Ray Brown Trio With Ralph MooreMoore Makes 4 ... CD
Concord, 1990. Used ... $3.99
We're not normally great fans of the Ray Brown Trio, but this album's a corker – thanks to some great tenor work by Ralph Moore! Moore's a the height of his powers here – blowing with an easy soulfulness that recalls the classic late 50s work of Hank Mobley. His presence on the set really opens things up – and althoguh Brown's trio is more than fine, and Gene Harris' piano is always a treat, it's really Moore's tenor work that makes this album a gem. Titles are mostly standards, but done with imagination – and titles include "The Champ", "Polka Dots & Moonbeams", "Like Someone In Love", "Quasimoto", "Ralph's Boogie", and "SOS". CD

✨✧ Ray Camacho BandReach Out ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1980. New Copy ... $18.99
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".

Dyke & The BlazersWe Got More Soul – The Ultimate Broadway Funk ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99 22.99
The best collection we've ever seen of the work of funky soul legends Dyke & The Blazers – a double-length set that features full, unedited versions of their classics – plus a whopping batch of previously unreleased tunes! Dyke & The Blazers had a groove that was mighty solid back in the late 60s – a hard-vamping, tightly rhythmic groove that easily matched the best early funk of the time from Charles Wright, Sly Stone, or James Brown – and which was often served up with a rougher edge, and an overall sound that was a lot more dangerous! However, many of the group's singles really trimmed down their performances – shaving off key instrumental moments that are lovingly re-attached here, and combining them with some even rarer tracks that never saw the light of day back in the 60s. The whole thing's amazing – and this 2LP set features 18 tracks that include "Black Boy", "Stuff", "Moon", "Booga Jivin", "Runaway People", "Funky Broadway Time (parts 1 & 2)", "Swamp Walk", "Extra Funk", "Let A Woman Be A Woman Let A Man Be A Man", "Soul Cake", "She Knows It", "Let's Do It Together", "Bring It On Back", "Funky Walk (parts 1 & 2)", and "Triple Funk".

Alamac, Mid 40s. Near Mint- ... $7.99
This album is a collection of Gaillard's work from the mid-1940s that apparently doesn't turn up in too many other places. Gaillard plays with an all-star bunch of musicians including Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Bam Brown, Howard McGhee, Zutty Singleton, Lucky Thompson, Jack McVea, Dodo Marmarosa., Marshall Royal, and Wini Beatty. There are a total of 12 tracks and they include "Dizzy Boogie", "Slim's Jam", "Riff City", "Chicken Rhythm", "Mean Pretty Mama", "Early Mornin Boogie", and "Popity Pop". LP, Vinyl record album

Howlin WolfHowling Wolf Sings The Blues (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Crown/Ace (UK), Early 50s. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Howlin Wolf sings the blues, and comes across in a way that influences an entire generation too – with that raw, raspy sound that made the singer a perfect blend of delta roots and contemporary sounds that were bubbling up in the postwar years! These tracks have a spare, simple, stark style that's still a lot more powerful than most of the records that tried to copy Wolf's modes in later years – mindblowing guitar work from Willie Johnson, harmonica lines that weave the whole thing together, and tremendous vocals that would shake the paint off your walls, even without any other instrumentation! Titles include "Crying At Daybreak", "Twisting & Turning", "Brown Skin Woman", "Morning At Midnight", "Backslide Boogie", "House Rockin Boogie", "Keep What You Got", and "Worrided About My Baby". CD adds in 10 more tracks from the same sessions – making for a 20 track set that's a great representation of these recordings from 1951 and 1952 – with titles that include "Driving This Highway", "I'm The Wolf", "The Sun Is Rising", "I Want Your Picture", "My Baby Stole Off", and "Passing By Blues".

Les ParisiennesL'Integrale 1964 to 1969 (3CD) ... CD
Philips/Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 60s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $18.99 29.99
The complete work of Les Parisiennes – a lovely female French pop group from the 60s – supervised by pianist Claude Bolling! The 3CD package brings together all the quartet's music for Philips Records in the mid 60s – a surprisingly big batch of recordings, given that most of them were done in the space of four short years – and presented here with an equally big range of styles to match! Some of the tunes are done in that older-styled, jazz boogie mode that Bolling used in his own instrumental work – but others are sweeter, lighter, and show echoes of the other pop modes going down in Paris during the 60s. The group's an under-discovered gem from these key French pop years – and the 71 track package features titles that include "Je Te Desteste", "Ce Soir A St Tropez", "Les Parisiennes", "File Le Temps", "Il Flotte", "Paris Je T'Aime D'Amor", "Theme De Borsalino", "Bonnie & Clyde", "Boom Band A Bang", "Jimmy Brown", "Les Zozos", "Le Tunnel Sous La Manche", "Les Frites", "La Salade", "Hans", "Mickey Tintin Et Spirou", and "Dans La Poche Du Kangourou".

Brownie McGhee & Sonny TerryBack Country Blues ... CD
Southern Routes, Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
The team of Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee may be best remembered as a folk-blues act from their later recordings – but back at the start, on tracks like this, the duo had a nicely raw vibe – and a fair bit of R&B in their approach! Much of this work was recorded for the Savoy label – and a good number of tracks feature just Brownie without Terry, and some of those numbers are especially jazzy – and showcase a style of singing that's almost got more of a west coast postwar vibe than most of his other work. CD features a whopping 27 tracks in all – a very beautiful collection of these key early sides – and titles include "Diamond Ring", "Dissatisfied Blues", "I Was Fooled", "So Much Trouble", "My Fault", "Bad Nerves", "I'd Love To Love You", "True Blues", "Anna Mae", and "Robbie Doby Boogie".

Amos MilburnLet's Have A Party! – The Aladdin Recordings ... CD
Aladdin/Rev-Ola (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $8.99 13.99
One of the greatest singers of the postwar R&B era – the amazing Amos Milburn, arguably a huge influence on later rock and soul too! Like a few other key contemporaries – such as Wynonie Harris and Roy Brown – Milburn had a great way of hitting topics that were honest, open, and everyday – tales of boozing and loving delivered with very down to earth lyrics, and a good bit of wit as well. Many tunes feature some great piano lines sewn in nicely alongside the vocals – triplets that really rock the tunes nicely, although often in a gentle sort of way. Titles include "I'm Gonna Tell My Mama", "Long Long Day", "Thinkin & Drinkin", "I'm Still A Fool For You", "One Scotch One Bourbon One Beer", "Tears Tears Tears", "Sax Shack Boogie", "I Love You Anyway", "Ain't Nothing Shaking", "Just One More Drink", "Let Me Go Home Whiskey", "Greyhound", and "Soft Pillow". 29 tracks in all!

VariousComplete Meteor Blues, R&B, & Gospel Recordings ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 24.99
The soulful side of the legendary Meteor label – every single blues, R&B, and gospel single issued by the famous Memphis imprint of the 50s – all set together for the first time in one place! Meteor is possibly more famous as the home of some key rockabilly and country singles back in the day – but like many other southern labels at the time, the company also cut a fair bit of work from the other side of the fence – and was really the first local label to really mine the Memphis scene in the pre-soul years. 2CD package features 54 tracks in all – both the a- and b-sides of all the non-rock and country singles from the label – packaged with the usual Ace high quality of liner notes and discographical details! Titles include "I Believe" and "Sinful Women" by Elmore James, "Saxony Boogie" by Saxman Brown, "Horizon" by Carl Green, "Crying In The Chapel" by Buster Smith, "Slidin Home" by Al Smith's Progressive Jazz, "Tennessee Woman" by Fenton Robinson, "Lizie" by The Del Rios, "I Declare" by Smokey Hogg, "Dumb Woman Blues" by JT Big Boy Brown, "Tell The Angels" by The Angel Voices, "Let My Last Days Be My Best" by James Anderson, "Let My Baby Be" by Little Milton, and "The Easy Livin Plan" by Rufus Thomas.

VariousNew York Sound – From The East Coast To The Future ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Seminal club tracks from the New York underground at the end of the 70s – a host of killer singles from the Spring, Vanguard, and Posse labels – all in a fantastic blend of boogie, disco, electro, and soul! The work here is easily some of the most sophisticated to come out of the east coast club scene at the time – a real return to indie genius after disco broke heavily in the mainstream, almost a reinvention of the groove with a host of new elements! Some of these tunes will be familiar, but they're presented here in their full extended versions next to others that have been un-reissued for years – making the set an essential batch of tunes that really gets at the best sound of New York from these years! 10 long tracks in all – including "Over Like A Fat Rat" by Fonda Rae, "It Ain't No Big Thing" by Rainbow Brown, "Money (Dollar Bill Y'All)" by Jimmy Spicer, "Charley Says (Roller Boogie Baby)" by King Tim III, "Wired For Games" by C-Bank, "Rockin It" by MC Flex & The FBI Crew, "Electric Kingdom" by Twilight 22, "Is This The Future" by Fatback, "Love Hangover" by Players Association, and "You Keep On Making Me Hot" by Busta Jones.

Don ThompsonFanny Brown ... CD
Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... About April 27, 2016 (delayed)
The one and only album from drummer Don Thompson – a funky Brunswick classic from the 70s, and one of the most unique records we've ever heard from the label at the time! Don's got this style of singing that has a bit of a southern twang at times, but he works with grooves that are definitely northern in their orientation – served up in a range of styles that includes the funky drum break of the title cut, some mellow-stepping moments on a few other tunes, and the bouncing boogie that's really become the album's calling card over the years! There's loads of great bass work on most cuts, which really grounds that album alongside Don's drums – and titles include "Just Plain Funk", "Fanny Brown", "Lovin To The Bone", "Night Ladies (part 1 & 2)", and "Hang Loose".

Robert Pete WilliamsLouisiana Blues (180 gram brown vinyl pressing) ... LP
Takoma/4 Men With Beards, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... About August 1, 2016
A bruised up beautiful blues record from Robert Pete Williams – the excellent, individualistic guitar and voice should-be classic that is his Louisiana Blues. Woke up this mornin' country blues tradition is in the marrow of Williams' craft, but nothing he does on this set feels like anything but the realest of the real deal, and his playing is unfailingly unique. He plays in keys just to the left of familiar, his notes unpredictable from one pluck to the next, but never self-conciously out there or different for the sake of it. It's genuine blues and his weary, expressive voice serves the playing perfectly. Titles include "Somebody Help Poor Me", "Freight-Train Blues", "It's Hard To Tell", "Motherless Children Have A Hard Time", "Ugly", "So Long Boogie", "IT's A Long Old Road" and more.

VariousMo' Mod Jazz ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... About August 1, 2016
Second great volume in this cool Kent series of "mod" jazzy tracks from the Prestige/Fantasy vaults. The emphasis here is definitely on "mod", and a lot of these tracks are the kind of cuts that you'd imagine Brit hipsters in the 60's listening to – with loads of Hammond riffs, choppy guitar, and the occasional bluesy vocal. There's 22 cuts on here, and the tracks include "Smokey Joe's La La" by Googie Rene, "Blue Vibes" by Johnny Lytle, "Cholo" by Brown Brothers of Soul, "Soul Jam" by Booker T & The MGs, "Money" by Freddie Roach, "Mission Impossible" by Johnny Gilliam, "Brother Ray" by Willis Jackson, and "Right On" by Boogaloo Joe Jones. Very very groovy, and like finding an excellent jazzy jukebox in a lost corner tavern! CD

✨✧ James BrownBody Heat – Live At Studio 54 ... LP
Phoenix10, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lot less disco than you'd guess from the setting – still very much in that fast-funk mode that James was using at the end of the 70s – a style that was his answer to club music, but which was still largely forged out of a soulful funk-based groove! Titles include "Sex Machine", "Body Heat", a 14 minute take on "This Is A Man's World", and the short "Bay Ridge Boogy", an instrumental by the Bay Ridge Band. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Eddie Cano & His QuintetBrought Back Live From PJ's ... LP
Dunhill, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Stunning stuff – and one of the best-ever Latin soul albums of all time! Despite the fact that Eddie Cano's earlier albums are more in a Latin easy mode, this late 60's side for Dunhill is totally smoking – and probably his greatest album ever! Forgive the superlatives, but we're totally serious on this one – as the set's a firey batch of Latin instrumentals, with a slammin' boogaloo groove all the way through – filled with mad percussion, jazzy piano riffs, and a non-stop groove that's totally great. The set was recorded live at PJ's nightclub, and it's a non-stop Latin Soul party that includes massive originals like "Slip Slip", "Brown & Blue", "Miro Como Es", and "Don't Ever Change" – plus smoking covers of "El Pito" and "Louie Louie". The set screams with excitement, and is as great as the album is rare! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Delmore BrothersFreight Train Boogie – King Recordings 1946 to 1951 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sublime sounds from one of the best harmony duos in the hillbilly business – Delmore Brothers Alton and Rabon, sounding completely wonderful here on an early selection of singles cut for King Records! The music's definitely got some of the harmonies and acoustic elements from more bluegrass-oriented acts of the time – but there also almost seems to be a touch of King Records blues in the approach, too – given the way the electric guitar can be used to sharpen the edges of the music, and harmonica lines can help give the vocals a special sort of inflection – especially when they take off on their solos. The blend is great – almost a pre-war mode, from the early 78rpm days when musical genres weren't so ironed-down – and in a way, singles like these also really point the way towards some of the mixing of modes to come a few years later in the rockabilly years. Titles include "Blues You Never Lose", "Muddy Water", "Mobile Blues", "Boogie Woogie Baby", "Trouble Ain't Nothin But The Blues", "Kentucky Mountain", "Used Car Blues", "Weary Day", Blues Stay Away From Me", "Brown's Ferry Blues", and "Take It To The Captain". (And in case you're wondering, there's lots of tracks on this set that aren't on Ace Records' "acetate" collection of Delmore Brothers recordings – and vice-versa!) CD

Verve, Mid 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 some seam splitting.)
