Freddie NorthCuss The Wind ... CD
Mankind/Essential, 1975. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Sophisticated deep soul from Freddie North – recorded in a great mood that mixes Freddie's down home vocals with some warm backings that share just the right amount of strings with subtle soul – an approach that really has North on the forefront of some of the southern soul changes that were taking place at the time! The result is really great – a deeply proud album that steps past its roots to a much larger goal, and which stands as some of Freddie's best work from the time – majestic, free of cliche, and a treasure that's still waiting to be discovered by a much larger audience! Titles include "Gotta Go Get Your Mommy", "I Loved Another Woman", "Cuss The Wind", "My Whole World Has Ended", and "Love To Hate". CD

Gaslamp KillerInstrumentalepathy (2 X 10 inch LP – with download) ... LP
Cuss, 2016. New Copy 2 X 10" Gatefold ... $23.99 24.98
Heady sounds from Gaslamp Killer – tunes that are as fuzzy as they are funky – which might be something that we'd say about the man himself! As with other productions, there's definitely a focus on the low end and lo-fi here – but never as a lack of anything, or as a mistake – as the music clearly knows how to make the most out of distortion, and use it to create just the right sort of rumble to go along with the right funky currents! Malcolm Catto guests on the album on one track – and the music is definitely in the legacy he first began years ago on Mo Wax – and other guests include Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Heliocentrics, and Gonjasufi. Titles include "Good Morning", "Pathetic Dreams", "Gammalaser Kill", "Shred You To Bits", "The Butcher", "Residual Tingles", "Warm Wind", and "Haleva". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousNo More Heartaches/What Am I To Do ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
A pair of Trojan Records compilations – back to back on a single CD! Both of these sets are way more than just collections of early rocksteady and reggae – as the set list of both records was surprisingly special – and often included some obscurities from Trojan, and well as singles that only got circulation in small Jamaican pressings – which makes the records essential for fans of more obscure tracks from the time! Most cuts are of late 60s vintage, and have a strongly soulful current, and grooves that are mostly in the post-ska mode – and the CD features 24 tracks in all – with titles that include "Soul Special" and "Soul Scorcher" by King Cannon, "Lucky Boy" by Glen & Dave, "No More Heartaches" by The Beltones, "Zumberly" by The Woodpeckers, "Saturday Night" and "What Am I To Do" by Tony Scott, "Hang Em High" by Richard Ace, "Easy Sound" by The Joy Boy, "Cuss Cuss" by Lloyd Robinson, "Mr Lonely" by The Jamaicans, "Cool Down" by Winston Hines, "Hold The Pussy" by Kid Gungo, and "Since You've Been Gone" by Keble Drummond.

VariousSpirit Of 69 – The Boss Reggae Sevens Collection (8 x 7 inch singles) ... 7-inch
Trojan (UK), 1969. New Copy 8 x 7 inch set ... $53.99 59.98
A heavy-duty set of reggae rarities – all Trojan Records singles from the year 1969 – a moment when the UK label was bursting out big, and really helping the sound of Jamaican music to establish big roots in the UK! The grooves here are sharp-edged, and step out of the best early ska and rocksteady modes – the kinds of cuts that were taken up strongly by the new British working class audience for the music – who really pushed some of these cuts onto greatness. The package faithfully offers the singles with original label designations – which also include Duke, Big Shot, and Amalagmated imprints – and titles include "Cuss Cuss" and "Lavender Blue" by Lloyd Robinson, "Just Another Lonely Night" and "Been So Long/You Lied To Your Daddy" by Derrick Harriott, "Dulcemania" by Drumbago & The Dynamites, "Ali Baba" and "I'm Your Man" by John Holt, "If This World Were Mine" by Tyrone Evans, "Everybody Bawlin" by Vincent Gordon, "Apollo 11" by The Moon Boys, "Love Love Everyday" by The Pioneers, "Easy Sounds" by The Jay Boys, and "Come Look Here" by The Gold Tones. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Bob Dorough & Sam Most QuartetComplete Recordings ... CD
Lonehill/Bethlehem (Spain), 1953/1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A little-remembered combination in jazz – but a great one! In the years before he broke into fame as a vocalist, Bob Dorough was mostly a pianist – and here, he's working in a set of tracks with reed player Sam Most, recorded mostly for the Bethlehem label in the mid 50s. The group's a nicely stripped-down one, and features Bob Dorough on piano, Bill Crow or Percy Heath on bass, and Joe Morello or Louis Bellson on drums. Most plays flute, as usual, but also offers up some incredible clarinet playing – with archly-crafted solos that really swing, but with kind of an arch modernist tone – in the manner of some of Jimmy Guiffre's best rhythm-bound work of the 50s. The set also features a few bonus tracks (possibly live) from a 1953 date that also includes Urbie Green on trombone and Doug Mettome on trumpet – and the set's got 15 titles that include "Obvious Conclusion", "Notes To You", "A Cuss Called Coss", "Eullalia", "Scroobydoo", "Stella By Starlight", "Two For Three", and "House Of Bread Blues".

✨✧ Les McCannHustle To Survive ... LP
Atlantic, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet funky soul from Les McCann – one of the best of his 70s albums that bring in a lot of vocals with the keyboards – and served up in some tight tunes that really pack a nice sort of punch! The album doesn't have the long jammers of some of McCann's other records from the time – but the shift to shorter, focused tunes is a nice one – thanks to Bert De Coteaux, who keeps things carefully poised to bring out all the best in Les' talents – even his vocals, which seem to sound even more moving on the mellow cuts here than the more upbeat and righteous ones! McCann plays a range of different keyboards – including Fender Rhodes – and the CD's got two great instrumental cuts, "Us" and "Butterflies" – plus the tracks "Well Cuss My Daddy", "Why Is Now", "Changing Seasons", "Says Who Says What", and "Let Your Learning Be Your Eyes".

✨✧ Too ShortLife Is...Too Short (180 gram pressing) ... LP
BMG/RCA, 1988. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Too Short's follow up to Born To Mack, with the same raw, stripped down Bay Area vibe. It's too bad that gangsta, pimp and street rhymes have gone on to become such a cliche, but when we hear these early classics, we're reminded of how fresh this stuff was at the time. Still sounds great today, too. Includes"Life Is Too Short", "I Ain't Trippin", "Nobody Does It Better", "Cuss Words", "City Of Dope", "Don't Fight The Feelin", "Rhymes" and "Pimp The Ho".

✨✧ Freddie NorthWhat Are You Doing To Me – The Complete A-Bet Recordings Plus ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The best work ever recorded by Freddie North – one of the most sophisticated singers on the southern scene at the end of the 60s – and an artist who really helped move deep soul past some of the more overdone cliches! The presentation and arrangements here are wonderful – beautifully suited to Freddie's deep-toned vocals, in a way that makes him one of the coolest, classiest singers of the southern scene at the time – yet also one who's still able to reach down to deeper roots to inflect his lyrics with just the right sort of force. The balance is wonderful – and almost makes North feel like some sort of southern soul counterpart to Chicago singers like Walter Jackson or Jerry Butler – and the set brings together work from his one full album for the Abet label, plus some other singles, and a few previously unreleased tracks too – 23 titles that include "Cuss The Wind", "Gotta Go Get Your Mommy", "From The Blind Side", "I Loved Another Woman", "Sun Comes Up", "I Have A Dream", "Oh Lord What Are You Doing To Me", "Til I Get It Right", "Lovin On Back Streets", "Taking Her Love Ain't Gonna Be Easy", and "Thank That Woman".

✨✧ Horace AndyDance Hall Style ... LP
Wackie's (Germany), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A real Wackie's Records classic, and a set that's exactly what it proclaims – the wonderful vocals of Horace Andy, one of the most soulful singers of a previous generation of Jamaican music – coming into contact with the spacier styles of the early dancehall years! Rhythms are slow-stepping and stellar – never overdone, and given a very bassy bottom – thanks to great production from Bullwackie Barnes. All tracks are quite long, and are equally instrumental workouts as much as a showcase for Andy's vocals – on titles that include "Money Money", "Lonely Woman", "Cuss Cuss", "Stop The Fuss", "Spying Glass", and "Lets Live In Love".

Morty CraftWorld Of Percussion ... LP
Warwick, Early 60s. Very Good ... $7.99
A pretty darn nice record, and one that's trying for sort of an Esquivel singing strings approach – with orchestrations that begin in a fairly standard mode, then swing out with these wild riffs on the string section that kind of get you in the gut and make the hair on your neck stand up! Titles include "Misty", "Adventures In Paradise", "Under Paris Skies", "Early Autumn", and "Lullaby Of Birdland". Great cover, too – with a nice bullseye! LP, Vinyl record album

Henri GuedonCosmozouk Percussion (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Epic/Production Dessinee (Japan), Late 70s. New Copy ... $18.99
The coolest grooves we've ever heard from percussionist Henri Guedon – a really wonderful blend of Latin, Caribbean, and jazz-based influences – all filtered into a very special sound! There's plenty of percussion at the core, but there's also some sweet keyboards too – used sparely, so that the album's not a funky electric one – but in just the right ways to bring in a cool sort of 70s funk touch to the whole record – almost in some of the ways you'd find with Nuyorican funk of the same time! Vocals are great, too – mostly in French – but the instrumental element is what really moves us – and it moves us plenty! Titles include "Brujeira", "Tou Patou Feme", "Guajira Contestation", "Bomba Miscien", "Vulcano", and "Marcel Song". CD

Jo Jones & Milt HintonPercussion & Bass ... LP
Everest, Late 50s. Very Good ... $21.99
Percussion, bass, and nothing else at all – a really wonderful album, especially for the time – and quite historic, too – as it really prefigures later experiments like this in European jazz! Jo Jones was always hailed as one of the most innovative drummers of his generation, and on a record like this, you really get to hear that strongly – as Jo plays with a bold mix of rhythm and melody in his drums, coming up with sounds that are as amazing as they are swinging – perfectly blended with the round, deep tones of Milt Hinton's bass – which also has a strong ear for melody too! Titles include "Shoes On The Ruff", "Me & You", "Tam", "Coffee Dan", "HOT", and "Ochos Puertas". LP, Vinyl record album

Herman Kelly & LifePercussion Explosion! ... LP
Alston, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99
The percussion-heavy soul gem from Herman Kelly & Life – recorded in both Brazil & Miami – and awash with killer drum work all the way through! The album's a key part of the Miami sound especially – and really shows the way that city's 70s funk scene used congas heavily – really filling up the middle of a cut with even more energy than usual! The album's best known for the classic sample cut "Dance to the Drummer's Beat" – which is offered up here in a nice extended version, with a long percussion break that makes it even tastier than usual – and the record's also got a few other uptempo cuts like "Who's the Funky DJ?" and "Do The Handbone" – plus the tracks "Time After Time", "A Refreshing Love", and "Share Your Love".

✨✧ VariousMystic Males 2 – Tripped Out Troubadours From 1966 to 1969 ... CD
Pet Records, Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Really mad music from this weird little series – a set of pop tracks from the end of the 60s, but all done with these weird psych and spiritual touches – definitely the "mystic males" promised in the title! The sound here isn't just that of mainstream pop-psych – and instead really reflects the deeper underground currents going on in the American scene at the time – on these small label singles that effortlessly swirl the vocals with trippy organ lines, fuzzy guitar, sparkling keyboards, and lots of cool twists and turns on the percussion and other acoustic instrumentation – often abstracted a bit in the production! Themes aren't that different from the mainstream, but also have an oddly eerie feel too – and titles include "London Bound" by Ed Powers, "Flower Song" by Shalynn, "Sometime Girl" by Gerry Pond, "I'm A Deeper Blue" by John Dunn, "How Much Do I Love You" by Darrius, "Four Robins Singing" by Tyroee Forrest, "Daydream" by Paul Stoop, and "Before She Goes" by Richard Coronado.

Buda (France), 2011. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A timeless blend of traditions – music with Sufi religious origins, performed by a contemporary Zanzibar group who are part of the small living legacy of the style! There's a really slow-building and hypnotic feel to the long tracks in the set – a mix of ensemble vocal performances and percussion, layered together in a way that feels very spiritual, especially as the tunes move on – with a swaying sort of energy that clearly embraces the whole ensemble as they perform together! The sound is very unique – quite different than any of the other titles in the Zanzibara series – and represents a wonderful flowering of Islamic cultural elements on the global scene. Titles include "Dua", "Dahala 3", "Dahala 2", and "Dahala 1". CD

African Head ChargeMy Life In A Hole In The Ground (with download) ... LP
On-U Sound (UK), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.98
Seminal sounds from the On-U Sound label – and a record that perhaps provides one of the most lasting illustration of the label's genius! African Head Charge work in this unique blend of Jamaican dub, British post-punk electronics, and some earthier textures that might be more at home in Brian Eno's "fourth world" series – a masterful blend handled by producer Adrian Sherwood, who's still at the height of his power here – and works with percussion from Bonjo I, melodica from Doctor Pablo, saxes from Deadly Headly, and some nice echoey drums from Mus'come and AV Scott. Lizard provides the heavy bass – and cuts include "Elastic Dance", "Stone Charge", "Hole in the Roof", and "Crocodile Shoes". LP, Vinyl record album

On-U Sound (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
Long-lost material from one of the coolest groups on the UK scene in the post-punk years – a wealth of unreleased tracks from the mighty African Head Charge – a group whose sound perfectly defined the legendary On-U Sound record label! The tunes are often quite spare and stripped-down – showcasing the core AHC sound of percussionist Bongo and studio wizard Adrian Sherwood – and his fantastic talent for creating analogue electronic madness alongside core organic, acoustic elements. Some of these tracks appeared in different versions on later albums, but these recordings are very raw and experimental – a real showcase for the On-U genius at its best! Titles include "More Bizarre", "Doctor Find", "Low Protein Snack", "Snake In The Goal", "Makola Market", and "Slippery Heel". LP, Vinyl record album

Grupo AguaTransparencia ... CD
Som Livre/Discobertas (Brazil), 1978. New Copy ... $16.99
The cover image has a nicely rough-edged quality, and the music inside does too – a really organic statement of genius from Brazil's Grupo Agua! The group play very close to their roots – mixing quick acoustic guitars and percussion in a level that almost feels Spanish in its complexity, but which definitely has a more South American vibe overall – especially when wood flute is added into the mix, which creates a further lyrical level alongside their vocals! These guys are hardly the touristy sound of the 60s Andean music boom – and instead, they seem to take all the currents of that sound, add in a hip 70s sense of harmony, and really send the music forward with a freewheeling vibe that's very unique. The album has echoes of the 70s rootsy folk movement with some of the more underground work in Brazil – but it's also completely unlike anything else we've ever heard. Titles include "La Luna Llena", "Esperanzas", "El Colibri", "Volver A Los 17", "Tarkeada", "Caldera", and "La Semilia". CD

Eden AhbezEden's Island ... LP
Del-Fi, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
An incredibly evocative record – one of the strangest of its kind, and an audio treasure that we've loved for years! Eden Ahbez first came into public prominence as the man who wrote "Nature Boy" for Nat King Cole – a dark, moody tune that was as mysterious and earthy as the man who wrote it! This album was recorded nearly a decade after Cole's original hit, and features Ahbez almost in Moondog-like territory – working in an amazing setting of odd instruments and exotic percussion – but also singing in this almost spiritualist kind of way! The record's got plenty of ties to the exotica scene of the late 50s – but also stand out from the pack with a mad vision that's all its own – a strange intersection of lines that one might draw between Moondog, Martin Denny, and Anton La Vey! Tracks include "The Wanderer", "Eden's Island", "Tradewind", "Full Moon", "Mongoose", "Market Place", "The Old Boat", "Island Girl" and "La Mar". LP, Vinyl record album
(Recent reissue. Includes the insert.)
