God.Damn.ChanSlush ... Cassette
Alpha Pup, 2018. New Copy ... $7.99
Busted beats with a very bassy bottom – the kind of record that can really give your speakers a workout, while also delivering a surprisingly lyrical sort of vibe overall! God Damn Chen is very much a 21st Century talent – drawing on a range of earlier funky influences, but making something completely new and very much his own – as messed-up as it is mindful – crackling with a strong sense of urgency, but always sounding a bit personal as well! The blend is wonderful, and makes this instrumental set so different and so much more rewarding than the too-easy downtempo of the generation before – on titles that include "To My Friends", "Groovybby", "Smoke Break", "Supa Ugly", "Syrup Bath", and "Whatitdo".

Chi-Lites(For God's Sake) Give More Power To The People (with bonus track) ... CD
Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... About July 18, 2018
Seminal work from one of the 70s greatest groups! The band had always been great at love songs and uptempo numbers – but this record has them moving into more righteous area, picking up on some of the more socially conscious soul of their generation that had been working its way up the charts. The album features excellent production by Chi-Lite Eugene Record, who also wrote a lot of the material – plus arrangements by Tom Tom and Sonny Sanders. Great stuff all around, with the righteous social tunes "(For God's Sake) Give More Power to The People", "Trouble's A Comin", and "We Are Neighbors" – plus classic love songs "Have You Seen Her" and "Love Uprising", which are still kind of the band's strongest point. Loads more great stuff on this one, the album that helped the second wave of Chicago soul break out into the international market! CD features the bonus single version of "I Want To Pay You Back For Loving Me". CD

Domenico (Domenico Lancellotti)Good Is A Big God ... CD
Luaka Bop, 2018. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
You've heard Domenico before as part of the groundbreaking +2 trio with Kassin and Moreno Veloso – but this is only the second time the singer has worked on his own, and the first that he's given us his full name on the cover! That difference might mark a new sort of confidence in Domenico – a way of putting forth his careful songwriting genius with a bit more dexterity, which certainly gets a bit of assistance in the album's work by Sean O'Hagan and Kassin! If you've ever liked Domenico before, you'll totally love him here – and if this is your first time discovering his music, then get ready to go backwards – as the strength of this album will win over your ears, and send you searching for all the other wonderful music he's given us over the years. Titles include the very dreamy title cut "The Good Is A Big God" – plus "Insatiable", "Serra Dos Orgaos", "Voltar Se", "A Alma Do Vento", "Terra", "Logo", "Dama Da Noite", "Shanti Luz", "Arvores", and "pare De Correr".

Blind Willie JohnsonPraise God I'm Satisfied ... LP
Yazoo, Late 20s. Near Mint- ... $13.99
He may be blind, but he's plenty satisfied – and so are we, with this excellent package of rare 78rpm recordings from Willie Johnson! The sound quality is great – which is important, as Willie's got a style of guitar that's almost lighter in tone than some of his contemporaries – a deft thinness that really comes through well in this presentation of the music, really showing his skill on the strings. Vocals are surprisingly raw at points, making for a real contrast to the guitar – and titles include "I Know His Blood Can Make Me Whole", "Praise God I'm Satisfied", "Dark Was The Night Cold Was The Ground", "When The War Was On", and "Mother's Children Have A Hard Time".

Heungkook KimGod Of Reggae (10 inch colored vinyl EP) ... LP
Beatball (Korea), 1994. New Copy ... $15.99
Take the title here a bit ironically – as the music is this unusual Korean take on reggae rhythms – maybe more an inspiration from Kingston, filtered through a maturing K-Pop style of the time – although often with some of the qualities that came about when dubbier rhythms were influencing mainstream pop in the UK at the start of the 80s! Most instrumentation is electric, although the drums feel live – and lyrics are in Korean throughout – on titles that include "Reggae Party", "You Sting My Heart", "Today Is A Good Day", "Swallowtail", "Memories Don't Fade", and "Strange Feeling".

Sister Irene O'ConnorFire Of God's Love ... LP
Wyrd War, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
One of the strangest records you'll ever hope to own – a completely unusual vocal outing by two nuns from Australia – who are singing alongside spare accompaniment on organ, guitar, and piano! The whole thing's world's apart from the successful "nun" genre of the 60s – ala The Singing Nun – as this album feels weirdly spacey and kind of trippy – almost more in the vein of work by Miss Nelson and Bruce Haack than any sort of spiritual sounds! Some tunes are very spare and eerie – and almost feel like they were lifted from the soundtrack to an early David Lynch film – and titles include "Light", "Message Du Saint Esprit", "Nature Is A Song", "Fire", "Mary Was There", and "Teenager's Chorus".

Terrence ParkerGod Loves Detroit ... CD
Planet E, 2017. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
One of the boldest statements we've heard from the Detroit underground in years – and a great reminder that the city's legendary club sound is still alive and well – if you know where to look! Terrence Parker serves up a set that makes the Planet E label very proud – and which also maybe hits even more soulful territory than that imprint in its early days – kind of a rising, merging mode that also absorbs some of the best Chicago and New York currents, yet still keeps things very straightforward, with that special Detroit crackle that's always made the city's club tracks so exciting! Parker works with a few guests on the album – Merachka and Coco Street – and the set's about half vocal, and half instrumental – with tracks that include "Just Like Musik (main mix)", "Bassment Beats (TP bassment mix)", "God Loves Detroit (The Resurrection)", "Latter Rain (healing rain mix)", "Let's Go", "Lift Yo Hands Raise Em High", "The Sabbath", "Transition", and "Will You ever Come Back To Me".

PrincePurple Rain/God ... 12-inch

A great release of the song that really put Prince over the top – a song that got him maybe more play on rock and pop stations than he was ever getting on soul radio – and which for years became an anthem for folks who never would have touched his music in years before! The version here is the very long 8 minute take – which builds and builds – and "God" is a very cool non-LP b-side, which has this gentle vibe that's really beautiful – with lots of room for Prince's vocals to step out slowly into space! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Sun RaGod Is More Than Love Can Ever Be ... CD
Saturn/Cosmic Myth, 1979. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
One of the rarest 70s albums in the Sun Ra catalog – and one of the most unique, too – given that the format here is a piano trio, of the style often used by other jazz musicians – but completely transformed here in the hands of Ra! The music is sometimes straight, but always with angles – taking off nicely from the Horo Records mode right before – and delivered by Ra with this new sense of confidence and historical imagination on the keys of the piano – with great support from Richard Williams on bass and Luqman Ali on drums. There's no spacey production or weird instrumentation – but still, as with the Horo and Improvising Artists material, Sun Ra shows us what a tremendous jazz musician he can be in a more familiar setting – a great snap back to all those who ever might have called him a pretender. Titles include "Blythe Spirit Dance", "Tenderness", "Days Of Happiness", and "Magic City Blue". CD

Marty RobbinsDrifter/Saddle Tramp/What God Has Done/Christmas With Marty Robbins ... CD
Columbia/Morello (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99
A quartet of albums from the great Marty Robbins – all of which really shows his maturing transformation in the second half of the 60s! The two noteworthy ones here are The Drifter and Saddle Tramp – both of which are still in the cowboy mode that Robbins used to great fame at the start of the decade, but which also have this sadder, more melancholy quality that's mighty nice – a hint not just at some of the modes Marty would take in the 70s, but also at the outlaw generation that would emerge inspired by his music. What God Has Done is an album of spiritual songs – but delivered with a nicely heartfelt quality that's never hokey at all – and Christmas With Marty Robbins is again a nice change from the early days, and a surprisingly strong Holiday album. 2CD set features 42 tracks in all!

Columbia, 1978. Used 2LP + 12" ... Out Of Stock
A huge disco cash-in moment of the 70s – but a great one too, and a strong illustration of the power that Casablanca Records had in both the clubs and charts at the time! The movie and record were both a bit over-pressed upon release, but they nonetheless stand as a great snapshot of the way that funky soul had taken over the clubs during the disco generation – giving showcase to a whole host of new young artists, and exposing lots of mainstream listeners to soul music at a level they wouldn't have touched a few years before! Donna Summer was one of Casablanca's big acts at the time – and she really dominates the record with her classic rendition of "Last Dance", plus tracks "With Your Love" and a disco remake of "Je T'Aime Moi Non Plus". Both other cuts are strong too – and include "Lovin, Livin, & Givin" by Diana Ross, "Too Hot Ta Trot" by The Commodores, "Disco Queen" by Paul Jabara, "Leatherman's Theme" by Wright Bros Flying Machine, "Floyd's Theme" by Natural Juices, and "Find My Way" by Cameo.

✨✧ VariousRoots Of Gospel Music ... CD
HOB/Caroline, 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Maybe not the deepest roots of gospel, but an excellent collection of killer cuts from the catalog of Hob Records – one of the coolest labels from back in the day! Most of these tracks are of 70s vintage, and have a style that draws heavily on secular soul currents of the time, while letting the singers open up with some really righteous power – that new sense of pride and mission that really informed gospel in the decade, as both the recording opportunities and audiences grew tremendously. Titles include a great remake of "Feel Like Makin Love" – redone as "That's The Time" by Josephine Howard – in a total of 24 tracks that also include "Say A Prayer For Everyone" by The Swan Silvertones, "Wondering" by James Cleveland, "It Took A Miracle" by Rev Charles Taylor, "Help" by Shirley Caesar, "My God Has Promised" by Louise McCord, "After It's Over" by Harmonettes, "Bye & Bye" by Davis Sisters, "Elijah Rock" by Gertrude Bowman, and "Let God Abide" by Harmonizing Four.

✨✧ VariousWelcome To Zamrock 2 – How Zambia's Liberation Led To A Rock Revolution 1972 to 1977 (with booklet & download) ... LP
Now Again, Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic sounds for fans of funk and rock alike – music from the freaky, fuzzy 70s scene in Zambia – a place where styles effortlessly criss-crossed to really produce something new and unique! The work here is often heavy on fuzz guitars, but also has some wickedly soulful basslines and drums – so that although the tunes can be psych-styled, they're also pretty darn funky too – often at a level that's a bit like the Nigerian Afro Funk of the time, but much grittier and more righteous! The quality of the music and scene is explored in depth in the package – which includes a very detailed booklet of notes and photos – all to support the selection of music, which may well be the hippest so far from the Now Again label – and that's really saying a lot, if you know their other titles! Titles on volume 2 include "Really" by Crossbones, "History Of Man" by Amanaz, "Poor Man" by Five Revolutions, "Hold On" by Ngozi Family, "Katonga" by Musi-O-Tunya, "Request To God" by Oscillations, "Mpundu" by Tinkles, "Otenta" by Dr Footswitch, "Mad Man" by Born Free, "SM" by Mike Nyoni, "Hot Do" by Jesper Siliya Lungu, "I'm Not Made Of Iron" by Chrissy Zebby Tembo, "Umbwalwa Ne Chamba" by Peace, "Umwana Wakusanga Mung'Anda" by Fire Balls, and "See The Storm" by Salty Dog.

A more laidback set than usual from Ammons' early 70s stretch on Prestige – but a record that nicely gets back to that big-toned tenor sound he used often on ballads from earlier years! The combo mixes both electric piano and organ – the former from Hank Jones, the latter from Ernie Hayes – and drums are mostly by Idris Muhammad, but in a style that's a bit more roundly open and soul-based than some of his funkier jams. But there's still a nice groove to many numbers – a gentler one, with a sly undercurrent of soul – even on a few that feature fuller strings arranged by Ed Bogas. Titles include "God Bless The Child", "Strange Fruit", "Fine & Mellow", "Lady Sings The Blues", "Play Me", "Tin Shack Out Back", and "Ben". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Beach BoysPet Sounds (mono) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Capitol, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
One of the greatest records of all time – and don't you forget it! Despite the countless lines of type that have been written about this record, nothing does it full justice like an all-through listen – something we're reminded of every time we put this one on the turntable, which is a heck of a lot over the years! Brian Wilson busted his ass making this little gem – and the rest of the world, and the band, were never the same again – awash in harmonies that most other groups tried to match, set to themes of young loss, longing, and frustration that really mark an emotional development – not just in the Beach Boys, but in pop music in general. And although some of the tracks are ones you've heard a million times on oldies stations, they somehow resonate together much more strongly here – taking on new meaning as the smaller elements of each song come into constellation with each other – creating a complicated tapestry of feelings set to near-godlike orchestrations. Titles include "God Only Knows", "Caroline No", "Pet Sounds", "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times", "Wouldn't It Be Nice", and "You Still Believe In Me". LP, Vinyl record album

David BowieSpace Oddity ... LP
RCA, 1969. Near Mint- ... $49.99
An amazing departure for David Bowie – hardly the kind of record you would expect from his oboe-filled tunes of a few years before – and really the start of the groundbreaking, earthshaking, reinventionist era of his genius! There's a spacious, soaring quality to Space Oddity that's every bit the kind of magical music you might hope for in a set recorded at the close of the 60s – a shift into new modes, new sounds that seem to suck up all the best influences in rock from the previous few years, but fuse it into a new cosmic vision for the next decade. And while others might stumble on cliche with the weight of such a task, Bowie pulls it off brilliantly – mixing his fuzzier feelings with some of his more personal leanings – and showcasing a newly deep sense of songwriting here that's really amazing. Some tunes have the sensitivity of work on Hunky Dory, while others burn with the fire of Man Who Sold The World – all in a balance that never sounds schizophrenic at all. Titles include"Space Oddity", "Memory Of A Free Festival", "God Knows I'm Good", "Cygnet Committee", and "Unwashed & Somewhat Slightly Dazed". LP, Vinyl record album

Brand New HeaviesGet Used To It ... CD
Delicious Vinyl, 2006. Used ... $1.99
N'Dea Davenport returns to the Brand New Heavies – and the result is one of the greatest records from the group in many many years! The sound's here is totally wonderful – a real return to the classic funk of the Brand New Heavies' roots – and having N'Dea back in the vocal chair, it's almost as if 15 years have fallen off the calendar – taking us back to a time when we had complete and total faith in the group! Production is wonderful too – spare, stripped down, and with the grittier, more soulful edges of the first few records. Drums are heavy, basslines are tight, and we're plenty proud to say that after many years, the Brand New Heavies are very firmly back in the business of funky music! Great stuff all around – no hype, no gimmicks, and a real back to basics set that's probably a decade overdue! Titles include "Sex God", "Let's Do It Again", "We Won't Stop", "Get Used To It", "We've Got", "I Don't Know Why", "Right On", "Music", "All Fired Up", "Love Is", "I've Been Touched", and "I Just Realized".

Brenda & The TabulationsDry Your Eyes ... LP
Dionn, 1967. Very Good ... $29.99
Incredible early work from Brenda & The Tabulations – one of the best male/female soul groups of their era, yet one that's often sadly overlooked! This album will more than display why the group are so great – as they have a unique quality that's soft and sweet, yet also deeply soulful at the same time – making full use of the lead vocals of Brenda Payton, but supporting them with some rich male harmony backings from the rest of the Tabulations. And although the one gal, three guy format is one used by Ruby & The Romantics and Gladys Knight & The Pips, Brenda's take on the format is quite different – more like female soul outright, with some guy soul touches – and often done in a heartbreaking east coast harmony mode! Titles include the group's big early hit "Dry Your Eyes", plus other good originals like "The Wash", "Just Once in a Lifetime", and "Hey Boy". Also with "Stay Together Young Lovers", and "Who's Lovin You" – plus a wonderful remake of "God Only Knows". LP, Vinyl record album

Benjamin ClementineI Tell A Fly ... CD
Virgin, 2017. New Copy ... $7.99 11.98
One of the most unique artists we've heard in years – and one who will no doubt be setting the world on fire for years to come! Benjamin Clementine's a singer, but also a poet – inspired by jazz and classical music, yet working here in neither – and instead, finding a path that's completely his own – borne out with incredible creative energy right from the very first note, and continuing through amazing territory with each new song on the set! There's some deft work on piano and electric harpsichord on the record – but there's lots more waves of dark textures and other tones – all to showcase Clementine's vocals, which are unlike any other singer we can think of. Benjamin's hardly just another voice with downtempo rhythms or modern production – as his lyrics are far richer, and his sound here already speaks volumes of his experiences on both the Paris and London scenes – although we're betting he's going to take the whole world by storm soon. Like nothing else you've ever heard – and we mean that in the best way possible – with songs that include "One Awkward Fish", "Farewell Sonata", "Better Sorry Than Asafe", "God Save The Jungle", "Phantom Of Aleppoville", "Paris Cor Blimey", "Jupiter", and "Ode From Joyce".

Sam CookeSam Cooke Sings The Billie Holiday Story (aka Tribute To The Lady) ... LP
Up Front, 1959. Very Good+ ... $7.99
An early gem from the great Sam Cooke – a pre-RCA session, but one that already has Sam showing a stronger jazzy side of his talents – as you might guess from the title! The Lady, in this case, is the late Billie Holiday – recently passed at the time of this recording, and lovingly paid tribute to by a young Sam Cooke – with vocals that have a perfect blend of sweet and raspy to really unlock the tension in Holiday's music – yet also deliver the sound with a much different vibe overall. The set's a great example of how strongly Cooke could sing in a sophisticated jazzy style – and he does a great job with Holiday standards like "God Bless The Child", "Solitude", "Lover Girl", and "They Can't Take That Away From Me". Rene Hall did the orchestrations – and the album's an interesting example of how Cooke, like Holiday, could work within conventional forms to work a subtly progressive agenda! LP, Vinyl record album

Ghostly International, 2002. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
A tight early effort from Dabrye! Early on, Dabyre got lumped in with self-consciously modern "glitch hop" hop producers by comparison, but he's always had a style all his own – leaning pretty strongly on classic hip hop influences, just with a spacier sound. This one sounds pretty classic to us! The songs roll along nicely, just a little bit off kilter, dripping like honey, soulful in the way of some classic Detroit club music, which isn't far from this producer's home base of Ann Arbor. Tracks include "WON", "No Child Of God", "D-Town Tabernacle Choir", "This Is Where I Came From", "Take Me Home", and "Evelyn". LP, Vinyl record album

Even here, in later years, their sound is superb – a rich, deep approach to harmonies that's still head and shoulders above most other groups in the business! The production on the set is by Norman Harris and the Harris Machine – and some tracks get a Philly groove on, while others stick in a mellower ballad mode that's completely dominated by the group. Niceness abounds, and titles include "Private Property", "God Helps Those", "Don't Trick Me, Treat Me", "Wasted Tears", and "How Can One Man Be So Lucky".

Liberty, 1957. Very Good- ... $2.99
The birth of a sound and the birth of a legend – Martin Denny's first album in the Exotica series, and a record so great it named an entire genre! Denny certainly didn't invent the tropical style of easy listening that came to be known as "exotica" in the 50s – but with a record like this, he delivered the goods better than anyone else – by taking away all the too-sweet styles of Hawaiian music, and serving up a stripped-down, jazzy kind of sound! The album features Denny's classic original quartet – with Arthur Lyman on vibes and Augie Colon on bongos – and titles include "Stone God", "Jungle Flower", "Busy Port", "Lotus Land", and his hit recording of "Quiet Village".

The title track's a seventeen minute long swirling mix of vibes, piano, bass, and drums – with an excellent moody feel and a cool set of chromatic changes of the sort that characterized Walt's early work. The other two tracks are standards, but they're given the Dickerson twist, and sound beautiful and haunting, with an off-kilter edge. Andrew Hill plays piano, Andrew Cyrille's on drums – and titles include "To My Queen", "How Deep Is The Ocean", and "God Bless The Child".

Willie does a lot of his classics like "Wang Dang Doodle", "Bring It On Home", "My Babe", and "When I Make Love" and after all these years, we're coming to love this period a lot more, not only for Willie Dixon, but for the snapshot of the once far more fertile scene.

Blue Note, 2000. Used ... $4.99
We think this guy's one of the best new jazz vocalist to emerge over the past decade, and this album – his 4th for Blue Note – is far and away his best! The album was recorded live at Chicago's Green Mill nightclub – with nice small combo backing by Laurence Hobgood, Rob Amster, and Michael Raynor, plus guest horn work by Von Freeman, Eddie Johnson, and Ed Peterson. Kahil El'Zabar also plays percussion, and Jon Hendricks joins in on vocals a bit. But the best part is Elling's voice – which is a sweet mix between Mark Murphy at his best, and earlier vocalese masters, like Hendricks or Joe Lee Wilson. The album features mostly straight-ahead jazz vocalizing – with little of the hipster monologues that have ruined other Elling albums – and it includes an incredible version of Wayne Shorter's "Night Dreamer", plus the cuts "Oh My God", "Esperanto", "My Foolish Heart", "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes", and the King Pleasure classic "Don't Get Scared". A real treat – especially if you like Cleveland Watkiss' Green Chimneys album, or any of the good Mark Murphy recordings for Muse! CD

The final full album from the legendary Faces – a group who've got all their best elements sharply in focus here, in a way that really stands apart from the growing solo fame of Rod Stewart! Rod the god is still at the helm on vocals – and really sounds incredible – but the group energy of performance is what really drives things throughout – the vibe that makes you realize that these guys play together as well as they party together! Ronnie Wood is sublime on guitar, Kenny Jones tears up the drum kit, and Ronnie Lane's sense of timing holds the whole thing together beautifully. Titles include "Silicone Grown", "Cindy Incidentally", "My Fault", "Borstal Boys", "Glad And Sorry", "Just Another Honky", and the title track "Ooh La La" – which features Wood on lead vocals, and has maybe grown on to become one of the best-remembered Faces tracks over the years!

Fifty Foot Hose had a sound that was half rock/half electronics – one that well suited their placement on the Limelight label, and which was a perfect bridge between the far side of rock and more artful music experiments at the time. The album uses an incredible range of electronic goodies – including oscillators, theremin, prepared guitar, prepared thumb piano, echolette, and even "squeaky box" – in a heady heady sound that's topped off by some male and female vocals as well! There's plenty of bits in here that have attracted sample heads over the years – including one great break – but the album stands perfectly well on its own, and is a masterpiece throughout! Titles include "And After", "Red The Sign Post", "For Paula", "Fantasy", "God Bless The Child", "Cauldron", "The Things That Concern You", and "If Not This Time". LP, Vinyl record album

This album's the first to feature the group on their own, without Herbie – and if we don't mind saying so, they sound even better without him! The whole thing's a wonderful mix of jazz funk grooves and very unusual rhythms – and the record contains the monster full length version of "God Make Me Funky", which is 9 minutes and 35 seconds of non stop funk, plus the cuts "If You've Got It, You'll Get It", "Magic", and "Here & Now".

Verve, 1950s. New Copy 5CD ... $34.99 49.99
5 late albums from Billie Holiday – all collected in one sweet set, in tiny LP-styled sleeves, too! First up is Solitude – classic Billie Holiday for Verve – sad, blue-tinged, and recorded with great small combo backing – in a mode that really updates the sound of her initial recordings while still keeping the best elements intact! Players include Oscar Peterson, Alvin Stoller, Barney Kessell, and Ray Brown on the core group – plus bits of added solo work from Flip Phillips on tenor and Charlie Shavers on trumpet. Titles include "Solitude", "Moonglow", "Tenderly", "Everything I Have Is Yours", "East Of The Sun", "You Turned The Tables On Me", and "Easy To Love". Recital is not really a recital in the "live" sense, in that the album's a studio session – but a great batch of classic Verve sides by Billie Holiday! The care and quality of the record definitely demonstrate that the Verve years are some of Holiday's best – and for the session, Norman Granz has backed up Billie with a great batch of musicians – including Charlie Shavers on trumpet, Flip Philips on tenor, Barney Kessel on guitar, and Oscar Peterson on piano. Tracks include "Remember", "Yesterdays", "He's Funny That Way", "Stormy Weather", "My Man", and "Lover Come Back To Me" – and the cover has a portrait of Billie by David Stone Martin! Velvet Mood is a record with a velvet mood, but one with a bit of an edge – as you might expect from Billie Holiday in the 50s, hardly the stuff of a too-soft vocal date! The album's got Holiday working in wonderful small combo mode – getting some key Verve backup from players who include Sweets Edison on trumept, Benny Carter on alto sax, Barney Kessel on guitar, and Jimmy Rowles on piano – a warmly intimate group who really fit the sad-tinged vocals from Billie. Tracks are longish – maybe a bit more so than usual for a Holiday Verve session – and the set list includes beautiful renditions of "What's New", "I Gotta Right To Sing The Blues", "Prelude To A Kiss", and "When Your Lover Has Gone". Next is Lady Sings The Blues – possibly one of the most essential Billie Holiday albums for Verve – a set that carries the same title as her famous autobiography, and which also features many key numbers from her songbook at the time! The feel here is quite easygoing and relaxed – with small group backing behind Billie's vocals, which themselves are recorded cleanly and clearly throughout. One side features backing by a combo that includes Wynton Kelly on piano, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Charlie Shavers on trumpet, and Paul Quinichette on tenor – and the other features a group that includes Bobby Tucker on piano, Charlie Shavers on trumpet, Barney Kessel on guitar, and the great Willie Smith on alto sax. Titles include plenty of classics – including "God Bless The Child", "Strange Fruit", "Lady Sings The Blues", "No Good Man", "Good Morning Heartache", "I Must Have That Man", and "Trav'lin' Light". All Or Nothing At All is beautiful Billie from the last years of her life. The material was recorded in 1956 and 1957 in Hollywood, featuring Barney Kessel, Ben Wesbster, Harry Edison, and Jimmy Rowles – all grooving nicely in small group formation. The tracks have a wonderfully fragile quality – and although standards, are still some of Billie's nicest work for Verve. Titles include "April In Paris", "All Or Nothing At All", "We'll Be Together Again", and "But Not For Me". Great David Stone Martin cover, too! CD

Antonio Carlos JobimTide/Stone Flower ... CD
CTI/BGO (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
A pair of CTI records gems from Antonio Carlos Jobim – back to back on a single CD! First up is Tide – an incredible record from the first off-key note to the last! The album's filled with some wonderfully moody LA studio sounds, arranged by Deodato, and a has a great swirling mix of sound that weaves around Jobim's lofty guitar and piano beautifully – complex, but still with the airy sense of space that Antonio Carlos first brought to his music in the 60s. From the very first note, you can feel the strange magic of Jobim and Deodato at work – as the album appears to be smooth and mellow, yet has a strangely unsettling undertone that keeps us coming back after all these years! Tracks include "Tema Jazz", "Carinhoso", "Rockanalia", and a nice remake of "Girl From Ipanema". Stone Flower is one of Antonio Carlos Jobim's greatest records – and a perfect blend of his subtle bossa genius with the moody electric sound of CTI! Jobim plays electric and acoustic piano, guitar, and sings a bit – and Deodato handled the arrangements with a breezy brilliance that matches all the magic of Jobim's wonderful compositions, but gives them a slightly more fluid feel too – in a way that's somewhat more sophisticated than the sound of Jobim's previous CTI outings – Tide and Wave. Other players on the album include Joe Farrell on soprano sax, Hubert Laws on flute, and Airto on percussion – and there's a great mix of Brazilian and American styles on the set – electric, sinister, breezy, and always wonderful! Includes the titles "Sabia", "God & The Devil In The Land Of The Sun", "Children's Games", "Stone Flower", "Brazil", "Tereza My Love", and "Choro". CD

The fantastic final album from Sharon Jones – a wonderfully deep talent who was taken from us all too soon! The set's maybe the ultimate setting for Sharon's incredible voice – as it features both her longtime core combo, the Dap-Kings – as well as additional backings from the Bushwick Philharmonic – a small ensemble of strings who really help elevate the music to classic status! If you're worried that the strings might soften the sound, the very first note of the record will put your mind at rest – as will the heavy drums that mark just about every track, and keep things hard and funky throughout. If anyone ever doubted that the Daptone label was our modern equivalent of Stax Records or Atlantic, this will certainly be the set to change their mind – and will also stand forever as a bittersweet reminder of all the greatness that Sharon Jones gave us over the years. Titles include "Searching For A New Day", "Rumors", "Matter Of Time", "Sail On", "Just Give Me Your Time", "Come & Be A Winner", "Call On God", and "These Tears". CD

Daptone, 2010/2014/2017. New Copy 3CD ... $15.99 23.99
A triple-pack of soulful sounds from Sharon Jones – three albums together at a very nice price! The header of the set is Soul Of A Woman – the fantastic final album from Sharon Jones – a wonderfully deep talent who was taken from us all too soon! The set's maybe the ultimate setting for Sharon's incredible voice – as it features both her longtime core combo, the Dap-Kings – as well as additional backings from the Bushwick Philharmonic – a small ensemble of strings who really help elevate the music to classic status! If you're worried that the strings might soften the sound, the very first note of the record will put your mind at rest – as will the heavy drums that mark just about every track, and keep things hard and funky throughout. If anyone ever doubted that the Daptone label was our modern equivalent of Stax Records or Atlantic, this will certainly be the set to change their mind – and will also stand forever as a bittersweet reminder of all the greatness that Sharon Jones gave us over the years. Titles include "Searching For A New Day", "Rumors", "Matter Of Time", "Sail On", "Just Give Me Your Time", "Come & Be A Winner", "Call On God", and "These Tears". On Give The People What They Want, Sharon Jones steps out strongly with a sense of maturity that seems to take her vocals even farther than before – and The Dap Kings are more than ready to match her energy with some funky work of their own! Jones has gone through a lot in recent years – both with the band and in her own personal life – and the record's a proud summation of life's challenges and triumphs, served up in the instant-classic style that has made Sharon one of the greatest living soul singers of the past few decades. Bosco Mann knocked things out of the park with his raw production – and also wrote a good number of tracks on the set too – and titles include "Making Up & Breaking Up", "Long Time Wrong Time", "People Don't Get What They Deserve", "Retreat", "Stranger To My Happiness", and "Now I See". I Learned The Hard Way is the fourth album from Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings – solidifying what we learned pretty early on from the indomitable soul spirit that is Sharon and her impeccable combo the Dap-Kings – it's that this is not some retro soul revival novelty act, what they are is the greatest active embodiment of a true soul sound that will never go away! We've always loved that Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings recognize the studio and the stage as different worlds. On stage, Sharon is the possibly the most energetic, charismatic presence you'll ever see and the band brings heft and heat. In the studio, they stretch out and diversify wonderfully, bringing both raw, unpolished funky soul realness to some more stripped down numbers and a full on Stax or Hi level heaviness to the bigger ones. The songs are better and more memorable than ever on this record – with "The Game Gets Old" and "I Learned The Hard Way" (an astoundingly strong one/two punch for the opening minutes) plus "Better Things", "Give It Back", "Money". "The Reason", "Window Shopping", "I'll Still Be True", "Without A Heart", "If You Call" and "Mama Don't Like My Man". CD

Kendrick LamarDAMN. (collectors edition) ... CD
Aftermath/Interscope, 2017. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
DAMN!, indeed – Kendrick has yet to take even a small step down from the creative peak he's been riding for years – and takes another daring step forward with this strong, strident, no-mess-taking classic in the making! The surprise-announced DAMN! finds him taking on timely concerns – some longtime inherent to everyday racial, social, and class struggles in American life, and others that are purely personal. The production is diverse to a degree, but a bit straight forward compared to the sprawling, years-in-the-making To Pimp A Butterfly – all by design, as DAMN! is clearly made to sound fresh and urgent right now. But like all great musical art, it's built to stand the test of time. Includes guest producers, musicians and vocalists as varied as Thundercat, U2, Kamasi Washington, Kid Capri and Rihanna. This limited collectors edition has the tracks in reverse order from the original version and titles include "BLOOD.", "DNA.", "YAH.", "ELEMENT.", "LOYALTY." feat Rihanna, "PRIDE.", "LUST." with strings arranged by Kamasi Washington, "XXX." feat U2, "FEAR.", "GOD." and "DUCKWORTH."

John KlemmerSolo Saxophone 2 – Life ... LP
Elektra, 1981. Near Mint- ... $1.99
An early 80s set from John Klemmer – an album that's indeed mostly solo saxophone genius – and it's pretty wondeful! The record does have some additional instrumentation and vocalese from Klemmer, and a vocal tune with Clint Holmes, but it's the sparest stuff here that's really the focus. Klemmer's best work for Elektra in the early 80s is excellent – with brilliant soloing and an echoey tone that's nothing short of hypnotic – and a number of such tunes are found here! Very nice stuff from a fertile period for Klemmer. Titles include "Humanesque", "All I Ever Wanted Was My Life", "The Deepest Need Of The Human Heart", "Finesse (The Art Of Loving)", "The Mystery Of Being", "The Rain Is The Tears Of My God For Me", "The Struggle To Be Free" and more.

Langley Schools Music ProjectInnocence & Despair ... LP
Gammon/Bar None, Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $26.99 28.99
A very strange little album – one of those records that was created without any interest in an audience – but which has gone on to become the stuff of legend over time! The set features vocal performances by a group of rural school students recorded in the mid 70s – often performing alongside just a bit of sad-tinged piano or guitar, as they deliver these surprisingly compelling versions of songs from their generation – tunes by David Bowie, Wings, The Beach Boys, and others – in versions that are completely different than the originals. The whole thing's about as strange as you can imagine – and has had a huge amount of attention and followers over the years. Titles include "Band On The Run", "God Only Knows", "Space Oddity", "Venus & Mars", "Wildfire", and "Calling Occupants Of Interplanetary Craft". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John LennonPlastic Ono Band ... LP
Apple, 1970. Very Good- ... $9.99
Lennon's first proper solo LP, after the breakup of the Beatles, recorded largely by himself, with some help from Yoko, Phil Spector, Ringo Starr, Klaus Voorman, and Billy Preston. One of those pieces of the rock canon that it seems hardly anything needs to be said about it at this point, but we'll at least offer it's one of the greatest stripped down rock statements/confessionals of all time, in spite of the fact that you can read that just about anyplace else you care to look. Includes "Mother", "Hold On", "I Found Out", "Working Class Hero", "Isolation", "Remember", "Love", "Well Well Well", "Look At Me", "God" and "My Mummy's Dead". LP, Vinyl record album
(US Apple label pressing, including inner sleeve.)

✨✧ Fergus MacRoyFergus MacRoy – Mystic ... LP
Kilmarnock, 1973. Sealed ... $44.99
One of the coolest records recorded by Galt MacDermot's legendary Kilmarnock label – a brilliant showcase of the talents of singer/songwriter Fergus MacRoy, who's actually Galt himself – working here as a quirky vocalist with a sound that's a bit like that of Bob Dorough! Fergus' singing style is a lot like Dorough – but recorded here in the early 70s, he's working in a mode that's a bit trippier, a bit hippier – in a batch of cool little tunes written about his spiritual awakening! The backings are especially great, and feature skittish drums, rolling basslines, and thin electric piano lines – all coming across very much like the music on some of the other Kilmarnock albums of the time, but sounding somehow even better here on this set, supporting Fergus' unique vocal stylings. The lyrics are pretty darn catchy, and often have a sing-songy feel that again reminds us of Dorough's work – as does Fergus' flat, but honest delivery of the tunes – but the whole thing really works best because of the slightly funky rolling undercurrent to the backings! Titles include "Never Broke A Heart", "A New Day", "Down In The Southern Ocean", "His Eyes", "That's Loving", "Is God Dead", and "They Said Things". LP, Vinyl record album

Junior ManceSoul Eyes (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Pony Canyon (Japan), 2004. New Copy ... $15.99
Junior Mance works in a great trio here – one that really helps capture the deeper side of his talents on the piano – thanks to strong contributions from Paul West on bass and Idris Muhammad on drums! There's a fair bit of blues-tinged tunes in the mix, but the set also includes some wider-ranging jazz numbers as well – really showing off that round, full tone that's always made Mance so great – captured here beautifully by the open, yet understated production of this Japanese label session – at a level that Junior maybe wouldn't have had on an American date. Titles include Mance's own "Jubilation", plus "Soul Eyes", "Lester Leaps In", "Solitude", "Funky Carnival", "Stormy Monday", "Jitterbug Waltz", and "God Bless The Child". CD

Watt, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
Interesting concept recording featuring a small group of players related to the ECM scene palying Michael Mantler compositions with vocals based on the poems and stories of Edward Gorey. The music has that atmospheric quality of ECM recordings of the time, as you might expect, featuring as it does Carla Bley, Steve Swalow, Jack DeJohnette & Terje Rypdal, plus vocals by Robert Wyatt as well as some spoken bits. 6 numbers in all "The Sinking Spell", "The Object-Lesson", "The Insect God", "The Doubtful Guest", "The Remembered Visit" & "The Hapless Child", in a gatefold sleeve with Gorey's poems inside and a nice Gorey illustration on the front.

Wes MontgomeryIn The Wee Small Hours (aka Fusion) ... LP
Riverside, Early 60s. Very Good ... $5.99
A pretty darn important album for Wes – as it was his first session with the sort of larger arrangements that would later make him huge! Although Montgomery was mostly recording for Riverside in small combos, this session has him playing in front of larger backings by Jimmy Jones – not as sublime as later work by Don Sebesky or Gil Evans, but done in a way that definitely shows that Wes can do a lot with the guitar when freed from the need to stick with the rhythm strongly. Titles include "All The Way", "Pretty Blue", "Somewhere", "God Bless The Child", "Tune Up", and "Baubles Bangles & Beads". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Oliver NelsonBlack, Brown, & Beautiful ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
One of Oliver Nelson's hippest albums – a bold statement of righteous energy, and a fantastic summation of all the genius he'd created during the 60s as an arranger for other people's records! The record is almost at a Duke Ellington level – a complex yet soulful suite of tracks for the post-60s years – complete with some sound effects of rioting and urban strife at the beginning, and a mix of modern, modal, and compositional styles that bursts out with pride and power that we wouldn't have heard in Nelson's music a decade before! The soloists are great – and the album features wonderful read work from John Klemmer, Frank Strozier, and Nelson himself – on great original titles that include "Self Help Is Needed", "I Hope In Time A Change Will Come", "Requiem Afterthoughts", "Lamb Of God", and "Martin Was A Man A Real Man".

New BirthLove Potion ... LP
Warner, 1976. Very Good Gatefold ... $2.99
Great later work from New Birth – quite different from their earlier albums, and much tighter overall – done with a smooth sophisticated modern soul groove that's light years ahead of their early party soul! The group's a lot more unified here – with less of the traded vocals and changing ensemble style of the RCA albums – and throughout the set, they emerge as a solid soul act to rival some of the bigger ensembles of the time! The album features some really strong extended tracks done in a sweet, mellow, midtempo groove – and titles include "I Never Felt This Way Before", "We Are All God's Children", "Fallin In Love", "Sure Thing", and "Hurry Hurry".

OdysseyOdyssey (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
A crossover classic from the late 70s – a record that was born in the clubs, but bred in the mainstream – and the start of a very good relationship between Odyssey and RCA! The album will forever be known for its classic cut "Native New Yorker" – a seminal groover that balances disco rhythms with mainstream 70s soul – but overall, the record's got even more to offer than that gem – including some surprisingly well-done mellower cuts that really make great use of the vocals of Lillian and Louise Lopez. Production is by Sandy Linzer and Charles Calello – the latter of whom is clearly right at home with the groovers – and in addition to "Native New Yorker", other cuts include "Ever Lovin Sam", "You Keep Me Dancin", "Thank You God For One More Day", "Weekend Lover", "Easy Come Easy Go", and "Golden Hands". Bonus tracks include "Native New Yorker (12" disco mix)" and "Weekend Lover (7" remix)". CD

OriginalsOriginals – Essential Collection ... CD
Motown/Spectrum (UK), Early 70s. Used ... $6.99
One of Motown's most overlooked groups – finally given their full due! The Originals were a wonderful harmony soul quartet who mostly recorded for Motown in the 70s, but who also had a lot of older 60s touches in their work – a simpler, more innocent approach to soul that wasn't often shared by some of their contemporaries. Their vocals are clean, pure, and have a sparkling intensity that you don't often associated with Motown – with a raspy soulfulness that made them a favorite group of more than a few, including Marvin Gaye, who was one of their biggest supporters! This 18 track set brings together a very well-selected batch of tunes from their Motown singles and albums – with titles that include "The Bells", "We Got A Way Out Love", "Don't Stop Now", "Lie No 2", "Come Rain Or Shine", "Ooh, I Got A Crush On You", "Don't Turn The Lights Off", "It Could Never Happen", "God Bless Whoever Sent You", "I Like Your Style", "I'm Someone Who Cares", "Baby I'm For Real", and "The Only Time You Love Me".

Andy PrattFurther Disruption EP ... CD
Thrift Girl, 2018. New Copy ... $9.99
Chicago's Andy Pratt further disrupts any dismissive ideas we might've had in recent years about neo-classic singer-songwriters – he's got a raw, real sound, slightly raspy and charismatic voice, and unpretentiously poetic lyrical sensibility that's straight-up irresistible. This great little follow-up EP to his Horizon Disrupted album – again recorded by Steve Albini – has a rawer feel, played in a warm trio setting with a roots rock vibe that serves the lyricism well. Andy didn't reach out to analog devotee engineer Albini for his famous name. It's a studio recording, but has the vibe of a late night barroom live set that's so good you've tuned out the crowd chatter and clattering bottles. That's how perfectly Albini captures it. We really think Pratt would've sounded right at home on Asylum Records in its artist-friendly prime, and nowadays folks like him have to do it DIY, which makes it all the more endearing. Includes "Lincoln Avenue", "God Only Gives You So Many Drinks", "Thrift Store Girl", "Get Close To Me" and "Happiness Is Home". CD
