✨✧ Thievery CorporationTemple Of I & I ... LP
ESL, 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99 24.99
Maybe one of the most sharp-edged albums in years from Thievery Corporation – if not ever – thanks to the presence of a fair bit of hip hop guest stars, in a large roster of talent that includes Mr Lif, Raquel Jones, Zee, Notch, Lou Lou Ghelichkhani, Shana Halligan, Elin Melgarejo, and Puma! The duo definitely have that classic approach to a groove that you'd know from their earlier work, but they've also moved way past the bossa, easy, and soundtrack references of before – to modes that embrace more 70s funk and soul, as well as vintage hip hop production – plus some Jamaican currents that you might guess from the album's title. Tracks include "Ghetto Matrix", "Strike The Root", "Love Has No Heart", "Lose To Find", "Weapons Of Distraction", "Fight To Survive", "Babylon Falling", and "Drop Your Guns". LP, Vinyl record album

Tomasz Stanko & Adam MakowiczTomasz Stanko & Adam Makowicz Unit Featuring Czeslaw Bartkowski ... LP
Be! (Germany), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A fantastic electric session from the 70s Polish scene – a record that not only features freewheeling trumpet from Tomasz Stanko, and sweet Fender Rhodes from Adam Mackowicz, but also includes some very inventive work on drums and percussion from the great Czelaw Bartkowski! All three players are at the top of their game here – artists who have a strong knowledge of the outside territory of jazz, but also often work a bit more inside – so that their music here can be open and exploratory, but also come back to more soulful, swinging territory too! Most tracks are long, and have the sort of textural energy you'd know especially from Stanko's work – and titles include "Countdown", "Unit", "Solar", "Matce", "Ballad For Randi Hultin", "Zaduma", and "Pony Lungz".

✨✧ Fred Wesley & The Horny HornsSay Blow By Blow Backwards ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The second classic album that Fred Wesley cut with the legendary Horny Horns – an all-star group that he led after parting company with James Brown and closing up the JBs! The group's got Fred upfront, great solos by Maceo Parker, and production by Bootsy and George Clinton – making for a sound that's a perfect all-around summation of 70s funk – lots of deep bass, tight horns, and some very sharply produced rhythm – all holding beautifully to the groove with some of the best focus and tightness that Wesley got in his years after the dissolution of the JBs! The vibe is a really great blending of modes – and titles include "Half A Man", "We Came To Funk Ya", "Just Like You", and "Circular Motion". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lesley GoreI'll Cry If I Want To ... LP
Mercury, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful early album from Lesley Gore – and a set that's got a lot more to offer than just the famous title track! Lesley's just a young gal at this time, but she sings in this lusty, personal style that's a lot richer than most female pop of the period – and which also shows the way that, during the mid 60s, there was a gentle blurring of the line between soul and rock, especially in material of this nature. Gore has a way of making the tunes hit home with her honesty and easygoing range – even when the numbers are familiar – and arrangements by the great Claus Ogerman also keep things fresher than the usual pop pap. Titles include "It's My Party", "Just Let Me Cry", "I Would", "Judy's Turn To Cry", "The Party's Over", "No More Tears", and "Cry Me A River". Pretty weepy themes – but a much wider range of presentation! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Elvis PresleyWay Down In The Jungle Room ... LP
RCA, Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A collection that's almost worth it for the images on the cover – shots of the fantastic Jungle Room at the Elvis Presley mansion at Graceland – which is where all the music within was recorded! The set beautifully documents some of Elvis' last recording sessions – done back home at Memphis, and even more at home at Graceland – where the Jungle Room was transformed into a studio for a series of laidback recordings that ended up on the albums Moody Blue and From Elvis Presley Boulevard. Yet the charm of the sessions is way more than the famous tunes that were released from those days – as this excellent package presents a wealth of outtakes that show Elvis and the gang working out the tunes in a casual way, and bantering back and forth with all the wit we'd expect from The King. Much of the material is in a country sort of vein – which seems to open up the "at home" vibe even more on the outtakes – and the backing is small combo, and nicely relaxed – avoiding any tendency to make the music sound too slick for the 70s. 2LP set features 17 outtake recordings with all the cool stops, starts, and conversation. Titles include "I'll Never Fall In Love Again", "Moody Blue", "The Last Farewell", "Solitaire", "It's Easy For You", "Way Down", "Hurt", "Danny Boy", "She Thinks I Still Care (alternate)", "Bitter They Are Harder They Fall", "Pledging My Love", and "For The Heart".

✨✧ Leslie UggamsWhat's An Uggams? ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
Star of stage and screen Leslie Uggams lends her vocal talents to this late 60s easy effort – with arrangements by Jack Cortner, Peter Matz, and Pat Williams. Williams, of course, manages to keep things groovy – and even though Leslie's not much of a singer in our bag, she's still ok here, in kind of a pop soul sort of way. Plus, Lieber & Stoller produced the record – and also contributed a number of original tracks, which makes the record a bit fresher than it might be normally. Titles include "Is That All There Is", "Just For Today", "The Wrong Man", "Some Cats Know", "Flying", and "Let the Music Play". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & green Broadway label pressing. Cover has a cutout notch, a bit of pen, and a bent corner.)

Kali BahluKali Bahlu Takes The Forest Children On A Journey Of Cosmic Remembrance ... LP
World Pacific/Merlins Nose (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... About February 24, 2017
A weird set of sitar and bongos backed sing-speak about gurus, devil gods, leprechauns, elves, opium, the wind, hippie boys and other oddball psychedelia enhanced storytelling from Kali,The Gypsy Star Child! We don't know a thing about Kali – she has a cute, girly-girl, Anytown, USA voice, but the hippie fantasy, pseudo spiritual storytelling is weird, yet genuinely committed – with droning, Eastern-tinged psych backdrops. Includes "A Game Called Who Am I", "Cosmic Remembrance", "A Cosmic Telephone Call", "From The Angel Liesle & The Buddha" and "How Can I Tell My Guru?" LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ George BensonGood King Bad ... LP
CTI, 1975. Very Good Gatefold ... $2.99
Sweet 70s funk from George Benson – an album that's a bit smoother than some of his earlier work, but still free from the commercial polish of his later hits! Maestro David Matthews is at the helm for this session – and most numbers have a full backing from players who include some of the best of the CTI/Kudu generation – including Ronnie Foster and Bobby Lyle on keyboards, Joe Farrell on flute, Fred Wesley on trombone, Eric Gale on rhythm guitar, Dave Friedman on vibes, and Steve Gadd on drums – who manages to kick in a nicely funky undercurrent, even on some of the mellower numbers. George's guitar is filled with warmly chromatic hues – gliding away nicely on titles that include the slow funky "Em", plus "Siberian Workout", "Shell Of A Man", "Hold On I'm Coming", "One Rock Don't Make No Boulder", and "Theme From Good King Bad".

Girma Beyene & Akale WubeEthiopiques Volume 30 – Mistakes On Purpose – (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Buda/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99
A fantastic contemporary performance from Girma Beyene – a key artist in the golden age of Ethiopian, working here with the excellent Akale Wube quintet! Girma's one of a number of singers who went into exile during the changing political climate of the 70s – but in recent years, he's returned to his homeland, and has really reaffirmed his role in music – coming across here with a sound that's maybe even deeper and more sophisticated than his earlier recordings, and somewhat jazzier too! The group have a nicely understated approach – classic Ethiopian jazz and funk modes, but never overdone – so that when Girma slides into the groove, he really gets the right sort of space – which allows for some especially great presentation of his amazing vocals. Yet the set's also got some great instrumental tracks, too – long numbers that really make a great showcase for the saxophone work of Etienne De La Sayette and trumpet of Paul Bouclier. Florian Pellissier guests on organ on three tracks, and Fender Rhodes on one more – and titles include "Bemelkesh Aydelem", "Ene Negn Bay Manesh", "Enken Yelelebesh", "Melewetsesh Menew", "Wub Nat", and "Meslogn Neber".

One of three albums this group recorded at the Free Music Market in Berlin in August of 1971 – all of which feature the trio joined by Albert Mangelsdorff on trombone. The album features two long tracks – "Couscouss De La Mauresque" and "Wenn Mein Schatzlein Auf Die Pauke Haut" – each of which run for a side apiece, and the trio of firey youngsters drives Mangesldorff into some of his best free playing on record from the early 70s.

James BrownEverybody's Doin' The Hustle & Dead On The Double Bump ... LP
Polydor, 1975. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Forget the "hustle" and "bump" in the title – as the set's not a disco cash-in set by the Godfather – and instead is an overlooked funky gem from the 70s! The set still follows strongly in the best modes of the early 70s – with that sharp JB-styled groove underneath – and in a way, the record's bit like Breaking Bread was to that group's great run – maybe a bit more focused, and slightly more upbeat – but still with a righteous approach to funk overall! David Matthews conducts, and players include Fred Wesley on trombone, Maceo Parker on alto, St Clair Pickney on tenor, and both Charles Sherrell and Leon Pendarvis on clavinet – and a few tracks are remakes of older numbers, nestled next to some newer gems. The set features the standout funky cuts "Your Love", which has a great break at the beginning, and "Superbad Superslick" – and other titles include "Hustle", "Turn On The Heat & Build Some Fire", "Calm & Cool", and a remake of "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag".

James BrownSex Machine Today (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Polydor/Elemental (Spain), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A great little album by The Godfather – one that takes the core James Brown sound of the "Sex Machine" generation, and serves it up with a tighter mid 70s twist! Fred Wesley is still very firmly at the helm of the band – and there's a power here that's equal to the later JBs work on the Breakin Bread album. The grooves are nicely free of the "fast funk" syndrome that crept into James' work a few years later as his answer to disco – and are super tight all the way through! The LP includes a 12 minute remake of "Sex Machine" that's worth the price alone – plus the funk cuts "Dead On It", "Problems", and "Deep In It". Nice stuff – and plenty of funkiness to go around!
