Kitty & The HaywoodsLove Shock ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good+ ... $16.99
Nice lost bit of Chicago female soul, produced by the Ohio Players, and with a sound that sounds a lot like their Mercury albums of the time – that is, with some hard slap-bass funk on most cuts, and some slower spacier sounds on others. Includes one of our fave tracks these days, the spacey "Makin' Love", which has a great moogy intro, and nice soprano vocals that sound a lot like Minnie Riperton's. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Milford GravesMeditation Among Us ... CD
Kitty/DIW (Japan), 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
With Milford Graves leading the proceedings, there's hardly room for meditation – but that's ok with us, as the album's a killer! The session is a rare mid 70s one – recorded in Tokyo with Japanese players that include Kaoru Abe on saxes, Mototeru Takagui on tenor, and Toshinori Kondo on trumpet. Graves' spirit is what really drives the set – laying down percussion, piano, and voice with slightly spiritual undertones – and pushing the Japanese players into some warmly expressive moments. CD

Little MiltonMe For You – You For Me ... LP
Glades, 1977. Very Good+ ... $8.99
Little Milton's always been as much of a soul singer as a bluesman – and this overlooked gem from the 70s has him hitting equally well on both fronts! The set's a great precursor to Milton's 80s revival on Malaco – but has the singer working in Chicago, with these deep soul arrangements by James Mack – who also brings in the excellent Kitty & The Haywoods for backing vocals! Little Milton's not trying too hard to overstate himself – and some cuts have this laidback, slow-burning feel that's nicely southern soul – mixed with a few funky moments that are equally nice. Titles include "Just One Step", "Me For You You For Me", "Loving You (Is The Best Thing To Happen To Me)", and "My Thing Is You". LP, Vinyl record album

Night Blooming JazzmenNight Blooming Jazzmen ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... About March 22, 2017
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".

VariousMiami Rockabilly ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
The city of Miami wasn't just a hotbed of sand and surf back in the day – as when the sun went down, the town had a fair bit of rockabilly action going on – as you'll hear in this great set of rare tracks from the end of the 50s! The music here is far less familiar than rockabilly sounds from Louisiana, Tennessee, and other points south – mostly recorded by very small labels, who hardly ever circulated the sounds outside the south of Florida – and who usually kept their productions to a pretty stripped-down level! Yet it's that quality that also makes these recordings pretty unique – as most don't have the flash and polish of farther-north sounds – and instead almost take off direction from an acoustic hillbilly aesthetic – rocking things up on the rhythms, electrifying one of the guitars in the group, but still presenting a relatively live, spontaneous performance overall. The package features 32 gems from this overlooked scene – singles originally issue don the AFS, Perfect, Trail, Gulfstream, and Art labels – with titles that include "Any Way" by Wesley Hardin with The Roxters, "Baby Rock" by Ross Minmi, "Donny's Boogie" by Don Pete & The Rhythm Rockets, "Honky Tonk On Second Street" by Buck Trail & The Dead Enders, "Rock N Roll Itch" by Curley Jim & The Billey Rocks, "I'm Tellin Ya Baby" by Wally Deane & The Flips, "Dandy Sandy" by Jimmy Gale's Imperials, "Kitty Kat Rock" by Art Law, "Blues Keep Knocking" by Buck Trail, and "TV Mama" by The Frantics Four.

✨✧ Terry CallierOccasional Rain ... CD
Cadet, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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! CD

✨✧ Lee DorseyRide Your Pony – Get Out Of My Life, Woman ... LP
Amy, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Sonny StittSoul Girl ... LP
Paula, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

Phil UpchurchWay I Feel ... LP
Cadet, 1969. Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of the greatest moments ever from guitarist Phil Upchurch – and one of the best from legendary arranger Charles Stepney too – a set that uses Upchurch's guitar in the same way that Stepney was using the piano of Ramsey Lewis in the late 60s! The record has full arrangements that are in the best late 60s Chess/Cadet style – rich, but never sleepy – with undercurrents of funk down at the bottom, and sweet backing vocals from a small group that includes Cash McCall and Kitty Haywood. But the real difference is Phil's guitar – which has some fuzzier, trippier elements – which make for a nice contrast with the smoothness of the Stepney backings, at a level that creates one of the most compelling Chess albums of the time! Titles include "Elektrik Head", "Peter Peter", "Way I Feel", "Bacn' Chips", and "You Don't Have To Know". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Elmer BernsteinWalk On The Wild Side (bonus tracks) ... CD
Choreo/AVA, Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of Elmer Bernstein's best soundtracks of the 60s – written for this film set in the brothels of New Orleans in the 30s, with a mix of jazz and dramatic themes. The best cuts are the jazz-based ones – tunes that come across with more of a 60s groove than you'd expect, given the setting of the film, and which are played by a small combo. Other tracks are more serious – and titles include "Juke For Teresina", "Exit Kitty", "Hallie's Jazz", "Iron Rings", "Doll House", and "Walk On The Wild Side". CD

✨✧ Arthur Q Smith & OthersTrouble With Truth ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/1950s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A much-needed look at the country music songwriting legacy of Arthur Q Smith – an overlooked talent who passed along his songs to some of the greats of the early years of the genre, but hardly ever got some time in the spotlight on his own! The package is way more than just a CD – as it features a huge 122 page book that offers up the full story of Smith's short life and long legacy of music – along with a huge amount of photos and images. The set's divided up into two halves – the first featuring renditions of some of Smith's famous songs – the second featuring Smith's own acetates of the songs, most of which were fairly well-recorded – alongside some early demos of his songs by Don Gibson, Carl Butler, and Marty Stuart. In terms of depth – both in music and presentation – this whole thing's almost more at the level of the big Bear Family box sets! Smith recordings include "There's Forty Eight States In The Union", "Black Cat", "Country Mile", "Wild Mountain Honey", "The Angels Cried", "Missing In Action", "Blue Lights Blue Hearts Blue Music", and "A Song For Sale". Other recordings include "My Tears Don't Show" by Roy Acuff, "Rainbow At Midnight" by Carlisle Brothers, "Save A Little Dream For Me" by Moon Mullican, "We Crossed Our Hearts" by Ray Price, "I Wouldn't Change You If I Could" by Reno & Smiley, "Sample Kisses" by Don Gibson, "Crown Of Thorns" by Orval Prophet, "You Can't Conceal A Broken Heart" by Kitty Wells, "I've Got A Home Up In Glory" by Mother Maybelle Carter, and "I Overlooked An Orchid" by Carl Smith.

✨✧ VariousAin't I'm A Dog – 25 More Rockabilly Rave Ups ... CD
Sony, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of rockabilly in an incredible collection – one that will completely change your mind about the role of the major labels in music! If you think that back in the day, the big boys only recorded mainstream pop and soundtrack albums, think again – because in the 50s and 60s, the big companies were taking a hell of a lot of risks with their recordings – bringing fresh young talent into the studio all the time, even just to cut a single or two for the label! Case in point is this stunning set of work recorded by Columbia and Epic in the late 50s – work that crosses over with some of their pop and country work, but which also represents some killer singles that rival the best raw sounds from the smaller indies at the time. The set list is wonderful – full of twang, sneering vocals, and hard-driving rhythms – and you'll be especially surprised at some of the rockers here by artists you might only know from more familiar country. Titles include "Everybody's Rockin But Me" by Bobby Lord, "Ain't I'm A Dog" by Ronnie Self, "Who's Been Here" by Commonwealth Jones, "Purr Kitty Purr" by Sid King & The Five Strings, "Flip Out" by Billy Brown, "Sugar Diet" by Charlie Adams, "Party" by The Collins Kids, "Where The Rio De Rosa Flows" by Carl Perkins, "Hurricane"by Joe Maphis and Larry Collins, "New Studio Blues" by Link Wray, "It's A Great Big Day" by Derrell Felts, and "Goin Down That Road" by Ersel Hickey.

✨✧ VariousWhere Will You Be Christmas Day? – 1917 to 1959 ... CD
Dust To Digital, 1920s/1930s/1940s/1950s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A very vintage Christmas set – one that's pulled mostly from the same sort of scratchy 78rpm recordings we've come to love from the Dust To Digital label – a great blend of folk, blues, country, and gospel recordings – all of which offer up quite a change from the usual Holiday fare! The "dust" has been reduced to a minimum, but the records are clearly sourced from analogue discs – which adds to the earthy, timeless feel of the collection – almost as if you're unpacking a special box of records from way back in the attic, bringing them out every year along with the Christmas decorations! Features 24 tracks in all – work by Kansas City Kitty, Leroy Carr, Vera Hall Ward, Pawlo Humeniuk, Cotton Top Mountain Sanctified Singers, Lord Executor, Walter Davis, Bessie Smith, Lord Beginner, and many others.

✨✧ VariousKev Beadle Presents Private Collection 2 – Independent Jazz Sounds From The 70s & 80s ... LP
BBE (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Kev Beadle dips into his private collection, and comes up with a stunning batch of jazzy tracks in the process! The grooves here aren't as locked up as the cover might imply – because some of these cuts are ones the global scene has dug for years – but they're definitely the kind of tracks that really need reviving, especially in a wonderful collection like this – where each new cut seems to bring out the best of the others! All tracks are nice and long, and most have some sort of vocals – blended with modal rhythms, Brazilian touches, and strong soulful solos throughout. Titles include "Kitty Bey" by Byron Morris & Unity (which is not on the CD version), "Music In My Heart" by Kathryn Moses, "Yours Is The Light" by Paz, "Dreams Can Be" by Janet Lawson, "He Loves You" by Seawind, "I'm Tryin To Find A Way" by Stanley Cowell, "Ferrovias" by Grupo Medusa, and "Bamba" by Dimenzio. 8 tracks on the 2LP version. LP, Vinyl record album
