✨✧ Gene & EuniceGo On Ko Ko Mo ... CD
Combo/Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A wonderfully-done collection of work from Gene & Eunice – a 50s duo who had just a handful of hits, but cut some wonderful work for both the Aladdin and Combo Records label at the time! Gene & Eunice have a male/female style that's a key precursor to the bigger soul duet modes of the 60s – sometimes singing together at once with a nicely-harmonized sound, sometimes answering back and forth in a way that really gives their songs a lot of personality – and which makes them a likely inspiration for later folks like Ike & Tina Turner or Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell! And while this set's titled after their biggest hit – "Ko Ko Mo" – it's also got a range of work that finally shows the full late 50s scope of the pair – early singles for the Combo label, a number of which were never issued back in the day – and another dozen or so tracks recorded for the Aladdin label too – a total of 28 titles that include "You & Me", "This Is My Story", "Hi Diddle Diddle", "I'm So In Love With You", "Ko Ko Mo", "Flim Flam", "I Know A Girl", "Tell Me That You Love Me", "Poco Loco", "I'll Never Forget You", "Send Me Someone", "Only Lovers", "Can We Forget It", and "Move Over Baby".

✨✧ Grant GreenAm I Blue (RVG Remaster) ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of Grant Green's mellowest albums – a haunting set of intimate ballads and blues, played with a quintet that includes John Patton on organ, Joe Henderson on tenor, and Johnny Coles on trumpet. Henderson and Coles give the album a very different feel than the usual Grant Green soul bop session – and Green proves himself to be a sensitive soloist more than capable of opening up new moods and colors of old standards like "For All We Know", "Am I Blue", and "I Wanna Be Loved".

✨✧ Grant GreenFeelin The Spirit (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1962. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Soulful, spiritual work from guitarist Grant Green – an exploration of older tunes with a hip Blue Note 60s soul jazz approach! The album features Grant working in a quartet with Herbie Hancock, Billy Higgins, and Butch Warren – plus some added tambourine on a number of tracks – and the overall approach is extremely laidback and open, with Green soloing in a personal style that's a bit less frenetic than some of his other work of the period. Tracks include "Go Down Moses", "Just A Closer Walk With Thee", and "Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen". CD features the bonus track "Deep River". CD

✨✧ Joe HendersonRelaxin At Camarillo ... LP
Contemporary, 1979. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
We love Joe Henderson's 70s sides, and though this is reaching the end of the decade, it still smokes. Joe sounds great, with his raw edge still intact, playing nice far reaching solos that never leave the pocket. The set opens with "Y Todavia La Quiero", a nice groover with a feel like an uptempo "Love Supreme" set to cook rather than open you up spiritually. Chick Corea, Tony Dumas and Peter Erskine are the band, though Richard Davis and Tony Williams guest on two cuts. The set also includes one of our favorite Corea compositions, 'Yes, My Dear", plus the title track, "Crimson Lake" and "My One And Only Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny HodgesTriple Play (80s pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
RCA, 1967. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
The "triple play" in the title refers to the fact that Johnny's working here with 3 different groups – all of them large ones, and stuffed with Ellington-esque players that include Ray Nance, Paul Gonsalves, Milt Hinton, Tiny Grimes, Hank Jones, Cat Anderson, Jimmy Hamilton, Harry Carney, and Billy Butler. Tracks are short, but there's a few nice ones that have the raw bite of Hodges' best work for Verve – with titles that include "Fur Piece", "Take Em Off Take Em Off (parts 1 & 2)", "Sir John", "On The Way Up", and "Wild Onions". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lightnin HopkinsBlues ... LP
Mainstream, 1950/1951. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Great vintage recordings from Lightning Hopkins – initially recorded by producer Bob Shad on his trips to the south in the early 50s, then later issued on Shad's label Mainstream in the 60s! The style here captures Hopkins at his best – very spare and lowdown, with gritty guitar alongside Lightning's wonderful vocals – both intertwined in a snakey mode that's extremely compelling. There's no other instrumentation on the tracks at all, but there's a presence and personality that's extremely full – maybe more so than most other Hopkins material of this vintage. Titles include "Coffee Blues", "Hello Central", "Long Way From Texas", "Gotta Move", "Dirty House Blues", "Freight Train", and "Everybody's Down On Me". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Willis JacksonCool Grits (aka Please Mr Jackson) ... LP
Prestige, 1959. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
Smoking tenor work from the legendary Willis Jackson – and a key record in Jackson's transition from 50s R&B to 60s soul jazz! Willis gets some great help on the session from Jack McDuff on organ and Wild Bill Jennings on guitar – both of whom craft some rootsy grooves that further enforce the strength of Jackson's tenor lead, and which also allow for a bit more improvisation alongside the tight grooves of the set. McDuff's got his organ in that full-on early mode – lots of vibrato to fill up the space – and Jennings' guitar comes across with that wonderfully raspy tone that was a good precursor to the work of George Freeman. Titles include "Cool Grits", "Dinky's Mood", "Please Mr. Jackson", and "633 Knock". This is a later version of the album Please Mr Jackson – with a different cover and title, but the same tracks.

✨✧ Eddie JeffersonMain Man ... LP
Inner City, 1977. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
One of our favorite albums ever from Eddie Jefferson – one of the last sessions he ever recorded as a leader, and a stone cooker through and through! The arrangements here are by Slide Hampton, who hits a really soulful groove for the set – one that moves away from some of the more experimental modes of other Jefferson dates of the 70s, and hits a snapping, swinging style that moves Eddie back to his hippest modes of the 60s. Hampton plays trombone in the group, and other players include Charles Sullivan on trumpet, Richie Cole on alto, Junior Cook on tenor, Hamiet Bluiett on baritone, and Harold Mabern on piano and electric piano. Leon Thomas produced the record, and Joyce Lawson guests as the female voice on a remake of "Moody's Mood For Love". Other titles include a killer version of Duke Pearson's "Jeannine" that is probably worth the price of the album alone – and there's also "Benny's From Heaven" and "Freedom Jazz Dance", both of which are great, too – plus "Summertime", "Exactly Like You", and "Night Train".

Al JohnsonBack For More ... LP
Columbia, 1980. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Wonderful work by Al Johnson – one of the unsung heroes of mellow 70s soul, finally getting his shot on a major label after many years as a songwriter and arranger for other aritsts. Norman Connors brought Al to Columbia – and as he did with other talents in earlier years, like Phyllis Hyman and Michael Henderson, this sort of sponsorship gave Al a chance to reach a much larger audience. Even though the record was never a huge hit, it is an enduring soul classic that still has a lot of resonance today. It features Al's classic duet with Jean Carn on "I'm Back For More" – a cut that was recorded by other artists, but which has its best-known version here. Also features "I've Got My Second Wind" – which Al did on an earlier album of his own – plus "You Are My Personal Angel", and "Peaceful". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Elvin JonesLive At The Village Vanguard ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1968. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Prime post-Coltrane material from Elvin Jones – featuring his "power trio" style of operation, with one great sax player out front, and Jones kicking it in the back with the bass player! In this case, the sax player is George Coleman – who's really finding a voice of his own in these late 60s years, and really makes the most of the extended space of the album to stretch out, soar, and show off his ever-growing talent for a powerful solo! Wilbur Little is on bass, playing nice round warm notes to offset Jones' edgey playing – and the group's joined by trumpeter Hannibal Marvin Peterson on one track – who brings in a soulful edge that's mighty nice. All tracks are nice and long – and titles include "Laura", "Mister Jones", and "By George". CD

Evelyn Champagne KingLove Come Down – The Best Of Evelyn Champagne King ... CD
RCA/BMG, Late 70s-Mid 80s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A solid overview of RCA material from Evelyn Champagne King – from the disco era hits, catchy club soul, and synth soaked 80s grooves! Evelyn's sound is usually upbeat and catchy, but she's does her thing and more measured and and smoothed out soul numbers, and bass & synth grooves in the early 80s. Very nice stuff all around! Titles include "Shame", "I Don't Know If It's Right", "Music Box", "I'm In Love", "Don't Hide Our Love", "Betcha She Don't Love You", "Action", "Get Loose", "Teenager", "High Horse", "Your Personal Touch" and more. 16 tracks in all.

Magnum ForceTouch Of Funk/Share My Love ... 12-inch
Chi Sound, Early 80s. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
2 sides of work by this oft-overlooked late Chicago soul group! "Touch Of Funk" is a pretty nice bass-heavy dancefloor track, but the real gem here is "Share My Love" – a sublime harmony soul ballad, and the kind of track that rivals the best of the New Jersey vocal group scene of the early 70s! A wonderful track that should have been huge – arranged and produced by the triple threat team of Otis Leavill, Willie Henderson, and Carl Davis! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(White label promo.)

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ Lionel HamptonOff Into A Black Thing ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the hippest albums ever cut by Lionel Hampton – a badass batch of 70s funk tunes, recorded with arrangements from the Chicago powerhouse team at Brunswick Records! Lionel's vibes are mixed with tight drums, sweet bass, and some very soulful arrangements that make even the mellower tracks feel like they've been lifted from some lost blacksploitation soundtrack. Includes great versions of 2 Willie Henderson tunes – "Off Into A Black Thing" and "Funky Chicken", both of which sound even better than the originals with the vibes in place – plus the tracks "Easy", "Shut Your Mouth", "I Found Sunshine", and "One Man Band". CD
Also available Off Into A Black Thing ... LP 9.99
