✨✧ Lyn CollinsMama Feelgood – The Best Of Lyn Collins ... CD
People/Universal (UK), Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing funk from one of the greatest deep soul singers of the 70s – the legendary Lyn Collins, heard here on a 20 track set of tunes all produced by James Brown! James worked with a number of female vocalists in the 60s and 70s – but Collins was arguably the strongest, and the one with the biggest potential for challenging the ranks of better-charted female vocalists at the time. She's got a totally kicking way of putting over a tune – one that's steeped in gospel and southern soul traditions, but lean and clean enough to bristle alongside the tightness of the grooves she was getting on record from the JBs! In fact, most of the tracks on the set crackle like the best funk tunes from early 70s James Brown or JBs – and the collection goes out of its way to bring together the hardest-hitting tunes by Lyn from these years – getting past some of the slower album tracks to go for some key rare singles! Titles include "Wheel Of Life", "Mama Feelgood", "Baby Don't Do It", "Don't Make Me Over", "I'll Never Let You Break My Heart Again", "Rock Me Again & Again & Again", "How Long Can I Keep It Up", "Ain't No Sunshine", "What My Baby Needs Now Is A Little More Lovin", "Never Gonna Give You Up", "Do Your Thing", "Take Me Just As I Am", "Think (About It)", "You Can't Love Me If You Don't Respect Me", and "Put It On The Line".

✨✧ Collins & CollinsCollins & Collins ... CD
A&M (Japan), 1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
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".

Benny CarterFurther Definitions ... CD
Impulse, 1961. Used ... $3.99
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

Dizzy GillespieDizzy For President ... CD
Douglas (France), 1963. Used ... $2.99
Dizzy Gillespie caught live at Monterey – recorded with a great group during one of our favorite stretches in his career! The combo's kind of a post-Lalo Schifrin quintet, but still shares plenty of the bossa-inspired elements of his tenure with Diz – long tracks, bits of Latin rhythms, and a hip swing that's just right for the 60s! James Moody's in the group on alto, flute, and tenor, Kenny Barron plays piano, Chris White is on bass, and Rudy Collins is on drums – and Jon Hendricks joins the group on vocals for one cut too! Titles include "Morning Of The Carnival", "Dizzy Atmosphere", "Vote Dizzy", "Desafinado", "No More Blues", and "The Cup Bearers". 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

Herbie MannHerbie Mann At The Village Gate ... CD
Atlantic, 1962. Used ... $4.99
Herbie Mann's at the Village Gate – really wailing away in a set of extended numbers that not only set a whole new standard for live recording in jazz, but which also pushed forward the role of the flute in the music as well! There's a heck of a lot of soul in the grooves here – served up by a totally cooking rhythm section that includes basses from Ben Tucker and Ahmed Abdul-Malik, percussion from Chief Bey and Ray Mantilla, and drums from Rudy Collins – plus some especially great work on vibes from Haygood Hardy, sounding beautifully chromatic underneath Herbie's sharp-edged work on flute! The set features a key reading of "Comin Home Baby" that runs for over 8 minutes long – plus great long versions of "Summertime" and "It Ain't Necessarily So". CD

Charlie ShaversComplete Charlie Shavers With Maxine Sullivan ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1954. Used ... $9.99
An unusual slice of work by trumpeter Charlie Shavers – proof of his vitality and the range of his powers during the 50s! The first 4 tracks feature Shavers in a sextet with Hank D'Amico, Bennie Morton, Ken Kersey, Aaron Bell and Panama Francis, and some narration by Al Jazzbo Collins! Collins provides some hipster speak that sets that stage for a variety of older tunes featuring Shavers on solo. The set list includes "Dark Eyes", "Dawn On The Desert", "Story Of The Jazz Trumpet", and "Moten Swing" – all done in pretty cool, swinging versions. Side 2 of the LP features Shavers leading another sextet in front of the John Kirby Orchestra with vocalist Maxine Sullivan alongside too, and all of which include Buster Bailey on clarinet, Russell Procope on alto, and Billy Kyle on piano – on tunes that include "Windy", "Rose Room", "If I Had A Ribbon Row", "Flow Gently Sweet Rhythm", and "Molly Malone".

Snoop DoggR & G (Rhythm & Gangsta) – The Masterpiece ... CD
Geffen/Doggy Style, 2004. Used ... $0.99
Snoop brings Doggy Style over to Geffen – also the latest home of the Neptunes' Star Trak, Snoop's partners for this better-than-usual LP! Snoop has the seniority these days to pick-and-choose whomever the hell he wants to produce and contribute to his records regardless of the present hotness of those contributors – bringing in Alchemist, Lil Jon, 50 Cent, Hi Tek, and others. The best tracks seem to be the Neptune productions, with that glittery minimalist electro sound and the digital handclaps that meld perfectly with Snoop's hazy delivery. The single "Drop It Like It's Hot" is another shiny gem on par with "From The Chuuuch. . ." and "Beautiful" – we can't stop spinnin' it here, anyway! Snoop's on a real high (artistically, that is) lately, and mainstream street hop is all the better for it! Other tracks include "Bang Out", "Can I Get A Flicc Witchu" feat Bootsy Collins, "The Bidness", "Let's Get Blown", "Step Yo Game Up" with Lil Jon, "Oh No" with 50 Cent, "Pass It Pass It" and more.

VariousGet Your Lie Straight – A Galaxy Of Funky Soul ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $9.99
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!

VariousJames Brown's Funky Divas ... CD
Polygram, 1960s/1970s. Used 2CD ... $14.99
Totally cool compilation that brings together a huge amount of hard to find sides that feature some of the great female soul singers that have worked with James Brown over the years. The set's divided into 2 discs – one for the 60's, and one for the 70's – and includes a huge amount of stuff we almost never see, by singers like Anna King, Bea Ford, Yvonne Fair, Tammy Montgomery (Tammi Terrell), Vicki Anderson, Marva Whitney, Shirley Jean, Kay Robinson, and of course, Lyn Collins. And don't worry about already having most of this stuff, because there's a huge amount of tracks on here that you probably don't have. Plus, there's a good set of notes, with lots of details, and a whopping total of 46 cuts in all! CD

VariousKings Of Funk – Compiled By RZA & Keb Darge ... CD
BBE/Rapster (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
It's hard to get any funkier than this – and with Keb Darge and RZA making the call, we'd expect nothing less! RZA gets one disc, Keb the other – and the difference between the taste of the two makes for a really expansive collection – one that's got a few familiar bits that we'd almost forgotten about, next to some harder to find numbers that we're plenty happy to have in a format like this! And leave it to BBE to keep the standards high for packaging and recording quality – serving up a whopping 20 tracks in all, with titles that include "Is It Because I'm Black" by Ken Boothe, "From The Love Side" by Hank Ballard, "Party Time" by Brand New, "The MG Beat" by Mighty Generation, "Will You Love My Child" by Anna Raye, "You Can Make The Change" by Madcliff, "Simple Song" by Zebra, "Genuine" by Sharon Jones, "Family Affair 1973" by MFSB, "Don't Joke With A Hungry Man" by Quantic with Spanky Wilson, "Getting Off On Your Loving" by Sking High, "I Can Deal With That" by Dee Edwards, "Do Your Thing" by Lyn Collins, "Stone Small Talk" by Sly & The Family Stone, "Climax" by Ohio Players, and "Ain't No Sunshine" by Harlem Underground.

✨✧ King CrimsonRed ... CD
EG/Caroline (UK), 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the heaviest early King Crimson albums – a set that really has the group taking off even more than before – pushing the needles way into the red with their own sort of sonic intensity! The group's a trio this time around – with the legendary Robert Fripp on guitar, really carving out the sound with an edge that's incredibly sharp – plus the great John Wetton on vocals and bass, giving the group an unexpected sense of soul – and lots of mighty drums from Bill Bruford too! Additional instrumentation comes from some cats who really help round out the more complicated edges of the Crimson sound – David Cross on violin, Mel Collins on soprano sax, Marc Charig on cornet, and Ian McDonald on soprano sax. Tracks are all nice and long – and titles include "Starless", "Providence", "One More Red Nightmare", and "Red". CD

✨✧ Paul Quinichette, Buck Clayton, Nat Pierce, et alBasie Reunion ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
The title tells the tale on this one – as the session's a studio meeting of players all associated with Count Basie over the years – captured here in a style that's much more laidback and relaxed than the usual Basie set! The album's got the feel of some of Prestige's best work in the Swingville series, but also has an approach that's almost in the blowing session mode – with long tracks on the album that really let each player step out in their own voice. The lineup includes Paul Quinichette on tenor, Buck Clayton and Shad Collins on trumpet, Jack Washington on baritone sax, Nat Pierce on piano, Freddie Greene on guitar, and Jo Jones on drums – and titles include "Blues I Love To Hear", "Love Jumped Out", "John's Idea", and "Baby Don't Tell On Me".

✨✧ Dennis CoffeyDennis Coffey ... CD
Strut (UK), 2011. Used ... Out Of Stock
The return of Detroit funk and soul guitar legend Dennis Coffey – and it's not only a welcome one, it's great – a record that finds Dennis at an exuberant, funky high point! On this self-titled set, he's joined by adventurous creative spirits who he's inspired over the years, including Kings Go Forth, Fanny Franklin of Orgone, Mayor Hawthorne, Paolo Nutini and members of The Detroit Cobras, The Bellrays and The Dirtbombs. It's not only a testament to Coffey's genius that such a diverse roster of guests are happy to pitch in here, it's a statement to his far reaching style that it all works so well. From his roots with Motown house band The Funk Brothers to his wild solo work and breakbeat funk staples, he's a timeless master of soul, funk, rock and the confluence of all the above. His influence is as apparant as ever well into a new millenium, so it's a real treat to have him back and in such vital form. Includes the knockout instros "7th Galaxy", "Plutonius", "Knockabout", "Space Traveller" "Miss Millie" with Kings Go Forth and "Don't Knock My Love (Pt 2)" – plus Don't Knock My Love" feat Fanny Franklin, "All Your Goodies Are Gone" feat Mayer Hawthorne, "Only Good For Conversation" feat Paolo Nutini, "I Bet You" with Mick Collins of The Dirtbombs and Rachel Magy of Detroit Cobras and more.
