New Koko TaylorBasic Soul ... CD CD format
Chess (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Basic soul, plenty of blues, and a fair bit of funk as well – a killer from Koko Taylor, recorded in that best style of late Chess Records! Koko sings here more like a funky female soul artist than on her later blues – and the record crackles with energy right from the start, thanks to impeccable production from Willie Dixon – who really knows how to keep things lean and mean! The core group is nice and tight – and all Chicago-bred – Joe Young on guitar, Lafayette Leake on piano, and Louis Satterfield on bass – and Gene Barge added just a bit of horns over the top, to deepen the soul of the tunes. Titles include "Pollution", "Tease Your Man", "That's The Way Love Is", "Un Huh My Baby", "It's A Poor Dog", "I Need More & More", and "Let Me Love You Baby". CD

New Luther IngramI've Been Here All The Time ... LP LP format
Koko, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tremendous set from Luther Ingram – proof that the singer had way more to offer than just his famous southern soul singles! The record's got a really deep feel from the start – kind of a slow-burning sound that moves way past easy soul music styles, and offers up Ingram as one of the most mature singers of his generation. The Bar-Kays handle some of the backings, and they're also quite good here too – much rootsier at times than on their own records, but still with a hint of funk as well. Titles include "Ghetto Train", "I'll Just Call You Honey", "Since You Don't Want Me", "I'll Love You Until The End", "Be Good To Me Baby", "Ain't That Loving You", and "You Were Made For Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Manfredo FestManifestations ... CD CD format
Tabu (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $16.99
An incredible batch of Brazilian fusion – cut by keyboardist Manfredo Fest, and one of the few records he ever waxed in the US during the 70s! The record mixes Fest's soaring Brazilian groove with a tight soulful set of arrangements by Jerry Peters – a bit club-oriented, with a similar sound to some of the other records on the Tabu label at the time, but always sensitive to Fest's playing and writing – especially his Brazilian roots! The record features wonderful vocals by Roberta Davis – a very soulful singer who had a hip wordless style that was similar to Tania Maria's at the time – breezy, scatting, and very nice. Her work really makes the record sparkle, working perfectly with Fest's jazzy electric keyboards in a perfect way! Titles include "Jungle Kitten", "Koko & Leeroe", "Arigo", and "Who Needs It". Sweet reissue – in book-style cover, with new liner notes and an interview with Jerry Peters. CD

New Gene HarrisNexus ... LP LP format
Blue Note, 1976. Very Good ... $4.99
A great little solo set from Gene Harris – and a perfect example of that magical time after he'd left the Three Sounds, but hadn't yet hit the more standard styles of later years – a period when Harris was really experimenting with a wide range of keyboards and sounds! The set has arranger Jerry Peters weighing in – bringing some of his own quirky touches into play with Gene's wonderful work on keyboards – which includes plenty of Fender Rhodes and moog, as well as other keys of the time too. Funky titles include "Koko & Lee Rose", "Funky Business", "Rushin Roulette", "HRD (Boogie)", and "Gettin Down Country" – and the set's got a great mellow moody soul track called "Prayer 76", with a bit of a Roy Ayers feel. LP, Vinyl record album

Savoy, 1945/Early 60s. Used ... $1.99

The group includes Miles Davis on trumpet, Bud Powell on piano, Curley Russell on bass, and Max Roach on drums – and titles include original and alternate takes of "Thriving From A Riff", "Meandering", "Koko", "Now's The Time", and "Billie's Bounce", all in early famous versions!

VariousAnn Arbor Blues & Jazz Festival 1972 ... CD CD format
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99 18.98
A classic set from this legendary Detroit festival – a mighty assemblage of roots and jazz performers that was put together by John Sinclair! The event was legendary at the time – and has lived on strongly via this great recording by Atlantic – one that really gets at the special fire of all the performers, and their very enthusiastic welcome by the audience too! Most of the material here is blues – but the set features a key track from Sun Ra & His Solar Myth Arkestra – a performance of "Live Is Splendid" from the Space Is The Place Suite. Other tracks include "I Walk On Gilded Splinters" by Dr John, "Road Runner" by Jr Walker, "Wang Dang Doodle" by Koko Taylor, "Gambler's Blues" by Otis Rush, "Ain't That Loving You" by Bobby Blue Bland, "Honey Bee" by Muddy Waters, "Form Kinetic" by CJQ, "Dust My Broom" by Johnny Shines, and "Goin Down" by Freddie King.

VariousFree Soul – The Treasures Of Tabu ... CD CD format
Tabu/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $23.99
A deeper set of grooves than usual from Tabu Records – not just the label's hits or disco singles, but a well-chosen batch of tracks that fits nicely with the other collections in the Free Soul series! Most numbers here are mellow or midtempo – and they step around with a mix of modern soul and 80s groove styles, often with some really sweet touches on the instrumentation that come as a nice surprise. Tabu was definitely one of the classiest soul labels of its generation, and that really comes through here – in a sweet batch of 18 tracks that includes "Just Be Good To Me" by SOS Band, "Changin" by Sharon Ridley, "Destiny" by Woods Empire, "Waiting For Someone" by Brainstorm, "Koko & Leeroe" by Manfredo Fest, "Look At Us Now" by Alexander O'Neal, "For Lovers Only" by General Caine, "Brand New Day" by Brainstorm, "Tell Me If You Still Care" by SOS Band, "Saturday Love" by Cherrelle, and "Anything For You" by Anacostia.

New Various80s Soul Classics Vol 6 – Sweet Soul Vibes & Funky Club Tunes ... CD CD format
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A diverse batch of 80s soul groovers – with great tunes by superstars and lesser-remembered soul heroes and heroines alike! It's jam-packed 2CD set of tunes, many of which were no doubt popular in their heyday, but they're anything but ubiquitous these days. It's got a nice mix of styles, too, with some 70s soul jazz influenced numbers – some of them by genuine 70s soul jazz figures – plus some leaner synth funk flavored tunes, bouncing clubby tunes, breezy duets and more. 24 tracks on 2CDs: "Whatcha' Gonna Do" by Average White Band, "Lies" by Shock, "Emotions' by Starpoint, "Feelin' Free" by Jermaine Jackson, "Starstruck" by Patti Austin, "Chillin' Out"by Curtis Hairston, "Love In Your Eyes" by Vaneese Thomas, "I'm In Love With You" by Koko-Pop, "I'm Freaky" by O'Bryan, "Palm Of Your Hand" by Peabo Bryson & D'Atra Hicks and more.

New VariousLa Noire Vol 1 – Have Mercy Uncle Sam ... LP LP format
Doghouse & Bone (France), 1960s. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rollicking set of classic and should-be classic tunes on Chess, King, Fame, Jubilee and other iconic labels – plus some comparably rare gems – all in touch with the bluesy roots, and laying the groundwork for the soul scenes to come! This first La Noire compilation has one killer tune after another, many from that pivotal early 60s period when the influences of the grander rhtyhm & blues orchestras of the preceding decade were finding their way into a stripped down to the bare essentials sound – with crack rhythm sections, tight horns, and masterful vocals. Includes tracks by solo legends like Bobby Bland and Koko Taylor, the tight group sounds of The Spellbinders, The X-Cellents, and much more. Great stuff! Includes "Just You And I" by Guitar Red, "You Can't Judge A Book By It's Cover" by Dell Mack, "Don't Cry No More" by Bobby Bland, "Can't Stay Away From You" by Tarheel Slim and Little Ann, "Hey, Little Willie" by The X-Cellents, "Wang Dang Doodle" by Koko Taylor, "Uncle Bud" by Billy Bland, "Ride On Red, Ride On" by Louisiana Red and more.

New Yusef LateefYusef Lateef (Prestige 2LP set) ... LP LP format
Prestige, Late 50s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A collection of the wonderful late 50s work by Lateef – repackaged and reissued here in the 70s and pulled from 3 different LPs issued onteh New Jazz imprint: Other Sounds, Cry! Tender and Into Something. Played in that "jazz exotic" style he was using at the time, the material is a mixture of the lyrical hard bop of the Horace Silver group, with some of the more spare and eastern styles used by groups like the early Sun Ra Arkestra, with nice modal playing and just the right amount of orientalist touches. Players include trumpeter Lonnie Hillyer and pianists Hugh Lawson and Barry Harris, all of whom were part of the super-hip Detroit scene that spawned Lateef, plus the agile Frank Gant and Elvin Jones on traps. 13 tracks in all: "Taboo", "Mahaba", "Ecaps", "Anastasia", "Minor Mood", "All Alone", "Koko's Tune", "Rasheed", "I'll Remember April", "Cry! Tender", "Butter's Blues", "Dopolous" and "Sea Breeze". LP, Vinyl record album

Gyedu-Blay AmbolleySimigwa ... CD CD format
Academy, 1975. New Copy ... $11.99 17.99
A holy grail of 70s African Funk – and not just for the unusual look of the cover! The set's a really unique one – almost rootsier than most of the better-known Ghanian grooves of the time, but funkier too – with a brilliant blend of raw percussion, quirky basslines, and some smoking horn parts that are a lot more American soul and funk than the usual 70s African groove! The whole thing's stunning all the way through – a record that totally informs an understanding of its generation, yet in ways that no other record can touch. Wonderful all the way through, with not a bit of filler – and all cuts are right on the money for any fan of African funk! Titles include "Toffie", "Fa No Dem Ara", "This Hustling World", "Kwaakwaa", and "Akoko Ba". CD

VariousWorld Ends – Afro Rock & Psychedelia In 1970s Nigeria ... CD CD format
Soundway (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $21.99
One of the coolest collections of rare psychedelia we've heard in a while from anywhere in the world – this one focusing on Afro Rock & psych from 70s Nigeria – among the greatest releases to date on the Soundway label, which only does great work! The music has the touchstone elements of raw garage funk & rock sounds from around the globe at the time – fuzzed out guitars and organs, searing solos, hard grooving rhythms and passionate vocals. But the guitars and rhythms are uniquely African, too, with highlife and Afrobeat gestures along with the global psychedelic soul sounds. 33 tracks on 2CDs: "Nwantini/Die Die" by The Ify Jerry Krusade, "Rough Rider" by The Hygrades, "Yem Efe" by Tony Grey Super 7, "Ikoko" yb Eppi Fanio, "All Night Long" by Bongos Ikwue, "Babalawo" by The Thermometers, "Eti Ufok" by The Ceejebs, "Active Action" by The Action 13, "Onye Ije" by The Strangers, "Bullwalk" by The Comrades, "Egwu Aja" by Ofo The Black Company and more. Comes with a great booklet of notes and the always top shelf Soundway treatment in general. Perfection! CD

A beautiful album that perfectly mixes both sides of Aretha – the earlier hard-hitting soulster, and the developing vocalist with a rich talent for more sophisticated material. The album features the anthemic title cut in Aretha's famous version – plus the sample favorite "Rock Steady", the mellow groover "Day Dreaming", the hit "Brand New Me", and the strangely compelling "First Snow In Kokomo".

New Mississippi Fred McDowellI Do Not Play No Rock N Roll (180 gram pressing) ... LP LP format
Capitol/4 Men With Beards, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An incredible record from Mississippi Fred McDowell – a set that was issued on a big label, but which has a wonderfully rootsy feel throughout – in a way that almost out-does any work from the indie blues labels of the time! The package was put together by Tommy Couch as an early Malaco production – but it's even more stripped-down than later blues work from those studios – as it features mostly just Fred on vocals and guitar, introducing himself and his music – then working through these incredible inflections on electric guitar, which are as far from the rockish sound of all the crossover blues that McDowell promises he won't provide in the title! Really timeless stuff, brilliantly recorded – with cuts that include "Red Cross Store", "61 Highway", "Jesus Is On The Mainline", "Kokomo Me Baby", and "Good Morning Little School Girl". LP, Vinyl record album
