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 ... $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.

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 ... $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

TurtlesTurtle Soup (with bonus tracks) ... CD
White Whale/Edsel (UK), 1969. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
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!

TurtlesTurtles Present The Battle of The Bands (with bonus tracks) ... CD
White Whale/Edsel (UK), 1968. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
One of the coolest concepts ever for a 60s rock record – and maybe one of the standout sets from The Turtles! The album is set up as a "Battle Of The Bands" – one that has the group pretending to be a different ensemble from track to track on the record, either Natures Children, Fats Mallard & The Bluegrass Fireball, The Bigg Brothers, The LA Bust '66, and many other fake combos – all in a way that offers up a brilliant commentary on rock music in the late 60s! The effortlessness with which the group approaches the songs is fantastic – each number could have been a hit for the individual groups, were they real. One of our favorite tracks is the incredible "I'm Chief Kamanawanalea", played by the Royal Macademia Nuts – which has an incredible funky breakbeat all the way through! Another nice one is the funky cut "Buzzsaw", which has a fuzzy guitar groove that sounds a lot like "Tramp" – and other titles include "Surfer Dan", "The Last Thing I Remember", "Elenore", "You Showed Me", "Food", and "Chicken Little Was Right". 2CD version features 11 more bonus tracks – other songs from the project, as well as a radio spot – with titles that include "Can't You Hear The Cows", "The Owl", "The Last Thing I Remember", "Umbassa The Dragon", and "To See The Sun".

TurtlesWooden Head (with bonus tracks) ... CD
White Whale/Edsel (UK), 1970. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
The last Turtles album on the White Whale label – but a set that's actually made up of unreleased material the group recorded for the company during their earlier years! And yet, despite that fact, there's a really heady vibe to the whole thing – maybe because the material was too forward-thinking the label didn't issue it at the time – or maybe because it's just so unfamiliar. But whatever the case, the whole thing's great – a really special slice of the brilliance that was The Turtles in their prime – a group that could easily stand up next to early Kinks, late 60s Hollies, or even mid 60s Byrds! Titles include "Tie Me Down", "Wanderin Kind", "Come Back", "Say Girl", "She'll Come Back", "Get Away", "Wrong From The Start", and "I Get Out Of Breath". 2CD version features 13 more bonus tracks – including "Turtles Golden Hits Radio Spot", plus "So Goes Love", "Is It Any Wonder", "Grim Reaper Of Love", "Outside Chance", "Cat In The Window", "You Know What I Mean", and some unusual mixes too!

TurtlesYou Baby (mono & stereo mixes) ... CD
White Whale/Edsel (UK), 1966. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A seminal second set from The Turtles – and a record that really has them sharpening up their sound! The songwriting is smarter than before, and the group's also developing the wit that would really set them apart from the rest of the west coast scene of the 60s – that mode of stepping back, taking a grander look at the music, and coming forward with a great sense of perspective in their sound! There's still a few folksy currents from before – but there's also some deeper, darker modes too – maybe a touch of Brit influence, ala Animals or Kinks – yet slightly lighter west coast too. Titles include "Down In Suburbia", "House Of Pain", "Just A Room", "I Know That You'll Be There", "Flyin High", "Pall Bearing Ball Bearing World", and "Give Love A Trial". Great 2CD version – with new mastering, new notes, and mono and stereo mixes of the whole 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".

Wreckless EricBig Smash (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Stiff/Edsel (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $14.99
An album with a title that was certainly ironic – as it was not the one to give Wreckless Eric his long-overdue big smash – even though the singing and songwriting is every bit as great as his previous two albums for Stiff Records! Like the best on Stiff at the time – and Eric was certainly one of them – the approach here is both very individual, and very much of its time – that space that the label allowed its best talents, as they found a way to create great sounds in a stream that was sideways from punk, and nicely far from commercial pop of the time. There's plenty of greatness here to discover – and titles include "Strange Towns", "It'll Soon Be Weekend", "Tonight", "A Pop Song", "Too Busy", "Broken Doll", and "Back In My Hometown". Features bonus tracks – "A Little Bit More", "Take The Cash (live)", and "I Need A Situation (live)". CD

Wreckless EricWonderful World Of Wreckless Eric (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Stiff/Edsel (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy ... $14.99
The second album from UK cult figure Wreckless Eric – a set that's much more professionally put-together than the first – but which still has all the great edge and songwriting that made that debut so great! The cover shot is ironic – the set here just features Eric singing with a quintet – and tunes are a raw, reworked version of both punk and pub rock modes – that kind of special space that was opening up for artists as individual as this one – supported by labels like Stiff, who could have surprising hits with very offbeat sounds. Maybe one of the best things is the fact that Eric's vocals are unabashedly British – almost in Jilted John territory, but straighter and more serious – which really makes the songs sound wonderful, even when he's trying on material by other artists. Titles include "Take The Cash", "Walking On The Surface Of The Moon", "Crying Waiting Hoping", "Girlfriend", "Let's Go To The Pictures", and "The Final Taxi". CD features five bonus tracks – including "Hit & Miss Judy", "I Need A Situation", "Let's Go To The Pictures (single version)", "I Wish It Would Rain (single version)", and "Be Stiff (live)". CD

Stiff/Edsel (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $14.99
The debut album from Wreckless Eric – an artist who's a bit less-remembered these days than some of his more famous Stiff Records contemporaries, like Elvis Costello or Nick Lowe – but one whose sound was a very important part of the new London scene at the time! Eric's not really punk, but he's got an approach that could only have been birthed in the punk generation – spare, simple songs, delivered with a razor-sharp wit, very odd voice, and maybe a bit of a sneer from time to time – all basking in the unassuming production offered the record by Stiff. Titles include Eric's breakout track "Whole Wide World", plus "Rags N Tatters", "Waxworks", "Telephoning Home", "Grown Ups", "Brain Thieves", and "Personal Hygiene". CD features bonus tracks – "Semaphore Signals", plus the live titles "Reconnez Cherie" and "Semaphore Signals". CD

Brunswick/Edsel (UK), 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Perhaps the most heavenly of all the Chi-Lites albums, with soaring harmonies leaping all over beautiful Chicago soul production, and loads of great heartbreaking stories unfolding as the whole thing spins away! A true masterpiece from the Chicago scene – and filled with loads of wonderful moments that almost seem to be the group's answer to some of the growing wave of harmony soul coming from the east coast at the time. Includes the excellent title track, plus "Just Two Teenage Kids", "Too Late To Turn Back Now", "Someone Else's Arms", "You Smiled The Same Old Way", "My Heart Just Keeps On Breakin'", and "Love Comes In All Sizes". Nice cover, too, with a skyline shot of Chicago around the same time that Bob Newhart was working there as a shrink! CD

Brunswick/Edsel (UK), 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet soul killer from The Chi-Lites – and record that really shows them as one of the greatest harmony groups to ever come from Chicago! The vibe here is a bit more mellow than on previous records – and the trio step into some sublime ballads and love songs that really blow us away – set up with a style that's very different than most of the east coast groups of the period, and produced with this rich style that has the Brunswick records charts from Eugene Record and Tom Tom Washington soar wonderfully along with the vocals. As with other Brunswick albums, there's a few nuggets here that might show up elsewhere, but the album's got plenty of greatness to love on its own, too – with tracks that include "Toby", "There Will Never Be Any Peace", "I Like To Live The Love", "You Got To Be The One", "The Sound Of Lonely", "I Lied", "That's How Long", and "Gettin On Outta Town".
