Blood Sweat & TearsChild Is Father To The Man ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Very Good ... $9.99
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

Jesus & Mary ChainBarbed Wire Kisses – B-Sides & More (180 gram blood red colored vinyl) (2015 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Warner, Mid/Late 80s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $34.99
Prime period B-Sides, live recordings and other rarities from The Jesus & Mary Chain – great stuff from the first 5 or 6 years of their career – up there creatively with their best work ever! As dark-edged as the band is, they've often worn their influences on their sleeves over the years, be it the proto rock rawness of Bo Diddley, the catchy vocal style of early Beach Boys (though layered in razor wire) or the moody freneticism of Can – and they're all the more open with them on this collection,while still sounding like quintessential JMC. Classic! Includes "Kill Surf City", "Surfin' USA", "Upside Down", "Swing (Darklands Outtake)", "Just Out Of Reach", "Head", "Cracked", "Here It Comes Again", "Bo Diddley Is Jesus", "Rider", "Don't Ever Change", "Sidewalking", "Who Do You Love" and more.

ScientistsBlood Red River (with download) ... LP
Numero, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 19.98
Swaggering Aussie underground rock from The Scientists – a real blast from the early 80s that's as vital as ever! The group evolved a bit here from their rawer, more classifiably punkish self-titled record. This one manages to presage some of the great indie rock of the 90s and beyond, with a blistering sound and a sly swagger that's still kind of scary. It's the kind of thing we'd hear later on in bands like Scratch Acid – with a bit of a roots rock reverence recalls the Cramps somewhat, along with the murkiness of Funhouse-era Stooges – but we're loathe to keep name dropping a bunch of other bands, because The Scientists really do stand apart. Gnarly, brilliant stuff! Titles include "When Fate Deals Its Mortal Blow", "Burnout", "The Spin", "Rev Head", "Set It On Fire" and "Blood Red River". LP, Vinyl record album

Bob ThieleI Saw Pinetop Spit Blood ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1975. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Kind of an oddball record for Flying Dutchman, one we don't see too much. Bob Thiele produced a ton of sides, but not too many under his own name. This one's got more than a few heavies helping out, like Oliver Nelson, Tom Scott and Bobby Bryant but somehow it never seems to rise above a second rate TV soundtrack or sound library type vibe. Includes "The Evil Dude", "Kung Fu, Too!" and "How Does It Feel To feel?". LP, Vinyl record album

James Blood UlmerAre You Glad To Be In America? (UK pressing) ... LP
Rough Trade (UK), 1980. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A classic bit of Black Rock from James Blood Ulmer – and a record that was issued by Rough Trade in the UK, giving it a surprising influence on the post-punk scene of the time! In a way, Ulmer's groove here has a lot of punky-funk in the mix – thanks to some heavy electric bass from Amin Ali, and tight drumming from Ronald Shannon Jackson. The horns sneak in and out of the rhythms next to Ulmer's sometimes heavy guitar work – and players include David Murray, Oliver Lake, and Olu Dara – all grooving in a frenetic sound that's a key link between the New York downtown and UK post-punk scenes! Titles include "See Through", "TV Blues", "Time Out", "Jazz Is The Teacher (Funk Is the Preacher)", "Interview", "Pressure", and "Layout". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1981. Very Good+ ... $2.99
A pivotal bit of work by Ulmer – a relatively frenetic mix of guitar tracks for a major label jazz release, possibly the fading light of Columbia's commitment to free thinking jazz at the time. Ulmer's on guitar on all tracks, and vocalizes only a bit – and other players include Calvin Weston, Amin Ali, Olu Dara, David Murray, and Oliver Lake. Titles include "Timeless", "Pleasure Control", "Night Lover", "Happy Time", "Rush Hour", "Stand Up To Yourself", and "High Time". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cold BloodLydia ... LP
Warner, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the tightest albums ever cut by this San Francisco funk combo – one titled after their lead singer Lydia Pense, who'd become a much better vocalist by this point than she was on earlier efforts. The album's strongest point, though, is still the instrumentation – which is arranged and produced here by Steve Cropper with sort of a 70s Memphis groove, one that brings out the sharpest edges of the guitar and organ riffing. Titles include "Under Pressure", "Consideration", "Just Like Sunshine", "Ready To Live", "Simple Love Life", and "When My Love Hand Comes Down". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ James Blood UlmerAmerica – Do You Remember The Love? ... LP
Blue Note, 1987. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Ulmer on Blue Note – who'd a thunk it? And oddly, although the album's on one of the most jazz-based labels at the time, it's also one of Ulmer's most rock-oriented – with strong lead vocals on nearly every track, and an overall style that's as bluesy as it is experimentally jazzy. Ulmer's clearly emerged as a star in his own right (or own mind) by the time of the album – and there's less of the shared group dynamic of the harmelodic years, and more of a style that's set up to support his lead presence. Players include Bill Laswell, Ronald Shannon Jackson, and Nicky Skopelitis – and titles include "I Belong In The USA", "Lady Blue", "After Dark", "Black Sheep", and "Show Me Your Love America".

Arthur BlytheLenox Avenue Breakdown ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Very Good ... $7.99
A stunning Columbia Records debut from Arthur Blythe – recorded at a time when the label was really sinking its teeth back into quality jazz, and helping artists like Arthur get some great new exposure! At the time of the date, Blythe had already spent years working in the jazz undergrounds on both coasts – developing a searing sound on alto sax that's perfect for the focused structure of this album – almost a tone poem of sorts, offering up a portrait of the Harlem scene that was a key part of Arthur's life at the time. The sounds are sharp, but also have a sense of energy that really holds them together – guiding the players through long readings of well-penned tunes by Blythe that are filled with loads of energy and life! Players include James Newton on flute, James Blood Ulmer on guitar, Bob Stewart on tuba, Cecil McBee on bass, Jack DeJohnette on drums, and Guillermo Franco on percussion – and titles include "Odessa", "Slidin Through", "Down San Diego Way", and "Lenox Avenue Breakdown".

Stelvio CiprianiGli Orrori Del Castello Di Norimberga (bloody edition) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1972. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $34.99 43.98
A horror soundtrack for the Mario Bava classic Baron Blood – but one that's done with some groovier touches than you might expect! Maestro Stelvio Cipriani handled the work for the score – and although he definitely brings in all the right dark edges for the narrative, he also sprinkles the tunes with some of his cooler styles of the period – similar to his music for action and erotic films of the time! There's plenty of dramatic moments, but we especially like the way they're offset by Stelvio's inherent sense of warmth and spacing – which keeps the whole thing from just becoming another familiar experiment in arch sounds. 2LP version features a few rare bonus tracks – and titles include "Ipnosi", "Inseguita", "Eva E Peter", "Il Barone E Fuga Di Eva", "La Bambina E Il Castello", "Macabro Maniero", and "Visitando Mr Becker". LP, Vinyl record album

Como MamasGet An Understanding (limited edition) ... LP
Daptone, 2013. New Copy ... $13.99 17.99
Rootsy gospel from The Como Mamas – a tremendous trio of female singers, working here in an all-acapella mode that's completely sublime! The set's an offshoot of the Como Now project done by Daptone a few years ago, and has the same timeless feel – quite a difference from the heavy funk you might normally hear on Daptone, yet equally soulful all the way through! The tunes are spiritual, but served up with more than enough depth to please any fan of secular soul, too – and the lack of any instrumentation, mixed with straightforward production, all makes the record feel like some lost indie label gem from decades ago. Titles include "Nobody's Fault But Mine", "Peace Of Mind", "Thank Him Enough", "God Is Good To Me", "I Know It Was The Blood", "Old Landmark", "Ninety Nine & A Half Won't Do", and "Soon I Will Be Done".

Electric Peanut Butter CompanyElectric Peanut Butter Company – Trans-Atlantic Psych Classics Vol 2 (peanut butter colored vinyl – with download) ... LP
Ubiquity, 2013. New Copy 2LP ... $15.99 19.99
A really wonderful collaboration between Shawn Lee and Adrian Quesada – and a set that maybe goes further than a lot of recent work from the artists on their own! Quesada's ear for the psychedelic mixes wonderfully with Lee's funky grooves – in a space that's as trippy as it is soulful, and which wonderfully skirts a space between all the different genres you'd be likely to find in the coolest crate digger's collection! There's vocals on many tracks – but slung out over core instrumentation that really gets things going from a soulful perspective – so much so that even some of the more rockish moments soon get plenty funky. Keyboards are wonderful, production is rock-solid, and the whole thing's exactly the kind of nugget you'd guess from the title. Tracks include "Going In Circles", "Christophe Waltz", "Tape Lifter", "Cold Blood", "Dreams", "Mono Man", "Big Tweed", and "Backstreet Wall". LP, Vinyl record album

Duke EllingtonAnd His Mother Called Him Bill ... LP
RCA, 1968. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A nicely understated session that was recorded in honor of Billy Strayhorn – who'd passed away a few months before the recording. The set features all classic Strayhorn compositions – played in new versions by Duke and a group that includes Clark Terry, Johnny Hodges, Paul Gonsalves, Aaron Bell, and Jimmy Hamilton. The recording quality is great, and the sound of the album really makes old classics sparkle nicely once again! Titles include "UMMG", "Blood Count", "Boo Dah", "Rain Check", "Day Dream", "All Day Long", and "Lotus Blossom", done in a haunting solo piano version by Duke! LP, Vinyl record album

GazzaraPlay Me My Song – Gazzara Plays Genesis ... LP
Irma (Italy), 2014. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... $13.99
An album we never thought we'd see from Francesco Gazzara – but one that still pleases us a heck of a lot! Gazzara's a name we've trusted for funk and other groovy styles from the Italian scene for almost 20 years now – but here, he moves away from his previous jazzy modes into a completely different instrumental realm – as his ensemble takes on the classic sounds of Genesis from the Peter Gabriel era and beyond! Turns out, Gazzara's a hell of a pianist – and often plays a Bosendorfer grand here, along with his more familiar Fender Rhodes and Hammond – in a group that features two violins, cello, and sax and flute from Dario Cecchini – instrumentation that's often used sparingly, so that Gazzara's keyboards are up front and almost solo throughout. We're huge fans of Genesis from this time – and Gazzara really reminds us of the musicianship that went into their famous recordings – as he takes on titles that include "Watcher Of The Skies", "The Cinema Show", "For Absent Friends", "The Lamia", "Firth Of Fifth", "Duke's Travels", "Blood On The Rooftops", "Seven Stones", "The Knife", and "Mad Man Moon".

Ghostface Killah & Adrian YoungeTwelve Reasons To Die ... LP
Linear Labs, 2013. New Copy ... $18.99 20.98
Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge team up for this most intriguing artist and producer/composer collaboration – one with a promising concept and they deliver in full – shadowboxing their way to a knockout! On the mic tip, Ghostface is in his comfort zone – spitting lyrics laced with martial arts, mafia and supernatural imagery – and doing so with a furious flow and peak precision. Adrian Younge and his Venice Dawn group lay down the sounds – with dusty soul and funk, naturally – but what really pushes this one to a superior level are the unpredictable and ingenious nods to 70s Italian film scores, particularly in the giallo genre. Spooky, echoey keyboards and occasional angelic female backing vocals elevate the vibe and balance the grit. 12 tracks and no filler: "Beware The Stare", "Rise Of The Black Suits", "I Declare War" with Masta Killa, "Blood On The Cobblestones" with U-God & Inspectah Deck, "Rise Of The Ghostface Killah", "Murder Spree" with U-God, Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck and Killa Sin, "Enemies Around Me" with William Hart of the Delfonics, "The Sure Shot (Parts 1 And 2)", "Twelve Reasons To Die" and more.

ECM (Germany), 2015. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $31.99 35.99
Beautiful trio work from pianist Vijay Iyer – a record that's filled with the sorts of chunky rhythmic lines we love so much in his playing! The album's got Iyer working much more at a familiar level than his more electronic album for ECM – with that sort of warmth and joy that's really brought new life to the piano trio format through his recordings – the best of which we might put up there with our early favorites from Robert Glasper. The group features Stephan Crump on bass and Marcus Gilmore on drums – and titles include "Blood Count", "Break Stuff", "Taking Flight", "Work", "Wrens", and "Mystery Woman". 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".

Rickie Lee JonesRickie Lee Jones ... LP
Warner, 1979. Very Good ... $0.99
Sure, Rickie Lee Jones went onto become a bit of a cliche in later years, but this early album's still got an undeniable power – and was a great breath of fresh air, at a time when it seemed like most of modern music was forgetting its roots! What is it with the LA scene from the 60s onward that they always seemed to find their best inspiration in the past? Artists like Harpers Bizarre, Randy Newman, Tom Waits and others set the stage for a record like this – by reaching back into older styles and bringing them forward with a more contemporary spin. (And why was it that LA seemed to be the center of this mode – and New York, Chicago, and other cities never worked that way?) Rickie serves up a nice assortment of older-styled vocal cuts – performed with a mixture of traditional and 70s jazz backings, supported by some extra-classy Warner production from Lenny Waronker. Titles are all originals, but done with an older hipser sort of feel – and titles include "Easy Money", "Chuck E's In Love", "Young Blood", "The Last Chance Texaco", "Danny's All Star Joint", "Weasel & The White Boys Cool", "Company", "Coolsville", and "On Saturday Afternoons In 1963".

✨✧ John KlemmerMagic & Movement ... LP
Impulse, 1973. Very Good- Gatefold ... $1.99
Excellent work by Klemmer – filled with the kind of fire and emotion that you don't get on many of his other records! The set was recorded live at two different venues – and it's a choppy slightly-funky batch of modal soul jazz tunes, with an approach that makes it feel like a lost album on Strata East. On side one, Mike Nock is on Fender Rhodes, Wilton Felder plays bass, and Eddie Marshall is on drums. Titles on that set include "Blood Of The Sun" and "How Cum Ya Got Ta Rip Off Your Brothers?". Side two was recorded live at Montreux, and features more Fender Rhodes, plus backing by Cecil McBee and Alphonze Mouzon. Klemmer plays tenor with echoplex processing, and titles include "Free Love" and "Tree Of Forbidden Fruit". LP, Vinyl record album

The first record by Lighthouse – a strange band that's always incredibly hard to peg, but who have a sound that we always end up liking a lot! The group mix together folk rock styles with a touch of soul and funk – going for some nice grooves that build up from lots of drum work and airy vocal production, touched here by lots of horns, in a style that's a bit like Blood Sweat & Tears, but a lot lot cooler! This first album is something of a landmark in the jazz/rock vein – and titles include "Never Say Goodbye", "Follow The Stars", "Mountain Man", "Whatever Forever", "Marsha Marsha", and a great cover of "Eight Miles High".

An early spooky soundtrack from Riz Ortolani – a composer we usually know best for more playful work of the 60s, but who really shines here in his score for a film also known as Castle Of Blood! The music has this tense, spare sort of feel – almost prefacing more atonal moments to come from the Italian scene in the 70s, with a mix of acoustic orchestrations and some keyboard effects that almost have a sci-fi feel! A few warmer moments provide this great sense of contrast – and the album features 22 tracks in all – served up in a wonderful cover, too. LP, Vinyl record album

The sound is deep and soulful, and despite the "accent on the blues" of the title, the feel's more blue note than bluesy. Great versions of Harold Mabern's "Rakin' & Scrapin" and Eddie Harris' "Freedom Jazz Dance", plus some excellent originals by Cabell. LP, Vinyl record album

Win Or Lose, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A landmark album – one of the greatest harmony soul albums of the early 70s! The title cut is one you'll know instantly – as "Thin Line Between Love & Hate" is one of those soul classics that never gets old – and the rest of the album's equally great, with a sublime mix of rough and sweet that the group was never able to duplicate again. The sound is incredible – with arrangements by Richard Poindexter, and backings by the group Young Gifted & Bad, who often use a bit of vibes behind the vocals, which makes for a really cool sound! Titles include "Let's Get Down Together", "Blood Brothers", "If This Is What You Call Love (I Don't Want No Part Of It)", "Love Gonna Pack Up" and "You Musta Put Something in Your Love".

An early 60s vampire soundtrack – and one that's maybe as creepy for its sweet moments as for its spooky ones! There's almost a vintage vibe to the whole thing – with some orchestrations that begin the score with melodic themes, which then give way to these eerier passages that either feature a theremin or some other similar-sounding instrument – creating these spooky sounds over the warmer melodies – a contrast that's got the same vibe as scenes when a vampire under cover is acting normal, but you know he's going to strike! LP has a great cover, and features 12 tracks from the score, plus a bonus trailer for "Curse Of The Blood Ghouls"! LP, Vinyl record album

Crisply popping grooves from Roger – a great solo record from the voice of Zapp! The Saga Continues finds Roger still rocking his trademark effects laden vocals and vamping guitar work into the middle of the decade – with even tighter syncopated percussion, funky keys, and sharp synth bursts – sailing in a killer groove throughout! Roger produced the record along with Larry Troutman – and they bring in Maceo Parker for a horn solo and Ohio Player Billy Beck for keyboards as well! Tracks include a vocoder funk reading of Wilson Pickett's "Midnight Hour", plus "In The Mix", "Play Your Guitar Brother Roger", "The Break Song", "I Keep Trying", "Bucket Of Blood", "T C Song", and "Girl Cut It Out".

ScientistScientist Rids The World Of The Evil Curse Of The Vampires ... LP
Greensleeves/Dub Mir, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Scientist spins out on a dub-driven power boat – scanning the swamps to drive out the vampires and a host of other ghouls too – all while reinventing Jamaican music in the process! The record's filled with lots of cool electric elements – those weird production effects and electronic doodles that make the music of Scientist so revolutionary – especially when spun out over a still-familiar backdrop supplied by Roots Radics, with a core essence that's very much from the pre-digital world of Jamaican music. Rhythm tracks were done at Channel One, and Scientist mixed the set at King Tubbys – a host of dub mini-masterpieces that include "The Voodoo Curse", "Dance Of The Vampires", "Blood On His Lips", "Cry Of The Werewolf", "the Mummy's Shroud", "The Corpse Rises", "Night Of The Living Dead", "Your Teeth In My Neck", "Plague Of Zombies", and "Ghost Of Frankenstein".

A cool contemporary score from Italy – but one that feels like horror greats from the late 70s and early 80s! The instrumentation here is mostly in an old school electric style – keyboards and guitars that echo the music of Goblin, but at a level that's often more spare and less jamming – stretching out with this great sense of space that really builds up the tension and mood throughout – to create a really captivating record, even away from the screen. Titles include "Phurba", "Escape From Tulpa", "Lonely Nights", "Working My Ass Off", "Italian Giallo", "Lisa's Theme", and "Bloody Radio". LP, Vinyl record album

Funeral Bonsai WeddingFuneral Bonsai Wedding (with download) ... LP
Kernal Sound, 2014. Sealed ... $4.99
A rock record, at least from the vocal standpoint – but a set that's also got a very strong grounding in jazz – thanks to a lineup that includes Jason Adasewicz on vibes, Frank Rosaly on drums, and Jason Roebke on bass! Steve Dawson is in the lead on vocals – and has a raspy sound that's compelling, and almost in a Bloodshoot Records sort of vein – but the use of the other instrumentalists in the quartet, especially Adasewicz, really gives the album a unique flavor – and the loping modal rhythms mixed with vibes almost recall the spirit of some of Tim Buckley's best late 60s work. Titles include "Confusion", "In The Valley Of The Whale", "Ezra Pound & The Big Wood River", "The Night Of The Liquor Store Fire", and "Anywhere You Landed". LP, Vinyl record album

Mahogany BrainWith (Junk-Saucepan) When (Spoon-Trigger) (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Marge/Souffle Continu (France), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99
A really unusual set from early 70s France – a record done for the mostly-jazz imprint Futura Records –but one that seems to also embrace some of the trippier styles of the time too! Most of the music here feels largely improvised – lots of guitar likes that skitter out over bass and percussion – sometimes with vocals, sometimes with other instrumental elements on piano, flute, or violin – and always with this kind of dark, brooding energy that's quite unique! These guys are hardly indulgent proggers, nor balls-out rockers – and instead almost have this close, personal approach that reflects the free jazz scene of the time – but which also has more of a rockish construction to the tunes and their use of vocals. Echo often makes the words sound quite spooky, and overall the album's plenty eerie – and titles include "Screaming Zenith", "Hot Milk Elbow", "Sky Fish", "Bloody Hide & Seek In The Rain", "Universe", and "Head Of Night".

Brian Reitzell30 Days Of Night (colored vinyl) (2015 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Ipecac, 2007. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $38.99
One of more chilling modern horror soundtracks, for the creepy, unflinchingly dark, remote Alaska set 30 Days Of Night! It's composed by Brian Reitzell, whose had a pretty fascinating career – from being a drummer and percussionist for bands as varied as punk/power pop/glam stalwarts Red Kross and French soundcape gurus Air. Like some of his other soundtrack work, there's a moody, almost shoegazy haze to it – but this one is appropriately steeped in eerie, disquieting elements. Includes "Prelude/Last Day Of Sun", "Girl Bait", "Vampires On The Horizon", "The Bloody Fruits Of Barrow", "The One Who Fights", "Daybreak" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 1000!)

John StewartCalifornia Bloodlines ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Very Good- ... $4.99
A late 60s studio folk gem from John Stewart – best known as a writer, having penned material for the Kingston Trio and "Daydream Believer" for the Monkees – stepping forward really well with this unfussy, but fairly impeccable set for Capitol! It was recorded in Nashville with some of the musicians who sat behind Dylan on Nashville Skyline – the Kenneth Buttrey drums and the Lloyd Green steel are always welcome to these ears – and John's voice and songs share a folksy, but down-to-earth sensibility that's exudes warmth from every pore. Hardly as well remembered as many of the folk-country-rock albums of the era, but it should be! Titles include "California Bloodlines", "Razorback Woman", "She Believes In Me", "Omaha Rainbow", "The Pirates Of Stone County Road", "Mother County", "Some Lonesome Picker", "Missouri Birds", "July You're A Woman", "Never Goin Back Down" and more.

✨✧ Michal UrbaniakFusion III ... LP
Columbia, 1975. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Michal Urbaniak's third Fusion set for Columbia – very fittingly titled, considering what a huge influence his playing had on the genre! The album's a very tight batch of groovers – soaring and spacious, but never overindulgent – sometimes featuring scatting vocals by wife Urszula Dudziak, and also sporting strong rhythms from drummers Gerald Brown and Steve Gadd – both of whom really bring a nice solid bottom to the set, and help keep things focused! Yet then again, Urbaniak's always been one of the more focused players of his generation – especially on American recordings like this. There's lots of keyboards and electric grooving in the mix – and titles include "Chinatown", "Bloody Kishka", "Cameo", "Stretch", "Metroliner", "Roskana", and "Kuyaviak Goes Funky".

Andre WilliamsBait & Switch ... LP
Norton, 2001. Sealed ... $6.99
Recent work by the king of the raunchy 45! Andre's working here in kind of an all-star setting – with a core backing group on all tracks, plus guest work by soul and rock luminaries that include Rudy Ray Moore, Lonnie Youngblood, The Four Dollars, Ronnie Spector, Robert Quine, and The Mighty Hannibal. The range of styles is a bit wider than on some of Andre's other recent albums – but there's a good rock impulse in the set that really keeps things raw and raunchy. Titles include "Soul Brother In Heaven & Hell", "Put That Skillet Away", "Detroit Michigan", "Get This Love Off My Mind", "I Ain't Guilty", "It's Gonna Work Out Fine", "The Lie", and "Sent Up".

A great little soundtrack that really matches the spirit of the film – Quentin Tarantino's own blacksploitation soundtrack – served up here as a mix of classics from the 70s, plus a few special tracks recorded just for the movie! The cover's got a great badass look, and the record features a few incidental moments from the film – and titles include "Across 110th Street" by Bobby Womack, "Strawberry Letter 23" by Brothers Johnson, "Who Is He (And What Is He To You)" by Bill Withers, "Didn't I Blow Your Mind" by The Delfonics, "The Lions and The Cucumbers" by The Vampire Sound Inc, "Monte Carlo Nights" by Elliot Easton's Tiki Gods, "Natural High" by Bloodstone, "Midnight Confessions" by Grass Roots, "Inside My Love" by Minnie Riperton, "Street Life" by Randy Crawford, and "Long Time Woman" by Pam Grier!

VariousNew York Noise – Dance Music From The New York Underground 1978 – 1982 ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... About February 12, 2016
Seminal work from one of the most exciting times in modern music – the groundbreaking New York post-punk, post-disco club years – when everything was up for grabs! The work on the set does a really great job of documenting the way that boundaries were blown during the time – as funk met punk, rock met rap, soul met ska, avant garde met mainstream – all in pursuit of the groove! For years, this period has gone under-documented and under-understood – largely because of the complexity and diversity of the music in the scene. But as always, the folks at Soul Jazz Records have done a fantastic job of bringing the whole thing to light – choosing all the best tracks we could have hoped for, and packaging the album with a great set of notes that really gets at the heart of the matter! Titles include "Baby Dee" by Konk, "You Got Me" by Theoretical Girls, "Contort Yourself" by The Contortions, "You Make No Sense" by ESG, "Beat Bop" by Rammelzee Vs K Rob, "Lesson No 1" by Glenn Branca, "Clean On Your Bean #1" by Dinosaur L, "Helen Fordsdale" by Mars, "Defunkt" by Defunkt, "Button Up" by The Bloods, "5:30" by DNA, "Do Dada" by The Dance, "Wa Wa" by Lizzy Mercier Descloux, "Reduction" by Material, and "Optimo" by Liquid Liquid.

BloodstoneNatural High ... LP
London, 1972. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Seminal work from Bloodstone – an album that may be the group's best-remembered effort, and for good reason too! The album sets a whole new standard for harmony soul in the 70s – one that's tighter than some of the east coast groups, yet never too slick or polished – kind of a slow-building style that's filled with warmth, but has some trippier elements on the funky cuts too – a really great mashing of styles that instantly set Bloodstone apart from their contemporaries! At one level, the group seem to channel the fragile sounds of The Moments/Whatnauts – but at another, they pick up the heavier vibe of the Norman Whitfield-produced groups – with lots of bass at the bottom, and some psych soul production. The album includes their monster track "Natural High", which has some killer harmonies, plus other nice ones like "You Know We've Learned", "Peter's Jones", "Ran It In The Ground", and "Tell It To My Face".

Strand, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare album from Memphis Slim – recorded in the US in 1961, one year before he decided to spend the rest of his career in Paris! The set was recorded in Chicago with some key contributions from John Calvin on alto, Johnny Board on tenor, and Matt Guitar Murphy on guitar – all players who really bring a lot to the set, and sometimes mix in some jazz undercurrents that expand the music nicely. One of the tighter, more polished sets we've ever heard from Slim – but in a good way – and titles include "Pigalle Love", "Four Walls", "Lonesome", "Cold Blooded Woman", "True Love", and "I'll Just Keep On Singing The Blues".

✨✧ VariousStax Of Funk Vol 2 – More Funky Truth ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A mountain of funk from one of the greatest soul labels of all time! Stax is known round the world over for their soulful work – by singers like Otis Redding or Carla Thomas, and instrumental tunes by Booker T & The Mgs – but the label was also quite a funky powerhouse – especially as the 60s drew to a close, and the management of the company got a lot hipper, and a heck of a lot more musically open-minded! This killer batch of tracks features 21 numbers from those days – including many obscure and funky tunes that only ever came out on singles, or which were recorded by artists that never made it as big as Stax stars from earlier years. The result of all that obscurity is an extremely fresh selection of tracks – plenty of down-n-dirty funky 45 numbers, played by hip Memphis combos, and featuring some really deep soul vocals. Titles include "Dark Skin Woman" by Sir Mack Rice, "Ain't No Sin" by John Kasandra, "Bump & Boogie" by The Wrecking Crew, "Shame On The Family Name" by Calvin Scott, "Cool Strut" by Bernie Hayes, "Bump Mean" by Sir Mack Rice, "Soul Machine" by Reggie Milner, "How Can You Mistreat The One You Love" by Katie Love, "Cold Blooded" by The Bar Kays, "Do The Side Saddle" by Rufus Thomas, "Stay Away From That Monkey" by Jimmy McCracklin, "Them Hot Pants" by Lee Sain, "Devil In A Man" by Stu Gardner, "Curcuits Overloaded" by Inez Foxx, "From Toys To Boys" by The Emotions, "Got It Together (parts 1 & 2)" by Rudy Robinson & The Hungry Five, and "Crosscut Saw" by Albert King.

✨✧ BloodstoneDo You Wanna Do A Thing? ... LP
London, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
Bloodstone moving into a whole new thing – a funkier groove than before, and one that really points the way towards the group's clubby direction at the end of the 70s! Although best known as a sweet harmony group, Bloodstone shine equally well in this upbeat mode – a territory that's somewhere in a space between the funky Isleys of the 70s, and some of the more soaring, sweeping Philly grooves of The Spinners! A few fragile, mellow moments come into the mix – which helps balance out the sound – and the group get some great east coast soul treatment from arranger Bert DeCoteaux, who co-produced the album with Tony Silvester. Titles include a great version of "Just Like in the Movies", the Ace Spectrum classic – plus the tracks "This is It", "When We're Doin It", "Do You Wanna Do a Thing", "If You Wanna Be My Baby", and "Give Me Your Heart". LP, Vinyl record album
