Tommy Boyce & Bobby HartI Wonder What She's Doing Tonite (plus bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
A&M (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99
Brilliant 60s pop from the team of Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart – best known for their key early songwriting work for The Monkees, but a heck of a great duo on their own! Boyce & Hart have a sparkly, sunshiney sound that's very much a part of The Monkees generation – a beautiful post-folk, post-surf blend of styles, and one that's served up with all the warmth and charm that made The Monkees so great – yet also with some cool twists and turns that make a record like this so great – the kind of chance-taking that A&M sometimes allowed its artists to take at the time! Backings are super-groovy – arranged by Artie Butler and Don McGinis – and titles include "I Wonder What She's Doing Tonite", "Teardrop City", "I Wanna Be Free", "The Countess", "Population", and "Two For The Price Of One" – a great cover of a Larry Williams & Johnny Watson soul tune! Features bonus mono single tunes – "The Ambushers", "Love Every Day", "Where Angels Go Trouble Follows", and "I Wanna Be Free". CD

Bobby ForresterBobby Forrester Organist (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD CD format
Dobre/Shout (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
One of the greatest albums of Hammond jazz ever recorded – and a darn funky one at that! Bobby Forrester may not look like a hipster on the cover, but this set grooves like some of the best early 70s work by Jack McDuff, Jimmy McGriff, and Groove Holmes – hitting hard with some really funky tracks that have made the album a must-have with collectors for years. The sound here a lean, mean revision of the Prestige Hammond jazz groove of the 60s – Bobby grooving on organ with just drums by Johnny Kirkwood and guitar by Elijah Williams Jr – all coming together in a totally solid sound that has plenty of funky riffs, nice drums, and soaring organ lines! Given the lean, compact approach to the groove, we might compare Forrester most with Charles Earland at his best – although the album's got a voice and depth that's certainly all its own. Titles include the classic groover "Uncle Funky", a great cover of "Sanford & Son Theme", and the cuts "Blues For Razz", "Don't Misunderstand", and "Funky Fly". CD

Johnny HortonSinging Fisherman – The Complete Recordings (9CD set) ... CD CD format
Columbia/Bear Family (Germany), 1950s. New Copy 9CD & Book ... $206.99 289.99
The complete recordings of Johnny Horton – a key figure in both rockabilly and country music in the 50s – thanks to a rich run of singles and albums for Columbia Records! Johnny's got a strong career for someone who only spent a short amount of time on this planet – a style that initially takes up the honky tonk mantle from Hank Williams (so much so that Horton married Hank's wife after he died) – then moves into some important historically-themed material late in his career. If you only know Horton from his hits, you'll find that he's got plenty more to offer – as the array of music here is really stunning, with a sense of American pride and power that was an undeniable precursor to the 60s folk boom, and which helped inspire early rock as well – but done in a level that's got all the rich, bold, brilliant sound of Columbia's productions of the 50s! The package features every single cut from the Columbia session – including some unissued tracks, demos, and ever single and album issue as well – along with Horton's obscure sound library album in 1958 for Sesac too. The box features a massive 288 page, hardcover book that's filled with liner notes, discographical information, and hundreds of photos – and the whole thing also includes a previously unpublished facsimile reprint of his mother's handwritten biography of Johnny!

Johnny MathisYou Light Up My Life/Mathis Magic ... CD CD format
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".

Jimmy SmithJimmy Smith In A Plain Brown Wrapper ... LP LP format
Verve, 1971. Very Good ... $7.99
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

Beau WilliamsBeau Williams ... LP LP format
Capitol, 1982. Very Good- ... $9.99
An overlooked gem from the Capitol Rare years – one of the few albums cut by singer Beau Williams, and a smooth modern affair produced to perfection by Johnny Pate! Beau's got a sound that's warm, yet deeply soulful – with qualities that work especially nicely on the album's mid-tempo groovers – which step along in a slightly jazzy way, thanks to help from Patrice Rushen, Bobby Lyle, and James Gadson. Williams does a few melodica solos on the record, and also helped arrange the album with Pate – and titles include "If You're Ready", "Let Me Be The One To Take You Home", "A Song For You", "I Like Everything About You", "This Time It's Real", and "Another Place In Time". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and a name in pen on front, and some pen and a peeled spot on back.)

Larry WilliamsThat Larry Williams – The Resurrection Of Funk ... CD CD format
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
(On the Dusty Groove label.)

VariousCatacombs – Temple Street, Wolverhampton 1968 to 1974 – The Original Sound Of Northern Soul, Popcorn & R&B ... CD CD format
Charly (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $8.99 13.98
Sublime 60s soul singles – upbeat, grooving, and brought together in support of legendary UK club The Catacombs – an early hotbed for the Northern Soul scene! The package is heavy on notes and images from the club – but even if you've never set foot in the UK, or on a dancefloor, you'll still find plenty here to love – a searing batch of 28 gems from the late 60s – most of them pretty darn rare, and usually with an edge that's a lot rawer than mainstream work of the time! The Catacombs seemed to pick the cuts that still held onto some of the sharper qualities of the earliest years of soul – less smooth groovers and more gritty tracks that really make this batch stand out. Titles include "Try A Little Harder" by The Fi-Dels, "What Is This" by Bobby Womack, "Suffering City" by Johnny & Lilly, "Psychedelic Soul" by Saxie Russell, "Do Me Like You Do Me" by John Williams & The Tick Tocks, "The Wrong Girl" by The Showmen, "Every Beat Of My Heart" by The Du-Ettes, "Michael" by The CODs, "Chinatown" by Victor Knight, "House Of Heartaches" by The Neptunes, "Love Time" by Kelly Brothers, "I've Got To Have Your Love" by Mill Evans, "The Touch Of Venus" by Sandy Wynns, "If You Ask Me" by Jerry Williams, and "Nothing Worse Than Being Alone" by The Ad Libs.

VariousConquer The World – The Lost Soul Of Philadelphia International Records ... CD CD format
Philadelphia International, 1970s. Used ... $7.99
Philly International, way past the hits – presented here on a special collection of key rarities from the legendary label! If you think you've heard Philly before, get ready to think again – because the tracks here are all non-iconic gems from the deeper reaches of the label – deeper soul, hipper club, and heavier funk than you might expect from the sweeter chart singles the imprint scored back in the 70s! The package is a masterpiece – way better than we might have expected, and featuring some key tracks that even we'd never heard before – more than enough to have you digging funky 45s for Philly International. Tracks include "Ghetto Woman (parts 1 & 2)" by Ruth McFadden, "Everybody Needs Good Lovin (parts 1 & 2)" by Bunny Sigler, "Days Go By" by Bobby Bennett, "It's So Wonderful" by Johnny Williams, "Makin Up Time (parts 1 & 2)" by Frankie & The Spindles, "Hard Workin Man" by Pat & The Blenders, "Theme From Five Fingers Of Death" by Bunny Sigler, "Good & Plenty" by Carolyn Crawford, "Yellow Sunshine" by Yellow Sunshine, "Darling Come Back Home" by Love Committee, and "Grasshopper" by The Soul Devalents. CD features 4 bonus tracks – "Ruby's Surprise Party" by Ruby & The Party Gang, "Stop Taking My Love" by The Mellow Moods, "Love Is Here" by The Futures, and "The Big Hurt" by People's Choice. CD

VariousCountry Funk Vol 2 – 1967 to 1974 ... LP LP format
Light In The Attic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99 26.98
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.

VariousDeep Soul Moments – Sometime Someplace Somewhere ... CD CD format
Outta Sight (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
Stone gems from the early years of deep soul – that wonderful style that borrowed bits of gospel, blues, and R&B to draw a sharp edge on otherwise mellow ballads – in a style that forever transformed the sound of soul! The cuts here have a really special sort of vibe – heartfelt, but not as blue as blues – laidback, but not as sleepy as pop ballad work – and incredibly powerful, especially on the vocal tip – as the singers really take the lead on all numbers, and get plenty of space to shine! The set features a whopping 27 tracks in all – and titles include "Love Me" by Clarence Williams, "I Worship The Ground You Walk On" by Walter Rhodes, "Raise Your Head" by Henry Moore, "So Long" by Sam Baker, "I Won't Never Make You Cry" by Roger Washington, "Only One" by Gay Meadows & The Yobyalps, "As Sure As I Live" by Nancy Love, "Sometime Someplace Somewhere" by Johnny Wilson, "Goodbye My Love" by Artie Golden & The Mighty Trojans, and "She Put Me Down" by Paul Walters.

Cultures Of Soul, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
A great US take on the Jam Up Twist sound of DJ Andy Smith – the groove he explored on a previous compilation in the UK – now served up here in a different lineup for the states! The music is a mad mix of R&B, jump blues, rockabilly, and other raw sounds from the tail end of the 50s – very much like the sort of territory that Keb Darge has explored on his excellent sets with Little Edith – and the kind of sounds that go way way beyond well-known hits from the period! Smith digs very deep in the crates, and gets some help with selections from Deano Sounds as well – on this smoking set that includes "Honey Child" by Johnny Williams, "What's My Chances" by Chuck Flamingo, "Thanks Mr Postman" by Bobby King, "Lonesome Shack" by Ernie Washington, "Doing All Right" by Eddie Cash, "Swingin & Surfin" by Les Brown Jr, "Ever Again" by Gene Woodbury, "High School Caesar" by Reggie Perkins, "Monkey's Uncle" by Ray Sharpe, and "Pack Shack & Stack" by Billy Nelson.

VariousFatback's Soul Shop ... CD CD format
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
If we had a shop like this in our neighborhood – we'd be broke! Fatback are (of course) the legendary 70s funk group whose records we've loved for decades – but what's not as well known is that they also ran a little storefront office known as the House Of Fatback, located in Queens, and home to some really funky music! The office not only served as headquarters for the group, but was also a place where they caught new talent, and kept one ear to the street for other artists to work with. In the years before Fatback themselves broke big, the group ran a label – also called Fatback – and recorded some excellent local talent on the New York scene – a mix of soul and early funk acts, handled with a level of quality that ranks right up there with the best indie soul of the late 60s. This great set features 16 tracks from the Fatback label, along with great notes that really get at their story – and contains a wonderful range of tunes that are all winners all the way through! Titles include "The Cat Walk" and "Little Bit Of Soul" by Gerry & Paul & The Soul Emmisaries, "You're My Everything" and "Who Will It Be" by Mary Davis, "Right Or Wrong" and "I Need You" by The Puzzles, "Why Don't You Let My Love Go" and "Got To Find A Way" by Jimmy Williams, "Put It In" and "Keep On Brother Keep On" by Johnny King & Fatback Band, and "Quiet Waters" by GP & The Soul Emissaries.

Jerk Boom Bam (Romania), Early 60s. New Copy ... $18.99
Socking soul from the 60s – and a great assortment of tunes that often have a heavy R&B influence too! There's plenty of grit in the grooves throughout – and the package is pulled together from the sorts of rare singles you might spend a lifetime tracking down – all laid out here in one sweet little package! Most numbers are upbeat – but less northern soul than some hard-edged stompers – the kind that some folks might be tempted to call tittyshakers. Titles on this volume include "Hands Off" by The Azaleas, "Oh Johnny" by Baby Jean, "Needle In A Haystack" by Tawny Reed, "Watchdog" by Doroth Williams, "Loose Me Love" by Virgie Till, "Come On Baby" by Marie Knight, "Tom Cat" by Big Mama Thorton, and "I Believe To My Soul" by Lottie Joe Jones.

Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $10.99
Early soul, late R&B, and plenty more – served up here in a mighty cool compilation that definitely lives up to its name! This one's perfect for a hot summer night – when the grooves always sound best when they're a bit laidback – the kind of mellow grinders and slower steppers that really rule throughout this set – all pulled from obscure 45s from back in the day, in a good mix of familiar names and lesser-known gems. Titles include "Hungry Man" by Titus Turner, "You're The Boss" by Lavern Baker & Jimmy Ricks, "Trouble" by The Robins, "Tell A Whale Of A Tale" by Wynonie Harris, "Workin Out" by Ernie Fields, "Mozelle" by Andre Williams, "Lonesome Drifter" by Jericho Brown, "I Said No" by Pat Clayton, "Please Mr Jailer" by Wynona Carr, "Anytime" by Dee Irwin, "Swinging On A Chandelier" by Bobby Beck, "He's A King" by Barbara McNair, "The Gal From Joe's" by Nina Simone, "Rain Down Rain" by Big Maybelle, "Dead Man's Blues" by Scatman Crothers, "Ghost Town" by Eddie Miller & His Band, "Summertime" by Santo & Johnny, "Cindy Lou" by Dick Penner, "Lilly's Lament" by Helen Grayco, and "Taboo" by Sylvie Moro.

Charly (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $12.99 13.98
A searing set of vintage soul cuts – brought together in honor of the legendary Wigan Casino – one of the most important clubs in the UK Northern Soul scene of the 70s! For the uninitiated, Wigan was a hotbed of upbeat rare soul cuts – overlooked American goodies from both the previous decade and more recent years – often with a strong focus on deeper soul vocals, which meant some strong entries from the southern scene as well! This well-done package comes with a heavy book-style cover, notes on the club and its music – and a whopping 28 tracks in all – including "Being Without You" by Maurice Williams, "I Can't Hide It" by The Appreciations, "Come On Train" by Don Thomas, "I'm Satisfied With You" by The Furys, "You're Gonna Need Me" by Ted Ford, "You Got To Use What You Got" by Ann Sexton, "Why Should I Cry" by The Gentrys, "It's Heavy" by Bags, "Baby What Has Happened To Our Love" by The Ringleaders, "The Night The Angels Cried" by Johnny Dynamite, "I'm A Teardrop" by The Jerms, and "Your Wish Is My Command" by The Inspirations.

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!

New Johnny PateBucktown – Original Soundtrack ... LP LP format
American International, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A funky treasure – finally unleashed! Bucktown was one of the best of the mid 70s indie blacksploitation films – thanks to some great starring work from Fred Williamson and Pam Grier – but for years, the soundtrack's never been available as an individual release. Now, this tasty heavy-vinyl set makes all the film's wonderful grooves finally available – presented in a great style that includes all the shorter moodier bits, the fuller longer funky tracks, and even a bit of sound effects and dialogue! The music was penned and conducted by Johnny Pate – of Shaft In Africa and Brother On The Run fame – and the tunes are a great blend of funky soundtrack styles that include full on big band, sparer snapping instrumentals, and even a few nice tunes with great use of moog! Titles include "Chase", "Stepping", "Bar Fly", "Check In", "Freeze", "Love Theme", "Call It In", "Sneaking It In", and "Spin". LP, Vinyl record album
