✨✧ VariousHeavy Soul ... CD
Warner (Australia), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Heavy soul, but not just from soul artists – and instead a really great range of tracks that includes work from rootsy rockers and country musicians as well! The package traces the strong influence of soul music on so many different styles at the start of the 70s – bits of funk borrowed in the rhythms, slices of politics used in the lyrics, and modes of singing that were a lot more expressive and unbridled than before – especially for some of the key artists in the set! A few crossover soul cuts mix nicely with material from a whole host of different scenes – all surprisingly united in style, thanks to a good emphasis on funky rock elements at the core. The package is another wonderful entry from this excellent Warner Australia series – and titles include "They Caught The Devil" by Tony Joe White, "They Call It Rock & Roll Music" by Delaney & Bonnie with King Curtis, "Lord Have Mercy On My Soul" by Black Oak Arkansas, "We Had It All" by Donnie Fritts, "Born To Be Wild" by Wilson Pickett, "Right Place Wrong Time" by Dr John, "On Your Way Down" by Allen Toussaint, "Sure As Sin" by Jeanie Greene, "Cry Like A Baby" by Cher, "Anna Karina" by Jackie Deshannon, "Shotgun Willie" by Willie Nelson, "Dixie Fried" by James Luther Dickinson, "I Found A Love" by Lonnie Mack, "15 Degrees" by Sam Samudio, and "Going Back To Luka" by Don Nix. 2CD set features 37 tracks in all.

✨✧ Tony Joe WhiteComplete Warner Brothers Recordings (Tony Joe White/Train I'm On/Homemade Ice Cream/singles) ... CD
Warner/Real Gone, Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A trio of tremendous albums from the legendary Tony Joe White – packaged here with bonus singles too! First up is Tony Joe White's terrific self-titled set for Warner in '71 – his swamp rock mastery in full swing by this point, and all the cooler on a record that finds hip working with some occasional horns and lush bits of strings! There was really no finessing the grit out of the Tony Joe show, so the occasional sweeter touches to the production really does make the groove tastier and more soulful. Titles include "They Caught The Devil And Put Him In Jail In Eudora, Arkansas", "My Kind Of Woman", "Black Panther Swamps", "I Just Walked Away", "Voodoo Village" and more. Train I'm On has Tony Joe White working at Muscle Shoals – a great southern combination, and one that makes for one of White's most unique albums! There's a bit grit in the rhythms, and a bit more of that well-rounded Muscle Shoals soul – as Tony works primarily on acoustic guitar, on tunes that get some slight sweetening from Arif Mardin a times, but in a way that never dims his soul at all. White's great vocals still drive the whole show along – with that strong current of soul that made him a surprisingly big crossover act at the time – and titles include "Sidewalk Hobo", "The Migrant", "As The Crow Flies", "300 Pounds Of Hongry", "Beouf River Road", and "If I Ever Saw A Good Thing". Homemade Ice Cream is the last Warner Brother album by Tony Joe White, and a set that mixes the raw feel of his Monument Records years with these great laidback numbers that have a surprising amount of soul, and a nice undercurrent of funk! White's a powerhouse here – completely confident, but also able to relax into a groove even more than before – and the album's got some surprisingly sensitive acoustic guitar work that seems to show a whole new side of his charms. Titles include "Saturday Night In Oak Grove Louisiana", "California On My Mind", "Backwoods Preacher Man", "No News Is Good News", and "Did Somebody Make A Fool Out Of You". Package also features six non-LP singles – "Delta Love", "Lustful Earl & The Married Woman", "That On The Road Look", "Sign Of The Lion", "Don't Let The Door Hit You In The Butt", and "Wishful Thinking".

Gaby Lita Bembo and Orchestre Stukas du ZaireKita Mata ABC ... CD
Retro Afric (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $12.99
Some of the rawest and fieriest Congolese rumba ever waxed! Gaby Lita Bembo was one of the scene's most eccentric showmen – sporting outlandish outfits and dancing like a madman – but Orchestre Stukas had the attack to back it all up. The frantic rhythms provided the perfect foil for the extroverted guitar work of a succession of dynamic string mavericks – Samunga Tediangaye, Bongo Wende, and Kembo – who all soaked their wild, rhythmically thrilling leads in buckets of reverb. Lita's vocals were shadowed by exuberant unison harmonies, also drenched in otherworldly echo, for a dense, relentless sound. Tracks include "Idee Kono", "Toto Seya", "Lobelia", "Presidents", and "Odeyo". CD

Bluey (Incognito)Life Between The Notes ... CD
Shanachie, 2015. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
Sweet solo work from Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick – the legendary leader of Incognito, and a driving force in global soul music for the past few decades! The set's a bit more instrumental than Bluey's work with his main group – although Bluey himself sings on a number of tracks, with this great voice that's wonderfully down to earth, and which is perfectly balanced by his super-sharp instrumentation, which has all that classic groove we've always loved from Incognito! Familiar associates like Ski Oakenfull, Richard Bull, and Matt Cooper help Bluey out on the project – but it's clear from the start that the mainman is at the helm all the way through, finding a great solo path of his own. Titles include "Caught Up In The Grey", "Tippin On This Feelin", "Hold On", "Saints & Sinners", "Life Between The Notes", "Tomorrow Never Lies", and "Columbus Avenue". CD

June ChristySomething Cool (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Capitol, 1953. Used ... $8.99
From its booze-soaked title cut, to its haunting selection of lonely ballads like "Midnight Sun" and "Stranger Called The Blues", this is one of the most fantastic vocal jazz albums of all time – and a record that we'd recommend instantly to anyone! June Christy has an incredibly icy tone on the record, filled with sorrow, regret, and loneliness – all of which are amplified even more deeply by Pete Rugolo's eerie, off-kilter arrangements. 11 tracks total.

Nils LindbergNew Saxes Galore – Melody In Blue ... CD
Dragon (Sweden), 1993. Used ... $4.99
Beautiful later work from Swedish jazz musician Nils Lindberg – a pianist by trade, but working here with a group that's heavy on the saxes – arranged here in a flurry of wonderful tones and sounds! Lindberg's probably best known here for his early modern recordings of the 50s and 60s, but this 90s session proves that he never stopped growing as an artist – and shows an amazing talent for both composition and arrangement, of the sort you'd normally expect from a reedman! The group features Anders Paulsson, Johan Horlen, Joakim Milder, Krister Andersson, and Charlie Malmberg on a variety of saxes – moving in a way that's wonderfully fresh – hardly a copycat of American 50s modes, or even other Swedish experiments – and instead, opening up with a sound that's extremely contemporary, especially in the way the octet still maintains a relatively lean feel, with lots of room for individual voices. Titles include "For Absent Friends", "In A Latin American Way", "Melody In Blue", "Blues In Tempo Presto", "Vall-Lat", "Vals Fran Enviken", and "Blue Bop". CD

Yoshiyaki MasuoGood Morning ... CD
Electric Bird/King (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $12.99
A nice little wake up call from Yoshiyaki Masuo – a set that has his guitar working in close collaboration with extra guitar from Motoaki Masuo – for a two-stringed approach that's a bit different than some of Yoshiyaki's other records! The music is laidback, but never sleepy – always done with a bright approach that lives up to the spirit of the title – with help from American musicians Victor Bruce Godsey on keyboards and TM Stevens on bass. All titles are originals, and tracks include "Because Of You", "Inside Love", "Little Bit", "Dealing With Life", and "I'm Still Believing In Dreams". CD

✨✧ 9th CreationBubble Gum ... CD
Rite Track/Solaris, 1975. New Copy ... $12.99 15.98
A classic album of jazzed-up funk – the one lasting legacy by this oft-sampled group! 9th Creation originally hailed from west of the Bay Area scene of the 70s – and this album was recorded in Oakland with the same sweet jazzy finish as work by some of the other big Northern California funk acts of the time – especially Pleasure, who with their sharp sense of a groove are probably the closest comparison to the group's sound. The album is best known for the cut "Bubble Gum" – a great number with lots of jazzy changes, and a modern funky groove that still sounds pretty darn fresh – but the whole album is totally great, and filled with plenty of other songs that have the same feel as the title cut! Tracks include "Sexy Girl", "Quit It", "Falling In Love", "We Need Love", and "Rule Of Mind". CD

William Onyeabor & OthersWhat? – William Onyeabor Remixed ... CD
Luaka Bop, 2014. New Copy ... $7.99 13.98
The mad music of William Onyeabor has gained many admirers over the years – a diverse array of artists from a diverse array of scenes – some of whom have come together in this mighty hip tribute to the master! The tunes here are either remixes, reworks, or complete covers of Onyeabor's incredible electric grooves from the late 70s and early 80s – and the project's so special, Luaka Bop even called in the help of Moog to put it together – no surprise, given how moogy some of William's music could be! The remixes are all very faithful, as are the reworks – and even the covers aren't the sort of cloyingly selfish sort you usually get on tribute albums – but instead feel like some great later iteration of Onyeabor's genius. Titles include Hot Chip's cover of "Atomic Bomb", Joakim & Akwetey's cover of "Good Name", David Terranova's remix of "Body & Soul", The Vaccines' remix of "Do You Want A Man", JD Twitch's (Optimo) cover of "Why Go To War?", Javelin's remix of "Heaven & Hell", Scientist's remix of "Body & Soul", and the track "Ye Ye", which is Daphni's rework of "When The Going Is Smooth & Good".

Ishmael Reed & OthersConjure – Music For The Texts Of Ishmael Reed ... CD
American Clave, 1987. Used ... $8.99
A pretty interesting album – one in which a host of jazz and rock players pay set music to texts written by consciousness-raiser/sci-fi author Ishmael Reed. There's a few goofy moments on the set, but if you've read Reed's work, you'll also know that goofiness and oddity are part of the package – elements that are handled nicely here by musicians like David Murray, Allen Toussaint, Arto Lindsay, Milton Cardona, and Kip Hanrahan, who put the whole thing together. Reed himself is also on the record – and titles include "Jes' Grew", "Oakland Blues", "Dualism", and "Dualism (2)". CD

SadakaPremonition ... CD
Jazzman (UK), 1982. New Copy ... $14.99
A record with a really timeless feel – a jazz set from the early 80s scene in Oakland, and one that opens up in so many wonderful flavors! A few cuts have a soul style – with female vocals in the lead, amidst warmer, jazzier backings – and other tracks have an instrumental approach, but one that's a bit different than straight jazz – almost spiritual fusion, in a way that nicely echoes some of the lyrical passages. We'd almost place the set in the same company of the work of Norman Connors in the mid 70s – although the overall sound is somewhat different – the driving creative force here is Umlah Sadau-Holt, who plays Fender Rhodes, soprano sax, tenor, flute, and even percussion. Titles include "African Violet", "Premonition", "Outer Space Blues", "You Make The Sunshine", "Black Encounters", and "Children Of The Universe". CD

SonzeiraBrasil Bam Bam Bam ... CD
Talkin' Loud/Harvest, 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... $10.99 11.98
One of the hippest records we've heard in years from Gilles Peterson – a wonderful project that brings together classic and contemporary Brazilian talents, and some key London artists as well! The lineup features giants from the sorts of older Brazilian records that Gilles hipped us to many years ago – like percussionist Nana Vasconcelos, and singers Marcos Valle, Elza Soares, and Wilson Das Neves – plus contemporary artists like Kassin on bass (he also co-produced too), and Seu Jorge, Lucas Santtana, or Mart'nalia on vocals – and great British artists like Ski Oakenfull on keyboards, Sean O'Hagan on guitar, and Bembe Segue, Valerie Etienne, and Rob Gallagher on vocals! The list of participants is even bigger than this – and the album was recorded in London, Brighton, and Rio – with arrangements by many of the participants too – all to create this complex criss-crossing of the classic and contemporary, British and Brazilian, all with the kind of 21st Century crackle that only Gilles Peterson could carry off this well. Titles include "Where Nana Hides", "Brasil Pandeiro", "Sambaio", "The Mystery Of Man", "Aquarela Do Brasil", "Estrelar", "Bam Bam Bam", "Um Toque", and "City Of Saints". CD

✨✧ Two Banks Of FourThree Street Worlds ... CD
Red Egyptian Jazz (UK), 2003. Used ... $3.99
A tremendous album from Two Banks Of Four – a group that features work from some of our favorite older members of the British scene – including singer Valerie Etienne, and musicians Chris Bowden and Ski Oakenfull! The album's got a really soaring, spacious feel – with jazzy roots that stretch back to groups like Kalima, and include Fertile Ground, but an overall sound that's very much in step with the current sound of the 21st Century London scene. The tunes are all incredibly soulful – driven by warm acoustic basslines and snapping snare percussion – and the album's got an overall feel that has a lot more real jazz playing than just beats and keys – something we approve of highly! Valerie Etienne's vocals have never sounded hipper – and titles include "Angel's Walk", "One Day", "Banks Of The Nile", "Blues For Brother", "Endless", and "Unclaimed". CD

Maurice Vander with Kenny Clarke & Pierre MichelotJazz At The Blue Note ... CD
Fontana (Japan), 1961. Used ... $12.99
A classic album from French pianist Maurice Vander – easily one of the liveliest talents on the keys in postwar Paris, and a player who'd soaked up plenty of influence from Bud Powell's days in France! Maurice is heard here in a tight trio that features Kenny Clarke on drums and Pierre Michelot on bass – a lineup that ensures that Vander's got plenty of dynamic range in the group – and Clarke's crackling touch on the kit is an especially great match for his leadership on the keys! Titles include "Blue Lester", "Autumn Leaves", "Walkin", "The Nearness Of You", and "I'll Remember April". CD

VariousBay Area Funk – Funk & Soul Essentials From San Francisco, Oakland, & The Bay Area 1967-1976 ... CD
Luv N' Haight, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
A killer! As revolutionary as the music and political climate was in the Bay Area in the late 60s and early 70s, it's damn near criminal that there haven't been more representative collections of the music – enter Luv N Haight Records, who are here with the first ever comprehensive compilation of Bay Area funk and hard soul! The kind of funky music that came out of the Bay in the period differs a bit from a lot of mirror sounds from the other coast, the midwest and the south –artists and groups like Sugar Pie Desanto, P-I-R Square, Marvin Holmes and the Uptights, San Francisco T.K.O and others work with short, tight, hard-clapping blasts of 45 funk. Where the funk of other scenes was designed to bounce you along an elastic groove, the Cali school for the most part specialized in short, sweaty, scratchy numbers that were designed to get you on your feet, than knock you straight on your arse! Truly amazing stuff – all funky 45 numbers, many of which are available for the first time on CD! 16 treasures: "Git Back" by Sugar Pie Desanto, "Foxy Girls In Oakland" by Rodger Collins, "Pickin' Cotton" by Johnny Talbot, "Find Yourself" by Marvin Holmes, "Check Me Out" by Kittie Denise, "Trippin' On The Sound" by Jeannie Tracie, "The Trip" by Eugene Blacknell, "Fantasy" by P-I-R Square, "Oomph" by Marvin Holmes, "Herm" by San Francisco T.K.O.'s and lots more – plus great foldout notes with details on each track. A great sounding, long overdue document of a great scene! CD

VariousBay Area Funk 2 – Funk & Soul Essentials From San Francisco, Oakland, & The Bay Area ... CD
Luv N' Haight, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
A way way deeper set than the first volume of Bay Area Funk – and a collection that shows that things got pretty heavy on the San Francisco and Oakland scenes of the 70s! A good number of the tracks here are instrumental, and show some wonderful interplay between the trippier sides of funky jazz and the harder sides of soul going on in the Bay Area back in the day – killer music from the fringes that often got lost in the shuffle of all the better-known music coming out on the bigger labels! The work here is all from very tiny labels – expertly selected and all officially cleared by the Luv N Haight team with keen respect for the artists involved – and in a way, the package has set a new high standard for the label! A tremendous discovery, and filled with tracks we'd never heard before – titles that include "Stop Look Listen" by Primevil, "Poor Sad Child (part 1)" by The Windjammers, "Born To Live With Heartache" by Mary Love, "Move In The Room" by Dawn & Sunset, "Ebony" by Project Soul, "Acid Lady" by San Francisco TKOs, "Hip Breakin" by Little Denise Stevenson, "Devil's On The Run" by Uptights Band, "Brute Strength" by Mile Selesia, and "Lenient With My Love" by The Relatives.

BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
An absolute funky monster! This set lays out an incredible batch of funk era singles from the vaults of Galaxy Records – and it shakes and burns all the way through, with lost funk bombs Bobby Rush, Rodger Collins, Bill Coday, Bobby Eaton, the Debonairs and others! It's comprised of mostly obscure 45s representing the stone funkiest records ever released by the Oakland-based Galaxy label – which was at this point sort of serving as the farm club for big brother label Fantasy Records. This one's essential, kids – just as worthy of your funk-loving dollar as the legendary rare funk compilations on Jazzman, Soul Fire or Stones Throw! 22 tracks in all: "Foxy Girls In Oakland", "Get Your Lie Straight", "Chicken Heads" by Bobby Rush, "Bring It On Up" by Loleatta Holloway, "I Love Her Too" by Lenny Williams, "People Say" by JJ Malone, "Try The Life" by Everyday People, "Man Power" (previously unreleased) by Ben & Larry, "My Money Is Funny" by the Right Kind, "The Iron Horse" by Merl Saunders & Heavy Turbulence, "I Get What I Want" by the Sequins and lots more!

Ze/Light In The Attic, 1979. New Copy ... About August 10, 2015
A brilliant and overlooked gem from the glorious post-disco years of the New York scene – the first album recorded by Lizzy Mercier Descloux, a French native who'd relocated to America in the late 70s, and soaked up a huge array of influences from the scene at the time! The album's a really unique blend of funk, punk, reggae, and disco – done in the playful, genre-crossing spirit of the best Ze Records projects of the period – moving full steam ahead in a blend of infectious rhythms and dancefloor grooves, with nary a care for genre or classification! CD
