VariousTwin Cities Funk & Soul – Lost R&B Grooves From Minneapolis/St Paul 1964 to 1979 (with download) ... LP
Secret Stash, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $21.99 27.99
Rare soul from Minneapolis – a surprisingly great source for grooves in the years before Prince and Morris Day! Turns out, the Twin Cities were already funky, way before the Purple One came into being – as you'll hear in this wealth of rare singles from the late 60s on up through the 70s – all of them mighty darn soulful, and most of them pretty dang funky as well! The wealth of work is really surprisingly – with strong echoes of styles going on in the Chicago and Detroit scenes at the time, but maybe even more surprising, given that Minneapolis/St Paul didn't have nearly the same amount of resources. The package is easily one of the best ever done by the Secret Stash label – a set that really ups the level of their reissues – with a motherlode of killer cuts that include "Love Me Leave Me" by The Valdons, "Sweet Smell Of Perfume" by Maurice McKinnies & The Champions, "Work Your Flapper (part 1)" by Jackie Harris & The Champions, "She's A Whole Lot's A Woman" by Mojo & His Chi 4, "I Ain't Gonna Cheat On You No More" by Willie Walker, "Save Me" by Wanda Davis, "Saxophone Disco" by Morris Wilson, "Honey From The Bee" by Willie & The Bumblebees, "The Max" by Prophets Of Peace, "Get Up" by The Lewis Connection, and "Rusty McDusty" by Morris Wilson.

✨✧ VariousAmerican Folk Blues Festival – Live In Paris 20 Octobre 1962 (3CD set) ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1962. New Copy 3 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautifully-recorded concert from early 60s Paris – one done as part of the legendary folk-blues tour, and featuring a great selection of musicians, all with introductions from Memphis Slim! Slim's a hell of an MC for the event, and really provides this warm context that seems to open up the singers and musicians – who play here in a style that's every bit as crucial and faithfully handled as some of the early 60s blues performances at Newport – with none of the fake modes you might fear from a performance of blues for European audiences. The 3CD package seems to capture the entire concert, even in the way that Memphis Slim helps move from artist to artist – and in addition to solo performances by John Lee Hooker, Shakey Jake, Willie Dixon, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee, T Bone Walker, and Helen Humes – there's also a few numbers by the full ensemble of singers too.

✨✧ VariousSoul Searchin – Finding Gold In Memphis 1968 to 1979 ... CD
Hi Records/Backbeats (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
More than a decade's worth of music from the legendary Hi Records – and a great little set that goes way past the hits – and uncovers some overlooked singles from the legendary Memphis label! The cuts were chosen by Jaffa – who makes this Backbeats series look so great – and he's definitely got a great eye for an obscure single, especially the sort that shows us that Hi was even still great right around the fringes! Titles include "Pour On The Loving" by Jean Plum, "You Brought The Sun Back Into My Life" by Quiet Elegance with Dan Greer, "Back Into Your Heart" by Majik, "Happy" by Al Green, "Love Makes The World Go Round" by Willie Walker, "Mama Said" by Quiet Elegance, "Still Around" by James Fry, "Stepchild" by Veniece, "Ain't That Sharing My Love" by The Melodics, "I'm Gonna Stay" by Jean Plum, "What Made You Change Your Mind" by Eddie McGee, "It's You That I Need" by The Duncan Sisters, "Slidin In & Out" by The Memphians, "Love Trap" by Bobby McClure, "You Gotta Have Love" by OV Wright, and "Where's Your Love Been" by Donna Rhodes.

✨✧ VariousTruckers, Kickers, Cowboy Angels – The Blissed-Out Birth Of Country Rock Vol 6 – 1973 ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1973. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A huge year for the blending of country styles and rootsy rock – a time in which the genre was known to some as "redneck rock", but often had a lot hipper sound than that name might imply! In fact, the track list here might well be a "who's who" of early 70s hipsters who worked in the genre – the kind of artists who were really experimenting at the time, and have gone onto influence a huge range of younger musicians over the course of decades – not just rock artists trying out some country flavors, but also older country artists whose careers were suddenly coming alive as they mixed in with the underground rock scene of the time. As with other volumes, the set list here is great – way past the hits, and often some more obscure tracks that really deserve new discovery here in the focus that the collection brings – along with the usual excellent level of notes and presentation we've come to expect from Bear Family. Titles include "San Antone" by Doug Sahm with Bob Dylan, "Salty Dog Blues" by Earl Scruggs Revue, "Mercedes Benz" by Goos Creek Symphony, "Crying Heart Blues" by The Band, "If You're Ever In Oklahoma" by JJ Cale, "Old Five & Dimers Like Me" by Billy Joe Shavers, "Getting By" by Jerry Jeff Walker, "Shotgun Willie" by Willie Nelson, "Pancho & Lefty" by Townes Van Zant, "Sold American" by Kinky Friedman, "Sleepless Nights" by Gram Parson & Emmylou Harris, "Take Me Back To Tulsa" by Asleep At The Wheel, "Dixie Chicken" by Little Feat, and lots lots more – 46 tracks in all!

✨✧ Living BluesIssue 241 – Vol 47, No 1 ... Magazine
Living Blues, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Living Blues always has plenty of greatness to offer, but this issue seems to be even better than usual – with articles on contemporary delta bluesmen James "Super Chikan" Johnson and Joshua "Razorblad" Stewart – plus DC singer Charlie Sayles, Texas bluesman Blues Boy Willie, and southern soul talent Wee Willie Walker – all in an issue that also has a nicely polemical piece on "Robert Johnson Fakery"! There's additional blues news, reviews, and other features as well – and even a listing of the top 50 release of 2015. Magazine

✨✧ VariousHappy Lovin' Time – Sunshine Pop From The Garpax Vaults ... CD
Big Beat (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great underground work from the LA scene of the 60s – material that was really cut in the shadows of bigger acts like the Beach Boys or Byrds – but still handled by top-shelf superproducer Gary S Paxton! The work here is a great discovery – lots of material that's never seen the light of day before, cut at Gary's studio in the weeks between bigger hits – and other tracks are from very rare 45s that really show the farther reaches of the Sunshine Pop styles of the period – the kind of cool work that we always love tracking down on indie labels, and which continue to evolve our understanding of the Cali scene after all these years! As usual with Ace, the overall package is stunning – really great notes, excellent detail, and a motherlode of music – with titles that include "Bad Sign" by The Jaybees, "Games" by The Bogart Cult, "Make Up Your Mine" by Augie Moreno, "Christina In My Dreams" by Curt Boettcher, "Thinking Animal" by The New Wing, "Dandelion Wine" by The Whatt Four, "Savin" by The Lords, "Nowhere To Go" by The Four Freshmen, "The Highly Successful Young Rupert White" by The Privilege, "Who Do You Think You Are" by The Jaybees, "Is It Love" by Willie & The Walkers, and "Happy Lovin Time" by The Black Box.
