✨✧ CanDelay 1968 (180 gram vinyl with bonus download) ... LP
Mute, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 20.98
Heady, hypnotic, ominous, and hard-grooving early Can – a lost set that was recorded in the late 60s, but not actually released until the early 80s – and some of the earliest, brawniest Can jams from the Malcolm Mooney years! The record may not have the name-checking power as the other early Can albums, but it's still completely revelatory – and virtually the blueprint for the prog rock generation to come! Rhythms are driving and hypnotic (thanks, Jaki Liebezeit!) – and titles include "Butterfly", "PNOOM", "Nineteen Century Man", "Thief", "Man Named Joe", "Uphill" and "Little Star Of Bethlehem".

✨✧ CanEge Bamyasi (with bonus download) ... LP
Spoon/Mute (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 20.98
One of the most essential Can albums, and perhaps their best – have drums ever sounded better on a record? Ege Bamyasi features some of Jaki Liebezeit's greatest beats, from the shorter songs like the amazing "Vitamin C", "I'm So Green", and "Spoon", to the longer, stretched out tunes in the tradition of the group's previous masterpiece, Tago Mago – "Pinch", "Soup", and "One More Night". With the classic second lineup, featuring Damo Suzuki on vocals, spouting off in several languages during the course of single song, but with a few instrumental numbers too. Elastic grooves with a driving pulse! LP, Vinyl record album

CanFlow Motion (with bonus download) ... LP
Virgin/Mute, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 20.98
Can's tuneful, yet oddly offbeat Flow Motion album – their most melodically straightforward batch of songs to this point, which throws fans for loop to this day – and we love it for that! Can was so fearlessly creative, so brilliant in their boundary-busting, genre-confounding way, that it seems like the "weirdest" thing they could do would be to make a record that sounds a little bit like music other people could make. So here comes Can with some reggae-inspired rhythms and accessible songcraft – but it's still Can, with some longer, stranger instrumental passages and all around other-ness. Includes "I Want More", "Cascade Waltz", "Laugh Till You Cry, Live Till You Die", "And More", "Babylonian Pearl", "Smoke (EFS No 59)" and "Flow Motion". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ CanMonster Movie (with bonus download) ... LP
Spoon/Mute, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 20.98
The massive debut from Can – one of our favorite art rock albums ever – and a record we can hardly believe was recorded in the late 60s given that it's a couple decades ahead of the pack! Monster Movie indeed roars – but does so with an unselfconscious feel that are the hallmark of the Can sound! This is the original line up with vocalist Malcolm Mooney, bassist Holger Czukay, guitarist Michael Karoli, organist Irmin Schmidt, and drummer Jacki Liebezeit – doing their inimitable, revolutionary thing over 4 long tracks. A cathartic, synapse firing masterpiece – and cheaper than hypnosis! Tracks include "Father Cannot Yell", "Mary, Mary, So Contrary", "Outside My Door", and the incredible side long "You Doo Right".

CanOut Of Reach (180 gram pressing with bonus download) ... LP
Mute, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 20.98
The rhythms really take off in this late 70s burner from Can – a record that re-focuses their energy a bit from before, but with a blend of elements that's still more amazing than most of their contemporaries! The record intertwines heavy drums from Jaki Liebezeit with percussion from Reebop Kwaku Baah and basslines from Rosko Gee – all with this strong focus on the rhythms that's sometimes skittish, sometimes straightforward, but always progressively stepping ahead into the next musical moments – which often include loads of keyboard lines from Irmin Schmidt and fuzzy guitar work from Michael Karoli! Vocals stand out on a few tracks, but others are more instrumentally focused – and titles include "Serpentine", "Give Me No Roses", "Like Inobe God", "November", "Pauper's Daughter & I", and "One More Day".

CanRite Time (180 gram vinyl with bonus download) ... LP
Mute, 1989. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 20.98
The last studio album from the legendary Can – recorded at the end of the 80s, and a set that features original vocalist Malcolm Mooney! Mooney's got an undercurrent of funk that really brings a different sound to the groove – almost a sharper edge than some of the smoother currents of the vocals on the few previous records – a mode that seems echoed by the guitar of Michael Karoli and some of the more skittish drum passages from Jaki Liebezeit! Tunes are mostly shortish, but also seem to be these focused answers to the generations that had copped Can's elements and made them their own – especially the British and German indie scenes of the mid/late 80s, who seem to get their come-uppance here by the originals. Titles include "The Withoutlaw Man", "Like A New Child", "Hoolah Hoolah", and "In The Distance Lies The Future". LP, Vinyl record album

Mute, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 20.98
Weird and wonderful work from Can – still standing out way ahead of the pack, even in the late 70s! The album's a great bridge between generations – and an inspiration for some, as well – not as heavy as the early years, but still filled with fuzz and spacey sounds, refined with more focus here – and almost set out as a precursor to the huge German new wave to come – especially the electronics of the AtaTak scene. Titles include the 15 minute "Animal Waves" – plus "Fly By Night", "Call Me", and "Don't Say No". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tyrone DavisCan I Change My Mind ... LP
Dakar, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The debut album from Tyrone Davis – a supreme achievement for the Chicago soul scene of the late 60s, and a record with a sound that would set the standard for years to come! Tyrone had been bumping around as a blusier singer before this set – but here, working with arrangements by Don Myrick and Willie Henderson, he gets a sound that's sweet and soaring – taking a rough-spirited soul, and recasting it in a sweeter sound for the 70s. Tyrone's not lapsing into bluesy cliches here, and instead keeps things wonderfully soulful by hitting a loping groove that picks up his beat and gives the songs a nice lilt. You can hear this to best effect on the title track "Can I Change My Mind", but all tracks are great – including "She's Looking Good", "Call On Me", "Open The Door To Your Heart", and "Have You Ever Wondered Why?".

✨✧ Electric Wire HustleLove Can Prevail ... LP
Okayplayer, 2014. New Copy 2 LPs ... $19.99
A solid second album from New Zealand electro soul combo Electric Wire Hustle – and a subtle, but still pretty progressive step away from the more sample-flavored, beat-driven debut! Love Can Prevail has just a bit more of an abstract, electronics-accented approach to the production – but the soulful approach to the vocals and overall feel of the songs cuts as deep as ever here. Strong work from a unique group! Includes "If These Are The Last Days", "Loveless", "By & Bye", "Bottom Line", "The Spirit", "Look In The Sky", "Light Goes A Long Way", "To See You Again", "Blackwater" and "Numbers And Steel".

✨✧ Curtis Knight & The Squires feat Jimi HendrixYou Can't Use My Name – The RSVP/PPX Sessions (with bonus download) ... LP
Legacy/Experience Hendrix, Mid 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99 19.98
A brilliant presentation of this standout material from the early years of Jimi Hendrix – work done with the group of soul singer Curtis Knight – often issued in poor formats over the years, and finally brought out in all of its stunning glory! The recordings feature a young Hendrix on guitar – really wailing alongside Knight's combo The Squires – so much so that Jimi's often way out in the lead, with this raw, fuzzy power that really hints at his greatness to come – but which already has plenty of punch in this hard-hitting soul setting! Knight's a great singer too – kind of raw and raspy – and his use of Jimi's guitar in the combo often recalls some of the great guitar-driven work of Ike Turner during the early 60s. This stunning package remasters all the material, presents it with notes, and finally sheds real light on this stretch of Jimi's career that's always come out in shadier versions. Titles include the never-heard "Station Break" – plus "How Would You Feel", "Gotta Have A New Dress", "Fool For You Baby", "No Such Animal", "Strange Things", and "Knock Yourself Out".

✨✧ Tim MaiaWorld Psychedelic Classics 4 – Nobody Can Live Forever – The Existential Soul Of Tim Maia ... LP
Luaka Bop, 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $22.99 23.98
Insanely great sounds from the legendary Tim Maia – easily the most soulful singer in 70s Brazil, and an artist with a heck of a strong ear for funk, too! The music here is an incredible hybrid of American soul and Brazilian elements – especially since some lyrics are in English – and the grooves are often mixed together in a sound that's nice and fuzzy around the edges, with some slight psychedelic elements that makes the cuts a perfect fit for this Luaka Bop series! Yet Tim Maia's hardly a guy who can easily fit into any easy slot or series – because as you'll hear on this set, he's got a vibe that's all his own – a really wonderful approach that's different even from some of his hippest contemporaries in Brazil – and which has gone onto have influence on countless other generations of singers and musicians – including his nephew Ed Motta. The package is great – a real visual tribute to the sounds within – and titles include "Que Beleza", "Ela Partiu", "Do Leme Ao Pontal", "Brother Father Mother Sister", "Quer Queira Quer Nao Queira", "Let's Have A Ball Tonight", "I Don't Care", "The Dance Is Over", "Rational Culture", "You Don't Know What I Know", and "Nobody Can Live Forever".

✨✧ Ann PeeblesI Can't Stand The Rain (with download) ... LP
Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1974. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Easily our favorite album ever by Ann Peebles – not just for the beathead title track, but also because it seems to be the one record where she brings a bit something extra to the studio! The sound is certainly in the classic Hi Records mode here – thanks to production by Willie Mitchell – but there's also a deeper groove overall, a stronger burning bottom, and an all-soul sound to most tracks that goes way beyond simple cliches of southern soul. Ann's vocals are tremendous throughout – sometimes sweet, sometimes mean – and titles include the sublime "I Can't Stand The Rain", plus "Run Run Run", "One Way Street", "You Keep Me Hangin On", and "If We Can't Trust Each Other".

Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99 17.99
A stone killer from OV Wright – a record that's got all the raw, deeply soulful vocals we love in his early work – mixed with some wicked 70s Hi Records production from Willie Mitchell! Imagine an Al Green record, but with rawer vocals, and you've got a good idea of the feel of this one – a perfect setting for OV's massive talent, and a great way for him to reach out to a wider audience too! The sound is impeccable – about as classic as you can get for Hi – and titles include a number of great Willie Mitchell originals – including "I Feel Love Growin", "The Time We Have", and "You Gotta Have Love". The set also includes a nice version of "Trying To Live My Life Without You", too! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousToo Slow To Disco – Late 70s Westcoast Yachtpop You Can Almost Dance To (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
How Do You Are (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99
Don't think "disco", think "AOR" – as the tunes here are all sweet smooth tracks from the glory days of late 70s radio – done in a great style that mixes blue-eyed soul with lots of warm jazzy touches! A few of the names here are big ones, but lots are lesser-known talents that labored in the farther reaches of the major label scene – artists who got lots of great studio support and access to key instrumental talent – which helped them craft laidback gems that have plenty of polish, but are still way fresher than the hits from the time! The production is superb throughout, and the instrumentation is impeccable – and titles include "Steal Away" by Photoglo, "Get It Up For Love" by Ned Doheny, "Let's Put Our Love Back Together" by Micky Denne & Ken Gold, "Deco Lady" by Rupert Holmes, "Over & Done With" by White Horse, "Liverpool Fool" by Browning Bryant, "Steal Away" by Robbie Dupree, "Spaceship Earth" by David Batteau, "Shut The Door" by Don Brown, and "Room To Grow" by Brian Elliot.

✨✧ James BrownI Can't Stand Myself When You Touch Me ... LP
King, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great lost album from James Brown – and totally funky! The record's got a super-hip cover that shows James standing in a blue room with three fine foxy ladies, and the words "I Can't Stand Myself When You Touch Me" are emblazoned across the top – and the whole thing's as super funky as it looks! The record features many obscure King singles from the mid and late 60s, great little tunes that we always enjoy on funky 45s, and which are sewn together into one of the rawer James Brown LPs from the decade. James and the band are playing Vox instruments – as you can tell by the shameless ad on the back cover – and the record has a garagey funk sound that reminds us of the best Desco work by artists like Lee Fields & Joseph Henry. A prize in any funk collection – and with the cuts "The Soul Of JB", "I Can't Stand Myself When You Touch Me (parts 1 & 2)", "Get It Together (parts 1 & 2)", "Funky Soul #1", "Why Did You Take Your Love From Me", and "Baby Baby Baby Baby". Also features the funky hit "There Was A Time" – always a treat! LP, Vinyl record album

The historic album by Can – capping off their classic early 70s trilogy that includes Tago Mago and Ege Bamyasi – and the last one with Damo Suzuki in the line up! While very similar to Ege Bamyasi, Future Days takes a step away from their more experimental sounds and has more of the long rhythmic grooves. It's a little slicker than their earlier material but it's just as intense in it's own way! The songs are "Future Days", "Spray", "Moonshake", and the 20 minute long "Bel Air". LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Possibly the best-ever collection of blacksploitation grooves we've ever seen – a really comprehensive package that not only manages to cover the classics, but which also digs deep enough to come up with lots of fresh bits too! The set really sets a new level for the Soul Jazz label – and is carried off with enough authority towards Black Action films as the label's legendary efforts towards a host of less mainstream genres – truly an achievement for the label's crew, not to mention a heavier bonus for our funky listening pleasure! There's way more here than just a slapped-together batch of tunes from the early 70s – as the set's very carefully put together to showcase a wide range of sounds, along with notes that really get at the social and political power of both the music and the films. Vinyl volume 2 features an insert with notes, and tracks that include "Theme From Cleopatra Jones" by Joe Simon, "Pursuit Of The Pimpmobile" by Isaac Hayes, "Sweetback's Theme" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Aragon" by Roy Ayers, "Strung Out" by Gordon Staples, "Easin In" by Edwin Starr, "The Bus" by Solomon Burke & Gene Page, "Make A Resolution" by The Impressions, "Ed & Digger" by Cotton Comes To Harlem, "Las Vegas Strut" by Jack Ashford, "Lay It On Your Head" by Don Julian, and "Zombie March" by Nat Dove & The Devils.

United Artists/Mute, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An early classic from Can – the first recordings with Damo Suzuki, and kind of the start of Can's more hypnotic sounds! Soundtracks found the group working for, you guessed it, film projects, but it's still pretty much a Can album rather than passages of more ambient score type music. Hypnotically repetitive rhythms and always excellent Can drums & percussion, with vocals by Damo, and the last couple of Can tracks with Malcolm Mooney. Titles include the epic "Mother Sky", "Deadlock", "Tango Whiskeyman", "Don't Turn The Lights On, Leave Me Alone", "Soul Desert" and "She Brings The Rain". LP, Vinyl record album

Virgin/Mute, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Sweet late 70s work from Can – working here at a level that's a cool compression of the group's earlier ideals, but with a style that's very true to their roots! Drums are still by Jaki Liebezeit, who has this great way of being loose and stiff at the same time – a bit of a flow that seems to reflect changes in jazzy funk during the 70s, but still with more of that forward-moving energy of Krautrock – which is furthered by the long keyboard lines spun out by Irmin Schmidt! Some of the guitar parts get a bit more focused on stronger lead elements, but never in a way that's overindulgent – and likewise, the vocals can stand out at points, but never dominate the overall mix of music. The group handle production this time by themselves – and titles include "All Gates Open", "Safe", "Sunday Jam", "Sodom", "A Spectacle", "EFS Nr 99", and "Can Be". LP, Vinyl record album

Mute, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A mid 70s killer from Can – sometimes overlooked next to the early classics, but a record that's filled with equally great charms! Things are still pretty noisy here, and plenty proggy too – thanks to driving drums from Jaki Liebezeit and hypnotic basslines from Holger Czukay and there's a surprising amount of noise in the guitars of Michael Karoli, produced here with a bit more clarity than smaller label records from the German scene – but still never any crisp or commercial qualities either. Irmin Schmidt's keyboards and electronic touches are as wonderful as always – and Czukay's production really helps keep the whole thing on edge throughout! Titles include the long "Unfinished" jam – plus "Full Moon On The Highway", "Half Past One", "Vernal Equinox", and "Hunters & Collectors". LP, Vinyl record album

Mats Aleklint QuartetMats Aleklint Quartet ... LP
Moserobie (Sweden), 2013. New Copy ... $18.99
A beautifully bold session from trombonist Mats Aleklint – a player we don't know well at all, but who really steps out on this set as a leader for Moserobie Records! The sound is a bit looser than most of the recent work on the label – not entirely free, but nicely without any strong structures – so that Mats can stretch out on these amazing lines on both slide and valve trombone, with a sense of voice and vision on the instrument that we haven't heard since Roswell Rudd! The rest of the lineup is great too – a quartet with mighty nice tenor and bass clarinet from Per Texas Johansson, bass from Joe Williamson, and drums and synth from Christopher Cantillo. Aleklint also plays a bit of thumb piano and pump organ too – and titles include "Nattbuss", "Hur Eller Dur", "Braxen", "Algskog", "Landet Runt", and "Snabbt In Snabb Tut". LP, Vinyl record album

AlpayYekte ... LP
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy ... $18.99
Unusual sounds from Alpay – an artist who perfectly shows the unique east/west crossroads that ran through the Turkish scene of the 70s! At one level, Alpay's as Western as you might guess from his look on the cover – and attempts here to serve up rockish tracks aimed at the mainstream – but his music is also heavy on plenty of older Eastern elements too – unusual inflections on the vocals, exotic instrumentation alongside electronic, and a really compelling style that sounds both ancient and futuristic at the same time! There's a budding spiritualism that seems to seep out around the corners of more conventional song structures – and the blend definitely echoes some of the best modes of the Turkish scene of the same time. The package features a very well-selected batch of Alpay recordings from the early 70s, complete with notes – and titles include "Bak Kalbim", "Akca Kizlar", "Can Karagozlum", "Ask Boyledir", "Suna", and "Denizciler".

AtomicThere's A Hole In The Mountain ... LP
Jazzland (Norway), 2013. New Copy ... $16.99
Maybe the most brilliant work so far from Atomic – and definite proof that this Swedish ensemble just keeps getting better and better with each new recording! Every player in the quintet is a star in his own right – Fredrik Ljungkvist on tenor and baritone sax, Magnus Broo on trumpet, Havard Wilk on piano, Ingebrigt Haker Flaten on bass, and Paal Nilssen-Love on drums – but what's really amazing is the way they come together as one for the record – wrapping their strong identities together, and forging out with this focused sound that has a lot more power than ever before! All the musicians know the open space of freedom, but have found a territory that can hold them all – where they can respectfully create this wonderful new sound together – in a mix of modern jazz and avant expression that seems to echo some of the best recent work from Chicago. Titles include "There's A Hole In The Mountain", "Civilon", "Wolf Cage", "Accidentals", "Labyrinths", and "Available Exits". LP, Vinyl record album

Polydor, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
What can we say? This is one of the greatest soul soundtracks ever! In a market that was dominated by the big-selling Shaft and Superfly albums, Roy slipped in this masterful blend of jazzy vibes and wah wah funk that's easily one of the best-composed records of the blacksploitation genre! The album's much more unified than your average funky soundtrack – and each track moves between styles that you'd hear on any of Roy's great albums from the time. There's heavy funk on the track "Brawling Broads", cool vibes and electric piano on "Aragon", off-beat jazz on "Coffy Sauna", and great soul on cuts like "Coffy Is The Color" and "Coffy Baby". Wonderful all the way through – and another jewel in the already-big crown of the great Roy Ayers! LP, Vinyl record album

The drums crackle with a quality schooled in 70s breaks and beats, stripped down to their core – and the mix of keyboards echo a range of innovators from CTI to Money Mark, with a spacious flow that leaves plenty of room for the basslines to drive the tunes! Other instrumentation includes bits of guitar and percussion from the group, plus some guest tenor and strings as well.

Timeless work by Georgia bluesman Cecil Barfield – material recorded in the mid 70s, issued in the 21st Century – but done with a quality that could go back to the 78rpm generation! Barfield has this amazing vocal style – strongly inflected at times, with this warble that makes for a strong musical element next to his acoustic guitar – almost Malian at times, and very different than any other blues singer we can think of. The recording quality is excellent – clear, clean, and very unadorned – and titles include "Love Blues", "Tell Me Rider", "Captain Had A Bulldog", "Big Legged Woman", "Five Long Years", "Root Blues", and "Talk To Your Daughter".

An understated masterpiece from The Beach Boys – a record that's probably best known for its inclusion of some key tracks from the Smile sessions – but an album that stands pretty darn nicely on its own! The group are really maturing here – and the mix of Smile-era songs and some of their later ones is really great – a wonderful follow-up to material explored on Friends, and a great hint at the genius to come on Sunflower. The album's essential listening if you dig post-Pet Sounds Beach Boys – especially before they hit their mix of nostalgia and indulgence in the 70s – and titles include the sublime "Cabinessence", plus "Do It Again", "I Can Hear Music", "Be With Me", "All I Want To Do", "I Want To Sleep", and "The Nearest Faraway Place".

Reprise/Rhino, Early 70s. New Copy 4LP ... $89.99 99.98
The Reprise Records run of Captain Beefheart – presented here in a special package that also features a full album of never-issued rare material as well! Beefheart at Reprise was a real high point – as the Captain was still full of all the primal, gritty elements of the previous years – but also refining the sound of the Magic Band as well – to a point where the increased musicianship only got more complex, yet helped focus the energy of the songs as well! The whole thing's worth it alone for the mindblowing combination of roots and modern on the guitar work – and the progression over three albums is one of the most striking you'll see at the time for any artist, in any style. The package features the full three albums Lick My Decals Off Baby, The Spotlight Kid, and Clear Spot – and the bonus Outtakes CD features titles that include "Little Scratch", "Kiss Where I Kain't", "The Witch Doctor Life (inst take)", "Harry Irene", "Alice In Blunderland (alt)", "Two Rips In A Haystack/Kiss Me My Love", "Nowadays A Woman's Gotta Hit A Man (early mix)", "Dirty Blue Gene (alt 1)", "Pompadour Swamp/Suction Prints", and "I Can't Do This Unless I Can Do This/Seam Crooked Sam".

Beginning Of The EndFunky Nassau ... LP
Alston, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A monster bit of funk that's unlike anything else we can think of! Beginning Of The End hailed from The Bahamas, but don't hold that against them – because instead of being a Caribbean cliche, they took the best part of the island rhythms, and used them to forge an incredible approach to funk! They've got a choppy sound that's the result of some incredibly dexterous guitar, bass, and drums – and which you'll recognize instantly from their one-time hit "Funky Nassau", a killer funk track that never gets old, no matter how many bands cover it over the years! That gem kicks off the album, which then rolls into the monster funky "part 2", which is even better! Other titles are equally wonderful – and include "Come Down", "Surrey Ride", "Monkey Tamarind", and "In The Deep". Essential – and one that you'll be spinning for years! LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1999. New Copy 2LP ... $22.99 24.99
Drummer Brian Blade can be a hell of a percussive force when he wants to, but over the years he's maybe made even more of a contribution with records like this – sets that have him acting as a key creative force with a number of other great musicians – all at a richly collaborative level that definitely earns the "Fellowship" name of the group! The album's got an especially great way of mixing together guitar lines and reed passages – in a style that almost evokes older ECM, but with more direction too – thanks to some of Blade's subtle but effectively rootsy rhythms. Musicians include Melvin Butler on tenor and soprano sax, Jon Cowherd on Fender Rhodes and piano, Dave Easley on pedal steel, Kurt Rosenwinkel on electric and acoustic guitar, and Myron Walden on alto sax and bass clarinet – and the record also features guest vocals from Joni Mitchell on the track "Steadfast", and contributions from Daniel Lanois as well. Titles include "Trembling", "Crooked Creek", "Patron Saint Of Girls", and "Evinrude Fifty". LP, Vinyl record album

Blues MagoosElectric Comic Book ... LP
Mercury/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
The second bright blast of garage psyche grooves from Blues Magoos – their excellent Electric Comic Book set for Mercury – just as great as the first album! At this early point, the group brings a deliriously high energy approach, even in the studio – we can only imagine how incredible the live show must have been – but still with catchy harmonies and a wicked sense of humor. The organ and heavy drums is the bedrock for garage rock to come, too! Titles include "Pipe Dream", "There's A Chance We Can Make It", "Gloria", "Summer Is The man", "Baby I Want You", "Take My Love", "Rush Hour" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownGet On Up – The James Brown Story ... LP
Polydor/Universal, Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $27.99 34.98
A set put together as the soundtrack for the James Brown bio-pic – but one that features mostly original recordings by The Godfather himself, and a few older cuts altered a bit for the film! The groove runs from early 60s soul to early 70s funk – and there's a fair bit of live tracks, which go well to display James at his vibrant concert best. About a quarter of the material seems to be vintage recordings, augmented with some new performances or vocals to fit the scenes in the film – but these fit well alongside the classics, to a point where there's hardly much discernable difference (as well as little in the notes to explain them as well.) Tracks include "Sex Machine", "Mother Popcorn (part 1)", "It's A Man's Man's Man's World (live)", "I Got The Feelin (live)", "Soul Power (live)", "Try Me (live)", "Please Please Please", "Get Up Offa That Thing", "I Can't Stand Myself (live)", and "I Got You".

James BrownSho Is Funky Down Here ... LP
Polydor, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the wilder James Brown instrumental LPs from the late King period. The James Brown Band is fronted by a heavy fuzzy guitar sound, which gives the LP a sort of rock-break feel, with nice fuzzy electric tones. All tracks are by James and Dave Matthews, and the record is sort of a second album by Matthews' Grodeck Whipperjenny group. Titles include "Can Mind", "Don't Mind", "Bob Scoward", and "Just Enough Room for Storage". Wild, and tough to find these days, too! LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownSlaughter's Big Rip-Off ... LP
Polydor, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $9.99
Easily one of the funkiest albums that James Brown ever recorded – and one of his few entries into the blacksploitation genre of the 70s! James really outdid himself for this one – working at a hard burning pace that had the JBs cooking up some killer funk for just about every number in the set – and which also has James himself stepping out vocally for a few key tracks. The album features the massive groover "People Get Up and Drive Your Funky Soul" – a slamming track that beats nearly every number in the JB 70s catalog – plus other cuts that include "To My Brother", "Brother Rapp", "Sexy Sexy Sexy", "Slaughter Theme", "Transmogrification", "King Slaughter", and "How Long Can I Keep It Up".

John Rabbit Bundrick & Johnny Nash/Bob MarleyVill Sa Garna Tro (Want So Much To Believe) – Vol 2 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mellotronen (Sweden), 1971. New Copy ... $9.99
Amazing sounds from a rare Swedish film – noteworthy not just for the end result, but for the lineup of people who were part of the process! The movie itself starred rising soul star Johnny Nash – in the lead in a tale about interracial romance – and although Johnny sings on the score, his style is also quite different than his own music of the time – as his voice is set to really cool, complicated backdrops from John "Rabbit" Bundrick – who was part of a floating scene that included Nash and Bob Marley, with a better-known later stop in London. The film and music came together out of an almost communal vibe – with Bundrick's music at the core, plus some lyrics from Nash, and instrumentation from a lineup that includes Bob Marley on guitar, alongside local talents Janne Schaffer and Bjorn Linder – plus percussion from the great Reebop Kwaku Bah, who'd worked with Can and Traffic – as well as lots of Fender Rhodes and organ from Bundrick. Some tunes have a loose, percussive feel – others are more song structured with a lot of guitar – and the whole package comes with a great set of notes to tell the tale of the music and the movie. Titles on this second volume include "Mine All Mine", "Fire Sequence", "Live In The Country (inst)", "Song In Ferry Boat Sequence", "Church Tune", "Love Scene", and "Harp II". LP, Vinyl record album

Jerry Butler/Jerry PetersMelinda – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Pride, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of Jerry Butler's funkiest moments of the 70s – served up in a fantastic soundtrack co-penned and arranged by the great Jerry Peters! Peters is best known for his hip work with a variety of soul acts in the studio, but he really steps out here for the score to Melinda – a lesser-known blacksploitation film from the early 70s, but one that boasts a heck of a great soundtrack! Peters approach here is a bit more baroque than some of his contemporaries – and he uses stepping strings equally alongside funky rhythms – creating a groove that's complicated, yet still plenty darn funky – and a sound that's as soulful on the mellower tunes as it is on the standout uptempo ones. Jerry Butler sings vocals on "Speak Truth To The People", "Tank's Theme", "Love is", and "Melinda Reprise" – but the instrumental tracks are even better, and inlcude the clavinet groover "Part III", the sitar-styled "Melinda Latino", and the cuts "Music For Tank's Boat", "The Blues (Dope Pusher's Theme)", and "I Can't Let You Go".

✨✧ Bobby ByrdI Need Help ... LP
Polydor, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Stunning! Although many know Bobby Byrd as the longtime associate of James Brown, and although his singles do turn up from time to time on compilations, this one and only album by him is super-rare. The album's a live recording (although we've never been sure if it's not one of James Brown's "fake" live projects, with studio tracks and applause added in) – and it contains a killer batch of funky tracks like "I Need Help (I Can't Do It Alone)" (parts 1 & 2), "Funky Soul", "My Concerto", "You Got To Have A Job (If You Don't Work, You Can't Eat)", and "Hang Ups We Don't Need (The Hungry We've Got To Feed)". Loads of breakbeats, and a killer funky groove with Bobby singing in a style that's as great as James Brown's best funky stuff from the time, but with a darker edge to it. Classic stuff, and an unbelievable one to have on low-priced reissue! LP, Vinyl record album

Don CherryMu Second Part ... LP
BYG/Actuel, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Don Cherry really breaks out here on his classic Mu sessions from France – using the new freedoms of post-68 Paris to explore themes at a level that would set the tone for generations to come! The album's very spare, and very improvised – with Cherry on pocket trumpet, piano, and wooden flute – plus a bit of percussion too – alongside drummer Ed Blackwell, who's equally unbridled – showing a huge evolution since the time both he and Don spent in the group of Ornette Coleman! There's a few echoes of the global elements that Cherry would later embrace more strongly in the 70s – but the core energy here is mostly improvised jazz, handled at a level that really makes a lot better use of the freedom than some of Don's contemporaries. Titles on this second part include "Bamboo Night", "The Mysticism Of My Sound", "Psycho Drama", "Smiling Faces Going Places", "Teo Teo Can", and "Dollar Brand/Spontaneous Composing/Exert Man On The Moon". LP, Vinyl record album
