VariousRolling With The Punches – The Allen Toussaint Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Heavy funk, deep soul, and lots lots more – an amazing testament to the songwriting skills of New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint! Allen was a heck of a singer on his own – but he also worked plenty behind the scenes in the 60s and 70s – lending his tunes to many others, and producing a good number of recordings as well – some of the best of which are featured in this sweet little set! The package features two dozen smoking tunes from the pen of Toussaint – songs that are heavy on influences from New Orleans soul and funk – already sounding great in the hands of other soul singers in the collection, and really helping transform the style of other artists in ways you might not expect. The whole thing's got the same righteous vibe as Allen's best records from the 70s – and titles include "I'll Be Rolling" by Millie Jackson, "Hercules" by Boz Scaggs, "Occapella" by Lee Dorsey, "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by Solomon Burke, "Sweet Touch Of Love" by Irma Thomas, "Sneakin Sally Thru The Alley" by Robert Palmer, "What Do You Want The Girl To Do" by Lowell George, "Shoo Rah" by Frankie Miller, "Fortune Teller" by Benny Spellman, "Freedom For The Stallion" by Bill Medley, "Whoever's Thrilling You" by ZZ Hill, "Tampin" by The Rhine Oaks, "A Certain Girl" by Warren Zevon, and even "Southern Nights" by Glen Campell.

✨✧ Vinegar JoeVinegar Joe (with bonus track) ... CD
Island/Universal (Japan), 1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
The cover's a bit cartoony, but the group's got a nicely down to earth sound – a UK blend of roots rock and deeper blues currents – but served up in that 70s style that takes all the best elements way past their familiar incarnations! The group sports two singers – a young Robert Palmer and female vocalist Elkie Brooks – and although Palmer would soon emerge as a more pop-oriented artist, he's got plenty of soulful chops here – but maybe still only second to Elkie, who soars out with the sort of inspiration that must have touched Janis Joplin as well. Titles include "Circles", "Leg Up", "See The World", "Never Met A Dog", "Live A Little Get Somewhere", and "Avinu Malkenu". CD
(Part of the "Golden Era Of Rock – 1965 to 1975" series!)

✨✧ VariousFree Soul Universe ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Mindblowing music from this always-great series – an incredible batch of tracks that we might never have thought to put together in one set – but which really sound wonderful together! This set features some of the odder moments in the Free Soul series – crossover tracks that actually played (and still play) with the soul crowd, even though the history books won't ever give them a mention! Titles include "Good Morning To You" by Lexia, "What Have You Done For Love?" by Hodges James & Smith, "Life It Up" by Jermain Jackson, "My Eyes Only" by Rare Earth, "Thank You" by Alma Faye, "Every Kinda People" by Robert Palmer, "I Like London In The Rain" by Blossom Dearie, "It's Great To Be Here" by The Jackson Five, "Never Knew Love Like This Before" by Stephanie Mills, "We Can Make It If We Try" by Alton McClain & Destiny, "Come On Eileen" by Dexy's Midnight Runners, "Do It Yourself" by Gloria Gaynor, "Throughout Your Years" by Kurtis Blow, and "I'm A Winner" by Smoke Sugar.

✨✧ VariousDavid Hepworth's Deep 70s – Underrated Cuts From A Misunderstood Decade (4CD set) ... CD
Edsel (UK), 1970s. New Copy 4CD ... Out Of Stock
A very cool little set – maybe not the deepest dive into the decade of the 70s, in that the package isn't full of unissued tracks or super-rare singles – but it does represent a great look at the decade that goes way past the hits, and much farther than the charts – including the sort of material that was slightly ignored at the time, but has gone on to be really appreciated in more recent years! The book-style set is filled with great choices and unusual tunes – work from both the US and UK scenes, some of it by bigger names represented here by more unusual cuts – some by others who barely cracked the mainstream, but did some great work at the time. There's one full CD of female artists, and a pretty unusual mix of titles – 71 titles in all, by artists who include Murray Head, The Records, Ronnie Lane, Terry Reid, Sandy Denny, Wendy Waldman, Freddie King, Montrose, Tim Buckley, Don Nix, Jerry Williams, Big Star, Tony Joe White, Delaney & Bonnie, John Prine, Michael Franks, Bobby Charles, Andy Pratt, Hirth Martinez, Robert Palmer, Jess Roden, Roy Harper, Patto, Sharks, The Roches, Linda Lewis Valerie Carter, and many others!

✨✧ VariousNew Waves – 45 Original 45's From The Post Punk Era ... CD
Family (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
We love this set – and we don't care who knows it! As you might guess from the title, the collection brings together an assortment of key singles from the late 70s and early 80s post-punk years – but not the scratchy, arty, academic stuff we're supposed to remember fondly – nor the crossover hits that were a bit too tired even then – and instead a great smattering of catchy groovers in a range of different styles, really showing the musical diversity of the years through a blend of bigger hits and lesser-remembered gems! There's something of a focus on dancefloor-friendly tracks here, but that doesn't mean that all of the tunes are groovers – which is something we can appreciate, given the range of work included here. And at a total of 45 tracks in all, there's plenty of room for bits that we'd really overlooked at the time – or have forgotten in years gone by, even though they made something of a ripple way back when. Titles include "Cool For Cats" by Squeeze, "Echo Beach" by Martha & The Muffins, "You'll Always Find Me In The Kitchen At Parties" by Jona Lewie, "Da Da Da" by Trio, "A New England" by Billy Bragg, "If The Kids Are United" by Sham 69, "Back Of My Hand" by The Jags, "Johnny & Mary" by Robert Palmer, "Will You" by Hazel O'Connor, "Jilted John" by Jilted John, "Where's Captain Kirk" by Spizzenergi, "Babylon's Burning" by The Ruts, "I Am The Beat" by The Look, "Pop Muzik" by M, "Tom Hark" by The Piranhas, and "Girls Talk" by Dave Edmunds.

Electric PrunesThen Came The Dawn – The Complete Recordings 1966 to 1969 (Electric Prunes/Underground/Mass In F Minor/Release Of An Oath/Good Old Rock & Roll/Shadows/Stockholm 67/bonus tracks) (6CD set) ... CD
Reprise/Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 6CD ... $54.99 74.99
A huge collection of work from one of the most enigmatic groups of the 60s – all of their classic albums for Reprise, plus rare material too! First up is the self-titled Electric Prunes set, in stereo and mono - an early moment of genius from The Electric Prunes – and exactly the kind of record that shows why they were a cut above their contemporaries, and why Warner really backed them strongly right from the start! There's a depth here that rivals some of the group's Sunset Strip contemporaries – and although David Axelrod's not working with them on the record, there's still lots of dark corners and sharp edges – really thoughtful sounds that are spun out wonderfully on fuzzy guitars and organ, with some nicely subtle drums in the rear. Tracks include "I Has Too Much To Dream (Last Night)", "Try Me On For Size", "Get Me To the World On Time", "About A Quarter To Nine", and "Luvin". Next are mono and stereo presentations of Underground – a record that has the Electric Prunes are arranging themselves, and have production from Dave Hassinger. The tracks are shorter than on some of their Axelrod albums, but they're also showing a sophistication that makes the material really compelling – mixing together psyche and garage roots into a sophisticated document that points at the tremendous growth that was going on around them in the rock world. Tracks include "The Great Banana Hoax", "Wind Up Toys", "Dr. Do-Good", "Hideaway", and "Capt. Glory". Next are stereo and mono versions of Mass In F Minor – a beautifully baroque batch of tracks, written and arranged for the Electric Prunes by the great David Axelrod – a really groundbreaking mix of modes that had quite an impact back in the late 60s! The record shows Axelrod's perpetual fascination with the spiritual – mixed with that great modern style of funk that he was forging at Capitol during the late 60s. The record's not really preachy, nor is it proggy. It's more of a complex blueprint of rock, jazz, funk, and touches of soul – all hung together on the same sort of "mass" structure that Axelrod would later use with Cannonball and on his own. Titles include "Kyrie Eleison", "Gloria", "Benedictus", and "Sanctus". Release Of An Oath is the second album done by David Axelrod for The Electric Prunes – and arguably the best! The album's a bit unusual, in that none of the original Prunes were actually working on the session – and instead, Axlerod's almost fully at the helm – putting together the set in a way that's quite similar to his own solo albums over at Capitol! As with those, there's a bold, spacious sort of instrumentation here – richly orchestral, but also quite funky at times – punctuated by great drums from Earl Palmer, bass from Carol Kaye, keyboards from Don Randi, and guitar from Howard Roberts – who's really tripping out nicely here! The work uses the Jewish Kol Nidre mass as its conceptual locus – but really takes off with plenty of tripped-out Axelrod flourishes that make the whole thing a fair bit more psychedelic than anything you'd ever hear in temple. Titles include "Holy Are You", "The Adoration", "Our Father, Our King", "Kol Nidre", and "General Confessional". On Just Good Old Rock & Roll, The Electric Prunes get back to basics – as you might guess from the title – shaking off some of the larger, more ambitious modes of their albums with David Axelrod, yet still retaining a nicely trippy sound overall! The lineup of the group has shifted a bit – hence their billing as "the new improved" Electric Prunes – but although things are stripped-down and simple, there's still some amazing music on the record – a blend of guitar, flute, organ, and vocals that flows along wonderfully with some unusual sounds that we wouldn't expect! And while there's certainly a bit of "good old rock and roll" going on here on a few more straightforward songs, it's not like the album's Let It Be or anything like that – because the group are really more just getting back to the garagey psych of their roots, but doing it a bit better than before! Titles include "Sell", "14 Year Old Funk", "Love Grows", "Giant Sunhorse", "Silver Passion Mine", "Sing To Me", "Tracks", and "Finders Keepers Losers Weepers". CD then features two more CDs – CD5 is shadows, with 19 rare tracks, including singles and even a radio spot – and CD6 features their famous live set from 1967, recorded in Stockholm – plus four demo recordings by Jim & The Lords.
