✨✧ Jimi HendrixJimi Hendrix Experience – Smash Hits ... LP
Reprise, Late 60s. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
One of those "greatest hits" of Greatest Hits collections – as Smash Hits has come to be regarded by many as a key entry in the cannon of classic rock – thanks to tremendous work from Jimi, bassist Noel Redding, and drummer Mitch Mitchell! Every track here is a gem – definitely the "smash" promised in the title, as the record's filled with Hendrix treasures that include "Purple Haze", "Fire", "The Wind Cries Mary", "Stone Free", "Crosstown Traffic", "All Along The Watchtower", "Red House", "Foxy Lady", and "Hey Joe". LP, Vinyl record album
(Tan label stereo pressing, MSK 2025. Cover has some general wear and a spot of tape.)

James BrownGrits & Soul ... LP
Smash, 1964. Very Good+ ... $39.99
One of the grooviest of the James Brown instrumental albums recorded for Smash. Unlike some of the other weaker albums on Smash, this one's got a great batch of material, most of which are originals, and not weak covers of pop tunes. Plus, the tracks are longer than usual, which gives the band a lot of time to stretch out and get really groovy. Tracks include "Grits", "There", "Wee Wee", and "Mister Hip". Very groovy! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original stereo red label pressing with deep groove – a nice copy!)

James BrownHandful Of Soul ... LP
Smash, 1966. Very Good+ ... $29.99
One of the best of Brother James' instrumental records for Smash, and a record that has him out front, wailing at the organ. While James has never been one of the true virtuosos of the instrument, he plays with a sense of style and adventure that make his best LPs sing with energy. This one's got a lot of nice original cuts, including "Hot Mix", "Oh! Henry", "Get Loose", and "The King". Nice grooves, and a very solid backing by Nat Jones and the James Brown Band. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light wear, and a small name in pen.)

Renaldo DominoI'm Hip To Your Game/You Don't Love Me No More ... 7-inch
Smash, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $34.99
Sweet sweet soul from Chicago's unsung genius! "Hip To Your Game" is a wonderful blend of strings and falsetto vocals – slowly unfolding with a soft magic that makes us wonder why Renaldo wasn't one of the biggest singers of his time. "You Don't Love Me" is more upbeat, bringing Renaldo's vocals a bit deeper – very much in the best loping Chi-soul mode of the 60s – with a really great little groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(White label promo. Vinyl has some marks that click a bit at the beginning of each side.)

✨✧ Walker BrothersSun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore ... LP
Smash, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A seminal album from the mighty Walker Brothers – the group that featured the young Scott Walker before he leapt out onto his legendary solo career! The style here is a bit different than Scott's solo work – or maybe like his first two albums, a bit – a mix of Brill Building pop and soul influences, the latter of which really make the music great – as Scott, Gary, and John Walker (not related – not even their real names!) work with some great American tunes from both sides of the fence, and really make magic – thanks to top-shelf production that echoes a Phil Spector mode, and which cements the mix of soul and pop at a level that made them huge in the UK beat scene of the 60s. Titles include the classic "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore", plus "Everything's Gonna Be All Right", "Don't Fight It", "Take It Like A Man", "I Need You", "My Love Is Growing", "Young Man Cried", "People Get Ready", and "After The Lights Go Out". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono red label pressing with deep groove.)

Jimmy CastorFrom The Roots ... LP
Paul Winley/Demon (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 27.99
Killer early soul from Jimmy Castor – material that's mostly from the years before his better-known Smash Records and RCA sides – done in a wickedly-grooving style! The work here is a mix of upbeat dancefloor numbers and mellower harmony cuts – and even at this early stage, Castor's clearly a powerhouse in soul – really able to get his bag together, and deliver a tune with a tightness that's totally great – especially given that the Winley Records production still keeps an edge in the music that's plenty darn raw! There's plenty of charm, and a great sense of variety in the tunes – and titles include "Poor Loser", "Block Party", "Soul Sister", "Rattle Snake", "It's OK", "A Dream Affair", "Oh Susanna", and "Hangin Out". LP, Vinyl record album

Frank McDonald & Chris RaeMean & Dirty ... LP
De Wolfe (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 22.98
A killer set from the legendary De Wolfe sound library of the 70s – a record that's got all the badass cop/crime vibe you'd expect from its shooting gallery target on the cover! The tracks are nice and lean – cop show funk, but without fuller orchestrations – so that you can really concentrate on the funky drums, basslines, guitar riffs, and keyboard parts – plus some occasional moogy moments that spice things up in a mighty nice way! The whole thing's great – maybe as strong as any of the classic crime soundtracks of the 70s – and the set features 20 titles that include "Flying Squad", "Bank Job", "Slow Fuse", "Moving Target", "Dragster", "Night Moves", "Mind's Eye", "Smash & Grab", "Fast Mover", "Prowler", "Route 67", and "Easy Drive".

✨✧ PrinceAround The World In A Day ... LP
Paisley Park, 1985. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $29.99
A mad bit of soul psychedelia from Prince – a record that sounds better and better over the years, and which stands out from most of his 80s work thanks to some really unique production and songwriting! After Purple Rain, Prince did anything but wince in the face of living up to such a massive crossover smash – and if Around The World didn't move nearly as many units, it stands pretty tall these days. A mix of Revolution pop funk & soul, with a more swirling, self consciously psychedelic pop. Titles include the hit "Raspberry Beret", "Paisley Park" (with melody so strong, no wonder Prince held onto the name for other ventures) plus "Around The World In A Day", "America", "Temptation", "Pop Life", and "Condition Of The Heart". LP, Vinyl record album

Public EnemyWhat You Gonna Do When The Grid Goes Down? ... LP
Def Jam, 2020. New Copy Gatefold ... $24.99 29.99
Public Enemy gave us plenty of knowledge and power back in the day – and we maybe need their message more than ever in 2020 – a year that marks their return to their original home at Def Jam! The group have help from plenty of guests here – maybe more so than they would have had back in the day, but very much in keeping with the legacy they inspired – in a lineup that includes Questlove, DJ Premier, Cypress Hill, Impossebulls, Black Thought, Nas, YG, Run DMC, Mike D, Ad Rock, and even George Clinton! The tunes have plenty of old school PE vibes – and titles include "Go At It", "Rest In Beats", "RIP Blackat", "Grid", "State Of The Union", "Toxic", "Yesterday Man", "Fight The Power Remix 2020", "Beat Them All", and "Smash The Crowd".

Charlie RichI'm So Lonesome I Could Cry (aka Sings Country & Western) (with bonus download) ... LP
Hi Records/Fat Possum, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 18.99
An overlooked gem by the great Charlie Rich – an album recorded for Hi Records in the years before he broke big on Columbia in the late 60s – but at a level that certainly points the way towards his country fame to come! And yet, as with most of the best music by Rich – like his stunning Smash Records sides – there's a quality here that's quite far from both the mainstream, and conventional modes of expression – as Charlie almost seems to be drawing as much on soul music for inspiration as he is the sounds of Nashville – which might almost put this album in the territory of classic country soul material by singers like Ray Charles or Brook Benton. The whole thing's a perfect setting for that unique combination of talents that makes Rich so wonderful – and most tracks are Hank Williams hits, but redone completely. Titles include "I Can't Help It", "My Heart Would Know", "Take These Chains From My Heart", "Your Cheatin Heart", "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry", "Cold Cold Heart", and "Nobody's Lonesome For Me". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousRojac Story – The Best Of Rojac & Tayster ... LP
Rojac, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $18.99 19.98
Funky sounds from the Harlem scene – an incredibly rich collection of work from the Rojac and Tayster labels – a set so massive, it's like finding a box of rare funky 45s and deep soul singles in the back of some old record store! The package offers up way more work than we might have expected from our knowledge of a few key funk classics from the labels – a treasure trove of under-discovered gems from the grittiest years of the New York scene – most of them cut in the pre-disco years, with raw edges that almost feel more like southern soul and funk than other work from the Big Apple! Vinyl version has 30 tracks on 2LPs: "Tuesday's Child" by Kim Tolliver, "Quittin' Time" by Big Maybelle, "Something Special About My Baby" by Clarence Reid, "I Love My Baby" by International GTOs, "No Better For Ya" by Jo Armstead, "What's My Chances" by Chuck Flamingo, "Get In My Bag" by Curtis Lee & The KCPs, "Lovin Lies" by Third Guitar, "This & That" by Jo Armstead, "Don't Lose Your Groove" by Lavell Hardy, "Nwanne Nwanne Nwanne" by Aleke Kanonu & Tolbert The Miracle Man, "Smash" by Damn Sam The Miracle Man, "Baby Don't Cry" by Third Guitar, and "Whip Ya" by Chuck A Luck & The Lovemen Ltd.

Anthemic early 90s rock from Pearl Jam – one of the biggest debuts of all time and for good reason! Ten has a big, classic rock-reared sound, but done with such forthright sincerity and for the time, completely refreshing lack of macho posturing, it really was the perfect formula for a breakout smash in its era and it's worthy of its legacy – especially in retrospect! One classic song after another including "Once", "Alive", "Jeremy", "Why Go", "Black", Release", "Porch", "Oceans", "Garden", "Deep" and "Release". LP, Vinyl record album

Elektra/Blackened, 1991. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Metallica's breakout smash, the album that catapulted the band and the thrash metal genre to the top of the charts. While the production shines just a little brighter then the first few albums, the band is far from extinguishing their torch as metal trailblazers – to this point, there's very few songs as heavy as "Enter Sandman" got into regular airplay rotation and the most of the album hits even harder, even as they fully embraced the more melodic capabilities they barely touched on in the past. Includes "Enter Sandman", "Sad But True", "Nothing Else Matters", "Don't' Tread On Me", "Holier Than Thou" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jukka Eskola Soul TrioSteamy ... LP
Timmion (Finland), 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An excellent group, and one with a really great concept – a fresh take on a format that was big in the 60s soul jazz scene, but spun out in a very unique way – both in terms of instrumentation, and in terms of the groove! Trumpeter Jukka Eskola heads the trio, which also features Hammond from Mikko Heleva and drums from Toppo Makynen – a mode that was more famously used in tenor/organ combos, like the match of Don Patterson and Sonny Stitt on Prestige Records – but which has never been found in this format before! The trumpet turns out to be a great sound in the frontline, and is given some changed-up rhythms here to work with – not straight soul jazz or funk, and instead a mixture of complicated elements that move the tunes throughout a great range of grooves and colors – really showing all the wonderful sounds that Jukka's been capable of giving us over the years. Titles include "Stick Of A Branch", "Jongo Street", "Tiny B", "Old Stories", "Smash", "Five On Three", and "Steamy". LP, Vinyl record album

One of Mose's best albums for Atlantic – an ambitious session that features larger arrangements backing him up, making for a much fuller sound than on other records! The album includes a greatly grooving version of "Wild Man On The Loose" – done with this cool sneaky organ – and lots of the other tracks feature strong horn parts that flesh out the sound, and give a nice edge to Mose's vocals. Other titles include "On The Run", "Somebody Gotta Move", "No Exit", "I'm Smashed", and "Hello There Universe". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousThis Ain't Chicago – The Underground Sound Of UK House & Acid 1987 to 1991 ... LP
Strut (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
This ain't Chicago, but the sound here owes plenty to the Windy City as well – as the collection documents an amazing criss-crossing of cultural modes that occurred when early UK house musicians took the sound of the underground into the bigger British club scene! In a way, this music's a third chapter in a journey that began when the post-disco American underground were digging the styles of the British electronic generation – then began to craft their own music with early house productions from Chicago and Detroit. These rose in such popularity with UK listeners, that by the end of the 80s, the grooves reversed themselves, and flowed back over the Atlantic – inspiring musicians like these to take the best elements of American house music, particularly Chicago acid, and push it even further into something new! And while the generation yielded plenty of lame tracks and crossover pop, this set shows the real deal – those excellent initial singles that made digging UK singles almost as great as US ones, at least for a brief while. 2LP package features 10 titles that include "Take Me High (mansion mix)" by Colm III, "Show Me What You Got (acid mix part 1)" by SLF, "Jealousy & Lies" by Julian Jonah, "Where's The Love Gone (rmx)" by Julie Stapleton, "Safety Zone" by Exocet, "Pressure Dub" by Ability II, "1666 (pyro-maniac mix)" by MD Emm, "Free To Be" by Window Smashers, "Twin Tub" by Return Of The Living Acid, and "Crashing" by Baby Ford. LP, Vinyl record album
