Al GreenAl Green Gets Next To You ... CD
Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1971. New Copy ... $9.99 15.98
Al Green's first major album, and a killer batch of Memphis soul tracks with a sound that's a bit rawer than later years. The formula for the hits is firmly in place – and Al's beautiful voice is swept up wonderfully in very sympathetic production by the great Willie Mitchell. Although Mitchell had worked fine on his own before the record, it's his work with Green that really pushes him to the top of the soul hall of fame – as it's hard to imagine how anyone could have come up with a better showcase for Al's amazing voice. Proof of this can be heard on the record's great original tunes by Green – like "All Because", "I'm A Ram", "You Say It", and the classic "Tired Of Being Alone" – as well as on covers like "Driving Wheel", "Can't Get Next To You", and "Light My Fire".

Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1975. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Heavenly soul doesn't get any more heavenly than this! Al Green's at the height of his powers here – working in that wonderfully smooth, wonderfully warm style that made his early 70s material so wonderful! This album's maybe slightly less iconic than some of Green's other titles for Hi Records – but only because it's less chock-full of hits, even though the quality and sound is every bit as high as the rest of them! Willie Mitchell did an impeccable job on production – and titles include the classic track "Love Ritual" is a great little groover with a funkier sound than usual for Al, which is fine by us – and other tracks include "LOVE", "The Love Sermon", and "There Is Love" Hey, they weren't kidding with that title!

Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $11.99 19.99
Al takes over the whole deal with this one – as the record features him writing, producing, arranging, and even playing lead guitar – stepping out from under the protective wing of Willie Mitchell, and doing a surprisingly great job overall! Al does get a bit of help in the studio – from Fred Jordan and Reuben Fairfax, whose names are hidden in smaller type, under the message on the back that says that the record is "something new" – but as we've come to learn from all the other Al Green records we've loved over the years, the man himself is more than enough to make the record wonderful – with vocals that are unbeatable at this point in his career! Titles include "All N All", "Belle", "Loving You", "Georgia Boy", "Feels Like Summer" and "Dream". LP, Vinyl record album

Al Green, 1973 – what could be better? The king of Memphis soul is at the height of his powers here – working in a setting that yielded less chart hits than some of his other albums for Hi Records, but which is still as sublime as the rest – thanks to an undeniable studio magic guided by Willie Mitchell! The sound is full, but never slick or smooth – and Al's vocals are tremendous throughout (but honestly, did you expect anything less?) Titles include "Call Me (Come Back Home)", "Here I Am (Come & Take Me)", "Funny How Time Slips Away", and the beautiful "Have You Been Making Out OK?" CD

Al Green explores your mind – then moves onto your heart, your soul, and everything in between! The album's a classic in the best Hi Records tradition – and features Al moving into a style that's even more spiritual than before – serving up the sublime tracks "Take Me To The River" and "God Blessed Our Love", both of which seem to point strongly at the direction he would take in later years – but also managing to mix the secular with the spiritual, in a way that's as sexy as ever!

Hi Records/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
Over 80 minutes of magic from the great Al Green – a special entry into the Japanese-only series of Free Soul collections! The series often mixes together great tracks from different artists, but this volume features only music from the godlike Al himself – a warm, mellow blend of Memphis soul nuggets – and one that mixes together classic Hi Records hits with some lesser-known gems from Green! Willie Mitchell's great production really ties the whole thing together – as does the wonderful work of Free Soul maestro Toru Hashimoto, who still has one of the greatest ears for grooves we've ever heard. Titles include "Full Of Fire", "Let's Stay Together", "You Ought To Be With Me", "Love", "Take Me To The River", "Sha La La", "Love & Happiness", "Love Ritual", "So Good to Be Here", "Loving You", "Your Love Is Like The Morning Sun", "King Of All", "Look What You Done For Me", and "I Think It's For The Feeling".

Warm wonderfulness from the great Al Green – a record that may have a pale-looking cover, but a set that's one of Green's most deeply soulful albums ever! There's a grace and a glow to the set right from the very first note – that really unique presentation and performance that makes these early 70s Green albums such enduring treasures – and so unlike anything else that's ever come since, no matter how many folks were influenced by Al's sound! The production is perfect – with Al helping Willie Mitchell at the helm, as they balance together the richness of the instrumentation with core elements in the rhythms – on titles that include Al's stone classic "Love & Happiness", plus "I'm Still In Love With You", "I'm Glad You're Mine", "What A Wonderful Thing Love Is", "Look What You Done For Me", and his great remake of Kris Kristofferson's "For The Good Times" – a country/soul classic if there ever was one!

Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1972. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
A damn great bit of work from the legendary Al Green – maybe one of his best records ever – and in fact, maybe one of greatest soul albums of all time! The set's got a style that's really genre-defining – not the previous southern soul of a few years before, but also not the modes that were happening up north either. Instead, Al lays things out with this stunningly mature style – sexy, but never overdone – confident, but never in a swaggering way – with a really special flow that comes from the great Willie Mitchell's talents in the studio, but an edge that's Green at his secular best. The album's got a lasting appeal that's made it a favorite for generations – both a key introduction to soul, but also a treasured favorite for longtime collectors – and never every track's a gem – from the classic "Let's Stay Together", through a set list that includes "I've Never Found A Girl", "La La For You", "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart", "So You're Leaving", and "What Is This Feeling".

Hard to go wrong with Al Green at this point – 1973, when the mighty one was at the height of his secular soul powers – and when the sweetly compressed production style of Willie Mitchell just couldn't miss! There's a homey, earthy feel to the record that's really great – a sound that kicks back and lets the soul flow magically – never forcing things at all, nor taking them into the sort of easy hit territory that would have been a temptation at this point. And if anything, the album's a wonderful exercise in understatement – the kind of gently flowing soul that Green virtually invented at the time, and which few other singers could hope to match! Titles include the excellent "Let's Get Married", plus "Livin For You", "Free At Last", "Home Again", "So Good To Be Here", and "Beware" – all original tracks written by Green! CD

Cream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A tasty double-live set from Al Green – one that has him working through longer versions of tunes than you'd hear on his studio albums, and really doing great in front of an appreciative Japanese crowd! The overall approach here is a bit more modern than on some of his older Hi albums – as the band uses the extra space to make things a bit more uptempo and really push the groove – but Al's vocals still hold the whole set together nicely, especially on the numbers where he lets loose a bit more. Linda Jones is one of the backup singers on the set – and titles include "Belle", "Let's Get Married", "Love & Happiness", "I Feel Good", "Dream", "God Blessed Our Love", "You Ought To Be With Me", and "Tired Of Being Alone".

Although the date of this one might make you think that Al's softening it up a bit, that's definitely not the case! If anything, the record's a bit rougher than some of his earlier albums on Hi – with Willie Mitchell still working on production and arrangements, but perhaps not crossing all the T's and dotting all the I's as perfectly as before. Not that that's a bad thing, as the record makes for a great addition to any collection of Al's work – and includes some lesser-known gems that are carried off with a deep sense of soul and emotion.

The groove is upbeat, bright, and brilliantly soulful – that punctuated Basie groove first formed when Neal Hefti was with the group, still carried off here wonderfully by a lineup that includes Frank Wess and Frank Foster on saxes, Snooky Young and Al Aarons on trumpets, Benny Powell and Henry Coker on trombones, and Freddie Green on guitar. Titles include "The Second Time Around", "Hey Jealous Lover", "All Of Me", "This Love Of Mine", "Saturday Night", "Come Fly With Me", and "South Of The Border" – almost a Sinatra album in spirit, given the choice of tunes like these!

Superb work from pianist Richie Beirach – a set that's dedicated to Bill Evans, and which certainly embraces some of the key numbers in his songbook – but which also has that even more spacious sound that Beirach was bringing to his trio dates in the 70s! Richie's sense of timing and tone are fantastic – doing so much with so little, that Evans would have been pleased – although again, Beirach is hardly borrowing straight from Bill's style. Also fantastic is bassist George Mraz, whose way of inflecting notes and measuring color and mood almost rival the role of Eddie Gomez when playing with Evans – all balanced nicely by the work of Al Foster on drums, who's at his most subtle here. Titles include "Blue In Green", "Nardis", "Peace Pipe", "Spring Is Here", "Solar", and "In Your Own Sweet Way". CD

Bryant's got a sound here that's still firmly in the Hi style forged by Willie Mitchell – who produces this set – but there's also some nicely rougher edges too, a sound that's almost more Stax than Hi – and which certainly features a bit of a nod to Wilson Pickett down in Muscle Shoals – not exactly funk, but with some nice grit in the grooves! The whole thing's great – and titles include "Try Me", "Cry Baby", "Funky Broadway", "Soul Man", "Land Of 1000 Dances", "She's Looking Good", and "Slip Away". LP, Vinyl record album

A contemporary soul set from the UK, but one that's got a very laidback vibe and a very mellow 70s sort of sound! The style is nicely easygoing – kind of slow funk on most tracks, which is perfect for the lead vocals and the way they trip along the tunes in a way that's relaxed, but never sleepy – with these inflections that are subtle, but powerful – maybe somewhere in a space between Larry Saunders on his few 70s recordings, and Al Green serving up a ballad on Hi Records! Instrumentation is great – keyboards and acoustic guitar, but used in ways that are really distinct from so many contemporary artists – a really fresh vibe, and a record that really stands out from the pack. Titles include "Atomic Soul", "Freshly Glazed", "Lucky", "Real Fake Diamonds", "Afro Flame", and "Lightning Doesn't Strike Twice". LP, Vinyl record album

Why isn't Shaun Escoffery bigger? He's easily been one of the top soul singers in the world for over a decade – and a record like this should be in everyone's collection! Shaun's always had a cutting edge sound in his music – and this time around, he inflects it with a bit of classic soul too – mixing his 21st Century style with a sound that puts him rock solidly in the territory of Al Green, Marvin Gaye, or Bobby Womack – all artists we wouldn't hesitate to compare Shaun to – given the depth and consistency of his music! The record's a stunner – maybe the one that will finally break Escoffery to a bigger global audience – and even if it doesn't, it's one you'll be loving for years – which we know we will. Titles include "Love Shine Down", "Evergreen", "Healing Me", "When Love Is Gone", "Here Comes The Rain Again", "Lost For Words", "Win Again", and "Teachers". CD

The legendary first album by Larry Graham and Graham Central Station – Larry's bold move away from Sly & The Family Stone, and the beginning of a new dynasty in mainstream funk! Larry's bass work really drives the set along – pushing the riffing guitars over the top of the heavy drums in a style that's tight, but never too "easy" – still with enough of the raw energy of his roots, despite the later crossover fame of the set. All tracks are Graham originals – except for a version of Al Green's "It Ain't No Fun To Me" – and titles include "Tell Me What It Is", "Ghetto", "Can You Handle It?", "Hair", "We Be's Gettin' Down", and "People".

Classic 70s southern soul from Roy C – a brilliant follow-up to his excellent Sex & Soul album, but a great little record that more than stands on its own! Although Roy's roots are in New York City, his sound here is one that echoes strongly with the changes going on down in the Memphis, Jackson, and Miami soul scenes at the time – an approach to southern soul that still maintains the rootsiness of the vocals, yet which wraps them up in a warmer, more adult sort of mode – almost inspired by the work of Al Green, but a bit more down home. Titles include "From The Outside Looking In", "Sure Nuff In Love With You", "After Loving You", "Show Me Love, I'll Show You Pain", and "Great Great Grandson Of A Slave". CD

Benny JohnsonVisions Of Paradise ... CD
Today/Soul Brother (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $9.99
A sublime bit of indie soul from the early 70s – the one and only album by vocalist Benny Johnson, recorded with some totally great backings from funk legend Julius Brockington and his United Chair combo! For the session, Brockington chose a warm, organ-drenched sound that's a fair bit like some of the best work coming out of Hi Records at the same time – although without as much of a southern soul approach overall. Johnson's vocals have a beautifully crackling sort of quality – one that's honest and human, but still smooth enough to fit the mode of the music here – a bit like Al Green, but a little more east coast overall. The set's got some excellent mellow soul numbers that are worth the price of admission alone – tracks that slide out beautifully with a really gentle sound, and bubble up with a tremendous amount of soul. But there's also some fuller, more upbeat tunes too – groovers that have made the album a favorite overseas for years! Titles include "Visions Of Paradise", "Stop Me", "Give It Up", "Second To None", "Won't You Stay", "It's Yours Baby", "Please Come Back", and "I Just Got To Know". CD

An artist you might not know at all – but one you'll be digging plenty after hearing this wonderful set! Richard Marks is a guitarist and singer with a very funky, very gritty sound – really right up there with the best of the funky 45 underground of the time – which makes this overstuffed package feel like you've just inherited a sweet stack of rare 7" singles!

Titles include "Funky Fingers", "Never Satisfied", "Don't Take It Out On Me", "I'm With You Love", "Pretty Woman Pass On By", "Innocent Bystander", "Speak Now", "Purple Haze", "Why Did You Leave Me", and "Crackerjack".

Hi Records/Fat Possum, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 17.99
A really well-selected batch of tracks from the Hi Records years of the legendary Ann Peebles – one of the deepest female soul singers of the 70s! Ann was the female equivalent of Al Green for the label – their female powerhouse singer, always at the top of their roster – and always getting top-shelf help from superproducer Willie Mitchell – who makes these sides as smooth and seductive as he did for Al Green's great run of records for Hi Records! Peebles hit Hi as an artist who was already very fully-formed – thanks to early years in gospel, and work in the group of Oliver Sain – and right away, her records for the company started burning hard – and didn't stop at all until her move towards retirement at the end of the 70s. Tracks here are most of the best from those years – and include "I Can't Stand The Rain", "Walk Away", "Part Time Love", "Give Me Some Credit", "Do I Need You", "Dr Love Power", "Old Man With Young Ideas", "I Didn't Take Your Man", "I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down", "Somebody's On Your Case", "Slipped Tripped & Fell In Love", and "Breaking Up Somebody's Home".

As with Green's Hi Records of the time, Willie Mitchell is firmly in charge of production and backings – working with that warmly glowing Memphis soul style that carved whole new territory in soul music for the 70s – a maturing and mellowing of earlier southern modes, in a way that helps Peebles hit some fresh and uncliched sounds with her vocals. At a time when so many other singers were trying to copy Aretha, Ann's approach is mighty fresh – as you'll hear on tracks that include "I Take What I Want", "Slipped Tripped & Fell In Love", "What You Laid On Me", "Trouble Heartaches & Sadness", "99 Pounds", "I've Been There Before", and "Somebody's On Your Case".

The sound is impeccable – about as classic as you can get for Hi – and titles include a number of great Willie Mitchell originals – including "I Feel Love Growin", "The Time We Have", and "You Gotta Have Love".

BBE (UK), 1970s. Used ... $9.99
Bury your love deep, deep down with ?uestlove – a soundtrack compilation of strangely sweet soul misery – and the superior sequel to the Babies Makin' Babies set on BBE! This time ?uestlove programs a number of 70s soul tunes, some relatively rare, which provide the bittersweet sounds of heartbreak. Many of the tracks have the lightly symphonic mellow soul sound that dominated the first Babies Makin' Babies set, with others that put more of a focus on the electric keys, and simmering funk number or two for good measure. A great listen – as both a thematic showpiece and as straightforward soul compilation! Tracks include "Our Love Has Died" by Ohio Players, "Mother And Son Bedroom Talk" by Blackbyrds, "Anti Love Song" by Betty Davis, "If You Don't Love Me" by DJ Rogers, "Cause We Ended As Lovers" by Syreeta, "I'm Sorry" by Delfonics, "I Almost Lost My Mind" by Albert King, "That's The Way I Feel About Cha" by Bobby Womack, "You're Supposed To Keep Your Love For Me" by Jermaine Jackson, "One Look Over My Shoulder" by Average White Band and "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart" by Al Green.

Hi Records/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
Think you know Hi Records? Guess again – because this sublime set of rarities has way more Memphis soul than just the work of Al Green, Ann Peebles, and Willie Mitchell! The special package features lots of lesser-known cuts from the vaults of Hi – including a fair bit of upbeat singles that showcase more of a dancefloor soul side of the legendary imprint – music that's still got a fair bit of deep soul in the vocals, but which also shows a bit more Memphis snap in the rhythms – a great mixing of modes that lies in a space that's somewhere between Northern and Southern soul standards of the time. There's a huge amount of tracks here we'd somehow missed over the years – and titles include "Stepchild" by Venice, "So Good To Me" by George Jackson, "Help Yourself" by 5 Royals, "Farmer John" by Four Kings, "Hitchhike To Heartbreak Road" by Bobo Mr Soul, "Save The Last Dance For Me" by Henry Shed, "Frankenstein Walk" by Gene Miller, "I Want To Be There" by The Four Kings, "We've Got Everything" by T 99, "Hard Luck" by Bobby McClure, "Still Around" by James Fry, and "The Way You Do The Things You Do" by Ebony Web.

The package is one of the best so far in this annual series – and like the others, it has a great way of turning up unusual numbers we might have missed otherwise – some subtle gems and overlooked sleepers, which makes the package as much of a place for new discovery as it is a musical bargain.

Despite that lack, though, the grooves are very much in the best Basie mode – full of soul and searing horn lines – at a level that makes the album one of Sarah's liveliest from the time! Players include Thad Jones and Joe Newman on trumpet, Al Grey on trombone, Frank Foster and Frank Wess on tenor, and Freddie Green on guitar – and Ronnell Bright handles the piano, instead of Basie.

Cobblestone, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the hippest funky jazz combos of the 70s – stepping out here in their amazing debut for Cobblestone records! Catalyst had a groove that was unlike most of their contemporaries – a sound that was often jazzier than some of the tighter funk artists on labels like Kudu or Prestige, with some deeply spiritual leanings in the solos – but also a style that was still pretty tight and focused, not as far out as some of the headier groups on the Strata East label. There's loads of great choppy rhythms and tight-edged grooves on the record – thanks to Fender Rhodes from Eddie Green, reeds from Odeon Pope, bass from Al Johnson, and drums and percussion from Sherman Ferguson. Skip Drinkwater produced the session at Sigma Sound, and it's definitely got some of his hallmark appreciation of rhythm in the mix – on titles that include "Ain't It The Truth", "New Found Truths", "East", "Catalyst Is Coming", "Jabali", and "Salaam".

Although Wright had sometimes been bluesier in the past, his late 70s Hi sides have a much mellower, mature sort of feel – a ripening of the seeds in his Backbeat label work, taken to nice new heights at Hi in the hands of Willie Mitchell. Mitchell's backings have a feel that's somewhat like his work with Al Green, but OV's style of singing is completely different – not as overtly sexy, but really personal in approach. Titles include "That's The Way I Feel About Cha", "A Little More Time", "I Don't Know Why", "No Easy Way To Say Goodbye", "Let's Straighten It Out", and "The Bottom Line". CD

Don't let the "horns" in the title put you off – because the record's not a hokey "with horns" record by Miles, but a batch of all-star sessions that has him playing with some really tremendous contemporaries! The set compiles early Miles Davis sides from two different Prestige sessions of the early 50s – material originally issued as 10 inch LPs, but brought together here in a very cool full length package with a cover image by Mad Magazine's Don Martin! Side one features Miles with a sextet that includes Sonny Rollins, Bennie Green, John Lewis, Percy Heath, and Roy Haynes – on the tracks "Morpheus", "Down", "Blue Room", and "Whispering" – all taken in a boppish mode, but with slight modern touches. Side two features the compositions of Al Cohn – "Tasty Pudding", "Floppy", "Willie The Wailer", and "For Adults Only" – played by a septet that features Cohn, Zoot Sims, John Lewis, Kenny Clarke, Leonard Gaskin, and Sonny Truitt – a very nice match to the sound of side one, and a surprisingly unified record overall!

Even in this more traditional format, Horace Parlan's still one of the most inventive players of his generation – working with a sense of bottom groove that makes even familiar tunes move nicely, and hitting an approach to his solo work that trades flowery touches for earthier tones that often dance around each other with a focused sound that's really unique! Dark and blue tones echo out wonderfully throughout the set, and Horace's piano is backed by the extremely thoughtful bass work of Sam Jones and drums of Al Harewood – on tunes that include "Up In Cynthia's Room", "C Jam Blues", "Bag's Groove", "On Green Dolphin Street", and "Lady Bird".

Zack O'Malley Greenburg3 Kings – Diddy, Dr Dre, Jay Z, & Hip Hop's Multibillion Dollar Rise (hardcover) ... Book
Little Brown, 2018. New Copy ... $6.99 28.00
A detailed look at the moment when hip hop went from a sideline to a mainstream force in the music business – a time when producers became executives, major labels allowed smaller boutique imprints, and everybody started making a lot more money on the music! As you'd guess from the title, the book follows the rise of Dr Dre, Jay Z, and Diddy – three of the biggest forces to go from the streets to the boardrooms – but the author also paints a much wider, more vibrant picture too – never too entranced by the stardom of the trio, and instead able to place their success in a longer narrative of hip hop recording, one in which many others never got a piece of the pie. 307 pages, hardcover, with some black and white images. Book

Jackie Edwards & SoulmakersVamp/Let Me Love You ... 7-inch
Daran, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Excellent trippy instrumentals from Chicago! "The Vamp" has some great chromatic guitar – a bit like Cal Green, with touches of Wes Montgomery – over a hard rolling organ on the beat groove. Tasty stuff – the kind of single that would blow the speakers off your jukebox, if you let it! "Let Me Love You" has more of that great guitar and organ – a bit dreamier, but still pretty damn nice! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Gil MelleAndromeda Strain ... LP
Kapp, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Amazing stuff from the legendary jazz musician Gil Melle! By this time in his career, Melle had dropped his standard baritone – and had begun experimenting with loads of early electronics. This wild score features a mostly electronic set of tracks, played with the kind of roughness you might expect from the contemporaneous Silver Apples (also on Kapp), but without their bent towards rock music. The whole thing's one of the best electronic scores ever, and it's darn tough to find in any format! Titles include "Strobe Crystal Green", "Piedmont Elegy", "Xenogenesis", "Desert Trip", and "Wildfire". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Delvon Lamarr Organ TrioClose But No Cigar ... CD
Colemine, 2018. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An organ trio, and one with plenty of soul – romping drums, riffing guitar, and some mighty sweet work on the Hammond by Delvon Lamarr! This is the first we've ever heard of the group, but they're rock solid and right on the money – working with a lean, hard style that's completely classic, but also a bit contemporary too – maybe swinging in the best sort of space between the Jack McDuff Quartet of the 60s and the Sugarman Three group of Desco Records fame! David McGraw handles the drums with a clear love of funk, and Jimmy James is wonderfully wicked on guitar – never trying to dominate too much, as there's no need – given how much he brings to the overall groove. Delvon's a hell of an organist too – the kind that knows that a little can often go much farther than a lot when handling the electric keys – which he does to set up some sweet solos on cuts that include "Ain't It Funky", "Al Greenery", "Can I Change My Mind", "Walk On By", "Between The Mustard & The Mayo", "Raymond Brings The Greens", and "Little Booker T".

✨✧ FallHex Enduction Hour By The Fall (3LP green & white vinyl set with bonus 7 inch single) ... LP
Kamera/Cherry Red (UK), 1982. New Copy 3LP & 7 inch (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of our key go-to albums by The Fall – a set in which all their early promise really came into focus – with even more wit and power than before! The jagged lyricism of Mark E Smith is razor-sharp – as is the instrumentation, which is heavy on that trademark noisy guitar from Craig Scanlon, weird keyboards from Marc Riley, and the driving power of the double drummers in the group! The music is every bit as textually explosive as the words on the cover – and titles include "Who Makes The Nazis", "And This Day", "Jawbone & The Air Rifle", "The Classical", "Mere Psued Mag Ed", "Fortress/Deer Park", and the classic "Hip Priest". 3LP version also features rare material – from a 1981 John Peel Session, and live tracks recorded in Manchester and New Zealand! Also features a bonus 7" single with "Look Know". LP, Vinyl record album

Greens IIIRazor ... CD
Malaco/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $9.99
Three gals – all named Greene – coming together in a sweet 80s update of girl group modes! There's a style here that's definitely in the same territory as the Mary Jane Girls – lots of catchy lyrics and sweet bubbling electro rhythms – but the girls also have this really stripped-down style that's very much their own – and which makes the whole album feel like finding a batch of obscure indie soul 45s from the period – filled with tunes that might have made the big time, had they gotten a little more push and polish. Yet it's that lack of polish we like the best about the record, and which sets it apart from the mainstream pack – and titles include "Be Mine", "You Want My Body", "3D", "Falling In Love", and "Burn This Place".

Ronnie ScottLive At The Jazz Club ... CD
Esquire/Solid (Japan), 1952/1953. Used ... $9.99
Early live material from British tenor giant Ronnie Scott – sides not recorded at his own famous club, but by the BBC for broadcast – which maybe makes them some of Scott's first recordings of this nature, and certainly some of the best from the time! The first large chunk of material features Ronnie heading up an octet – not only blowing freely, in some of his best bop modes of the time – but also really showing off his talent as an arranger – in front of musicians who include Jimmy Deuchar on trumpet, Derek Humble on alto, Benny Green on baritone sax, and Norman Stenfalt on piano. The same group plays on the rest of the tracks, with the addition of Peter King on tenor sax – and titles include "All The Things You Are", "The Champ", "Popo", "Pantagrulian", "Mullenium", "The Nearness Of You", and "Nemo".

A heavy helping of Detroit Love – and one that will also make you love Detroit too – or, at least, completely respect the city for having such a continually rewarding underground over the last few decades – long after the possibility of chart hits or bigger fame have passed! Detroit's electronic scene first got notice at the end of the 80s – when its own grooves were rising to rival the house music coming from Chicago – and while that moment sparked some big international fame, the decades have continued to see the city working to improve, refine, and mature their initial impulses – with the sorts of fantastic sounds that you'll hear in this set! Not all the music is new, but most of it is – and the set combines some wonderfully fresh tracks from the Carl Craig side of the universe – both his own music, and work by key contemporaries too – with titles that include "It Is What It Is" by Rhythim Is Rhythim, "Rosalie" by Green Velvet & Carl Craig, "Do It All Night (C2 edit)" by DJ Minx, "Credit Card (Gay Marvine rmx)" by BMG & Sal P, "Satori" by Ectomorph, "Formulaic Mode" by Mirko Loko & Stacey Pullen, "My Love Check" by Claude Vonstroke, and "Alleys Of Your Mind" by The Dirtbombs.

✨✧ Charlie RichToo Many Teardrops – The Complete Groove & RCA Recordings ... CD
RCA/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great look at a really lost legacy in music from Charlie Rich – obscure sides recorded for RCA Records in the early 60s – done after his initial rush of genius on Sun Records, and before his later commercial success on Epic! Charlie's got one of the all-time great voices in pop music – a richness that easily rivals that of Memphis contemporary Elvis Presley, and which never fully got its due at the time – even though labels like RCA and Smash provided Rich with some fantastic material and production! Charlie's work for Smash has been picked up by the cognoscenti in recent years, and we'd honestly put these RCA tracks right up alongside them – with a similar Tennessee blend of soul and rock, rural and urban – all delivered by Charlie's incredibly charming vocal approach, and recorded with a depth that goes way beyond the usual RCA production modes of the time. There's plenty of currents of soul in the mix – even some New York-styled modes, which really work well with Rich – and this 40 track set is the first time this material has ever been pulled together – long-overdue, and a real treat to our ears! Titles include "Like Someone In Love", "Lady Love", "Nice & Easy", "Big Boss Man", "It's All Over Now", "The Grass Is Always Greener", "Now Everybody Knows", "My Mountain Dew", "The Big Build Up", "She Called Me Baby", "Gentleman Jim", "Christmas Greetings", "All Of My Friends Are Gonna Be Strangers", "Is Goodbye That Easy To Say", "Tragedy", "Ten Dollars & A Clean White Shirt", "Tomorrow Night", and "No Room To Dance".

Impulse/Universal (Japan), 1966/1967. New Copy ... About June 24, 2020
One of the first big moments of Albert Ayler's work in the jazz mainstream – and a record that doesn't dim his greatness at all from the earlier sides recorded for ESP! The album's got a sharply angular sound that more than lives up to its vibrant cover image – a well-honed approach to improvisation, showcased by Ayler in a set of recordings done upon his return from work on the European scene. The material was recorded on two different dates – featuring two different groups: one with Alan Silva, Beaver Harris, and Joel Friedman; the other with Donald Ayler, Henry Grimes, and Michel Sampson. Titles are long, with the searing emotional sound that Ayler was peaking at during this time – and titles include "For John Coltrane", "Change Has Come", and "Truth is Marching On". CD

70s album that compiles sides from 2 different Donald Byrd albums on Savoy – both from 1955, when Byrd was getting his start as a hard bop youngster, and both recorded with Frank Foster on tenor, Hank Jones on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums. Tracks are long, with a nice groove, and although Byrd's soloing is a bit rough, it's also got a good edge to it. Titles include "Winterset", "Gotcha Goin n Comin", "Star Eyes", and "Long Green".

Bennie GreenWalking Down ... CD
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1956. Used ... $28.99
A stone classic from the great Bennie Green – working here at a sharp 50s level that easily makes him one of the most hard-edged players in jazz at the time! Bennie's rooted in bop, but has plenty of deeper soulful elements too – a groove that others would expand more in the soul jazz generation, but which Green unleashes here with a really raw sort of energy – a tightness that's almost more suited to the trumpet than modes you'd usually hear from other trombonists. The setting's almost a blowing session one, but a bit tighter overall – and the quintet features Eric Dixon on tenor and Lloyd Mayers on piano – plus raw rhythms from Sonny Wellesley on bass and Bill English on drums. Titles include "East Of The Little Big Horn", "Walkin Down", and "But Not For Me". CD

Garland Green's always great to our ears – and these two sides are mighty nice! Both cuts were recorded with Brad Shapiro, the genius of southern soul who was bringing a lot of modern touches to the genre in the early 70s. The sound and style is a lot mellower than Garland's work on Uni – very laidback, with a warm and bubbly finish that works well with his vocals – especially on "Please Come Home"! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Surprisingly striking work from Burton Greene – an album of solo work, but one that's filled with all the tones and sounds that justify the "orchestra" in the title! Greene plays piano and keyboards, working in an evocative style that overflows with the kind of exploratory energy that characterized his recordings of the late 60s and early 70s – a bit trippy at times, but very direct at others, and awash in shades of juxtaposing sound. Includes 3 long tracks – "Toy-mita Orchestra Variations" by Charles Ives, "Night Music For A Summer Afternoon" by Bela Bartok, and "The Horny Orchestra Suite" by Bob Graettinger. CD

Piero UmilianiColpo Gobbo All'Italiana (180 gram green vinyl pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
GDM/Overdrive (Italy), 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Really warm, whimsical early work from Piero Umiliani – music that comes from his first few years in the soundtrack scene, but which already shows some of the differences that set him apart from the rest! Some tracks are straight jazz, but done in a way that echoes some of the hipper, modern tones on the Roman scene – and are recorded with that unusual sense of Umiliani sound, which can make the familiar feel strangely fresh, and almost unsettling. Other tunes offer playful melodies, but with offbeat instrumentation – an odd-tuned piano on one number, guitar and percussion on another, weird woodwinds on a third – so that the sonic palette is changed up nicely, and balanced well against the jazz in the mix! Titles include "La Nottola Di Notto", "Colpo Gobbo All'Italiana", "Lolita", and "Quello Che Bolle In Pentola". Features five bonus tracks too! LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really fantastic album from guitarist Grant Green – a set that's every bit as great as his other Blue Note funk albums from the time – but in a very different way! First off, the group has vibes – played by the more obscure Willie Bivens, sometimes with this hard chromatic sound that's really wonderful – especially when combined by the organ work on the set by Ronnie Foster and Neal Creque – both very cool players with an unusual conception – which sends the whole thing off in very hip territory! The mighty Idris Muhammad plays drums – ensuring a very tight bottom – and the group also features Claude Bartee on tenor, who has a strong, soulful vibe. The set includes a fantastic live version of "Down Here On the Ground" – famously sampled by Tribe Called Quest – and other highlights include heavy funk takes on "Let The Music Take Your Mind" and "Sookie Sookie", and the Creque original "Time To Remember".

Amazing sounds from pianist Burton Greene – a modernist who's been quietly continuing a great legacy of creative music he started in the 60s – still sounding distinct and full of imagination in this well-recorded recent trio performance! The set has Greene working with Damon Smith on bass and Ra Kalam Bob Moses on drums and percussion – both musicians whose overall sense of sound matches the wideness of Burton's scope – which makes the whole thing way way different than any familiar sort of trio recording! Instead, the balance swings easily between each of the three points on the triangle, but with different moments of force that keep things very lively, and very compelling – on titles that include the three part title track "Life's Intense Mystery", plus "Anything That Ain't Yes Get Rid Of It", "Kid Play", and "Perc Waves".

Smalls Live, 2010. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Jimmy Greene really knocks it out of the park with this cooking live set – showing us again that he's definitely a tenor talent to watch – one with a depth of soulfulness that stretches back to some of the more righteous players of the 60s, but with a contemporary vibe too – one that's very much at home in this Smalls Live setting! Tracks are all nice and long, and draw a lot of energy from the bold piano lines of Xavier Davis – who seems to be a great partner for Greene on the recording, really helping to shape and direct the flow of his tenor lines. There's almost a modal aspect to the record at times – although one led more by Davis' piano, instead of the bass of Ugonna Okegwo and drums of Gregory Hutchinson. Titles include "Sense Of Urgency", "Self Portrait 1", "Soul Music", "Home", and "Bloomfield". CD
