Lou RawlsAll Things In Time ... CD
Philadelphia International/Intermusic (Spain), 1976. New Copy ... About December 15, 2017 (delayed)
A killer – and one of our favorite Philly International albums ever! This is the album that broke Lou Rawls back into the mainstream for the smooth 70s – retuning his incredible voice with waves of soul and strings in the Gamble & Huff tradition – and giving him a whole new voice than on his Capitol recordings! The album will forever be remembered for the seminal single "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine" – but it's filled with other great bits, including"Groovy People", a wonderful jazzy groover, and "You're The One", and "Lets Fall In Love All Over Again".

✨✧ Lou RawlsUnmistakably Lou ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1977. Very Good ... $0.99
One of the greatest records ever by Lou Rawls – if only for one cut! That's the amazing "See You When I Get There", which starts with a Fender Rhodes riff over a hard thumping beat – while Lou does this little monologue about calling his woman at home. Then strings sweep in, the groove gets harder, and Lou sings a great song about the pride of being a middle class guy with a great home to come home to! Many other tracks are a bit more mellow – and titles include "It's Our Anniversary Today", "Some Folks Never Learn", and the wonderful two-stepper "Some Day You'll Be Old". LP, Vinyl record album

Lou RawlsYour Good Thing ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Another one of the really good Lou Rawls albums from the late 60's. David Axelrod produced, and the drums are nice and hard, especially on "I Can't Make It Alone", which he arranged. Other tracks include "Give Me Your Love" (not the Curtis Mayfield song), "When She Speaks", and "Your Good Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

Lou RawlsYou've Made Me So Very Happy ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
All the best elements for Lou's Capitol work are in place – arrangements by HB Barnum, production by David Axelrod, and a hip batch of pop tracks that really push Lou into a whole new dimension! Axelrod really knows how to bring up the bass in the arrangements, and create just the right amount of space for Lou to open up his fantastic voice on cuts like the amazing title track, "Let's Burn Down The Cornfield", "Hurtin", "Will Someone Carry The Ball", "Yesterday's Dreams", "When Someone Comes Along", and "How Can That Be".

✨✧ Cannonball Adderley with Nancy Wilson & Lou RawlsIn Person ... LP
Capitol, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Almost everything soulful at Capitol Records in the mid 60s – packed together in one sweet little place! The set's a winner in a great line of Cannonball Adderley live dates from the time – produced by David Axelrod, and done with that great mix of angular, slightly electric groove the combo was virtually pioneering – thanks to help from Joe Zawinul on electric piano, and Nat Adderley on cornet! Cannon also plays some great soprano sax – an instrument that he was taking off beautifully with at the time – and sets fire to a few great tunes with the instrument. But as if that's not enough, Lou Rawls joins in on vocals on a few cuts, and Nancy Wilson comes in on a few more – and the album alternates singing with instrumentals in a really great way. Titles include two very nice extended tracks by Joe Zawinul – "Rumplestiltskin" and "The Scavenger", both of which are over 10 minutes long, and which have the group stretching out in a nice live vein – and other cuts include "The Scene", "Somewhere", "Sweet Emma", and "Zorba".

✨✧ Lou Rawls with Les McCann LtdStormy Monday ... LP
Capitol, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Lou's most jazz-oriented albums – featuring backing by Les McCann's famous trio with Leroy Vinnegar and Ron Jefferson, perfectly suited to Lou's soulful renditions of the tunes on the album. Most of the numbers are bluesy ones, but as usual, Lou manages to give them his own hip twist – always a pleasure for us! Titles include "In The Evening", "Sweet Lover", "Willow Weep For Me", "Stormy Monday", and "'Tain't Nobody's Biz-ness If I Do". LP, Vinyl record album

Ernie AndrewsSoul Proprietor ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A great little set from Ernie Andrews – sounding quite different than on most of his other work! Although Ernie's best known as a jazz vocalist, he steps out here in a mode that's got a heck of a lot of 60s soul – working with arrangements by Shorty Rogers in a style that's got plenty of the same feel as Lou Rawls' best work at Capitol from the same time. The tunes are all nice and jaunty, grooving along with a hip and well-punctuated approach to the material that brings in plenty of light funk – and titles include "Crackerbox Livin", "More Than Ever Before", "Charms Of The Arms Of Love", "Knock On Wood", "Walk Tall", "Go To Hell", and "You Can Make It Baby".

Pilgrim TravelersGospel Boogie – Rare Recordings 1946 to 1957 ... CD
Gospel Friend, Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
A legendary gospel quintet, and one who sing with the same sort of vocal interplay you'd hear from the best doo wop groups of the time – presented here in a killer collection of work from their formative early years – including tracks that feature later famous solo stars like Lou Rawls, Brother Joe May, and JW Alexander! The collection brings together seminal sides from the 78rpm years of gospel – the kind of tunes that got equal play alongside R&B and blues – and the "boogie" in the title is well-placed, as many of these tracks have a surprisingly strong groove – even though they're mostly acapella in nature. Titles include "My Mother Died & Left Me", "Grow Closer", "Come Home", "Call On Jesus", "Gospel Boogie", "After While", "I Remember The Time", "Jezebel", and "I'll Trust His Hand". CD

OC SmithFor Once In My Life ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Very Good ... $1.99
Pretty darn great work from OC Smith – on of his biggest albums for Columbia! OC's working in a country soul mode that draws on a tradition shared by Solomon Burke, Joe Tex, Ray Charles, and others – turning the genre towards a more pop-driven version of country, the kind that was creeping into the crossover charts at the end of the 60s. The style's one that might have you suspicious, but it comes off surprisingly well – thanks to arrangements by the always-great HB Barnum, the man who brought a syncopated groove to some of Lou Rawls' best work in the late 60s – his Capitol sides with David Axelrod! The feel here is a bit rootsier, but still has that nice Barnum bounce underneath – and titles include "Wichita Lineman", "I Ain't The Worryin' Kind", "The Best Man", "Stormy", "Cycles", "Keep On Keepin On", "Isn't It Lonely Together", and "Promises".

Dakota StatonConfessin' (I Want A Country Man/Madame Foo Foo) ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1972. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
A double-length set from Dakota Staton – featuring 2 of her albums for the Groove Merchant label! First up is I Want A Country Man – very hip work from Dakota, and one of her great early 70s albums for the Groove Merchant label! Backings here are by the band of Manny Albam – in a mode that's jazzy, but inflected with plenty of soul – and which has the same sort of rhythmic pulse that you'd find in Lou Rawls' best later work for Capitol. The style's a great one for Dakota – one that brings a bit more focus and energy to her music, and which almost sets her up more as a soul singer than a jazz one. Titles include "Girl Talk", "Country Man", "Heartbreak", "Make It Easy On Yourself", "How Did He Look", and a really great version of "I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know". Madame Foo Foo is rougher and rawer than we're used to hearing Dakota Staton – and a tasty little session done with Groove Holmes on organ! The tunes are mostly standards, taken at a slower bluesier pace than on some of Dakota's earlier sides – and Groove gets in plenty of licks on Hammond, sneaking behind Dakota's vocals, and working with a group that includes Bernard Purdie, Cornell Dupree, and Horace Ott. Titles include "Blues For Tasty", "A House Is Not A Home", "Candy", "Deep In A Dream", and "A Losing Battle". LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy WilsonJust For Now/Lush Life (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Caroline (UK), 1967/1968. Used ... $9.99
A pair of classics from Nancy Wilson – with bonus tracks too! On the album Just For Now, Nancy Wilson sings just for now – but in that way that could make any of her late 60s Capitol sessions a timeless classic – a record that has a lot more staying power than you'd guess from the title! Wilson's a genius at this point in her career – trained in jazz, with phrasing that's impeccable and at a level that brings a whole new sophistication to the music – but also able to open up with a groove, too, even on the gentler numbers – as open to soulful 60s currents in her music as Lou Rawls was with his – which is why both artists' Capitol sides are so incomparable! Arrangements are great – well-suited to Nancy's voice, and handled by Billy May, Oliver Nelson, and Sid Feller with a strong current of jazz – on titles that include "If He Walked Into My Life", "Rain Sometimes", "What Now My Love", "That's Life", "Born Free", "I'll Make A Man Of The Man", and "Just For Now". Lush Life is genius work from Nancy Wilson – the kind of Capitol Records gem that was partly jazz, partly soul, and very much in that special territory that made Wilson one of the most mature, sophisticated singers of the 60s! The record's got Nancy working through some material with bluer currents, sometimes in a mode that's late night in the instrumentation – but never in the older style of torch tunes. Instead, arrangers Billy May, Olver Nelson, and Sid Feller really keep things groovy – matching the newer spirit that Wilson brings to her music – which results in superb readings of songs throughout. Titles include some nice lesser-known material – like "River Shallow", "Free Again", "Only The Young", "The Right To Love", and "Over The Weekend" – plus versions of "Lush Life", "Midnight Sun", and "Sunny". CD features four bonus tracks – "I Concentrate On You", "Don't Look Over Your Shoulder", "Do You Know Why", and "But Only Sometimes" – and records are presented in their original mono mixes! CD

VariousBlue Bossa – Vols 1 to 3 – Cool Cuts From The Tropics (3CD set) ... CD
Blue Note (Germany), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99
The Latin side of Blue Note Records – and the Brazilian one, too – served up here in a series that brought together classic work from the label in a special sort of groove – tunes that are maybe more influenced by south of the border rhythms than you'd expect from the soul jazz and hardbop artists who originally made the records! There's a bit of bossa here, but the rhythms open up into a fair bit more, too – and it's great to hear the difference in these musicians as they change things up from straighter bop modes, and use the new grooves to open up their solos and rework their phrasing too! This side of Blue Note was sometimes buried in a world of collectors looking for more familiar hardbop, but it really lives again, thanks tot he Blue Bossa collection. 3CD set features 41 tracks in all – including "Afreaka" by Lee Morgan, "Avila & Tequila" by Hank Mobley, "Chitlins Con Carne" by Kenny Burrell, "Congalegre" by Horace Parlan, "Back Down To The Tropics" by Charlie Rouse, "Latona" by Big John Patton, "Girl From Ipanema" by Lou Rawls, "La Fiesta" by Stanley Turrentine, "Headin South" by Horace Parlan, "La Malanga" by Bobby Hutcherson, "Mama Inez" by Grant Green, "Swingin The Samba" by Horace Silver, "Upa Neguinho" by Duke Pearson, "Mambo Inn" by Grant Green, "Ghana" by Donald Byrd, "Love For Sale" by Dexter Gordon, "Samba De Orfeu" by Charlie Rouse, "Afrodisia" by Kenny Dorham, "Sambop" by Cannonball Adderley with Bossa Rio, "Loi" by Ike Quebec, "Sandalia Dela" by Duke Pearson, "Congo Lament" by Ike Quebec, "Corcovado" by Grant Green, "Tin Tin Deo" by James Moody, "El Gaucho" by Wayne Shorter, and "Stormy" by Duke Pearson.

✨✧ Jackie MittooKeyboard King ... LP
Dynamic Sounds/Radiation Roots (Italy), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Jackie Mittoo was definitely the keyboard king down in Jamaica – a player whose burning organ was a part of some of the best Kingston grooves in the late 60s – and one who moved into an even cooler range of keys as the 70s moved on! This wicked set has Jackie sounding every bit as hip as he looks on the cover in his badass outfit – handling more than a few keyboards at once, as pictured in the photo – and working with dubby rhythms that make his electric piano, organ, and other instruments sound mighty nice in the mix! The album's got a great trippy take on a Lou Rawls Philly hit – an instrumental titled "You'll Never Find" – and other tracks include "The Thriller", "A Rocking Sensation", "World Of Love", "The Avenger", "The Penetrator", "Mediator", "A Standing Ovation", and "Jah Rock Style".

✨✧ Teddy PendergrassLive Coast To Coast ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1979. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Teddy Pendergrass follows up the style of Lou Rawls' double live album for Philly International – and goes for a very similar mix of modes that showcases all his charm and soulful spirit! The 2LP set features material recorded in both Philly and LA – with a fair bit of Teddy's working the audience along with the tunes. And as an added bonus, side 4 of the album also features radio interview material with Teddy, plus a few new studio tracks for the set – a nice addition, but one that also makes us wonder why, after 2 locations of live recording, they couldn't get together enough concert material for the record! Titles include "Life Is A Song Worth Singing", "Only You", "Turn Off The Lights", "Do Me", "Close The Door", "Come Go With Me", "Where Did All The Lovin Go", "Get UP Get Down Get Funky Get Loose", "When Somebody Loves You Back", "Shout & Scream", "It's You I Love", and "LA Rap".

✨✧ VariousBlue Break Beats – Vols 1 to 3 – The Jazz Break Beats That Made Hip Hop Hits (3CD set) ... CD
Blue Note (Germany), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A special package that brings together the first three volumes in this landmark series – one that had the Blue Note label digging back in their catalog and completely re-thinking their approach to reissues – given the new popularity of jazz in the hip hop sample world! As you'd guess from the title, the music here is very strongly oriented in the mode of "breaks", or tracks that were sampled for later hip hop and club recordings – classic jazz tunes from the glory days of Blue Note that have gone onto live again, thanks to the keen ears and inventive work of more contemporary DJs and producers. After all these years, The Blue Breakbeats series still stands as one of the best illustrations of the funkier side of the label – and titles include "Blue Juice" by Jimmy McGriff, "Groovin For Mr G" by Richard Groove Holmes, "Street Lady" by Donald Byrd, "Jasper Country Man" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Higga Boom" by Gene Harris, "Walk Tall" by Cannonball Adderley, "Howlin For Judy" by Jeremy Steig, "Sho Nuff Mellow" by Rueben Wilson, "Ode To Billie Joe" by Lou Donaldson, "Don't Call Me N*gger Whitey" by Gene Harris, "Mystic Brew" by Ronnie Foster, "Ground Hog" by Duke Pearson, "Ummh" by Bobby Hutcherson, "Ain't It Funky Now" by Grant Green, "Your Love Is Just Too Much" by Gene Harris, "Kudu" by Eddie Henderson, "The Weasil" by Donald Byrd, "It's Your Thing" by Lou Donaldson, "The Worm" by Jimmy McGriff, "Orange Peel" by Reuben Wilson, "The Kumquat Kids" by Eddie Henderson, "Good Humor Man" by Blue Mitchell, "Viva Tirado" by Gerald Wilson, "Turtle Walk" by Lou Donaldson, "Final Comedown" by Grant Green, "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by Joe Williams, "You've Made Me So Very Happy" by Lou Rawls, and "Oliloqui Valley" by Herbie Hancock.

Sony (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A great little set of classic disco tracks, but one that also includes a few rare mixes too – all brought together in a monumental tribute to the sound of the east coast scene at the end of the 70s! The package is heavy on tracks with origins in Philly and New York – including a fair bit of Philadelphia International gems from the Gamble & Huff team, mixed with other work from the larger holdings of Sony labels – including Epic, Columbia, RCA, and Buddah at the time. There's a nicely unified feel to the whole thing – one that really makes us re-appreciate some of these cuts in the setting – and titles include unreleased cuts "Love is The Message (Danny Krivit edit)" by MFSB, "I Don't Wanna Lose Your Love (DJ Reverend P edit)" by The Emotions "You Can't Had From Yourself (Mike Maurro rmx)" by Teddy Pendergrass, and "Love Epidemic (DJ Reverend P edit)" by The Trammps" – plus the cuts "Don't Leave Me This Way (Tom Moulton mix)" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Was That All It Was (78rpm version)" by Jean Carne, "Ain't No Smoke Without Fire (DJ Reverend P edit)" by Eddie Kendricks, "Bad Luck (Mike Maurro ext rmx)" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Where Will You Go When The Party's Over (Tom Moulton mix)" by Archie Bell & The Drells, "This Time Baby (Tom Moulton mix)" by Jackie Moore, "You Stepped Into My Life (John Luongo rmx)" by Melba Moore, "I Love Music (Tom Moulton mix)" by The O'Jays, "See You When I Get There (Tom Moulton mix)" by Lou Rawls, "Could Heaven Ever Be Like This (DJ Reverend P edit)" by Idris Muhammad, "Taste Of Bitter Love" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "It's In Your Blood (special disco version)" by Linda Hopkins, "Boogie Wonderland (12" version)" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Walk Right Now (John Luongo disco mix)" by The Jacksons, "Standing Right Here (Tom Moulton mix)" by Melba Moore, "Groovin You (12" mix)" by Harvey Mason, and "Dirty Old Man (Tom Moulton ext 12" mix)" by Three Degrees.

✨✧ Ernie AndrewsErnie Andrews Sings With The Fuzzy Kane Trio ... LP
Phil-LA Of Soul, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Ernie takes a hip trip from the west coast, and hooks up with the great Fuzzy Kane Trio – an extremely soulful outfit that flourished in the Baltimore scene of the late 60s, but only ever cut one other album on their own. Ernie's still in the pop soul vocal style of earlier albums – a mode that's got a bit of Lou Rawls, and some of the other ambitious crossover intentions of the LA scene of the 60s – but Fuzzy's work on the acoustic piano sweetly souls up the best tracks, and the album features some nice obscure tunes – which pushes it past the usual session of this sort. Titles include "Nearly", "July the 12th, 1939", "Say Hello To Yesterday", "Time To Hit The Street Again", "Free The People", and "Sometime When You're Lonely". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousMostly Ghostly – More Horror For Halloween ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the hippest Halloween collections you could ever hope to buy – an amazing follow up to Ace Records' legendary These Ghoulish Things – and like that one, a treasure trove of oddball novelty numbers with a sweet October spirit! The work here goes way past familiar "Monster Mash" modes – and instead, really trawls the depths of late 50s and early 60s rock and roll – in search of weird tunes that make great use of odd production techniques, offbeat instrumentation, sound effects, and lots of horror film-inspired styles – a perfect blend of music for the Halloween holiday, and for all year long! The notes are as great as the music – and the set features 25 titles that include "Terrible Ivan" by Art Roberts, "The Cave" by Chuck Holden, "Dracula's Theme" by The Ghouls, "Do The Zombie" by The Symbols, "The Mad Scientist" by The Zanies, "They're Here" by Boots Walker, "The Goo Goo Muck" by Ronnie Cook & The Gaylads, "Spooky Movies" by Roy Clark, and "Sleepy Hollow" by The Last Word.
