Ray Camacho BandReach Out ... CD
Creole Stream (Japan), Early 80s. New Copy ... $15.99
Brilliant brown-eyed soul from Ray Camacho – an artist who was previously known for more border-styled work with his Teardrops band, but who steps out here with a surprisingly great blend of electric jazz and boogie! The approach is wonderful – a real re-direction of Ray's earlier groove into even more soulful territory – handled with that unique fusion that was happening in just a few of the best Texas spots, like the scene in Austin at the time. The album's equal parts soul and funk, but still has a few Latin roots too – and had this gem come out on Fantasy Records at the time, it would have pushed Ray and group into much headier territory. But we're also happy the set's been undiscovered for so many years (consider it our little secret) – and titles include "Reach Out", "Diggin Deep", "Shake What You Got", "Nobody But You", "Nothing But A Party", and "What A Day".

Lionel HamptonHallelujah Hamp ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
One of Lionel Hampton's great small combo sides for Verve from the 50s – done mostly with accompaniment from a trio of Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, and Buddy Rich – plus the addition of guitar from Herb Ellis on a few of the album's shorter tracks. It's the longer ones that are really the best, though – loose takes of "Tenderly", "Hamp's Boogie Woogie", and "Hallelujah" that really get at the inventive power of Hampton during his ever-popular live dates. Shorter tunes are nice too, but a bit less compelling – and titles include "A Foggy Day" and "Honeysuckle Rose". LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve Inc pressing with deep groove. Cover has clear tape along a split bottom seam & some moderate wear.)

✨✧ Wynonie HarrisDon't You Want To Rock – The King & Deluxe Acetate Series ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 40s. New Copy 2CD ... $21.99
Some of the greatest, most influential rhythm & blues ever recorded – the seminal R&B recordings the great Wynonie Harris cut for King Records – plus a second CD of rare alternate takes! Wynonie paved the way for a huge number of artists to come, but even if we're going to sidestep his trailblazing legacy, the recordings are jaw-droppingly great – really raw, full of fire, and often with a gritty lyrical approach that made Harris one of the key figures in the development of rock – with an attitude towards sex and drinking that could still make your grandmother blush! The backdrops are largely made up of a piano, horns, and the thumping bass and drums rhythm section – a perfect foil for Wynonie's voice, which is always front and center – seizing your attention in full, whether the cut is a bluesy lament or sly come on. Plus, the package pulls all the music from the original acetates – essentially the "master tapes" used by King Records in the pre-tape years – with titles that include "Love is Like Rain", "Rose Get Your Clothes", "I Like My Baby's Pudding", "Baby Shame On You", "Blowin' To California", "I Want My Fanny Brown", "Wynonie's Boogie", "Blowin' To California", "All She Wants To Do Is Rock", "Oh Babe", and "Teardrops From My Eyes" with the Lucky Millinder Orchestra. 48 tracks on 2CDs!

John Lee Hooker, Albert King, & OthersKing Strings – King/Federal/DeLuxe Guitar Grooves 1949 to 1962 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
King/Sundazed, 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $19.99 21.98
Guitar-heavy genius from one of the most important labels of the postwar years – the legendary King Records, home to James Brown and a heck of a lot of other great musicians too! This package focuses on the contributions that King made towards revolutionizing the sound of the electric guitar in the 50s – and chooses an ultra-hip batch of tracks that range from blues to R&B, and really come across with a hell of a lot of fire all these many years later! A few cuts have vocals, the rest are all instrumentals – and the tracks either feature a key guitarist as a leader, or groups that have a crucial electric player in the lineup. Titles include "San Ho Zay" by Freddie King, "Let's Rock" by Johnny Otis with Johnny Guitar Watson, "Dyna Flow" by Albert King, "Steam Roller" by Mickey Baker, "Louisiana Hop" by Pete Guitar Lewis, "After Hours" by Jimmy Nolen, "Stomp Boogie" by Texas Slim, "Space Guitar" by Young John Watson, "Floyd's Guitar Blues" by Bill Doggett, "Gainesville" by Roy Gaines, and "The Big Push" by Cal Green. LP, Vinyl record album
(Great heavy vinyl – with bonus insert too!)

✨✧ Boogaloo Joe JonesRight On Brother ... LP
Prestige, 1970. Very Good+ ... $44.99
A fantastic album of funky jazz guitar – by one of the best players in the genre! This is Ivan's first truly sublime album – a set that showed the world that he was easily one of the greatest jazz guitarists of his generation – able to spin out single-note jams with a speed and dexterity that few others could match! The groove here is totally great and very righteous – heavy drums from Bernard Purdie, wailing organ from Charles Earland, and saxophone from Rusty Bryant – all cooking together in the best early 70s Prestige jazz funk mode! Titles include "Right On", "Brown Bag", "Things Ain't What They Used To Be", and "Poppin". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has a bit of light pen on back, but is nice overall.)

Guy Morris & BandHot Pants Party/Cool It ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), 2005. New Copy ... $7.99
A heck of a great little party – even without the Hot Pants! Guy Morris grooves it here in a stone James Brown mode – socking with the bass on the beats, and really going for a heavy sound overall. The tune's incredibly catchy – somewhere between sock boogaloo soul and deeper funk – and Guy's warmer vocals over the top give the tune a unique feel of its own! "Cool It" follows in a similar heavy groove – lots of horns blasting out the theme while funky guitars riff and scratch underneath. Guy sits out the vocals on this one – letting the instruments take the tune to some really groovy places! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Smoky BabeWay Back In The Country Blues – The Lost Dr Oster Recordings ... LP
Arhoolie, 1960/1961. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Rare recordings of Robert "Smokey Babe" Brown – a guitarist who was born in the delta during the height of the early blues years, and who still held onto the rootsy style strongly in the 60s! The tracks have surprisingly high fidelity – way better than usual for field recordings of this nature and vintage, as the subtle phrasings of Brown's work on the strings of the guitar are captured beautifully – almost with a fluid style at times that's more folk, but an overall execution and vocal approach that's pure blues all the way. The set features 13 tracks, all recorded by Harry Oster in Scotland, Louisiana – and titles include "Bad Luck & Trouble", "Chicago Bound", "If I Had Listened To What My Mama Say", "Boogie Gal", "Goin Home Blues", "I'm Goin Home On The Morning Train", and "On Mr Walter's Farm".

SonzeiraBrasil Bam Bam Bass – Outtakes & Remakes – Curated With Love ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2015. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 17.98
A great second helping of work from Gilles Peterson's Sonzeira project – one that features outtakes that didn't make it on the original album, and some remixes and remakes too – all of which continue the warmly collaborative vibe of the project! The music is awash in acoustic elements – especially percussion – but also mixed with lots of the cool, contemporary styles that Gilles has been giving us on his radio show and Brownswood label for years – all in a cross-cultural vibe that's a bit like his recent projects in Cuba! And as with the main album, this is hardly low-end bossa-remix work – and instead a really thoughtful reworking of styles that comes from a strong love of the original music, with a great ear towards new generations. Titles include "Plum Blossom", "Mystery Of Man (4hero rmx)", "Um Toque (alt master boogie)", "Xi Ba Ba (Kyodai rmx)", "Brasil Pandeiro (Drumagick's beach mix)", "Nana (Sunlightsquare rmx)", "Aquarela Do Brasil (Mark E rmx)", "Ele E Ela (Werkha rmx)", "Ultrastellar (Chassol rmx)", "Xi Ba Ba (Atjazz Edit)", "Bam Bam Bam (Simbad acid dub)", and "Sambaio (Demus percapella)". 2CD package, too!

Watsonian InstituteMaster Funk/Extra Disco Perception ... CD
DJM/Robinsongs (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy ... $14.99
Funky treasures back to back – two Watsonian albums from the late 70s on one CD! Master Funk is a great Johnny Guitar Watson side project – a set not billed directly to his name on the front, but which has all the great hallmarks of the best Watson albums from the 70s! Johnny produced, wrote songs, played, and sung on the record – but there's also an equal focus on his backing group too – which means maybe a bit lead guitar upfront, and more vocals from the whole ensemble – who work together to give the whole thing a mighty great party sound! In fact, some of the best numbers almost have a roller boogie vibe that's not unlike early hip hop – although other numbers get much bassier, and funkier overall. The whole thing's great – and titles include "Virginia's Pretty Funky", "De John's Delight", "Lady Voo Doo", "Master Funk", and "The Funk If I Know". Extra Disco Perception is hardly the disco promised in the title – and more of a club funk album overall – served up with plenty of input from the great Johnny Guitar Watson! The album's a great break from Johnny's usual groove – as he's able to retire his personality a bit, and slide in with the groove of the rest of the band – even though Watson's still at the helm – handling the writing, arrangements, and production of the record! The band handles most of the vocals, though – in a cool catchy style that works great with their tight instrumentation – and the whole thing's mighty groovy throughout. Tracks include "Pretty Brown Doll", "Rock", "Pretty Miss T", and "New York New York". CD

VariousGroovadelia Vol 2 – 21st Century Spanish Groove ... CD
Vampi Soul (Spain), 2009. Used 2CD ... $13.99
A rich serving of grooves from the contemporary Spanish scene – a surprisingly strong place for heavy funk and heady rhythms – played here by a wealth of groups we've never heard before! The package is a real revelation – an indication that there's plenty going on in Spain that our ears have been missing, and proof that all the funky reissues by the Vampi Soul label have definitely been leaving their mark on the younger generation too! Most cuts here have a deep funk or funky jazz vibe – and most are instrumentals too – played by 24 new groups, none of whom appeared on the previous volume in this series – further proof that Spain is really going strong. Titles include "No Te Cruces" by Funklab, "Extra" by Watch TV, "Madrid Boogie" by Venue Connection", "Happy" by Elkano Browning Cream, "Funky Business" by Umbabaraumba, "Rootdown" by Mr Thinkalot, "Meny Un" by Zunk, "Terra Plain" by The Psyco Pixie Puck, "Keep Behind This Line" by Brabenders, "Be A Looser" by Afro Soul" Toating, "Constellation Man" by Mother Groove, and "Snatch" by Superstero.

VariousWheedle's Groove Vol 2 – Seattle Funk, Modern Soul, & Boogie 1972 to 1987 ... CD
Light In The Attic, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy Gatefold ... $9.99 15.98
A second set of grooves from the Seattle scene – and a much-needed follow-up to the first Wheedles Groove compilation! This set picks up where the last one left off – still digging the funk and soul of the 70s, but also following the scene into clubby territory, modern soul, and boogie too – with a range of under-discovered gems that groove right into the mid 80s! Just about all the work here is new to our ears – pulled from obscure indie singles from the city's small labels – and served up in some surprisingly sophisticated styles that match all the poise and class of the best Cali soul of the time. Light In The Attic have done a really wonderful job with the package – deep notes that really match the research that went into the record – but a sense of funk and flair that makes the whole thing way more than just a history project. The grooves are totally great – a really fresh discovery, especially if you dig 80s boogie and club – and tracks include "Don't Lose Your Love" by Don Brown, "Get Off The Phone" by Epicentre, "Trouble In Mind" by Malik Din, "Love One Another" by Frederick Robinson III, "I Don't Wanna Lose Your Love" by Bernadette Bascom, "I'm Through With You" by Romel Westwood, "Holding On" by Unfinished Business, "You Turn Me On (Portland session mix)" by Push, "I Wonder Love" by Seattle Pure Dynamite, "Darlin Oh Darlin" by Steppen Stones, and "Let's Backtrack" by Cold Bold & Together.

Def Jam, Mid 80s/1990s/2000s/Mid 2010s. New Copy 3 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
One of the coolest looking box sets we've ever stocked!

Fast, frenetic funk – a romping 60s take on "James Brown's Boogaloo" – done at a level that's even rawer than the original from The Godfather himself! The guitar moves super-fast – cutting the tune with a razor-sharp rhythm that's then peppered with burning organ lines – plus a bit of heavy tenor on one of the versions here! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Jose MangualBuyu ... LP
Turnstyle, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic underground Latin jazz album from the 70s – a wonderfully warm session that beautifully mixes older rhythms and a range of soulful jazz styles! The album's one of the few cut as a leader by bongo player Jose Mangual – whose sweet-stepping rhythms really make the set groove – and the session also features great work from Tito Puente on timbales and vibes, Patato Valdez on congas, Luiz Ortiz on trumpet, Dick Meza on tenor, and Kimmy Knepper on trombone. Most tracks are in an acoustic mode, but slight electric touches warm things up nicely – making for a really unique Latin jazz groove that was years ahead of its time – and a vibe that still makes this album one that we go back for time and time again! Titles include the funky groover "Black & Brown Boogie" – which features guest work on keyboards by Richard Tee, plus a bit of vocals – and other instrumental tunes include "Mai Kinshasa", "Summit", "Chinatown", "Dreamy", "Bamba A Puerto Rico", and "Sunrise Prince".

✨✧ Memphis SlimMemphis Slim ... LP
Chess, Early 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really tremendous work from Memphis Slim – a set of early 50s recordings for Chess Records, most of which have a style that mixes equal parts jazz and blues! Slim's definitely got some bluesy phrasing in his piano, but he also echoes an older generation of jazz pianists too – especially the late 30s boogie crowd. Yet his vocals at times also have some surprisingly sophisticated elements, almost that transformation of blues that took place on the west coast in the postwar years – with singers like Charles Brown or Johnny Moore. We never would have thought to put Memphis Slim in the same territory as that late 40s LA scene, but the sound here definitely has a link – especially when tenor or alto sax come into the grooves. Great stuff all around – and titles include "Marack", "Havin Fun", "Mother Earth", "Slim's Blues", "Really Got The Blues", and "Tijuana". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Rufus ThomasDo The Funky Chicken (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Stax, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best Rufus Thomas albums from the 70s – a key record from his comeback years, and one that has him trading in his older R&B mode for a harder, funkier Memphis groove! Rufus was 52 at the time, but thanks to a never-dying fire, and some great youthful arrangements, the set crackles with a raw intensity that put him at the top of the funky Stax for the time! The set includes the massive comeback hit "Funky Chicken", plus a sublime remake of "Sixty Minute Man" – done in a slow and funky mode that rolls on for lover 7 minutes in all! Other tracks include "Soul Food", "Rufus Rastus Johnson Brown", "Turn Your Damper Down", and remakes of "The Preacher & The Bear" and "Bearcat". And dang! There's a huuuuuge amount of bonus tracks here too – funky Stax singles from the early 70s – including "Funky Mississippi", "So Hard To Get Along With", "Funky Way", "I Want To Hold You", "Itch & Scratch (parts 1 & 2)", and "Boogie Ain't Nuttin (parts 1 & 2)".

Classic early 70s funk on James Brown's People Records imprint – with legendary tracks by Fred Wesley & The JBs, James Brown, Maceo & The Macks, Lyn Collins and The Devils – and perhaps best of all, it come in textured, embossed flip top carrying case with the classic People logo! This great little box includes 5 of the imprint's most essential singles – each 45 with reproduced visuals from the original releases on the inner labels and in People logo sleeves. The box itself is great, too – a cloth-covered carrying case with purple People embossing throughout the interior – and roomy enough to house a bunch more 45s! Tracks include "The X-Sorcist" and "Hip Hug-Her" by The Devils, "Thing (About It)" and Ain't No Sunshine" by Lyn Collins, "Cross The Track" and "Boogie 'N' Twist" by Maceo & The Macks, "Same Beat" (Parts 1, 2 & 3)" by Fred Wesley & The JBs and "Escape-ism" (Parts 1, 2 & 3)" by James Brown. 7-inch, Vinyl record

A wicked little album that has John Lee Hooker recording in San Francisco with a bunch of the other funky talents gracing the ABC/Impulse label at the time! Like other Bay Area work of the time, there's a nicely messed-up feel to the whole session – and plenty of funky moments bubble up from the bottom, thanks to a lineup that features Clifford Coulter on keyboards, Mel Brown on guitar, and Michael White on violin! More standard bluesmen on the date include Charlie Musselwhite on harmonica, Robert Hooker on electric piano, and Elvin Biship on slide guitar – and titles include "Hit The Road", "Boogie With The Hook", "Letter To My Baby", and "TB Sheets". Van Morrison also duets with Hooker on the title track – "Never Get Out Of These Blues Alive". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John PattonBoogaloo ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare work by Hammond organ giant Big John Patton – recorded in 1968, but never issued until 1995, and even then, only briefly! The record features Patton at his finest – stretching out from his basic soul jazz roots, into a more searching use of the organ that's undoubtedly influenced by Larry Young's work at the same time. The record features great work by Harold Alexander on flute and tenor, plus trumpet by Vincent McEwan, drums by George Brown, and added conga by Richard Landrum. The groove is somewhere between 60s soul jazz and modal – and the tracks are long, with that heavy Patton swing! Title sinclude "B&J", "Boogaloo Boogie", "Milk & Honey", "Shoutin But No Poutin", and "Spirit". CD
(SHMCD pressing.)
