✨✧ ShaktiShakti With John McLaughlin ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great post-Mahavishnu work from guitarist John McLaughlin – the debut of his excellent Shakti combo, a group who mixed Indian music with some tighter fusion moments! The style here is a lot leaner than some of McLaughlin's previous experiments – a small group lineup with violin from L Shankar, plus tabla, percussion, ghantam, mridangam, and John's guitar – all used together in really wonderful ways. The Indian roots of the music are often quite strong, and McLaughlin plays a fair bit of acoustic guitar in a respectful way that never intrudes too much on the other players – a huge change from his jamming fusion of the early 70s. The album features 3 long tracks – "Joy", "Lotus Feet", and "What Need Have I For This". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Shakti with John McLaughlinNatural Elements (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
Plenty of Natural Elements here – thanks to the Indian roots of the Shakti group! The group's a wonderful collaboration between guitarist John McLaughlin – often playing here on acoustic, far from his earlier fusion – and a trio of Indian musicians, including the great L Shankhar on violin! The sound is soaring, spacious, and makes almost a fusion-like use of some of the elements – but without nearly as many of the cliches as you might expect. The sound quality is excellent, and a further great aspect of the record – and titles include "Mind Ecology", "Face To Face", "The Daffodil & The Eagle", "Get Down & Sruti", and "Peace Of Mind". CD

✨✧ VariousPhil's Spectre – A Wall Of Soundalikes ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's not a typo in the title – the compilation's a collection of tracks that all bear the mark of Phil Spector – Spector's Spectres, if you will! It's a well known fact that Phil had a monumental impact on 60s rock, pop, and soul music – as his "wall of sound" production style forever transformed the sound of the single back in the sixties. And although there's been lots of compilations that focus on Phil's own work, this is the first one we've seen to showcase his proteges and contemporaries – a surprisingly wide range of studio talents who all picked up on Phil's tricks and twists! The tunes on the set include some great 60s soul and pop numbers, and a bunch of the tracks are reissued legally here for the first time. Plus, the set's got some wonderful liner notes – really taking you through the tracks, and explaining the connection to Spector and the overall sound of the music. Features production work by Nick DeCaro, Van McCoy, Jan Davis, Abner Spector, Brian Holland & Lamont Dozier, Brian Wilson, Sonny Bono, and Jack Nitszche – and titles that include "When You Walk In The Room" by Jackie DeShannon, "When The Boy's Happy" by The Four Pennies, "Hang On" by The Wall Of Sound, "Tremblin" by Gene Pitney, "A Little Love" by Alder Ray, "On The Spanish Side" by The Corsairs & Landy McNeil, "Why Do Fools Fall In Love" by The Beach Boys, "Just You" by Sonny & Cher, "I Can't Make It Alone" by PJ Proby, "And That Reminds Me" by The Dolls, "You're So Fine" by Dorothy Berry, "Missing My Baby" by Clydie King, and "I Just Couldn't Say" by Lorraine & The Delights.

VariousSouth African Funk Experience –- Zulu, Funky Disco, Shebeen Jive, Jo 'Burg Funk, Spiritual Jazz Dance , Shangaan & More ... CD
Nascente (UK), 1970s/1980s. Used ... $14.99
An excellent collection of funky tracks from South Africa – most of them with a slightly different feel than work you'd get on other Afro Funk compilations – and we mean that in a good way, too! Some of the artists are names you'd recognize from later recordings of the big South African crossover years of the 80s and 90s – but they're represented here by harder, edgier cuts from the early days – and mixed up with some more obscure acts, too – which really helps bring a freshness to the set, especially given the interweaving of genres that goes on – as you might guess from the extended sub-title of the CD! Titles include "Sangoma" by Malombo, "Oh Yeh Soweto" by Teaspoon & The Waves, "Intombi Ibhinca Isidwaba" by Phuzushukela, "Kikzelani" by Nelcy Sedibe, "Hula Hoop Jive" by Kataki, "Andromeda" by Chris McGregor's Brotherhood Of Breath, "Malume" by Abafakasi, "Baloyi" by Dudu Pukwana & Spear, "Lily's Express" by Gwigwi Mrwebi, "Wozan Mahipi" by Mahlathini & Mahotella Queens, and "Bayeza" by Soul Brothers.

✨✧ VariousRoot Hog Or Die Vol 3 – Sailing In the Boat When The Tide Runs Strong ... LP
Mississippi, 1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning tribute to the great Alan Lomax – the legendary musicologist, historian, and recording engineer who captured so many wonderful American sounds in the 20th Century! Lomax's work has been crucial to both the Library Of Congress and Smithsonian/Folkways Records – yet there's also a fair bit that has never seen the light of day before – amazing recordings that make up a surprisingly large part of this box set – which compiles work in many different styles recorded by Alan in the field – blues, folk, gospel, and global modes, plus compelling regional genres – all presented here in a special series! Titles on this third volume include "Down In Arkansas" by Almeda Riddle, "In A Shanty In Old Shanty Town" by Big Bill Broonzy, "Read Em John" by John Davis & The Georgia Sea Island Singers, "Laura Lee" by Emma Hammond, "Lord Have Mercy" by Fred McDowell, and "Lenga Serpentina" by Compagna Sacco.

Harold MabernLive At Smalls ... CD
Smalls Live, 2013. Used Gatefold ... $9.99
One of the best Harold Mabern albums we've heard in years – recorded with a trio of familiar partners, John Webber on bass and Joe Farnsworth on drums – but in a freewheeling live setting that has the group really stretching out over some long, extended tracks! Mabern's sense of imagination in this setting is wonderful – and really takes us back to the soulful majesty we loved in his music during the 70s – and although a few numbers reflect the ballad mode of some of Harold's studio albums, even these have an open-ended creativity that really goes beyond the usual! Titles include "Dreaming", "Road Song", "Boogie For Al McShann", "Afro Blue", "Alone Together", and a surprisingly great take on "Sesame Street". CD

Avery SunshineTwenty Sixty Four ... CD
Shanachie, 2017. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
Just the kind of record that reminds us why Avery Sunshine is one of the best female soul singers to come up in recent years – an artist who was instantly a pro, yet also very much her own person too – able to write the kind of fresh lyrics that really keep us interested, and put herself on the line without ever selling out! Avery's got some great guest work on the record – including song contributions from Eric Roberson, and appearances by Frank McComb and Keyon Harrold – all artists we respect tremendously, and are glad to have endorse Avery as strongly as we do! But right from the start, the lady's the main attraction – as you'll hear on the sublime lineup of tunes that include "Come Do Nothing", "Used Car", "Jump", "The Ice Cream Song", "Everything I've Got", "Twenty Sixty Four", "Heaven Is Right Here", "Kiss & Make It Better", and "I Just Don't Know".

VariousAnd This Is Me – Britain's Finest Thespians Sing ... CD
Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
A very cool collection of tracks from voices you might know more for their work on the screen – an array of British talents from the postwar years who were mostly known for their comedic performances in film and on TV! The word "thespians" is used here with a bit of wit – as most of these singers are ones from the lower-brow side of British entertainment – early situation comedies, Carry On films, and outlets like that – but given a really beautiful array of arrangements here, which help deliver some surprisingly great vocal performances! Some of these numbers are novelty tunes, others are a bit more straight – but overall, there's a nice sense of jazz and zing to the material – the kind of punch you'd expect if you saw their performances in a movie. Titles include "Postman's Knock" by Spike Milligan, "Alone Together" by Bernard Bresslaw, "Send For Me" by Terry Thomas, "It Had Better Be A Wonderful Life" by Barbara Windsor & Harry Fowler, "Three Nice Mice" by Max Bygraves, "I Like It" by Mike & Bernie Winters, "What About Me" by Bernard Cribbins, "Harry Brown" by Ian McShane, "Lonely For A Girl" by Oliver Reed, "We Go Together" by Eric Sykes & Hattie Jacques, and "Double Bunk" by Sid James & Liz Fraser.

Stag O Lee (Germany), 1930s/1940s. New Copy ... $16.99
Not the kind of record you might expect – neither a porno session, or a collection of work by artists named Richard – and instead, a sweet stack of rare tracks originally issued on 78rpm shellac – working together here in jiving jazzy brilliance! The work here is from the swing generation and beyond – with a strong focus on the sorts of sounds that would set the tone for the jump jive and R&B generation – including some especially nice vocal tracks! Titles on this first volume include "Jam Man" by Slim Gaillard, "The Minor Drag" by Fats Waller, "I Got Rhythm" by Horace Henderson, "Old Joe's Hittin The Jug" by Stuff Smith & His Onyx Club Orchestra, "Caledonia" by Woody Herman, "Voodoo Woman Blues" by Jay McShann, and "The Little Goose" by Rex Stewart's Big Eight.

Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 20s/1930s/1940s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Caribbean voodoo hits the American scene – served up here in a host of different mid-century styles – from jazz, to blues, to R&B – with some other nice surprises in between! The voodoo component of the tracks comes through either in the subject matter, or in the rhythmic progressions – which illustrate the way that African roots shifted as they made their way through the Caribbean, up to New Orleans – never dying in intensity, and instead finding a lot of new energy in the process! The 2CD set features a big booklet of notes in English, and contains 40 titles that include "Song Of The Jumbies" by Josephine Premice, "She Put The Whamee On Me" by Screamin Jay Hawkins, "Marie Laveau" by Oscar Celstin, "Voodoo Woman" by Jay McShann, "Witch Doctor" by Art Blakey, "Thirty Days" by Chuck Berry, "Evil Eyed Woman" by Terry Timmons, "Hoodoo Lady" by Memphis Minnie, "Goofer Dust Swing" by Lil Johnson, "Root Doctor Blues" by Doctor Clayton, and "It's Your Voodoo Working" by Charles Sheffield.
