Golden DawnPower Plant ... LP
International Artists, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the grooviest albums on the legendary International Artists label – a set that's as psychedelic and experimental as most of the others in the imprint, but also pretty darn tuneful as well! Golden Dawn have a nicely stretched-out approach to their music – one that lets the songs build up slowly, then really pack a punch as their catchier hooks come into play. There's a bit of a late 60s SF rock quality to the record – especially when the vocals get a bit wild – and the guitars ring out nicely with a great rough-edged sound. Titles include "Starvation", "This Way Please", "Evolution", "My Time", "A Nice Surprise", "Tell Me Why", "Reaching Out To You", and "Seeing Is Believing". LP, Vinyl record album

Lost & FoundLost & Found (aka Everybody's Here) ... LP
International Artists, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A brilliant set on the legendary International Artists label – a very Love-like record that's filled with colorful tunes – from Houston's Lost & Find, who fit in beautifully with other Texas psyche pioneers of the mid-to-late 60s! Both the vocals and the overall timing of the tunes clearly draw strong inspiration from Love's first few Elektra albums – but that's not a problem for us, because we love that stuff, and really appreciate Lost & Found's take on Arthur Lee's inspiration – one that pushes it a bit into the trippier Texas style psyche and others from the International Artists Roster. Titles include "Everybody's Here", "Forever Lasting Plastic Words","Zig Zag Blues", "I'm So Hip To Pain", "I Realize", "2 Stroke Blues", "Let Me Be" and "Living Eye". LP, Vinyl record album

Red CrayolaParable Of Arable Land ... LP
International Artists, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Classic first album of avant noise and psych from the Texas underground, featuring seminal early work by Mayo Thompson, and a mind-blasting set of tracks that mixes straight songs with the group's trademark "free form freak outs". Essential to anyone with even the slightest affinity for the true psychedelic 60s – and especially so for true lovers of the influential psych forbears! Titles of the songs include "Hurricane Fighter Plane", "Transparent Radition" (an all-time classic), "War Sucks", "Former Reflections Enduring Doubt", and "Pink Stainless Tail" – and each track is separated by a freakout!

13th Floor ElevatorsEaster Everywhere (180 gram pressing) ... LP
International Artists, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
Raw early genius from the 13th Floor Elevators – cut back at a time when the Texas combo were one of the hippest things going in the late 60s American underground! There's lots of sounds here that other cats would copy over the decades – but the record has a gritty brilliance that's way better than any of its many imitators – that kind of unique burst of new ideas and young energy that made psych so wonderful when it first emerged in remarkable moments like this! Roky Erickson is wonderful – and the record will definitely illustrate his genius way better than any later efforts to bear his own name in the lead – and the production is just the right blend of studio tricks and homegrown oddness to make the whole thing electrified throughout. Tracks include "Slip Inside This House", "Slide Machine", "Dust", "Earthquake", "Levitation", "Postures", "Baby Blue", and "Nobody To Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bubble PuppyGathering Of Promises ... LP
International Artists, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The lone album from the Bubble Puppy – a monumental effort of late 60s hard grooving psychedelia – and one of very best albums to come out of the original Texas psych scene! A couple of the Pup's labelmates at United Artists get a lot of revelry all these years later, and rightfully so – who would argue the importance of The Red Krayola and 13th Floor Elevators – but Bubbly Puppy deserve to be on that top shelf, too. The sound is tight and hard hitting, with trippy lyricism and groovy group harmonies, while the guitars range from cathartic fuzz to some surprisingly pretty melodicism. Not as far out as some of their peers, but the groove is absolutely killer. Titles include the benchmark single "Hot Smoke And Sasafrass", plus "Todd's Tune", "I've Got To Reach You", "Lonely", "Hurry Sundown", "Elizabeth", "It's Safe To Say", "Beginning" and much more.

A mighty nice book on the 1967 Monterey International Pop Festival – a key precursor to Woodstock, and an important California music moment during the Summer Of Love! The book is huge, and filled with photos and other images – almost working as a printed documentary on the famous weekend of music – along with recollections of musicians who were involved with the even – a list of dozens that includes Pete Townshend, Roger Daltry, Bob Weir, Al Kooper, Booker T Jones, Steve Cropper, and many others!

✨✧ Miles Davis & Tadd DameronMiles Davis/Tadd Dameron Quintet In Paris Festival International De Jazz May 1949 (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1949. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A rare early side of Miles Davis – recorded in postwar Paris in the company of Tadd Dameron! The group's a quintet – with Miles on trumpet and Tadd on piano – and although the overall vibe certainly shows a lot of bop generation spirit, there's also a strong indication of the deeper ideas that were already becoming a part of both artists' music. The group features some excellent work on tenor from James Moody – plus bass from Barney Spieler and drums from Kenny Clarke. Tunes include a fair bit of familiar numbers from the Charlie Parker camp – and titles include "Rifftide", "Good Bait", "Don't Blame Me", "Lady Bird", "Wah Hoo", "Allen's Alley", "Embraceable You", "Ornithology" and "All The Things You Are".

✨✧ VariousSources – The DJ International Records Anthology – Compiled By Bill Brewster ... CD
Harmless (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A set that's very near and dear to our hearts – given that the DJ International label was a huge force here on the Chicago scene during the 80s! The label was second only to Trax Records as a proving ground for so many new ideas in house music – a crucial indie who helped give many artists their start, and managed to get their music to much wider audiences around the globe! While Trax might have been first by a few beats, DJ international stepped forward with a much more professional approach – really focusing on some key stars in the growing house scene, and even working in album formats as well as the sort of singles that seemed to crop up every week during the 80s. This 3CD package is very well done – selected and annotated by dancefloor scholar Bill Brewster – with 35 cuts that include "Move" by Farm Boy, "Like This" by Chip E, "Shadows Of Your Love (original fierce club)" by JM Silk, "The It (Hardy club mix)" by Donnie, "Turn Up The Bass" by Tyree with Kool Rock Steady, "Check Out The Hook (dangerous DJ club)" by 2 Young Brothers, "Communicate (AT&T club)" by Full House, "Let's Go Don't U Want Some More" by Fast Eddie, "Don't Wanna Go (Mike Dunn voc club)" by Sterling Void, "Work On Me (99th Street piano club)" by Frankie Hollywood Rodriguez, "Acid Thunder (fast thunder club)" by Fast Eddie, "Freedom (Factory club)" by the Children, "House Music Is My Life (deep house club rmx)" by Tyree, "The Promised Land" by Joe Smooth, "It's U" by Farley Jackmaster Funk & Ricky Dillard, "Choice Of A New Generation (deep underground club)" by Rocky Jones, and "Only The Strong Survive" by Frankie Knuckles.

Benjamin BiolayLa Superbe ... CD
Naive (France), 2011. Used 2CD ... $7.99
Definitely superb work from Benjamin Biolay – the kind of instantly seductive sounds that have made him one of the most compelling French artists since the Serge Gainsbourg generation! This double-length set really has Biolay taking off from his earlier EMI recordings – at some points moving towards even more focused tunes that are bound to grab him more international appeal, yet at others using the extra space of the record to work on some of his beautifully rich soundscapes – the kind of tunes we love from Benjamin's few spots of film work. Titles include "15 Aout", "Padam", "Miss Catastrophe", "L'Espoir Fait Vivre", "Rate", "Buenos Aires", "Jaloux De Tout", and "Melancolique". CD

Jean CarneCollaborations ... CD
Expansion (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $14.99
Smooth modern duets from one of our favorite ladies in soul music! Jean Carne's a heck of a singer – with a career that stretches back to early soul jazz recordings with (then) husband Doug Carn, to solo recordings on Philly International in the late 70s, to appearances on records by other artists – sessions from the 70s, 80s, and 90s in which Jean lent her vocals to a wealth of great recordings! This great collection focuses on work in that category – uncollected sides from a three decade period, brought together in one album that shows just how great Jean can sound when she's singing with other artists. Many of these titles are quite hard to find otherwise, and haven't even shown up on other collections of Jean's work – and tracks include "Good Thng Goin On" with Billy Paul, "Holdin On" and "Dreams Of Tomorrow" with Dexter Wansel, "Keep In Touch" and "The Look Of Love" with Grover Washington Jr, "Lean On Me" with Nathan Heathman, "If You Don't Know Me By Now" with The Temptations, "Love Is Beautiful" with Universe, "Star Flower" with Lonnie Liston Smith, "Let's Stay Together" with Bobby M, "I'm Back For More" with Al Johnson, "You Might Be Surprised" with Roy Ayers, "Mother Of The Future" with Norman Connors, and "Valentine Love" with Michael Henderson. Also features the bonus solo track "Trust Me" – never on CD before! CD

Julius Hemphill (Mbari)Dogon AD (2LP 200 gram pressing – with bonus track) ... LP
International Phonograph, 1972/1977. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $51.99 62.98
A seminal session from the St Louis scene of the early 70s – one that was humming nearly as much as Chicago was with the AACM at the time! As with the larger organization in the Windy City, St Louis had the Black Artists Group – of which Julius Hemphill was a key member, forming fresh new ideas in improvisatory jazz with players who went onto have an undeniable impact on the global scene as well. This album's one of the standout recordings of the Black Artists era at its best – a record produced by Hemphill, but equally balanced between his own alto and flute, the trumpet of Baikida Carroll, cello of Abdul Wadud, and drums of Phillip Wilson – plus a bit of added baritone from Haimet Bluiett. The rhythms are quite open, but there's also a nice sense of structure to the record too – a bridge between spiritual and free jazz that prefaces the impact that both Hemphill and Bluiett would have on the New York loft jazz generation. Titles include "Dogon AD", "Rites", and "The Painter". LP, Vinyl record album
(2LP pressing – remastered from the original tapes and sounding better than ever – and pressed on 200 gram vinyl!)

Ivan LinsAwa Yio ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1991. New Copy ... $9.99
A record cut at a time when Brazilian singer Ivan Lins was enjoying a great wave of international fame – a moment that resulted in music that almost had him reaching out as a majestic singer, able to inspire the whole world at once, rather than just the mainstream audiences back home in Brazil! The set's got this quality that's very positive and uplifting – almost as if Lins is borrowing a bit from the production and arrangements that Milton Nascimento was using, but giving it a more personal twist with his excellent songwriting. And the whole thing's tight, but never slick – that careful balance that Brazilian artists could always reach, at a time when American singers would always sound too clunkily commercial. Ivan's voice is wonderful throughout – able to communicate volumes, even if you can't understand his language – and titles include "Pontas Cardeias", "Leva E Traz", "Clareou", "Awa Yio", and "Cru Cre Corroro".

Moving SidewalksFlash (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Tantara/Comet (Italy), 1968. Used ... $12.99
Fuzzy psyche from the Texas scene of the late 60s – the only album ever from Moving Sidewalks, a great little group that features a pre-ZZ Top Billy Gibbons on vocals! The album's got just as much grit as other Texas underground sets from the tome – such as work on the International Artists label – and the instrumentation's especially searing, a beautifully wrapped-up blend of tight drums, brooding bass, heady organ, and Gibbons' fuzzy guitar! Titles include "Flashback", "Scoun Da Be", "You Make Me Shake", "No Good To Cry", "Crimson Witch", "Eclipse", and "Pluto Sept 31st". Features bonus tracks too – "99th Floor", "What Are You Going To Do", "I Want To Hold Your Hand", "Need Me", and "Every Night A New Surprise". CD

People's ChoiceTurn Me Loose (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the crowning achievements of People's Choice – a very hip group on the Philly scene, but one who spent most of their early years just releasing excellent (but under-circulated) 7" singles! By the time they arrived at the Philadelphia International label, the group was razor-sharp, and right at the top of their game – schooled in funk and soul, and almost more self-contained than some of the other artists who worked with Gamble & Huff! The set was recorded at Sigma Sound, but has a leaner sound than some of the disco productions of the time – more funky soul, turned towards a 70s club mode – with excellent vocals from Valerie Brown, who shares lead spotlight with longtime group member Frankie Brunson. Titles include the nice mellow stepper "Soft & Tender", plus "Rough Ride", "Stay With Me", "A Greater Truth", "Your Love Stays On My Mind", and "Turn Me Loose". CD features bonus tracks – "Turn Me Loose (12" disco version)", "Rough Ride (single)", and "Turn Me Loose (single)". CD

Mary WellsIn & Out Of Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/Reel Music, 1981. New Copy ... $5.99 12.99
Mary Wells has come a long way from Motown by the time of this sweet early 80s set – really changing up her style to go for a mature, sophisticated groove – that best side of modern soul at the time, put together with superb production by the great Greg Perry! The sound is warm, and plenty darn groovy – a mode that's almost in the same style that some of the hippest Philly International artists were hitting at the same point – really refining their sound, but still holding onto the best soulful elements of years before! But there's still a nice Detroit legacy going on too – that undercurrent of Motown togetherness that you might find in later work by Lamont Dozier – no surprise, since McKinley Jackson's helping Perry arrange the rhythms on the record. Titles include the great groover "These Arms", plus "Spend The Nights With Me", "You Make Me Feel So Good Inside", "Gigolo", "I'm Changing My Ways", and "I'm Not The One". Beautiful Reel Music reissue, too – loads of detailed notes – and bonus tracks that include 12" versions of "Gigolo" and "These Arms". CD

(UK), 1970s/Early 80s. Used ... $8.99
Seductive soul galore – a great little set that starts in the southern soul years of the early 70s, then moves up through some great Philly modern at the end! The package brings together work from a few different labels – mostly Hi Records, Chi-Sound, and Philly International – and the range of artists is tied together nicely by a set of song styles that adhere to the mellow, sexy modes promised in the title! Titles include "I Choose You" by Paris, "Especially For You" by Manchild, "Eternally" by The Jones Girls, "It's Cool" by Walter Jackson, "Don't Let It Go To Your Head" by Jean Carn, "The Sweetest Pain" by Dexter Wansel, "What Cha Tryin To Do" by Margie Alexander, "The Whole Town's Laughing At Me" by Teddy Pendergrass, "I Can't Stand The Rain" by Ann Peebles, "Just As Long As I Know You're Mine" by Dee Dee Sharp Gamble, "Brandy" by The O'Jays, and "I'm Still In Love With You" by Al Green.

VariousDouble Shot Of Soul – Funky Los Angeles Soul From The Vaults Of The Double Shot & Whiz Labels 1967 – 70 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Lost soul from a massively overlooked source – the mighty LA indie Double Shot Records, best known for their fuzzy rock classics, but also a hotbed of tripped-out soul! Given that Double Shot's 2 biggest artists of the late 60s were Count Five ("Psychotic Reaction") and Brenton Wood ("Oogum Boogum Song"), you can imagine that the label would be equally well suited to handle mod 60s guitars and sweet soul vocals – and on most of the tracks on this set, you'll be hearing them at the same time! The set's a really massive batch of tunes – a wonderful discovery to our ears, as we'd only ever heard the odd rare single on the label, and had no idea that there was so much great work – nor that it would sound so great! The CD features a total of 26 tracks in all, pulled from the Double Shot singles of the late 60s – with tracks that include "Push Me Baby" and "Jelly" by The Bagdads, "What Is Soul" and "The International Love Song" by The Real Thing, "Four Piece Funky Nitty Gritty Junky Band" and "Everybody's Got A Hang Up" by Bobby Freeman, "Gotta Keep Talkin" and "Coming In Out Of The Rain" by Maurice Rodgers, "The Neck" and "Trouble" by Kent & The Candidates, "Sugar Sugar" by Shirley, and "Trouble" by Foxy.

VariousGussie Clarke – From The Foundation (2CDs/DVD) ... CD
VP, Used 2CD & DVD ... $9.99
Classic work from Jamaican producer Gussie Clarke – a talent who's still going strong after changing the face of reggae for decades – starting out with the flurry of work featured on this set! Clarke's productions were already bubbling under in the early 70s, but definitely came into their own during the roots generation – a stretch that saw Gussie's work in the studio hit great fame on UK shores, and reach a fairly bit international audience here too. Clare's mode is an easygoing one – still with some of the emphasis on bottom sounds that was prevalent in Jamaican music during the period, but also maybe more of a spontaneous presentation of the artists too – as if Gussie was stepping back a few steps, at least in comparison to other Jamaican producers. As the 80s moved on, Clarke also helped lay the groundwork for some of the new sounds of the digital generation – evolving his style a bit, but still allowing the artists the main focus. The result is some excellent work by a range of key talents – including a few variations on some of Clark's bigger cuts – all wrapped up in one overstuffed package! Titles include "Pride & Ambition" by Leroy Smart, "The King & The Pauper" by I Roy, "Loving Pauper" by Gregory Isaacs, "The Higher The Mountain" by U Roy & Big Youth, "To The Foundation" by Dennis Brown & Lennie Hibbert, "Party Time" by Lenny Hibbert, "Pass The Kouchie" by The Mighty Diamonds, "Raggamuffin" by Freddie McGregor & Dennis Brown, and "Pirates' Anthem" by Home T, Cocoa Tea, & Shabba Ranks – and three versions of "Strickly Rockers" – by Augustus Pablo, Big Youth, and both of them together! 2CD set features 34 tracks in all – plus a bonus DVD documentary on Gussie Clarke – From The Foundation!

The British scene of the 60s was filled with some tremendous work from a huge range of female artists – not just the bigger international names, like Lulu or Petula Clark, but also a host of even cooler, even groovier gals – like the artists collected on this set! There's a special sound to UK girl pop of the time – often a strong influence from soul music, which makes for some excellent rhythms throughout – that mod love of American R&B, moved into some even hipper territory during the beat years that span most of this collection. And amongst British labels, Decca was maybe the one with its ear most to the ground – able to pick up some great overlooked talents and get them onto singles, even if they never cut a full album – with a continued legacy of tracks that could even cross over to the Northern Soul scene at times. This package serves up a stunning array of these Decca label gems – with titles that include "Hey Boy" by Barry St John, "Little Boy" by Goldie & The Gingerbreads, "Poor Old Johnny" by Twinkle, "Love Hit Me" by The Orchids, "I'm In Love With You" by Billie Davis, "No No No" by Dana Gillespie, "That's Right Baby" by Marianne Faithful, "Where The Good Times Are" by Beverley, "Something Beautiful" by Adrienne Poster, "I Wanna Go Back There Again" by Truly Smith, "I'll Come Running Over" by Lulu, and "I Stand Accused Of Loving You" by The Satin Bells. 24 tracks in all.

Fab Philadelphia soul on 4 CDs – a massive package of work that really serves up the best from the legendary empire of Gamble & Huff, plus a host of other great Philly numbers too! The package is a great look at the full spectrum of sound in Philly during the 70s – not just the key tracks on the Philadelphia International label, but also cuts that Gamble & Huff had produced for other artists at the end of the 60s, key Sigma Sound sessions for other labels, and some of the classic club tracks that crossed over big and inspired countless imitations! The set is immense – 4CDs, 71 songs, and a 64 page booklet of rare photos and new essays – all priced nicely enough to appeal to both Philly newcomers and longtime collectors. Plus, since Sony BMG's handling Philly International now, there's a good range of titles from a variety of labels – and titles include "Love Is Here" by The Futures, "Slow Motion (part 1)" by Johnny Williams, "Sunshine" by The O'Jays, "Don't Let The Green Grass Fool You" by Wilson Pickett, "Expressway To Your Heart" by Soul Survivors, "I'm Stone In Love With You" by The Stylistics, "Be Thankful For What You Got (part 1)" by William DeVaughan, "Dirty Ol Man" by Three Degrees, "It's Forever" by The Ebonys, "Enjoy Yourself" by The Jacksons, "Free Love" by Jean Carn, "Kiss & Say Goodbye" by The Manhattans, "Let's Groove" by Archie Bell, "Billy's Back Home" by Billy Paul, "Picture Us" by Bunny Sigler, "Then Came You" by The Spinners, "Close The Door" by Teddy Pendergrass, "It's Gonna Take A Miracle" by Deniece Williams, and "See You When I Get There" by Lou Rawls.

Soul Jazz (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
Not the usual Nigerian funk collection you might expect – as the music here is from the years before Fela Kuti and other artists exploded onto international 70s fame – and instead, come from a time where the Nigerian scene was busy drinking up influences from a range of other cultures too! As a result, there's a fair bit of Latin and Caribbean elements at play – a bit of that Cuban influence that touched West African music so strongly in the 60s, and other post-colonial elements too – all mixed with regional styles that provide a very particular flavor – on tracks that are heavy on rhythms, jazzy inflections, and lots of great work on electric guitar and horns! The package is the first we've really seen to give this period its due – and the set is presented with the usual stunning Soul Jazz Approach – very detailed notes, and a superb track list that includes "Ariwo" by Chris Ajilo & His Cubanos, "Lumumba Calypso" by EC Arinze, "Save For A Rainy Day" by Sammy Akpabot & His All Stars, "You Cheat Me" by Godwin Omobuwa & His Soundmakers, "Omo Alara" by IK Dairo & His Blue Spots, "Owo Ni Fari" by Heavy Haruna Ishola & His Group, "Cool Cats Invitation" by Victor Ola-Lya & His Cool Cats, and "Baby I Tire" by Charles Iwegbue & His Archibogs.

One of the best collections of music from Mali that we've ever heard – and a set that nicely gets past some of the overdone cliches of that scene, to really focus on the kind of overlooked 70s gems that showcase sides of the music that are funky, jazzy, and plenty soulful throughout! There's a fast-flowing vibe here that's linked a lot more closely to Nigerian sounds of the 70s than you might expect – music that's different than some of the bluer tones of bigger Malian artists that get more global exposure – and which showcase a huge explosion of sounds during one of the nation's most fervent cultural moments! The focuses on music that's upbeat, righteous, and plenty positive – work from some of the best groups on the scene of the time, who were urging each other on to find newly joyous means of expression. Titles include "Fama Allah" by Idrissa Soumaoro Et L'Eclipse De L'Ija, "Fadinga Kouma" by Zani Diabate Et Let Super Djata Band, "Komangi Bela" by Alou Vane & Daouda Sangare, "Mandjou" by Salif Keita & Ambassadeurs International, "Moudilo" by Rail BAnd, "Mangan" by Super Tentemba Jazz, "Yayoroba" by Sory Bamba, "Worodara" by Super Djata BAnd, "M'Bouram Mousso" by Les Ambassadeurs Du Motel De Bamako, and "Nissodia" by Idrissa Soumaoro Et L'Eclipse De L'Ija.

VariousSounds Of Silence – The Most Intriguing Silences In Recording History ... LP
Alga Marghen (France), 1960s/1970s. New Copy Gatefold ... $28.99
The quietest record you'll ever own – because there's no sounds at all pressed on the disc! The collection is a stunning celebration of the use of silence in records – and features selections by artists from a surprisingly wide range of styles – all of whom create pieces of silence to use alongside more sonically stimulating material – often with some sort of social comment in the practice! Yet despite the lack of any sound at all, the record is faithfully banded to show the duration of each number – and an extended listen produces a John Cage-like contemplation of nothingness that's surprisingly compelling – especially when it comes in a package as attractive as this. Titles include "Silence" by Robert Wyatt, "There's A Riot Going On" by Sly & The Family Stone, "Nutopian International Anthem" by John Lennon, "The Sound Of Free Speech" by Crass, "Silence" by Ciccone Youth, "Disco Party (part 2)" by Son Of Pete, "Silence (Copyright 1932)" by Andy Warhol, "Anniversary Of World War III" by West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, "9-11-01" by Soulfly, and "The Ballad Of Richard Nixon" by John Denver.

Vanessa is the cousin of Phyllis Hyman, and definitely has an influence from that side of the spectrum – but we also hear echoes of some of the Philly International work of Jean Carn, and maybe even The Jones Girls in the way the tunes are put together. The production and instrumentation is great – very classic overall, as is the structure of the songs – and titles include "Shake It Up Tonight", "I'm Not Waiting", "I'm In Love Again", "Someday We'll All Be Free", "No One Can Love You More Than I", "I'm Hurtin Deep Down Inside", and "When You Coming Home".

Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Get ready to throw away your jukebox – because this tasty set has all the grooves you'd ever want, all packed in one tasty CD! The sound of Mod Jazz is the sound of the 60s – a blistering blend of Hammond organ, soulful vocals, swinging rhythms, and a finger-snapping assortment of various instrumental modes – all brought together from unlikely sources into one hip-stepping, bad-walking collection! As with previous volumes, the set list here is really outta sight – and blends together a few familiar numbers with overlooked gems from rare singles and obscure LPs – many by artists that we know and love, but who we didn't know could cook up a groove this nicely. There's a real speaker-blowing quality to the whole thing, too – the kind of soulful, thumping styles that would have made this CD feel right at home in a southside jazz lounge back in the day! 24 tracks in all – with titles that include "Beaver" by Clarence Armstrong, "Banana Peels" by Johnny Otis, "Hide Out" by The Hideaways, "Bell Bottoms" by Joe Swift's Internationals, "East Side" by Hank Jacobs, "Have Some Boogaloo" by Timmy Thomas, "El Pussy Cat" by Mongo Santamaria, "Summertime" by George Benson Quartet, "Sack O Woe" by Ray Bryant, "Them Blues" by Billie Poole, "Sweet Lover No More" by Gene McDaniels, "Wild Bird" by Googie Rene, and "Get It" by The Swinging Tomatoes.
