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".

Eric Burdon & WarEric Burdon Declares War ... CD
MGM/Rhino, 1970. Used ... $5.99
War became so popular on their own in later years that it's easy to forget how they first sprung onto the soul charts – here, in an album of many styles that was put together by the wayward Eric Burdon after the dissolution of The Animals. We have to admit that Burdon was a genius to hook onto the rich talents of this LA combo – even though he really didn't know what to do with them on this record. Part of the album's an homage to Roland Kirk, part is an extended reworking of "Tobacco Road", and part is an overly-long bluesy passage called "Blues For Memphis Slim". Fortunately, the record also includes the monster groover "Spill The Wine", one of the first big crossover tracks to popularize the Chicano funk sound of LA – and a great little groover that still hooks us in today.

Raheem DeVaughnLove & War Masterpeace ... CD
Jive, 2010. Used ... $1.99
Maybe the greatest set so far from Raheem DeVaughn – an artist we loved way back in his early mixtape days, and one who's grown tremendously in recent years! The set's filled with wisdom and knowledge – and comes across with this deeply soulful feel that's rooted in the righteous era of Curtis Mayfield and Gil Scott-Heron, but which also bumps along with plenty of contemporary touches too – thanks to some sweet production help from Kenny Dope on some of the album's best cuts! The mix of Kenny and Raheem is a dream come true – and Cornel West drops in a few spoken bits to round out the album's sense of purpose too – alongside other guests who include Jill Scott, Bilal, Malik Yusef, Wale, and Ludacris. Cuts include "Bedroom", "My Wife", "Bulletproof", "Nobody Wins A War", "Fragile", "Mr Right", "I Don't Care", and "Black & Blue". CD

Lyrical combat from Baltimore duo Dirt Platoon – with gritty production by producer Kyo Itachi! The vocals are raw and uncompromising and Itachi wisely lays down hard-hitting beats and spare bits of piano strings and other fairly delicate textures –which are fine foil for the lyrical grit. Includes "Animal S**t", "Dirty Work" with Ruste Juxx, "Old Time Sake", "Brainstorming", "Point Of Attack" with Dro Pesci, Skanks, Shabaam Sahdeeq and Milez Grimez, "Wage War", "Dose Of Reality", "The Closer" and more.

Billy PaulWar Of The Gods (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $14.99
A stone treasure from one of the greatest soul singers of the 70s – and a set you'll regularly find in the coolest of record collections from back in the day! Billy Paul was always one of the hippest talents on Philly International – mixing together soul and jazz influences with a deeper sense of spirituality, and long experience as a sophisticated vocalist. This album's one of his most sublime efforts – kind of a quasi-spiritual record with a similar high-concept approach to some of Marvin Gaye's work from the same time – really righteous, in ways that the Philly label didn't always hit – and which really goes past even most of Billy's already hip previous efforts. Gamble and Huff produced and wrote most of the record – including the two long tracks that make up side one, "I See The Light" and "War Of The Gods", the latter of which starts out slow and moody, then breaks out into a club groove. Other titles include the more standard soul tune "The Whole Town's Talking", plus "Thanks For Saving My Life" and "Peace Holy Peace". CD features bonus tracks – "War Of The Gods (part 1)", "The Whole Town's Talking (single)", and "I Was Married (single)". CD

Spoils Of WarSpoils Of War (180 gram pressing – with bonus 7" single) ... LP
Wah Wah (Spain), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $39.99
Totally amazing sounds from this obscure Illinois group – a very experimental outfit formed at University of Illinois, and named after an instrument by Harry Partch! With Partch as a touchstone, these guys definitely have one ear cocked towards some of the more experimental sounds of the period – including the groovier composers who were mixing lots of electronics into their music – but they also come across with a tighter, more compact approach that's got plenty of psych as well – often on these long instrumental passages that feature great workouts on guitar and keyboards. The group often uses live sound manipulation to really alter more familiar styles – and there's elements to the record that are light years ahead of most other combos of the time – especially in the Midwest! Titles include "Dear Belgium Boy", "Astor", "Bomb Song", "Victoria Falls", "For Helene", "E Thing", "Walk In Walk Out", and "Morning Be Merciful". Great 2LP reissue includes bonus 7" single, and insert too! LP, Vinyl record album

War/Curtis Mayfield/Kool & The GangFirst Annual Benefit Concert For The Congressional Black Caucus ... CD
Chess (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
A killer moment in 70s soul – but kind of a lost gem, too – given that the album was issued by Chess Records, but features a number of big names who mostly recorded for other companies! The live performance was recorded at the first annual benefit for the Black Congressional Caucus – and the tunes have the right sort of righteous energy to match the important political event – really special performances that include a searing 9 minute version of "Wild & Peaceful" by Kool & The Gang, super-heavy versions of "Give Me Your Love" by Curtis Mayfield and the Mayfield-penned "On & On" by Gladys Knight & The Pips. War follows up with a smoking Hammond-heavy take on "Gypsy Man" – and even Jimmy Witherspoon sounds pretty darn great on a take of his classic "Goin Down Slow". CD

Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 5CD &DVD ... $171.99 203.98
The Atomic Age in all its musical glory – served up here in a wonderful package of music, warnings, and more! The whole thing's one of the coolest "atomic-themed" collections we've ever seen – as it not only features over 100 vintage songs about the rise of the atomic bomb, and all the requisite worries it produced – it also includes two dozen public service announcements, and a bonus DVD with classic civil defense and anti-Communist films from the 50s! The set also features two full spoken word records, too – both on CD – If The Bomb Falls and The Complacent Americans – surprisingly relevant stuff in a post-9/11 generation. And as usual with Bear Family, the overall package is stunning – a great box, overstuffed CDs, and a 292 page hardcover book – full color, filled with graphics and photos from one of the most panicked times in US history!

Dust To Digital, Late 30s. New Copy ... $36.99
Amazing sounds and really gorgeous images – maybe one of the best book and CD combinations we've seen so far from the always-great Dust-To-Digital label! The volume features nearly four dozen vintage 78rpm recordings – all from the pre-WWII years, in a range of southern styles that includes string band music, gospel, blues, and a bit of early hillbilly – all brought back to light with wonderful fidelity, and presented in a book-style volume that also offers up 159 photographs from the time! Together, the music and pictures evoke a south that's been lost for years – and which hardly ever got more exposure during the time, especially as so many of these scenes were dying during the Depression. Artists include Mississippi Bracey, Roane County Ramblers, Georgia Yellow Hammers, Al Hopkins & His Buckle Busters, Narmour & Smith, Rev JC Burnett, Loveless Twins, Fiddlin Sam Long Of The Ozarks, and many others.

✨✧ Pharoahe MonchPTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) ... LP
WAR, 2014. New Copy 2 LPs ... Out Of Stock
Master MC Pharoahe Monch returns! Post Traumatic Stress Disorder appeared just few short years since his previous full length effort, which is a huge boon for we fans of rhyme centric rap. It's damn good to have this cat in the game. PTSD has a fairly loose dystopian sci fi theme/story that's a sometimes metaphorical, some times explicitly laid out struggle for truth and honestly in crooked music business and difficult world in general – like the best kinda/sorta concept albums, the story doesn't get overbearing at any point, and Pharaohe's pen remains as sharp as ever, and his flow as excellent as ever. This one doesn't have the manic, bugged out energy of Internal Affairs, but that's not a knock – we take the more measured, smartly paced approach as a sign of maturity, and an eagarness to avoid repeating himself. Good stuff! Includes "The Recollection Facility", "Losing My Mind", "Heroin Addict", "Damage", "Bad MF", "Rapid Eye Movement" with Black Thought, "Broken Again", "Post Traumatic Stress Disorder", "DREAM" with Talib Kwelie, "Scream", "Eht Dn Arg Noisulli" with Stepkids and more.

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.

Burning SpearMan In The Hills/Dry & Heavy ... CD
Island (Japan), 1976/1977. New Copy ... $13.99
Nice 2-fer CD that collects 2 great Burning Spear records, cut as he began his career away from Studio One. Dry & Heavy was the first full-length self-produced LP from Winston Rodney, and finds him returning to the solo vocal format, unlike the previous harmony trio setting he'd been working in around the time of the recording. Continuing with the same powerful roots message he laid down on his classic preceding LPs (Marcus Garvey, Social Living & Man In the Hills), and backed up by some mighty rhythms, this is some serious stuff. "Throw Down Your Arms" was the most standout track, but we like "Any River", "Black Disciples" & "It's a Long Way Around" are great, too. Man In The Hills was originally the follow up to the crucial Marcus Garvey set, and the second collaboration between Burning Spear and producer Jack Ruby. While the earlier Studio One sides are truly great, the work of the group (still a harmony vocal trio) at this point took the next step to classic status. Essential stuff, including the mighty title track, plus "No More War", "People Get Ready", "Groovy" & "Black Soul". 19 tracks in all. CD

Jimmy CastorIt's Just Begun/Phase Two ... CD
RCA/Robinsongs (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
A pair of classics from the Jimmy Castor Bunch – back to back on a single CD! It's Just Begun is wickedly fuzzy funk! Jimmy Castor recorded in a lot of different styles during the 70s – but the one he used on this album is still his best! The record's a non-stop guitar-heavy batch of classic funk tracks – and it features the storming break track "It's Just Begun", the funky goofy "Troglodyte", and plenty other nice moments like "Bad", "LTD", "I Promise To Remember", and "Psychee". Fuzzy guitar meets heavy drums meets some of the most insane lyrics ever on a mainstream funk album! One of our most requested records – and for good reason! Phase Two is probably Jimmy's second best album of the 70s – one with many of the same elements as his legendary It's Just Begun record! The band is grooving hard – with plenty of heavy conga, fuzzed out guitar, and trippy grooves that serve as a perfect foil for Jimmy's super-dope sense of humor. The record features a remake of Jimmy's earlier "Hey Leroy", still done with a Latiny groove, but also with many elements of "It's Just Begun" thrown into the funky mix. The album also features Jimmy's guitar-heavy "Tribute To Jim [Hendrix]", and "Luther The Anthropoid", which was a follow-up to "Troglodyte", with similar stoner caveman lyrics! Another tasty cut is "Party Life", a 7 minute Latin funk number with a very War-like groove! CD

A seminal session from one of the greatest large groups ever! This one captures the Clarke-Boland ensemble at the peak of their creativity – swinging hard in that tight firey way that was virtually their trademark during the late 60s. The players are a top-shelf mix of European and American jazz legends – coming together without ego, without attitude, and having a hell of a time working through groundbreaking arrangements from leader Francy Boland. Soloists include Sahib Shihab, Tony Coe, Dusko Goykovich, Ronnie Scott, Jimmy Woode, and Benny Bailey – and the tracks are all short, but swing like a mofo, with plenty of solo action in the mix. Titles include "Love For Sale", "November Girl", "All Through The Night", "Lullaby Of The Leaves", and "Bei Dir War Es Immer So Schon". CD

Shanachie, 2009. Used ... $6.99
Karl Denson's come a long way here since his earlier funk sides from years back – and for the record, his tiny universe gets expanded nicely by the addition of Meshell Ndegeocello on bass! The groove here is rich and full – almost a late 60s funky soul approach – but harder than we're used to hearing from Denson, with some especially nice drums at the bottom, which keep things quite raw, even when the songs are slightly sweetened up – and Meshell's basslines are definitely a great component of the set, as most tunes bump along with a groove that's strongly directed up from the bottom! Lead vocals are by Denson, who also plays sax and flute – and titles include "Shake It Out", "Where It Counts", "Brother's Keeper (parts 1 & 2)", "Monica", "Expressions", "Empty Soul", "Just Got Paid", "Take It Down", "Mighty Rebel", and "The Drums Of War".

A key year in the music of Donovan – served up here in massive amount of tracks that capture the singer right before his great leap to fame! The Donovan here is firmly wed to the sound and style of Bob Dylan – as chronicled famously in the film Don't Look Back – but that's hardly an issue at all, as the singer is still completely stunning, both as a lyricist and singer – often working with just a bit of acoustic guitar for accompaniment. And while some of the important songs from these early Donovan years have gotten exposure over the years, it's really amazing to hear all the work together – and to realize that, even without topping the charts, Donovan managed to record 34 tracks during this one early year – a year that also has him really transforming his style by the end! Titles include two versions of "Catch The Wind" – one with strings – plus "To Sing For You", "Colours", "Universal Soldier", "Ballad Of A Crystal Man", "Circus Of Sour", "Summer Day Reflection Song", "Candy Man", "Belated Forgiveness Plea", "Ballad Of Geraldine", "Turquoise", "Sunny Goodge Street", and "The War Drags On".

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". CD

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! Titles include "The Better Half", "Jung Bungo", and "Running Away". LP, Vinyl record album

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". CD

A really stunning set from Ghostface Killah – a record that has the Wu-Tang legend teaming up with soul group The Revelations – who produce the set, participate, and bring in a really wonderful old school vibe! 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. Titles include "Here I Go Again", "Dogs Of War", "The Battlefield", "Call My Name", "Pieces To The Puzzle", and a sweet cover of "Thin Line Between Love & Hate". CD

✨✧ Ghostface Killah36 Seasons (with poster) ... LP
Tommy Boy/Salvation, 2014. New Copy ... $21.99
A really stunning set from Ghostface Killah – a record that has the Wu-Tang legend teaming up with soul group The Revelations – who produce the set, participate, and bring in a really wonderful old school vibe! 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. Titles include "Here I Go Again", "Dogs Of War", "The Battlefield", "Call My Name", "Pieces To The Puzzle", and a sweet cover of "Thin Line Between Love & Hate". LP, Vinyl record album

Guitar Slim Green with Johnny & Shuggie OtisStone Down Blues (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Kent/BGP (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $11.99
A blues album, but one with a difference – thanks to some tremendous help from the legendary Johnny Otis and his young son Shuggie! Despite the fact that the leader is billed as Guitar Slim Green, Shuggie actually plays some lead guitar on the record too – adding in some cool, complicated solos that point towards his genius to come as a solo act – and which also get some nicely romping rhythms from Johnny on drums! The Otis family was definitely bringing a lot of funk into their sound at the time, which they share plenty with Slim here – helping to make the record way more than just another late 60s rootsy blues session, and instead a great west coast criss-crossing of modes. Titles include "Shake Em Up", "My Little Angel Child", "5th Street Alley Boogie", "Old Folks Blues", "This War Ain't Right", and "Big Fine Thing". Also features two bonus tracks, both unissued – "My Marie" and "Rock The Nation". CD
