Weldon IrvineLive At Dean Street ... CD
Squatty Roo, 1992. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
A rare live set from Weldon Irvine – recorded during his last few years on the planet, when the keyboardist was experimenting with a whole range of new ideas! Irvine had been off the scene for a number of years, but returned in the 90s with renewed energy, thanks to the appreciation of a big younger audience – and the setting here is quite different than some of the fuller, more heavily produced albums of Weldon's big 70s years – a stripped-down quartet performance in Brooklyn, with Weldon playing a range of jazz, soul, and funk! Irvine handles keyboards and vocals in a group that also includes alto, bass, and drums – and many tracks are nice and long, and relatively instrumental – although Irvine also tries out a few of his hip hop rhymes at points too. The recording quality is a bit "live" – the set was originally captured by Weldon on a cassette – and titles include "Dr George", "Make It Funky", "Summertime", "Rocket Love", "Blue In Green", and "Funky Vendetta/Big Bad Wolf".

Don BlackmanDon Blackman ... CD
Arista/Expansion (UK), 1982. New Copy ... $16.99
A jazz funk masterpiece, and THE record by the legendary Don Blackman – the only one issued under his own name for many many years, and a famous little set that's been sampled endlessly over the years, and for good reason! The vibe here is one that's barely been matched again – a blend of 70s fusion, bassy funk, and even tighter riffing – all put together with a greater depth and sense of soul than most other records of its type. Blackman's a GRP contemporary of Bernard Wright, Tom Browne, and Weldon Irvine – and there's bits of all their sound in the work here, but somehow Don does it even better – hitting these grooves, notes, and lines that seem to fall from the heavens – and which still stand as some of the hippest music of his generation. A record to file proudly next to your copies of Ramp and James Mason – and like those gems, the kind of record that only happens once in an artists career! Titles include "You Ain't Hip", "Yabba Dabba Do", "Heart's Desire", "Deaf Hook Up Connection", "Never Miss A Thing", and "Holding You Loving You", and "Since You Been Away So Long". CD
(Remastered edition – completely new version taken from the original source master tapes!)

Nina SimoneHere Comes The Sun ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... About October 15, 2015
Classic RCA work from the great Nina Simone – and an album that definitely shows Nina hitting more of the soul spectrum than some of her folk and jazz work of the 60s! The set's got these wonderful arrangements from Harold Wheeler – a bit electric, and done in a way that takes familiar tongs and completely recasts them for Nina's own vibe – a way of shifting the sense of spirit to unlock a special Simone-like quality you never would have expected in the tunes from anyone else! Titles include a great version of "Ooh Child", plus "Just Like A Woman", "Here Comes The Sun", "New World Coming", and "My Way". And the set also features Weldon Irvine's own composition, "How Long Must I Wander?" CD
Also available Here Comes The Sun ... LP 14.99

✨✧ Nina SimoneVery Rare Evening (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
PM/Shout (Japan), 1969/1979. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A very rare evening indeed – a sweet little live set recorded by Nina Simone during her soulful height at RCA – but issued years after that time, and only briefly on a small indie label! The setting here is wonderful – a small combo in the background with the great Weldon Irvine on Hammond, playing these soulful lines that are mighty lean and plenty powerful – spurred on by rhythms from Al Shackman on guitar, Gene Perla on bass, and Don Alias on drums! The record also features two female backup singers on a few cuts – giving the album an almost Sweet Inspirations like touch at moments – but overall, the feel is straight hip Nina – that unique blend of soul, folk, and jazz that pushed things to the next level at the end of the 60s! Includes the great original "Revolution", plus the track "The Other Woman", "In The Morning", "Ain't Go No/I Got Life", "Save Me", and "To Love Somebody". CD
