✨✧ Black BloodAmanda ... LP
Polydor, 1977. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Later work from the combo also known as Lafayette Afro Rock Band and Ice – but still pretty darn nice – and served up in a style that has more straight Afro-Funk grooving than you'd expect! There's a nicely tight small combo feel to the whole thing – more African than before, especially on the lyrics, which are often sung together in chant form – but still with plenty of American funky touches on the bass, percussion, and keyboards. Titles include "Muko Wapi", "Amanda", "Be Happy", "Funky Cha Cha", "Umuliye", "Tchalo", "Voodoo", and "Bwelela Kwesu". LP, Vinyl record album

Black BloodBlack Blood (A Mwana) ... LP
Mainstream, 1975. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Supposedly, this is one of the many incarnations of the group that's better known under the names Lafayette Afro-Rock Band and Ice. The material here is more in the vein of work by Ice – in that it's kind of faster Afro-Funk inspired grooves, with bass, guitar, organ, and lots of keyboards in the mix. Cuts include "Avenue Louise", "Kiswahli", "Ewohe Dance", "AIE (A Mawana)", "Aye Mama", "Chicano", and "Jesus He Is My Brother". LP, Vinyl record album

Blood Sweat & TearsChild Is Father To The Man ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Very Good ... $4.99
A wild debut from Blood Sweat & Tears – one of those records that forever changed the face of popular music! The set's noteworthy not just for early vocals from Al Kooper – who was a key part of the group at their start – but also for key production work from a young John Simon – who helped arrange a bit, threw in a few musical touches, and really gave the group some focus on record – of the sort that would continue over the course of man albums. The set's got some added strings at points, and there's even some backup vocals from the duo of Valerie Simpson and Melba Moore. Titles include "Overture", "I Can't Quit Her", "Just One Smile", "Without Her", "My Days Are Numbered", "Morning Glory", and "So Much Love/Underture". LP, Vinyl record album

Cold BloodSisyphus ... LP
San Francisco, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $7.99
One of the best albums ever recorded by this legendary Bay Area funk combo – a key part of that city's crossover scene, and a group who always deserves a second listen! The album's a mixture of Sly Stone funk, Tower Of Power horns, and some of the hard-burning guitar/organ lines of groups like Santana – no surprise, since all 3 powerhouse acts were contemporaries of Cold Blood! The album includes the cut "Your Good Thing", a nice remake of the Hayes/Porter classic that features guest vocals by The Pointer Sisters. Other cuts include the monster 7 minute instrumental jammer "Shop Talk", plus "Funky On My Back", "Too Many People", and "I Can't Stay". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Blood Sweat & TearsBlood Sweat & Tears ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stone classic from Blood Sweat & Tears – and a record that went onto have a tremendous impact in jazz, rock, funk, and soul! The group's format is plenty darn famous – adding a lot of horns to hip riffing grooves – but despite countless plays on oldies stations over the years, this initial album still has a power that's undeniable – a way of putting the whole thing together that really uses the best elements of the late 60s studio – handled with sweet production from James William Guerico that rivals his best work for Chicago! Even the lead vocals by David Clayton Thomas hold up nicely – and the set includes the classics "Variations On A Theme By Eric Satie", "And When I Die", "Smiling Phases", "More & More", "Spinning Wheel", and "You've Made Me So Very Happy".

✨✧ Cold BloodThriller ... LP
Reprise, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great later album from this legendary San Francisco crossover soul combo! The set moves off the style of some of their earlier work for Reprise, and Cold Blood are really opening up their sound here – still staying quite soulful, but also going for the fuller finish of the west coast early 70s scene – and not trying to sound so much like a straight soul cover band. The shift is a good one – and while the mellower cuts may be a bit too mellow at times, the group's also still got enough of a groove on the best numbers, and makes good use of the studio to work up their funky playing. Includes a nice cover of "Kissing My Love", plus versions of "Baby I Love You", "Sleeping", and "I'll Be Long Gone". LP, Vinyl record album

Ike Turner & The Kings Of RhythmShe Made My Blood Run Cold ... LP
Southern Routes, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
The earliest work of the legendary Ike Turner – tracks recorded long before his 60s and 70s fame with Tina Turner – at a time when the man was both leading his own great combo, and adding his fantastic guitar talents to a host of different records! Turner had one of the strongest, wildest styles of the time – almost as much an important addition to the young sound of rock and roll as the guitar of Chuck Berry – although often used in more R&B-styled settings, such as the sides on this collection. The range of singers varies nicely – and the package features Ike working with Billy Gayles, Jackie Brenston, Johnny Wright, Clayton Love, Dennis Binder, Jimmy Thomas, Little Johnny Burton, and others – all while also serving up some incredible work on guitar! Titles include "Do Right Baby", "Hoo Doo Say", "Talkin About Me", All The Blues All The Time", "The Big Question", "I'm Tore Up", "Sad As A Man Can Be", "She Made My Blood Run Cold", "Hey Hey", "Wicked Little Baby", "Jack Rabbit", and "Gonna Wait For My Chance".

✨✧ Fela & Africa 70Sorrow Tears & Blood (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An impassioned attack on police and army violence in 70s Nigeria – and easily one of Fela Kuti's best-remembered albums of the time! The lead track – "Sorrow Tears & Blood" – is really tremendous – a wicked groove that begins with a very long electric piano solo, which sets things up with almost a melancholy vibe – which is then echoed by the alto sax – all instrumental elements that create their own sort of pain and anguish, which is then given focus by the angry lyrics of the tune! "Colonial Mentality" has an equally sinister vibe, and some especially strong saxophone work – really powerful, and with a very sharp edge – so that it really stands out from the rest of the group!

Classic horror sounds from the BBC sound archive – material that goes way past the door squeeks and cat growls of other albums of this nature – at a level that really takes the "death" in its title seriously! It's hard to ignore selections with titles like "Arm Chopped Off", "Head Chopped Off", "Arm Broken", "Whipping", "Two Women Screaming", "Heavy Breathing", and "Nails Hammered Into Flesh" – and these tracks sit alongside "gentler" selections that include "The Electronic Swamp", "Approaching Thunder", "Grave Digging In Wet Ground", "Ghostly Piano Sounds", "Electronic Heartbeats", "Wolves Baying At The Moon", and "Squelching Footsteps".

Alessandro AlessanadroniSangue Di Sbirro (180 gram pressing – with bonus track) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
One of the funkiest soundtracks we've ever heard from Alessandro Alessandroni – a set that clearly shows he'd been listening to the score for Shaft, as well as a host of 70s sound library music too! There's lots of great Italian cop/crime grooves on the set – done at an understated level that's almost better than more familiar work of the genre – often strongly focused on the core rhythms, which are lean and plenty darn funky – bad-stepping with instrumentation that's often small combo funky jazz more than it is the bigger orchestrations of American cop scores. Titles include "Cop's Blood", "Amusement", "Duke Soul Jazz", "Tema Di Susie", "Club Jazz", "Palance", "Knell", "Sbirro In Fuga", and "Luxury". Features the never-issued bonus cut – "Tema Di Susie #2 (suspance version)". LP, Vinyl record album

Albert AylerLast Album ... LP
Impulse, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $29.99
Ayler's last album ever – and an incredibly strange batch of tracks that shows perfectly the kind of stylistic and emotional struggle he was going through in the final years of his life. Like the albums New Grass and Love Cry, this one shows Ayler toying with influences from other genres – like rock and soul – in order to better communicate his message to the masses. And while there's some strange odd moments that don't really work, there's others that have a gutsiness that's stunning – especially from the otherwise serious (by this point) NY underground. Players include Bobby Few, Muhammad Ali, and Stafford James – and tracks include "Untitled Duet", "Again Comes The Rising Of The Sun", "Toiling", "Birth Of Mirth", and "Desert Blood".

Dennis BovellDecibel – More Cuts And Dubs 1976-1983 ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2LP ... $23.99 24.98
Pressure Sounds does it again, with another fine collection of mighty, mighty dub! A much needed Blackbeard retrospective collecting 16 hard to get cuts from British dubmeister Dennis Bovell, rare dubs and instrumentals, plus a couple of outstanding vocal tracks from the man at the epicenter of the British reggae scene. Focusing on Bovell's early work, this collection brings some of his heaviest productions out for the first time since their original release in the mid-seventies, all propelled by his chubby bass playing and rounded out by his deft touch on the console. 16 tracks in all: "The Grunwick Affair", "Harmoniser Dub", "Dominion Dub", "Rowing (12" version)", "Zombie Zones", "Zion Dub", "Higher Ranking", "Ranking High", "Scientific", "Shi-cago", "None Jah Jah Children (Melodica version)", "Uganda Crisis", "Ah Fi Wi Dis", "Entebbe", "Blood Ah Go Run" and "Dub'er".

A true masterpiece for The Cure – possibly their best ever! Robert Smith and company had flirted with moody pop before, but they really hone in on that with Head On The Door, and it's as essential as anything they'll ever do – a knockout from the the opening seconds of "In Between Days" to the closing seconds of "Sinking". Everything is firmly in place here – improving on the global eclecticism of their previous album The Top on cuts like "Kyoto Song" and "The Blood", more compelling melodicism on "Six Different Ways", the perfect avant pop of "Close To Me"... wow, this record! Indispensable all the way. Other tracks include "The Baby Screams", "Push", "A Night Like This" and "Screw". LP, Vinyl record album

Champion Jack DupreeBlues From The Gutter ... LP
Atlantic, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $69.99
Blues from the gutter, with a nice current of jazz, too – thanks to participation from a hip group who really make this album from Champion Jack something special! Dupree himself sings and plays piano – often with plenty of rootsy currents – but the combo also features excellent alto from Pete Brown, who adds in plenty of soul – as well as Ennis Lowery on guitar, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Willie Jones on drums. All tracks are credited to Jack, but there's more than a few here that are traditional, and just given new arrangements by Dupree – and titles include "Strollin", "Stack-O-Lee", "Frankie & Johnny", "Bad Blood", "Junker's Blues", "Evil Woman", and "Can't Kick The Habit".

EmergencyEntrance ... LP
CBS/Long Hair (Germany), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
Wow, that's quite a cover from this German group of the 70s – and fortunately, their sound is strong enough to make the record stand strong way past the goofy gimmick on the front! These guys are totally great – kind of like a funky version of Blood Sweat & Tears, which is saying a lot, as BS&T were always pretty funky to begin with – but Emergency strip down the sound even more, by mixing tight drums and bass with some soaring solos on tenor, soprano, and baritone sax – and nice use of keyboards and a variety of percussion alongside the vocals! The tunes are all nicely grooving, and surprisingly soulful – and the English language lyrics only further the funky elements on the set. Titles include "Why Am I Doin It", "Happiness", "Journey", "Emergency Entrance", and "Killin Time". LP, Vinyl record album

He may be blind, but he's plenty satisfied – and so are we, with this excellent package of rare 78rpm recordings from Willie Johnson! The sound quality is great – which is important, as Willie's got a style of guitar that's almost lighter in tone than some of his contemporaries – a deft thinness that really comes through well in this presentation of the music, really showing his skill on the strings. Vocals are surprisingly raw at points, making for a real contrast to the guitar – and titles include "I Know His Blood Can Make Me Whole", "Praise God I'm Satisfied", "Dark Was The Night Cold Was The Ground", "When The War Was On", and "Mother's Children Have A Hard Time".

Beautiful modernist work from Kenton – one of the first albums to cull his genius together as a whole, filled with the kind of tracks that perfectly sum up his unique approach at the time! If you've ever wondered what makes Kenton so great, this is the album to begin with – as it's filled with fantastic original tunes that provide a shimmering solo showcase for work of players like Lee Konitz, Frank Rosolino, and Bill Holman. Titles include "23 N - 82 W", "Young Blood", "Improvisation", and the haunting "Invention For Guitar And Trumpet", which features Sal Salvador and a young Maynard Ferguson. LP, Vinyl record album

Bunny LeeNext Cut – Dub Plates, Rare Sides, & Unreleased Cuts ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $23.99 24.98
A wealth of rare tracks from the archives of Jamaican producer Bunny "Striker" Lee – tracks pulled from one-off dubplates mixed direct from the studio, and other unreleased tracks pulled from never-heard master tapes too! The music here definitely lives up to Lee's production legend – and, as explained in the notes, these dubs have an extra added dimension than some of his contemporaries' work – as they're mixed from 4 track tapes, instead of 2 – which creates this much deeper sound, and even lot more room for echo! Yet there's also a core compressed competence to the cuts that we really love – rock-solid instrumentation from top-shelf Kingston studio legends, on rare dubs of "Enforcement" by Vin Gordon, "Blood Of Babylon" by Barrington Spence, "Down In A Babylon" by Johnny Clarke, "Ethiopian Girl" by Linval Thompson, "A Friend Indeed Dub" by The Aggrovators, "Crucial Dub" by Prince Jammy, "Satta Dread" by Wayne Jarrett, and "The Gorgon" by Cornell Campbell.

A richly complex set from David Murray – and a record that offers up a much wider range of moods than some of his other sessions from the time! Some numbers have an angular, almost aggressive groove – one that comes from the presence of group members James Blood Ulmer on guitar and Lonnie Plaxico on bass – but other moments are a bit more introspective, and show the more soulful side of Murray's blowing – a great balance that makes the record a perfect illustration of his growing players at the time. Other group members include Don Pullen on piano and Marvin Smitty Smith on drums – and Murray plays both tenor and bass clarinet. All tracks are long, and titles include "Death", "David Mingus", "All The Things You Are", and "Tension". LP, Vinyl record album

The style is quite unusual for the often-light Riz Ortolani – composer of some of the bigger Italian soundtrack hits of the 60s – with a sound that's quite dark and heavy, very much in the horror mode of Morricone's work of the time. Titles include "Tema D'Amore", "Ballo Al Castello", "Suspence No 5", "Nelle Tenebre", "Incubi", "Ossessione", and "Allucinazioni". LP, Vinyl record album

A fuzzy, freaked-out classic from one of the coolest groups to work on the Chicago scene of the 60s – the mighty Shadows Of Knight, easily one of the best garage acts of their time! The album's got a raw power that's undeniable – a gritty sound that almost beats the Boston, Texas, and Sunset Strip scenes at their own game – as sharp guitars, weird Hammond, and plenty of feedback come together to blow away the listener right from the start – all with a sound that's a lot more heady than the group's better-known "Gloria" hit, with a far-reaching vibe that makes us wish these guys had kept on recording a few more years longer – because they might have given some of the best European psych acts a real run for their money!

The music's a great illustration of Thompson's subtle power – the kind of understated approach that often made his music hipper than the rest, especially during the key 70s years in which these tracks were recorded – spun off with almost effortless ease, yet still full of biting power all these many years later. Titles include "Natty Dread Girl", "Don't Trouble Trouble", "Blood Gonna Run", "Monney Money", "Cool Down Your Temper", "Black Princess Lady", "Don't Cut Off Your Dreadlocks", "No Escape", and "Ride On Natty Dread".

Rob ThomsettYaraandoo/Hara (with bonus download) ... LP
Now Again, Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $49.99 55.98
It's a bit hard to sum up the genius of Australian Rob Thomsett in words – but you can bet that we're going to try! Rob was kind of a character unto himself in the 70s – neither a psychedelic rocker, nor a new agey outcast – but instead, somehow this musician who could borrow from both worlds, and maybe a bit of the sound library and jazz scenes too – particularly that new wave of Australian "landscape" musicianship that was coming of age in the decade – when artists like John Sangster or Don Burrows were putting aside a slavish adherence to North Hemisphere inspirations, and trying to craft new sounds that were uniquely Australian! Thomsett may well blow away all other efforts of the time, though – with the kind of work here on the album Yaraandoo – which features long, open guitar lines mixed with shifting patterns of sound on a variety of different instruments – from congas to moog, tenor sax to bamboo flute – always balanced between acoustic and electric modes in a perfect way. Rob avoids any easy gimmicks, lyrics, or structures – apart from a slight inspiration from Aboriginal folklore – and instead just lets his mind and music wander beautifully, sometimes augmented by a bit of effects and studio wizardry. Titles include "Baiame", "Moulding Of Red Earth", "Nameless Children", "New Life – Refusal", "Shadow Of Yaraan", "Flight Of Yaraan", and "Tears Of Blood – Endless Weeping". This package also includes the follow-up album Hara – a set that has a slightly more conventional fusion approach, but a sound that's no less freewheeling – really great guitars from Thomsett, set up alongside loads of keyboards, heavy drums, bass, and a bit of soprano sax. The tunes move between spacious, lyrical moments and more full-on tracks – a bit like some of the best experimental European fusion of the period – and titles include "Sumari", "Breathing Space", "Hara", "Sunday 23 May", and "Michael's Song". Double-length set features great notes and packaging too! LP, Vinyl record album

Lonnie YoungbloodLonnie Youngblood (1977) ... LP
Turbo, 1977. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Sax-based instrumentals from Lonnie Youngblood – playing here with some smooth mid 70s arrangements by Sammy Lowe. The album's not as funky as Lonnie's earlier work, the overall feel is pretty slick – but there's still a few nice clubby moments on the record. Tracks include "On Top", "Push It In", "Gonna Be Alright", "Lonnie Blow Your Horn", and a version of "Gonna Fly Now". LP, Vinyl record album

YoungbloodsRide The Wind ... LP
Warner/Raccoon, 1971. Very Good ... $19.99
Beautiful work from the Youngbloods – a mixture of folk rock and jazzy phrasing, very much in the same spirit of Tim Hardin or Tim Buckley, with a depth and complexity that's quite surprising, and which has held up surprisingly well over the years – almost more appealing now than when it was first recorded. The electric piano alone is worth the price of admission – jazzy in a way you won't find on the group's other records – and the album features a number of longer tracks – including a sublime reading of Fred Neil's "The Dolphin", and the cuts "Beautiful", "Sunlight", "Ride The Wind", and "Sugar Babe". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label pressing. Includes the insert. Cover has a split spine and bottom seam, with initials in pen on front.)

YoungbloodsRock Festival ... LP
Warner, 1970. Very Good ... $1.99
A record with a bit of a joke on the cover, but one that's also got a much more mature version of The Youngbloods than just a few years before – a group who are moving past straighter folk, bringing in bits of psych and jazz elements – yet still also keeping their cool a lot more than most of their contemporaries! The mix of acoustic and electric elements is wonderful – these compressed guitar lines that are sometimes complex, sometimes flowing in waves – working with very inventive drums and percussion from Joe Bauer – who maybe even nods towards freer jazz styles at times. Piano is acoustic and electric, woven by Banana beautifully around the lead lyrics of Jesse Colin Young – on titles that include "It's A Lovely Day", "Sea Cow Boogie", "Misty Roses", "On Beautiful Lake Spenard", "Fiddler A Dram", and "Ice Bag".

✨✧ BloodstoneUnreal ... LP
London, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent spacey soul from Bloodstone – one of the early 70s best crossover groups! The band has a nice mellow sound, mixed with some elements of uptempo production, and kind of a slightly funky ensemble feel. There's also some of the best elements of that east coast early 70s sound – like electric sitar, soaring strings, and weird spacey instrumentation that drifts in and out of the vocal passages. Titles include "What You Did To Me (parts 1 & 2)", "Outside Woman", "Let Me Ride", "Traffic Cop", and "Keep Our Own Thing Together". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

Warner, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The grandest scale and most elaborately furnished Black Sabbath album to this point – but they still bring the heavy! The title track is one of the most influential metal songs ever, with the foreboding lyrics, trudging stomp of a rhythmic pace and those bridges that are almost pretty – and the most of the rest of the album is great, too – more carefully produced than the previous few without compromising the menace. Titles include "A National Acrobat", "Fluff", "Sabbra Cadabra", "Spiral Architect", "Looking For Today", and "Who Are You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ DictatorsBloodbrothers (colored vinyl) ... LP
Elektra/Asylum, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A late 70s rager from The Dictators! This one's a hard charging blast from their time at Asylum – easing back on brawny humor of the first album, while sharpening the attack to a finer edge than they did on on their second album – adding up to a super catchy, but still nice and gruff gem that's too often overlooked! It has a bit of swaggery pre-punk sound of New York Dolls, maybe taking a cue or two from The Ramones' tight way with song structure, and all the distinctively gruff charm which always set The Dictators apart from all of their east coast peers. Includes "Faster & Louder", "Baby, Let's Twist", "The Minnesota Strip", "Stay With Me", "I Stand Tall", "What It Is", "Slow Death" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition red vinyl pressing!)

Brownout Presents – Brown SabbathBrown Sabbath 2 ... LP
Ubiquity, 2016. New Copy ... $15.99 19.98
A sweet return to Brown Sabbath territory – that wicked blend of deep funk rhythms and fuzzy guitar, served up by the Brownout collective! The groove has some of the Latin elements that you'd know from Adrian Quesada's other work – but the rising guitar lines dominate a lot more – as do the horns, which crest nicely above the music, to ensure that there's a bit more soul here than on the original Black Sabbath versions of the songs! Yet the vocals by Alex Marrero are also sometimes right in Ozzy territory – which brings things back to base a bit – making for one of the most unusual takes on the music of Black Sabbath you'll ever hope to hear. Titles include "Fairies Wear Boots", "Snowblind", "Supernaut", "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath", "Sweet Leaf", "Electric Funeral", and "Children Of The Grave". LP, Vinyl record album

Vic CaesarBare Knuckles – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Gucci, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 16.98
A long lost electric funk soundtrack for the grindhouse also-ran Bare Knuckles – full of wild, funky organ riffing, heavy drums and chicken scratch guitar! The flick is one of those sleazy 70s monstrosities full of motorcycle chases, bloody fist fights, and butt ugly guys who get the girls anyway – ripe material for a wildly funky soundtrack! We don't know details of the sessions or the players involved, but the sound is pure late 70s gritty organ and drums funk – one that would fit a blaxploitation flick, a badly dubbed kung fu cheapie or silly revenge flick! Tracks include "Bare Knuckles", "Shake Down", "Gonna Getcha", "Loving You", "Essex Exit", "Charing Cross", "Loving You Too", "Bare Knuckle Blues" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

CommonLike Water For Chocolate ... LP
MCA/Def Jam, 2000. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $24.99 35.98
A huge creative leap forward for Common! Com had been slowly moving from a Chicago street poet role into a more universally conscious hip hop soul from record to record to this point, but Like Water For Chocolate is the one that really catapulted him deep into that realm – especially given the excellent, mood setting production of Jay Dee/J Dilla and The Soulquarians. For a little while there, we missed the rawer Relativity era vibe, and we didn't fall as head over heels for Like Water For Chocolate as the world at large did, but in hindsight, maybe we just weren't ready for it – it's easily amongst the best hip hop albums of the period. Titles include "The 6th Sense", "Cold Blooded", "Dooinit", "Geto Heaven Part Two" with D'Angelo, "Time Travelin' (A Tribute To Fela)", "Heat", "The Light", "Thelonius", "Payback Is A Grandmother", "Funky For You", "A Film Called (Pimp)", "Nag Champa (Afrodisiac For The World)", "The Questions" and "A Song For Assata".

✨✧ Ebonee WebbToo Hot ... LP
Capitol, 1983. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Lots of bass, keyboards, and tight guitar – all stepping along in a sweet early 80s boogie mode – very much what you'd expect from the styled hair and thin ties on the cover! The sound is nicely sweet at times – not as poppy or funky as other groups of this nature – with some good harmonies on the chorus, and hooks that send the tunes home nicely, sometimes with a good little bounce. Titles include "Are You Really Ready", "Coldblooded Lady", "Do You Want My Love", "Too Hot To Be Cool", "Don't Ever Stop Loving Me", and "What's That You're Doing". LP, Vinyl record album

Lawrence Hilton JacobsLawrence Hilton Jacobs ... LP
ABC, 1978. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Although he's always best remembered as Freddy "Boom Boom" Washington from Welcome Back Kotter, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs was pretty darn ubiquitous during the mid-70s! He was in more than a few movies (Youngblood, Cooley High, etc), and he even recorded a few soul albums – like this one, which features some nice production work by Lamont Dozier that more than makes up for Freddie's lack of conviction as a soul singer. At the best moments, the record reminds us of some of Lamont's strident grooving soul work for ABC – and titles include "Time Machine", "Larry's Theme", "Mister DJ", "Holdin On", and "Fly Away". LP, Vinyl record album

KhalidAmerican Teen (with download) ... LP
Right Hand/RCA, 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $18.99 19.98
A fantastic debut from Khalid – a singer we're expecting will shape the sound of American soul in years to come – thanks to the strength of the work on this album! Khalid's got a voice that's totally unique – upfront about his weaknesses and youth, which he never tries to hide with any sort of overdone cliches or posturing – in ways that bring a whole new sort of honesty to mainstream soul! The presentation of the tunes is nicely fresh, too – sometimes quite lean, but not in a way to evoke any sort of "fake" soul – as can sometimes be the case – and instead just open to the organic flow of the words of the singer, which are even more powerful in the subtlety of the setting. Titles include "Young Dumb & Broke", "Another Sad Love Song", "Coaster", "8Teen", "Cold Blooded", "Therapy", "Winter", and "American Teen". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes download.)
Also available American Teen ... CD 9.99
