Black BloodBlack Blood (A Mwana) ... LP
Mainstream, 1975. Very Good- ... $12.99
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 & TearsBlood Sweat & Tears ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Very Good- Gatefold ... $3.99
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".

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 BloodLydia ... LP
Warner, 1974. Very Good+ ... $9.99
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

✨✧ Cold BloodLydia Pense & Cold Blood ... LP
ABC, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $6.99
Cold Blood are still going strong in the mid 70s – a lot stronger than anyone would imagine for a group that was kind of a white-boy (and girl) soul group coming out of the magical Bay Area scene of the late 60s. The group's actually a lot tighter here than before – and the instrumentation has kind of an Average White Band funky groove to it, one that offers up some nice moments in the breakdowns. Lydia's vocals are still something we can't cotton to, though! Titles include "Drink The Wine", "We Came Down Here", "I Get Off On You", "Feel The Fire", "Blinded By Love", "Back Here Again", "Let Me Be The One", and "It Takes A Lot Of Good Lovin".

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

Cold BloodThriller ... LP
Reprise, 1973. Very Good ... $9.99
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

Fela & Africa 70Sorrow Tears & Blood ... LP
Barclay (France), 1977. Very Good (reissue)... $29.99
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!

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".

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 ... $18.99 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".

✨✧ Cody ChestnuttMy Love Divine Degree ... LP
Hand Written, 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $34.99
Divine sounds from the mighty Cody Chestnutt – a singer who's come a long way from both his Headphone Masterpiece album, and the long drought that followed that classic set! Cody's very firmly back in the driver's seat – and he's working strongly to remind folks that fuzzy, abstract soul was a genre he virtually invented – unafraid to let the beats and crispy bits in the mix get equal space alongside his vocals, sometimes turning the bottom up top, and really letting the songs find their flow! Yet the lyrics are also more important than before, too – filled with a sense of message that really shows a maturing side of the singer, and a willingness to answer some of the struggles that might not have touched him as strongly before. Cody still may be one of the most understated singers in soul music – but he's also got this subtle power that just seems to get better as the years move on – and maybe even a bit more collaborative here, as the album features some contributions from artists who include Raphael Saadiq and Twilite Tone. Titles include "Africa The Future", "Anything Can Happen", "I Stay Ready", "Image Of Love", "Have You Heard Anything From The Lord Today", "Shine On The Mic", "This Green Leaf", "It's In The Love", "Always Sebrena", "So Sad To See A Lost Generation", "Bullets In The Street & Blood", and "Make A Better Man".

CureHead On The Door ... LP
Elektra, 1985. Very Good ... $29.99
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

✨✧ Francesco De Masi7 Hyden Park – La Casa Maledetta ... LP
Beat/Sub Ost (Italy), Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
Lots of cool keyboards from Francesco De Masi – served up in a style that's a lot more 80s than his famous earlier work – almost as if Francesco was trying trying to get in with the younger horror soundtrack generation! The style is still great, though – with sounds that show all of De Masi's rich understanding of broader instrumental arrangements – which sometimes factor into the music, but which also seem to emanate from his keyboards even when they're in the lead. The music has a nice current of warmth from time to time – not just the starkness of the usual electric keyboard score, which makes for a very rich vibe to the whole record! Titles include "House In The Park", "Dreadful Cellar", "Twisted Mind", "Fear & Blood", "Girl & Violence", "So Many Corpses", and "Handicapped Girl". Wow – creepy song titles! LP, Vinyl record album

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".

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

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".

DAMN!, indeed – Kendrick has yet to take even a small step down from the creative peak he's been riding for years – and takes another daring step forward with this strong, strident, no-mess-taking classic in the making! The surprise-announced DAMN! finds him taking on timely concerns – some longtime inherent to everyday racial, social, and class struggles issues in American life,and others that are purely personal. The production is diverse to a degree, but a bit straight forward compared to the sprawling, years-in-the-making To Pimp A Butterfly – all by design, as DAMN! is clearly made to sound fresh and urgent right now. But like all great musical art, it's built to stand the test of time. Includes guest producers, musicians and vocalists as varied as Thundercat, U2, Kamasi Washington, Kid Capri and Rihanna. Titles include "BLOOD.", "DNA.", "YAH.", "ELEMENT.", "LOYALTY." feat Rihanna, "PRIDE.", "LUST." with strings arranged by Kamasi Washington, "XXX." feat U2, "FEAR.", "GOD." and "DUCKWORTH."

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". 2LP version features a full bonus record of vocal versions – by Wailing Souls, Wayne Jarrett, Johnny Osbourne, and Michael Prophet!

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 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! Titles include "Bad Little Woman", "The Behemoth", "Three For Love", "Peepin & Hidin", "Gospel Zone", "High Blood Pressure", and "Tomorrow's Going To Be Another Day". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Carl WilsonYoungblood ... LP
Caribou, 1983. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A slept on solo effort from Carl Wilson of the Beach Boys – released in 1983 and a record brings some surprising touches to the production – harder-charging rave up guitars being the one that stands out – still with big hooks and Carl's instantly identifiable vocals! A left turn on the sunny, post 70s highway Beach Boys related projects, yet still in the family. Titles include "She's Mine", "Of The Times", "Young Blood", "If I Could Talk To Love", "One More Night Alone" and more, plus the bonus track "Givin You Up (Single edit)". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ WarYoungblood ... LP
United Artists, 1978. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
War did the music for this funky soundtrack to an early Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs film, and although most of the stuff on here is just typical War stuff, there's one track called "Flying Machine" that's a long funky chase scene-type track that's worth the price of the album alone! Other tracks include "The Kingsmen Sign", "Junk Yard", "Superdude", and "Youngblood". One of the best War LPs! LP, Vinyl record album

YoungbloodsRide The Wind ... LP
Warner/Raccoon, 1971. Very Good ... $14.99
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 ... $0.99
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".

✨✧ Black SabbathSabbath Bloody Sabbath (180 gram red & orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
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

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".

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

Nate LepineQuartet – Vortices ... LP
Ears & Eyes, 2016. New Copy ... $16.99
A really wonderful album from the hard-burning contemporary Chicago scene – a set that may not get the global attention as some other records on bigger labels, but one that's equally well-deserving of recognition! Tenorist Nate Lepine is at the head of the group, but the whole quartet is a very cohesive ensemble – working with this equally spaces sense of composition and freedom – very much in the spirit of the Chicago scene of players like Mike Reed or Josh Berman, but also with some of the newer, more personal energy we've really been feeling in recent years too! Nick Mazzarella plays alto sax in the group, and the pairing of horns is wonderful – interlocked at all the right moments, but bursting out with individual voices when needed – and given strong support by the subtle bass work of Clark Sommers, and the well-timed drums of Quin Kirchner. Titles include "Ice Shirt", "Youngblood", "Eve Yeti's Ready For Spring", "Aye Lads", "Hennies", and "The Grass Is Rizz". LP, Vinyl record album

Memphis SlimWorld's Foremost Blues Singer ... LP
Strand, 1961. Very Good ... $14.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Mongo SantamariaMongo Santamaria Explodes At The Village Gate ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $8.99
One of Mongo's best Columbia LPs, and a totally hard hitting live set recorded with a very strong Latin jazz feel! The group's got some of Mongo's best players ever – like Hubert Laws and Bobby Porcelli – and the album's got lots of hard horn solos, and a good good groove throughout. Cuts include "Mongoettes", "Bloodshot", "Philadelphia", and a 10 minute long version of "Afro Blue". Screamin, smokin, and one of the purest albums of Latin jazz that Mongo ever made!

VariousNorthern & Rare Soul Collector – Together For The First Time – Originally Unreleased ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
A stunning set of rare soul from the glory days of the Northern Soul years – and even more amazing because none of these tunes were ever issued at the time! Yet these aren't second-hand cuts that have lain in the vaults, nor the dregs of good recording sessions – and instead, these are killer tracks that finally saw the light of day on various reissues over the decades – years after their conception, but with enough space to have gotten them plenty of spins on later generations of Northern Soul dancefloors. The work is all wonderful – really top-shelf material that's right up there with Detroit or Philly classics – often recorded by artists you'll know from other great singles too. Titles include "Push A Little Harder" by The Metros, "Honey Please Stay" by United Four, "Turn Back The Hands Of Time" by Lonnie Youngblood, "I Wish You The World Of Happiness" by Shirley Turner, "I'm Not Afraid" by Sharon Scott, "You Only Live Twice" by Lorraine Chandler, "The Magic Touch" by Melba Moore, "It's Torture" by Maxine Brown, "Ooh It Hurts Me" by The Cavaliers, and "Hey Girl" by Porgy & The Monarchs.

Don't worry about the absence of Rick James here – as things are mighty tight, and right on the money – that wicked blend of funk and soul that got Lady T a great start right out of the box – still undeniably one of the most powerful one-woman moments in soul music! Teena wrote, arranged, and produced the whole thing – and tracks include "Light", "Jammin", "Out On A Limb", "Alibi", "Youngblood", "Lovergirl", and "My Dear Mr. Gaye". LP, Vinyl record album
