Rita Jean BodineBodine, Rita Jean ... LP
20th Century, 1974. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Not as funky as Rita's other record on 20th Century – but still pretty nice, in kind of a compressed mid 70s rock sort of way. Rita uses a lot of heavy guitars on the tunes, creating a nice undercurrent of guitar-based funky rock underneath her sweeter vocals, at a level that still has some nice soul touches. There's a great cover of "Hold On I'm Comin" that has a nice break, plus the cuts "Lovin Man", "Old Friend", "Lickin Stick", "Dynamite", and "Dancing In The Streets". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the lyric sleeve. Cover has a partially unglued bottom seam.)

Rita MarleyWho Feels It Knows It ... LP
Shanachie, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 22.98
Righteous sounds from Rita Marley – a set that's one of her best-remembered albums, and done in a well-crafted style that definitely lives up to the Marley family name! The set was recorded at Tuff Gong, with a lean quality and laidback groove that lets Rita really step out front on vocals – and titles include "A Jah Jah", "That's The Way", "Good Morning Jah", "Easy Sailing", "One Draw", "Who Feels It Knows It", "Thank You", and "Play Play".

✨✧ Rita LeeHoje E O Primeiro Dia Do Resto Da Sua Vida ... CD
Rev-Ola (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tripped-out batch of hard jamming tracks from ex-Mutante Rita Lee – recorded with assistance from all the members of the group at the time, but in a mode that's quite different overall! Lee is clearly the star of the show here – singing all lyrics with a much fiercer vocal approach than on her earlier solo album – pushing things hard to keep up with the jamming keyboards of Arnaldo Baptista and guitar of Sergio Dias – both of whom are working with the energy that would show up in the Mutantes styles in the years after Lee departed. One of the most compelling aspects of the record is the structure of the tunes – less conventionally rockish overall than the direction Os Mutantes were moving towards – and still with that strong dramatic flair that Lee always provided when in the group. Titles include "Vamos Tratar Da Saude", "Amor Branco E Preto", "Superficie Do Planeta", "Teimoisia", "Tapupukitipa", "Beija Me Amor", and "Frique Como". CD

One of the first records that has Rita emerging to become one of the big female rock singers of Brazil – done in a style that's pretty straight, with some elements of older rock, and a tightly produced LA-style sound. The songs have some pretty good hooks, and Rita's overall style is a bit like Linda Rondstat at the same time – although a bit hipper. Titles include "O Toque", "Ovelha Negra", "Pirataria", "Dancar Pra-nao Dancar", and "Carto Postal". CD

An unusual bit of 70s funk from Rita Lee – quite different than her work with Os Mutantes, and pretty darn soulful throughout – thanks to some heavy basslines from the Tutti Frutti combo! The flipside features a great tune named after a supermarket – with these soaring strings and funky rhythms from Pete Dunaway – almost with the vibe of a cop/crime soundtrack from the Italian 70s scene, but some deeper soul as the vocals come into the mix with a sweet AOR vibe! 7-inch, Vinyl record

John AddisonSmashing Time ... LP
ABC, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $8.99
Mod 60s all the way – as the film stars Michael York, Rita Tushingham, and Lynn Redgrave! The score is by John Addison, and actually more than half of the numbers are vocal ones – featuring the girls singing in series of whimsical tunes that are sort of a 60s take on the Merry Old England style. There's a few nice mod numbers, though – including the really great "Day Out", which kind of tipples and soars in a nice way, sounding almost like a lost tune from El Records! Other tracks include "Carnaby Street", "While I'm Still Young", "New Clothes", "Jabberwock March", "Baby Don't Go", "Can't Help Laughing", and "Pie Fight". LP, Vinyl record album

Uni/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $19.99
A solo set from John "Balderdash" Herron – a singer who'd worked previously as part of the duo of Bondoggle & Balderdash – but who maybe sounds even better here on his own! The album's got a nicely strong focus on John's raspy vocals and songwriting – and backs his efforts with well-done arrangements that echo some of the rootsier elements of similar vintage Uni Records material by Elton John – although with maybe a bit more of a country rock vibe overall, as you'd guess from the title. Rita Jean Bodine helps out on backing vocals, and titles include "Shirley Goodness & Mercy", "Picture Tube Blues", "Sing It Like A Farmer", "Back To The Wilderness", and "Whiskey Flat". CD

Hard to deny the lasting power of this crucial album from The Beatles – a set that unleashed some of their trippiest sounds and most tender moments too! The mix of wit and honesty is wonderful – and the sonic range is dynamic as the archetypal cover image – a package that's had an undeniable impact on modern music for the past few decades!

Marc BennoMinnows ... CD
A&M (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $21.99
A wonderful mix of subtle soul and down home rock – the kind of rare magic that could often happen best in the hands of A&M during the early 70s! Marc Benno's stepping out a bit here from his debut – working with a larger lineup that includes Bobby Womack and Jesse Davis on guitars, and backing vocals from the trio of Rita Coolidge, Clydie King, and Venetta Fields – as well as a bit of accordion from the legendary Nick DeCaro! The expanded lineup doesn't hurt the record at all, though – because Benno's still very much at the forefront vocally and in the lyrics of his wonderful tunes – weaving a way between different styles of the time, and marking a space that should have made him a much bigger artist at the time. But perhaps that's the real charm here – a subtle genius that's bubbled under for years, made all the richer by its under-discovery! Titles include "Back Down Home", "Stone Cottage", "Franny", "Speak Your Mind", "Good Times", "Baby I Love You", and "Don't Let The Sun Go Down". CD

Chico BuarqueOs Primeiros Anos (Chico Buarque De Hollanda Vols 1, 2 & 3) ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 1966/1967/1968. New Copy 3 CDs ... $29.99
A beautiful collection of work from Chico Buarque – one of the most important singer/songwriters in Brazilian music during the past 50 years! The three records in the set are the classic Chico Buarque De Hollanda Vols 1, 2, & 3 – real standard-setting records that still stand as some of Chico's finest music ever! The first album is Chico Buarque's debut, and a groundbreaking batch of tunes that helped shape the sound of popular music in Brazil for years to come! Buarque predates the Tropicalia era, but is working here in a style that clearly allowed for their later impact – a mode that draws on styles from bossa, folklore, and samba – but which somehow manages to rise into a groove that's all its own. Buarque's genius can immediately be summed up in classics on the set – like "Pedro Pedreiro", "A Rita", "Tem Mais Samba", "A Banda", and "Ole Ola" – all wonderful numbers that make the album an essential one in any collection! Volume 2 features simple, effective, straightforward tunes – and music that has had a resonance in Brazil for many decades since! At one level, the sound here draws heavily from the samba recordings of previous years – but at another level, there's a greater level of sophistication that predates the growth of the MPB generation during the 70s – a sound that blends in some larger backings and airy production, all for a sound that's completely heavenly! Titles include "Noite Dos Mascarados", "A Televisao", "Fica", "Com Acucar, Com Afeto", "Logo Eu?", "Ano Novo", "Realejo", and "Um Chorinho". Volume 3 is a record that seems to draw on all the best elements of 60s Brazilian pop, and forge them into a sound that's all its own! At one level, there's a post-bossa style of larger arrangements here that recalls the work of Edu Lobo – handled by Maestro Gaya in a mode that recalls some of the best bits of the time on the Elenco or Forma labels. But at another level, there's also a personal and slightly folksy style that reminds us of the initial power of Geraldo Vandre – a sound that's clearly present in Buarque's work, and which stands in a direct line to the best strengths of the emerging Tropicalia generation. The set's filled with classics that include "Carolina", "Roda Viva", "O Velho", "Ate Pensei", "Sem Fantasia", and "Desencontro" – and a few tracks feature Chico in duets with either Toquinho, Cristina, or MPB4!

Joe FarrellSonic Text ... LP
Contemporary, 1979. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Beautiful post-CTI work from Joe Farrell – a record that has him stretching out in the kind of long, flowing, and open tunes that have always been the strongest side of his work! The setting is mostly acoustic – save for a bit of electric piano on a few tracks – and players include Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, George Cables on piano, Tony Dumas on bass, and Peter Erskine on drums – hitting some nice chunky rhythms on some of the album's best tracks, and keeping up the funky undercurrent that we always love in Farrell's work. Farrell himself plays tenor, soprano, and flute – and titles include "Sonic Text", "If I Knew Where You're At", "Sweet Rita Suite", "When You're Awake", and "The Jazz Crunch". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gilberto GilGilberto Gil (1969 plus bonus tracks) (Brazilian pressing) ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1969. Used ... $14.99
The rare 3rd album by Gilberto Gil, and a key piece of the Tropicalia puzzle – one of the most wildly experimental albums from those years, and Gil's last before going into exile! The sound is much more electric than his other albums from the late 60's – and the production, songwriting, and instrumentation get very crazy at times – but never too crazy to cover up Gilberto's excellent singing, which is still as filled with feeling as ever. Arrangements are by the mighty Rogerio Duprat, who does as great a job here of balancing Gil's sensitivities as he does on Gal Costa's sublime efforts from 1969 – and the instrumentation is a weird and wonderful mix of Bahian rhythms, fuzzy guitar, and crazy electronics – all heartfelt one minute, freaked out the next. Tracks include "Cerebro Eletronico", "Volks Volkswagen Blue", "Futurivel", and "2001", which was written by Tom Ze and Rita Lee – plus the wild cut "Objecto Semi-Identificado", which is sort of a John Cage-esque track of found radio and electronics, with vocals by Gil! And as an added bonus, you get 5 bonus cuts: demos of "Cultura E Civilizacao" and "Come Medo, Com Pedro", a duet with Jorge Ben & Caetano Veloso on "Queremos Guerra", a live version of the cut "Aquele Abraco", and the cut "Oma Lao".

Gilberto GilGilberto Gil Songbook Vol 2 ... CD
Lumiar/Sony (Brazil), 1993. New Copy ... $14.99
Gilberto Gil's working here not as the main artist, but as the songwriter – the very special talent around which this excellent set of recordings is based! The package is one of our favorite in the Lumiar Songbooks series – and, like the rest, it showcases the tremendous compositional abilities of Gil – songs that have touched the Brazilian scene from the late 60s onward – presented here in a number of new recordings by some of his key contemporaries, and younger generations too! This second volume features lots of surprising versions of his tunes – 13 titles that include "Back In Bahia" by Barao Vermelho, "Palco" by Jorge Benjor, "Se Eu Quiser Falar Com Deus" by Gal Costa, "Punk Da Periferia" by Rita Lee, "Realce" by Sandra De Sa & Eduardo Dusek, "Divino Maravilhoso" by Leila Pinheiro, "Refazenda" by Paralamos Do Succeso, and "Pessoa Nefasta" by Erasmo Carlos.

Elvin Jones & Richard DavisHeavy Sounds ... LP
Impulse, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $59.99
Heavy Sounds, indeed – a beautiful little set of dark-edged soul jazz from the mid 60s – co-led by bassist Richard Davis and drummer Elvin Jones! The sound here is a bit different than any work ever released by either player as a leader – and is almost more in the vein of Blue Note or Prestige work of the same period – hardbop turned towards more soulful notes, but also still touched with a degree of modernism. A key element in the group is Frank Foster on tenor – whose blowing here is superb, and really on a par with his own albums as a leader from the time – marking a strong sound away from too many years of Basie influences! Frank does a killer job on his own "Rauncy Rita", taken here in a nice sexy groove, and stretched out nice and long with a very sinister feel – and other tracks include "ME", "Summertime", and "Elvin's Guitar Blues", which actually features Jones on guitar!

Universal/Polysom (Brazil), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99
A real turn in direction for Os Mutantes – working here in the early 70s without Rita Lee, and in a vein that's much more progressive overall! The album's still got plenty of playful twists and turns, but the overall songs are quite long and often jamming – making strong use of the increasing talents of Sergio Diaz on guitar and Arnaldo Baptista on keyboards – both of whom get in plenty of solos on the set. There's a seriousness here at times that was missing from other work, and – if we dare say it – there's an earnest quality that we never would have expected from the group! Titles include "Hey Joe" (not the Hendrix cover, but an original by the group), "A e o Z", "Rolling Stones", and "Voce Sabe". LP, Vinyl record album

Os MutantesHaih Ou Amortecedor ... CD
Anti, 2009. Used ... $3.99
The long awaited return of Brazilian iconoclasts Os Mutantes – featuring original Mutante Sergio Dias and a great new band – plus songwriting contributions from Tom Ze and Jorge Ben – a forward looking endeavor, not at all a nostalgia trip! It's been around 30 years since the previous Os Mutantes album, and the never predictable Dias sounds as fresh and energized as we hoped he'd be – with bright, catchy-as-hell melodies, wildly playful carnivalesque sounds as well as more rootsy acoustic bits, on songs that fearlessly blend genres and influences. It's hard to imagine that we'll ever love records from Mutantes, or anyone else in any genre, as much as we love the late 60s stuff – but this is excellent, and among the better Mutantes records since the Rita Lee era. Dias sings and plays electric & acoustic guitars, Egyptian oud, organ, percussion, harmonica and handles the string arrangements, and fellow Mutantes this time out include percussion, drums & vocals by Dinho Leme and Bia Mendes, vocals, piano & keys by Henrique Peters and Fabio Recco, percussion & sound design by Simone Sou, bass, flute, strings and string arrangements and more by Citor Trida. Titles include "Hymns Of The World (Intro)", "Querida Qierida", "Teclar", "2000 E Agarrum", "Baghdad Blues", "O Careca", "O Mensageiro", "Anagrama" featuring Tom Ze, "Aamba Do Fidel", "Nada Mudou", "Gopala Krishna Om", "Hymns Of The World (Final)" and more.

Gene PerlaBill's Waltz ... CD
PM, 2008. New Copy ... $11.99
A really beautiful album from bassist Gene Perla – quite different than his better-known funk sessions of the 70s, but equally wonderful in its own sort of way! The approach of the album is pretty unique – as Perla takes as the core a set of drum recordings he made with Elvin Jones in the mid 80s – some with added congas from Don Alias – then more fully composed into musical tunes by Perla, which are then played by the NDR Big Band! The process alone is pretty amazing – and the results are even better – these surprisingly strong, surprisingly organic tracks that have Elvin's drums at the core, while the larger orchestra shades in the music with these wonderful colors and tones – that very rich style we love so much from the NDR group. Titles include "Chi Chi", "Sweet Rita", "Mickie", "Korinna", "Swissterday", "Daybreak", and "Bogota Morning Bird" . CD

The soundtrack features performances by Rita Moreno, Morgan Freeman, June Angela, and Skip Hinnant – as well as many others – and the tunes are a groovy groovy batch of tunes written by Joe Raposo in the same mode as his best work for Sesame Street. If anything, there's a bit more hippie in this one – as well as a bit more Multiplication Rock goofiness – as you'd guess by tunes with titles like "Giggles Goggles", "Silent E", "Easy Reader", "Clam Song", "Sign Song", "D", and "Punctuation".

Spider have a sound that's warmer and more personal than their name – this cool blend of roots rock with warmer harmonies – almost as if America were recording with more of a down-home vibe. The quartet has one female member, which expands the vocal approach nicely – and they also get help on the backings from lots of hip studio cats – including Rita Jean Bodine, King Errison, Vanetta Fields, Clydie King, and Alan Parker – in arrangements from Dee Barton and Jim Horn. Titles include "May 16th", "Pass It On", "Puppets", "Revival", "Burnin", "Southwind", and "Little Love Song". CD

Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
Great groovy pop from the Italian scene of the 60s – a wealth of rare singles from female singers, almost all of whom we've never heard before! We'll confess to a long love and deep knowledge of female French singers from the time – but also admit a strong ignorance about most Italian pop, which always seems a bit harder to find – especially collected together in sets like this for the English-speaking world. And while we totally love the French sets from Ace Records, we almost dig this one even more – as the whole thing's so fresh, so groovy that each new tune is a real delight – as bold orchestrations mix with mod rhythms, rockish instrumentation, and some totally cool Italian lyrics sung by a batch of female singers who've definitely got us already digging for more. Titles include "Baluba Shake" by Brunetta E I Suoi Balubas, "Il Mio Posto Quale" by Ornella Vanoni, "Sono Qui Con Voi by Caterina Caselli, "Un Amore Inutile" by Isabella Ianetti, "La Notte E Fatta Per Rubare" by Catherine Spaak, "Il Geghege" by Rita Pavone, "Ragazzo Triste" by Patty Pravo, "Se Telefonando" by Mina, and "Questa Sinfona" by Carmen Villani.

Melbourne, Australia may not instantly come to mind as a center of soul music – but in recent years the city's seen a huge growth in its deep funk scene – which has also produced lots of great soul singers as well! This great package is a strong overview of the female soul going down in the city right now – vocalists who are very much in the vein of other contemporary funk singers – like Alice Russell or Sharon Jones – only one of whom, Kylie Auldist, we've ever heard before! There's a core band to the project – and all cuts are exclusive to this set, with the singers swapping out from track to track while the funky combo grooves on. Titles include "Beautifully Broken Heart" by Candice Monique, "More Than A Mouthful" by Kylie Auldist, "Who Told You" by Chelsea Wilson, "Love Connection" by May Johnston, "I Need A Man" by Rita Satch, "Accelerate" by Lisa Faithful, "What We Had Back Then" by Candice Monique & Chelsea Wilson, and the long "Women Got Soul" track, with all the singers in the collection, and more!

The first segment of work on the set is especially nice – and features the suite "Wells Raises Kane" – comprised of music from The Magnificent Andersons and Citizen Kane, played by the CBS Radio Orchestra conducted by Bernard Herrmann! Next up are 5 more titles by Herrmann – sweeter tunes from the soundtrack to Jane Eyre – followed by Anita Ellis' great dubbing of "Please Don't Kiss Me", used for Rita Hayworth's performance in The Lady From Shanghai. Remaining themes include "Macbeth" by Jacques Ibert, "Mr Arkadin/Confidential Report" by Paul Misraki, and 3 selections from "The Third Man" performed by zitherist Anton Karas – not really Welles-directed material, but still essential, given his role in the film!

✨✧ BoscoeBoscoe (with download) ... LP
Kingdom Of Chad/Numero, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
One of the hippest records ever to come out of Chicago – the sole recording by Boscoe, a group who was even more obscure and experimental than contemporaries like The Pharoahs or Artistic Heritage Ensemble! Like those groups, Boscoe has a very unique, very visionary approach – one that's not content just to echo the standard post-Coltrane modes that other spiritual jazz groups around the country were hitting – but which instead moves into territory that touches on the darker sides of funk, soul, and spoken word of the time – all with a message that's incredibly powerful, and conception that's wonderfully fresh throughout! The group's lineup features tenor, trumpet, trombone, guitar, bass, and drums – but they way they're put together is often far different than other funky combos – and it's clear that the group had as much of a sensibility about the overall sound of their record as they did their freer grooves. At times, there's a righteousness here that recalls the best of the early Westbound Records scene from Detroit – but there's an even higher agenda too, which is more in keeping with the spiritual aspriations of their Chicago contemporaries, and which really show up in the lyrics. The whole album's a masterpiece from start to finish – unlike anything that we can think of, still ripe for rediscovery today, and just the kind of set that makes us prouder than ever of our Chicago heritage! Titles include "We Ain't Free", "Money Won't Save You", "Now and Den", "He Keeps You", "I'm What You Need", and "Writin' On The Wall". LP, Vinyl record album

CCSTap Turns On The Water – The CCS Story (CCS/CCS II/Best Band In The Land/Singles) ... CD
RAK/Esoteric (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
Brilliant work from CCS – a jazz-rock big band led by UK blues rocker Alexis Korner, arranged by Brit easy maestro John Cameron, and produced to full strength by the legendary Mickie Most! The group had a sound that was really great – with lots of fuzzy guitars up front in the mix, supported by a larger, fuller blend of horns, funky bass, and drums. The sound was a more rock-based take on styles that had been showing up on late 60s soundtracks and 70s sound library albums – but which is served up here with a more straightforward punch that makes for plenty of guitar-based funky moments. A few tracks get a bit bluesier – in keeping with Korner's heritage – but the whole set grooves pretty darn nicely – and this 2CD package features the entire RAK albums by the group – three album's worth of material, plus tracks from singles too! Titles include "Boom Boom", "Walking", "Dos Cantos", "Sunrise", "Living In The Past", "Black Dog", "Tap Turns On The Water", "Sixteen Tons", "If I Never Sing Another Song", "City", "This Is My Love", "Whole Lotta Rock & Roll", "Our Man In London", "Memphis", "Hurricane Coming", "Hang It On Me", and "Lola".

At times, there's a very unstructured quality to the recording – the most unfettered approach forged by the AACM – with Dawkins especially stretching out, on soprano, alto, or tenor sax. At other points, though, Bankhead's wonderful basslines pull things in, and give them a soulful solidity that underscores the spiritual elements of the music – that element in his sound we always appreciate, and which seems to bring Drake's percussion strongly into focus too – creating a groove that's almost like the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble at times. Titles include "One For Fred", "Waltz Of Passion", "Jah Music", "Down N The Delta", "The Rumble", "Sweet 22nd Street", and "Woman Of Darfur". CD

Phil Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsembleArmageddon (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Katalyst, 1968. New Copy Gatefold ... $9.99 11.99
A rare and beautiful treasure from Chicago's Phil Cohran and his legendary Artistic Heritage Ensemble – material recorded at the end of the 60s, but only issued here for the first time ever! The sound on the record is amazing – much deeper, and more forceful than anything else we've ever heard from Cohran – almost in Sun Ra Arkestra territory at times, given the group's out-there playing, and bold collective action! The lineup is similar to other Cohran recordings from the time – Phil on cornet, Henry Gibson on congas, Pete Cosey on guitar, Louis Satterfield on bass, Charles Williams on alto, Don Myrick on tenor, Charles Handy on trumpet, Willie Woods on trombone, and Aaron Dodd on tuba – a group that's a wonderful bridge between the two important Chicago generations headed by Sun Ra and Earth Wind & Fire. Armageddon is an extended piece, divided up into five different musical acts – conceived by Cohran in the late 50s, and recorded here in 1968 – with some great help from The Spencer Jackson Family on the leadoff track "Motherless Child". Other titles include "Creation Of The Beast", "The Warning", "The Window", and "Armageddon" – a clear reference to the power of the atom bomb! CD

Phil Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsembleSpanish Suite ... CD
Zulu/Katalyst, 1968. New Copy ... $9.99 11.99
Great lost work from the legendary Phil Cohran and his Artistic Heritage Ensemble – a composition that was recorded during the group's late 60s years on the Chicago scene – but which has never been released until now! The album stands beautifully alongside the group's self-titled classic and their tribute to Malcolm X – and like those amazing records, this one has a feel that's all its own – an exploration of Moorish elements in Spanish culture – which comes off as a Latin-inflected sound with African roots! The lineup here is similar to other Cohran classics – Donald Myrick on baritone sax, Charles James Williams on alto, Eugene Easton on tenor, Charles Handy on trumpet, Willie Woods on trombone, Aaron Dodd on tuba, Pete Cosey on guitar, Henry Gibson on congas, and Louis Satterfield on bass – a mix of musicians that includes members with Sun Ra and Earth Wind & Fire listed in their resumes! Cohran's vision in the suite is wonderful – and the music has all the depth and righteous energy of his self-titled record, but a bit more Latin fire too – a beautiful blend that really makes us appreciate his genius even more than before, and which finally gives us another record of his to love after all these years.

Sam DeesHeritage Of A Black Man ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Killer soul from the 70s! Sam Dees was one of the decade's greatest unsung talents – and his work as a writer and arranger has appeared on countless recordings from the time, even though he himself didn't cut many under his own name. As part of his creative process, though, he would often cut very professional private recordings to work out his songs and his musical ideas – and nearly all of those recordings had a quality that was as good (or better) than most of the soul material that was being issued to the commercial market at the time. This great 22 track CD (a follow-up to Kent's other set of Dees' demos) brings together some of Dees' best private recordings, and the set's filled with some of the best 70's soul tracks we've heard in ages! Titles include "Why Must I Live In Chains", "Black Tattler", "Meet Me Half Way", "Where Is The Love", "Only Lonely People", "Just As Soon As The Feeling's Over", and "Lovers Or Enemies". Highly recommended! CD

Dino & Montevideo BluesMontevideo Blues (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Lion, 1972. New Copy ... $4.99
Really compelling work from the enigmatic Dino – a set recorded with slow, slinky backings from the Montevideo Blues combo! The album's a lot less blues than you might guess from the group's name – and in a way, the approach is almost more folksy, or singer/songwriter overall – with a key focus on Dino's political lyrics, and backings that often follow along with snakey guitar and slinky rhythms. There's a raspy brilliance to the whole set – and Dino almost sounds like Uruguay's equivalent of Geraldo Vandre – a powerful, positive singer, but one who never reached a bigger audience outside his homeland. Titles include "Sentimiento", "Si Te Vas", "Montevideo Blues", "Milonga De Pelo Largo", "Para Hacer Musica Para Hacer", and "Chamarrita El Chiquero". CD reissue is as amazing as the original – with a huge booklet with notes, history, and lyrics – plus 7 more bonus tracks too! CD

Dokkerman & The Turkeying FellazIllegal Move (with download) ... LP
Tramp (Germany), 2015. New Copy ... $16.99
A modern funk melting pot from Hungary! Group leader Tamas "Dokkerman" Michelberger is on keyboards, leading a great 9 piece group strongly rooted in gritty 70s funk – heavy drums and fierce bass grooves, and horns that show some love to JBs style funky soul as well as strains of African styled funk, and that extends to the guitars, too – but they're not all dismissive of their richly diverse European heritage. That all makes it sound like there might be too many ingredients, but that's not the case all – the gritty funk at the core holds it together nicely! Strong modern funk on Tramp, which continues to be strong source for both rare vintage and contemporary grooves! Includes "Vigyazz, Kesz, Ot", "Illegal Move", "Plan B", "Beast Chase", "Antilope", "Mango Season", "La Casa En Llamas", "Once", "Snake Bite" and "Tinigondok". LP, Vinyl record album

EsqueritaEsquerita! ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $14.99
Standout early work from the mighty Esquerita – an artist you might initially write off as a Little Richard copycat, but one who also delivers a whole lot more in the end! The groove here is rough R&B, inflected with a touch of early soul – and the piano lines are worth the price of admission, played at a level that goes back to early New Orleans roots, but with more 50s bluesy currents – often alongside some tenor and guitar that rival the best instrumentation you'd find on indie singles at the time from King and Atlantic – quite a surprise for the normally-pop Capitol Records. And the vocals are something else, too – certainly with a soaring, screaming range – but also just wonderful when they're more down to earth, and in the groove. Titles include "Hey, Miss Lucy", "Why Did It Take You So Long", "She Left Me Cryin'", "Get Back Baby", "I Need You", "Maybe Baby", and "I'm Battie Over Hattie". CD

Peven EverettKissing Games ... CD
Mogul/Studio Confessions, 2002. Used ... $15.99
Another solo masterpiece from Peven Everett – underground soul at its finest, and a hand-made album by this unique artist who refuses to be held to the rules of the record companies! This set's much more uptempo than Peven's Speed Of Light album – jumping along in a lively groove with lots of house music influences and plenty of warm and soulful keyboards. Peven's vocals are more stripped down than before – spare, catchy, and really hitting the essence of his style. A few other tracks feature an unnamed female singer, and as with Peven's other work, the album's steeped in soulful instrumentation that reveals his rich heritage in jazz. Titles include "Sounds Like Paradise", "The Lillie Walk", "Puerto Rico", "Boy I Need", "For Sun Is Gold", and "Draining Pain". CD
(Out of print. Note that each of these is handmade by Peven – so that the items will have a self-produced, homemade look to them – although the music is great, and that production makes these one of a kind items!)

Eddie HendersonHeritage ... LP
Blue Note, 1976. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Essential work from Eddie Henderson – one of the trumpeter's hippest albums of the 70s, and a key link between his early righteous days and his later smoother sound! The set's a near-perfect blend of all elements involved – tight funky rhythms, spacey soulful instrumentation, and wicked production work from the mighty Skip Drinkwater in the studio – a record that's as essential to his legacy as Gears is to that of Larry Mizell! Henderson's trumpet work is totally great – often muted, and always snakey inside the rhythms – and other players here include Julian Priester on trombone, Hadley Caliman on flute and soprano sax, Patrice Rushen on keyboards, Paul Jackson on bass, and Headhunter Mike Clark on drums. Titles include the excellent groover "Inside You", plus "Kudu", "Acuphuncture", "Time & Space", "Dr Mganga", and "Dark Shadow". LP, Vinyl record album
