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 ... $28.99 29.98
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".

VariousHeavy Soul ... CD
Warner (Australia), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $23.99
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.

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

June ChristySomething Cool (Mono & Stereo) ... CD
Capitol, 1953. New Copy ... $6.99 9.98
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. Titles include "Something Cool", "It Could Happen To You", "Lonely House", "I'm Thrilled", and "The Night We Called It A Day". Plus, this special CD reissue features the mono and stereo recordings of the album – completely different ones, as the album was originally recorded in mono in 1954, and completely re-recorded again with the same arrangements in 1960!

Shaun EscofferyIn The Red Room ... CD
Dome (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $16.99
We haven't heard from Shaun Escoffery in years – but damn, it's really been worth the wait! This album really knocks it out of the park from the very first note – and pushes Shaun way way farther than his previous work, which we really loved a lot – into some kind of sublime classic soul territory that may hopefully get him the international fame he deserves! Escoffery's got this great back to basics approach on the record – still schooled by his more cosmic years on the London scene, but also soaking up plenty of older, deeper soul elements too – yet fusing them in a way that's completely modern, completely fresh, and very individual. There's nothing retro soul about the record – despite some burning Hammond and guitar at points – and the whole thing was done in close collaboration with producer Gil Cang, who also played most of the instruments and helped on backing vocals too. Titles include "Nature's Call", "Perfect Love Affair", "People", "Do U Remember", "Crazy", "Nobody Knows", "By Your Side", "Get Over", and "Day After Day". CD

Marvin HolmesHonor Thy Father (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus track) ... CD
Brown Door/Shout (Japan), 1975. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
A real killer from Marvin Holmes and his hip Oaktown combo Justice – a group who effortlessly blend together jazz, soul, and funk into a wonderfully soaring style – yet one that's also more than heavy enough to live up to the message-oriented lyrics of the tracks! The album's one of those rare soul sides that really blows away most of the mainstream from the time – a wonderfully heady album that could only have been cut in the underground – where folks like Marvin were keeping things real, and pushing a social agenda that was way stronger than anything you'd find in the charts! Horns are great, as are the rhythms – and the vocals blend together perfectly on cuts that include "Motherless Child", "You Better Keep Her", "Take The Time Out", "Neighbor Neighbor", "Kwame", "Gimme Some Tonight", and "Find Yourself". CD features a bonus part 3 of "Gimme Some Tonight" too! CD

Nils LindbergNew Saxes Galore – Melody In Blue ... CD
Dragon (Sweden), 1993. Used ... $8.99
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 ... $12.99 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".

RunawaysQueens Of Noise ... CD
Cherry Red/Mercury (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
The second great album by Kim Fowley's pet Runaways – the album with Lita Ford, Joan Jett and the rest of the gals cloaked in fog and straddling polls on the cover – making them look like a cross between Mott The Hoople and the headliners at that seedy club by the airport! Like the debut, the Queens Of Noise album is total ear candy – and this one is actually probably even a little bit more consistent – and might rock a little harder, too. It's not quite as notorious without the illicit wallop of the group's debut single "Cherry Bomb" – but that's probably the only reason it's not as well remembered. They were still underage at this point, too, so the front-to-back innuendo still resonates! Buy this and the debut album, then take your Donna's CDs back to the mall! Tracks include "Queens Of Noise", "Take It Or Leave It", "Midnight Music", "Born To Be Bad", "Neon Angels On The Road To Ruin", "I Love Playing With Fire", "California Paradise", "Hollywood", "Heartbeat", and "Johnny Guitar". This new Cherry Red reissue has new liner notes, plus the original art and notes. 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

Explosive Joe Meek instrumentals from the 60s UK scene – with scorchers by The Tornados, The Packabeats, The Moontrekkers, The Fentones, The Ted Taylor Four, The Outlaws, Tony Hatch, The Phantoms and many more! If you're unfamiliar, Meek was a virtuoso producer with a sound and style that was anything but meek – anchored by raw rhythms, searing guitars and electronic embellishments that were far ahead of their time – all fueling these mad instrumentals with touches of R&B, rockabilly, surf and soundtracky styles ranging from sci fi to westerns! Wild, fun stuff that's almost completely instrumental. Titles includes "Theme From 'The Traitors'" and "Evening In Paris" by The Packabeats, "Telstar" and "Earthy" by The Tornados, "Ku-Pow!" and "Sioux Serenade" by The Outlaws, ""There's Something At The Bottom Of The Well" and "Hatashiai" by The Moontrekkers, "The Mexican" by The Fentones, "Cloak And Dagger" by The Echoes, "Taboo" by Sounds Inc", "Checkpoint", "Border Patrol" and ore by Dennis Newey, "Out Of This World" by Tony Hatch and more. 33 tracks in all!

40 tracks, at one mighty nice price – and a killer entry in the long-running Soul Lounge series! Think "soul" more than "lounge" – and get past the Hed Kandi-like image on the cover – because this stuff is the real deal – a great collection of Neo Soul gems pulled from the rich catalog of Dome Records – plus excellent tracks from other contemporary labels too! There's plenty to love here if you love our Neo Soul section – and we dare say that the track selection here is as good as we would have chosen, were we to put out such a set.

Trilyte/Matsuli (UK), 1971. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Spiritual sounds and a heck of a lot more – served up by Ndiko Xaba, an expatriate South African musician who was working in Oakland at the time of this record – fusing together the roots of his homeland with some wonderfully free and open American jazz styles! At times, there's a bit of a Dollar Brand vibe in Xaba's piano – long lines, with a really compelling pulse – but other times, the music opens up with the kind of searching freedoms you'd hear on the AACM scene of the time – mixing together righteous styles with inventive musical expression! The great Plunky – of Oneness Of Juju fame – is in the group on tenor, soprano sax, and flute – and the record also features Black Fire labelmate Lon Moshe on vibes and percussion, plus additional percussion, bass, and drums. Titles include "Freedom", "Flight", "Nomusa", "Makohsi", and "Shwabada". CD features two great bonus tracks – both very soulful – "Zulu Lunchbag" and "Big Time". CD

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. A great sounding, long overdue document of a great scene! CD

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