Junior WellsYou're Tuff Enough (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Mercury/Blue Rock (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $14.99
Some of our favorite work ever from the legendary Junior Wells – a singer known best to most folks for his work on the Chicago blues scene, but also a surprisingly soulful talent on this great album for Mercury's Blue Rock subsidiary! Blue Rock lived for just a short time, but cut some excellent work in the process – and like this album, much of their releases aimed to blend blues material with some of the grittier, funkier side of Chicago in the late 60s – making for sock-soul sessions that can rival some of the best Chess Records 45s at the time! No surprise, the album's filled with work from chess talents who include Monk Higgins and Charles Stepney – who handle arrangements along with Wells – and titles include the killer classic "Up in Heah", plus "It's All Soul", "Gonna Cramp Your Style", "Where Did I Go Wrong?", "Sweet Darling Think It Over", "The Hippies Are Trying", "Junior's Groove", and "You're The One". CD features loads of bonus tracks – 10 more titles that include "Another Mule Is Kicking In Your Stall", "I Just Wanna Groove", "I'm Your Gravy Train", "What Is That You Got", and "You Better Watch Yourself".

✨✧ Junior WellsJunior Wells Sings Live At The Golden Bear ... LP
Mercury/Blue Rock, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lost gem from the late 60s Mercury/Blue Rock years – and a live recording by Junior Wells that's a lot harder than his studio work for the label! The setting is the Golden Bear nightclub – and the feel of the album is very much in the raw electric Chicago mode of the mid 60s, the style that inspired countless rock and soul artists at the time, and which was still pretty intense at the time of the album. The record includes versions of Willie Dixon's "I'm Ready" and "My Babe", plus covers of "Driving Wheel", "Please, Please, Please", and "The Goat". Plus it's got front cover art by Victor Moscoso.

Blue ThingsBlue Things Story Vol 1 ... LP
Cicadelic, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Mind blowing mid 60s rock from The Blue Things – gritty yet melodic rock from Kansas scene that's rumbling, a bit raucous, and totally killer – and it still sounds great! This is the first ever compilation of the group's 64-65 recordings, first released in 1987 and was out of print since since '89 – we're imagining these nuggets from 2 decades earlier will sound incredible 2 decades from now, too! Titles include "Punkin Doodle", "Just Two Days Ago", "Baby My Heart", "Silver & Gold", "P's & Q's", "Pretty Things-Oh", "Your Turn To Cry", "Desert Wind", "Nancy Whisky", "La Do Da Da" and more.

Clifford BrownMemorial Album (Blue Note) ... LP
Blue Note, 1953. Very Good ... $129.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono 63rd Street pressing, with deep groove, RVG & 9M etch, and ear. Vinyl has a mark that clicks on "Wail Bait". Cover has some edge wear, with a small name in pen and a vintage price sticker on back.)

Kenny Burrell5 Original Albums (Introducing/Kenny Burrell/Blue Lights Vols 1 & 2/Five Spot Cafe) (5CD set) ... CD
Blue Note (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy 5CD ... $21.99
An amazing early run of music from guitarist Kenny Burrell – five albums in a single package, each with LP-style covers! First up is his Blue Note debut – Introducing Kenny Burrell – arguably one of the greatest Kenny Burrell albums ever! Unlike some of Kenny's other sessions, which hide his guitar in arrangements that are a bit too complicated – this one's a nicely stripped-down album that sets his hollow electric in a group with Tommy Flanagan on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, Kenny Clarke on drums, and Candido on conga. The tracks are nicely laidback, and Kenny hits some nice deep grooves on cuts like "Fugue N Blues", "Takeela", and "Delilah". Plus, the album also includes a totally cool percussion-only track – "Rhythmorama", which is a duet between Kenny Clarke and Candido! Next is the self-titled Kenny Burrell – Blue Note 1543 – early genius from Kenny – a set that features the guitarist sounding beautiful in a variety of settings, all of them great! The format really mixes things up nicely – almost showing a more diverse Kenny than in later years – as one track is solo, and the others feature quartet, quintet, and sextet lineups – with players who include JR Monterose or Frank Foster on tenor, Tommy Flanagan or Bobby Timons on piano, Oscar Pettiford or Sam Jones on bass, Kenny Dorham on trumpet, and Kenny Clarke or Shadow Wilson on drums. The solo track is a great version of "But Not For Me" – and other titles include "Mexico City", "Cheeta", "Phinupi", and "Now See How You Are". Next are the two records that make up Blue Lights Vols 1 & 2 – material that catches Kenny in the perfect Blue Note jam session mode of the late 50s – one used also with Jimmy Smith, and which features a number of the label's star players hitting hard with the main soloist. Players on the two volume set include Duke Jordan or Bobby Timmons piano, Junior Cook and Tina Brooks tenor, Louis Smith trumpet, and Art Blakey on Drums. The cuts have a very open-ended blowing session feel, and Kenny comes through surprisingly well, really picking up steam on a way you don't always hear in more restrained recordings. Titles include "Yes Baby", "Scotch Blues", "Rock Salt", "Chuckin", "Phinupi", and "Caravan". Last up is On View At The Five Spot Cafe – a smoking live session, and one that's got a bit more of an edge than some of his other records from the time! Kenny's guitar still has that impeccable tone throughout – but it's also matched by some wonderful tenor from the great Tina Brooks – making one of his few key Blue Note appearances here – in a massively cooking group that also features some piano from Bobby Timmons on three of the album's five tracks (Roland Hanna plays on the two others) – plus drums from Art Blakey, and bass from Ben Tucker – a pair wo work together wonderfully to create some really great grooves. Kenny himself seems to pick up great energy in the setting – and titles include "Lady Be Good", "Birk's Works", "36-23-36", and "Hallelujah". CD

Toshinori Kondo Tibetan Blue Air Liquid BandKhchyu Fuyuu ... CD
Art Union/Solid (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $28.99
Trumpeter Toshinori Kondo may have cut some avant-oriented material over the years – but this set is a different sort of record – one that's cut with his Tibetan Blue Air Liquid Band, in a playful mix of rhythms, tones, and jazz! The approach is maybe post-fusion, inflected with a bit of art rock inspiration – still with plenty of jazz-based solos, but also a very unconventional approach to the rhythms, which are sometimes sunny and bright, sometimes a bit more edgey. Titles include "Raku Raku Raku", "Light Footwork Song", "7 Time", "A Crack In The Sky", and "Setouchi Blue". CD

✨✧ Blue MitchellBring It Home To Me (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note (Spain), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
Genius work from trumpeter Blue Mitchell – one of his most solid sides as a leader from the 60s, and a well-deserved treasure in the Blue Note catalog! The album's quite different than the straight soul jazz of Blue's early days on Riverside – or the more arranged dates of the late 60s – and it features him moving in a soulful, lyrical, modal style – quite similar to Horace Silver in conception, but with a fresh execution that's mighty nice – and which marks Mitchell as one of the fresher trumpet voices of his generation! The whole group's great, too – and the lineup includes Junior Cook on tenor, Blue's old band mate from Horace Silver's group – plus Harold Mabern on piano, who really helps shape the sound of the record, Gene Taylor on bass and Billy Higgins on drums. Tracks include gems from Mitchell, Jimmy Heath, and Tom McIntosh – titles that include "Bring It Home To Me", "Blues 3 For 1", "Port Rico Rock", and "Ginger Bread Boy". LP, Vinyl record album

Ike QuebecComplete Blue Note 45 Sessions Of Ike Quebec (Mosaic) ... CD
Blue Note/Mosaic, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 2CDs ... $69.99
The "flipside" of Ike Quebec's legendary run of albums for Blue Note – a huge set of material recorded only as 45 singles during his same stretch at the label! Although Quebec's work as a soulful tenorist has been well documented and reissued over the years on albums like Blue & Sentimental and Heavy Soul, Ike also cut a fair number of singles aimed at the jukebox and radio crowds of the time – tunes that were more in the gutsy tenor and organ mode recorded by labels like Prestige or Chess, and which never made it onto any of the full-length sets for Blue Note! This great little package brings together all of Ike's 26 tracks recorded for 45s in the late 50s and early 60s – material that features organ on most numbers, played by either Ike Quebec, Sir Charles Thompson, or the enigmatic Edwin Swanston. Quebec's tone and phrasing is similar to his Blue Note LP work of the period, but there's also a more relaxed, and more punctuated feel to these recordings – one that's not as rough or raw as other jukebox tenor stars of the time, but which still steps out past the usual Blue Note poise, especially on the original numbers. Some tracks were briefly issued on the 80s collection With A Song In My Heart, and in a Mosaic box – but this is the first proper Blue Note album of the material. Titles include "Buzzard Lope", "Zonky", "Blue Monday", "Later For The Rock", "Dear John", "Blue Friday", "Ill Wind", "Mardis Gras", "Everything Happens To Me", "Me N Mabe", "All The Way", "Intermezzo", "All Of Me", and "Imagination".

VariousAcross The Tracks Vol 2 – More Nashville R&B & Rock N' Roll ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
The city of Nashville's not just known for country music – as the Tennessee scene has always been a hotbed for other styles too – as you'll hear in this killer collection of R&B, vocal group material, and early soul! As with the first volume, the track selection is really revelatory – pulled from the Champion/Calvert family of labels, which often didn't get much exposure on a nationwide level in the 50s – and handled with the usual Ace Records ear for great sound and detailed notes on the music – which almost makes the whole thing feel like a special history package on this under-documented scene – but one with music that's every bit as vibrant today as it was when first recorded! The set's got 30 tracks in all – including rare work by artists who'd break bigger later for other labels – and titles include "Love Me A Long Long Time" by Ted Jarrett, "Rent's Too High" by Cliff Butler, "Three Times Seven" by Larry Butler, "If Things Don't Change" by Gene Allison, "Blue Night" by Jimmy beck, "Lord You Know" by The Fairfield Four, "No Fool No More" by Charles Walker & The Daffodils, "Six Days A Week" by The Kinglets, "Real Good Man" by Murfreesboro, "The Same Thing" by Arthur Adams, "Love You So" by Earl Gaines, and "It's Almost Sundown" by Roscoe Shelton.

VariousHollywood Rock N Roll – 12 Rare Rockabilly Tracks (LP sleeve pressing) ... CD
Chiswick/Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $8.99 14.98
Rare American rockabilly, served up in a classic British compilation from the late 70s – a package on the mostly-punk Chiswick label, and a good nod to the way that UK scene was paying some attention to the rootsier rock in the US! The work here is mostly from the Era Records label, and represents the rougher-edges of the rockabilly genre at its best – tunes that bump along on heavy bass, romping drums, and stiffly strummed guitar – often topped with vocals that are heavy on the twang, in a way that really works great with the sing-songy lyrics. Titles include "Blue Jeans" and "Would Ja" by Glen Glenn, "Don't Push" by Don Deal, "Hollywood Party" and "Ezactly" by Dick Bush, "Topsy Turvy" by Ben Joe Zeppa, "Great Shakin Fever" by Dorsey Burnette, and "She Will Come Back To Me" by Alis Lesley.

✨✧ Bobby Blue BlandTwo Steps From The Blues ... LP
Duke, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

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 JugBlue Jug ... CD
Capricorn/Universal (Japan), 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most obscure records from the early 70s run on Capricorn Records – and a set with nicely deep corners that really live up to the promise of the label! These guys look like a bunch of hillbillies on the cover – an aspect that's maybe inferred by the "jug" in their name, too – but they work in some of the more sophisticated blends of styles coming out of the southern scene at the time – bits of rock and country, plus maybe a bit of soul, all wrapped around each other at the American Studios in Memphis – and delivered with a simple, no-nonsense quality that's neither trying to be too earnest, nor trying to crack the charts. These guys come across exactly as they appear on the cover – unabashed, and really only trying to live in a world where they're comfortable with themselves – which makes for a mighty nice album overall. Tracks include "Sugar Man", "Education", "Hard Luck Jimmy", "When The Moon Rises", "A Miner's Song", "Take A Little Time", and "Come On To Town Ned". CD

Teldec/Long Hair (Germany), 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A group that's really on fire with this searing second album – the kind of record that could easily take on the biggest American hard rock heavyweights of the early 70s – but which unfortunately never found the fame it deserved! The set's got a brashness that matches the best of the growing hard rock generation – and razor-sharp instrumentation that weaves the fast-moving guitar and keyboard lines together perfectly – and although German, these guys wisely top their songs with English language lyrics that really help them soar! The whole thing's ripe for rediscovery, and may definitely have you challenging some of the longer-held records in your collection – a masterpiece throughout, with titles that include "Everything's Alright", "Blue Apple", "Rock Scene", "Don't Waste Your Time", "Psalm", and "Left The Past Behind".

Titles include "My House", "Underneath The Bottle", "Average Guy", "The Heroine", "Heavenly Arms", "The Day John Kennedy Died", and "The Blue Mask". LP, Vinyl record album

Blazing 60s & 70s string-shredding mastery from Japan's great guitar instrumentals guru Takeshi Terauchi – whose playing matches the greatest 50s & 60s rock guitar gurus in both dexterous ability and pulpy mood setting! Takeshi put his own unique spin on the chugging styles of the period – hard-charging twang, surf and beat in the 60s, and distorted spacey and funky rock later on in the 70s – all of it pretty amazing! Includes "Ganroku Hanami Odori", "Rising Stars", "Sado Okesa", "The Clamour Of The Sun", "South Pier" and "Summer Boogaloo" by Takeshi Terauchi & The Bunnys, plus "Hoshi Eno Tabeji (Journey To The Stars", "Sa No Sa", "Touryanse", "Nambuzaka Yuki No Wakare", "Tsugaru Eleki Bushi" and many more by Takeshi Terauchi & Blue Jeans. 25 tracks on the CDversion.

Tracks include "Red Bluejeans & A Pony Tail", "Hold Me, Hug Me, Rock Me", "Cat Man", "Cruisin'", "Pink Thunderbird" and more! CD

Big Beat (UK), Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mad sounds from the late 60s world of Japanese pop – a mindblowing, ear-opening batch of singles we never would have gotten our hands on otherwise! The music here feels like sounds coming out of some backroom jukebox in a Nikkatsu "new action" film – or maybe the kind of offbeat pop that Quentin Tarantino might throw into a soundtrack – but there's also a much deeper range of sounds going on than you might expect, with wonderfully clever instrumentation, and lots of surprisingly heartfelt passages in the vocals! And sure, the language might be a barrier – but there's a really universal sense of appeal to this music – a variant of 60s soul and pop, focused through a different sort of lense – and the instrumentation alone is great – with wicked guitars, Hammond, and other garagey touches! As usual with Ace, the whole thing's supported with nicely detailed notes that tell the whole story behind these wonderful lost gems (we like this one even better than the fab first volume) – and titles include "Namida No Go Go" by Emy Jackson & Blue Comets, "Koi Gurui" by Chiyo Okumura, "Tokyo No Hito" by The Peanuts, "Warui Kuse" by Kazumi Yasui, "Boy & Girl" by Akiko Wada, "Namida No Mori No Monogatari" by Akiko Nakamura, "Saike Na Machi" by Reiko Mari, "Bazazz No 1" by Kayoko Ishuu, and "Furi Furi 5" by Linda Yamamoto.

Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Chuck Berry may have been a hell of a hitmaker on his own – but he also helped lots of other folks hit the heights, too – thanks to the fantastic songs he penned over the years! Berry's original versions are the stuff of early rock and roll gold – but the tunes here take off in all sorts of directions – from rockabilly to country, garage, psych, soul, and even a bit of folk as well – served up by a surprisingly large amount of artists you might not never associate with Chuck's music! The package is definitely one of the most striking in the "songwriter" series from Ace Records – and like the others, it's done with a similar sort of depth – including notes on all the many unusual records included in the collection. Titles include "Roll Over Beethoven" by Helen Dixon, "Around & Around" by Swinging Blue Jeans, "Nadine" by The Bunch, "I'm Talking About You" by The Remains, "Oh Baby Doll" by The Pretty Things, "Come On" by Ian Gomm, "Memphis" by Don Covay, "You Never Can Tell" by John Prine, "The Promised Land" by Dave Edmunds, "Beautiful Delilah" by The Count Bishops, "Back In The USA" by MC5, "You Can't Catch Me" by Sleepy LaBeef, "Sweet Little Sixteen" by The Hollies, "Almost Grown" by Syndicate Of Sound, "Too Much Monkey Business" by Elvis Presley, and "No Money Down" by John Hammond.

Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Groovy gals from 60s France – a power-packed array of Parisian pop nuggets that goes way beyond most other compilations of this nature! Some of the big names are here, but there's way more obscure numbers too – the cool kind of French femmes that made a bit splash during the "yeh yeh" generation, with a mix of the rough and the sweet that few other girl singers could ever hope to touch! There's a really special mod sort of energy here – vocals that push out strongly, yet never succumb to emotional cliches of American and British singers – and backings that are always tight and groovy, but in a jaunty, jerky way that's quite different than straight ahead rock. The mix of modes is completely sublime – just the sort of music that still really sends us after all these years – and titles include "J'Ai Des Problemes Decidement" by Violaine, "Hymne Au Soleil" by Pussy Cat, "Attends Ou Va-T'En" by France Gall, "La Fermeture Eclair" by Delphine, "Comme Tu Es Jeune" by Liz Brady, "Sous Le Soleil Exactement" by Anna Karina, and "Ecoutez" by Elsa.
