✨✧ La LupeFiebre Con El Diablo En El Cuerpo ... CD
Discuba, 1960. Used ... $6.99
Early work from La Lupe – but a set that already shows the highly dynamic style that would make her a real standout in 60s Latin music! A number of the tracks here are listed as "rock" in the rhythms – which doesn't exactly mean that Lupe's singing rock music, but already shows an ear for the kind of elements that would cross over to larger audiences than just the usual Latin crowd – almost a prequel to the styles that would come up even more during the Latin Soul years! Many of these numbers are kind of a Spanish-language equivalent of Jovem Guarda modes in mid 60s Brazil – although maybe a bit less rocking overall – and Lupe's vocals are amazing in the setting, almost even more striking than in later years. Titles include "Alone", "Quiereme Siempre", "Fiebre", "Con El Diablo En El Cuerpo", "Crazy Love", and "Es Una Bomba". CD

✨✧ La LupeQueen Does Her Own Thing ... CD
Tico, Late 60s. Used ... $6.99
Really wild work from La Lupe – a set of all English-language tunes, arranged with a really jazzy bounce by Harvey Averne! The sound here is a bit less Latin Soul than you might think, but it's still pretty darn compelling – kind of a dynamic, dramatic reworking of 60s pop modes – served up with Lupe's amazing vocals, and pushed into strange territory with her odd accent on the tunes, and Averne's equally forceful push on the grooves. Titles include "Touch Me", "Once We Loved", "Always Something There", "Love Is So Fine", "Ciao My Love", and "Down On Me". CD

✨✧ La LupeQueen Of Latin Soul/Reina De La Cancion Latina ... CD
Tico, Late 60s. Used ... $6.99
While Pete Rodriguez and Pete Terrace were battling it out for the "King Of The Boogaloo" title – La Lupe went ahead and dubbed herself "The Queen Of Latin Soul"! Oddly, though, the album's less of a strict Latin Soul effort than you might guess from the title – and is more of a mix of different modes, including some more heartfelt ballads that were more typical of Lupe's work – sung here with that heartfelt sense of soul that's most likely the real reason for her claim to the title! Arrangements are by Hector DeLeon, and bring a good focus on Lupe's incredible vocals through creative use of strings and percussion. Titles do include a Latin Soul version of "Fever", plus more traditional Latin tunes that include "Amor Gitano", "Aun", "Negruna", "Este Ritmo Sabroson", "Soy Sonerita", "La Tirana", and "Busamba".

✨✧ La LupeStop! I'm Free Again ... CD
Tico, 1972. Used ... $6.99
As if the title wasn't enough to prove that she was free again, the cover has a picture of this crazy Latin diva running down some railroad tracks in big hair, knee-high boots, and the tightest set of hot pants we've seen in a long time! Joe Cain, Louie Ramirez, and Sonny Bravo did the arrangements, so the LP's got a good New York Latin sound, and the track list includes "Free Again", "Vagabundo", "Mil Besos", and "Lupe, Lupe, Lupe".

Kanye WestLate Registration (limited edition digipack version) ... CD
Def Jam, 2005. Used ... $4.99
Time will tell whether the sophomore LP Late Registration will prove to be as revolutionary of a commercial force as College Dropout turned out to be – but it's a better album! We loved the debut as much as the rest of the world did, but this one's an easier listen from beginning to end. The production is tight, the guests earn their spots, and the whole thing's furiously soulful. Much is being made of LA hipster/orch pop troubadour Jon Brion's co-production, but this is Kanye's show. On one level Kanye can rock a subject as cliched as "Gold Digger", and still come out with a fresh perspective that runs deeper than it sounds on the surface, then deliver a serious track about the evils of the diamond trade that still rocks the ice. And those are just the first singles. Another great one! Tracks include "Wake Up Mr West", "Heard 'Em Say", "Touch The Sky" feat Lupe Fiasco, "Gold Digger" feat Jamie Foxx, "Drive Slow" feat Paul Wall & GLC, "My Way Home" feat Common, "Crack Music" feat Game, "Roses", "Bring Me Down" feat Brandy, "Diamonds From Sierra Leone" (rmx) feat Jay-Z, "We Major" feat Nas & Really Doe, "Gone" feat Consequence & Cam'Ron and more!

Mitch Ryder & The Detroit WheelsBreakout ... LP
New Voice, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $9.99
Blue-eyed soul from the legendary Mitch Ryder – and pretty darn gritty at that – steeped in styles borrowed from Memphis and Muscle Shoals, and given a bit of a color-blind twist on the Detroit scene of the late 60s! Mitch clearly loves the motor city sound of the 60s, but also takes things to farther points south, too – using elements that would be right at home on Stax or Atlantic Records, and coming up with a crossover sound that had his recorded almost ending up in more soul collections over the years than rock ones! Production is by pop maestro Bob Crewe, but it's surprisingly unadorned compared to some of Crewe's other work of the time – and the album bristles with sock-soul instrumentation from the Detroit Wheels, and loud, proud vocals from Mitch. There's a bit of garaey guitars in the mix, too – making for a mighty nice hybrid of styles – and titles include "Shakin With Linda", "You Get Your Kicks", "Any Day Now", "I Need Help", "Little Latin Lupe Lu", "Walkin The Dog", "I Had It Made", and the classic "Breakout".

✨✧ Soul JazzmenInhlupeko (Distress) ... LP
Matsuli (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A tremendous bit of South African jazz – recorded in the years after bigger names like Hugh Masekela and The Blue Notes had left for greener pastures, but when there were still plenty of great artists back at home! The Soul Jazzmen have this laidback, souful sound that's very much in keeping with their name – part 60s soul jazz, with some modal touches at the best moments, partly the spiritual styles that were just coming into play in the US, especially in the wake of John Coltrane – with open-ended rhythms that allow for these really great tenor solos from Dudu Makasi, whose work alone is worth the price of the record! Dudu is wonderful – part old school tenorist, with roots in the Chicago school of the 50s – but also partly a spiritualist too, although one that never gets too far out or overindulgent. Rhythms are from the trio of Tete Mbambisa on piano, Pych Big-T Stsele on bass, and Mafufu Jama on drums – and the quartet come together brilliantly on titles that include "Mr Mecca", "Relaxin", "Inhlupeko", "How Old Is The World", and "Dollar The Great".

✨✧ Lupe FiascoFood & Liquor ... LP
Atlantic, 2006. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The official full length debut from Lupe Fiasco – another wholly unique Chicago MC who's gotten the runaround from seemingly every major label in the biz – and a record that lives up to the long-building hype! Frankly, we were scared almost immediately when we heard the description "skate rap" applied to "Kick, Push" – only to find our fears unfounded. Lupe's only going to be himself – which is what makes him such a strong MC (other than the masterful breath control) – and that individualistic approach is proving to be Chicago's gift to mainstream hip hip. The Neptunes provide one of their best productions of the past couple years for "I Gotcha" – but the soundtracky productions by Soundtrakk (natch) are even better. Other tracks include "Real" feat Sara Green, "Just Might Be OK" feat Gemini, "Kick, Push", "The Instrumental" feat Jonah Matranga, "He Say She Say" feat Gemini & Sarah Green, "Sunshine", "Daydreamin'" feat Jill Scott, "The Cool" (produced by Kanye) , "Hurt Me Soul", "Pressure" feat Jay-Z, "American Terrorist" feat Matthew Santos, "The Cool", "The Emperor's Soundtrack" and more!
