✨✧ DillingerCB 200/Bionic Dread ... CD
Mango/Universal (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
Two mighty albums by the famous Dub Organiser – back to back on a single CD! CB 200 is a straight up classic – one of his first LPs to break large on the international scene, and certainly one of the first Dee Jay records to do so! Channel One Hoo Kim production features the Ragnam Piza toasting mightily over some fat rhythms provided by Benbow & Sly, Family Man and an all star cast of other great Jamaican session men. There's a bit of back & forth toasting with Trinity on "Crankface", the huge hit "Cokane In My Brain" and other essentials like "Buckingham Palace", "Plantation Heights" and the title track. On Bionic Dread, Dillinger cuts loose on the mic in his six million dollar style over a set of tasty Hookim riddims, laid nicely at Channel One in the mid 70s. Tracks include "Bionic Dread", "King Of The Road", "Invisible Dread", "Forward Commandments", "Ragnampiza", "Eastman Skank", "Ital Fighting", "Combination Two", Selassie I" and "Natty B SC". 20 tracks in all.

Club NouveauLife Love & Pain ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... On July 22, 2015
A seminal bit of crossover soul from the mid 80s – and the standout effort from California trio Club Nouveau! The album's best known for its hit remake of "Lean On Me" – one that pushes the tune along with some very heavy beats, and a version that helps us remember why Bill Withers' original is so great! Jay King arranged and produced the set, all in a similar feel – and titles include "Heavy On My Mind", "Promises Promises", "Let Me Go", "Why You Treat Me So Bad", "Jealousy", and a reprise version of "Lean On Me".

Strong City/Traffic, 1989. Used ... Just Sold Out!
An incredible compilation of late 80s rap put together by the one-and-only Jazzy Jay – filled with hard-to-find tracks, some of which were issued as 12"s on the Strong City label! Dope middle school beats from Tony D, Diamond D (his debut?), DJ Shabazz, Congo Square Productions, and others keep this set nice all the way through! A dozen tracks in all, including "Do What You Gotta Do" by Jazzy Jay, "Condition Red" and "Yo Stupid" by Nu-Sounds, "I'm Not Playing" by Ultimate Force (worth the price alone), "Back To The Lab" by Tony D, "Keep Hushin" by Ice Cream Tee, "Grand Wizard Theodore" by Grandwizard & The Freaks, "So Def Am I" by D Ice, "I'm The King" by Raheem, "Def Is The Status" by MobVersa, "The Joke Is Over" by Outlaw Gangster and "You Gotta Believe" by Def Duo.

✨✧ VariousDon Letts Presents The Mighty Trojan Sound ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Don Letts has always been a mover and shaker on the London scene, building connections between the punk movement and helping a lot of Jamaican artists get signed to British labels, so it's only fitting that he should be tapped as selector for a collection of tracks from the deep, deep Trojan vaults. Like his Social Classics comp, this awesome 2 disc set is a tremendous selection of vocal, dee jay, instrumental and dub cuts, some well known, but many more obscure and still great nuggets. 44 tracks, all killer, no filler! Includes John Holt "It's A Jam In The Streets", Big Youth "Foreman Vs Frazier", Hopeton Lewis "Boom Shacka Laka", Shorty "President Mash Up The Resident", Glen Washington "Rockers No Crackers", Junior Byles "Fever", Lloyd Robinson "Cuss Cuss", Gregory Isaacs "Mr Know It All", The Hippy Boys "Doctor No Go", Karl Bryan "Soul Scorcher", Harry J All Stars "The Liquidator", The Chosen Few "Theme From Shaft", The Aggrovators "Channel One Is A Joker", Boris Gardiner "Elizabethan Reggae", King Tubby "I Trim The Barber", Dave & Ansell Collins "Double Barrel", Scientist "Scientist (Stalag 17)", Linval Thompson "Jamaican Callie (version)" and Prince Jammy & The Aggrovators "Out Of Order".

✨✧ VariousWest Coast Funk – From The Vaults Of Canyon/Roker Records ... CD
Essential, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare funk from the vaults of Canyon Records – a label from the west coast, but one with a heart that's deep deep in the south! Swamp Dogg did a fair bit of work for Canyon, and turned in some of his best deep soul productions of the 70s for the imprint – and lots of the work on that label, and the associated Roker Records follows in a very similar feel – almost a trippier take on the sounds of Stax or Fame, filtered through a west coast sort of vibe. Many of these tracks haven't been reissued in years – if at all – and the collection is filled with gems that include "War" by Franky & The Spindles, "Happiness" by Rudy Love & The Company Soul, "If You Don't Get It Yourself" by Gloria Lynne, "Don't Rain On My Parade" by Vee Jay, "Somebody's Been Loving You" by Jean Wells, "Can I Be Your Squeeze" by Chuck Carbo, "Taking All the Love I Can" by The Chosen Few, "Dark Side Of The Ghetto" by The Four Monitors, "That's The Way It Is" by Loe, "Flipped" by Stanley Turrentine, and "Samba D Jubilee" by King Errisson.

Archie Bell & The DrellsDance Your Troubles Away ... CD
TSOP/Edsel (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $6.99
Although Archie Bell & The Drells had recorded earlier with Gamble & Huff on Atlantic, this is their first album for the team's own label – and it's a killer! In a way, Archie and group were sort of responsible for getting Gamble & Huff their own famous imprint in the first place – because their work with the team on Atlantic yielded some instant hits that really pointed the way towards the hit Gamble & Huff style of the 70s, and that sound is brought up-to-date nicely on this set. The record really retains the strong vocal sound of earlier years – and has some of the best harmonies the band ever recorded, very much in the mode of The O'Jays or Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes. McFadden & Whitehead and Bunny Sigler wrote most of the material, backing is by the Instant Funk group, and the Gamble & Huff team handled production on all cuts. Titles include "Let's Groove", "I Won't Leave You Honey, Never", The Soul City Walk", "Dance Your Troubles Away", and "I Love You (But You Don't Even Know It)". CD

Dandeliers & OthersDandeliers & Other Great Groups On States – Chop Chop Boom ... CD
States/Delmark, Mid 50s. Used ... $7.99
Seminal vocal group work from the Chicago scene of the 50s – and a wonderful collection of some of the lesser-known acts working in the Windy City at the time! All the cuts here were recorded for the United and States labels – and at the time, got a lot less circulation than work on labels like Chess, Vee Jay, and even Parrot – even though the material here easily rivals some of the best doo wop sides for those imprints. The Dandeliers head off the set, and are featured on a third of the tracks – and they're an amazing group who easily rival The Moonglows or Flamingos at their early best – with a similar sort of heavenly harmony approach. Other groups here are great too – some nicely rough around the edges – and titles include "My Love", "She's Mine", "Shu Wop", "Loving Partner", "Chop Chop Boom", and "Little Man" by The Dandeliers; "In Your Dreams" and "Go Where My Baby Lives" by The Strollers; "Lonesome Baby", "Ridin & Rockin", and "Big City Bound" by The Hornets; "Sugar Lips" and "Gloria" by The Five Chances; "Mellow Daddy" by The Drakes; and "Girl Of Mine" and "I Knew I Had A Chance" by The Palms. CD features a good number of unreleased tracks, too! CD

✨✧ DellsAnthology – Dells Collection (1955-1992) ... CD
Hip-O, Mid 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s/Early 90s. Used 2CD ... $8.99
A whopping collection of the Dells' classic work – featuring tunes pulled from their years at Vee Jay, Chess, Chi-Sound, and Mercury! The package starts way back in the 50s, and traces the group through their groundbreaking 60s soul sides, their sublime baroque 70s numbers, and their later smooth modern tracks – and as you listen to this stuff, you'll be stunned to hear how great the group remained through all of that time! The early tracks are straight doo wop, with simple production; later work has the great Charles Stepney crafting some majestic Cadet/Concept arrangements; and even the modern stuff has a well-constructed smooth groove. Through it all, though, the real strength is the group's vocals – still wonderful even in the album's one more recent number, "A Heart Is A House For Love". Titles include "I Can Sing A Rainbow/Love Is Blue", "Always Together", "Give Your Baby A Standing Ovation", "I Miss You", "Slow Motion", "We Got To Get Our Thing Together", "The Glory Ove Love", "Long Lonely Nights", "Dreams Of Contentment", "The Bossa Nova Bird", "Oh What A Night" (in 2 versions), "Stay In My Corner (in 3 versions)", and "Does Anybody Know I'm Here".

Maynard FergusonPrimal Scream/New Vintage/Carnival ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1976/1977/1978. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A trio of heavy-hitters from hornman Maynard Ferguson – all served up in one sweet set! Primal Scream is one of the funkiest records ever from Ferguson – the climax of a great run of bigger group grooves in the 70s! The record's a tight batch of groovers, with production and keyboards by Bob James – and the whole thing's a mixture of big band funk and electronics that's simply out of this world! Side one kicks off with two massive numbers – the Arp-heavy "Cheshire Cat Walk", and the Kool & The Gang-ish "Primal Scream" – and both cuts are quite long, with loads of cool instrumental effects. Side two is a bit softer, but it does include a long keyboard groover called "Swamp". On New Vintage, Maynard really grooves it – playing with a group that's even larger than some of his early 70s funk sessions, in a style that's got traces of disco and R&B-styled fusion! The set was arranged, conducted, and produced by Jay Chataway – who's going for a nice smooth mode on most of the cuts, almost in the slick manner of some late 70s cop show soundtrack. Tracks are a bit longer than usual, with more room for the groove, and titles include the originals "Oasis" and "El Vuelvo", a surprisingly nice disco take on "Maria", and the cuts "Airegin" and "Star Wars". Carnival is a cool cooker from Maynard Ferguson – and a set that has all the upbeat tones you'd expect from the title, but lots of funky currents underneath! The set really sparkles right from the start – and has that sweet vibe that Maynard was really getting perfect on these late 70s records for Columbia – jazzy fusion that's tight, but never too uptight – with lots of room for sweet solos from the leader himself, plus Bill Hannon on moog, John Qdini on guitar, Eric Traub on tenor, and Mike Migliore on alto. Titles include a famous working of Earth Wind & Fier's "Fantasy" – plus "Battlestar Galactica", "MF Carnival", "Baker Street", "Birdland", "How Ya Doin Baby", and "Stella By Starlight". CD

Charlie HadenHelium Tears ... CD
New Edition (Germany), 1988. Used ... $14.99
A lost late 80s recording from Charlie Haden – one that has the bassist working in territory that echoes some of his ECM moments of previous years – but which also bursts forth with some fresh colors and ideas as well! The tunes have a nice sense of movement throughout – and Haden's leadership brings together a compelling lineup that includes performances from Jay Clayton on vocals, Robben Ford on guitar, Ralph Towner on synth, Julian Priester on trombone, and Denny Goodhew on alto and bass clarinet – musicians who shift their configurations over the course of the record, and burst out with new ideas at each step. Titles include "Julia's Child", "In The Moment", "Koputai", "I Could See Forever", "23rd & Cherry", and "Helium Tears". CD

Jane HarveyJazz Side Of Sondheim (aka Jane Harvey Sings Sondheim) ... CD
Atlantic/Little Jazz Bird, 1987. Used ... $4.99
Very cool readings of tunes penned by Steven Sondheim – a set that takes the compositions way past their Broadway roots! Jane Harvey does a great job of handling the songs with a jazz-based intimacy – working with spare instrumentation that includes piano and keyboards from Mike Renzi, bass from Jay Leonhart, and drums from Grady Tate. Ray Ellis brings in some fuller orchestral backing on one number, but overall the set's a laidback take on Sondheim tunes – almost a small club sort of jazz performance, which really changes up the tunes. Titles include "Old Friends", "Everybody Says Don't", "The Story Of Lucy & Jessie", "Pretty Women/Not While I'm Around", "Could I Leave You", "Not A Day Goes By", "There Won't Be Trumpets", and "Send In The Clowns".

Vijay IyerBreak Stuff ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2015. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
Beautiful trio work from pianist Vijay Iyer – a record that's filled with the sorts of chunky rhythmic lines we love so much in his playing! The album's got Iyer working much more at a familiar level than his more electronic album for ECM – with that sort of warmth and joy that's really brought new life to the piano trio format through his recordings – the best of which we might put up there with our early favorites from Robert Glasper. The group features Stephan Crump on bass and Marcus Gilmore on drums – and titles include "Blood Count", "Break Stuff", "Taking Flight", "Work", "Wrens", and "Mystery Woman". CD

Delicious Vinyl, 2008. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
The J Dilla beats that provided the stellar backdrop for his worthy brother Illa J's rhymes – the instrumentals for the Yancey Boys album – a record that stands up very well against many of the better LPs Dilla produced in his lifetime. It could have gone wrong in a number of ways for a number of reasons – but truth be told it's a quality record that's will worth picking up! On the vocal versions, Illa J's proved a worthy talent – rolling with a mix of singing and rhyming is really unique – and this set of bright, spacey funk beats by Dilla are naturally top notch & timeless and sound wonderful out on their own. Tracks include "Timeless", "We Here", "R U Listenin'", "All Good", "Swagger", "Illasoul", "Air Signs" and more. CD

Midnite is right – as the session's a moody, mellow late nite one – just spare trio material by Wynton, played in a group that features Paul Chambers on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums! The titles are all nice and long – and really let Kelly stretch out on the keys – working in a mode that's lyrical and soulful – on a set of titles that include include Babs Gonzales' "Weird Lullaby", plus "Skatin", "Temperance", "On Stage", and "Pot Luck".

Gerald & Eddie LevertFather & Son ... CD
East West, 1995. Used ... $2.99
A beautiful bit of mainstream soul from Gerald and Eddie Levert – two of the best male voices from two generations, working beautifully here in a laidback set of tracks! The vibe's almost like that direction taken by the O'Jays in the early 80s – that time when their ballads were actually better than their groovers – although there's definitely some styles here that are more 90s soul too. The mellow format makes for a wonderful record, with lots of great interplay between the two Leverts – and titles include "I Got Your Back", "Already Missing You", "Get Your Thing Off", "Don't Make Me Beg", "I'm Savin Your Place", "The Apple Don't Fall", "For The Love", and "Wind Beneath My Wings".

✨✧ Little RichardDirectly From My Heart – The Best Of The Specialty & Vee Jay Years (3CD set) ... CD
Specialty/Concord, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99 29.99
A wonderful selection of work from the great Little Richard – a 64 track package that not only includes loads of gems from his early years on Specialty Records, but also includes a lot of near-forgotten material from his great run on Vee Jay as well! The Specialty tracks are the stuff of legend – material that set a whole new standard not just for R&B, but for rock and roll, and coming soul as well – as Richard draws on roots from gospel and jazz, and fuses them into a rawer, tighter groove that's got plenty of New Orleans soul elements in the piano and rhythms – all to make things take off like a rocket right from the start. And even if you think you know the hits, there's plenty more here to discover too – loads of lost gems from these years that really make the collection great. Next up are the recordings for Vee Jay Records in Chicago – material that represents an early comeback for Little Richard – one of many over the years, and the one that's probably closest to the sound that first got him started! Although issued on Vee Jay in the 60s, the record's got less of a soul groove than you'd expect – and features Richard working on the west coast in a rough-edged R&B mode that's quite different than the smoother shift that was going down with most of Vee Jay's Chicago crew at the time. Most tracks have some super-sharp guitar – often played by a young Jimi Hendrix, as well as Johnny Guitar Watson and Black Arthur – and as usual, Richard's on the piano on most numbers, really wailing on the keys at a level that matches the pyrotechnics of his vocals! Package comes with a bonus 16 page booklet – and titles that include "Goin Home Tomorrow", "Without Love", "Talkin Bout Soul", "I Don't Know What You've Got But It's Got Me", "Oooh My Soul", "Jenny Jenny", "The Girl Can't Help It", "Hey Hey Hey Hey", "Rip It Up", "Directly From My Heart", "Memories Are Made Of This", "Groovy Little Suzy", and lots lots more!

O'JaysTogether We Are One ... CD
Right Stuff, 2004. Used ... $4.99
A compilation of previously unreleased tracks from the one-and-only O'Jays – numbers produced by the Gamble-Huff team, mostly in the 80s with some stray numbers from the late 70s and 90s – but never included on any of the O'Jay's albums of the time! The albums are mostly synthesizer and electro-influenced ballads and tracks that strayed a bit from any defining formula the group was working at the particular time, so stylistically it's a bit of a hodgepodge. But if the tracks lack the classic characteristics of the group's and the production team's best, it's still pretty striking how durable the sound holds up in the present day – with cleaner sound mixes than they might have had if released nearer the recording dates! 12 tracks including "All Eyes On Africa", "Together We Are One", "Your Place Or Mine", "Ruler Of The Universe", "Promises", "When Sunny Gets Blue", "Hurry Home" and more.

Joe SimonChokin Kind – The Sound Stage 7 Collection ... CD
Sound Stage 7/Airline, Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 18.99
Some of the greatest work ever from soul singer Joe Simon – presented here in a full package for the first time ever! Simon's an artist with countless great work to his name – including early singles for Fame and Vee Jay, and later hits for the Spring label in the 70s – but to us, his work for the Sound Stage 7 label may well be his best – as it offers up a pure, proud Simon really standing at the crossroads of soul music – twisting together many different strands with effortless ease! The style here is still more southern than Joe's later work, but there's also a hipper, tighter vibe going on too – one that even makes some of the more country-styled moments come across like nobody else, with an expansive range that might have the sophistication and class of Jerry Butler one minute, and the raspier charm of Bobby Womack the next. This 36 track set is the deepest dig we've ever seen into Simon's years at the label – and is filled with great tracks that include "No Sad Songs", "Dreamin", "Can't Find No Happiness", "Long Hot Summer", "Too Many Rivers", "Nine Pound Steel", "Teenager's Prayer", "It's Too Late", "Misty Blue", "The Chokin Kind", "Moon Walk", "San Francisco Is A Lonely Town", "Help Yourself", "Baby Don't Be Looking In My Mind", "Misty Blue", and lots more!

A really nice surprise from guitarist Mike Stern – a set that definitely delivers the standards promised in the title, and also creates a new sort of classic sound for Stern's guitar! Mike still plays with some chromatic modes that have that wider, arier sound of the guitar – but other moments focus on more of a tight line, deftly soloing on standards, almost taking Stern back to jazz of the generation before he got his start. There's still a few more contemporary moments on the set – and the lineup includes Al Foster on drums, Jay Anderson on bass, Randy Brecker on trumpet, Gil Goldstein on keyboards, and Bob Berg on saxes – on titles that include "Peace", "Windows", "Straight No Chaser", "Like Someone In Love", "Lost Time", "Nardis", and "Moment's Notice".

Pianist Vijay Iyer with a tremendous trio of talents – the Trio 3 group of Oliver Lake on alto, Reggie Workman on bass, and Andrew Cyrille on drums – all avant jazz heavyweights who really help Iyer hit some new territory! Vijay's been making spectacular sounds under his own direction – but working here with Lake, Workman, and Cyrille we see a whole new side of his talents – a surprising sympathy for the more experience musicians – especially Workman and Cyrille, who fuse with his blocky style of piano to create these forward flows that really set Lake's horn free! The album's a surprising delight in all aspects, and has a depth and variety that really holds our interest throughout – and titles include "Shave", "The Prowl", "Wiring", "Chiara", "Tribute To Bu", "Suite For Travyon & Thousands More", and "Rosemarie".

A stunning look at a legendary London club of the 60s – a CD that's brimming over with the American soul that made it groove so great back in the day! The set does a great job of showing the roots both of Northern soul, and the UK mod scene – as most of the work here is from that early cusp of soul – when R&B still figured strongly into the mix, and the groove also had some strong inflections from blues and jazz as well! CD features 28 smoking tracks – including "Ain't That Loving You Baby" by Jimmy Reed, "Jaywalking" by The Upsetters, "Who Can I Run To" by Geri Hall, "I'll Take One" by Harold Burrage, "Song Called Soul" by Gene Chandler, "Let The Good Times Roll" by Alvin Robinson, "Question" by Roscoe Shelton, and "I've Got A Claim On You" by Betty Everett.

VariousOne-Der-Ful Collection – One-Der-Ful Records ... CD
One Der Ful/Secret Stash, Late 60s. New Copy ... $15.99
An unassuming cover, but a set that's got a really colorful batch of rare Chicago soul – including a number of never-issued tracks from the legendary One-Der-Ful Records! The label was one of the true indie greats in Chicago back in the 60s – almost as much a force for local soul as bigger imprints like Chess, Okeh, and Brunswick – and home to an equally great array of artists – including a few who'd later hit big on different labels! The work here is all the handiwork of the Leaner brothers, who not only recorded most of the cuts here – but also helped distribute One-Der-Ful and a host of other midwestern indies – which really gave them a great ear for the best sounds coming from the underground, and the new trends that were breaking big way before the rest of the country picked them up. And although there have been other collections of One-Der-Ful material before, this one may well be the most thoughtful – from the detailed notes on the label and each artist, to the research that uncovered never-issued tracks that include "Happy Times" by Beverly Shaffer, "Enjoy Yourself" by The Five Du-Tones, "I'm Guilty" by Liz Lands, "Thank You Love" by Otis Clay, "Now That You're Gone" by McKinley Mitchell, "Meet Me Halfway" by Beverly Shaffer, "Take Me To Your Leader" by The Sharpees, "When You Get That Feeling" by The Five Du-Tones, "Got To Find A Way (alt)" by Otis Clay, "Seventh Hour" by Liz Lands, and "Here Comes My Baby" by Mary Silvers. The set features lots more great cuts too – including "Who Is She" by Lucky Laws, "The Prettiest Girl" by Joe & Mack, "The Sock" by The Sharpees, "All For You" by the Admirations, and "The Man Of The Town" by Jay Jordan.

VariousR&B Singles Collection Vol 3 – Outta Sight Red Hot Rhythm & Blues ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
Smoking work from the early years of soul music – that time when the style was just coming into its own, through equal parts jazz, R&B, blues, and gospel! The cuts here are those which might be called R&B in another setting, but definitely work together to inform the roots of soul – all in the style that's carried on by the later 60s reissues on the Outta Sight label. Lots of the cuts have the feel of some of the best Jazzman/Jukebox Jam reissues in recent years – a very different take on R&B than previous generations of collectors have explored. Titles include "I Get The Feeling" by Eli Lee, "Let's Start A Romance" by Little Joe Hinton, "Hard Times" by Jacki Ross, "Cherringale" by Ed Townsend, "Twist 62" by Jerry McCain, "My Book" by Bruce Cloud, "The Girl That Radiates The Charm" by June Alexander, and "Dynamite" by Big Jay Bush & The Houserockers.
