Cheap TrickEpic Archive Vol 1 – 1975 to 1979 ... CD
Epic/Real Gone, Late 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
The early years of Cheap Trick – revisited here in a wonderful set of rare material that was never issued at the time! In the late 70s, the Chicago area group were really on fire – and could do no wrong – so even though these nuggets didn't make it onto their albums (or even later CD bonus tracks), they're still wonderful stuff – and showcase the group in development on a few tunes, really moving forward to the genius of their studio albums. Titles include "Come On Come On (demo)", "Taxman Mr Thief (demo)", "I Dig Go Go Girls (outtake)", "You're All Talk (early studio version)", "I Want You To Want Me (early studio version)", "You're All Talk (live 1977)", "Goodnight (live 1977)", "Stiff Competition (alt version)", "Surrender (alt version)", "Lookout (live in Japan 78)", "Dream Police (no strings)", "How Are You (Budokan 79)", and "On Top Of The World (Budokan 79)".

Teena MarieOoh La La – The Epic Anthology ... CD
Epic/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
A set that shines a much-needed light on the second great chapter of Teena Marie's career – the time when she departed Motown for Epic Records – leaving behind mentor Rick James, and taking a lot more control of her music overall! At the end of the 70s, Teena forged a version of female funky soul that so many others would copy in the following decade – but on these sides, she reminds us that she can still do it better than the rest – able to stay true to her roots while trying on some new grooves – especially as the 90s approached, and Marie found a way to continue to freshen up her sound. Those later years show a keen ear for some of the better changes in mainstream R&B – including a growing ear for mellower groovers – and the 2CD package is divided into one disc of funkier tracks, and another of those sweet midtempo cuts. Many tracks here are also unusual mixes from singles – and titles include "Since Day One (Jazzie's radio version)", "Lovergirl (special 12" dance mix)", "Playboy (12" rmx)", "Starchild", "Work It (ext LP mix)", "Fix It (12" mix)", "Dear Lover", "Casanova Brown", "Miracles Need Wings To Fly", "If I Were A Bell (ext version)", "Love Me Down Easy (12" version)", "Just Us Two (garage mix)", "Bad Boy (house arrest mix)", "Here's Looking At You (12" mix)", "14K (ext dance mix)", "Surrealistic Pillow (sexy pillow rmx)", "Lips To Find You (ext version)", and "Soulmates", which was recorded with QT Hush.

MtumePrime Time – The Epic Anthology ... CD
Epic/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99
James Mtume is an artist with deep roots in jazz – including some excellent spiritual jazz material in the early 70s – but here, he's hitting superstardom in the soul music world – by pairing up with Reggie Lucas for a great run of music from the Mtume group! Lucas also hails from jazz – Mtume met him when they were both working with Miles Davis – and both artists bring something really special to their sound that moves it away from simple commercial soul – a bit like the depth that lays behind Earth Wind & Fire, who have similar righteous roots, but are able to fuse a wonderfully smooth, groovy sound – and there's also a similarity to the late 70s material of Norman Connors, another artist who followed a similar path. This set spans the full run of excellent recordings Mtume did for the Epic label – almost a decade's worth of music, including some other mixes, and a few side projects with singer Tawatha. Titles include "Just Funnin", "Anticipatin", "Mrs Sippi", "Love Lock", "Closer To The End", "Funky Constellation", "The After 6 Mix (Juicy Fruit part 2)", "You Me & He (polygamy mix)", "COD", "Prime Time", "We're Gonna Make It This Time", "The Closer I Get To You", "Kiss This World Goodbye", "It's Non-Functional", "Body & Soul", "Breathless (A&G mix)", "Did I Dream You", and "Would You Like To Fool Around".

Tony OrlandoHalfway To Paradise – The Complete Epic Masters 1961 to 1964 ... CD
Epic/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $7.99 18.99
Way before Tony Orlando started tying a ribbon around that old oak tree, he cut some wonderful work for the Epic label – early 60s Brill Building pop at its finest, recorded with a host of top-shelf talents! Arrangements here are by Carole King, Alan Lorber, Garry Sherman, and other New York pop luminaries – all of whom cast Tony's vocals in a surprisingly soulful blend of strings with deeper drums and bass – a groove that's a bit like some of the uptown soul that was coming into play on the scene at the time, and which is a lot less than the simple pop you might expect. Orlando's presentation of the material is really great – never prone to easy gimmicks, and often with a slightly fragile style that's a far cry from his 70s fame. Titles include "Bless You", "My Baby's A Stranger", "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow", "Tell Me Where To Run To", "That Lovin Touch", "Shirley", "The Loneliest", "I'll Be There", "Accept It", "I'd Never Find Another You", "Talkin About You", and "Some Kinda Wonderful". 27 tracks in all – with great notes on this phase of Tony's career!

VibratorsEpic Years 1976 to 1978 (Pure Mania/V2/In Session At The BBC/Live At The Marquee 1977/bonus tracks) (4CD set) ... CD
Epic/Anagram (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 4CD ... $18.99
A huge document of this early UK punk group – in a special set that includes their first two albums, BBC material, a live set, and even bonus tracks too! First up is the classic Pure Mania – the first and best album by the Vibrators, a band that maybe can't really be considered as first wave punk in the purest sense – but who still made a helluva punky racket all the same! The professional studio sheen and lack of angry politics of the record sets Mania apart from some of the more influential albums that came in the months before and after – but the energy on the record is maybe right up there with the best by the Damned, and the group's approach helped set the wheels in motion for the far less hostile new wave scene that was on the way – which then, in turn, helped transform the larger world of rock in the process. Was there ever a better year for stripped down, punchy rock than 1977? Tracks include "Into The Future", "Yeah Yeah Yeah", "Sweet Sweet Heart", "Keep It Clean", "Baby Baby", "Petrol", "London Girls", "Wrecked On You", and more. Next is Vibrators 2, from the following year – a set that still really holds onto all the short sharp shock of the group's debut – and which also never lets the major label setting get in the way of the loud and fast drums and guitars! There's a vibe here that really paves the way for countless UK imitators to come – and at times, there's almost a bit of a Jam sort of catchiness to some of the tunes. Titles include "Automatic Lover", "Public Enemy No 1", "Destroy", "Nazi Baby", "War Zone", "Sulphate", "24 Hour People", and "Troops Of Tomorrow". CD3 features 18 BBC recordings from 1976 through 1978 – three John Peel shows, and one Old Grey Whistle Test performance! Last CD features a smoking live set from the summer of 1977 – 19 tracks, recorded live at the Marquee! Box also features notes – and bonus tracks include live versions of "Stiff Little Fingers" and "London Girls" – plus "Automatic Lover (single)", "Judy Says", and "Pushing Too Hard". CD

Kamasi WashingtonEpic (3CD set) ... CD
Brainfeeder, 2015. New Copy 3 CDs ... $19.99 25.98
A modern day spiritual jazz treasure – completely wonderful all the way through, and a set you might well file proudly next to your classics from John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders! The record's as epic as it promises in the title – a three volume journey in jazz, headed by tenorist Kamai Washington, who emerges here as a tremendous leader, a hell of a writer, and a rich jazz talent in every sense of the word – carefully steering a group of musicians through work that's searing, searching, and driven with a very cosmic vibe! Tunes are often modal, and never step too far outside, but always push the boundaries – and the instrumentation is a shifting mix of keyboards, piano, trombone, trumpet, bass, drums, and percussion – plus some vocal performances from Dwight Trible and Patrice Quinn. You might know Kamasi from his work with Flying Lotus and Thundercat – the latter of whom plays bass on this set – but the album's very much his own, and very much jazz all the way through. The kind of record we're mighty proud to be offering – with tracks that include "Askim", "The Next Step", "Rhythm Changes", "Miss Understanding", "Leroy & Lanisha", "Re Run", "Seven Prayers", "Malcolm's Theme", and "The Message".

✨✧ Melba MooreStanding Right Here – The Anthology – The Buddah & Epic Years ... CD
Epic/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A huge run of greatness from singer Melba Moore – an artist who maybe hit her heights on the late 70s Buddah and Epic Records material featured here! Moore already had a fantastically well-developed voice by the time of these recordings – thanks to time on the stage in a number of key productions, including Hair and Purlie – but the late 70s also shows her really finding the right sort of focus for her unusual talents – maybe pulling back a bit at the right moments, and folding her strength into the overall groove of a tune – spearheaded here with excellent work from producers who include McFadden & Whitehead, Eugene McDaniels, and Van McCoy! CD1 features 17 tracks from her time at Budddah Records, CD2 features 14 more cuts recorded for Epic – and the collection also features some rare b-sides and other material from singles. Titles include "My Sensitive Passionate Man", "Standing Right Here", "I Am His Lady", "This Is It (12" mix)", "Stay Awhile", "So Many Mountains", "Good Love Makes Everything Alright (12" mix)", "You Stepped Into My Life", "Night People (12" mix)", "Next To You", "Rest Inside My Love", "You Stepped Into My Life (special disco mix)", "There's No Other Like You", "Just Another Link", "Night People (12" mix)", and "Burn (UK rmx)".

✨✧ Vivian ReedYours Until Tomorrow – The Epic Years ... CD
Columbia/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A much-needed look at the early work of Vivian Reed – a singer who got the chance to release a handful of full length albums in the disco generation, but one who sounds even better here right at the start of her career! The beautiful package brings together rare single sides and LP tracks that Vivian cut for Epic Records in the late 60s and early 70s – music that has the vocalist really hitting the full, deep range of her talents – in settings that maybe begin with familiar uptown soul modes, but soon step off into some even more righteous territory! A range of top-shelf talents help Reed out in the studio – as the cuts feature arrangements by Van McCoy, Jimmy Wisner, Thom Bell, Bobby Martin, and Herb Bernstein – all of whom really find a way to unlock Vivian's vocals and really let them soar. Even the familiar tunes take on a new sort of vibe here – great soulful readings that are quite different than the originals – on titles that include "Missing You", "Shape Of Things To Come", "Don't Close The Door On Me", "I Feel The Earth Move", "Lean On Me", "Mama Open The Door", "Baby Baby", "I", "Yours Until Tomorrow", "I Wanna Be Free", "Look The Other Way", "Down Here On The Ground", "Walk On My Side", and "Then I'll Be Over You".

Epic, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $5.99
Nancy sings some sweet Latin groovers in Spanish – backed by groovy 60s arrangements from Joe Sherman! The feel here isn't quite as driving as on her classic "Mas Que Nada" album – but it does have a similar style – sort of blending easy 60s vocals with swinging pop Latin rhythms, all in a style that's pretty darn groovy, especially on the upbeat numbers! Tracks include Spanish versions of "Yesterday", "That Kiss", "A Taste Of Honey", "Call Me", and "Shadow Of Your Smile". LP, Vinyl record album

Carl AndersonOn & On ... LP
Epic, 1984. Very Good- ... $4.99
A sweet second set from 80s singer Carl Anderson – a date that's got poise, class, and a heck of a lot of soul! Although a mainstream effort, there's a nice sort of depth to the record – one that shows that Columbia wasn't pitching Anderson as much towards a crossover artist as they were some of their other mid 80s acts – instead, letting him really hang back and do his own thing – in a warmly-swinging mode that still holds up beautifully over the years! The record's a real standout in 80s mainstream male soul – and thanks is certainly due to producer/arrangers John Skip Anderson and Steve Williams, who carefully avoid the commercial side of the spectrum. Titles include "Don't Make Me Wait", "Try", "Keep It Alive", "On & On", "Lately", and "Time To Win". LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Bailey2 Feet In The Gutter ... LP
Epic, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
Hardbop albums don't get any better than this – and although drummer Dave Bailey only recorded for a brief stretch as a leader, this session's one that shows that he was a heck of a force to contend with! The record's got an intensity that easily rivals the best by Art Blakey over at Blue Note during the early 60s – but Dave's also got a slightly looser groove too – a bit more sense of humanity, and one that allows for really organic interplay between the players. There's a slight soul jazz undercurrent – especially in the piano lines of Billy Gardner – and other players in the quintet include Bill Hardman on trumpet, Frank Haynes on tenor, and Ben Tucker on bass. The group wails on an early version of Tucker's classic "Comin' Home Baby", plus other great originals like "Coffee Walk", "Lady Iris B", and "Two Feet In the Gutter". A old favorite on the south side of Chicago! LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Bailey SextetGetting' Into Somethin' ... LP
Epic, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
Heavy duty hardbop – one of three amazing Epic Records sessions cut by drummer Dave Bailey! Dave didn't ever cut many sessions as a leader – but when he did, they really cooked hard – with a quality level and sharpness of vision that easily rivals the best on Blue Note or Prestige Records at the time! In fact, this album would have been right at home on either imprint – a smoking session of soulful hardbop, with very long songs that allow plenty of room for solos by players who include Charlie Rouse on tenor, Clark Terry on trumpet, Curtis Fuller on trombone, and Horace Parlan on piano – who are all in the group with Dave, alongside bassist Peck Morrison. There's a nicely unbridled feel to the whole set – a real "something extra" that's always made the album a treasure – and titles include the side-long 17 minute "Blues For JP", plus "Slop Jah", "Little Old Mongoose", and "Evad Smurd".

CTI/Epic, 1974. Used ... $3.99
Pretty mellow stuff from George Benson, but with some nice moments! Don Sebesky handled the arrangements for this set of larger backings – but Benson's guitar is right out front, hitting some super-dope lines at the best moments, stretching out from the warm Fender Rhodes or horn heavy backings. Highlights include "No Sooner Said Than Done", which has some very weird processing on the guitar; "Full Compass", which has some nice hard drums; and "Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams", a mellow moody track. CD also features 3 bonus tracks – the previously unreleased "From Now On", and new mixes of "Serbian Blue" and "Take The A Train". CD
