✨✧ Rough ShopLit Up Like A Christmas Tree (with bonus download) ... LP
Perdition, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Christmas albums have always been a particular favorite of ours – in case you haven't guessed from our comments on these pages – and we're especially big fans of folks who try to bring something new to the Holiday canon, by coming up with fresh tunes of their own! Rough Shop do exactly that on this special Christmas album – by penning nearly half the tunes themselves, in a home-grown manner that really comes across well – personal tracks that are the real standouts on the record, and way better than the most of the covers here – although the group does a great version of the Marvin Gaye Christmas classic "Purple Snowflakes"! Yet it's their own tunes we love the best – cool indie pop contributions that remind us of the Pearlfishers' Christmas EP from years back – titles that include "Christmas Isn't Like Any Day", "Christmas Time", "A Christmas Snowfall", "Snowbound Girl", "Soul Of Christmas", and "Santa What You Got In The Bag".

✨✧ Georgie Fame & The Blue FlamesRhythm & Blues At The Flamingo (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1964. Used ... $19.99
Blistering early work from a young Georgie Fame – a set that definitely lives up to the Rhythm & Blues in the title! The set was recorded live at London's hip Flamingo club – and Georgie and The Blue Flames are very much in command of the crowd – burning with the intensity of a American small organ combo, especially the early 60s variety that often played equal parts soul jazz and R&B! Georgie's on the Hammond, and also sings with a rough-edged style that's plenty soulful, and incredibly appealing – a mode that oozes charisma, but never sounds fake or forced. Other instrumentation includes tenor, baritone sax, bass, drums, and conga – plus some great guitar from Big Jim Sullivan – and titles include "Do The Dog", "Eso Beso", "Work Song", "Baby Please Don't Go", "Shop Around", "Humpty Dumpty", and "You Can't Sit Down". This 2016 edition comes loaded with a huge number of bonus tracks, too – with 1964 BBC Session recordings of "Night Train", "Walking The Dog", "Do-Re-Mi", "You're Breaking My Heart" wtih Long John Baldry and more, plus "Parker's Mood", "Molasses", "Funky Mama (Blue Moon Bootleg Version)", "Money (That's What I Want)" and lots more. 10 tracks on the original album – plus 13 bonus tracks!

✨✧ Georgie FameWhole World's Shaking – Complete Recordings 1963 to 1966 (Rhythm & Blues At/At Last/Sweet Things/Sound Venture/Rarities/bonus) (5CD set) ... CD
Universal (UK), 1960s. New Copy 5 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Four incredible albums from the young Georgie Fame – plus a bonus CD of rare material, bonus tracks on all CDs, and 18 previously unreleased tracks – all in a box set with a 48 page book, 5 postcards, and a poster too! First up is Rhythm & Blues At The Flamingo – blistering early work from a young Georgie Fame – a set that definitely lives up to the Rhythm & Blues in the title! The set was recorded live at London's hip Flamingo club – and Georgie and The Blue Flames are very much in command of the crowd – burning with the intensity of a American small organ combo, especially the early 60s variety that often played equal parts soul jazz and R&B! Georgie's on the Hammond, and also sings with a rough-edged style that's plenty soulful, and incredibly appealing – a mode that oozes charisma, but never sounds fake or forced. Titles include "Do The Dog", "Eso Beso", "Work Song", "Baby Please Don't Go", "Shop Around", "Humpty Dumpty", and "You Can't Sit Down". Fame At Last is a brilliant mix of jazz, soul, and R&B – all filtered through a mod sort of London freshness, as early proof that the city could always take some great things from our own musical roots, and feed it back to us with a whole new flavor! Georgie's no copycat here, though – and the sound is instantly Fame-like – a style that's really not the sort that any Americans were doing at the time, and certainly never this well. Hard-burning Hammond colors most of the tunes here – played with a tightly vamping quality – but it's Georgie's charmingly crackling vocals that really win us over! Titles include "Gimme That Wine", "Pink Champagne", "Monkeying Around", "Green Onions", "Let The Sunshine In", "Get On The Right Track Baby", "I'm In The Mood For Love", and "I Love The Life I Live". Sweet Things is a definite sweet thing from Georgie Fame – a record that has him filling in his sound even more than before, with tremendously soulful results! The backings here are bigger than before – a bit tooled in an American soul mode, but still with that beautifully raspy Georgie Fame touch – lots of jazzy inflections on the vocals, and a way of handling a tune, even a familiar one, and really working it on his own level. Hammond still fills in most of the tunes, but other instrumentation includes some nice African percussion from Speedy Acquaye, saxes from Pete Coe, and some nice bold drums from John Mitchell. These come out to the forefront on the classic funky tune "Music Talk" – and still sound great on other numbers that include "The World Is Round", "Last Night", "Dr Kitch", "My Girl", "Ride Your Pony", and "Sweet Thing". Sound Venture is one of the jazziest early albums from Georgie Fame – a set that has him singing with the big band of Harry South, at a level that's a lot more complicated than some of his other work with The Blue Flames! The style here still has that mod 60s London feel, but it also has some deeper inflections as well – modes borrowed a bit from Jon Hendricks or Mose Allison, yet served up with even greater complexity – at a level that really points towards the tremendous growth Fame would unleash over the next few years. Members of the group include Tubby Hayes, Ronnie Scott, Tony Coe, Dick Morrisey, Kenny Wheeler, and many other key Brit jazz figures of the time – and titles include "Three Blind Mice", "Dawn Yawn", "Feed Me", "Lovey Dovey", "Lil Darlin", "Lil Pony", "I Am Missing You", and "Many Happy Returns". CD5 is Bend A Little – a package with 20 unusual titles – demos, rare tracks, and outtakes – including unreleased tracks, IBC recordings, and even two German tracks too! Plus, each individual CD comes with bonus tracks – 40 bonus tracks, in addition to the 20 more titles on the Bend A Little set – a huge amount of material! CD

Walter BishopHot House ... LP
Muse, 1979. Very Good ... $4.99
Walter Bishop takes a trip back to his bop roots with this one – working in trio and quintet formation, and running through a host of mostly older bop standards! The quintet tracks are our favorites – as it's not often we hear Bishop in this stretch with a group larger than a trio – and the presence of Bill Harman and Junior Cook on trumpet and tenor, respectively, fleshes out the record with a nicely soulful sound. The rest of the group features Sam Jones on bass and Al Foster on drums – who also play on the trio tracks – and titles include "Dahoud", "Move", "My Little Suede Shoes", "All God's Children", and "Hot House".

Walter Bishop Jr TrioWalter Bishop Jr Trio 1965 ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1965. Used ... $14.99
An obscure early set from Walter Bishop – recorded for the tiny Cotillion label in the mid 60s, and featuring a young Butch Warren on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums! The setting is simple and soulful – with Walter working through a batch of tunes that are mostly standards, but which include a few nice originals with a fresh approach. There's less of the freer soul that Bishop showed in his 70s work, but the set's still pretty darn nice – and titles include "Dottie's Theme", "Dinkum", "33rd Off 3rd", "Getting Off The Ground", and "Love For Sale". CD seems to have a number more tracks than the LP – a total of 16 in all! CD

✨✧ Atomic/School DaysNuclear Assembly Hall ... CD
Okka Disk, 2004. Used 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
They got the title right on this incendiary release, yet another transatlantic love affair between a nice patch of forward thinking Nordic improvisers and some of our own homegrown talent. The School Days quartet is a group that grew out of connections built up through the extended Vandermark/Gustafson relationship, with two of the leading lights of Chicago new school – Vandermark and Jeb Bishop – in the front line teaming up with a European rhyhtm section – Haker Flaten and Nilssen-Love – and taking inspiration from the landmark Lacy/Rudd recordings they derived their name from. As it happens, the rhythm section are from the group Atomic, with whom you may be familiar from their excellent Jazzland recordings, combining the best of the free avant scene with a strong rhythmic underpinning. This set of all original material bristles with energy, as the playing bounces between Ornette-ish phrasing, tightly arranged passages and textural improv. 9 numbers in all, spread out over 2 CDs, including "W Meets A", "Transparent taylor", "Ink Worm", "Kerosene", "Conjugations" and "Dog Days".

Neal HeftiHow To Murder Your Wife ... LP
United Artists, 1965. Sealed ... $7.99
A swinging sex comedy score from the legendary Neal Hefti – not as well-known as some of his big 60s hits, but a wonderfully groovy record throughout! The film itself is a pretty silly farce – and Hefti definitely matches that action in his music – by mixing up jazzy, upbeat numbers with some sweeter tunes that have that lush, laidback style we always love in his orchestrations! Things are never too heavy, and the whole thing's got a lightness that really stands out from other work of this nature by Hefti's contemporaries – especially on a few of the tracks that make some great use of groovy wordless vocals. Titles include "Prologue (Main Theme)", "Suspicion", "Virna", "Here's To My Lover", "Stag Party Blast", "Bash Brannigan", "How To Murder Your Wife", "Scene Of The Crime", "Cartoon Capers", and "Requiem For A Bachelor".

Sharon Jones & The Dap KingsSoul Of A Woman (3CD set – with Give The People What They Want & I Learned The Hard Way) ... CD
Daptone, 2010/2014/2017. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99 23.99
A triple-pack of soulful sounds from Sharon Jones – three albums together at a very nice price! The header of the set is Soul Of A Woman – the fantastic final album from Sharon Jones – a wonderfully deep talent who was taken from us all too soon! The set's maybe the ultimate setting for Sharon's incredible voice – as it features both her longtime core combo, the Dap-Kings – as well as additional backings from the Bushwick Philharmonic – a small ensemble of strings who really help elevate the music to classic status! If you're worried that the strings might soften the sound, the very first note of the record will put your mind at rest – as will the heavy drums that mark just about every track, and keep things hard and funky throughout. If anyone ever doubted that the Daptone label was our modern equivalent of Stax Records or Atlantic, this will certainly be the set to change their mind – and will also stand forever as a bittersweet reminder of all the greatness that Sharon Jones gave us over the years. Titles include "Searching For A New Day", "Rumors", "Matter Of Time", "Sail On", "Just Give Me Your Time", "Come & Be A Winner", "Call On God", and "These Tears". On Give The People What They Want, Sharon Jones steps out strongly with a sense of maturity that seems to take her vocals even farther than before – and The Dap Kings are more than ready to match her energy with some funky work of their own! Jones has gone through a lot in recent years – both with the band and in her own personal life – and the record's a proud summation of life's challenges and triumphs, served up in the instant-classic style that has made Sharon one of the greatest living soul singers of the past few decades. Bosco Mann knocked things out of the park with his raw production – and also wrote a good number of tracks on the set too – and titles include "Making Up & Breaking Up", "Long Time Wrong Time", "People Don't Get What They Deserve", "Retreat", "Stranger To My Happiness", and "Now I See". I Learned The Hard Way is the fourth album from Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings – solidifying what we learned pretty early on from the indomitable soul spirit that is Sharon and her impeccable combo the Dap-Kings – it's that this is not some retro soul revival novelty act, what they are is the greatest active embodiment of a true soul sound that will never go away! We've always loved that Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings recognize the studio and the stage as different worlds. On stage, Sharon is the possibly the most energetic, charismatic presence you'll ever see and the band brings heft and heat. In the studio, they stretch out and diversify wonderfully, bringing both raw, unpolished funky soul realness to some more stripped down numbers and a full on Stax or Hi level heaviness to the bigger ones. The songs are better and more memorable than ever on this record – with "The Game Gets Old" and "I Learned The Hard Way" (an astoundingly strong one/two punch for the opening minutes) plus "Better Things", "Give It Back", "Money". "The Reason", "Window Shopping", "I'll Still Be True", "Without A Heart", "If You Call" and "Mama Don't Like My Man". CD

✨✧ Mad LadsMad Lads In Action ... LP
Volt, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Some rare early Memphis soul material by this legendary Stax combo! The sound of the recording is a bit rawer than most of the stuff we know by them, but their harmonies are great all the way through, with that hard Memphis soul sound that always made them so great! It features the earliest recordings of the group that we've heard, with a number of harmony soul covers of some of the hits and lots of great tunes. The album's got a weird, and somewhat sinister cartoon cover – which makes it an oddity, both for Stax and for the group! Titles include "Nothing Can Break Through", "You're My Inspiration", "Sugar Sugar", "Don't Have To Shop Around", "Michael The Lover", "Land Of 1000 Dances", "Come Closer To Me:, "I Want Someone", their nice cover of "Get Out Of My Life" and more.

Koch, 1979. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Still one of THE standout records of the post-punk years – the simple but effective dub statement of three London ladies with decidedly left wing politics! The record's in a format that would later be copped by dozens of groups – one that mixes together post-punk and heavy dub – the former of which is served up with some nice rough guitars and crackly vocals, and the latter which is done even better with some super-solid production by Dennis Bovell! Titles include "Shoplifting", "Spend Spend Spend", "Instant Hit", "Newtown", "Ping Pong Affair", and the seminal "Typical Girls"! CD also features their version of "Heard It Through The Grapevine" and "Liebe & Romance (slow version)". CD

VariousDeep Jazz Trip ... CD
Muse/Pho, Early 70s. New Copy ... $4.99
Things definitely get plenty deep on this jazz trip – a great run through the 70s catalog of Muse Records, and one that's filled with some incredible bits that we'd rank right up there with the best work of the time on labels like Black Jazz or Strata East! Muse always had a way of really letting its artists do their thing – and you'll heard that clearly on some of the best cuts here – numbers that offer up surprisingly vibrant sides of the artists included, usually with some righteous undertones. Titles include Eddie Jefferson's rendering of "Freedom Jazz Dance" (and a very crazy one at that), Charles Earland's excellent stormer "Murilley", Kenny Barron's "Swamp Demon", Walter Bishop Jr's "Soul Village", Joao Donato's "Night Tripper", "Old Man Moses" by Grant Green, and three nice ones by Carlos Garnett – "Good Shepherd", "Banks Of The Nile", and "Taurus Woman", from the classic Black Love LP.

✨✧ Ted Sirota's Rebel SoulsBreeding Resistance ... CD
Delmark, 2004. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Another salvo of fierce modern jazz from one of the best young groups in Chicago. Ted Sirota's Rebel Souls represent a neglected corner of the Chicago improvisers fabric, merging players from various scenes, but playing in a style that transcends hard bop's classicism and the intellectual and sonic excess of the free/avant garde scene and embraces a sound not too distant from that associated with the Chicago Underground. Not surprising given that members of the whole post rock-Underground camp have made their way through the group at various times. This lineup features Geof Bradfield and Jeb Bishop up front, with Jeff Parker and Clark Sommers alongside leader Sirota in the rhythm section. The playing reflects the heavy political vibe expressed in Sirota's notes with musical commentary both strident and contemplative on numbers like the afrobeat influenced "Saro-Wiwa", sound collage of "Chairman Fred" and the heavy roots reggae inflection of "This Is A Takeover". 11 numbers in all, including "Elegy", "Pablo", "For Martyrs" and "Breeding Resistance (Paper Tiger Blues)".

✨✧ VariousBest Of Black Jazz Records ... CD
Black Jazz/Universal Sound (UK), Early/Mid 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
13 tracks pulled from one of the greatest soul jazz labels of the 70s – the boldly titled Black Jazz, a company who put out some tremendous music! Black Jazz was similar to Strata East and Tribe – 2 other great independents of the time – in that it really allowed the musicians a creative freedom that they didn't always get on bigger and more mainstream labels. The result was a sublime blend of righteous jazz tunes that were some of the most cutting edge jazz funk of the time – a wealth of great numbers that mixed light electric work with really solid jazz soloing, and which occasionally used vocals to serve up the message even more strongly! The set's all-great, all the way through – with classics that include "Coral Keys" by Walter Bishop Jr, "Higher Ground" by Doug Carn, "Powerhouse" by Chester Thompson, "Soul Village" by Walter Bishop Jr, "March On" by The Awakening, "Diswa" by Rudolph Johnson, "Maiden Voyage" by Kellee Patterson, "Slinky" by The Awakening, and "Eglise" by Roland Hanes.

Sequel (UK), 1996. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
In the wake of The Sound Gallery compilation, there have been a lot of weaker Euro/Brit easy listening compilations (including Sound Gallery II), but this is one of the few to match the brilliance of that initial release! This volume is a totally sublime mix of great British funky sixties pop stuff, by instrumental heavyweights like Roy Budd, John Schroeder, and Laurie Johnson. The groove is wild and dynamic, with many wonderful groovy moments. After sailing through a hot version of "The Bird Has Flown", the comp screeches to a halt with Roy Budd's fantastic "Car Chase", which was lifted from some groovy sixties movie. 22 tracks in all, and most of this stuff is impossible to find – even in the UK! (And believe us, we've spent more than enough time scouring record shops for the odd Roy Budd LP!) CD

Free Jazz WorkshopInter Frequences (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Bisou/Souffle Continu (France), 1973. New Copy ... $23.99
An overlooked moment on the French free jazz scene at the start of the 70s – and a completely homegrown effort throughout! Unlike the famous albums in the initial wave of BYG and America label releases, which often featured American musicians joining overseas players – this set is a completely French outing, and shows a remarkable sense of energy and spontaneous creativity – a fresh fire that matches the FMP scene in Germany for imagination and power, but cast out in different ways that show the changed sense of style and relationships that were brewing in France. Imagine some of the Saravah Records material, played more freely – and you'll get part of the vibe here – but there's also a very special, very unique quality throughout. Players include Jean Bolcato on bass, Jean Mereu on trumpet, Maurice Merle on soprano and alto sax, Patrick Vollat on piano and prepared piano, and Christian Rollet on drums. Titles include "Sirene", "Ode A Lon Chaney", "Inter Frequences", "Air Perdue", and "Sphinx". LP, Vinyl record album

Hungaroton (Hungary), 1991. Used ... $11.99
Evocative work from Aladar Pege – one of the strongest bassists on the Eastern European scene, heard here in a series of recordings made with Hungarian players in the early 90s! Pege's tone and craft of the bass strings dominates most of the tracks – setting the stage for the tunes with a power that recalls Ron Carter's 70s shadings on the instrument – a mode that makes his presence known, but leaves plenty of room for major solos on trumpet, tenor, and guitar – which participate in the tracks in shifting lineups throughout the set. Titles include "Funny Night", "Hommage A Charles Mingus", "Summer Breeze", "Autobahn", "For Susan", "Butterfly Dance", and "Caleidoscope". CD

✨✧ VariousFatback's Soul Shop ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
If we had a shop like this in our neighborhood – we'd be broke! Fatback are (of course) the legendary 70s funk group whose records we've loved for decades – but what's not as well known is that they also ran a little storefront office known as the House Of Fatback, located in Queens, and home to some really funky music! The office not only served as headquarters for the group, but was also a place where they caught new talent, and kept one ear to the street for other artists to work with. In the years before Fatback themselves broke big, the group ran a label – also called Fatback – and recorded some excellent local talent on the New York scene – a mix of soul and early funk acts, handled with a level of quality that ranks right up there with the best indie soul of the late 60s. This great set features 16 tracks from the Fatback label, along with great notes that really get at their story – and contains a wonderful range of tunes that are all winners all the way through! Titles include "The Cat Walk" and "Little Bit Of Soul" by Gerry & Paul & The Soul Emmisaries, "You're My Everything" and "Who Will It Be" by Mary Davis, "Right Or Wrong" and "I Need You" by The Puzzles, "Why Don't You Let My Love Go" and "Got To Find A Way" by Jimmy Williams, "Put It In" and "Keep On Brother Keep On" by Johnny King & Fatback Band, and "Quiet Waters" by GP & The Soul Emissaries.

BBE (UK), 1982. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The cover might look a bit understated, but the album's got plenty of depth and power – a rare set from the Texas underground of the early 80s – cut by a group who've clearly drunk deep from the same musical well that inspired Stevie Wonder, Roy Ayers, and other cosmic soul talents of the 70s! As with Stevie and Roy, there's plenty of jazzy currents in the music of The People's Workshop – warm keyboards, sweet sax and flute, and waves of color that really come through the grooves and illuminate the deeper spirit of the vocals. There's a sense of collaboration here that's really special – almost a James Mason vibe at times – all with a sense of sophistication that's quite different than the rootsier sounds you might normally expect from Texas soul groups. Titles include "Save Your Money", "A Song For The Children", "Love Love", "Let's Get High", "Chocolate Coated People Song", and "This Song". LP, Vinyl record album

Great session of deeply soulful tenor work, featuring Rouse in a group with Blue Mitchell, Walter Bishop, Earl May, and Art Taylor. At this point in his career, Rouse is in his pre-Monk days – but beginning to experiment heavily with a more modernist approach to hardbop. The results are great – especially on tracks like "Blue Farouq", "Wierdo", "204", and "Pretty Strange" (the latter two of which are originals by Randy Weston, making a first appearance on this session.)

Spider TrioPresences ... CD
Blue Millennium, 2007. Used ... $2.99
A bold trio from the Chicago scene – and one with a vibe that's a bit different than some of the city's other avant work! There's a nicely rootsy feel here – almost organic at points – a bit more together than just free improvisation, yet also almost workshopped in the way the tunes come together – a really personal, almost poetic blend of the saxes of Bryan Pardo, drums of Tim Keenan, and bass of Dan McNaughton. The group swings beautifully on "The See You Later Library", comes up from spare percussion on "Sparkle Guitar", dances around a bassline on "Right Round The Corner/Up Through The Cracks", and comes on with some wonderful elasticity on the cuts "Three Questions" and "Stumble". A great set overall – and more proof that there's plenty of fresh energy on the Windy City scene in recent years! CD
