✨✧ Carl PerkinsWhole Lotta Shakin/King Of Rock/Greatest Hits/On Top ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1959/Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
You might know Carl Perkins mostly as an artist who recorded for Sun Records during the label's glory days of the 50s – but the singer also moved onto Columbia Records, where he cut some stunningly great material that's collected in this set! The package begins with the album Whole Lotta Shakin – a set that takes off from the Sun Records style of Perkins, but also maybe brings in a few country touches, and some of that rawer Columbia rockabilly style that real aficionados know the label did so well. The following three records are all from the end of the 60s – and really show a great new side of the maturing singer – as he hits the kind of post-roots vibe that other aging rockabilly singers were moving towards at the time – like Gene Vincent or Jerry Lee Lewis, who arguably cut some of their most interesting material during the time. Like the latter, Perkins maybe brings in more country inflection to his sound – but also prefaces a whole generation of roots rockers who were emerging – and there's loads of interesting moments in these later recordings, including a tune co-written with Bob Dylan. 2CD set features 49 tracks in all – and titles include "Champaign Illinois", "Levi Jacket", "Loveville", "Sister Twister", "Too Much For A Man To Understand", "Pointed To Shoes", "Just For You", "Mean Woman Blues", "Riverboat Annie", "Lion In The Jungle", "Superfool", "Soul Beat", and "Power Of My Soul".

AkimboOn Top ... CD
Acid Jazz (UK), 1998. Used ... $2.99
Akimbo may not be a household name, but the group's members have played with Brand New Heavies, Soul II Soul, and Jamiroquai – and they've got a sound that more than lives up to that heritage! In a way, the groove here really takes us back to the best styles of the early days of Acid Jazz – as Akimbo craft a clear, clean 70s jazz funk groove – one that's not cluttered up with house, hip hop, or drum and bass – and which has a strongest focus on the funky instrumentation of the combo. There's a warm, well-produced sound to the set – one that ties into a 70s Fantasy Records style in the same way that the Brand New Heavies first tapped – and although most cuts are instrumental, a few numbers feature vocals by Marcina Arnold. Titles include "Akimbo", "For Real", "Call To Freedom", "The Reason", "Tickled", "Flight To Havana", and "On Top". CD

Gene AmmonsRed Top (aka Golden Saxophone Of Gene Ammons) ... CD
Savoy/Denon, Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... $5.99
A nice collection of Gene Ammons' work that doesn't always get as well remembered as his sides for Prestige or Chess – late 40s bop recordings for Savoy, done in a wonderfully full-voiced tone! The set features Gene's classic "Red Top", plus the great two part "Big Slam", and the titles "Chips", "Goodtime Blues", "Fuzzy", "Jim Dawgs", and "Street Of Dreams". The album doesn't list personnel at all for the tracks, or dates – but the music speaks volumes on its own! CD

BreakawayStraight On To The Top (with bonus CD) ... LP
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
(Includes bonus CD of the album!)

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 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 3 CDs ... $24.99
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! CD

✨✧ Bill EvansLive At Art D'Lugoff's Top Of The Gate ... CD
Resonance, 1968. Used 2CD ... $14.99
A real treasure – previously unreleased live material from the late, great Bill Evans – featuring wonderful late 60s work from his trio that included Eddie Gomez on bass and Marty Morrell on drums! The recording quality is great, and the playing is equally top-shelf too – a perfect illustration of the trio's genius, with a strong focus on the way that Gomez's basslines really help to shape the flowing grooves of the tunes! Evans is wonderful, too – still some echoes of that earlier 60s bite at times, yet also lots of those open, lyrical modes that really flowered in the later part of the decade – as you'll hear on a set that includes "Emily", "Yesterdays", "Witchcraft", "Round Midnight", "Autumn Leaves", "Someday My Prince Will Come", "Mother Of Earl", "Turn Out The Stars", and "Here's That Rainy Day".

A Japanese album that reissues the full sessions for Flanagan's famous Overseas album, recorded and released in Sweden by Metronome, and issued briefly in the US under the title Overseas. Tommy Flanagan is in perfect form in this stellar session of trio recordings, playing with Elvin Jones on drums and Wilbur Little on bass, in a mode that's both lyrical and boppish. Titles include "Skal Brothers", "Verdandi", "Dalarna", "Little Rock", "Eclypso", and "Beat's Up". LP, Vinyl record album

FusionTop Soul ... CD
Alba/Lion, 1975. Used ... $9.99
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".

✨✧ Lou JohnsonReach Out For Me/Magic Potion ... 7-inch
Big Top, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early brilliance from Burt Bacharach – 2 early soul productions for singer Lou Johnson! Lou's version of "Reach Out For Me" may be the best we've ever heard – rough-edged vocals set against some sweeter Bacharach arrangements that include stepping strings and chorus vocals – all with a quality that matches some of the best bigger name work on Atlantic at the time! "Magic Potion" is even better – a lesser-known track that steps along with percolated arrangements in an early Northern groove – alongside more of those great backing vocals! A real gem through and through. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Debby MooreMy Kind Of Blues ... LP
Top Rank, 1959. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

Afro Blues Quintet Plus OneIntroducing The Afro Blues Quintet Plus One ... LP
Mira, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $9.99
Excellent work from this totally sweet west coast Latin combo – a wonderful group who mixed Latin percussion with piano and vibes – in a manner that's similar to some of Cal Tjader's best Verve work of the 60s! Some tracks also make nice use of flute or alto sax – creating a snakey feel that really adds a new dimension of light and color to the tunes. The whole set's a great blend of Latin rhythms, jazzy solo work, and some mod 60s touches – and titles include "Monkey Time", "Afro Rock", "Let My People Go", "Walk On By", "Moses", "Liberation", and "Together". LP, Vinyl record album

Latiny club grooves from the Afro-Cuban Band – produced with some nice electric touches on keyboards! "Black Widow Woman" has a hard-stepping sort of groove – one that's got a strutting sort of feel – and "Delicado" is a bit jazzier, with some nice Latin trumpet over the top of the rhythms. Both tracks presented in a special disco mix too. 12-inch, Vinyl record

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

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

Gene AmmonsJammin With Gene – Hi Fi Jam Session ... LP
Prestige, Mid 50s. Good+ ... $34.99
Ahhhh . . . The Jam Session years of Gene Ammons! This album was one of a number that Jug cut for Prestige during the mid 50s, all excellent examples of how perfectly the label's "blowing session" style could work when it wanted to. The set takes Ammons' tenor, and groups it with an all-star cast that includes Art Farmer and Donald Byrd on trumpets, Jackie McLean on alto, Mal Waldron on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. All the horn players are given free reign to solo – and as most of the tracks go on and on and on, they really get room to open up, blowing with the kind of competitive creativity you'd hear in a live set at the same time. Includes three long tracks: "Not Really The Blues", "Jammin With Gene", and "We'll Be Together Again". LP, Vinyl record album

Gene AmmonsJug ... LP
Prestige, 1961. Very Good ... $9.99
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

Side one is the "rock side", and has Ann doing some especially nice numbers in this mode – never too over the top and with electric bass setting a nice tone for the tunes. Dick Pierce also handles some arrangements on the set too – a bit more in the usual Ann-Margret mode, but still never too over the top. Titles include "Oh Lonesome Me", "Slowly", "What Do You Want From Me", "I Just Don't Understand", "His Ring", and "Could It Be". 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".

Joan ArmatradingLove & Affection – The Essential Joan Armatrading (3CD set) ... CD
A&M/Universal (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $12.99
A collection that gets at the full range of talents from Joan Armatrading during her famous years at A&M Records – a time when she took an older folk soul aesthetic, and gave it a whole new spin – with a voice that was one of the most distinct in pop at the time, and a style that Armatrading made completely her own! Acoustic guitar figures as strongly as the voice in many of these tracks – and the work has a balance that made Joan a big hit with both rock and soul audiences at the time – thanks to incredible songwriting that was as personal as it was pointed. 3CD package features a whopping 61 tracks in all – and titles include "Down To Zero", "Love & Affection", "Barefoot & Pregnant", "Simon", "Help Yourself", "Bottom To The Top", "Square The Circle", "Join The Boys", "How Cruel", "Water With The Wine", "Warm Love", "Wrapped ARound Her", "The Key", "Cool Blue Stole My Heart", "The Shouting Stage", "Tall In The Saddle", "Foolish Pride", "Drop The Pilot", and "Can't Get Over How I Broke Your Heart".

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

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

Harry Arnold, Tony Scott, & Quincy JonesBig Band In Concert 1957 to 1958 ... CD
Dragon (Sweden), 1957/1958. Used ... $5.99
One of the greatest pairings of American and Swedish players of the 50s happened under the guidance of bandleader Harry Arnold – the top Swedish jazz orchestra leader of the time, and an artist who also managed to get a few American releases at the time! The tracks on this set are pulled from 3 different live recordings in the years 1957 and 1958 – the last half of which are especially noteworthy, as they feature Arnold working with a young Quincy Jones, who'd also brought the great trumpeter Benny Bailey into the sessions. Other tracks on the set showcase the clarinet talents of Tony Scott – who also arranged a fair number of tunes – and who plays here alongside Swedish soloists that include Arne Domnerus, Bengt Hallberg, and Sixten Eriksson. Alice Babs sings on one track on the CD – and the package features 17 titles that include "Meet Benny Bailey", "Six-Ten", "Stand By", "The Moon Walks", "Frantic Blues", "Kinda Blues", "Have You Met Quincy Jones", and "Room 608".

ArtisticsI'm Gonna Miss You ... LP
Brunswick, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99
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".

Ashford & SimpsonStay Free ... LP
Warner, 1979. Very Good+ ... $0.99
Great stuff! From Motown songwriters to world-class superstars, the trip was a well-deserved one for Valerie Simpson and Nick Ashford – and this album's perhaps their crowning achievement in sophisticated club soul! The record's got a great groove that offers a more soulful version of disco than most of the competing albums on major labels at the time – a perfect summation of the care and craft that Ashford & Simpson had always put into their music right from the start! The pair handle all production on the record, and also contributed all the songs too – and the whole thing's so wonderfully tight, right, and on the money, the album soars to the top even before the vocals come into the mix. Titles include more than a few club classics, like "Found A Cure", "Stay Free", and "Nobody Knows" – plus the cuts "Dance Forever", "Crazy", "Follow Your Heart", and "Finally Got To Me".
