Collins & CollinsCollins & Collins ... CD
A&M/Souldify (Netherlands), 1980. Used ... $19.99
A stunning set – and one of our favorite modern soul albums ever! The set was recorded at Sigma Sound Studios in 1980, and it's one of the best-ever records to come out of that hallowed hall of grooves – a one-off debut from the team of Tonee & Bill Collins, set to impeccable arrangements from the mighty John Davis! The set's not really disco – more a blend of mellow soul and midtempo club – with a sound that evokes artists like Barry White, Leon Ware, and Leroy Hutson – but which also grooves with a feel that's all its own. Nearly every cut's fantastic, and although you may know the duo's classic "Top Of The Stairs" from other collections, there's loads of other nice tracks here too – like "You Know How To Make Me Feel So Good", "Can't Turn Down Love", and "You Made Me Believe".

New Lyn CollinsCheck Me Out If You Don't Know Me By Now (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/P-Vine (Japan), 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The mellower of Lyn Collins' two albums for the People label – but still pretty darn fantastic! At some level, it seems like Lyn's taking on the rest of the soul industry – showing them that she can kick some major booty on her interpretations of hits like "Backstabbers", "If You Don't Know Me By Now", "Try A Little Tenderness", and "Mr Big Stuff", which is one of her best funky tracks ever, and better than Jean Knight's original! She also shines extremely well on the original cuts, though – especially the funky classic "Rock Me Again & Again & Again", plus the often-overlooked mellow soul groovers "To Each His Own", "Put It On The Line", and "How Long Can I Keep It Up". Production by James Brown, of course! Plus, this Japanese reissue adds in 8 more bonus tracks that were originally singles-only cuts, like "Me And My Baby Got A Good Thing Going", "We Want to Paaarty", "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose", "You Can't Love Me, If You Don't Respect Me", and "Don't Make Me Over". Great stuff, and an excellent mix of a good album with rare non-LP material! CD

New Lyn CollinsThink (About It) ... CD
People/P-Vine (Japan), 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The funkiest album ever recorded by Lyn Collins – a stone solid set that really lives up to the legacy of her funky 45s! Like those gems, this one has Collins working with James Brown on production and the JBs in the background – creating a razor-sharp groove that's probably the closest any female singer ever came in the 70s to matching The Godfather's groove! The album's got Lyn shifting between heavy funk numbers and mellower soul cuts – really pushing things to the max with an incredibly deep take on a few older favorites, plus some killer new numbers – all produced to funky perfection, with just the right sort of balance between the rough and the tight. Titles include her great version of "Think", a funky sample cut that never gets old – plus the cuts "Things Got To Get Better", "Women's Lib", "Never Gonna Give You Up", "Just Won't Do Right", "Wheels Of Life", and the funkiest version ever of "Fly Me To The Moon".

New Albert CollinsLove Can Be Found Anywhere/Trash Talkin' ... CD
Imperial/Collectables, 1968/1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
Nice stuff from Albert Collins! We're not normally fans of blues – especially much of the revivalist blues of the late 60s – but Collins' records for Imperial have a nice funky touch that holds up well over the years. They're not really funk in the same sense as many of Collins' contemporaries in the soul scene of the time – but they do have some great funky elements, especially in the drums and guitar, which is always razor-sharp. This CD brings together two Collins' sides from the late 60s – both just about impossible to find on vinyl. Tracks include "Jawing", "Trash Talkin", "Turnin On", "Pushin", "Stump Poker", "Do The Cissy", and "Doin My Thing". 24 cuts in all! CD

Benny CarterFurther Definitions (plus Additions To Further Definitions) ... CD
Impulse, 1961. Used ... $8.99
A key later album from alto saxophonist Benny Carter – one that has him at the helm of a largeish group, but playing with a nicely focused sort of groove! In addition to Benny's alto, the record also features tenor sax from Charlie Rouse and Coleman Hawkins, plus one more alto from Phil Woods – supported by rhythm from John Collins on guitar, Dick Katz on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Jo Jones on drums. The tunes are traditional, but have some sharper-edged modern ideas on some of the solos – and there's a nicely echoey feel to the production, which further adds to the quality of the record. The album's a bit like a Swingville session for Prestige, but has a bit more going on – and titles include "Doozy", "Blue Star", "Midnight Sun Will Never Set", and "Crazy Rhythm". CD also features a full bonus album – the record Additions To Further Definitions! CD

Mel Torme, Francis Faye, Johnny Hartman, & OthersComplete George Gershwin Porgy & Bess ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1957. Used 2CD ... $18.99
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! 2CD set fetaures 67 tracks in all – the complete recording of this special work, even with the narration too!

New Dizzy GillespieDizzy On the French Riviera ... CD
Philips/Verve, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
It may have been recorded on the French Riviera – but the session's actually a killer batch of Latiny tinged tracks from Dizzy & Co – with with great arrangements by Lalo Schifrin! There's a wonderful 10 minute version of "Chega De Saudade", done as "No More Blues" to start it out, and it's got a great loping Latin vibe, in the manner of Dizzy's best sides from the 60s. Lalo's on piano, and the great Leo Wright is on flute and alto, with Tzigane Elek Bacsik on guitar, Chris White on bass, Ruby Collins on drums and Pepitoo Riestria on percussion. Other nice ones include "Long Long Summer", "Desafinado", and "Pau De Arara". A great album, and one not to pass up! CD

New VariousGet Your Lie Straight – A Galaxy Of Funky Soul ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An absolute funky monster! This set lays out an incredible batch of funk era singles from the vaults of Galaxy Records – and it shakes and burns all the way through, with lost funk bombs Bobby Rush, Rodger Collins, Bill Coday, Bobby Eaton, the Debonairs and others! It's comprised of mostly obscure 45s representing the stone funkiest records ever released by the Oakland-based Galaxy label – which was at this point sort of serving as the farm club for big brother label Fantasy Records. This one's essential, kids – just as worthy of your funk-loving dollar as the legendary rare funk compilations on Jazzman, Soul Fire or Stones Throw! 22 tracks in all: "Foxy Girls In Oakland", "Get Your Lie Straight", "Chicken Heads" by Bobby Rush, "Bring It On Up" by Loleatta Holloway, "I Love Her Too" by Lenny Williams, "People Say" by JJ Malone, "Try The Life" by Everyday People, "Man Power" (previously unreleased) by Ben & Larry, "My Money Is Funny" by the Right Kind, "The Iron Horse" by Merl Saunders & Heavy Turbulence, "I Get What I Want" by the Sequins and lots more!

New VariousOther Side Of Bakersfield Vol 1 – 50s & 60s Boppers & Rockers From Nashville West ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare sounds from the west coast hub of country music – a surprisingly rich legacy of early rockabilly from the Bakersfield scene! The package is a treasure trove of tunes we've never heard before – and stands as a nice alternate to better-known work on labels like Chess, RCA, and King – with a rich array of under-discovered tracks that were originally issued on Capitol, Liberty, Decca, and many other small labels at the time! The notes are as great as the music – a really thoughtful, historical presentation of the music – along with loads of photos and label scans – almost a mini version of the bigger Bear Family box sets – with 31 tracks that include "Untied" by Tommy Collins, "Don't Go Baby" by Al Coker, "Hot Dog" by Corky Jones, "Daddy Loves Mommyo" by Tommy Duncan, "Go Crazy Man" by Bill Woods, "We're Gonna Bop" by Alvadean Coker, "I Used To Love You" by Bill Carter, "Monkey Bite" by Al Hendrix, "I Used To Love You" by Bill Carter, "Seal Rock" by Ernie Kelly, and "Stood Up Blues" by Custer Bottoms.

New Bootsy's Rubber BandAhh...The Name Is Bootsy, Baby! ... CD
Warner, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

New VariousGreat Lost Elektra Singles Vol 1 ... CD
Elektra/Collectors Choice, 1960s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A very cool little compilation – one that features some gems that were only issued on Elektra Records as singles during the 60s – tracks that never saw any sort of LP release! There's some great goodies here – including rare Byrds material, issued under the name of The Beefeaters – on cuts "Please Let Me Love You" and "Don't Be Long". Phil Ochs turns in a weird electric rock version of "I Ain't Marching Anymore", Judy Collins sings Dylan's "I'll Keep It With Mine", David Ackles sings "La Route A Chicago", Eclection does "Mark Time", and the pre-Blue Oyster Cult Stalk/Forrest Group sings "Arthur Comics" and "What Is Quicksand".
