Steve DavisThink Ahead ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2017. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
We've really grown to love the music of trombonist Steve Davis over the years – and although he's always been great, it seems like he just keeps on getting better and better with each new record! This album's certainly a great case in point – as Steve bursts forth with boundless energy right from the start – working with a very well-matched group that really help him hit his heights – a lineup that includes Steve Wilson on alto and soprano, Jimmy Greene on tenor, Larry Willis on piano, Peter Washington on bass, and Lewis Nash on drums! Each track sparkles with that special sort of soul that Davis brings to his phrasing – and the album features lots of original compositions that continue to display his growing talents as a writer, too. Pure greatness throughout – on titles that include "Abena's Gaze", "A Little Understanding", "Atmosphere", "Mountaintop", "Think Ahead", "Farewell Brother", "Evening Shades Of Blue", and a nice version of "Little B's Poem".

VibratorsEpic Years 1976 to 1978 (Pure Mania/V2/In Session At The BBC/Live At The Marquee 1977/bonus tracks) (4CD set) ... CD
Epic/Anagram (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 4CD ... $25.99
A huge document of this early UK punk group – in a special set that includes their first two albums, BBC material, a live set, and even bonus tracks too! First up is the classic Pure Mania – the first and best album by the Vibrators, a band that maybe can't really be considered as first wave punk in the purest sense – but who still made a helluva punky racket all the same! The professional studio sheen and lack of angry politics of the record sets Mania apart from some of the more influential albums that came in the months before and after – but the energy on the record is maybe right up there with the best by the Damned, and the group's approach helped set the wheels in motion for the far less hostile new wave scene that was on the way – which then, in turn, helped transform the larger world of rock in the process. Was there ever a better year for stripped down, punchy rock than 1977? Tracks include "Into The Future", "Yeah Yeah Yeah", "Sweet Sweet Heart", "Keep It Clean", "Baby Baby", "Petrol", "London Girls", "Wrecked On You", and more. Next is Vibrators 2, from the following year – a set that still really holds onto all the short sharp shock of the group's debut – and which also never lets the major label setting get in the way of the loud and fast drums and guitars! There's a vibe here that really paves the way for countless UK imitators to come – and at times, there's almost a bit of a Jam sort of catchiness to some of the tunes. Titles include "Automatic Lover", "Public Enemy No 1", "Destroy", "Nazi Baby", "War Zone", "Sulphate", "24 Hour People", and "Troops Of Tomorrow". CD3 features 18 BBC recordings from 1976 through 1978 – three John Peel shows, and one Old Grey Whistle Test performance! Last CD features a smoking live set from the summer of 1977 – 19 tracks, recorded live at the Marquee! Box also features notes – and bonus tracks include live versions of "Stiff Little Fingers" and "London Girls" – plus "Automatic Lover (single)", "Judy Says", and "Pushing Too Hard". CD

✨✧ Donald ByrdAt The Half Note Cafe Vol 2 ... CD
Blue Note, Early 60s. Used ... $4.99
One of the greatest Donald Byrd albums ever – a smoking live performance spread out over two different records – all with some of the tightest, most grooving work that Byrd ever recorded in his early years on Blue Note! Part of the strength of the set is the group – as Don's trumpet is alongside the brilliant baritone of Pepper Adams – who plays with the deftness of a tenor, but with a richer, fuller sound – and the group also includes the great Duke Pearson on piano, who has this way of comping out tunes that are soulful, but richly lyrical too. The group's completed by Lex Humprhies on drums and Laymon Jackson on bass – and titles on this second volume include a stunning long version of Pearson's "Jeanine", plus the tracks "Pure D. Funk" and "Kimyas". CD

Neil DiamondVelvet Gloves & Spit (second pressing) ... LP
Uni, 1968. Very Good+ ... $0.99
Neil Diamond's first official LP for the Uni label – originally released in 1968 – a great record that was initially way underappreciated! This is a solid portrait of Neil that's too often overlooked – with his heart-on-sleeve lyrical sensibility and anthemic songcraft on full display long before the glittery, superstar trappings of his 70s ouvre! His vocals and catchy tunefulness are as extroverted as ever, in a post Brill Building groove that's B-I-G, loads of fun, and not nearly as hamfisted as later stuff! Includes "Two-Bit Manchild", "Pot Smokers Song" (OK, this one is pure honeyglazed ham – but it's the good tasty kind), "Brooklyn Roads", "Sunday Sun", "Practically Newborn", "Knackelflerg", "Shilo", "Merry-Go-Round" and more.

Stan Getz & Luiz BonfaJazz Samba Encore! ... LP
Verve, 1963. Very Good- Gatefold ... $11.99
Hardly an "encore" of the first Stan Getz Jazz Samba album – as this set's got a slightly different feel, and lots of great elements that make it really unique! This time around, Brazilian musician Luiz Bonfa is on guitar – already a skilled proponent of the bossa by the time of the record, and arguably one of the few who really got it going back home in Rio. Stan's tenor sounds wonderful – as carefully and soufully blown as on the first set, but also with some new colors and tones too. Bonfa's wife Maria Toledo sings a bit on the record – hinting at Stan's work to come with Astrud Gilberto (this album was cut right before the Getz/Gilberto collaboration) – and the record also features added work on piano and guitar from the great Antonio Carlos Jobim – more than enough proof that the album's got a pure bossa pedigree! Titles include "Menina Flor", "Ebony Samba", "Saudade Vem Correndo", "Sambalero", "Samba De Duas Notas", and "Mania De Maria". LP, Vinyl record album

MebusasBlood Brothers ... CD
Academy, 1973. New Copy ... $11.99
Beautiful grooves from the Nigerian scene of the 70s – a set of really unique grooves, and the only-ever album from the enigmatic Mebusas! There's kind of a tripped-out feel to some of these tracks – Afro Funk, but taken left of center from the style of Fela – thanks to some weird keyboard bits, odd production touches, and some occasional psychedelic guitar – which really fuzzes things up, and almost creates a cross-cultural vibe that should have gotten this album play up in London, or over in New York! Lyrics are in English, and some of the tracks have a heavy dose of American funk, too – yet others are pure 70s African funk all the way through – a wonderful blend of modes that really keeps things interesting. Titles include "Son Of Mr Bull Dog", "Do You Know", "Grooving Out On Life", "Kwashioko", "Blood Brothers", "Return/Pada", and "I Wonna Do It". CD

✨✧ Percy SledgePercy Sledge Way/Take Time To Know Her (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Edsel (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
Two rare albums of southern soul from Percy Sledge – back to back on one CD – with bonus tracks too! In case you're not hip, the Percy Sledge Way is a deeply soulful one – rooted in the best 60s southern soul traditions, and carried off to perfection on this near-lost Atlantic set! The album's better even than Percy's debut for the label – recorded by Quin Ivy at his legendary Quinvy studios – with session players that include Muscle Shoals legends Spooner Oldham, Roger Hawkins, and Jimmy Johnson. The style is prime Muscle Shoals at its best – pure, simple, and uncomplicated – served up in a full sound that features backing vocals on a number of tracks, and a great set list that includes the tracks "Dark End Of The Street", "I Had A Talk With My Woman", "My Special Prayer", "Drown In My Own Tears", "You Don't Miss Your Water", and "What Am I Living For" – all redone nicely by Percy. Take Time To Know Her again pairs the legendary vocals of Percy Sledge with classic Muscle Shoals production from Quin Ivy – all wrapped around a host of hip tunes that go way past the easy 60s soul hits! The formula here is similar to that cooked up by Otis Redding on Stax, but it goes perhaps a few steps more – relaxing into its own confidence, and hitting an easy, open approach to the material that's neither too "stock", nor too slick. And although Otis first started the groove, Percy really helps push it forward strongly on this record – by bringing a deepening spirit and new sophistication to the music that would help it thrive greatly into the 70s. Many tracks are written by the team of Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham, including "I Love Everything About You", "Out Of Left Field", and "Feed the Flame" – and other titles include "Sudden Stop", "Baby Help Me", "Cover Me", "Between These Arms", and "High Cost Of Leaving". Bonus tracks include "Hard To Believe", "Behind Every Great Man There's A Woman", "Little Girl", "It Can't Be Stopped", and single versions of "Sudden Stop", "It's All Wrong But It's Alright", "Between These Arms", and "Just Out Of Reach".

Reggie YoungForever Young ... CD
Ace (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $11.99
The first-ever album from Reggie Young – quite long overdue, given that Reggie's been in a force in music for almost sixty years – with a huge amount of important work on the Memphis and Nashville music scenes – including classic sessions with Dusty Springfield, Elvis Presley, James Carr, Joe Tex, Wilson Pickett, Willie Nelson, Dobie Gray, John Prine, and countless others too! You've no doubt heard Young's guitar in the lead on some mighty famous tracks – but this set is one of the first to give it long time in the spotlight – on a set of laidback instrumentals that still have Reggie sounding wonderful after all these years – with a trademark blend of country and soul that's pure Memphis – set up in small combo backings that have just the right sort of touches of soulful horns. Titles include "Jennifer", "Exit 209", "Coming Home To Leipers Fork", "Memphis Grease", and "Soul Love". CD

VariousWheedle's Groove Vol 2 – Seattle Funk, Modern Soul, & Boogie 1972 to 1987 ... LP
Light In The Attic, 1970s/Early 80s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
A second set of grooves from the Seattle scene – and a much-needed follow-up to the first Wheedles Groove compilation! This set picks up where the last one left off – still digging the funk and soul of the 70s, but also following the scene into clubby territory, modern soul, and boogie too – with a range of under-discovered gems that groove right into the mid 80s! Just about all the work here is new to our ears – pulled from obscure indie singles from the city's small labels – and served up in some surprisingly sophisticated styles that match all the poise and class of the best Cali soul of the time. Light In The Attic have done a really wonderful job with the package – deep notes that really match the research that went into the record – but a sense of funk and flair that makes the whole thing way more than just a history project. The grooves are totally great – a really fresh discovery, especially if you dig 80s boogie and club – and tracks include "Don't Lose Your Love" by Don Brown, "Get Off The Phone" by Epicentre, "Trouble In Mind" by Malik Din, "Love One Another" by Frederick Robinson III, "I Don't Wanna Lose Your Love" by Bernadette Bascom, "I'm Through With You" by Romel Westwood, "Holding On" by Unfinished Business, "You Turn Me On (Portland session mix)" by Push, "I Wonder Love" by Seattle Pure Dynamite, "Darlin Oh Darlin" by Steppen Stones, and "Let's Backtrack" by Cold Bold & Together.

✨✧ Eric GaleEric Gale – The Definitive Collection ... CD
Columbia/Robinsongs (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the greatest moments ever from guitarist Eric Gale – brought together in one extremely well-chosen batch of tracks! Gale's a legendary figure, even just for his session work alone – which includes performances on hundreds of albums for other artists – but here, the music comes from Gale himself as a leader, pulled from both his own albums on Columbia Records in the 70s and early 80s, and some of his work in the funky combo Stuff! Gale's got a tight tone on guitar – one that's never too self-indulgent, but certainly finds the right sort of soulful flow, no matter what the setting – and unlike some of his contemporaries, who might try to go for some rockish solos, or maybe get a bit too cheesy, Eric's always pure class, all the way through. Other players include Bob James and Richard Tee on keyboards, Hubert Laws on flute, Ralph MacDonald on percussion, and Idris Muhammad on drums – and titles include "Morning Glory", "Forecast", "Dindi", "Thumper", "De Rabbit", "East End West End", "Red Ground", "Ginseng Woman", "Au Privave", "Touch Of Silk", "Oh Mary Don't You Weep", "Gypsy Jello", "Let Me Slip It To You", "Tell It Like It Is", "Killing Me Softly With His Song", "Foots", "My Sweetness","Sara Smile", "Blue Horizon", and "I Know That's Right".

Kudu, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Toots ThielemansSoul Of Toots Thielemans ... CD
Hanover/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the strongest jazz albums we've ever heard from Toots Thielemans – and one of the straightest, too! The session has a no-gimmicks, straight-ahead approach that features Toots grooving on guitar and harmonica in small combo format – working with the Ray Bryant trio, and coming up with a sound that's surprisingly soulful – that pure "Toots" sound we always look for on other records, but don't always find! The addition of Ray's piano is mighty nice – and gives the record a great undercurrent of soul – and bass is by Tommy Bryant, and drums are by Oliver Jackson. There's a bit of sweet whistling next to the guitar on a few tracks, and titles include "Soul", "Nuages", "Misty", "Brother John", and "Confirmation". CD

The crowds seem to get equal time in front of the microphones as James – further enforcing the liveness of the record – and titles include "I'll Never Let You Go", "Good Good Lovin", "Shout & Shimmy", "Like A Baby", and "I'm Tired But I'm Clean".

LC, 1979. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Pure genius from the B Baker Chocolate Company – a set that's equal parts fusion and soul, held together by these rich arrangements that really send the whole thing home! The album's never too slick, yet has a sense of perfection that matches some of the best soulful fusion dates at Blue Note or Fantasy in the mid 70s – a quality that's especially strong on the vocal tracks on the set – one of which features Lew Kirton in the lead! The players are all totally top-shelf – and include Lonnie Smith and Jimmy McGriff on keyboards, John Faddis and Marvin Stamm on trumpets, and Jimmy Ponder on guitar – and the set's got a beautiful balance that few other records like this can match. Lew Kirton sings on "It's Where You're Coming From", and "Dreamer" features Gene Scott – and instrumental tracks include the funky classic "Snowblower", plus "Carousel" and "Spirit Level".

The group still manage to keep the fragile quality that made their first work so great, but they've also got a wonderfully confident approach too – using arrangements from Norman Harris, Bobby Eli, and Vince Montana to soar with a Philly proudness that's totally great – never disco or club, but with a full, rich quality that's totally great. Tracks include their big hit "Three Ring Circus", a nice follow-up to the earlier "Sideshow", and other titles include "Let Me Be The One", "Looking For A Friend", "When Ya Coming Home", and "You Won't Have To Tell Me Goodbye".

Brass Ring featuring Phil BodnerDisadvantages Of You ... LP
Dunhill, 1967. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A real gem from The Brass Ring – and an album that has a goofy cover designed to recall the famous TV commercial that used the title hit! The record itself is a work of pure genius – tightly compressed easy instrumentals, all in that unique Brass Ring mode – a sound that's sweetly stepping, slightly Latin, and peppered with great sax parts on top of slinky organ lines! The groove is much more stripped-down than other material of its type at the time, with sax in the lead, and small combo rhythms that really sound great – almost a distillation of all the best 60s influences from bossa Brazil and A&M. Tracks are wonderful too – and titles include "Music To Watch Girls By", "The Dis-Advantages Of You", "I Will Wait For You", "The Dating Game", and "A Man & A Woman". All this, and a wonderful cover of a short old guy with a tall sexy blonde! LP, Vinyl record album

Universal, Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Seminal work by one of the greatest harmony groups from 60s Brazil – the bossa-era Os Cariocas, a group who took the American styles of The Four Freshmen and The Hi-Los, and turned them onto a set of bossa rhythms! Like their earlier American counterparts, Os Cariocas have a style that's sweet and jazzy at the same time – touched here by a bit of the sadness of some bossa themes, and always set up in some beautifully airy backings. CD features 14 tracks that include "Pra Que Chorar", "Amanhecendo", "Garota De Ipanema", "Desafinado", "Tem Do", "Ela E Carioca", "Samba Da Pergunta", "Tim Tim Por Tim Tim", and "Preciso Aprender A Ser So".

Sidney BechetBechet Souvenirs (with On Parade & Ambiance Bechet) ... CD
Vogue/Sony (France), 1951/1952. New Copy ... $8.99 11.99
Some of the purest work to ever capture the genius of Sidney Bechet were his recordings in Paris – where the respectful record labels allowed the reedman just the right sort of space for his amazing tone and heartfelt emotion! These sides are a bit late in Bechet's career, but really represent him perfecting his approach, too – never overdone, never gimmicky, and not even trying for any easy cliches that might please the overseas audiences – and instead just right on the money, with a perfect sense of economy in his solos, and a mindblowing tone that will grab you from the very first note on the album! Bechet blows soprano sax throughout – with a tone that was a huge influence on the Coltrane generation – and works with French musicians on all sessions – the first of which features a group led by clarinetist Andre Reweliotty, one more date with clarinetist Claude Luter, and the last a set of "all stars" that includes Guy Longnon on trumpet. CD features 24 tracks in all – material from three different 10" LP releases – with tracks that include "Apex Blues", "Darling Nelly Gray", "Sleepy Time Gal", "Le Marchand De Poissons", "Pattes De Mouche", "Ghost Of The Blues", "Blues", "Girl's Dance", "Because Of You", and his classic "Petite Fleur".

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".

✨✧ Niela MillerSongs Of Leaving ... LP
Numero, 1962. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Spare, crackling and soulful folk material from singer and guitarist Niela Miller – an under acknowledged figure in the 50s & 60s folk & folk rock canon – whose 1962 acetate of 50s recordings are now issued officially by the lost recordings saviors at Numero! Much of the lore around Neila leads to her melody for the incredible, soul shaking tune "Baby Don't Go To Town", which is effectively argued as a vital cog in the wheel that turned and turned throughout the 60s, eventually evolving into Jimi Hendrix's "Hey Joe" – but historical significance to other artists aside, Miller's a vital force here all on her own. A figure in the NYC folk scene, Niela works in the solo rural blues inflected side of the folk sound, never sounding less than purely authentic. She dips into a deep well of emotion without compromising on a spiritual strength, and this a worthy rescue effort by the folks at Numero! Titles include "Down Hearted Man", "Baby Don't Go To Town", "Too Long Blues", "You Gotta Know To Love", "Daddy Went To Jail", "Hushabye Blues", "Mean World Blues", "Goodbye New York", "Goodbye Blues" and "Jenny Gal".
