Bobby DarinIn A Broadway Bag (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Edsel (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $11.99
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 ... $11.99
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

Steve Miller BandSailor ... CD
Capitol/Edsel (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $9.99
A classic set that really helps put the Steve Miller sound on the map – a wonderful blend of tightness and easygoing energy that makes the group one of the greatest things going from San Francisco at the time! 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

Percy SledgeMy Special Prayer/Singles & Rarities (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Edsel (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
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 ... $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 ... $15.99
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.

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".

✨✧ Jackie WilsonThis Love Is Real/You Got Me Walking ... CD
Brunswick/Edsel (UK), 1970/1971. Used ... $14.99
Late late work by Jackie Wilson – 2 of his last albums for Brunswick! This Love Is Real was recorded in 1970 – but thanks to a wise decision to move his soul base of operations to the Chicago scene, Jackie's still going strong – and with a groove that we like even better than on his early records. Includes the great "This Love Is Real (I Can Feel Those Vibrations)", which has a nice Gene Chandler-esque groove – plus "Say You Will", "Love Uprising", "Let This Be A Letter (To My Baby)", and "Don't Leave Me". You Got Me Walking features work by arranger/producers Rich Tufo, Carl Davis, Willie Henderson, and Eugene Record. Jackie's voice is as sweet as ever, and it's very well suited to the loping soul groove that Record and Davis were forging as part of the Chisoul sound of the late 60s. Tracks include "The Girl Turned Me On", "Love is Funny That Way", "The Fountain", "You Got Me Walking", and "You Left The Fire Burning". Moves way past the cliches of earlier days, with many interesting applications of Jackie's unique vocals! CD

Capitol/Edsel (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

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

✨✧ Labi SiffreCrying, Laughing, Loving, Lying (with bonus tracks) ... CD
EMI/Edsel (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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)... Out Of Stock
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)... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Dee Dee BridgewaterRed Earth – A Malian Journey ... CD
Universal, 2007. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the most creative albums we've heard from Dee Dee Bridgewater in years – a set of tracks recorded with a host of Malian artists – in a unique cross-cultural mode that's unlike anything else Dee Dee has ever recorded! The core style here is still very firmly rooted in Bridgewater's jazz roots – but that sound is augmented strongly by the additional singers and musicians – in a mix of jazz and Mali musics that comes off surprisingly well. There's hardly any of the overdone cliches that you might expect from such a record – and Dee Dee herself seems creatively re-ignited in the setting – singing with a sense of freedom and exploration we haven't heard in a long long time, and which is a great reminder of why we've always stood by her over the years. Guest artists include Toumani Diabate, Kasse Mady Dibate, Zoumana Tereta, Baba Sissoko, and Oumou Sangare – and the jazz side of the music is handled quite strongly by pianist Edsel Gomez and bassist Ira Coleman. Titles include "Afro Blue", "Bad Spirits", "Dee Dee", "Mama Don't Ever Go Away", "Footprints", "No More", "Four Women", "The Griots", and "Oh My Love". Also features 3 Parisian tracks too – "Compared To What", "Red Earth", and "Meanwhile". CD
