✨✧ Fenton RobinsonSomebody Loan Me A Dime (2nd pressing) ... LP
Alligator, 1974. Sealed ... $19.99
One of the better albums on the Alligator Records label from Chicago – a set by Fenton Robinson that's not far different from his earlier work on the 77/Sound Stage Seven label – which means that there's more of a southern soul vibe to the record at times than some of the more crowd-pleasing groups that Alligator was recording up north! Fenton has the tightness of a deep soul singer, but also relaxes nicely into his music – often letting his guitar speak as much as his lyrics – with help on second guitar from Mighty Joe Young! Easily one of the greatest albums from both Fenton and Alligator – with titles that include "I've Changed", "Country Girl", "Gotta Wake Up", "Texas Flood", "Checking On My Woman", and "Somebody Loan Me A Dime". LP, Vinyl record album

Luther AllisonLuther's Blues (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Motown/Universal, 1974. Used ... $9.99
One of the only blues records you'll ever find on Motown – and a mostly straight blues affair with a hard electric sound to it. The album's mostly in the early Alligator Records camp – but there's a few nice funky cuts, like "Now You Got It" and "Into My Life", which both have strong rhythm backing, and a smoother groove that kind of cuts the blues quotient a bit. That's a good thing for us, in case you couldn't tell! CD

Dizzy GillespieReal Thing ... CD
Perception/Octave (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
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 – a bit like his Soul Salvation record, and but slightly more open overall – with a groovy vibe throughout! 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. CD

Fumio ItabashiTOH ... LP
Frasco/Universal (Japan), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $47.99 54.99 About December 7, 2022
Sublime 70s work from pianist Fumio Itabashi, easily one of our favorite Japanese talents of the time – a pianist with a wonderful sense of rhythm and freedom at the same time – very much on display on this beautiful record! The tracks are long and flowing – full of feeling, and as lyrical at times as they are rhythmic – set up with perfect trio accompaniment that features Tsutomu Okada on bass and Takuji Kusimoto on drums – working with Fumio in this special sort of magic that's a bit hard to put in words, but which really demonstrates on record why this moment in Japanese jazz was such a special time! Ties include "TOH", "Alligator Dance", and "Goodbye". LP, Vinyl record album

Jazz A La Mode TrioLess Is More ... CD
Cinedelic (Italy), 2013. New Copy Gatefold ... $8.99
A sweet Italian combo, and one who's got a very classic soul jazz sort of feel – a 60s-styled blend of Hammond and tenor that's mighty nice, and very much in the spirit of the vintage look of the cover! The record's got a great no-nonsense feel – just the right production to fit the group's soaring organ lines and hard-biting saxophone – spun out here over a host of classics from 60s, plus a few tasty originals too. The combo features Fabio Nobile on drums – who you might know from previous work in a more contemporary style – plus Sam Gambarini on Hammond, Alessandro Scala on tenor, and some guest trumpet from Marco Tamburini. Titles include "Bus Ride", "Money In The Pocket", "Fire Eater", "Funkallero", "Mambo In", "This I Dig Of You", and "Alligator Boogaloo". CD

Amanda LearI Am A Photograph ... LP
Chrysalis, 1977. Very Good ... $6.99
The standout set from Amanda Lear – a model turned singer, and one of the more striking crossover divas of the disco era! Lear's got previous ties to Salvador Dali and David Bowie, but she keeps things relatively straight ahead on this debut album – using accented vocals that recall an earlier Hildegard Knef singing in English, set to streaming Euro disco grooves that fit very well with the approach. Lear's not nearly the most soulful singer you'll ever hear, but her approach is certainly striking – especially on the album's best tracks. Titles include the classic "I Am A Photograph", plus "Alphabet", "Blood & Honey", "Tomorrow", "Pretty Boys", "Alligator", and "La Bagarre". LP, Vinyl record album
(German pressing. Cover has light wear.)

VariousGroovadelia – Contemporary Funk, Soul & Groove From Spain ... CD
Vampi Soul (Spain), 2006. New Copy 2CD ... $9.99 24.99
A wealth of grooves from one of the most surprising entries into the global funk scene of the 21st Century! The words "Spain" and "funk" aren't often used in the same sentence, but that's probably about to change – thanks to the efforts of all the artists on this set! As the collection shows, there's a heck of a lot of great little combos bubbling underground these days in Spain – groups who work in a mix of deep funk, soul jazz, and mod-styled rhythms – often with plenty of organ, guitar, or classic funk elements – in a groove that's sometimes instrumental, but which can also feature a fair bit of soul-styled vocals as well! The 2CD set is overflowing with great work – a total of 20 tracks in all that includes "Freedom" by Funxplosion, "I Turned You On" by Phat Fred, "Thriller" by Speak Low, "Royale 2006" by Guateque All Stars, "La Chica Humeda (parts 1 & 2)" by Ortophonk, "Friday Night" by Pybus Groove Quartet, "I Got You Man" by The Sweet Vandals, "Get Up & Dance" by Funkdacion, "Get It & Get On (extended)" by Clan Club, "Tu M'Enerves" by Cinnamon Gum, "Say It Loud" by Celofunk, "Pampi's Groove" by Asstrio, "Soul Drummer" by Los Fulanos, "A New One" by Watch Out, "Change Your Name" by Koniec, and "Think" by The Sir Alligator's Company.

VariousKickin Presents – Rhythm Perception – DJ's Choice 1970 to 1975 ... CD
Perception/Octave (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $24.99
Back in the early 70s, the Perception label was one of the hippest new record companies to come up on the scene – a very cool, very forward-thinking company that did a great job of blending together jazz, funk, and soul – sometimes with older artists looking to find a new way forward, sometimes with younger acts that were given a lot of freedom by the label! This set's a great overview of the Perception sound at its best – and the collection not only brings together some killer funky jazz and soul material, but also throws in a few surprises from the world of Brazilian music and soundtracks as well! Titles include "Jaded Jackie" and "Rock Steady" by Julius Brockington, "Boogie" by John Bartel, "One Life" by The Albert, "Heritage Hum" by James Moody, "Take It Easy My Brother Charlie" by Astrud Gilberto, "N'Bani" and "Alligator" by Dizzy Gillespie, "Saudia" by Larry Young, "Baby I Love You" by Benny Johnson, "Chitlins & Chuchifritos" by Joe Thomas, "Submission" by Tyrone Washington, "Kiba" and "Dance Girl" by Fatback, "Soulful Brother On The Run" by Johnny Pate, and "Take My Love Don't Set Me Free" by The Eight Minutes.

✨✧ Dave FrishbergGetting Some Fun Out Of Life ... CD
Concord, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Dave Frishberg's always getting some fun out of life – given the way he pens these witty little tunes, and sings them with a hell of a lot of charm! And this album's one to feature Frishberg at all his charming best – still with the jaunty, edgey qualities we love so much in Oaklahoma Toad, but turned back more towards more traditional jazz elements too – all set nicely into a small combo jazz mode, with help from Bob Findley on trumpet and Marshall Royal on alto – both horn players who give the album a fleshed-out feel that's a nice change from some of Dave's more piano/vocal-based records. A number of the tunes are instrumental – with Frishberg on piano – and titles include "Lotus Blossom", "Dear Bix", "Violet Blue", "Old Man Harlem", "Save It Pretty Mama", "Alligator Crawl", and "In A Mist".

✨✧ Beau BrummelsTwo Days Til Tomorrow – The Warner Brothers Non-Album Singles 1966 to 1970 ... LP
Warner/Hanky Panky (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really wonderful work from one of our favorite groups on late 60s Warner Brothers – the mighty Beau Brummels, a group who were already years ahead of their time, and who also evolved strongly during the short span of time covered on this album! As you'd guess from the title, the collection features all sorts of great tracks that never appeared on the group's classic albums for Warner – spanning the psychedelic folk of their early years on the label, to the rich country-inspired sounds of their last – and also including a few solo tunes from singer Sal Valentino too! These aren't just throwaway cuts or covers, as many of them are originals – mostly penned by the great Ron Elliott – titles that include "I'm A Sleeper", "Cherokee Girl", "Long Walking Down To Misery", "Lift Me", "Lower Level", "Two Days Til Tomorrow", "She Reigns", and "Fine With Me". Also features nice remakes of "One Too Many Mornings" and "Don't Make Promises" – and Sal Valentino cuts "A Song For Rochelle", "Silkie", "Alligator Man", and "Friends & Lovers".

CerroneBest Of Cerrone ... LP
Malligator/Because (France), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99 29.99
A tremendous collection of work from the legendary Cerrone – one of the key forces in French disco of the 70s, and an artist who went on to have a huge impact on the sound of the dancefloor for decades to come! Cerrone's a master of minimal, repetitive rhythms – often stretched out on his early singles, and peppered with similar keyboards and electric elements to Giorgio Moroder's music of the time – but a bit warmer, sexier, and Frenchier overall! This set offers up 19 of Cerrone's classics from back in the day – many of which are served up in special funky edits for the package – with titles that include "Je Suis Music", "Supernature", "The Impact", "Give Me Love", "Freak Connection", "Love In C Minor", "You Are The One", "Bodytalk", "Hooked On You", "Rocket In The Pocket", "Club Underworld", and "Look For Love" – plus "2nd Chance", which features a guest appearance from Tony Allen.

Cerrone's going for a bit more of a rock-like sound here – stepping up the guitars in the mix, recording in LA, and including some distinct lead vocals that travel in more hook-heavy territory. There's still some nice smooth disco grooves on the set, touched here with some sweeter LA instrumentation and a bit of a sunny CA finish. Titles include "Call Me Tonight", "Living On Love", "Not Too Shabby", and "Rock Me". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Roky EricksonEvil One (purple vinyl pressing) ... LP
Light In The Attic, 1981. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Roky Erickson's fantastic early 80s material with The Aliens – tracks that were produced by Creedence Clearwater Revival's Stu Cook – with some of the most straight-forward and accessible rockers in Roky's canon, but still sporting his trademark eccentricity! Given his mythical personal history, you can easy describe Roky Erickson as "having demons" – but as you'll hear, he's also got two-headed dogs, vampires, zombies, fire demons, ghosts and Lucifer himself – just on this one record! The tracks have an odd release history – having been recorded in the late 70s, but not released until 1980 in the UK on the Five Symbols record, and in '81 as The Evil One LP, with an altered tracklist. This definitive Light In The Attic version gathers up all 15 amazing tracks from the Stu Cook sessions from '77-'79. Includes the legendary "Two Headed Dog" and many more tunes that are just as incredible! Titles include "I Walked With A Zombie", "Night Of The Vampire", "It's A Cold Night For Alligators", "Mine Mine Mind", "I Think Of Demons", "Creature With The Atom Brain", "Bloody Hammer", "Don't Shake Me Lucifer", "If You Have Ghosts" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(On "Hazy" purple vinyl!)
