Incredible Bongo BandBongo Rock (Japanese version) ... CD
EMI (Japan), Early 70s. Used ... $13.99
A landmark album that is perhaps the single most influential beat source in hip hop! The record was the brainchild of bongo player Michael Viner – who also happened to be running the Pride subsidiary of MGM at the time. Viner's got a meeeeeean touch on the bongo, hitting it hard and funky like the best 70s conga players – and his approach to the instrument is kind of like a funky update of popular instrumental styles laid down on guitar by The Ventures or on moog by Hot Butter. This album features the classics "Apache" and "Bongo Rock" – both with monster funky breakdowns that showed up on a heck of a lot of hip hop records over the years – plus loads of other goodies like "Last Bongo In Belgium" and "Bongolia". Excellent stuff – and darn hard to find! (We can still remember how stunned we were when we found our first copy in a Canadian record store back in 1987 – and even then we had to pay plenty!) Japanese reissue version includes 4 bonus tracks – "Sing Sing Sing", "Kiburi (part 1)", "Satisfaction", and "Last Bongo In Belgium (breakers mix)". CD

✨✧ Solomon BurkeSolomon Burke Collection ... CD
Universal (UK), Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A key look at a near-neglected side of the career of legendary soulman Solomon Burke! The collection brings together some wonderful work that Solomon recorded for MGM, Chess, and ABC in the early 70s (including one funky soundtrack) – records that step nicely off the style of Burke's later work on Atlantic, and which show him growing tremendously at the time! Most of the work is still in the southern soul mode of earlier years, but the production and arrangements show Solomon picking up some great elements of 70s modern and mellow influences – smoothing things out instrumentally, occasionally getting a bit funky, but still keeping plenty of space for his incredible vocals! It's about time that somebody put these tracks together – and although the package is a budget one, it features 19 tracks in all, with nearly all the best cuts from these albums! Titles include "Let Me Wrap My Arms Around You", "You & Your Baby Blues", "Get Up & Do Something For Yourself", "Fight Back", "We're Almost Home", "Love's Street & Fool's Road", "Electronic Magnetism", "Shambala", "Georgia Up North", "I Have A Dream", "Midnight & You", and "All For The Love Of Sunshine".

✨✧ Phil WoodsPhil Woods & His European Rhythm Machine ... CD
Inner City, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent album of funky electric jazz – and possibly the best one that Phil Woods cut with his European group! The quartet's a very hip group that's way hipper than its clunky name – with Gordon Beck on electric piano and organ, Daniel Humair on percussion and drums, and Henri Texier on bass, flute, and African percussion – all instrumentalists who dip heavily into the deep bag of their mighty talents for the date, helping to push Phil's music into some very cool new territory! The album cooks a lot harder than Woods' previous MGM date with the Rhythm Machine group in Europe – and has a really freewheeling vibe, and a sound that's almost outside at points. All tracks are long, with a modal electric approach that's very nice – and funky in the best parts – and titles include "Chromatic Banana", "Ultimate Choice", "The Last Page", and "The Day When The World".

✨✧ Hank WilliamsHonky Tonkin ... CD
Mercury, Early 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great early 50s MGM album from Hank Williams – overflowing with greatness on nearly every track, and featuring a good mix of hits and lesser-known gems! The cover alone is worth the price of admission – as it features a blue/black ink image of a honky-tonkin guitarist, offset by a smaller photo of Hank in the middle, which is reproduced here inside the booklet – tracks include "Jambalaya", "Honky Tonk Blues", "Honky Tonkin", "Howlin At The Moon", "My Bucket's Got A Hole In It", and "Mind Your Own Business".
