Marc Bolan & T Rex with Elton John & Ringo StarrChildren Of The Revolution (Born To Boogie version)/Tutti Frutti/Born To Boogie (original recording) ... 7-inch
Edsel (UK), 1972. New Copy (pic cover)... $15.99
A very unusual version of the classic T Rex tune "Children Of The Revolution" – done here in a stripped-down style that's acoustic at the start, before getting more familiarly fuzzy – and which features guest work from Elton John and Ringo Starr! John and Starr are also listed as appearing on the album's glam remake of "Tutti Frutti" – and the single's completed by the super-groovy "Born To Boogie", presented here in its original recording! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bobby DarinIn A Broadway Bag (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Edsel (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $16.99
In A Broadway Bag is exactly that – Bobby Darin taking on some of the biggest Broadway tunes of his generation – and doing a pretty darn good job as well! Arrangements are by Shorty Rogers and Perry Botkin, both of whom bring a hip flair to the proceedings – a sound that's usually a fair bit more swinging and jazz-based than you'd hear if you were catching these songs in their original settings. Darin's finger-snapping style is a great one for these tunes – bringing out all their sharper edges in ways that other 60s performers don't always get. Titles include "Night Song", "Try To Remember", "Once Upon A Time", "The Other Half Of Me", "I Believe In You", "It's Today", and "Everybody Has The Right To Be Wrong". 50th Anniversary CD has 3 bonus tracks: "Walking In The Shadow Of Love", "Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?" and "Merci Cherie".

Bobby DarinSings Shadow Of Your Smile (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Edsel (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $16.99
A sweet set that has Bobby Darin working partially in that more adult 60s mode that was influenced strongly by changes in soundtrack styles – especially that 60s trend towards letting some serious younger songwriters pen important tunes for the titles. There's also a few older tracks as well, and these dominate on the second half, but combine really nicely with the more contemporary ones in sound and spirit – arranged by Shorty Rogers and Richard Wess with a lightly easygoing approach. Titles include "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "I Will Wait For You", "The Sweetheart Tree", "Cute", "After You've Gone", "Liza", "What's New Pussycat", and the Darin original "Rainin". This 50th Anniversary CD edition has 4 bonus tracks, too: "We Didn't Ask To Be Brought Here", "Funny What Love Can Do", "The Breaking Point" and "Silver Dollar". CD

Labi SiffreCrying, Laughing, Loving, Lying (with bonus tracks) ... CD
EMI/Edsel (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $9.99
Spare genius from the legendary Labi Siffre – a record without categorization, and one that sits beautifully between soul, folk, and singer-songwriter styles of the early 70s! The record balances perfectly between simple tunes that just feature voice and guitar, and more complicated ones that use subtle strings, electric keys, and other orchestrations behind Labi's vocals – never too much, but just enough to give the tunes a hipper, sometimes slightly more grooving feel – in a mode that's somewhere in the territory of Terry Callier from the time, but very much its own sound altogether! This one's incredibly hard to peg – but well worth seeking out, and a tremendous bit of work from an artist who's unfortunately mostly remember these days for just a few famous break tracks – and not his sublime sense of songwriting! Titles include "Love Oh Love Oh Love", "Crying Laughing Loving Lying", "My Song", "Hotel Room Song", "Blue Lady", "Gimme Some More", and "It Must Be Love". CD features 8 bonus tracks – including "To Find Love", "Watch Me", "You Make It Easy", "Good Old Days", "Pristine Verses", "Oh Me Oh My Mr City Goodbye", and "For The Lovin". CD

Labi SiffreFor The Children (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
EMI/Edsel (UK), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $14.99
A really wonderful album from singer/songwriter Labi Siffre – a set that has him exploring a few more righteous themes than before, but still mostly stepping along in that more compressed pop of his earliest albums! The tunes are catchy, compelling, and done in that great blend of acoustic guitar and flanged-out vocals that made Siffre's 70s work so great – a sound that's slightly aligned with the groove of Gilbert O'Sullivan, but a bit more soul based overall. There's a subdued sense of drama here on the best tunes – one that puts them over earnestly without going too far over the top – and slight electric touches spice things up a bit, and point towards funkier work to come. Titles include "Someday", "Children Of Children", "Entertainment Value", "Somesay", "Odds & Ends", "Let's Pretend", and "If You Have Faith". LP, Vinyl record album

Labi SiffreSinger & The Song (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
EMI/Edsel (UK), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99
An incredible record from Labi Siffre – spare, simple, and totally beautiful – in a space beyond category! The album is the sort that should have been a real standout in the 70s – early work by one of the freshest songwriters to hit the British scene, sung in a style that's a bit jazzy, a bit soulful – with playful inflections that never get in the way of the beautiful lyrics at all. Labi's got a unique blend of modes here that ranks with a rare few in music – Terry Callier, Joni Mitchell, and a few other beyond-category artists from the same generation. The whole thing's extremely beautiful – and Labi's voice and guitar are backed by some subtle arrangements that shade in the bottom with electric keys, a bit of bass, spare strings – and sometimes nothing at all! Titles include "Thank You Lucky Star", "Bless The Telephone", "There's Nothing In The World Like Love", "You're Lovely", "A Number Of Words", "Who Do You See", "Not So Long Ago", "Relax", and "Interlude".

T RexUnchained – Home Recordings & Studio Outtakes (8CD set & book) ... CD
Edsel (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 8CD ... $49.99
A beautiful package that brings together all the many volumes of home recordings done by Marc Bolan during the 70s – titles that were issued individually as the Unchained series, but which look even better here in this complete package, which comes with a huge LP-styled book! The 8CD collection features 184 tracks in all – home demos, alternate takes, abandoned songs, and unfinished recordings – all providing a great document of the genius of Marc Bolan that goes way past his famous T Rex albums, and which shows that he still had a hell of a lot to give us, had he not departed the planet at an early age in 1977. The package comes with a revised book of notes from Bolan biographer Mark Paytress – and given the amount of music, the collection is one hell of a deal! CD

Geno Washington & The Ram Jam BandGeno – The Picadilly & Pye Studio Recordings (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Edsel (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
An insanely huge collection of work from Geno Washington – the American GI who went onto great fame on the UK soul scene! The core of the set is the album Shake A Tail Feather – a hard-smoking album that bears all the best 60s hallmarks of Geno Washington and his Ram Jam Band! The album's not as much a live effort as the previous two, but still keeps all the best spontaneous qualities in the music – a feel that really makes you think that Washington and the band were just partying in the studio, rattling the tunes off as they came to them – with all the confidence and swagger earned from a never-ending stream of gigs in the UK! Titles include "Raise Your Hand", "You Got Me Hummin", "Tell It Like It Is", "Use Me", "Understanding", "Knock On Wood", "I'm Your Puppet", "Who's Foolin Who", and "Hold On To My Love". CD also features 7 more bonus tracks – including "Seven Eleven", "Alison Please", "Each & Every Part Of Me", "Give Em A Hand", and "Dirty Dirty". Then, CD includes 35 more tracks (!) – both a and b-sides of his singles, plus more additional tracks from the time – all studio recordings by the singer and group, with titles that include "Water", "Hi Hi Hazel", "Beach Bash", "My Little Chickadee", "Different Strokes", "You Got Me Hummin", "I Can't Quit Her", "Feeling So Good", "Dirty Dirty", "Give Em A Hand", "I Was Kaiser Bill's Batman", "She's All I Got", "Summer Fever", and "Listen To My Love Song That Ain't Got A Rhyme". 57 tracks in all!

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 ... $18.99
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".

YardbirdsRoger The Engineer ... CD
Edsel (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... $6.99
If you ever needed a record to convince you that The Yardbirds are pure genius, this one is it! Roger The Engineer captures all that was great about the group at their start – their sharp guitars, their undeniable wit, and that really special way they had of turning their bluesy inspirations into something completely new and different for the mod 60s scene! Jeff Beck is amazing on guitar – and the set's one of those that will have you go "oh yeah, that's why he was so important" – setting fire to the rest of the group, who themselves explode in ways that are mindblowing – and the whole thing's a blueprint for countless records to come from other artists who never got things this right. Titles include "Happenings Ten Years Time Ago", "Over Under Sideways Down", "Lost Women", "The Nazz Are Blue", "Jeff's Boogie", "What Do You Want", "He's Always There", "Turn Into Earth", and "Pyscho Daisies".

✨✧ Steve Miller BandBrave New World ... CD
Capitol/Edsel (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A brilliant standout in a late 60s world of blues rock – a set that goes way beyond what most of Steve Miller's contemporaries were doing at the time – to find a brave new world that's all its own! As before, the drums are key to the group's sound – harder and funkier than most of their contemporaries – with a propulsive energy that really pushes the group past any sort of sleepy cliches, and allows Miller to grab a whole host of other influences, and manage to forge them into the sound. Tim Davis is the mighty man on the kit – really kicking it throughout – and other surprising guests include Ben Sidran on guitar, and an appearance by Paul McCartney on one track too! Titles include "Space Cowboy", "Got Love Cause You Need It", "Celebration Song", "In My Dark Hour", "Kow Kow", and "Brave New World". CD

Number five, and the Steve Miller Band is still going strong – working here with some great help from Area Code 615, who bring a slightly rootsy vibe to the set! That core Miller brilliance is still very firmly in place – and Steve's got an even sharper ear for writing songs this time around – working in more influences than before, and really finding his voice – or more appropriately, that great way his vocals can be filtered in with the production. Other guests include Ben Sidran and Nicky Hopkins – helping to reinstate the keyboard sound in the group – and titles include "Steve Miller's Midnight Tango", "Industrial Military Complex Hex", "Never Kill Another Man", "Going To The Country", and "Hot Chili".

Some tunes have this burning quality that's completely sublime – while others still preserve some of the looser jamming energy that spawned the group – those heady waves of sound that Miller and Scaggs really helped filter down for a whole new generation! Titles include the brilliant "Living In The USA", plus "Song For Our Ancestors", "Dear Mary", "Quicksilver Girl", "Gangster Of Love", and "Overdrive". CD

Capitol/Edsel (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Steve Miller Band is firmly down to a trio here – and they've never sounded better – thanks to completely kickass drums from Tim Davis, and some heavy heavy bass from Lonnie Turner – both of whom work with Miller in a style that's almost an American answer to the music of Cream from the UK! The vocals have this great way of laying down amidst the guitar, bass, and drums – and although rooted in blues, the music is so much more – especially since it's got an unbridled energy that always has the best tunes really taking off. Titles include "Baby's House", "Motherless Children", "Last Wombat In Mecca", "Your Saving Grace", "Just A Passin Fancy", and "Feel So Glad". CD

✨✧ Percy SledgeMy Special Prayer/Singles & Rarities (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Edsel (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A crucial look at the later Atlantic years of southern soul giant Percy Sledge – an artist who was never treated nearly as well as his contemporaries, although he cut some truly fantastic material for the label! Just about all of these tracks are unusual in terms of the American catalog market – as the main album here – My Special Prayer – was a 1970 album only issued overseas, as a way of pulling together Sledge's great singles from that stretch, even though some of them never came out in America! The album's a great match for the massive 27 other singles including here – which makes for a stunning package that's overflowing with non-LP cuts by Percy, including five tracks that were never issued back in the day. Sledge's vocals are incredible – even more mature than in his first few years – really finding his own sort of special deep soul sound, and working mostly with very familiar accompaniment from producer Quinn Ivy and Muscle Shoals musicians – who cook up some beautiful mellow backings for the singer. A real treasure, all the way through – with cuts that include "Wanted", "Self Preservation", "True Love Travels On A Gravel Road", "Kind Woman", "Set Me Free", "Blow Out The Sun", "I Found A Love", "Love Is A Job", "My Christmas Wish For You", "Faithful & True", "Woman Of The Night", "Sunshine", "Same Old Loverman", "Unchanging Love", and "You Can Always Get It Where You Got It".

✨✧ Percy SledgePercy Sledge Way/Take Time To Know Her (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Edsel (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Steve Miller BandFly Like An Eagle (CD/DVD – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Edsel (UK), 1976. New Copy CD & DVD ... Out Of Stock
A masterpiece from the legendary SF rocker Steve Miller – and a perfect summation of the years of blues, soul, funk, and rock he'd been soaking up in the Bay Area scene – served up here with an edge that's still very firmly in place! Miller was already plenty great before this set, but somehow the record really pushes Steve into perfection territory he'd never hit before – able to cross over big with a few key tracks, but still have this sharpness in his guitar work and sense of charm that never seem to die! The album crossed over instantly with the massive cut "Fly Like An Eagle" – already great on its own, but supported here with the massive "Space Intro", which adds an extra minute of cool electronics to the tune – and other great cuts include the amazing funky rocker "Take The Money & Run", which has a break that never gets old – plus the hit "Rock N Me", and the cuts "The Window", "Wild Mountain Honey", "Sweet Maree", "Blue Odyssey", "Mercury Blues", and "Dance Dance Dance". CD also features three killer bonus tracks – a stunning early 1973 version of "Fly Like An Eagle", a great demo titled "Take The Joker & Run", and "Rock N Me 76 Slow", which is a nicely fresh version of the tune. Plys, the package also features a DVD with 22 tracks from a 2005 Shoreline Amphitheater concert by Steve Miller – and a bonus documentary on the making of the album, and bonus 5.1 surround sound mix of the album!

Dee Dee BridgewaterEleanora Fagin – To Billie With Love From Dee Dee ... CD
EmArcy, 2010. Used ... $4.99
A tribute to Billie Holiday, but one that's way different than the usual – as you'd probably guess from the image of Dee Dee Bridgewater on the cover! Yes, the tunes are numbers that Billie sang back in the day, and yes, there's a certain Holiday-like tinge in Bridgewater's vocals – but the arrangements are decidedly fresh and modern, handled by Edsel Gomez, who plays piano in the album's small combo with Christian McBride on bass, Lewis Nash on drums, and James Carter on tenor, soprano sax, and bass clarinet. The whole thing's as hip as can be – easily on a par with some of Dee Dee's best records ever – which is great, as she could have easily rested on her laurels doing a more standard copy of Billie Holiday's style. Gomez brings in lots of great rhythms to groove up some of the tunes – and titles include "All Of Me", "Lover Man", "Strange Fruit", "Mother's Son In Law", "Fine & Mellow", "You've Changed", and "Miss Brown To You".
