Derrick Harriott & OthersDerrick Harriott – Reggae, Funk, & Soul 1969 To 1975 ... LP
Dub Store (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $31.99 32.99
The title certainly gets it right – as Derrick Harriott serves up a wonderful mix of sounds that owes plenty to American funk and soul of the early 70s – some cool Kingston covers of famous US tunes, and some other originals that are equally groovy overall! The set's one of the best that we've ever heard from the Dub Store label – and almost has a Soul Jazz level of track selection – really wonderful work that either features Derrick in the lead, or working with some hip contemporaries, in a groove that's totally great – neither straight reggae, but also quite far from more familiar funk and soul too. Titles include "Black Moses" by The Preacher, "Tougher Than Tough" by I Roy, "Brown Baby" by Derrick Harriott, "Hell Below" by Crystal Generation, "Going Back Home" by The Chosen Few, "Psychedelic Train" by Derrick Harriott, "Slippery" by Karl Bryan & The Crystalites, "Home Sweet Home" by Bongo Herman & Les, "Rescue The Children" by Junior Murvin, "Phoenix" by Noel Brown, "People Make The World Go Round" by The Chosen Few, and "Message From A Black Man" by Derrick Harriott.

Jimmy HeathThumper ... LP
Riverside, 1959. Very Good- ... $24.99
A definite thumper from the young Jimmy Heath – proof that he was always one of the hippest cats in his scene, even at the start! The record's ostensibly a blowing session with a handful of like-minded hardboppers from the late 50s – but as usual for Heath, the overall sound is something deeper in the end – way more than just some simple solo moments over straight rhythms, and instead a record that really takes off with a well-arranged sense of energy! Even at this early date, Jimmy's showing a great talent for putting a group together – and he works the sextet with an feeling that hints strongly at soul jazz modes to emerge in the 60s – especially the deeper-toned styles of some of the groups in which Heath would work as a sideman later on in the decade. Players here include Nat Adderley on cornet, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Albert Tootie Heath on drums – but 2 of the album's tracks feature Jimmy alone with the rhythm section. Titles include "For Minors Only", "Who Needs It?", "Don't You Know I Care", "Two Tees", "The Thumper", "Newkeep", "For All We Know", "I Can Make You Love Me", and "Nice People".

Julius HemphillCoon Bid'ness ... LP
Arista/Freedom, 1972. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Arista Freedom release of 2 different sessions by Julius Hemphill – one from 1975, with Arthur Blythe, Hamiet Bluiett, and Abdul Wadud; the other from 1972, with Bluiett, Wadud, and Baikida Carroll. The 1972 session's a bit more interesting, and was recorded in St. Louis by Oliver Sain (of all people!). It's one long track entitled "The Hard Blues", and has an excellent mix of styles, emotions, and voices – with all the players getting in some beautiful solo moments. The 1975 session's not too bad either, but it's just a little too self-consciously out, and lacks the warmth of the other piece. LP, Vinyl record album

HesitationsSolid Gold ... LP
Kapp, 1968. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Although the Hesitations themselves never struck gold, they were a great lost soul group who here do some excellent versions of bigger hits on the charts. The band had already scored nicely with their versions of hits like "Born Free" and "The Impossible Dream" – and on this album, they do nice takes of "Whiter Shade Of Pale", "Stay In My Corner", "Groovin", "Human", "Honey", "People Got To Be Free", and "Brown Eyed Woman", which they re-title "Blue Eyed Woman". Arrangements and instrumentation by Johnny Pate, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Billie Holiday5 Original Albums (Lady Sings The Blues/Body & Soul/Songs For Distingue Lovers/Stay With Me/All Or Nothing At All) (5CD set) ... CD
Verve (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy 5 CDs ... $14.99
5 late albums from Billie Holiday – all collected in one sweet set, in tiny LP-styled sleeves, too! First up is Lady Sings The Blues – possibly one of the most essential Billie Holiday albums for Verve – a set that carries the same title as her famous autobiography, and which also features many key numbers from her songbook at the time! The feel here is quite easygoing and relaxed – with small group backing behind Billie's vocals, which themselves are recorded cleanly and clearly throughout. One side features backing by a combo that includes Wynton Kelly on piano, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Charlie Shavers on trumpet, and Paul Quinichette on tenor – and the other features a group that includes Bobby Tucker on piano, Charlie Shavers on trumpet, Barney Kessel on guitar, and the great Willie Smith on alto sax. Titles include plenty of classics – including "God Bless The Child", "Strange Fruit", "Lady Sings The Blues", "No Good Man", "Good Morning Heartache", "I Must Have That Man", and "Trav'lin' Light". Body & Soul is a great late small combo session by Billie – recorded in Hollywood with a group that includes Harry Edison, Ben Webster, Jimmy Rowles, Barney Kessel, Red Mitchell, and Alvin Stoller. The songs are short and swinging – with Billie at the top of her form on familiar standards like "Comes Love", "Darn That Dream", "Body & Soul", "They Can't Take That Away From Me", and "Embraceable You". A few tracks crack the 5 minute mark, making for some nice solos from Webster and Edison! Songs For Distingue Lovers is classic Verve work by Billie – and an album that probably brought the word "distingue" into the vocabulary of more people than any other use! (And in fact, probably also caused a lot more trouble with mispronunciation than any other Billie Holiday album title!) The tracks are slightly longer than usual – familiar songs like "Day In Day Out", "Stars Fell On Alabama", "A Foggy Day", and "Just One Of Those Things" – all given the amazing Holiday take, in a way that opens them up with more emotion than you might have thought possible! On Stay With Me, Billie sings in a warm relaxed setting, with great small combo backing, and piano by Mal Waldron. The record is one of the best we could recommend on the label – and it includes lots of nice tracks like "Everything Happens To Me", "I Wished On The Moon", and "Say It Isn't So". All Or Nothing At All is beautiful Billie from the last years of her life. The material was recorded in 1956 and 1957 in Hollywood, featuring Barney Kessel, Ben Wesbster, Harry Edison, and Jimmy Rowles – all grooving nicely in small group formation. The tracks have a wonderfully fragile quality – and although standards, are still some of Billie's nicest work for Verve. Titles include "April In Paris", "All Or Nothing At All", "We'll Be Together Again", and "But Not For Me". Great David Stone Martin cover, too! CD

✨✧ Billie HolidayBillie Holiday – Remixed & Reimagined ... CD
Legacy, 2007. Used ... $5.99
Billie Holiday's probably reimagined here more than she's remixed – as most of the tracks are heavy on contemporary beats and breaks first, and tend to focus on the vocals second! Billie's older recordings are dropped into the mix to provide a bit of older flavor – sometimes used quite sparingly, sometimes a bit more in the spirit of the original songs – but still usually in a way that has the remixer emerg as the main star on each track. 14 tracks in all and titles include "All Of Me (Charles Feelgood & Gil rmx)", "Glad To Be Unhappy (DJ Logic rmx)", "Billie's Blues (Daniel Y rmx)", "You're So Desirable (Sunday People rmx)", "I Hear Music (Swingsett & Takuya's Mighty Fine rmx)", "Spreadin Rhythm Around (Lady Bug vs Lady Day RR rmx)", and "Travlin All Alone (Nickodemus & Zeb rmx)".

Freddie HubbardPolar AC (Japanese pressing) ... CD
CTI (Japan), 1975. Used ... $9.99
Warm and wonderful work from Freddie Hubbard – a killer of an album recorded for CTI, and one of his most soulful efforts for the label! The album's got a bit more of a human heart than some of the more cosmic sessions Freddie cut at the time – a bit more contemplative and introspective, but no less open-minded and electrically charged. The assortment of players is all top-shelf – with Billy Cobham, Airto, Lennie White, George Cables, Hubert Laws, and George Benson all backing Freddie up on the set – and titles include a great take on "People Make the World Go Round", plus "Naturally", and "Son of Sky Dive", which grooves just like its papa!

Human LeagueAnthology – A Very British Synthesizer Group ... CD
Virgin, Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.98
Way more than just another anthology – as this 2CD collection features a great range of sounds from these legendary synth pop legends – plus some rare mixes and unusual versions too! The collection definitely includes those early 80s singles that made Human League so great – but there's also some of their weird early analogue electronics, too – plus some later tracks that are surprisingly great, and which appear here on CD format for the first time ever – really rounding out the 30 track package in a great way! Titles include "The Dignity Of Labour (part 3)", "Empire State Human", "Fascination (ext version)", "Lebanon (single)", "Hello Louise (DJ edit)", "Sound Of The Crowd (inst)", "Hard Times", "Nightclubbing", "Boys & Girls", "Night People (radio edit)", "Heart Like A Wheel (William Orbit rmx)", "Life On Your Own", "Human (ext version)", "I Need Your Loving (DJ edit)", "Filling Up With Heaven", "Live Is All That Matters (edit)", "Never Let Me Go", "Sky (radio edit)", "Night People (radio)", "Mirror Man", "You Remind Me Of Gold", "Open Your Heart", and of course, "Don't You Want Me".

Illa JIlla J ... CD
Bastard Jazz, 2015. New Copy ... $13.99
Detroit independent hip hop veteran Illa J takes his greatest creative leap yet – moving to the Bastard Jazz label for this solid, perhap appropriately self-titled set – as he really seems to be repping his own vibe here! Earlier on, he proved a capable torch carrier for his brother J Dilla's legacy, and a fine collaborator, with Frank Nitt, Slum Village, etc. Here he's working with Canadian producers Potatohead People, and shows a wider range of stylistic impulses than we've ever heard from him – jumping from timeless soulful hip hop, to some avant soul touches we didn't expect, even doing some singing – and he really pulls it off! Includes "She Burned My Art" with Moka Only, "Cannonball", "Strippers", "All Good Pt 2" with Moka Only & Ivan Ave, "Perfect Game", "Never Left", "Sunflower" feat Allie, "Universe" and more. CD

Isley BrothersHarvest For The World ... LP
T Neck, 1976. Very Good Gatefold ... $3.99
Fantastic Isleys from the mid-70s! The record has the group dropping their heavy funk style (which was sounding a bit tired by this point), and picking up a strident soul groove that buoyed their tracks with a spiritual sound that reminds us of some of the best moments from the Brother Brother Brother album! This one includes the incredible song "Harvest For The World", one of the most anthemic soul songs of the 70s – and a monster groover that mixes message-driven vocals with some tight guitar work. Other tracks include "You Still Feel the Need", "Let Me Down Easy", and "People of Today" – and the whole album's one of the group's best from the 70s! LP, Vinyl record album

Isley Jasper IsleyCaravan Of Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
CBS/FTG, 1985. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
A huge 80s moment for the Isley Brothers empire – a set that has Ernie and Marvin Isley stepping away from the main group with Chris Jasper – to reinvent their sound for the 80s! The record still has all the slinky soul and upbeat funk of the Isley material from the late 70s – but also pushes the groove in a slightly different way – often using leaner arrangements that are focused on beats, basslines, and keyboards – which only seem to make the warm vocals of the trio sound even more seductive in the end! There's that subtle sense of majesty that the group always had in their music at their height – an influence that might well come from the presence of Jasper – and the album's noteworthy for the wonderful "Caravan Of Love", a soulful spiritual tune that's kind of to 80s soul what The Impressions "People Get Ready" was to 60s soul! The album's got a good mellow harmony sound, and other titles include "Liberation", "I Can Hardly Wait", "Insatiable Woman", and "If You Believe In Love". CD features bonus tracks – "Caravan Of Love (ext single mix)" and "Insatiable Woman (12" version)". CD

It's Psychedelic Baby!Issue 2 – 2015 ... Magazine
Guerssen (Spain), 2016. New Copy ... $10.99
If the title doesn't give it away, the contents certainly do – a heady helping of articles that definitely live up to the psychedelic promise on the cover! The magazine really digs deep – way more so than other psych publications we've seen – and the scope of material here is pretty obscure, and very well-covered – with articles on Bob Martin, Dana Westover, David Bixby, Michael Yonkers, William Nowick, Merrell Fankhauser, The Tree People, and other talents from the psychedelic underground – served up alongside a host of reviews – both of vintage psych titles and some contemporary gems too!

Classic Delmark material from one of the core members of the Art Ensemble Of Chicago. Jarman leads a group that includes other AACM players like Fred Anderson, Thurman Barker, and Muhal Richard Abrams. Sherri Scott sings a bit, and the whole record has the spare feeling of some of the Art Ensemble material from the time, like People In Sorrow. 3 long tracks: "As If It Were The Seasons", "Song To Make The Sun Come Up", and "Song For Christopher".

JBsGroove Machine ... CD
TK/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $23.99
A rock-solid groove machine from The JBs – an album that's a bit different than their earlier sides for People Records, yet still pretty wonderful overall! The approach is more club than funk – yet the grooves are still mostly live ensemble playing – kind of a ratcheted-up version of the JBs' style, and very similar to the groove that James Brown himself was hitting at the end of the 70s! Given the already-sharp sound of the group, you can bet that the music here is light years better than most other studio disco groups of the period – and although James Brown produced, most of the tracks are instrumental – save for one with vocals by Maxxi. Titles include "Rock", "Georgia Peach Disco", "Just Wanna Make You Dance", "Rock Disco #1", and "Rock Groove Machine". CD

P-Vine (Japan), 1997. Used ... $24.99
Very very very cool compilation of rare James Brown-produced singles from the People Records years, with loads of stuff that's never shown up on the other James Brown comps. Cuts include 3 tracks by Sweet Charles ("Hang Out and Hustle", "Together", "I Wont' Last a Day"), 2 by The Flames – a little known soul group that James produced ("My Lonely Hour", "Stand Up And Be Counted"), and some hard to find singles by the JBs, including their covers of "Watermelon Man" and "Backstabbers", plus a 2 part reading of "Giving Up Food for Funk", and the cuts "Everybody Got Soul" and "All Aboard the Funky Soul Train". The comp finishes off with 2 great Maceo cuts, and is an excellent package from PVine, and a must for the JB fan! CD

Steve KarmenWhat Do You Say To A Naked Lady? ... LP
United Artists, 1970. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A very strange little record – composed for a very strange film directed by Allen "Candid Camera" Funt – in which people are surprised by a nude woman, and have to react accordingly. There's a lot of tunes on here that have an almost Harper's Bizarre feel – that kind of "sweet, but dark inside" style that we love from late 60s rock albums on Warner Brothers. The mood changes from track to track, to fit the situations of the scenes – and there's plenty of great tunes on here with sweet or groovy vocals and a hip easy soft pop style. Titles include "Kids", "Too Bad You Can't Read My Mind", "Pardon Me", "Let's Get Down To It", "What Do You Say To A Naked Lady", and "Hail To Humanity". LP, Vinyl record album

Beverly KenneyBeverly Kenny Sings With Jimmy Jones & The Basie-ites ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $14.99
Bev Kenny sounds surprisingly great in this Basie-styled setting – one that has Jimmy Jones handling the keys instead of the Count – with added support from players who include Joe Newman on trumpet, Frank Wess on tenor and flute, and Freddie Green on guitar! Like most of Kenny's sessions of the 50s, there's a quality here that really goes beyond standard vocal jazz – a real feel for the material, and a relaxed command of the small combo setting that must have made Beverly a hell of an act to catch in the clubs. Her natural sweetness is a nice contrast to the deeper tones of the Basie players – and titles include "I Never Has Seen Snow", "The More I See You", "The Charm Of You", "My Kind Of Love", "Who Cares What People Say", and "Can't Get Out Of This Mood".

Kilburn & The High-RoadsHandsome (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Dawn/Cherry Red (UK), 1974/1975. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
A great CD package featuring the lost 1975 release from Kilburn & The High Road – Ian Dury's fantastic, and at the time, completely anomalous group of pub rock outcasts! The Kilburn sound is tough to describe even now – traces of Phil Spector's rock & soul, ragged 50s jazz, and drunken pub rock make up the sounds that back up Ian's wickedly dry sing-speak monologues – this clearly influenced people from Elvis Costello to Madness to who knows how many others. Ian went on to have more notoriety on the seminal Stiff Records, but this record originally released on Dawn sounds nearly as great to our ears. Oh, but to have a time machine and be able to go back and see this group in action – must've been amazing! This huge 2CD collection features the original album, rare singles and other obscure tracks – plus a full second CD that features 11 tracks with the group "In Session" at Capital Radio in 1974. Titles include "Rough Kids", "Crippled With Nerves", "Pam's Moods", "Broken Skin", "Upminster Kid", "The Badger", "Mumble Rumble & The Cocktail Rock", "The Call-Up", "Father", "Who's To Know", "Back To Blighty", "Twenty Tiny Fingers", and "Thank You Mum".
