✨✧ Lou DonaldsonAlligator Bogaloo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent funky work from Lou Donaldson – and a groundbreaking record that was the first to feature him playing on Blue Note with drummer Idris Muhammad – who is listed on the session under his birth name, Leo Morris! Muhammad gives the album that crackling funky bottom sound that instantly defined Lou's later years at Blue Note – a hard and heavy approach to soul jazz that's had incredible repercussions in the world of hip hop, as well as soul and funk. The rest of the group features soul jazz burners Lonnie Smith on organ, Melvin Lastie on trumpet, and George Benson on guitar – and the album includes the highly successful "Alligator Boogaloo", plus hard groovers "The Thang", "Aw Shucks!", and "One Cylinder". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Railroad Ave BulliesAlligator Shoes/She Ready ... 7-inch
Lugnut Brand, 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Lots of fuzzy guitar on this one – riffing away with a monstrous sound, while the heavy drums at the core do a nice job of romping away with the groove! The tune's kind of an updated take on the psychedelic soul mode – and is backed by "She Ready", which has more of a 60s boogaloo soul sound – James Brown Band riffing, and some nice organ in the mix! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Lou DonaldsonScorpion – Live At The Cadillac Club ... CD
Blue Note (UK), 1970. Used ... $11.99
Rare work from funky Lou – unreleased for years! This is an excellent live set that was recorded in 1970, when Lou was at the height of his Blue Note powers, and working with a group that included Idris Muhammad (drums), Melvin Sparks (guitar), and Leon Spencer (organ). Recorded live at the Cadillac Club in Newark, New Jersey, this set's a perfect document of what a funky lounge gig was like in the era of the organ/tenor combos. The group swings hard and funky, with a sound that's like their best Blue Note recordings, and the track list includes "Peepin", "The Scorpion", "Alligator Boogaloo", and "Footpattin' Time". CD
(Part of the Rare Groove series. Columbia House club pressing.)

✨✧ Screamin' Jay HawkinsCow Fingers & Mosquito Pie ... CD
Epic/Legacy, Mid 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This is the real deal for Screamin Jay Hawkins – the seminal 50s recordings done for the Okeh label, all of which are a lot harder and heavier than some of his later work! The format is simple R&B, but Screamin Jay brings a heck of a lot of himself to the sessions – singing in a raspy, raw sort of way that really lives up to his name – and hitting a variety of fresh and funky subjects in the lyrics – hardly the usual stuff of 50s bluesy recordings! Titles include the classic "I Put A Spell On You", plus 20 more tracks that include "Yellow Coat", "You Made Me Love You", "Little Demon", "Hong Kong", "Alligator Wine", "Person To Person", "Take Me Back To My Boots", "Darling Please Forgive Me", "Orange Colored Sky", "There's Something Wrong With You", and "Frenzy".

And, as always, there's plenty more great bits – a huge amount of music reviews, other news, and even a look at the mighty moog monster Mort Garson! Magazine

✨✧ Dizzy GillespieReal Thing ... LP
Perception, 1970. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Stunning funk from the great Dizzy Gillespie – light years away from his early bop recordings! The album's a slammin batch of 70s instrumentals – Dizzy's trumpet firmly in the lead over electric backings that have more than a bit of funk in them. The bass is the main driving factor of the tunes – played either by Phil Upchurch or Chuck Rainey – and the tracks bounce along with a fierce and righteous groove that also includes hard riffing on guitar and some sweet piano lines. Players include Mike Longo, James Moody, and Bernard Purdie – and tracks include "N'Bani", "Matrix", "Soul Kiss", "Ding A Ling", and "Alligator". Great stuff, and a crucial album in Dizzy's lost career! Damn funky, too. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Vinyl plays with a short click on "Closer".)

✨✧ Pierre DorgeSoundscapes ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Guitarist Pierre Dorge has been giving us amazing music for many years – but he sounds especially amazing here in the company of a really great group – the excellent Kirk Knuffke on cornet, plus Stephen Riley on tenor, Conrad Herwig on trombone, Jay Anderson on bass, and Adam Nussbaum on drums – all very dynamic players who seem to make Dorge sound even fresher than ever! There's an especially strong sense of phrasing on the record – no surprise, especially with Knuffke in the mix – and while Pierre can sometimes use his instrument in more abstract ways, that quality is really balanced by all the other members of the lineup. Anderson's bass is great – nicely pointed at the best moments, and a great contrast to Dorge's strings – and all tracks are originals, with titles that include "Lullaby For Sun Ra", "Mingus' Birthday Party", "Afrikaa Mbizo Dyani", "Sim Sim Ba", and "Alligator In Paradise".

Bobby CharlesAlligators, Sprockets, & Bended Knees ... CD
Jasmine (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $9.99 16.99
A huge collection of work from the great Bobby Charles – a sometimes-overlooked figure in late 50s music, but a key force in developing the sound of Louisiana at the time! Bobby hailed from the cajun part of the state, but also drank heavily from the R&B that was brewing up in New Orleans – and the records within are part of a fantastic genre-crossing legacy that's always gotten Charles equal interest from fans of older rock and soul! The package is very heavy on key material that Bobby recorded for Chess Records, including a number of tracks that were not issued at the time – and the set also features some later singles for Imperial, which continue the kind of Crescent City soulfulness that Bobby really helped forge with a few key contemporaries as the start of a much bigger legacy to come. The set features 48 tracks in all – with titles that include "Oh Yeah", "Since She's Gone", "Watch It Sprocket", "I'm A Fool To Care", "Mr Moon", "Ain't Got No Home", "Laura Lee", "Take It Easy Greasy", "One Eyed Jack", "No More", "You Can Suit Yourself", "On Bended Knee", "Hey Good Lookin", "Why Did You Leave", "Your Picture", "Good Lovin", "Those Eyes", and "What A Party". Also includes a few bonus tracks that show Bobby's influence on other artists – tracks by Fats Domino, Clarence Henry, John Fred, and Bill Haley. CD

✨✧ VariousBehind The Dykes – Beat, Blues, & Psychedelic Nuggets From The Lowlands 1964 to 1972 (colored vinyl pressing) (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Decca/Music On Vinyl (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Well, they spelled "dikes" wrong in the title – but we can hardly fault them for that, as the set is a stunning batch of work from the Dutch scene at the end of the 60s – a really surprising powerhouse of new ideas and mindblowing music! Maybe that's no surprise, given the proximity of The Netherlands to the UK – which also means that the scene was probably drinking up as much pirate radio as listeners in London – and there's definitely work here to match some of the hippest Brit groups on Decca from the same generation. The set is huge 37 tracks in all – with work from The Sound Of Imker, Painting House, Supersister, The Tykes, Modesy Blaise, Names & Faces, Powera, The Heralds, Scarlets, Short 66, The Counts, Baldwin, BNZ, Dimitri, The Bumble Bees, The Boggy Green Selection, The Haigs, Amnsterdam, Airport, Jug Session, Alligatorman, World, The Freddies, and Nanda. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited, numbered pressing – on yellow and turquoise vinyl!)
