Natalie ColeThankful/I Love You So/Don't Look Back ... CD
Capitol/BGO (UK), 1977/1979/1980. New Copy 2 CDs ... $9.99
Classic early work from Natalie Cole – packaged here in a sweet 2CD set! First up is the album Thankful – the third record in a tremendous early creative and commerical winning streak for Natalie! Thankful has her sweet, soulful voice out from of prodcution by Chuck Jackson and Marvin Yancy of the Independents, and they give her a nice jazzy sound that made the record one of her best of the 70s. Richard Evans and Gene Barge arranged, which probably had something to do with that, too – but Natalie truly deserves most of the credit of the strength of this set. It includes the standout groovers "La Costa" and"Annie Mae", but the whole record is really sweet – with "Lovers", "Our Love", "Be Thankful", "Just Can't Stay Away" and "Keeping A Light". I Love You So is a Capitol killer from Natalie Cole – a really great record from the time when she really seemed to be starting out her career with a bang! As with other gems on Capitol, the record features some great production work from Marvin Yancy and Chuck Jackson, getting a bit of help here from Gene Barge too – all wrapped up with a strong, sophisticated sound that shows plenty of Chi-soul touches in the music – a great approach for Natalie's maturing vocals. The sound is wonderfully balanced, and really stays away from easy hit modes – leaving the lady in a space that's all her own, on tracks that include "The Winner", "I Love You So", "Oh Daddy", "Sorry", "Stand By", and "Who Will Carry On". Don't Look Back is an overlooked gem from Natalie Cole – a set that still has her working strongly with songwriter Marvin Yancy, who really helped her find her sound and style during the early years of her career! Natalie actually helped with writing a fair bit on the record herself – sometimes with Yancy, sometimes alone – and the result is a surprisingly personal batch of tunes that really show a deepening of spirit in the singer, especially in the mellower moments. Gene Barge handles the arrangements – still bringing a bit of Chicago soul roots to the record – that mix of deep and sophisticated modes that always brought out the best in Natalie. Titles include "Don't Look Back", "I'm Getting In To You", "Paradise", "Hold ON", "Danger UP A head", and "Someone That I Used To Love". CD

CreationOur Music Is Red With Purple Flashes ... CD
Demon (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $8.99
One of the great lost groups of the UK scene of the 60s – not lost to UK audiences, or to hipsters over the generations – but still an act that never made the impact on these shores that they should! The Creation are step in step right up there with early material by The Who or Small Faces – and share a similar groundbreaking re-fusion of American roots into a new London groove – all with searing guitars, clever wordplay, and a cutting-edge spirit that may well have kept them off our charts – but which makes them so great to discover all these many years later. You might have caught a few of their songs over the years – thanks to soundtrack placement from directors like Wes Anderson, or covers by many of their bigger fans – but this overstuffed 24 track set shows the full picture of the group's genius – on titles that include "Making Time", "Painter Man", "Biff Bang Pow", "Nightmares", "If I Stay Too Long", "I Am The Walker", "Can I Join Your Band"," How Does It Feel To Feel", "The Girls Are Naked", "Uncle Bert", "Try & Stop Me", and "Through My Eyes".

Curtis FullerImagination ... CD
Savoy, Late 50s. Used ... $11.99
One of the coolest albums that Curtis Fuller ever recorded for Savoy – a sharp-edged set of modern jazz that really matches the abstract painting on its cover! Fuller's material from this point is always pretty darn great, but this album seems to go ever farther than usual – coming across with a strong conception overall, and not just a bunch of hardbop jamming – a careful presentation of the material that almost places the record in the territory of some of the Yusef Lateef Savoy work of the time – although perhaps not as exotic. Benny Golson is in the group on tenor, and you can definitely hear some of his influence in the music – and other players include Thad Jones on trumpet, McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Dave Bailey on drums. Titles include "Kachin", "Bang Bang", "Blues De Funk", and "Lido Road". CD

Arthur Russell & OthersSleeping Bag Sessions ... LP
Sleeping Bag, 1980s. New Copy 2LP ... $15.99 25.98
Dancefloor jams, post disco soul, early NYC hip hop beats and straight up amazing 80s NYC progressive club genius from Arthur Russell – a compilation of great tracks he performed on, authored, remixed, edited or produced for Sleeping Bag in the early-to-mid 80s! Includes underground classics from Bonzo Goes To Washington, Dinosaur L, Felix, Indian Ocean and more – all touched in some way by Arthur Russell, with artists in the sessions from Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads and Bootsy Collins in Bonzo, to a collaboration with producer Nicky Siano in the tracks by Felix, and players from the earlier Loose Joints disco sessions. Incredibly important stuff on one hand, and appealingly funky 80s grooves on a more superficial level – and great stuff either way you slice it. Titles include "5 Minutes (B-B-B mix)" by Bonzo Goes To Washington, "Tiger Stripes" and "You Can't Hold Me Down" (extended mixes) by Felix, "Chill Pill (Underwater mix)" by Sounds Of JHS 126 Brooklyn, "School Bell/Tree House" by Indian Ocean, "Go Bang! (Walter Gibbons mix)" by Dinosaur L and more. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousDisco 2 – A Further Fine Selection Of Independent Disco, Modern Soul, & Boogie 1976 to 1980 – Part 1 (with download) ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99 29.99
Not disco hits or the overplayed classics you may know from too many weddings – but a wonderfully deep selection of underground cuts that shows that there's still plenty of rare gems to discover from the 70s club scene! The set's put together by the man who wrote the book on rare disco mixes (literally!) – and he's got a great ear for the kinds of cuts that still sound incredibly fresh all these many years later – work that may well have been so ahead of its time, it's taken the passage of decades to finally give it its due! Most of these tracks strip down to the best elements of underground disco – the kinds of basslines, rhythm parts, and funky instrumentation that still leaves us breathless over the years – and as usual, Soul Jazz have done a bang-up job with the whole package too. Titles on this part 1 of the vinyl version include "Pay The Price" by Stevo, "Groove On Down" by Dunn Pearson Jr, "Micro Wave Boogie" by Skip Jackson & The Natural Experience, "Come Inside" by Shades Of Love, "Rock A Freak" by Needa, "Disco Strut" by Creme De Coco", and "What Can I Do To Make You Dance" by Anita Maldondo.

VariousSound Of The Grapevine Vol 2 – 24 Modern Soul Dancers ... CD
Grapevine (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $7.99 19.99
Sublime soul from the genius compilers at Grapevine Records – an assortment of southern and modern soul tunes that all move along at a fairly nice little clip – dancefloor oriented, but not in a disco or club sort of approach. The groove here is really wonderful – honest, heartfelt, and warm – a nice change from the more upbeat approach of Northern Soul compilations, and done with a richness that features loads of great bits from the Chicago scene on down to the deepest south. At 24 tracks in all, the collection's really overflowing with great music – a heck of a bang for your buck, with a huge amount of tracks we've never seen elsewhere! Titles include "Alone Again" by Ernest Baker, "It's You" by Sex, "You Don't Know" by Bettye Jean Plummer, "Good Old Days" by The Jones Brothers, "Yesterday Today & Tomorrow" by Johnny Moore, "Leaving (radio edit)" by Bobby Cutchins, "Long Hard Road" by Bobby Wayne, "Love Stormy Weather" by Melvin Brown & James Matthews, "Man Can't Be A Man" by Bill Coday, "Love Bandit" by Patti & The Lovelites, "I'll Let You Slide" by The Saints, "I Kept On Smilin" by Cal Brandon, and "Nice & Slow" by Norma & The Heartaches.

Soul Jazz/Studio One (UK), 1960s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99
Another chapter in the Studio One story, as told by the top notch selectors at Soul Jazz, and as with the earlier editions in their Studio One series, this one's another mighty batch of Jamaican rhythm and blues. Like so many other Coxsone Dodd productions, you can hear the foundations of many future generations of Jamaican music running through these titles, 17 jaunty ska numbers laced with jazz inflected solos laid down by Tommy McCook, Roland Alphonso, Jackie Mittoo and the Skatalites, or harmonized vocals courtesy the Ethiopians, Maytals and others. As you've come to expect, this is an ace package with excellent notes and archival photos, loaded down with classic performances and hard to get nuggets, too! With Jackie Mittoo's "El Bang Bang", Ken Boothe & Stranger Cole "Arte Bella", The Wailers "Put It On", The Skatalites "Addis Ababa" and "Exodus", Joe Higgs "I'm The Song My Enemies Sing", Delroy Wilson "I Want Justice", Tommy McCook "Sampson" and "Freedom Sounds", The Maytals "Marching On", Don Drummond "Don Cosmic", Andy & Joey "You're Wondering Now" and more!

✨✧ Equipe 84Io Ho In Mente Te ... LP
Vedette/Contempo (Italy), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Only the second album from this groovy Italian group of the 60s – but a set that already has them growing in leaps and bounds! The sound here is much trippier than before – lots of cool production touches that make the guitar and vocals especially echoey – and strong use of organ and superfuzz guitar to really give things a psychedelic undercurrent, even when the songs are pretty straightforward and tuneful overall! As before, the album features the group covering some Anglo hits in Italian, but really making them unique in the way they handle the material – on versions of "You Were On My Mind", "Bang Bang", "I Need Somebody Groovy", and "Funny How Love Can Be". Also features some great originals, too – including "Auschwitz", "Floating", and "Da Domani". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Music EnsembleMusic Ensemble ... CD
Roaratorio, Mid 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A brilliant portrait of the mid 70s NYC improvisation scene by the Music Ensemble – a collective featuring Billy Bang on violin, William Parker on bass, Roger Baird on drums, percussion and flute, Malik Baraka on trumpet and Daniel Carter tenor, alto, flute and percussion! The pieces generally start with a roomy, measured dynamic and grow in intensity, never really getting too intense, and showcasing the intuitive interplay with the players. As Chicago residents, we can really feel the genesis of the later sounds of this city's improv scene, but the style casts a pretty wide net of influence. Baird's archival tapes supplied the material for this CD, and the tracks includes 2 long pieces – the 31+ minute "Stance Dance (Courage)" recorded in April of 1974 at Kingsborough College in Brooklyn with bass by Herb Kahn, and the 18+ minute "Arithmetical Mystic" from a February 1975 date at NYC's Holy Name School Auditorium. The other pieces, "Echoes Wind Transpire" and "Radiatory Fineness", a from the February '75 date. CD

✨✧ AfriqueSoul Makossa ... LP
Mainstream, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A killer album of Afro Funk – with a very unusual origin! In the wake of Manu Dibango's big hit (and some kind of failure to register the copyright), many many versions of "Soul Makossa" were recorded and released, some good, some bad. This album is a good example of that situation – kind of a quickie project issued by Mainstream Records to cash in on the hit – but it's also an amazing bit of lost funk, and a record that's lasted for years in the hearts of beatheads! The group's a studio combo headed by Richard Fritz – and includes funky drummer Paul Humphrey, organist Charles Kynard, and guitarist David T Walker – all players we can trust to keep things groovy. The record does include a version of "Soul Makossa" that's pretty great – but even better is the breakbeat classic "House Of The Rising Funk", apparently the same version of the track that was issued on a 45 under the name The Chubukos. Other nice ones include "Kissing My Love", "Hot Mud", "Get It", "Hot Doggin", and "Let Me Do My Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

Dao BandonKon Kee Lang Kwai (Man Or Water Buffalo) – Essential Dao Brandon ... CD
EM/Paradise Bangkok (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
With a singer this obscure, you might take the word "essential" in the title a bit loosely – but the set is a stunning batch of work from this popular Thai vocalist of the 70s! Dao Bandon's voice is amazing right from the start, even if you can't understand the language (although there is a bit of translation on the package) – this kind of eerie, otherworldly sound that steps rhythmically over these exotic backings that are both instantly timeless, and also show some slight electric elements borrowed from the Southeast Asian wave of psych from the late 60s. Most tracks move at a relatively slow pace, but that only makes Bandon's vocals an even more prominent part of the mix – especially when he criss-crosses in these really complicated patterns – and the folks at Paradise Bankok did this set with EM, so it's a great one if you dig their other reissues too. Titles include "Bong Ja Bong", "Lam Plearn Jaroen Jai", "Sanya Na Nao", "Ya Sading", "Ya Ting King", "Nat Wan Kin Yaa Dong", and "Num Lam Nam Chi". CD

Ray BarrettoSenor 007 ... LP
United Artists, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of our favorite Ray Barretto albums of the 60s – a real gem from the pre-Latin Soul years! The album's a clear attempt to cash in on the cash in on the James Bond craze of the time – issued by United Artists, who were releasing the Bond films, but also had Ray under contract during the period too. But despite that simple gimmick, it's a great little set – with a quality level that goes way beyond Bond soundtracks, or the usual from Barretto at the time! The tracks are all hard and groovy, with an excellent jazz feel – and some killer arranging from Ray that's right up there with the work he did for his legendary Charanga Moderna album! You may recognize the song titles – but their versions here are superb, and the album's filled with many many wonderful moments that step out with mad rhythms and great jazzy touches. Titles include "Mister Kiss Kiss Bang Bang", "OO7", "Search For Vulcan", "Thunderball", and "Goldfinger". Nice "spy" shot of Ray on the cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album

CokeCoke ... LP
Sound Triangle, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Funky Latin breaks and very groovy grooves – the kind of record that you hear for only a second, and say "oh yeah, this is the stuff!" Coke were an obscure Florida combo who mixed together Latin, funk, and soul – served up in a crossover style that's halfway between the sound of the NuYorican generation and the heavier hitters of LA's Chicano funk scene! Instrumentation includes organ, guitar, and trumpets – and vocals are delivered in a brown eyed soul style that burns nicely with the heavier grooves of the group. But best of all is the drummer, who really kicks it large on the kit – and creates some really nice funky numbers on the set! Includes the break classic "Na Na", plus the tunes "Got To Touch Your Face", "Te Amo Mas", "Quiero Decirte", "Bang Bang", "Bun Bun Bun", "You Turn Me On", and "Que Seria De Mi". A really great album – with a totally unique sound! LP, Vinyl record album

Manu DibangoAfrican Woodoo ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 18.99
Some of the coolest work we've ever heard from the legendary Manu Dibango – sound library recordings done right around the same time as his "Soul Makossa" hit, and with an equally funky groove! The music often has Manu's sax in the lead, alongside larger orchestrations that have a soundtrack/sound library funk sort of approach – tight, but never slick – and a perfect foil for solos, especially considering that some of the music here was recorded in New York – with work from Cedar Walton on keyboards, Buster Williams on bass, and Tony Williams on drums! The whole thing's great – a whole new side of Dibango's genius, appearing here for the first time ever – and titles include "Lagos Go Slow", "Du Bush A Bush", "Walking To Waza". "Blowin' Western Mind", "Motapo", "Groovy Flute", "African Pop Session", "Coco In Central Park", "Aphrodite Shake", and "New Wood". CD

Take A Ride is extra notable for a prominent behind the scenes figure – the legendary Jam Master Jay – working here as a producer in a style that's far removed from the vibe he pioneered in Run-DMC's a decade + earlier! Includes "Lock Down", "The Loc Is On His Own", "I'ma Keep Bangin'", "Homicide", ":Love Boat", "Sherm Stick", "Day 1", "Can't Keep A Gee Down", "Penitentiary Bound", "They Got Me On Medication", "Funk 2 Da Head", "Take A Ride".

Limelight, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A killer little set from Les McCann – one of his greatest records of the 60s, thanks to a fair bit of Latin Soul influences! The album's got a groove that's much grittier than Les' other work – a solid, soulful emphasis on bottom rhythms – which are mostly in a boogaloo and shing-a-ling mode – clearly McCann's nod to the Spanish Harlem scene at the time! The backings here are a bit fuller than usual for Les too – and his trio with Leroy Vinnegar is augmented with lots of added percussion, plus vibes from Lynn Blessing, sax and flute from Plas Johnson, and trumpet from Lee Katzman. The whole thing's wonderful – a non-stop party that rivals similar boogaloo jazz sets of the time – and titles include "Fakeout", "Boo Go Loo", "Hey Leroy", "Bang Bang", "La Brea", and "Music To Watch Girls By".

A hip Finnish take on soul jazz – headed up by drummer Matti Oiling! The groove here is tight and very straightforward – almost an amped-up European groove based on American soul jazz of the 60s – similar to some of Charly Antolini's excellent work for Saba/MPS! Instrumentation includes some nice trumpet and sax passages – often tightly arranged, but in ways that work with the drums in a cool sort of soundtrack funk feel – usually leaving Matti plenty of room to open up on the kit. Titles do a good job of summing up the energy of the record – with cuts that include "Boom Bang Basch", "Soul Rock", "Chicken Nerve", "Road Runner's Waltz", and "Steam Train". CD

Black Rose is JD Souther's second record, and it's a thing a beauty – produced by Peter Asher and featuring a who's who Souther's famous friends and lot of the great California session musicians of the time, but it's really about the intimate songcraft and the warmth of Souther's voice.

Includes "Banging My Head Against The Moon", "If You Have Crying Eyes", "Your Turn Now", "Faithless Love", "Baby Come Home", "Silver Blue", "Midnight Prowl", "Doors Swing Open", "Black Rose" and more.

Teldec/Warner (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the coolest albums ever recorded by the lovely Caterina Valente – a really special session that features the vocalist in the company of a few other singers, all set to swinging jazz arrangements from the great Johnny Keating! The style is upbeat, groovy, and very different than some of Valente's previous pop records – almost a bridge between earlier American harmony groups with a male/female mix, and some of the more complicated modes showing up in Europe in the 60s – in work by Les Double Six and The Swingle Singers! The group seems to sing in an instrumental scatting mode, instead of using straight lyrics on most numbers – and Valente's vocals are mixed with those of Blanche Birdsong, Peter Cornehlsen, and Silvio Francesco – and Johnny Keating throwns in loads of cool instrumental elements throughout to really make things sound groovy – including some of those tightly syncopated rhythms he was using on his own records, which makes some of these cuts sound a lot more mod than you might expect. Titles include "Desafinado", "Stardust", "Midnight In Moscow", "Cheerio", "Cuando Calienta Et Sol", "Moon River", and "Baubles Bangles & Beads". CD

Wonderful sounds from that amazing time in American music – a period when it seemed that there were so many records being made, new sounds were always finding a way to get onto vinyl! This collection represents an excellent criss-crossing of modes – exotic styles finding their way into soul, jazz, blues, R&B, and even a little bit of rock – thanks to plenty of weird instrumental modes used to great effect in the studio, and some nicely heavy percussion too! There's no set genre on the collection, but the music is all nicely unified in a fantasy of the exotic – which makes for some plenty playful tracks throughout.

Nice one! This is a sparkling set of 14 groovers pulled from some of the odder albums on Atlantic Records. Although best known as a soul label, Atlantic also cut some pretty mean funky jazz material – especially during the late 60s/early 70s, when they were running the groovy Vortex and Embryo sub-labels. This set was put together by Russ Dewbury, and it features some great groovers that we almost never see on vinyl these days. Tracks include "Baby, I Don't Know Where" by Air, "Live Humble" by Yusef Lateef, "The Power Of A Smile" by Herb Geller, "Vibrafinger" by Gary Burton, "Jan Jan" by The Fabulous Counts, "New Bell" by Manu Dibango, "Shorty Rides Again" by Les McCann & Eddie Harris, and "Cherrystones" by Eugene McDaniels.

The American debut of an African group who recorded most of their work in France during the 70s. This set's a French one, but has been spruced up a bit at Sigma Sound, where it received a US mix from Tom Moulton – ostensibly to give it a bit more of a dancefloor groove. The tracks have a style that's kind of smoother Afro Funk – almost in the mode of Manu Dibango's work from 1976. Titles include "Black Soul Music", "Moog Melody", "Dakar Sound", "Mangous", "Africa Africa", and "Black Brothers". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner, split seams, and some wear.)

Includes the extended "Love Peace & Happiness" suite, plus the funky "If You Want Me To", and "Have A Little Faith", "Wake Up", and "Let's Do It". Disc two features a live set at the Fillmore East – with Chambers-y versions of tunes like "People Get Ready", "Everybody Needs Somebody", "I Can't Turn You Loose", "Bang Bang", and "You're So Fine".
