✨✧ Johnny RichardsSomething Else Again (aka Something Else By Johnny Richards) ... LP
Bethlehem, 1956. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the best work ever from one of the most under-acknowledged jazz composers and arrangers of the 50s! Johnny Richards is probably best known for his recordings with Stan Kenton in the early part of the decade – but when he moved out on his own, he developed a tremendous sound that was even richer, even more full of color and tone than Kenton's own – and which was often done without any arch-modern tones, yet still fresh and free of cliche. The album's one of Richards' first as a leader – and features a wonderful lineup filled with top-shelf players – including Charlie Mariano on alto, Richie Kamuca on tenor, Stu Williamson and Pete Candoli on trumpets, and Frank Rosolino and Milt Bernhardt on trombones – all players who really bring a bold sort of energy to Johnny's vibrant arrangements. The sax work alone is tremendous – cutting with a beautiful edge across the larger charts – and titles include "Waltz Anyone", "Turn Aboot", "Band Aide", "Dimples", and "Burrito Borracho".

Rose RoyceRose Royce Strikes Again ... LP
Whitfield, 1978. Very Good Gatefold ... $1.99
The third album from the mighty Rose Royce – working here in perfect hit formation – with older styles of harmony soul wrapped around some of the best late 70s mainstream funk modes – all produced to perfection by the mighty Norman Whitfield! Whitfield's guidance of the group is maybe even stronger here than in the group's Motown years – as he balances funky and righteous elements with some sublime mellow soul moments – most especially here on the classic "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" – one of the group's standout cuts, and a masterpiece of spacey soul that still shocks us today with its greatness. Other tracks include "I'm In Love", "That's What's Wrong With Me", "Let Me Be The First To Know", and "First Come, First Serve". LP, Vinyl record album

Lita RozaMe On A Carousel (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Pye/El (UK), 1958. New Copy ... $3.99 13.99
A rare early album from Lita Roza – a British singer who recorded some pop in her day, but also had the depth of a much more serious vocalist overall – as you'll hear on the material in this set! The core of the CD features the album Me On A Carousel – a record that has Lita working with arrangements from Bill Shepherd, which mix fuller strings with some jazzier currents – to balance out the blue moods of the sadder tunes, and some of the more swinging sounds on the upbeat tracks. There's a few unusual songs on the set – and titles include "Me On A Carousel", "Love Can Change The Stars", "There's Nothing Rougher Than Love", "The End Of A Love Affair", "I'll Never Say Never Again", "The Other Woman", and "That's The Beginning Of The End". CD also features 6 more tracks from the Ember album Love Songs For Night People – including "In The Wee Small Hours", "They Say", "Paradise", and "Trust In Me" – and the package also features 6 more tracks that include "Hey There", "Jimmy Unknown", "Once In A While", "Allentown Jail", and "Love Is A Beautiful Stranger".

✨✧ Bridget St JohnFly High – A Collection Of Album Highlights, Singles, B-Sides, Demos, Live Recordings, Sessions, & Interviews ... CD
Dandelion/Cherry Red (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Truly amazing work from Bridget St John – an artist who's unlike anyone else we can think of – and who belongs in that rare stratosphere of completely distinct talents at the end of the 60s – a space that might include Nico, Nick Drake, or Bill Fay! Like all those three, St John is clearly a product of her time, and does have some musical relations to the world of folk, rock, and singer/songwriters – but her end result is so distinct, so unique, she's practically a genre unto herself – and a small one overall, given how few records she released! This set brings a focus on the best tracks from those albums – with one full disc of the best tracks from her studio albums – then adds in an even bigger disc of rare material, which includes early demos, BBC performances, other TV moments, rare tracks, and even a few duets with Michael Chapman. The second disc also has a few brief interview snippets – and Bridget's spoken voice is as lovely as her singing – and titles include "Lazarus", "Downderry Daze", "Ask Me No Questions", "Hello Again", "Thank You For", "The River", "Silver Coin", "Fly High", "It Seems Very Strange", "Suzanne", "There's A Place I Know", "Nice", and lots lots more!

Pharoah SandersWelcome To Love ... CD
Evidence, 1991. Used ... $6.99
Mellow work from Pharoah – a set of standards blown in a soulful late night style, with backing by William Henderson on piano, Stafford James on bass, and Ecclesion Wainwright on drums. The format is surprisingly captivating, largely because Pharoah's tone is always such a treat – and he sparkles with a majesty on the set that captures our ear a lot more than we expected! The whole thing's almost got the feel of some of Coltrane's earlier ballad work – and titles include "The Nearness Of You", "Nancy", "I Want To Talk About You", "Say It Over And Over Again", "Polkadots & Moonbeams", and "You Don't Know What Love Is".

✨✧ Lalo SchifrinMission Impossible ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
A familiar record – but a fantastic one! You probably all know the famous theme to "Mission Impossible" – Lalo Schfrin's beautiful jazzy number, with three piano notes revolving over and over again with incredible intensity – and the rest of the record is every bit as great, filled with a wonderful mix of groovy styles! The groove ranges from fast bossa to groovy 60s crime jazz to sparer tenser numbers that still manage to move nicely – and listening to the record over the years, our ears are always happily surprised at the level of genius that was allowed expression in the guise of a normal TV soundtrack. Cuts include "Jim On The Move", "The Plot", "The Sniper", "Danger", and "Barney Does It All". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sha La DasLove In The Wind ... CD
Dunham/Daptone, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The cover sticker bills this one as sounding like a lost collaboration between the Beach Boys and Delfonics – although for our money, we'd lean a bit more towards the latter – as the Sha La Das have a surprisingly strong approach to harmony soul! Instrumentation and production are much leaner than Brian Wilson ever would have used – more in the Daptone mode you'd expect from the label, and from the great backings from the Menahan Street Band – who are wonderfully restrained here, and really just let the vocals of the quartet shine through in a mighty nice way! None of these guys is as strong as Poogie Hart of The Delfonics (but then again – who could be?) – yet the group really absorbs the best spirit of those days when harmony soul sounded best in a spare indie label setting – which is exactly the way that Daptone presents them. Titles include "Open My Eyes", "Just For A Minute", "Okay My Love", "Those Years Are Over", "Do What", "Carnival", and "You Never Know Whether". CD

✨✧ Frank Sinatra/Phil Spector/Elvis Presley/Bing Crosby/Ella FitzgeraldChristmas Tale – Timeless Classic Albums (Jolly Christmas/Christmas Gift To You/Christmas Album/Merry Christmas/Swinging Christmas) (5CD set) ... CD
Vinylogy (UK), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 5CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great set of Christmas classics – five albums, each represented with LP-styled artwork in a box of 5 CDs! First up is Jolly Christmas by Frank Sinatra – one of the greatest Christmas albums of the 20th century – a rich tapestry of sadness and longing from Ol' Blue Eyes himself! Sure, most folks think that Christmas albums are supposed to be cheery and celebratory – but Frank, coming off of his best Wee Small Hours years at Capitol, rightly chose the sadder side of Christmas – and put together an album full of songs that really get at the bluer side of the holiday. Side one of the set includes some tremendous secular songs – the kind of mid-century tunes that often had a dark undercurrent of separation and unfulfilled desire – masquerading as holiday tunes, but in Frank's hands, coming off more like smokey late night tunes of lost love and wasted life. Side two's got some more spiritual-oriented tunes – but again, done by Frank, with arrangements by Gordon Jenkins, these tunes come off with a lot less celebratory spirit than you'd expect. Titles include "The Christmas Waltz", "Mistletoe & Holly", "The Christmas Song", "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas", "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear", and "I'll Be Home For Christmas". Next is A Christmas Gift To You – Phil Spector's classic Christmas album – a swirling delight of 60s pop and soul numbers, still one of the greatest full Christmas LPs ever recorded! The whole thing is wonderful – a mix of soul, rock, and pop – all produced with that classic "wall of sound" style that made Phil Spector such an early production genius in the 60s! The music is from those magical times when boundary-busting art and craft were mixed perfectly with pop styles that anyone could instantly fall in love with – and titles include "Frosty The Snowman" by The Ronettes, "Here Comes Santa Claus" by Bob B Soxx & The Blue Jeans, "Marshmallow World" by Darlene Love, "Sleigh Ride" by The Ronnettes, "Winter Wonderland" by Darlene Love, "Santa Claus Is Comin To Town" by The Crystals, and "Silent Night" by Phil and other artists on the set! Next is Elvis Christmas Album – an early Holiday gem from Elvis Presley – a set that had RCA Records wisely rushing the young singer into the studio to cut a host of Christmas tunes – which ensured that Elvis would be spinning on the turntable for many seasons to come! Titles include "Here Comes Santa Claus", "Silent Night", "Blue Christmas", "White Christmas", and "Santa Bring My Baby Back". Next is Merry Christmas from Bing Crosby – which may well be THE Christmas album of the 20th century – a 50s issue of 40s singles cut by Der Bingle, packaged in a cover with a classic cover image that's ensured that the record stayed in print for dozens of Decembers in years to come! Given that Bing virtually owned Christmas on TV during the 50s, 60s, and 70s, the album's place in popular music is well-earned – and honestly, Bing's "aw shucks, I'm just reg'lar folks" sort of approach to these tunes really helped create a kind of common man secular side to the Holidays that forever transformed America's celebration of the season. Or maybe we're going to far with this one . . . But whatever the case, the album's a standard, and one we were certainly raised on. Titles include "Silver Bells", "Jingle Bells", "Silent Night", "White Christmas", "Adeste Fideles", "Faith Of Our Fathers", "I'll Be Home For Christmas", and "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas". Last up is Ella Fitzgerald Wishes You A Swinging Christmas – a wonderful Holiday album that's stayed fresh for years! Ella's got a perfect style to interpret these numbers – working with Frank DeVol and Russ Garcia in a set of lightly jazzy versions of Christmas favorites like "Sleigh Ride", "Jingle Bells", "Winter Wonderland", "White Christmas", "Frosty The Snowman", and one of the best versions of "What Are You Doing New Years Eve" ever recorded!

✨✧ Alexander Skip SpenceAndOarAgain (3CD set – with book) ... CD
Modern Harmonic, Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A landmark album from Skip Spence – the onetime lead singer of Moby Grape, cast out of the group on his own by the time of this debut solo album – a record that's as powerful as it is fragile, and which has been the one lasting musical legacy of the man himself! The record almost sunk without a trace at the time, but has gone onto become the stuff of legend over the decade – supported by fellow singers, songwriters, and even a fair bit of the music press – who all shine key light on the record's unique, ahead of its time quality! Spence recorded the set for the same Columbia Records that was willing to take a chance on the early Leonard Cohen records – and there's a similarly singular vibe to Skip's approach – one that puts the whole thing at the level of "missed the first time around – but never again!" albums by later-decade legends like Big Star, Nick Drake, and maybe even Cohen. The style is hard to describe – similar reworking of roots-though-psych as Moby Grape, but a lot more intimate too – with so many lost dark corners, the set will be rewarding your ears for years to come! Titles include his original "Cripple Creek", plus "Diana", "Margaret Tiger Rug", "Weighted Down", "Little Hands", "Books Of Moses", "All Come To Meet Her", "Broken Heart", and "War In Peace". This 3CD set is incredible – and features 2 1/2 CDs' worth of previously unreleased material – along with a huge booklet of notes as well! Unreleased tracks include "This Time He Has Come", "It's The Best Thing For You", "Keep Everything Under Your Hat", "If I'm Good", "Furry Heroine", "Fountain", "Doodle", "I Think You & I", "You Know", "My Friend", "The Shape You're In", "I Want A Rock & Roll Band", "She Don't Care", and "Keep Everything Under Your Hat" – plus a huge amount of alternates and unusual versions of songs!

Toots ThielemansToots Thielemans Presents The Thierry Lang Trio – Cully 1989/90 ... CD
TCB (Switzerland), 1989/1990. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Great live work from this famous jazz harmonicist – a player who often gets standout moments in larger ensembles, or on well-known recording sessions – but who we especially like in a small combo mode like this! The CD features two different live sets – recorded a year apart, but each featuring the same core group – and each with very long tracks that really lets Toots stretch out and do his thing! There's nobody like Thielemans at all – which you'll know if you've ever heard him on record (which you probably have!) – and here, he wins us all over again, as he stretches out with well-crafted solos on tracks that really push towards the ten minute mark. The rest of the group features Thierry Lang on piano, Ivor Malherbe on bass, and Marcel Papaux on drums – and titles include "Estate", "Sno Peas", "Stella By Starlight", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "I Do It For Your Love", and "Weaver Of Dreams".

An overlooked gem from Lucky Thompson's mid 60s years – that wonderful time when he'd returned to the fold even stronger than ever – filled with hip new musical ideas, and a great command for the soprano sax! This set's got Lucky working on both soprano and tenor, both of which are handled with these angular, soulful tones that are totally great – right at home in a group that features Tommy Flanagan on piano, George Tucker on bass, and Walter Perkins on drums – all marvelously sensitive rhythm accompanists. Jack Melady adds harp on 2 tracks on the set – a very nice touch – and titles include "Safari", "Cry Me A River", "People", "You Don't Know What Love Is", and "As Time Goes By".

Clifford ThorntonKetchaoua ... LP
BYG/Actuel, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $11.99
An early gem from the great Clifford Thornton – maybe his best-known album over the years, thanks to its placement on the post-68 series of French free jazz releases on the BYG/Actuel label – but a set that's got a much more New York vibe overall, and stands as a key precursor to so many loft jazz recordings of the 70s! The style is very open and organic – not nearly as bombastic as some of the other Actuel sets of the period – with an earthy energy that really allows the players to come together naturally, collaboratively, and not combatively. The lineup of players shifts from track to track – again echoing some loftish modes – and the lineup includes Thornton on cornet and percussion, with Grachan Moncur on trombone, Archie Shepp on soprano sax, Arthur Jones on alto, Beb Guerin and Earl Freeman on bass, Sunny Murray on drums, and Dave Burrell on piano. Titles include "Pan African Festival", "Brotherhood", and "Ketchaoua" – plus "Speak With Your Echo", a cool track that has Clifford's cornet playing in a spare setting with only 2 basses!

The album's got a nice mixture of Philly groove and tighter crossover arrangements from the likes of Norman Harris, Bobby Martin, Lenny Pakula, and Richard Rome – all top-shelf Philly soul talents who really help move the album past the territory of the girl group soul of the trio's earlier work! Titles include the hit "When Will I See You Again", plus the long-running classic "Dirty Ol' Man", and the cuts "Can't You See What You're Doing To Me", "I Didn't Know", "I Like Being A Woman", and "Year Of Decision".

Uncle FunkensteinTogether Again ... CD
Jazzman (UK), 1983. New Copy ... $8.99
An amazing bit of funky jazz – recorded in the Indy scene of the early 80s, but with enough raw power to blow away most soul jazz sides of the 70s! The album's filled with massively funky bass – played by key group member Larry Ridley, who brings amazing energy to the core "Uncle Funkenstein" jam that the album's best known for! The tune's an extended workout with a choppy, funky groove – started by bass, peppered with percussion, and really brought home with instrumentation that features group leader Russell Webster on tenor, James Spaulding on flute, Clifford Ratcliff on trumpet, Melvin Rhyne on piano, and Alonzo Pookie Johnson on additional tenor. Given the presence of both bigger names like Ridley, Spaulding, and Rhyne on the set – and that of local players under the direction of Webster – the record's a great bridge between the larger jazz community at the time and some of the key local scenes in which players would retreat and cook up even greater music. A few tracks on the album are a bit more conventional, or a bit mellow – but overall, the record's filled with plenty of soul, and more than enough funky power to live up to the group's name! Titles include the jamming "Uncle Funkenstein", "Unkle Funkenstein (part 2)", and "Uncle Funkenstein (cont)" – at 30 minutes, way more of the "Uncle Funkenstein" jam than appeared on the Luv N Haight reissue years back. Other titles include "Together Again", "Blue Robe", "Where Does life Come From", "Rock My Cradle", "Third Bosinova", and "500 Finished". CD

Torchy vocals from June Valli – a singer we don't know much, but who really sparkles on this late 50s set for RCA! June's a singer with definite range – sometimes subdued, sometimes much more expressive – and the backings from Joe Reisman do a great job of matching her mood on the tunes – keeping things coy at points, but really letting loose at others – with a depth that almost reminds us of Sinatra's classic Wee Small Hours album. The tunes are mostly familiar, but Valli does a good job of inhabiting them with her own energy – and titles include "Body & Soul", "I Get Along Without You Very Well", "Stormy Weather", "You've Got Me Crying Again", "Can't Help Loving That Man", and "But Not For Me".

Schifrin was just getting his start on the US scene at the time – and for the set, he's working in a mode that has some of the fuller, richer orchestrations used on other Vaughan albums of the period – but which also breaks out into some leaner and jazzier moments that remind us of his later work. Sarah herself is great – singing with that mature and almost world-weary tone that made so many of her Roulette sides so memorable. Titles include "More Than You Know", "Thanks For The Ride", "Just Married Today", "I Wish I Were In Love Again", "This Can't Be Love", and "Slowly". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Harold VickStraight Up ... LP
RCA, 1967. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A key record in the career of saxophone genius Harold Vick – one of our favorite players ever! Vick is a tremendous talent – the kind of guy we want to build memorials to, reissue albums by, and rewrite jazz history books so that every one knows how wonderful his work truly is. This album marks a real shift for Vick – away from the tenor/organ work of his early years, into a more complicated, more deeply soulful approach to the saxophone – in a style that hints and his expansive soul jazz recordings of the 70s. Vick's playing on tenor, soprano, and flute – really opening up his sound on all instruments, and working in an unusual group that features vibes by Warren Chiasson, guitar by Everett Barksdale, and rhythm by Hugh Walker and Walter Booker. The sound is incredibly rich, even on the more familiar numbers – and has an ambitious sound that seems to take on 20 years of saxophone work, yet somehow manage to come across with a style that's simple, uncluttered, and down to earth. Tracks include "Straight Up", "Lonely Girl", "Winter Blossom", and "We'll Be Together Again". LP, Vinyl record album

The record's got Nancy working through some material with bluer currents, sometimes in a mode that's late night in the instrumentation – but never in the older style of torch tunes. Instead, arrangers Billy May, Olver Nelson, and Sid Feller really keep things groovy – matching the newer spirit that Wilson brings to her music – which results in superb readings of songs throughout. Titles include some nice lesser-known material – like "River Shallow", "Free Again", "Only The Young", "The Right To Love", and "Over The Weekend" – plus versions of "Lush Life", "Midnight Sun", and "Sunny". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Richard Popcorn WylieExtrasensory Perception ... CD
ABC/Dusty Groove, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Majestic music from the mighty Popcorn Wylie – the Detroit soul legend best known for his work in the 60s, but an artist who really shines on this rare 70s set for ABC! The album was done during the same stretch as Lamont Dozier's ABC work – and like those records, this set features killer arrangements and production from McKinley Jackson – who updates an older Detroit groove strongly, while still keeping all the real soul elements of Popcorn's music intact! Dozier helped a bit on some of the tunes, and the whole thing's got a soaring, joyous feel that's really wonderful – uptempo without being uptight, positive without sounding hokey, and perfectly in a unique space that's all its own. Gene Page and Paul Riser throw in a bit of soul on some tracks too – sweetening things up with just the right touches of strings and horns – and Popcorn's vocals are great, especially on some of the more hauntingly-constructed tunes. Titles include the massive "ESP", which begins with an echoey breakbeat, then rolls into a great hook – plus "Trust In Me", "How Did I Lose You", "Georgia's After Hours", "Lost Time", "I Can Take The World On With You", "Both Ends Against The Middle", and "Singing About You And Me".

✨✧ Yosuke YamashitaTenshi No Koukotu ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $22.99
A rare jazz soundtrack from Japanese pianist Yosuke Yamashita – best known for his avant recordings of the time, but sounding equally enigmatic here in the film score world! The album's hardly the standard jazz score – as the tunes shift mood strongly from track to track – starting with one long instrumental jam, then moving into a sad-tinged vocal number, then a spoken cut, and then more vocals – before ending up again with instrumental jazz. Yamashita's piano is sometimes a bit warmer than on other records, but often quickly surprises with some starker notes – and the set also features a bit of tenor and soprano sax work as well. All titles and players in Japanese – and the CD comes with a booklet that includes some haunting shots from the film! CD

ZombiesZombies (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Varese, 1965. Used ... $7.99
The first US album by The Zombies – a brilliant little record that shows the group as way more than just a Brit Invasion combo! The songs are short, rocking, and nearly all very catchy – but they've got an airy quality that elevates them past simple pop, into the god-like territory that would emerge even more strongly on later work by the group. Includes the hits "Tell Her No" and "She's Not There" – plus "Summertime", "What More Can I Do", "I Don't Want To Know", and "Woman". CD features bonus tracks, too – "She's Coming Home", "I Love You", "Leave Me Be", "I Want You Back Again", "I Must Move", and "You Make Me Feel So Good". CD

✨✧ ZulemaJust Can't Say Goodbye – The Best Of The RCA Years ... CD
RCA/Soulmusic.com (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer overview of the RCA years of Zulema Cusseaux – a heck of a great singer, and one who worked with some excellent styles during her 70s years in soul! Zulema's got a slightly righteous approach to her music – a style schooled in the deep soul of her Floria roots, but focused on some tighter, groovier charts here – thanks to top-shelf work from studio talents like Bert DeCoteaux, Leon Pendarvis, and Van McCoy – all of whom bring a really special sort of magic to these sides! Zulema's got the kind of voice that might have faltered if given the wrong direction – but here, it really takes off – especially given the excellent choices in the collection, which nicely avoids some of the few mis-steps on Zulema's fuller albums. 19 tracks in all – including "Standing In The Back Row Of Your Heart", "I Love You Baby", "Pity For The Children", "You Had To Know", "Half Of Your Heart", "It Will Never Be The Same Again", "Why Did It Have To End This Way", and "Love To Last Forever".

Atlantic (Japan), 1965/1966. New Copy 2CD ... $49.99
Think you know the sound of Atlantic Records in the 60s? Think again – because this stunning series opens the vault to a huge amount of rare treasures from the legendary label! The package is amazing – and offers up rare tracks that were mostly only issued by Atlantic on singles – including some on the other imprints associated with the company – some by names we never even knew recorded for the label, others by bigger names, but represented here by obscure material that goes way past their hits – and which is ultra cool because of that. There's also a fair bit more deep soul than you might expect from the usual Atlantic mix – tremendous vocals, and often in less hit-heavy modes – which makes the whole thing a great revelation – and just one more reason to bow down and give even more expect to one of the key companies who helped soul music find a home in the 60s. Plus – as if that's not enough – the whole thing comes in a very cool 7" gatefold package – which emphasizes the from-singles nature of the collection. Volume 3 is overflowing with amazing sounds from the heart of the 60s – rare 45rpm tracks by Atlantic stars, Stax artists, and a few lesser-knowns too. Titles include "Hello Stranger" by The Capitols, "Help Me (parts 1 & 2)" by Ray Sharpe, "Long Distance Love" by Ted Taylor, "Lonely Soldier" by Mike Williams, "How Can You Babysit A Man" by Ned Towns, "Keep Looking" by Solomon Bourke, "I'm Sorry" by Fred Lowrey, "Please Uncle Sam" by The Charmels, "Share What You Got" by William Bell, "Reputation" by The Four Shells, "Me & My Baby" by Mary Wells, "Got No One" by The Delcardos, "Weak Spot" by Ruby Johnson, "Good Love Bad Love" by Eddie Floyd, "Bingo" by Ned Towns, "I Had A Dream" by Johnny Taylor, "I Can't Take It" by Ray Sharpe, "You Can't Love Them All" by The Drifters, "Believe It Or Not" by Rex Garvin & The Mighty Cravers, "Patch My Heart" by The Mad Lads, "She's The One I Love" by The Delcardos, "Find Me Somebody" by Bobby Womack, "Hello Stranger" by The Capitols, "So Much Love" by Ben E King, "Help The Bear" by Ted Taylor, and "I Feel A Sin Coming On" by Solomon Burke.

Sony (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... $42.99
A huge batch of classic AOR – 4CDs, and 75 tracks – more than enough to sail a whole fleet of yachts! The approach here is pretty cool – each CD features tunes chosen for a specific season – spring, summer, autumn, and winter – a nice variation amidst the tightly-crafted, well-polished work chosen from amidst the deep AOR vaults of Sony Records! There's some crossover soul tracks here, amidst more mainstream rock numbers that helped define the genre – and the big set features a compelling blend of classics with some lesser-known album tracks. Titles include "Side By Side" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Heart To Heart" by Kenny Loggins, "She Waits For Me" by Airplay, "Song For A Sucker Like You" by Ben Sidran, "Do Right" by Paul Davis, "You Give Good Love" by Whitney Houston, "If You Should Fall" by Ned Doheny, "If I Saw You Again" by Pages, "Fanny" by Gino Cucio, "Dance With Me" by Livingston Taylor, "I Wanna Be Where You Are" by Melissa Manchester, "Brazilian Rhyme (Danny Krivit re-edit)" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Make It Up To You" by Cecilio & Kapono, "Sentimental Fools" by Randy Edelman, "Wait For Me" by Hall & Oates, "Living Inside Myself" by Gino Vannelli, "Change Of Heart" by Eric Carmen, "Georgy Porgy" by Toto, "Seeing You" by Jimmy Messina, "Oh Yeah" by Bill Withers, "I Go Crazy" by Paul Davis, "Paradise" by Herbie Hancock, "Angel Heart" by Jimmy Webb, "Valentine" by Ned Doheny, "I Wonder What You're Like" by Robert Kraft, "Ooh Child" by Valerie Carter, and "The Last In Love" by JD Souther.

Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Maybe one of the coolest country Christmas collections we've ever heard – but then again, we'd expect no less from the folks at Bear Family! There's a lot of great original tunes here – which are mixed with country-fied takes on more popular Holiday songs from the midcentury years – often served up here by singers that were the bigger names of their generation, caught in a very special setting for the month of December! As usual with Bear Family, the presentation is great – vivid images inside and out – and notes on every single track – supporting a selection of 27 titles that include "I'll Be Walking The Floor This Christmas" by Ernest Tubb, "Senor Santa Claus" by Jim Reeves, "Christmas Dinner" by Tennessee Ernie Ford, "Snowdeer" by Carl Smith, "They Shined Up Rudolph's Nose" by Johnny Horton, "Santa Claus Jr" by Eddi Cletro, "It's Christmas Every Day In Alaska" by Hank Thompson, "It Was Jesus (undubbed)" by Johnny Cash, "Reindeer Boogie" by Hank Snow, "The Christmas Boogie" by Davis Sisters, "I'm Your Private Santa Claus" by Eddie Arnold, "I'm Gonna Tell Santa Claus On You" by Faron Young, "Captain Santa Claus" by Bobby Helms, "Santa's Big Parade" by The Louvin Brothers, and "Christmas In My Hometown" by Sonny James.

Color Tapes/Lion, Early 80s. New Copy ... $8.99
The cold waves of color keep on coming – reminding us again and again that there's still so much more to discover from the early 80s underground! As with previous volumes, the focus here is on electronic work that's way different than mainstream pop of the period – often forged out of the same instrumentation as the hits, but in a much more stripped-down way – with lots of dark and moody corners that really keep things interesting! Much of this music got no circulation at the time, which is why this series is so crucial – and even if you know some of the more obscure Sheffield or Manchester material from the post-punk generation, you'll probably still find plenty to discover here. Titles include "Transit 6" by Silicon Valley, "Pavilion" by Lives Of Angels, "Production Line" by The Lord, "Silent Sky" by Echo Phase, "August Haze" by Berserk In A Hayfield, and "Isotope" by Void.

Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A long-overdue entry in this amazing series – a set of music that's gone on to be a genre unto itself, and which stands as a tribute to the song-picking genius of the great Dave Godin! The music here is a really special breed of soul – sounds that start out in the heart-worn style of southern work of the 60s, but which also expand to encompass other modes of very expressive singers – music that definitely lives up to the "deep" in the deep soul title! Godin's been gone from the planet for a number of years, but the set list is based on suggestions he had when compiling the earlier versions of the famous series – and Dave lives again in the notes, which include an interview with the soul music expert by Jon Savage. But even without the words, the music is more than enough – on titles that include "Without Love" by Ronnie Taylor, "Where Is The Party" by Helena Ferguson, "Dead" by Carolyn Sullivan, "Who Knows" by Soul City, "I Will" by Lattimore Brown, "Right Here Is Where You Belong" by Jerry Washington, "Can't Last Much Longer" by Betty Harris, "Standing At The Crossroads" by Eddie & Ernie, "What Can I Do Without You" by Linda Jones, "It's Too Late For Tears" by Rene Bailey, and "All I Want Is You" by Zilla Mayes.

A seminal album of sounds from the groundbreaking Ethiopian scene at the start of the 70s – a full length collection of previous 45s from the excellent Ahma Records label – home to revolutionary sounds that continue to influence new generations of listeners! The music here represents the Golden Age at its peak – sounds that partly reform older traditions with new modernist ideals, partly shift sideways from western influences, to the sorts of enigmatic, other-worldly styles you'd know from the music of Mulatu and some of his contemporaries! And lest you think that "hit parade" means commercial crass, think again – because these tunes are every bit as mindblowing as the music you'd find on the seminal Ethiopiques series. Titles include "Addis Abeda Bete" by Alemayehu Eshete, "Tezeta" by Seifu Yohannes, "Yeberehe Lomie" by Abayneh Degene, "Gara Ser Naw Betesh" by Teshome Meteku, "Asha Dedawo" by Menelik Wossenachew, "Ayamaru Eshete" by Essatu Tessema, and "Hedech Alu" by Muluken Melesse.

Westbound/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massive celebration of the legendary Westbound Records – a Detroit record label started at the end of the 60s, and one that took the Motor City into much heavier territory than Motown! Westbound was the initial home of both Funkadelic and Ohio Players – and the imprint had a great ear for the kind of deeper, funkier side of the soul music spectrum – both with big groups like the two we just mentioned, and with a host of lesser-known singers and combos too! This package brings together two dozen key singles on Westbound – but not the giant hits, and instead the kind of songs that illustrate that key special touch that really set the company apart from the rest – even as the 70s moved on, and elements of club music started coming into their groove. Titles include "I Love You" by The Motivations, "A Letter From Vietnam" by Emanuel Lansky, "Everything Is Going To Be Alright" by Bill Moss & The Celestials, "Ain't No Telling" by Houston Outlaws, "Yes I'm In Love" by Unique Blend, "Why Not Start All Over Again" by The Counts, "I've Changed" by The Magictones, "I'll Bet You" by Funkadelic, "Music Man (part 1)" by Pleasure Web, "Get Up Off My Mind" by Denise LaSalle, "Baby Let Me Take You In My Arms" by Detroit Emeralds, "Devil's Gun" by CJ & Co, "Get Ya Some" by Melvin Sparks, "Alvin Stone" by Fantastic Four, "If You Love Him" by Junie, "Calling Planet Earth" by Dennis Coffey, "Crazy Legs" by Donald Austin, and "Funky Worm" by The Ohio Players.

A totally wonderful collection of work from Malaco Records – an imprint that's best known for its southern soul, blues, and gospel recordings – but one that's also got a fair bit of modern soul in its catalog as well! In fact, Malaco was really instrumental in helping move forward the torch of southern soul at a time when other bigger labels like Stax, TK, and Atlantic were really losing steam – and the cuts here are the cream of the crop from a time when Malaco was turning out some amazing sounds that rival the best modern soul from scenes in Chicago, New York, or Philly! If you only know the deep soul side of Malaco, you'll really be stunned here – and the set does a great job of pulling out some lesser-known recordings from the label, in the best Free Soul tradition. Over 80 minutes of music – with tracks that include "I Can't Do Enough For You Baby" by Tommy Tate, "Groovin" by Power, "I Need Your Love" by Patterson Twins, "Girl Overboard" by Dorothy Moore, "Get Up & Dance" by Freedom, "You Used To Be Mine" by Mosley & Johnson, "Make It With You" by Ruby Wilson, "I'm For Real" by King Floyd, "Give Me Your Love" by GC Cameron, "When Can We Do This Again" by ZZ Hill, "Let Your Love Rain Down On Me" by Jewel Bass, and "Pillow Talk" by Fern Kinney.

Think you know Hi Records? Guess again – because this sublime set of rarities has way more Memphis soul than just the work of Al Green, Ann Peebles, and Willie Mitchell! The special package features lots of lesser-known cuts from the vaults of Hi – including a fair bit of upbeat singles that showcase more of a dancefloor soul side of the legendary imprint – music that's still got a fair bit of deep soul in the vocals, but which also shows a bit more Memphis snap in the rhythms – a great mixing of modes that lies in a space that's somewhere between Northern and Southern soul standards of the time. There's a huge amount of tracks here we'd somehow missed over the years – and titles include "Stepchild" by Venice, "So Good To Me" by George Jackson, "Help Yourself" by 5 Royals, "Farmer John" by Four Kings, "Hitchhike To Heartbreak Road" by Bobo Mr Soul, "Save The Last Dance For Me" by Henry Shed, "Frankenstein Walk" by Gene Miller, "I Want To Be There" by The Four Kings, "We've Got Everything" by T 99, "Hard Luck" by Bobby McClure, "Still Around" by James Fry, and "The Way You Do The Things You Do" by Ebony Web.

VariousHolding Things Together – The Merle Haggard Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
Merle Haggard isn't just one of the greatest country singers of all time – he's also a hell of a songwriter, too – one who emerged fully-formed into the glory of his Capitol Records years – releasing album after album that were full of amazing original compositions! Merle's own recordings of his songs have gone on to shape the sound of country music for decades – but right from the start, his music was grabbed up and interpreted by singers in a variety of different modes – sometimes as a way to make older artists sound hip, and more importantly as a way for younger acts to give ol' Hag the nod, and fortify their rootsy inclinations with a strong dose of straight country! This set does a great job of mixing up both sides of that coin, and throws in a few surprises along the way – finally giving Merle his due when it comes to the pen, on tracks that include "The Bottle Let Me Down" by Emmylou Harris, "I Must Be Somebody Else You've Known" by International Submarine Band, "Sing Me Back Home" by The Every Brothers, "Life In Prison" by The Byrds, "Kern River" by Dave Alvin, "Legend Of Bonnie & Clyde" by Tammy Wynette, "White Line Fever" by Flying Burrito Brothers, "Okie From Muskogee" by Roy Rogers, "Swinging Doors" by Jerry Lee Lewis, "Today I Started Loving You Again" by Wynn Stewart, "Rainbow Stew" by Country Joe McDonald, "Honky Tonk Night Time Man" by Lynyrd Skynyrd, "Just Because You Can't Be Mine" by Bettye Swann, and "Silver Wings" by The Knitters.

Malaco/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $26.99
You might know Malaco Records as a hotbed of deep soul during the 70s – but as the decade progressed, the southern label also really opened up to some of the warmer, more sophisticated styles that were brewing up north – all to create a magnificent sort of hybrid that really helped move its music forward! The vibe is a bit hard to describe, but maybe imagine late 70s Philly soul with some deeper soul vocals – warm, but never too polished or commercial – and still very close to the best traditions of earlier soul music, while sounding a bit more mature. Artists here include some older southern soul acts from the 60s, mixed with up-and-comers in the 70s, and a few special acts that Malaco helped discover themselves – in a great set of 20 tracks that include "Sweet Life" by Frederick Knight, "Girl Overboard" by Dorothy Moore, "Trust In Me" by Natural High, "Sara Smile" by Latimore, "Let Me Be" by The Duncans, "Show Me" by Mosley & Johnson, "Come To Bed" by Denise Lasalle, "So In Love" by Freedom, "Groovin" by Power, "I Wonder Where The Love Has Gone" by Shirley Brown, "I Need Your Love" by Patterson Twins, "Just To Love Someone Like You" by Sho Nuff, "Take A Chance On Me" by Eddie Floyd, "Let Your Love Rain Down On Me" by Jewel Bass, and "When Can We Do This All Over Again" by ZZ Hill.

British rock, but with plenty of soul – as these artists were some of the first in the world to be influenced by the sound of early Motown Records – then set about trying to create their own strand of Detroit soul! The influence of Motown on the sound of so many other scenes has been well documented over the years – but this cool little set gets right to the heart of the matter – by representing the kind of British singers and groups who were some of the first to revel in the spirit of Berry Gordy and his creations – then find a way to move things forward with new recordings of their own! As always with Ace Records, the set is way more than just music – as there's a big booklet of notes, with details on all the many tracks and artists – a double dozen selection, with tracks that includes "Sweet Thing" by Georgie Fame, "Mickey's Monkey" by The Hollies, "No 1 In Your Heart" by Herbie Goins & The Nighttimers, "Heat Wave" by Beverley Jones & The Prestons, "One Of These Days" by Guy Darrell, "I Want To Go Back There Again" by Bill Kenwright & The Runaways, "The Way You Do The Things You Do" by Elkie Brooks, "I'll Be Doggone" by Billy J Kramer with The Dakotas, "As Long As I Know He's Mine" by Julie Grant, "Money" by The Undertakers, "I Want A Love I Can See" by John Leyton & The LeRoys, "Stubborn Kind Of Fellow" by The Roulettes, "Every Little Bit Hurts" by Spencer Davis Group, "You Really Got A Hold On Me" by Small Faces, "Never Leave Your Baby's Side" by Tony Jackson, "No Good Without You" by The Birds, and "Let's Go Somewhere" by Beryl Marsden.

✨✧ VariousReal Sound Of Chicago – Underground Disco From The Windy City ... LP
BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $24.99 27.99
The kind of record that makes us mighty proud to live in the Windy City – and a long-overdue look at the wealth of rare club, disco, and soul cuts bubbling in the Chicago underground at the end of the 70s! During the early part of the decade, the city was widely known for some super-huge soul acts – and in the 80s, house would raise Chicago to international fame – but in the space between, the city kept on putting out some really wonderful music – wicked little cuts issued on small indie labels, most of which never got any circulation outside the midwest! The Mr Peabody crate-digging team's collected together the best of the best from these overlooked years – and also threw in a few of their own edits too – furthering the dancefloor potential of some of the best rare nuggets. 2LP version features 8 cuts – including "Never Gonna Fall In Love Again" by Carmen Amez – plus seven Mr Peabody edits – versions of "Too Far Gone" by LaJohn & Sheela, "The Challenge" by Billy Hinton, "The Composer" by Fantasie, "Running To A Disco" by Lonnie Givens, "Bass Come Back" by The Moore Brothers, "Disco Ball" by Brighter Side Of Darkness, and "Your Love Is In The Pocket" by Premonition.

VariousShe Came From Liverpool – Merseyside Girl Pop 1962 to 1968 ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
Liverpool is best known as the home of The Beatles – but back in the 60s, the city was overflowing with tremendous musical talent – including a wealth of female groups and singers who added a heck of a lot to the British scene in the decade! This collection digs very deep into that great well of sound – and pulls together key cuts by a few bigger names, plus lots more work by artists we never would have discovered otherwise – female singers who recorded rare singles for the British major labels, then never graced the charts again – yet left us all the wonderful little gems that make up this package! The set list is wonderful – almost an all-girl answer to the male-dominated sounds of the British Invasion – and the whole thing has the usual wonderful Ace Records notes that detail all the great songs within. 25 titles in all – with tracks that include "That Boy Of Mine" by The Breakaways, "Someone To Love" by Three Bells, "Long Tall Shorty" by The Liverbirds, "Everybody Loves A Lover" by Beryl Marsden, "Baby Don't Look Down" by Tiffany With The Thoughts, "I Want You" by Jeannie & The Big Guys, "A Shot Of Rhythm & Blues" by Cilla Black, "Come See Me" by Sandy Edmonds, "Just Being Your Baby Turns Me On" by Cindy Cole, "Dumb Head" by The Sharades, "I Don't Want To Be The One" by Samantha Jones, "Am I Dreaming" by Tiffany, "Till He Tells Me" by Jacki Martin, and "I Don't Understand" by Nola York.

A great little Holiday soul compilation – one that's heavy on gems from vintage years, but which also features a few surprising cuts of more recent vintage as well!

✨✧ VariousSource – Funky Breaks & Sampled Soul Of TK Records ... CD
TK/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Famous tracks from the legendary Miami Soul powerhouse TK Records – famous not because they were hits in the 70s, but because they were used in later years as hip hop samples – dug from the deep well of music that TK recorded back in the day, to lay the blueprint for a whole new generation! The set brings together 15 gems that are not only funky, and which have key elements that you'll know from hip hop songs – but which also stand pretty darn strongly on their own, as a fantastic overview of the care of creation that TK brought to its work in the studio. Titles include "Groove To Get Down" by T-Connection, "Dedicate All My Love" by Raw Soul Express, "Sweet Thang" by The 13th Floor, "Living Together Is Keeping Us Apart" by Clarence Reid, "Good Good Lovin" by Charles Johnson, "To Touch You Again/Lady Blue" by John Tropea, "Givin Me Your Love" by Facts Of Life, "Dance With Me" by Peter Brown, "Why Can't We Live Together" by Timmy Thomas, and both versions of "90% Of Me Is You" – one by Gwen McCrae, one by Vanessa Kendrick. Also features some J Rocc mixes – "I Get Lifted (J Rocc edit)" by George McCrae, "Keep It Up (J Rocc edit)" by Milton Wright, "I Love The Way You Love (J Rocc dub)" by Betty Wright, and "Clean Up Woman (J Rocc edit)" by Betty Wright.

VariousStudio One Lovers Rock ... CD
Studio One/Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
A set that offers up a slightly different look at the Studio One label – and at the lovers rock style of reggae that broke big at the end of the 70s! Studio One is often known for its rough-edged early classics – but right from the start, the label had a great ear for soul – which proved a perfect fit for the sorts of mellow steppers that made lovers rock so great! And before you think that "lovers" means "soft" or "commercial" – think again, as these cuts are prime reggae at its best – and often represent a later current that kept the rocksteady vibe going strong, especially with the expressive strengths of the right sort of lead singers of groups serving up the tune. The work here is more down to earth than the headier themes of the roots reggae generation – often very personal in approach – on titles that include "Tumbling Tears (12" disco mix)" by Alton Ellis, "I'll Be Gone" by Horace Andy, "Oh Me Oh My" by Jerry Jones, "Yours Until Tomorrow" by Carlton & The Shoes, "I Hold The Handle" by The Heptones, "Wanna Be Free" by Horace Andy, "Rock All Night" by Billy Cole, "Ghetto Girl" by Sugar Minott, "Soulful Music" by The Invaders, "My Ting A Ling (12" disco mix)" by The Heptones, "I Was Born To Be Loved" by The Righteous Flames, "Truly" by Marcia Griffiths, and "I Don't Know" by Freddie McGregor.

✨✧ VariousThree Day Week – When The Lights Went Out 1972 to 1975 ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very different picture of the British scene than you might know from the worlds of classic rock and chart hits of the early 70s – as this collection focuses on a really special sort of sound that hints at the bleaker, less satisfying sides of English life – often with a slightly sinister quality that might come as a big surprise! The package is a follow-up to previous gems from compilers Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs – like the compilations English Weather and State Of The Union – and like those, there's a wonderfully unified vision to the whole package – almost a mini-sociology statement, but one that's completely fun – given the fantastic range of music chosen for the album. Tracks are a non-stop surprise all the way through – as glammy bits mix with offbeat pop, catchy prog, and plenty of other tunes that maybe defy any sort of generic description altogether! Titles include "Rod" by Matchbox, "Kill" by Mike McGear, "Part Of The Union" by The Brothers, "The Hertfordshire Rock" by Ricky Wilde, "Sailing" by Sutherland Brothers Band, "And The Fun Goes On" by Lieutenant Pigeon, "War Against War" by Pheon Bear, "Roly Pin" by Roly, "Stardust" by David Essex, "What Ruthy Said" by Cockney Rebel, "Why Am I Waiting" by Robin Goodfellow, "Urban Guerilla" by Hawkwind, "Londonderry" by Phil Cordell, and "Cut Loose" by Stud Leather.

✨✧ VariousUnissued Sixties Garage Acetates Volume 3 – Train To Nowhere ... LP
Norton, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Norton Records, the reigning deep garage rock relic hunters, have done it again – a straight up incredible batch of rugged, shambling r&b fueled, punk rock prefiguring singles from 1964-1968 – stuff that's never even been officially released! The stuff runs the gamut, from raw, but capable blue eyed interpretations of r&b, to wild instrument bashing in the most hard charging and stumbling tradition. Some of it's ultra low fi, others raw, but with a clarity that could have pushed it closer to the mainstream – totally great stuff that's gotta be fresh news to even the most devoting 60s garage enthusiasts! Titles include "Woman" by Fantatics, "I'm Gone" by Noblemen, "My Heart Is In Pain" by Dave And The Wanderers, "Hey" by Wombats, "Let Me Tell You Girl" by Juveniles, "I Feel So Well" by 4 Dimensions, "I'm On My Own" by Straightjackets, and more. 14 tracks in all.

✨✧ VariousWayfaring Strangers – Cosmic American Music ... LP
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The influence of the Byrds, Gram Parsons, and Flying Burrito Brothers knew no bounds back in the day – as you'll hear on this wonderful collection of underground recordings that followed very strongly in their lead! If you think alt-country's only a recent invention, then think again – because way back at the end of the 60s, folks were already starting to come up with their own variant of the sounds of Nashville and Bakersfield – music that's often a bit more gut-wrenching than the mainstream, and which often has those currents of sadness and longing that we love especially strongly in Parsons' records. As usual with Numero, the presentation is wonderful – a special sort of package that features images of all the rare records included, and notes on each individual artist – alongside a set list that includes "Lonesome City" by Black Canyon Gang, "Baby's Back" by Kenny Knight, "To See Her Smile" by Arrogance, "Travelin" by Jimmy Carter & Dallas County Green, "And I Didn't Want You" by Mistress Mary, "Lilly Of The Valley" by Dan Pavlides, "You Can't Make It Alone" by Plain Jane, "Spirit Of The Golden Juice" by FJ McMahon, and "I Know Her Well" by Sandy Harless.
