Two TonsBackatcha ... LP
Fantasy/Honey, 1980. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Although Marsha Wash and Izora Armstead later metamorphosed into the too-silly Weather Girls later in the 80s, at this point in their career, they were pretty decent singers – and were being produced by Harvey Fuqua in a great style that took bits of soul, bits of disco, and forged a modern club groove that worked very nicely for their strong vocal techniques. The best tracks are pretty darn catchy – and the record's a great soul album that shouldn't be passed up, even if you're scared of their Weather Girls reputation. Titles include "Never Like This", "I Depend On You", "Can't Do It By Myself", "I Been Down", and "Your Love Is Gonna See Me Through". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the lyric sleeve.)

✨✧ Oscar Brown JrHumdrum Blues/Sixteen Tons ... 7-inch
Popcorn (UK), Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Two wicked groovers from the great Oscar Brown Jr – tunes that have a vamping, jazzy style that's mighty nice – all served up with Oscar's unique vocal style! "Humdrum Blues" is anything but – with a great use of conga and bassline to kick the groove into gear – and the classic "Sixteen Tons" is redone in a similar rhythm – really re-energizing the wonderful song! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Weather GirlsBig Girls Don't Cry ... LP
Columbia, 1985. Near Mint- ... $1.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo stamp and a bumped corner.)

A far-reaching, unpretentious collection! Includes "Tubular Bells Pt 1" from L'Esorcista by Mike Olddield, "Amityville Horror Main Title" by Lalo Schifrin, "The Shining Main Theme" by Wendy Carlos and Rachel Elkind, "Inferno" by Keith Emerson, "Suspiria" by Goblin, "Pit And The Pendelum Main Theme" by Lex Baxter, "The Fog" by John Carpenter, "Alien End Titles" by Jerry Goldsmith, "Twin Peaks Theme" by Angelo Badalamenti and tons more!

VariousWest Indies Funk Vol 3 ... CD
Trans Air (Puerto Rico), Early 70s. New Copy ... $4.99 17.98
Plenty funky down in the West Indies – more than enough to keep this third volume as strong as the previous two! There's loads of wonderful bits here – from steel band funk to tropical-styled rhythms to heavy grooves that are hardly what you'd expect to be coming from the islands back in the 70s – a wonderful discovery in music that's got our ears plenty happy! We'd never be able to track down most of these tunes on our own – and we're grateful to the folks at Trans Air for coming up with so many sweet funky numbers in one power-packed compilation. Titles include "Sandy Beach" by Johnny Hackworth's Caribbean Sound, "Make It Funky" by Silvertons, "Midnight Man" by Earl Rodney, "Do Your Thing" by Trinidad & Tobago Steel All Stars, "Cissy Strut" by Trinidad Steel Drummers, "90 Percent Of Me Is You" by Amral's Trinidad Cavaliers, "Calypso Rock" by Original Tropicana Steel Band, "2001" by Life, and "The Devil's Out Tonight" by Carl McKnight's Sweat & Steel Drum Band.

✨✧ Eddie Lockjaw Davis & Johnny GriffinBlues Up & Down/Griff & Lock ... CD
Milestone/Jazzland, 1960/1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
During the early 60s, tenor giants Johnny Griffin and Eddie Lockjaw Davis teamed up to cut a series of monster LPs that are still defined today as some of the best examples ever of a twin tenor frontline! The records matched hardbop solo intensity with tight soul jazz grooving – and nobody was better equipped to handle such a combo as Griff and Lockjaw. Two of those great LPs are pulled together for this CD – Blues Up & Down and Griff & Lock, both originally issued for the Jazzland label, and darn hard to find. Rhythm is by either Junior Mance or Lloyd Mayers on piano, plus Larry Gales on bass and Ben Riley on drums. Titles include "Hey Lock!", "Midnight At Mintons", "Good Bait", "Oh, Gee", "Layin On Mellow", and "Leapin On Lenox". CD

✨✧ 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. LP, Vinyl record album
