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.

We may be in the minority here, but we're still fans of that mid-80's Pop Art sound. The album is a collection of his earlier single on Pop Art, with "Bring The Beat Back", "Stupid Fresh" and the novelty cuts "Yo Mutha" and "Do The Fila" the answer to Joeski Love's "Pee Wee Dance."

Too ShortBorn To Mack ... LP
Dangerous/Jive, 1988. Very Good+ ... $29.99
One of the quintessential albums that put the Bay Area on the hip hop map, and the first major label full length from one of the west coast's most prolific rappers. The minimalist sound works SO well here – there's not much in the mix besides drum machine, a bit of bass and the occasional cut or scratch – all the better to allow Too Short's street tales and profane rhymes pave the ground with singular power and charisma. Tracks include "Freaky Tales", "Partytime", "You Know What I Mean", "Dope Fiend Beat", "Little Girls", "The Universal Mix" and "Playboy $hort II". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Boogie Down ProductionsGhetto Music: The Blueprint of Hip Hop ... LP
Jive (UK), 1989. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic Boogie Down Productions circa '89 – with prime street poetry from KRS, perfectly raw beats and overall peak end of the 80s production! Blueprint is an apt title for a couple reasons – the beats aren't what we'd call spare, but they're raw and unvarnished – a perfect framework for KRS's clear, concise and tough rhymes. It's also the blueprint for some of the best, toughest, street conscious hip hop to come. It's a unique snapshot of the time, too, coming at the crossroads of hip hop's rise from the 80s streets to the mainstream, with KRS One standing for realness right there at the brink. Includes "Jack Of Spades", "The Blueprint", "You Must Learn", "Who Protects Us From You?", "Why Is That?", "Breath Control", and "Bo! Bo! Bo!". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hugh MasekelaTechno Bush ... LP
Jive, 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Overall, the sound on this album's very 80s, with lots of electro and synth moments poking through, and a very disco base to the rhythm. The best example of that is the big single, "Don't Go Lose It Baby", an awesome club track, popular with the deep house heads and loft scene here in Chicago, and elsewhere too, if we're not mistaken. A number of the other tracks have the same insistent pulse, but often with a more overt African influence in the sound. Like some of Masekela's other records, his trumpet playing takes a back seat to the vocals. Also includes "The Seven Riffs Of Africa Medley", "Motlalepula", "Getting Fat In Africa", "Pula Ea Na", "African Secret Society" and "U-Dwi". LP, Vinyl record album

Jive, 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The album that made Billy Ocean a superstar for a little while, one that had a HUGE couple of years on the charts, even longer service as a snapshot of its era, and is now one that we can look at freshly and appreciate for all of the unstoppably catchy pop soul craft that made it so massive in the first place! Billy's earlier Caribbean inflected pop and R&B was good stuff that deserved a bigger audience and boy did it ever find him with the mid 80s hits "Caribbean Queen", the killer ballad "Suddenly" and the crazy fun "Loverboy". Other tracks include "Mystery Lady", "Lucky Man", "Dancefloor" and "If I Should Lose You". LP, Vinyl record album

Classic quiet storm material from Glenn Jones – smooth, mellow, with a snaking drum machine laying down the groove on most of the cuts, hitting hard with splashy beats that envelop Glenn's sweet lyrical approach. Titles include "All I Need To Know", "Oh Girl", "That Night Mood", "Living In The Limelight", "At Last", "We've Only Just Begun", and "It's All In The Game".

✨✧ Miles DavisNefertiti ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Dark genius from the always-amazing Miles Davis Quintet of the 60s – a set that's a bit more subtle than some of the group's other efforts, but no less powerful – and virtually a blueprint for countless changes to come in jazz during the next few decades! The interplay of Davis' trumpet, Wayne Shorter's tenor, and Herbie Hancock's piano is worth the price of admission alone – a force that seems to flow of its own direction, pulled three ways equally, but always emerging as a sound greater than its parts. And adding in the subtle pulse of Ron Carter on bass and nearly melodic drums of Tony Williams, the sound is even more incredible – a well-crafted and evocative sound that's far more than jazz! Titles include versions of Herbie's "Riot" and "Madness", Shorter's "Nefertiti" and "Pinocchio", and Williams' "Hand Jive". LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1967. Very Good ... $4.99
A nice live cooker from Wild Bill Davis! This album was recorded at Grace's Little Belmont, a club in Atlantic City in 1967, a place where organist Davis had played almost every summer for over twenty years. He is joined by Clayton Robert Brown on tenor sax, James "Dickie" Thompson on guitar and Robert Joseph Durham on drums. Some of the tracks are Davis or Davis and Bob Brown originals and they include "Let It Be", "Adoration", and "Up Top". Other songs are "Manha de Carnaval" from Black Orpheus, "Jive Samba", "Soft Winds", "Little Tracy", "Straight No Chaser", and "Cute" among others. LP, Vinyl record album

Ebony Rhythm Funk CampaignWatchin' You, Watchin' Me ... LP
Chi Sound/United Artists, 1976. Very Good ... $7.99
A perfect example of the old adage that the funkier the band's name is, the less funky their music will be! Not that the group's really that bad or anything – they're just not the all-out party jam you'd expect from an ensemble with "ebony" and "funk" in their name. The groove is more smooth funky soul than anything else, and the record was produced by Carl Davis for his Chi-Sound imprint, and it's got a similar sound to some of the other groups on the label, like Manchild. Tracks include "Jive Du Du", "You Got Me Rushin", "Where You Lead", "Syncopated Madness", and "Watchin You, Watchin Me". LP, Vinyl record album

BB KingHis Best – The Electric BB King ... LP
Bluesway, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
BB King at his late 60s best – working here in the company of producers Johnny Pate and Quincy Jones, and serving up a great blend of blues and soul in the process! The set's less a "best of", than a collection of ABC work that doesn't seem to be on the other full albums of the time – mostly produced by Johnny Pate, with those great Chicago soul touches that helped his work with King really cross new boundaries – and finally give BB the kind of full, forceful approach that Bobby Blue Bland had been getting for years. The Quincy Jones cuts are two from the soundtrack to For Love Of Ivy – both pretty groovy, with a socking soul punch – and titles on the full album include "Tired Of Your Jive", "Don't Answer The Door", "The BB Jones", "Paying The Cost To Be The Boss", "All Over Again", "I Don't Want You Cutting Off Your Hair", "Sweet Sixteen", "Meet My Happiness", and "You Put It On Me".

The set's a bit thin on notes, but there's some great tracks overall – and titles include "Screamin", "Jive Samba", "Buzzin Round", "Mellow Gravy", "Grease Monkey", and "Soulful Drums".

Flora Purim500 Miles High At Montreux ... LP
Milestone, 1974. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $4.99
One of Flora Purim's 70s classics – an album recorded with that soaring breezy vocal style that she virtually invented – heard here before it got too old, and too copied by other singers! The set's a live one, filled with lots of energy – and recorded before a very enthusiastic crowd at the 1974 Montreux Jazz Fest. Players include David Amaro on guitar, Pat Rebillot and Wagner Tiso on electric piano and organ, Ron Carter on bass, Roberta Silva on drums, Airto on a range of percussion – and guest vocals and a bit of guitar from Milton Nascimento on one track! Airto, Nascimento, and Tiso arranged the set – and tracks include "O Cantador", "Bridge", "500 Miles High", "Cravo E Canela", "Baia", "Uri", and "Jive Talk". LP, Vinyl record album

Pure vocal magic – featuring the lovely Flora Purim at the height of her California powers – working in a sublime mix of jazz, fusion, and Brazilian rhythms – a sound that she virtually invented! The group on the set is one of her greatest of the time – with players that include Joe Henderson, George Duke, and Stanley Clarke – coming together with some great Brazilian percussion from husband Airto. The tracks are tight and jazzy – and include "Light As A Feather", "Dr. Jive (parts 1 & 2)", "Butterfly Dreams", "Moon Dreams", and "Dindi". This is the stuff that virtually defined the Brazilian/American groove of the 70s – and it's still light years ahead of any of Flora's many imitators! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Zoot SimsDown Home (70s pressing) ... LP
Bethlehem, 1960. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A really great little set from Zoot Sims – earthy, and almost a bit more fragile than much of his other work! There's a real "down home" feel to the whole record – as Zoot blows comfortably and easily in a quartet with Dave McKenna on piano, George Tucker on bass, and Dannie Richmond on drums – making a rare non-Mingus appearance for the set! Zoot's horn has a bit more dirt in the tone than on some of his "cleaner" sessions – a style that we like a lot, and which really fits the feeling of the set. Titles include "Doggin' Around", "Avalon", "Jive At Five", "I've Heard That Blues", and "Goodnite Sweetheart". LP, Vinyl record album

Juke Box Jam (UK), Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. Sealed ... $49.99
The great second volume of this genre-defining series – a set that looks at a really unique strain of R&B in the 50s – a special sort of groove that mixed together jazz, Latin, and other soulful styles! There's plenty of percussion on most of these numbers, but there's also lots of bluesy elements too – electric guitar, tenor, and firey piano – mixed with soulful vocals that leap wonderfully out of the vivid arrangements – at a level that really makes these tunes pretty darn unique! Some cuts have a vibe that's like jump blues, taking a drink of 50s Latin – while others almost have a Spanish Harlem sort of hybrid, but years before the later Latin Soul scene – a really vibrant mix of modes that keeps things exciting throughout. Titles include "All I Have Is You" by Johnny Oliver, "I Love Your Many Ways" by Lincoln Chase, "Calypso Blues" by Zilla Mayes, "Jimmy's Jive" by Jimmy Nolen, "All Night Long" by Four Blazes, "She Wants To Mambo" by The Chanters, "Satisfied" by Billy Emerson, "Chano" by Ron Rico with Sax Kari, "Later Gator" by Freddie Mitchell, "Denga Denga" by Ashton Savoy, "Gee I Love You" by John McKinnye & The Premiers, and "Summertime" by Red Saunders. Totally amazing package, too – in an "album", like a set of vintage 78s – with 6 pieces of 10" vinyl that play at 45rpm for excellent sound, and a very cool booklet of notes, too. Also includes four tracks not on the other 2LP or CD sets! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Michael FranksArt Of Tea ... LP
Warner, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A seminal classic from Michael Franks – one of those records that's almost a whole genre unto itself, and which set a whole new tone for the male voice in American music! The style here is light and jazzy – almost an evolution of modes first begun by Kenny Rankin, and served up here with a similarly compressed production style that really brings out the jazz in the instrumentation. Players include Michael Brecker, Joe Sample, Larry Carlton, and David Sanborn – all sounding great with a bit of added strings from Nick DeCaro. But the real star of the set is clearly Franks – whose light vocals and creative lyrics sound wonderful next to the electric piano on the set. Titles include "Eggplant", "Monkey See Monkey Do", "Jive", "Mr Blue", "Popsicle Toes", "St Elmos Fire", "I Don't Know Why I'm So Happy I'm Sad", and "Sometimes I Just Forget To Smile".

✨✧ Herbie MannLatin Mann – Afro To Bossa To Blues ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent album of Latin material from Herbie Mann – and proof that he's equally great in just about any setting! The album's a rare Columbia Records outing from Herbie – but it's easily one of his greatest of the 60s, thanks to some really smoking arrangements from Oliver Nelson – plus an all-star cast of players that includes Carmell Jones, Dave Pike, Jimmy Heath, Patato Valdez, Willie Bobo, Charlie Palmieri, and a young Chick Corea on piano! Tracks are short, tight, and very rhythmic – grooving in a snapping approach to Latin that's filled with plenty of soul, but which also features plenty of jazzy touches as well. A few tunes here are familiar, but they're given wonderful new treatment by Herbie and Nelson – and the record easily beats most Verve or Impulse sessions of this type at their own game! Tracks include "Bijou", "Ave Maria Morena", "Watermelon Man", "Interlude", "Let's Boom Chitty Boom", "Senor Blues", "Jungle Fantasy", and "Jive Samba". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the last great records by Charles Mingus – a set of extremely compelling original compositions, played by a fresh group of younger players, plus a few older masters! The record's got a fire and sense of emotion that's missing from a number of other 70s Mingus sessions – and it's one of the few later albums we'd easily rank right up there with his late 50s and early 60s classics! Orchestrations were partially arranged and conducted with help from Sy Johnson – and soloists include James Moody and Bobby Jones on tenor, Charles McPherson on alto, Snookie Young and Lonnie Hillyer on trumpet, and Roland Hanna on piano. Titles include "The Shoes Of The Fisherman's Wife Are Some Jive Ass Slippers", "Adagio Ma Non Troppo", "The Chill of Death", and "The I Of Hurricane Sue". LP, Vinyl record album

A late 60's issue of Lord Buckley's rare early recordings for the Vaya label in LA – groundbreaking sides that predated most comedy albums, and which also had a huge influence on the spoken word recordings of the beat generation! The tracks were recorded live, with Buckley talking in a mixture of jive and gibberish that may well have marked him as the first true hipster on record – and which also puts him in a lineage that's somewhere between Slim Gaillard and Babs Gonzales. Titles include "The Nazz", "Jonah And The Whale", "Nero", "Gettysburg Address", "Marc Antony's", and "Funeral Notation" LP, Vinyl record album

The group is raw, rough, and plenty swinging – the great Pat Martino on guitar, Carl Wilson on organ, and Joe Hadrick on drums – plus additional trumpet from Frank Robinson, who really blasts out nicely in the frontline with Jackson! The rhythms are amazing – very snapping and catchy, with almost an early modal soul jazz vibe – and titles include a great long version of "Jive Samba", which sounds very similar to Jackson's amazing Prestige classic "Nother'n Like Thuther'n" – plus the cuts "I Wish You Love", "Monkey Hips", "Aw Right Do It", and "Jackson's Action".

Asylum, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the stellar earlier albums from Tom Waits – with lots of slower, piano-led bluesy and jazzy ballads – on top of the jivey, gravelly charisma of his voice and songwriting. The mix of that gruff voice and the fairly pretty instrumentation is prime Waits, from this period. This is the 40s, 50s and 60s-inspired Waits at his near-finest. Includes "Cinny's Waltz", "Muriel", "I Never Talk To Strangers", "A Sight For Sore Eyes", "Barber Shop", Foreign Affair" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
