✨✧ SylvesterStep II ... LP
Fantasy, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Probably Sylvester's biggest album for Fantasy – and for good reason too! The set pushes onto the dancefloor a bit more than before – often with some slight keyboard touches that hint at the Patrick Cowley years, but with none of the coldness of those records at all. The great Harvey Fuqua's producing here with Syl, and the sound is rich and bold – an even more prideful statement than Sylvester's first album on Fantasy. Two Tons Of Fun deliver some great backup vocals, and Cowley lays down a bit of keyboards – and titles include the all-time disco classic "You Make Me Feel Mighty Real", plus "Dance (Disco Heat)", "Just You & Me Forever", "Grateful", and "I Took My Strength From You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

✨✧ Merle TravisMerle Travis Guitar ... CD
Capitol/Righteous (UK), 1950s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Impeccable guitar genius from the great Merle Travis – who was not only pivotal enough a figure to have an influential style of jazz-tinged country guitar named after him, but also a great songwriter – and this is one of the best early LPs to his name! The Merle Travis Guitar features solo guitar pieces by Merle that roll from meandering waltz patterns to blazingly fast country licks – comparable to some of the great, and now kind of overlooked Chet Atkins records of the 50s for the skill and tunefulness – but this is more of a stylistically focused set – Travis style! Titles include the Travis originals "Blue Smoke", "Saturday Night Shuffle", "Walkin The Strings" and "Rockabye Rag", plus "On A Bicycle Built For Two", "Bugle Call Rag" and more. This CD version includes 7 bonus tracks from earlier Travis 78s, some with vocals, including his masterpiece "Sixteen Tons" – plus "Sweet Temptations", "Blues Stay Away From Me", "Done Rovin" and more. 20 tracks in all.

✨✧ Stranger ColeBangarang – The Best Of Stranger Cole 1962-1972 ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
The first ever comprehensive collection of tracks by Stranger Cole – how could this be? The only bad thing you could say about this set, is the fact that it's long, LONG overdue! It features 54 of his greatest cuts on two CDs, cut during a period when it seemed like he must have been paying rent on the Jamaican charts, he was up on there so often! Includes many of his cuts with Patsy Todd and Gladstone Anderson, including "When You Call My Name", Yeah Yeah Baby", "Give Me The Right", and "Tell It To Me" (all with Todd) and "Just Like A River", "Seeing Is Knowing" Love Me this Evening", and "Pretty Cottage" (all with Gladstone), plus "Boy Blue", "Hush", "Make Believe", "When I Get my Freedom", "We Two", "My Confession" and tons of others! CD
(Out of print. Includes original slipcase.)

✨✧ VariousBeat From Badsville Vol 4 – Even More Trash Classics From Lux & Ivy's Vinyl Mountain (2 x 10 inch vinyl pressing) ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2 x 10 inch ... Out Of Stock
Two ultra-cool 10" records – both the size of a vintage 78, but each containing a dozen totally hip tracks from the late 50s and early 60s! The music here follows strongly in the great tradition of this excellent series – and like the rest, digs deep in the hinterland of the vintage vinyl single – to uncover some rare gems that run the gamut from early soul, to rock instrumentals, R&B, and lots of other recorded oddities! As you might guess from the Cramps-like title, there's a pretty upbeat, festive feel to the record – as raw sounds collide and provide a mighty great listen all the way through – from titles that include "Call My Name" by The Saints, "Begging" by Bo Toliver & His Timers, "Summertime" by Jamie Coe, "Midnight Express" by The Dawnbeats, "Tarantula" by The Storms, "Charge" by The Renegades, "Fling" by The Phaetons, "Stop The Clock Rock" by The Creel Sisters, "Shake Baby Shake" by Celestine, "I'm Scared Of The Horrors Of The Black Museum" by Nightmares Jimmie Maddin Orchestra, "Here Lies My Love" by Mr Undertaker, and "The Whipmaster" by Don Johnston.

✨✧ VariousSoul Safari Presents Township Jive & Kwela Jazz Vol 3 ... CD
Ubuntu (Netherlands), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Maybe our favorite volume so far in this excellent series – a set that focuses on early 60s work from South Africa, with a vibe that really showcases that great sound that would soon explode globally – as artists like Hugh Masekela and Miriam Makeba got wider exposure! Yet the music here is hardly as commercial as sounds from those two – as the overall production and presentation is nice and rootsy – lively rhythms topped with jazzy instrumentation and these especially wonderful vocals that dip, turn, soar, and fly – all at a level that would become cliche in the world music boom decades later, but which still sounds beautiful here at the roots. All tracks were hand-picked from the archives of the International Library Of African Music – and titles include "Nylon" and "Intogeymy" by The Lower Buttons, "Seven Stiches" and "Rock Phata 1001" by Kid Ma Wrong Wrong, "Lulu Part 4" by Bra Sello, "Mangothobane" and "Wamuhle Lomfana" by Flying Jazz Queens, "Kudala Ngizula" by Cowboy Superman & His Cowboy Sisters, and "Nice Time" by Que Sisters.
