First ChoiceDelusions (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Gold Mind/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the best records ever cut by this soulful Philly female trio! The album's one of the first on Salsoul's Gold Mind subsidiary – and it features sparkling club production by the Harris/Baker/Young team – a landmark force not only in Philly disco, but 70s female soul as well – as their backings for groups of this nature are always sensitive to the complexities of the vocals! The record's mostly uptempo – with plenty of soaring tracks that still retain the more soulful sound of the group's early work – and the songwriting's generally tight, a few notches above earlier albums on Warner – showing that their return to the indie fold was a very good move. Titles include the classic "Let No Man Put Asunder" – plus "Doctor Love", "Indian Giver", "Do Me Again", and a great version of Stevie Wonder's "Love Having You Around". CD features lots of bonus tracks – including "Doctor Love (single)", "Love Having You Around (single)", "Indian Giver (single)", "Doctor Love (12" Tom Moulton mix)", "Let No Man Put Asunder (12" Shep Pettibon mix)", and "Let No Man Put Asunder (12" Frankie Knuckles mix)".

✨✧ First ChoiceHold Your Horses (with bonus tracks) ... CD
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.

✨✧ Floyd CramerSuper Country Hits/Young & The Restless ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $16.99
A pair of piano instrumental albums from Nashville's legendary Floyd Cramer! First up is Super Country Hits – a set that has Floyd tippling the ivories through 70s instrumental updates of older country hits – done with a sweet RCA studio vibe, and that floating, suspended style of recording that always made Cramer's piano sound so great! Titles include "Is Anybody Goin To San Antoine", "Detroit City", "Battle Of New Orleans", "Lonely Street", "Sugarfoot Rag", and "It's A Sin". The Young & The Restless is an album that's perfect for the piano style of Floyd Cramer – a set that's maybe more 70s easy instrumental than some of his previous albums – but in a mighty nice way! Floyd's piano has this haunting, spacious quality on the title cut – a perfect choice for his talents – and other cuts have the pianist working on both acoustic and Fender Rhodes, on titles that include "Behind Close Doors", "Top Of The World", "Mercy Mercy Mercy", "Rockin On", "Theme From A Dream", and "The Young & The Restless".

✨✧ Dick Dale & His Del-TonesSurfer's Choice (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Deltone/Sundazed, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
The first LP from Dick Dale And His Del-Tones – about as influential of a genre guitar gem as you could ask for – the great Surfer's Choice from 1962! Hilariously, a question on the top of the back cover reads, "Why Is Dick Dale The Surfer's Choice?", and although we cannot speak for actual surfers, surf guitar fans need not be asked. Raw, rumbling, exciting surf rockers from the king – much of it recorded at Rendezvous Ballroom in Balboa Beach, where Dale's legend was made. Includes "Surf Beat", "Misirlou Twist", "Peppermint Man", "Surfing Drums", "Shake N Stomp", "Let's Go Trippin" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Dream SyndicateDays Of Wine & Roses (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, Early 80s. New Copy ... $10.99 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

Ben E KingDon't Play That Song ... CD
Atco (UK), 1962. New Copy ... $8.99
A stellar record from Ben E King – and one of a few early 60s gems that really have him leaving a longstanding mark on soul music! There's a balance here that's unbelievable – a quality that's emotive right from the start, yet also perfectly put together too – with Ben's tremendous vocals backed by some tight Atlantic backings – in a style that's virtually the blueprint for lots more uptown soul singers to come in the 60s. The song choice is impeccable too – numbers from Doc Pomus, Mort Shuman, and Phil Spector which perfectly straddle the lines of soul music at the time – tunes that include classics like "Here Comes The Night", "Don't Play That Song", "Young Boy Blues", and "Stand By Me" – plus lesser-known gems like "Brace Yourself", "I Promise Love", "Yes", "First Taste Of Love", and "Show Me The Way".

The set does a good job of pushing past obvious hits, and includes some tasty little groovers like "Travel On", "Somethin You Got", "Look A Here", "My Bucket's Got A Hole In It", "Hello, Cello", and the classic "Blues For Night Owls".

Alton McClain & DestinyIt Must Be Love ... LP
Polydor/Universal (Japan), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Sweet late 70s modern soul from Alton McClain & Destiny – a great little female vocal trio with a sound that ranges from lightly funky with jazzy flourishes, to soaringly soulful! The group kind of follow in a tradition started by Honeycone and First Choice, and improved upon by The Emotions – and like that latter group, the girls move from the easier disco tracks that you'd normally expect, into a range of soulful styles that all come off equally well with their vocal technique. Webster Lewis handled some of the nice string arrangements – and players include Wah Wah Watson on guitar and Lee Ritenour on keys. titles include "Crazy Love", "Sweet Temptation", "Taking My Love For Granted", "My Empty Room", "Push & Pull", and "The Power Of Love".

Sisters LoveGive Me Your Love ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
The first-ever full length collection of work by The Sisters Love – an ultra-hip female soul group who cut some incredibly funky singles, but never issued a full album – finally given their due in this amazing batch of singles from the late 60s and early 70s! The Sisters Love sound is a great blend of funky rhythms, hard soul vocals, and soaring harmonies on the chorus – in a way that's almost a cross between the work of Lyn Collins at People Records with the best sounds of Sweet Inspirations over at Atlantic – but even more righteous overall, thanks to production work by the likes of Willie Hutch, Gloria Jones, Gene Chandler, and Monk Higgins! The set brings together singles recorded for Motown and A&M – all recorded over a period of 6 years, but tremendously unified overall – with a badass soul sound that rivals the legendary album by The Jackson Sisters. Titles include "Give Me Your Love", "My Love Is Yours", "The Bigger You Love", "Blackbird", "Ring Once", "Mr Fix It", "You've Got To Make Your Choice", "You've Got My Mind", "Now Is The Time", "Forget It I Got It", "Ha Ha Ha", "I Know You Love Me", and "Try It You'll Like It".

StratavariousStratavarious ... LP
Roulette, 1977. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A great album of jazzy club tracks – put together by John Usry Jr, who'd done some work with other 70s club acts like Three Degrees, Love Committee, and First Choice. Most of the tracks on the record feature female backing vocals – in the style of work by those other groups – but the real standout aspect is a jazzy harp, played in a manner that makes us think of Dorothy Ashby going disco. The best cut on the album is the 8 minute "Nightfall", which has some great trumpet work by Guido Basso – and other nice moments include the mellow "Touching", and the cuts "I Got Your Love" and "Love Me", which both have some nice guitar. Recorded in Canada, and very typical of that baroque Canadian approach to disco. LP, Vinyl record album

THP OrchestraEarly Riser/Two Hot For Love – Disco Recharge ... CD
Harmless (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy 2 CDs ... $9.99
A smoking disco double-header from THP Orchestra – two excellent albums back to back, with loads of bonus tracks too! Early Riser has a groove that really has the group starting out strongly – a perfect early disco approach that's funky and instrumental, but which often echoes some other earlier instrumental eras too – partly in the choice of songs, partly in the way that familiar grooves are disco-fied for the 70s! There's more covers here than in later years, but all of them are done mighty well – with a strong use of funky guitars and keyboards that keep a nice edge on the rhythms. Titles include "Theme From SWAT", "More", "Dawn Patrol", "Early Riser", "Crazy Crazy", "Manha De Carnaval", and "Sugar Sugar". CD features 8 more bonus tracks added to the album – including "Theme From SWAT (orig 7" mix)", "Early Riser (orig 12" mix)", "Manha De Carnaval (7" edit)", "Fightin On The Side Of Love (12" mix)", "Fightin On The Side Of Love (inst 7" mix)", and "Fightin On The Side Of Love (inst 12" mix)". Two Hot For Love is a great little disco album – really a cut above its contemporaries, thanks to some great instrumentation overall! Side one features the extended "Two Hot For Love" title track – presented as a mini-suite of sorts with lead vocals from Barbara Fry, a singer who's really a lot more soulful than you'd expect. But even better are the keyboards by Michael Lewis – soaring out with similar spacey touches to his own AVI work, and bringing in some interesting interplay to the tune. Side two features some shorter tracks – including a great funky remake of "Manha De Carnival" with more great Lewis keyboards – plus "Crazy Crazy", "Dawn Patrol", and "Early Riser" – all longer versions than on the group's first album. CD features lots of bonus remixes of the title single "Two Hot For Love" – including an "RCA 12" mix", "7 inch b-side", "Pete Waterman 12" edit", and a few more single mixes. CD

Various90s House & Garage – Compiled By Joey Negro – Part 1 ... LP
Z Records (UK), 1990s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $31.99
The 90s was a huge decade for dance music, but it was also a time in which some of the best work often got overlooked next to the hits – especially the kind of cool underground tracks compiled here! Back in the day, Joey Negro was making lots of great music like this – so he's a perfect choice to put together a collection of this nature – which really focuses on the deepest, most soulful sounds of the 90s house scene – and not the more commercial work that was cluttering up the charts! Lots of the tracks here carry that underground vibe that had sprung up in New Jersey and New York after the initial wave of house from Chicago – almost a return to some of the more deeply soulful modes of the disco generation after the colder beats from the Midwest, but still with rhythms that have all the sharp focus of house at its best. Titles on this first volume include "Voices In My Mind (CJ Mackintosh rmx)" by Voices, "Living In Ecstasy (FK groove mix edit)" by Mood II Swing with Fonda Rae, "New York Style" by Mateo & Matos, "An Instrumental Need (club need)" by Ralphi Rosario, "Ladbroke Grove" by Kerri Chandler, and "Love Commandments (orig vocal edit)" by Gisele Jackson.

Mr Salsoul is right – because with all his years in the clubs, DJ Danny Krivit has done plenty to keep the legacy of Salsoul Records alive – as you'll hear in this killer 2CD set that offers up two different Salsoul mixes by Krivit! The first CD features Danny mixing up a variety of different remixes of Salsoul singles from the glory days of the New York club scene – and the second CD features another long mix, but made completely of new edits of tracks done by Krivit – those cool cutups that he really helped pioneer back in the day, as a way of focusing on the best elements of a groove! Titles include "My Love Is Free (DK edit)" by Double Exposure, "Love Thang (Tee Scott 12" mix)" by First Choice, "When I Come Home (12" mix)" by Aurra, "Handsome Man (DK edit)" by Sparkle, "Victorious (DK edit)" by Ripple, "We're Getting Stronger (DK edit)" by Loleatta Hollowa, "Here's To You (12" mix with acappella)" by Skyy, "IT's Good For The Soul (DK edit of Al Kent edit)" by The Salsoul Orchestra, "Thousand Finger Man (12" mix)" by Candido, and "Let No Man Put Asunder (DK edit)" by First Choice.

Universal (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $26.99
A sweet ride on the Disco Train – served up in a non-stop mix, built from a selection of classic cuts from the end of the 70s and start of the 80s – all of them some well-remembered gems from the dancefloor! Despite the "disco" in the title, the series also features some great tracks from the years beyond Studio 54 – including a few choice import groovers that played big on American dancefloors – the sort of shifting sounds that took over once the second wave of British invasion hit US clubs after the decline of disco! The result is a batch of tracks that's familiar, but presented in a nicely fresh way – and this first volume features a continuous mix 30 tracks that include "She's A Bad Mama Jama" by Carl Carlton, "Love's Dance" by Klique, "Funtime" by Peaches & Herb, "Bad Girls" by Donna Summer, "Don't You Want Me" by Human League, "Glad To Know You" by Chaz Jankel, "Look Of Love" by ABC, "Got To BE Enough" by Con Funk Shun, "It Must Be Love" by Alton McClain & Destiny, "Let It Whip" by Dazz Band, "Give It To Me Baby" by Rick James, "I'm So Hot" by Denise LaSalle, "The Breaks" by Kurtis Blow, and "Saturday Saturday Night" by Zoom.

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.

VariousSources – The DJ International Records Anthology – Compiled By Bill Brewster ... CD
Harmless (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99
A set that's very near and dear to our hearts – given that the DJ International label was a huge force here on the Chicago scene during the 80s! The label was second only to Trax Records as a proving ground for so many new ideas in house music – a crucial indie who helped give many artists their start, and managed to get their music to much wider audiences around the globe! While Trax might have been first by a few beats, DJ international stepped forward with a much more professional approach – really focusing on some key stars in the growing house scene, and even working in album formats as well as the sort of singles that seemed to crop up every week during the 80s. This 3CD package is very well done – selected and annotated by dancefloor scholar Bill Brewster – with 35 cuts that include "Move" by Farm Boy, "Like This" by Chip E, "Shadows Of Your Love (original fierce club)" by JM Silk, "The It (Hardy club mix)" by Donnie, "Turn Up The Bass" by Tyree with Kool Rock Steady, "Check Out The Hook (dangerous DJ club)" by 2 Young Brothers, "Communicate (AT&T club)" by Full House, "Let's Go Don't U Want Some More" by Fast Eddie, "Don't Wanna Go (Mike Dunn voc club)" by Sterling Void, "Work On Me (99th Street piano club)" by Frankie Hollywood Rodriguez, "Acid Thunder (fast thunder club)" by Fast Eddie, "Freedom (Factory club)" by the Children, "House Music Is My Life (deep house club rmx)" by Tyree, "The Promised Land" by Joe Smooth, "It's U" by Farley Jackmaster Funk & Ricky Dillard, "Choice Of A New Generation (deep underground club)" by Rocky Jones, and "Only The Strong Survive" by Frankie Knuckles.

Roxbury, 1976. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
An obscure set – but a tasty bit of 70s female soul, with a sound that's a bit like First Choice on the best cuts! Kenny Nolan wrote and produced the album, and handled most of the arrangements with Gene Page – in a style that's got a definite Philly Groove feel to it, right down to instrumentation that includes electric sitar and vibes. Highlights include Linda's answer to Jim Gilstrap, a sweet track called "Take Your Mama For A Ride", plus the great "Dial L for the Love Squad", a sort of companion to "Armed & Extremely Dangerous", with a similar girl cop theme feel! Other tracks include "Cherry Pie Guy", "Lost & Found", and "High Wire". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue MitchellCup Bearers ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1962. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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

Ennio MorriconeIl Pentito/Rappresaglia ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1973/1985. New Copy 2 CDs ... $29.99
Two Ennio Morricone scores in a single package! First up is Il Pentito – a later score from Ennio Morricone – but an incredibly beautiful one too – penned for a mid 80s mafia film set in Sicily, but featuring some of his sweetest, most sensitive work of the time! There's a very bittersweet feel to most of the music here – a quality that's almost romantic at times, but touched with really blue notes too – as the tunes spin out in slow, thoughtful progressions that echo the darker choices and themes of the film. There's a few more upbeat tracks, and a few darker, atonal numbers – but overall most of the score is steeped in melancholy – with gentle strings and woodwinds that have plenty of trademark Morricone touches! Titles include "Il Pentito", "Messaggio", "Retata", "Momento Decisivo", "Sicilia", "Durante L'Omelia", "Confusi Ricordi", "Sicilia Dei Ricordi Lontani", and "Evento Finale". Rappresaglia is a war drama, with Morricone's score kicked off with a percussion heavy march, but the sound goes on feature many of the elements of creeping tension, and haunting bits of minimal tones and bits of atmosphere of his work in the horror genre – those spare string tones and thumping piano notes the give you goosebumps!

The song choices are wonderful – some of the most focused, expressive cuts from the first few Cocteau years – magical moments that have the wordless vocals of Liz Frazier carving out these really beautiful melodies – while lush keyboards and splashy rhythms fill in the background with that unique 4AD style of production. There's still never been anything like the group at this point over all the years that have past – and the album's filled with gems that include "Wax & Wane", "Pearly Dewdrop Drops", "From The Flagstones", "Lorelei", "Aikea Guinea", "Pepper Tree", and "Musette & Drums".

✨✧ 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
