✨✧ Bootsy's Rubber BandAhh...The Name Is Bootsy, Baby! ... CD
Warner, 1977. Used ... $4.99
Massive work from Bootsy Collins – one of his best-ever solo albums, and a perfect summation of the P-Funk groove – focused strongly through Bootsy's own sense of stardom! George Clinton worked with Collins on production, and the album's as tight as the best Parliament or Funkadelic work of the time – particularly the latter on their killer 70s sides for Warner, which was also the home for Bootsy. The Horny Horns are helping out on this one, which gives the album a strong instrumental drive – but the real star is Bootsy, whose sexy vocals and good sense of soul keep things firmly on track throughout. Features the cuts "What's A Telephone Bill?", "Munchies For Your Love", "We Want Bootsy", "The Pinocchio Theory", and "Rubber Duckie". CD

Charlie Mariano & OthersJazz Scene San Francisco – Modern Music From San Francisco/Charlie Mariano Sextet ... CD
Fantasy, Early/Mid 50s. Used ... $7.99
Incredible stuff! The CD features work from four seminal modern mid 50s groups – all recorded at the Blackhawk nightclub in San Francisco at the height of their powers. About half the CD features work by a young Charlie Mariano – playing here with a sextet that includes Dick Collins on trumpet and Richard Wyands on piano, both perfectly matched players for Charlie's young, icy, modern tone. Remaining tracks feature the Vince Guaraldi quartet with Jerry Dodgion on alto, the Dodgion Quartet with Sonny Clark on piano, and the Ron Crotty trio with Vince on piano and celeste. The collection of tracks is extremely well put together – as all tunes are united by a post-bop approach that looks strongly towards modern jazz, yet which never fails to swing. Great stuff – and an essential chapter of the emerging 50s underground. Titles include "After Coffee", "Ginza", "Calling Dr Funk", "My Friend Ethel", "The Nymph", "The Groove", and "Between 8th & 10th on Mission Street". CD

Mel Torme, Francis Faye, Johnny Hartman, & OthersGeorge Gershwin's Porgy & Bess ... CD
Bethlehem/Jazz Heritage, 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

VariousDancehall '69 – 40 Skinhead Reggae Rarities ... CD
Trojan, 1969/1970. Used 2CDs ... $24.99
A really great set of classic reggae and rocksteady tracks – crucial tunes in Britain's important skinhead scene, one of the key moments of crossover reggae culture! The package does a really great job of picking out the tracks that were hits with the skinheads – and it makes for a collection that has a really different feel than other reggae compilations, especially those on the Trojan label. There's a total of 40 tracks on 2CDs, complete with good notes – and titles include "The Split" by The Rudies, "Black Panther" by Sir Collins, "Walking Thru Jerusalem" by The Corporation, "Tear Them" by Desmond Riley, "Revenge Of Eastwood" by The Prophets, "Zion I" by King Horror, "Bush Doctor" by The Music Doctors, "Your Boss DJ" by Dice The Boss, "Power Cut" by Glen Adams, "Dreams To Remember" by The Hippy Boys, "The Conqueror" by Derrick Morgan, "Red Ash" by Karl Bryan, and "Fight For Your Right" by Busty Brown.

✨✧ VariousDon Letts Presents The Mighty Trojan Sound ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1970s. Used 2 CDs ... $23.99
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".

✨✧ Four TopsIndestructible ... CD
Arista, 1988. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Indestructible sounds from The Four Tops – a set that still has the legendary quartet going strong! The production and arrangements definitely show a late 80s Arista Records touch, with a fair bit of keyboards and electric rhythms – but the core sound of the group is still very firmly in place – those amazing vocals of Levi Stubbs, Duk Fakir, Lawrence Payton, and Obie Benson – soaring out at a level that still tops the singing chops of all the younger groups of the time. Production is by a fair number of big names – including Narada Michael Walden, Jerry Knight, and Albert Hammond – as well as Phil Collins and Huey Lewis, who are clearly going for more of a crossover appeal for the group. Yet even the slick spots can't dim the strength of the vocals – on titles that include "Change Of Heart", "I'm Only Wounded", "Loco In Acapulco", "When You Dance", "Let's Jam", and "If Ever A Love There Was".

✨✧ Marie Queenie LyonsSoul Fever ... CD
DeLuxe/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A holy grail of funky music – the one and only album ever cut by Marie Queenie Lyons, a heck of a hard soul single who's best known for her rare funky 45s! The album is stunning – every bit as great as any of Marie's singles, and with an incredibly unified sound that should have made the album an instant soul classic as soon as it was released. Think Marva Whitney, Vicki Anderson, Lyn Collins, and other sock-soul divas – and you've only got part of the picture! Plus, some of the tracks on the set were written by a young Don Pullen, who supposedly also played on the record – in a rare funky appearance in his pre-avant jazz days. Includes a funky remake of "Fever", plus the cuts "I Don't Want Nobody To Have It But You", "Your Key Don't Fit Anymore", "You Used Me", "Daddy's House", "See & Don't See", "Your Thing Ain't No Good Without My Thing", "I Want My Freedom", and "Try Me".

✨✧ ParliamentMothership Connection (Remastered & Expanded) ... CD
Casablanca/Mercury, 1975. Used ... 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 features a bonus version of "Star Child", a promo radio version! CD
