Steven Hufsteter & OthersKiss Of The Damned (with download) ... LP
Soraya, 1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy ... $18.99 24.98
The soundtrack to Kiss Of The Damned – kind of a modern take on the style of sultry European vampire films of the 70s – nicely done by composer Steven Hufsteter and featuring some cool stand-alone songs, too! If you dig seedy 70s cinema and soundtracks as much as we do, you'll recognize from the cover art that the film is an homage to the style of filmmakers Jess Franco, Jean Rollin others – which has gotten some love in recent years, especially for the evocative soundtracks. The film is directed by Xan Cassavetes (daughter of film maverick John Cassavetes) and composer Hufsteter does a terrific job here putting a modern spin on the sexy sounds of 70s – some that would sound right at home on a vintage soundtrack resurrected by Finders Keepers, but others are more clearly contemporary. Also includes cool period songs AND contemporary tunes by the legendary Brigitte Fontaine, Jane Weaver, Acanthus and more! Includes "KOTD Love Theme", "Vapeur", "Bath Of Tears", "Threshold", "Backstage Jazz", "Adieu Vampiers" and more by composer Steven Hufsteter, "Parade Of Blood Red Sorrows" by Jane Weaver, "Le Ciel Est Doux" by Brigitte Fontaine, "Sleeping Beauty (Angiosse Temporelle)" by Acanthus, ""Hexen Leben Langer" by Der Fluch and more.

✨✧ ManhattansKiss & Say Goodbye – Best Of The Manhattans ... CD
Columbia, 1970s. Used ... $2.99
The Manhattans were one of those groups who knocked around for years in the indie soul world – cutting some fantastic material early on, but then losing direction for a number of years until they sprung forth as a huge act for Columbia during the early 70s. By that time, the band had more than polished their harmonies – coming up with an incredible style that was sweet and smooth, yet still undeniably soulful and human, especially on the ballads that were their specialty. This set of 19 tracks pulls together a rich batch of numbers from the group's work at Columbia – including "Kiss & Say Goodbye", "Goodbye Is The Saddest Word", "Don't Take Your Love", "La La La Wish Upon A Star", "Everybody Has A Dream", "I Was Made For You", and "The Day The Robin Sang To Me".

Rongetz FoundationKiss Kiss Double Jab ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2015. New Copy ... $19.99
An even hipper album than the first Rongetz Foundation outing – which we totally loved – thanks to work from classic musicians who include Gary Bartz on alto, Steve Turre on trombone, and Monnette Sudler on guitar! The music is a great blend of bass-heavy rhythms (acoustic bass, that is), jazzy flourishes, and these excellent vocals from Lilli Cooper – an artist we don't know at all, but who brings a real underground soul vibe to the whole thing – with an old school approach that really lives up to the instrumentation! The album already won us over by including one of our favorite Charles Earland tunes ever – the sublime "Murilley", a lost gem from his late 70s years, given a great vocal reading for the set – and other titles are all original, and include "Cab Samba", "Kiss Kiss Double Jab", "Marshmallow Throne", "Such A Morning Person", and "Sonia Poem", which features a recitation from Sonia Sanchez.

What a great tune! Although folks had been saying for years that Prince was funky, "Kiss" was the first tune to really have him going to town on the instruments – in a way that we always expect from a true funk act. The track snaps along with an intensity that makes it an instant groover – and "Love Or Money" is a pretty nice track too! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Creation/Numero, 1987. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the moodiest music that Nikki Sudden recorded in the 80s – and that's saying a lot, given his other albums! The record's a duet with Roland S Howard – of Birthday Party and Lydia Lunch collaborative fame – and Howard has Nikki really moving into noisier territory – both with the guitar parts used on the tunes, and in the overall presentation of the lyrics and ideas of the tunes! There's no other band on the set, which gives the music a looser, less-structured feel than some of Sudden's other records – really letting the vocal and instrumental concepts ruminate in a space that's all their own – with completely sublime results. Titles include "Feather Beds", "A Quick Thing", "Crossroads", "Don't Explain", "Better Blood", and "Rebel Grave". LP, Vinyl record album

Excellent! A super-cool 6 track vinyl promo-only ep featuring some of the best tracks from Erykah's album Mama's Gun! Sweet, mellow, soulful, and with a very righteous vibe! The record's got some impeccable production – and the best cuts have a stripped-down groove that mixes keyboards and vocals in a way that's similar to recent work by D'Angelo and Jill Scott. Erykah's all her own woman, though – and she keeps things very real with her own unique vocal style and phrasing on the lyrics. LP, Vinyl record album

Ruby Andrews/Gloria LynneSwamp Dogg Presents Ruby Andrews & Gloria Lynne – The Boss Ladies Of Soul ... CD
SDEG, Early 70s/Early 90s. Used ... $8.99
Two rare female soul sets – each recorded a two decades apart, each handled by Jerry "Swamp Dogg" Williams! First up is a very obscure later date from Chicago soul singer Ruby Andrews – a set that's almost equal parts blues and soul, and which often features that updated instrumentation that some of the southern soul singers were using at the time. There's a fair bit of keyboards and electric rhythms in the instrumentation, but Ruby's vocals still keep things real throughout – working with a number of Williams-penned tunes that have a relatively laidback, easygoing feel. Titles include "I Want To Rock With You Baby", "To The Other Woman", "Kiss This", "Throw Some More Dirt On Me", "As In Always", and "Since I Met You". Next up is the early 70s Canyon album Happy & In Love by Gloria Lynne – a real departure from her jazz-based records of the 60s! Gloria's working here with producer/arranger Frank Clark – who's recast Gloria in a heavy-hitting sound for the 70s – recording in Macon and LA with small combo backing that hits hard with heavy bass, tight drums, and a righteous rattling groove that's quite different from Gloria's earlier hits for Everest. Tracks are mostly originals, too – and titles include "What Else Can I Do", "I've Just Gotta Tell Somebody", "How Did You Make Me Love You", "Whatever It Was You Just Did", "Love's Finally Found Me", "If You Don't Get It Yourself", and "Can You Take What I'm Gonna Do".

Captain BeefheartSun, Zoom, Spark – 1970 to 1972 (Lick My Decals Off/Spotlight Kid/Clear Spot/Outtakes) (4LP set – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise/Rhino, Early 70s. New Copy 4LP ... $89.99 99.98
The Reprise Records run of Captain Beefheart – presented here in a special package that also features a full album of never-issued rare material as well! Beefheart at Reprise was a real high point – as the Captain was still full of all the primal, gritty elements of the previous years – but also refining the sound of the Magic Band as well – to a point where the increased musicianship only got more complex, yet helped focus the energy of the songs as well! The whole thing's worth it alone for the mindblowing combination of roots and modern on the guitar work – and the progression over three albums is one of the most striking you'll see at the time for any artist, in any style. The package features the full three albums Lick My Decals Off Baby, The Spotlight Kid, and Clear Spot – and the bonus Outtakes CD features titles that include "Little Scratch", "Kiss Where I Kain't", "The Witch Doctor Life (inst take)", "Harry Irene", "Alice In Blunderland (alt)", "Two Rips In A Haystack/Kiss Me My Love", "Nowadays A Woman's Gotta Hit A Man (early mix)", "Dirty Blue Gene (alt 1)", "Pompadour Swamp/Suction Prints", and "I Can't Do This Unless I Can Do This/Seam Crooked Sam".

Pattie BrooksLove Shook/Our Ms Brooks ... CD
Casablanca/FTG, 1977/1978. Used ... $6.99
A disco double-header! First up is Love Shook – classic disco from Pattie Brooks, and a soaring 70s set that's right up there with the best Casablanca Records grooves of the time! The rhythms here are upbeat and lively – strings mixed in with quick-stepping rhythms, all set to the vocals of Pattie, which have just the right sort of flow to take off nicely in the setting! Titles include "Love Shook", "Let's Make Love To The Music", "Girl Don't Make Me Wait", and a totally cool "Pop Collage Medley", which features bits of "Popcorn" and "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye". Next is Our Ms Brooks – a record that has Pattie reunited with the Soul Galore production team – working with backdrops that are full, but never too overblown – right in that perfect Casablanca mode! Titles include "Heartbreak In Disguise", "After Dark", "This Is The House Where Love Died", and "The Back-up Singer". CD

June Christy & Stan KentonDuet ... LP
Capitol, 1955. Very Good ... $9.99
Haunting stuff – and one of June Christy's darkest albums! June's singing here with her old boss, Stan Kenton, at the piano – no other real backing, just the pair of them working together in a session that's uniquely stripped down for the time. June's vocals are frail and tender – with even more sadness than in some of her more fully arranged sessions, all of which we love to death. Titles include "Come To The Party", "Angel Eyes", "Lonely Woman", "Every Time We Say Goodbye", "How Long Has This Been Going On", "We Kiss In A Shadow", and "You're Mine You". LP, Vinyl record album

Mookish bombast from The Dictactors – heavy rock, fist clenching anthems, poker-faced parodies of love songs and keyboard peppered songs about a bodiy covered in scabs. No sir, there will never be another Dictators! These guys should have been on kid's lunchboxes and Kiss should been dropped by their labels and consigned to cult infamy, that's what we think. Includes the world's first heavy metal cover of Iggy & The Stooges "Search & Destroy" that we know of, plus "Exposed", "Heartache", "Science Gone Too Far!", "Sleepin With The TV On", "Hey Boys" and more.

✨✧ Ernie K DoeYou Got To Love Me – The Greatest Hits Collection ... CD
Sansu/Airline, 1960s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
Legendary work from the great Ernie K Doe – one of the hippest cats on the 60s soul scene in New Orleans – thanks to some razor sharp production and arrangements from Allen Toussaint! Some of these tracks were huge crossover hits, but others are more obscure – and together, they really helped forge that classic Crescent City sound that went onto influence so many others – a loping groove at the bottom, an easygoing melody on the top, and lots of room for a personality-filled singer like Ernie to really do his thing! Titles include the massively funky "Here Come The Girls", plus "You Got To Love Me", "T'Ain't It The Truth", "A Certain Girl", "Te Ta Te Ta Ta", "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye", "Talkin Bout This Woman", "A Long Way Back Home", "Whoever Is Thrilling You", "Fly Away With Me", "Mother In Law", "A Place Where We Can Be Free", "Hotcha Mama", and "She Gave It All To Me".

Roulette, 1960. Used ... $7.99
A really great album by Billy Eckstine – much more swinging and upbeat than some of his other 50s sessions, and with a strongly pronounced jazz flair overall! The album's supposedly recorded live in Vegas in the wee hours of the morning, and features Billy blowing a bit of trumpet as well as singing – all set to some nicely thumping orchestrations by Bobby Tucker, who really knows how to hit the right groove for this sort of a set. Titles include "Lady Luck", "Have A Song On Me", "Deed I Do", "Without A Song", "Moonlight In Vermont", and "Lush Life". CD features a huge amount of previously unissued bonus tracks – titles that include "Prelude To A Kiss", "Fools Rush In", "I Apologize", "Little Mama", "Prisoner Of Love", "Alright Okay You Win", and "In The Still Of The Night".

Concord (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $9.99
The Concord label gave guitarist Herb Ellis some of his greatest moments of the 70s – like this early cooker with guitarist Joe Pass – recorded live at the Concord Jazz Festival that gave the label its name! The 1973 performance has both players really opening up – never overwhelming each other, but driving with energy right from the start, then spacing out their own territory strongly on the solos. Backing is from bassist Ray Brown and drummer Jake Hanna – but the record leaves lots of room for guitar throughout – with tones and moments from both players that are a real surprise. Titles include "Seven Come Eleven", "Prelude To A Kiss", "Perdido", "Easy Living", and "Concord Blues". CD

Red Garland with Ray BarrettoRojo ... CD
Prestige (Japan), 1958. Used ... $12.99
Red Garland's really cooking on this late 50s set – thanks to some added conga work from Ray Barretto on most of the album's tracks – and that great little groove that Barretto's percussion brought to some other soul jazz cookers like this from the time! Garland still gets plenty of space to spin out in that lyrical style he did better than just about anyone else – and core trio rhythm support is from George Joyner on bass and Charlie Persip on drums, who burn nicely when Barretto sits out – although we're definitely partial to the more complicated grooves featured with Ray. Titles include "Rojo", "Mr. Wonderful", "We Kiss In A Shadow", "Darling Je Vous Aime Beaucoup", and the nice groover "Ralph J Gleason Blues". CD

Impulse, 1963. Used ... $6.99
A beautiful album of dark-hued vocals – sung by Johnny Hartman with a quality that's as smokey as the image of him with a cigarette on the cover! The album set a whole new standard for male vocal jazz in the 60s – and is a distillation and refinement of earlier ideas in music by Billy Eckstine, taken down to more personal and fluid levels by Hartman – and recorded here with great small group baking that includes Illinois Jacquet on tenor, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. The vibe is very mellow, but never sloppy or sleepy – and titles include "Charade", "In The Wee Small Hours", "Stairway To the Stars", "Kiss & Run", "Our Time", "Don't You Know I Care", "If I'm Lucky", and "Don't Call It Love".

Patrick HernandezBorn To Be Alive (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Cherry Pop (UK), 1979. Used ... $6.99
Patrick Hernandez looks a bit silly on the cover here – almost like some 70s reject for the role of Doctor Who – but the album's got a tight disco groove that's right in keeping with his other work from the time, and with the French club scene from which he sprang! Some of the best moments here mix a Giorgio Moroder-like keyboard style with some driving Munich Machine grooves – but warm things up in the way that made Paris disco a bit different from other 70s sounds on the European scene – maybe a bit more emphasis on the hooks, or on playful melodic elements in the music. Titles include "Born To Be Alive", "Disco Queen", "I Give You Rendezvous", "Show Me The Way You Kiss", and "It Comes So Easy". CD features bonus tracks – "Too Many People", "Back In Time", "Born To Be Alive (single)", and "Born To Be Alive (12" disco mix)". CD

Motown/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1977/1978. New Copy ... $14.99
Both of Thelma Houston & Jerry Butler's duo records for Motown – back-to-back in a single set! 1977's Thelma & Jerry is up first – and it's a truly sweet pairing of the 2 legendary voices – tempering the more crossover disco mode that Thelma was working so strongly in the mid-to-late 70s just a bit, but still done with a fairly slick, nice and warm sound. The vocal chemistry with Jerry is pretty wonderful, too! Butler and Hal Davis take partial credit for production and tracks include a great, soul style medley of the pop hits "If You Leave Me Now/Love So Right", "Only The Beginning", Stevie Wonder's "Joy Inside My Tears", "Let's Get Together", "It's A Lifetime Thing","I Love You Through Windows" and more. The follow-up Two To One is another gem – this one featuring arrangements by Willie Hutch, Van McCoy, and Terry Woodford. Titles include "Find A Way", "We Owe It To Ourselves", "Never Gonna Get Enough", "If It Would End", "Chicago Send Her Home", and "Don't Pity Me". Also includes the bonus Motown single "Kiss Me Now".

Includes classics like "Riding High", "I'm A Telling You", "That's What Mama Say", "Too Slow", "Man's Temptation", and "I Need To Belong To Someone". One By One has more of a mix of Mayfield titles with compositions by other artists – but still includes many nice numbers like "Lonely Man", "Just One Kiss From You", "My Prayer", and a great version of "Nature Boy".

Isley Jasper IsleyBroadway's Closer Than Sunset/Caravan Of Love/Different Drummer ... CD
Superbird/CBS (UK), 1984/1985/1987. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
An Isley Jasper Isley 3-fer – the '84, '85 & '87's Broadway's Closer To Sunset Boulevard, Caravan Of Love and Different Drummer – in a single set! Broadway was the first breakaway effort from the trio of Ernie Isley, Chris Jasper, and Marvin Isley – a set that's got an even leaner groove than some of the Isley Brothers material from years before! The group really hit their stride right away – stepping out in a sweet array of funky rhythms that have some definite 80s touches on the beats, yet which still share all the best Isleys elements overall! Guitar parts are especially sharp – that carved in soul sound that showed up in most Isleys projects from the early 70s onwards – and the vocals have a great sense of warmth and soul, especially on the mellower tunes in the set, which turn down some of the more hook-heavy rhythms heard on other tracks. Titles include "Serve You Right", "Sex Drive", "Love Is Gonna Last Forever", "Kiss & Tell", "I Can't Get Over Losin You", "Look The Other Way", "Break This Chain", and "Broadway's Closer Than Sunset Blvd". Ernie and Marvin Isley team up with Chris Jasper and for Caravan, and more fully reinventing their for the 80s! The record features the wonderful "Caravan Of Love", a soulful spiritual tune that's kind of to 80s soul what The Impressions "People Get Ready" was to 60s soul! Different Drummer was the last album by this configuration of the group, taking on different modes, with some soul gems in the mix. Titles include "Dancing Around The World", "High Heel Syndrome", "Liberation" and more. Includes "Different Drummer", "Do It Right", "Blue Rose", "8th Wonder Of The World" and more. CD

Milt JacksonJazz N Samba ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Very Good Gatefold ... $11.99
This may not be Milt Jackson's purest album – but oh how we love it! Milt's working here more in a Verve pop jazz mode than a highbrow third stream one – with bossa backings on about half the album, and good small combo work on the rest. Side one features Jimmy Heath on tenor, Tommy Flanagan on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Connie Kay on drums – all grooving nicely next to Milt's vibes on tracks like "Blues For Juanita", "Gingerbread Boy", and "Big George". The real charmer, though, is side two – which has Milt playing with the same group, minus Flanagan, plus 2 guitarists for that bossa sound. Lillian Clark sings vocals on 2 cuts – "Jazz N Samba" and "Kiss & Run" – and the side also features the great groover "Jazz Bossa Nova", and the incredible "The Oo-Oo Bossa Nova", which features Joe E Ross from Car 54 going "Oo Oo!" on the breakdowns!

AVA/VSOP, 1963. New Copy ... $10.99 14.99
Great work from one of the grooviest pianists of the 60s – a player who could always keep things lively and swinging, even in a small combo session! The album's one of Pete Jolly's gems for the Ava label – a follow-up to his semi-hit Little Bird, and like that one, a record done with some slight additional help from Howard Roberts on a few tracks. But this time around, Roberts' work is only on a few of the titles – leaving Pete's core trio to take over most of the grooves themselves, building strongly from warmly rolling rhythms by Chuck Berghofer on bass and Larry Bunker on drums, topped by Jolly's surprisingly soulful lines on piano – all in a blend that reminds us of the great balance between lyricism and groove we always find in the best work of Vince Guaraldi. Titles include "Sweet September", "Can't We Be Friends", "Any Number Can Win", "Soft Winds", "Oleo", "Yours Is My Heart Alone", "I'm Beginning To See The Light", and "Kiss Me Baby". CD

Fern KinneyGroove Me (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Malaco/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $8.99
A standout classic from Fern Kinney – and a set that not only marked a big moment of evolution for southern soul, but also for the Mississippi scene as well! The set was recorded at the Malaco studios in Jackson, but has a vibe that's much closer to some of the TK Records material from Miami – that maturation of southern soul during the disco era – as warmer, more modern touches came into play with rootsier styles of vocals! Mike Lewis handled the string arrangements – giving the record the same disco vibe as some of his other work of the time, including Anita Ward's big debut – and Fern's vocals have this higher range than usual for a southern singer – almost more innately tuned towards clubby rhythms. Titles include a big hit remake of King Floyd's "Groove Me" – really marking the change from the original version – plus "Baby Let Me Kiss You", "Pillow Talk", "Sun Moon Rain", "Angel On The Ground", and "Under Fire". CD features bonus tracks "Let's Keep It Right There", "I Want You Back", "Movie Show", "Baby Let Me Kiss You (single)", "Sweet Life", "Tonight's The Night", and "Groove Me (single)". CD

Lil Louis & The WorldFrom The Mind Of Lil Louis ... LP
Epic, 1989. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A classic bit of Chicago house goes mainstream – and a suprisingly big hit from the late 80s. The main reason most folks bought this album was for Louis' "French Kiss", a sex-sound infused house cut with a "fast-then-slow-then-fast" groove that was endlessly dropped into mixes on radio and in clubs at the time. However, like late 80s house contemporaries Blaze, Louis actually turned out to be a pretty interesting soul talent when given a whole album to work with – and although "French Kiss" is on the beat-heavy "dance" side of the album, there's also a pretty interesting "romance" side that has some nice home-made late 80s soul tunes with great warm keyboard-heavy production. Titles include "Lil Tanya", "The Luv U Wanted", "6 AM", and "Brittany". LP, Vinyl record album

Zdenek LiskaMala Morska Vila ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $22.99
A strangely beautiful set of music composed by Zdenek Liska – described as orchestral/electronic, and it's soaring, haunting stuff – music with a great deal of subtley and abstract beauty on one level, and tense, fractured and spooky atmospherics on another! This is complex, accomplished material – classic soundtrack styled strings and other grander orchestrations blend with soundscape errata that's hard to define and describe – be it creaky, crackling beats, eerie bits of echo, or fuzzy effects. Titles include "Mala Morska Vila", "Witches Firewall", "The Sixth Sister", "The Black Sea", "The Kiss", "Games/Echoes", "Behind The Rock", "The Pendant" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
