✨✧ VariousBang – The Bert Berns Story ... LP
Sony, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic tribute to the studio genius of the great Bert Berns – maybe one of the most rough-edged producers on the New York scene at the time – as you can probably guess from his image on the cover! The set's pretty strong on Berns' soul output, but also includes some of his key rock productions too – and as always with his music, there's a nice link between both styles – with rough edges on the soul tracks, and soulful currents on the rock numbers! Titles include "Tell Him" by The Exciters, "Piece Of My Heart" by Erma Franklin, "A Little Bit Of Soap" by The Jarmels, "I Want Candy" by The Strangeloves, "Are You Lonely For Me Baby" by Freddie Scott, "Hang On Sloop" by The McCoys, "Chick A Boom" by Van Morrison, "Mr Success" by Bobby Harris, "Am I Grooving You" by Freddie Scott, "Heart Be Still" by Lorraine Ellison, "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love" by Solomon Burke, "You May Be Holding My Baby" by The Pussycats, "Show Me Your Monkey" by Kenny Hamber, and "Baby Please Don't Go" by Them.

✨✧ 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 ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

VariousStudio One Ska ... LP
Soul Jazz/Studio One (UK), 1960s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99 29.99
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!

Strut, Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99 29.99
A wealth of stellar Walter Gibbons mixes of underground disco, club soul and funky dancefloor gems – 12" mixes, edits, remixes that are some of the coolest disco and post disco you'll ever need – as well as an incredible portrait of the artistry of Walter Gibbons, one the most pivotal figures in late 70s and early 80s DJ culture! It features funked up versions of club classics and comparable rarities, Walter Gibbons mixes of cuts by Gladys Knight, Arthur Russell, Betty Lavette, Jakki and more – 8 tracks on 2 LPs, most on the longer side for maximum club funk hypnosis. Compiled by Quinton Scott, the material is not continually mixed and it features avant club funk classics from rare 12"s on Salsoul, Pyramid, West End and other labels as well as a few mixes that weren't released on wax at the time. A beautifully put together tribute by a true legend – and another essential compilation from put together for Strut Records! Includes "Sun...Sun...Sun (Walter Gibbons Original 12" Edit)" by Jakki, "You Are My Love (12" Version)" by Sandy Mercer, "Doin' The Best That I Can (Walter Gibbons 12" Mix)" by Bettye Lavette, "I've Been Searching (Walter Gibbons 12" Mix)" by Arts & Crafts, "Go Bang (Walter Gibbons Unreleased Mix)" by Dinosaur L and more.

✨✧ Music EnsembleMusic Ensemble ... CD
Roaratorio, Mid 70s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily 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

Omni (Australia), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Heavenly voices, turning towards hell – in a host of rare country music tracks that deal with the devil and the world down under! The set's the third volume in this wonderful series, and may well be the deepest-digging so far – and stands as a demonstration that, if you're going to have the spirit of redemption in your music, you've also got to make room for damnation as well! Some of the artists here might be familiar, but there's also a fair bit of very rare tracks too (and you can trust us on that – as we're hillbilly hounds ourselves!) As before, there's some great track by track notes that illuminate the music – alongside titles that include "Satan's Child" by Anita Carter, "Six Rounds Of Love & Hate" by Autry Inman, "Devil's Slate" by Johnny Tyler, "Ten O'Clock Train" by Harold Lee, "I'm Going Down For The Third Time" by Eddie Snell & His Midwestern Aces, "Ain't No Grave Gonna Hold My Body Down" by Ralph Hart, "Suicide Blues" by Stringbean, "Bang Bang You're Dead" by Steve Bledsoe, "Graveyard Dance" by Ray Sanders, and "The Neon & The Rain" by Freddie Hart.

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

Leon HuffHere To Create Music ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1980. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of the most compelling later albums on Philly International – a killer mix of jazzy numbers that have a very different style than most of the other Philly work at the time! Even though Leon Huff had been banging around in soul music for about 15 years – most famously as half of the Philly soul superteam Gamble & Huff – this 1980 LP was his first effort as an artist, instead of producer. In Chicago, the big highlight is the jazzy stepping track "I Ain't Jivin, I'm Jammin" – which grooves along with a sweet two-step piano sound that's still quite popular on the dancefloor – but the record is filled with nice tracks including "Tight Money", which was done earlier by Reuben Wilson, the funky "Your Body Won't Move If You Can't Feel The Groove", the breezy instrumental "No Greater Love", "Tasty", "This One's For Us" and "Latin Spirit".

Love Childs Afro Cuban Blues BandOut Among 'Em ... LP
Roulette, 1975. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A sweet set of 70s Latin Disco – less Afro-Cuban than you might expect, but a great illustration of the way that older Latin modes had filtered down to more mainstream dancefloors at the time! There's definitely still some Latin elements in the mix – but the set's also got Michael Zager arranging and producing, and giving the whole thing more of a disco focus overall – in ways that criss cross nicely throughout the record. Titles include a sweet clubby cover of Joe Cuba's "Bang Bang", a remake of Sly Stone's "Life & Death In G&A", and the titles "Black Skin Blue Eyed Boys", "Once You Get Started", and "Get Dancin".

✨✧ Iggy PopNew Values ... CD
Arista, 1979. Used ... $5.99
One of the great earlier solo records from Iggy – capping off the 70s here with a bang! New Values finds Iggy a real peak point for edgy, yet accessible songwriting – a talent he no doubt honed in the preceding few years of working with David Bowie. The production is great here, too – with the rugged guitar and bugged out vocals you'd expect from Iggy, but with some cool little synthesizer touches here and there, that actually sound fresh to this day – as opposed to new wave-y. We value this one as highly as just about any Iggy Pop album. Includes "Tell Me A Story", "New Values", the classic "I'm Bored", "Five Foot One", "Angel", "The Endless Sea", "Don't Look Down", "African Man", "Billy Is A Runaway" and more. CD

Nick ToschesMe & The Devil (hardcover) ... Book
Little Brown, 2012. New Copy ... $4.99 26.99
Nick Tosches got his start writing about the music we love – and gave us great books on country music, R&B, and even Dean Martin – before he got the courage to pursue his first love of writing fiction, which he's been doing for more than a few years now. In Me & The Devil, Tosches writes about a New York writer named Nick – suddenly awoken to his deeper, darker desires – unraveling bit by bit as he's set off in previously unimaginable directions. The story's a bit unusual for Tosches, but the writing is as familiar as his other books – often hard-bitten, with a legacy that goes back to pulps, up through generations of outsiders like Burroughs, Bukowski, or Bangs – alongside whom Tosches can definitely be included. 387 pages, hardcover.

BBE (UK), Mid 70s/Late 2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99 31.99
One of the coolest projects we've heard from Rich Medina in years – a killer compilation that brings together older Afro Funk tracks from the 70s with a big amount of cuts from more contemporary years – all with a blend that pushes the spirit of the continent way out into the cosmos! Medina's always been one of the most forward-thinking artists in the underground – and you can definitely hear that quality in this set – as Rich effortlessly steps back and forth in space and time, to create a unified sound that bristles with electricity, while still reveling in all the key acoustic elements from the 70s. Titles include "For The People" by Aquil, "Bango Fields" by Kutiman, "For Real (2011 edition Atjazz rmx)" by Atjazz, Olodumare" by Wale Oyejide, "Bushman" by Asiko Afrobeat Ensemble, "Stalemate" by Fela & The Afrika 70, "Jungle Beat (Mutaba)" by Sir Victor Uwaifo & His Melody Maestroes, "Soul Makossa" by Original Nairobi Afro Band, "Why Can't We Live Together (Sao Benitez BV dub)" by River Oceaon, and "Na Oil" by Seun Kuti & Fela's Egypt 80.

Not the instrumental music from the second season of the Stranger Things series – but instead all of those very cool early 80s songs that are always playing in the background – tunes that have turned out to be almost as important to the show as the 70s music was to the Guardians Of The Galaxy films! But the set isn't just a collection of 80s rock, becuase it's also interspersed with cool elements from the show – bits of dialogue, and even Will singing a Clash song at one point – all alongside 80s classics that include "Should I Stay Or Should I Go" by The Clash, "Sunglasses At Night" by Corey Hart, "Hazy Shade Of Winter" by The Bangles, "Girls On Film" by Duran Duran, "Heroes" by Peter Gabriel, "Back To Nature" by Fad Gadget, "The Ghost In You" by Psychedelic Furs, "Nocturnal Me" by Echo & The Bunnymen, "Time After Time" by Cyndi Lauper, "Talking In Your Sleep" by The Romantics, "Whip It" by Devo, "Runaway" by Bon Jovi, "Atmosphere" by Joy Division, "Rock You Like A Hurricane" by The Scorpions, and "You Don't Mess Around With Jim" by Jim Croce.

Comet (France), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
This series just keeps on getting better and better! This is the third volume in the set that began with Racubah, continued with Oulelele, and which comes up this time with a fantastic array of rare African funk tunes from the 70s – rarer than any other set we've seen on other compilations of this sort, and sure to keep things interesting for folks who've already bought all their Fela and Manu Dibango albums. Nearly every cut on here is from the 70s – and most are from rare French sources of the type that you'd probably never find, even if you spent your Saturdays digging around flea markets in Paris (and believe us, we've tried that!) The grooves are incredible, and tracks include "Je Suis Un Sauvage" by Alfred Panou & The Art Ensemble Of Chicago, issued originally only on a Saravah 7" single; "A Coltrane", by the French saxophonist Richard Raux; "Bilongo", from Antillian percussionist Henri Guedon; "Woza Cindi", by South African jazz group Julian Bahula's Jazz Afrika; "Zombi", a French 70s club version of the Fela tune, recorded by Ephraim Nzeka – and the tracks "La Danse Des Grands Singes Nus" by Les Dums, "Make It Funky" by Roots Foundation, "Welcome New Warmth" by Michel Sardaby, and "Meci Bon Dieu" by Georges Edouard Nouel.

AfriqueSoul Makossa ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
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". CD

A fantastic collection of work from those years when singer Ann-Margret first popped up on the American market – young, fresh, and sexy – and willing to do whatever it took to make her music stand out from the pack! Ann-Margret's got a vocal range that's maybe deeper than most of her contemporaries – a lusty growl that makes you feel like she's singing from way down in her toes – with odd bluesy currents mixed with jazzier backings – all in a mode that has really blows away the sultry tones of previous singers like Peggy Lee or Julie London. This 30 track package is a very well-chosen array of tunes from the early RCA years – and includes lots of solo numbers, plus work with Elvis Presley and Al Hirt – on titles that include "Man's Favorite Sport", "Next Time", "Madrid/The Pleasure Seekers", "Mack The Knife", "My Baby Just Cares For Me", "Teach Me Tonight", "The Lady Loves Me", "You're The Boss", "Mr Wonderful", "That Old Black Magic", "Everything Makes Music When You're In Love", "Let Me Entertain You", "Take All The Kisses", "Something To Think About", and "Mister Kiss Kiss Bang Bang".

The approach is wonderful – and the record really feels like some lost underground relic of the 70s, the sort that the ESP label might have issued back in the day.

Lafayette Afro Rock BandSoul Makossa ... LP
As The Record Turns, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Amazing Afro Funk from one of the greatest groups of the genre – The Lafayette Afro Rock Band, a funky ensemble recording in Paris in the early 70s! The group were working in a hotbed of cross-cultural styles – and brought American funk rhythms firmly into play with African influences – creating grooves that were even heavier and harder than the work at the time by Fela Kuti, and which have stood for years as some of our favorite funk records! This album's one of their best – named after the title cut, their great take on Manu Dibango's "Soul Makossa" (done here even funkier than the original!), and featuring other great tracks, like "Voodounon", "Azeta", and "Hihache" – all of them filled with heavy bass, tight drums, and fuzzy guitar! Other cuts include "Oglenon", "MF Grayson", "Nicky" and "Right Foot". LP, Vinyl record album

Les McCannBucket O' Grease ... LP
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". LP, Vinyl record album
