✨✧ Jim Galloway & Jay McShannJim & Jay's Christmas ... CD
Sackville, 1992. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great small combo Holiday album – one that really brings out some of the bluer sides of the Christmas songs it features! The group features the legendary Jay McShann on piano, and Jim Galloway on soprano, tenor, and baritone sax – working here with just bass and drums in a quartet, which leaves plenty of room for both of the leaders to really open up on the tunes! There's a bit of a Kansas City vibe to some of the best cuts – as if you're hearing the tracks in the backroom of a tavern, well past midnight on Christmas Eve – when that special sort of Holiday sadness has set in. Titles include "I'll Be Home For Christmas", "The Christmas Song", "Christmas In New Orleans", "Auld Lang Syne", "Christmas Night In Harlem", "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear", and "White Christmas".

✨✧ ShaktiShakti With John McLaughlin ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Near Mint- ... $6.99
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

VariousPhil's Spectre – A Wall Of Soundalikes ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
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.

VariousAnd This Is Me – Britain's Finest Thespians Sing ... CD
Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
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.

VariousRoot Hog Or Die Vol 3 – Sailing In the Boat When The Tide Runs Strong ... LP
Mississippi, 1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy ... $9.99
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.

Black & Blue (France), 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great overseas session from Gatemouth Brown – one that has a touch of jazz, thanks to Hammond from Milt Buckner, tenor from Arnett Cobb, and piano from Jay McShann! Tunes are mostly originals by Brown – different than the material he cut for the label for the Louis Jordan session at the same time. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ PoguesRum Sodomy & The Lash ... LP
Stiff, 1985. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Here's the rawer of the 2 greatest albums by The Pogues – preceding the more melodic If I Should Fall From Grace With God – balancing punk rock urgency and old soul poetry like no other band ever could. Producer Elvis Costello made it his mission to stay the hell out of the way and just capture the band in all their shambling, boozy glory, and that he does. Underneath his slurred vocals, Shane MacGowan was starting to become one of greatest songwriters ever, and bands punk fueled take in tradition Irish acoustic music some of the most exciting music we could ever hope to hear. Includes "The Sick Bed Of Cuchulainn", "The Old Main Drag", "Wild Cats In Kilkenny", "Dirty Old Town", "Jesse James", "Billy's Bones", "The Gentleman Soldier", "A Pair Of Brown Eyes" and "Navigator". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousLeiber & Stoller Story Vol 3 – Shake Em Up & Let Em Roll – 1962 to 1969 ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The 3rd volume in Ace's great exploration of the career of Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller – and most likely the best so far! By this point in their career, Leiber & Stoller were totally at the top of their game – buoyed on a huge wave of previous hits, and able to really get creative once again in the studio – exploring their new interest in South American rhythms, their love of tight orchestrations, and appreciation for deeper-voiced soul singers – all in a flurry of lesser-known singles that offer up a refreshing antidote to some of their over-played hits! About half the tracks here are soul singles, and the rest are 60s pop, rock, and vocal numbers – written by the pair, and mostly produced by them. Titles include "It's So Exciting" by The Exciters, "His Kiss" by Betty Harris, "My Heart Said Do The Bossa Nova" by Irene Reid, "You Can't Love Em All" by Solomon Burke, "Keep It Up" by The Soul Brothers, "Only In America" by Jay & The Americans, "Down Home Girl" by Alvin Robinson, "The Gunfighter" by Tommy Roe, "Bull Dog" by The Shangri-Las, "Jackson" by Johnny Cash & June Carter, "Flying" by Carmen McRae, "Where's The Girl" by Ben E King, "On Broadway" by Jimmy Scott, "Is That All There Is" by Peggy Lee, and "Brother Bill" by The Honeyman.

✨✧ VariousVoodoo In America – Blues, Jazz, Rhythm & Blues, & Calypso 1926 to 1961 ... CD
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.

✨✧ VariousR&B Christmas – Icon ... CD
Universal, 1990s/2000s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Contemporary Christmas classics from the past few decades of soul music – a tightly-done set that brings together some of the best of the more recent Holiday cuts! The package is a nice contrast to some of the more classic Christmas soul collections on the market – such as those from Motown or Stax – and shows a continuing legacy in the evolution of Holiday soul – as some of these artists are reworking original tracks from the 70s – whereas many 70s soul artists were initially only serving up soul versions of more standard Christmas numbers. Titles include "Someday At Christmas" by Mary J Blige, "This Christmas" by Ashanti, "Baby It's Cold Outside" by Vanessa Williams & Bobby Caldwell, "Merry Christmas Baby" by Faith Evans, "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" by Toni Braxton & Babyface, "It's The Most Wonderful Time Of Year" by Patti LaBelle, "Winter Wonderland" by The Isley Brothers, "The First Noel" by Brian McKnight, and "Silent Night" by Boyz II Men.
