Pucho & The Latin Soul BrothersMucho Pucho ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1997. New Copy ... $13.99
A great revival set for Pucho & The Latin Soul Brothers – recorded at a time when the group was firmly coming back into the limelight, thanks to discovery and new appreciation by a generation of younger listeners! Pucho's still very much at the top of his game here – and brings in some 70s funk currents to freshen up his sound, but in a way that comes off better on this album than some of his other records of the same vintage. There's maybe one mis-step in which he has an MC doing a bit of rhyme, but the instrumental component of the other tracks is quite strong – sometimes funk, sometimes straighter Latin jazz – with instrumentation that includes vibes, trumpet, alto, and a bit of organ too. Titles include "Mission Impossible", "Kool & The Gang", "Heat", "Blues March", "Russ Dewbury Mambo", and "The Pain". CD

Chip TaylorLast Chance/Some Of Us ... CD
Warner/Morello (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $9.99
A pair of great albums from Chip Taylor – an artist who finally seems to be getting his due! Last Chance is a stone classic from Taylor – a very hip cat who was raised in New York, wrote a number of big pop hits in the 60s, but was always much more comfortable with country music in the end! The album's not straight country – but instead that perfect blend of rock roots and Nashville inspiration that was bubbling up in the American underground in the wake of the Byrds and Burrito Brothers – tried by many, but delivered by only a rare few like Chip at a level this good! The tunes are great – very thoughtful songwriting that puts Taylor on a par with Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson – and the backup group features some great steel guitar from Pete Drake, who really helps set the mood. Titles include "I Read It In Rolling Stone", "Son Of A Rotten Gambler", "The Real Thing", "101 In Cashbox", "Last Chance", and "I Wasn't Born In Tennessee". Some Of Us features singer/songwriter Chip Taylor at the height of his powers – finding a very comfortable space in the realm of mid 70s country rock – a genre he helped inspire with his own well-written songs for others in the 60s! The set's got a vibe that's maybe a bit more adult than some of Chip's other work – maybe an undercurrent of sadness that colors these tunes in a mode that's similar to some of Mickey Newbury's material from the time, although possibly a bit more put-together overall. And the record was done in Massachusetts, away from some of the more cliched crossover sounds of Nashville – which helps preserve Taylor's intent nicely. Songs include "Early Sunday Morning", "If You're Ever In Warsaw", "Comin From Behind", "If I Can't Be In Austin", and "Me As I Am". CD
