✨✧ Bootsy CollinsBootsy? Player Of The Year ... CD
Warner, 1978. Used ... $4.99
What can we say? Bootsy's on top of the world here – not only The Player Of The Year, but also the most soulful artist in the P-Funk stable, and a master of the smooth sly slinky groove that would forever be taken up by bands from LA – both in the immediate soul years, and in later sampling hip hop ones. The record's got a sophisticated soul approach that moves the music way past slapped basslines and funny glasses – and thanks to top-line musicianship, including some help from Fred Wesley, Bootsy avoids any cliches that might have buried this one under the mountain of P-Funk albums hitting the market at the same time. Includes the monster track "Hollywood Squares" – plus "May The Force Be With You", "Very Yes", "Bootsy?", and "Bootzilla". CD

✨✧ Afro SoultetAfrodesia ... CD
Banyon/Luv N' Haight, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $7.99
The wildly diverse, heavily percussive global jazz, soul, and exotica inspired Afrodesia from the late 60s combo Afro Soultet – a crazy rare one, too! The group purportedly has roots in Texas, but incarnations of it were gigging around LA a bit earlier as Afro Latin Blues Quintet +1 and a bit later as Afro Latin Soultet. Here they play with boundless inspiration from around the globe. Afro Latin percussion and rhythms hold it all together, but they bring in strains of Latin soul, African rhythms, straighter jazz and madly percussive instrumental rock. Producer/composer/arranger/raconteur Jack Millman plays drums in the group as Johnny Kitchen, and other players include Joey Dubreau on vibes, Frank Morris on guitar and harmonica, Eddie Paris on drums, Dean Elliot on percussion, William Quinn on flute & sax, and Bill Collins on keys. Includes "Afrodesia", "Mozamba", "Soul Rockin'", "Afro Revolt", "Torrid Zone", "Oom Gowa", "Slave Traders", "Drumbouie", "Aphro Bugaloo", "Chocolate Drop", "Le Berber" and "Sand, Sun And Sea". CD

Dizzy GillespieLive At The 1965 Monterey Jazz Festival ... CD
Monterey Jazz Festival/Concord, 1965. Used ... $2.99
A nice set by Diz at the 1965 Monterey Jazz Festival – backed by a great group of players – released here for the first time ever! The set opens with a fiery day after, and the set takes some equally hard charging turns plus some relaxed moments, too – and includes some surprises, too. Big Black is killing it on congas for this set – and the other players include James Moody on flute and tenor, Kenny Barron on piano, Christopher White on bass and Rudy Collins on drums. Other titles include "Trinidad, Goodbye", "Poor Joe", "Night In Tunisia", "Ungawa" and "Gega De Saudade (No More Blues)", plus a fun comedy sketch in the middle. CD

Dizzy GillespieSomething Old/Something New ... CD
Verve/Philips, 1963. Used ... $6.99
Beautiful work from one of Dizzy's greatest periods – and an album not to pass up! The set features Diz playing 5 old bop tunes, and 4 new tracks from the pen of the great Tom McIntosh, one of the scene's brightest arrangers at the time, and a talent who was looming large, thanks to support from folks like Diz and James Moody. Moody's in the group – blowing tenor with a quintet that includes Kenny Barron on piano, Chris White on bass, and Rudy Collins on drums – and his tone is incredible, with a darkness that he'd rarely had before, and the whole group has a mixture of modern tones and soulful grooves that's beyond compare! Titles include "November Afternoon", "The Cup Bearers", "The Day After", "This Lovely Afternoon", "Good Bait", "Dizzy Atmosphere" and the non-LP cut "Early Mornin' Blues". CD

Earl MorganDC Dub Connection ... CD
Auralux (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $9.99
A gem of a dub LP, one that has languished in obscurity for too long! Heptone Earl Morgan didn't cut a huge volume of music as a producer, basically filling down time between Heptone's gigs in the latter part of the bands' career working with up and coming artists, but he had enough clout to generate this tasty set of rhythms and handed them over to Jammy and Scientist to work their dub magic on at Tubby's so you know the set's rough and ready to rock steady! The gang's all here, with Sly, Horsemouth, Boo Richards, Ranchie McLean, Leroy Sibbles, Flabba Holt, Boris Gardiner and Lloyd Parks pumping up the jams with some heavy duty drum and bass workouts, and an all star cast filling in the gaps, including Ansel Collins, Winston Wright, Bo Peep, Bingy Bunny, Deadly Headly,. Sticky, Skully and more! There's even a couple of bad Black Ark rhythms from the Heptones excellent Party Time LP, given a heavy dub rub to round out the set, one you'll have to part with a pretty penny to grab on vinyl! 10 tracks in all, including "Bo Yarka Dub", "Vibration Rock", "Rhythm Macka", "Pure Sorrow Dub", "Party Time Dub", "Jamaican Hammer Horror", "Apartment 48", and "Dub Transaction".

Mel Torme, Francis Faye, Johnny Hartman, & OthersGeorge Gershwin's Porgy & Bess ... CD
Bethlehem/Shout Factory, 1956. Used 2CD ... $6.99
One of our favorite recordings ever of George Gershwin's Porgy & Bess – done by Bethlehem Records in the mid 50s, and featuring nearly every one of the label's great talents at the time! The choice of the lead characters is a bit odd – as Mel Torme plays Porgy and Francis Faye plays Bess – but both singers are actually pretty darn great for the set, and really bring a lot out of the tunes. Plus, the other artists on the set really keep things interesting – as the collection features vocal performances by Johnny Hartman, Frank Rosolino, Betty Roche, Bob Dorough, and Sallie Blair. Plus, the whole thing's presented as Gershwin wrote it – complete with narration by Al Jazzbo Collins, and a number of strong instrumental passages. Music is performed by groups led by Russ Garcia, Duke Ellington, Pat Moran, and Stan Levy – and players are an array of the best of both the New York and LA scenes at the time! Plus, this great reissue version features a full 29 minute bonus track – the "Porgy & Bess Suite", which is an extended instrumental performed by Russ Garcia. Also comes with a really great 48 page booklet too! CD

VariousDon Letts Presents The Mighty Trojan Sound ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1970s. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
Don Letts has always been a mover and shaker on the London scene, building connections between the punk movement and helping a lot of Jamaican artists get signed to British labels, so it's only fitting that he should be tapped as selector for a collection of tracks from the deep, deep Trojan vaults. Like his Social Classics comp, this awesome 2 disc set is a tremendous selection of vocal, dee jay, instrumental and dub cuts, some well known, but many more obscure and still great nuggets. 44 tracks, all killer, no filler! Includes John Holt "It's A Jam In The Streets", Big Youth "Foreman Vs Frazier", Hopeton Lewis "Boom Shacka Laka", Shorty "President Mash Up The Resident", Glen Washington "Rockers No Crackers", Junior Byles "Fever", Lloyd Robinson "Cuss Cuss", Gregory Isaacs "Mr Know It All", The Hippy Boys "Doctor No Go", Karl Bryan "Soul Scorcher", Harry J All Stars "The Liquidator", The Chosen Few "Theme From Shaft", The Aggrovators "Channel One Is A Joker", Boris Gardiner "Elizabethan Reggae", King Tubby "I Trim The Barber", Dave & Ansell Collins "Double Barrel", Scientist "Scientist (Stalag 17)", Linval Thompson "Jamaican Callie (version)" and Prince Jammy & The Aggrovators "Out Of Order".

✨✧ VariousJames Brown's Funky People Part 1 ... CD
Polydor, Early 70s. Used ... $5.99
Volume one of the legendary compilation of James Brown produced stuff that taught us to love his other work back in the 80's when it was released. We're not going to pretend that we had all the original stuff when we were kids, but we did have this great comp – which includes monster stuff by The JBs, Lyn Collins, and Maceo. Classic JB production stuff, with 13 great tracks, including a bonus CD cut that's not on the original LP (which is out of print, by the way.) This was a sampler's dream in the 80's, and it's still a listener's dream in this decade! Tracks include "Same Beat" by the JBs, "Parrty" by Maceo, "If You Don't Get It The First Time" by the JBs, "Take Me Just As I Am" by Lyn Collins, "Rock Me Again & Again & Again & Again" by Lyn Collins, "Hot Pants Road" by The JBs, "Mama Feelgood" by Lyn Collins, "Think" by Lyn Collins, and "Gimme Some More" by The JBs!

✨✧ James BrownBlack Caesar ... CD
Polygram, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Damn, is this a great record! The album's not only one of the best blacksploitation soundtracks ever recorded, it's also one of James Brown's funkiest outings of the early 70s! Nearly every cut's a winner, and James gets some very funky help from The JBs, who groove hard on the best instrumental cuts, plus Lyn Collins, who sings a sock version of "Mama Feelgood" that's worth the price of the record alone! Includes the classic "Down & Out in New York City", plus "Blind Man Can See It", "Sportin' Life", "The Boss", "Dirty Harri", and "Chase". CD

✨✧ ParliamentMothership Connection ... CD
Casablanca, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Here's where it all happens – the huge culmination of all the years of heavy funk and psychedelic soul created by George Clinton and the P-Funk empire – fused into an amazingly tight groove that helped win over much bigger audiences than ever before! The album title and cover are very fitting – as George Clinton launches the mothership, forges his classic space-funk image, and blows the P-Funk empire into an arena-filling mega-star act – all with grooves that are still some of the tightest, sharpest funk you'll ever hear – all these many decades later. The instrumentation is razor-sharp – played by giants like Fred Wesley, Maceo Parker, Bootsy Collins, and Bernie Worrell – and the lyrics still have all the edginess and naughtiness of the earlier years – tied together wonderfully to make a very unified album, and one that's full of classics too! Titles include "Mothership Connection (Star Child)", "Night Of The Thumpasorus Peoples", "P-Funk (Wants To Get Funked Up)", "Handcuffs", "Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Off The Sucker)", and "Unfunky Ufo". CD
