✨✧ 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 light wear.)

JohnnyI'm Gone (voc, inst) (with download) ... 7-inch
Now Again, 2016. New Copy ... $4.99 9.99
The best single yet from modern Afro Funk mastermind JJ Whitefield (Whitefield Brothers, Karl Hector & The Malcouns, Rodinia and more) and his storming combo Johnny! "I'm Gone" has fuzzy guitar groove that gives it sound that crosses over nicely into psychedelia without compromizing on the soulful funk at its core. Nice vocals, too – and the instrumental version on the flip. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Includes download code for this single and more in the series!)

Al WilsonSearching For The Dolphins ... LP
Soul City, 1968. Very Good- ... $1.99
A wonderful early album from soul singer Al Wilson – a well-crafted mix of modes that really stands out in late 60s pop – and which showed that Al was quite different than most of his contemporaries! The album's got some very hip production by Johnny Rivers – who was really stretching out his own sound at the time – and arrangements are by Gene Page and Marty Paich, who create a sublime blend of jazz, soul, and strings – plus a slight undercurrent of more righteous modes from the late 60s post-folk underground! In addition to straighter soul, Wilson sings a mix of hip contemporary compositions by Fred Neil, Jimmy Webb, and others – showing a depth of sound that's really wonderful. Instrumentation's by a small combo that includes Hal Blaine on drums, Larry Knechtel on keyboards, and some especially great flute from Jim Horn – whose sound here really brings some dark moments to the record. Titles include a classic version of Oscar Brown Jr's "The Snake" – which has gone onto become something of a dancefloor stormer over the years – plus the cuts "Shake Me Wake Me", "I Stand Accused", "Who Could Be Lovin You", "Brother Where Are You", "Summer Rain", "Do What You Gotta Do", and a groovy cover of Fred Neil's "The Dolphins". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a split spine & mostly split bottom seam.)

VariousBritxotica Box – Three Amazing Albums Of Primitive Pop & Savage Jazz From The Wild British Isles (3CD set) ... CD
Trunk (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99
Not exotica, but Britxotica – a cool variant of the American postwar love of the sounds of the islands and the jungles – served up here in a really hip batch of tracks from the UK scene of the late 50s and early 60s! Many of these numbers are rooted in jazz, and there's definitely some key jazz musicians in the mix – but you'll also hear lots of the percussion, global instruments, and moody orchestrations you'd find on American records by folks like Les Baxter or Martin Denny – although sometimes with an even groovier vibe, and a nice London twist – similar to some of the Croydon Municipal compilations from Cherry Red! The package is one of the coolest collections we've seen from Trunk Records in a long time – and this special box features all three of the vinyl volumes. Titles include "Zambezi" by Tony Mansell & Johnny Dankworth, "The Green Eye Of The Little Yellow God" by Harry H Corbett, "Street Of A Thousand Bongos" by Brian Fahey, "Taboo" by Sounds Incorporated, "Follow Me" by Lucille Mapp, "Jungle Drums" by Ted Heath, "The Hat" by Jerry Allen, "Cha Cha Cha Calypso" by Maxine Daniels, "Sphinx Won't Tell" by Beverley Sisters, "Caravan" by Stanley Black, "Persian Twist" by Charles Blackwell, "Marrakesh" by Tony Osborne, "Climb Up The Wall" by Yana, "Miserlou" by Stanley Black, "Turkish Coffee" by Tony Osborne, "The Sultan Of Bezaaz" by Ray Ellington, "Heatwave" by Geoff Love, "Mangoes" by Lucille Mapp, "Hawaiian Honeymoon" by Frank Weir, "Tropical Mirage" by Ron Goodwin, "Run See Jerusalem" by George Melly & Kenny Graham, "Stormy Weather" by Betty Smith, "Milk From The Coconut" by Johnny Gentle, and "Quiet Village" by Martinas & His Music.

VariousTwelve Inch 70s – More More More (3CD set) ... CD
Crimson (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $12.99
The 12" single was born in the 70s, and it instantly came of age in the disco generation – thanks to help from the sorts of wonderful grooves features in this set! The package is way more than just a batch of hit disco singles – as the range of material is nicely wide, and mixes hits with underground numbers that are well-remembered over the years – many served up here in special versions that were exclusive to the original 12" singles – with the requisite sonic punch you might expect! 3CD set features 32 tracks in all – and titles include "You Don't Have To Go (12" version)" by The Chi-Lites, "Got To Be Real (12" version)" by Cheryl Lynn, "Ain't No Stoppin Us Now (12" version)" by McFadden & Whitehead, "More More More (12" version)" by Andrea True Connection, "It's A Disco Night (12" disco single)" by Isley Brothers, "Love Train (extended)" by The O'Jays, "Keep On Dancin (12" version)" by Gary's Gang, "Taste Of Bitter Love (extended)" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Pick Me Up I'll Dance (12" mix)" by Melba Moore, "Gone Gone Gone (disco mix)" by Johnny Mathis, "Rasputin (maxi version)" by Boney M, "This Time Baby (12" version)" by Jackie Moore, "You Bet Your Love (12" version)" by Herbie Hancock, "Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick (12" version)" by Ian Dury & The Blockheads, "Giving Up Giving In (long version)" by The Three Degrees, "Strut Your Funky Stuff (UK 12" rmx)" by Frantique, "Shake Your Body Down To The Ground (12" John Luongo disco mix)" by The Jacksons, "That Funky Disco Rhythm (12" version)" by Gene Chandler, "Love Is The Message (special 12" version)" by MFSB, "We're On Our Way Home (parts 1 & 2)" by Brainstorm, and "Don't Leave Me This Way (Tom Moulton mix)(" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes.

VariousTropical Britxotica! – Polynesian Pop & Placid Jazz From The Wild British Isles ... LP
Trunk (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $23.99
The Britxotica sound is back in wonderful form – that fantastic postwar meeting of musical modes that happened every bit as much on the London scene as it did in the US! In fact, given the Caribbean and colonial ties of British culture, we might almost make the argument that some of these tunes have more of an authentic imprint than American exotica of the time – although "authentic" is hardly the name of the game here – as the music really gets its charms from the way that the sounds of the islands are reworked for the dancefloors of Soho at the end of the 50s. Titles include "Heatwave" by Geoff Love, "Mangoes" by Lucille Mapp, "Hawaiian Honeymoon" by Frank Weir, "Tropical Mirage" by Ron Goodwin, "Run See Jerusalem" by George Melly & Kenny Graham, "Stormy Weather" by Betty Smith, "Milk From The Coconut" by Johnny Gentle, and "Quiet Village" by Martinas & His Music.

✨✧ VariousBlues For Dootsie – The Blue & Dootone Sides ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of rare postwar blues from the west coast – material cut for Dootsie Williams, best known as the head of the seminal Dootone label in LA! The set offers both tracks from Dootone and Williams' rarer imprint Blue – the latter of which existed from the late 40s into the early 50s, and featured a fair bit of excellent material done in the more laidback bluesy mode of LA after the war – styles popularized by Charles Brown, Cecil Gant, and others – echoed strongly in many of the performances here. As the set rolls on into the later 50s, some of the tracks pick up a bit more of an R&B sound – but the work is still relatively unified here, thanks to a good focus on the more blues-based work on Dootone. 30 tracks in all, plus some really great notes – all at the usual high Ace level! Titles include "Rent Day" by Stormy Herman, "Richmond Blues" by Betty Hall Jones, "West Coast Baby" by Johnny Taylor & His Mellow 5, "I Got A Country Girl" by Bobby Nunn, "Everybody's Jumpin Tonight" by Dootsie Williams & His Rhythm Kings with Joe Turner, "You'd Better Come Home Baby" by Violet Hall, "The Hole In The Wall" by Cleo Brown, "Are You Ready To Go Steady" by Paul Monday, and "Katy Lee" by Fats Gaines.

✨✧ VariousLand Of 1000 Dances Vol 2 – The Ultimate Compilation Of Hit Dances 1956 to 1966 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Dancefloor stormers from one of the most fruitful periods in American music – a set of tracks that were all based around a specific style or dancing mode, but which have gone onto become some of the best-remembered grooves of the time! The collection brings together Northern Soul, group harmony tracks, blues and rockers, and even a few Latin-styled tracks as well – most of which lent their name to a dance fad that they either inspired, or were recorded to help push forward – although the music here is more than great enough to keep on going, long after the dancefloor has died down! And given the strength of these cuts, the whole thing's way more than just a collection of faddish tracks – because these tunes have lasted a lot longer than their steps on the floor. Titles on this second volume include "Let's Stomp" by Bobby Comstock, "Twine Time" by Alvin Cash, "Shake A Tail Feather" by The Five Du-Tones, "Shimmy Shimmy" by Bobby Freeman, "The Jerk" by The Larks, "Loop De Loop" by Johnny Thunder, "The Twist" by Hank Ballard, "The Crusher" by The Novas, "Bacon Fat" by Andre Williams, "Baby Workout" by Jackie Wilson, "Skate Now" by Lou Courtney, "Barefootin" by Robert Parker, "Pop Eye" by Huey Smith, "The Wobble" by Curtis Lee, "Twistin USA" by Danny & The Juniors, "The Bird's The Word" by The Rivingtons, "The Bounce" by The Olympics, "The Madison (part 1)" by Ray Bryant, "Dance With The Guitar Man" by Duane Eddy, and "The Roach" by Gene & Wendell.
