Computa Games feat K-MaxxDo Your Thing/Feel Right 2 Nite ... 7-inch
Austin Boogie Crew, 2015. New Copy (pic cover)... $8.99
Wicked old school electro – and a single that definitely lives up to the look of its cover! "Do Your Thing" has lots of bass pedal riffing at the bottom – flipping up a groove that's topped by some sweet vocals from K-Maxx, who's got a nicely non-electric style of delivery! Moogy keyboards flutter around the lyrics nicely – and the flipside features "Feel Right 2nite", which bumps along with more of a Zapp-ish vibe, including some vocoder vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited numbered edition of 750 copies.)

✨✧ Detroit EmeraldsDo Me Right/You Want It You Got It (plus bonus track) ... CD
Westbound (UK), 1971/1972. New Copy ... $11.99 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

Bill LeeDo The Right Thing – Original Score ... LP
Columbia, 1989. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A wonderful set of ambitious soul jazz tracks – the score to the film Do The Right Thing, written by Spike's dad Bill Lee! The album's a lot more obscure than the one that included all the vocal songs used in the film – and honestly, has always really been eclipsed by that one because of all the hits it contained. But Bill's work for Spike is, as always, totally great – very rich, warm, and filled with an emotional depth that always makes us wonder why more folks never used him for soundtrack work. The music is by a core group that includes Kenny Barron, Terence Blanchard, Donald Harrison, and Branford Marsalis – augmented by strings on a number of tracks, especially at the beginning, where there's kind of a Copeland-esque "break of day" feel. Titles include "How Long", "Magic Eddie Prince Ain't Niggers", "We Love Roll Call Y'all", "Mookie Goes Home", "Tawana", and "Wake Up Finale". LP, Vinyl record album

Public Enemy, EU & OthersDo The Right Thing – Soundtrack ... LP
Motown, 1989. Near Mint- ... $16.99
The classic soundtrack to Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing – lead, of course, by Public Enemy's "Fight The Power" – and beyond that is a pretty wonderful, and not always as intense cross-section of some of the finer urban soul and New Jack Swing, circa '89, breezy vocal-centric R&B, a touch of Latin and Afro-Carribbean pop. The Bed-Stuy melting pot bubbles over to tragic consequences in the film, but the diverse soundtrack is plenty harmonious, and sounds fresh to this day. Includes "My Fantasy" by Teddy Riley featuring Guy, "Never Explain Love" by Al Jarreau, "Party Hearty" by EU, "Tu Y Yo" by Ruben Blades, "Can't Stand It" by Steel Pulse and "Don't Shoot Me" by Take 6.

✨✧ Elizabeth ShepherdHeavy Falls The Night (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Do Right (Canada), 2010. Used ... $6.99
A wonderful third album from Elizabeth Shepherd – possibly her best yet – taking the stripped down, yet adventurous jazzy soul intimacy of the debut and the deeper, dreamier sound of her Parkdale album, and coming up with a lovely, unique and wholly excellent sound on Heavy Falls The Night! There are some heavier moods at play, but, the production and arrangements have a light touch, leaving plenty of space from Elizabeth's lovely voice to pull you in. Shepherd handles most of the production and all of the arrangements, with one track produced by the DJ Mitsu The Beats, his jazzy dancefloor funk groove well suited for the style! Elizabeth sings and plays keys, with Ross Macintyre and Scott Kemp on bass, Roman Tome on percussion, Colin Kingsmore on drums and percussion, with some guests and guitar on just a couple of tunes. Why Elisabeth hadn't yet become a superstar by the time of this album's release is a mystery and an injustice! Titles include "What Else", "The Taking", "Heavy Falls The Night", "Numbers", "Seven Bucks". "Pne More Day", "A Song For Dinah Washington", "High", "It's Coming", "On The Insufficiency Of Words" and "Danny's Song". CD

Soul MotivatorsFree To Believe (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Do Right (Canada), 2015. New Copy ... $8.99
Psych-tinged funk from Toronto's Soul Motivators – with a gritty, soul reverent sound you can believe in! The promising couple of 45 cuts we heard in the lead-up to this strong full length debut were a solid indicator that this 9-piece group could deliver the goods, and sure enough, it's a genuine win! The core elements of horns, drums & percussion, snapping bass grooves, guitar and keyboards walk the line between hard funk grit and precision interplay – feeling more like the work of a veteran unit than a debut album. Lead singer Lydia Persaud brings in a deeper soul integrity, and there's lots of room in their songs for standout solo opportunities for the excellent band. Strong stuff! Includes "Free To Believe", "Love Thing", "Street Level", "Baby I'm Gone", "La Garonne", "Dr Know It All", "Hang On In There", "Working It Out", "Until The Sun Goes Down" and more – plus the bonus tracks "Throw The Bones" and "Walk Away".

✨✧ Cookers QuintetCookers Quintet Vol 1 ... CD
Do Right (Canada), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet little combo who definitely live up to their name – and work here in a very old school approach to jazz! The group's got a great groove right from the start – maybe not as full-on modal as Five Corners Quintet, but somewhere in a same space – but they also don't just let the rhythms determine their solo expressions – and really step out here in a great range of colors and tones! Key solos come from Ryan Oliver on tenor and Tim Hamel on trumpet – and the group also features Richard Whiteman on piano, Alex Coleman on bass, and Morgan Childs on drums – all great players who also wrote all the material for the album as well. The sound is a bit in keeping with the retro look of the cover – but is never just a retro gimmick, and instead has a classically well-crafted jazz appeal. Titles include "The Ramble", "Blues To Booker", "Obligatory Blues", "Mudbug Shuffle", "Open Air", "The Fork Test", and "See You Next Thursday". CD

Ruby AndrewsBlack Ruby (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Zodiac/KTI (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $23.99
A hell of a great record from Ruby Andrews – a Chicago soul singer who started out sweet, but comes on hard and heavy on this righteous classic from the start of the 70s! The record's got a badass vibe you never would have expected from Andrews a few years before – with tremendous vocals, and these arrangements that are right on the money – and which pack a solid funky punch into nearly every tune! Cleveland Eaton, Mike Terry, and Burgess Gardner provide the great backings – but Ruby's the clear star of the show, and works here in a deep soul style that blows us away every time we hear the record – and we've been listening to this one for more than a few decades. Wonderful all the way through – and with titles that include the funky classic "You Made A Believer Out Of Me", plus "Good N Plenty", "My Love Is Comin Down", "You Ole Boo Boo You", and "Overdose Of Love". CD features 6 more bonus tracks – including "Away From The Crowd", "You Got To Do The Same Thing", "Wonderful Nite", "All The Way", "Where Have You Gone", and "I Let Him Take Me In His Arms". CD

Neil Ardley's New Jazz OrchestraCamden 70 ... CD
Dusk Fire (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $11.99
A never-issued live set from the legendary Brit leader Neil Ardley – recorded right during his classic years, and featuring a host of leading jazz luminaries of his scene! The material features both original compositions by Neil, plus some surprising other inclusions as well – all wrapped together in some of the most creative jazz orchestra modes of the UK scene of the time, and played by a cast that includes Henry Lowther and Harry Beckett on trumpet, Mike Gibbs on trombone, Dick Heckstall-Smith on tenor and soprano sax, Barbara Thompson on alto and flute, Frank Jellett on vibes, and Dave Greenslade on Hammond and electric piano. The horns are mighty heavy – blowing both with a nice sense of force on the heads, but also allowing some good space for players to really stretch out and do their thing – and although Ardley's got a definite modern bent to his vision here, there's also plenty of stone groovy moments too. Titles include "Rope Ladder To The Moon", "Tanglewood", "Stratusfunk", "Dusk Fire", "Naima", "Rebirth", "Study", "Ballad", and "Le Dejeuner Sur L'Herbe". CD

Banana Splits/BeaglesWe're The Banana Splits/Here Come The Beagles ... CD
Hollywood, Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Way more than just another kiddie soundtrack – or an album for a childish TV show – as the set's a surprisingly groovy little record, almost Sunshine Pop in its best moments! We're not sure about the nature of the players or the singers – but arranger Jack Eskew put the whole thing together with a bouncy, bubbly groove that rivals the best pop-psych work of the late 60s on labels like Kapp or Uni – right down to the perfect combination of fuzzy guitars and organ in the instrumentation. Titles include "This Spot", "I'm Gonna Find A Cave", "We're The Banana Splits", "In New Orleans", "Toy Piano Medley", "Don't Go Away Go Go Girl", and the classic "Tra La La Song". CD also features bonus Splits songs – "The Very First Kid On My Block", "The Beautiful Calliope", "Let Me Remember You Smiling", and "Soul". The CD also features the album Here Comes The Beagles – from a very Splits-like show that features another group of singing animals! The Beagles aren't The Beatles, but they definitely have a strong Brit Invasion feel in their music – a UK way with a melody that's mixed with a few sunny Cali pop touches too. Very 60s, very groovy, and way better than just a kiddie record – with tunes that include "What More Can I Do", "Be The Captain", "I Wanna Capture You", "Indian Love Dance", and "You Satisfy". CD

Banda Black RioMaria Fumaca (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner/Polysom (Brazil), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
An excellent album by one of the greatest Brazilian funk bands ever – a wonderful blend of funk, jazz, and soul – and a set that rivals any of the best work coming from the US at the time! These guys are right on the money right from the start – moving through sharp changes with effortless ease, yet never in a way that's too slick or commercial – kind of like that perfect balance that Kool & The Gang hit for just a few records in the mid 70s – but with more of a Brazilian feel overall. Jazzy licks abound – and the keyboards, guitar, and horns are just great – but the set's also got some more regional percussion, too – which really rounds out the record wonderfully. The grooves all have a really universal appeal – essential for any fan of funky sounds – and titles include "Mr Funky Samba", "Junia", "Casa Forte", "Na Baixa Do Sapateiro", "Lelbon Via Vaz Lobo", "Baia", "Maria Fumaca", and "Metalurgia".

Arnaldo BaptistaArnaldo Baptista Box (Loki/Elo Perdido/Faremos Uma Noitada Excelente/Singin Alone/Let It Bed) (5CD set) ... CD
Philips/Canal (Brazil), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 5 CDs ... $49.99 102.99
A special box set of work from this key member of Os Mutantes – one that looks at all the many facets of his compelling solo career! The first album in the set is the landmark Loki – an incredibly crazy and messed-up album of tracks cut by Arnaldo Baptista after the breakup of Os Mutantes. Baptista wrote all of the songs, except for one, which lists "Os Mutantes" in the credits – and the tracks feature his booze-drenched vocals right up front, with backing by piano, and some very theatrical arrangements that are quite different than the work of his earlier Tropicalia group. The record is tough to describe – sort of a mix of early 70s Euro singer/songwriter trends, particularly those of the Saravah scene – with maybe a bit of post-psyche rock, with piano as the most dominant instrument in the mix. There's a surprisingly personal feel to the whole thing – and titles include "Uma Pessoa So", "Nao Estou Nem Ai", "Desculpe", "E Facil", and "Navegar De Novo". The package also features Singin Alone, from 1982 – a very spare, very boozy solo LP by this ex-Mutantes member. Most of the tracks have him sitting at the piano, singing along in very raspy vocals, with most of the lyrics in English. The record is very different from the Mutantes records, but is an excellent bit of work in the rock singer-songwriter tradtion (which might here include Leonard Cohen or Tom Waits, as comparable examples.) We don't really know what Baptista's up to at this point, but the record is a haunting solo work, with many great tracks like "Jesus, Come Back To Earth", "I Fell In Love One Day", and "O Sol". Next is Elo Perdido – a collaboration with Patrulha Do Espacao - followed by Let It Bed, a more recent album that shows that Baptista had developed into a surprisingly sensitive songwriter. But maybe most amazing is Faremos Uma Noita Da Excelente – a live set from 1978 that also features work from Patrulha Do Espacao – and which wasn't issued at the time! CD

Bill BarronHot Line – The Tenors Of Bill Barron/Booker Ervin (Savoy Jazz – with bonus track) ... LP
Savoy, 1962. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A stunner from Bill Barron! The set's one of the few rare sides that Barron cut as a leader during the early 60s – and it ranks right up there with work by Ornette Coleman or Joe Harriott for sheer raw modern power! The group's a quintet – with Barron and Booker Ervin on tenor, Larry Ridley on bass, Kenny Barron on piano, and Andrew Cyrille on drums – and the warm interplay between Ridley's bass and Barron's piano provides a striking contrast to the sharp-edged horn of Barron and the adventurous drumming of Cyrille. Tracks chop around in a modal groove, but still also retain a bit of soul jazz flair – and like all of Barron's best work, they never forget how to swing, and swing they do! Titles include "Bill's Boogie", "Groovin", "A Cool One", "Playhouse March", and "Work Song". 80's pressing, with previously unissued track "Billie's Bounce". LP, Vinyl record album

Count Basie with Oliver NelsonAfrique (Doctor Jazz) ... LP
Flying Dutchman/Doctor Jazz, 1971. Very Good+ ... $7.99
One of the deepest albums that Count Basie ever recorded – thanks to some great arrangements and backings by Oliver Nelson! Nelson's working in the same groovy mode he used with Jimmy Smith's excellent Verve sessions – and although the record doesn't have the same sort of star soloist in the lead, the Basie band members do a great job of trading off solos over the enigmatic backings crafted by Nelson. A number of the tracks have a Latin flair – and work on electric bass grooves that push the set farther than the usual Basie outing of the time – with a flavor that's right up there with the hippest Nelson sessions for Flying Dutchman, and maybe even a bit like spiritual ensemble material too. Titles include versions of Albert Ayler's "Love Flower" and Pharoah Sanders' "Japan", plus originals by Nelson like "Afrique", "Kilimanjaro", and "African Sunrise". LP, Vinyl record album

Marlin/Essential, 1978. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A classic album of stripped-down disco grooves – featuring spacey keyboard work from Boris Midney, and lots of heavy congas by Larry Washington! The real focus here is the instrumental work – those long, stretched-out grooves that seemed to be the trademark of the Miami scene in the 70s – especially given the use of percussion here. And although the vocals are mostly of the chorus type, they do a good enough job to emphasize the grooves – and help get the tracks moving forward in all the right ways! Tracks are all quite long – and titles include "Make That Feeling Come Again", "Ah Do It", "That's The Meaning", and "Boogie Motion". CD

BlackbyrdsAction/Better Days ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Two of the later Blackbyrds LPs on one CD! Action is a great little sleeper from the Blackbyrds – a record that never gets as much due as their earlier records that have a hard funky feel, but offer instead a tasty batch of smoother jazz funk numbers that show the group still continuing to grow. Donald Byrd's still at the production helm – and the band's got a nice spacey sound that almost reflects directions that other funk groups, like Kool & The Gang, were taking at the time. The best case of this is the massive cut "Mysterious Vibes", a slow jazzy stepper that was sampled to great fame a few years back – but you can also hear it on the cuts "Supernatural Feeling", "Soft & Easy", and "Dreaming About You". Better Days is filled with sweet warm grooves from the mighty Blackbyrds – a set that has George Duke working with the group, giving them some of the electric vibe of his own great work! The sound is less sharply funky than the early days of the group, but still mighty nice – and titles include "Do It Girl", "Love Don't Strike Twice", "What We Have Is Right", and "What's On Your Mind".

One of the first great projects from genius producer Phil Spector – a soul trio that features one guy and two gals, all working in a style that's a virtual blueprint for countless pop to come! The album updates the older doo wop mode to a sweeter 60s style – focusing mostly on the girls in the lead, and using Bob's vocals mostly to underpin, and create a nice bottom in the harmonies. But while the vocals are great, the overall production is maybe even better – all-star handling at the Gold Star studios, with Phil on production, Jack Nitzsche on arrangements, and sharp backing from the Wrecking Crew at their prime. Titles include "My Heart Beat A Little Faster", "Why Do Lovers Break Each Others Hearts", "Jimmy Baby", "Dear", "I Shook The World", "Dr Kaplan's Office", and "Everything's Gonna Be All Right". CD

Taka's got an approach here that's common for the time, but also a cut above – an approach to disco that's more soulful overall, and which has a bit more staying power than throwaway pop for the clubs. The album features some good help in the right places – including Chaka Khan on backing vocals, Gary Bartz on alto sax, and McKinley Jackson on some of the arrangements – all forces that nicely match the soulful impulse of Taka's vocals. Titles include "Troubled Waters", "Night Dancin", "Red Hot", "Dance Like You Do At Home", "Cloud Dancer", "You're My Everything", and "Dance Baby Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1976. Very Good+ ... $4.99
An excellent smooth soul groover from Johnny Bristol! The album has Johnny stepping into a more sophisticated groove than he used on his early 70s albums for MGM – mixing together styles that sound a lot like those used by artists like Leroy Hutson or Leon Ware at the time, a mix of well-produced backings with just the right touch of strings, keyboards, and tight rhythms. Johnny's voice has a bit rootsier quality than you might be used to for this sort of album – which makes for an even more unique sound, especially on the mellower cuts. Tracks include "Do It To My Mind", "Have Yourself A Good Time Thinkin' Bout The Good Times", "You Turned Me On To Love", "I Sho Like Groovin' With Ya", and "She Came Into My Life". Nice one!

A rare gem from the legendary Gustav Brom – the Czech bandleader you might know for his famous records in the 60s, or his moon-trip set for MPS – sounding equally groovy here on this Supraphon album from 1976! There's a slight touch of electricity in the mix – some specially nice Fender Rhodes and moog, which are layered in with Brom's wonderful formation of horns in the group – this shifting palette of trumpet, tenor, trombone, and reed elements – used at a level that's right up there with the best MPS groups of the time, and some of the Clarke Boland Big Band records too! But this time around, the rhythms are maybe even more powerful than usual – downright funky at some key moments, and plenty groovy at all the rest – and the tracks are longer, and often allow for some deeper passages than usual for Gustav – although to be fair, his sounds are often pretty darn deep!

The "revolution" in the title is certainly well-placed – because right from the start, James Brown was out to forever change the face of music in America! If you only know James from his later funk recordings, or even his big 60s hits, you'll find plenty to be amazed at here – as these early King/Federal recordings have a really raw sound that blends together 50s R&B styles with all those unique vocal, instrumental, and rhythmic twists that James was experimenting with at the time – sometimes with backing vocals from The Famous Flames, sometimes just with the Godfather out front on his own! The collection brings together a few dozen titles from these great early years – with titles that include "No No No No", "Hold My Baby's Hand", "Begging Begging", "I Want You So Bad", "Got To Cry", "Good Good Lovin", "I Know It's True", "I'll Go Crazy", "You've Got The Power", "Wonder When You're Coming Home", "That Dood It", "I Walked Alone", "Love Or A Game", "Chonnie On Chon", "Just Won't Do Right", and the classics "Think" and "Please Please Please".

James performs a bit on the record – but the set also features some great instrumental sides from the JBs, who get almost half the set – plus a few songs each by Bobby Byrd and Lyn Collins – two of the greatest singers to ever work with The Godfather! There's also some great introductions by Danny Day – in that usual hip style we love from James' concert recordings – and titles include "Wine Spot", "From The Back Side", "Hot Pants Road", "Honky Tonk", "Pass The Peas", and "Gimme Some More" by The JBs – plus "I Know You Got Soul", "If Loving You Is Wrong I Don't Want To Be Right", and "Keep On Doin What You're Doin" by Bobby Byrd; and "Do Your Thing", "Think", and "I'll Take You There" by Lyn Collins. LP, Vinyl record album

Brute ForceBrute Force ... LP
Embryo, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99
The one and only album by this righteous funky combo from Ohio! Although Brute Force were an American group of the late 60s, they've got a sound that brings in traces of the African rhythms that were bubbling under at the time – similar to some of the best London groups of the post-colonial years, like Cymande, Demon Fuzz, or Asiko. There's often a jagged and jazzy style on the bottom of the grooves, topped with brighter horn flourishes, and combined with a vocal approach that has some slight folksy touches – very hip, progressive, and as righteous as you'd expect from the cover! Sonny Sharrock sits in on some tracks, and the titles include "Some Kind Of Approval", "Doubt", "Ye Le Wa", "Do It Right Now", "The Deacon", and "Monster". LP, Vinyl record album
