A massive batch of righteous soul – plus sound bites and calls to action by some of the most pivotal voices of the era!

✨✧ VariousNight Train To Nashville – Music City Rhythm & Blues 1945 to 1970 ... CD
Lost Highway, Mid 40s/1950s/1960s/Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... $10.99
A pretty amazing batch of soul, R&B, and funk from the Nashville scene – from an astonishing range of years, too! Of course the memorabilia industry that is "Music City USA" is dominated by country music and pop, and this long, long, LONG overdue collection of singles from 1945-1970 demonstrates how much more was going on in East Tennessee beyond Chet Atkins and the Opry! The tunes range from jump blues & soul of the late 40s and 50s, and on through the harmony soul of the 60s and the pre-funk late 60s. 38 tracks on two CDs: "Nashville Jumps" by Cecil Gant, "Just Walkin' In The Rain" by The Prisonaires, "Baby Let's Play House" by Arthur Gunter, "Christene" by Little Hank Crawford, "You Can Make It If You Try" by Gene Allison, "Somebody, Somewhere" by Larry Birdsong, "Monkey Doin' Woman" by Shy Guy Douglas, "What'd I Say" by Etta James, "Snap Your Fingers" by Joe Henderson, "I Want To" by Joe Tex, "The Chokin'" Kind" by Joe Simon, "Rediscover Me" by Johnny Adams and tons more!

✨✧ Oscar Brown JrHumdrum Blues/Sixteen Tons ... 7-inch
Popcorn (UK), Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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. Used ... 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. Cover has initials in marker & a promo stamp.)

✨✧ Weather GirlsBig Girls Don't Cry (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1985. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Eddie Lockjaw Davis & Johnny GriffinFirst Set – Recorded Live At Mintons ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Near Mint- ... $11.99
During the early 60s, the team of Eddie Lockjaw Davis and Johnny Griffin was one of the most exciting unions in jazz. The two tenorists came from two different camps – Davis, the gutsy R&B soloist, Griffin, the hardbop powerhouse with a flair for the modern. Their pairing was an incredible stroke of genius and luck, and the albums they waxed – like this one – feature an approach hardly ever matched again by a two-tenor band. One of the best features of the group was their dedication to opening up the works of Monk into a freer blowing style – and they do so nicely on this album's two long takes of "Epistrophy" and "Well, You Needn't", both recorded live at the legendary Minton's Playhouse in Harlem (site of some of the band's best recordings.) Junior Mance heads up the soulful rhythm section that also includes Larry Gales and Ben Riley. LP, Vinyl record album

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
