Etta JamesTell Mama (180 gram – gold vinyl mono pressing) ... LP
Cadet/4 Men With Beards, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 23.99
A really unique album from the great Etta Jones – a session recorded down in Muscle Shoals, and not in Chicago – a setting that gives James an extra sort of deep soul power! The backing is nicely different than some of the other Chess material – killer work from the legendary Fame Studios lineup that included Barry Beckett on organ, Charles Chalmers on tenor, and Roger Hawkins on drums – all coming together with the great Rick Hall at the production helm! Etta's back in hard-belting R&B-tinged territory here – a bit more sophisticated than the 50s, with a good mix of hard soul numbers and ballads, opening up in some southern territory that really suits her well. Titles include "The Same Rope", "Watch Dog", "Tell Mama", "I'd Rather Go Blind", "Just A Little Bit", and "Don't Lose Your Good Thing". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500!)

BoulevardsGroove ... LP
Captured Tracks, 2016. New Copy ... $15.99
A nice modern take on classic dancefloor-ready funky soul from Jamil Rashad – aka Boulevards –delivering a genuinely tight, irresistible groove worthy of the title! The paths Boulevards travels were paved 70s and 80s funk titans from Earth Wind & Fire at their leanest, to early 80s Prince and Rick James and beyond on funky soul tip – along with some crisp, bumping electro influences from early hip hop producers – but he give it a fresh vibe – thanks incredibly effective songcraft and charismatic vocals. This is straight-up fun, pretty much irresistible effort! Includes "Set The Tone", "Got To Go", "Up On Your Love", "Move & Shout", "Cold Call", "Running Back", "Patience", "The Spot", "Talk To Me", "Tender", "Love & Dance" and "Weekend Love".

Kendrick LamarTo Pimp A Butterfly ... LP
Interscope, 2015. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99 29.99
Kendrick Lamar takes wider creative left turns than ever before on To Pimp A Butterfly – with a funk steeped production style that filters tried-and-true P Funk influences through leftfield modern beatcraft styles, inspired by cats like Madlib to Thundercat, the latter of whom is an official contributor. Fresh material from an increasingly pivotal figure – who may not be revolutionizing the game on the level of the heavy critical praise he's heaped with, but he's certainly marching to his own beat, rather than chasing hits! Includes "Wesley's Theory" with George Clinton & Thundercat, "King Kunta", "These Walls" with Bilal, Anna Wise & Thundercat, "Aright", "For Sale?", "Institutionalized" with a Slick Rick-homage of a guest verse by Snoop Dogg (sign us up for any record that gives props to The Ruler...and extra points for transplanting that style of flow to Compton), "Momma", "Hood Politics", "The Blacker The Berry", "How Much A Dollar Cost" feat James Fauntleroy & Ronald Isley, "Mortal Man" and more.

✨✧ Pat PatrickSound Advice ... LP
Saturn/Art Yard (UK), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the rarest albums ever issued by Sun Ra's Saturn Records label – and one of the few dates to ever feature baritone saxophonist Pat Patrick as a leader – Sun Ra's longtime partner in the Arkestra, and a hell of a player on his own! The record is a heavy baritone date – with Rene McLean, Charles Davis, James Ware, Reynold Scott, and George Barrow joining Patrick on the lead instrument, plus a bit of flute – blowing at a level that makes the whole thing feel like one of the best creative ensemble projects on Strata East from the period – very jazzy, but also reaching for lots of new ideas too! The music is a lot more soulful than Ra's usual work – less outside overall, but in a good way – and the group also features a young Hilton Ruiz on piano, plus Jon Hart on bass, Steve Solder on drums, and Babafemi Humphreys on congas. Titles include "Funny Time", "Uptighttedness", "Eastern Vibrations", "Sabia", and "The Waltz". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition in a silkscreened sleeve!)

Sun RaSun Song (aka Jazz By Sun Ra) ... LP
Transition/Delmark, 1956. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
Sun Ra's first album as a leader – originally issued on the Transition label, but presented here in its better-known incarnation by Delmark Records! Even at this early point, Ra had a sound unlike any of his contemporaries – large group and modern, but not in a way that showed any similarities to work going on in New York or LA – a voice that was all his own, and already quite boldly stated, even in these early years! The format might be somewhat familiar – an ensemble with horns and rhythm – but the overall execution really starts to open up as the album moves on – with odd phrasings, timings, and unusual moments that live up to all the promise you might expect from Ra. Even Mingus and some of his better-known contemporaries weren't heading in these directions in the mid 50s – and the record is a proud showcase of the freedoms that players were often accorded in the less-trafficked Chicago scene of the time. Horns include Art Hoyle & Dave Young on trumpets, John Gilmore on tenor sax, Pat Patrick on baritone, Julian Priester on trombone, and James Scales on alto sax – and rhythm includes Jim Herndon on tympani, Robert Barry on drums, Wilbur Green on electric bass, and a young Richard Evans on acoustic bass! Titles include "Brainville", "Call For All Demons", "Transition", "Lullaby For Realville", "Street Named Hell", "New Horizons", "Fall Off The Long", "Possession", and "Future".

✨✧ VariousTroubled Waters – A Compilation Of Blues & Gospel Recordings By George Mitchell 1962 to 1976 ... LP
Mississippi, 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great field recordings from the 60s and 70s – mostly secular blues, and done in a style that's kind of a modern update of sounds from the delta! Most cuts here feature just a voice and guitar – recorded by George Mitchell with this really haunting, eerie quality that's very different than studio blues of the time – that kind of close-up and personal vibe of an ethnographic recording, with a style that's incredibly moving, even when very subtle. There's no overdone attempts at authenticity here – yet the organic power of the music really comes through – on titles that include "Careless Love" by Furry Lewis, "Hey Freddie" by Napoleon Strickland, "Poor Black Mattie" by RL Burnside, "Lucy Mae Blues" by Cecil Barfield, "Count The Days I'm Gone" by Rosa Lee Hill, "Miss Maybelle" by Jessie Lee Fortis, "My Lord" by Green Pascal, and a few instrumentals by James Davis on guitar!

Dee Felice TrioIn Heat ... LP
King/Bethlehem, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A killer album of soul jazz piano instrumentals – produced by James Brown! The Dee Felice Trio were a groovy combo from Cincinnati, and James Brown took a shine to them at some point in the late 60s. They backed James on one record, but their big moment was this album – which had James producing, and the group grooving nicely on some hard piano jammers! The sound's a lot more stripped-down than usual for James, but the groove is very nice! Includes an excellent funky version of "There Was A Time", a great cover of Marcos Valle's "Crickets Sing For Anamaria", and the tracks "Summer In The City", "In Heat", "Both Sides Now", and "Never". Darn hard to find, too! LP, Vinyl record album
Also available In Heat (Japanese pressing – with bonus tracks) ... CD 15.99
