James BrownIt's a Man's Man's Man's World ... LP
King/Universal, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
James Brown, proud and loud – a smoking 60s album that provides a great link between his earlier styles and his freer roots – with a brilliant blend of funk, soul, and a touch of raw R&B! Given the power of The Godfather at this point, there's no denying that even the older cuts have a punch that few others could match – making for a record that feels mighty darn unified, despite the stretch of time between a few of the recordings. Titles include the funky gems "Ain't That a Groove (pts 1 & 2)", "The Scratch", "Is It Yes or Is It No", and James' great version of "The Bells" that's always been one of our favorites – plus Just You & Me", "I Love You Yes I Do", "Come Over Here", and "I Don't Mind". The cover also comes with an "autographed" photo of James on the back with the text "James Brown Fans – Frame This 8 x 10 Picture" – and an image that says "Soul Brother #1 Is Peeking At You Thru The Key Hole"!

Wayne TalbertHouston Nickel Kicks ... CD
Mercury (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $14.99
A gem of a record from the mighty Wayne Talbert – an artist who first rose to fame as a the keyboardist in Sir Douglas Quintet, but who turns out to be a hell of a talent on his own! Talbert's got a blend of rock and soul that's not unlike his old boss Doug Sahm – but he's arguably even deeper on the soul side, possessed of a voice that's as deep as his frame is large – and able to turn it towards mellow cuts as well as he can towards the kind of upbeat rockers you'd expect to hear from Wayne Cochran! The album's got a great soul pedigree in the production of Huey P Meaux and arranger Jimmy Jones – who both give things just the right sort of Texas twist – but it's clearly Talbert who makes the whole thing shine, and wins us over more and more with his vocals as the album goes on. Titles include "Sufferin City", "Hello Maryanne", "Your Tears Leave Me Cold", "Wish You Were Here", "I Can't Take Another Heartache", "Put It On Me", "Lover To A Friend", and a great cover of "Lonely Weekends".

✨✧ Michael KiwanukaLove & Hate ... CD
Interscope, 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A set that arguably has even more majesty than the debut album from Michael Kiwanuka – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of that now-classic record! Production here is by Dangermouse, Inflo, and Paul Butler – and there's an airiness to some songs that really has Kiwanuka's vocals floating in space – maybe more iconic than before, and held nicely in a balance between open sonic elements and more crispily-focused instrumental touches. Michael uses folksy currents in his vocals that almost recall Nina Simone during her Philips Records years – and titles include "Black Man In A White World", "One More Night", "Love & Hate", "Rule The World", "Father's Child", "The Final Frame", and "Cold Little Heart".

✨✧ Mary HopkinPost Card ... LP
Apple, 1969. Very Good+ ... $6.99
The sweet, lovely and lush full length debut of Mary Hopkin for Apple Records! Mary's vocals are fragile and sweet, and Paul McCartney's production frames it like a pillow on the softer tunes – with light bits of acoustic guitar – and makes are sound like the queen of all natural on the more grandly orchestrated tracks. 15 tracks on the original album, including "Those Were The Days", "Lord Of thE Reedy River", "Love Is The Sweetest Thing", "The Puppy Song", "Inchworm", "Young Love", "The Game", "Someone To Watch Over Me" and more.

Georgia Anne MuldrowOlesi – Fragments Of An Earth ... CD
Stones Throw, 2006. Used ... $8.99
The most astral album ever on Stones Throw – written, produced, played and sung by the stunning Georgia Anne Muldrow – the deepest avant garde funky soul effort we've heard in years from anyone on a beathead record label this side of Dwight Trible! Georgia reportedly has personal roots that can be traced to the work of Eddie Harris and Phaoah Sanders – her father built instruments for the former and her mother performed with the latter. We believe it! Georgia's own work on keys, synths and other instruments has that soaring feel – as does her emotionally drifting vocals and free-spirited lyricism – but she shares a groove sensibility and liberal approach to the hip hop aesthetic with sometimes collaborators Platinum Pied Pipers and SA-RA. A legend in the making! Tracks include ""New Orleans", "Melanin'", "Wrong Way", "Feet", "Frames", "Lovelight", "Because", "West Coast Recycler", "Blackman", "Nowadayze" and more. CD

✨✧ Gary ByrdPresenting The Gary Byrd Experience (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Get On Down, 1972. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A wicked lost album of righteous funk and poetic knowledge from the great Gary Byrd! Gary began his life as a soul DJ in New York, but by the early 70s, he was using his rich voice to create recordings designed to educate as much as entertain. That said, the album is as funky as it is strident, and innovatively soulful – it's got raw and heavy drums and horns the burst in, but there's also roomier, slinkier grooves created to frame Byrd's voice and mood. The arrangements are by Chico O'Farrill and he really delivers. Gary Byrd's storytelling and spoken delivery leads the way, though – righteousness without bitterness, angry yet agreeable – truly brilliant and unique work! Titles include "To You Beautiful Black Sister", "If The People Only Knew (Power To The People)", "Shining Black Prince", "Country Preacher", and "How Long My People" and more. This great 2011 CD edition from Get On Down includes the bonus "Soul Travelin' Pt I (The GBE)" and "Soul Travelin' Pt I (The GBE)". CD

✨✧ Charlie Mariano & Sadao WatanabeCharlie Mariano & Sadao Watanabe ... LP
Victor (Japan), 1967. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lost chapter in the career of Charlie Mariano – one of the few albums he recorded in Japan with Sadao Watanabe! The record captures Mariano at a key time – one in which he still had the framework of his earlier, boppish style – but also a period when he was stretching out a bit more, especially in his tone, going for notes and sounds that would soon explode on his more experimental records of the 70s. This set is ostensibly straight – Mariano and Watanabe both playing alto and flute, backed by a rhythm section – but there's moments on the tunes that really have an edge, and which push the material way past the simple structures and sounds you would expect. Titles include "Goin Home", "On The Trail", "Black Orpheus", "Work Song", and "Oh Lord Please Don't Let Them Drop That Atom Bomb On Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy green label pressing, with deep groove!)

✨✧ PortisheadThird ... LP
Mercury, 2008. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A decade since their previous effort, and 14 years since their previous masterpiece, Portishead returns with Third – and, oh, what a mindblowing third act. The first thing you'll realize about Third is that it's not Dummy Part 3 – a welcome and surprising trait – but it does take their earlier way with a spooky, brooding and ominous framework to new dimensions. Secondly, there's no obvious single – it's to be taken as a whole. Beth Gibbons's vocals are as soul wrenching as ever, and an overall stark, melancholic beauty connects Portishead '08 to the old stuff, but they go deeper. Some bits are quite minimalist, wringing emotion from a low strum, a distant chime, or a haunting bit of dissonance – other parts are more richly layered and even a bit jarring. Pulp cinematic aura, feedback textured psychedelia, haunting European pop, and traces of field recorded folk flavor the sound – they've dabbled in all of these elements before – but never with this particular feel. The sound of epiphany. How many acts in the pop realm create a whole new style with a classic album, and then pull off something nearly as great almost 15 years later, without ripping themselves off? Add Portishead to that small list. We'll call '08 early, this is the best pop album of the year. Titles include "Silence", "Hunter", "Nylon Smile", "The Rip", "We Carry On", "Deep Water", "Machine Gun", "Small", "Magic Doors", "Threads". LP, Vinyl record album
