Philip BaileyChinese Wall ... CD
Columbia, 1984. Used ... $8.99
A big breakthrough for Philip Bailey – and a record that was kind of a second-level explosion for the Earth Wind & Fire sound in the 80s! There's a definite crossover feel to the record – a style that takes Bailey's soulful vocals, and mixes them with lots of catchy hooks – in ways that push the Kalimba aesthetic even more into mainstream modes. Yet the album's still got some solid soul grounding, too – thanks to arrangements by Tom Tom and Arif Mardin – which is a nice contrast to the production by Phil Collins, who also guests on the hit "Easy Lover". Other cuts include "Time Is A Woman", "Go", "Walking On The Chinese Wall", "Photogenic Memory", "I Go Crazy", and "Children Of The Ghetto". CD

✨✧ Chain ReactionIndebted To You (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Gull/Vocalion (UK), 1977. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Sweet British harmony soul from this overlooked 70s group – a really wonderful record that continues some of the best mellow group styles of the earlier part of the decade! Dave Collins – of Dave & Ansel Collins fame – is a member of the trio – but the sound here is more in keeping with the best New Jersey group modes than any of his earlier hits – a wonderfully fragile mode that has the voices hanging in air, coming together in sublime late night harmony sounds! A few numbers get slightly more uptempo, but the record's a pretty ballad-heavy one overall – and tracks include "Indebted To You", "Never Lose Never Win", "Why Can't We Be Lovers?", "Think I'll Leave This Song Just Like It Is", "Hogtied", "Chase A Miracle", and "Cold Steel". 2 bonus tracks on this CD version: "This Eternal Flame" from a 1976 single, and the previously unreleased "Make It".

Columbia, 1988. Used ... $3.99
Herbie's still in electro-grooving mode here – not groundbreaking as earlier records, but still handled by Bill Laswell, and with a tackhead groove pretty firmly in place. The tracks are a bit more complicated than before, with vocals by Sugarfoot, and bass by Bootsy Collins. Titles include "Vibe Alive", "Perfect Machine", "Chemical Residue", "Beat Wise", and "Maiden Voyage/P Bop". CD

Rick JamesStreet Songs/Throwin' Down ... CD
Gordy, 1981. Used ... $19.99
One of the all-time great Rick James albums – a return to funkier sounds for Rick that worked both artistically and comercially – and actually got over far better than his more blantant attempts at crossover hits both earlier and later than this classic set! Indeed, the record that put a lot of money in Barry Gordy's pockets in the early 80s, and features the super-huge funk pop tune "Super Freak" – plus "Give It To Me Baby", "Ghetto Life", "Make Love To Me", "Below The Funk (Pass The J)", and "Fire & Desire" – all done in that compressed pop-funky style that James kind of took from Bootsy Collins and manage to successfully soup it up for the masses!

Jethro TullBenefit ... CD
Chrysalis/Capitol, 1970. Used ... $4.99
An early gem from Jethro Tull – and a set that has the group really reaching forth with some of their more complicated, jazz-based musical impulses – while still holding onto some of the rawer power of the early days too! The album's lesser-known than some of the group's earlier hits – which may well make it even fresher all these many years later – a really stunning set of sounds that showcases the newly lyrical sensibility of Ian Anderson – both vocally and on flute – as well as the searing guitar of Martin Barre, which was really becoming a core element of the group at this point. Titles include "For Michael Collins Jefferey & Me", "Inside", "Play In Time", "Sossity You're A Woman", "With You There To Help Me", and "Nothing To Say". CD

James Moody with Kenny BarronFly Me To The Moon (Comin' On Strong/Another Bag) ... CD
Cadet/Lonehill (Spain), 1962/1963. Used ... $11.99
Two tremendous early 60s sessions from James Moody – both recorded for Argo Records, and both featuring a young Kenny Barron on piano! First up is Comin On Strong – a prime Argo gem from James Moody – and key proof that when he wanted to, he could be one of the hippest cats working in 60s jazz! The approach here is subtle, but amazing – a blend of hardbop with some of the more modern ideas that were coming up in the post-bop generation from the team of Moody and Dizzy Gillespie. The rhythms are quite complicated at times – very fresh and vibrant, but without any of the easy gimmicks that other 60s artists would fall into – like vamping soul jazz or borrowed bossa lines. Instead, working in a combo with a young Kenny Barron, Moody concentrates on fresh timings and complicated changes – modes that push his own work on alto, tenor, and flute far from expected territory – and which also features Barron on piano and organ, George Eskridge on guitar, Chris White on bass, and Rudy Collins on drums. Tracks include "Zanzibar", "Dizzy", "Ole", "Sonnymoon For Two", and a nice version of "Fly Me To The Moon". Another Bag is hip, angular, post-bop material from James Moody – the kind of album that made him one of the key soul jazz innovators of the 60s! The session's one of Moody's excellent outings with arranger Tom McIntosh – a young talent who helped re-shape Moody's musical vision with his deeply colorful arrangements – penned here for a smallish group, but still breaking out with deeper tones than Moody had ever expressed before on record! Tunes are a wonderful mix of modal, soul jazz, and more introspective tunes – played by James on both flute and tenor, alongside hip players that include Kenny Barron on piano, Paul Serrano on trumpet, Marshall Thompson on drums, Ernest Outlaw on bass, and John Avant on trombone. Titles include some excellent McIntosh originals – like "The Cup Bearers", "The Day After", "Minuet In G", and "Ally" – plus equally-fresh tunes "Spastic" and "Pleyel D'Jaime". CD

VariousAge Of Worry – From Country Pop To Freak Folk – The Space Age Relics Of Monument Records 1960 to 1970 ... CD
Monument/Omni (Australia), 1960s. Used ... $12.99
Fantastic sounds from one of the most troubled decades in modern American history – a moment so rocky, its changes and politics even touched the world of country music! While you might think of country as being just a flag-waving, gun-toting version of society, these rare gems show a completely different world – served up by thoughtful, topical tunes that are maybe a more mid-center version of the themes that were more popularly taken up by folk music or hippies at the time! The work is almost all from obscure 45rpm offerings by Monument Records – a very interesting company in the 60s, one that was always a bit off to the left of the Nashville mainstream, and more than willing to take chances – especially with unusual material like this. Some tracks are by older artists, getting hip to the times – but many more are by talents that managed to serve up a few great songs, then slide off the scene for good – leaving us just these tasty relics to remember them by. Omni brought the same great presentation to the package as their Hillbillies In Hell series – on a set of 28 titles that include "Mac The Merchant" by Durwood Haddock, "Age Of Worry" by Billy Walker, "Apology At Bedtime" by Jim Mann, "Code Alarm 7" by Vern Stovall, "Outcast" by Larry Collins, "Permanent Wave" by Orville Couch, "The Night Miss Nancy Ann's Hotel For Single Girls Burned Down" by Tex Williams, "Love Thy Neighbor" by Carl Vaughn, "Every Man Has A Prison" by Rusty Draper, "What Of Tomorrow" by Arthur B Hancock, "Tale Of A Wooden War" by Kenny Jones, "Left Wing Birds" by The Charades, and "A Gun Don't Make A Man" by Capt Ty Herrington.

✨✧ Frank FosterManhattan Fever (Blue Note) (with previously unreleased album) ... CD
Blue Note, 1968/1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lean, righteous blowing from the legendary Frank Foster – one of a handful of extremely hip sessions he cut in the 60s under his own name! The album's the only record Foster ever did for Blue Note – and we dare say it's even better than his previous 60s work on Prestige and Impulse – with a quality that's even darker, even deeper, even more advanced from his earlier years with Basie. There's a rolling, joyous groove to many numbers – that late 60s take on soul jazz that made for so many great tracks on albums by Hank Mobley or Lee Morgan near the end of the decade. Foster keeps things tight, but he's also got an expansive vision too – an edge in the horns that points the way towards some of the chances he'd take in the 70s, but which is still wrapped around a leanly leaping soul jazz groove! Foster wrote 5 of the 6 tracks on the album, and he's working here with a sextet that includes Garnett Brown on trombone, Marvin Stamm on trumpet, and Richard Wyands on piano, who brings in some offbeat notes and colors throughout. Rhythm is by the excellent team of Bob Cranshaw on bass and Mickey Roker on drums – and titles include "Seventh Avenue Bill", "Stammpede", "Little Miss No Nose", "Manhattan Fever", and "Loneliness". Added to the core album is a full bonus album – recorded by Foster nearly a year after the first, and even more far-reaching! There's a quality to the date that mixes together Frank's previous soulful vamping with some more introspective, more lyrical moments – almost modern at times, but not entirely so – and played by a septet that includes Ed Pazant on alto and flute, Burt Collins on trumpet, George Cables on piano, and Jimmy Cleveland on trombone. Foster himself plays a bit of alto clarinet alongside his usual tenor – and titles include "Fly By Night", "Slug's Bag", "What's New From The Monster Mill", and "Hip Shakin". CD

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

Mastercuts (UK), 1970s/1980s/1990s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
For a long time, the Mastercuts series has issued jazz-funk, soul and club essentials – and they're now putting out excellent club oriented comps, and even covering the pre and after sets! And like their great Early Hours set, this before the club mix serves up a nice cocktail of tight soul, smooth club tracks, modern beats and even a few nice hip hop numbers! It's a good thing most bars don't play sets this hip, or we'd never make it to the club! 26 tracks in all, including Blackstreet's "No Diggity", Curtis Mayfield's "Pusherman", Masters At Work with Roy Ayers "Our Time Is Coming", Rhythm Is Rhythm "Strings Of Life", Grandmaster Flash "The Adventures Of Grandmaster Flash On The Wheels Of Steel", Blondie "Rapture", Lyn Collins "Mr Big Stuff", Herbie Hancock "The Essence (Joe Clausell Sacred Opus mix)", Shaun Escoffery "Days Liek This (DJ Spinna & Ticklah mix)", Mantronix "King Of The Beats", Gangstarr "Take A Rest" and Maceo & The Macks "Cross The Tracks".

✨✧ VariousMaxfield Avenue Breakdown – Channel One Dubs & Instrumentals 1974 to 79 ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pressure Sounds does it again! This collection documents instrumentals and dubs cut at Channel One, run by the Hookim brothers, which was one of the centerpieces of the Jamaican music industry throughout the 70s. Countless classic sides were cut there, with the blueprint for the influential Rockers rhythm laid out by the most important rhythm section in reggae at the time, and probably one of the most significant in the history of recorded music: Sly & Robbie. The cover of this compilation is actually a remake of the "Vital Dub" LP by the Revolutionaries, Sly & Robbie's band of the time, who lay down the tracks here, with keys by Osse Hibbert & Ansel Collins and horns by the great Tommy McCook & Vin Gordon. 16 smokin Rockers grooves, including "Ragnampaiza Version", "Woman Is Like A Shadow Version", "CB 200 Version", "Ballistic Affair Version", "School Days Version" and "Fire Bun Version".

✨✧ Marvin GayeHere, My Dear (expanded 2CD edition) ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, 1978. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful stuff – and one of our favorite-ever Marvin Gaye albums! This is the legendary two-record set that Marvin wrote and recorded as an alimony payment to his ex-wife Anna Gordy (the story's pretty long, and we won't get into it here – suffice it to say that when stars get a divorce, watch out!) Although the album was thought of as a no-brainer quickie at the time – and predicted to fail so that Anna wouldn't get any cash from it – the record is an extremely well-crafted one, filled with extremely personal songs that also have a warm soulful finish, in the style of Marvin's work on the LP I Want You (which is kind of a nice bookend to this one – as it was an extended love poem to the young girlfriend that caused him to split up with Anna!) Hard and soulful, the record's a searing testimony to the relationship between Marvin and Anna, and a painful document of the troubles between them – set to some mellow grooves that are easily some of Marvin's greatest of the 70s! The set's filled with great "lost" Marvin Gay songs, too – like "Sparrow", "When Did You Stop Loving Me", "Anger", "You Can Leave, But It's Going To Cost You", and "Time to Get it Together". Expanded CD features the famous 12" instrumental version of "A Funky Space Reincarnation" – plus a full set of 12 bonus alternate mixes produced by the likes of Mocean Worker, Easy Mo Bee, Leon Ware, Marcus Miller, Prince Paul, Bootsy Collins, Slaam Remi, and The Randy Watson Experience – including "Anger (alt extended)", "Here My Dear (alt mix)", "Time To Get It Together (alt extended mix)", "Falling In Love Again (alt version)", "I Met A Little Girl (alt version)", "Sparrow (alt version)", and "Anna's Song (inst – alt version)".

Pablo/OJC, 1983. Used ... Out Of Stock
Jackson, Johnson, Brown, and company – and a few more too – a nicely laidback sextet date from the later years of Pablo Records, done in the great mode that always made the label's work a 70s extension of the Verve Records ethos! Key players here, obviously, are Milt Jackson on vibes, JJ Johnson on trombone, and Ray Brown on bass – Brown also produced the set – and the group also features John Collins on guitar, Tom Rainer on piano, and Roy McCurdy on drums. Tracks are shorter and tighter than a jam session mode for three such heavy players – and titles include "Jaybone", "Lament", "Our Delight", "Bag's Groove", "Watch What Happens", and "The Jumpin Blues".
