Cicero BlakeShing A Ling/Loving You Woman Is Everything ... 7-inch
Brainstorm, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Excellent work from this lost Chicago soul singer! "Shing A Ling" has a bouncy sock-boogaloo groove – rolling along nicely with these vocal choruses that go "woooo" behind Cicero's vocals in a wild way. "Loving You Woman" is a mellow cut – but even better. It begins with a strange jazzy trumpet riff, and Cicero's vocals are wonderfully honest on the track – very much in the mode of James Brown on some of his best ballad cuts! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Ray Camacho BandReach Out ... CD
Creole Stream (Japan), Early 80s. New Copy ... $22.99
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+ ... $2.99
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 trumpeter logo and deep groove. Cover has light wear and a small split on the top seam.)

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!)

James & The Incredible ShowmanJames Brown's Boo-Ga-Loo (2 versions) ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $8.99
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

Boogaloo Joe JonesLegends Of Acid Jazz – Boogaloo Joe/Right On Brother ... CD
Prestige, 1969/1970. Used ... $8.99
2 of Boogaloo Joe's best and rarest albums on one CD – guitar jazz funk at its best! First up is Boogaloo Joe – a killer session of funky guitar jazz, and the record that gave Ivan "Boogaloo" Joe Jones his nickname! The set's a full-on wailer that really blows away Joe's first two on Prestige – breaking out ouf the box with a killer lineup that includes Rusty Bryant on tenor, Bernard Purdie on drums, and Sonny Phillips on organ – all working with Joe's incredibly tight guitar lines to craft some wicked tunes that take soul jazz firmly into the sound of the 70s! Titles include "Boogaloo Joe", "People Are Talking", "Dream On Little Dreamer", and "Atlantic City Soul". Right On Brother is next – and 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

✨✧ Gary McFarlandProfiles ... LP
Impulse, Mid 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
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
(Orange & black label stereo pressing, with Van Gelder stamp – in nice shape!)

Memphis SlimMemphis Slim ... CD
Chess (Japan), Early 50s. New Copy ... $9.99
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". CD

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

John PattonBoogaloo ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $18.99
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

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

VariousCriminal Records – Law, Disorder, & The Pursuit Of Vinyl Justice ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s/Early 60s. Used ... $6.99
A very cool little record – almost the musical equivalent of pulp paperbacks and b-movie crime films – served up on a host of rare tracks from the 50s and early 60s! Crime is the dominant theme here – as you might guess from the title – but the great thing about the music is the way it's handled – often with a slight sense of humor that offers up a nice contrast to more serious crime-based pop culture of the time – reflecting the postwar fascination with the genre, but offering up its own vision of things as well! Instrumentation and production usually play a big part in the tunes – pretty crafty, with lots of cool twists and turns that make things as vivid as pre-code comic book or True Confessions magazine! Titles include "Cops & Robbers" by Boogaloo & His Gallant Crew, "Dick Tracy" by The Chants, "The Prisoner's Song" by Hylo Brown, "21 Days In Jail" by Magic Sam, "Mr Dillon" by The Delcardos, "Life To Go" by George Jones, "Bad Detective" by The Coasters, "Birmingham Jail" by Warren Storm, "Jail Bird" by Sonny Knight, "Prisoner's Plea" by Billy Boy, "Dragnet" by Ray Anthony, and "Have You Got The Gumption" by Scatman Crothers.

VariousEccentric Soul – The Bandit Label ... CD
Numero, Early 70s. Used ... $7.99
An incredible peek into a near-lost chapter of Chicago soul – the tiny Bandit label, home to The Majestic Arrows, one of the greatest indie harmony groups of the midwest in the 70s – plus a few other excellent soul artists! As with the other Eccentric Soul volume from Numero, this one offers far more than just an assortment of rare singles – and instead really digs deep to tell the true story of this tiny indie soul label. The music alone is totally great – as the set features a wealth of harmony soul tracks by The Majestic Arrows, plus other funk and soul tracks by Johnny Davis, Altyrone Deno Brown, and Linda Balintine – but the package is equally noteworthy – filled with the storied details of the unusual and exotic practices and lifestyles of the Bandit Records posse. The set features 17 full tracks – including "One More Time Around", "Another Day", "Doing It For Us", "Love Is All I Need", "Going To Make A Time Machine", "We Love Together", "The Magic Of Your Love", and "I'll Never Cry For Another Boy" by The Majestic Arrows; "We Have Love" and "Bring Back The One I Love" by The Arrows; "If You Love Me" and "Sweet Pea" by Altyrone Deno Brown; "You're A Habit Hard To Break" and "Glad About That" by Linda Balintine; and "You've Got To Crawl To Me" and "Boogedy Boogedy" by Johnny Davis. Plus, the set also features 3 rehearsal takes of tunes by the Majestic Arrows! CD

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!

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
