Beverly KenneyBeverly Kenny Sings With Jimmy Jones & The Basie-ites ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $14.99
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 KennyCome Swing With Me ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $9.99
Early work by singer Beverly Kenny – a great 50s jazz vocalist who never got her due, but who managed to make some pretty fine records at the time! This album's one of them, and features backings from Ralph Burns – not as dark and moody as some of his other work of the 50s, and in a lightly, sprightly swinging style that really works well for Bev – often with a nice gentle swing that works well with the jazz modes of her vocals. Titles include "If I Were A Bell", "This Can't Be Love", "Give Me The Simple Life", "You Make Me Feel So Young", and "You Go To My Head". CD

Roost/Warner (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet and mellow vocal work from Bev Kenny – a sophisticated jazz singer who only cut a few albums back in the 50s and 60s! The set's a strong one – and has Bev singing easily with the Johnny Smith group – nothing fancy, but quite nice, and with a warm and intimate feel that has made the set a favorite of jazz vocal collectors for years – thanks especially to Johnny Smith's great guitar work too! Titles include "Looking For A Boy", "Destination Moon", "Tis Autumn", "Almost Like Being In Love", "Snuggled On Your Shoulder", and "Moe's Blues". CD

Anita BakerSongstress ... CD
Beverly Glen/Elektra, 1983. Used ... $2.99
From the female singer in the obscure group Chapter 8, Anita went onto become one of the biggest selling soul music acts during the 80s – and this album's her first effort as a solo act. The record's a smooth sophisticated batch of soul tunes, with lots of nice jazzy touches, and a classy sound that was quite refreshing in the face of some of the overly-synthesized soul work of the time. Patrick Moten produced and wrote most of the cuts – but it's Anita's deep vocals that make the record work so well. Titles include "You're The Best Thing Yet", "Feel The Need", "No More Tears", "Will You Be Mine", and "Do You Believe Me". CD

Beverly Hills, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A mix of dramatic and western themes – written and conducted by Morricone's frequent partner, Bruno Nicolai. The bulk of the soundtrack is pretty spare and tense, but there's a few numbers that are more driving – plus a few others that use some nice odd effects. Titles include "Nits Make Lice", "Main Theme From Land Raiders", "The Only Good Indian", "Gringo Bounty", and "Retribution: Code of The Apache". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousOne-Der-Ful Collection – One-Der-Ful Records ... CD
One Der Ful/Secret Stash, Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An unassuming cover, but a set that's got a really colorful batch of rare Chicago soul – including a number of never-issued tracks from the legendary One-Der-Ful Records! The label was one of the true indie greats in Chicago back in the 60s – almost as much a force for local soul as bigger imprints like Chess, Okeh, and Brunswick – and home to an equally great array of artists – including a few who'd later hit big on different labels! The work here is all the handiwork of the Leaner brothers, who not only recorded most of the cuts here – but also helped distribute One-Der-Ful and a host of other midwestern indies – which really gave them a great ear for the best sounds coming from the underground, and the new trends that were breaking big way before the rest of the country picked them up. And although there have been other collections of One-Der-Ful material before, this one may well be the most thoughtful – from the detailed notes on the label and each artist, to the research that uncovered never-issued tracks that include "Happy Times" by Beverly Shaffer, "Enjoy Yourself" by The Five Du-Tones, "I'm Guilty" by Liz Lands, "Thank You Love" by Otis Clay, "Now That You're Gone" by McKinley Mitchell, "Meet Me Halfway" by Beverly Shaffer, "Take Me To Your Leader" by The Sharpees, "When You Get That Feeling" by The Five Du-Tones, "Got To Find A Way (alt)" by Otis Clay, "Seventh Hour" by Liz Lands, and "Here Comes My Baby" by Mary Silvers. The set features lots more great cuts too – including "Who Is She" by Lucky Laws, "The Prettiest Girl" by Joe & Mack, "The Sock" by The Sharpees, "All For You" by the Admirations, and "The Man Of The Town" by Jay Jordan.

John FaheyOf Rivers & Religion/After The Ball ... CD
Reprise/BGO (UK), 1972/1973. New Copy ... $10.99
A pair of wonderful albums from the great John Fahey – back to back on a single CD! First up is Rivers & Religion – a really unique album by John Fahey – issued during a short stretch of initial mainstream approval, and a brief time of recording for Warner Brothers! Some of the album's quite different than the spare, solo Fahey you might know – and mixes his legendary guitar work with more elaborate elements than usual – additional instrumentation that includes bass, banjo, clarinet, piano, trombone, and fiddle – but all used at a level that really supports John's presence, not occludes it. Other tracks return to spare acoustic steel string guitar – creating an evocative balance that's mighty nice. Titles include "Funeral Song For Mississippi John Hurt", "Texas & Pacific Blues", "Dixie Pig Bar B Q Blues", "Lord Have Mercy Song", and "Deep River". After The Ball is a set with a disco ball on the cover, but a record that fits right in with the best early 20th century aesthetic in the work of John Fahey – particularly his way of reiimagining older musical traditions! There's a bit of added instrumentation on the record – two tracks that have some slight trad jazz flourishes – but overall, the album's mostly a solo effort with loads of wonderful guitar work from John – still as creative and as complicated as in his best recordings for Takoma! Other added instrumentation sometimes expands the sound with mandolin or banjo, but again in very sensitive ways – and titles include "Bucktown Stomp", "Om Shanthi Norris", "Beverly", and "Horses".

Don Gardner QuintetRhythm & Blues Dance Party ... LP
Fonet (UK), 1965. Near Mint- (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A blazing live set from The Don Gardner Quintet – recorded live a Stockholm's Dans In in August of 1965 – and a pretty great mix of drums and organ-heavy jazz and the Rhythm & Blues Dance Party promised by the titles! The group is fantastic – with Gardner holding down on the drums and Dee Dee Ford really standout out strongly on organ – and the two also contribute some vocals. Other players include Bill Leslie and Jimmy Ricks on saxes and Nat Stokes on guitar. Guest singer Beverly Glenn contributes some great, almost show-stealing soul vocals on "Shotgun" and "Heatwave", and other numbers include "Walkin'", "I Don't Want To Cry", "Watermelon Man", "Shiny Stockings", "Julep". "I Don't Need You Anymore" and "Last Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

One of two classic live albums that Maze cut during the 80s – even more proof that the Maze style of soul music was not only thriving, but succeeding strongly outside the studio, and regardless of airplay and album sales! The general groove is very similar to the band's classic work from the late 70s – with tight modern soul grooves, all graced by the magnificent vocals of Frankie Beverly, one of the generations best singers! Includes the cuts "Happy Feelins", "We Are One", "Back In Stride", "Freedom", "I Wanna Be With You", "When You Love Someone", and "Running Away". LP, Vinyl record album

MazeLive In New Orleans/Live In Los Angeles ... CD
Capitol/Robinsongs (UK), 1981/1986. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
A pair of classic live albums from Frankie Beverly & Maze – Live In New Orleans from 1981, and Live In Los Angeles from 1986 – originally 2LP sets, perfectly paired here as a 2CD set! First up is Live New Orleans, in which the band grooves 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. Live In Los Angeles was issued a half decade later cut during the 80s – and is even more proof that the Maze style of soul music was not only thriving, but succeeding strongly outside the studio, regardless of air play and album sales! The general groove is very similar to the band's classic work from the late 70s – with tight modern soul grooves, all graced by the magnificent vocals of Frankie Beverly, one of the generations best singers! Includes the cuts "Happy Feelins", "We Are One", "Back In Stride", "Freedom", "I Wanna Be With You", "When You Love Someone", and "Running Away". CD

MazeSilky Soul/Back To Basics (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Robinsongs (UK), 1989/1993. New Copy 2 CDs ... $9.99
A pair of later Maze albums – back to back in a single set, and with bonus tracks too! First up is Silky Soul – a late 80s album, but one that has the smooth soul genius very much at the top of his game! Frankie's work from the 70s inspired countless imitators in the next decade – but after so many other male singers trying to cop his game, Beverly can still do it better than the rest – with this easygoing, effortless style that's never commercial or cheesy – and which continues to raise the bar for sophisticated soul! Grooves are mostly in that perfect midtempo stepping style that seems to work best for Frankie – and the overall instrumentation and production are far more timeless than some of the other big records of the period – with a style that places the set very strongly in the best Maze tradition. Titles include "Can't Get Over You", "Silky Soul", "Just Us", "Love's On The Run", "Mandela", and "Songs Of Love". CD features bonus tracks – "Africa", "Mandela (radio edit)", and "Love's On The Run (rmx)". Next up is Back To Basics – a really well-titled set from Frankie Beverly & Maze – as the album takes the group right back to the mellow-stepping sound that first made them great back in the 70s! Production's a bit more updated, but still very laidback – and there's a smoothly-grooving glow to the record we totally love – a perfect format for Frankie's always-amazing vocals, updated just slightly for the 90s. The production values are never too polished, and the songwriting is still great – on titles that include "Love Is", "the Morning After", "Laid Back Girl", 'What Goes Up", "In Time", "All Night Long", "Don't Wanna Lose Your Love", and "Twilight". CD features bonus tracks – "Laid Back Girl (edit)", "What Goes Up (radio)", and "What Goes Up (smooth mix)". CD

Blue Note, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $33.99
An excellent Hank Mobley session – with an unusual twist that takes it past his earlier work! The lineup's great all the way through – with Woody Shaw on trumpet, George Benson on guitar, and Billy Higgins on drums – and the addition of Benson's guitar gives the tracks a groovily swinging edge that really makes them dance nicely! The set's got 4 originals – "Good Pickins", "Up Over & Out", "Beverly", and "Lookin East" – and 2 soul covers – "Reach Out" and "Goin' Out Of My Head" – and Mobley never misses a beat. Mobley was so great during this period, and we always mourn the fact that he hardly recorded much afterward! LP, Vinyl record album

PrinceLotus Flow3r/MPLSound (2LPs – with bonus 2CDs) ... LP
NPG/Because (France), 2009. New Copy 2LP & 2CD ... $26.99
A great later moment from Prince – music that's maybe a bit of a change from the earliest days, but which also features a nice return to his songwriting strength of that period too! Some of the work here is heavy on long-drawn guitar parts – almost fusion in their complexity, but nicely laidback – and definitely served up with the sense of soul that makes you know you're in the company of the great one from the Twin Cities – a sense that's furthered by some of the more straight-up funky tunes, which have even heavier hooks. The second half of the set features the MPLSound album – which is even more soul-based overall, and contains some great overlooked gems – and titles on both sets include "Boom", "From The Lotus", "Wall Of Berlin", "77 Beverly Park", "Love Like Jazz", "Dreamer", "Feel Good Feel Better Feel Wonderful", "Chocolate Box", "Valentina", "Better With Me", "U'Re Gonna C Me", "Another Like Me", and "No More Candy 4 U".

The style here is tight 80s groove at its best – lots of keyboards and basslines driving the tunes right from the start, and a sound that's pretty lean overall – and never too overproduced or slick! Fonzi keeps things cool throughout – sliding into the vocals, but really letting the groove take hold first – and there's some occasional little electro touches that keep things interesting, without ever sounding like cheap gimmicks. Titles include "The Leader", "There Goes My Heart", "Sha N Da (Happy Love Song)", "Beverly", "Be My Baby", "Perfect Lover", and "Sayin Goodbye". CD

Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
No boy trouble here – as the music's so great, you'll hardly miss the males – because this cool collection of 60s gems from Hollywood producer Gary Paxton is totally outta site all the way through! Along with folks like Brian Wilson and Jack Nietszche, Paxton was one of the key studio geniuses on the LA scene in the 60s – with a great ear for putting together tunes that are tight, groovy, and very catchy – yet which are also filled with lots of offbeat twists and turns, and some pretty wonderful themes as well! The music here spans a nice spectrum – from girl group pop, to rawer rockers, female soul, and some numbers that mark that special moment when folks like Gary were helping to unfurl the Sunshine Pop sound that would then lead to a huge amount of west coast changes to come. The package is great – 26 tracks, with detailed notes and great sound – and titles that include "Boy Trouble" by The Revlons, "Losin Control" by The Fashionettes, "Big City Guy" by Mary Saxton, "Would She Do That For You" by Mary Saenz, "They Say Big Girls Don't Cry" by Beverly Williams, "I'll Know Better" by Sandi Shore, "Plain Simple Ordinary Wonderful Guy" by Darlene McKinney, "Keep A Hold On Him" by Beatrice Kay, and "He's The Most" by Doris Webb.

Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
No need to be a connoisseur to enjoy this set – because the tunes here are all plenty darn groovy – rare soul numbers with an instant appeal to our ears, thanks to their freshness and the quality of the work! The package features rare singles and a bunch of previously unissued tracks from the vaults of the Kent/Modern labels – most recorded at the end of the 60s, in a range of soulful styles! Some numbers have a sweeter feel, but many echo the headier sounds of the times – bringing in some funkier or psychedelic soul influences, even when the themes might be a bit more conventional, or the grooves a bit more mellow. As always with Kent, the package features loads of notes on the music – enough to help even a novice become a connoisseur after a few listenings – and the CD features 24 titles that include "Cut Me Loose" by Gene Taylor, "Beverly" by Billy Watkins, "If I'd Lose You" by Jackie Day, "That Righteous Feeling" by Marvin Phillips & The Spinners, "My Name Is Misery" by Al King, "I've Gotta Get You Back" by Mary Love, "I'm Guilty" by Vernon Garrett, "Can't Count The Days" by Jeb Stuart, "Baby Baby Baby" by Leon Peterson, "The Ta Ta Song" by Little Henry & The Shamrocks, and "It's OK" by Esther Williams.

VariousMainstream Modern Soul – 1969 to 1976 ... CD
Kent/Mainstream (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 18.99
A huge array of soul tracks from the Mainstream label – an imprint that was probably best known for its jazz work of the early 70s, and as the launching pad for a few key rock groups – but one who also cut some killer soul tracks in the best New York and Philly styles of the period! Mainstream only ever issued most of its soul material as singles – 45s issued on their own label, and under the IX Chains, Brown Dog, and New Moon imprints too – spread out in an array of under-circulated, poorly-distributed releases that never fully got their due at the time – partly because much of the music was years ahead of its time! There's a groove here that reminds us of the hippest sounds from bigger labels – including Philly International or All-Platinum – with a similar blend of sweetness, honest vocal performances, and some top-shelf studio work that gives the lyrics a hell of an instrumental push, but all without ever sounding slick or commercial. The package is a much-needed look at this scattered legacy – and brings together 24 rare cuts that include "These Memories" by Almeta Lattimore, "I'm The One Who Loves You" by JG Lewis, "Come Back (part 1)" by The Fantastic Puzzles, "I Can't Give You Up" by Linda Perry, "It Ain't Like It Used To Be" by Randolph Brown & Company, "No Rebate On Love" by The Dramatics, "You're A Friend Of Mine" by Words Of Wisdom, "Satisfy My Woman" by Calvin Arnold, "Plain Out Of Luck" by Nia Johnson, "We're Not Too Young To Fall In Love" by Jackey Beavers Show, "Let The People Talk" by The Steptones, "To Whom It May Concern" by Ellerine Harding, "It's So Real" by McArthur, "Stop & Think A Minute" by Charles Beverly, and "That's The Way She Is" by Bobby Earl Williams.

A mighty nice collection of Northern Soul gems – all pulled from the vaults of Columbia, CBS, Epic, Okeh, RCA, and related labels – and stuffed together in a package that's a hell of a bargain for all these rare tracks! And when we say "stuffed", we don't mean that the tracks are crammed thoughtlessly together – because there's a really wonderful sense of timing to the whole thing – a groove that starts out strong, and keeps going long! There's also a nicely updated feel to the selections, too – lots of tracks you wouldn't have found on a 60s soul collection 20 years back – partly because the cuts have only been uncovered in recent years, or because they fit well into the ever-evolving understanding of Northern Soul. 61 tracks in all – and titles include "Paris Blues" by Tony Middleton, "Temptation Is Calling My Name" by Lee David, "Moonlight Music & You" by Laura Greene, "I'm Not Ready" by Ujima, "Everybody's Going To The Love-In" by Bob Brady & The Con-Chords, "I'll Always Need You" by Dean Courtney, "That's What I Want To Know" by James Carr, "I Don't Want To Talk About It" by Nancy Ames, "He's Coming Home" by Beverly Ann, "I Still Love You" by Seven Souls, and "Born A Loser" by Don Ray.

VariousOld Town & Barry Soul Survey ... CD
Old Town/Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
A treasure trove of 60s soul from New York – rare singles from the Old Town and Barry labels, most of which are making their debut here on CD! Both companies were owned by producer Hy Weiss – and together, the tunes on the set really trace an evolution in soul styles at the time. Old Town was probably best known for its mellow work by singer Arthur Prysock, and its vocal group hits at the beginning of the 60s – but the label was also a key force in the uptown soul style of the time, and really brought a great degree of class to the genre without losing the punch of the sound. Barry was a bit more of an indie singles outfit – and worked in modes that included a bit more socking soul and northern numbers – often done with the same sort of care as Old Town, but a bit more freewheeling overall. The package features full histories on both labels and their artists – and a 26 track set list that includes "If I Had Known" by Freddie Houston, "Could This Be Love" by Rosco & Barbara, "Souvenirs Of A Heartbreak" by Thelma Jones, "You Can't Trust Your Best Friend" by Donald Height, "Let Your Love Shine" by Lester Young, "Think Smart" by The Fiestas, "Hold It Baby" by King Ernest, "Lonely Man" by John Standberry Jr, "Things Have More Meaning Now" by Peggy Scott, "Stop & Take Another Look" by The Divine Men, "Slowly I Turn" by Billy Profit, "I Gotta Have Love Too" by Bobby Long & The Dealers, "Left Out" by Jesse Johnson, and "Say It With Feeling" by Beverly McKay.

Excellent work from Frankie Beverly and Maze! The record is one of the group's best, and has a wonderful mellow groove that's totally on the money on nearly every cut – a mature, sophisticated approach to soul that really made Maze a standout act at the end of the 70s! There's a slight jazzy vibe running through most of the record, supported with warmly flowing grooves, impeccable songwriting, and great vocals from Frankie all the way through. Titles include the excellent track "Golden Time Of Day", one of those slinky modern soul midtempo numbers that were one of the best things about the late 70s soul years – plus the tunes "I Need You", "I Wish You Well", and "Travelin Man". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)
