Clarence CarterFame Singles Vol 2 – 1970 to 1973 ... CD CD format
Kent (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Sublime sounds from Clarence Carter – wonderful work from his second wave of singles for Fame Records – a wealth of great music from a time when Carter was really coming into his own! Clarence was great right from the start, but here you can really hear him finding his own voice – that all-knowing, storytelling approach that could make even a simple lyric spin out in a way that was totally captivating – with a quality that set Carter apart from some of his more tear-jerked southern soul contemporaries, into a space of class and confidence that would serve him well for years to come! Every number here was recorded at the Fame Studios, with the kind of killer backings you'd expect from the Muscle Shoals team – and although the singles were initially issues over a few different labels (Fame, Atlantic, and United Artists) – they're brought together here in complete order, for a massive 22 track set. Tracks include "I'm The One", "I Hate To Love & Run", "Slipped Tripped & Fell In Love", "Say It One More Time", "It's All In Your Mind", "Sixty Minute Man", "Heartbreak Woman", "Love's Trying To Come To You", "I Found Somebody New", and "Put On Your Shoes & Walk" – plus "If You Can't Beat Em", which is a duet with Candi Staton!

Georgie FameBallad Of Bonnie & Clyde ... LP LP format
Epic, Late 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
One of the few American albums ever issued by Georgie Fame – a great set of tracks from his early CBS years, put together with a package that was bound to appeal to US fans digging the Bonnie & Clyde movie! The work here is a hip mix of jazz, soul, and R&B styles – all served up with that Georgie Fame charm that made his music unlike anyone else's at the time. And although we're not sure, it appears that there's a few tracks here that might not have been issued on LP back in the UK – as the set list features 11 tracks that include "Mellow Yellow", "Bullets La Verne", "This Is Always", "Side By Side", "Blue Prelude", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "Ask Me Nice", "When I'm Sixty Four", and "The Ballad Of Bonnie & Clyde".

Georgie FameShorty ... CD CD format
CBS/Rev-Ola (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $3.99
An excellent little album from British vocalist Georgie Fame – one that has him moving way past the simple beat group sound of his roots, into a sophisticated style that mixes jazz vocalizing, hard grooving, and lots of rock/R&B influences! Georgie's still got his Mose Allison-inspired vocal style, but the band behind him is a lot more open-ended, and grooves along freely in these great organ riffing rhythms – open-ended and very swinging on some numbers, but in a way that's different from Fame's rougher-edged roots. Titles include "Oliver's Gone", "Somebody Stole My Thunder", "Fully Booked", "Inside Story", "Seventh Son" and more. CD

Georgie Fame & Alan PriceFame & Price/Price & Fame/Together (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Made In Germany (Germany), 1972. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
A great reunion of two grown-up figures from the bluesier side of the British scene of the 60s – vocalist Georgie Fame and ex-Animal Alan Price, both of whom really sound great together! After leaving The Animals, Price worked strongly in the UK as a solo act – often hitting grooves that were similar to Fame's R&B-drenched material, and making him a great counterpart for an album like this. Fame's style is tighter and warmer than Price's – and the numbers that feature both artists singing together have a great sense of interplay – two very unique voices that are extremely comfortable with each other, and encourage a nice sense of personality and presence. Overall, the album's often a bit more bluesy than Fame's usual work – but in a great way that illustrates that he was always up for a new mode of expression. Titles include "John & Mary", "The Dole Song", "Yellow Man", "Rosetta", "I Can't Take It Much Longer", "Blue Condition", "Ballad Of Billy Joe", and "Home Is Where Your Heart Is". CD

George JacksonFame Sessions (colored vinyl) ... LP LP format
Fame/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
What the what?!? Soul sides so great they'll blow your mind – even though none of them have ever been issued before! George Jackson is one of the great lost talents of southern soul – an artist who often stayed in the background, lending his talents to others in the studio, or as a writer – but a hell of a strong artist on his own – as you'll hear in this package of 24 recordings done at the legendary Fame Studios! Jackson's vocals are great – nice and gritty, plain and honest, and with just the right sort of focus to perfectly serve up the poetry of his lyrics. And the backings are wonderful, too – that simple, soulful groove that Fame did so well – often slow-burning on the rhythm tip, with production that lets George shine right out front in the mix. Why these cuts were never issued at the time is a mystery to us – as they could have made George and a few other folks a nice little fortune and a good deal of fame. But as with most discoveries like this, the obscurity of the tracks also makes for a freshness that we love too – as if we've taken a time machine back to a period we love, and found a way to hear the "real deal" right up close! Special LP version – featuring a dozen tracks from the Fame CDs – including "Greedy Over You", "Double Lovin", "Don't Count Me Out", "Save Me", "That From The Heart", "Add A Little Sunshine", "Let The Best Man Win", "I Bit Off More Than I Can Chew", and "Bite The Hand That Feeds You".

A classic disco stormer from Grace Jones – recorded at Sigma Sound with a real Philly groove, thanks to arrangements from John Monster Davis – and produced with a full, soaring sound from the legendary Tom Moulton! The set may well be Grace's true club classic from the late 70s – a record that works both on the quirky levels of her early rise to fame, and on the more soulful expectations mainstream clubgoers had at the time – a beautiful balance that owes plenty to the input from Davis and Moulton! Titles include "Do Or Die", "Pride", "Fame", "Below The Belt", and "Am I Ever Gonna Fall In Love In New York City". CD

Dan PennFame Recordings – 24 Gems From The Writer's Mid 60s Apprenticeship At Fame ... CD CD format
Fame/Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $9.99
A tremendous discovery in soul music – previously unreleased demos from the legendary Dan Penn – one of the key songwriters in the Fame Studios/Muscle Shoals scene of the 60s! Dan's tunes had an undeniable impact on southern soul for decades to come – yet Penn hardly issued any singles himself – just sang on these in-house recordings as a way of demonstrating the strength of his songs! Yet Penn's vocals are amazing – as raspy and soulful as any of the big names who recorded his work – and backed here by superb Fame support by the core combo of Spooner Oldham on piano and organ, Jimmy Johnson on guitar, and Roger Hawkins on drums. Oldham co-wrote most of the tunes with Penn, and really gives them a slow-burning, all-soul feel with his keyboard lines – and although demo recordings, the production here is every bit as great as commercially-released material from Fame – making the collection sparkle like the lost album (or albums!) that Dan Penn never had at the time. Titles include "Keep On Talking", "Feed The Flame", "Strangest Feeling", "I Do", "It Tears Me Up", "Uptight Good Woman", "Far From The Maddening Crowd", "The Puppet", "Long Ago", "Slippin Around With You", and "Do Something".

VariousComplete Fame Singles Vol 1 – 1964 to 1967 ... CD CD format
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $21.99
Legendary work from one of the greatest soul labels ever – a tiny Alabama imprint that helped bring the Muscle Shoals sound to the masses – thanks to the work of producer Rick Hall, and his crack band of session players! The music here set a whole new standard for soul in the south – and really helped bridge older 50s modes and the new wave of more expressive, more sophisticated singers – an evolution that you'll really hear over the span of the label's complete singles, even in this first volume. A few names here are big – like Jimmy Hughes and Arthur Conley – but there's also some great lesser-knowns that really make the collection great – some singers we never even knew recorded for Fame, and a few session players as stars on their own – like Dann Penn or Spooner Oldham. Titles include "Wish You Didn't Have To Go" by Spooner & The Spoons, "Party Talk" by June Conquest, "She Wants What She Can't Have" by Terry Woodford, "You're Gonna Lose That Girl" by The Villagers, "In The Same Old Way" by Arthur Conley, "You Can't Believe Everything You Hear" by Jimmy Hughes, "The Road Of Love" by Clarence Carter, "Take A Good Look" by James Barnett, "Let Them Talk" by Dann Penn, "A Piece Of My Heart" by Art Freeman, and "Time Will Bring You Back" by Jimmy Hughes. 52 tracks in all – with both a and b-sides too!

That organization has always done great things for country – and here, they turn their special talents towards this lesser-known side of Music City – in a book that's very heavy on vintage images, including rare photos, ads, and other cool music bits as well!

Fame/Beracah, 2014. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
Candi Staton returns to Fame Studios – and the results are almost as classic as her recordings from decades before! The set returns Staton to a secular deep soul setting – and the production and instrumentation are nicely down-home, but never in a way that's cliched or cloying – like some LA producer trying to recreate his idea of the real deal! Instead, the whole thing's got a nice indie vibe – with just the right Muscle Shoals blend of moody organ lines and compressed rhythms – backing up that voice that still hasn't lost any fire over the years. Titles include "Never Even Had The Chance", "Eternity", "Commitment", "Where Were You", "Three Minutes To A Relapse", "You Treat Me Like A Secret", and "A Better World Coming". CD

Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $28.99
Not the Chicago group of AACM fame, but a completely different Japanese combo from the 70s – a very cool outfit who are equally avant in their approach – and work together in a very spiritual blend of acoustic and electric sounds! The album features one long track, improvised in a very organic way – so that the spare sounds build up into these parts rich in meaning, but still with plenty of sharp edges – based on work from Yasuo Shimura on flute, amplified soprano sax, Arp, and radio; Renkichi Hayashi on guitar, ring modulator, and other effects; Nobuyoshi Ino on electric and acoustic bass, Turkish guitar, and tape recorder; Hiroshi Murakami on drums and percussion; and Yuji Imamura on amplified and acoustic tabla, plus other percussion. The sound's as compelling as the instrumental lineup – and the album's comprised of one long jamming track "Air (parts 1 & 2)", with a groove that ranges from funky and break-oriented, to wild and free out-oriented soloing.

David Amram & George BarrowJazz Studio No 6 – Amram-Barrow Quartet/The Eastern Scene ... LP LP format
Decca, 1957. Very Good- ... $38.99
An enigmatic set of modern jazz – recorded by the Amram-Barrow Quartet – an obscure group led by tenor saxophonist George Barrow and horn player David Amram, the latter of whom would go onto great fame in the 60s and 70s for his groundbreaking arrangements, soundtrack work, and world/jazz experiments! At this point, Amram's a young modernist with some very fresh ideas – and contributes some wonderful original tunes to the session with a moody east coast style that almost has traces of the Mingus camp – particularly the work of Jimmy Knepper and Pepper Adams. George Barrow's tone on the tenor is really tremendous – sharp and soulful, reminding us a bit of the freshness that Hank Mobley brought to some of his early sessions in the 50s, but with less of a hardbop fire. The rhythm in the group is by Arthur Phipps on bass and Al Harewood on drums (Amram plays a bit of piano as well) – and titles include "City Talk", "Someday Morning Will Come", "Somewhere Along The Way", "Phipps Quipps", "Lobo Nocho", and "I Love You".

Harold AshbyHarold Ashby Quartet (aka Presenting Harold Ashby) (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Progressive, 1978. New Copy ... $12.99 15.98
An excellent solo date from tenorist Harold Ashby – a musician who first rose to fame in the Duke Ellington Orchestra of the 60s, but who also had a rich history of previous work in both jazz and blues as well! Ashby's got a wonderfully deep tone – very much in the Lester Young school, but with some very personal inflections too – and more than enough fresh phrasing to really hold our interest, even on some of the more familiar numbers on the set. There's a softness to Harold's attack that might be a bit misleading at first – but he more than makes up for that with a resonance on some of the longer lines on the set. The group's a quartet – with Don Friedman on piano, Ronnie Bedford on drums, and George Mraz on bass – and titles include "Cous Cous", "Dainty", "Pleading", "Quickie", "Days Of Wine & Roses", and "Candy". CD features four bonus alternate takes, too! CD

New Atlantic StarrAll In The Name Of Love ... LP LP format
Warner, 1986. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A mid 80s classic from Atlantic Starr – at the height of their catchy commercial fame – bouncing along with rhythms that crossover nicely to the mainstream, yet still keep a bit of their previous funky edge intact! The groove here is almost in the style that Atlantic Starr inspired in so many other younger groups in the earlier part of the 80s – although it's also a bit more polished too. Most instrumentation is electric, and tunes are mostly written by the team of David and Wayne Lewis – both of whom sing on the record. Barbara Weathers also handles female vocals, and titles include "Once Lover At A Time", "Let The Sun In", "My Mistake", "I'm In Love", "Always", "Don't Take Me For Granted", and a version of Sam Dees' "All In The Name Of Love".

David Axelrod & OthersAxelrod Chronicles ... CD CD format
Fantasy, Early 70s. New Copy ... $4.99 14.98
It's great to see that David Axelrod's finally getting his due – and this reissue of material from Fantasy is one of the first reissues of his work in the US! Most cuts here are much more jazz-based than Axelrod's higher-concept material under his own name for Capitol in the late 60s – and the music represents Axe's key move to Fantasy after bigger label fame – a move that he made with Cannonball Adderley, who also figures in on some of these tracks. The CD features 8 tracks from Axelrod's Full Axe album – a tasty bit of funky fusion that's one of his best jazz-oriented releases – plus a sampling of tracks from other albums he produced and/or arranged for Fantasy. Titles from Full Axe include "My Family", "Mucho Chupar", "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing", and "Everything Counts" – and other tracks include "Cantaro" and "Solitario" by Gene Ammons, "Bach" and "Sierra Morena" by Hampton Hawes, "Quit It" by Nat Adderley, "Goodbye So Long" by Funk Inc, and "Stayin Place" from the Big Man 2LP set.

Gary BartzMusic Is My Sanctuary ... CD CD format
Blue Note, 1977. Used ... $6.99
A fantastic bit of jazz funk fusion – and one of the landmark 70s albums produced by Larry Mizell! This is Gary Bartz's second (and most amazing) collaboration with Larry Mizell – a studio genius who could focus on the best talent of a jazz artist, then expand it using additional keyboards, percussion, and often a sweet bank of chorus vocals to give the tracks an extra soulful sound! By the time of this album, Larry had already worked to great fame with Donald Byrd, Bobbi Humphrey, and Johnny Hammond – and the record has him turning his talents towards Gary Bartz to unlock a whole hidden side of soulful expression that would never be matched again! The title cut – "Music Is My Sanctuary" – is a jazz fusion classic in anyone's book, and it features characteristic Mizell keyboards alongside Gary's soulful sax, augmented by a deep vocal chorus that's simply fantastic. Other highlights include "Carnaval De L'Esprit" and "Macaroni" – and the whole album's nice! CD

Walter Bishop JrSpeak Low ... CD CD format
Jazztime/Muzak (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $20.99
A rare early date as a leader from pianist Walter Bishop Jr – cut for a tiny east coast label that folded almost as soon as the record was issued – but a date that's gone onto great fame over the years, thanks to circulation in a few different formats! Bishop's got a really maturing approach here – as sharp as his work from the bop years, but with a deeper sense of tone and color too – occasional lyrical moments that get great shading from the bass of Jimmy Garrison and drums of GT Hogan – both players who make the album really something special – a real cut above the usual trio session. In that manner, the record features two tunes that run for nearly 10 minutes each – opening up in that reflectively soulful mode that Bish would be known much more for in later years – and titles include "Speak Low", "Milestones", "Green Dolphin Street", and "Blues In The Closet". CD features three bonus alternate takes too! CD

Some of the sharpest, jazziest funk you'll ever hope to hear – a smoking collection of the legendary 70s work by The Blackbyrds on Fantasy Records! The group started as a jazz combo under Donald Byrd's supervision – right at a time when Byrd was making his own fantastic funky records in the 70s – but working for the Bay Area Fantasy label, they really took off into an amazing groove that was all their own – still informed by jazz, but free to open up to lots of funk and soul elements too – sometimes with vocals in the lead, sometimes more focus on the kinds of solos that always set them apart from all their contemporaries! The cuts have some wonderful keyboard work from a young Kevin Toney – who's gone onto a lot of fame over the years – and production on all cuts is either by Larry Mizell, Donald Byrd, or George Duke – key 70s jazz funk forces who keep things mighty tight in the studio! The package features work from all Blackbyrds albums of the 70s – including the Cornbread Earl & Me soundtrack, and the Night Grooves remix set – and the package features 25 titles that include "Enter In", "Party Land", "Do It Fluid", "Gut Level", "Summer Love", "I Need You", "The Baby", "Blackbyrds' Theme", "City Life", "Rock Creek Park", "Walking In Rhythm", "A Hot Day Today", "Wilford's Gone", "One Gun Salute", "Supernatural Feeling", "Mysterious Vibes", and "Soft & Easy".

A tremendous live set cut during the height of David Bowie's years in Berlin – and the kind of performance that showed that his more experimental work from this time could be every bit as appealing as the classics! The first half of the set features some amazing numbers from the Heroes and Low years – presented here with some darker orchestrations that sound really wonderful, and which slightly recast the styles of the tunes on the albums. The second half mixes in some older classics with a few surprising bits – making for the kind of "star appeal" that must have been welcome to more mainstream Bowie fans during these more obscure years. 17 tracks in all – including "Beauty & The Beast", "Breaking Glass", "Speed Of Life", "What In The World", "Heroes", "Warszawa", "Soul Love", "Star", "Art Decade","Fame", "TVC 15", and "Ziggy Stardust".

Billy BrooksWindows Of The Mind ... LP LP format
Crossover, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Funky trumpet galore – and a lost break classic! At the time of this 1974 LP, Billy Brooks was an obscure LA trumpeter working in the Ray Charles band – and although this record didn't bring him instant fame when it was released, it's grown to become a groove classic over time – and always in demand these days! The standout cut is the sample track "Forty Days" – a masterpiece of jagged drums and floating horn work, sampled to great fame by Tribe Called Quest, and instantly famous for years after. The whole album's great, though – a funky big band mix of electronic and acoustic playing, with some really mad numbers! Tracks include "Shetter Cheeze", "Good News Blues", "Cooling It", "Black Flag", "Shetter Cheeze", and "CP Time". LP, Vinyl record album

Brothers JohnsonOut Of Control ... LP LP format
A&M, 1984. Near Mint- ... $3.99
The Brothers Johnson are hardly out of control on this mid 80s set – as the album's got a tight groove that shows the duo are still going strong long past their 70s fame! As before, there's a bit of bounce on the bottom – that bassy groove that the pair first crafted back in their Quincy Jones days, topped with some sweet keyboards too – and punched up a bit on the rhythms, in styles that are in keeping with the changes in soul at the time. There's a nice degree of warmth on some of the best numbers here – and titles include "Lovers Forever", "Do You", "Let's Try Love Again", "Out Of Control", "Save Me", "Tokyo", and "It's All Over Now". LP, Vinyl record album

Dave BrubeckA La Mode ... LP LP format
Fantasy, 1960. Very Good+ ... $14.99
An unusual Dave Brubeck set from the start of the 60s – surprisingly on Fantasy, given his Columbia fame of the time – and with a slightly different lineup that features the great Bill Smith on clarinet! Smith's got a cool modern sound that's not unlike Jimmy Giuffre – icy but expressive too, and both a great fit for the band because and apart from their usual work with Paul Desmond! Eugene Wright's still on bass, and Joe Morello plays some wonderfully time-kept drums – on titles that include "The Piper", "Frisco Fog", "Lydian Line", "Ballade", "One For The Kids", "Catch Me If You Can", and "Peace Brother". LP, Vinyl record album

Keni BurkeChanges (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
RCA/FTG, 1981. New Copy ... $9.99 16.98
A standout solo moment from the amazing Keni Burke – an artist who's come a long way from his youthful start in the 5 Stairsteps! Keni had recorded other adult work by the time of this early 80s set, but Changes is easily his best-remembered album – a masterpiece of 80s groove, all arranged and produced by Burke – who also played a fair bit of the music on the set as well! The tunes are upbeat and grooving – often with a rhythm that goes nicely right down the middle, and never tries to be too funky or clubby. This groove is epitomized by Burke's classic "Risin' To The Top" – a tune that's been sampled heavily over the years, to great fame – and which is probably the lasting legacy of this set. But the whole album's totally great – sophisticated 80s groove at its best – with other cuts that include "Who Do You Love", "Shakin", "Can't Get Enough", "Changes", "All Night", and "Hang Tight". CD features bonus tracks – "Shakin (7" mix)", "Can't Get Enough (7" mix)", and "Risin To The Top (7" mix)". CD

Gary BurtonSeven Songs For Quartet & Chamber Orchestra ... CD CD format
ECM (Germany), 1974. Used Gatefold ... $9.99
A really wonderful setting for the vibes of Gary Burton – a special ECM session that pairs his quartet with larger orchestral backdrops – all conducted by Michael Gibbs, who also wrote the music for the date! Gibbs had already risen to fame by the time of this record – thanks to some groundbreaking albums for large ensembles on the British jazz scene of the late 60s – where he demonstrated a tremendous ear for intimate tones and subtle sounds amidst a larger group. Here, that talent turns out to work perfectly for the rich tones of Burton's vibes – allowing them to develop slowly and spaciously, despite the larger orchestra. The core quartet also features Michael Goodrick on guitar, Steve Swallow on bass, and Ted Seibs on drums – and titles include "The Rain Before It Falls", "Three", "Phases", "Throb", and "Nocturne Vulgaire/Arise Her Eyes".

GC CameronLove Songs & Other Tragedies ... CD CD format
Motown (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
A tremendous solo act from GC Cameron – a singer who first rose to fame in The Spinners, but who really sounds wonderful on his own! GC's moved away from The Spinners here – into a wide range of styles that show him ready to take on most of the rest of the competition! He's working here with the best of the best of Motown – production from Stevie Wonder and Willie Hutch – and arrangements by both, plus Paul Riser, Gene Page, James Carmichael, and Frank Wilson – all of whom really give their best to the record, and show that Motown was putting plenty of effort into making GC one of the next big stars of the 70s. We're not sure why things never took off as strongly for Cameron, but whatever the case, the album's a great step for the solo artist – on cuts that include "If You Don't Love Me", "Tippin", "All In Love Is Fair", "If You're Ever Gonna Love Me", "Come Get This Thang", "I'm Gonna Give You Respect", and "Let Me Down Easy".
