PrincePrince ... LP
Warner, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 18.98
An overlooked record in the grand scheme – which is unforgivable in our book! This self-titled album Prince's second album, and already his vision is becoming a little more focused, and you can really hear the seeds of his later efforts – a really remarkable, unique, and fascinating record that stands up with some of his best work, and bucks all late 70s trends and cliches in pop, soul and funk! In some ways this is one of our favorite Prince records, as it has a kind of intimacy that was lacking on later sets – or maybe because the hit "I Wanna Be Your Lover" has such a mad groove! "Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad" has the sly sound that would run throughout the rest of Prince's better work for years to come – and Chaka Khan would later cover "I Feel for You", and hit large with it in the 80s. Also includes "Sexy Dancer", "With You" and "When We're Dancing Close & Slow". LP, Vinyl record album

Isaac HayesHot Buttered Soul (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Stax/Craft, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... On February 2, 2018
Amazing stuff from Isaac Hayes! Although Ike had first appeared on LP with the album "Introducing", this was the first record to really expose his true soul genius – and it was also the first release on Ike's successful sub-label at Stax, Enterprise Records. The record shows that for all the years Ike was working away on other folks' songs for Stax, he was carefully cooking up his own style of soul that would forever change the way we think about the music. Back in 1969, the album must have blown more than a few minds for its incredibly baroque approach to soul music – taking common elements like strings, piano, and funky rhythms, and stretching them out into long waves of sound that cycle over and over, working a sly subtle magic along with Ike's super-sexy vocals, and his monologue-heavy approach to popular tunes. The album features incredible remakes of pop hits "Walk On By" and "By The Time I Get To Phoenix" – both of which run for over 10 minutes, and which completely transform the songs into something way more than simple radio fodder. Also features the psychedelic soul masterpiece "Hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedalymistic", which has this crazy funky piano, and a messed-up sound that would make even George Clinton weep!

Birds Of A FeatherBirds Of A Feather – The Page One Recordings (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Page One/RPM (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $11.99
An album that's maybe best remembered for its connection with the world of the young Elton John – as the man himself plays piano on the record, and also contributed a number of songs – but a set that's also a standout achievement from sisters Doreen and Irene Chanter! The duo are British, but sing together in a way that clearly draws a lot of inspiration from southern soul – that version of the music that you'd find refracted through a British prism on records like Honky Chateau or Tumbleweed Connection – but coming through nicely in the girls' own songs too. Production is great – nicely understated, even when full – and the main focus is on the vocals, which are surprisingly soulful throughout. Titles include "Take Me To The Pilot", "Border Song", "Leaving The Ghetto", "Country Comfort", "All God's Children Got Soul", "One More Time", "Take The World", "Bad Side Of The Moon", and a cool cover of "Gimme Shelter" that's almost got a Motown vibe! CD features two bonus tracks – "Blacksmith Blues" and "Sing My Song & Pray". CD

✨✧ VariousRhythm On The Radio – Oval Records Singles 1974 to 1987 ... CD
Oval/Ace (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most unusual labels on the British scene at the end of the 70s – a small indie that first began by issuing sounds from the US, but which then went onto have a strong role in the growing new wave and Brit pop scene of the time – before moving into world music in their later years! The mix of cuts here is quite surprising at first, but soon falls into a cohesive groove – especially when Oval Records hit that point when they were becoming the farm team for acts that would break later on bigger labels – including a few entries here that might come as a real surprise! The package is very well done – the usual Ace Records sensitivity to the history behind the music – and given that Oval Records titles never got much circulation on our side of the Atlantic, the whole thing's a real revelation to American listeners like us. Titles include "Lucky Number" by Lene Lovich, "One Heart One Song" by Pete Fowler, "The Lull" by Reluctant Stereotypes, "Tell That Girl To Shut Up" by Holly & The Italians, "Rhythm On The Radio" by ABC, "Mumbo Jumbo" by Woodhead Monroe, "Don't Depend On Me" by Direct Drive, "We'll Be Together" by Bosca, "Highlife Time" by George Darko, "The Jack That House Built" by Jack N Chill, "C'Est La Danse" by African Connexion, "Brickyard Blues" by Helen Shapiro, "I'm On A Rocket" by Harry Kakoulli, "English Guns" by Airstrip 1, "Don't Be Mistaken" by First Light, and "Hippy Street" by Local Heroes SW9.

Dave Barker with The UpsettersPrisoner Of Love (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
An album with one of the most classic Trojan Records covers from the early days – and some of the greatest music on the label as well! Soulful singer Dave Barker gets backing here from Lee Perry's Upsetters – all on a nicely stripped-down album that features Scratch himself on production – ensuring a strong edge to the groove! Dave's style has a nice sense of variety – sometimes sweetly heartbreaking, other times screaming with a very raw sense of energy – at a level that maybe gives the whole album more dynamic vocal range than a James Brown album! Titles include the classic "Shocks Of Mighty" and "Prisoner Of Love", plus "My Cup", "Runaway Child", "Never Before", "The Same Game", "Build My Whole World Around You", and "Skanky Children". LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownSoul Pride – The Instrumentals 1960 to 1969 ... CD
Polydor, 1960s. Used 2CDs ... $42.99
What could be greater – a whole box set of James Brown instrumentals from the 60s, with great notes, a killer selection of tracks, and even some previously unissued material! The package is a dream come true – great not only for beginners, but also for collectors like us, as it pulls together some sublime non-vocal numbers from rare LPs and singles, improves the sound a lot more from the original wax, and throws in the kind of work that you'd only find in the vaults of King Records! The music is a mix of soul jazz, organ wailers, and early funk recorded with the pre-JB's group that included Pee Wee Ellis. Titles include "Mashed Potatoes 66", "Sudsy", "Soul Pride (parts 1 & 2)", "Go On Now", "Gittin A Little Hipper", "The King", "Top of The Stack", "Devil's Den (live)", "Fat Bag", "Jabo", "New Breed", "Soul Food (parts 1 & 2)", "The Scratch", "Suds", "Tighten Up (live)", "Come On In The House", "Lowdown Popcorn (buttered version)", and the original "tambourine mix" of "Funky Drummer"!

Bulk 7" SinglesRandom Bulk 7" Singles – At Least 200 Records ... 7-inch
Good ... $4.99
A completely random assortment of 7" records – some in good shape, some totally beat up! We make these boxes at random, and seal them tightly – and even we don't know what's in them. Keep in mind that this vinyl has been through the regular racks – and the Bargain Basement – and some of it might have defects, most are not in sleeves, but given the 45rpm format, they can often play surprisingly well, even if they're a bit beat up. We stuff the box with at least 200 singles – but if there's more room, you'll get more too. Think of the contents as "raw material" or "space fillers" – vinyl to be used for projects, decorations, or even things like art installations or set dressing. At less than a nickel a record, the price is certainly right! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Maynard FergusonPrimal Scream ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the funkiest records ever from Maynard Ferguson – the climax of a great run of bigger group grooves in the 70s! The record's a tight batch of groovers, with production and keyboards by Bob James – and the whole thing's a mixture of big band funk and electronics that's simply out of this world! Side one kicks off with two massive numbers – the Arp-heavy "Cheshire Cat Walk", and the Kool & The Gang-ish "Primal Scream" – and both cuts are quite long, with loads of cool instrumental effects. Side two is a bit softer, but it does include a long keyboard groover called "Swamp". CD

Karin Krog & Dexter GordonSome Other Spring – Blues & Ballads ... CD
Meantime (Norway), 1970. New Copy ... $16.99
The icy voice of Norwegian singer Karin Krog is a perfect match for Dexter's deep soulful saxophone, and the two of them perform wonderfully together in this rare set of tracks recorded in 1970 with Kenny Drew on piano and Niel Henning Orsted-Peterson on bass. Krog has always been tremendously respectful of the players that she records with, and unlike other jazz vocal recordings, where the soloists take back seat to the singer, her recordings have them coming out front, and really sharing the spotlight – both in solo space, and in the interplay between the singer and musicians. Tracks include "Blue Eyes", "How Insensitive", "Some Other Spring", "Blue Monk", and her "Tribute To Jimmy Scott". CD

Prince Lasha EnsembleInsight ... CD
Columbia/Dusty Groove, 1966. New Copy ... $7.99 12.98
Tremendous work from the legendary Prince Lasha – a rare UK-only date from 1966 – and one that has the reedman working away from more familiar contemporaries like Sonny Simmons and Eric Dolphy! The approach on this session is very unique – as Lasha includes harp with the instrumentation, played by David Snell in a style that's right up there with Dorothy Ashby's best jazz work. Pianist Stan Tracey is also on board – playing beautiful notes that have a sharp modern edge, while still falling on the inside of the spectrum – and Lasha himself is especially great – blowing plastic alto sax and wooden flute, both of which have a slightly offbeat sound – but one that's surprisingly warm, which makes the album one of his most sensitive and soulful sessions ever! The tunes are a mix of standards and originals – and there's a wonderful sense of balance here – sounds that are sometimes more inside than other records from Lasha, but which have a really Dolphy-like sense of expression – right at home amidst a wider history of jazz, yet also reaching for new ideas at the same time. Pure genius throughout, and a record that was never made available to audiences in the US. Titles include "Nuttin Out Jones", "Impressions Of Eric Dolphy", "Out Of Nowhere", "Just Friends", "Body & Soul", and "Everything Happens To Me". CD

Prini LorenzPrini Lorenz ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1964. New Copy ... $16.99
A romping little record from the Jovem Guarda years in Brazil – a time when that country was strongly embracing American rock in all its 60s styles – and turning out groovy little records like this! Prini Lorenz works before a live crowd here – in this mix of mod elements that almost feels a lot like some of the bigger Sunset Strip live dates from the same time – particularly with the upbeat vibe of albums by Trini Lopez or Johnny Rivers! But there's also a sound here that's a lot cooler than both of their work – maybe because Prini's got this cool sort of accent on his English language vocals – but also because the combo is pretty lively throughout, and seems to turn all sorts of different tunes into upbeat stompers. Titles include "Like A Baby", "Cielito Lindo", "La Bamba", "Lonesome Traveler", "America", "Gotta Travel On", and "I Want To Hold Your Hand". CD

Prince Phillip MitchellTop Of The Line ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Very Good ... $14.99
A classic set of smooth 70s soul from an under-recognized genius! Phillip Mitchell is a bit like his Atlantic Records contemporary Sam Dees – in that he wrote a lot of material for other singers, recorded a handful of singles, and worked mostly in the southern scene – but he also had a sophisticated, modern style that sounded a lot more like work coming out of New York, Philly, or Chicago. This lost album for Atlantic is a great example of that fact – as it was recorded at Muscle Shoals, but also features some Philly elements too – creating a great mix of modes that's wonderfully unique! There's a feel here that's just like some of the best work from Leroy Hutson, Johnny Bristol, or Leon Ware at the same time – a majestic, mature approach to soul that's simply tremendous. Titles include "In Between Lovers", "Top Of The Line", "I'm So Happy", "Let's Get Wet", "Paying The Price", and "If It Ain't Love It'll Go Away". LP, Vinyl record album

PrinceParade ... LP
Paisley Park, 1986. Very Good- Gatefold ... $11.99
Prince in a grand groove – really hitting a new level of funk with a razor-sharp edge – and even blowing away some of his work on previous records! The record's a soundtrack for a film – Under The Cherry Moon – and although that movie never had the success of Purple Rain, we actually think it left behind an even stronger musical legacy – one that has Prince finding even more of a funky voice than before, with so many wonderfully freaky twists and turns! The music never got the showcase it might have deserved, because of the failure of the film – but it's one of our favorite Prince albums ever, and includes the massively funky "Kiss", the closest Prince ever got to James Brown, The whole album's got some great sweeping, pop psyche orchestral arrangements by Clare Fischer – and titles include "Christopher Tracey's Parade", "I Wonder U", "Under The Cherry Moon", "Girls & Boys", and "Anotherloverholenyohead".

Female Fun, 2005. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $32.99
A later career win from the unpredictable, inimitable Prince Paul – not exactly an instrumentals records, hence the deliberately spelled title – really more of leftfield hip hop beat suite with plenty of vocal samples and a few high caliber guest appearances! Paul's styles here rarely stray from blueprint hip hop template – but has some trippy passages in which he plays his own instruments and samples his own damn self – with appearances by previous collaborators Steinski and MC Paul Barman. Tracks include "MVU" (Acts 1, 2, 3 and Final Act), "It's A Stick Up!", "Flattery", "My Friend The Popmaster", "Yes, I Do Love Them Ho's!", "I Want You (I'm An 80s Man)", "Gangsta's My Style", "And The Winner Is?", "The Night My Girlfriend Left Me", "Think Or Die" and more. This 2017 limited reissue includes the previously unreleased "Indiscretion". LP, Vinyl record album
