James BrownIt's a Man's Man's Man's World ... CD
King/Universal (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
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"!

Larry YoungSelections From Larry Young In Paris – The ORTF Recordings (10 inch LP) (2015 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Resonance, 1964/1965. New Copy ... $18.99
A very cool, very limited 10" album release of early material by the great Larry Young – mid 60s sessions from Paris that predate his more famous albums on Blue Note! Young's really starting to stretch out here – still working with a bit of the soul jazz vibe of his Prestige recordings, but also finding new directions too – as he plays both piano and organ – on two tracks in trio format – then just organ on two especially great cuts that feature Nathan Davis on tenor sax, Woody Shaw on trumpet, and Billy Brooks on drums! Titles include "Frame Of Thought", "Larry's Blues", "Beyond All Limits", and "Luny Tune". LP, Vinyl record album
(Hand numbered, limited edition of 1500 copies!)

Brian ColemanCheck The Technique Vol 2 – More Liner Notes For Hip Hop Junkies (paperback) ... Book
Wax Facts Press, 2014. New Copy ... $25.99 27.98
Golden age of hip hop historian Brian Coleman's second Check The Technique tome – the in-depth stories behind some of the greatest records of the 80s and early 90s – an even greater collection than the first volume! Coleman's approach is straight-forward and direct – chronicling a choice selection of 25 bonafide classic albums, breaking them down track-by-track, peppered by interviews with the artists, producers and other principle personalities behind the work, for the most honest histories that Coleman can get. Volume 2 uses a broader time frame than the previous collection, going as far back as 1981's Wild Style Breakbeats, and as recent as the late 90s for Mos Def & Talib Kweli's Black Star and The Coup's Steal This Album. Other records discussioned include The Cactus Album by 3rd Bass, A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing by Black Sheep, The Sun Rises In The East by Jeru The Damaja, Mantronix The Album, Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Links, Stetsasonic In Full Gear, Stunts, Blunts & Hip Hop by Diamond & The Psychotic Neurotics and more. Like the author's Check The Technique Vol 1 and Rakim Told Me, it's vital hip hop history, breezily readable and engrossing as can be. 525 paperback pages, and each chapter includes photos of the artists, the records and associated singles, and other choice historical tidbits. Essential! Book

✨✧ Roxy MusicCountry Life ... CD
Reprise, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The fourth album from Roxy Music – and quite possibly their best to date! The album has the group moving strongly past the Eno years, into a tighter framework that still contains many of the darker themes of earlier records. Ferry's lead vocals are incredibly majestic – rising to heights to match the European greats of years past who were his inspiration – and the group's tight blend of reeds, guitar, and moody keyboards gives the whole album an off-kilter sense of instrumentation that really sets it apart from the pack. There's an artfulness here that's never overdone, and the whole thing comes together with a magic that's impossible to describe, but which is Roxy at their best. Titles include "Out Of The Blue", "The Thrill Of It All", "Three & Nine", "Triptych", "Casanova", and "Prairie Rose". CD

✨✧ Gary ByrdPresenting The Gary Byrd Experience (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Get On Down, 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Souls Of Mischief/Adrian YoungeThere Is Only Now – The Ali Shaheed Muhammad Remixes (10 inch EP – on colored vinyl) ... LP
Linear Labs, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great little companion piece to the Adrian Younge-produced There Is Only Now record by golden age of hip hop veterans Souls Of Mischief – remixed here by fellow 90s era icon Ali Shaheed Muhammad! Ali appears on There Is Only Now-proper, too, serving as its narrator – but as one of the great hip hop producers of his generation, you gotta figure he'd be called upon to take a turn in the driver's seat on the production tip, and we're certainly glad he did. It includes ""Time Stopped", "Panic", "Another Side Of You", "All You Got Is Your Word", "There Is Only Now" – plus the instrumentall versions of each – done with a rawer, grittier feel that the album version. The Souls' rhymes are framed nicely by the gritty beats and it's absolutely a worthy companion to it. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition orange colored vinyl.)

✨✧ Channels/Continentals/Bop-Chords/Love-NotesRumble ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of Jubilee Records' excellent collections of earlier vocal group material – served up in a cool covered package with some nice Scorpio Rising overtones! The collection doesn't exactly come across with the violence implied by the name, and most material here has a style that's older than the cover image would imply – but the album, like others in the series, was a key format for presenting cuts known only as singles – at a level that gave them a bit more prominence in the market. The whole thing's great – music that's at the best level of early group soul on the New York scene – and titles include "Fine Fine Frame" and "Dear Lord" by The Continentals, "The Gleam In Your Eye" and "The Closer You Are" by The Channels, "Castle In The Sky" and "When I Woke Up This Morning" by The Bop Chords, and "If I Could Make You Mine" and "Tonight" by The Love Notes.
