✨✧ Johnny WilliamsJohn Goldfarb, Please Come Home! ... CD
Film Score Monthly, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful soundtrack – originally written for a 1965 film that starred Shirley MacLaine in a madcap action comedy! The setting of part of the film is the Middle East, and for the movie, Williams scored some tunes that have a great 60s spoof sort of feel – with lots of groovy rhythms, tight catchy themes, and an overall bouncy and fun sort of feel. But to keep with the setting of the film, he also wrote in a whole bunch of kitschy takes on "eastern" styles of music – almost a schlocky 60s parody of Middle Eastern music, handled with loads of cool instrumental touches! Titles include "Snake Dance", "The King Primps", "Goldfarb Focuses", "The Plot Begins", "Fawz TV", "The Red Sea", "Nothing Ever Works", "Mongoose Blues", "The Football Game", and "Pom Poms". 27 tracks in all – and limited to 3000 copies!

✨✧ Ann Margret/Marty PaichSongs From The Swinger & Other Swingin Songs ... LP
RCA, 1966. Near Mint- ... $34.99
Ann-Margret at her grooviest – singing the super-groovy theme from The Swinger – perhaps her greatest film appearance ever! There's a mod bounce to the album that goes way way beyond any of Ann's other albums of the period – thanks to arrangements from Marty Paich, Quincy Jones, and Johnny Williams – all of whom put a nice sort of lilt in the backings, and manage to capture Ann at her sexiest. The title tune "The Swinger" is worth the price of entry itself – as it's a catchy, guitar-twanging number delivered in an incredibly breathy mode – supported by 2 great instrumentals from the film as well, "Swinger's Holiday" and "Kelly's Dance". But even on more conventional numbers, Ann's got a great sound here – bringing whole new sexy life to tracks that include "I Wanna Be Loved", "By Myself", "I Just Want To Make Love To You", "More", and "Cute". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny CashMan Comes Around – American IV ... CD
American, 2002. Used ... $3.99
Cash's fourth volume of stark, sparely-arranged studio recordings for producer/set list provider Rick Rubin. As Johnny gets on in the years his always haunting voice, like Bob Dylan's, is weighted by age, but the heavily-breathed delivery only adds to the ghostly quality of the increasingly dark tunes. With this fourth set in the series we're far past being surprised by the choices of material – this time Cash conjures up spiritual takes on Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus", Trent Reznor's "Hurt", Lennon/McCartney's "In My Life", and more traditional material like Hank Williams' "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" and the eternally underrated Marty Robbins' "Big Iron". You can't forget that Cash's pen is still pretty sharp, too, as the really spooky imagery in the title track and others testify. The accompaniment includes the great Randy Scruggs, Beck/Tom Waits guitarist Smokey Hormel, Marty Stuart, Glen Campell, and backing vocals by Nick Cave and Fiona Apple. Another great one from the greatest! CD

Booker ErvinBooker 'N Brass ... CD
Pacific Jazz, 1967. Used ... $22.99
Although the "with brass" tag of this one might make you think it's a hokey big band album, the record is actually a far-reaching modernist session that has Book's edgey tenor fronting a large-ish group filled with some of the best trumpet and trombone players of his generation – including Freddie Hubbard, Charles Tolliver, Richard Williams, and Johnny Coles. The rhythm section is pretty darn great too – and includes Lenny McBrownie, Reggie Johnson, and Kenny Barron. The presence of all of these soul jazz modernists keeps the set from falling into any of the cliches you might expect, and the album's an extremely fresh batch of tracks that is one of the last albums Booker ever recorded. Titles include "LA After Dark", "Salt Lake City", and "Baltimore After Dark". CD

Herbie HancockPrisoner (75th Anniversary Edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
A nice late Blue Note change from Herbie Hancock – a very different album than his previous sets for the label – in that it features a slightly larger group, and a sound that really points the way towards his directions in the 70s! There's a slightly ambitious feel to some of these cuts – not in a way that's over-arranged, but just a new sort of thinking for Herbie's kind of groove – a mode that's partially informed by the seriousness of 60s jazz soundtracks, but which also has the beginnings of some more righteous modes of expression too. Players are all great – and include Joe Henderson on tenor and flute, Johnny Coles on flugelhorn, Garnett Brown on trombone, Hubert Laws on flute, Jerome Richardson on bass clarinet, Buster Williams on bass, and Tootie Heath on drums. Herbie plays both acoustic and electric piano – using the latter here in one of his first recordings on the instrument – and titles include "Firewater", "I Have A Dream", "The Prisoner", and "He Who Lives In Fear".

Illinois JacquetSwing's The Thing (Swings The Thing/Cool Rage) ... CD
Verve/Lonehill (Spain), 1956/1958. Used ... $15.99
Great 50s Verve work from saxophonist Illinois Jacquet – 2 albums back to back on one CD! First up is Swing's The Thing", one of the greatest of the small-group sessions by Jacquet for Verve – and one of the hardest to find! The album is unique in that the songs are longer than usual for Jacquet, and that the band is quite small – really only a sextet, with Jimmy Jones on piano, Ray Brown on bass, Roy Eldridge on trumpet, Herb Ellis on guitar, and Jo Jones on drums. Tracks include "Las Vegas Blues", "Have You Met Miss Jones", "Lullaby Of The Leaves", and "Achtung". After this, the CD features 4 more numbers that were recorded in 1958 for Verve, but never appeared until much later on the collection Cool Rage – a really unique quartet date that has Jacquet working with Wild Bill Davis on organ, Kenny Burrell on guitar, and Johnny Williams on drums – in a mode that almost points the way towards later work by Illinois on Argo. Titles include "No Sweat", "Flying Home", "The Fluke", and "Nite Out" – and the CD also features a bonus take of "Robbin's Nest" from another album. CD

Johnny MathisYou Light Up My Life/Mathis Magic ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1978/1979. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
A pair of late 70s albums from Johnny Mathis – back to back on a single CD! You Light Up My Life is mellow magic from Johnny Mathis – a late 70s set that updates his older style for a crossover audience in adult contemporary! The style is smooth and polished, but never so much so that Johnny's amazing voice can't shine through – thanks to soulful arrangements from Gene Page, who'd done plenty of work with hipper soul artists in the 70s – and Deniece Williams makes a great guest appearance on a number of tracks – really bringing Mathis into that duet style that would hit even bigger for the singer in the 80s. Titles include "If You Believe", "To Much Too Little Too Late", "How Deep Is Your Love", "It Was Almost Like A Song", and "Till Love Touches Your Life". Mathis Magic has a nice sort of bite at times – Johnny breaking out of just mellow modes, and getting a bit of inspiration from Gene Page, who handled the arrangements for the set. A few tunes almost kick into a clubby sort of vibe, in which Johnny's vocals soar nicely – and titles include "Love", "Night & Day", "My Body Keeps Changing My Mind", "No One But The One You Love", "To The Ends Of The Earth", and "Heart Soul Body & Mind".

Johnny OtisJohnny Otis Shows – Vintage 1950s Broadcasts From Los Angeles ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 50s. Used ... $8.99
Totally cool stuff – a set of 50s radio broadcasts from LA R&B legend Johnny Otis! And wait, before you say "radio broadcasts? Bet the quality's not good" – don't! The work on here is really great, and the sound quality is equally good – and together, the set offers a totally different side of Otis than you'd hear on the studio recordings. These recordings not only have Johnny grooving with his great 50s band, but they also feature a bit of radio patter, advertisements, and other spoken bits – showing just how plugged in Johnny was to the south central community. Way more than just an excellent set of 50s R&B, the CD's a brilliant document of the time – with a level of quality that makes it even more tremendous. Performers include Johnny, The Dominoes, Marie Adams, The Mermaids, Larry Williams, and The Penguins – and tunes include "Sweet Love", "One Sweet Letter", "Bum On A Log", "Mama He Treats Your Daughter Mean", "Not Too Young", "Justine", "The Dummy", and "Dirty Dishes".

Columbia/Vocalion (UK), 1963. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the jazziest albums that Andre Previn cut during his early 60s years at Columbia Records – a set that has Previn's piano alongside bigger backings from Johnny Williams – who's at his most sprightly soundtrack best for the record! Things are a lot more upbeat and swinging than some of the other Previn records of the period – which have more of a mood music vibe – and the whole thing has a vibrant feel throughout – on titles that include "Summertime", "Stella By Starlight", "I Only Have Eyes For You", "Around The World", "The Way You Look Tonight", and "When You Wish Upon A Star".

Zoot SimsZoot (Argo) (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Argo (Japan), 1956. Used ... $9.99
An obscure session for Zoot – but a nice one! The group's a quartet – with Johnny Williams on piano, Gus Johnson on drums, and Knobby Totah on bass – and Zoot's blowing in an unfettered setting that reminds us a bit of Sonny Stitt in similar settings at the same time! Tracks are shortish, but there's still plenty of room for Zoot to work in a style that's up there with his best bop recordings of the 50s – and at some level, the record's got the same sharp edge as Sims' best early sides for Prestige – but perhaps goes them one better with an added sense of tightness and maturity. The titles are pretty fresh too – and include "Poinciana", "55th & State", "920 Special", "Gus' Blues", and "Bohemia After Dark". CD

Jimmy SmithJimmy Smith In A Plain Brown Wrapper ... LP
Verve, 1971. Very Good ... $4.99
A pretty great funk album from Jimmy – and very different than his other jazz work at the time! The record was produced and arranged by soulster Larry Williams, and most tracks have these raspy vocals that we're not sure are Larry's or Jimmy's. But whatever the case, the sound is great – and the tracks work well as messed-up funk numbers with a slight jazzy edge. We might compare the album to some of Larry's work for Okeh during the late 60s, or to later Johnny Hammond albums that feature vocals. Titles include "Number One", "Love Is Mission Impossible", "Zodiac Song", "Recession Or Depression", and "Jimmy Smith Is The Midnight Cowboy". LP, Vinyl record album

Red SovineJuke Joint Johnny – Gonna Shake This Shack Tonight ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1950s. New Copy ... $19.99 27.99
Great work from the legendary Red Sovine – a country singer who'd already spend many years in music before recording these sides for Decca and MGM in the 50s – but one who really took off during the decade with sides like these! Red's still country all the way through – but also borrows nicely from some of the more contemporary instrumentation of the time, and brings his sound forward with some slight rockish touches that never overwhelm his roots, but which really make the music crackle with a nice degree of energy! Sovine's sounds at the time might well be seen as taking country music forward from the generation of Hank Williams – and the scope of the collection is big enough to include 31 key tracks from the 50s, plus a great set of notes as well. Titles include "Sundown Sue", "You're Calling Me Sweetheart", "Wild Beating Heart", "Why Baby Why", "Billy Goat Boogie", "Intoxicated Rat", "Four Arms", "Poor Man's Riches", "Are You Mine", "Courtin Time In Tennessee", and "Juke Joint Johnny".

Johnny Guitar WatsonBest Of The Okeh Years ... CD
Collectables/Okeh, Late 60s. Used ... $7.99
A long-overdue collection of Johnny's great work for the Okeh label from the mid 60s – material that's very different in style than his other records from later years! The first 12 tracks on the set are from a unique album that Johnny cut with Larry Williams – done in a soul-duet style that's really rocking, with an uptempo groove that's made the album a favorite for years on the Northern Soul scene! Those tracks are followed by 6 more from a wonderful album that has Johnny playing piano and guitar in a jazzy mode that's similar to his excellent early album for Chess – singing with more of a vocal jazz approach, but lots of bluesy overtones that make the whole set groove nicely. The last few tracks are in a similar mode – from a tribute to Fats Waller LP, but much hipper than Fats' own work! 20 tracks in all – with titles that include "Two For The Price Of One", "Nobody", "Find Yourself Somebody To Love", "Takin No Chances", "Ask Me", "Too Late", "Fever", "Coke", "Skate Key", "Ain't Gonna Move", "I'd Rather Fight Than Switch", "Comin Home Baby", and "Summertime".

Larry WilliamsThat Larry Williams – The Resurrection Of Funk ... CD
Fantasy/Dusty Groove, 1978. New Copy ... $8.99 12.98
A rare funk album from west coast legend Larry Williams – very different than his heavy R&B of the late 50s, or the brief soul comeback he had with Johnny Guitar Watson in the 60s – and instead a heavy groover with a trippy Cali sound! The record's got a sharp groove right from the start – a vibe that's a bit similar to some of the best Johnny Watson funk of the period – a slight jazzy undercurrent in the instrumentation, with wicked guitar and keyboard bits dancing around each other in the rhythms – often mixed with vocals that have a cool sort of electric feel, and topped with some great horn work from Fred Wesley on trombone and Maceo Parker on alto sax! Rudy Copeland plays keyboards on the album alongside Williams, the the set's got a bit of the feel of Rudy's lost Funky Blindman set – and in a way, also echoes the best strutting, sexy modes of Bootsy Collins too. The album's a surprising gem all the way through – a real lost chapter in Larry's career, and the kind of set that might have broken bigger, had he not died mysteriously a few years later. Titles include "Funky Force", "The Resurrection Of Funk", "One Thing Or The Other", "ATS Express", "How Can I Believe", and "Can't Dance To The Music (If It Ain't Got Funky Rhythm)". CD

A stunning selection of acoustic blues – a series of well-done, deep-detailed CDs put together by the folks at Bear Family – who always give way more than 100% when it comes to this sort of project! The package comes with 2CDs and a super-heavy booklet that's filled with notes on the music, and song-by-song details – and this volume covers huge years of revival for the acoustic blues style – seminal recordings from the 60s and 70s, as a host of younger labels worked hard to rediscover lost blues giants from previous decades, and give exposure to some lesser-known talents too! 2CD package features 48 titles in all – with work by Mance Lipscomb, Scrapper Blackwell, Smokey Babe, Herman E Johnson, Johnny Young, Buddy Moss, Maxwell Street Jimmy Davis, Robert Pete Williams, Rev Gary Davis, Henry Townsend, Louisian Red, Jack Owens, Johnny Shines, Juke Boy Bonner, Babe Stovall, Furry Lewis, Joe Callicott, John Jackson, JB Lenoir, and many others.

VariousBrunswick Singles Collection – Brothers Of Soul ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $21.99
Majestic male soul from Brunswick Records – the label who recorded some of the best material ever from singers like Gene Chandler and Jackie Wilson, and who also gave lots of other singers a great shot too! This set moves way past obvious Brunswick hits, and includes loads of lesser-known singles that are totally great – some funky, some laidback, and lots of them very very groovy – in that totally hip Chicago soul mode that Brunswick did so well. There's a number of artists here who only recorded briefly for Brunswick, before hitting fame elsewhere – and others who are remembered for the few rare gems they left behind at the label – all brought together here in a wonderful 25 track set. There's plenty of surprises throughout – and titles include "Doing The Feeling" by Alvin Cash, "Contract On Your Love" by Chuck Bernard, "I'll Bet You" by Billy Butler, "Sweet Sweet Revenge" by Alvin Valentine, "Hold On" by Marvin Smith, "This Melody Is For My Baby" by Ben Monroe, "Sweet Temptation" by Isaac Hayes, "Wrapped Up In Your Warm & Tender Love" by Richard Parker, "A Mean Thing" by Donald Height, "Just A Little Misunderstanding" by Johnny Williams, "You Got Me Walking" by Cicero Blake, "Once You Fall In Love" by Eddie Mcloyd, "Just A Thing Called Love" by John Parker, and "You Are" by Bobby Reed.

VariousConfessing – Deep Soul From New Orleans ... CD
Grapevine (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
A set that's way deeper than the usual compilation of this type – and a collection that bypasses the more familiar styles of New Orleans funk for the slower, sadder styles of the Crescent City scene! The modes here aren't as typically associated with New Orleans as they are Memphis, Muscle Shoals, and other southern sites from the 60s and 70s – but the collection is a great illustration of the bluer sounds that bubbled forth from the city back in the day. Male singers really dominate here, but there's also a few nice female soul and group tracks as well – and if you're a fan of deep soul from the south, you'll find plenty of nicely-burning numbers here you can't find anywhere else! As always with Grapevine, the set list is perfectly chosen – and the CD features 20 tracks that include "His Love For Me" by Inell Young, "When Something Is Wrong With My Baby" by The Herculoids, "Will You Marry Me Girl" by The Philharmonics, "Stop To Think It Over" by God's Gift To Women, "Say You Will" by Joe Haywood, "Don't Set Me Back" by Diamond Joe, "A House Ain't A Home" by Little Johnny Williams, "Without Your Love" by Richard Caiton, "Now That I've Lost You" by Eldridge Holmes, "I Love You Still" by Zilla Mayes, and "You're Driving Me Crazy" by Ray Algere.

Light In The Attic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... $13.99 14.98
A great criss-crossing of modes at the end of the 60s – music that has roots in country, but which comes off with plenty of funk and soul as well – in styles that were burning strong from LA on eastward, all the way across the south at the time! Some of the grooves here might fall into the "swamp rock" mode of the time – while others showcase hip LA artists mixing rootsy elements with tighter studio production – and a few more have genre-crossing country artists trying on some more soulful modes for good measure. The range of work is really great – and quite surprising, too – and the whole thing's got a great look that really illuminates the music within. Titles include "Northeast Texas Women" by Willis Allan Ramsey, "Nobody" by Larry Williams & Johnny Watson, "Collection Box" by Thomas Jefferson Kaye, "Me & Mr Hohner" by Bobby Darin, "Hunger Child Blues" by Townes Van Zant, "California Women" by Hoyt Axton, "Pay Day Give Away" by Bill Wilson, "Shotgun Willie" by Willie Nelson, "Cajun Moon" by JJ Cale, "Sumpin Funky Going On" by Donnie Fritts, and "Don't Let Me Down" by Dillard & Clark.

Johnny RichardsSomething Else By Johnny Richards ... LP
Bethlehem, 1956. Very Good+ ... $34.99
Some of the best work ever from one of the most under-acknowledged jazz composers and arrangers of the 50s! Johnny Richards is probably best known for his recordings with Stan Kenton in the early part of the decade – but when he moved out on his own, he developed a tremendous sound that was even richer, even more full of color and tone than Kenton's own – and which was often done without any arch-modern tones, yet still fresh and free of cliche. The album's one of Richards' first as a leader – and features a wonderful lineup filled with top-shelf players – including Charlie Mariano on alto, Richie Kamuca on tenor, Stu Williamson and Pete Candoli on trumpets, and Frank Rosolino and Milt Bernhardt on trombones – all players who really bring a bold sort of energy to Johnny's vibrant arrangements. The sax work alone is tremendous – cutting with a beautiful edge across the larger charts – and titles include "Waltz Anyone", "Turn Aboot", "Band Aide", "Dimples", and "Burrito Borracho".

They're not kidding about the title on this one – although they might have added "weirdest" to the name, too! The songs here are all familiar ones, especially if you dig rare grooves from the 60s and 70s – but the versions you'll hear are definitely unusual – often some pretty obscure takes on funk and soul numbers, plus a few bits from other styles too – done up in even funkier versions than before, partly because the production is even rawer, but also because the overall execution is too! Latin vibes mix up with soulful rhythms, deep funk solos, and even some freaky fuzzy psyche-inspired moments – and titles include "Purple Haze" by Johnny Jones & The King Casuals, "Jungle Fever" by Afrosound, "Bang Bang" by Fruko & Sus Tesos, "Pastime Paradise" by Ray Barretto, "Cloud Nine" by Mongo Santamaria, "I Turn My Camera On" by Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra, "Light My Fire" by Ebony Rhythm Band, "Scorpio" by Johnny Frigo, "Rat Race" by Antibalas, and "The Next Message" by The Mighty Mo & Winchester Seven.
