SonicsPsycho-Sonic ... CD
Big Beat (UK), 1964/1965. New Copy ... $11.99
Lester Bangs was right! There's just no overstating how important the sludgy, primordial ooze rock of the Sonics was to the future of rock. But if you're like us, you don't really care about the academic meaning of the arrival of the mighty, appropriately named Sonics, and you just want a good hard arse whompin' – and all 29 tracks on this singles collection do the job! It's pretty amazing what a banshee scream, an extra fuzzy guitar sound, atonal sound blasts and a vaguely r&b based approach accomplished in the mid 60s when practiced by the right madmen! Psycho-Sonic collects a ton of singles the boys cut for Etiquette Records, with extensive notes and great photos. If you're not familiar, one listen will prolly have you taking your White Stripes CDs to Disc-Go-Round. Includes "The Witch" (both the studio and a live version), "Boss Hoss", "Psycho", "Strychnine", "Cinderella", "Dirty Robber", "Keep A Knockin'", "Jenny Jenny", "Do You Love Me", "Walking The Dog", "It's Alright", "Since I Fell For You" and more. Essential!!! CD

VariousSweet Taste Of Sin – Sensual Sampler-Ready Soul For B-Boys, B-Girls, & Soul Heads ... CD
BGP (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Sweet and smooth 70s soul – hand-picked with a freshness that should appeal to folks who found these sounds through the hip hop that these grooves laid the sonic groundwork for. The tracks on here aren't as beat or break-heavy as some of the material on other sample-driven collections – but that's fine with us, as the tracks move into a sophisticated soul range that's always a pleasure to hear, bringing together the kind of well-produced 70s tracks we love! Titles include "Sweet Taste Of Sin" by Dennis Coffey, "I'll See You In Hell First" by Phillip Mitchell, "Do It To Me Now" by Fatback, "Don't Risk Your Happiness On Foolishness" by Fantastic Four, "Killing Time" by Natural Essence, "Your Love Is My Desire" by Eramus Hall, "Baby Get Down" by Eddie McLoyd, "Set It Out" by The Detroit Emeralds, "Love Starved" by Shirley Brown, "I'm Gonna Have To Tell Her" by Isaac Hayes, "If I Had The Power" by Johnny Guitar Watson, and "I Got To Have Your Love Now" by Caesar Frazier.

✨✧ VariousFly Girls – B-Boys Beware – Revenge Of The Super Female Rappers ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s/1980s/1990s. Used 2CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic tribute to the Fly Girls of hip hop – a filler free collection of some of the funkiest female fronted singles of the 80s – included a few genesis cuts from the 70s and a couple of important 90s numbers – blueprint rap from JJ Fad, Sweet Tee, MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, Bahamadia, Sparky D, Dimples D, Roxanne Shante and more! The set is heavy with classic material from NYC, naturally – as that's where hip hop was born – Soul Jazz does a fine job of selecting important cuts from other scenes, stretching back to the 70s for influential tracks by Camille Yarborough and Sarah Webster Fabio, and into the 90s for modern classics by Bahamadia and Missy Elliot. No label is more reverent to the classics they round up for killer compilations than Soul Jazz – and this is a great one – with rare photos and notes on each track. CD 1 includes "You're Goin Down" by JJ Fad, "Pump Up The Funk" by Princess MC, "Vicious Rap" by Tanya Winley, "I Got Da Feelin" by Sweet Tee, "Ego Trippin" by Nicki Giovanni, "Cha Cha Cha" by MC Lyte, "Paper Thin" by Bahamadia and more. CD 2 includes "I Can't Stop" by Sparky D, "Ladies First" by Queen Latifah, "To The Beat Y'all" by Lady B, "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly) by Missy Elliot, "Sucker DJs" by Dimples D, "Give It A Rest" by She Rockers, "Glimpses" by Sarah Webster Fabio, "Bite This" by Roxanne Shante and more. 20 tracks on 2CDs.

✨✧ VariousHappy Lovin' Time – Sunshine Pop From The Garpax Vaults ... CD
Big Beat (UK), Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great underground work from the LA scene of the 60s – material that was really cut in the shadows of bigger acts like the Beach Boys or Byrds – but still handled by top-shelf superproducer Gary S Paxton! The work here is a great discovery – lots of material that's never seen the light of day before, cut at Gary's studio in the weeks between bigger hits – and other tracks are from very rare 45s that really show the farther reaches of the Sunshine Pop styles of the period – the kind of cool work that we always love tracking down on indie labels, and which continue to evolve our understanding of the Cali scene after all these years! As usual with Ace, the overall package is stunning – really great notes, excellent detail, and a motherlode of music – with titles that include "Bad Sign" by The Jaybees, "Games" by The Bogart Cult, "Make Up Your Mine" by Augie Moreno, "Christina In My Dreams" by Curt Boettcher, "Thinking Animal" by The New Wing, "Dandelion Wine" by The Whatt Four, "Savin" by The Lords, "Nowhere To Go" by The Four Freshmen, "The Highly Successful Young Rupert White" by The Privilege, "Who Do You Think You Are" by The Jaybees, "Is It Love" by Willie & The Walkers, and "Happy Lovin Time" by The Black Box.

Soul & blues performances from Hoss Allen's 1966 Rhythm & Blues Revue program which ran on US television and is purported to be the first syndicated series ever revolving around black singers in the US!

✨✧ VariousLet The Boogie Woogie Rock & Roll – 25 Boogies, Jivers, & Jumpers Drawn From The Atlantic, Atco, & East West Vaults ... CD
Atlantic/Ace (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A searing collection of 50s R&B – served up by one of the labels that was the best in the business – the then-young Atlantic Records, who helped define a whole generation with records like this! Yet the set isn't just the hits from Atlantic, as the collection's got loads of lesser-known gems from the time too – with a balance that's probably more in favor of obscure Atlantic tracks, which are then mixed in with a few better-known cuts – all for a non-stop R&B party that's brimming over with raw soul and plenty of jazzy jumpers! The package features 25 tracks in all – and a superb set list that includes the titles "Big Foot May" by Hal Paige & His Blues Boys, "Alarm Clock Boogie" by Odelle Turner, "Wine O Wine" by Willis Gatortail Jackson, "Ee Til Ya Dee" by The Tilters, "Big Mamou Daddy" by Carmen Taylor, "Uh Huh" by George Jackson, "Got The Water Boiling" by The Regals, "Miss Rip Van Winkle" by The Tibbs bRothers, "Hey Memphis" by Lavern Baker, "Rhumboogie Jive" by Frank Floorshow Culley, "My Beat Is 125th Street" by Eunice Davis, and "Bip Bop Bip" by Pretty Boy.

✨✧ Serge GainsbourgIntegrale 20th Anniversary (limited edition 20CD box set plus48-page book) ... CD
Universal (France), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 20CD ... Out Of Stock
An amazing collection of work from Serge Gainsbourg – a set that definitely lives up to the "integrale" promise in the title, as it includes every single album he ever recorded, plus loads more singles and rare bits too – all packaged in a really lavish set! Even if you've got an album or two by Serge at home – or even more than that – there's plenty here to love, as the set's overflowing with goodness – material that runs from his early work in a mixture of jazz and Latin, to his playful 60s pop, to the kind of sexy, slinky, funky sounds he's become legendary for as the 70s moved in! The album features 16 CDs of the classic original albums – nearly all of which include bonus tracks – a CD of singles & duets (1975 to 1986), a CD of television and radio recordings (1957 to 1974), a CD of songs for films, and a CD of instrumental film music – plus large hardcover-style book, with 48 pages of notes and images to hold the whole thing together!

The 4 addition CD adds dozens of far reaching, Serge greatness – and the whole thing includes 271 tracks in all! Even includes exclusive tracks – such as "Parce Que", "Les Play Boys", and "J'Entends Siffler Le Train". CD

✨✧ VariousFunky Kingston – Reggae Dancefloor Grooves 1968 to 1974 ... CD
Trojan (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet funky, funky reggae from the deep vaults of Trojan! It's a non-stop jam with 20 hot numbers so get ready for the get down – whether it's smokin' originals like Toots & the Maytals "Funky Kingston" or "Funky, Funky", poppin' remakes like the reggae take on Kool & the Gang's "Funky Stuff" by The Chosen Few, the Meters' "Look A Py Py" by Lloyd Charmers & the Hippy Boys or Jean Knight's "Mr Big Stuff" by Tomorrow's Children, plus numbers like Lee Perry's "Jungle Lion" that integrates a fat Memphis horn line courtesy Al Green, this set grooves like nobody's business.

✨✧ Beastie BoysPaul's Boutique (20th Anniversary edition) ... CD
Capitol, 1989. Used ... $7.99
The Beasties' masterpiece – and one of the original nightmares for sampling opponents everywhere – the cut & paste hip hop classic Paul's Boutique! The Dust Brothers unapologetic way of weaving very famous samples with the deepest soul, funk and film score obscurities would steal the show if not for the infectious, boisterous rhymes of the Beastie Boys – they couldn't possibly have cared less about alienating the massive frat boy fan base built with License To Ill, and it's a joy to behold. It's one of those mindblowing pop transformations on par with the Beatles (who the Beasties and Dust Brothers were so brazen to sample several times on this album) and the Beach Boys on the pop maturation scale from earlier hits to later artistry – even if the wild lyrics and deft back & forth rhymes by the Beasties are the antithesis of maturity. From classic rock dinosaurs to soul and disco classics, from the Jaws score to "Dueling Banjos", it all finds it's way into the beatcraft – and both mainstream pop and underground hip hop are better now because of this record. Tracks include "Hey Ladies", "Shake Your Rump", "High Plains Drifter", "Shadrach", "Johnny Ryall", "Eggman", "Car Thief", "What Comes Around", the "B-Boy Bouillabaisse" suite and more. CD
(Anniversary edition features remastering overseen by the band – and includes a free digital download featuring a track-by-track commentary by the Beasties!)

✨✧ Eyedea & AbilitiesE&A ... CD
Rhymesayers, 2004. Used ... $2.99
E&A return with a new full length with a few dizzyingly strong cuts – and a slew of others that aren't quite so hot, but still register. DJ Abilities lays down some pretty rocking beats and Eyedea's flow is simply astounding on the best cuts – particularly the single "Now" . One of these days the boys will make a full length as tight as that track. "Reintroducing", "Kept", "Now", "Exausted Love", "Star Destroyer" "Get Along", "Two Men And A Lady", "Act Right", "Glass" and more. CD

VariousGirls With Guitars – All-Girl Bands, Axe-Backed Babes, & The Like ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Girls with guitars – a very dangerous combination, and one that's served up nicely by this CD! The package brings together obscure girl rock tracks from the 60s – most of them in a rough garagey mode that stands as a very nice counterpoint to the sweeter girl group sound that's usually associated with the period. The tracks on the set are from a variety of indie labels, and include loads of work by groups we'd never heard of before, but who really sound great – most likely languished in obscurity due to the fact that their sound was years ahead of its time. The set includes great notes, and 24 tracks that include "Rock City" by Kathy Lynn & The Playboys, "My Baby" by the Girls, "I'd Rather Fight Than Switch" by The Tomboys, "Get Away From Me" by The Angels, "Only Seventeen" by The Beatle-ettes, "Do The Dog" by Sugar & The Spices, "They Are The Lonely" by Pat Powdrill & The Powerdrills, "Heart" by The 2 of Clubs, "Hully Gully Guitar" by The Percells, "Skinny Vinnie" by Goldie & The Gingerbreads, and "Boy What'll You Do Then" by Denise & Company.

✨✧ Chesapeake Jukebox BandChesapeake Jukebox Band ... CD
Greene Bottle/Rev-Ola (UK), 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A glorious relic of early 70s studio pop – and a record that's awash in unapologetic references to The Beatles and The Beach Boys! Chesapeake Jukebox Band were a short-lived collaboration between singer-songwriters Steve Sawyer and Freddie McFinn, who are working here with genius producer Ron Frangipone in the best compressed style of the legendary Record Plant studios. There's lessons here learned clearly from Brian Wilson, Phil Spector, George Martin, and some of the hipsters on the late 60s Warner scene – but an overall approach that's a bit more personal in the lyrics – which makes for a great combination with the loftier production of the album. At one level, there's also a spaciousness here that reminds us a bit of later work from the UK pop scene – but again, the whole thing's a bit more down to earth, in a way that we really like. Titles include "Sad Nite In Boston", "This Time", "Jennifer", "Love", "Until We Meet Again", "Daisies For The 8th Of May", "Fizbee's Tavern", and "The Door's Unlatched". CD also features 3 bonus tracks – "Don't Howdy Doody On Me", "Crime Of The Century", and "Don't Cry Your Eyes Out". CD

✨✧ Kenny DorhamBlues In Bebop ... CD
Savoy, Late 40s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the earliest recorded work from trumpeter Kenny Dorham – presented here in an overstuffed set that brings together most of his appearances on the Savoy label! The core standout tunes here are 10 numbers recorded in 1946 by The Bebop Boys – a combo that featured Dorham, Sonny Stitt, and Bud Powell coming together on tight, short, very upbeat bop material that ranked with some of the best early 78s of the genre. Titles by this group include "Seven Up", "Bebop In Pastel", "Serenade To A Square", "Fools Fancy", and "Bombay". Other material on the CD includes a solo by Kenny on "The Jitney Man" by Billy Eckstine, plus 3 tracks with the Milt Jackson Sextet from 1949 – including "Conglomeration", "Bruz", and "Roll Em Bags". Kenny also plays on three 1949 recordings with Charlie Parker – "Barbados", "Scrapple From The Apple", and "Bebop" – as well as four 1956 numbers with Cecil Payne – including "Grooving High", "Man Of Moods", and "Saucer Eyes".

✨✧ MonkeesPisces Aquarius Capricorn & Jones Ltd (2CD expanded edition) ... CD
Rhino, 1967. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
The Monkees in their groovy, giddy prime – and a nice little album that leaves the silliness of the TV show aside for a catchy and credible batch of late 60s group pop – with a nice mix LA studiocraft and touches of psych tinged country rock for which they still don't get enough credit! The main album is perhaps best known for the big hit "Pleasant Valley Sunday" – but the rest of the tracks have the boys continuing to take on the style of post Rubber Soul acoustic Beatles, plus some much more adventurous bits of early psychedelic pop! Album tracks include "Salesman", "She Hangs Out", "The Door Into Summer", "Love Is Only Sleeping", Nilsson's "Cuddly Toy", "Hard To Believe", "What Am I Doing Hanging 'Round", "Daily Nightly", "Don't Call On Me" and "Star Collector". Each CD includes 7 bonus tracks Disc 1 (stereo) includes ""Goin' Town" (stereo mix), "Riu Chiu" (TV version) and more. Disc 2 (mono) includes "Special Announcement", "Cuddly Toy" (alternate mix), "The Door Into Summer" (alternate mix) and more. CD

Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great entry in this ultra-cool series – served up in an assortment of really rare, really raw, really raunchy tracks from the early days of rock and roll! The set features different themes for each of the four sides of the record – "Life's A Scream", songs with screaming; jungle-themed tunes in "Welcome To The Jungle"; fantastic femmes in "Wild & Wilder Boppin Girls", and a range of weird stuff in "Crazy Guys, Food, Prison, & A Guide To The Female Persuasion". Titles include "Crazy Talk" by The Loafers, "Ooba Gooba" by The Charts, "Jungle Fever" by The Playboys, "Red Hots & Chili Mac" by The Moroccos, "You Crack Me Up" by Charlie Baker, "Scream" by Ralph Nielsen & The Chancellors, "Bunker Hill" by Little Red Riding Hood & The Wolf, "I Don't Like It Like That (parts 1 & 2)" by The Bobbettes, and "Flipsville" by Stormy Gayle.

✨✧ Eugene McDanielsHeadless Heroes Of The Apocalypse ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A monster album that's gone on to influence a generation – but which was barely recognized at the time! Singer Eugene McDaniels had scored big with some pop hits in the 60s under the name Gene McDaniels – but here, he steps out in a righteous batch of offbeat funk tunes – filled with politics, offbeat rhythms, and some very weird instrumentation. The whole thing's awash in moody, jazzy changes – of the style that showed up often in samples by Tribe Called Quest, Beastie Boys, and other artists who drew keen inspiration from this record. Titles include the massive "Jagger the Dagger" – plus "The Lord Is Back", "Lovin Man", "Headless Heroes", "Freedom Death Dance", and "Supermarket Blues". CD
