Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassBeat Of The Brass ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1968. Used ... $8.99
Beautifully compressed pop from Herb Alpert – a session that's still got the traditional Tijuana Brass style, but which also displays a more restrained, more adult approach to instrumental pop! The rhythms are nicely changed out more than before here – stretching out with interwoven exotic touches and sweeter A&M pop – all coming together at a level that's far more sophisticated than you might guess if you've only got a version of Herb that's reduced to simple cliche! Herb also makes a key vocal appearance on the song "This Guy's In Love With You" – the group's first #1 single, and the beginning of a great run of Alpert vocalizations. Other tracks include "The Robin", "Slick", "Panama", "A Beautiful Friend", "She Touched Me", and "Thanks For The Memory". CD

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassHerb Alpert's Ninth ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1967. Used ... $6.99
Wonderfully jaunty and jagged work from trumpeter Herb Alpert – and a session that has him opening up the Tijuana Brass groove a bit more than usual! There's clearly an influence here of the Brazilian sound that was showing up strongly at A&M Records at the time – heard to greatest effect on the album's version of Chico Buarque's "A Banda", but also in gentler, more subtle ways that seem to emerge in other tunes that trade the group's older sound for one that has more of a bossa sense of subtlety. Also, there's some great A&M pop that's beginning to emerge here too – as in the album's great takes on "The Happening" and "Love So Fine" – both of which really sound beautiful here! Other tracks include "Cowboys & Indians", "Flea Bag", "Love Nest", and "Bud". CD

Mel Torme, Francis Faye, Johnny Hartman, & OthersGeorge Gershwin's Porgy & Bess ... CD
Bethlehem/Shout Factory, 1956. Used 2CD ... $6.99
One of our favorite recordings ever of George Gershwin's Porgy & Bess – done by Bethlehem Records in the mid 50s, and featuring nearly every one of the label's great talents at the time! The choice of the lead characters is a bit odd – as Mel Torme plays Porgy and Francis Faye plays Bess – but both singers are actually pretty darn great for the set, and really bring a lot out of the tunes. Plus, the other artists on the set really keep things interesting – as the collection features vocal performances by Johnny Hartman, Frank Rosolino, Betty Roche, Bob Dorough, and Sallie Blair. Plus, the whole thing's presented as Gershwin wrote it – complete with narration by Al Jazzbo Collins, and a number of strong instrumental passages. Music is performed by groups led by Russ Garcia, Duke Ellington, Pat Moran, and Stan Levy – and players are an array of the best of both the New York and LA scenes at the time! Plus, this great reissue version features a full 29 minute bonus track – the "Porgy & Bess Suite", which is an extended instrumental performed by Russ Garcia. Also comes with a really great 48 page booklet too! CD

✨✧ Johnny Guitar WatsonFunk Beyond The Call Of Duty (expanded edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
DJM/Shout Factory, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Tripped-out funk from Johnny – very much in his "I Got To Ta Ta Ya Baby" mode, with the guitar skipping around keyboards in a mellow Bay Area kind of way! Johnny's gone way way past his bluesy roots here – into a sublime blend of soul and funk that's all crafted with just the right amount of lightly spacey touches. The Watson vocals are totally on the money throughout – sliding into the mix in that seductive way that often has Johnny singing beautifully alongside his guitar. Titles include "It's All About The Dollar Bill", "Funk Beyond The Call Of Duty", "Barn Door", "Love That Will Not Die", 'I'm Gonna Get You Baby", "Give Me My Love", and "It's A Damn Shame". CD also features the previously unreleased bonus cuts "Can You Handle It" and "Virgina's Pretty Funky". CD

✨✧ VariousBlack Power – Music Of A Revolution ... CD
Shout Factory, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massive batch of righteous soul – plus sound bites and calls to action by some of the most pivotal voices of the era! This collection aims to be the soundtrack of an era that called for a revolution, and if the movement didn't wholly ingratiate into American culture, the passion and the music certainly did! The set features well known numbers mixed with some relatively lesser known numbers, together with some of the most fiery dialogue from icons of the Black Power movement. Tracks include "You're The Man" (parts I & II) by Marvin Gaye, "Let's Clean Up The Ghetto" by Philadelphia International All Stars, "Right On" by Sons Of Slum, "Tell It Like It Is" by SOUL, "Give The People What They Want" by the O'Jays, "Blackenized" by Hank Ballard, "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised by Gil Scott-Heron, "My People. . .Hold On" by Eddie Kendricks, "I Am Somebody" (Part 2) by Johnnie Taylor, "We Got More Soul" by Dyke & The Blazers and tons more, plus sound bites by Huey Newton, Kathleen Cleaver, Stokely Carmichael, H Rap Brown and Malcolm X. 38 tracks on two CDs!

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassGoing Places ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1965. Used ... Out Of Stock
Herb Alpert's definitely Going Places by the time of this set – and his trademark Tijuana Brass sound proves itself to be a great fit for just about any sort of number! The album kicks off with the wonderful "Tijuana Taxi", a sublimely jaunty tune that almost takes Herb into Bacharach territory – and which is followed up by the even-greater "Spanish Flea" – an ear-popping anthem that's one of the greatest bits of 60s instrumental pop ever recorded! And over and above those two tunes, the album's still got plenty more to offer too – a wonderful array of tracks all given the Tijuana touch, with titles that include "More & More Amor", "Mae", "Walk Don't Run", "Felicia", and "Cinco De Mayo". CD

✨✧ Instant FunkWitch Doctor (2LP DJ version) ... LP
Salsoul, 1979. Very Good- 2LP ... $11.99
An album of tribal brilliance from Instant Funk – and a set that really has the group coming into their own! Instant Funk got their start as a backing combo for other acts on the Philly scene, but by the time of this classic album for Salsoul, they'd turned into a more fully-fledged group – sporting a great lead singer in James Carmichael, who worked great with their style of blending funky club and soul! The lead vocals here are stronger than before from the group – but their instrumentation is also razor-sharp too – honed to perfection through great arrangements from trumpeter Larry Davis, and focused strongly through super-studio help from producer Bunny Sigler, engineer Bob Blank, and remixer Larry Levan – who added a little extra punch to a few of the best cuts. Titles include "Witch Doctor", "I Had A Dream", "Bodyshine", "Slap Slap Lickedy Lap", "I Want To Love You", and "Scream & Shout". LP, Vinyl record album
(Special 2LP DJ-only version! Cover has a factory sticker & some moderate wear.)
