Joe CainLatin Explosion (aka Latin Au Go Go) ... LP
Time, 1962. Very Good ... $19.99
One of the few albums ever issued as a leader by the great Joe Cain – a wonderful Latin arranger with a really mad ear for a groove! Cain's approach is often quite choppy in the rhythms – short, hard, and very very sharp – then topped with sweeter, jazzier lines – played on this set by Clark Terry on trumpet, Jerome Richardson on tenor and flute, and Frank Anderson on piano and some especially nice organ lines! Percussion is super-heavy throughout – played by Jose Mangual, Chocolate, and Marcelino Valdes with a vibe that's just right for the rhythms – and additional support is from Cachao on bass and Herbie Lovelle on drums. The grooves are incredible – quite different than anything else on Mainstream Records at the time, and even different than most of the New York scene – and titles include the amazing "It's A Mad Mad Mad Mambo (parts 1 & 2) (also known elsewhere as "Mambo Au Go Go") – a cut that sounds like some sort of crazy avant garde percussion banging, all made to keep in time to a mambo beat, with jazzy organ solos over the top. Other titles include "Mongo Mongo Baby", "Papa Bajo", "Que Paso", "Tanga Pa Katanga", and "Chunga A Go Go". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing.)

CachaoCachao's Gonna Make You Dance (2016 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Grossoi (Spain), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP ... $30.99
Classic Latin sounds from Cachao – the Cuban bassist who helped invent so many important styles at the end of the 50s! As you might guess from the title, the collection focuses on some of Cachao's most groovy, most upbeat tracks – largely recorded in Havana under his own leadership, but also including some tracks with Chico O'Farrill at the helm, and a great New York session with Joe Cain too! About half the set is in a tight, fast descarga mode – with lots of jazzy instrumentation – and titles include "El Manisero", "Pa Pa Bajo", "Trombon Criollo", "Descarga Naniga", "Pamparana", "Descarga General", "Descarga Cubana", "Cogele El Golpe", "Que Paso", "Descarga No 2", and "La Floresta".

Freddie RodriguezLa Versatilidad De Freddie Rodriguez ... LP
United Artists, 1967. Very Good ... $11.99
As the title might imply, this is a varied set of grooves from Latin guitarist Freddie Rodriguez. Some of the tracks are more like pop guitar instrumentals, with an electric 60's feel to them. But the best cuts are some nice Latin groovers, with a good hard sounds from Freddie's guitar, and a guitar-based groove that sounds different than the usual Latin groover. The best cuts include "Lu Lu Boogaloo", "New York Is Boss", "Banana Baby", and the totally excellent "Swing Para Ti", a cool 2 part track written by Joe Cain with a good hard groove to it!

Clark TerryAngyumaluma Bongliddleany Nannyany Awhan Yi! ... LP
Mainstream, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $2.99
Forget any biases you might have against Clark Terry – this album is a super-hip killer! The arrangements were handled by Joe Cain, a mad mad mad Latin arranger who brings a strange sense of rhythm to the session, and a unique way of inserting instrumental flourishes. There's some nice organ and firey piano, Jerome Richardson plays excellent bits on flute and sax, and Vince Bell and Eric Gale both play guitars. Jose Mangual and Willie Bobo kick it in with percussion, and Terry plays in a tight jaunty style, with occasional mad vocal moments. Titles include "El Blues Latino", "The Cat From Cadiz", "Rum & Mumbles", and "Never". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light stains with wrinkling and heavy wear on the bottom seam.)

✨✧ Janet BraceSpecial Delivery ... LP
ABC, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An obscure little album of jazz vocals – but a great one! Janet Brace has a style that's similar to Jackie Cain or Chris Connor during the same time – kind of light and floating, but with a deeper sadness that makes the tracks stand out from the usual vocal fluff – a rich sort of feeling, but one that's never overly sentimental or romantic either! The backings help a lot to set the mood – handled by a quartet led by Don Elliott on vibes, trumpet, and flugelhorn – and featuring Joe Puma or Barry Galbraith on guitar, Bob Corwin on piano, Vinnie Burke on bass, and Jimmy Campbell on drums. Really wonderful material from that magical 1956 year, when ABC recorded so many great jazz sessions – with titles that include "You Forgot Your Gloves", "Skylark", "I'm A Person Too", "Easy Street", "Happy In Love", and "It Could Happen To You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some ring & edge wear, a corroded stain on one corner, and split seams held with clear tape.)

✨✧ CandidoThousand Finger Man ... CD
Solid State/Blue Note, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Stone lost Latin funk! This is Candido's rarest – and it's a killer batch of conga-heavy grooves, recorded in the late 60s for Solid State, and featuring a very groovy set of mod Latin arrangements by Joe Cain. The band features organ, guitar, bass, horns, and some upfront conga solos from Candido. Tracks are longer than usual for this sort of album – and there's a lot of strange elements floating through the tracks, in a very nice way! Titles include "Thousand Finger Man", which has some especially firey conga breakdowns, plus "Jump Back", "Soul Limbo", "Tony's Theme (from Lady In Cement)", and "Come On Choo Choo Train". CD

✨✧ Gilberto Monroig & Bobby CapoGilberto Y Bobby ... LP
Salsoul, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the mellower Latin albums on the Salsoul label from the 70s – as one side features Gilberto singing lead vocals, the other features Bobby, and both sides are done in a mellow romantic vein. Joe Cain did the arrangements, Bobby Capo wrote all songs, and titles include "Tu Diario", "Lo Que Ansio Yo", "Salud Carino", "Asi Era Mi Padre", "Fui Mas Leal", "Por Celos De Mi Amigo", "Los Amantes", and "Glorinha".

✨✧ Afro Percussion EnsembleSoul Of A People ... LP
Trolley Car, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A killer set of spare percussion from this little-known group – a set that's recorded with a very raw, rootsy style – and no other adornment at all! The instrumentation on the set is very spare – nearly all percussion, and performed on claves, bata drums, and congas – plus additional chants from the group, which really intensifies the energy of the whole thing! The set was put together by Joe Cain in a really echoey way – one that recalls the best of the 60s Afro drum experimental sessions – but even without some of the jazz currents on some of those albums, just a stronger focus on West African and Latin elements. Titles include "Drum Festival", "Spirit Song", "Rhythm Of The Forest", "Jungle Drums", and "Drums Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mauricio SmithBitter Acid ... LP
Mainstream, 1967. Used ... Out Of Stock
A killer album of hard instrumental Latin soul tracks – one of the few albums ever done by funky reed player Mauricio Smith! On the set, Smith plays flute, alto, and soprano sax – and the record's filled with short little groovers that have a nice choppy sound, and lots of heavy conga work by Marcelino Valdes and Victor Pantoja! Other instrumentation includes organ, trumpet, and guitar – blasting out with some really mad rhythms, and very much in keeping with the crazy 60s work of Joe Cain, who arranged the whole thing. The album's got a sound that's very much in keeping with it's funky ghetto cover – and titles include "Hot Peppers", "Viva Guajira", "More Bread", "Mambo For Mauricio", "Puttin You Down", and "El Green Hornet". Excellent! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Cover has split top & bottom seams.)

✨✧ Johnny CashJohnny Cash At Folsom Prison (remastered edition) ... CD
Columbia/Legacy, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest live albums ever, and probably THE best album Johnny Cash ever recorded, properly reissued with the original sequence restored and uncensored! In 1969 Cash had more angst than you could shake a stick at – he just kicked drugs, and he hadn't had a big hit in years, so his respectful and thoughtful empathy for the audience of inmates not only cemented his persona as the real deal, but carries an air of dizzying emotion throughout the set. Appropriately filled with his darkest tunes, Folsom is one of the few cases in which a live recording of a hitmakers catalog is stronger and more vital than the studio versions. Includes "Folsom Prison Blues", "Dark As A Dungeon", "Cocaine Blues", "25 Minutes To Go", "Orange Blossom Special", "The Long Black Veil", "Dirty Old Egg-Suckin' Dog", "Joe Bean", plus "Jackson" and "Give My Love To Rose" featuring June Carter. 2 previously unissued songs – "Joe Bean" and "The Legend Of John Henry's Hammer".

✨✧ VariousFat Possum Records – Not The Same Old Blues Crap Vol 3 ... LP
Fat Possum, Early 2000s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The third in Fat Possum's Not The Same Old Blues Crap series – and a pretty substantial creative left turn in some ways, though still focused on raw, hardscrabble blues! Fat Possum figureheads RL Burnside and T-Model Ford are in the mix, as you'd hope, along with Charles Caldwell, Little Freddie King and other blues heavies, but it's also got some reverent cuts by (then) upstarts The Black Keys, the Iggy & The Stooges and even Lyrics Born – showing the range of influence the one time unknown blues figures Fat Possum championed at the time had on various cats. Includes "Hadn't I Been Good To You" by Charles Caldwell, "Set You Free" by the pre-superstar Black Keys, "I Found Out" by Nathaniel Mayer, Juinior Kimbrough's "You Better Run" as covered by Iggy & The Stooges, "Crack Head Joe" by Little Freddie King, "Goin' Down South" by RL Burnside feat Lyrics Born, "Cocaine Bill" by Kenny Brown, "Pushin' My Luck" by Robert Belfour, "Goodbye Slim Harpo" by Robert Pete Williams and "Bad Man" by T-Model Ford.

✨✧ Lewis MorleyI To Eye (hardcover) ... Book
T&G, 2011. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
50 years' worth of photographs from Lewis Morley – all presented in a super-heavy book that contains over 350 pages of vintage images! The work here really spans the gamut, but is all linked by Morley's beautiful eye for composition, which is equally well-suited to posed portraits and candid shots on the street – both of which dominate the book, and include images from London in the 50s and 60s, 60s New York and Paris, and even some protests in London – as well as loads of famous celebrity portraits. The cover image is Morley's legendary shot of Christine Keeler – and the book also features great shots of Clint Eastwood, Donovan, Sammy Davis Jr, John Cleese, Marsha Hunt, Salvador Dali, Jacqueline Du Pre, Michael Caine, Joe Orton, Ray Davies, Tom Jones, and dozens of others. 390 pages, hardcover, and a real steal at this price!

✨✧ VariousR&B Singles Collection Vol 3 – Outta Sight Red Hot Rhythm & Blues ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Smoking work from the early years of soul music – that time when the style was just coming into its own, through equal parts jazz, R&B, blues, and gospel! The cuts here are those which might be called R&B in another setting, but definitely work together to inform the roots of soul – all in the style that's carried on by the later 60s reissues on the Outta Sight label. Lots of the cuts have the feel of some of the best Jazzman/Jukebox Jam reissues in recent years – a very different take on R&B than previous generations of collectors have explored. Titles include "I Get The Feeling" by Eli Lee, "Let's Start A Romance" by Little Joe Hinton, "Hard Times" by Jacki Ross, "Cherringale" by Ed Townsend, "Twist 62" by Jerry McCain, "My Book" by Bruce Cloud, "The Girl That Radiates The Charm" by June Alexander, and "Dynamite" by Big Jay Bush & The Houserockers.
