Don BlackmanDon Blackman (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
GRP/P-Vine (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $21.99
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

✨✧ VariousFlying Funk – Ultra Heavy Funk & Rare Grooves From Flying Dutchmen, Bluebird, & RCA ... CD
RCA, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer batch of funk from the RCA family of labels – long-neglected in the world of reissues, and finally stepping out with this ultra heavy set! The package does a really great job of pulling together disparate elements of funk from the RCA catalog – a bit of jazz vocals, electric fusion, cosmic soul, and rock breaks – all packed together in one nicely priced set that includes some really great surprises! Titles include "Plane Of Illusion" by Johnny Griffith, "Mama" by Esther Marrow, "No More Tears" by Loading Zone, "Afro Strut" by Nite Liters, "Save Me" by Nina Simone, "Tite Rope" by Harold Alexander, "Got To Get A Knutt" by New Birth, "This Is The Me Me" by Richard Groove Holmes & Brenda Jones, "What's Going On/Ain't No Sunshine" by Bernard Purdie, "Happiness Is Just Around The Bend" by Main Ingredient, and "We Getting Down" by Weldon Irvine. 16 tracks in all – and very nice! CD

✨✧ Nina SimoneVery Rare Evening (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
PM/Shout (Japan), 1969/1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
