James BrownRoots Of A Revolution ... CD
Polydor, 1960s. Used 2 CDs ... $11.99
A great collection of 60s work by James – one that goes way past the hits, to show the birth of the funky style that would forever be James' calling card in the 70s! The package starts in the earlier King R&B years – with tracks that are hard and soulful, yet which also have a unique approach to rhythm that was the beginning of Brown's experiments in funk. As the set moves on, it runs through an assortment of 60s hard soul styles – with touches of soul jazz, sock-boogaloo, and more – all coming together to serve up a great portrait of James' early genius! The package has a number of wonderful vocal cuts, some instrumental bits, and even some rare studio dialogue – and it features tracks pulled from a number of rare singles and long out of print LPs, complete with a killer booklet too! Titles include "Baby You're Right", "Doodle Bee", "This Old Heart", "I'll Never Never Let You Go", "I Cried", "I Don't Care", "Shout & Shimmy", "Mashed Potatoes USA", "Maybe The Last Time", "Oh Baby Don't You Weep (parts 1 & 2)", "Just You & Me Darling", "And I Do Just What I Want", "Hold It", "Begging Begging", "That Dood It", and "Chonnie On Chon". 43 tracks in all!

✨✧ Jimmy BrownJimmy Brown Organ-ization ... LP
Abet, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $54.99
An obscure album of funky organ instrumentals – with a groove that's kind of in the Booker T mode! Jimmy Brown's on the organ on all tracks, and he gets some larger backings from Bob Holmes – adding in some strings and tasty instrumental flourishes to the smaller combo sound of Jimmy's group. This can be heard nicely on the album's version of "Ode To Billy Joe", done here in a style that's perhaps less funky than some of the others, but which also has these incredible David Axelrod-ish strings that come into the mix at just the right moment. Jimmy's approach to the keys has some hints of Jimmy McGriff, with a strong clean sound that works perfectly with this style of arranging. Titles include "Funky Funky Boogaloo", "Soul man", "Knock On Wood", and "Woman How Do You Make Me Love You Like I Do". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a bumped corner and a some notations in pen on the back.)

Curtis Fuller & The Jazz AmbassadorsJazz Conference Abroad (Trip) ... LP
Smash/Trip, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $5.99
An excellent jam-session set – featuring Curtis Fuller and a host of excellent American players that includes Phil Woods, Freddie Hubbard, Sahib Shihab, Benny Bailey, Eric Dixon, and Patti Brown. The group's also joined by Europeans Stu Martin and Ake Persson – in very long tracks that have an open-ended, live jam session feel to them. This mix of players is very strong, and the set feels like it's more of an MPS/Saba set than the usual Smash/Mercury jazz outing from the time. Recorded in Switzerland in the mid 60s – and featuring long versions of "Stolen Moments", "Blue N Boogie", and "Scrapple From The Apple". LP, Vinyl record album

Harry 'The Hipster' GibsonBoogie Woogie N Blue ... LP
Musicraft, Mid 40s/1984. Sealed ... $14.99
We've never been entirely sure if Harry Gibson is the same person as Henry Gibson – known for his offbeat acting in Nashville and Laugh-In – but given the wavy hair he's got on the cover of the set, we like to think so! The tracks are a nice little exercise in small combo jive vocals, and have a feel that's similar to some of Slim Gaillard's work from the time. Coincidentally enough, Slim's on guitar on some tracks, but the main vocals (and piano parts) are by Gibson – done in a slightly humorous mode that's pretty darn great. Titles include "Who Put The Benzedrine In Mrs. Murphy's Ovaltine?", "Riot In Boogie", "Get Your Juices At The Deuces", and "I Stay Brown All Year 'Round". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Syl JohnsonMs Fine Brown Frame ... LP
Erect/Boardwalk, 1982. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A bit of a comeback for Chicago soul legend Syl Johnson – a set initially recorded for the smaller indie Erect, but picked up for bigger distribution by Boardwalk thanks to a catchy title hit! The sound here is quite different from Syl's Twinight or Hi Records years – still a bit bluesy overall, but also going for a much tighter boogie-based groove – in keeping with the sound of Erect at the time. Johnson's vocals still retain that nice kind of pinch that shows his down home roots, but the instrumentation is much tighter than before – often in an electric mode that's a bit like Malaco in the 80s, only slicker. Syl produced the record with General Crook – and titles include the nice groover "Ms Fine Brown Frame", plus "Sweet Thing", "You Don't Have To Go", "It Ain't Easy", "Groove Me", and "Keep On Loving Me".

✨✧ Boogaloo Joe JonesRight On Brother (RVG remaster edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Prestige, 1970. New Copy ... $5.99 11.98
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". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – 45 single versions of "Right On" and "Someday We'll Be Together Again".

✨✧ Eddie KendricksBoogie Down! ... LP
Tamla, 1974. Very Good ... $3.99
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

Maceo & The MacksCross The Tracks (We Better Go Back)/Boogie N Twist ... 7-inch
People/Get On Down, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 10.98
Both killers! "Cross The Tracks" is Maceo's standout funky classic – a back-forth chugger with an instantly infectious groove, and that top-shelf, all-pro instrumentation that you'd expect from any James Brown produced track at the time! "Boogie N Twist" on the flip is another funky treasure. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Guy Morris & BandHot Pants Party/Cool It ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), 2005. New Copy ... $3.99
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

✨✧ Idris MuhammadBoogie To The Top ... LP
Kudu, 1977. Very Good ... $2.99
Quite different than Idris' funky drumming on early 70s jazz records – but not a bad little album on its own terms. As you'd guess by the title, the album's more of a disco/club effort than before, but thanks to some good arrangements by Dave Matthews – who'd worked some good magic with other Kudu artists, as well as James Brown – the funk component's still pretty high. Most tracks have vocals, and the record's got long drawn-out funk tracks with a lot of electric keyboards and wah-wah guitar work. Titles include "One With A Star", "Boogie To The Top", "Bread", and "Stick It In Your Face". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny OtisJohnny Otis Show Live At Monterey ... CD
Epic/Legacy, 1970. Used ... $14.99
Johnny's very much in his "revival" mode here – dipping back to his earlier R&B roots, and working with a host of famous older blues singers. The set's got vocals by Roy Milton, Roy Brown, Esther Phillips, Mighty Mouth Evans, Ivory Joe Hunter, Eddie Cleanhead Vinson, Margie Evans, and Big Joe Turner – and even though Shuggie Otis is on the album, the whole thing's a pretty bluesy affair overall. Titles include "Shuggie's Boogie", "Plastic Man", "Margie's Boogie", "Baby You Don't Know", "Little Esther's Blues", "RM Blues", "Goin Back To LA", "Willie & The Hand Jive", and "Since I Met You Baby".

✨✧ Shuggie Otis & OthersIn Session – Great Rhythm & Blues ... CD
Goldenlane/Blues Spectrum, 1970s. Used ... $4.99
A pretty great overview of work that Shuggie Otis recorded while working in the studios at the Blues Spectrum label during the 70s – mostly backing up other singers in a series of sessions recorded by his dad Johnny Otis. The Blues Spectrum label was notable in that it featured work by a number of lost greats who'd been important in R&B in the 40s and 50s on the west coast, but who'd not made it into the recording studios in a number of years. Otis Sr got them back, recording for his Blues Spectrum label – and often gave their music a hipper, more 70s-styled sound – an effort that was clearly helped by the presence of Shuggie! The package for this one is great – with a good set of notes on the label and sessions, and images of the covers of the old albums too. Titles include "Driftin Blues" and "Big Legged Woman" by Charles Brown, "Shake Rattle & Roll" and "TV Mama" by Big Joe Turner, "Willie & The Hand Jive" and "Country Girl" by Johnny Otis, "Trackin Machine" and "Doin It" by Richard Berry, "Choo Choo Boogie" and "I Got The Walkin Blues" by Louis Jordan, "Chicken Shack Boogie" by Amos Milburn, "I'm The Midnight Creeper" and "Sugar" by Eddie Cleanhead Vinson, and "I Got A Big Fat Mama" and "Information Blues" by Roy Milton.

John PattonBoogaloo ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $16.99
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

Rufus ThomasFunky Chicken (Do The Funky Chicken plus bonus tracks!) ... CD
Stax, 1970. Used ... $1.99
A great version of the classic Rufus Thomas album Do The Funky Chicken – presented here with lots of bonus tracks from singles! The core record is one of Rufus' best 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". Plus, the CD also features a bonus 7 tracks from singles at the time – work that's almost even funkier, on titles that include "Itch & Scratch (parts 1 & 2)", "Funky Way", "So Hard To Get Along With", "Funky Mississippi", and "Boogie Ain't Nuttin (parts 1 & 2)".

Stanley TurrentineCommon Touch ... LP
Blue Note, 1968. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A really great later Blue Note session from Stanley Turrentine – a small combo set that's almost a return to the format of earlier years! The group's a strong one – and features Shirley Scott on organ, Jimmy Ponder on guitar, and Idris Muhammad on drums – playing in a style that's subtler and more laidback than his work with Lou Donaldson, but which still has a nice funk undercurrent. Stan's horn is in wonderful form on the record – really taking advantage of the longer tracks to open up with a mellow and exploratory tone – and the team of Scott and Ponder especially sounds great next to each other on the album. Tracks include "Boogaloo", "Buster Brown", and "Common Touch". LP, Vinyl record album

Ben WebsterSoulville ... CD
Verve, Mid 50s. Used ... $2.99
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

VariousBig Break Rapper Party – Sounds Of New York Vol 1 (expanded version) ... CD
Queen Constance, Early 80s. Used ... $5.99
Skaters, disco freaks and hip hoppers unite on this monster compilation featuring killer old school rap and boogie cuts – all produced by the legendary Peter Brown! The set reissues some of the legendary Big Break Rapper party LP originally issued on Brown's Queen Constance imprint, but drops most of the spacey disco and boogie tracks and fills it out with a nice batch of roller skating and disco rap tracks from the hey day of the old school east coast rap era. 11 numbers in all, including "Family Rap" by Family, "Willie Rap" by Willie Wood & The Willie Wood Crew, "CC Crew Rap" by the CC Crew, "Teen Machine Rap" by Teen Machine, "Patty Duke" by Cloud One, "Dancing Heart" by the Universal Two, "Death Rap" by Margo's Kool Out Crew, "Boogie Feelin' Rap" by Sweet G, "A Scoopy Rap" by Scoopy and "Super Jay Love Theme" by Super Jay.

VariousDisco 2 – A Further Fine Selection Of Independent Disco, Modern Soul, & Boogie 1976 to 1980 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $19.99 22.99
Not disco hits or the overplayed classics you may know from too many weddings – but a wonderfully deep selection of underground cuts that shows that there's still plenty of rare gems to discover from the 70s club scene! The set's put together by the man who wrote the book on rare disco mixes (literally!) – and he's got a great ear for the kinds of cuts that still sound incredibly fresh all these many years later – work that may well have been so ahead of its time, it's taken the passage of decades to finally give it its due! Most of these tracks strip down to the best elements of underground disco – the kinds of basslines, rhythm parts, and funky instrumentation that still leaves us breathless over the years – and as usual, Soul Jazz have done a bang-up job with the whole package too. Titles include "Pay The Price" by Stevo, "Groove On Down" by Dunn Pearson Jr, "Micro Wave Boogie" by Skip Jackson & The Natural Experience, "Come Inside" by Shades Of Love, "Rock A Freak" by Needa, "Disco Strut" by Creme De Coco", "What Can I Do To Make You Dance" by Anita Maldondo, "Everybody's Dancin" by Jahneen, "Freestyle" by Montego Joe, "Strut On" by Otis Brown's Grade A, "Jam On" by Panache, "Moon Ride" by Universal Love, "He's Here" by Paco & Flaco & Coco, "I Feel Like Love" by Jazz, "Get Down Boy" by Paper Doll, and "Victorious" by Ripple.
