Peven EverettSpeed Of Light ... CD
Studio Confessions, 2002. Used ... $8.99
Excellent work from Peven Everett – another one of his home-made underground soul CDs, issued by Peven himself as a big "F#$% You" to the major labels that have screwed around with him in the past! The CD is a brilliant mix of soul, jazz, house, and touches of Afro-centric rhythms – crafted in a swirling mix that dips back 30 years into the history of soul, yet still points the way towards a richly positive future – sounding a heck of a lot more "real" than just about anyone else we can think of on the market today, and showing Everett as a burgeoning soul genius – on a par with D'Angelo, Norman Harris, Donnie Hathway, and, dare we say it, Marvin Gaye. Tracks include "Testin Me", "Stroll By The River", "Run Around", "One More Time", "Puerto Rico", and "Your Letter". 13 tracks in all! CD
(Note that each of these is handmade by Peven – so that the items will have a self-produced, homemade look to them that differs from CD to CD – although the music is great, and that production makes these one of a kind items!)

✨✧ Luke VibertRhythm ... CD
Sound Of Speed, 2009. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty sweet set from the man of many names, club groove beat legend Luke Vibert! Rhythm has a lot of spacey soul jazz inspired sounds in the mix, and beats the roll from a laidback hip hop style more of sparse groove – kind of a slow rolling groove rather than a fill the club floor sound – a sample based, borderline hip hop instrumentals style set – and it's working well for our ears! Titles include "Wow! It's Now", "Registrarse", "Sparky Is A Retard", "A Fine Line", "My Style", "Keep Calm & Carry On", "Concertina Turner", "James Bond In A Jimmy Hat" and more. CD

Gene Barge, David Matthews, & Andre DavisStony Island – Original Soundtrack ... CD
TK/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. Used ... $14.99
A sweet set of soundtrack funk – from a film named after one of our favorite streets in Chicago! Although the record's got an approach that's perhaps a bit tighter and smoother than anything going down on Stony in the late 70s, it does manage to share a good deal of styles with the Chi-soul scene of the time – thanks to work on the record from Chicagoans Gene Barge, Sonny Seals, and Tennyson Stephens! Many of the tracks on the set have a bad-walking soul approach – one that's kind of a mixture of funky and bluesy – and these are laid out next to some jazzier instrumentals that we like most of all – tunes that have a great funky soundtrack feel, but with a bit more fusion touches than usual, probably because of the work of David Matthews. Titles include "Percy Fired", "Party Lights", "High Speed Posters", "Back To Business", "Chase The Train", "Gangster City", "Dream Ride", and "Peace Of Mind". CD

Gil EvansGil Evans & Ten (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Prestige (Japan), 1957. Used ... $29.99
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

✨✧ Michael JacksonBad – 25th Anniversary Edition (2CDs) ... CD
Epic, 1987. Used 2CDs ... $8.99
The third great album in the trilogy that includes Off The Wall and Thriller – and a set that still has Michael Jackson running strong at the height of his solo powers! Quincy Jones is still at the helm, and Michael more than proves that he can still come up with a pop tune without going too far over the top – catchy, compelling numbers that played well all over the world of pop – but which still hang onto just a little part of his soul roots too! That balance is a key factor to the success of this set – a record that helped re-ignite interest in Jackson's music, and introduce him to a whole new generation – while still keeping most of the older fans plenty pleased too. Titles include "Just Good Friends", "Smooth Criminal", "Bad", "Another Part Of Me", "Man In The Mirror", and "Speed Demon". 2CD version is filled with great bonus material – a huge amount of tracks that include "Free", "Song Groove", "I'm So Blue", "Don't Be Messin Round", "Streetwalker", "Fly Away", "Price Of Fame", "Todo Mi Amor Eres Tu", "Je Ne Vieux Pas La Fin De Nous", "Bad (Afrojack rmx)", "Speed Demon (Nero rmx)", and "Bad (Afrojack club)".

Junior ManceJunior Mance Trio At The Village Vanguard (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Jazzland (Japan), 1961. Used ... $11.99
A firey little trio session from Junior Mance – one that features tracks taken at a pace that's even more uptempo than usual, and which really pushes his skills on the keys! The speed of the set is by no means a detriment to Mance's soulful playing – and if anything, the record stands as one of his most compelling from the period – not just a batch of soul jazz styles that were soon becoming cliches, but a vibrant example of the full range of Mance's talents, caught in a very spontaneous setting. Trio members include Larry Gales on bass and Ben Riley on drums – and titles include "Smokey Blues", "Bingo Domingo", "Looptown", "Letter From Home", and "Girl Of My Dreams". CD

Gil Scott-HeronFree Will (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), Early 70s. Used ... $7.99
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". CD features 11 stunning bonus tracks – alternates of songs on the album, and some very cool "breakdown" tracks as well! CD

✨✧ David BowieLow (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Ryko, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Thin White Duke turns to the east – and gets a whole new sound with help from Brian Eno! The album is an amazing departure from some of David Bowie's previous work – a set that's sparer, more spacious, and which is often instrumental – quite a statement, given Bowie's reputation as a songwriter at the time! It's almost like Bowie's shaking off all the confused stardom of the previous parts of the 70s – and is stepping forward as a new being from a new space – cleaner, leaner, and simpler than before – but hardly evacuated of soul at all, certainly not as much as you might guess from the Man Who Fell To Earth image on the cover. Titles include "Speed Of Life", "Be My Wife", "A New Career In A New Town", "Warsawza", "Art Decade", "Weeping Wall", and "Sound & Vision". Features great bonus tracks – "Some Are", "Sound & Vision (rmx)", and "All Saints". CD

✨✧ James BrownTake A Look At Those Cakes (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Polydor/Culture Factory, 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
A plenty funky record, despite a cheesy cover – which shows James Brown as a disco-era player – kicking back on a couch with an unbuttoned shirt, while two topless girls dance in front of him – showing him their "cakes"! The groove's definitely different than the Payback years, but it's still composed of the same core elements – sharp instrumentation, played live and in a very lively way – sped up a bit for the dancefloor, but maybe even more breathtaking because of the speed! At the time, Brown spent plenty of time trying to claim the mantle of disco godfather – but he's still way more than that here – a fierce funk maestro who's already got his instrumental tip down to razor-sharp perfection, which makes the shouted and called vocals just a bonus icing on the cake! Tracks are long and plenty jamming – and titles include "For Goodness Sakes Take A Look At Those Cakes", "Someone To Talk To", "A Man Understands", and "As Long As I Love You". CD

✨✧ Black SabbathSabotage (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Castle/Sanctuary (UK), 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
Black Sabbath going strong – very much in their own space by this point in their career, setting a sound that countless others would try to follow – but never match for fierceness like this! The fuzz is definitely turned up to 11, the rhythms move at a breakneck speed, and Ozzy's vocals have all the mean, sinister sounds that set a generation on fire – plenty of energy to fill up long tracks that include "Megalomania", "Hole In The Sky", "Symptom Of The Universe", "Supertzar", "Am I Going Insane", and "The Writ".

Clarke Boland Big BandHandle With Care ... CD
Atlantic/Koch, 1962. Used ... $7.99
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

Georgie Fame & The Blue FlamesSweet Things (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1966. Used ... $19.99
A definite sweet thing from Georgie Fame – a record that has him filling in his sound even more than before, with tremendously soulful results! The backings here are bigger than before – a bit tooled in an American soul mode, but still with that beautifully raspy Georgie Fame touch – lots of jazzy inflections on the vocals, and a way of handling a tune, even a familiar one, and really working it on his own level. Hammond still fills in most of the tunes, but other instrumentation includes some nice African percussion from Speedy Acquaye, saxes from Pete Coe, and some nice bold drums from John Mitchell. These come out to the forefront on the classic funky tune "Music Talk" – and still sound great on other numbers that include "The World Is Round", "Last Night", "Dr Kitch", "My Girl", "Ride Your Pony", and "Sweet Thing". CD features 9 more bonus tracks – including "No No", "It Ain't Right", "Sick & Tired", "So Long", and "Blue Monday". CD

VariousBeginner's Guide To Salsa Vol 2 (3CD box set) ... CD
Nascente (UK), Early 2000s. Used 3CD ... $11.99
A great companion to the first volume in the Beginner's Guide To Salsa – and proof that the genre is alive and well into the 21st Century! Unlike the first volume, which featured a fair bit of work from the 70s – this one mostly combines newer tracks from recent years – all still done in a classic samba-styled groove that uses plenty of percussion and horns – filled with driving rhythms that are split out into different speeds on each of the three CDs – titled "Slow (Beginners)", "Medium (Improvers)", and "Fast (Advanced)". But whether you're dancing or not, there's plenty to enjoy here – a motherlode of work that we really missed on initial release – 30 tracks that include "J's Joint" by Grupo X, "Ya Llego Fruko" by Fruko Y Sus Tesos, "Penas De Amor" by Willie Amadeo, "Canuto" by Soneros Del Barrio, "Inglaterra" by Alex Wilson R&B Latino Project, "La Clave" by Los Del Caney, "Tu Son" by Los Titanes, "Con Ojos De Dolor" by Los Niches, "No Exite Mas Amor" by La Sbrosura, "Coscosito" by Jimmy Bosch, and "Grog Moin" by Africando.

✨✧ All NaturalSecond Nature ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2001. Used ... Out Of Stock
The second full length by Capital D and Tone B Nimble as All Natural! Second Nature is jammed packed with 19 tracks featuring the cream of the Chicago underground and other guests including JUICE, Slug, Lone Catalysts, Mr. Greenweedz and others. The no-nonsense, sturdy beats and production is the most unifying factor here – with Capital D's unwavering devotion to Islam sometimes contrasting sharply with some of the more bragging and boasting of some of the guest MCs. Still, at it's best Second Nature is lyrically uncompromising and has an outlook as fresh as any new hip hop we've heard in a while. Tracks include "Second Nature", "Think Again", "The Next Mile", "Vegetarian", "Ill Advisory", "Stellar", "Uncle Sam", "Here's The Hate On Chicago", "Renaissance", "Godspeed", and "Future Is Now". CD has four extra tracks. CD
