Philly Groove, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best early tunes by this sweet Philly group – a great entry into the "cop/love" genre, which flourished briefly in the early 70s – and a standout track that still grooves mighty hard! And why not – since the great Norman Harris wrote and produced? 7-inch, Vinyl record

Salsoul/Suss'd (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massive collection of work by one of the greatest female acts to come out of Philly in the 70s – a seminal all-girl trio whose work had a huge influence on disco and club into the 80s! First Choice got their start doing more pop-oriented work for the Philly Groove label – but by the end of the 70s, they'd hooked up with Salsoul, who set the girls in a sound that was perfect for their growing understanding of the dancefloor – a soaring mode that was very much in the best Salsoul take on Philly, and which provided a perfect platform for some of the deepest vocals the trio ever set to record! This 2CD set features all 3 of the group's albums for Salsoul – Delusions, Hold Your Horses, and Breakaway – plus additional bonus tracks from singles and remixes, making for a whopping 28 track set that serves up some of the most seminal female club work of the 70s. Titles include album mixes of "Double Cross", "Doctor Love", "Indian Giver", "Love Having You Around", "Let No Man Put Asunder", "Love Thang", "Do Me Again", "Jimmy D", "Good Morning Midnight", "Hold Your Horses", "I'm The One", "Breakaway", and "Pressure Point" – plus singles "Let No Man Put Asunder (Frankie Knuckles 12" mix)", "Love Thang (Tee Scott 12" mix)", "Let No Man Put Asunder (Shep Pettibone 12" mix)", "Double Cross (Danny Tenaglia 12" remix)", and "Doctor Love (Tom Moulton unreleased 12" mix)".

Gold Mind/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... 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 ... $8.99
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 ... $8.99
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

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".

Paul HornVisions ... CD
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1974. Used ... $7.99
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".

Thollem McDonas/William Parker/Nels ClineGowanus Session ... CD
Porter, 2012. Used ... $9.99
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".

Horace ParlanHappy Frame Of Mind (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1963. Used ... $22.99
Wicked work by pianist Horace Parlan – and one of his most stunning Blue Note sessions ever! The album was first recorded in 1963, but then kept on the shelf for years – seeing only brief release as part of a Booker Ervin package in the late 70s, and finally coming out with the proper cover and lineup at some point in the 80s! Why Blue Note waited so long is a mystery, because the album's a gem throughout – almost more important, and more starkly modern than any of Parlan's other work for the label. Booker Ervin leads the frontline on tenor, alongside Johnny Coles on trumpet, Grant Green on guitar, and the rhythm section of Butch Warren and Billy Higgins. Parlan's choice of material is fantastic – with a number of Africanist tracks that feature unique rhythmic patterns that really push the soloists! Titles include "A Tune For Richard", "Dexi", "Home Is Africa", "Kucheza Blues", and "Back From The Gig". CD

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

Silver ConventionSave Me (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99
A huge breakout moment for disco in the 70s – the first album from Silver Convention, a very early example of the European power on the club scene! The group's the brainchild of arranger Sylvester Levay and producer Michael Kunze – who come up with some great German disco rhythms for the record, mixed with soaring female trio vocals, by a group that includes two German gals and American soul singer Roberta Kelly! The vocal approach is similar to that 70s Philly group mode – popularized by First Choice, Three Degrees, and others – and pumped it up with the Munich sound of throbbing bass and heavy beats, which was arguably one of the first steps towards house music in the 80s. Titles include the huge hit "Fly Robin Fly", plus "Save Me", "I Like It", "Chains Of Love", "Tiger Baby", "Always Another Girl", and "Heart Of Stone". CD features bonus tracks – "Fly Robin Fly (12" disco version)" and "Tiger Baby (12" disco version)". 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

Salsoul/Ultra, Late 70s/2013. New Copy Gatefold ... $13.99 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.

Classic cuts from the great Salsoul Records, all remixed by the legendary Larry Levan – guru of the Paradise Garage scene, and a key bridge in the shift from disco to house in the 80s! Levan's mixes seem to have a bit more bottom than the originals – and a nice sense of space that really highlights all the best elements in the music. This massive 2CD package features the core 5 tracks from the original album, plus 14 more gems all remixed by Levan – a batch of titles that includes "I Got My Mind Made Up" by Instant Funk, "Double Cross" by First Choice, "First Time Around" by Skyy, "The Greatest Performance Of My Life" by Loleatta Holloway, "Handsome Man" by Sparkle, "How High" by Salsoul Orchestra, "It's Just Begun" by Jimmy Castor, "I Know You Will (rmx)" by Logg, "When I Come Home" by Aurra, "Skyyzoo" by Skyy, "Bodyshine (unreleased version)" by Instant Funk, "Summertime Lovin" by Steve Arrington, "Make It Last Forever (unreleased version)" by Inner Life, "By The Way You Dance (unreleased version)" by Bunny Sigler, and "Slap Slap Lickedy Slap" by Instant Funk.

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.

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.

Ennio MorriconeLe Foto Proibite Di Una Signora Per Bene/Il Ritorno Del Ringo ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1965/1970. New Copy 2CD ... $34.99
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

Killer Mike's masterful RAP Music – produced in full by El-P and the reviews ring true – this is no doubt one of the best hip hop albums of '12! Heavily-thumping, digital funk production by El-P and sharply-honed, fiercely-delivered rhymes by Mike. It's not the first time that Killer Mike has worked incredibly well with seemingly left field choices when it comes to the production, but the cohesion factor here, with El-P handling the entire record – that might be what pushes this one to the next level. This is no mere indie hype, it's destined for classic status. Includes "Big Beast" with Bun B, TI and Trouble, "Untitled" feat Scar, "Go!", "Southern Fried", "Jo Jo's Chillin", "Don't Die", "Reagan", "Butane (Champions Anthem)" feat El-P, "RAP Music" and "Willie Burke Sherwood". Limited vinyl version comes with the bonus instrumentals LP! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Kidd Jordan/Peter Kowald/Alvin FielderTrio & Duo In New Orleans ... CD
No Business (Lithuania), 2013. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful showcase for the soulful tenor talents of Kidd Jordan – a player with a style that takes us back to some of the richest, most expressive musicians of the loft jazz scene of the 70s! Jordan's got a way of spinning out a long, personal statement on his horn – one that's powerful and bold, and never resorts to cliche or any easy tricks – often just built strongly out of these very individualistic choices that almost have a poetic quality – although certainly of the proud and righteous mode! The first half of the set features a live performance with some wonderful bass work from Peter Kowald – a player whose low tones resonate in this very unusual way, and bring further depth to the record. Alvin Fielder plays both drums and percussion – and sparks off some strong energy at some points – even more so on the second half of the package, which just features duo tracks between Fielder and Jordan recorded in the studio. Live trio titles include six trio passages and both a solo drum and bass number – and duo titles include "Nameless Sound Duo", "Tempest Nola 2005", "Liftoff", and "Duo Flight". CD
