Blue BeatsBeatle Beat ... LP
Rock Beat, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 19.99
Not The Beatles, but a group who are trying to cash in on their fame – by showing a monstrous Beatle wig on the cover of the album, covering a horde of dancers – and by playing a whole host of instrumentals with a nod to the Brit Invasion! We're guessing the Blue Beats were some American studio combo – as the overall project doesn't have a real UK sound – and they've definitely got their chops, especially on the guitar lines – which are recorded with a nice dose of echo and a good deal of twang, and mixed in with stomping rhythms and the occasional keyboard line. Titles include "The Chocolate Pudding Slop", "The Swingin Spiders' Bo Diddley", "The Fat Kings' Twist", "The Broken Egg Frug", "The Cold Mashed Potato", and "The Big Shoe Twist".

✨✧ VariousAmericana Rock Your Soul Vol 2 – More Blue Eyed Soul & AOR Sounds From The Land Of The Free ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really soulful sounds from a set of unlikely sources – American grooves from the late 70s that weren't necessarily recorded as soul records – but which really fit in well with the best work of the time! The music here is from a host of obscure indie records – some funk, some jazz, some even rock – but always with a warmly soulful groove that's mighty darn nice – and which sparkles along with some of the best work of the time from much bigger names! If we were to go for a comparison, we might reach for the Fantasy Records/Bay Area scene of the time – especially its way of blending together different styles with a warmer mode and a jazzy finish – something that all the artists here really share. The set's a wonderful discovery – even nicer than the first volume – and we'd honestly never heard most of these cuts before. Titles include "Make Me Believe" by Archie James Cavanaugh, "Night Time Stars" by Joseph Nicoletti, "Hollywood" by Ray Camacho Band, "Hot Ice" by TR's Hot Ice, "Vaya Mulata" by Luc Cousineau, "There's A New Group In Town" by Breakaway, "A Million Stars" by Macky Feary Band, "Without You" by Steve Eaton, and "Here Is Where Your Love Belongs" by Jaye P Morgan.

Laff/Rock Beat, 1970s. New Copy 4 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A totally great collection of work from the Laff Records party label – home to some of the rawest, raunchiest soul-styled comedy records in the 70s!

Laurel Aitken (& Girlie)Scandal In A Brixton Market (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Pressure Drop/Pama (UK), 1969. Used ... $11.99
Another lost, but great chapter in the career of Laurel Aitken, originally issued on the Pama label, but brought back to light by the excellent Pressure Drop imprint. Aitken teams up with female foil Girlie on most of the original LP's tracks, and gets a helping hand from trombone great Rico Rodriguez on a couple too! The set's all bouncing rocksteady and early reggae, choice cuts from top to bottom and loaded up with a host of wonderful bonus material, too! 24 tracks in all, including "Scandal In A Brixton Market", "Stupid Married Man", "Tammering", "Have Mercy", "Night Cricket", "Teddy Bear", "Mr Soul", "babylon", "Stop The War In Vietnam", "Big Fight In Hell Stadsium", "Pussy Got Thirteen Life", "Blue Mink", "Moon Rock", "Cut Up Munno", "Nobody But Me", "The Best I Can", 'Reggae Popcorn" and "Pachanga" parts 1 and 2.

Georgie AuldDancing In The Land Of HI-FI ... LP
Mercury, 1956. Very Good ... $1.99
Plenty of dancing here – romping rhythms that are a nice change for Georgie Auld, and which make for a perfect foil for his deeper sounds on the tenor! The record's got a bit of Mercury Records rock in the mix – almost a Red Prysock approach at points, mixed with some of the sweeter swing of Georgie's roots – and other players include Ray Linn and Maynard Ferguson on trumpets, and Frank Rosolino on trombone. Titles include "Blue Lou", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "Rosetta", "Sweet Lorraine", "Prisoners Song", "Got A Date With An Angel", and "Too Marvelous For Words". LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Blue BlandTwo Steps From The Blues ... LP
Duke, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An incredible record from Bobby Blue Bland – and quite possibly the greatest one he ever made! The set's got an amazing something special that's unlike most other material of the time – a bit blues, but a lot of soul too – still with some echoes of R&B in the jazzier charts used for the backdrop, but presented with a rock-solid style that definitely points the way towards many sounds and styles to come in the 60s. And although Bland recorded many of these tracks as separate singles, there's a way they're put together here that makes the whole thing sound completely marvelous together – a really well-conceived track list that shows that Bobby's an even greater artist in the space of a full record. The arrangements are perfect, and Bobby's rough soulful voice is blended in this amazing way with killer horn arrangements that are far more sophisticated than most stuff that ever came after this, and which never get in the way, but only back up his deep emotion. The album's a motherlode of classics by the man, with gems that include "Two Steps From The Blues", "Cry Cry Cry", "I Don't Want No Woman", "I'm Not Ashamed", "Don't Cry No More", "Lead Me On", and "I Pity The Fool". And hell, even his version of "St James Infirmary" is pretty wonderful – something we never thought we'd say about that song. LP, Vinyl record album

Blue CheerVincebus Eruptum ... LP
Philips, 1968. Good+ ... $19.99
Archetypal heavy rock from Blue Cheer – one of THE underground classics of the late 60s! Guitars are firmly, very jammingly in force – and the set's produced to perfection by the legendary Abe "Voco" Kesh. Powerful, fuzzed out, blues based fire at it's most forceful and exhilarating – ultimately setting the bar too high for the group, or altered versions of it, to ever again approach! Titles include their great cover of "Summertime Blues", plus "Doctor Please", "Out Of Focus", "Parchment Farm", "Second Time Around", and "All Night Long". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Blue MinkReal Mink ... LP
Philips, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $6.99
One of the first albums from Blue Mink – a seminal rock/soul crossover act who really broke bigger in the 70s! The album's strongest asset is singer Madeline Bell, who works in duet form with group leader Roger Cook on most numbers – bringing the record a strongly soulful component that really helps sell some of its beat group leanings. And in the instrumentation department, the group here have plenty of touches from the late 60s Brit beat scene – including strong presence of organ and electric piano, lots of jamming guitar, and an overall approach to the groove that's strongly influenced by American soul and R&B, but which also has jazzy touches. Titles include "Good Morning Freedom", "Gimme Reggae", "Can You Feel It Baby", "Our World", "Sweet & Sour", "I Lose The Game", and "Silk What?". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Brand NubianIn God We Trust ... LP
Rush/Elektra, 1992. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $21.99
Early 90s greatness from Brand Nubian! Once Puba left the group, we were all ready for this sophomore effort to just fall flat. But Sadat X and Lord Jamar aquit themselves nicely on the mic, and the beats are head-noddingly satisfying too, no doubt due to Dante Ross's guidance. And they don't let up on their hardcore 5% stance either. Classic! Includes the classic singles "Allah U Akbar", "Love Me Or Leave Me Alone" and "Punks Jump Up To Get Beat Down", plus "Travel Jam", "Steal Ya 'Ho", "Steady Bootleggin'", "Black Star Line", "Meaning Of The 5%", "Ain't No Mystery", "Pass The Gat", 'Allah & Justice", "The Godz. . .", "Brand Nubian Rock The Set" and "Black & Blue".

Hadda BrooksQueen Of The Boogie & More! ... CD
Modern/Ace (UK), Late 40s. New Copy ... $16.99
A wonderful compilation the late 40s Modern recordings of piano player, singer and all around musical pioneer Hadda Brooks – with all the tracks from the original Queen Of The Boogie 78s package – and 18 additional tracks from the period! Hadda is a lovely singer, and the set has a number of sweet vocal numbers, but her most lasting impact is no doubt her easygoing, but masterful boogie piano playing. Fittingly, there's a huge number of instrumental treasures here, and it's really tough to imagine a lot of the great R&B and 50s rock and roll piano taking hold if trailblazers like Hadda Brooks didn't get the ball rolling! Includes "Juke Box Boogie", "Bully Wully Boogie", "Boogie At The Bandstand", "Night Life", "Sleepy Time Gal", "Humoresque Boogie", "Strollin' 'N' Rollin'", "Basin Street Blue", "Moonglow", ""743 Blues", "Hungara (Gypsy)", "Greig's Concerto Boogie In A Minor", "Stardust" and more. 24 tracks in all – a solid dozen of which were recorded for Modern in the late 40s, but were never before released!

Blue Note, 1953. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
Clifford Brown only recorded a handful of sides for Blue Note – but all of the best ones are included in this excellent album – a full length set that culls together Brown's material from the 10" years, issued as a memorial to his early death in 1956! Side one features Brown with the modernist Gigi Gryce on flute and alto sax – plus Charlie Rouse on tenor, John Lewis on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Art Blakey on drums – a lineup that has a strong sense of soul, balanced with a dose of modernism – on titles that include the classic "Hymn to the Orient" – worth the price of the album alone – plus "Easy Living", "Cherokee", "Wail Bait", and "Minor Mood". Side two features an equally sharp group – with Lou Donaldson on some excellent alto, and the great Elmo Hope on piano – on titles that include "Brownie Speaks", "De Dah", "Cookin", "You Go To My Head", and "Carving The Rock".

✨✧ De La SoulGrind Date (with bonus track) ... LP
Sanctuary, 2004. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
The first post-Tommy Boy De La Soul album – and it's a winner! We've been on board with De La throughout their long career – anyone with open ears must know that even their spottiest records (and this is NOT one of those) feature at least a handful of treasure tracks. Grind Date is easily the best later De La Soul album, and brevity is as key to the album as the group's proven longevity. 13 tracks, 49 minutes, no skits. Two songs in you'll find the stellar "Verbal Clap", one of J Dilla's finest productions ever, with precise on beat rhymes by De La. Other highlights include "He Comes" with Ghostface, a soulful track that would sound just as great on Ghost's Supreme Clientele. Most critics will say this is De La's best album since Stakes Is High. We'll say it's better! Featuring production by Dave West, J Dilla, Madlib and 9th Wonder – plus guest appearances by Yummy, Ghostface, Carl Thomas, MF Doom, Common and others. Other tracks include "The Future", "Much More" feat Yummy, "The Grind Date", "Shopping Bags", "Days Of Our Lives" with Common, "Come On Down", "Rock Co. Kane Flow" featuring MF Doom and more – plus the bonus "Shoomp" with Sean Paul. LP, Vinyl record album

Cornell DupreeTeasin' (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1974. Used ... $22.99
The first album as a leader by guitarist Cornell Dupree – but one that was recorded after years of jazz, soul, and rock session and sideman work during the 60s and 70s! It's great to finally hear Cornell get out in front of the mix – hitting those lean, stretched-out lines that always made other folks' records sound so great – but which are even better here in the laidback, soulful setting of the album! Other players on the date include familiar partners Bernard Purdie on drums, David Newman on saxophones, Richard Tee on keyboards, Chuck Rainey on bass, and Ralph MacDonald on percussion – and although recorded in New York, there's plenty of southern influences bubbling through the instrumental tracks. Titles include"Teasin", "Jamaican Lady", "Feel All Right", "Blue Nocturne", and "How Long Will It Last". CD

Columbia/Legacy, 1950. Used ... $5.99
True masterpieces from Duke Ellington – some of his greatest compositions, presented here in an early Columbia LP that offers up "uncut concert arrangements" – clearly grooming a new side of Duke for the long-playing audience! The recordings were made in 1950, with players who include Johnny Hodges and Paul Gonzalves on saxes, Ray Nance and Cat Anderson on trumpets, and Tyree Glenn and Quentin Jackson on trombones. The tracks include "Mood Indigo", "Sophisticated Lady", "The Tattooed Bride" and "Solitude". Includes 3 bonus tracks – shorter numbers, but great ones – "Vagabonds", "Smada", and "Rock Skippin At The Blue Note". CD

Fairport ConventionNine ... LP
A&M, 1973. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Fairport Convention's 9th album in a relatively short history, and a homey little set that often has the group working strongly in a folk-based mode! Instrumentation is a mixture of electric and acoustic guitars, plus mandolin, violin, and assorted percussion – brought in at just the right points to offset the album's few more rock-based tunes. The overall mood is relatively dark, and most tunes are originals, penned with a mix of traditional and conventional themes – and titles include "The Hexhamshire Lass", "Polly On The Shore", "To Aretha From Prison", "Tokyo", "Bring Em Down", "Pleasure & Pain", and "Possibly Parsons Green".

Ronnie FosterOn The Avenue ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
Massive keyboard work from Ronnie Foster – one of his sweet funky 70s sets for Blue Note – and a killer all the way through! Ronnie plays a host of cool keys – Hammond, clavinet, and moog – and he's working here with tight production from George Benson, who really helps find a new soulful edge for Foster's music – plus great horns from Alfred Ellis, who helps bring a bit of his James Brown influence into the mix! Some of the best cuts feel like blacksploitation funk – with Foster taking long solos over some great instrumental grooves – often with the same offbeat twists and turns, and cool colors he brought to his Two Headed Freap album. Titles include "On The Avenue", "To See A Smile", "First Light", "Serenade To A Rock", and a nice version of Stevie Wonder's "Golden Lady". CD

Kim Fowley & OthersTechnicolor Grease – Lost Treasures From The Vaults Vol 4 – 1959 to 1969 ... CD
Norton, Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... $8.99
Maybe the coolest volume so far in this all-amazing series – a heady dip into the farther reaches of the Kim Fowley universe! This time around, Kim's only the performer on a few track – and most numbers are by obscure groups, both soul and rock – originally recorded by Fowley for a variety of different labels, but instantly lost to the shifting sands of time! The music is every bit as mad as some of Fowley's more famous productions – and in the best Norton Records way, there's a real focus here on offbeat tunes and very odd musical moments. Kim himself supervised the project, and wrote some excellent notes for the whole thing – and titles include "Moonlight In Vermont" by The Crenshaws, "In This World So Small" by Althea & The Memories, "Hello Schoolteacher" by Four After Fives, "Justine" by The Rangers, "People Let's Freak Out" by Belfast Gypsies, "The Story Of Susie" by Bill Woods, "Atlantis" by Blue Bells, "Vito & The Hands" by Vito & The Hands, and "Pop Art 66" by Kim Fowley himself!

Sweet remixes from Robert Glasper's Black Radio album – all of them tunes that sound even more soulful than the originals! Given that the core record itself was a bit of a "remix" – Glasper's keyboards, funky beats, and hip contributions from a range of soul singers – the expansion of those sounds works perfectly here – stretching out the wonderful mix of modes through some sweet tracks that still leave plenty of room for Robert's keyboards. The set includes a totally great 9 minute "Dillalude #2", plus "Twice (?uestlove's Twice Baked rmx)", "Afro Blue (9th Wonder's blue light basement rmx with Phonte)", "Black Radio (Pete Rock rmx)", "Consequences Of Jealousy (Georgia Anne Muldrow's sassy geemix)", and "Letter To Hermione (Robert Glasper & Jewels rmx)".

A really special Japanese-only package – designed to accompany Robert Glasper's tour of Japan! The set features 3 CDs from his Experiment albums – the first of which is Black Radio, an album that features loads of Glasper's enigmatic piano lines – those fluid, elliptical sounds that are always filled with plenty of soul and imagination – matched here with guest vocals from a host of key talents – including Erykah Badu, Lalah Hathaway, Musiq Soulchild, Meshell Ndegeocello, Bilal, and Lupe Fiasco! One of the best musical moments we've heard from Blue Note in years – with titles that include "Always Shine", "Move Love", "Ah Yeah", "Lift Off", "Afro Blue", "Cherish The Day", "Black Radio", and "Letter To Hermione". Next is the follow-up – Black Radio 2 – a set that makes us fall in love with his music even more than before – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given that we've loved him for years! Glasper's working here in his collaborative Black Radio format – but at a level that's even more perfected than the initial album of this project – a really groundbreaking blend of live jazz instrumentation and underground soul inspiration – served up by Robert's core quartet, with help from a whole host of wonderful guest singers! The singers are the icing on the cake – a lineup that includes Faith Evans, Dwele, Jill Scott, Common, Lupe Fiasco, Lalah Hathaway, Norah Jones, and others – on titles that include "Calls", "Worries", "I Stand Alone", "What Are We Doing", "Trust", "Yet To Find", "You Own Me", "Somebody Else", "Persevere", and "Let It Ride". Last up is Black Radio Recovered – sweet remixes from Robert Glasper's Black Radio album – all of them tunes that sound even more soulful than the originals! Given that the core record itself was a bit of a "remix" – Glasper's keyboards, funky beats, and hip contributions from a range of soul singers – the expansion of those sounds works perfectly here – stretching out the wonderful mix of modes through some sweet tracks that still leave plenty of room for Robert's keyboards.

Prestige, 1972. Very Good+ ... $9.99
One of Dexter's most solid albums on Prestige – and a great set cut at the Van Gelder studios with a rock-solid American lineup that includes Cedar Walton, Freddie Hubbard, Buster Williams, and Billy Higgins. The ensemble groove is a lot tighter than on some of Gordon's solo-heavy European sessions – and in a way, the record hearkens back to some of the greatness of the Blue Note days. Titles include "Milestones", "Scared To Be Alone", "We See", and "The Group". LP, Vinyl record album
