✨✧ Only OnesWhy Don't You Kill Yourself? – The CBS Recordings ... CD
Demon (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2CD ... $13.99
Ragged 70s moddish pop and punk from South London's Only Ones – the under appreciated group's only three albums, collected on two CDs! The Only Ones sound like a less complicated Television, mixed with the ragged rock-and-roar of the New York Dolls. Peter Perritt's semi-detached, leisurely vocal delivery certainly remind us Tom Verlaine, and the band's loose ramshackle groove often rolls at a similar clip as Television's, minus the solos and Beats-inspired lyrics. Perritt's more of an unabashed romantic than most other punk era lyricists, and his occasional keyboards helped set the tone for the oncoming New Wave. These two CDs feature the complete Only Ones, Even Serpents Shine and Baby's Got A Gun albums – plus a number of previously unreleased bonus tracks. Tracks include "The Whole Of The Law", the AMAZING single "Another Girl, Another Planet", "Breaking Down", "City Of Fun", "The Beast", "Creature Of Doom", "From Here To Eternity", "Flaming Torch", "You've Got To Pay", "Someone Who Cares", "The Happy Pilgrim", "Why Don't You Kill Yourself", The Big Sleep", "Strange Mouth" and tons more!

Ray & His Musical CourtCookie Crumbs – The Greatest Hits ... CD
Essential, Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 16.98
Some of the tightest funky 70s jamming ever from Ray & His Musical Court, a group that perfectly fuses JB/Horny Horns funk with beat-heavy Afro-Cuban groove! Ray & co. are one of the more obscure funky combos of the era, and it's a damn shame, because the group's tight-as-can-be amalgam of JB's style horn riffing and thumping Afro-Cuban percussion is some of the absolute best of its kind. This group seriously smokes any of the current funk bands on the road! Multi-instrumentalist Ray Fernandez got his start largely as a percussionist, and worked with titans like Mongo Santamaria and Bud Powell before fronting his own group. On these sessions Ray wrote, produced, played "organ flute" and provided some vocals in a large group that includes three trumpets, bass clarinet, sax, two drummers, congas, electric bass, and a line of mostly Spanish vocalists. Amazing 70s super funk with a very proud Latin edge! 22 tracks running well north of the hour mark: "Cookie Crumbs", "Soul Freedom", "El Alacarn", "El Bimbo", "Brazil", "Sunny", "Tu Mirar", "Chega Mais, "More More More", and tons more!

Weather GirlsBig Girls Don't Cry (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1985. New Copy ... $5.99
Soaring vocals from The Weather Girls, set to bouncy grooves that are equal parts soul and pop! Martha Wash and Izora Armstead have mighty vocal chops throughout – that bold duo approach they first crafted as Two Tons O Fun, and pushed even more strongly as The Weather Girls – set here to keyboard-heavy backings from Leon Pendarvis, who knows just where to put the best hooks in the grooves! Titles include "Well A Wiggy", "Lock Me Up", "No One Can Love You More Than Me", "Big Girls Don't Cry", "You Can Do It", "Laughter In The Rain", and "March". CD features bonus tracks – "Well A Wiggy (12" ext)" and "No One Can Love You More Than Me (12" ext)". CD

VariousButtons – Starter Kit (aka Yellow Pills) ... LP
Numero, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $18.99 22.98
A reimagined version of the legendary Yellow Pills compilation on Numero – 20 songs from the original compilation, plus two bonus tracks, new liner notes, and lots of cool sleeve scans, photos, and more! Forget everything you know about rock music in the late 70s – all the punk rock and new wave that's been immortalized over the years – and get ready to discover a whole new world of power pop! At the time, the power pop underground was as important to some ears as the artier and angrier work coming out of the east coast and UK – and the power pop world was one that could co-exist a bit more peacefully with mainstream rock, while still offering a great opportunity for bands on various local scenes. The work here has echoes of more famous acts of the time – like The Cars, The Kings, or The Knack – but it's also got a bit more of a home-grown, punk rock edge – one that comes through beautifully in the guitar parts, vocals, and unabashed hooks of the tunes. The set's a follow-up to the original Yellow Pills set by zine publisher Jordan Oakes – and it delves deeper than even that one, with a real focus on work from the end of the 70s, and acts that never had great chart success overall. Titles include "High School" by Tommy Rock, "She's Hi Fi" by The Trend, "There Goes My Heart Again" by The Kids, "Not My Girl Anymore" by The Bats, "All I Want" by The Colors, "Domestic/Imported" by The Toms, "Sunshine USA" by Randy Winburn, "One In A Million" by Luxury, "She's The Girl" by The Tweeds, "Rave It Up" by Colors, and "Hey Little Girl" by The Kids.

✨✧ VariousSoul Safari Presents Township Jive & Kwela Jazz Vol 3 ... LP
Ubuntu (Netherlands), Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily 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. LP, Vinyl record album
