✨✧ Alvin Cash & The RegistersTwine Time ... LP
Mar V Lus, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The classic album of short funky Chicago soul dance tracks, recorded for Mar V Lus as the follow-up to Alvin's huge "Twine Time" single. Most of the cuts on here have the same sort of groove, and most of them were written by either Andre Williams or Monk Higgins, with the kind of hard soul approach they were taking at the time with Chicago soul. Tracks include "Burn Just A Hair", "Do It One More Time", "Barracuda", "Hawk Eye", and "Bump". A potentially great record that's marred only by the rough recording quality of the Mar V Lus studios – every copy we've come across has sounded somewhat distorted and dirty, regardless of how clean the vinyl is . LP, Vinyl record album
(PLEASE NOTE: any sound quality issues are a result of poor master tapes, as noted above.)

✨✧ VariousOne-Der-Ful Collection – Halo Records (with download) ... LP
One Der Ful/Secret Stash, 1960s. New Copy 2 LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A really unique side of the legendary One-Derful family of Chicago soul music labels – the tiny Halo imprint, where the company issued all of their incredible gospel music! The Halo sound is like a deep soul take on the other One-Derful/Mar-V-Lus material – cut at the same time, in a similar scene, often with the same studio talent too – but tuned towards styles that are more righteous and more mellow than some of the more upbeat soul on the bigger labels – a heady brew of Chicago roots and heavenly inspiration, served up here in one mighty nice set! As with the others in the series, there's a number of cuts here that were never issued at the time – which makes this collection way more than just a "best of" the label – and instead more of an archival package, especially given the huge booklet of notes that comes along with the whole thing. A beautiful look at this under-exposed side of the Chicago 60s scene – with titles that include "Why Can't We Love Our Fellowman" by The Golden Tones, "Send Your Cleansing Power" by The Gospel Ambassadors, "Lord Deliver Me" by The Original Ensemble, "Why Do Men Treat The Lord As They Do" by The Redemption Harmonizers, "Man In The City (parts 1 & 2)" by The Lucy Rogers Singers, "Lord I Will Never Forget" by Rev Lofton & The Holy Travelers, "Keep Movin Along" by The Daytonians, and "I Have Made A Change" by The Flying Clouds Of Joy. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes download – and beautiful large booklet of notes!)

✨✧ FunkadelicFunkadelic – Reworked By Detroiters (3LP set) ... LP
Westbound (UK), Early 70s/2017. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... $26.99 34.99
The classic sound of Funkadelic, reworked by a key selection of contemporary talents from the Detroit scene – but never in a way that wrecks the originals at all! Unlike other remix projects, which might break up the music to a point that you can hardly recognize the original grooves – this set does a wonderful job of maintaining all the integrity of the famous funky recordings by the group, while also letting some artists from the group's hometown also include a few of their own contributions too – all in ways that really expand the original vision of the music, while keeping things in a funky soul vein all the way through! Given all the greateness of Detroit grooves in recent years – from that city's very fertile underground of producers and musicians – the sound here is still even more amazing than we expected, and the album's a very fitting one to be issued on the Westbound label. The set's double-length, and for good reason too – and titles include "Music 4 My Mother (Underground Resistance mix)", "Sexy Ways (Recloose disco flip)", "Get Your Ass Off & Jam (Marcellus Pittman rmx)", "You Can't Miss What You Can't Measure (Alton Miller mix)", "Super Stupid (Dirtbombs version)", "Music For My Mother (Andres Wo Ahh Ay voc mix)", "Cosmic Slop (Moodymann mix)", "Be My Beach (Mophono & Tom Thump)", "Let's Make It Last (Kenny Dixon Jr edit)", "Let's Take It To The Stage (Amp Fiddler @Ya mix)", "Undisco Kidd (Gay Marvine edit)", "Looking Back At You (Ectomorph stripped & dubbed)", and "Standing On The Verge (Anthony Shake Shakir & T Dancer rmx)".

Brass FeverBrass Fever ... LP
ABC, 1975. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Nice record by Brass Fever, and a one that was recorded before their more disco-y Time Is Running Out LP. The band includes a host of great horn players like George Bohannon, Jerome Richardson, Oscar Brashear, and John Handy – plus some good solos by Odell Brown on keyboards. Five long cuts, including covers of "Sunshine Superman" and "Lady Marmalade", plus the cuts "Djingi" and "Bach Bone". LP, Vinyl record album

Elis ReginaSaudade Do Brasil Vol 1 ... LP
Elektra (Brazil), 1980. Sealed ... $6.99
A great little album by Elis – recorded for Elektra, but very much in the spirit of her classic work for Philips in the 70s. Like so many of those records, this one features arrangements and keyboards by Cesar Camargo Mariano – and the list of tracks is a stellar blend of work by some of Brazil's finest writers. Includes a wonderful version of Milton Nascimento's "Maria Maria" – plus "Alo Alo Marciano", "O Primeiro Jornal", "Marambaia", "Menino", and "Redescobrir". LP, Vinyl record album

Duke Ellington & Billy StrayhornGreat Times – Duke Ellington & Billy Strayhorn Piano Duets (Dutch pressing) ... LP
Riverside/Fontana (Netherlands), 1950/1964. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A wonderful stripped-down set of piano work from Duke Ellington – presented here in an obscure set of duets recorded with Billy Strayhorn in 1950, finally issued as a full package by Riverside in the mid 60s – at a time when more folks seemed to be paying attention to Duke's stylings on the keys! The tracks are all relatively shortish, and accompaniment includes bass from either Lloyd Trotman, Joe Schulman, or Wendell Marshall, plus a bit of drums from Jo Jones. Strayhorn plays celeste on two numbers, and some numbers feature either artist solo. Titles include "Oscalypso", "Flamingo", "Cottontail", "Bang Up Blues", "Johnny Come Lately", "Tonk", "In A Blue Summer Garden", and "Blues For Banton". LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice 60s Dutch pressing!)

Stan Getz with Joao GilbertoBest Of Two Worlds ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Very Good- ... $4.99
A wonderful return to the sounds of Brazil for Stan Getz – a 70s album that reunites him with Joao Gilberto, but in a style that's somewhat different than the pair's older Verve recordings! The sound here is looser, freer – more in that breezy Brazilian mode that evolved out of the initial bossa years – and Stan's tenor sounds great in the setting, with those loose yet heartfelt lines we love so much from this period! Joao's great too – somehow even more "present" on the record than before, with that amazing ability to do so much with so little – as on some of his own great 70s recordings. Miucha contributes some English language vocals to the record alongside Joao's Portuguese ones, and Oscar Castro Neves handled the arrangements with a nicely stripped-down style that has plenty of focus on the percussion and rhythms. Titles include a sublime English language version of "Aqua De Marco (Waters Of March)", plus the tracks "Double Rainbow", "Falsa Bahiana", "Ligia", "Izaura", "Eu Vim Da Bahia", and "E Preciso Perdoar".

Yusef Lateef10 Years Hence ... LP
Atlantic, 1975. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
A spacious mid 70s set from Yusef Lateef – with some numbers showing his more soaringly spiritual bent – and others hewing towards a more bluesy or loosely funky vein. Tracked live in San Francisco, some numbers were later augmented with overdubbed strings and vocals – there's some nicely thumping elements of earthy percussion, loose moments, and quiet passages that sometimes build slowly, and at others change abruptly for maximum impact. The set features several longer selections, including the suite divided "Samba De Amor" in three sections, plus "Yusef's Mood" and "I Be Cold" – all approach or crossing the 20 minute mark – plus nice takes on "But Beautiful" and " A Flower". The group features Kenny Barron on piano and cowbell, Bob Cunningham on bass and bells, Albert Kuumba Heath on percussion and flute, and Bill Salter on bass – alongside Lateef whose working with tenor sax, flutes, oboe, thumb piano and percussion.

✨✧ Roy AyersEverybody Loves The Sunshine (40th anniversary yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Polydor, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
One of Roy Ayers' biggest albums ever – and also one of his deepest, too! The whole thing's an incredible album of mellow jazzy soul – and it shows Roy at the crossroads, perfecting his earlier funk style with a sweet mellow R&B edge, getting a bit slicker, but still staying on the righteous path, and opening up a whole new bag in soul music. There's a wonderful electric vibe running through the record – not just from Roy's vibes, but from the Fender Rhodes and Arp work by Phillip Woo – and the amazing energy of the rest of the group too. Features the landmark title cut – "Everybody Loves The Sunshine", one of those tunes that becomes more and more of a classic each year – plus spiritual numbers like "Third Eye" , "Keep on Walking", and "The Golden Rod". Very righteous, and with a cool dope jazzy groove! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Roy AyersNo Stranger To Love ... LP
Polydor, 1979. Very Good+ ... $6.99
An oft-overlooked funky soul gem from the incredible Roy Ayers – taking turns with both uptempo material and more smoothed out soul sounds – all done with Roy's trademark jazzy approach to the dancefloor! No Stranger To Love is a sly, and often funky set that deserves to be mentioned with his more famous dancefloor ready work of the late 70s – and if it gets an extra point two for the incredibly cool cover photo, the slow burning grooves more than deliver on the promise! The album does a really nice job of rolling out both the sultry jazzy soul and the funkier Ayers modes, with sweet strings in spots, Roy's incomparable vibes, bass and keyboard grooving, and vocals that set the mood for both the slow jams and the funky stuff! Includes the extended mellow number "Don't Let Our Love Slip Away", one of Roy's better downtempo moments, plus great stuff like "Don't Stop The Feeling", plus "What You Won't Do For Love", "No Stranger To Love/Want You", "Shack Up, Pack Up, It's Up (When I'm Gone)", "Don't Hide Your Love".

Martha Bass, Fontella Bass, David PeastonFrom The Root To The Source ... LP
Soul Note (Italy), 1980. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A compelling blend of jazz styles and gospel roots – one that has Fontella Bass joining forces with spiritual singers Martha Bass and David Peaston – with a bit of AACM backing thrown in for good measure! The vocals really stretch out strongly on the set – sometimes following conventional gospel lines, but with small combo backing – other times showing a more complicated sense of spirituality that befits the modern setting of the album. Musicians include Amina Claudine Myers on organ and piano (plus a bit of vocals too), Malachi Favors on bass, and Phillip Wilson on drums – and both Fontella Bass and Peaston play some piano as well. Titles include "In The Garden", "He Touched Me", "Something Down Inside Of Me", "I Feel A Change", and "God Is So Good To Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Beatles/George MartinYellow Submarine ... LP
Apple, 1968. Near Mint- ... $39.99
Sure it's a soundtrack, and sure it's got a number of songs that are just instrumentals from the film – but the record also features some excellent late Beatles tracks that can only be found here – including the killer tracks "Hey Bulldog" (almost a funky nugget), "Only A Northern Song", and "All Together Now". Also includes "Yellow Submarine" (natch) – plus "It's All Too Much" and "All You Need Is Love" – and side two features a number of groovy instrumentals from George Martin – including "Pepperland", "Sea Of Holes", "March Of The Meanies", and "Pepperland Laid Waste".

Maria BethaniaDrama 3o Ato/Luz Da Noite ... LP
Philips, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
Proof that Maria Bethania must have been one of the most exciting Brazilian artists to see live in the 70s! Although a concert set, the album's got a sophistication and sound that matches some of the best MPB studio work of the early 70s – with a slightly messed-up quality to the backings that mix together jazz with more abstract psychedelic influences! Accompaniment is by the core Terra Trio, plus Chiquito and Pedro Dos Santos – and as on other records from this time, Maria sings with a sense of power that's really tremendous! Titles include "Iansa", "Drama", "Formosa", "Baioque", "Movimento Dos Barcos", "Soneto", "Bodas De Prata", and "Atras Da Porta" – as well as some spoken passages. LP, Vinyl record album

One of Dollar Brand's more ambitious albums – featuring a larger group of players than usual, working through some compositions that have as much life and spirit as might be implied by the title! The group includes Brand on keyboards, conga, and soprano sax – plus work by Carlos Ward on sax, Gary Chandler on trumpet, Craig Harris on trombone, Cecil McBee on bass, and Dwayne Armstrong on tenor. Titles include "Whoza Mtwana", "The Homecoming Song", "Anthem For The New Nation", "African Marketplace", and "Moniebah". LP, Vinyl record album

Dee Dee BridgewaterLive In Paris ... LP
Impulse, 1986. Near Mint- ... $4.99
One of Dee Dee Bridgewater's greatest jazz albums, and a very important record in her career – as it marked a shift back to straight jazz vocals, after years of working in a more R&B inflected mode. The album's recorded in Paris, where Dee Dee's spent an awful lot of time over the years, and you can feel that familiarity in the way she presents the material – easily slipping back into a jazz vocal mode, working before an appreciative audience without any thoughts of crossover popularity, hitting that proud, strong, and free style that's been carrying her well for a number of years now. Includes a great version of "All Blues", plus the tracks "On A Clear Day", "Here's That Rainy Day", "There Is No Greater Love", and "Misty". LP, Vinyl record album

Philip Catherine with Marc MoulinStream ... LP
Warner/KTI (Japan), New Copy ... About November 5, 2017 (delayed)
One of the coolest records ever from guitarist Philip Catherine, and one of the funkiest too – thanks to a really sharp edge that you won't find on some of his other albums, and lots of Fender Rhodes from the legendary Marc Moulin too! Some of Catherine's other records of the 70s were a bit laidback or noodly – but this set's got a strong, soulful drive all the way through – a nice focus that may well come from the production of Sacha Distel, himself a onetime guitarist! But the group's just got things right on the money, right from the start – with some very strong funky drums from Freddy Rotheir, plus trombone from Jiggs Wigham and both bass and flute from Freddy Deronde. Titles include "Bassline", "Let's Put It Like This", "Stream", "Foire", "Face", "Jeux Interdits", and "Memphis Talk". LP, Vinyl record album

First up is Ray Charles At Newport – a great live album, with a definite jazzy feel – thanks to work from David Newman on tenor sax and Marcus Belgrave on trumpet!

Dennis CoffeyEvolution ... LP
Sussex, 1971. Very Good+ ... $29.99
A groundbreaking little record – and one that set a whole new standard for guitar funk in the 70s! By the time of this set, Dennis Coffey had been playing, arranging, and producing all over the Detroit soul scene for many years – so it wasn't like he really needed a hit to get paid or anything – but the record forever marked him as a guitar player to be reckoned with, and is a perfect showcase for Coffey's fuzzed-out funky style – instantly recognizable and still extremely popular today! The album contains the monster breakbeat cut "Scorpio" – kind of a seminal text of hip hop – plus plenty of other groovers like "Getting It On", "Garden Of The Moon", "Big City Funk", and "Sad Angel".

Miles DavisDig ... LP
Prestige, 1951. Good+ ... $59.99
A key early appearance on record by Sonny Rollins – recorded here with Miles Davis and Jackie McLean in the landmark Dig session! The album's the stuff that 50s bop dreams are made of – a session that has up-and-coming modernists working in the new freedom of the long playing record, in a way that allows them to break past the shorter, more urgent sound of the 78rpm single! Rollins is young, but a surprisingly strong voice on the set – and Jackie McLean's alto is incredibly sharp at this point, with strong hints of the genius to come later in the decade. The rest of the lineup includes Walter Bishop on piano, Tommy Potter on bass, and Art Blakey on drums – and tracks include Miles' classic version of "It's Only A Paper Moon", plus "Denial", "Out Of The Blue", "Dig", and "Bluing". LP, Vinyl record album
