Average White BandAll The Pieces – The Complete Studio Recordings 1973 to 2003 (19CD set) ... CD
Edsel (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 19 CDs ... $52.99
A huge run of funky soul from The Average White Band – a group who were already well above average at the start, then just got better and better as their music grew during the 70s! The package is the first we've ever seen to honor the group in this way – and includes all their important studio albums, plus lesser-known gems from later years – and 2CDs' worth of rare material too – all in a box with a special 52 page book! Albums include Show Your Hand, How Sweet Can You Get, Average White Band, Put It Where You Want It, Cut The Cake, Soul Searching, Person To Person, Benny & Us, Warmer Communications, Feel No Fret, Shine, Volume VIII, Cupid's In Fashion, Aftershock, Soul Tattoo, and Living In Colour – plus those 2CDs of bonus alternates and rarities! 197 tracks in all – and very nicely done.

Chairmen Of The Board/General Johnson/Harrison KenGive Me Just A Little Bit More Time/In Session/Generally Speaking/Hypnotic Music (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Invictus/Edsel (UK), Early 70s. Used 2CD ... $11.99
Two group albums, two solo projects, and some bonus tracks as well! First up is the classic Give Me Just A Little More Time – a landmark album of 70s soul – and perhaps the most enduring full LP by this enigmatic harmony group! The title says it all – as the record starts off with the group's huge hit "Give Me Just A Little More Time", a totally compelling number with a scattershot beat, and some wonderful lead vocals from the always-great General Johnson. Also features the group's cover of Clarence Carter's "Patches" – which was a big single for them – plus the tracks "Bravo Hooray", "Since The Days Of Pigtails & Fairytales", "Come Together", "You've Got Me Dangling on a String" and "Tricked & Trapped". In Session is the second album by the group – and although the title, photos on the front, and liner notes all make it appear to be a live album, it's actually a studio session, with the same great Holland-Dozier-Holland production as the first! The album includes an amazing track called "All We Need Is Understanding", a jaunty groover with this funky organ at the beginning, and some killer vocals by General Johnson. It's one of the group's best tracks ever – and the record has plenty of other nice ones – like "Pay To The Piper", "Hanging On To A Memory", "When Will She Tell Me She Needs Me", and "Chairmen Of The Board". Plus, the record includes their great version of "Patches", which they wrote for Clarence Carter – already on their first album, but featured here again for some strange reason! Next is Generally Speaking, a great solo album by General Johnson – done with some wicked Holland Dozier Holland production, at a level that almost makes Johnson sound heavier here than in his work with his more famous group! The vocals have that same sort of crazy pinched sound that he had with The Chairmen, and there's loads of great original tunes here – plus a few Chairmen numbers, thrown into the mix, in the way that things sometimes got repeated on the Invictus label. The grooves are nice and bouncy – and cuts include "God's Gift To Man", "Every Couple's Not A Pair", "I'll Never Get Tired Of You", "Mary Lou Thomas", and "My Credit Didn't Go Through". Last up is the totally bizarre Harrison Kennedy solo set, Hypnotic Music – a weirdly tripped-out album that's definitely off towards the farther reaches of the HDH sound of the early 70s. Some cuts are fuller soul, but others almost have a folksy overtone – making for a strange, but compelling mix of music – almost in Rodriguez territory. Titles include "Night Comes Day Goes", "Gimme A Glass Of Water", "Hypnotic Music", "Closet Queen", and "Up The Organization". CD features General Johnson bonus tracks – "Savannah Lady", "I'm In Love Darling", and both vocal and instrumental versions of "Only Time Will Tell". CD

CloversFive Cool Cats ... LP
Atlantic/Edsel (UK), Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
An astounding collection of great numebers by the legendary Clovers – a group whose sound was a key force in transforming Atlantic Records during the 50s! The Clovers were an incredibly tight, incredibly consistent quintet – possessed of a rich talent for both sweet ballads and raspier groovers, in a way that helped push vocal harmonies much more strongly into an R&B mode than some of the efforts of groups who came before. This 16 track set features many of the group's best numbers from their Atlantic years – not just the few familiar hits, but a great batch of lesser-known tracks that show just how strong The Clovers sound was overall. Titles include "Devil Or Angel", "One Mint Julep", "Lovey Dovey", "Your Cash Ain't Nothin But Cash", "Nip Sip", "Good Lovin'", "I Got My Eyes On You", "Down In The Alley", "Don't You Know I Love You", "Love Bug" and "If I Could Be Loved By You".

LuluLulu/Heaven & Earth & The Stars ... CD
Chelsea/Edsel (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
A pair of albums from British pop singer Lulu – one of which features a surprising collaboration with David Bowie! First up is the self-titled Lulu from 1972, a soulful set from the singer – one that's not nearly as well-known as her late 60s classics, but a record that shows that she'd really absorbed a heck of a lot of soul music influence from her work in America! The album's got strong production from Wes Farrell – never too polished, but tight enough to give the maturing singer just the right sort of support – as she puts her own touches on tunes from American rock and soul of the previous few years. Titles include a great remake of "Easy Evil", plus "Make Believe World", "A Boy Like You", "I Wish", "Could It Be Forever", "Do Right Woman", "Funny How Time Slips Away", and "Hold On To What You've Got". Heaven & Earth & The Stars is a bit of a mixed bag in terms of content – but a set that holds some great surprises too! Perhaps the greatest of these is Lulu's collaboration with David Bowie and Mick Ronson on versions of "The Man Who Sold The World" and "Watch That Man" – both pretty fantastic, and given maybe a bit more mid 70s polish than the originals, but with more than enough of Ronson's guitar to tie them strongly to the original Bowie recordings. The album also includes the great James Bond theme tune "The Man With The Golden Gun" – which is a real standout, and very much in the best legacy of Bond title tunes. Other titles include "Take Your Mama For A Ride (parts 1 & 2)", "Boy Meets Girl", "Baby I Don't Care", and "Old Fashioned Girl". CD

Alan PriceTwice The Price – The Decca Recordings (Price To Pay/Price On His Head/singles) (3CD set) ... CD
Decca/Edsel (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $18.99
Fantastic sounds from Alan Price – a singer who first got his start in The Animals, but quickly burst forth as a solo act on his own – working in an equally great mix of jazz, blues, and soul! Price is a hell of a talent – and one that was never as strongly recognized on our shores – and like his contemporary Georgie Fame, he also is a crack pianist and organ player – both instruments he uses strongly to accompany the gritty grooves on this set. And in fact, if you like Georgie Fame's 60s recordings, you'll find a lot here to love too – no surprise that the two artists later teamed up together – and the package features both of Alan's albums for Decca, plus a whopping 19 more singles that may well represent the best of the bunch – all tracks that didn't appear on the albums. 44 tracks in all – with titles that include "Love Story", "Tappy Tortoise", "Never Be Sick On A Sunday", "Any Day Now", "Tickle Me", "Who Cares", "The Time Has Come", "The Trimdon Grange Explosion", "Come & Dance With Me", "So Long Dad", "Don't Do That Again", "The House That Jack Built", "Goin Down Slow", and "Move On Drifter".

Percy SledgePercy Sledge Way/Take Time To Know Her (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Edsel (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
Two rare albums of southern soul from Percy Sledge – back to back on one CD – with bonus tracks too! In case you're not hip, the Percy Sledge Way is a deeply soulful one – rooted in the best 60s southern soul traditions, and carried off to perfection on this near-lost Atlantic set! The album's better even than Percy's debut for the label – recorded by Quin Ivy at his legendary Quinvy studios – with session players that include Muscle Shoals legends Spooner Oldham, Roger Hawkins, and Jimmy Johnson. The style is prime Muscle Shoals at its best – pure, simple, and uncomplicated – served up in a full sound that features backing vocals on a number of tracks, and a great set list that includes the tracks "Dark End Of The Street", "I Had A Talk With My Woman", "My Special Prayer", "Drown In My Own Tears", "You Don't Miss Your Water", and "What Am I Living For" – all redone nicely by Percy. Take Time To Know Her again pairs the legendary vocals of Percy Sledge with classic Muscle Shoals production from Quin Ivy – all wrapped around a host of hip tunes that go way past the easy 60s soul hits! The formula here is similar to that cooked up by Otis Redding on Stax, but it goes perhaps a few steps more – relaxing into its own confidence, and hitting an easy, open approach to the material that's neither too "stock", nor too slick. And although Otis first started the groove, Percy really helps push it forward strongly on this record – by bringing a deepening spirit and new sophistication to the music that would help it thrive greatly into the 70s. Many tracks are written by the team of Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham, including "I Love Everything About You", "Out Of Left Field", and "Feed the Flame" – and other titles include "Sudden Stop", "Baby Help Me", "Cover Me", "Between These Arms", and "High Cost Of Leaving". Bonus tracks include "Hard To Believe", "Behind Every Great Man There's A Woman", "Little Girl", "It Can't Be Stopped", and single versions of "Sudden Stop", "It's All Wrong But It's Alright", "Between These Arms", and "Just Out Of Reach".

Percy SledgeWhen A Man Loves A Woman/Warm & Tender Soul (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Edsel (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $11.99
Massive soul from 60s Atlantic – 2 legendary albums, back to back on one CD! When A Man Loves A Woman is a stone classic from Percy Sledge – and one of southern soul's all-time greatest hits! The title track, "When A Man Loves A Woman", is an undisputed masterpiece – with sweet bubbling organ, and heartbreaking vocals from Percy himself. The rest is pretty darn great, too – with a similar sound that's filled with love, warmth, and raw emotion. Titles include "Love Me Like You Mean It", "You're Pouring Water On A Drowning Man", "Put A Little Lovin On Me", "Love Me All The Way", and "You Fooled Me". Warm & Tender Soul is equally great – a mature masterpiece of southern soul, recorded by Quinn Ivy with a hip batch of songs that shows that Sledge was a complicated singer, capable of moving way past his hits. The set includes a version of Dan Penn & Lindam Oldham's "It Tears Me Up", plus "I Stand Accused", "Oh How Happy", "Sweet Woman Like You", "So Much Love", and "Heart Of A Child". CD also features 4 bonus tracks – "Sugar Puddin", "Every Beat Of My Heart", "You've Got That Something Wonderful", and a remake of "When A Man Loves A Woman", recorded in 1966 but not issued until 1998.

TurtlesHappy Together (mono & stereo mixes) ... CD
White Whale/Edsel (UK), 1967. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
The title cut may well be the biggest tune The Turtles ever recorded – but the whole album's overflowing with the group's brilliance – and their wonderful ear for offbeat tunes for the Sunshine Pop generation! As with "Happy Together", there's a nice edge to a lot of the tracks here – sweet, but with currents of darkness too – as if the group's looking at pop from the outside – able to effortlessly do their thing, while also twisting things around a bit. Yet they also take themselves more than seriously enough to hit pop perfection throughout – on titles that include "Guide For The Married Man", "The Walking Song", "Think I'll Run Away", "Happy Together", "She'd Rather Be With Me", "Like The Seasons", and "Rugs Of Woods & Flowers". 2CD version features new mastering, new notes, and mono and stereo mixes of the whole album!

TurtlesIt Ain't Me Babe (mono & stereo mixes) ... CD
White Whale/Edsel (UK), 1965. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99 16.99
A fantastic debut from The Turtles – and the kind of rock-solid set that shows that the group had so much more to offer than just a few hits that got overplayed on oldies radio! There's a wonderful blend here of folk currents and garage jangle – almost like The Byrds right around the same time – with elements that vaguely hint at trippier territory, but always focus back strongly on the more tuneful side of the music! Production is wonderful – tight, but never too slick – and the group really have a wonderful way of transforming tunes originally recorded by others – as you'll hear on tracks that include "Wanderin Kind", "It Was A Very Good Year", "Like A Rolling Stone", "Love Minus Zero", "It Ain't Me Babe", "Let Me Be", "Eve Of Destruction", and "Glitter & Gold". Great 2CD version – with new mastering, new notes, and both mono and stereo versions of the album! CD

Geno Washington & The Ram Jam BandGeno Live – The Hit Albums (Hand Clappin Foot Stompin/Hipsters Flipsters Finger-Poppin Daddies/Runnin Wild) (3CD set) ... CD
Edsel (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $12.99
A trio of classic live albums from Gene Washington & The Ram Jam Band – a group who really opened up in a concert setting! First up is Hand Clappin Foot Stompin Funky Butt Live – filled with sockin soul from Geno Washington – an ex-American marine who recorded to big fame in the UK in the late 60s – working with the legendary Ram Jam Band, an act that rivaled some of the best American combos of the southern party circuit at the time! The approach here is certainly soul-based, but it's also something different – given the actual overseas origin of the recording – and in a way, the record's a perfect example of the influence that African-American military had in Europe in the 60s – as their presence on the continent really helped to shape and authenticate the sounds of some already-willing overseas combos. Geno's vocals are great, and the tracks are all upbeat and lively – very much what you'd expect from the title! Titles include "Philly Dog", "Ride Your Pony", "Road Runner", "Up Tight", "Land Of 1000 Dance", "Que Sera Sera", "Get Down With It", and "Willy Nilly". Next is Hipsters Flipsters Finger Poppin Daddies – a bit of soul, a bit of R&B, a bit of beat group grooving – all wrapped up in a classic 60s set from Geno Washington & The Ram Jam Band! Geno's American roots are inflected and appreciated strongly here – not just by the Ram Jam combo, who groove things up with plenty of influences from Atlantic and Sue Records – but also by the audience, who seem to go even more crazy for Geno than the crowds at the Apollo did for James Brown! Washington's vocals are somewhat rough and raspy – perhaps not the instant hit sort of sound for the US market, but a perfect fit for the rougher-edged grooves going on here – partyful soul that's never too poised, and which features lots of covers of 60s classics throughout. Titles include "Herk's Works", "Day Tripper", "I Can't Turn You Loose", "Shotgun", "Raise Your Hand", "Who's Foolin Who", "It's A Wonder", and "Wild Thing". Last up is one more live album – Runnin Wild – with 11 more tracks that include "Rock Me Baby (parts 1 & 2)", "High Heel Sneakers/Mary Ann", "Knock On Wood", "I Take What I Want", "Gimme A Little Sign/Raise Your Hand", "I Got You Babe", and "I Get So Excited".

Edsel (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $29.99
A fantastic collection of rare punk nuggets from the glory days of the UK scene – put together by DJ Gary Crowley, who runs a specialist show on British radio – and served up here in a book-style package that's overflowing with detailed notes, images of the original singles, and other information as well! The collection goes way way past the usual "punk classics" package – partly because Crowley's knowledge of the music and record collection is so enormous – and partly because he's got a nicely expansive view of the generation, one that's open to all the amazing styles that were exploding at the time! Make no mistake, the music here is all punk – no post-punk, Brit pop, or experimental tracks – and the whole thing's a searing 77-track romp, with titles that include "Inside Out" by The Stiffs, "Charles" by The Skids, "Howard Hughes" by The Tights, "Start Again" by The Form, "Everyday Everyday" by Really 3rds, "Wild Dub" by Generation X, "She's Too Clever For Me" by TPI, "You Gotta Know Girl" by Bee Bee Cee, "All About You" by Scars, "When The Tanks Roll Over Poland Again" by Automatics, "Young Savage" by Ultravox, "Getting Nowhere Fast" by Girls At Our Best, "Soldier Soldier" by Spizzenergi, "Go Ahead" by Bobalouis, "Barbarellas" by The Photos, "Kids Just Wanna Dance" by Fast Cars, "This Is Your Life" by Glaxo Babies, "It's The New Thing" by The Fall, "I Hate School" by Suburban Studs, and lots lots more!

Island/Edsel (Germany), 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful mixing of modes – Jim Capaldi's Traffic-bred, London-styled vocals, and the sweet southern soul grooves of Muscle Shoals – all wrapped together with a sound that's even tighter than Capaldi's debut album! Jim's a big edgier here overall – both in the way he delivers the vocals, and in the lyrics of the tunes – and his singing's underscored perfectly by help from Jimmy Johnson on guitar, Barry Beckett on piano and organ, David Hood on bass, and Roger Hawkins on drums – all of whom create the right sort of warm Muscle Shoals vibe to make Capaldi's music sound wonderfully soulful. Steve Winwood plays a bit of guest organ on the set, and may well help with backing vocals – and titles include the funky "Low Rider" (different than the War tune) – plus "We'll Meet Again", "Summer Is Fading", "My Brother", "It's Alright", and "Yellow Sun".

✨✧ Tyrone DavisCan I Change My Mind/Turn Back The Hands Of Time ... CD
Dakar/Edsel (UK), 1969/1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
Stunning soul from one of Chicago's greatest! Tyrone was one of Chicago's finest singers of the 60s – and he managed to create a whole new sound in the city by mixing his raw west side vocals with some stunning uptown Dakar/Brunswick production. The two albums on this CD are his finest from the early days – and they're a beautiful batch of soaring soul grooves, recorded by Tyrone in this prime early period, with arrangements by guys like Don Myrick and Willie Henderson – both of whom know how to really pack a punch! Tyrone's not lapsing into bluesy cliches here, and instead keeps things wonderfully soulful – especially on the title tracks, and on great cuts like "A Woman Needs To Be Loved", "If It's Love That You're After", "I Keep Coming Back", "Love Bones", and "Let Me Back In". 21 cuts in all – and both albums are great!

White Whale/Edsel (UK), 1969. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
One of the crowning achievements of The Turtles – a set that features all original material by members of the group, and stellar production by Ray Davies of The Kinks! The set's the only full length that Davies ever handled – and it's obvious the group really rose to the occasion for the honor – hitting territory that's nicely sophisticated, yet which still has the sharpness of their earlier material too – a bit like the territory that Ray was hitting at the time with his own music. The songs are both a lot more personal, and have some deeper currents too – as The Turtles, like so many other west coast pop acts, were really maturing at the end of the 60s. Titles include "She Always Leaves Me Laughing", "Somewhere Friday Night", "Dance This Dance", "You Don't Have To Walk In The Rain", "Bachelor Mother", "Love In The City", and "House On The Hill". 2CD version has lots of great bonus tracks – including a "Turtle Soup Radio Spot", plus "Like It Or Not", "Goodbye Surprise", "There You Sit Lonely", "Can I Go On", "You Want To Be A Woman", and "If We Only Had The Time" – plus some demo tracks too!
