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.

✨✧ OV WrightTreasured Moments – Back Beat/ABC Singles 1965 to 1975 ... LP
Playback (Poland), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great run of records from the mighty OV Wright – a hell of a deep soul singer who we'd rank right up there with James Carr, Otis Redding, and other known southern greats of the late 60s! Yet OV never fully got his due, and we're not sure why – as the material on these vintage singles is stunning right from the very first track – no clunkers, no filler, no bad moves at all – just a rock-solid legacy of soul music that spans the space of a decade in this excellent collection – which includes early work on the Texas indie Back Beat, then a shift to the bigger ABC label when that company absorbed the indie into their fold. Like Bobby Blue Bland – another contemporary who made a similar label shift – Wright didn't lose anything in the transition, and continued to sound wonderful right up to his final years of recording, before his untimely early passing in 1980. Titles include "Afflicted", "When You Took Your Love From Me", "Henpecked Man", "I've Been Searching", "Oh Baby Mine", "You're Gonna Make Me Cry", "Ace Of Spades", "I'll Take Care Of You", "Heartaches Heartaches", "Love The Way You Love", "A Nickel & A Nail", "Don't Let My Baby Ride", and "When You Took Your Love From Me".

OV WrightOnly For Tonight ... LP
Back Beat, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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

Steve Coleman & Five ElementsDef Trance Beat – Modalities Of Rhythm ... CD
BMG, 1995. Used ... $8.99
Creative sounds from alto saxophonist Steve Coleman – working here with his Five Elements group, at a time that was one of his most productive! The group have an angular sort of swing – a style that certainly grows out of some more exploratory moments in 80s mainstream jazz, yet which here comes across with a warmer, more acoustic feel overall – never nearly as bogged down by some of the too academic moments that could hold back some of their contemporaries, or even Coleman at some earlier moments. Rhythms are stiff, but still nice and warm – thanks to drums from Gene Lake – and in addition to Steve's alto, the group also features piano from Andy Milne, bass from Reggie Washington, and a bit of tenor from Ravi Coltrane. Titles include "Dogon", "Flint", "Veritable Pedagogy", "The Khu", "Pad That", and "Multiplicity Of Approaches". CD

Ray ColumbusNow You Shake – The Definitive Beat, R&B, Pop, & Psych Recordings 1963 to 1969 ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
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".

✨✧ Sam CookeNight Beat (remastered edition) ... CD
RCA/Legacy, 1963. Used ... $4.99
Wonderful mellow work from Sam Cooke – and a set that's recorded with a sound that's very much in keeping with the "night beat" that you might expect from the title! In fact, there's not so much a "beat" as a simple easy groove – a gentle sort of "night" feeling, with some piano in the lead on many tracks, and backing by a larger group conducted by Rene Hall – a great setting that lets Cooke hit some of his most soulful moments on record from the time! The album includes many lesser-known Cooke performances – including "Trouble Blues", "You Gotta Move", "Fool's Paradise", "Lost & Lookin", and "Mean Old World". CD

✨✧ Young-Holt UnlimitedBeat Goes On ... LP
Brunswick, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $4.99
The beat goes on, and just keeps getting better and better too – thanks to the growing sophistication of the Young/Holt duo, once they broke away from Ramsey Lewis! The bass and drums share equal space in the spotlight – and the production has the former really up high in the mix, which makes for a non-stop sort of energy that begins with the group's jazzy roots, but often takes off tighter flights into instrumental funk! And unlike the group's initial trio outing for Brunswick, this album has some great larger arrangements from Sonny Sanders – who brings in lots of excellent funky touches. Titles include a number of strong original instrumentals like "Yon Gimme Thum", "Dig Her Walk", "Baby Your Light Is Out", "Yum Yum", and "Doin' The Thing" – plus covers like "Listen Here", "Good Vibrations", and "The Beat Goes On".

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.

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".

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

✨✧ Herbie MannBeat Goes On ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Used ... Out Of Stock
The beat goes on, and Herbie Mann gets plenty darn groovy – serving up these short, soulful tunes that really pack a sweet little punch – thanks in part to some excellent work on vibes by the young Roy Ayers! Ayers' rings out next to Herbie's flute in a very cool way – almost Latin, but a bit groovier overall, with some echoes of bossa and 60s soundtrack jazz – all mixed with deeper soul currents that are very much in the best 60s jazz spirit of Atlantic Records! Jimmy Wisner handles the arrangements, and also plays some mean piano. Titles include Dave Pike's "Dream Garden", which was arranged by Pike himself – plus Herbie Mann's "West African High Life", and Herbie Hancock's "Hey Ho" – as well as the cuts "No Matter What Shape", "More Rice Than Peas, Please", "Soul Montuno", and "The Beat Goes On".

✨✧ BootsBeat – The Complete Telefunken Years ... CD
Telefunken/RPM (UK), 1965/1967. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
These guys must have been one of the coolest combos going in Germany during the 60s – especially as they were working behind the wall in West Berlin, cooking up some mighty soulful sounds to rival the best British beat groups of the time! In truth, these guys could easily be mistaken for the cool London groups who effortlessly mixed up R&B, soul, and raw rock influences – but there's also a nicely individual vibe to these guys, too – and a quality that really draws heavily from soul music at times, and which continues well onto their later material here on the set! Vocals are wonderfully raw – as are the heavy drums and guitar – and although they add in a bit more horns to their later cuts, it only seems to give the whole thing even more punch than before. 2CD set features the full albums Beat With The Boots and Here Are The Boots – plus 10 more bonus tracks, including some rare live recordings. Titles include "Mama Keep Your Big Mouth Shut", "Green Onions", "Get Out Of My Life Woman", "I Can Not Believe", "Searching Days", "I Feel Good", "It Was A Private Affair", "Comin Home", "Crazy Enough For Me", "Gaby", "Watch Your Step", "Jump Back Baby", "Dimples< "Remember", and "I Wish You Would".

✨✧ VariousDetroit Soul – Thirty Rare Gems From The Vaults Of La Beat Records ... CD
Grapevine (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Key proof that Detroit was easily one of the most fertile cities for soul music back in the 60s – because even in an obscure collection like this, nearly every track is a winner! The La Beat label flourished briefly in the Motor City in the last half of the 60s, and although the company never charted big, it recorded some incredible work by lesser-knowns – often in a style that's a fair bit different than the Detroit hits of the period! There's a grittier feel to many of the sides here – a style that seems to borrow a bit of influence from southern soul, especially in the way that the vocals are allowed plenty of space to open up with lots of raspy, crackly notes that really give a nice edge to the tunes. Instrumentation is tight, but often a bit raunchy – with a funky undercurrent to the soul that creates a real difference from sweeter Detroit 60s singles. As with other Grapevine collections, the package is wonderful – filled with 30 tracks that barely saw the light of day in the 60s, supported by detailed thoughtful notes on both the label and the artists! Titles include "Take It From Me" by Clifford Binns, "Try Them" by Al Williams, "I'm Gonna Love You" by Edward Hamilton, "Be Happy For Me" by The Masqueraders, "Tired Of Being Your Fool" by Nelson Sanders, "I Can Make It" by Don Hart, "I Am Nothing (inst)" by The LPTs, "Modern Day Woman" by James Shorter, "This Won't Change" by Lester Tipton, "My Darling Baby" by Edward Hamilton & The Natural Looks, "It's In My Mind" by Don Hart & James Shorter, "I Got The Power" by The Masqueraders, "A Wet Pillow" by Lou Beatty, and "Long Cool Summer" by The LPTs.

Big Beat (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing little set that will completely transform your understanding of folk music in the 60s – one that picks up with a second waves of folkies who were really opening their minds to the changes in rock music at the time! The styles here all blur wonderfully – as more standard 60s folk music comes into play with psychedelic instrumentation, tripped-out production, harmony pop, and a range of different modes that all make for some incredibly far-reaching work. All tunes come from the Vanguard Records catalog – a label who were making some initial waves in the early 60s, but who really came into their own during this heady era – and helped set the tone for the huge singer/songwriter boom in the mainstream years to come. The set features a total of 22 tracks from Vanguard – titles that include "Honey" by Eric Anderson, "Back On The Street Again" by Steve Gillette, "Someone To Talk My Troubles To" by Judy Roderick, "No Rest For The Weary" and "You'll Never Know What's In My Heart" by The Hi-Five, "Reason To Believe" by Patrick Sky, "Young Blues" by The Vagrants, "Changes" by Jonathan & Leigh, "Reno Nevada" by Richard & Mimi Farina, "January Morning" and "When I Was A Cowboy" by Ian & Sylvia, and "Long Black Cadillac" by Jackie Washington.

Tony AllenHome Cooking ... LP
Comet (France), 2002. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $21.99
Stunning work from superdrummer Tony Allen – light years ahead of his original Afro Beat recordings with Fela! Tony's a consummate artist who's never stopped growing, and he's taken the energy of the Afro Funk revival of recent years, and used it to inspire him in new creative directions. The core rhythmic approach here certainly stretches back to Allen's classic work – but on top of that are a lot more sounds and influences, everything from sweet soulful funk to hip hop, broken beat, and beyond. Recorded in London with guest work by Eska, Ty, Damon Albarn, Mary Lee, and Norman Jemott – and titles that include "Home Cooking", "What's Your Fashion", "Eparapo", "Crazy Afrobeat", "Don't Fight", "Woman To Man", "Kindness", and "Every Season".

Each member of The Band brings such inimitable textures – Garth Hudson's imposing organ grooves, Richard Manuel's aching tenor vocals, Rick Danko's voice and distinctive bass lines, Levon Helm's behind-the-beat drumming and the country wisdom of his voice, Robertson's guitar mastery – this really was THE Band.
