✨✧ VariousBirth Of The Groove – CTI Records ... CD
CTI, 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A well-done collection of grooves from the legendary CTI Records – home to some of the most important jazz funk of the 70s! The set does a good job of getting past the familiar hits from the label, and moves into territory that showed the complexity of the grooves being laid down – a depth that's sometimes overlooked, given the success of CTI. The nicely-priced set features 10 tracks in all – including "Hard To Face The Music" by Idris Muhammad, "September 13" by Deodato, "Canned Funk" by Joe Farrell, "Rock Steady" by Johnny Hammond, "I'm Not So Sure" by Milt Jackson, "Hurtin House" by Esther Phillips, "Sugar Free" by Hank Crawford, "Shoogie Wanna Boogie" by Dave Matthews, "I Remember Wes" by George Benson, and "Storm" by Stanley Turrentine.

✨✧ VariousWarner Pop Rock Nuggets Vol 2 – Go Away Little Girl ... CD
Warner (Japan), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Totally great tracks from a magical moment in pop music – that special period when rock had already gotten going, mainstream pop wasn't as soppy as the decade before, and soul music was starting to have a strong influence in the way both singers and groups delivered their vocals! All those qualities and more come into play here – in a fantastic series of cuts that come from deep in the Warner Brothers vaults – not just music from the main label, but also all the indies they've come to absorb over the years – labels like Colpix, Del-Fi, Gone, Mustang, Jubilee, and others who were an even greater force for music like this! The "nuggets" in the title is one way to see these cuts – material that came out in the generation right before the harder-edged material featured in the Nuggets series – but every bit as inventive and great in its own way. Volume 2 features 25 titles that include "It's Cold Outside" by The Choir, "My Baby Made Me Cry" by Jimmy Griffin, "Judy Loves Me" by Johnny Crawford, "Sure As You're Born" by Billy Storm, "Can't You Tell" by Darrell & The Oxfords, "Where Have You Been All My Life" by Gene Vincent, "Buttermilk (part 1)" by Sly, "See That Girl" by Vincent Edwards, "Good Lovin" by The Olympics, "Isn't It Just A Shame" by Kenny Wells, "Think Before You Act" by Tony Orlando, and "I Saw My Girl" by The Victorians.

✨✧ VariousBoppin By The Bayou – Rock Me Mama! – 28 Killer Diller Louisiana Tracks ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer cuts from the farthest reaches of the Louisiana scene in the early years of rock and roll – and exactly the kind of material that shows why that state was such an influential one at the time! The music here isn't just familiar rockabilly or crossover hits – and instead has this very deep, dirty vibe that brings together earlier blues, R&B, and even jazz elements – the kind of swampy mix that informed the groove in New Orleans soul, heard here with equal complexity in a range of really raw rockers! Piano triplets, snapping drums, and soulful tenor lines abound – and along with the very well-done notes, and a number of never-issued tracks, the whole thing works like some window into a lost corner of the southern scene of the time. Titles include "Bad Luck" by Danny, "Switch Blade Sam" by Jeff Daniels, "Gonna Work" by Richard Bros, "You're Jealous" by Jivin Gene, "You're Happy Now" by Little Carol, "Bayou Boogie" by Bennie Fruge, "She Left Me" by Al Ferrier, "Rock Me Mama" by Ken Lindsay, "Havin A Whole Lotta Fun" by Johnny Jano, "Rockin Fever" by Joe Carol & The Dukes Of Rhythm, and "Mama Look What Your Little Boy's Done" by Warren Storm.

VariousHey Baby – The Rockin South – 30 Rockabilly & Rock N Roll Gems From The Legendary Excello Records ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A killer collection of rare early rock work from the legendary Excello label – a famous southern imprint who cut some excellent blues, gospel, and soul in the 50s and 60s – and who did a surprisingly great job with rockabilly too! The track selection here is superb – very sharp-edge numbers that pack the same heavy punch as Excello's soul catalog – and which really reflect their "ears to the ground" approach on the southern scene at the end of the 50s – with an especially strong focus on Tennessee tracks and raw sounds from Louisiana. The sound quality and notes with the set are great – and the CD features 30 titles that include "Tell Me" by The Trends, "Honey Bee" by Tommy Angel, "Troubles Troubles" by Warren Storm, "Trapped" by Billy Fortune, "Havin A Whole Lot Of Fun" by Johnny Jano, "Hey Baby" by Al Ferrier, "Big Hearted Joe" by Lindsey Brothers, "Somebody Clipped Your Wings" by Don Haggard & The Sunset Drifters, and "Werewolf" by Gary Warren.

✨✧ JohnnyI'm Gone (voc, inst) (with download) ... 7-inch
Now Again, 2016. New Copy ... $8.99 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!)

VariousBlues For Dootsie – The Blue & Dootone Sides ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
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.

VariousDJ Andy Smith's Jam Up Twist ... CD
BGP (UK), 1950s/1960s. Used ... $6.99
Jump blues, rollicking R&B, proto rock, Northern Soul and otherwise rawly stomping stormers selected by DJ Andy Smith – a cool compilation of late 50s and 60s treasures that you might hear on one of his Jump Up Twist club nights! There's some familiar names in the set list for deep digging fans of any of the above styles, but there are no tracks that come even close to being overplayed, and each one is a winner – cuts by Wynonie Harris, Wynona Carr, Al Ferrier, Toni & The Showmen, Johnny Guitar Watson, Alton Ellis, The Skatalites, Luther Ingram, Mickey Champion, The San Francisco TKOs and more. Numbers flow one to the next with a skillful touch! Titles include "Bloodshot Eyes" by Wynonie Harris, "Ooo Little Girl" by Floyd Dixon, "Tracks To Your Mind" by The Sounds Of Lane, "Ska Beat" by Alton Ellis, "Collie Bud" by Skatalites, "Hit, Git And Split" by Young Jessie, "Make Up Your Mind" by San Francisco TKOs and more. 23 in all.

VariousLand Of 1000 Dances Vol 2 – The Ultimate Compilation Of Hit Dances 1956 to 1966 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
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.

✨✧ 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. LP, Vinyl record album
