BlossomsShockwave ... CD
MGM/Universal (Japan), 1972. Used ... $11.99
The only album we've ever seen from The Blossoms – a trio of female singers who push their music into much hipper territory for the 70s! The album's got a depth that's different than 60s girl group soul – a way of pushing the girl trio format with some touches from gospel, rock, and other righteous modes of the time. Arrangements are by Gene Page and the Paris Brothers – and also move past the usual – making the album a lost treasure that's full of surprises! Titles include "Touchdown", "Last Call For Love", "It's All Up To You", "Fire & Rain", "Moody", and "Cherish What Is Dear To You". CD

✨✧ Velvet UndergroundVelvet Underground & Nico ... CD
MGM/Polydor, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Delicate dissonance, bruised beauty, and hazy noise pop – all in one of the best rock albums ever made – the amazing first album from the Velvet Underground and Nico! The album's the stuff of legend – and for good reason, too – a surprising slab of vinyl that barely set the world on its ear when first issued back in the mid 60s – yet a record that's gone onto have an influence felt for decades to come – arguably one of the most important rock records of all time. There's a really sinister edge to the record, even when things are sweet – and the range of subject matter and handling here is brilliant – from the dream pop slice of heaven "Sunday Morning", the melodic bitterness of "Femme Fatale", the massive White Light-esque freakout "European Son", and the sublime "Heroin" – quite possibly the inspiration for generations of drug use to come. The whole thing's a classic – with wonderful vocals from both Nico and Lou Reed – and titles include "Venus In Furs", "Run Run Run", "Black Angel's Death Song", "I'll Be Your Mirror", and "All Tomorrow's Parties".

✨✧ Stan GetzMickey One ... CD
MGM/Verve, Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
An excellent one from Getz – recorded here as the lead soloist over backings composed by Eddie Sauter, designed to accompany the film Mickey One, an early directorial effort from Arthur Penn (and starring Warren Beatty as well!) The score has a very edgey quality to it, and Getz's playing is superb – a clear contrast to his breathier bossa work of the same vintage, and proof that he was growing tremendously as a player at the time. Titles include "Where I Live", "The Creature Machine", "Morning Ecstasy", "As Long As I Live", "Mickey's Theme", and "On Stage". CD

Solomon BurkeSolomon Burke Collection ... CD
Universal (UK), Early 70s. Used ... $3.99
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".

Incredible Bongo BandBongo Rock (Japanese version) ... CD
EMI (Japan), Early 70s. Used ... $16.99
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
(Out of print.)

Hank WilliamsHonky Tonkin ... CD
Mercury, Early 50s. Used ... $4.99
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".

Spectrum (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Some great Northern soul, pulled together from the wide array of labels currently handled by Universal/Spectrum – including Motown, MGM, Philips, and Chess. There's more than a few great cuts on here that we haven't seen reissued elsewhere – and although the price of the set is cheap, it's got a fortune's worth of rare soul sides! Titles include "6x6" by Earl Van Dyke, "The Boogaloo Party" by The Flamingos, "He Who Picks A Rose" by Jimmy Ruffin, "Worth Every Tear I Cry" by Dee Dee Warwick, "Learning To Trust My Man" by Sisters Love, "Landslide" by Tony Clarke, "The Way You've Been Acting" by Al Kent, "Do I Love You" by Frank Wilson, "Baby Hit & Run" by The Contours, and "Love Love Love" by Bobby Hebb. 17 tracks in all!
