Polydor, 1972. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Nice stuff from James – a fast funky cut with a shouted chorus that really screams! The tune skips along with a madly scratchy version – far more unbridled than some of the other JB funk of the time, but really holding together despite the speed! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bobby DarinIn A Broadway Bag ... LP LP format
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good+ ... $8.99
A mature side by Bobby Darin - featuring him taking on some of the biggest Broadway tunes of his generation – and doing a pretty darn good job as well! Arrangements are by Shorty Rogers and Perry Botkin, both of whom bring a hip flair to the proceedings – a sound that's usually a fair bit more swinging and jazz-based than you'd hear if you were catching these songs in their original settings. Darin's finger-snapping style is a great one for these tunes – bringing out all their sharper edges in ways that other 60s performers don't always get. Titles include "Night Song", "Try To Remember", "Once Upon A Time", "The Other Half Of Me", "I Believe In You", "It's Today", and "Everybody Has The Right To Be Wrong". LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy DeFrancoBlues Bag – Leonard Feather's Encyclopedia Of Jazz Of The 60s Vol 2 ... LP LP format
Vee Jay, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
A real lost treasure – and an incredible session that offers a real meeting of minds that's far more than you'd expect from the simple cover and title! The set is a later one for Vee Jay, and it brings together half of the Jazz Messengers with a batch of west coast players – in a groove that wonderfully mixes together different traditions and rhythms in jazz – and which steps out with a sound that's far more than the sum of its parts! Art Blakey, Lee Morgan, and Curtis Fuller join a group headed by Buddy De Franco, and featuring Victor Feldman on piano and vibes, plus Victor Sproles on bass and Freddie Hill on trumpet. The sound of the group is quite unusual – and a lot lighter than you'd guess – giving Buddy plenty of room to solo in a breezy style that's grown tremendously since his 50s recordings – pushed along by some heavier soul from Art and the group. Titles include "Rain Dance", "Blues Bag", "Twelve Tone Blues", "Kush", and "Cousin Mary". LP, Vinyl record album

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! And sure, it's not Jack Spade – but it's a pretty sharp bag at a mighty nice price! Misc

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.

Nabel (Germany), 1994. Used ... $18.99
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

Mongo SantamariaSoul Bag/Stone Soul ... CD CD format
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

Jazz Masters, Late 70s. Very Good ... $9.99
One of the best Stitt sessions from the 70's, and a sweet batch of electric tracks with Eddie Russ on the piano. In a way, this is his best album on the Jazz Master label – better than the Tornado album, which seems to show up more. It's got a very nice version of "We've Only Just Begun" that has a super-sample intro, with a jazzy Tribe Called Quest vibe. Other nice ones include the group's version of "Ain't No Sunshine", and a nice long take of "Hill Where The Lord Hides". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousBig Ol' Bag O' Boogaloo Vol 3 ... LP LP format
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.

VariousBig Ol' Bag O' Boogaloo Vol 4 (with download) ... LP LP format
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.

New Count Basie & His OrchestraBasie's Beatle Bag ... CD CD format
Verve, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing little record – with results that are even greater than the sum of its parts! As you'd guess from the title, Count Basie takes on the 60s sounds of The Beatles – but he's doing so with arrangements from the great Chico O'Farrill – who really keeps things interesting throughout – throwing in those hip rhythms and odd twists and turns he first forged with his Latin recordings – in ways that definitely live up to the groovy pedigree of the tunes. And the Basie group's got a groovier sound than usual – probably due to the arrangements – and Basie plays some nice organ riffs on a number of the album's tracks – one of the Count's rare outings on the instrument, always a treat. Titles include "Help!", "Can't Buy Me Love", "I Wanna Be Your Man", "All My Loving", and "And I Love Her". Proof that The Beatles' influence was way farther reaching than you'd ever expect! CD

Burt BacharachCasino Royale (2CD expanded version) ... CD CD format
Colgems/Quartet (Spain), 1967. New Copy 2 CDs ... $29.99
One of Burt Bacharach's finest moments, and a soundtrack that we never tire of hearing! Burt wrote all the tunes – and the album's a wonderful romp, with lots of odd twists and turns that are quite different from Burt's usual bag (baby!), but which still have all of the charm of his best work. A few performances on the set are by Herb Albert & The Tijuana Brass, who do the completely chaotic "Casino Royale Theme" – and the lovely Dusty Springfield sings a versions of "Look Of Love" that has to be the best ever recorded! Other tracks include "Home James, Don't Spare The Horses", "Money Penny Goes For Broke", "The Venerable Sir James Bond", and "Hi There Miss Goodthighs". But even better is this cool version – which features the original LP presentation at the end, but begins with 33 tracks that replicate the film presentation of the music – and which include numbers not on the original album, and variations on the tunes too! Even includes two vocal numbers by Mike Redway – "Seven Bond In Heaven" and "Dream On James You're Winning" – and lots of musical surprises throughout! CD

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". CD

Posi tone, 2013. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
The Posi-tone label is turning out to be one of the best sources for old school Hammond sessions these days – and this sweet set from guitarist Will Bernard is great proof of that fact! Bernard plays with a tight sense of line and color that really takes us back to some of our favorites from the 60s – like Grant Green or Kenny Burrell – and he's set up here alongside some excellent Hammond from Brian Charette, who has a great ear for mixing up playful phrasing and a more powerful groove – a bit like Jack McDuff on late 60s Prestige, but very much his own bag too! The group's also got tenor and bass clarinet from John Ellis, and drums from Rudy Royston – and titles include a cover of "Dancing Days", plus "Dime Store Thriller", "Go West", "Sweet Spot", "PM Gone", and "Route 46".

Black HeatNo Time To Burn ... CD CD format
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

Elektra, 1977. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A sweet sweet set of electric 70s funk – recorded by Booker T during a brief, but well-needed reunion with the MGs! The sound here is quite different than Stax-era MGs – as Booker plays a range of keyboards, not just organ – and the grooves have these great jazz funk touches at the bottom – almost a CTI vibe at times, but packed with the tighter energy you'd expect from the group! Steve Cropper's guitar is great – super-fine, and razor-sharp – really helping cut a nice edge on the cuts – over bass from Donald Duck Dunn and drums from Willie Hall, who's the only new member of the group. In a way, the album feels like mid 70s efforts from Johnny Hammond or Jimmy Smith – sweetly soaring on a let-loose 70s vibe. Titles include the funky break track "Grab Bag", plus "Sticky Stuff", "Moto Cross", "Tie Stick", and "Space Nuts". LP, Vinyl record album

Tramp (Germany), 2015. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99
Totally wicked funk from Lucky Brown – a contemporary set, but one recorded with all the grit in the grooves you'd hear from some ancient studio sessions from the late 60s! Lucky's not just another funk revivalist – as he goes here for a sound that's never too perfect, and which often has a slight degree of distortion – of the type we love in the best muddy funky 45s we have in our collection, or which you might hear on some of the best vintage work by artists like Lyman Woodard or Stark Realith! And by that, we don't mean that the sound is bad – just that it's perfectly pitched to have the right sort of "funk" – never too clean, never too polished, and with a nicely trippy quality that especially comes through in a few of the album's longer jams. Titles include "Brown's Bag (parts 1 & 2)", "Golden Nugget", "Santosa", "Exquisite Corpse (part 1)", "Argon (parts 1 & 2)", "Negra Modelo", and "Chicken Rock". LP, Vinyl record album

Motown, 1977. Very Good+ ... $0.99
A great little concept album – and one that really shows the continuing sophistication and growth of Jerry Butler's music in the 70s! The record is dedicated to the "single girl" of the 70s (portrayed with the sad little photo of a brown bag lunch and a Gucci purse on the cover) – the new professional woman in the workplace – a surprisingly popular theme for many other singers of the period, but handled here by Butler with way more poise and class than any of his contemporaries! Arrangements are by James Mack and Paul Wilson, who often bring a great mellow mode to the best cuts – almost a Leon Ware style of laidback sensuality. A few other tunes are groovers, but still fit in just right – and titles include "Suite For The Single Girl", "I Wanna Do It To You", "Music In Her Dreams", "Only Pretty Girls", "Let's Go Get Out Of Town", "Chalk It Up", and "Ms Fine".

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".

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 DavisChronicle – The Complete Prestige Recordings 1951 to 1956 (8 CD set) ... CD CD format
Prestige, Mid 50s. Used 8CDs ... $59.99
Wow! An incredible collection of seminal recordings from one of the most important figures in modern music! All of Miles' recordings fro the Prestige label in one place, bound up in a well annotated box, and given a complete discography and lots of excellent photos. It's almost too much astounding jazz in one place! The list of sidemen and great LPs is almost too long to go over, but in addition to Miles' remarkable Cookin'/Relaxin'/Walkin'/Workin' sessions, there's all of the material issued as Bags' Groove, with the Modern Jazz Giants and loads more, and some of the stellar accompanists includes John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Charlie Parker, Lee Konitz, Red Garland, Thelonious Monk, Horace Silver, Milt Jackson, Paul Chambers, Art Blakey, Philly Joe Jones, and Max Roach, just to name a few. There's far too many tracks to list here, but there's takes of "Blue Room", "Conception", "Compulsion", "Miles Ahead", "Blue Haze", "Airegin", "Bag's Groove", "The Man I Love", "Green Haze", "Dr Jackle", "The Theme", "Trane's Blues", "'Round About Midnight", "Half Nelson", "My Funny Valentine" and loads more!

Paul DesmondPure Desmond (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
CTI, 1974. Used ... $2.99
An album of sublime understatement from alto genius Paul Desmond! Desmond was one of the few players who resisted the lure of the 70s electric CTI sound – and stuck pretty much in his usual bag of easy-going grooves, blowing alto with effortless ease, working here with a quartet that includes Ed Bickert on guitar, Connie Kay on drums, and Ron Carter on bass. The tracks are short, but have that magical Desmond quality to them – no tricks, no electric work, just pure and simple coolly blown jazz. Titles include "Everything I Love", "Squeeze Me", "I'm Old Fashioned", "Nuages", and "Why Shouldn't I". CD features 2 bonus tracks "Wave" and "MASH". CD

Nancy DupreeGhetto Reality ... LP LP format
Folkways/Mississippi, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 21.99
Kind of silly – but also pretty darn hip! Nancy Dupree was one of the most righteous music teachers you could ever have – and here, she's working with some young kids from the rough side of Rochester, in an album of simple tunes that have a surprisingly soulful edge to them. Nancy plays piano, and the kids sing either solo or in ensemble format. The record's got a starkness that's extremely compelling, and it's a lot stronger than we expected, even if it's not like some of the funky stuff on the Folkways label. Includes a song called "James Brown" that has all the kids making grunts and groans ala 60s James, then singing about his shift from a process to an afro! Other titles include "I Want", "What Do I Have?", "Bag Snatchin", and "Docta King". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great heavy vinyl and cover – feels a lot like the original!)

Mark EricMidsummer's Day Dream (expanded edition) ... CD CD format
Uni/Now Sounds (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $8.99
An incredible fantasy of California pop – recorded too late in the 60s to really strike big, but with a perfect approach to mid-decade Beach Boys at their best! Mark Eric's clearly borrowing plenty of pages from Brian Wilson's bag for this set (and maybe Brian Hyland too) – and the original tunes have the beautiful quality of Wilson's best writing in the pre-Pet Sounds years – dealing with deeper themes, but in a very careful and sometimes guarded way that makes the tunes that much more heartfelt. The arrangements are Wilson-inspired too – but have a more mature style than the lyrics – handled by Vic Briggs with a quality that's similar to the brilliant Surf Symphony album of the same year – almost a dreamy remembrance of the sweeter side of California earlier in the decade, but undercut with some of the bluer, more adult modes of the time. Backings feature swirling strings, ringing vibes, and some groovy guitar – and Mark's vocals are often recorded in a way that harmonizes them against the lead – a one-man vocal group, with echoes of The Four Freshmen at times. Titles include "California Home", "Move With The Dawn", "Laura's Changing", "Lynn's Baby", "Just Passing By", "Sad Is The Way That I Feel", and "Take Me With You". Newly expanded edition features a whopping 16 bonus tracks – mono mixes of some cuts from the album, some very cool airline commercials, and rare tracks that include "Build Your Own Dreams", "Place For The Summer", "No Days No Nights", "Naked Lady", "Goin Native","Summer Goes This Way", and "Hey In The Water".

Fania All-StarsLive At The Red Garter Vol 2 ... CD CD format
Fania, 1972. New Copy ... $12.99
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! CD

Gap BandGap Band (1979) ... CD CD format
Mercury/Universal (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99
The start of the legendary second chapter for the Gap Band – the point when the group had reemerged as the tight funky trio of the Wilson Brothers, with a groove that would really set them up nicely for the 80s! This first album in the new format has a wonderfully tight feel – still plenty of sharp edges that echo their earlier groove, but a leaner quality too – one that's got the bass and drums snapping together wonderfully, really setting the tone for the heaviest grooves. There's also a few mellower cuts too – which really sound great, and give the record the same sort of balance you might hear on work by Heaven & Earth at the time. War's Lonnie Simmons produced – and held the cash bag all the way to the bank! Titles include "I'm In Love", "Got To Get Away", "Messin With My Mind", "Shake", "Baby Baba Boogie", "Open Your Mind Wide", and "I Can Sing". CD
