✨✧ First ChoiceHold Your Horses (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Gold Mind/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rochelle and the girls are in full force on this late 70s Salsoul groover – with production by Norman Harris and Tom Moulton! The opening trio of cuts have the continuously flowing vibe of an extended suite – and it's a really exhilarating 16 minutes of dancefloor soul – with gorgeous lead and harmony vocals, funky bass grooves and unexpected changes among the club soul standard-bearing sounds. The drum heavy sections of "Let Me Down Easy" and the title track stand out strongly amongst those, but there's lots of nice little twists throughout! Other titles include "Love Thang", and "Double Cross". 7 bonus tracks on this CD edition from Big Break Remasters: "Now That I've Thrown It All Away", "Let No Man Put Asunder (12" Disco Madness Remix)", "Love Thang (12" Disco Mix)", "Double Cross (12" Larry Levan Remix)" and more.

Harry Belafonte/Lord FleaEarly Years At Capitol ... CD
Capitol/DRG, 1949/1957. Used ... $4.99
Two early calypso albums on Capitol Records – both pretty unique! First up are some of the first-ever recordings by Harry Belafonte – material recorded in 1949, with Pete Rugolo backings that are really amazing – as jazzy and modern as anything Rugolo did for other singers of the time, with only a hint of calypso in the rhythms. Belafonte sounds quite different on the sides than in later years – still with those tremendous vocals, but almost more of a jazz singer at points – which is a really surprising discovery! This aspect's supported strongly by the choice of tunes – which includes "Deep As The River", "Farewell To Arms", "Close Your Eyes", "The Didn't Believe Me", and "I Still Get A Thrill". Next up is a full album of straighter calypso material by Lord Flea & His Calypsonians – but one that also has a bit of a Capitol Records groove! Flea plays acoustic guitar and sings, and percussion is nice and tight – but there's also a fuller sense of space on the record, one that really sets it apart from other 50s efforts of this type – kind of a Capitol clarity that really adds a lot of charm. Titles include "Out De Fire", "Mister Give Me De Rent", "It All Began With Adam & Eve", "Jump In The Line", "Run Run Run", "Love", and "Monkey". CD

Jimmy CampbellJimmy Campbell's Album ... CD
Philips/Esoteric (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $5.99
Beautifully sensitive work from Jimmy Campbell – a record with a lot more depth than you might guess from the gimmicky image on the cover! Campbell returns here to spare, fragile territory throughout – working with instrumentation that's mostly just acoustic guitar and a bit of rhythm, plus occasional piano and organ – all in a style that reminds us of Biff Rose at some of his best late 60s moments, which is a pretty good comparison – considering Jimmy's uniquely personal style of singing, and his personally poetic choice of lyrical topics! The album's a real overlooked gem – the kind of singer-songwriter treasure that's arguably more suited to a hip audience these days than it might have been when first released back in the early 70s. Titles include "April Morning", "Paris You're In Paris", "Salvation Army Citadel", "By The Light Of A Lamp", "Maudie", "Baby Walk Out With Your Darling Man", "It Never Rains But It Pours", and "When You're Coming Home".

Brian ColemanCheck The Technique Vol 2 – More Liner Notes For Hip Hop Junkies (paperback) ... Book
Wax Facts Press, 2014. New Copy ... $25.99 27.98
Golden age of hip hop historian Brian Coleman's second Check The Technique tome – the in-depth stories behind some of the greatest records of the 80s and early 90s – an even greater collection than the first volume! Coleman's approach is straight-forward and direct – chronicling a choice selection of 25 bonafide classic albums, breaking them down track-by-track, peppered by interviews with the artists, producers and other principle personalities behind the work, for the most honest histories that Coleman can get. Volume 2 uses a broader time frame than the previous collection, going as far back as 1981's Wild Style Breakbeats, and as recent as the late 90s for Mos Def & Talib Kweli's Black Star and The Coup's Steal This Album. Other records discussioned include The Cactus Album by 3rd Bass, A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing by Black Sheep, The Sun Rises In The East by Jeru The Damaja, Mantronix The Album, Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Links, Stetsasonic In Full Gear, Stunts, Blunts & Hip Hop by Diamond & The Psychotic Neurotics and more. Like the author's Check The Technique Vol 1 and Rakim Told Me, it's vital hip hop history, breezily readable and engrossing as can be. 525 paperback pages, and each chapter includes photos of the artists, the records and associated singles, and other choice historical tidbits. Essential! Book

✨✧ Dream SyndicateDays Of Wine & Roses (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, Early 80s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
The essential first album from Dream Syndicate – one of the great rock albums of it's time and the very foundation for many other great ones to follow! Moody and real, this is ranscendent stuff that ignored the rock and pop trends of the early 80s, production wise, and carried stronger influences from the likes of the Velvet Underground and Big Star – and ultimately ended up making a huge impact on the best indie rock to follow in their wake. That's a bit ironic, given that Dream Syndicate recorded for Warner, but speaks volumes for their independent spirit! Titles include "Tell Me When It's Over", "Definitely Clean", "That's What You Always Say", "Wen You Smile", "Until Lately", "The Days Of Wine And Roses" and more. This excellent CD version from Omnivore includes some choice rarities for bonus material – including some never before heard recordings, rehearsal tapes, and even a mesmerizing 10 minute jam that's more akin to 70s art rock than we'd ever heard from the group. Amazing! 15 tracks in all. CD

Gloria GaynorNever Can Say Goodbye ... CD
MGM/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
The start of a very successful run for Gloria Gaynor – a seminal bit of crossover 70s soul – one that perfectly linked the dancefloor with the airwaves, and managed to take on more than a few living rooms as well! Gloria's not entirely in full blown disco-diva mode yet, and works here with a soaring Philly-styled groove – of the sort you'd hear with groups like First Choice or Three Degrees – almost grounded a bit in earlier female soul, especially in the vocals and overall changes in the grooves – yet sparkled up plenty with some fuller, richer 70s arrangements. Those are handled by Norman Harris and Harold Wheeler – who do plenty to warm up the production by Meco – and the set includes the stunning 6 minute version of Gloria's big hit "Never Can Say Goodbye", plus "All I Need Is Your Sweet Lovin", "We Belong Together", "Real Good People", "Honey Bee", and "Reach Out I'll Be There".

Ron Henderson & Choice Of ColourGemini Lady ... CD
Grapevine/Soul Junction (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 19.99
A 70s soul genius – even if you've never heard of the guy! Ron Henderson's a real enigma – a totally great soul artist who recorded throughout the 60s and 70s, but never really cracked the big time – thanks to the fact that his work was spread out over a number of different labels, and never given the push or full album release it deserved. His sound is one that rivals the best bigger names of the 70s mellow soul era – and Ron's got a wonderful talent for gently grooving rhythms and lovingly laidback tunes – in a style that reminds us a bit of Bobby Wilson, or of some of Leroy Hutson's first solo work, and which has a similar evolution as the 70s progress. This excellent CD finally gives Henderson his due – and presents a total of 20 tracks recorded during the early and mid 70s – all packaged with great sound and a full set of notes on Ron's life and music. Titles include "Gemini Lady", "I Feel I Have It In Me", "Your Love", "Problem Child", "The Other Side", "Hooked On Your Love", "Yours Is The Love I Want", "I'll Be Around", "Baby I Wanna Be Yours", "Sunshine", "Mary Green", "You're Twenty One Today", and "She Pleases Me".

✨✧ Loose ChangeLoose Change (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Casablanca/Big Break (UK), 1979. Used ... $8.99
A near-lost Philly disco album – recorded at Sigma Sound, but released on Casablanca at the end of the 70s – one that was almost buried under the weight of the label's collapse at the time! There's a style here that borrows bits from some of Casablanca's more mainstream artists – focusing strongly on the hooks of the tunes, and putting the female vocals upfront – but still swirling around in some mighty club arrangements from the Sigma team. Loose Change themselves are a trio in the Philly mode of First Choice or Three Degrees – and titles include "Rising Cost Of Love", "Straight From The Heart", "Darling, That's Me", "Babe", and "I Wanna Hold On To You". A total gem! This Big Break UK remastered edition has 3 bonus tracks: "You Never Done It Like That", "My Place Or Your Place" and "Straight From The Heart (Single Version)". CD

Thollem McDonas/William Parker/Nels ClineGowanus Session ... CD
Porter, 2012. Used ... $6.99
A rich array of tones and sounds from the trio of Thollem McDonas on piano, William Parker on bass, and Nels Cline on guitar – all served up in a heady brew that grabs us right from the very first note! Some of the sharper tones of McDonas and Cline are warmed up nicely by Parker's bass – a great choice for the trio, as it helps ground the more experimental modes of the other two players, yet still give them plenty of freedom to shift and shimmer as much as they want. At times, there's almost a trembling sort of quality to the music – which really makes the set sound unique – and titles include "There Are", "As Many Worlds", "In A Life", "As There Are", "Lives", "In The World".

Blue MitchellCup Bearers ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1962. Used ... $6.99
One of the first albums to really show Blue Mitchell's genius as a leader – recorded past the more formulaic bop modes of some of his other Riverside sessions, and handled with a lyrical edge that really gets at the best aspects of his playing. Of course, part of the reason for this is that Blue's in the company of some of his Horace Silver bandmates – including drummer Roy Brooks, tenorist Junior Cook, and bassist Gene Taylor – but even more than that, the presence of a young Cedar Walton on piano really makes the set sparkle, as does the choice of some extremely strong material – such as "The Cup Bearers" and "Capers", both written by that young and glowing jazz compositional lumiary, Tom McIntosh, and the tunes "Turquoise, written by Walton, and "Dingbat Blues", written by Charles Davis. Forgive the long sentence, but the quality of this one's best expressed in a single breath! CD

✨✧ OddiseeGood Fight ... LP

The best yet from Oddisee! Be it a solo set or one of his group efforts with Diamond District, Oddisee has never lacked smarts or confidence, but there's assertive strengh to tracks on here that up the ante. He's really come into his own as one of the most reliable voices in independent hip hop, and as good as as Good Fight is, the sky is the limit with Odd-, and we get the feeling he's still on the rise! Includes "That's Love", "Whant Something Done", "Contraction's Maze", "Counter-Clockwise", "First Choice", "Belong To The World", "A List Of Withouts", "Meant It When I Said It", "Fight Delays", "What They'll Say", "Worse Than Before" and more.

World Circuit/Nonesuch, 1982. New Copy 2LP ... $25.99 26.98
Hardly a pirate album at all – and instead one of the first big global moments of fame for the mighty Orchestra Baobob – a Senegalese combo who'd really been honing their craft during the 70s! The album has the group working with all the soulful currents of their early work – and especially that inflection from Cuban styles that made some of the groups in Dakar so unique – a special trans-Atlantic handshake between the nations that really helped these guys take off once they got exposure on a record like this! Titles include "Coumba", "Utru Horas", "Werente Seringe", "Ray M'Bele", "Toumaranke", "Ngalam", and "La Rebellion". LP, Vinyl record album

ShirellesHappy & In Love/The Shirelles (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1971/1972. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Two albums and bonus tracks too – all rare material from an overlooked chapter of The Shirelles' career! First up is Happy & In Love, a great second chapter for The Shirelles – hardly the girl group pop they cut in the 60s, and instead a more righteous soul style for the 70s – in a mode that's like Honey Cone or Three Degrees! The backings are nice and soulful – almost funky at times – with arrangements from George Andrews and Joe Scott that mix fuller strings with tighter grooves at the core – in a way that really sets the vocals free amidst some very interesting material! Had the girls only cut this record, it might have been a 70s soul hit – but it's unfortunately gotten lost to the shifting sands of time because it's not as iconic as their hits. Don't make that mistake, though, because the album's a real charmer – and titles include "Boy You're Too Young", "There's Nothing In This World", "It's Gonna Take A Miracle", "Take Me", "We Got A Lot Of Lovin To Do", and "Strange I Still Love You". The 1972 album The Shirelles is surprisingly great later work by The Shirelles – nice and soulful, thanks to arrangements from David Van De Pitte and Wade Marcus – both of whom push the trio way past their roots, into more sophisticated group soul for the 70s! The approach carries the best (then) contemporary styles from New York and Philly – particularly that strong way of mixing group vocals with focused grooves – as you'd hear from some of the more successful male groups of the time on RCA, like Main Ingredient or Choice Four. The Shirelles have a strong sense of harmony that really pushes the tunes forward – and the material is nice and creative – with titles that include "Walk On In", "Brother Brother", "Sunday Dreaming", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Let's Stay Together", "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart", and "Drowning In The Sea Of Love". CD also features bonus tracks – "Let's Give Each Other Love", "Do What You've A Mind To", and "Touch The Wind". CD

Sonny Til & The OriolesLive In Chicago 1951 ... CD
Uptown, 1951. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
A really unique setting for The Orioles – a group who are best known for their doo wop material of the mid 50s, but who have a heck of a lot more to offer too! This live set from the start of the decade features the group at Chicago's mostly-jazz Blue Note club – a downtown venue that's a surprising choice for the group, and one that also seems to bring out a bit more of a jazz flair in their vocals as well! The style definitely has all the dexterity and wonderful harmonies of their famous studio work – but there's also an approach that has the Orioles picking up a bit more class and sophistication too – the kind of generation-bridging sound that you might hear from The Ravens at the same time. The recording is very well done – and the lead vocal of Sonny Till gets support from the group's other four members, who also play just a bit of guitar and bass underneath the harmonies. Titles include "So Long", "You Are My First Love" "I've Got A Gal 65 & I'm Just 23", "Would I Love You", "It's Too Soon To Know", "Barbara Lee", and "I May Be Wrong". CD

VariousDance Your Ass Off To Salsoul Remixes ... CD
Salsoul/Ultra, Late 70s/2013. New Copy Gatefold ... $9.99 14.98
The title borrows a slogan from the late 70s disco years at Salsoul Records – but the groove here is 21st Century all the way – thanks to a host of very contemporary-styled mixes that take older classics from the label, and infuse them with a modern dancefloor groove! Even back in the day, Salsoul had a great ear for key club talents who could expand on their strong blueprints for disco grooves – and here, they re-show that same strength, but in a completely different way! Titles include "I Got My Mind Made Up (DJ Dan rmx)" by Instant Funk, "Jingo (Federico Scavo rmx)" by Candido, "Doctor Love (White Noize rmx)" by First Choice, "Love Break (Stephane Luke rmx)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "I Never Knew" by Jessie Andrews, "Find Somebody (J Paul Ghetto rmx)" by Inner Life, "Hit & Run (Joe T Vannelli diva rmx)" by Loleatta Holloway, and "By The Way You Dance (Julien Jabre rmx)" by Bunny Sigler.

VariousMike Maurro – Peak Hour Remixes (3CD set) ... CD
Harmless (UK), 1970s. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99
Classic cuts, given amazing new edits and remixes by the Mighty Mike Maurro – at a level that's every bit as great as the Tom Moulton collections we've loved from Harmless Records! Like those gems, this one focuses on the most soulful side of the 70s clubs – especially the early cuts that crossed over into the discos, but before "disco" was any sort of standard format – just some very groovy upbeat soul coming from the Philly and New York scenes! Like Moulton, Maurro's got a way of really opening up the shorter originals – finding the best bits and augmenting them as he stretches things out and creates these beautifully extended grooves. 3CD set features 21 tracks, but most run near the 10 minute mark, or past – which makes for well over 3 hours of music – mixes of tracks that include "Side Show" by Blue Magic, "The Love I Lost" and "Bad Luck" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Shame" by Evelyn Champagne King, "Young Hearts Run Free" by Candi Staton, "Burnin Up" by Imagination, "Waching You" by Slave, "Searching" by Change, "Stay Free" by Ashford & Simpson, "Vertigo/Relight My Fire" by Dan Hartman, "Weekend" by Phreek, "Doctor Love" by First Choice, "Tried Tested & Found True" by Ashford & Simpson, "Los Conquistadores Chocolates" by Johnny Hammond, "I Want You For Myself" by George Duke, and "Deeper" by New Birth.

Motown/MoWest/Light In The Attic, Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
The first ever compilation of the best music made for MoWest – the eclectic, but still soulful cuts made when Berry Gordy Jr. relocated from Motown to the west coast in the early 70s – releasing cool and sometimes strange music with a soul background, yet toasted by LA sunshine! The MoWest subsidiary lasted just a few years, and gets overlooked in the canonization of Motown at it's most classic and revolutionary – but the legacy is pretty incredible. Funk, sunshine rock and soul fused adventurously by a stunningly diverse roster – late period Frankie Vallie & The Four Seasons (who's comp-opening track is a slept on sunshine pop-soul classic), breezy-jazzy-soul from Odyssey, the sister funk of Sisters Love, a stunning solo left turn from Spinners singer GC Cameron and more great stuff from Syreeta, The Commodores, Suzee Ikeda, Thelma Houston and others. We've been dying for a well selected MoWest comp like this for years, and Light In The Attic stepped to the plate and knock it right out of the park. The songs choices are great, the notes are great. . .everything about it is a win. Essential! Includes "You're A Song (That I Can't Sing)" and "The Night" by Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, "Our Lives Are Shaped By What We Love" and "Broken Road" by Odyssey, "Don't You Be Worried" by The Commodores, "A Heart Is A House" Nu Page, "I Ain't Going Nowhere" by Thelma Houston, "I Can't Give Back The Love I Feel For You" by Suzee Ikeda, "You've Got To Make The Choice" and "Give Me Your Love" by The Sisters Love and more.

Suss'd/Salsoul (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2CD ... $18.99
Some of the funkiest tracks ever recorded for the mighty Salsoul label – a heady batch of groovers that have plenty of heavy bass and full-on drums! The set's a real surprise to anyone who's ever thought of Salsoul in lusher, more traditional disco terms – because the album's overflowing with massive breaks and catchy little grooves – equally appealing to fans of late 70s funk as they are listeners looking for a sweeter disco groove. Plus, many of the tracks are represented in some great mixes that bring out some of the best elements of the tunes! 2CD set features 23 tracks in all, plus a great set of notes – and titles that include "Such A Feeling (original Shep Pettibone 12")" by Aurra, "Call Me (orig 12" mix)" by Skyy, "Getaway (original 12" mix)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "Sing Sing (original 12" mix)" by Gaz, "All About The Paper (Bobby DJ Guttadaro LP mix)" by Loleatta Holloway, "Funtown USA (orig 12" mix)" by Cameron, "Rapper Dapper Snapper (orig 12" mix)" by Edwin Birdsong, "Party (orig 12" mix)" by Cubby St Charles, "Boogie's Gonna Get Ya (orig 12" mix)" by Rafael Cameron, "Love Having You Around (radio edit)" by First Choice, "Do It Til You're Satisfied (orig 12" mix)" by Barbara Joyce, "If You're Looking For Fun (orig 12" mix)" by Weeks & Co, and "Wide World Of Sports (LP version)" by Instant Funk.

VariousSpiritual Jazz 5 – The World ... CD
Jazzman (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $14.99
Easily the coolest collection so far in the amazing Spiritual Jazz series – and a set that shows the truly global growth of the genre during the Coltrane generation – on tracks from such far-flung scenes as India, Australia, Israel, Turkey, and beyond! The music is often quite exotic – core jazz elements mixed with more offbeat instrumentation, but almost always driven by a modal-styled groove – the kind of rhythmic energy inspired by McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison, and Elvin Jones – but served up here by other contemporary players, and a few from the next generation as well. As always with Jazzman, the song choice is sublime – so much so that the record includes a few gems we knew, but forgot about, mixed with other tracks we're hearing here for the first time ever! Great notes support all the musical choices – and titles include "Pondo Blues" by Eric Nomvete's Big Five, "Song For My Lady" by Louiz Banks, "Islamic Suite" by Charlie Munro, "Mezare Israel Yekabtzenu" by Jazz Workshop, "Koy Yolu" by Jazz Semai, "Vicky" by Jorge Lopez Ruiz, "Sobre El Orinoco" by Virgilio Armas, "Raga Rock" by Braz Gonsalves Seven, "Trane Ride" by Tete Mbabisa, "Um Allah" by Aquila, and "Destroy The Nihilist Picnic" by London Experimental Jazz Quartet.

Nice fusiony jazz done with soul and airy atmophere by Paul Horn – including some choice covers, and sounds that range from fusiony jazz with a little bit of funk and more lilting numbers lifted by flute and wordless vocals! Horn has a tendency to go head first into a more new agey vibe, but here we get a more grounded approach with more soul and bits of funk in the bass, keys & percussion. The players include Larry Carlton, Joe Sample and Tom Scott. Includes a nice takes on a trio of Stevie Wonder numbers: "Too High", "Visions" and "Living For The City", Joni Mitchell's "Blue" and "Chelsea Morning" (the former featuring some vocals and keyboards by Joni), plus "High Tide"., "Long Time Gone", "Song With No Words" and "Dida".

Ennio MorriconeLe Foto Proibite Di Una Signora Per Bene/Il Ritorno Del Ringo ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1965/1970. New Copy 2CD ... $26.99
A pair of legendary Ennio Morricone scores – back to back in a very limited collection! First up is one of our favorites – Le Foto Proibite Di Una Signora Per Bene – one of the greatest soundtracks ever from the legendary Ennio Morricone – a real standard-setting record that's one of the top choices we go to again and again to illustrate the genius of his music! The score is a fantastic mix of the two best sides of Morricone's work – the kind of light, lilting melodies that are schooled in bossa, but turned loose on their own devices – and the darker, more atonal passages that would come to play more strongly during the 70s. The light wins over the darkness in most of the record – especially the tracks that feature the sublime wordless vocals of Edda Dell'Orso, which swell and fall with the movement of the strings and keyboards. The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include "Le Foto Proibite", "Nel Vuoto", "Intermezzino Pop", "Amor Come Dolore", and "Quelle Foto". The second soundtrack is the striking spaghetti western classic – Il Ritorno Di Ringo – penned for the second Ringo film in the 60s, and with music that's even more compelling than the first! There's a great Morricone sense of balance in the mix – as gentle moments mix with darker ones, on titles that include "The Return Of Ringo", "The Disguise", "Sheriff Carson", "The Fuentes", and "The Wedding & The Revenge". Also includes all the material from the rare album "La Storia I Dialoghi Le Canzoni De Il Ritorno Di Ringo" – which features Italian dialogue about the film from the film, plus music as well. CD

Brilliant sounds from the global underground – an excellent in this wonderful series that never lets us down! We've been digging the musical choices of Gilles Peterson since the late 80s – and over the years, he's continued to expose us to new music we never would have heard otherwise – first with his compilations and radio shows, and more recently with his excellent work on his own Brownswood label!
