✨✧ Ray Davies & The Button Down BrassThemes From The Exorcist, The French Connection, The Sting, & Other Great Films/Flashpoint ... CD
Pye/Vocalion (UK), 1974/1975. New Copy ... $18.99
Two great albums from Ray "funky trumpet" Davies – not the lead singer of The Kinks, but a heck of a groovy British bandleader from the 70s! First up is an album of Themes From The Exorcist and other films – all familiar movie themes from the early 70s, penned by artists like Michel Legrand and Lalo Schifrin – but served up here by Ray's Button Down Brass in a very cool style – compressed funk, ala the best crime/cop modes of the time – but with lots of individual touches that make the songs very different than the original versions! Titles include "Point Blank", "Enter The Dragon", "Klute", "French Connection", "Tubular Bells", "Cops & Robbers", and "Beyond Tomorrow". Flashpoint continues with some great film themes again served up in the magic Ray Davies mode – a funky big band approach that makes the record every bit as compelling as the American Cop Shows album from Henry Mancini – but maybe groovier, too. Titles include "Kojak", "Big Boss", "Man With The Golden Gun", "Mr Majestyk", "Magnum Force", "Fist Of Fury", and "Airport 1975". CD
(Hybrid Super Audio CD pressing – also works in standard players!)

Eddie Lockjaw Davis & Johnny GriffinFirst Set – Recorded Live At Mintons ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Very Good ... $19.99
During the early 60s, the team of Eddie Lockjaw Davis and Johnny Griffin was one of the most exciting unions in jazz. The two tenorists came from two different camps – Davis, the gutsy R&B soloist, Griffin, the hardbop powerhouse with a flair for the modern. Their pairing was an incredible stroke of genius and luck, and the albums they waxed – like this one – feature an approach hardly ever matched again by a two-tenor band. One of the best features of the group was their dedication to opening up the works of Monk into a freer blowing style – and they do so nicely on this album's two long takes of "Epistrophy" and "Well, You Needn't", both recorded live at the legendary Minton's Playhouse in Harlem (site of some of the band's best recordings.) Junior Mance heads up the soulful rhythm section that also includes Larry Gales and Ben Riley. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Miles Davis with Bob DoroughBlue Christmas/Devil May Care (colored vinyl) (2014 Black Friday Release) ... 7-inch
Columbia/Legacy, 1962. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $9.99
Legendary Christmas jazz tune from Miles Davis, producer-arranger Gil Evans and his Orchestra, and bebop vocalist Bob Dorough! Dorough's vocals work as a pretty sharp critique of crass Christmas commercialism, which is of course as relevant today as ever – as is the artistry of Miles, Gil and the band. Their version of Dorough's classic "Devil May Care" is on the flip. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Azna De L'AderZabaya ... LP
Mississippi/Sahel Sounds, Late 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
A real freakout of a record – played by a band who must have been one of the headiest acts in Niger during the 70s! That nation's not nearly as well-known for psychedelic acts as some of the other African scenes of the time – but Azna De L'Adner can easily stand with the best of them – and maybe have even more intense electric guitar workouts than the rest – with lots of long, hypnotic solos that are completely sublime! In fact, the vocals sometimes seem like a second feature to the record – peppered in with staccato force alongside the instrumental riffs, which get plenty of support from a beautifully brooding bassist! The group hardly recorded much at the time, and this set brings together tracks pulled from a television station tape archive – with titles that include "Zabaya", "Zalouma", "Angola", "Yamanina", "Arne", "Gandari", and "Samedi Soir".

Deltron 3030Live ... LP
Bulk, 2017. New Copy ... $25.99 28.98
A solid live album by Deltron 3030 with a crazy diverse guest list, and a large live band to flesh it all out, dubbed appropriately enough as The 3030 Orchestra! A rare treat, one of the classic all star hip hop projects, built on blueprint hip hop reared, though uber-distinctive rhymes and turntablism, brought to the stage in a big way, with strings, horns, and guests including Zack De La Rocha, Mike Patton, Jamie Cullum, Emily Wells, and Aaron Bruno. Titles includes "3030", "Positive Contact", "The Return", "City Rising From The Ashes", "Nobody Can", "Mastermind", "Virus", "Do You Remember", "My Only Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Eddy DetermeyerRhythm Is Our Business – Jimmie Lunceford & The Harlem Express ... Book
University Of Michigan, 2006. New Copy ... $4.99 26.95
A great look at the legendary Jimmie Lunceford – head of one of the hippest, swingingest bands of the 30s – an ensemble that opened the door for so many other musicians and later generations – but never fully got the attention it deserved! This book does more than correct that – by shining a very strong spotlight on the music of Lunceford – digging deep into the life of the band, both on the road and off – as Jimmie continued to express himself in new and unusual ways, and find the best young talent to help him realize his vision! There's some nicely personal moments alongside the history, but never in a way that reduces the book to sheer anecdotes – and the volume is 317 pages, softcover, with some black and white images, and a huge discography at the end!

Miguel De DeusBlack Soul Brothers ... CD
Lion, New Copy ... About December 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

Devil's KitchenDevil's Kitchen ... LP
Lysergic Sound, Late 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
The first ever vinyl release of vintage late 60s sounds from Devil's Kitchen – a solid album's worth bluesy psychedelic grooves! Several of the tracks are live at the fabled Family Dog Ballroom in San Francisco – where the group served as the house band – plus studio recordings also in San Francisco – all of it from 1968 to 1969! Includes "City", "Farm Bust Blues", "Earthfields", (You've Got Your) Head On Right", "Dust My Blues", "Cookin", "Mellow Pot Blues" and "Mourning Glory". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Manu DibangoSoul Makossa ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+ ... $24.99
An incredible record – even if it was a worldwide hit! Before this one came out, Manu was a funky sax player grooving away in Cameroun, cutting tight but obscure soulful sides. In 1972, though, he exploded with the track "Soul Makossa" – a choppy hard-riffing number that blew up on dancefloors instantly, thanks to a strong cultural colonial pipeline already laid down by the French. The track had this amazing choppy beat that was instantly copied by loads of folks – as was the "Soul Makossa" tune, which due to some sort of copyright loophole, was covered by just about as many groups in the 70s as "Der Komissar" was in the 80s! (This is also why the album has a banner on the top that says "The Original"!) The rest of the album was recorded to follow up on the strength of that single – and believe it or not, it's actually even better, as the band is completely tight, very funky, and playing with that weird mix of Afro rhythms and electric funk that was being laid down in Paris at the time (and in fact, French jazzer Georges Arvanitas actually plays on the album!) Manu's tone is incredible, and the record's a must-have in the bin of any fan of 70s Afro Funk! Cuts include "New Bell", "Hibiscus", "Lily", and "O Boso". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ DirectionsDirections (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Brunswick (Japan), 1975. Used ... $14.99
One of the rarest soul records on Brunswick! This one was cut during the mid 70s – when the label was really having some rough times financially, but also was cutting some of its most groundbreaking soul work. The Directions are a tight harmony quintet – equipped, it appears, with their own band (The Directions Band) who give the group a nice rough soul sound. The vocal cuts on the record have sort of a Philly harmony style – with many uptempo numbers that are sort of a rougher version of work by Blue Magic or The Spinners. The instrumental tracks are smooth funk – with lots of tight keyboard work over heavy riffing and vamping, mostly in an uptempo vein. Titles include "Too Many Secrets", "Soup Line", "I Want To Be Your Special Man", "If You Ever", "We Need Love", and "I Love You So". CD

DJ HarrisonHazyMoods ... LP
Stones Throw, 2017. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
An appropriately titled set from DJ Harrison – and an of the finer hip hop instrumentals sets on Stones Throw in a little while! Harrison utilizes his DJ skills on this one, his Stones Throw debut, but he's also a multi-instrumentalist and member of Richmond, VA's Butcher Brown Band – who won us over via a boundary-busting way of melding gritty jazz funk and fusion into an all purpose vibe of their own. It's really cool hear one them working in a solo beathead guise, similarly inspired by a lot of freewheeling sounds and styles, but Harrison really reigns in all in tightly for an always headnodding experience. Includes "Pianojazz", "Partylife", "ClavCrunch", "JazzHaze", "Bedsong", "Drunk808", "GameRestart", "Rollskate", "SpaceModulator" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Recent live material from Djavan – caught with a smallish rock-oriented band, in front of a very lively crowd. The overall feel is quite strong – and Djavan's guitar and soulful voice always manage to please, whatever the setting. There's 2 discs in the set – and titles include "Boa Noite", "Lilas", "Sina", "A Carta", "Esquinas", "Oceano", "Serrado", "Azul", "Samurai", "Meu Bem Querer", and "Amar E Tudo". CD

✨✧ DNATaste Of DNA EP ... 12-inch
American Clave/Superior Viaduct, 1981. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $13.99
An amazing record from one of the most legendary forces in the New York No Wave scene at the start of the 80s! At the time, DNA was one of the most uproarious acts in that increasingly legendary NYC scene – a group that featured Arto Lindsay's scratchy guitar and haggard banshee wail of a lead vocal presence, primitive Bowery funk keyboards by Robin Krutchfield, and thumping, metronomic bass and drums by Tim Wright and Ikue Mori. The band's songs rarely marched past the 2 1/2 minute mark or so – getting in-and-out for a quick catharsis – which means that this record is relatively short, but no less powerful – one of the boldest statements from that scene at the time – an extraordinarily concise musical vision that delivers more music in that short span that most sprawling double LPs! Titles include "New Fast", "5:30", "Blonde Red Head", "32123", "New New", and "Lying On The Sofa". 12-inch, Vinyl record

Bill DoggettHonky Tonk Popcorn ... LP
King, 1969. Near Mint- (reissue)... $8.99
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".

BGP (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $9.99
Not the original "Honky Tonk" that first drove organist Bill Doggett to fame at the end of the 50s – but instead, a whole new version of the groove – recorded here with the James Brown Band at the end of the 60s, complete with funky drums that make both sides of the single into top-shelf instrumentals with a fierce popcorn groove! "Honky Tonk Popcorn" features lots of fuzzy guitar taking a solo – while the other cut has more organ in the lead! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bob DylanReal Royal Albert Hall 1966 Concert ... CD
Legacy, 1966. Used ... $9.99
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.

Bob DylanTempest ... LP
Columbia, 2012. Near Mint- 2LP ... $16.99
Bob Dylan and his great band whip up a moody, yet darkly humorous Tempest – and while the overall greatness of his records came down just notch or two after Love And Theft – this one goes the other way and comes pretty damn close to his late-era peaks! Lyrically, it's definitely better than the past couple records – with verse after verse of poetic storytelling – which is carried all the more effectively by his weathered rasp. Sound-wise, Dylan is as indebted as ever to pre-rock rhythm & blues, but there's some nice fuzzy electrified arrangements, too – and it's all played by a stellar band that's been with him for a long time now, one perfectly-suited for the style: guitarists Charlie Sexton & Stu Kimball, BR5-49 fiddler and steel guitarist Donnie Herron, bassist Tony Garnier, drummer George Receli, and a most noteworthy guest in Los Lobos' David Hidalgo on accordion. Includes "Duquesne Whistle", "Soon After Midnight", "Narrow Way", "Long And Wasted Years", "Pay In Blood", "Scarlet Town", "Early Roman Kings", "Tin Angel", "Tempest" and "Roll On John". LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram vinyl, still in the shrink with hype sticker. Missing the bonus CD.)
