The Juice Crew at it's best with Marley Marl twisting the knobs – the lCold Chillin classic from MC Shan!

DomingoDomingo Presents Behind The Doors Of The 13th Floor ... LP
Honcho Mogul, 1999. Near Mint- 2LP ... $1.99
Collection of 12 tracks produced by Domingo. A couple of nice posse cuts anchor the LP – "Line of Fire" featuring KRS, MC Shan, God Suns, Ras Kass, FT, Bamboo, Feell-X, Sinz of Realty (so we're guessing the KRS-Shan feud is finally past) and "Got You Too Hot" with Ras Kass, Hurricane G, Diesel Don. What separates this one from some of the other recent underground all-star compilations is that the whole 'very serious underground' feel doesn't way this one down. Other standout tracks include Feel X & Eminem "Hustlers and Hardcore", Bamboo "Not the Ones To Sleep", Sins of Reality "Sins of Reality" LP, Vinyl record album
(Promo in a plain sleeve.)

Harold MabernLive At Smalls ... CD
Smalls Live, 2013. New Copy Gatefold ... $11.99 15.99
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

Jay McShannBig Apple Bash ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Very Good+ ... $0.99
A much groovier record than you might expect – hardly the older-styled jazz session normally associated with Jay McShann, and more of a wide-ranging session that brings in some great contemporary touches! The album's something of a celebration for Jay – and it features wonderful guest work from players who include Gerry Mulligan on baritone and soprano sax, Herbie Mann on flute and tenor sax, John Scofield on guitar, Doc Cheatham on trumpet, and Eddie Gomez on bass. A few tunes have an older Kansas City sort of swing, but others have a vamping groove that's really great – and these numbers really stand out in the set with some great solo moments. Titles include "Crazy Legs & Friday Strut", "Blue Feeling", "Jumpin The Blues", "Dickie's Dream", and "I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water". LP, Vinyl record album

PoguesRum Sodomy & The Lash ... LP
Stiff, 1985. Very Good+ ... $19.99
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".

VariousGirls! Girls! Girls! – 25 All-Time Classics Of The Girl Group Sound ... CD
Varese, 1960s. Used ... $9.99
Some of the sweetest sounds of the 60s – a treasure trove of 25 girl group classics! This extremely well-chosen set is great in that it not only includes work by some of the biggest and best acts of the time, but also in that it blends together trio tunes with tracks by single artists, but which still follow very much in the style and approach of the classic group sound. Includes important work produced by Barry White, Juggy Murray, Van McCoy, Phil Spector, Kim Fowley, and other heroes of ours – with tracks that include "Til" by The Angels, "Bobby's Girl" by Marcie Blaine, "Laugh Or Cry" by Yvonne Carroll, "I Wanna Love Him So Bad" by The Jelly Beans, "It May Be Winter Outside" by Felice Taylor, "Hello Stranger" by Barbara Lewis, "Give Him A Great Big Kiss" by the Shangri Las, "Right On The Tip Of My Tongue" by Brenda & The Tabulations, "You'll Lose A Good Thing" by Barbara Lynn, "Jimmy Kiss & Run" by Diane Maxwell, "I Love How You Love Me" by The Paris Sisters, "People Say" by The Dixie Cups, "I Know (You Don't Love Me No More)" by Barbara George, "Yes I'm Ready" by Barbara Mason, and "A Thousand Stars" by Kathy Young & The Innocents.

VariousRough Guide To Psychedelic India (with download) (2015 Record Store Day Release ... LP
Rough Guide, Late 60s/2015. New Copy ... $19.99
A mad mix of sounds that definitely lives up to the title – as sitars, tabls, and other traditional Indian instruments come into play with fuzzy guitars and freaky rhythms! The work here is partly from the 60s, partly from later years inspired by the roots of the style – and the collection mixes together music from a nicely diverse array of sources, all in search of a new genre that really comes together in the course of the album. Titles include "Chamber Of Dreams" by Jazz Thali, "Thillana" by Jyotsna Srikanth, "Moksha" by Ray Spiegel Ensemble, "A Mystical Morning" by Debashish Bhattacharya with John McLaughlin, "Dancing Drums" by Ananda Shankar, "Dance Music" by Kalyanji Anandji, "Dum Maro Dum" by Asha Bhosle, and "Satyam Shivam Sundaram" by Sunday Driver.

CongosCongo Ashanti ... LP
VP, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... About July 14, 2015 (delayed)
While the Congos brightest moment was their Heart Of The Congos LP produced under the aegis of Lee Perry, they did go on to make a few worthwhile later recordings. This set is the only other album we know of before Cedric Myton and Roy Johnson split up, and features some nice rhythms laid down by Santa, Willie Lindo, China Smith, Ernest Ranglin and Tommy McCook. Though it lacks some of the sublime beauty of the Heart Of set, it's still a nice volume of golden era roots music, and includes "Days Chasing Days", "Jackpot", "Eduction Of Brainwashing", "Youth Man" and "Thief Is In The Vineyard".

✨✧ VariousFly Girls – B-Boys Beware – Revenge Of The Super Female Rappers ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s/1980s/1990s. Used 2CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic tribute to the Fly Girls of hip hop – a filler free collection of some of the funkiest female fronted singles of the 80s – included a few genesis cuts from the 70s and a couple of important 90s numbers – blueprint rap from JJ Fad, Sweet Tee, MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, Bahamadia, Sparky D, Dimples D, Roxanne Shante and more! The set is heavy with classic material from NYC, naturally – as that's where hip hop was born – Soul Jazz does a fine job of selecting important cuts from other scenes, stretching back to the 70s for influential tracks by Camille Yarborough and Sarah Webster Fabio, and into the 90s for modern classics by Bahamadia and Missy Elliot. No label is more reverent to the classics they round up for killer compilations than Soul Jazz – and this is a great one – with rare photos and notes on each track. CD 1 includes "You're Goin Down" by JJ Fad, "Pump Up The Funk" by Princess MC, "Vicious Rap" by Tanya Winley, "I Got Da Feelin" by Sweet Tee, "Ego Trippin" by Nicki Giovanni, "Cha Cha Cha" by MC Lyte, "Paper Thin" by Bahamadia and more. CD 2 includes "I Can't Stop" by Sparky D, "Ladies First" by Queen Latifah, "To The Beat Y'all" by Lady B, "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly) by Missy Elliot, "Sucker DJs" by Dimples D, "Give It A Rest" by She Rockers, "Glimpses" by Sarah Webster Fabio, "Bite This" by Roxanne Shante and more. 20 tracks on 2CDs.

✨✧ Dizzy ReeceBlues In Trinity (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the few American releases cut by the legendary British trumpeter Dizzy Reece – and a great one! The album was strange for Blue Note, in that it was a joint US/UK session – featuring American players Donald Byrd and Art Taylor, along with great Brit players Reece, Tubby Hayes, Terry Shannon, and Lloyd Thompson. Hayes is especially excellent here, and the record captures him at the peak of his young imaginative powers. With a two-trumpet frontline held down by Byrd and Reece, Hayes' tenor solos cut through hard and clean, with a deep soulful sound that makes him the most sparkling player on the session. Titles include "Close Up", "Blues In Trinity", "Color Blind", and "Round Midnight". CD features two bonus tracks – "Eboo" and "Just A Penny". CD
(SHMCD pressing.)
