✨✧ Magic SamI'll Pay You Back/Sam's Funck ... 7-inch
Minit, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Nice funky groover from Chicago! Magic Sam was mostly a blues artist, but this track has a nice funky sound to it, pretty much a take off on the Isley's "It's Your Thing", with an instrumental take onteh flip. The backing is by a largeish group with a horn section, but Sam's guitar is right out front in the mix. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Bright Star pressing. Label has a stain and some pen.)

Baby RayWhere Soul Lives ... LP
Imperial, 1967. Sealed ... $19.99
Obscure bluesy soul, recorded for Imperial, but sounding more like something that should have been on their Minit subsidiary. Oddly, there's no picture of Baby Ray on the cover, leaving us to find him even more mysterious than before – especially since we've never seen any other records by him. Possibly, he's another artist recording under this name, but we're not sure. Titles include "There's Something On Your Mind" (which was a minor hit in 1966), "Sadie (The Avon Lady)", "House On Soul Hill", and "The Wild Side Of Life". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing.)

Snapper, Late 50s/1960s/1970s. Used 2CDs ... $16.99
A beautifully overstuffed collection of early work from New Orleans soul legend Allen Toussaint – a set that not only includes many of his key recordings from the scene in the 60s, but also some of his important productions for other artists too! The package begins with Toussaint in the lead on a series of sides on CD one – working either as himself, or as Al Touson, or with The Stones, The Rubyiats, or Allen & Allen – all with these choppy, loping, heavy-grooving rhythms that were Toussaint's huge contribution to New Orleans soul right from the start! Titles include "Whirlaway", "Whipped Cream", "Moo Moo", "Wham Tousan", "Omar Khayyam", "I Don't Need One", "Baby Do Liddle", "Tomorrow", "Fat Cat", "Banana Split", and "Java". CD2 features a series of recordings done for the Minit, Instant, and Sansu labels – all with Toussaint involved either as producer, arranger, or musician – on material that forever shaped the sound of New Orleans – titles that include "A Certain Girl" by Ernie K Doe, "Over You" by Aaron Neville, "I Like It Like That (parts 1 & 2)" by Chris Kenner, "Sophisticated Cissy" by The Meters, "Holy Cow" by Lee Dorsey, "I'm Evil Tonight" by Betty Harris, "Oogsey Moo" by Jessie Hill, "It Will Stand" by The Showmen, "Ruler Of My Heart" by Irma Thomas, "Fortune Teller" by Benny Spellman, and "Hot Tamales (parts 1 & 2)" by The Primemates. 50 tracks in all!

✨✧ Bobby WomackUnderstanding ... LP
United Artists, 1972. Very Good ... $9.99
Killer 70s work from Bobby Womack – reinventing himself here in a great style that keeps all the warmth and soulfulness of his Minit recordings, and gives it a healthy dose of 70s soul production – creating a sweet new groove that pushed Womack into a huge new audience at the time! Bobby strikes a perfect balance here – keeping things hip, but also tightening things up too – yet never by getting too smooth or too commercial. The result is a great batch of tracks that includes classics like "I Can Understand It", "Woman's Gotta Have it", and "Harry Hippy" – as well as a nice version of "Sweet Caroline", and Jimmy Lewis' great "Got To Get You Back".

Bobby WomackWomack Winners – The Best Of Bobby Womack 1967-1975 ... LP
Charly (UK), Late 60s/Mid 70s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $11.99
A great look at the early years of Bobby Womack – featuring tracks from his first few albums for the Minit label, plus later hits from his mighty years at United Artists! Bobby had a sound like few other singers of his time – a raspy vocal approach that was instantly recognizable, and which stepped out proud and strong no matter what the setting. The double LP features 24 of Bobby's best numbers, with a track list that really gets at the genius of these early years! Titles include "Woman's Gotta Have It", "Lookin' For A Love", "I'm A Midnight Mover", "What Is This", "Harry Hippie", "Across 110th Street", "Daylight", "I Can Understand It", "Communication", "Nobody Wants You When You're Down & Out", "It's All Over Now", "That's The Way I Feel About Cha", "Check It Out", and "If You Don't Want My Love, Give It Back".

VariousRhythm & Bluesin By The Bayou – Livin, Lovin, & Lyin ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A massive amount of musical discoveries from the Louisiana scene – a set that features a huge amount of unissued tracks from back in the day – but all with the kind of vibe that matches some of the best early soul and R&B on labels like Specialty, Minit, and Imperial! The wealth of sounds from the swamp state are mindblowing – because even though Louisiana gave us plenty of hits in the 50s and 60s, there was so much more talent bubbling just underneath – thanks not just to some top-shelf artists who never fully got their due – but also a great network of studios and labels too. Only a few of these tracks ever came out as singles around the time they were recorded – more were issued later on reissues in the 80s, and a lot more appear here for the first time ever – in a package that might well be the best so far in this excellent series. Titles include "Don't Know Why" by Little Nolton, "Give It Up" by Lonesome Sundown", "I Keep Crying" by Cookie & The Cupcakes, "Crying Crying" by Sticks Herman, "Baby If You Want To Play"b y James Freeman, "But You Thrill Me" by King Charles, "I Got It Made" by Guitar Jr, "Boogie With Calypso" by Joe August, "Don't Say" by Tabby Thomas, "Baby's Got Bad Feet" by Eddie Williams, "I Know" by Elizabeth, "I Would Be A Sinner" by Charles Sheffield, "Baby Baby Come To Papa" by King Carl, and "Mama's Little Girl" by Van Preston.

✨✧ MinitsStill A Part Of Me/If You Don't Like My Apples ... 7-inch
Sounds Of Memphis/BGP (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Soaring soul from this sweet Memphis soul group – an overlooked female act who have a vibe that's similar to the Sweet Inspirations, but maybe hipper and funkier overall! "Still A Part Of Me" sounds like the best work by The Emotions on Volt Records – and the never-issued "If You Don't Like My Apples" does a great job of mixing a funky groove with a sweet sing-song lyric! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Orquesta Sakamoto Del JaponOrquesta Sakamoto Del Japon At The Chateau Madrid ... CD
Alegre, 1968. Used ... $8.99
Hmm . . . A strange one. The name of the group makes you think they're from Japan, but honestly, the sound of the record is straight Cuban all the way. In fact, since most of the songs are boleros in Spanish, done with a romantic feel, we're hard pressed to believe their origin – but that's not a problem, because the music is great for what it is. Titles include "Caminito", "Suki Yaki", "El Quita Pena", "Adoro", "Arrabel Amargo", and "Sombras Nada Mas". CD

✨✧ VariousPlay The Game – The XL & Sounds Of Memphis Story Vol 2 ... CD
Sounds Of Memphis/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Rare gems from the Memphis scene of the late 60s & early 70s – Kent UK's second volume in the XL & Sounds Of Memphis Story series – tunes that are diverse, trailblazing, and definitely deserving of some late love! The purpose of the series is to celebrate many the fantastic soul singles released by Sounds Of Memphis and XL in the huge shadow cast by the Stax family of labels – and it's success on that front and more. This second volume is just as great as the first in its display of the far-reaching sounds of Memphis soul at the time – from rollicking, rock & soul groovers with chugging guitar and gritty vocals, to mellowed out, melancholy soul with tight, yet rich vocal and instrumental arrangements – but it one-ups the first with its inclusion of never before released tunes, several of which should be classics! Great stuff from George Jackson,The Ovations, The Minits, Ann Hodge and many more! Titles include "All In My Mind" by George Jackson, "Play The Game" by Vision, "Got To Get Home" by Art Jerry Miller, "Gotta Move On (To My Destiny)" by The Ovations, "Today, Tomorrow And You" by Everyday People, "So Much Love To This" by The Sweeteens, "Teardrops" by William Bollinger, "I'll Love Only You" by Willie Cobbs and more. 22 tracks in all. CD
