BreakawayStraight On To The Top (with bonus CD) ... LP
Breakaway/BBE (UK), 1979. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
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
(Includes bonus CD of the album!)

Nagaoka (Japan), New Item ... $4.99
A cool open-top plastic sleeve for storing your CDs!

There's no flap at all to get in the way – and the sleeves are great if you store your CDs on shelves vertically, and don't like the outside cases to get scratched up. This version fits a range of multi-disc packages – including older-styled jewel cases that handle 2 to 4 CDs, and most of the contemporary larger slipcover styled CD packages too. Record Care

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

Lloyd Charmers & OthersBest Of Lloyd Charmers – 50 Top Reggae Tunes ... CD
Trojan (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99
Tremendous work from Lloyd Charmers – a one-man powerhouse in early reggae – singer, musician, and producer too – with an undeniable ear for the hippest, most soulful sounds around! In fact, Charmers was one of the few to strongly hold onto an American soul influence, even as the music was shifting – and the result is not just some superb soul covers, remade with a new Kingston groove – but also great tracks of Lloyd's own, which can have echoes of styles from Detroit, Chicago, or Philly – although an undeniable reggae approach overall! This 2CD set brings together two full albums that feature Charmers in the lead, and working with other contemporaries too – the records Lloyd Charmers In Session and Best Of Lloyd Charmers – plus lots of bonus tracks too. 50 tracks in all – with titles that include "A Lover's Quarrel" by BB Seaton, "Thula Thula" by The Messengers, "Children Of The Night" by The Chosen Few, "Take A Message To Mary" by Ken Parker "Blue Moon" by Guts McGeorge, and "Just As Long As You Need Me" by Busty Brown – plus "One Big Unhappy Family", "Look A Py Py", "Color Him Father", "Play Me", "Save Their Souls", "Soul Of England", and "Dollars & Bonds" by Lloyd Charmers hiself.

FusionTop Soul ... CD
Alba/Lion, 1975. New Copy ... $8.99
Top Soul indeed, as Fusion is a hip Chilean funk band from the early 70s – one who take plenty of influence from American grooves, but also bring in their own soulful elements as well! The sound here is somewhere between Kool & The Gang and Banda Black Rio – with quite a bit of the blend of the latter, especially in the way more local percussion riffs fill out grooves that have a solid grounding in American funk! Instrumentation listed is tenor, guitar, keyboards, bass, and drums – but there's clearly a lot more horns too, as well as some very hip percussion – played in ways that are almost more Brazilian than straight Latin – with a really fluid sensibility that jams nicely with the grooves. There's a slight bit of vocals on the record, but most of the album is instrumental – and titles include versions of Sly Stone's "Thank You" and The Crusaders "Way Back Home" – plus "Dedos", "Balada De Matias", "Dee Blooz", "Para Toda La Gente", "Pulsearas", and "Lamentation".

Cleo LaineIf We Lived On Top Of A Mountain/Portrait ... CD
Vocalion (UK), 1968/1971. New Copy ... $16.99
A pair of pivotal albums from British singer Cleo Laine – both of which really have her finding her own groove! If We Lived On Top Of A Mountain is a set that's still got a fair bit of jazz in the mix, but which also has Cleo Laine using that wonderfully deep voice of hers to step into some cool, sophisticated territory of her own! Even the older tunes get this unusual vibe in the hands of arrangers Les Reed and Johnny Dankworth – and Dankworth gets to solo a bit on the record on alto, alongside Tony Coe on tenor, Laurie Holloway on piano, and Derek Watkins on trumpet. Laine's always in the spotlight, though – and this hip late 60s setting really brings on the best in her vocals – on titles that include the sublime title cut "If We Lived On The Side Of A Mountain", plus "Remind Me", "Song Without Words", "Sure As You're Born", and "Who Walks In When I Walk Out". Portrait is one of the groovier sides ever recorded by Cleo Laine – at one level an album that features some of her older approaches to American standards, but at another a record that's showing some key touches of the changes going on in British jazz at the time! The rhythms are much more pronounced than before – leaping around with some great jazzy changes on the best numbers, in a way that makes for inventive arrangements that really transform the tunes – and which seem to allow Cleo's weirdly floating style of singing to resonate more with the hipper, younger generation of jazz vocalists showing up on the European scene. Backings are by John Dankworth, and the album's got a great original called "Bossa Palma Nova", a wicked take on "Feeling Good", an unusual Mike Gibbs number called "Model Cities Programme", a fuzzy guitar take on James Taylor's "Night Owl", and a nicely trippy version of "Aquarius". But even the standards sound nice too – and they include "That Certain Feeling", "I Could Write A Book", and "The Look Of Love". CD

Byron Lee & The DragonairesUptown Top Ranking ... CD
VP, Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
Some of the best work you'll ever hear from the mighty Byron Lee – not the watered-down sound of later records for the tourists, but all the sharp, soulful sounds that made him one of the hippest talents working in the Caribbean scene of the 60s! Byron's got a groove here that's heavy on influences from the American instrumental underground – almost garage guitar roots, turned towards more Caribbean rhythms – sometimes with a Cuban current at the bottom, other times with more of a Kingston or Nassau vibe – always very hip on the rhythmic tip, with loads of electric guitar and keyboards over the top. The tunes are as playful as you'd guess from the titles – and tracks include "Frankenstein", "Last Night", "Jamaican Ska", "Dragon's Paradise", "Goldfinger", "Soul Ska", "Rock Steady", "Slow Run", "Apache", "We Five", "Reggae Makossa", "Dumplin's", and "Who-Dun-It" – plus a dubby funk cover of "Don't Call Me N***er, Whitey", CD

✨✧ Prince Phillip MitchellTop Of The Line (remastered & expanded) ... CD
Atlantic/WEA (UK), 1979. Used ... $9.99
A classic set of smooth 70s soul from an under-recognized genius! Phillip Mitchell is a bit like his Atlantic Records contemporary Sam Dees – in that he wrote a lot of material for other singers, recorded a handful of singles, and worked mostly in the southern scene – but he also had a sophisticated, modern style that sounded a lot more like work coming out of New York, Philly, or Chicago. This lost album for Atlantic is a great example of that fact – as it was recorded at Muscle Shoals, but also features some Philly elements too – creating a great mix of modes that's wonderfully unique! There's a feel here that's just like some of the best work from Leroy Hutson, Johnny Bristol, or Leon Ware at the same time – a majestic, mature approach to soul that's simply tremendous. Titles include "In Between Lovers", "Top Of The Line", "I'm So Happy", "Let's Get Wet", "Paying The Price", and "If It Ain't Love It'll Go Away". CD also features the bonus track "Take Me Away (inst)". CD

✨✧ Idris MuhammadBoogie To The Top – The Very Best Of Idris Muhammad ... CD
CTI/Cherry Red (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
All of the best CTI/Kudu Records grooves from funky drummer Idris Muhammad – all gathered together in one sweet collection! Muhammad's a player who's been great right from the start – from his initial funky drumming with Lou Donaldson, right up to recent jazz work that has him still as one of the strongest percussionists of his generation! Yet the mid 70s was an especially strong time in Muhammad's career – as he really found himself as a leader, and opened his style both towards spiritual ends, and some tighter, more groove-based work as well – a redefinition of his older funk drumming towards more 70s soul and club modes. The best cuts from those years are all presented here – in an overstuffed collection of groovers that includes "Loran's Dance", "Power Of Soul", "Baia", "House Of The Rising Sun", "Theme For New York", "Crap Apple", "Could Heaven Ever Be Like This", "Turn This Mutha Out", "Stick It In Your Face", and "Boogie To The Top". CD also features bonus 7" mixes of three of the album tracks too! CD

O'JaysBack On Top ... CD
Bell/Essential, Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Although the O'Jays' Philly International recordings are always touted as some of their best work, we love this early material produced by George Kerr – with a sound that's very similar to classic New Jersey groups like The Moments and The Whatnauts (and which also features a few songs that were covered by those groups, too). The band have heavenly harmonies that are more fragile than on their tightly-sewn Gamble/Huff work, with some elements of the deeper soul that was on some of their earlier recordings. Includes the single "I'll Be Sweeter Tomorrow", plus "I'm So Glad I Found You", "Look Over Your Shoulder", "Going Going Gone", and "I Dig Your Act". Also issued later, under the title "The O'Jays".

Tito PuenteTop Percussion ... LP
RCA, 1958. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the greatest Tito Puente albums from the 50s, and a spare percussion jam session that's right up there with his legendary Puente In Percussion album! The group features Mongo Santamaria, Bill Correa, Julito Collazo, and Enrigue Marti on percussion with Tito – and the only other additional sounds are some occasional vocals, and a pounding bassline. The set's extremely raw, with a very tight groove – and the sound is incredible – easily enough to make this one of Tito's best percussion dates ever! Titles include "Ti Mon Bo", "Elequana", "Bragada", "Alaumba Chemache", "Hot Timbales", and "Four By Two". LP, Vinyl record album

Top Shelf, 2011. New Copy ... $0.99 9.95
A great extension of Alan Moore's original League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen – one that has a version of the group emerging in the British scene in 1969 – in a mad mix of devil worship and psychedelic rock! The tone's a bit lighter than the earlier volumes, but no less compelling – and Kevin O'Neill's artwork seems well-suited to the period represented – especially in his nicely trippier moments! Full color, nicely printed – and be warned, as there's some naughty images inside. Book

Top Shelf, 2012. New Copy ... $0.99 9.95
The new version of the League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen emerge in 2009 – in a post-911, post-recession world that's firmly entwined with the supernatural! Virginia Woolf's Orlando is the main character here – oddly very much in the right spot in space and time to deliver on all her promise – although maybe at a level that's not too far off from more contemporary heroines in graphic novels. Prose is playfully penned by the great Alan Moore – alongside lovely full color artwork from Kevin O'Neill – at a level that almost takes us back to British comics of the late 80s and early 90s.

✨✧ AirtoVirgin Land ... CD
Salvation/King (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
A great little fusion set from Airto – recorded in a mode that's a great bridge between his acoustic roots and some of his smoother albums in years to come! The sound has some key electric elements here – bits of bass, guitar, and keyboards – but there's still a strongly acoustic sound overall too, one that leaves plenty of room for Airto's unique jams on percussion, plus a bit of vocals from the lovely Flora Purim. Airto's got some top-shelf talents helping him out here – Billy Cobham on production, and Stanley Clarke and Milcho Leviev on arrangements – and there's a nice sense of darkness going on that even separates the album from some of Airto's other mid 70s sides on CTI. Titles include "Peasant Dance", "Musikana", "Virgin Land", and "Hot Sand". CD

A great little live set from the glory days of the Toshiko Akiyoshi/Lew Tabackin Big Band – a series of performances from Japan, recorded in 1976, all featuring the ensemble at its best! The double-length nature of the record takes the group even farther than usual – really letting them stretch out with the kind of bold tones and broad colors that made the group so great. Soloists include Bobby Shew on trumpet, Jimmy Knepper on trombone, and Gary Foster on alto sax – alongside leaders Lew Tabackin on tenor and flute, and Toshiko Akioshi on piano. Titles include a nicely dancing reading of the classic "Warning: Success May Be Hazardous To Your Health" – plus "Kogun", "Henpecked Old Man", "Tuning Up", "Since Perry/Yet Another Tear", and "Soliloquy".

Davie Allan & The Arrows/The Hands Of TimeWild Angels – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Tower, Late 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
Classic kitschy biker material from Davie Allan and The Arrows – one of the best-ever groups to play on schlocky soundtracks during the 60s! There's lots of guitar and lots of fuzz – and guessing from the photos of the movie, the music was the best thing about it! Toddler Mike Curb put the whole thing together – but the vibe is much more like some of Allan's excellent guitar instrumental albums of the time – apart from the few more standard rock band tracks you'd find in Curb's other productions from the period. Most of the album's instrumental Arrows work – and tracks include "The Chase", "Bongo Party", "Blues Theme", "Theme From Wild Angels", and "The Unknown Rider" – plus the vocal cuts "Theme From The Wild Angels" by The Visitors and "Midnight Rider" by The Hands Of Time.

A seminal set that really put Tony Allen back on top – a record that showed that Allen was way more than just Fela's drummer, or another Afro Funk artist in general – but instead a really free-thinking, deep-concept musician overall! The album comes from key time that Allen spent on the Paris scene in the 90s – really refining a new sound, while keeping all the best bits from before – creating this new sort of darker groove that almost mixes older percussion with kind of a spacey style that's echoes proggish funk from a range of groups from Can to Cymande! There's loads of cool keyboards and tight guitar lines, and even the vocals have some spacey production that makes them fit nicely with the grooves. Titles include "Asiko", "Get Together", "Black Voices", and "The Same Blood". LP, Vinyl record album

Arnold's group here is at the top of its form – working together with a rich array of tones and colors that show the best legacies of 50s modern jazz in the large ensemble idiom – yet with a lean quality that really allows lots of voice from the soloists, too – a lineup that includes Arne Domnerus, Jan Johansson, Lars Farnlov, Bengt-Arne Wallin, and Georg Riedel! Arrangements are by Wallin, Pete Jacques, and others – but it's Arnold who clearly knows how to make the whole thing hold together this well. Titles include "It's In The Bag", "Margie", "Blues For Nathan", "Cheryl", "Tina", "Per Spelman", "You've Got It", "I Knew It I Knew It", and "King Valiant". CD
(Note: CD is missing back artwork in case – and is priced accordingly.)

✨✧ John ArnoldNeighborhood Science ... LP
Ubiquity, 2003. Near Mint- 2LP ... $4.99
The sound of Detroit rises high on this excellent full length set from John Arnold – a wonderfully soulful set of skittish beats and jazzy grooves! Arnold's working here with artists that include Amp Fiddler, Ayro, Malik Alston, and Mady Kouyate – and grooving in a style that reminds us a lot of our favorite recent underground work from London, but which also has a lot of the pulsating soul of the Detroit scene of the past 20 years! Tunes shift easily between instrumentals and vocal numbers – always with some over the top touches that sets them apart from the run of the mill – and titles include "Broken", "Fabric", "Anaconda", "Neighborhood Science", "Get Yourself Together", and "I Can Be".

Atlantide (Jean Paul Massiera)Atlantide (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Replica (France), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
One of the most rock-oriented sets we've ever heard from JP Massiera – who wrote all the words and music here for a French group who take on the myth of Atlantide! The style mixes tuneful lines on guitar, bass, drums, and percussion – without some of the keyboards you might expect from the prog scene at the time, and instead this warmly harmonic approach on the vocals – at a level that almost seems to take off nicely from the multi-tracking style used by Yes! And there is a bit of cool acoustic guitar soloing – very deft, and another Yes-like touch – but the overall sound of the record is very unique, as you'd expect from the participation of Massiera. Titles include "Images", "Atlantide", "Soleil Noir", "Reverie", and "Le Regard Des Dieux". LP, Vinyl record album
(These copies have a small top seam split, but have been reduced in price.)

✨✧ Roy Ayers & Wayne HendersonPrime Time ... LP
Polydor, 1980. Very Good ... $4.99
A funky classic from the team of Roy Ayers and Wayne Henderson – both at the top of their game here, and effortlessly mixing together jazz, funk, and soul! The record really seems to embrace the best of both artists' styles – some of the bassy groovers that Wayne did so well himself, and while producing for other artists – and those snakey, soulful numbers that we love so much in the late 70s work from Roy Ayers – ultra-sophisticated, but still plenty darn grooving – and some of the most sensual soul you'll ever hope to hear. The whole thing's great – and titles include "Weekend Lover", "Thank You Thank You", "Can You Dance", "It Ain't Your Sign It's Your Mind", "You Make Me Feel Like Rockin With Ya", "Have Your Way", and "Million Dollar Baby".
