P Funk All StarsLive At The Beverly Theater, In Hollywood ... CD
Westbound (UK), 1983. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A nice live snapshot of a later P Funk incarnation, circa 1983 – with players like Dennis Chambers and Michael Hampton aboard the mothership with Clinton's family of funk all stars! The rest of the crew includes includes stalwarts Bernie Worrell, Eddie Hazel, Blackbird McKnight, Maceo Parker, Mudbone Cooper and George Clinton working hard to extend their legendary style of live funk into the 80s. There's a slow build up of energy that's works well – kicking off slowly but surely with a laidback intro and band intro before busts open in a big way, and from there it's one exciting classic after another 'til the very end!

George RoseHollywood, Beverly Hills & Other Perversities – Pop Culture Of The 1970s & 1980s (hardcover) ... Book
Ten Speed Press, 2008. New Copy ... $2.99 30.00
Very cool photos from the 70s and 80s – taken by George Rose, who was staff photographer at the LA Times during this stretch, and also shooting a lot for Rolling Stone and Time too! Rose's eye is uncanny – both for candid moments and odd poses in a range of settings – and subjects here run from Jane Fonda, to Freddie Mercury, Grace Jones, Wendy O Williams, Henry Kissinger, Randy Newman, Princess Grace, Richard Pryor, Bill Cosby, Jack Nicholson, Tommy Lasorda, and countless other celebrities of the time – as well as shots of punk shows, disco culture, other paparazzi, and even female mud wrestling! Rose's photos perfectly capture the late 70s/early 80s era – and the book is 191 pages, oversize, hardcover, with mostly black and white images. Book

✨✧ Beverly KenneyBeverly Kenney Sings For Playboys ... CD
Decca/Universal (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare Decca album lead by the smoky vocals of Beverly Kenney – a really unique late 50s/early 60s jazz girl who once worked for the Dorsey brothers, the Count Basie Orchestra and others, and only ever cut a handful of albums under her own name! Sings for Playboys is an intimate, sultry batch of tunes that have a really unique feel thanks to the super spare accompaniment of just Ellis Larkins on piano and Joe Benjamin on bass. That approach does a great job of transforming your senses to the smoky, boozy after hours cabaret that must have been in mind when the recordings were conceived. The album only ever appeared briefly in the late 50s before now (possibly because of the unauthorized and quite obvious reference to Playboy Magazine in the title and in the cover photo) but it's sure great to see it reappear – they didn't make a lot records like this in the big band dominated recordings of the era! 12 tracks including "Do It Again", "A Woman's Intuition", "Mama, Do I Gotta?", "A Lover Like You", "A Summer Romance", "It's Magic", and more.

Chapter 8This Love's For Real ... LP
Beverly Glen, 1985. Very Good ... $4.99
An obscure later album from west coast soul group Chapter 8 – recorded after Anita Baker had left the group to move out on her own, but done for the mid 80s Beverly Glen indie, where Baker had also gotten her start as a solo act! The set's got a feel that's smooth and sophisticated – tighter even than the group's 70s album on Mercury – and most of the tracks focus on mellow modern and more adult-styled soul numbers that showcase the vocals of singers Valerie Pinkston and Gerald Lyles. Titles include "How Can I Get Next To You", "Don't Stop Loving Me", "How Is It Possible", "Love Loving You", "It's My Turn", and "Don't You Think It's Time". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bobby WomackPoet/Poet II ... CD
Beverly Glen/Abkco, 1982/1984. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

IjahmanAre We A Warrior ... LP
Mango, 1978. Very Good ... $9.99
A great lost roots albums from the underrated I Jah Man Levi. At the cusp of the 80s he appeared poised to achieve the level of dominance over the Jamaican scene like Burning Spear held in the early 70s, only to leave us with a few monumental recordings and then labor quietly for the rest of his career. Contrary to the style of most reggae LPs, this album features longer tracks – extended devotional roots numbers, crisply produced by Ijahman and Geoffrey Chung, mixed by Karl Pitterson. 5 numbers in all: "Are We A Warrior", "Moulding", "The Church", "Miss Beverly", and "Two Sides Of Love".

MazeSilky Soul/Back To Basics (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Robinsongs (UK), 1989/1993. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99
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

University Of Central Arkansas, 2015. New Copy ... $15.99
The stunning Southern Music Issue of Oxford American – an annual treat in which the southern-themed publication turns a very keen eye to sounds from a particular scene! This time around, the focus is on Georgia – a state that's got a stunningly huge musical legacy – as you'll read in articles on James Brown, Sharon Jones, Janell Monae, the Dust to Digital label, Little Richard, Beverly Guitar Watkins, Fiddlin John carson, Dve Prater, Ray Stevens, Fletcher Henderson, the Athens scene, the Allman Brothers, MC Shy D, Thomas A Dorsey, The Skillet Lickers, Johnny Mercer, Outkast, Atlanta soul, Gram Parsons, and even a special piece on Bline Willie McTell, penned by Peter Guaralnick!

John RenbournAttic Tapes ... CD
Riverboat, Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
Never-heard recordings from Brit folk legend John Renbourn – tapes that lay in an attic for many decades before discovery, but music that easily ranks with some of Renbourn's best albums for the Transatlantic label in the 60s! The music here isn't rough or unformed, and instead shows John to be an already-amazing guitarist, and a hell of a singer, too – at least on those tracks that feature his vocals, which is a smaller portion of the total. Renbourn's touch on the guitar is already quite unique – filled with that new sense of chromatic elements and complicated phrasing that made his work, and that of contemporary Bert Jansch, arguably more progressive than most of the American acoustic guitarists of the time. Two numbers feature vocals by a young Beverly Martyn, and a few titles are live. Titles include "Candyman", "Anji", "Blues Run The Game", "The Wildest Pig In Captivity", "Train Tune", "Beth's Blues", "Can't Keep From Crying", "Courting Blues", "Cocaine", "National Seven", and "Buffalo".

T-Bird (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $3.99
A sweet little compilation of obscure female honky tonk singles – songs in the genuine honky tonk style of stripped down guitar, steel, bass and drums – material cut for the Bullet, Sur-Speed and Star labels in the 60s! Red Wortham's Bullet & Sur-Speed labels might be best known for some underappreciated R&B in the 60s, but a bunch of honky tonk and rock & roll was cut for the label(s), too, and here's a fine female roster doing the country. True school 50s & 60s honky tonk music from ladies, at a time when few women were aloud to cut this kind of music at the major labels – weepers from from Penny Jay, Beverly Buff, Carol Johnson, Freda Burrell, Ricky Page and others. Titles include "Convict's Angel" by Penny Jay, "I'll Love You As A Friend"and more by Beverly Buff, "You've Lost Every Right" by Carol Johnson, "I'm A Sports Nut" by Freda Burrell, "Making A Fool Of Myself" by Ricky Page, "Find Out What You Want" by Christy Page and more. 22 tracks in all.

VariousCatch Action – The Sophisticated Boogie Funk Of Sheridan House Records (6LP box set) ... LP
Luv N' Haight, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 6LP ... $62.99 79.98
A stunning set of funky club tracks from Sheridan House Records – a later effort from Cali maestro Kent Harris – who'd previously given us some excellent soul singles in the 60s and 70s! The style here is less disco than it is an update of Harris' earlier soul music approach – served up with a similar emphasis on female singers, who get a really earnest, honest setting for their music – way more than just the usual disco diva modes! And the set's way more than just a compilation, too – as it's got these great notes, way more detailed than usual for Luv N Haight – which really tell the tale of the label, and the LA scene in the 70s as well. Features a huge amount of tracks – and titles include "Whip It On Me" by Deborah Foster, "Real Love" by Back To Back, "This Feeling Between Us" by Something Unique, "I'm Gonna Be Your Lover" by Jeanette Renee, "High School Love Affair" by Right Connection, "It Takes Money" by Deborah Foster, "Love Me" by Beverly Cason, "Tell Me How It Is" by Towana, "So Weak" by Tammy Hanson, "Sex" by Big Bundy, "It Takes Money" by Ty Karim, "Suspicion" by King James, "Keep On Doin Whatcha Doin" by Ty Karim & George Griffin, "Jungle Animal" by 2 Ana, and lots lots more! Very cool vinyl version – a special box set, with oversize book, and 6 albums in all! LP, Vinyl record album

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".

✨✧ VariousNorthern Soul – Keep The Faith – 61 Allniter Classics (3CD set) ... CD
Sony (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ VariousOne-Der-Ful Collection – One-Der-Ful Records ... CD
One Der Ful/Secret Stash, Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily 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.

Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... Temporarily 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.

Copacabana (Brazil), 1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
A lost set of live bossa nova tracks from the 60s – all recorded for the Copacabana label, in the same sort of ensemble bossa mode used for RGE at the time! The lesser-known Banzo Trio provides the core of the set – playing by themselves on a number of tracks, in a jazzy, piano-driven way – and other titles have different singers joining in – including Lita, Cecy, Jorge Eduardo, and Miriam Ribeiro – all of whom add their vocals to the Banzo groove! The mix of performers makes for a very fresh little set – and we really like the way the record steps between vocal and instrumental numbers – setting the scene for each new transformation as the album rolls on. Titles include "Garota Moderna" and "Gente" by Banzo Trio, "Terra De Ninguem" and "Menino Do Sertao" by Lita, "Ze Do Talarico" by Miriam Ribeiro, "Preciso Aprender A Ser So" and "Disa" by Jorge Nery, "Eu So" by Cecy, "Timbo" by Jorge Eduardo, and "Se Fosse Com Voce" by Carlos Sodre.

Blue Note (UK), 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
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! CD

Cherry Red/Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest sets of female vocal jazz we've ever heard – a package that goes way past the overdone torch song cliches or the bluer-toned weepies – and reminds us that at the heart of the matter, all the best singers from the time still had an undeniably sexy appeal! The collection features a few bigger names, but most are relatively lesser-known – the kind of singers who were more than happy to stick to the underground and just get the odd recording date here and there – because it meant that they never had to go pop or try to sacrifice their craft in the hopes of a hit record. Titles include "Off Shore" by Ethel Ennis, "For Heaven's Sake" by Anne Phillips, "Beyond The Next Hill" by Beverly Kenny, "Blue City" by Shirley Horn, "A Stranger In Town" by Lurlean Hunter, "Shangri-La" by Dolores Gray, "Baltimore Oriole" by Barbara Lea, "Can't We Be Friends" by Toni Harper, "Along With Me" by Jane Fielding, and "Travlin Light" by Marcy Lutes.

✨✧ John FaheyOf Rivers & Religion/After The Ball ... CD
Reprise/BGO (UK), 1972/1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Blazing R&B, slightly more simmering soul, and some rollicking wildcard tunes that split the difference – all on this fantastic second volume in the R&B Singles series from Outta Sight! It's a great collection, culled mostly from the fertile early 60s period when the sound was still strongly rooted in mid-to-late 50s rhythm & blues, yet beginning to lay the groundwork for gritty southern soul and tighter Northern Soul sounds to come. A nice mix of legendary names and lesser known stars alike, with 30 great tracks in all: "Feelin' Kind A Lonesome" by Willie J Charles with Lionel Hampton, the eternally amazing "Cry To Me" by Solomon Burke", "Earthquake" by Roy Hamilton, "Come On Baby" by Marie Knight, "The Snake" by Oscar Brown Jr, "How Many More Times" by HB Barnum, "Shake It Up And Go" by John Lee Hooker, "A Three Dollar Bill" by Beverly Ann Gibson, "I See Your Face" by Joe Simon, "Betty Mae" by Rodger Green and more.
