Georgie FameGeorgie Does His Thing With Strings/Knock On Wood/CBS Singles ... CD
CBS/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $11.99
Some of our favorite work ever from the mighty Georgie Fame – key tracks from his years on CBS – when he was really moving past straight jazz, into a whole great style of his own! First up is the full album Georgie Does His Thing With Strings – a set that has Georgie Fame singing with a host of string-heavy backings from the great Keith Mansfield! Given Mansfield's roots in the sound library scene, the style here is never as sleepy or hokey as you might expect from the "strings" in the title – but there is a moodier, mellower approach than you'd hear on other Fame albums – a style that's partially aimed at older jazz vocal modes, but which also echoes with sounds of the Scott Walker generation – a newly mature mode that's a really great fit for Georgie's unique style of singing, and which exposes yet another amazing side of his seemingly limitless talents! There's always a nice sense of warmth and wit going on – one that keeps these tunes from just being the usual sort of standard vocal fare of the period – and Mansfield's backings have a lean quality that often pulses with a very gentle groove at the bottom. Titles include "Who's Kissing You Blues", "Girl Talk", "This Guy's In Love With You", "A House Is Not A Home", "Woe Is Me", "Need Your Love So Bad", and "Guess Who I Saw Today". Next is the rare Knock On Wood EP – with four songs that include the title track, plus "Close The Door", "All I'm Asking", and "Didn't Want To Have To Do It". THEN – the CD adds in 21 more bonus tracks – almost all non-album single cuts by Fame from the late 60s and start of the 70s – most of which have never been reissued, and are a flurry of mad soul, clever vocals, and lots of hip instrumental twists – all delivered with that undeniable Georgie Fame charm. Titles include "Down Along The Cover", "Seventh Son", "No Thanks", "Try My World", "Bidin My Time", "For Your Pleasure", "Kentucky Child", "Peaceful", "Entertaining Mr Sloan", "Someday Man", and "The Movie Star Song".

Keith BarrowPhysical Attraction ... LP
CBS, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $2.99
A great secular set from Keith Barrow – a singer who started in gospel, but who's always been best-remembered for this modern soul gem from the 70s! Keith's got a great range to his vocals – one you can hear right from the start, as he dips and soars effortlessly with a quality that's clearly inspired by the spirit – but set here to some wicked smooth soul arrangements from Johnny Allen. The album's got a mix of clubby moments and some even better laidback cuts – and the set also features a few tunes penned by Ronn Matlock, an under-credited master of modern soul. Titles include "Turn Me Up", "Physical Attraction", "You Know You Want To Be Loved", "If It's Love That You're Looking For", "Garden Of Love", and "Free To Be Me". LP, Vinyl record album

BloodstoneWe Go A Long Way Back ... LP
CBS, 1982. Very Good ... $5.99
A killer late set by Bloodstone – one that holds on to all the excellent harmonies they brought to their 70s work, but which pushes their groove forward in a whole new direction! There's a warm modern glow to the set – one that works perfectly with the vocals – and the quintet still have a hell of a way with a ballad – singing in that slow-tripping style that was never too overly emotive, yet could pack a hell of a punch back in the day – especially in the wee hours! The tunes here are longer than before, and inflected by some rich arrangements by both the Isley Brothers and McKinley Jackson – and the set's got an Isleys-like approach by putting all the ballads on one side, and the groovers on another. These groovers really hold onto the harmonies wonderfully – making for a great follow-up to the ballads – and titles include the sublime smooth stepping track "We Go A Long Way Back", plus "Go On & Cry", "How Does It Feel", "Nite Time Fun", "My Love Grows Stronger", and "My Kind Of Woman".

Pauli CarmanDial My Number (with bonus track) ... CD
CBS/PTG (Netherlands), 1986. Used ... $6.99
An overlooked set from the 80s soul mainstream – the first solo album from the lead singer from Champaign! Pauli Carman's look on the cover definitely gives away the feel of the album – sweet 80s soul with a nice blend of beats and keyboards in the mix, all with the right sort of emphasis to balance out the vocals! Pauli's got a bit more bite than you'd expect for such a classy look on the cover – but he's also great at sliding into a mellow, or midtempo number – the kind of quiet storm 80s tracks that are often a good balance to the more beat-heavy tracks on a record like this. Titles include "Dial My Number", "Lose Control", "High & Low", "You Impress Me", "Flashback", "Close To The Bone", and "Dangerous". CD features the bonus track "Dial My Number (ext dance version)".

Guy DarnellI've Been Hurt – The Complete 60s Recordings ... CD
CBS/RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
Wonderful work from a singer who only scored one hit on the UK scene of the 60s, but who has a heck of a lot more to offer – as you'll hear on this overstuffed CD! Guy Darnell is a man of many modes – all of them great – a singer who can sometimes hit a Merseybeat jangle in his music, other times echo some of the R&B influences of the beat group generation, and most importantly, hit this fuller range of vocal modes that really have him stepping off in the best UK male tradition of the late 60s mainstream! Darnell's clearly got an influence from the Brill Building sound, but also pushes it into that more confident style that made a few key singers of his generation way more than just blue-eyed soul singers in the UK – as the progress of tracks here really show Guy getting more and more confident as things move on – able to croon like the best of the chart toppers, but also using more interesting elements in his music, including a bit of fuzz and psych on some of the most compelling cuts. This 28 track CD more than makes up for Guy's missing page in the history books – and features copious notes, plus singles for the CBS, Pye, Oriole, and Page One labels – titles that include "Big Louie", "Evil Woman", "I've Been Hurt", "Stupidity", "One Of These Days", "Go Home Girl", "Skyline Pigeon", "Crystal Ball", "What You Do About That", "Turn To Me", "Keep The Rain From Me", and "How Are You".

✨✧ Wolfgang Dauner TrioDream Talk ... LP
CBS/Be! (Germany), 1964. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
An early session from German pianist Wolfgang Dauner – one with a sound that's every bit as great as you'd expect from the title! The "dream talk" component here is one that comes from Dauner's gentle, yet modern approach to the keys – one that's clearly learning lessons from 50s modernists like George Russell or Bill Evans, but which is stretching out here in some of the bolder freedoms of the European scene at the time – a precursor to later modes on MPS and Saba, but performed here with a bit more careful restraint. The record's nicely free from some of the overindulgences of some of Dauner's 70s sides, and is an acoustic effort throughout – extremely imaginative, with a "set free" quality that's also never too "out", nor too full of itself – a bit like the best early recordings by Steve Kuhn. Wolfgang's approach to the keys is nothing less than revelatory – and he receives well matched accompaniment from bassist Eberhard Weber and drummer Fred Braceful. Titles include "Free Fall", "Dammerung", "Soul Eyes", "A Long Night", "Dream Talk", and "Bird Food". LP, Vinyl record album

DjavanLilas ... CD
CBS (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $9.99
The cover definitely reflects that 80s origin of the album – but as usual with Djavan, there's a lot more depth here going on than most of his contemporaries ever had to offer! The singer's less a Brazilian artist than a global soul star – singing in Portuguese, but with a quality that can really reach across borders – thanks in part to the jazzy currents in the music that Djavan picked up by recording the set in LA! There's some smooth fusiony touches that really underscore the best soulful qualities in the lyrics – on titles that include "Lilas", "Liberdade", "Canto Da Lira", "Miragem", "Obi", "Transe", and "Esquinas".

Lamont DozierWorking On You (with bonus tracks) ... CD
CBS (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $13.99
A sweet mellow groover from the mighty Lamont Dozier – a set that's not nearly as well known as his earlier work of the 70s, but one that has the Motown man still riding strong! In contrast to the fuller, clubbier grooves of Dozier's ABC work, most of the tunes here are a bit more laidback and mellow – still with a groove, but not nearly as full-on – and with a sophisticated, sensual feel that's a fair bit like Leon Ware at his best! Production is nice and warm throughout, but never too slick – and there's some really compelling keyboard bits, especially some use of Prophet 5, which makes for a nice contrast with Lamont's vocals. The whole thing's great – and titles include "Why", "Playing For Keeps", "Chained", "Cool Me Out", "Working On You", "Too Little Too Long", "Starting Over", and "You Made Me A Believer". CD features bonus tracks – single mixes of "Cool Me Out" and "Too Little Too Long". CD

Earth Wind & FireThat's The Way Of The World (expanded edition) ... CD
CBS, 1975. New Copy ... $5.99 6.99
Amazing! Earth Wind & Fire's ultimate moment of the 70s – and a perfect blending of all their influences that stands as a lasting tribute to their super-huge effect on soul music! The record features all aspects of the band coming into perfect cohesion – bassy funk, mellow soul, and afrocentric jazz – all expertly handled by the great Charles Stepney, who still has the same rich talent for blending styles that he had while working at Chess/Cadet during the glory days of the late 60s. Some of these songs have been played to death (and covered so much) over the years that it's often easy to forget what a crowning moment this was for former underground soul heroes Earth Wind & Fire – but we'll never cease to be amazed at the power of their mid 70s work, and this album's the best of the best. Titles include "Shining Star", "That's The Way Of The World", "Reasons", "Africano", "See The Light", and "Happy Feelin". CD also features 5 bonus tracks – "Shining Star (future star)", "All About Love (first impressions)", "Happy Feelin (anatomy of a groove)", "Caribou Chaser (jazzy jam)", and "That's The Way Of The World (Latin expedition)".

CBS/Philadelphia International, 1973. Very Good ... $11.99
Excellent work by this oft-overlooked east coast harmony group! Like a rare few groups at the time, The Ebonys had a sound that mixed male and female harmonies – in a sweetly mellow sound that was a lot hipper than more famous groups that used the style, and which had all the best elements of the Philly group approach of the early 70s. The set features some great tracks by Gamble & Huff – plus the group's incredible tune "Life In The Country" – a slow mellow stepper that never gets old! Other tracks include "It's Forever", "Hook Up & Get Down", "I Believe", "Sexy Ways", "Nation Time", and "You're The Reason Why". LP, Vinyl record album

An overlooked set of late disco tracks from this sweet little group – produced and arranged by the great Tony Valor, with the best soulful qualities of some of his earlier work! Valor has a way of really getting beyond cliche on a record like this – and goes for rhythms that are simple and straightforward – and which often use as much funk as they do conventional disco. There's a snapping 80s groove approach to some of the better cuts on the set – complete with a bit of spoken sing-song vocals that could almost be considered a bit of a nod to hip hop – but which have more of a Fatback sort of approach overall.

Nice set that brings together some of Georgie's later jazz vocal tracks for Columbia/CBS – most of which are a lot more far-reaching than his earlier "beat group" recordings. Some of the material has a bit more of a rockish feel, and other stuff has more of a trippy sound, but at the root of it all is Georgie's jazzy swinging vocals. Titles include "Blossom", "Ask Me Nice", "When I'm Sixty Four", "Try My World", "And I Love Her", and "The Ballad Of Bonnie & Clyde". Nice stuff, and hard to find on wax! CD

Stan GetzMaster ... CD
Columbia (France), 1975. New Copy ... About March 3, 2017
A gem of a session from Stan Getz – recorded in 1975, but unissued until the mid 80s! The set was probably lost amidst the flurry of more dramatic jazz recorded by CBS at the time – as it's a relatively understated session that has Stan blowing with acoustic accompaniment from Albert Dailey on piano, Clint Houston on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – a great return to basics amidst some of Stan's more concept-oriented sessions for the label at the time. Don't let that understated quality stop you, though, because the album's one of Stan's most far-reaching – with very long tracks that feature the kind of freer blowing that Getz brought to classics like Sweet Rain, Captain Marvel, and Dynasty – and if you dig any of those, you'll find a very similar energy here! Titles include "Invitation", "Summer Night", and "Raven's Wood". CD

As the cover states, the ensemble's led by bassist Jimmy Garrison and drummer Elvin Jones – and also features McCoy Tyner from Coltrane's quartet – yet the real charm of the record comes from the reed men, who include Prince Lasha on flute and clarinet, Sonny Simmons on alto and English horn, and Charles Davis on baritone sax! All players are free-thinking modernists, with ties to some of the farther reaches of 60s jazz – yet they work here in a beautifully inside mode, similar to Lasha's excellent Insight album on CBS UK – a vibe that takes all the most wonderful aspects of the Coltrane generation, but pushes them even further with some deeply personal expressions. Tracks include the seminal "Half & Half" – plus "Aborigine Dance In Scotland", "Oriental Flower", and "Nuttin Out Jones", and "Gettin On Way". CD

✨✧ RotomagusSky Turns Red – The Complete Anthology ... LP
Lion, Early 70s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99
Rare rock from Rotomagus – a heavy group from France – the complete discography of the group, and a completely fresh discovery to us! The sound is loose, ragged and raw on the unreleased album demo that's covers the first half of the anthology – which only enhances the power of it. Singer Alain Fontaine sings, screams and wails in English – fascinatingly, he is a good singer, but shrieks his head off with abandon on some killer songs here. The band is just as strong, showing command of rhythm and with strong solos as well as bashing away with intensity. In some ways, it's a late 60s-style heavy psych album, but played at breakneck speed, rugged soul and with little effort to tidy anything up. The second half is much different – featuring singles the group cut for Polydor, CBS and other labels – far less raucous and more French pop psych-indebted, and those numbers are great, too! They work as well in frenzy as they do with trippy harmonies – very impressive! Titles include "Laureline", "Little Green Man", "Fighting Cock", "Shout Now", "I Dig Life", "The Flufluting Flatmul" and more from the unreleased demo album, plus the rare singles "Le Haut Du Pave", "Nevada", "Eros", "Madame Wanda", "Laureline", "The Sky Turns Red" and more.

Three DegreesStanding Up For Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/FTG, 1977. New Copy ... $8.99 13.98
A sweet late 70s set from The Three Degrees – who've moved on over to CBS/Epic after their hot streak at Philly International – with a bit more of an expansive sound than usual! They're still working in a core Philly mode with recording at Sigma Sound and arrangements by Richard Rome – but also with tunes that hit a growing range of more sophisticated, adult-oriented themes. The trio are clearly out to show that they're not just a dancefloor act here – as the album features some sensitive ballads – great work from the trio of Sheila Ferguson, Valerie Holiday and the returning Helen Scott. Titles include the slightly funky "Macaroni Man", plus "People With Feeling", "What I Did For Love", "We're All Alone", "Gee Baby", "Standing Up For Love", "In Love We Grow", and "Just Leave Me Alone". 3 bonus tracks on this CD version – "Toast Of Love (non album single)", "Do It (Use Your Mind) (single version)", and "Standing Up For Love (single version)".

Betty WrightWright Back At You (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/FTG, 1983. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
Betty Wright looks a lot different on the cover than during her early Alston Records years – and she sounds a lot different here, too – but in a way that really has the soul singer stretching out her wings! Most of the record was handled by Marlon Jackson – of Jacksons fame – and the sound is a mix of smooth modern soul groovers and a few more upbeat numbers that really push Wright's vocals in a great way! A few numbers here are definitely hitting that crossover mode that CBS was using with Denise Williams, Cheryl Lynn, and a few of its other soul singers at the time – but the best numbers are deeper, more mellow, and have a warmly sophisticated mode that really gets Betty past the rougher moments of her youth, and takes her into a more adult territory that we really like. These tracks include "Special Love", "I Promise You", "Show Me", and "She's Older Now" – alongside other numbers that include "Burning Desire", "Be Your Friend", and "Live Love Rejoice". CD features bonus tracks – "Special Love (7" version)", "She's Older Now (7" version)", "Burning Desire (12" version)", and "Burning Desire (7" version)". CD

A stunner of a set – one that goes way way past familiar psych classics of the late 60s – and explosively shows the huge wave of new sounds and ideas that were going down on the UK scene in 1967! The package brings together 80 tracks from a huge number of labels – Pye, Polydor, MGM, Regal Zonophone, Track, CBS, and so many others – plus material licensed from the artists themselves – all in a mindblowing array of rare singles that capture that perfect moment when things started to get tripped-out, but never too self-indulgent – when artists were able to pack a universe of freak and fuzz into the space of a three minute single! Think of key early 45s by Pink Floyd or The Move, and you'll get the vibe here – on titles that include "Busker Bill" by The Truth, "Cept Me" by Focal Point, "Toyland" by Alan Bown, "Subway" by The Tickle, "Time To Start Loving You" by The Mickey Finn, "The Squire Blew His Horn" by The Uglys, "Your Servant Stephen" by The Peep Show, "Toy Soldier" by The Riot Squad with David Bowie, "Eiderdown Clown" by The Scots Of St James, "Cos It's Over" by The Summer Set, "Evil Woman" by Guy Darnell, "Look At The Sun" by Louise, "Flames" by Elmer Gantry's Velvet Opera, "Smokeytime Springtime" by The Doves, "Keep It Out Of Sight" by Paul & Barry Ryan, "Listen To The Sky" by The Sands, "Laughing Man" by The Marmalade, "Ginger" by TJ Assembly, and "Pink Purple Yellow & Red" by The Sorrows.

A mighty nice collection of Northern Soul gems – all pulled from the vaults of Columbia, CBS, Epic, Okeh, RCA, and related labels – and stuffed together in a package that's a hell of a bargain for all these rare tracks! And when we say "stuffed", we don't mean that the tracks are crammed thoughtlessly together – because there's a really wonderful sense of timing to the whole thing – a groove that starts out strong, and keeps going long! There's also a nicely updated feel to the selections, too – lots of tracks you wouldn't have found on a 60s soul collection 20 years back – partly because the cuts have only been uncovered in recent years, or because they fit well into the ever-evolving understanding of Northern Soul. 61 tracks in all – and titles include "Paris Blues" by Tony Middleton, "Temptation Is Calling My Name" by Lee David, "Moonlight Music & You" by Laura Greene, "I'm Not Ready" by Ujima, "Everybody's Going To The Love-In" by Bob Brady & The Con-Chords, "I'll Always Need You" by Dean Courtney, "That's What I Want To Know" by James Carr, "I Don't Want To Talk About It" by Nancy Ames, "He's Coming Home" by Beverly Ann, "I Still Love You" by Seven Souls, and "Born A Loser" by Don Ray.

✨✧ VariousSunday Sunshine – The World Of SNB Records ... CD
SNB/RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful collection of sunshine pop tunes from the end of the 60s – groovy stuff from the CBS bankrolled SNB Records – a short lived UK subsidiary that still managed to bang out a bunch of gems in just a couple years! The tunes go from between pop psychedelia, to more more moddish numbers, full on boisterous tunes and some mellower ones. There's a nice mix of male and female lead singers, and the roster that has a pretty wide stylistic range – but share a purely endearing groove! 20 tracks in all: "Alice" by Jon Plum, "We Don't Care" by Hubert Thomas Calverde & The HT's, "Feeling High" by Mellow Candle, "Quiet Man" by Sheila Scott Wilkinson, "In A Dream" by Clive Sands, "Now Is The Time" by David Blake, "Infatuation" by Nicola Davies, "Nina" by Rory Fellows and more.

✨✧ Jack DowningForce That Cannot Be Named – The Jack Downing Anthology ... CD
RPM (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
American sounds, but forged in Sweden – a surprisingly great batch of work from expatriate Jack Downing – including some rare singles, previously unreleased tunes, and even some live material too! Downing clearly picks up some of the folk rock styles of the post-Dylan generation – but he's also got this rough, raspy style of singing that's much more garagey at points than any folkies in the US – a weird sort of hybrid that only gets more interesting as the music here moves into the early 70s! The package brings together a full album recorded for RCA in Sweden, singles for Karusell, RCA, and CBS, and some live material recorded for Swedish radio too – 37 tracks that include "No Man's Land", "Out My Light", "Muddy Water", "Queen Jane Approximately", "Branded Man", "Only Dadd That'll Walk The Line", "The Kind Of Words", "Greenback Dollar", and "Going To California".

✨✧ Elvin Jones/Jimmy Garrison SextetIllumination! (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Impulse, 1963. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An amazingly unique little group – one that kind of stepped in the Impulse Records back door from the Coltrane galaxy, but which features some very unique aspects overall! As the cover states, the ensemble's led by bassist Jimmy Garrison and drummer Elvin Jones – and also features McCoy Tyner from Coltrane's quartet – yet the real charm of the record comes from the reed men, who include Prince Lasha on flute and clarinet, Sonny Simmons on alto and English horn, and Charles Davis on baritone sax! All players are free-thinking modernists, with ties to some of the farther reaches of 60s jazz – yet they work here in a beautifully inside mode, similar to Lasha's excellent Insight album on CBS UK – a vibe that takes all the most wonderful aspects of the Coltrane generation, but pushes them even further with some deeply personal expressions. Tracks include the seminal "Half & Half" – plus "Aborigine Dance In Scotland", "Oriental Flower", and "Nuttin Out Jones", and "Gettin On Way". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bonnie PointerIf The Price Is Right (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Private I/FTG, 1984. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Bonnie Pointer sounding great in the mid 80s– on a hard-to-find album cut for Private I/CBS after a drawn out split with Motown – one that finds her in a prime, catchy dancefloor R&B mode! To our ears, If The Price Is Right holds up as well as a lot of the pop soul of the period, including Bonnie's siblings The Pointer Sisters – though it obviously didn't hit as hugely! It's got crisp keyboards, programming and 80s boogie, but there's also some room for more more tender balladry and chugging club soul reminiscent of the late disco years. Of course, Bonnie's lovely, soulful voice is the most important characteristic. An overlooked album that's well worth catching up with! Include "Premonition", "Johnny", "Come Softly To Me", "Under The Influence Of Love", "Your Touch", "Tight Blue Jeans", "There's Nobody Quite Like You" and "If The Price Is Right". This FTG CD has a whopping 9 bonus tracks – single, club, dub and extended 12" mixes and more – including "Your Touch (Club Version)", "Premonition (Dance Version)", "There's Nobody Quite Like You (Single Version)", "The Beast In Me (12" Version)", "Heaven" from The Heavenly Bodies soundtrack.
