✨✧ Bonzo Dog BandTadpoles ... LP
Imperial, 1969. Very Good ... $14.99
One of the most all-out comedic efforts from The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band – a set that strongly shows their frequent association with the Monty Python crowd – and which comes off with a very similar sense of humor! The post-modern pastiche is in full effect here – as snippets of influences from all over the 20th century come into play in the set – acoustic swing, rootsy rock, novelty pop, and 60s psychedelia – strung together with a style that's almost visual at times, and which leaps from the groove with tremendous delight in its own sense of play! Vivian Standshall's spoken bits are especially great – and titles include "Shirts", "Hunting Tigers Out In Indiah", "Tubas In The Moonlight", "Monster Mash", "I'm The Urban Spaceman", "Ali Baba's Camel", "By A Waterfall", "Mr Apollo", and "Canyons Of Your Mind". LP, Vinyl record album

Jerry ButlerBest Of The Vee Jay Years ... CD
Vee Jay/Shout Factory, Early 60s. Used ... $9.99
Amazing work by one of our favorite soul singers ever – the legendary Jerry Butler, heard here in his crucial early years at Vee Jay Records! Jerry first recorded for the label as part of the young Impressions trio with Curtis Mayfield, but was pulled out to become a solo act on his own – and the result was a batch of tunes that clearly helped forge a new generation in soul music – allowing a male vocalist to skirt the line between expressive emotion and sophisticated reserve, a quality that earned Jerry the nickname of "Iceman" during these early years. It's hard to adequately sum up the power of this work in words, so we'll let Jerry's magnificent recordings do the job for us – and will only say that the set features a total of 16 tracks in all, including the titles "Find Another Girl", "He Will Break Your Heart", "Need To Belong", "Message To Martha", "Make It Easy On Yourself", "I Stand Accused", "Let It Be Me", "Good Times", "I Don't Want To Hear It Anymore", "Aware Of Love", "Moon River", "Find Another Girl", "I'm A Telling You", "You Can Run", "For Your Precious Love", and "Come Back My Love".

Philip K DickFlow My Tears The Policeman Said ... Book
Gollancz (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $4.99 12.99
A great 70s story from Philip K Dick – written right before the author got very far-out in his narratives – and very much in the mode of his best books from the 60s! The story revolves around the usual PKD workplace paranoia – a TV star is suddenly bereft of identity, and without any sense of himself in a highly-monitored police state – unsure whether to take advantage of this newfound freedom, or try to recreate himself on paper – then doubting his previous reality in the process. This summation hardly does justice to the story – which draws its real charm from Dick's compact prose, and great ear for characterization – the kind of proper speculative narrative writing that, more than anything, gets at the heart of the human condition, even in unfamiliar circumstances. 204 pages, softcover.

Lou DonaldsonNatural Soul ... LP
Blue Note, 1962. Very Good ... $38.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(New York stereo pressing. Cover has a "Funky Mama" sticker.)

✨✧ Garland GreenJealous Kind Of Fella ... LP
Uni, 1968. Good+ ... $16.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Garland GreenLove Is What We Came Here For ... LP
RCA, 1977. Very Good ... $6.99
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
(Vinyl is nice and clean – cover has some water staining and light wear, with a bit of peeling near the bottom.)

Garland GreenVery Best Of Garland Green – 24 Tracks From Chicago's Master Soul Singer's Illustrious Career ... CD
Kent (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $14.99
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".

Moacir SantosMaestro ... LP
Blue Note, 1973. Very Good+ ... $39.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Joe SimonA Bad Case Of Love ... LP
Polydor, 1977. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A Bad Case Of Love was recorded in New York with uptown soul legend Teddy Randazzo, who wrote all the tracks on the album. Teddy's style is a great one for Joe, as it kind of recreates the "iceman" sound of the late 60s Wand/Scepter years – which is a perfect style for Simon's rich baritone, and has him coming out like Jerry Butler or Chuck Jackson on the best cuts. Titles include "Coming Down With A Bad Case Of Love", "Show Must Go On", "I've Got A Jones On You Baby", "Baby It's You For Me", and "For Your Love Love Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jerry ButlerBest Of Jerry Butler (Mercury) ... CD
Mercury, Late 60s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Seminal work by one of our favorite soul singers of all time! Jerry first came to fame with The Impressions and on his own in the early 60s – singing dark moody easy tunes that well earned him the nickname of "Iceman". In the late 60s, though, he moved onto Mercury where he broke through even bigger with some excellent early production by Gamble & Huff, which took Jerry to a whole new level, and which gave his work a swinging soul groove that worked great with his vocals. This set compiles some of the best moments of the Mercury years – including "Never Give You Up", "Lost", "Moody Woman", "Mr Dream Merchant", "Western Union Man", and "Only The Strong Survive". CD

✨✧ Erkin KorayElektronik Turkuler ... LP
Turkofon, 1974. Used Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(German pressing.)

✨✧ Teruo NakamuraNew York Groove ... CD
Ratspack (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A definite New York groove from bassist Teuro Nakamura – and a set that really takes us back to some of the best American/Japanese fusion sessions of the late 70s! Like some of those classics, this one was recorded in the US, with a Japanese player in the lead – bassist Nakamura – and the sound is wonderfully smooth and soulful, with a wickedly spacious take on jazz funk – and this open groove set up by the basslines, which then allow plenty of room for the other musicians to take flight! The album features guitar from Joe Berger, Bill Washer, and William Spaceman Patterson – plus loads of sweet keyboards and Fender Rhodes from Ron Thompson, whose work on the record is almost worth the price of admission! The set also features a bit of soprano sax from Antoine Roney, and some tenor from Jay Rodriguez – and titles include "Bushman Song", "Sequoia Forest", "Sweet Romance", "Midnight Song", and "Certain Doubt".

✨✧ VariousFunk Spectrum Vol 2 – Real Funk For Real People (Compiled By Kenny Dope (MAW) & Keb Darge) ... LP
BBE (UK), 2000. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer! Take the funky genius of Kenny Dope and Keb Darge, set them loose on a pile of rare funky 45s, and you've got one of the best sets of music we've ever carried! Both guys really know their stuff – and they've done an excellent job with this set, which is easily as great as any of the Keb Darge ones, if not better! Hard drums, rumbling bass, blaring horns, choppy guitars, and screaming vocals abound – and the set's a great blend of instrumental and vocal funk, all with that deep deep deep sound that never gets old! Titles include "Get It Off The Ground" by Joe Coleman, "I Got Some" by Billy Gardner, "UFO" by Micky & Them, "Contradiction" by Total Experience, "Soul Food" by Frankie Seay & The Soul Riders, "I Turn You On" by Latin Breed, "Don't Push Your Luck" by The Peacemakers, "Grandma's Funky Popcorn" by The Soul Generals, "Ghost A Go Go" by Richard Rome, and "Cissy Strut N American Woman" by The Willard Posey Reunion. Great stuff – and 20 cuts in all! LP, Vinyl record album

EMI (Brazil), 1960s/1970s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Looking for rare bossa tunes? This is a fantastic set! The package pulls together tunes from the 60s and 70s catalogs of the Odeon, EMI, and Copacabana record labels – a brilliant companion to the Serie Bis Bossa Nova issued under the names of individual artists, and featuring work by others who weren't included on other volumes! There's a wide range of styles here – from classic bossa instrumental, to pop vocal tunes, to jazzy groovers, vocal group numbers, and even some electric 70s takes on the genre. Titles on this second volume include "Eu Quero Um Samba" by Wilson Simonal & Elza Soares, "Aqua De Beber" by Neco, "Minha Namorada" by Balanco Trio, "Ate O Sol Raiar" by Bossa Tres, "O Coelho" by Iracema Costa, "Meninho Das Laranjas" by Tempo Trio, "Sucedeu Assim" by Norma Benguell, "Vivo Sonhando" by Ipanema Pop Orchestra, "Januaria" by O Grupo, "Cancao Que Morre No Ar" by Rosana Toledo, "Camba De Uma Nota So" by Coral De Ouro Preto, "Chove Chuva" by Luiz Loy, "Samba Da Bencao" by Armando's Trio, and "Licao De Bossa Nova" by Nadia Maria.
