Al GreenKeep On Pushing Love/Your Heart's In Good Hands ... 7-inch 7-Inch
Outta Sight (UK), 1996. New Copy ... $7.99
Later work from Al Green – produced by Arthur Baker, who sets Al up in some surprisingly nice contemporary grooves! "Keep On Pushing" has a nice stepping groove from the start – but Al's vocals still have all that classic style overall – that sublime, spiritual flow that just gets better and better as the tune rolls on! "Your Heart" is great too – a joyous midtempo groover that stands strongly with Greens' classics from the 70s! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Julius BrockingtonSophisticated Funk ... LP LP format
Today, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Funky keyboard tracks from Julius Brockington – a mad early 70s figure who not only cut some wild funk, but who also ended up doing a fair bit of gospel work in later years. This set's a good bit of stoner funk tracks – in the wilder mode of the Perception/Today label – and it's got production by Boo Frazier and Patrick Adams that is very "hands off" when it comes to Brockington's keys. The track list includes covers of some soul stuff like "Rock Steady" and "Do Your Thing" (which is done in a nice long version), plus a good original called "Cold Water". LP, Vinyl record album

Julie BuddJulie Budd ... LP LP format
RCA, 1971. Sealed ... $4.99
A hip early 70s album arranged and produced by Tony Hatch – not nearly as well known as his work with Jackie Trent or Petula Clark, but still pretty darn great nonetheless! Julie's got a style that's a bit less poppy than some of her predecessors – at least not in a 60s way – and she slides out nicely here with a warm quality that's rich and full, but gets a good sense of pacing and timing from Hatch. In other hands, Budd might be a bit too over the top, or too emotive – but Tony's skill with singers really helps her find focus here, on a set of tunes that include "Touch Me", "Just Say Goodbye", "How Can I Be Sure", "West Side Apartment", "You've Got A Friend", and a remake of "Call Me".

Raheem DeVaughnLove Behind The Melody ... CD CD format
Jive, 2008. Used ... $3.99
Damn great work from Raheem DeVaughn – the full promise of his soulful sojourn in the underground mixtape scene! Raheem first got his start laying down vocals over beats and other folks' tracks on self-crafted CDs that changed hands covertly in the east coast scene – and that experience gave him plenty of time to grow and mature, quietly developing his sound to a point where he can really burst forth with power on a record like this! There's still a bit of the old mixtape feel going on here – a range of older musical influences that inform Raheem's tunes – and a personal, almost casual approach that has DeVaughn speaking intros to some tracks, almost as if he's spinning them out with a personal, conversational style. Yet the production is also much better than before too – quite warm, with some great beats and keys in the mix – proof that stepping out of the underground can often be a good thing for a soul artist. Titles include "Customer", "Hello Love", "Woman", "Love Drug", "Friday", "Can We Try Again", "Empty", "Four Letter Word", and "Woman I Desire". Includes guest appearances from Floetry, Big Boi, and Malik Yusef. CD

Karl Drewo & Francy BolandClap Hands Here Comes Charlie ... CD CD format
Rearward/Schema (Italy), Mid 60s/1999. Used ... $9.99
An excellent album of groovy jazz from the European scene of the mid 60s – and one that pairs the talents of the great (and nearly forgotten) Austrian tenor player Karl Drewo with the groovy small band of the legendary pianist Francy Boland! Although he hails from Vienna, Drewo's tone is nice and deep, with a heavy cutting tenor sound that's right up there with American giants like Johnny Griffin or Eddie Lockjaw Davis. He's playing here with a tight hardbop septet, fronted by Francy Boland, and featuring a unique 3-piece trombone section for the rhythm parts. Most of the solos are Drewos', and his tenor cuts nice and deep through the arrangements of the band as they groove with a good solid sound. Titles include "JLK", "Young Bucks", "Clap Hands Here Comes Charlie", "Limehouse Blues", "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You" and "Foot Pattin". Nice cover, too! CD

Bob JamesHands Down ... LP LP format
Tappan Zee, 1983. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $3.99
A nice litle set from Bob James – thanks to a good degree of warmth in the keyboards, which still include Fender Rhodes alongside acoustic piano and some more advanced 80s keys! While other artists of his generation were really schmaltzing things up by this point in time, Bob still keeps things pretty laidback and cool – mostly using smaller instrumentation on the tracks, and going for a lean mode that retains the best focus on his keyboard lead and solos. Some of the tunes are mellow, but still nice – and titles include "Shamboozie", "Spunky", "Macumba", "Roberta", "It's Only Me", and "Janus". LP, Vinyl record album

Syl JohnsonSyl Johnson With Melody Whittle ... CD CD format
Twinight, 2013. Used ... $6.99
Syl Johnson, back in action and sounding great – and working here with key help from the younger generation too! As the title indicates, Johnson's singing here with up-and-coming vocalist Melody Whittle – a contemporary artist, but one with deep soul touches that work perfectly with Syl's classic approach – all wrapped up here with a style that's partly old school, and partly that modern evolution of the southern soul style you might find on a label like Malaco – further proof that Johnson just keeps on growing after all these years! Daughter Syleena makes an appearance on the set, and shades things in with some of her own flavors too – and titles include a few remakes of old tracks too. Tracks include "Mr Invisible", "I'm With You Too", "Turn Back The Hands Of Time", "Is It Because I'm Black 2006", "Ms Fine Brown Frame", "Loving On The Run", "Baby I'm Scared Of You", "Goodie Goodie Good Times", "Mellow Down Easy", "I'm Just A Freak For You", and "Just Make Love To You".

Krzysztof KomedaCul De Sac – Original Soundtrack ... CD CD format
Soundtrack Classics (Germany), Early 60s. Used ... $6.99
Dark and spooky jazz from the godlike hands of Kryzstof Komeda! Komeda's best known in the US for his soundtrack work for the film Rosemary's Baby, but this album features tracks he scored for an earlier Roman Polanski film, the dark thriller Cul De Sac. The music is a strange blend of bossa nova, crime jazz, and some sci-fi touches – horns, piano, off-beat rhythms, and some odd production serving up a wonderful set of tunes that make the album one of Komeda's best soundtracks ever. This limited vinyl reissue is pretty short – only 7 tracks in all – but it's also the only way you'll find this material in this form, and comes with a good set of notes on the music and Komeda. Titles include "Walk On The Water", "Pushing The Car", "Radio One", "Cul De Sac", and "Dicky's Death". CD

Willie NelsonIt Will Come To Pass – The Metaphysical Worlds & Poetic Introspections Of Willie Nelson ... CD CD format
RCA/Omni (Australia), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 19.98
Willie Nelson without the long hair – really sounding great on a set of early recordings for RCA! That amazing voice is already very firmly in place – that sharp, raspy tone that was an instant original in country music – especially when singing Nelson's own words, which really dominate this wonderful collection – a set that, as you'd guess from the title, really highlights Willie's more contemplative nature! The whole thing's wonderfully free from any overdone country music cliches – and is a great document of this under-reissued side of Nelson's catalog – the roots that led to the superstardom of the 70s, but with a much more personal, heartfelt quality too. CD features 28 tracks in all – and titles include "Healing Hands Of Time", "Suffer In Silence", "Truth Number One", "Jimmy's Road", "Pages", "Little Things", "Blackjack County Chain", "Me & Paul", "These Are Difficult Times Remember The Good Times", "Born To Lose", "The Ghost", and "Darkness On The Face Of The Earth".

An incredible legacy in music – presented here in a really wonderful package!

William's got a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of – a weird mix of African rhythms and contemporary 70s keyboards – served up in a hypnotic blend of boogie and underground club styles borrowed from the US, but delivered with an earthy, very personal quality – a sound that's gotten Onyeabar plenty of attention over the years. And while Luaka Bop did a wonderful job on collecting together some of his best tracks for their Who Is William Onyeabor compilation, the music here all deserves to be heard – as each record is really something special, and every long track has its own sort of magnetic attraction for the listener! 9 full albums in all – each as a separate CD – Crashes In Love (1), Atomic Bomb, Tomorrow, Great Lover, Anything You Sow, Crashes In Love (2), Body & Soul, Hypertension, and Good Name.

A fierce combination of piano and percussion – the former by Sten Sandell, the latter by Paal Nilsson Love – two very well-matched improvisers! The tracks here are mostly long and dynamic – very freewheeling performances by both musicians, but at a level that really holds strong with a good sense of focus – the kind of sounds that migh run off the rail in the hands of two lesser players, but which continue to burn very hard from the team of Sten and Paal! Tracks include "Jacana", "Kauri", and "Curvature". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Hammond SmithThat Good Feelin' ... CD CD format
New Jazz (Japan), 1959. Used ... $9.99
Good feelings and plenty of soul – some very early work as a leader from Hammond hero Johnny Smith! The set's got Johnny using the organ with lots of stops out – that full, wide range of the instrument that initially knocked so many folks for a loop when it first came into jazz – then really took strong formation in the hands of a player like this! The groove's a bit like a Jimmy Smith record for Blue Note, but a lot grittier too – with some occasional elements of R&B mixed in with the more far-reaching jazz sensibilities. The group features Thornel Schwartz on guitar, who'd played famously with Jimmy Smith – plus George Tucker on bass and Leo Stevens on drums. Titles include the originals "Puddin" and "That Good Feelin" – plus "My Funny Valentine", "I'll Remember April", and "Billie's Bounce". CD

Capitol/Universal (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
Probably the most successful album the Mizell Brothers ever produced, and a fine set of uptempo groovers from this female soul duet! There's some nice jazzy moments underneath the catchy lyrics, and in a way, the album's style is sort of a blueprint for the sound that would emerge over the next few at Capitol Records, where some incredible albums of modern soul would be recorded. And sure, at one level the group's hit "Boogie Oogie Oogie" is a bit of oversaturated pop disco – but there's plenty of other great moments that show the group as a more sophisticated soul outfit, including "This Love Of Ours", "Sky High", "Distant", "You're In Good Hands", "Sky High" and "If We Loved". This remastered version from Big Break UK includes bonus mixes: "Boogie Oogie Oogie (Single Mix)", "Boogie Oogie Oogie (12" New Boogie Mix)" and "Disco Dancin' (12" Disco Mix)". CD

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $22.99
A massive overview of the genius Chicago scene of the late 60s – and a set that's overflowing with some of the heaviest music ever recorded! The collection focuses on the most groundbreaking work from the later Chess years – particularly the funky blues, psychedelic soul, and tripped out jazz that was coming out of the Cadet Concept studios in the hands of producers like Charles Stepney, Richard Evans, and Marshall Chess! The Chess groups were ahead of their time by decades – blending together styles without a thought of simple genre restrictions, often forsaking chart fame and record sales in pursuit of an adventurous groove. And while some of the artists on the set may be familiar names, we can promise that most of them are presented in styles that you may not have heard before – as the collection features many unreissued numbers that are making their first reappearance here! CD set comes with a 40 page set of notes – and features 20 tracks in all, including "Please Newsboy" by Eve Barnum, "Burning Spear" by Soulful Strings, "More & More" by Little Milton, "Baltimore Oriole" by Lorez Alexandria, "Soul Vibrations" by Dorothy Ashby, "Evil" by Howlin Wolf, "Stereo Freeze" by The Stereos, "The Way I Feel" by Phil Upchurch, "Mama's Got A Good Thing" by Laura Lee, "The Wailer" by Sonny Cox, "Leave It In The Hands Of Love" by Fontella Bass, "Why Am I Treated So Bad" by The Majestic Choir & The Soul Stirrers, "She Suits Me To A Tee" by Buddy Guy, "Memory Band" by Rotary Connection, and "In My Body's House" by Gene Chandler.

The DJs' choice here is a pretty good one – a funky batch of modern beats and bits picked by the team of Soulinus and Pun!

P-Vine (Japan), 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest lost funk records of all time! The group is not the British pop band, but a funk group led by the great guitarist Lou Ragland. The album's originally from Canada, which makes it super rare – and these guys are funky funky funky, and kick some major booty with a heavy guitar sound that's just great! Some of the cuts are instrumental, and some of them have some excellent soul vocals that are produced with a nice deep sound that's brought out nicely by the excellent quality of the reissue. The record's got a bit of Sly Stone, a bit of Grant Green, and a bit of Mike James Kirkland – with a tasty raw indie soul vibe. The original album was only pressed up at 500 copies – so this reissue is even more essential, because original copies trade hands for over $1000! Titles include "So Dam Funky", "Ain't That A Groove", "Sexy Moods Of Your Mind", "Messin With Sly", and "What You Want To Do" – plus the bonus tracks "Good For The Gander" and the 45 version of "We Had True Love".

New Morton GouldBeyond The Blue Horizon/Goodnight Sweetheart/Love Walked In ... CD CD format
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1961/1962/1963. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99
A trio of early 60s RCA albums from Morton Gould – all of them with a dreamy, late nite sort of mood! Beyond The Blue Horizon has Gould working in a string-heavy variant of mood music that feels more early 50s than early 60s – very lush orchestrations that have the same day-end feel as the image of a sunset on the cover. Titles include "Where Or When", "Stormy Weather", "Stardust", "Time On My Hands", "Poinciana", and "Shadow Waltz". Goodnight Sweetheart is a great album of languid love tunes – all instrumental, and mixed with string and woodwind presentation that are all very much in the best lush style that Morton Gould forged in the 50s – but with some slight adult, sophisticated elements that really live up to the paperback-style image on the cover. Titles include "La Mer", "Tea For Two", "My Ship", "Let's Put Out The Lights", and "September Song". Love Walked In has Morton Gould tripping along with lazy, laidback orchestrations that are filled with slightly illuminating touches – gentle woodwinds mixed with bits of strings, all in a pillowy-soft mix that should send you off to dreamland. Titles include "Love Walked In", "Why Do I Love You", "I Love Thee", "I'm Sure Of Your Love", and "Parlez Moi D'Amour". CD

Titles include "Magens Bay", "After Dark", "We're All Alone", "Bassik Instinct", "Lights Out", "Let's Get Smooth", "Club Jazz (Quiet Storm mix)", and "Have A Little Faith". CD
Also available Goodbye Manhattan ... CD 5.99

VariousAOR Breaks (deluxe edition) ... CD CD format
Warner (Australia), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
Back in the day, it seemed like the only real source for hip hop was old funk and soul records – yet over the years, as production advanced, DJs found plenty of great grooves back in the 70s mainstream – by pillaging great records like this from the glory days of AOR! The set may well be one of the most unique sample collections we've ever heard – as it features a shameless collection of AM radio goodies from the 70s – but which have all grown to live anew in the hands of artists like Biz Markie, Warren G, Nas, Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa, De La Soul, and others! Some of these are tracks we always liked back in the day – numbers that really stood out from others in the mainstream mix – but they seem to get even more of a sparkle in a set like this, especially given the familiarity of the tunes from their re-use in hip hop tracks. Titles include "Lowdown" by Boz Scaggs, "Sailing" by Christopher Cross, "I Keep Forgettin" by Michael McDonald, "Give Me The Night" by George Benson, "Woman To Woman" by Joe Cocker, "Fly Like An Eagle" by Steve Miller, "Africa" by Toto, "I Can't Go For That" by Hall & Oates, "Summer Breeze" by Seals & Crofts, "This Is It" by Kenny Loggins, "Mr Blue" by Michael Franks, and "Tightrope" by Electric Light Orchestra. Special 2CD version features a bonus mix of these grooves! CD

VariousBert Berns Story Vol 3 – Hang On Sloopy ... CD CD format
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $14.99
The legendary Bert Berns – a hell of a songwriter, record producer, and all-around driving force on the New York scene of the 60s – a creative talent who's left us a huge legacy of great music in both soul and rock! This fantastic third volume covers the full scope of Bert's talents – and somehow manages to dig even deeper than the first two – as it reaches for more obscure, unusual sides that featured participation by Berns – including some gems we'd never heard before! And yes, Bert had his hands in plenty of hits, but lots of these numbers are the more unusual, more interesting cuts he'd craft in the studio – sometimes when extra time was left in the production schedule, or he was trying out new ideas with familiar groups. Titles include "Let The Water Run Down" by Ben E King, "There They Go" by The Exciters, "Chick A Boom" by Van Morrison, "My Block" by Clyde McPhatter, "Stop What You're Doin" by Roy C, "Mo Jo Hanna" by Betty Harris, "One Girl" by Garnet Mimms, "Aretha" by The Drifters, "You Better Come Home" by The Isley Brothers, "I've Got Nothing To Say But Goodbye" by Tammy Montgomery, "You'll Never Leave Her" by Lulu, "Hang On Sloopy" by Arsenio, "Cry Some Tears" by Hoagy Lands, and "Beautiful Brown Eyes" by Solomon Burke.

New VariousOn A Cool Day – The Soulful Side Of Cool Jazz ... CD CD format
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
Not just cool jazz – despite what the title might say – and instead a whole host of soulful jazzy styles from the late 50s and early 60s – pulled forth from the kind of singles that once boomed from backroom jukeboxes in taverns on the south side of town! The collection is great – very much in the spirit of some of the Mod Jazz compilations on Ace, but maybe even a bit more farther-reaching too – and the tracks are a great mix of instrumental and vocal jazz numbers, put together with the same great ear as the soul collections on the Outta Sight label. Titles include "Like Young" by Ann Henry, "I Walk The Streets" by Lyn Avalon, "Scenes In The City (edit)" by Charles Mingus, "Comin Home Baby" by Dave Bailey, "Johnny With The Gentle Hands" by Cootie Williams & Wini Brown, "Baby Do You Ever Think Of Me" by Sonny Stitt, "Goodbye Old Girl" by Art Farmer, "Wayning Moments" by Wayne Shorter, and "Sack O Woe" by Ray Bryant.
