Casablanca/Reel Music, 1976. New Copy
CD...$6.99 15.98
A great little album from Jeannie Reynolds – and her lasting contribution to underground soul! Jeannie's vocals are nice and deep – with hints of southern diva phrasing, filtered through some of the tighter soul styles coming out of Chicago and other points north at the time! Detroit ... CD
De-Lite/Reel Music, 1971. New Copy
CD...$7.99 15.99
One of the greatest Kool & The Gang albums ever – a monster live session that almost blows away their studio classics! The groove here is far more freewheeling and complex than some of their singles from the 70s – longer, tripped-out tunes with a definite undercurrent of jazz ... CD

Ella Washington

Ella Washington
Sound Stage 7/P&C, 1969. New Copy
CD...$6.99 15.99
A rare set of deep deep deep soul vocals by one of the best singers on the Sound Stage 7 label – Ella Washington's self-titled gem from 1969! Ella's vocals are as great as those of the soul superstar divas of the day, and she's backed by a beautifully tight band – in a style that ... CD
RCA/BGO (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
Four of the more obscure RCA albums from the great Bobby Bare – all brought together here in a single set! First up is the very unusual English Countryside album – a special set that has the vocals of Bobby Bare paired with a group from the UK – Liverpool's Hillsiders, who sing ... CD

Steve Saiz

Logo Party Vol 3
Dale Zine, 2022. New Copy
A really cool idea for a book – one that's filled with hundreds of logos of vintage record labels – all in full color, and all presented without any other text at all! If you love flipping through rare records as much as us – especially 45s – you'll find plenty to love here ... Book

Tom Skinner

Voices Of Bishara
International Anthem/Nonesuch, 2022. New Copy
The first album as a leader from drummer Tom Skinner, but a set that instantly marks him as a player to watch – as the set's got a great vibe all the way through, and a combination of elements that's even greater than the sum of its parts! And the parts are pretty mighty, too – as the ... CD
Cotillion/Iconoclassic, 1981. New Copy
Wonderful work from Slave – an album that's still got the hard funk of earlier years, yet which also has the group sweetening up their sound in a great sort of 80s groove way! Most tracks kick along with that great rolling bass sound that the group practically invented – and which has ... CD

Matthew Halsall

Temple Within
Gondwana (UK), 2022. New Copy
CD...$9.99 14.99
A record that's more of an EP than a full length release, but one that's still really overflowing with fantastic music from the great Matthew Halsall – a player who can deliver as much meaning and soul in a short space as most musicians can in a double-length set! The album features four ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
The great Jimmy Webb is one of our favorite songwriters of the 60s – a young man at the start, but one who could come across with a maturity that few of his contemporaries could match – arguably setting the scene for a key step into adult pop that would really explode in the 70s! Yet ... CD
Righteous (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD
A set that definitely lives up to its title – but in a way that's a bit different than some of the other Lux & Ivy compilations on the Righteous label! This time around, the set is more of a four-pack, featuring different albums that have a great way of blending exotica, higher ideas, ... CD
Dark Tree (France), 1995. New Copy
Unreleased live work from spiritual jazz legend Horace Tapscott – a record that's every bit as soulful as some of his classics, but nicely different too – in a way that really demonstrates the overlooked legacy that has finally been getting his music the attention it deserves in recent ... CD
Luaka Bop, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
The Nigerian scene has given us plenty of music over the decades – and while the scene in the 70s was best known for heavy funk and crossover club, it also really resonated strongly with some new spiritual currents as well! One of the shining stars of that moment was Alhaji Waziri Oshomah ... CD

Pierre Henry

Pierre Henry Collector
Universal (France), 2010s. New Copy
A mindblowing journey in sound – a dip into the archives of French composer Pierre Henry – the postwar master of electronics and musique concrete, and an artist who was still very active in the final years of his life! The material here was all either recorded or reworked in Henry's ... CD

Mary Jane Girls

Mary Jane Girls
Motown/Universal (Japan), 1983. New Copy
The great first album from The Mary Jane Girls – easily their best, and an 80s pop soul delight all the way through! Rick James is firmly at the helm of the quartet for this release – and although the sound has elements of James' own crossover funk of the time, there's also an approach ... CD

Oran Juice Jones

Juice
Def Jam/Universal (Japan), 1986. New Copy
Seminal 80s soul from Oran Juice Jones – a massive album issued on Def Jam, and one that helped bring just a taste of the hip hop world into mainstream R&B! Russell Simmons produced most of the record, and Kurtis Blow handled a bit too – but it's really Juice who sends the whole ... CD

Cookers Quintet with Bernie Senesky

Path
Do Right (Canada), 2022. New Copy
Canadian piano legend Bernie Senesky is a key part of the Cookers Quintet this time around – and his presence on the record really gives the combo a fire that we've not heard on previous records! The rhythms are more open, the sound more organic, and maybe overall more majestic – as ... CD

Dusty Springfield

Dusty Sings Soul
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A long-overdue look at the soul-based side of the work of Dusty Springfield – maybe the most important side of her music, really – given how many times we find her Atlantic Records material in collections next to Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin! Yet although Dusty soon recorded for ... CD

Khari Cabral & Jiva

Five
Splash Blue, 2022. New Copy
A long-overdue return for Khari and Jiva – the kind of pairing that first won us over to neo soul many years back – and sounding equally wonderful here! The album begins with a reworking of the James Mason classic "Good Thing" – and it only gets better and better from ... CD

Ryo Kawasaki

Juice
RCA/Mr Bongo (UK), 1975. New Copy
One of the few American releases by this legendary Japanese fusion artist – and a pretty funky little record as well! Ryo Kawasaki plays lead guitar and the very cool "string synthesizer" on the set – making for a sweet mix of electric grooves that has some really great ... CD
Ansonia/Vampi Soul (Spain), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
CD...$9.99 16.99
Some of the best work ever from Puerto Rican percussionist Rafael Cortijo Verdejo – sides recorded in New York for the Ansonia label, at a time when Cortijo's music was even more rootsy than it was a decade before! The material here marks a renewed sense of tradition in players of Cortijo's ... CD

John Lee Hooker

Urban Blues
Bluesway/BGO (UK), 1967. New Copy
CD...$8.99 14.99
A fantastic late 60s set from John Lee Hooker – one that has the legend working in a mode that echoes some of the funkier soul styles of the time, but with a vibe that's still very much in the best spirit of his classic work! The groove is slightly amped up by the electric bass of Eddie ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1972. New Copy
CD...$8.99 19.99
A pair of Columbia classics from trumpeter Maynard Ferguson – back to back on a single CD! First up is an album titled Ballad Style, but there's no sleepy ballads here – thanks to hip backings from British arranger Keith Mansfield – who also worked with Maynard Ferguson on some ... CD
ABC/BGO (UK), 1972/1973. New Copy 2CD
CD...$8.99 24.98
Two early 70s burners from BB King – back to back as a 2CD set! LA Midnight has BB King bringing in a sweet dose of jazz to his work – just a touch of the funkier backings that some of his electric contemporaries were getting at the time – maybe not as hard-wailing as some of the ... CD

Keefe Jackson/Jim Baker/Julian Kirshner

Routines
Kettle Hole, 2022. New Copy
CD...$8.99 11.99
Magical sonic interplay from a trio of really well-matched improvisers – and a set that's got a very special quality, too – in that pianist Jim Baker is also handling some electronics! The reed work of Keefe Jackson is filled with all the special tones and phrasing we love in his music ... CD

Gathering (Jesse Sharps)

Healing Suite
Village LA, 2022. New Copy
CD...$8.99 13.99
A really powerful project from the LA underground – served up by a group led by Jesse Sharps, who you may remember from classic albums on the Nimbus label – and done at a level that unites the sound of his generation with some of the best currents of more contemporary years! The lineup ... CD
Vampi Soul (Spain), 2009. New Copy 2CD
CD...$5.99 24.99
A rich serving of grooves from the contemporary Spanish scene – a surprisingly strong place for heavy funk and heady rhythms – played here by a wealth of groups we've never heard before! The package is a real revelation – an indication that there's plenty going on in Spain that ... CD
Champion/Mochilla, 2006. New Copy DVD & CD
A beautiful document of a magical musical moment – one of the few live performances ever of the work of David Axelrod – a concert that's presented here in a special CD & DVD package! Axelrod's 60s albums are the stuff of legend – orchestral efforts with a funky undercurrent, ... DVD
Skye/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1969. New Copy
CD...$5.99 16.99
A hip little set from Ruth Brown – miles away from her earlier R&B for Atlantic, and much more in the adult, righteous, and contemporary mode you'd expect from the title! The session's one of the key sides from the late 60s Skye Records catalog – and like others on the label, it ... CD

Billy Strange, Les Baxter, Hall Daniels & Others

Secret Agent File
GNP, Late 60s. New Copy
Although there were plenty of easy and studio musicians who tried to cash in on the success of the Bond-era spy soundtracks, few did it as well as Billy Strange! He gets a helping hand here from Les Baxter and a boatload of west coast session greats like Carol Kaye, Tommy Tedesco, Dennis Budimir, ... CD
Charly (UK), Mid 90s. New Copy
CD...$5.99 18.99
Obscure Holiday work from James Brown – not the oft-compiled tracks from his late 60s years at King Records, but some later numbers that show that Brown could still turn out one heck of a Christmas tune! James' vocals are at their older best – still surprisingly powerful, and able to ... CD

Maha

Orkos
Habibi Funk (Germany), 1979. New Copy
A very groovy set that was recorded in Cairo at the end of the 70s – vocals by Maha, a singer who'd worked with the Egyptian Jazz Band of Salah Ragab – but done here in a style that's very different than the work of that group! There's some nice funky tracks on the record, mixed with a ... CD
Venture/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1980. New Copy
If you had to imagine what Captain Ganja & The Space Control might sound like, you'd probably get it right from the very first try – especially if you were looking at the cover of the album at the time! The set's a very spacey take on dub modes of the 70s – often augmented by lots ... CD

Eddie Kendricks

People Hold On
Tamla/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy
A truly amazing album – unlike anything Eddie Kendricks ever did before, or since – and one of those records that really helped shape the sound of soul in the 70s! The music is as rich and powerful as the image on the cover – with some righteous undercurrents that really mark the ... CD

Scone Cash Players

Brooklyn To Brooklin
Daptone, 2022. New Copy
The second Brooklin in the title here is a city in Brazil – referenced by the group as a place of new inspiration, which seems to come through in some occasionally more complicated rhythms on the set! If you love the previous work by this Hammond-heavy combo, don't fret – as there's ... CD
Capitol/Universal (Japan), 1983. New Copy
A massively wonderful album from Dayton – an album that has the group really getting their groove together – still sticking a bit in the older funk mode from the past, but also bringing in some warmer, deeper touches to their music too! There's a solidness here that's undeniable – ... CD

Kutiman

Open
Siyal (Israel), 2022. New Copy
Wide-open sounds from Kutiman – an artist who just seems to perfect his craft more and more with each new record – at a level that might make his earliest efforts feel a bit forced compared to the natural blend of sounds going on here! Yet the style isn't that different, either, just ... CD
Lawrence King (UK), 2018. New Copy
A book that's a typographical masterpiece – a look at letters and signs from around the globe, past and present – organized in a wonderfully striking way! The book is part history, and much more about art and graphic design – as it's filled with page after page of really ... Book
Steidl (Germany), 2015. New Copy
Beautiful black and white photographs of contemporary Cuba – most shot at a level that really gets at the timeless quality of life in the nation after the US and west have left it behind! The images are from both urban and rural locations, and do a great job of getting past some of the ... Book
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 2022. New Copy
A solo performance from groundbreaking saxophonist Mats Gustafsson, but one that's got sort of a "phantom" partner in Peter Brotzmann – as Mats works here from the boxed set of musical scores that Brotzmann originally created for his Chicago Tentet! Gustafsson plays selections from ... CD

Don Rendell

Odysseus Suite
British Progressive Jazz (UK), 1970. New Copy
A brilliant lost album from British reedman Don Rendell – an unreleased 1970 session that was done after his famous 60s work with trumpeter Ian Carr – and a set that is every bit as modern and far-reaching as those well-known classics! As you might guess from the title, the album's ... CD
RGS (Argentina), 1961. New Copy
Wonderful early live work from Gato Barbieri – heard here both before his important American records on Impulse, and his earlier emergence in the global avant garde – already blowing with a really wonderful tone on tenor, in a hip quartet that features the great Ruben Baby Lopez Furst ... CD

Half-Truths

We Party/Let's Party
GED Soul, 2022. New Copy
Heavy funk from the Half-Truths – a combo we're usually used to hearing behind a singer, but who can more than enough knock this one out of the park on their own! "We Party" has these fast romping drums peppered with horns – moving at a nice clip while guitar weaves in and ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Weidenfeld & Nicolson (UK), 2019. New Copy
England's a nation of many key cities – and over the years, each one of them has developed its own sound and scene – especially the northern spots covered here, which are almost as important to the sound of British music as the city of London! Author Karl Whitney does a great job of ... Book
teNeues, 2011. New Copy
Gary Taxali is an artist with a really great style – a way of taking vintage aesthetics and giving them a more contemporary, underground vibe – maybe a bit like some of the artists associated with Raw magazine many years back, but at a level that makes Taxali's art a lot more versatile ... Book
Trova/RGS (Argentina), 1972. New Copy
Guitarist Sebastiao Tapajos really sounds wonderful here – playing in a spare setting, but a lively one too – thanks to work from percussionist Pedro Dos Santos, who plays a wide variety of instruments that really keep things groovy! There's a feel here that's a bit like some of Baden ... CD

Winston Brothers

Drift
Colemine, 2022. New Copy
You've never heard of The Winston Brothers before, but their music is definitely familiar – as the group features players from funk combos Mighty Mocambos, Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band, and Hamburg Spinners – coming together here with an equally great sense of groovy energy! The ... CD

David Boykin Expanse All Stars

Live At Unnamed Club
Sonic Healing Ministries, 2022. New Copy
We're not sure why David Boykin couldn't name the club for this performance – as the set's every bit as great as his other live recordings in other venues, and is a testament to the continuing development of this underground saxophone giant of the 21st century! The group is a quartet, with ... CD
Mute/Spoon, 1976. New Copy
A searing slice of live energy from the mighty Can – an extended concert performance that shows just how different some of the group's live material was compared to their studio recordings – especially at this time when they were tightening things up slightly for their records! As fans ... LP, Vinyl record album

Patrick Cowley

Malebox
Dark Entries, Early 80s. New Copy
A whole host of rare tracks from electro maestro Patrick Cowley – all of them the sort of grooves that were burning up dancefloors in San Francisco in the years before Cowley was taken from us all too soon! These numbers are all clubby instrumentals – post-disco, pre-house – but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joyce

Natureza
Far Out (UK), 1977. New Copy
A record that could have been the biggest breakthrough in the career of the legendary Joyce – yet the set was never issued at the time! The late 70s session has Joyce recording in New York, under the guidance of studio maestro Claus Ogerman – who has a wonderful way of elevating the ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A whole host of rare cuts from the original Kent Records label in LA – the 60s follow-up to the famous Crown/Modern/RPM imprint of the postwar years – a set of labels that gave the world plenty of amazing R&B tracks in the 50s! Here, Kent is going more for a 60s groove overall, but ... CD
