Pat Moran with Bev KellyComplete Trio Recordings with Scott LaFaro (This Is Pat Moran/Beverly Kelly Sings) ... CD
Audio Fidelity/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1957. Used ... $12.99
Both Audio Fidelity sessions from pianist Pat Moran – back to back on one CD! First up is the album This Is Pat Moran – great instrumental work from a pianist who first grabbed our attention for her vocal work on Bethlehem, but who steps out here nicely in a trio setting! The group here features a very young Scott LaFaro on bass – not as arch modern as on his recordings from a few years later, but still unlocking a nice sort of sound on his instrument – one that sometimes rivals Moran's work on the keys for melodic attention. The drummer on the date is Johnny Whited – and titles include "In Your Own Sweet Way", "Onilisor", "Stella By Starlight", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "Blackeyed Peas", "I Could Have Danced All Night", "Farewells", and "Blues". Next up is a vocal session recorded at the same time – not with Moran singing, but an early date from vocalist Bev Kelly! Kelly's vocals are intimate and warm – with qualities that remind us a bit of Chris Connor on Bethlehem, but without as much of a sense of darkness. The tunes are mostly familiar ones, but they're recorded with some nice elements that keep things interesting – thanks especially to the work of Moran and LaFaro! Titles include "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "The Man I Love", "I'm Glad There Is You", and "But Not For Me". CD

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! Includes lengthy live riffs on P-funk classics like "Cosmic Slop", "(Not Just) Knee Deep", "Maggot Brain", "Atomic Dog"and "Flashlight", "Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Off The Sucker)", "Do That Stuff", "Cosmic Slop" plus a medley of "Let's Take It To The Stage", "Mothership Connection (Starchild)" and "I Call My Baby Pussycat" in a nearly 100 minute set!

Roost/Warner (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... About June 29, 2016
Sweet and mellow vocal work from Bev Kenny – a sophisticated jazz singer who sadly 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

Ten Speed Press, 2008. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

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

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

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".

VariousBoy Trouble – Garpax Girls ... 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.

VariousCatch Action – The Sophisticated Boogie Funk Of Sheridan House Records ... CD
Luv N' Haight, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99 18.98
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 – 27 on 2CDs – 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!

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.

VariousOne-Der-Ful Collection – One-Der-Ful Records ... CD
One Der Ful/Secret Stash, Late 60s. New Copy ... $15.99
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.

VariousOld Town & Barry Soul Survey ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... About August 1, 2016
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.

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

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".

Classic modern soul from the legendary Frankie Beverly!

The record also features the wonderful "Southern Girl", an excellent smooth cut that's a great example of the kind of solid soul that Frankie was bringing to the charts in the early 80s. Other tracks include "Roots", "Changing Times", and "The Look In Your Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album

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.

Warner/Robinsongs (UK), 1989/1993. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
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!

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.

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

✨✧ VariousRockin The Groove – When Groove Was More Than Just A Habit ... CD
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.
