Philly CreamGroovin ... CD CD format
Society Hill/Essential, 2014. New Copy ... $14.99
The wonderful return of Philly Cream – a group who made some great records at the end of the 70s, and who seem like they haven't missed a beat at all! The style here is really in the old school Philly harmony mode – maybe the modern soul variant, with some slight contemporary touches in the instrumentation – but an overall feel that has all the vocals coming together wonderfully! Old group member Art Austin is working here with younger female singers Simone Talley and Adrienne Aje – and the record has plenty of musical support from Ingram, with Butch Ingram at the production helm – in a similar mode to the other great recent sides on Society Hill. Titles include "Somebody Told Me", "A Beautiful Morning", "Crystal Blue Persuasion", "Slow Down", "Cowboys To Girls", and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For". CD

Two tracks from "Only Built For Cuban Linx", still one of the best Wu-associated LPs. Production from RZA at the height of his skills. "Ice Cream", the song that inspired all those 'ice cream flavor' t-shirts, features Ghost Face, Method Man, and Cappadonna (then known as Cappacino) and is one of the funnier hip hop 'love songs' in a while.

Rubber BandCream Songbook ... LP LP format
GRT, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99
One of the great "songbook" albums by the Rubber Band – and a very different set than their better-known Hendrix record! As you'd guess by the title, this session has the group taking on Cream – performing instrumental versions of some of the group's most groove-heavy tunes, but doing so in a way that avoids the risk of falling short of Eric Clapton's guitar work – by just not using much guitar at all! Instead, the versions of the tunes are funkily baroque – still with heavy Ginger Baker-styled drums on the bottom, but often using strings and woodwinds in weird ways to carry the rest of the tune. The approach is almost like some of the best Brit Easy records from the time – with a full orchestral sound thinned into a tight rock funk groove! The set's got an especially great version of "Strange Brew", with organ that sounds like it could be played by Alan Hawkshaw – plus the tracks "White Room", "Deserted Cities Of The Heart", "Toad", "We're Going Wrong", "Those Were The Days", "Sunshine Of Your Love", and "Sweet Wine".

Tony Joe WhiteComplete Warner Brothers Recordings (Tony Joe White/Train I'm On/Homemade Ice Cream/singles) ... CD CD format
Warner/Real Gone, Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $28.99 29.98
A trio of tremendous albums from the legendary Tony Joe White – packaged here with bonus singles too! First up is Tony Joe White's terrific self-titled set for Warner in '71 – his swamp rock mastery in full swing by this point, and all the cooler on a record that finds hip working with some occasional horns and lush bits of strings! There was really no finessing the grit out of the Tony Joe show, so the occasional sweeter touches to the production really does make the groove tastier and more soulful. Titles include "They Caught The Devil And Put Him In Jail In Eudora, Arkansas", "My Kind Of Woman", "Black Panther Swamps", "I Just Walked Away", "Voodoo Village" and more. Train I'm On has Tony Joe White working at Muscle Shoals – a great southern combination, and one that makes for one of White's most unique albums! There's a bit grit in the rhythms, and a bit more of that well-rounded Muscle Shoals soul – as Tony works primarily on acoustic guitar, on tunes that get some slight sweetening from Arif Mardin a times, but in a way that never dims his soul at all. White's great vocals still drive the whole show along – with that strong current of soul that made him a surprisingly big crossover act at the time – and titles include "Sidewalk Hobo", "The Migrant", "As The Crow Flies", "300 Pounds Of Hongry", "Beouf River Road", and "If I Ever Saw A Good Thing". Homemade Ice Cream is the last Warner Brother album by Tony Joe White, and a set that mixes the raw feel of his Monument Records years with these great laidback numbers that have a surprising amount of soul, and a nice undercurrent of funk! White's a powerhouse here – completely confident, but also able to relax into a groove even more than before – and the album's got some surprisingly sensitive acoustic guitar work that seems to show a whole new side of his charms. Titles include "Saturday Night In Oak Grove Louisiana", "California On My Mind", "Backwoods Preacher Man", "No News Is Good News", and "Did Somebody Make A Fool Out Of You". Package also features six non-LP singles – "Delta Love", "Lustful Earl & The Married Woman", "That On The Road Look", "Sign Of The Lion", "Don't Let The Door Hit You In The Butt", and "Wishful Thinking".

Music Mecca (Denmark), 1970s. Used ... $16.99
An excellent compilation that should do for the under documented Danish scene of the 70s what the Glucklich compilations did for the German one! The set digs through a mess of rare wax that we've never seen before, locating some wonderful tracks from Denmark – 16 tasty tracks that all have a Braziliany groove to them, most with a sweet little 70s electric sound that makes the work even better. The set's as great as any work coming out of Brazil at the time – and it also reminds us of some of the excellent fusion work on MPS from the early 70s. Titles include "Misturada" by Finn Savery Trio, "Singing Spring" by Tinto Mara, "O A Le" by Christian Sievert Kvartet, "Tribute To Brazil" by Jens Winther Quintet, "Sambad" by Birgit Lystager, "Parlor Do Brazil" by Lise Reinau, and a version of "Bim Bom" done by Tania Maria and Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen! Great stuff, and a wonderful slice of lost music! CD

Overlooked greatness from the late 60s years of The Supremes! Cream Of The Crop may not have been a huge hit for The Supremes, but the record has the group handling a variety of interesting work – mostly done in modes that bring the best Motown styles of the 60s into closer contact with the label's more expansive sound to come in the 70s! There's a really nice balance here, handled by a cream of the crop set of arrangers that includes Wade Marcus, David Van DePitte, and Paul Riser – on titles that include "Someday We'll Be Together", "You Gave Me Love", "Can't You See It's Me", "Young Folks", "The Beginning Of The End", "Till Johnny Comes", and "Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever".

Bionic BoogieHot Butterfly (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Polydor/FTG, 1978. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
A dancefloor classic! The album's the second by Gregg Diamond's Bionic Boogie, and head and shoulders above the rest – a sublime blend of soul and club that's hardly been matched again! Diamond manages to make things groove, but never loses sight of the soulful styles that make the record so great – and works here with key contributions from a young Luther Vandross, who gives the album some of the same strong vocal arrangements he brought to his own first two albums on Atlantic! Luther sings lead on the album's legendary track "Hot Butterfly", and works in a group with Cissy Houston on other tracks – sweetly soaring with vocals that go far beyond most disco efforts of the time. Simply sublime, and with classics that include "Hot Butterfly", "Paradise", "Cream (Always Rises To The Top)", "Chains", and "When The Sh*t Hits The Fan (Rocket Pocket)". Includes 4 bonus cuts too – "Hot Butterfly (Jim Burgess disco rmx)", "Chains (Gregg Diamond spectacular rmx)", "Fess Up To The Boogie (Gregg Diamond disco rmx)", and "Chains (Jim Burgess disco rmx)".

New Jack BruceThings We Like ... LP LP format
Atco, 1968. Very Good ... $34.99
Quite possibly the best of the solo albums by ex-Cream bassist Jack Bruce – recorded immediately after the breakup of the band, with a great jazz-based lineup that includes John McLaughlin on guitar, Dick Heckstall-Smith on reeds, and Jon Hiseman on drums. The set's totally instrumental – and the choppy reed work of Heckstall-Smith is the strongest asset of the album, as he virtually sets the tone for a whole generation of European funky honkers to come for the next 10 years. Bruce's bass work is great too – and really pushes the album into some great moments, a few of which actually get a bit funky! Titles include "Over The Cliff", "Statues", "Sam's Sack", "Rill's Thrills", "Hckhh Blues", "Ballad For Arthur", and "Things We Like". LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny CrissJazz In Paris – Mr Blues Pour Flirter ... CD CD format
Universal (France), 1963. New Copy ... $11.99
Some of the rarest work ever by Sonny Criss – and a key link between his LA bop sides of the mid 50s, and his Prestige comeback sides of the late 60s! The CD features tracks from a rare album that Criss cut in Paris during the early 60s, while he was living in the city and working with the cream of its jazz players. This all-star set has Criss blowing some wonderfully soulful alto in a combo that includes Georges Arvanitas on organ and piano, Rene Thomas on guitar, Pierre Michelot on bass, and Philippe Combelle on drums. The original album is one of the rarest sides we've ever found ourselves looking for over the years – and it's wonderful to have the material back out again with such great fidelity! It's wonderful to hear Criss blowing with an organ/guitar group – but even the piano tracks are pretty darn great. Titles include "Early & Later (parts 1 & 2)", "St Louis Blues", "Once In a While", "Green Dolphin Street", and "Day Dream". CD

Tyrone DavisHome Wrecker ... CD CD format
Dakar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $21.99
Tyrone Davis never seems to miss – and even on an overlooked Brunswick album like this, he still sounds better than most of his contemporaries! Davis is really able to blend both deep soul roots and more sophisticated phrasing – at a level that helped transform the sound of southern soul in the 70s! Even though Tyrone himself hailed from Chicago, he has a vibe here that clearly informs new modes from singers like George McCrae, Johnny Taylor, and many others who'd move in the same direction that Davis had been handling this well for years. Arrangement and production are by the cream of the Brunswick stable – talents that include Carl Davis, Willie Henderson, Monk Higgins, and Otis Leavill – and titles include the great cut "Homewreckers", written by Sam Dees and Tyrone – plus "Was I Just A Fool", "How Could I Forget You", "It Aint' Me No More", "This Time", and "After All This Time".

Eric DolphyIron Man ... LP LP format
Douglas/Celluloid, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A seminal set from Eric Dolphy – one of his most perfectly realized moments at the head of a larger ensemble – and a record that definitely set the tone for countless spiritual jazz sessions of the 70s! Dolphy recorded this session for Alan Douglas in 1962, and it features a larger array of players than you'll find on most of his records for other labels – the cream of the "new thing" players that were around New York at the time, including Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Woody Shaw on trumpet, Prince Lasha on flute, Sonny Simmons on alto, and even Clifford Jordan on soprano sax – making a rare appearance on record on that instrument! Together, the players create a set of soundscapes that lies somewhere between Dolphy's Out To Lunch album, and some of the more modernist work by Mingus – a stunning batch of tracks that go out, but never too far. Titles include "Ode to CP", "Burning Spear", "Iron Man", and "Mandrake". LP, Vinyl record album

CTI, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
Killer CTI work from Joe Farrell – with grooves so sharp you could cut your trousers on them! Farrell's angular reed style is in perfect form here – grooving with a small group that includes Herbie Hancock on piano, Joe Beck on guitar, Steve Gadd on drums, and Don Alias on percussion – a combo that's got a harder, tighter feel than most CTI groups – a key reason why Joe's records of this time are so legendary! The album features a fantastic version of Stevie Wonder's "Too High" – one that breaks all over the beginning with these riffs by Farrell, then grooves into a CTI electric funk mode for about 13 minutes. All tracks are long – and other tracks include "Hurricane Jane", "Geo Blue", "Penny Arcade", and "Cloud Cream". LP, Vinyl record album

MPS/Edel (Germany), 1969. New Copy ... $44.99
Very cool, very groovy, and one of Ella Fitzgerald's hippest albums of the 60s! The set was recorded in San Francisco in the late 60s, but was issued by MPS in Germany as proof that the label always had an ear for bringing something different out of a mainstream artist. And although live, the album's got a romping, hard grooving style that's filled with plenty of soul – arranged surprisingly by Tommy Flanagan, with a bouncing, bottom-end groove that even gets a bit funky at times! The centerpiece of the album is Ella's funky cover of the title cut – Cream's big hit "Sunshine Of Your Love" – proof that even an old gal can get funky with the right material! Other tracks include "This Girl's In Love With You", "Watch What Happens", "House Is Not A Home", and "Hey Jude". LP, Vinyl record album

A really great little set – featuring 3 styles of work by Brit pop legend Tony Hatch! One disc features Hatch doing instrumental work from the 60s – lively renditions of instrumentals and covers, including a few numbers that have gone onto be loungecore classics – tracks like "Soul Coaxing", "Beautiful In The Rain", "Music To Watch Girls By", "Wives & Lovers", "Bedazzled", "Light My Fire", "Birds", "Love Is Blue", "Forget Him", "I Know A Place", and "Crosstown Commuter". Next up is a disc that includes pop hits written or arranged by Tony for other artists – some of the cream of British pop in the 60s! Tracks on that disc include "Downtown", "Call Me", "Don't Sleep In The Subway", and "I Couldn't Live Without You" by Petula Clark; "Lonely Without You" by Julie Grant; "Sugar & Spice" by The Searchers; "Trinity Street" by Two Of Each; "Messing About On The River" by Josh Macrae; "The Two Of Us" by Tony Hatch & Jackie Trent; "Major To Minor" by The Settlers; and "You've Gotta Be Loved" by The Montanas. Last up is the most exciting – a whole disc of TV themes from the 60s and 70s – a genre that Hatch was great at, and really handled well! Tunes on that disc include "Sportsnight", "Ben Casey", "Emmerdale Farm", "Perry Mason", "Crossroads", "The Champion", "Man Alive", "Theme From Who Dun It", "Ghost Squad", "The Naked City", and "Mr & Mrs". 60 tracks, 3CDs – what a deal!

A funky party all the way through – and the one and only album we've ever seen from Johnny Otis main tenor player in the 60s! The set's got a vibe that's much funkier than some of Johnny's own records of previous years – and really shows that looser, more open style he was bringing to his ensemble at the time – and in addition to Preston's tenor, the set's also got work by a young Shuggie Otis – who's really wailing with some trippy licks on guitar! The overall feel is very much in the funky 45 mode – and most cuts are instrumentals, occasionally with a bluesy twist – and one number – "Cool Ade" – has a hip call-response vocal that's mighty nice! Other titles are equally sweet – and include "Hoe Cakes & Sorghum", "Cream Dream", "Neck Bones", "Chili Mac", and "Pot Likker". LP, Vinyl record album

Quartet (Spain), 1990. New Copy ... $16.99
A really dark little soundtrack from Henry Mancini – way different than the groovier work of his early years, and dripping with all the creepy suspense you might guess from the title! The orchestrations are often full, but usually have these really deep, dark sonic bits in the mix – low-end sounds that are really amazing, and which create this turgid quality that really offsets any slight sense of melody in the mix. Plus, a few cuts have some excellent electronics – almost used more in a 70s horror mode than you'd guess from the date – which gives the whole thing a surprisingly timeless feel. CD features loads of cuts from the film, plus some extra cues too – and titles include "Ice Cream Truck", "Contact", "His First Call", "Jack's Tune", "Mr Fear Goes Down", "Casey's Theme", and "Trespasser".

The group's harmonies are excellent, a bit rough in the best parts – ala Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes during the Teddy Pendergrass years – but also capable of tremendous strength when forged together, which happens often on the album's tight set of Philly-produced tracks. Bobby Martin arranged the material, and backing is by the cream of Sigma Sound – a perfect backdrop for gems like "Don't Take Your Love From Me", "That's How Much I Love You", "Summertime In The City", "Strange Old World", and "I Don't Want To Pay The Price Of Losing You". CD features two bonus tracks – "Don't Take Your Love From Me (single)" and "Summertime In The City (single)". CD

Epic, 1972. Used ... $4.99
A massive crossover from Johnny Nash – a record that gave the 70s the chart-topping title hit, and which helped Johnny mix his Caribbean roots with contemporary soul! The set's a huge change from the sometimes-faltering styles Nash had tried in the 60s – often a bit more mainstream than he was able to do well, which is why the deeply personal approach of this album's such a striking contrast. Nash arranged and produced himself, and really hits a vibe here that stands out even from his other 70s recordings – beautifully balanced, on titles that include "Comma Comma", "Guava Jelly", "Stir It Up", "I Can See Clearly Now", "We're All Alike", "How Good It Is", "Cream Puff", and "You Poured Sugar On Me".

Johnny NashTears On My Pillow ... CD CD format
Columbia/RPM (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $8.99
A great mix of the Caribbean roots of Johnny Nash and some of the sweeter soul sounds of the US scene in the 70s – recorded both at Sigma Sound in Philly, and back down in Jamaica! Nash has some great help on the set – most famously from Bob Marley, who contributed a few original songs to the record – but also from Philly soul producer Bunny Sigler, who arranged some of the album along with Norman Harris and Ronnie Baker! As you might guess, we're biggest fans of these Philly tracks – and they show that Nash's vocals can really sound great in a smoother, more contemporary setting – but the Bob Marley numbers are pretty good too, and are more soul than the reggae you might expect. Other guests include Hugh Masekela on trumpet and Vince Montana on vibes – and titles include "Why Did You Do It", "The Edge Of Love", "Tears On My Pillow", "Reggae's On Broadway", "Mellow Mood", "Let's Be Friends", "Cream Puff", "Say It Ain't True", and "Rock It Baby".

Ngozi FamilyDay Of Judgement ... CD CD format
Now Again, 1976. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
Some of the heaviest work to come from the African scene of the 70s – the initial offering of the Ngozi Family – a group who clearly take strong inspiration from the Cream years of the UK scene, but who also come across with a grittier, punkier vibe overall – thanks to lean, stripped-down instrumentation and some very sharp drums! The drums rattle out underneath the magnificent fuzzy guitar lines in the lead – almost with this compressed quality that recalls Thin Lizzy at their funkier moments – but much more raw, stripped-down, and unpolished – so that the English language lyrics burst out with a really biting sound! The record's one of the first in the Zamrock tradition, and is still one of the best – a set that deserves to be in any collection of hard rock, proto-punk, and even funk rock from the 70s. Titles include "I Wanna Know", "Day Of Judgement", "We Wonna Give It To Her", "Tikondane", and "Let Me Know". CD comes in a great book-style cover – and features the bonus tracks "We Were Not Told", "She Looks So Crazy", "I've Been Looking For You", and "Sunka Mulamu". CD

Fantastic work from Eddie Palmieri – right up there with his best of the 70s, and filled with the kind of tunes you'd buy one of his best records for! The set was recorded live in Puerto Rico in 1971, and is a mix of the late Latin Soul styles that were heard on the Sing Sing albums, with some of the more extended jazzy grooving of Eddie's years at Coco. Eddie plays both electric and acoustic piano, and the electric sounds nice and sweet – kind of jagged and bracing, over long rhythms with timbales by Nicky Marrero, trumpet by Afredo Chocolate Armenteros, soprano sax by Ronnie Cuber, and organ by Charlie Palmieri. Ismael Quintana sings vocals, but the real grooves are the instrumental ones – and titles include "The Mod Scene", "Muneca", "Vamanos Pal Monte", "Pa Huele", "La Malanga", "La Libertad Logico", and "Chocolate Ice Cream".

Peter & GordonIn London For Tea ... LP LP format
Capitol, 1967. Very Good- ... $6.99
Groovy 60s Brit pop from the team of Peter Asher and Gordon Waller – two cats who have a way of drawing on the harmonies of the Merseybeat generation, then sending the tunes home with a bit more individual charm! Most tracks here are hits from other artists – both British and American – but the pair really add their own approach that makes the music mighty nice – a style that sometimes echoes the approach of Chad & Jeremy, but also reaches for some of the soul of the Righteous Brothers too. Arrangements are usually simple and not that gimmicky – leaving lots of room for the vocals to take the lead – but there's also a nice sense of bounce that keeps things playful throughout. Titles include "Sunday For Tea", "The Jokers", "I'm Your Puppet", "Red Cream & Velvet", and "Stop Look & Listen" – plus the excellent "London At Night". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing. Cover has wide clear tape on the bottom seam, a peeled strip on front, and a small sticker on back.)

Peter & GordonIn London For Tea (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Capitol (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $22.99
Groovy 60s Brit pop from the team of Peter Asher and Gordon Waller – two cats who have a way of drawing on the harmonies of the Merseybeat generation, then sending the tunes home with a bit more individual charm! Most tracks here are hits from other artists – both British and American – but the pair really add their own approach that makes the music mighty nice – a style that sometimes echoes the approach of Chad & Jeremy, but also reaches for some of the soul of the Righteous Brothers too. Arrangements are usually simple and not that gimmicky – leaving lots of room for the vocals to take the lead – but there's also a nice sense of bounce that keeps things playful throughout. Titles include "Sunday For Tea", "The Jokers", "I'm Your Puppet", "Red Cream & Velvet", and "Stop Look & Listen" – plus the excellent "London At Night". CD features the full album in mono and stereo, plus bonus tracks by Gordon Waller – including "Little Nonie", "Speak For Me", and "Rosecrans Blvd". CD

Wilson PickettHey Jude (180 gram pressing) ... LP LP format
Atlantic/4 Men With Beards, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 22.98
Wilson Pickett at Fame Studios – an unbeatable mix that yields up one of his greatest albums ever! All the best elements of Pickett's strength at Atlantic Records are firmly in place here – hard, raw vocals at the front, supported by funky accompaniment from Fame Studios regulars, plus a bit of vocals from The Sweet Inspirations – all tied together by near-perfect production from the legendary Rick Hall! But best of all, the tracks here are all winners through and through – mostly penned by the cream of the crop of southern-tinged soulsters of the time – including George Jackson, Bobby Womack, Raymond Moore, and the team of Isaac Hayes & David Porter. Of course, Lennon & McCartney contributed the title track "Hey Jude" – which Wilson redoes here with the same soulful inflection that Ike & Tina were bringing to some of the 60s rock cannon at the end of the decade – and other titles include "Save Me", "My Own Style Of Loving", "Toe Hold", "People Make The World", "A Man & A Half", and "Sit Down & Talk This Over".

Bama LamasGoing Up? (with download) ... LP LP format
Bama Lamas, 2014. New Copy ... $7.99
Rowdy, vintage R&B-fueled rockers from The Bama Lamas – a contemporary Chicago band with a retro sound, akin to late 50s though mid 60s ragers from The Burnette Brothers to Screamin' Jay Hawkins and lots in between – and they make it sound fresh and vital! A couple of the Bama Lamas also serve as band members for the legendary Andre Williams, if you need any more evidence to their authenticity – and the tracks include "Tell Ya Once", "(Do) The Hurt", "Sugar Snap", "Sambuca", "(Do) The Crab", "Hunger", "Goin' Out", "Hungry Teenage Wolfman", "Monkey Bump", "Ghost Of The Voodoo King", "No More" and more. Recorded in mono – glorious mono! LP, Vinyl record album
