✨✧ German OakDown In The Bunker (3CD set) ... CD
Bunker/Now Again, 1972. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
One of the darkest albums of the Krautrock scene in the 70s – an album that was actually recorded in a WWII-era bunker – where the duo were free to open up their instruments, jam for a very long time, and play with the sorts of effects and techniques you might know from bigger groups of the period! Yet there's a brooding quality here that's different than Can, Faust, or other groups – maybe because German Oak were a duo without a very clear path forward, and also because recording an album in an underground concrete bunker was bound to produced some weird vibes on the session! One of the group members recalls in the notes that in the space, he couldn't help thinking of the trauma of WWII – and you can definitely hear that in the music, and see it in the look of the package – which carries tunes that include "Screaming Skeletons", "Missile Song", "Belle's Song", and "Nothing". This fantastic package offers up some great notes from the group – in both German and English – and also adds in rare material too – the tracks "Bear Song", "Happy Stripes On Cats", "Ghost Guitar", "Belle's Song (extended)", "Python Vs Tiger", "Giant Rock Boulder Golem", "Missle Song (extended)", "Harpy & Peregrine", and "Bear Song (alt version)".

Tony OrlandoHalfway To Paradise – The Complete Epic Masters 1961 to 1964 ... CD
Epic/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $7.99 18.99
Way before Tony Orlando started tying a ribbon around that old oak tree, he cut some wonderful work for the Epic label – early 60s Brill Building pop at its finest, recorded with a host of top-shelf talents! Arrangements here are by Carole King, Alan Lorber, Garry Sherman, and other New York pop luminaries – all of whom cast Tony's vocals in a surprisingly soulful blend of strings with deeper drums and bass – a groove that's a bit like some of the uptown soul that was coming into play on the scene at the time, and which is a lot less than the simple pop you might expect. Orlando's presentation of the material is really great – never prone to easy gimmicks, and often with a slightly fragile style that's a far cry from his 70s fame. Titles include "Bless You", "My Baby's A Stranger", "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow", "Tell Me Where To Run To", "That Lovin Touch", "Shirley", "The Loneliest", "I'll Be There", "Accept It", "I'd Never Find Another You", "Talkin About You", and "Some Kinda Wonderful". 27 tracks in all – with great notes on this phase of Tony's career!

✨✧ Don Reno & Red Smiley/Bill HarrellComplete King/Starday Recordings Vol 3 – 1963 to 1972 (4CD set) ... CD
King/Gusto, 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 4CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A huge look at the final years of the legendary bluegrass team of Don Reno & Red Smiley – and the almost-lost recordings of the following work that Don Reno recorded with guitarist Bill Harrell! By the time of these tracks, Reno's fame had risen strongly as a genius on the banjo – the set seems to have even more instrumentals than before, recorded in that "close to the roots" vibe that always made the King Records material of the 60s such a nice contrast to some of the more commercial work that was coming to dominate the market. There's also some nice surprises, too – like a full Christmas album, and also a tribute to labelmate Cowboy Copas – plus lots more of the fantastic harmony tunes that first put the duo on the map. As with the other titles in this series, the presentation is excellent – very detailed notes with lots of history and session information – in strong support of a whopping 95 tracks that include "Chinese Breakdown", "Christmas Doll", "I Don't Blame You", "There Ain't Nobody Gonna Miss Me", "Tragic Romance", "Too Many Tear Drops", "Sundown & Sorrow", "Down Yonder", "Big Train", "Oak Grove Church", "If I Never Wake Again", and "Twelve String Time".

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.

✨✧ VariousYou Got Yours – East Bay Garage 1965 to 1967 ... CD
Big Beat (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great garage work from the east side of the San Francisco Bay – a scene that's not nearly as well known for gritty rock as Los Angeles or the Pacific Northwest! This batch of nuggets really flips the lid off the East Bay scene – and shows that the area around Oakland was heavy in recording work during the mid 60s – a host of small labels, and countless bands who all had a great way with a fuzzy guitar riff, a tinny organ line, a rumbling drum part, and a dark-edged vocal. Nearly all of the acts here are completely new to our ears – brought to life brilliantly not only by the track selection, but also through the detailed liner notes and photos – clearly a huge amount of research by compiler Alec Palao. If you dig early Love or The Seeds, you'll find plenty to dig here too – and titles include "Luv Look Away" by The Baytovens, "Get Out Of My Eye" by The Soul Vendors, "Not The Least Bit True" by The Shillings, "Humpty Dumpty" by The Epics, "Bo Said" by Just Six, "Away Girl" by The Towaway Zone, "Where I Belong" by The Day Trippers, "Look At The Sun" by The Gants, "Gotta Find A New Love" by The Spyders, "Who Stole The Batmobile" by The Gotham City Crime Fighters, "Baby What's New" by Peter Wheat & The Breadmen, and "Tomorrow's Soul Sound" by The Harbinger Complex.

IncognitoClassic Album Series (Who Needs Love/Adventures In Black Sunshine/Eleven/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Dome (UK), 2002/2004/2005. New Copy 3 CDs ... $14.99
Three great albums from Incognito – served up at a mighty nice price, and with bonus tracks too! Who Needs Love is a gem from over a decade ago – and Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick pulled out all the stops on this set – working with a range of vocalists that includes Joy Rose, Kelli Sae, Tony Momrelle, Joy Malcolm, and Brazilian soul legend Ed Motta! The range of voices on the set really gives it a lot of depth – moving past the easy jazz funk moments of earlier sets, and going for an all-solid, all-soulful approach that really blows our mind! Great stuff all the way through – maybe their best album in years – and a record you'll be playing into the next decade. Titles include "Morning Sun", "Who Needs Love", "Stone Cold Heart", "Where Love Shines", "Blue", "Fly", "If You Want My Love", and "Cada Dia". On Adventures In Black Sunshine, the groove is sweetly soulful, with a jazzy undercurrent that hearkens back to the best west coast soul of the 70s – and Bluey's got the group honed to perfection, playing with a razor-sharp edge that keeps the tunes as funky as they are soulful! Vocals are by Maysa and Tony Momrelle – and tracks include "Don't Turn My Love Away", "This Thing Called Love", "The Principles Of Love", "Everything Your Heart Desires", "Close My Eyes", "25th Chapter", and "Mr Jones". Eleven is a record that's a great testament to 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". Bonus tracks include the previously-unreleased "To Prove My Love" and "Feel The Real" – plus "Zaius (Ski Oakenfull mix)". CD

VariousSoul Lounge Volume 12 – 40 Soulful Grooves (3CD box set) ... CD
Dome/Soul Lounge (UK), 2015. Used 3CD ... $12.99
One of the greatest values in contemporary soul music – and a series we can still highly recommend even after the course of eleven previous volumes! The 3CD package is overflowing with great tracks far from the mainstream of soul – the kind of current, underground tracks that you'll hear from only a select few on both sides of the Atlantic – with an especially strong focus on UK soul artists here, given that the Dome Records label puts out some of the best of the London scene! There's plenty here to love – including a number of tracks that haven't been on CD before – and titles include "Sleepwalkers (Opolopo rmx)" by Jarrod Lawson, "Lowdown (Ski Oakenfull rmx)" by Incognito with Mario Biondi & Chaka Khan, "People (DJ Spen & Gary Hudgkins rmx)" by Shaun Escoffery, "Just For One Day" by Imaani, "Music & Its Magical Way" by Jarrod Lawson, "Soul Town (Nigel Lowis rmx)" by Ola Onabule, "Deja Vu" by Angela Johnson, "Bridge Over Troubled Water (acoustic)" by Shaun Escoffery, "Believe Me" by Anthony David, "Ever After (Jiva rmx)" by Seek, "Touch My Body" by Cooly's Hot Box, "Brighter Tomorrow" by Diplomats Of Soul, "Major Bossa" by Khari Cabral Simmons with Sabrina Malheiros, "Change" by Full Flava with Joy Rose, and "Every Time I Turn Around" by Makeda. 40 tracks in all!

VariousSoulful Side Of GME & Musette Records ... CD
Tramp (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
An untapped legacy of rare soul music from the California scene of the 60s – all issued by the GME and Musette labels in San Diego – the latter of which was operated only as a tax writeoff for a small group of doctors! That status didn't stop the companies from putting out some wonderful sounds, though – and there's a vibe here that almost seems to trace a westward path from Texas to the west coast – with some of the deep soul and blues currents that you'd hear in work from Oakland at the time! Some of these tracks are nice and funky, others are mellower with a really hard-burning approach that's great – and the singers are wonderful throughout – proof that even in the smallest of settings, a true soul star will always deliver their best. Titles include "Steppin Stone" by Little Mary Staten, "You Gotta Give Up Some Money" by Dede Copland, "Sunset Strip" by Garnett Scott & Lani Groves, "Just Do Your Thing" by Big Daddy Rucker, "Duck All Over Town (parts 1 & 2)" by Arlene Williams, "Sweet Sixteen" by Lani Groves, "Jealous Man" by Big Daddy Rucker, "The Price I Had To Pay" by Dede Copeland, "You're Nobody Til Somebody Loves You" by Lenni Groves, "She's Alright" by Ervin Rucker, and "Xmas In The Ghetto" by Big Daddy Rucker.

✨✧ June ChristySomething Cool (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1953. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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. And, on this CD reissue, you'll also hear the pair in a whopping amount of extra material, pulled from singles and albums issued around the same time, for a total of 24 cuts in all. Titles include "Magazines", "Whee Baby", "I'm Thrilled", "Out Of Somewhere", and "The Night We Called It A Day". Fantastic stuff! CD

Riverside, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little record by Jimmy Heath – arguably one of his best, and a real no-nonsense session that lets him shine as the tenor star that he is! The group's a small one – with Wynton Kelly, Kenny Burrell, and Paul Chambers – and Heath's right out front, blowing up a storm, in a confident solo-happy style that sounds more like Sonny Rollins than a lot of his other work! Titles include "Cloak and Dagger", "Vanity", "Project S", and "I Should Care". CD

Lua (Brazil), 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
New work from Brazilian piano legend Dom Salvador – a spare trio set, recorded with all the elegance and power of his best early albums, but with a darkness that we wouldn't have expected. The session was cut in New York a few years back, and it's got a lightly lyrical style that opens up without getting overindulgent – a good match between the striking quality of Salvador's early bossa work, and the richly soulful influences he's soaked up in his years on the American scene. Titles include "Piano Vignette", "Azul Contente", "Bahia Com H", "Ana Luiza", "Toada", "Bass Vignette", and "Transition". CD

✨✧ Zo & Tigallo (Phonte of Little Brother)Love The 80s EP ... CD
Hall Of Justus, 2008. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An ode to the 80s from the duo of Zo & Tigallo (aka Phonte of Little Brother) with a little help from Nicolay, Darien Brockington and Trackademiks – a keyboard-soaked, neon-bright, just let your soul glow homage to the r&b & pop hits of the 80s! Zo handles the keys and most of the instrumentation and Phonte takes on a soul croon – if he was amazing singer he'd quit his day job as a great rapper – but it's really all about having a good time here, and it delivers! You can tell from the cover photo that they're doing this tongue-in-cheek, but they actually show genuine respect and affection for the material they're covering – bringing fresh life to some VH1's "I Love The 80s" caliber pop tunes! Titles include "Africa", "Take On Me", "I'm Only Human", "Written All Over Your Face", "Steppin' Out 2008", "Steppin' Out" (Trackademicks Extra Wet Like Stoney Jackson's Curl rmx), "Something About You 2008", "Something About You" (Nicolay's Nighty Night Quiet Storm rmx).

✨✧ VariousGet Your Lie Straight – A Galaxy Of Funky Soul ... CD
Galaxy/BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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!

Dome/Soul Lounge (UK), 2017. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic set of contemporary soul tracks – music from both sides of the Atlantic, served up in a well-priced collection that brings together the best of the British and American underground soul scenes! A good deal of the work here is from the catalog of the Dome label in the past decade or so – an imprint who continues to be one of the few stronger indie labels dedicated to discovering and properly presenting the best in soul music – something that's becoming more and more important in recent years, as so many new artists only issue digital releases. This 3CD pacakge is a great reminder of how wonderful it can be to hear tracks like these on a proper CD release – and the whole thing's a treasure trove throughout – with 40 tracks that include "Sky (Ski Oakenfull rmx)" by Bluey, "Spiritual Eyes (Young Pulse & ATN rmx)" by Jarrod Lawson, "Feel Like Dancing" by Heston, "Need You Now" by Avery Sunshine, "Looking For" by Eric Roberson, "You Know Just When" by Dennis Taylor, "Morning Love" by Simon Law, "To Prove My Love" by Incognito, "Hurts Like Hell" by Angela Johnson, "Let's Do It Right" by Imaani, "Something More" by Makeda, "Like Rain" by Greg Dean with Natalie Weiss & Amber Iman, "Never Letting Go" by Frank McComb, "Crazy" by Rahsaan Patterson, "Only Be Me" by Conya Doss, "Surrender" by Seek, "The Real Thing" by Avani, "People Of Tomorrow" by Citrus Sun, and "Take It" by Cooly's Hot Box.
