Pointer SistersBlack & White ... LP
RCA, 1981. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A great step into the 80s for The Pointer Sisters – a record that has them bringing in themes that are a bit more soulful than some of their previous efforts! The album's still got all the big crossover potential of their other hits – but the groove's got a solidly soulful vibe overall – plenty catchy, and with some great 80s elements bubbling underneath – more than enough to freshen up their sound, and give the trio great new territory to work through! Titles include the mega-hit "Slow Hand" – plus "Sweet Lover Man", "We're Gonna Make It", "What A Surprise", "Got To Find Love", "Fall In Love Again", "Should I Do It", and "Someday We'll Be Together". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bob Ray Sanders/Calvin LittlejohnCalvin Littlejohn – Portrait Of A Community In Black & White (hardcover) ... Book
TCU Press, 2009. New Copy ... $6.99 29.95
A treasure trove of vintage photos from Calvin Littlejohn – an important African-American photographer in the Fort Worth area in the years before Civil Rights – and one with a great eye for capturing a special moment of unique scene! The images here are all black and white, but paint a very colorful picture of Texas during the Jim Crow years – a separate society of music venues, schools, churches, homes, and businesses – brought to life in photos from the late 40s through the early 70s. Almost all of the images feature residents of the area, but the settings are very conscious of the local spaces as well – and some of the subjects include Ruth Brown, Jackie Robinson, Paul Robeson, Ella Fitzgerald, Oscar Peterson, and Illinois Jacquet. 202 pages, hardcover, and oversized – with lots of black and white images.

Watts ProphetsThings Gonna Get Greater – The Watts Prophets 1969-1971 (Rappin Black In A White World/Black Voices On The Streets In Watts) ... CD
ALA/Water, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $11.99
A rare bit of hardcore poetry by the Watts Prophets – the legendary LA group who were kind of a west coast answer to the Last Poets! The group have a sound that's as striking as the best early work by The Last Poets – a hard-hitting blend of poetry, rhythms, and righteous energy – all recorded in a style that's stripped down, proud, angry, and in stark contrast to the rest of the work coming out in the soul music industry at the time. Their work was not only some of the most radical and striking of the early 70s, but it's also gone onto become a key blueprint for hip hop of later years – especially the rough-edged style of the west coast that began to emerge at the end of the 80s. CD brings together all the tracks from the group's 2 albums – a total of 41 short tunes that pack the punch of a hand grenade! Titles include "Pain", "A Pimp", "Take It", "Amerikkka", "The Prostitute", "F*cked", "Black In A White World", "Funny How Things Can Change", "Pimping Leaning & Feaning", "Keep You Doing Things", "The Meek Ain't Gonna", "Saint America", "They Shot Him", and "Response To A Bourgeois Nigger".

Augusto MartelliBlack Sound From White People ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... On June 17, 2015
If you can forgive the title of this one, you'll find it to be a very groovy record! The album's a killer batch of funky instrumentals ("black sound") recorded in Italy in 1972 by Augusto Martelli ("white people") – and it's got the groove and swing of some of the best Italian soundtracks from the time, no surprise, as Martelli had his hand in a few from that era! The package is a nice one – with a thick booklet, notes in Japanese, but some good images of Martelli and album covers – and the music is really great, with some excellent sax and flute work that takes the tracks into a jazzier mode than usual for this sort of thing! Loads of great percussion too – and titles include "Loco Love Motor", "Mondo No", "Krypto Blues", "Ma ne Vale La Pena", "90th Compleanno", and "Sara Stato Il Futuro". CD

✨✧ Severed HeadsSince the Accident (black & white colored 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Ink/Medical, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Really great early work from Severed Heads – done at a time when they still had an edge, and were a lot more hip and electro than some of their later more goth-based impulses! The album's a perfect fit for all the best UK underground electrics of the period – Cabaret Voltaire, 400 Blows, and even the earliest Human League – back when they were nice and noisy. The duo have a great way of blending noisy bits with warmer elements – and even do these great sequences with turntables – kind of a more playful Christian Marclay mode! Titles include "Dead Eyes Opened" – which was a bit of a favorite – plus "Golden Boy", "Gashing The Old Mae West", "A Relic Of The Empire", "Epilepsy 82", "Treating Deaf Mutes", and "Brassiere In Rome".

Little RichardLittle Richard & His Band (Specialty 2103) (white vinyl) (2014 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Specialty/Fantasy, 1958. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99
Hard-searing work from the legendary Little Richard – the real deal, the original stuff, the kind of work that blew everyone away when it was first released, years before Richard became some sort of cliche! The raw power in this music is undeniable – as Richard screams his way through a host of tight tunes, virtually inventing soul music in the process – as the band vamps with bold energy, and the leader serves up some searing piano alongside the lyrics! And yes, you'll know a few hits here, but there's also some lesser-known gems that further illustrate Little Richard's power – a set list that includes "All Around The World", "Send Me Some Lovin", "Keep A Knockin", "Baby Face", "Ooh My Soul", "Lucille", and "Hey Hey Hey Hey".

Ehud Asherie with Harry AllenLower East Side ... CD
Posi tone, 2013. Used ... $6.99
A great follow-up to the previous collaboration between pianist Ehud Asherie and tenorist Harry Allen – this time titled after a darker corner of downtown New York! As with the other date, this one features no other instrumentation at all – just warmly expressive duets on piano and tenor – spun out with the kind of classic tones you'd expect from Allen's work with bigger groups, yet also more intimate and personal as well. Tunes are mostly older standards, evoking the Lower East of the postwar years, and the key clubs that used to grace that scene – and titles include "Hey There", "Thou Swell", "Sposin", "Portrait In Black & White", and "Some Other Time".

Soul Jazz (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $36.99 49.95
A stunning book of photographs to stand alongside the excellent album art books done by the Soul Jazz label – a treasure trove of hardly-seen images of some of the best underground musicians of the 60s and 70s – and a great antidote to the sorts of jazz books that are only just filled with pictures of Duke, Louis, and Miles! In true Soul Jazz fashion, the volume shines the spotlight on key avant and spiritual jazz figures – like Roland Kirk, Ornette Coleman, Albert Ayler, Elvin Jones, Cecil Taylor, Eric Dolphy, Alice Coltrane, Lloyd McNeil, The Art Ensemble Of Chicago, Max Roach, Larry Young, and many others – each of whom get at least one very vivid photo (some black and white, some color), and a short bit of text that introduces their music and placement in jazz. To be fair, there's also some shots of Miles, too – but shown in a very different context in this great book! 189 pages, oversize, with a great hardcover package. Book

The punk press in all of its glory – served up here in an oversized book that brings together pages and images from the underground music papers of the 70s! The book features reproductions of a few articles, and some very detailed pages of notes at the end on the contents – but overall, the presentation is very imagistic – with both color and black and white images, done in the DIY style of the period – where just a little bit, used the right way, could carry a great deal of power! Subjects run the gamut – from The Clash, to The Sex Pistols, Lou Reed, William S Burroughs, and many others – and the book is a partner project to the equally great Sex Press book, and done in a similar style. 240 pages, softcover, and nice and big!

Jane Birkin & Serge Gainsbourg1973 (Di Doo Dah/Vu De L'Exterieur/A Bout Portant/bonus tracks) (2CD/DVD) ... CD
Universal (France), 1973. New Copy 3CD & DVD ... $30.99
A really great package – one that sums up this key year in the careers of Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin – with two full albums, lots of bonus tracks, and a whole film too! First up is Birkin's excellent album Di Doo Dah – sweet sweet work from Jane – an early solo set that steps strongly off of her classic duets with Serge Gainsbourg! In a way, this album's as much a record by Serge as it is by Jane – since Serge wrote almost all the tracks, and since the arrangements are handled by the legendary Jean-Claude Vannier – who worked famously with Gainsbourg on Melody Nelson and other funky recordings! The set's got a slow, sexy, funky vibe – very similar to the Gainsbourg/Vannier collaborations – and maybe even sexier, given the way that Jane Birkin handles her breathy vocals. There's some sweet guitar bits that go great with Jane's delivery of the material – and the whole thing's an essential part of the Gainsbourg/Birkin canon. Tracks include "Help Camionneur!", "Banana Boat", "Kawasaki", "Leur Plaisir Sans Moi", and "Les Capotes Anglaises". CD features 2 bonus tracks – "La Decadanse" and "Les Langues De Chat". Next is Vu De L'Exterieur – a great Serge Gainsbourg album from 1973 – one that we'd rank right up there with his best work! The record's got a slinky funky groove that's right in a perfect post-Melody Nelson mode – music written by Serge, and played by a hip small combo that includes lots of great guitar from Alan Parker and sweet electric keyboards and organ from the great Alan Hawkshaw – both of whom really help keep the sound great! Many tracks have that mellow funk groove that's become the best-remembered Gainsbourg sound over the years – and as with many of his other albums of the time, this one's brimming over with potential samples and riffs to steal. Titles include "Panpan Cucul", "Sensuelle Et Sans Suite", "Pamela Popo", "Titicaca", and "Par Hasard Et Pas Rase". CD features loads of bonus tracks – 10 whole more tunes added to the album – including "Les Papiers Qui Collent Aux Bonbons", "Titicaca (inst)", "L'Hippodrome (inst)", "Panpan Cucul (working version with different lyrics)", "Pamela Popo (inst)", "Je Suis Venu Te Dire Que Je M'En Vais (complete)", and "Tout Mou Tout Doux (2014 rmx)". Comes in a great book-style cover – with notes and loads of gorgeous photos – and a DVD that features the film A Bout Portant – a 51 minute film, black and white, shot in 1973! CD

Black Smoke (aka Smoke)Black Smoke ... LP
Chocolate City, 1976. Very Good+ ... $14.99
This group were one of a number to use the name Smoke during the 70s – but at some point they were forced to change their name to Black Smoke, and you'll see the record listed both ways, but with the same cover. The band's a mixed ensemble of funk players – and they've got a sound that begins with a bass-heavy Average White Band groove, but moves into some more sophisticated playing with plenty of jazz funk touches. No surprise that the album's produced by Wayne Henderson, who handled some of the best jazz funk of the 70s – and in a way, the group probably sounds more like Pleasure (who Henderson also produced) than anyone else. The album features the extremely catchy soul tune "What Goes Around Comes Around", which has sweet ensemble vocals riffing along in a jazzy groove – plus the tracks "Screamin", "There It Is", "Freedom Of The Mind", and "Turn This Thing Around".

The cover's black and white, but the album's filled with wonderful colors in sound – a bold array of work from pianist Donald Brown – working here with a hip lineup that includes Vincent Herring on alto and soprano sax, Tom Harrell on trumpet, and Steve Nelson on vibes! Nelson's sharp, chromatic tones really bring a lot to the record – and they're nicely balanced by Brown's work on the keys – sometimes soft and soulful, other times bold and modern – pulling all players along in his sweep. Titles include "Booker T", "Reruns From The 60s", "Prism", "Gaslight", and "The Biscuit Man" – and the album also includes the warmly grooving vocal tune "I Love It When You Dance That Way", sung by Lenora Helm.

Warner (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $9.99
Larry Carlton live in Tokyo – really sounding great in the stripped-down vibe of a concert performance! At the time, Carlton was still one of the most focused jazz fusion guitarists of his generation – really able to hone in on a great style and sound, with all the best expressive attitudes of guitar giants from years before – almost more of an updated bluesy soul jazz sound than some of the trippier or dippier modes of some of his contemporaries. There's definitely some rockish influences, but Larry also never over-jams his solos – nor tries to go for the crossover crowd – and titles include "House On The Hill", "Black & White", "Upper Kern", "Salud", and "Strikes Twice".

University Of Illinois, 2009. New Copy ... $6.99 39.95
Great photographs from a forgotten corner of the Chicago area – even to most of the folks who live nearby – the neighborhoods around the Calumet Harbor, a lost part of the city near the Indiana border! Calumet is home to older shipping docks, crumbling industry, and many shuttered businesses – but photographer Gary Cialdella manages to find a lasting sense of place through images of homes, taverns, parks, churches, and businesses – and even some industrial landscapes as well! We've driven through the area countless times in search of records – often with no great results on the vinyl front, but a real sense of discovery in finding a part of our metro area that few other people ever visit – and Gary really captures the unique spirit of the area with his well-done black and white photographs.

MoWest/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
A great record from The Crusaders – and an album that's really the start of the group's strong run of smooth funky jazz for the 70s – a very vibrant little set, even though the black and white cover makes the whole thing look a bit understated! The album's got the group dropping the "jazz" from their name, but it's still a great bit of LA funky soul jazz – with electric keyboards from Joe Sample that are very much in a late 60s mode, plus guitar from David T Walker and Arthur Adams, and bass from Chuck Rainey, in addition to fine work by regulars like Stix Hooper, Wayne Henderson, and Wilton Felder. Tracks have a tight and uncomplicated funky approach, with a slightly smooth edge – and titles include "Do Yourself A Favor", "Try A Little Harder", "Cold Duck Eddie", "Way Back Home", and the Afro-funky groover "Alekesam"!

Atlantic, 1956. Very Good ... $1.99
Wilbur DeParis may be working at Symphony Hall in Boston, but the sound here is pure New Orleans jazz all the way through – played in a tight small combo setting that features Wilbur on both slide and valve trombone, alongside Sidney DeParis on cornet, Omer Simeon on clarinet, Sonny White on piano, and Bennie Moten on bass! The hall gives a nicely echoey feel to the performance – almost an audio quality that's more vintage than the date of the recording – although all players come through with great clarity overall. Drummer Wilbert Kirk also plays a bit of harmonica – and titles include "Banjoker", "Sister Kate", "Cielito Lindo", "Farewell Blues", and "Juba Dance". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing. Cover has remnants of a small sticker.)

✨✧ Al Di MeolaLand Of The Midnight Sun ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A real 70s standout from guitarist Al Di Meola – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of most of his albums from the decade! The record's one that broke Al's talents out to so many different groups – yet never in a way that waters down his sound, nor dims his genius for a solo. Al plays a host of guitars – electric, and both six and 12 string acoustic – the latter of which are especially beautiful, and handled in a balance between European virtuoso modes, and some of the more rhythmic elements of the American fusion scene. Speaking of fusion, the other players on the date really help set the tone – Chick Corea on keyboards and piano, Barry Miles on Fender Rhodes and mini-moog, Stanley Clarke on bass, and both Steve Gadd and Lenny White on drums – each setting a different pace when they appear. Titles include "The Wizard", "Suite Golden Dawn", "Short Tales Of The Black Forest", and "Land Of The Midnight Sun". LP, Vinyl record album

Baby DoddsTalking & Drum Solos (10 inch LP) ... LP
Folkways, 1951. Very Good+ ... $28.99
Amazing lost work from Warren "Baby" Dodds – a pioneering jazz drummer born and bred in New Orleans before moving to Chicago and influencing countless trap clappers! Talking And Drum Solos was originally released as a 10-inch on Folkways, and as the title suggests it's a loose batch of sometimes spare, sometimes rolling crack drum solos by Baby mixed with some tight Big Easy brass jazz and easy going monologues by the drummer. The album is credited as being one of the first full albums dedicated to drum solos, but it's appeal stretches far beyond the concept. Tracks include "Spooky Drums No. 1", "Drums In The Twenties", "Careless Love Blues", "Rudiments" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny DoddsNew Orleans Clarinet ... LP
Riverside, 1920s. Very Good- ... $14.99
Seminal recordings of the trad clarinetist, recorded in Chicago in a variety of settings, mostly smaller bluesy groups of the sort that were inhabiting the south and west sides of town. Like Louis Armstrong, he supplanted his New Orleans style to Chicago, meshing it with the urban black musics that would become the roots of jazz. A dozen numbers in all, recorded with Jasper Taylor's State Street Boys, Junie Cobb's Hometown Band, Viola Bartlette, Blind Blake, the State Street Rqamblers and Lovie Austin's Blues Serenaders, including "It Must Be The Blues", "State Street Blues", "East Coast Trot", "Chicago Buzz", "Walk Easy 'Cause My Papa's Here", 'Southbound Rag", "Bohunkus Blues", "Buddy Burton's Jazz", "Cootie Stomp", "Weary Way Blues", "Chicago Mess Around" and "Gallion Stomp". LP, Vinyl record album

Michael Dowers, EditorNewave – The Underground Mini Comix of the 1980s (hardcover) ... Book
Fantagraphics, 1980s/2010. New Copy ... $6.99 24.99
Underground comix ruled the 60s, and indie presses sprung up in the 70s, but the real revolution in the 80s came from home-made mini comics – often printed at copy shops, and folded into these great little self-distributed publications with no rules at all! The mini comics revolution led to a surprisingly great new wave of creativity – images and words that were often tied to the punk underground of the time, and which had a very different aesthetic than the hippie styles that held sway in the 60s and 70s. This massive volume reproduces loads of the best moments of that generation, in the same size in which they were circulated – with almost 900 pages of black and white comix, and work by a huge amount of artists who include Jeff Gaither, Daniel Clowes, JR Williams, Tom Christopher, Meher Dada, Par Holman, Jim Siergey, Rick Geary, Artie Romero, Al Greenier, Brad Foster, Michael Roden, Bob X, Steve Willis, and many others.

Serge GainsbourgInitials BB (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/4 Men With Beards, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
A fantastic Serge Gainsbourg album – and the BB initials in the title belong to Brigitte Bardot! This rare gem from 1968 is a second set of tracks that Serge cut with Brigitte Bardot – and it's a doozy! The record repeats a few tracks from their other effort (Bonnie & Clyde) – but it's also got some incredible cuts that are exclusive to this album, and which have that stone funky groove that makes the best late 60s work of Serge so in-demand these days! The best tracks include "Ford Mustang", "Initials BB", and "Black And White" – all of which have incredible funky intros that are totally sampleable – and the set also includes "Bonnie And Clyde", "Qui Est In Qui Est Out", "Marilu", "Shu Ba Du Ba La Loo Ba", "Hold Up", "Torrey Canyon", "Dr Jeckyll Et Monsieur Hyde", "Comic Strip", and "Bloody Jack".

✨✧ Dizzy GillespieLive At The 1965 Monterey Jazz Festival ... CD
Monterey Jazz Festival/Concord, 1965. Used ... $2.99
A nice set by Diz at the 1965 Monterey Jazz Festival – backed by a great group of players – released here for the first time ever! The set opens with a fiery day after, and the set takes some equally hard charging turns plus some relaxed moments, too – and includes some surprises, too. Big Black is killing it on congas for this set – and the other players include James Moody on flute and tenor, Kenny Barron on piano, Christopher White on bass and Rudy Collins on drums. Other titles include "Trinidad, Goodbye", "Poor Joe", "Night In Tunisia", "Ungawa" and "Gega De Saudade (No More Blues)", plus a fun comedy sketch in the middle. CD

Dizzy Gillespie/Mal WaldronCool World ... LP
Philips, 1963. Near Mint- ... $26.99
A brilliant little soundtrack from Dizzy Gillespie – composed by Mal Waldron, and played by Diz with a sound and sensitivity that few of his other 60s albums can match! The feel here is quite bold and righteous – a perfect accompaniment for the documentary-like black and white images of Shirley Clarke's film – set in Harlem, and mostly recorded on location in the early 60s! Dizzy's tone is wonderful – bracing one minute, blue-toned the next – and the rest of the group is wonderful too – with James Moody on tenor and flute, Kenny Barron on piano, Chris White on bass, and Rudy Collins on drums. There's a richly expressive feel to the music that makes the set hold up fantastically both as a soundtrack and as a jazz album – and titles include "The Pusher", "Duke's Fantasy", "Coney Island", "Bonnie's Blues", "Duke's Awakening", "Coolie", and "Enter Priest".
