✨✧ Brand NubianIn God We Trust ... LP
Rush/Elektra, 1992. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $21.99
Early 90s greatness from Brand Nubian! Once Puba left the group, we were all ready for this sophomore effort to just fall flat. But Sadat X and Lord Jamar aquit themselves nicely on the mic, and the beats are head-noddingly satisfying too, no doubt due to Dante Ross's guidance. And they don't let up on their hardcore 5% stance either. Classic! Includes the classic singles "Allah U Akbar", "Love Me Or Leave Me Alone" and "Punks Jump Up To Get Beat Down", plus "Travel Jam", "Steal Ya 'Ho", "Steady Bootleggin'", "Black Star Line", "Meaning Of The 5%", "Ain't No Mystery", "Pass The Gat", 'Allah & Justice", "The Godz. . .", "Brand Nubian Rock The Set" and "Black & Blue".

Kenny BurrellGod Bless The Child ... LP
CTI, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $16.99
A stone classic from Kenny Burrell – a record that brought the guitarist to a whole new audience, with a wonderful sound that's a perfect summation of CTI at its best! The vibe here is perfect – spare, airy guitar lines from Burrell – playing with a freer style than usual, although with all of the deep soul of before – in ways that are a bit like the early Wes Montgomery material for CTI, but taken to the next level with a more sophisticated set of backdrops too! Don Sebesky handled arrangements, Freddie Hubbard solos alongside Kenny, and many track shave some mighty nice electric piano, too. Titles include funky track "Love Is The Answer", and mellower tunes "Child Is Born", "Do What You Gotta Do", and "Be Yourself". LP, Vinyl record album

Chi-Lites(For God's Sake) Give More Power To The People ... LP
Brunswick, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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! LP, Vinyl record album

Sam Cooke/Blind Boys/Gospel HarmonettesI Thank God ... LP
Doxy (Italy), 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Seminal sounds from the early years of soul music – that time when spiritual recordings had a strong influence on the style of the secular world – as showcased in the album's cover shot of the great Sam Cooke! The collection brings together some of Sam's gospel recordings alongside work by two other groups who were more spiritual overall – The Gospel Harmonettes and The Blind Boys – both great vocal groups who really show how much the gospel harmony style went onto influence soul groups for the 60s. The package is great – and really gets at the roots of Cooke's legendary sound – and titles include "I Thank God", "Deep River", "That's Heaven To Me", and "Steal Away" by Sam; plus "Jericho Walls, "Love Lifted Me", and "Trust & Obey" by Gospel Harmonettes; and "Oh Lord Fix It", "This Friend Jesus", and "You Got To Move" by The Blind Boys.

✨✧ Otis G JohnsonEverything – God Is Love 78 ... LP
Numero, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 16.98
Otis Johnson may well be the Timmy Thomas of gospel music – as here, he's working with just spare organ lines and rhythm machine – in a way that gives most of these tracks the raw, personal feel of Timmy's classic "Why Can't We Live Together"! The overall sound is a bit more rough – given that Otis was working in a small Michigan studio, and not the TK scene in Miami – but the album's definitely got that slow-stepping feel we love in Timmy's early music – and the vocals echo out with this personal sense of yearning that's mighty great – and quite different than the bolder, confident sound you'd hear in more mainstream gospel recordings. The album's a damn enigma, and a great one too – and titles include "All Thing", "Come Back", "Your Day", "He's The Way", and "Time To Go Home". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great packaging too – with a heavy tip-on cover, and a sweet rice paper obi!)

A great presentation of the soundtrack to Roger Vadim's classic film And God Created Woman (Et Dieu Crea La Femme) – one that features spoken narration from Brigitte Bardot, plus the full instrumental soundtrack by Paul Misraki! The album features Misraki's music with Bardot's narration – working almost as an audio portrait of the film, with Brigitte sounding super sexy when she speaks – and Misraki couching her voice amidst swelling strings and larger orchestrations! The album's got an extremely visual feel – almost like a mini-movie you can put on your turntable. LP, Vinyl record album

Billy PrestonThat's The Way God Planned It (remastered edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
Apple, 1969. Used Gatefold ... $9.99
Righteous churchy soul from Billy Preston – with all the cliches and flourishes that made him a hit with the kids back in the old days! George Harrison produced, and that aspect of the record is perhaps its strongest – as Preston come across in the heavy wall of sound mode used by The Beatles at the end of their career, and Harrison at the beginning of his. Titles include "Keep It To Yourself", "Hey Brother", "What About You?", "This Is It", and a two-part reading of "That's The Way God Planned It". CD features 3 bonus tracks from a previous reissue of the album – "Through All Times", "As I Get Older", and an alternate take of "That's The Way God Planned It" – plus the never before released bonus track "Something's Got To Change".

Atlantic, 1971. Very Good- ... $0.49
Yipes, this must have been a clear indication of just how popular the show really was! The album's little more than bits lifted off the TV soundtrack – with bits that include "Why God Made Hands", "Sweety Pie Roger", "VD Day", "God is Black", and "Jury Duty". We're guessing that this one probably secretly sold more to the middle-American right wingers who were buying Barry Goldwater records a few years before – than it did to the New York liberals who could get the irony of the material.

✨✧ Robbie BashoFalconer's Arm Vol 2 ... LP
Takoma/No Label, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
Incredible early work from the great Robbie Basho – a guitarist who's often known as a contemporary of John Fahey – but one that we might well put in an entirely different class altogether! The music here is mostly solo guitar – on 12-string and standard acoustic guitar – and Basho has this sublime way of spinning out these long, almost modal lines – clearly inspired a bit by Indian music, given his comments in the notes – but with a result that's very much his own, and which has this sonic sensibility that's years ahead of his time! If you dig Fahey or Sandy Bull, you'll find plenty to dig here too – but there's also elements of Basho's late 60s performance that wouldn't turn up until decades later in the playing and phrasing of others. Titles on this second volume include "Variations On Shakespeare Wallah", "Song Of The Snowy Ranges", "Pasha", and "Song Of God". LP, Vinyl record album

Jon Batiste & Stay HumanSocial Music ... CD
Razor & Tie, 2013. Used ... $1.99
A really unique album from pianist Jon Batiste – a set that's straight jazz at some points, a bit Crescent City at others, but always with a feel that's very individual – and one of the freshest new styles we've heard in years! Jon's instrumental tracks are wonderful – full of rich feeling and color that comes not just from his own work on piano and other keyboards, but also from the quintet's instrumentation – which occasionally features tuba used in this unusual bassy-bottom mode – alongside great alto from Eddie Barbash. Some numbers are vocal tracks – with lyrics that are personal, and surprisingly powerful – usually relatively simple, but integrated with the instrumentation at a level that's very different than the usual jazz vocal mode. Titles include "It's Alright", "Lonely Cry In Manhattan", "D Sharp Movement 1", "The Spirit Is With Us", "Express Yourself", "Let God Lead", "San Spirito", and "Naima's Love Song". CD

Andy & The Bey SistersRound Midnight (original pressing) ... LP
Prestige, 1965. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of the rare few records recorded by a young Andy Bey and his sisters! The group was an obscure jazz harmony trio formed by Andy in his earlier years – and it features him on piano, joining with the vocals of his two sisters Salome and Geradine Bey – in a soulful, moody style that's unlike anything else we can think of! Their three heavenly voices are backed by Kenny Burrell's guitar, Milt Hinton's bass, and Osie Johnson's drums, and there's lots of room around the arrangments for the Beys to stretch out and sing beautifully. Includes a haunting arrangment of "Round Midnight", plus "God Bless The Child", "Everytime We Say Goodbye", "Solitude", and the "Love Medley". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover is great on front – and has some very interesting jazz DJ notes on back.)

Big BoysLullabies Help The Brain Grow (limited edition cassette) ... Cassette
Modern Classics/Burger, 1983. New Copy ... $3.99 12.98
Early 80s underground rock from 80s punk genre blenders Big Boys – a band that would go from furious hardcore blasts, to horn heavy punk funk from one track to the next – and sometimes in the same track! There was really no one exactly like the Big Boys back then, and they trailblazed paths for a lot of bands we'd associate with the southern California "skake rock" in the years to come – which is especially fascinating, given that The Big Boys are from Austin, TX! As varied as their approach is, it's ultimately still in the punk wheelhouse, thanks to raw production – courtesy of SST records house producer Spot – and the bands manic energy and really reckless lyrics. Includes "We Got Your Money", "Lesson", "Funk Off", "I'm Sorry", "We're Not In It To Lose", "Gator F**kin", "Brick Wall", "Baby Let's Play God" and more. Cassette

Jaimeo BrownTranscendence ... CD
Motema, 2013. New Copy ... $7.99 14.99
A compelling conception from drummer Jaimeo Brown – a set that mixes the jazz performance of his trio with inspiration from older gospel music – in particular the famous work of the Gee's Bend Singers, who are sampled here on a number of tracks! About half the record draws vocals from vintage Gee's Bend recordings – and the other half shifts between instrumental passages, and other new vocal performances with singer Selah Brown, Marisha Brown, and Falu. At the core, Brown's trio keeps things on edge, and pushes the project far from hoke with their nicely dark tones – subtle work on drums from Jaimeo, plus tenor from JD Allen and guitar from Chris Sholar. Titles include "Mean World", "You Can't Hide", "Patience", "Power Of God", "Be Free", "You Needn't Mind Me Dying", and "Baby Miesh". CD

The rhythms really take off in this late 70s burner from Can – a record that re-focuses their energy a bit from before, but with a blend of elements that's still more amazing than most of their contemporaries! The record intertwines heavy drums from Jaki Liebezeit with percussion from Reebop Kwaku Baah and basslines from Rosko Gee – all with this strong focus on the rhythms that's sometimes skittish, sometimes straightforward, but always progressively stepping ahead into the next musical moments – which often include loads of keyboard lines from Irmin Schmidt and fuzzy guitar work from Michael Karoli! Vocals stand out on a few tracks, but others are more instrumentally focused – and titles include "Serpentine", "Give Me No Roses", "Like Inobe God", "November", "Pauper's Daughter & I", and "One More Day".

Doug CarnRevelation ... CD
Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99 18.99
The Black Jazz recordings of Doug Carn are always a revelation – some of the most powerful, progressive work on the American underground of the early 70s – music that got Carn into way more record collections than you might expect! The sound here is a perfect summation of Doug's early genius – his own work on organ and keyboards, never overdone and mixed perfectly with a righteous array of acoustic sounds from Rene McLean on alto and tenor and Olu Dara on trumpet – both players who soar to the skies on waves of energy begun by Carn! Wife Jean Carn sings on a number of tracks – with this heavenly style that's mighty righteous – every bit as soulful as her later work at Philly International, but in a very different way. The set includes Doug's great reading of "Naima" – plus other wonderful cuts that include "Power & Glory", "Feel Free", "Jihad", "Fatherhood", and "God is One". CD

Nell Carter with Galt MacDermotNell Carter Sings The Gospel – Take This Bread – A Mass In Our Time ... CD
Kilmarnock, 1973. New Copy ... $10.99
A wonderful little record that's way way more than you'd even expect from the title – an early 70s collaboration between arranger Galt MacDermot and singer Nell Carter on a project of all original material with a very soulful vibe! The set isn't gospel tunes sung by a soul artist – and instead features these cool, complicated grooves that have all the best MacDermot touches that we love in his best soundtracks – played by Galt on piano with Bernard Purdie on drums, Seldon Powell on tenor, and Bad Bascomb on bass – a mighty tight combo who make the whole thing groove a lot more than you'd expect! And Nell Carter isn't the only singer, either – as the record also features a lot of work by Salome Bey, of Andy & The Bey Sisters fame – as well as the Howard Roberts Chorale, who were really getting righteous at this time. Many titles are short, and the whole thing works together beautifully as kind of a single piece – with titles that include "Cleaning Me With Fire", "May God Care", "Strange Gods", "Self From Self", "Up To The Altar", "In The Name Of The Father", "Sanctus", and "Out Of The Depths".

Relativity/Legacy, 1990s. Used ... $4.99
An overview of Common's early days on Relativity – featuring a few tracks each from Can I Borrow A Dollar?, Resurrection and One Day It Will All Make Sense – a strong sampler of his earlier greatness, if it breaks off way too early to be a genuine best of! Quibble as me might with the title, a compilation of Com's Relativity-era work is long overdue – and it's a display of his 90s Chi hip hop style. If you only came aboard with Like Water For Chocolate or Be, you need to take a look back! Benchmark work with production by Immenslope & Twilite Tone, No ID, Beatnuts and more. Tracks include "Take It EZ", "Breaker 1/9", "Soul By The Pound", "Charms Alarm", "Heidi Hoe", "I Used To Love HER", "Resurrection", "Thisisme", "Retrospect For Life" feat Lauryn Hill, "All Night Long" feat Erykah Badu, "GOD" featruing Cee Lo, "High Expectations" and more.

Como MamasGet An Understanding (limited edition) ... LP
Daptone, 2013. New Copy ... $13.99 17.99
Rootsy gospel from The Como Mamas – a tremendous trio of female singers, working here in an all-acapella mode that's completely sublime! The set's an offshoot of the Como Now project done by Daptone a few years ago, and has the same timeless feel – quite a difference from the heavy funk you might normally hear on Daptone, yet equally soulful all the way through! The tunes are spiritual, but served up with more than enough depth to please any fan of secular soul, too – and the lack of any instrumentation, mixed with straightforward production, all makes the record feel like some lost indie label gem from decades ago. Titles include "Nobody's Fault But Mine", "Peace Of Mind", "Thank Him Enough", "God Is Good To Me", "I Know It Was The Blood", "Old Landmark", "Ninety Nine & A Half Won't Do", and "Soon I Will Be Done".

Karen Dalton1966 (plus download) ... LP
Delmore, 1966. New Copy ... $19.99
The third in a series of unearthed archival release of treasures by 60s folk singer, guitarist and banjo player Karen Dalton from Delmore Recordings – and it's also the third completely beautiful and revelatory Karen Dalton release from Delmore Recordings! For years, Dalton was best known by her peers in the early 60s folk community, particularly the Greenwich Village scene, where she was beloved by Dylan and other soon-to-be giants. Thanks in no small part to the great stuff brought to light by Delmore and the stellar Light In The Attic reissues, she's finally getting an audience beyond pivotal fellow musicians, which is truly thrilling. 1966 features songs recorded that year in her cabin in Summerville, Colorado – between the Green Rocky Road recordings of a few years earlier and the recordings that would make up her first official album, which wouldn't be released until '69. She's sometimes accompanied by Richard Tucker on guitar and vocal duets. Karen was infamously self-conscious on stage and in the studio, so these informal home recordings find her at her intimate, soulful best. Includes one the best versions of Tim Hardin's "Reason To Believe" we've ever heard, plus "Katie Cruel", "Cotton Eyed Joe", "Green Rocky Road", "God Bless The Childen", "Other Side To This Life", "Don't Make Promises", "Mole In The Ground", "Misery Blues", "Little Bit Of Rain" and more. Also includes excellent notes by Ben Edmonds. LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Davis/Charlie VenturaBattle Of Saxes ... LP
King, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $19.99
Tremendous tenor work from both parties involved – but especially from Eddie Davis, who always sounds wonderful on his early sides for King! Davis has a clear, clean tone that's totally great – and given the short space of these tunes, he really gets a lot done with a little – in a tight way that's somewhat different than his later sides for Prestige. Backing on the Davis sides includes some organ – probably by Shirley Scott – and titles include "Mean To Me", "All Of You", "Out Of Nowhere", "All God's Chillun Got Rhythm", and "If I Were A Bell". Charlie Ventura's great too – a bit more modern, almost, than on some of his better-known sides – and playing with a mean, lean, boppish tone. Ventura titles include "Liza", "Give Me The Simple Life", "If I Had You", and "I Can't Give You Anything But Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Martin DennyExotica ... LP
Liberty, 1957. Very Good ... $5.99
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".

Columbia (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $9.99
A sweet electric rendezvous from guitarist Al Di Meola – and a record that stands in sharp contrast to some of the mellower acoustic sessions he was cutting at the time! The album's got a mix of fuzz and funk that's a bit like some of Stanley Clarke's albums for Columbia in the same stretch – never too rocking, and always with a sense of jazz firmly in place – but definitely tuned towards a new electric generation for the 80s! The other players really support that energy – and include Jan Hammer and Philippe Saisse on keyboards, Anthony Jackson on bass, and Steve Gadd on drums – and although Al plays acoustic guitar at a number of points, the overall setting is highly electric. Titles include "Cruisin", "Black Cat Shuffle", "Somalia", "Jewel Inside A Dream", "God Bird Change", "Passion Grace & Fire", and "Ritmo De La Noche". CD

What separates this one from some of the other recent underground all-star compilations is that the whole 'very serious underground' feel doesn't way this one down. Other standout tracks include Feel X & Eminem "Hustlers and Hardcore", Bamboo "Not the Ones To Sleep", Sins of Reality "Sins of Reality" LP, Vinyl record album
