Cannonball Adderley QuintetHappy People ... LP
Capitol, 1972. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A really unique little album from Cannonball's all-great late years at Capitol – a session that features some strong influences from Brazilian music – "The Happy People" – and production from the legendary David Axelrod! The mix makes for a really unique little record – a set that isn't really bossa, but isn't regular Cannonball funk either – kind of a special hybrid of the two! Airto plays on the set, and contributed the great groover "The Happy People" – a long bit of funky samba that features George Duke on electric piano, and percussion and vocals by Airto himself. The rest of the album's pretty darn great too – with some long tracks that have a more open-ended groove than the usual Cannon funk – featuring more piano by Duke, percussion by Airto and King Errison, cornet by Nat Adderley, and guitar by David T Walker. Other titles include "Ela", "Maria Tres Filhos", and "Savior" – and the album was recorded live, with a very lively feel! LP, Vinyl record album

Black NastyTalking To The People (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Enterprise/4 Men With Beards, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
Excellent heavy funk from Stax! Black Nasty were one of the heaviest groups on the label – with a rock-solid guitar-based groove that went even farther than the Bar-Kays, who were no slouch in the guitar department themselves! The grooves are all slow to midtempo, with the band coming down hard on the downbeats, jamming away in a style that sounds more like heavy Detroit Westbound than sweetly soulful Memphis. Most all cuts have vocals – sung in a shouting style by the band that works well with the tripped-out hooks of the songs. This was the only album the band ever cut, but it's become a fast favorite among those who like their funk raw. Tracks include "We're Doin Our Thing", "Rushin Sea", "Booger The Hooker", "Black Nasty Boogie", "Nasty Soul", and "Getting Funky Round Here". LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie ByrdBlues For Night People ... LP
Savoy, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $6.99
One of the earthiest albums ever cut by guitarist Charlie Byrd – a session that predates his better-known sides on Riverside and Columbia, and which definitely earns the "blues" in the title! Byrd's working here with his familiar trio of Keeter Betts on bass and Gus Johnson on drums – playing acoustic guitar, but in a way that's nicely laidback, and quite open overall – almost like Tiny Grimes, but a bit less hard-edged overall. Titles include the "Blues For Night People" suite on side one, plus "Blues My Naughtie Sweetie Taught Me", "Blue Prelude", and "Jive At Five". LP, Vinyl record album

Chi-Lites(For God's Sake) Give More Power To The People ... LP
Brunswick, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Seminal work from one of the 70s greatest groups! The band had always been great at love songs and uptempo numbers – but this record has them moving into more righteous area, picking up on some of the more socially conscious soul of their generation that had been working its way up the charts. The album features excellent production by Chi-Lite Eugene Record, who also wrote a lot of the material – plus arrangements by Tom Tom and Sonny Sanders. Great stuff all around, with the righteous social tunes "(For God's Sake) Give More Power to The People", "Trouble's A Comin", and "We Are Neighbors" – plus classic love songs "Have You Seen Her" and "Love Uprising", which are still kind of the band's strongest point. Loads more great stuff on this one, the album that helped the second wave of Chicago soul break out into the international market! LP, Vinyl record album

Citrus SunPeople Of Tomorrow ... CD
Dome (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $16.99
A really sweet set from this Incognito side project – a group who are even jazzier than usual work from Bluey and crew! The album's mostly instrumental – save for some great guest vocals from Valerie Etienne – and the focus is on longer solos on keyboards, guitar, and trumpet – all spun out over the kind of classic grooves you'd expect from Incognito! Think of the record as a jazz fusion project from the late 70s, with some R&B undercurrents – just the kind of set that only a rare few like Bluey could do so well. Valerie sings on a great cover of Terry Callier's "What Color Is Love", and the album also features an instrumental take on "What's Going On", plus the tracks "Yesterday Detroit", "Cooking With Walter", "Tonight We Dance", "Mais Uma Vez", and "People Of Tomorrow".

Dixon BrothersBlessing To The People – Complete Recordings 1936 to 1938 (4CD set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 30s. New Copy 4CD & Book ... $95.99 114.99
A treasure trove of wonderful work from The Dixon Brothers – a North Carolina duo who were to their generation what the Louvin Brothers were to the late 50s! In fact, the pair were a key precursor to so many other acts to come – in the way they mixed together tragic songs, gospel, social commentary, and other themes – all in a pre-country style that was very compelling work in the 30s hillbilly generation. The duo have been reissued over the years, but never in a manner this great – a lavish 4CD set that brings together all of their RCA recordings from the 30s, plus later solo recordings by Dorsey Dixon – all with a stunning heavy hardcover book that's filled with notes, images, and lots of other information on the Dixon Brothers. Bear Family at its best! CD

Fatback BandPeople Music ... LP
Perception, 1973. Very Good ... $69.99
One of the greatest funk albums ever! This is the great LP of hard funky cuts that perfectly sums up the Fatback style that you've heard so much about – but which you can't find on much of their late 70s albums! The whole album is filled to the brim with loads of great hard funk cuts, with cool crowd noises and a non-stop groove all the way through. Monster cuts, including "Nija Walk", "Fatbackin", "Soul March", "Soul Man", "Kiba", "Clap Your Hands", and lots more. LP, Vinyl record album
(NOTE: One label is pressed into the vinyl – covering 3 of the 4 tracks on side 2. You might be able to remove it, but we didn't try. Side 1 and the rest of the package is great – really almost NM-.)

Friends Of DistinctionFriends & People ... LP
RCA, 1971. Sealed ... $9.99
One of the stranger albums by the Friends of Distinction – with some super-baroque arrangements by Jerry Peters that seem to be trying to push the group past the bouncy formula of their earlier hits. The style should work, especially because Peters is always such a rich talent for more complicated soul work – but the female lead vocals in the group kind of get all flowery in the worst moments, wrecking the record a bit. Still, there are a few nice numbers that have a tight early 70s pop soul groove – and these let the group still show their strength at putting over a regular soul track. Titles include "Dying To Live", "Down I Go", "Let Me Be", "I Need You", "Jenny Wants To Know", and the extended track "It's Time To See Each Other". LP, Vinyl record album

Lee HazlewoodNSVIPs – Not So Very Important People (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise/1972, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99 24.98
A pivotal record in the career of the great Lee Hazlewood – one that presents his personal with all its wit and warmth, yet also lets Lee take on some more mature topics as well! Most of the tunes start in the same sort of storytelling style as the album Trouble Is A Lonesome Town – but Hazlewood's a lot more tongue-in-cheek with his presentation, and directs the lyrics towards much more biting commentary – not entirely politically progressive, but definitely a larger sense of society beyond the individual. The cast of characters spin out wonderfully – the NSVIPS promised in the title – but they also tie together to present this portrait of an America just waking up in the mid 60s – able to see itself more clearly, yet without any of the overpowering emotions in years to come. That balance is Hazlewood's really special contribution to music at this point – and is given great shape here with help in the studio from Reprise Records whiz kid Jimmy Bowen. Titles include "Have You Made Any New Bombs Today", "I Ain't Gonna Be", "I Might Break Even", "Go Die Big City", "I Had A Friend", and "Everybody Calls Me Something". LP, Vinyl record album
