✨✧ Johnny HammondStorm Warning ... LP
Milestone, 1977. Very Good+ ... $5.99
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 and a gold promo stamp.)

VariousBoppin By The Bayou – Rock Me Mama! – 28 Killer Diller Louisiana Tracks ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
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.

✨✧ VariousSouth Texas Rhythm & Soul Revue Vol 2 – From The Vaults Of Crazy Cajun Records ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
The great state of Texas turned out plenty of soul records in the 60s – and some of the best of them came from the hands of Huey P Meux – the legendary talent who's responsible for all the work on this set! Huey was also known as the Crazy Cajun – also the name of a label on which some of these cuts appeared – and his work shares a bit of the deeper, swampier sounds you might expect from Louisiana soul of the time, mixed with the rich bluesy currents that Texas had been turning out since the postwar years! The result is some stellar music that never fully got its due back in the day – tracks that maybe had a bit of regional fame, but never hit as big as sounds from Memphis or Muscle Shoals, which makes this collection such a great discovery – rare tracks by Texas artists, and other talents who were pulled down near the Houston scene for these recordings – all presented in a set of well-chosen tracks with some mighty nice notes. Titles include "Too Good To Be True" by The Traits, "Half A Man" by Charles Berry, "The Bad Times Make The Good Times" by Warren Storm, "T'Ain't It The Truth" by Jean Knight, "Strange Love" by Eugene Gamble, "All About Love" by Big Sam, "I'm Losing You" by Henry Moore, "Total Disaster" by Lee Maye, "At Your Wedding" by Jackie Paine, "You're Losing Me" by Jo Jo Benson, "Spunky Onions" by Johnny Adams, and "The Pleasures Of My Woman" by Rocky Gil & The Bishops.

Johnny Hodges & Wild Bill DavisBlue Pyramid ... LP
Verve, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $5.99
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
(MGM pressing with deep groove. Cover is great.)
