Badder Than Evil/Barbara Mason/New BirthGordon's War ... LP
Buddah, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A brilliant funky soundtrack – with great work from a number of different artists! The Buddah soul stable came out in full force for this soundtrack, including Harvy Fuqua, The New Birth, Barbara Mason, and Horace Ott – as well as the little known group Badder Than Evil! They play on the great instrumental track "Hot Wheels", which is the chase theme in the film, and a great sample track! Also includes "Super Shine #9", sung by Sister Goose & the Ducklings, which is a very groovy, goofy, soulful number – plus the tracks "Child Of Tomorrow", "Harlem Dreams", "Child Of Tomorrow", and "Come On & Dream Some Paradise".

WarAll Day Music ... CD
United Artists/Avenue, 1971. New Copy ... $8.99 9.99
A sweet sweet set from the mighty War – and maybe the record that really has the group coming into their own! The record's got a stronger vocal presence than earlier War efforts, which is a really great thing – kind of a blend of sweet soul, heavy funk, and Chicano modes – all served up with this ultra-hip East LA sort of vibe that's way more interested in finding the best sweet spot in the music, than it is trying to figure out any labels for its groove! This approach rings out famously in the classic "Slipping Into Darkness" – which gets a 7 minute workout here – but the whole thing is great, and other titles include the seminal "Baby Brother", plus "Nappy Head", "Get Down", and "There Must Be A Reason".

Avenue, 1973. New Copy ... $8.99 9.99
War delivers the word, and a whole lot more as well – that amazing blend of styles that always made the group way more than just the sum of its parts! The classic groove is very firmly in place here – a great style that mixes jazz funk with a freer jamming style borrowed from Latin music – served up on a batch of long tracks that really let the band open up and groove! Vocals are part of the plan, but the instrumentation often gets as much time in the spotlight as well – and the set includes the classic jammer "Me & Baby Brother", plus "H2 Overture", "Blisters", "Southern Part Of Texas", "In Your Eyes", and "Gypsy Man".

A massive jammer from War – and a record that brought the group to a whole new generation of listeners – as well as a good number of later fans who discovered some of these jams in the club! The groove here isn't disco, but this tightening up of War's sweet jamming vibe – almost given a sort of Mizell Brothers twist here, with a focus on sharper rhythms, but still plenty of space for instrumental flourishes over the top. Tracks are long and open, but in different ways than the early years – and there's some rhythmic elements on the record that really have the group trying out something new – and definitely finding a sweet spot in the process! The whole thing's great – and titles include the great extended instrumental "The Seven Tin Soldiers", plus "Hey Senorita", "Baby Face", "Galaxy", and "Sweet Fighting Lady". CD

RCA/Avenue, 1982. New Copy ... $8.99 9.99
A sweet snapping groove from War – a set that has the group picking up a bit more boogie in their bounce than before, but at a level that helps keep their funk fresh for a whole new generation! The album's a heck of a lot warmer and more live than most of their contemporaries – and while there's a bit less of the freer moments of their youth, there's still plenty of jazzy touches over the top – and that wonderful trademark blend of Latin elements, jazzy riffing, and captivating chorus vocals! Basslines take on a bit more role than before – but in a good way – and titles include "You Got The Power", "The Jungle", "Just Because", "Outlaw", "I'm About Somebody", and "Cinco De Mayo". CD

Blue Note/Avenue, 1977. New Copy ... $8.99 9.99
Sweet jazzy work from War – a record that has them stretching things out a bit from before, and finding new ways to groove for the second half of the 70s! All the core elements are still firmly in place – that sublime blend of jazz, soul, funk, and Latin elements – but there's a slight shift in the presentation, with maybe just a touch more of the jazz promised in the title – which might have to do with the album's initial placement as a Blue Note Records title! The first half of the record features all new material, showcasing this slight shift in the group's sound – and a mode that's nicely free of any hits – and the second half of the set brings back some key jazzy tracks from earlier records, which fit perfectly into place. Titles include "War Is Coming", "I Got You", "LA Sunshine", "Platinum Jazz", "Slowly We Walk Together", "River Niger", "H2Overture", "City Country City", "Four Cornered Room", and "Deliver The Word".

A heady brew of contemporary work from the global metal underground – all with the kind of supernatural tint you might expect from the title! The great package comes with a thoughtful booklet of notes, which not only details the music, but also ruminates on the history of images and ideas from the dark side! Titles include "Pyre Of The Harvest Queen" by Vampire, "Lucifer Sideburns" by Hank Ray, "Il Dio E Nato" by Estasy, "Science Of Darkness" by Blizaro, and "I'm The Wolfman" by Violation Wound.

Black SabbathParanoid ... LP
Warner, 1971. Very Good- Gatefold ... $16.99
Quite possibly the greatest moment of genius ever from Black Sabbath – and a genre-changing record that influenced generations! The group are at their lean, raw best here – free from any cliches at all, and working in an incredibly heady brew of fuzzy guitar, romping bass, and dark drums – all topped by the instantly recognizeable screech of the young Ozzy Osborne! Guitarist Tony Iommi virtually redefines rock use of the guitar with this record alone – and the Oz follows suit with some of the creepiest vocals set to record ever. Titles include the classics "Paranoid" and "Iron Man", plus "War Pigs", "Planet Caravan", "Electric Funeral", "Hand Of Doom", and "Rat Salad". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny CashKoncert V Praze (In Prague-Live) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Legacy, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
The Man In Black behind the Iron Curtain! The show was recorded live in Prague in 1978 – finding Johnny backed not only by his impeccable Tenessee Three, but it also features the chorus from The Johnny Cash Show – making it much more than a typical concert. The cultural gravity weighs strongly on the performances, without weighing the set down. A warmly charismatic concert from waning near end of the Cold War era. A great setlist of Cash classics, including "Ring Of Fire", "I Still Miss Someone", "Sunday Morning Coming Down", "I Walk The Line", "Casey Jones, "Hey Porter", "Wabash Cannonball", "City Of New Orleans", "I Still Miss Someone" and more.

Sure, the cover's a bit dated – but the politics have stayed surprisingly strong over the years – as has the music as well! Keep in mind that The Clash were waging war in the Mideast years before Desert Storm – in this searing mix of London punk, rocksteady roots, and slight new wave elements – delivered here with a surprising sense of self that really gave the whole thing a sense of wit – and more than enough legs to keep on going without collapsing under the passage of time! Titles include the hit "Should I Stay Or Should I Go", the classic "Rock The Casbah", and the tracks "Ghetto Defendant", "Car Jamming", "Know Your Rights", "Straight To Hell", and "Inoculated City".

DeclaimeSouthside Story ... CD
Someothaship/Vinyl Digital, 2015. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
A strong return to a more forceful rhyme style for Declaime – still with the funk-steeped beats and hazy mood that's more prominent in his recordings as Dudley Perkins – and it's nice to have him back in a straighter hip hop mode for a minute! It's strong stuff, and if you dug his Stones Throw recordings and haven't kept with his twists and turns over the years – which are well worth exploring by the way – here's an solid point to jump back in, or check him out for the first time if you're unitiated. Includes ""Surenos", "The Message 2014" feat Ms One, "Holly", "Samsara", "Fonkinhabitform", "Concentration" and "Flys Eye" feat Georgia Anne Muldrow, "No Mas Mayate", "War Sucks Like Hell", "GOAT" and God's Watch".

Sacha DistelSacha's Guitar ... CD
El (UK), Mid 50s. Used ... $6.99
A sweet selection of jazz guitar work by Sacha Disel from the mid-to-late 50s – breezy, understated and gently gripping material pulled from sides Distel cut with Lionel Hampton, Bobby Jasper, John Lewis and others! Sacha's Guitar is really a fine example of post war modern jazz at the time, with arrangements running from a stripped down after hours vibe, to more of a lightly swinging sound. It also finds Distelworking well with a fine roster of players, with the above mentioned heavy hitters plus Kenny Clarke, Bobby Wilen, George Duvivier, Rene Urtreger and more. Titles include "Olympia Orgy", "'Round About Midnight", "No 1 For Sacha", "All The Things You Are" with the Lionel Hampton Paris All Stars, "Minor Drops" and "I'll Rember You" with the Bobby Jasper All Stars, and "I Cover The Waterfront", "Dear Old Stockholm", "Afternoon In Paris", "Bag's Groove", "Willow Weep For Me" & "All The Things You Are" from the excellent Afternoon In Paris LP by the John Lewis-Sacha Distel Quintet.

Bob DylanBob Dylan Live In Concert – Brandeis University 1963 (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Columbia, 1963. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Early live Dylan at the Brandeis University folk festival of 1963 – tapes discovered at the home of late music writer Ralph Gleason – a treasure he managed to hide from the world for nearly a half century! The material is culled from 2 sets performed by Dylan at Brandeis on May 10, 1963 – seven songs and nearly 40 minutes all together – with young Dylan in fine form, sticking to his originals rather than simply reinterpreting the folk revival canon, as many of his peers would do in such a venue. "Honey, Just Allow Me", "Talkin' John Burch Paranoid Blues", "Masters Of War", "Talkin' World War III Blues", "Bob Dylan's Dream" and "Talkin' Bear Mountain Picnic Massacre Blues".

Trouble In Mind, 2014. New Copy ... $8.99
A spooky little cover, and a spooky sort of sound to match – a great variation on synth-heavy rock modes – with strong echoes both of the early 80s post-punk generation, and of some of the best horror soundtracks of the time! Alex Cuervo plays all the instrumentation himself – and although keyboards and fuzzy guitar do a lot of the work, there's also some stark rhythms that really strengthen the music too – almost early 80s German modes at times, in the way the drums have this sideways sort of splash – which deepens and darkens the overall vibe of the record. All tracks are instrumental – and titles include "The Obelisk", "This Is A War Universe", "The Feral Kids", "Removing The Bandages", "The Goddamn Apocalypse", and "The Cold Spot".

Quite a popular live album from Ella – recorded in Berlin at the height of the cold war years – featuring a famous recording of "Mack The Knife" that almost blew away Bobby Darin's hit with the cut! The album's nicely free of some of the stodginess of some of Ella's Songbook albums from the same time – with light and jazzy backing by a group that includes Jim Hall, Paul Smith, Wilfred Middlebrooks, and Gus Johnson. Titles include "Mack The Knife", "How High The Moon", "Too Darn Hot", "Gone With The Wind", "Misty", and "Summertime". LP, Vinyl record album

Frankie Goes To HollywoodWelcome To the Pleasuredome ... LP
ZTT/Island, 1984. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $2.99
Arguably one of the greatest concept albums of the 80s – and the only really strong full length album cut by Frankie Goes To Hollywood! At the time of the set, the group was riding high on the success and controversy of their singles "Relax" and "Two Tribes" – but in the ambitious ZTT mode, sought to expand their sound way past familiar hits, and into a realm of sonic exploration that rivaled that of labelmates Art Of Noise. Don't get us wrong, because the Frankie of this album is still very much in groove-oriented territory – but they also let Horn take over with some more striking tunes that are both longer and shorter than the usual pop track – offsetting the vocal numbers on the record with a rich tapestry of musical backdrops that also more firmly forward the group's social and sexual leanings. The album features surprising covers of "War", "Do You Know The Way To San Jose", and "Born To Run" – plus the hits "Relax" and "Two Tribes", and the original numbers "Welcome To the Pleasure Dome", "Krisco Kisses", "The Ballad Of 32", "Wish The Lads Were Here", "Black Night White Light", "The Only Star In Heaven", "The Power Of Love", and "Bang".

The group are still totally at the top of their game here – stepping out with a deep, soulful Indy-bred blend of jazz and funk – a groove that was easily one of the hippest going in the early 70s Prestige Records scene – and that's saying a lot, given the company the label was keeping at the time! The record's got one track that features some nice soulful vocals – the political cut "Let's Make Peace & Stop The War" – but the best cuts are the instrumentals, grooving along hard in the band's best modal funky tradition!

Prestige, 1971/1972. Used ... $7.99
The first 2 albums by Funk Inc – brought together in a massive fest of funky organ/guitar jazz jams! First up is the legendary Funk Inc album from 1971 – a killer instrumental set of hard organ grooves and funky basslines! This was the album that broke Funk Inc out of their Indianapolis scene, and made them a force to be forever reckoned with in the history of funky jazz. The album grooves hard in the same sound as some of the classic work by Prestige jazz funk giants like Rusty Bryant, Charles Earland, or Ivan Boogaloo Jones – but it's almost even tighter than their work, because the Funk Inc combo as a tightly woven group of players who'd been together for a number of years. The record's filled with monster cuts that you'll recognize immediately, like the group's famous "Kool is Back", which has a monster sample on the intro, and hard heavy Kool & The Gang grooves throughout. Other tracks include "Sister Janie", "The Whipper", and "Bowlegs". Next up is Chicken Lickin – funky organ, hard tenor sax, and plenty of choppy guitar make this another jazz funk gem in the crown of the legendary Funk Inc!

Gap BandGap Band (1979)/Gap Band II/Gap Band III ... CD
Mercury/BGO (UK), 1979/1980. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
Massive music in a wonderful package – three funky classics from The Gap Band! First up is the group's self-titled album from 1979 – the start of the legendary second chapter for the Gap Band – the point when the group had reemerged as the tight funky trio of the Wilson Brothers, with a groove that would really set them up nicely for the 80s! This first album in the new format has a wonderfully tight feel – still plenty of sharp edges that echo their earlier groove, but a leaner quality too – one that's got the bass and drums snapping together wonderfully, really setting the tone for the heaviest grooves. There's also a few mellower cuts too – which really sound great, and give the record the same sort of balance you might hear on work by Heaven & Earth at the time. War's Lonnie Simmons produced – and held the cash bag all the way to the bank! Titles include "I'm In Love", "Got To Get Away", "Messin With My Mind", "Shake", "Baby Baba Boogie", "Open Your Mind Wide", and "I Can Sing". Gap Band II features mean, lean grooves from The Gap Band – a legendary batch of mainstream funk from the end of the 70s – and a record that really has the trio working at the top of their game! There's a wonderful balance here between funky numbers and mellow ones – the latter of which really help pace the record nicely, giving it a depth that takes the group way beyond the cliches of some of their contemporaries, and firmly establishing the Gap Band as one to watch for the 80s! Titles include the massive "I Don't Believe You Want To Get Up & Dance" – with its classic "Oops Upside Your Head" refrain – plus "Who Do You Call", "No Hiding Place", "Steppin Out", "You Are My High", and "Party Lights". Gap Band III is sagreat one from the Gap Band – funky gems and sinister groovers – the best of both worlds for the group! Tunes like "Burn Rubber On Me (When You Want To Hurt Me)" and "Humpin" packed 80s dance floors for good reason, and put the band in steady rotation, while numbers like "Yearning For Your Love" showed the band could drop the tempo, stretch out a bit, and deliver the mighty mellow. This one's certainly at the top of the heap of 80s groovers, as far as we're concerned – a record that really took the Gap Band over the top! Other tracks include "Nothin' Comes To The Sleepers", "Are You Living", "The Way", "Gash Gash Gash" and more. CD

The album's still hip hop at the core – with guest appearances from Pharoahe Monch, Nems, Kool G Rap, AZ, and others – but The Revelations also sing a bit too, bringing in a killer harmony approach that's often echoes by the instrumentation, which includes guitar from Wes Mingus and keyboards from Angela Johnson, who also sings a bit of backup as well. The whole thing's a stunning meeting of minds – almost 70s New Jersey soul filtered through 90s New York hip hop – and even the booklet is a collective effort, with comics from David Lapham and others.

Ghostface Killah & Adrian YoungeTwelve Reasons To Die ... LP
Linear Labs, 2013. New Copy ... $18.99 20.98
Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge team up for this most intriguing artist and producer/composer collaboration – one with a promising concept and they deliver in full – shadowboxing their way to a knockout! On the mic tip, Ghostface is in his comfort zone – spitting lyrics laced with martial arts, mafia and supernatural imagery – and doing so with a furious flow and peak precision. Adrian Younge and his Venice Dawn group lay down the sounds – with dusty soul and funk, naturally – but what really pushes this one to a superior level are the unpredictable and ingenious nods to 70s Italian film scores, particularly in the giallo genre. Spooky, echoey keyboards and occasional angelic female backing vocals elevate the vibe and balance the grit. 12 tracks and no filler: "Beware The Stare", "Rise Of The Black Suits", "I Declare War" with Masta Killa, "Blood On The Cobblestones" with U-God & Inspectah Deck, "Rise Of The Ghostface Killah", "Murder Spree" with U-God, Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck and Killa Sin, "Enemies Around Me" with William Hart of the Delfonics, "The Sure Shot (Parts 1 And 2)", "Twelve Reasons To Die" and more.

Lightnin HopkinsLightnin Strikes (Vee Jay) ... LP
Vee Jay, 1962. Near Mint- (reissue)... $11.99
Prime Vee Jay blues from the mighty Lightnin Hopkins – a real back-to-basics session that features more acoustic guitar than electric, in a style that's quite spare and down-home – a real difference from most of the other work of this type on the label! Often, Hopkins is singing along with just his guitar for backing – and the recording approach has an oddly echoey quality that amplifies the dark corners nicely. Electric numbers include "War Is Starting Again" and "Got Me A Louisiana Woman" – and other tracks include "Please Don't Quit Me", "Want To Come Home", "Rolling & Rolling", "Heavy Snow", "Coon Is Hard To Catch", and "Walkin Round In Circles".

Son House/JD ShortDelta Blues ... LP
Folkways, 1942/1962. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Two generations of blues – presented together here in a classic Folkways package! Side one features Alan Lomax recordings of Son House – done on a trip to the delta in 1942, after Lomax was able to talk Son's boss into giving him the afternoon off, so they could drive to a grocery store where they could plug in the tape recorder! House sounds great here – a few years after classic vintage, but still very much in fine form – and titles include "My Black Woman", "Sun Goin Down", "I Ain't Goin To Cry No More", and "This War Will Last You For Years". Side two features work from JD Short – a contemporary of Son House on the Paramount Records scene – but recorded here in 1962 by Samuel Charters, in a laidback, stripped-down style that's very much in the older mode used by Lomax, but slightly more clear. Short lays down some great harmonica lines alongside his vocals and guitar – and titles include "So Much Wine", "Train Bring My Baby Back", "Fighting For Dear Old Uncle Sam", and "You Been Cheatin Me".

✨✧ Ahmad JamalAhmad Jamal '73 ... LP
20th Century, 1973. Very Good ... $16.99
Amazing stuff from Ahmad Jamal – one of his greatest albums ever, and the kind of Fender Rhodes classic that got passed over in the history books, but which is finally getting some appreciation these days! Ahamad's in a very different mode than his Cadet/Argo years – using the mellow keys of the Fender Rhodes to craft some killer tunes with a laidback edge. Richard Evans did the arrangements, and the sound is very deep and soulful on most of the album. Includes a sublime sample version of War's "World Is A Ghetto" , plus "Superstition", "Children Of The Night", and "Soul Girl". LP, Vinyl record album
