VariousDoes Anybody Know I'm Here? – Vietnam Through The Eyes Of Black America 1962 to 1972 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A great follow-up to the Soldier's Sad Story collection on Kent – and like that one, a mindblowing collection of soul music from the Vietnam era! The CD is like finding a few lost pages in the history books on the war – as it represents a lesser-heard voice from the time, and a really unusual take on the conflict that strained America in the 60s and the 70s. While some of the songs are quite explicit in their meaning, the more unusual thing about the collection is the way that many of the tunes present their opinions in a more submerged way – as general themes of loss, disenfranchisement, and longing that take on whole new meaning when brought together in a collection like this. The quality of the set is really great, with full notes on the material to document their selection and connection – and the CD features a total of 23 tracks that include "Don't Cry My Soldier Boy" by Thelma Houston, "Am I Ever Gonna See My Baby Again" by The Sweet Inspirations, "I Should Be Proud" by Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, "Vaya Con Dios/Fellows In Vietnam" by Inez & Charlie Foxx, "Open Letter To The President" by Roy C, "Welcome The Boys Back Home" by Bill Moss & The Celestials, "War" by The Temptations, "Soldier's Goodbye" by William Bell, "A Soldier's Prayer 1967" by Archie Bell & The Drells, "Please Uncle Sam" by The Charmels, "Please Mr President" by King Solomon, "Does Anybody Know I'm Here" by The Dells, and "A Letter From My Son" by Melverine Thomas.

Serge GainsbourgCasino De Paris 1985 ... CD
Universal (France), New Copy ... About January 29, 2016 (delayed)
A previously-unreleased live performance from Serge Gainsbourg – recorded in the mid 80s, and presented here in a nicely expanded package! Serge is right at his Love On The Beat period here – working with some groovy arrangements that could cross over a bit to the dancefloor, and which are performed here by a tight stage combo with a mix of electric elements and jazzy touches – all of which leave plenty of room for the mighty Gainsbourg to stand firmly out front. The amazing thing is that, even in such a live setting, Serge manages to sing with that often-whispered style that's so great – that up-close approach that can really underscore the sex and sleaze in his music. The set includes versions of some Gainsbourg classics, mixed with later numbers – and titles include "Marilou Sous La Niege", "Harley David Son Of A Bitch", "La Javanaise", "Initials BB", "Sorry Angel", "Nazi Rock", "Bonnie & Clyde", "Lola Rastaquoere", "I'm The Boy", "Lemon Incest", "No Comment", and "Micky Maousse".

Cannonball AdderleyCannonball Adderley's Fiddler On The Roof ... CD
Capitol, Mid 60s. Used ... $4.99
Once again, Cannon proves that it's not the song, it's the singer! This set of tunes from the hit musical Fiddler On The Roof should be schmaltzy – but thanks to the quality of the group (a great sextet with Nat Adderley, Charles Lloyd, Joe Zawinul, Sam Jones, and Louis Hayes), and thanks to some hip production from David Axelrod, the album really sparkles! The tones of Cannon and Lloyd are great together – and the make the best songs sound like strange Eastern-tinged jazz numbers. Tunes include "To Life", "Fiddler On The Roof", "Cajvalach", "Sewing Machine", "Matchmaker", and "Now I Have Everything". CD features 4 bonus tracks too – "Little Boy With The Sad Eyes", "Goodbye Charlie", "Island Blues", and "Sweet Georgia Bright". CD

AirAir Song (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Why Not/Polystar (Japan), 1975. Used ... $19.99
A tremendous album from Air – recorded in their native Chicago, but one of the landmark 70s sessions on Japan's Why Not label! The trio is in wonderful formation here – very focused, with a sharpness that you don't always get in some of their other recordings – a perfect balance between the reeds of Henry Threadgill, bass of Fred Hopkins, and drums of Steve McCall! There's a tightness here that we really love – a bold sense of power that takes the AACM tradition, and fuses it with more of a 70s spiritual jazz approach at times – still experimental enough to live up to Air's reputation, but with occasional rhythmic elements that really push things forward. The album only features 4 tracks – but all of them are long, and stepped in soul – with titles that include "The Great Body Of The Riddle Or Where Where The Dodge Boys When My Clay Started To Slide", "Untitled Tango", and "Dance Of The Beast".

Average White BandAverage White Band ... CD
Atlantic, 1974. Used ... $6.99
AWB's first for Atlantic – and a nice slice of funk that proves that they can mix it up with the best groups of the 70s! The record's got plenty of sweet electric keyboards over smooth funky basslines – and as the years go by, the band's white boy vocals don't sound nearly as bad as we remember them. And besides, when they play their instruments so nicely – how can you hold the singing against them? Includes the killer classic "Pick Up The Pieces", sampled more times than we can remember – plus "You Got It", "Just Wanna Love You Tonight", "Person To Person", and a nice remake of the Isley Brothers' "Work To Do". The CD includes the bonus track "Pick Up The Pieces (the Atlantic Family Live At Montreux). CD

Average White BandPerson To Person ... CD
Atlantic, 1976. Used 2CDs ... $9.99
Their classic double live set from the mid 70s, and as tight a batch of grooves as you'll find on their studio albums! In fact, this one might even be tighter, as it's got a good set of classic tracks performed live, with a sound that's a little bit more uptight and open than the studio versions– and which is especially freewheeling on the instrumental solos. Many tracks go for a lot longer than on the original versions – and there's a version of "Pick Up The Pieces" that runs for 18 minutes, a version of "If I Ever Lose This Heaven" that grooves for 8 minutes, a version of "School Boy Crush" that jams for 7 minutes, plus nice takes on the cuts "Cut The Cake", "Love Your Life", and "Cloudy".

Beach BoysIn Concert ... CD
Capitol, 1973. Used ... $6.99
A hipper concert than you might expect – recorded in 1973, and originally issued as a double LP. The band by this point includes Blondie Chaplin and the enigmatic Ricky Fataar – and in some way, the songs have a sincerity that's lacking from a lot of the studio albums at the same time. There's a number of the usual 60s hits that you'd expect – plus nice versions of "Darlin", "The Trader", "Sail On Sailer", "Caroline No", "Heroes & Villains", "Leaving This Town", "Let The Wind Blow", "Funky Pretty", and "You Still Believe In Me".

Beach BoysSmile Sessions (2CDs/book/poster/button) ... CD
Capitol, Mid 60s. Used 2 CDs ... $11.99
My God – they finally did it! After all these years of hearing about the legendary Smile album from The Beach Boys – hearing snippets on other albums, studio bonus tracks, re-recordings, and all the other sources they've dangled in front of us for decades – Capitol's finally gone and done what they never did back in the 60s – released the whole legendary set together, as one package – and in formats that even exceed anything that might have been issued back in the day! You've probably heard a good number of the songs here before – some as they were chopped up and included on Smiley Smile, 20/20, and other post-Pet Sounds albums by the group – and in some recent re-recordings by Brian Wilson. But trust us, they all sound amazing here together – in the original recordings, with sublime 60s studio production, and godlike arrangements by the young Brian Wilson. Titles include "Our Prayer", "Gee", "My Only Sunshine/You Are", "Cabin Essence", "Wonderful", "Surf's Up", "Holidays", "Vege-Tables", "Good Vibrations", "Love To Say Dada", "Do You Like Worms", "Barnyard", and "I'm In Great Shape". Plus, this hip box set has loads of cool bits – 2CDs that include the original album with 8 bonus tracks on the first disc – then a full bonus CD of "finished" work from the project – alternate takes, expanded versions, and more – including "Our Prayer Dialogue", "Surf's Up 1st Movement", "Vege-Tables (fade)", "Cool Cool Water (version 2)", "Heroes & Villains (children were raised)", and more. Box also comes with a poster, a 36 page booklet, and a button! CD

David BowieNothing Has Changed (3CD version) ... CD
Sony, Late 60s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s/2014. New Copy 3CD ... $21.99
Some of the greatest moments from David Bowie, mixed with some rare tracks, collaborations, 45 mixes, and more – as well as the single "Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime)" – which is one of Bowie's best singles in years! The package is available in a number of varieties, with a number of covers – and each different iteration offers a special sort of focus on Bowie's varied creative career – reminding us in more different ways how much we've continued to love his music over the years! This 3CD version features the track "Sue" – plus 58 more tracks that include"All The Young Dudes", "Dancing In The Streets" with Mick Jagger, "Silly Boy Blue", "Can't Help Thinking About Me", "Liza Jane", "You've Got A Habit Of Leaving", "Wild Is The Wind (2010 Harry Maslin mix)", "Buddha Of Subburbia", "Your Turn To Drive", "The Stars Are Out Tonight", "Blue Jean", "This Is Not America" with Pat Metheny, "Oh You Pretty Things", "Moonage Daydream", "Drive In Saturday", "Sorrow", "Fame", "Boys Keep Swinging", "Fashion (single)", "Ashes To Ashes (single)", "Love Is Lost (DFA hello Steve Reich mix)", "New Iller Star (radio)", "I'm Afraid Of Americans (V1 radio edit)", "Jump They Say (radio)", "Let's Dance", "Life On Mars", "Hello Spaceboy (PSB rmx)" with Pet Shop Boys, "Under Pressure" with Queen, "Sound & Vision", "Golden Years (single)", "Absolute Beginners (single)", "Starman (single)", "Rebel Rebel", "Jean Genie (orig single version)", "Changes", "Where Are We Now", "China Girl (single)", and "Heroes (single)".

Bobby BoydBobby Boyd (1976) ... CD
Vadim (France), 1976. New Copy ... $9.99
The rare second album from Bobby Boyd – a set that's even more soulful than his first, and which is filled with funky gems! Boyd's vocals are wonderful – tight, but with an earnest quality that almost pushes him more towards a Bill Withers vibe than some of the other funky singers of the time – a great change next to the tight combo instrumentation of the record. Tunes are almost all upbeat and funky – and the mixture of Boyd's warmth with the sharp grooves really makes for a rich sound overall – a record that should have, could have been huge – were it issued at the time – but which is finally seeing the light of day now, in this well-done full length production from Vadim! Titles include "Ain't What You Know", "Why Are You Cryin", "Good Woman", "Girl I Can Feel Ya", "On This Side Of Town", and "Let Bygones By Bygones" – plus the instrumental "The Happy Hooker", produced by Harvey Fuqua, and which seems to actually be the Nite Liters' song/version, oddly tucked into this album!

Oscar Brown JrKicks! – The Best Of Oscar Brown Jr ... CD
Sony/BGP (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Some of the most unique vocal work ever recorded – a stunning collection of Columbia sides by Oscar Brown Jr, a singer who mixed together equal parts jazz, soul, and folk – and came up with a sound that was all his own! Oscar bubbled out of the hip Chicago scene of the early 60s – and had a much more righteous approach than most of his contemporaries – not only writing his own lyrics for most of the tunes, but working in a genre-blending style that crossed over to a variety of difference audiences. Oscar could groove with the best in a southside club, but also appeal to the northside intellectuals – opening doors wherever he went with a fresh approach to jazz vocals! The set features work from all 4 of his Columbia albums – including a number of tracks on CD for the first time – and features arrangements by Quincy Jones, Floyd Morris, and Ralph Burns – on 23 tracks that include "All Blues", "Work Song", "Excuse Me For Living", "The Snake", "Mr Kicks", "Afro Blue", "Signifying Monkey", "Dat Dere", "Hazel's Hips", "Jeannine", "Opportunity Please Knock", "The Tree & Me", "Elegy (Plain Black Boy)", "Tall Like Pine", and "But I Was Cool".

Roy BrownGood Rockin Brown – The King & Deluxe Acetate Sides ... CD
King/Ace (UK), 1947. New Copy ... $11.99
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".

Cornelius CardewFour Principles On Ireland And Other Pieces (1974) ... CD
Ampersand, 1974. Used ... $13.99
Some of the most beautiful music we've ever heard from pianist Cornelius Cardew – some surprisingly sensitive solo tunes, although still done with the modern edge you'd expect! The political nature of the project is obvious from the title and cover – but while the music often carries an undercurrent of respectful sentiment, too – echoes of older historical themes mixed with Cardew's rich tones on piano. The result is an extremely evocative set that has us respecting Cardew even more than ever – and titles include "The Croppy Boy", "Charge", "Song & Dance", "Four Principles On Ireland", "Bethanien", and "Sailing The Seas Depends On The Helmsman".

John ColtraneClassic Quartet – Complete Impulse Studio Recordings (8 CD set) ... CD
Impulse, Early/Mid 60s. Used 8CD Box ... $45.99
The classic quartet of John Coltrane, certainly the classic quartet of the 60s jazz scene and perhaps the classic jazz quartet of all time, compiled in one box set with all of their studio recordings! John Coltrane, McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones set so many benchmarks for jazz with their envelope pushing style, recording and performances that it's impossible to overstate their importance in the modern musical oeuvre. This set features all of the LPs Coltrane, Ballads, Impressions, Live At Birdland, Crescent, A Love Supreme, The John Coltrane Quartet Plays, Kulu Se Mama, Transition, Sunship, Infinity and First Meditations, plus a number of tracks issued on compilations. 66 tracks in all, spread out over 8 CDs, in a beautiful bookbound package with a metal slipcase and extensive liner notes. The titles are too numerous to list here, but the set includes "Big Nick", "Soul Eyes", "Miles' Mode", "Tunji", "After The rain", "Lonnie's Lament", "The Drum Thing", "Wise One", "Crescent", "A Love Supreme", "Nature Boy", "Brasilia", "Song Of Praise", "Dear Lord", "The Last Blues", "Living Space", "Dusk Dawn", "Dearly Beloved", "Attaining", "Ascent", "Amen", "Love", "Compassion", "Joy", "Consequences", and "Serenity".

Larry CoryellBarefoot Boy ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $11.99
One of Larry Coryell's greatest albums ever! Barefoot Boy is a much more expansive session than some of Coryell's others, fueled in part by the spiritual intensity of the Impulse Records generation. It's got a momentum that's pretty darn exciting throughout – but the compositions are nice and long, which gives the players plenty of space to explore. Personnel includes Steve Marcus on tenor and soprano sax, Mike Mandel on piano, Roy Haynes on drums, and Larry Killian on congas – working with Coryell on long trippy tracks that remind us a bit of 60s work by Chico Hamilton, Charles Lloyd, and Gabor Szabo. Titles include "Call To The Higher Consciousness", "The Great Escape", and "Gypsy Queen". CD

CrystalsCrystals Sing The Greatest Hits ... CD
Philles/Sony (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $9.99
A stunning full length set from The Crystals – a package that brings together some of their early hits with Phil Spector, but also includes some lesser-known groovers too! The material here is about as perfect as you could get for a girl soul group in the 60s – vocals that are sweet, yet surprisingly soulful too – with a maturity and sensuality that sometimes gets obscured over the passage of time, but which really comes through in the full range of material here! Phil's production is great, but it's also the arrangements from Jack Nitzsche that really make things cook – especially on some of the rougher, more rowdy numbers. Titles include "Hot Pastrami", "The Wah Watusi", "There's No Other", "On Broadway", "Da Doo Ron Ron", "He's Sure The Boy I Love", "The Twist", "Gee Whiz", and "Uptown". CD

Philles/Sony (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $9.99
Sublime sounds from The Crystals – one of the coolest, grooviest girl soul groups of the 60s – thanks to superb work in the studio from the legendary Phil Spector! The sound here is a pefect balance between pop and soul – definitely with vocals bold enough to warrant the latter, but supported by perfect wall of sound production, Jack Nitzsche arrangements, and razor-sharp Wrecking Crew instrumentation – so that the whole thing soars to the heavens on magical waves of sound! The album shares a number of tracks with the group's Twist Uptown album, but the overall mood is a bit different – and tracks include the wonderful "He Hit Me (It Felt Like A Kiss)" – a song that really illustrates the complexity of early material like this – plus the Wall Of Sound classics "Uptown", "Oh Yeah Maybe Baby", "He's Sure The Boy I Love", "What A Way To Turn Seventeen", "I Love You Eddie", and "No One Ever Tells You".

CureThree Imaginary Boys (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Fiction/Rhino, 1977. Used 2CD ... $7.99
Perfect early work from The Cure – music that's short, sharp, and surprisingly powerful after all these years – especially if you're only mired in the kinds of goth cliches The Cure later became! The trio here has all the best sharp edges that made them a real standout in the post-punk years – and Robert Smith reminds us that although his vocals have gone onto be the stuff of legend, it may well have been his guitar work that first got him noticed! Really just guitar, bass, and drums – but used extremely well – on titles that include "Another Day", "Subway Song", "10:15 Saturday Night", "Accuracy", "Grinding Halt", "Three Imaginary Boys", "It's Not You", and "So What".

✨✧ Kenny DorhamBlues In Bebop ... CD
Savoy, Late 40s. Used ... $4.99
Some of the earliest recorded work from trumpeter Kenny Dorham – presented here in an overstuffed set that brings together most of his appearances on the Savoy label! The core standout tunes here are 10 numbers recorded in 1946 by The Bebop Boys – a combo that featured Dorham, Sonny Stitt, and Bud Powell coming together on tight, short, very upbeat bop material that ranked with some of the best early 78s of the genre. Titles by this group include "Seven Up", "Bebop In Pastel", "Serenade To A Square", "Fools Fancy", and "Bombay". Other material on the CD includes a solo by Kenny on "The Jitney Man" by Billy Eckstine, plus 3 tracks with the Milt Jackson Sextet from 1949 – including "Conglomeration", "Bruz", and "Roll Em Bags". Kenny also plays on three 1949 recordings with Charlie Parker – "Barbados", "Scrapple From The Apple", and "Bebop" – as well as four 1956 numbers with Cecil Payne – including "Grooving High", "Man Of Moods", and "Saucer Eyes".

Ella FitzgeraldTwelve Nights In Hollywood (4CD set) ... CD
Verve/Hip-O Select, 1961/1962. Used 4 CDs ... $69.99
Massive music from Ella Fitzgerald – 4CDs worth of sublime small group recordings – all of them live, and all of them previously unissued! The set follows the same format of the Verve Ella In Hollywood album – recorded in a small club setting, with combo backing that really lets Fitzgerald open up and swing – inflecting the tunes with the kind of warmth and spontaneity that she brought to her famous live performances of the time – which were almost always more compelling than her studio sides, no matter how great those were too! The first 3CDs feature material from two weeks' worth of recording in May of 1961 – with backing from Jim Hall on guitar, Lou Levy on piano, Wilfred Middlebrooks on bass, and Gus Johnson on drums – and CD four features Ella returning to Hollywood for two more nights in 1962, with trio backing from Paul Smith on piano, Middlebrooks on bass, and Stan Levey on drums. There's a massive 77 tracks in all – handsomely package in a hardcover 7" square book – which also features beautiful color pages inside, lots of notes on the music, and design that's every bit as groovy as the old albums on Verve. Titles include "Joe Williams' Blues", "It's De-Lovely", "Lorelei", "I Can't Get Started", "Round Midnight", "Perdido", "Little White Lies", "Lover Come Back To Me", "Across The Alley From The Alamo", "Love For Sale", "Exactly Like You", "Mack The Knife", "Teach Me Tonight", "My Kind Of Boy", "It Had To Be You", "Hard Hearted Hannah", "All Of Me", and "Too Darn Hot/Ella's Twist". And, in case you're wondering, there's almost no repetition in the set at all – all discreet, unique tunes – not just the sort of rehash you might get in other concert box sets of this nature! CD
