Ramsey LewisRamsey Lewis Trio In Person Vol 2 – 1965 to 1967 (Hang On Ramsey/Dancing In The Street) ... CD
Cadet/Rev-Ola (UK), 1965/1967. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A double-dose of live material from Ramsey Lewis – tracks from 2 60s classic live albums for Cadet! First up is material from the classic Hang On Ramsey – easily one of Ramsey Lewis' most successful records – featuring the hit soul jazz style that he forged with the Young/Holt rhythm combo, honed to perfection before a live crowd at The Lighthouse in Hermosa Beach. The record's a key part of Ramsey's live recorded output – showing the trio in pyrotechnic form before the kind of packed-house audiences they were playing to nightly at the time. Includes swinging versions of "Hard Day's Night", "He's A Real Gone Guy", "And I Love Her", and "Hang On Sloopy" – plus the original cut "Movin Easy". Almost even better is the material from Dancing In The Street – a late 60s groover from the second Ramsey Lewis trio – the one that features Cleveland Eaton on bass and Maurice White on drums, both doing a pretty great job of filling the spot vacated by Eldee Young and Red Holt! The album's a live one, cut in the successful mode of Ramsey's records with the Young/Holt group – mostly featuring familiar numbers transformed by the Lewis Trio's hard-grooving approach to their work! It's great to hear Maurice White in a pre-Earth Wind & Fire jazz setting – and the album's got a slightly more open sound than some of Ramsey's earlier live dates – especially on the Brazilian tinged numbers that include "Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars" and "Medley From Black Orpheus". Other tracks include "Dancing In The Street", "You Don't Know Me", and "What Now My Love". Note that the CD only features partial tracks from both albums involved. CD

Edu LoboTempo Presente ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1980/1998. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Wonderfully warm electric work from Edu Lobo – a sublime late 70s set that we'd stack right up there with our favorite albums of the time by artists like Joyce, Marcos Valle, or Joao Donato! As with all three of those artists, Edu uses some 70s electric elements to really transform his sound – but always in a way that's never commercial or slick at all – and which instead realizes this complicated jazzy vibe that comes through even better with this instrumentation than it did during the bossa nova years! Lobo's vocals have a quality that's mature, yet really personal too – and the album's a real testament to his great songwriting skills over the years – even on the few instrumental tracks. Joyce guests on one track, as does Dorival Caymmi – and the set also features some backing vocals from Boca Livre. Titles include "Tempo Presente", "Rei Morto, Rei Posto", "Quase Sempre", "Balada De Outono", and "Dono Do Lugar". CD

✨✧ VariousDore LA Soul Sides Vol 2 – 20 Years Worth Of Elusive West Coast Dancers, Sweet Soul Ballads & all Points In Between ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Loads and loads of great group soul sounds from the LA scene of the late 60s and early 70s – a mix of upbeat groovers and laidback harmony tunes that show that the west coast city was every bit as great at handling soul groups as the scenes in Detroit or Philly! Apart from The Whispers – who were the big Dore label stars at the time – many of these other acts didn't break big east of the Rockies – which makes this whole collection a real treasure trove of great discovery – stunning vocals supported by superb arrangements and production, and a selection of tracks chosen with the usual Kent Records care! There's a few solo artists on the set, too – but the main focus is on groups, and titles include "Nothing Lasts Forever" by The Natural Resources, "Getting Back Into Circulation" by The Entertainers IV, "I'm Givin You Notice Baby" by The Fidels, "I Wanna Chance" by The Vows, "I Only Cry Once A Day Now" by The Puffs, "The Girl That I Loved" by Bobby & Eddie Unlimited, "Saigon To San Francisco" by Toussaint McCall, "Just A Little Ugly" by Gail Anderson, "Wind In My Sails" by The Superbs, "I Want YoU" by Dee Torres, and "My Pillow" by The Darlings.

✨✧ VariousGilles Peterson Presents Havana Cultura – Remixed ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2010. New Copy 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful second chapter to Gilles Peterson's Havana Cultura project – one that takes all the cool contemporary cuts, and offers them up in hip remixed versions! As usual with a Peterson set like this, the remixes are often quite respectful – specially commissioned from contemporary heavyweights who Gilles has supported for years – turning their talents here to some really great Latin numbers recorded recently in Havana! All the cross-cultural influences of the originals are still nicely in place – and in fact, perhaps brought out even further, given the input from London, New York, and other global ports as part of the remixes. CD1 features the remixes – "Checkere Son (Seiji rerub)", "Miami (Edgardo El Productor En Jefe Tropicalia rmx)", "Roforofo Fight (Louie Vega's EOL mix)", "Arroz Con Pollo (Carl Cox mix)", "Afrodisia (Rainer Truby rmx)", "Think Twice (4Hero rmx)", "and La Revolucion Del Cuerpo (Skinner's Owiney Sigoma mix)". CD 2 features a special Gilles Peterson mix of all the remixes – like having a whole other album as well! CD

✨✧ VariousNew York Sound 2 ... CD
BGP (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
New York grooves from the start of the 80s – a great batch of tracks that sits nicely in the space between late 70s disco and old school hip hop! Many of these tracks are quite long – extended 12" groovers that mix electro keyboards, slapping basslines, and snapping beats with vocals that are sung, rapped, and chanted – always in a catchy groove that slinks along nicely at a midtempo pace. There's no too-fast numbers here, and the vibe is nice and laidback – one that takes full use of the space of a bigger single to let the tunes open up slowly and find the time to do their thing! Titles include "I'm The One" by Rainbow Brown, "I Had To Say It" by Millie Jackson, "King Tim III (Personality Jock)" by Fatback, "No One Can Do It" by Carol Williams, "Heobah" by Fonda Rae, "Burn Me Up" by Frisky, "Mysterious" by Twilight 22, "Magic's Message" by Mr Magic, "We Come To Jam" by Blaze, and "I Wanna Get With You" by Ritz.

✨✧ VariousOdyssey – A Northern Soul Time Capsule 1968 to 2014 (8CD/2DVD) ... CD
Harmless (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 8CD & 2DVD ... Out Of Stock
A totally wonderful collection of Northern Soul – and one that really shows the evolution of the music on the scene over the years! Despite the dates on the front, most of the tracks here are from the 60s and early 70s – and the long range of years refers to the ever-changing audience for uptempo soul in the UK – traced out here over 8 CDs that follow the search for rare soul through scenes that include Wigan Casino, Twisted Wheel, Blackpool Mecca, Cleethorpes Pier, 100 Club, and even the more contemporary Weekender sets – which have uncovered a huge amount of overlooked music in recent years! There's a stunning 230 tracks in all – a really rich amount of rare soul that goes way way past the usual Northern Soul compilations – and the large box also comes with a 160 page book that also traces the changes in UK soul scenes, and the American artists who made the music in the first place. Also includes 2DVDs – the Northern Soul documentary Keep On Keeping On, and another set of Odyssey Interviews with Kenny Gamble and John Anderson, both conducted by Richard Searling. CD

✨✧ VariousReady Or Not – Deep Jazz Grooves From The CBC Radio Canada Archives 1967-1977 ... CD
Do Right (Canada), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A much-needed look at a scene that's hardly ever gotten its due – and a wealth of beautiful jazz tracks from our brothers to the north! Canada's always done a better job of supporting its artists with national assistance than the US – so it's no surprise that some of the best jazz recordings of the Canadian scene come from the archives of it's state-owned broadcasting company – a key force in supporting great music of all types, but especially important here when it comes to jazz! The work on the set is all hand-picked by John Kong – of both the Do Right label, and the international groove underground – and it's all chosen with an ear towards the kind of older jazz tracks that are playing big on the international scene these days. Think of the inspiration for Schema, or the jazz tracks selected by Gilles Peterson, and you'll have a great idea of the grooves on this set! Titles include "Star Of India" by Electric Ninja Group, "Saphir" by Nick Ayoub, "Ready Or Not" by Kathryn Moses, "Lawrence Of Arabia" by Fred Stone, "Voices" by Al Michalek Quartet, "Consuelo" by Pierre Nadeau Trio, "The Family" by Billy Robinson, and "Soya" by Pierre Leduc.

✨✧ VariousSoul/Jazz Giants – Unissued Material ... LP
Prestige, 1960s/1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
A nice compilation of tracks issued by Prestige at the end of the 60s – and pulled from unreleased sessions cut earlier in the decade. Most of the material has an early 60s soul jazz groove to it – and there's some nice bits by strong players on the label. Willis Jackson and Wally Richardson groove on "Something Private", Jack McDuff and Red Holloway lay down "Redwood City", Blue Mitchell and McDuff take the "9:20 Special", and Gene Ammons and Clarence Sleepy Anderson play versions of "I Can't Stop Loving You" and "My Babe". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousSweet Soul Music 1969 – 28 Scorching Classics ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A massive batch of music – and almost as worth it for the overall package as it is for the great tunes inside! Like other volumes in this series, this set is beautifully put together – not only stuffed with an amazing array of classic soul from a key year in the 60s – but also done with a full color booklet that's over 60 pages long – filled with track-by-track notes on the tunes, and filled with great photos, images, and historical data! The whole thing's a perfect soul music time capsule – with the depth of production that we've always loved in Bear Family releases for other genres. Titles include "Color Him Father" by The Winstons, "Snatching It Back" by Clarence Carter, "Choice Of Colors" by The Impressions, "Reconsider Me" by Johnny Adams, "Backfield In Motion" by Mel & Tim, "Baby I'm For Real" by The Originals, "In A Moment" by The Intrigues, "Nobody But You Babe" by Clarence Reid, "Cissy Strut" by The Meters, "The Chokin Kind" by Joe Simon, "TCB or TYA" by Bobby Patterson, and "There'll Come A Time" by Betty Everett.

✨✧ VariousTruckers, Kickers, Cowboy Angels – The Blissed-Out Birth Of Country Rock Vol 4 – 1971 ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1971. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Way more than just the simple, familiar country rock you might know from the charts in the early 70s – and instead a deep deep helping of music from 1971 – a time when country influences were running strong in the hipper side of the mainstream, who were then also having a big influence back in Nashville as well! This beautiful package is filled with gems we might have overlooked otherwise – a few familiar tracks, mixed with album gems from some of the best roots-oriented rockers of 1971 – music that was really going back to basics in style, but also finding a way to move forward strongly from an ideological perspective too. These complexities are really captured well in the heavy booklet of notes by Colin Escott, who's penned 80 pages of words to support the 39 tracks in the set – a collection that includes "Hot Rod Lincoln" by Commander Cody, "Never Been To Spain" by Hoyt Axton, "White Light" by Gene Clark, "Crazy Mama" by JJ Cale, "Lost Hearts" by Cochise, "Please Be With Me" by Cowboy, "Grand Ennui" by Mike Nesmith & The First National Band, "Colorado" by Flying Burrito Brothers, "Three Angels" by Lonnie Mack, "Singing In Vietnam Talking Blues" by Johnny Cash, "The Pilgrim Chapter 33" by Kris Kristofferson, "Tulsa Turnaround" by Alex Harvey, "Wasted Days Wasted Nights" by Sir Douglas Quintet, "The Future's Not What It Used To Be" by Mickey Newbury, "Paradise" by John Prine, "Never Ending Song Of Love" by Delaney & Bonnie, and "Willin" by Little Feat.

✨✧ VariousUltimate Suburbia Suite – Future Antiques ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic sounds from the 60s and beyond – brought together in a way you'd never expect! This massive 2CD collection runs through so many different styles at once – from jazz to bossa, Latin, vocal tracks, fusion, and more – but all in a way that totally makes sense, thanks to unified sunny spirit, and a strong sense of joy throughout! The collection is titled after a very hip Japanese discography from a decade go – a guide to groovy music from the 60s, but with bits from the 70s and early 80s too – and compiler Toru Hashimoto brings together 52 gems that really fit the bill – all in the sort of collection you'll be playing for years, and which is bound to turn you onto sounds you never would have heard otherwise. The spirit is similar to some of Hashimoto's work in the Cafe Apres Midi series – and titles include "This Love Of Mine" by Shirley Scott, "Miss Universo" by Tita, "Sa Marina" by Som Tres, "Now" by Dave Mackay & Vicky Hamilton, "Like A Seed" by Morgana King, "Whatcha Gonna Do" by Rune Ofwerman, "River" by Carita Holmstrom, "I'm Too Shy" by Paige Clare, "Roda" by The Gimmicks, "Silk Stop" by Bossa Tres, "Chorou Chorou" by Joao Donato, "Aquarius" by Cal Tjader, "It's Over" by Pete York, "Sirie" by Sapoty De Mangueira, "Maos Libertas" by Leci Brandao, "Moon River" by Eva, "Jazz A Gogo" by France Gall, "I Can't Wait Until I See My Baby's Face" by Dusty Springfield, and "The Girl From Ipanema" by Boulou.
