Arthur Russell & OthersSleeping Bag Sessions ... CD
Sleeping Bag, 1980s. Used ... $7.99
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. CD

✨✧ O'JaysLove Fever ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1985. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the last albums from the legendary Philly International run by the O'Jays – recorded in a style that clearly shows influences from the 80s modes of the time, but which also still lets the group sparkle nicely on trademark harmonies! Even though Love Fever starts out a bit clunky – with a few cuts that have those 80s drums that bang at the bottom a bit too much, and almost obscure the vocals– as the set moves on, the voices really dominate, and start to shine on a nice batch of lesser-known later numbers. Titles include "Can't Slow Down", "Dollar Bill", "All Eyes On Africa", "We're Still Together", "What A Woman", "Love Fever", "What Good Are These Arms Of Mine", and "I Wanna Be With You Tonight". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousHillbillies In Hell Vol 3 – Country Music's Tormented Testament 1952 to 1974 – The Final Chapter ... 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.

✨✧ VariousStudio One Ska ... LP
Soul Jazz/Studio One (UK), 1960s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
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!

✨✧ VariousRich Medina Presents Jump N Funk ... CD
BBE (UK), Mid 70s/Late 2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
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.

AfriqueSoul Makossa ... LP
Mainstream, 1973. Near Mint- (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

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+ ... $9.99
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".

The set was recorded in Chicago, and includes local studio talents like Bobby Christian and Johnny Frigo, as well as Schory himself. Titles include "Baia", "Holiday In A Hurry", "Duel On The Skins", and "Typee". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ T Bone WalkerGood Feelin' (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Polydor/Elemental (Spain), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A rare gem from T Bone Walker – one of the few hip sides he cut in Europe at the end of the 60s – and very different than his more traditional work! The set was put together by Robin Hemmingway – who also handled the hip Hal Singer record from the same time – and the players here include Bernard Estardy on organ, Michel Sardaby on piano, and Manu Dibango on saxophone – all of whom make for a groove that's far more than traditional blues. Sure, the record's plenty bluesy – but it's also got a funky groove on many numbers – really cooking along in a way that's even cooler than most funky American blues. And given that Walker's guitar style was a key influence on most funky guitar players in jazz, his own work here is a really great fit for the setting! Titles include "Vacation", "Long Lost Lover", "Woman You Must Be Crazy", "I Wonder Why", "Poontang", "Reconsider", "Sail On Little Girl", and "When I Grow Up". LP, Vinyl record album

Bang proves once again that he's one of the few jazz players who can make the violin work without being too flowery or too overindulgent – in a manner that almost makes you forget the instrument he's using, because you're so caught up in the waves of sound! The group features some prime NYC loft jazz players – including Frank Lowe, Wilbur Morris, Charles Tyler, David Murray, and Sunny Murray – and titles include "Conception", "Seeing Together", and "Outline No 12".

Ann-MargretAnn Margret – The Definitive Collection ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.98
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".

Amina BarakaAmina Baraka & The Red Microphone ... CD
ESP, 2017. New Copy ... $12.99
Amina Baraka's holding a megaphone on the cover, but she hardly needs it at all – given the righteous power of her voice on this album – still completely amazing after all these years! The album follows in the best tradition of work started by Amiri Baraka back in the 60s – a mixture of spoken knowledge and avant jazz, with backing by a group that includes Ras Moshe Burnett on tenor and flute, Rocco John Iacavone on curved soprano sax and piano, John Pietaro on drums and percussion, and Laurie Towers on bass. 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. Titles include "The Fascist", "Time Step", "The Spirit Of Billy BAng", "For Margaret Walker Alexander", and "Afro American Child". 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

Disc one features Love Peace & Happiness – a set that features a number of original tracks, played with a harder soul feel than some of their other records at the time. 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".

Chico Mann & Captain PlanetNight Visions ... CD
Bastard Jazz (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $12.99
One of the most tuneful albums we've ever heard from Chico Mann – and a set that moves into much more song-based territory than some of his earlier work! The style here is a unique hybrid of beats, breaks, and Latin – almost in a mode that could crack a larger global market, if the right forces were in place – with very catchy Spanish-language songs that are perfect for the dancefloor! There's echoes of more mainstream modes in the approach, but the overall presentation is as hip as you'd expect from Chico and Captain Planet – on titles that include "Can't Let Go", "Somos Candela", "Oye Bien", "Como Me Miras", "La Oscuridad", "Cuentos De Anoche", and a remake of Manu Dibango's "New Bell".

Africa Seven (UK), 1970s/2017. New Copy 2LP ... $24.99
The first installment in a series that we hope to hear from often in years to come – as it offers up new remixes of older African funk tracks from the 70s – but all in a way that crackles with the best contemporary energy of the London scene! Most of the material was issued in the original form by other album projects from the Africa Seven label – but the cuts here are completely changed up, and their original rhythms expanded in ways that really show a 21st Century level of complexity – and there's also a bit of added instrumentation too. The sound is excellent – almost a post-4Hero take on Afro Funk – and titles include "Soul Castle (Silkie edit over dub)" by Ekambi Brillant, "Jokenge (IG Culture edit)" by Afro National, "Zinabu (Moody Boyz edit refix)" by Bunzu Soundz, "Bgkouala Niklouala (Redpine & Solo edit over dub)" by Bozambo, "Les Cavaliers (Plaid edit over dub)" by Manu Dibango, "Rhythm On Rhythm (DJ Food chop-up)" by Sookie, "Nnom Mot (Ry9n & Knid edit over dub)" by Douglas Mbida, and "Nani Nani (Appelblim edit over dub)" by Sorry Bamba.

VariousTwelve Inch Eighties – You Spin Me Round (3CD set) ... CD
Crimson (UK), 1980s. New Copy 3CD ... $12.99
The 12" single really took off in the 80s – especially in the UK scene, where the format got lots of extra attention in the charts and record racks – and where producers used the moment to make all sorts of mini-symphonies in sound! Unlike previous 12" years, which might just see a track extended with a break or repetition, these 80s 12" singles often reworked the songs with new rhythms, added content, and other unusual elements – in ways that could often make a sometimes-snoozy pop track burst forth with a lot of new energy! This 30 track set serves up some of the best from that time – all at one very nice low price – with titles that include "I Can't Go For That (ext club mix)" by Hall & Oates, "Manic Money (ext rmx)" by The Bangles, "Doctor Doctor (long version)" by Thompson Twins, "Love Plus One (12" version)" by Haircut 100, "Come Back & Stay (12" mix)" by Paul Young, "Quiet Life (12" mix)" by Japan, "I Feel The Earth Move (club mix)" by Martika, "Never Gonna Give You Up (12" cake mix)" by Rick Astley, "I'm Not Scared (disco mix)" by Eighth Wonder, "You Spin Me Round (12" murder mix)" by Dead Or Alive, "Dinner With Gershwin (12" extended)" by Donna Summer, "My Camera Never Lies (12" mix)" by Bucks Fizz, "Safety Dance (12" version)" by Men Without Hats, and "99 Red Balloons (12" club mix)" by Nena.
