Faye Adams/Roy BrownJohnny Lee/Slow Down Little Eva ... 7-inch
Popcorn (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $9.99
One of the rawest tracks we've ever heard from Faye Adams – thanks to this wicked distorted guitar line that snaps along with her vocals – almost bluesy in current, but set to a snapping groove that's totally great! Roy Brown continues the R&B vibe on "Slow Down Little Eva" – a cut that's almost got a jukebox mambo sort of vibe – with a cowbell clanking alongside a vamping piano groove – as Roy's vocals soar with the lyrics! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Roy BrownGood Rocking Tonight – The Best Of Roy Brown ... CD
King/Rhino, Early 50s. Used ... $6.99
Although Roy Brown had a slightly softer edge than some of his King R&B contemporaries – he could definitely rock and wail when he wanted to, as you'll hear on this CD! The folks at Rhino have done a good job of digging through Roy's work at King, pulling together 18 tracks that have a fierce Wynonnie Harris-ish sound to them – no surprise, as King often had Brown and Harris splitting "Battle Of The Blues" albums together! Tracks include "Black Diamond", "Mighty Might Man", "Rockin At Midnight", "Cadillac Baby", "Hard Luck Blues", "Bar Room Blues", "Big Town", "Gal From Kokomo", "Beautician Blues", and the original version of "Good Rockin Tonight", which is a lot rawer than you'd expect!

✨✧ Roy BrownGood Rockin Brown – The King & Deluxe Acetate Sides ... CD
King/Ace (UK), 1947. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the greatest work from the early years of R&B – all presented here with incredible sound, in a collection that also includes 17 never-issued tracks! Roy Brown's music for King Records is the stuff of legend – some of the rawest, raunchiest, most hard-swinging material of the time – on a par with the label's classics by Tiny Bradshaw and Wynonie Harris, but maybe even better overall! And while Roy scored plenty of hits with King, he also spent a hell of a lot of time in the studio during the year 1947, too – recording a number of songs that never made it onto singles – all of which are presented here with stunning sound – as Ace Records went back to the original acetates for all the recordings in the package. Titles include "Lolly Pop Mama", "Special Lesson No 1", "Bye Baby Bye", "I'm The Man Who Sings The Blues", "Farm Town Gal", "My Mama's Boy Friend", "Long About Midnight", "The Gal's Drunk Again", "Whose Hat Is That", and "Looking For A Woman".

Roy AyersLive At The Montreux Jazz Festival (Japanese pressing – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $19.99
A beautiful live set from 1972 – and a very unique album from Roy Ayers' Polydor years! The album originally was never issued in the US – clearly done for a hipper European market at the time – and it's got more of a jazz vibe than some of Roy's other work on Polydor, with sounds that echo back to his earlier years on Atlantic! Yet despite the jazz setting, there's still a nice dose of funk in the mix too – a bit like the vibe that Ayers hit on his Virgo Red album, but leaner too – given that the group's only a quartet. The smaller lineup really allows Roy a lot of space to solo strongly on vibes – and he's also joined by the great Harry Whitaker on electric piano, always a treat in a setting like this. The album features an extended early version of "Move To Groove", plus "In A Silent Way", "Your Cup Of Tea", and "Daddy Bug". Plus, the CD includes some great bonus cuts – like "Thoughts", "He Gives Us All His Love", and "Sketches in Red, Yellow, Brown, Black, and White". CD

✨✧ Duke Ellington & Johnny HodgesSide By Side ... CD
Verve, 1959. Used ... $4.99
A great little session that builds on the strength of Johnny Hodges' small group 50s sessions for Verve – and which lets Duke Ellington in on some of the action! The format is nicely stripped-down throughout – featuring Hodges in sextet and septet formation with players that include Ben Webster, Roy Eldridge, Les Spann, Lawrence Brown, and Jo Jones. And while Duke's actually only on piano on 3 tracks on the album (Billy Strayhorn handles keys on the other 6), the session's still a great example of small combo Ellingtonia at its best! Titles include "Ruint", "Stompy Jones", "Big Shoe", "Going Up", "Just A Memory", and "You Need to Rock". CD

Herb EllisNothing But The Blues (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Verve, 1957. Used ... $9.99
The title's a bit of a shocker – in that that we don't normally think of Herb as a bluesy player – but it's pretty darn honest, given the great sound of this set! Herb's playing in a really mellow and laidback style for this session – working with Roy Eldridge, Stan Getz, Ray Brown, and Stan Levey on a set of bluesy tunes that feature his guitar in the lead, working through some magical solos that are far more expressive than on some of his work on other albums from the time. The record's a genuine surprise, and a real lost Verve treasure – as Ellis steps out with a great tone and some nice rootsy solos on tracks that include "Patti Cake", "Blues For Junior", "Blues For Janet", "Pap's Blues", and "Tin Roof Blues".

Ella Fitzgerald & Jazz At The PhilharmonicJazz At The Philharmonic – The Ella Fitzgerald Set ... CD
Verve, 1949/1954. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Ella Fitzgerald at the height of her powers – heard here on a set of Jazz At The Philharmonic recordings that feature the singer really stretching out in a small group setting! The tracks are all live, and not only feature Fitzgerald charming the crowd with her presence, but also effortlessly hitting the kind of perfect phrasing and timing she always does so well in the studio – maybe even more striking here, given the occasional unbridled energy of the audience. Players include Hank Jones on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Buddy Rich or JC Heard on drums – and the recordings also feature some contributions from Roy Eldridge on trumpet, Charlie Parker on alto, and Lester Young and Flip Phillips on tenor. Tracks come from 1949, 1953, and 1954 JATP performances – and titles include "Lullaby Of Birdland", "Hernando's Hideaway", "Later", "Perdido", "Somebody Loves Me", "Robbin's Nest", "A New Shade Of Blues", "Old Mother Hubbard", "Flying Home", "Oh Lady Be Good", "How High The Moon", "Why Don't You Do Right", and "Bill".

Carlos GarnettCosmos Nucleus ... CD
Muse/Soul Brother (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $16.99
Carlos Garnett really finds his own sound here – and steps into a wonderful blend of funky riffs, spiritual styles, and more – all in one of the most ambitious albums he cut during the 70s! There's a really expansive blend of acoustic and electric instrumentation going on here – played by a large ensemble, but one that's got a nicely focused feel – a groove that really pushes the sound of Garnett's other records with its wide instrumentation, yet which still has all the punch and power of before! Carlos brings in a few slight Caribbean touches – elements he'd experimented with a bit before – and the lineup includes Kenny Kirkland on Fender Rhodes, Roy Campbell and Abdul Malik on trumpets, Al Brown and Charles Dougherty on also sax, Zane Massey and Akum Ra Amen Ra on tenor, Andrew Washington and Cliff Anderson on trombone, Otis McCleary on guitar, Cecil McBee on bass, and Neil Clark and Gene Ballard on percussion. Cheryl P Alexander Sings soulfully at one great spot – the stunning "Mystery Of Ages", which almost feels like a Oneness Of Juju cut – and other titles include "Cosmos Nucleus", "Wise Old Men", "Kafira" and "Bed-Stuy Blues".

Gene Krupa & Buddy RichKrupa & Rich ... LP
Clef, Early 50s. Very Good- ... $11.99
A wonderful meeting of two of the biggest 50s talents on the drums – and a session that's great not only for the expected firey percussion, but also for the horn work by other members on the set! Given the "drum battle" style of the record, the tracks are long and very open – done in a studio mode that recalls some of the Krupa/Rich meetings at JATP, and like the JATP sides, featuring plenty of space for players to take longer solos. Dizzy Gillespie, Illinois Jacquet, Flip Phillips, and Roy Eldridge get in some nice licks on the set – and other players include Oscar Peterson, Herb Ellis, and Ray Brown. Titles include "Gene's Blues", "Bernie's Tune", "Buddy's Blues", and "I Never Knew". LP, Vinyl record album

Masters At Work & OthersHouse Masters – Masters At Work Vol 2 (4CD set) ... CD
Defected (UK), 1990s/2000s. New Copy 4CD ... $23.99 25.98
The title definitely gets it right – as the team of Kenny Dope and Louie Vega are certainly masters of house – as you'll hear in this overstuffed 4CD set! The package brings together 40 tracks that really span the gamut of the duo's genius – from their important early house records, their crucial remixes of tracks for others, and their groundbreaking work during their second chapter – when the Masters At Work name helped bridge a space between older funk and soul, and the freshest sounds of the 21st Century! There's a huge amount here to love – and titles include "I Like (MAW main mix)" by Shanice, "Our Time Is Coming" by MAW with Roy Ayers, "Buddy X (Masters At Work dub 1)" by Nenah Cherry, "Always There (MAW main mix)" by Incognito with Jocelyn Brown, "I Feel Love (Masters At Work 86th Street mix)" by Donna Summer, "When You Touch Me (MAW re-edit)" by Taana Gardner, "You Can Do It (Nuyorican style mix)" by Nuyorican Soul with George Benson, "Star Chasers (Nu Yorican dub)" by 4Hero, "Let It Go (Ken Lou mix)" by Black Magic, "Ten Percent (Ken Lou mix)" by Double Exposure, "See Line Woman (MAW rmx)" by Nina Simone, "Truth Don Die (Masters At Work house version main)" by Femi Kuti, and lots lots more!

Amos MilburnLet's Have A Party! – The Aladdin Recordings ... CD
Aladdin/Rev-Ola (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $8.99 13.99
One of the greatest singers of the postwar R&B era – the amazing Amos Milburn, arguably a huge influence on later rock and soul too! Like a few other key contemporaries – such as Wynonie Harris and Roy Brown – Milburn had a great way of hitting topics that were honest, open, and everyday – tales of boozing and loving delivered with very down to earth lyrics, and a good bit of wit as well. Many tunes feature some great piano lines sewn in nicely alongside the vocals – triplets that really rock the tunes nicely, although often in a gentle sort of way. Titles include "I'm Gonna Tell My Mama", "Long Long Day", "Thinkin & Drinkin", "I'm Still A Fool For You", "One Scotch One Bourbon One Beer", "Tears Tears Tears", "Sax Shack Boogie", "I Love You Anyway", "Ain't Nothing Shaking", "Just One More Drink", "Let Me Go Home Whiskey", "Greyhound", and "Soft Pillow". 29 tracks in all!

Verve, 1957/1959. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $7.99
A late 70s pressing of some classic Verve sides from the 50s, featuring two masters of the tenor, blowing side by side in a couple of small group settings: one with rhythm backing by Oscar Peterson, Herb Ellis, Ray Brown, and Alvin Stoller and the other with Jimmy Jones, Les Spann, Ray Brown and Jo Jones, plus Roy Eldridge and Budd Johnson in the frontline. The best tracks have lots of room – plenty of space so that the tenors aren't butting heads with each other in too close of quarters, with space to express themselves freely. Titles include "Blues For Yolande", "La Rosita", "Shine On Harvest Moon", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "It Never Entered My Mind", "De-Dar", "Time After Time", "Young Bean" and "In A Mellowtone".

Jack WilsonSomething Personal ... CD
Blue Note, 1966. Used ... $9.99
A real treasure through and through – one of the most unusual Blue Note albums you'll ever hear, and a set that's one of the best-remembered from the team of pianist Jack Wilson and vibist Roy Ayers! Long before Roy struck out on his own in the world of funky soul, he worked often in the 60s with Wilson – and the pair have this unique way of blending vibes and piano that's completely fresh, and still unmatched all these many years later! Wilson's natural lyrical style blends with Roy's modal approach to a groove – and the pair soar out in space with these long-flowing lines that make the whole album a treasure. There's no horn players at all – as with Wilson's other small combo Blue Note date – and rhythm is from Varney Barlow on drums, and either Roy Brown or Buster Williams on bass. Titles include a wonderful version of "Sernata", an unusual take on Ornette Coleman's "The Sphinx", and the wonderful Wilson originals "CFD", "Most Unsoulful Woman", and "Harbor Freeway 5pm". CD

Spiritual sounds from the source – a host of incredible tracks from a time when jazz was really opening up into new dimensions – as players stepped forward in a wave of strong post-Coltrane energy to really push the music into the skies! The music here can be seen as a blueprint for generations to come – styles that are now getting new fame in the hands of Kamasi Washington and some of his contemporaries, but which flowered first in recordings like these – pulled from the early 70s vaults of Prestige, Milestone, and Muse Records – and brought together here in a really wonderful collection! Tracks are all nice and long, and the set showcases an older generation of jazz musicians really flowering at the time – balanced perfectly between a sense of freedom and a spiritual soul – on titles that include "Celestial Blues" by Gary Bartz NTU Troop, "Let Us Go To Higher Heights" by Carlos Garnett, "The Almoravid" by Joe Chambers, "Brown Eyes" by Charles Earland, "Warriors Of Peace" by Azar Lawrence, "Aftermath" by Oliver Nelson, "Josie Black" by Hampton Hawes, "Let It Take Your Mind" by Bayete Umbra Zindiko, "Fire" by Joe Henderson and Alice Coltrane, and "The Free Slave" by Roy Brooks.

VariousGlen Brown – Dubble Attack – The Original Pantomine Dee Jay Collection 1972 to 1974 ... CD
Greensleeves, Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
Some of the sharpest dee jay work you'll ever hear from the Jamaican scene of the early 70s – cutting edge MCs from Kingston, all set to massive rhythms from Glen Browns Pantomine label – on tracks that were originally issued in small runs of a few hundred copies! Yet that small circulation doesn't stand as any sort of commentary on the quality of the music – and instead, it reflects the continual movement forward of the Pantomine label – an imprint that was especially tuned to the sounds of the streets and the clubs, which it helped build through the contributions of the voices on these cuts! The rhythms are wonderfully heavy – and the MCs burst out proudly over the top, sometimes with a nice touch of echo – on cuts that include "Dubble Attack" by Big Youth, "Number One In The World" by U Roy, "Rasta On A Sunday" by I Roy, "The Meaning Of One" by Prince Jazzbo, "This Year Fe Rebels" by Godsons, "Father's Call" by Dean Beckford, "Daughter A Whole Lot Of Sugar Down Deh" by Berry Prince Hammer Simpson, and "Butter & Bread" by Lloyd Young.

VariousGussie Clarke – From The Foundation (2CDs/DVD) ... CD
VP, New Copy 2CD & DVD ... $16.99 25.99
Classic work from Jamaican producer Gussie Clarke – a talent who's still going strong after changing the face of reggae for decades – starting out with the flurry of work featured on this set! Clarke's productions were already bubbling under in the early 70s, but definitely came into their own during the roots generation – a stretch that saw Gussie's work in the studio hit great fame on UK shores, and reach a fairly bit international audience here too. Clare's mode is an easygoing one – still with some of the emphasis on bottom sounds that was prevalent in Jamaican music during the period, but also maybe more of a spontaneous presentation of the artists too – as if Gussie was stepping back a few steps, at least in comparison to other Jamaican producers. As the 80s moved on, Clarke also helped lay the groundwork for some of the new sounds of the digital generation – evolving his style a bit, but still allowing the artists the main focus. The result is some excellent work by a range of key talents – including a few variations on some of Clark's bigger cuts – all wrapped up in one overstuffed package! Titles include "Pride & Ambition" by Leroy Smart, "The King & The Pauper" by I Roy, "Loving Pauper" by Gregory Isaacs, "The Higher The Mountain" by U Roy & Big Youth, "To The Foundation" by Dennis Brown & Lennie Hibbert, "Party Time" by Lenny Hibbert, "Pass The Kouchie" by The Mighty Diamonds, "Raggamuffin" by Freddie McGregor & Dennis Brown, and "Pirates' Anthem" by Home T, Cocoa Tea, & Shabba Ranks – and three versions of "Strickly Rockers" – by Augustus Pablo, Big Youth, and both of them together! 2CD set features 34 tracks in all – plus a bonus DVD documentary on Gussie Clarke – From The Foundation!

Some real heavy-hitters from the King Records catalog of the 50s – the kind of hard-edged, strong-burning R&B that the label did so well at the time! Some of the artists here are big names from King's roster of the period – Roy Brown, Wynonie Harris, and Tiny Bradshaw – but the set's also got lots more from singers we've never heard before, and who represent the never-ending stream of genius from King's studios – material that had an undeniable impact on rock and soul in years to come – although given the choice, we'll always go for these originals instead! There's even a few of the heavier hillbilly numbers that King did so well – and tracks include "The Deacon Don't Like It" by Wynonie Harris, "Hollerin & Screamin" by Little Esther, "Chic A Choo Freight" by Bob Newman, "The Walkin Blues" by Fluffy Hunter, "No More Nothin" by Zeb Turner, "Baseball Boogie" by Mabel Scott, "Lies Lies Lies" by Annisteen Allen, "Why Don't You Haul Off & Love Me" by Bullmoose Jackson, "Strollin With Nolen" by Jimmy Nolen, "Seven Nights To Rock" by Moon Mullican, "Voo Ve Ah Bee" by The Platters, "Cool Disc Jockey" by Boyd Bennett & His Rockets, "Miss Shake It" by Ba Ba Thomas, "Come On Come On Come On" by Tiny Topsy, and "Midnight Ramblin Tonight" by H Bomb Ferguson.

5 RoyalesIt's Hard But It's Fair – The King Hits & Rarities ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
An excellent collection of work by The 5 Royales – a 50s vocal group, but one who had a huge impact on soul music in the 60s! The Royales worked in a style that was harder-hitting and a bit more focused than some of their contemporaries – often using the voices in a very rhythmic way that really set the stage for the vocal group sound of the 60s. James Brown was one of a number of artists who claimed huge inspiration from the group – and that feeling is supported strongly in the liner notes by Steve Cropper, Billy Vera, and compiler Tony Rounce – who selected a great batch of 26 tunes that represent the best of the group's work for the King label! Titles include the original version of "Think", plus "Say It", "I Ain't Getting Caught", "Do Unto You", "Behave Yourself", "My Wants For Love", "It Hurts Inside", "Why", "I'm With You", "Dedicated To The One I Love", "Don't Give No More Than You Can Take", "The Slummer The Slum", and "Women About To Make Me Go Crazy".

Linval ThompsonEncounters Pac Man (with bonus LP and poster) ... LP
Greensleeves, 1982. New Copy 2LP ... $24.99
Pac Man has never looked so menacing before – but the cover image might be fitting, given the way the dub versions here rips into the cuts and chomps them down to their barest essence – with the help of the Roots Radics band! The album's a key illustration of that new generation of dub unleashed by Scientist and some of his contemporaries – versions that go way way past the originals, and are often so abstracted, they work together more as dark splatters of noise, with just a slight Kingston undercurrent to tie them to familiar reggae modes. Great stuff throughout – a record that's definitely as compelling as it's cover – and with titles that include "Under Surveillance", "Prince's Wrath", "Space Invaders Regroup", "World Cup Squad Lick Their Wounds", "Vampire Initiative", "Malicious Intent", "The Dark Secret Of The Box", "SOS", "Man Trap", and "Look Out Behind You". This great also includes a bonus LP with original vocal versions by Eek-A-Mouse, Dennis Brown, Linval Thompson, The Viceroys and more – 20 tracks on 2LPs! LP, Vinyl record album

Louie Vega & OthersStarring – XXVIII – Part 1 (3LP set) ... LP
Vega, 2016. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... $36.99
A massive project from the great Louie Vega – a man who's given us plenty of majestic moments since his early years in Masters At Work and Nuyorican Soul – but an artist who's maybe outdone himself here, thanks to help from a huge amount of guests and singers! The "starring" in the title doesn't refer to Louie, but to the key talents who help shape the individual tracks on the set – a talent roster large enough to include Vikter Duplaix, Tony Momrelle, N'Dea Davenport, The Clark Sisters, Winans Brothers, Zara McFarlane, Funkadelic, Jocelyn Brown, Kenny Bobien, Josh Milan, Lisa Fischer, Byron Stingily, Leroy Burgess, Caron Wheeler, and others – all of whom work perfectly with Louie – not in a way that has their talents thrown in for extra spice, but instead very deeply woven into the fabric of Vega's music – in a richly collaborative spirit that makes the album a gem all the way through! All the cuts are in the positive, soulful, inspirational vibe we've always loved in Louie's projects – and titles on this vinyl part 1 include "Gift Of Love", "Angels Are Watching Me", "Ain't That Funkin Hard On You (Louie Vega rmx)", "Elevator", "Dance", "Magical Ride", "A New Day", "Heaven Knows", "Just The Way I Like It", "Gimme Some Love", "Can We Keep This Going", and "See Some Light".

Xanadu All Stars (Al Cohn, Billy Mitchell, etc)Night Flight To Dakar/Xanadu In Africa ... CD
Xanadu, 1980. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
An excellent set of recordings from a unique moment for the Xanadu Records label – an imprint that was carrying the torch of the Prestige label style well into the 70s – also run by that label's old head, Don Schlitten! The tracks here were all recorded live in Dakar – by a tight quintet that features some of the best Xanadu players at the time – both Al Cohn and Billy Mitchell on tenor, plus Dolo Coker on piano, Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and Frank Butler on drums. Mitchell is especially wonderful – an excellent soloist who was often lost in larger groups throughout his career, but who really got the chance to shine in the bigger, more open space of the small group sides. Both he and Cohn blow at some of their best levels for the performances – and titles include "Night Flight To Dakar", "Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying", "Blues Up & Down", "Sweet Senegelese Brown", "Robbins Nest", "Blues In The Closet", "Easy Living", and "The King".

VariousGirls Got Soul – Atlantic Distaff Soul Classics, Rarities, & Unissued Tracks From The 60s ... CD
Atlantic/Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Killer female soul from Atlantic Records – and a tasty set that pushes way past the big hits! There's some excellent work here from some of the lesser-remembered singers on the label from the 60s, or other singers who recorded more famously elsewhere for other labels – and there's also some nice obscure numbers from some of Atlantic's bigger acts, tracks that you might have missed or which have never been issued before. There's a total of 25 tracks that includes "But I Love Him" by Doris Troy, "It's Nice To Know" and "That Hurts" by Rozetta Johnson, "My Man, He's A Lovin Man" by Betty Lavette, "Me & My Baby" by Mary Wells, "Unloved Unwanted Me" by Barbara Lynn, "Sweet Inspiration" by The Sweet Inspirations, "I'm Blue (The Gong Gong Song)" by The Ikettes, "Here He Comes" by Ruth Brown, "I Can't Afford To Lose Him" by Baby Washington, and "You Can't Love Me (In The Midnight Hour)" by Ann Mason with Little Mac & The Boss Sounds.

VariousReal Thing – The Songs Of Ashford, Simpson, & Armstead ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
Mindblowing music from the trio of Nick Ashford, Valerie Simpson, and Jo Armstead – most of it composed and recorded in New York during the mid 60s – before Armstead left for the Chicago scene, and Ashford & Simpson went to work for Motown in Detroit! The three writers have a really beautiful way of putting over a tune – fresh lyrics that are perfect for the budding soul generation of the 60s – and which often get some production work from the members of the trio too, especially on some of the tracks here that were issued by Wand Records. The package does a perfect job of unearthing these early years – pulling together compositions by the three (and occasionally just by Ashford & Simpson) – and illuminating this period with notes that are as thorough as the selection of tracks on the set. Titles include "Dance Children Dance" by Mary Love, "The Shoe Won't Fit" by Betty Everett, "Look Away" by The Shirelles, "Are You Trying To Get Rid Of Me Baby" by The Crystals, "I Don't Need No Doctor" by Sandy Nelson, "Please Little Angel" by Doris Troy, "The Real Thing" by The Chiffons, "Smokie Joe's" by The Jewels, "Say It Again" by Marie Knight, "Looky Looky" by Candy & The Kisses, "Mr Creator" by The Apollas, "You're Absolutely Right" by Tina Britt, "I'm Satisfied" by Chuck Jackson & Maxine Brown, "Cry Like A Baby" by Aretha Franklin, "Same Old Feeling" by Jo Ann & Troy, "Only Your Love Can Save Me" by Betty LaVette, and "Love Ain't What It Used To Be" by The Diplomats.

✨✧ VariousSouthern Funkin' – Louisiana Funk & Soul 1967 to 1979 ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99 24.99
Heavy heavy funk from the Louisiana scene of the late 60s and 1970s – and a great collection that really gets past the dominance of the New Orleans sound! The set moves way past the Crescent City to uncover a wealth of great bits recorded in smaller studios located in Shreveport, Lake Charles, and a variety of tiny scenes in the southwest side of Louisiana – and the result is a great batch of tunes with a really gritty, down-n-dirty sound! There's a wealth of great funky styles in the set – including James Brown-inspired jammers, southern soul burners, and some other great modes that show that Louisiana's got a heck of a lot more to offer than just New Orleans funk. Titles include work from the Anla, Murco, Soul International, Goldband, and Tic Toc labels – a total of 22 cuts that include "Soul Time" by Ernest Thomas, "Soul Feeling (parts 1 & 2)" by Eddy G Giles, "Soul Brothers Testify (part 1)" by Chester Randles Soul Senders, "Soul Power" by Abraham & The Casanovas, "Put It On" by Count Rockin Sidney with The Dukes, "Fix It" by Clifton White & His Royal Knights, "Miss Hard To Get" by Dennis Landry, "No Sad Times" by Johnny Truit, "Black Water Gold" by African Music Machine, and "I Got A Groove" by JJ Callier.

✨✧ Sonny CrissSaturday Morning (with bonus track) ... CD
Xanadu, 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful album from the wonderful reedman Sonny Criss – one of the first albums in his brief stretch of return to recording in the late 70s – and quite possibly the best! Criss has a sound that's completely amazing, right from the start – every bit as sharp toned as in his early years on Imperial, and as full of all the imagination as on his sides for Prestige – but with much deeper feeling, too – this sense of pain and life that makes even the simplest notes extremely powerful – blowing us away like few others players could do with such understated brilliance. The whole thing's perfect – maybe even more so than the Prestige recordings – and backing is by Barry Harris on piano, Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and Lenny McBrowne on drums – a really wonderful group! Titles include the amazing "Saturday Morning" – a track that will really make you fall in love with Sonny all over again – plus "Angel Eyes", "Tin Tin Deo", "Jeannie's Knees", "My Heart Stood Still", and "Until The Real Thing Comes Along". Also includes the bonus track "Confusion". CD

Tramp (Germany), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A legendary label that you may know for its deep soul and blues-drenched work of the 60s – served up here with a special focus on the imprint's funkier tracks and groovers! The Goldband studios were down in Louisiana, not far from New Orleans – but the styles here aren't just the usual Crescent City grooves, and instead also show elements from other southern scenes running from Texas, to Memphis, to Muscle Shoals! The guitar is great on some of the best numbers here – tight and skittish, and really riffing along with the rhythms in a very funky way – and the vocals mix bluesy undercurrents with James Brown funk – and pop and crackle nicely throughout. We'd never heard most of this work before, and this side of Goldband is very new to us – a great discovery – and titles include "Sidewinder" and "Too Much" by The Showboats, "The Warm Up" by Clifton White & His Royal Knights, "Getting Out OF Town" by Lee Bernard, "Double EE Agent" by Charles Greene, "Back Door Man" by Count Rockin Sidney, "Crazy Girl (parts 1 & 2)" by Freddie Love, "Forgive Me" by Dynamic Adam & His Excitements, "Feel Delicious" by Count Rockin Sidney & The Dukes, and "Soul Brothers Testify (parts 1 & 2)" by Chester Randle's Soul Senders.

Pressure Sounds (UK), Mid/Late 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunner of a collection of reggae sides from 1974-1979 – records made during the creative peak of Tommy Cowan's Talent Corporation enterprise – a company engineered by the voice of late 60s rocksteady pioneers the Jamaicans to give exposure to many of the incredible artists that helped lay down the true sound of Jamaica for many years to come! Tommy Cowan formed the Talent Corporation with partners Warwick Lyn and Gayman Alberga to promote local Jamaican music on a level that was being done for the popular artists from the States at the time – with recording sessions mostly produced and arranged by Cowan in his benchmark fashion. Here he's crafted perfect little numbers with innovators such as Jacob Miller, Abyssinians, Augustus Pablo, Dennis Brown, Devon Irons and many more! 20 tracks in all, including the immortal "Jerusalem" (extended version) by Devon Irons, "Love Comes And Goes" by Abyssinians, "Ghetto On Fire" by Jacob Miller, "Mother Country" by Little Madness, "School Tonight" by Desi Roots, "The Way" by Augustus Pablo, "The Road Is Rough" by Leroy Smart, "Life Goes In Circles" by Dennis Brown, "False Rumour" by Two Rasta Man, "False Rumour Version" by King Tubby, "Natty Sings A Hit Song" by Dillinger, "Dub Songs" by Dillinger and King Tubby, and more!

A really well-chosen batch of exotica tunes – one that gets way past the obvious, despite the hit reference of the title – and which follows the genre well into the 60s, through a stream of overlooked album cuts that never fully got their due! The set list is great – and features some surprising currents of jazz and Latin that fit in nicely alongside more island-themed cuts – all with an especially strong focus on artists from the west coast scene, but also some work from other locales as well! Titles include "Those Brown Eyes" by The Coachmen, "Goodbye" by Gordon Jenkins with Marshall Royal, "Algo Sabroso" by Nelson Padron, "In A Sentimental Mood" by Verlye Mills, "Blue Prelude" by Jack Burger, "Caravan" by Dick Hyman, "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles" by Rene Bloch, "Theme From Romeo & Juliet" by Bob Florence, "The Girl From Ipanema" by Rene Paulo, "Begin The Beguine" by Korla Pandit, "My Sweet Sweet" by The Surfers, and "Pink Lady" by Jack Millman.

✨✧ VariousGroovin The Blues – When Groove Was More Than Just A Habit ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer blues from RCA Records' Groove subsidiary – home to its roughest, rawest work in the 50s – and a treasure trove of under-discovered gems! And although these tracks are mostly blues at the core, they often step forth with the power of more upbeat R&B – as artists you might normally associate with more down home sounds get a nice sort of crackle and pop in the Groove Records setting – often just through some slight touches in the backing instrumentation and arrangements, which update their modes to a great mid 50s, soul-drenched vibe! Bear Family have done a great job with the track list here – and have unearthed a number of tracks we've never heard from this stretch on the label – 33 titles that include "Wait Till Next Year Baby" by Big Connie, "I Took You In Baby" by Sonny Terry, "Tain't Right" by Big Tiny Kennedy, "Love Blues" by Clayton Love, "No Nice" by Buddy Lucas, "The Ups" by Champion Jack Dupree, "Goin Back Home" by Cousin Leroy, "You've Been Good To Everybody" by The Du Droppers, "Won't You Forgive Me" by Little Tommy Brown, "I'll Life My Life Alone" by Oscar Black & Sue Allen, and "Beantown Boogie" by Bertrice Reading.

One of James Brown's earliest full albums for King Records – and a set that kicks off with his monstrous reworkin of the tune "Think" – originally recorded by the Five Royales, but recast here by James as the blueprint for all the funky goodness in years to come! That track really sets the scene for the record – and James follows up with some other harder, sharp-edged tunes – offset by a few more deep-burning mellower soul tracks. Other titles include "You've Got The Power", "If You Want Me", "So Long", "Baby, You're Right", "I'll Go Crazy", "Good Good Lovin", and "I Know It's True".

Blazing R&B, slightly more simmering soul, and some rollicking wildcard tunes that split the difference – all on this fantastic second volume in the R&B Singles series from Outta Sight! It's a great collection, culled mostly from the fertile early 60s period when the sound was still strongly rooted in mid-to-late 50s rhythm & blues, yet beginning to lay the groundwork for gritty southern soul and tighter Northern Soul sounds to come. A nice mix of legendary names and lesser known stars alike, with titles that include "Cry To Me" by Solomon Burke, "Come On Baby" by Marie Knight, "Good Enough" by Bobby Guy, "Baby You Can Get Your Gun" by Earl King, "I've Got My Eyes On You" by Marry Clayton, "I Think I Love You" by Helen Troy, "Shake It Up & Go" by John Lee Hooker, "Work Song" by Oscar Brown Jr, "Comin Home Baby" by Mel Torme, "How I Miss You So" by Frances Burnette, "Love Must Be Taboo" by Tony Clarke, and "I Don't Know About You" by Lloyd Nolan.
