Billy PaulLet 'Em In ... CD
Philadelphia International/CEMA, 1976. Used ... $4.99
Probably not Paul's strongest record, but you can't deny his voice sounds great and we're never ones to argue with Gamble & Huff production. Recorded at Sigma Sound and features arrangements and productions by Dexter Wansel alongside Jack Faith and Gamble & Huff, this album still represents the Philly sound nicely. Includes the title track, a cover of McCartney's "Let 'Em In", "How Good is Your Game", Wansel's "Love Won't Come Easy", "Word Gets Around", and "I Think I'll Stay Home Today." CD

David Brent (Ricky Gervais)Life On The Road ... CD
BBC/Universal (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
A big leap into the musical mind of David Brent – aka the character created by Ricky Gervais for the original UK version of The Office – now off to follow his dream as a singer/songwriter! The music here follows from those last few musical moments that Gervais gave us on the final installment of The Office UK – with maybe a bit less of the sexy soul vibe, and more of an earnest songwriter vibe – with some hilarious attempts at "correct" politics! Make no mistake, this is definitely an album of music – not comedic bits – and the songs are performed and produced at a level that's totally straight – so much so, they almost feel like lost AOR numbers from the late 70s, until you plug into the wit of the lyrics and their delivery by Gervais. Titles include "Spaceman", "Please Don't Make Fun Of The Disableds", "Lady Gypsy", "Native American", "Life On The Road", "Freelove Freeway", "Ain't No Trouble", "Electricity", and "Don't Cry It's Christmas".

✨✧ Jerry ButlerMore Of The Best Of Jerry Butler ... LP
Vee Jay, Early 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
Some of our favorite tunes ever by Jerry Butler – a great collection that brings together some of his hits and some of his lesser known work for Vee Jay. The Iceman style is very firmly in place here – and next to hits like "I Stand Accused" and "Need To Belong", you'll get other great tracks like "I Don't Want To Hear It Anymore", "Strawberries", "Just Be True", and "Just A Little Bit". Also includes a few duets with Betty Everett, like "Ain't That Loving You Baby", "Let It Be Me", and "Smile". LP, Vinyl record album

Guido & Maurizio De AngelisLa Polizia Incrimina La Legge Assolve (aka High Crime) (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Beat/Four Flies (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
One of the first great Italian cop movies of the 70s – and a superbly-scored film with a really wonderful soundtrack! The DeAngelis brothers are clearly drawing heavily from an American tradition initiated by Lalo Schfrin – using heavy guitar, funky undercurrents, and even some soulfully righteous touches to really set this one apart from other Italian films of the time. Yet the approach here is also a bit more different, touches with some of the darker modes and more redemptive themes of Italian westerns – a sense of suspension and drama that's incredibly powerful, and heard to best effect on the solo instrumental passages – which include guitar by Maurizio and flute by Guido. Titles include "The Life Of A Policeman", "Chicca", "To The Sea", "Casa Di Moda", "Festa A Genova", "Gangster's Story", and "Rock Al Porto". LP, Vinyl record album

Lou DonaldsonNatural Soul ... CD
Blue Note, 1962. Used ... $4.99
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". CD features one bonus track too – "People Will Say We're In Love". CD

Garland GreenVery Best Of Garland Green – 24 Tracks From Chicago's Master Soul Singer's Illustrious Career ... CD
Kent (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $11.99
A windy city hero – the amazing Garland Green, a singer who makes us mighty proud we hail from Chicago! Garland's got an incredible style that few others can touch – partly schooled in the 60s iceman modes of Jerry Butler and Walter Jackson, with all the sophistication that might imply – but also often given a raspier twist, with slightly southern echoes that make Garland's music feel even more deeply personal! And while most folks know Green's big hits for the Uni label, this package shows a rich legacy that goes much father than that – work recorded for labels that include Cotillion, Spring, RCA, Ocean Front, and Revue – in addition to some key Uni tracks. This trans-label set really does a wonderful job of showing the full range of Garland's mighty talents – a sublime set of soul cuts that run from the start of the 70s right up to the early 80s modern years – packaged with detailed notes too. Titles include "Since You've Been Gone", "These Arms", "Just Loving You", "Just My Way Of Loving You", "He Didn't Know", "Don't Think That I'm A Violent Guy", "Love's Calling", "Just What The Doctor Ordered", "Sweet Loving Woman", "Ask Me What You Want", "You Played On A Player", "Don't Let Love Walk Out On Us", and "Sending My Best Wishes".

Chuck JacksonOn Tour/Dedicated To The King!! ... CD
Wand/Kent (UK), 1964/1967. Used ... $1.99
2 of Chuck Jackson's more unusual albums for Wand Records – back to back on one CD! On Tour is a great little live set that has Jackson opening up with a range of more grooves than usual – picking up some jazzy touches on a few songs, moving into Motown on a few others, and returning to his original Iceman groove on the rest. The crowd noise is very up in the mix – and from what we can tell, the album feels more live than the usual "canned" 60s set of this type, bristling with more electricity than we might expect from Chuck! Dedicated To The King is even more unusual – as "The King", in this case, is Elvis – which makes for a very strange album for Jackson! The album has Chuck dropping his Iceman style for a rougher, almost southern soul-styled approach – a mode that would show up more strongly on later albums, and which works surprisingly well with a set of Elvis tunes here! CD features 21 tracks in all – including live takes on "Billie Baby", "Any Other Way", "Stand By Me", "Please Please Please", "Beg Me", "I Don't Want To Cry", "Chuck's Soul Brothers Twist", and "I Wake UP Crying" – plus Elvis tunes "Hound Dog", "Don't Be Cruel", "Love Me Tender", "It's Now Or Never", and "I Forgot To Remember To Forget You".

✨✧ LeadersUnforseen Blessings ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1989. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of the strongest albums from the Leaders sextet – an ensemble that features 6 of America's best left-of-center players of the time – all of them leaders of their own groups, putting aside ego to come together beautifully here! The set features Lester Bowie on trumpet, Arthur Blythe on alto, Chico Freeman on tenor and soprano, Kirk Lightsey on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Don Moye on percussion – all jamming to a set of original tunes that vary between longer numbers and shorter bits that are interspersed between the tracks – a balance that further underscores the creativity of the players. Titles include "Lucia", "Now A Moment", "Heaven Dance", "Peacemaker", "The Search", "Lightish", and "Sun Percussion Six". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover is lightly stained on the bottom half, with light waviness and a delaminated spot on the opening.)

Marathons & FriendsTalkin Trash ... CD
Acrobat (UK), Early 60s. Used ... $5.99
A great selection of rollicking, oddball early 60s r&b from The Marathons – plus great tunes from other west coast groups from the earliest years of the decade – The Robins, The Olympics The Danlers, The Lions, The Boulevards and The Lexingtons! The Marathons are best known for the novelty hit "Peanut Butter" and the other tracks hard don't skimp on the wackiness – and the doo wop based vocals, snapping arrangements and exuberant charm is a blast! The lyricism isn't as out there with the other groups, and the others bring a ballad here and there, too! 26 tracks in all: "Peanut Butter", "Talkin' Trash", "Tight Sweater", "C Percy Mercy Of Scotland Yard", "Chicken Spaceman", "You Bug Me Baby" "Gee" and more by the Marathons, "Just Like That", "Live Wire Susie" and more by The Robins, "Big Chief Little Puss", Ain't No Big Thing" and more by The Olympics, "I'm Looking Around" and "Foolish" by The Danleers, "No One (No One But You)" by The Lions, "Chop Chop Hole In The Wall" by The Boulevards, "I Found My Way" by The Lexingtons and more.

Frank StrozierLong Night ... LP
Jazzland, 1961. Very Good- ... $24.99
An incredible album, and one of Strozier's best! The record is an excellent example of the maturity and modernism that was coming out of the Chicago jazz scene as it hit the early 60s – and it features Strozier's soulful alto in the company of some of the city's best players, like pianist Chris Anderson, drummer Walter Perkins, bassist Bill Lee, and baritonist Pat Patrick, playing here away from Sun Ra's group! The title track alone is an incredibly fantastic composition, full of moodiness and incredible reed work – but the rest of the record's great, too, and features excellent originals like "The Need For Love", "The Crystal Ball", and "Pacemaker". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a split spine & a partially split bottom seam.)

VariousCraig Charles Funk & Soul Club 4 ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $12.99
UK DJ Craig Charles is looking a bit more disco than usual on the cover here – and maybe sounding a bit more on the music, as well – although the set's still pretty darn funky overall, and definitely lives up to the solid soul of other great volumes in this series! Through his work at the BBC, Charles has become one of the key supporters of the funky underground around the globe – and he's got a great ear for picking the best tracks from contemporary groups, and mixing them with key tracks from way back – which he does wonderfully on this set! The package features 19 tracks in all – some we might have missed otherwise, and all of which really sound great together in this array. Titles include "Hey Mister" by The Fantastics, "Reach Out" by Flevans, "You Could've Been A Lady" by Smoove & Turrell, "Beef Frinder" by Lexoul Dancemachine, "White Lines" by The Traffic, "The Rain" by Lisa Stansfield, "Black Cat" by Brian Auger & The Trinity, "Take You Home" by Lack Of Afro with Joss Stone, "Young People" by Fulton Street, "Next Time" by The Tibbs, "Talking About My Baby" by John Heartsman & Circles, "Bang Bang Boogaloo" by Joe Tatton Trio, "Taj Mahal" by Sunlightsquare with Josue Ferreira, "Futebol De Bar" by The Manuel Azevedo Quartet, and "I Can't Get Satisfied" by Telmo Fernandez Trio.

VariousHeart of Southern Soul Vol 3 – The Flame Burns On ... CD
Excello/Ace (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
An extremely hip batch of southern soul from the start of the 70s – tracks that show the real growth in the genre as the decade approached – a move into deeper, more sophisticated forms that really helped break past the hit cliches of the 60s! All of the work here is from the Excello family of labels – including Mankind and A-Bet Records – all imprints dedicated to unearthing and exposing some of the deeper talents on the southern soul scene at the time – with fresh production styles that really gave the singers a chance to open up on the tunes. Most numbers are in a mellow or midtempo mode – presented with a nice degree of polish in the instrumentation, but never in a smooth or slick way. The package features great notes on these musical treasures – and the CD features a total of 22 tracks that include "I'm Going To Win Her Love" by Bobby Powell, "Bad Water" by Doris Duke, "Daddy's Home" by 5 Degrees Fahrenheit, "Tears (I Shed For You)" by Big T & The Pacemakers, "The Next Man" by Jean Stanback, "Got To Travel On" by Brooks O'Dell, "For The Good Times" by The Seventh Wonder, "Ten Carat Fool" by Jimmy Jules, "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye" by Rose Davis, "Sun Comes Up" by Freddie North, "I'm Going To Try You One More Time" by Bobby Powell, "This Is My Chance" by Art Gentry, and "Lovin' On Back Streets" by Freddie North.

✨✧ Angles 9Disappeared Behind The Sun ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really fantastic set from this Swedish nine piece ensemble – a record that's overflowing with brash performance and unbridled energy – adventurous, but never totally free – and always given the right sort of focus to make things come across with a tremendous amount of power! The feel is almost like a Moserobie Records take on a Charles Mingus style – and the lineup features Martin Kuchen on alto and tenor – who also composed the album's five long tracks – plus Magnus Broo on trumpet, Matthias Stahl on vibes, Goran Kajfes on cornet, Mats Aleklint on trombone, Eirik Hegdal on baritone, Alexander Zethson on piano, Johan Berthling on bass, and Andreas Werliin on drums. If you know any of those players at all, you can imagine the greatness of the group – on titles that include "Adror", "Equality & Death", "Pacemaker", "Disappeared Behind The Sun", and "Love Flee Thy House".

✨✧ Walter JacksonOkeh Recordings Vol 2 – Welcome Home (with previously unreleased tracks) ... CD
Okeh/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tremendous second step for Chicago soul legend Walter Jackson – packaged here with a huge amount of bonus tracks as well! The core album is a sublime mix of new tunes and re-imagined standards – and a set that takes Walter Jackson into even more sophisticated soul territory than before! The record is proof that the up and coming soul artists of the 60s had a key place alongside the more established mainstream acts on the other side of the fence – as Walter's working here with arranger Riley Hampton to re-cast a number of familiar tunes in his cool Iceman soul mode – changing the themes, rhythms, and inflections of the tracks for a more contemporary soul market – and also interspersing them with a few great new songs of his own! The approach is amazing – far better than even Jerry Butler or Chuck Jackson's work in a similar idiom – and the album features the sublime hit "Welcome Home", plus the Van McCoy tunes "Suddenly I'm All Alone", "Still At The Mercy Of Your Love", and "The Magic's Gone" – alongside versions of "Moon River", "Let It Be Me", "Imagination", and "My Funny Valentine". Added to the original album are 7 more rare tracks pulled from singles – some of the true gems in Jackson's 60s career for Okeh – with titles that include "Deep In The Heart Of Harlem", "Cold Cold Winter", "That's When I Come To You", "Special Love", "One Heart Lonely", "I Think It's Going To Rain Today", and "The Folks Who Live On The Hill".
