Kitty MontgomeryHey Boy/Bring Love ... 7-inch
Sanns, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $9.99
A great sleeper! Kitty's got a hard raw soul voice, and she sounds great on both sides. "Hey Boy" is a strong number, with a mid/uptempo sound – and a very catchy chorus that's a lot better than you might think from the title. "Bring Love" is even nicer, with a loping groove and kind of a righteous sound sound that's very nice. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(White label pressing.)

Terry CallierOccasional Rain ... LP
Cadet/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Terry Callier's first album for Cadet – and the kickoff of one of the greatest three album runs that any soul artist ever recorded! This one's got a different feel than the later two, as it takes songs by Terry, and structures them with these little musical "seque" tracks in between every song, done in a sparer folksy style that recalls Terry's roots in the Old Town scene in Chicago. At the time, Terry was making the transition from folk artist to soul singer – and he'd been picked up by Jerry Butler and The Dells as a promising young songwriter, one of the best talents of the second generation of Chicago soul stars. The record's a stripped-down affair that features a small group with Charles Stepney on harpsichord and organ, Callier on guitar, and backing vocals by Minnie Riperton, Shirley Wahls, and Kitty Haywood. The album kicks off with Terry's great little pop ditty "Ordinary Joe" – probably the catchiest song he ever wrote – then rolls into more somber titles like "Occasional Rain", "Do You Finally Need A Friend", "Golden Circle", and "Blues For Marcus". A totally unique album – and a prime example of the genius that was coming out of Chicago at the time! LP, Vinyl record album
(Part of the Free Soul anniversary series from Japan!)

Lee DorseyRide Your Pony – Get Out Of My Life, Woman ... LP
Amy, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A stunning album of raw New Orleans soul – recorded by the great Lee Dorsey, with production by Allen Toussaint and Marshall Sehorn! The record falls in the same camp as The Meters – and although Dorsey's work has vocals, the choppy instrumental backing is pure Crescent City all the way – even though the cover art oddly features a bunch of teenagers in New York City! Titles include the monster funky break track "Get Out Of My Life Woman", the wonderfully funky "Ride Your Pony", plus loads of other nice ones like "The Kitty Cat Song", "So Long", "Work Work Work", "Shortnin Bread", "Can You Hear Me", and "People I Wish You Could See".

✨✧ Harry Sweets Edison & Eddie Lockjaw DavisSimply Sweets ... CD
Pablo/OJC, 1977. New Copy ... $2.99 11.98
The sweet and the raw – the trumpet of Harry Sweets Edison and the tenor of Eddie Lockjaw Davis – brought together here in a standout small group session for Pablo! The set's got an unusual element in that it features some electric bass from Harvey Newmark – who plays in an otherwise acoustic setting, but gives the tunes maybe this light little bounce – a hint of funk at times, with a rolling element that makes the whole thing a bit different than just a rehash of the old days. Also noteworthy is pianist Dolo Coker, who plays mostly acoustic piano – with that pointed tone that was always such a unique approach – and who also handles a bit of Fender Rhodes, but in a completely different way. Even when Newmark's playing acoustic bass, he's still got a great round tone that really drives the set – and the group's completed by the excellent Jimmie Smith on drums. Titles include "Simply Sweets", "Feelings", "Opus Funk", "Lax", "Miz Kitty's Blues", and "One For The Count". CD

Ramsey LewisRamsey ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A sweet late 70s groover from Ramsey – not as all-out electric as some of his earlier work for Columbia, but done with some nice arrangements that have a full and soulful feel! There's a bit of Kalimba/Earth Wind & Fire soul to the mix – and some tracks have production by James Mack and soulful backing vocals by Kitty & The Heywoods – both elements of which serve to provide a nice platform for Ramsey to soar over the top on Steinway. A few cuts feature a bit of electric keys, but overall, the style's in that "acoustic solo instrument over electric backings – in the manner that 70s mainstream fusion was using heavily at the time. Titles include "Dancin", "I'll Always Dream About You", "Every Chance I Get", and "I Just Can't Give You Up". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a promo stamp and tracklist sticker.)

Night Blooming JazzmenNight Blooming Jazzmen ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the funkiest records ever cut under the direction of Leonard Feather – a sweetly grooving little set that's filled with tight changes and lots of soulful riffing! Feather wrote and arranged the date, but the real strength here is the players – Mainstream Records hipsters who include Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Charles Kynard on organ, Paul Humphrey on drums, Freddy Robinson on guitar, and Ernie Watts on sax and flute – plus a bit of vocal work from Kitty Doswell, although the album's predominantly a vocal one. There's almost a soundtrack jazz feel to some of the best cuts here – tunes that are funky, but not in an over-the-top sort of way – with subtleties and sophistication that really keep the album fresh. The set kicks off with "Nam M'Yoho Ren'ge Yo", which has a good groove, and a nice tight break at the beginning – and other tracks include "The Night Blooming Jazmen", "Donte's Inferno", and "Funkville USA".

PrincePurple Rain (2CD deluxe edition) ... CD
Warner, 1984. New Copy 2CDs (reissue)... $19.99 20.98
One of the greatest crossover albums of the 80s – and the record that catapulted Prince very firmly into the mainstream! There's a tightness here that surpasses even that of Prince's early classics for Warner Brothers – an unabashed love of a pop hook that makes for some incredibly catchy tunes that are still delivered with a nice funky undercurrent. The whole Prince family is at the top of their game at this point – and titles include "Darling Nikki", "Let's Go Crazy", "I Would Die 4 U", "When Doves Cry", "Baby I'm A Star", and "Purple Rain". This fantastic 2CD version features a completely new 2015 Paisley Park remaster of the album, done by Prince – plus a full CD that features unreleased songs and tracks from the vaults – with titles that include "Katrina's Paper Dolls", "We Can F**k", "Father's Song", "Possessed", "Computer Blue (hallway speech version)", "Love & Sex", "The Dance Electric", "Our Destiny/Roadhouse Garden", "Wonderful Ass", "Velvet Kitty Cat", and "Electric Intercourse (studio version)".

Pete RugoloJack The Ripper ... LP
RCA, 1960. Very Good ... $7.99
Over the years, how many films have been made about this guy anyway? We've never seen the movie, but the record's a gem – some very edgy scoring by Pete Rugolo, the ex-Kenton arranger who went on to do some great crime jazz work for a number of labels. This work isn't exactly in that style, but does have some traces of the genre – plus some very weird instrumental approaches that have a nice horror-ish tone! Liner notes, oddly, are by Gypsy Rose Lee – and titles include "Kitty", "Killed In The Elevator", "Love Theme", "Ripper Kills Gateman", "The Operating Room", and "Chase The Hunchback".

Sonny StittSoul Girl ... LP
Paula, 1973. Very Good ... $1.99
An oft-overlooked, but very nice record from Sonny Stitt – recorded in Chicago in the early 70s, and with two different types of groups that show off both sides of the city's jazz scene at the time! O the first 4 numbers, the group is a bit on the larger side – giving the material a nice Cadet Studios touch to it – with Richard Evans on bass, Morris Jennings on drums, Tennyson Stephens on piano, a bit of strings, and vocalizing by Kitty Hayward. The remaining tracks are done in a smaller setting – and they feature a rare appearance by Muhal Richard Abrams on piano, who plays straight stuff here – in a quartet with Wilbur Campell and Cleveland Eaton. A rare record from Sonny – but it's an entirely worthy one! Includes "Got To Get Over", "Soul Girl", "Jeep Blues" and "I Know That You Know" with the larger group, plus the quartet pieces "I Should Care", "Eight Track Blues" and "Gone With The Wind".

VariousWarner Soft Rock Nuggets Vol 1 – Silver & Sunshine ... CD
Warner (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
There's nothing "soft" about the nuggets in this great little collection – as all the tracks here are the cream of the crop of the late 60s pop scene in the US – not super-huge hits, but instead some overlooked gems that definitely warrant the "nuggets" in the title! Most of the work here is from the Warner/Atlantic catalog – but there's also some nice bits from other labels too – and the collection focuses on the warm, breezy, completely sublime sounds that have come to be known as Sunshine Pop over the years – music that's well-produced, but very personal too – and which often has a quality that's a bit deeper than the usual oldies radio material from the time. As usual with most Japanese collections we love so much, the track selection is ultra-hip, and also includes some rare 45-only titles – with two dozen tracks in all, a good number of which we might not have heard otherwise. Titles on this first volume include "Black & White Rainbow" by The Visions, "To Put Up With You" by The Holy Mackerel, "Good Morning New Day" by The Coronados, "Candy Apple Cotton Candy" by Pat Shannon, "Randy" by The Happenings, "Mind Excursion" by The Tradewinds, "Silver & Sunshine" by The Looking Glass, "Fifi The Flea" by The Sidekicks, "Once Again" by The Poor, "Come To The Sunshine" by Harpers Bizarre, "Guess I'm Dumb" by Glen Campbell, "Kitty Doyle" by Dino Desi & Billy, "Susan" by The Buckinghams, "Happiness" by Anita Kerr, "Let's Ride" by Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of Friends, "She Is Today" by The Vogues, and "Portrait Of My Love" by The Tokens.

✨✧ Ben Webster & Harry EdisonBen & Sweets (Jazz Odyssey pressing) ... LP
Columbia, 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
Ben & Sweets finds tenor Webster & trumpeter Edison in wonderful form – both veterans complementing the other brilliantly – with a crack group that includes Hank Jones on piano, George Duvivier on bass and Clarence Johnson on drums. The overall groove is very melodic, but it's still got plenty of kick underneath! Titles include "Better Go", "How Long Has This Been Going On?", "Kitty", "My Romance" and "Did You Call Her Today" and George & Ira Gerswin's "Embraceable You". LP, Vinyl record album
