Cheap TrickEpic Archive Vol 1 – 1975 to 1979 ... CD
Epic/Real Gone, Late 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 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.

Tony OrlandoHalfway To Paradise – The Complete Epic Masters 1961 to 1964 ... CD
Epic/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 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!

Vivian ReedYours Until Tomorrow – The Epic Years ... CD
Columbia/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
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".

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 ... $25.99
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".

✨✧ MtumePrime Time – The Epic Anthology ... CD
Epic/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ 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)".

Carl AndersonAbsence Without Love ... LP
Epic, 1982. Very Good+ ... $2.99
A wicked little set from Carl Anderson – a singer who first found fame on the state, later sung in a spiritual world, but does an especially great job here! Anderson's got some really mighty pipes on the date – a vocal approach that's bold, robust, and plenty proud – stepping out with a bit more strength than some of his mainstream contemporaries in the early 80s – almost at a level that's in Luther Vandross territory, and we mean that in a good way. Production is by Richard Rudolph, who brings in the hip mix of sophisticated soul and jazz touches he used while working with Minnie Riperton in the 70s – especially near the end of her too-short life – and titles include the nice groover "Buttercup", plus "C'est La Vie", "Fooled Myself Again", "Lose That Girl", "AWOL", and "Amour".

A great set in the short run of classics that Carl Anderson cut for Columbia Records in the 1980s – albums that never cracked the charts that strongly at the time, but which have gone on to be remembered well over the years! On this record, Anderson nicely balances a tight groove with some looser, more personal vocals – in the process avoiding some of the stiffer cliches of the Columbia hitmaking crowd of the time – and reminding us that the label could still come up with classy, well-rounded soul efforts like this! Titles include "Let's Talk", "Can't Stop This Feeling", "Love On Ice", "Girl I Won't Take No", "Saving My Love For You", "Somebody Up There Likes Me", and "What Will Happen Now". Bonus cuts include "Let's Talk (UK rmx)", "Light Me", and "Can't Stop This Feeling (12" ext version)". CD

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".

BasiaSweetest Illusion (3CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/Cherry Pop, 1994. New Copy 3CD ... $11.99
A great one from Basia – a record that has the Polish soul singer hitting even warmer, jazzier territory than before – as her style matures nicely with help from keyboardist Danny White, who co-wrote most of the material on the set! There's a nice current here of the best UK soul of the period – that funky bump you might find from Soul II Soul, and that commitment to live instrumentation that returned in the 90s, after some too-programmed soul in the 80s. The singer's voice is perfect for this mode – and all these many years later, the album's got a much more timeless sound than we would have expected at the time. Titles include "Drunk On Love", "Sweetest Illusion", "My Cruel Ways", "Third Time Lucky", "An Oliver Tree", "Perfect Mother", "More Fire Than Flame", "Yearning", and "The Prayer Of A Perfect Housewife". Huge 3CD version – with 31 bonus tracks! The set includes a huge amount of instrumentals and remixes of album tracks – plus the titles "Go For You", "Clear Horizon", "Waters Of March", "Angels Blush", and "Half A Minute (rmx)". CD

A beautiful mid 50s issue of some of the classic material that Lester Young recorded with Count Basie during the late 30s – all nicely packaged with a great cover, and annotated in a way that offers a lot more information than the original release of the material on 78rpm discs! These are the records that made Lester a giant – and for good reason, as the Basie setting seems to propel Young's horn with even more force than it might have on its own – allowing a great setting for the fresh voice that would go onto transform generations of tenor players to come! The set features 12 tracks in all – and titles include "Moten Swing", "Taxi War Dance", "Dickie's Dream", "Jump For Me", "Song Of The Islands", and "Lester Leaps In". LP, Vinyl record album

Epic, 2015. New Copy ... $16.99
Adventurous ATL hip hop veteran Big Boi teams up with NYC electro pop duo Phantogram as Big Grams! Big Boi has never lacked for creative ambition – his one time repuation as the straighter-laced half of Outkast sold him short back in the day – as he always had a incredible way of adapting his flow, phrasing and lyrical focus to a diverse range of production styles. Big Grams finds a nice middle ground between Phantogram's bright, melodic synth pop style and the more beat heavy needs of a dexterous MC. Sarah Barthel's lovely vocals as sweet as ever, and work suprisingly well when paired with Big Boi's distinctive rhymes. Titles include "Run For Your Life", "Lights On", "Fell In The Sun", "Put It On Her", "Goldmine Junkie", "Born To Shine" with Run The Jewels and "Drum Machine" with Skrillex. LP, Vinyl record album

Colin BlunstoneJourney (UK pressing) ... LP
Epic, 1974. Very Good+ ... $11.99
The third solo album by Colin Blunstone – the magic-voiced singer who was lead vocalist of the Zombies, and went on to cut some god-like solo work in the early 70s! This album's a bit less sublime than Colin's first two – with tracks that veer a bit more towards the soft rock sound of the 70s, with some compressed AOR touches in place of the floating instrumentation of earlier albums – but it still sounds mighty nice to our ears, as Colin's voice is always a treat, and the record has a irrepressible charm in its optimistic presentation of some of the material. Essentially, if you dig Colin lots, you'll still want this one – as it's got more than a few nice moments – and is more of an evolution of his solo work than a divergence from it. Titles include "Setting Yourself Up", "Brother Lover", "Shadow Of A Doubt", "It's Magical", "You Who Are Lonely", "Beginning", and "Keep The Curtains Closed Today". LP, Vinyl record album
