WarYoungblood ... LP
United Artists, 1978. Very Good+ ... $5.99
War did the music for this funky soundtrack to an early Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs film, and although most of the stuff on here is just typical War stuff, there's one track called "Flying Machine" that's a long funky chase scene-type track that's worth the price of the album alone! Other tracks include "The Kingsmen Sign", "Junk Yard", "Superdude", and "Youngblood". One of the best War LPs! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ War & Eric BurdonEric Burdon Declares War ... LP
MGM, 1970. Very Good ... $8.99
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.

✨✧ WarGalaxy ... LP
MCA, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ WarWorld Is A Ghetto ... CD
United Artists/Rhino, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A monster from start to finish – not only the greatest album from War, but maybe one of the greatest mainstream funk albums of all time! The set's got a really unique groove – one that so many others tried to copy, but which was forged here first – in a wicked LA blend of Chicano funk, heavy organ lines, and soulful singing that sews the whole thing together perfectly. Just about every cut is upbeat and funky – rolling along at that low-rider pace that was War's lasting contribution to funk music – and the album features the huge hits "World Is A Ghetto" and "Cisco Kid", two of the brightest spots on radio funk from the 70s – plus classics like "Four Cornered Room", "City Country City", "Where Was You At", and "Beetles In The Bog".

United Artists/Avenue, 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

Wah Wah (Spain), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

RCA/Avenue, 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Black Pearl (Germany), 1979. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $18.99
There's a fantastic funky bassline on "Hi Baby Out" – a groove that's popped, but in a really offbeat way – and used to set fire to the equally-strange sing-songy lyrics of the tune! Meanwhile, lots of instruments take solos – including a sweet riffing guitar, and a nicely echoey tenor! "War" is an original by the group, and has an equally tight rhythm – riffing guitar under organ lines, all set to a sound that's almost Caribbean funk! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Motown, 2008. New Copy ... $4.99 15.98
Badu is back with some of the deepest, funkiest and best music of her career – a mindblowing treatise for a New Amerykah – and what we'll consider an instant classic whether the world at large catches on or not! Erykah steps up this time with a set that balances the wilder impulses of her criminally underappreciated Worldwide Underground and more of a hip hop based, righteously grooving style – but still bursts with a freshness that's unrivaled to say the least. From free spirited soul, to sparse hip hop funk this record is both blunt and beautiful – with a slow-building emotional resonance that'll reach the most jaded souls. Modern soul music of the first order that gives us goosebumps from the first spin to the last beat! The album kicks off with Erykah riffing on and remixing Ramp's "American Promise" as an intro – and it just gets deeper from there. Producers/collaborators include Madlib, Sa-Ra, Karriem Riggins, James Poyser and ?uestlove. Amazing!!! Titles include "The Healer", "Me", "My People", "Soldier", "The Cell", "Twinkle", "Master Teacher", "The Hump" and "Telephone". The 9th Wonder produced single "Honey" is an unlisted bonus track. CD

✨✧ VariousSoldier's Sad Story – Vietnam Through The Eyes Of Black America 1966 to 1973 ... CD
Kent/Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really great little set – with a very unique take on soul music! As the title indicates, the package documents the African-American response to the Vietnam War that emerged in soul singles during the late 60s and early 70s. The feel here is quite different than the raw, ragged protest of American rock at the time – and has a more helpless, disenfranchised feel that really gets at the true spirit of what most of America was going through in dealing with the war. The range of material is really great – and includes soul from the south, Chicago, LA, New York, and Philly – with a number of tunes that you may know, but have never identified strongly as anti-war, plus other great ones that you've most likely not heard! Titles include "While I'm Away" by Eddy G Giles, "POW MIA" by The Whispers, "Mail Call Time" by Mel & Tim, "Let's Face Facts" by James Carr, "Going To Viet Nam" by Big Amos, "Lonely Soldier" by Mike Williams, "He'll Be Back" by The Players, "Greetings" by The Monitors, "Christmas In Vietnam" by Johnny & Jon, "There's Someone Waiting Back Home" by The O'Jays, and "I Can't Write Left Handed" by Bill Withers.

✨✧ VariousSurefire Hits On Central Avenue – The South Central R&B Scene ... CD
Ace (UK), 1940s/1950s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic overview of the LA scene at the end of the 40s and into the 50s – seminal R&B work that made the city one of the greatest sources of music at the time! Before WWII, LA's recorded output was nothing much to speak of – but after the end of the war, the city really exploded as a host of small labels brought the rest of the nation work by the rich array of jazz, soul, and blues talents in the scene that had slowly been building with wartime migration from points south. The LA approach was a lot more sophisticated than that of other scenes – as audiences from previous down-home locales sought a hipper, cooler style to emphasize their new mode of living in the bigger city. Every track on here's a classic – and although you may have heard a few before, we've never seen an overview like this done so well! Titles include "Get Out Of The Car" by Richard Berry, "The Honeydripper" by Joe Liggins, "You Won't Let Me Go" by Johnny Moore, "Once There Lived A Fool" by Jimmy Grissom, "Decon's Hop" by Big Jay McNeely, "Ookey Ook" by The Penguins, "Heaven & Paradise" by Don Julian & The Meadowlarks, "Mary Lou" by Young Jessie, "Three Hours Past Midnight" by Johnny Guitar Watson, and "Pachuko Hop" by Chuck Higgins. 26 tracks in all!

Ars NovaArs Nova (1968) ... LP
Elektra, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $6.99
A wonderful little set of post-folk rock – with lots of lovely baroque touches! Ars Nova were really a one-off group – known for only this rare gem, issued on Elektra in 1968 – but with a sound that perfectly summed up a generation! There's a wonderful LA late 60s sound here – somewhere between Love and The Byrds, with the baroque touches of the former and the best country influences of the latter – all wrapped up in earnest, honest songwriting that makes even the ambitious moments come across with surprising charm. A true lost relic, and the kind of record that should be in any late 60s cannon! Titles include "Album In Your Mind", "Pavan For My Lady", "General Clover Ends A War", "And How Am I To Know", "Fields Of People", "Automatic Love", and "Song To The City". LP, Vinyl record album

Banks & Steelz (RZA & Paul Banks)Anything But Words ... LP
Warner, 2016. New Copy 2 LPs ... $14.99 21.98
Wu Tang mastermind and all around modern renaissance man RZA teams up with Interpol vocalist Paul Banks...and it works. Wow! Considering the pros and cons of the contemporary musical landscape, one of the major pros is the cross-pollinating possibilities of what would've seemed crazy in the past. Still, the inspiration that might make a solid single happen with disparate figures rarely extends to an album – which is what makes Banks & Steelz such a leftfield win. RZA rhyming over hip hop/synth pop hybrid production and sharing vocals and production duties with Banks – with guest appearances by fellow Wu vets Meth, Ghost and Masta Killa, plus Kool Keith and Florence Welch. Includes "Giant", "Ana Electronic", "Sword In The Stone" feat Kool Keith, "Wild Season" woth Florence Welch, "Conceal", "Love And War" with Ghostface, "Can't Hardly Feel", "One By One", "Gonna Make It" and "Point Of View" with Method Man & Masta Killa.

Barbara & The BrownsCan't Find Happiness – The Sounds Of Memphis Recordings ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
The first-ever full length collection of work by Memphis singer Barbara Brown – a vocalist who appeared both as a solo act, and with her sisters – on a variety of singles for labels like Cadet, Atlantic, Tower, and MGM in the late 60s and early 70s! Barbara's got a deep, rich voice that's clearly schooled in gospel, but pointed towards more secular ends – an approach that's very much in keeping with the best late 60s wave of soul from Atlantic Records, and which is carried off here with a sharpness and precision that's simply mindblowing! Why Brown never scored bigger is a real mystery to us, because these tunes come off like the cream of the crop of southern soul at the end of the 60s – not just obscurities for obscurity sake, but some of the highest level of soul a female soul singer could hope for at the time! The 20 track package features great notes on Brown's career, and on the tunes – a decent portion of which are previously unissued, too. Titles include "Man Around The House", "Can't Find No Happiness", "Pity A Fool", "Big Party", "Watch Dog", "You Don't Love Me", "Plenty Of Room", "I'm Gonna Start A War", "Things Have Gone To Pieces", "Great Big Thing", "Play Thing", and "If I Can't Run To You I'll Crawl".

Bobby Bare with Skeeter Davis, Liz Anderson, & NorTunes For Two/The Game Of Triangles/Your Husband My Wife (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Morello (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99
A trio of albums that pair RCA country star Bobby Bare with some of the label's female singers – all brought together with bonus tracks too! Tunes For Two is one of the magical pairings of Bobby Bare and Skeeter Davis – both rising stars in the RCA country lineup of the 60s – each with their own sort of special sound! Skeeter's got a heartbreaking mode that's kind of post-Patsy Cline – perfect for the slower, blue-tinged tracks on the set – and a nice contrast with the more natural approach of Bobby – who's always got his emotions handy, but also often with a wry eye that lets him put things in perspective. The pair duet directly on most numbers – instead of singing back and forth – and titles include "In The Misty Moonlight", "Dear John Letter", "Too Used To Being With You", "True Love", "Let It Be Me", and "We Must Have Been Out Of Our Minds". Game Of Triangles is a compelling take on the country duo mode of the 60s – an album that features some tracks that have all three singers working together – beautiful "love triangle" numbers – then more tracks that feature each singer on their own! The triangle numbers are especially compelling – and include "One Among The Three Of Us", "Bye Bye Love", "Three Mixed Up Hearts", "Which One Is To Blame", and "The Game Of Triangles" – a really fresh version of country heartbreak modes. Other cuts are nice, too – and include Bobby Bare singing "Homesick" and "Guess I'll Move On Down The Line", Liz Anderson singing "The Wife Of The Party" and "Fairytale", and Norma Jean singing "Pursuing Happiness" and "Don't Let That Doorknob Hit You". Last up is Your Husband My Wife – a set that has the duo of Bare and Davis really maturing nicely – hitting modes that are a lot more country than some of Skeeter's early pop material, with beautiful back/forth vocals that open up the well-penned tunes of heartbreak and the struggles of love to survive. Titles include "Before The Sunrise", "Let's Make Love Not War", "There Never Was A Time", "A Truer Love You'll Never Find", and the great "Your Husband My Wife". CD features three more bonus tracks – "Vegas" by Bare with Jeannie Bare, "No Memories Hangin Round" by Bare with Rosanne Cash, and "It's A Dirty Job" by Bare with Lacy J Dalton. CD

Earlier funk from The Bar-Kays – recorded back in the earlier part of the 70s when the group were recording for Stax, but issued here to cash in on the group's later fame on Mercury! The sound here is surprisingly like the group's later work – still in the heavy funk mode of their Stax years, but a bit smoother overall – with a definitely pronounced bass part on "Holy Ghost". "Monster" is a slower number – one that steps along in a nice groove that almost feels like it was lifted from one of the funkier albums by War! Both tracks in expanded disco mixes too! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Warren BernardCartoons For Victory (hardcover) ... Book
Fantagraphics, 2015. New Copy ... $10.99 34.99
A fantastic collection of World War II-era comic material – including lots of rare work by some of the biggest comic names of the time! Comic art really came into its own as America was entering WWII – the newspaper medium had hit an all-time high, with some of the best art of the century – and the new comic book format was exploding, and would find a huge audience in GIs stationed overseas. Those intertwined fates made for some amazing moments on paper – as comics rallied the forces back home, through well-spirited stories, and characters designed to provide a strong example of America's full potential – a huge propaganda push that not only included obvious folks, like Superman and Captain America – but also Nancy, Little Orphan Annie, and Donald Duck – all of whom had something to say about the war. Yet this book doesn't just stop with comic stories – as it pulls together comic material from advertisements, posters, and other propaganda fronts – with rare work from folks like Milton Caniff, Will Esiner, Al Capp, and other key talents of the time. The book is beautiful – sometimes in two-tone color, sometimes full color – wonderfully laid out, and with lots of supporting text. The hardcover volume is nice and big – almost bigger than the usual art book – and is 254 pages. Book

Nems/Warner, 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99 31.99
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 recognizable 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". Features a full album of bonus tracks too – including instrumentals of "War Pigs", "Iron Man", "Electric Funeral", "Hand Of Doom", and "Fairies Wear Boots" – and alternate lyrics versions of "Paranoid" and "Planet Caravan".

Sylvester Cotton/Andrew DurhamBlues Sensation – Detroit Downhome Recordings 1948/1949 ... CD
Ace (UK), 1948/1949. Used ... $4.99
Raw sounds you'd never expect from Detroit – postwar blues by two overlooked artists, presented here with a fair bit of unissued tracks as well! Sylvester Cotton's got a sound that's much more southern than you'd guess – raw, stripped down performances that bring together hard-ringing lines on acoustic guitar with very plaintive vocals – much more a Texas style than a midwestern one, and a good indication of all the southern influences that were hitting the motor city in the years after the war. Cotton's music takes up 19 of the 25 tracks on the set – and titles include "Single Man's Blues", "Brown Skin Woman", "Three Cent Stamp Blues", "When I'm Gone", "Ugly Woman Blues", "I Tried", and "Stranger In Your Own Town Blues". Andrew Dunham follows with six more tracks – really mindblowing in the way he uses spare electric lines with the kind of formation you'd expect to here more from a country blues acoustic guitar – sometimes with such force it feels like the strings are going to rasp right off the frets, while his own vocals seem to work equally hard to blow out the microphone. Titles include "She Don't Walk", "Rocky Mountain", "Corinne", "I Found Out", and two takes of "Little Bitty Woman". CD

Guido & Maurizio De AngelisRoma Violenta ... LP
Sub Ost (Italy), 1975. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
One of the greatest Italian crime soundtracks of all time – a totally groovy little record that's done in a style that's quite different than American crime scores of the time, but still completely wonderful! Most of the instrumentation here is relatively spare – almost a small combo funk approach to scoring for a cop film, but done with the penchant for isolated focus on a key instrument that makes Italian soundtracks so great. There's no full horns nor funky orchestrations – and in their place are stepping bass bits, lightly dancing keyboards, and plenty of guitar parts – some jamming, some nicely spacey with a really eerie feel! The sound is great – never as cheesy as other Italian work from the mid to late 70s – and there's a grittier feel here than you'd expect, one that really keeps things interesting. 2LP version has a total of 23 tracks that include "The Reason Of A Just War", "The Punitive Justice", "The Other Face", "Undercover Investigation", "Gangster Story", "Casa Di Muda", and "Chicca".

EternalsApproaching The Energy Field ... LP
Submarine/Addenda, 2011. Sealed ... $14.99
Madly energetic, unpredictable material from Chicago's ever-evolving Eternals – tripped up, fearlessly creative and flat out fun stuff from one of our city's best longstanding indie concerns! The Eternals bring myriad influences into their own unique vibe, and like the best far-reaching groups, it pretty much comes out sounding only like themselves. Spacey synths, aggro and moody electronics and Arkestra styled jazzy instrumentation in the same set and it all makes sense. Ya know, it's just tough to describe The Eternals, other than to simply say how much we dig 'em and appreciate their uncompromising evolution. Titles include"War's Blazing Disciple", "The Energy Field", "Shadow Radio", "Dangerous Weather", "Alarms!", "Cancao Do Silencio" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Eyes Of BlueIn Fields Of Ardath ... LP
Mercury/Wah Wah (Spain), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Very cool work from this unique Welsh group of the 60s a combo who might have started out in beat group modes, but really go for something different on this unique set! Eyes Of Blue have this spacious style that almost recalls the Moody Blues at times – but they're also much more gritty and soulful as well – almost as if they hit territory between the Moodies first record and their ambitous later works, but also draw on wider musical references that have them covering a Django Reinhardt tune on one track, and throwing in some classical references on another. Titles include the cut "Merry Go Round", which they did for a film with Quincy Jones – plus "The Light We See", "Souvenirs", "Little Bird", "Door", "Spanish Blues", "Chances", and "After The War". LP, Vinyl record album

FugsTenderness Junction ... LP
Reprise, 1967. Very Good+ ... $14.99
One of the most fully-formed albums from The Fugs – still quite hippy dippy, but with a focus that's sometimes missing in their other work! And despite the somewhat major label placement of the set, there's arguably even more power here than on the group's earlier indie sides – thanks to strong use of the best elements that make up the tunes. There's still a great mix of styles going on – from Buddist chanting, to sing-song poetry, to some countrified rock – and the album's got enough room for playful detours, but always snaps back into some stronger song-based modes. Allen Ginsberg and Gregory Corso both make guest appearances, and titles include "Exorcising The Evil Spirits From The Pentagon October 21, 1967", "War Song", "Dover Beach", "Turn On/Tune In/Drop Out", "Wet Dream", "Hare Krishna", and "Aphrodite Mass". LP, Vinyl record album

Slim GaillardVout For Voutoreenees ... CD
Audio Book & Music (UK), 1940s. Used ... $4.99
Classic work from Slim Gaillard – a vocalist so great, he created his own language! Slim worked in late 30s and early 40s LA – in the years before the city's big post-war R&B boom – and in a mode that would clearly pave the way for Charles Moore, Nat King Cole, and countless others in years to come. Slim's best known for his "vout" style of singing – a unique mode that often had him making up new words in the recording sessions – getting carried away with the rhythmic quality of his own tunes, and vocally improvising in a style that was years ahead of its time. The backings on these sides range from small group trio and quartet numbers, to a few larger orchestra tracks – and all are carried off with a lively approach to the work, and a good healthy dose of the Gaillard sense of humor! The set's a great introduction to Slim's classic years, and features a total of 18 tracks that include "Opera In Vout", "Dunkin Bagel", "Central Avenue Boogie", "Ya Ha Ha", "Cement Mixer", "Laguna", "Slim's Jam", "Buck Dance Rhythm", "Harlem Hunch", "Boogin At Berg's", "Vout Oreenee", and "Chicken Rhythm".

Gap BandGap Band (1979)/Gap Band II/Gap Band III ... CD
Mercury/BGO (UK), 1979/1980. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99
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
