Walter Strerath TrioFly To Brazil (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Be! (Germany), 1975. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
A rare bossa jazz session from 70s Germany – recorded with a very fluid groove! We'll be honest in saying that we only know pianist Walter Strerath from this one album – but he's a heck of a great talent on the keys, with a style that's at once highly rhythmic and warmly lyrical – a blend that's a bit like American pianist Jack Wilson at his best, and which is wonderfully suited to the bossa-inspired style of the record. Accompaniment here is from bassist Dieter Petereit and drummer Peter Schmidt – again two names we don't really know – and they bring a style to the record that's similar to some of the best MPS/Saba trio sessions of a few years before. Titles include the originals "Fly To Brazil", "Bossa Made In Germany", "Bara Bossa", "On 4 Goes It Loose Blues", and "Slow Fly" – plus a great version of "Con Alma". New package features notes in both German and English – plus a bonus 1974 live session by the trio, with 8 tracks in all! CD

SweetGive Us A Wink ... LP
Capitol, 1976. Near Mint- ... $13.99
Classic pop glam from Sweet – easily one of the best torchbearers of the genre in the 70s! The album's got a sweetly compressed sound that's right up there with the best of Queen – but even more rocking overall, and without any of the too-flowery or too-flashy moments. Tunes are stompingly catchy, and filled with loads of fuzzy guitar that's mixed right down into the roots of the rhythms – and although this album doesn't have as many hits as some of the group's other work, it's a killer set through and through. Titles include "The Lies In Your Eyes", "Lady Starlight", "Action", "Yesterday's Rain", "Healer", "White Mice", and "Keep It In". LP, Vinyl record album
(In the die-cut "winking action" cover, including the heavy inner sleeve.)

Gabor SzaboSorcerer (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Impulse (Germany), 1967. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99
A key moment in the career of Hungarian guitarist Gabor Szabo – a player who'd already been making some great music in the group of Chico Hamilton, but who really cemented his reputation with the sound on this set! Right from the start, Gabor was always a guitarist with something very new, very fresh to offer – an approach that was partly steeped in older European gypsy guitar sounds, but also inflected electrically towards a trippier, more modal, more psychedelic quality – something he'd explore strongly on this sweet little set. The album begins in a bossa mode, then really trips out – as a second guitar weaves lines around Gabor's own – and drums and bass provide a very cool modal groove. Titles include "Los Matodoros", "Corcovado", "O Barquinho", "The Beat Goes On", "Lou-ise", "Space", and "Mizrab". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gabor SzaboSorcerer/More Sorcery ... CD
Impulse, 1967. Used ... $9.99
A pair of enhanting Impulse sets from '67 – Sorceror and More Sorcery – together in a single set! Sorcerer is one of the best albums ever by the great Eastern European guitarist, and a groovy set of spiralling jazz tracks, recorded live at The Jazz Workshop with a two-guitar frontline, and backing by a very tight rhythm combo. The sound is amazing, with lots of choppy modal grooves, and other longer tracks that have a vaguely mystical feel to them. Titles include "The Beat Goes On", "Space", "Mizrab", "O Barquinho", and "Lou-ise". More Sorcery is the great sort of a follow-up – and like that one, it features long tracks that have a spiralling modal feel that's much more serious, much more grooving, and a lot less campish than some of his other albums of the time. The two-guitar lineup mixes rhythm and melody – perfect for the tunes on the set, like "Los Matadoros", "Spellbinder", "Comin Back", and "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds". CD

Horace Tapscott/Pan Afrikan Peoples ArkestraFlight 17 ... CD
Nimbus, 1978. New Copy ... $12.99
One of the best Horace Tapscott albums on Nimbus – and one that features him playing with the Pan-African Peoples Arkestra, who give the session a much fuller feel than some of Horace's other sparer sets. The group's made up of some strong hip players from the LA underground – and in a way, the record is an extension of the same kind of large-group style that Horace oversaw on Sonny Criss' legendary Sonny's Dream album – an angular blend of soulful and modern styles. Tracks include "Maui", "Flight 17", "Clarisse", and "Breeze". CD

Melvin Van PeeblesBrer Soul ... LP
A&M, 1968. Sealed Gatefold ... $28.99
Amazing stuff from Melvin Van Peebles! Brer Soul is a mad mix of funky soul insanity and straight up wisdom – a mix of moods that also seems to inform the best of his films, now that we think about it – and it's put together with enough wild clashes of culture to shake anyone up. Funk, soul, jazz, poetry, and righteousness blend into a great batch of tracks! Includes groovy cuts like "Lilly Done the Zampoughi Everytime I Pulled Her Coattail", "Mirror Mirror On The Wall", "The Coolest Place In Town", "The Dozens", "Tenth And Greenwich (Women's House Of Detention)", and "Sera Sera Jim". It's the right kind of late 60s crazy from one of the most unique artists ever to pick up a microphone, camera or any other artistic medium put of front of him! LP, Vinyl record album

Walker Family SingersPanola Country Spirit ... CD
Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... $12.99
Maybe the best title so far in the Como, MS series from Daptone Records – a very earthy, very rootsy set of harmony vocals sung by the Walker Family Singers – a group headed up by sometime Sam Cooke backing singer Raymond Walker! Yet the music here is quite far from the Cooke reference mentioned on the cover – and even quite far from Sam's roots in the Soul Stirrers, too – because the recording style is very stripped-down, and the group works with no other instrumentation at all – just their magnificent voices, in a timeless gospel style that's still alive and well down in Como. Titles include "Sweet Home", "Old Ship Of Zion", "Living Testimony", "Shake My Mother's Hand", "He Didn't Have To Wake Me", "My Time Will Come", "Chilly Jordan", and "Had My Chance". CD

Wanderers/Ruth PriceShadrach Meshack & Abednego/Shadrach ... 7-inch
Popcorn (UK), Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A great group soul version of this classic biblical theme – set to a sweet R&B-styled vamp, and served up in a wonderful blend of lead vocals and deep harmonies! Ruth Price is pretty great on the flipside – a jazzier take on the tune, with this wonderful drum passage underneath the vocals – lots of acoustic bass, toms, and snare under Price's lyrics! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Various26 Premio Da Musica Brasileira – Homenagem A Maria Bethania ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2015. New Copy ... $16.99
A tribute to Maria Bethania – one that starts out with a few songs by the lady herself, then opens the door to work from a whole host of hip Brazilian talents – not just contemporaries from Maria's big years in MPB, but also some of the leading lights of the 21st Century as well! Many tracks are presented in a way that shifts between singers in a "pout-pourri" mode that recalls older Brazilian live sets – and titles include "O Quereres" and "Carcara" by Maria Bethania, "Pau De Arara" by Lenine, "Ambar" by Adriana Calcanhotto, "Lua Vermelha" by Arnaldo Antunes, "Negue" by Alcione, "Pra Dizer Adeus" by Dori & Nana Caymmi, "De Manha" by Caetano Veloso, "Cigarro De Paia" by Monica Salmaso & Jackson Antunes, and "As Ayabas" by Marlene De Castro.

A follow up to the excellent roots collection A Place Called Africa, with the same wonderful selection of conscious cultural-themed roots rock spread out over 2 discs! 44 tracks spanning three decades, starting with early afro-centric rocksteady, through the heavy mid 70s sufferer's rock on into more conscious 80s dancehall numbers, this excellent collection includes Bob Andy's "Weep", Little Roy's "Hard Fighter", the Maytones' "Babylon A Fall", Wailing Souls' "Harbour Shark", Keith Hudson's "Satan Side", the Soul Syndicate's "Riot", I Roy's "Balck Man Time", Big Youth "The Killer", Lee Perry "Justice to The People", Dennis Alcapone "Rasta Dub", Augustus Pablo's "Eli's Move", Jimmy Riley "Give Thanks & Praise", Sugar Minott "Strange Things", Waybe Jarrett's "Satta Dread" and loads more!

✨✧ VariousBirth Of Soul Vol 3 – More Seminal Early 60s Sides That Reflect Soul Music's Gospel, R&B & Vocal Group Roots ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The third volume in one of the greatest series on Kent – a selection of tunes from the early days of soul music, when R&B had peaked, gospel was lending a bit of influence, doo wop was turning into group harmony, and the term "soul music" was just a twinkle in the eyes of a few critics and punters! The vintage for most of these tunes is 1960 to 1964 – and Kent have done a great job of pulling together tunes with deep roots in the styles of the past, but which have one ear firmly turned towards the future of 60s and 70s soul. There's a total of 28 tracks in all – and titles include "She Put The Hurt On Me" by Prince La La, "Shorty's Got To Go" by The Impressions, "The Rains Came" by Big Sambo, "Talk To Me" by Sunny & The Sunliners, "Just For You (Stone Fox)" by Billy Watkins, "You Can't Run Away From me" by The Wanderers, "Play It Again" by Pat Lundy, "Help Me" by The Diplomats, "Have Love, Will Travel" by Richard Berry, "The Teacher" by The Falcons, "I Wanna Thank You" by The Enchanters, "People In Love" by The Taylor Brothers, "Don't Stop The Wedding" by Ann Cole, and "Don't Feel Sorry For Me" by Jimmy Ruffin.

✨✧ VariousBlues For Dootsie – The Blue & Dootone Sides ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A treasure trove of rare postwar blues from the west coast – material cut for Dootsie Williams, best known as the head of the seminal Dootone label in LA! The set offers both tracks from Dootone and Williams' rarer imprint Blue – the latter of which existed from the late 40s into the early 50s, and featured a fair bit of excellent material done in the more laidback bluesy mode of LA after the war – styles popularized by Charles Brown, Cecil Gant, and others – echoed strongly in many of the performances here. As the set rolls on into the later 50s, some of the tracks pick up a bit more of an R&B sound – but the work is still relatively unified here, thanks to a good focus on the more blues-based work on Dootone. 30 tracks in all, plus some really great notes – all at the usual high Ace level! Titles include "Rent Day" by Stormy Herman, "Richmond Blues" by Betty Hall Jones, "West Coast Baby" by Johnny Taylor & His Mellow 5, "I Got A Country Girl" by Bobby Nunn, "Everybody's Jumpin Tonight" by Dootsie Williams & His Rhythm Kings with Joe Turner, "You'd Better Come Home Baby" by Violet Hall, "The Hole In The Wall" by Cleo Brown, "Are You Ready To Go Steady" by Paul Monday, and "Katy Lee" by Fats Gaines.

VariousCan You Jack? – Chicago Acid & Experimental House 1985 to 1995 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. Used 2CD ... $11.99
An essential look at the key years of the Chicago house scene – the time when the city's musicians were carving out a whole new space in sound! Although early house first began as an extension of some of the later modes of disco and 80s club, influences from European post-punk and post-disco work soon crept into the mix, and pushed the Chicago artists to work in a darker, edgier sound that was completely unique! The work from this period is filled with stark, spare electronics – not the cheesy kind that showed up often in New York electro records, but intense analogue bits that had a really dark, dystopic space age sort of quality – laid out over harsh beats and bass, and often presented with no additional vocals at all. For the collection, Soul Jazz do a great job of picking out the best of the early acid house scene in Chicago (the key recordings before the term got picked up overseas, and used to make some very dodgy dance music at the end of the 80s) – and then they go on to pull together some of the best strands of the house revival in Chicago in the early 90s, including key work from the Cajual label. 2 CD set features 17 tracks in all – including "This Is Acid" by Maurice, "Do You Want To Percolate" by The Sweat Boyz, "Beyond The Clouds" by Mr Fingers, "Go Wild Rhythm Track" by Virgo, "Acid Crash" by Tyree, "Dum Dum (part 2)" by Fresh, "Acid Bass" by Roy Davis Jr, "Phuture Jacks" by Phuture, "I've Lost Control" by Sleezy D, "Take Me Higher" by Virgo Four, "Acid Over" by Tyree, "Box Energy" by DJ Pierre, "Video Clash" by Lil Louis, "Explorer" by Green Velvet, "Like This" by Two Of A Kind, "Acid Tracks" by Phuture, and "Downfall" by Armando.

VariousEast Village Other – Electric Newspaper ... LP
ESP, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $109.99
One of the coolest, weirdest records ever issued on the legendary ESP label in the 60s – and an album that really sums up the East Village crossroads from which the imprint sprang! The music here is a mad melange of art rock, hippie folk, sound samples, and avant jazz – all presented in a non-stop blend of music which is often layered together – very much with the feel of the newspaper promised in the title – except a newspaper of the "underground" version that was often sold on street corners back in the day! Tracks include "Jazz Improv" by Marion Brown and Scott Holt, "Noise" by The Velvet Underground, "Interview With Hairy" by Ken Weaver & Ed Sanders, "Silence" by Andy Warhol, "The Free Lance Pall Bearers" by Ishmael Reed, "Love & Ashes" by Tuli Kupferberg, "Luci's Wedding" by The Plastic Clock Radio, and "Mantras" by Allen Ginsberg & Peter Orlovsky.

VariousEthiopiques Volume 23 – Orchestra Ethiopia ... CD
Buda (France), 1960s/Early 70s. Used ... $8.99
One of the rootsiest sets so far in the Ethiopiques series – a batch of tracks that have a much more ethnographic feel than you might guess from the "orchestra" in the group's name! Although Orchestra Ethiopia flourished during a great modern age of music in their homeland, they were actually dedicated to reviving traditional styles and bringing them to a much larger, younger audience – in modes that are often heavy on percussion, group vocals, and eerie, other-worldly lines on wooden flutes. Although the group recorded a number of albums under the direction of Tesfaye Lemma, the CD features mostly previously unissued recordings by the orchestra – offering up an even rarer slice of their music. As with other Ethiopiques titles, there's great notes inside – both in English and French – to help you understand the subtlties of the music – and the CD itself features over 75 minutes of music, with 23 tracks that include "Od", "Shama Kefena", "Teraraw", "Tennesh Mekedda", "Hode", "Tezeta", "Besetchet", "Lale Guma", "Senbet", "Aba Balano Shanka", "Wolayta Krar", and "Leqedame Atbiya".

VariousFrom Sacred To Secular – A Soul Awakening (8CD set) ... CD
History Of Soul, Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 8 CDs ... $51.99 54.99
A heavy set of early soul music – mixed with a fair bit of gospel as well – all to show the evolution of the sounds of the style from its roots in the church! The package willfully – and wonderfully – mixes tracks from soul, R&B, and gospel sources all together in a ridiculously huge batch of tunes – 231 songs in all – running from late 40s jump blues and gospel, through the rise of R&B in the 50s, currents of electric blues, hard-edged vocal material, and lots of key cuts from the earliest years of soul music – all packaged in a book-style cover with a set of notes and lots of vintage images within! At first glance there doesn't seem to be a strong sense of organization to the package – but there's a musical vibe that really shows up once you start listening – taking a journey from spiritual to secular, with plenty of stops along the way. The package features dozens and dozens of different artists – only a handful of whom include The Aladdins, Davis Sisters, Caravans, Marie Knigh, Linda Hopkins, Dorothy Love Coates, The Sheiks, The Drapers, Kelly Brothers, JJ Barnes & The Del Fis, Mable John, Highway QCs, Soul Seekers, Soul Stirrers, Sugar Pie DeSanto, Singin Sammy Ward, Johnny Adams, Solomon Burke, Brother Joe May, Prince La La, Womack Brothers, Arthur Alexander, Willie Tee, Valentinos, and many more – including a fair bit of bigger names from 60s soul!

VariousHippies, Hasch, Und Flower Power – 68er Pop Aus Deutschland ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99 27.98
Very groovy work from the German scene of the late 60s – served up by a whole host of different artists who were trying to deal with the cultural changes at the time! The title only hints at the grooviness within – as there's a very unusual mix of modes that includes some older orchestra leaders trying to get "hip", some pop singers trying to trip out, and even some French artists singing in German – but with these unusual elements in their music! The notes in the book are in German, but include shots of all the original records with release information too – and the whole thing comes in a very cool and unusual slipcover style too. Titles include "Hare Krishna" by Gudrun Su Kramer, "Rot Rot Rot" by Harmut Konig, "Vietnam Song" by Manfred Krug & The Klaus Lenz Sextet, "Wir" by Freddy Quinn, "Gammelshake" by Margret Furer, "Jimi Oh Jimi Hendrix" by Kaplan Flury, "Marihuana Mantra" by Kuno & The Marihuana Brass, "Hippie Hippie" by France Gall, "Der Wasserman" by Spencer Davis Group, "Molotov Cocktail Party" by Vivi Bach & Dietmar Shonherr, and "Der Minirock" by Horst Und Benno.
