Georgie FameGeorgie Does His Thing With Strings/Knock On Wood/CBS Singles ... CD
CBS/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $11.99
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! 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". 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".

Georgie FameName Droppin' – Live At Ronnie Scotts ... CD
Go Jazz/Somethin Cool (Japan), 1997. New Copy ... $19.99
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".

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 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

Go Jazz/Somethin Cool (Japan), 1998. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The great Georgie Fame hardly sounds wounded here – as the singer's in the middle of a great return to form in the 90s – a decade that saw him cutting some tremendous albums like this! Fame's in his home turf of London – working with a small combo at Ronnie Scott's, and turning in songs that have a perfect blend of blues and soul roots mixed with Georgie's unique jazzy inflections – at a level that's even more sophisticated than his work in the early days! The group is great too – with Anthony Kerr on vibes, Guy Barker on trumpet, Alan Skidmore on tenor, and Peter King on alto – and Fame sings tracks that include "Cape Cuckoo", "If You Live", "Eros Hotel", "Abide With Me", "The Woodshed", "Zavolo", and "It Happened To Me/My Buddy".

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

Go Jazz/Somethin Cool (Japan), 2000. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
We LOVE Georgie Fame – he's one of the coolest, hippest jazz singers who ever walked the face of the earth – and, what's more, he never seemed to lose his groove – even on a session like this, cut late in his career! In fact, there's a hipness here that really takes us back to some of Fame's best work of the late 60s – that straighter jazz material he cut after starting out in R&B – with amazing inflections on his vocals, and a way of sliding in with the instrumentation like nobody else! Georgie blows us away with his approach to the tunes – mostly familiar numbers, but mixed with a few of his own compositions – and given sublime accompaniment from a combo that features Bob Malach on tenor, David Hazeltine on piano, Peter Washington on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums. Titles include "Doodlin", "Accentuate The Bass", "Girl Talk", "That's The Way It Goes", "Declaration Of My Love", "Turned In To You", and "Do It The Hard Way". CD

Kent (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99
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!

Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
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.

Cannonball AdderleyThings Are Getting Better ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1958. Used ... $4.99
An album that definitely lives up to its title – given the great change and evolution in the style of Cannonball Adderley's music – definitely pointed towards the soul jazz fame to come in the 60s! The group here has Adderley's alto in the company of some all-stars who may not be his regular group, but who definitely help keep the whole thing at a top-shelf level throughout – a quintet that features Milt Jackson on vibes, Wynton Kelly on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Art Blakey on drums. There's still a few echoes of Cannon's earlier bop recordings, but the sound is also moving towards the new modes to come – especially on the classic title cut "Things Are Getting Better". Other cuts include "Just One Of Those Things", "Sounds For Sid", "Groovin High", "Serves Me Right", and "Blues Oriental". CD

Cannonball Adderley with Bossa Rio SextetCannonball's Bossa Nova ... CD
Capitol/Riverside, 1962. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Cannonball Adderley recorded this nice little groover in 1962, when American musicans were just getting on the bossa tip, and still keeping things pretty authentic. The record was cut in New York with Sergio Mendes' early Bossa Rio group – the legendary Brazilian jazz ensemble that featured Paulo Moura, Dom Um Romao, and Durval Ferreira. The mixture of tight bossa rhythms and Cannon's soulful sax is totally great – and it's only because the Riverside label was folding at the time that the record never got bigger fame. It's here now, though, and the record's a real treat – especially at this price! Includes the cuts "Joyce's Samba", "Clouds", "Minha Saudade", "Corcovado", "Batida Diferentes", and "Sambops". Plus, the CD also features bonus single versions of "Corcovado" and "Clouds"! 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

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+ ... $14.99
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".

Paul AnkaWalk A Fine Line ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $13.99
Paul Anka may be hiding his balding pate under a hat on the cover, but the album's got the singer being very open with his style – and hitting a great AOR mode for the 80s! Anka may have hit a few clunky spots in the 70s – but he's maturing nicely on this overlooked album from the following decade – working a gentle current of soul with his vocals, amidst arrangements from David Foster, Michael McDonald, and producer Denny Diante – with a smooth vibe that's never trying too hard for any sort of easy crossover fame. Most cuts are originals by Anka – showing his songwriting skills in fine form – and titles include "Second Chance", "Golden Boy", "Gimme The Word", "This Is The First Time", "No Way Out", and "Darlin Darlin".

Atlantic StarrAll In The Name Of Love ... LP
Warner, 1986. Sealed ... $2.99
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".

Chet Baker & Bud Shank/Leith StevensTheme Music From The James Dean Story (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Pacific Jazz (Japan), 1956. Used ... $9.99
Although the initial release of this music was a cheap attempt to cash in on the tragic fame of the late James Dean, this 1956 session was also one of the nicest big band dates to come out of the Pacific Jazz catalog of the 1950s! Chet Baker and Bud Shank are the featured soloists of the set – and the group's conducted by Johnny Mandel and Bill Holman, both excellent arrangers with a strong feel for soundtrack-oriented material of this sort. Tommy Sands sings vocals on a version of "Let Me Be Loved", which is the only standard on the set – as the rest of the tracks are originals by the great Leith Stevens. The band's filled with other west coasters that you'll recognize – and titles include "The Movie Star", "Jimmy's Theme", "The Search", "Lost Love", and "Rebel At Work". CD

Amadou BalakeSenor Eclectico – Burkinabe Dance Music Of The 70s ... CD
Oriki (France), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
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! CD features 13 tracks that include "Aminata Du The", "Fanta", "Dounia Mokolou", "Djeli Fama", "Kambele-ba", "Warba", "Wayisjelequeyele", "Ligda Remba", "Doro Magni", and "Super Bar Konon Mousso". CD

Count BasieBasie Plays Hefti ... LP
Roulette, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $1.99
Tremendous work from one of the greatest pairings in 50s jazz – the crack later group of Count Basie and the amazing arranging talents of the great Neal Hefti! Hefti later went onto greater fame as a 60s soundtrack composer, but back in the day him and Basie were an incredible team together – as Hefti's talent for quirky, witty, whimsical horn passages really opened up the Basie sound of earlier years – and took the band far past any Kansas City cliches, into a groove that was much more suited for a modern audience! This album's one of the best the two ever cut together – and it's overflowing with Hefti gems that include "Cute", "Pensive Miss", "Sloo Foot", "Scoot", "A Little Tempo Please", "Count Down", and "Pony Tail".

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 BenBen (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1972. New Copy ... $11.99 18.98
A stunner of a record from the mighty Jorge Ben – and a record that catapulted the Brazilian singer to international fame at the time! Ben had already been making magic for almost a decade down in Brazil – and his compositions and grooves left an undeniable impact on the scene in the post-bossa years – but this album has Jorge really emerging as the global soul star he was destined to be – from his powerful stare on the cover, right down to the grit in the grooves! The sound here is a refinement of the samba soul mode that Ben had been brewing up from the late 60s onward – a skittish mix of older samba elements, American soul, and some slight fuller production that really comes into its own here – mixing all the acoustic elements at the core with just a slight electric flourish, but never losing its edge in the process – all to provide Jorge with a sublime backdrop for his really amazing vocals. The set's a monument in funky Brazilian soul – and it includes the huge hit "Taj Mahal", which still sounds great, even after all these years – plus loads of other gems that include "O Circo Chegou", "Domingo 23", "Fio Maravilha", "Paz E Arroz", "Morre O Burro Fico O Homem", and "Que Nega E Essa". A gem all the way through – and a record we'd never part with! CD

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 ... Just Sold Out!
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".

Brook BentonHome Style ... LP
Cotillion, 1970. Very Good+ ... $2.99
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

Andy BeyExperience & Judgment (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/Be With (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99 31.00
An incredibly righteous record from the legendary Andy Bey – an artist who's risen back to fame in recent years as a relatively straight jazz singer – but who was in some very heady territory here in the early 70s! Bey first rose to fame as part of the vocal trio, Andy & The Bey Sisters – and while that group's 60s recordings were already wonderful, Andy soon stepping out into tremendous territory of his own – working with Max Roach, Horace Silver, and Gary Bartz – and adding some unique spiritual and socially conscious vocals to some of their best jazz records at the end of the 60s! This set's one of Andy's few solo moments from the time – and really follows up the groove strongly – with lots of help from the mighty William Fischer, who wrote some of the tracks, and plays keyboards – although Bey is clearly the main compositional force here. The album includes a remake of "Celestial Blues", which Bey recorded famously with Gary Bartz – and which is in a leaner, even funkier take here – and other titles include "Being Uptight", "Tune Up", "Hibiscus", "Experience", and "The Power Of My Mind".
