Johnny BristolModern Soul Classics 1974 to 1981 ... CD
Playback, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
Johnny Bristol first got his start at Motown – where both his songwriting skills and studio talents graced an excellent range of singles and album tracks in the late 60s – but as the 70s moved in, Bristol really became a strong singer on his own – with a fantastic sound that we'd rank right up there with the best of the period, even though Johnny never fully got his due! In a way, Bristol was a bit like Lamont Dozier – another background talent who turned out an equally fine range of records as a solo star – and like Dozier, Johnny always remained his own man throughout his solo years – never giving into easy commercial tricks, or overdone disco cliches. Instead, the man was pure class, all the way through – with an especially strong ability to hit a mellow soul groove that's maybe rivaled only by Leroy Hutson or a rare few others. This package collects together all the best of those solo cuts, most of them sweet midtempo steppers or warm mellow numbers – with titles that include "Lusty Lady", "Go On & Dream", "Memories Don't Leave Like People Do", "Have Yourself A Good Time", "She's So Amazing", "I'm Waiting On Love", "Strangers In The Dark Corners", "Love No Longer Has A Hold On Me", "Take Me Down", "Till I See You Again", "I'm So Proud Of You", "Hold ON To Love", "Do It To My Mind", and "Woman Woman".

✨✧ Celia Cruz & Johnny PachecoCelia & Johnny (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Vaya/Fania (France), 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $21.99 22.98
A fantastic pairing of talents – one that seems to push each individual artist to a new high point in their career! By the time of the set, Johnny Pacheco was emerging as one of the strongest forces in 70s salsa – a crack percussionist whose instrumentation was driving on a younger generation of musicians with a new sense of pride and power – which made his music a beautiful fit for the richly expressive vocals of Celia Cruz! Cruz was no stranger to recording, but really seems to come across like a brand new talent here – really on fire, with a new sense of soul – taking flight in ways that really make the album a standout classic in the Fania catalog. The instrumentation is as wonderful as the vocals – and features some great work on tres by Charlie Rodriguez. Titles include the tasty groover "Quimbara", plus "Tengo El Idde", "Toro Mata", "El Tumbao Y Celia", and "Lo Tuyo Es Mental". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Otis & FriendsWatts Funky ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99 22.99
Some of the greatest funky work you could ever hope to find by Johnny Otis! The package brings together tracks recorded by Johnny in his fantastic post-R&B years – the late 60s and 1970s, when he was scrappling around a variety of small labels, but also getting the chance to use that freedom to cut some incredibly great work! The spirit of the CD retains all the great feel of Johnny's funky live show – as it runs through a variety of different artists, from hip instrumentalists to sock-soul divas to Johnny himself, who's still sounding pretty darn funky at the time! There's some killer material here that makes the package an instant "must-have" for fans of heavy heavy funk – and titles include "Watts Breakaway" by Johnny Otis, "Country Girl" by The Johnny Otis Show, "But I Ain't No More (GSTSKDTS)" by Vera Hamilton, "Spells & Incantations" by Debbie Lyndsey, "Cool Ade" by Preston Love, "Funky Disco Boogie" by Demar & Carla, "I Don't Understand It" by Ice Water Slim & The Fourth Floor, "If You'd Be Mine" by Shuggie Otis, "Comin At Ya Baby" by Johnny Otis, "Jaws" by Johnny Otis, "Hey Boy! I Want You" by Barbara Morrison with the Johnny Otis Show, "You Got To Do It Right" by Willie Jitterbug Webb, and the killer "The Humpty Dump" by The Vibrettes! Also features the previously unreleased "Miss Pretty" by Shuggie Otis! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Johnny KeatingThis Bird Has Flown ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite albums ever by Johnny Keating! Long before he discovered the moog for his 70s funk albums, Keating was cranking out some fantastic big band work during the 60s – mixing together odd rhythmic patterns in a way that set his work apart from most other Brit leaders, coming up with strange rhythms and cool ways of laying out a tune – so that even if the title was familiar, the track grooved in ways that you'd never expect! This early American LP is a real gem – filled with groovy tunes that chop and waffle wonderfully – as Johnny takes tracks like "Qui", "Shangri-La", "It Was A Very Good Year", "Ebb Tide", "Girl Talk", and "Canadian Sunset – carving them up with odd syncopation and weird horn parts, making them all a dreamy delight!

✨✧ Johnny SmithJohnny Smith Favorites ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Guitarist Johnny Smith in a sweet, laidback trio setting – just the kind of mode that's perfect for his gentle sense of color and tone – a style he virtually invented for jazz guitar in the 50s! The album's one of his classics for the Roost label, and it's a masterpiece in chromatic hues – subtle, simple, but completely fantastic – at a level that makes Johnny Smith one of the true legends in jazz guitar from the 50s. Accompaniment is by George Roumanis on bass and Mousie Alexander on drums – but both players are extremely gentle, and leave most of the sound to Johnny – as it should be. Titles include "Little Girl Blue", "My Funny Valentine", "Polka Dots & Moonbeams", "Everything Happens To Me", "Pavanne", and "Blues Back Stage". CD

✨✧ Mal Waldron/Johnny DyaniLive At Centro Jazz St Louis ... LP
Private (Italy), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic pairing of these two ultra-hip musicians – working together in a very open-ended, stretched-out live setting – with maybe an even freer feel than their better-known album together from a few years later! The music is relatively loose, but never too free as well – open, but very tuneful – and performed with the inherent sense of swing and soul that both bassist Johnny Dyani and pianist Mal Waldron always brought to their less-structured work. Mal is incredible on piano, but Dyani might really be the one here who blows us away – as he's shaping so many different sounds on his instrument, his creativity seems to be at an all-time high – with maybe some of the moments that he'd use with some of the freer British jazz groups of the 70s, but which were sometimes lost in the shuffle of louder sounds.

✨✧ VariousRandy's Studio 17 Sessions 1969 to 1976 ... CD
Voice Of Jamaica (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer collection of cuts recorded at the legendary Randy's Studio 17 – located at 17 North Parade in Kingston – an address you might recognize from its recent use for a great series of reissues! This set goes right back to the heart of the Randy's sound – and brings together fantastic cuts from a point when the Jamaican scene was really brimming over with soul – great vocalists shaking off the styles of ska and rocksteady, really hitting their stride as the international attention for reggae was starting to bloom. The vocals are great – still very much influenced by American soul, but really finding a power that's all their own – a deeper current of righteousness than you would have heard in Jamaican music a few years before. Most cuts were recorded and arranged by Bunny Striker Lee – sometimes pulled together as a criss-crossing of work from different sessions – and backings are by Lynn Taitt & The Jets, The Aggrovators, or Bobby Aitkin & The Carib Beats. Titles include "I'm Still Waiting" by Delroy Wilson, "Candida" by Owen Grey, "When A Boy Is In Love" by Pat Kelly, "The Tide Is High" by John Holt, "Mr Chatterbox" by Bob Marley, "You Send Me" by Pat Kelly, "Sunny Side Of The Sea" by Slim Smith, "Do It My Way" by Eric Morris, "Let The Power Fall On I" by Max Romeo, "Got To Come Back" by Ronnie Davis, "Walk Through This World" by Doreen Schaeffer, and "You Have Caught Me Baby" by Johnny Clarke.

✨✧ VariousSurefire Hits On Central Avenue – The South Central R&B Scene ... CD
Ace (UK), 1940s/1950s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic overview of the LA scene at the end of the 40s and into the 50s – seminal R&B work that made the city one of the greatest sources of music at the time! Before WWII, LA's recorded output was nothing much to speak of – but after the end of the war, the city really exploded as a host of small labels brought the rest of the nation work by the rich array of jazz, soul, and blues talents in the scene that had slowly been building with wartime migration from points south. The LA approach was a lot more sophisticated than that of other scenes – as audiences from previous down-home locales sought a hipper, cooler style to emphasize their new mode of living in the bigger city. Every track on here's a classic – and although you may have heard a few before, we've never seen an overview like this done so well! Titles include "Get Out Of The Car" by Richard Berry, "The Honeydripper" by Joe Liggins, "You Won't Let Me Go" by Johnny Moore, "Once There Lived A Fool" by Jimmy Grissom, "Decon's Hop" by Big Jay McNeely, "Ookey Ook" by The Penguins, "Heaven & Paradise" by Don Julian & The Meadowlarks, "Mary Lou" by Young Jessie, "Three Hours Past Midnight" by Johnny Guitar Watson, and "Pachuko Hop" by Chuck Higgins. 26 tracks in all!

Gary BartzMusic Is My Sanctuary ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $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! CD

Joe BataanSalsoul ... LP
Mericana, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A landmark album from Joe Bataan – so great, that it made the entire record company change its name! The record has Joe really bursting out after his seminal Latin Soul work of the late 60s – blending Latin rhythms and American soul into a whole new style of music – one that Joe called "Salsoul", because of it's mixture of salsa and soul! The blend is fantastic, a real milestone in the NuYorican scene – and handled perfectly by Joe on every cut! There's some massive Latin funk on here, including the tracks "Latin Strut" and "Aftershower Funk", plus some straighter Latin jazz, like "Sunny Gets Blue Mambo", and a great Latin Soul cut with English vocals called "Johnny".

ImpressionsImpressions/Never Ending Impressions ... CD
ABC/Kent (UK), 1963/1964. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
2 early gems from The Impressions – back to back on a single CD! First up is the self-titled Impressions – fantastic soul from the Chicago scene of the 60s – the legendary first ABC album by Curtis Mayfield and The Impressions! Although the group first broke big on Vee Jay Records, it was at ABC that their genius really took flight – tightening up the harmonies of the earlier singles, and hitting a mode that was a lot more soul than the doo wop of their roots! The sound here is a great bridge between the two eras of the group's career – and a number of the best tracks here are done in a mellow, gentle sort of way that relies heavily on the harmonies – crackling out with beautifully human sounds throughout. Nearly every tune is an original by Curtis Mayfield – and there's not a spot of filler on the album! Titles include "Minstrel & Queen", "Gypsy Woman", "Never Let Me Go", "Sad Sad Girl & Boy", "Little Young Lover", "Can't You See", and "I Need Your Love". Nice cover, too – with Curtis smiling the biggest ol' bucktoothed smile you'll ever see! Never-Ending Impressions is a major winner from The Impressions! Virtually all of their material for ABC was excellent – and this LP is no exception, as it's got loads of original Curtis Mayfield compositions, and plenty of great arrangements by Chicago soul legend Johnny Pate. The group is extremely soulful at this point – and they sound great on just about every cut. Titles include "Ten To One", "I'm So Proud", "Sister Love", "Little Boy Blue", "Girl You Don't Know Me", "I Gotta Keep Movin", and "A Woman Who Loves Me". CD

Southern Routes, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
The earliest work of the legendary Ike Turner – tracks recorded long before his 60s and 70s fame with Tina Turner – at a time when the man was both leading his own great combo, and adding his fantastic guitar talents to a host of different records! Turner had one of the strongest, wildest styles of the time – almost as much an important addition to the young sound of rock and roll as the guitar of Chuck Berry – although often used in more R&B-styled settings, such as the sides on this collection. The range of singers varies nicely – and the package features Ike working with Billy Gayles, Jackie Brenston, Johnny Wright, Clayton Love, Dennis Binder, Jimmy Thomas, Little Johnny Burton, and others – all while also serving up some incredible work on guitar! Titles include "Do Right Baby", "Hoo Doo Say", "Talkin About Me", All The Blues All The Time", "The Big Question", "I'm Tore Up", "Sad As A Man Can Be", "She Made My Blood Run Cold", "Hey Hey", "Wicked Little Baby", "Jack Rabbit", and "Gonna Wait For My Chance".

Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of InventionOne Size Fits All ... LP
DiscReet, 1975. Very Good Gatefold ... $12.99
Frank Zappa's got some fantastic fusion touches on this sweet little set from the 70s – thanks to keyboards and a bit of vocals from George Duke, heavy drums from Chester Thompson, and even some brief help from Johnny Guitar Watson! The set's still got a very Zappa-esque feel, but it's clear he's also letting Duke stretch his wings a bit too as there's parts of the record that almost echo the style of some of George's more far-out recordings for MPS. The balance is great – and one that makes the album a lot more soulful at points than we're used to hearing from Zappa. Titles include "Florentine Pogen", "Can't Afford No Shoes", "Inca Roads", "Po-Jama People", "Evelyn A Modified Dog", and "San Ber'Dino". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousBack On The Street Again – Australian Funk, Soul, & Psych (Mostly) From The Festival Vaults ... CD
Festival/Warner (Australia), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $16.99
A fantastic collection of rare funk and soul from the Australian scene of the 70s – and a collection that goes way past some of the more familiar ground covered by other compilations! There have been a few key looks at the Aussie scene over the years – all of them really revelatory assemblages of funky cuts that never got much circulation outside of the island nation – and which point to a surprisingly huge legacy of great sounds in the 60s and 70s – a time when Australia was riding high on new national growth and cultural pride! This set digs even deeper than those – and dips into a variety of genres, even some great funky rock – and pulls together cuts from the Festival label archive, plus a few other sources – really mixing in some gems we never would have heard otherwise, alongside a few bigger names from the scene. Titles include "Funky Max" by Johnny Rocco Band, "City Sounds" by Daly Wilson Big Band, "Voodoo Lady" by Dalvanius & The Fascinations, "Feel Awright" by The Id, "Superstition" by Ray White Revival, "Africa" by Festival Studio 24 Orchestra, "Weird & Wonderful" by Brute Force & His Drum Band, "The Rat Suite" by Blackfeather, "Sea That Swells" by Tamam Shud, "Odyssey" by Khavas Jute, "The Wrong Time" and "Indian Rope Man" by McPhee, "Painted Ego" by Count Copernicus & The Cosmic Fire, "Vehicle" by Al Style, "Be There In The Morning" by Renee Geyer, "Oz Bump" by Hot Source, "Do The Uptight" by Ross D Wyllie, "Back On The Street Again" by Billy Thorpe, and "A Day In The Life" and "Hair" by John Sangster.

Southern Routes, Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
The influence of Johnny Cash was a huge one in American music – not just in country, but in rock as well – especially given that some of Johnny's first important recordings came out on the Sun label from Memphis! Yet while the bigger sides of Cash's influence have been debated often over the years, he also had a huge impact on the underground, too – as you'll hear in this very cool collection of rare 45s that offer up a whole new version of the Johnny Cash sound! That fast-stepping rhythm of the early Sun singles informs most of these cuts – and Johnny's deep-voiced presentation of the lyrics also clearly has its place – as does the weird array of subject matter. But the whole thing is also way more than just a cheap cash-in collection (no pun intended!) – as the album's a fantastic portrait of the country underground that circulated on smaller indie labels, who mostly issued 45s. Titles include "Iron Man" by Bill Compton, "The Battle Of Earl K Long" by Ernie Barton, "Only Fools" by Wes Buchanan, "That's The Way It Goes" by Durwood Daly, "Long Legged Guitar Pickin Man" by Tar Heel Drifters, "Devil Train" by Johnny Doe, "Working All My Life" by Jim Nesbitt, "Lead Guitar Man" by Sammy Julian, "Ridin Fence" by Sleepy Labeef, and "The Cash Song" by Circle K Wranglers.

Johnny Pate/Four TopsShaft In Africa (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
ABC/Think (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $29.99
One of the greatest blacksploitation soundtracks ever – a massively beautiful record that goes beyond any cliches of the genre, and serves up a fantastically unique batch of tracks! Chisoul arranger Johnny Pate did the music for the film – and (dare we say it?) it's even greater that Issac Hayes' work for the first Shaft film – with a depth, sensitivity, and soul that's really amazing – and which has kept the record at the top of our crates for many years. The 4 Tops turn out a great later vocal on the album's theme tune "Are You Man Enough" – and Johnny himself does stellar work on the tracks "Shaft In Africa", "Headman", "You Can't Even Walk In The Park", "El Jardia", "Jazar's Theme", and "Truck Stop"!

Sublime work by the Santo & Johnny team! You probably know their monster hit "Sleepwalk" – the cornerstone of this early album, and a fantastically moody blend of electric and pedal steel guitar, with a slow spacey surf sound that captivated millions of earholes when it first came out! That cut alone is worth the price of the album, but Santo and Johnny manage to come up with lots more instrumentals in very much the "Sleepwalk" mode – including "All Night Diner", "Slave Girl", "Dream", "School Day", and "Caravan".

✨✧ VariousSalseando – Selected By Raphael Sebbag ... CD
Salsoul/Octave (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A rich serving of salsa gems from the legendary Salsoul/Mericana Records label – all hand-picked by Japanese DJ/collector/musician Raphael Sebbag! 20 years ago, Raphael worked similar magic with the huge Fania catalog – turning out a series of key compilations that also accompanied his work in United Future Organization – and now Sebbag takes an overdue look at the early years of Salsoul – that time when the label wasn't yet putting out disco music, and instead created a very strong catalog of some of the best underground work on the New York scene! The music here is a great indie representation of sounds that are a lot less familiar than those during the big years of Fania – and as such, there may well be a lot more experimentation going on – more chances with new ideas, and other great elements that make these tracks really shine. The 2CD set features a whopping 38 tracks in all – and titles include "El Fumigador" and "El Que Tenga Sabor" by Latin Dimensions, "Soy Guinero" and "Sabrosona" by Roberto Torres, "Una Pregunta" and "Tambores Pa Yemaya" by Raul Marrero, "People Make The World Go Round" by Saoco, "Cuando En Pesar Se Convierta La Risa" and "El Galleton" by Tempo 70, "Soul Makossa" by Johnny Zamot, "Un Coro Africano" by Orquesta Power, "Borracho No Vale" by Rey Roig, "No Puedo Mas" by La Fantastica, "Decidete" by Libre, "Chambelona" by Cachao, "Muchacho Ordinario" by Joe Bataan, "Ese Eres Tu" by Ray Rodriguez, and "Aguanta La Bronca Compay" by Los Jigmaguas.
