ZZ TopRio Grande Mud (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
London/Rhino, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
Classic work from this Texas trio – pulled from a time when they were still super-hip, and one of the freshest mainstream things to come from their scene! The mix of blues roots and psych influences here is wonderful – much rawer than in the group's later years, with a strong link in sonic intensity to the 60s Texas garage/psych scene – thanks to mindblowing work on guitar from the young Billy Gibbons! Titles include "Bar B Q", "Whiskey N Mama", "Francine", "Just Got Paid", "Ko Ko Blue", "Chevrolet", "Mushmouth Shoutin", and "Sure Got Cold After The Rain Fell". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ ZZ TopTres Hombres ... LP
London, 1973. Very Good- Gatefold ... $8.99
An early breakthrough for ZZ Top – a raucous hard electric blues rock classic that was popular at the time, if not critically beloved – finally getting its deserved respect nowadays for timeless grit and groove! The opening couple of classics "Waitin' For The Bus" and "Jesus Just Left Chicago" flow one to the other seamlessly and set the mood perfectly, and it's pretty much one great tune after another from there, including "Beer Drinkers & Hell Raisers", "Master Of Sparks", "Hot, Blue And Righteous", "Move Me On Down The Line", "Precious And Grace", the almighty, never to diminish "La Grange", "Sheik" and "Have You Heard".

ZZ TopZZ Top's First Album (180 gram pressing) ... LP
London/Warner, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
The fantastic first album from ZZ Top – already a heady mix of Texas blues and psych roots, served up into a style that's completely the group's own – but which hasn't yet been watered down by commercial cliches and MTV! The sound here really puts these guys much more in the company of the fantastic Texas garage psych scene of the late 60s – with a really strong focus on the amazing guitar of Billy Gibbons, and the way he can compact down so many elements into one very unique tone – but without ever having to show off as a blues rocker either. The blend is perfect, the edge is razor sharp, and even if these guys never had any later hits, the record would have been an underground gem! Titles include "Neighbor Neighbor", "Shaking Your Tree", "Brown Sugar", "Squank", "Going Down To Mexico", "Backdoor Love Affair", and "Just Got Back From Baby's". LP, Vinyl record album

BreakawayStraight On To The Top ... LP
Breakaway/BBE (UK), 1979. Sealed (reissue)... $13.99
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 ... CD
King/Verve, 1970. Used ... $4.99
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)". CD features the previously unissued bonus track "There Was A Time" – plus the full, unedited versions of 4 other tracks – appearing here for the first time ever! CD

✨✧ Keni BurkeRisin’ To The Top/Hang Tight ... 7-inch
RCA/Expansion (UK), 1982. New Copy ... $9.99
A massive jam from Keni Burke – easily his greatest tune ever, and the kind of track we'd hardly have imagined back when he was a little tyke in the Five Stairsteps! The track's got a thumping, stomping kind of groove that really gets going from the start – and the vocal hook is a wonderful one – instantly recognizable, thanks to a strong sample history! "Hang Tight" is less familiar, but an equally funky number – with the bassline stepping up and down in this really great way – alongside sweet keyboards and vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Hugh MasekelaEmancipation Of Hugh Masekela (top hat cover) ... LP
Uni, Late 60s. Very Good ... $7.99
Hugh's first album for Uni – and one that really lets him open up his groove! The record moves way past the short trumpet instrumental sound of earlier albums – into a complex groove that mixes Afro soul, LA funk, and loads of nice jazzy bits! The record's got a sound that's nicely messed up – and which shows the crossroads of modern music that passed through Hugh during his best moments. Includes a great version of "What Is Wrong With Groovin?" (different than the Letta Mbulu version!), plus "Sqo", "Child Of Earth", "Ha Lese Le Di Khanna", "Chisa", and "Why Are You Blowing My Mind?". Great stuff! LP, Vinyl record album

Prince Phillip MitchellTop Of The Line ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Very Good+ ... $14.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Raymond Scott & The Secret 7Unexpected ... CD
Top Rank/Basta, 1960. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A great musical mystery – and one of Raymond Scott's jazziest albums of the 50s! The group on the session is Scott's "Secret 7" – a batch of unnamed jazz musicians, most likely playing here out of contract with other labels, hence the secret nature of their work on the album! In keeping with the nature of the original album, the players also aren't listed here – save for one undeniable talent, the mighty Toots Thielemans, who contributes some great sounds to the combo grooving on the set. The format is kind of a mixture of Scott's wilder arrangements from previous years, with some of the small chamber jazz work that was coming out of the east coast at the time – and although the record was originally issued on Top Rank, it's got a feel that's very much in keeping with much of the RCA sessions of the time. There's a few nice sound effects and studio tricks, but overall the real strength of the set comes from the instrumentation used – including Thelemans' harmonica, plus vibes, flute, and other more standard jazz instrumentation. Titles include "Waltz Of The Diddles", "Temptation", "In The Beginning", "A Message From Where", and "Quiet Entrance". CD

Top Dawg Ent., 2017. New Copy ... $9.99
A stunning debut from SZA – a soul singer who seems to represent a whole new way of being – with a style that's at once very understated and completely compelling! SZA's clearly got a hell of a voice – but she's also content to weave it into the rich mix of beats, keyboards, and guitar lines that make up the music – all familiar elements, but used in this gently melodic way that's immediately arresting, and much more contemporary in spirit than most of her contemporaries! The approach is hard to describe in words, but if you've heard even a minute of SZA's music, you'll know what we mean – and to our ears, the lady might well be the future of mainstream soul, while still keeping ties to the underground. Titles include "Supermodel", "The Weekend", "Doves In The Wind", "Love Galore", "Broken Clocks", "Pretty Little Birds", and "20 Something". CD

Top Tape (Brazil), 1971. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A very cool Brazilian rock group from the early 70s – one who step out here with some touches that almost remind us more of French rock from the time than the usual MPB – and some groovy psychedelic modes as well! Arrangements can be full – a mix of strings interlaced with tighter group work on guitar, organ, bass, and drums – and this approach brings an especially nice quality when female singer Cristina is in the lead – giving the tunes the baroque finish that makes her feel like some lost chanteuse. Male singer Antonio Claudio also sings on the record – sometimes solo, sometimes in cool duets with Cristina – and titles include "You", "Seu Lobo", "Miragem", "Santa Teresa", "Doroteia", "Carro Branco", and "Pasta Dental Sabor Chicletes". CD also features four bonus tracks – including "Let Me Sing", "Eu Sou Eu Nicuri E O Diabo", "O Pente", and "Na Sombra Da Amendoeira". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousJoy/Select Story 1958 to 1965 ... CD
President (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wealth of great pop, rock, soul, and novelty numbers from the end of the 50s and the start of the 60s – unusual little tunes recorded for the Joy and Select record labels, most of which we've never heard before! There's a rich sense of discovery in this collection – not just because the music is unfamiliar, but also because the way it's put together is so darn great – kind of like finding an unusual specialty show at the left end of the dial in the middle of the night – the sort that always turns you onto new records you'd never hear otherwise! Our favorite numbers here are probably the novelty numbers – but there's also some great straighter tunes that lived in the shadows of the hits, and which offer up a slightly different spin on early 60s pop. Titles include "From The Top Of Your Guggle" by The Five Blobs, "Sock Hop" by The Gorman Sisters, "When I Fall In Love" by Mindy Carson, "Robot Man" by Jamie Horton, "Bossa Nova Stomp" by The Fabulous Dials, "Slow Dance" by Karol Kelly, "S All Right S All Right" by Senor Wences, "Hootenanny" by The Glencoves, "The Soul Of My Man" by Pat Jarvis, and "When The Wind Changes" by Freddie Scott. 26 tracks in all!

✨✧ VariousOne-Der-Ful Collection – M-Pac Records ... CD
One Der Ful/Secret Stash, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning collection of rare Chicago soul – pulled from the M-Pac label, which was part of the One-Derful family of records – and packed with vintage singles and 10 previously unreleased tracks too! This series is fantastic – the first really deep look at the Chicago underground genius of Ernie Leaner – producer, distributor, studio owner, and all-around non-stop force in Windy City soul during the 60s – as you'll hear from the gems on this set! The work here languished slightly in the shadows of bigger labels – like Okeh, Brunswick, and Chess – but the quality is all top-shelf, with an especially great run of male singers, both as solo acts and as groups. And like other volumes in the series, the notes and historical details are great – almost worth the price of admission alone, as they really illuminate this lost slice of Chicago soul – and point out that there's lots more greatness to discover, when you move past Curtis Mayfield, Tyrone Davis, and Jerry Butler. Titles include "All Of My Life" by The Ringleaders, "New Girl" by The Accents, "Angel" by Benny Turner, "So Glad" by Willie Parker, "Damper Down" by Bobby Davis, "Bad Situation" by Harold Burrage, "Change Of Heart" by Andrew Tibbs, "Never In A Million Years" by Willie Parker, "Don't Try To Fool Me" by Stacy Johnson, "Lonely Man" by Big Daddy Simpson, "Hey Mister" by Dorothy Prince, "The Earth Worm (part 1)" by Maurice Dollison & The Turnkeys, and "Let's Start Over" by The Ringleaders.

Akoya Afrobeat EnsembleIntroducing The Akoya Afrobeat Ensemble ... CD
Afrobomb, 2004. Used ... $3.99
Afro Funk from the New York scene – served up by a combo who've taken Fela's inspiration to great new levels! The sound here definitely has roots in the grooves first grown in the 70s – heavy percussion, hard-rolling rhythms, and a brace of horns soaring over the top – tight on the head arrangements, but free to step out in jazzier moments in the longer space of the tracks! But Akoya also have a sound that's far more than just a copycat of the classic years – and they bring a sophisticated, contemporary groove to their music – one that's still mostly live and organic, but which also has a great sense of space and timing too. Vocal numbers include the political tracks "USA (Unilateral System Of Attack)" and "Star Wars" – and other titles include "Pelotera", "Mutiny", and "Akoya Chant". CD

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", and remixes of "Asiko" and "Black Voices". CD

Trumpety magic from Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – a record that's known not only for its classic cover of a model dipped in whipped cream, but also for it's tremendously groovy groove! 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". LP, Vinyl record album

A well-titled album, given that the overall feel here is maybe a bit more stripped-down and almost rootsy at times – even though the trio's still working with producer George Martin! The set was recorded in just a week at Caribou Ranch – and it's almost a return to the core harmonies and acoustic elements of the group's roots – cast out here with perfect compressed sound, yet also hitting harder with a few more punched-up moments at times too. There's a nice "past the hits" quality to the set – and titles include "She's A Liar", "Letter", "Watership Down", "Amber Cascades", "Lovely Night", and "Who Loves You" – plus "Hideaway (parts 1 & 2)", which has this great mellow groove and piano from Martin that could easily be a hip hop sample!

Gene AmmonsJug (alternate cover) ... LP
Prestige, 1961. Very Good ... $11.99
A real turning point in the career of Gene Ammons – a record that almost returns Ammons to his earthier roots, and in the process helps build up a whole new sound in soul jazz for the 60s! The "Jug" nickname in the title is kind of a joking way to help Ammons stand alongside "Miles", "Trane", "Diz", and other one-name monikered stars in jazz – but even without that gimmick (which somehow lasted for years), the album's got a depth that more than gets Gene back on top, thanks to a gritty soulfulness and good sense of feeling in the grooves! Players here include Richard Wyands on piano on most numbers – plus a rare appearance by Clarence "Sleepy" Anderson on 2 numbers – one on organ, one on piano. Rhythm is by Doug Watkins on bass and JC Heard on drums – and Ray Barretto makes one of his great soul jazz appearances on drums – rolling the groove along with a nice bit of bounce throughout! Titles include "Tangerine", "Ol Man River", "Easy To Love", "Seed Shack", "Miss Lucy", and "Namely You". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the most widely-circulated albums from the second incarnation of Amon Duul – and one of the most striking as well! The set's got a bit more focus than some of their earlier efforts, but a sound that's still plenty darn trippy – with more carefully-constructed passages that bring in bits of strings and larger arrangements, but which still step aside for some colder, darker moments too. These guys maintain a complexity with their sound – so that if they go for a glammish moment one minute, they're soon breaking off into freakier territory the next – on titles that include "Liquid Whisper", "I Can't Wait (parts 1 & 2)", "Archy The Robot", "Lonely Woman", and "Explode Like A Star".

Ernie AndrewsTravelin Light ... LP
GNP, Mid 50s/1975. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Some of the earliest work we've ever seen from LA singer Ernie Andrews – much better known for his 60s sides, but sounding great here overall! Side one of the album's from a 1958 date arranged by Gerald Wiggins and featuring Eric Dolphy on alto sax – tunes done in a slightly bluesy mode that brings out the deepest side of Andrews vocals. Side two's from a few years before – 1956 – and features some slightly tighter arrangements from Benny Carter, but still a nice jazz base overall – and as with the first date, the group is filled with top-shelf players from the LA scene. Titles include "Song Of The Wanderer", "Bernie's Tune", "Slide Mr Trombone", "Travelin Light", "Lover Come Back To Me", and a unique vocal version of Teddy Edwards' "Sunset Eyes".

Apple & The Three OrangesFree & Easy – The Complete Works 1970 to 1975 ... CD
Now Again, Early 70s. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
A funky treasure trove from Apple & The Three Oranges – a group we hardly know at all, but who really blow us away with the cuts on this collection! The groove is plenty hard right from the get-go – the best of the funky 45 underground of the early 70s – which means that there's more 60s rawness on the record than you'd get from bigger-label funk at the time – as Ed "Apple" Nelson still works here with a mostly underground vibe! Ed plays drums – which are mighty hard on most numbers – and his vocals have this offbeat, off-kilter, over the top quality that almost reminds us a bit of the Hank Ballard/James Brown recordings for late 60s King – particularly in the way that Nelson's completely unbridled with his energy. The whole thing's great – one of the best funky collections we've heard in years – and presented with a rich amount of notes and historical information too. Titles include "Free & Easy (parts 1 & 2)", "Moon Light", "Curse Upon The World", "What Goes Around Comes Around", "Down Home Publicity", "True Love Will Never Die", "Gotta Stand For Something (parts 1 & 2)", and "I'll Give You A Ring". CD features a massive 52 page booklet, too! CD

ArchiesArchies Essentials ... CD
Essential, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99 19.99
Way more than just essentials from this famous bubblegum pop group – as the 2CD set features a whopping 44 tracks in all, which may well be most of the music the group ever recorded! All the sounds are supervised by the mighty Don Kirshner – who first cooked up the idea of getting a real rock band to sing behind a Saturday morning cartoon – to create the kind of instant gold that made The Archies a hit right from the start. But, like The Monkees in their early days, the strength of the music really lies in the creative support working with the group – such as producer Jeff Barry, who also wrote a lot of songs – and a range of top-shelf studio musicians, who ensure that the instrumentation and arrangements are great throughout. Titles include "Sugar & Spice", "Archie's Party", "Circle Of Blue", "Inside Out Upside Down", "Love Light", "Feelin So Good", "Truck Driver", "Whoopee Tie Ai A", "Bicycles Roller Skates & You", "Kissin", "Hot Dog", "Don't Need No Bad Girl", "Strangers In The Morning", "Seventeen Ain't Young", "Easy Guy", "Little Green Jacket", and "Sugar Sugar".

Louis ArmstrongSatchmo At Symphony Hall – The Complete Performances ... CD
Decca/Verve, 1947. Used 2CDs ... $24.99
A classic live date from Satchmo – and expanded to include the complete performances on that legendary night at Boston's Symphony Hall – for the first time ever! Recorded in November of 1947 and originally released in '51, it's never before been issued with both the first and second sets that night. There's also a number of great tunes here that were released before in edited versions, but fully presented here. It's such wonderful stuff – both as a top-shelf document of this period of American jazz – and as a brilliant example of Satcho's charming stage presence. His trumpet and solo vocals are well captured, and you can here up humming along on the instrumentals, too. The players at this point who are All Stars, indeed, include Jack Teagarden on vocals and trombone, Barney Bigard on clarinet, Dick Cary on piano, Arvell Shaw on bass, and Sid Catlett on drums – plus some great vocals by Velma Middleton. 29 songs on 2CDs – in a hardback package with a great booklet – and featuring "When It's Sleepy Time Down South", "Stars Fell On Alabama", "Body And Soul", "Steak Face", "Back O'Town Blues", "St James Infirmary", "Mop Mop", "Jack Armstrong Blues", "That's My Desire", "C Jam Blues", "Baby Won't You Please Come Home", "Mahogany Hall Stomp" and more – many previously unreleased!

ArtisticsI'm Gonna Miss You ... LP
Brunswick, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A really breakout moment for The Artistics – and the start of a really sublime run with the great Brunswick Records! The group had already broken a bit on Okeh a few years before – securing a top spot on the Chicago scene with their bouncy northern soul groove – a love of rhythm that made them as much a favorite on dancefloors as they were with fans of harmony soul. But on this sweet set, things come together even better than before – thanks to strong leads by singer Marvin Smith, who brings a real sense of personality to the group's harmonies – and wonderful Brunswick studio help that includes Sonny Sanders arrangements and Carl Davis production. The whole thing's wonderful – and tracks include the hit "I'm Gonna Miss You", plus "On & On", "Sweeter Than Sugar", "Hope We Have", "Girl I Need You", "You're Wonderful", and "Love Song". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ashford & SimpsonSend It ... LP
Warner, 1977. Very Good ... $1.99
Excellent work from Ashford & Simpson – with some modern soul groovers that are among the best they ever did! The album includes their original reading of "Top Of The Stairs", a great sexy soul duet that was later done by Collins & Collins – and it's also got a fantastic instrumental reading of "Bourgie Bourgie", a track that you may know from a more famous John Davis disco version. Other tracks include "By Way Of Love's Express", "Let Love Use Me", "Send It", and "Waited Too Long". More proof that leaving Motown was a great move for them! LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some wear.)
