Cicero BlakeShing A Ling/Loving You Woman Is Everything ... 7-inch 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 CD format
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 LP format
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
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.)

Dan HartmanRelight My Fire (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Blue Sky/Purpose, 1979. New Copy ... $9.99
A stunning disco classic from Dan Hartman – maybe an unlikely talent for the dancefloors, given his image on the cover – but an artist who definitely went onto shape the sound of the clubs at the end of the 70s! The album's got the Hartman groove really hitting hard, and right on the money – a tightly compressed approach to disco that really lays heavily on the hooks – in a style that's similar to where Peter Brown was going at the time, with a similar compressed sensibility that gets past any of the fluff that was drowning others in the disco generation! In fact, it could well be argued that the approach here really helps focus a dancefloor sound towards the modes of the 80s – while still allowing for the fluid soul of the disco years too – a style that's summed up perfectly in the album's extended classic "Vertigo/Relight My Fire", which features famous vocals by Loleatta Holloway! Other titles are all sweet too – and include "Free Ride", "I Love Makin Music", "Just For Fun", "Love Strong", and "Hands Down". CD features some nice bonus tracks too – "Boogie All Summer (single)", "Relight My Fire (single)", "Hands Down (12" version)", "Hands Down (Hands Up)", "Relight My Fire (historical 1979 rmx)", and "Vertigo/Relight My Fire (progressive instrumental rmx)".

John Lee Hooker, Albert King, & OthersKing Strings – King/Federal/DeLuxe Guitar Grooves 1949 to 1962 (180 gram pressing) ... LP LP format
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

James & The Incredible ShowmanJames Brown's Boo-Ga-Loo (2 versions) ... 7-inch 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

Memphis SlimMemphis Slim ... CD CD format
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

John PattonBoogaloo ... CD CD format
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 LP format
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".

Watsonian InstituteMaster Funk/Extra Disco Perception ... CD CD format
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

Ben WebsterSoulville (Remastered edition) ... CD CD format
Verve, Mid 50s. Used ... $5.99
The stuff of legends, and one of the best sides that Webster cut for Verve in the 50s! The group's a quintet – with the usual suspects (Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, Herb Ellis, Stan Levey), and a rolling easy groove that's a perfect platform for Webster's gutsy tenor. Norman Granz's formula of easy swing sessions didn't always work for everyone, but in this case, it's a perfect format – as you'll hear on tracks like "Soulville", "Last Date", and "Ill Wind". CD also features 3 previously unissued tracks – "Who", "Boogie Woogie", and "Roses Of Picardy". CD

VariousCriminal Records – Law, Disorder, & The Pursuit Of Vinyl Justice ... CD CD format
Ace (UK), 1950s/Early 60s. Used ... $9.99
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.

A massive batch of music – and almost as worth it for the overall package as it is for the great tunes inside! Like other volumes in this series, this set is beautifully put together – not only stuffed with an amazing array of classic soul from a key year in the 70s – but also done with a full color booklet that's over 60 pages long – filled with track-by-track notes on the tunes, and filled with great photos, images, and historical data – an overall package put together by liner note giant Bill Dahl!

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.

Kent (UK), Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
