✨✧ AalonCream City ... LP
Arista, 1977. Very Good- ... $3.99
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.)

DynamicsLove That I Need/Ice Cream Song ... 7-inch
Cotillion, Early 70s. Very Good ... $0.99
Two early tracks by the Dynamics – both recorded in Memphis with Tommy Cogbill! "Love That I Need" is kind of a bouncing, building number – harmonies soaring up farther than the harder Memphis backings, making for a really nice contrast that gives the tune an edge. "Ice Cream Song" is a remake of the Ronnie Shannon song, done in a style that's a bit more down-homey. 7-inch, Vinyl record

WMOT/Fantasy, 1979. Very Good ... $4.99
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

SupremesCream Of The Crop ... LP
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".

Warner, 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

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

Sunflower Soul, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Hammond funk and percussive boogaloo – the second 45 we've been lucky enough to hear from Chris Hazleton's Boogaloo 7 – even better than their first! "Alright Now!" kicks off with an organ groove with a thick tone, but comes like a cool breeze – leading the way for funky drums and hand percussion to set the groove – and with ample room for solos by the excellent players. "Stop Mr Ice Cream Man" is as rich of a treat as you'd expect given the title, again with some really fine solos. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Black FireCream ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Groovy greatness from the Italian sound library scene of the 70s – played by a cool little combo who seem to carry on the best styles from late 60s material by composers like Ennio Morricone or Armando Trovajoli! These guys mix together jazz, bossa, and some mod moments too – all with the kind of breezy styles that we love from earlier Italian film scores for comedies or romantic movies – especially those sweetly-stepping grooves that Morricone could do so well! Instrumentation changes up nicely – with some bossa percussion, offbeat electric piano, wah-wah guitar, and even some very cool wordless female vocals too. The whole thing's great – filled with the kind of gems we used to dig on the Easy Tempo series – and titles include "Corking", "Alcoholic", "Cream", "Airing", "Magnum", "Rush", "Relief", "Straggler", "Sorry", and "Melancolie". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Al GreenTokyo Live ... LP
Hi Records/Cream, 1981. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tasty double-live set from Al Green – one that has him working through longer versions of tunes than you'd hear on his studio albums, and really doing great in front of an appreciative Japanese crowd! The overall approach here is a bit more modern than on some of his older Hi albums – as the band uses the extra space to make things a bit more uptempo and really push the groove – but Al's vocals still hold the whole set together nicely, especially on the numbers where he lets loose a bit more. Linda Jones is one of the backup singers on the set – and titles include "Belle", "Let's Get Married", "Love & Happiness", "I Feel Good", "Dream", "God Blessed Our Love", "You Ought To Be With Me", and "Tired Of Being Alone".

John BakerVendetta Tapes – Incidental Music From The 1960s BBC TV Series & Other Radiophonics ... CD
Buried Treasure (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $18.99
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

A wild batch of jazz rock tunes – recorded by ex-Cream bassist Jack Bruce, along with a host of like-minded luminaries that include Chris Spedding, Harry Beckett, Dick Heckstall-Smith, and John Hisemann. Unlike Bruce's first solo album – Things We Like – which was an all-jazz outing, this album features Bruce singing as well, and an overall approach that has more of a rock-based song structure – yet still many of the expansive styles embraced by the Brit jazz rock generation of the time. Titles include "Rope Ladder To The Moon", "Theme For An Imaginary Western", "Tickets To Water Falls", and "The Clearout". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1954. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
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

E One, 2015. New Copy ... $10.99 17.98
Always-great work from Raheem DeVaughn – an artist who seems to spin out records with effortless ease, but always makes music that sounds totally wonderful! There's a flurry of song snippets and sound at the start of this one – almost as if Raheem's shuffling through his emotive memory bank, before launching into the rock-solid tracks that build the album together – all with a warm, seductive style that never promises to be anything it's not – and which is stated by DeVaughn proudly in the album's title! Heck, you've gotta love a record that's marketed with a warning – "Opening this CD will cause the population to spike" – and when it comes from Raheem, we might well believe it. Titles include "Black Ice Cream", "Father Rock Lovin", "Countdown To Love", "When You Love Somebody", "Miss Your Sex", "Strip", and "Never Never Land". CD

Douglas/Fuel 2000, 1962. Used ... $4.99
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". CD

FamilySong For Me ... LP
Reprise (UK), 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $19.99
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 ... LP
CTI, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $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". LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Ginger BakerFela & Ginger Baker Live! (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
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

Yale University Press, 2014. New Copy ... $7.99 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

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

Rotary ConnectionSongs/Hey Love ... CD
Cadet/BGP (UK), 1969/1971. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A pair of gems from the legendary Rotary Connection – an early Chicago group that featured Minnie Riperton on vocals, and Charles Stepney on production! Songs is amazing soul from Rotary Connection – and one of their greatest albums! The "songs" concept has the group working over a bunch of tunes by other folks – and the record features many late 60s rock titles, redone with the group's incredible baroque soul sound. Charles Stepney did the arrangements, and the music has that airy eerie quality that worked perfectly for Minnie Riperton's amazing voice. Includes a stellar cover of "Respect", with a slow trippy groove that has been sampled over the years – plus a wild cover of "Tales of Brave Ulysses" that virtually defines the term "psychedelic soul". Other tracks include "The Weight", "This Town", "The Salt Of The Earth", and "Sunshine Of Your Love". Hey Love is a massively beautiful piece of work by "the new Rotary Connection" – a version of this groundbreaking Chicago soul ensemble which featured Phil Upchurch, Henry Gibson, and Charles Stepney – the cream of the Chicago production scene! 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. A great album all the way through, and filled with loads of excellent cuts! Other tracks include "If I Sing My Song", "Hey, Love", "Love Has Fallen On Me", and a cover of Terry Callier's "Song For Everyman". CD

Ty SegallEmotional Mugger ... CD
Drag City, 2016. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99 15.98
A grimy gem from the indefatigable Ty Segall! Backed by here by The Muggers – with frequent co-horts including Mikal Cronin and new collaborators Emmett Kelly (Cairo Gang), Dale Crover (Melvins) and others – it's got a tense, murky vibe quite unlike his earlier records! It's dense and dissonant, but has strong songcraft – with weird bits of keyboard that remind us of pre-WB Devo (as does the creepy baby mask on the cover...coincidence?) without burying the raw garagey rock at the core. Includes "Squealer", "Californian Hills", "Emotional Mugger/Leopard Priestess", "Breakfast Eggs", "Diversion", "Baby Big Man (I Want A Mommy)", "Mandy Cream", "Candy Sam", "Squeler Two". "WUOTWS" and "The Magazine". CD

A Certain RatioACR – Live In America ... LP
Dojo (UK), 1985. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A later live set by the pioneering funk-steeped punks A Certain Ratio – a surprisingly terse set that finds the group operating as a well-oiled machine! It's compiled from cassette recordings that the group culled on its 1985 US tour, apparently when they were opening for New Order – featuring the best recordings of the groups better known songs from throughout the tour – and all the better for it. The sound is almost stunningly strong – and really comes off with the unified feel of a single set. Tracks include "Shack Up", "Knife Slits Water", "Wild Party", "Touch", "Life's A Scream", "The Fox" and more! LP, Vinyl record album

A Certain RatioLife's A Scream/There's Only This ... 12-inch
Factory (UK), Early 80s. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $14.99
ACR's tightening things up a bit by this point, but still sounding quite nice! "Life's A Scream" is actually a pretty catchy dancefloor number – not as scratchy/punky as earlier work, and with a clean and fluid groove that's quite soulful, yet still has the darker touches of earlier work. "There's Only This" is moodier and more atmospheric, with nice guitar bits and piano lines that ring out amidst the dark vocals. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ AnimalsAnimalism ... LP
MGM, 1966. Sealed ... $24.99
Pure burning soul from The Animals – a nicely stripped-down set that revels in older R&B styles – cooked up with a version of the group that features Dave Rowberry on Hammond and lots of screaming vocals from Eric B! 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".

Bama LamasGoing Up? ... LP
Bama Lamas, 2014. Sealed ... $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

✨✧ James BrownPlease Please Please ... LP
King, 1959. Very Good- ... $24.99
An incredible early album from James Brown – featuring 16 raw R&B tracks culled from his early years at King – and virtually the blueprint for so many other great things to follow! "Please Please Please" was James' first big hit – and as you probably already know, it's got a sheer raw unbridled screaming sound that forever changed the face of soul music. The rest of the album's in a similar mode – and has plenty of great numbers that evoke a similar sound, including the obvious follow-up "No, No, No, No", plus "That's When I Lost My Heart", "Chonnie On Chon", "Hold My Baby's Hand", and "Tell Me What I Did Wrong". This is the 2nd version of the album – with a green cover that has James bending over a microphone and screaming. LP, Vinyl record album

Clarke Boland Big BandEbulient Roaring Screaming Big Band Sound ... LP
MPS, 1972. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
U.S. double LP reissue of two great sides of hard swinging, hard grooving jazz by the great Clark-Boland Big Band. This is some of the best European jazz to be recorded in the late 60's, and one of the best ways to hear "lost" geniuses like Benny Bailey, Sahib Shihab, Jimmy Woode, Shake Keane, and Jimmy Deuchar – not to mention more famous players like Ronnie Scott, Eddie Davis, and Johnny Griffin. Great all the way through, with loads of tight short cuts like "The Turk", "Milkshake", "November Girl", "Peter's Waltz", and "New Box". Big on the international club scene, and big on the south side of Chicago. How can you go wrong? LP, Vinyl record album

Jerry Cole & His SpacemenSurf Age ... CD
Sundazed, 1964. New Copy ... $13.99 16.98
Mid 60s surf grooves from Jerry Cole – blazing guitar-led instrumentals, though this is not a simple, quickie cash-in on the surf trend – it's a actually a top notch taste of expert LA studio genius! Cole is a brilliant guitarist, and the Spaceman he assembled for the Surf Age record features the creme of the crop of LA studio geniuses from the period – including Hal Blaine, Earl Palmer, Steve Douglas and others. The mix of searing guitars with a raw rhythms with virtuoso musicianship really puts this record above and beyond most others! Includes "Surf Age", "Martian Surf", "Night Rumble", "Night Rumble", "Power Surf", "Bronze Surfer", "Jerry's Jump", "Deep Surf", "Racing Waves", "One Color Blues", "Ride-Um!" and more.

Betty DavisThey Say I'm Different ... LP
Just Sunshine/Light In The Attic, 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
Killer work from Betty Davis – one of the most impressive female funk talents ever! If you ever needed a definition of funk, this record may well be it – snapping drums, sharp-edged guitars, and sex-filled basslines that slink and slide all over the bottom of the grooves – a perfect setting for Betty's incredible vocals – which themselves have a smokey, raspy quality that's completely unique! At times, Davis is almost speaking, but at others she's practically screaming – belting out the lyrics in a way that makes you feel like you're sharing some space with her at the end of the bar as she gets more and more wound up about issues and people who are on her mind. And as if the vocals weren't enough, the backings are incredible too – filled with drum breaks and basslines that few other albums can match – all wrapped around badass tunes that include "Shoo-B-Doop & Cop Him", "He Was A Big Freak", "70's Blues", "Git In There", "Special People", "Don't Call Her No Tramp", and "Your Mama Wants Ya Back".

Durutti ColumnLive At The Venue (180 gram pressing – with bonus CD) ... LP
Durutti (UK), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
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

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

Michael FennellyLane Changer ... CD
Epic/Wounded Bird, 1973. New Copy ... $7.99 11.98
Solo work from Michael Fennelly – not exactly a household name, but an artist who's well-remembered for his work in Curt Boettcher's Millennium and the later group – getting some strong post-Zombies production work from Chris White, and some extra help on the record from Rod Argent! Fennelly's voice has a nicely escalated range – the sort that's really at home on some of the more screaming rockers, but which also has a way of bringing an edge to some of the more laidback tracks too – which keeps most of the record relatively raw, and not as smooth as similar major label singer/songwriter efforts of the time. Titles include "Flyer", "Bad Times", "Give Me Your Money", "Over My Dead Body", "Won't You Please Do That", and "Lane Changer". CD

✨✧ Maynard FergusonPrimal Scream/New Vintage/Carnival ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1976/1977/1978. Used 2CD ... $9.99
A trio of heavy-hitters from hornman Maynard Ferguson – all served up in one sweet set! Primal Scream is one of the funkiest records ever from Ferguson – the climax of a great run of bigger group grooves in the 70s! The record's a tight batch of groovers, with production and keyboards by Bob James – and the whole thing's a mixture of big band funk and electronics that's simply out of this world! Side one kicks off with two massive numbers – the Arp-heavy "Cheshire Cat Walk", and the Kool & The Gang-ish "Primal Scream" – and both cuts are quite long, with loads of cool instrumental effects. Side two is a bit softer, but it does include a long keyboard groover called "Swamp". On New Vintage, Maynard really grooves it – playing with a group that's even larger than some of his early 70s funk sessions, in a style that's got traces of disco and R&B-styled fusion! The set was arranged, conducted, and produced by Jay Chataway – who's going for a nice smooth mode on most of the cuts, almost in the slick manner of some late 70s cop show soundtrack. Tracks are a bit longer than usual, with more room for the groove, and titles include the originals "Oasis" and "El Vuelvo", a surprisingly nice disco take on "Maria", and the cuts "Airegin" and "Star Wars". Carnival is a cool cooker from Maynard Ferguson – and a set that has all the upbeat tones you'd expect from the title, but lots of funky currents underneath! The set really sparkles right from the start – and has that sweet vibe that Maynard was really getting perfect on these late 70s records for Columbia – jazzy fusion that's tight, but never too uptight – with lots of room for sweet solos from the leader himself, plus Bill Hannon on moog, John Qdini on guitar, Eric Traub on tenor, and Mike Migliore on alto. Titles include a famous working of Earth Wind & Fier's "Fantasy" – plus "Battlestar Galactica", "MF Carnival", "Baker Street", "Birdland", "How Ya Doin Baby", and "Stella By Starlight". CD

✨✧ Marvin GayeMarvin Gaye Live! ... CD
Tamla, 1974. Used ... $3.99
A wonderful 70s live album from Marvin Gaye – a set that was as expansive, ambitious, and sophisticated as his studio work from the time! The album's put together almost like a 3-sided portrait of Marvin – in that it begins with a long section of current work, moves into a "fossil medley" of older hits, then returns to "now" to showcase two of his biggest his of the time. The orchestrations are sublime – wonderfully carried off in a live setting amidst some very frantic screams from the females in the audience – and Marvin's vocals are incredible too – floating out magically amidst the crowd, and easily some of his best on record from the decade. Titles include the album's hit reading of "Distant Lover" – plus "Let's Get It On", "What's Going On", "Trouble Man", "Inner City Blues", "Distant Lover", "Keep Getting It On", and "Jan". CD
