✨✧ De La Soul3 Feet High & Rising (original single LP pressing) ... LP
Tommy Boy, 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mindblowing – undeniably one of the most important records ever in hip hop, much less pop muisic, but we didn't need to tell you that. Original pressing of the first De La LP, and it still sounds as great now as it did when it blew our minds way back at the end of the 80's! All the cuts and skits you've come to know and love are here – "Me, Myself & I", "The Magic Number", "Buddy", "Jenifa Taught Me", "Ghetto Thang", "Plug Tunin'", "Potholes In My Lawn" and more!

Tommy Boy, 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great 3-sided single that features two regular sides, plus a third side "hidden" amidst the grooves of the second side. Loads of great stuff, including "Brain Washed Follower" and "Ain't Hip to Be Labeled a Hippy". The kind of 12 inch single that makes collecting them worth while! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ De La SoulAnd The Anonymous Nobody ... CD
AOI, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A major later career creative win for De La Soul – a mind-bogglingly diverse, frequently brilliant record that manages to rival their best early work in stylistic breadth! This one's an epic – a 17 track, nearly 70 minute opus that finds De La working with an eclectic group of collaborators on a project that finds them hinting at past glories – be it the laidback jazzy production of the immediate post-"D.A.I.S.Y Age" to their impressive, genre-defying collaborations with the Gorillaz and others – but it's very much a fresh effort with nary a whiff of nostalgia. It's a grower, too – a record you'll need to listen to a bunch of times to really get to the heart of it – and in a post-millennium age of instant gratification, you REALLY gotta hand it to Pos, Dave and Mase for defiantly making a true blue L(ong)P(layer) Titles include "Genesis" with Jill Scott, "Royalty Capes", "Nosed Up", "Pain" with Snoop Dogg, "Memory Of...(US)" with Estelle & Pete Rock, "Snoopies" with David Byrne, "Greyhounds" with Usher, "Drawn" with Little Dragon, "Whoodeeni" with 2Chainz, "Here In After" with Damon Albarn and more.

Martinho Da VilaDe Bem Com A Vida ... CD
Sony (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... $11.99
Instantly timeless work from Martinho Da Vila – a set that's every bit as powerful as his classic albums from the 70s – and done with an even more personal sound! Martinho first rose to fame at a time when there was a big wave of new samba recordings in Brazil – a mode that still held onto the roots, but also pushed the music with a fullness in terms of production – never too commercial, yet still quite different than the approach used here – which is very intimate, and maybe makes the album one of the singer's most impressive ever! The passage of years has only made Martinho's vocals better, and amidst the spare percussion and stringed instrumentation, he really carries the sound of the record beautifully – making us feel as if we've stumbled upon to his genius all over again, but at an even more powerful level. Titles include "Samba Sem Letra", "Amanha E Sabado", "Danadinho Danado", "Choro Chorao", "Soul Brasileiro", "Muita Luz", "Sarava Sarava", and "Daqui De La E De Acola". CD

Johnny ThunderLoop De Loop ... LP
Diamond, Late 60s. Very Good ... $11.99
Although this one looks like it's going to be a throwaway album of gimmicky songs, it's actually a pretty great batch of tracks with a New York uptown sound that follows in the tradition of work by Ben E King, Chuck Jackson, and Tommy Hunt. Teddy Vann handled the arrangements – and his mix of strings, piano, and backup vocals is a perfect foil for Johnny's roughly shouted lead. Add in a great blend of fresh songs, and you've got a pretty great 60s soul album! Titles include "Drink Drink", "Good Morning Sadness", "The Chain", "A Broken Heart", "Al La Wetta", "Don't Be Ashamed", and "In & Out The Window". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousDe-Liteful & Soulful – Deep Mover ... CD
De-Lite/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $29.99
A slice of soul you might never expect – early work from the De-Lite label, a company better-known for their famous club hits of the late 70s – but starting out here with an amazing array of deep soul 45s! The music is a wonderful contrast to the disco and club of the label's fame – and showcases an immediate commitment to singers who could really knock it out of the park – with vocals that rival the sounds coming from southern labels like Stax, or some of the more famous productions on Atlantic – which is a huge surprise if you only know the De-Lite recordings by Kool & The Gang or The Kay-Gees! 25 tracks in all – all super-rare – and titles include "Keep Away" by The Appointments, "Look What You Done For Me" by Contributors Of Soul, "Oh Girl" by Johnny Washington, "Need You Girl" by Fred Cole, "I Wish It Would Rain" by Beverly Hammonds, "Say So" by La Jay Alexander, "Everlasting Love" by Johnny Washington, "I Saw You There" by The Appointments, "I Smell Trouble" by Johnny De'Vigne, "I'll Always Love You" by Felton Burks, "Send Her Back" by Sammy Taylor, "When A Woman Loves A Man" by Jean Battle, "Tender Loving Care" by Joe Kennedy, and "I Got To Get Close To You" by Yvonne Daniels.

✨✧ VariousNeo Blue-Eyed Soul – AOR Style ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The title more than gives this one away – and the album's a great exploration of that growing global underground who've turned back towards the 70s, to re-embrace and re-invent the smooth contemporary sound of the decade! You might know a few names on here from the Dusty Groove racks – like Ed Motta or Jarrod Lawson – but many artists are ones we've not heard before, and offer up a stunning selection of tracks that may well beat some of our LA studio gems from the big labels. The vocals are wonderfully soulful – more than you might even expect – and the production is sublime – not commercial, but a cool reworking of older crossover modes with a leaner 21st Century aesthetic! Titles include "I Recall" by Andre Solomko, "Red Casette" by Mama's Gun, "Someone" by Moonstones, "Leblon" by Adam Dunning, "He's There" by Jarrod Lawson, "Some Say" by We'll Make It Right, "The Masquerade Is Over" by Pieter De Graaf with Benny Sings, "Garota" by Erlend Oye, "Hangover" by Roos Jonker, "Smile" by Ed Motta, "Always On The Run" by Roman Andren, "Always Belong To You" by Michelle Sparrow, and "You're Out Of Business" by Smooth Reunion.

✨✧ VariousVenezuela 70 – Cosmic Visions Of A Latin American Earth – Venezuelan Experimental Rock In The 1970s ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A completely amazing collection of sounds from the 70s scene in Venezuela – a really un-tapped legacy of fantastically creative music – most of it pretty darn groovy, too! Despite the "rock" in the title, the music here is more in a mix of funky jazz and other creative instrumental styles – a bit of Latin in some of the rhythms, some spiritual currents at other points, and a really rich blend of electric and acoustic instrumentation, with some other offbeat touches too! The music is almost more on the farther side of the spectrum from creative Latin combos in New York or LA at the time – not salsa, but with some salsa currents – not Chicano rock, but with some of those elements too – and maybe some of the better touches of the most experimental groups in Havana, the few who were reaching for a new style at the time. Venezuela was riding high on oil money at the time of these recordings – and there's definitely a sense of creativity for its own sake going on here – especially in some of the more electric moments, which reflect elements we really never would have expected. As always with Soul Jazz, the package is as great as the music – a mini-history lesson in itself – and titles include "Irene" by Aldemaro Romero Y Su Onda Nueva, "Dame De Comer" by Miguel Angel Fuster, "Amor En Llamas" by Pablo Schneider, "Aragueney" by Vytas Brenner, "Joropo No 1" by Grupo CIM, "Panico A Las 5am" by Angel Rada, "San Juan Tambo Y Fuera" by Un Dos Tres Y Fuera, "Ayudame A Encontrar Mi Camino" by Apocalipsis, and "Barcos De Pape" by Fernando Yvosky.

Ray BarrettoHard Hands ... LP
Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Killer stuff all around! This album's a monster – one of Ray's greatest, with the same sort of Latin Soul groove heard famously on his classic Acid LP. The record has Ray cutting across many genres – blending Latin, soul, jazz, and a slight bit of funk – all into a set of grooves that never stops pleasing, and which will make you start digging through the Latin racks like mad, just to find another LP this great! Titles include "Hard Hands", "Abidjan", "Got to Have You", "New York Soul", and the fantastic track "Love Beads", which has a cool rolling piano line that sounds like a great De La Soul sample. It's a great track, and makes the entire album worth the price! LP, Vinyl record album

CokeCoke ... CD
Sound Triangle/Essential, Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
Funky Latin breaks and very groovy grooves – the kind of record that you hear for only a second, and say "oh yeah, this is the stuff!" Coke were an obscure Florida combo who mixed together Latin, funk, and soul – served up in a crossover style that's halfway between the sound of the NuYorican generation and the heavier hitters of LA's Chicano funk scene! Instrumentation includes organ, guitar, and trumpets – and vocals are delivered in a brown eyed soul style that burns nicely with the heavier grooves of the group. But best of all is the drummer, who really kicks it large on the kit – and creates some really nice funky numbers on the set! Includes the break classic "Na Na", plus the tunes "Got To Touch Your Face", "Te Amo Mas", "Quiero Decirte", "Bang Bang", "Bun Bun Bun", "You Turn Me On", and "Que Seria De Mi". A really great album – with a totally unique sound! CD

Detroit EmeraldsDo Me Right/You Want It You Got It (plus bonus track) ... CD
Westbound (UK), 1971/1972. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
A pair of killers back to back on a single CD – two Westbound albums by The Detroit Emeralds! Do Me Right is a gem of a record from the mighty Detroit Emeralds – a group who are really finding a new 70s vibe here, while still holding onto all the rich harmonies they developed on their early singles! The trio work here together with a fluid sound and the kind of harmonies you might have heard from The Impressions a few years before – but they also get a really unique groove that befits their presence on Detroit's legendary Westbound label – a style that's maybe a bit more heady, and sometimes righteous! Titles include the classic title cut "Do Me Right", the great loping groover "Lee", and the cuts "Holding On", "I Can't See Myself", and "What You Gonna Do About Me". Next up Is You Want It You Got It – an early 70s gem from the group! Detroit had plenty of great harmony groups in the 60s – but by the early 70s, The Detroit Emeralds were right on top – a feat that was easy to do with work this great! The trio have a fantastic approach here – a bit of the psychedelic soul sound of the Norman Whitfield generation, but also some warmer, sweeter harmonies too – a bit of an east coast vibe that really stands out – and which is done by the group at a level that's way better than most of their contemporaries! Arrangements are by group member Abe Tilmon, and very hip – and titles include the group's great take on "Baby Let Me Take You In My Arms", which has a great sample used by De La Soul – plus "You Want It You Got It", "Feel The Need In Me", "There's love For Me Somewhere", "Till You Decide To Come Home", and "I've Got To Move". CD also features a bonus radio promo spot too! CD

Teddy EdwardsSunset Eyes (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pacific Jazz, 1959/1960. Used ... $13.99
Teddy Edwards at the height of his powers – packing a tight, soulful punch that made him one of the most popular players on the west coast in the early 60s – and a great link between earlier R&B tenorists and the leaner sound of 60s jazz! Edwards has a nice gutbuckety tone at times – the qualities you might hear from Hank Crawford or David Newman in the way they blended their sounds – but the overall feel is leaner and cleaner, too – not many cliches, and a kind of straightforward sound that really shows the new inroads that the LA soul jazz scene was making at the time. The set features a shifting lineup – piano from Amos Trice, Joe Castro, and Ronnie Ball – bass from Leroy Vinnegar and Ben Tucker – and drums from Al Levitt and Billy Higgins – on titles that include a whopping batch of originals like "Teddy's Tune", "Tempo De Blues", "Vintage '57", "Sunset Eyes", and "Takin Off". Plus, this CD's got some great notes, excellent packaging, and even includes 3 unreleased bonus cuts! CD

El RegoEl Rego ... CD
Daptone/Voodoo Funk, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Monumental Afro Soul from El Rego Et Ses Commandos – El Rego's best recordings from the late 60s to early 70s – a beautifully done compilation put together by Daptone and Frank Gossner, the deep digging West African music expert behind Voodoo Funk! Theophile Do-Rego is a legend in his native Benin, essentially credited as the godfather of Benin funk – but to date, he hasn't been celebrated around the world nearly as famously as the superstars of African music hailing from Nigeria and Ghana. That's something that can change really quickly if enough people pick up this truly great compilation of pioneering recordings. Singer El Rego and his excellent, diversely capable band – sax and flute by Baboni Oudou, sax by Michel Diogo, guitar by Oscar De Souza, trumpet by Emmanuel Ganssounou, guitar by Roger Coffi, tumba by Marcelin Kpohonon, additional vocals by Christian Agueh, and bass by band leader Paul Hounnou – take a tighter approach to funky soul. Just a couple tracks on this set roll past the 4 minute mark – which gives it a tighter soul sound, along with some Benin blues and some riveting JB-indebted vocal affections. We owe Voodoo Funk and Daptone big for putting this together! The CD comes with a great booklet featuring notes by Gossner and personal reflections by El Rego. Includes "Feeling You Got", "Zon Dede", "E Nan Mian Duku", "Dkobime", "Dis-Moi Oui", "Djobime", "Hessa" (the centerpiece of the album, 3 minutes of Afro Soul perfection. . .the whole set is great, but this track is unforgettable), "Kpon Fi La", "Do Do Baya", "Vive Le Renouveau", "Achuta", "Cholera" and "Ke Amon-Gbetchea".

El TurroneroNew Hondo ... CD
Belter/Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1980. New Copy ... $16.99
A funky treasure from the Spanish scene at the end of the 70s – a groundbreaking combination of flamenco roots and upbeat funk and soul! The album's got a groove that grabs you right from the start – almost like some of the tighter sound library funk of the European scenet at the time, until the vocals of El Turronero come into the mix, and soar to the skies in a mode that's similar to the famous singer Camaron De La Isla! The vocals are no mere chorus along with the grooves – and instead seem to have a life of their own, especially on some of the clubbier tracks – which might bear some relation to American disco in the instrumentation, but none at all in the overall approach! The mix was a groundbreaking one that represented the new youthful energy of the Spanish scene in the 70s – and a desire to get away from more staid modes laid down by the academy and tradition, while still embracing the roots of their culture. Titles include "Las Penas", "Sufrimientos", "Y La Razon", "Mis Venas", "Tiene Bigotes", "Navegan Mis Pensamientos", and "A Nadie Se La Ha Ocurrio". CD

Roberto FonsecaABUC ... CD
Impulse, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99 14.98
One of the most hard-hitting albums we've ever heard from pianist Roberto Fonseca – a set that deeply digs back into an older Afro-Cuban sound – as you might guess from the title's backward-spelling of Cuba! The music here is surprisingly rich and full – not just Cuban flavoring on jazz piano lines, but a well-conceived, fully-formed approach that mixes Roberto's fierce piano lines with larger percussion and horns, and some very strong acoustic bass from Yandy Martinez – which really drives the harder-grooving songs in a great way! We're often a bit suspicious of projects like this, but we're totally in love with this record – as there's a vibe that's at once respectful of the classics, but totally brand-new – and produced to perfection, without any fakeness or gimmicks at all. Titles include "Soul Guardians", "Sagrado Corazon", "Family", "Tierra Santa", "Tumbao De La Unidad", "Afro Mambo", and "Asere Monina Bonco". CD

Terumasa HinoCity Connection ... LP
Inner City, 1979. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
Smooth funky fusion from Terumasa Hino – an artist who's moving past the more freewheeling sounds of his early years – into a New York groove that really fits the taxi image on the cover! The set has Hino taking a page from some of his more electric contemporaries on the Japanese scene – working with American musicians, in a blend of soul and jazz that adds one more feather to Terumasa's very large musical cap! The album features arrangements and keyboard work from Leon Pendarvis, who did a lot of great uptempo soul in the 70s – plus some especially nice work from Harry Whitaker, who'd worked on some of Roy Ayers' best records – and overall, the sound is similar to Ayers' albums at the time – with a jazz base at the core, some tighter soul-based arrangements, and just a bit of vocals to warm up the sound. Titles include "Send Me Your Feelings", "Samba De La Cruz", "Hino's Reggae", "City Connection", and "Blue Smiles". LP, Vinyl record album

Amazing bossa jazz from Brazilian tenor saxophonist Juarez – a record that moves and grooves with an even harder edge than any American session of the type from the time – with lots of raw percussion that sounds really great next to the soulful tenor! The album's quite early in the years for bossa jazz – and has a wonderfully fluid, wonderfully clear sort of groove – one that's got piano, bass, drums, and loads of great percussion on the bottom – and these freewheeling tenor lines from Juarez that are filled with soul, swing, and imagination! There's way more here than just a soloist blowing lines over rhythms of familiar standards – and the set features titles that include "Julgamento", "Samba De Uma Nota So", "Suplica", "I'll Get By", "Al Di La", "Indiscretion", and "O Menino Desce O Morro".

Hector LavoeRevento (remastered edition) ... CD
Fania, 1985. Used ... $14.99
A beautiful little record from Hector Lavoe – one deepens his sound and emotion, but manages to do so without going into any schmaltzy territory! Some tracks here are full-on groovers, and others are mellower – but even these have a depth of feeling that really commands our attention – a style that's perhaps almost a re-emergence of a new Latin soul aesthetic in the mid 80s – one that's certainly far more Latin than soul, but a new level of expression that's filled with feeling, and which really puts things on the line. Jose Madera, Isidro Infante and Luis Ramirez share arranging credits and Johnny Pacheco directed the recording – with a groove that's somewhere in the trombone-led style of Hector's work with Willie Colon, but which also has some rootsier elements in the guiro and guitar used on the set. Players include Joe Torres on piano, Milton Cardona on percussion, and Lewis Kahn on trombone – and tracks include "De Que Tamano", "Don Fulano De Tal", "La Fama", "Cancer", and "Porque No Puedo Ser Feliz".

A soul record we'd put up there with some of our favorites produced in Chicago during the early 70s – a gospel album from Pastor TL Barrett, but one that's gone on to legendary status among funk and soul collectors over the years! Barrett works here with his Youth For Christ Choir, of Mt. Zion Baptist Church – a south side ensemble that's filled with genuine spirit and passion, aimed towards lofty ideals – but set up with some deep secular soul production touches and instrumentation that keep things razor sharp throughout! The album was cut at the affordable Sound Market Studio – but behind the soaring, spirited lead and chorus vocal arrangements are players supervised by Chess Records sax player and arranger Gene Barge – with other Chess players Richard Evans and Phil Upchurch on the sessions too. Raw drums, grooving organ, and incredible bass lines lay the foundation, but it's the voices that really shine on this completely wonderful, totally essential set! Titles include "Like A Ship", "Wonderful", "It's Me O Lord", "Ever Since", "Nobody Knows", "Joyful Noice", "Medley/Dr. Watts Hymn & The Disciples Prayer" and "Blessed Quietness".

✨✧ VariousPopcorn Exotica – R&B, Soul, & Exotica Rockers From The 50s & 60s ... CD
Croydon Municipal (UK), 1950s/1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Exotica sounds, but with an especially soulful feel – which makes the tracks a perfect choice for this excellent collection! The work is in a special place between exotic instrumentals, teen pop, and deeper soul of the late 50s and early 60s – and most numbers here have that special balance you'll find in the popcorn soul underground – the kind of midtempo steppers that have really been getting a lot of play on dancefloors in recent years – especially when you want to cool off a bit from Northern Soul! As with other titles on the Croydon Municipal label, the track selection is divine – and titles include "The Riddle Of The Papawhos" by Danny Staton, "Call Of The Jungle" by Carl Stevens, "Cafe Bohemian" by The Enchanters, "The Web" by Abie Baker, "Tabou" by The Jokers, "On A Tropical Island" by Anna Valentino, "Little Indian Girl" by Billy & The Moonlighters, "Cat Walk" by Jack Costanzo, and "Arabia" by The Delcos.

✨✧ VariousSoul Men – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack ... CD
Stax, 2008. Used ... Out Of Stock
Classic soul and contemporary cuts – but mostly all numbers that have an older soul mode that fits the spirit of this Stax-styled film! The package is put together in support of the Bernie Mac and Samuel Jackson Soul Men film – and it features some great remakes of older Stax/Volt numbers, done with a surprisingly deep soul groove – plus a few older cuts from the label mixed in for good measure. We're honestly surprised how good most of the new recordings sound (we'll admit we were suspicious at first) – and although we've yet to see the film, we're guessing there may well be more lasting power here in the soundtrack! Titles include "Soul Music" by Anthony Hamilton, "I'm Your Puppet" by John Legend with Samuel Johnson & Bernie Mac, "You Don't Know What You Mean" by Sugarman 3 with Lee Fields, "Water" by Meshell Ndegeocello, "Never Can Say Goodbye (Soul Men redux)" by Isaac Hayes, "Boogie Ain't Nuttin But Getting Down" by Samuel Jackson & Bernie Mac, "Private Number" by Leela James & Chris Pierce, "Just Dropped In" by Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, and "I've Never Found A Girl" by Eddie Floyd.

✨✧ VariousSoul Messages From Dimona ... LP
Numero, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2LP ... Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest compilations we've ever seen – a collection of work by American expatriates living in Israel at the end of the 70s – a hip blend of US funk and Hebrew spirituality! Most of the work here sounds like the best spiritual funk of the 70s – very much in an Earth Wind & Fire tradition of joy, love, and life – played in righteous ensemble mode with a good deal of jazz in the instrumentation alongside funkier rhythms on the bottom! The artists on the set originally hailed from Chicago and Detroit – and there's still strong influence from those scenes, particularly the early 70s sound of the Windy City. If you dig The Pharaohs and Pieces Of Peace, you'll find plenty here to love – and as usual with Numero Records, the whole thing comes with an amazing booklet of notes – the full story of this unique musical diaspora, supported with some great images as well. Titles include "Go To Proclaim", "Equilibrium", "Prince Of Zeal", "Junky Baby", and "Savior In The East" by Soul Messengers; "Holding On" and "Dimona" by Tonistics; "Daniel", "Burn Devil Burn", and "A Place To Be" by Spirit Of Israel & Soul Messengers; and "Hey There" and "Modernization" by Sons Of The Kingdom.

✨✧ VariousStars Of Modern EP ... 7-inch
Modern/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Four rare slices of west coast soul – all hand-picked from the overlooked catalog of Modern Records – a label that's better-known for its R&B of the 50s, but which served up some fantastic soul in the following decade! Jackie Day belts it out of the park on "Before It's Too Late" – an upbeat, positive groover – and Vernon Garrett almost hits Tyrone Davis territory, with his own different tune titled "If I Could Turn Back The Hands Of Time". The Frank Wilson-penned "I've Gotta Get You Back" has a Detroit soul vibe – thanks to sweet lead vocals from Mary Love, and some nicely crafted arrangements – and Johnny Gilliam follows with "You Make Me Feel Like Someone" – a lost sophisticated soul cut that's very much in the best Walter Jackson territory of the time! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousStudio One Soul 2 ... LP
Soul Jazz/Studio One (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Another essential batch of Studio One Soul, every bit as great as the first! 18 more astoundingly great Jamaican renditions of soul and R&B numbers from the hands of Coxsone Dodd and his extraordinary stable of artists, some deeply soulful, and others with a more rootsy, raw grain to them. All flavors of reggae get represented here, but never departing from the soul theme, with dee jay numbers and dark dubs rubbing up against straight up renditions of numbers that are unafraid to pledge their allegiance to the great originals! Tracks include "Swing Easy" by the Soul Vendors, "Choice Of Colours" by the Heptones, "People Make The World Go Round" by Hortense Ellis, "Choice Of Music (Part 2)" by Jackie Mittoo and the Brentford Disco Set, "Thinking" by Ken Boothe, "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by Tony Gregory, "Fool For Love" by Prince Jazzbo, "Fancy Pants" by Jackie Mittoo, and "Darker Block" by the Dub Specialist.

✨✧ VariousWilliam Bell Presents Atlanta Soul – The Peachtree Records Story ... CD
Grapevine (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous batch of southern soul tunes – all originally recorded for the obscure Peach Tree label in Atlanta – an imprint that was quickly lost to time, but who recorded work that was every bit as great as that coming out of Memphis and Muscle Shoals at the time! One factor in the label's high level of quality is the fact that it was started by Stax singer William Bell – obviously a keen eye for great talent, and an important force in helping Peach Tree pick some of the best undiscovered talent at the time! Most of the work on the compilation is by lesser-known Atlanta soul stars – all of whom are great, and most likely lesser-known because Atlanta didn't have the bigger label presence of other southern cities. The set also features a few rare tracks by Mitty Collier, a singer best known for her Chess work of the 60s – and the package features 20 tracks in all, plus some great notes. Titles include "Share What You Got", "Lovin On Borrowed Time", and "What Do You Want" by Mitty Collier; "The Shocker" by Peg Leg Moffett, "Malnutrition" and "Seven Day Lover" by James Fountain, "Let's Take A Look At Our Life" and "It Sure Would Be Nice" by Emory & The Dynamics, "Purple Haze" by Johnny Jones & The King Casuals, "It's Not A Hurtin Thing" by Gorgeous George, "Things That A Lady Ain't Supposed To Do" by The Four Dynamics, and "You Hurt So Good" by Susie Rainey.

Sweet Soul (Japan), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic entry in this ultra-cool series – one that digs through the farther reaches of the global soul underground – to come up with the kinds of tracks that would take you a month of online surfing to find! You'll recognize some of the artists here from full length titles that have circulated over the years, but there's also a number of new names here too – creating a blend of wonderfully contemporary cuts with a rock-solid approach to soul music! Titles include "See You When I Get There" by Avery Sunshine, "Sit Back" by Orly, "Rebirth" by Loretta, "Clear My Name" by Debra Debs, "By Your Side" by Mad Satta, "Blank Page" by Joyce-Lou & JDMC, "Crazy" by Mary Davis Jr, "Joy" by Nao Yoshioka, "Feel Free" by Brandon Williams with Frank McComb, "Hold On" by Raquel Rodriguez, "Work For It" by Shirma Rouse, and "Next To Me" by Rebekka Ling.

✨✧ Roland AlexanderPleasure Bent ... LP
New Jazz/Prestige, 1961. Very Good+ ... $34.99
One of the few albums ever cut by this incredible tenor sax player – a wonderful talent that we only know from a handful of records – all of which we love! This date's got a bold sound that very much lives up to its cover, and Alexander's placement on Prestige's New Jazz label – a vibrant sound that's got elements of the 60s underground of Eric Dolphy or Ken McIntyre, but which also has a more flowing, soulful vibe as well – almost a precursor to later spiritual jazz elements of the 70s. No surprise, the great Marcus Belgrave is in the quintet on trumpet – as is Ronnie Mathews on piano, with rhythm support from Gene Taylor on bass and Clarence Stroman on drums. Almost all tracks are originals – and titles include "I'll Be Around", "Dorman Road", "Lil's Blues", and "Orders To Take Out". LP, Vinyl record album

Terry AllenLubbock (On Everything) (deluxe edition) ... CD
Fate/Paradise Of Bachelors, 1978. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99 18.98
Fantastic sounds from Terry Allen – one of the key underground Texas talents who were helping transform the style of country music in the 70s – and one of the few who maybe never fully got his due! Terry's from the same scene as David Allen Coe, Billy Joe Shaver, and Guy Clark, but his music is much more underground than theirs – maybe only ever designed to be put forth in an intimate club setting, late in the night – where the very conversational style of Allen's songs almost make them feel like barroom musings of a cat who's seen a heck of a lot of life on this planet, but still very able to peer into the souls of those he comes across. This double-length set is Allen's masterpiece – originally issued on a small pressing back in the 70s, and very much an alt-country relic – but from a time when such a thing didn't even exist. Titles include "Cocktails For Three", "High Plains Jamboree", "Amarillo Highway", "Lubbock Woman", "Rendezvous USA", "The Girl Who Danced Oklahoma", "Truckload Of Art", and "The Pink & Black Song". Great reissue – with corrected sound, and a huge booklet of notes on Allen – with essays by David Byrne and others. CD

Gay Feet/Dub Store (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $10.99 19.99
A great showcase for the instrumental talents of Jamaican saxophonist Roland Alphonso – one of the key players who helped transform the sound of the scene in the 60s! But despite Roland's name on the front, the album's more of a group affair overall – directed by Boris Gardinier, and also featuring wicked rocksteady work from Lyn Taitt on guitar and Aubrey Adams on Hammond – both musicians who get almost as much time in the spotlight as Alphonso himself! Titles include a nice noisy take on the Booker T & The MGs tune "Hip Hug Her" – plus "Narata", "Pure Soul", "Wild & Free", "Little Nut Tree", "That's Life", "Sad Song", and "ABC Rocksteady". CD

Chess, Late 40s/Early 50s. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
10 tracks that perfectly illustrate all that was great about Gene Ammons in his early days – a set of singles and 78s recorded for Chess in the late 40s and early 50s, done in a laidback and soulful style that had a tremendous influence on the work of other tenor players at the time! The recording quality is nice and moody, and the tracks hold up surprisingly well over the years – with titles that include "My Foolish Heart", "Goodbye", "Once In A While", "Happiness Is A Thing Called Joe", and "It's The Talk Of The Town".

The groove has a nice raw late night sound – and tracks are pretty long and open-ended. Titles include "Litty Ditty", "Sermonette", "Juggin Around", and "Jim Dog". LP, Vinyl record album

Carl AndersonOn & On ... LP
Epic, 1984. Very Good- ... $4.99
A sweet second set from 80s singer Carl Anderson – a date that's got poise, class, and a heck of a lot of soul! Although a mainstream effort, there's a nice sort of depth to the record – one that shows that Columbia wasn't pitching Anderson as much towards a crossover artist as they were some of their other mid 80s acts – instead, letting him really hang back and do his own thing – in a warmly-swinging mode that still holds up beautifully over the years! The record's a real standout in 80s mainstream male soul – and thanks is certainly due to producer/arrangers John Skip Anderson and Steve Williams, who carefully avoid the commercial side of the spectrum. Titles include "Don't Make Me Wait", "Try", "Keep It Alive", "On & On", "Lately", and "Time To Win". LP, Vinyl record album

Clifton AndersonDecade ... CD
EmArcy, 2009. Used ... $2.99
It's been a decade since the last album as a leader from trombonist Clifton Anderson, but it's definitely been worth the wait – as the player has matured wonderfully over the years, working often with Sonny Rollins, and really finding his sense of space and soul! Anderson's got a very well-developed sound here – one that should easily make him one of the modern greats on his instrument, and one of the few to live up to a legacy started by players like JJ Johnson or Curtis Fuller many years back – tightly inventive improvisation on the trombone, creatively searching for new avenues of expression while also managing to always make things swing! That balance is a rare one, but Anderson's definitely got it – and he's helped ably by group mates who include Kenny Garrett on alto, Eric Wyatt on trenor, Larry Williss on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Al Foster on drums. Titles include "So Wrong About You", "Noble", "Deja-Blue", "If", "Aah Soon Come", "Stubbs", and "Z". CD

A brilliant creative leap for singer/rhymer/producer Anderson .Paak as a solo star – released months after his standout, near show-stealing moments on Dr. Dre's Compton record! .Paak's proved himself a stellar collaborator many times over by the Malibu dropped, and here he proves a stellar host – but make no mistake, Malibu is his show, and a REALLY strong one. Contemporary hip hop soul with grit and heart – with appearances by BJ The Chicago Kid, Robert Glasper, Rapsody, The Game, Talib Kweli and more on the mic, plus guest production by Madlib, Hi-Tek and others.

Earl AnderzaOuta Sight ... CD
Pacific Jazz, 1962. Used ... $6.99
A lost treasure from the glory days of the LA soul jazz bop scene of the early 60s! Alto player Earl Anderza has this crazy tone that's unlike anything we've ever heard – and he plays with a calculated approach to atonality that hints at later work by Ayler and others – but which comes across here a lot more straight ahead. Unlike Ayler, Anderza is backed by a tight soul jazz combo that includes stunning work by pianist Jack Wilson, one of our all-time favorite players – working here on both straight piano and electric harpsichord – which has a very crazy sound! Other players include George Morrow and Jimmy Bond on bass, plus Donald Dean on drums – and titles include "Blues Baroque", "Freeway", "Benign", and a great version of Wilson's modal classic "Outa Sight"! Plus, this great CD reissue also includes 3 bonus cuts that weren't on the orignal album! CD

Dawn/Esoteric (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A very cool quartet from the British jazz/rock years – but one who were a lot more jazz-based than some of their contemporaries! These guys are all instrumental, and although a number of their tunes are familiar rock standards from the late 60s, they don't play them like rock tunes at all – and instead used them as freewheeling vehicles for solo exploration –r eally stretching out in a mix of acoustic and electric modes that's mighty nice! Leader Mike McNaught plays both Fender Rhodes and acoustic piano – and the group also features Daryl Runswick on bass, Mike Travis on drums and percussion, and Jim Philip on some especially great flute, tenor, and soprano sax – the last of which really soars up beautifully next to the Rhodes! The set is maybe a bit in the mode of some of John Klemmer's electrified work from the same time, but also more British too – although not without a fair degree of soul on the keyboards. Titles include "Dreams", "Rosecrans Boulevard", "Something", "Dear Prudence", and "Childhood Room". CD

Average White BandSoul Searching ... LP
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good- ... $2.99
Sublime mid 70s work from The Average White Band – and a record that really has the group deepening their groove a bit – moving past the heavier funk of their roots, into some mellower grooves that are totally great! There's a great undercurrent of jazz in some of the playing here – a real consciousness for clever changes, hip instrumental flourishes, and some other fusion-inspired moments – although all delivered with an understated quality that's mighty nice. The feel's a bit like The Headhunters on their second album, or some of the great Wayne Henderson groups on Fantasy – a great mix of jazz funk and soul that makes the record one of our favorites by the group. Titles include "Sunny Days", "Digging Deeper", "Love Your Life", "Queen Of My Soul", and the stellar mellow "A Love Of Your Own". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the heavy inner sleeve. Cover has some wear.)
