Nascente (UK), Late 60s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99
A great Afro-soul double-header – one that features a disc apiece of these two great groups! CD 1 features classics by Mahlathini & The Mahotella Queens – including a fair bit of older tracks that sound especially nice – really taking off from some of the mainstream South African modes of the 60s, but adding in a richer soul component too! The set features later numbers too, but mostly sticks in the rougher, rawer territory – with cuts that include "We Boy", "Dinaka", "Deda Endleleni", "Ntombi Zodwa", "Melodi Yalla", "Izinyoni", "Thoko", "Vuka Uzibuke", and "Jive Makgona". CD 2 focuses on work by The Soul Brothers – great 70s sides that have some mighty nice Hammond lines bubbling along with the vocals – almost adding a dose of Memphis soul to their South African harmonies! Titles include "Dumela", "Usizi", "Abantu", "Mshoza Wami", "Malume", "Indawo Yokulala", "Uthando", "I Feel So Lonely Without You", and "Ukhalelani". CD

Schoolly DSaturday Night! - The Album (Jive pressing) ... LP
Jive, 1987. Sealed ... $11.99
The classic by Schoolly D – his second album, and the one where he really hits his stride – with profane humor and classic drum machine and oddball sample flavored production! It's almost hard-to-believe nowadays, but the un-PC rhymes were straight up scandalous back in the day – but Schoolly's laidback, charismatic delivery always tempered that language in our minds, and the production sounds fresh to this day. Not everyone agrees with us, but this is definitely one of our favorite favorite hip hop records of the later 80s! Inspired cuts include the title cut, "B-Boy Rhyme and Riddle", "We Get Ill", "Parkside 5-2", "We Get Ill", and the Code Money DJ track, "It's Krack", "Dis Groove Is Bad", "Get N' Paid", "Do It Do It" and the rest LP, Vinyl record album

Early instrumental electro tracks produced by the Willesden Dodgers. A couple have a sound similar to some of the Whodini and Soul Sonic Force tracks from around that time.. (There isn't any scratching on the tracks – the "Scratch" in the title means the spare production makes the tracks suitable for scratching...) Twelve 5-6 minute tracks, in the 100-120 bpm range.

VariousSoul Safari Presents Township Jive & Kwela Jazz Vol 3 ... LP
Ubuntu (Netherlands), Early 60s. New Copy ... $22.99
Maybe our favorite volume so far in this excellent series – a set that focuses on early 60s work from South Africa, with a vibe that really showcases that great sound that would soon explode globally – as artists like Hugh Masekela and Miriam Makeba got wider exposure! Yet the music here is hardly as commercial as sounds from those two – as the overall production and presentation is nice and rootsy – lively rhythms topped with jazzy instrumentation and these especially wonderful vocals that dip, turn, soar, and fly – all at a level that would become cliche in the world music boom decades later, but which still sounds beautiful here at the roots. All tracks were hand-picked from the archives of the International Library Of African Music – and titles include "Nylon" and "Intogeymy" by The Lower Buttons, "Seven Stiches" and "Rock Phata 1001" by Kid Ma Wrong Wrong, "Lulu Part 4" by Bra Sello, "Mangothobane" and "Wamuhle Lomfana" by Flying Jazz Queens, "Kudala Ngizula" by Cowboy Superman & His Cowboy Sisters, and "Nice Time" by Que Sisters.

Capitol, 1950s/Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
About as great an introduction to the music of Louie Prima as we've ever seen – a set that not only contains key classics for Capitol, but also some surprising bits from later years too! The package starts with Prima's classics of the postwar years – sides cut with Keely Smith and Sam Butera, including famous live tunes and medleys – then it also moves into the 60s too, and even features some tracks not on CD before. 26 cuts in all – with "Civilization", "I Wanna Be Like You", "Angelina/Zooma Zooma", "Jump Jive An Wail", "Oh Marie", "Hey Boy Hey Girl", "Up A Lazy River", "Hello Dolly", "Bunoa Sera", "Cabaret", "Just One Of Those Things", "I've Got The World On A String", "Just A Gigolo/I Ain't Got Nobody", "Felicia No Capecia", "5 Months 2 Weeks 2 Days", and "When You're Smiling/The Sheik Of Araby".

✨✧ Johnny Dyani & Mal WaldronSome Jive Ass Boer – Live At Jazz Unite ... CD
Jazz Unite (France), 1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful pairing of players – bassist Johnny Dyani and pianist Mal Waldron – coming together here in an early 80s date that's every bit as great as we might have hoped! Dyani's bass really gets a chance to step out here – lots of space that gives Johnny a chance to shine with some more sensitive, soulful tones on his instrument – not nearly as forceful as some of his more outside recordings of the period, and perfectly matched with Waldron's piano – which always seems to take on its own sort of richness in spare duo dates like this. Tracks are all extremely long – with a feel that's somewhat improvised, but never structure-less, and usually with a good sense of rhythm. Pablo Sauvage joins the duo on one track – "Makulu Kalahari", which also features a bit of vocals from Dyani – and other titles include "Blues For Mandela", "Safari", "African Cake Walk", "Time Will Tell", and "Strange Intrusions".

✨✧ Dr Ross & His Jump & Jive BoysJuke Box Boogie – The Sun Years Plus ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1950s/1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the lesser-known blues singers to record for the legendary Sun Records – but an artist with a wealth of work for that famous label, packaged here with tracks for Chess, Fortune, and a few other labels too! The set features Dr Ross recorded down in Memphis, and up in Detroit – always with a style that mixes older blues roots with a nascent electric mode – one that stays nice and raw throughout the span of the sides included here, with a style that often emphasizes skittish rhythms that work beautifully with Ross' vocals and harmonica! We love the guitar – often also by Ross – which has a Chicago depth, but also a bit of a southern twang – and some of the best numbers have the instrument nervously jumping along with the rhythms in a really great way. The package features full session details on the music, plus 40 pages of notes and photos on Ross – and titles include "Country Clown", "Down south Blues", "Shake A My Hand", "Chicago Breakdown", "The Boogie Disease", "Call The Cotor", "The Sunnyland", "Turkey Bakin Woman", "1953 Jump", "Sugar Mama", and "New York Breakdown".

✨✧ VariousSoul Safari Presents Township Jive & Kwela Jazz 1940 to 1960 ... LP
Ubuntu (Netherlands), 1940s/1950s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very cool collection of work from the South African scene – and almost all of it from the start of the 60s, despite the way the title is listed! Apart from one 1940 track, most of the music here comes from 1960 – a pivotal year when South African music was really growing up – pulling together rootsy elements and inflecting them with some of the key changes happening in the scene in the wake of rich developments in jazz – including big influences from the modernists who would move onto work in Europe and the UK just a few years later. Many numbers here have a leaping, joyous sort of groove – often with a key instrument in the lead voice – such as a tenor, flute, whistle, or trumpet – often upfront in the mix even more than the vocals. Titles include "7 Up Swing" by Abafana Flute Jive, "Nanku" by Doris Mkhize & The Cement Mixers, "Inhliziyo Yam" by Cowboy Superman & His Cowboy Sisters, "Tholi Bare" by Lulu Sibeko & Sedgewick Brothers, "Sophtown Special" by Sophtown Cool Seven, "Kwela Rich" by Richard Nombali, and "Saya Vuma" by Sample Siroqo.

✨✧ VariousSouth African Funk Experience –- Zulu, Funky Disco, Shebeen Jive, Jo 'Burg Funk, Spiritual Jazz Dance , Shangaan & More ... CD
Nascente (UK), 1970s/1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An excellent collection of funky tracks from South Africa – most of them with a slightly different feel than work you'd get on other Afro Funk compilations – and we mean that in a good way, too! Some of the artists are names you'd recognize from later recordings of the big South African crossover years of the 80s and 90s – but they're represented here by harder, edgier cuts from the early days – and mixed up with some more obscure acts, too – which really helps bring a freshness to the set, especially given the interweaving of genres that goes on – as you might guess from the extended sub-title of the CD! Titles include "Sangoma" by Malombo, "Oh Yeh Soweto" by Teaspoon & The Waves, "Intombi Ibhinca Isidwaba" by Phuzushukela, "Kikzelani" by Nelcy Sedibe, "Hula Hoop Jive" by Kataki, "Andromeda" by Chris McGregor's Brotherhood Of Breath, "Malume" by Abafakasi, "Baloyi" by Dudu Pukwana & Spear, "Lily's Express" by Gwigwi Mrwebi, "Wozan Mahipi" by Mahlathini & Mahotella Queens, and "Bayeza" by Soul Brothers.

Raheem DeVaughnLove & War Masterpeace ... CD
Jive, 2010. Used ... $2.99
Maybe the greatest set so far from Raheem DeVaughn – an artist we loved way back in his early mixtape days, and one who's grown tremendously in recent years! The set's filled with wisdom and knowledge – and comes across with this deeply soulful feel that's rooted in the righteous era of Curtis Mayfield and Gil Scott-Heron, but which also bumps along with plenty of contemporary touches too – thanks to some sweet production help from Kenny Dope on some of the album's best cuts! The mix of Kenny and Raheem is a dream come true – and Cornel West drops in a few spoken bits to round out the album's sense of purpose too – alongside other guests who include Jill Scott, Bilal, Malik Yusef, Wale, and Ludacris. Cuts include "Bedroom", "My Wife", "Bulletproof", "Nobody Wins A War", "Fragile", "Mr Right", "I Don't Care", and "Black & Blue". CD

Raheem DeVaughnLove Behind The Melody ... CD
Jive, 2008. Used ... $1.99
Damn great work from Raheem DeVaughn – the full promise of his soulful sojourn in the underground mixtape scene! Raheem first got his start laying down vocals over beats and other folks' tracks on self-crafted CDs that changed hands covertly in the east coast scene – and that experience gave him plenty of time to grow and mature, quietly developing his sound to a point where he can really burst forth with power on a record like this! There's still a bit of the old mixtape feel going on here – a range of older musical influences that inform Raheem's tunes – and a personal, almost casual approach that has DeVaughn speaking intros to some tracks, almost as if he's spinning them out with a personal, conversational style. Yet the production is also much better than before too – quite warm, with some great beats and keys in the mix – proof that stepping out of the underground can often be a good thing for a soul artist. Titles include "Customer", "Hello Love", "Woman", "Love Drug", "Friday", "Can We Try Again", "Empty", "Four Letter Word", and "Woman I Desire". Includes guest appearances from Floetry, Big Boi, and Malik Yusef. CD

A pretty nice starting point for some of better known tracks by Kelis – she who brings all the boys to the yard – and who still doesn't get enough credit for being a part of some of the best hip hop-pop-soul singles of the past decade! This set is wise enough to pull a few tracks together that featured Kelis as guest vocalist as well as cuts from her own albums – much of it produced by the Neptunes, naturally! Includes "Milkshake", "Got Your Money" (ODB featuring Kelis), "Trick Me", "Lil Star" feat Cee-Lo, "Get Along With You", "Young, Fresh N' New", "Bossy" feat Too Short, "In Public" feat Nas, "Millionaire" feat Andre 3000, "Suspended" and more.

Kool Moe DeeHow Ya Like Me Now (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Jive/FTG, 1987. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
Kool Moe Dee's second album – a benchmark moment in mid-to-late 80s solo rap – and definitely worth a post millennium revisit! The title cut is a prime relic of the Kool Moe Dee vs. LL Cool J battles back in the day, and that along with "Wild Wild West" are bonafide classic cuts – but the a lot of the lesser remembered tracks here are ultimately just as nice. Even though it's only his second album, Moe was a block rockin' veteren by this point, with an MC pedigree stretching back to Treacherous Three, and is probably his sharpest point. Other tracks include "Suckers", "Way Way Back", "No Respect", "Don't Dance", "I'm A Player" and "Get Paid". This 2015 CD version includes 3 bonus mixes of "No Respect". CD

Eugene BlacknellWe Can't Take Life For Granted ... CD
Luv N' Haight/Ubiquity, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
A massive amount of rare work from East Bay funk maestro Eugene Blacknell – an artist who never cut a full album, but managed to record a lot of great funky tracks over the years! This package is the first ever full length set to focus on Eugene's work, and it's a treasure trove of guitar-heavy groovers – starting with some rough-edged, raw R&B-styled funk – then moving into some fuller party funk and boogie-styled numbers! Eugene's guitar is fully in the lead on most tracks – and the vibe of the later work is in a space that's somewhere between Bootsy Collins and Shuggie Otis – a very good place to be, in our opinion. The package was done in collaboration with Eugene's son, and features rare singles, remastered cuts, and even some exclusive and live tracks that have never seen the light of day before. The set features a whopping 25 tracks in all, all with great notes on Eugene's music and story – and titles that include "Cousin John", "Mo Self", "Jump Back", "Getting Down", "The Trip", "Dance To The Rhythm", "For The Sake Of Love", "Jive Kinda Friends", "Wah Wah Funk", "Space Funk", "Don't Stop Now", "Grov-ve Monkey", and even a few rare radio spots!

One of the earthiest albums ever cut by guitarist Charlie Byrd – a session that predates his better-known sides on Riverside and Columbia, and which definitely earns the "blues" in the title! Byrd's working here with his familiar trio of Keeter Betts on bass and Gus Johnson on drums – playing acoustic guitar, but in a way that's nicely laidback, and quite open overall – almost like Tiny Grimes, but a bit less hard-edged overall. Titles include the "Blues For Night People" suite on side one, plus "Blues My Naughtie Sweetie Taught Me", "Blue Prelude", and "Jive At Five". LP, Vinyl record album

Jacko's working here with singer Gerrie Woo – who sings in English on about half of the album's tracks, giving the set a nice pop-styled Latin groove that reminds us a lot of Willie Bobo's work for Verve, and some of the more unusual indie Latin albums of the time. The set's filled with loads of great numbers – including Hector Rivera compositions "Recuerdos", "Que Vengo Acabando", "Don't Squeeze The Peaches", and "Mambo Jack" – plus covers of "Jive Samba", "Words", and "Green Onions".

The group is extremely tight instrumentally – working at a very fast funky clip that's kind of similar to work by Bohannon or Sound Experience – both of whom shared Exit 9's pre-disco approach to dancefloor grooves – more fast-funk than the tighter club sound of later years, and proof that a funky combo could hit the dancefloor if it had the right groove! Most numbers have vocals, and instrumentation includes lots of nice guitar work that keeps a rawer edge on the tracks – choppy and gritty in a really great way.

Giant Steps (UK), 1953/1955. Used 2CD ... $19.99
A stunning roster of players made up the house band at Hermosa Beach, CA's legendary Lighthouse Cafe – an outfit accompanied on these early-to-mid 50s dates by tenor sax giant Stan Getz – with work that's as much an aural snapshot of the sound of place and time as it is a piece of the players' pedigrees! The 2CDs in this set is made up of work captured on a few dates in 1953 and 1955 – some of it laidback and charming, and some of it with more than a little bit of heat and heaviness – with lots of players that include Russ Freeman on piano, Shelly Manne on drums, Jimmy Guiffre on baritone, Teddy Charles on vibes, Howard Rumsey on bass, Shorty Rogers and Maynard Ferguson on trumpets, Milt Bernhart on trombone, and others! Disc 1 titles include "I Only Have Eyes For You", "Jive At Five", "Moonlight In Vermont", Topsy", "Bernie's Tune", "Solitaire" and more. Disc 2 includes "Morgan Davis", "La Soncailli", "The Big Top", "The Duke You Say!", "Mood For Lighthouse", "Casa De Luz" and more. CD
