Cody ChestnuttHeadphone Masterpiece ... CD
Ready Set Go, 2002. Used 2CDs ... $3.99
Tripped-out soul from Cody Chestnutt – a double-CD set that's an instant classic! Cody's sound is really unique – a lo-fi blend of styles that stretches back to Sly Stone and Shuggie Otis, with elements of the current Philly underground, bits of crispy hip hop production, and even some traces of early 70s underground rock . Beats are lean and messy – and Cody's voice has an honest upfront approach that really works with the lyrics, which are some of the most striking that you'll find on an album of this nature. The whole thing's got an "in the bedroom" feel that's as carefully calculated as it is casually compelling – and Cody's style really holds up, even over the course of 2 CDs! Titles include "Boylife In America", "No One Will", "Smoke & Love", "The Seed", "Magic In A Mortal Minute", "The World Is Coming To My Party", "Out Of Nowhere", and "My Women My Guitars". CD

Hee SistersDisKo Girls – The Anta Records Years Anthology 1978 to 1980 (3CD set) ... CD
Anta/Cobra Rose (Korea), Late 70s. Used 3CD ... $19.99
Get ready to discover a whole new world of disco you've never heard before – South Korean grooves from the late 70s, courtesy of the lovely Hee Sisters – a soulful trio to match the best American female dancefloor acts of the time! The Hee Sisters sing predominantly in Korean, and work in this really cool blend of Philly disco modes and some deeper East Asian pop sounds – which oddly has the tunes sparkling with a bit more feeling than you might expect, even if you can't understand the language – the kind of blue undercurrents you'd get in Japanese pop from obscure film soundtracks and sources of that nature. There's plenty of groovers mixed in with more laidback tracks – and the instrumentation often features sweet keyboards that move with the vocals like some late 70s Italian styles. And the package is great, too – a 7" square, hardcover book – filled with color pages that have vintage photos of the girls, plus notes in Korean and English, with album cover reproductions on nice heavy pages – all a bit like the Motown Singles sets issued over here. Two CDs feature vintage tracks from the girls, and one more features contemporarie remixes from Korea – showing the continued Hee Sisters influences over the years! CD

✨✧ Sonny RollinsTenor Madness (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Prestige, 1956. Used ... $6.99
A groundbreaking album from Sonny Rollins, largely for the extended track "Tenor Madness", which runs on for 13 minutes, and features him and Coltrane blowing head to head – redefining the sound of the tenor sax in jazz through the course of that amazing track! Backing is by the Red Garland/Paul Chambers/Philly Joe Jones group that backed up 'Trane on many of his Prestige sides, and they work equally well with Rollins – especially on the ballads "When your Lover Has Gone" and "My Reverie", plus the lyrical "The Most Beautiful Girl In The World".

VariousConquer The World – The Lost Soul Of Philadelphia International Records ... CD
Philadelphia International, 1970s. Used ... $5.99
Philly International, way past the hits – presented here on a special collection of key rarities from the legendary label! If you think you've heard Philly before, get ready to think again – because the tracks here are all non-iconic gems from the deeper reaches of the label – deeper soul, hipper club, and heavier funk than you might expect from the sweeter chart singles the imprint scored back in the 70s! The package is a masterpiece – way better than we might have expected, and featuring some key tracks that even we'd never heard before – more than enough to have you digging funky 45s for Philly International. Tracks include "Ghetto Woman (parts 1 & 2)" by Ruth McFadden, "Everybody Needs Good Lovin (parts 1 & 2)" by Bunny Sigler, "Days Go By" by Bobby Bennett, "It's So Wonderful" by Johnny Williams, "Makin Up Time (parts 1 & 2)" by Frankie & The Spindles, "Hard Workin Man" by Pat & The Blenders, "Theme From Five Fingers Of Death" by Bunny Sigler, "Good & Plenty" by Carolyn Crawford, "Yellow Sunshine" by Yellow Sunshine, "Darling Come Back Home" by Love Committee, and "Grasshopper" by The Soul Devalents. CD features 4 bonus tracks – "Ruby's Surprise Party" by Ruby & The Party Gang, "Stop Taking My Love" by The Mellow Moods, "Love Is Here" by The Futures, and "The Big Hurt" by People's Choice. CD

✨✧ ArtisticsBest Of The Artistics ... CD
Brunswick, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Killer work from this Chicago soul group – a set that brings together all the beautiful best the Artistics recorded for Brunswick Records! At the label, the group had that soaring, lilting vibe that virtually defined the Chicago group sound at the end of the 60s – a bit more punch than some of the east coast harmony acts, but not as tightly compressed as Detroit or Philly either. The collection's overflowing with goodness – 15 tracks in all, with titles that include "I'm Gonna Miss You", "Girl I Need You", "Hard To Carry On", "Yesterday's Girl", "Walking Tall", "The Price Of Love", "Lonely Old World", "What Happened", "When I'm Not Around", "With These Hands", "Just Another Heartache", "I Want You To Make My Life Over", and "Troubles Heartaches & Pain".

✨✧ Sonny ClarkCool Struttin' ... CD
Blue Note, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most legendary albums on Blue Note – or maybe THE most legendary albums on Blue Note – a stunning session that shows what the label was capable of when it was really hitting on all burners – from the lineup to the music to the production – and even the classic cover art on the front! The album's a crowning achievement for pianist Sonny Clark – a player who'd already brought greatness to the world before the record, but really knocks it out of the park during the session – leading a razor sharp lineup that includes Art Farmer on trumpet, Jackie McLean on alto, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – all coming together with some magic in the studio, crafting a sound that forever put Blue Note on the map! Tracks are long, open-ended, and almost effortlessly soulful – and titles include Clark's classics "Cool Struttin" and "Blue Minor", plus versions of "Sippin At Bells" and "Deep Night". Plus, this CD also adds 2 long bonus cuts – "Lover" and "Royal Flush" – both of which weren't on the original album! CD
Also available Cool Struttin' (RVG remaster edition) ... CD 6.99

✨✧ Little Anthony & The ImperialsOn A New Street/Hold On (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Avco/Soulmusic.com, 1973/1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Harmony heaven – a pair of Little Anthony & The Imperials albums together in a single set, with some sweet bonus tracks too! On A New Street is wonderful work from Little Anthony – and a great update to his smooth 60s harmony sound with The Imperials! Anthony wisely employs the use of two of 70s top harmony arrangers on the album – using Thom Bell on one side, and Teddy Randazzo on the other – both of whom really help take the group to a whole new level! The Thom Bell material fits perfectly with his work with The Stylistics from the same time, and the cuts have a wonderfully mellow east coast harmony style that's quite different than Anthony's earlier work. Teddy Randazzo does a pretty nice job, too – but with a fuller sound too, almost in a Manhattans mode that makes for a nice change from the previous fragility of Anthony's vocals. Titles include "I Don't Have Time To Worry", "That's What Love is All About", "I'm Falling In Love with You", "Heartache Never Entered My Mind", and "The Loneliest House on the Block". Also features an alternate take on "La La La At The End". Hold On has Little Anthony & The Imperials really hitting some great Philly modes – working with help from Tony Bell and Phil Hurtt, and getting lots of sweet backing from the Sigma Studio team – all in a mode that rivals some of the bigger soul group work of the 70s! The vibe's got a bit of Spinners in the mix, but still also holds on to the more fragile style that made The Imperials so great – especially on the mellower cuts, which have Anthony's voice cracking in that completely wonderful, very human way. But like Eddie Holman on Salsoul, he can also really shine on the clubbier cuts too – and the blend makes for a mighty compelling album from the group! Titles include "Hold On", "You Are The World To Me", "Promise Me", "I've Got To Let You Go", and "Back Where You Belong". CD also features some bonus cuts – "Hold On (stereo single mix)", "I've Got To Let You Go (stereo single)", "I've Got To Let You Go (stereo)", and "I've Got To Let You Go (mono short version)". CD

✨✧ Chi-LitesHappy Being Lonely/Fantastic Chi-Lites ... CD
Mercury/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1976/1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
A massive 2-fer from The Chi-Lites – 2 amazing post-Brunswick records on a single CD! Happy Being Lonely is beautiful beautiful work from The Chi-Lites – and a record that we might even say tops the best of their late Brunswick book! Despite the move from that label to Mercury, the group have a sound here that's still wonderfully fragile and harmony-focused – especially on the mellower cuts, which crackle with a sense of humanity that so many other harmony groups were losing at the time. But even the more upbeat tunes are great too – rolling along on some spacious arrangements by Tom Tom Washington, and showing that Chicago could come up with grooves to rival the sound of Philly! Titles include the great ballad "Love Can Be Hazardous", the Sam Dees number "Vanishing Love", and the titles "Don't Blame The World", "Message To The World", "Let Your Love Fall Like Rain", and "I Turn Away". The other album on the set is great too – and Fantastic Chi-Lites is right, because the group's still going strong even after their hit years on Brunswick – stepping forth with a sweet harmony sound that nicely fits the Philly arrangements they get on this set! There's a maturity here that gets past the fragile soul of earlier sets, and which has the group moving into a warmly adult mode that's a perfect shift from their more familiar hits. Includes the classic club groover "My First Mistake" – a stunning track that recalls the best work of groups like Blue Magic or Double Exposure – and other tracks include "I've Got Love On My Mind", "If I Had A Girl", "Who's In Love With Me", "Let's Touch", and "Love At Its Best".

✨✧ Phineas NewbornWorld Of Piano (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Contemporary (Japan), 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
Maybe not a "world" of piano, but a real classic from Phineas Newborn – a record that marks a harder, more soulful sound than some of his 50s work – shaking free from some of his flowery touches on the keys, and digging much deeper into the groove of his Memphis roots! The sound here is really tremendous – boldly leaping forth from the keys with a strength that's really surprising – but still sensitive enough to slide in a few more contemplative notes when the moment calls – sometimes while Newborn is still racing down the keys at breakneck speed! Rhythm on both sides is great – with Paul Chambers & Philly Joe Jones on side one, and Sam Jones and Louis Hayes on side two – and titles include "Cheryl", "Manteca", "Oleo", "Dahoud", "Cabu", and "For Carl". CD

✨✧ Tommy Stewart & OthersMake Happy Music ... CD
FTG, Late 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Killer grooves from the legendary Tommy Stewart – one of the funkiest producers on the Atlanta scene of the 70s – as you'll hear in this batch of wonderful tracks! Tommy's well-known for work under his own name – but this set also features some of his best productions for other artists too – a really unified batch of groovers that moves from mellow steppers through some tighter, more funky-based cuts too. The whole package is a delight – a look into a musical world that never got as much exposure as some of the scenes up in New York or Philly, but which certainly rivaled both of them for top-quality grooves. There's some great notes with the CD – telling the tale of Stewart's career, and that of partner Marlin McNicholls – and the package features cuts that include "Pay The Price" by Stevo, "Messin Around" by The Spirit Of Atlanta, "Que Pasa" by The Final Approach, "Big Fat Juicy Fun" by Hambone, "Let's Boogie At The Disco" by 3rd World Band, "Cream De Coco" by Disco Strut, "Fulton County Line" by Tommy Stewart, "Cosmic Funk" by Mad Dog Fire Department, "Party Night" by Stevo, "Dancing Down The Avenue" by Sherman Hunter, and the classic club cuts "Make Happy Music" and "Bump & Hustle Music" by Tommy Stewart.
