Georgie FameSurvival – A Career Anthology 1963 to 2015 (6CD set) ... CD
Universal (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s/2010s. New Copy 6CD ... $92.99 106.99
An incredible package of work by the legendary Georgie Fame – the first to ever fully document his talents, and also present a lot of rare work from every different stage in his career! Yes, there's already been a box on the market that documents Fame's early work – but that material only makes up the first CD or two on this set, and is quickly followed by loads of unusual tracks from the 70s – a time when Georgie was moving past the R&B-inspired sounds of his early career, taking off in new soulful modes, then returning to straighter jazz in later years. All that great span of sounds is here – and is a wonderful journey in music, as Fame never lost his charm, or the groove that first got him going – and the package brings together early Polydor material with later sides for Columbia, Island, Pye, and other labels – and includes 18 tracks that have never appeared before from the late 60s and early 70s, plus lots of other rare singles and unusual cuts too. There's a full unreleased live show from 1974 that's wonderful, some sweet electric early 70s sides that are appearing for the first time, and lots more too – all in a special box with 6CDs, a 48 page hardcover book, and a whopping 110 tracks in all. Take it from us – we're MASSIVE fans of this totally unique singer – and even though we have just about everything else we can get from him, there's still plenty here to make the box totally essential for our collection!

✨✧ Georgie FameTwo Faces Of Fame – The Complete 1967 Recordings (stereo/mono – with bonus tracks) ... CD
CBS/RPM (UK), 1967. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
The two faces of Fame are live and studio – as each side of the original album was recorded in each mode – and this great CD version goes a lot further, with stereo and mono mixes and a huge number of bonus tracks! The live numbers feature the Brit jazz vocalist swinging in a set recorded in early 1967 – done with lots of Hammond organ in the lineup, and an overall style that picks up a lot from Ray Charles and Mose Allison, but filters it through the groovier beat group styles of 60s London. The studio numbers are even better, and feature Georgie singing in more of a jazz-based mode – with lineups that feature some striking players that include Tony Oxley, Peter King, Gordon Beck, and Tubby Hayes. Tracks include a wonderful take on Mongo Santamaria's "El Pussycat", plus the tunes "Do It The Hard Way", "It Could Happen To You", "C'Est La Vie", "River's Invitation", "Greenback Dollar Bill", and "Keep Your Big Mouth Shut". Disc 1 also features 13 bonus tracks from singles and EPs released in 1967 – and disc 2 is completed by 11 MORE bonus tracks – 6 released for the first time ever, including "Jumpin The Gun", "Respoken", "Fool's Paradise" and "Conquistador".

Georgie FameWhole World's Shaking – Complete Recordings 1963 to 1966 (Rhythm & Blues At/At Last/Sweet Things/Sound Venture/Rarities/bonus) (5CD set) ... CD
Universal (UK), 1960s. New Copy 5 CDs ... $84.99 86.99
Four incredible albums from the young Georgie Fame – plus a bonus CD of rare material, bonus tracks on all CDs, and 18 previously unreleased tracks – all in a box set with a 48 page book, 5 postcards, and a poster too! First up is Rhythm & Blues At The Flamingo – blistering early work from a young Georgie Fame – a set that definitely lives up to the Rhythm & Blues in the title! The set was recorded live at London's hip Flamingo club – and Georgie and The Blue Flames are very much in command of the crowd – burning with the intensity of a American small organ combo, especially the early 60s variety that often played equal parts soul jazz and R&B! Georgie's on the Hammond, and also sings with a rough-edged style that's plenty soulful, and incredibly appealing – a mode that oozes charisma, but never sounds fake or forced. Titles include "Do The Dog", "Eso Beso", "Work Song", "Baby Please Don't Go", "Shop Around", "Humpty Dumpty", and "You Can't Sit Down". Fame At Last is a brilliant mix of jazz, soul, and R&B – all filtered through a mod sort of London freshness, as early proof that the city could always take some great things from our own musical roots, and feed it back to us with a whole new flavor! Georgie's no copycat here, though – and the sound is instantly Fame-like – a style that's really not the sort that any Americans were doing at the time, and certainly never this well. Hard-burning Hammond colors most of the tunes here – played with a tightly vamping quality – but it's Georgie's charmingly crackling vocals that really win us over! Titles include "Gimme That Wine", "Pink Champagne", "Monkeying Around", "Green Onions", "Let The Sunshine In", "Get On The Right Track Baby", "I'm In The Mood For Love", and "I Love The Life I Live". Sweet Things is a definite sweet thing from Georgie Fame – a record that has him filling in his sound even more than before, with tremendously soulful results! The backings here are bigger than before – a bit tooled in an American soul mode, but still with that beautifully raspy Georgie Fame touch – lots of jazzy inflections on the vocals, and a way of handling a tune, even a familiar one, and really working it on his own level. Hammond still fills in most of the tunes, but other instrumentation includes some nice African percussion from Speedy Acquaye, saxes from Pete Coe, and some nice bold drums from John Mitchell. These come out to the forefront on the classic funky tune "Music Talk" – and still sound great on other numbers that include "The World Is Round", "Last Night", "Dr Kitch", "My Girl", "Ride Your Pony", and "Sweet Thing". Sound Venture is one of the jazziest early albums from Georgie Fame – a set that has him singing with the big band of Harry South, at a level that's a lot more complicated than some of his other work with The Blue Flames! The style here still has that mod 60s London feel, but it also has some deeper inflections as well – modes borrowed a bit from Jon Hendricks or Mose Allison, yet served up with even greater complexity – at a level that really points towards the tremendous growth Fame would unleash over the next few years. Members of the group include Tubby Hayes, Ronnie Scott, Tony Coe, Dick Morrisey, Kenny Wheeler, and many other key Brit jazz figures of the time – and titles include "Three Blind Mice", "Dawn Yawn", "Feed Me", "Lovey Dovey", "Lil Darlin", "Lil Pony", "I Am Missing You", and "Many Happy Returns". CD5 is Bend A Little – a package with 20 unusual titles – demos, rare tracks, and outtakes – including unreleased tracks, IBC recordings, and even two German tracks too! Plus, each individual CD comes with bonus tracks – 40 bonus tracks, in addition to the 20 more titles on the Bend A Little set – a huge amount of material! CD

✨✧ Georgie FameGeorgie Does His Thing With Strings (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
CBS (Japan), 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great cover, and a great little record to match – one that has Georgie Fame singing with a host of string-heavy backings from the great Keith Mansfield! Given Mansfield's roots in the sound library scene, the style here is never as sleepy or hokey as you might expect from the "strings" in the title – but there is a moodier, mellower approach than you'd hear on other Fame albums – a style that's partially aimed at older jazz vocal modes, but which also echoes with sounds of the Scott Walker generation – a newly mature mode that's a really great fit for Georgie's unique style of singing, and which exposes yet another amazing side of his seemingly limitless talents! There's always a nice sense of warmth and wit going on – one that keeps these tunes from just being the usual sort of standard vocal fare of the period – and Mansfield's backings have a lean quality that often pulses with a very gentle groove at the bottom. Titles include "Who's Kissing You Blues", "Girl Talk", "This Guy's In Love With You", "A House Is Not A Home", "Woe Is Me", "Need Your Love So Bad", and "Guess Who I Saw Today". CD

A fantastic extended mono take of this classic cut from The Fame Gang – a tune that's got a hard-burning, fast-romping approach to funk – one that's much more like The James Brown Band on late 60s King records than the usual sounds of Muscle Shoals! "Crime Don't Pay" was never issued back in the day, and is another funky monster – with fast-breaking drums, and a totally wicked bassline underneath the organ and this weird siren-like use of what must be moog! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Some of our favorite work ever from the mighty Georgie Fame – key tracks from his years on CBS – when he was really moving past straight jazz, into a whole great style of his own! First up is the full album Georgie Does His Thing With Strings – a set that has Georgie Fame singing with a host of string-heavy backings from the great Keith Mansfield! Given Mansfield's roots in the sound library scene, the style here is never as sleepy or hokey as you might expect from the "strings" in the title – but there is a moodier, mellower approach than you'd hear on other Fame albums – a style that's partially aimed at older jazz vocal modes, but which also echoes with sounds of the Scott Walker generation – a newly mature mode that's a really great fit for Georgie's unique style of singing, and which exposes yet another amazing side of his seemingly limitless talents!

Titles include "Who's Kissing You Blues", "Girl Talk", "This Guy's In Love With You", "A House Is Not A Home", "Woe Is Me", "Need Your Love So Bad", and "Guess Who I Saw Today". Next is the rare Knock On Wood EP – with four songs that include the title track, plus "Close The Door", "All I'm Asking", and "Didn't Want To Have To Do It". THEN – the CD adds in 21 more bonus tracks – almost all non-album single cuts by Fame from the late 60s and start of the 70s – most of which have never been reissued, and are a flurry of mad soul, clever vocals, and lots of hip instrumental twists – all delivered with that undeniable Georgie Fame charm. Titles include "Down Along The Cover", "Seventh Son", "No Thanks", "Try My World", "Bidin My Time", "For Your Pleasure", "Kentucky Child", "Peaceful", "Entertaining Mr Sloan", "Someday Man", and "The Movie Star Song".

A great singer, in a great setting – the legendary Georgie Fame, working with a very cool small combo – live in action at Ronnie Scott's club in London! Fame plays piano and organ alongside his wonderful vocals – and the other instrumentation is great, too – with Alan Skidmore on tenor, Peter King on alto, and Anthony Kerr on Vibes – all part of a great group who shift and turn with all the sublimely soulful inflections that Georgie brings to his vocals! There's a few currents of the R&B roots that got Fame started here – but the music has more of that sophisticated swing he brought to his style once he got going – on titles that include "Vinyl" – a great song about record shopping – plus "Jimmy McGroove", "Zulu", "Tell Me How Do You Feel", "Cool Cat Blues", and "Mercy Mercy Mercy/Vanlose Stairway".

AVI, 1978. Very Good+ ... $2.99
The first album from Chicago soul singer James Wells – an artist with vocals that often run much deeper than some of his disco contemporaries at the time, and which really get a showcase here on some of the longer songs! There's often a lot of disco at the start of the records – long tunes that build the rhythms slowly, then layer in other elements before the vocals – but when James emerges on vocals, things really take off – and the singer is very well suited to the more upbeat backgrounds. Ian Levine – of UK Northern Soul fame – wrote and arranged the set – and titles include "I Guess That's Life", "True Love Is My Destiny", and "That's The Way The Wind Blows". LP, Vinyl record album

Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $7.99
A killer collection of soul, jazz, and R&B – all the kind of cuts that helped shape the sound of groundbreaking UK singer Georgie Fame in the 60s! Georgie drank heavily from a heady brew of American tunes in the years before he cut his own great records – and was always ready to credit the big influences on his music – either by covering their tunes, or by doing the best to keep on grooving in their own soulful styles! This sweet package offers up a great look at Georgie's roots – and offers up 25 tracks along with very detailed notes – all in a mod, soulful groove that's fully enjoyable on its own, even if you're not the sort of Fame fanatics that we are. Titles include "The Dog" by Rufus Thomas, "Sweet Thing" by The Spinners, "Pride & Joy" by Marvin Gaye, "Pink Champagne" by Joe Liggins, "One Whole Year Baby" by Earl Curry, "Eso Beso" by Paul Anka, "Gimme That Wine" by Lambert Hendricks & Ross, "All About My Girl" by Jimmy McGriff, "Funny How Time Slips Away" by Joe Hinton, "Shop Around" by The Miracles, "Sitting In The Park" by Billy Stewart, and "Monkeying Around" by William Bell.

History Of Soul (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
An excellent look at the sounds that gave birth to southern soul – that blend of blues, R&B, gospel, and other righteous sounds that were brewing below the Mason-Dixon line at the end of the 50s – which later rose to tremendous fame on labels like Stax and Atlantic! The tracks here are mostly from before a time when those labels focused on the music, though – and include a huge number of obscure singles we'd never heard before – all packaged with lavish notes on the music and full color images – clearly showing a lot more care to the presentation than you'd usually get for a collection of this nature. There's a whopping 55 titles in the set – and tracks include "The Wash" by The Varios, "Baby Come & Get It" by The Adorables, "Velma" by Roland Dice, "Everybody's Talking" by Bob & Peggy, "I'll Have To Let You Go" by Sally Stanley, "Goodbye My Love" by Oscar Perry, "I'm Cally My Baby" by Gene Vell, "Baby It's True Love" by Roscoe Shelton, "Why Not Give Me A Chance" by Jackie Verdell, "Keep On Trying" by Guitar Ray, "Bad Boy" by Fontella Bass, "Wait A Minute" by Barbara Stephens, and "Please Wait" by Charles James.

Mose AllisonV-8 Ford Blues (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $8.99
Classic work from one of the hippest jazz singers of all time – and a hell of a pianist too! Mose Allison began his recording career laying down piano on jazz sessions for Stan Getz and a few others – but here, he emerges as a fully-formed talent of his own – steeped in modes from the New Orleans scene, but also able to spin out his own uniquely hip approach – at a level that went onto have a huge influence on later generations of singers – from Dr John to Georgie Fame to Paul Weller – as well as the UK mod scene of the 60s! This album's one of a few that Allison cut for Epic Records, which are among some of our favorites – and titles include "Baby Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone", "Back On The Corner", "Mad With You", "Life Is Suicide", "I Love The Life I Live", and "Ask Me Nice". CD features three bonus tracks – "So Rare", "The Hills", and "High Jinks". CD

Herb Alpert & Hugh MasekelaHerb Alpert & Hugh Masekela ... LP
A&M, 1978. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Two top trumpet talents – coming together beautifully on this groovy late 70s set! Both Herb Alpert and Hugh Masekela had a big rise to fame in the 60s – Herb, for his Tijuana Brass albums on A&M – and Hugh, for the way that he brought South African jazz currents to the American soul mainstream! Given that both had strong presence on the Cali scene in their time, the pairing here is a great one – and works well with some larger jazz backings that color things out in a mix of soul, fusion, funk, and some slight South African touches. Other players on the set include Lee Ritenour and Arthur Adams on guitars, Paulinho Da Costa on percussion, James Gadson on bass, and Hotep Cecil Bernard on piano – and titles include "Skokiaan", "Moonza", "Lobo", "African Summer", "Ring Bell", and "Happy Hanna".

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".

AntibalasAntibalas ... CD
Daptone, 2012. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Amazing sounds from one of the best funky combos anywhere – ever! Antibalas have certainly risen to fame in the years since we first heard their Afro-styled grooves – working famously in the Fela musical, and reaching generations of ears with their own brilliant records. Yet throughout it all, they've always stayed true to their sound – and, if anything, are even sharper, tighter, and funkier than before – all extremely adept not only at playing their instruments, but at hitting the right sort of sound to cut through all the BS that was holding back funky Afro grooves for years! Part of that sound comes from superb Daptone production by Gabriel Roth – who really knows how to keep things lean and mean and full of energy. But the core credit really goes to the group – who never cease to amaze us here – and continually come up with fresh sounds on their keyboards and horns – and inventive rhythms to match! Titles include "Dirty Money", "The Rat Catcher", "Ari Degbe", "Ibeji", "Sare Kon Kon", and "Him Belly No Go Sweet". CD

Roy AyersStoned Soul Picnic ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $14.99
An early album as a leader from the great Roy Ayers – a set that captures the vibes man at a time when he'd been working on the west coast soul jazz scene, and was stepping into even greater fame in the group of Herbie Mann! Yet this set is definitely Roy's own – kind of an introduction to the more righteous sounds he'd pursue in the 70s, set up in an instrumental mode with great help from Herbie Hancock on piano, Gary Bartz on alto, Charles Tolliver on trumpet, and Hubert Laws on flute – all ultra-hip players who really bring a lot to the record! And despite the colorful cover, and its reference of a pop hit, there's a much deeper vibe going on here – on titles that include a great version of Jobim's "Wave" – done like we've never heard it before – plus the original cuts "What The People Say", "Lil's Paradise", and "A Rose For Cindy".

Amadou BalakeSenor Eclectico – Burkinabe Dance Music Of The 70s ... LP
Oriki (France), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $18.99
A definite eclectic groove here – music that has its roots in Mandingo and Dioula rhythms, but also features a fair bit of American funk and soul touches too – sometimes in the heavy grooves on the bottom, sometimes in the rumbling basslines and guitar parts too! The collection is a wonderful look at the early work of singer Amadou Balake – and it features material from the years before his international fame, when he was rooting around in a variety of wonderful styles. There's a gritty quality to most of the work here – and the collection is one that sits nicely next to some of the rougher-edged Nigeria Special sets on Soundway – offering up a similarly refreshing look at a slice of the African scene of the 70s that too often gets obscured by familiar world music cliches. Balake's vocals are pretty great too – but we'll be honest in saying that it's the rhythms, instrumentation, and production of these tunes that we're really digging the most! LP features 8 tracks that include "Aminata Du The", "Fanta", "Dounia Mokolou", "Djeli Fama", "Kambele-ba", "Ligda Remba", "Doro Magni", and "Super Bar Konon Mousso". LP, Vinyl record album

Gary BartzMusic Is My Sanctuary ... LP
Capitol, 1977. Very Good ... $19.99
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! LP, Vinyl record album

Count BasieOn My Way & Shoutin Again – Count Basie Plays Music By Neal Hefti ... CD
Verve, 1962. Used ... $3.99
A wonderful album of 60s Basie – one that focuses on the writing and arranging talents of the great Neal Hefti! Hefti's one of our favorite soundtrack composers of the decade, but in the years before his film fame, he was a frequent partner of Basie – and this album marks one of their greatest collaborations together. The tunes are very much in the "loud, then soft, then loud" mode that Hefti pioneered with Basie's angular group of the 50s – but they've also got some of the warmer, more whimsical touches that Neal would explore more fully in his later soundtrack work too. The result is a classic Basie session, but with plenty of surprises – featuring a fresh batch of tunes that includes "Jump For Johnny", "Ducky Bumps", "Rose Bud", "Shanghaied", "Together Again", and "Eee Dee".

Fontella BassFree ... LP
Paula, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Very righteous work from Fontella Bass – an album done after her time at Chess Records, and after her work in Paris with the Art Ensemble Of Chicago – in a heartfelt, southern soul mode that's totally great! Fontella's back working with producer Oliver Sain, who first brought her fame back in the 60s – but the sound is a bit more sophisticated than before, drenched with roots from gospel and country soul, but also inflected with some of the more righteous modes of the early 70s too. Fontella's vocals are incredible – with a range that should have made her one of the leading ladies of soul in the 70s – and titles include "To Be Free", "I Need Love", "Wiping Tears", "Hold On this Time", "Talking About Freedom", and "My God My Freedom My Home".

Beady BelleOn My Own ... LP
Jazzland (Norway), 2016. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99
Beady Belle's not really on her own here – just working away from her regular group, with an all-star batch of musicians that includes Bugge Wesseltoft on piano and Fender Rhodes, and the mighty Joshua Redman on tenor sax! The album's got even more of a jazz core than some of the other Beady Belle albums of the past decade or so – thanks especially to some strong rhythmic lines propelled by the drums of Gregory Hutchinson and bass of Reuben Rogers, who work really well with Bugge's always-great keyboard lines – especially that strong sense of soul that he's developed in his acoustic playing in recent years. The set was recorded both in Oslo and New York – maybe making the record one of Beady's most international in approach, and maybe appeal as well – which (we hope!) will finally give this amazing Scandinavian soul singer the American fame she deserves. Titles include "Traffic In Mumbai", "Castle", "On My Own", "Bury", "Almost", "Marbles", "Lost Face", "Dear Hope", and "The Clouds". LP, Vinyl record album

Jorge BenBig Ben ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1963. New Copy ... $16.99
Brilliant early work from Jorge Ben – a set that shouldn't be confused with the US album of the same name, and which is one of Jorge's first few gems of the 60s! The album's got Ben stepping out with a slightly jazzier feel than on his debut – a style that's still heavily steeped in the guitar-driven samba that first won him fame, but which also features a fair bit of bossa-influenced instrumentation too – bits of piano, flute, and horns that echo with some darker colors and tones that really add a lot to the tunes! The backings are never too full – nor too full of themselves – but this added level of sophistication really helps push Jorge into a range of fresh new sounds – and that's saying a lot, given how fresh his music from the time already was. Titles include "Agora Ninguem Chora Mais", "Telefone De Brotinho", "Patapatapata", "Na Bahia Tem", "Jorge Well", "Deixa O Menino Brincar", "Bom Mesmo E Amar", and "O Homem Que Matou O Homem Que Matou O Homem Mau".

Jorge BenSolta O Pavao ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1975. New Copy ... $16.99
An overlooked treasure from the great Jorge Ben – an album recorded between the fame of his "Taj Mahal" hit and Africa Brasil classic – and a set that's every bit as wonderful as those two records! There's a tight, choppy groove to most of the set – that mix of samba, soul, and currents of American funk that Jorge created in his music – turned here towards some of the unusual themes that showed up on his Tabua De Esmeralda album, but maybe given a bit more punch, too – so that even without the benefit of language, the vocals and grooves on the set are completely captivating to a global audience! There's loads of fresh sounds here – some real under-discovered gems from Jorge's key 70s years – and titles include "Cuidado Com O Bulldog", "Zagueiro", "Para Ouvir No Radio (Luciana)", "Jorge De Capadocia", "Dumingaz", "Se Segura Malandro", and "Jesualda".

Tony BennettComplete Improv Recordings (4CD set) ... CD
Improv/Concord, Mid 70s. Used 4 CDs ... $19.99
The complete recordings of a really lost time in the career of Tony Bennett – mid 70s sides cut for the tiny Improv label – an indie home to Bennett at a time of waning fame, and a place where he recorded some surprisingly exceptional work! The approach here often echoes that of the Columbia years of the 60s – possibly a bit outdated at the time, but even more timeless from our perspective of many years later – as Tony holds on to a really classic style of singing – matured even more than his earlier sides, yet still waiting for many more years to be rediscovered by a younger generation. The package features material originally issued on the albums Tony Bennett Sings 10 Rodgers & Hart Songs, Tony Bennett Sings More Great Rodgers & Hart, Live Is Beautiful, Tony Bennett & Bill Evans Together Again, and Tony Bennett/The McPartlands & Friends Make Beautiful Music – sessions originally recorded with help from Torrie Zito, Ruby Braff, Marian McPartland, Bill Evans, and others. 76 tracks in all – including alternates and unreleased numbers – with a detailed booklet of notes!

Brook BentonHome Style ... LP
Cotillion, 1970. Very Good ... $1.99
Wonderful work from Brook Benton – and the kind of record that always gets overlooked in discussions of southern soul, but which is proof that Benton's always been a key force in the genre! Brook virtually invented the style with his earlier country soul recordings – and by the time of this 1970 set, he's in perfect form vocally – and working under some wonderfully sophisticated arrangements by Arif Mardin. The result is the kind of cross-genre record that Brook could do effortlessly – and which should have made him huge, but instead kind of got him left behind by all the other folks who were copping his style. Yet with the strength of a record like this, we'll take that overlooked fame as still OK – because the set's a gem just waiting to be discovered by later generations like us! Rhythm's by the Dixie Flyers – augmented by jazz players that include King Curtis, Pepper Adams, and Joe Newman. Titles include "Aspen Colorado", "For Lee Ann", "Whoever Finds This, I Love You", "Don't It Make You Wanta Go Home", and "Let Me Fix It". LP, Vinyl record album

BlackbyrdsCornbread, Earl & Me ... LP
Fantasy, 1975. Very Good- ... $19.99
After the fame that the Shaft soundtrack brought to Isaac Hayes, it seemed like every funky group was trying to get in on the blacksploitation action – and Donald Byrd & The Blackbyrds were no exception! Cornbread, Earl, & Me wasn't exactly a Superfly-type film, but the group do a nice job of playing Byrd's score of funky instrumentals and sweeter jazz themes, written to fit the "coming of age" story of the film. The big sample cuts on here are the short cuts "Wilford's Gone" and "Soulful Source" – but there's a lot of other nice mellower numbers, like "Cornbread", "Riot", "One-Eye Two Step", and "The Gym Fight".

David BowieChanges One (180 gram pressing) ... LP
RCA/Parlophone, 1976. Sealed (reissue)... $19.99
Almost a "greatest hit" of "greatest hits" collection – given the importance of this album to the David Bowie catalog! Sure, it compiles tracks from other releases – but it also was the album that gave the world the killer cut "John I'm Only Dancing" – one of the key cuts in Bowie's gender revision in the 70s – and a title that was previously only out as a single! Alongside that gem, you also get a fantastic run of greatness from Bowie's first chapter of recording – the kind of cuts that would make other singers weep – including "Space Oddity", "Changes", "Ziggy Stardust", "Suffragette City", "Jean Genie", "Diamond Dogs", "Rebel Rebel", "Young Americans", "Fame", and "Golden Years".

Sony, Late 60s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s/Mid 2010s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $35.99 37.99
A pretty faultless 20 song compilation of classic Bowie – not so much a greatest hits collection is it is a collection of signature tracks from classic eras – from as far back as 1969's "Space Oddity" up to 2016's stunning "Lazarus". It's really one flawless track after another, and as wildly different in sound and style as individual tracks can be, Bowie is such a bonafide original that you can listen straight through. If you don't own every album, this is pretty great little collection of career highlights – with "Let's Dance', "The Man Who Sold The World", "Young Americans", "The Jean Genie", "Life On Mars (2016 mix)", "Under Pressure", "Starman", "Heroes", "Fame", "Modern Love", "Rebel Rebel" and more.

EMI, 1983. Used ... $5.99
A mega-hit for David Bowie – and an album that reduced some of the complexity of previous efforts, yet still managed to hold onto all that was great! There's definitely some massive chart material here, but the tunes are still some of the best of their time, pop-wise – tracks that bring forward the best dark corners of the Bowie mythos, and refine them slightly for a new generation – always in tunefully compelling ways. And despite the crossover fame of the set, it holds up surprisingly well over the years – possibly because of that status. Titles include "Modern Love", "China Girl", "Let's Dance", "Without You", "Criminal World", and "Cat People" (in a different take than the soundtrack version.) CD

David BowieLive Nassau Coliseum '76 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Parlophone, 1976. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
Bowie as The Thin White Duke – an epic concert on the Station To Station tour – captured at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, NY on March 23, 1976! This is wonderful snapshot of Bowie at a pivotal point, stepping into the rock-soul-funk period, but doing some of the best songs of his earlier career pretty incredible justice here, if quite a bit different than in the Ziggy Stardust era! The sound is big and perfectly suited to songs like "Station To Station" and "Fame", but but holds on the punchier guitar sound so key to songs like "Queen Bitch" and "Rebel Rebel". Other tracks include "Suffragette City", "Waiting For The Man", "Life On Mars?", "Five Years", "Panic In Detroit", "Changes", "The Jean Genie", "Diamond Dogs" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
