Hank WilliamsLegend Lives Anew – Hank Williams With Strings ... LP
MGM, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Hank Sr. gets dressed up in much more than the usual crisp cowboy formal wear he fancied for this late 60s repackaging of some of his long ago hits – with some high lonesome string arrangements added to the original recordings. Tracks include "Kaw-Liga", "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry", "A House Without Love", "Wedding Bells", "I'm Sorry For You, My Friend", "A Picture From Life's Other Side", "Lovesick Blues", "You Win Again", "Let's Turn Back The Years", "They'll Never Take Her Love From Me", "Men With Broken Hearts", and "I Don't Care (If Tomorrow Ever Comes)".

Bobby WomackPoet/Poet II ... CD
Beverly Glen/Abkco, 1982/1984. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
Bobby's 2 groovy and highly successful Poet albums from the 80s – back to back on CD! The original Poet album showed the world that he was still very much on top of his game at the time. The sound here is great – still with that older Womack rasp and warmth, but also done in a slightly smoother mode that grooves things up with some modern soul touches, yet never loses Bobby's charm! Tunefully, the record is one of his best in years – with some wonderful mellow soul groovers that never fail to delight – all produced with a warm California sound, and featuring some great backing vocals by The Waters and a host of other Womacks. Titles include "So Many Sides Of You", "Lay Your Lovin On Me", "Secrets", "Just My Imagination", "Games", "If You Think You're Lonely Now", and "Where Do We Go From Here". Poet II is another smooth soulful set that features some nice guest work from the likes of George Benson, Patti Labelle, and Wilton Felder. Bobby's voice is always a treasure, with a soulful edge that never goes away, no matter how smooth the production! Titles include "Tryin To Get Over You", "Through The Eyes Of A Child", "Love Has Finally Come At Last", "Who's Foolin Who", and "I Wish I Had Someone To Go Home To". CD

✨✧ YellowmanNobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt ... LP
Greensleeves (UK), 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $10.99 11.98
Classic mid 80s dancehall from Yellowman! Production by Henry Junjo Lawes, backing by Roots Radics and rhythms laid down at Channel One – often the recipe for greatness – and that's on the menu here. Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt came at an inarguable peak for Yellowman, with unstoppable rhythms and Yellowman's brilliant way of delivering gruff lyricism in an approachable way. Revolutionary material from an icon at a creatively crucial peak. Titles include "Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt", "Strictly Mi Belly", "Wreck A Pum Pum", "Hill & Gully Rider", "Bedroom Mazuka", "Good Loving", "Body Move", and "Watch Your Words".

Greensleeves, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 13.98
A gem of a joint headlining record by Yellowman & Fathead, Purpleman and Sister Nancy – with a varied vocal flavor, but a sweetly simmering cohesive vibe – thanks to top shelf production by Junjo Lawes! All tunes features backing by the Hi Times Band, recorded at Channel One with a timeless feel. 10 tracks in all, including"Mr Wong", "Baby Father", and "Mash It Up Now" by Yellowman & Fathead, "Feeling Irie", "Get Ready", "Out Of Hand", and "Westmoreland Skank" by Purpleman, and "A No Any Man Can Test Sister Nancy", "Dance Pon The Corner" and "Bang Belly" by Sister Nancy.

Young JessieDon't Happen No More ... LP
Jazzman (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
Solid sounds from Young Jessie – a onetime member of the famous Flairs, but a hell of a singer on his own! Jessie's got a raw power here that lives up to the best of the 50s R&B scene in California – and the set features work that the singer recorded for Capitol, Modern, Mercury, and other labels – all material that hardly ever got the right sort of circulation at the time – but which sounds brilliant here in one tight package! Backings are often razor-sharp, with a mix of R&B and jazz influences – a nod to the artist's later fame as jazz singer Obie Jessie, who we've stocked on some great contemporary spiritual jazz sessions. These sides are all soul, though – an early version of the style, produced with a nicely gritty edge – on cuts that include "Teacher Gimme Back", "I Smell A Rat", "Lonesome Desert", "Oochie Coochie", "Hit Git & Split", "Borwn Eyes", "The Wrong Door", "Lula Belle", "Mary Lou", and "Make Me Feel A Little Good". LP, Vinyl record album

Various90 Degrees Of Shade – Hot Jump-Up Island Sounds From The Caribbean Vol 2 – Mambo, Calypso, Goombay, Mento, Merengue, Cult & Compas Music ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99 29.99
A way cooler set of music than you might expect – not the kind of overdone Caribbean cliches of the mainstream, but some really great lesser-known gems that mix together sounds and styles from Cuba to Haiti, to Jamaica, and beyond – served up here in a host of gems all hand-picked by the Soul Jazz Records crew! The music here is tighter and better produced than some of the earlier calypso featured on compilations on Honest Jons – but the sounds are still quite striking, and the music goes way beyond familiar modes from Harry Belafonte – to mix of jazzy elements, Latin rhythms, local styles, and lots more – with wonderful notes that really get at the music as well. A real surprise – one we love a lot more than we expected – with titles that include "Yembe Laroco" by Celia Cruz, "Omo Belli" by Gina Martin, "Maiz" by Katherine Dunham Presents Singing Gods, "Fifty Cents" by Duke Of Iron, "Anna Macao" by Eloise Trio, "Liza See Me Here" by King Scratch, "Con La Punta Del Pie Teresa" by Cortijo, "Perseverance" by Count Lasha, and "Whai Whai Whai" by Lord Fly.

✨✧ VariousAttack Dub – Rare Dubs From Attack Records 1973 to 1977 ... LP
Attack/Jamaican Recordings (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $15.99
The attack is sharp here, but the decay is what really moves us – that slow fade and spacey sound that makes classic dubs like this so great! The package pulls together lots of rare tracks from the Attack label of Bunny Lee – most with music by The Aggrovators, and a whole extra level of sound and space from the production – which really abstracts the core elements in this totally great way! Tunes include dubs of work by Linval Thompson, Johnny Clarke, Cornell Campbell, Barry Brown, and others – and titles include "Don't Cut Off Your Dub", "A Dancing Roots Version", "Dance With Me Baby", "I'm Gone Dub", "Money Dub", "The Meduca", and "Easy Skanking Version".

VariousBest Of Original Dancehall Vol 1 ... LP
Trojan, Late 70s/1980s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
A strong set of early gems in the dancehall style – stone classic jams from the immediate post roots era, still with strong ties to the steady rhythmic style of earlier Jamaican music, and often with easygoing, soulful vocals – with benchmark jams by Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs, Cornell Cambpell, Freddie MCGregor, Johnny Osbourne, Irsael Vibration, Sofia George and John Holt. Really wonderful stuff that strongly stands the test of time – it's amazingly fresh to this day! Includes "Sitting And Watching" by Dennis Brown, "Rope In" by Cornell Campbell, "No Competition" byu Freddie McGregor, "Lend Me Your Chopper" by Johnny Osbourne, "Why You So Craven" by Israel Vibration, "Revolution" by Dennis Brown, "Girlie Girlie " by Sophia George and more.

VariousBlame It On The Dogg – The Swamp Dogg Anthology 1968 to 1978 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $9.99
Jerry "Swamp Dogg" Williams is a man of many talents – a musical reach that goes way beyond his familiar solo records of the 70s, and which stretches back strongly with some deep roots in 60s soul! Back in the day, Williams worked often as a producer, arranger, and songwriter for a variety of different artists – a good deal of whom are featured on this set – one of the best collections we've ever seen of Jerry's mighty talents in the studio! In a way, Williams is almost better behind the booth in the studio than he is in front of the microphone – as he's got a way of handling an artist that really gets to the heart of their talents – mixed with his own sense of hutspah that helps get the recordings out to the market where a weaker producer might have failed at the job. CD features 24 tracks in all, along with some great notes on these other Swamp Dogg productions by Jerry – and tracks include "Plea #3" by Eleanor Grant, "Your Best Friend" by The Drifters, "He's Gone" by Patti LaBelle & The Bluebelles, "On Your Way Home" by C & The Shells, "Shipwrecked" by Jerry Williams, "Stop Knocking" by Ruth Brown, "God Bless" by Wolfmoon, "Complication #4" by Arthur Conley, "Don't Trust A Woman" by Slick N The Family Brick, and "What's So Wrong With You Loving Me" by Kenny Carter.

VariousCiao Bella – Italian Girl Singers Of The 60s ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
Great groovy pop from the Italian scene of the 60s – a wealth of rare singles from female singers, almost all of whom we've never heard before! We'll confess to a long love and deep knowledge of female French singers from the time – but also admit a strong ignorance about most Italian pop, which always seems a bit harder to find – especially collected together in sets like this for the English-speaking world. And while we totally love the French sets from Ace Records, we almost dig this one even more – as the whole thing's so fresh, so groovy that each new tune is a real delight – as bold orchestrations mix with mod rhythms, rockish instrumentation, and some totally cool Italian lyrics sung by a batch of female singers who've definitely got us already digging for more. Titles include "Baluba Shake" by Brunetta E I Suoi Balubas, "Il Mio Posto Quale" by Ornella Vanoni, "Sono Qui Con Voi by Caterina Caselli, "Un Amore Inutile" by Isabella Ianetti, "La Notte E Fatta Per Rubare" by Catherine Spaak, "Il Geghege" by Rita Pavone, "Ragazzo Triste" by Patty Pravo, "Se Telefonando" by Mina, and "Questa Sinfona" by Carmen Villani.

Mastercuts (UK), 1970s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
One of the best-ever comps in the Mastercuts series (although all of them are pretty darn great!) This one's got an excellent mix of rare funk and modern soul tracks, with stunning groovers like "Say You Love Me Girl" by Breakwater, "Movin' In the Right Direction" by Steve Parks, "It's Your Love" by Ethel Beatty, "Moonshadow" by Labelle, "So Different" by Kinky Foxx, "Why I Came To California" by Leon Ware, and "Riding High" by Faze-O. A great mix of jazzy grooves, hip hop samples, and dancefloor tracks! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousCriminale Vol 4 – Violenza (with bonus CD) ... LP
Flipper/Penny (Italy), 1970s. New Copy ... $22.99
An Italian Sound Library compilation series so full of gritty funk grooves, it's positively criminal! This might be the best volume in the series yet – really getting to the nitty gritty of the European soundtrack funk style of the end of the 60s and most of the 70s – some so minimally propulsive that they're stripped to just blazing psych-steeped electric guitar or funky drums and bass rhythms, while others are more fully fleshed out blasts of small combo jazz funk. The fourth volume in this impressive series includes some previously unreleased bits, and 18 tracks in all: "Contestation" by Daniela Casa, "Baterasso" by Remigio Ducros, "Lupin", "by Piero Montanari, "Diatomea" by Stelio Subell, "Tertz Blues" by Joel VDB, "Alligator Terror" by Stelvio Cipriani, "Tea Room" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "Canottaggio" by Remigio Ducros, "Afrotheme" by Paolo Ferrara and more.

VariousFrom Alamo To El Dorado – Great Western TV & Movie Soundtracks ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1950s/1960s. New Copy ... $14.99 23.98
Beautiful, simply beautiful! The set features 23 tracks from a range of western-themed movies and TV shows – not really spaghetti westerns, but the sort of popular American work of the 50s and 60s, which often starred bigger names in show business, and which features popular vocal themes interpreted by chart stars of the time. The approach is quite different than most of our other soundtrack selections – a wealth of groovy pop vocal tunes united through western themes, and compiled together in a fantastic package with images from the films. Titles include "Fury" by The Prarie Chiefs, "The Man From Laramie" by Al Martino, "The Ballad Of Cat Ballou" by Nat King Cole & Stubby Kaye, "The Lonely Man" by Tennesse Ernie Ford, "Man With True Grit" by Glen Campbell, "Buttons & Bows" by Bob Hope, "The Wind The Wind" by Dean Martin, "Old Turkey Buzzard" by Jose Feliciano, "Marmalade Molasses & Honey" by Andy Williams, "The Legend Of Wyatt Earp" by Shorty Long, "Stagecoach To Cheyenne" by Wayne Newton, and "Bronco" by Johnny Gregory.

VariousInstrumental Explosion – Incendiary Funk & R&B Instrumentals 1966-1973 ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Funky funky funky – way more so than you might think from the hokey title! The set's overflowing with rare instrumentals pulled from the indie label and funky 45 underground of the late 60s and early 70s – very much in the spirit of the Super Funk compilations on BGP, but almost harder-hitting, as the groove's completely without vocals overall – and the range of material is even more obscure than some of the usual BGP/Ace bits! The combos on the set range from rocking R&B combos to early funky jazz outfits – and the recording quality on most of these tracks is nice and rough and ready – with just the right edge to send over these cuts even more! Titles include "More Soul" by Ron Buford, "Ninety Eight Cents Plus Tax" by Detroit City Limits, "Chocolate Cherry" by Joe Tex Band, "Humpin" by Frank Armstrong & The Stingers, "Stokin" by Leon Ferguson & The Groove Tones, "Thing" by Lowell Fulsom, "Sundance (part 1)" by Lorenzo Holden, "Put Your Weight On It (part 1)" by Fillmore Street Soul Rebellion, "Roly Poly Mickey Lolich" by The Fans, and "Bad On Bad" by Chet Ivey & His Fabulous Avengers.

VariousIt's Zimmerman's World We Just Live In It ... CD
Pet Records, Mid 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... $9.99
A freewheelin' compilation of obscure, groovy Bob Dylan knockoff singles from the mid 60s – pretty wild stuff! It's got a few numbers by singers who so totally and so brazenly imitate Dylan's vocal mannerisms, they almost sound like weird, mirror image, bizarro world songs by the man himself – and many more that kind of do their own thing, albeit with Dylan-esque lyrical imagery – all of it very well produced and performed. It's not all by complete unknowns (how does it feeeeeeeeellllll???), with a track by Tommy Boyce of Boyce & Hart and Monkees songwriting fame, Gary Usher cohort Dick Campbell and others, but most of it is cool & strange stuff by folks we've never heard of – with material ranging from chiming folk rock to surrealistic psych pop! Includes "Breaking Your Balloon" by Johnny Cymbal, "Leaving It All Behind" by The Toads, "Gotta Turn Myself On, Babe" by TJ Black, "Come Free My Mind" by Darrell Cotton, "Thank You Babe" by The Changin' Times, "Pretty Thing (Your Out Of Sight)".

VariousKollektion 1B – Sky Records Compiled By Tim Gane ... LP
Bureau B (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. Sealed ... $16.99
A wonderful dip into the legendary Sky Records catalog from Germany – home to some of the most inventive, creative electronic work of the late 70s – and a key inspiration on generations of musicians for years to come! As proof of that, this set's put together by Tim Gane of Stereolab – who's out to show the more "pop" side of the Sky catalog – a claim that's a bit tongue-in-cheek, given that most of these cuts don't feature any vocals or poppy hooks at all! Yet there is a way of moving electronics forward that really bridges a space between earlier academic or proggish modes, and some of the thinner 80s sounds to come – a really special Sky way of doing a hell of a lot with just a little, often with results that are surprisingly warm, and very resonant after all these years. Titles on this second volume include "Rattenwiesel" by Moebius, "In Der Zeit" by Gunter Schickert, "Auf Der Hohe" by Rodelius, "Selstsame Gegend" by Cluster, "The Belldog" by Eno Moebius Roedelius, "Trummerkopfe" by Asmus Tietchens, and "Himmelblau" by Riechmann. LP, Vinyl record album
