Buddy MilesBooger Bear ... CD
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1973. Used ... $7.99
Organ and drums drenched funky soul from Buddy Miles – his Booger Bear set from '73 that's strangely become on his most slept on records of the era – cool stuff well worth digging into! The sound ranges from wild, uptempo funk rock to more measured jams – with Buddy's own heady title track storming out of the gate to start. Electric piano and Arp synthesizer is quite prominent, of course not so much as Buddy's drum work – with some pretty tasty guitars and punchy horns throughout. Titles include "Booger Bear", "Thinking Of You", "Why", a funky soul cover of "You Really Got Me" that almost sounds like what Stevie Wonder might have done with the tune at the time, "Love", "United Nations Stomp", "You Are Everything" and "Louie's Blues".

Buddy MilesThem Changes ... CD
Mercury/Universal (UK), 1970. Used ... $9.99
A landmark album of crossover funk – fuzzed out rock, soul, and jazzy licks all coming into play together – held totally tight by drummer Buddy Miles, the undisputed king of his scene! Buddy's drums are super-heavy – holding down his Freedom Express group with a heavy jazz-rock sound that would soon have a huge influence on other groups. Includes Buddy's original version of "Them Changes" – a tune that was instantly covered by everyone at the time – plus the cuts "Memphis Train", "Your Feeling Is Mine", "Dreams", and "Down By The River". One for the Fillmore crowd! CD

✨✧ Buddy MilesChapter VII ... CD
CBS/Wounded Bird, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
A killer chapter in the great early run of Buddy Miles – really genre-busting work that managed to cross over big to a number of crowds back in the day! As with his Mercury work, Miles has a wicked mix of soul, funk, rock, and blues going on here – but one that's percolated together strongly, so that it's not just a cribbing of famous styles – and instead comes across as something really new in the process – kind of a fresh vibe for all the cats who were willing to cross the tracks and change things up in their music at the time. Johnny Bristol handles production for the set, but it's still got the heavy groove you'd find on earlier Miles records – and the album features guest appearances from Carlos Santana, plus Latin percussion luminaries Wille Bobo and Victor Pantoja. Titles include "LA Resurrection", "Life Is What You Make It (parts 1 & 2)", "Elvira", "Hear No Evil", "Love Affair", "Visions", and "Crossfire". CD

VariousCafe Apres Midi – Skye & Gryphon For Cafe Apres Midi ... CD
Skye (Japan), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $24.99
Groovy jazz from 2 very cool labels – the related Skye and Gryphon companies of the late 60s and mid 70s, respectively – home to some very very cool bits! Skye's best known as the home of Cal Tjader and Gary McFarland in their post-Verve years – and the label's got a feel that's very much in the spirit of both artists – often blending together jazz, Latin, and easy grooves with a dreamy floating sort of quality. Gryphon recordings came a few years later – and had a warm and mellow 70s jazz sort of feel – using richer production to deeply color work by a variety of well-known artists who got a chance to stretch out in their albums for the label. Despite the difference of a few years between them, the work from both labels sits very nicely together here – thanks to an expert job of compilation by Toru Hashimoto, the force behind the Cafe Apres Midi and Free Soul series! Titles include "Mixing" by Airto, "What's Going On" and "My Favorite Things" by Louis Hayes, "Tandoori" by Barry Miles, "Flea Market" and "Suburbia" by Gary McFarland, "Theme From Peter Gunn" by Chuck Rainey, "Don't Fence Me In" by Grady Tate, "Viva Peraza" by Armando Peraza, "La Pasionaria" by Michel Legrand, "You'll Never Get To Heaven" and "Armando's Bossa" by Cal Tjader, "Bluesette" by Mel Torme & Buddy Rich, and "Change Partners" by Phil Woods.

VariousGroove – Belgium Popcorn – Blended Soul & R&B With Eastern Promise ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
Not entirely soul, but not really pop either – and instead a special sort of space that's always been dug by soul fans in the Belgian scene! The groove here was dubbed "popcorn" many years back – and it features soulful vocals coming into play with tight 60s production – stomping rhythms, sparkling strings, and perfect production that often brings in some cool echoey touches to the mix! The feel here is quite different than the usual northern soul set of this nature – and a great illustration that there's still so much to learn about 60s soul music in general – as evidenced by the range of artists included, and the great record label images inside the cover! Titles include "Promised Land" by Buddy Lamp, "I Gotta Run" by Bobby Scott, "That's All It Takes" by Carrol Connors, "Let Her Go" by Gene Stridel, "Steady Cha Cha" by Frank Pizani, "Quite Girl" by Don Rondo, "Cha Cha Italiano" by Mary Mazza, "You'll Come Back" by Ronny Douglas, and "Living Dream" by Lenny Miles.

✨✧ VariousHard To Handle – Black America Sings Otis Redding ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The music of Otis Redding – sung by some of his hippest contemporaries, and by a whole new generation inspired by his talents! The tunes here are all numbers you'd know from Redding's famous recordings for Stax and Atlantic – yet the versions are nice and fresh – some done with a gritty down-home feel that's rougher than any of Redding's records, others done with an inventive style that pushes the music forward into new modes – possibly those that Otis might have explored on his own, had he not been taken from us so soon! The package is a great testament to the Otis Redding legacy in soul music – and is filled with a whopping 25 tracks, all of them well-chosen – including "Baby Cakes" by Maxine Brown, "Just One More Day" by Clarence Carter, "Give Away None Of My Love" by Buddy Miles, "Wholesale Love" by Arthur Conley, "Hawg For You" by Tina Britt, "Hard To Handle" by Patti Drew, "Chained & Bound" by Bettye Swann, "I'm Missing You" by Mitty Collier, "Sister Pitiful" by Judy Clay, "These Arms Of Mine" by Albert Washington & The Kings, "Monkey On My BacK" by Jackie Hairston – plus the previously unreleased "Loving By The Pound (part 2)" by Otis Redding himself!
