✨✧ Latin Blues Band Featuring Luis AlvesTake A Trip Pussycat (remastered edition) ... CD
Speed/Fania, Late 60s. Used ... $11.99
A wild wild album of Latin soul – one of the maddest albums ever recorded for the legendary Speed label! The group, like a rare few others of their generation, are an insane mix of Latin jamming, psychedelic soul, and stoner funk riffing – all sifted together in a blender, with a sound that brings out the best aspects in all elements involved! The album's got some wonderful bouncy cuts with a Latin soul groove and weird English lyrics – like "Lay An Oz On Me Baby", "I'll Be A Happy Man", and "Pussycat" – the kind of raw, wild, and very groovy tracks that you'd buy an album like this for. And there's also a totally great, totally tight descarga cut called "The Cow", that runs for 8 minutes with a very firey groove and lots of amazing playing! And if that wasn't enough, the cover's got a wild psychedelic image of a nude body with lots of colored lights projected over it, and a feeling that's about as trippy as the band must have been when they recorded this one! Other tracks include "Hasta Cuando", "Take A Trip", and "Pura Falsedad". CD

Gil EvansGil Evans & Ten ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1957. Used ... $8.99
Fantastic early work from Gil Evans – emerging here in this early session as an already far-thinking modernist. The tracks are shorter and less ambitious than some of Evans' work on Impulse, but the group is excellent – and even in a shorter format, the conception of the work still contains plenty of rich new ideas. Players include Louis Mucci, John Carisi, Steve Lacy, Willie Ruff, Paul Chambers, Nick Stabulis, and "Zeke Tolin" on alto, who is certainly a more famous player under a fake name. Titles include "Ella Speed", "Big Stuff", "Jambangle", "Nobody's Heart", and "Remember". CD

Illinois Jacquet & Ben WebsterKid & The Brute ... CD
Verve, Mid 50s. Used ... $18.99
The title's a bit misleading – as a number of the tracks on here were recorded by Jacquet, and Webster only sat in on two longer jamming numbers – "I Wrote This For The Kid" and "The Kid & The Brute". Not that that's a problem – as those long numbers take up a good portion of the record, and are really driving numbers that have some conga in the rhythm section, which makes for a lively kick that really drives the tracks. The conga also surfaces in "Mambocito Mio", a Latin jammer that moves at the best cubop speed – and other tunes include "Saph", "September Song", and "Jacquet's Dilemma". 15 tracks in all on this limited edition CD.

Michele Zanoni, Guido & Maurizio De AngelisMalombra ... CD
Hexacord (Italy), 1983. Used ... $18.99
An obscure slinky soundtrack from Italy – recorded for a 1983 film that was also known as Erotic Games, but done with a sweet feel that's like some of the best sex scores from the 70s! The whole thing moves along at a pretty mellow speed – really taking its time with the thin keyboard lines and bass bits that push along with the score – unfolding slowly into these great little moody tracks. The set features 14 titles in all, including some variations on the main theme. CD

VariousKeep On Struttin – Imitations, Interpolations, & The Inspiration Of The Meters ... CD
Le Smoke Disque, Late 60s/1970s. Used ... $3.99
A massive tribute to The Meters – one that features rare versions of some of their best funky classics! If you dig The Meters, you'll no doubt recognize most of the tunes – but you've probably never heard them in these versions before – as most of them are pulled from the farthest reaches of the 60s and 70s funky underground! Most numbers change things up a bit in terms of instrumentation – using a guitar where you might normally hear an organ, tipping the rhythm a bit more towards one speed or another – but all of them continue strongly that chunky, gritty approach to instrumental funk the New Orleans combo first forged in the late 60s – a legacy that still lives on in lots of current work, but which sounds even fresher in these rare gems from years back. There's also a few original compositions by some of these artists, but they're all tunes that fall strongly within a classic Meters groove – and titles include "Cissy Strut" by Rod Piazza, "Flight Of The Phoenix" by Dennis The Fox, "Slot Machine" by Duke Of Burlington, "Cissy Strut" by King Herbert & The Knights, "Cardova" by Syd Jones & The Gay Troubadours, "The Cissy's Thang" by The Soul Seven, "Look Ka Py Py" by The Invaders, "Chicken Strut" by King Herbert & The Knights, "Madrox" by Big Band Katouuice, "Cissy Strut" by Sacramento Senior High School, "Big Splash" by Band It, and "Soul Heart Transplant" by Ebony Rhythm Band.

Goldmine (UK), 1960s/1996. Used ... $9.99
Very tight batch of uptown soul put together by the good folks at Goldmine. Some great male vocalists in the early smooth soul tradition – and some great lost female vocal sides that we never ever see. Titles include "Who Is It Gonna Be" by Dee & Joe", "I'm Lonely For You" by Bettye Swann, "Consider The Source" by Leon Haywood, "Face Up To The Truth" by Doris Troy, "Love Won't Wear Off" by JR Bailey, "Why Did I Lie" by The Players, "Bring On The Heartaches" by Willie Tee, "I've Got Love For My Baby" by The Younghearts, "Mamma's Love" by The Tribulations, "I'm Sorry" by Cody Black, "Speed Up" by The Impalas, and "I'm Gonna Make It" by The Pacesetters. 24 cuts in all!

✨✧ James BrownJames Brown Singles Vol 2 – 1960 to 1963 ... CD
King/Hip-O Select, Early 60s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The second chapter in the career of James Brown – right when things really started getting interesting, and the Godfather started to explore a huge array of new styles! The 2CD set is a great follow-up to Hip-O's look at Brown's Federal years – and it tracks his first 3 years of singles for King Records – an array of 40 tracks that run the gamut from bluesy soul to instrumental funk – and everything else in between! James is really at the top of his early game here – bursting out with new ideas on every new session – moving at rapid speed to try out new music with Bobby Byrd, JC Davis, Nat Kendrick, and other key group members during these early years. As with the first volume, the collection presents the music in a single-by-single basis – a and b-sides intact, and documented by great notes that further open up this incredible music. Given that the later albums chopped up all of the tracks and released them in greatly different order, the package is an essential back-to-basics look at this time – handled better than we ever could have imagined! Titles include "Can You Feel It (part 1 & 2)", "Three Hearts In A Tangle", "I've Got Money", "The Bells", "Hold It", "The Scratch", "Sticky", "Suds", "I Don't Mind", "Cross Firing", "Night Flying", "I'll Never Never Let You Go", "I Love You Yes I Do", "Oh Baby Don't You Weep (parts 1 & 2)", "Waiting In Vain", "Devil's Den (parts 1 & 2)", "Can You Feel It (part 1)", "Choo Choo", "Prisoner Of Love", "Why Does Everything Happen To Me", "Bewildered (demo)", and "Night Train".

✨✧ Gil Scott-HeronFree Will ... CD
Flying Dutchman/RCA, Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A really tremendous album from the legendary Gil Scott-Heron – and a set that stands as one of his greatest statements from the 70s! The record is a wonderful example of Gil's work in two different styles – sweet mellow jazzy soul, and harder heavier protest poetry – the latter from his roots as a writer in touch with the streets, and the former part of a brilliant new direction that he was taking on the Flying Dutchman label. Side one features classic jazzy tracks recorded with Brian Jackson – like "Free Will", "The Middle Of Your Days", "Speed Kills", and "Did You Hear What They Said?". Side two moves over to a much sparer sound – and has Gil reciting some of his poetry with very heavy percussion, and a very righteous approach. The wisdom and knowledge of those pieces is a perfect example of the kinds of issues that were haunting black America in the early 70s – especially on the tracks "No Knock", "The King Alfred Plan", and "Sex Education: Ghetto Style".

✨✧ VariousMore Soul Selections ... CD
Hubbub (UK), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A lousy cover, but some really great cuts – one of the killer compilations put together by the Hubub label back in the 90s, one of the first reissue imprints that really started digging up rare 70s soul and funk! The package features both dancefloor numbers and some great mellower grooves – and really has an ear for the kind of overlooked gems that other reissue labels weren't hitting at the time (and which few others have managed to catch in recent years either!) Titles include the fantastic uptempo "Nightlife" by Blair, the much sought-after "You Should Have Told Me" by Donna McGhee, the sweet "Lovely Weekend" by Ron & Candy, the mellow "Phone Home" by Johnny Chingas, and the soulful "Speed Up" by Betty Moorer. Other tracks include "You're So Right For Me" by Eastside Connection, "I Love Her So Much It Hurts" by The Majestics, "Elijah Rockin With Soul" by Hank Jacobs, "Lovely Lady" by Vernon Burch, and "Here Is Where The Love Is" by Bobby Wilson.

✨✧ Gene O'QuinBoogie Woogie Fever ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Early 50s. Used ... $8.99
A country guitar firebrand in the tradition of Speedy West, Joe Maphis, and the Collins Brothers, with an unmistakable Hank Williams-inspired croon! In the early 50s Gene was a crucial rung on the ladder that lead to rock and roll, and this Bear Family collection of 30 of his tunes is the first of his previously (almost) lost recordings to make it to CD! Tracks include the great "Boogie Woogie Fever", "The Pinball Millionaire", "You Name It (She's Got It)", "Texas Boogie", "I Specialize In Love", "No Parking Here", "I'll Stop Loving You", "It's No Wonder", "Tired", "You Played Around With My Heart", "You're Smiling At Another", "I Searched The Crowd", and lots more. Also included is a nice and thick booklet – a nice historical portrait to connect with the records! CD

✨✧ Myles SankoForever Dreaming ... CD
Legere (UK), 2014. Used ... $9.99
Timeless soul and funk from London-based singer Myles Sanko! Sanko had been a rising talent for a few years, serving as a guest vocalist with funk combo Speedometer and others on the European scene, and he really steps out strongly on his own here. There's a richly melodic vibe that's pretty wonderful – and that gives it an emotional, deep soul resonance, without sacrificing the gritty working band feel that we love some much about modern day funk. He's backed by a strong 8 piece combo throughout, and the titles include "Forever Dreaming", "Light In My Hand", "Shooting Star", "My Inspiration", "So Much Indeed", "To My Surprise", "Save My Soul", "Lonely Dreamers", "Take A Look At Me Now", "Take A Look At Me Now" and more. Includes 2 bonus tracks: "Where We Need To Be" and an instrumental version of "To My Surprise". CD

Atlantic/Koch, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work by this legendary hard swinging band – an early 60s American album issued on Atlantic Records, in the years before the Clark Boland Band's legendary run on MPS! Despite the early date, the album's got all the core elements of the band's sound in place – soaring rhythms, sharp-edged frontlines, and some great solo work by players who include Benny Bailey, Derek Humble, Jimmy Woode, Shahib Shihab, Idrees Sulieman, and Fats Sadi – coming together in a brilliant trans-Atlantic meeting of jazz talents! Tracks include "Long Note Blues", "Speedy Reeds", "Sonor", and "Om Mani Padme Hum". CD

Rhino, 1960s/1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
The second volume in Rhino's groovy set of TV cop show theme songs – put together with the Nick At Nite TV Land crew, and featuring a track selection that's hipper than you might think! There's a few on here that we could have done without, but there's more than enough great numbers to make the set worthwhile – especially because they haven't been reissued elsewhere. Titles include "Mannix" by Lalo Schifrin, "Charlie's Angels" by Jack Elliott, "77 Sunset Strip" by Warren Barker, "Vega$" by Dominic Frontiere, "Cannon" by John Parker, "Hart to Hart" by Mark Snow, "Hawaiian Eye" by Warren Barker, "Tenspeed & Brownshoe" by Mike Post, "Theme From Checkmate" by John Williams, and "Harry O" by The John Gregory Orchestra. 16 tracks in all!
