VariousLater Jin Singles – The Promised Land ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
Jin Records was a powerhouse of Louisiana music from the moment the company first hung up its shingle – a showcase for the unusual sort of blend that was happening down in the swampy state – from rockabilly groovers, to raw rockers and early zydeco too – a legacy so strong, it kept on turning out wonderful music even in the label's later years! The early Jin sound has been well documented elsewhere, but this collection does an excellent job of showing the continued growth of Louisiana music in the 60s – especially the sounds that developed away from New Orleans, where strands of regional styles kept on changing, and came across with a mighty nice blend like this. Titles include "No Good Woman" by Rockin Sidney, "The Promised Land" by Johnnie Allan, "I'm Not Ashamed" by Margo White, "Opelousas Sostan" by Rufus Jagneaux, "Pont Breaux" by Johnnie Allan, "Try Me" by Clint West, "Take Her Back" by Skip Stewart, "Living In A Dream" by Kenny Tibbs, and "Growing Old" by Billy Lewis. 26 tracks in all!

Orchestra BaobabNight At Club Baobab – Senegalese Dance Music Of The 70s ... CD
Oriki (France), 1970s. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
A tremendous compilation of rare work by one of the hippest African groups of the 70s – the mighty Orchestra Baobab, a combo who wove together many different strands of jazz, funk, and soul! The tunes here are all live ones – recorded in the mid 70s in the group's home turf at Club Baobab, and often done in a looser, more open mode than some of their better-known sessions – a perfect setting for the complicated rhythms, snakey horn parts, and soulful vocals that emerge as the set moves on! A few tracks here get nice and funky – funkier than even we would have expected from the group – and others maintain a compellingly creative sound that really keeps things interesting, with plenty of exotic overtones and otherworldly styles! The whole thing's great – way more than just a collection of 70s Afro Funk, and a record that's nicely links up the worlds of both Fela and Mulatu through its creative interplay of sounds. CD features 13 tracks that include "Jin Ma Jin Ma", "Souleymane", "Saf Mana Dem", "Kelen Ati Leen", "Seeri Koko", "Liti Liti", "Dirarabi", "On Verra", "Cabral", "Wango", "Sey", and "Yolanda". CD

✨✧ OlatunjiDrums Of Passion ... LP
Columbia, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic session of pounding percussion – quite possibly the most successful entry into this earthy genre that hit the recording scene at the end of the 50s! Babatunde Olatunji is joined here by a great assemblage of players – including Montego Joe and Baba Hawthorne Bey on percussion, who further flesh out the rumbling, rhythmic groove at the bottom. There's also a group of vocalists on the record, soaring over the top of the percussion with a nicely righteous feel – and the record's a key crossover moment that heralds later African expressions in the American mainstream. Titles include "Odun De Odun De", "Oya", "Jin Go Lo Ba", "Baba Jinde", and "Shango". LP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing.)

✨✧ Masahiko Sato & Wolfgang DaunerPianology ... LP
Far East/Victory, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Two incredible pianists – both working here with an amazing sense of freedom, on a record that really brings out the best in both musicians! Wolfgang Dauner is possibly better known for his psych and fusion outings, but he's also a hell of a free jazz acoustic player too – and really opens up in the company of Masahiko Sato – who himself seems to maybe absorb a bit more of the wit of Dauner, as the pair shape these amazing sounds together, all with a musicality that's rare for a meeting of two talents in such a free setting! Ego seems very much put aside, and there's a yearning for tunefulness, even amidst the freedom – and at a few points, one of the players (probably Dauner) handles a bit of Fender Rhodes, which makes for a nice contrast. Titles include "Everything", "They Got Rhythm Too", "For Chinatsu & Regina", "Jin Juppo Kai", and "Thousand Summers". LP, Vinyl record album

Pearl BaileySings For Adults Only ... LP
Roulette, 1957. Very Good- ... $2.99
Not as "adult" as you might think – at least given the way the word is used today – but pretty great work by Pearl nonetheless! The tunes themselves are a bit "blue" in terms of subject matter – tales of girls with hot pants, loose love, and the kind of backroom hijinks that weren't always talked about so freely in the torch singer era. But given the time, and the setting, the tunes are still pretty soft on the subjects – and get the themes across through clever turns of phrase, slight innuendo, and just the right intonation at the right time – a style that makes Pearl Bailey perfect for the work! Titles include "I Want A Man", "She Had To Go & Lose It At The Astor", "The Physician", "Josephine", "Zip", "Flings", "You Can Be Replaced" and "Legalize My Name". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lenny BruceLenny Bruce Originals Vol 1 (Interviews Of Our Times/Sick Humor Of Lenny Bruce) ... CD
Fantasy, 1958. Used ... $3.99
A Lenny Bruce 2-fer – 2 classic albums back to back on a single CD! First up is Interviews Of Our Times – not necessarily a record of interviews – as the title might make you think – but one of Bruce's best records for Fantasy! The album's got some very edgey bits that approximate his live material, and which take the best part of his cleaner act, and transfer them well to record. Titles include "Dijinni In The Candy Store", "Enchanting Transylvania", "Interview With Dr Sholem Stein", "The Interview", "All Broadway Musicals Sound The Same, Especially The Baritones", and "The March Of High Fidelity". Sick Humor Of Lenny Bruce is possibly the most famous of all the Lenny Bruce albums on Fantasy – as it's the one that has a crazy image of Lenny having a picnic in a cemetery! Lenny's genius is still in formation here – but the record does have some great moments, like the oft-sampled "Religions Inc", and the crazy song "Psychopathia Sexualis", a great example of the way that Lenny used to mix music in his live performances!

CandidoDancin' & Prancin' (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $4.99
A key chapter in the rich long legacy of Candido on record – a set that pushes the percussion maestro strongly into the disco generation – with wonderful results that are still massively strong all these many years later! Candido had always been one of the funkiest conga players around – especially as his music moved into the 70s – but here, he really takes off with some sublime disco arrangements – full clubby grooves that are some of the best Salsoul sounds of the time, yet which still leave plenty of room for Candi's congas! The congas participate in the rhythms at every level – and often take on a nice solo spotlight too – and all tracks are nice and long, with killers that include a club remake of "Thousand Finger Man", plus "Dancin & Prancin", "Jingo", and "Rock & Shuffle". CD features a massive amount of bonus tracks – more than on the album – with gems from singles that include "Jingo (original 12" version)", "Thousand Finger Man (12" ext version)", "Jingo (Shep Pettibone mix)", "Thousand Finger Man (single)", "Jingo (single)", and "Jingo (inst)".

Lionel HamptonYou Better Know It !!! ... CD
Impulse/GRP, 1964. Used ... $3.99
A warm and wonderful 60s session from Lionel Hampton – recorded in a personal and intimate way, one that even surpasses his great small combo sides of the 50s! There's a relaxed feel here that you don't always get with Hamp – a gently grooving quality that we really like a lot, and which is traditional, but never too staid or too "easy" in its choices. The set benefits from some really strong horn work from Clark Terry on trumpet and Ben Webster on tenor – the latter of whom really crackles out with a great sound here. Other players include Milt Hinton on bass, Hank Jones on piano, and Osie Johnson on drums – and there's also a very slight bit of vocalizing on the record as well. Titles include "Tempo's Birthday", "Vibraphone Blues", "Trick Or Treat", "Cute", "Swingle Jingle", and "Taste Of Honey". CD

Francoise HardyFrancoise Hardy (La Maison Ou J'Ai Grande) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Vogue/Light In The Attic, 1966. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 22.99
A very groovy record from the legendary Francoise Hardy – a set that's not only got the lovely lady out front on vocals and acoustic guitar, but one that also features totally great arrangements from Brit maestro Johnny Harris – who gives most of the record a slightly different vibe than some of Hardy's previous sets! Harris has a great ear for the spacious – opening up the sound at the sides, in ways that only seem to enforce Francoise's majesty in the center – with these subtle, but powerful touches that are also carried on by Charles Blackwell on a few cuts too. The whole thing's wonderful – jingle-jangle pop grooves, sweet guitar lines, and really great French vocals over the top – on titles that include "Si C'est Ca", "Je Changerais D'Avis", "Comme", "Tu Es Un Peu A Moi", "Qu'Ils Sont Heureux", and "Il Est Des Choses". LP, Vinyl record album

Early 50s mambo work by Prado – recorded in both Mexico and New York, bundled together as a jam-packed set of 25 tracks in all! The tunes have that hard-hitting approach that made Perez such a hit from the start, and the package is one of the best collections of his early work that we've ever seen. Titles include "Jumbo Jumbo", "Martinica", "Latino", "Jing A Ling, Jing A Ling", "Alekum Salem", "O Caballo", "Guao", and "El Bombero". CD

✨✧ Sandra RhodesWhere's Your Love Been (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Fantasy/Omnivore, 1973. Used ... $9.99
A nice little album from Sandra Rhodes – an artist who sung backup vocals on more than a few southern soul sides in her day – emerging here on her own in a style that's part country, part rock, and plenty touched by the Memphis soul scene from which she emerged! The album's produced and arranged by Charles Chalmers, and it's got a flanged-out, laidback sound that makes it a bit hipper than you'd expect – almost Memphis meets LA, with a quality that really takes the music past its Tennessee roots, but also without losing them as well. Titles include "Sho Is Rainin", "It's Up To You", "Sowed Love & Reaped The Heartache", "Where's Your Love Been", "No Such Thing As Love", and "Never Grow Old". CD features 7 previously-unreleased bonus tracks from the same sessions – including "Jingo", "I Don't Play The Game", "Linda Was A Lady", "Baby Don't Go", "I'd Rather Hurt You Now", and "Someday Sweet Baby".

Barbara RuskinLittle Of This – The Barbara Ruskin Songbook ... CD
President (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $3.99 15.98
A dreamy collection of work by Barbara Ruskin – a lesser-known girl singer from the 60s Brit scene, but one who's fast rising to the top of our list with her work on this great set! Barbara's got a style that's similar to, but a bit different than that of contemporaries like Sandie Shaw, Dusty Springfield, or Cilla Black – because (as you'd guess from the acoustic guitar on the cover), Barbara's got a bit more of an influence from folk music – and as her recordings progress, she picks up some nice trippier elements that expand her sound past the usual UK girl pop mode, into a headier style that we really love. There's plenty of jingle-jangle in the mix here – and the CD's extremely well done, with the kind of notes and images we'd expect from Sanctuary or Cherry Red! Titles include "Pawnbroker Pawnbroker", "Light Of Love", "Euston Station", "Song Without End", "On South Street", "Information", "Almost", "You Can't Blame A Girl For Trying", "The 24th Day Of July", "The Loneliest Word In The World", and "Yesterday's Coffee".

SoiaHIOP ... CD
Record Breakin, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
Spacey soul from Soia – a European singer who works closely here with producer Mez – who served up some great beats on their previous record together! The vibe here is very similar – kind of a mellow take on broken modes from a decade before – with a slowed-down pace that allows for plenty of vocal and keyboard inflections, and a spacey production style that makes all the elements float together in a really beautiful way! At some level, the record's one that might sound best in the smaller hours past midnight – but some tracks also have a more urgent feel that demands rapt attention. Titles include "Habibi", "Hidden In Obvious Places", "Ignite Despite", "Tropical Jinx", "See Me Hollow", "1000 Layers", and "Roaming Deer". CD

A very cool set from sound library enigma Teisco – and one that's a lot more tune-based than some of his other work! The vibe here is very much in an early 80s electro mode – lots of processed guitar over drum machine rhythms, often with this wobbly vibrating sound that's pretty darn cool – spooky at the same time that it's catchy, with a quality that almost feels like some of the more experimental Factory Records groups trying to come up with jingles for TV commercials – but in a really weird way! Titles include "Zompalompax", "Atmosfera Neutra", "Artico", "Mutazione", "Plane Beta", "I Foletti", and "Suffritticosa". CD

Three SoundsBottoms Up! ... LP
Blue Note, 1959. Very Good- ... $19.99
The bottom is certainly "up" on this one – as the Three Sounds groove things from the ground up, taking soul jazz piano to the next level with an approach that quickly made them one of the most popular Blue Note acts of the early 60s! Gene Harris leads the group on piano – and also plays celeste on one track (!) – and the other Sounds at this point are Andrew Simpkins on bass and Bill Dowdy on drums – a really great rhythm section that have a way of being soulfully quiet, with a very subtle groove – one that's much more understated than you might find in the Ramsey Lewis trio, but equally hip. Tracks include "Jinne Lou", "Besame Mucho", "Love Walked In", "Angel Eyes", "Falling In Love With Love", and "Time After Time". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing with 63rd Street label with deep groove on one side, New York on the other, with RVG stamp and ear. Cover has a peeled spot from sticker removal and some marker on back.)

VariousAfro Rock Vol 1 ... CD
Kona/Evolver, 1970s. Used ... $8.99
One of the best compilations of Afro Funk titles we've ever stocked – one that goes way past the obvious titles and minor hits of the 70s! Ever tune on here is a gem – and the package even includes a few tunes that were either previously unreleased, or which were only ever issued on cassette, a popular form in 70s Africa. The "rock" in the title should be taken lightly – because the groove here is more funky, with drums, guitar, and horns coming together in glorious rhythmic cacophony! The whole set's got a great raw sound – and titles include "Mabala" by Yahoos, "Onukpa Shawarpo" by Bokoor Band, "Sweeper Soul" by Super Mambo 69, "Yuda" by Dackin Dackino, "Envy No Good" by Mercury Dance Band", and "Fever" by Jingo.
