Hugh MasekelaBoy's Doin' It ... LP
Casablanca, 1975. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A mid 70s effort from Hugh Maskela, recorded in Nigeria, an excellent melding of his jazz inflected pop sound with some deeper soulful grooves. The vibe here is showing both some funk and disco influences, but with trademark South African style melodies floating over top and a dedication to Fela, you know there's some afro beat creeping in too. 6 tracks in all: "The Boys Doin' It", "Mama", "Excuse Me Please", "Ashiko", "In The Jungle" and "A Person Is A Sometime Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

E Richard Sorenson & Six Boys In TroubleStreet & Gangland Rhythms – Beats & Improvisations By Six Boys In Trouble ... LP
Folkways, 1959. Near Mint- ... $36.99
A very unusual record – one that has the Folkways ethnographic team on the streets of New York, recording the songs and calls of "six boys in trouble" as they riff and sing on some rough and raw numbers! The record's an odd turn of the ethnographic ear to the American scene – and in terms of recording style, it's not that different than some of Folkways' percussion albums from Africa and Latin America in the post-war years – especially in the starkness of the recording quality. Most of the music seems to be improvised, and instruments include sticks and bongos – and other tracks feature the boys just singing and shouting, almost in a beat poetry way. Titles include "Bo Diddlie", "One Boy Playing Three Sets Of Bongo Drums With His Hand & One Drum Stick", "Gang Fight", "The Fox", "Money Honey", "I Want Some Food", "Shoe Shine Shakedown", and "Cha Cha Cha". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – with book!)

✨✧ IndeepLast Night A DJ Saved My Life ... LP
Sound Of New York, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Indeep are best known for the title single of this one – as "Last Night A DJ Saved My Life" still plays large for all of us, a bit hokey, to be sure, but with a great old school beat and some great guitar bits! This is the full album built around that single, and it's got some similar sounding tunes with a groove that's not too bad. Plus, you get to see what the band looks like on the cover – and trust us, they look terrible! Titles include "Buffalo Bill", "Love Is Like A Gun", "Slow Down", "Lipstick Politics", and "When Boys Talk". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo stamp.)

✨✧ Skinny BoysWeightless ... LP
Warlock, 1986. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first and best album by the ever slept-on Skinny Boys – recorded for Warlock with a raw, gritty sound! Weightless is a far more terse effort than the Boys ever recorded for Jive later on. It's actually one of the harder-hitting records we can think of on Warlock – a trait we love! Jock's human beat box is as prevalent and forceful as the rhymes, beats and scratches. Funky fresh hip hop that's very much of the era, but still a great listen now and forever! Tracks include "Jock Box", "Unity", "Get Funky", "Weightless", "Ill", "Feed Us The Beat", "Awesome", "Rip The Cut" and "Skinny Boys". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

Hollyridge Strings/Stu PhillipsChristmas Favorites ... LP
Capitol, 1965. Sealed ... $7.99
Groovy Christmas instrumentals from the great Stu Phillips – one of the most sublime sessions recorded by his studio group at Capitol Records in the 60s – and that's saying a lot, given that they also took on music by The Beatles and Beach Boys! Stu brings a subtle sort of groove to his strings here – mixing the full orchestrations with a well-punctuated sense of rhythm – usually using electric bass right at the bottom of the mix, which steps things along nicely – and also plucking the strings in cool ways too, which creates sort of a link between earlier Mancini moments and later grooves from The Soulful Strings! The tunes are mostly familiar, but re-strung beautifully by Stu – and titles include "Do You Hear What I Hear", "Little Saint Nick", "Jingle Bell Rock", "Santa's Got A Brand New Bag", "Santa Claus Is Comin To Town", "The Christmas Song", and "Winter Wonderland". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a stained corner from seepage.)

✨✧ PortisheadPortishead ... LP
Go Beat (UK), 1997. Near Mint- 2LP ... Just Sold Out!
The second Portishead LP, even spookier and darker than the first, but still with an infectious groove running underneath. Strings, brass and cinematic guitar all coalesce under Beth Gibbons for the signature unsettling Portishead sound. Eleven tracks in all, including "Cowboys", "All Mine", "Mourning Air", "Only You" and "Elysium". LP, Vinyl record album
(2 LP US pressing.)

✨✧ Beach BoysBeach Boys' Christmas Album ... LP
Capitol, 1960s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A harmony heaven way to enjoy the Holiday! The group's version of Christmas has to be one of the best-ever recorded in rock and roll – and given the undercurrent of sadness that was coming forth in their non-Holiday hits of the period, the style here is perfect to fit the melancholy mood of the Christmas tunes – even some of the more upbeat numbers! Production is great too – beautiful enough to hold up strongly after all these years – and titles include "Blue Christmas", "Merry Christmas Baby", "Christmas Day", "Little Saint Nick", "The Man With All The Toys", "Santa's Beard", "Auld Lang Syne", "Frosty The Snowman", and "I'll Be Home For Christmas". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label stereo pressing. Cover has a split bottom seam, some wear, and staining.)
