Rhonda ClarkBetween Friends ... CD
Tabu, 1989. Used ... $4.99
A great set of modern soul Rhonda Clark – one that really should have catapulted to super-stardom in the late 80s! Rhonda has the goods here – crisp, modern productions that are as strong as any R&B circa '89 – a diverse, attractive voice and a bunch of great songs. We can't fathom why it didn't top the charts at the time, but it's really strong stuff! Between Friends has production on Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis on the masterful single "State Of Attraction"– and their on board as musicians on some other tracks, too – with production by Randy Ran, Chuck Howard and Jellybean Johnson. Titles include "Does That Make A Man", "I Love Your Body", "Sugar", "Stay Here, Stay Near", "Now Matter How", "Sugar" and "Between Friends". CD

Braxton CookSomwhere In Between ... CD
Fresh Selects, 2017. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Braxton Cook is a singer, but he's often one who speaks first with his alto sax – which he blows in this wonderfully sharp way – often with cascading notes that set this beautiful mood for his tunes! The music is mostly electric – filled with Fender Rhodes, bass, and guitar – so the acoustic contributions from Cook really stand out in this great way, even though both his singing and saxophone work seem imbued with an electric sensibility of their own! Rhythms are quite fresh – maybe in a post-Robert Glasper style that makes the whole thing as compelling as it is complex – very down to earth in presentation, even though the record is bristling with new ideas. Titles include "FJYD", "You're The One", "Until", "I Can't", "Hymn For Trayvon", "Never Thought", and "Pariah". CD

Phyllis HymanIn Between The Heartaches – The Soul Of A Diva ... CD
Expansion (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy ... $9.99
Rare work by the late Phyllis Hyman – a killer collection of obscure sides from some of the best projects of her career, plus some additional titles that have never been issued before! In a world of endless "best of" collections of Phyllis' work, this set is a real gem – a package that truly understands the beauty of her music, and offers up obscure tracks to please longtime fans, but with a quality level that's equally great as – if not better than – any of her well-known studio LPs! The album's a dream come true to our ears – smooth, jazzy, sophisticated soul – sung by Phyllis in a timeless style, with help from a host of great jazz artists. Unreleased titles include "If You Ever Change Your Mind", "Hottest Love Around", "Don't Tell Me Tell Her (new version)", "Do You Love Him (fast version)", and "In Between The Heartaches" – and other tracks include "Love Surrounds Us Everywhere", "I'll Be Around", and "In Search Of My Heart", all with McCoy Tyner; "Sacred Kind Of Love", with Grover Washington; "Springs Arrival" with Jon Lucien; and "Everything I Have Is Good", with Pharoah Sanders & Norman Connors. The set's completed by tracks that include "Sleep On It", "Magic Mona", "Soon Come Again (extended)", and "Be One" – all from hard to find non-LP sources! CD

Isley BrothersBetween the Sheets ... LP
T Neck, 1983. Very Good ... $9.99
A wonderful album from the Isley Brothers – and a real departure from their funkier sound of the 70s! The album has the group operating in a wonderful smooth soul mode – just what you'd expect from the "between the sheets" in the title, and the silky bedclothes on the cover! The centerpiece of the album is the loving title cut – a wonderfully catchy number that works well not only as a stepper's dancefloor tune, but also as a hip hop sample track (used most famously in Tribe Called Quest's "Bonita Applebum".) The whole thing's great, though – and other tracks include "Choosey Lover", "Touch Me", "Slow Down Children" and "Getting' Over". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing, including the printed inner sleeve.)

✨✧ VariousSedayeh Del – Funk, Psychedelia, & Pop From The Iranian Pre-Revolution Generation ... CD
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Amazing sounds from the last Western years of Iran – really incredible music that shows what a cultural crossroads the nation had become! While some might criticize the culture as embracing the west too strongly at the time, music like this is a great illustration of the way that the cognoscenti were really onto something unusual – able to weave together the local and the global in really cool ways – crafting funk and grooves that are unlike any thing happening in neighboring scenes at the time! The mix of regional and western modes is not unlike Turkish music from a few years before – but the styles here are also much more soul-based, with a range that flows between funk and club, and includes some instrumentation you'd never hear on an American record at all – a perfect complement for the echoey style of vocal recording used on many numbers. The package may well be the most compelling so far from this mighty cool label – and titles include "Kermani" by Zia, "Koolehbaar" by Shahrokh, "Mahigir" by Maziar, "Omadi" by Shoreh, "Tasvire Yek Fal" by Soli, "Be Man Tekyeh Kon" by Shamaizadeh, and "Avazekhian Na Avaz" by Farrokhzad.

✨✧ VariousSoul In Harmony – Vocal Groups 1965 to 1977 – Superb Vocal Harmony From The Classic Soul Era ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of harmony soul gems – and a package that's overflowing with great numbers from a time when small group soul really sparkled in the funky 45 underground! Most of the cuts here have never appeared on CD before, and a handful are previously unreleased – and together, the set really showcases the sublime style of singing that emerged in the second half of the 60s – a new approach to harmonizing that was different from jazz, gospel, or doo wop groups in previous years – with tremendous interplay between the lead and backup parts of the group, in charts that were continually inventive and richly expressive at a level that still sounds completely great all these many years later! If you only know Motown male groups, or bigger names like The Impressions or Stylistics, you'll find plenty here to discover – a really rich tapestry of tunes that includes "Strange Voice" by The Imaginations, "Baby" by The Joneses, "Boom A Rang" by Dynamic Soul Machine, "By Your Side" by Moon & Mars, "Can't Get You Off My Mind" by Brothers Of Soul, "Waiting For Your Love" by The Love Experience, "Linda" by Salt & Pepper, "Need Someone To Love" by The Symphonies, "Take Your Time" by The Festivals, "That Day When She Needed Me" by The Performers, "We Can Make It Baby" by The Reputations, "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me" by The Four Sonics, and "I'll Be Waiting" by The Lovettes.

✨✧ VariousUnlock The Lock – The Kent Records Story Vol 1 – 1958 to 1962 ... CD
Kent/Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
The start of a wonderful label – the legendary LA imprint Kent Records – home to some excellent soul, blues, and R&B in its early years – plus a handful of rockers, too! The label is one that often worked in budget territory, but had some killer talent – and their early run of recordings finally gets its due here – in a package that features a whopping 48 tracks in all, 30 of which have never been on CD before! Big names are here – like BB King and Etta James – but there's also loads of other lesser-known artists too, who really fill in the space between the cracks – and offer up a very vivid picture of west coast R&B in the immediate pre-soul years. As always with Ace, the presentation and notes are superb – and titles include "You You You" by Van Robinson, "South's Gonna Rise Again" by Jesse James, "Ballad Of Stagger Lee" by the Senders, "The Fool" by BB King, "Sweet Lovin Honey" by Don Cole, "Baby Baby Every Night" by Etta James, "Hey Little Mama" by The Barker Brothers, "Dance The Thing" by Floyd Dixon, "Unlock The Lock" by Jimmy Nelson, "That's My Baby" by Artie Wilson, "Bye Bye Baby" by Chuck Tequila Rio, and "Without You" by Hal Davis.

✨✧ VariousZanzibara 2 – L'Age D'Or Du Taarab De Mombasa ... CD
Buda (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Prepare to be blown away! The second volume of the excellent new Zanzibara series focuses on taraab music recorded on the tiny island-city of Momabasa – off the Kenyan coast – for the Mzuri label between 1965-1975. Unlike the more traditional, languorous taraab made in nearby Zanzibar, Mombasa taraab reveals a stronger African rhythmic attack and a diminished Arabic feel. But the real charm is the strong Bollywood influence! Indian cinema was a popular attraction beginning in the 30s, and some of the songs here are loose interpretations of certain film scenes. Each group prominently features either accordion or harmonium, but the most ingenious sound is provided by the tashkota, a Japanese string instrument the musicians amplified for a dazzling, twangy tone – in addition to the usual violins, hand percussion, oud, and fantastic, soulful vocals. The booklet includes great liner notes and wonderful photographs, too. Sixteen tracks in all by Matano Juma & Morning Star Orchestra, Yasseen Mohamed, Zuhura & Party, Ali Mkali & Mvita Orchestra, Zein Musical Party, Maulidi Musical Party, and Bin Brek. CD

✨✧ David BowieZiggy Stardust & The Spiders From Mars (gold colored vinyl) ... LP
Parlophone, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Arguably one of the greatest rock and roll albums of all time – and the key flowering of the partnership between David Bowie and Mick Ronson! The guitars here are heavy – so much so that the record's always crossed over big with crowds who are always suspicious of Bowie's artier work of the 70s – and represented a crucial moment when his groundbreaking music also found a large mainstream audience as well. And despite the fact that Ziggy's an androgynous space rocker with a spurious pedigree, the manufactured posturing of the album's come to be taken quite literally over the years – a vivid text of alienation, expression, and redemption – served up beautifully over a host of classic tracks that include "Five Years", "Soul Love", "Moonage Daydream", "Suffragette City", and "Ziggy Stardust" – all further proof of Bowie's 70s ability to slide in wherever he wanted with ease! LP, Vinyl record album

AhnnuWorld Music/Perception (with download) ... LP
Leaving, 2015. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
A pair or hazy, abstract records by Ahnnu – World Music and Perception – in 2LP package from the adventurous Leaving label! World Music is a previously cassette-only set with remixes by Matthewdavid, Andrew Pekler, Nerftoss, Fumitake Tamura (aka Bun), and EMV. Perception is a loosely atmospheric set of aural soundscapes, a heady headphones experience that's as mesmerizing as anything we've heard on Leaving, walking the line between experimental beathead material and more experimental sounds. Includes "Gala", "Shame", "Solo", "Ghillie In The Mist", "Relative Research", "Ballast", "Found", "Mirror", "Scaling", "Informant", "The Racer", "Elastic", "Multibody", "Gala (Matthewdavid Remix)", "Sugar In The Dark", "Paia", "Monica/Swept", "Found (Fumitake Tamura 'Bun' Remix)" and more.

AinigmaDiluvium ... LP
Long Hair (Germany), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Ainigma may never have hit the big time, but that doesn't stop the group from rocking the hell out of this obscure recording from 1973 – a record that's equal parts prog and hard rock – with some incredible guitar and organ throughout! The tracks are all nice and long – side two even features just one long track – and these guys are never too indulgent, even when they find space to jam – often hitting just the right balance between core energy and farther explorations – and always really keeping a groove and sense of flow to their instrumentation! There's a raw, fuzzy quality to the sound that's a bit different from some of the clearer German productions of the period – and which also seems to give the record a sense of urgency too. Titles include "You Must Run", "Diluvium", "All Things Are Fading", and "Prejudice". LP, Vinyl record album

AirAir Song ... LP
India Navigation, 1975/1982. Near Mint- ... $34.99
A tremendous album from Air – recorded in their native Chicago, but one of the landmark 70s sessions on Japan's Why Not label! The trio is in wonderful formation here – very focused, with a sharpness that you don't always get in some of their other recordings – a perfect balance between the reeds of Henry Threadgill, bass of Fred Hopkins, and drums of Steve McCall! There's a tightness here that we really love – a bold sense of power that takes the AACM tradition, and fuses it with more of a 70s spiritual jazz approach at times – still experimental enough to live up to Air's reputation, but with occasional rhythmic elements that really push things forward. The album only features 4 tracks – but all of them are long, and stepped in soul – with titles that include "The Great Body Of The Riddle Or Where Where The Dodge Boys When My Clay Started To Slide", "Untitled Tango", and "Dance Of The Beast". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ AirtoFingers ... LP
CTI, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
One of Airto's greatest records ever – a really hard hitting batch of tracks that mix sharp-edged fusion lines with some earthier Brazilian percussion touches – all in a way that nicely steps off of Airto's first few American releases, and warms the groove up with a nice dose of California soul! Flora Purim joins in here on both vocals and percussion – and the rest of the group features Hugo Fattoruso on keyboards and harmonica, Jorgte Fattoruso on drums, and David Amaro on both electric and acoustic guitars – shifting nicely between both instruments in a way that further underscores the blended vibe of the record! Most of these tracks are Airto classics – like "Tombo in 7/4", "San Francisco River", "Romance Of Death", "Ringers", and "Wind Chant" – and the record has a very sweet CTI production style, but is still rough enough around the edges to keep things nice and real!
