Ashford & SimpsonSend It (Warner pressing) ... CD
Warner, 1977. Used ... $6.99
Excellent work from Ashford & Simpson – with some modern soul groovers that are among the best they ever did! The album includes their original reading of "Top Of The Stairs", a great sexy soul duet that was later done by Collins & Collins – and it's also got a fantastic instrumental reading of "Bourgie Bourgie", a track that you may know from a more famous John Davis disco version. Other tracks include "By Way Of Love's Express", "Let Love Use Me", "Send It", and "Waited Too Long". More proof that leaving Motown was a great move for them! CD

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 ... $4.99
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".

✨✧ VariousJames Brown's Funky People Part 3 ... CD
Polydor, Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing – and the best yet in this legendary series! Like the other volumes, this is a collection of funky work produced by James Brown for other artists, most of it lifted from his legendary People Records imprint. However, unlike the others, or at least unlike the first volume, this volume's got some amazing stuff that almost never shows up on other reissues – and it's even got some incredible unreleased material! The whole thing's a super-heavy super-funky dip into some of the rarest James Brown-related material you can find – if you can find it at all in any other format. Titles include "Pick Up The Pieces One By One" by AABB, "There Was A Time" by Dee Felice Trio, "Doin The Do" by Bobby Byrd & The JBs, "Who Knows" by Beau Dollar, "Talkin Loud & Sayin Nothin (original rock version)" by James Brown, "Mr Hot Pants" by The Believers, "Give It Up Or Turnit Loose" by Lyn Collins (a 45-only track), "How You Gonna Get Respect?" by Hank Ballard, "Hang Out & Hustle" by Sweet Charles (a 45-only track), and "Blow Your Head (undubbed version)" by The JBs! Great stuff – and at this price, you'll be funky and rich! CD

✨✧ Isley BrothersMasterpiece ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1985. Used ... Out Of Stock
A hard title to carry for most groups, but just about any release by the Isley Brothers is a masterpiece in our book! Even at this mid 80s point, the Brothers sound great – sliding along in some warm mellow tracks that make the album really worth owning – the kind of laidback soul tunes they first started crafting so well in the previous decade, and which continue to sparkle here – even amidst some more programmed rhythms. The group do a surprisingly wonderful job on a Phil Collins tune – "If Leaving Me Was Easy" – sliding along in really spare space that's just like the old days – and other cuts include the smooth stepper "Colder Are My Nights", plus "Release Your Love", "The Most Beautiful Girl", "Come To Me", "You Never Know When You're Gonna Fall In Love", and "May I". CD
