Los Charly's OrchestraRediscovering The Big Apple ... CD
Imagenes (UK), 2013. New Copy ... $9.99
Los Charly's Orchestra rediscover the Big Apple – although given the group's strong approach to Latin music, it's hard to imagine that they'd ever forget the sound of New York! Yet this time around, there's an added element of Latin Soul in the mix – some touches of late 60s and early 70s Fania and Tico, especially in the way the rhythms and vocals intertwine – the latter of which are often English, with a wonderfully soulful groove! The group's own tracks are mighty nice, and they also serve up their own versions of cuts by Johnny Colon, Bobby Matos, and Cachao – in a killer set list that includes "All I Wanna Do", "My Barrio", "Al Ritmo Del Latin Funk", "Merecumbe", "Rediscovering The Big Apple", "Return To Spanish Harlem", and "Descarga Cachao".

✨✧ Leroy HutsonHutson (Charly pressing) ... CD
Curtom, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing record – quite possibly the best ever by Chicago soul legend Leroy Hutson! The whole thing's a smooth soul masterpiece beyond compare – a stunning blend of great songwriting, sexy vocals, and buttery production that rank it up there with the best work of 70s giants like Marvin Gaye, Leon Ware, or Roy Ayers. Leroy's got a voice that's both warm and mellow, yet incredibly honest at the same time – and the songs on the record show a range of colors and emotions that perfectly fit his unique style. Features mellow "Cool Out", the funky "Lucky Fellow", the sweet "All Because Of You", and the sublime cuts "It's Different" and "Can't Stay Away". The whole thing's great – and is one of the crowning achievements of the Chicago soul scene! CD

✨✧ VariousCharly's Extraordinary Sensations – 20 Mod Soul Classics ... CD
Charly (UK), Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very nice feel to this one, and more of a 60's soul sound than Charly's other comps. Eddie Piller, of the Acid Jazz label, put togther 20 tracks of rare soul with a 60's "mod" sound to them. The set's got a nice mix of deep soul tracks and uptown charmers – and has none of the northern soul overindulgence that sometimes gets to be too much on thes UK comps. Tracks include "Ride Your Pony" by Betty Harris, "What's This I See" by June Conquest, "(Gonna Be) Good Times" by Gene Chandler, "Groovy" by P.P. Arnold, "I Spy (For The FBI)" by Jamo Thomas, "Lipstick Traces (On A Cigarette)" by Benny Spellman, "What Does It Take (To Win Your Love)" by The Electrifying Cashmeres, "I Hurt On The Other Side" by Sidney Barnes, and "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by Lee Dorsey.

Alvin CashWindy City Workout – The Essential Dance Craze Hits & Rarities 1964 to1973 ... CD
Mar V Lus/Charly (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $11.99 17.98
The full scope of genius from the legendary Alvin Cash – not just his 60s gritty groovers, but a host of later funk tracks as well – all packaged into a beautiful book-styled package! Cash is one of our favorite Chicago artists ever – a dancer by trade, but a flamboyant personality who always managed to make his way center stage – whether live or in the recording studio! The set begins with early "twine" numbers from Alvin – some romping heavy soul tracks that have a very deep bottom, and a raw sound that's equal part R&B and Chicago soul – definitely tuned towards the dancefloor crowd that was a natural fit for Cash's energy. As the set moves on, it then picks up some wicked late 60s singles for the Toddlin Town label, and also includes some excellent early 70s groovers for Sound Stage Seven – some of Alvin's hardest, heaviest numbers ever. The set features work by Alvin Cash with The Registers, Hundred Dollar Bills, The Crawlers, and Scott Brothers Orchestra – and titles include "Keep On Dancing (parts 1 & 2)", "Funky 69", "Moanin & Groanin", "Doin The Creep", "It's Party Time", "Funky Washing Machine", "Alvin's Doin His Thing", "Funky Street", "Doin The Ali Shuffle", "Whip It On Me", "The Charge", "Boston Monkey", "The Philly Freeze", "Alvin's Boogaloo", "Let's Do Some Good Timing", "The Bump", "Twine Time", "Twine Awhile", "The Barracuda", and "You Shot Me Through The Grease".

✨✧ Sir Joe Quarterman & Free SoulSir Joe Quarterman & Free Soul ... CD
Charly (UK), 1973. Used ... $15.99
An undisputed funk classic – even back in the days before anyone ever said the phrase "funk classic"! This album must have been deleted the day it came out – because even though it's attained legendary proportions with groovers worldwide, it's always been hard to find – even back in the 70s! But unlike so many other "rare-but-not great" funk albums, this one's a killer – with a hard funky wah wah sound that we'd rank up there with James Brown's best work on Polydor from the early 70s, and which should have made Joe a millionaire, not a lost legend of soul music. The band is sharp as a knife – with hard drums, tight bass, and some simply amazing guitar riffing. But the best part is Joe – as his vocals are hard and emotional, with just the right touches of righteousness to carry off the album's political messages, but not too much as to spoil the party that the band's having in the background! Every single track is a winner, and if we were ever to make a list of the top five funk albums to own, this one would be on it! Titles include "The Way They Do My Life", "I Got So Much Trouble On My Mind", "The Trouble With Trouble", "Give Me Back My Freedom", "Live Like Brothers", and "Find Yourself". CD

Bobby WomackEverything's Gonna Be Alright – The American Singles 1967 to 1976 ... CD
United Artists/Charly (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $13.99 14.98
A massive package of music from the mighty Bobby Womack – a book-style 2CD set that features every single from Bobby's first decade in soul music – including both a and b-sides of the 45s! Bobby first got his start with a host of important singles for Minit Records – and these kick off the set with that unique blend of southern roots and soaring grooves that made Womack a legend right from the start – and which continues to mature in a really marvelous way as the music goes on. The package features a number of tracks we'd missed before – since we mostly just have Bobby's full length LPs – and the book features track by track details, with information on the singles' releases as well. 50 tracks in all – with titles that include "Somebody Special", "Broadway Walk", "Thank You", "Tried & Convicted", "Let It Hang Out", "Check It Out", "Interlude No 2", "Trust IN Me", "Git It", "Come L'Amore", "Harry Hippie", "Fire & Rain", "The Preacher (parts 1 & 2)", "More Than I Can Stand", "Arkansas State Prison", and "Love The Time Is Now".

Charly (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $12.99 13.98
A searing set of vintage soul cuts – brought together in honor of the legendary Wigan Casino – one of the most important clubs in the UK Northern Soul scene of the 70s! For the uninitiated, Wigan was a hotbed of upbeat rare soul cuts – overlooked American goodies from both the previous decade and more recent years – often with a strong focus on deeper soul vocals, which meant some strong entries from the southern scene as well! This well-done package comes with a heavy book-style cover, notes on the club and its music – and a whopping 28 tracks in all – including "Being Without You" by Maurice Williams, "I Can't Hide It" by The Appreciations, "Come On Train" by Don Thomas, "I'm Satisfied With You" by The Furys, "You're Gonna Need Me" by Ted Ford, "You Got To Use What You Got" by Ann Sexton, "Why Should I Cry" by The Gentrys, "It's Heavy" by Bags, "Baby What Has Happened To Our Love" by The Ringleaders, "The Night The Angels Cried" by Johnny Dynamite, "I'm A Teardrop" by The Jerms, and "Your Wish Is My Command" by The Inspirations. Also comes with a rare bonus CD, too – a 1975 live performance by Tommy Hunt at Wigan – with cuts that include "Get Ready", "I Can't Turn You Loose", "Help Me Make It Through The Night", "Crackin Up", and "Never Can Say Goodbye".

Curtom/Charly (UK), 1976. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of the lesser-known Leroy Hutson LPs, but still a damn good one. There's a number of tracks that are a bit more uptempo, and aimed at the dancefloor, like "It's The Music" and "Feel The Spirit", but there's also some great cuts that are in his more standard Chicago mellow soul style, like the great "You Never Know What You Can Do (Give It A Try)" and "Lover's Holiday". More great stuff from one of the geniuses of 70's soul, with arrangements by Leroy and Richard Evans that sparkle throughout! CD

VariousHavana Cultura Mix – The Soundclash! ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
A great mix of Cuban music and diversely danceable, percussive sounds from around the globe – on this excellent entry in the Brownswood label's and producer/tastemaker Gilles Peterson's Havana Cultura series! It's amazing stuff, and about as seamless a blend of styles as can be, while still being able to describe it as Soundclash – often with Cuban vocals, percussion and rhythms, with either subtle or fairly bold electronics, depending on the track – contributed by artists from Chile, UK, Germany, Hungary, Holland, South Africa and beyond. Includes "Ellegua" by Kerkstra feat Sexto Sentido, "Para Ti" by Rukaiya Russell feat Sexto Sentido, "Yemaya" by Chillum Trio feat Coki & Reni, "Ritmo Sensorial" by Rukaiya Russell feat Los Niches & Charly Mucha Rima, "Soy Cubano" by Kerkstra feat Etian Brebaje Man & Sexto Sentido, "Volar En Lo Profundo: by DJ Monokey feat Barbaro and more.

Great work from one of the darkest groups of the girl group generation – the mighty Shangri-Las! The girls are best known for the album's title hit, but there's plenty more here to love, too – a range of really cool little tunes that all capture the same tense territory of "The Pack" – that weird world of sensual longing and teenage heartbreak – all produced by Shadow Morton with some nicely offbeat touches! Titles include "Bull Dog", "Give Him A Great Big Kiss", "It's Easier To Cry", "Leader Of The Pack", "What Is Love", "Dressed In Black", "He Cried", and "I Can Never Go Home Anymore".

✨✧ Eugen CiceroMarching The Classics/Balkan Rhapsody – Jazz Club ... CD
MPS/Universal (Germany), 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
Some of the grooviest classical piano work you'll ever hope to hear, thanks to the keyboard talents of the amazing Eugen Cicero – heard here on a two rare albums of material recorded for the MPS label! Back in the 60s, a number of European artists were experimenting with a blend of classics and jazz – but few did it as well as Cicero, who could hit the keys with the fluidity of a concert pianist, but make the whole thing swing like some of his best jazz labelmates! The set begins with Marching The Classics – which has Cicero really swinging some unlikely numbers – march numbers from Mozart, Strauss, and others – taken at quick tempos that really move wonderfully with very fluid piano lines from Eugen, and work on bass from JA Rettenbacher, and drums from Kenny Clarke. Titles include "Aida March", "Carmen March", "Boccaccio March", "Love Of The Three Oranges March", and "Radetzky March". Balkan Rhapsody features wonderful tunes sourced from Balkan folklore, but also revamped strongly by Eugen Cicero – to give them a swinging 60s piano sound overall! Great credit here goes to the members of his trio – Peter Witte on bass and the legendary Charly Antolini on drums, the latter of whom had a sense of tightness that really brought a new sense of energy to these tracks. Titles include "Der Gehort Mein Ganzes Leben", "Memories Of Clausenberg", "Suber Sang Ertront", "Dort In Der Ferne", "Ima Modenschein", and "Der Schlitten Eilt". CD

Art plays accordion – in a way that works perfectly with the banks of sound and sweetness we love from the group – an instrument whose own breathy tones turns out to be a perfect accompaniment for their harmonies, especially in the way it sets a very melancholy mood! Other instrumentation is great too – relatively spare use of the guitar of Sigi Schwab, plus vibes from Heribert Thusek, bass from Eberhard Weber, and drums from Charly Antolini – and titles include a really sublime version of Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Wave", plus "Violets For Your Furs", "Cherry", "Spring Is Here", "Ecstasy", "We Could Be Flying", and "Invitation".

✨✧ Jonny TeupenHarpadelic ... CD
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Electric harp?!?! Don't ask us – we like it! Jonny Teupen was one of the strangest and most wonderful artists to record for the MPS label during their glory days – and his big instrument was a jazz harp, which he often electrified to great result! Sure, Dorothy Ashby had been making jazz inroads on the instrument in the US at about the same time – but Teupen had a cool sound that was a bit sitar, a bit guitar, and a bit "inside the piano" at his wildest moments. This record is maybe his greatest moment ever – and mixes Jonny's harp with vibes from Dave Pike guitar from Volker Kriegel, trumpet from Shake Keane, and drums from Charly Antolini – all solid MPS players who really help ground the sound! Titles include "Blue Tattoo", "I Saw The Sun Going Down", "Love Me", " The Cornflower Girl", "Come Back & Shake Me", and "Harp Revolution". CD
