Booker T & The MGsPlay The Hip Hits – Previously Unissued Titles ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
It's like a dream come true – the kind of much-needed set for those of us who've always wanted more music from the too-short years that Booker T & The MGs were recording for Stax Records! This CD contains 25 tracks of unreleased Booker T & The MGs material – cut during their classic years at Stax during the 60s, but never issued until the release of this CD – working together to make a double-length collection that really expands their catalog for the label! The tracks on the CD are all cover versions of other 60s tunes – "hip hits", if you will – but the group does as great a job with the material – taking each tune and investing it with a keen Memphis soul groove, thanks to Steve Cropper's raunchy guitar and Booker T's excellent organ! Titles include "Baby, Scratch My Back", "I Was Made To Love Her", "Day Tripper", "On A Saturday Night", "Spoonful", "Soul Man", "Downtown", "The Letter", and "Raunchy". CD

Phil FordDig – Sound & Music In Hip Culture (hardcover) ... Book
Oxford, 2013. New Copy ... $5.99 29.95
A rich look at the role of music in defining counterculture in the 20th century – a book that starts out with jazz, moves through rock, and covers a fair bit of other styles in between – all with a relatively complex style that's as philosophical as it is informative! The author approaches the subject with both a strong historical sense of his examples, and a critical eye towards their deeper power – as he traces the role of musicians who include Charlie Parker, Ken Nordine, Miles Davis, Boyd Raeburn, Bob Dylan, Thelonious Monk, Lennie Tristano, John Benson Brooks, and many others – tying them in with modern art, the beat movement, 60s freedoms, and literature and art of the time. There's a huge amount of notes – dozens and dozens of pages, which cite some even deeper examples – and the book is 303 pages, hardcover, with some black and white images. Book

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

✨✧ Peter HerbolzheimerHip Walk – The Complete Polydor Recordings (Soul Condor/Galaxis/Live Im Onkle Po/Hip Walk/Touchdown/I Hear Voices) (4CD set) ... CD
Polydor (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy 4 CDs ... $36.99
A killer collection of work from one of the funkiest European talents of the 70s – bandleader Peter Herbholzheimer, working here at the head of his Rhythm & Brass group, and his Certain Lions & Tigers ensemble! Although Herbolzheimer's got a clunky name, his sound is incredibly fluid and tight – a large group approach to funk that rivals some of the best American work of his time – including classics from Lalo Schifrin, Johnny Pate, and other key maestros of the blacksploitation era. Peter's got a way of taking a large group of players and really making them groove – a sound that's kind of an electrified extension of the styles first laid out at MPS by the Clarke-Boland Big Band, but served up with a hipper, funkier 70s approach to rhythm. Like the CBBB, Herbholzheimer's groups often feature American players – such as Art Farmer on trumpet or Herb Geller on saxes – alongside more familiar MPS talents like Dusko Goykovich on trumpet, Dieter Reith on organ, Ferdinand Povel on flute, Jiggs Whigham on trombone, and Sigi Schwab on guitar – joined by the legendary Sabu Martinez on a few of the best sessions here! The 4CD set is a massive discovery in music – as it features not only Herbholzheimer's Rhythm & Brass albums, but also records under the group names Certain Lions & Tigers and The Galactic Light Orchestra. The package has some of the same records of the previous MPS collection of Herbholzheimer's work – but also includes some other material too – the full albums Soul Condor, Galaxis, Live Im Onkle Po, Hip Walk, Touchdown, and I Hear Voices CD

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

Ed PiskorHip Hop Family Tree Vols 3 & 4 (gift box with slipcover) ... Book
Fantagraphics, 2016. New Copy ... $43.99 49.99
The fantastic third & fourth volumes of classic comics-enamored/classic rap-reared artist Ed Piskor's Hip Hop Family Tree series – which really gets better and better with each new book as it goes deeper into early hip hop history! Books 3 & 4 hone in on the years 1983-1985, a time when New York acts were breaking big nationally, local labels were shaking hands with majors, and hip hop itself suddenly reached far past the streets and clubs into the suburbs and subdivisions! Piskor's approach is great – comic-style in an oversized book that's like some old Marvel Giant-Size edition from the 70s – with newsprint pages in lurid color, telling the tale of Whodini, The Fat Boys, Slick Rick, Doug E Fresh, Rick Rubin, LL Cool J, The Beastie Boys,the rise of Def Jam Records, Dr. Dre laying the pre-NWA foundation, the Hollywood rapsploitation flicks Breakin', Beat Street and Krush Groove, and more heroes & heroines like Rakim, Salt-N-Pepa , Biz Markie and so many more giants who emerged during these years – with a graphic sensibility that even blows away the previous volumes. The 2 volumes are 110 pages and 112 pages, full color, and all the fresher in the oversized format – even better the 2 volume box set, in a beautiful, sturdy slipcover with dozens more classic players illustrated in a giant line-up on both sides!

The comic series that tells the tale of the early days of hip hop – but presents the story in the style of a Marvel Comics tabloid from the 70s! Ed Piskor's approach to the material is really unique – and he extrapolates historical details into an extended narrative of the scenes with colorful comic-style images. The monthly series anthologizes the stories in a way that's even truer to Piskor's comic book influences than the graphic novel collections. Amazing! Issue #7 goes in the the west coast pop lockin' roots of NWA – the story of the Dr Dre, Grandmaster Lonzo and DJ Yella's World Class Wreckin' Cru! Book

Ella FitzgeraldTwelve Nights In Hollywood (4CD set) ... CD
Verve/Hip-O Select, 1961/1962. Used 4 CDs ... $36.99
Massive music from Ella Fitzgerald – 4CDs worth of sublime small group recordings – all of them live, and all of them previously unissued! The set follows the same format of the Verve Ella In Hollywood album – recorded in a small club setting, with combo backing that really lets Fitzgerald open up and swing – inflecting the tunes with the kind of warmth and spontaneity that she brought to her famous live performances of the time – which were almost always more compelling than her studio sides, no matter how great those were too! The first 3CDs feature material from two weeks' worth of recording in May of 1961 – with backing from Jim Hall on guitar, Lou Levy on piano, Wilfred Middlebrooks on bass, and Gus Johnson on drums – and CD four features Ella returning to Hollywood for two more nights in 1962, with trio backing from Paul Smith on piano, Middlebrooks on bass, and Stan Levey on drums. There's a massive 77 tracks in all – handsomely package in a hardcover 7" square book – which also features beautiful color pages inside, lots of notes on the music, and design that's every bit as groovy as the old albums on Verve. Titles include "Joe Williams' Blues", "It's De-Lovely", "Lorelei", "I Can't Get Started", "Round Midnight", "Perdido", "Little White Lies", "Lover Come Back To Me", "Across The Alley From The Alamo", "Love For Sale", "Exactly Like You", "Mack The Knife", "Teach Me Tonight", "My Kind Of Boy", "It Had To Be You", "Hard Hearted Hannah", "All Of Me", and "Too Darn Hot/Ella's Twist". And, in case you're wondering, there's almost no repetition in the set at all – all discreet, unique tunes – not just the sort of rehash you might get in other concert box sets of this nature! CD

VariousComplete Motown Singles Vol 4 – 1964 (limited edition 6CD set) ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, 1964. Used 6CD ... $64.99
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!

✨✧ James BrownJames Brown Singles Vol 2 – 1960 to 1963 ... CD
King/Hip-O Select, Early 60s. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
The second chapter in the career of James Brown – right when things really started getting interesting, and the Godfather started to explore a huge array of new styles! The 2CD set is a great follow-up to Hip-O's look at Brown's Federal years – and it tracks his first 3 years of singles for King Records – an array of 40 tracks that run the gamut from bluesy soul to instrumental funk – and everything else in between! James is really at the top of his early game here – bursting out with new ideas on every new session – moving at rapid speed to try out new music with Bobby Byrd, JC Davis, Nat Kendrick, and other key group members during these early years. As with the first volume, the collection presents the music in a single-by-single basis – a and b-sides intact, and documented by great notes that further open up this incredible music. Given that the later albums chopped up all of the tracks and released them in greatly different order, the package is an essential back-to-basics look at this time – handled better than we ever could have imagined! Titles include "Can You Feel It (part 1 & 2)", "Three Hearts In A Tangle", "I've Got Money", "The Bells", "Hold It", "The Scratch", "Sticky", "Suds", "I Don't Mind", "Cross Firing", "Night Flying", "I'll Never Never Let You Go", "I Love You Yes I Do", "Oh Baby Don't You Weep (parts 1 & 2)", "Waiting In Vain", "Devil's Den (parts 1 & 2)", "Can You Feel It (part 1)", "Choo Choo", "Prisoner Of Love", "Why Does Everything Happen To Me", "Bewildered (demo)", and "Night Train".

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!

Marisa MonteO Que Voce Quer Saber De Verdade (Brazilian pressing) ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 2012. New Copy ... $8.99
Wonderful work from Marisa Monte – and a set that may well be the greatest record we've heard from her in years! There's a freshness here that grabs us right away – with the lure we felt when first hearing Monte's music many years ago, but cast here in a completely different style, too – more acoustic overall, yet with these beautifully subtle touches in the background – light orchestrations that slide nicely amidst the core small combo instrumentation – all topped with some of Marisa's most heartfelt lyrics in years. The album's got some great contributions from Dadi, who's definitely Monte's other half on the project – plus hip musical contributions from an array that includes Vinicius Cantuaria, Miguel Atwood Ferguson, Marty Erlich, Bernie Worrell, and other surprising guests. Monte often plays ukulele, which has a cool sound that punctuates the record nicely – and titles include "Ainda Bem", "Verdade Uma Ilusao", "Lencinho Querido", "Descalco No Parque", "Depois", and "O Que Voce Quer Saber De Verdade".

A landmark collection – and one that virtually defined an entire generation unto itself! Back in the mid-90s, when this early Soul Jazz collection was first issued – there was a certain strain of Latin music that had been ignored for decades – that unusual fusion of Latin, soul, funk, and jazz that happened mostly in the New York underground of the 70s – at a time when salsa was reigning king, and some of the more soulful currents were getting lost in the shuffle.

BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Rare grooves that go way way past the usual disco and club you might know from the end of the 70s – music pulled from the farthest reaches of the American underground, and which is often quite different than more familiar soul that you might know from the time! The tracks here mostly circulated through the hands of hip DJs and discerning collectors of 12" singles – and they're brought back wonderfully here in this fab second volume of the Private Wax series! Styles are plenty soulful, and nicely avoid common disco modes – and instead move between early boogie and uptempo modern soul, with a fair bit of mellower groovers in the mix too. Titles include "Say You Want To Party" by The N Cee, "Live Today" by Moods, "Love Affair" by Starvue, "I Feel Good (Sean P edit)" by Wes Black & The Star West Orchestra, "Funk Power (Sean P Edit)" by Royal Flush, "Stay & Dance" by Nina Dunn, "Land Of Stuphph" by Sneak E, "Queen Of My Universe" by Infinity, "Dance It Off (Sean P edit)" by Rena, "Drop That Body" by Executive Force, "Groove With Me" by Larry Bailey, "Burning Flame" by Enlightenment, and "Keep That Fire Burning (Sean P edit)" by Lou Johnson.

Killer soul from the LA underground of the late 60s – a motherlode of work from west coast indie Money Records! The label is every bit as hip as you'd guess from its name – a right on the money blend of the best elements in soul at the time – all served up with some of the tightest production west of the Mississippi, and an undeniable ear for the grittiest side of a groove. There's plenty of great twists and turns to many of these tracks – and in a way, the Money sound of this time reminds us a fair bit of the best work coming from Detroit indies operating in the shadows of Motown. Yet the grooves here are also a fair bit fresher because they're often less familiar – never over-compiled like some of the Motor City tracks, and perfectly presented here with top-shelf Kent Soul standards, both in the mastering and notes that go with the set! Titles include a few previously unissued numbers – with 24 tracks that include "Losing You" by Eddie Horan, "I Thought It Over" by Gwenn Stewart, "My Belief" by The MM's & The Peanuts, "Too Late Now" by The Mysteries, "Strange Things Are Happening To Me" by Eric Williams, "Living A Lie" by Bobby Angelle, "Love Insurance" by Henry Strogin, "The Dance Is Over" by Bettye Swann, "Lost My Love Yesterday" by The Larks, "Ain't That Kinda Sad" by The Question Marks, "Should I Take A Chance" by Ted Walters, "Tam A Rind" by Hank Jacobs & The TKOs, and "You Bet I Would" by Pat Livingston.

✨✧ VariousSources – The Sleeping Bag Records Anthology (3 CD set) ... CD
Harmless (UK), 1980s. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
An excellent overview of the legendary Sleeping Bag label – one of our favorite soul indies from the 80s – and a company we could always trust for groundbreaking hip hop and super-fresh soul! More than most labels at the stime, Sleeping Bag really had their ears to the ground on the New York scene – and steered clear of a lot of tinny cliches, and some of the too-electric modes that could dampen the soul of so many other artists – and instead really paved the way for a generation to come with their warmer, more organic sounds on both the dancefloor and the radio. This 3CD set's compiled by Bill Brewster – who also did the excellent other Sources volumes – and the package features 237 tracks that include "Your Life (orig party 12" mix)" by Konk, "Week End (Larry Levan 12" mix)" by Class Action, "Clean On Your Bean (Francois K mix)" by Dinosaur L, "Come Into My Life (Mantronix 12" mix)" by Joyce Sims, "Ladies (12" mix)" by Mantronix, "Just Waiting For You (orig master dub 12" mix)" by Anne Marie, "Johnny The Fox (Mantronix 12" mix)" by Tricky Tee, "Jump Back (orig 12" mix)" by Dhar Braxton, "I Can't Wait (12" mix)" by Kariya, "Stay With You (orig 12" mix)" by Dubb Club, "Don't Play Me Raw (original house in effect 12" mix)" by Ecstasy, "Happiness (Frankie Knuckles 12" mix)" by Nicole, "Cumin Up (12" mix)" by Too Badd, "Sound Of JHS 126 Brooklyn (killer whale under water 12" mix)" by Chill Pill, "Somebody New (Larry Levan 12" mix)" by Jamaica Girls, and "Fresh Is The Word (Mantronik & John Poppo 12" mix)" by Mantronix with MC Tee.

✨✧ VariousStax Of Funk Vol 2 – More Funky Truth ... LP
Stax/BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A mountain of funk from one of the greatest soul labels of all time! Stax is known round the world over for their soulful work – by singers like Otis Redding or Carla Thomas, and instrumental tunes by Booker T & The MGs – but the label was also quite a funky powerhouse – especially as the 60s drew to a close, and the management of the company got a lot hipper, and a heck of a lot more musically open-minded! This killer batch of tracks features 21 numbers from those days – including many obscure and funky tunes that only ever came out on singles, or which were recorded by artists that never made it as big as Stax stars from earlier years. The result of all that obscurity is an extremely fresh selection of tracks – plenty of down-n-dirty funky 45 numbers, played by hip Memphis combos, and featuring some really deep soul vocals. Titles include "Dark Skin Woman" by Sir Mack Rice, "Ain't No Sin" by John Kasandra, "Bump & Boogie" by The Wrecking Crew, "Shame On The Family Name" by Calvin Scott, "Cool Strut" by Bernie Hayes, "Bump Mean" by Sir Mack Rice, "Soul Machine" by Reggie Milner, "How Can You Mistreat The One You Love" by Katie Love, "Cold Blooded" by The Bar Kays, "Do The Side Saddle" by Rufus Thomas, "Stay Away From That Monkey" by Jimmy McCracklin, "Them Hot Pants" by Lee Sain, "Devil In A Man" by Stu Gardner, "Circuits Overloaded" by Inez Foxx, "From Toys To Boys" by The Emotions, "Got It Together (parts 1 & 2)" by Rudy Robinson & The Hungry Five, and "Crosscut Saw" by Albert King.

✨✧ VariousSuper Breaks – Essential Funk, Soul & Jazz Samples and Breakbeats ... CD
BGP/Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Way more than just a typical collection of rare funk and soul – as the selections here not only meet the stunningly high standards of the BGP label – but they've also been sampled in more recent years for hip hop records and other contemporary recordings! Essentially, you've got the best of both worlds – vintage funk from the late 60s and early 70s – brought together in a great collection – and work that's gone onto form the blueprint for contemporary urban sounds as well – which means you'll probably recognize some or part of most of these songs from their use in more contemporary recordings. Nearly every cut's been sampled at least more than once – and titles include "Blind Alley" by The Emotions, "Chick A Boom" by Pazant Brothers, "Eva" by Jean Jacques Perry, "Walk Tall" by Cannonball Adderley, "Baby Let Me Take You In My Arms" by Detroit Emeralds, "Bouncy Lady" by Pleasure, "Tramp" by Lowell Fulson, "Take Yo Praise" by Camille Yarbrough, "Thinking Single" by The Counts, "Different Strokes" by Syl Johnson, "Ike's Mood" by Isaac Hayes, "What A Man" by Linda Lynell, and "Smokey Joe's La La" by Googie Rene. Funky funky! CD

AirtoFree ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the coolest, grooviest albums you'll ever hear from the legendary percussionist Airto – a set that mixes his own Brazilian roots with the electric genius of 70s CTI – all with stunning results! Airto's in the lead – and blows some beautiful wood flute lines alongside percussion – but the album also features killer contributions from Joe Farrell on soprano sax, Hubert Laws on flute, Keith Jarrett on piano, and Chick Corea on Fender Rhodes – as well as a hip bit of vocals from Flora Purim as well! There's some added horns at parts – but the arrangements are relatively spare and subtle – so that most tracks have a core organic quality, very similar to Airto's work on Buddah/Cobblestone, but given a bit more of a CTI twist. Most tunes are quite long and free-flowing – and titles include "Lucky Southern", "Flora's Song", "Creek (Arroio)", and "Return To Forever". CD

Manny AlbamDrum Feast ... LP
United Artists, 1959. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A great one from arranger Manny Albam – heavy on drums, but with some nice exotic touches too! No players listed – but we're guessing it's a pretty hip lineup! LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing.)
