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".

Eddie Cano & His QuintetBrought Back Live From PJ's ... LP
Dunhill, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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

Dyke & The BlazersWe Got More Soul – The Ultimate Broadway Funk ... CD
Original Sound/BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 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 the 2CD set features a whopping 33 tracks in all, split into one disc of material recorded in Phoenix, and one more of tracks from Hollywood! Titles 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".

Slim GaillardSlim's Jam – Slim Gaillard 1945-1946 ... LP
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

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".

Gary McFarlandProfiles ... LP
Impulse, Mid 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
A great little jazz record by Gary – very different than his groovy/easy albums on Verve, and with a dark sound that shows his strength as a composer and arranger. The group features McFarland in the lead on vibes, plus reed work by Phil Woods, Zoot Sims, and Richie Kamuca, and lots of rhythm backing by the likes of Richard Davis, Gabor Szabo, Sam Brown, and others. Willis Conover does a bit of narration, and tracks include "Sage Hands", "Milo's Other Samba", "Winter Colors", and "Bygones & Boogie". LP, Vinyl record album

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!

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.

VariousRare 80s Soul, Funk, & Boogie ... CD
Essential, 1980s. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
Way more than the usual 80s grooves – as the set definitely takes the "rare" in its title seriously, and presents a huge amount of cuts that were even new to our boogie-trained ears! The set's not the usual electro soul or post-disco material – and instead, really moves around some great territory in the realm of 80s soul – no hip hop or house, but some wonderful material that comes from a range of indie labels, and never got much exposure at the time! Titles include "Don't Make Me Wait" by Ken Thomas, "Expand Your Mind" by Johnny Davis, "Are You Lonely" by Hipnotic, "I Could Never Love Another Like You" by Joanna Gardner, "Loving Touch" by Quincy Patrick, "Too Much Too Fast" by Verna Brown & Rich Girls, "Think Fast" by Pamela Joy, "No Way To Control It" by Mac Thornhill, "Rough Life In The City" by Grace Rico, "You're Wearing Me Out" by The Sweethearts, "Love Dance" by Lou Volpe, and "Never Too Late" by Julius Brown.

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.

✨✧ Ray Brown Trio With Ralph MooreMoore Makes 4 ... CD
Concord, 1990. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Tamla, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Eddie's classic dancefloor groovers for Tamla, with production and arrangements by the hit team of Frank Wilson and Leonard Caston! The album keeps Eddie's hit "boogie" groove going strong – grooving mostly in a midtempo smooth soul style that would become a dominant approach to soul during the next few years, Eddie and Motown's contribution to the soul legacy of the 70s that was nearly as strong as that of Philly soul. Titles include "Boogie Down", "Hooked On Your Love", "Honey Brown", "Tell Her Love Has Felt The Need", and "Loving You The Second Time Around". LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, Mid 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
About as classic as you can get for Ben Webster on Verve Records – a nicely mature, nicely laidback session that really captures the energy promised in the title! The sidemen are all in an easygoing, soulful mode – Oscar Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Stan Levey on drums – and Ben blows these beautifully deep, well-crafted lines on tenor over the top – always with that raspy tone that had already influenced a generation, but which hardly ever got a better showcase than this! Titles include "Time On My Hands", "Where Are You", "Soulville", "Late Date", and "Ill Wind". CD also features 3 previously unissued tracks – "Who", "Boogie Woogie", and "Roses Of Picardy". CD

✨✧ VariousJiving Jamboree Vol 3 – King ... CD
King/Ace (UK), Early 50s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some real heavy-hitters from the King Records catalog of the 50s – the kind of hard-edged, strong-burning R&B that the label did so well at the time! Some of the artists here are big names from King's roster of the period – Roy Brown, Wynonie Harris, and Tiny Bradshaw – but the set's also got lots more from singers we've never heard before, and who represent the never-ending stream of genius from King's studios – material that had an undeniable impact on rock and soul in years to come – although given the choice, we'll always go for these originals instead! There's even a few of the heavier hillbilly numbers that King did so well – and tracks include "The Deacon Don't Like It" by Wynonie Harris, "Hollerin & Screamin" by Little Esther, "Chic A Choo Freight" by Bob Newman, "The Walkin Blues" by Fluffy Hunter, "No More Nothin" by Zeb Turner, "Baseball Boogie" by Mabel Scott, "Lies Lies Lies" by Annisteen Allen, "Why Don't You Haul Off & Love Me" by Bullmoose Jackson, "Strollin With Nolen" by Jimmy Nolen, "Seven Nights To Rock" by Moon Mullican, "Voo Ve Ah Bee" by The Platters, "Cool Disc Jockey" by Boyd Bennett & His Rockets, "Miss Shake It" by Ba Ba Thomas, "Come On Come On Come On" by Tiny Topsy, and "Midnight Ramblin Tonight" by H Bomb Ferguson.

✨✧ Delmore BrothersFreight Train Boogie – King Recordings 1946 to 1951 ... CD
King/Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... 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
