BedheadWhatFunLifeWas (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Numero, 1994. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
The first album from Bedhead – a 1994 record that helped usher in something of a quiet revolution in 90s indie rock – paving the way for lusher, moodier and slower soundscapes, soon be dubbed slowcore! Bedhead is as much a breath of fresh air a couple decades later, delivering a timeless, moody sound that takes some cues from the vibe of the Velvet Underground at their mellowest, and more recent trailblazers like Spaceman 3 – but ultimately deliver their own distinctive, and now oft-imitated sound. Includes "Liferaft", "Haywire", "Bedside Table", "The Unpredictable", "Landlord", "Crushing", "Unfinished", "Powder", "Foaming Love", "To The Ground", "Living Well" and "Wind Down".

Hamiet BluiettNali Kola ... CD
Soul Note (Italy), 1989. Used ... $6.99
A real standout session from reedman Hamiet Bluiett – a record that's heavy on Afro-centric influences, with lots of heavy percussion at the bottom, and a rare jazz combo appearance for the time by trumpeter Hugh Masekela! There's kind of an earthy loft jazz sort of feel to the date – almost spontaneous creation, as Bluiett plays baritone sax and flute, and Masekela trumpet and flugelhorn, over percussion from Chief Bey, Titos Sompa, Seku Tonga, and Okeryema Asante – the last of whom we know from his record for the Black Fire label. Plunky plays soprano sax on one number – furthering the Black Fire connection – and other musicians include Donald Smith on piano and Billy Spaceman Patterson on guitar, each on one track. Quincy Troupe delivers some hip poetry on the cut "Snake Back Solos" – and other titles include "Bouka", "Enum", "Broken Sticks", and "Nali Kola". CD

Gene ChandlerTwo Sides Of Gene Chandler ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $15.99
A fantastic lost album by the great Gene Chandler – and one of his most sophisticated soul documents! The record was Gene's last album for Brunswick – issued shortly before Gene scored big once again on Mercury, which is why it's probably often lost in the shuffle of time. The record's got some incredibly dark material that shows a different side of Gene than you'd expect from earlier hits – including the incredible track "Suicide", which is a magnificent "Iceman" track in the Chicago tradition, that features the main character contemplating suicide as a means of dealing with his sorrow. Other titles include "If You Would Love Me", "The Sun Died", "This Bitter Earth", "Eleanor Rigby", and a remake of "Can I Change My Mind". CD

Garland GreenJealous Kind Of Fella ... CD
Uni/Varese, 1968/1995. Used ... $17.99
A classic! This is one of the best soul albums ever to come out of Chicago, and it's a really great blend of the Jerry Butler "iceman" style (very big in Chi-town) and the deeper soul sound of the west side. With the great title cut, and lots more goodies like "Don't Think That I'm a Violent Guy", "You Played on a Player", and "Love Now, Pay Later". Plus, this CD includes 2 bonus cuts – "He Didn't Know (He Kept On Talking)" and "Let The Good Times Roll" – which were both singles that Garland did for Spring in the 70's. CD

Garland GreenLove Is What We Came Here For ... LP
RCA, 1977. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Tougher to find than his classic on UNI, believe it or not. Leon Haywood produced this, and it's got a much smoother feel than Garland Green's UNI hits, which is a great way to hear the smooth soul of Chicago's second (or third) Iceman. Lots of nice ones here, like "I've Quit Running the Streets", "Moody Woman", and the great title cut, plus "I Found Myself When I Lost You", "Lovin You Baby" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover is heavily stained and wrinkled on the bottom half, with a promo stamp on back, and a large radio station sticker on front.)

Ice Man's BandIntroducing The Ice Man's Band ... LP
Mercury, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold ... $5.99
A pretty great album by The Ice Man's Band – the instrumental group who worked behind Jerry "Iceman" Butler on some of his cool early 70s work. The album's nice and laidback – with some very nice mellow keyboards and smooth dope guitar, and the whole thing's a very nice kicked-back instrumental set. Reggie Burke is on the keys, and the real highlight on here is the group's amazing cover of "People Make the World Go Round", a sample favorite from way back! Also includes "It's Down to That", "To Be Continued", "I Wanna Be Where You Are", and a bunch of Jerry Butler hits. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, a cutout hole and fully split top & bottom seams.)

Chuck JacksonGolden Classics ... CD
Collectables, Early 60s. Used ... $3.99
Legendary Iceman soul from the inventor of the genre! The set's got 12 of Chuck's best from his early years on Wand, including "Any Day Now", "I Don't Want To Cry", "I Wake Up Crying", "Beg Me", "Any Other Way", and "Tell Him I'm Not Home". Heartbreaking, and very soulful! CD

Walter JacksonSpeak Her Name ... LP
Okeh, 1967. Very Good ... $24.99
Unbelievably beautiful work – and possibly the greatest album ever from the mighty Walter Jackson! Jackson was one of the best singers to come out of the Chicago soul scene of the 60s, and his Okeh recordings are a perfect example of the city's sophisticated approach to Iceman soul – as perfected by Walter, Jerry Butler, and (later) Garland Green. The arrangements are by Riley Hampton, and they have a cold fragile beauty that lingers somewhere between a Scott Walker album and Riley's earlier work with Lorez Alexandria – and the no-filler selection of songs is one of Jackson's best ever– a range of work that really show his deep talents, and his maturing approach to a tune – proud, powerful, and a new level of adult sophistication in soul. Titles include the amazing title cut "Speak Her Name" – plus "Corner In The Sun", "My One Chance To Make It", "It's An Uphill Climb To The Bottom", and "Not You". Fantastic stuff, and one of the most powerful soul records we can think of! LP, Vinyl record album

Erkin KorayElektronik Turkuler (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Turkofon/Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1974. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
A masterpiece of Turkish psychedelia – and quite possibly the greatest album ever from Turkish psychedelic maestro Erkin Koray – a mad blend of sounds that definitely lives up to its "elektronik" title! Most numbers feature a weird blend of electric guitar and baglama – used in a style that's similar to Koray's earlier Arabesk recordings, but in ways that are often more tripped out and free-thinking – almost in a groove that's similar to late 60s blends of Eastern influences and progressive rock in the US and Europe – but even wilder and weirder throughout! There's a bit of vocals on the set, but the instrumentation dominates – and titles include "Sir", "Karli Daglar", "Cemalim", "Inat", "Hele Yar", "Turku", and "Korkulu Ruya". LP, Vinyl record album

Sun RaIt's After The End Of The World ... CD
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1970. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the key non-Saturn Sun Ra albums of the 70s – and like his records for Blue Thumb and Impulse, a set that really helped awaken the world to his talents! This album may well be one of the most bracing of the bunch – as it features live material recorded by Ra and the Arkestra at two different German jazz festivals in 1970 – performances that really have the group at the height of their righteous power, stretching out with a sound that's even more avant than just a few years before! The reed solos are all quite strong – and include work by Pat Patrick, John Gilmore, Danny Davis, Danny Thompson, and Marshall Allen – plus some other oboe, bass clarinet, and bassoon players too – and the lovely June Tyson provides some righteous words in a few spots, while Ra plays a range of keyboards – from clavinet, to farfisa, Hohner electra, mini-moog, Spacemaster, and rocksichord! Titles include "Black Forest Myth", "Strange Dreams – Strange World – Black Myth", and "Myth Versus Reality (The Myth Science Approach)". CD

Moacir SantosMaestro ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
Amazing 70s work from Moacir Santos – the first album the Brazilian arranger recorded for Blue Note, and a set that sparkles with warmth and soul from the very first note! The approach is a brilliant updating of the famous sound that Santos crafted in Brazil the decade before – recast here with some warmer elements that includes great organ from Clare Fischer, electric piano from Bill Henderson, trombone from Frank Rosolino, and flute and tenor from Don Menza! Santos sings on a number of tracks, but in this cool angular way that's often right in line with the instrumentation – almost submerged a bit in the mix, as an element that gives the record a strong degree of warmth. The album's unlike any other we can think of – even a bit different than Santos' two other albums for Blue Note – and has a wonderful fusion of influences that never fails to delight our ears over the years! Titles include his version of "Nana", which was performed often by others – plus "Luanne", "Bluishmen", "Kermis", "Mother Iracema", and "Astral Whine". CD

VariousUltimate Breaks & Beats Vol 3 & 4 ... CD
Street Beat, 1980s. Used ... $9.99
Nice one! The Ultimate B & B series needs no introduction from us, and now it's becoming available on CD, with the volumes 3 & 4 gathered together on one disc! Volume 3's one of the best-remembered of the Ultimate Breaks & Beats titles, the one with the spaceman with a mohawk and a boom box on the cover – a sublime assortment of funky tracks, many of which were crucial to the early sound of hip hop! As usual, several of the tracks have an edit that extends the break: "Bongo Rock" by the Incredible Bongo Band, "Pussy Footer" by Jackie Robinson, "Different Strokes" by Syl Johnson, "I Know You Got Soul" by Bobby Byrd and "I Think I'd Do It" by Z.Z. Hill, plus the unedited versions of "Got To Be Real" by Cheryl Lynn, "Apache" by the Incredible Bongo Band , "Dance To The Drummer's Beat" by Herman Kelly & Life, "Give It To You" by UPP, "Sing Sing" by Gaz, "Breakthrough" by Isaac Hayes, "Looking Out My Window" by Tom Jones and "Funky Music Is The Thing" by the Dynamic Corvettes.

Joe TurnerBig Joe Rides Again ... CD
Atlantic, Late 50s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Joe Turner rides again – but in a style that's a bit more like his Kansas City roots than some of the R&B he was cutting for Atlantic Records in the 50s! There's a nice jazz vibe to the record – thanks to sharp arrangements from Ernie Wilkins, who's really coming into his own here – and knows how to serve up just the right blend of modern jazz and swinging soul to make the tunes work! The ensemble is filled with jazz heavyweights too – including Seldon Powell, Coleman Hawkins, Pete Brown, and Jerome Richardson on reeds – plus Ernie Royal on trumpet. But Joe's vocals definitely take center stage – infused with all the heavy power he'd assumed during this seminal comeback decade – still bluesy, but with a lot more punch than before. Titles include "Switchin In The Kitchen", "I Get The Blues When It Rains", "Nobody In Mind", "Don't You Make Me High", and "Here Comes Your Iceman". CD

✨✧ Lou DonaldsonNatural Soul ... LP
Blue Note, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pivotal record from Lou Donaldson – one that has him forging out some of his first funky soul jazz sounds, moving from his bop roots, and working with a hip young group that includes Grant Green and John Patton, both of whom he discovered and brought to Blue Note (thanks Lou!) The tracks have a tight jaunty feel – very much like those on Patton's mid 60s sides for Blue Note, with lots of room for each player to solo intently – but still a strong focus on the overall groove of the ensemble. Cover's very nice – and tracks include "Funky Mama", "Spaceman Twist", and "Nice n Greasy". LP, Vinyl record album

Pacemaker Entertainment/Lion (Canada), 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A legendary set from the Canadian 60s underground – a landmark record from a group who've gone onto become huge over the years with psych collectors, even though they never cracked the charts (or the US market) at the time! The set's way more than just another obscure rock release – as it's got a sharpness, tightness, and sense of songcraft that matches some of the bigger names in the US scene at the time – put together with a style that knows when to open up, but never loses itself in self-indulgence either. There's some surprisingly strong harmonies throughout the tunes – which often have a fuzzy, rollicking edge, but without losing sight of the sunny groove – and titles include "Epistle To Paradise", "Shadows Of Your Mind", "Art's A Happy Man", "Bridge Under A Sky", the epic centerpiece "You Don't Care", "Face Behind The Sun", "Dainty General Rides", and "Civilization Machine". CD
Also available Plastic Cloud ... LP 11.99
