✨✧ Tony OrlandoHalfway To Paradise – The Complete Epic Masters 1961 to 1964 ... CD
Epic/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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!

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ 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 ... 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

✨✧ VariousBay Area Funk 2 – Funk & Soul Essentials From San Francisco, Oakland, & The Bay Area ... 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.

June ChristySomething Cool (Mono & Stereo) ... CD
Capitol, 1953. Used ... $0.99
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. 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!

Jimmy HeathOn The Trail ... CD
Riverside, 1964. Used ... $8.99
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

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 ... $19.99
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

J-SquadJ-Squad ... CD
Universal (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... $29.99
A really fantastic group from the Japanese scene – a quintet that features trumpeter Takuya Kuroda, who you'll know from his American releases – but a combo that's equally great all around! At some level, these guys are in an older school soulbop mode – but they've also clearly got a knowledge of the more rhythmic modes of the Japanese club jazz, in groups like Sleepwalker and Quasimode – which means that they're balanced here between straight ahead tracks that have lots of soaring solos, and some more rhythmic, color-based tracks that give the album a lot of drive! In addition to Kuroda on trumpet, other players include Yasushi Nakamura on bass, Keita Ogawa on drums, Tomoaki Baba on tenor, and Takeshi Ohbayashi on piano and keyboards – on titles that include "Awesome Beef", "Travelers", "Starting Five", "DB", "Mood For The Mode", "Singeriser", and "Momo".

MushroomGlazed Popems ... CD
Black Beauty, 2004. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99 15.99
These guys keep getting better and better – and this album may well be their best set to date! The album's a massive double-length set – broken down into 2 different discs, one titled London, the other titled Oakland – both of them each with their own theme. The London set has a more laidback psychedelic approach – hearkening towards the heady days of the late 60s, with some slight folksy touches and a nice trippy sound overall. The Oakland disc is darker and heavier – with traces of funk, electric Miles-type jazz, and other elements that recall the best years of the back bay scene. 17 titles in all – with tracks that include "Blackwaterside", "Pink Island", "Bert Jansch", "A Stone's Throw From Coe Fen", "Glazed Popems", "Blues For Bobby Seale", and "Tin Foil Hat".

Jimmy SommersSunset Collective ... CD
Gemini, 2007. Used ... $5.99
Smooth, soulful work from Jimmy Sommers – a saxophonist, but one who comes across here with a sound that's almost more soul than jazz! The backings on the set are great – a warmly flowing tapestry of keyboards and gentle beats – and Jimmy's tenor glides across the top with a slinky, seductive quality that's got almost as much "voice" as if he were singing. But thanks to guest vocals from Rahsaan Patterson, Macy Gray, and Vikter Duplaix, Jimmy sticks to his sax throughout – and while we're mentioning guest stars, we should also let you know that Paul Oakenfold also appears on 2 tracks. Titles include "Vertical", "Lovelife (rmx)", "Happy Hour", "If I Knew", "Let Your Body Go", "Out Of Nowhere", and "The Islands". CD

Tower Of PowerBump City/Tower Of Power (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1972/1973. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99
Two classic albums from Tower Of Power – back to back in a single set, and with bonus tracks too! On the first album, Bump City, Tower Of Power move down to Memphis for the recording – and almost pick up a bit of Stax Records vibe in the process! The Memphis location is a key hint to the groove going on down here – a sound that's steeped in southern elements, even though the group themselves hail from the Bay Area – carried off with a quality that's a wonderful blend of funky rhythms, jazzier horns, and even a bit of fuller touches from the Memphis Strings. Legendary guitarist Steve Cropper helps the group out a bit on the session – and the album's got a sweet southern funky groove that sits nicely with the Bay Area groove of the group. Titles include "You Got To Funkifize", "Flash In The Pan", "Down To The Nightclub", "You Strike My Main Nerve", and "Of The Earth". Next is Tower Of Power – one of the harder funk albums by the legendary Oakland combo – done with a hard-driving horn-heavy groove, slathered up in East Bay Grease! The group's got a bit of the stoner funk sound that shows their Bay Area roots, but they're also a lot tighter than most of their California contemporaries, and feel more like some of the groups coming out of Memphis and Muscle Shoals at the same time. Lenny Williams is on lead vocals, Chester Thompson plays organ – and tracks include "Soul Vaccination", "What Is Hip", "So Very Hard To Go", "Just Another Day", "Clean Slate", "Get Yo' Feet Back On The Ground", and "Clever Girl". Bonus tracks include single versions of "What Is Hip" and "You're Still A Young Man". CD

✨✧ Maurice Vander with Kenny Clarke & Pierre MichelotJazz At The Blue Note ... CD
Fontana (Japan), 1961. Used ... $11.99
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

Denny ZeitlinEarly Wayne – Explorations Of Classic Wayne Shorter Compositions ... CD
Sunnyside, 2016. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
A sweet solo piano set by Denny Zeitlin – paying tribute to jazz sax legend Wayne Shorter! Zeitlin has performed Shorter compositions before, but the Early Wayne session is still a pretty wonderful surprise overall. Zeitlin is such a distinct, remarkable composer and player himself, he deftly pulls of the dual tasks of delivering a full on tribute set, but he's also able to use the ageless early Shorter tunes as a framework for some subtle improvisation of his own. Beautifully recorded at the Piedmont Piano Company in Oakland. Includes "Speak No Evil", "Nefertiti", "Ju Ju", "Teru", "Toy Tune", "Infant Eyes", "Paraphernalia", "Ana Maria", "ESP" and "Miyako". CD

VariousBrown Door Story ... CD
Brown Door/Shout (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
A killer collection of funk and soul from an ultra-hip Bay Area label of the 70s – Oakland's enigmatic Brown Door Records – headed up by funk maestro Marvin Holmes! The music's got a beautifully sunny vibe – all the best Bay Area elements of the time, reflected in the scene-crossing, genre-stepping modes that often made the East Bay way more exciting than anything going on in San Francisco – particularly in the cool crossbreeding that would happen between Berkeley, Oakland, and other communities. Holmes' cuts here are a great example of that – still the funk and jazz of his late 60s music for bigger labels, but also pretty stretched-out and open too – filled with an all-encompassing spirit that rivals the best music from the Fantasy studios at the time – but with a hipper, indie vibe all the way through. This spirit also steps over to the work by other artists on the collection, too – and is told in the rich notes and images included with the heavy booklet – both in English and Japanese, at a level that shows the Shout Productions folks stepping into Numero territory. A wonderfully deep compilation – filled with great cuts that include "You & Me", and "Goin Home" by Faye Marshall, "Making New Friends" and "Trippin On The Sounds" by Jeanie Tracy, "Cain't Get Anuff" by Bill Bell, "I Can't Go Without You (parts 1 & 2)" by Doroth Morrison, "Love Yo Love" and "Confess Your Love" by John Turk & The 3rd Street Annex, and the tracks "Kwame", "You Better Keep Her (7" version)", "Find Yourself (parts 1 & 2)", "Gimme Some Tonight (parts 1 & 2)", "Feel So Good (inst)", "You Girl", "Tell The Truth", and "Kimani Mdogo" by Marvin Holmes & Justice.

Dome/Soul Lounge (UK), 2012. Used 3CD ... $11.99
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. Titles include "Nights" by Sy Smith with Rahsaan Patterson, "You Got Love" by Kindred The Family Soul, "Like This" by Avery Sunshine, "1960 What (Opolopo kick & bass rerub)" by Gregory Porter, "Get Myself Together (souldynamic rmx)" by Angela Johnson, "Zaius (Ski Oakenfull mix)" by Incognito, "In The Thick Of It" by Sunburst Band with Angela Johnson, "This Is What You Are" by Mario Biondi, "Sweetness" by Carleen Anderson, "Warm Human" by Heston, "Never In Your Sun" by Khari Cabral Simmons with India Arie, "Body Language" by Anthony David, and "Teardrops" by Avani.

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.
