John Zorn/Jay CampbellHen To Pan ... CD
Tzadik, 2015. New Copy ... $10.99 18.98
A set that draws inspiration and compositions from John Zorn, but which is really the brainchild of cellist Jay Campbell – who works here with a mindblowing approach to the music! The cello has never sounded so bold and powerful before – arguably as free and frenetic as Zorn's alto during it's glory days – and Campbell also works with an additional cello and violin, plus drums from Tyshawn Sorey, and a bit of piano from Stephen Gosling. The CD features three different readings of Zorn's "Ouroboros", plus the canonic "Occam's Razor" – and the additional "Aristos", which is billed as "ten metaphysical ambiguities for violin, cello, and piano".

Various90 Degrees Of Shade – Hot Jump-Up Island Sounds From The Caribbean – Mambo, Calypso, Goombay, Mento, Merengue, Cult & Compas Music ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $19.99 22.99
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 "Come To The Caribbean" by The Eloise Trio, "Timbales" by Alfredito, "Mississippi Mambo" by Noro Morales, "Donkey Wants Water" by Bay Street Boys, "Nago" by Katherine Dunham Ensemble, "Nassau Blues" by Peanuts Taylor, "West Indies" by Sonny Burke, "Mary's Lamb" by Hubert Porter & The Jamaica Calypso Funmakers, "Theme For Conga" by Julio Gutierrez, "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.

VariousAtlantic Unearthed – Soul Sisters (rare & previously unissued tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $5.99
Sublime soul work from the glory days of Atlantic Records – and most of it unfamiliar too! As with the male volume in this great Unearthed series, this female volume is filled with amazing rarities from Atlantic – 5 previously unreleased tunes by some of the label's best female singers, plus another 11 tracks that show that even when they were topping the charts, Atlantic was still dedicated to putting out some great deep soul singles! Compiler David Nathan really did his homework here – not only picking out choice singles and b-sides for the compilation, but also digging up the rare unissued tunes that totally make the set worthwhile, even if you think you've got it all in your record collection! Titles include the previously unissued tracks "I Ain't That Easy To Lose" by Betty Swann, "Rescue Me" by Dee Dee Warwick, "It's Growing" by Margie Joseph, "Count The Days" by Patti Labelle & The Bluebells, and "Ain't Nothing Gonna Change Me" by The Sweet Inspirations – plus the titles "Thankful For What I Got" by Barbara Lewis, "It Ain't Who You Know" by Jackie Moore, "Full Time Woman" by Irma Thomas, "I Got To Love Sombody's Baby" by Judy Clay, "What A Man" by Laura Lee, "My Way" by Aretha Franklin, and "Please Little Angel" by Doris Troy.

VariousBlame It On The Dogg – The Swamp Dogg Anthology 1968 to 1978 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $14.99
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.

VariousBoobs – The Junkshop Glam Discotheque ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
A stunning set of funky glam rock from the key years of the British scene – all tunes that are nicely grooving with that madly compressed style that we love so much! Guitar and vocals all seem to be coming out of the same fuzzed-out source on the tunes – as basslines step stiffly forward and drums snap with a flatness that supports the style perfectly – creating a glittering groove that goes way way beyond the better-known hits of the era! The set's a real treasure trove to our ears – filled with 20 tunes that we'd never heard before, but which easily match (if not blow away) our best expectations for glammy groovers. Titles include "Albatross" by Chunky, "Turtle Dove" by The Rats, "Little Bit O Soul" by Iron Cross, "Natural Gas" by Paul Ryan, "Love Is Alright" by Hot Rod, "Guitar Man" by Shelby, "Motor Boat" by Jimmy Jukebox, "Let's Go" by Rock Rebellion, and "Shout It Out" by Ice Cream.

✨✧ 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.

VariousFrom Alamo To El Dorado – Great Western TV & Movie Soundtracks ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1950s/1960s. New Copy ... $19.99 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.

VariousHillbillies – They Tried To Rock Vol 1 ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $19.99 26.98
They tried to rock – and rock they did – in this very cool assortment of rockabilly numbers cut by cats who were better-known as mainstream country artists – all of whom were trying on a new set of sounds during the early years of rock and roll! Some of the singers here were older established acts, and others were younger talents who hadn't yet decided on a direction – and together, they all make some mad musical moments here – tracks that have firm country roots, but lots of surprising rockabilly inflections – not the kind of sounds you might normally expect from artists like Webb Pierce, Lefty Frizell, George Jones, or Eddy Arnold. The package is a treasure in the best Bear Family mode – with copious notes and images that really get at the uniqueness of the work – and a 31 track package filled with great titles that include "Teenage Boogie" by Webb Pierce, "I Gotta Know" by Wanda Jackson, "Blue Suede Shoes" by Pee Wee King, "Little Lovin'" by Mimi Moman, "Ten Cats Down" by The Miller Sisters, "Hey Little Dreamboat" by Rose Maddox, "Go, Boy, Go" by Carl Smith, "Maybelline" by Carl Perkins, "Hep Cat Baby" by Eddy Arnold, "Let The Teardrops Fall" by Patsy Cline, "Red Hen Rock" by The Louvin Brothers, "You're Humbuggin Me" by Lefty Frizzell, "I'm Comin Home" by Johnny Horton, "One Night" by Kirk Hansard, and "Goodnight Sweetheart Goodnight" by Johnnie & Jack.

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.

VariousJustice Dub – Rare Dubs From Justice Records 1975 to 1977 ... CD
Jamaican Recordings (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
Very dubby dubs from the legendary Justice Records – tracks that are deeper, darker, and moodier than most mainstream iterations of the format at the time – that best take on music from dirt, served up with more than enough echo to send the instrumentation and vocals into some very abstract spaces! Musicians include Chinna smith on guitar, Ossie Hibbert on organ, Sly Dunbar on drums, and Robbie Shakespeare on bass – and dubs are based around tunes by Johnny Clarke, Horace Andy, Cornell Campbell, and others – with titles that include "A Version Of Class", "Jah Jah Dub", "Forward Dub", "Natty No Lie Version", "Don't Try To Dub 1", "A Thankful Dub", "A Confusion Version", and "Collie Version".

VariousKollektion 1B – Sky Records Compiled By Tim Gane ... LP
Bureau B (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99
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.

Explosive Joe Meek instrumentals from the 60s UK scene – with scorchers by The Tornados, The Packabeats, The Moontrekkers, The Fentones, The Ted Taylor Four, The Outlaws, Tony Hatch, The Phantoms and many more! If you're unfamiliar, Meek was a virtuoso producer with a sound and style that was anything but meek – anchored by raw rhythms, searing guitars and electronic embellishments that were far ahead of their time – all fueling these mad instrumentals with touches of R&B, rockabilly, surf and soundtracky styles ranging from sci fi to westerns! Wild, fun stuff that's almost completely instrumental. Titles includes "Theme From 'The Traitors'" and "Evening In Paris" by The Packabeats, "Telstar" and "Earthy" by The Tornados, "Ku-Pow!" and "Sioux Serenade" by The Outlaws, ""There's Something At The Bottom Of The Well" and "Hatashiai" by The Moontrekkers, "The Mexican" by The Fentones, "Cloak And Dagger" by The Echoes, "Taboo" by Sounds Inc", "Checkpoint", "Border Patrol" and ore by Dennis Newey, "Out Of This World" by Tony Hatch and more. 33 tracks in all!

A great batch of early 60s singles – with a focus on some of the sultrier sides of the soul 45s scene(s) – compiled from rare singles on Specialty, Decca, Savoy, Memo, Federal, Peacock and other imprints! Like the first volume in this series, it's focused on the rollicking early 60s sound, but this one's got a more feminine touch, with more female-fronted recordings, with some wonderful tunes by Hot Breath Hannah, Carol Fran, Fontella Bass and more, along with a number of male and group numbers, with titles "Please Mr Playboy" and "Looking For A Man" by Hot Breath Hannah with The Paul Mitchell Trio, "Send Me Some Money" by Varetta Diamond, "Knocks Me Out" by Guitar Jr, "That's A Pretty Good Love" by Big Maybelle, "The Biddy Leg" by The Memos, "One More Kiss" by Jesse Perkins & The Bad Boys, "Excite Me Daddy" by Camille Howard, "My Good Lovin" by Fontella Bass and more. 16 in all.

Great stuff, from chugging rustic guitar and voice blues, to some very moving pre-R&B gospel vocal gems, impeccable all around! Titles include "Last Kind Words" by Geechie Wiley, "Church Bells" by Kid Prince Moore, "Catfish Blues" by Robert Petway, "Rolling Log" by Lottie Kimbrough, "That's No Way To Get Along" by Robert Wilkins, "Money Cannot Buy Your Soul" by The Anglin Brothers, "Death Is Only A Dream" by Edward Clayborn and more.

Very groovy! This series never stops being great – and this 7th volume is a stunning set of mellow jazzy grooves, with kind of a slight 60s easy bent to them! The list of tracks is very nice, with many light lilting groovers – including a number with a good Brazilian feel to them. Titles include "Misturada" by Kjeli Ohman, "A Starlett For You" by Andre Luterau, "Samba Para Norma" by Joel Wanroogenbroek, "Summertime" by Herb Alpert, "We've Only Just Begun" by Frank Cunimondo Trio, "Take Seven" by Roger Roger, "Bim Bom" by Silvio Silvera, "Berimbau" by Americo Bellotto, and "Kidnapping" by Karlheinz Schafer.

VariousMusic City Vocal Groups – Greasy Love Songs Of Teenage Romance, Regret, Hope, & Despair ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $21.99
A wealth of rare group soul and doo wop from the Bay Area scene – a good deal of which has never been issued before! The work here comes from the same Music City studios that have been brought to light in recent years as a treasure trove of 60s soul and 70s funk – and these tracks represent the rich legacy at Music City in the years before – the company's really special talent for recording vocal groups in all of their power! Many of the acts here are young, and have a nicely gritty feel – free from some of the more polished modes that were creeping into east coast doo wop at the end of the 50s, and much more in a stripped-down street corner mode – even though the Bay Area probably didn't boast as many street corners as New York or Philly! Instrumentation is often relatively spare – just a slight bit of rhythm that really lets the singers take the lead – and the set features a whopping 50 tracks in all, 34 of which appear here for the first time ever. Includes work by The Italics, The Klix, Bob & Jessie, The Corvettes, The Pagans, The Midnights, The 5 Campbells, The Holidays, The Girls, The Echotones, and many others. CD

Light In The Attic, Mid 60s/1970s/Mid 80s. New Copy 2CDs ... $18.99 19.99
A pretty amazing collection of rare work from the Native American underground – not the late 60s/early 70s records that tried to cash in on growing pride for the Native American scene, but obscure Canadian sides that represent a rich array of sounds we've never heard before! The styles here are great – and run from folksy to trippy to surprisingly tuneful – and although the music spans a 20 year space, there's a really solid early 70s approach overall – with production that's never too slick, and a real sense of respect for the singer/songwriters who make the package so great. The whole thing's as much a book as it is a musical collection – as the notes are hugely expansive, over 120 pages with the CD set – and answer a huge amount of questions, and fill in a lot of background detail too. The set features 34 titles in all – with work by names we'd never heard before – Willie Dunn, Sugluck, Willie Thrasher, Lawrence Martin, William Tagoona, Sikmiut, Saddle Lake Drifting Cowboys, Morley Loon, Peter Frank, David Campbell, and others. CD
