✨✧ Koko TaylorKoko Taylor ... LP
Chess, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Probably THE album you truly need to own from Koko Taylor – and a completely great one, recorded way before she'd become a cliched fixture paying the bills on the frat boy tourist blues scene! The tracks here were recorded over a few years in mid-to-late 60s Chicago – mostly with production from Willie Dixon, who also co-wrote most of the tunes on the set! The groove is nice and gritty – electric Chess Chicago blues at it's finest, but also with a good sense of soul in the mix – and tracks include the fiery hit "Wang Dang Doodle", plus "Fire", "29 Ways", "I Don't Care Who Knows", "Nitty Gritty", and "Love You Like A Woman". Amazing stuff! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Koko TaylorBasic Soul ... CD
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

Manfredo FestManifestations ... CD
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

VariousAnn Arbor Blues & Jazz Festival 1972 ... CD
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
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.

VariousLa Noire Vol 1 – Have Mercy Uncle Sam ... LP
Doghouse & Bone (France), 1960s. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99
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.

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!

PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... 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.

Gyedu-Blay AmbolleySimigwa ... CD
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

Eugen CiceroRokoko-Jazz ... LP
MPS, 1965. Near Mint- ... $8.99
One of the greatest jazz-meets-classical albums from pianist Eugen Cicero – thanks to a good amount of Rokoko in the grooves! The more flowery, flourishing style of the Rokoko era proves to be a perfect foil for Cicero's incredible approach to the keys – one that lets him bring even more complicated touches to the piano, while still working with tightly jazzy rhythms from the team of Peter Witte on bass and Charlie Antolini on drums! Witte and Antolini are great throughout – keeping things tight and focused, and making the record way more than a virtuostic exploration of classical themes. As much a jazz record as the best Swingle Singers sides from the 60s – with titles that include a great original called "Bach's Softly Sunrise", plus Bach's "Solfeggio C Moll", Couperin's "L'Adoslecente", and Scarlatti's "Sonate C-Dur".

✨✧ VariousBeginner's Guide To Afro Lounge (3CD box set) ... CD
Nascente (UK), Late 90s/Early 2000s. Used 3CD ... $9.99
A much better collection than you'd guess from the title – even if the individual CDs are named "chill", "bar", and "club" – all words we're pretty suspicious of these days in compilations! The collection is a shift in Nascente's "Beginner's Guide" series – as most of that work usually focuses on older or more "authentic" sounds – and provides a good spectrum of recent world music at a good price. This set, though, crosses into crossover territory – and features a wide range of recent club work with a strong Africanist inspiration – tracks by groups from both sides of the Atlantic, often tuned with acoustic percussion or other rootsier elements, but usually cast into a more modern house or club groove. The quality of the tunes goes way past the usual major label attempt at this sort of set, and at this price for 3CDs, you're getting a might nice deal! 30 tracks in all – with titles that include "Muddy Muddy" by Jazztronik, "Freetown" by Future Loop Foundation, "Souka Nayo (Thievery Corporation rmx)" by Baaba Maal, "Munkaroo" by Alice Russell, "Afro Rainbow" by Raw Deal, "Funkconstruction" by Funky Lowlives, "The Bushoong" by Moodorama, "In Control" by Ramses Revolution, "Bababatteur (Quantic rmx)" by Awa Band, "No Time (Moonstarr rmx)" by Afrodizz, "Funky Nassau" by Ju Ju Orchestra, "Mama Don't Want No Gun (Beatfanatic rework)" by Kokolo, "Take Your Time Change Your Mind (Faze Action rmx)" by Quantic Soul Ordhestra, and "Beng Beng Beng (Da Lata rmx)" by Femi Kuti.

VariousWorld Ends – Afro Rock & Psychedelia In 1970s Nigeria ... CD
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

✨✧ Mississippi Fred McDowellI Do Not Play No Rock N Roll (180 gram pressing) ... LP
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
