AalonCream City ... LP
Arista, 1977. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Sweet modern soul with a sound that would get picked up on years later by the LA G-Funk scene. The album's produced by War's Far Out production team – and it's got a smooth sound that's mixed with moogy keyboards and compressed instrumentation on the best cuts. Some tracks are a bit too funky, but the mellow ones are very tasty. Includes the excellent track "Summer Love", plus "Cream City", "Magic Night", "Lonely Princess", and "Jungle Desire". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

The final recording from the good Captian and his last crew, and one of our favorites. Sideways rhythms collide with arthritic guitar parts in a remarkable gumbo topped off by Don Van Vliet's unique lyrical vision. A modern classic! Includes "Ice Cream For Crow", "Semi Multi Coloured Caucasian", "Hey Garland, I Dig Your Tweed Coat", "The Past Sure Is Tense", "The Witch Doctor Life" and "81 Poop Hatch". LP, Vinyl record album

Cream De Coco (aka Creme D'Cocoa)Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle/Disco Strut ... 12-inch
Free Spirit/Salsoul, 1976. Very Good ... $29.99
Funky club from Creme D'Cocoa, spelled differently on the label of this single for some reason –perhaps because it's one of their earlier singles done for a side-label at Salsoul, and featuring a great mix of disco and ensemble funk! "Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle" has a midtempo groove that's as catchy as the title – done with lyrics from the entire group and a bouncy boogie styled rhythm! "Disco Strut" is even better, though – a smoother, almost jazzier number that's years ahead of its time – picking up some slight cues from Roy Ayers, and letting female vocals glide beautifully over the spacey groove! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Salsoul sleeve.)

Philly CreamPhilly Cream ... LP
WMOT/Fantasy, 1979. Very Good ... $2.99
A sweet batch of Philly grooving – very much in the mode of Philly International work from a few years earlier, kind of carrying the torch of disco Philly, once Gamble & Huff turned towards some mellower modern material. The group features many members of the Ingram Family, as well as Michael Pedicin Jr on sax – and vocals are handled by David Simmons, Len Barry, and Damon Harris. Titles include "Soul Man", "Join The Army", "Sly Hi", "Motown Review", and a version of "Doin It To Death" LP, Vinyl record album

Loud/Get On Down, 1995. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $9.99 12.98
Two tracks from Only Built For Cuban Linx – a standout early Wu Tang solo effort and a record that stands to this day still one of the best Wu-associated LP ever!. Production from RZA at the height of his skills. "Ice Cream" , features Ghost Face, Method Man, and Cappadonna and is one of the funnier hip hop "love songs" of the period – "I love you like I love my d*** size"?! "Incarcerated Scarfaces" is the more serious minded flip. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Motown, 1969. Very Good+ ... $5.99
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".

Classic! The third LP from the Time, and last before Morris Day went off and started his solo career – though by this point Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis had departed the group. Nonetheless, the sound is still tight modern funk, with Jesse Johnson and crew keeping things in the great post-Prince Minneapolis pop-funk sound, including some nice dance numbers like "Jungle Love" and "The Bird" – and Morris just being Morris on cuts like "My Drawers", "Chili Sauce" and "If The Kid Can't Make You Come".

A&M, 1965. Used ... Out Of Stock
Trumpety magic from Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – a record that's known not only for its classic cover of a model dipped in whipped cream, but also for it's tremendously groovy groove! The Tijuana sound is very firmly in place by the time of this set – Mexican-inspired, but compressed down into a sweet little LA groove in that magical A&M way – never too over the top, done in a way that takes a previously-hokey brassy sound, and smoothes it out for the Now Sound generation! Titles include the hit single "Whipped Cream", plus "Taste Of Honey", "Green Peppers", "Bittersweet Samba", "Lemon Tree", "Ladyfingers", and "Butterball". LP, Vinyl record album

Ginger BakerGinger Baker & Friends – Eleven Sides Of Baker ... LP
Sire, 1977. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A much more rock-based album than some of Baker's other post-Cream work – but still with some nice grooves that appeal plenty to our ears! The weaker tracks on the album are sort of in a quirky rock mode – but the better ones feature some snapping percussion from Baker and the group, and some nice Afro-styled touches that recall the best Air Force sounds. Titles include "Pampero", "N'Kon Kini N'Kon N'Kon", "Don Dorango", "High Life", and "Don't Stop The Carnival". LP, Vinyl record album

Ginger Baker's Air ForceGinger Baker's Air Force ... LP
Atco, 1970. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
Out of the wreckage of Cream came some very hip grooves! Ginger Baker was the hippest of the group's 3 members – and although he's often credited by soul fans for his work with Fela, he should also get hats off for his work with the group Air Force. At its base, the group's in the jazz rock mode – with players that include Brit jazz luminaires Phil Seamen, Harold McNair, and Graham Bond, plus rockers like Baker, Steve Winwood, Denny Laine, and Rick Grech. The tracks are all long groovers in a post-beat group mode – and the best tracks have a jamming sound that's pretty over the top. Titles include "Da Da Man", "Aiko Biaye", "Do What You Like", "Doin It", and "Don't Care". LP, Vinyl record album

John BakerVendetta Tapes – Incidental Music From The 1960s BBC TV Series & Other Radiophonics ... CD
Buried Treasure (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
Sublime sound cues from BBC maestro John Baker – a wonderful blend of jazzy moments and weird electronic sounds – often used together at the same time! The feel here is as hip as the hippest Brit TV of the 60s – some very righteous grooves that would have made great records on their own – mixed with moodier moments that blend together all sorts of forward-thinking elements, at a level that was hardly being done on American TV at the time – easy shifts between timings and tones that keep the whole thing moving with an incredible degree of freshness throughout – with a sound that's way way different than any sort of other television work we can think of. Some tracks have improvised tenor or flute passages, often while other weird electric bits are taking place – and there's also lots of nice work on drums and percussion, which further gives the electronics a direction! Titles include tracks from Vendetta episodes "The Sugar Man", "The Dolly Man", "Suivez La Piste", "The Widow Man", "The Caves Of Steel", and "The Ice Cream Man". CD

Blues ImageOpen ... LP
Atco, 1970. Very Good+ ... $12.99
Driving stuff from Blues Image – the fairly short-lived, Latin-tinged 60s stoner rockers that are scarcely remembered but for the lone big hit "Ride Captain Ride", one of the finest rock singles of the era. That tune, with it's mellow mid tempo organ groove and big catchy chorus is a bit uncharacteristic of the group's overall sound. Blues Image as a whole is much more indebted to Cream – with really heavy riffing and tight propulsive drums and percussion that make them a nicely dirgy answer to others in the sunshine scene. Hazy rock fans of today can have their Queens Of The Stone Age, and all the rest. We'll take the real thing. Thanks again, Sundazed, for rescuing a long lost, worthy slab of 60s rock! "Love Is The Answer", "Running The Water", "Clean Love", "La Bamba", "Consuelate", "Ride Captain Ride", "Pay My Dues" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Terry CallierTotal Recall (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Mr Bongo (Japan), 2003. Used ... $11.99
The genius of Terry Callier – remixed! One of the greatest things to happen to Chicago soul legend Callier in recent years was his discovery by a host of cutting edge producers and DJs on the European scene – important talents who took his work to a whole new audience, by fusing Terry's original grooves with some more ambitious rhythmic progressions, keyboard lines, and other studio touches. And while you might fear that such knob-twiddling would muddy the waters and dampen Callier's spirit, such was not the case – as work in this vein only seemed to inspire Terry further, to stretch out his wings and reach new musical horizons. The tracks on this set offer a number of recent Callier recordings, remixed by the cream of the current UK and European scene – all as proof of how great this format is when applied to Callier's work. Titles include "Monuments Of Mars (Hopper mix)", "Running Around (Fug city mix)", "Sierra Leone (Block 16 mix)", "Darker Than A Shadow (Mitchell & Dewbury mix)", "Imagine A Nation (Funky Lowlives mix)", and "Just My Imagination (Tom Findlay & Keeling Lee mix)".

Blue Note, 1954. Near Mint- (reissue)... $14.99
One of the most obscure 50s releases from Blue Note Records – part of a pair of 10" albums recorded on the west coast – which was quite a change from the label's usual east coast home! The album's originally came with no full artist information, and were released as a "blindfold test" under the supervision of Leonard Feather – in which the listener was supposed to guess the players! The musicians on the original record were not named – probably because of contractual reasons – but artists include the cream of the LA scene of the time – Conte Candoli on trumpet Jimmy Giuffree and Charlie Mariano on reeds, Howard Roberts on guitar, and Marty Paich on piano – all coming together with a fresh, clean sound that's more like the classic 50s sessions on the Mode or Bethelehm labels instead of Blue Note. Titles on volume 1 include "Santa Anita", "Culver City", "Santa Monica", and "Blindfold Test No 1". LP, Vinyl record album

Reprise (UK), 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $29.99
Pretty strange grooves from Family – their trippy amalgam of harder edged, forceful hippie rock and wispy acoustic elements! A Song For Me displays a bug-eyed feverish intensity in fits and starts – both rhythmically and with via some gravelly, warbling vocals by Roger Chapman. But it does so without stepping into the kind of testosterone laced bombast of groups like Zeppelin or Cream and myriad others – Family has it's own vibe – and there are plenty of more stripped down, airy bits of acoustic arrangements, harp, dobro, flute, vibes and piano. Tracks include "Drowned In Wine", "Some Poor Soul", "Love Is A Sleeper", "The Cat And The Rat", "A Song For Me" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Joe FarrellPenny Arcade ... CD
CTI/Wounded Bird, 1973. Used ... $9.99
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". CD

Paul GravettComics Art (hardcover) ... Book
Yale University Press, 2014. New Copy ... $2.99 35.00
That's a great image from cartoonist Jooste Swarte on the cover of the book – and it's a great way into the rich range of text and pictures that follows! The volume's a project from Paul Gravett – head of London's Comica festival – and it presents a number of different essays on the form, along with a huge amount of supporting artwork and images! Gravett's style is intellectual, but never dryly academic – and he's got a great way of drawing together material from decades of comics – from the Golden Age through the 60s underground, and a huge amount of contemporary material too – the sort of cream of the crop that Gravett's always supported in his work and writing. Essay topics include "Who Is Afraid Of Comics", "Silent Comics", "The Other History", "Comics In The Digital Age", and "Autobiography In Comics". Book is hardcover, full color, and 144 pages. Book

Buddy Guy & Junior WellsBuddy Guy & Junior Wells Play The Blues (expanded edition – with unreleased tracks) ... CD
Atco/Friday Music, 1972. New Copy 2CD ... $26.99 29.99
We're not normally ones to rave about electric blues albums, but this one's a lot nicer than you might think – recorded with plenty of deep soul touches, and even a dose of funk in the right places! We hate to admit it, but a big part of the credit here goes to Eric Clapton – who produced most of the record and gives Buddy and Junior a tightness that's missing from some of their other records of the time. There's almost a post-Cream sort of groove to the record – that "hipper than rock" sensibility that colored many of Clapton's old group members' projects for Atlantic in the years after Cream disbanded. But of course, Buddy Guy & Junior Wells are the real stars of the set – and the record's good enough to make even jaded Chicago residents like us appreciate their talents here! Titles include "A Poor Man's Plea", "My Baby She Left Me", "A Man Of Many Words", "I Don't Know", and "This Old Fool". 2CD set features a whopping huge batch of bonus tracks – including "Tears Tears Tears", "Checkin Up On My Baby", "Last Night", "Bad Bad Whiskey (long version)", "You're So Fine (mono rough mix)", "Stone Crazy", "Dirty Mother For You", "D Blues", and "First Time I Met The Blues".

A classic "new thing" album recorded with the cream of Blue Note's avant 60s players – like Eric Dolphy, Joe Henderson, and Tony Williams – standing out with Hill as some of the most adventurous players for the label at the time! The album's awash with jagged piano likes from Hill – supported by a modernist 3 horn frontline of Henderson, Dolphy, and Kenny Dorham – skittishly working their way into territory that's never truly free, but wonderfully expressive and exploratory – a clear summation of the sense of "modern" in modern jazz! The set features 5 excellent Andrew Hill compositions, including "New Monastery", "Flight 19", and "Spectrum", "Dedication" and "Refuge". LP, Vinyl record album

Paul HumphreySupermellow ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1972. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Not Supermellow, but super dope – one of the grooviest albums ever from drummer Paul Humphrey, and a sweet batch of laidback electric funky jazz cuts! Paul's working here with a bit more keyboards and guitar than before – all nicely compressed into the grooves that are directed by his tight work on drums – often stepping around in a really badass mode that we totally love, and which moves past a simple approach to funky rhythms. Humphrey clearly knows that he's got to complicate things a bit more than usual to keep the ears of the increasingly sophisticated 70s listener – by going for hipper changes and timings, while still keeping the tight core funky groove intact. He's helped strongly in his efforts here by players who include Joe Sample, Wilton Felder, and Arthur Adams – all playing in a more laidback, less studio mode than on other sets – and even the arranger Nick Decaro manages to play some groovy accordion on a few tracks! Titles include "Boo A Cha", "Macho", "Do The Buzzard", "Hot Ice Cream", and "Got It Together". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny NashTears On My Pillow ... CD
Columbia/RPM (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $8.99 13.99
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 ... LP
Now Again, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.98
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Sister SledgeCircle Of Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD

A sweet early album from Sister Sledge – a great transformation of an earlier girl soul sound into a fuller, more mature disco mode for the 70s – all served up with a freshness that's quite appealing if you only know their later hits! Production is by Tony Silvester and Bert De Coteaux – and the style is very much in the Philly mode of the time (even though the album was recorded in New York) – a full sound on the more upbeat numbers, but a warm and gentle approach on the mellower numbers – especially some of the great harmony tracks that really stand out in the set! Most titles were co-written by Gwen Guthrie and Patric Grant – but the album also includes tunes by Patrick Adams and Thom Bell & Linda Creed too. Titles include "Circle Of Love", "Give In To Love", "Cross My Heart", "Love Don't You Go Through No Changes On Me", "Don't You Miss Him Now", "Pain Reliever", and "Fireman". CD features a stunning 10 bonus tracks too – including "Cream Of The Crop", "Have Love Will Travel", "Neither One Of Us", "The Weatherman", "Have You Met My Friend", "Love Has Found Me", "Love Ain't Easy", "Thank You For Today", and "Mama Never Told Me (Tom Moulton mix)".

The original Animals vibe is opened up a bit more with some heavier sounds that reflect the change of moves at the time – but overall, the tracks are mostly shortish and respectful to the roots that inspired the group – in a way that helps bring together music from a range of different sources. Titles include versions of Fred Neil's "Other Side Of Life", Zappa's "All Night Long", Sam Cooke's "Shake", Donovan's "Hey Gyp", and Ray Charles' "Hit The Road Jack" – plus "Smoke Stack Lightning", "Rock Me Baby", "Outcast", "Louisiana Blues", and "Going Down Slow".

Eddie Cano & His QuintetBrought Back Live From PJ's ... LP
Dunhill, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Stunning stuff – and one of the best-ever Latin soul albums of all time! Despite the fact that Eddie Cano's earlier albums are more in a Latin easy mode, this late 60's side for Dunhill is totally smoking – and probably his greatest album ever! Forgive the superlatives, but we're totally serious on this one – as the set's a firey batch of Latin instrumentals, with a slammin' boogaloo groove all the way through – filled with mad percussion, jazzy piano riffs, and a non-stop groove that's totally great. The set was recorded live at PJ's nightclub, and it's a non-stop Latin Soul party that includes massive originals like "Slip Slip", "Brown & Blue", "Miro Como Es", and "Don't Ever Change" – plus smoking covers of "El Pito" and "Louie Louie". The set screams with excitement, and is as great as the album is rare! LP, Vinyl record album

A seminal set from Cheap Trick – a group who had already cut some excellent studio albums before this one, but who somehow finally reached huge fame in the mainstream with this classic concert release! The album is one of the greatest, most iconic live rock records of its era – in which the to that point under-appreciated Cheap Trick (in the US at least – as you can hear the wild screams, they had the love elsewhere) midwestern powerpop progenitors FINALLY broke through and cemented their legend!

The album is one of the greatest, most iconic live rock records of its era – in which the to that point under-appreciated Cheap Trick (in the US at least – as you can hear the wild screams, they had the love elsewhere) midwestern powerpop progenitors FINALLY broke through and cemented their legend! As great as the original live album was (and still is), it always felt truncated, and it was – until this long-waited complete concert was released! Most of the greatest cuts from the first few albums are represented, including "Come On, Come On", "I Want You To Want Me" (of course!), "Big Eyes", "ELO Kiddies", "Need Your Love", "High Roller", "Auf Wiedersehen", "California Man", "Surrender" and more.

Bill CosbyHooray For The Salvation Army Band! ... LP
Warner, 1968. Very Good ... $3.99
An early funk album by Bill Cosby – with backing by the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band! Bill was pals with Charles Wright and crew in the hip LA of the late 60s, and he was also responsible for bringing the group to Warner Brothers – so the fit here is quite a natural one. The record was also produced by Fred Smith – who handled the Watts Band's albums – and it's got a very similar feel to their classics for Warner from the late 60s – but with Bill Cosby stepping out in front on vocals, in a similar style to Charles Wright. Cosby's singing is often a bit goofy, but works beautifully with the stoned to the bone feel of the group – a madder match than even Charles Wright, especially on the album's "parody soul" cuts. Titles include a classic break version of "Get Out Of My Life, Woman" – plus the titles "Ursalena", "Funky North Philadelphia", "Sunny", and a surprisingly great screaming version of "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band". LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny CrissI'll Catch The Sun ... LP
Prestige, 1969. Very Good ... $11.99
Excellent material from Sonny Criss' late 60's comeback period! By this point, Criss had a sound, style, and maturity that was unmatched by any of his LA contemporaries – a way of blowing the alto that was neither boppish, nor cliched in R&B modes – and instead burst forth with a sense of soulful sophistication that was quite unique! Sonny's sound here is incredible throughout – a clear, clean approach to his instrument that is quite different than his style of a few years before – and he's set up in a great little combo that includes Hampton Hawes on piano, Monty Budwig on bass, and Shelly Mann on drums. Titles include the killer "California Screamin" – plus "I'll Catch The Sun", "Blue Sunset", "Cry Me A River", and "Don't Rain On My Parade". LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Lockjaw Davis Big BandStolen Moments (aka Trane Whistle) ... LP
Prestige, 1960/1970. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Don't pass this one up – even though this set is a 1970s repackaging of the album originally entitled Trane Whistle. Although lots of other albums by Eddie Lockjaw Davis are laidback quartet and quintet sessions, this one's got a stunning big band backing him up, and the sound is incredible. The leadoff track, "Trane Whistle", has Lockjaw screaming in a way that you thought you'd never hear, and playing with tones that are a lot darker than usual. The set moves on from there in a nice batch of material that includes "Whole Nelson" and "Stolen Moments", two fantastic originals by Oliver Nelson, who arranged the album. Both cuts are great, and show a whole new side of Lockjaw that might make you sit up and realize what a great player he is. Dolphy's in the band, and so are Richard Williams, Melba Liston, and Roy Haynes. Great stuff! LP, Vinyl record album

Durutti ColumnLive At The Venue (180 gram pressing – with bonus CD) ... LP
Durutti (UK), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
An early live performance from Durutti Column – which on this occasional features just the vocals and guitar of Vini Reilly, and light drums from percussionist Bruce Mitchell! Mitchell's careful touch on the kit is key to the warmth of the set – as he's often using brushes, and most likely just a few drums – which gives the rhythmic element of the performance a lot more warmth than the drum machine that Vini used on other records, and the same sort of quiet, personal approach that resonates beautifully with the vocals and guitar. There's clearly some sort of processing in Reilly's performance – that echo you'll hear on some of the Factory studio sessions – but the quality is different, too – and maybe more open-handed and direct, which we really love. Titles include "The Missing Boy", "Mother From Spain", "Jacqueline", "Self Portrait", "Friends In Belgium", "Sigh Becomes A Scream", and "Sketch For Summer". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes bonus CD of the entire album!)

EsqueritaEsquerita! ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $14.99
Standout early work from the mighty Esquerita – an artist you might initially write off as a Little Richard copycat, but one who also delivers a whole lot more in the end! The groove here is rough R&B, inflected with a touch of early soul – and the piano lines are worth the price of admission, played at a level that goes back to early New Orleans roots, but with more 50s bluesy currents – often alongside some tenor and guitar that rival the best instrumentation you'd find on indie singles at the time from King and Atlantic – quite a surprise for the normally-pop Capitol Records. And the vocals are something else, too – certainly with a soaring, screaming range – but also just wonderful when they're more down to earth, and in the groove. Titles include "Hey, Miss Lucy", "Why Did It Take You So Long", "She Left Me Cryin'", "Get Back Baby", "I Need You", "Maybe Baby", and "I'm Battie Over Hattie". CD

✨✧ Macy GrayTrouble With Being Myself ... CD
Epic, 2003. Used ... $4.99
Macy's follow up to The Id, which was a wonderful and underappreciated record, and it's nearly as nice! Trouble With Being Myself sort of combines the paths she took on the previous two albums for a really nice mix of material. "When I See You", "She Ain't Right For You", "My Fondest Childhood Memories" and other tracks kind of carry on the smoother, more mannered style of her breakthrough first album, and other tracks like the fine "It Ain't The Money" with Pharoahe Monch, "Screamin'" and others carry on with the grittier, deeper style of The Id. A strong album overall, one that should have kept Macy on the shortlist of relavent pop artists for a long time to come – but sadly fell through the cracks! Other tracks include "Things That Made Me Change", "Jesus For A Day", "She Don't Write Songs About You", and "Speechless". CD

GroupiesGroupies ... LP
Earth, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $43.99
Fantastic LP of "authentic" interviews with "real live groupies" from the late 60's. Theoretically an expose, this is more of a loose conversation with the girls drinking their way through a chat about the different positions that their lifestyle puts them in. We're not sure if it's real, but it is produced by Alan Lorber, who was sort of an authentico, and it is pretty great, even if it's not the real thing. The back cover also includes a "groupie glossary", with definitions to phrases like "wank off", "plaster caster", and "creamies". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hall & OatesWar Babies ... CD
Atlantic, 1974. Used ... $9.99
Hip Hall & Oates material from the early days – a set produced by Todd Rundgren, with a sound that definitely shows his presence! The tunes here are really wonderfully focused – tightened up a bit more than before, but never in ways that are too-poppy or commercial. Rundgren's great ear for a hook is really at play here – emphasizing the best elements of the tunes, in ways that keep them slinkily soulful, with almost a Steely Dan sort of sensibility. Instrumentation is pretty basic and bare – another great aspect of the record – and Rundgren also joins in a bit on guitar. Titles include "70s Scenario", "War Baby Son Of Zorro", "Can't Stop The Music", "Is It A Star", "Beanie G & The Rose Tattoo", "I'm Watching You", "Better Watch Your Back", and "Screaming Through December".

A beautiful early European issue of material from the legendary Screamin Jay Hawkins – a special 10" record that was issued in France in the 50s, where it was clear that Screamin Jay was off to a mighty strong start! The set includes a number of Hawkins' excellent, offbeat tunes from his 50s years – those mad tunes that are part R&B, part voodoo, and part madman – served up in that unique style that nobody else could match! Titles include the classic "I Put A Spell On You", plus "You Made Me Love You", "Alligator Wine", "Little Demon", "Hong Kong", "Frenzy", "Person To Person", "There's Something Wrong With You", and "Take Me Back To My Boots & Saddle".

Screamin' Jay HawkinsI Put A Spell On You ... LP
Versatile, 1977. Sealed ... $49.99
By all rights, this should be a throwaway album. Screamin Jay does a so-so remake of "I Put A Spell On You", some weak versions of pop tunes like "I've Got You Under My Skin", "Ebb Tide", and "Time After Time", and a bluesy instrumental called "Sweet Ginny". However, the whole album's completely redeemed by a great little number that's in an Afro Funk mode! The cut is called "Africa Gone Funky", and it's got rolling drums, a pounding beat, and a groove that would be right at home in any set of Fela and Manu Dibango! The album also includes one other decent funky number, called "Move Me" – but the real killer is "Africa Gone Funky"!!! LP, Vinyl record album
