✨✧ Living BluesIssue 241 – Vol 47, No 1 ... Magazine
Living Blues, 2016. New Copy ... $4.99
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

Jr Walker & The All StarsPeace & Understanding Is Hard To Find ... LP
SOUL, 1973. Very Good+ ... $3.99
At some level, we have to admit, we've always been a shade disappointed in this record, no matter how many times we go back to it. It must be that the music doesn't quite live up to what the Efram Wolff cover image implies is within, and perhaps it's that Walker hasn't fully brought himself up to speed with the times to get with the hip righteousness that was going on in the Detroit scene of the early 70s. But there's a few ringers here, with some numbers arranged by Willie Hutch, Gene Page and James Carmichael, and Walker was hip enough to include a Leon Ware penned number, so though this album falls somewhere between Walker's signature gutbucket R&B sound that put himonthe charts and the heavy soul you'd hope for, it's got a few nice moments. Includes "It's Alright, Do What You Gotta Do", "Soul Clappin'", "Gimme that Beat (parts 1 & 2)" and "Peace & Understanding Is Hard To Find". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousTruckers, Kickers, Cowboy Angels – The Blissed-Out Birth Of Country Rock Vol 6 – 1973 ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1973. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99 31.98
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!

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 ... $24.99 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.

VariousHappy Lovin' Time – Sunshine Pop From The Garpax Vaults ... CD
Big Beat (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
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.
