100 Proof Aged In Soul100 Proof Aged In Soul ... LP
Hot Wax, 1972. Very Good ... $19.99
A stone burner from 100 Proof Aged In Soul – a group who really take off with this tight second record! The album's a classic from the days when soul music ruled AM radio on both sides of the tracks – and the rest of the album is equally great – packing that tight post-Motown punch that made the Hot Wax label one of the best proponents of Detroit soul in the 70s! Arrangements are by a huge amount of early 70s heavyweights – McKinley Jackson, Paul Riser, and HB Barnum – and the set was produced by General Johnson and Greg Perry, in a style that soars along with the Chairmen Of The Board albums of the time. Titles include "Words", "I Don't Care If I Never Get Over You", "Everything Good Is Bad", "Ghetto Girl", "Nothing Sweeter Than Love", and "Don't You Wake Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Aged In HarmonyYou're A Melody (3 X 7" set – plus magazine) ... 7-inch
Melodies International (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 3x7 inch ... $23.99
A fantastic package of rare soul from the Detroit scene of the 70s – all of the extremely rare singles by Aged In Soul, brought together in an excellent triple 45 collection! The music here has a very spare, indie sort of clubby vibe – a bit like the groove over at P&P Records, but maybe a bit less disco overall – although definitely trying for the dancefloor in the mix of riffing guitar and rhythms! Vocals are often sung by more than one singer – which gives the record a bit of a righteous vibe, and this deeper spirit that really fits the compelling songs – which are all written, arranged, and produced by Arnold Moore, who put the music together. Titles include the original and disco mix of the group's classic "You're A Melody" – plus "I Feel Like Dancing", "Theme For Someone Special", "Dance Awhile", and "Trust In Me". 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousShot In The Dark – Nashville Jumps – Blues & Rhythm On Nashville's Independent Labels 1945 to 1955 (8CD set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 40s-Mid 50s. Used 8CDs ... Out Of Stock
An amazing 8 CD collection of rare rhythm & blues, jump tunes, and gospel-tinged soul from the Nashville independent scene of the 40s and 50s! Long, LONG before "Music City USA" was churning product the way it does today, Nashville had a true working class ethic along with the standard biz behavior, with lots of indies with full rosters of amazing artists that never got their just rewards. It wasn't just country down there – labels like Bullet, Tennessee, Republic, Excello and others represented the soulful sounds of Nashville, and these long lost treasures are in many cases getting their first legit reissues here! 7 CDs of music, thematically assorted, and a bonus disc with interviews. Also includes the most massive, well done book we've ever seen included in a set like this – 276 hardbound glossy pages, full of photos and richly written bios and history. It's the kind of thing you might see for around $100 in a bookstore! But here you also get close to 100 tunes, including "Baby Don't You Want To Go" by Sherman Williams, "Three Little Girls" by Cecil Gant, ""Bewildered" by the Red Miller Trio, "When You're Baby Gets Up And Goes" by BB King, "Late Hour Blues" by the Bluejacks, "Almost Boogie" by Louis Brooks, "Mississippi Boogie" by Julius King, "You've Gotta Stop This Mess" by Fat Man with Sunnyland Slim, and tons more!

8th Day8th Day ... LP
Invictus, 1971. Near Mint- ... $19.99
The first album by 8th Day – a record with a bit of a complicated pedigree, but a massive amount of 70s Detroit soul as well! The set was supposedly compiled to cash in on the group's hit single "She's Not Just Another Woman" – reportedly recorded by 100 Proof Aged In Soul, but issued under the name 8th Day, so that it wouldn't compete with the group's other hits on the charts! But after that cut took off, Holland-Dozier-Holland needed a group to back it up, so they assembled some lesser-known, but strong, Detroit soul talents to record this album. Unlike the group's second album, which is a much funkier affair overall, this one sounds a lot like 100 Proof – with a raspy southern-tinged soul approach, filtered through some tighter, more full-on HDH arrangements that really give the whole thing a great sort of punch! A great album if you dig the Invictus/Hot Wax soul sound – and titles include "I'm Worried", "Enny Meeny Miny Mo", "You've Got To Crawl Before You Walk", "Just As Long", and "She's Not Just Another Woman". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny HammondHigher Ground ... LP
Kudu, 1973. Very Good ... $8.99
Massive work from Johnny Hammond – stretching out here in some totally jamming grooves that really transform his style for the 70s! The sound here is a lot hipper and tighter than some of Hammond's more rough-edged soul jazz of the 60s – a groove that's a great precursor to his more famous meetings with Larry Mizell a few years later – and equally great! Johnny's got plenty of space here – and is really taking his time with the grooves, thanks to some open ended arrangements by Bob James, who also plays electric piano on the record! The record is a seminal piece of work in the transformation of the chunky 60s organ sound to a sweeter 70s keyboard groove – and was proof that Johnny, more than most of his 60s soul jazz contemporaries, was ready to embrace the new sounds of the decade with open arms. Includes the great sample cut "Big Sur Suite" – plus "Higher Ground", "Summertime/The Ghetto", and "Catch My Soul". LP, Vinyl record album

Bill HardmanSaying Something – The Bill Hardman Quintet ... LP
Savoy, 1961. Near Mint- ... $19.99
One of the few albums ever cut as a leader by trumpeter Bill Hardman – an excellent talent who's probably known best for his late 50s work with Art Blakey in the Jazz Messengers! The group's a strong batch of hard-edged soulful players – a quintet that includes Ronnie Matthews on piano, Sonny Red on alto, Doug Watkins on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – and the overall groove is hard bop, with a lyrical touch, in the best classic Blue Note mode! Titles include "Jo B", "Assunta", "Buckeye Blues", and "With Malice Towards None". LP, Vinyl record album

Wilson PickettExciting Wilson Pickett ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Always exciting work from the Wicked Pickett – a set that's filled with sharp-edged soul tracks throughout – and which perfectly shows why Wilson was a key link between funk and soul back in the 60s! The album was recorded at the two great hubs of southern soul production in the 60s – Memphis and Muscle Shoals – and the tracks includes some key Pickett reworkings of other hits into his own classics, plus a few more penned for the album that are equally as great! Titles include "In The Midnight Hour", "Land Of 1000 Dances", "Something You Got", "Mercy Mercy", "Danger Zone", "It's All Over", "99 & 1/2 Won't Do", and "634-5789". LP, Vinyl record album

Revolutionary Blues Band (Gene Page)Revolutionary Blues Band ... LP
Coral, Late 60s. Sealed ... $14.99
Forget the "blues" in the title – because this mostly a totally cool album of funky jazz! The project is arranged by soul producer Gene Page, and it features the funky reed work of a young Tom Scott – who's at the height of his powers here, and who makes most of the tracks jiggle nicely. Bob Thiele produced, and the record bears the Flying Dutchman logo on the back – which is good, because it's got a similar feel to some of the jazz/funk/easy albums on the Flying Dutchman label. Titles include "Milkman, Milkman Leave Me Some Cream Today", "Have A Little Bit More", "Lanoola Goes Limp", "Juicy", "Cutting The Mustard", "Funky Lady", and "Ring My Chimes". A few tracks have vocals – but the album's mostly instrumental! LP, Vinyl record album

SeawindSeawind (1980 – A&M) ... LP
A&M, 1980. Very Good ... $1.99
A sweet bit of fusion-tinged soul – produced with a sunny Hawaiian groove by George Duke, and featuring some of the tightest tunes from Seawind to date! Pauline Wilson sings lead vocals on the album – in a cool breezy mode that fits well with the compressed instrumentation of the album – and the overall groove is polished, but still with the same soulful depth as the group's other work! The album's got a great balance of styles, and tracks include "Pra Vose", "Still In Love", "What Cha Doin", "The Two Of Us", and "Love Him, Love Her". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cannonball AdderleyThem Dirty Blues ... CD
Riverside/Capitol, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the all-time great ones by Cannonball! This record captures him in the prime of his early soul jazz fame – working with an unbelievably heavy quintet that featured Bobby Timmons on piano (with Barry Harris sitting in on a few tracks), Sam Jones on bass, Louis Hayes on drums, and brother Nat Adderley on cornet. The quintet forged a sound that made them an immediate hit – and which had their tight, jagged, soul-drenched sound getting copied by everyone. The record features some amazing soul jazz standards – like Nat's original version of "Work Song", the first-ever record of Timmons' amazing "Dat Dere", Cannon's slinky "Them Dirty Blues", and the jaunty groover "Jeannine", a wonderful cut by Duke Pearson that never sounded better! The CD features alternates of "Work Song" and "Dat Dere" – for a total of 9 tracks in all! CD

Invictus/Harmless (UK), 1970s. New Copy 14 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest collections of 70s soul we've ever seen – an amazingly complete compilation that features every single 45 issued by the team of Holland Dozier Holland on their three famous soul labels of the time – Invictus, Hot Wax, and Music Merchant! The set features a whopping 288 tracks – which includes every single 45, both a-side and b-side – plus 16 previously unreleased acetates and test pressings, and 3 more unreleased Tom Moulton mixes! The whole thing comes in a massive book-style cover – with 64 pages of notes and label scans – all to support a mountain of massive soul tracks from the likes of Laura Lee, Smith Connection, 100 Proof Aged In Soul, 8th Day, Warlock, Just Brothers, Jones Girls, Lamont Dozier, Eloise Laws, Barrino Brothers, Chairmen Of The Board, Honey Cone, Lee Charles, The Politicians, Silent Majority, Flaming Ember, Earl English, New York Port Authority, and many more!

Junior ManceHarlem Lullaby/I Believe To My Soul ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1966/1967. Used ... $14.99
Two sides of late 60s Atlantic work by pianist Junior Mance – laid back to back on one CD. Harlem Lullaby is pop soul jazz work from Mance – who's playing here in a semi-traditional style that fits the evocative title of the album. Most of the cuts feature Mance in a trio – wither with Gene Taylor or Bob Cunningham on bass, and Ray Lucas or Alan Dawson on drums. There's two cool tracks in which Mance plays harpsichord – the cuts "The Uptown" and "Cootin" – and these have a nice edgey vibe that makes them stand apart from other tracks like "Harlem Lullaby", "That Mellow Feeling", and "I'm Falling For You". I Believe To My Soul Not is as funky as some of Junior's other work from the time, but a nice album of tightly-arranged late 60s soul jazz – with help from good players like Hubert Laws, Jimmy Owens, David Newman, and others. The sound is similar to other Atlantic albums around the same time – with that "trying for an instrumental hit" kind of feel that often brings out some strong and subtle solo performances from the leader. Titles include "Time & A Place", "I Believe To My Soul", "My Romance", "Don't Worry 'Bout It", and "Golden Spur". CD

✨✧ James Brown/Maceo & All The King's MenGreatest Soul On Earth (Live At Studio 54/Doing Their Own Thing) ... CD
Fuel 2000, 1970/1980. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2CD package – with one disc from James Brown, and another from Maceo Parker! The best disc here is disc 2 – which features the classic album Doing Their Own Thing, recorded by Maceo Parker & All The Kings Men! The album was recorded during a period when Maceo left James Brown's band for a few years, and struck out on his own with a firey little combo that was every bit as funky as the JBs! The record captures the group at the height of their powers, and it's a must, must, must-have for any fan of the the James Brown sound – as it's got lots of hard drums, rumbling basslines, and some killer work on funky horns! Funny, funky, and a little bit jazzy too – and with the cuts "Funky Women", "Got to Getcha", "Southwick", "Mag-Poo", "I Remember Mr Banks", "Thank You For Letting Me Be Myself", "Shake It Baby", and "Better Half". Disc 1 features a James Brown live date, recorded at Studio 54. The set's a lot less disco than you'd guess from the location of the performance – but it's still very much in that fast-funk mode that James was using at the end of the 70s – a style that was his answer to club music, but which was still largely forged out of a soulful funk-based groove! Titles include "Sex Machine", "Body Heat", "Get Up Offa That Thing", "Gonna Have A Funky Good Time", "Lost Someone", and "The Payback/It's Too Funky In Here". CD

Art PepperSurf Ride ... CD
Savoy/Sony (Japan), 1952/1954. New Copy ... About October 25, 2017
A classic 50s album on Savoy – a set that's almost as memorable for its cartoony cover as it is for the great Art Pepper material on the record! Pepper's tone here is wonderful – that sharper-edged, more soulful approach that you often get in his smaller label 50s work – a nice contrast to some of the smoother sides of Art, and the part of his sound we really love. The album's got three different west coast groups working with Pepper – with players who include Russ Freeman or Hampton Hawes on piano, Jack Montrose on tenor, Joe Mondragon or Monte Budwig on bass, and Larry Bunker or Bobby White on drums. But Art's the main star of the set – blowing beautifully throughout, with both jaw-dropping precision and a tremendous sense of sound! Titles include "Tickle Toe", "Chili Pepper", "Susie The Poodle", "Brown Gold", "Holiday Flight", "Surf Ride", "Straight Life", "Cinnamon", and "Thyme Time". CD

✨✧ Gil Scott-HeronReflections ... CD
Arista (Germany), 1981. Used ... $6.99
A great little album that's often overshadowed by its hit – the 15 minute "B-Movie", which was sort of an overly-wrought protest piece about how the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 was going to turn America into a bad b-movie. Not that that track's bad – although its politics have certainly dated by now – but the real strength of the album are the jazzy numbers, written in Gil's beautiful righteous style forged in the soul jazz underground of the 70s. These include the stellar "Is That Jazz?", a contemplative track about the future of the art form, a mellow version of Bill Withers' "Grandma's Hands", the moody "Storm Music", and "Gun", a good groover with a message about the right to bear arms.

Stevie WonderHotter Than July ... LP
Tamla, 1980. Very Good Gatefold ... $6.99
A bit smoother than early days, but still very nice and soulful – and did we expect any less from Stevie? The record's got a nicely flanged-out soul groove – with a style that kind of expands on the vocal and keyboard production of the early 70s, taking the groove towards a sound that many other bands would cop in the 80s. Proof of this is the cut "Master Blaster (Jammin)", which many bands would cover at the time – plus lots of nice LP cuts, like "Did I Hear You Say You Love Me", "Cash In Your Face", "All I Do", and "I Ain't Gonna Stand For It".

DelfonicsSound Of Sexy Soul ... LP
Philly Groove, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A groundbreaking album of vocal group soul – right from the first note! The record kicks off with the sublime "Ready Or Not, Here I Come" – which starts with fierce stepping strings that are actually funky, then soars into some of the best harmonies the group ever put to record, superbly arranged by the great Thom Bell, who also wrote the track. As the album progresses, the sound expands further to encompass many elements that would become the blueprint for vocal groups over the next few years – like twangy electric sitar, cascading orchestrations, and pinched lead vocals that take a lot more chances than most group singers had been taking for years! There's still a bit of a 60s soul sound to some of the cuts, but the album's a watershed – not only for Thom Bell and the group, but for harmony soul as well! Titles include "Ready Or Not Here I Come", "My New Love", "Loving Him", "With These Hands", "Somebody Loves You", and "Everytime I See My Baby". LP, Vinyl record album
