✨✧ Archie Bell & The DrellsDance Your Troubles Away ... LP
TSOP, 1975. Very Good ... $3.99
Although Archie Bell & The Drells had recorded earlier with Gamble & Huff on Atlantic, this is their first album for the team's own label – and it's a killer! In a way, Archie and group were sort of responsible for getting Gamble & Huff their own famous imprint in the first place – because their work with the team on Atlantic yielded some instant hits that really pointed the way towards the hit Gamble & Huff style of the 70s, and that sound is brought up-to-date nicely on this LP. The record really retains the strong vocal sound of earlier years – and has some of the best harmonies the band ever recorded, very much in the mode of The O'Jays or Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes. McFadden & Whitehead and Bunny Sigler wrote most of the material, backing is by the Instant Funk group, and the Gamble & Huff team handled production on all cuts. Titles include "Let's Groove", "I Won't Leave You Honey, Never", "Let's Groove", "The Soul City Walk", "Dance Your Troubles Away", and "I Love You (But You Don't Even Know It)".

✨✧ William BellRelating ... LP
Stax, 1973. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A great return to basics for William Bell – and an album recorded with a warm, intimate quality that we really love! The vibe here is almost in the style of some of the growing Malaco work coming out of the Jackson scene – with a sound that's smooth, but somehow even more deeply soulful than before – lots of room up top for the lead vocals to come across with a sense of personal commitment – but also some full, rich backings that include organ, guitars, and even a bit of strings. Rhodes Chalmers Rhodes back William up on most tracks – and titles include "Lovin On Borrowed Time", "Getting What You Want", "Such A Fever", "Drinkin & Thinkin", and "Nobody But You".

✨✧ Archie Bell & The DrellsHard Not To Like It ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the strong Philly LPs by Archie Bell and the Drells (and they really did make the transition to Philly pretty well). Side one has some of their more blatent attempts to appeal to the then hot disco crowd, but side two has them back in a great easy soul two-step sound, like "It's Hard Not To Like You", "There's No Other Like You" and "Real Good Feeling".

✨✧ Archie Bell & The DrellsTighten Up ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible bit of southern funk – the first landmark LP by Archie Bell & The Drells, and the first big burst of energy from the Texas scene of the 60s! The album's incredible – with Archie up front on rough-hewn vocals, the band grooving in a mad tangle of guitar, bass, and drums, and some super-fierce horn work by the TSU Tornadoes! You've no doubt heard the band's classic "Tighten Up (part 1)", but this album also includes the incredible "part 2" to the track – which takes the groove a million miles higher! And the whole album's equally great – filled with other tight soul gems that include "A Thousand Wonders", "I Don't Want To Be A Playboy", "Give Me Time", and "When You Left Heartache Began".

✨✧ George DuningBell, Book, & Candle ... LP
Colpix, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful jazzy soundtrack from the end of the 50s – written for the ultra-cool film Bell, Book, & Candle – which starred Kim Novak and Jimmy Stewart in a comedy about beatnik witches in New York! Much of the soundtrack has a cool beat jazz sort of feel to it – and many tracks feature strong solo work by Pete and Conte Candoli, who also perform a bit in nightclub scenes in the film. Other tracks have a slightly more orchestral feel, but one that's still quite light, given the nice themes in the movie – and which also features some playful bits that still keep things jazzy. Titles include "Way Out Calypso", "Send Me Nicky", "Pyewacket Returns", "Zodiac Blues", "L'Assassin Ennuye", and "Shep Shook". LP, Vinyl record album

Howard BlakeElephant Called Slowly ... LP
Bell, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
An unbelievably fantastic soundtrack – written for the silly sequel to the film Born Free! Howard Blake lays down some amazingly funky instrumental tracks that have a light "jungle" sound – with lots of rolling bass and hard drums in a sweet late 60s funky sort of style. There's at least 2 or 3 great break tracks on here, and there's a number of other nice ones with a breezy jazzy feel to them. The whole thing's great, with nary a dud track, and the highlights include "An Elephant Called Slowly", "Mr. Mopoji", "Elephant Rides Again", "Poli-Poli", and "Cheetah". LP, Vinyl record album

Surprisingly sublime pop from The Partridge Family – served up with superb arrangements from Wes Farrell and Mike Melvoin, the latter of whom plays some really great keyboards on the set! In fact, all the instrumentation is pretty great – guitar from Dennis Budimir and Larry Carlton, drums from Hal Blaine, and bass from Max Bennett – all nice and tight, in a way that makes these tunes a lot groovier than you might otherwise think! Titles include "Girl You Make My Day", "Last Night", "Every Song Is You", "Something New Got Old", "Am I Losing You", "Hello Hello", and "There'll Come A Time". LP, Vinyl record album

Great raw vocal group material by the Van Dykes – a southern male vocal trio with a style that covered a number of different areas, from hard post-doo wop harmony, to sweeter Impressions-like soul. We'd only heard a couple of the group's singles for the Mala label, and we're really pleased to discover how much of their stuff is on a par with what we'd already known! LP, Vinyl record album

Bell, 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
An excellent rock album with lots of funky breaks, and some very very heavy drums by Rupert Baer! The set was put together by Shel Talmy, but he also got some help from the great Alan Hawkshaw, of funky KPM and Serge Gainsbourg fame – who seems to hone the record into a groove that goes way beyond its initial potential! The overall concept is a bit silly – as you might guess from the cover – and although some of the lyrics are lackluster, the record more than makes up for it with the mix of drums, bass, and organ in the instrumental sections – and there's more than a few nice moments here to please the beatheads! Tracks include "Make Me Make You", "No One To Turn To", "Squadron Leader Johnson", "Pate De Foie Gras", and "Knock On My Door". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Arthur BlytheBlythe Spirit ... LP
Columbia, 1981. Very Good+ ... $2.99
A set that showcases the never-ending growth and imagination of reedman Arthur Blythe during this fruitful period of his career – and his ability to effortlessly blend together different elements in his music – especially sides of the New York loft jazz scene, and the Chicago-based AACM! The tunes are beautiful – mostly originals, and showing a richer spirituality than even a year before – while still working in that compellingly rhythmic mode that Arthur was hitting during these years – in a lineup that features Blythe on alto, Abdul Wadud on cello, Kelvyn Bell on guitar, Steve McCall and Bobby Battle on drums, John Hicks on piano, Amina Claudine Myers on organ, and Fred Hopkins on bass. The mix of electric and acoustic elements is fantastic – very fresh, even all these many years later – and titles include "Misty", "Spirits In The Field", "Just A Closer Walk With Thee", "Reverence", and "Contemplation".

✨✧ Anthony Braxton3 Compositions Of New Jazz (North Lincoln) ... LP
Delmark, 1968. Very Good ... $9.99
Even at an early age, Anthony Braxton was already experimenting with new forms of jazz composition – and this 1968 debut as a leader is filled with the imaginative approaches to music that would make him a key shaper of jazz in the next decade! The tracks here are all quite long, and although free-sounding, still have an intrinsic logic dictated by Braxton's compositional ideals – played by himself on alto, soprano sax, clarinet, flute, and a variety of other instruments – in a quartet that features Leo Smith on trumpet and mellophone, Muhal Richard Abrams on piano and cello, and Leroy Jenkins on violin and viola. In true AACM fashion, all players pick up other instruments as the tunes roll on – percussion bits, kazoo, slide whistle, bells, and more – almost more Art Ensemble-like than some of Braxton's more tightly-controlled environments on later records. Titles include two pieces titled in Braxton's equation-like style – plus "The Bell". LP, Vinyl record album

Dee Dee BridgewaterDee Dee Bridgewater (1980) ... LP
Elektra, 1980. Near Mint- ... $9.99
One of Dee Dee Bridgewater's few truly soul-based records – recorded during a brief break from jazz at the end of the 70s, and done with some sweetly grooving from Thom Bell! The sound here's a bit like that of some of the later Philly International work from the same stretch – a maturing style that still has a bit of the earlier groove in place, yet which also takes on a more sophisticated approach, especially on the mellower cuts and ballads. In a way, the format's a bit like that used for Jean Carn or Phyllis Hyman at the time – and like those singers, Dee Dee seems to work best here when she's got a nice gentle groove to bring out the jazzier inflections in her voice! Titles include "When You're In Love", "That's The Way Love Should Feel", "Give In To Love", "Lonely Disco Dancer", "One In A Million Guy", and "Jody (Whoever You Are)". LP, Vinyl record album

John CarterNight Fire ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1981. Very Good+ ... $16.99
A lovely little record from John Carter – and a record with an even more sensitive feel than some of his other work of the time! The group's a quintet – with longtime associate Bobby Bradford on trumpet – yet the sound is in a much more different space than some of the other Carter/Bradford collaborations, much more clearly John's thing – given the way the tunes unfold. Reeds really get their space here – not just Carter's clarinet, but also the flute of James Newton, which seems to have more bite than usual – and in addition to Bradford's trumpet, other group members include Roberto Miranda on bass and William Jeffrey on percussion. Carter composed all tunes, and titles include "Buckin", "Night Fire", "Juba Stomp", "Morning Bell", and "Sweet Sunset". LP, Vinyl record album

The album's completely solid all the way through – and although it won't change your life as much as A Love Supreme, it will show what a fantastically strong player Coltrane was, in any sort of setting! Titles include "I Wish I Knew", "What's New", "Nancy", "You Don't Know What Love Is", and "All Or Nothing At All". LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Davis/Charlie VenturaEddie Davis & Charlie Ventura In Stereo (aka Battle Of Saxes) ... LP
King, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $19.99
Tremendous tenor work from both parties involved – but especially from Eddie Davis, who always sounds wonderful on his early sides for King! Davis has a clear, clean tone that's totally great – and given the short space of these tunes, he really gets a lot done with a little – in a tight way that's somewhat different than his later sides for Prestige. Backing on the Davis sides includes some organ – probably by Shirley Scott – and titles include "Mean To Me", "All Of You", "Out Of Nowhere", "All God's Chillun Got Rhythm", and "If I Were A Bell". Charlie Ventura's great too – a bit more modern, almost, than on some of his better-known sides – and playing with a mean, lean, boppish tone. Ventura titles include "Liza", "Give Me The Simple Life", "If I Had You", and "I Can't Give You Anything But Love". LP, Vinyl record album

The style here is somewhat more modern, but still plenty darn wonderful – with that sweetly crackling sound that's instantly recognizable on any Delfonics recording – produced and arranged beautifully by William Hart. And in fact, the slight change in backings makes for a fresher approach to the group's vocals than on some of their classics – a very groovy sound that we really like a lot!

Cadet, 1971. Good+ ... $4.99
A stunning set from the mighty mighty Dells – a cool collaboration with the legendary arranger Charles Stepney and songwriter Terry Callier – and a record that shows just how far the group had come since their streetcorner harmony days! The vocals are incredible – that rich blend of deep notes and soaring highs that made The Dells one of the most technically amazing soul groups in the 70s – and Stepney's arrangements follow in the same mode as his work for their Dionne Warwick album, and his music for Minnie Riperton and Ramsey Lewis – with lots of groovy currents on the bottom and soaring strings on the top – sophisticated, but completely soulful too – at a level that nobody else can touch! Terry Callier wrote the original tunes "The Love We Had Stays On My Mind", "Freedom Means", "Melody Man", "Free & Easy", "Rather Be With You", and "It's All Up To You" – and the set also includes great remakes of "One Less Bell To Answer", "Make It With You", and "If You Go Away/Love Story".

Impulse, 1962. Very Good ... $19.99
A seminal meeting of the old and new generations of jazz in the 60s – put together in perfect Impulse fashion! At some level, this is actually an early 60s John Coltrane Quartet album – with Duke Ellington sitting in for McCoy Tyner on piano, as that's the lineup on about half of the album – tracks that feature Coltrane on tenor, Elvin Jones on drums, and Jimmy Garrison on bass, all working with Ellington on the keys. On other titles, though, the album features Coltrane playing with a Duke-ish trio that has Aaron Bell on bass and Sam Woodyard on drums – slightly less modern, but with a nice sense of depth throughout! Overall, the the record does a great job of balancing between the best talents of both players – and titles include "Big Nick", "The Feeling Of Jazz", "Take The Coltrane", and "My Little Brown Book".

FunkadelicCosmic Slop ... LP
Westbound, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $49.99
One of our favorite early Funkadelic albums – and a real turning point for the group! Gone are the trippier guitar solos of earlier days, and in their place is a tighter approach to funk – one that has the band grooving hard and soulfully on shorter tracks that perfect the dark vision hinted at in the Maggot Brain years! The tunes are shorter, funkier, and catchier – and the vocals are especially great – so much so than on the title cut "Cosmic Slop" has harmonies so great you'd swear you were listening to late-Motown Temptations! Other tracks continue with a great soul-based focus, and include "You Can't Miss What You Can't Measure", "Nappy Dugout", "No Compute", and "Can't Stand the Strain" – and the record is packaged in a mind-blowing wraparound cover by Pedro Bell, the first of many the band would use!

Isaac HayesTough Guys ... LP
Enterprise, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
One of Isaac Hayes' richest soundtracks – deeper and more complicated than the groove of Shaft and Truck Turner, and filled with some great tunes that glow with color, life, and imagination – showing an Isaac Hayes that almost seems to be moving beyond the usual blackploitation groove! The album sports 2 really classic tunes – the title theme "Tough Guys", and the classic "Hung Up On My Baby" – both of which have a solidly funky feel that will more than please the usual soundtrack beathead crowd. But overall, the other tunes twist and turn in a delightful mix of modes – expanding on the soulful territory Ike first explored in his original soundtracks, and offering up a great range of moods and emotion. The album's got some especially great chromatic guitar work – and other titles include "Joe Bell", "Randolph & Dearborn", "Buns O Plenty", "Run Fay Run", and "Red Rooster". LP, Vinyl record album

The group features George Cables on piano, whose sound at this point is a perfect match of Bobby's chromatic style on the date – and although many of the tracks are standards, there's an openly creative feel to the record that matches some of Hutcherson's dates of the time with more original material. Herbie Lewis is on bass and Philly Joe Jones is on drums – and titles include "Star Eyes", "I Mean You", "All Of You", "Spring Is Here", "If I Were A Bell", and "Summertime". LP, Vinyl record album

Yusef LateefGentle Giant ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good ... $5.99
One of the greatest Yusef Lateef albums on Atlantic Records – and that's saying a lot, given the high level of quality he was hitting at the label! The album's a perfect blend of the newly-funky Lateef style with some hipper, more sophisticated touches – a mode that hints at his bigger-concept recordings to come, but which is still pretty lean and clean overall – and damn funky on most of the best tracks! Yusef plays a host of hip flutes here, plus tenor and oboe – and an almost equal star on the record is Kenny Barron, whose electric piano lines really make the album something special. The album begins with a long take on Barron's "Nubian Lady" which begins the record – and Kenny also contributed the tighter grooving "Jungle Plum". Other tracks include "African Song", "Queen Of The Night", "Poor Fishermen", "Below Yellow Bell", and a strange version of "Hey Jude" that goes on for a long time, and really messes with the volume – listed on the cover with the note "Do not adjust the playback level on your audio equipment – readjust your mind!"

Apple, 1971. Very Good- ... $14.99
Not the out there primal scream of Plastic Ono, and more of an impeccably produced, easy to love landmark from John Lennon! The title track, beautiful as it is, is so heavily ingrained into rock & roll myth making machine that it's become too easy to overlook how great most of the songs on the album are. It must be the most consistent of John's LPs post-Beatles, and it's just about as essential as they come. Co-produced by Phil Spector, yet it's often not as grandly orchestrated as a Wall Of Sound effort, and well tailored to Lennon's songs. Includes "Give Me Some Truth", "Oh My Love", "How Do You Sleep?", "Imagine", "Crippled Inside", "Jealous Guy" and "I Don't Want To Be A Soldier". LP, Vinyl record album

Wynton Marsalis' second date for Columbia Records, and an album that already has him stretching out from the first! Unlike before, when Wynton was given a few older players to help establish his sound, the group here is all Marsalis' own – with brother Branford on tenor and soprano sax, Kenny Kirkland on piano, Jeff Watts on drums, and either Phil Bowler or Ray Drummond on bass. Tracks are a mix of originals, and well-chosen modern moments from years past – played with a mix of soulful colors and more angular sounds, almost in the manner of VSOP from a few years before.

The set was recorded in Chicago with some key contributions from John Calvin on alto, Johnny Board on tenor, and Matt Guitar Murphy on guitar – all players who really bring a lot to the set, and sometimes mix in some jazz undercurrents that expand the music nicely. One of the tighter, more polished sets we've ever heard from Slim – but in a good way – and titles include "Pigalle Love", "Four Walls", "Lonesome", "Cold Blooded Woman", "True Love", and "I'll Just Keep On Singing The Blues".

Laura Nyro's first album ever – originally issued by Verve/Forecast in the mid 60s, but brought back out on the market by Columbia, during the height of Nyro's early 70s fame for the label! Even at this early point, Nyro sounds wonderful – a fair bit more soulful than most other female pop singers of her time – with a fully-fleshed out approach to the vocals that's mature and sensitive, and almost a bit more confident at times than in later years. Arrangements are by Herb Bernstein, and almost have the same sort of sunny feel as The 5th Dimension in their famous covers of Nyro's tunes – again with more soul than we might have expected for the time. Titles include "Lazy Susan", "Stoney End", "Flim Flam Man", "Buy & Sell", "He's A Runner", "Billy's Blues", and "Wedding Bell Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

PersuadersBest Thing That Ever Happend To Me ... LP
Atco, 1974. Very Good ... $1.99
One of the best things to ever happen to The Persuaders – a wonderfully rich album that has the group still sparkling strongly, long after their early hits! The harmonies are wonderful – very much on par with the bigger names at Philly International at the time – and recorded with sweet Sigma Sound production, and arrangements by Tony (not Thom) Bell that are a perfect blend of sweet and soulful – strings at some points, but a bassy bottom at others – so that the group manage to hit some even more righteous moments than before. Tunes are great, too – with some killer originals by Phil Hurtt – and the whole set's a no-filler gem that's kept us coming back for years! Titles include "Some Guys Have All The Luck", "Hold On (Just A Little Bit Longer)", "All Strung Out On You", "Stay With Me", "That's The Way She Is", and "We're Just Trying To Make It".

Louis BellsonSkin Deep ... LP
Verve, Early 50s. Good ... $0.99
Louis grooves it nice and hard in this excellent session from his early 50s Verve years – a mixed set of small group and large group numbers, all of them pretty darn tasty! The record kicks off with the tremendous "Skin Deep" title cut – a large group number that features Louis really going to town in an extended drum solo that must be one of the longest ever recorded during the period – maybe even the "Moby Dick" of its time! Other titles include "Loris", "Copasetic", "Claxton Hall Swing", and "Phalanges" – and players include Don Elliott, Ralph Martin, and Joe Puma in the small group – plus a host of Verve regulars in the large one!

Capitol, 1969. Very Good- ... $4.99
One of Glen's last super-huge albums of the 60s – featuring the sublime Jimmy Webb-penned "Galveston", a track that must have been written for Glen's unique vocal style! The album also includes the hit "Where's The Playground, Susie?" – plus the tracks "Today", "If this Is Love", "Gotta Have Tenderness", "Time", and "Oh What A Woman". Darker than before – in a great way! LP, Vinyl record album

I RibelliI Ribelli ... LP
Contempo (Italy), 1968. Near Mint- (reissue)... $19.99
A very groovy group from the Italian scene of the 60s – one that clearly draw a lot of inspiration from both American soul and the garage underground – which is then fused into this really unique Italian language style of its own! There's plenty of fuzz on the guitars, and lots of organ lines in the quintet too – but the vocal phrasing and some of the rhythms show a love of Memphis and Muscle Shoals, which makes for a really great surprise – and also gives some of these tunes a really universal sort of appeal! The set features groovy covers of "Tell Mama", "Make Your Own Sweet Music", "Get Ready", and "You Keep Me Hanging On" – plus the titles "Un Posto Al Sole", "Pugni Chiusi", and "Nel Sole Nel Vento Nel Sorriso E Nel Pianto".

Patti LaBelleBe Yourself ... LP
MCA, 1989. Sealed ... $2.99
A hit set from the end of the 80s – one that showed Patti still going strong in her third decade in soul music! The set's got a style that's decidedly more modern than some of the classic work we know from Patti – but her vocals are still very strongly in place, and if anything, the overall presentation of the album has her strutting her stuff as a diva even more strongly than before. Titles include "Yo Mister", "I Can't Complain", "If You Asked Me To", "I'm Scared Of You", "Can't Bring Me Down", "Need A Little Faith", and "I Can Fly". LP, Vinyl record album

Don SebeskyThree Works For Jazz Soloists & Symphony Orchestra (Birds & Bella In B Flat/Rite Of Spring/Sebastian's Theme) (Original Master Recording) ... LP
Mobile Fidelity/Gryphon, 1979. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
A serious later session from Don Sebesky – one that shows that he's still capable of plenty of darkness in his music, even after scoring some smoother sets in the 70s! The album's definitely got something of a "jazz orchestra" feel – with a full orchestra that initiates the proceedings, and sets the scene with a low-toned, rumbling sort of style – before the album then opens up into some much more jazz solo-based work that has a much more redemptive feel! Players include Alex Foster on tenor, Jon Faddis on trumpet, Gordon Beck on piano, Richard Davis on guitar, and Joe Beck on guitar – all of whom get some nice space to state their cases as the album rolls on – on three long tracks that include "Bird & Bela In B", "Rite Of Spring", and "Sebastian's Tune".
