soul, and Latin themes – played with effortless ease by a lineup that includes Joe Bataan, Ray Barretto, Willie Colon, Larry Harlow, Bobby Quesada, Louie Ramirez, Ralph Robles, and some of the other heavy-hitters of the Latin soul years. (Just imagine trying to get so many jazz or rock talents together on one stage – it would never happen!) The album's incredible – and even the spoken introductions and crowd noise really help set the feel of the era's mighty magic power! Titles on this second volume include "Kikapoo Joy Juice", "If This World Were Mine", "Richie's Bag", "Red Garter Strut", and "Son Cuero Y Boogaloo". Firey stuff, and one of their best records!

Von FreemanHave No Fear (plus bonus track) ... CD
Nessa, 1975. Used ... $11.99
One of the best studio albums ever from the legendary Von Freeman – and a date that really captures some of the careful essence of his live performances in Chicago! Unlike the previous Atlantic album, which tried to fit Von into a more expected bag, this easygoing Nessa session really lets him open up and take off – blowing tunes that are straight ahead, but always with that offbeat style that turns the songs inside out – making them rich exploratory fields for inventive and creative solos! The group fits Von's longtime credo of never upstaging the leader – which gives his tenor lots of room to blow – and players include John Young on piano , David Shipp on bass, and the great Wilbur Campbell on drums. Titles include a great version of Mancini's "Mr Lucky", plus "Swinging The Blues", "Polka Dots And Moonbeams", and "Have No Fear Soul Is Here". This great Nessa CD version has a killer bonus track, too – the Freeman-composed "Boomerang". CD
