VariousScratch My Back – Pye Beat Girls 1963 to 1968 ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 18.99
Fantastic girl pop from mid 60s London – tunes that go way past the sweeter hit modes of singers like Petula Clark and Sandie Shaw – and which often have some surprisingly soulful currents, too! All the work here is from the Pye Records studios of the time – a very groovy label who've given us some excellent jazz, rock, and instrumental sides – but who seem especially well-suited to bring all that experience to bear when they work with female singers! There's a bounce and groove to most numbers here, making the Brit blue-eyed tracks surprisingly strong play for a soulful dancefloor – and titles include "Da Di Da Da" by The Satin Bells, "Something To Give" by Nita Rossi, "Come On Baby" by Kim D, "Scratch My Back" by Jan Panter, "Every Day" by Billie Davis, "Now That You've Made Up Your Mind" by Val McKenna, "He Doesn't Love Me" by The Breakaways, "We Were Lovers" by Sandra Barry, "It's Hard To Believe It" by Glenda Collins, "I've Found Love" by Sharon Tandy, "It's So Fine" by Dee King, and "He Knows I Love Him Too Much" by Glo Macari.

✨✧ VariousLivin The Night Life – 80s New York Garage Classics ... CD
Back Beat (UK), 1980s. Used ... $8.99
Not just the sort of garage you might guess from the title – but also a batch of early 80s numbers from the New York scene – the kind of club cuts that played strongly back in the legendary years of Paradise Garage! Most tracks are the original 12" mix, which means they're nice and long – and there's a good mix of street soul, pre-house, and post-disco elements going on here – a nicely varied blend of tracks that includes "Ma Foom Bay (love chant mix)" by Cultural Vibe, "You Don't Know (rmx)" by Serious Intention, "Weekend" by Class Action, "I Like What You're Doing To Me" by Young & Co, "Treat Her Sweeter" by Paul Simpson Connection, "In & Out Of My Life" by Adeva, "Hupendin Muziki Wangu" by KID, "Happiness Is Just Around The Bend" by Cuba Gooding, "Go Bang #5" by Dinosaur L, and "Music Is The Answer" by Colonel Abrams.

✨✧ OV WrightOnly For Tonight ... LP
Back Beat, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A strange reworked version of OV Wright's famous 8 Men album – presented here with slightly different tracks! An early high point in the career of OV Wright – the kind of "cut above" work that really got him noticed right away – a subtle blend of soul, blues, and more sophisticated styles – a bit like Bobby Blue Bland at his best, but sung in a much more sweetly soulful tone! The backings are great – rich and full of feeling, and never in a cliched sort of way – and the tracks are all great too – mostly lesser-known numbers that get past too-familiar southern soul standards. Titles include "Why Don't You Believe Me", "Don't Want To Sit Down", "You're Gonna Make Me Cry", "If It's Only For Tonight", and "You've Been Crying". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousLove Hit Me – Decca Beat Girls 1962 to 1970 ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $14.99
The British scene of the 60s was filled with some tremendous work from a huge range of female artists – not just the bigger international names, like Lulu or Petula Clark, but also a host of even cooler, even groovier gals – like the artists collected on this set! There's a special sound to UK girl pop of the time – often a strong influence from soul music, which makes for some excellent rhythms throughout – that mod love of American R&B, moved into some even hipper territory during the beat years that span most of this collection. And amongst British labels, Decca was maybe the one with its ear most to the ground – able to pick up some great overlooked talents and get them onto singles, even if they never cut a full album – with a continued legacy of tracks that could even cross over to the Northern Soul scene at times. This package serves up a stunning array of these Decca label gems – with titles that include "Hey Boy" by Barry St John, "Little Boy" by Goldie & The Gingerbreads, "Poor Old Johnny" by Twinkle, "Love Hit Me" by The Orchids, "I'm In Love With You" by Billie Davis, "No No No" by Dana Gillespie, "That's Right Baby" by Marianne Faithful, "Where The Good Times Are" by Beverley, "Something Beautiful" by Adrienne Poster, "I Wanna Go Back There Again" by Truly Smith, "I'll Come Running Over" by Lulu, and "I Stand Accused Of Loving You" by The Satin Bells. 24 tracks in all.

✨✧ Dos Santos Anti-Beat OrquestaCafeteando/Camino Infernal/Phantom Weight ... 7-inch
Electric Cowbell, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweetly-burning organ line kicks this one off – folding back again and again on itself, in some minimalist wave – while the group's very lively Latin percussion builds and builds, as a trombone comes in for a great lead line – and chorus vocals make the whole thing really soar! The flipside's got an echoey guitar line on "Camino Infernal" – almost surf-like – but mixed with lots more percussion, and relayed in a bit of distorted production – before "Phantom Weight" takes over, as more of a hard-driving bit of funk overall! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Gingko Press, 2005. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
If you've ever wondered what the homes, studios, crates, shelves and work spaces of some of your favorite DJs and producers look like, here's a wonderful window, for peeking into the personal spaces of some of greatest in the game!

✨✧ John Barry/Adam FaithBeat Girl (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/El (UK), 1960. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of John Barry's first true moments of genius – recorded back when he was the leader of a fab little instrumental combo called the John Barry 7, and was tagged to do some soundtrack work that would forever change the rest of his career! The album's got some incredible instrumental tunes that mix electric guitar and beatnik jazz in a mode that's keeping with the juvenile delinquent theme of the film – with some strings sneaking in to cheese things up a bit, but in a great way that only makes the tunes sound even better! Adam Faith sings vocals on "The Beat Girl Song", "Made You", and "I Did What You Told Me" – and other tunes include "Blues For Beatnicks", "Blondie's Strip", "Beat Girl", "Time Out", "The Sharks", and "The City 2000 AD". This El UK edition includes bonus tracks by Gillian Hills, The John Barry Sound and Adam Faith. CD

✨✧ Ray ColumbusNow You Shake – The Definitive Beat, R&B, Pop, & Psych Recordings 1963 to 1969 ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great collection of work from Ray Columbus – a New Zealand rocker of mid 60s vintage, but one who works here with mod sounds to rival much bigger names in London at the time! The collection begins with a core set of work by Ray Columbus & The Invaders – a super-sharp combo who have this sense of energy and fire that's a bit like Paul Revere & The Raiders, but more tuned towards beat group sounds – boundless energy that makes the rest of the combo a perfect fit for Ray's spirited lead vocals. The set then moves into solo material that Columbus recorded on his own, and with groups The Challenge, The Art Collection, and Fire – all with stylistic shifts that follow some of the British forays into trippier sounds after the initial beat boom – or some more compelling, more sophisticated material that Columbus really carries off well as a solo act. Titles include "She's A Mod", "I'm Finding Out", "She's Back Again", "Till We Kissed", "We Want A Beat", "In Memory Of Today", "Happy In A Sad Kind Of Way", "Los Angeles", "I'm Good For You", "Polka Dot Resistance", "Kick Me", and "East Pinkerton Street".

Brian Auger & The TrinityDefinitely What/Open (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Atco/Fuel 2000, 1969. Used 2CD ... $24.99
A Brian Auger double-header – two great albums back to back in a single set! First up is Definitely What – Brian Auger's first album away from singer Julie Driscoll – and a landmark batch of funky organ work that made big waves in both the rock and jazz worlds at the time! Auger's really stretching out here – getting past the simple R&B of his roots, and going into a bubbling funky style that's clearly touched by chromatic inspirations from Wes Montgomery and Jimmy Smith – both of whom are referenced by some of the song structures on the set. The album's filled with killer organ-based instrumentals – some lean and stripped down, others full and rich – and all of them coming across with a richly soulful sound that you'd hardly expect from a member of the British rock scene! Titles include "Day In The Life", "Red Beans", "Definitely What!", and his classic "Bumpin' On Sunset". Open is great stuff – one of the amazing early albums from the team of Julie Driscoll and Brian Auger – kind of a next-generation to the Brit beat group sound of the mid 60s – one that moves beyond simple R&B modes, to bring in more sophisticated soul and jazz touches! Driscoll's vocals are amazing – some of the boldest belted out in the British scene at the time – and Auger's Hammond work really cooks throughout – at a level that easily makes him one of the best UK organists to hit the scene, amidst some very heady company in the 60s. There's a few bluesy moments, but our favorites are the funky ones – especially the group's reading of "Season Of The Witch", which is tremendous. Other cuts include "In & Out", "Black Cat", "Goodbye Jungle Telegraph", and "Break It Up". CD also features 5 bonus tracks – "Red Beans & Rice (parts 1 & 2)", "Save Me", "I've Gotta Go Now", "This Wheel's On Fire", and "The Road To Cairo". CD

Erykah BaduNew Amerykah Part One (4th World War) ... CD
Motown, 2008. New Copy ... $4.99 15.98
Badu is back with some of the deepest, funkiest and best music of her career – a mindblowing treatise for a New Amerykah – and what we'll consider an instant classic whether the world at large catches on or not! Erykah steps up this time with a set that balances the wilder impulses of her criminally underappreciated Worldwide Underground and more of a hip hop based, righteously grooving style – but still bursts with a freshness that's unrivaled to say the least. From free spirited soul, to sparse hip hop funk this record is both blunt and beautiful – with a slow-building emotional resonance that'll reach the most jaded souls. Modern soul music of the first order that gives us goosebumps from the first spin to the last beat! The album kicks off with Erykah riffing on and remixing Ramp's "American Promise" as an intro – and it just gets deeper from there. Producers/collaborators include Madlib, Sa-Ra, Karriem Riggins, James Poyser and ?uestlove. Amazing!!! Titles include "The Healer", "Me", "My People", "Soldier", "The Cell", "Twinkle", "Master Teacher", "The Hump" and "Telephone". The 9th Wonder produced single "Honey" is an unlisted bonus track. CD

Big Grams (Big Boi & Phantogram)Big Grams (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Epic, 2015. New Copy ... $16.99
Adventurous ATL hip hop veteran Big Boi teams up with NYC electro pop duo Phantogram as Big Grams! Big Boi has never lacked for creative ambition – his one time repuation as the straighter-laced half of Outkast sold him short back in the day – as he always had a incredible way of adapting his flow, phrasing and lyrical focus to a diverse range of production styles. Big Grams finds a nice middle ground between Phantogram's bright, melodic synth pop style and the more beat heavy needs of a dexterous MC. Sarah Barthel's lovely vocals as sweet as ever, and work suprisingly well when paired with Big Boi's distinctive rhymes. Titles include "Run For Your Life", "Lights On", "Fell In The Sun", "Put It On Her", "Goldmine Junkie", "Born To Shine" with Run The Jewels and "Drum Machine" with Skrillex. LP, Vinyl record album

Bodast (Steve Howe)Spectral Nether Street ... LP
Wah Wah (Spain), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
You may know Steve Howe as a key member of Yes during their glory days – but the guitarist had a rich resume of work that went back to the early 60s UK scene – including this great stint in the trio Bodast! The group was one that Howe worked with between his time with Tomorrow and Yes – and they've got a tight, stark sound that's different than either group – maybe a bit of the fuzz of Tomorrow, but almost some elements that point back towards Steve's beat years – although the guitar lines get a chance to really stretch out and do some wonderful things here. The material was recorded in 1968, and never issued at the time – and this superb vinyl pressing presents the rare original mix for the first time on vinyl – much grittier than a cleaned-up version that Howe handled in the 80s. Titles include "Black Leather Gloves", "Mr Jones", "Tired Towers", "Do You Remember", "Beyond Winter", "Nether Street", and "1000 Years". LP, Vinyl record album

William S BurroughsPlace Of Dead Roads ... Book
Fourth Estate (UK), 1983. New Copy ... $5.99 11.00
An overlooked gem from beat legend William S Burroughs – a book from the early 80s, a bit later vintage than his initial classics – but one that was also penned at a time when he was completely at home with his style! Plus, Burroughs is also more confident with his subject matter, too – there was obviously less chance of any sort of obscenity issue at the time than back at the start of the 60s – so this book is perhaps a bit more "out" than some of his others, especially given the story's setting in the old west. Yet as you can imagine from Burroughs, the book is anything but a conventional western – and instead explodes with all the sci fi currents and offbeat wit you'd expect. The names of the key characters are almost enough to hint at the vibe of the story – The Nihilistic Kid and The Crying Gun – and the softcover book is 268 pages. Book

✨✧ D'AngeloBlack Messiah ... CD
RCA, 2014. Used ... $4.99
D'Angelo comes back after many years awol from the studio – and the result is a stunning new step in his music! We've loved the man from day one – and some folks could well say that he really helped reinvigorate soul back in the 90s – and all his time away from the studio has definitely been formative, as he comes back here with a righteous power that really blows away all his previous work! D'Angelo still loves the slow beat and mellow approach to funk – but he's also picked up a lot more fuzz and freak, too – righteous energy that more than lives up to the Black Messiah promised by the title, as do the lyrics. Instrumentation includes work by Questlove on drums, Roy Hargrove on trumpet, and Jesse Johnson on guitar – and the grooves have these tripping, slow-percolating elements that really give the lyrics a great sort of crackle. More than worth the wait – as you'll hear on titles that include "Back To The Future (parts 1 & 2)", "Sugah Daddy", "Really Love", "1000 Deaths", "Ain't That Easy", "Betray My Heart", "The Door", and "Till It's Done (Tutu)".

BBE keeps up their flawless track record, propping up yet another of hip hop's finest producers in their terrific Beat Generation series, this time spotlighting the man who's name graced every other dope underground single from the late 90s onward. And as you might hope for, he's fully in his element here, spanning the full spectrum of modern beat wizardry, but with his signature touch on the filtered samples and smooth, tight beats – a sound that looks back on the sophisticated fusion of CTI, Dexter Wansel and the Mizell Brothers and integrates it into contemporary soul and hip hop deftly. Guest spots read like a new groove who's who, with everyone from longtime collaborators like Apani B Fly, Ticklah and The Jigmastas to members of Soulive and Shaun Escoffery taking a turn. 16 tracks in all, including "Drive", "Tune You Out", "Galactic Soul", "Idols", "All Up In It", "You Got To Live", "Rock (Unplugged)", "Fly Or Burn", "Music In Me (Come Alive)" and "The Originator".

Ed OG & Da BulldogsLife Of A Kid In The Ghetto ... LP
Polygram, 1991. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Ed OG's nice debut, with a slightly jazzy touch on the production and literate, intelligent lyrics. We really couldn't get with "Bug A Boo", but besides that, this first LP's solid from start to finish, from the days when that wasn't so uncommon. Drop the needle on this and head back in time to a day when backpacker wasn't necessarily a derogatory term, a beat wasn't a straight loop of a common sample, and rhyme skills included being able to follow the beat, which was typically at least a little bit funky. With the now classic "Be A Father To Your Child", plus standout tracks like "I'm Different", "Speak Upon It", "I Got To Have It" and "Life Of A Kid In The Ghetto". 12 tracks in all, also includes "Gotta Have Money", "Feel Like A Nut", "She Said It Was Great", "Dedicated To The Right Wingers", 'Let ME Tickle Your Fancy" and "Stop (Think For A Moment)".

Fame at last – and well-deserved fame too, because young Georgie's working here in a style that's unlike anybody else! The album's a brilliant mix of jazz, soul, and R&B – all filtered through a mod sort of London freshness, as early proof that the city could always take some great things from our own musical roots, and feed it back to us with a whole new flavor! Georgie's no copycat here, though – and the sound is instantly Fame-like – a style that's really not the sort that any Americans were doing at the time, and certainly never this well. Hard-burning Hammond colors most of the tunes here – played with a tightly vamping quality – but it's Georgie's charmingly crackling vocals that really win us over! Titles include "Gimme That Wine", "Pink Champagne", "Monkeying Around", "Green Onions", "Let The Sunshine In", "Get On The Right Track Baby", "I'm In The Mood For Love", and "I Love The Life I Live". CD also features 9 more bonus tracks – including "Yeh Yeh", "Preach & Teach", "Tom Hark Goes Blue Beat", "Madness", "Bend A Little", "Do Re Mi", and "One Whole Year Baby". CD

The restlessly inventive Madlib beats and production for Pinata, the excellent duo project with MC Freddie Gibbs! If you'll forgive us a little bit of repetition – because we KNOW we've written this before – there's just something extra riveting about Madlib's production work for straight-shooting, street lingo-slinging, no nonsense MCs. The freewheeling inspiration and bottomless depth of unpredictable sample funk is there, as always. It's just leaner, tighter and with a thicker backdrop of beats than on some the more freeform Madlib projects. We wouldn't dream of fronting on Freddie Gibbs' impeccable rhymes on the vocal version, but these moody instros are incredible, on par with Madlib's best work.
