✨✧ BreakawayBreakaway/Straight On To The Top ... CD
Breakaway/BBE (UK), Late 70s. Used Gatefold ... $10.99
A pair of completely rare albums from Breakaway – a St Louis combo from the late 70s – with a groove that's equal part jazzy club and blue-eyed soul! Breakaway is the group's debut – recorded in 1977 with a surprisingly tight sound – especially given that the group were essentially a local club act who got the chance to record a bit in a local studio! The feel is very much in the best LA mode of the time, but maybe a bit looser too – with emphasis on some funky riffing from the male members of the group, plus sweet lead vocals from singer Kathy Newbry-Taylor – an artist who might have been pop, had she worked on the coasts – but who stretches her style nicely here. The album's been made famous by both On Track and Americana comps on BBE – and titles include "There's A New Group In Town", "Who Was It This Time", "Love My Eyes", "Understudy DJ", "Everything's Been Said About You", and "My Symphony". Right On To The Top is the second set from Breakaway – and the album already shows a great deal of growth – especially in the territory of rhythm! Breakaway have definitely dug some of the best club modes from the New York scene – and work here in a jazzy disco style that's filled with sweet keyboard lines alongside the female lead vocals – all with a vibe that's nicely stripped-down, and still lives up to the indie spirit of the group. The set features some guest work on horns, which nicely expands the sound – and titles include "Straight On To The Top", "You Are Love", "Back & Forth", "There's A New Tree In The Forest", "Work With The Music", and "Breakaway".

Breakaway/BBE (UK), 1979. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99
The second set from St Louis funk combo Breakaway – and the album already shows a great deal of growth – especially in the territory of rhythm! Breakaway have definitely dug some of the best club modes from the New York scene – and work here in a jazzy disco style that's filled with sweet keyboard lines alongside the female lead vocals – all with a vibe that's nicely stripped-down, and still lives up to the indie spirit of the group. There's some jazz currents on the instrumentation, and the set features some guest work on horns, which nicely expands the sound – and helps give the blue-eyed soul vocals a nice sort of punch. Titles include "Straight On To The Top", "You Are Love", "Back & Forth", "There's A New Tree In The Forest", "Work With The Music", and "Breakaway". LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownSoul On Top ... LP
King, 1970. Very Good- Gatefold ... $14.99
A different James Brown album – but a nice one! James doesn't sing soul, so much as jazz – in front of large backings by Louis Bellson, with arrangements by Oliver Nelson that are in his best 60s soul mode – and which give the album a very very groovy feel overall! The record's not funky, but James' vocals are plenty darn soulful – and the album is proof that he could be a huge talent in just about any mode that he chose – shining with a brilliance that was irrepressible! James covers a few of his older tracks on the album, and sings a few other pop standards – and titles include nice versions of "It's Magic", "The Man In The Glass", "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag", "That's My Desire", and "I Need Your Key (To Turn Me On)".

✨✧ Paul ChambersBass On Top (RVG remaster edition – with bonus track) ... CD
Blue Note, 1957. Used ... $4.99
One of the most obscure of the Paul Chambers albums on Blue Note – and one of the most interesting as well! Although best known for his solid rhythm work on late 50s hardbop recordings, Chambers breaks out here with a more introspective, more exploratory style on the bass – using the instrument "on top", as a lead solo force in a group with Kenny Burrell on guitar, Hank Jones on piano, and Art Taylor on drums. The sound is surprisingly soulful, and modern yet swinging – in the manner of Oscar Pettiford's best sides of this style. Titles include "Yesterdays", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "Confessin", and "The Theme". CD also features the bonus track "Chamber Mates" CD

Paul ChambersPaul Chambers – Mosaic Select (Whims Of Chambers/Chambers Music/The Transition Session/Paul Chambers Quintet/Bass On Top) ... CD
Mosaic/Blue Note, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 3CD ... $34.99
Some of the best work ever recorded by bassist Paul Chambers – one of the greatest bass players in jazz! This excellent 3CD box set features the bulk of albums that Paul Chambers recorded for Blue Note as a leader, plus an earlier gem recorded for the Imperial label, and another session for the Transition label. Together, the records give an incredible picture of Chambers' work – showing why most jazz players of the 50s regarded him as one of the most important forces on his instrument, and why Chambers had some unique talents that made him one of the few bassists to regularly record albums as a leader. Players on the albums include John Coltrane, Kenny Burrell, Donald Byrd, Clifford Jordan, Pepper Adams, and Curtis Fuller – and the albums include Chamber's Music, Whims Of Chambers, Paul Chambers Quintet, Bass On Top, and Transition Session. 32 tracks in all!

Maybe the best of their mid 70s records for RCA, in a similar style tp a lot of other East Coast groups from the time who had bigger hits and more mainstream popularity, even if few of their peers were truly as wonderful as the mighty Choice Four! On Top Of Clear is a close to perfect mix of uptempo cuts and ballads, with some of the sweetest lead and harmony vocals of the 70s! Van McCoy arranged and produced, and titles includes their single "Hey, What's That Dance You're Doing (Tom Moulton Mix)", "Two Different Worlds", "Mysterious Lady (Tom Moulton Mix)", "Beautiful Glow", "Come Down To Earth", and "Everybody's Got A Story". 4 bonus tracks on the FTG Soul & Funk Classics edition – "A Time For Celebration" (short version and long version), plus the great, longer 12" versions of "Two Different Worlds" and "Come Down To Earth".

Tubby HayesInvitation – Live At The Top Alex 1973 ... CD
Acrobat (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
One of the last performances ever from the legendary Tubby Hayes – a small club concert, done with a hardbop vibe that rivals some of his important albums of the late 50s! Tracks are nice and long, and Tubby's wonderfully imaginative with his solos – mostly tenor, but a bit of flute too – and although the recording quality is slightly muted, the level of performance is more than high enough to rise above that slight drawback – and in some odd way, Hayes maybe comes through even more strongly, as the rhythm trio's a bit muted. Titles include "Trenton Place", "Seven Steps To Heaven", "Invitation", "Without A Song", and "Poinciana". CD

Debby MooreMy Kind Of Blues ... LP
Top Rank, 1959. Very Good ... $19.99
A cool little record from vocalist Debby Moore – an artist who whistles as well as she sings, and often manages to mix both talents strongly in the space of a single track! The album's got a slightly laidback, slightly bluesy feel – still jazz at the core, but in a way that has Debby hitting plenty of late nite, blue-tinged modes – a bit similar to Ernestine Anderson or Lorez Alexandria at the same points in their careers, and handled with similar small combo backing. Players include Harry Edison on trumpet – who sweetens up the sound nicely – plus Jimmy Jones on piano, Barry Galbraith on guitar, George Duvivier on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. Titles include "How Come You Do Me Like You Do", "My Baby Loves Me True", "Five Months Two Weeks Two Days", "Come On Home To Me", "Sent For You Yesterday", "Nothin But Trouble On My Mind", and "No Love No Nothin". CD features the bonus track "Get A Feeling". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousSoul Of Money Records Vol 2 ... CD
Money/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer soul from the LA underground of the late 60s – a motherlode of work from west coast indie Money Records! The label is every bit as hip as you'd guess from its name – a right on the money blend of the best elements in soul at the time – all served up with some of the tightest production west of the Mississippi, and an undeniable ear for the grittiest side of a groove. There's plenty of great twists and turns to many of these tracks – and in a way, the Money sound of this time reminds us a fair bit of the best work coming from Detroit indies operating in the shadows of Motown. Yet the grooves here are also a fair bit fresher because they're often less familiar – never over-compiled like some of the Motor City tracks, and perfectly presented here with top-shelf Kent Soul standards, both in the mastering and notes that go with the set! Titles include a few previously unissued numbers – with 24 tracks that include "Losing You" by Eddie Horan, "I Thought It Over" by Gwenn Stewart, "My Belief" by The MM's & The Peanuts, "Too Late Now" by The Mysteries, "Strange Things Are Happening To Me" by Eric Williams, "Living A Lie" by Bobby Angelle, "Love Insurance" by Henry Strogin, "The Dance Is Over" by Bettye Swann, "Lost My Love Yesterday" by The Larks, "Ain't That Kinda Sad" by The Question Marks, "Should I Take A Chance" by Ted Walters, "Tam A Rind" by Hank Jacobs & The TKOs, and "You Bet I Would" by Pat Livingston.

Monty AlexanderSunday Night ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1985. New Copy ... $9.99
A nice little set from Monty Alexander – a Sunday Night session recorded with the same group, on the same weekend as his Saturday Night album! Monty Alexander's always great in a trio, but we really love the pianist when he's trying to add a little something extra to the mix – as he does here in a quartet performance that features some nice added percussion from Robert Thomas! The tracks have that warm glow and open flow that Alexander first started bringing to his music in the 70s – with sensitive rhythm work here from Reggie Johnson on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – but the added percussion really helps things swing at a slightly higher level, giving a gentle kick to some cuts, while Monty's still able to open up with some warmly lyrical lines over the top. Titles include "Old Devil Moon", "Who Cares", "Renewal", "African Bee", "Joyspring", and "More Or Wes". CD

Tony AllenHome Cooking ... LP
Comet (France), 2002. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $21.99
Stunning work from superdrummer Tony Allen – light years ahead of his original Afro Beat recordings with Fela! Tony's a consummate artist who's never stopped growing, and he's taken the energy of the Afro Funk revival of recent years, and used it to inspire him in new creative directions. The core rhythmic approach here certainly stretches back to Allen's classic work – but on top of that are a lot more sounds and influences, everything from sweet soulful funk to hip hop, broken beat, and beyond. Recorded in London with guest work by Eska, Ty, Damon Albarn, Mary Lee, and Norman Jemott – and titles that include "Home Cooking", "What's Your Fashion", "Eparapo", "Crazy Afrobeat", "Don't Fight", "Woman To Man", "Kindness", and "Every Season".

Capitol, 1962. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A sweet little album from Laurindo Almeida and his "Bossa Nova All Stars" – not a group of Brazilian musicians, and instead a hip set of LA players who really help make the set sparkle! There's a bit more jazz here than on some of Laurindo's other Capitol records of the time – a great 60s update to the groove he first forged in the 50s with Bud Shank – featuring even more swinging rhythms, inventive instrumentation, and a slightly larger group with players who include Jimmy Rowles on organ, Howard Roberts on guitar, Bob Cooper on tenor, Don Fagerquist on trumpet, Justin Gordon on flute, and Shelly Manne, Chico Guerrero, and Milt Holland on percussion! The use of organ is especially nice – a warm wave of sound on top of some great bossa rhythms – and titles include "Naked City Theme", "Teach Me Tonight", "Desafinado", "Mr Lucky", "Theme From Route 66", and "One Note Samba".

The Tijuana sound is very firmly in place by the time of this set – Mexican-inspired, but compressed down into a sweet little LA groove in that magical A&M way – never too over the top, done in a way that takes a previously-hokey brassy sound, and smoothes it out for the Now Sound generation! Titles include the hit single "Whipped Cream", plus "Taste Of Honey", "Green Peppers", "Bittersweet Samba", "Lemon Tree", "Ladyfingers", and "Butterball". CD

Prestige, Early 50s. Very Good ... $14.99
Nice nice album on Prestige, bringing together Jug's earlier sides in 2 different settings. The first batch has Ammons "battling" Sonny Stitt in a set of stuff that features hard twin tenors in the frontline, with the kind of cutting contests the two of them would perform live all over the country. Titles on that one include "Stringin The Jug", "New Blues Up & Down", and "You Can Depend On Me". The other side of the record features Ammons in one of those great Prestige open-ended groups – with crack players like Art Farmer, Lou Donaldson, and Freddie Redd – all soloing long and soulfully on two tracks – "Woofin & Tweetin" and "Juggernaut".

A definite soul summit for the time – with 3 top-shelf players in the lead, all getting plenty of room to do their thing! Both Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt are on tenor in the front, working with the respect and confidence they'd forged together on other co-led sessions from the time – and Jack McDuff's a great addition to the set, playing Hammond with his newly-lean tone, and really helping things move along nicely. Drummer Charlie Persip has a nicely booming style here – one that gets the group out of the box from the get-go, and McDuff's handling all the bass work on the organ, which always makes for a tight rhythmic romp! Most tunes are in that great raw Prestige mode from the old days, as you'd guess by titles like "Tubby", "Dumplin", and "Shuffle Twist" – alongside other numbers that include "Sleeping Susan" and "Out In The Cold Again".

Gladstone Gladdy AndersonGlad Sounds (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Merritone/Dub Store (Japan), 1968. Used ... $9.99
Sweet instrumental sounds from pianist Gladdy Anderson – working here with superb backings from Lynn Taitt & The Jets – who step back a bit to let the piano take the lead on most numbers! The style is rocksteady, but a nicely laidback version of the groove, too – so that Anderson's work on the keys tinkles beautifully over the top, while Taitt underscores some of the better elements with his deeper guitar lines – all recorded with a sense of pacing and use of echo that makes the whole album nice and trippy throughout! Titles include "Intensified 68", "Chances", "If I Only Had Time", "ABC Rocksteady", "Love Me Forever", and "Ride Me Donkey". CD

Ashford & SimpsonWarner Brothers Years – Hits, Remixes, & Rarities ... CD
Warner, Late 70s/2008. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
Ashford & Simpson may have gotten their start at Motown, but they really found their groove at Warner Brothers – as you'll hear on this massive collection of tracks from their landmark late 70s years at the label! Even many decades later, the strength of this music is undeniable – a careful blend of soulful roots and upbeat rhythms – yet all in ways that never fall into standard disco cliches of the period! The Ashford & Simpson groove is a really unique one – always deeply soulful, even when well polished, and carefully put together with some of the best studio elements the pair could get their hands on – then produced to perfection with a sparkling sound that's years ahead of its time. This 2CD set offers up a full disc of 70s originals that includes some rare 12" mixes from back in the day – and it also includes a second CD of contemporary remixes that really pay tribute to the classics – the sort of modern re-edits and mixes that always keep the original sounds, styles, and rhythms intact. CD 1 features 14 tracks that include "Over & Over (12" disco mix)", "Have You Ever Tried It", "One More Try (12" disco mix)", "Send It", "Top Of The Stairs", "Don't Cost You Nothing (12" disco mix)", "It Seems To Hang On (12" disco mix)", "Found A Cure (12" disco mix)", "Bourgie Bourgie", and "Love Don't Make It Right (12" disco mix)". CD 2 features 9 tracks that include "Stay Free (Dim's club mix)", "Found A Cure (Tom Moulton mix)", "It Seems To Hang On (Tommy Musto re-touch)", "Bourgie Bourgie (Joe Claussell's classic rmx)", "One More Try (Dimitri re-edit)", and "Love Don't Make It Right (Joey Negro mix)".

AssociationAnd Then Along Comes The Association ... LP
Warner, 1966. Very Good- ... $1.99
The first full length album recorded by the legendary Association – a classic bit of Sunshine Pop that would forever change the sound of the 60s! Although familiar, the album's got an amazing depth that still never fails to surprise today – odd production twists and turns, courtesy of a young Curt Boettcher; personally youthful harmonies that slip as often as they soar; and just the right touches of flower power to move the group away from their folkie roots into the new sun of a changing decade! The hits "Along Comes Mary" and "Cherish" are almost worth the price of admission – but lesser-known cuts are even better, and show a wealth of great work penned by members of the group! Other titles include "Standing Still", "Message Of Our Love", "Changes", "I'll Be Your Man", "Blistered", "Round Again", "Remember" and "Enter The Young". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a split spine and partially split top seam.)

✨✧ Average White BandSoul Searching ... LP
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good ... $4.99
Sublime mid 70s work from The Average White Band – and a record that really has the group deepening their groove a bit – moving past the heavier funk of their roots, into some mellower grooves that are totally great! There's a great undercurrent of jazz in some of the playing here – a real consciousness for clever changes, hip instrumental flourishes, and some other fusion-inspired moments – although all delivered with an understated quality that's mighty nice. The feel's a bit like The Headhunters on their second album, or some of the great Wayne Henderson groups on Fantasy – a great mix of jazz funk and soul that makes the record one of our favorites by the group. Titles include "Sunny Days", "Digging Deeper", "Love Your Life", "Queen Of My Soul", and the stellar mellow "A Love Of Your Own". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the heavy inner sleeve. Cover has an unglued top seam.)

AwakeningHear, Sense & Feel ... CD
Black Jazz, 1972. Used ... $9.99
An excellent funky fusion group from Chicago – and one of the best ensembles to record for the Black Jazz label! The group's made up of hip Chicago underground players – and includes Ken Chaney on electric piano, Ari Brown on saxes, and Frank Gordon on trumpet – a lineup that comes together with the same sort of righteous energy and soulful power as Windy City contemporaries like The Pharoahs or Earth Wind & Fire! On this first LP, they jam with a mix of righteous funk and spiritual soul jazz, mixing electric piano, choppy reeds, and tight horns with a powerful rhythm backing that never goes too over the top, and which stays in a good modal mode that works great for the soloists – soaringly expressive at a personal level, yet coming together with a really righteous group feel in the end. Tracks include "Jupiter", "Brand New Feeling", "Convulsions", and "Kera's Dance". CD

Bacao Rhythm & Steel BandBacao Rhythm & Steel Band ... CD
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
A fantastic full length set from the Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band – a group who've really won us over in recent years with a fast flurry of funky 45s! The group take an older steel band sound, and forge it to a might tighter rhythmic impulse – with a sound that's often even funkier than the best (and few) funky steel band tracks from the 70s – served up with razor-sharp instrumentation, and great production in a Daptone/Soul Fire mode – which really keeps things sounding raw all the way through! The group's got strong ties to the Mighty Mocambos – and some other contemporary funk acts too – and the music is top-shelf all the way through, a funkier full steel band record than you'll ever hope to find. Titles include "Beetham Highway Ride", "Scorpio", "Pimp", "Tropical Heat", "Laventille Road March", "Round & Round", "Port Of Spain Hustle", "Jungle Fever", "Love Like This", and "Dog Was A Doughnut".

Bar-KaysFlying High On Your Love ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A great step forward for The Bar-Kays – an album that actually has them taking on a few mellower moments, amidst the heavy funk you might expect – yet all without softening their groove at all! The album's very much in the best spirit of the group's Mercury debut – still recorded in Memphis, with production that's tight, but never uptight – enough to firmly put the group at the top of the funk superstar scene of the mid 70s, yet never sell out the rich Memphis groove that first got them going! Titles include "You Can't Run Away", "Let's Have Some Fun", "Can't Keep My Hands Off You", "Whatever It Is", and "Shut the Funk Up". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a partially unglued bottom seam with a gold promo stamp on the back.)

BarrabasPower ... LP
RCA, 1973. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Funky rocking sounds from this hip Spanish group – with a bit of a tribal sound that's pretty sweet! The bass is pretty thundering, the drums are strong, and there's some cool piano and flute in the mix that give the cuts a bit of a Latin flourish. Most cuts have vocals, kind of in a rock-sounding mode – but the instrumentation is mostly funky all the way, and the album fits in well next to early 70s records by groups like War or some of their LA cronies. Titles include "The Horse", "Keep On Moving", "You Know", "Casanova", "Mr Money", and "Children". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear, some splitting on the top seam, and a cutout notch.)

Barrino BrothersLivin' High Off The Goodness Of Your Love (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Invictus/P-Vine (Japan), 1973. Used ... $19.99
The only album ever by The Barrino Brothers – a stellar early 70s harmony group, and one who could sing with the best of the east coast scene of the time! The whole set's got a feel that's very much in the best mode of groups like The Modulations, Soul Generation, and even The O'Jays – as the group's got a deeper, more solid sound than some of the more fragile outfits of their era. Production is very strong – thanks to the Holland-Dozier-Holland powerhouse sound of the time – and the group's vocals are supported on a full groove that really helps send the whole thing over the top! The title cut "Livin High Off The Goodness Of Your Love" is a stone classic – and other nice tracks include "Rain", "I Had it All", and "It Doesn't Have to Be That Way". CD
