Link DavisBig Mamou ... CD
Okeh/Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $9.99 26.99
Link Davis is holding a saxophone on the cover, but he's also a hell of a fiddler too – and this huge collection of his music follows a strong shift in his style over the course of the 50s – from a rootsy cajun musician to one that's got more of a rocking vibe overall! The package brings together rare Okeh and Starday Records singles from Link – material produced by two top country talents of the 50s, Don Law and Pappy Dailey – with a quality level that makes each individual tune really sparkle, and sound great here together as a constellation of overlooked gems from the time! There's plenty of shift between Louisiana and east Texas modes in the music – and titles include "Sixteen Chicks", "Big Mamou", "Time Will Tell", "Hey Garcon", "Rice & Gravy Blues", "Bayou Buffalo", "Trucker From Tennessee", "Slippin & Slidin Sometimes", "Big Coonie", "Grasshopper Rock", "Would You Be Waiting", and "The Crawfish Crawl".

✨✧ Major LanceBest Of Major Lance ... CD
Okeh/BGO (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer work from one of the best 60s soul talents of the Windy City! Major Lance was one of Chicago's first big soul stars – crossing over big on the charts with huge hits for the Okeh label during the early and mid 60s – thanks to some great tunes penned by Curtis Mayfield, and stellar production from the legendary Carl Davis! In a way, Lance's sound was a key culmination of the modes that had been bubbling under in the hometown indies like Vee Jay and Chess – taken slightly to the next level, and brought more into the mainstream by Okeh. Many of the arrangements here are by the massive Johnnie Pate – who gives the record the same sort of brilliance as the best 60s Impressions work on ABC – and the titles include "Ain't No Soul", "Investigate", "Um Um Um Um Um Um", "The Monkey Time", "Wait Till I Get You In My Arms", "Delilah", "Rhythm", "Hey Little Girl", "It's The Beat", "The Matador", "Ain't It A Shame", "You Don't Want Me No More", "You Belong To Me My Love", and "Sometimes I Wonder".

Roy Lee JohnsonWhen A Guitar Plays The Blues ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1960s. New Copy ... $15.99 21.98
Wicked early work from Roy Lee Johnson – a hell of a guitarist, and a soulful singer as well! The package brings together a whopping 30 tracks from Johnson's years at Okeh Records, and runs up to some sweet sides for Philips as well – tracing a great evolution from the late R&B years up to some deeper soul recorded at Fame Studios – a really rich journey in soul music, put together with the usual Bear Family love of historical details! Plenty of notes come with the package – tying Roy to other work with Piano Red (aka Dr Feelgood) – and titles include "Mister Moonlight", "Sea Breeze", "Black Pepper Will Make You Sneeze", "I'm So Happy", "Busybody", "Love Birds", "When A Guitar Plays The Blues", "Plowing Playboy", "Cheer Up Daddy's Comin Home", "Boogaloo #3", "Can You Handle It", "It's All Over", "Stanback Headache Powder", and "She Put The Whammy On Me".

James Brandon Lewis & Chad TaylorLive In Willisau ... CD
Intakt (Switzerland), 2020. New Copy ... $17.99 19.99
Some of the boldest work we've ever heard from tenorist James Brandon Lewis – an artist you might know from his bigger label recordings for Okeh/Sony, but who sounds completely unbridled here in the company of the great drummer Chad Taylor! Taylor's a player who can step outside strongly, yet still find this inherent sense of swing – and that balance works beautifully alongside the tenor of Lewis, and seems to encourage him to take some great chances throughout the set – with some especially great moments of drums and tenor that almost evoke the way that David Murray or Sonny Rollins might handle such a performance! A really revelatory set – and a great reminder of Taylor's genius, too – with selections that include "Watakushi No Sekai", "Matape", "Come Sunday", "Imprints", "Twenty Four", "Radiance", and "Under/Over The Rainbow".

✨✧ Annie LaurieSince I Fell For You – The Essential Annie Laurie ... CD
Jasmine (UK), Late 40s/1950s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great run of music from Annie Laurie – not a New Orleans native, but a singer who helped forge the Crescent City sound in the band of Paul Gayten – before then moving onto work on a whole host of other labels! Laurie was a big act back in her day – and has the dynamic flexibility of a singer like Dinah Washington – easily at home with jazz, jump blues, and other modes too – as you'll hear in this fantastic collection of work! Tracks appeared on the DeLuxe, Okeh, Regal, Ritz, Cosmo, and other labels – brought together here in a batch of 30 tracks that includes "Lonesome & Blue", "Get Me Some Money", "Since I Fell For You", "Rockin & Rollin Again", "It Must Be You", "Annie's Blues", "Cuttin Out", "Stop Talkin & Start Walkin", "It's Gonna Come Out In The Wash Someday", "Hold On To What You Got", "Nobody's Going To Hurt You", "Please Honey Don't Go", "I'll Never Be Free", "My Rough & Ready Man", and "I Feel So Right Tonight".

Edison Electric BandBless You Dr Woodward ... CD
Atlantic/Water, 1970. New Copy ... $7.99 17.99
The only album ever issued by this very groovy group – a quartet who wandered from Philly to San Francisco in the late 60s – where they clearly picked up the right sort of energy to let their freak flag fly! Yet these guys aren't totally Bay Area, either – as they've got more of the east coast roots that echo their start in the Philly scene a few years before – almost that mix of tightness and hipness that graced some of the best Long Island groups who were finding their way into New York during the same generation. There's plenty going on here – especially some nice songwriting, and a way of appreciating influences from blues and soul music – yet never coming across as a blues rock band at all. Titles include "Baby Leroy", "Over The Hill", "Ship Of The Future", "West Wind", "Royal Fool", "Lebanese Packhorse", and "Smokehouse". CD
