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

✨✧ 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

CD Plastic Sleeves20 Polyclear Japanese Open Top Plastic Sleeves – Multi-Disc CD ... Record Care
Nagaoka (Japan), New Item ... $2.99
A cool open-top plastic sleeve for storing your CDs! This one works like the LP and 45 sleeves we stock – in that the plastic hugs your CD package on the front and back, and on the sides and bottom – but the top is open, so you can slide out the jewel case for easy access when listening! 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

Choice FourOn Top Of Clear (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1976. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
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".

Motown, 1966. Very Good+ ... $6.99
The Four Tops are definitely on top with this sweet early set – a record that not only shows them sparkling away from some of their big singles of the time, but also handling some other wonderful material in their sublime soul group style! The set includes some lesser-known Motown tracks, like "There's No Love Left", "I Got A Feeling", "Shake Me, Wake Me", "Until You Love Someone", and the hit "Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever" – all mixed with some more standard tunes from the time, but all given a special Motown mix of soul and class, on tracks that include "Matchmaker", "Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars", and Toots Thielemans' great jazzy number "Bluesette".

Robert KnightLove On A Mountain Top/Everlasting Love ... 7-inch

"Love On A Mountain Top" is a fantastic tune from Robert Knight – a bit less-known than his hit, but with a soaring, joyous quality that's mighty nice! The tune has upbeat drums and strings that echo a 60s Northern Soul mode – but are served up with a slightly different 70s inflection! "Everlasting Love" is Knight's lasting classic – a cut that most folks think is a Motown track, given its sense of perfect production and undeniable hook! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Idris MuhammadBoogie To The Top ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
Classic middle period work from drummer Idris Muhammad – a set recorded after his initial run of lean funk recordings for the jazz scene – with a bit more soul in the mix, and definitely a bit of boogie in the groove! Arrangements are by David Matthews – the maestro of the soul-styled charts who first honed his craft with James Brown – and the approach here is tight jazz funk, with both a good ear for the clubs, and some of the more sophisticated styles that the CTI/Kudu crowd could appreciate! There's some vocals at times – sung by Frank Floyd, Ray Simpson, and others – but the instrumental component of the album definitely takes the lead - with percussion by Nicky Marrero alongside Muhammad's tight drums – plus Hiram Bullock on guitar, Cliff Carter on keyboards, David Friedman on vibes, and solos from Ray Davis on alto and Jeremy Steig on flute. Titles include "One With A Star", "Boogie To The Top", "Bread", and "Stick It In Your Face". CD

Pete RugoloTV's Top Themes ... LP
Mercury, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A surprisingly great set of tracks from one of our favorite arrangers of all time! Pete Rugolo is best known to the world for his work with Stan Kenton, June Christy, and the Four Freshmen – but this album of TV themes is pretty darn fab, and it includes a lot of strange bits that push it past the regular TV kind of album. The personnel isn't listed, but the sound is plenty groovy – very much in keeping with Rugolo's best upbeat work from the post-Capitol years. Titles include "Theme From Dick Van Dyke", "Route 66", "General Electric Theatre Logo", "Nervous", "Naked City", "Ichabod & Me", and "My Three Sons". LP, Vinyl record album

Os LobosMiragem ... LP
Top Tape (Brazil), 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
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

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 ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Tumbleweed/Light In The Attic, Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really special sounds from a short-lived label – Tumbleweed Records, a company that was conceived in LA, and born in early 70s Denver – perfectly suited to focus on the hipper strands of singer/songwriter material of the time! The vibe here is a bit like the best work on the early Asylum Records, with maybe more of the diversity of Blue Thumb – and, like both of those special imprints, there's an above-the-usual level of quality going on here – great songwriting, understated production, and artists who really feel free to do their thing in the best way possible! Many of the tracks have kind of a homespun vibe, but top-shelf presentation – tight, but never slick – and the occasional twang really brings the right sort of humanity from time to time. Titles include "Turn Of The Century" and "Abyss" by Robb Kunkel, "Colorado" and "Hick" by Danny Holien, "Rosewood Bitters" by Michael Stanley, "Sweet As Spring" and "Do On My Feet" by Dewey Terry, "Late Letter" by Pete McCabe, "Plain Talk" by Arthur Gee, and "Sunday Sherry" by Arthur Gee Whizz Band.

Buda (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Zanzibar dance grooves from the nation-building Ujamaa years of the late 60s – all done in a style that's somewhat different and a bit more laidback than work from neighboring scenes at the time! Most of the numbers here build up a base with percussion, bass, and a handful of guitars – all rumbling together in a gently earthy sort of way – never too harsh or too sharp, and often with the guitars ringing alongside each other nicely, as one player steps out with an occasionally more pronounced line. Lyrics also show a strong sense of teamwork – mostly sung by the group together at once, creating more melodic force on top of the rhythms on the bottom. As always with this series, the CD comes with a great set of notes that includes a history of the scene and the artists – and the package features 17 tracks that include "Nipeleke Kwa Baba", "Dada Nihurumie", "Maneno Niliyokwambia", and "Mpenzi Nakukanya" by Nuta jazz Band; "Kaka Umenishinda", "Mpenzi Ya Kijinga", and "Salamu Zako Nimezipata" by Atomic Jazz Band; "Likembe Ya Moro" and "Nimechoka" by Morogoro Jazz Band; and "Usiwaamini Shemeji" and "Shangazi Naomba Taiti" by Jamhuri Jazz Band.

The mighty Errol Brown is at the controls in Treasure Isle – reworking some wicked rhythms played by The Revolutionaries – all with the stripped-down vibe of the best underground dub from Kingston in the 70s! Echo is heavy on the bottom-end of the sound – which makes the grooves ebb and flow in a way that's got a heck of a lot of sonic power – while some of the more isolated instruments over the top step along in a more melodic way – sometimes a bit of organ, guitar, or bubbling bass, depending on the track! The presentation is as stripped-down as the music – but at that mysterious level that only makes the record such a cool little treasure – with tracks that include "Bond Street Rock", "Ranking Marshal", "The Gun Court Dub", "Ital Stew", "Super Tracks", "Dread At The Controls", and "Ghetto Dub".

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

Lorez AlexandriaBand Swings Lorez Sings ... LP
King, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $24.99
Early greatness from Lorez Alexandria – and proof that she was a singer who could handle a tune like nobody else! At one level, the set appears to be a simple batch of standards, given a slight jazz twist – but as usual for the great one, Lorez manages to inflect each and every note with her own approach – stretching things, turning them, and pushing the whole album into a space that's far and away quite different than the usual staid vocal set it might appear to be. There's a heck of a lot of soul here – not just on the vocals, but also in the swinging jazzy backdrops – which are, unfortunately, uncredited. Titles include "Don't Blame Me", "You're My Thrill", "Love Is Just Around The Corner", "Just You Just Me", "Thrill Is Gone", and "All The Things You Are". LP, Vinyl record album

Comet (France), 1999. Used ... $9.99
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

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
(Out of print original pressing.)

Ernie AndrewsTravelin Light ... LP
GNP, Mid 50s/1975. Very Good+ ... $4.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Apollo Brown & Guilty SimpsonDice Game ... LP
Mello Music Group, 2012. Near Mint- 2LP ... $19.99
A tight duo outing from producer Apollo Brown and rhymer Guilty Simpson – and one of the stronger records either of those guys have been headlined! Dice Game didn't seem like much of a gamble, given -the top shelf, beat heavy funk and soul production aesthetic of Apollo Brown – and tough, no nonsense rhyme style of Guilty. It actually seemed like sure bet, and that's what it is! One of stronger indie hip hop releases of 2012 for sure! Includes "Reputation", "Let's Play", "One Man", "I Can Do No Wrong", "Potatoes" feat Torae, "Changes", "Dear Jane". "Lose You", "Truth Be Told", "The Cook Up", "Wrong Hand", "Ink Blotches", "Never Ending Story", "How Will I Go" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

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 ... $8.99
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".
