LoveReel To Real (with bonus tracks) ... LP
RSO/High Moon, 1974. New Copy ... On February 19, 2016
Quite an obscure one by Love – a mid 70s record that actually has quite a bit of soul in the mix! The album almost seems to be going for a Sly Stone approach – expanding the group past Arthur Lee and crew with a host of additional players that include Harvey Mandel, Bobby Lyle, and Joey Deguero. There's still plenty of bluesy and rocky tracks – but there's also a great cover of William DeVaughn's "Be Thankful For What You Got" – done in a chunky mode that really hits a great groove with us (and which is proof that people were covering the tune even back when it was first released!) Other tracks move between soulful rock, Thin Lizzy-esque compressed guitar numbers, and other styles that show a bit more soul than might be expected. Titles include "Time Is Like A River", "Everybody's Gotta Live", "You Said You Would", "Busted Feet", "With A Little Energy", and "Who Are You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ StoogesHave Some Fun – Live At Ungano's (splatter colored vinyl) (2015 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Rhino Handmade/WEA, 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Raw, incendiary live material from The Stooges, circa 1970 – recorded at NYC dive bar Ungano's, right around the time that Fun House was released! They blast through nearly all the tracks from Fun House here, minus "LA Blues", and with the rare "Have Some Fun/My Dream Is Dead", which as far as we know, was never released before Rhino Handmade dug up this incredible recording. The source was a reel-to-reel capture by someone in the audience, so the sound is a bit rough – which is of little concern when what we have here is a really important building block in creation of punk rock!

Kurt EllingFlirting With Twilight (75th anniversary edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 2001. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $15.99 24.99
Think what you may about this groove-patched hipster – we still think he's one of the best jazz vocalists of our time! Kurt Elling's carrying a torch that few other singers could handle – a direct line back to the genius male jazz vocal work of singers like Mark Murphy and Jon Hendricks, armed with the confident emotionality and freely expressive style of the former, and the jazz-based virtuosity and sense of humor of the latter. This recent Blue Note session is very much in Elling's best mode – a bit too sweet in parts, but filled with some great numbers that show him always pushing the envelope, not content to just be a "modern classic" vocalist, as might be said for some of his female contemporaries in the jazz vocal realm. Titles include "Say It", "While You Are Mine", "I'm Thru With Love", "Orange Blossoms In Summertime", "Detour Ahead", "Lil Darlin", and "Easy Living". And sure, we wish there were more original compositions – as on other albums – but Elling really still does a great job with the standards! LP, Vinyl record album

Method ManMeth Lab ... LP
Tommy Boy, 2015. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99 29.98
Method Man's first proper album of his own in quite a few years – and it's a strong one! Meth continues to be an active creative force on numerous fronts, be it Wu Tang affiliated records and tours, acting gigs, etc. – so it's not like we've been missing his presence, but a solid proper full length with Mr. Meth leading the way was LONG over due. He's got a strong team of co-stars here, including longtime partners Redman, Raekwon and Inspectah Deck, plus Strreelife, Hanz On, Chedda Bang and others. Well worth the wait and we'll go ahead and say's about damn time he finally used The Meth Lab as a title, right?! Includes the "The Meth Lab", "Straight Gutta", "Bang Zoom", "50 Shots", "The Pledge", "2 Minutes Of Your Time", "Worldwide", "Soundcheck", "Water", "Lifestyles", "The Purple Tape", "Intelligent Meth" and "Symphony".

✨✧ Joe McPheeSolos – The Lost Tapes 1980/1981/1984 (with bonus download) ... LP
Roaratorio, Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really wonderful work from the great Joe McPhee – sublime solo performances from around the same time that he was really setting the world on fire with his classic albums for the Hat Hut label! Joe had been blowing freely for over a decade by the time of these tracks – but moving into a very open, very expressive solo mode is what really set him apart from his contemporaries – as you'll hear on the extremely inventive work on these title! McPhee plays tenor, alto, and soprano sax – sometimes with a bit of electronics – and the sense of expression here is as wonderful as on the Hat Hut albums – a bold new voice in jazz, as powerful now as it was when these tracks were recorded. Titles include "The Redwood Rag", "Wind Cycles", "Voices", and "Ice Blu". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousAin't It Funky Now! – Flat Out Funk From The Jazz Brotherhood ... LP
BGP (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Jazzy 45s galore – and a huge dip into the vaults of Prestige Records! This tasty set brings together 18 classics recorded in the heyday of the jazz funk years at Prestige – the late 60s and early 70s, a time when the soul jazz sounds of previous years were being forged into a leaner, meaner, harder-hitting groove. And although the LP was the growing format during these days, there was actually a heck of a lot of great work issued on 45s – still spinning strong with the jukebox crowds in the clubs and tap rooms, and still getting major play on radio stations, where the single was still king. The set features many 45 mixes of funky classics that you might know from LPs – and intersperses them with some other more obscure numbers pulled from full albums – making for an all-solid, all-funky set of tracks from one of the hippest jazz labels ever! Titles include "Fire Eater" by Rusty Bryant, "Don't Knock My Love" by Idris Muhammad, "Jungle Strut" by Gene Ammons, "Express Yourself" by Idris Muhammad, "Right On" by Boogaloo Joe Jones, "Who's Gonna Take The Weight" by Melvin Sparks, "Sing A Simple Song" by Charles Earland, "Son Of Man" by Houston Person, "Listen Here (part 1)" by Freddie McCoy, "Black Talk (part 1)" by Charles Earland, "Message From The Meters" by Leon Spencer, "Reelin With The Feeling" by Charles Kynard, "I Want You Back" by Harold Mabern, and "Thank You (part 1)" by Melvin Sparks.

✨✧ Roscoe Mitchell SextetSound ... LP
Delmark, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the first bold statements to come from Chicago's AACM underground of the 60s – a tremendous debut effort from the young Roscoe Mitchell! The album's got a "sense of the new" feel that's as gripping as anything recorded by ESP or Impulse around the same time – a rule-breaking, freely-creative approach to jazz that builds strongly off the changes already wrought by Cecil Taylor, Ornette Coleman, and Archie Shepp! The format is somewhat like the Art Ensemble Of Chicago at times – with measured horn work from Mitchell on alto, clarinet, and recorder, Maurice McIntyre on tenor, Lester Bowie on trumpet and flugelhorn, and Lester Lashley on trombone (as well as a bit of cello). Some tracks – like the brilliant "Sound" – offer a slow-building exploration of tones and textures – while others, like the blues-joke "Little Suite", or the harmelodic "Ornette", show a wry sense of humor that would become a Chicago avant hallmark as the years went on!
