Freddy RobinsonCreeper/Go-Go Girl ... 7-inch
Checker, Late 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
Heavy heavy stuff from Freddie Robinson! "The Creeper" is an excellent bit of funky soul – produced with some great Monk Higgins touches, including solid loping groove, and some nice female backing vocals! "Go Go Girl" continues the bluesy groove – but is punched up into some Mose Allison territory! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Labels have some marker and a piece of masking tape.)

Freddy RobinsonBluesology ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... About July 1, 2016 (delayed)
Wild funk from guitarist Freddy Robinson – hardly the "bluesology" you'd guess from the title! Sure, Freddie started his career as a blues guitarist on early Chess sessions – but during the early 70s, he cut some monster funky recordings for Stax, recordings that had a bluesy guitar in the middle, but some nice funky rhythm backing him up! The great Monk Higgins had a hand in most of the recordings – which is why they sounded so nice, and which is why they deserve a lot more credit than the sleepy "bluesology" title would imply. There's a nice batch of previously unissued material on here – plus tracks from Robinson's LPs Off The Cuff and At The Drive In. Titles include "Off The Cuff", "The Creeper", "Sister Hot Pants", "Black Fox", "Good Feeling", "I Remember", "House Hunting", "Here Comes Your Good Thang", "Changing Dreams", and a very dope version of "River's Invitation".

Blue MitchellBantu Village ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
One of the funkiest albums ever on Blue Note – a set that mixes the trumpet talents of Blue Mitchell with some killer backings from Monk Higgins – all in a groove that more gritty edges than the best funky soundtracks of the time! Higgins keeps the backings full, but always quite lean – fusing all elements together into a sharp, tight rhythm that steps along with some of the slight African touches you might guess from the title – a groove that's not really that authentic, but which resonates with some of the best inspirations that Hugh Masekela was bringing to American music at the time. And while the album might be an attempt to cash in on Masekela's groove, the feel here is really quite different overall – as tracks are nicely stretched out, with plenty of room for jazzy solo work – and a groove that's much harder overall, thanks to Higgins! Other players include Freddy Robinson on guitar, Wilton Felder on bass, Paul Humphrey on drums, and Plas Johnson on tenor – and titles include "HNIC", "Flat Backing", "Na Ta Ka", "Bantu Village", and "Blue Dashiki". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousChicago Radio Soul ... CD
Chess/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really great look at a special side of the Chess Records soul catalog of the 60s – tracks that were very big on Chicago airwaves in the label's home town, yet which hardly got much play at all in the rest of the country! The collection's put together by Robert Pruter – the man who (literally) wrote the book on Chicago soul – and it's a wonderful portrait of soul in the Windy City of the 60s, with strands of music that nicely differ from the overplayed hits in later years. The collection also stands as a super-strong tribute to the never-ending genius of Chess Records – a label that never seems to let us down whenever we uncover a soul single we've never heard before! Titles include "Shy Guy" by The Radiants, "No Faith No Love" by Mitty Collier, "I Can't Help Myself" by The Gems, "Love Is A 5 Letter Word" by James Phelps, "A Thousand Miles Away" by Jo Ann Garrett, "Selfish One" by Jackie Ross, "Strange Feeling" by Billy Stewart, "The Creeper" by Freddy Robinson, "Peak Of Love" by Bobby McClure, "Lonely Girl" by Andrea Davis, "This Heart Of Mine" by Tony Clarke, "Bossa Nova Bird" by The Dells, and "Only Time Will Tell" by Etta James.

✨✧ VariousShattered Dreams – Funky Blues 1967 to 1978 ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Funky blues treasures from the late 60s & early 70s – a once-scoffed at movement from a period when aging blues stars and purist blues fans alike were hesitant to accept their beloved style modernized in a funky fashion – but the best of it stands up today as some of the coolest and most unique funk, blues and soul of the era! BGP does a terrific job here of digging a bit deeper then some the more famous blues funk fusions, with numbers by Slim Green, Al King, Icewater Slim, Little Milton, The Johnny Otis Show, Al King, Big Daddy Rucker, Buddy Guy and more. 21 tracks in all: "Shake 'Em Up" by Slim Green, "It Took A Long Time" by Finis Tasby, "I'm Not The Best" by Buddy Guy, "Tough Competition" by Ray Agee, "Eli's Pork Chop" by Little Sonny, "Playing On Me" by Albert King, "Good Feeling" by Freddy Robinson, "Welcome Home" by Lowell Fulson, "Comin' At Ya Baby" by The Johnny Otis Show, "That's What Love Will Make You Do" by Little Milton and more.

World Pacific, 1960s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
