✨✧ Johnny HammondStorm Warning ... LP
Milestone, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Recorded after his classic work with Larry Mizell, and produced by Johnny himself, but still trying to be very much in the Mizell-sounding vein. The group includes Carol Kaye on guitar, Ron Carter on bass, Ndugu on drums, and Bill Summers on percussion – and while the album is as over-the-top fantastic as Johnny's Gears LP, it's still a nice batch of California funky fusion tracks. Titles include "Lonely Dreamer", "Lady Smooth", "California Lovers", and "Quiet Storm". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cut corner.)

✨✧ VariousLa Noire Vol 3 – Baby You Got Soul ... LP
Doghouse & Bone (France), 1960s. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99
The third volume in the La Noire series of high-spirited early 60s singles – incredible stuff that bridges the style of early rhythm & blues stormers to the raw soul scenes to come – with great cuts by Bobby Bland, The Ideals, Joe Simon, Betty Everett, Willie Hightower, ZZ Hill and more! It's pivotal material, though much of it is fairly obscure to the masses these days, culled from hard-to-find singles on Duke, Arke, Goldband, Soundstage, Venessa and other labels. A prime batch of early soul – with "Yield Not To Temptation" and "Honey Child" by Bobby Bland, a great version of "Don't Cry No More" by Travis Wammack, "The Power" by Johnny Fuller, "Mojo Hanna" by The Ideals, "Whole Lotta Lovin" by The Contours, "Nobody But You" by Willie Hightower, "You Were Wrong" by ZZ Hill, "Just A Little Bit" by Tiny Topsy and more. 16 cuts in all.

VariousSound Of The Grapevine Vol 2 – 24 Modern Soul Dancers ... CD
Grapevine (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $12.99 19.99
Sublime soul from the genius compilers at Grapevine Records – an assortment of southern and modern soul tunes that all move along at a fairly nice little clip – dancefloor oriented, but not in a disco or club sort of approach. The groove here is really wonderful – honest, heartfelt, and warm – a nice change from the more upbeat approach of Northern Soul compilations, and done with a richness that features loads of great bits from the Chicago scene on down to the deepest south. At 24 tracks in all, the collection's really overflowing with great music – a heck of a bang for your buck, with a huge amount of tracks we've never seen elsewhere! Titles include "Alone Again" by Ernest Baker, "It's You" by Sex, "You Don't Know" by Bettye Jean Plummer, "Good Old Days" by The Jones Brothers, "Yesterday Today & Tomorrow" by Johnny Moore, "Leaving (radio edit)" by Bobby Cutchins, "Long Hard Road" by Bobby Wayne, "Love Stormy Weather" by Melvin Brown & James Matthews, "Man Can't Be A Man" by Bill Coday, "Love Bandit" by Patti & The Lovelites, "I'll Let You Slide" by The Saints, "I Kept On Smilin" by Cal Brandon, and "Nice & Slow" by Norma & The Heartaches.

Johnny BurnetteJohnny Burnette & The Rock N Roll Trio ... CD
Coral/Universal (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... On July 22, 2015
A seminal full length set cut by Johnny Burnette cut for Coral in the 50s – blazing stuff that's weighted heavily with hard charging rockabilly – with some dalliances with horns-embellished R&B, Marty Robbins-derived wild west numbers and points beyond! The majority of the tracks were produced by the great Owen Bradley, who cemented his genius a little bit later manning the boards for Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn, but his production prowess is on fine display here – from primitive, howling hillbilly stormers, to sweeter stuff that hints at his later work with Patsy. Titles include "Sweet Love On My Mind", "Lonesome Train", "Honey Hush", "Train Kept A-Rollin", "I Just Found Out", "Chains Of Love", "I Love You So", and "Rock Billy Boogie". CD

✨✧ Johnny Hodges & Wild Bill DavisBlue Pyramid ... LP
Verve, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A sweet little Verve set from the team of Wild Bill Davis and Johnny Hodges – 2 older players who both seemed to find new life in their music when working together! On Davis' part, the organist hits a more open, more modern approach to his instrument – one that clearly puts him at the level of some of his younger contemporaries on the soul jazz scene of the 60s. On Hodges' part, the pairing makes for a sometimes more relaxed style – and one that really helps him break out of the shadows of Ellington with a range of new settings and sounds! Other players here include Lawrence Brown, Jimmy Hamilton, Billy Butler, and Jimmy Jones –- all in varying arrangements, some small combo, some larger groups directed by Jones. Titles include "Pyramid", "Blues For Madeline", "When I'm Feelin Kinda Blue", "Rabbit Out Of The Hat", "Hash Brown", "At Dawn", and "Stormy Weather". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has light wear and a DJ sticker on the front.)
