Harley HatcherHard Ride – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Paramount, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $11.99
A delightfully offbeat soundtrack from the glory days of the biker film – put together by Harley Hatcher, but featuring performances by a whole host of different artists! Hatcher approaches the record with the same sort of vibe that Mike Curb was using for similar projects – working with a bunch of short vocal numbers, most of which are performed by lesser-known groups, in styles that are almost a Sunshine Pop take on biker rock! The big star here is Bill Medley – who sings "Swing Low Sweet Chariot" – and other titles include "The Hard Ride" and "Victorville Blues" by The Sounds Of Harley; "Shannon's Hook Shop" and "Let The Music Play" by Bluewater; "I Came A Long Way To Be With You" and "Carry Me Home" by Thelma Camacho; and "Fallin In Love with Baby" by Junction.

Sue RaneyIn Good Company ... CD
Discovery (Japan), 1990. New Copy ... $21.99
Sue Raney's a singer that most folks know from some famous Capitol Records albums at the end of the 50s – yet she's also a hell of a vocalist who really knows how to keep on keeping on – as she does strongly on this album from the start of the 90s! Sue's got a modern look on the cover, but has lost none of the smart phrasing and hip swinging of her youth – and she works here in the company of a cool west coast combo – led by pianist Alan Broadbent, and featuring Conte Candoli on trumpet, Bob Cooper on tenor, and Bill Watrous on trombone! As with other of the best Discovery Records sides from the time, there's a rock-solid quality here that's way more than you'd expect from the lower-end look of the cover – and Raney does a great job on tunes that include "Poor Butterfly", "How Deep Is The Ocean", "Indian Summer", "After You've Gone", "The Man I Love", "My Foolish Heart", and a medley of "Indiana/Donna Lee".

✨✧ Don CherryArt Deco ... LP
A&M, 1989. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A late, straight side from Cherry, and a nice one at that! Cherry's joined by West Coast jazz men from his past James Clay, Charlie Haden And Billy Higgins, for a nice set with standards intermingled with the group's own tunes and a couple of Ornette numbers, too. The readings are crisp yet expansive, with these elder statesman delivering performances that betray the confidence they've built up over many years of playing. 10 tracks in all: "Art Deco", 'When Will The Blues Leave", "Body & Soul", "Bemsha Swing", "Maffy", "Folk Medley", "The Blessing", "Passing", "I've Grown Accustomed To Your Face" and "Compute".

K Frimpong & His Cubano FiestasK Frimpong & His Cubano Fiestas ... CD
Continental, 1977. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
The great second album from Ghana's K. Frimpong – backed by the group Vis-a-Vis (though billed in the title as his Cubano Fiestas) – a stunning blend of Ghanian Highlife music and rawer Afro Funk & soul! A few K. Frimpong numbers appeared on some of our favorite African compilations of the late 90s & 00s – but this original album from 1977 has remained rare. K. Frimpong sings and he's backed up by the fairly large Vis-A-Vis players, but they deliver a pretty tight groove – drums, congas and other percussion, trumpet and sax, some really soulful electric guitar, some piano, and occasional waves of spacey synth. Amazing stuff! Includes "Hwehwe Mu Na Yi Wo Mpena", "Asaase Yi So", "Awisa" and the side-long "Adama Nana (Medley)". CD

Diana RossDiana Ross Live At Caesars Palace ... LP
Motown, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $2.99
A fantastic early demonstration of the solo powers of Diana Ross – a live date from Vegas, and one that has her commanding the stage not just as a singer of soul music, but as a female star ready to rival the talents of any of her contemporaries in the mainstream! Ross shines here with a brilliant brightness right from the start – working with a large ensemble that echoes all her best Motown roots, but which also pushes things out in fuller, more vibrant modes too – as Diana runs through tracks that include old soul favorites, jazz standards, and even some surprising choices from the charts – at a level that's filled with poise, class, and soul throughout. Titles include a great "Supremes Medley", plus "Don't Rain On My Parade", "Corner Of The Sky", "I Love You Porgy", "My Man", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", and a "Lady Sings The Blues Medley" with titles from the Billie Holiday songbook. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousDisco Cheek 80s ... CD
Sony (Japan), Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $29.99
A strange and wonderful mix of tracks – one that goes past the familiar disco you might expect from the title, and which also includes some crossover pop tracks from the 80s – all in a mix of rhythms that easily moves between mellow, midtempo, and more upbeat grooving! The selection here is by DJ Osshy, who's unabashedly in love with 80s pop – which means he can effortlessly lay a soul tune alongside an AOR number, and get some really great results in the process – especially given that some of these tracks are ones that we'd normally expect to find on such a collection. The 2CD package features 36 titles in all – divided into a "bitter side" and a "sweet side" – and tracks include "I Miss You" by Klymaxx, "After The Love Has Gone" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Sweet Baby" by Stanley Clarke & George Duke, "A Woman Needs Love" by Ray Parker Jr, "One On One" by Hall & Oates, "There'll Be Sad Songs" by Billy Ocean, "Almost Paradise" by Mike Reno & Ann Wilson, "Drive" by The Cars, "Reality" by Richard Saunderson, "Ooo La La" by Teena Marie, "Sara" by Starship, "Sexual Healing" by Marvin Gaye, "Between The Sheets" by Isley Brothers, "It Will Be Alright" by Airplay, "Baby I Love Your Way/Freebird Medley" by Will To Power, "Through The Fire" by Chaka Khan, "Babe" by Styx, and "You Got It All" by The Jets.

✨✧ Sonny StittJust In Case You Forgot How Bad He Really Was (32 Jazz pressing) ... CD
32 Jazz, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A smoking little bop set from Sonny Stitt – recorded live at the Keystone in 1981, as sort of a "summit meeting" of horns – one that features Richie Cole and John Handy in the frontline with Sonny! The rhythm section alone is enough to cook this one up nicely – with Cedar Walton on piano, Herbie Lewis on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – and the sextet is expanded by Bobby Hutcherson, whose vibes seem to bring an even deeper level of soul to the set. But the main focus here is on the horns – and it's a focus that's well-kept, especially on the longer tunes, which really sparkle in the range of tone and mood expressed. Highlights include an extended "Ballad Medley" and versions of "Wee", "Lover Man", and "Star Eyes". (And by the way, that's "bad", as in "good" – in case you couldn't guess from the title!) CD
(Out of print.)
