Charly KingsonBorn In Africa (with bonus download) ... LP
Africa Seven (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A great little groover by an artist who may have been born in Africa, but who works here on the Munich scene of the 70s – with help from a surprisingly strong jazz lineup that includes Benny Bailey on trumpets, Sal Nistico on tenor, and the mighty Klaus Weiss on drums, keyboards, and percussion! In fact, the touch of Klaus is all over this set – as the groovers often have the same strong vibe as his own funky fusion records of the time – but given a different spin, thanks to the vocals and songwriting skills of Charly Kingson, who hails from Cameroun. Charly's the cousin of Manu Dibango, and while his sound is equally groovy, it's nicely different – on titles that icnlude "Manyaka", "Nimele Bolo", "Born In Africa", and "Reviens Moi".

A great compilation of heavenly soul tracks by this successful mid 60s combo! The record includes the group's monster crossover hit "Our Day Will Come", plus lots of other nicer stuff that's pretty darn hard to find – like "The End Of The World", "Does He Really Care for Me", "Moonlight & Music", and "I Cry Alone". Nice notes, good sound, and a nice one to have until the originals come around (if they ever come around!) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jerry ButlerVery Best Of The Vee Jay Years ... CD
Vee Jay/Charly (UK), Early 60s. Used ... $14.99
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 26 tracks in all, including the titles "Smile", "I Stand Accused", "Where's The Girl", "I'm A Telling You", "A Lonely Soldier", "Lost", "Come Back My Love", "Don't Drive Me Away", "Moon River", "You Can Run", "Whatever You Want", "I've Been Trying", "I Don't Want To Hear It Anymore", and "Good Times".

Donald Byrd & Pepper AdamsMotor City Scene ... CD
Bethlehem/Charly (UK), 1960. Used ... $5.99
One of the most hard-hitting sessions ever recorded for the Bethlehem label – and a rare date for the imprint by the team of trumpeter Donald Byrd and saxophonist Pepper Adams! The style here is similar to work the pair recorded for Riverside and Blue Note at the same time – razor-sharp hardbop, played with a strong sense of imagination, and plenty of room for drawn-out, creatively-blown solos. Adams is especially great – playing the baritone here with the leanness of a tenor sax – but Byrd is wonderful too, and really starts to break out of some of the more staid modes of his work from a few years back. The group's a sextet that includes guitarist Kenny Burrell, pianist Tommy Flanagan, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer "Hey" Lewis (another name for Louis Hayes?) – on titles that include "Trio", "Philson", "Libeccio", and "Bitty Ditty".

LibreIncreible ... CD
Salsoul/Charly (UK), 1981. Used ... $14.99
A very well-titled set from Libre – as the group were one of the more incredible acts on the New York scene of the 70s – always a bit more underground than the salsa mainstream, and able to easily bridge so many generations with their music! Leader Manny Oquendo has a great ear for unusual sounds – and finds a way to blend contemporary jazzy currents with some deeper Afro-Cuban rhythms – with a sound that's both holding to tradition, but able to really push things forward – without some of the more reactionary tendencies found in some of his scenemates. The quality of the musicians is one of the great strengths of the record – as the set features work from Dave Valentin on flute, Jerry Gonzalez on congas and trumpet, and Papo Vasquez on trombone – under the direction of bassist Andy Gonzalez, who handles arrangements with Marty Sheller and Luis Cruz. Titles include "Tracionera", "Decidete", "Yo No Vuelvo Contigo", and "Goza La Vida". CD

Early work from Pacheco – ostensibly his first recording as a leader, cut in 1960 with arranger Rene Hernandez, and with a different edge than his later famous pachanga sides for Alegre. The feel of the material is a bit edgier, but Pacheco's flute work is right up there with his best officially-released sides of the time. The material is brought out of the vaults here by the Coco label, and titles include "Sambia", "Clap Your Hands Cha Cha", "El Bodeguero", "Nicolasa", "Mambo Inn", "Patricia", and "Corazon De Melon".

SpanielsStormy Weather ... LP
Vee Jay/Charly (UK), Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Genius work from one of the strongest vocal groups to ever come out of the Chicago scene! The Spaniels burst upon the scene in the mid 50s recording for the Vee Jay label with a sophisticated harmony sound that was a lot stronger than some of their contemporaries on the east coast. The group had an amazing way with a ballad, but could also groove in a hard rolling R&B style too. This Charly reissue includes good notes – and 16 tracks that include "Stormy Weather", "Red Sails In The Sunset", "Let's Make Up", "One Hundred Years From Today", "Please Don't Tease", "You Painted Pictures", "I'll Be Waiting", "I Owe You", and "Three Little Words".

Irma ThomasIn Between Tears (80s pressing) ... LP
Charly R&B (UK), 1973. Near Mint- ... $16.99
An overlooked gem from Irma Thomas – and one of her deepest soul albums ever! The set was recorded with Swamp Dogg at the production helm, and he gives Irma this wonderfully rootsy feel throughout the record – the kind of vibe she definitely never got in the 60s, and a sound that seems to unlock even richer tones from her wonderful vocals! And although Swamp's in charge, the record's definitely Irma's own, too – as there's none of the usual Dogg-heavy cliches that might get in the way of the vocals, and instead Swamp is supremely respectful of everything Irma has to offer – and really helps her focus on her best strengths. The set was recorded at Capricorn Studios in Macon, with Duane Allman guitar on a few cuts – and titles include "She'll Never Be Your Wife", "What's So Wrong With You Loving Me", "Coming From Behind", "Turn My World Around", "These Four Walls", and "You're The Dog".

A great look at the early years of Bobby Womack – featuring tracks from his first few albums for the Minit label, plus later hits from his mighty years at United Artists! Bobby had a sound like few other singers of his time – a raspy vocal approach that was instantly recognizable, and which stepped out proud and strong no matter what the setting. The double LP features 24 of Bobby's best numbers, with a track list that really gets at the genius of these early years! Titles include "Woman's Gotta Have It", "Lookin' For A Love", "I'm A Midnight Mover", "What Is This", "Harry Hippie", "Across 110th Street", "Daylight", "I Can Understand It", "Communication", "Nobody Wants You When You're Down & Out", "It's All Over Now", "That's The Way I Feel About Cha", "Check It Out", and "If You Don't Want My Love, Give It Back".

King/Charly (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the greatest R&B work you could ever hope to buy! Wynonie Harris was one of the all-time greats – a raw, raunchy, hard-rockin singer who was getting into more trouble with the law, ladies, and booze than most 70s rock groups combined! Wynonie's songs for King are the stuff that kick-started rock and roll – and even from today's perspective, they're still gosh darn hard-rolling, filled with subject matter like drinkin, gamblin, and sleepin around that you'll be hard-pressed to beat in most gangster hip hop albums. And on top of it all, Wynonie's got one hell of a sense of humor, put over the top perfectly by his great swinging vocal style. Titles include "Good Morning Judge", "I Like My Baby's Pudding", "Bloodshoot Eyes", "Quiet Whiskey", "Lovin Machine", "Keep On Churnin", and others. LP, Vinyl record album

Classic Chicago blues issued on Vee Jay – recorded by John Lee Hooker in a handful of sessions over the second half of the 50s – an incredible document of Hooker's lonely roots as well as a benchmark for the band based live blues scenes in the years to come! I'm John Lee Hooker was released at the end of the 50s by Vee-Jay – and in features some tunes with Hooker stamping it out solo, and others with rollicking group setting. Wonderful, legendary work! All the songs are Hooker originals and they include his classic crossover track "Boogie Chillun", plus "Dimples", "Baby Lee", "Crawlin King Snake", "I'm So Excited", "Everynight", "Time Is Marching", "I Love You Honey" and more! CD also features 4 bonus tracks, including "Trouble Blues", "You Can Lead Me Baby", and "Unfriendly Woman". CD

Sweeeeet soul from Chicago! The Natural Four were one of the greatest soul harmony groups of the 70's – and their work on the Curtom has an amazing "rough with the smooth" quality that really sets them apart from east coast groups of the time! Part of the strength of the set has to do with Leroy Hutson – who arranged and produced the whole album, and gives it a superdope quality that makes it stand proudly with the best work on Curtom Records of the time. The sound is full and polished, yet also honest, earnest, and personal – in that great mix of moods that Hutson and Curtis Mayfield could bring to their own work of the time. The whole set's a classic, and titles include "Try Love Again", "You Bring Out The Best In Me", "Can This Be Real?", "This is What's Happening Now", and "Things Will Be Better Tomorrow". CD

The group's led by William Millan, who plays bass and tres on the recording, and by Henry Fiol, who sings lead vocals and plays conga – and the pair dip into plenty of the rootsy elements you might guess from the cover image, but deliver the whole thing with the cool clarity of the best 70s Latin recordings on Salsoul. Titles include "Lejos Del Batey", "Huerfanito", "Yo No Como Camaron", "A Celebrar Bozales", and "Chango". CD

✨✧ Archie SheppYasmina, A Black Woman/Poem For Malcolm ... CD
BYG/Charly (UK), 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tremendous bit of jazz history – 2 classic Archie Shepp albums on 1 CD! Yasmina features Archie Shepp at his spiritual best – recording in Paris in 1969, and absorbing a heck of a lot of pan-African influences! The centerpiece of the album is the amazing "Yasmina" – a long track that builds with passion and fire, pulsing with an intensity that you'd expect more from Pharoah Sanders than Shepp himself. Next up is "Sonny's Back", a wonderful straight jazz groover with Archie and Hank Mobley on twin tenors upfront – making a rare and memorable recorded appearance together! The set's capped off by a mellow version of "Body & Soul", one that points towards the more soulful side of Shepp's work in the 70s. Poem For Malcolm is one of Shepp's most memorable LPs for BYG. Side one has him playing with Burton Greene, Alan Silva, Philly Joe Jones, and Claude Delcloo on the extended Mamarose/Poem For Malcolm. The track starts out with very free playing, then moves into a more subdued passage, with Shepp's recitation of his "Poem For Malcolm". Side two has a great lineup that includes Grachan Moncour III, Malachi Favors, and Hank Mobley, who gives one of the wildest performances of his life! The group runs through the 20 minute track Rain Forest/Oleo, and begins with a dark, spare performance, then leaps into a reading of "Oleo" that's filled with fire. CD

BYG/Charly (UK), 1969/1970/1971. Used 3 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic package that explores the full range of genius on the legendary avant label BYG/Actuel – one of the most important European imprints at the end of the 60s! Actuel was home to some of the best avant garde jazz coming out of Paris in the late 60s and early 70s – an especially important document of the post-68 revolution in European music – at a time when so many American players where showing up in France, and finding great opportunities in the new freedoms of the scene! The package features seminal sides from US avant musicians – like Steve Lacy, Anthony Braxton, Clifford Thornton, Don Cherry, Jimmy Lyons, Archie Shepp, Sonny Sharrock, Sunny Murray, Grachan Moncur III, and The Art Ensemble Of Chicago – and it also features work by European musicians like Claude Delcloo and Jacques Coursil, plus genre-busting work by MEV and Gong as well. The 3CD box features a 48 page book – with lots of great illustrations, and notes from Thurston Moore and Byron Coley – and the set features 26 long tracks in all! CD

At the time they were taking Paris by storm, the Art Ensemble recorded these brilliant albums – both of which are some of their strongest early work, far more well-formed than any of their individual expressions recorded earlier in Chicago! The CD features the group at their best – playing very tightly, but also with a sense of whimsy and imagination, and the kind of free-thinking exploration that informed a whole generation of jazz musicians, offering a different mode of expression than the spiritualism of the post-Coltrane years. Includes "A Brain For The Seine", a real classic by the band – plus "Jackson In Your House", "Get In Line", "Song for Charles", "Dexterity" and "Old Time Religion", and "Rock Out". CD

This rare 1975 set was the brainchild of 3 of Germany's funkiest jazz players – drummer Charly Antolini, whose drums crackled on some of the best MPS recordings; keyboardist Max Greger Jr, who made some great straighter albums in the 60s; and bassist Milan Pilar, an electric player with a really warm and round tone. Together, the trio grooves through some excellent funky numbers – really jamming with a soulful groove, as Greger switches effortlessly between piano, moog, Fender Rhodes, mellotron, and organ!

Coney Island Baby further marks the continuing legacy of Lou Reed as a hell of a songwriter – able to portray human strivings and failings with a surprisingly sensitive ear – all in the kind of modes that might not hit you over the head the first time around, but which are completely compelling over the next few spins. There's always that wry little quality to Reed's vocals here – that bite that almost comes as a weary attempt to snap back at the world – and while the album's maybe not the most transgressive release of 1976, it's got a subtle power that's made it a lot more long-lasting than some of its contemporaries. Titles include "Crazy Feeling", "Charly's Girl", "A Gift", "Ooohhh Baby", "Coney Island Baby", and "She's My Best Friend". LP, Vinyl record album

Dieter ReithHappy Afternoon ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1966. Used ... $11.99
An essential bit of piano jazz from MPS – and one of the rarest sides on their Saba label from the 60s! German keyboardist Dieter Reith plays with a cracklin' trio that includes Peter Witte on bass, and powerhouse Charly Antolini on drums. The tracks are a mix of originals and jazz standards, and they're all played with a light lively approach, and the trademark piano jazz groove that's made some of these MPS albums favorites on the international groove scene. Some of the best tracks are Deiter's "Happy Afternoon" and "How About A Blues", which both have a nice breezy groove to them, but the record also has nice versions of "Green Dolphin Street", "Wives & Lovers", and "Days Of Wine And Roses".

Shangri-LasLeader Of The Pack ... LP
Red Bird, 1965. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Singers Unlimited & Art Van DammeInvitation ... CD
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1973. New Copy ... $9.99
One of the coolest albums ever cut by the Singers Unlimited – thanks to great instrumentation from the mighty Art Van Damme! 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".

VariousAfrica Airways 4 – Disco Funk Touchdown 1976 to 1983 (with bonus download) ... LP
Africa Seven (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $19.99
We've had some great trips on Africa Airways in recent years – and this sweet fourth set proves once again that the fun lies in the journey, not the destination! As before, the cuts here share a lot more with American funk than you might think – especially the tight late 70s style with lots of basslines at the bottom, and some warmly jazzy currents in the instrumentation – which often serve to provide a superb setting for the vocals over the top – sometimes just sing-song chorus bits, but merged perfectly with the grooves! Tracks here come from French labels like Fiesta and Sonodisc, and there's definitely some of that criss-crossing between West African and Parisian modes going on – on titles that include "Sun Explosion" by Manu Dibango, "Nassa Nassa" by Uta Bella, "Nimele Bolo" by Charly Kingson, "Africain" by Momo Joseph, "Biram" by Kemayo & K-System, "Soul Magabe" by Pierre Didy Tchakounte, "Funny Saga" by The Monsters, and "Tinini Yanana" by Jake Sollo.

VariousSoul Togetherness 2017 – 15 Modern Soul Room Gems ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $9.99
Lots of killer contemporary soul tracks – but served up with the kind of classic warmth we've always loved in the Soul Togetherness series! The set's got a great selection of well-chosen cuts that are mostly from the current underground – some by artists who've gotten a shot at fame, others who are waiting to be discovered – all brought together in a great array of grooves that have as much going on in the rhythms as they do in the wonderful vocals over the top! Tracks include "Back To You" by Paul Craver, "Kissing You" by Wipe The Needle with Lifford, "History" by Los Charly's Orchestra with Omar, "Love On Hold" by Aeroplane with Tawatha Agee, "When I Love" by Mike City with Faith Evans, "It's All Divine (boogie back ext mix)" by James Day with Trina Broussard, "Good Kinda Lovin" by James King, "Doublin Down" by The Jack Moves, "Keepin Love New (club mix)" by Wez, "Love X Love" by Thames River Soul with Kenny Thomas, "There 4 U" by Leela James, "One For The Money (gold digger rmx)" by The Groove Association with Georgie B, and "Flowered Tears (Michele Chiavarini & DJ Spen ext flower mix)" by SEL.
