First ChoiceArmed & Extremely Dangerous/Gonna Keep On Lovin' Him ... 7-inch
Philly Groove, 1973. Very Good+ ... $4.99
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

✨✧ First ChoiceStars Of Salsoul – For Listening, For Dancing, For Turning On A Party ... LP
Salsoul (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A heady collection of work from the famous Philly soul trio First Choice – a group who'd already been around for years before these recordings, but who really hit their stride with the style of Salsoul Records! The label's mix of soul and club worked perfectly for the girls – really setting their vocals free – and their style seemed especially at home with the label's strong use of remixers, which is really featured here! The package brings together all rare 12" mixes of some classics by First Choice for the label – and titles include "Double Cross (Shep Pettibone 12" mix)", "Love Thang (Tee Scott rmx)", "Breakaway (Tee Scott 12" mix)", "Let No Man Put Asunder (Shep Pettibone 12" mix)", "Doctor Love (Tom Moulton 12" mix)", "I Can Show You (Tee Scott 12" mix)", "Let No Man Put Asunder (Frankie Knuckles rmx)", and "Double Cross (Larry Levan 12" mix)".

People's ChoiceWe Got The Rhythm ... CD
Philadelphia International/Sony (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
People's Choice have the rhythm – as they did right from the very start, when they were first cutting records as a late 60s funk combo in Philly! The style here is more late 70s club, handled with perfection by the team of Gamble & Huff – but the PC approach is still a lot more funk than some of their contemporaries – with lots of sharp, live rhythms at the bottom of the grooves – and plenty of sweet keyboards from leader Frankie Brunson! Brunson sings a bit too, but the group seem to balance out the sound with lots of instrumental moments – and titles include "Here We Go Again", "Jam Jam Jam", "We Got The Rhythm", "Cold Blooded & Downright Funky", and "Opus De Funk".

✨✧ People's ChoiceAny Way You Wanna – The People's Choice Anthology 1971 to 1981 ... CD
Big Break (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Funky Philly soul at its finest! This is the first-ever People's Choice compilation we've seen – all the more impressive for pulling together essential recordings made for the Philadelphia International, Casablanca, TSOP, West End and Phil-LA Of Soul labels – recordings that cover an incredible decade-long run! People's Choice burst out of the gate in the early 70s with a wave of funky, electric piano flavored singles – soon catching the attention of Gamble & Huff, which helped open doors both commercially and creatively in the years that followed. We'd be hard pressed to pick a finer batch of tracks from early 70s to early 80s than you'll find here – including standout early singles and album tracks, rarer B-sides and single mixes – when considered all together really showing the group in all its multi-faceted glory! 33 tracks on 2CDs: "Do It Anyway You Wanna", "I Likes To Do It", "Cold Blooded & Down-Right-Funky", "Nursery Rhymes", "My Feet Won't Move, But My Shoes Did The Boogie", "Turn Me Loose", "Grunt", "Love Shop", "Asking For Trouble", "Don't Send Me Away", "A Mellow Mood", "You Ought TO Be Dancing", "If You Gonna Do It (Put Your Mind To It)" (Parts 1 & 2), "Boogie Down USA", "Soft And Tender", "A Great Truth", Tom Moulton mixes of "Opus-De-Funk" & "Do It Any Way You Wanna" and "Jam Jam Jam (All Night Long)" and more!

✨✧ VariousMen In The Glass Booth – Groundbreaking Re-edits & Remixes By The Disco Era's Most Influential DJs (3CD set) ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
An incredible collection – and one that fills in a crucially under-documented side of the New York dancefloor generation – the wealth of special mixes and edits that were made for that city's important DJs for their own use in clubs! The package sorts through a mountain of never-issued acetates, and goes way past conventional disco or rare club collections – to showcase the special mixing talents these DJs brought to their re-presentation of the material – which was usually done on tape, then pressed onto acetate discs for their own private use! Those rare treasures are brought forth here – in a beautiful package that's also overflowing with fantastic notes that finally give this lost history its due – all handled by Al Kent – who's a hell of a mixer himself, as well as an underground club historian. 3CD set is overflowing with gems – and titles include "I Just Wanna Say I Love You (John Luongo rmx)" by Leon Collins, "What About Love (Tony Gioe rmx)" by Marboo, "Ten Percent (Walter Gibbons Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Double Exposure, "Inside America (Rick Gianatos disco queen acetate edit)" by Juggy Murray Jones, "Dancing Free (John Luongo rmx)" by Hot Ice, "Black Water Gold (Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by The Sunshine Band, "Magic Bird Of Fire (Francois Kevorkian Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "It's Good For The Soul (Jay Negron Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "My Love Is Free (Walter Gibbons disco madness rmx)" by Double Exposure, "Reaching Out For Happiness (Jonathan Fearing rmx)" by Fay Hauser, "Let Me Be Your Fantasy (Tom Savarese rmx)" by Love Symphony Orchestra, "The Beat Goes On & On (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Ripple, "I Wanna Be Near You (John Morales Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Ruby Andrews, "I've Been Looking For Somebody (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, "The Disco Scene (Rick Gianatos rmx)" by Lake Shore Drive, "Bumpsie's Whipping Cream (Tom Savarese rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, "Janice (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Skip Mahoney, "My Number's Up (Tee Scott rmx)" by The Salsoul Orchestra, "The Love Bug Done Bit Me Again (David Todd rmx)" by Skyliners, "LA Sunshine (Robert Ouimet rmx)" by Aura, "Love Has Come My Way (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Tony Valor Sound Orchestra, "Handsome Ma (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Sparkle Tuhran & Friends, "Love Thang (Tee Scott rmx)" by First Choice, "Burn Me Up (Jellybean Benitez edit)" by Kay Gees, "Love Is The Message (Tee Scott rmx)" by Brooklyn Express, "Changes (Jellybean Benitez rmx)" by Chain Reaction, "J'Ouvert (Frank Sestito rmx)" by John Gibbs & The Jam Band, "By The Way You Dance (Bobby DJ Guttadaro rmx)" by Bunny Sigler, "It's Good For The Soul (Walter Gibbons disco madness version)" by Salsoul Orchestra, and "It's A Better Than Good Time (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by Gladys Knight & The Pips.

✨✧ VariousSalsoul Presents – Disco Divas & Soulful Sista Flavas ... CD
Suss'd/Salsoul (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A motherlode of female soul – from one of the greatest club labels of all time! Salsoul Records was a key force in transforming the sound of the female singer in the mid 70s – mixing together older soul styles with a warm and joyous groove that pushed the vocals onto the dancefloor, and exposed the artists to a much wider crossover audience. And while disco soul often gets a bad rap as being "sellout", one listen to this set will quickly dispel any of those thoughts – as Salsoul always considered the singer to be the strongest element of the music, and never buried the vocals, or pushed them off to the side, as in styles used by other disco labels at the time. Titles include "More" by Carole Williams, "That's What You Said" by Loleatta Holloway, "Can't Take It With You" by First Choice, "Let's Go Another Round (orig 12" mix)" by Inner Life with Jocelyn Brown, "Everytime I See Him" by Metropolis with The Sweethearts, "When Life Was Just A Game" by Claudja Barry, "You & I Together (orig 12" mix)" by Brenda Gooch, "Let Me Down Easy" by First Choice, "If You're Gonna Love Me" by Inner Life, "We're Getting Stronger" by Loleatta Holloway, and "My Time Of Need" by Carol Williams. CD also features great notes on each track! CD

Miles Davis with John Coltrane & Sonny StittIn Stockholm 1960 Complete (4CD set) ... CD
Dragon (Sweden), 1960. New Copy 4CD ... $38.99 51.98
The complete recordings of a legendary live cycle of shows in Stockholm from 1960 – material that was previously issued on two different 2LP sets during the album era, now brought together here with bonus tracks too! The first third of the set features incredible work from the team of Miles Davis and John Coltrane – working together in space that's very open, and far more exploratory than their studio work of the late 50s – maybe at a level that really shows the impact that Coltrane's growth was having on the solo approach of Davis! The key rhythm trio keeps things swinging – Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – which almost seems to allow the horn players even more freedom. The second two thirds of the set are equally striking, but in a very different way – as they feature the great Sonny Stitt, blowing both alto and tenor with Miles' group – a choice that's maybe a bit surprising, but equally wonderful too – a Stitt brings the sound maybe back to a bop core, but also seems to really get a chance to show off some of those modern currents that he had to soft-pedal on his albums for Roost. Titles with Coltrane include "So What", "On Green Dolphin Street", "All Blues/Theme", "Walkin/Theme", and "Fran Dance" – and titles with Stitt include "Autumn Leaves/Theme", "Walkin", "All Of You", "June Night", "Stardust", "Lover Man", "If I Were A Bell", "No Blues/Theme", "Softly As In A Mornin Sunrise", and "So What".

Gloria GaynorNever Can Say Goodbye ... LP
MGM, 1975. Very Good+ ... $3.99
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".

Roland HannaSir Elf ... CD
Choice (UK), 1973. Used ... $6.99
The first solo set from Roland Hanna – even though he had a long and varied career in dating back to the 50s – and a gem of a timeless solo piano jazz recorded from the early 70s. It's probably the best record to his name, with warmth to spare, a few recorded in a small recital hall at Nola Studios, and couple in the intimate confines of a home living room. Wonderful! Titles include "Yours Is My Heart Alone", "Night Of My Lights", "There Is No Greater Love" "Walkin", "This Is All I Ask", "If You Could See Me Now" and more, plus a solid pair of originals, Back Home In Indiana" and "Morning".

HiroshimaEast/Providence ... CD
Epic/BGO (UK), 1989/1992. New Copy 2CD ... $8.99
A pair of later albums from one of the most unique fusion groups of their generation! First up is East, a record that really has Hiroshima embracing both their name and their previous approach to tight jazzy fusion – a set that's very electric, but also uses plenty of koto, taiko, and shamisen to give the music a strong Japanese flavor! The strongest lead comes from Dan Kuramoto, whose keyboard work and reed lines get plenty of space – but the set's also a definite group effort, with a warm sense of sympathy between the players – something you'd definitely need to blend acoustic and electric elements in this way! Machun sings lovely lead vocals on a few tracks – and titles include "East", "Tabo", "Streetcorner Paradise", "Daydreamer", "Living In America", and "Thousand Cranes". Providence showcases the continuing evolution of the Hiroshima sound – a set that still features the group's blend of electric fusion and more traditional Japanese elements – but which also marks a bit of a shift in the style of electric instruments at the time! In other words, the vibe here is more early 90s fusion than the sound of their earlier records – a shift in the choice of keyboards used by leader Dan Kuramoto, which are mixed alongside koto, shamisen, taiko, and percussion. Jeanette Clinger sings lead vocals in a few spots – and titles include "Turning Point", "Island World", "Time On The Nile", "With This Heart", "Kazen", "Providence", "One Of Us", and "Ribbon In The Sky".

✨✧ Jazzmeia HornSocial Call ... CD
Prestige, 2017. New Copy ... $9.99 15.99
The album's titled after a famous song by Betty Carter, and the sound of the set might well match her legacy too – as Jazzmeia Horn is clearly a singer we'll be hearing plenty from in years to come! Horn's got an incredible range – the first female jazz singer we've heard in years to really open up in the instrument-inspired style of the famous vocalists of years back – but she's also an artist who's not just copping old school jazz modes, as the presentation and choice of material is very strongly her own, and really blows us away! For everyone who's dug the music of top-shelf jazz singers like Betty Carter, Shirley Horn, and Dee Dee Bridgewater – Jazzmeia Horn may well be the next step forward. Players on the album include Victor Gould on piano, Ben Williams on bass, and Jerome Jennings on drums – and the set also features contributions from Josh Evans on trumpet, Frank Lacy on trombone, and Stacy Dillard on tenor. Titles include "Tight", "Up Above My Head", "Social Call", "People Make The World Go Round", "The Peacocks", "I Remember You", and "Afro Blue/Eye See You/Wade In The Water". CD

✨✧ Ben E KingDon't Play That Song ... CD
Atlantic/Warner (Japan), 1962. Used ... $9.99
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".

Edmony KraterAn Ka Sonje ... LP
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2018. New Copy ... $22.99
The first album in many years from Edmondy Krater – an overlooked musical genius from the scene in Guadeloupe – and one who maybe sounds better here than ever before! Krater's always had an ear for blending jazz with some of the more recent currents of the island – but that concept is maybe expressed here most perfectly in the handling of his music by Heavenly Sweetness – a label who've been a recent champion of his classic records, and a great choice for bringing him back into the studio. Krater vocalizes, and plays trumpet, flugelhorn, djembe, and other percussion – with a tight quintet of bass, drums, and additional percussion – plus some great Fender Rhodes – and titles include "A Pa Jodi", "Mi Yo Rive", "Ti Jan Ka", "Lage", "An Ka Sonje", "Nou Kontan", and "Jouwe Tanbou".

✨✧ MonksBlack Monk Time (180 gram pressing with bonus tracks) ... LP
Polydor/Light In The Attic, 1966. Used 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
The one astounding studio album of proto punk/abrasive psych genius from the Monks – a true masterpiece – and a record that's been ripped off by myriad more famous groups in both the mainstream and underground rock landscape of the past 40 years! The group's status as discharged G.I.'s informs some of spewed vitriol, but beyond that there's little connection to any trends or scenes – the Monks are true originals in a world of imitators – and that adds a layer of excitement to an already mind blowing listen. The album's wild organ washes, primitive drums and guitar, and harsh, bizarre vocal rants prefigured everything from the Stooges, to Rocket From The Tombs, to the more predictable punk stuff that arrived 18 years later – yet it still grooves. Outrageous and incredible! "Monk Time", "Shut Up", "Boys Are Boys And Girls Are Choice", "Higgle-Dy-Piggle-Dy", "I Hate You", "We Do Wie Du", "Drunken Maria", "Blast Off!", "That's My Girl", "Cuckoo", "Love Can Tame The Wild", "He Went Down To The Sea" and more – the first 12 tracks are the original LP release – followed by later singles and a live track. Light In The Attic's reissue has better sound than we've ever heard for this material, and a great booklet of notes and photos. LP, Vinyl record album

New CensationNew Censation ... CD
Pride/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $12.99
The only full album we've ever seen from this obscure 70s soul group – an ensemble who work here with plenty of help on production, arrangements, and songwriting from the great Van McCoy! Van's still a bit shy of his bigger disco fame here – and instead, he showcases that groundbreaking style that helped lots of east coast groups really hit a new groove in the years before Studio 54 – a mode that uses the fuller production styles that Van first worked up in the late 60s, but which also sets things to a more compressed rhythmic style that's pretty darn great! Lots of the work here recalls the style of groups over at RCA – like Choice Four or Main Ingredient – but these guys have a mixed male/female vocal style, which makes for a unique difference too. Tracks include "Let's Get Back Together", "I Was Made For You", "I'm So Glad", "Come Down To Earth", and "Everybody's Got A Story". CD

✨✧ Buck OwensComplete Capitol Singles – 1957 to 1966 ... CD
Capitol/Omnivore, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99 26.98
Buck Owens ruled country music in the 60s – especially on the west coast – and these seminal singles for Capitol Records are a great demonstration of his talent at its height! Buck was a hell of a talent right from the start – sharp, soulful, and graced with a good sense of wit and strong intelligence – all of which ably guided both his performance and choice of material – which is especially perfect when it comes to his 45s! And while most of Owens' albums from this time have been reissued on CD, this is the first set to really look at the special world of his singles – which includes a lot of numbers that never made the full-length sets. The package features a whopping 56 tracks on 2CDs, complete with a and b-sides of all the singles – including a few duets with Rose Maddox. Titles include "I Know What It Means", "Over & Over Again", "Sweethearts In Heaven", "Cryin Time", "Waitin In Your Welfare Line", "Heart Of Glass", "No More Me & You", "The Way That I Love You", "House Down The Block", "King OF Fools", "I Can't Stop My Lovin You", "Second Fiddle", "Walk The Floor", "We're The Talk Of The Town", "My Heart Skips A Beat", "Together Again", "Don't Let Her Know", "No One But You", "Til These Dreams Come True", "High As The Mountains", and "Loose Talk".

Sire/Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99
The full recorded work of The Rezillos – one of those punk-era bands who weren't really punk, but who'd drunk a lot of the same sort of energy too – served up here in a package that includes two full albums, plus bonus tracks too! First up is Can't Stand The Rezillos – a record with guitars fast and hard enough to almost be late 70s punk rock, but which often comes off with a more playful, whimsical new wave sort of approach! Tracks are short and hook-heavy – produced by Bob Clearmountain with that razor-edged quality he brought to his best work of the time – and the trading off of lead vocals between Fay Fife and Eugene Reynolds makes the record hang nicely in a space between Blondie and The Ramones! Titles include "Flying Saucer Attach", "No", "Top Of The Pops", "2000 AD", "It Gets Me", "Glad All Over", and "Cold Wars". Next is Mission Accomplished – a fierce little live set from The Rezillos – one that comes as quite a surprise, since the group had only issued one studio set before – but a great choice overall, as the live setting really seems to set them on fire! Things here are harder, faster, and sharper than on their debut – with more punk speed and energy in the guitars, even if the songs themselves are more in a power pop mode – as tuneful as they are quick-moving! The concert was actually the group's last – recorded at a time when they'd announced a breakup – and that maybe gives the whole thing an urgency that was missing before, and which really makes us wish they'd kept recording. Titles include "Top Of The Pops"," Mystery Action", "Somebody's Gonna Get Their Head Kicked In Tonite", "Thunderbirds Are Go", "No", "Teenbeat", "Ballroom Blitz", "Destination Venus", and "Culture Shock". CD features lots of bonus tracks from singles – including "Destination Venus", "20000 Rezillos Under The Sea", "I Wanna Be Your Man", "Flying Saucer Attack (7" version)", and "Good Sculptures (7" version)" – plus "Flying Saucer Attack (live)", "Cold Wars (live)", and "Twist & Shout (live)".

The album's got a nice mixture of Philly groove and tighter crossover arrangements from the likes of Norman Harris, Bobby Martin, Lenny Pakula, and Richard Rome – all top-shelf Philly soul talents who really help move the album past the territory of the girl group soul of the trio's earlier work! Titles include the hit "When Will I See You Again", plus the long-running classic "Dirty Ol' Man", and the cuts "Can't You See What You're Doing To Me", "I Didn't Know", "I Like Being A Woman", and "Year Of Decision".

100 disco and dance tracks, all in a mighty nice package – and a set that's maybe got as much funky soul and upbeat grooves as it does more mainstream work from the clubs! The package goes past the obvious late 70s disco years – and begins with some earlier soul from the 70s, then even moves into some big 80s dancefloor tracks as well – the kind of delightful pop numbers that seem to be getting a lot more play from the younger generation who didn't live through the music the first time around! Titles include "I Just Can't Say Goodbye" by Philly Devotions, "The Bump" by The Commodores, "Summer Place 76" by Percy Faith, "Shining Star" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Love's Theme" by Love Unlimited Orchestra, "Lady Marmalade" by Labelle, "Dazz" by Brick, "Sky High" by Jigsaw, "Yes Sir I Can Boogie" by Baccara, "Boogie Nights" by GQ, "This Is It" by Melba Moore, "Do It Any Way You Wanna" by People's Choice, "Rockin Soul" by Hues Corporation, "Disco Inferno" by Trammps, "The Boss" by Diana Ross, "Super Freak" by Rick James, "Lovely One" by The Jacksons, "Paradise" by Change, "Got To Be Real" by Cheryl Lynn, "Best Of My Love" by The Emotions, "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" by Boys Town Gang, "Le Freak" by Chic, "I'm In The Mood For Dancing" by The Nolas, "Hello Mr Monkey" by Arabesque, "DJ In My Life" by Annie, "I Like Chopin" by Gazebo, "Wanted" by The Dooleys, "I Was Made For Lovin You" by Kiss, "Dschingis Khan" by Genghis Khan, "Breakout" by Swing Out Sister, "Let's Hear It For The Boy" by Deniece Williams, "Living In America" by James Brown, "Digging Your Scene" by The Blow Monkeys, "Conga" by Miami Sound Machine, "Hold Me Now" by Thompson Twins, "Don't You Want Me" by Human League, "Take On Me" by A-Ha, "Maneater" by Hall & Oates, "Respectable" by Mel & Kim, "Toy Toy" by Sinitta, "Two Of Hearts" by Stacey Q, "Venus" by Bananarama, "Eat You Up" by Angie Gold, "You Spin Me Round" by Dead Or Alive, "Point Of No Return" by Expose, "People Hold On" by Lisa Stansfield, "Give Me UP" by Michael Fortunati, and "Cha Cha Cha" by Finzy Kontini.

It's pretty darn easy to dig disco here – especially when the 2CD collection not only features a wonderful choice of selections, but also when those cuts are mixed together by DJ Nori and Muro The Beats! Each Japanese DJ gets a disc to themselves – and the shift in styles between them is great – with Muro maybe taking a heavier hand to his play with the grooves, and Nori creating a smoother sense of transition – all from rare cuts from the catalogs of Universal and Fantasy Records! Most of the work is late 70s, but there's also a few nice surprises from later years too – and titles include "Running Away" by Roy Ayers, "Happy Music" by The Blackbyrds, "I Love You More" by Rene & Angela, "Life Is Something Special" by Peech Boys, "The Sound Of Music" by Dayton, "I Need Your Lovin (M+M all night long mix)" by Teena Marie, "How To Groove" by Impact Of Brass, "Smoke" by Tribe, "Let's Go All The Way" by Brenda & The Tabulations, "Don't Fall In Love" by Alma Faye, "Brighter Days" by Vernon Burch, "Miracle Love" by Starpoint, "Finally (choice mix)" by CeCe Peniston, "The Whistle Song (EK mix fade)" by Frankie Knuckles, "I Wanna Rock You" by Giorgio Moroder, "Joyous" by Pleasure, "My Destiny" by Alton McClain & Destiny, "Circles (Joey Negro ext disco)" by Atlantic Starr, "Me & The Gang" by Bohannon, "Happy Feet" by Al Hudson & The Partners, "My First Mistake" by The Chi-Lites. and "You Got Me Runnin (M+M mix)" by Lenny Williams.

Salsoul/Groove Line Records (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
A legendary collection of cuts from Salsoul Records – not just big classics from the label, but special Walter Gibbon mixes that are even more revolutionary than the original tunes! Gibbons has a really wonderful way with a cut – an expansive touch that really opens things up, and makes just about every number here kind of a mini-symphony in clubby soul! The core arrangements and orchestrations of the Salsoul cuts are already wonderful – handled by Vince Montana and other top studio talents – but Gibbons makes those core parts into something even more amazing with his mixes here – still allowing you to love the hooks and grooves, but also taking everything to an even more sophisticated level. Titles include "My Love Is Free" and "Ten Percent" by Double Exposure, "It's Good For The Soul" and "Magic Bird Of Fire" by Salsoul Orchestra, "Let No Man Put Asunder" by First Choice, and "Catch Me On The Rebound" by Loleatta Holloway. This special set expands the original album with five more long bonus tracks, all mixed by Gibbons – "Block Party (Walter Gibbons 12" mix)" by Anthony White, "As Long As You Love Me (Walter Gibbons 12" mix)" by True Example, "Just As Long As I Got You (Walter Gibbons 12" mix)" by Love Committee, "Hit & Run (Walter Gibbons jungle mix)" by Loleatta Holloway, and "Ten Percent (Walter Gibbons 12" mix)".

VariousGolden Torch Vol 2 ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
A second helping of sounds that broke big at England's Golden Torch – one of the most important clubs for the second wave of Northern Soul at the end of the 60s – and the kind of music that shows the transforming tastes of listeners at the time! The work here isn't just in a slavish Motown mode – and instead soars out with a range of great upbeat elements – including some strong inspiration from the Philly scene as it was really coming into its own. Titles include "Stick By Me Baby" by The Salvadors, "I Still Love You" by The Superlatives, "Out On The Floor" by Dobie Gray, "Never Love A Robin" by Barbara & Brenda, "Your Love Is Just A False Alarm" by Tari Stevens, "Gotta Have Your Love" by The Sapphires, "Angel Baby" by George Carrow, "Ain't Nothing But A House Party" by The Show Stoppers, "Hold On To My Baby" by The Cavaliers, "Exus Trek" by Luther Ingram Orchestra, "One In A Million" by Maxine Brown, and "This Is The House Where Love Died" by First Choice.

BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 5LP ... $48.99 64.99
An incredible collection – and one that fills in a crucially under-documented side of the New York dancefloor generation – the wealth of special mixes and edits that were made for that city's important DJs for their own use in clubs! The package sorts through a mountain of never-issued acetates, and goes way past conventional disco or rare club collections – to showcase the special mixing talents these DJs brought to their re-presentation of the material – which was usually done on tape, then pressed onto acetate discs for their own private use! Those rare treasures are brought forth here – in a beautiful package that's also overflowing with fantastic notes that finally give this lost history its due – all handled by Al Kent – who's a hell of a mixer himself, as well as an underground club historian. Vinyl part 2 features five full records – all with lots of space for the tracks to stretch out – and titles include "My Number's Up (Tee Scott rmx)" by The Salsoul Orchestra, "The Love Bug Done Bit Me Again (David Todd rmx)" by Skyliners, "LA Sunshine (Robert Ouimet rmx)" by Aura, "Love Has Come My Way (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Tony Valor Sound Orchestra, "Handsome Ma (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Sparkle Tuhran & Friends, "Love Thang (Tee Scott rmx)" by First Choice, "Burn Me Up (Jellybean Benitez edit)" by Kay Gees, "Love Is The Message (Tee Scott rmx)" by Brooklyn Express, "Changes (Jellybean Benitez rmx)" by Chain Reaction, "J'Ouvert (Frank Sestito rmx)" by John Gibbs & The Jam Band, "By The Way You Dance (Bobby DJ Guttadaro rmx)" by Bunny Sigler, "It's Good For The Soul (Walter Gibbons disco madness version)" by Salsoul Orchestra, and "It's A Better Than Good Time (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by Gladys Knight & The Pips.

VariousYou Need This – An Introduction To Black Saint & Soul Note Records 1975 to 1985 (3LP set) ... LP
Black Saint/BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... $24.99 28.99
A tremendous look at one of the coolest jazz labels of all time – and one that has an especially strong focus on the more spiritual side of its music! The paired Black Saint and Soul Note labels came along from the Italian scene right at a time when so many other American companies were shutting their doors – former spiritual jazz powerhouses like Strata East, Impulse, and Black Jazz were moving beyond the music, or disappearing entirely – which made the role of Black Saint/Soul Note such a crucial one! The company came into the game at a time of boundless creativity in American jazz – and really captured a post-Coltrane generation that was brimming over with fire and new ideas, but just needed a place to find expression – which it did at the label, who recorded dozens of albums in the space of less than a decade, nearly all of which have gone onto become classics over the years. And while there's a side of the label that's much more free jazz and avant garde, the cuts here reflect a Black Saint/Soul Note that's just slightly inside – tunes that are still freewheeling, but also have a rhythmic core – and the kinds of open, soaring solos that were first inspired in the 60s generation of Coltrane and Shepp. The choice of cuts is great – similar to the others in the If Music series – and titles include "Mr Seven" by M'Booom, "Joycie Girl" by Don Pullen with Sam Rivers, "Il Giro Del Giorno In 80 Mondi" by Enrico Rava, "Oasis" by Hamiet Bluiett, "Confessin" by John Stubblefield, "Joobubie" by George Adams & Dannie Richmond, "Verde Que Eu Te Quero Ver" by Rava String Band, "Down Home In New York" by Archie Shepp, "BK" by Air, and "The Nagual Julian" by Billy Bang Sextet.

✨✧ Solomon BurkeBest Of Atlantic Soul – 1962 to 1965 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Run Out Groove/Atlantic, Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The young Solomon Burke looks pretty darn fantastic on the cover here – and he sounds pretty fantastic as well – as the album's a great reminder of why we fell in love with his music in the first place! There's nobody like Solomon Burke during these Atlantic years – a hard-edged singer who was virtually inventing deep soul at the time – taking currents from earlier R&B years, and folding them with a brash, bold energy that was completely heartfelt – and which drew on the same sort of styles that southern soul singers would make their own a few years later. The choice of cuts here is wonderful – 14 numbers that include most of his key classics, plus a few other gems too – with titles that include "Stupidity", "Cry To Me", "Just Out Of Reach", "Baby I Wanna Be Loved", "Home In Your Heart", "If You Need Me", "Got To Get You Off My Mind", "Goodbye Baby", "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love", "Down In The Valley", and "Looking For My Baby".

✨✧ Silver ConventionSave Me ... LP
Midland, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Philadelphia International, 1973. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Smooth female soul from one of Philly's hottest female trios – Gamble & Huff's big answer to First Choice, and an equally important force in 70s female soul! The album's got a nice mixture of Philly groove and tighter crossover arrangements from the likes of Norman Harris, Bobby Martin, Lenny Pakula, and Richard Rome – all top-shelf Philly soul talents who really help move the album past the territory of the girl group soul of the trio's earlier work! Titles include the hit "When Will I See You Again", plus the long-running classic "Dirty Ol' Man", and the cuts "Can't You See What You're Doing To Me", "I Didn't Know", "I Like Being A Woman", and "Year Of Decision".

✨✧ Blue MitchellCup Bearers ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

Salsoul/Ultra, Late 70s/2013. Used ... Out Of Stock
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.

Four Flies (Italy), Early/Mid 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Fuzzy funk-steeped Italian soundtrack grooves of the finest, funkiest early 70s caliber – rare and unreleased gems mined from the RCA Film Music Vaults – with choice bits by Francesco De Masi, Gianni Marchetti, Guido & Maurizio De Angelis, Piero Umiliani and many more! This is a masterfully curated set, paring up some legendary names from the Italian soundtrack scene with comparably lesser-knowns, and it's filled with exciting numbers which have mostly gone undiscovered ever since! Having been granted the keys to RCA's archival castle, they've really dug up some incredible material, and it's put together with the utmost respect. Amazing! Includes "Il Trapianto" by Gregorio Garcia Segura, "Milano, Il Cla Dei Cabresi" by Gianni Marchetti, "Sortilegio" by Silvano D'Auria, "L'Insegnante" by Piero Umiliani, "Sistemo L'America E Torno" by Luis Bacalov, "L'Altro Dio" by Allessandro Alessandroni, "Commissariato Di Notturna" by Roberto Pregadio and many more. 16 in all – many previously unreleased, or issued on vinyl for the first time ever!

Jazzman (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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.

Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first album in many years from Edmondy Krater – an overlooked musical genius from the scene in Guadeloupe – and one who maybe sounds better here than ever before! Krater's always had an ear for blending jazz with some of the more recent currents of the island – but that concept is maybe expressed here most perfectly in the handling of his music by Heavenly Sweetness – a label who've been a recent champion of his classic records, and a great choice for bringing him back into the studio. Krater vocalizes, and plays trumpet, flugelhorn, djembe, and other percussion – with a tight quintet of bass, drums, and additional percussion – plus some great Fender Rhodes – and titles include "A Pa Jodi", "Mi Yo Rive", "Ti Jan Ka", "Lage", "An Ka Sonje", "Nou Kontan", and "Jouwe Tanbou".

✨✧ SunWanna Make Love/Sun Power/Sunburn ... CD
Capitol/BGO (UK), 1976/1977/1978. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A trio of records from Sun – an excellent funk ensemble from the end of the 70s! First up is Wanna Make Love – one of the greatest records ever cut by Sun – a group whose records never made the charts as strongly as their contemporaries, but not for lack of quality! This set's a great batch of heavy ensemble funk with an edge that's not always heard on other Sun records – lots of razor-sharp guitars riffing away in saw-cut modes, striking hard at the grooves of the record, and chilling out nicely for the mellower cuts. The blend is wonderful – totally tight, and totally top-shelf all the way through – yet never in a commercial way at all. Titles include "Wanna Make Love", "My Woman", "Live On Dream On", "The Show Is Over", "Love Is Never Sure", and "They're Calling For Me". Sun Power is a solid smoker from Sun – the kind of tight funk set that made the group one of the greatest soul acts on Capitol Records during the late 70s! There's a wicked Ohio vibe going on throughout – everything focused together, and right on the money – even despite the large size of the ensemble – and touched with a slightly jazzy undercurrent that carries strong echoes of Earth Wind & Fire! Rhythms are nice and tight, with keyboards, guitar, and brassy horns over the top – and on the mellower cuts the vocals have a nicely compressed quality. Titles include "Conscience", "We're So Hot", "Organ Grinder", "She Lives Alone", "Time Is Passing", and "Light Me Up". Last up is Sunburn – a tightly crafted batch of dancefloor funk that reminds us of some of our favorite work from Fantasy Records at the time – especially some of the more righteous groups that blended equal parts jazz and soul! Sun's got a tightness here that's amazing – right up there with Earth Wind & Fire at their best, but not as commercial overall – and instead, always delivered with a nice sense of righteous energy! The set kicks off with the wicked "Sun Is Here", a guitar-driven groover with a very famous sample riff – and a sound that's somehow more stripped-down and jazz funk-driven than a lot of the group's other tunes. Other cuts are pretty great too, with lots of warm bubbly soulful moments – and titles include "Dance", "Long Drawn Out Thang", "I Had A Choice", "Sun Of A Gun", and "You're The One". CD

Safe Trip (Netherlands), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A much-needed look at this sometimes-missed chapter in Italian music – a moment when the Italo Club sound of the 80s had transformed into a scene that gave us some of the cleanest, leanest house music of the time! Earlier Italian imports had a big impact on the birth of house music in Chicago – and a few years later, those forward-thinking sounds were used to bring a needed revamp to Italian club as well – as you'll hear in these wonderfully-executed cuts that often have the best spare sounds of the US underground, mixed with some classic elements that warm things up in a mighty nice way! Both volumes are filled with well-chosen cuts that never got the kind of attention they should have at the time – and titles on this first edition include "Time Unlimited" by High Tide, "Calypso Of House (paradise mix)" by Key Tronics Ensemble, "Audio Trip" by Dreamatic, "Nocturne Seduction" by Night Communication, "In My Garden" by K2, "Trax" by Jacy, "Sunrise Paradise Garage" by Open Spaces, and "Fix Of 4:38pm" by Deep Choice.

An incredible tribute to the short-lived, but extremely influential Prescription label from Chicago – started by Ron Trent and Chez Damier in the mid 90s, as part of the second wave of house sounds from that city – music that was even more underground and farther-reaching than the first wave of house a decade before! The box features most of the rare singles on the label, plus unreleased tracks too – and is very heavy on Trent's music, which was really embracing lots of bigger ideas – taking house music far from the mainstream that had taken over once the first wave spread overseas. Currents of jazz, cosmic energy, and deeper spirits run throughout these sounds – and titles include "Energy", "I Feel The Rhythm", "Space Ridims", "Morning Fever", "Black Magic Woman", and "History" by Ron Trent – plus "Morning Factory" and "Don't Try It" by Chez Damier & Ron Trent, "Enchantment" by Angora, "Soul Samba Express" by Anthony Nicholson & Ron Trent, "Life 4 Living" by USG with Monica Elam, "On My Mind" by Konfusion Kidzz, "Love Is The Message" by Ani, "The Answer" by World Sky & Universes, "Be My" by Noni, and "The Choice" by Chez N Trent.

A fantastic collection of funky mod and psych tracks from the great Rob Bailey – the man who's steered us through a handful of other wonderful compilations over the years, and won our undying respect in the process! Rob's choices are quite far from the obvious – and are made up from a selection of ultra-rare singles that maybe start in the grooviest freakbeat or garage modes of the mid 60s – but then quickly step out in more expansive styles, too – often with a full-on fuzzy guitar in the lead, and some really romping rhythms at the core. The whole thing's a mindblower right from the very first track – and titles include "No One Knows The Day" by Paragraph Music, "Face The New Day" by The Sound Track, "Polka Dotted Eyes" by The Snaps, "If I Didn't Love You Girl" by Travis Pike's Tea Party, "Situation Sad" by Finnigans Wake, "Won't You Say Yes To Me Girl" by Chuck Conlon, "Can't Tell You" by The Fabulous Depressions, "Norwegian Skies" by Bill Euker, "He Means So Much To Me" by Marilyn Mattson, and "Such A Good Thing" by The Showmen.
