✨✧ 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".

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 ... $6.99
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. CD

Hieroglyphics3rd Eye Vision ... CD
Hiero Imperium, 1998. Used ... $7.99
Compilation of tracks with rhymes by the various members of Hieroglyphics in a variety of groupings, with Pep Love, Casual, Del, Tajai, Opio, A Plus and Domino on the mic. Production is also by Hiero crew: Casual, Domino, A+, Toure, J-Biz, etc. S0me of the tracks hew closer to the older Hiero sound introduced by Del and the Souls of Mischief on their now classic first couple of LPs, and some of the tracks have a harder feel to them, in a late 90s indie/underground kind of vein. 22 cuts in all, including "The Who", "After Dark", "Mics Of The Roundtable", "Off The Record", "You Never Knew", "All Things", "Oakland Blackouts" and more.

IncognitoEleven ... CD
Dome/Narada, 2005. Used ... $6.99
Is it only 11 albums so far? Given the number of years Incognito's been grooving our world, we'd have thought it was at least 50 records to date! Yet given the richly collaborative spirit of leader Bluey – and his work with many other groups and projects – added to the always-great sound of any Incognito set, it's clear that the group have had an influence that goes far beyond a straight run of just 11 records. There's always a depth to Incognito's work that few other groups can match – including the countless artists of the Neo Soul generation who've been inspired by their older records, but can never seem to cut a record that's as great as one like this! Of course, part of the strength of the set is Incognito's richly-collaborative spirit – a quality that makes plenty of room here for lead vocals by Maysa Leak, Imaani, and Carleen Anderson – and which benefits strongly from some great keyboard lines by Ski Oakenfull. But as usual, mainman Bluey is the one to thank for the record – because his sense of groove, and love of classic 70s-influenced soul comes through very strongly on all tracks – hitting an on-the-money sound that makes the group, and this latest album, stand head to head with some of the best soul acts of classic years. Another winner from Incognito – not a bit of fluff at all – and a sublime batch of tracks that includes "Jacaranda", "Show Me Love", "We Got Music", "Let The Mystery Be", "Will I Ever Learn", "I'll Get By", "As Long As It's You", and "When Tomorrow Brings You Down".

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

Ishmael Reed & OthersConjure – Music For The Texts Of Ishmael Reed ... CD
American Clave, 1987. Used ... $6.99
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

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

VariousGet Your Lie Straight – A Galaxy Of Funky Soul ... CD
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!

Steve Miller BandFly Like An Eagle (CD/DVD – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Edsel (UK), 1976. New Copy ... About September 4, 2015
A masterpiece from SF rocker Steve Miller – and a perfect summation of the years of blues, soul, funk, and rock he'd been soaking up in the Bay Area scene! The album crossed over instantly with the massive cut "Fly Like An Eagle" – already great on its own, but supported here with the massive "Space Intro", which adds an extra minute of cool electronics to the tune. Other great cuts include the amazing funky rocker "Take The Money And Run", plus "The Window", "Mercury Blues", and "Dance, Dance, Dance". CD

Ze/Light In The Attic, 1979. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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! Titles include great versions of "Fire" and "Mission Impossible", plus "No Golden Throat", "Torso Corso", "Jim On The Move", and "Wawa".

Luv N' Haight, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.
