VariousSoul Lounge 9 – 40 Soulful Grooves (3CD box set) ... CD
Dome/Soul Lounge (UK), 2012. New Copy 3 CD ... $19.99
40 tracks, at one mighty nice price – and a killer entry in the long-running Soul Lounge series! Think "soul" more than "lounge" – and get past the Hed Kandi-like image on the cover – because this stuff is the real deal – a great collection of Neo Soul gems pulled from the rich catalog of Dome Records – plus excellent tracks from other contemporary labels too! There's plenty to love here if you love our Neo Soul section – and we dare say that the track selection here is as good as we would have chosen, were we to put out such a set. Titles include "Nights" by Sy Smith with Rahsaan Patterson, "You Got Love" by Kindred The Family Soul, "Like This" by Avery Sunshine, "1960 What (Opolopo kick & bass rerub)" by Gregory Porter, "Get Myself Together (souldynamic rmx)" by Angela Johnson, "Zaius (Ski Oakenfull mix)" by Incognito, "In The Thick Of It" by Sunburst Band with Angela Johnson, "This Is What You Are" by Mario Biondi, "Sweetness" by Carleen Anderson, "Warm Human" by Heston, "Never In Your Sun" by Khari Cabral Simmons with India Arie, "Body Language" by Anthony David, and "Teardrops" by Avani.

VariousSuper Funk Vol 3 – Still Rarer & Funkier Funk ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99
A killer batch of rare funky tunes – pulled from a host of tiny labels, and put together with a quality level that would blow away a crate full of of funky 45s! This 3rd volume in the Super Funk series seems to dig even deeper than the first 2 – and it also includes few incredible little nuggets that were never officially released in any format! Includes "The Tramp (From Funky Broadway)" by The Showmen Inc, "Put It In" by Johnny King And The Fatback Band, "Cissy Popcorn" and "Funky Chicken" by Preston Love, "Soul Livin" by Everyday People Unlimited, "Brother Brown" by Camille Bob, "At The Soul In" by Count Yates And The Rhythm Crusaders, "Cat Scream" by Li'l Buck, "Bending Soul" by the Soul Blenders", "Ain't It A Groove" by Chico & Buddy, "Soul Brothers Testify" by Soul Senders, "Fat Man" by TKOs, "Sweet Potato Gravy" by Maurice Simon And The Pie Men, and lots more! 20 tracks in all.

VariousVamps Et Vampire – The Songs Of Serge Gainsbourg ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy ... $14.99
Serge Gainsbourg never slept – and during his short time on this planet, managed to cut not only a host of incredible records for himself, but also write and produce some amazing music for a whole host of female singers too! The work on this set is mostly French – and features a range that goes past just the likely compatriots from Serge's inner circle, to include bigger names from Parisian pop who were touched by his sublime songwriting skills, and his innate ear for a sexy groove! The album's a wonderfully focused collection of female French numbers – all of which have that undeniable slinky sound we love in Gainsbourg's own recordings too. Titles include "Pour Aimer Il Faut Etre Trois" by Isabelle Aubert, "Les Yeux Pour Pleurer" by Nana Mouskouri, "La Chanson De Prevert" by Vicky Autier, "La Javanaise" by Juliette Greco, "Baudelaire" by Catherine Sauvage, "Les Sucettes" by France Gall, "Elastique" by Charlotte Gainsbourg, "Tandem" by Vanessa Paradis, "Lulu" by Bambou, "Con C'Est Con Ces Consequences" by Jane Birkin, "L'Anamour" by Francoise Hardy, "Reves Et Caravells" by Michele Arnaud, "Jane B" by Jane Birkin, "Hier Ou Demain" by Marianne Faithfull, "Strip Tease" by Juliette Greco, and "Contact" by Brigitte Bardot.

VariousWestbound Funk – Masterful Funk From The Detroit Powerhouse Labels Of Eastbound & Westbound ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $21.99
The title's almost redundant – as the words "Westbound" and "Funk" mean virtually the same thing! From the late 60s through the mid 70s, Westbound was one of the key record labels in the sound of raw heavy funk – working with hit groups like Funkadelic and the Ohio Players to craft a sound that laid the blueprint for countless other groups of the time, and also featuring a wealth of obscurer artists with an even harder-hitting sound! The key styles of Westbound and related jazz label Eastbound were heavy and fuzzy ones – picking up off the heady and trippy styles of the late 60s Detroit scene, mixing things up with MC5 guitars, Norman Whitfield bass, and deep underground Tribe-styled jazz touches. This 20 track masterpiece is a brilliant summation of the important Westbound sound – and includes a few hits, some funky 45 classics, and an even bigger number of tracks we might not have heard otherwise! The notes are great, the tunes are super-funky, and the whole thing's one of the best funky collections you could ever hope to purchase. Titles include "You're Messing Up My Mind" by Albert Washington, "Back To Funk" by Robert Lowe, "You Caught Me Smilin" by The 19th Whole, "Conga Man" by King Errison, "Shake Your Head" by Spanky Wilson, "I Love You" by The Motivations, "I Don't Know What It Is But It Sure Is Funky" by Mighty Elegant, "Crazy Legs" by Donald Austin, "Stone Thing (part 1)" by Alvin Cash, "RPM" by Boots, "Funky World (part 1)" by Silky Vincent, "Get Funky Sweet A Little Bit" by Jackie Harris & The Exciters, "I'll Bet You" by Funkadelic, and "Why Not Start All Over Again" by The Counts.

John Betsch SocietyEarth Blossom (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Strata East/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Mid-April, 2015 (delayed)
A beautiful session of spiritual soul jazz – and one of the rarer albums on the legendary Strata East label! The obscure combo is led by drummer/percussionist John Betsch – and instrumentation includes guitar, piano, electric piano, and reeds – all used with plenty of warm touches, and a few sharp edges – all very much in the best Strata East mode of the time! The tracks have a soaring sort of sound – similar to some of the Keno Duke material on the label, but also touched with some trippier edges too – a great blend that really brings a lot of depth to the session, and which has made this one of our favorite Strata sides over the years. Titles include "Song For An Untitled Lady", "Ra", "Get Up & Go", and "Ode To Ethiopia". LP, Vinyl record album

DjavanAlumbramento ... CD
EMI (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... Around June 10, 2015
A great album from Djavan – quite ambitious and sophisticated, but in a way that leans heavily on his amazing vocals and great songwriting skills! As on most of his best albums from the time, he's working with a small core group of jazz players – sensitive musicians who provide some incredible accompaniment to his songs – in ways that are almost a second generation take on the styles first laid out by Milton Nascimento a few years before, but at even deeper levels. The record features a guest appearance by Chico Buarque, and tracks include "A Rosa", "Tem Boi Na Linha", "Sim Ou Nao", "Aquele Um", "Meu Bem Querer", and "Sururu De Capote". CD

Gilberto Gil & Jorge BenGil E Jorge ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Around June 10, 2015
Fantastic! Normally this sort of "big pop star-meets-big pop star" album is nothing to write home about – but this killer double-length set by Gilberto Gil and Jorge Ben features both artists at the top of their form, playing in stripped-down styles that sum up their best work of the 70s. A highlight of the set is a 14 minute reading of Ben's famous "Taj Mahal" track, done in a sparer studio setting than the original, with a haunting groove, and great vocals by both singers. Other tracks include "Sarro", "Quem Mandou", "Nega", and "Meu Glorioso Sao Cristvao". Great stuff, and very long, too! CD

GimmicksBrasilian Samba ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Around May 20, 2015
The warmth of Brazil meets the cool breeze of Sweden – and the result is an album that's as groovy as groovy can be! The Swedish combo The Gimmicks perform a set of tunes that's very much in the Sergio Mendes/Brasil 66 mode – harmony vocals over the top of bossa arrangements, all sparkling with a sweet 60s finish! The tunes are great – and include favorites like "Look Around", "Roda", "The Joker", "Walk On By", "Chove Chuva", and "Look Of Love", as well as less-performed gems like "Boink", "California My Way", and "Bom Bom Bay". The album sits perfectly next to your A&M classics – and it's a heck of a lot rarer too! CD

Girls From Bahia (Quarteto em Cy)Revolucion Con Brasilia ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), 1968. New Copy ... Mid-February, 2015 (delayed)
A rare American session from the Quarteto Em Cy – working here under the name of The Girls From Bahia, and singing in English as well as Portuguese! The album's got a sound that's quite similar to the group's classic 60s Brazilian records on Elenco – thanks to bossa-heavy backings from Oscar Castro Neves – and even when singing in a second language, the girls do a really great job of hitting the sweetest, warmest harmony notes they can – that trademark vocal brilliance that made them such a huge act back in Brazil! Sonny Burke produced, but he clearly gives plenty of space to Oscar – as the album's got little of his usual Warner touches – and instead shows that when you've got the right talent in the studio, you can do a pretty good job of recording bossa in the US. Titles include "Berimbau", "Tem Mais Samba", "Edmundo (In The Mood)", "Lai Ladaia", Morrer De Amor", "Sunny Side Of The Street", "Road To Nowhere", "Old Piano Roll Blues", "The Day It Rained", "E Nada Mais", "Manhattan", "Dindi", and "A Banda (Parade)".

Gregory PorterIssues Of Life – Features & Remixes ... LP
Membran (Germany), New Copy ... Mid-September, 2014 (delayed)
A great companion to all the full length albums from the mighty Gregory Porter – as this special set brings together his side projects, appearances with other artists, and remixes as well! We love Porter's own records – and honestly feel that he's one of the freshest jazz vocal talents to come along in years – but he's also great when working in new formats too, and really brings his a-game to just about any other setting he approaches! Most of the music here is still in the jazz-based style of Porter's other records, but a few tracks are a bit more groove-heavy too – yet never in a way that's disrespectful of the vocals, or Gregory's core contributions. Titles include "About The Children" and "Be My Monster Love" done with David Murray, "Moanin (radio)" with Paul Zauner's Blue Brass, "Issues Of Life", "She's Gone", and "Just In Time" with Zbonics, "Song Of The Wind" by M1/Brian Jackson – plus remixes that include "1960 What (Opolopo kick & bass rerub)" and "She Danced Across The Floor (Automart rmx)".

Tito PuenteHomenaje A Beny ... CD
Tico, 1978. New Copy ... Spring 2015
A smoking little tribute to Cuban great Beny More – recorded in the mid 70s by Tito Puente, in a way that nicely updates the classic sound! The style here is certainly traditional, but the record really benefits from tighter salsa-era production from Louie Ramirez – who gives the music a really strong focus, and creates a shifting showcase of sounds to present a range of guest vocalists who include Celia Cruz, Santos Colon, Nestor Sanchez, Junior Gonzales, and Adalberto Santiago. Tito himself over saw the whole direction of the music and feel of the set – and plays a bit of vibes and timbales throughout. Titles include "Que Bueno Baila Ud", "Encanto De La Vida", "Camarera Del Amor", "Baila Mi Son", "Francisco Guayabal", and "Santa Isabel De Las Lajas". CD

Gianni FerrioUna Farfalla Con Le Ali Insanguinate - Original Soundtrack ... LP
Right Tempo (Italy), 1973/1998. New Copy 2LP ... Just Sold Out!
Fantastic! Easy Tempo scores again with this beautiful rerelease/repackaging of Gianni Ferrio's lost score for the film Una Farfalla Con Le Ali Insanguinate. The music has lots of spare spooky keyboards, with a slow building sound that's similar to Francis Lai's best soundtrack work, and a warm wash of sound that's very similar to some of Morricone's best stuff – like La Donna Invisible. Don't go looking for funky breaks on this one, but if you love cool swirling Euro soundtrack material, this set's an amazing piece of work, and it's been repackaged with the usual sexy Easy Tempo look. God, we love their stuff! Tracks include "Concerto Blues", "Soliloquio", and "Inutile". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Rudolph JohnsonSecond Coming ... CD
Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A brilliant album from the overlooked reedman Rudolph Johnson – his second session for the Black Jazz label, and even better than the first! There's a soaring, searching quality to the record that Johnson never had before – a way of handling his tenor with a tone that Coltrane would have envied, and which sparkles with some of Rudolph's most soulful 70s contemporaries – like Sonny Fortune or Andrew White! The tunes are almost all originals, and have this depth of vision that really holds us rapt throughout – a way of digging in and continuing to find new meaning throughout the course of Johnson's solos – with superb rhythm backing from the trio of Kirk Lightsey on piano, Kent Brinkley on bass, and Doug Sides on drums. Lightsey is wonderful too – maybe his best performance on record – and titles include the sublime numbers "The Highest Pleasure", "The Traveler", "Time and Space", and "The Water Bearer". CD

Les Freres SmithFree To Go ... CD
Les Freres Smith (France), 2015. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
This killer combo starts a fire right from the very first note on the set – then continues to burn strongly all the way through – with a vibe that's even sharper and tighter than their first set of Afro Funk a few years back! Les Freres Smith travel in familiar territory, but have a way of making their sound come out at a very personal, unique sort of level – one that's often rawer on the percussion tip than most other contemporary groups, and which layers the keyboards in with the horns, so that there's a sense of counterpoint that pushes both instruments away from their usual comfort zone! There's some slight psych touches on the production – but never in a way that gets away from the core funk of the combo – and the balance of the music is really hard to peg in words, but comes through right away with the very first listen. One of the freshest Afro Funk sets we've heard in years – with tracks that include "Supermandingue", "Liar", "Better Thing", "Djilan", "Koni", "Nia Mangolo", "AK 54", and "Crisis". CD

Gil Scott-HeronFree Will (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A really tremendous album from the legendary Gil Scott-Heron – and a set that stands as one of his greatest statements from the 70s! The record is a wonderful example of Gil's work in two different styles – sweet mellow jazzy soul, and harder heavier protest poetry – the latter from his roots as a writer in touch with the streets, and the former part of a brilliant new direction that he was taking on the Flying Dutchman label. Side one features classic jazzy tracks recorded with Brian Jackson – like "Free Will", "The Middle Of Your Days", "Speed Kills", and "Did You Hear What They Said?". Side two moves over to a much sparer sound – and has Gil reciting some of his poetry with very heavy percussion, and a very righteous approach. The wisdom and knowledge of those pieces is a perfect example of the kinds of issues that were haunting black America in the early 70s – especially on the tracks "No Knock", "The King Alfred Plan", and "Sex Education: Ghetto Style".

VariousManhattan Soul – Scepter, Wand & Musicor ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
60s soul treasures from a trio of New York labels reverered for so many great singles – Sceptor, Wand and Musicor – in a great collection from Kent UK! It's filled with group acts and solo stars, soaringly emotional cuts and rawer rumbling R&B, even some early strains of funk – and includes a number of previously unissued songs from the vault that are just as sweet as the regional hits of the time. The genuine love of the material that goes into these Kent and Ace compilations continues to impress! 24 tracks in all: "That's No Way To Treat A Girl" by Marie Night, "I Want A Guarantee" by Maxine Brown, "Stick By Me" by Ed Townsend, "Sweeping Your Dirt Under My Rag" by Ann Bailey, "Diamond Ring" by The Fabulous Dinos, "So Help Me Woman" by George Tindley, "Speed Up" by Betty Moore, "You Got It Baby" by The Toys, "Walking With Pride" by Dan & The Clean Cuts, "Ain't No Love Lost" by Patti Jo and more.

Hubbub (UK), 1970s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A lousy cover, but some really great cuts – one of the killer compilations put together by the Hubub label back in the 90s, one of the first reissue imprints that really started digging up rare 70s soul and funk! The package features both dancefloor numbers and some great mellower grooves – and really has an ear for the kind of overlooked gems that other reissue labels weren't hitting at the time (and which few others have managed to catch in recent years either!) Titles include the fantastic uptempo "Nightlife" by Blair, the much sought-after "You Should Have Told Me" by Donna McGhee, the sweet "Lovely Weekend" by Ron & Candy, the mellow "Phone Home" by Johnny Chingas, and the soulful "Speed Up" by Betty Moorer. Other tracks include "You're So Right For Me" by Eastside Connection, "I Love Her So Much It Hurts" by The Majestics, "Elijah Rockin With Soul" by Hank Jacobs, "Lovely Lady" by Vernon Burch, and "Here Is Where The Love Is" by Bobby Wilson.

✨✧ VariousRough Guide To Psychedelic Cambodia (with download) (2015 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Rough Guide, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Unusual Cambodian grooves from the psychedelic years – recorded at a time when the nation was getting plenty of influences from western sources! Many of the tracks here are cover versions – done with lots of echo on the surfish or fuzzed-out guitars – and recast with local lyrics that may well completely change the mood of the tunes – kind of a new Cambodian culture rising up in the wake of the nation's relationship to the Vietnam war. Recording details on most of the tracks is sparse, but that's also the charm of the material too – mysterious sounds from a scene that was all but destroyed by the Khmer Rouge, but recently revived in two more contemporary tracks included here. Titles include "Cyclo" by Yos Olarang, "Paem Nas Sneha" by Pan Ron, "Jam 10 Kai Theit" by Ros Seresyothea, "Bros Ey Kov Prerl" by Pan Ron, "Thgnai Kor Chrer" by Sin Sisamouth, and "Komlos Sey Chaom" by Ros Seresyothea. Also includes contemporary cuts – "Tiger Phone Card" by Dengue Fever and "Whiskey Cambodia" by The Cambodian Space Project. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousTumba Rumba – The Most Torrid Tropica Latin Record Ever ... LP
University Of Vice (Spain), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Well, maybe not the most torrid record you'll ever buy – but a mighty nice collection of obscure Latin grooves! The set showcases some of the more obscure, more unusual work that's been uncovered by Latin collectors in recent years – material that moves way past the canonical sides on labels like Fania or Tico in the 60s, or RCA in the decade before – to include work from smaller imprints and more offbeat tropical scenes – often a bit more interesting in execution than more mainstream Latin sounds. Titles include "Anabacoa" by Orquesta Ciudad Trujillo, "Maracaibo Oriental" by Tojo Y Su Orchestra, "Humo" by Tino Contreras, "Rumba Pura" by Chino Ortiz, "Maracaibo Oriental" by Beto Ovalle, "O La La" by Joe Valle, and "Las Gallegas Bailan Mambo" by Orquesta Riverside.
