DeepPsychedelic Moods Of The Deep (3LP set) ... LP
Cameo/Lion, 1966. New Copy 3LP Gatefold (reissue)... $36.99
The west coast had The Seeds, and the east coast had The Deep – a group known only for this one album, but a key garage psyche group nonetheless! This record's a gem through and through – oddly (almost mistakenly) issued on the mostly-pop Cameo label in the mid 60s, but recorded with a fantastic studio technique that has lots of odd electronics and sound effects sneaking in alongside the fuzzy guitars and earthy vocals. The band were mostly a studio project between Rusy Evans and Mark Barkan of Freak Scene, and also features work by a young David Bromberg – and although they've only left this one record to their legacy, it's a heck of a great album to leave! Titles include "Color Dreams", "Pink Ether", "Turned On", "When Rain Is Black", "Psychedelic Moon", "Shadows On The Wall", "Trip #76", and "On Off Off On". Amazing 3LP pressing – with three more sides of outtakes from the sessions – plus more material by the Inner Sanctum, a related group! LP, Vinyl record album
(Housed in a nice tip-on jacket – super great production!)

Deep JazzHeaven & Earth ... CD
Perfect Toy (Germany), 2009. New Copy ... $11.99
An album that's every bit as hip as you'd expect from its Sam Rivers-inspired cover image – a beautiful tribute to the modal jazz scene of the 60s, particularly the work of John Coltrane and some of his followers on Impulse Records! Apart from a cover of "Naima", though, the set's hardly a simple rehash of Coltrane modes – as all other tunes are originals, and the band delivers them with a core piano trio groove, then adds in flute, tenor, and soprano sax on different tracks! Rhythm is at the heart of the record, and bassist/leader Jerker Kluge really moves the group with a pulsating sound on his instrument – a deep, soulful tone that's matched beautifully by the brightly soaring piano lines of Jo Junghanss. A few cuts feature vocals by Julia Fehenberger, who further deepens the soul of the record – and the whole thing's a massive killer – like finding some lost Saba/MPS gem from the late 60s, with all the European jazz genius you'd expect from such a reference. Titles include "Heaven & Earth", "Naima", "Orange Flower", "Red Smoke", "Starlings Talk", and "Black Tiger". CD

Buddy DeFrancoI Hear Benny Goodman & Artie Shaw – The Complete Plays Benny Goodman & Artie Shaw Sessions Vol 2 ... CD
Verve/Lonehill (Spain), 1957. Used 2 CDs ... $5.99
Buddy DeFranco plays tunes associated with Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw – but in a completely different way than before – with a wider-open swing for the 50s! The work here is all small combo, not big band – and there's a free-flowing groove that's totally great – a sound that carries echoes of the earlier years, but which comes across with that modern inflection to swing that made Buddy's years at Verve so great. Few players could come up with a balance of modes as great as this – and on the 2 sessions in the set, DeFranco's clarinet is caught alongside trumpet from either Don Fagerquist or Ray Linn, tenor from Georgie Auld, vibes from Victor Feldman or Larry Bunker, piano from Jimmy Rowles or Carl Perkins, guitar from Barney Kessel, bass from Leroy Vinnegar or Joe Mondragon, and drums from Stan Levey or Milt Holland. Second volume is a 2CD set – with 22 titles that include "Don't Be That Way", "After You've Gone", "Flying Home", "Soft Winds", "Limehouse Blues", "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes", "I Surrender Dear", "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise", and "All The Things You Are".

Miguel De DeusBlack Soul Brothers ... CD
Lion, New Copy ... About August 15, 2017
Fantastic work from Miguel De Deus – an artist with more than enough funky talent to live up to the ambitious title of the album – given that he started his career working in the famous Os Brazoes combo! That group were a key part of the Tropicalia years, and mixed up a heady brew of funk and psych – and by the time of these tracks, Miguel is out on his own, working in an even more soul-drenched style that shares plenty with the New York funk scene of the time – particularly the sharp, tight modes of Fatback Band, and some of the groups recording for the De-Lite Records label! Lyrics are all in Portuguese, but the grooves are very universal – and the album's got a sort of global funk appeal that you'll only find in a rare few records from the Samba Soul generation of the 70s. Titles include "Black Soul Brother", "Cinco Anos", "Mister Funk", "Flaca Louca", "Pode Se Queimar", and "Fabrica De Papeis". CD

Bill DoggettHonky Tonk Popcorn ... LP
King, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Funky funky Hammond – a rare late 60s album from organist Bill Doggett, done with some help from James Brown – and a set that's unlike anything Doggett ever recorded before – or since! There's a blasting groove to the record right from the start – thanks to help from The James Brown Band on the leadoff cut – but even when they drop out, and Doggett's combo goes out on their own, the sound is still amazing – tight, soulful, and very much in a funky 45 style all the way through! Drums are hard, the organ is nice and fluid, and the sound is prime late 60s instrumental funk – a groove that Doggett never managed to reach again, which makes this record a real standout treasure. The album includes the legendary funky break cuts "Honky Tonk" and "Honky Tonk Popcorn", plus lots of other nice groovers, like "A Doozy", "Mad", "Slippin In", and "Corner Pocket".

Otto Donner TreatmentJazz Liisa 10 ... LP
Svart (Finland), 1973. New Copy ... $19.99
Otto Dorner's just the conductor on this set – but it's also clear that he's a very musically-minded fellow, as the action he gets from the group on the session is really wonderful! The players are all sharp-edged instrumentalists who represent the cream of the Finnish jazz scene of the time – Juhani Aaltonen on tenor and flute, Markku Johansson on trumpet, Seppo Paakkunainen on baritone, and Christer Boustedt on alto – all musicians who really bring a lot of their individual voices to the performance, and are given great space to solo by Donner – in a way that reminds us of some of the more open-ended bigger band performances from the MPS Records releases of the early 70s. Titles include "Och Tusen Tusen Strala Ock", "For Her", and "Saxballad". LP, Vinyl record album

The London fog has cleared – and the Warner/Elektra vaults have given us The Doors first-ever live recordings – from a time when the group was known as The Band From Venice!

Carl DrewoEuropean Jazz Sounds ... CD
Be! (Germany), Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
Unreleased work by one of the strongest tenor players to emerge from the German scene in the postwar years – and one of the few who could go head to head with American giants like Johnny Griffin or Eddie Lockjaw Davis – who were both his bandmates in the Clark Boland Big Band! The music here is from before those years – small combo sides that Carl Drewo recorded for German Radio from the years 1959 through 1966 – hardly the kind of scratchy, staticky work you would have heard over the airwaves – and instead, some crystal-clear recordings that stand with the best of the too-small work in Drewo's catalog! The mode is hardbop, and Carl is smoking throughout – with some of the deeper tone of the best Verve Records tenorists at times, in combos that shift throughout – but include Rob Pronk, Bora Rokovic, and Francis Coppieters on piano; Maffy Faley and Shake Keane on trumpet; Derek Humble on alto; Wilton Gaynair on additional tenor; and Jiggs Wigham on trombone. Titles include "Whims Of Chambers", "Chicago Calling", "Sumphin", "Taboo", "Dixemus", "Chart Of My Heart", and "If This Isn't Love". CD

Bob DylanReal Royal Albert Hall 1966 Concert ... CD
Legacy, 1966. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99 15.98
The legendary and for the first time legitimate release of the 1966 Royal Albert Hall performance by Bob Dylan and (most of) The Band! For decades, the bootleg "Royal Albert Hall" performance, infamous for the cagey audience reaction to the newly electrified Dylan ("Judas!") did the rounds before seeing official release in the late 90s – but that concert was actually recorded at Manchester Free Trade Hall on May 17 of '66, when the actual Royal Albert Hall concert is THIS one, recorded on May 29. Same city, same dual and separate acoustic and electric setlists but equally compelling performance, in a different room – and honestly, it's great to listen and get a snapshot of a vitally evolving artist, sans the heavy historical baggage attached to the preceding set's legacy! Includes "She Belongs To Me", "Desolation Row", "Visions Of Johanna", "Just Like A Woman", "Tell Me, Momma:, "Baby Let Me Follow You Down", "One Too Many Mornings", "Like A Rolling Stone" and more.

Charles EarlandBlack Drops ... LP
Prestige, 1970. Very Good- ... $9.99
A monster – and Charles Earland's second album for Prestige, the follow-up to his groundbreaking Black Talk album! This set's as great as that classic set – a tight batch of groovers that features Earland's Hammond work right out front, grooving away in a soaring, exploratory style that blew away most other jazz organ players at the time. Here, Earland's got an amazing talent for really stretching out, yet never losing the groove – infusing tunes with incredible soulfulness, and making them dance out nicely, even at the farthest reaches of his solos. The band's great, too – with Maynard Parker on guitar, Jimmy Heath on tenor and soprano, and Virgil Jones on trumpet – and all tracks are great, with titles that include "Sing A Simple Song", "Lazy Bird", "Letha", "Buck Green", and a great cover of "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head"!

✨✧ Earth Wind & FireAll 'N All ... LP
Columbia, 1977. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
Genius, pure genius! It was hard for Earth, Wind & Fire to go wrong at this point – and the album's a stellar blend of jazz, funk, and soul, all done in that perfect style they'd hit by the mid 70s. And even though this one was a monster album, of the type that you see in everyone's record collection from the time, it's still got a freshness that we always forget about – and lots of nice twists and turns that show that the band hadn't lost their more sophisticated roots. Case in point is the wonderful "Brazilian Rhyme", a short little groover that you'll instantly recognize as a sample from the first Tribe Called Quest album. Other tracks include "Jupiter", "In The Marketplace", "Magic Mind", "Runnin", "Be Ever Wonderful", and "Serpentine Fire". LP, Vinyl record album

Earth Wind & FireSpirit ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A big hit for the group – and a great album of smooth funky soul! Spirit is a perfect example of the way that Earth Wind & Fire could tighten things up, yet still keep them real – holding onto the deeply spiritual side that first made them great – but also focusing their energy towards a wider audience that showed their influence for years! Of course, with Charles Stepney helping out on production, it's hard to miss – and he's one of the few cats who could handle a blend like this so well. The compression in the band's playing is impeccable – with just the right mix of spacey spiritualism, sophisticated jazzy playing, and a straight ahead love of the soulful hook. Includes the instrumentals "Biyo" and "Departure", plus the vocal tracks "Earth Wind & Fire","Burnin Bush", "Spirit", "Imagination", and "Getaway", all produced to perfection by Maurice White and Charles Stepney!

Earth Wind & FireThat's The Way Of The World ... LP
CBS, 1975. Very Good Gatefold ... $8.99
Amazing! Earth Wind & Fire's ultimate moment of the 70s – and a perfect blending of all their influences that stands as a lasting tribute to their super-huge effect on soul music! The record features all aspects of the band coming into perfect cohesion – bassy funk, mellow soul, and Afrocentric jazz – all expertly handled by the great Charles Stepney, who still has the same rich talent for blending styles that he had while working at Chess/Cadet during the glory days of the late 60s. Some of these songs have been played to death (and covered so much) over the years that it's often easy to forget what a crowning moment this was for former underground soul heroes Earth, Wind & Fire – but we'll never cease to be amazed at the power of their mid-70s work, and this album's the best of the best. Titles include "Shining Star", "That's The Way Of The World", "Reasons", "Africano", "See The Light", and "Happy Feelin". LP, Vinyl record album

Cleveland EatonCollector's Series ... CD
Eaton, 1997. Used ... $6.99
A lost large group recording from bassist Cleveland Eaton – a surprising later entry into his catalog of music! The players here aren't named, but Eaton's clearly working with a large group – running through older soul jazz big band styles of the 60s – as you might hear from Gerald Wilson, but also with a strong undercurrent of Basie at times too! The vibe's surprisingly great – handled with a strong sound throughout, way more than you'd guess from the home-made looking package – and if anything, we wish we knew the players, so we could better evaluate the nature of the recording. Titles include "CEO Theme", "Blue Rain", "Square Ass Keydate Boogie", "A Train", "Freckie Face", "The Heat Is On", "All Of Me", and "Wind Machine". CD

El Michels AffairEnter The 37th Chamber ... CD
Fat Beats, 2009. Used ... $8.99
Cinematic funky soul instrumentals from the El Michels Affair – the loose NYC collective's long awaited full length nod to the Wu Tang Clan! The crew brings their tried and true slow rolling and dirty funk to their interpretations of classic Wu Tang tracks, with some straight up beautiful sophisticated soul backdrops, too, and Leon & the crew pull it all off masterfully! The RZA's sonic stamp is too innovative and idiosyncratic for a simple live band rehash, and the group is wise to use the famous crackling sample built soundscapes to craft both an homage to the Wu Tang's best material, as well as the 70s funk, soul, and cinema sounds that informed them in the first place. A few of the tracks first blew our minds as funky 45s, and this fully formed set was worth the wait – from the moody organ funk of "Can It All Be So Simple", the funky drummer rhythms of "Uzi (Pinky Ring)", the string accented moods of "Heaven And Hell", the brass band and children's chorus cover of "Shimmy Shimmy Ya" and lots more! Other tracks include "Glaciers Of Ice", "Incarcerated Scarfaces", "Bring Da Ruckus" and more. The CD version includes an unlisted bonus track. CD

Daptone/Voodoo Funk, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Monumental Afro Soul from El Rego Et Ses Commandos – El Rego's best recordings from the late 60s to early 70s – a beautifully done compilation put together by Daptone and Frank Gossner, the deep digging West African music expert behind Voodoo Funk! Theophile Do-Rego is a legend in his native Benin, essentially credited as the godfather of Benin funk – but to date, he hasn't been celebrated around the world nearly as famously as the superstars of African music hailing from Nigeria and Ghana. That's something that can change really quickly if enough people pick up this truly great compilation of pioneering recordings. Singer El Rego and his excellent, diversely capable band – sax and flute by Baboni Oudou, sax by Michel Diogo, guitar by Oscar De Souza, trumpet by Emmanuel Ganssounou, guitar by Roger Coffi, tumba by Marcelin Kpohonon, additional vocals by Christian Agueh, and bass by band leader Paul Hounnou – take a tighter approach to funky soul. Just a couple tracks on this set roll past the 4 minute mark – which gives it a tighter soul sound, along with some Benin blues and some riveting JB-indebted vocal affections. We owe Voodoo Funk and Daptone big for putting this together! The CD comes with a great booklet featuring notes by Gossner and personal reflections by El Rego. Includes "Feeling You Got", "Zon Dede", "E Nan Mian Duku", "Dkobime", "Dis-Moi Oui", "Djobime", "Hessa" (the centerpiece of the album, 3 minutes of Afro Soul perfection. . .the whole set is great, but this track is unforgettable), "Kpon Fi La", "Do Do Baya", "Vive Le Renouveau", "Achuta", "Cholera" and "Ke Amon-Gbetchea".
