Betty Padgett
Luv N' Haight, 1975. (reissue)
LP ... About August 25, 2017
Rare Florida soul from Betty Padgett – a 70s singer who didn't chart nearly as high as some of her sunshine state contemporaries, but who sounds equally great on this rare self-titled debut! Like Gwen McCrae, Betty's got a great way both with mellow, soul-drenched tunes, and with funkier ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
Today
Atlantic/El (UK), 1972.
CD ... About October 20, 2017
The Dud's really groovin' here, and lays down some really mellow rooney material. Great originals, like the single "Song for Suzy" and the nice bossa-sounding track "Waterloo", plus a few light, lyrical covers. No kidding, this has been one of our fave LPs around the office, ... CD (Jazz)
Chariot Rising
Esoteric (UK), 1967.
CD ... About October 20, 2017
An amazing step sideways for London's Zoot Money – a move from mod to psych, with a trippy quality that's quite different from his jazzy sound a few years before! The group's got legendary fame – not just for the shift in styles by Zoot, but also for the fact that it features key work ... CD (Rock)
EMI/Wise Crack (UK), 1971.
CD ... About October 6, 2017
An excellent album that features loads of material from Benny Hills' early days – when he was tighter and fresher, and before he worked too many years for ITV! You may recognize a number of these titles from later recordings, but these early ones are just great, and feature a much more ... CD (Comedy/Spoken)
Continental/Groovie/Lion, 1973. (reissue)
LP ... About September 7, 2017
Massively heavy sounds from A Bolha – a Brazilian group who were previously known as The Bubbles, and backed up Gal Costa during the Tropicalia years – but who work here in a fuzzy, bassy groove that's totally great – definitely an heir to the headier sounds of the UK scene at the ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock)
Ecstatic
Downtown/Universal, 2009. (reissue)
LP ... On October 6, 2017
Mos Def's first for Downtown after a weird few years on Geffen that saw many a bumped street date, the hit & miss New Danger, and finally, the semi aborted release of the controversial True Magic – back with a top shelf, excellent album in 2009's The Ecstatic! It may not be Black Star or ... LP, Vinyl record album (Hip Hop)
Sam Records/Saga, 1959.
LP ... On October 6, 2017
A rare and unused soundtrack recording by Thelonious Monk – and a set of music that would be a standout in his catalog, even if it wasn't planned for a film! You probably know the Art Blakey soundtrack for the movie – which was the used and released version – and you might even ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)
Island, 1975.
CD ... On October 6, 2017
A great global showcase for the growing power of Bob Marley – an excellent live set recorded in London in 1975, and a date that shows Bob and The Wailers working with the crowd in this really universal spirit! The group's almost got a funkier current here than on some of their studio record ... CD (Reggae)
One Nation Underground
ESP/Drag City, 1967. (reissue)
LP ... About October 20, 2017
Genius work from Pearls Before Swine – the haunting folk rock combo that was headed by singer/songwriter Tom Rapp! We'd place Rapp in a unique category with Tim Hardin, Leonard Cohen, Nick Drake, and a rare few other talents who could mix together styles and come up with a sound that ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock)

Movements
Blank, Late 60s. (reissue)
LP ... About October 13, 2017
A seminal album from Johnny Harris – the David Axelrod of the UK! Like David, Johnny worked heavily at the end of the 60s and early 70s – blending funk and jazz influences with older styles of soundtrack and instrumental work, coming up with a sublime style that was never duplicated, ... LP, Vinyl record album (Sound Library)
Outlander
Blank, 1970. (reissue)
LP ... On October 13, 2017
Possibly the biggest album ever from Welsh singer Meic Stevens – but a set that's still pretty darn obscure, nonetheless! The album's all in English, and was recorded as a key outing for Warner – before Meic went back to his homeland, and went virtually underground. The style's quite ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock)
Mr Bongo (UK), Mid 70s. (reissue)
LP ... About October 20, 2017
A vintage set from the great Ebo Talyor – an artist who's been recording new music in recent years, but who sounds even better here on one of his classics! Ebo's got a fair bit of jazz mixed in with his sound – a layering of flute, trombone, tenor, guitar, and keyboard parts with a ... LP, Vinyl record album (Global Grooves)
Surf Ride
Savoy/Sony (Japan), 1952/1954.
CD ... About October 25, 2017
A classic 50s album on Savoy – a set that's almost as memorable for its cartoony cover as it is for the great Art Pepper material on the record! Pepper's tone here is wonderful – that sharper-edged, more soulful approach that you often get in his smaller label 50s work – a nice ... CD (Jazz)
Jazzmen Detroit
Savoy/Sony (Japan), 1956.
CD ... About October 25, 2017
One of the first albums from guitarist Kenny Burrell as a leader – a date that has him working with players from his hometown scene in Detroit – in case you couldn't guess from the title! Kenny's style here is a bit different than on the Blue Note dates of the time – almost a bit ... CD (Jazz)

Mr C
Arista (Japan), 1981.
CD ... About August 23, 2017
A real sleeper from Norman Connors, but a great record – one that shows him still moving strong in the 80s, always continuing to develop his smooth jazzy soul style! Backing is by the Starship Orchestra, with Marion Meadows on most sax solos – and vocals are by Norman, Jean Carn, and ... CD (Soul)
Love Approach
GRP/Sony (Japan), 1980.
CD ... About August 23, 2017
An excellent album of smooth jazz funk – and despite the fact that it was a monster hit for Tom, it's still pretty hard to find on wax! The record is a perfect example of how great R&B jazz fusion could be – well before the sound hit a kind of smooth jazz saturation point and there ... CD (Jazz)
Soul Survivors
CBS/Sony (Japan), 1974.
CD ... About August 23, 2017
A surprisingly nice record by the group who scored big in the late 60s with "Expressway to Your Heart" – and who continued to be one of the best blue eyed soul acts working on the east coast! This album's the group's second, done for Gamble & Huff at Philly International – ... CD (Soul)

RCA (Japan), 1980.
CD ... About August 23, 2017
CD (Soul)
Portrait/Sony (Japan), 1979.
CD ... About August 23, 2017
Soaring vocals and wickedly groovy arrangements – a beautiful blend that may well make this the greatest album The McCrarys ever cut! The backings here are even better than before – upbeat, but with lots of jazzy inflections that almost feel like some of the best 80s grooves on Capitol ... CD (Soul)
Loving Is Living
Portrait/Sony (Japan), 1978.
CD ... About August 23, 2017
The first secular album by The McCrarys – the start of a great run for this group who started in gospel, then really blossomed even more strongly in soul music! The record's got an endorsement from Stevie Wonder, who also plays harmonica and does a small bit of vocalizing – but the ... CD (Soul)

Planet/Sony (Japan), 1981.
CD ... About August 23, 2017
Titles include "Feels Right", "Here We Go Again", "Two Lovers", "Isle Of Castaways", "Feeling Wonderful Feelings", and "Suspicions". CD (Soul)
