✨✧ Taste Of HoneyTaste Of Honey ... LP
Capitol, 1978. Near Mint- ... $6.99
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 throwaway 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", and "If We Loved".

Wild HoneyUntamed ... CD
TK/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $22.99
An obscure disco trio from the Miami soul scene of the 70s – working here in a way that's maybe like a deep soul take on some of the Philly female trios of the same time! The strings are soaring and the grooves are tight – but there's maybe a richer vocal approach from the group than just a few females singing along with a club track – a mode that could have made them a hell of a southern soul trio had they recorded back in the 60s – and which really keeps things interesting here! Arrangements are by Mike Lewis and Clarence Reid – definitely with some familiar TK Records touches, but also maybe more responsive to the vocal needs of the group as well. Titles include "Just Three Nights Away From You" and "Can You Smell My Love Burning", both fantastic ballads – plus "You Danced Your way Into My Life", "This Time Tomorrow", "Selfish For Unselfish Reasons", and "Oops Oops Means I Love You".

Beach BoysBeach Boys 1967 – Sunshine Tomorrow (Wild Honey stereo/Smiley Smile sessions/live unreleased tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1967. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.99
An amazing treasure for fans of the Beach Boys during their highest moment of genius – a huge batch of unreleased tracks from their important year of 1967 – plus the rare stereo mix of Wild Honey! We love the Wild Honey album – a back-to-basics album of sorts – shorter, catchier songs recorded by the group after the collapse of Smile – but a record that still has some really wonderful moments overall – and which shows that The Beach Boys would never be the same after Pet Sounds! There's a mix of older rock themes and new adult ones here – sung by a group who's really growing into their emotions, and approaching things from new directions than in the past. Heartbreak and happiness are both center stage here – often at the same time – on titles that include "Wild Honey", "Country Air", "I'd Love Just Once To See You", "Darlin", and "How She Boogalooed It". The 2CD set features 20 more amazing tracks from the sessions for the record – all very cool alternate songs or in progress compositions – of the sort that you've heard in the Smile or Pet Sounds collections – really showing Brian Wilson's genius in the studio. Plus, there's also 10 more songs from the Smiley Smile sessions – which are equally wonderful too – never issued before! Then, there's a full unissued live album – Lei'd In Hawaii - with a total of 13 tracks – then 5 more live tracks from Hawaii in 1967, and another 5 more unreleased tracks from an east coast tour late in the year! The total for the set is 30 unreleased studio tracks, 23 unreleased live tracks – and 11 more numbers from the Wild Honey album! CD

Beach BoysSmiley Smile/Wild Honey (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, Late 60s. Used ... $6.99
Fantastic stuff! Smiley Smile is the issued version of Smile, a classic – and even though some may gripe that it's missing the 50% extra material that was supposed to be on the Smile set, it's still utterly fantastic! Titles include "Vegetables", "Heroes & Villains", "Fall", "Little Pad", "With Me Tonight", and "Wind Chimes". Wild Honey is a great lost album, too – one that has the Beach Boys going back to more stripped-down sounds, but still staying kind of odd and eerie, on tracks like "Let The Wind Blow", "I'd Love Just Once To See You", "Country Air", "Aren't You Glad", and "Here Comes The Night". CD also features 6 bonus tracks, including alternate takes from the Smile sessions! CD

Martin DennyTaste Of Honey ... LP
Liberty, Mid 60s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A great later moment from Martin Denny – a set that gave him a big 60s hit in a sweet version of "Taste of Honey"! Denny approaches the tune with all the great mellow moods that Bobby Scott intended – none of the too-fast styles of Hirt, and instead the slow-moving rhythms that work perfectly for the blue undercurrents on the piano. Other tunes follow in a similarly nice blend – still a bit exotic, but almost showing more of a vibes/piano/percussion mix that seems to be borrowed from George Shearing or Cal Tjader – one that we approve of highly! Titles include "Route 66", "Exodus", "I'm In A Dancing Mood", "Black Orchid", "Take Five", and "Taste Of Honey". LP, Vinyl record album

Tramp (Germany), 2006. New Copy ... $8.99
Leave it to Tramp Records to make our turntable happy – because both cuts here are totally great! "Mo Slow" is a snapping little jazz number that feels like it was lifted from a mid 60s Lee Morgan album – less the deep funk that the label first gave us years back – and more a soul jazz tune with a great sense of rhythm, and wonderful interplay between trumpet and tenor sax! Not surprisingly, the flipside is a great remake of Duke Pearson's "Sweet Honey Bee" – penned around the same stretch – and done here with a slow-loping flute line that's really great! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Morgana KingWith A Taste Of Honey ... LP
Mainstream, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $0.99
A fantastic step forward for singer Morgana King – just the kind of record that really let the vocalist unlock all the sort of special power that would set her apart from the rest for decades to come! Morgana's got this completely distinct approach to jazz singing – a mode that's short on attack, robust on decay, and which flows in a way that really illustrates the lessons the lady learned from instrumentation – a sense of flow and phrasing that makes her instantly recognizable, no matter what the setting. Arrangements by Torrie Zito – with the same hip, dark mode he used with Tony Bennett – and titles include "A Taste Of Honey", "Easy To Love", "Prelude To A Kiss", "Corcovado", "When The World Was Young/Young & Foolish", and "Lazy Afternoon".

Junior ParkerLike It Is/Honey Drippin Blues ... CD
Mercury/BGO (UK), 1967/1969. New Copy ... $13.99
A pair of late 60s gems from the bluesy singer Junior Parker – back to back on a single CD! Like It Is features standout soul from the great Junior Parker – a singer who started out in blues, and already had a big legacy of music for Sun and Duke Records by the time of this Mercury set – but maybe sounding even more amazing here with some soul touches in the backings! The set was produced by Bobby Robinson, and arranged by Gene Bowlegs Miller – and has a Memphis recording pedigree that's a bit like the best way that Stax/Volt was mixing blues and soul in the late 60s! There's still some of the slower-burning Duke moments, but there's also some great sock-soul tracks too – on titles that include "Come Back Baby", "Just Like A Fish", "Country Girl", "Sometimes I Wonder", and "Cracked Up Over You". Honey Drippin Blues is killer work from Junior Parker – an artist who was already great in his early Duke Records years – but one who really seemed to take off even more as the 60s moved on! On records like this, Parker picks up a strong undercurrent of funky soul – a groove that's a perfect fit for Mercury's Blue Rock label – which often did a great job of merging the worlds of blues and soul – especially in the music of Junior Wells. Production has lots of nice Chicago soul touches, and at times Junior's vocals move into a territory that's almost a bit like the groove of Tyrone Davis at the time. Great stuff throughout – and titles include "I Got Money", "Lovin Man On Your Hands", "Easy Lovin", and "I'm So Satisfied". CD

✨✧ VariousSwingbillies – Hillbilly & Western Swing On Modern/Colonial/Flair 1947 to 1952 ... CD
Modern/Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's no typo in the title – as the unique phrase "Swingbillies" is a perfect summation of the set – which mixes together rare postwar work from the West Coast scene – cool cuts that are partly western swing, partly early country – and which almost stand as a precursor to the Bakersfield years to come! The music is all from the catalog of Modern Records – an imprint best known for R&B and blues, but one that also really had its ear to the ground for all the new sounds bubbling up in LA after the war – sounds that included a big influx of hillbilly styles that hit the coast in the hands of folks moving westward for jobs and success. Most artists here are relatively obscure, but their work resonates with qualities that both matches the big western swing stars of the period, and some of the excellent early country on Capitol Records – which might be a good comparison to the strength of this set. CD features 28 titles in all – and cuts include "You Just Wait & See" by Chuck Guillory, "Turn That Gun Around" by Rocky Morgan, "Those Wonderful Days With You" by Joe Bean, "I Knew That You Were Foolin All Along" by Jimmie Dolan, "Holiday For Guitar" by Jimmy Bryant, "The Honey Jump (part 1)" by Jody Webb, "Operation Blues" by Homer Clemons, "Big Texas #2" by Papa Cairo, "San Antonio Blues" by Cliff Bruner, and "My Heart Lied To Me" by Ted Shelton.

Kent/Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
The start of a wonderful label – the legendary LA imprint Kent Records – home to some excellent soul, blues, and R&B in its early years – plus a handful of rockers, too! The label is one that often worked in budget territory, but had some killer talent – and their early run of recordings finally gets its due here – in a package that features a whopping 48 tracks in all, 30 of which have never been on CD before! Big names are here – like BB King and Etta James – but there's also loads of other lesser-known artists too, who really fill in the space between the cracks – and offer up a very vivid picture of west coast R&B in the immediate pre-soul years. As always with Ace, the presentation and notes are superb – and titles include "You You You" by Van Robinson, "South's Gonna Rise Again" by Jesse James, "Ballad Of Stagger Lee" by the Senders, "The Fool" by BB King, "Sweet Lovin Honey" by Don Cole, "Baby Baby Every Night" by Etta James, "Hey Little Mama" by The Barker Brothers, "Dance The Thing" by Floyd Dixon, "Unlock The Lock" by Jimmy Nelson, "That's My Baby" by Artie Wilson, "Bye Bye Baby" by Chuck Tequila Rio, and "Without You" by Hal Davis.

Herb Alpert & OthersWhipped Cream & Other Delights – Re-Whipped ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1960s/2006. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A surprisingly great take on the Tijuana Brass sound of the 60s – one that offers up new remixes of classics, but which is nicely respectful of the original Herb Albert groove! Unlike other remix projects of this type, which sometimes clutter up the tracks with too many extra bits – or abstract the originals past the point of recognition – this one maintains the sense of space, time, and rhythm that Herb first brought to his work in the 60s, while also updating the tunes with a 21st Century aesthetic. Remixers include Medeski Martin & Wood, Mocean Worker, Thievery Corporation, John King (Dust Brothers), and Anthony Marinelli – and titles include "Whipped Cream", "Taste Of Honey", "Green Peppers", "Bittersweet Samba", "Peanuts", "Love Potion #9", and "Butterball".

Trumpety magic from Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – a record that's known not only for its classic cover of a model dipped in whipped cream, but also for it's tremendously groovy groove! The Tijuana sound is very firmly in place by the time of this set – Mexican-inspired, but compressed down into a sweet little LA groove in that magical A&M way – never too over the top, done in a way that takes a previously-hokey brassy sound, and smoothes it out for the Now Sound generation! Titles include the hit single "Whipped Cream", plus "Taste Of Honey", "Green Peppers", "Bittersweet Samba", "Lemon Tree", "Ladyfingers", and "Butterball". LP, Vinyl record album

The groove here is a bit more heavy on keyboards and beats than before, but the pair still keep things plenty soulful with their positive, upbeat approach to the music – rich, full, and always steeped in soul! The title track, "Solid", is one of the most-remembered tunes from the duo – and other cuts include "Outta The World", "The Jungle", "Honey I Love You", "Babies", "Cherish Forever More", and "Tonight We Escape".

A strange bit of soul from the later years of CTI – and one of the few albums we've ever seen from the enigmatic John Blair! Blair is an artist with a bit of a cosmic vibe – kind of a spacey sense of soul that maybe fits his appearance on the cover – and which is couched here in kind of a flanged-out rock style that's a bit different than some of the other CTI sessions of the time! D avid Matthews handled the arrangements – mixing in a bit of his funk with some fuzzier currents – and the great Googie Coppola joins John on vocals on a number of cuts, using a spacey soul style that's mighty nice. Titles include "Feather Lite & Honey Smooth", "I'm A Wizard", "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", "Moonlight Serenade", "We Belong Together", and "Don't Feel That Way No More". CD

Be! (Germany), 1963. New Copy ... $9.99
Sweet slices of work from a hell of a jazz festival – the 1963 Antibes performances, served up here in some incredibly hip material! The set begins with early work from pianist Dollar Brand – whose trio sounds moody and amazing on "Antibes Jam", then gets joined the great vocalist Sathima Bea Benjamin on a version of "Prelude To A Kiss". Next up is the soulful sound of tenorist Klaus Doldinger, whose group includes Ingfried Hoffmann on piano – on a sensitive reading of "Like Someone In Love", which really shows off Klaus' under-recorded ballad style. The great trombonist Eje Thelin follows – leading a quintet with Ulf Andersson on tenor and Lars Joesten on piano – on the very long "Antibes Jam". A Polish group follows with another long track – a sharp-edged take on "Well You Needn't", led by tenorist Jan Wroblewski in a quartet with Wojciech Karolak on piano. Last up is singer Sarah Vaughan – working with the Kirk Stewart Trio – on the titles "I Can't Give You Anything But Love", "Tenderly", "A Taste Of Honey", and "Bill Bailey". CD

BrickGood High/Brick (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Bang/Robinsongs (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99
Two funky soul classics from Brick – back to back on a single CD! First up is the album Good High – a killer debut from Brick – the start of a massive run at the end of the 70s, a time when the group was easily one of the biggest acts to come out of the up-and-coming Atlanta scene! Like some other Atlanta acts of the time, Brick had a way of fusing older funky soul on a tighter modern groove – coming up with a sound that was nice and lean – perfect for these key transitional years of funk – with influences that were felt for years, in places as far away as the west coast! Case in point is the album's classic "Dazz" – one of those cuts that never gets old – nestled nicely in a lineup that also includes "Music Matic", "Here We Come", "Good High", "Brick City", and "Sister Twister". Includes two bonus tracks "Dazz (Dazz Disco mix)" & "That's What It's All About (single version)". Next up is the self-titled Brick – which has the group absolutely killing it with this self-titled second album! Brick has a feel that would be taken up heavily a few years later by LA funk combos – particularly those on the Solar label – and their style of slicking up funky licks into a tightly compressed sound was obviously a big hit with the kids of their generation. Includes the sample classic "Dusic", plus "Living From The Mind", "Happy", "Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody", "Honey Chile", Fun", "Hello" and more. This CD edition on Wounded Bird has 2 bonus tracks: "Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody (Single Version)" and "Dusic (Short Version)". CD

Dennis Brown was well established as a leading Lovers Rock and Jamaican soul singer by the time he cut this excellent roots effort for Joe Gibbs in the mid 70s, and the transformation is noteworthy. Brown's vocals pair wonderfully with Gibbs' heavy roots rhythms for a combination that's among either man's finest work! 10 excellent tracks in all, including "Deliverance Will Come", "Love Me Always", "Concrete Castle King", "Malcolm X", "Repatriation", "Milk & Honey" and "Stay At Home".

De-Lite/Solid (Japan), 1981/1984. New Copy ... $22.99
A pair of great records from Leon Bryant – both from the late De-Lite Records years, and offered up here back to back! First up is Mighty Body – a set also known as the self-titled Leon Bryant album – overlooked genius from Leon – a singer with a hell of a voice, and a range that can go from very low to super-soaring at the drop of a hat! And fortunately, that style works great here for the later De-Lite Records approach – funky club at its best, with grooves that are already great before Bryant steps into the mix – then find a special sort of magic, thanks to Leon's voice! There's also a good mix of balance, here – as the upbeat groovers are blended with some nice midtempo cuts, and one great stepper too. Titles include "Something More", "Come & Get It", "Just The Way You Like It", and "You Can Depend On Me". Next up is Finders Keepers, a record that would have been huge, had it gotten the kind of mainstream placement it deserved – which would have let the world hear what a great singer Leon Bryant could be! The set's got some top-shelf arrangements from Jimmy Mack and Sonny Sanders – both of whom are sliding perfectly into an 80s soul groove here, but still with all the hipper indie touches of the early years – which means that the whole thing perfectly avoids cliche or commercialism, while also giving Bryant the right sort of sophisticated vibe that works well with the depth of his voice. The range is almost one that we'd rank right up there with DJ Rogers – although with less of the spiritual vibe – and titles include "Are You Ready", "Honey", "Finders Keepers", "Your Kind Of Lovin", and "I Can See Me Loving You". CD also features the bonus track "Mighty Body (original 12" version)". CD

Tim BuckleySefronia (180 gram pressing) ... LP
DiscReet/Real Gone, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
A great later album from Tim Buckley – one that really shows him evolving his style in the last few years before his tragic early departure from this planet! Tim's working in a style here that's oddly heavier and with more bluesy overtones than some of his classic 60s albums for Elektra – almost reaching for a stronger style that competes with other singer-songwriters who were beating his action at the time! We're not saying that the album's slick or overly commercial – just recorded with a fuller sound, and less of the light jazz-tinged folk styles used in earlier years. A few of the tunes are done in the older Buckley mode, but others have strings, backing vocals, and other larger arrangements. Titles include "Quicksand", "I Know I'd Recognize Your Face", "Martha", "Peanut Man", "Dolphins", "Honey Man", "Because Of You", and "Sefronia – The King's Chain". LP, Vinyl record album

A stellar bit of boogie from Con Funk Shun – produced to perfection by Skip Scarborough, and done in a style that has lots of jazzy elements! The album was recorded well into the group's time on the Mercury label, but it's a real standout from the rest – thanks to an extremely well-written batch of tunes, and a mode of bass-heavy funk that avoids the cliches of other groups at the time – and goes for a more laidback style that sounds especially nice on the mellower numbers. Michael Cooper's great on lead vocals – and titles include "By Your Side", "Early Morning Sunshine", "Curtain Call", "Happy Face", "Juicy", "Lovestruck 1980", and "Honey Wild".

✨✧ Elvis CostelloAlmost Blue ... LP
Columbia, 1981. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Elvis Costello's early 80s foray into 60s Nashville and otherwise country-indebted songbooks – and it's a nice one! Even on his tighter, blistering punk era records, Elvis demonstrated not only the voice, but a great ear for the roots and soul that came before him. He showed some soul love quite profoundly a year-or-so earlier on the Get Happy album, and here he works in a similarly respectful mode for classic country, countrypolitan and even a little bit of honky tonk. Produced by Billy Sherrill – who was absolutely essential in the country crossover sound of the 60s and 70s. It's a bit overlooked, but we love this record! Includes "Why Don't You Love Me (Lie You Used To Do)", "I'm Your Toy", "Tonight The Bottle Let Me Down", "Sittin' And Thinkin'", "Honey Hush", "How Much I Lied" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ DelegationPromise Of Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
State/Big Break (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
The classic first album from Delegation – a great male soul trio from the late 70s, and one who sound great on both sweet mellow tunes and more upbeat ones! Delegation have a sound that's quite unique, especially on this album – a groove with slightly tropical traces on some numbers, and a way of putting over a tune that borrows a bit from the earlier east coast harmony scene, but which wraps things up in a completely different style of production. The balance is hard to describe accurately, but it's definitely a standout for the time – and a real maturation of an earlier male soul group mode. Titles here include the famous break track "Oh Honey", plus "The Promise Of Love", "Mr Heartbreak", "Where Is The Love", "Soul Trippin", and "Let Me Take You To The Sun". CD features new mastering – and bonus tracks – including "Love Is Like A Fire", "Honey I'm Rich", "Baby You're My Mystery", "Oh Honey (12" mix)", and "It Only Happens When I Look At You". CD

Paul DesmondGlad To Be Unhappy (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA (UK), 1965. New Copy ... $8.99 11.99
Hard to be unhappy in a setting like this – a classic RCA session from the 60s, and one that matches the sublime icy alto sax of Paul Desmond with the perfectly airy guitar of the great Jim Hall! The pair work simple wonders with familiar tunes on the set – bringing together a love of the understated, mixed with a desire to delight and surprise – a quality that plays out wonderfully throughout the course of the record, and keeps us hanging with a sense of joy and delight. The group's completed by bass and drums – with no piano for rhythm, leaving the guitar and alto suspended in mid-air – and titles include "Any Other Time", "Glad To Be Unhappy", "Poor Butterfly", "Stranger In Town", and "Taste Of Honey". CD also features three bonus tracks – "All Across The City", "All Through The Night", and "By The River Sainte Marie". CD

Jukka Eskola Soul TrioJukka Eskola Soul Trio ... CD
Timmion (Finland), 2017. New Copy ... $14.99
A fantastic full length set from trumpeter Jukka Eskola and his Soul Trio – a combo with a strange sort of name! The group here is actually a sextet – as the core combo gets guest help from Timo Lassy on saxes, Magnus Lindgren on flute, and Ville Herrala on bass – who really expand the trio's wonderful groove – a mode that's partly soul jazz, but with very rich flavors of its own – hardly any sort of easy copycat of old American modes! Teppo Makynen – aka Teddy Rok – plays drums, alongside Mikko Helava on organ – and while the album shows all the respect for soulful jazz traditions that we've heard in previous music from Rok, Eskola, and Lassy – the sound is also very different, fresh, and quite original! Titles include "Hong Thong", "Railyard Boogie", "Subterranean Variations", "For Anne Lee", "Sweet Honey Bee", "Introducing The Trio", "Soft Drop", and "Jumpin Punkins". CD

Blind Boy FullerTruckin My Blues Away ... CD
Yazoo, Late 30s. Used ... $8.99
A great little record from Yazoo – almost worth the price alone for the great Robert Crumb cover art – but a real treasure considering the vintage recordings by Blind Boy Fuller underneath! The set brings together Fuller recordings from the years 1936 to 1939 – surprisingly well-recorded, and presented on this long player with sound that is nice and clean – a clarity that really lets you hear Blind Boy's wonderfully vibrant work on guitar, matched by his rich, well-crafted vocals – sung in a style that occasionally hints at later sounds that other artists wouldn't touch for another decade or two. Titles include "I Crave My Pigmeat", "Meat Shakin Woman", "Weeping Willow", "Sweet Honey Hole", "Jivin Woman Blues", "Untrue Blues", "Homesick & Lonesome Blues", "Mamie", and "You Never Can Tell".
