Sweet CreamSweet Cream & Other Delights ... LP
Shadybrook, 1978. Very Good+ ... $8.99
This one's probably best known for the cover – a disco parody of the famous Herb Albert Sweet Cream cover, one that shows an African American model covered in whipped cream like the one on the more famous A&M record jacket. Sweet Cream themselves are a hip girl trio from Detroit, featuring Gloria, Gracie, and Esther Ridgeway – who later operated under that last name as The Ridgeways on a more famous record with Gene Dozier on Capitol. And despite the fact that this one looks like a throwaway disco album, it's actually got a funky sound that's not that different from their later modern soul grooves with Dozier – a bit disco in parts, but also with a bit of a jazz fusion finish that keeps things real, and pretty interesting instrumentally. Some tracks are well-done mellow cuts, and titles include "Skunk Funk", "We're Not Gonna Make It", "You Brought Joy", and "Pretty Little Black Boy". LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassWhipped Cream & Other Delights ... LP
A&M, 1965. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
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

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".

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".

✨✧ SupremesCream Of The Crop/Let The Sunshine In ... CD
Motown, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
2 lesser-known Motown sides by The Supremes – both of them great! Let The Sunshine In is a record that has the group breaking the Motown mold a bit, and hooking up with a nice variety of modder soul and pop modes! Tracks on the set include a few Motown-penned numbers, but the trio also tackle hits like "Everyday People", "Hey Western Union Man", "Let The Music Play", and a great Hair-inspired medley of "Aquarius/Let The Sun Shine In"! But the Motown material here is almost even better – and titles include the slightly funky "No Matter What Sign You Are", which has a nice kick in the bottom – as well as "Discover Me", "The Composer", and "What Becomes Of The Brokenhearted". Cream Of The Crop may not have been a huge hit for The Supremes, but the record has them 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".

✨✧ OV WrightWe're Still Together ... LP
Hi Records/Cream, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
OV Wright's getting a bit smooth, but still sounding great – working here with really full backings from Willie Mitchell, at a level that's a bit more upbeat than his previous album at Hi Records! There's a bit more of a groove on these tunes, but most are still miles from the dancefloor – still in that time-tested OV Wright style, with echoes of earlier Memphis eras in the background, but a tighter, more mature approach upfront. Given the date of the record, the overall sound is surprising – more mid 70s Hi Records than anything else – but that's also the charm of the set, and proof that Hi could still hold strong when other labels were moving forward, perhaps a bit too quickly. Titles include "Mirror Of My Soul", "I'm Gonna Stay", "It's Cold Without Your Love", "We're Still Together", and "I Found Peace". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousMen In The Glass Booth – Groundbreaking Re-edits & Remixes By The Disco Era's Most Influential DJs (3CD set) ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
An incredible collection – and one that fills in a crucially under-documented side of the New York dancefloor generation – the wealth of special mixes and edits that were made for that city's important DJs for their own use in clubs! The package sorts through a mountain of never-issued acetates, and goes way past conventional disco or rare club collections – to showcase the special mixing talents these DJs brought to their re-presentation of the material – which was usually done on tape, then pressed onto acetate discs for their own private use! Those rare treasures are brought forth here – in a beautiful package that's also overflowing with fantastic notes that finally give this lost history its due – all handled by Al Kent – who's a hell of a mixer himself, as well as an underground club historian. 3CD set is overflowing with gems – and titles include "I Just Wanna Say I Love You (John Luongo rmx)" by Leon Collins, "What About Love (Tony Gioe rmx)" by Marboo, "Ten Percent (Walter Gibbons Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Double Exposure, "Inside America (Rick Gianatos disco queen acetate edit)" by Juggy Murray Jones, "Dancing Free (John Luongo rmx)" by Hot Ice, "Black Water Gold (Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by The Sunshine Band, "Magic Bird Of Fire (Francois Kevorkian Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "It's Good For The Soul (Jay Negron Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "My Love Is Free (Walter Gibbons disco madness rmx)" by Double Exposure, "Reaching Out For Happiness (Jonathan Fearing rmx)" by Fay Hauser, "Let Me Be Your Fantasy (Tom Savarese rmx)" by Love Symphony Orchestra, "The Beat Goes On & On (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Ripple, "I Wanna Be Near You (John Morales Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Ruby Andrews, "I've Been Looking For Somebody (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, "The Disco Scene (Rick Gianatos rmx)" by Lake Shore Drive, "Bumpsie's Whipping Cream (Tom Savarese rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, "Janice (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Skip Mahoney, "My Number's Up (Tee Scott rmx)" by The Salsoul Orchestra, "The Love Bug Done Bit Me Again (David Todd rmx)" by Skyliners, "LA Sunshine (Robert Ouimet rmx)" by Aura, "Love Has Come My Way (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Tony Valor Sound Orchestra, "Handsome Ma (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Sparkle Tuhran & Friends, "Love Thang (Tee Scott rmx)" by First Choice, "Burn Me Up (Jellybean Benitez edit)" by Kay Gees, "Love Is The Message (Tee Scott rmx)" by Brooklyn Express, "Changes (Jellybean Benitez rmx)" by Chain Reaction, "J'Ouvert (Frank Sestito rmx)" by John Gibbs & The Jam Band, "By The Way You Dance (Bobby DJ Guttadaro rmx)" by Bunny Sigler, "It's Good For The Soul (Walter Gibbons disco madness version)" by Salsoul Orchestra, and "It's A Better Than Good Time (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by Gladys Knight & The Pips.

✨✧ VariousWarner Soft Rock Nuggets Vol 4 – Listen To Me ... CD
Warner (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
There's nothing "soft" about the nuggets in this great little collection – as all the tracks here are the cream of the crop of the late 60s pop scene in the US – not super-huge hits, but instead some overlooked gems that definitely warrant the "nuggets" in the title! Most of the work here is from the Warner/Atlantic catalog – but there's also some nice bits from other labels too – and the collection focuses on the warm, breezy, completely sublime sounds that have come to be known as Sunshine Pop over the years – music that's well-produced, but very personal too – and which often has a quality that's a bit deeper than the usual oldies radio material from the time. As usual with most Japanese collections we love so much, the track selection is ultra-hip, and also includes some rare 45-only titles – with two dozen tracks in all, a good number of which we might not have heard otherwise. Titles on this fourth volume includes some nice overseas material – with the titles "A Baby's Coming" by Chris & Peter Allen, "That's Why I'm Crying" by The Ivy League, "My Little Red Book" by The Gals & Pals, "Silence Is Golden" by The Tremeloes, "Love Found A Way To My Heart" by The Sands Of Time, "Sunshine Boy" by Vicky, "She's Not Like Any Girl" by The Gibsons, "You've Got To Be Loved" by The Montanas, "Listen To Me" by The Hollies, "7:10 From Suburbia" by Jackie Trent, "The Other Side Of Love" by The Caravelles "Trinity Street" by Two Of Each, "Baby Take Me In Your Arms" by Jefferson, "On A Day Like This" by Gullivers People, "Every Day" by Danny Street, and "Move In A Little Closer Baby" by Harmony Grass.

Tyrone DavisHome Wrecker ... LP
Dakar, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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".

DynamicsLights Out ... CD
Playback, Late 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Overlooked genius from The Dynamics – a Detroit soul group of the 60s, and one who never fully got the fame they deserved, had they gotten some sort of bigger exposure on Motown! Yet that's what also makes these guys great, too – as they've got that tight sound that the Motor City could do so well at the time, but a looseness too – a more fluid approach to their music that really makes things interesting here – as the group work through some wonderful material on rare late 60s singles for the RCA and Cotillion labels, as well as an obscure 1977 final single for Columbia! The package is a much-needed look at these overlooked moments from the group – and are a great complement to their few full length albums – bracketing the years before and afterwards, with a treasure trove of group soul material. Titles included "Lights Out", "Love Me", "Ain't No Love At All", "I Want To Thank You", "Too Proud To Change", "Murder In The First Degree", "We Found Love", "You Can Make It If You Try", "Ice Cream Love", "What Would I Do", "Ain't No Sun", "I Need Your Love", "The Girl's Got Soul", "Love Sick", and "Dum De Dum".

Gianni FerrioIl Killer (180 gram pressing) ... LP
CAM/Spettro (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A definite killer from the great Gianni Ferrio – one of his grooviest soundtracks ever, and a set that's filled with lots of mod 60s touches! There's a bit of electric sitar, cool bubbling Hammond, and even some jazzy horn parts that make for nice flourishes over the top – all changing up in cool and different ways from track to track – creating the kind of instrumental variety that we love in soundtracks like these! The album features vocals on two tracks – and titles include "Strana Gente", "Mr Ice Cream Again", "Week-End On Ice", "Billy's Ice Cream", "Pedigree", "Semifreddo", "Nuovi Ricchi", and "Fino All'Ultimo Gelato".

Ella FitzgeraldSunshine Of Your Love ... LP
MPS/Prestige, 1969. Very Good ... $24.99
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

Andrew HillPoint Of Departure (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1964. Used ... $6.99
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". CD reissue also features 3 bonus alternate takes of some of these, for a total of 8 tracks in all. CD

Bobby HutchersonSolo/Quartet ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1981. Used ... $26.99
Bobby Hutcherson breaks it down in two different ways – solo on the first half of the record, and in a quartet on the rest! The set begins in a very spare way – Bobby playing vibes, marimba, xylophone, and bells – often a bit overdubbed, so that although alone, Hutcherson fills the tracks with a rich palette of sound – glowingly rhythmic lines that ring out with plenty of soul, and showcase a really under-tapped side of Bobby's talents! Remaining tracks are equally great, but in a totally different way – played by a righteous lineup that includes McCoy Tyner on piano, Herbie Lewis on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – really working together beautifully in ways that make the album feel like a lost 70s soul jazz set. Forget Hutcherson's slick look on the cover – because this album's drenched in open, honest, acoustic feeling – a rich tapestry of sound and emotion, on tracks that include "Gotcha", "The Ice Cream Man", "For You Mom & Dad", "Messina", "My Foolish Heart", and "La Alhambra".

Japanese pianist Masaru Imada is in his best fusion mode here – working with great help from American players Tom Browne on trumpet, Grover Washington Jr on soprano and tenor sax, Steve Khan on guitar, Anthony Jackson on bass, and Steve Jordan on drums! Imada plays both acoustic and electric piano, and the set has that perfect mix that happened with the best albums of this type – when a brilliant Japanese jazz musician came into contact with the cream of the crop of the American electric jazz scene – on a record that's got a strong sense of soul throughout! Things are tight, but never too slick or commercial – again that special balance that makes so many Japanese fusion projects so different than the smoother American work of the period. Titles include "Tropical Butterfly", "Jumpin Dolphin", "Seacret Sounds", "Blue Marine", "Angelfish", and "Smile For You". LP, Vinyl record album

Silver Cloud/P-Vine (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $24.99
A sweet mellow stepper from Lil Albert – a singer who first got things going in the Hawaiian group Society Of Seven – but who hits some completely different, completely great territory here! The set was recorded in mid 70s LA, with arrangement and production by Ernie Freeman – and Albert's got backing from some of the cream of that scene's studio musicians, who bring some great jazzy touches to the music! There's definitely an ear here towards an AOR approach, but the result is more like the best indie mellow soul of the period – well-produced, but never overdone – nicely understated, in a way that makes the lead vocals sound completely sublime. Titles include "My Girl Friday", "Movin In", "Daydreamin", "Outrageous", "River Of Steel", "Loose Woman", and "Roads". CD

The vocals are wonderful – sweet yet honest, and crackling with a mode that goes far beyond standard girl group conventions. Most tunes are originals from the cream of early Motown writers – William Stevenson, Norman Whitfield, and the Holland-Dozier-Holland team – and titles include "Strange I Know", "Smart Aleck", "My Daddy Knows Best", "Why Must You Go", "Too Strong To Be Strung Along", and "Silly Boy".

Philadelphia International/Robinsongs (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99
Massive work from this legendary group – a studio ensemble who started out backing some of the best soul singers on the Philly scene of the 70s – but who soon got the chance to shine in the spotlight on their own! The musicians are all the cream of the crop of the city's scene – many with legacies that go back to the 60s, with work in a variety of formats – coming together here in a lineup that's tight, but never slick – sharp, but always able to open up and groove! The music here begins with instrumental tracks from the pre-disco years – music that's a huge change from the rough style of 60s soul instrumentals – and which adds in more sophisticated charts, a bit of orchestrations, and other elements – while still letting all the best soulful elements come through in the mix. The 2CD package is overflowing with gems – and titles include "Zack's Fanfare", "Sexy", "Philadelphia Freedom", "KJEE", "Brothers & Sisters", "TSOP", "Love Is The Message", "Dance With Me Tonight (12" version)", "Let's Clean UP The Ghetto", "South Philly", "Back Stabbers", "The Zip", "Lay In Low", "My Mood", "Get Down With The Philly Sound", "Family Affair", "Manhattan Skyline", "Summertime", "Let's Party Down", "Mysteries Of The World", "MFSB", "Sunnin & Funnin", "Picnic In The Park", "Freddie's Dead", "Old San Juan", "Fortune Teller", "We Got The Time", and "Tell Me Why".

The Steve Miller Band is firmly down to a trio here – and they've never sounded better – thanks to completely kickass drums from Tim Davis, and some heavy heavy bass from Lonnie Turner – both of whom work with Miller in a style that's almost an American answer to the music of Cream from the UK! The vocals have this great way of laying down amidst the guitar, bass, and drums – and although rooted in blues, the music is so much more – especially since it's got an unbridled energy that always has the best tunes really taking off. Titles include "Baby's House", "Motherless Children", "Last Wombat In Mecca", "Your Saving Grace", "Just A Passin Fancy", and "Feel So Glad". LP, Vinyl record album

One Line BandYellow Magic ... CD
Victor (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $16.99
A great little fusion combo from the Japanese scene of the 70s – one of those unique groups that manage to hit a sound that's equally appealing from an American soul perspective too! The cream of the crop of the overseas fusion players were often leaning heavily on American R&B at the time – creating a wonderful blend, ala The Crusaders, in which jazz solos soar out from some warmer soulful grooves – which they do beautifully on this set! The track's got some wickedly tight arrangements, and lyrics that are used to spice up the tunes next to riffing guitars and sweet keyboards – never overwhelming, but blending with the jazzy instrumentation in a really great way. A few other groups of this scene had a bigger global crossover impact, but that's also what makes One Line Band such a great discovery – especially on some of the tunes that feature Japanese lyrics, instead of English. Titles include "Cold Wind", "In The Movement", "You're The Only One", and "Mr M". CD

Eddie PalmieriEddie Palmieri In Concert At The University Of Puerto Rico ... CD
Coco/MP, 1971. Used ... $18.99
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".

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".

The music of Prince lives on – in this beautiful collection that features a number of mixes that appear here on LP for the first time ever, and an unreleased track as well! The unreleased "Moonbeam Levels" may well be the prize here for longtime Prince completitsts – but the set also includes a number of never-seen photos from Herb Ritz, and marks the full length debut of "Let's Go Crazy (single edit)", "Take Me With U (single edit)", "Let's Work (single edit)", "Alphabet Street (single edit)", "Girls & Boys (single edit)", "Glam Slam (single edit)", and "Little Red Corvette (single edit)".

RoutersLet's Go/Play 1963's Great Instrumental Hits/Charge/Chuck Berry Songbook ... CD
Warner/BGO (UK), Early 60s. New Copy 2LP ... $11.99
Four classic albums from The Routers – one of those unusual 60s groups who never really existed as a real band – but whose name was used to sell some very groovy records at the time! The Routers came from the same production talents who handled The Markettes – who also made some sweet instrumental albums for Warner Brothers at the time – and like that "group", the real music here is mostly played by the cream of LA's session musicians – including Wrecking Crew heavyweights like drummer Hal Blaine, and tenor sax legend Plas Johnson. All tunes are instrumental – and some follow a surf rock mode, while others focus on a particularly strong mode that made The Routers soar – kind of a jaunty, chanting style that was particularly great for big crowds at a live event. As you might guess from the album titles here, some of the records are heavy on Router-ized covers, while others feature original material – and titles include "Let's Go", "Sting Ray", "Martian Hop", "Half Time", "Bucket Seats", "Make It Snappy", "Mashy", "Charge", "Illinois Loyalty", "Ramblin Wreck", "School Days", "Sou'wester", "Pep Rally", "Roll Over Beethoven", and "Bye By Johnny". 48 tracks in all – and complete notes on the "group"!

Snapper, Late 50s/1960s/1970s. Used 2CDs ... $13.99
A beautifully overstuffed collection of early work from New Orleans soul legend Allen Toussaint – a set that not only includes many of his key recordings from the scene in the 60s, but also some of his important productions for other artists too! The package begins with Toussaint in the lead on a series of sides on CD one – working either as himself, or as Al Touson, or with The Stones, The Rubyiats, or Allen & Allen – all with these choppy, loping, heavy-grooving rhythms that were Toussaint's huge contribution to New Orleans soul right from the start! Titles include "Whirlaway", "Whipped Cream", "Moo Moo", "Wham Tousan", "Omar Khayyam", "I Don't Need One", "Baby Do Liddle", "Tomorrow", "Fat Cat", "Banana Split", and "Java". CD2 features a series of recordings done for the Minit, Instant, and Sansu labels – all with Toussaint involved either as producer, arranger, or musician – on material that forever shaped the sound of New Orleans – titles that include "A Certain Girl" by Ernie K Doe, "Over You" by Aaron Neville, "I Like It Like That (parts 1 & 2)" by Chris Kenner, "Sophisticated Cissy" by The Meters, "Holy Cow" by Lee Dorsey, "I'm Evil Tonight" by Betty Harris, "Oogsey Moo" by Jessie Hill, "It Will Stand" by The Showmen, "Ruler Of My Heart" by Irma Thomas, "Fortune Teller" by Benny Spellman, and "Hot Tamales (parts 1 & 2)" by The Primemates. 50 tracks in all!

Spencer WigginsSpencer Wiggins – The Goldwax Years ... LP
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
Incredible work from Spencer Wiggins – a late 60s Memphis singer who travelled in the same circles as James Carr, Percy Sledge, and Otis Redding, but who hardly ever got his due – despite talents that were clearly equal to his contemporaries! This beautifully-done set brings together 14 tracks that Wiggins recorded for Goldwax Records in the late 60s – a label that was also home to Carr's best work, and who does an equally great job with Spencer's deep-burning vocals on these sides. Many of the tracks on the set were written by the cream of the crop of southern soul writers at the time – George Jackson, Quinton Claunch, Isaac Hayes, and others – and backings are often spare and subtle, really letting Wiggins' vocals take center stage! Titles include "I'm A Poor Man's Son", "Lonely Man", "Sweet Sixteen", "He's Too Old", "Anything You Do Is Alright", "I Never Loved A Woman The Way I Love You", "Old Friend", "Up Tight Good Woman", "Take Me Just As I Am", "Once In A While", "The Power of A Woman", "I'll Be True To You", and "Lover's Crime".

Atlantic/Collectables, 1957. Used ... $3.99
An odd pairing of musicians – but a classic album of piano jazz from the 50s, and some of the more obscure sides by both players! Barbara Carroll works here in a really lovely way that retains the fluidity of her 50s work on RCA, but which also has a slightly rougher edge – a mode that's got some nicely boozy undercurrents, yet still the sort of poise and grace that made Carroll one of the best female pianists of the time. Joe Shulman is on bass and Herb Wasserman is on drums – and titles include "Taking A Chance On Love", "Love Of My Life", "Autumn In New York", "Tis Autumn", and "The Lady's In Love With You". Mary Lou Williams works here in a bit of a comeback mode – some of her first American recordings in a number of years, with Carl Pruitt on bass and Bill Clark on drums. Titles inlcude "Opus Z", "S' Wonderful", "In The Purple Grotto", "From This Moment On", and "You're The Cream In My Coffee". CD

An incredible compilation of dancefloor soul & disco from the early 80s – rare, extended and previously unreleased mixes by NYC legend John Morales – featuring essential material from Logg, Universal Robot Band, Tony Adderly, Class Action, Inner Life and more! Morales was a part of the DJ remix scene that made club ready soul gems out of a bunch of the pop and soul hits of the day, but this compilation on BBE goes deeper than that for the cream of the crop of the post disco grooves of the day, most running on the long side for that unstoppable dancefloor approach, while keeping the song based soul sound fully in place. Essential! 3LP version includes 9 long tracks, with a couple versions extended and longer or otherwise alternate versions than the CD mixes, including the 17+ minute A-side opener "Ain't No Mountain High Enough Parts I & II" (JM extended 4AM mix), "Breaking Down (Sugar Samba)" (JM extended After-Session M&M mix) by Julia & Company, "Barely Breaking Even" (demo version) by Universal Robot Band, "I Ain't Mad At You" (JM extended After-Session M&M mix) by Tony Adderly, "Never Can Say Goodbye" (demo version) by La-Rita Gaskin, "Move To The Groove" (JM After-Session M&M mix) by Margie Joseph, "You Got (That Something)" (JM After-Session M&M mix) by Logg and more.

VariousListen People – The Graham Gouldman Songbook 1964 to 2005 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 19.98
Graham Gouldman may not be the biggest name in 60s pop – but he wrote some wonderfully catchy numbers that really helped bring a new level of sophistication to the Brit Invasion sound! Gouldman later hit bigger fame in the 70s with 10CC – but in the decade before, he was a wonderful songwriter who could effortlessly pen these short gems that packed a surprising amount of spirit and story in just a few minutes of lyrics – the kind of songs that always had a bit more edge and darkness than their contemporaries – as you'll hear in this great retrospective of his talents! Despite the large date range in the title, most of the work here is from the late 60s – and balanced by just a few tracks from later years – all in this wonderfully vivid portrait of a songsmith that we'd rank right up there with the bigger American or UK talents of the time. Titles include "I'm 28" by Toni Basil, "The London Look" by Herman's Hermits, "Listen People" by The Outsiders, "Tallyman" by Jeff Beck, "Evil Hearted You" by The Yardbirds, "For Your Love" by Larry Williams & Johnny Guitar Watson, "Bus Stop" by The Hollies, "Uncle Joe The Ice Cream Man" by The Mindbenders, "Have You Ever Been To Georgia" by The Peddlers, "Heart Full Of Soul" by Rush, "East West" by Morrissey, "People Passing By" by High Society, "I'm Gonna Take You There" by Dave Berry, "The Cost Of Living" by The Downliners Sect, "No Milk Today" by Graham Gouldman, "Behind The Door" by Cher, and "Look Through Any Window" by Gary Lewis & The Playboys.

An incredible collection – and one that fills in a crucially under-documented side of the New York dancefloor generation – the wealth of special mixes and edits that were made for that city's important DJs for their own use in clubs! The package sorts through a mountain of never-issued acetates, and goes way past conventional disco or rare club collections – to showcase the special mixing talents these DJs brought to their re-presentation of the material – which was usually done on tape, then pressed onto acetate discs for their own private use! Those rare treasures are brought forth here – in a beautiful package that's also overflowing with fantastic notes that finally give this lost history its due – all handled by Al Kent – who's a hell of a mixer himself, as well as an underground club historian. Vinyl part 1 features five different records, all with lots of space for the tunes to stretch out – and titles include "I Just Wanna Say I Love You (John Luongo rmx)" by Leon Collins, "What About Love (Tony Gioe rmx)" by Marboo, "Ten Percent (Walter Gibbons Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Double Exposure, "Inside America (Rick Gianatos disco queen acetate edit)" by Juggy Murray Jones, "Dancing Free (John Luongo rmx)" by Hot Ice, "Black Water Gold (Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by The Sunshine Band, "Magic Bird Of Fire (Francois Kevorkian Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "It's Good For The Soul (Jay Negron Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "My Love Is Free (Walter Gibbons disco madness rmx)" by Double Exposure, "Reaching Out For Happiness (Jonathan Fearing rmx)" by Fay Hauser, "Let Me Be Your Fantasy (Tom Savarese rmx)" by Love Symphony Orchestra, "The Beat Goes On & On (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Ripple, "I Wanna Be Near You (John Morales Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Ruby Andrews, "I've Been Looking For Somebody (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, "The Disco Scene (Rick Gianatos rmx)" by Lake Shore Drive, "Bumpsie's Whipping Cream (Tom Savarese rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, and "Janice (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Skip Mahoney.

The tracks here are all pretty rare – hence the "wants list" title – but even more than that, they're a spectacular example of the best sort of sophisticated, mature soul music that took roots in the 70s – tracks that are well put-together, but never in a slick or commercial way – and which have an approach to the groove that's nicely laidback, and quite far from both chart soul or dancefloor material. If you know the 70s work by Roy Ayers or Leroy Hutson, you'll find lots of material here in very similar territory – and titles include "These Memories" by Almeta Latimore, "Now That I Have You" by Tommy McGee, "It's So Real" by McArthur, "Trust In Me" by Natural High, "We Go Back A Ways" by The Impressions, "Black Cream" by Harold Wheeler, "Lightin Up" by Ty Karim, "You Got Your Hold On Me" by Mary Clark, "Don't Shut Me Out" by Bobby Wilson, "Deal With That (strings version)" by Dee Edwards, "If I Can't Have Your Love" by Jocelyn Brown, "A Love Of Your Own" by The Ebonys, "Let's Get Down To Business" by Pat Lundy, "I Don't Want To Leave You" by Debbie Taylor, "Give Him Up" by The Manhattans, and "I Want Sunday Back Again" by Maxine Weldon.

Warner (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
There's nothing "soft" about the nuggets in this great little collection – as all the tracks here are the cream of the crop of the late 60s pop scene in the US – not super-huge hits, but instead some overlooked gems that definitely warrant the "nuggets" in the title! Most of the work here is from the Warner/Atlantic catalog – but there's also some nice bits from other labels too – and the collection focuses on the warm, breezy, completely sublime sounds that have come to be known as Sunshine Pop over the years – music that's well-produced, but very personal too – and which often has a quality that's a bit deeper than the usual oldies radio material from the time. As usual with most Japanese collections we love so much, the track selection is ultra-hip, and also includes some rare 45-only titles – with two dozen tracks in all, a good number of which we might not have heard otherwise. Titles on this second volume include "It's A Natural Thing" by The Congregation, "No One Was There" by The Gates Of Eden, "Hung Up On Love" by The Other Voices, "Tell Someone You Love Them" by Dino Desi & Billy, "Beverly Hills" by Uncle Sound, "Many Are The Times" by Lee Mallory, "I Believe In Her" by The Tradewinds, "All" by James Darren, "Love In" by The Morning Glories, "My World Fell Down" by Sagittarius, "Happy" by Blades Of Grass, "If You Know What I Mean" by The Gas Company, "Don't Let The Rain Fall Down On Me" by The Critters, "Me Japanese Boy" by Harpers Bizarre, "Time To Love" by The Addrisi Brothers, "Don't Run Away" by Bruce & Terry, "I Could Be So Good To You" by Don & The Goodtimers, and "Will You Be Staying After Sunday" by Peppermint Rainbow.

Baker had already picked up a lot of Fela's influence in his music – and rather than the record being one in which an African artist waters down his groove for a rock world, the set's instead one in which Baker makes a surprisingly strong stand with Fela's Africa 70 group – the classic lineup that featured the great Tony Allen on drums! The sound of the set is great – well on a par with Fela's best work of the time, and perhaps even a bit better – given the extra drive that Baker brings to the session. Tracks are all long, yet a bit more focused than usual – and titles include "Ye Ye De Smell", "Black Man's Cry", and "Let's Start". LP, Vinyl record album

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". CD

You could waste your time on the 4 or 5 dozen other collections out there that are just capitalizing on Tubby's name, or stick with the cream, like this one (or one of the other sets put together by Blood & Fire that we offer). This is the real isht: thunderclap reverb drops and fat, churning bass; includes "Casanova Dub", "Corn Man", "Mr. D Brown Skank", " Rema Dub", "King Tubby's Special", "Gorgon Speaks Version", "I Trim The Barber", "Straight To Babylon Boy's Head" & "Cool Down Version".

Salsoul/Charly, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent groover from the legendary Vince Montana! Vince arranged, produced, conducted, and wrote just about all of this second album by hard-grooving Salsoul Orchestra – and the album's a no-nonsense batch of disco instrumentals that's way better than many of the fake albums of the type that sprung up in the group's wake. The players include the cream of the Sigma Studios team – including the Baker/Harris/Young triad – and the tracks have a wonderfully soulful sound, with loads of great instrumentation on guitar, bass, percussion, and Montana's jazzy vibes! Titles include "It's Good For The Soul", "Nightcrawler", "Nice N Naasty", "Salsoul 3001", "Ritzy Mambo", and "It Don't Have To Be Funky (To Be A Groove)". CD

✨✧ Cecil TaylorJumpin' Punkins ... CD
Candid/Koch, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pretty well peak era material from pianist Cecil Taylor – doing his thing with incredible line up of jazz greats on a couple NYC dates from early 1961! A couple of the pieces here are pure magic – we're especially loving the bits where Cecil is kind of hitting the keys heavily, spurring the players from a comfortable, measured gait into something a bit more feral, but it never busts wide open, creating a dynamic tension. The cream of the crop are on board, including Clark Terry, Roswell Rudd, Steve Lacy, Archie Shepp and Billy Higgins. The numbers mostly run north of 8 minutes, for a nicely loose, lingering groove, and titles include "Jumpin' Punkins", "OP", "O Forgot" and "Things Ain't What They Used To Be". CD

✨✧ WhoWho Sell Out ... LP
Decca, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible album – and one of the most revolutionary rock albums of the late 60s! The Who recorded this one as a tribute to mainstream radio at the time – linking together some solid stand alone tunes with shorter, wittier tracks that were recorded as commercials for products that included baked beans, acne cream, and deodorant – as well as cool announcer bits too! The end result is one of the most sonically complex records issued by a mainstream rock act of the time – sort of like The Who said "yeah, everyone's trying to copy Sgt Peppers with big arrangements, but we'll take this concept album thing in a whole new direction!" Brilliant all the way through, and with tracks that include "Armenia City In The Sky", "Heinz Baked Beans", "Mary Anne With The Shaky Hand", "I Can See For Miles", "I Can't Reach You", "Rale", "Sunrise", and "Silas Stingy".

Goldwax/Kent (UK), Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Incredible work from Spencer Wiggins – a late 60s Memphis singer who travelled in the same circles as James Carr, Percy Sledge, and Otis Redding, but who hardly ever got his due – despite talents that were clearly equal to his contemporaries! This beautifully-done set brings together 22 tracks that Wiggins recorded for Goldwax Records in the late 60s – a label that was also home to Carr's best work, and who does an equally great job with Spencer's deep-burning vocals on these sides. Many of the tracks on the set were written by the cream of the crop of southern soul writers at the time – George Jackson, Quinton Claunch, Isaac Hayes, and others – and backings are often spare and subtle, really letting Wiggins' vocals take center stage! CD features 20 tracks in all, plus some incredible notes – and titles include "The Kind Of Woman That's Got No Heart", "Old Friend", "Once In A While Is Better Than Never At All", "He's Too Old", "Soul City USA", "Walking Out On You", "Who's Been Warming My Oven", "I'll Be True To You", and "Anything You Do Is All Right".

The work has a tight trad jazz feel – but with a bit more space than you might find for solo expression in some of Wynn's earlier, shorter sides – and players include Bill Martin on trumpet (and a bit of vocals), Darnell Howard on clarinet, and either Blind John Davis or Bus Moten on piano. Titles include "Bourbon Street", "How Long Blues", "Ice Cream", "Nobody's Sweetheart", and "In The Evening". CD also features 2 bonus tracks "How Long Blues (alt)" and "I Ain't Gonna Give Nobody Non O This Jelly Roll". CD

Incredible stuff from the jazz underground of Newark! This is one of the rarest albums ever recorded by jazz organist Larry Young – cut for the tiny Perception label during the early 70s, and featuring some of the cream of the New Jersey jazz underground. The album's got playing that bridges a number of Young's different styles – from his straighter soul jazz work at Blue Note, to his harder jamming with Santana and John McLaughlin, to his more fusion oriented albums for Arista. James Blood Ulmer's on guitar, but there's also a large ensemble of excellent players, and lots of other percussion and cool instrumentation that really gives the album an "out there" sound! Titles include "Sunshine Fly Away", "Saudia", "Hello Your Quietness", and "Khalid Of Space". LP, Vinyl record album

Amazing sounds from Frank Zappa – and a record that showed the world that he was also one hell of an arranger too! The album's got all the offbeat, tripped-out qualities that you'd expect from late 60s Zappa – but at times, it's also got this tightness that's really amazing – almost as if Frank's showing the world that he can easily do the same things as the studio wizards of LA pop – but chooses to keep most of his efforts on the wrong side of the tracks! There's plenty of larger backings at points – handled by some of the cream of the crop of the LA studio and jazz scene – but other moments are pretty darn raw, and have a gritty, almost homemade sound collage feel.

The King Of Diggin takes on one of the greatest record labels of the second generation of reggae – and turns in a massive mix of 30 tracks from the catalog of Greensleeves Records! We've heard plenty of DJ Muro skills over the years on hip hop, funky jazz, and classic soul – but here, he really surprises us with his ear for Jamaican music – and works together a beautiful mix of tracks with echoey brilliance, and a very strong bottom-end sound. The shift in Muro's style is wonderful – and, like all of his other mixes, further illuminates music we already love in the first place! Titles include "Lover Man" by Triston Palma, "Noah's Ark" by Eek A Mouse, "Bam Bam" by Cocoa Tea, "Boom Shack A Lack" by Junior Reid, "Attack On Ganymede" by Prince Jammy, "Run Run Run" by Capital Letters, "Nah Follow No Fashion" by Sugar Minott, "Modern Slavery" by Wailing Souls, "Hold On To What You Got" by Michael Prophet, "Ice Cream Love (dub)" by Johnny Osbourne, "Red River Dub" by The Revolutionaries, "Love It Like A Light Post" by Ranking Joe, and "King Champion" by Frankie Paul.

Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
That's a suave-looking dude on the cover, and there's some suave-sounding sounds within – the cream of the crop of the hippest spectrum of the French club scene at the start of the 80s, brought together in a beautiful package of grooves! The work here is quite different than some of the cheesier, clunkier Euro disco hits of the time – and instead, there's a lot of care and craft brought to the rhythms and lyrics – often a lot more soul elements than you might expect, and with occasional global currents that reflect the unique sound of Paris in the postcolonial years. There's almost an AOR catchiness to some of the tunes, but the presentation is more strongly soulful overall – on titles that include "Bye Cocotiers" by Marc Ashy, "Keep Cool" by Messan, "Sunshine" by Greg Smaha, "Sheriff's Horse" by Roots, "Funky Biguine" by Crystal, "Havana" by Nielo Feel, "Funk Force Leader" by Ideku Dynasty, "Talk Me Mam's" by Black Bells Group, "Le Sherif Qui Danse" by Claude Morgan, and "Givin It Up" by Charms.

✨✧ Fela & Ginger BakerLive! ... LP
Signpost, 1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
A really seminal album from Fela Kuti – searing live set that pairs him with drummer Ginger Baker – formerly of Cream, and a huge supporter of Fela's music on the UK scene! Baker had already picked up a lot of Fela's influence in his music – and rather than the record being one in which an African artist waters down his groove for a rock world, the set's instead one in which Baker makes a surprisingly strong stand with Fela's Africa 70 group – the classic lineup that featured the great Tony Allen on drums! The sound of the set is great – well on a par with Fela's best work of the time, and perhaps even a bit better – given the extra drive that Baker brings to the session. Tracks are all long, yet a bit more focused than usual – and titles include "Ye Ye De Smell", "Black Man's Cry", and "Let's Start". LP, Vinyl record album

Bureau B (Germany), 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the rare few vocal jazz sessions cut by the legendary Clarke-Boland Big Band – a highly swinging affair that ranks with the group's best work of the time for MPS! Singer Gitte Haenning was a bit of a pop-styled vocalist at the time – but in the company of the CBBB she really sounds great – coming across with an almost-icy tone that reminds us a bit of the work of Monica Zetterlund, and grooving with a soaring style that swings perfectly alongside the group! As usual, the players in the ensemble are the cream of the crop on both sides of the Atlantic – and include Johnny Griffin, Tony Coe, John Surman, Kenny Clarke, Benny Bailey, and Dusko Goykovich – all master musicians who know how to perfectly come together, yet also break out with a sweet solo when they get the space! The whole thing's got a sound that easily matches the CBBB vocal work with Carmen McRae and Mark Murphy – and titles include "I Love The Life I Live", "November Girl", "My Kinda World", "Sack Full Of Dreams", "Go To Hell", and "Marriage Is For Old Folks".

Tamla, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
A soaring set from the great Eddie Kendricks – and a record that brings his Detroit roots into play with the best Philly grooves of the time – thanks to production from the mighty Norman Harris! Harris works with the cream of the crop of the Sigma Sound scene, and cooks up these beautifully flowing grooves for Eddie – clubby tracks that work perfectly for his sublime vocal approach, mixed with some wonderful mellow moments that have this really heartbreaking intensity – maybe even a bit more depth than some of Kendricks' previous few records. A great example of this is the wonderful cut "The Newness Is Gone" – among other killer tracks that include "Born Again", "Sweet Tenderoni", "Don't Put Off Until Tomorrow", and the great "To You From Me".

Coco/Bomba (Japan), 1971. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
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 Pa'l Monte", "Pa Huele", "La Malanga", "La Libertad Logico", and "Chocolate Ice Cream".

Loads of great Hammond from this obscure American power trio – a group who clearly borrow a bit of inspiration from Cream, right down to some wicked guitar licks – but who also lean more towards jamming on the organ side of the spectrum, which makes for some really great grooves in the end! A few cuts lack the Hammond – and these get an even fiercer, heavier groove with the bass placed right up front in the mix –a nd the whole thing's the kind of amazing gem that should have propelled these guys onto much bigger fame. An obscure one from the Zell side of the east coast scene – with tracks that include "Collage Thought", "Second Time For Me", "Just Like You", "Slumberland Blues", and "No Time Tomorrow".

We're huge fans of the series Insecure – and over and above the performance and vision of the show by Issa Rae, we're also big fans of the music – which features a great array of contemporary artists working on the forefront of soul music – really taking things far in a range of 21st Century modes! This album features a few tracks with Issa delivering some of her trademark freestyle breakout rhymes – but most of the package is comprised of songs that feature in scenes from the show – music that also makes for a great introduction to the new world of underground soul. Rae performs "Go Low", "Cheater For One", "Ho For It", "Rejected", and "Bloct" – and other tracks include "Supermodel" by SZA, "Insecure" by Jazmine Sullivan & Bryston Tiller, "Crew" by Goldlink with Brent Faiyaz and Shy Glizzy, "A Lite" by Buddy, "Real Bitch Problems" by TT The Artist, "Lowkey" by Kari Faux, "Poppin" by Rico Nasty, "The Juice" by Hero, "Hit The Ceiling" by Lion Babe, "Feels Like" by NAO, "Fine Lines" by Jorja Smith, "Morning Blues" by Smiles Davis with Bosco and Tola, and "Gucci Ice Cream" by Girls In The Yard.

Reprise/Now Sounds (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of Paul Williams' greatest albums – produced by his friend and frequent collaborator Roger Nichols, with a style that's very much like the best work the pair recorded together! The songs are some of Williams' best – really warm and intimate numbers, done in a heartfelt style that lacks all the cloying touches of some of his later work – or that of bad interpretations of his work by other artists. Arrangements are by the cream of LA hipsters – Nichols, Perry Botkin, Chad Stuart, and Artie Butler – and the record has a mutedly groovy feel! Titles include "Time", "Roan Pony", "I Know You", "To Put Up With You", "Someday Man", and "So Many People". This great remastered UK edition has 12 bonus tracks: instrumental versions of "Someday Man", "So Many People", "Mornin' I'll Be Movin' On" and "To Put Up With You", sessions recordings of "Someday Man" and "The Drifter", plus mono versions several album tracks and a couple demo versions.

Some of these tracks were chart hits, but others were more underground – and together, they represent the cream of the crop of the disco years – tracks that found a way to create non-stop grooves, which are often extended here on special versions taken from 12" singles! Titles include "Shake Your Body (12" John Luongo disco mix)" by the Jacksons, "Boogie Wonderland (12" mix)" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Boogie Nights (12" version)" by Heatwave, "Ain't No Stoppin Us Now (12" mix)" by McFadden & Whitehead, "Native New Yorker (12" disco mix)" by Odyssey, "Keep On Dancing (12" version)" by Gary's Gang, "I Love America (12" mix)" by Patrick Juvet, "Vertigo/Relight My Fire (12" version)" by Dan Hartman with Loleatta Holloway, "Souvenirs (12" version)" by Voyage, "Givin Up Givin In (long version)" by Three Degrees, "Strut Your Funky Stuff (UK 12" rmx)" by Frantique, "Got To Be Real (12" version)" by Cheryl Lynn, "Turn The Beat Around (12" version)" by Vickie Sue Anderson, "Supernature (12" mix)" by Cerrone, "More More More (12" version)" by Andrea True Connection, "Can't Stop The Music (extended)" by Village People, "Rasputin (maxi version)" by Boney M, and "I Can't Stand The Rain (12" version)" by Eruption.

The sound here is slightly polished, but never too much – a bit more in the sound of bigger Florida groups, like Miami, with a tight groove overall, but still enough sharper funky bits on the edges! George plays bass and Clay handles guitar and keyboards – and the vocals seem to be sung by both parties, often in that slightly-flanged Miami style of the time. Titles include "My Uncle Funky", "Sweet Mary", "Cream Is Rising To The Top", and "Two Different Worlds" – plus the excellent mellow soul track "Free (I'll Always Be)", which has a nice sweet sound in the same vein as work by Milton Wright.

The score is one of the many excellent soundtracks written for films directed by Bruce Brown – director of some of the groundbreaking 60s docu-action films on surfing, skiing, and in this case, motorcycling – and it's easily one of the best to accompany his movies. The tracks are a mix of west coast groovy and funky jazz – played by a lineup that includes Emil Richards on percussion, Carol Kaye on bass, Mike Melvoin on organ, Tom Scott on saxes, and Larry Bunker on drums. A few tunes have groovy chorus vocals, with kind of a 60s commercial kind of sound – which is really great – and the instrumental tracks are nice and driving. Sally Stevens sings a lead vocal on the title track "On Any Sunday" – and other titles include "Sunday Drivin", "I Believed", "The End Of Love", "Messin Around", "Hindsight", "Widow Maker", and "Cross Country".

Minnie Riperton's still in the band on vocals, and her work on the LP is similar to that on the legendary Come To My Garden LP. The album features the incredible track "I Am the Blackgold of the Sun" – a haunting soul anthem that has been a favorite of groovers for years, and which was later made into a house track by NuYorican Soul.

One of the most open-ended and laidback records ever from Oliver Nelson – a set that gets away from the tighter arrangements of other albums, and really lets you concentrate on his saxophone work! The album's got a really wonderful feel throughout – easygoing and soulful, with work by a sextet that includes Eric Dolphy on alto, Richard Williams on trumpet, and Richard Wyands on piano – all grooving beautifully with immaculate Rudy Van Gelder production – used here with a slightly echoey quality that really deepens the sound of the set! Nelson plays both alto and tenor sax – and titles include "Screamin The Blues", "Alto-It is", "The Meetin", "The Drive", "Three Seconds", and "March On March On". CD

Paisley Park, 1985. Used (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Of all the various pieces of the Paisley Park empire, this is probably the one we most fondly return to. A great mid tempo groover, that could be a standout single on one of Prince's album from the time. 12-inch, Vinyl record
