✨✧ Kanye WestLate Registration ... LP
Def Jam, 2005. Used 2LP ... Out Of Stock
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! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousGirls With Guitars Take Over (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $22.99 26.99
A set that's every bit as wonderful as you'd guess from its title and cover – a killer package of all-girl rockers, and one that's filled with rare gems from the 60s! The material here is definitely a lot harder-hitting than more familiar girl group sounds of the 60s – as the tunes are drenched in plenty of fuzz, recorded with a garagey style, and often rock just as hard as any male cuts from the time! Most material is by US groups, but there's also some surprising gems from overseas too – and the package is a much-needed look at this under-documented side of 60s rock and roll. Titles include "Like A Snake" by The Hairem, "Gonna Have A Good Time" by The Clingers, "Last Train To Liverpool" by The Plommons, "Wake Me Shake Me" by The Wrongh Black Bag, "Little Latin Lupe Lu" by The Debutantes, "I Got A Guy" by Kathy Lynn & The Playboys, "I'd Rather Fight Than Switch" by The Tomboys, "How Do You Do It" by The Lady Bugs, "Lies" by The Delmonas, "He's Not There Anymore" by The Chymes, and "You Just Gotta Know My Mind" by Karen Verros. LP, Vinyl record album

Soul JazzmenInhlupeko (Distress) ... LP
Matsuli (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $36.99
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 FiascoDrogas Light ... CD
1st & 15th, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first of a proposed trilogy from Chi's Lupe Fiasco – and his first official independent album after stepping away from Atlantic! Lupe had concerns over the major label system stifling his creativity, so it should be no surprise that he's as lyrically-focused and deeply thoughtful as ever here – but what's suprising is how immediately engaging the production is, considering the move away from commericial expectations – it's accessible ear candy on a surface level, but soul baring in lyricism – win-win! Guests include Ty Dolla $ign, Bianca Sings, Rick Ross & Big KRIT, Salim and others – and titles include "Dopamin Lit", "NGL", "Promise", "Made In The USA", "It's Not Design", "Wild Child", "More Than My Heart", "Law", "Kill", "Tranquillo" and more.

✨✧ Laurindo Almeida & Charlie ByrdBrazilian Soul ... CD
Concord, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really sweet session that's very much in the mode of Almeida and Byrd's classic bossa-styled work! The set features the pair playing together in a jazzy acoustic guitar mode – working through a host of Brazilian numbers with backing provided only by the percussion of Milt Holland, plus additional bass. The sound is wonderful – light, breezy, and jazzy – but also with some of the bright touches of the late 70s Bay Area Brazilian jazz sound. Titles include "Stone Flower", "For Jeff", "Carioca", "Choro II", "Famoso", and "Luperce". CD
