Weldon IrvineSinbad (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1976. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Weldon Irvine's last album for a major label – and a key set that marks the debut of the legendary Don Blackman! Irvine's still very much in charge of the session, but Blackman's emerging here with the strength that would show up on his later soul sessions – singing lead vocals on some of the best cuts on the record, and also playing acoustic piano next to Weldon's bank of electric keys. Tunes are nicely varied throughout – returning to the exploratory nature of some of Irvine's earlier records – and there's even some great mellower numbers that are some of our favorite tracks on the set – including the sublime stepper "I Love You", the gently spacey "Music Is The Key", and a sweet instrumental cover of "What's Going On". Other tracks include "Sinbad", "Don't You Worry Bout A Thing", "Do Something For Yourself", and "Here's Where I Came In". CD

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 SimoneVery Rare Evening (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
PM/Shout (Japan), 1969/1979. New Copy ... 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

✨✧ Natural EssenceIn Search Of Happiness (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Fantasy (Japan), 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic bit of spiritual jazz funk – and one of the rarest 70s albums on Fantasy Records! The group's headed up by Nat Adderley Jr (son of the famous Nat Sr) on keyboards and vocals – and the ensemble is a hip, young collective with an approach that reminds us of work by Oneness Of Juju, Gary Bartz, and Weldon Irvine! If those three names aren't enough to prick up your ears for this one – one drop of the needle should be enough, as the record's a real winner all the way through, filled with well-written songs, and a mixture of soul jazz, funky fusion, and vocal tracks that really work great together. The kind of sweet rare 70s album you'll buy from us, and treasure for years – filled with great cuts like "In Search Of Happiness", "Red, Black, & Green", "Variation On Last Night", "Live My Life For You", "Killin' Time", and "Little Dahuoud's Dance".

✨✧ VariousDiggers Delight – More Rare Groove Gems ... CD
Backbeats (UK), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A diggers delight through and through – even though the set will save you plenty of digging! The package is a killer collection of rare funky nuggets and sample tracks – put together with an ear for some of the best bits that have provided the building blocks for the hipper side of the spectrum in recent years – and with an eye for cuts that haven't been compiled that often! Many of the names here are big ones from 70s soul and funk, but they're represented by harder cuts that move past their hits – a great array of grooves that includes "Walk With Me" by Manchild, "Family" by Hubert Laws, "People Make The World Go Round" by Angela Bofill, "Mighty Mighty" by Earth Wind & Fire, "It's Rough Out Here" by The Modulations, "Funky Monkey" by Mandrill, "Elevate Our Minds" by Linda Williams, "Crab Apple" by Idris Muhammad, "Theme From King Kong" by Lalo Schifrin, "We Get Down" by Weldon Irvine, "Trogladyte" by Jimmy Castor, "Sneaking Up Behind You" by The Brecker Brothers, and "Turn Off The Lights" by Larry Williams.

✨✧ VariousIn The Pocket – 70s Jazz Funk ... CD
Backbeats (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
In the pocket, and plenty darn funky – a killer collection of 70s jazz funk that's heavy on electricity, yet still keeps things mighty sharp throughout! The groove is tight – tighter than the raw soul of the 60s jazz years – yet never uptight, as all these cuts are plenty fresh and freewheeling, and definitely preserve the most spontaneous vibe of the players. Some cuts have a bit of vocals, some have some larger backings, but all still have some great solos in the middle – with an especially strong emphasis on sweet keyboards! Titles include "Zauis" by Eddie Russ, "Barbara Ann" by Webster Lewis, "Coming To You Live" by Charles Earland, "Brazilica" by Ramsey Lewis, "Sinbad" by Weldon Irvine, "Put It In The Pocket" by Freddie Hubbard, "Palos" by Willie Bobo, "Chicago Theme" by Hubert Laws, "Hop Scotch" by Harvey Mason, and "In The Park" by Lonnie Liston Smith.
