Dorothy AshbyIn A Minor Groove/Hip Harp ... CD
Prestige, 1958. Used ... Just Sold Out!
2 of Dorothy Ashby's classic Prestige sessions – back to back on one CD! First up is material from Hip Harp – great stuff by the grooviest artist ever to play a harp! Dorothy Ashby had a unique soul jazz harp sound, and although the instrument she used is probably more thought of in terms of bedtime lullabies, she actually makes it swing nicely, and with a soulful sound that draws back to traditions of African stringed instruments. Ashby was part of the same scene as Yusef Lateef, and like Lateef, she managed to use odd instrumentation in new contexts, to get a very unique jazz sound. This set's got harp and flute in the lead, and features the tracks "Pawky", "Charmaine", "Jollity", and "Back Talk". On In A Minor Groove, Ashby she swings with an other-wordly quality that's simply amazing, quite exotic, and very much in the camp of players like Yusef Lateef or Les Jazz Modes, who were trying similar experiments in jazz. This session features Dorothy in a quartet with the flute of Frank Wess, the bass of Herman Wright, and the drums of Roy Haynes, whose warm lyrical touches provide the perfect melodicism for the group. Titles include "Rascallity", "Bohemia After Dark", "Taboo", "Autumn In Rome", and "It's A Minor Thing". CD

Claude Paradise Gray/Giuseppe U Net PipitoneNo Half Steppin – An Oral & Pictorial History Of New York City Club The Latin Quarter & The Birth Of Hip Hop's Golden Era ... Book
Wax Poetics, 2016. New Copy ... $34.99
A nice history of the classic hip hop culture in NYC that rose from Manhattan's Latin Quarter club – a vital mid 80s proving ground for legends and trailblazers of the time! No Half Steppin' is laid out beautifully in rarely seen photos, street flyers, and the first-hand knowledge of X-Clan cofounder and Latin Quarter host and manager Claude "Paradise" Gray, with author/activist/historian Giusseppe "U.Net" Pipitone, and a wealth of oral history from key players including Kurtis Blow, Grand Puba, Dana Dane, Prince Paul, Queen Latifah, Big Daddy Kane, Fab Five Freddy, KRS-One, Special K and many more. Paradise Gray was a major part of the team that helped turn the club into a hotbed for early hip hop talent, and many of the incredible photos here are from his personal archives. It's a solid time capsule – with tons of full color photos of destined-for-greatness figures on stage and on the scene, with some of the above mentioned heavies and many more. The textual history here nearly as rich as the photos, with chapters on the club's history, key performances over the years, the dance scene there, the impact of Public Enemy on the scene, and much more. Amazing! Paperback, 200+ pages. Book

Ed PiskorHip Hop Family Tree Book 2 – 1981-1983 ... Book
Fantagraphics, 2014. New Copy ... $14.99 27.99
The fantastic second volume of the Hip Hop Family Tree – a beautiful graphic telling of the growth of hip hop on the New York scene – done in the style of some oversized Marvel Comics special edition from the 70s! The presentation is wonderful – and surprisingly really does the history justice – giving a visual flair to the kinds of information we've learned from Jeff Chang and others, with a similar way of linking things together so that the individual stories become part of a larger cultural development! The paper stock is great – pre-aged, like some vintage comic – but the cover is nice and strong, and really gives the book some heft – a mighty sweet oversized edition, with 112 full color pages!

Ed PiskorHip Hop Family Tree Book 4 – 1984-1985 ... Book
Fantagraphics, 2016. New Copy ... $19.99 27.99
The incredible fourth book in the Hip Hop Family Tree series – artist Ed Piskor's madly brilliant, super fun take on hip hop history, in the style of classic comic books – and the wild styles and huge personalities of '84 & '85 provide the most fertile material of the series to date! It was a pretty amazing couple years in the rap history, storytelling idioms aside. Hip hop culture was busting out of the confines of the inner cities and making its way into the hearts and minds of kids in the country and cornfields of America – all over the world, actually – spreading like wildfire thanks to radio, TV and movies. Piskor's comic panel adventures of the real life characters behind it is wonderful, and a lot of fun – looking at the rise of Def Jam, Dr. Dre laying the pre-NWA foundation, the Hollywood rapsploitation flicks Breakin', Beat Street and Krush Groove, introductions to heroes and heroines Rakim, Salt-N-Pepa (the worthy cover faces), Biz Markie and so many more! It's all the fresher in the oversized format, too, with 112 pages in all. Book

Waylon JenningsPhase One – Early Years 1958 to 1964 ... CD
Hip-O, Late 50s-Mid 60s. Used ... $6.99
Long before he personified the outlaw country movement of the 70s that influenced everyone from Willie Nelson in his greatest years to the alt country heroes rambling around today, Waylon Jennings was hanging out with Buddy Holly and churning out pure-hearted, swaggering early rockers and weepy ballads – Texas style. Ironically, he didn't achieve a lot of the mainstream popularity he was courting until he really started flipping the industry the bird in the early 70s. Thanks to Hip-O these early Jennings nuggets are getting an official release, and as always when early stuff by the great ones get the time of day, we're happy to see it. This is truly a scattershot affair – Jennings found his rebel muse two decades later – but it's a fitting collection of his earlier output that has never been released on CD in the US. Belongs in your collection right there next to the Johnny Cash Sun Records output (in terms of historical perspective if not artistic equality) and Gram Parsons recently released "lost" recordings. Some nice weird covers including "House Of The Rising Sun" and "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright" (which is actually quite great), Jenning's Buddy Holly produced first single "When Sin Stops", and lots more including "Rave On", "Crying", "Sally Was A Good Girl", "Dream Baby", "Love's Gonna Live Here Again", "Burning Memories" and a whole lot more. 20 tracks in all.

VariousComplete Motown Singles Vol 4 – 1964 (limited edition 6CD set) ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, 1964. Used 6CD ... $74.99
An incredible year for Motown Records – beautifully documented in a complete run of singles from 1964! This may be the heaviest-hitting volume in the Complete Motown Singles series so far – as 1964 was a real breakthrough time for the label, a point when they exploded into mainstream consciousness with some landmark hits – but were also still trying their hand at a variety of unusual work with lesser-known artists! And as you've probably found out from the other volumes, looking at Motown through the full range of its singles, you get a far different picture of the label than their overplayed hits – because amidst the famous classics there's plenty of unusual sounds and rare soul moments – an amazing range of greatness that never fails to please! This package features a whopping 6CDs in all (plus a bonus 45 packaged in the cover!) – 165 songs in all, presented in a completely great hardcover package – with 136 pages of notes on each track, plus essays, color photos, and loads of cool images from the 60s! Includes music by Earl Van Dyke, Mary Wells, The Supremes, The Majestics, The Headliners, The Four Tops, Kim Weston, Marvin Gaye, Ray Oddis, The Miracles, The Contours, Carolyn Crawford, Howard Crockett, The Velvelettes, Choker Campbell, Lee Alan, R Dean Taylor, Howard Crockett, Brenda Holloway, Eddie Holland, Bruce Channel, and many others!

Motown/Hip-O Select, 1965. Used 6CD ... $69.99
More great soul music than we ever hoped to find in a single place – and a massive 6CD collection that looks at the key year of 1965 at Motown Records! The package is every bit as wonderful and thorough as the others in this series – with a whopping 166 songs collected in a lavish, full-color book that features nearly 150 pages of notes, photos, and wonderful images from the 60s! And as with other sets, the ultra-cool package even features a replica 45 stuck inside the front cover – a rare vinyl treasure that's almost as great as the CDs. But over and above the packaging, the music's the real thing to rave about here – as 1965 has Motown growing into even new levels of maturity and quality – as demonstrated by the work here by artists who include Stevie Wonder, The Supremes, Chris Clark, Frank Wilson, The Elgins, The Miracles, Earl Van Dyke, The Marvelettes, Barbara McNair, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Jimmy Ruffin, The Dalton Boys, The Four Tops, Brenda Holloway, Little Lisa, Richard Anthony, The Lewis Sisters, Danny Day, The Contours, The Vows, The Hit Pack, Kim Weston, The Freeman Brothers, JR Walker, and many others! All singles offered up with both a and b-sides! CD

Motown/Hip-O Select, 1967. Used 5 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Motown powerhouse is really humming along in 1967 – hitting some of its highest heights to date, and starting to open up even more from its hit formula of a few years before! As with other sets in this amazing series, this 7th volume of Complete Motown Singles is a treasure trove through and through – a package that goes way past the familiar hits of the year (even though there were plenty), to showcase a Motown that's still concerned with trying out new artists and ideas – even though it could have rested on its laurels and just survived off the hits at the time! The package features a whopping 120 tracks in all – presented with the same beautiful packaging as other volumes: a hardcover, book-like format that features 110 pages worth of notes, photos, images, and other details to support the music – plus 5CDs worth of music – by artists who include Brenda Holloway, The Contours, Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, Marvelettes, Paul Peterson, The Spinners, Stevie Wonder, The Isley Brothers, Barbara McNair, San Remo Golden Strings, R Dean Taylor, The Underdogs, Shorty Long, The Elgins, The Messengers, Chris Clark, Edwin Starr, Tammi Terrell, and many more! Also features a bonus 7" single of "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" and "It's Time To Go Know" by Gladys Knight & The Pips – done just like the original! CD

MGM/Hip-O Select, 1965/1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
Was there a sexier 70s celebrity than Joey Heatherton? It's hard to think so – and the cover of this one is more than enough proof that she was America's greatest answer to Brigitte Bardot! And while we certainly remember her from countless variety show appearances at the time, it's actually a bit hard to remember her as a singer (something that's due, no doubt, to the fact that we were so busy looking – not listening!) This great Hip-O set nicely corrects that fact – by bringing together Joey's full 10 track MGM album from 1972, plus some even more obscure singles recorded for Coral and Decca in the mid 60s! The Joey Heatherton Album was done in a sexy sort of 70s pop mode – slight country touches on a few tunes, but mostly glistening adult-styled backings from the team of Tony Scotti and Tommy Oliver. Tunes on that one include "God Only Knows", "It's Not Easy", "Right Or Wrong", "I'm Sorry", "Gone", "Say Hello", and "Someone To Watch Over Me". But almost even better are the rare early singles – 11 more numbers recorded in the mid 60s, and done in a trumpeting girl pop style that actually has plenty of traces of the Brit female sound of the time. Joey's really really great on these numbers – perky, poppy, and still ultra-sexy! Titles include "That's How It Goes", "Live & Learn", "Tomorrow Is Another Day", "My Blood Runs Cold", "Growing Up Is Learning To Say Goodbye", and "But He's Not Mine". CD

Motown/Hip-O Select, 1962. Used 4 CDs ... Out Of Stock
The second volume in Hip-O's Complete Motown Singles series – and arguably even more amazing than the first! This set focuses on the pivotal year of 1962 – and captures Motown at a time when the label was really solidifying its groove, and starting to record work that would help it rise to the top in the 60s. 1962 was a year that Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Mary Wells, The Temptations, The Miracles, The Supremes, The Marvelettes, and The Contours all recorded classics for Motown – alongside other lesser-known soul, jazz, and R&B artists that include Earl Washington, The Vells, The Creations, The Wright Specials, Hank & Carol Diamond, The Valadiers, The Downbeats, and Henry Lumpink. All of these artists are included in the set on a variety of singles from 1962 – both a-sides and b-sides, on a total of 4 CDs that include a whopping 112 songs in all – all packaged in an amazing hardcover book done up in 7" record graphics, featuring nearly 90 pages of notes on every tune in the set! And if that's not enough, you also get a bonus 7" single by Mary Wells – packed nicely in a sleeve on the cover! CD
