Herb AlpertFandango ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1982. Used ... $8.99
A sweet Latin-styled set from trumpeter Herb Alpert – but one that's got a very different vibe than his faux Latin grooves of the 60s! The set here is done with key contributions from both Juan Carlos Calderon as a songwriter, and Jose Quintana as a producer – both talents who really help Herb reshape his groove in a mighty nice way! Backings are big, and somewhat smooth – as in the "Rise" era – but there's also some Latin jazz elements in the mix too, and an overall approach that isn't nearly as cluttered as you might expect for the time – with an especially strong emphasis on Herb's trumpet solos in the lead. The set was the first issued on the A&M Latin label – AyM Discos – and also features a bit of Spanish language vocals as well. Titles include "Fandango", "Route 101", "Angel", "Aria", "Sugarloaf", "Coco Loco", "Latin Medley", "California Blues", and "Push & Pull". CD

John ColtraneJohn Coltrane – The Bethlehem Years (Winner's Circle/Art Blakey Big Band) ... CD
Bethlehem/Shout Factory, 1957. Used 2 CDs ... $5.99
The complete recordings done by John Coltrane for Bethlehem Records – mostly cut during December of 1957, and issued on the albums The Winner's Circle and Art Blakey Big Band! Both albums were a bit unusual for the label – in that The Winner's Circle was sort of a blowing/jam session type record, cut with some of the big poll winners of the year, but with shorter tracks than the usual Prestige-styled set of that nature. The lineup includes Donald Byrd, Al Cohn, Eddie Costa, Oscar Pettiford, and Philly Joe Jones – and Coltrane's a bit buried in the group, but gets out some nice licks from time to time. The second set of tracks was recorded for a unique big band session led by Art Blakey – featuring a core group with Coltrane, Donald Byrd, Walter Bishop Jr, and Wendell Marshall on some tracks – plus a larger lineup on a number of others. The CD brings together a whopping 27 tracks from these sessions, including some great alternate takes – and titles include "Midriff", "Tippin", "The Outer World", "The Kiss Of No Return", "Pristine", and "Oasis" – a previously unreleased track!

Mel Torme, Francis Faye, Johnny Hartman, & OthersGeorge Gershwin's Porgy & Bess ... CD
Bethlehem/Shout Factory, 1956. Used 2CD ... $8.99
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
(Out of print. Includes original slipcase and book.)

✨✧ DVDDecline Of Western Civilization (4DVD box set) ... DVD
Slash/Shout Factory, 1980. New Copy 4DVDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The groundbreaking, gnarly to this day Decline Of Western Civilization documentaries by Penolope Spheeris – all three full length films from 1981, 1988 and 1998, together in a 4 DVD set for the first time ever! The first one a legendary chronicle of the late 70s/early 80s LA punk scene, not only showing the nihilistic lifestyle of the most notorious figures, but it's also a treasure trove of REALLY wild live performance footage by some of the greatest punk bands ever – with X, Fear, The Germs, Circle Jerks, Black Flag and more. Part II is equally treasured for its portrait of the late 80s sleazy sunset strip metal scene. Part III is a lesser seen chapter, but it might be the best film of the three, shining a light on the late 90s homeless punk population. The box set comes with a 40 page book and a bonus DVD with commentary, unseen footage, interviews and performances, vintage photos, trailers and more. DVD

✨✧ James BrownLive At The Boston Garden – Extended Edition (DVD) ... DVD
Shout Factory, 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A legendary concert from the Godfather Of Soul – James Brown's monumental performance in Boston on the day after the shooting of Martin Luther King – credited with holding back riots in the city! The DVD presents the full classic concert in its entirety – along with additional audio from the simulcast at points when there was no image – making for the complete picture of this historic musical moment, easily one of the hippest soul concerts of the 60s. The performance is introduced by the mayor of Boston – who was on stage for the event – and titles include "That's Life", "Try Me", "I Got The Feelin", "Please Please Please", "Maybe The Last Time", "Cold Sweat/Ride The Pony", "I Can't Stand Myself", "There Was A Time", and "Get It Together". Best version of the concert ever issued – about 130 minutes long, with missing footage and several performances unseen for decades! DVD

✨✧ Johnny Guitar WatsonReal Mother For Ya (expanded edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
DJM/Shout Factory, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
Johnny Guitar Watson at the top of his game – working here in a sublime mix of funk, blues, and soul – all crafted into a groove that was uniquely Watson's own! Johnny may have started the 70s in relative obscurity – down from some hit work in the 50s and 60s – but by the time of this set, he was back on top, and working in a confident groove that few others from his older era could ever hope to achieve! There's a youthful sense of sex and soul that run through the entire set – an effortlessly slinky groove that never goes too over the top in the funk department, and which makes just the right use of electric instrumentation and tripped-out production, but never gets too wrapped up in either – and often comes off with some great jazzy touches as well. Titles include the anthemic "Real Mother For Ya", plus "Your Love Is My Love", "The Real Deal", "Tarzan", "I Wanna Thank You", and "Lover Jones". CD also features 2 previously unissued bonus tracks – "Kathaline" and "De John's Delight". CD

✨✧ James BrownIt's A Mother (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
King/Culture Factory, 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A definite mother from James Brown – the kind of all-funky album that few of his contemporaries could ever hope to match! If you've ever doubted the sheer raw power of James at the end of the 60s, the first few notes of this one will definitely make you a convert – and the stretched-out grooves as the album rolls on will pull you even further into the fold. Most tracks roll on with that improvised studio jamming style that James was hitting at the time – a pre-JBs mode that's not as long as later years, but which still makes you feel that there probably was plenty more recorded on the dates that didn't make it into the two-part versions of the tracks! And although James is singing on most numbers, the real focus is more on the band – hitting hard, vamping sharp, and grooving massively under shouted calls and directions from Brown. Titles include two great instrumentals – "Popcorn With a Feeling" and "Top of the Stack" – plus "Little Groove Maker Me (parts 1 & 2)", "Mother Popcorn (parts 1 & 2)", "Mashed Potato Popcorn (parts 1 & 2)", "Any Day Now", "You're Still Out Of Sight", and "I'm Shook" – as well as the great mellower number "If I Ruled The World" – redone here as an African-American anthem of pride and power!
