Koko TaylorMighty Love/Instant Everything ... 7-inch
Yambo, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
An obscure single from Koko – featuring 2 tracks written by Willie Dixon! "Mighty Love" is a slow bluesy number – a bit like Etta James, with horns sweeping up in the background, and a chorus supporting Koko on the lyrics. The real charmer, though, is "Instant Everything" – an upbeat bit of funky blues – nicely chunky on the drums, and with a slightly wry lyric that goes nicely with the groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Luther IngramI Don't Want To Be Right – The KoKo Singles Vol 2 ... CD
Koko/Kent (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sublime second chapter in the career of Memphis soul singer Luther Ingram – one of the greatest talents of his generation, represented here by some of his best work ever! Ingram first got his start doing rougher, more fragile soul tunes – but by the time of these 70s recordings, he'd really found his voice – and hit a more confident, more sensuous style that could easily go head to head with Al Green or any of his southern soul contemporaries. There's a key Stax connection to most of the material here, but the sound's a bit different too – thanks to the production efforts of Koko label head Johnny Baylor, who gives Ingram a sound that's nicely apart from the pack. The booklet features a really in-depth look at the music – 14 pages of track-by-track notes on the tunes – and the CD features 19 singles recorded over most of the mid 70s. Titles include "Missing You", "Puttin Game Down", "If Loving You Is Wrong I Don't Want To Be Right", "Always", "Help Me Love", "Love Ain't Gonna Run Me Away", "Ain't Good For Nothing", "These Are The Things", "Let's Steal Away To The Hideaway", "I Like The Feeling", "I'm Gonna Be The Best Thing", "Do You Love Somebody", "Get To Me", "How I Miss My Baby", and "You Were Made For Me".

Savoy (Japan), 1945/Early 60s. Used ... $9.99
Well, it's not the whole Charlie Parker Story – but the album does feature some great material from a very famous session, recorded on 11/26/1945, originally issued on 78s, along with extra tracks, compiled here in one of Savoy's posthumous Bird LPs from the early 60s. 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!

Charlie ParkerComplete Savoy Studio Sessions (5LP set) ... LP
Savoy, Late 40s. Near Mint- 5LP Box Set ... $34.99
You'll be hard pressed to find a better collection of Charlie Parker's classic work on vinyl! Bird's great recordings for Savoy have often been poorly packaged over the years, but here you get the whole batch of seminal bop sides by the pioneering artist of the genre! Bird's the leader on most of these sides, but there's a nice set of recordings under Tiny Grimes and a very young Miles Davis too, with a host of players from the dawn of the bebop age, including Dizzy Gillespie, Bud Powell, Sadik Hakim, John Lewis, Duke Jordan, Curly Russell, Tommy Potter and Max Roach. An as you'd expect from this kind of set, you get loads of multiple takes so you can hear these pioneering players creating the style that would change the face of jazz forever. Put together in 1978, this set features 66 tracks in all, spread out over 5 LPs, with a nicely annotated book, and includes "I'll Always Love You Just The Same","Romance Without Finance", "Billie's Bounce", "Now's The Time", "Thriving On A Riff", "Koko", "Donna Lee", "Chasin The Bird", "Buzzy", "Milestones", "Half Nelson", "Another Hair Do", "Bird Gets The Worm", "Barbados", "Ah-Leu-Cha", "Constellation", "Parker's Mood", "Perhaps","Marmaduke", "Steeplechase" and more!

Max RoachMax Roach 4 Plays Charlie Parker ... LP
Mercury, 1957/1958. Very Good ... $14.99
A killer batch of hardbop tracks – no-nonsense, straight-ahead, and with all the fire of Roach's work with Clifford Brown! The set was recorded a few years after the untimely death of the Brown/Roach group – and although the album's got "Charlie Parker" in the title, there's a lot more going on here than just a bop revival mode. Players include Kenny Dorham, Hank Mobley, and George Coleman – and the album's got that Prestige Records feel from the late 50s, similar to some of Mobley's own work for that label at the time. Titles include "Yardbird Suite", "Confirmation", "Koko", "Billie's Bounce", and "Au Privave". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Mercury pressing with deep groove. Vinyl has a mark that clicks a bit on "Yardbird Suite".)

VariousAnn Arbor Blues & Jazz Festival 1972 ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $11.99
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.

VariousLiving Is Hard – West African Music In Britain 1927 to 1929 ... CD
Honest Jons (UK), Late 20s. Used ... $9.99
A fascinating collection of West African music recorded in England during the late 20s – material done for the Zonophone label as part of a big wave of colonial immigration to London at the time! The package is one of the deepest-digging we've seen so far on the Honest Jon's label – and the music, although quite old, is really incredible – done in a range of African styles and languages, and presented with surprising clarity, given the age of the originals. There's a feel here that's almost like ethnographic recordings done in the homelands many years later – and the package is supported by some wonderful notes that paint a vivid picture of the lives and struggles of African immigrants in the UK during the period. Titles include "Garse Yer Fido" by Oni Johnson, "Nitsi Koko Ko Ko" by Isaac Jackson, "Bukay" by John Mugat, "Asin Asin (part 2)" by Kumasi Trio, "Rue Bai Rue Bai" by James Tucker, "Obu Kofi" by Ben Simmons, "Abowe Dsane Nmaka Tso" by The Ga Quartet, and "Wasiu Dowu" by Nicholas De Heer.

✨✧ VariousHighlife Time 2 – Nigerian & Ghanian Classics From The Golden Years ... CD
Vampi Soul (Spain), 1950s/1960s/1970s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An expansive look at Nigerian and Ghanian Highlife from Vampi Soul – the second in their Highlife Time series – excellent stuff from the heart of the Highlife era, as well as some standout numbers from later on, plus the roots of it from much earlier! Many of the tunes are from the 50s to 70s, but it goes back as far as the late 20s for a pair of tracks by George Williams Aingo – one of the earliest African recording artists – and as late as the mid 80s for a couple worthy tracks. It's got 19 tracks on 2CDs and really solid booklet of notes & photos. Includes "Yei Ngebewoh" by ET Menseh & The Tempos, "Akwanoma Hiahii" by Rambler Dance Band, "Muntie (Highlife Charanga)" by Ramblers International, "Eyaa Dudm" by Professional Uhuru Band, "Ogiobo" by Sir Victor Uwaifo & His Titibitis Of Africa, "Osondi Owendi" by Chief Stephen Osita Osadebe, "Koko Ahataw Kur" by George Williams Aingo and more.

✨✧ Yusef LateefYusef Lateef (Prestige 2LP set) ... LP
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

✨✧ Orchestra BaobabNight At Club Baobab – Senegalese Dance Music Of The 70s ... CD
Oriki (France), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous compilation of rare work by one of the hippest African groups of the 70s – the mighty Orchestra Baobab, a combo who wove together many different strands of jazz, funk, and soul! The tunes here are all live ones – recorded in the mid 70s in the group's home turf at Club Baobab, and often done in a looser, more open mode than some of their better-known sessions – a perfect setting for the complicated rhythms, snakey horn parts, and soulful vocals that emerge as the set moves on! A few tracks here get nice and funky – funkier than even we would have expected from the group – and others maintain a compellingly creative sound that really keeps things interesting, with plenty of exotic overtones and otherworldly styles! The whole thing's great – way more than just a collection of 70s Afro Funk, and a record that's nicely links up the worlds of both Fela and Mulatu through its creative interplay of sounds. CD features 13 tracks that include "Jin Ma Jin Ma", "Souleymane", "Saf Mana Dem", "Kelen Ati Leen", "Seeri Koko", "Liti Liti", "Dirarabi", "On Verra", "Cabral", "Wango", "Sey", and "Yolanda". CD

Heavenly Sweetness (Netherlands), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The set's billed as "the perfect soundtrack to chill on the beach", but it's way more than that – and besides, when we always used to go to the beach, all the radios were always blaring classic rock or mainstream pop – and this collection is way way deeper than that! Guts have hand-picked all the tracks themselves – and the music is a sweet blend of jazzy and groovy styles from around the world – with an especially strong representation of the kind of post-colonial sounds that broke big on the European scene in the early 80s, served up here in tunes from Cameroon, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Martinique, Malaysia, and other points global! Titles include a great soca remake of "Sweetest Taboo" by Rebles – plus "Tonight" by Sookie with Jeannine Otis, "LA Nights" by Yasuko Agawa, "Sweet Dole" by Andre Marie Tala, "Lite Low" by Tyna Onwudiwe, "And We'll Make Love" by Ricardo Marrero & The Group, "Femmes Pays Douces" by Raphael Toine, "Teardrops & Wine" by Salero, "War For Ground" by Momo Joseph, "Pasto" by Synchro Rhythmic Eclectic Language, "I Need You Now" by Robert Riggins, "Dreams Of Love" by Claude Genteuil, and "Si T'Es Mal Dans Ta Peau" by Koko Ateba.

Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1961/1962. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
Groovy sounds from 60s France, plus a few Canadian tracks too – all numbers that take off in the globally-popular twist style of the time, but which feature French language lyrics in the lead! The "twist" here is taken in a nicely wide way – more romping rockers that draw plenty of inspiration from the American scene at the start of the 60s – upbeat, and aimed at the dancefloor, but also served up with modes that point the way towards modder French pop to come! A number of cuts are French remakes of American tunes, but others are originals – and as the set moves on, there's also a number of instrumental groovers too. As always with this label, the package is huge – 75 titles in all, plus notes in English too – for titles that include "Danse Le Twist Avec Moi" by Johnny Hallyday, "Twist A Saint Tropez" by Chats Sauvages, "Ali Baba Twist" by Koko, "Twist Twist Senora" by Burt Blanca, "En Dansant Le Twist" by Gillian Hills, "La Lecon De Twist" by Nancy Holloway, "Capital Twist" by Tremolos, "Twist Contre Twist" by Jean Roger & Denise Filiatrault, Twister" by Guy Roger, "Ya Ya Twist" by Petula Clark, "Twisting Baby" by Jacky Seven", and lots lots more!

Clean Feed (Portugal), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really unusual combination of instruments – or, that is, a familiar combination – but used here in really unusual ways! The group features Taiko Saito on vibes and marimba, Niko Meinhold on piano, and Tobias Schirmer on clarinet and bass clarinet – and all instruments are often used at the gentlest side of their sonic range – so that the flow of the tones together is almost more important than the performance of any individual member – always tuneful, even when dark – but also extremely creative in the way the sounds are put together! We're used to hearing modern clarinet players work with unusual phrasings from the time of Jimmy Giuffre onward – but we've never heard that instrument combined this way with piano and vibes – with a sound that reminds us that the right players can always unlock new possibilities from familiar instruments. Titles include "Wellen", "Etude In Eb", "Snow Moon Flower", "Bikkuri", "Komodo No Kodomo", and "Feldmannchen". CD

Academy, 1975. New Copy ... $14.99 22.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousClassical Gassers – Pop Gems Inspired By The Great Composers ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really cool set of classic pop songs – and we mean that in more ways than one! The tracks here all borrow a tune from much older classical music compositions – but then turn the material into a springboard for a swinging set of 60s arrangements – music that moves between raw instrumentals to sweet girl group pop – with stops along the way for a bit of soul, garage, and other modes as well! In fact, some of these cuts are so successful with their classical themes, they've often come to be better-known than the originals – at least by folks like us, who were raised more on the sound of the radio than the symphony hall. And if you're worried about things being too sleepy, don't – as the package is really lively, and has all the best punch and sparkle of the Golden Age Of American Pop series from Ace – but maybe even more, given the weirdness of some of these tunes. Titles include "Sabre Dance" by Love Sculpture, "A Groovy Kind Of Love" by The Mindbenders, "Attack" by The Toys, "Asia Minor" by Kokomo, "Goodbye Cruel World" by James Darren, "Nut Rocker" by B Bumble & The Stingers, "Mountain Of Our Love" by Lesley Miller, "She Wears My Ring" by Roy Orbison, "Swan Lake" by The Cats, "My Hero" by Renee St Clair, "Stranger In Paradise" by The Galens, "Peter & The Wolf" by Harpers Bizarre, "Whiter Shade Of Pale" by Shorty Long, and "The Wedding" by Julie Rogers.

✨✧ 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".

Fanon (France), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The French Antilles have been a huge source of influence on the global scene of the past few decades – especially during the big years of the zouk explosion, which opened up the island grooves to a huge global audience! But there's a much richer history of Antilles music that doesn't always get exposure – and part of that is presented here, in a beautiful batch of 70s material that paves the way towards 80s world music trends – but with earthier examples from the styles of compas and cadence! The rhythms are complex, but immediately compelling too – often upbeat and infectious, and in some spots touched by a bit of a 70s funk influence too – and most numbers have horn parts that are as upbeat and powerful as some of the best salsa work of the time, but turned towards slightly different ends. The grooves have so many different strands of sounds working together at once, the result is completely mindblowing – and the well-chosen tracks on the set are supported with notes in French and English that really illuminate this overlooked history. Titles include "La Vie Musique" by Black Affairs, "Si Bon Di Bon" by Simon Jurad, "Cail La Mande Rouse" by Toto Necessite, "Kokoye" by Combo Creole, "Money First" by Selecta Martinique, "Pale Creole" by Rodrigue Millien & Blagueur, "Coeur A Moin" by Belles Combo, and "Marchande" by Gervais Nerva.
