Trojan, 1960s/1970s. Used ... $14.99
Not just a best of the Heptones, but a collection of the music that would provide the template for so many rhythms throughout the history of reggae.

Little BrotherChittlin Circuit 1.5 – Unreleased Tracks, B-Sides & Remixes ... CD
Fastlife, 2005. Used ... $7.99
A tasty helping of material from Justus League flagship Little Brother – who lit the underground ablaze a couple years ago with their debut on ABB – and hope to do the same in '05 when the Minstrel Show drops on Atlantic! Chitlin Circuit features unreleased tracks, remixes and b-sides – largely produced by 9th Wonder (natch) and Khrysis, with some guest turns by Nicolay and Young Guru. There's some damn strong s**t here – featuring the crew's signature soulful and string-laden funk production – with the tougher wordplay they've been rockin' in the couple of years since The Listening! 18 tracks in all: "War", "Third Party" feat Joe Scudda, "Honorable" feat Chaundon, "Yo-Yo (rmx)", "Nighttime Maneuvers" (rmx), "Altitudes", "Welcome To Durham" featuring Big Daddy Kane, "Flash And Flare" feat LEGACY, "Take It There", "The Beginning" feat Yahzarah and more!

VariousLegendary Wild Rockers – A Collection Ofd Rare, Rockabilly, Surf & Exotica – Compiled By Keb Darge & Little Edith ... LP
BBE (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
Seedy little rockabilly burners, rumblingly raucous rhythm & blues firebombs, bleary-eyed sax stormers and echoey guitar exotica compiled by Keb Darge & Little Edith – raw gutbuckety groovers from the late 50s & early 60s! Legendary Wild Rockers gets extra points from us on a couple of levels. The title starts with the word "Legendary" – but it's NOT filled with the likely suspects – it's got great stuff by Darrel Rhodes, The Moonlighters, The Valentines, Sonee West, The Gee Cees, Kenny Smith, The Reekers, The Carnations and more that we don't see enough of. It's also great for the way it demonstrates the far-reaching taste of the compilers – and it's simply a lot fun! 20 tracks in all: "Prissy Missy" by Dale McBride, "Tornado" by The Jiants, "Flipsville" by Stormy Gale, "That's It Man" by The Valentines, "Scorpion" by The Carnations, "The Goo Goo Muck" by Ronnie Cook & The Gaylads, "The Itch" by Carle Cherry, "I'm So Lonesome Baby" by Kenny Smith, "Talk About A Party" by Boogaloo And His Gallant Crew, "That's It Man" by The Valentines and more.

✨✧ VariousMighty Super Funk – Rare 45s & Undiscovered Masters 1967 to 1978 – Super Funk Vol 6 ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99
Our favorite kind of funk is Super Funk – and this fab entry to the long-running series definitely keeps up the groove! As before, there's plenty of rare tracks here – most pulled from obscure singles of late 60s/early 70s vintage – and some even from rare studio tapes that were never issued at the time! Most tracks are short, with a nicely gritty groove – the kind of funky 45 madness that will always keep us digging for rare 7" singles – put together by the BGP crew with a real understanding of the groove! There's some especially nice female singers in the mix – almost creating a mini Sister Funk focus on the package – but there's also great guy singers and groups too. 20 tracks in all – with cuts that include "The Sneak" by The Douzer, "Queen Of Losers" by Eleanor Rigby, "Groovy Baby" by Kim Tamanga, "It's Mookie Time" by Cleveland Eaton & The Kats, "Party Time" by James Carpenter, "Moving Woman" by 87th Off Broadway, "Bad Bad Woman (part 1)" by Marie Franklin, "He Say She Say" by Chet Ivey, "Cold Sweat" by Julio Zavalla, "Shakin Up The Nation" by The Radiations, "One Sweet Song" by Gloria Lucas, and "I'm Moving Home" by Mary Alice McCall.

Bruce JohnstonSurfers' Pajama Party ... CD
Del-Fi/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... On July 1, 2015
A pre-Beach Boys gem from Bruce Johnston – and definitely the party promised in the title! We're not sure about the pajamas, though – because things are so romping, nobody's sure to get any sleep – as Johnston and crew cook things up with a great mix of garage and surf, and maybe a dose of Memphis soul too – loads of gritty guitars, rumbling rhythms, and a slightly sinister sound that hints at the changes to come on the Sunset Strip! Johnston sings a bit on the record – in a rough style that's more influenced by R&B than the sweet harmonies of his later group – and the recording has a "live in studio" quality that really keeps things on edge throughout. A surprising gem – with cuts that include "What'd I Say", "Surfer Stomp", "Ramrod", "Last Night", "Surfer's Delight", and "Mashin The Popeye". CD

✨✧ CyrkleMinx – Original Soundtrack (plus bonus tracks!) ... CD
Sundazed/Flying Dutchman, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very wild soundtrack! The film is about The Minx, a crew of lovelies trained in the art of sensual pleasure and corporate espionage – and the original music for the film, by the rock group The Cyrkle, is about as cool as you'd expect from a theme like that! Some cuts are straight trippy rock numbers – in a mode that's somewhere between the Barbarella soundtrack and work on some of the AIP soundtracks on Tower – but then there's also some cool instrumentals, with a mixture of easy instrumentation and 60s rock effects. Titles include "On The Road", "The Minx", "Nicole", "The Party", "Walter's Riff", and "The Chase". Groovy stuff – with a real sexy Euro sound at the best moments! CD features 7 bonus cuts – including "Baxter's Dangerous Game", "Terry's Escape", "Kites", "Squeeze Play", "Terry's Theme", and "Murray The Why". CD

✨✧ New HorizonsSomething New/Gonna Have Big Fun ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1983/1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 classics from New Horizons – back to back on a single CD! Something New is something great from New Horizons – the group's second album, and even tighter than the first! Roger Troutman had a very big hand in the record, lending the group some very Zapp-ish touches in their grooves – a great blend for the catchy vocals of the group, in ways that even have the mellow cuts bouncing along nicely! The basslines are tight, but never overdone – and the record's got a real sense of class and timing that takes it way past some of the overly-familiar sides of the Troutman universe. Titles include "Your Thing Is Your Thing", "Something New", "Reaching For New Horizons", "I Can't Tell You", "County Line", and "Your Thing (rap)". Gonna Have Big Fun is a bouncy bouncy gem from New Horizons – a set that's got help from Roger and all the Troutman crew, yet somehow manages to step forward strongly with its own voice as well! There's plenty of bass at the bottom of the grooves, but things are never too popping or too-tight – just relaxed, almost mellow at points, with this wonderful flow that works perfectly for the group's hip vocals. The group's got kind of a youthful approach – almost like a harmony group raised in the generation of P-Funk, with that sort of style as their main inspiration – quite different than the approach of the mellower groups of a decade before. Titles include "Big Fun", "Dance Frite", "U Can Do (Watcha Wanna)", "Love To Spend The Night", and "Get Ready Let's Party". CD

✨✧ VariousBig Break Rapper Party – Sounds Of New York Vol 1 (original pressing) ... LP
Hit Makers Of America, Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
House people and hip hoppers unite on this monster compilation featuring killer old school rap and club cuts – all produced by the legendary Peter Brown! The album is a long-lost collection of tracks that features 7 stunning groovers – some with a great spacey club sound, others with a spare old school breakbeat groove. There's 3 vocal hip hop cuts – "Woody Rap" by Woody Wood & The Wood Crew, "Scoopy Rap" by Scoopy, and "Family Rap" by Family. And there's 2 more funky breakdown tracks, both ripe for sampling and mixing – "Johnson Product" by Johnson Jumping and "Patty Duke" by Cloud One. The set's capped off by the beautiful "Dance Freak" by Chain Reaction and "Hook On Your Line" by LJ Waiters – both ultra-cool club cuts, with some great spacey keyboards! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing in a white cover, with light wear and a small stain on front.)

✨✧ James LastBeachparty (4CD set) ... CD
Polydor (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy 4 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Seven albums on four CDs – each of them a sunny sort of groove party from German Maestro James Last! Last had already been turning out lots of instrumental pop for the German scene in the 60s – but he reinvented his sound a bit with these classic Beachparty records from the early 70s – going for a groove that's upbeat and swinging, still with some of the brassy punch of before – but also adding in more tropical elements on percussion, and very effectively using a mixed male/female vocal group to add lyrics to the tunes! The singers are well-chosen – from British groups like Brotherhood Of Man, The Breakaways, and The Ladybirds – and vocals are all in English, with a sing-song sort of playfulness that might well be called a precursor to the sound of ABBA. And the music here is definitely in the same spirit of ABBA, too – poppy and catchy, as the Last crew take on lots of familiar hits of the day, and recast them into their own sort of groove. The 4CD set features the full albums Beachparty, vols 1 to 6 – plus the Happyning album too – a whopping 84 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ Lesley GoreCalifornia Nights (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Mercury/Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the best ever albums by Leslie Gore – full of sweet natured girl pop songcraft that's on par with her biggest hit singles – but with an underlying sadness and overall emotional depth that's underappreciated to this day! It might not be as monumental as, say Pet Sounds, but we truly don't understand how the mix of sugar sweet songs and genuinely resonant emotion here never got the critical props it deserves. That's OK – WE get it, and we know you will, too! Production by Bob Crewe and arrangements by Jack Nitzsche – and titles include "California Nights", "Treat Me Like A Lady", "Bad", "I'm Going Out (The Same Way I Came In)", "Maybe Now", "Love Goes On Forever", "Off And Running", "Lilacs And Violets", "The Bubble Broke" and "Cry Like A Baby". This great Ace CD version goes way above the call of duty, with huge number of bonus tracks culled from her previous couple of LPs and rarities from the same mid 60s period – 15 of them, adding up to 25 tracks in all! Bonus tracks include "My Town, My Guy And Me", "Let Me Dream", "Start The Party Again", "I Just Can't Get Enough Of You", "I Can Tell", "That's What I'll Do", "Happiness Is Just Around The Corner", "Hold Me Tight" and more.

VariousMood Mosaic Vol 1 – The Haschish Party ... CD
Partners In Crime (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
A wonderfully groovy set – every bit as great as you might guess from the title and the cover – and the very first installment in the now-legendary Mood Mosaic series! The set's one of the few to bring together tunes from the groovier side of the spectrum at the end of the 60s – work from British, French, American, and German sources – all awash in a great blend of funky, easy, and pop-oriented modes! There's a nicely trippy feel throughout – and titles include "Hascisch Party" by George Garvarenz, "Kiss This" by Claude Denjean, "Acka Raga" by Shocking Blue, "Mas Que Nada" by Luiz Enriquez, "En Melody" by Serge Gainsbourg, "Love For Sale" by Marian McPartland, "Batucada" by Phil Crewe, "Marins Armins Amant Ou Maris" by Michel Legrand, and "Sitar Beat" by Klaus Doldinger.

✨✧ VariousPopsters – They Tried To Rock Vol 4 ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very cool collection from the early years of rock and roll – featuring work by an assortment of mainstream pop artists who were very quick to jump on the bandwagon of the new music! The styles here aren't just boring pop attempts to rehash rock, but also show a strong current of R&B at play as well – the kind of sounds that jump blues and other postwar styles had already brought to the mainstream – served up almost in a post-swing mode, with a cool mix of jazzy inflections and electrified instrumentation that's almost a precursor for the sound of popcorn soul! Most tracks are in an upbeat, swinging mode – one that's equally pleasing if you like crossover country from the time, or some of the more playful modes from pop singers too – all with a much wider range than you'd expect from the title and cover. As with other volumes, the notes are great, as is the track selection – and this fourth volume features 33 tracks that include "See Saw" by Don Cornell, "Band Of Gold" by Don Cherry, "Rock Love" by The Fontaine Sisters, "Fujiyama Mama" by Eileen Barton, "Teardrops From My Eyes" by The Hilltoppers, "Lovey Dovey" by Ella Mae Morse, "Bo Diddley" by Jean Dinning, "Susie Q" by The Crewcuts, "Rockabilly Party" by Hugo & Luigi, and "Flip Flop & Fly" by Johnny Ray.
