Lee Wiley & Ellis LarkinsDuologue ... CD
Black Lion, 1954. Used ... $2.99
A beautiful little concept for a beautiful little album – a "duologue" in which Lee Wiley sings one track, then Ellis Larkins plays the next, and so on – making for a split LP, but one with a lot of variety along the way! Wiley sings on about two thirds of the tracks on the set – working with a small combo that features Jimmy Jones on piano, Ruby Braff on trumpet, Jo Jones on drums, and Bill Pemberton on bass – all of whom provide gentle accompaniment to Lee's traditionally styled vocals. Ellis Larkins plays piano on the rest of the tracks – solo, with that wonderful late nite style of his – an approach that's more complicated than cocktail piano, but a bit more laidback than straighter jazz. Wiley numbers include "My Heart Stood Still", "Give It Back To The Indians", "My Romance", "You Took Advantage Of Me", and "My Funny Valentine". Larkins numbers include "Perfume & Rain", "By Myself", "Looking At You", and "Then I'll Be Tired Of You". CD

Archie SheppMy Man – Tribute To Sidney Bechet ... CD
Impro (France), 1981. Used ... $9.99
Leave it to Archie Shepp to deliver a tribute to Sidney Bechet with amazing results – a deeply spiritual session that's quite different than the trad jazz outing you might expect! Sure, a few of the tunes are Sidney's – but Shepp's renditions here are completely unique – stretched out and soulful, with the same sort of rich sounds you'd expect from his late 70s European work – a touch of jazz traditionalism, but mixed with all the openly-expressive modes that Archie helped bring to jazz from the 60s onwards. Shepp plays soprano sax, flute, and a bit of piano – and other players on the date include Charles McGee on trumpet, Charles Eubanks on piano, Santi DeBriano on bass, and John Betsch on drums. Michelle Wiley sings on two great numbers – "My Man" and "Blues For Bechet", both done with that all-soul Shepp approach – and other titles include "Premier Bal", "Passport To Paradise", and "Petite Fleur".

VariousBoppin By The Bayou – Drive-Ins & Baby Dolls ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
Rare rocking sounds from the Louisiana scene at the end of the 50s – pulled from that magical moment when the swampy state was one of the biggest brewing grounds for new sounds at the time! This volume of the Bayou series is mostly on the rock tip – but as with other volumes and work from Louisiana in general, there's a heck of a lot of genre-crossing going on – rock that draws from blues, hillbilly, and even cajun rhythms at times – which makes for music that's a fair bit different than the sounds you might have been getting from Memphis at the time! Most of these tracks are from rare sources, too – not just obscure singles on small labels, but also some unissued master tapes – some that might have come out briefly on older compilations, and a good number of cuts appearing here for the first time ever. As usual with Ace Records, the notes and package do a great job of making sense of the whole thing – further illuminating the groove – and titles include "She's Fine" by Frankie Lowery, "Draggin The Drive Ins' by Cookie Roberts, "Baby I Don't Care" by Wiley Jeffers, "Love Can Wait" by Johnny Bass, "Charge It" by Roy Templin & The Credit Cards, "Sweet Thing" by Cleveland Crochet & His Band Of Sugar Bees, "Let Me Come Your Way" by Burl Boykin, "Frankie & Johnny" by Zoro & The Zips, "Hey Joli" by Terry Clement, "No Money Down" by Rod Bernard, "Prisoner's Song" by Tommy Todd, and "Kruschev & The Devil" by Jay Chevalier.

VariousEl Primitivo – American Rock & Roll & Rockabilly ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
A killer collection of raw early rockers and rare rockabilly gems – all with a vintage vibe and classic sound that's way more than you'd expect from the image on the cover! The sound here definitely lives up to the "el primitivo" promise – and the tracks include rare numbers from Chess Records, Nash, and the Do Ra Me label – plus a number of never-issued tracks that fit in perfectly here – making for a set that's half rare singles, and half never-heard music! The set's one from the early Ace Records years on CD – when the reissue label was doing great work for the rockabilly scene – with tracks like this, and titles that include "Save It" by Mel Robbins, "Oh Yeah", by Wally Jeffrey, "I Wanna Dance All Night" by Chuck Wiley, "Explosion" by Cliff Nash, "That'll Get It" by The Imps, "I Wanna Shake It" by Curtis Hobock, "The Thump!" by The Embers, "I Love You Dearly" by Jimmy Hurt & The Del-Rios, "Best Dressed Beggar In Town" by Houston Turner, "Out Of Gas" by Chuck Howard, "Jelnny Lou" by Cliff Nash, "Door To Door" by Chuck Wiley, "Uh Oh" by The Imps, and "Are You With Me" by Mel Robbins.

VariousRockin South ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
The south might have rocked in plenty of big scenes during the late 50s – Memphis, Houston, and some other big cities for music – but the work here might well beat them all, as it came from the smaller NRC group of labels, way down in Atlanta, Georgia! The music has plenty of fire and twang right from the start – not just hillbilly moving into rockabilly, but some full-formed early rockers that seem to take off from the best raw, raspy modes of the Louisiana and Tennessee studios of the time – but with maybe even a more striking sense of freedom overall! The CD's filled with gems we'd never have heard otherwise – all given the usual stunning Ace Records presentation – great sound and the kind of notes that always beat the bootlegs on the market. 30 tracks in all – including "The Cat" by Rod Willis, "Baby Please Don't Leave" by Sweetie Jones, "The Coo" by Wayne Cochran, "The Little Moon Men" by Lee George, "Strollin' After Dark" by the Shades, "I Got A Girl" by Tommy Roe & The Satins, "I Love You So Much" by Chuck Wiley, "Wolf" by The Four Mints, "Black Knee Socks" by Clyde Beavers, "I'm Happy" by Robert Gill & The Gill-O-Teens, and "I'm Snowed" by Joe South.

✨✧ Chester ThompsonMixology ... CD
Doodlin, 2012. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavy Hammond from the mighty Chester Thompson – a smoking soul jazz set that's a real return to the sound of his Powerhouse album from the 70s! Thompson's jazz chops have only gotten better with age – and although he's certainly got a strong resume in funk and soul, we're really impressed at his dexterity on the organ here – working out these quick changes and long-spun lines that would be right at home on mid-60s Prestige Records! Yet most of the tunes are nice and tight, too – never too overindulgent, and a nice balance between groove and solo space as well . Thompson works here with Barry Finnerty on guitar, Joel Behrman on trumpet, and Howard Wiley on tenor – and Lonnie Smith guests on one track too! Titles include "Medallion", "Clockwise", "A Subtle One", "Sweet Sixteen", "Speak No Evil", "Sista Strut", "Mr T", and a nice version of "Moontrane". CD

University Of Central Arkansas, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The 18th fantastic annual music issue of the Oxford American – a yearly event that's come to be treasured by folks 'round these parts – both for the writing, and the always-great compilation CD that's packaged inside!

✨✧ VariousSweet Soul Sounds Vol 1 ... CD
SSS, 1960s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful stuff for late night listening – a mixture of harmony soul tracks and sweet vocal numbers by a mixture of male and female singers, all pretty wonderful, and all the kinds of tunes that you're not going to be turning up easily in the racks, even at Dusty Groove! Titles include "Peace Of Mind" by The Vontastics, "Just A Part Of Life" by The 5 Crowns, "I'll Always Love You" by The Festivals, "Sitting There That Night" by Darrow Fletcher, "It's You For Me" by the Amazers, "Lanore" by The Vondells, "Feel At Home Here" by Michelle Wiley, "Be Ever Wonderful" by Ted Taylor, "She's Gone" by Nolan Chance, and "Never Too Much Love" by The Impressions. Lots of rare Chicago gems, too! The fidelity is a bit crackly in parts, but no more so than a dusty old 45! CD
(Note: CD appears to have been mastered from vinyl sources – and although printed professionally, it's a bit low-budget in terms of the packaging. CD may not play well on all players. Out of print.)
