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

James BrownSoul On Top ... LP
King, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $16.99
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)".

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

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.

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

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

Alan Moore & Kevin O'NealLeague Of Extraordinary Gentlemen – Century 1969 ... Book
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

Alan Moore & Kevin O'NealLeague Of Extraordinary Gentlemen – Century 2009 ... 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.

PMG (Austria), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
A stunner from the Afro Funk scene of the 70s – and the kind of record that makes us realize just how much greatness there is to discover! Years back, we thought we'd heard all the good cuts from the sub-Saharan continent – but a record like this really makes us sit up and take new notice – grabbed by the core funky rhythms of the combo, which feel like some lost east coast funky 45 on the harder moments, and which get some cool production and keyboard touches on other tracks – all to perfectly underscore the group's amazingly catchy vocals! The organ lines burn right on top of the basslines, creating these waves of soul that grab us right away – and titles include "Funky Girl", "Feel Alone", "Orule", "Be Yourself", "I Don't Want No-Body", and "Laila".

Great early work from arranger Manny Album – Manny's entry in RCA's Jazz Workshop series – a set of tunes that are shorter, and arguably a bit more modern than some of his later work – tracks done definitely in that Jazz Workshop blend of west coast cool and east coast modern – with players that include Bob Brookmeyer, Nick Travis, Urbie Green, Billy Byers, Hal McKusick, Al Cohn, and Thad Jones. Titles include the Albam originals "Headstrong", "The Changing Scene", "The Turning Point", and "Intermezzo" – plus "Charmaine", "Royal Garden Blues", and "Anything Goes". LP, Vinyl record album

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 "Funji Mama", "Bolivia", "Body & Soul", "Close Enough", "SKJ", "Jamento", and "Little Darling". CD

Tony AllenBlack Voices ... LP
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1999. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

The set's maybe not as perfectly polished as Martin's work with America, but it's in a similar form – some down-to-earth cats who've got a real ear for the right side of songwriting, able to work in a studio setting without losing their individuality – coming together with just the right amount of warmth to augment their charms, but never in a way that's too commercial. Titles include "The Woman In Your Heart", "Queen Of All My Days", "Call Me Tell Me", "Light Of Your Love", "Back In 57", and "Lady Blue Eyes". CD

Prestige, Late 50s. Good+ ... $11.99
Way more than just an album with Gene Ammons as a leader – and instead, a set that truly earns the "all stars" listed on the cover – thanks to a great array of supporting players, and a very loose, open-ended jam session style that lets everyone get in plenty of solo space! Ammons' tenor is tremendous, but he's also a great collaborator here, too – working with Idrees Suliman on trumpet, Pepper Adams on baritone, Mal Waldron on piano, Art Taylor on drums, Doug Watkins on bass, and Ray Barretto on conga – in a mode that's maybe slightly tighter than some of the blowing sessions Prestige was doing at the time, but which still has that key longform creative energy that made the hardbop generation so great. Titles include "Blue Gene", "Scamperin", "Blue Greens n Beans", and "Hip Tip" – and all tracks are long, with plenty of focus on solos! LP, Vinyl record album

A beautiful little record from the Art Ensemble of Chicago – and although performed for a bigger label than some of their previous indie outings, the set may be one of the most dynamic the group ever recorded! Atlantic Records is clearly giving the group a lot of space here – as they're recording in Chicago, in a relatively free setting – able to stretch out and change things up with amazing energy – never just free jazz exploration, but a very rich, complicated, well-considered approach to their many layers of instrumentation and rhythm! Muhal Richard Abrams makes a great guest appearance on the record – adding in some wonderful piano passages – and the set includes the usual mix of reeds, percussion, and vocals – plus the beautiful bass work of Malachi Favors. Tracks include "Nonaah", "The Key", "Tnoona", and "Fanfare For The Warriors". LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, 1979. Sealed ... $2.99
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".

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

Albert AylerLast Album ... LP
Impulse, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $29.99
Ayler's last album ever – and an incredibly strange batch of tracks that shows perfectly the kind of stylistic and emotional struggle he was going through in the final years of his life. Like the albums New Grass and Love Cry, this one shows Ayler toying with influences from other genres – like rock and soul – in order to better communicate his message to the masses. And while there's some strange odd moments that don't really work, there's others that have a gutsiness that's stunning – especially from the otherwise serious (by this point) NY underground.

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".
