Billy PaulLet 'Em In ... CD
Philadelphia International/CEMA, 1976. Used ... $6.99
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

✨✧ St Francis Duo (Steve Noble/Stephen O'Malley)Peacemaker Assembly ... CD
Trost (Austria), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A heady brew of fuzz from guitarist Stephen O'Malley – best known for his work in Sun O))) – but recording here in a free jazz setting with drummer Steve Noble – whose percussive contributions are wonderfully scattered around the edges of O'Malley's sonic drone! The album only features two long tracks – and they both build up over a long course of balanced sonic activity – with a style that almost answers the question "what would happen if a psychedelic group ever dabbled in free jazz?" But there's also a lot more going on than that – and the record's another strong statement from the rising Noble, and a great shift in setting for O'Malley. CD

David Brent (Ricky Gervais)Life On The Road ... CD
BBC/Universal (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $18.99
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 ButlerJerry Butler Sings Assorted Sounds – With The Aid Of Assorted Friends & Relatives ... LP
Mercury, 1971. Very Good ... $6.99
One of the albums in which Jerry Butler showcases the talents of a new generation of young Chicago soul talents – including Terry Callier, Donny Hathaway, Chuck Jackson (from The Independents, not the New York soul star), and his brother Billy Butler. Billy Butler had already scored big with his own singles on Okeh in the 60s, but Terry, Donny, and Chuck were still emerging soul talents at this time – and it was pretty darn nice of Jerry to give them exposure on a record like this. Proof that The Iceman always was much more than just the simple singer of pop hits that he always gets tagged for – as it was pretty magnanimous of him to share the wealth of his big contract with Mercury, not to mention pretty smart to infuse his career with some good young songwriting talent. The whole record's got a good groovy soul sound, and includes the cuts "How Did We Lose It", "If It's Real What I Feel", "What Is It", and "Do You Finally Need a Friend". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Chuck JacksonAny Day Now ... LP
Wand, Early 60s. Good ... $6.99
Beautifully heartbreaking soul from Chuck Jackson – singing here in his early "iceman" style – clearly influenced by Jerry Butler's work on Vee Jay, but also a perfect fit for the uptown soul sound of New York! The title track – "Any Day Now" – is a late night mellow soul classic that never gets old – but the album's also filled with some great fresh numbers that make it a wonderful no-filler set all the way through! Titles include "Angel of Angels", "The Breaking Point", "Just Once", "I Keep Forgettin", and "Who's Gonna Pick Up The Pieces". LP, Vinyl record album

Chuck JacksonI Don't Want To Cry/Any Day Now ... CD
Wand/Kent (UK), 1961/1962. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The start of an amazing legacy in 60s soul – the first two Wand albums from Chuck Jackson, back to back in a single set! First up is I Don't Want To Cry – a real landmark from soul singer Chuck Jackson – part of a unique wave of male vocalists who really took the music to new heights in the 60s! Jackson's got this way of balancing heartbreaking emotion with masculine control – summed up perfectly in the album's title track, then carried forth in a set of other blue-tinged numbers that strike an equal balance! The approach is similar to the best work by Jerry Butler and Walter Jackson – with a similar blend of deep range and sophisticated ideals – and titles include "I Don't Want To Cry", "I Wake Up Crying", "A Man Ain't Supposed To Cry", "Tears On My Pillow", "I Cried For You", "Lonely Teardrops", "Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying", and "In Between Tears" – plus more songs about crying, believe it or not! Next is Any Day Now – beautifully heartbreaking soul from Chuck Jackson – singing here in his early "iceman" style – clearly influenced by Jerry Butler's work on Vee Jay, but also a perfect fit for the uptown soul sound of New York! The title track – "Any Day Now" – is a late night mellow soul classic that never gets old – but the album's also filled with some great fresh numbers that make it a wonderful no-filler set all the way through! Titles include "Angel of Angels", "The Breaking Point", "Just Once", "I Keep Forgettin", and "Who's Gonna Pick Up The Pieces". CD

Chuck JacksonOn Tour/Dedicated To The King!! ... CD
Wand/Kent (UK), 1964/1967. Used ... $6.99
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".

Walter JacksonOkeh Recordings Vol 3 – Speak Her Name (with previously unreleased tracks) ... CD
Okeh/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
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". This expanded CD makes the original album ever better – and adds in a full batch of 10 bonus tracks – some of which are unissued, others of which are rare singles from Jackson's later Okeh years, plus rare Epic sides. Bonus titles include "No Butterflies", "Ad Lib", "The Look Of Love", "The Bed", "Forget The Girl", "My Ship Is Coming In", "Road To Ruin", and "Just One Smile". CD

✨✧ Erkin KorayElektronik Turkuler ... CD
Dogon/World Psychedelia (Korea), 1974. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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". CD

LeadersUnforseen Blessings ... CD
Black Saint (Italy), 1989. Used ... $8.99
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". CD

Al PerkinsYes, My Goodness, Yes/I Stand Accused ... 7-inch
Atco, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $2.99
Al's an obscure singer – but one with an excellent voice, very much in the "iceman" tradition of Garland Green or Jerry Butler. It's no surprise that he sings Butler's classic "I Stand Accused" on this one, done in a version that's more updated and a bit nicer than the original. "Yes, My Goodness" is a great one, too – and the credits make it appear to be written by Butler and Bobby Womack! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Sun RaIt's After The End Of The World ... LP
MPS/BASF, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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)". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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 ... $11.99 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.
