Dr JohnGris Gris ... CD
Atco/Collectors Choice, 1968. Used ... $9.99
The great Dr John at his freaky deaky best – working here in a mindblowing mix of New Orleans roots and late 60s psych – all served up in some heady studio space and instrumental touches! The sound's unlike anything that ever went before – and is way better here than on some of John's later, straighter material – clearly the work of years of creative genius, as the Doctor, Mac Rebennack, draws on both his heritage from the Crescent City, and his years of work in the underground rock scene in LA! Harold Batiste handled the arrangements – and the record really paves the way for so many famous LA/New Orleans albums to come in the 70s – but never with results this mindblowingly trippy. The tracks are wild, funky, and messed-up New Orleans R&B filtered through a heavy dose of psychedelics – and titles include "Mama Roux", "Croker Courtbullion", "Gris Gris Gumbo Ya Ya", and the original version of "I Walk On Guilded Splinters".

✨✧ Four FreshmenMore Four Freshmen & Five Trombones/In Person Vol 2 ... CD
Capitol/Collectors Choice, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Late Capitol work by the Four Freshmen – 2 albums that are some of the most obscure in their catalog! More 4 Freshmen & Five Trombones is a fitting follow-up to the group's original album – one of the best in their 50s catalog, thanks largely to Pete Rugolo, who makes a return appearance here to handle the arrangements. The sound is sublime – with tracks that are a bit more in the 60s mode of things, but still arranged to perfection by Rugolo. Four Freshmen In Person Volume 2 is another set of live recordings by the group – something that might seem discontinuous with their magical studio work of the 50s, but which only goes to show how great they really are – as the boys perform wonderfully in the live setting, using no studio tricks to get their unique vocal sound, making us wish we had the opportunity to see them live at the time! There's a total of 23 cuts in all – and titles include "The Second Time Around", "Midnight Sun", "Girl From Ipanema", "More", "Taste Of Honey", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Poinciana", "Wail For The Bread", and "Act III".

VariousGolden Torch – Tunstall, Stoke-On-Trent 1969 to 1973 ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
A hotbed of soul tracks that played big at the legendary Golden Torch – one of the most famous hotspots for Northern Soul on the British scene at the end of the 60s! But as with the best Brit clubs of its type, the music here is all American – a choice collection of under-discovered soul gems from the US – of the sort that UK collectors were already turning up decades ago, then unleashing on dancefloors who were ready to devour music that had hardly gotten any sort of a notice back home! The track list is great – classic enough to be remembered well from these days, but still pretty darn obscure to most fans of American soul of the 60s – 14 smoking tracks that include "Blowing Up My Mind" by The Exciters, "Slide Tomatoes" by Just Brothers, "Compared To What" by Mr Floods Party, "Quick Change Artist" by The Soul Twins, "Walk Like A Man" by Johnny Moore, "Keep On Keepin On" by NF Porter, "Crackin Up Over You" by Roy Hamilton, "You Don't Want Me No More" by Major Lance, "I Worship You Baby" by The Glories, "The Slow Fizz" by The Sapphires, and "Bok To Bach" by Father's Angels.

VariousHarmony Of The Soul – Vocal Groups 1962 to 1977 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
An incredible collection based around one of our favorite styles of soul music ever – the smooth, mellow male group soul approach that flourished strongly in the late 60s and early 70s – as kind of a more mature, sophisticated take on earlier doo wop modes! Like the previous format, the approach here is very heavy on vocal interplay – but never in a mode that's too overdone, nor filled with tricks and turns – and which instead has the quartet or quintet voices coming together in these completely sublime ways – gliding, stepping, and mellow-grooving along – in an assortment of tracks that are all pretty darn rare, and which includes nine tracks that appear here for the first time ever! The sound quality is wonderful, and the notes are very detailed – and the whole thing's way better than any sort of dodgy package that group soul collectors usually have to settle for – done in the same approach as the In Perfect Harmony series on Kent. Titles include "For The Rest Of My Days" by The Pretenders, "Why Can't It Be" by The Windjammers, "Girl Girl Girl" by The Determinations, "I Destroyed Your Love (part 1)" by Special Delivery, "Send My Baby Back" by San Francisco TKOs, "Where Or When" by The Superbs, "Shady Lady" by Choice Of Colors, "Whatcha Gonna Do Baby" by The Lovers, "Let Me Take Care Of Your Heart" by The Smith Brothers, "Without A Word" by The MMs & The Peanuts, and "Crying Bitter Tears" by The Steelers.
