Pete Brown & PibloktoThings May Come & Go – But The Art School Dance Goes On Forever ... CD
Harvest/Warner (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $15.99
Pure genius from the mind of Pete Brown – and a seminal slice of sound from the Harvest Records empire – a record that's every bit as messed up as you'd guess from the title – and we mean that in the best way possible! The album flies its freak flag high, but never in a messed up or sloppy way at all – as Brown wickedly weaves together all these jazzy currents with his own brash, bold lyricism – making the best of the amazing guitar skills of Jim Mullen, and keyboard work of Dave Thompson – who are definitely a cut above the usual jazz rockers of the period, and are able to match the drama of Pete's vocals, but also help him from never sounding too self-absorbed. They definitely don't make 'em like this anymore – as you'll hear on titles that include "High Flying Electric Bird", "Someone Like You", "Walk For Charity Run For Money", "Golden Country Kingdom", and "Firesong".

Vic CaesarBare Knuckles – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Gucci, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 16.98
A long lost electric funk soundtrack for the grindhouse also-ran Bare Knuckles – full of wild, funky organ riffing, heavy drums and chicken scratch guitar! The flick is one of those sleazy 70s monstrosities full of motorcycle chases, bloody fist fights, and butt ugly guys who get the girls anyway – ripe material for a wildly funky soundtrack! We don't know details of the sessions or the players involved, but the sound is pure late 70s gritty organ and drums funk – one that would fit a blaxploitation flick, a badly dubbed kung fu cheapie or silly revenge flick! Tracks include "Bare Knuckles", "Shake Down", "Gonna Getcha", "Loving You", "Essex Exit", "Charing Cross", "Loving You Too", "Bare Knuckle Blues" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Blind Gary DavisHarlem Street Singer ... CD
Prestige/Bluesville, Early 60s. Used ... $8.99
A deep, rootsy record for Bluesville by Blind Gary Davis – who sings and plays guitar on 12 spare songs with grit, soul and charm – on a mixture of traditional blues tunes and originals. Gary also recorded and performed as Reverend Gary Davis on stirring gospel blues records over the years, and while Harlem Street Singer has a strong spiritual side, it's got a downhome blues feel, too. Raw, wonderful recordings by a legend. Titles include "Tryin To Get Home", "Samson & Delilah", "Death Don't Have No Mercy", "I Belong To The Band", "Pure Religion", "I Am The Light Of This World", and "Twelve Gates To The City". CD

Lou DonaldsonSwing & Soul ... LP
Blue Note, 1957. Very Good+ ... $299.99
Pure genius from Lou Donaldson – proof that his voice on the alto sax was one of the freshest in the post-Charlie Parker years! Lou's blowing here with a lively intensity that's clearly inspired by Parker, but which diverges from it quite a bit – taking a similar blend of inspiration and rediscovery that Jackie McLean was using on his Blue Note sessions of the time, but going in a much more soul-based direction than Jackie ever did. The group on the set's great too – with Donaldson's frequent accompanist Herman Foster on piano, always a treat on any set – plus Peck Morrison on bass, Dave Bailey on drums, and Ray Barretto kicking up a nice little groove on conga! Titles include "Herman's Mambo", "Peck Time", "Groove Junction", and "Grits & Gravy". LP, Vinyl record album

Lee HazlewoodThese Boots Are Made For Walkin' – The Complete MGM Recordings ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $13.99 19.99
Genius, pure genius! (Have we said that about Lee too many times before?) The work of Lee Hazlewood is beyond description – a bit of vocals, a bit of country, a bit of lounge, and a bit of rock – all wrapped up with a sinister edge that has you believing that this was the man who used to refer to his frequent musical partner as "Nasty" Sinatra over the headphones during recording sessions! The set features 35 tracks from Lee's obscure years at MGM records – wonderful vocal tunes that rank with some of his best ever, plus a few weird instrumentals, recorded by Lee Hazlewood's Woodchucks. Insanely wonderful stuff – records that we come back to again and again and again over the years – finally presented in their entirety, with a great set of notes on the music! Tracks include "Hands", "Mannford Oklahoma", "This Town", "Sand", "Child", "Little War", "Fort Worth", "Summer Wine", "I Move Around", "After Six", "Batman", "Summer Nights", "Suzi Jane Is Back In Town", "In Our Time", "When A Fool Loves A Fool", and "So Long Babe".

InternetEgo Death ... CD
Columbia, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99
Pure wonderfulness from Internet – a group who seem to bound forward strongly with each new release! These guys are easily one of the most compelling mainstream soul acts we can think of – still very lean, and working with an indie-level vibe – but also able to focus in on hooks and the sorts of catchy elements that are bound to make the group huge in coming years! There's a crispy, crackling sound in the rhythms all the way through – but never in a too-abstract level, as some more sci-fi oriented artists can hit – and although the record features guest work from Janelle Monae, Tyler The Creator, and a few other stars – we actually love the group's own core performances the best. Titles include "Get Away", "Under Control", "Gabby", "Go With It", "Girl", "Special Affair", "Something's Missing", "Partners In Crime (part 3)", and "Penthouse Cloud". CD

Nothing fancy – just a way too long in the making, straight up hip hop record from J-Live, a record that cares a whole lot about the words for a change. Stripped down, pure hip hop from the heart, with intelligent lyrics and straight ahead, well thought out beats, from and MC and producer who clearly does what he does because he loves it. Tracks include "First Thing First", "How Real It Is", "MCee", "Once For The Griot", "Nights Like This", "Travelling","All Of The Above", "All In Together Now" and more. Here's a plus – as far as we can tell, J-Live is the only MC on this record – when's the last time you bough t a hip hop LP with no cameos? CD

Carmen LundyChanges (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Afrasia/Pure Pleasure (UK), 2012. New Copy Gatefold ... $38.99 44.99
A wonderful record from Carmen Lundy – filled with original compositions, and recorded with a really solid jazz-based backing! The set's a great reminder of why Lundy is one of our favorite jazz singers ever – one of the few who continue to hold true to their original promise over the years, and keep developing their craft as time goes by – really honing in on all the aspects that first made them great, and finding a way to push them even farther! Lundy's vocals are wonderful – fluid, soulful, and instantly captivating – with a power that goes way beyond standard jazz vocalizations – and the lyrics are personal and expressive, but with a righteous vibe too – which keeps them from ever being too familiar, or too cliched. Simply put, Carmen's got a way of putting over a song that just about nobody else can ever touch – and she really can't miss here, with help from Anthony Wonsey on piano and Fender Rhodes, Nolan Shaheed on trumpet, Oscar Castro Neves on guitar, and George Bohannon on trombone. Titles include "So Beautiful", "Love Thy Neighbor", "Too Late For Love", "Sleeping Alone", "Where Love Surrounds Us", and "Dance The Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

Carmen LundySoul To Soul (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Afrasia/Pure Pleasure (UK), 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $52.99 68.99
We've loved Carmen Lundy since the very first time we heard her voice – and that love has only continued to grow over the decades, as she's given us a tremendous run of great records and wonderful music! This time around, Lundy's still strongly in the jazz side of the spectrum, but also brings in a bit of the soul music promised in the title – working in sharp focus on a set of well-penned original tunes that really open up her vocals – most of which feature the legendary Patrice Rushen on keyboards, too! There's an understated brilliance here that really lives up to Lundy's legacy – a way of putting over a tune without every overdoing it – a lesson that's been learned in jazz, but which also has a great impact here in a slightly different setting. Other players on the record include Warren Wolf on vibes, Geri Allen on Fender Rhodes and piano, Darryl Hyall on bass, and Bennie Maupin on soprano sax – and titles include "Grace", "Kindred Spirits", "Life Is A Song In Me", "Soul To Soul", "When Will They Learn", and "Grateful (parts 1 & 2)".

Jackie McLeanBluesnik (RVG remaster edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Note, 1960. Used ... $7.99
A crackling date from Jackie McLean – a set that's much more hardbop than some of his other Blue Note work – filled with fire, far from the 50s – and really pointing the way towards his new directions to come! There's a hint of modernism in the mix, mostly on the tone from McLean's alto sax – but most numbers are forward-thinking, and played with a sense of perfection that's pure Blue Note all the way through. Group members include Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Kenny Drew on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Pete LaRoca on drums – and titles include "Cool Green", "Torchin", "Bluesnik", "Drew's Blues", and "Blues Function". Great cover, too – and the CD reissue includes 2 bonus cuts – alternates of "Goin Way Blues" and "Torchin". CD

Earl MorganDC Dub Connection ... CD
Auralux (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $9.99
A gem of a dub LP, one that has languished in obscurity for too long! Heptone Earl Morgan didn't cut a huge volume of music as a producer, basically filling down time between Heptone's gigs in the latter part of the bands' career working with up and coming artists, but he had enough clout to generate this tasty set of rhythms and handed them over to Jammy and Scientist to work their dub magic on at Tubby's so you know the set's rough and ready to rock steady! The gang's all here, with Sly, Horsemouth, Boo Richards, Ranchie McLean, Leroy Sibbles, Flabba Holt, Boris Gardiner and Lloyd Parks pumping up the jams with some heavy duty drum and bass workouts, and an all star cast filling in the gaps, including Ansel Collins, Winston Wright, Bo Peep, Bingy Bunny, Deadly Headly,. Sticky, Skully and more! There's even a couple of bad Black Ark rhythms from the Heptones excellent Party Time LP, given a heavy dub rub to round out the set, one you'll have to part with a pretty penny to grab on vinyl! 10 tracks in all, including "Bo Yarka Dub", "Vibration Rock", "Rhythm Macka", "Pure Sorrow Dub", "Party Time Dub", "Jamaican Hammer Horror", "Apartment 48", and "Dub Transaction".

Piero PiccioniLe Altre ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1969. New Copy 2 CDs ... $19.99
Cool organ lines, wonderful keyboards, and lots of other great bits – all stepping out in a double-length set that's completely sublime – and maybe some of the best work we've ever heard from the mighty Piero Piccioni! The score is as sexy as you'd guess from the cover – and definitely has those bossa and jazz elements from the Morricone generation of Italian soundtrack work, too – yet it also has these interesting offbeat touches that are pure Piccioni right from the start – that great ear for odd tunings and unusual phrases that really keeps things interesting all the way through, and which makes the record so sublime from both a musical perspective and a sonic one! 2CD set features over two hours of music from this rare score – a number of which feature haunting wordless vocals from the lovely Edda Dell'Orso.

Pure Food & Drug ActChoice Cuts ... CD
Epic/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Mighty choice work from Pure Food & Drug Act – a studio supergroup with a heavy blues rock approach – thanks to heavy guitar from the great Harvey Mandel, and vocals and electric violin from Don Sugarcane Harris! The rest of the lineup is nice too – a quintet with Randy Resnick on rhythm guitar, Victor Conte on bass, and Paul Lagos on drums – but the real stars of the show are clearly Mandel and Harris, especially the former – as his presence here has a searing intensity that maybe even beats some of his own full albums of the time. Lots of long tracks – and titles include "What Goes Around Comes Around", "Do It Yourself", "A Little Soul Food", "Where's My Sunshine", "My Soul's On Fire", and "Eleanor Rigby". CD

Todd RundgrenSomething/Anything? ... CD
Bearsville/Rhino, 1972. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
Arguably one of the greatest pop albums of all time – a pure act of genius from Todd Rundgren, and one of the few cases in rock music where two records are actually better than one! The double-length set was Rundgren's third solo effort after the breakup of Nazz – but it's a broad step ahead from the first two, and a strong move into the kind of near-perfect, yet always-human pop that made Rundgren so great in the 70s. Sides one through three of the album were completely done by Todd himself – all instruments, voices, and production handled through the then-new magic of the 16 track studio – and Rundgren's really at his best here, working in the kind of personal modes that make his tunes so great, some of the best of the mainstream singer/songwriter generation. Side four has fuller arrangements and other players coming into the mix, but the core feel of the rest of the record is very nicely preserved – apart from a few tunes that perhaps get a bit too goofy. It's hard to imagine more great pop songs in one album – and the set's overflowing with genius moments that include "Marlene", "I Saw The Light", "I Wouldn't Have Made Any Difference", "It Takes Two To Tango", "Sweeter Memories", "I Went To The Mirror", "One More Day", "Song Of The Viking", and "Hello It's Me".

On-U Sound (UK), 1992. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A dubby dubby classic from the On-U Sound catalog – and a record cut at a time when On-U might have been turning out a more pure version of dub than some of the older Jamaican labels that inspired them in the first place! Adrian Sherwood is producing, but never with the slicker style he was using on pop efforts of the period – and the music is very bassy, with lots of work from Crucial Tony – with lots of those cool, offbeat electronic elements bubbling through the mix, of the sort that Sherwood could always do so well. Vocals are by Prince Far I, Bim Sherman, Lizard, and Jah Woosh – and titles include "Water The Garden", "Dungeon", "Merchant Ship", "Follower", "Prodigal Son", "Too Much Work Load", and "Thing Called Love".

✨✧ VariousEccentric Soul – The Capsoul Label ... LP
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $21.99
A treasure trove of funk and soul from one heck of a great little label – Columbus, Ohio's short-lived Capsoul imprint – only around for 5 years in the 70s, but home to a great flurry of indie singles! We first caught onto the label's brilliance with their funky classics "Hot Grits" by Elijah & The Ebonies and "Sock It To Em Soul Brother" by Bill Moss – but as this set wonderfully demonstrates, the label's got a heck of a lot more to offer – and all of it great! The label's brilliance has been masterfully unearthed by the crate-digging team at Numero Records – who've brought together 20 of the best Capsoul singles in a beautiful package that really tells the story of the tiny imprint, getting at the details and struggles that faced independent soul in the marketplace of the 70s. Way more than just a set of old singles, the set's a rich document of indie soul in one of the near-forgotten corners of the Midwest – filled with great tunes that may well have you booking the next flight you can find to Columbus! Titles include "Sock It To Em Soul Brother" by Bill Moss, "Pure Soul" by Elijah & The Ebonies, "Without Love" by Ronnie Taylor, "You're All I Need To Make It" by Johnson, Hawkins, Tatum, & Durr, "Hot Grits" by Elijah & The Ebonies, "Too Far Gone" by Four Mints, "I Want To Be Ready" by Kook Blues, "Go On Fool" by Marion Black, and "Number One" by Bill Moss.

Smooth and sophisticated grooving from Esther Phillips – a record that really has her shaking off the rag-tag and rootsy modes of earlier years, and gliding sweetly into the mainstream! Phillips' vocals are still as soulful and compelling as ever, but the backings are quite full – penned by Joe Beck, who also plays a fair bit of guitar on the record too – and done with a sound that's in the same mode as David Matthews' backings for other Kudu sides of the time. There's a definite soul-heavy focus going on here – with some clubby touches too – and titles include "Caravan", "Fever", "Pure Natural Love", "Unforgettable", "For All We Know", "Fools Rush In", and "Going Out Of My Head".

KassinSonhando Devagar (3D packaging – comes with glasses) ... CD
Coqueiro Verde (Brazil), 2011. Used ... $14.99
Really wonderful work from Alexandre Kassin – easily one of the most important contemporary figures in Brazilian music of the past decade or two! Kassin's best known on these shores for his work with Moreno Veloso and Domenico – but he's also had a hand in countless collaborations with others, both as a musician and a producer – helping shape the sound of Brazil in ways that rival American efforts of the post-rock generation. Yet Kassin's music is uniquely Brazilian, too – filled with warmth and imagination, and a careful balance of roots from older styles and cool contemporary execution – yet all without any of the genre-clashing styles of some of his compatriots on the scene – who sometimes try too hard to sound unique. Kassin's got a way of sounding universally appealing, yet never commercial – a really beautiful balance that's has his work at the top of our stacks for years – and which, with a record like this, may finally get him the global attention he deserves. The tunefulness at play is purely infectious – timeless sunshine pop hooks and overall catchiness, mixed with buzzing, avant touches on the edges that push it into weirder, but no less accessible realms. Percussion, guitar, vibes, Rhodes, horns and flute are often in the mix, with easygoing vocals by Kassin and backup singers. Includes "Mundo Natural", "Potassio", "For a De Area", "O Que Voce Quiser", "Calca De Ginastica", "Sorver-Te", and "Quando Voce Esta Sambando". CD

A killer soundtrack from Henry Mancini – a record that's got both the terror promised in the title, and some sweeter moments that are pure Mancini all the way! Instrumentation is relatively jazzy overall – with some tight horn passages that shift between swinging saxes and lighter woodwind moments – a mixture of west coast cool and grittier elements that really does a nice job of marking the generation of the score. Players aren't listed, but we're betting they're some of Hank's hippest associates – and titles include "Flutter's Ball", "Kelly's Tune", "Tooty Twist", "Teen Age Hostage", "White On White", and "Down By The Wharf".

✨✧ Mass ProductionIn The Purest Form/Massterpiece (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1979/1980. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
2 classics from funk legends Mass Production – back to back in a 2CD set, with 11 bonus tracks too! First up is In The Purest Form – a set that has Mass Production stepping forward as one of the best soul acts in the Cotillion Records roster at the end of the 70s – and maybe one of the hippest modern funk ensembles of the time! These guys have a way of making things sound nice and lean, despite a larger lineup – with a very strong focus on bassline currents, which seem to draw all the other elements into their wake in a mighty nice way! Yet the album's also not a slap-bass affair – as the deeper sounds are used with a nicely understated vibe, and even come through nicely on the mellower numbers – which might be our favorites. Tracks include "Our Thought (Purity)", "With Pleasure", "Next Year","Love You", "Firecracker", and "Can't You See I'm Fired Up". Also includes the great cut "Strollin" – which is a jazzy instrumental with trumpet and vibes, really working together in a tightly jamming groove! Massterpiece features more sweet grooves from Mass Production – a great little set that goes way beyond the usual ensemble funk and boogie at the start of the 80s! The set begins with a slightly mellower, more laidback feel than some of the other records by large funk acts – and that really sets the scene for the rest of the album – keeping a more well-rounded feel to the record, even when things get back into the more uptempo styles the group is known for! There's still plenty of bass in the mix, but the keyboards sparkle equally well – and the record's got some great instrumental moments too. Titles include "Enkuf", "Angel", "Forever", "Shante", "Gonna Make You Love Me", "Your Love", and "Nature Lover". Bonus tracks include 12" single versions of "Love You", "Firecracker", "Can't You See I'm Fired Up", and "Eyeballin" – and 7" mixes of "Shante", "Firecracker", "Love You", and "Angel". CD
