Lord Newborn & The Magic SkullsLord Newborn & The Magic Skulls ... CD
Ubiquity, 2009. Used ... $7.99
Massively messed-up grooves – and a rare one-off collaboration between Money Mark, Shawn Lee, and Tommy Guerrero – all artists we've come to love for their own funky music over the years! The sound here is as wild as you'd expect from the cover – a really trippy approach to funk – spun out with the same heavy grooves you'd get on some of Lee's funk sets for Ubiquity, mixed with the offbeat production modes that Money Mark brought to his early Mo Wax recordings! There's a definite dose of psych on most tracks – showing the increasing influence from this end of the spectrum on 21st Century beatheads – and the fuzzier edges make for a nice change amidst Lee's usually cleaner grooves. Some vocals appear on the album, but often buried down deeply in the instrumental mix – leaving most of the album's charm to come from fuzzy guitar, trippy keyboards, and heavy beats! Titles include "Dime Bag Conspiracy", "Rainy Day Dog", "Astro Blue", "Disco Loco", "Ringa Ding Ding Ding", "LIVE", "Revenge Of The Fillet O Fish", and "Crazy Apartment". CD

Johnny LytleLoop/New & Groovy ... CD
BGP (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Killer set that combines both of Johnny's rare albums cut for the tiny Tuba label in the mid 60s! The records both have a great funky vibes sound, with lots of tight drumming, and soulful bubbling organ grooves. These are very sought after in their original pressings, and both LPs usually fetch upwards of $40 when we get them in – and they fly right out the door as soon as they hit the web. Loop is the rarer of Johnny Lytle's two albums for the obscure Tuba label from Detroit. Johnny's classic trio, with Peppy Hinnant on organ, is backed by a larger group that features Wynton Kelly on piano and Willie Rodriguez on conga. New and Groovy is very nicely stripped down - and the focus of the album is on down-and-dirty groovers, perfect for the jazzy stepper set that still digs Lytle loads! Loads of short groovy steppin jazz vibes cuts, like "The Loop", "The Man", "The Snapper", "Selim", and way way more! CD

Mandrake SomSombossa ... LP
EMI (Italy), 1975. Very Good+ ... $49.99
One of the greatest bossa jazz albums of the 70s – and recorded by an Italian group, no less! The album's the first standout classic from percussionist Mandrake – recorded with a tight little combo that includes guitar, piano, bass, and some extra-nice tenor sax! The tenor really helps give the album a solidly soulful feel – pushing the record past just breesy bossa jazz, and giving it a harder-edged sound that's made it a classic for years. A few tracks have vocals as well – and the album features a killer version of "Berimbau", plus the cuts "O Dia Em Que Eu Morrer", "Deixa Isso Pra La", and "Soul Samba". Great, and hard to find in any format! LP, Vinyl record album
(Mid 90s reissue – with Japanese obi!)

David MaranissOnce In A Great City – A Detroit Story (hardcover) ... Book
Simon & Schuster, 2015. New Copy ... $6.99 32.50
Not just a book on Motown – despite the image of The Supremes on the cover – but a story of Detroit itself – told as a series of intersecting paths that include the famous soul music label, as well as all the manufacturers, cultures, communities, and political forces that were shaping the city in the early 60s. The decline of Detroit has been a story for decades now – but David Maraniss looks at the city in the years before the fall – focusing on 1963, where he shows that tensions were already strong in some sectors, and the ground upon which so much was being built could easily shift and allow the whole thing to topple. The book is one of the most fascinating city portraits we've ever read – with lessons that are still completely essential to the 21st Century urban environment – and the whole thing is 441 pages, hardcover, with some black and white images. Book
(The spine has a small remainder mark.)

Curtis Mayfield & Linda CliffordRight Combination/Rapping ... CD
Curtom, 1972/1980. New Copy 2CDs ... $8.99 13.99
2 of Curtis rarer moments – back to back on a 2CD set! Right Combination is an album of duets that Curtis cut with rising disco star Linda Clifford – who by 1980 may well have been earning more money for Curtom than Curtis! The album's about half disco tracks, half soul duets in a Chicago mode – and arrangements are by Gil Askey and Norman Harris. Tracks include "Ain't No Love Lost", "It's Lovin Time", "Love's Sweet Sensation", "Between You Baby & Me", and "The Right Combination". Plus, there's about 10 extra cuts added to the album – including lots of rare numbers by Linda and a few clubby tracks by Curtis, non LP numbers! Rapping is a rare promo-only radio show LP that features an interview with Curtis Mayfield, interspersed with musical tracks like "Underground", "Hell Below", and "We Gotta Have Peace". Excellent stuff, with a very cool sound, and like tuning into a radio show on an AM station in the early 70s! CD

Rob MazurekChants & Corners ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2017. New Copy ... $14.99
Rob Mazurek's working here with a group of players who are most associated with his Sao Paulo Underground – although the album's not billed as such – and the leader has definitely leapt back strongly into that electronic mode that really characterized the initial second chapter of his career! Rob blows cornet on the record, but maybe handles more electronics overall – and the group also features more electronics from Thomas Rohrer, who also blows flute and soprano – plus additional keyboards from Guilherme Grado. More acoustic elements come into the music from the drums of Mauricio Takara and piano (both regular and prepared) of Philip Somervell – and overall, the sound is very dark and noisy – maybe more so than any other previous Sao Paulo projects. Titles include "The Blue Haze", "Android Sun", "Raked Harmonic Sun Burst Strata", "Sparklers For Eyes Like Splintered Lightning", and "Sun Flare Extensions & Other Dimensions". CD

Nicole Mitchell's Black Earth Ensemble & EnsembleMoments Of Fatherhood ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2016. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
A beautiful large ensemble project from flautist Nicole Mitchell – and a set that shows just how far she's come in her music over the years! Mitchell has always been wonderful, but there's something especially visionary in this project – as there seem to be larger ideas at play informing the different tones and textures of the musicians, yet still the unified spirituality that always marks Nicole's music – that special blend that really sets her apart from so many of her contemporaries, and which makes her one of the few forces to still carry on the rich legacy of Chicago's AACM, and groups like Art Ensemble Of Chicago or 8 Bold Souls! The songs here come together in this really fantastic way – sometimes feeling improvised at their initial moments, but soon taking flight in these amazing colors that come from the mix of harp, vibes, cello, violin, flute, and saxophone sounds – a tonal depth we've never heard in Nicole's music before, and which marks a huge step forward for her as a composer. Yet the music also has all the core organic energy of other Mitchell recordings – thanks to a collaborative lineup that includes David Boykin on tenor, Aruan Ortiz on piano, Benjamin Duboc on bass, Helene Breschand on harp, Sylvain Kassap on clarinets, Renee Baker on violin, Cesar Carcopino on drums and vibes, and Anais Moreau on cello. Titles include "Only One Like Him", "Building Stuff", "Cold Hard Facts", "Explorers", "Listening", "A Piece Of Advice", and "Towards Excellence". CD

Jackie Mittoo & The Soul BrothersLast Train To Skaville ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Mid/Late 60s. Used ... $12.99
We give up! Just when we thought the gravy train had stopped running, the last train to skaville pulls into the station with 16 jaunty numbers fusing ska and rocksteady with a healthy dose of Jamaican soul at the hands of Jackie Mittoo and the Soul Brothers under the guidance of Coxsone Dodd! After the Skatalites busted up in the mid 60s, Dodd set about assembling a new house band, bringing Mittoo and a number of the original members of the Skatalites, including Lloyd Brevett and Roland Alphonso, together with some of the new, younger talent, and the fine folks at Soul Jazz have assembled a mighty, mighty set of their finest moments. But as Coxsone says in the liner notes, let's "Cut the chatter and spin the platter"! Includes "James Bond", "Voodoo Moon", "Chicken & Booze", "Hpney Pot", "Mr Flint", "Dr Ring Ding", "Got My Boogaloo", "Home Made", "Sufferer's Choice" and "Hot & Cold". CD

✨✧ James MoodyAnother Bag (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Argo (Japan), 1962. Used ... $26.99
Hip, angular, post-bop material from James Moody – the kind of album that made him one of the key soul jazz innovators of the 60s! The session's one of Moody's excellent outings with arranger Tom McIntosh – a young talent who helped re-shape Moody's musical vision with his deeply colorful arrangements – penned here for a smallish group, but still breaking out with deeper tones than Moody had ever expressed before on record! Tunes are a wonderful mix of modal, soul jazz, and more introspective tunes – played by James on both flute and tenor, alongside hip players that include Kenny Barron on piano, Paul Serrano on trumpet, Marshall Thompson on drums, Ernest Outlaw on bass, and John Avant on trombone. Titles include some excellent McIntosh originals – like "The Cup Bearers", "The Day After", "Minuet In G", and "Ally" – plus equally-fresh tunes "Spastic" and "Pleyel D'Jaime". CD

Harry MoscoCountry Boy ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1978. New Copy ... $14.99
Sweet grooves from Harry Mosco – once the leader of The Funkees, but stepping out here with some wicked work from the London scene at the end of the 70s! The album's got a snapping electric vibe – sometimes clubby, but with more of a funk feel overall – thanks to some heavy basslines that really give the best cuts a kind of darkness – as do the horns, which create these down-turning inflections that are quite different than the usual sort of Afro-styled groove! Things get pretty freewheeling as the album moves on – and there's a criss-crossing of modes that almost reminds us of some of the work that Ice cut on the French scene of the time. Titles include "I Feel Funky", "Harry's Party", "It's Too Late", "Country Boy", and "Wanderer". CD
Also available Country Boy ... LP 23.99

Natural FourNatural Vour Volume 2 ... CD
Boola Boola, Late 60s/1970s. Used ... $11.99
A career-spanning retrospective of work from Natural Four – one that not only includes some of their sublime 70s work for Curtom, but also some of their rarer early sides for the Chess and ABC labels! The material is presented here in a way that jumps through different eras of time – matching a late 60s single with a mid 70s album cut – but the overall sound is wonderfully coherent, and in a way, the set does a great job of showing how strong the group's vocals were over many years of recording! Volume 2 includes the tracks "It's The Music", "Love's Society", "Message From A Black Man", "Steppin Up", "The Pacifiers", "Try Love Again", "Twelve Months Of The Year", "While You're Away", "What's Happening Here", and "You Bring Out The Best In Me". CD
(Note: CD appears to have been mastered from vinyl sources – and although printed professionally, it's a bit low-budget in terms of the packaging. CD may not play well on all players.)

Novos BaianosNovos Baianos (aka Linguagem Do Alunte) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Continental/Polysom (Brazil), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Rootsy samba and hipper 70s MPB influences – all filtered down into a really unique little groove! Back in these early years, Novos Baianos had an inventive sound that was really a standout in 70s Brazilian music – a sense of earnest, open-handed music making that was something of a legacy from the Tropicalia years – but one that also carried with it some of the more hippie-dippy influences in the Brazilian underground of the early 70s! The style here is a bit sparer and more acoustic than on some of the group's other records – often comprised from samba percussion and guitar, but occasionally augmented by more electric instrumentation, as well as some folkloric flute! Titles include "Reis Da Bola", "Isabel", "Bolado", "Miragem", "Fala Tamborim", "Ao Poeta", and "Eu Sou O Caso Deles". LP, Vinyl record album

William Onyeabor & OthersWhat? – William Onyeabor Remixed ... CD
Luaka Bop, 2014. Used ... $6.99
The mad music of William Onyeabor has gained many admirers over the years – a diverse array of artists from a diverse array of scenes – some of whom have come together in this mighty hip tribute to the master! The tunes here are either remixes, reworks, or complete covers of Onyeabor's incredible electric grooves from the late 70s and early 80s – and the project's so special, Luaka Bop even called in the help of Moog to put it together – no surprise, given how moogy some of William's music could be! The remixes are all very faithful, as are the reworks – and even the covers aren't the sort of cloyingly selfish sort you usually get on tribute albums – but instead feel like some great later iteration of Onyeabor's genius. Titles include Hot Chip's cover of "Atomic Bomb", Joakim & Akwetey's cover of "Good Name", David Terranova's remix of "Body & Soul", The Vaccines' remix of "Do You Want A Man", JD Twitch's (Optimo) cover of "Why Go To War?", Javelin's remix of "Heaven & Hell", Scientist's remix of "Body & Soul", and the track "Ye Ye", which is Daphni's rework of "When The Going Is Smooth & Good".

Johnny PateBucktown – Original Soundtrack ... LP
American International, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 15.98
A funky treasure – finally unleashed! Bucktown was one of the best of the mid 70s indie blacksploitation films – thanks to some great starring work from Fred Williamson and Pam Grier – but for years, the soundtrack's never been available as an individual release. Now, this tasty heavy-vinyl set makes all the film's wonderful grooves finally available – presented in a great style that includes all the shorter moodier bits, the fuller longer funky tracks, and even a bit of sound effects and dialogue! The music was penned and conducted by Johnny Pate – of Shaft In Africa and Brother On The Run fame – and the tunes are a great blend of funky soundtrack styles that include full on big band, sparer snapping instrumentals, and even a few nice tunes with great use of moog! Titles include "Chase", "Stepping", "Bar Fly", "Check In", "Freeze", "Love Theme", "Call It In", "Sneaking It In", and "Spin". LP, Vinyl record album

Jean Luc PontyOpen Mind ... LP
Atlantic, 1984. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Jean Luc Ponty is in very tight formation here – continuing that nice shift to sparer grooves he made at the start of the 80s – when the more cluttered fusion modes of the 70s seemed a bit outdated! Most of the music here comes from keyboards and violin – usually in ways that are never too jamming, and which often hit a spacious kind of groove that mixes equal parts rock and jazz with a few newer soul influences. Guests include Chick Corea and George Benson, but most of the music is by Ponty himself – and titles include "Open Mind", "Watching Birds", "Solitude", "Modern Times Blues", "Orbital Encounters", and "Intuition".

Power Of ZeusGospel According To Zeus ... LP
Rare Earth, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Heavy rock and heavy drums – a fuzzed out classic that's one of the best lost hard rock albums of the 70s! These guys may have been a strange choice for Motown's rock-based Rare Earth label back in the day, but they've more than made a place for themselves in the history books – thanks to some really fierce rocking, and an approach to the drums that's kept the record in more than a few crates over the years – not totally a break record, but with plenty of tight work on the drums and some really monster bass! Titles include "Hard Working Man", "Uncertain Destination", "No Time", "Realization", "The Sorcerer Of Isis", "It Couldn't Be Me", "The Death Trip", and "In The Night". LP, Vinyl record album
