Buari

Buari
RCA/Be With (UK), 1975. (reissue)
Maybe the best-known international album from Sidiku Buari – an artist who recorded some killer sets in his native Ghana, but who got a rare chance to work here in the US for this album – which features some tight funky elements by Bernard Purdie on drums, Paul Grivvin on keyboards, and ... LP, Vinyl record album (Global Grooves LP)

Bob Andy & Marcia Griffiths

Young Gifted & Black (red vinyl pressing)
Trojan (UK), 1970. (reissue)
An incredible duo, and one who look more like an American soul team on the front cover – and manage to deliver a similar vibe in the grooves! The style is definitely reggae, but as you'd guess from the Nina Simone cover in the title track, Bob Andy and Marcia Griffiths are also reaching out ... LP, Vinyl record album (Reggae LP)

Johnny Ray Daniels

Whatever You Need
Bible & Tire, 2022.
Soulful, spiritual sounds from North Carolina legend Johnny Ray Daniels – an artist who started out in soul, but soon found gospel more to his liking – then went on to create a decades-long legacy of wonderful music like this! The album's contemporary, but given a very old school ... CD (Gospel CD)

Gathering (Jesse Sharps)

Healing Suite
Village LA, 2022.
CD...$8.99 13.99
A really powerful project from the LA underground – served up by a group led by Jesse Sharps, who you may remember from classic albums on the Nimbus label – and done at a level that unites the sound of his generation with some of the best currents of more contemporary years! The lineup ... CD (Jazz CD)
Cadet/Anagram, 1968. Gatefold (reissue)
A really fantastic chapter in the career of the great Muddy Waters – a set that was initially dismissed as "inauthentic", but which has gone on to much-deserved fame over the years! Part of the genius here is the great Charles Stepney – that hip Chicago arranger who did so ... LP, Vinyl record album (Blues LP)
PTG (Netherlands), Mid 80s.
Disco funk and plenty more – all from this long-running series that only seems to dig deeper and deeper as time goes on! This time around, nearly all the cuts are ones you won't find elsewhere, especially on CD – with that special sort of 80s bent that the series always has, which ... CD (Funky Compilations CD)
Resonance, 1972. 3CD
Fantastic lost work from Charles Mingus, from a very under-recorded time in his life – the same period in which he gave the world the seminal album Let My Children Hear Music! The setting's a live one – and as on some of Mingus' superb 60s concert sessions, there's a force and fire ... CD (Jazz CD)

Ebirac All Stars & Others

Ebirac All Stars (blue vinyl pressing)
Ebirac/Numero, Late 70s/Early 80s.
Fantastic salsa sounds from Chicago – a city that's never been as well-known for the music as others on the coast – but which was home to the tiny but great Ebirac label – whose work is collected on this set! The package is an imagined compilation of key cuts that were only ... LP, Vinyl record album (Latin LP)

Courtial with Errol Knowles

Don't You Think It's Time (180 gram pressing)
Pipeline/Mad About Records (Portugal), 1976. (reissue)
A rare bit of Cali soul – and a lot groovier than you'd guess from the cover! The music is rich in jazzy inflections – funky fusion used behind the lead vocals of Errol Knowles, in a blend that's quite similar to the best Bay Area funk of the time – particularly some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)
No Business (Lithuania), 2002.
A great late performance by Sam Rivers – one that has the musician working with all the free-thinking imagination he gave the world on his groundbreaking improvisation albums of the 70s! Sam blows tenor and soprano here, but is also pretty amazing on piano and flute – and the rest of ... CD (Jazz CD)
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s.
A great entry in one of our favorite series for rare soul tracks these days – a really special sort of collection that brings together tracks with a vibe that's very much all its own! The set definitely serves up the "real side" that it promises in the title – tunes that aren' ... CD (Funky Compilations CD)
Fresh Sound (Spain), 1961. 2CD
Reedman Buddy Collette is best known for his west coast work of the 50s – his own albums as leader, his work with Chico Hamilton, and a number of other sessions too – yet his performances here in Italian sessions from the early 60s is completely revelatory – and arguably better ... CD (Jazz CD)
Columbia/Fresh Sound (Spain), Late 50s/Early 60s.
A treasure trove of rare work from the great Guy Lafitte – a rich-voiced tenor talent from the French scene of the postwar years – every bit as important to their world as Coleman Hawkins and Lester Young were to ours! Lafitte's a player who came up in larger groups – and as such ... CD (Jazz CD)
Ogun (UK), 1964.
A much-needed look at the early sound of The Blue Notes – a performance right before they left South Africa, and with a nicely different sound than some of their later London performances issued on the Ogun label! The group here are already very much in their own sound and spirit, but with ... CD (Jazz CD)
Treasure Isle/Doctor Bird (UK), Early 70s. 2CD
A really great look at the final years of the Treasure Isle label – a Jamaican imprint that was as important in the 60s as Studio One, and headed by the groundbreaking producer Duke Reid – a force maybe best known for ska and rocksteady, but still very much at the top of his game here! ... CD (Reggae CD)
Outta Sight (UK), Mid 70s.
Rare soul gems from the 70s – music from a really special slice of the decade – with sounds that have a great mellow groove – not really disco, but not ballads either – usually grooving in a midtempo mode that really lets the vocals take off and soar! The choice of cuts is ... LP, Vinyl record album (Funky Compilations LP)

Staples Jr Singers

When Do We Get Paid
Brenda/Luaka Bop, 1975.
A lost gospel treasure from this obscure Mississippi group – cut in the mid 70s, but with a stripped-down sound that's completely timeless overall! The Staples Jr Singers certainly have picked up some of the more righteous currents of mainstream soul and funk at the time – echoed both ... CD (Gospel CD)

Bill Heid

Dealin Wid It
Savant, 2022.
A warmly well-rounded set of organ jazz from Bill Heid – maybe not the biggest player on the Hammond B3, but one who's been slowly building up an excellent legacy of records like this! There's an understated grace to the way that Bill handles the instrument – he's not out to blow the ... CD (Jazz CD)
Joe Gibbs/17 North Parade, 1978. (reissue)
The first album from Culture, and still their most classic – a set that takes its title from a prediction by Marcus Garvey – who said that there would be trouble in the world when "two sevens clash" on July 7, 1977! Fortunately, we made it all through that date in one piece ... LP, Vinyl record album (Reggae LP)
Impulse, 1962. Gatefold (reissue)
A legendary meeting of two classic jazz talents late in their careers – in a setting that's ideal to bring out all the complexity of their well-honed genius! The approach of the album is mostly an Ellington one – as the group features some of Duke's stalwarts, like Ray Nance on trumpet ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
