Mick HoughtonBecoming Elektra – The True Story Of Jac Holzman's Visionary Record Label ... Book
Jawbone, 2010. New Copy ... $6.99 29.95
A wonderfully detailed story of one of the coolest record labels ever – a book that really gets at the huge range of folk, blues, psych, and other wonderful sounds issued by Elektra Records! The tome is massive – big enough to feature a lot of full color pictures, but with a much stronger emphasis on text than usual for this sort of volume – with an especially deep look into the early days of Zac Holzman, and his initial love of pre-rock modes before the bigger shift to more popular Elektra modes of the late 60s. The book is over 300 pages, and is past the halfway mark before The Doors even come into the picture – which really gives you an idea of the kind of detail involved, The book also features a full Elektra discography in the back – at least until the point at which Holzman left the label – and the whole thing's honestly one of the best accounts of a label's formation we've ever read. 304 pages, oversized, with some color images.

Freddie HubbardHub-Tones (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note (Spain), 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
An album with a classic modernist cover image – and one that's also got the same sort of sound to match – brilliant early work from trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, who's really coming into his own as a leader with this date! Freddie's really finding a voice here – a sharper edge than on some of his later albums, at the beginning of a more modernist phase in the mid-60s – when his efforts would mark him as one of the more straight ahead players of the "new thing" scene. There's a careful balance in Hubbard's work here – spurred on by youthful energy of group mates Herbie Hancock on piano, James Spaulding on alto and flute, Reggie Workman on bass, and Clifford Jarvis on drums. Hubbard is really brimming over with new ideas – as are the other players – and titles include "Lament for Booker", "Prophet Jennings", "Hub Tones", "For Spee's Sake", and "You're My Everything". LP, Vinyl record album

Richard HughesHigh Wind In Jamaica ... Book
New York Review Of Books, 1929. New Copy ... $5.99 14.95
A book that was chosen by Modern Library as "one of the hundred best novels of the 20th century" – but one that would already be well worth picking up, even without that praise – given the subtle richness of the story! Richard Hughes tells the story of a group of wayward children caught up with pirates – coming to terms with their own limitations, and the shackles of their innocence – in a book that's almost kind of a Peter Pan narrative gone awry, given the prose that Hughes uses for his tale. There's a post-Victorian ghost still lingering somewhere in the background, although the book itself is clearly of a more modern age – and that tension between the two eras is also mapped out in the core of the story as well – between shifting poles of darkness and innocence – very fitting of the Henry Darger image on the cover. 279 pages, softcover. Book
(Spine has a small remiander mark.)

Charles JacksonPassionate Breezes/Gonna Getcha Love ... CD
Capitol/Expansion (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy ... $14.99
A pair of Capitol classics from Charles Jackson – back to back on a single CD! First up is Passionate Breezes – a smoking solo debut from Chicago's Charles Jackson – a hell of a great singer, songwriter, and producer – who'd already had great fame in the Independents, and was working hard at Capitol records with Marvin Yancey to help shape the early years of Natalie Cole! During that time, Jackson stepped into the studio, and really stunned us with this sublime set of his own – a wonderfully mature batch of soul tunes that really reflects the great changes for male singers in the 70s – a mode that was particularly helped along by Windy City contemporaries Jerry Butler and Walter Jackson. Yet Charles has a warmth here that's all his own – gently stepping along grooves arranged by Mark Davis and Gene Barge – the latter of whom helped co-produce the record with Yancey. Yancey also wrote most of the cuts with Jackson – and titles include "Love Of You", "I Really Want You", "The Train", "Get On Down", "Passionate Breezes", and a remake of "Ooh Child". Gonna Getcha Love is great modern soul from Charles Jackson – stepping out here in his role as a solo artist after early fame with The Independents! Although Jackson himself was becoming a key force in production and songwriting for other Capitol artists (most notably Natalie Cole), this second set for the label has Chuck working with Gavin Christopher in a warm west coast groove. Christopher produced and wrote a good number of the tracks on the set – and Jackson's style here is a bit more bouncy and buoyant than before – not really 80s groove, but sliding into a slightly more uptempo mode. Titles include "At The Party", "I'm Gonna Get Your Love", "I Finally Found My Love", "I'm Through With You", "I Love You Only", and "Just For Your Lovin". CD

✨✧ Willis JacksonSoul Grabber ... LP
Prestige, 1968. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of our favorite albums ever by Willis Jackson – and in fact one of our favorite soul jazz sides of the 60s! There's a mad groove here that's quite different than any of Jackson's earlier work – freer, looser, and more experimental – handled with a sound that's almost fuller in the arrangements, but which also gives the soloists more room to groove around. Willis himself plays the amazing gatorhorn on a number of tracks – a long funny-looking variation on the tenor, and a horn that has an almost George Braith or Roland Kirk-like sound. The rest of the group features some great guitar by Wally Richardson and smoking organ by Carl Wilson – plus electric bass at the bottom from Bob Bushnell, a key component to the harder-hitting quality of the grooves. The set features a fantastic version of Baden Powell's "Song of Ossahana", plus great covers of "Sunny", "Girl Talk", and "Ode to Billy Joe" – and the tracks "Soul Grabber", "Alfie", "I Dig Rock & Roll Music", and "Rhode Island Red".

✨✧ JOB BandLive At The Point After ... LP
Athens Of The North (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99
Too young to have caught a 70s funk band in the clubs? Here's the solution – a rare performance by a cool combo from Tulsa – captured live in a very hip club setting! The mode here is different than sounds experienced on a funky 45 – as the tracks are open, long, and have a nicely jamming vibe – really pushing towards the 10 minute mark on each track, as the group lets their instrumental interplay flow, peppering the performance with lyrics to egg the instruments on! The group features Fender Rhodes, riffing guitar, bass, and drums – plus two lead singers, and a sometime female backup – on the original cuts "Love Everything About You", "Valentine Love", "Just A Song", and "Keep On Smiling".

✨✧ Eddie KendricksPeople Hold On ... CD
Tamla/Elemental (France), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
A truly amazing album – unlike anything Eddie Kendricks ever did before, or since – and one of those records that really helped shape the sound of soul in the 70s! The music is as rich and powerful as the image on the cover – with some righteous undercurrents that really mark the time and place of the record, yet also help it transcend so many other standard soul modes of the period too! Arrangements are wonderfully complex – as you'll hear on the classic groovers "Girl You Need A Change Of Mind" and "Date With The Rain" – each very different numbers, but both a showcase for Kendricks' wonderful vocal approach. Other titles include the progressive "People Hold On" – plus "I'm On The Sideline", "Day By Day", "If You Let Me", "Let Me Run Into Your Lonely Heart", and "Someday We'll Have A Better World". CD

KenyaSkin Deep – The Collection ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $14.99
A sweet collection of work from Kenya – one of the freshest voices on the neo soul scene in recent years – presented here in a set of remixes that only further expand her groove! The album's a great companion to Kenya's studio records – and often has her wonderful vocals stepping up strongly over some more club-oriented grooves – work that's never in a cheap dance music mode, nor just a simple house-ified approach to her songs – and which instead provides some very thoughtful reworkings of her tunes. Titles include "Take Me Away (Tom Glide rmx)", "My Heart (Mark De Clive-Lowe rmx)", "Brown Soul (Edgewood Agents acoustic rmx)", "Makusmile (Tom Glide rework)", "Let Me (Sean McCabe classic soul rmx)", "Never Giving Up (Edgewood Agents rework)", and "Wednesday Girl (Opolopo rmx)".

King CurtisHave Tenor Sax Will Blow/Live At Small's Paradise ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1959/1966. Used ... $9.99
Two sides of soulful sax from one of the greatest R&B tenor players of all time! The album Have Tenor Sax was recorded in 1959, when King was a lusty young player just making his mark on the scene, grooving hard with a jazz-based group of players that includes Herman Foster, Al Casey, Belton Evans, and Noble Watts. The tracks are mostly originals – like "Snake Eyes", "The Groove", "Lil Brother", and "Chili" – with the same hard sax-heavy groove as Curtis' early work for other labels. The second set – Live At Small's Paradise – was recorded at the famous Harlem nightclub, with backing by a funky group that includes Paul Griffin, Cornell Dupree, Chuck Rainey, Ray Lucas, and Melvin Latiste. The set features tunes much more in King's Atlantic groove – that is, soulful renditions of pop tracks, plus a few nice originals. Titles include "Philly Dog", "Tough Talk", "Soul Theme", "Something On Your Mind", and "Pots & Pans". 21 cuts in all! CD

Bernie KrauseCitadels Of Mystery (Original Master Recording) ... LP
Mobile Fidelity/Takoma, 1975. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A beautiful little solo record from synthesizer legend Bernie Krause – best known as half of the legendary Beaver & Krause team, but stepping out here on his own after the untimely early death of Paul Beaver. The album was one that was initially conceived with Beaver, but recorded after his death – in a strange blend of synthesizer, keyboards, guitar, and lots of folk and world music influences. The musicians include a number of players who later went onto be instrumental stars of their own in the 80s – like Mark Isham and Andy Narrell – working here in an unusual setting that shows the richness of the Bay Area instrumental scene in the pre-New Age years. Titles include "Festival Of The Sun", "Flight To Urubamba", "Citadel Ay Bobo", "Heights Of Machu Picchu", and "Jambo Jambo". LP, Vinyl record album

Peggy LeeBest Of Miss Peggy Lee ... CD
Capitol, 1940s/1950s/1960s. Used ... $3.99
A great batch of the classic numbers by the one and only Peggy Lee! Peggy had a way of adding a genuine, earthy vibrancy to most of the numbers she ever cut – an emotive, but grounded, and even at turns bluesy quality that made even the sappiest big band orchestrations a real treat! The CD features 16 tracks including "Waiting For The Train To Come In", "I Don't Know Enough About You", "It's All Over Now", "Golden Earrings", "Happiness Is A Thing Called Joe", "Alright, Okay, You Win", "Big Spender", "Fever" and more.
