Beverly KenneyBeverly Kenney Vol 4 – Live At Birdland (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
SSJ (Japan), 1956/1960. New Copy ... $24.99
Great work from Beverly Kenney – two rare broadcast performances that add plenty to her too-small catalog of recordings! The lady's a hell of a singer from the postwar years in which artists like Ella Fitzgerald and Anita O'Day were issuing countless albums, year after year – one whose talents are equally great, but who hardly ever got her due on record! Beverly's few albums from the time are highly-prized jazz treasures, which have been reissued often over the years – and that interest has brought to light some other rare material like this, from a brief time when Kenney was getting some time in the limelight. The first half of the set features a sweet radio performance from 1956, recorded by NBC and featuring the great Gildo Mahones on piano – working with Tommy Potter on bass and Ron Jefferson on drums – a very hip trio who really bring a lot of bite to the music! The second half of the set features a very cool date from 1960 – a Kenney appearance on the Playboy's Penthouse TV show, along with some cool conversation with Hugh Hefner. Titles include "Makin Whoopee", "Mountain Greenery", "In The Wee Small Hours", "Everything Happens To Me", and "Violets For Your Furs". Also includes a whole Beverly Kenney segment of the All Star Parade of Bands on NBC. CD

Beverly KenneyLonely & Blue (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
SSJ (Japan), 1952. New Copy ... $22.99
Some of the earliest work ever recorded by vocalist Beverly Kenny – early 50s sides done before her rise to fame on Roost and Decca, and a much-needed addition to her too-short career! The tracks were originally part of transcription discs done for radio stations, and they've got a surprisingly full, professional feel – not like the quieter material showcased on SSJ's other Kenny collection, Snuggled On Your Shoulder – but recorded with jazzzy backings from arranger Eddie Safranski! The lineup includes tenor, alto, baritone, and trumpet – plus piano by either Dick Hyman and Moe Wexler, and guitar from Mundell Lowe – all to perfectly set the blue mood that Beverly's going for with her vocals. Many of the tracks here are nicely less familiar, and not overdone standards – and titles include "That Pyramid Jazz", "Long Lean & Lanky", "It's A Mean Old World", "Too Bad", "The Stars The Night The Moon", "Yours Sincerely", and "Let's Try It Again".

Beverly KenneyWhat Is There To Say? (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
SSJ (Japan), 1954/1958. New Copy ... $24.99
Rare work from 50s vocalist Beverly Kenney – a selection of material that stands nicely alongside her commercially-released albums of the time! Kenney first burst on the scene with a flourish, then recorded only briefly before her all-too-soon death in 1960 – so the unreleased gems here really do a lot towards filling in her small catalog of music – and offer up some surprising slices of work pulled from TV and radio performances in 1954 and 1958. Backing is by a group with Roland Hanna on piano and Vinnie Burke on bass on some tracks – and by The Skitch Henderson Orchestra on others – and titles include the Kenney originals "I Hate Rock & Roll" and "I Don't Believe In Love" – the latter of which is sung by Diane Hubka, in a recent performance added to this package. Other vintage songs include "The More I See You", "Swing & Sway", "Charleston Fling", "I'm Ready For The Show", "Tappin Out A Merry Beat", and "What Is There To Say" – plus a short interview with Beverly.

✨✧ Beverly GlennCopeland Keyboard Fantasies ... LP
Invisible City Editions (Canada), 1986. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A weird little record that's a bit hard to peg – not really jazz, but also not really anything else as well – kind of it its own special category that fits the "keyboard fantasies" title! Beverly Glenn-Copeland plays Yamaha and Roland keyboards, with a definite 80s sound – but also a bit more warmth than you might expect – on these spare, tuneful tracks that often feature a bit of her own vocals, but layered in ways that still mostly seem to have the keyboards in the lead. The whole thing's maybe on the sweeter side of Suzanne Ciani's spectrum – but about as unique as and Beverly's own thing too. Titles include "Slow Dance", "Ever New", "Winter Astral", "Let Us Dance", and "Sunset Village". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Beverly KenneyBeverly Kenny Sings With Jimmy Jones & The Basie-ites ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Bev Kenny sounds surprisingly great in this Basie-styled setting – one that has Jimmy Jones handling the keys instead of the Count – with added support from players who include Joe Newman on trumpet, Frank Wess on tenor and flute, and Freddie Green on guitar! Like most of Kenny's sessions of the 50s, there's a quality here that really goes beyond standard vocal jazz – a real feel for the material, and a relaxed command of the small combo setting that must have made Beverly a hell of an act to catch in the clubs. Her natural sweetness is a nice contrast to the deeper tones of the Basie players – and titles include "I Never Has Seen Snow", "The More I See You", "The Charm Of You", "My Kind Of Love", "Who Cares What People Say", and "Can't Get Out Of This Mood".

Beverly Glen, 1984. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of Bobby's biggest albums of the 80s – and a smooth soulful set that features some nice guest work from the likes of George Benson, Patti Labelle, and Wilton Felder. We're a bit more partial to Bobby's earlier work, but his voice is always a treasure, with a raspy 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". LP, Vinyl record album

Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A massive amount of great groovers from the Groove Records subsidiary of RCA in the 50s – home to a hotbed of R&B, early soul, and other killer cuts from the postwar underground of the 45 rpm single! Nobody's ever dug so deeply into the Groove catalog before – and Bear Family have done a wonderful job of unearthing rare nuggets we've never heard before, and mixing them with other Groove gems that are still mostly on the obscure side of the 50s R&B spectrum – all to make a killer assortment that has plenty of greatness to offer, even if you've already got lots of jump blues and R&B in your collection! The music is as lively as the look of the package – and the booklet features over 60 pages of track by track notes on the selections – 35 titles that include "Charmaine" by Frank Brunson, "Big Foot Mammy" by Paul Williams, "Where Is Joe" by Emmett Hobson, "Doo Ba Dee" by Maymie Watts, "Shake Till I'm Shook" by Beverly Wright, "Love Ya Like Crazy" by Chris Powell & The Blue Flames, "A Little Boy's Dream" by George Benson, "Bye By Baby" by Clayton Love, "Hoodoo" by Roy Gaines, "Right Now" by Zilla Mays, and "My Head Goes Round" by Oscar Black.

Randy BrownIntimately ... LP
Parachute/Casablanca, 1979. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Excellent work from Randy Brown – a great singer with a massive talent for being both smooth and deep at the same time, something we'd reserve for a rare few, like Frankie Beverly or Teddy Pendergrass during their best periods. This album featuers Randy singing tracks written by Homer Banks and Chuck Brooks – who also produced the album – and the tunes are great little love songs with compelling but uncomplicated structures, in a manner that's similar to mid 70s work by Lou Courtney or Ronnie McNeir. The whole album's pretty darn solid all the way through – and titles include "Use It", "I Wanna Baby You", "I Thought of You Today", "I Was Blessed (The Day I Found You)", and "It Scares Me So".

"Time Is On My Side" is an early one from Frankie Beverly & Maze – a nice little midtempo number with a slightly funky groove that's very nice! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ LaMont JohnsonSun, Moon, & Stars ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
A nicely rough-edged blend of spiritual sounds and funky jazz – and definitely one of the more offbeat Mainstream jazz recordings of the early 70s! Keyboardist LaMont Johnson plays a range of different keyboards on the set – but in a way that's always nicely integrated with the larger group – which is heavy on horns, and moves in a mix of funky styles and more modal musings! Other players include the great Charles Owen on tenor, soprano sax, and flute – plus Yusef Rahman on trombone, Sal Marquez on trumpet, Reggie Johnson on bass, and Mike Deasy and Art Johnson on guitars. There's a loosely skittish rhythm to the album that's mighty titles – and titles include the great "M'Bassa" – which has a hard groove that wouldn't sound out of place on a Strata East recording – plus "Andromeda", "Medusa's Meanderings", and "That's Not the Way To Do It Beverly".

MazeLive In New Orleans ... LP
Capitol, 1981. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $5.99
It's always a sign of how huge Frankie Beverly was during the 80s that Capitol let him cut not one, but two double live albums during the early part of the decade. This one, his first, has the band grooving wonderfully before a crowd going mad in the Crescent City! The songs retain all the charm of the studio renditions – and are stretched out a bit more in the live setting, with some really nice interplay with the crowd. The set is heavy with early Maze classics – including "Southern Girl", "Look At California", "Before I Let Go". "We Need Love To Love", "The Look In Your Eyes" the big sample track "Joy & Pain" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ MazeMaze ... CD
Capitol/Right Stuff, 1977. Used ... $5.99
An amazing debut album from Frankie Beverly and Maze – as perfect as the group would ever sound, with an impeccable approach to both funk and ballads that put them at the top of the stack immediately! Of course, Frankie had been knocking around in indie soul obscurity for a number of years before the album came out – which is why he's so perfectly formed at the start. And like Maurice White, another soul star who spent many years woodshedding all over the place before hitting the majors, Frankie has the talent to lead the group to a unique place in the star system of soul – a unique orbit that was important to mellow soul as Earth Wind & Fire's was to funk. The record features some unbelievably amazing numbers, gems that shine again year after year, no matter where you hear them – on an AM radio, a crusty old tape in a car stereo, or bursting out of the grooves of this beautiful LP. Great ones include the sublime stepper "Happy Feelings", the smooth mellow groover "While I'm Alone", and the tightly compressed "Look At California". CD

Equally great, though, is "I Want To Thank You", a smooth mellow number with the kind of slinky sound that Frankie Beverly always did so well! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Terry MelcherTerry Melcher ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... About June 28, 2017 (delayed)
If Charles Manson had got him instead of Sharon Tate, Terry Melcher would have never given us this wonderful record – so we're tipping our hat to Charlie's mistake for this overlooked gem of the 70s! Despite a rich career in the background of the LA scene of the 60s and 70s, Melcher almost never appeared as a lead act on his own – which makes the record even more of a standout – and kind of a long-awaited musical moment, put together with help from Bruce Johnston on production and support from a wide variety of LA hipsters Melcher had been supporting himself over the years. Terry's got a great ear for songs here – picking hip works by a host of others, and contributing some of his own gems too – and singing them all with a style that's unique, and probably helped a lot by the studio, but which somehow really resonates with us too. Worth it alone for his cover of "These Days" – and other tracks include "Beverly Hills", "Arkansas", "Just A Season", "4th Time Around", and a medley of "Halls Of Justice/Positively 4th Street/Like A Rolling Stone".

Rhino Handmade, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP ... $31.99
An incredible set of Sunshine Pop gems – all pulled from the glory days of the Warner Brothers hipster years! The set does an amazing job of offering up obscure numbers by bigger names, and great work from obscure names – all pulled together with a real thought of the criss-crossing of songwriters, arrangers, and producers that made the scene so great! There's lots of wonderful post-folk, post-harmony pop on the collection – pulled together with incredible notes that really document the under-discovered genius of the period – a situation that's certainly due to be corrected by the 24 sparkling tunes in the set! Titles include "Candy Apple Cotton Candy" by Pat Shannon, "A Whole Lot Of Rainbows" by The Salt, "Love-In" by The Morning Glories, "Our Dream" by The Munx, "Take My Hand" by Lee Mallory, "No One Was There" by Gates Of Eden, "Someday Man" by The Monkees, "Tell Someone That You Love Them" by Dino Desi & Billy, "Summer Days Summer Nights" by Street Corner Society, "Discrepency" by Bonniwell Music Machine, "Scorpio Red" by Holy Mackerel, "Beverly Hills" by Uncle Sound, "Time To Love" by The Addrisi Brothers, "Silver & Sunshine" by The Looking Glass, "Happiness" by Anita Kerr Singers, and "For All That I Am" by The Tokens.

De-Lite/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $29.99
A slice of soul you might never expect – early work from the De-Lite label, a company better-known for their famous club hits of the late 70s – but starting out here with an amazing array of deep soul 45s! The music is a wonderful contrast to the disco and club of the label's fame – and showcases an immediate commitment to singers who could really knock it out of the park – with vocals that rival the sounds coming from southern labels like Stax, or some of the more famous productions on Atlantic – which is a huge surprise if you only know the De-Lite recordings by Kool & The Gang or The Kay-Gees! 25 tracks in all – all super-rare – and titles include "Keep Away" by The Appointments, "Look What You Done For Me" by Contributors Of Soul, "Oh Girl" by Johnny Washington, "Need You Girl" by Fred Cole, "I Wish It Would Rain" by Beverly Hammonds, "Say So" by La Jay Alexander, "Everlasting Love" by Johnny Washington, "I Saw You There" by The Appointments, "I Smell Trouble" by Johnny De'Vigne, "I'll Always Love You" by Felton Burks, "Send Her Back" by Sammy Taylor, "When A Woman Loves A Man" by Jean Battle, "Tender Loving Care" by Joe Kennedy, and "I Got To Get Close To You" by Yvonne Daniels.

BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... $29.99 32.99
John Morales has a wonderful talent for taking a funky track and making it sound even funkier – which he does beautifully here in this killer collection of old school tunes! Many of the numbers are vintage clubby soul from the late 70s and early 80s – and Morales has this great way of crystalizing all the best elements in the songs, and pulling them to the forefront – but all without ever ruining the integrity of the tracks that sounded so great in the first place! In other words, the work here isn't the imprint of some young DJ trying to overstate his presence – but a true music maestro who really knows what makes a club track great – a vibe that takes us back to the brilliant edits of the early NYC scene. All titles here are previously unreleased – and the massive 4CD set features titles that include Morales mixes of "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More Baby" by Barry White, "You Got Me Running" by Lenny Williams, "Mind On You" by Level 42, "Vertigo/Relight My Fire" by Dan Hartman, "Lovergirl" by Teen Marie, "Standing Right Here" by Mannix, "Love Is The Message" by MFSB, "Let The Music Play" by Barry White, "Don't Leave Me This Way" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Funkin For Jamaica" by Tom Browne, "All Night" by Katzuma, "Hi Tension" by Hi Tension, "Girl You Need A Change Of Mind" by Eddie Kendricks, "Before I Let Go" by Frankie Beverly, "Got To Be Real" by Cheryl Lynn, "Star Love" by Three Ounces Of Love", "You Stepped Into My Life" by Melba Moore, "Life Is A Song Worth Singing" by Teddy Pendergrass, "Walk Away From Love" by David Ruffin, "Life Goes On" by The Jones Girls, "This Time Baby" by Jackie Moore, "Turn Me Up" by Keith Barrow, "Circles" by Atlantic Starr, "Joy & Pain" by Maze, "Stay" by The Controllers, "Take Me Home" by Cher, and "Can't Live Without Your Love" by Tamiko Jones.

VariousMainstream Modern Soul 2 – 1969 to 1976 ... CD
Mainstream/Kent (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Fantastic soul from Mainstream Records – an imprint that's normally best-known for their work in the field of jazz, but a label that also cut some killer soul singles in the early 70s! Mainstream soul artists almost never got a chance to record a full-length album – so over the years, this soul legacy has been somewhat lost in the shifting sands of time (and shifting piles of funky 45s) – which makes this collection a much-needed resurrection of that material – especially when given the ultra-hip, extra-level presentation of the Kent label! The CD features 23 great tunes from these years – some of them in the modern soul mode promised in the title, lots more in kind of a hip funky soul approach – very early 70s New York, with righteous themes mixed with more familiar soul styles – all set to impeccable instrumentation. Titles include "Oh My Love" by Almeta Latimore, "Come Back With Your Love (part 1)" by Special Delivery, "Grass Ain't Greener" by Charles Beverly, "Love Bug" by Sugar Billy, "You'll Do It" by Calvin Arnold, "I'll Never Trust Love Again" by McArthur, "You've Got A Lot To Give" by Chocolate Syrup, "I'll Never Be The Same (part 1)" by Chapter Three, "I've Been Trying To Love You" by Lenny McDaniel & The Last Nikle, "Slow Down World" by Charles Colbert, "Everyone Has Someone" by Linda Perry, "Your Love Is Like A Rising Sun" by Steptones, "Let Her Know" by Bobby Earl Williams, "Please Don't Set Me Free" by Jeany Reynolds, and "Today Or Never" by Eleventh Commandment.

Expansion (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
A huge festival of 70s soul – not the big hits of the time, but a wealth of underground gemes that show us there's still plenty to discover in that magical decade! The artists here are all big, but the tunes are sometimes more obscure – lesser-known gems from familiar names – mixed with other rare singles, and presented together in this soaring wave of soul that's completely sublime! Many cuts have a warm modern soul groove, but there's also some funkier numbers too – and the package has all the care, class, and quality we've come to love from the Expansion label over the years. Titles include "Never Felt Love Before" by Felix Cavaliere, "Free & Easy" by Satyr, "Spoiled Like A Baby" by TSU Tornadoes, "Are We Ready For Love" by Patti Austin, "Can We Share It" by Rick Sheppard, "You're My Main Squeeze" by Crystal Motion, "Just Ask Me" by Bobby Thurston, "What's Your Name" by Leon Ware, "Takin My Time With You" by Maureen Bailey, "Funny How We Change Places" by Dede Schwartz, "You'll Never Be Sorry" by Gerald Sims, "We Got To Stick Together" by Beverly & Duane, "Caught Up In A Whirlwind" by Richard Stepp, "March Across The Land" by Linda Clifford, and "Temptation's Bout To Get Me" by Ed Robinson.

A deep look at the electronic music underground in the 60s, 70s, and 80s – not the academic theoreticians who were slaving away in university laboratories, but the more independent, freewheeling talents who were using the initial analogue moment to open up their own boundaries in time and space! The work ranges from unusual 60s instrumentals, through 70s hippie electronics, to some 80s recordings that might have been termed new age by the uninitiated – but which instead, all these years later, stand as some lost moments of cosmic expression! There's few folks we trust to lead us down a musical path as much as the guys at Soul Jazz – and this time, they've definitely taken us in the right direction – with cuts that include "Midnight" by Tim Blake, "Gang (For Rock Industry)" by JB Banfi, "To The Other Side Of The Sky" by Michael Garrison, "By Water" by Stratis, "Improvisation On A Concerto Generator" by Laurie Spiegel, "Starborn Suite (part 1)" by Steven Halpern, "Ceres Motion" by Mother Mallard's Portable Masterpiece Company, "As Above So Below" by Carl Matthews, "In The Beginning" by Michael Stearns, "Ever New" by Beverly Glenn-Copeland, "Variations VII Sur Le Theme Des Bene Gesserit" by Richard Pinhas, and "Ancient Stars" by Kevin Braheny.

An early showcase for the cool, compressed flute work of the young Herbie Mann – a style that created a great bridge to jazz for so many later players on the instrument! The Mann heard here isn't the overblown, soul-drenched Herbie of the 60s – but a player who's very careful with his tone and timing, yet still able to swing incredibly well! Herbie's solos are a masterpiece of economy – and set up strongly in a hip quartet that features some equally careful work from Joe Puma on guitar – plus Charles Andrus on bass and Harold Granowsky on drums. There's a number of strong original tunes on the set – numbers written with a bit of wit and angular finish – and titles include "Jasmin", "Woodchuck", "One Way Love", "Sorimao", "The Influential Mr Cohn", and "Beverly".

✨✧ Ray Parker JrFor Those Who Like To Groove – The Essential Ray Parker Jr & Raydio ... CD
Arista/Big Break (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
For those who like to groove, Ray Parker Jr is often the obvious choice – as the man's got a cool, classy style that helped redefine the role of the male singer in soul for a whole new generation – but also almost always finds a way to make things move! Parker began recording during the height of the disco years, but right from the start he was always looking forward to something new – in territory matched by contemporaries like Frankie Beverly or Teddy Pendergrass, which aimed for a modern soul style that was perfect for the maturing audience of the time – yet which still could come across with an undeniable hook and groove. And while Ray's hits are pretty well known, the many recorded a heck of a lot more great music – both as a solo act, and with his Raydio group too – a good deal of which is included on this set. Like other BBR collections, this one features a fair bit of mixes from singles alongside album cuts – and titles include "Jack & Jill", "A Woman Needs Love", "All In The Way You Get Down (12" rmx)", "Hot Stuff", "Is This A Love Song (single version)", "More Than One Way To Love A Woman (single)", "Two Places At The Same Time", "Honey I'm Rich", "Get Down", "Still In The Groove", "Betcha Can't Love Me Just Once", "Tonight's The Night", "Stay The Night", "After Midnite", "One Sided Love Affair", "Over You", "The People Next Door", "Ghostbusters (12" version)", "The Other Woman (12" vesion)", "Let Me Go (single)", "I Don't Think That Man Should Sleep Alone (12" version)", "Girls Are More Fun (single", and "Bad Boy".

VariousHot Shots Of Reggae (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $11.99
A set that's not only a classic collection of early Jamaican gems on Trojan Records – but one that also stands as a fantastic tribute to the studio genius of early reggae producer Leslie Kong! Kong had an ear that was crucial to the rocksteady scene at the end of the 60s – and here, you'll hear his impeccable choice of songs, singers, and musicians throughout – the kind of all-soul, rock-solid talents that helped push the world of Jamaican music from just being an American offshoot to really finding a voice of its own! The rhythms are fantastic – well-woven, but never muddy – and topped with vocals by solo singers and groups who represent some of the best of the scene. Titles include "Show Me The Way" by Delroy Wilson, "Freedom Street" by Ken Boothe, "Sweet Sensation" by The Melodians, "Monkey Man" by The Maytals, "Cotton Dandy" by Ansel Collins & The Beverlys All Stars, "So Much Love" by Joe White, "Simmer Down Quashie" by The Pioneers, "I'm The One" by Bruce Ruffin, and "There's A Fire" by The Gaylads. CD features 13 more bonus tracks, too – titles that include "Drums Of Freedom" by Ken Boothe, "High Voltage" by Ansel Collins, "Hoola Bulla" by The Slickers, "Gimme Gimme Gal" by The Mellotones, "Lick It Back" by The Clarendonians, "Don't Get Weary" by Carl Dawkins, and "Moon Dust" by Ansel Collins.
