James BrownGettin' Down To It ... LP
King, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $16.99
A great little album by James Brown – and very different than his other work! He cut this one with the groovy Dee Felice Trio – a jazz-based combo that he recorded on their own for King, on another very rare, very excellent record. The band's in similar form here, although not necessarily as funky – and they do a great job of giving James' vocals a jazzy twist that they don't have on other albums – proving yet again that The Godfather can handle just about any sort of groove that he wants! Features a wonderfully groover version of "Sunny", which moves along very nicely – plus remakes of "There Was A Time" and "Cold Sweat", along with the tracks "Uncle" and "That's Life". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has an unglued bottom seam.)

James BrownSay It Loud – I'm Black & I'm Proud ... LP
Polydor, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A bomb! The title of this one says it all – a burning anthem of pride and power, issued in 1969, at the end of one of the most troubling decades in America. James answers all the Uncle Tom cries from his critics – and comes up with "Say It Loud", an instant chant that was taken up around the world, and which still packs a pretty hard punch today! The album's filled with other excellent cuts – like the tasty funk number "Lickin' Stick", with some rocket-driven guitar, and the great instrumental "Shades of Brown". Other titles include "Goodbye My Love (parts 1&2)", "Let Them Talk", "I Love You", and "I Guess I'll Have To Cry Cry Cry". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Say It Loud – I'm Black & I'm Proud ... LP 9.99

Bill JenningsEnough Said! (second cover) ... LP
Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $14.99
A heavy set of hard-wailing soul jazz – a real lost treasure recorded by guitarist Bill Jennings (formerly "Wild" Bill Jennings during his R&B years), in a lean quintet format with help from organist Jack McDuff! Jennings and McDuff were playing together heavily at the time – and the feel here is quite similar to some of Jack's earliest albums on Prestige – particularly in the way the organ stops are set, with that wide-ranging sound that was quite popular at the end of the 50s – before the changes of the next decade had the instrument tightened up a bit more. Other members of the group include Al Jennings on additional guitar, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Al Johnson on drums – and titles include "Enough Said", "Tough Gain", "Volare", "Blue Jams", and "Dig Uncle Will". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has some wear.)

Zoot Money's Big Roll BandBig Time Operators – The Singles 1964 to 1966 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia/Wah Wah (Spain), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Slammin soul from Zoot Money – one of the hottest acts going on the mid 60s London scene, and an artist whose work was awash in styles borrowed from American R&B and soul jazz! Zoot's work of the time was a key force in opening the door to more soul-based sounds in the UK – and although others always credit the Rolling Stones with bringing blues to Britain, we've always been much more partial to the jazz-based styles of Zoot Money and others of the beat group generation – whose work helped transform sounds tremendously, and allow a shift towards more progressive fusions in years to come! The vibe on most of these tracks borrows heavily from James Brown, Ray Charles, and other bigger American soul acts – but there's also plenty of smoking Hammond and deeply-blown tenor on most tracks too, furthering the jazzier side of Money's sound. The set features all of Zoot's important singles, both a and b-sides – and titles incude "The Uncle Willy", "Good", "Bring It On Home To Me", "Let's Run For Cover", "Self Discipline", "Zoot's Sermon", "Mound Moves", "Star Of The Show", "Jump Back", "It Should've Been Me", "Please Stay", and "Zoot's Suit". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500 copies – in a great cover that has that classic UK 60s back-flap style, with a bonus insert of notes and photos too!)

New York CityI'm Doin' Fine Now ... LP
Chelsea, 1972. Sealed ... $14.99
Man, that east coast harmony sound couldn't miss in the 70s – as proven by the huge AM radio success of New York City! The band wasn't the greatest harmony group in the world – although they did feature John Brown, who'd cut his teeth in the Five Satins – but when you teamed them up with production by Thom Bell, and backing from the Sigma Sound Studios, they created an unstoppable sound that was a perfect pop peddling of the harmony group sound. This album was their biggest – and it includes the classic "I'm Doin' Fine Now", plus lots of other nice tracks like "Hang Your Head In Shame", "Quick, Fast, In A Hurry", "Uncle James", and "Reach Out". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed 70s pressing. Cover has a cut out mark.)

VariousTighten Up – Vol 1 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Trojan (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
The reggae compilation that started it all, way back in the late 60s! Few compilations reach the sort of classic status reserved for top-shelf albums that become perennial favorites, but this seminal compilation that broke Jamaican music onto the world stage easily qualifies – and has endured for years! The album's an astoundingly great collection of rock steady and early reggae tracks, and would later evolve into a series of 8 volumes – of which this is the classic first entry. Titles include the Untouchables "Tighten Up", the Uniques "Watch This Sound", Derrick Morgan's "Fat Man", Byron Lee & the Dragonaires' "Soul Limbo", the Mellotones "Uncle Charlie", Alton Ellis & Lloyd Williams "I Can't Stand It", and Tommy McCook & the Supersonics' "Reggay". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful heavy pressing – better than the original!)
