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)... $8.99
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

SylvesterStep II ... LP
Fantasy, 1978. Very Good+ ... $5.99
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. Cover has light wear.)

VariousWhere The Action Is – Los Angeles Nuggets 1965 to 1968 (4CD set) ... CD
Rhino, Late 60s. Used 4CDs ... $33.99
A treasure trove of Nuggets from the LA Scene – fantastic material from a far reaching line up of gritty garage rockers, sunshine pop tunesmiths, psychedelic groovers, trippy psyche folk and much more – masterfully collected on 4 discs by the box set geniuses at Rhino! With such a diverse catalog to mine, the CDs are divided surprisingly well, and like other Nuggets comps, it's a great way to intro a ton of obscurities, while still including bigger hits that deserve to be remembered. Packaged in a beautiful 48 page book with essays, artist commentaries, tons of great photos, and even a 60s LA club guide! Disc one On The Strip includes: "Riot On The Sunset Strip" by The Standells, "Gentle As It May Seem" by Iron Butterfly, "Take A Giant Step" by The Guilloteens, "Tripmaker" by The Seeds, "Girl In Your Eye" by Sprit, "Eventually" by Peanut Butter Conspiracy and many more.

Disc four New Directions has 3 previously unreleased tracks: "Sit Down I Think I Love You" by Stephen Stills & Richie Furay, "Words" (demo) by Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart, and "Once Upon A Time" by Tim Buckley; plus "November Night" by Peter Fonda, "Marshmallow Skies" by Rick Nelson.

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 ... $22.99
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.

✨✧ Strange FantasyStrange Fantasy Collected Works Vol 2 – Isues 8 to 14 – October 1953 to October 1954 (hardbound) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), 1953/1954. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Weird and wonderful comics from the pre-code years of the early 50s – the kind of ultra-creepy comics that went onto inspire generations of artists, musicians, and filmmakers – before the government got into the action and shut the whole thing down! Strange Fantasy wasn't the biggest of the horror comic scene, but it's certainly got plenty to offer here in this lavish, full-color volume – one that presents a number of ultra-rare issues, along with all the vintage ads, text pieces, and gruesome cover art too! Ghouls, witches, and skeletons abound – and artwork is mostly from the shop of Jerry Iger, with work by Robert Webb, Steve Ditko, Sal Trapani, and others. The book presents seven full issues – all at a price that's far lower than an original copy of just one of them! Book
